Part I arc Edit
Chunin Exams arc Edit
[[[Sen|Sen]] returns to the village with Maeko to give her the medical attention she needs]
[[[CONVERSATION|NVERSATION]]: (Tatsuo is also in the room)
"You go by "Sen" now, don't you?" - Mei. "Yes". - Sen.
"The girl, who is she?". - Mei. Sen panics. "She's my sis.." Mei slams her hand on the desk. "Samui don't play games with me. We were comrades, i know your history! To say such a thing is disrespectful to our past friendship". There is silence for a moment. "Who is she?". - Mei.
"... My daughter". - Sen.
Mei looks troubled. "He's the father, isn't he?" - Mei. Sen looks scared. She doesn't say anything but her expression says it all. "Samui, with this information i cannot allow it to go ignored. I'm the Mizukage now, i have a responsibility to this village". - Mei. Mei lets out a sigh. "Maeko will receive medical treatment effective immediately, however her talents will prove useful elsewhere". - Mei.
"The village elders have already made their decision. You haven't any other choice Samui. This is the only way, i'm sorry". Mei hands Sen a file on her desk. "This is all the information we have recovered on him. Samui, this is your mission. I believe now that you may be our only chance to put an end to all this. You will be placed in our ANBU hunter-nin division, do you understand?".
Sen opens the file. A picture of Susanoo is there. "Yes. Please call me Sen from now on".
Mei smiles. "I understand".]
Sen leans on a pillar. Her hands cover her face. "Maeko...". Tatsuo had noticed this.
Maeko and Tatsuo first meet in Kirigakure, The two walk past each other on a t-section, both turning around. They both look away from each other, Tatsuo begins to walk off. "Excuse me, the Mizukage building is over this way, right?" - Maeko. Tatsuo looks up. "uh, sure that's right" - Tatsuo. There is a moment of silence. Tatsuo walks off. He looks back, quickly turning back around after Maeko notices. Maeko smiles.
"Maeko! There you are, i had been looking all over for you!" - Sen. "Ah, Sen! Sorry, sorry!". - Maeko.
"Maeko, Tatsuo. You will be participating in the upcoming Chunin exams. From this day forward, you are a shinobi of the hidden mist". - Mei.
[Mizukage arranges for Maeko and Tatsuo to join the chunin exams, not to rank up, but for two main reasons; money and attention -> particularly attention to kekkei genkai users.]
Maeko is running extremely late, and half gets ready as she runs. "I'm soooo late!". She arrives at the agreed destination. No-one is there. She takes out a note with the corresponding address. "You're late team-mate" Tatsuo dongs Maeko on the head.
"I've never once seen that kid smile, or cry..." - Mei.
First stage is genjutsu room. Due to the hidden leaf complications (orochimaru), Kirigakure tightened their security. All of the exams would be recorded. In order to appear weak, Tatsuo places Maeko under another genjutsu. Some time later Maeko undoes the jutsu, a feat not easily achieved.
Second stage is a death match. Two marks must be brought back per person. Teams would have to work together to defeat a full team, work on their own, kill their own team-mate to proceed.
Momochi's background: Zabuza deflected, and Momochi begun to be ignored. "Our Zabuza, the shame"... She began to get strong, become independent. To the point of tomboy. "I don't need anyone's love" became her motto. At the same time, she wanted to prove her worth to everyone.
"I... I'm not good enough. The match is over." - "With Momochi forfeiting the match, i declare COOL GUY victorious". Cool guy notices. "The match has finished, you won! Just leave me alone". Momochi storms off.
---- Round 2
Tatsuo VS Maeko
Tatsuo forces Maeko to use her kekkei genkai, officially ending use of hiding. "Who are you really?" - Tatsuo. "I AM MAEKO YUKI! THE CURSED KEKKEI GENKAI OF MY CLAN FLOWS THROUGH MY VEINS" - Maeko. Tatsuo smirks.
"You won't be able to melt this ice". - Maeko. Tatsuo makes an unfamiliar handsign. His eyes turn yellow, and frightning. "W-what is he?". "LAVA RELEASE:
Maeko returns to the hospital, Tatsuo finding out her secret. Sen stands outside the room. Tatsuo exits. "You look concerned... but not for her" - Tatsuo. "..." - Sen. "I know". - Tatsuo about who Sen is. Tatsuo walks off, leaving Sen even more worried.
Amegakure arc Edit
"Tatsuo... He's merely the Mizukage's puppet" - kickass. "Puppet?" - Maeko. "He doesn't have a mind of his own. The things he says, the things he does - it's all under instuctions".
Maeko kills another ninja. "I... I killed someone". - Maeko. "I took his life away, a life i knew nothing about...". "Have you ever... Killed someone" - Maeko. Tatsuo sits down and looks ahead. "I have". - Tatsuo. Maeko looks for more answers. "I cannot tell you that. Over my life time i have ended the life of many. Some who have tried to harm me, some a target of my mission. This is the life of the shinobi". Maeko looks down. "Why... Why did you choose this life?" - Maeko. "Why did you?". Maeko looks down, understanding what he had meant by that.
Susanoo arc Edit
"Tatsuo...? He's the Mizukage's puppet. He will follow any order without a question. It's like he doesn't have a mind of his own". - kickass chick.
Sen is sent to track down missing nin Susanoo, who happens to be Maeko's father, and her ex lover. Stuff happens.
Back in the village, an attempt on Maeko's life is made whilst she is in the hospital. With the last of her energy, she attempts to fight them away. Unexpectedly, Tatsuo enters the room and knocks them out. Later to shake it off as one of his "orders". In reality he simply felt the need to protect her. Officals clean up the mess, and Maeko is dismissed from the hospital. Fearful, Tatsuo takes her to his apartment to stay. Safe, Maeko drifts off to sleep.
The next day, Mei Terumi pleas with the village to stop these endless killings, and that a new era has began. Maeko and Tatsuo smile to each other. Makeo does something Maekoish. Tatsuo laughs. "A smile? ... I see.
Tatsuo, and two other shinobi appear. "Tatsuo? What are you doing here?". - Sen. Susanoo puts up his guards. "A set up?"- Susanno. "I'm here to talk to you, hear me out". "You expect me to listen to a child?". "We cannot allow you to roam free with the intentions you have now. I am here to seek allience". "You know my intentions, what makes you wonder why i would form an allience". Tatsuo looks at Sen. "Tatsuo enough". "Kid stop wasting my time". "You will not attack the village hidden in the mist!". "...". "You will not attack... Your daughter". "D-daughter...?" Susanoo is shocked. He looks over to Sen, who remains silent". Susanoo grabs Sens arm and vanishes.
There is silence for a long time."A DAUGHTER!?"
"You were alone, for all of this... I am sorry... Samui".
"Maeko has no parents". "In order to protect her, i changed my identity, i became a sister... All these years i've only dreamed of mothering her, of loving her in a way a mother only can. The village took that from me! I understand your pain, i do! But right now that village is the only thing keeping her alive".
"You see, Maeko is sick".
Maeko runs off to a sink, coughs out more blood. Tatsuo had followed and was standing in front of the door. Tatsuo grabs onto Maeko's arms with a worried expression. "It's fine, it's fine. Just not feeling that well".
"Maeko... I'm sorry! Please forgive your mother".
