I just need the Bear Minimum [Contract Search]

Mon Apr 09, 2018 10:12 am

[Using the guaranteed Contract of your choice card which can be found purchased in my training Here Would like your finest Bear contract please!)

"I'm...starting...to...think...that...old woman...lied...to me..." Riyota panted as he continued lugging the huge bag of gods-know-what on his back. He had been asking around the previous day on advice for summoning a contract creature and a kindly old Lady swiftly invited him in for tea and gave him helpful tips on methods to "Strengthen his Spirit" and "Prove himself Worthy." At this point he began to think she just enjoyed seeing people carry heavy things through the desert. He had refused to utilise his curse seal for a burst of strength as he considered it to be cheating and perhaps the spirits would look unfavourably towards someone who utilised dark energies to further their pursuits. However with his shirt wrapped around his forehead to collect sweat and the black intricate pattern plainly on his chest he was seriously considering it as an option. For his own safety he had enhanced the strength of his bones and joints with his Kaguya DNA in order to avoid straining or damaging them, which he assumed was the only thing making this trek semi-bearable.

Bearing in mind that he was under the ever scornful gaze of the desert sun he decided now would be an acceptable time to take a break. Setting down the humongous heavy sack onto the floor he leant against it and took a long gulp of water. The still air of the desert appearing warped and shimmering in the scorching haze. Turning his gaze to the sun he sighed and raised a middle finger defiantly. "I try not to hate too many things...but man...I really hate you!" He shouted to no-one in particular, though if the sun could understand him, he was sure it would be very offended. The young shinobi stretched and focused his mind inwards as he felt the cells of his skin burn up and die from the wrath of the desert sun, luckily, it was quite impossible for him to burn as the cells were almost immediately repaired and regrown only to die again and repeat the process.

Leaning his head against the bag he sighed again, looking it up and down. "I absolutely just carried this across the desert for no reason didn't I..." He slowly let his body slide down sideways as he lay down face first into the hot sand. If anyone was nearby they would hear a muffled, frustrated cry into the ground. Quickly he would rise, scattering sand everywhere he would stride away from the sack and then whip around and with a few quick handseals force it to combust, scattering the contents in all different directions. "THAT WAS SO POINTLESS!" He would cry out in blatant frustration.

Pacing around the wreck site he would begin discussing with himself as his curse seal started to ever so slowly grow and snake over his skin. "So what is it then? Sacrifice?! There, boom, sack full of stuff, you can have it! Blood ritual? I don't bleed easy but I can try! Maybe if you guys left some sort of instructions on how to talk to you I would be making more progress!" He screamed into the empty space around him. After a few moments he noticed the growing mark and quickly he took a few deep breaths in and out, calming himself and feeling it slowly recede. He let himself collapse backwards onto the sand, his brown hair mixing with the particles. With another sigh, he softly spoke to no-one.

"My soul has no place in it for a god, they were never there when I needed them. All I'm asking is for one of you to hear me out..." He paused for a moment, just in case any response came. "I need some help to bring down Akkuma, and to remove the dark stain he's let the Miroku become...I can't do it alone, as much as I pretend and try to convince myself otherwise. As it stands he will annihilate me. I need your help and I need it now, because give me a couple of years and I'll bearly have the strength to stand..." And so he lay in the unforgiving wastes of the expanse, hoping for an answer to his call.

Some could say that the combination of heat, dehydration, and the sun's rays in the desert could be enough probably cause for hallucination. But what about the times when the impossible is actually a thing? What happens when the thing you can't seem to trust your eyes with spots something your mind can't seem to process. As Riyota screamed in the distance, possible at some god forsaken being in the sky, a rare sight to behold indeed took place near him. In the distance, there was a large being slowly trekking forward, moving ever more closely to Riyota. It was a large figure that walked on all fours. From a distance one may speculate that it was a turtle or a dry scaled lizard or hard shelled rodent but the creature seemed far too large for that.

As it moved closer, more of it's appearance would become clear. It appeared to be covered in a thick layer of rock. It's fur was lit aflame, glowing brightly with yellow, orange, and red embers that escaped and flailed against the rocky conglomerate that made up it's body. The creature appeared to be a bear, encased in rock and fire. It moved slowly, taking it's time. With each step of it's powerful paws, the sand beneath it turned to glass instantly from the sheer heat the bear generated from it's flames. A trail of glass paw prints created a trail behind him, but were quickly blown away by the wind and covered with more sand. As the bear came upon Riyota, it tilted it's head in curiosity. It would still be a small distance away, facing his head as he lay in the sand, still out of eyesight. Was this human talking to the sand? The sky? The bear saw nobody else around. The bear listened to the speech for a little while, the human still unaware that the bear had even approached him from behind. The bear did not know what an Akkuma was or why the human needed help but the bear had time, and he did just stumble upon him. It did not know why it was called when certain signatures drew him to certain people, but there was always some special interaction with each one it was drawn to. The bear could not leave until it had explored what made this human special to it, and why it had drawn him here. The first step though, required the bear to make it's presence known.

The bear stood up on it's hind legs, towering tall and proud. It let out a loud roar aimed down at Riyota, small flames escaping it's giant maw. The bear glowed a bright happy orance, the rocks making small cracking noises as the bear sparked to life. Riyota wanted a sign that he was heard, this was definitely going to indicate he got somethings attention.

As Riyota wiped away a few droplets of sweat from his brow and sat there in a state of frustration. His cursed seal threatening to snake its way up his chest a cacophonous roar echoed out behind him, causing him to jolt up and tumble backwards, too startled to even scream. Quite the visage lay in front of him. An ursine entity, similar in shape to beings he had seen Akkuma summon the past but this one was covered head to toe in rock and magma. Its paws seared the desert sand, transforming it under the immense heat this creature must produce. Riyota could hardly believe his eyes, he closed them for a few seconds and shook his head, only to open them back up and see the same thing again. It seemed this creature was as real as it was going to get. Realising his rather unflattering position currently, and the fact that he hadn't even considered preparing for an attack the young Shinobi scrambled to his feet. It didn't seem like the creature wanted to hurt him. In fact it gave off quite a bright, warm glow. If Riyota was reading it correctly.

Once he was on his feet his eyes began exploring the interesting texture of the creature in front of him. The artisan inside Riyota was endlessly fascinated by the genetic make-up of the being in front of him. He took a deep breath and decided to risk stepping closer, using his own affinity with fire to protect him from the worst of the heat, though he could definitely still feel it. "You are just...fantastic." He said with great admiration in his voice, although he probably didn't intend to say it out loud. He reached out to touch it but quickly pulled his hand back, not sure how the creature would react to such an intrusion.

He scampered around the side to look at it face to face once more. "U-uh...did you, hear me c-calling?" He asked nervously, looking into the bear's eyes for any signs of intelligence or understanding. "I-if so...could I ask your name?" Even if this thing hadn't appeared to help him. It still held endless fascination for him, so even if it wanted to just sit and chat he would do so happily.

As Riyota scrambled to his feet, the bear lowered again to all fours. It calmly stared, small flames flickering around it's vibrant glowing yellow eyes. As Riyota reached out with his hand, even though he had not touched the bear, it hardened and flinched away, making a small noise at the boy. The bear would not be touched. Well, not by conventional means anyway. However, that did not exactly mean that the bear could not touch him. It's ember filled fur seemed to blaze to life as it was complimented on it's form. The bear thumped it's paws in the sand. It gave a low nod when asked if it had heard the boy calling. The bear raised one of it's giant paws, the pads of his foot started glowing the color of white hot iron. The bear moved it's paw closer to the boy, waiting to see what he would do. Should the boy allow him to touch him, the bear would place the paw right over Riyota's chest, a small glow spreading around the paw, though no pain would come. It would be a warm, welcoming feeling, a flame that Riyota would be able to feel course all through his body. As the bear pulled it's paw away, the pads would leave a residual glowing mark on Riyota's chest. The bear made another noise, but now it would be one that Riyota could understand. "It is not often I wish to converse with others. That mark will allow you to understand me. As I'm sure you can tell, I am not the average bear. But I can blend in well enough when I want to." The bear displayed this by cooling his fur. The flames died down, exposing rich brown fur, eyes that were dark black, and the lava rocks hidden well beneath it all. From a distance, one would not suspect this was more than an average black bear of sorts."I do not know why I was called here, but I go where the world tells me to go. My name is Roki. Why do you suppose has fate entwined us together?"

The wind picked up around them, scattering sand into the air around them. Suddenly the bear raised it's nose high, it's ears slightly twitching back and forth as if listening very closely to something. "I sense our conversation will not be long....something is coming. Do you feel it?" There was a static that filled the air, one that could make your hair stand on edge. Roki's fur blazed back to it's full burning brilliance, his stance shifting to stand tall once more. In the horizon a small dust cloud could be seen. It appeared something was approaching rapidly. "Any suggestions?" Impending doom seemed to be on them, and yet the bear just waited patiently.
