Excruciating (Takeo) Empty Excruciating (Takeo)

Fri Jul 08, 2016 3:48 am
The preparations were in full swing. Where only a few weeks ago grey and bleak hues had dominated the village of Kumogakure no Sato, a splash of color had appeared, almost as if lost on its way to a rainbow. The sun Akihana was sure no longer shone on her once home was starting to make an appearance, thin, waning and sallow but with a breath of warmth that had made Akihana almost cry tears of happiness. The first streamer to appear in the main village was a bright green, appearing in the middle of the night and laid stark against the grey building and decaying scent of flesh. No one had claimed responsibility for it, no one had dared to.

But like all acts of rebellion, this too had doubled when left calculatedly unattended. Over the course of the next few days, more ribbons and streamers began to appear, some in shop windows, some on the side of apartment buildings and one bold decoration on a street sign announcing the upcoming nuptials of the Raiage. Akihana had taken to walking around the village each day, both to see the colours coming to life and to carry out her own personal plans. She was still a creature of the people and it seemed they were warming up to her now too. It had taken a month but she must have done something to prove herself given the indifferent and friendly looks she now received as opposed to the hostile glares she begot when she'd first arrived.

Of course, no one dared approach her except Hikashi what with Akuoy's constant presence by her side. The clone only left her when she was with his master and Akihana did not spend much time in the Raikage's company. There was no need to. Nor did Youka particularly care for her company which in itself was reassuring.

Today, someone had found pink in spray paint. The word "CONGRATULATIONS" spelled out in loopy font all over the side of a warehouse used by one of the local businesses. Whether the colour was a coincident or someone had somehow found out she particularly liked it, Akihana couldn't say. It did make her smile though. Not the congratulations itself that was scrawled in childish letters of pink but the though that someone had taken yet another step to defy the bleakness of Kumo now, attempting to make it more cheerful. Slowly, life and light were returning to the village.

And at least the light intended to keep on shining.

Just as she was about to politely ask Akuoy who he thought was responsible for the latest splash of color in their otherwise dull existence, a familiar snort reached her ears, making her golden eyes widen in surprise. Did she really miss home that much? Was she hearing...The blonde's gaze traveled to the source of the noise and almost immediately, it was met with the stout frame of Pig, laboring his way towards her as it snort-panted, its snout covered in dirt and what looked like...

"Oh no!" the blonde let out a cry of distress, scooping up the hem of her dark blue dress and jogging over to the pig who was struggling to move. Kneeling down beside the animal, her hands already glowing green with healing chakra, Akihana assessed the animal quickly, finding out that while the splashes of red were indeed blood, it was human.

"Pig, where's Takeo?" she asked in a panic as Akuoy stood stoically by her side. the animal ignored the clone, snorting a short series of snorts at her. "What do you mean he's hutr? Where is he?" she asked, the panic in her voice growing. Pig tried to lead the way, only for his plump frame to finally collapse from effort. Wasting nobtime, the medic picked up the animal in her arms, getting dirt, blood and pig perspiration all over her dress but not caring about it in the least.

"Just show me the way, I'll carry you," she offered. Pig snorted , resigned to being carried around like a tiny piglet for the time being. Together, Akihana, Akuoy and the porky familiar arrived at the village gates where they found Takeo on the ground, lying in a pool of his own blood.

"Oh no, please be alright, please be alright," the kunoichi murmured under her breath as she sank down into the mud and grime beside the unconscious male, her hands once again applying medical ninjusu to Takeo's injuries. Why was he here? She had left him to look after her home? Was there bad news? Who could have hurt such an able shinobi like him?

All those questions would have to wait though, as her white haired friend didn't seem to be in the mood to do anything but lay where he was, his eyes closed to the world and his heartbeat erratic as Akihana worked to stop the bleeding, clean the wound and heal it accordingly.

Excruciating (Takeo) Empty Re: Excruciating (Takeo)

Sun Jul 24, 2016 1:25 pm
"Takeo,"the blonde called out, hoping he could hear her voice as she knelt by his side, The blood loss appeared to b the major problem causing the weakness but the wound, despite many attempts at immature stitching and breaking open, was festering. The white haired shinobi was no doubt also suffering from an infection that was attacking his immune system along with the blood loss. Shifting carefully to sit with her feet tucked neatly underneath her, the blonde pulled Takeo's head into her lap, one hand over his chest to assess the heartbeat while the other glowing green with replenishing chakra and blood. He had lost way too much.

"He's going to be okay Pig," she mumbled as she worked, more for her own assurance than the familiar's. Akihana had no idea how her friend had gotten into such a pickle but she did know that he must have been nursing that infected laceration for a while. As she worked, a series of assurances spilling from her lips to both Pig and Takeo, the medic could only hope she wasn't too late. Akouy, after the initial shock of a stranger showing up at the village nearly dead, seemed to have recomposed himself into doing nothing save witnessing the event. He wasn't helping but Akihana was at least grateful he wasn't stopping her.

Switching over to chakra scalpel, the kunoichi made a quick cut near the original wound, applying chakra pressure to make it bleed more. It wasn't working, the blood coming out was still too dark, too congealed, too devoid of a healthy hemoglobin level. Pig let out a stressful snort as he noticed ehr making incisions along Takeo's side and she had to keep the familiar calm as she worked. "We have to get all the bad blood out first sweetie," she murmured, her golden eyes focused as the blood continued to flow. "We can't let it stay in him or he'll get worse." Whether Pig trusted her or didn't understand, he simply grunted in defeat, crawling up to curl against his master in a comforting fashion as said master bled out.

Finally, after what seemed like hours though in reality would have been only a few minutes, the blood texture changed. Healthy red blood cells transformed from the black sticky substance that was pouring from the wound. Working quickly to clean the area and ensure all trace of infection were vanished, Akihana began the careful process of stitching not just the original would but the small incisions she had made too. Her nimble fingers working quickly to cover his flesh before healing the skin over it with medical ninjutsu so they wouldn't tear.

"He should be fine now," she whispered, reaching to check his pulse once again to reassure herself that he would indeed be fine. The blood was substituted and generated, the wound was cleaned and stitched, the infection taken care of, his immune system would be back on track soon enough... So why wasn't he waking up?

"Takeo," she called out, tapping his shoulders gently as she tried to get him to open his eyes. "Takeo you have to try and listen to me. If you can hear me... Blink, or breathe out a little harder. Sweetie I need a sign that you can hear me," she pleaded, trying to stave off the panic she knew was slowly taking over her voice. When no response came, the blonde wasted no time. He had all the physical properties needed to live, but his life was waning, his soul, his very essence was thinning.

Pig let out a snort of surprise at what happened next, Akihana began to glow a soft gold where she sat, the white haired young man's head cradled carefully in her lap. As the light began to spread to Takeo and then Pig who was curled up against his master's fee, a golden barrier stretched all around the trio. Akouy still chose to watch safely from the distance as the bright gold barrier wrapped around the three on the ground, filling the enclosed space with the purest form of nature energy accessible in the world. Focusing her own chakra, Akihana directed the nature energy into her patient, forcing it through his skin to his very core to jump start his system once more. He was far gone, but not far enough.

Her own heartbeat jumped the same time his did, the barrier faltering around the three and excess nature energy retreating back to Akihana, one of the few people in the world who could safely contain it. Even before he opened his eyes, the relief was evident in her own golden gaze. "He's okay," she announced, hands falling to her side in exhaustion as he finally, finally opened his eyes.

"Hi," she greeted back, tears swimming in her in her eyes and watery smile on her tired face. The young woman had no idea if he knew how close to death he'd been but she hoped if he didn't, he never found out. "You're okay now," she added as continuous waves of relief flooded her and Pig. Lowering her head, the kunoichi greened before lightly dropping a kiss to his forehead. "You frightened Pig and I quite a bit," she confessed, wiping the tears from her eyes. There was no reason to cry now, he was safe.

"How did you get like this? Who hurt you?" she asked. Now that he was okay, she could ask her questions. "And don't try to move just yet, stay put a few minutes, your body will feel tender for a bit and you might have a spell of dizziness if you try to sit up or stand up too fast."

The color on his face caused even more alarm in Akihana, making her touch a hand to his skin to check for fever. Indeed he was warm, but not warm enough to warrant distress. Perhaps she was just worried given her recent brush with death. As he tried to get up against all her warnings, the young woman had no chose but to wait it out. The pride did come before the fall, as they said. And sure enough, he white haired male fell, right back into her lap, making her smile despite the situation.

When would he ever learn to listen? Probably never. But then again, she wouldn't have him be any other way then he already was. Which - for now - was alive and well, for the most part.

The smile didn't remain long though as he admitted that he couldn't work with Denkiteki. "Den did that to you?" she asked, ignoring his concern for her safety at the moment. There would be time to tell him everything later, hopefully in private and away from prying eyes and ears. The blonde couldn't believe Den - the Den she knew - wouldn't hurt someone this badly. Sure he was a ninja, a supremely powerful one but Takeo's bloodstream had been polluted with infection and anomalies. If Den was trying to kill the wanderer, he was going about it in the slowest, most painful way possible, not something she could ever believe of her close friend.

"Hang on a minute," she cautioned, glancing up at Akuoy who still stood far enough to see them but not overhear the conversation exchanged between the two. Nodding his way, the kunoichi turned her golden eyes to Takeo once more. "Don't be scared, this might feel disorienting for two seconds," she warned before closing her eyes in concentration. No sooner had the world blinked out from behind her gaze, so did Akihana and Takeo. The two ninja vanished where they were, only a small sparkle of light shimmering in their place for a second before that too melted underneath the dreary grey sky.

When they reformed next, they were in Akihana's living room, on a plush white rug now muddy from Takeo and the blonde's clothes. They reformed in the same position with the male's head in her lap but it was immediately clear that they were in a different place. Gently lifting his head, the kunoichi moved from underneath him before she gave him a hand, helping him up to the sofa and trailing mud on that bit of furniture too.

"There, just sit back and relax, and you'll feel better in a few minutes. Then we can talk." Despite hearing that he had tried to kill Den, and that he had almost died himself in the process, Akihana was glad he was here. Takeo may have arrived unconventionally into the village - to say the least - but he had arrived a familiar face, one Akihana had longed for in the midst of all that was happening to her. Perhaps this was a good omen.

"I'll go get you some food," she offered, remembering he had mentioned being hungry. The medic rose to her feet, making her way to the kitchen. There was nothing else ready so she simply settled for putting together some ham and cheese sandwiches, Pig nosing around in her kitchen beside her, his snout already investigating the content of her fridge. Akihana let the creature explore. He probably hadn't had a good meal in a while.

Piling the half a dozen sandwiches on a platter and fetching a jug of apple cider to go with them, the medic made her way back to the living room where Takeo sat. "There we go," she announced, placing both items in front of him before going back for a glass. "I hope you don't mind ham, eggs and cheese."

A hearty snort came from the kitchen, indicting that Pig too had found his meal.

The kunoichi may not have known who had done this to Takeo, but at least he had admitted it wasn't Den. Akihana had known Den would never stoop so low but the reassurance was nice nonetheless. When she returned with the glass, Takeo was already halfway through the sandwiches, enjoying them greatly. She wondered when the male had eaten last. She also wondered hat to make for dinner if he decided to stay.

"I don't live here..." she tried, before shaking her head and correcting herself. "Well i suppose I do, it's a bit of a long story." As she contemplated telling him, she realized how long it actually was. the last two months seem to stretch to two years and Akihana had no clue where to begin. So she began where he did.

"No, of course I didn't kill him, you know I would never do that," she answered, golden eyebrow raised in approval a the idea of killing. "I came here to help the people of my village. The last thing they need is one murderer replacing another." It was true, aside from the fact that she could never kill someone Maku had loved so dearly, it would have been counter productive. All the killings in the past had made one thing clear to Akihana. Death was not the way to go.

"And as you cna see, he returned he courtesy and did me no harm either," she continued, the hesitance clear in her voice. While it was true no physical harm had come to her, emotionally she was more batched than she would care to admit to her friend. He was technically in recovery, and she didn't want anything to interrupt that. "He gave me a nice place to saty, he did not harm my guards.. And he proposed a rather unique solution to both our problems." Closing her eyes briefly to muster the courage needed to repeat the words out loud, she finally said:

"He proposed I act in the best interest of the citizens and Kumo and accept his hand in mariage. The wedding happens in there weeks." The words drove a deep shudder through her narrow frame though Akihana tried to put on a brave face. "You made it just in time for the festivities."

A small amount of panic spiked up inside the kunoichi as Takeo began to choke. It seemed the more she tried to keep him alive, the more ways he subconsciously found to defy all her efforts. First the bleeding, then the near fever, then the disorientation and now choking on his food. If any shinobi had a death wish, it was the white haired young male sitting on her sofa. At this rate, the blonde would be afraid to let him stand up unaided in case he decided to trip and fall, breaking several important bones in the process.

Still, she could understand his surprise. Even as his will to live on won over his rebellious urge to perish from this world, she could see why he reacted the way he did. he had arrived in Kumo half dead and delirious, of course he had not noticed the significant changes all over the village. Namely there were no longer people on pikes. They had either been buried or healed or returned to their families. There were few citizens out in the fields of blood and gore and excrement too, the majority of them pardoned. Takeo certainly hadn't been conscious long enough to witness the splash of color that seemed to have somehow found its way into the dark and dreary atmosphere of kumogakure, and she didn't blame him for that one bit.

But the truth was, a stray sliver of light had indeed entered the Raikage's dark domain, and it was a stubborn ray of gold at that, one that refused to be extinguished.

"I was left with little options," she confessed once he had drunk the entirely of the cider straight from the jug. It was a mark of how grave the discussion at hand was that she didn't chide him on his table manners. "When someone tells you that your actions can result in the saving of hundreds of thousands of lives, don't you owe it to those lives to do it? Don't you owe it to yourself?" The words were meant to sound brave, as if she had made her peace with the deal struck with Youka. And yet they came out feeble because it had been so long since she'd seen a friendly face and her facade was slowly cracking.

"I said I would do anything... This falls under the "anything" I said I'd do..." Golden lashes lowered, Akihana couldn't look straight at Takeo as she said all this, afraid that his face would be the breaking point and all the fear and sorrow she'd been cultivating inside her would break loose. "You once said if we wanted to save something, we'd do anything... I'm doing everything i can, and hoping it will be enough."
