Eternity opened her eyes and only saw a glimpse of a moving shadow before she was hoisted up and thrown into the corner of the room she’d been sleeping in. She could hardly see anything in the dead of night but she could tell that several people had barged into the room and were doing something to the guy she’d been sleeping next to. Two of the intruders held down the man in bed while another kept the man silent with a very pointy dagger.

“Yes, it’s him. Alright, let’s get going. Make sure his mouth stays shut or there’ll be hell to pay.”

Eternity heard the muffled yells of the man she’d just slept with and worried for her own fate. She hoped they would just leave. If only she would be so lucky.

“What about the girl?” asked one of the intruders before they left the room with the important man held over his shoulder. This question prompted one of them to walk up to Eternity and drag her by the hair and put her face to the moonlight.

“She’s not on the list.”

“Then get rid of her before she makes noise.”

As if Eternity could even manage to scream. She was too terrified to even breath let alone jeopardize her life with a shout.

“No! you remember what captain said, we’re not supposed to hurt innocents. This is a ransom not a killing.”

“But she’s obviously important to this target if she was in bed with him. Maybe she’s from an important family. Could be worth some money.”

“Or maybe she’s a whore and worth nothing.”

“Just bring her. Make sure she keeps quiet though.”

Eternity didn’t put up much of a fight as she was bound in ropes and a chunk of cloth was stuffed in her mouth. She was then hauled off where she’d be put on a getaway wagon. She was one of what had to be dozens of people that had been captured. All of them were bound just like she was. This must have been some well planned operation because there was no sign of law enforcement at all.

A handful more people were tossed into the wagon and then the vehicle was set in motion. It moved quickly throughout the empty streets and then ultimately out of the town entirely. Eternity fell asleep after a few hours when it was clear that they weren’t getting to their destination any time soon.

Eternity was ultimately woken up by someone who hoisted her up and tossed her roughly onto the ground. It was daylight now and there was no sign of any sort of town at all. They were on a beach in the middle of nowhere. There were a handful of small boats on the beach and off in the distance Eternity could see a massive ship.

“Where are you taking us? What’s this all about?” shouted someone who managed to remove their gag.

“Shaddap!” shouted a captor followed by a very loud cracking sound. No doubt he’d broken something when he hit the captive with his weapon. Everyone got the message after that and nobody made a peep aside from the occasional pained groan. Everyone was then loaded up onto one of the various small boats and then the pirates rowed them all the way to the big ship off the shore. .

Once on the ship all the prisoners were tied on the deck and there they waited for something to happen. They didn’t have to wait long before the captain came out to speak with them. He was a very bulky man who stood at least seven feet tall and had a massive halberd strapped to his back. He wore an eyepatch on one eye and had a wooden peg in place of one of his legs. He very much looked the part of a pirate captain. Now that there was enough sunlight Eternity could see that the people that had captured her also looked like pirates, many with missing fingers or massive scars on their bodies and faces.

The captain cleared his throat and said in a loud, booming voice, “I’m sure you’re all wondering why you’re here. You’re all being held for ransom. Don’t worry, your lives are not in danger unless we don’t get our payment in which case your lives are very much in danger. Not to worry, most of you should be worth a lot of money, going off of our intel at least. Best case, you’re all out of here within the day. Worst case, you’re all dead by this time tomorrow. Alright, have fun you all!”

It was at this point that Eternity remembered that she could telepathically communicate with her twin living clone, Snow. She called out to Snow and explained what had happened. Eternity wished she’d had the sense to call for help earlier, but she’d been too distraught to think properly. Everything now hinged on Snow getting help.

Snow went to the local missions office and explained what had happened and that they needed to rescue everyone or they’d die within a day. Snow volunteered to help, but she knew she couldn’t do it on her own.

Pirates! Empty Re: Pirates!

Wed Aug 03, 2022 12:11 pm
The commotion of the pirate raid in the night had not gone unnoticed, and when the girl named Snow arrived at the mission center for the small coastal village- which was really more of a guard station- she would find it bustling with activity. People in armor and serious expressions moved about the space with purpose with a few people in the center calmly directing things and seeing to matters brought to his attention. The area was crowded with concerned citizens, all of whom seemed to have been affected by the actions of the pirates from the night before; from missing parents to damaged property, there was no shortage of grievances being brought to the attention of the local militia who were struggling to both put a plan into action and addressing the growing crowd of citizens that Snow had to weave through in order to see about her friend. 

Amidst the chaos, Snow would recognize a man who shoulders his way to the front desk from the work area on the other side of the counter, putting a heavy box of documents in front of the guy that seemed to be in charge. Kaidu, the local that had helped them not but a few days before, was seemingly a part of whatever was going on. "Here," he started to the man in the center wearing a dark blue cap that slumped down on one side and poked straight up on the other. "We got the notes as needed, Sada."

The man in the cap turned to regard Kaidu and then the box of documents he had brought along. "Good! This is a start, we just have to make sure the handoff starts off looking convincing in order to give your man enough time to get to the Captain. Let's hope he's as good as you said he is." Sada responded, beginning to pick up the documents from the box and usher them off to several other waiting people, who took them to a station and got to work.

Kaidu wore an unenthusiastic expression, as though he still wasn't totally certain about all of this before he would spot Snow. His expression shifted, brightening some and offering her a wave. "Hey there! Miss! I remember you, from the beach with the shark, right?" Kaidu paused, giving Snow enough time to explain her own situation, his expression flickering some as it was revealed that Eternity had also been taken. "I'm sorry to hear about your friend, but don't you worry! We have a plan to get everyone back if you'd like to help. We even have a man on the inside."

~~~

"So, this is the guy, huh?" Joski thought to himself, already beginning to feel himself sweat from the uncomfortable get-up he had put himself in so that he might blend in with the crew. It had started the night before when Joski was roused from his distant hut in the woods to the sound of shouts and racket amid the small town. It was the torches that had really given it away. Nothing good ever came from people storming a village with torches, at least not in his very limited experience with such. Stealing away in the secret of the night, Joski managed to follow a pair of what he would discover to be pirates along the road, spying from the distance as people were tossed into a wagon before the whole band moved along. He kept a distance and kept a careful count. Two. Six. Ten. A dozen. Nearly two dozen. Way too many for him to try and tackle along, but he couldn't allow them to get away now that he had an opportunity.

He had only barely managed to drop a note to a local friend, Kaidu, on his way through the town as he stalked the band of thugs. A note that, in brief, detailed a plan concerned a fake handoff with whatever demands they make and to bring some muscle on the way. Joski would deal with the captain, and what is a crew without their leader? Following them until the sun began to peek over the distant horizon, Joski would finally find an opportunity to acquire a uniform when one of the pirates wandered from the camp in order to relieve himself. Dispatching the man was an easy process, as a heavy rock to the back of the head often yielded favorable results and required very little skill so long as one could make themselves stealthy enough. Donning the disguise, it was a simple matter for Joski to fall back into line and put on a show that he was indeed one of the crew. In the back of his mind, he still felt bad for having hit that guy with the hilt of a borrowed saber, but it had put aside any doubts that Joski wasn't one of them.

Now he stood with the crew aboard their ship, surrounding their captives until the Captain had come out to speak with them. This was him. This was the target of opportunity. But he couldn't move just yet. Not only was he still significantly outnumbers, but he had to give the mainland time to rally a crew brave enough to come tussle with some pirates while he parlayed with the Captain, or else this rescue attempt was going to be cut real short, real quick. "You three!" The captain shouted, motioning to Joski and two of the other pirate crew. "Take these sorry sort bellow deck and back them comfortable in the brig for the time bein'. And remember! We need 'em in good shape to get a payday, so don't play too rough with 'em." A comment that garnered a round of chuckling from the crew.

"Aye!" Joski and the others would call in unison before one of the other two would speak. "You heard the captain! On y'er feet, landlubbers!" There was a shuffling of activity and murmurs of uncertainty as the captives were roused from their seat and shepherded down into the lower parts of the deck with Joski bringing up the very back. Below deck was illuminated only by the rays of the sun coming through port windows, and steadily the crowd was herded into a brig: a rather makeshift cell that had wrought iron bars separating one of the decks with an iron door offering egress to and from. 

Joski stood by the door, ushering people inside with a firm hand until he grasped Eternity's shoulder, his eyes flaring in recognition. "It's her, that girl from the beach." Disguised as he was, the delay was enough to draw the attention of the others, who jeered and elbowed Joski in the side.

"What, you want that one for yourself? Don't blame ye', I was eyeballing her as well," one of the goons spoke up.

Joski froze for a moment, knowing that responding was likely going to give him away, so instead, he shifted his hand from Eternity to the door, making as though to close it before throwing the heavy iron door wide, smashing directly into the goon's face and knocking him out cold, but handily alerting the third one that something was amiss.

"H-hey! What the hells gotten-" Before the third could finish his cry, there was a sturdy thud as the boot of Joski landed right between his legs, causing the pirate to exhale the entirety of his air supply and double over, putting him in the perfect place for a square punch to land across his jaw, sending him to the ground. Shaking out his hand, Joski grimaced some. He never really had been much of a direct fighter but a one-two combo usually worked pretty well, even if he left his knuckles sore.

Turning back to the group of captives, he pulled down the bandana that had been serving as a mask for the lower half of his face, revealing himself to those that now likely gawked at the action. "Hey folks," he spoke, his voice de-pirated now that he had dropped the facade. "Don't worry, help is coming from the mainland." His eyes swept back to Eternity, looking her over in what could only be described as her pajamas. Made sense, considering everyone here had been stolen away in the middle of the night, many of them left in very little clothing out here though thankfully enough to maintain some semblance of dignity. "I know you. You and that other girl from the beach, you're...."

Pirates! Empty Re: Pirates!

Sat Aug 06, 2022 8:08 pm
(Eternity is the one who got captured, Snow is the one in town. I think ya just did a typo lol)



Snow’s post (feel free to skip lol)


Snow was curious as to who the secret agent would be. She was surprised that someone could have infiltrated the pirates already. She had to guess that they had spotted the pirates in action and had decided to blend in with them instead of trying to stop the abduction then and there. Snow wondered if such a high risk high reward plan would pay off unless the one in disguise was some kind of badass motherfucker.


The town wasted little time in assembling a task force to go help with the rescue effort. There were a handful of ships that were quickly fetched and a team of local guard forces along with a handful of shinobi that would go try to help. Most of their eggs were in one basket with the undercover person but if that plan failed then perhaps they could rescue at least some of the rich people. Snow didn’t know why they didn’t just pay the ransom but then again she didn’t understand politics. She supposed it was a bad look if people figured out they could safely make a quick buck by kidnapping a bunch of people. 


Snow had a general idea of where her twin living clone was based on the vague directions that Eternity relayed her and using that information they were able to set an initial course. The boats were really not all that impressive. They were just basic wooden boats and many of then were in disrepair. As they sailed off into the ocean the shinobi helped patch up the boats and developed a plan to keep the boats hidden. Some kind of mist jutsu was used in conjunction with some kind of mirage jutsu which would keep the boats hidden unless the pirates had an astute lookout with some sort of sensory capability. Also, they would be propelled along with the help of water jutsu. 


While they waited to arrive at the ship the team talked about strategy. They were betting on the prisoners being able to escape without the guards noticing but there was always the chance that this would all break out into a massive brawl. In that case, they had a priority list of who the most important people to save were. Eternity wasn’t even on the list so Snow decided she was going to have to save her herself. Why? Because she felt like she was supposed to save her kin. Truth be told nothing of value would really be lost of Eternity bit the dust because Madara would just make another living clone. It was kind of fucked up but Snow didn’t want to think about how disposable she and her twin living clone were. She still didn’t know what kind of person Madara was. She seemed nice enough and didn’t ask too much of them. She seemed to lack any ability to exert control over them so it made sense to have a collaborative attitude towards things.

Eternity’s post (relevant)


The most boring part of being captured was waiting around for something to happen. Eternity remembered how long that trip had been and really didn’t think that anyone would be coming to their rescue anytime soon. Plus, she figured there was a realistic chance that the pirates would just kill them all even if they got their money. It made the unfomfortableness of being tied down seem a lot less bad than it was. There were no bathroom breaks, no snacks, just sitting there in the heat. Things started to smell understandably bad very quickly. 


Some time passed and there were orders to move the prisoners below deck. Eternity was happy since it meant she could stretch her legs and maybe have access to a bucket. She focused her mind and touched her mind with Snow’s. “Hey, we’re being moved below deck. How far are you? Did you even manage to get help?”


Snow responded, after several minutes, “it sounds like they’re already on it. They claim to have a man on the inside. Me and a handful of others are not too far away. We’re sailing and are staying hidden in a mist jutsu. All you guys have to do is get off the ship without dying and we’ll be able to get away.”


Eternity responded, “so simple right? I’ll just untie myself and jump off the ship and hope I don’t die in the process.” 


Snow exasperatedly responded, “hey it’s that or die. Figure something out! Try to find out who the good guy is on the ship.” 


Eternity hated this plan but she would have to work with it, or die like her twin suggested. She looked around and couldn’t really spot anyone that looked “good”. Perhaps her knight in shining armor was in disguise? Luckily she didn’t have to wait long for him to reveal himself. She almost didn’t even see what happened before pirates started dropping left and right. Then Joski revealed his face and Eternity instantly recognized him as the brave one who drew the shark away during the attack not too long ago.


Eternity felt a lot safer with this guy watching over them. She said, “hey! You’re the guy who took helped care of the shark right? Anyways, I got a telepathic message saying that boats are coming to help us but we have to get off the ship on our own. I’m not sure what you had in mind, but I’m guessing we have to sneak off unelss you want to take down all the pirates on your own. I’m not sure I’ll be much help since I haven’t learned any useful jutsu yet. Maybe we could blow a hole in the side of the ship and go out that way?” 


“Hey that sounds like a good plan,” chimed in a few of the other captives. “We just need to make sure the other pirates don’t catch wind of the plan before we’re off the boat.” 


Eternity picked up a dagger and used it to cut off her ropes and then went around freeing everyone else as the plan was developed further. Though, the plan would ultimately be up to Joski to approve since he was the only one with any meaningful firepower. 


Snow and a handful of other shinobi were not too far away. The boats they sailed on were propelled by water jutsu so they were approaching quickly. They probably had an hour at most before getting to the pirate ship, though they would probably be detected sooner than that unless the pirates were distracted. A ball of mist could only remain inconspicuous for so long.

Pirates! Empty Re: Pirates!

Wed Aug 10, 2022 12:23 am
A handful of minor blessings graced Joski as the gaggle of prisoners all seemed to be pretty well collected for a bunch of folks that had been stolen away in the middle of the night and made to sit aboard a ship against their will under threat of death. It could have simply been that the lot of them were too tired to be emotionally distraught, but Joski was quietly happy that he didn't have to console anyone too greatly; everyone seemed to be on board with the idea of escape, and no one seemed to be crying themselves senseless in the corner due to their predicament, so everything was looking pretty positive for the first half of his plan. What that meant now, however, was that he needed to keep everyone calm and organized. Thankfully, it seems a plan was already forming amidst the survivors. Nodding along, Joski would speak up when the rest of them had finished before beginning to announce what the next step would be. "Good, the lot of you stay down here. Find anything big and heavy and put it in the walkway. We'll block the pirates out until the help from the mainland arrives...which will hopefully not be long from now."

Beginning to direct people as they moved, Joski would move back into the deck they had come from, moving between rows of canons that had been pulled in and the hatches closed up until he reached the stairs and the hatch leading up. Shredding part of the sleeve of the costume he had been wearing as a disguise and tied the latch leading up to the top step, creating a flimsy lock that would keep any wandering guards from coming down while everyone else began to pile things into the walkway, creating a barrier that the pirates would have a hell of a time dismantling from their side. Crawling over what had been put in place, Joski sought out Eternity as she assisted with the process, putting a hand on her shoulder to get her attention. "Alright, you and your friend-sister-person saved my skin when it came to that shark, so I'm going to depend on you once more. I'm going to go try and deal with the Captain. If nothing else, it will buy you guys more time. When the boat from the mainland arrives, pop open one of these port hatches-" he paused, pointing out the ports that would normally be opened in order to allow the canons to fire. "And get everyone off the ship. Once everyone is off, just put one of these canons pointed down into the deck and fire it off. We'll sink the ship, and the blast will tell me everyone is safe so I can also make my way off."

Joski took a moment to let the plan sink in and for Eternity to ask any questions she might have of what was expected before the traveler would check his gear once more. He had lifted a saber from one of the pirates. It wasn't exactly his typical style of weapon given he didn't really know how to use it well, but hell, it's sharp. Offering it forward, he would put the hilt of the weapon to Eternity. "Here. Just in case they need to get through and you need to defend yourself. I'll be counting on you to get everyone out of here, so keep them and yourself safe, yeah?" He said, offering a reassuring smile as he relinquished the weapon. Moving over to the hatch that was facing away from the land in the distance, Joski would gather chakra at the bottom of his feet and begin to quietly creep up the side of the ship until he could peek over the side of the deck and begin to get an idea of what had been going on above deck. Things seem still. The Captain had retreated into his quarters.

A mist began to filter onto the deck and around the ship, drawing some curious sounds and murmurs from the crew as they took note of something strange going on. This must be their help coming in! "I don't like this." One pirate would say. "Go down below deck and make sure they didn'a start a fire or sommat," another would complain. Small bickering would break out, which would give Joski plenty of time to scoot back to the open port and look back to Eternity.

"Guards are coming. Hold them off. I think our help is almost here. I'm going for the Captain." This time, Joski didn't give Eternity time to protest. Instead, he continued his focus on his chakra and would make his way down the side of the ship, careful to avoid drawing attention from the deck and made his way around the back to where he knew there were windows that would allow him direct access into the captain's quarters, vanishing from sight.

Pirates! Empty Re: Pirates!

Thu Aug 11, 2022 3:41 pm
Snow:

Over at the small fleet of rescue ships, Snow sat around watching the more experienced people work. It was mostly boring after the initial high wore off. People went around getting their gear ready and sharpening weapons. A crafter came along and had some special coating for weapons that he’d brought along. “Just dunk the weapons in that shit and fuse it with the equipment over there. I have plenty to go around” he admitted. The shinobi around him nodded.

Snow didn’t doubt him but she was curious as to how it all worked. She watched people wash off their weapons and took their sweet time doing it too. She could tell that the man prided himself in his special formula and he still wasn’t acting nervous at all. If they just did what he told them to then he would get some good data about his new formula. There were other interesting folk on the ships, mostly those who Snow couldn’t interact with since there was no good way of moving between ships.

The trip remained uneventful for quite some time until they neared the pirate ship. Once they saw it in the distance, that’s when things got hairy. There was a scouting boat for the pirates who was also shrouded in some cloaking jutsu. It spotted the mist at a distance and decided to investigate. In the span of about two seconds the scouting ship went from seeing nothing to being right in the middle of the rescue fleet. The scouting ship unexpectedly smashed into one of the rescue ships and after that, chaos ensued. Wooden debris flew everywhere and there was a whole lot of noise. Perhaps so much noise that the main pirate ship would catch wind that something was off. However, for them to notice it would probably require the scouts to send back some sort of message which would be impossible unless they got away.

The question was, could the scouts find enough time to send back a message? Doing so served to be quite the challenge. There were three scouts aboard the ship and they had to contend with the entire rescue forces. It didn’t take long for two of the scouts to die and the third only survived by sheer luck. They kept him alive but made sure he couldn’t perform handseals. He was put on the same boat as Snow, which was very unnerving because he always looked like he had a plan to escape. Snow was put in charge of watching him with a keen eye.

The debris of the crash would be visible from the pirate ship even though the remaining rescue ships would be shrouded. The lookout from the ship would undoubtedly know that something was up and sound an alarm.

---

Eternity:

Things moved fairly quickly for Eternity and the rest of the captives as they blocked off the pirates. Joski worked with the plan and built on top of it which was a sign that he was a good leader. It was fortunate that the group as a whole was ready to just follow orders and get the hell out of there. Everyone knew it was only a matter of time before their escape attempt was discovered and they were in too deep to risk failure. The unfortunate news was that most of these people were on the older side. Most of the captives were retirement age which meant that the amount of labor was going to be spread pretty thin among a small handful of people who were the right age to help.

Unlike Joski, Eternity was no great leader. Hell, she was barely a shinobi, having been spawned into existence just weeks ago. But Joski seemed to have faith in her, perhaps purely out of necessity, so she would do her best. All Eternity could manage to say to Joski was “I’ll do my best.” To be honest she wasn’t paying full attention because she was more focused on what Snow was telling her. Something about getting caught by pirate scouts or something like that. Eternity told Joski “oh, by the way, the pirates might know something’s up. It sounds like the rescue team ran into some trouble but they’re still on their way. Sorry I didn’t tell you sooner, I literally just found out.” She took the sword from Joski and gave him a reassuring nod then turned to carry out the plan.

Everyone huddled up next to the escape and waited for the rescue team to show up. When they did, the civilians escaped and Eternity was left to point the cannon towards the deck. She lit the cannon and then jumped out of the ship and into the water below. Now all that was left was for them to figure out if they would escape without getting attacked. Oh, and whether Joski was alive or not.

Wed Aug 17, 2022 8:47 am
Having moved along the side of the ship, it had been easy for Joski to move around behind the boat without much notice, his chakra keeping him firmly attached to the ship until he was able to creep up the back of the ship to the large bay windows that looked back across the ocean and offered only a minor barrier between the open sea and the Captain's quarters. Keeping low, Joski would spy through the glass to the hulking figure of the captain as the man adjusted some manner of markers on a large sheet of parchment unrolled to rest over the length of a long, wooden desk. "Just as I figured," Joski would mentally chide, sliding down back below the window for a moment. Around him, the mist began to get thick and difficult to see through, indicating that there was likely not much time before the rescue boat was meant to arrive. Just as his thoughts began to drift back to the hostages below deck, he would begin to hear commotion from the upper levels on the other side of the captain's quarters. Confusion. Some exclaimed about the fog while a couple of others called out to others to inform of a blockage having formed in the stairwell leading below. Things were about to kick off, and it was time for Joski to do his part.

Climbing back up the side, Joski would push open a window from the outside, swinging into the sizable cabin and quickly garnering the attention of the Captain, who would look up from his map with a sneer. "What in the seven blue hells-? What do ye' think you're doin' climbin' all over my ship like some kind of...kind of...animal that climbs all over ships?!" Red in the face, Joski could tell that the interrupting was most unwelcome. Stepping in from the window, Joski inadvertently enjoyed some cinematic effect of mist trickling in behind him as his feet made solid contact with the floor. The captain, not one to be so easily cowed by the appearance of a scrawny teen who only just past the age of manhood, would stand tall and puff out his chest, drawing a blade that looked like it could cleave apart the table he just stood from with little issue.

"Me? I'm no one. Just a guy on vacation. A vacation that you and your crew are interrupting. So I'm here to crash the party." Zippy as Joski felt like his retort was, this whole thing had started out as an annoyance and had grown into a serious crime of kidnapping, extortion, and all-around being a jerk. Flippant as he was, Joski never took kindly to behavior that could get one tied to a name like "bandit", and what is a pirate if not a bandit with a boat?

~~~

As the crew struggled to unblock the stairs, the hostages were making an exit through the port. An exit that would inevitably be noticed by one of the deck hands who hadn't been caught up by the others and instead had been busy inspecting the fog. "Hey! They are here! Escapees, Escapees!" He called, drawing a blade from his belt, not unlike the one that had been handed over to Eternity. Other pirates appeared on the side of the ship and likewise began to address the issue before a tremendous explosion rocked the boat and called attention elsewhere. The canon had fired beneath the deck and the ship lurched to one side, dumping those that had been on the rail into the water around the rescue boats.

All hell broke loose as the ship fought to correct itself only to begin teetering and leaning again. Just as it seemed some of the pirates were going to jump into the rescue boats, the doors to the Captain's cabin blew open as a white orb shot from the doorway and into the midst of the deck before contracting and expanding in a violet glow that was dampened by the mist that now surrounded the ship. The sound of wood splintering could be heard even from the rescue boats as they began to drift away from the ship that began to lean in such a way that said it wouldn't be above water much longer.

There was a slight shift in the air as Joski abruptly appeared just above the boat that Eternity and Snow had been in, landing with a soft thud and a quiet "oof". The boy looked like he had caught every branch on a mid-way fall from a tree but didn't appear to have any life-threatening injuries. Still, Joski sighed as he landed in the boat, "Ugh...I think that is enough playing hero for a while..." he mumbled, looking up to the others in the boat and seeing Snow and Eternity, offering them both a smile before laying his head back. "Well, seems like we did it again. We have to stop meeting like this, you know." He said, lifting his head to look at the two girls. "My name is Jojo, by the way."

Eternity nodded as she folded her arms across her breasts to better hide them from view. “This is our first week doing missions and it’s turning out to be quite the life.”

Snow giggled since she was never in any real danger. “Yeah, we did it! Maybe we can all go eat some food after this!”

Eternity said, “might not be a bad idea after I can get a change of clothes. Nice to formally meet you Jojo. I’m Eternity, and this is Snow,” she said. Although they were identical their expressions and clothing were of completely different styles.

Eternity wouldn’t have thought with a mission like this that the enemies would be so very little prepared, and their influence would no longer be of any significance. She was already ridding her hands of them, because even if she was something normally constituted, someone upright and honest. She would soon become the type of shinobi who liked to fight, and to knock down her enemies, to beat them, to shed the blood of those who dare, of those who must die. Not because she enjoyed killing, but because it was necessary... So here she come to the strategic place she had set for herself, and put herself at the edge of the boat, to scrutinize this pirate ship where these she’d just been held captive. As expected, she had no gear on, she was still in her pajamas and they’d been torn considerably since the morning. She wished she could summon a set of clothes for the sake of her dignity. It wasn’t every day that you got kidnapped after all.

She wished it had been a relatively normal mission, or something like that. And since she didn't belong to any "group" at the time within Hoshigakure, she was going to take advantage of this to help build her resume. At the same time she wondered whether she ever wanted to go back to that village. She was weighing her options, she wondered if it would be worth it to pass herself off as a person who was looking for a place to sleep and just travel the world without any care about villages and all that nonsense.

This beach town, even without a kage, remained a decent place, and maybe, as a simple visitor, she would be able to enter the very heart of her she was preparing her strategy. She hadn't forgotten that some of them, with their special ways, were outside of any village’s jurisdiction. She debated making a henge of one of them, to be able to return easily.

Eternity relayed some of her thoughts to Snow who said “Suits me. I agree though. You should probably keep it down. If I was the altruistic type someone might get rid of you without hesitation. Lucky for you, I think Madara could care less.” She drank some water. She didn’t want to have to argue with Eternity.  Freedom? Maybe she would have had the patience to put up with low level criminals. But to abandon the village so soon? She was much too used to dealing with people who didn’t know when to shut up. Snow didn’t know if she wanted to deal with criminals personally yet.

Snow was much more aloof with her tentative life plan. She was fine just chilling and going with the flow for now. She daydreamed about getting a big bird summon and just flying around all day. She wondered just how much longer this boat ride would take because she really wanted to go back to sleep. She tried just leaning against the side of the ship and sleeping but it was no use. The constant moves of the boat against the water made her almost sick to her stomach. It was clearly not designed to be carrying this many passengers to begin with.
