- Mission Info:
- Name: Eliminate the Target
Participants: Moon Village, Sun Village, Missing Ninja
Type: Group Mission
Reward: 45 EXP, 20 Ryo

Details: This is what separates the basic every day ninja from your high profile shinobi, the assassination mission. This mission is asking you to eliminate a low level target, often a petty criminal, someone who has escaped prison who someone who could later disrupt the village. They are often not shinobi, but are of considerable power. This mission is simple, find and take out the target with as little repercussion as possible.
Requirements: Each person must make at least four posts, totaling to 1600 WC.
It was too soon to go out looking for SwollenMan after what had happened in the wilderness with Hikari. Still, she had only gotten pieces of the fighting and the story after it all. It seemed everyone involved had memories they weren't completely willing to divulge but judging by the injuries she had observed recovering while she herself was in recovery, plenty of things had happened while she was unconscious. Kannagi was angry: angry at Kenji for being unable to use her sacrifice to finish their mission and stop Hikari, angry with Hikari for injuring her and putting himself in harm's way, angry at the people who had convinced Hikari to go with them, angry at the Blaze members who had also failed their mission, but above everything she was angry with herself for being unable to reach Hikari despite how she revealed her deepest vulnerabilities and had made herself a burden instead of an asset during the mission. Pursuing SwollenMan was a necessary evil, something she needed to complete regardless of the soreness in her body and mind. She might have saved those children with Hikari's help but it was time to go after SwollenMan before he ran away or recovered too much. Kannagi clenched her hands tightly and then relaxed them when pain lanced through her body. Tension was too painful and she focused on her breathing to stay calm.
She had healed well enough, but not without scarring. It seemed every time she thought about that night, about Hikari, the pain would return to her and the sudden fearfulness of both living and dying consumed her. Traumatic though it was, the kunoichi had to finish off SwollenMan even if she hadn't fully recuperated. The woman approached the same collapsed sand dunes and caves that she had been to before and examined the area carefully. It appeared that some of the rubble had been moved or displaced on the half of the underground caves where she knew SwollenMan, or whatever was down here, was still hiding. This would have been easier with the Usagi who could read these tunnels with his ears and feet, silently locating the monster or man for a stealthy attack. The situation was what it was, and Kannagi had to go on. She touched the side of her neck, a small knot of gnarled white flesh could be felt betwixt the new skin, the place where she had almost had her jugular cut apart and then climbed down towards the rubble and entered the darkness of the tunnels.
