Reiyez & Kohaji (OPEN THREAD, you bozos. >->) 
26th-Sep-2006 05:22 pm
A manhole cover was innocently seated in its rightful space at the street, unbeknownst to the activity beneath it. That is, until it was suddenly and soundly kicked off from below, landing a meter or so away from where it originally was.
Reiyez hopped out first, standing up straight and looking around. This area seemed a little more innocent then the last bit of city they were in. The roadway was wide, but not busy, and at the right side of the street the edge of the city could be seen distantly if one got a good view between the rows of the buildings.

Not noticing any fierce assailants, he looked back down the hole and beckoned them.
"Looks like we're good. Probably went too far eastward, but at least we were going roughly the right way."
28th-Sep-2006 01:52 am (UTC) - Nina
Nina poked her head up afterwards and glanced around.
"Uhm... that's good." She said quickly, eager to forget the sights she had seen down there and attempted to get up.
You would notice, the keyword attempted.
Her grip slipped, being that she hadn't much of one in the first place and squeaked as she started falling backwards.

(OOC: One could note that she would fall on the last person to leave the sewers.... dun dun dun... XD)
28th-Sep-2006 05:22 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
Kohaji, more than ready to deal with this situation, quickly shifted out of the girl's way and grabbed her by the collar as she passed. He began climbing again, until he was stricken suddenly by a random heavenly telepathic message from yours truly.
The shock was enough to cause him to accidentally lose his grip on Nina and not really notice.

"Kohaji!" Reiyez called, looking down in shock. "What the hell?"
"I..." he began, blinking once. "...I've just been given an epiphone of knowledge from our god..."
"...What?" Reiyez questioned. "What was it?"
"Never mind."
"What do you mean?"
"Never mind..." Kohaji repeated, though he was rubbing one of his cheeks clean at a feverish pace with his free hand by this point.
28th-Sep-2006 10:37 pm (UTC) - Nina & ?
Nina yelped when she was caught, and yelped again when he let go.
Certain she was about to crash into the sewery waters below, she suddenly 'whoofed' as she was caught around the waist and set down onto her too feet gently.
"Be more careful please..." A soft voice whispered in her ear, and then the prescence was gone.
She blinked confused.
28th-Sep-2006 11:59 pm (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
Forgetting about Kohaji's enigmatic message, Reiyez looked around him and down to where Nina had fallen.
"Hey!" he called. "Hey, are you all right?"
Kohaji looked down, able to see her from where he was.
"She's... fine," he stated, obviously a little confused. Getting himself up and out of the sewer, he stepped out of the way and kneeled down.
"Can you come up?" he asked. "It's only abount ten rungs, and then you'll be close enough for me to pull you out."
29th-Sep-2006 12:27 am (UTC) - Nina & ?
Nina ignored Kohaji and Reiyez as she gaped.
'It couldn't have been...' She thought astonished, then glanced up at Kohaji's face, her expression torn.
"Forgive me!" She cried, bowed quickly then dashed after the form.

Circling the corner in the sewer, she came to a stop, and glanced around, helplessly.
"...Blade...?" She whispered into the darkness.

"You don't belong down in this darkness princess." A voice called out from the black. "Go back to the light. ...please."

"B-but-! You're-!" She began.

"Go. I promise. We'll see each other again. Soon." She blinked, confused again, and tears welled up in her eyes.

She took a few steps back, before turning and running back to the ladder, barely able to see past her blurred vision.

Which ended up in her tripping on a crack in the path, and sprawling to the pathway floor.
29th-Sep-2006 12:33 am (UTC) - Reiyez
Reiyez was about to go in after her, but then she had returned. Blinking once, he decided to hop down the manhole, landing beside her, and poked her figure a few times.
"Hey..." he said carefully. "You okay? What's the matter...?"
29th-Sep-2006 12:36 am (UTC) - Nina
Crawling into a sitting position on her knees she glanced at Reiyez with tearfilled eyes, then sobbed openly and clung to his shirt burying her face in it.

(OOC: That shirt ain't gonna get to dry for a while...)
29th-Sep-2006 12:47 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
(Seems so. o.o;)

Reiyez was confused for a moment, but the sympathetic gentleman in him (namely an old, pale, severely starved man with terminal heart cancer in the darkest corner of the back of his mind) allowed him to hold her to him for a while, letting the waters loose themselves on his shirt front as they pleased. Whatever reason she was doing this for didn't matter at the moment, but if she was going to get her ass in gear, she had to let it out.
"There, there..." he said sympathetically, patting her back a few times. "How come you're crying, Hibichan? We should go, it's a lot nicer up above ground."

Kohaji looked down with mild interest. He didn't think that Reiyez could respond to a crying girl so well. To be honest, he thought he would be scared of it...
29th-Sep-2006 12:50 am (UTC) - Nina
Quite simply, Nina ignored him as she continued to cry into his shirt.
"H-he's back!" She cried. "H-he came back b-but... h-he's not supposed to come back!" She weeped, hiccuping in between words.
29th-Sep-2006 12:53 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
"Who? Who do you mean?" Reiyez asked, running a hand over her hair in some attempt to soothe the sobbing young woman.
Kohaji began to listen with more intent.

(Gotta go. x-x Be back at, uh, 10:45-ish-ly. Some time that you'll probably be sleeping.)
29th-Sep-2006 12:57 am (UTC) - Nina & Jocose
(OOC: Kk)

"B-B-Blade!!" Was all she could say before she continued sobbing into his shirt.
"Saaaa...." A voice broke in as a dark form emerged from the sewer wall shadows.
"So this is where you got to, damn Gin, you really are a lazy prick." The newcomer commented, his long black hair went past his waist, and his cheery green eyes were alight with mischief as he walked over, hands in the pockets of his black pants. To acompany this was a white shirt with a black overshirt, leaving the forearm free to sight.
Stopping next to Reiyez and Nina, he glanced at her.
"So, you're the new recruit..." He muttered absently and looked her over. Then he glanced at Reiyez.
"And you're the poor sap Gin unloaded her onto?"
29th-Sep-2006 04:42 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
"Yep," Reiyez replied, without really denying that they were duped, given all of the crap they had just been in (literally) for the sake of this mission. He got himself to his feet, raising Nina up in a similar manner but not taking her away from him.
"I have a question, though; is the sewer the new cool place for you sly, supernatural people? I haven't seen half as many of you above ground.
"Question two: Just curious; do you happen to know the guy in black who controls some nasty form of fire and rapes people to death that we met a while ago in here?"

His run-on sentence betrayed his fear. Actually, he wasn't as afraid as he was annoyed of people popping up and interrupting an already unenjoyable trek through the streets and sewers.
30th-Sep-2006 04:57 am (UTC) - Nina & Jocose
Jocose tilted his head, then shrugged.
"The guy who was just here is... a potential new recruit, once he heard Nina was alive and here... he kind of... well I was tracking him, and here I am." He explained, shifting a bit on details and lowering his voice a bit in the part concerning Nina. Then he blinked.
"Guy in black? Dude... the black cloak is standard wear for our guys, that could be anyone, narrow it down..." He muttered.
"Although the rape to death... doesn't ring a bell." He muttered.
30th-Sep-2006 05:04 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
"Well, like I said, he controls some nasty form of fire. Likes to talk like he's the boss, too, and... mm..." Reiyez trailed off, scratching his head with a free hand.
"Well, he had some interest in Nina. Wanted her to come with him to start, but he let us keep her. Seemed a bit evil to me, but that might've jus been since I thought he was a serial killer... Or, well, the serial killer that was after people in the slums. But he claims he doesn't rip throats, so..."

Kohaji rested on one elbow now, looking down at the situation and fiddling with the medallion between his fingers. If this one tried anything, maybe it would work this time around...
30th-Sep-2006 05:06 am (UTC) - Jocose
Jocose moaned into his palm.
"Physical looks?" He demanded, then grabbed the twist end of his braid. "Hair color? Tall? Skinny? Looks like he just swallowed a spider on a lemon?"
30th-Sep-2006 05:18 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
"Um..." began Reiyez, now tapping his head. "You types are all tall and lithe, you know. I guess he was cool-looking, and yeah, he looked kind of like he had things on his mind... Oh, and dark hair, maybe not like yours. Couldn't tell in the light. It was stringy, though - semi-long."

(Sorry, took a while. o-o
5th-Oct-2006 11:08 pm (UTC) - Jocose & Nina
Jocose sighed and shook his head.
"True enough, I really need to talk to my god about that... anyway... okay working on what you've given me, he's evil and kills my sodomy... well that brings it to about 5 people, but 2 of them are girls, so it's limited to 3.
Long hair? Well... hmm... weird... that cuts out Calata... Eheckoeh fits the bill, Kyo is still in the dungeon. But Eheckoeh is under a mission with Rida, so who else could possibly...." He trailed off, then he swallowed, his eyes widened, his skin paled.
"Nina?" He croaked, Nina glanced at him for a moment through watery eyes.
"Not... him?" Jocose said in a hoarse voice and Nina nodded once and huddled closer to Reiyez.

Jocose stared.
Then whipped a silver object from his cloak, it fit around his ear and he immediately began speaking.
"Connection code 0001A." He waited patiently, his expression impatient, from across the line a soft but audible voice came.
"SAN." Jocose roared. "WE HAVE A FUCKING PROBLEM! HE is out!!"
6th-Oct-2006 12:12 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
Reiyez was a little unnerved by this. So apparently this shadowy figure even made other shadowy figures panicked... How close had he come to getting his ass kicked when he went to fight that guy?

"Can we continue this conversation above ground?" asked Kohaji, the streets around him littred with pirate corpses, two dead wyverns and several mutilated ninja logs. He wasn't sure what the man was doing talking to a piece of metal, but he was growing just a little impatient at the time...
6th-Oct-2006 12:18 am (UTC) - Jocose
Jocose, politely put, completely ignored Kohaji.
He paused as the voice continued.
"Huh? The new guy? Lost him, Nina's here though."
More silence.
He grew pale.
"I MUST WHAT??? BABYSITTING IS SO NOT MY GEIST! GET THAT FUCKER GIN BACK HERE TO DO THE-" He paused, then his eyes widened. "WHAT DO YOU MEAN WOMANLY PROBLEMS?? " He snapped. "GIN'S NOT A...." Jocose now froze.
".... you're shitting me."
All horror forgotten, he burst out laughing.
"Okay, okay fine, I'll babysit... oh god..." Jocose got out between gasps of laughter as he bent over double, nearly falling into the sewer waters.
When he had finished laughing, the piece of metal went back into his pocket and he grinned at Reiyez, still laughing.
"A-anyway... I'm you're new babysitting partner, nice to..." He only got that far before collapsing to the ground, trying desparately to breath.
6th-Oct-2006 12:22 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
Reiyez was perplexed, probably for the better.

"...All right, then. Welcome aboard, pal." He loosened Nina from him, looking up the hole. "We'll be right up, Kohaji. I think..."

Kohaji, knowing exactly what the newcomer was laughing about, nodded a little but was looking away rather awkwardly...
6th-Oct-2006 12:26 am (UTC) - Jocose and Nina
Without breaking stride from his laughing, Jocose slowly got to his feet and held his hand out to Nina.
"Damn girl, I wish I had seen Gin.... what did h... she look like? Was she hot?" Jocose asked grinning mischieviously. Nina blinked, then glanced at Reiyez.
"I... I'm not sure." She said taking his hand and standing, tear tracks on her face drying. "Mister Reiyez?" She asked turning to him. Jocose grinned.
"Oh, sorry, forgot to introduce myself, name's Jocose, member of the Exile Empire, both holy and not so much, yep, Ten'yo, just like yourselves I'm betting, and if you want to kill me get in line, you're at ticket holder number 207." Jocose said cheerfully.
6th-Oct-2006 12:54 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
He was starting to get suspicious.
However, he ignored it. "Reiyez," he replied, taking his hand and shaking it for a moment. "Up there's Kohaji. We're Ten'yo of the Collective of Nei'tsu. Wouldn't be surprised if you haven't heard of it, though. And I've got no reason to kill you, unless you're a good fight... But anyway, let's get up to surface, I'm getting a little sick of the smell here..."
6th-Oct-2006 12:59 am (UTC) - Jocose and Nina
Jocose grinned.
"Good fight maybe, I've been slacking lately so I might be rusty, nice t'meet you both." Jocose then nodded.
"Agreed, what were you guys doing down here anyway?" He asked as he motioned for Nina to climb on his back, the began making his way up the ladder.
6th-Oct-2006 04:21 am (UTC) - Reiyez
"...Long story," Reiyez waved off, coughing once and following behind them. "It definitely wasn't in the main plan, though. But I guess we can be glad for it, else we woulda met more weirdos, I'm sure..."
12th-Oct-2006 01:56 am (UTC) - Lynch
"I shan't argue with you on that subject," came a gravelly voice from the shadows. Out stepped a man in a black trenchcoat. He had short black hair and a scar shaped like a cross on his left cheek. On his back he carried a large black metal crossbow, which he drew and aimed. There was a clip of twenty arrows latched on, arranged so that the crossbow was capable of multifire without having to reload. To make it look more uncuddly, it had a serated harpoon on the end for close combat.

Without another word, he fired an arrow straight at the girls head... which it grazed past and burried itself into the throat of a man carrying an axe who semmed to have stepped out of the shadows at the same time as the crossbow wielder and was raising said axe over girls head before the arrow hit. After that, some chuckling arose from the shadows and similar shapes emerged.

"Sewer bandits," the figure said nonchalantly as he fired an arrow into the shoulder of another bandit. "Probably noticed the water getting purified and figured anybody who would even bother with that would be a noble and came right after you."

He gestured to the ladder. "Move, I'll hold em off." He fired another shot and hit a bandit in between the eyes.

"Dammit!" He cursed, "I was aiming FOR his eye!"
