    Default Naruto SoundITP IC 1: A Melancholy Song of Hope To Come

    A Melancholy Song Rings Out Across the Farmlands...
    The sun rises upon the Land of Rice, known for the many rice fields that cover its plains. Despite its small size, it produces as much rice as larger nations and in high quality due to efficient and well-developed farming techniques making it a valuable source of food for any who rules it. Such a simple joyous thing which brings many happiness across the shinobi nations from simply giving them a good meal. Such a tragic thing, that so many have spilled blood and given lives to claim or to protect it- soldiers, militia, shinobi all. The waters irrigated throughout these lands were once soaked in blood and many anticipate it will be again.

    The light of the sun touches the Village Hidden in the Sound, many think it is named so because of the wind chimes they put up to warm them of coming storms- they are wrong, it is named for being protected by many paper landmines that explode with loud booms when one steps too carelessly near it. A common C-Rank mission for the shinobi here is to escort coming and going merchants through the the safe paths of landmines to make sure trade keeps flowing without injury, a demonstration of their ability to protect the people under them and an effort to keep both their defenses and their economy afloat.

    The Sound Village, being a newly established village is full of new structures and buildings. The Radio Station, Otokage's Tower and ANBU base dominate the skyline, built close together in the center-north east part of the village in the most north-eastern part is the labs, in the south, southeast is the industrial district where factory produce goods with the storefronts built next to them that keep the village supplied and fed, as well as the red light district and various other businesses.

    Looking west we see the residential districts and the Sounds' ninja academy. Due to the Sound's disregard for nobility and bloodlines, many ninja homes are mixed in with the common citizens, and said citizens learn to deal with anything... strange that might result. If they don't want to deal with ninja living next to them, they are always free to leave. Though even ninja village citizens try not to think about what shinobi too much. It is dangerous to contemplate what secrets lurk in such places. We, however do not have the luxury of such ignorance.

    Kimiko:
    We come in, to observe one Kimiko Ishikawa, in the new home of the diminished Ishikawa Clan. It is a modern mansion, bigger than most homes but lacking in the traditional aesthetic that the clan would prefer. Beggars however cannot be choosers: There are only about thirty clan members left after the Kiri purge and their efforts to join with the Sound to gain independence. They've done their best to dress up to make it look more traditional with rooms with tatami mats and so on, but they don't make as much money as they wish. Her older brother Jirou is leading her to room in the basement and stops near a door, and turns to her with a sharklike grin.
    "So. Just graduated today, eh?" Jirou asks
    "As if there was any doubt that I would!" she replies with a similar shark smirk.
    "Indeed. But in our clan, you know thats not the real test."
    "I understand. I am ready." Her face goes stoic and serious.
    "....Of course you are. The little prodigy, why wouldn't you be? Okay then. Lets begin."
    He opens the door into the room. Inside is a man, his clothes are worn, his eyes ragged and his breathing is stressed.
    "This is your target. Don't come out of this room until you kill him."
    "Who is he?"
    "Does it matter?" he says in a testing tone.
    "Of course it does. You don't kill someone without proper assessment of their capabilities."
    "Hm, a valid answer. Very well. This man is a bandit. He has killed at least three people for money. He was once a soldier during the war twelve years ago, but he deserted. Now he is no one. He is malnourished, his training hasn't been maintained he knows no jutsu and is alone the only caveat is that he has a kunai for some reason."
    Kimiko confused tries to ask what Jirou is talking about before he throws the bandit a normal kunai who catches it in his hand. Kimiko takes out her own paper kunai and readies herself, feeling a little nervous.
    "Must've stolen it off a shinobi or something, you'll have to fight for your life."
    He then turns to the door, going and before he closes it all the way he says with a sadistic sharklike grin
    "Oh and by the way- bandit? your town burned down a month after you left. fire jutsu, a nation you weren't even fighting. You came back for nothing."
    He then shuts the door. The man roars out in a sudden rage and comes charging at Kimiko for a thrust. For a moment Kimiko feels fear and doubt: could she really do this? could she really end a mans life? One brought here specifically for her test? she anticipated this moment all her life, and now that it was right in front of her, she felt hesitation. but she steeled herself. Kimiko Ishikawa would not shirk away from this! She was the hope of clan Ishikawa, its new great prodigy! She would not fail in this mere task!
    Little does Kimiko know that killing a man is never a mere task.
    She channels chakra through her paper kunai, sharpening it and dashing forward to stab him through the heart nearly on reflex- and succeeds. Easily, the blade piercing through his chest and sliding back out as easily. Paper was incredibly sharp and when hardened it became a deadly weapon. His corpse slumps to the ground, as she feels...a numb, an emptiness as she realizes that she just ended a life. As if something just broke in her that could never be fixed. If she had any illusions about the life of being a shinobi, they had just ended.

    She walks back out silent wondering what she had just done. Her thoughts and footsteps her only companion on the way back, eyes wide as contemplated how fast, how deadly it had been. How a life was there- then gone the next. She comes to see the Clan looking at her, seeing her bloodied appear kunai then erupt into celebration, cheering at her having passed their to be a true shinobi: the ability to kill a man. They act as if its a joyous occasion, thump her on the back and tell her that she will become a a great shinobi one day, expecting her to outshine them all. Her mother, Mitsuko clears her throat and presented the Origami No Tsurugi, the ancestral blade of Clan Ishikawa.
    "Kimiko, my daughter, it is with great pride that I say that you are a true shinobi in the eyes of your Clan! As my heir, I give to you the Origami no Tsurugi to wield as you see fit. May you use it to one day lead our Clan to greatness once again- and perhaps maybe even this entire Hidden Village! We expect great things from you, and we are sure you will not disappoint!"
    Kimiko tries her best to sound confident as she accepts the blade.
    "Yeah! Of...of course I won't disappoint you Oka-sama. I'm a genius! The best and brightest. I will wield it with pride."
    Deep down however, what she really wants is to just learn all the jutsu, not lead anyone. But she'd never dare tell her mother that. For there is nothing more terrifying to kid or a teen than telling their parent that they disagree with them. Jirou watches her in the corner, wondering what has he done? It was tradition for the sibling or closest family member to do this part and tradition was one of the few things the Ishikawa Clan had left. He had just turned his little sister into a killer.

    This is the day Kimiko became a Genin, her first day as a ninja. Tomorrow, she meets her team.

    Usagi
    At the neighberhoods of the industory section, inside an apartment of an ugly grey concerte building, scarred from siege and bare iron barks peeking from it like broken ribs.
    One of the windows had light inside.
    For Usagi, this evening wasn't grimdark and bloody- though she had her own bloody and grimdark evening few years ago.

    "Usagi-Chan. Stop ruining our poor floor with your damn crutches!" One armed eldery woman, yelled at the tanned red haired slinky girl.
    "Sorry Tsuru-San!" She said cheerfully, tossing the crutches and hopped to stand on her palms.
    Tsuru sighed. "Seriously, Usagi, our poor apartment can't deal with a trouble maker like you."
    "I am not a trouble maker!" Usagi yelled, and followed her into the tiny kitchen. It might have looked funny, if you ignored the fact her pants were tied above the knees- because she didn't had knees, nor anything below.

    Usagi also seen it, as form of training. "Tsuru? Aren't you opening cans tonight?" She has asked, as she lift herself and jumped into an old rusty chair, which creaked under her sudden "attack."
    "Not today Usagi-Chan." Tsuru said warmly, and placed on the table two edged plastic bowls of steaming ramen.
    "Nani?!" Usagi gasped. "You went to buy food at a resturant?! It must have cost to you almost a whole salary!"
    "Well, I had to take a small loan for this..." Tsuru admitted. "But, not everyday, you graduate the Ninja Academy. And as nothing less then member of the Hope Generation!"
    Usagi looked down, her eyes shined with tears. "I swear I'll make money on my missions and give you ramen every week!" She said with a wide smile.
    Tsuru laughed. "I don't doubt it. Let's dig in before it get cold." She paused.
    "What about Usagi-San? Don't you want to invite him?"

    Usagi sighed. "Nooo... he is very strict, only buisness kind of pact I have with him."
    "Uh. I am sorry to hear. He such a nice fella. And handsome too." Tsuru teased.
    "Don't be wierd." Usagi pouted. And so... they simply enjoyed their meal.




    Midnight: The Sound's Public Radio Channel

    "...And this was the noise from the Broken Record Club! They are surely wild partiers! Haha! And now time for a midnight speech of our gloriouse Ottokage: Me!"
    *"offical" musical opening for news*
    "Right. As I already broadcasted earlier, today the Hope Generation Genins have graduated! The first ones to graduate simply by passing the exams, without need to bloodshed so early in their lives!
    They represent our hope for a future of peace and prosperity. But to our enemies who listen to this channel as well- don't mistake them to be weak. They are healthy, unscarred by the Indepdence War. They will grow strong and wise, and the whole world will have to listen to their sound! So if you have a cup of sake near you, drink to their honor, brothers and sisters! And now.. a message to the Hope Generation themselves: GO TO SLEEP! Good night!"





    9:00 PM: Odayaka Watanabe's House


    https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20180620171233

    Odayka has collapsed with a sigh. Dropping off his children at the kinder garden and elemantry school was much bigger a chore then he expected. There were something important for him to go... but his wife, wouldn't agree to be late for her work even for once!
    Well, what matter, was the fact it is all over. He sipped a cup of cofee, when his personal radio woke up to life with the voice of the Ottokage.:"[I]Hello Brothers and sisters! Now 9 AM! And I am so excited! The Generation Of Hope has now passed their introductions, and probably start training and testing!"
    "Hmm.. that nice." Odayaka hummed. Then he blinked and spat the cofee. "Ksu! I have completly forgotten!" He bursted out of his house, forgetting to close the door. So after two minutes he has returned to close and lock the door

    Then he remembered he has forgotten his wallet inside.

    When he arrive to the place of meeting- an abandoned watch tower at the weat of the village it was 9:24.


    Usagi made push ups, ignoring the late panting bearded man, who were dressed in the "tradional" fashion of the Sound. (Like Orochumaru and the four of sound)
    He panted. "I am sorry, Miko and Kimiko were so whinny this morning..." he started to explain, looking out of breath.

    Morning:
    As Kimiko goes out the door, she is stopped by Jirou
    "I just want to ask...little sister...are you okay? After..."
    She is silent for a moment, flashbacking to the moment of killing the man, her eyes a million miles away. The image, burned into her memory forever.
    Then she grins and says
    "Of course I am! Its something every does ninja does eventually right? I'm just...getting started early. Its normal for ninja. So why shouldn't I be great at it?"
    "....Very well. But you know if there is anything wrong you can always tell me."
    "Your concern...is appreciated. But I won't need to! I'll make you and whole clan proud brother! You'll see!"
    She cannot show weakness. She cannot admit weakness. Weakness leads to death. Or being seen as unworthy. Or failure. Her family needs to see that she is strong. That she can handle this. She is the prodigy they expect- no, a prodigy beyond their expectations. That she is worth their care, the effort of raising of raising her. Jirou considers her response.
    "....I see. Have a good time with your new team, sis. Remember the importance of teamwork."
    "I knoooooow, as if that wasn't drilled into me thousand times over when I was like six. I'll cooperate don't worry. Cya bro!"
    He waves as she leaves.

    Team Meeting:
    Kimiko and Yuyu are already there with Usagi, waiting for their team leader. Kimiko shark grins, the Origamai No Tsurugi with its paintbrush pommel, her clothes all blue:
    "Well hope you don't confuse your daughter with me then. Kimiko's my name to. Kimiko Ishikawa. Top of my class prodigy."
    Yuyu introduces herself. She has long silky flowing black hair with green wily eyes, she carries a red japanese umbrella on her shoulder and wears glowing beautiful colorful clothing with long sleeves, greeting you all with a smile.
    "Hello, I'm Yuuna Yuuki Yukimura. But everyone just calls me Yuyuyu or Yuyu-Chan.
    How are you all doing today? I'm doing fine myself and hope to help however I can."

    Kimiko herself is already assessing her teammates: Legless Wonder, the social butterfly, and a sensei showing up late for his own team. Guess the higher ups decided she needed a challenge. It was only natural, genius needs to be honed by adversity after all.
    "Speaking of team mates, congratulations Legless Wonder. Your the world's first legless genin. Already breaking that glass ceiling. That was more than I expected!"
    Yuyu gives her a look and says
    "Don't be rude, Kimiko"
    "What? it was a compliment."

    Usagi stopped her pushups, waved at Yuyuyu's concern for her feelings. "Hey, if she want to fangirl over me, then let her" she said with a wide cocky smile.
    She stood on her hands ,and spin jumped to take a seat.
    "The name is Uaagi! And I'll never be helpless again! Especialy not because of small hindrance of not having legs!"

    She frowned. "And how am I supposed to respect a team leader who forget his own team?!" She has accused.

    "Mmm..." Odayama mmfed with insecurity.
    "And ALSO! I won't forgive favoritism, just because Kimiko happens to have the same name as your daughter!" She yelled.
    "Hey- it's not like-"
    "AND-"
    "Enough!" Odayama yelled with surprising authority.
    "I did a mistake. It doesn't mean you can trample me. I have apologized once, you should accept it and that it." He took a deep breath.
    Yeah. If his wife would accept it, this would be great...
    Usagi puffed her cheeks but shutted up.
    Odyama sighed. "You can call me Odayama Sensei. You probably have much more potential then I ever had. But I have exprienced things, I hope you never will, and of nothing else, respect the fact that people like me, kade your generation possible. So until, I say otherwise, you will treat me as superior to me." He said.

    "So... now that is said, let's get to know each a little bit.'
    He sat on the floor. "I'll start, so I'll be the one to feel akward." He smiled, as someone, who had exprience in the art of akwardness.

    "I was part of the city's patrol, and it actually was quite convient, being a father to little girls. But I lost a bet, and the Ottokage has signed me to lead you. He probably also thought it will be funny, if I trained Genin with the same name as my daughter. So...... here I am." He shrugged
    Very inspiring?

    Kimiko
    She snorts at Usagi's comment.
    "Oh, you think I was fan girling, thats hilarious, Legless Wonder. Keep dreaming, I'm only saying that because you'll never get anymore than that."

    Then Yuyuyu introduces herself with elegant bow and a smile after Odayama explains.
    "Hai, Odyama-Sensei. I'm Yuyuyu, I come from a civilian family. my specialty is Genjutsu, infiltration and information gathering. I wish to uncover the secrets of the shinobi world and help those around however I can. I hope we can get along. While I can defend myself, Combat is my last resort and I am terrible at Ninjutsu. I like fashion and knowing secrets."
    Then Kimiko salutes as Odayama introduces himself, then does so herself in turn.
    "Of course I respect you, Odayama-sensei. We all stand upon the shoulders of giants. I am Kimiko Ishikawa. Top of my Class and thus of the Hope Generation. I am the Heiress of the Ishikawa clan, wielding the Origami no Tsurugi that has been passed down my family for generations. I excel in taijutsu, fuinjutsu and ninjutsu and while I don't know any Genjutsu I have demonstrated the chakra control needed to do them perfectly, and my dream is to learn all jutsu ever through my own efforts."
    She says full of herself. She also has invented her own jutsu and killed a man, but a good shinobi never reveals all that they know or are capable of.

    "What?!" Usagi barked, and yelled at Kimiko. "Take it back Pirahan girl!"
    "Hoi, hoi..." Odayama tried fruitlessly to sooth it down.
    "And I will be Chunin waaaaaaay before you!" She added with a daring stare.

    "Calm down now." Odayama said with more authorative tone.

    "So, Usagi, you told us your dreams, but why won't you describe your skills?" Odayama has asked.

    "Beside having the strongest arms of the village?" Usagi bragged. "Well, I am an expert archer, I can shoot a bee from 100 feet range! I also happens to have already have contract with great warriors of the Rabbit Realm! And! Much! Much! Much! Mooooooore!" She said loud and with over the top excitment.

    "I see. That nice." Odayama has answered.
    Usagi frowned, from not getting more then that.

    "You thee sure are promising. Strong clans are important to defend the Rice Lands from deadly clans like Hyuga and Uchiha. I will try my best to help you reach your full potential, Kimiko. Of course, you'l have to learn how much yet, you have to learn." Odayama said.
    "Yuyuyu. Even if subtle, your expertise might be what judge a mission to doom or succes. And beside- I think that when people say "Hope Generation" they have *you* in mind."
    And to Usagi he mostly sighed. "Your hardwork is surely a wonder. But I'll have to teach you, that you have to do more then improve your combat skills and abilities."
    "This is silly! All a ninja need to do, is to win her battles!"

    Odayama sighed. "You'll see. But I see you aren't friends yet. This might be a problem. We the Sound Village, are probably the weakest village-"
    "Hey!" Usagi was insulted, but Odayama has ignored her. "One of the key elements of our survival, is good communication- and not only the kind that Radio Tech provide. So, for today, I want you reharse as a band. To create harmony togethrer."

    "This is stupid! " Usagi groaned.

    Kimiko:
    A part of her feels happy that she doesn't have to kill again. A part of her feels disappointed that she is not killing again, as a ninja should. She doesn't like the fact she feels two ways about this and hides behind a shark grin while saying
    "Of course. Mission completion is vital and you can't complete missions with out working together. It matters not who I am working with, it matters that I work with them."
    Yuyuyu looks at her surprised.
    "...Isn't that supposed to be my line?"
    "Yuyuyu, please I'm from a clan that has been serving as shinobi for generations. I've been taught the importance of setting aside my personal feelings for the mission since I could walk. Right now the orders we've received is to work as a band, and that is what I will do. It is probably not too different from other D-Rank work we will be getting and thus nothing unexpected as shinobi of our position. Come let us plan. Odayama-Sensei has given us our orders and now we must carry them out."
    Yuyuyu holds up hand.
    "Wait a moment Kimiko, there is more to this....our goal of forming band is to perform at that music club isn't it, Odayama-Sensei? The deadly ninja one where they attack you for playing badly? and to play there and get out alive or unharmed, I'm assuming."
    There is always an underneath. Yuyuyu had good knowledge of all the places ninjas congregated in the village as apart of her efforts to be informed about the workings of the ninja world, and ninjas never give a seemingly mundane test without a deadly twist to make sure your giving it your all.

    Meanwhile: Jirou
    "Uncle..." he wonders. "Did we do the right thing in making her kill so early?"
    Uncle Susumu chuckles in laughter as he takes a swig of sake.
    "You kidding me Jirou? If anything we were going easy on her. Back in my day in Kirigakure, we got paired up with partners in the Academy, for our entire stay there. Supposed to do everything together, rely on each other, fight together and so on- then kill each other as the final test! And I did it and became a stronger shinobi because of it."
    Jirou pauses as he considers this.
    "...That seems like a big waste of valuable time, resources and training."
    "Well thats why they drafted twice as many as other nations! Don't worry though, the noble clans made sure to bribe the academy teachers so that we got paired with no talent civvies, my friend Takumi wasn't all that special, had no chance against me, unfortunately for him. At least I didn't kill another clan member or another noble kid and tick off somebody important, thats the system for you."
    Jirou is starting to understand why a crazy kage decided to implement the blood purges: they weren't play along with his little survival of the fittest game.
    "....But you tell stories about Takumi to this very day Uncle. How you were fond of him, how you still miss and care for him."
    "That I do....that I do. But we're ninja, nephew. Doing what is required of us comes first and friends second. Thats just how things are. "
    "...If you say so uncle..." Jirou sighs as Uncle Susumu sips more sake, hoping Kimiko would be better. And that they didn't already ruin the chance for to be so.

    [Odayama's Team. (Did we pick a number?)
    (He has this expriession, but without the blush. Not sure how to describe it, without a refrence)
    Odayama chuckled embaressed. "Oi, you are the type who spoil shows and books, aren't you Yuyuyu? This isn't very fair. I never had trained Genins before, and now I'll never look cool and wise. I guess my Sensei was right medicority is my ninja way."
    Sometimes, he wondered why she married him, despite that.

    "Oh! I see! So you are just pretending to be lame, and secretly is awesome!" Usagi said hyping up.
    "Ehhhhh....." Odayama kept rubbing the back of his head akwardly.
    "Yeah, so before that, you should get a place to train and reharse." Odayama said anxiously.
    "Wait, do we have to really to make a show?" Usagi has asked, as she picked her crutches and walked after the lead of Odayama.
    "Well, Yes. Wouldn't it be fun? Music is the real weapon of our nation." He said.
    "Oh. Yes. I'v seen our teacher at the Academy cut a tree with it!" Usagi said with a excitment.
    Odayama face palmed. "No, not like that... ugh. Never mind. Eventually you'l get it."
    He led them to an abandoned part of the village- craters were everywhere, crumbling buildings, and also few "pools" made from broken sewer system, industry and labs's waste.
    "Don't breath too much." Odayama gave a tip.
    This was one of the deadlist fronts of the famouse siege, and also training grounds for many growing Shinobis. He pointed at what seemed like a warehouse. "Well, kids. Good luck. I got to make grocery shoppings."
    "WHAT?!" Usagi barked angerly.





    Mysteriouse Lurker In The Shadows
    Those little girls. The "Hope" Generation, that everyone praising them for being fed with silver spoons made of blood of sweat of people like him.
    There were only despair. Hope was cruel. Hope was a misguiding jutsu, letti g you dream that things will get better.
    This is a lie. They never will.
    He has learned this the hard way. And eventually the Hope Generation will understand it as well.

    (No we didn't decide on a number. I thought you were going to. I don't think it matters much as long as its a number under 20, so why not Team 3?)
    Kimiko:
    "Ah yes, music is a good weapon in many respects. I had to learn to write this villages secret code language which is nothing but music notes. hard to get right, especially with ink brushes, but thats cryptography for you."
    Yuyuyu sweatdrops a little.
    "I'm pretty sure spoiling the surprise is at least one third to half of our job...ambushes are bad."

    Kimiko snorts as Odayama leaves.
    "Usagi, if our superiors had to supervise us every moment of our jobs we'd never get anything done as shinobi. This is nothing compared to the times when we'll be sent on long missions to other nations without much if any contact with headquarters. Even our radio has limits to its range." Kimiko says
    Yuyuyu decides to flip the perspective
    "C'mon, think of it this way: without the "lame" Odayama-Sensei around we can accomplish the mission any way we want without needing his input, as long as its effective. By the way, Kimiko what do you think of Sensei?"
    Kimiko shrugs
    "Well he is one rank higher than us and somehow supports a loving family on his pay, he constantly self-depreciates which I don't think is an act which is okay every shinobi has their weird quirks, helps mix people up as to what is acting and what is actually real behavior, but the Otokage trusts him to lead a genin team, one which has me and Legless Wonder here, so there must be something to him or he wouldn't be trusted to lead a team like this. I'd say he is adequate personally."
    She begins walking towards the warehouse.
    "Enough of this. we have work to do, and I have the best song we can perform....a song that everyone who hears it loves and cannot stop singing, no matter how long it has been since they heard it."
    "What is it?"
    "Heheheheheh...get an electric guitar and a mobile piano. We need to get down the beat...I want to be singer, if your both okay with that. Only for this one song, if we ever want to do this later, we can switch roles."
    She whispers the song that they're going to play to bother and Usagi. Yuyuyu smirks at this.
    "No way. this...will either work very well or work so badly that they kick us out forever. Either way this'll be fun. I'll play piano, guitar requires no feet to play, while some pianos do."
    Lets keep the song a secret until the actual playing.

    Odayama-Sensei

    Earlier during the conversation, when each of them were distracted, he flicked with his fingers a tiny bug-like device for listening.
    But he indeed actually was shopping for groceries.
    Why did he married his Sensei again? Everyone told him this was bad idea.
    She wanted fresh vegtables- but everything here was canned!
    The good stuff, were in the V.I.P part of the store. And Odayama most defintly was NOT a V.I.P.
    Ugh. It was kind of training, right?


    Team 3
    Usagi groaned. "I can do alone just fine, as I always did. It's just that people who are slacking off in their job piss me off. Anyone should do his maximum and beyond!"

    Her eyes have widened from Kimiko's idea. "Yeah! It will be great! Maybe a great failure, but one way or another it will be grrrreeat!"

    "Stop!" She yelled all of the sudden, when she has noticed something.
    There were sound based mines around the werehouse.
    Just dozen.
    "I'll handle it." She said, and pulled needles with bells.
    She threw them near each mine, activating them from safe distance.
    "Aha! So it was a test aftel all! And we nailed it!" Usagi said with pride.

    The doors of the warehouse were opened easily, but their creak were painfully loud.
    Usagi has booped the lightswitch with her crutch. Surprisngly, it worked.
    With a single lightbulb shading a small circle of light in the big warehouse, right on imporvised stage, made from boxes.
    On the stage were an electric guitar, set of drums and a microphone. If adapted to the darkness, the team could see, this was a werehouse of musical tools and instuements kf all types- though old. It had also the tools to tinker with them.
    On the stage there also red bright spray:"Odayana rullllzzzz"

    Team 3
    Yuyuyu says
    "Nice catch with the sound mines there, Usagi."
    Kimiko adds
    "Yeah, for a legless wonder."
    Yuyuyu stares at the set up with the neon lights with a wry expression.
    "....Somehow I'm not even surprised, yet disappointed all the same."
    Kimiko shrugs
    "Every shinobi has their quirks. My uncle still tells stories of his time in Bloody Mist Village as if he was fond of it, the weirdo. Now lets start practicing...."
    They get the equipment working, writing out the notes and the set up, Kimiko grabs the mic and says
    "Okay here's how its going to go, on my count: 1, 2, 3, 4-"

    Later:
    After much practicing, they go to the deadly ninja music club known as the Siren's Song. So named after the legend of an explorer who ventured far and wide and found a strange spirit whose song lured him with obsession towards her and thus to the explorers doom as a trap. So of course Sound ninja decided to name their music club that and serve tea and sake there. Yuyuyu is the first to approach the bouncer, smiling with a look of bravery and a glint of danger in her eyes saying
    "Why hello there, me and my friends would like enter in, if that is no problem, handsome."
    Yuyuyu insisted on handling this part. Kimiko didn't argue as she knows she isn't the most sociable person in the world and had a different task of transporting the needed instruments stored in scrolls before the song.

    This was their plan.
    But... once, Kimiko started to sing, a shriek of beastly rage echoed from everywhere.
    Shady figure with bare fangs jumped on Kimiko.


    If Kimiko attack it-
    Spoiler: Then, the figure dissapesr into the darkness. a Shadow Clone Jutsu? but it didn't even looked human!
    Show

    Facepalm*
    (Posting from the phone, make me more baka. Ugh!



    Then the monkey jump at Usagi, who wave her crutch at it, squshing it into shadows as well. "Ugh. *what* is this?!"
    More shadow clones attack- they can figure it looks like deformed babboon monkey, with curse marks over half of it's body.
    If they have unnatural mean to watch it carefuully, it's ear tagged with tiny metal plate:"EWB092F"

    [SPOILER=Secret]
    The real monkey hide under the stage, spamming shadow clones to overhelm the evil invaders.
    His motivation is simple- he hurt and in a world of pain, and he want to be left alone in his newfound territory.
    Spoiler: Secret2
    Using his chakra killing him faster, and causing the curse to spread faster. In five minutes, kf they still don't find him he will enter berserker mode, which will make on Chunnin level Taijutsu for five minutes. Odayama don't expect them to actually win- just to survive until the monkey's curse will kill it.

    [/SPOILER
    Show


    Spoiler: Secret 3
    Show

    Even Odayama didn't knew- if he would knew, he wouldn"t have made this mission like this.
    The second Jutsu the monkey is trained to do.. is Last Shout.

    ....(I'm just going to pretend as if I don't see this. its not as if spoilers matter much, since quotes can see though that anyways um...perhaps try not writing out the secrets right in the post next time?)

    Kimiko:
    Kimiko quick as lightning draws and slashes at the pouncing figure with her paper sword in one movement. Then as more come, she begins furiously attacking them with more sword slashes to protect all three of them. See the advantage of your sword's blade being made out of paper was that it is incredibly light- lighter even, than most blades of its size. combined with its sharpness made her strikes incredibly fast and lethal, passing through monkey clones like butter, the copies poofing into smoke
    "Shadow clone? Thats a Leaf village technique. A high level one. Who decided to teach a monkey to use this jutsu as if its going out of style? It divides your chakra evenly among the clones, where are they getting all the chakra for this? Most shinobi can only make a couple clones of this level at best...."
    While she doesn't know the particulars, there are some techniques that are simply famous throughout the ninja nations despite being forbidden or otherwise high level and restricted to a single village because a legendary ninja once used it to great effect. The Shadow Clone Jutsu, a greater konoha-exclusive version of the normal Clone Jutsu, is one of them. Problem is with legendary ninja however is that their techniques and the weaknesses thereof have a higher chance of being found out, due to repeated use, higher scrutiny and their often public and flashy displays. Though Kimiko is particularly well read in various jutsu legendary and non due to her personal interest in the subject matter, while most ninja know they won't be encountering such unique and legendary techniques in their lives as the ideal counter to such things to kill the ninja who can use them in their sleep before they can try, and thus focus on not getting into a situation where they have to face such things in the first place.
    "...So whoever is doing this either has a lot of chakra to spare....or doesn't care about their life. You die if you overspend. But why attack three Genin alone two of which have civilian backgrounds....oh frack, I need to get out of here, I'm the most important figure here politically. If they're sending clones out like they intend to weaken us for the capture or the kill... Everyone fall back! Get out of the warehouse!"
    She begins running out
    "Right."
    Yuyuyu bashes a few clones aside with her umbrella to protect Usagi and tries to grab Usagi and jump so that they can move fast or help her move out of the warehouse. If the foe was spending their own chakra so recklessly, they didn't expect to live long, which meant they had a short term goal, and so was either kidnapping Kimiko or killing her since she was apart of a clan.

    Some ninja clans of course use their ninja pets in more disposable manners than others- this could be a short term pet to catch or kill a young heiress, bring them to some master who then escapes from the nation to ransom her or just use her bloodline to get their techniques, while the pet dies, no pet left as evidence. Not an entirely bad plan. Which meant getting away from living short term weapon, especially away from a dark warehouse full of places to ambush them. Its simply not tactically advantageous. When they get outside, Kimiko jumps up onto the roof to watch for any monkey coming out of the door so she can extend her paper blade using chakra and stab them from above without needing to jump down, catching them unawares.

    Usagi slap away Yuyuyu's hand, with glare of fury. "I am NOT helpless!" She grinned.
    "Actually! I'll protect the "princess"! I can do it alone, with MY friends!"
    Kimiko rubbed her the wrong way, and it pushed her to act recklessly. She tossed the crutches away, and jumped spinning in air, while biting her thumb.
    "Yojimbo-Samurai Rabbit In Training!" She called.
    https://i.pinimg.com/originals/f7/69...4d85abf804.jpg
    A warrior rabbit has apeared underneath her, exactly when Usagi were supposed to crash on the floor- she hugged his neck with her leg stumps, while she drawn her harp bow.
    "Sword, or just legs?" He has asked with setoic expriession.
    'Legs." Usagi said shortly. This code was simple- did Usagi wanted him to use his sword, or just to use him as her legs.
    A monkey tried to jump at her, but she quickly shot an arrow between the monkey's eyes.
    "Is he from the Monkey Realm?" Usagi has asked.
    "No. The smell of his chakra... just wrong Usagi-san."

    The monkey went into berserker mode. The expriement also involved implementing memories of a captured ninja human- which didn't added to the "mental health' of the dieing monkey.
    He spammed more and more clones- to destroy everything that distubed his territory.
    Some clones sneaked through a hidden window in attempt to surprise those on the roof.

    Kimiko
    She heards footsteps behind her and swings her paper blade at them, wheeling around as she does so.
    "They will just keep sending monkeys at us...But how to find them?"
    She couldn't just blindly run into the darkness, thats just a recipe for being ganged up by monkeys in the dark and dying. She couldn't throw explosives to smoke them out, the warehouse was full of the instruments they needed. There might be a lightswitch, but that could be just turned back off. She looks at the roof. She realized: she was standing on the problem...but she couldn't damage it too much, her Sensei wouldn't like that so. Kimiko uses her sword to stab through the roof at the center of the warehouse then cut out a hole to let in light while using her other hand to grab the cut out part aside so it doesn't fall on the instruments. She then takes a kunai and, puts a blank tag on it, then brushes a few a complicated looking scribbles on the tag with a few blurring brushstrokes

    She then lights the tag, yells
    "GUYS GET OUT! EXPLOSIVE TAG INCOMING!"
    then throws it down into the warehouse. If it wasn't going to explode at first, it was now- at least, to an outside perspective. In truth, the "explosive tag" wasn't explosive at all, it was a dud designed to make the monkey escape the warehouse- if it was ninja trained, it would recognize the appearance of an explosive tag, but like any ninja would not have time to check the tag in detail and thus would have to assume the worst and get out or die in case it wasn't a dud. Controlling the enemies movements through misdirection was one of the key parts of being a ninja.

    Yojimbk ran and hopped from place to place, while Usagi took down with her arrows more and more monkey clones.
    Then Yojimbo have noticed the "explosive" tag, and hurried outside. "Your friend seems to be quite reckless." He judged by less of a minute of indirect interaction.
    "She isn't my friend! She just a spoiled princess who trying to steal my glory!" Usagi said angerly.

    The monkey wanted to die. His whole existence was confusion, terror and agony. But infront of such a direct danger, his instincts outopiloted his body- he ran, with such as a speed he looked like a dark grey blur.

    Outside of the warehouse, under the light of the sun, the little monster was finally exposed- half meter tall babboon, filled with bleeding blackening infected injuries, and more then half of his body covered in black oil like, growing curse. It panted in pain, looking at it's enemies with bloodshot eyes. White musical note was tattooed on it's back and metalic tag clipped to it's ear.
    Usagi stared for just a short moment. "Hey! The warehouse didn't exploded!" While balancing her eight stringed bow, and prpearing eight arrows to aim at the monkey.

    Kimiko:
    "Baaaka."
    she snarks at Usagi as she turns around to face the monkey
    "The tag was fake. As if I'd actually blow up the instruments we need."
    She rushes forward towards the monkey as fast as she can. Battle was all about controlling the flow of it to your advantage, and controlling the flow was all about staying fast and on the offensive to keep your foe off balance. She sees the Sound headband on it, her mind registering that fact, as well as the various injuries, curse marks that her brother Jirou helped research at labs and talked about sometimes, and the maddened state of the monkey, she decided then and there...

    to kill the monkey anyways. Ninjas can't hesitate when things are heated, so they are taught to finish things fast when they cannot do it carefully. This monkey was a clear danger, and she had only a split second to act. Best put it out of its misery. Wondering why this happened, was a question for later. She jumps down, attacking with the Origami-No-Tsurugi like a rapier, thrusting forward with one hand and using Paper Extension Jutsu to stab even further with every thrust, a sword style developed by her clan to take maximize her paper weapons advantages of lightness, sharpness and variable range. But as she launches the first thrust, she flashbacks to the man she killed in the basement, just for a second- but no, she can't hesitate, she can't hesitate! She attacks despite the moment of hesitation, trying to kill the monkey as fast as possible.

    Yet for all her genius, she has made a couple of mistakes: one she took the time to banter, two she rushed into melee range of the enemy while an archer was aiming at them, and three she hesitated because of a memory. Yuyuyu looked at Usagi then at Kimiko and frowned as she considered her own umbrella. The fact that they both wielded melee weapons while Usagi was primarily ranged was going to be something to take into account.
    "By the kamis, you two are already getting in each other's way to kill the enemy...sigh..."

    Usagi wasn't much better. She didn't had issues to kill a monkey- many farmers don't have the privillige of considering animals's pain equal to their.
    She had a little piggy she liked, but when the piggy was fat enough, her mother told her to slaughter it- every girl, hoping to grow into a farm housewife needed to learn it.
    Of course, Usagi cried and hesitiated and only injured it.
    Her mother scolded her- her hesitation is more cruel then straight violence. It hurt more. Funny- Usagi remembered her piggy well, but her mother remained faceless in her memory.
    But Usagi had other issues. She allowed her feelings to cloud her mind, and to inferiority feelings as well.
    "You baka! You inbred princess, I'll deal with it!" And released eight arrows from the eight strings of her harp bow. The idea of this technique was simple- it was a way to attack faster targests. Of course, to get to the point of aiming decently was the hard part.
    "Usagi-San! Stop!" Yojimbo cried a moment too late.

    Scieincitfly speaking, the monkey was work of art. Having copied the muscle memory of the leaf ninja capitive- the monkey knew only two techniques, but had battle instincts of Chunnin Ninja.
    The monkey has dodged the paper rapier, while creating another two shadow clones.
    One of them, jumped at Kimiko's leg hugging and biting it, to hold her still, so Usagi's arrows will reach her.
    The other ran toward Usagi, circling Yojimbo with speed, planning to manuver them.
    The real monkey has ran on four, and climbed on pile of trash.
    At least, it seems he isn't focused on Yuyuyu at all.

    Kimiko:
    Note: The Origami No Tsurugi is not a rapier. Its a Tsurugi, a sword much similar to the chinese jian or straight sword.
    "Kuso!"
    She swears as this goes south, her blade working furiously to parry the arrows coming at her while she leans side to side to try and dodge, but even with these efforts two got through, one grazing her cheek as it passes by as if in slow motion, drawing a bit of blood in a cut- but the other hits her in the upper right leg.
    "Agh! you idiot! You shot me in the leg! Do you have ANY idea how much trouble this could make for both of us!? Your lucky I'm not telling anyone about this!"
    She stabs down with the tsurugi to poof the monkey clone, wincing a little in pain with every movement of the leg, blood running dripping down it as it bleeds from both bite and arrow, the shaft sticking out of her. Meanwhile Yuyuyu decides to keep her teammate from being attacked and whacks the clone monkey going for Usagi in the back to dispel it.

    Kimiko thinks: whats the next move? Its good enough to dodge the sword attacks. Usagi will shoot at it regardless like an idiot, so Kimiko can't chase after it, and now she has a wound and is bleeding. That is bad. Kimiko decides she needs to end this quickly so that combat ends and she can get this bandaged up. Stabbing the sword into the ground she flashes through a bunch of hand signs and takes aim at the monkeys head.
    "Paper Release: Confetti Assassination Jutsu."
    A small piece of her paper blade breaks off, about the size of a pebble then-ZOOM. It went flying at supersonic speeds, the small bit of paper as hard as a bullet from chakra enhancement to try and kill the monkey while it was facing away from Kimiko while climbing on the trash. Can't dodge if the projectile is faster than the eye can see and from behind. It was an instant kill move, the ultimate jutsu in her arsenal right now, and killing someone while their back is turned and focused on something else was a good time to use it.

    'You baka herself! Why are you running into my arrows, you useless princess?!' Usagi yelled back.
    Yojimbo sighed, but wouldn't argue Usagi in mid battle.
    She also noticed the escaping monkey, but couldn't join because it's clone jumped and bitten her back. She slammed it into smoke with her bow, but was late to join the attack.

    The monkey did get hit, and screeched with agonizing pain.
    he turned his face to the trio of Kunoichis, and started set of dreadful seals.

    the trio should recongnize it- the last shout jutsu.

    Kimiko:
    "KUSO! RUN!"
    She curses as she missed and what jutsu he is forming, apparently the monkey apparently moving fast enough to get their head above the confetti bullet just in time to not die. She then grabs her sword and sheathes it while running as fast as she can, putting all her chakra into her speed to get away from the attack running into the forest so that it at least aims away from the warehouse with Yuyuyu close behind, not bothering to stop for Usagi- Kimiko was of the opinion that anyone not smart enough to run from that attack deserved it, and anyone who can't get away from an attack like this probably shouldn't be in this line of business in the first place. While Yuyuyu remembers the last time she tried to help Usagi and only got a proclamation about how Usagi can handle it herself, so she respects her decision and trusts that she can somehow evade it herself.

    Turns out not being friendly to your teammates and refusing their help causes them to not help you when you might need it, who knew?

    Usagi was stubborn and aimed arrows at the monkey, anyway.
    Yojimbo was more sane- despite her curses, he jumped up, higher then what even ninja human normally would be able to, beyond the warehouse, when the monkey has exploded in terrifying soundwave explosions, which cutted ripples through the ground, woods and even the the pieces of the warehouse.

    'What the hell Yojimbo?!' Usagi said angerly.
    "Usagi-San... you were foolish. I am dissapointed at you.'

    he jumped back to see if his Master's allies were ok.

    Kimiko:
    Even at this distance, she knew she wasn't safe, but she was prepared nonetheless. Kimiko was sent falling to the ground from the blast, her still injured leg throwing off her reflexes and balance, a tree began to fall- but she managed to slice it in half with her blade so that the halves land on either side of her.

    Yuyuyu meanwhile puts her umbrella as a shield, channeling chakra through to shield herself from the sounds blast and the debris after it, the chakra-steel under the fabric holding sturdy. When the explosion stops, She then goes over to Kimiko and pulls out a kunai
    "Hold still, I'll get the arrow out. Its going to be painful, brace yourself."
    Kimiko nods as Yuyuyu grabs the arrow, then uses the kunai to dig into Kimiko's flesh and get the whole arrow out, Kimiko wincing and groaning in all the while. Letting an arrowhead stay in there was dangerous, and it was a delicate operation to make sure she didn't snap the arrow in half and make this worse. Once it was out, she started bandaging Kimiko to staunch the bleeding. Once that was done, she helped Kimiko up.
    "Thanks Yuyuyu. Its too bad we don't have a medic nin...I should figure out some kind of funijutsu for this, like healing tags, we have explosive tags, while not healing ones? Agh."
    Kimiko stands up. It was still painful, but she bears it without complaint. Pain was expected for shinobi, and not worth noting by itself.

    They walk back to Usagi.
    "Well then. At least the monkey is dead. Lets hope my family doesn't notice my wound, I'd hate to have to explain it and make Odayama-Sensei look bad to my family. I do not need my first day as a genin turned into a minor political squabble that could get people in trouble."
    Odayama was boring and lazy, and Usagi was an idiot in her eyes who was taking the most suicidal options on an already high risk career path, but they didn't deserve to their life ruined because of the concerns of nobility.
    "You really think your family would make a fuss out of you getting injured?"
    "Maybe. Noble clans have a history of being protective of their young since they represent the future of their clan. Keeping this quiet would be best, for all of us."
    "Easy way to hide that: Disguise jutsu into a version of yourself that is uninjured. Also useful for fooling people in battle that an attack did not affect you, to psyche them out."
    "Good thinking. What was this monkey doing here anyways? It knew leaf techniques, a sound technique, it had a sound headband, its something from our village? But then why'd it do this? It must've gotten loose without anyone realizing it."
    "Would a ninja-trained monkey even be able to get free without anyone noticing?" Yuyuyu says thoughtfully. Kimiko shrugs.
    "I don't know. Something to ask my brother when next I see him, he works in the Research labs so if anyone knows its him."

    Usagi was about to apologize, but then Kimiko's reaction pushed Usagi to her pride which were based on inferiority feelings.
    "Baka. I don't mind guarding delicate princesses, but I can't be held responsible if they jump into the fray!" She yelled angerly.
    "Usagi-San. This is not a way to apologize! Especialy to an ally!" Yojimbo has scolded her.
    Usagi said coldly. "You are free to go, Yojimbo." She wasn't very good at recieving critics either...
    Yojimbo sighed. "Summon me, when you are ready to listen." And dissapeared in a smoke- Usagi landed on one hand.
    "Eh. I think it's just the tradional test from our Sensei. We passed it. We can move on." Usagi said dismissivly.

    Kimiko:
    "Thats not the-...."
    She sighs a little, decides against arguing with her and massages her head muttering to remember what her brother Jirou said about noblesse oblige. She would just have to keep this idiot legless wonder away from her family, for Usagi's safety. Shinobi one may be, but if they're from a civilian background the clans often had the connections and the resources to screw them over, and she did not need a reputation for being one of those noble brat who abused their power by complaining to their clan about their problems.
    "Would they really just throw an attack monkey at us as a test? What would that even test us for?"
    "...be ready for anything? Like if your ready for a random monkey attack, your ready for anything more sensible and probable?"
    Kimiko stares at Yuyuyu eye brow raised for a moment.
    "....I guess thats as good an explanation as any. Whatever the reason for the monkey, the mission of playing that song at the club comes first. Lets get practicing."

    Hours Later:
    Yuyuyu comes walking up to the music club, confident in her stride while Kimiko holds the instruments needed in a scroll. She says at the door to any potential bouncers.
    "Greetings. We're here to play as a band. Can we come in, please?"

    [The Broken Record Club]

    The Broken Record are a group, who consist with big majority of shinobis. They have rebelliouse attitude, (even if the Ottokage openly admire them). They have rough and punkish style, openly support relationships which most society consider taboo, spraying logos on walls.
    Their leader, who only known as DJ Scratch, is officaly a Genin. But the common opinion, that he is as strong as Chunnin, he simply didn't bothered with the exams. His fans even clain, that he as strong as the Thunders Of The Sound.
    The Broken Record Club has few dozens members but their influence on the Sound Village's culture and slang can't be denied. It was found during the Indepdence War, from the most extreme members of the Sound Alliance with one step into the territotlries of anarchy.

    It's unclear how to join the Broken Record, but the core members are War Veterans, wether citizens wether Shinobis.
    The club was concerte building covered in graffitis. Loud music boomed, making any piece of glass in kilometer to vibrate.
    There were main entrance with heavy metalic door, back door at the back and a door to the kitchen. No windows


    The main door, which they tried right now, was guarded by a buff towering dark skinned man, with red muhawk, and shades. He was topless, his chest scarred and tattooed with ink black tiger.
    "No. It's not place for little children."
    Usagi tood at the back, letting Yuyuy handle it. She softened up during the reharses, but couldn't brave herself to aplogize forher earlier mistakes. But she deeply regreted it-
    Memories of her family, which she has shredded when she rushed to action haunted her- but she still played with skill.




    Shadowy Lurker
    Those silver spoon girls have survived the first ordeal. It matter little.
    They surely will cause chaos in the club, and if not they, someone else will.
    And then he will strike. Teach them of legacy of the Despair Generation.

    Yuyuyu:
    She smiles evilly at this.
    "I understand that a person of your stature has a reputation of toughness to maintain."
    Shes fishes a hand up her sleeve.
    "How unfortunate it would be then, if someone found out about what you did last tuesday, at 2pm when no one was looking."
    She pulls out a photo of him smiling while knitting pink bunny slippers, showing it to him and no one else.
    "Quite embarrassing for such a tough man, no? and if that is not enough, I also have evidence of you reading that one manga you love. What was it called again? Mairitoruponī 〜 Tomodachi Wa Mahō?"
    It was an oddly popular shoujo manga about unicorns and pegasi and the struggles of their nakama. She puts the photo back in the folds of her dress but in the chest area, knowing that if he wanted to take it by force it was going to look real bad for a grown tough man to trying to rifle through the dress of a thirteen year old around that area for anyone else watching.
    'So let us in, if you you don't want to be embarrassed or try to take it by force and be mistaken for something....dirty"
    Kimiko's eyes are wide partly because she was scared of how devious Yuyuyu was, and partly because she read that shoujo manga to and didn't want to admit it.

    The guard blushed in shame and gasped in horror. "What? How in the world have you gotten this intel?!" He seemed really stressed.
    He greeted his teeth. 'Fine. Get in, but I am not respoinsble for what is going to happen there!"
    Usagi was as horrified as Kimiko, though she didn't thought Yuyuy had anything on her: Usagi was a training freak, her life was cycle of trainings, eatings and sleepings. No social life, no hobbies. The closest thing for something human, was her dinners with Tsuru.

    "Woha. No handicaps." The guard tried to block her.
    "Shut up, Shujo-Boy." Usagi hissed, and followed the other girls.
    "Not bad Yuyuyu." She praised. Wether her words could be heard- was a diffrent question.

    Inside the music boomed even more, muffling any mortal conversation which weren't throat ripping roara and yells.

    About 50 partiers, much more fishnets than usual even for ninjas, strong stench of alchol, ultra purple lights which were disorienting, dozens of bodies pushing each other in trance of dance, there were a bar, where well curved and exposed woman served Sake.
    On the other side there were a stage, where trio of goth-ish bishi boys with heavy make up and shreds of uniforms sang, with a lot of swear words in their lyrics. Above them, there was a window, where a shadowy character moved handles and pushed buttons like master mind of conspiracy. For now in this marvelouse chaos, the early teen girl trio weren't noticed yet.

    Yuyuyu:
    Yuyuyu tsked as she goes in. He actually said that out loud. How unprofessional. She looks at the stage with the bishies and smiles.
    "Oh hey its that bishie band: Sigh and The Sauce 'Kay's. Cool, I like their music sometimes."
    Kimiko looks around and blushes a little particularly as she looks at the women serving sake. Her family never allowed her to come into a place like this. They would flip for sure if they knew! Kimiko honestly was not sure what to do interacting in a place like this. It felt so....impersonal yet close yet....blurry and overbearing and overwhelming. Give her a quiet library and a book any day over this....constant roar, she was just as socially isolated as Usagi.
    "Maybe we should....use disguise jutsu..."
    "Yeah, on second thought that might've been the better choice than blackmailing the guy..."
    "Or do we have to do this as ourselves so that our sensei knows it was us?"
    "Look we're in danger either way....."
    'Screw it, lets disguise ourselves as people who are...a bit older. versions of us, wearing gang-looking clothes, three or four years?"
    Yuyuyu nods. "Three or four years."
    They both make the hand sign and Poof! in little puffs of smoke they were suddenly older versions of themselves stood in their place. Enough to seem like they belong here with fishnets and rough looking clothing that was a bit revealing but still recognizably them, though Yuyuyu's disguise was more beautiful and daring. They wait until Usagi does the same, Yuyuyu goes over the barmaids and says
    'Hello, we're here to play music once Sigh and the Sauce 'Kay's take a break, y'know, substitution act, upcoming band, not real big, called....The Yelling Monkeys. Hope you'll enjoy it once we go on stage."
    Yuyuyu says, making it up on the spot remembering the monkey that they faced not too longer ago, figuring that it'd be temporary anyways. then wait further for the music to stop- any band must get tired after a while- so that they can go up on stage themselves while the goth bishie band steps down. After all in a club like this the music must always go on, and the same band can't always be playing. One has to take a break at some point, or for something to happen because of announcing her intention to play music here, either one works.

    Usagi does hand sings and change as well. Her illusions also included legs- careful observer will notice, some unnatural movements from her legs in this form. But in such wild party, this won't be an issue. Probably. But she couldn't stick to legless forms, she will get caught quite fast this way.

    Usagi, hair half dyed black, and she wear too big military coat, over a tank top over fishnet undershort. Though, in her imagination, she is still slim and quite flat and if to close the coat, could even be mistaken for a boy.

    "Oh, cuties..." The barmaid cooed, "It doesn't work this way. You had to sign about a month before the show. Better luck next time. Sake?" if any of them, even gave a hint of attraction to her, her tone and movements are much more flirty.

    A month? It doesn't sound.. real.. is it? there is the backstage room of course...



    The DJ Room

    Odayama sat by the side of DJ Scratch, (and if this was a manga, Scratch would have been a shilluote at this point of the story)
    "So, you can notice every one and one of the partiers? No wonder, you have managed to catch me all those years back..." sigh*

    "Eh, don't sweat it Odayama-kun bro! I am the cool guy, I'll just make sure no one will molest on your lil' girls you see? If they can force their way, I won't ruin it for them."

    DJ Scratch was sure, that this room was sound proof.

    But out of despair, Shinobis can pull terrifying feats that seems impossible.
