Crowds of people blocked Mashyuu and Itsu from getting to close to the center of the Rose Garden, apparently they all wanted to see the beautiful flowers. As Mashyuu stopped he slung his hammer down and let it rest on the ground, hands off the shaft, deciding that the heavy weapon might not be the best for a time like this, flowers were light and nimble. If he had to fight a Wizard who used flowers it could really cause him some problems. Besides he had never seen a flower mage and had no idea if that was based on wind magic or earth magic. Hell it could have been something else completely for all Mashyuu knew. Itsu on the other hand stopped at Mashyuu's side and looked up into the sky to see the flowers raining down and landing one atop the other like a heavy snow. "Oh these are beautiful. Are you sure the job wanted us to look into why the are falling and put a stop to it?" she asked with sorrow in her beautiful big eyes. Mashyuu simply rolled his while crossing his arms over his chest and nodding up and down. "Yup, and we are waiting for someone named Itori. I think I worked with her before I died, when I saw her name I had a few flash backs but I won't know for sure until I make contact with her and at least see her do something that would jog my memory." Mashyuu explained while scanning the area. "Lots of innocent people here, I don't want them to get caught in any fight that might break out. This could be a simple curse that has the garden in it's thrall but from what I remember there is usually someone behind these sorts of things." Mashyuu complained. With a shrug he glanced behind him to make sure that nobody was to close and hoisted his hammer up, letting the magic surge through him for better or worse and slowly started to lumber through the crowd.
"If your face and body changed how will Itori know it's you?" Itsu asked as the pair made their way through the sea of people. "Well, I have the same eyes, I bet my magical aura is the same, if not stronger, and I still have my mark on the same part of my body, it's why I'm wearing the open vest. So that she can see the mark on my chest." He explained while tugging at the white and orange vest that had no sleeves and exposed his body aside from a enough fabric to button the vest up if he needed to.
At last the pair stopped at the metal gate to the Rose Garden where he noticed that the bars were wrapped in vines. "Well that could be a problem. I don't know if maybe this is part of the curse or if these have always been here. We should really wait for Itoi before we proceed with the job." Mashyuu reasoned. He placed his back to the gate and leaned against it, a yawn escaping his mouth while he sighed and looked up into the night sky. Admittedly the raining pink and red petals did strike quite the image in his mind, reminding him of a simpler time when he was courting Kanix and even Itsu. It was strange how women seemed to all like flowers to some extent. Even the ones that acted like they didn't seemed to actually like them a little. His attention was pulled though when he felt a gentle weight on his massive arm and looked to see Itsu snuggling up to him and looking up to the sky as well. "Reminds me of being a kid, sneaking into the forest and picking flowers. Before we both left home and before we were dead." Itsu chimed in, making Mashyuu blush a little and nod silently.
"Yeah... it's a real shame this is a curse and might end up really hurting someone if we don't put a stop to it. Think about how bad this could get if they never stop falling to the ground. This might one day cover the entire area. How bad would that be if this was only the first place that the flowers started to fall."
