It was an open expanse of land, barren and dry from years and years of constant lightning strikes. Even now the bolts illuminated the perpetual cloudy sky, though for one it was not raining there. Many say the area was the result of a powerful ninja technique causing the never ending storm, and some say it had always been that way, but all agreed that it was a dangerous place to travel. Even with the recent addition of Lightning rod towers, which took the brunt of the storm, it was still dangerous, and many people had died traveling across it. Osen didn't seem to fear it though, and neither did her wargs. They decided to travel straight through it, to see what was on the other side.

Climbing onto Anshar's back, she held on tightly as they raced across the plains, passing creatures she couldn't wholly identify, their shapes jutting out in the flashes of light. At one point even a boulder seemed to move towards her, eyes jutting out of the creases, but then, in the next flash it was normal, an illusion of the strobe. Within half an hour though, thay had ttravered aproxamatley half of it and came on something she hadn't seen before, something out of her past.

A building.

The Hunters Inn, a large stone building surrounded by towers that jutted up into the sky like spears, drawing in the electricity and using it for power, or so it seemed. Hopping off of An she simply told him to sit as she walked in. She wasn't surprised when he did exactly that, they really were loyal and smart.

"Hello and Welcome to the hunters inn, how may I help you!", greeted a man dressed in a fancy red outfit, his blonde hair sticking out to her more obnoxiously than her red. As he looked up from behind the desk, his face dropped, noticing the revealing nature of the rips in her clothing, as well as seemingly being disgusted by the overall look of her.

"Wha...What is this place...."

"This is The Hunters Inn of course. The only rest stop in the Thunder Plains between the Chiropetra Forest and the rest of the lightning country..."

"Thunder Plains.... Lightning country... Chiropetra.... I dont know what any of that is....."

"No, You must be a wanderer then... Well, pleasure to have you anyhow... The rooms are 100 Ryo a night...."

"Ryo..."

"Come now...You have to know what that means, we're you born under a rock or something?"

She shrugged, a saddened look in her eyes. The man saw it and felt instantly sorry. He could tell by her look and bruises that she was not just dirty, but that she had gone through something. He wasn't an unkind person, he just didn't like some of the people that looked like her who had come by. Seeing the error of the ways he apologized before asking her if she had any money. She reached into her pocket, dropping a few coins onto the table from it, courtesy of the dead men in the forest, and requested a room and shelter for two pets. It was more than enough and he gave her the change, trying to show her what was what at the same time, after which he handed her the key, and then escorted her outside, prepared to see a horse or a dog.

"Wha...wha...What are those......"

Osen could do nothing more than smile as she simply said, "I have no idea... but they're mine".

And so she was introduced to the shelter, the man trying to put himself back together but cautiously glancing at the two beasts every few seconds. The shelter for them was large, and rightfully so. It seemed to be what was used for horses and the like, but this one was much clearer, less hay and whatnot. In fact, it was pretty much just a large room with a big pillowy thing in the center, and large buckets, probably one for food and one for water.

"So, uhhh... what do they eat, because food does come with your purchase..."

Her shoulder shrug told it all, she had no clue. She had seen them feed, but never seen them actually eat, but they seemed to revive off of living things, so she just assumed it was that.

"I really don't know, but whatever it is, it has to be live. You have anything live?"

The man shook his head, mumbling something about the guests.

She petted each of them, deciding they would be okay overnight, and then closed the door, locking it behind her. They would be fine.

The man walked her back inside, still eyeing behind him cautiously. In through the lobby they walked, a group of men looking up briefly to notice the newcomer. She glanced back at them for only a split second, and then went back to following. The man showed her to the hallway with rooms, and pointed to the directions hers would be.

"Room 216, there are stairs at the end, and when you come up your room will be on the right."

Now at the moment she couldn't read, and didn't know left from right, but she still had her smarts, and the key had numbers on it and so did the rooms. As long as she could find the ones that matched then she would be fine.

"There is also a gift shop down here, as well as a restaurant. There's also a guy that normally roams around here that sells things for... your kind."

He had assumed she was a shinobi by the knives she carried and the sword on her back, but he wasn't all the way sure since she looked so young and helpless. Still, he had seen his fair share of shinobi, and knew that age was not a guideline for either profession or proficiency. He hoped she didn't take offense, but if she did, he could definitely explain himself. He smiled at her, told her when checkout was, and returned to his desk.

She on the other hand went straight to her room, dropping her stuff doown and lying directly on the bed. It felt good and comfortable, like how the clouds looked, but she felt dirty and so she got up, looking for anything to change into. In her small bag she had the tattered clothes from the other men, washed in a river but still not clean. The man had said something about clothes and food though, and so she figured that would be a good idea. She walked back out into the hallway and down to the gift shop. There she found almost everything she needed, new pants and shirts, and the woman at the counter helped her to get other things, at first out of a desire to make more money, but seeing her condition, just to help Osen out. Toothbrush, toothpaste, all of that, she got everything she would need for her stay and luckily, she had more money than she knew, and had plenty left over.

With bags in her hand she walked back to her room, fumbling with the key for a second before finally getting the door open and dropping her newly acquired stuff. Now, she stripped down, dropping her clothes in the garbage, and hopped into the shower, the hot water being all she ever wanted. She used the soap, she washed her hair, she did everything she could do in the shower, and she enjoyed every last minute of it. As she got out, and wrapped herself in a towel, she lotioned up and then just laid out on the bed. On the wall, in fornt of her there was a square frame. it had buttons on it, and one that clearly said power.

Curious as she was, she pressed it, and the box lit up, moving pictures of a man appeared, and she was shocked. She had never seen a TV before, the ninja villages were so behind the rest of the world when it came to technology. She managed to figure out the channel button and the volume, and so she watched it for a while, amazed at the things she saw. Hours passed and eventually she fell asleep, the light still illuminating the now dark room.

Click.

Everything felt so good, she was just so comfortable. She never even noticed the door unlatching, or the man creeping in, deviant smile on his face. He wore a black jacket, a simple red shirt, and black pants, and yet he looked all the sinister. The TV flashed as did the lightning, keeping her eyes from noticing the changes in the room, though of course she was well beyond a light sleep. As he thought about what he would do to the pretty girl from the lobby, he chuckled to himself. He stepped past the bathroom, past the sink, and into the main part of the room, first eyeing the beautiful naked body laid out on top of the sheets. His blood pumped everywhere, a comical nosebleed almost taking place, but just like that his blood simply stopped. Pitch black eyes stared him down, just behind the girls body, a giant snout and muzzle simply opening up to reveal row after row of teeth. He could feel the warm sensation of fear running down his leg, pooling in his shoes as he tried to force himself to step backwards, but he was frozen, stuck in place by fear.

"Move... Mooove....Moooooooove"

And with all of his will he put one foot behind the other and stepped back.

Bump.

Whatever he had hit it was soft. Not squishy soft, but living soft. His ears perked up and could hear the sounds of breathing. He could feel the air on his leg. His eyes shut hard as they could as he just kept going back, back to the door, out of the door, and down the hallway, leaving a small trail in his wake. The two wargs seemed to laugh to themselves as they managed to squeeze themselves around the room, keeping everything intact as one laid on the floor and the other made his way out of the open window. How it had gotten open, no one would ever know. How they had gotten out of the shelter, no one would ever know, but they were out.

As the first rays of sun, or rather, lightened clouds, crept through her window, Osen's eyes flicked open. Barely awake, she stepped off the bed towards the shower, stepping in a wet patch of carpet. Her eyes opened a little wider, and as they did the sight of one of her wargs, as well as the smell of urine hit her senses.

"Oh God, eww.... what the.. on the carpet..... How did you get in here...."

Whichever one it was on the floor, her voice startled it awake, and it knocked over a large table, knocking everything onto the ground. In her fit of early morning confusion and disgust, she grabbed the nearest piece of paper, rolling it into a tube, and whacked the warg square on the nose. For a moment they both stood there shocked that she had done it, but only she continued on after that.

"No! We do not do that on the floor... No!"

After a few minutes of scrubbing, some showering, and some petting Osen was ready to go out of the room. She wasn't sure how she was going to deal with getting her warg out of the room and down the hallway, but he solved that by simply jumping out the window and running out, climbing a wall and entering the shelter through a new looking hole in the roof.

As she made her way to the restaurant, a man sat there, drinking his coffee, hands shaking fiercely. He looked up at her and instantly dropped his cup, to which she laughed and smiled, innocent and oblivious to the happenings of the night. She sat near him, not intentionally, but for lack of seats, and ordered herself some breakfast. The tension seemed to get to be to much for him though, and he quickly got up and just left, leaving a large sum of money on the table. The waiter came and grabbed his plate, not noticing the spilled cup, and then proceeded to count the bill, leaving the leftover on the table for when the man came back.

Osen looked once, looked twice, and slipped half of the money into her pocket. She wasn't sure how much it was, but she knew that this stuff, this money, it was the key to getting things, and without it she might as well have still been in the woods. Her food came, and she ate it, and the man hadn't come back, and so she took the rest, leaving her bill on the table and walking out quite quickly. Again she passed the man, who was sitting alone in a chair. He had obviously forgotten about the money. Something was on his mind, she could tell that much by the frazzled look on his face and the furrowing of his brow.

Stepping out into the cloudy outdoors with her bags, she went to her shelter, unlocking it and looking at her two wargs. They were huddled around something, but she rathered not know, and so simply called out "Anshar", hoping they remembered which one of them was which. Indeed one came over, and reaching into her bag, she pulled out a white belt. It was too big for her, but it fit around the warg's neck perfectly. Kishar looked up, eyes seemingly sad, as though he had been forgotten, but when she pulled out a green one, he bounded over, putting his head down to be collared. She rubbed them both behind the ears and walked them out, telling them to sit again. As she opened the door, the man from the chair was walking out, took one glance at them, and ran off back into the building.

Osen shrugged, dropped her key, and got ready to set off. As she reached the gate of the inn, a fancy dressed man with a large pack stood at the entrance.

"Hello, My name is Benji the traveling salesman. I've traveled far and wide and have items from all over the world. Can I interest you in anything?"

He opened his pack, laying out all sorts of items in front of her, from swords and knives to tools, clothing and armor, and medicine. She had him explain what everything was to her, and though he thought she was just being scrutious, she really had noidea what they were, but if he was selling them than someone wanted them or they had a use. Byt hte end of it she ended up with a lighter, some ninja tools, a backpack, medical supplies, and a change of clothes, and the one final thing she never knew she needed.

A map.

And so her supply pack was complete, and as she mounted Kishar, they ran south, further away from everything that she had left behind, and on to a new world.

She was finally free.

Namakura Village.


"Kuchiyose no Jutsu!"

A tremendous roar echoed across a dark and undefined expanse. Trees shook and boulders crumbled, the very ocean that provided the backdrop trembled in fear as the moon was blotted out by a large figure, unidentifiable but unmistakable. A lone shinobi stood against the creature, sword reflecting the slivers of unblocked light and hair as red as fire waving in the quake of the tremendous sound. From its mouth a black ball formed, somehow illuminating the battlefield, revealing the scattered corpses of hundreds. The lone shinobi stood their ground, the orb growing in size and apparent power before being blasted forward.

The very ground underneath the blast was blown away, trees pushed back and everything obliterated beneath. Slowly it approached the warrior, all of time warping around it, and then, just as it would hit, she woke up.

*Gasp*

Her body was in a cold sweat, the sheets of the bed were tossed and turned, and her emerald eyes were wide open, staring at the blank ceiling above. She laid there for a moment, un-moving, un-speaking, just reflecting on what she had seen, and then, suddenly, she got up, running as fast as she could, hopping over a large black Bear-dog before bursting into the bathroom, dropping draws, and releasing the liquid fear that had crept to the edge of the doorway.

Flushing once and washing her hands, she stared at the mirror, pulling the bags under her eyes and shaking her head at herself.

"This is four nights in a row with the same dream... What does it mean....."

Stepping back into the room, Osen was greeted by both her wargs staring at her, their eyes unusually big and concerned looking. Somehow they all fit in the somewhat large shack she was occupying, but it was probably because its original residents had decided it safer to stay in their own guest shack. She petted them both, their own bodies making her feel better. She still wasn't sure what had happened to her, but ever since she had woken up in the forest with them, her life had been changed. The initial pain she had been having had subsided to nothingness, and she had been feeling like her own strength had been returning, though she hadn't had a real need to use it, the two beasts protecting her when she couldn't' protect herself, and sometimes even when she could.

Staring out of the lone window, she watched the rain hit the fields, causing a curtain-like effect over the moon. When she looked up at it the image form her dream flashed, giving her a dark shudder and causing her to turn away. She climbed back into bed, slipping under the covers again and having one of her creatures plopping its head next to her, where she petted its head until she drifted off into sleep.

Fire, lots and lots of fire, and buildings reduced to rubble. It was the middle of the day and the sound of metal on metal clearly rang out. She was there, staring at the nothingness, trying to find the sound. She searched high and low, but every time she turned a corner it got further away.

Behind her.

The sound came from nowhere and everywhere, the edge of a building collapsed and just as she looked a flash of red and black flew away into the distance. As she tried to chase after it she suddenly found the ground collapsing from under her. The whole earth opened up, and as she fell, she saw sharp white teeth closing in around her, then nothing but darkness.

Darkness and laughter.

Again she woke up, but without all the theatrics. The sun was up now, a light rain misting the area. The sun was shining, casting a beam off light in through the window and onto the floor. The company she kept were up, roaming around the room, and she opened the main door, letting them outside. As they bounded out like puppies, the townsfolk quickly scurried inside. They were safe as long as they didn't get on her wrong side, but they would not believe that and took every precaution. She went to the kitchen herself, pulling out the makings of a breakfast, rice and a few slivers of meat, and warmed them up over a warm fire before sitting at a nice wooden table. It felt like home, but she didn't really know what that was, She just felt safe, comforted, she felt like she belonged, even though she knew she didn't. This was a home, just not hers. she would have to find her own.

As she cleaned up she cleared the table and placed a large map on the center of the table. On it were several cities, places she never had seen or heard of. It was a commoners map, one of the towns and cities that regular people lived in, a directory for all things regular. It was her guide to the life she wanted, and other than her two pet wargs, it was the life that would have no traces of her past.

Rolling the map back up, she grabbed her few belongings and left a small sum of money on the table, something she had found to be a sort of custom where she went. Exiting the room, she made a shrill whistle and a moment later the two black behemoths came bounding from across a nearby field. Mounting one with a white collar, she pointed over towards the ever expanding distance.

"I think we'll go that way. There was a town with a big lake on it. It seems really nice."

Osen's journey was just as uneventful, the ride up across the countryside having little to offer her in terms of action, but much to offer in aesthetics. The rolling hills of grass, the few animals that seemed to inhabit the plains, the bright fall colors of the forests that lined the distance, everything was so beautiful. Even when she approached the city, buildings jutting into the sky like mountains, she could see the beauty in it.

It seemed old, weathered techniques of building that kept things rustic even though the touches of modern technology seemed to decorate everything. Small lights flickered in the afternoon light, plumes of steam rose into the sky like a bonfire's smoke, the sounds of music and merriment, business and pleasure, they all melded into something that reminded her of her old home. Most of all, she could see the sparkling waters of the lake that the town was built around. As her and her wargs got closer, she could make out the actual shape of the city, a crescent, and the lake was at the center, facing off to the west. It was crystal clear, or at least it looked it, and there were quite a few colorful boats gliding on its surface, not a care in the world.

"Wow... Amazing.."

The sight of the two bounding wargs startled a few people, but oddly enough, the majority seemed unfazed, only really moving out of the way. At first it was quite surprising, but as she went through the city she saw why. On the very first street she turned on, she almost ran straight into a carriage, not pulled by horses or by an engine, but pulled by some sort of giant lizard. Looking around, there were all manners of beast scattered through the streets, and they seemed to be ridden by the most regular of people.

"Whoa..."

Slowing Kishar to a walk, she tried to examine as much of the skyline as she could, buildings and signs blocking out the sky like towers. She couldn't even process what she was seeing half of the time as she went, the city seemingly thriving off of some energy she couldn't see. From her time at the Hunters Inn, and a few other places, she had learned that it was electricity, but the sheer scale of it was well beyond her. Her eyes stayed wide open, taking everything in, until she came across two signs. One pointed her to the lake, the highlight of her trip, and the other towards some sort of stadium. There seemed to be a lot of people heading that way, and initially she moseyed on that way, until she picked out a big red and white sign that said "No Pets allowed".

Dropping her head, she turned around and headed to the lake. The air was a little cool, but it was nice, the rain had given way to clear skies and sunshine. The closer she got to the lake, the more the buildings became spaced out, the people looked less uptight, and the smell of food began drifting. She entered a main street, again almost walking into something, this time a normal cart, but as it passed, passengers cursing, she eyed the source of her noses tantalization.

"SHAWARMA!"

She hopped off her mount and raced over to the stand, though race was an overstatement as it was only two or three steps. Eyeing the menu quickly, she asked for whatever it was that smelled so good,the man in the dirty apron and hat laughing merrily as he pointed at a few selections. She ended up getting a simple wrap, Lamb, tomatoes, lettuce, sauce. The price was a pretty cheap and it was good, a much better step from the leaves, twigs and raw meat she had eaten before. She began to scarf it down before she looked up to her wargs, realizing that they hadn't fed in quite some time. Not since they left, But where could they feed here in a city?

"Damn, I still haven't really figured out what you guys eat yet. I see you killing animals, but you never actually eat them...."

Taking another bite, she leaned against one of them, closed her eyes, and thought about it for just a moment before she heard a deep guttural growling. Opening her eyes, she saw a man, a regular, unremarkable man, being backed against a pole by her other pet, his eyes wide and fearful.

"Down boy.... Down."

Anshar growled again before backing off just a bit, keeping his eyes trained on the man.

"You can control a warg?", he said, voice still trembling as he tried to retain some amount of dignity and courage.

"A What?"

"A...Warg...."

The mans eyes shifted to the beasts as they growled him down, recognizing his stench from years past and gone. Osen patted them and they calmed, and she began to ask him questions, trying to get as much from him as she could.

"How do you know this? Have you seen them before?"

"Yes, a long time ago, when I was younger I saw them rip apart a group of people I had been living with. There was a man who walked into our camp, and he asked some of the guys a couple of questions, and then before we knew it, two of those things sort of peeled off of him and were ripping through everyone. Swords couldn't cut them, even a lucky explosion only seemed to slow them down, and they quickly just decimated everyone. I managed to escape, but I was the only one. I ran and ran and ran, as far as I could, and when I couldn't run any more I kept going. I never thought i'd see one again."

The terror in his eyes was obvious as he looked at them. He could remember every detail about the encounter, even though it had happened almost 20 years prior, and halfway across the world.

"You said they... came off of somebody? Like peeled off him?"

"Yeah, it was this crazy looking white haired guy, they just kind of appeared. Some sort of magic..."

"Magic..."

He seemed to not know about ninjutsu either, the way he called it magic, but for all it was worth, thats what it was.

She continued to think for only a moment before realizing her wargs were creeping up on the man again. She took a big bite out of her wrap and then walked over to him.

"It seems like my... wargs... have something against you... I cant see what you have done, or even act like I know what happened in the past, but the fact that they recognize you, it means that they're probably the same ones from before. If that's the case, then you are the only person that has seen the guy who really owns them. That means you might be able to help me."

Something was compelling her to find their owners, and if he could help... well then he was indeed valuable.

"Tell me as much about this guy as you can, clothes, weapons, accent, anything."

The man spilled as much as he could, telling her about the odd style of clothes he had for the region, and how his voice sounded like it was from out of the country, but he couldn't tell exactly where. He actually wasn't that much of a help when all was said and done, but he gave her more than she knew before and so when he was done, she let him run off, then petted both wargs at the same time, keeping them from going after him.

"So was he right? Do you belong to this white haired guy?"

And so she was marked with a new destination, to find the man that had created these creatures that had saved her life. She wondered fiercely why anyone would do something like that, save someone that they didn’t know, her least of all. In her past life she had always been the ass end of everyones worries, her life a simple needed existence, and then when she wasn’t needed she was simply discarded, left to fend for herself against a village that despised and feared her, and a country that had no use for her. She had tried her hand at the friendship thing, only to have it thrown back in her face, to be forgotten over and over and over again. She had tried the shinobi life, only to be abandoned by every team and teacher she had come across. She had even tried the normal civilian life, only to earn the distrust of her very family, her aunt and uncle simply leaving her alone, and her clan severing all ties with her.

Why then would anyone care about her well-being, who was there to even notice if she had gone missing? Was anybody searching for her? Did they know she was alive? Was there even anyone to care?

Only some of those questions translated to her current state, but they all offered the same result, find the guy who had taken the time to care.

It seemed her Wargs could feel her mood change, and so they came to her, returning the nurturing that she had given them. They were heaven sent if anything; creatures that she could see cared for her. Maybe that’s why she was drawn to them, and in extension the man that had made them. After all, if he made them then their personality would have had to be made that way. Was he a person that cared for those that were forgotten? Was he the one that she could finally call someone that cared about her? Was he?

Taking a final large bite of her wrap, she again began to walk, this time deciding to examine the lake. Its pristine waters reflected the now emerged sun, gulls floating above the bay. How nice it was here, a place where nobody knew her, and nobody would judge her for who she was or what was in her.

Only time would tell.
