This was rather odd, usually at this point in his hungry state, that he was uncontrolled, and tried to kill and everything around him. Yet, oddly this time, he had managed to stop from stabbing the tigress child in the throat. He managed to wonder why, but he let his muscles relax. He listened as the water child spoke, and waded out of the river. But his eyes stayed on the Byakko, even then he wasn't really even looking that the child. His eyes stared farther out, into space as some people would say. When Kawatarou climbed onto land and helped up her up, Itazura just let himself fall backwards. Forcing himself to retract his six inch claws.
In response to the Kappa helping her up, she run behind him, using him as cover from the kamaitachi to had almost killed her in a matter of seconds. Gripping the green clothes of the water child, with her tiger claws, ripping the soaked clothes slightly. Though the dazed yokai didn't really react, besides looking behind him at the girl. Her brown hair was fluffy, trying to make herself look bigger, and her pink colored eyes were glaring intensely at the wind mage. Her tiger ears laid flat against her hair, and from her throat she released a mixture of a growl and a hiss. Her striped tail whipped back and forth.
His eyes slowly faded back into it's usual hazel color, he gripped the dirt and grass, some sliding underneath his fingernails. Letting out a sigh he let out a nervous laughter, lifting his hand which was dirtied with soil and blood, and scratched the back of his neck. "Sorry 'bout that"
he said with more embarrassed laughter afterwards. He pushed himself up off of the ground, his bare feet once again standing on the grass. As he stood to his feet, the Henge child hissed and growled louder. And actually spat a couple times at him, but it didn't really get close to hitting him. It all either got on her friend's face or on the grass. Though he smiled, acting as if the situation didn't really faze him, he grabbed at his arm in a nervous manner. As if trying to cover himself, and his eyes clearly showed his shame. After one hundred years and he still doesn't have full control of himself and his hunger. It angered the yokai, and now his guildmaster knew, he just hoped she wasn't the type to overreact about situations like this. Hoping that she would at least understand a little bit, I mean she was a yokai also. So she probably experience things like he did, maybe not excessive hunger. But perhaps a thirst for blood?
He shook away the thoughts, casually stepping backwards away from the two yokai friends and the tanuki. The boy was tempted to run off, get a meal so he was no longer starving, and so he wouldn't eat any of the yokai around him. He bit his lip, his eyes flickering between hazel and blood red again. He glanced around, then he stopped walking backwards when he was a safe distance away from the three of them. Itazura actually feeling shame for once, didn't want to lose control again. Probably feeling shame about this because it connected to something that happened to him a while ago. Trying to eat his own friend, Seika, well not that she even considered a horrible itachi such as himself, as her friend. She was right who would want to be friends with him? He was the stereotypical itachi, a thief, uncontrolled cannibal, antisocial and sociopathic. Are any of those good qualities? He thought not."Leave Kawatarou and Tora alone!"
the tiger girl finally spoke, her tone harsh and slightly frightened. Then again I don't blame her, who wouldn't be frightened after almost getting killed a a yokai stronger than herself. Itazura guess that she spoke in third person, this Tora, being herself. And at the mention of the name, the kappa appeared to remember something. A thoughtful look on his pale and drowsy expression "Tora"
he muttered under his breath. Then a slight 'oh' escaped his lips, actually remembering something for once in his forgetful brain. The weasel put the pieces together, guessing this is one of his friends, and by how she acted, she was a very hyperactive child. So if Kawatarou fell asleep, or was daydreaming, she probably ran off to mess with people. Then again what does he know, it was just an accusation of course.
Slowly the kappa spoke to the tiger child "Hey, Tora, wanna go play....... or something...... I don't know"
waiting for the water child to finish before dropping her previously furious attitude and fear. Her tail stopped whipping around, and swayed happily. Her ears perked back up and her hair settled down "You remember me?!"
she said excitedly, not a typical thing you say to your friends, then again, he shouldn't say anything considering he doesn't really have friends. Plus he could've just been pretending to remember her, that's what he would do if he forgot somebody, but then again this was a kappa. Doesn't have to much energy to do anything, so probably doesn't think about lying. He pondered her question slowly and nodded in reply. She then laughed giddily and skipped around him before grabbing his hands and yanking him along. "Hey! Let's go over there!"
she shouted, making his eggshell rattle slightly. Though he didn't get to reply before he was dragged into the forest.
Watching with color changing eyes, as they ran off, more like Tora was dragging him along. Then his gaze shifted to the tanuki, standing a few yards away from himself, just left to watch the scenes roll out before her as he just did. Making eye contact with her for only a moment before ripping his gaze away, not wanting her to see his thoughts through his hazel optics. Placing his hands on the back of his head, leaning his head into them he turned around. Looking at the scenery and facing away from Izayuki he spoke "Sooo, time to go back home now~?"
he asked with a slight chuckle, dropping his hands back to his sides and pushing them into his pant's pockets.W o r d C o u n t:
