(Use of Training Dummy : 1/6 for Chakra Control)

Asura was hard at work. Despite having completed the Genin exam and passing, it felt no good to him. It was more like pity or humiliation. Asura couldn't let that go. Working on a new training dummy, Asura continued to assault it with vigor and drive. Each blow carried more and more fury than the last. He had not drawn his blade as he was taking the time to practice his Taijutsu as well as his chakra control. He delivered blows towards the dummy, and while doing that, channeled his chakra into each of his blows.

And so far he was really doing a beating to the training dummy. A series of kicks, punches, even grappling to try and twist the limbs. The sound of wood cracking was the sign for him to stop as he moved to attack it again. He kept hits up for hours, feeling his chakra being depleted as much as his stamina was but he still kept going.

"Even for a ninja, there is a sense of 'overkill' ," a voice spoke from behind Asura. Asura glanced over his shoulder, to find it was none other than Asura's Master-- Roku. The black haired older man in his red robes waited in a sage like manner as he observed Asura fight the dummy. Already the dummy was taking considerable wear and tear especially made of basic straw. "Think he had enough?"

Unfortunately, Asura did not agree. He delivered another strong kick to the dummy and a punch to its face. "If you have come to scold me about the exam, I said I wouldn't fall for that again. I can't keep apologizing." Asura grunted.

Roku sighed, recalling how torn up Asura had been after the exam. It had been a day ago. "I need no apology. You already did a good job, and you shouldn't feel apologetic." he replied.

"I was a JOKE!!" Asura said as he jumped and kicked the dummy to the neck, causing the head to go flying off. Roku winced at that move. Asura certainly had gotten stronger with his Taijutsu training.  He clearly was using it as a coping tool for his anger, but still had a good reserve of resentment inside him.

"Asura..." Roku spoke but Asura turned around angry.

"Master, by all rules and account, I should of not have passed! That was pity or privilege. I cannot stand for that," Asura shouted, "There was no honor of me passing that exam if I couldn't see through that stupid trick! That was humiliating!" Roku continued to calmly listen to him, casting a firm but calm look upon his pupil. "That was no victory. How can I expect to be a ninja if I couldn't see through that?! I should of failed!"

TWAAP!!

Asura was struck by ROku-- an open handed palm strike right to the head that knocked Asura back a bit. Asura was stunned for a second but shook it off, and looked to see Roku's clearly serious expression.

"Asura... listen to me" Roku commanded. Biting his tongue lightly, Asura stopped and looked to his master. "Yes-- it is true that you did poorly detecting Genjutsu. That was no secret, even to the proctors. " he explained calmly, "But that was not all that you were being tested on."

"The Genin exams focus on the three fundamentals to a ninja. " he said, raising up his fingers to illustrate each point. "Ninjutsu, Genjutsu and Taijutsu. The exam focused on ALL of this. " Asura listened carefully, his anger simmering down . He understood why Roku struck him and that question was now not needed, as he knew Roku could be firm and harsh when needed. "Had you been able to pass thorugh the Genjutsu, you would of been taken elsewhere to test the other skills. However... the reason you passed was not out of some pity or talent. You passed because you were able to display EXCEPTIONAL skill at two out of three key traits to being a ninja. "

This Asura didn't know but still had his doubts. "You don't have to make stuff up to make me feel better, Master. I am not a child--"

"Don't insult me Asura. I have never pampered you as some sort of privileged brat," Roku said sharply, making his point true. "Yes, you did not do well against the Genjutsu exam and you should make it a priority to improve on later, however, your exam was based on your proficiency on all fronts. "

Asura's anger slowly began to simmer down. It seemed that his misunderstanding over the reason why he passed seemed understandable.
"There was no favors or pity involved in your exam. You passed because they deemed your skills worthy of a shinobi, otherwise they would of not allowed you to pass. " Roku explained. "So take pride in this, Asura... you are now a ninja. No one can argue that now."

Roku approached Asura. At first Asura thought he was going to be striked again, but Roku placed his hand on his shoulder kindly. THe kind look that Roku had on a lot of the time was back as he now spoke with compassion. Roku really was the best mentor Asura knew. He was as kind as he could be firm. "And I never did anything to pamper you. You know that while you have great talent and power from our clan, you worked hard and pushed yourself to master your skills-- without the Tengan.  You have gotten far stronger than before, and you should take pride in what you have accomplished up till now."

Realizing this, Asura let out a breath. "Yes, Master. I promise I won't let this opportunity be wasted." he said. "I just... I can't forgive myself for making such a huge mistake. I want to be better. "

Roku smiled, glad to know that Asura, while talented was not beyond hubris of his own mistakes. It was the only way any ninja could learn. "You should forgive yourself, Asura, and strive to become stronger from this point on. And in time you shall." he said with another pat on the shoulder. "Now... rest. You have trained long enough and you do deserve some R&R. "

With that Roku, left heading back towards the Jiin estate mansion and leaving Asura with the now beheaded dummy. Looking to the head he had kicked, Asura slowly walked over to it. He picked up the head and put it back on the dummy's body, placing it back on it. He let out a large breath and turned to leave.
---
Asura's belly was full thanks to a good meal with the Jiin clan. Master Roku as well as others were there but he was still restless. Though he took pride to the fact he made it out of the academy and became a genin, he was not satisfied with the event of things. He couldn't accept his defeat as any reason as a passing grade. As he lied in his bed, he looked at the Hidden Rock headband he left on the bedside table as it gleamed in the moonlight from out of his window.

He never cared for those official headbands. he had a good one and one that suited him just fine. His Flame Kanji headband he would often have on his arm or belt. He understood it was meant to protect one's head, but he was a bit of a show off in the end. An enemy couldn't hit your head if you can't be caught.

Either way, the truth was, he didn't want to just accept he was a ninja just because of his clan or anything. He needed to prove it to himself. ANd that meant to actually challenge someone and see in a straight up fight. And hopefully, Genjutsu wouldn't be an issue.

He didn't get much sleep that night as he tossed and turned, his frustration amounting as the night went on.
---

That morning, Asura wolfed down his breakfast and got out. He had a few days till his first mission and team assignment was meant to be given. So he had time for himself for a while. He left for the village, deciding to try and see if he could find something that would prove his worth as a ninja. In the end only actual missions would be a start but he wouldn't need to wait long for those. Even if he had to do solo missions, he would still earn respect at that point on.

He moved through the rock village, sprinting and leaping from building to building with ease. He was trying to spot something out of order he could fix. Be it simple or complex, in the end in his most subconscious level, he just wanted to find something to boost his own sense or reassurance in his abilities. He KNEW he was capable as a ninja, but he wanted to prove it as well.

He spent time running around for about an hour till he heard something nearby in the merchant district. It was at a nearby casino-- meant for the tourists and gamblers filled with a few pachinco machines. There was a bit of a fuss going on.

People were gathering as it appeared someone had struck the jackpot or something. Either that or someone was causing problems. Curious, Asura approached and pushed through the crowd.

The inside of the casino was simple, lanes of the pachinco machines spinning, and some people were still playing them. However, many had stopped and looked to the commotion. A rather large man was laughing after he had now a bag full of winnings. A man was at his feet, flat on the ground after a knock on the head. It seemed -- that some guy was mad at him for having gotten the winnings. That or the other guy stole the winnings from the now downed fellah.

"Hahahaha!" the man bellowed, swinging the bag of metal bearings over his shoulder with ease. "Life hands you wins and losses, so accept them graciously."

The man was unusual. He was a large fellow, muscular with markings over his body-- A form of tribal tattoo as he was shirtless, bearing his muscular torso and arms to those who looked to him. He wore a strange almost holy garb of white with shoes and a cloth around his waist. His hair was white and wild in nature and hung off his back, along with a beard to his chin. He appeared to be in his late forties. Also he had a rather long katana hanging from the back of his waist, being made of a rather glamorous design and golden markings. It was clear he was a swordsman at the very least.

The man on the ground grunted and tried to crawl away, only to have the larger guy place a foot firmly on his back keeping from moving. "You owe me an apology for so rudely interrupting my winning streak-- or perhaps you can pay me back with your winnings." he said, bearing a rather cunning smirk.

At that point, Asura had jumped down from his perch on the rooftop to look at the commotion. Looking from the crowd, Asura saw one thing-- his eyes. They glowed a strange white. He had never seen something like that.

"I-I ain't giving you anything, you old fart! Ya rigged that machin--!" He was silenced by a sudden thrust of his other foot into the man's gut, silencing him.

Lifting him up, the big guy held him up till they were looking face to face. "Don't go making claims without proof, you sorry loser. Ya don't wanna pay up, I'll ring it out of you!"

Just when it looked like things were going to get ugly, one of the casino officials and a guard came over. "Excuse me, sir!" the manager, apparently shouted to him, stopping the scene. "Kindly release him. We don't want any incidents here so please let him go. "

He glared through the corner of his eye at the official, and then to the man he was holding. Without much warning, he let go of him so he landed flat on his ass. "Fine... I got what I want," he said and began to walk out of the casino. Not caring for the crowd, he all but shoved his way through. Asura quickly got out of his way just in time, glancing at the mess he had made and the man who he had been threatening.

Curious, Asura watched as the man walked away. He seemed happy with himself and with his winnings. Asura couldn't put his finger on it, but something was strange with how he handled himself as well as his own attitude. ANd a strange sense, he found the guy to be pretty bad ass. Was he a shinobi as well?

Strange enough, Asura was curious about the guy.
---
Asura had chosen not to get involved with that one, even to keep the peace it seemed. One getting involved would only cause more problems but that guy still both interested Asura as well as rub him wrong. He continued down the road, moving to the outskirts of the town till he passed one of the poster stations.

He soon was about to make his way towards the road, passing a display of signs as well as a few wanted posters. He let out a yawn as he saw a certian face with tattoos and wild hair on it. Still he was pretty tired and was about to go when...

"What the hell?!" he stopped and turned! He rushed for the poster board and looked. There it was.

A wanted poster that advertised one of the priority targets from the Hidden Cloud's Bingo Book! And it was the same man.

The same man who had made a scene at the casino just an hour ago! Grabbing the wall, Asura looked t the picture. It was the same guy, profiled on the front and on the side like a prison shot, with that same smug smile-- like he knew that a prison couldn't hold him. It was indeed the same guy, wild hair, same tattoos and the same eyes. Asura looked at the man's profile and learned who he was.

Augus of the Hidden Heavens
An S class Rogue Ninja!
Wanted Dead or Alive.

Wanted for several accounts of the following: Theft and Grand Theft, Pillaging, Defilement, Assault and Battery. The list was pretty large. One part included a lecherous pervert and a few unmentionable crimes in that area. A lot of powerful people had been crossed by this man and it seemed from how he appeared before, he was not afraid of any of it. Finally... at the bottom, was the reward for his capture.

40, 000,000 Ryo.

Asura nearly couldn't believe his eyes. The man was worth 40 million, even info leading to his arrest was 20 million. This was unbelievable... A sense of both excitement and dread fell upon Asura. On one hand he learned the location of a dangerous fugitive and knew he had to act on it. However, the fact was if this high a price was on his head and with the crimes he had against him, he must be a far formidable person. An S class ninja at that.

Asura tore the flyer off the board and realized he should take this right to the office of the Hidden Rock security, and report him. He was about to go running off at high speed...

... but then he stopped.

What was he thinking? Sure the guy was powerful, even dangerous but there was two things that occurred to Asura's mind. One, a ninja never runs away, even to inform allies of a situation. ANd two.  If he brought in this outlaw, he would have proven his ability as a ninja. He could redeem himself in his mind and honor his clan by bringing in this guy.

He knew better-- the risk was high. He could end up dead if he didn't do it right. He wanted to live sure, but still, a criminal on the loose was right under his nose. ANd if he wanted to rise as a shinobi, there was no way he could just run away from this. He held the flyer in his hand as he decided things in his mind. What should he do?? Would he report him in and not bother, or aim high and attempt to bring the man in with his own strength and power.

The stoic and thoughtful look might have been an indication of the right path-- but it wasn't. He couldn't turn away from any chance, and furthermore he couldn't stand and pass up this golden opportunity. To gain respect by taking down a true criminal and help out for the sake of his village.

It was a bad idea... but he was going to capture the man.
---

Sprinting about the village, Asura kept an eye out for this wanted guy. He had reviewed over the list. While he was a ninja, he noticed the crimes he had committed. A lot of them were petty offenses in Asura's mind. Murder or rather killings of innocents were not on the list. It stood to reason he had his own reasons or so. Still, it was a confusing topic. If he was wanted, why was he S class? It offered little detail. But one thing did stand out. He didn't bother to hide himself in the village up till now. It was very possible he was a lot more powerful than what was stated if he had the balls to just walk into a village and not worry about being caught.

He soon searched the village, looking for any sign of the man but couldn't find him. Stopping his high speed run, he came to stop near the edge of the village. "Meh... no sign of him. Maybe he moved on out of the village," Asura said to himself as he looked around.

Then he heard some sounds nearby. He was positioned near the far bath house of the village. The village got a lot of geothermal power since they were in close proximity to various volcanic areas. Naturally, they had piped some over for power but it also made Iwa famous for its hot springs. There was some voices and so Asura thought he woudl check it out. He had not looked over that part of the village yet.

It was an area hidden by both rocks and trees as steam vented from the natural boundaries. He had no intention to peek but he wanted to be sure nothing was amiss... but as luck would have it, he found someone there.

The white haired man was indeed there as Asura approached quietly. He was knelt down, his hands on his knees as he sat there and watched from a shady outcropping. The man had a pleased grin on his face as he observed through the steam of the hotsprings... hearing the laughter and talk of young ladies in the bath.

He was so focused he didn't even acknowlege Asura behind him, glaring at the man's back as he peeked at the ladies. "How the hell did this guy end up an S class rogue ninja? There must be a mistake here?" Asura thought. Still seeing as how he was rudely looking at the women in the baths, he did feel a sense of dedication to stop him-- and perhaps give him a taste of his own medicine.

Asura quickly made a few hand signs. "Katon... Fire Palm Jutsu," He then thrust a palm in his direction, causing flames to gush out and nail the man right in the back of his pants, catching them on fire.

"WHAAAH!!!" the man yelled. The blast of fire propelled him forward as he landed for the hot sprints below. He fell with a splash, putting out the fires-- but not before the hot spring grew quiet with the ladies noticing him.

"AAAAAHHH!!!" they shrieked running and sreaching for towels-- or objects to throw at the pervert.

The man began to protest but stopped as he was hit by a woman's bucket. Asura watching from the shadow of the trees laughed a bit and then fled, knowing that the man would no doubt come looking afterward once he was not under assault.

---

Asura chose to leave the premise for a moment till things calmed down. He kept a genuine idea of his target's location but now he had to wait and see what would happen. Now he was just walking along the mountain pass roads. he had walked these trails a hundred times, often exploring the mountain side and sating his wanderlust urges by finding things he had not seen before in his own backyard. He was otherwise at ease, relaxing...
... till there was a sudden rush of air coming for him. Something was falling!

Asura quickly rolled out of the way and just in time! The object slammed into the stone he was standing and erupted from the impact-- casting dust in all directions. Alarmed, Asura spun out of his roll and drew his blade Shinkou. Asura watched as the dust cloud began to settle and he saw a figure stand up.

Coming out of the smoke it was none other than the same guy Asura had been chasing. He knew this would happen.... after smoking his butt , he would naturally follow whoever it was that did that prank. The man emerged from the smoke, brushing off some dirt from his shoulder. "I got a bone to pick with you, brat?" the man growled.

"Oh?" Asura said, feinting innocence as he still held his blade ready. "What about? I am afraid I don't know what you are talking about. "

Augus, the wandering swords man had finished his 'sight seeing' as he called it and had left for the forest path to travel along the coast of the land of lightning. Night time had fallen and the sky was dark and overcast. Unbothered by a dark lightless road or any troubles, Augus marched on, armed with his sword behind him and a small sack of belongings he had.

The man appeared very care free and gazed at the path with a confident smirk. He had come to explore this region as he always admired the culture of the Land of Lightning. He found its people rich in ambition and desires. Hence his drawn to the more vicarious parts of the settlements. He had a blast gambling, relaxing at the bathhouse and of course couldn't resist to peek at the women. He would of enjoyed to spend the evening with a few of them begging for his skilled touch... but alas, he knew he couldn't stay in one place too long. He was a wanted man after all, but odd thing was, he had no shame about it. He had his reasons after all.

Either way, he was annoyed that anyone interrupted his time sating his curiosities. Especially this young Genin.

"Lighting my pants on fire and ruining my 'sight seeing'," the man Augus replied, sneering at Asura. "I think you owe me an apology, boy. You woudln't want me to reduce you to a crying baby, would you?" he threatened as he punched a fist into his palm.

Asura took notice to the man's sword. He never reached for it , which put Asura into good spirits. Still it looked formidable.

A furious look crossed Asura's face as he glared at the back of the man. "You're Augus right?" he asked. "I have something to discuss with you."

Augus's head rose a bit at his name. He took interest in the events going on. "Oh, you know who I am, hm? Guess I am a pretty big celebrity. " He jested with a chuckle, and stretched out his arms. All the while he never turned to look at Asura. "So, what is it you wanted to discuss? Came for an autograph to show your friends?"

And Asura thought he was cocky. Still he pulled out the wanted flyer and flipped it open. "Only the fact that you are a wanted rogue ninja. Seems the reward for you is pretty high, but you already knew this. You may call me foolish, but you were no different strolling around carelessly." Asura said firmly.

Augus had a general idea what this was leading up to long before he got the flyer out in the open. Finally, he turned around to face Asura and got a good look at him. He could see Asura, a youth no older than 16 if he had to guess the earliest age. He could see the cold scowl on his face, and the poster in his hand. Also the hint of a short katana behind him.

"Rogue Ninja? Er... sorry, fraid I have no recollection of that," he said in an overly played tone of voice. He then scratched his head with a finger. "My memory is not what it used to be. I am an older man after all...."

Asura grumbled at Augus' attempt. Was he trying to make a fool out of him? Still he watched him carefully and didn't give him an inch. "This here says you clearly, and what you have done... bit of a reckless bastard, aren't we?" Asura replied.

Still, Augus looked and then seemed perplexed all the same. "Er, you mind coming a little closer with that flyer? I fear my eyes are not as good as they used to be..."

Sure they aren't... Enjin thought as he kept his guard up. He didn't honor the request. "Just drop it, old man. You're coming with me. "

At that moment, Augus dropped the old man act and let out a bellowing chuckle. It was like santa's laughed but creepier. Asura's blood began to pump with awareness and anxiety, making him tightens his stance to the ground. After he had his little laughing fit, he smiled at the youth ninja. "Now THAT is funny. You will take me by force huh? Tell me, you here to 'have me face justice' or crap like that?" he said with amusement.

"Nope. I just wanna drag you back and prove I am a worthy shinobi! You're crimes are your own business," Asura replied curtly.

What Asura said made Augus looked at him with wider eyes and grinned. "Oh, is that so... Least you are honest about it. Good..." he said, his appearance becoming more sinister. "Had you told me you were here to serve the law and 'in the name of justice' I would of killed you on sight."

The tone of the man was now going dangerous uneasy with Asura. He still held the paper as he never left the man's gaze. "Yeah well... cause or not, you are not getting awa--"

Snag! Something snagged the paper out of his hand! Alarmed, and in a blur of motion, he turned to find it was Augus-- suddenly standing behind him! In the blink of an eye, he had moved from one spot to another. He turned and looked to see he was now completely gone, before snapping back to see the man crumble the wanted poster of himself in his hands. Finally, all while glaring down at Asura, he scattered his hands and the paper suddenly caught fire. It vanished in the blaze, reduced to bits of smoke, ash and embers. "What was that about me not getting away?" he said with a wicked grin.
Asura took a step back, realizing he was in deep trouble.

"Now ... what to do with you? " Augus said, stroking his chin and beard. "I think I will play with you a bit. Do make this entertaining."

He had two choices: Attempt to fight him and throw him off balance, or run. Run fast, run hard, and try to out maneuver him.

He chose fight! He quickly drew his short katana and got ready. "Maybe it was foolish to face you, but I don't back down!" he shouted and he lunged to attack with his borrowed blade! He aimed to swipe at the man's head, trying to catch him. However, Augus was not only quick but aware of his opponent's moves.
And this time, Augus didn't move as a blur. He merely side-stepped or tilted out of the way of the assaults. Asura swiped for the head but he tilted and moved away. Once he touched ground, he turned on his heels and went to slash at his exposed chest. Once more, Augus stepped out of range of the swipe and remained a few inches away from his blade attacks.

Now frustrated, Asura moved to attack with both blade, along with his free arm and feet. He had trained in basic taijutsu and kenjutsu methods, so he had hoped mixing them up and attacking him through its methods would allow him to throw off his enemy and land a blow! Unfortunately, Augus was not an S class Rogue Ninja for no reason.

After three swipes of his sword, Asura reached to deliver a punch right for his jaw. This time Augus didn't dodge and merely reached out a hand. Slap! He caught the punch as it landed squarely in his large hand! WIth that, he gripped it, keeping Asura in and unable to back up or get distance. Once again, Asura could see his wicked grin appear.

There was a sudden sound like thunder, followed by the undeniable force of a punch into Asura's body. He was sent flying backwards and towards the ground. He went skidding and fell to his knees. The blow felt as if someone had fired a rock salt shot into his body. It stung like a bitch as he pushed himself up and saw AUgus, still grinning at him.

"KATON! Mythical Flame Feathers!" he shouted and spun, scattering embers which grew into flames all around towards Augus. The use of his Katon style was the best weapon he had, however, he could only imagine what effect it would have on Augus. And unforunately, he took the hit but only suffered a light burn to his body. It was like he was made of stone!

Asura lunged once more and attempted to strike with his sword. While Augus did indeed dodge to his left-- Asura did not stop! Instead it was a feint and he quickly dashed into the woods! He fled, leaving Augus behind him.

This surprised the rogue ninja as he saw him vanish into the woods. However, Augus grinned and clicked his tongue in interest. "Oh, so now you choose to flee. Sorry, but you aren't getting away that easily!" he said and sprinted off after him as well!

Using his chakra to enhance his speed, he flew through the trees and jumped from branch to branch. Still, he knew running would get him nowhere fast. This person was far faster. In this case Asura knew the truth. He had bitten off more than he could chew and now he was going to pay the price... or was he? He had one method he had prepared for. He was cocky but not stupid. He knew his enemy was a highly skilled ninja and one with a sense of arrogance to him.

He couldn't hear his pursuer but he knew better to not even stop to check. His opponent could appear at any moment. Soon he found an open grove in the trees and stopped there. With his sword still drawn he looked around, hoping to find any sign of movement. It was quiet for a moment, till there was a rustling in the bushes. Finding a stone near his feet, he picked it up and swung it at it-- however the only thing to emerge was a small hare that had been grazing.

A sigh escaped Asura, realizing it was not the target till...

"DId you really think you could escape?" a voice growled.

Asura turned to find the same guy now behind him. Augus cracked his knuckles as he glared down. "Now... time to die..." he said like a dramatic villain.

However, Asura was not about to go down that easily. Drawing a shuriken, he swung it back and actually threw it for him. A surprise move and one he had hoped to catch him off guard. Augus merely tilted his head as it went flying past his shoulder and for the nearby tree. A laugh erupted from Augus and his chest shook with hilarity. "Are you kidding me? What a desperate punk of a shinobi-- a swordsman never discards his weapon and your threw yours away--"

But that was not the real goal. It was Asura's time to smirk, as he had set the stage perfectly and now it was time for the climax.

SHRIT! The sound of a rope's snap sounded as Asura's sword had severed a rope he had tied up till this point. There was a sudden rumble from nearby as movement could be seen above-- a rockslide from the mountain side. Asura had laid a trap, and Augus was right in the middle of it. For the first time till now, AUgus showed a look of surprise to see it as the two ends came down on him and struck!

WHAM!!

The thunderous sound of the hitting was loud and Asura jumped away to get away from the shock area. He had been clear but still better to be safe than sorry. He looked through the small bit of dust to see if his trap had worked. He held a breath, hoping he had done damage to him.

But once the dust settled, he could see it. The pile of rocks that he had fallen upon Augus. His trap had worked and went off without a hitch-- until they began to move. Asura was about to breathe easy till he saw the big one move and Augus was there, holding it up slowly. He heaved it with one hand over his head, supporting it as if it was nothing. All the while with a calm expression on his face. Asura realized his trap failed. Now he really was screwed!

He tossed the rock away behind him, which landed with a loud crash and impacted the ground. Augus grinned. "Heh... clever brat, but I been around long enough to smell a trap a mile away. ANd this one was just child's play." he said. THen, vanished in a blur.

Asura's line of vision was met by his body as he now was high over him. "Got you!" he growled and slammed his very head down against him! WHAM! Asura was struck by the guy's own forehead as if it was a rock and fell to the ground, the force of it painful and disorienting.

He quickly began to get up and defend himself, however-- something heavy fell on him! Almost crushing as it knocked the air out of Asura. Now as if in a wrestling match, Augus had pinned Asura beneath him. He merely had flopped right down on top of him, his position more lazy but his huge size and weight of muscle made it feel like he was under a piece of metal. Asura immediately tried to push him off but he would not budge.

As Augus pretty much had Asura under him, he laid on his side and rested an arm, as if he was reclining somewhere. "So... how do you intend to get out of this?" he said now in a mocking tone.

"Grrrr!" Asura growled, now pushing with all his might. "Sh-Shut up, old man!!" he growled. However, it only earned a laugh from Augus. It was clear the rogue ninja was not going anywhere as he ascerted a set weight on the younger man.

Augus didn't even assert further pressure. Nor even offer any kind of offense against Asura as he was now completely immobile below him. Stuck in the grove of trees, no one could see them for miles and there was no one around likely to hear a cry for help. Asura never did raise his voice for help. ALl the while, Augus was curious about the guy. He was brave if a bit foolish, and driven by his own desires and not some notion of 'justice and law' that Augus had hated. It was true. Had Asura said he was with the law or something; Augus would have killed him in the most cruel and bloody of fashions.

For Asura, this situation was humiliating so he was glad no one was around to see. He knew this could happen and he did it anyway. He went alone to try and capture a rogue ninja for its reward and the respect that came with it. Now he was pinned under the guy who thought it was all a big game to him. He should be grateful that he was not dead, but death might have been better for him than this kind of embarrassment. He was the man's fucking lounge cushion! He pushed and pushed, trying to get some sort of leverage but Augus' body was so heavy and massive, he was having trouble doing so. "Damnit...!" he swore, trying to squeeze out but it was no use.

Augus resisted the urge to laugh. THe man's attempts tickled him a bit but he enjoyed seeing some people squirm. It was amusing and hinted perhaps a slight sadistic nature in the man. "You know," Augus said with amusement. "I might just let you go if you admit you can't win... and of course get on your hands and knees and beg for forgiveness," he said with a smirk.

"I rather be eaten alive by beetles," Asura grumbled as he continued to shove.

"Careful what you wish for, punk. I can arrange that. Death is but the least of an enemy's concern when I am involved," Augus said with glee. It would paint a good picture in anyone's mind what the rogue ninja did to his victims. Still, Augus had to admit, the kid was persistent. Though older than most shinobi he had seen, this one had untapped potential. He could only guess as to why he was much older and still had rookie training. It was indeed almost sad to him.

Asura constantly kept struggling. From pushing him off to even sliding out, the man's position made it impossible for him to try and break free. Even worse his arm was bound so he couldn't weave any signs. He was trapped. He used this anger, this frustration to motivate him and push harder. However, Augus was far superior in strength and hold.

Augus let out a yawn as laid on top of Asura, the late hour being frustrating for him. "Well... it has been a long day. I think I will take a nap," he said calmly, even now more lax as he laid there with a hand resting his head.

"DON'T YOU FUCKING DARE FALL ASLEEP ON ME, YA OLD FART!!" Asura roared, furious. "DAMN YOU!!"

Regardless, Augus lay out and rested. He had no intention to go anywhere so he made himself comfortable and waited.

Hours past into the night as it became all the more ridicules that this guy was not moving. Regardless, he kept pushing and shoving, trying to lift the bastard off of him. He could only just hope no one spotted him like this. He would be joked at for life. Augus had indeed gone to sleep, snoring a bit as he laid there. At first he moved briefly, but only till he was repositioned. Asura tried to move at that very moment but no luck. THe guy was just too heavy! HIs muscles ached from the very attempt and despite his anger and frustration; it was not the fuel he needed to overcome this guy.

It was about late evening that Asura was still trying to get the old man off of him. Physical strength was useless, so now he had to apply his own chakra. He focused his chakra where it could, much harder now that he couldn't make a hand sign to channel it. Regardless, he drew it to his body and pushed hard. He moved. It wasn't alot but he did get him to move, but only an inch or so. Despite how much chakra he put into it alone, it still was not enough. "OH come on!! Move you fatass!" he grumbled.

However, Augus just grinned at the string of creative names the kid was giving him. "Hmm... I am not fat. I am big boned," he joked in return, his expression still that as if he was asleep.

"DAMN IT YOU BEEN AWAKE THIS WHOLE TIME!! You suck!" Asura shouted, now just thrashing.

Finally, having exhausted all his chakra and his physical strength, he didn't move. He huffed and puffed, having been at it for hours and still he was the man's mattress. The shame just weighed on Asura's mind. "Damnit.... "

"THere's no shame to admit defeat kid. If I wanted, I would of made you my bitch," he said.

Repulse and anger raged in Asura, hearing that detail. "Ya sick bastard! I don't swing that way!!" he replied, the thought teetering on his mind and it just wanted him to get out fast.

Augus however just laughed in amusement. "Naw, relax. Not my type anyway... " he said, messing with Asura. Still jokes aside, he had his fill. "Admit defeat... You are clearly outmatched. You put up a good fight, I'll give you that-- for your level of experience anyway. Come on, this is only making you look more pathetic."

A twitch formed in Asura's brow as he wanted to tell the old man to go fuck himself... but alas, he was right. It was the worst judgment call that Asura had ever made. He tried to best a criminal with considerable skill and he could of easily have died. He paused and bit his tongue for a moment. "Damnit..." he groaned. Augus chuckled, knowing it was coming. "Fine... you win. I surrender..."

"And you will get on your hands and knees and beg." Augus added.

"Fuck you..."  Asura replied, still holding on to what pride he had left.

Augus chuckled, sticking a finger in his ear to clean it before attemting to wipe off the residue on Asura's clothes. "Oh? Well then, I'll just go back to sleep. See you in a few--"

"DON'T YOU DARE! ALRIGHT ALRIGHT! I'll FUCKING DO IT!" he shouted, disguised and irritated by the man.

Resisting the urge to laugh, Augus finally hauled himself up and stood up. Asura rolled out of the way quickly and got to his feet. However, Augus was not kidding. He wanted Asura to beg for his life and for forgiveness. Augus merely gestured him 'down' like a dog at his feet. Asura didn't want to. He would of rather taken his sword and cut off his arm... but it seemed he was not going to get out of it. He deserved it after the foolish things he did that night.

Swallowing his pride, he fell to his knees and soon placed his hands on the ground. If Augus had wanted, he could have easily beheaded him like that. But he didn't and just enjoyed as the youth humiliated himself before him. "And what do you say? I want to hear you beg for your life...." he replied.

A growl escaped Asura. "I was... foolish to think I stood a chance against you. I let my ambitions cloud my judgment. Please forgive me..." he said, and still feeling each word cut at him like a knife.

Augus had hoped for more pleading but..."Meh... good enough I suppose," he said and let out a chuckle. "You got guts kid. Had you just been some punk I would of just offed you a long time ago. "

"Kind of wish you did," Asura replied, still wounded.

"OH? Want me to change my mind?" Augus replied.

Asura quickly jumped up and raised his hands. "Ugh wait ! No i didn't ---"

"BAHAHAHAHA!!" Augus bellowed with that strong laugh, his hands on his hips and his head hung back from the hilarity he was feeling. "Relax. You suffered enough I say... but level with me, what the hell were you thinking? You clearly have talent as a shinobi... but why did you pick a fight with me. You know who I am and what I am capable of. Though I should tell you... that wanted poster, has more fiction than truth.." he asked.


This part was particularly hard to explain to the stranger, even more troublesome that he was a rogue ninja. Augus could sense his hesitation, and would tease him further. "You know, considering I did just spare your life... you shouldn't feel any reason to hold out from me."

"you're a rogue ninja. Why should I tell you the sensitive issues of my village?" Asura shot back, his voice firm a bit in his resolve.

It was a good point. If this rogue ninja had come to start trouble in the Land of Earth, the sensitive issues with the village would give enemies the edge. He could be part of the Akatsuki. However, Augus merely scratched his chin in thought. "Hah! I couldn't care less about the affairs of your country. I just came to see the sights, enjoy the pleasures of this land and its women," he said with no shame in his answers. "What ? You think I am a spy or something? No spy would wander into enemy territory alone. Besides, I am just a free spirit. That is my only real crime, you know what I mean."

He had a good point there at that. Realizing he didn't really have a choice nor would it matter, Asura decided to tell him. "I recently past my Genin exam but I failed at an important aspect of it. I passed all the same but I felt I didn't deserve it. So I thought if I captured a criminal and did something outstanding, I would be acknowleged. I just wanted to become stronger and to prove it.." he explained as best he could.

Augus had a rather thoughtful expression on his face as he listened. It made sense to him now that someone like Asura had not demonstrated any significant combat skill, because no one was teaching him properly. It made Augus sick that such a thing would prevent anyone from going forward and being stronger. HAD Augus come to start trouble in the land of lightning, he would fix that. He was a man who loved the thrill of battle and the desire for power. This young man was denied it cause of instability in the village.

"I see... that is frustrating. " Augus said calmly, though in the back of his mind he wanted to mow down the forest at the thought of it. What a pathetic display of a nation's military development.

Asura sighed. "Anyway... that and I wanted to get some money to learn more powerful jutsu via the scrolls they sell, but they are too much money. When I saw your wanted poster, I thought I could buy all the jutsu I could ever need but... It was foolish I admit." he said.

He thought money would solve his problems?? That was a poor thing to think , Augus thought as he looked to Asura. It was rare that Augus would feel sorry for someone. If they were weak, they were weak. He would stomp on bugs without hesitation. But Asura here had ambition. He had desire and drive. THat was not weak in any form. Underdeveloped perhaps, but potential all the same. And to the large guy's mind, it reminded him of himself when he was young. Driven, wanting to be stronger and pushing his limits and never backing down. He grinned at the thought.

"Was that all? Please..." Augus boasted, resisting the urge to laugh. He gripped a fist, tightening it for his own sensation to feel his own power boil within. "Money is a coward's path to power. Heh... I could of just given you the money if you asked."

Asura frowned at his boasting, and wishing he was stronger just so he could knock that smile off his face. "I am well aware of that, but I don't see any other option. Besides I just wanted to prove myself." he said, casting his gaze down in thought.

However, Augus huffed and folded his arms against his chest. "Is that so? Then I will give you another option..." Asura looked up to him, curious to what he had in mind to better his efforts in becoming a ninja. "Why don't you let ME train you."

THis was a surprise as Asura almost backed up a step, unsure what was going on really. "Huh...? What you..." he said, not sure where that came from. A criminal Rogue ninja, and one of considerable skill, training him?! "Are you kidding me?!" Asura exclaimed.

Augus smiled at the surprise on his face. "I like ya, kid. You got fire in you, so I will tell you what. If the Cloud Village can't keep up, I'll train you myself. You keep quiet about me being here, and I promise to train you with skills you can't even imagine. You won't be the same when I am done with you."

At first, Asura was apprehensive. He WAS a rogue ninja, and conspiring with one was a big thing. HOwever... a part of him understood how just cause he was a rogue ninja, he wasn't too bad of a person. He did spare him at least. And again... just hours ago he considered going rogue, just so he could live the free life he dreamed.

"Why should I believe you? You are a rogue ninja after all," he still asked. "I can keep a secret sure but why should I believe you can keep your word. "

"Bah! Fool, open your mind," Asura said with a boastful laugh. "I admit I done some things... but what is a crime can be a necessity. After all, you don't strike me as someone who plays by the rules either. I think you and I have more in common than you care to admit... but I will see to it you will in time."

The insisting nature of this man was a bit hard to deny, as Asura could already admire the sheer strength he possessed in character and in ability.

"If you want to see just how skilled I am, let me show you what I would of used to kill you," he said iwth a grin and turned to the row of trees nearby. Augus had a good idea how to 'ignite' the spark of interest in Asura and chose his jutsu well. He calmly weaved hand signs before him, stopping at Tiger and inhaled. "Scorch Release-- Solar Wind Jutsu!!" he shouted and exhaled, releasing a blast of bright red light. THe light was like a fire as it made contact with the trees, and followed by a blazing flash!

Asura braced himself against the light as he soon waited for it to subside. The heat from the blast alone felt intense as he soon saw the results before him. In the path that AUgus had faced, he had reduced all the trees in a 50 meter range to nothing but cinders! The place was completely dry of moisture and gone. It was an impressive display.

Augus turned around and grinned. "Any doubts now? And that was one of my weakest abilities. I have spent years to master many excellent jutsu. So... what do you say?" he offered.

Asura was impressed, but he still wanted to be sure... "Before I answer you , just tell me... just what did you do to become a rogue ninja. I think I have that right before I agree to train with you," he asked.

Augus knew that he already had the young shinobi interested. Still, he would give him an answer. "I won't go into details, but let's just say it was a very big difference of opinion. But if you are worried about me being some deranged serial killer, don't be. I don't slice throats of villagers or whatever. Not my style." he said with a prideful tone. He was not as bad as the posters made him out to be.

While Asura was sure the true story and details would only ever be written in his country's bingo book, he could only hope that he would not get involved with his problems. Asura gave a long breath and thought it over... till he realized this was exactly what he was looking for. He now was before someone capable and willing to train him. Whether or not he had an end goal for training him, he was not sure... but he had had it waiting and waiting for the cloud village to grant his desires. He was sick of being tied down and forced to obey their rules that prevented him from becoming a realized ninja.

Augus was a rogue ninja, and lived a free life. So did Asura wanted to be...

"Alright, I'll take you up on your offer. Wherever you want to lead, I will decide if I follow you or not" He said with a smirk of his own.

Augus grinned once more. He was glad to hear the young man take him up on his offer.  "Glad to hear it, kid. What's your name?" he asked.

"Asura. Asura Jiin," he replied. As they talked, Asura walked over to the tree he had thrown his sword earlier. He found it through the brush and pulled it free from the bark it had been stuck into.

Standing there in the dark, Augus nodded in approval. "Alright Asura... consider yourself my pupil. However, don't think I will go easy on you. I'm gonna work you to the bone till you will hurt more places than you thought you had." He said with a wicked grin, as if trying to scare him.

Asura however, just smirked at him. "Riiight... I don't scare easy, Augus. I look forward to it," he said, a hint of a challenge in his tone.

Just then, Asura remembered something important. "Wait I do have a master! Master Roku! With all do respect I am very loyal to him!" he admitted, gaining AUgus' attention. "I mean what if he--"

"BAH!" AUgus bellowed, finding it funny. "Nothing stopping you for keeping you from him. But trust me, I got some tricks your hidden rock instructor probably doesn't know. But don't worry. No one asking you to pick and choose. Not now anyway,"

Once more, Augus released a loud laugh, not caring if anyone beyond the woods heard from its volume. Walking over to Asura, he gave him a rather friendly but somewhat forceful slap on the back. Asura nearly fell over but he caught himself and Augus grabbed him by the shoulder. "Kid... you are all right in my book. I think we will get along fine. " He said.

And so, Asura and Augus would start training together. Though he was being taught by a rogue ninja, Asura didn't care in the least. He was a capable ninja, super strong, and probably more impressive was that he lived a free lifestyle. He went where he wanted and nothing stopped him. Not the rules, not the law... he followed his own desires. Though how the training would proceed... Asura would have to just wait and see for himself.

Either way, it was going to be an interesting adventure working with the crazy, somewhat pervy, rogue ninja.
