A Decima summons Eldritch Ira to the Naruto-verse
« Previous Post
Permalink

She found the old tome behind a new wall in the family shrine. It'd been bricked in. Hidden

Of course Hisame can hardly resist such a delightful temptation.

She skims through the book, pauses, then reads more thoroughly, a grin growing on her face.

Maybe it's nonsense. Sacrifices and blood and dark chants all for show.

But it was hidden for a reason. And maybe it's something more.

Maybe her way out of this damn Hidden Village.

Decima is good at stealth, and good at killing, no matter how Konoha keeps trying to shackle her. Finding an 'innocent' no one will miss in the next twenty four hours isn't actually that hard.

The symbols are fun to paint - she's never been allowed to play with blood properly - and she lights the sacred incense, carefully recites the chants, maintains the proper atmosphere within the shrine's sanctuary - 

And tries to summon a god.

"I'm glad you enjoyed it."

"I'm really glad I found that book! Can I hug you?" She only hasn't already because sometimes shinobi don't react well to that. 

Permalink

A slightly confused look, and then a not-quite-natural nod. "If you wish."

Permalink

Hugs!

Permalink

She's clearly not good at hugging, like someone who's only recently started having practice at it, but she does a passable job of it.

Permalink

Decima can provide her with lots of practice!

She will eventually break the hug though in favor of bouncing off to get a proper look at their surroundings.

Ant appears to be looking around as well. They've been put down on a cliffside, in a space where the feasibly shouldn't be enough room for the buildings, and yet: none of them seem to have fallen away. Ahead of them, there's ocean as far as the eye can see.

Hisame looks around and behind them. "I don't recognize where we are. Too warm for northern Lightning... Must be pretty far south."

Permalink

"Far enough away that you've got a good headstart."

Permalink

"Hm. Might return, especially if I can grow my power... I do like Fire Country. It's a nice climate."

Permalink

"Sensible, make sure you've got the strength to take on those hunters you mentioned!"

Permalink

"Exactly! I'm going to need to train a lot, especially without a shinobi teacher, but it should be doable when I'm not being held back."

Permalink

"Well, I think Ira brought all the contents of the house, so... you have any books you already had?"

Permalink

"Shinobi don't write much down, but at least one of those books was quite useful."

Permalink

"...That seems like a surefire way to lose things when someone cares more about keeping their secrets and all the power than making sure it's passed on. Although that's also a reason not to write things down, but still..."

Permalink

"I think the concern is for - your opponents not getting your techniques, and if you're dead your clan probably is and people don't... Care about others outside their clan usually."

Permalink

"But if you're powerful enough, and your security is good enough, your opponents won't get their hands on that unless you're dead?"

Permalink

"No one's that powerful, and no one's security's that good."

Permalink

"Yours is now. No-one's gonna get past Ira."

Permalink

"That will certainly change quite a bit."

Permalink

"Uh-huh." Pause. "Do you think I could learn?"

Permalink

"I think some people can't use chakra? But there's always learnable stuff. Like, weapons, and taijutsu."

Permalink

"Sounds like my world. There's witches and wizards, but I'm not one. But there's something I can learn! What's taijutsu?"

Permalink

"Most people here can use chakra, even if they don't learn how. And taijutsu is bodily techniques - martial arts, excluding weapon-centered styles."

Permalink

"Ooh. Sounds fun. And who knows? Maybe I can use chakra as well. But it isn't like I'm losing anything by trying."
