As a result of the colder climate within the Land of Water while being surrounded by warmer water, a mist seems to blanket the landscape most of the time. It is within this area that Kirigakure is located. Trained in this kind of area, the ninjas of the village are able to navigate through this region with little difficulty. Travelers who get lost in the mist may have a harder time finding their way.

Orochi sat by the tall gates of the village entrance, re-reading a little slip of pink paper within his fingers. He seemed to be a little more equipped than usual, and had replenished his stock of kunai and shruiken. His foot tapped against the ground unconsciously as his head was bent down.
Mission: Locate and kill the avagrah (sea-serpent) within the lake outside of Kirikagure. Located 3 kilometers outside the village. Rank: C Person(s) Hired: Orochi Ihara (Jonin), Romaji Mizo-Musoku (Genin), Rikuto Terumi (Genin). Time Expected: 4-6 Hours
Followed by this was the Mizukage's signature. It was to be the team's first C ranked mission, exciting as that was, killing an avagrah would be a relatively simple task if the genins knew how to swim. The weakest points of the sea-serpent were his eyes and tail, where an accurate hit would render the beast's abilities. The jonin crumpled the square of paper with his rough fingers and dropped it into his waist pouch, waiting for his genin to arrive. His jaws parted in a wide yawn, if only the avagrah would be less active during the day.
ooc: writer's block xD

Rikuto let out a loud yawn as he flipped his hot pink hair out of his eyes. This mission wasn't going to be hard. Though, there was one problem. Rikuto was slow underwater. His slashes were too carried under the forces of the water. "Orochi-Sensei. Can't we just make the serpent get on land?" He asked putting on his skull cap as he arrived. He threw on his fur hood to hide his red sleepy eyes.

Romaji appeared in the branches of a nearby tree. He saw Orochi and Rikuto had already arrived. he hopped of the tree and headed towards them. I heard we were fighting a sea serpent, so I went ahead and brought you these. Romaji reached in his bag and took out two Gas masks, replicas of his own. These will allow you to breathe underwater and also protect you from breathable poisons and/or other things you might breathe in that is dangerous. I will need them back at the end of the mission though.
As Orochi's students approached, the jonin lifted his chin in a naturally authoritative way and gazed lazily at the two with half-closed eyes. "Orochi-Sensei. Can't we just make the serpent get on land?" He had expected a suggestion such as this to come from Rikuto. "I'm afraid that these creatures, powerful as they are to coil around their prey in crushing strength, are rarely seen above the depths of the sea floor. And it would take an awful amount of chakra for us to lift the sea-monster onto land." Orochi rose from the stone bench and cracked his knuckles, idly preparing for the short journey. "To disarm the sea-serpant of its crushing abilities, we must firstly aim for its eyes so that it becomes blinded. And then we may kill the avagrah in ways that will cut through its scales - which are actually rather flimsy and thin."
"I heard we were fighting a sea serpent, so I went ahead and brought you these." Sharp kid. These words echoed through Orochi's mind as he watched Romaji pop out from the rustling foliage of the nearby trees. The mentor accepted the gas mask from the genin with a small nod of gratitude, and tucked it away safely into his waist pouch. "Let's leave now," He murmured softly, facing the entrance gates. "The avagrah is less active during the morning."
Rikuto took a mask just like Orochi sensei. He carried it in the opposite hand that his Tanto was in (still sheathed). "Lets get a move on then. If I'm going to blind a Sea Serpent, I want to do it before I'm sixty." Rikuto said jumping up and down from excitement.

Romaji trailed Rikuto, trying to keep up. He couldn't see Orochi but was sure he was keeping up. He felt a rush of adrenaline as he jumped from tree to tree. He began to feel a drop of sweat beginning to pour from his head. He slipped the mask over his face and looked on.
Orochi had kicked off the ground and was now tearing through the dark foliage of the misted forest. Everything around the jonin was a rapid blur as he sped through the fog with ease, seeing that he had grown accustomed to the climate of Kirigakure long before he had even became a genin. There was no need to worry about enemy ninja on this mission. The growth of the woods were full and lush, but it barely seemed recede once the team reached the hardy little water-plants and long stemmed, flowering reeds that lined murky lake. Orochi swept to a stop, landing onto the rocky cascade of the shoreline, with no sign of sudor on his face. The black lake heaved softly like the flank of a dying horse and the fractured, pale light of the morning sky barely penetrated through its lapping ridge. The blackness of the water was a sign of an avagrah taking home within its depths. The jonin took a moment to soak in his sombre surroundings for clues on how much the sea-serpent may have grown during the timespan, and waited for his genin to arrive. Only the dampened flora nearest to the squalid waters had gnarled and spilled into each other in over-growth and gave forth to large, colourful blossoms. The floral scent around the lake was beautifully overpowering and insects whirred within the privacy of the tall grass. Somewhere off in the thicket, he heard a squirrel chirp. Yet Orochi knew better. Even by the softly lapping banks of Mizu no Kuni, the soils were thin with nutrients. Mizu no Kuni was not a land made for heavy agriculture. Indeed, if Orochi scanned his burnished copper eyes past his line of vision, he would see that spare patches of grass were not too far from the edges of the forest. The constant mist washed away the vitamins from the topsoil. The tall trees of the forest survived because they had lived long enough to trail and nestle their thick roots deeply into the earth. This meant that the avagrah was only a few months old - which was ridiculously young for a creature that could survive through the pressures of centuries that counted longer than written history. The scales lining its flank would be no more flimsy than the hide of a burly ox. Orochi padded along the pebbled ridge of the lake. Blackened folds of seaweed and animal bones were strewn along its banks. There was a tiny commoner village in the near distance - they had been the ones to hire the shinobi of Kirigakure to destroy the beast. Orochi's handsome face was not reflected against the ebony waters as he drew his borrowed gas mask from his side. "The avagrah can barely be more than a year old, seeing that the plants along the edge have only begun to flower this abundantly. That's the method that these creatures use to lure their prey - the banks along the waters they live in are thick with fruit trees and fragrant flowers that firstly start to attract small animals before larger ones arrive. Like deer or cougar - which are two examples of game that the economy of the commoner village," He motioned his hand holding the gas mask towards the sleepy village and continued with natural authority, "are kept thriving with. The lake is pure black so that the avagrah can hide discreetly before it rises up to the surface to crush his prey. The sea-serpents have richly violet scales and marbled eyes - you'll know it once you see it. Fire releases are obviously tactless. I'll use earth release to imprison the avagrah in a sand dungeon once we find him, at the bottom of the sea bed, and blind him using spires of rocks or coral that I'll find at the seabed. Let me find him first, or else you may be crushed in his grip. Then you both will use whatever methods possible to cut through its flesh. Water releases will not work. The pressure of the water underneath will be heavy, but nothing overwhelming. If your gas masks stop working for whatever reason, do not panic, and reach the surface of the lake in a steady velocity or else you'll suffer from decompression sickness. Worse case scenario is paralysis or death." That seemed enough.
Rikuto was the last to take off. His thoughts got the best of him in this situation. Rikuto had a major problem; he can't swim. How was he going to defeat a Sea Serpent if he couldn't even balance himself underwater. He tried to repress the sick ideas of what could happen under the water. The thoughts kept flowing and before he knew it he was at the lake. He stopped screeching in beside Orochi. "The avagrah can barely be more than a year old," What a relief, It couldn't be any bigger than Orochi sensei. This would be a piece of cake now. Rikuto smirked cracking his neck ready to attack. " -firstly start to attract small animals before larger ones arrive. Like deer or cougar." A large gulp jogged down Rikuto's throat. He placed his mask on. The shivers down his spine make him wiggle and his breathing was loud and obnoxious. He held his tanto in his right hand like it was a hot keddle. "Re-Rea-Ready!" Rikuto cried.

Romaji walked toward the edge of the water and placed his head underneath the water(with his mask already on). He could only see a few feet in front of him, and could easily pass by the avagrah without knowing it. He turned multiple ides in his head of how to get the water clearer, or draw the avagrah out. For the mission, he had brought a large amount of his poison. At the concentration the poison would be in the lake, perhaps it would be toxic enough to draw it out. Many more ideas went through his head. While all this happened he slowly went into the water, feet first.
occ: in my last post, i made orochi already enter the water, but i edited it so that he could address rikuto's fear in this post.
Orochi had only had the time to slip his gas mask over his face when the shuddering breath of Rikuto came seeping out in ragged patterns. There was a moment where Orochi stopped wading through the calm arms of the sea. "Re-Rea-Ready!" "It obviously doesn't seem so." The jonin said softly, now pulling himself back out of the ebony waters. Cold ripples lapped hungrily after Orochi as he stepped back onto the lithic, flowery shoreline. He motioned to Romaji to return back onto the sea's ridge. The gas mask muffled his baritone voice, and Orochi pulled the facade down to his angled jawline. He distinctly knew that the genin's apphrension, evidently rolling off him in anxious and waving vibrations, had originated from both the thought of a man-crushing sea serpent and from entering the blackened depths of the billowing sea. Before he began to spoke, Orochi let a few moments of silence pass between him and the genin, not wishing to hurt the dignity of Rikuto. It was okay to be afraid - one didn't need to feel safe to be brave. His voice was still a murmur, almost benign, as though the gas mask was still covering the jonin's face. "You didn't seem nervous when we had left the village." It wasn't an interrogating quote, but rather one that would force Rikuto to explain himself without Orochi pressuring his apprentice directly. He sensed vaguely that it also may have been because the pink-haired genin hadn't learned how to swim - although swimming was an academy basic. Especially for Mizu no Kuni, which was surrounded with large bodied of deep water. What on earth were the academy teachers educating their students with? At least the former graduation practice, of pitting two close friends against each other to a battle that would end in a death, was now extinct. Orochi had prepared for an event like this. In one of the three scroll pouches of his flakjacket, there held several small amulets. The amulets held different types of fuuinjutsu each - one permitted the user to dodge simple genjutsu illusions, one gave the wearer protection by camouflage, the other gave quick thinking and alertness, and the last allowed the bearer the ability of adept swimming. They were simple charms, only used by genin who had yet to learn how to create the spells themselves, but they worked well. Before Orochi would give Rikuto the amulet that allowed the user to swim, he waited for a reason.

Romaji rose from the water as his leader instructed him. That look in his eyes; it is the same as that of any creature that has met its predator, face to face. Romaji pulled himself out and stood far enough to not listen in to the conversation, but not so far as to make Rikuto feel as if Romaji sees something wrong with him. Romaji thought to himslef "Now I remember, he was the one that could not swim. It must be horrible to be the only to be able to do something, especially a simple thing such as swimming."
Rikuto frowned as Orochi-sensei approached him about the situation. "Well...you see. I didn't think the water would be this deep, nor that the Sea Serpent would be this big." Rikuto cried. His legs were obviously shaking the closer he got to the water. "No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't swim. At the very least I can doggie paddle."
Water was something to be distinctly afraid of - it killed both those foolish enough to steep themselves in rapid current and those innocent enough to be in its path when a turbulent flood hit. But all the other elements owned the same temperaments - fire, earth, wind... Orochi looked up into the deep blue eyes of Rikuto and locked his gaze, silently telling the apprentice to cease his crying. His voice was ominously soft, "A ninja must never show his emotions during a battle or mission, Rikuto." To preserve the genin's dignity, he let the register of his tone reach no farther than the two. His voice was like the sound of a switch blade opening in a church choir. The jonin had no sympathy for the genin - how could he not swim when nearly all the jutsus that originated from Mizu no Kuni encircled the element of water? As a student, he had been the type to learn quickly and efficiently. His swimming lessons as a child were long forgotten, and long mastered. Then, unpredictably, the teacher heaved a small sigh. "But... we are all human... humans have flaws..." His cold fingers reached one of the scroll pouches of his flakjacket, and out from the opened velcro tumbled a twisted mound of chains. They fell onto the outstretched palm of his hand and the jonin slowly untangled the chains. Within the mesh of cold metal was a tiny charm bracelet. Orochi pushed the amulets away from the centre of his palm silently, and lightly fingered a tiny silver heart that was clasped on the chain. His own heart seized up. Every day, he tried not to think of his decreased younger sister. Every day, he failed. But there was no time for such feelings, but Orochi softly realized that his lack of sympathy had vanished. Hotaru herself must have been afraid during her last moments before death. She had died trying to save a fellow genin, a close friend, letting her own blood rise in its trail in exchange for her friend's life. Orochi learned from this. He would happily suffer injuries for his students.
迷彩 (camouflage) , 警戒心 (alertness) and 泳ぐ (swim) were carved into the brassy, deep bronze covers of each necklace. The amulets were each held on a tough string of wiry hemp. With the 'swim' necklace clutched in his right hand, Orochi returned the last two amulets and his sister's charm bracelet into his scroll pouch. Orochi walked towards Rikuto and handed the genin the medallion. "This has a fuuinjutsu casted inside the amulet, and will let you swim like second nature. We'll need to teach you how to swim once we return to the village, though, the spell cased within eventually fades with use." The jonin then lightly cuffed the shoulder of his genin, in a sort of way that established a bond between student and teacher. "Don't let your fear hold you back, you'll face much more on your way to becoming one of the seven swordsmen of the mist. Fear wants to see you fail."

Romaji looked over his shoulder and saw that Orochi had given RIkuto something. "Perhaps it is for his fear", he thought. Romaki wondered whether it was okay to proceed now, but instead waited to see what it is that was going to happen.
