Shinigai had been struggling with a lot of inner feelings lately. He had not taking on any missions due to this and had decided to go on somewhat of a mission binge as he would make his way down the village streets and to the mission center he would take on a mission he had done not too long ago. It was something that dealt with the killings that were occurring in the village. A man was brave enough to make his way into the village and kill tons of ninja each week. Their bodies left there to be seen by any unlucky soul that had stumbled upon them. Sure this was a pass time for some people and they loved the sight of blood and spilled guts, and sure the ninja of the world had found their own pass time in both killing people. But it had been a different thing to fight someone that could defend their self and could maybe be stronger then the other. As shinigai would make his way through the village he would look around as he did not want to be the next target of attacks. The man did not seem to have a certain demographic they were after but it would seem they just loved the act of killing. The last case he had seen was the bloody apartment of a random man, this did not scare him, or at least that was how he wanted it to be. The thought of death shook him to his core.
The darkness of the night would leave the village quiet and the deaths would keep the ninja's inside for the night. Even the civilians were not bold enough to make their way outside of their homes. As shinigai would make his way to a large house that would be the last target of the attacks. He had no idea what he would see this time around as he would walk up to the door and begin to jiggle the knob of the front door. It was locked. So how had the man made his way into the home. As he would look around the area and see an alley that led to the back of the house. As he would walk to it and make hi way behind the house he would check evey nook and cranny he would see for any openings. Suddenly the creeping of a door could be heard. The wind blowing in the back of the house causing the door to swing back and forth. As shinigai would make his way around the building he would see this door and see that this had to of been where the murderer made his way into the home. As he would step closer to the door he would push it open. The creaking of the door would echo through the halls of the home and the door would be wide open for the young man to walk in. As he began to walk through he would look around as he creeped in. The door would lead the the kitchen. It had seemed to be empty and as if the person who lived here had not made a meal himself in years. The floor was dirty and had dust and dirt tracks all over it. As shinigai would look around he would see a hallway that lead to the rooms in the back of the house. As he would place his hand on the counter and breath a bit he would try and recollect himself before seeing the horrible mess that the enemy had left the moon village to see.
As he would walk to the back of the home he would see two doors. Both would be closed and would have no signs of forced entry as he would chose the one that faced toward the front of the house. Part of him would know that he was stalling as he was just trying to avoid having his heart jump out of his chest once again. As he would open the door he would see a pink room. It had been as if there was a girl that stayed in this room. with little stuffed animals littering the room and a small bed in the corner. It had seemed to be untouched as the boy would look around. Looking into the closet he would notice there were no clothes in the room either. It had been weird but he would think about the fact that the home seemed pretty small and pretty empty on food for a wife to live here. He was single and his wife had left him with his daughter. A sad fact but he would shake his head and continue to the back room. Opening the door he would take a peek inside to see the bloody mess of the incident. He was here for one reason. He would need samples of the decaying man that laid on the ground dead. As he would step closer to him he would pluck a few of the bloody pieces of hair and put them into a tube. The place was giving him the creeps as he looked around as if something was going to come out of no where to take him out and leave him dead like the man that laid on the floor. Shinigai would give a quick prayer for the dead man and then turn away. "We will find this man" He would say as he left the home and went back to the mission center.
