Subject: Kaos discovers something Wed Jun 03, 2015 10:53 pm
Kaos once again found himself out in the forest that surrounds and hides the village Hidden in the Leaf. He was marveling at the many trees, quite glad of the alone time he was getting, although missing his own village, and couldn't wait to rush back to save it. He was looking for a nice quite place to rest and relax, hoping to find a tree to climb in and take a nap, seeing as how his travel here, the path as he remembers it running with the blood of those ninja who attacked him. He sighed, and shook his head, hoping to avoid the memories piling upon him. He starts to stumble around in the trees, almost face planting, definitely running into trees, bouncing off one only to run into another. Tears streaming down his face, Kaos stops, dropping to his knees and starts openly sobbing, while saying, "I don't understand, Why do I feel guilty, whenever they attacked me unprovoked. It's not my fault, that I killed them. I was just better than them, and as such, it was kill or be killed, either that or flee, and the way the looked at me, running and leaving them there to attack other Kumo ninjas because I was to much of a coward to deal with them would of sent me spiraling even more, after facing that demon and walking away, with his back to the city, not even trying to protect the villagers from the attackers. Kaos stops crying, as he thought he heard something. He faintly hears a noise off to his right, faintly, almost like it wasn't there or really off in the distance. Kaos follows the noise through the jungle, crashing into branches and bushes, way off the beaten path now. He stumbles over a branch, falling to the ground, scrapping his hand against a tree as he tries to catch himself, but failed to do so. He groans in pain, having caught himself with his already bleeding hand, and sighs. He pushes himself off the ground, then doing the signs for the medical jutsu, healing his wound, by using his chakra to speed up the clotting blood, healing and scabbing his hand wound over in a matter of minutes. "Ah, so glad that only took two minutes to finish healing up. Now to find out where the source of that noise is coming from." Kaos thinks to himself, peering out in the forest, seeing nothing but trees and some of the forest's flora and fauna. He looks around, hearing nothing at first. He keeps listening, but he still doesn't hear a thing. He begins to worry that whatever the noise was, either ran off, or no longer was able to make noises to attract Kaos's attention. Kaos crouches down, closing his eyes, becoming one with the forest around him. He relaxes, and keeps his breathing, nice and steady. He hears the local fauna, the birds chattering away in the trees, a rabbit being chased by a fox, a calm day to say the least. Then he hears the noise again, stronger this time, but still faint, and off in the distance once again. He rises up, and starts, silently, stalking towards the sound. With each meter walked the sound grows louder and louder still, until six meters after he started heading towards it, he could tell what the sound actually was. He pauses in his footsteps, and silently laughs, "It's a cat meowing? I wonder why there's a cat all the way out here in what seems to be the heart of the forest." Kaos shakes his head, and continues on his journey, silent, stalking towards the sound, until another five meters, he can see the cause behind the sound. Kaos stops, dropping to a knee, and looks at the source of the noise, a black cat, meowing loudly at the world. The cat, almost, looked like it was trying to get somebody to help it, but Kaos shakes his head, thinking, "That's just crazy, Kaos, why would that cat need anybody's help, it's a cat, it can take care of itself." Kaos silently watches from the shadows where he was hiding, when, suddenly, the cat looks directly at where Kaos was hiding. It stops meowing up a storm, and pads it's way over to Kaos. As soon as it gets near enough for Kaos to pet it, he reaches out his hand to the cat, attempting to pet the cat. The cat darts back away from Kaos, hissing at Kaos, and almost, clawing Kaos's hand in the process. "Okay, okay, no touching you. I got it. So then why were you howling up a storm then? Is Timmy stuck in a well?" Kaos says to the cat. The cat tilts its head at Kaos, before running off. "Oh, wait, don't go." Kaos shouts after it. It disappears in the underbrush. Kaos sits back onto his butt, and sighs, "Well, there goes that adventure I suppose. Uh, I guess I should return to Konoha. Don't think I'll be able to find that cat now, so no point in trying." Kaos starts to stand up, whenever a streak of black comes rushing towards him from the same direction that the cat had disappeared to. The black cat stops in front of Kaos, and he looks att the cat. He drops down to a knee and tries to pet the cat again. Once more, the cat jumps back and hisses, this time scratching Kaos in the process. Kaos hisses in pain at the cat, then does the medical jutsu again, to heal up the bleeding wound brought on by the cat. He looks at the cat and says, "Man, your claws are sharp. That hurts like sonofa and that's not a good thing." The cat tilts its head at Kaos, again, and then starts meowing up a storm again. Kaos looks at the cat, wonderng, what the cat was trying to get at. Kaos shrugs his shoulders, looks at the cat, and says, "Lead on?" At the sound of his voice, the cat takes off, and this time Kaos starts to follow the cat. The cat run straight through the forest, as Kaos stumbles along.While the cat is zigzagging through the forest like a pro, Kaos is running, more like bounching off trees, nearly tripping over the tree roots that seemed to be everywhere. The cat suddenly does a very sharp right turn, and Kaos, not expecting this turn, tries to turn as sharply, and skids right into a tree. "Ouch, " Kaos moans, as he recovers from running into the tree. "Ouch, ugh, stupid tree." The cat appears in front of Kaos, meowing, quite loudly, and demanding to be heard. Kaos looks at the cat, and says, "Okay, okay, let's go, do whatever you are doing, I guess." With that the cat rushes off again and Kaos following closely behind. The cat weaving in and out of the trees, Kaos, finally managing not to bounce off the trees, or stumble over any roots. They run through the forest, getting deeper and deeper into the forest. Finally, the cat slows down after they had been running through the trees for twenty meters. Kaos smiles, and groans, thankful for the break. He thought maye the cat was done with him, but as soon as he turned away, the cat began meowing once more. Kaos, turns towards the cat, bewildered at what the cat wanted from him. Kaos shrugs his shoulders and walks towards the cat. The cat turns, and promptly, walks away. Kaos follows and they both end up in a small, barely existing, mete wide clearing. Kaos laughs, as he steps forward into the clearing, and around the cat, as he thinks, "Wonder what's here. Buried treasure?" He looks around but doesn't see anything at first. Until the cat comes up behind him and nudges him forward. As he starts to move forward, the cat playfully bounds past him, over to a tree, with nothing special about it, except the fact that another cat was lying there. And with the cat, lays three baby kittens, each probably six months old. The cat runs up to the other cat, the mother cat if Kaos was to guess, and rubs itself, a male cat, now that Kaos thinks about it, on on the mother cat. They both start purring, and Kaos takes a knee, smiling at the little family of cats that was before him. He sits down on his butt, smiling, and thinking, "This world is alright at times, ath this is one on those times." Kaos lets his smile deepen, until something big, well bigger than the cats at least, darts into the clearing, snatching up the cat by the neck in its mouth that had lead Kaos here. Kaos sees that's a dog, white foaming at his mouth. Before Kaos can do anything, the dog crunches the cat's neck, crushing the cat's neck, and killing the cat. The dog shakes it around before throwing it away. It quickly, ravages the mother cat with his claws, before Kaos can even think of a resonse, the mother is dead. Kaos shouts as loud as he can, at the rabid dog, yelling, "NO!" The dog growls loudly at him, picking up one of the kittens into his mouth, and shakes in its mouth like earlier. Kaos starts to cry, as it throws that kitten off to the side and picks up another one. Kaos yells, throwing a kunai straight at dog, as the dog starts shaking its head. The kunai embeds itself through the cat, into the dog's brain. Kaos cries out as soon as he sees what he did, realizing though, that the kitten was probably already dead. he still sobs, and says "How is it that the world is so cruel? Why must this life constantly ruin the beautiful things?" Why?" He continues to sob, at how lost the world was. Then he remembers the last kitten. He hurridly ruses over to the kitten, and checking on it, making sure it was still alive. it was, and it was meowing up a storm. Kaos smiles thankful that at least one kitten out of the bunch had survived. He picks up the kitten, looking at it. The kitten turned out to be a pure black cat, and had it's eyes close. Kaos picks it up over his head to discover what gender of cat it was. The kitten turned out to be a mae, which Kaos though was cool. "You and me, together now. I think I'll call you Jeff, Jeff the Cat. Hi, Jeff the Cat, I'm kaos, and I'll be taking care of you from now on." At the sound of his voice, Jeff opens his eyes, meowing up a storm at him. Kaos smiles and says., "Hi there, aren't you a handsome little kitten. You and me are family now and we are going to be looking out for each other form now on. Think you can handle that Jeff." Jeff meows his response, and Kaos smiles, saying, "Thought so. Come on, I'm going to show you , your new home, well, it actually doesn't count as home, because it's not my home. But we'll see Kumo soon and that's mt home and now your home. It's beautiful there let me tell you, stick with me and i'll show it to you." Kaos sticks Jeff on his shoulder, climbing up the highest tree he could find, one hand making sure Jeff stayed on his shoulder, the other hand helping him climb up the tree. Kaos finds the gatess of Konoha, and says, "See that Jeff, that would be Konoha, the place I'm trying to get help from to go rescue my village from a very bad man. I'm hoping that they are friendly enough to help out, else it's just you and me versus that bad man, and let me tell you something I don't want to face that bad man alone, but I will if I have to." Kaos picks Jeff off of his shoulder, and holding on to Jeff, jumps off the tree, heading back to the gates of Konoha.
Am I a Hero or a Traitor: I ran from the fight. But that was because I was going to get help. Or that was the plan when I first started running... But even if I do get help, I no longer deserve to be called one of Kumo's shinobi for the very reason and fact that I ran. This is my resolve,, after I get help, after I return to try and save Kumo, I will leave Kumo, and never return, for this is my punishment for cowardice in the face of an enemy.
