Villagers started to scream as Onikage appeared in the middle of the village. His hands soiled with blood from the people that he had already slain. He looked around as he was wondering where the two shinobis that he was waiting for to appear. Looking over to his left, Onikage saw a child, who was about 10 years old, moving backwards as his back hit the wall of the store behind him. Eyes widened as he looked at this demon that already murdered a group of people. Standing in front of the kid, Onikage raised his hand and struck down as before his hand made contact with the child, a foot met his ribs. Being sent into the house behind him, Onikage walks out from the rubble as he looks over at the two shinobi in front of the child. "Hehe...took you two long enough to get here...Rikimaru" Onikage looked at the male as he then turned his head and smirked. "Ayame..." He looked over at the kunoichi. Rikimaru looked around as he saw the carnage that already transpired before their arrival. "Ayame...I need you to take the kid away from here" Slowly unsheathing his Ninjato, he pointed his blade towards Onikage. Ayame looked at Rikimaru and nodded as she looked at the boy and grabs his hand. "Come on, lets get you out of here." The boy nodded as he started to run with Ayame away from Rikimaru and Onikage.
Onikage's eyes were fixed on the boy as he just smirked as he looked back at Rikimaru. "Well, shall we have fun now?" Onikage rushed towards Rikimaru. Rikimaru lunged forward Onikage with his ninjato in hand. As they gotten close to each other, Rikimaru slashed at Onikage, aiming for his throat as he aimed for his neck. Onikage smirked as he moved one hand up as he blocked Rikimaru's hand, in result stopping the blade from scratching his throat. Spinning to his left, he went behind Rikimaru and backhanded him in the back of his head. Rikimaru ducked under to dodge this as the battle continued. Jumping back, Onikage smirked as he vanished. "Well everything is going as planned...so its time to take my leave..." After a couple of hand seals, Onikage vanished as he looked around at the village. All of the dead bodies, littered the floor as blood seeped into the soil. Sighing to himself, he sheathed his ninjato as he looked for where Ayame brought the child.
"Rikimaru! Over here!" Ayame stood there as she stood next to the young boy as she was checking to see if he was alright. Rikimaru walked over to the two as he looked at Ayame. "He is the only one that basically survived in this village...what should we do with him?" Ayame looked at Rikimaru as she stood up and looked over at Rikimaru. Rikimaru knelt down as he looked into the boys eyes. The boy looked up at the two shinobi was his eyes were held the fear from seeing Onikage in front of him and looked at Rikimaru and Ayame. "Can...can you please train me...I want to...i want to defeat that man who killed my family! my village!" He stood up swiftly as Rikimaru and Ayame looked at each other. "Take you in and train you to defeat Onikage?" Ayame asked as the boy nodded. "Rikimaru, this is your decision...since you are the head." Rikimaru closed his eyes as he started to think about this. It would be a good addition to the Azuma. "Alright, we will take you in and train you as one of our own." He put his hand on the child's head as he then removed his hand. "What is your name?" Ayame asked as she knelt down to met his eyes.
"My name is Katashi." Katashi looked at Rikimaru and Ayame as he nodded at them. "Katashi...well we should be getting back to Godha's manor, we shall bring you with us since you are now an Azuma shinobi." Ayame smirked as she know had a student to teach and Rikimaru smirked at her. Rikimaru walked forward as he picked up Katashi and put him on his back as both he and Ayame took off in the direction of Godha's manor. From the shadows, Onikage stood there as he just smirked as he just watched Rikimaru and Ayame take the child and laughed to himself.
Godha's Manor: Evening Time
Rikimaru, Ayame and Katashi appeared in front of the manor as the guards look at the three. They smirked at the sight as they look over at Rikimaru and Ayame. "So you two decided to adopt a kid of your own?" They started laughing as Rikimaru nervously laughed as Ayame blushed a bit. "So wait...does that mean that Rikimaru...you couldn't finish the job! and how long you two been together for!" After hearing this, Rikimaru glared as Ayame just laughed. "Okay Okay guys, thats enough for the jokes for now." Ayame said as she walked passed with Katashi and Rikimaru moved. They patted Rikimaru on the back. "Its okay man, it only happens to the best of us!" They laughed again as Rikimaru just sighed as he looked over at them and continued on. Ayame looked over at Rikimaru as he chuckled a bit as he scratched his hair. "Those guys...lucky we knew them for years." Katashi looked around as he was amazed by how big the manor is and how it was surrounded by guards in mostly every area. "Now, Katashi, we must bring you to our lord for he can know that you will be staying here and learning the ways of the Azuma." Katashi nodded as he followed the two to the inner chambers of the Manor.
Sitting near the back of the manor, Godha and Kiku were sitting on their thrones as Rikimaru, Ayame and Katashi stopped in the center and bowed to them. Kiku smiled as she saw Ayame and Rikimaru, but wondered who this new boy was. Godha looks at the three. "Rikimaru, Ayame...who have you brought here wtih you?" Katashi looks over at the man who have just spoken and figured that this was Godha. "Godha-sama, this young boy is from the village that Onikage slaughtered...he wants to be trained in the Azuma and defeat Onikage." Godha looked at the two as he got up and walked over to Katashi. Kiku followed behind her father as she wanted to get a better look at Katashi and her blush just stayed on her face. Ayame noticed where her gaze was and just smiled to herself.
"Rikimaru, I know your judgement...I will allow this child to stay here and train as a shinobi for the Azuma clan." Godha nodded towards Rikimaru as Kiku walked over to Ayame as she stood up. "Well sir, we will show him to his room." Ayame gets up as she puts her hand on Katashi's back and nods. "Father, can I go with them also?" Kiku asked as Godha smiled at his daughter and nodded. "Sure, Kiku, you can go with them" Rikimaru and Ayame smirked as they saw Kiku's facial expression as she walked over to them and took his hand. "You will like it here!" She giggled as Ayame and Rikimaru followed the two and laughed to themselves.
Katashi looked at Kiku as she was giggling all the way to his new room. "So...ah, your name is?" He asked as Kiku stopped in front of his door. "My name is Kiku. and yours?" She asked as she looked at him. "Katashi." Rikimaru looks at Ayame as he just shrugged and opened the door for Katashi. "This is where you will be living. Change it up as you would like. This is your room now." Rikimaru motioned for Katashi to go and look at his room and just smiled to him. Katashi looked around as he knew that he would be able to do what he wants with this room. "Thank you for this." He bowed to them as Rikimaru, Ayame and Kiku stood outside of the room. "Training will start in the morning, so its best to get some rest." Ayame smirked as she was the first one to train him, not Rikimaru. They closed his door as when it was shutting, Kiku was waving to him with a smile.
"Well today was a good day...somewhat." Ayame stretched a bit as Kiku walked on her left side and Rikimaru on her right. "Yeah..." Rikimaru was in thought as he wondered why Onikage decided to attack that village and only leave that one boy alive before he saved him. Ayame and Kiku looked at Rikimaru as they both knew that look. "Something wrong, Riki-Nii-San?" Rikimaru snapped out of his trance as he heard Kiku call for him. "Hmm, its nothing Kiku-hime...I'm just a little tired...so I'm goin to sleep early tonight." He disappeared as Ayame and Kiku just stood there and wondered what was wrong with him.
Katashi opened up the window in his room as he looks outside. He took in a deep breath of the night time air. He knew that tomorrow will be good and can't wait until that day.
