    On the eastern most side of the Isle of Whispers there was relatively little in terms of human intervention. There were almost no shacks or fisherman huts, no docks, not even the remnants of campfires. The majority of it was nothing but sand and mist, a place of silence and contemplation. In fact, there was only one building on this isolated part of the island. It was a small house that was built with a caring hand. The walls were colored stone up to the knees, with healthy Senju wood lumber layered on the top half of the ranch style home like siding. The roof was slanted to one side with good slate tiles providing good protection from the elements. Underneath this were the bones of the home, made of sturdy oak studs with extremely complex fuuinjutsu providing insulation as well as air flow hidden within these studs. Everything was well tended, with no signs of decay or neglect on the outside of the house

    Pristine windows made of the clearest glass were on each cardinal direction, two on the east and west and one on the north and south. It sat a few dozen meters from the coast, a small retaining wall on the coastal side preventing it from getting flooded in all but the worst conditions. There were two visible entrances, one facing the middle of the island and one facing the coast. If one were to exit through the latter, they would find themselves on a very well maintained cobblestone pathway that curved back and forth slightly along its way to the coast. It ended where a small pier began that extended a dozen meters from the shore out into the sea of the archipelago. It was a beautiful view, excellent for viewing the sunrise for those who had the mindset to rise that early.

    Only one man ever got to see the sunrise here though. Nobody else on the island dared disturb this area without his permission, after all. This little piece of land, this isolated and desolate piece of land, it was one of the few things he asked to be his own in this world. It was his place to think, to meditate, to plan, to command, and to live. Not even Honiko had seen this place more than half a dozen times, and she had only seen the interior once. Since then it had changed completely as he grew bored of it.

    Today, that man sat at the edge of the pier with a green apple in his hand. It was a crisp apple with a good taste, the sourness so pure that it caused his eye to twitch if he took too big a bite. His posture was perfect as it had been for his entire life, a slender build that displayed nothing too prominent or noticeable. His hair, black with streaks of grey to indicate a man in his middle years, was the only truly noticeable thing about him as a first impression. The choice of clothing he had on today was nothing too fancy, a simple woolen shirt and trousers. His feet were bare and a sword with a white hilt and a white sheathe lay across his lap as his feet dangled from the docks.

    He picked something up at the edge of his sensory range headed his direction. Two signatures, and both were ones he had been expecting. They had just gotten to 480 meters away from him if he had to guess. This should be an interesting day, he thought, taking another bite of the apple. This particular bite caused him to pucker his lips and close his eyes, the apple biting him back with its aggressive flavor. After a few seconds it lost some of its sting and he could eat it without too many funny faces.

    And so he would sit at the edge of his pier, eating his apple and watching the waves as his two companions approached his position. By the time they would have gotten to the house he would be tossing the core of the apple into the sea for the fish to scavenge. He sighed, remaining seated, waiting to see how the two women would proceed from here.

    Do you think this will be interesting, old friend?

    Silence for a moment, and then; We shall see, my friend. We shall see.

    Honiko walked through the empty mist as she made her way to Hizashi. The woman had her Mind's Eye active and could sense his prodigious chakra as she drew near. Close behind her was Nozomi Himitsu, her chosen successor and most favored disciple. The two people most important to her world were about to meet for the first time. Honiko knew that the moment didn't mean as much to Nozomi as it did to her. Nozomi loved Honiko, and in turn Honiko loved Hizashi. However, it was a different type of love which connected them. Nozomi's love for Honiko was romantic and sexual. Honiko's love for Hizashi was spiritual and familial. She worshiped him and all he stood for. She was saw him as being the absolute pinnacle of what a leader, father, and prophet ought to be. A man who could see all the world had to offer both in terms of time and space. A man who could then take that knowledge and with the gift of divine revelation compose a plan to bring every aspect of it into order. A man who knew his destiny and his rightful place in shaping history. A man who could show compassion to an unenlightened young girl. It was her highest aspiration to serve such a man to her dying breath. There was nothing that he could order her that she would not do. If he commanded her to kill her most cherished student right here and now, she would do so without hesitation.

    The Dual Sage approached the man from behind. Slowly, and with deference in each step. It was rare for them to meet. Despite the fact that he had trained her closely for several years, once she had acquired enough power to act without his assistance she found him to be largely hands off. He trusted her to get the job done as necessary and recently the two had communicated in person only a handful of times per year. Honiko was not distraught about the situation as she figured that he had more important matters to attend to. The fact that he trusted her to deliver results without him having to watch over her shoulder was a mark of pride. Apparently, Nozomi did not share her predilections with respect to independence. Honiko could feel the sadness, desperation, and depression emanating from her own disciple. The girl walked with purpose and conviction yet her heart had sank to suicidal depths and worryingly enough it stayed there. She did not want Honiko to leave. The reaction was troubling, but Honiko had to trust that the jinchurikki's obsession with her would keep her going. The hope of Honiko's return would keep her on her feet and fighting for the Society. At least, that was her expectation. If Honiko could sense the emotions radiating off of Nozomi then she was sure that Hizashi could. What would he think of her? Would he chastise Honiko for choosing a poor disciple? Would he help Nozomi recover from her depression? If Honiko had to guess, he'd probably ignore it for the time being. Devising whatever counter-measures and preparations he thought necessary to contain and remedy the situation.

    Honiko stopped when she was just a few meters behind Hizashi. She could hear him chewing on an apple and she could see the streaks of grey in his hair. Her heart stopped as it often did when she about to address her Sensei. Honiko sank to one knee and gestured for Nozomi to follow suit. She looked down at the ground, rested her arm on the raised knee and spoke in a level tone.

    "My Lord, this is my disciple....the one I have been telling you about.....Nozomi Himitsu."

    Nozomi approached the area with Honiko, unsure what her master would be like. To hear Honiko talk about him, the few times she ever did so, he was a god to be worshipped. Nozomi could understand that, as she felt the same way about Honiko. It would be interesting to finally meet this person that Honiko seemed to care so much for. Someone beyond even her, above her in position in the Society. Working behind the scenes. Nozomi couldn't even imagine. She knew that Honiko's respect for him was nothing short of the same that Nozomi held for Honiko, and that Honiko shared for her. Perhaps more, but the bond between a master and a student was already powerful. The bond between two who loved each other?

    Nozomi was comforted in the knowledge that she was Honiko's favorite student. She knew that there was love between them. The cave was a memory forever etched into her brain. The talon from Honiko's favored summons was proof enough, proudly displayed on her chest. There was nothing that could come between them. The world could throw anything at them and they'd still end up together in the end. To Nozomi, there was no question.

    The memory formed a nice little anchor to warm Nozomi's soul in the moment, otherwise the despair and anguish she felt would consume her. She used it to fuel herself, to continue forward with purpose and confidence on the outside, to not let herself break at the thought of Honiko leaving for her quest. It was hard for her to process her emotions, so normally she just didn't, and it was usually fine, but at the moment, she was doing all she could to hold together.

    Isobu stirred as they got closer to the place housing Hizashi. The two of them had grown close, although not quite there yet, they were almost like friends. Isobu respected Nozomi's strength, but only required one further challenge from Nozomi before he would fully cooperate with her as a friend.

    They entered the room, and Honiko immediately dropped to a knee, showing her respect and reverence for Hizashi. Nozomi's eyes fell on him, and.... nothing. He was just a man. Nozomi's body moved into a polite and respectful bow, but unlike her master, she would not go down onto a knee. Her fealty and loyalty wasn't to Hizashi, but to Honiko instead. She would not bend the knee for anyone else. Nozomi knew her master, and recognized no others.

    Isobu spoke to her, urging caution. "This man, little one. Be careful with him. He's the one who placed me in you all those years ago. He's a danger for sure. Do not cross him if you wish to live."

    Nozomi paid the 3 tails no mind. She was already examining Hizashi based on the brief moment she'd seen him. His hair had grayed, and he looked like any other man. Simply having been eating an apple on the edge of the pier. She could tell from the way he sat that he had good posture. His clothing suggested he didn't care for the fancy things, and the simple sword at his side expressed martial prowess. All in all, he seemed like a capable enough fighter, detached from worldly possessions. Nozomi's instincts told her Isobu was right. This man was deadly. Still, Nozomi had fought many people and come out the victor without much issue.

    She wouldn't, of course, challenge him. Honiko would be mad about that. Nozomi stayed more or less quiet while she waited for him to speak. Nozomi's heart glowed with praise as Honiko mentioned she'd talked about her to him. And yet, the sad pit of depression seemed to grow. These moments were dwindling. Every second leading to the eventuality of Honiko leaving. Nozomi's posture dropped slightly mid bow. It was slight, but it was there. The boiling anger started to grow again as Nozomi thought of the futility of it all. She could possess all the strength in the world, but was powerless to stop Honiko from going.

    Isobu spoke once more. "Calm yourself little one. Now's not the time for anger. Keep your composure here. For your own safety." Nozomi snapped at him in her mind. "Don't suggest that I'm weak, 3 tails. You're the one trapped here and useless, I'm not so easily endangered. I can go where I want, and do what I want, and nobody has the power to stop me by themselves. So just shut up and leave me alone."

    He seemed to grow more quiet, and Nozomi felt a little better having somewhere to direct her rage at. It worked well enough to calm her back down.

    Hizashi could sense the two halt behind him, could almost feel them pay their respects by the disturbance of the wind. Honiko was the only one to speak, the reverence and respect in her tone obvious to even the dullest of children. The other one said nothing, though Hizashi sensed she was agitated. A small smile moved across his face as he imagined the possibilities. Perhaps she was upset that Honiko was to depart soon, or perhaps Isobu was speaking to her. Perhaps it was a mixture of both. He couldn't be certain of course, but he could make a very good guess.

    The man would remain seated for a few seconds after Honiko spoke, contemplating the view for a few moments longer. Then, without a whisper of noise, he would fluidly rise to his feet and spin to face the two women. He made his way to them, relaxed and in no definite hurry and would stop once he was two meters from them. The white katana was grasped in his left hand by the sheathe, his entire body relaxed as he studied them. Honiko was kneeling in complete submission to him, her awe at his presence bringing a comforting reminder that he had such a loyal tool at his disposal.

    Slate grey eyes fell upon Nozomi Himitsu, Honiko's disciple and chosen successor. The girl was young and defiant, choosing only to bow to him. A few years ago this may have annoyed him, but there was no reason to be bothered by such things now. All would be right in the world soon enough, and such little infractions now could be overlooked in favor of the grand scheme of things. And yes, the girl was indeed agitated. The little twitches of muscles in her body, the ever so slight variation to her chakra signature... yes, he didn't need the Mind's Eye to discern such basic things. Of course, Hizashi had observed Nozomi's progress himself quite a few times unbeknownst to Honiko and her Society. He had a good idea of what this young Nozomi could do, make no mistake.

    "Stand."

    The word was firm and clear, an order that was meant to be obeyed.

    "Look at me, girl."

    Again, the tone was firm and had no waver to it. It was iron, a voice that had commanded respect for more years than Nozomi had been alive. It was not hostile, that was simply not something Hizashi would openly express to one he had known for such a small amount of time. No, it was just the voice of command such as no other in the world could possess. Once the two women had stood and Nozomi had looked at him, Hizashi would close the distance between the two of them to only one meter. He stood at 6'1", a man with a good amount of height on his bones. He stared down at Nozomi, his eyes brushing over her in a cold and calculating manner. His expression was one of slight curiosity, his mind wondering what could make this girl so special.

    Hizashi would speak again after a good amount of time had passed in examination of Nozomi. He had taken in every detail, every facet of her form and stored it in his extensive memory. This close up view had given him the final details he needed to know what her body could do, to know that she was indeed a strong kunoichi. It disgusted Hizashi to think of her in a good way with such a title as that, kunoichi.

    Ahhh, but he was letting his mind stray again. What she happened to be now was not important, only what she could become mattered to him. All beings could be molded and shaped into a useful tool given enough attention. Honiko had required little of that attention, and she had done a fine job. She was going to continue to do a fine job once she was gone from this world, hunting for that which Hizashi had asked her to find more than a decade ago. How that accursed woman had gotten her hands on it, Hizashi did not know nor did he care. As long as it was his again, that was all that mattered.

    "Does Isobu still bother you so, Disciple? How unfortunate,"
    Hizashi said placidly. His attention turned to Honiko. "You have allowed her to be lax in this, Honiko. The body can only get one so far, and you have placed too much emphasis on it in her teachings." He paused, and then gave a small sigh. "She is still worthy of some praise however, you have not failed in all things. The Blood Prison was no small feat, but her usefulness is..." he slowed here, turning his back on the two of them and stepping away to increase the distance between them to four meters. "...diminished."

    His head swiveled to peer over his right shoulder, the same grey eye peering at them with the same cold and collected manner it had so far. "You will fix this, or neither of you will leave this island again until you do." He would continue to stare over his shoulder at Nozomi, his final statement being a hint as to what he meant. Today was going to be a much more difficult day than the young one had been anticipating, that much must be certain.

    Honiko could sense agitation coming from her disciple. However, it wasn't of the same character that she had sensed from the moment she told Nozomi of her plans to leave. This emotional reaction was directed inward and tasted more of wrath towards a specific entity rather than a general situation. She didn't have time to contemplate the reaction as she herself was soon overcome with feelings of anger. Nozomi refused to bow. Honiko shot an angry glare at Nozomi and her eyes narrowed. Wretch! Have I not taught you better than this? For Nozomi to give a mere bow to the man whom Honiko owed her life was nothing less than insulting. It was a clear slap in the face to the one who would soon re-order and re-establish the proper framework for the world. It was a serious offense, not unforgivable, but quite severe. The seared edges of her eyes darkened and her crimson pupils narrowed in on the young woman. Nozomi would know that Honiko was utterly displeased and embarrassed by her refusal to show the utmost respect to Hizashi. Fortunately, the look did not linger for Hizashi's attention was upon them and she dared not speak about it while in his presence.

    She was ordered to stand. Stand she did. Honiko kept her hands at her sides and her gazed fixed forward. She was not being addressed and so she opted to remain at attention. Hizashi had no use for unfocused and idle warriors with wandering eyes and lackadaisical posture. He had taught her the importance of standing at attention. Leisure and relaxation were not for instruments of prophesy such as herself. Honiko could still sense them though and without looking at him or Nozomi directly,  she could also tell that he was examining her pupil via her astute peripheral vision. Honiko's heart skipped a beat as she sensed his scrutiny. It was possible, even likely, that she was more nervous than Nozomi although she did a great job of not showing it.

    He commented on Nozomi's relationship with Isobu and then turned to her. Honiko met his eyes and didn't flinch as he delivered a stunning blow to her own pride. She had failed him. The pain was not as severe as what Nozomi was feeling regarding Honiko's imminent departure, but it did hurt nonetheless. She had opted to separate the host and the beast. Keeping Isobu's influence at bay and forcing Nozomi to rely on her own power. The result worked wonders for the girl's base combat abilities. Nozomi was the perfect specimen when it came to the shinobi arts. A 10/10 kunoichi whose ability rivaled and exceeded that of the Gokage. Honiko was proud of her disciple and while she despised vanity, she couldn't help but bask in the light of her student's glory. After all, elite ninja were almost always trained by elite sensei. But after Hizashi's words, all of the pride and accomplishment she had invested into Nozomi was stripped down.

    I have failed him....

    She was wrong to neglect Nozomi's development with her Bijuu. If the two were to survive the coming wars then they'd need to be in sync. She believed they would have time to work that out but Hizashi thought otherwise. He needed Nozomi to be in harmony with her Tailed Beast and he needed it done now. Honiko, and the Society by extension, operated on his time frame. It didn't matter when she had planned to help Nozomi tame the beast, their entire timetable had changed. He gave her token praise for her efforts in the Blood Prison, but then made it abundantly clear that they would not be permitted to leave until the deed was done. Despite the stain of disappointment she felt on her spirit, Honiko did not even blink. She gave a slight nod and replied:

    "Apologies my Lord."

    There was no explanation or excuses. Hizashi was not the type of man who enjoyed hearing the sound of his students plead for his patience. He was results driven. He had certain expectations. She had failed them. He'd remind her of her duty and she'd meet or exceed them. It wasn't often that she made a mistake, but when she did, she made damn sure that it wouldn't happen again. Honiko looked at Nozomi for the first time since they had begun speaking to the man. The words were directed at Hizashi but by looking at Nozomi she left no room for interpretation. She wanted the jinchurikki to understand that there would be no other task of higher importance.

    Nozomi broke her bow, standing up to her full height, which was still over a foot shorter than Hizashi was. Nozomi wasn't a tall girl, nor was she physically imposing. However, there was a comfortability with the way she stood, a confidence in her self that didn't let her get intimidated by anyone. She was sure of her own capabilities, and size had stopped mattering to her a long time ago. Hizashi's gaze was met with her own unwavering gaze, while she ignored the glare that Honiko had given her moments before. Nozomi would accept Honiko's anger, but she would never bend the knee to anyone else, whether ire was brought out or not. Whether for her benefit or not.

    His comment about Isobu seemed to make the turtle stir inside her, and she felt his power start to swell. It was almost as if the 3 tails was responding in its own way. Nozomi's control was almost complete, and the 3 tails more or less let her use most of his power because she rarely needed it. He had a massive respect for Nozomi's strength and her will power to keep him from taking over without using his powers. She had rarely needed him. Even during the Prison, he hadn't ended up being needed.

    The 3 tails appeared to be getting ready for something, although Nozomi wasn't sure what, until... "You will fix this, or neither of you will leave this island again until you do." She understood immediately that he wanted her to gain full control of the 3 tails. The last bit required to enhance Nozomi's power as a Jinchuuriki. And the last little bit of respect that Isobu had to gain for her. He wouldn't willingly give her control unless she could wrest his chakra from him. Then he would be ready to fully work with Nozomi instead of them just lending abilities here or there.

    Nozomi chose to ignore that he was saying she could only be so useful. She had been thinking the same thing earlier, when she'd asked Honiko for the Snake Contract. She could only be so powerful by herself. However, his assertion that Honiko had failed him somehow incited Nozomi's contempt. While Honiko felt shame, Nozomi's emotions were ablaze of righteous fury, directed at Hizashi. However, she kept her emotions in check. Honiko may forgive her for not kneeling, or at least realize to argue anything else would get her nowhere on that topic, but Honiko would not forgive Nozomi lashing out at Hizashi.

    Instead, Nozomi weaponized her anger. She used it to fuel her drive to prove him wrong. If he thought Nozomi's skills were a failure, he was dead wrong. Honiko had been a perfect teacher. Nozomi was massively powerful, and there were a handful of people who could even present a challenge to her, let alone beat her. The Prison was no small feat? She had completed her job without so much as a drop of her own blood being spilled. To her, it was nothing, just another task that she had to complete. She wouldn't fail her master. So how could her master's master think Honiko had failed?

    Nozomi's anger boiled beneath the surface, but she kept her face calm, perhaps the most basic muscle twinges to even suggest anger. She was used to hiding her emotions from perceptive people. Without sensory, very few people would even be able to discern her emotions unless she let them. Turning to Honiko, she spoke. "If you have the Contract on you now, I would like to sign it first. If you don't, it's not an issue." If Honiko permitted her and had the contract, she would sign it immediately, and then commence with what she would have done if Honiko didn't have it on her.

    Dropping into a meditative state, Nozomi entered into her inner realm to begin her fight for control in front of Hizashi and Honiko. She sat on her knees with her hands in her lap, completely straight with perfect posture. Her eyes closed. She'd prove Honiko hadn't failed in her teaching at all. Nozomi was perfectly capable on her own. She had surpassed most of the world without the 3 tails. With him, she was even more powerful. Sure, she had more to gain by working with him, but she didn't need to. She wasn't fighting the 3 tails to gain more power. She was going to fight him as a response to Hizashi.

    Inside Nozomi's inner realm, Nozomi found herself appearing on a simple rocky plain. In front of her were two spires, suspended between which was the 3 Tails. He was more or less unable to move, which worked well enough for Nozomi. "And so it's time." The creature spoke, ready for the fight to come.

    Nozomi simply nodded in reply. Lifting up her shirt, she messed with her seal, loosening it enough that the suspension of the 3 tails was lowered down. When he reached the ground, the immobilized 3 tails was no longer unable to move, and the battle was allowed to begin. "So it begins."

    It was hard to tell exactly when Isobu began to hate and despise humans. To want to crush them beneath his feet and hear the sound of their bones crack under the whip of his tails. To listen to them plead and beg as he impaled them with coral and drowned beneath the pressure of thousands of litters of water. He had always had the power to do this, but it was hard for him to remember when it was that he began taking pleasure in doing it. When it was that he went from avoiding humans to actively seeking and killing the pesky little creatures. Because you see, Bijuus aren't born evil.

    Isobu wasn't created for the purpose of killing and murder. He was merely a creature, like so many others. But he happened to be a creature with power and that made him a target. He could not even remember the first time he killed a human who tried to hunt him down... He wondered if in a thousand years he would remember killing Nozomi Himitsu. Would he snap her beneath his tail? Drown her? Impale? Or would he come up with some new method? Perhaps if he was creative he would remember her broken body but he doubted her name would be worthy enough to remain in his memory.

    His paws touched the ground, and an immense pressure was removed from his body. While sealed it was hard to breathe and to move, to speak and sometimes even listen. His existence was so limited and yet...he had gotten used to it. He had been sealed and bound inside Nozomi for enough time that he was no longer used to the real dimension of his power. So when he was finally released and his power flowed freely, the Three Tailed Beast was taken over by a sensation of pure pleasure and ecstasy. It was even hard to control the chakra that began overflowing from his body into the rocky fields around them.

    Slowly but steadily, small corals began to grow within a 600 meters radius of him. Easily crushed into dust by even the most average of humans, but the corals which grew to the size of small bushes were nonetheless a demonstration of his power, as a forest of tiny fragile trees grew around him.

    "RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW!"

    The roar and first step of the bijuu made the ground tremble, and a small amount of the coral trees shattered. The beast's eyes would focus on the Jinchuuriki 400 meters ahead of him. She was here all alone? The Bijuu almost pitied her. But the disappointment for only having the opportunity to kill one person here spoke higher... perhaps when she died he would be able to kill more people outside. This expectation made him want to kill her quickly and his murderous intent grew. Oh how he longed to crush her spine beneath his shell and be free.

    "So you have come." The beast stated, with a tone of despise. "For years now you have been shamelessly been keeping my power, for your selfish reasons. Twice now have I saved your life and countless other times have I offered you advice.

    And now you are here. To selfishly take that which does not belong to you. And for what reason? Destruction? Revenge? To serve the wishes of the white devilish creature whose loyalty is not even towards you? How dare you? I'm the only reason why you still breathe.

    Nozomi Himitsu. You poor ungrateful excuse for a human. Weak, in mind, spirit and body. Too weak and scared to find and pursue your own purpose, so you serve the purpose of others.

    And now you want me to submit my power to you? When your own power isn't even truly yours?"
    The creature chuckled.

    "No, you ungrateful creature. Coming here alone was your last mistake. This is where you die."

    It was a strange thing, to develop a bond with the Bijuu. It may seem easy to befriend a caged animal, but when confronted with the possibility of freedom one's true nature comes out. Not all the time Isobu spent sealed inside Nozomi had been bad. Some of it had been entertaining even. But what was that when compared to true freedom? Damned be Nozomi. In a hundred years she'd be dead and dust. And Isobu would still live. If he didn't take this opportunity now, perhaps his next hundred years would be spent in a cage.

    When the beast finished his speech, the last piece of the seal broke and the last barrier that both protected and contained him, shattered completely. Now he was free to rip and tear at Nozomi's body, and she was free to try to tame the beast.

    Honiko's reaction was as he figured it would be judging by the fluctuations in her chakra when he spoke. Truly loyal... I think you would even kill this one if I wanted you to. I wouldn't even need to order it, I could simply ask. You've been raised well, Faithful One. Hizashi's inner praise did not show on his cold demeanor. His latest protege was a powerful woman, driven to succeed, though she was too zealous for his tastes. Everything in balance, as he had come to learn in life. He turned slightly once he processed Nozomi's reaction, not quite having his back turned to them now. "Good." That was his only response to Honiko, delivered in the same calm voice as always.

    His eyes settled on her, her chakra fluctuating ever so slightly. Muscle twitches that even she likely did not notice, he saw with clarity. She was angry. Yes, that had to be it. She was good at hiding her emotions, Hizashi had to admit that. But good was not good enough with him. A man such as he was too smart, too perceptive to let such small things pass by when he was interested. He would remain silent as the following exchange happened, regardless on whether she signed the contract or not. It mattered little to him as long as this matter was settled. One had to admit though, to be so willing to do it on the spot was worthy of praise. Of course, he did not show this.

    Not yet.

    She had to win first, and that would be no easy task against Isobu. Despite only being the Three-Tails, he was one of the more difficult beast to subdue due to his durability. Could she crack a nut that hard as many times as would be needed? It was hard to tell. As she dropped, Hizashi would turn back around completely and began to stroll back to her. "That takes courage, Disciple," he said with a hint of amusement in his voice. "I wonder if she believe this will be easy," he mused to himself in a whisper so low even he could barely hear it. He waited for her to enter this inner realm of hers. He pondered what it could be briefly, imagining it to be a hard place based on his thoughts of the girl.

    "Your successor is... bold, Honiko," he commented once Nozomi could not hear them speak. "Have you informed her of the dangers of this particular course of action?" Hizashi knew the answer already, but it was always good to test the faithful to see if they were still true. Honiko had not lied to him once as far as he knew, and Hizashi knew everything worth knowing. After her response, he would turn his full attention back to Nozomi. He had sensed the seal being disturbed, and Honiko may have as well.

    So it's time. Hizashi's lips turned up in a small smile, imagining those to be the words Isobu would have spoken. He knew the beast quite well, better than Nozomi herself in all likelihood. It was unlikely the beast had divulged so much of itself in the few short years he had been inside of Nozomi. Isobu had known Hizashi for most of the man's life and the two were on relatively good terms, all things considered.

    He squatted next to the girl, head cocked slightly to the side as he contemplated something. After a good minute of waiting and thinking, he would raised a single finger on his right hand since his left still bore the katana. A touch ever so slight on Nozomi's cheek with that finger would link him to the girl as he decided to monitor the battle personally. He was curious to see how the battle would go and could interpret it very well through this direct touch. Perhaps, should the need arise... he might even see what her inner world looked like for himself.

    Honiko had never been able to read her sensei with her Mind's Eye. She knew he was there. She knew his chakra existed. But she couldn't gather more from that fact like she could with other people. She figured he had to have a means of hiding or masking the fluctuations of chakra that accompanied one's emotional state. The man's wisdom and power knew no bounds and her inability to read his mind only increased her esteem of him. Nozomi, however, she could read like a book. Despite the disappointment Honiko felt, Nozomi did not feel any ire towards her. Hizashi was essentially saying Honiko had trained her incorrectly and a lesser mind might have felt cheated by her. A ninja forced to spend two years without their greatest weapon. Yet, Nozomi's love for her sensei was not diminished. Instead, Honiko felt Nozomi's rage directed towards Hizashi. She sensed a desire to prove him wrong, to vindicate the both of them as the greatest Master and Disciple pair in the world. Honiko was touched. Nozomi would go to great lengths to demonstrate her worth to any naysayer, even if that naysayer was her teacher's teacher. Before Nozomi spoke a word, she already knew the girl would rise to the challenge.

    Keeping with the tradition of the others, not an iota of emotion showed on her face. Honiko would have told Nozomi to be patient. To wait so that they could develop a seal which would permit her, Raijin, and even that deplorable scientist Menza to join her. She'd need the help, and who better to assist than the Society? But that was not meant to be. Nozomi was driven and Honiko could tell that she wanted to fight Isobu immediately if only prove Hizashi wrong. Honiko was not convinced this was the wisest move. Nozomi was acting out of anger and it was causing her to behave rashly. It was something she had warned her about before. This was back in the Land of Earth when she expressed a desire to subjugate an entire nation by herself. Nevertheless, despite her doubts about the girl's imminent decision, she decided she wouldn't say a word. She'd stick by her student. If Nozomi believed that she could take on the Beast with minimal to no assistance then so be it. She would place her trust within the jinchurikki knowing full well that the girl had never failed her before.


    Nozomi's request had scarcely left her lips when Honiko used Lightning Flash Blade Creation to summon a scroll into her hand. Honiko nodded and unrolled the scroll. A small white snake poofed into existence near the end of the parchment. The snake opened his mouth but then closed it. He could tell by Honiko's body language and the fact that he was in the presence of Hizashi that now was not the time for jokes. He'd assist with the signing process and within moments Nozomi's name would be etched onto the scroll. She was now a signatory to the Contract.

    Once that process was complete, Nozomi wasted no time sitting down and entering her inner realm. Honiko's expression remained placid and unmoved. Inside though, she was a whirlwind of emotions. Fear. Concern. Pride. She prayed to Jashin that Nozomi would find the strength to overcome this beast. Hizashi was mildly amused by her willingness to jump straight into the fight. She knew he favored bold and decisive action, especially when it paid off with victory. The power move reflected well on them both even though it was fraught with danger. He complimented Nozomi's boldness. He then inquired as to whether Honiko had told her that a loss to Isobu at this stage would result in her death. There was no use lying, but even if she was sure he couldn't tell, she wouldn't even dream of misleading him.

    "No my Lord I have not....she doesn't quite know what's at stake but she's very intuitive. I'm sure she can imagine. I am also certain that she does not believe it will be easy....but she knows that it is necessary. She has never failed me before and I don't expect her to start today."

    Hizashi took a position near Nozomi and touched her. Honiko could guess what he was up to. He wants to watch.... If he was doing it then Honiko saw no harm in joining him. The Sage sat near her disciple at an angle. She took the Lotus Position and intensely focused her Mind's Eye on Nozomi. She shut out all the other activity on the island and focused on her and her alone. She was extremely proficient with the Mind's Eye of the Kagura and was able to sense both of the chakras inside the girl. The Tailed Beast and the Nozomi's own. The interactions between them could be analyzed and broken down with utter precision. It would allow her to paint a vivid and clear mental picture of what was going on. It wouldn't be as clear as what Hizashi could see but it would allow her to monitor the fight. And if worse came to worse, she'd intervene. They would lose face and Hizashi would be disappointed, but Honiko could stomach that if it meant saving her disciple's life.

    With the contract being signed, and Nozomi's path locked in, the battle for control would commence. She continued her meditation as usual. The snake had been very helpful in the process, and Nozomi was fairly sure that when it had returned, it would tell the others that something big was happening soon and to be prepared for summons. The way it had reacted upon being summoned, immediately taking note of the seriousness of the situation lent credence to that it would let the other snakes know to be prepared.

    -

    In her inner realm, while Nozomi was lowering the defenses of the seal, the 3 tails began to talk to her, gaining a sense of anger as it saw a taste of freedom, a chance to escape its prison. As the seal began to loosen, the 3 tails sent out a wave of coral, filling their immediate surroundings with the weak stuff. Nozomi smirked at the showing that it made. If that was supposed to intimidate her, the Bijuu had another thing coming. Nozomi had been given a task, and she didn't ever fail those, no matter what. It would take more than some coral to make her rethink her actions.

    Nozomi didn't mind that he was mad at her, or thought that she was being selfish. She didn't particularly care what people thought about her, let alone a Bijuu. However, as he said that Honiko's loyalty wasn't to her, the smirk on her face dropped, shifting to a scowl. Her ire was placed towards the Tailed beast now, in a manner that it hadn't been before. How dare he think that Honiko's loyalty was questionable. Nozomi and Honiko shared a bond that was insurmountable, of that Nozomi held no doubt. To think otherwise was an outrage.

    "I didn't need you for the Prison. My strength is my own. Your strength is mine too. This world is about strength, and I've got plenty of it without you. I earned my power. I'll take yours too."

    From there, Nozomi readied herself for combat. Focusing her will on herself, Nozomi was fully prepared to take damage, and with no way to get a sneak attack on her, she would be able to tank much more damage than usual. Against a Bijuu, it probably wouldn't be that much more, but every little bit helped. She was a well conditioned warrior, used to taking damage. Not quite as tough as the Turtle's shell, but hopefully tough enough to take a hit or so if needed.

    Nozomi was a very perceptive girl, as she always had been. She'd been taught growing up to be quiet and listen, watch, and take in everything she could, for that would make her the most useful as a ninja. Of course, she'd been being groomed to be a Jinchuuriki used by the village as a weapon, but that training had been invaluable to her early stages, and had stuck with her forever. Due to that, and to her special connection and obsession with Honiko, she'd studied her during every single encounter they'd had together, with a certain degree of intensity.

    She already knew the hand seals required for the Summoning Jutsu. It was something she'd paid special attention to, as Nozomi had always somewhat wanted to be a summoner herself. It would let her have a powerful creature without relying on the 3 Tails for power himself. Especially considering a Tailed Beast was a dangerous thing to use, as using it without full cooperation was a danger to the seal that stored it.

    That said, between her newly signed contract and the knowledge of the hand seals for the summoning technique, Nozomi was perfectly set up to take on Isobu without any backup from other people, because she didn't need Honiko or Hizashi or Raijin's help. She knew that if she wanted to, she could probably summon the head boss of the snakes, although that wasn't a thing she wanted to do right now. There were others that were probably better suited to it, and if she got the head boss killed in a fight against a Tailed Beast, she would likely be suffering the repercussions of that for quite some time.

    Still, Nozomi remembered something being said about Manda in the past. A large snake, incredibly powerful, and incredibly vain. Not likely to want to be summoned by somebody who couldn't effectively wield his power. Not likely to want to be summoned by someone who couldn't defeat him in combat either. No, she shouldn't use him unless she really needed to. For a shinobi of her caliber though, there was no doubt that she could summon him, and not only that, but control him as well. Compared to a Bijuu, summons weren't too powerful, but could hold their own. Honiko could tear Balerion apart with ease, and she didn't have a Bijuu. Nozomi was at least on her level. It stood to reason that she'd be able to tame Manda, and between them, they would definitely be able to take on the 3 tails.

    However, she wasn't going to use him from the start. Nozomi didn't have the luxury to afford that unless she really needed him. Summons drained chakra she was sure, and the stronger they were, the more chakra they would drain. In fact, Nozomi didn't really want to open up with a summons to begin with. Instead, she was going to start out fairly normal for her.

    Forming the Ram seal, Nozomi directed a spray of water at Isobu, making a large series of waves head his way. It wasn't exactly the strongest of openings, but it let Nozomi set the field. Isobu had an affinity to water, but so did Nozomi, and unlike Isobu, she also had Raiton. The turtle was tough, and would probably be strong as well, given its size, but that made it a large target, and in a body of water, she would be able to hit him even further. Besides that, the waves had a lot of force behind them to begin with, and she wasn't quite certain that Isobu had the versatility to use the Suiton in the same ways as she could. Her ability to mold chakra was quite different than a turtle's would be.

    The Great Exploding Water Colliding Wave would fill the rocky field of her inner world, making the place more or less a large lake. The power of the waves would be immense, but again, that wasn't the entire purpose of the waves. Nozomi just needed a little bit of set up, and she would punish the 3 tails for its insolence.

    This girl's arrogance almost rewarded with a laugh from the giant turtle. Although he knows that hit a mark about Honiko, and that to him was a liability. Vulnerable as it were.

    "That prison was child's play full of the weak. Anyone worth their salt could've done the same thing. Your strength doesn't include mine, and even then it wouldn't be truly yours so long as you continue to be used until they no longer need you." It makes Isobu furious on how long he has been used as a tool for war, and in a sense even Nozomi was being used for war whether she knows it or not. Her stance and body language spoke to Isobu that she was getting ready to attack. Much to his anticipation, Nozomi started off with large suiton technique. A strong one, but not strong enough. With a sharp inhale of his enormous lungs, Isobu exhales an equally large blast of air pressure at the lapping waves. Carrying the blast is the deafening roar that seems to make the rocks tremble and the sand ripple from the bijuu.

    Upon impact of the two waves, Isobu's air pressure pushes back the colliding waves. Unfortunately this results in an attempt to send the technique back at Nozomi! Not wasting time to see if the waves were a hit or miss. Isobu builds up an enormous amount of chakra from within as his eyes burned with hatred and bloodlust. Then Isobu will launch in rapid fire of small bijuu blasts at Nozomi's general direction. Taking advantage of both the waves Isobu reckoned that she would evade, and then the widespread volley of bijuu blasts leaves Nozomi little room to move around. As not only does each blast was capable of exploding with bijuu chakra within 5 meter radius each; but it also covers a 30 meter radius with Nozomi at the center. Then Isobu opted to circle counter-clockwise of Nozomi to reposition, although he doesn't move closer just yet.

    ((I'm going to count the breath as an application of Tailed Beast Shockwave, cause otherwise it's a bit unrealistic. Even still))

    Nozomi was almost uncharacteristically agitated. The 3 tails had struck a nerve by implying that Honiko was only using her. Nozomi knew there was more to it than that. They were close. But that nerve had been struck, and to compound it, he was attacking her ego now as well. Saying that the Prison's assault was child's play? Anyone could have done it? Nozomi's eyes burned with a righteous indignation. Her accomplishments were just that: Accomplishments. Nobody else could have done what she did, or they'd have done it already. The Blood Prison was one of the most secure places in the world, and not one of their people had been able to hold Nozomi back.

    The sheer amount of Air Pressure that the 3 tails used was enough to knock the waves back at Nozomi, although the force behind them would be significantly less than it had been moving forward. Still, it wasn't something she wanted to really deal with. Forming the hand seals for Water Heaven's Convergence, Nozomi split the waves that moved towards her, and quelled the water with but a whim. The likelihood of her falling prey to a returned jutsu of her own was minimal. Kiri's exclusive jutsu had helped her out many times at this point. Water was Nozomi's ally, not her enemy. Running forward, Nozomi began to close the distance between her and Isobu slightly, bearing down on her prey.

    Still, she needed to be careful not to blow through all of her chakra. She'd be on the defensive a lot through this fight, but with more careful planning, she might be able to whittle down the Tailed Beast's chakra, exhaust him, and then assimilate its chakra into herself, fully commanding it. With the wave casually deflected, Nozomi replied to him, the fury behind her words evident."Child's Play? Maybe to beasts like you and me, but to anyone else? Not in the slightest. Where you're wrong is that nobody else could have pulled it off with the ease and grace that I did! Nobody! And Honiko isn't using me. The Society isn't using me. I joined them. I'm their leader!"

    In the back of Nozomi's head, there was some doubt. Some leader, you're losing your cool at a turtle. In the end, Nozomi's level headed self had a limit, and that was when it was implied that Honiko was only using Nozomi. Her master trusted her, had trained her up to be a true force to be reckoned with. And Nozomi was ultimately loyal to Honiko, the two having formed an unbreakable bond over the past couple of years. Nozomi had never failed Honiko, so of course she wanted her to take care of things. Other people failed. Nozomi would not.

    Isobu charged up his chakra, amassing the dense energy and letting loose a barrage of small orbs. Nozomi used the Body Flicker technique, launching herself with extreme speed to the side by 100 meters, not confident that she could take hits from the Tailed Beast balls for long, or even block them with her own defensive jutsu. Narrowly avoiding the cluster of fast moving balls as well as their small explosions, Nozomi grimaced as she tried to calm herself down. Within her impossibly fast speed, Nozomi was easily able to dodge, and she found herself ready for the fight. She just needed to keep Isobu in range, but also make sure she had enough time to dodge his attacks. Close quarters might not be the way to go.

    Being frustrated wasn't going to do her any favors. Isobu was larger, stronger, had more chakra, was more inteligent than Nozomi, and had a shell that was sure to be incredibly durable. The odds weren't in Nozomi's favor, but she had to calm down or this battle would be a guaranteed loss. Her excitement started to grow as she realized the fight was going to be an up hill battle for her, something she wouldn't be able to end fast, and could actually enjoy.

    Water from the explosions hitting the veritable lake that Nozomi had made blasted up into the air, showering the field with tiny rain. Nozomi commandeered the water as it was falling, and lobbed needles of rain water at Isobu. He might have an insane durability, but Nozomi could whittle him down with continual attacks. From underneath Isobu, the water he stood on would begin to launch upwards, turning into spikes that would pelt his underbelly, the bottoms of his feet where he stood, and would continue to do so, needles of water machine gunning upwards towards him.

    Nozomi would not let up on this assault, and would continue to have that working away at Isobu for as long as they fought. She had to be a thorn in his side. Nozomi would keep Isobu in her sight, waiting to see his next moves. She had a plan, but it wasn't time to enact it yet. She had summons, but she didn't really want to use them unless she absolutely needed to. That was sure to drain a lot of chakra. Nozomi needed all the chakra she could get.

    Parent Technique: N/A
    Hand Seals: Tiger, Dog, Monkey, Snake, Boar, Tiger
    Description: This technique enables the user to control water and moisture around oneself much like Gaara controls his sand. It can be used to block most incoming attacks, bind or drown opponents, and shape the water into various attacks, allowing the user in conjunction with the Summoning Technique to allow water-based summonings to fight in areas that it normally need water to move around by either trapping the target in the same water or maneuvering the water to allow the summon to chase the target. It is able to extract and utilise groundwater, and as is very effective most areas, but useless in rocky areas.
    Weaknesses: Just as the technique states it must require a source of water in order to be used. Rocky areas, or dry environments with very little moisture will make this technique unusable. Because freeform manipulation is only attached to the user's base Coordination, techniques, unique abilities, or items that increase the user's coordination do not affect one's freeform manipulation speed. Techniques, unique abilities, or items that wish to boost one's freeform manipulation capabilities most specify that they are doing so and are thus evaluated on that basis.

    The God Among Us Empty Re: The God Among Us

    Post by Nozomi on Fri Sep 13, 2019 9:49 am

    [48 houring.]

    Clearing the distance was a simple matter for the young blonde, as her speed was already immense without considering the Body Flicker technique. Between her dodging and repositioning, Nozomi made her way into range of Isobu rather immediately, and the water needles peppered the creatures face and front, as that had been facing Nozomi. Sure, his shell was hard, but his eye wouldn't be nearly as tough, and needles would hurt him immensely. Perhaps even blinding the creature.

    Her spikes and needles growing underneath Isobu peppered the underbelly and the bottoms of the feet of the tailed beast, whittling away at his constitution and perhaps injuring him even slightly. Perhaps making movement more difficult. She doubted it, but damage was damage, regardless. Nozomi couldn't use low ranked techniques against Isobu, she knew that. Water Heaven's Convergence was going to be a huge benefit to Nozomi. A low cost, high ranking attack that she could maintain for a while, without draining herself extremely fast. And this battle probably wouldn't be a fast one, and she would ned every advantage she could get if she was going to win. Nozomi was a "win by inches" girl when she had to be though.

    -

    Taking advantage of the situation though, Nozomi would move quickly. While spikes of water and needles continued to shoot upward into Isobu, she moved walls of water up his legs, keeping him in contact with the water. If he were to run of jump, she wouldn't try and restrain him, but would maintain her connection of the water to the beast, stretching it out to keep her Isobu drenched and connected to the larger lake that Nozomi had made. Nozomi's Raiton was a powerful tool for her, something she was incredibly good at. And she was perfectly set up to take out the beast.

    See, the trick she figured was that Isobu was absolutely stronger than she was. There was no doubt, Nozomi would not win a head to head confrontation with the beast, but she could pelt him from a distance, use her water to extend her Raiton to hit him, even should she miss an attack. Raiton travelled through Suiton, and with a large volume of water, it would diffuse long before reaching her.

    Nozomi moved through the hand seals for Viper's Wrath, a jutsu of her own creation. Aiming down towards Isobu's lower half, so if he were to move, the jutsu would hit Nozomi's water and still blast the Raiton through it and affect the turtle just the same, and pointed her hand, while Isobu's eye was either closed or hurting from the previous needle barrage it had taken. See, Nozomi wasn't a time waster in combat. She knew that capitalizing on even the smallest thing was something she had to do in order to win. When there was little time, Nozomi didn't waste any of it. From her hand, a serpent made of pure Raiton launched out at immense speed, and would likely hit the turtle or the water underneath it. The force behind it wasn't anything to laugh at either.

    With the barrage of needles and spikes below the turtle, he wouldn't likely notice the water creeping up its legs, as it was already drenched by water to begin with, but even if he did, it wouldn't matter too much. Dodging the attack wasn't going to help. Nozomi knew she had to pull out all her tricks here to wound Isobu, wear him down. The serpent would continue to travel forward, either pushing Isobu along with it, should it hit him, or travelling through the water until it reached 500 meters, before the serpent would launch upwards into the sky, disappearing.

    Either way, Isobu would have taken quite a hit, something he would really feel. Nozomi was not a push over. She had her own strength, and Isobu had chosen the wrong girl to rile up.

    Water Heaven's Convergence (A) -3 upkeep:
    Spoiler:
    Name: Water Release: Water-Heavens Convergence
    Rank: A
    Activation Cost: 10
    Upkeep Cost: 5
    Range: 100 m.
    Speed: One tier below the user's base Coordination
    Element: Water
    Skill: Ninjutsu
    Classification: Village Exclusive (Kiri)
    Requirements: Preexisting Water
    Parent Technique: N/A
    Hand Seals: Tiger, Dog, Monkey, Snake, Boar, Tiger
    Description: This technique enables the user to control water and moisture around oneself much like Gaara controls his sand. It can be used to block most incoming attacks, bind or drown opponents, and shape the water into various attacks, allowing the user in conjunction with the Summoning Technique to allow water-based summonings to fight in areas that it normally need water to move around by either trapping the target in the same water or maneuvering the water to allow the summon to chase the target. It is able to extract and utilise groundwater, and as is very effective most areas, but useless in rocky areas.
    Weaknesses: Just as the technique states it must require a source of water in order to be used. Rocky areas, or dry environments with very little moisture will make this technique unusable. Because freeform manipulation is only attached to the user's base Coordination, techniques, unique abilities, or items that increase the user's coordination do not affect one's freeform manipulation speed. Techniques, unique abilities, or items that wish to boost one's freeform manipulation capabilities most specify that they are doing so and are thus evaluated on that basis.

    Viper's Wrath (S) -20 Activation:
    Spoiler:
    Name: Viper's Wrath
    Rank: S
    Power: S
    Activation Cost: 25
    Upkeep Cost:
    Range: 500 meters
    Speed: S
    Element: Raiton
    Skill: Ninjutsu
    Classification: Secret
    Requirements:
    Parent Technique:
    Hand Seals: Bird, Ox, Ram, Snake, Dragon
    Description: After performing the requisite hand seals, Nozomi's chakra launches out in a wide path in front of her, out of one of her hands. The Lightning takes on the form of a fanged serpent, and travels in a straight line towards wherever she pointed. The serpent itself is 10 meters wide, and stretches out to a full length of 100 meters. After reaching 500 meters from it's origin, the serpent curls up and launches into the air, charging the sky and forming storm clouds. Anything caught in its path is devastated by the power of the technique, and should they happen to survive, will have their coordination reduced by -1 Tier and a -1 advantage for 3 posts.

And this battle probably wouldn't be a fast one, and she would ned every advantage she could get if she was going to win. Nozomi was a "win by inches" girl when she had to be though.

    I'm not sure how you are using WHC when there is no water nearby. Isobu blasted all of the water Nozomi threw at him back at her when she was 400 meters away. With her current distance, she is at least 300 meters from the nearby source of water. The rest of this place is sand and rocks. So unless you come up with another source of water that's within WHC's range, you cannot use it since it specifically says that it requires pre-existing water.

    The little blonde was fast on her feet as he watched her every move. He found it a bit amusing that she chose to be so close to him. Still she was quick to try to seize any advantage she thinks she might have. Although there wasn't any water nearby so there wasn't needles flying into his eye nor attached to him. Either way it wouldn't have phased him at all since pain was nothing to him.

    Now it was Isobu's turn. His eye trained on Nozomi, and knew what she was going to do and when. He was gonna surprise her by suddenly charge at her direction before she started weaving those pesky seals. Sure she could fire off her technique, but before he reaches within melee Isobu slams his three tails into the sand causing seismic tremors throughout the area. With Nozomi being at least within 50 meters now, she will not only have a hard time staying on her feet but it'll feel like the vibration is trying to rupture her organs. Then he used these tails slam to quickly loom over Nozomi. He'll know when she'll fire, and he will dodge it by stepping to the side as he attempts to slam his fist on Nozomi's body to which she will be crushed.

    Still, not leaving much room for her to breathe, Isobu slams his other fist at her. Even if she manages to dodge miraculously, the shockwaves and tremors emitting from Isobu's strikes is enough to force her to the ground. The force of these shockwaves is about A rank, and if these shockwaves hit they will toss Nozomi in the air. If that happens, Isobu becomes ruthless as one tail swipes from below to strongly smash Nozomi knocking her further above ground. Only to meet with a second tail coming from above forcing her downwards again. Then a third tail swipes from the right, and essentially Isobu is batting her from one strong tail to the next while suspended into the air as each tails carries the same strength as he possess. Nozomi could never touch the ground since the tail would swing under her and send her back up. Then after the tails have smacked her about 24 times, a final slam from above of his tail forces Nozomi downward. Right onto Isobu's waiting clawed hand as he snatches her body and squeezes her body. Gore will definitely be on the menu as he attempts to crush the organs and break bones if not her skull. Then Isobu will finish by swinging his arm that held Nozomi and strongly throws her into a thick boulder to which she will bust through possibly breaking more bones and blood splatters everywhere. Where she will crash through boulder after boulder until she is about 30 meters away now. Now Isobu waits to see if Nozomi is even alive after this.
