Travel into Forge country was not easy as Asura kept to the shadows-- but it helped that the overcast weather kept him relatively in the shade. He was alone in this instance but he was making progress.

Forge country was a mountainous, forested region with several mines that littered the land. Some were in use, others were abandoned-- making Asura feel an odd nostalgia for him in IWA. He remembered the times he would explore the caves when he was younger, seeking adventures in the dark there even though half of them were just his imagination. He wanted to just escape from that area.

Looking back, much of him has changed since becoming a rogue ninja. He felt guilty about what happened but less burdened.

"So this is where you are!" a voice shouted.

Startled, Asura spun around. He drew his tiger claws-- but soon stopped as he saw him. The white-eyed, muscular bastard with the nodatchi at his hip. Unless it was someone with a disguise as him, he certainly was just as annoying as before.

"What are you doing here?" Asura asked the man, Ravana.

"Heh, you had to ask?" he said as he looked around, "Heard from Hayabusa's men you were heading to Forge Country. Like I would pass up an opportunity like this. They make the best swords a swordsman could ask for. What about you, kid? Still wet behind the ears with your own toothpics? "

Asura frowned. It was Ravana alright. The same rotten personality...

"You know better than my items are not 'toothpicks," Asura said bitterly. "I work my ass off to make these weapons, and I been improving the ones in the tiger's arsinal with Vulcan."

The man let out a loud bellow. "Hahaha... Relax, kid, I know," he said with a pat of a large hand on his shoulder. "Yeah, you been doing well. Honestly between you and me-- and Vuclan said he would shove a sword down my throat if I told you, but he really is proud of you since you worked with him. He is worry you will put him out of business."

A smile cracked on Asura's face. "Well... despite his temper, he has his own talents too," he said, "Anyway, I have my reasons to coming here too because of creating the weapons and tools. I didn't strike you as someone who was into it."

Ravana smirked as he reached behind him for his goard. He took a swig of the saki in it and let out a satisfied sound. "Well... I appreciate good swords. And anything good for it."

It was at that moment, Asura had something cross his mind as he saw his master. For the longest time, his master was a Taijutsu fanatic and taught him how to fight that way. Never once, had he seen the man resort to his own sword.

As Ravana walked past him, he spoke up, curious. "Hey wait a minute. May I ask you something?" Asura asked politely.

"Hm?" Ravana grunted, glancing behind his shoulder to Asura.

"In all our time together, I don't think I have seen you use your sword ever. Not once," Asura pointed out as he pointed to the nodachi on his back. "How come? Are you as good a swordsman as you are with Taijutsu?"

An amused snort came from the half-naked man. "Pfft. You think i sport this to overcompensate for something? Don't make me laugh!" he said, and turned around. He reached for his sword and unattached it from the holder at his hip. "Of course I am a swordsman-- but as I am sure you know, swordsmanship means little if the warrior isn't strong himself. I just have a joy for both-- and besides," he said as he tapped the sword in its sheath. "My friend here has yet to find a worthy foe worth drawing on. I think I haven't had to use it in 10 years. I shall only draw it against a foe I find worthy enough."

"I see..." Asura commented, amused to hear that. "Well your pretty bad ass as is, I'd like to see you actually use it some time. "

A wide grin showed on his master. "Be careful what you wish for , red," he said and reattached the sword to his hip. "Anyway, i enjoy a good rough-housing with just my bare fists. Nothing gets my blood pumping than a good fight. "

It was then Asura noticed something odd-- a small stain of red from his nose.

He rolled his eyes. "Oh god, tell me you didn't get excited by the idea." he groaned and quickly walked ahead of him. "What the hell goes through your perverted hell."

"Ha! Don't be a hypocrit," Ravana boasted and slapped his student on the back. "I seen how much you enjoyed our training in Dance Country. "

Asura blushed as he quickened his step. "C-can we just focus on getting to our location, or at least let me train a bit on the way," he said as he picked up the pace.

Asura took this time to train as well as move on towards his destination. As he did leaps to build up his strength and his speed--- he didn't know that someone in the distance was watching him. Not a person, but an odd little fox that hid in the trees. It eyed them with interest and a mischevious intent.

Training results: 4 for Dex, 3 for STR

A walk further soon led them to Forge Country's main city. The roads soon became stone-paved walkways of smooth stone, with shops at every side of the street. The entire city felt like one big marketplace as Asura and Ravana walked by. Many shops sold things from weaponry, pottery, jewelery-- any form of craft people could think of. It was a naturally wealthy city from the lookds of it-- with towers and spires going up in every corner. It was easy to be distracted by the size and glitz of this city.

"Heh, looks like my kind of town," Ravana said, and scratched his chin. "WOnder if they got a casino somewhere."

"THey might of, but that is last thing on my mind," Asura replied as he walked through the street, looking at the different variety of weapons.

With his arms behind his head, Ravana looked to his student. "So tell me, Asura," he asked, "What brings you here anyway. You don't go out of your way here or this close to Iwa to just to see new sights."

Asura grumbled a bit at his master's obvious point. "No. I'm here looking for a legendary forging tool. YOu hear of the Inari Forge Hammer?" he asked.

"No, should I?" Ravana asked, not caring in particular.

"Supposedly, its a hammer of a legendary fox spirit-- said to be of great influence over craftsmen who made legendary weapons," he explained, "I figure I could use something like that to improve the weapons in Shinkoku. At the very least, find out secrets from it to better my designs."

Ravana gave a huff as he looked at a passing by woman in a kimono-- more interested in her than Asura's story. "You are in your head too much, kid. Stories, legends, research...." he said.

"Well someone has to work while SOMEONE, whom i won't name, spends too much time in taverns and brothels..." Asura replied without turning to his master.

Ravana's eyes widened, but he laughed it off. The man had no shame for his vices, that was for sure. "I'm just saying don't go following old wives tales, kid. You might be disappointed." he said, "And besides, you focus too much on your brain and not enough on your muscles. I didn't train you so you could go soft."

"I'll train more vigorously after I complete my missions here," he replied and moved on down the street.

It was easy to wrap up in the activities of the big city-- along with the wares this place had. For Asura, a person who had his own admiration of weapons and items like artwork, was easily impressed by the goods sold here. It wasn't just tools either-- but statuary, works of art. He should of considered using his crystal release here to impress some people with his art skills.

Of course the only works of art Ravana took interest was were the women who walked by, and used wind style to catch a glimpse up their kimonos.

Asura just ignored him as he questioned the people at the shops. He asked about the legendary fox hammer-- though many just knew the rumors. Nothing concrete that would point him to an actual destination or truth to the legends.

He spent an hour asking the different shop keepers and blacksmiths from the local forgers in the city. HOwever, the most he learned was the shrine.

"I know one thing," one blacksmith said-- a large guy as big as Ravana who had dark skin, a bald head and scar that blocked one eye  and rippling muscles. "Up north from the city about a half- day's journey from the city, there is a mountain pass that leads to a shrine. I think its the one you want. Its to pay omage to the Masamune-- and said to be respected by fox spirits. Many blacksmiths have gone there for inspiration." he said to Asura. "I don't know of any hammer, but its probably the one you are thinking about."

Asura gave a respectful bow to the smith. "Thank you, sir," he said-- and gave a sum of ryo to him for his information-- but also for a tip for his amazing wears. "Good luck to you."

"You too." he said with a smirk.

Asura walked away from that smith satisfied. He was half tempted to buy something, but he found more satisfied making his own weapons and gear nowadays than anything he could find in a store. It was after all the reason he came here-- to find the secrets of being a master smith.

"Well, at least I found what I needed to know-- then we just gotta find that shrine," Asura commented as he looked at the city lights began to illuminate the spires and streets. "Shouldn't be too much trouble."

A large yawn like a lion's roar came from Ravana as he looked at the now darkening sky. "Yeah, but let's get someplace to rest for the night. I think we both been on our feet enough."

Asura smirked at his master. "You're the last person who I thought would be tired, or you just looking for an excuse to enjoy the night life?" he replied.

"Heh... cocky punk," he replied, "Still you look tired yourself. No sense doing a mission when your exhausted. You walked what, 200 kilometers to get here?"

Asura rolled his eyes. "Alright, alright... lets find a place for the night, but if we end up sharing a room-- don't go thinking to bring 'guests' alright. I'm not going to do you any favors tonight."

"Prude..." the man spat, but just agreed. If he wanted, he could have his fun anywhere. "But fine. I'll do you a favor this time."

********

Thanks to the money Asura had, they were able to afford seperate rooms. They found a decent inn that overlooked the central square, a nice place for them considering they only just arrived. Asura had to admit, he was more tired than he thought but it didn't stop him from being careful. He had a small dinner and went to rest in his room.

However, naturally, Ravana was not one to miss out on exploring the night life. He had checked into his room, but went out to get a drink. Along the main road were plenty of taverns and bars to drink. Still, none caught his attention over the other. He soon went to one of the outdoor ones, moving past the flaps that consealed the outside and sat himself down-- almost taking up the 2 seats beside him by his sheer size he had to crouch down as well.

"Your strongest Sake," Ravana growled-- intimidating the bar tender a bit as he rushed to get his order.

As he waited for his drink-- he caught a colorful glimpse of movement beside him. "This seat taken, sir?" a femine voice spoke.

Ravana turned to find a black haired beauty dressed in a dark blue kimono with sakura blossoms on it. She appeared almost regal with her black hair tied into a braid behind her. Her skin was a light pale with a touch of make up-- and ruby red lips. She sat upon a stool with an arm against the bar-- a single leg revealed slightly from her robes. She also held a small thin pipe-- an elegant form of smoking for such a woman.

Ravana grinned at the presence of a young woman like her. "It is now, sweetheart. How's your evening so far?" he asked.

"Better when I get a drink," she said with a small sigh.

The big man chuckled and raised a hand. "Hey, give the lady your best drink on me." he said with a laugh.

The woman smiled as she saw the offer. "You didn't have to do that. No president on being a gentlemen on my account," she said casually.

"I don't mind showing a lovely lady a good time," Ravana boasted as the bar tender brought them their drinks.

"Trust me, handsome," the woman replied and let out a soft puff of smoke. "I'm no lady."

The obvious show of humor was enjoyable enough as Ravana raised his glass to her and took a sip. She reached over and drank herself.

Between the two people, things progressed as well as any night on the town for Ravana. They shared some drinks, his raw ******** magnetism seemed to overpower any reason for the woman, or rather the booze did a trick as they seemed interested.

That was till, the idea got to them both to go up to the hotel room.

Ravana led her up to his room, fully intending to heat things up. "My, you must be wealthy yourself to afford a nice room," she commented, but clearly feinting interest.

Ravana was far less poised as he was-- having had near a half-dozen saki. Though coherent, his balance did take a dive. He turned around and smiled. "Heh, this is nothing. You should see the digs I have in Shinjoku... But i care little for material things. They are only worth it with pleasant company."

He began to approach-- till he saw her bring out another bottle of Sake. "I fear I don't think I had enough for any plans you might have," she said, offering him the bottle. "Would you pour me one?"

"I like how you think, sweetcheeks." He said as he took her wine and took a sip for himself. He handed back for her to take a sip...

... but she just smirked as she held it.

He waited for her to sip-- but then began to feel light headed. His vision began to blur a bit-- soon seeing three of her and his head dizzy. "You okay, big fellow?" she asked-- her voice echoing from the three of her that swirled in his vision.

"Heh... you should of said you had sisters... ugh..."

Ravana fell backwards and his back hit the back of the bed with a thud. He had passed out from the wine, now completely knocked out from whatever he drank.

The woman, on the other hand, just smirked. "Typical man... you always let your ego be your downfall," she said as she leaned over him. With a mischevious gleam in her eye, she unhooked the latch that attached to his sword and picked it up. Though heavy to most-- she held the nodachi as if it was a feather.

"Oh, this is going to be fun..." she said, her form changing suddenly like mist from a woman, into a humanoid orange fox.

The morning came and Asura had earned a good night sleep. He was dreaming of the jungles of Shinjoku, training and playing with the tigers and laying in the sun with them as he rubbed Boss Byakko's tummy like a kitten's.

It was a good dream... till a loud roar of anger echoed through the entire hotel.

"GHAAAAAA!!! THAT BITCH!!!" Ravana roared, almost rattling the windows.

"GHAAA!" Just like the tigers he dreamt of, Asura jumped from his bead so fast he was almost on the ceiling-- his survival instincts kicking in. At first, he was confused--- till then a sudden force tore down his wall! Someone had punched it and Asura flipped back to bedside. He put on his Tiger Claw weapon and got ready.

However, all he saw was Ravana, heaving deep breaths as he rested a hand against the hole he punched through.

"... I'm not paying for that, you know..." Asura said, the only thing he could think of to tell his master.

The grip on the wall tightened, almost crumbling the plaster to smitherenes. "That whore. That deceptive, smoking, bitch... I'll get her for this!!" he seethed, likely alerting room service to the distress. At the very least, the jump in motion

Asura's brow tigthened as he looked to him. "Who or what are you talking about?" the red-head grumbled.

"My sword!!" he growled, stepping angrily into Asura's room with booming steps. "I had a few drinks with this dark haired woman, and we were just getting in the mood." he explained, "Next thing I knew, I fell asleep-- and woke up to find she was gone and my sword with her!!"

THe red-haired shinobi blinked baffled by the turn of events. "Huh... well, that's a shame." he said as he thought. He then brought a fist to his chin in thought. "Isn't it ironic after all your time screwing women left and right, karma comes along and one figuratively does the exact same to you---"

"SHUT UP, BRAT!" Ravana snapped-- seeing the shadow of a grin show on Asura's face.

He had to admit, he appreciated that Ravana finally had the wool pulled over his eyes. Sure, Asura was growing to like the life of debochery that Ravana would force upon him-- but still he had enough sense to see it was a vice of a shinobi. Now he had been the victim of one.

"Grrrr! When I find that bitch, I'm gonna split her right in two!" he growled, his fists clenched tight.

"Um, by 'split in two', you mean your usual lewd metaphrorical or literal---" Asura replied, but was interrupted again with his shout.

"DON"T GET SMART, ASURA! OR I'll SPLIT YOU IN TWO AND YOU WON"T EVEN KNOW THE DIFFERENCE!" he spat.

The mental image was enough to make Asura cringe as he slowly wiped a hand over his face, cleaning the spit that Ravana had flung with his shouting.

"Alright, alright..." Asura urged, holding up a hand to calm him. "I guess you cannot summon your weapon with a summoning jutsu, right?"

He grumbled, a clear indication of 'no.' Asura shrugged. "Alright, then we do it the old fashon way. Let's start looking for clues and find your sword." Asura calmly walked into his master's room through the hole-- determined to find traces of the person who dooped his master.

The train to find whomever took Ravana's sword, wasn't too hard to look at. But of course, his master was as stublte as a rhino. His rampage that morning covered a good number of clues in debris and rubble. Still he found a big hint-- the scent of the smoke that woman had been smoking, along with an odd musky mix of a perfume something between leaves and metal. What was odd it was a scent that Asura couldn't really identify, as if it was a mix of something else too.

"YOu sure you weren't hallucinating?" Asura asked as he inspected the room.

Ravana had his arms crossed as he glared at his student. "I might of been drunk, but I know a woman when I see one. And she smelled like one too..." he grumbled, "Oh when I get my hands on her...."

"Please, don't..." Asura interrupted, not wanting to hear what sick perversion he would do.

Asura continued his search as he moved a few objects out of the way-- finding the traces of foot prints, but then something odd.

"Huh."

"HM? What?" Ravana asked.

"The tracks seem to dissapear..." Asura said as he inspected the very mild imprints on the floor-- something even regular people wouldn't see. "No... its more like they changed from human to paw prints?"

They looked canine or lupine in some form, but smaller than normal animals. Perhaps the theif transformed into an animal and escaped out of the window of the room. The tracks did end there. "It seems your thief was alot more clever than you anticipated. She left through the window. But looks like she isn't what she appears."

Ravana grunted as he stretched up as Asura reached the window. "Let's go check out the square and surrounding areas. Ill try to find the subtle clues, and you ask around for anyone looking like her, or someone trying to pawn off your sword." he asked.

"WHAT?!" Ravana roared, now gripping his fists once more. "That hussie is gonna pawn the Wailing Dark?! When I find her---"

Asura turned around and gave him a firm stare. "WHat i mean is, while she might be in disguise an object of that size isn't likely easy to hide. Keep an eye out for it and anyone who might have it. Okay?" Asura explained to his master-- and he immediately stopped his rage.

"Oh... that makes sense," he said.

The result of the search didn't turn up much at first. After all, it was Ravana who was the only one who saw her, so it came up to him to identify the target. Besides of a rough description to Asura, along with some 'details' he rather could have done without-- he kept an eye out for it but depended more on the tracks and scent.

Ravana searched on ground level. He was on the edgy side as he searched the streets. He asked people he crossed, often intimidating people and seeking if they saw the woman or his sword. Whenever he saw something close to his sword, he didn't hesitate to jump, grab it and check-- often realizing it was not his.

Asura kept a watch from above. He kept to the rooftops and awnings of the buildings to have a bird's eye view on the situation. He also kept a close alert for that smell. Still, after nearly 2 hours of searching, neither the scent or anything close to the animal that made those prints could be found.

Still, he found something-- disturbances in the path. A flicked piece of rock-- a scruffle of paper. Luckily the weather had not worn the path, but the best he could get to was the end of the city-- near the northern region that led to the mountain path.

Asura soon stopped at the end of the paved path, which soon led to the dirt road of the mountains out of the city. A grunt escaped Asura as he found no sign of the woman, sword or tracks. The trail had had vanished.

"Damnit... " Asura grumbled, folding his arms. He was already tired of running around, and now was out of ideas. "Master is gonna kill me if I can't find his sword."  He looked up to the air, feeling the breeze blow against him.

"Hey!" Asura's eyes widened at the voice and turned around. Behind him was Ravana-- same as before. He still looked upset, but a lot less agitated than before. Perhaps he was able to cool off from his search. Stil, Asura could tell that the man didn't have any luck. Since, of course, he didn't have his sword on him. "Any luck?"

Asura turned and rubbed the back of his neck. "Sadly, no." he replied, "I'd ask you but I can tell you don't have your sword back. Where you go?"

"Asked for a while," Ravana said then looked up at the sky. "Then got a drink after i checked at the bars to see if someone had come in with."

"That explains why you are in a better mood," Asura replied with a roll of his eyes. "Anyway, we will keep looking and..."

"Hold on, kid," Ravana said, holding up a hand. "I did hear someone that someone saw that woman after all-- she did come in, then said they saw her head to the mountains here."

"R-really?" Asura asked, "That's lucky I suppose. Though I have no clue where she went. The trail ends here, and not even sure she will look the same."

Ravana just smirked. "Well we might as well just start looking in the mountains. I bet she had a hideout somewhere or something." he said.

"I guess so..." Asura agreed. Perhaps they could find a trace of their target amoung the path better. with that, Asura went for the woods-- with Ravana behind him on the trail.

The chirp of forest birds and the wind made the atmosphere a lot easier to deal with oppose to the city. It was after all where Asura felt most at home. Still, it seemed a little too convinent how events were flowing since Ravana lost his sword. He became more calmer and despite the loss of his most precious possession, the realization of his lost cool came a bit too soon. He couldn't be so drunk that he would be this mellow.

The mountain path began to move upward slowly but surely, and soon led to a series of stone steps that reached up the mountainside. Stone lanterns marked the way, showing the start to the path of that shrine Asura had heard about.

As they drew closer, Asura kept an eye out for any further clues or smells related to their target. But there was no further locations of them.

"Hey, Asura," Ravana spoke up, "Something I want to tell you, kid."

"Yeah," Asura asked, the wind subtlly starting to change its direction slightly, putting Asura now from upwind to downwind. He stopped as he listened to Ravana's words.

"YOu really are a good tracker, and I haven't been very appreciative of your growth or effort to help me," the burly man said in a care free tone. "Thanks for that... and I'm sorry for giving you such a hard time with my missing sword."

Asura kept his back turned, paused as he listened to his companion's words. "Is that so...?" Asura said, his tone raised in question. "That's very kind of you..."

WHOOSH!! WHAM!! In a flash of motion-- Asura spun around with a fist raised. He threw it with all his might, attempting to smash Ravana right into the face!

The man's eyes widened as he brought up a fist and caught it-- the resulting impact causing him to skid a few inches back. His feet left grooves in the ground below.

Surprise on Ravana's face slowly melted into a small smirk. "What do you think you're doing, kid?" he asked, "Attacking your master like that?"

Asura's eyes glared daggers at him, angry. "Drop the act," he said deeply, "Who are you?"

The two were locked-- Asura's fist meeting the large palm of Ravana, reeling by Asura's words. "Have you lost your mind, boy!" he asked, "Do you know who you are throwing your fist at! I am your Master, Ravana!"

"I said drop the act," Asura snarled now, putting more force into his punch to make his arm move. "You aren't Ravana."

He didn't say anything but glared back at Asura.

"You gave yourself away in three ways," Asura explained, "One, Ravana is so strong such a blow wouldn't even make him flinch.... Two... That smell we traced, was on you more than before-- which either meant you crossed paths with the enemy without even knowing. But if that was the case, why would you stay downwind this whole time." Ravana remained quietly, and soon his expression faded to an annoyed look. Asura glared daggers, ready to strike again. "But what really gave you away... is that Ravana would rather bite off his own tongue before he would apologize for ANYTHING!"

Asura used the momentum of his caught fist and used it to reel his leg up-- and delivered a downward kick upon the imposter!

The man soon pushed Asura away -- and backed up with a flip. The aerial flip was one of far better movement than Ravana could handle with all his muscle mass. He landed to the ground in a crouch, and looked up with a smirk.

"Heh... clever little bastard, aren't you?" Ravana -- or the imposter who looked like him-- said gleefully. A chuckle came from his lips, but now with a different tone. A lighter, tone with almost a cackle like quality. "Safe to say you don't follow your master's follies."

IT was then Ravan's body became a puff of smoke as the imposter released his technique. A transformation jutsu. Asura watched carefully as the smoke moved-- a figure emerging from it at high speed. It jumped up into the nearby trees and landed gracefully onto a thin branch nearby.


Upon the branch was an odd looking humanoid fox. He had orange fur with tuffles of white mixed in to his chest, ears  and at the tip of three tails. Oddly for an animal he wore a pair of loose slacks, a sash and a tribal top that hung around his shoulders.

He stood there calmly with a cunning grin on his face. "Its rare that i meet a human so sharp. But a Shinobi is a Shinobi after all," the fox said looking down at Asura from his perch. "Most of the time I'm dealing with block-head blacksmiths seeking fame and glory. "

"And a what about Shinobi blacksmiths?" Asura retorted softly.

THe smirk showed on the fox's face. "Well that's another matter," he said, " DOn't you dare think you can outfox me, red-head. You'd lose."

The two glared at one another for a moment, a tension in the air between them. "So... guess the legend of a fox spirit in this shrine was true. YOu certainly don't look human." Asura said.

"No, I'm not human," the Fox said, "You can call me Inari the trickster. " He added with a graceful blow.

Asura glared sharper at the fox. "If you are here, where is Ravana?"

"Wandering around the city, for all I knew," the fox replied with a brush of his arm, as if to care less. "I kept an eye on him for a little while, till I saw you with him. You got close to me so I thought I'd have some fun with you."

"Yeah, well play time's over!" Asura shouted, and drew a few Shuriken in a flash. He threw them for the fox, intending to strike him quickly.

The fox grinned as a whirlwind and leaves swished across the view of him-- and he vanished just as the shuriken were about to hit. He became a blur of speed and immediately evaded. The orange flash moved into the trees, attempting to retreat.

"H-hey! Get your fuzzy butt back here!" Asura shouted and gave chase after the fox!

Asura kept his ears and eyes open, tracking the movements of the fox. He could tell the direction but not pin point him as he was an elusive creature. He seemed to jump small distances of space using the trees, as if to slip thorugh the trees themselves. They quickly scaled half way up the mountain side, and soon reached a small clearing in the trees.

The grove was roughly a few meters in radius and enough to see the sky. Asura quickly looked around, trying to find him. "Where is he...?"

"*Whistle* Over here, pup," a voice chirped.

Asura turned around, finding the fox again. THis time he lounged on one of the nearby branches, laid on his side as if he had been waiting. "Take it easy. The last thing from that poor excuse of a master of yours is his temper." The fox said and yawned as he rested there. "Why don't we just chat for a bit. It is clear your smarter than that lughead."

Asura cooled his temper a bit, enough to talk to him. "Trust me, anger wasn't the only thing he taught me. I learned plenty of good things from him, and I won't let you talk ill of him to my face." he said.

"Oh?" THe fox said as he cracked open an eye. He slowly sat up, his legs hanging off tthe branch. "He seems like a real joke to me. I mean no disrespect to you, but come on." he said and reached below the branch--- his arm seeming to disappear. "I mean after all... someone who falls for the older trick of a roofie in their drink , deserves nothing less than him losing... THIS."

It was then the fox pulled out Ravana's sword. The Wailing Dark. THe shimmiering silver sword glistened in the light that passed through the leaves, the fox smirking as he held the valuable ornament nodachi no harder as if it was an overgrown stick.

Asura gritted his teeth to control himself. "Why you... so you did steal it," Asura demanded.

"Yeah. Just deserts I say for someone like him," he said, "I can spot someone as full of it as he is. He got what was coming to him. It is clear to me though, you didn't grow from his tutorage alone. Someone truly honorable taught you before him."

The memory of Roku struck Asura's mind, making him shake his head. "Maybe I did... but I owe Ravana all the same. i'd be dead without him..." Asura said sharply. "But that is beside the point. You still stole from him. I demand you return what you stole, fox."

The eyes of the fox leered at him with a serious intent. "My name is Inari. You will do well to remember that, human." he said, a touch of coldness to the term 'human'. But then he easily rolled his shoulders and proped himself on Ravana's sword, as if it was a stick to lean on. "That Ravana fellow is a piece of work. Hardly worthy of respect-- but you... " the fox smirked, "I like you. I do. And that is why I am going to make you a deal."

Asura resisted the urge to branish his tiger claws. He bet he could slash through space and grab him-- but it took a second maximum for the rifts to form via a slash of his claws. If the fox was as fast as he was clever, he would evade it. He had to be patient. "A deal?" Asura asked, a bit of sweat forming at his brow.

"Yes, a deal," the fox said as he flicked at a tassel from the Wailing Dark Sword. "A fool like him doesn't deserve a sword like this. But I see you are ...honor-bound to retrieve it , or whatever..." he said, sarcastically toning the honor-bound part. He reached with his other arm behind the tree's trunk he was near. "So let me keep this, and I will give you ... this."

The fox soon pulled out a mallet-- a blacksmith's hammer! It was a hammer made of gold with orange accenting. It glowed with a light of its own. The handle was made of a white wood and jewel on top of it. It looked as beautiful as it was regal. Asura's eyes looked at the hammer, and the fox smirked.

"This is what you came here for, right? The Inari Okami Hammer?" the fox said, his three tails swishing in the air below the branch. "Tell you what, you let me keep the sword-- and I will give you the hammer. Your master would never know."

Asura didn't say anything. He just glared at the fox and the hammer. PArt of him wanted it-- and very likely the beast did in fact have dominion who got it or not. Still...

The fox could see the wheels moving in Asura's head. He just waited, wondering what the red-headed shinobi would say next.

"Forget it," Asura replied curtly. "I won't turn my back on him."

The fox sighed, almost disappointed. "Oh come on... Kid, you got you're loyalties screwed up," the fox said with a gesture of his paw to the city. "The man is scum. He is a vile womanizing thug who doesn't even deserve half the respect he earns from you. Tell me I am wrong? " The words of the fox did sting-- but only because of the truth laced in them. "This is exactly what he deserves. Stuck up on his own petard. All I am asking is you let this lesson be learned."

It was then as the words sunk in, Asura smirked. "You're right. He is a jerk at times. I don't condone his habits and he probably deserves this. It is poetic justice," he admitted and even made the fox smile. "But still... no matter how deplorable he is, he is my master. I owe him more than I could ever repay for taking me under his wing when I had literally nowhere else to go. He is my master and a friend..." The fox slowly frowned, seeing that the young shinobi couldn't be swayed. "Because, only the same kind of bastard you just described, would agree to a deal like that, you flea-bitten mutt!"

A growl escaped the fox-- the flea bitten part a distaste to him. "Oh, is that right..."

"Besides, I bet good money that hammer of yours," Asura added, "Isn't even real, right? Cause only someone really stupid would believe the legendary Inari Hammer would be a tool that tacky."

The fox frowned at this. He was speechless.

This time, Asura grew smug , able to tell. "I'm right, aren't I?" Asura said, not even a question. " I know enough about you foxes to know how wily you are. You aren't just shapeshifters but you can make anything look like something else."

Amusement was gone from the fox's face. "Wow... you must think you are smart," the fox said-- and let both sword and hammer go. The hammer disappeared behind the tree-- but the hammer, as it passed behind the branch-- became a mass of stones that plopped in thuds on the soft ground. "I really do like you kid. Wit worthy of any of my kind," the fox replied, and he rose to his feet. "You should of taken the deal when you had the chance. "

"Don't worry, I will honor the deal..." Asura replied, "But I'm taking that sword. I can promise you that!"

The tension in the air began to build as a breeze swept through the clearing. Now both of them were serious, the fox spirit angry for his ruse being seen through-- and Asura determined to beat the fox at his own game. The breeze began to sweep the leaves through the air, passing between them.

It was then that Asura made the first move and inhaled sharply. "Fire style-- Fireball Jutsu!!" He roared and released a blast of fire from his mouth, flying for the fox.

The fire burned up the leaves and eclipsed the view of the fox. While the fireball burned and shot past the branch-- it revealed no sign of the fox.

Asura quickly looked around, trying to find where the furry fiend went. "Missed me, hot head... now what will happen now," the fox echoed in the wind with a mild chuckle. "At least you are entertaining."

Asura grimaced as he looked around the swirling leaves. Was this wind style or some obscure ninjutsu art? "Keep talking, fuzz face. I'll make a throw rug out of you when I'm done."

"OH, how long did it take you to think up that one. Buuuurrn..." he whispered-- sounding right behind him.

Asura branished his tiger claws and swiped -- but there was no one there. He caught movement in the distance-- and quickly followed it.

Asura charged through the forest after the movements of the fox. He kept playing games with substitutions and vanishing. It was starting to make Asura wonder if this fox had any form of jutsu to use in offense instead of just running around messing with his head.

He soon entered another clearing, finding it darker due to the thick cover of trees around him and above him. He looked around, baffled. The only thing that stood out was the small worn down shrine at the far end of the clearing, covered in vines and leaves. "Where is he...?" Asura breathed, trying to sense the fox. Could he have left.

Suddenly, another gust came-- followed by the flow of multiple objects. Asura turned, and saw it-- the incoming swarm of leaves from the trees-- but it wasn't like how the wind carried. They were directed at him, like kunai!

"Shit--" Asura said as he made a dragon-hand sign. "Katon, Blazing Vortex Jutsu!" He let out a breath-- and fire spun out of his mouth. It quickly surrounded him and pushed outward him-- forming a tornado of fire. The small twister made contact with the leaves-- and immediately incinerated them. The embers of the leaves illuminated the space as the blazing vortex faded. Asura huffed, having been caught off guard. The fox had utalized the leaves in a ninjutsu attack of some sort.

"Keep this up and I may accidentally burn down the mountainside! Come on out!" Asura demanded, his temper rising. He was well aware his fire style was the best tool he could use, but at the same time, he couldn't risk dealing excess damage and burning down the forest.

Silence once more... He couldn't  figure out where the fox was this time. This was going to annoy him to no end of he couldn't even catch the damn guy. "Fine... if you want to stay hidden, lets even the playing field..." Asura said as he closed his eyes-- and focused.

Earth Style-- Sysmic Pulse Jutsu.

He gave a hard step onto the earth below him, and he felt a pulse of motion ripple out. In his mind's eye, he could see all things that were connected to the earth. LIke a black and white picture that moved with the pulse. It was his sensory jutsu to allow him to find hidden enemies. The pulse worked as he revealed something.

"Asura..." a voice spoke -- this time directly behind him.

Asura snapped his eyes open and turned... only to be stunned by who he saw.

His eyes widen with both shock and fright to see the person behind him. A man clad in crimson red robes, almost sage like. He had black hair and a lightly aged face with a beard. He looked at Asura with a stern, but recognized look. A look of a mentor to his student.

"M-Master Roku..." Asura said, feelings overwhelming him. His master, whom was the closest thing to a father he knew since his parent's death and his uncle. He now stood before him, the stern look melting into a smile. "It's you..."

"Asura... It's good to see you again," he said. He reached out a hand to to Asura and rested it on his shoulder. He felt it, almost flinching at the comforting feel. "You grown." Roku said iwth a smile.

He felt paralyzed, overwhelmed by the rush of emotion to see his master alive again... but the truth stabbed at him like a dagger. It was wrong. THIS was wrong.

Asura's eyes became angry points. "You bastard..."

WHAM!! Asura slammed a fist into the gut of the man, causing him to wheese. It was a direct hit and he did in fact hit something. Roku reeled, feeling the power of the punch. "Wh--why...?"

Asura's eyes flared- showing the Tengan. "You damn fox... That was low, even for you... to make me see HIm again." The fiery iris glowed as Roku pulled back, a bit of blood from his lips from the strong impact.

"B-but how could you..."

"My master is dead!" Asura growled, furious in his tone. "He died in my arms after he saved me. You used Genjutsu to invoke his image... means your a glutton for punishment!!" Asura roared. With that simple glance, a fiery explosion was set off, engulfing ROku in a barrage of explosions.

Asura felt a bit satisfied hitting the enemy with the flames-- but it was short lived. Soon, the flames seemed to grow, as more figures emerged. IT was more of ROku, now in growls and groans-- showing him as a char-coal zombie, still burning. "Asura..." they groaned.

THis was getting out of hand. It wasn't the fox transformed to look like ROku... but now it was some form of illusion. Asura bit his lip. "Damn it. Not genjutsu!" Asura growled, backing away from the nightmarish images of his mentor drawing close to him.

The sheer guilt to know he died to save him, made the illusion even worse. Even making him more afraid as the fiery specters came closer to him. Visions of the dead.

"Noo...." Asura gasped, trying to release the genjutsu, but---

WHAM!! A sudden blow to the face struck Asura that sent him flying. His senses were rattled as he thrown across the clearing and landed soundfully into a tree. The blow felt like a bruise to his bones-- but it wasn't as bad as he would imagine. But in the end... a punch was a punch.

The illusions of fiery roku as a zombie faded, and soon he saw the clearing as it had been. Even so, he found someone else.

"Pathetic, kid," Ravana spoke, rising up from the punch he delivered. "Didn't I teach you better than to fall prey to a cheap trick like that."

Asura blinked, confused. "M-Master Ravana!?"

It became clear. Ravana had punched him so hard, it rattled the Genjutsu in his mind. It was a brutal method, but effective to shake one loose from a genjutsu.

It was then that also the fox had appeared-- now perched on the roof of the small shrine at the end of the clearing. A frown was on the fox's face, displeased by the turn of events. "Oh, so you found us." the fox said, "And that isn't nice to punch your own student like that."

"Bah," Ravana laughed and rolled his shoulders. "If he couldn't take a punch like that, then I wouldn't of wasted my time training anyone less. "

In his own twisted way, his actions saved him. Though Ravana never admit it-- it was general concern that drove him here. Asura smirked at that.

"How did you even know where we were?" the fox asked Ravana, "Last I checked, you were bumbling around some bar."

Ravana soon pulled out a katana from behind him, showing it off. "I had to pick up a replacement sword. It's cheap but it would do," he said, "Then I saw something interesting. A fireball shooting out into the sky a few moments ago. I wonder who that could be."

Asura felt content again. His training had indeed paid off.
