I can smell people. We had headed west after getting here. I remember passing this village. Caotang if I remember correctly. I don't interact much with the locals. Bu tht eones I did. I remember this name being mentioned. I scrunch my nose at the smell of livestock. I step onto the path as it appear and I look ahead, seeing the sprawling farmlands. If we travel a bit more northeast we will find my shelter. We'll be heading there next, but first we need to get some more supplies. Our food is running low after two days of traveling. Ghost trots ahead, he and Mittens seeming to get along a bit more nicely than before. Or maybe they have realized they have to tolerate one another for the time being.

I blink as we walk. No one is on this path. Odd. Usually there are tons of traders moving in and out. But now its deserted. I stop and look around us. Something ain't right. Ghost stops by something and growls. I move closer and look down. My eyes fall on the huge paw print he is standing in front of. "I don't like this.." I say softly, crouching down. "Huge feline. I mean huge.." I say to Penny and slowly straghten myself, eyes flicking around. "Not just one. This is probably why this trade road is empty. The beasts were probably pouncing on the livestock and cause mini stampedes.."

Thoughts continued to gather on just what had occured back there. He'd saved her cat from the spider. Although the cat may have inside itself thought that it could have handled the spider. But that wasn't the case, least not in his eyes. He didn't really want to risk it. But it wasn't that he was thinking about. It was the sheer oddity of what she had done. He was an oni. Not someone or something that was used to things like that. Human contact or kind touches. Never mind those small kisses. But there was the stop again. The smell of humanity. Old humanity drifted into his nostrils. The smell of horse manure, it brought back shadows of memories.

And yet, there was something else on top of that. Something that he couldn't quite touch on. However it seemed that both Mittens and ghost had pciked something up about it, no matter how small or simple it was. And Shiori seemed to catch onto it first. The roads were quiet. Empty. Far too empty for a trade road. He bends down and examines the paw print that ghost is looking at. Its large, but not as large as some he'd seen. It wasn't a demon. That much they had to be thankful for. His eyes for a second turned to cat like slits. As he let out a grin.

" Felines eh....that I can deal with..."

His shadow covers mine as I look down at the paw print. I fick my eyes around us and I see flecks of blood on the pth closer to he forest. An animal got attacked. Ghost looks a bit ruffled. His animal senses are picking up on the of us being here.

"Looks like have been using this road as an easy hunting ground.." I say as I look toward the forest. I go to step toward it when a voice calls out. I turn my head and see one of the farmers approaching, looking scared but with a need to warn us. I stop and allow him to approach.

"You have to get off the path.." he is panting as he says this. I arch a brow. He thinks we are in danger. But I'm willing to listen. "The tigers of evil are back. Even our priest fell prey. Come. I will give you both shelter.." he offers and I hold up my hand.

"Any reward for getting rid of them?" I ask. I am a bit poor right now. The farmer is shocked but then he is looking hopeful.

"All I can given is my talents atskinning, my lady. Many of us are poor," he replies and I nod. Hmm... a tiger pelt. That would be cool. I shrug and look at Penny.

"You up for some tiger hunting?"

    There was something preying on people on this road that much was bvious. He would have been able to tell without the blood. Mittens was having the same reaction as Ghost. And because of her connection with Penny. He could feel something along the same lines as well. Although it was a lesser feeling. More of an Oni sense than an animal one. Aniamls could sense danger. Oni could sense predatorial instincts. One predator knows another. And Penny was almost lost in staring at that paw print. A man approached. On the edge of his senses. He was fille with fear. Not predator. But prey. He started talking about Tigers. Ones that not even the priests from around here could hunt down. Not that the word priest in his mind meant hunter. But he knew different cultures had different definitions of priest. Most meant holy man. But not all holy mmen were the robe and quiet prayer types. Some of them were rather fierce.

    Then again. It took something fierce to hunt something fierce. He smirked slightly as Shiori began discussing payment for them hunting the beasties own. Ever the business woman. Of course for that he couldn't really fault her. Expecting reward for placing their lives on the line was quite right. After all. Very little came for free. However the man appeared to be poor. However he offered his skills as a tanner and skinner. A tiger pelt. Would probably be nice for some kind of rug. Or maybe for an inner fur lining to one of his jackets. Winter was coming up and an inner fur lining woul be good for keeping out the cold.

    "....From you I would expect that question to be asked...".

    He smirked looking up at her as he stood. " Up for some hunting tiger?".

I grin michiviously as he returns the question. I should be good and not put myself in danger.. but to hell with it. I need a stress reliever and we do need to train a bit. Bring on the tigers I say! I turn toward the forest and the farmer is sputtering, as if not believing that I am seriously going to go hunt.

"Come on, Pen and Ghost," I chirp and walk toward the forest.

Ghost gives me a 'You're shitting me, right?' Look and I grin. I walk over and pluck him up off the ground not seeing the look he send Mittens. I would see 'This bitch is crazy' if I payed attention. I hold him in my arms and hum as I walk into the forest.

It was just like the cigarette. She wanted to do this as a stress reliever. Killing as a stress reliever. Sounded a bit too Oni for her. But then again. Such things were the way humans worked as well. It was doing a community service if nothing else. At least she'd be able to justify it to herself in that way.

He watched her begin to walk off and start the hunt. This was the past. So, it wasn't going to be a problem revealing his other form. He stretched his shoulders as darkness began to float off the top of his body. His skin turned ashen and black. The smoke like darkness shrouded most of his body, his face replaced by a mask. His eyes glowing an errie yellow. He breathed out and looked at Shiori.

" Hope you don't mind, I'm just stronger in this form....just in case these tigers are more of a problem than we might think".

I look over my shoulder as Penny speaks and I blink at his new form. The farmer goes running off and screaming about evil. I snicker a bit and continue walking. The smell of the forest surrounds me and I feel Ghost tense in my arms. Looks like the tigers haven't travel far from the main path. I don't mind the new form that Penny has taken. Its kind of cool looking. But it definitely shows his oni nature. I think back to the days of me hunting oni down. Though all of them were ones without a human form like Penny has. Saonzon is the only Kami I have met with a human form also.

I stop for a moment after walking for a bit. I look around. The forest is quiet. A bit too quiet. My eyes flick around us. The tigers have to be near. This is a sign simply from the nature around us. Ghost hisses softly and I set him down, Jigoku swirls into appears in my hand and I grip the hilt. "Come out kitty kitty," I call out.

    She seemed rather comfortable with his new form. Which was good. He doubted that she would have seen many Oni take this kind of form. After all they usually liked to traverse in the power that was their beastial form. Large shapes meant more damage. Well. Area damage. The way Penny thought of it was that if he needed to kill one specific enemy it was easier to focus his power in the one area on them exactally rather than cause a wide spread devistation that ould kill lots of surrounding people but leave the fate of that person questionable. Of course. Not that many Oni actually cared, most just wanted to kill as many humans as was possible. Besides. This humanoid form was the perfect disguise for his lordship, and his human guise of Wiseman.

    Mittens jumped for a second, just as Penny's own eyes turned to the right, only in time to see a large orange and black figure baring down on him from the bushes. " Oh ballo-". The creature piled into him. Its weight and the speed of its charge were enough to barrel even him over at this point. It raised its paw, ready to rend into his flesh. But his own mind snapped into action. His training in martial arts and Judo bum rushed into his head and allowed him to push everything else out. He placed a foot onto the tigers stomach and with one swift kick pulled on the fur of the tigers muzzle. Flipping it over his head and onto the Tigers back. He flipped back up, and looked at the animal. It growled at him. Pulling its claws into the ground. He dusted himself off and looked back at it....eyes staring into eyes.

    Mittens however seemed to be taking the side lines on this fight. She knew when she was outmatched....there were other growls...as more tigers stepped out into the grounds.

I hear a crash behind me and my eyes widen at the sight of Pen with a tiger on top of him. It would be comically if this wasn't a life or death situation. I smile as he give the tiger a nice little flip. But it fades as I hear the growling surround us. I blink and look around, seeing as eyes peer at us all. I bring forth Reirei in my other hand and hold both blades in a defensive position. One guarding my back and the other my front. A tiger stalks out bravely toward me and I can feel the feral side of me grinning in excitement. My very blood is shivering in anticipation of a fight. This is the side I learned to control and discipline. Kyrojin waits for his turn and I can picture him seated idly, kicking his feet with that smile on his lips.

I shift my stance, digging my heels a bit into the dirt of the forest floor, seeking that extra balance. The tiger snarls loudly and Ghost hisses at it. "Don't do anything stupid, Ghost," I say to the tim cat. He seems to nod in response and then streaks forward, gaining the tiger's attention for a split moment. I move then and strike hard and fast. I seem to appear behind the tiger as it falls, blood splattering into the air and speckling the ground around its body before it hits. [hidden strike]

    There was the tiger in front of him, however in the corner of his eye he saw the flash of light reflecting from Shiori's swords. More growls meant more tigers. Which meant more killing. He grunted. Deciding that he couldn't just have his fun with this one, he'd have to take out a few of them now and with some speed. He had a good knowledge of the martial arts, and physical fighting arts now. And would likely be able to use them to take down some of these tigers. But if he was going to be making a real impact on them then he'd have to unleash the magic in his arsenal. Shiori hadn't really seen the extent of his powers. Even under the influence of the drums. He'd never showed her anything beyond the basic powers of an Oni such as flight.

    Still the shadow magic would be an advantage, particularly with its range and tenaciousness. The tiger in front of him dived at him. He shifted his weight to the left. The tiger moved past him, barely by a hairs length. Even his Onihume enhanced flesh would be harmed by those claws. That and if these tigers wern't showing up on his senses. Then that meant there was the possiblility that those claws would have mmore of an effect beynd the physical. He snapped his body back from the weight shift and smashed the side of the tiger with his elbow. Thrusting it back into a tree. He rushed in. Raising up his leg and dropping his heel onto the tigers skull. He heard a loud crack. And the exhalation of a death gasp.

    He turned. The darkness rushing around him as he raised his hand. " Cut and devour, shadows of hell". A large pool of darkness opened up below another tiger. A large wave of dark energy rushed up, cutting from within, slicing all with the cold and horrible power of the shadows and darkness under Pennywise's command. It'd be the first time she'd see him capable of magic under such a way. The shadows began to fade and there wasn't really much left of that particular tiger. However he doubted that after Shiori was finished with the others much of the same could be said. Mittens just simply sat on,looking at the side lines, wondering just what Ghost was going to do, if anything. The Tom cat was larger than she was. However he was still small in comparison to the tigers.

    Pennywise swept his hand out. The smoke began to disipate around him.His skin returning to its previous tanned colour.He ran a hand through his hair, then reached into the inner lining of his glove. He removed two cigarettes. He was going to let Shiori kill her share of the tigers...but as an added bonus. " Well Shiori...when your done with your share....I've got one for you too...". He popped one in his mouth and lit it up. Addiction and temptation. You just had to love it.

I tilt my head from side to side and my neck cracks. I twitch my nose, relaxing now almost instant now that their is blood in the air. Jigoku and Reirei are cautious now. They know me. Know I have to be careful with my power. I feel my shouchou activate, the scrawling markings covering my flesh in pink hued lines that tattoo my entire form. I close my eyes for a moment and I feel my power roaring in my ears. My eyes open slowly and I follow the movement of my next opponent. [Speed of Syte]

The tiger thinks to come at my unguardded back. But I am never unguarded. No. I have power I keep to myself and do not show a soul. "Sanctus Espiritus. Awaken. Destroy..." I whisper into the air as it grows cold and then my shadows slithers up my form and settles on my back and the tiger is skrewed on a spike of dark power that gains eyes and then a form of a fox, my dark beast having turned its tail into a sword. It retracts its tail and the tiger falls to the ground, twitching as it drowns in its own blood. [Chaotic Familiars] I smirk lightly and flick my eyes to Pen, the chocolate hues looking a bit crimson as I use these dark powers.

"Good. Because this is like sex for me," I quip and turn as the mate of the tiger I just killed lunges at me. I bring both my blades in front of me, crossing them. I then snap them out, power coming off both and the air itself becomes my blade and the tiger falls to pieces just before reaching me, blood staining me now. [Sonic Slash] I roll my eyes and look at the two tigers not too harmed from our attacks then at Pen.

I walk over and hold out my hand for a cigarette, slight smirk on my lips. "Think you can haul those two back then?"

    He quickly handed over the girl the cigarette and the lighter then looked over at those two tigers. " My my, leaving all the work to the man are we?". He shrugged. " Typical but not unexpected". He moved back over to both tigers, and grabbed them by their respective tails. They were heavy...he wasn't going to deny that..but he didn't really care. He was happy with the days work. Dragging of the tigers towards the nearby settlement fresh for skinning alive. He smoked and took a draw. Whistling through the side of his mouth whilst puffing away with his cigarette.

    Mittens rushed over to his side and started prodding along with him to the beat of the rhyme....

    " Com'on...lets get these damned Pelts already before the weight of these things does my back in".

I take the cigarette and snatch the lighter also. Within moments I'm inhaling the sweet addictive smoke. I nearly moan in pleasure. My blood is singing and I really need to calm down before I like.. Go fuck something. But the image of Jyn flickers in my mind and it kills all my sexual appetite. I nearly go and snuff out my cigarette in distaste. My eyes watch Penny and I smile a bit with his comments. I shrug and follow along as he drags the felines. We scared any others away with the slaughter of quite a few of their comrades.

I hum softly as he whistles and I spot the farmer peeking out from behind a fence. I run over, grinning. "Problem solved.. Time to pay up," I chirp. the tigers are lovely and I think I'll make a cute belt for myself to wear out a bit of the fur. The farmer is pale faced but sees the dead bodies and nods quickly. He mutters something about being cursed if he doesn't keep his word. Odd fellow. But I look at Penny and roll my eyes. Ghost keeps looks back at the forest and it makes me look also. The tigers are gone... For now at least.
