new world coming ♥
Upon exiting the council chambers, the sky itself was in turmoil. As shinobi dashed to ensure the safety of the village, I made my way to my favourite vantage point, a lonely stretch of stone, rarely populated by Iwagakure citizens. It was quite the sight. The sky, clear and calm before my entry to the council, was now a roiling sea of dark and disturbed clouds, and if I wasn't mistake, they were gravitating towards a focal point... but where? To the east, but far enough to be the land of lightning? Perhaps the north of the land of fire... or one of the minor countries? And, for that matter, what on earth was it?
As I watched, the event seemed to reach it's denouement, a wild culmination, and the noise crashed throughout the sky. This was more than a powerful jutsu, this was entirely beyond anything I'd seen before! And then, as suddenly as it had started, it was finished, leaving behind a brand of light that pierced the sky. Even being able to see it from so far was a testament to whatever enormous power was conducting such a display, and I wrapped my arms about myself, trying to suppress a chill that had run through my body.
The light didn't seem to be dissipating, and the eerie noise that had accompanied the whole event played still in the background. Despite the immense distance, I had always been sensitive to chakra, and I almost formed the sensory handseal, as if I could identify this occurrence in some way. But I was the Tsuchikage now, I would have to identify this occurrence, in whatever capacity I could. Scouts would need to be sent, but...
It unnerved me, this monstrous demonstration of power. An ancient, forbidden jutsu? A summoning of some unearthly power? Anybody I sent would likely be in grave danger. Could I go myself? I was as curious as I was cautious, and I would not feel guilt if I attended to the investigation myself. Oh, what on earth was going on? My petty power squabbles with the council seemed rather insignificant now. Come now darling, you are perfectly capable of addressing this! A decision must be made, of course, but what to do...
