They were lost.
The old spirit glanced down to the churring water below him while his 'Mistress' (he often used that term loosely) absently scratched her head. "Any particular ideas on where we are to go?"
"HAHAHAHA! OF COURSE! Um. Uh." She pauses, then started giggling again. "Maybe we should go that way!"
He simply sighed. She was water-melding again without realizing it, apparently. "Next time, Mizu-chan, do not ask directions from perverted toad hermits that are more interested in your garters."
My submission for the Create a Nin
contest. Here's her description.
This scatterbrained female ninja is very short and has a wasp-waisted build. Her hooded eyes are emerald. She has curly, shoulder-length, mauve hair worn in a precise style. Her outfits are sexy and include a set of shinguards. Her preferred weapon is a sword (which has the soul of a great ninja inside of it). She is skilled in impersonation and breakfall. She can pass through and merge with water.
I'll refrain from artistic commentary, for it will run along the lines of OMG THIS SUCKS, but way more articulate.
