Kengo in reaction to Kiro's reply jumps backwards when he lands and closes the ground against this time with a jump towards the wall he pushes off of the wall for some height and comes falling down toward Kiro blade falling towards Kiro's face.

Eyes went on a slit, he spots the hitting point. Other hand on his katana's mune*** for support, Kiro lifts the blade in time to null the attack. With a grunt, he pushes his weight forward, to afford a space between him and his foe..... right foot on quarter-plant to keep his stance grounded & sudden lunge within a second, successfully handing a nick by the man's cheek. A very small cut, but a warning nevertheless.

Kengo bounces back and stumbles a bit catching himself. "Heh heh HA HA HA HA HA see I knew I liked you." Kengo wipes the blood from his face. With that he sheaths his sword and quickly draws his naginata. Spining it around him twice he takes a different stance. As he looks past Kiro he sees someone stopping and looking down the alley to see what's going on. Running towards Kiro he uses the naginata and kicks up a bit of dust when Kiro covers his eyes with his sleeve Kengo uses the naginata to pole vault a plahimabove Kiro placing his feet on Kiro's shoulders he stays there for only a split second. "Follow me before we draw a crowd." He hops in front of Kiro and waves to follow with his hand.

Kiro's face held no emotions, while he witness his opponent's change of weaponry and his movement. No comment upon comment.... simply none.


The murmur from behind, never was lost to his senses. He knew eventually, they'd rouse up some passersby due to the ongoing festival. If anything, that supposition was further confirmed with the roaring of crowds, music and fireworks from not too far a distance.


A small nod......... and he follows.

Kengo leads him deeper into the maze of abandoned alley shops, until arriving at what appeared to be an old plaza of shops a wider area, a few homeless scatter off to avoid trouble and potential cops. "Here's a bigger play pen for us to really let loose in." Kengo rushes Kiro again still showing no signs of fear or hesitation.

His tailcoat flapping in the wind, Kiro follows. Had he been a lad of his early years, he'd have repeatedly questioned the purpose of this fight. But experience, life, and the manner of code he adheres to..... these things had molded him to the man that he has become. And at this very moment, at a much closer inspection, even unbeknownst to his own self, his spirited blue eyes betrays the blankness of his countenance.


He halts a few steps behind, as the fox man declared the stop.


As if on cue, Kiro's right boot grinds down the dirt.... easing to the back, and maintaining the simple gedan no kamae stance. Blade held low, just beyond the knee.


He waits...... eyes partly closed....... his opponent comes.

With wild excitement in his eyes kengo closes the gap. He plants a foot and does a spin to build momentum then steps forward bringing Kiro into the built up slice arc in front of him. The sound of the blade cutting through the air silent except to the attuned ears of the warriors, to them it sounded like crashing thunder in the distance. signifying the coming storm that was to be this bout.
Posted 2/24/15



Kiro waits..... the heavy whoosh-whoosh-whooshing sounds of the naginata stirring in his ear.


Reaching within the man's cutting distance, his eyes suddenly shot open. A quick diagonal raise of the blade to the right, barely blocked the fox man's weapon from slicing his head.... and with his eyes meeting his opponent's on a momentary deadlock, the rest became a flow of flexible limbs and dancing blades.


....... the naginata makes a reverse-rotation........ the katana rotates and blocks........

........ Kiro makes a smooth bend and a turn of his leg to take out his opponent's stance..... the other jumps and evades.......

........ the fox man's weapon goes for a sudden low swing....... Kiro's right hand makes a quick shield with his blade and a push........

........ Kiro makes a quick roll to the side to get back up, followed by a quick move of his right shoulder to the side, avoiding the piercing blow a mere inch off from the naginata's sensaki***........

........ the fox man advances his steps with an onslaught of high.. low... rotate... high and low swings ..... Kiro blocks with his katana, lifting in angles to complement those swings.... pacing backwards, knee on a quick genuflect, as his opponent tries for a horizontal cut........



As the other lifts his arms for a high-perched attack, Kiro took advantage. A step forward, he counters the offense with a brisk upward block & a propel, and counting on his opponent's maneuverability, he flicks his wrist..... the hilt of his katana facing ahead.... and just as he's about to hit the fox man on the mug, as suspected, the other moves his head back to steer clear, giving Kiro that small opening.


With the naginata on a vertical stasis, he turns his weapon around.... crosses the blade with the wooden shaft...... and with a grunt, Kiro drives his weight forward....... pushing his opponent off-balance with advancing steps.... releases the pressure placed on the shaft...... and about to execute a Kesa-giri cut****, just as he sees the other landing down.

Kengo in survival mode made a series of quick motions knowing he need not move left or right but instead get away in general. As he falls back instead of fighting the fall he releases his naginata.

*clank, cling, rinnnnnggggg* as it hits the ground.

Using his already in place momentum Kengo rolls, doing what looks like a somersault. The momentum is great enough to keep him rolling not once but twice putting enough distance between him and his stern eyed counterpart.

He attempts to return to his feet on the end turn of the second roll his is upright and begins to draw his katana. However the force was more then he thought as he stumbles backwards still attempting to draw his blade.

*thud* the sound of his body slamming into a piece of plywood the boards up a door.

kengo only getting a split second of reprise as he notices his opponent wasting no time and using no excess motion closes the gap attempting to slice straight through Kengo's head from forehead to chin.

Kengo raises his sword as the forces collide pressing him even more forcefully into the plywood. Suddenly Kengo can't feel anything against his back. However the sound of breaking and splintering wood surrounds the two.

Now in another all off shoot of the plaza the two smell a strange gas aroma and hear the sound of gurgling. Their faces peer in the direction where the source is located.

A beaten and bloody samurai stands before them in a lonely beam of a streetlight, appearing to be on his tiptoes. Before either man can call to him a fountain of blood errupts forth from his chest as a sword runs through his back and out of his chest the man suddenly collapses as the lone hand that held him up appears in the light.

The sound of footsteps as the man in the skeleton hoodie steps forward. "Well if isn't my two favorite toys. I haven't much gotten a chance to play with you yet have I?" He lowers his hand to his side. "Now is not the time my mastered equipment hasn't come in. I can't very well use these dirty old gauntlets on you." He rolls back his sleeves revealing two steel bloodstained gauntlets. The appearance shows they've seen many victories which also meant they've seen man deaths for his opponents. "No I'll save you for the grand finale." He turns to walk away but glances back. "Oh three quick things. One my name is the shepard, two the gas should be knocking you two unconscious here shortly, and three Kengo I've already alerted kinco of where you'll be he'll becoming for you both shortly." The man's words fade off as kiro slumps to the ground next to kengo. Kengos vision begins to fade as he realizes the voice of the shepard rings many bells with him.

......darkness.......

"(Gas...)"


Instantly, Kiro's arm crosses over his nose, whilst searching for the origin of this so-called gas..... only to find his undertaking too late.


His vision starts to warp. His feet fighting to stay up. With a small groan, his back hits a wall. Body feeling heavier as he slowly slumps down. A presence seems to be slouched beside him, but his senses.... all has gone dim.

Kengo shoots up "whaaa where." Kinco appears in a door way "calm down Kengo you're at one of my places." As his senses begin to reatune the sound of children on the floor above and the smell of a kitchen fills the air as Kengo begins to become aware of the surrounding apartment complex. "Ughhh my head Kinco what happened. " kinco shrugged in response "I don't know I got an anonymous call with your location and I found you and your friend their on the ground. I've got some news for you both but I'll wait till he awakes."

A few more minutes pass and Kiro blinks awake instantly taking in his surroundings and reaching for where his sword should be. Kengo walks into the room. "Relax we're at a friends place and from what he says there are bigger things at play then our fight come with me."

The two walk down a hall into a living room where there is a small coffee table with a couch to one side and a chair at both ends. "Come you two sit down." Kinco unfolds a piece of paper and also lays some photos on the table. The photos are this of the crime scenes shown to kengo earlier as well as the recent one they both noticed.

Kinco takes a deep breath "So after I got an anonymous call with a location of a friend I armed my men and we went to the area and found you two laying there. As well as a note placed ob you Kengo. It read

The genocide has begun I will take your kind from this world. these will not stop until I have been stopped. Kengo you will be my prized kill I will mount your remains as a trophy, and to see you found a new friend of equal strength you have made my heart flutter with joy as a young boy on Christmas. I will kill all of our kind and then come for you. thankfully I am not alone the mob boss from your recent bust has shared my goal and so is supplying me with my own group that not even you two can withstand. Come Kengo bare your fangs as I have bared mine.

"After the one part I looked back over the photos and aside from the same kill method beating followed by execution with their own sword. The symbol for the Chemiser family is written with their own blood on the body."

The photos before them display a symbol on ones hand another behind ones ear, one on bare skin from a broken piece of shoulder armor and their final victim on the back of their neck. "It's hard to see as it looks like part of the blood but has more of an orange hue which is from a chemical mixed with the blood to make it stay it's shape." Kinco looks to the two "looks like you pissed off the boss and he released a psychopath on the city, if not world to eliminate samurai. This is serious stuff for a simple drug bust, theirs something else from the boss or that psychos own agenda."

Kengo suddenly speaks up "He calls himself the shepard."

Kinco nods "Well that's a start. Where too from here?"

"Hmnh..... friend, huh?"


Kiro's low voice cuts through. Seemingly genteel, his vexation well-restrained.


From the very moment consciousness has returned, he had kept his silence. Akin to a manservant, he followed thru, answering to a challenge for a fight, tailing about where requested. And now, to realize the very nature of these killing attempts on his life, by viewing the photos & hearing the contents of the letter..... what is there to say.


Calmly, he stood up and makes a small bow of head to the man who owns the house.


"Thank you for the kind assistance. I am sure, I'll be able to find a way to repay you in the future." He straightens back up with a single nod, "I'll be seeing myself off." He turns to exit.

Kinco speaks to kiro without looking up "I know a certain little brother who would be disappointed that there's trouble and you're going to take the risk on your own knowing full well this guy has killed numerous of your type. I'm sure he'd be sad and scared for you to try this alone." Kengo just cocked his head to the side much like a fox or dog that's heard a sound for the first time.
Posted 2/28/15



By the mention of the word "brother", Kiro's steps froze. For this man whom he barely knows.... to speak so haphazardly about something that's very deep to his heart.


In an instant, his presence blocks the entirety of Kinco's perception. Fingers tightly gripping the man's shirt collar.


"Whut............. did YOU say?" lips curling to a snarl. His darkened blue eyes holding an indication, as to how dangerous the waters Kinco is treading into. His grip tightens further to a choke-hold.

with no fear shown in his eye Kinco mutters "Brother, someone to be an example for, someone to not spill useless blood like mine but rather fight for a greater cause, a better tomorrow for someone dear." Kengo shoots from his seat and grabs Kiro's arm "chill it boot straps."
