The Western Airspace is the space in the sky that is above the Shinobi Continent, this is where characters travel through means of flight, may it be planes or something else. Keep in mind that there are numerous birds species in the airspace in which could interrupt your travel had you not be careful. There are also winged beasts that can be hidden amongst the clouds to hunt down those unaware of them, though the dangerous part isn't that, it's the constant forming of several tornadoes in which can be formed at an unpredictable rate.

In the midst of the clouds, the Goka couldn't help but explore the environment as he couldn't help but be amazed by the sight it was after a beautiful sight to behold. A sudden jolt of pain had struck him and from within it spread throughout his limbs, engulfing him in fire emitted uncontrollably, though he had attempted to contain such energy within through the Kekkei Genkai and to ensure he hadn't hurt his companion. Though his left eye closed for a brief moment - Kashi couldn't help but be unsettled in his posture the bird had made such an incredible reaction to all of those... death all over the world, yet the Goka himself is unaware of the exact reason behind the senseless death of thousands. It was... chaotic and the Phoenix can sense it. His hand clutched the chest as a flinching expression can be seen on his face. "What's wrong with you?!" he thought. As much as he'd wish he didn't have a total cooperating bond with the Phoenix resting within. Kashi appeared to be flustered at what had occurred without his control, demanding answers as he slowly... regained control. After what seemed to be returned to normal for him there was a long pause as he stared into the air without a purpose.​

"Heh... Heh...... HEH........." He chuckled, the words were monotone in that there was no meaning behind them and then he saw the giant snake below, acknowledging that Kuragari had summoned a giant snake in order to travel, though the thought of them expecting total incognito at their part. "That was pretty funny." He covered his mouth as he attempted to contain his laughter from within. But like a hose, all it could go is out in one direction; he engaged into an uncontrollable storm of laughter that had echoed throughout the clouds. "HEH HEH......HAHAHAHAHA," he couldn't contain the tears as they continued to flow out the eyes socket. He couldn't believe what had happened to him just now, was he just unstable as one expected from someone whose power is fueled by the Curse of Hatred allowing himself to succumb into the darkness at will?
"I probably should tell him to reverse the summoning on the snake and join me on Akachan... or should I just let him travel and experience the reality?" He pondered as a plastered grin can be seen as he changed his mind at the last second, and instead looked at the photo that had caught his attention for some reason. "Though... I wonder if she's a strong character. It'd be interesting to find out" he said, a smirk can be seen as he couldn't help but wonder how this mission goes. Especially with things against him, such as his so-called comrade who had been annoyed by his behavior and then this, it appears that they are close to their destination by now. Will his mission be successful in the end?​

While young Kura and his summoning were on the ground following Kashi, he realized she Ojo was going to be tired by the time they got where they needed to be which would be bad if they needed her. As such he rested a hand on her back and emptied his mind, doing a jutsu for her, allowing 4 dark matter structures to form on both sides of her body. These structures began to slowly manifest themselves into wings that would be big enough and strong enough to support her weight and size. These wings grew to a massive size giving her a wingspan almost times her body length. "Alright, nobody asked for your input on this Ojo, besides. This little bastard started it, i just plan on finishing it." Finally getting out his response to her regarding Kashi, his mood wasn't the best since the brat arrived; He wasn't even sure if he could bare it any longer than he already had but he was going to try. Though he wouldn't mind returning with the boy having a broken arm or two, the though of that brought a smile to his face.

After some time, the wings fully manifested on Ojo and allowed them to actually start taking flight, using her own chakra to manipulate them while Kuragari finally stood on the middle head with his arms folded, staring straight ahead before speaking out to Kashi. "Hey.. brat. You know more about this area than I do, how far is our destination from here?" As he waited for his answer, a drop of sweat started to drop from his forhead as he made the mistake of looking down and seeing just how high above the ground he actually was; Upon that realization, he kept a calm demeanor but on the inside he was losing his mind altogether. Ōjo on the otherr hand developed a teasing smile as she leaned he middle down a bit pretending as if she was actually trying to see what was going on below them while the other 2 glanced at Kuragari with a snicker. "Don't worry child, I won't let you fall. I promise, Hmhm."

It wasn't a simple journey for sure as Kashi could even perceive the presence of the 'aerial beasts' hidden within the clouds - though he could perceive it through the power of the Goka to see the heat signature allowing himself to avoid the clouds in a certain movement. The particular halo can be seen on the left - the fading tomoe can be also perceived on the right, had the Shinobi paid attention. Though it was fading to a point it was practically invisible for anyone to see. It might be that he had prioritized the chakra usage into the Kashogan in which in turn had resulted in the other being weakened. "Hmm.." A sudden jolt of chakra had reached his head as the eyes darted left at Kuragari, causing an ominous smile on his face as he found it amusing that the Nubatama had found a way to catch up to him. "About a couple of a minute. Akachan's pretty good when it comes to directions, I think it's cause he had been everywhere in the past it's like he had a memory of an elderly elephant," he said, without skipping a beat in his words it appeared that he had changed his attitude just now; in that he had become more open. Could it be that he had... gained a little respect from the Goka?

As it appeared that they're about to be close to their destination a plastered grin on the face had suggested he had something else in mind other than flying right in. "Make sure to conceal your chakra signature and disguise your appearance into something different..." He whispered as he held up the single hand sign "Ram", whilst performing a combination of Transformation Technique and Shadow Clone Technique in which resulted in 4 identical copies of himself on their own Akachan with their own disguise, their chakra remained concealed. Without a second to waste the clones had departed in different directions other with the exception of the original. Their goal? Find Kiseki Isogi in this place.
"...." he stared at the Nubatama, expecting that he had done the same to his appearance in order to infiltrate into the city where Kiseki Isogi is known to be in, according to the reports they had on her. "Ready to go, Kuragari?" he said, as he jumped onto the sand allowing his sandals to settle as a scent of the river flowed through him for a moment he couldn't help but feel relaxed. Though it isn't the time to fool around as it is their mission to retrieve Kiseki Isogi and return her home the rosy pink eyes illuminated - allowing the fading pattern of his respective kekkei Genkai to appear in and out for a moment. It was to scan for any trace of population and join them as if they were but a visitor. At the same time, his alluring pink hair can be seen brushing against the wind allowing pieces of sand to hit his skin as he placed his hand against the waist. It appeared by now that he had disguised his appearance, whilst removing any notable feature on him that could be used to discover his identity in the future. "If either one of us had been discovered. Make sure you find a way to escape or exterminate yourself in order to avoid any interrogation." he paused, it was no secret that he had prepared a contingency, had he been discovered.

"Alright. Let's go find her" He said, as they continued to advance toward the beach into the sector where it appeared to be much different from what it is compared to Hidden Petal Village in appearance. Still, it appeared to be rather... quiet for a sector as there aren't many people as they'd expected, why is that? It was... much dead at a glance, but for those who had paid attention would see some blood in distance causing Kashi to smile, rather ominously. Without wasting much time the artificial shinobi had arrived - maintaining the disguise as he found the hospital where Kiseki is at, causing him to observe the entire buildings and through the windows in that he had discovered a particular pink aura out of the entire population in the hospital. It wasn't difficult as he can see color through the Sharingan and he had some familiarity with an isogi or two that he is capable of finding another. "Found her." He thought as he walked into the entrance allowing for... a particular couple to see him.

Even though Kuragari was never one to actually play as a team, he was glad he met Kechi and got assigned to the mission, this was a chance for him to actually learns what it means to be a part of something instead of always doing things alone. Eventually, he got a response from the kid who actually spoke to him normally instead of like someone who just wanted to start a fight, was the kid just testing him to see how things were going to go? He didn't really know the answer to that but there was something about the kid that just became different in the duration of only half their journey. "Tch, an elephant huh? You sure have a way of explaining things kid." For a moment, Kuragari actually slightly laughed at his comment about what he assumed to be the leaf, and giving it a name was something strange but he figured there had to be a reason. Though, Kashi quickly went into team leader mode, and even though Kuragari hated taking orders from people, this was his first time around this area so. On top of that, maybe the Kashi wasn't so bad after all so he'd see what he had in mind and what the reason for changing their appearance was for.

Kuragari followed Kashi's lead and performed the same hand sign "Ram", performing only the transformation jutsu to color his eyes and hair both pink to match the color of the man who brought him here in the first place. Seeing the kid perform a mix between both shadow clone jutsu and a transformation jutsu WITH a summoning was indeed impressive; as such this caused Kuragari to give another smile towards the kid as a way of accepting him as something more than just a random brat with a strange attitude. "Alright Ojo, you can start becoming smaller now, and yea kid... Let's go." After that statement, Kuragari concealed both the chakra of himself and Ojo; Now with that being out of the way, Ojo started gradually becoming smaller at a rapid pace until Kuragari was safely on the ground beside Kashi. The wings made from their combined jutsu was now gone, and Ojo had slithered her way onto the back of Kuragari's neck while being hidden by his hair. "When you need me back out there little one, just say the words." Staring straight ahead as he followed the lead of his comrade as he replied to Ojo. "Right..."

Kuragari had definitely took the full brunt of the electrical shock by the child he was holding, though during those moments; It was almost as if his body was calling out for help which caused an unusual amount of dark matter to be called to his body. At first glance, the appearance looked as if the Nubatama teen was leaking a dark purple slime from his body. Though as he yelled, a second tone could be heard that sounded more... demonic and sinister in tone along with him. His eyes had flashed between his Nisshokugan and the eyes he used for his disguise before falling to his knees breathing heavily. His body had seemed to be slightly burned due to the encounter which left him to remove his shirt to keep it from rubbing against the bruises and annoying them. "Im not getting on that damn thing Kid... i have my own way to get around outside of Ojo.. I just... didn't want to use it until after the mission. Alright Ojo, you can return back to Serpent Mountain." Within this very moment, a group of dark matter particles formed right below Kuragari like a solid cloud which lifted him into the air, carrying him side by side with Kashi and Kiseki, but a little elevated above them as he held the girls IV drops so they still ran down into her. All while the giant serpent finally took the time to return home after speaking to him one last time. "See you again soon little Kura.. Take care of yourself."

However, after he fully caught his breath; the slime emerged from Kuragari's body as a dark purple entity with silver piercing eyes and sharp teeth, in this moment Kuragari's chakra spiked drastically but the intent carried by the chakra was in fact coming from this "thing" instead of Kuragari himself. This was the 3rd time Kuragari experienced this; However, the difference was he was actually aware this time and his reaction was genuine as this was the first time he himself actually seen what this thing was. His eyes opened as he stared at it in a slightly frightened manner, but due to this creatures intent coming from Kuragari, he was as frightened as one would think he should have been. "W- what the hell are you?" The creature looks over the 3 of the kids. "Who am I? I'm your alter ego you little idiot. The next time you call me when that's happening and use me as a barrier, I won't hesitate to take over you completely. As for you.." Referring to Kiseki. "The next time you do that, I WILL eat you.." The statements were short and the being disappeared just as quickly as it returned, allowing the intent to suddenly vanish along with the Chakra of Kuragari lowering itself as the dark matter being vanished. Ultimately, this left Kuragari shocked as he slowly looked towards Kashi with a confused expression.

As soon as she felt the ground, or what she’d thought to be the ground, beneath her she was approached by someone else. Through hazy eyes she watched him crouch next to her and felt very subtly the weight that he put upon her back. He scooped her up effortlessly and it was then that her senses became a little more alert, becoming aware of the situation. The fog began to clear from her mind. She put her hands against the boy’s chest and pushed, but she hadn’t expected her body to betray her. Kiseki had no strength, and really her attempts at freeing herself from him could barely even pass as a nudge. The tubes in her arm started to feel tight, like they were being pulled on, and she’d been in the hospital enough to instinctively grasp ahold of it where it connected to her arm to keep it from being pulled out. She’d started to mumble something, looking up at the boy that was holding her, but found herself silent. Her mouth remained open as if she was about to speak, but her attention had quickly focused on the symbol upon his forehead.

And then the heat washed over her. Her eyes opened the rest of the way and she felt like she was burning up. She’d already been sweating slightly but now it was definitely visible across her skin, and yet the hotter it got for her in his arms- the more energy she felt she had. Her squirming got less and less weak and she realized after a moment- that it wasn’t hurting her at all. How could someone hold her so delicately with the intent to harm? No, she felt… at least a little bit better. The realization both confused her, and made her somewhat relieved. But w-

Her attention snapped toward the other boy, who by now was shirtless and looked as if he’d just been struck by something. She’d had no idea that it was because of her and she wouldn’t have even thought to ask were it not for the blob of matter that formed behind him. It targeted her, saying it’d eat her if she did that again, and her response was just as confused as she felt. Her brows furrowed and she looked at the creature like it had six heads instead of one. She was going to ask and then she realized what he’d meant. When she stopped her heart, the seal must have went off, and if she had to guess she would guess that that boy had some form of physical contact with her when it did.

That wasn’t really her fault though, and she didn’t exactly feel bad about it. All she cared about was figuring out what was going on right now. She looked up at the red haired boy holding her in his arms and shimmied again to wordlessly ask to be put down. They looked the exact same age, though she knew if that was the case it meant that she was younger than him. What was she to say to them? Standing on a leaf, flying in the sky, with two boys that had just snatched her from her homeland. Her gaze just constantly flickered back and forth between the two of them and she never actually spoke up, standing there with a steady posture so she didn’t stumble and fall off.

The Goka had observed the situation - though the Phoenix within had raised from within to mark the Nubatama as a potential target. The halo on the left eye can be described to be rather illuminated drowning in its sinister light as a smile can be seen on the face. It was almost as if the Phoenix had peered through the halo just to memorize the appearance of Kuragari Nubatama. Still, the situation before him required his total attention though he could tell she had felt slightly better than before, though she had become confused at the reason behind them abducting her from her homeland. "The Isogi Clan had ordered us to retrieve you." He said it wasn't that he had been curious enough to see her reaction but that he had attempted to assure her. "And that lady. Hoseki wasn't it? She asked us to help you." he said, it was almost as if he had the desire to tell her that her mother knows about this this might assure her doubts in the boys. Though it is noted that Kashi hasn't lowered his guard and continued to keep his eyes on the condition of the Isogi through the eyes alone, ensuring that there were no unexpected occurrences in their presence.

It was impossible to ignore the fact that they had succeeded in their mission something that Kashi couldn't help but wonder if this had gone as intended or it wasn't as planned. Either way, it would be revealed to them in the reaction of their Master Kechi. Little did they know their abduction had knocked a domino over. In time they would discover what it means to create a wave in which starts countless chances and opportunities to exploit in due time. "Anyway. How're you feeling?" He said, his eyes continued to look onward in a single direction. It appeared that it had been a quiet journey, during their trip was simply a short one as the Akachan had been on a constant speed. The skies appeared to be rather clear in its sight as the duo - the trios had appeared to be above the clouds allowing them to travel over the continent in a short span of time.

The young Nubatama finally cleared his head as he was running lower on chakra than he thought, it was normally something he could use for a long time but the summoning, and reverse summoning took more out of him than he realized. For this reason, Kuragari manipulated his dark matter cloud to get a bit closer to both Kashi and Kiseki; Ultimately dispersing his cloud and landing on the leaf with the IV drops, holding them up to keep it elevated for the small girl. Staring forwards, with a straight face and a calm demeanor. "Hey Kid, you did good out there. Despite my screw up and almost getting us caught for not using them, you remained calm. I don't know much about you, but you're an impressive boy. I'm proud of you kid." The vibe he gave off was more, accepting, more mature than his previously stubborn like nature. Maybe seeing the kid in action had more of an impact of the assassin than he thought, this brought a smile across his face. "Alright, let's get this girl home. Kechi is probably waiting, and I have to get back to my little sister."

The Isogi sent them to retrieve her? Her face scrunched up at the thought. Pouted lips frowned and she found herself looking at the clouds rather than the two of them as she contemplated that statement. Kuragari made his way over to them and joined them at the same time, which would make addressing the both of them easier going forward. She was thankful for that, and it felt less rude on their part. When speaking to people, there should always be some form of eye contact being made to be more respectful and appear attentive.

Kuragari offered his compliments to Kashi and even though she heard it she still seemed like she was lost in thought. A million different things raced through her mind at that moment. If her father had sent for her, they would have mentioned him by name. It would have made it sound better on their part, especially if it was a lie. But the Isogi? Not her father, but the clan in its entirety- or whoever ran it at least. What did they want her for? And why did they send two…. Children. Kuragari was slightly older than his comrade from the looks of it, but behaviorally, it seemed like he was flipping back and forth between being a lone wolf and actually showing some respect. And the other one? He wasn’t exactly easy for her to pin down either. He definitely seemed like he had an attitude problem, or at least a mild incompetency when controlling it in either his expression or his words.

Then there was a matter of the altitude they were flying at. Kiseki took a slow, full turn in a circle and another half turn before she stopped with her to them. She judged the distance between the larger clouds surrounding them and the near like sheet of cloud beneath them as they flew. There was always dangers of flying at such high altitudes- not to mention thinner air. Glancing over her shoulder at the two of them, she turned around and sat down on the leaf. “If you want to avoid some harsh wind pockets, I’d suggest flying a little lower. These clouds around us are much bigger than they seem from here- they’re actually storm clouds. You just can’t see the rest of it cause of the altostratus. It’s like a blanket.” She glanced up for just a moment at Kashi, assuming this was originally his summon that they were riding on, and then looked back down at her arm as she started to fix the IV in her arm. Supposedly she had just decided to answer his question, though her answer was a little dry. It was a weird situation to be in, after all. And she had been avoiding letting the thought that her mother knew settle into her mind all together. “I feel okay. Still dying- but I have more energy than I did before, so that’s something. Thank you, by the way- whatever your name is.” She looked between the two of them before looking down again. “You two aren’t teammates, are you?” It wasn’t much of a question. It was more like an observation she’d already deduced, even despite what Kuragari said. Sans compliment as if it were the first time he’d ever seen him on a mission- they didn’t function well as a team at all. They were two people doing their own thing.​
