Before Fujioka, a burst of red light formed...something...some type of gate or vortex, a swirling pressure filled envelopment of light and furious heat that distorted everywhere that it touched. Naitome could feel it, even from his hidden position several meters away; a shell of magnetism reached out and interacted across the boundaries of space, he could feel that aura getting pulled towards the conjoined vortices created by Fujioka's stolen 'lock'. In a burst of discolored flame, Naitome watched in awe as the circle of light swelled and from its center, a woman's hand and head extended.
The rest of the woman's body seemed reluctant to emerge. Her eyes opened, eyes the same unsettling blue as Fujioka, skin the same off-putting gray, the two looked as if they obviously shared the same clan, she could even be Fujioka's
Fujioka shouted, grasping the hand that was free, forgetting everything in the sheer joy of seeing her.
She responded, though the voice seemed to be traveling a much farther distance, was barely picked up by the wind.
"I told you sis.....i told you didn't I? I said I would get you out no matter what and I did! I don't care about the village, I don't care about anything but you, Mai. Please....I just need to find where your prison is, and then..."
Fujioka paused, eyes full of emotion, while Naitome, unable to take any more, removed himself finally from the shadow.
"You're trying to save...your sister...
Naitome began, quietly. The assembled group looked at him, weapons instantly at the ready, but something about Naitome's face stopped them in their tracks...
...Naitome was crying.
He thought of his own sister, Duriima, and how'd he lost her to war, weak and fragile as he was, unable to convince her to leave her new home in Yukigakure and find him. He thought of his inadequacies; the glint in his eyes was full of determination and anger, love and old fragments of concern. Six individuals stared at the Sunagakure genin as he slowly approached the crimson vortex holding Fujioka's sister hostage, and sunk to his knees, bowing in supplication.
Naitome rose his head while Fujioka and his main accomplice looked on in mild confusion.
"...I...I too lost a sister...during the war.....and the village...."
"...the village told me not to let it bother me, not to search for the body....but they've been holding your sister in this..."
"...what is this?"
Naitome said, indicating the phenomenon of chakra before him.
Fujioka placed a hand tentatively on Naitome's shoulder, and spoke in a gentle voice.
"This....is a prison."
"My sister was...not necessarily the bravest of shinobi, and when the war came, when they wanted 'volunteers' for the front lines, she got scared. She thought they were calling her to die. You see, our family is quite gifted at utilizing wind release techniques, and we would be able to mount a powerful defense, coupled with other strong users in the village. But often times, many of us die. And our family had already lost many to the constant battles."
"But Sunagakure didn't understand that. They thought of her only as a coward, and even though she'd served as a dutiful ninja for years, they only cared about making an example out of someone."
"They tried to imprison her by normal means at first, but...something happened. She can't stand being trapped, none of us can...it makes us go crazy. She was just...frightened. While trying to escape she...she killed a guard that was some distant family member of Sand's Daimyo and..."
"And they decided to use this technique to keep her trapped. You see, the prison has a lock, and the lock has a key, but all are scattered to different wavelengths of reality. One must find the key, then find the lock, then find the prison. Only when you've brought all three elements together, can the prison be opened."
"I still don't know where the actual prison is. But I know that wherever its at...is hurting Mai."
Fujioka paused and indicated his sister, a small sigh escaping his lips.
"But Sunagakure knows where the prison is. They've got records for every forbidden jutsu they've ever performed locked away in that vault of theirs, but its proven impossible so far. There's just too much stuff in there to search through. Only Kiyoshi's been able to break in multiple times, but it could take years without someone who can get direct access to the Kage's chamber. We won't dare try to break in again."
"But....I think...we may have just found someone who can help."
The accomplice said looking down at Naitome with hope in his eyes.
"How could....how could the village do something like that...."
a look of bewilderment crossing his face. Naitome stood and gripped the handle of his sword tightly, furious. His arms were shaking with violent intent, while his face became a mask of dissatisfaction and stress.
"This isn't right. I don't care what happens to me, something is...corrupt in this land, and I won't stand for it."
Naitome lowered his head solemnly and said
"What do you need me to do?"
