Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 11/01/2017 The dust has cleared after a fierce clash against the rebel Ikko Ikki monks. Now, as a tense period of calm spread over the island nation of Japan the students of Edo Bugei must figure out how to proceed in life after experience such intense conflicts and such deep loss.

That was it. It was done. Mirai had feared some kind of interrogation - why do you want to change clubs? - but it was as simple as filling in a couple of forms. If it had been any more complicated than that she probably would have backed out of it; it simply would have been stressful, and she would have felt like she was doing something wrong, and with Mirai being the person she was that would have been enough to prevent her going ahead with the change. But as it was, it was quick and easy to do, and Mirai had completed the necessary forms for it.

It felt… strangely freeing, actually. The thought of returning to Bugei Club meetings hadn’t exactly inspired hope or joy in Mirai. There was too much fighting, even if it was only sparring, and Mirai wanted as little to do with that as she could get away with nowadays. It reminded her of the battle in Kanazawa, which wasn’t exactly something she was keen to be reminded of. And though choosing the football club to replace it was a bit of an oddball choice (Mirai didn’t exactly have a great degree of experience at playing football) it was an exciting one - though the only sport she’d had the fortune to properly play was kendo she was certainly interested in trying a few more, and this was a prime opportunity to do that.

Mirai planned on heading back to her dorm room for the afternoon to get a bit of study done, and maybe look up some more stuff about football and practise whatever she found online as some basic skills for the sport. First, though, she stopped by the cafeteria in the dorms common area to nab a hot chocolate - it was on the way, she might as well, and the autumn weather called for a hot drink - and so she found herself a place to sit and sipped the beverage, hands wrapped around the warmth of the cup. It was pretty relaxing to do so, and Mirai felt a lot more at ease right now than she had in while since the return to Edo Bugei from Kanazawa.

For one reason or another Rin found herself in the dorm cafeteria, why was she there well not even Rin know that answer. It seemed to be happening a lot lately were she would be doing something and in the next she’d find herself someplace completely different. Regardless of the distance between the two places she would never remember making the trip. To her it felt like time travel much like when one falls asleep on a take off and don’t wake till your landing, its an odd feeling to have time past but not be aware of it. however, since she was already there Rin figured she’d make the most of it. The place was rather empty, but something did catch her attention, a young girl sitting by self enjoying what appeared to be a hot beverage. A wicked smile crossed Rin’s face, it seemed she had found something interesting and was about to have some fun.
With all do hast Rin made her way over to the girl and sat down right across from her.

“Someone seems to be enjoying herself, whatcha got there?”
Rin had never been one for the ‘proper’ way to interact with a stranger, Rin simple preference to jump right in and insert herself in to another life, situation, you name it. the concept of private and personal space did not apply to her.

Mirai glanced up as someone sat across from her at the table. Though it might have been nicer to ask first before just randomly sitting down there like that, they were all Edo Bugei students here so it wasn’t like this girl was some creepy stranger on the train late at night trying to strike up a conversation. Besides, the place was pretty empty at the moment and Mirai could understand if this new girl didn’t want to sit by herself. Mirai didn’t mind the company, either, and it wasn’t like this girl was interrupting anything so it was fine for her to sit there. Who knew, maybe Mirai would turn out to make a new friend out of this girl, friendships could happen randomly like that.

“Someone seems to be enjoying herself, whatcha got there?” said the newcomer.

“Oh, it’s just a hot chocolate,” Mirai said. She looked down, swirled the liquid in the cups slightly, and took another sip. “I think it’s very nice, though.”

She looked up at the girl across from her again. “Are you up to anything today?” Mirai inquired, trying to show polite interest. She didn’t want to sit there seeming too distant or rude. She couldn’t really say at this point whether or not she would even like this new girl, but uncertainty of someone was hardly a reason not to be polite to them.

“You don’t say…” Rin slightly trailed off, it had been many years since she’d had hot chocolate as a beverage of choice. Back when she was a child she was rather fond of they drink but then again those were happier and more innocent times. As she was about to drift into memory’s best left alone the other girl recalled Rin back to the mortal realm.

Are you up to anything today?
Rin blinked at the girl before tilting her head tot the side as the began to think.
What was I doing? ... it took a bit then like a flash bulb it came to her, in a very Rin like fashion she did the over the top head snap back and fist slamming down into her palm and exclaimed. “Oh right! “ The girl would definitely notice the grim smile that clearly indicated that what Rin was about to say really annoyed her. “I was searching for someone, so I could get him to return to his work, but he seems to be avoiding to me for some reason. “ clearly Rin was not happy with being blown off, but she quickly took a deep breath to recompose herself. “Anyway don’t worry about that problem he’ll get what’s coming to him. “ Finally settled down Rin finally realized that she had yet to introduce herself to the little flower before her. “Oh but how rude of me I have yet to introduce, you may call my Rin Naya.”

They say introduction are always the best way to start any conversation, relationship, etc. however Rin never once for normal convention and hardly ever introduced herself, however lately she’d seemed to get lectured on ‘action like a normal person’ but really what is normal and in Rin’s opinion she was quite normal.

Mirai sipped her hot chocolate as she listened to this new girl rattle off. Looking for someone? He’ll get what’s coming to him? Mirai didn’t really understand what she was talking about. Whatever it was, it sounded like something quite dramatic had happened, and Mirai wondered exactly what that was. Though she didn’t feel it would be polite to pry too deeply into a stranger’s personal matters. If the girl wanted to tell her, she would, and Mirai wouldn’t push her to.

Mirai nodded and offered her own introduction. “Okada Mirai. It’s nice to meet you, Naya-san,” Mirai said, inclining her head. Mirai was glad Rin had introduced herself - it showed some level of common courtesy, more than Mirai had originally assumed Rin would have, and more common courtesy was always, without exception, a good thing.

“I think it sounds like you must be a very busy person,” Mirai commented. The way she talked about all this searching for someone made it sound quite involved and important and of course (in Mirai’s line of thinking) that equated to a busy lifestyle. “Does it ever get tiring?” That was also just a simple connection - of course the more you did, the more tiring it would be, that just seemed like common sense.

Okada Mirai, Rin would commit the girls name to memory. Not because she felt there was a pressing need to remember the girls name per say but rather do what she did with all people mercilessly learn everything about them as she could, it was nothing personal like some would be lead to believe after all it was just her job as this girl was soon about to find out.

“Busy beyond belief, and yes it can be quite tiring at times but alas this is my lords will, so I must comply.” This was a clear understatement, but the sentiment was not far from the truth. “See the thing is my lord has… a need of sorts, to find unique individuals. But who is to find these induvial you ask well its yours truly. Now I did not volunteer for this task… honestly its more of a punishment but that’s neither here nor there. “ Rin must have either really tired or just stressed out for it was not normal for her to go on about her mission like this but then again they do say sharing one’s burden soul with another does lighten one’s life, how much that is true no one know but regardless Okada was about to get a lot of it. “now what happens once these unique individuals are found well then I have to mange then which ties in to my time searching for people so really these two tasks are contradictory but whatever. The worst part is that these unique individuals usually have unique personalities… by which I mean problematic.” much like a certain engineer that ran off on her today. “I barely get any rest little lone sleep and I’m pretty sure my blood is 80% caffeine now” looming closely at Rin it wouldn’t be hard to see just how warn out she was if the bags were not enough of indicator. “honestly its all because of that damned war, they may not show it up everyone’s still paranoid.”

With that she hit at the heart of the matter, for her lord was not the only one who would be building up their fighting force. She was pretty sure every little lord was preparing for the backlash that would no doubt be felt soon, and if they weren’t they were fools who would not last the coming storm.

“Sorry for rambling about annoying stuff like that when you were just enjoying your drink. “

Working for a lord…? That didn’t say too much. Who did this girl, Rin, work for, Mirai wondered, and why? Sure, she said something about a punishment, but that didn’t really say much about what she’d done to be given that punishment to begin with, or who was enforcing that punishment. Whatever it was must have been a pretty strong motivator because it seemed like she was going to a lot of effort solely for the sake of her “work” - it seemed to leave her very busy and tired, from the way Rin described it, and Mirai wondered, worried even, if this girl might be pushing herself a bit too hard than was necessary.

And on top of that, it sounded like she was wrapped up in something that wasn’t… quite so good, to put it mildly. All this talk about finding people - finding them for what? Mirai only hoped that it was something more benign that the first things that sprang to mind about violence, an idea which she tried to push to the back of her mind quick-stat.

“No, it’s all right, you’re not bothering me.” Mirai said. She was thankful that Rin had been thoughtful enough to apologise, though. “It sounds like your, um, your work must be pretty stressful sometimes. Please look after yourself.”

Another thought came to Mirai. “Do you have to do all your work alone? Wouldn’t it be easier for you if your, uh, lord found someone else to help you?” She felt like it was a safe enough question to ask. Wouldn’t be too prying into business that wasn’t hers but it still gave them something to talk about.

It was a valid question, more handles would be ideal whoever there was an issue with that, “It would be easier if there was another assisting however ever since the insurrection trust is a hard thing to come by, after all this work is highly secretive military stuff and last thing they need is to have a turncoat with such delicate information.”

Such was the way with all black ops stuff highly classified (Rin had probably said to much already) and hard to bring new blood into hence why the recruitment part of her job was so difficult, the evaluation process took a nauseating long time.
“Personally I can’t argue with it after all if things were handled with this much care Edo would not have been the mess it was.” truth be told there was no way to prevent that nonsense as things stood, after all it was a symptom of the system and nothing else.

“But enough about me and my problems, I need to get my mind of all this… I know why don’t you tell me about your self Okada, that is if you don’t mind.”
