PostSubject: BBQ [Open]   Wed Sep 23, 2015 3:12 pm

Holeman was out back. He filled the grill with charcoal and poured in pure alcohol from the medicine cabinet. He used a bit of Raiton chakra to light it, and watched the grill blaze for a second; the fire growing as tall as he was several moments.

It'd been a while since he last barbecued, so of course, many of his siblings and cousins were looking forward to Holeman's mouth watering cooking. Alec and he sat down to reminisce for a while, before he took to a room to catch up on some sleep. He said piloting his ship to Mori might take a day or two, and since he was the navigator that he'd need his rest. There was also the chance that they might run into trouble out on the water, like pirates, bandits or sea creatures.

The meat was properly seasoned, and covered so that insects couldn't land on it and get the party started early. His brother, sister and several cousins were running around in the backyard that Holeman had planted a grass patch in, and also had a garden to grow various herbs and other plants used in his poisons. He had to remind them every so often not to go running into the garden, because some of the plants were harmful to touch and would give rashes among other things.

Would Kouten and her brother show up? Holeman waited to see...

Kouten followed her nose as she went around back of the Holeman Clinic; pausing about halfway to glance behind her. She had a case of the goosebumps mostly due to thinking that at some point "master" was going to show up and try and take her away again. She felt strong enough to beat up goons and bandits, but going up against a seasoned S-rank missing nin was another story: and she didn't think she was ready as much as she did want to fight him and give him a dose of his own medicine.

Shaking her head with a sigh she forced herself to turn around and keep walking until she was in the backyard: she wasn't going to allow the idea of that bastard showing up ruin her chances of having a good time and making some friends. She could see several people running around and playing in a backyard which had grass – a bit of a strange sight in a desert so filled with sand and rock. She could also see a garden nearby, and figured there was probably more growing there then fruits or vegetables given that Holeman was a medic.

She then turned her attention over towards Holeman as she pushed her black hair out of her face, and waved with a grin.

Kouten walked into the backyard. There were kids running around, laughing and happy. Holeman was by a grill that had a raging fire. The food he was going to prepare was by him. There was grass back here, which looked a little strange considering all of the yellow sand. He didn't see Alec, so Konran figured that maybe he was resting up for the journey to the next village.

Holeman knew how to cook too, then? The kid was something special indeed if he knew how to do so much at only 10 years of age. It kind of made Konran wish he had an upbringing like his, full of love and surrounded by family that cared about him, not by two maniacs who beat him into a weapon. Konran couldn't help but to be a bit envious, but he didn't let this show.

Konran found an out of the way place in the backyard to sit down on the ground and lean back onto a wall, taking the Shift Blade from his back and leaning it on his left shoulder. He didn't quite know what to say, so he remained silent while looking around some, but mostly thinking of the fight he just got in...

"No! Slow down doggie! SLOW DOWN! No, not the bush! LOOK OUT FOR THE BUSH!", Neo called out; her usual bubbly voice filled with all kinds of stress. Neo's left wrist was wrapped in a knot via a leash that was attached to a far too large black dog. The dog had been due to be put down because he was too large and no one wanted him so naturally Neo had felt the need to save him and adopt him immediately.

She had managed to get the giant beast outside of the adoption center when he had taken off down the street; naturally dragging Neo along with him since she was easily fifty pounds lighter than the dog. At the moment Neo was being dragged nearly along the ground, barely keeping her hand on her umbrella which also happened to be a sword.

"No! DOGGIE! STOP IT THIS INSTANT!"

The dog didn't heed her warning at all; it was simply following its nose. The smell of seasoned meat had been picked up by the giant beast and he was happily running towards it. Around the Holeman Clinic he dragged her, skidding to a stop once he got into the backyard: a friendly look on the dog's face and his tongue lolling out the side of his mouth. "Ugh... doggie... we need to work on your manners...", Neo stated as she got to her feet and made quick work of untangling the knotted leash from around her wrist. It was then that she looked around, blinking: apparently the giant beast of a dog had dragged her into what was clearly a cookout of some kind.

There was a fight not far away. From the looks of things, some of the goons and riff raff around the village thought they were going to have an easy way with one of the visitors to Sabaku, their intention being to take his strange smoking sword, but the guy quickly showed that he wasn't just a kid. Furthermore, he had help from Kouten. While one of them was in bad shape, having to be carried to the hospital, none of them were killed. Through it all, Holeman failed to notice Kouten's twin brother.

Kouten and Konran came into the backyard momentarily, as Holeman began to lay the first of the ribs onto the grill. When Kouten waved with a grin, Holeman nodded back to her. "Still no bro, huh... too bad," he said, shaking his head some. Holeman tried to figure out what he did wrong or what was so wrong with him that made it to where the dude didn't want to be friends.

"Awwwwhh," protested Joy when she saw Kouten and Konran coming into the backyard. "Still no twin? But I wanted to see himmmmm!"

"I did too!" added Bart.

Mother Holeman came outside, carrying a tray of appetizers and cold drinks of her own making. Mother Holeman was a tall beautiful woman with blood red hair. She was large, only because she was pregnant, wearing a multi colored dress and sandals on her feet. Mother Holeman was wearing a black cloth over her eyes. She saw the look on Holeman's face and frowned some.

"Young lady, can you explain the deal with your brother? Because I don't understand," Mother asked, looking towards Kouten.

"Mom, it's no big deal, don't get riled up," Holeman said with a grin, waving a gloved hand.

"No, it is a big deal," mother continued. "...As you can see, we don't get many visitors to the desert, and Holeman - while he does have his brothers and sisters and cousins - doesn't have any male friends his age outside of the family. Why did your brother just run off the other day at the park, Kouten? I was watching, i'll have you know. Did he truly think that he was going to come between Holeman and Mitsukai? They've known each other for as long as they've been alive; I changed that girl's diapers myself. That can't be the whole reason behind it, does he have a problem with us because we're blind? I mean, what is it?"

"Looks to me like he's too busy with some other chick, some girl who smells like water," said Nona, also coming outside to take a seat in one of the comfortable lawn chairs next to the door inside of the house with the awning above it and several other chairs to hide from the burning hot sun.

"I saw that too," continued Mother, wiping her forehead with a handkerchief. "The way it's told to me, a maniac is loose in the village somewhere, the maniac who caused you pain and all those injuries that Holeman healed, but your brother would rather go flirt around with some girl?"

"Booooo. What a lame," said Bart.

"Your brother's a poopy head," added Joy to Kouten.

Nona waved to Kouten. "You're perfectly safe here, Holeman wouldn't let anything happen to you. He might be small but he's an amazing fighter, nobody can beat him! He used to beat up grown men when he was only 5, that's why he's the Chosen One!"

"Blehhhh, no need for all that," said Holeman, spraying the meat with one of his squirt bottles containing his special sauce. "You know I hate it when you put me up on this pedestal, cut it out, yeah?"

"I just wanted my son to have a friend here in the village. It doesn't look like that's happening now. Some water girl seems more interesting than that, and also his sister's well being."

It would be around this time that the girl came speeding into the backyard with the dog. A big dog that Joy, Bart and several of his other cousins all went running over to, smothering the animal with petting. "That's her, right?" Nona asked.

"The girl he was lusting over? That would be affirmative," replied mother.

Holeman turned the ribs over with a loud sizzle sound. "Quit being drama llamas or no ribs for you," he said while stepping over towards the new girl. Holeman smelled the air several times with his sensitive nose, coming to find that his mother and sister were right; she did smell highly of water, which meant she had to be from the water village Umigakure. "Hi. I don't know how much you heard, but don't mind them. They're both very pregnant, and their nerves are on edge. My name's Holeman. You must be a visitor from Umigakure, right? You're here now so you can join us if you want. I'll try to answer any questions you may have."

Holeman didn't want the girl to get the wrong idea, like, she was at fault for anything that was happening, because she wasn't. He hoped he could clear up the matter with her before she took things the wrong way.

Upon her arrival Holeman made a comment about her twin not coming with her. This was followed up by more comments form other members of his family.  Both Holeman's brother and sister commented that they had wanted to see him. Following this Mother Holeman came out and asked her what the deal was with her brother. Holeman tried to tell her that it wasn't a big deal, but she said that it was and that Holeman needed some male friends. She wanted to know why her brother had ran off like he had the other day in the park, and asked if he truly though he could get between Holeman and Mitsukai who had apparently known each other since they were in diapers. Nona then came outside, saying that it looked like he was with some other chick who smelled like water.

Kouten, now frowning somewhat, was beginning to feel like perhaps it was a bad idea to have come. She didn't have the answers they wanted; and she wasn't her brother's keeper. She couldn't speak on what he did or didn't do, nor did she know why he had left so quickly from the park the other day.

When they brought up the fact that the man who had caused her her injuries and all of that pain she couldn't help but glance back, still half expecting to see him standing there. She was worried that like the Devil he might appear if mentioned too much. They mentioned that it seemed like her brother was more interesting in flirting with a girl than her own well being, but before Kouten could even focus on that into the yard came a rather colorful girl who was being dragged by a massive looking dog. The dog came to a stop, looking quite happy and friendly with his tongue hanging out the side of its mouth and the girl was able to free herself from the tangled leash she had been ensnared in. From what she heard from Nona and Mother Holeman, this was apparently the female her brother had been seen with. The girl's manner of dress made it clear she belonged to another village while the strong smell of ocean that surrounded her made it clear she was from Umigakure.

"….." Kouten was finding herself feeling more and more confused, and more than a bit hurt over the situation.

Konran didn't know what to say. After he and Kouten showed up, Holeman's people began to bombard her with questions about her brother. Holeman tried to blow it all off for the most part, even though he looked sort of troubled by it all, but his mother and sister spoke their minds. From what they were saying and what he understood, Kouten's brother tried to come between Holeman and someone named Mitsukai, presumably a close friend. When it didn't work, he ran off.

Mother Holeman wanted Holeman to have friends his age that lived here in the village, and apparently the one candidate seemed to rather chase after girls. There were other visitors in Sabaku too, from the water village known as Umigakure, and Kouten's brother was "lusting" after her as she put it.

"...Hey," Konran said, taking advantage in a momentary lapse of silence. "Uh, I might be a few years older than Holeman, and I might not be from Sabaku, but... i'll be his friend... Marquetta and Alec both said it was cool for is villagers to travel back and fourth, so I'll come visit him..."

They mentioned that guy in the village looking for Kouten. Holeman's sister said that Holeman was an amazing fighter and that she had nothing to worry about because no one could beat him. Konran had no reason to doubt that. if the guy happened to show up, Konran wasn't going to just sit here. He'd help to protect her too. It was the least he could do since she'd come to his aid.

A girl was dragged into the backyard by a big dog, and she was identified as the girl that Kouten's brother was hitting on. The kids ran to pet the animal. Holeman went to introduce himself and to further try to quell the situation before it turned into something it didn't have to be. Kouten found it strange that the youngest of them all was acting the oldest about the situation. He was beginning to see why he was called "The Chosen One;" he was something else to only be 10 years old...

The giant black dog was surrounded by children interested in petting him and he soaked up the attention happily: licking faces where he could and genuinely being a very good dog: a gentle giant so to speak.

While the giant dog was getting attention Neo looked down at her wrist, ensuring that it wasn't broken or injured in any way: which it wasn't. She became aware that she had been for some reason being discussed. Apparently someone had been lusting over her? People tended to talk about her, or whisper about her anyway due to her strange appearance even when she was home, so she simply grinned from ear to ear and didn't pay it any mind. She noticed several people in the backyard outside of the little kids; two pregnant women, a girl with black wild looking hair and piercings that looked like they probably hurt, and a kid with a sword that was giving off what looked to be smoke.

Her mismatched gaze then turned onto Holeman as he approached her. "Haha, no worries. It's nice to meet you. I'm Neo and you're right: I am from Umigakure. That's... well, I haven't actually named him yet. He just kind of smelled food and dragged me here before I really had the chance." Holeman said he could join them, which caused her to grin more, and commented that he'd answer questions she might have. "Well, you could tell me whose apparently lusting after me?", she asked, laughing easily. She thought the situation was funny and amusing, not offensive as likely others might have.

She confirmed that she was from Umigakure, and said her name was Neo. She said she hadn't given the dog a name yet, who seemed to be enjoying all of the attention he was getting from Holeman's siblings. She didn't seem offended or anything; to Holeman she was beginning to come off as a girly girl, not that there was anything wrong with that.

"Well uh, you came back here in the middle of a situation," Holeman said, making adjustments to his du-rag. He pointed to Kouten. "She has a twin brother, I forgot his name. I was thinking we could be friends since we're around the same age but I guess he has other things on the brain. He was seen flirting around with you last. Before that, I guess he had eyes for my best friend Mitsukai, and she hadn't seen me for almost a year, and while he was trying to put the moves on her she ran past him to come see me. Seems like that bothered him some, cause he left after that with no word. I asked Kouten to bring him to this BBQ but he didn't show up. So it looks like he has some kinda problem or something. Doesn't really matter to me, but my folks are really teed off about it..."

Holeman went back to the grill to turn the meat over again, spraying the racks with his sauce. "There's also some weirdo here somewhere who's after her. I'm not gonna put her personal business out there or anything, but they have... history. He was the source of a lot of her pain in the past, and now it looks like he's here for round 2. You'd think he'd be around her to have her back, right? I guess not. So we're keeping her safe."

Mother Holeman put a hand on Kouten's shoulder. "Listen sweetheart, don't take anything that was said personally, alright? None of this is your fault," she said, noticing that what was said was visibly affecting her. "I tend to over-react when it comes to my Holeman, he's a special child as you've probably seen. I only want the best for him. I was hoping that your brother and him could have been friends, but your brother has other things in mind."

Mother Holeman looked towards Konran when he spoke up, saying he'd be Holeman's friend even though he was a few years older and not from Sabaku. "That's very sweet of you, Konran, was it? I think i'd much rather have you around anyway. Alec told me about you, I think you need to be around other people your age after what you've been through, and what better place than right here?"

"Fine with me bro," said Holeman with a grin, giving a wave towards Konran. He agreed with his mother; Konran was seeming like a better idea...

Konran spoke up, saying that he would be Holeman's friend even though he was a few years older than him and not from Sabakugakure. The dog that had dragged the girl in was still receiving a boatload of attention from Holeman's siblings and seemed to be nothing more than a gentle giant despite dragging the new arrival, Neo, into the yard. Neo was the girl her brother was last seen with; flirting with him apparently. Kouten wasn't one to judge: the girl seemed nice enough and seemed to smile and laugh a lot which was good too. She confirmed that she was from Umigakure, and then asked Holeman who was apparently lusting after her.

Holeman went on to answer her by explaining that Kouten had a twin who was last seen flirting with Neo, and that before that had tried to get in the middle of Mitsukai and Holeman. Holeman had gone on to invite him to the barbeque, but her brother hadn't shown up. Holeman added that there was a weirdo running around after Kouten – though he kept most of the details out of it – and he figured that her brother should be here to have her back. But, since he wasn't they would keep her safe.

It was then that her attention shifted as Mother Holeman put her hand on Kouten's shoulder. Kouten was getting better with people touching her, and didn't flinch like she normally would have. Mother Holeman told her not to take anything personally, and said that this wasn't her fault. She said she tended to over react when it came to Holeman, that she had been hoping Amatsu and Holeman could be friends but that Amatsu apparently had other things in mind. Kouten couldn't comment on that: she didn't know what her brother was thinking nor his reasoning for not wanting to come to the barbeque. "I can't speak for my twin; I dunno what he's thinking lately."

It was then that she paused, glancing back again as another feeling reigned familiar within her: Pyra was close by. The "demon" as he was referred to despite looking completely human had been manifested nearly a year ago from her own thoughts, and since then had been her protector. He had apparently, upon sensing her stress and upset, decided to come see what was going on. "… Oh..Pyra's coming. He... looks scary, but he won't hurt anyone. When I was going through that... stuff... he protected me in my mind. When I was free he.. just sort of appeared as a physical gaurdian." Sure enough a moment later Pyra came into the backyard too, and looked around as if trying to see if there was a threat; his pyramid covered head turning this way and that: he was wearing his usual butchers smock though he had pants on underneath as well. Not seeing a thread he wandered over to Kouten and tapped her on the shoulder.

Kouten glanced back to Pyra and couldn't help but grin. "I'm alright." Pyra would grunt in response, and then Kouten would make quick work introducing everyone. When she got to Holeman she would tilt her head as Pyra, upon hearing the name, would walk over to Holeman and stick his hand out as if he wanted to shake his: Pyra didn't speak, but he felt he could convey his thank you in other methods.

Kouten simply grinned. "Pyra doesn't talk.. but I think he's trying to say thanks for how you helped me.." Pyra simply grunted in response.

While Holeman explained things to the girl named Neo from Umigakure, his mother said that she'd rather it was Konran around Holeman over that other guy, and that Alec had told her about him. He'd been meaning to tell Alec his while story, but that would probably come later on. Konran nodded his head to Mother Holeman and to Holeman himself when he said it was fine with him.

Kouten said she didn't know what was up for her brother and that she couldn't speak for him. She then said that someone named Pyra was coming. She said that when she was going through her thing, whoever he was protected her mind. When she got free, he just appeared some kind of way. When the individual walked into the backyard, Konran's first instinct was to take one knee from his sitting position with the scabbard of the Shift Blade in his left hand, the sword ready to be drawn.

Kouten said he wouldn't hurt anyone, but it never hurt to be cautious. He seemed to look around at everyone as Kouten introduced them, even with that thing on his head. Konran was growing used to the fact that there were some people who could see even if they didn't use their eyes. When she introduced Holeman, he went over and made like he wanted to shake hands.

All Konran could think was, if this guy could show up, even looking like he did, what was the brother's problem? Did he care at all?

Holeman said that she had arrived in the middle of a situation, causing her to glance over towards the dog getting all of the attention, before focusing her attention back onto him. Apparently the girl with the piercings and the black hair had a twin brother though Holeman had forgotten his name. He had wanted to become friends with this guy, but it seemed like that wasn't meant to happen. Holeman explained that the guy got upset because he had been talking to Mitsukai when she had spotted Holeman – whom she hadn't seen for a year – and had ran over to him. Holeman had invited him to the barbeque he had going on, anyway, but he hadn't showed. Now there was also a situation with a weirdo running around who had hurt the girl with the piercings and black hair, but since her brother wasn't there they were keeping her safe.

To Neo it sounded like a bunch of drama; stuff she didn't want involved in personally. Howeve,r that didn't stop her from thinking back and trying to figure out who this individual could be: there was only one person she had spoken to who even remotely looked like the girl named Kouten and that was a kid named Amatsu who had taken her to a museum, and then out to dinner afterward. "Huh.... I see. Well, at least you have him as a friend now.", she said, grinning again and trying to look on the bright side of things as Neo always did. "Plus, it sounds like you have some other cool friends; even if they're all female. Some people don't have any friends at all..." Neo frowned a bit; she didn't have any friends back home in her village, she only had her father who was busy constantly due to being the kage.

Then another individual was arriving with some strange pyramid shaped hat on his head that covered and hid the whole thing. Neo found herself wondering how he could see with that thing on his head, but thought it might be rude to ask so she didn't. "You pulled him out of your mind?", she asked curiously. "That's kind of cool." She watched as Pyra, as he was called, walked over to Holeman with his hand out as if he wanted to shake hands while Konran looked like he was waiting to defend against the pale human-looking creature. Neo simply lifted her umbrella and rested it on her shoulder, blocking out the sun as she began to twirl it.

Kouten said that she couldn't speak for her twin and that she didn't know what he was thinking. Holeman had already put the dude out of his mind. Obviously he had some kind of problem. Holeman wasn't going to let it worry him. Alec was on this continent, as well as many of his old friends from Makkura. Konran said he'd be a friend too.

"Well, he's obviously not thinking with the head on his shoulders, but the one in his pants," said Mother Holeman.

"Ewww, gross," said Joy. Holeman grabbed one of the cold drinks his mother brought out to take along drink of it.

Kouten said Pyra was coming, that he looked scary, and that he wouldn't hurt anyone. She said while going through her torment he protected her from in her mind, and when she got free he just sort of appeared. Then he was in the backyard. All of Holeman's siblings went silent and quickly backed away from him. Mother Holeman backed away too when he came over to tap Kouten on her shoulder.

Holeman himself didn't move. He watched closely, just to make sure the guy with the pyramid thing on his head didn't make any sudden moves with his pregnant mother and sister out here. When Kouten introduced him and he came towards Holeman, the kids all whined and his mother looked worried. Pyra held his hand out with a grunt, and Kouten said it was his way of saying thanks. Holeman looked up at the guy and shook the hand.

"Stop being so paranoid, she said the guy wouldn't hurt anyone," Holeman said with a chuckle.

"You can take the helmet off, Pyra...", Kouten commented after Pyra had shaken Holeman's hand. Pyra turned his attention towards her, obviously staring at her by some means, before he lifted both hands to the sides of the large pyramid helmet he wore and removed it. Pyra's face was revealed then: he would appear as any other human albeit pale, with a youthful face that would put him roughly sixteen or so, chin length black hair pushed back, and eyes the color of molten lava. With the helmet off Kouten found that Pyra seemed far less scary; if anything he could pass as a butcher apprentice with the pants and smock he had on.

Pyra placed his helmet down out of the way and then returned to Kouten's side where he hovered. It hadn't escaped his notice that he was making people a bit nervous, so he figured that for now he would just stick by Kouten. Kouten turned her attention onto Pyra and poked him on the nose only to receive a poke to her ribs that had her jumping back and giggling: which made Pyra grin.

She would then look to Neo, having heard her question. "I'm part of two clans; one of which had guardians that protected them. It's... a long story, but the basics are that the children when they're very young get a guardian. It's a specific ritual that causes the binding to happen; I didn't go through that. However, given what happened to me Pyra just sort of... heard it. It's why he was only able to manifest in my mind at first instead of physically like he is. He's nothing more than a permanent summon, basically. He made the first few days of... freedom... bearable, while I tried to adjust."

Holeman's family was worried, but Holeman wasn't. He and Pyra shook hands. Pyra took his pyramid thing off of his head to reveal that he looked maybe a couple of years older than himself. Konran sat back on his behind and leaned the Shift Blade back onto his left shoulder since Pyra suddenly didn't seem so scary anymore. He'd still keep an eye on him. There were women who were pregnant back here, after all.

Kouten said besides being part Nara, she was also part of a clan who had guardians to watch over them. She said the kids get a guardian and had to go through a ritual of some sort to draw them out, and though she didn't go through it, the pain she must have suffered caused Pyra to appear. Basically he was a summon. Konran had heard about summons before, from his mother; one of the few things she taught him.

Konran took one of the cold drinks and gulped it down; the refreshing chill feeling in his throat welcoming. He wondered when Alec was going to wake up and come join the party. He looked towards Neo when she said "some people don't have any friends at all" and frowned some. Maybe she was talking about herself? She wouldn't have frowned like that if it were any way else.

"Uh..." Konran said, drinking down the last of his cold drink. "Maybe you should visit Kurayamigakure one day then, Neo. I hear Alec has some cool people working with him. A guy who controls Iron Sand, and another guy who's good with crows; a Nara like me and Kouten. There's these twins who're supposed to be like genius level. Then there's Alec of course. Mysterious guy. He has a big ship, it's in the harbor..."

Konran fell silent again, not knowing what else to say.

Mother Holeman said that Amatsu wasn't likely thinking with the head on his shoulders but the one in his pants: something that went over the too innocent and nieve Neo's head. But, whatever it meant likely wasn't too good since Joy said 'Ewww' in response. Then Kouten was telling Pyra he could take his helmet off after her shook Holeman's hand. Pyra stopped looking so scary once it was off, and in fact looked like a normal human being minus his eyes. Kouten then went on to tell the story of how it was she came about having Pyra; it had something to do with one of the clans she had been born in. He had started out in her head to protect her from what was happening to her, and then had manifested a physical body once she was free. He had continued to help her after that, and had made her life bearable once she was 'free'. Neo didn't know what exactly had happened to the girl, but it was beginning to sound like she had been some kind of slave: and Neo didn't like slavery at all. it made her want to whoop the guy's butt who had harmed Kouten, even though she had just met her.

"Hm. Pyra doesn't seem so scary now.", as she spoke she would wander over to Pyra without a single ounce of fear showing. She would extend a hand and poke him lightly on the nose with a giggle before withdrawing her hand away.  

Then Konran was speaking to her, telling her that maybe she should visit Kurayamigakure. He explained about some of the people and she couldn't help but grin a bit more. "That sounds like a pretty cool idea, actually. My dad gave me permission to be gone as long as I want – though I only told him I was coming here. Hm... maybe I should write home... but then again he's probably busy. He's the Umikage." Normally, she didn't bother telling people who her father was, but she felt that these were good people and had no reason not to trust them.

After Pyra took off the thing on his head, revealing himself to look not too much older than Kouten or Konran, and Kouten explaining that Pyra was a guardian and a summon, part of the other clan she was in, and Pyra stopped seeming so scary, the kids eventually went back to playing. Trusting that Holeman would handle things out here if it got out of hand, Mother Holeman went back inside.


Holeman went to turn the meat over a few more times, keeping the food seasoned with his special sauce. Konran suggested that Neo visit Kurayamigakure, as there were several out there in her age range, such as Kinzoku, Kuro, Kurai and Hikari, as well as Alec himself. "Don't forget about Artemis, and the new girl, Jynx too," Holeman added.


Holeman was positive that if Neo went out there, she'd probably make friends with them all, and probably catch the eye of one of the males; likely Kinzoku or Kurai, since Kuro - if Holeman remembered correctly - didn't like too many people. With a grin Holeman thought about how that would end up. Would Kouten's brother get mad? Would he do something about it? Probably not...


"Oh, before I forget, I need to give you guys something," he said, walking over to Kouten and reaching into his pocket to pull out a vile of something green. Making sure the top was on tightly he put the glass vile in Kouten's hand. "I want you to have this in case that guy shows his face. It's a poison I made called Crank. it's super toxic and starts working right away, so MAKE SURE none of this gets in your skin, alright? if it does, come see me AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. There's no cure, and i'm the only person in this village that can remove it from your bloodstream before you die."

Pyra simply went momentarily cross eyed when he was poked on the nose but didn't react violently at all. He tilted his head a bit to the side as he watched Neo for a second, and then shifted his focus and attention back onto Kouten: he obviously took his job as her guardian very, very seriously.

Kouten, meanwhile, had looked towards Holeman when he walked over and pulled something out of his pocket, mentioning that he had something to give her. She listened to his explanation, keeping well in mind not to get it on herself if she happened to have to use it. She nodded with a grin. "Alright, thanks. I'll be careful with it. It was then placed into her pouch, carefully, where it would be safe from being spilled or anything else happening to it.

"I'm kind of torn between wanting to see that guy again and kick his ass for all he did, and going the rest of my life without seeing him. I guess.. it'd be better to know first hand he was down and down for good then to go through the rest of my life worrying about him though." Pyra, not wanting her to feel sad again, reached down and hugged her awkwardly: clearly he was better at killing things then making people feel better, but he was trying at least. Kouten simply laughed. "No worries, I'm not sad or scared anymore... I feel better being around so many people."

Konran nodded his head when Holeman said not to forget about Artemis and Jynx. he wasn't too sure about how she would feel about constant darkness, but the girl would 9 times out of 10 like coming to Kurayami.

The handle of the Shift Blade had a hidden compartment in the tip. There wasn't anything in there currently except for a metal bar that was used for sharpening the blade. Konran took it out and unsheathed the Shift Blade to slowly run the blade along the metal bar, sharpening the weapon.

Holeman gave Kouten a green colored poison, in case the guy after her showed his face. He said it was very toxic and to be careful that it didn't get into her skin, otherwise he was the only person in the village that could save her. Whatever that stuff was had to be pretty dangerous.

The smell of the food cooking just made him more hungry. He wondered when it would be done...

It was seeming like a pretty good idea to go visit Kurayami. Though; the idea of doing something behind her father's back without his express permission caused her to be a bit worried. She had always carefully followed the rules: she abided by them and held others to them rather strictly. Yet, if she went without seeking her father's permission she would be breaking some rules, laws, and then some. Yet, none of these thoughts caused her any stress; instead Neo simply got a rather thoughtful look on her face as she pondered over what she wanted to do.

While her thoughts were a jumble of ideas and choices she watched as Holeman gave something that looked like some kind of poison – or so she guessed given her own medical knowledge – to Kouten. He warned her about being careful with it, and his words and the fact that it was clear it reacted upon contact with skin, definitely made it very very dangerous.

When Kouten spoke of how she felt about finding the man; how she half wanted to and half didn't want to, Neo found herself wanting to kill him. She still didn't have all of the details of what the man had done, but she had a pretty good guess. Being a medic herself she had seen what horrible things that people could do to each other. So, it wasn't hard to stretch her imagination a million different ways to come up with what had happened.

Holeman handed a vial of the poison to Konran. Kouten said she wasn't sure if she wanted to face the guy or just avoid him. She said the should it would be better that the guy was done for first hand rather than continue living, knowing that he was out there, somewhere, lurking in the shadows.

"Better to kick his butt," Holeman said, beginning to fix plates. "Some weird guys used to roam the desert back home. They used to go in people's houses and kill them. Me and Mitsukai knew that if we didn't stop those guys they'd keep on killing and stalking, so we took them out."

"To think, you were practically babies back then too," said Nona with a grin. "That was an exciting time. Fresh out of diapers and fighting S Ranked ninja..."

Holeman shoved a plate into Nona's lap causing her to laugh. "Shaddap and eat," he said. Holeman fixed plates of BBQ and a potato concoction that resembled french fries for his brothers, sisters, cousins, Kouten, Konran and Neo, handing them out. Many other Holemans came out of the back door and began to fix themselves plates, all having a different method of covering their eyes. Some looked in Konran's direction, in Neo's direction and in Kouten's direction, as their chakra radar's weren't as good as Holeman's and they had to get closer for a better look.

Holeman jumped and produced himself one of his purple storm clouds, sitting upon it to begin eating his own plate while it hovered several feet above the backyard.

"Does someone need their butt kicked?", Mitsukai asked as she hopped down from the roof and landed lightly on the ground before pushing her red hood from her cape off of her head. A yawn punctuated the air and she stretched; fingers stretched skyward as she rose up on the tips of her black boot covered toes. She held the pose for a moment before relaxing again. She had just woken up from a well needed nap and had followed her nose to the backyard. Her stomach was already roaring to life as she went over to make herself a plate.

Silver eyes glanced over several new faces, one of which she recognized from the other day at the park, but most of which she hadn't seen yet. "New friends? Sweet. I'm Mitsukai.", she would comment after getting her plate of food.

Much like Holeman she would produce a cloud out of thin air and sit down on it like a chair; hovering several feet above the ground as she took her first bite of food and groaned happily. "Mm... I missed your cooking. So good. I'm so hungry I could eat an entire horse... or maybe a cow; that might taste better than a horse."

Kouten nodded to Holeman's words. She knew it was better to put the guy down and know he was done for good then to continue to have to worry about him. Or worse, risk him randomly showing up and catching her off guard. That was the last thing that she wanted. "Very true. Better to be done with him then to risk him catching me off guard."

As she sat down and began to eat she noticed the arrival of a female wearing a red cloak despite the desert heat. The female seemed quite at ease, and introduced herself as Mitsukai after asking if someone needed their butt kicked. She made herself a plate of food and then did much like Holeman did with the cloud: making Kouten think that they likely knew some kind of advanced release to be able to make clouds appear like that out of nowhere.

"I'm Kouten.", she'd introduce herself as between bites of food. Pyra meanwhile just kept nearby, though he was relaxed enough to be looking around and giving some distance between himself and Kouten.

Konran wasn't expecting Holeman to give him some of the poison stuff too, and was surprised when he handed the vial of the green substance to him. "Uh... Thanks!" was Konran's response, looking at the stuff with wide eyes. Konran would be sure to remember what Holeman said about not letting the poison get into the skin. He moved the vial back and fourth to watch the green fluid move inside.

Kouten said she wasn't sure if she wanted to fight that guy, or avoid him. Holeman said it was better to kick his butt, and commented on how he and someone named Mistukai fought bad people in his home desert. Holeman's sister said that they were practically babies fighting S-Ranked ninja. It was hard to imagine that.

Holeman fixed plates for everyone, and the rest of his family started coming out. He noticed the "stares" from some of them, and still couldn't quite understand how those eyes of chakra worked. Maybe he'd never know. He did know that he had to develop some kind of way to sense people so that no one else got the drop on him.

Holeman handed him a plate and Konran thanked him again. He began to eat when a girl came out, eventually introducing herself as Mitsukai. She didn't much look like a fighter like Holeman did, but he remembered a saying from one of the books he'd read, "Looks can be deceiving." Konran pocketed his vial of "Crank" and began to eat the delicious home cooked food.

Suddenly another female arrived, this one looking like something out of a macrebre Red Riding Hood book though when the hood was removed she seemed happy and nice. The female grabbed herself a plate, seeming quite at home despite clearly not being part of the Holeman clan, and then produced herself a cloud similiar to Holeman's and sat down next to him. She introduced herself as Mitsukai, and commented that she had missed Holeman's cooking.

Several more Holeman's also arrived, grabbing themselves food, and taking a closer look at herself and the others: which Neo didn't actually mind. She was quite an odd ball as it was given her hair coloration so it wasn't anything she wasn't used to.

Instead of adding anything to the conversation she simply kept quiet and worked on eating her delicious food that Holeman had cooked. She simply listened to the conversation as she did so, thinking about what might happen if she ended up running into this bad guy who had harmed Kouten. Neo never really looked like the type to be a fighter, but she definitely did have tricks up her sleeve, and she wasn't afraid to fight if it came down to it. Plus, she happened to agree that it was better to get rid of this guy now then to allow him to continue to roam around: he'd either come back to try and hurt Kouten or end up harming someone else if he hadn't already.
