Awakening.

Thin slivers of light ound their way cascading down the canopy of trees to the forest floor. The smell of dried blood permeated the air, its delicate flavor drifting throughout the woods, enticing predators and discouraging any prey from entering the area. Daylight had finally begun to approach, and yet the dense overhead only allowed a fraction of the days light in, bathing the ground in perpetual shadow.

Slowly, green eyes oppened to the world, a single ray of light piercing the lid of its owner, disturbing her from her rest. For a moment she began to take in her surroundings before she was overcome with the intense debilitating pain that accompanied her existance. Without restraint or containment she screamed as loud as her pain would let her, her eyes closed in submission. She writhed and rolled, her very nerves of fire, and yet the pain only intensified, causing her to try and force herself down.

With every bit of effort she stopped herself from screaming and moving, the pain still intense enough to bring tears through her closed lid. For a moment she sat there, trying to tie down the pain, trying to control herself, and after some amount of time had passed, again she opened her eyes, trying to find out where she was, if there was anyone to help her, anything.

It was then that she was greeted with eyes staring back at her, cold, emotionless, and pitch black. Attached to the eyes was a snout and mouth full of teeth that seemed to call her to die. Her heart jumped into her throat and if there had been anything in her bladder, it would have been on the tattered remains of her clothing.

Never taking her eyes off the creature she scooted back as much as she could, the pain resurfacing tenfold but her fear and adrenaline quelling it for just a moment. Back, back, back she went until she finally hit something solid. Soft, furry and solid.

And breathing.

The thump of her heart sounded like a beating drum, equally as terrifying as the sound of warriors approaching. A weak and fearful hand reached up and back, feeling the rough texture, the rise and fall of the beasts body confirming her fears. In the darkened light she could just barely make out the blood stained paintings on the ground. A half of a body was strewn around, its contents seemingly eviscerated.

She could vaugely remember two men, their faces, or their traits like a building in the fog, familiar and yet ungraspable. The only thing she could remember was the mans face, and some sort of gruff laughter and then darkness. It wasn't the time to be sorting through things like that though, the creature she had moved away from finally becoming more visible. Knowing what it looked like proved to be more frightening than simply seeing it up close. Its head was nothing short of frightening, but the muscular body and massive size made thinking of any sort of plan next to impossible. She doubted she could move more than a few feet, and the amount of pain she was in would cut that to nothing when it decided to attack. It looked like some sort of wolf dog hybrid, something she knew to be extremely dangerous, and she could only imagine that that was what was behind her.

She almost cried.

And then the beast simply turned around and laid down.

Daring to turn her head, she looked at the other creature. It was lying there, asleep.

What... The... Hell...

For a while she just laid there, her mind racing back and forth over scenarios and reasons. Why hadn't they attacked? Why were they there? What were they. She didn't think she would get any good answers from them, but it was wreaking havoc on her mind. HEer body was in just as bad of shape, the sudden movements hurting her even more than she had expected.

What happened to me... when am i in so much pain... everything is just so.... argh!

She was so exasperated, trying to put things together, it was like grasping at smoke, she could see its form but couldn't hold on to it no matter how much she tried. She saw faces, she saw people, she saw things, but none of them were familiar to her. Nothing stood out, nothing rang a bell. They were just images that were trapped in her head. It was not to mention that she could not remember her own self, but her body felt foregin to her as well. Nothing about it felt right, she felt heavier, less powerful, more condensed to herself, and yet she felt different too, lighter, like a burden had been lifted. That feeling though was odd, because she couldn't understand what it was. She felt free yet she didn't know any other feelings, she just knew that in her confusion and pain, that was what she was feeling, and nothing beneath. Who was she? Where was she? And truly, how was she?

Taking a deep breath, she sat up as best as she could, a wave of cold, hot, and hurt washing over her then vanishing. She attempted to stand, but quickly stopped, staring at the beast to see if it had moved.

It hadn't.

She managed to roll over, on hands and knees and then make it up to both feet, but then she collapsed, her muscles weak and broken. As she hit the ground she landed on her arm, and a terrible bout of pain hit her just as hard. She managed to hold the scream in but the tears still fell.

What is this... on my... what is this called... Face... What is this on my face?

Indeed, without her bijuu, a lot of the subtle changes to her body, to her personality, to her very being, they were starting to come out, though she didn't know it was missing. She didn't feel the need to be so tough all the time so she could cry. She didn't have the internal depression so eventually she could smile. She didn't know hatred so for once in her life, she could know her own innocence. This new personality was a lot, and yet it was her, the real her, the her that was hidden beneath layers and layers of despair and emotional torture. She couldn't place the feeling, but it was a feeling that she had hidden so far down she had forgotten hat it felt like. She felt so...

Vulnerable.

Still, as vulnerable as she was, there was a time when she didn't have a bijuu. She couldn't remember it very fondly in her past state, not even the slightest now, but from what she had going on in her head, from the thoughts that surfaced through the pain and fear, she was always strong, and she was never the kind of person that would shy, run, or cry. This was all the way out of character for her, but having part of her life ripped from her and dropping her in the middle of nowhere, it took a toll. A toll that she would have to force herself to live through.

I cant stay here... I wont be a victim

And so she forced herself up. Through wobbling legs, fading vision, and screaming skin, she forced herself up. One foot in front of the other, she made the effort to walk, trying to get away from the creatures and to safety as quickly and quietly as she could. She didn't know where she would go, she didn't even know where she was, but she did know that here would not be her greatest moment. As with all sneaking people, as she made her way out of the den of the beasts and but a few steps out of their range, she stepped on a branch, its snap seemingly loud enough to wake the dead.

And yet the beasts stayed asleep.

She made it from the clearing, into the woods away from the path. If she was going to get away she would have to disappear. She knew they were animals, and that they looked like the hunting kind, but if she put enough things between her and them, maybe they would just give up in hopes of an easier meal.

The light never changed, the canopy blocking all the sky, rays of light shining like beacons leading her to nowhere. She was so unfamiliar with the outside world that even if she had her memory, she could count the number of time she had left the village on one hand, and nothing about this forest would have seemed familiar to her, But she didn't have her memory, and she didn't have knowledge of anything. As she walked and walked for what seemed like an hour, the only recurring thought in her head was of the two creatures, her only feelings were pain. Pain and...

*grrrrrrglmmmblleeee*

The sound startled her, it was the loudest thing she had heard yet, louder than the birds and the bugs, louder than the leaves and the wind.

Her stomach was growling louder than the entire forest.

How was she to find food. What even was food? She knew she needed to eat, but she had no idea how or what. She had memories of eating, of sitting and putting things in her mouth, but thats where it stopped. She didn't know what it was that she was eating, and she didn't know where. All she could figure was that whatever it was, She needed to find it now.

She looked around, finding a leaf on the ground, and she shoved it in her mouth, immediatley spitting it out everywhere. Whatever that was, it wasn't food. She grabbed a tree branch and chewed it, gross, but better than the dirt covered leaf. For the next twenty minutes shee just put things in her mouth and spit them out, finding nothing that suited her taste, all the while her stomach growling louder and louder. She scouted the ground, looking for anything, remembering some sort of sweet taste that was associated with colorful things, and so she looked for those. Eventually she found a flower, white with purple streaks and a bright yellow inside. Stuffing it in her mouth it was the most pleasant thing she had tasted as of yet, and yet it did nothing for her, she needed more, something heavier, and then she saw it, racing in between the trees. A squirrel, its small body and fluffy tail catching her eye as it moved back and forth beyond her grasp. Was that what she was supposed to eat?

For a moment she thought about giving chase, but as she flexed, preparing, a wave of pain hit her like none other, and she dropped to the ground, screaming in pain. It was from that that she assumed that she would have to find things that were slow, or things that didn't move, because her body wouldn't let her do anything else. As she went back to her earlier searching, she noticed only two things, bugs and leaves, and she trusted neither. She had heer experience with leaves, they were nasty, and the bugs, they just looked nasty, so she didn't even try with those.

Eventually, after wandering for even longer, she heard birds. She had been hearing them for a while, their chirps scratching her ears, but she couldn't find what was making the noise until one landed on a nearby branch, allowing her to watch it for just a while. Eventually, the sound became plaeasing to her, and she sat and enjoyed it, all untill she was reminded of her hunger, and figured if she could catch one she could eat it. Still, she was injured, in pain and had nothing to reach them before they flew off and out of her reach. She looked on the ground for anything, a rock, a sharp stick, anything, but all she found was dirt, leaves, and thin twigs.

*GRGRGlglllrllrllglglrlrlrlrlr*

"I'm gonna die. Im so... hun..gry...."

It was then that she saw the eyes peering out from the bushes, massive, yellow, and staring straight at her.

She couldn't even turn fast enough before two giant tusks ripped through the dense brush, accompanied by a rippling mass of fur and muscle, and a snout that seemed to squeal in pure rage. Ironic that the first thing she was attacked by be a giant boar, the preferred form of the demon that she had lost, or at least that was the form that it had shown her. She knew nothing of that though, she simply knew that its presence illicited the same feeling that the two creatures she had awoken to produced. It was the urge to flee, the urge to find saftey, the urge to run.

Her legs collapsed under the strain of movement, her body screaming out in pain. Whatever had happened to her, it was deeper than physical injury. Sure she had cuts and scrapes, even gashes and bruised bones, but what she was feeling was more than physical. She felt like her nerves had been pulled through her skin, exposing them to every single feeling.

The ninja in her would have allowed her to fight through the pain, but the human in her wouldn't let her, causing her to simply roll out of the way, screaming out loud as a giant hoof came down right next to her leg. An inch more and she might have been crushed to dust. The boar ran off, into the distance, the cloud of debris it kicked up slowly getting smaller and smaller. She breathed a sigh of relief, sitting there for just a moment before attempting to get up, but when she did attempt, what she saw made her so sad.

The boar was coming back.

To her, all she could see were two amber orbs growing in size, the beasts giant eyes locked in on her own. As it grew closer they grew larger until they seemed to block out the little light that had reached down to illuminate her surroundings. The sound of thunder, the danger of lightning. Raw musk hit her nose just as the wind hit her skin and every fine hair on her body stood on end. They eyes seemed to suck her into a different world, a world where she could not move, where she could not breath, where she could not be, and then just like that, they disappeared.

A black shadows erupted from the foliage, accompanied by a breeze that freed her from the chains of fear, and just like that the entire forest was painted red, a terrible squeal again disrupting the birds that had finally resumed their normal routine. Ahead of her, the two black creatures combated the boar, claws and teeth ripping into its flesh as it almost helplessly tried to defend itself. They moved in sync, as a team, as one, keeping the creature off guard and off balance, attacking from its blinds and countering every motion it took with another attack. It was brutal to watch, and yet she was transfixed by the show, her eyes tracking them as they jumped, rolled and clawed. Quite quickly the boar's motions began to die out, a mouth clamped to its neck and claws in its spine sending it on a one way trip to the end it so casually sought to bring Osen to.

"Are those... Are they..."

One last squeal and the boar dropped, the two beast circling it just to be sure.

She just sat there, bewildered as the two beasts circled the raggedly breathing creature before both simply bit into it. They didn't seem to be eating it, but they were certainly doing something. The way their bodies looked, the way they undulated and shifted, it was like they were sucking the blood out of the creature, and yet, after a moment, they had finished, and the creature was still bleeding profusely.

As all three sets of eyes met each other, the creatures ran up to her, and she thought it was the end. She even began to think about praying to whatever god people prayed to, but then the first one simply rubbed against her, nudging her with it snout. The second came around her side, rubbing its body against her side, almost knocking her over, but seemingly unintentional. Taking a chance, she reached her hand out, and the one in front of her simply dipped its head down, letting her pet it.

Were they... Protecting me?

As they connected, she felt a warm sensation come over her body, not like being on fire, but instead like being near one on a cold night. It was comforting to say the least, and the pain her body had been feeling slowly subsided, just a bit but a bit was more than none. If she had her memory she might have been able to realize that she was having chakra transferred to her, but all she really knew was that it felt good. The first good feeling she had since she woke up.

*grrglrrllalalrlgrl*

She had completely forgotten about her stomach in her fear, but now it was back with a vengeance, trying to rip itself from her body to forage for itself. Or at least thats what it seemed like. Looking over, she looked at the boar, looked at the creatures, and looked back at the boar.

Walking over to the boar, she bit into it, causing it to kick and squeal a bit. she had forgotten that it was still alive, but she didn't care, she was so hungry. Getting a bit of hair in her mouth, and a quite a bit of blood, she spat it out, not liking the taste or the texture, but Underneath that, she tasted the actual meat, which wasn't bad. Taking a second bite from the same spot she pulled meat out, squeezing the blood from it for a moment before biting into it. As her saliva hit it it began to cook on the most minuscule of levels, turning from pink to white and giving off a slight hiss of steam. Though her body was broken and her chakra network was shot, her clans natural abilities were still there, and the acid that her body produced on its own was taking effect. Because her body was so weak right now, so was her acid, but it served its purpose well. She couldn't control it because she didn't even know it was happening, so anything stronger would probably been worse off.

"Time to eat"

As she sat and ate her strength slowly returned to her. She could feel the odd sensation that had been ravaging her skin dull away, and her head, which had been hurting beyond measure, stopped throbbing as well. The growling subsided, and before even a side of the Boar was gone she felt full, a sensation she was actually quite unfamiliar with, especially for the small amount of food she had. Oddly enough, the two creatures didn't even attempt to eat, they simply laid and watched her, and after a while she got up and walked over to one, placing her hand against its rough but oddly soft fur. As her hand stroked it she asked aloud,

"You sure are some strange creatures... Where did you come from... Why are you protecting me... What exactly are you...."

Taking her hand off, she noticed the heavy amount of blood staining her palm. Old blood, new blood, just lots and lots of blood.

"You guys need a.... bath... And me too... Lets find us a little river or something..."

As she traversed the forest she tried to get some sense of things. She still had no idea how she had got there, or why. All she could remember was people fighting, fighting other people. It all looked the same to her, there was no one side that she seemed to belong to, she wasn't even sure if she belonged to either. In some memories she did see herself though, and she saw the same people that were fighting looking at her. Were they her friends? Her family? Did she even know them? She doubted it, because the way they were looking at her, even with her lack of memory she could tell that they didn't care about her. They looked at her like she was a table or a chair, an object, and those that did look at her like she was something alive, they had a look of fear and disgust, the look she had given the boar and the bugs. Maybe, even if she did belong there, she was better off being without them.

In her past life, she had tried so many times to fit in, to be a part of everthing and everyone, only to be shunned and excluded. She had decided to just get away from them, but was brought back by an apparent kindness that ended up being only duty in disguise. Now she was free of them and that, and though she had no memory of the torture and torment, she knew that they were not the ones for her.

The two wargs could sense the conflict in her and moved closer, like concerned dogs. She really wanted to know where they had come from, but nothing had come to her. She had never heard of them, had no memory of them, and even if she had her memory the outcome would be the same. They had come from somewhere, creatures with an instinct to protect her, and eyes that showed her the look that so many people hadn't.

They were there for her.

Soon, she heard the sounds of rushing water, and could smell the fresh cool scent that accompanied it. Beyond a line of trees a small stream was flowing, surrounded by grass and a few plants and animals that she hadn't seen yet.

"Welp, here's a stream..."

And just like that, the two beasts dove in, a thick layer of blood and muck rising from their fur. It was like they had never bathed before, ever.

Downstream, a school of fish floated to the surface.

She wanted to bathe herself too, but the water was just too dirty, she couldn't even bring herself to get in there. Still, she needed to, and so she walked a bit upstream, away from the backwash, and removed what tattered bits of clothing she had on. She honestly hadn't noticed the condition of her clothing, the rips, stains, blood, dirt, and stuff she couldn't even identify. It was atrocious, and as the shirt came over her head she felt relieved, more free. The air felt good on her skin though the movement hurt a bit. Looking down at her arms, she could see dozens of scrapes and bruises, and even something she couldn't describe, raw patches of skin that were scabbing over. It looked bad, but she could see others like it, things that had healed over time, and so she knew that eventually she would be fine.

Kneeling at the waters edge, she washed her face, splashing water in her hair, which oddly enough had gotten to be shoulder length. She wouldn't remember that it was much shorter than that when she had arrived in the forest, but she enjoyed the feeling of it, running her hair through the strands. She looked into the reflection of her in the water, into her own eyes, the same green eyes she had always looked into and they were unfamiliar. She saw her red hair, the same red hair she always had and it was unfamiliar. She even looked at her face, the same face she always had and it was unfamiliar. Everything was the same... And yet it was like looking at a new person, somone she didn't know, and convincing herself that that was who she was.

But who was she?

Shaking her head, she stood up and slid off her shorts. They seemed much more intact than her shirt, though of course there were tears and blood on them as well. She waded into the water, its cool movement refreshing, and the rocks at the bottom were round and not jagged, allowing her to simply relax as she knelt down, submerging herself in it. Looking closely, she could see a few fish floating around her, small charges of electricity lighting them up like little bulbs, quickly flitting away from her. A small bit of steam started to rise around her but she didn't really notice, nor did she notice the fish that swam too close flipping over and floating to the surface. All she really noticed was the feeling of refreshment, and the sound of splashing water.

Looking back downstream, she saw the two beast creatures playing in the water, they were like little kids. One was sort of calm, very reserved, like the earth. The other was more energetic, more free like the breeze.

Was that what they were? The spirits of sky and earth come to protect her?

The cool bath was refreshing, she would definitely admit to that, but there was nothing like the comfort of a warm shower, and even though she could not remember it, her body could, small shivers eventually overtaking her and causing her to get out. Her wargs did the same and shook themselves, sending water flying everywhere. She smiled and did the same, though not as effective as them. Wringing her hair free of the excess water, she shook it again and walked over to them, examining them from head to toe. As she rubbed the calm one she nodded, noting how clean his fur had come out. It seemed to only be a surface layer of dirt, though clearly it was a lot of it. She petted him gently, marveling at his existence before whispering in his ear.

"You remind me of the earth... calm and gentle at times, fierce and unrelenting at others, Kishar. How does that sound?"

She didn't know where the word had come from, bits and pieces of memory lingering about. Names of things sometimes came to her, sometimes they didn't. Her memory was indeed like a fog, in some places thicker, in some places not.

The warg let out a soft growl, seemingly accepting his name, and then resumed his normal behavior, mulling about for a bit before laying down. She then walked over to the second warg, the one that was focused on something in the water, clawing at it somewhat gently, or at least as gently as something its size could do.

"And you, you're like the wind or the sky. Free and untamed. Anshar."

His clawing of the water stopped for a moment, a simple growl and shake of his fur, and then what seemed like a smile appeared on his face.

The two wargs accepted their names, the gods of sky and earth, and she, she was that in the middle, but what would she be called. What was her name?

Now, she wanted to put her clothes back on, but as she looked at them they were just raggedy. She had dried off a bit though so she decided to just put the shorts back on, remembering the two men she had seen, and remembering their clothing which was more or less intact. Survival training was not one of her strongest points, but like all people, she had the instinct to find food, shelter, and clothing. That being the main thing, she decided to back track. She was sure that along with the clothes, the men would probably have other things that she could use.

The walk back was a little harder than she had thought, she hadn't planned on ever going back so she never made a trail. Only by following the general look of things, the spacing of trees, familiar plants, things like that, did she stumble back to it, but indeed she did. The clearing was actually quite large, a fallen tree to sit on and a big open area with a ring of stones in the middle. The men had made a camp, or at least had started too, how unlucky they didn't get to use it. Seeing the camp area, the idea of fire finally came to her, she had a memory of sitting around one, just like that, its red orange blaze illuminating some random night.

"Okay, fire... fire needs fuel...I need wood... leaves... stuff that burns... And I need heat or sparks.... What can I use?"

She was thinking out loud, but the two wargs perked their ears up before one ran off, finding a fallen tree and breaking it apart with its paws. The commotion drew her attention, and she smiled.

This things are definitely smart... But where did they come from....

She hook her head, deciding it was better not to ask for now, and simply concentrate on getting the fire started. She remembered someone saying something about using friction to start a fire, but how would she do that? She knew rubbing stuff together produced heat, but would it be enough? Getting up she walked over to the downed tree, trying to organize the debris into some sort of pile, picking out what looked flammable and grouping it together. Finding two decent looking sticks, she began to rub them together. She rubbed and rubbed and rubbed, and even though they seemed to get hot all that happened were that her arms started hurting.

Sitting in frustration, one of her wargs began to scratch at a rock, the scraping sound irritating her. it was in it though, that she heard the clash of kunai, and in that clash, the inevitable spark. Looking over at the half of a man, she decided to check him now. Pulling off his bloddied shirt, she found it to be salvageable after a good washing so she put it in a pile. She did this with the other man, turning out their pockets and pouches until she had a good pile of stuff she could use. One man had a few knives and a sword on him. The other seemed to have knives as well, but nothing else very useful. Strapping the sword to her back, she checked him for anything else. There was a little spending money and a pack of cigarettes, but no lighter. The knives would just have to do.

Turning back, she sat there, in her pile of wood, and tried to break it into small pieces, enough to get a base for a fire. The process was time consuming to say the least, but finally she was done, and with a few good scrapes, she got some sparks off the kunai, and after about 10 minutes, she got a good sized fire going.

It was in this fire that she saw her future. Whatever she had gone through, and whatever had gotten her to where she was now, just like the wood of the fire, it was no more, sacrificed towards a new light. She decided that she would go and explore the world, she would try and live for her and for what she could, and she would take the two wargs with her. If she found her lost memories along the way then fine, but if she didn't then she would create new ones, ones without pain or hardship brought on by other peoples judgements of her.

And so, on the next morning, the trio began their journey through the Land of Lightning, specifically the Chiroptera Forest. Legends as long as the very history of the country surrounded its depths, stories of creatures that roamed the night and beasts as tall as buildings. For her though, she would live these stories herself, finding both truth and lies in them, but never knowing one way or the other to tell anyone. The path through the forest was filled with dangerous animals, carnivorous plants, and treacherous landscapes that the group almost met their end on at more than one occasion. Eventually, her pain subsided, and her strength began to return, but while it did, slowly but surely, Anshar and Kishar protected her, the gods of sky and earth seemingly watching over her through them. They survived off of any animals they found to eat, her beasts energy ebbing and flowing around each kill, though they never seemed to actually eat.Through teamwork they were able to persevere and in the span of a few days they reached the end of the forest.

"Look, What a beautiful sight..."

Her idea of beauty was very different from most peoples, as she had reached the end of the Chiroptera forest, and entered what was tenderly known as the Thunder Plains.
