Falling Inside the Black (Arzy)

The many towns and cities tucked in the crevices of the world, uncontrolled by any formal power. Some are friendly. Others, not so much.

"Because I don't need them," he'd reply lazily. "Not against you. Not anymore."

Grinning wickedly, tongue sliding along razor sharp teeth, he'd allow himself a moment to prepare; lightning energy in his left hand, wind in the right, inhale and exhale seeing them drawn into his body, merging together at the core of his being, a faint aura forming around his flesh as the boosting technique took hold. Another breath, and a dark, malignant energy would begin to bleed through his pores, not taking form, as his armor tended to do, but rising into the air in smoke-like wisps, darklight almost literally overflowing from his physical form. A low laugh as warning, and he'd strike, the barrier at his feet shattering under the sudden explosion of movement and force, the black dragon sent roaring towards his opponent, scythe-like claws slashing, grasping, another mass of dark energy spiraling at the ready in his offhand.

The orb of wind she stood on swerved to the side, a wave of chakra and a bit of wind manipulation guiding her safely out of reach, sheathing her katanas to form rapid handsigns, scales of chakra covering her body, fingernails sharpening into claws, and wings and tail of pure chakra sprouting from her back. She leapt off the wind-orb then to fly more freely, tail swishing as the orb unfurled, spreading her chakra throughout the breeze as she drew her katanas once more, darting towards her enemy with her blades once again superheated by lightning and fire and sharpened by wind.

And with the shift of the wind, if Otoha didn't avoid it, tiny blades of wind would shred his eyes and the delicate tissues inside his throat, nose, and ears just as she aimed to create a deep gash in his left side.

"The reason you won't win," he'd offer almost conversationally as she approached, careless of the tiny blades rushing in his direction, "is because I've seen what you can do."

Careless, casual breathing, blades tearing away at the sensitive skin within throat and nose but harmlessly scattering away from the thin membranes of darklight covering his eyes while he focuses in on her approach, teeth drawn back in a cruel smile. "But you know nothing about me," he'd rasp out, blood spitting past his sharpened teeth with the words, wrecked and ruined throat already healing. She'd come for her attack, and he'd meet her head on, scales hardening, muscles tensing, body automatically preparing itself to recieve her blade, to slow it, to stop it, claws of his main hand finding her wrist even as she'd cut into his flesh, scales extending from said claws, wrapping around the limb and binding it tight.

Smiling, always smiling, he'd lash out with his off hand, eyes not showing a single glimmer of pain as he'd drive the abyssal sphere towards her chest.

She couldn't escape.

Raika's eyes dulled into resignation and she sighed.

She wouldn't be saving anyone this time. Not even really protecting anyone.

Just dying, alone and useless.

If she'd known things would end up like this, perhaps it would have been better to stay dead the first time.

But then Fei wouldn't have been able to smile like that. Or Omoi. And who would have helped Ryuuchi?

Crimson eyes and a bright smile filled her thoughts... before the smile vanished, and she remembered the last time she remembered seeing his gaze.

Otoha's attack made contact, ripping through flesh, and her eyes closed as she allowed the pain to bring her into darkness.

Sorry, love.




An invisible force jerked the silver-haired woman back before too much damage could occur, and the sennin vanished to reappear in Omoi's grasp far below on the ground, only to be tossed casually into a dark portal beside her before it vanished.

In the same instant, a thick tendril of sapphire Ryuujinscale sprouting from the ground appeared in a spiral around Otoha before abruptly tightening around him, dragging him from the air to slam him down through the roof of one of the burning houses in the small village; she'd already phased all the villagers away to safety during her time observing Raika's fight, carefully hiding herself from detection.

The tendril rose back into the air, bringing its victim with it as she snarled, sapphire eyes filled with pure rage as it slammed back down into first one, then another house, and another, and another....

She could fix any physical damage that whatever was healing him couldn't.

So she had no reason to hold back, to hesitate, to do anything but attack and attack and attack until she could safely capture him and keep him from hurting anyone else, never letting up for a moment to allow him to regain his bearings.

"Omoi?"

A surprised tone, not the smooth yet somehow harsh voice that he'd been using while speaking to Raika. A moment of hesitation, or rather, confusion; when his senses picked up her presence, when his eyes took in her form, he would pause, unresponsive as the tendril of Ryuujinscale wrapped around his limbs. A confused glance towards the ground in the fleeting moment he had left, eyes - no longer the abyssal black - showing complete and utter disbelief at the situation, that she'd attack him, and a moment later, concern as he took in the rage in her expression.

The blows would do little at first, save for preventing the wound in his side from closing, and after a few more hits, tearing it wider, shockingly red blood splattering across the stones. Soon, his scales would shatter, the will that held them together too battered to keep focus, and in the following blow, his body would break as well, limbs cracking and snapping under the repeated attacks.

He was breaking too quickly.

It wasn't supposed to be the easy. At all. With the regeneration speed she'd witnessed, with the strength of his scales, it should take far longer to break him down, to beat the Kuroryu's control over Otoha's body and chakra. She'd seen him take the sensitive inner tissues of his throat and nose being torn to shreds without flinching.

So what the hell was going on?

And his voice earlier, the way it sounded, the way his scent shifted--she'd ignored it, thinking the Kuroryu was trying to trick her again, like he had before.

But....

The splattering of his blood, the scent of it, without him fighting back....

Suddenly he was lifted into the air and held there, ferocious sapphire eyes staring up at him for an instant before she formed handsigns, opening a portal and chucking him through it, following after him shortly after.

It had to be a trick... right?
