Setting: 1st alley of Rukongai
Summary: Kabuto on assignment to gather information.

( )
Kabuto sat upon the roof of a building within the 1st alley of Rukongai. He watched the gate which separated Rukongai from Seireitei--what he learned these places were called. While he waited, Kabuto rested his chin upon his palm. He heard the shuffle of small footfalls climbing a ladder behind him. A small smirk curled over his lips before he spoke.

"So, were you good? Did you get me the item I asked for?" A young boy walked up next to Kabuto, and held out a small clay container, sealed with oil-paper and twine. Kabuto took the container and set it down next to the place he sat. "Wonderful, wonderful. Now, I'll keep my end of the promise." Kabuto reached past the cuff of his own outfit, and removed the small bundle of candy stars he'd stolen from the boy to begin with.

But first, Kabuto untied the bundle of candy and had a small piece for himself. He didn't have much of an appreciation for sweet things, but just to spite the boy... "I want you to tell me what you know about shinigami." He listened to the boy for about as long as the answers were original. Soon enough, the candy was returned with the boy.

"Go on now, and don't you tell your guardians you spoke with me." Kabuto watched the boy walk off from the corner of his vision. He spoke up a bit to add in, "Don't forget to watch out for snakes." His attention moved back toward that shining white wall. Perhaps he should pick out another person to speak to...

Kurotsuchi Nemu had been told by her father to look for one of the most submissive or weak one. So far, she had found none that would be suiting. In Rukongai, however, it was possible that there were some that were hiding from the shinigami in Seiretei.

That was why the vice captain of the eleventh division was exitting Seiretei through the gate that had been opened for her by the gate keeper. Her vice-captain badge was tied to her right arm to state her rank and she wore her normal shinigami clothing. Most of the people saw her walking near and immediately went back into their shelters- fear of shinigami was still present in Rukongai.

Holding her head high, she looked for any sign of irregular reiatsu or strange people as she walked.

Maybe a glint of light reflecting against his eyeglasses is enough to catch attention. Kabuto didn't act in an unusual way, he was inspecting the contents of the clay jar given to him. The contents looked and smelled like wild honey, which wasn't tainted with any substances added in to enhance flavor. This was good, since Kabuto didn't intend to use the wild honey for consumption.

Even if Kabuto was caught up with inspecting the item he'd bartered for, he didn't neglect to notice the shinigami. He considered going for cover, as to blend in with the rest of the residents.

Nemu suddenly sensed a strange reiatsu in the air. It was not like any of the shinigami's reiatsu- it could possibly be one of the intruders' strange reiatsu. She stopped suddenly, turning as she tried to pinpoint the location of the irregularity.

Her searching made her look at a figure sitting upon the roof of a building. Other than the reiatsu, he didn't seem very strange or abnormal. If it hadn't been for the reiatsu, she would had dismissed him as another part of Rukongai.

"Sir, could you please come down from the roof?" She asked, turning to look up at him. She wanted to get a closer look.

This was a discouraging situation. Kabuto didn't move at all, instead he just spoke from the rooftop. "Is it important? I'd rather not, I've become rather comfortable up here."
mustobeymayuri on August 21st, 2006 02:32 am (UTC)
Nemu was rather patient. She didn't want to have to use force with the person.

"It is important. I do not want to have to use force with you, sir." She said after a moment of considering her words- which were true. If he was one of the people who had been saying they were alive, he would have to be questioned before he would be brought to Mayuri.

"I'd rather not resort to force, now." Kabuto held the jar in one hand carefully, then let himself slip down from the rooftop. He landed upon both feet safely, and set the jar down next to his foot. "Now, what is so important?"
mustobeymayuri on August 21st, 2006 02:45 am (UTC)
Nemu was glad when the male slid down to talk with her. She thought for a second or two before carefully asking,

"Are you alive?" She wouldn't be surprised if he didn't answer this at first. It would seem like a very strange question, after all, especially to someone who lived in a world full of living things every day.
nehan_shouja on August 21st, 2006 02:53 am (UTC)
"To be honest, I'm not too sure." Kabuto wasn't about to give her a straight answer, let alone a truthful one. Perhaps he could play the stupid card for awhile. "What makes you think I am alive?"
mustobeymayuri on August 21st, 2006 03:01 am (UTC)
Nemu frowned slightly when the man did not give her a straight answer.

"According to my sources, there have been people appearing around Rukongai and Seireitei who all claim to be alive. We do not know where they came from. You might be one of them." Nemu explained.

"What do you mean by 'not too sure'?"
nehan_shouja on August 21st, 2006 03:12 am (UTC)
Kabuto lifted his shoulders to shrug. "Last I remember, I was walking to my place of work. I heard a loud sound behind me, and my memory cuts off from there. Then I find myself assigned to an alley here. I don't understand it at all." He took this story from what he'd overheard from various other patrons of Rukongai.
mustobeymayuri on August 21st, 2006 03:25 am (UTC)
Nemu's frown remained. That sounded like a usual death scene to her.

"Can you explain the fact that you have a rather strange reiatsu around you?" She asked. She honestly hoped that the man was not lieing. She did not want to test her father's patience by taking longer with this than she should.
nehan_shouja on August 21st, 2006 03:31 am (UTC)
Kabuto stared blankly. He looked down toward his hands and saw nothing. "Reiatsu? I have no idea what you're talking about. I don't think I've been here long."
mustobeymayuri on August 21st, 2006 04:03 am (UTC)
"Your spiritual energy. Everyone has it in this place... however, you also have a strange one that I cannot name. People have been appearing around here like you. The shinigami in Soul Society have been trying to find out what's going on." Nemu had to explain more things to this person. She patiently waited for an answer, folding her hands in front of her.
nehan_shouja on August 21st, 2006 04:23 am (UTC)
"Sorry, Miss. It's not something I can explain." Kabuto leaned over and picked up the clay jar he left by his foot. He let it rest within the nook of his elbow, hoping the contents won't leak beneath the seal. He had no idea where to get the water to wash out anything that stained clothing. "I never realized I was so... unusual."
mustobeymayuri on August 21st, 2006 04:58 am (UTC)
"I apologize if I'm confusing you." Nemu said truthfully. She considered her words carefully before asking,

"Could you come with me when I go back? I think my captain would be able to figure out what's happening better than I could." She unfolded her hands, hoping that he would say yes. She would not like to displease her father.
nehan_shouja on August 21st, 2006 05:26 am (UTC)
Kabuto frowned when he heard the offer. He assumed this meant he'd be held against his own will. On the flip side, it could be a great opportunity to learn more about Seireitei. "...Can I at least go back to tell a person where I'm going? I don't want to cause concern by disappearing all of a sudden." Another blatant lie upon lies, but he needed to buy some time.
mustobeymayuri on August 21st, 2006 05:55 am (UTC)
Nemu considered the question, then, with a quiet sigh, replied.

"How long would it take for you to tell this person?" She would not want to wait for too long. She would like to be back with her father, who had wanted her to find one of them.

Again, she honestly hoped the male was not lieing about this. Her father would hopefully be able to find something out, howeveer.
nehan_shouja on August 23rd, 2006 03:25 am (UTC)
"Shouldn't take too long at all." Kabuto figured he could get in touch with Orochimaru in another way, if he weren't present within the place he'd seen him last. "If I can't find them, I'll just leave a note."
