It was a warm, bright morning in the wildness of the woods. The birds were busy singing their tiny hearts out to one another amongst the leaves, while other creatures scampered about in the shadows of the towering trunks. Truly it was rather peaceful and also very much solitary, just as Tsukiko had desired. An entire month had passed since her arrival in this strange city, and by extension, the school. So many strange entities she had come across. Most of which were just as human as she, meaning very little. Either way, she had also come to the realization her grasp on her powers were lacking. She had never truly had a call to use her innate abilities. She knew not the extent of her capabilities or what sorts of limits she may possess. Considering amongst her clan any such display of power left them nervous and twitchy like sparrows. Her temper could only take so much of their anxious fluttering

So thus Tsukiko chose to do what any character of a story would, she intended to test herself. Of course she had no semblance of an idea as to just how do to such a thing. She only knew that she must and that she did not desire prying eyes on her attempts.

Today she wore an outfit far more suitable to physical activity. Long, flexible dancer's slacks, coupled with purple, cotton t-shirt. It was the most casual clothing she owned, and the outfit she used when she once trained in dance. Her hair was also pulled back into a braided horse tail, to prevent tangling and her neck to cool. She was also sporting a rather new age piece of technology her clan would have been quite against, an ipod filled with a verity of music. Music that could and did move her soul to the rhythmic beats. Tsukiko tucked the ear pieces in place and set it to play. Then she settled herself into the only sort of training she knew.... Dance.

With a flick of her fingers, Tsukiko created four baseball sized orb of silver light. They floated in the air easily as the first strings of music began to sing out. She could feel her soul beginning to sway to the rhythm, her body soon followed. She stepped forward with smooth, sweeping grace, twisted and ducked into a low bow. Her orbs of lights danced through the air around her as she shifted into an arch, lifting her hands high as the orbs sped up to the tempo of the music. Her body slowly twisted with her leg sweeping out and swept through the air. Then she hopped to the side, leaped into a spin as her orbs swung wide through space around her. Criss-crossing as they shifted colors in tune to the music.

Tsukiko gave up her body to the dance as she felt one of her blessed moments of joy. Shifting, swaying, and leaping to the music with her orbs.

She slipped into the beat of the music with very little effort. Swaying to the tempo as her heart beat in her chest. It wasn't easy by far to control her body and her orbs. The strain was hovering just beneath the euphoria of the music. The music began to die as she slowed to a graceful halt, she felt her pulse thumping in her veins. Her breath came out in slow, heavy breaths as she stilled her body and orbs. Waiting for the few seconds before a new song began to take form.
As she began to sway to the music, her body was much slower as she shifted into a careful rhythm. Her orbs, however, had sped in her stead. Her hand raised and one of her precious orbs shot upwards like a rocket into the tree overhead. It solidified just before impact as it rattled the branches overhead, shaking loose a rain-shower of lush green leaves.

As they floated down to the earth, her body moved and shifted. Her orbs followed the arched of her hands as they shot outwards, flattening into sharp, luminescent blades. They slammed into the leaves with little mercy, slicing them to ribbons in perfect sway with the music. She shifted, hoped, swayed, and twisted about while her light made its deadly dance.

She lost herself to the music and the task. The world around her vanishing except for the fifteen foot radius around her. She danced to the music and bared her soul in a way she would never have been comfortable in front of another. Concentration was abundant in the strain on her features as she moved. So much movement and so many tiny targets fluttering about. It was a challenge she had never faced before, and she was determined to rise to the test.

Tsukiko felt fatigue beginning to slow her movements, which only caused the rise in her stubborn nature. She refused to slow before the song finished, as close as it was. Instead she spurred herself faster, twisting away from invisible enemies and striking out to imaginary attackers. Letting her deadly light dance with wicked delight.

Sweat beaded on her skin as song found its last note. She stood panting from the effort of such a tedious and excitable challenge. Around her lay thick layer of shredded leaves as very evident show of her power's dangerous alter ego.

Tsukiko's eyes passed over the fallen, shredded, leaves in tired satisfaction. With her orbs, she had little doubt she could protect herself and fend off an attacker. Her refusal to no longer be a victim lay in evidence at her feet. She stepped outside the ring of leaves to sit upon a tree root. Taking a bottle of water from her pouch she gulped down the cool liquid. As she rested, her mind toyed with the images in her head in an effort to expand the possibilities of her powers. Truly, she wondered if there was any sort of real limitation to her abilities. Light was so... fluid and so easy to mold into her desires. It was a wondrous power to be gifted with.

Still, it was not her only power.

Tsukiko's thoughts wandered to her secondary power, that of Gravity Manipulation. It was the more hidden of her capabilities. Seeing as there was no physical change on her person. Unless someone were to pick her up or see her move something quite heavy, none would be the wiser she was even using it. She wondered just how she might test that particular power, or rather how it might combine with her light usage. As her eyes wandered over the trees, the thought hit her in an instant. She knew in her readings that Lycanthropes were fast, Aiden suggested as much. She wondered absently just how fast she might be herself, and if she might be able to match the legendary ninjas so popular in Japanese culture. She spent another thirty min resting and pondering over the possibilities.

Then once she felt sufficiently rested, Tsukiko climbed to her feet. She stretched her body out, taking careful note of any sore places. Her right shoulder was still a tad stiff from her healing bullet wound, but it shouldn't slow her down terribly much. Once limber, she set her ipod to play. The moment the music began to play, Tsukiko shifted forward and reached for her gravity power. She felt it answer her in an instant as she adjusted her weight to that of a cat. Just enough to give added momentum, but not enough to slow her down she hoped. Then with a flutter of excitement, Tsukiko leaped forward. She could feel her body working to propel her forward. The strike of her foot upon the soft earth, the sound of her breath in her ears, and the feel of her clothing stretching to accommodate her movements. Two heart beat later, Tsukiko pushed off and leapt high into the air. Aiming for a thick tree branch ten feet from the ground.... and she nearly missed if she hadn't used an instant increase in weight to slow her momentum. The instant that she felt the tree against her foot, she adjusted her weight and pushed off. Zipping through the air as if she had wings.

Tsukiko flung herself into the sounds of the music and the racing of her heart. A grin spread wide across her features as she danced through the tree tops. She leaped, twisted, alternated her weight, and tried not to impale herself on the sharp branches.

Not all of her landings or transitions were graceful, but she managed. It was so unlike anything she had done before, so... wild and was nothing she had ever experienced before. It drove her faster and faster as he music encouraged it of her. Fatigue set on her suddenly and abruptly as she miscalculated a jump. Tsukiko's middle collided with the tree as she fell short. She scrambled for grip as the air was knocked form her lungs, but she simply was not quick enough and she fell. She tumbled towards the earth in a very ungraceful sprawl. Her hands worked her magic after she realized she was in trouble. A platform of silvery light formed beneath her feet and locked itself to the soles of her shoes. Then, as if she were snowboarding on air, she righted herself and slowed her decent till she merely hovered in place. She stood there pant with shock and the exhilaration of what she had just accomplished. Her orbs had bleached silver with the thrills running through her veins.

She had no words for it... She had exceeded her own expectations and it was amazing. Simply amazing.

Follow your nose. It actually means something to a werewolf.

Unless of course... what you're following doesn't have a scent. In which case you follow another scent. You find "like" scents. What smells are present in the world but completely alien to the forest. Maybe a specific mineral. Just the slightest hint can be used to pick up a scent. But after a while of slowly casing the same area... a new scent blew in on the soft breeze. He sniffed. It was familiar.

The scent of 2 day past laundry detergent, expensive rose masking odor removing spray, and most distinctly no matter how much she tried to cover it up... goddess sweat.

- - -

Aidan approached his goddess from behind with an eerily natural stealth even out here in the forest where everything was so quiet.

"Good day." He gave a polite greeting, as if he were a stranger. But for Aidan, this was being "friendly". Since it was more of a greeting and DEFINITELY more of a kind word than Aidan usually spared others. Because really... in what world are you supposed to be kind to your food? He apparently figured that was enough of a greeting. He waited for her to turn around.

... and oh, how she would regret it when she did.

Because there stood Aidan next to a tree, as naked as the day he came into the world. Sweat glistened about his body like he was something straight out of a pop culture supernatural movie. Unfortunately... that was the most serene thing about his appearance. Because his chin, neck, chest, and almost the entirety of his left side was covered in blood. Though he seemed to be making no qualm about it. Nor the fact that he was naked.

"Have you seen a... white fox? It has 3 tails. Cute, beautiful, majestic... and a complete abomination to our natural world that must be destroyed, lest it allude me again."

... Okay. And that about summed it up pretty nicely.

Tsukiko let herself float down to the ground slowly and then let her power fade away. She was panting hard from the exhilaration and from the heavy use of her powers. Her blood was pumping wildly in her ears as she stood with a idiotic smile plastered to her lips.

Tsukiko slid the straps of her small backpack off her shoulders and began rummaging through it. She located a towel to wipe the sweat from her face. Oh how she hated the feel of perspiration. It was so... unbecoming of a noble lady like herself. Still, it wasn't like anyone was there to see her in such a state. She had specifically chosen such a secluded location to prevent anyone seeing her train.

Quite suddenly, something cool and familiar tickled her otherworldly senses. Something that she had felt just the other night when she had come across a werewolf. That tell-tale whisper in her bones of a Moon-touched's prescience. Before she could investigate the curious warning, a voice behind her nearly made her leap for the tree's overhead. She jumped and dropped her bottle of water to the ground as she whipped around to spy Aiden... and found herself at a complete loss for thoughts or words.

For there he stood in his complete naked glory without so much as if doing so was the most natural state in the world. Tsukiko blinked and gaped... as she had never seen a man fully disrobed before. Call her young, call her exceptionally sheltered, call her a girl who had not even held hands with a boy until the other night. For she was all of those and thus Tsukiko did the most natural thing in the world.

.... She shrieked and threw the towel in her hands at the boy and flipped around. Covering her poor, now emotionally silver, eyes with both hands. "Your NAKED!!!!!? WHY ARE YOU NAKED!?" It took her several more seconds to realize he had also been covered in blood. A trickle of fear broke through her sensation of shock. Enough worry leaked into her being that she very nearly turned back around to look for wounds, only to snap her head back in opposite direction. "Are you hurt?" She asked with real, still bashful, worry.

His goddess was flipping out about him not having clothes. He made sure to catch her towel with his non-bloodied hand. The idea of keeping his distance when someone is flipping out about him being naked didn't even enter his mind as he stepped forward.

He draped the towel back over her shoulder. "Because it allows for more freedom and maneuverability, brings me closer to nature." His fingers pinched the fabric and her shoulder and tugged it a little in demonstration. "I wasn't born in this stuff afterall." His voice held the clear disgust he had for clothing. Not that he was dissing her clothing sense... Aidan probably didn't even know what fashion sense was. He just didn't like the concept of clothing in general, no matter the type.

She turned back around to face him. Nice to see that a goddess could get over such minor things so quickly. To his surprise, she asked if he was hurt. ... Silly question, why would she think he- oh. Right. Blood. He looked down at his naked and bloodied self. He seemed to be at a loss for words because, well... no one had ever cared to inquire if he was hurt or not. Another new experience from his goddess. For as needless as the concern was, it was actually kind of nice, he found out.

"Mmm." He hummed. He actually seemed quite pleased with himself. That was the noise he made when he was about to brag. "I'm perfectly fine. The bear, however, is not."

... naked boy covered in blood comes out of the woods claiming he had just killed a bear. ... Totally normal, right?

He continued on and gestured out toward the woods back in the direction he had come from. "Anyway..." he dismissed everything from his state of undress to the fact that he claimed to have killed a bear, as if all of it was just a normal day in the life of Aidan. "The small white majestic abomination of the forest... it's fast and has no scent. Not something that should be in this world."

... because werewolves and embodiments of goddesses and super-powered teenagers are totally a normal part of the world, right Aidan?

He turned and looked at her curiously, having thought of something brilliant.

"... are you capable of detecting and locating such a thing?" You know, being a goddess and all? Seemed completely logical.

It was dreadfully clear that Aiden was QUITE comfortable in the nude as he spoke. She could not help but tense when he touched her shoulder... since he was standing so close and possessed no more covering than open air. Her face was an odd comportment of embarrassment mingled with shock. Poor, poor sheltered Tsukiko was having a terrible time whenever this boy appeared. Her comfort zones were quite shattered at this point.

She was not terribly sure if what he said was true. There was not a drop of desire in her to attempt anything of the sort as going bare to the world. "Natural or not... please would you at least care to cover your" Tsukiko stammered rather ineloquently. ".... your loins." Truth be told, Tsukiko would have been quite capable of handling a shirtless man or even pantsless.... but devoid of everything was something all together different.

Tsukiko had turned back to the boy as her concern over wounds won out. Only her eyes were locked upon his face with in intensity that suggested awkwardness would not sufficient enough a word. Her eyes were still pale silver for the same reason her cheeks were rosy in hue. Her mortification was temporarily distracted at the mention of a bear.... "Truly, a bear?" She asked in mild awe. Seeing as Tsukiko had grown up within the confines of human society, taking down a bare single handedly, without any weapons (as it was blatantly obvious he had none) was a feat she had never considered before. Of course she knew he was a werewolf, but in truth she did not understand just what they were capable of.

Then he went on to describe a strange creature and inquired about her own abilities. She looked thoughtful for several long moments as she wondered if such a thing were with the realm of her powers. "Thus far I'm only able to sense the Moon-touched. If it's not a creature tied to the moon, most likely not." Then it dawned on her that the animal in question was most likely a spirit fox. A flash of uncertainty shifted onto her features as she stared him down. "What do you mean abomination?"

What had the goddess so upset?

Apparently it was...

Aidan looked down when she mentioned it.

... his... loins.

................... oh.

And so with no sort of fuss made over it, he did as his goddess had been so gracious to request of him. Gracious, because a command would have been followed obediently. But she had been sure to make it sound like he had a choice in the matter. And that was both noted and appreciated. He took the towel back from her shoulder, realizing now why she had thrown it at him in the first place. He wrapped the towel around his waist so as to cover all parts that may offend his goddess... and still looked like something out of a horror movie. Like he had just gotten out of a bath that showered people with blood.

She seemed... oddly interested and impressed about his claims of taking down a bear. To Aidan, it was nothing out of the ordinary, of course. But what was of interest was the thing that she seemed... oddly not impressed with. An abomination of nature deceptively trying to cute around a small innocent 3-tailed white fox.

She went on to say... something about her powers. Her tone had hinted that her response would be a negative. And beyond that, Aidan apparently held no interest in hearing about his goddess' shortcomings or limitations. She was a goddess. She could do anything she wanted. But she was a new goddess, just like how he was a new immortal. He could understand that she was coming into her abilities.

... It was pretty obvious by his demeanor that, given his way, Aidan would be dragging her around until she could lead him to that fox. Because as far as he was concerned, she could do anything, including finding an abomination fox. She just apparently didn't know that she could yet.

He nodded a bit more patiently now that she was at least inquire about the abomination.

"Exactly that. An abomination. A blight unto the world in the form of a small white 3-tailed fox. Obviously magical in nature, unexplained, but it should not be here. Sapping off of the energies of the earth itself. I needs to be returned back into the earth."

He turned around and pointed off into the hills to the east. "It went that way... but alas, it is incapable of being tracked. It must be found." He gave her a very sincere and accepting nod. For the first time seemingly speaking to her as a kindred spirit more than his goddess. For in the light he spoke of, and given his logic... as direct beings of the natural world: moon goddess and earth spirit... it was their common charge to rid the world of this thing.

The tormented young Tsukiko was visibly relieved when certain parts of Aiden were properly concealed. Other than he was still rather gruesome in appearance so thus bathed in blood. In the least she was far more capable of handling that than his birth suit, as it were. While she was reasonably certain her more modern female counter parts wouldn't be as.... unsettled, Tsukiko was a girl born into very old, sheltered, tradition. Richly pampered as if she were the Princess of her clan. In a way she was, considering she had no real connection to any of her family members. Including her own father, whom was little more than a stranger. A stranger that was still eerily mesmerized by his fateful encounter with Tsukiko's mother.

Either way, Aiden was both a daunting and curious entity. Not only for their otherworldly ties, but also in the manner he approached everything. It was intriguing.

She listened to his words as her thoughts drifted in her mind. If this creature was indeed a spirit fox, then it was somewhat more natural than the boy claimed it to be. If it was anything like the multitude of stories, it was a spirit in possession of a flesh and blood body. A trait she often wondered if she shared in or if she were an entirely different sort of entity. And from Aiden's current appearance, Tsukiko had little doubt he probably intended to kill the creature.

"I have never seen a spirit fox before...." In the end, her curiosity won out over her hesitation to present Aiden with a killing opportunity. The desire to see such a spiritual creature was overwhelming, and if it was as horrid as the boy claimed, perhaps it was their duty to remove such a danger?

Purple eyes flicked onto Aiden with true curiosity, if hesitance as this was far from her realm of knowledge. "How does one track in the first place?" Embarrassment colored her features for a the barest moment. "I admit, that I was not often allowed out of my home." She hoped he would understand forgive any clumsiness she may succumb too in this 'outside world' she had only just came too.

Good!

Her curiosity was peaked. And that was all the lead Aidan needed to run with it. But then there was another change of pace because... she asked him about tracking. It was one of the things he was very good at. And then went on to talk about how she'd been sheltered. She seemed quite shy and embarrassed to admit that, for some reason.

Aidan nodded. And Tsukiko may find herself relieved to find out that, no, Aidan didn't seem to be judging her in the slightest. He'd fully accepted that she was still developing. Basically a Goddess-In-Training. And he totally understood that since he was the World's Last Prophet and Future Earth Spirit-In-Training. He may have accidentally shown a tinge of what might have been enthusiasm in his nod. And she likely wouldn't find him getting easily impatient this time now that he knew a little more of her situation than last time. Because this was his goddess. Trying to learn and master what she needs to be a true goddess. And if he could be a part of helping her learn those things, even if for a small thing... he was honored.

And for the moment, the three-tailed white fox was forgotten about. Because he had yet to find a way to track it.

Aidan stepped forward, sniffing the air. Then he got down on his knees, leaning foward on the ground. And then lightly sniffed the ground. He motioned for her to join him, and pointed at the spot. He waited for to sniff, obviously expecting her to. She wouldn't find anything out of the ordinary.

"See? Tracking is simple. You get a scent, you identify it, you follow it." ... Sort of like he had said the first time they met. Aidan didn't know all of what made a werewolf different from a human. Didn't care enough to know. So he was assuming that, like his kind, she had the same affinity for picking up scents.

"Obviously we're going to track the female that was hear earlier. You can tell female by the fainter scent compared to the males. And we can track this one by the strong scent of shampoo, a sandwich she was carrying with her, and some kind of powder used unsuccessfully to mask her foot odor."

He motioned ahead toward the school. Expecting her to learn from experience, obviously. "Now that you have the scent... you can look for those distinct smells. You follow the scent, kind of like playing hot and cold."

... Okay, so apparently Aidan would be a good teacher if teaching other werewolves. But apparently he wasn't aware that powerful scent tracking was something exclusive to those like him.

Tsukiko was quite glad, and surprised, that he did not look down upon her for being so unfamiliar with the world outside her clan's walls. On the contrary, a light of eagerness shimmered in his sharp eyes at her interest in something from his world. She had a flicker of hesitance as to just what sort of monster she may have stirred from his depths, but it was quickly washed aside as he began to speak. She attempted to be the rapt student for him, as he obviously had such skills to offer her.

Only... she watched him draw himself towards the ground, hovering mere inches from the earth.... and sniff.

A delicate silver brow rose over her eye questioningly as it became quite apparent he wished her to do the same. A new hesitance over came her as she knelt down beside him in a most lady like fashion. He wanted her to place her nose.... there? She flashed him a doubtful look at the very unladylike suggestion that she sniff the ground. Still, he was honest to the gods, trying to show her something important. Thus... she would humor him in this most unbecoming tactic.

She folded her legs beneath her and brought her nose down to the earth. At first she could not bring herself to use it, in fear of just what she may smell...since this was more or less the wilds. Wild things tended to... just do what they wished. As evidence of a still quite naked Aiden.

Tsukiko drew in several small breaths with her nose.... and smelled nothing unexpected. Damp earth with the faint musk of decomposing things. She of course smelled her own odor, considering how hard she had been working herself just half an hour before. She also scented Aiden, and for she had little doubt it was him as they were nearly shoulder to shoulder. It was a heavier scent than her own, most definitely, and might have even been pleasant if it were not so thoroughly bathed in the scent of the blood.

She listened politely while she waited for a moment to speak. She almost felt a tinge of guilt that she was unable to pick up anything of the sorts he mentioned. It did, however, confirm some of her suspicions on his own abilities. She smiled with real humor as she watched him, until she was able speak up."I'm afraid, I do not possess a nose like yours, Aiden." She said with some amusement. "Aside from ourselves, and the dirt, I cannot smell anything else."

This... confused Aiden. She could smell themselves and the dirt but nothing else? He had only ever known how to smell all of these different things, and there had never been a point in his life where he couldn't. To describe how to pick up those smells and identify them... it was impossible. Like describing a color to a blind person.

Okay... use another method. And hopefully this one would work. It involved the eyes and... hopefully she saw things the same way he did. Or at least close. He knelt down at a spot on the grass and he pointed at seemingly nothing first. He gave her a questioning yet... a newfound patient look. And indeed, patience was almost a foreign concept to him when dealing with those not of his own kind.

"Are you able to see grass?" He spoke as if explaining things to an alien. But he held no mocking tone and his expression wasn't making fun of her. It may have seemed like a funny question... but to him her inability to see grass would have been just as alien to him as her not being able to pick up the scent on a tuna sandwich that had been here approximately 20 minutes ago.

But once he received confirmation and if he didn't offend her, he'd point at the grass, at specific pieces. "The grass is pressed lower in this spot. And its not just growing shorter. You can tell by the blades that are broken or laid over." He then motioned at the whole spot. Small, ovalish. Roughly the size of his hand. "That's the indention of a foot. You'd have to see a lot of different ones, but you can tell she's most likely female from the size and the weight. Which you can tell by how deep the indention is and the discoloring of the grass."

His eyes scanned the area closely for a few seconds as he stood. He took a half step and bent over again. He pointed at another spot that looked the same as the other. "Here's another. And over there's another. Judging from the distance between the steps, she's about your height. Just slightly taller, most likely."

His eyes spotted a couple other tracks further off, but he didn't point them out. He just gestured. "She went that way. Would you like to follow?"

confusion was apparent on his features as she admitted her shortcoming in comparison to his powerful nose. The look was genuine and brought a flicker of hilarity to the scenario, weather he knew so or not. Still he had such patience when he shifted onto his next tactic, that Tsukiko didn't dare chuckle. He was, after all, attempting to teach her something worthwhile. Something very alien to the world she was raised in.

Her eyes trailed down from his face to his finger and then to the subject of his pointing. She studied the area curiously, and really saw nothing out of place. Though she suspected she was missing something that he clearly saw. At his question, Tsukiko's lips quivered in amusement. "Yes, I am capable of seeing grass."

Then he did something quite interesting, or rather he spoke about something that slowly came to light before her eyes. Purple orbs were fixated on the little impression in the earth she suddenly noticed. She traced the blades of grass carefully with a great deal of curiosity, as it was just as he described. Tsukiko reached out and very gently ran her fingers of the trail of some long gone entity. While she had read about such things as tracking, this was the first Tsukiko had ever seen something for herself. It was utterly fascinating. "I truly see it..."

As he rose to take a step, Tsukiko could not help herself but to gaze at the impression his own foot left. She compared his to the one he had pointed out for a bare second before doing the same. When he indicated what direction the female went, Tsukiko was ready to follow the subtle trail. "Certainly." She said with true enthusiasm. The feeling of excitement was nearly alien to the girl for anything other than her own powers. It was a curious thing for more reasons than she could count.

Tsukiko's eyes carefully scanned the ground looking for those oh-so-important impressions in the earth. She stepped slowly, pausing here and there to really look at the ground beneath her feet. Tsukiko was able to follow the trail roughly a hundred feet, before the signs seemed to vanish. Of course the didn't in truth, it was the simple reason of her inexperience. She stared at the ground, fretting as she paced in a growing circle, looking for any hints of the female. Only each time she moved she was growing more frustrated and lost.

Aidan observed his goddess as she readily learned one of his arts. She seemed to actually be following. Her eyes must have been quite sharp to pick up so quickly on the details. Of course... she was a goddess.

He was surprised that she hadn't lost the trail sooner than she did. But she lost it eventually. And her frustration grew the more she tried to find it and failed. He watched, waiting for a few minutes to see if she actually could find it again without his help.

But eventually he held his hand up to her, motioning her back to a previous track. "If you get frustrated, you'll keep overlooking it while the track grows over again." He pointed down to the last track she'd seen. "You got too used to the pattern. Look. The last print is closer to the last one. And this is going downhill. The next track looks different so you didn't notice... it's here." He pointed at a track that was roughly the same size but much heavier than the others. And quite a bit further off than the others had been spaced out. "The evidence shows that she stumbled." He went on to point to the next track, the one she didn't look at since she got thrown off by the "heavier" print. "She regained her balance heavily in that step and continued normally from here..."

And he motioned her in the right direction again after getting her back on the trail. Tracking... it was almost like detective work. Sherlock Aidan on the hunt.

She was almost to the point of huffing when he motioned her to stop. She stilled and stared at him as he lead her back to the path. She listened as he explained what she clearly had missed. It made far more sense and was ridiculously noticeable when he pointed it out.... which was a tad embarrassing, but then she was forced to remind herself he had been doing this far longer.

Tsukiko touched the heavier tracks and the point of slipping, as if she were creating a complete map of the shapes in her mind. While she wasn't exactly world wise, Tsukiko had a sharp learning mind.

Carefully, she set back to following the trail. It was slow going as she was taking her time to investigate each print that even vaguely looked different. She was paying so much attention to the ground at her feet, between glances at Aiden to make certain she was on the right path, that Tsukiko failed to notice a bush just off to her left. As she brushed past the foliage, Tsukiko disturbed the three small birds nesting in it. Sending them into a shrieking flutter right beside the girl as they burst into the air. The sudden noise coupled with the chaotic movement started the young goddess, causing her to shriek and jump back towards Aiden as if he was the safest place to be.... If she had been wiser, she probably wouldn't have considered the bear eating 'werewolf' the 'safest'...

Or maybe in her case... "safest" happened to be exactly what he was.

He had been following close behind, so when she jumped back his way she nearly collided with him. He moved to the side so she wouldn't collide with him, but a strong sturdy arm stopped her from moving back too far. His mind immediately questioned what in this world could startle the birds and his goddess like that... failing to realize that it had been the birds that startled her. And in the next moment, said strong arm squeezed around her instinctively, protectively. He held her to his side, indication that whatever malevolent force had caused panic in the goddess would not be harming her so long as he was around.

His eyes narrowed at the bush. He didn't see anything... didn't smell anything. And so it was obvious...

"... you sensed the white fox? Keep behind me, it's dangerous..." He guided the young goddess behind him as he hunkered down, slowly stalking toward the bush. Ready to ambush the white fox'esque abomination should it be there. Return the tainted creature back to where it came from. Not that he doubted his goddess weak, but she was developing and had admitted that much herself. So until the time came that she completely ascended... he would be the one making sure no grievous harm came to her.

... And so Tsukiko may find herself in a bit of an awkward embarrassing situation right now. Given that she might have to explain to Aidan that it was birds that had startled his potentially assumed omnipotent goddess.

Tsukiko found her momentum stopped by a very strong arm that she hadn't really expected to find. Her eyes shifted down onto the arm as it suddenly curled around her, drawing her close to his body in a way that suggested something would have to go through him to get to her. Tsukiko's mind was at a loss for thoughts as she stood tamely by his side. No one had ever acted in such a way for her, before. Certainly her clan protected her... but she had always had the feeling if someone truly wanted her dead they would not risk their own lives, threat of her mother's furry or not. These were the times in which gods were lost to cell phones and science.

She stood with eyes wide with uncertainty of just how to respond to this sudden situation, and how he had reacted. It wasn't until he mentioned the fox that Tsukiko's cheeks threatened to dawn a rosy hue in embarrassment. "Aiden, I don't thi-.... " Tsukiko's words stalled in her throat as something silver caught her eye to her right. With Aiden so intently focused on the bush ahead, she wasn't sure he could see it.

Purple orbs shifted onto the pale color to find a figure that had not been there a moment before, and somehow she doubted he was truly 'there' anyway... For it was the figure of a man out of time, the very image of a Samurai from centuries past. He stood proudly with light armor on, his hand resting comfortably on his sword hits as he stared at them. He was young, easily in his twenties, with long silver horse tail draping down his back. He looked every bit of a ghost, cast in a silver glow as he smirked in amusement at her notice.

"Aiden...."She set her delicate hand on his shoulder to gain his attention as she remained transfixed by the appearance of the ghost like samurai. If Aiden would look his way, he would seem to solidify from his semi-transparent look a moment before.

Whatever awkwardness or embarrassment his goddess was experiencing, he neither paid it any mind or understood it. His protective nature was on edge, especially with that unnatural fox abomination around here.
Quote:
 
"Aiden, I don't thi-.... "

"I'm not sure... but I don't think it's the fox." He wasn't really paying attention to her. He lowered his arm after a few moments, figuring it not to be anything highly threatening. He didn't judge her easily spooked, since he was sure his goddess by nature could detect things that he couldn't.

She grabbed for his attention again, this time putting a hand on his shoulder. And so he paid attention. He saw her first. She seemed quite surprised by something... and then he saw it. A samurai. In full armor and with a katana. He had just missed its spectral appearance and so was oblivious to its spiritual nature.

Of course... he wasn't anymore out of place here than a werewolf or a goddess, truth be told. And so Aidan only regarded him as such: just like he would anyone else who was bothering him.

"Go away. We're busy. And you're blocking our trail." He did however make sure to impose himself between the samurai and his goddess. He didn't like the look on the guy's face.

Tsukiko stared at the Samurai in a mixture of uncertainty and fascination. She had little doubt he was a spirit, those senses she had been developing of late fairly blared it at her. Then there was something else about the being.... while she had never recalled seeing his like before... he did not entirely feel like a stranger. It was odd and tickled at the back of her mind, but she had no answer for it.

Either way, he watched regarded them out of dark blue eyes. Eyes that were sharp and she was certain could shift to deadliness if he were in the mood for blood. His attention was firmly focused on Tsukiko with that casual amusement that betrayed his curiosity. "So, the little one can see me now... Interesting." He said more to himself.

His lips flickered into a full on grin at Aiden's words before subsiding back to his previous smirk. A fierce, challenging look appeared alongside that smile. "So rude, wolf pup..." He said as his thumb pushed the hilt of sword free of its sheath, though he did not draw it further. Still, it was something of a threat, if a subtle one. "If I were a less prideful man, I would take a paper fan too your nose." He eyed Aiden with a keen scrutiny, as if he were weighing something behind those blue eyes of his.

Tsukiko remained behind Aiden as she stared over his shoulder at the spirit. She was at a loss for what to do or even say. So many questions rose in her mind, yet she did not seem capable of voicing them. Then of course there was Aiden's behavior that left her more than a little puzzled with herself. When she saw the sword shift, her uncertainty bloomed into worry for her new friend. He was, after all, quite without any weapons... since he only possessed her towel. Then again, he was a werewolf and surely that came with abilities she was not at all familiar with. Still... this man seemed to be a trained fighter with a sword, and a spirit no less.... who knew what he was capable of?

Aidan caught what he said about the "little one", but he paid no mind to it. Of little significance. And then he insulted him and took on a challenging look.

He had spoken of being a less than prideful man... and Aidan humored that if he were less than leagues above him, he my be inclined to be offended. But seriously...

... when is the last time an ant offended you?

But he did notice the man's hand going to his sword. And this was the only thing that gave Aidan any sort of caution. Not for him, but for his still-developing goddess. Aidan motioned her behind and then took several steps toward the man. No fear of the man or his blade, no acknowledgment of any sort of threat. As if he were immortal and well... he certainly believed himself to be.

He was right up in the samurai's face. Perhaps not the most intimidating in his bathtowel... or perhaps even moreso since he had such composure and confidence and fearlessness in the face of an armed opponent.

"I've never warned someone twice. And there definitely won't be a third. Leave now or take a knee. You stand before a deity."

... a bit of a long silence before he realized there may be some confusion. He motioned back at Tsuki. In case there was any confusion in this moment that he may be the deity instead of the girl he was defending.

The spirit samurai was quite as fearless as Aiden the werewolf. He watched with smirking interest as the werewolf closed the distance aggressively, placing himself by inches from one another. The Samurai's blue eyes were shining with intense interest in this youngster who stood before him nude and bold as he pleased. Blue eyes flicked briefly onto Tsukiko with a shaded curiosity, but it was clear a majority of his focus was on Aiden.

"Such confidence for one so young..." His lips quivered into an amused, 'I know more than you do' grin as he spoke. "However... are you truly so certain you know, exactly, what she is? Are you ever so certain? A god in mortal flesh.... laughable as they say... " The samurai was pushing Aiden, Tsukiko could sense it in the depths of her being. Yet she could not fathom what reasons he may have for doing so, unless he was the sort of spirit that was ever so eager for a battle.

Tsukiko listened, and even hesitated at the man's words. She and Aiden had only been acquainted for a short time, in truth. Pushing such questionable doubts onto the boy now with such a fresh friendship, she was unsure if a budding bond could withstand it. After all... how could Aiden know what she truly was, if Tsukiko herself questioned the nature of her existence?

... So many questions for one not accustomed to concerning over such matters.

Was she really what she said? How did this guy know about her? About what she was or what she claimed to be? What did he know that he didn't?

Of course... one must understand something. Aidan never acts on something without a base certainty. That base certainty being his instinct. He trusted it more than he trusted the color of the sky. And Aidan never spent time contemplating things. Act in the moment, respond to the next when it comes, and never dwell on previous moments. Right now, he believed she was a goddess of the moon. That's what his instinct told him. She made the claim and his instinct didn't tell him to distrust her claim. Could he be deceived? Yes. And he would deal with her accordingly should he find out she was deceiving him. But his instinct spoke to him of no such deceit.

"Hm..." It was a hum that suggested that perhaps the man had a good point. "I wonder..." He gazed back at Tsuki in question, but... it was obvious by his look that he wasn't doubting her at all.

But suddenly his eyes flashed with some sort of ferocity, taking in a deep breath and looking skyward as if his self-control was leaving him. "I wonder..." he repeated. Another breath. "... about one who dares to call my goddess laughable..."

And without any sort of warning or hesitation, Aidan spun around. Teeth bared and seeming to look somehow sharper. In the same action, he pressed himself to the samurai, making it hard to draw a sword against him and unbalance him with a wild and untamed assault. His hands went to both side of his head... thumbs aimed to drive into his eyesockets with his slightly elongated nails.

Should that be successful, he would pounce this damned fool. Driving his head back by the eyesockets in a painful jerk. And then his teeth would go straight for the man's neck, tearing at it viciously and without any sort of care or remorse to a brutal murder.

Tsukiko paused in her thoughts as Aiden looked her way, and spoke those words that so nearly sounded like he questioned her. She stood still, with her breath in her throat... and then she wondered herself, why should it matter so much if Aiden believed her? Among her clan she had felt very little in the way of concern for her relatives, and more often than not, it had been contempt that she felt. For how they had secluded her, sheltered her, treated her as some kind of object of worship rather than a living being, and most of all she had hated how they hadn't dared to show any familial affections.

So why did it matter so much that Aiden should believe her, when it contradicted everything she had wanted a child? She pondered the thought, and truly had no answer for it. Perhaps it was his apparent fascination for her inhuman side, and she had a sneaking suspicion he would disappear if it were not there. Then again, why did she care if he vanished? .... So many questions and too few answers.

Suddenly, Tsukiko's purple eyes were fixated on the look Aiden presented then. A look that was nothing other than feral in nature, it stalled her thoughts and breath alike. Not necessarily due to fear, but rather a strange fascination of her own. She had never been privy to such a look before, let alone seen it donned in defense of her honor.

The Samurai, however, did not seem altogether that started by the abrupt shift in temperament. He took a retreating step back, as one would naturally from an assault. Only, his fingers quickly clicked his sword shut as Aiden attacked.... and would completely pass through the Samurai's body as if he were no more than a ghost. The Samurai would turn to look at Aiden, who would most likely be surprised by the ineffectiveness of the attack. A smile spread thin and wide on the man's face as he regarded the boy. "Quite loyal for such a young pup." He said thoughtfully, and again Tsukiko got the impression he was still trying to push Aiden's buttons. "Especially to a young so called Godde- .... "Frankly it was beginning to push her's as well as she watched the man toy with her new companion. She was a half-god for crying out loud! She couldn't let Aiden be the only one to defend her honor. Before the man could finish his sentence, a ball of light crashed into the back of his head sending him stumbling forward. He shook himself out of his surprise as he twisted around to stare at Tsukiko in shock.

"That is quite enough!" She declared with all the arrogance born as someone was considered to be a living god. Her eyes were narrow as she regarded the man fiercely, inwarwardly she was nearly as surprised as the man that her power had managed to connect with him. "Cease baiting my companion, or by my Holy Mother, I will finish what he started... "

He showed no sort of response really to the man personally baiting him... it held the same importance to him as being taunted by an ignorant child. However, Aidan was confused.

Why wasn't the man under him, bleeding out, begging like so many before him, gurgling and sputtering and downing in his own blood?

Even more confusing but entirely relevant... how did he pass through him like that? He hadn't missed. He had passed through him. He was clearly confused when the man started to talk. But he quickly put two and two together. He seemed like a man out of time, he couldn't smell him, and he couldn't touch him. So before the man finished talking, he had pretty much assumed he was talking to a spirit or some sort of... projection.

But before he even had time to start wondering about what he could do to hurt a ghost... his goddess had had enough.

ZAP'D!

... and of course divinity could harm ghosts. So that part was no surprise to him. Definitely not as much of a surprise as the fact that she had zapped the man for baiting "him"... and not because of anything he had said about her. He hadn't realized he stood that high in her favor for her to take such offense over him. It was weird, surely being a goddess she had several worshippers, right?

Aidan stepped back over the fallen specter as if he weren't even worth acknowledging anymore, and joined back at his goddess' side. "My apologies... it seems I'm not best fit to defend you from incorporeal beings... yet." His said with the confidence that he would soon enough be correcting that minor shortcoming.

He stood at her side, looking down at the fallen samurai. He looked at her a bit curiously.

"Continuing what I started... I doubt not your abilities. But..." He gestured at the fallen samurai as if he nothing more than yesterday's topic now. "To successfully rip out a throat, one needs exceptionally sharp teeth as well as strong jaw and neck muscles." He looked back down at the ghost, his eyes contemplating the best cold murder for him. "Put perhaps if you went more to the left or right side, the teeth wouldn't have to rend as much..."

Yes. Aidan was trying to best instruct his goddess on how to rip a ghost's throat out, since he was incapable to doing such to non-physical entities. And he spoke as if the man were just a corpse lying there ready for such experimentation, as if he were already dead. ... again.

The ghost samurai stared at Tsukiko for several long moments as she glared at him, as it appeared he was attempting to process his thoughts. He studied the young goddess with a mixture of curiosity and obvious surprise that she had retaliated so.

Meanwhile, Tsukiko's glare lost much of its potency at the rather outlandish suggestion of 'how' to rip the ghost's throat out. Wide purple eyes snapped onto Aiden, appalled at the mere thought of her actually biting anyone.. let alone attempting to kill and rend flesh. In fact, the image made her rather nauseated on multiple levels before she shook the visual from her mind. She rounded on Aiden with a look of irritation tinged with a faint blush of embarrassment. "That is NOT what I meant.... I.... " She shook herself again and promptly dismissed the coming argument. "It does not matter." instead she turned back to the samurai. "You, Spirit, what is your motive to harass us, or are you a simple imp who fell prey to boredom?"

The Samurai stood and brushed himself off, and apparently preened his appearance a trifle as if he was presenting himself to someone he wanted to make a good impression to. Then he did something that Tsukiko did not expect, he kneeled and dipped his head to the young woman. "Young Mistress, please do not take my actions to temper. I merely was testing this wolf you have chosen as an companion, to see his worth with my own eyes." Tsukiko studied him carefully, and suspiciously as he spoke again. "My name is Ryu, and I have been charged with your protection since your birth by your Lady Mother." He lifted his eyes just enough to show the depths of his sincerity as Tsukiko's hid the astonishment from her features. It may explain why the man did not feel like such a complete stranger onto the girl.. and perhaps why he was not overtly threatening so much as toying. "However, As it appears you can see me even in my cloaked form... it means your time of trial is approaching and my duty as your guarding will be revoked."
She soaked in his words cautiously as she pondered her thoughts. "What is this trial that you speak of?" She asked with care. "Why would my mother, who I have not seen since the day of my birth, charge you so? I have not once seen nor communicated with her in fifteen years."

A strange look of weary, unhappiness mingled with resentment, passed over the samurai's face, a mixture of emotions that were all potent yet clearly he did not dare speak of them. "I am forbidden to speak of the circumstances." He said instead. "But know this, it was never your Mother's will to abandon you, and she cares most deeply for your wellbeing..." He trailed off in thought as if something was drawing his attention away before he returned it to Tsukiko. "The trial, is for you to prove your potency as a spirit... at least that is the 'official' reason by the Gods' Laws. In all honesty, Young Mistress, it will be an attempt to kill you without raising the ire of the other gods."

Tsukiko had fallen stiff and silent as she stared at the Samurai kneeling before her. His words had hit her in a way that she did not know how to respond nor even think. Her mother.... Her Goddess Mother, cared for her? It had been something she had dreamed of since she understood she was alone. If this spirit-warrior's words were truth, Tsukiko's mother had not abandoned her..., no, in fact something was keeping her away. The very same something that may be threatening her life now.

Aidan was looking around quite nonchalantly. As if all of this was going over his head and beyond his world of reason and understanding. But that wasn't the truth. Aidan simply took things in stride: rarely surprised, often confused, never intimidated. Aidan lived and reacted in the moment, only and always. All of these things, while of concern, were not of concern right now. And he would deal with them and protect his goddess from them as they would come.

His attention was back on them once he noticed Tsukiko's look on the spectral samurai. Such concern and so obviously stunned by the news that she seemed to not be registering everything else beyond the two of them. Whether it was concern or worry or fear or happiness... it was beyond him to understand such things without knowing.

But considering how troubling the words of "Something among the gods wants to kill you." may be to some... Aidan took it upon himself to decide that his Goddess had been bothered enough by all of this today.

And so he broke whatever gaze she and the samurai had fixed on each other by casually stepping between them.

"Given your words, you may inform them that she will not be attending the trial." Spoken sternly, as if the word were already final.

................ who was he to speak for a goddess? ... Someone who honestly believed himself to be the future spirit of the earth the last prophet of the current one. He may hold Tsukiko to a degree of reverence... but he was well aware of his own (perceived) position as well. He may view his position in lower regard to his goddess... but being her self-appointed protector as well... he didn't seem to find himself stepping out of line at all to insist that she wouldn't be attending the trial. Not while knowing that there may be divinity who wanted her dead. Even if said goddess wished to undergo the danger... he still spoke as if his was the one and only say on the matter.

... and it would take a lot of guilt-tripping, pleading, tears, and batting eyelashes from the goddess to convince him otherwise.

"Retire your services and inform her mother she need not worry. She'll be under my watch until she develops to the point she no longer needs my protection."

Hearing of a potential threat to his goddess... he held a bewildered look in his eye as if he were on alert, on guard. He knew that she would eventually get to the point where she was... well... a goddess. But until her power developed, she was vulnerable. And it sounded as if there were those who wished to exploit the undeveloped half goddess.

His arm pulled instinctively around her shoulder and then her to his side, in the same fashion it had earlier when she had been startled. His protective and possessive nature had been peaked with the thought of someone wanting to kill the goddess. The Last Prophet would let any curious eye on earth or in the heavens behold who they would have to go through to get to her.

"Until then, I'll cut down every man, beast, or spirit that tries to harm or threaten her. And should divinity wish to harm her, I'll tear down a god as well."

It was... odd the way he spoke. But reassuring to the right ear. Some may think he spoke out of ego. But he spoke not like someone who believed that he could take on a god and win... nor was it a challenge. He instead spoke as if that was simply how things were. Just a simple statement that he would and at least make it not at all a fun or easy task for whoever the foe was.

It was fearlessness. Not confidence or pride... simply a complete lack of fear. Of anything. Because when you're convinced that you're immortal... what is there to fear? But it was more than that, and a trait that Aidan seemed he would possess even if he were not convinced that he couldn't die. No fear, no worry, no hesitation.

He wouldn't remove his arm from the smaller girl unless she removed herself from it or commanded him. Nor would he think anything odd about the protective gesture. His gaze fell on her.

"We'll leave once you're done speaking with the spirit."
