Cherry blossom petals fell from the trees above. Even though the wind carried the fragrance around him, he focused on his meditation. His farmer hat shielded him from the flying petals as he changed his poses every so often but one thing would stay the same, how his left hand was positioned. His index and middle finger was aligned in front of his nose while the thumb pointed at his chin, just a few inches away from his face. He breathed slowly and remembered his father's teachings but his eyes opened slightly at the sound of grass being stepped on behind the many trees. He sighed and calmly spoke...

"Show yourself, I know it's you..." 

Behind the trees emerged a woman taller than the man, her long dark green hair was waving like a flag in the wind. A light green ribbon was tied to a strand but it served no purpose as it could not restrain the hair it was holding. She was wearing a ragged shirt along with a scorched long, white skirt. But the man knew well a fire wouldn't have caused this. He tightened his bright purple scarf to ensure it wouldn't fall but the ends still flew behind him. His black cape and his white pants had a faded symbol where his left knee was located. The symbol was three S's imprinted within a circular pattern, outlined by a black circle. She observed this as well and muttered, "Still wearing the attire? I thought my little brother woul--" His quiet voice interrupted her as spoke, "I am not your brother, ever since you dishonored our clan..." The girl shook her head as she caught a flying petal and examined it between her fingers. "Ryasaki, you're still going on about this? I was tired of you all holding me back, I just freed myself..." She released the petal, allowing it to drift with the wind. He unsheathed his katana from his back and firmly gripped it with his hands. "I'm getting tired of this conversation..." His voice was clear now, firmly believing he could fulfill his duty with another given opportunity. The girl also pulled her sword from her case located at her waist. She replied, "I will bargain with you to surrender before my tides of death crash upon your ship of life..." The man's eyes were wide open as he dashed towards his sister, he roared, "You will bargain with your blood Shokishi!"

 

Ryasaki dashed through his sister and was now behind her, panting quietly and his sword reaching the end of it's path. He was now in a frozen position, expecting his sister to fall, but she didn't. Shokishi hid her katana back into her case and started walking forward, a sinister grin on her face as Ryasaki felt an instant shock and fell to the ground. His chest felt an intense burn afterwards and he screamed in pain. A bright green liquid secreted from a large cut that was created by Shokishi's katana, which was now covered in a thin layer of the very same liquid. "Don't worry little brother, I have yet to show you the Forbidden Skill's true power..." Her laughter pierced through the forest. It was the last thing Ryasaki heard before his vision faded to pitch black...
