It was a warm 8:30 evening this thursday night. The stars were making their constellations and the cresent moon was bathing the trail in moonlight, making long shadows creep onto the path and showing demonic faces in the soil. The grass was slowly swaying as a gentle wind pushed them to the left. Almost typical for a night in the Sound Village in summer. Being bordered with the leaf village the sound shared many geographical traits such as tall trees and lots of grass. But it was easy to tell the difference, since Otogakure had always been known as also the rice field country, and it showed as there were fields of Oryza Sativa was everywhere to be made into rice. The trail had been long and winding, running for towards the Fuuma Alley, which was always known to be a very adult place. Out here it was peacefull and you wouldn't think there was a strip club down the road.

He was walking with a mirthful face tonight. Almost blending like a shadow on the trail, the moonlight caused his pale skin to glow white as he traveled calmly down the street. Occasionally he'd smirk as if somebody had told him a funny joke or something. There was definitely something off about him making him smile like this. It was like he was listening to a good friend, captivated by whatever the imaginary person said. If only you knew.

''Really now. I doubt that man will bug us again!'' Shinji laughed as through his eyes he saw the young girl giggle in her own fit of laughter. The Nothing was a very shy soul, but she was always comfortable beside her protector. They were sharing the story of what they had done today. It had really been an accident at first. Running into a drunk on the street there had been a chase, with the drunk running after them claiming the boy to have stolen his money....even though the wallet was strapped to his belt. Ending with the man falling off a very tall building, the drunken fellow had fallen into a lady's laundry and the pair had witnessed the man's beating by the old woman who owned it.

''I could see the rage! She used the purse like a katana! Ki-yah!'' Asagi cried out, making a karate pose to prove her point. She wobbled and nearly fell but floated just in time to avoid the ground. ''And the man was screaming like a baby!'' She giggled as Shinji remembered it and snickered hiself.

''I'm glad we left that village now. They who drink beer will think beer.'' Shinji replied as he kept walking, the Nobody floating behind, her long gray hair floating with the warm night air. The two were almost at Fuuma Village gates. Spotting the lights ahead, Shinji reminded the girl. ''Now I hear they sell sweet rice here and instant ramen. We'll need that for the trip.'' He reported as he began to walk at a brisk pace. The Nobody nodded. Her gray eyes rested on the lights and she seemed a little nervous. ''Are you sure it's safe there?'' she asked quietly. Shinji sighed. ''I'm hoping so. We need a hotel tonight.''

To anybody that had been watching the scene, those would only witness a seemingly 13 year old boy in a top hat and cloak talking to himself. ^_^

ooc: ooh! AWESOME first topic man! oro's gonna be in that pub...
Orochimaru sat on a bar stool reclining slightly as he drank a tall bloody mary. He gazed around smiling to himself that nobody had even recognized him. You see, Instead of wearing a mask like he usually did, he appeared to be a young 13 year old boy, much like shinji, if a little older. The only reason that he wasn't being given a second thought about drinking was because, well, frankly, nobody gave a damn! on some days you could see 5 year old running around with cans of Canadian import beers!

ooc: Heh thanks. And lol canadian imported beers in Naruto. How did they ever get those?

In Character:
As the pair traveled, the evening sky darkened even more around them. It brought them a sense of what was to come. Nearing the red lights ahead Shinji checked on Asagi one last time, to find her trembling a little. How timid the Nobody was, for a spirit of such divine power. The thirteen year old remembered that it was given to her from the neglect of his ancestors who died from the consequences of being gifted with immortality. Slowing his pace a little he held her hand so she wouldn't need to worry about lagging behind. A small smile of thanks came from his ghostly companion, of which was returned with a polite nod. Approaching the guards of this village Shinji recognized the Fuuma crest gleaming on their uniforms. Interesting equipment they have don't they Asagi? He thought to the Nobody, of which answered with a yes.

One guard stiffened and began to address Shinji. Shinji didn't think twice about handing the tall man a scroll containing false info on his heritage and an ID. The guard tossed it to his partner, who read it thouroghly before bowing to the boy and letting him pass through. Shinji was handed his scroll back and the pair proceeded into the main street.

It was filled with the same things found in most downtowns. Vendors, beggars, commoners, rich peoples, kids and of course casino owners. Casinos were everywhere, resembling las vegas in their splendor and overdecoration. Desparate for attention Shinji decided as he pushed through a crowd of buisnessmen and some vulgar old men who asked for his name. Black eyes searched for a more secluded place to stay, and their traveling increased speed as they weaved through the crowds and started to maneuver towards the shadows. Crossing a street Asagi pointed to an alley which smelled of alcohol and drunks. Shinji nodded and took the route. Usually the path in those alleys lead to the shadowy parts of town. Running through the puddles of broken liquor bottles and cocaine containers, the 13 year old rounded a corner and nearly slid on a piece of glass. Not even a bit distracted, the pair bounded through the twisting maze and then finally fell out of a narrow corridor before ending up on a street where the whole place reaked of alcohol.

Picking up his top hat from the cobblestone floor, Shinji and Asagi made a beeline for an old and secluded pub. Knocking on the door a small eyehole opened up and a loud voice boomed. ''What do we have here?'' The 13 year old calmly recited the words he had saved for places like these. ''No small talk, just want something to drink.'' In a matter of seconds Shinji was inside. Accidentally the door shut on Asagi. Asagi made a small hmph and floated through the door into the heavilly crowded tavern. In an instant she was biting her lip in a fit of nervousness, although she couldn't be seen by anyone but Shinji. Passing by more beggars and raggedly clothed 5 year olds drinking foreign beer, Asagi flew and whispered in Shinji's ear. ''This place is loaded with creeps. Why did you insist going to such a dark building anyways?'' She quietly asked. ''I want to get an inn tonight Asagi. And if we go anywhere out in the open we might be noticed by the guards. Trust me, how long is it gonna take before they figure out that scroll was fake?'' Shinji whispered back. ''These guys are all probably bums or missing-nins too. They won't have known us. Besides, our missing-nin status isn't known by many people yet. Remember, it's only the grass village that knows of us so far....''

Shinji had reached to the front of a bar and climbed up onto a bar stool with only some difficulty because of his height. Asagi found a good spot to sit on the counter. The bartender waltzed up, thinking of Shinji as a high-paying customer from a circus because of his clothing. ''What'll it be chap? Sake...ale...regular old draft...'' The man listed before Shinji interrupted. ''Water. Don't spike it. Trust me, I'll know if it's spiked...'' He winked at Asagi, who winked back. It looked like he winked to the bartender, who made a small surprised face before turning to get the drink.

Starting to hum amazing grace, Shinji looked around the pub, figuring out what to do next.

Orochimaru glanced over at the boy who had just came in and gave him a rough nod of "Hi" and went back to drinking the bloody mary... however, he stopped just before the liquid touched his lips. a second later, the glass was on the floor, broken in a hundred pieces. Orochimaru clutched his throat, unable to make a sound. His throat burned like he had just swallowed thousands of fire ants. His drink had been spiked with an acid-type chemical.

Changing the tune to a completely different song, Shinji's black eyes scanned the faces around here. If time came, he would need to know which seemed the most trustworthy and who could be friend or foe. The boy was relaxed as Asagi slowly rocked back and forth in a bit of boredom, nervously checking if anybody was wanting to harm. Fretting was common for her though and Shinji casually rested his hand nearer to her, and her pale hand extended and held on to his wrist. A very cold touch, but nothing that couldn't be adjusted to. As the thirteen year old looked around the many faces, he noticed a boy his age sitting near him. The boy seemed laid-back....as if he was hiding something. Not able to tell what, Shinji stared a while until the guy glanced at him and made a nod for a greeting.

As customary of a person with their share of etiquette, Shinji nodded back in answer, Asagi nervously nodding as well but not being seen. Just as he began to get settled now, out of the corner of his eye he saw the kid halt at his beverage. The glass broke free of his grip and dropped into pieces on the wooden floor, spilling it's contents on the ground. Some, but not many, began to get up, a quarter of them actually worried. The liquid left steam as it splashed on the ground, and some of the wood was turned to a hideous stain. Shinji realized the alcohol had been spiked! Not knowing what to do, he turned to Asagi in shock. ''What do I do?'' He cried out to the Nobody, which also made head turns. ''I'm not sure!'' She replied in shock as she floated to the kid who was clutching his throat in pain. ''I'll try to asorb it.'' Asagi said before floating inside Orochimaru.

Not one word came out of Shinji. His face held a look of fear, his mouth closed but eyes wide. It had been a while since he had to deal with these situations. A thought-message from Asagi entered his mind at that moment. I've asorbed the acid. It won't hurt me but it's up to you to heal him. Shinji nodded and made a beeline to the boy. Calming hiself down, he concentrated on his chakra now. His chakra collecting into his palm, an aura of bright blue chakra covered his hand. This wasn't going to be easy, since Shinji hadn't been the best at medical jutsu. His mind had to remain focused now and he carefully placed his chakra-covered hand at Orochimaru's throat where the acid had done it's damage. Really focusing on this, he began healing the wounds. Asagi floated out of Orochi and flew outside where she coughed the acid out. This task was almost complete. Shinji finally cleared the wound and stepped back, ready for the boy to waken.

''He should be fine now.'' Shinji muttered as some people began to sit back in their seats, acting as nothing had happened. Still, some heads were turned to watch.

Some man in the crowd, who was genuinely concerned, cried out in jubilation: "DEAR SWEET GOD HE SAVEd THE OTOKAGE!" Cheers rang out from the crowd. "My... god... thank you boy!" Orochimaru came over to the boy. "Listen... meet me at the village meeting place tomorrow at three... You deserve the highest honour i can offer..."
