Probably His Last chance [Requesting Entry]

Kumogakure is protected by a combination of impassable rock formations and sheer unclimbable cliff faces. The only access to and from the village is located within the Dragon Tooth Pass, where an opening was once blasted through stone in ancient times through means impossible to replicate today. This gap is now protected by the village gates, overseen by guard towers staffed with shinobi at all times. These men and women are constantly on alert for attempts at trespass or unlawful egress.
This is the village gates! You must post here to enter or leave Kumogakure.

Appearing next to the flag, Gin was decked out in his finest faux-Kage robes and hat. Looking very much like Umashi, he smiled in the direction of where Maru was and beckoned him to come closer. "Come now, we haven't got all day!" Hurriedly motioning Maru , or what was left of Maru, towards him, he then snapped his fingers and the sound of the snap echoed throughout the whole reality that Maru was experiencing. Suddenly Gin wasn't standing around but he was sitting at a blackened wood desk with the flag waving in the wind behind him. On the rather large desk was a duffel bag stuffed to the brim and opposite it on the other side of the desk was a large sword. In the middle of the desk facing Maru was a large opened scrolled and facing Gin was an equally large scroll and a quill and ink set.

As soon as Maru would begin to make his way towards Gin, Gin would begin to speak. Even if he couldn't make out all of the words, certain key details would quickly take shape. The flag that seemed somewhat plain and merely a red cloud on black flag would reveal itself to be a red cloud made of many red embers. Was it symbolic of the ties between Konoha and Kumo, or was it more speaking to the strange self imposed exile of the former Hokage in Kumo? The truth of which probably wouldn't be told to Maru immediately but the symbolism was there. Moving closer Maru would see as well that the large sword actually had a hilt built very much from the handle of a gun of some sort. When Maru finally stood before Gin, if he just managed to glance at the open scroll before him he'd notice a few key things, namely that it was a passport of sorts, but one addressed to a certain Yamamoto Yamaru of Iwagakure. There would be questions, sure, but when Maru eventually stopped at Gin's desk, the Tsukumogami would lean back in his chair and smile.

As Maru traveled through this weird reality he saw the flag, he tilted his head as he gazed at the flag that had a flowing red cloud. Next to the flag he saw Gin, his voice was pretty low sounding on this plane of reality but he could hear the Tsukumogami telling him to follow him and Maru did just that. A lot of questions flooding into the young mercenary's mind, namely what in the world happened to him and why was he on this side of reality. He probably would've asked, but then he saw the black wooden desk that had that flag flowing beside him. On the desk was a duffle bag, an open scroll and what caught his eye was the rather large blade on the opposite side of the desk. The weapon that was sitting on the opposite end of the table was what caught Maru's attention. Probably because at the hilt of the weapon it looked similar to that of a revolver, it has the chamber and trigger. It is a pretty unique looking weapon.

After he stepped closer, to examine the weapon he looked down to glance at the open scroll that laid on the table. A passport for someone named Yamamoto Yamaru from Iwagakure, it seemed that Tsukumogami had pretty much opened the floor to any questions that Maru may had. “So… like is this stuff for this Yamaru guy or what? Also how much is he selling that gun for?”He couldn't help but take another look at the weapon again, raising his hand to rub his chin. Truth be told Maru always had a talent for creating weapons, he even once created a blade that looked like a key that rivaled a certain Uchiha girl who had it in for him. But this was his first time seeing a… GunBlade!

Smirking, Gin pointed to the flag above as he leaned back in his chair. "Knowledge is power . . . and the wonderful thing about that power is that you can topple entire governments with it. Of course that makes it dangerous to hold such secrets but with just a clever use of what's already present in the world around us, we can work miracles. Something as simple as a longer wavelength in the electromagnetic spectrum can enable information to be transported across vast differences, all with only a touch of a button." Leaning up in the seat, Gin decided to answer Maru's question as he waved his hand over all of the things before him. "All of this can be yours if you like, the weapon, the gear, the passport papers with a new life . . . all if you'll swear loyalty to Umashi. Seems a fair bargain from what I can gather." Changing his expression to one of indifference, he shrugged and threw the proverbial ball in Maru's court.

"The fact of the matter is that you're a wanted man whether you like it or not. Konoha exiled you and as little sense as it would make for them to give chase after they willingly let you go, I wouldn't hold my breath on the basis of them not changing their minds. Still yet, there's your stunts and the like in other countries. To be blunt, your reputation proceeds you and unless you change up the narrative, you'll be mercilessly hunted and killed." As he spoke, Gin emphatically used his hands as he spoke in order to provide the various scenarios and possible outcomes of this day. "The choice is yours though. You can continue to be the lone wolf roaming the land with no one to watch your six or you can be the agent for hire, occasionally answering to the man with the master plan. One choice leads to a sure death as an anecdote in someones dusty tome, the other leads to becoming a legend like none ever told." Somewhat resting his case, he looked to the ink and quill on his desk and muttered, "It's dangerous to go alone . . "

As Gin begun to speak, most of what he said about knowledge was kinda hard to follow. Most of what he got from it is that was that knowledge, about certain things, could topple governments and how some secrets are dangerous to be held. But what instantly caught his attention was that all this stuff could be his. The weapon, the duffle bag, the passport with a new life which almost seemed like a dream come true…. That was if he swore loyalty to Umashi. Of course, this would mean that he wouldn't be able to simply act however he wanted and his light hearted robbery hobby would probably need to stop but of course it was obvious that he couldn't hide that he was wanted in Konoha. Although he was banned from Konoha and they don't have a solid reason to hunt him but the fact of the matter is that they really don't like him much there and if they caught him anywhere around they would probably kill him…. And knowing how they swarmed him the last time, he probably won't get a simple one on one fight.

So now he had a choice to either have a fresh start, no bounty on his head without having to worry about any leaf filth coming after him or he could choose the mercenary life and be pursued until he would stay dead with the constant denial and rejection because he is a criminal. Maru looked at the quill, pulling his collar. “Well, a fresh start doesn't come to often. I mean, it's better than the options I already had.” Of course, he didn't go into detail about those options but needles to say that his plan B wasn't great long term. That plan being becoming an immortal through the darkness at the cost of his memories, emotions, and his heart to only bring about death and destruction. He would be pretty much a shadow of his former self on a self destructive, genocidal path that would've ended up with him being repeatedly killed or sealed away. Not the greatest plan in the world but he was at least open to other options before he went on that route.

He most likely made his decision when Gin first laid out his options, it wasn't hard to persuade Maru into something being a pretty good idea so he shrugged. “Alright deal. I guess a new life wouldn't be so bad right?” he nodded. With that he took the quill then signed his name on his new passport, taking the duffle bag filled with his gear in one hand to told the rather heavy bag over his shoulder before reaching out to take the GunBlade into his hand. It was a bit heavier than it looks, but Maru managed. Testing it out by spinning it around in his hand before holding it over his shoulder, for some reason when he got the handling the blade it almost felt lighter as if it was making it feel as light as a feather when Maru grasp the weapon. “Gotta hand it to the person who made this, it's pretty light once you get use to it.”

Clapping his hands together, Gin looked at scroll that was before him and suddenly it began to fill with information about the newly reborn Yamaru of the Yamamoto. There were perks to Umashi having worn many hats in his lifetime. When coupled with the perfect mimicry of the Tsukumogami , suddenly something as elusive as a forged document looked better than the real thing . . . though, was it a forgery if the said signer was actually in on it? Gin wouldn't worry about the details. The goal was to get Maru funding and Maru now had funding, that and a new lease on life. "You'll be surprised at how well we Tsukumogami can make a fine weapon. I'll say this though . . . because you're probably about to be whisked away." Standing and walking from behind the desk, the desk and indeed the things that weren't Maru's would disappear from around them as all that remained was the flag and now, the view of a large and expansive snow capped mountain range.

"Umashi kinda purified your body with a spiritual fire . . . so your hearts and the like are pretty much the only clear remains. Your weapon is now like your heart, of sorts. Don't lose it, but also don't be surprised when you look in the mirror. That whole spiritual fire stuff can sometimes leave a nasty scar. Nothing that a good mask won't cover up but . . . ya know . . ."

Trailing off as he and Maru were suddenly standing on that snow covered mountain that they had just momentarily been looking at, In the distance was Kumogakure, more than a number of miles away further up the mountain. Slapping Maru on the back, Gin grinned as he once again donned a mask of his own. "Welcome to Yomigakure and indeed the great Yamamoto clan! Don't forget to name your weapon and be on the lookout for your next mission. Travel well my brother!" And with that said Gin would leave Maru to his whims. Hopefully Maru would walk a more straight and narrow path and not create so much trouble for himself or others. Umashi had been lenient yet once more, and with that leniency had come many more note worthy perks. Whereas some would have cast Maru aside and indeed killed him outright, Umashi had taken a gamble by doing the complete opposite and attempting to right the wrongs of the past. Only Maru could prove if this was indeed the correct choice to make, but Umashi had faith and with a little faith, the greatest stories could be told.

Now that the passport had been signed and the gear was taken. Maru looked around to see the world around him beginning to disappear from around him. “Hn… guess its times to go back living again. Guess my hearts weren't destroyed.” and they weren't destroyed, all four of his hearts are actually sealed within his new weapon kinda similar to how he made one of his old bodies into a sword, only this weapon seemed a bit different. He would probably have time test the weapon out once he got to the world of the living but then Gin told him because of the spiritual fire he could possibly have a nasty scar! It's a good thing he didn't mind wearing mask otherwise he would have to walk around with this little token of battle with him everywhere he went.

….

Maru took in a sharp inhale when he sat up as if he just came up from water, he touched his face to make sure that he could feel that he was okay looking down he saw that his GunBlade was attached to his waistband, the stuffed duffle bag at his side. It took Maru a while to realize that he was alive again before he was slapped on the back by Gin who welcomed him into some kind of new clan. Maru going into his gear pulled out a good enough looking mask for now and put it over his face. Kicking up, he felt like his old self again. “Thanks, if he needs me he would probably see me around here. Besides I got a few improvements on my new weapon I have to make, and I think I know exactly how to do it..” of course, in order to do that he needed tinker with his newfounded weapon so he could master it. Plus there was a lot of things he could add onto his new weapon then learn a few things to make sure he was using his GunBlade in the most effective way.

It had his hearts, which would probably mean it would be effective to keep it as a range weapon, namely to shoot projectiles. Little did Maru knew… this weapons would seem to have a mind of its own and it maybe the strongest weapon that he has wielded since using a puppet that can manipulate the lower levels of time. This was probably Maru's second chance at becoming more than a lone wolf bounty hunter, perhaps fame and fortune with a pretty strong weapon in his grasp. Thanks to his fake death, news would probably travel of his demise across the counties. However, Maru's story was far from over… or at least that was what he believed.
