"That's fine."

Permalink

"Thanks."

"I wanna pack up some stuff from here, since I'm not having to run - might be a decent chance to rest? We can steal some food and supplies and stuff, too, though we'd want to clear out the bodies first if we want to spend the night..."

Permalink

"I'd rather not stick around."

Permalink

She nods. "Yeah, same... Might not be safe, anyways, if their contacts come looking."

"So loot and move on?"

Permalink

She hums, nodding, and starts looting the corpses around them, before pushing them into the sea.

Elaise heads up to look for supplies and small valuables.

Permalink

There's a good amount. Many of the supplies are very helpfully already sealed in weather resistant storage scrolls, to prevent spoilage or reduce space. There's food and fresh water, mission supplies like a bed roll and tarps, medication and bandages, maps... All the scrolls are even labeled with their contents (in a shorthand that isn't hard to parse).

Valuables - also a good haul. This was a clan actively consolidating power, and while they weren't keeping all their funds and information on site, they had a good bit. An assortment of currencies, both domestic and foreign. There's a bit more in the way of the trade goods that double as commodity money in many regions - dense blocks of dried tea, spices, and sweets; bolts of cloth; dried cocoa beans; disks of copper and silver, some gold; and a large amount of shell jewelry and beads for smaller purchases. There's also weapons, some of them nice, and assorted personal effects, including some rather nice jewelry and a tiny collection of jeweled hair combs. Everything except the personal effects is tidily organized into the same kind of storage scrolls as the supplies.

It's not enough to make her exactly rich, but the wealth of a clan of around two dozen active shinobi who were commanding a network of over a hundred weaker sellswords and controlling the (meager) local trade is quite a lot when concentrated down to two girls with minimal needs.

Convenient that it's all sealed up for her already. She grabs a good selection before going to meet back up with Amajina.

Permalink

She has a waterproof bag slung over her shoulder, now, and some new scroll cases secured to her belt. She's looking into her old room with a complicated expression, but -

"Let's go."

Permalink

"Want to set anything on fire on the way out?"

Permalink

She giggles. "As much as we can."

Permalink

"Let's do it."

Permalink

Open the doors up top, start there, work their way down, then? To avoid the smoke building up where they're breathing. 

Permalink

Yep. Elaise will take out the bone netting with some well-placed strikes, fist wrapped in exoskeleton.

Permalink

"Cool."

Then: "I don't know any fire jutsu," she says, stretching. "But torches aren't exactly complicated."

Permalink

"I can do a small one."

Permalink

"Can you teach me it?"

Permalink

"Sure. The seals go like this..." She demonstrates, finishing with a pointing gesture, a thin stream of flame licking out.

Permalink

Deep hum, before she copies the motion - making more of a flicker like from a quickly extinguished lighter. 

Permalink

"Pretty good for the first try."

Permalink

Small grin. "Thanks. But I'll need to work on it if I want to light anything other than paper."

Permalink

"You can practice on the way down. I'll clean up behind you."

Permalink

"Works. Thanks."

Permalink

"Start when you're ready."
