PostSubject: The Town of Houru   Tue Aug 24, 2010 12:03 am

Taiyou walked through the streets of this crowded town. To many faces to remember. It was early, the sun wasn't up yet. He had a bag of tea reagents, and a Erhu on his back. The erhu, also known as the Chinese fiddle, is a two-stringed instrument played with a bow. It consists of a long, thin neck with tuning pegs at the top and a resonated at the base. This was Taiyou's favorite instrument, it made a very soothing sound that fit with him.

Taiyou walk out the gates of the town and sat on a near by hill and leaned against a tree facing the sun as it rose. He pulled the Erhu and started to play, Leaves from the vine. Falling so slowly. Like fragile, tiny shells, drifting in the foam. Little soldier boy, come marching home. Brave soldier boy, comes marching home. Those leaves did grow, from Branches overgrown

Boredom. It was easier to just live with it rather than try and cure it. Well that's what Kijuuki theorized. She took deep, steady breaths while she walked around Houru. She was there for rest. She had taken the time to stay and sleep the night away at a local inn. With her bag packed, it being slim and filled with only a few necessities, she walked toward the gate to take her leave. She was heading in no real direction, but it was her goal to make at least one new friend. She took a slow, steady breath and allowed her lungs to expand while she exhaled. Her eyes flicked gently around, aurulent irises catching the sun rise just right. It made them gleam. They looked like real pieces of gold. With a small smile curving her lips, she let her planet's star fill her face with warmth. She tilted her head back, her hair falling behind of her shoulders.

She moved her hands up and held the straps of her bag, her strides lazy, yet relaxed. She was wearing a casual yukata, the skirt style kimono covering her in all the right places. Her feet were tucked into a pair of comfortable zori. As soon as she passed through the gate, she couldn't help but pick up the sound of an Erhu. It was... lovely. She looked around curiously until she found the lone figure that took their own precious time to play the sweet song.

Kijuuki was normally shy, but instead, she took a few steps closer and just listened. She kept her form somewhat hidden, but she was sure the conductor of such a sound would notice her eventually. She stuck out like a sore thumb; her beauty was radiant.

It wasn't long before Taiyou's music attracted Huo, not only were they friends but Huo also enjoyed the musical stylings that the two put together. Huo had a set of bongos hanging over his shoulders, they hung there loosely held by a abnormally thick leather strap. "Those leaves did grow, from branches overgrown." Huo sang in perfect harmony with Taiyou as he sat down lightly tapping the bongos as he slung them around to the front of his body. Huo sat on the ground next to Taiyou as he rapped his fingers over the cured leather that was stretched across the hollow wood.

Huo's eyes wandered, they instantly caught the woman that stood near, but Huo paid little attention to her, such carnal desires no longer plagued his thoughts. "Little soldier boy Come marching home Brave soldier boy Comes marching home" Huo sang as his eyes continued to drift over the landscape, the rolling hills the sun kissed land, that was the real beauty, it was everlasting it never faded.

As Taiyou and Huo finished there song he gazed at the rising sun. Taiyou sat there under the tall tree that stretched over them. The sunrise in the distance was Taiyou's favorite thing about waking up early.
Taiyou was leaned against the tree in a Sun Warrior uniform. They were still in earth nation territory so there was no reason to hide the fact his was fire nation. He kinda enjoyed people knowing he was a fire bender. Less people talked to him, and less people got in his way. Taiyou's hair was in top knot, and his red hair shined in the sun. He had one arm out of his Gi, and the other sleeve was rolled up. His tattoo's start with a arrow pointing at his palm then split into two stripes that circled back up arms. They went from his shoulder blade down his chest, and split into three strips this time, only this time they all flew into a circle around the center of his stomach. The tattoo's on his other arm came into the circle making a full circle. When he got these tattoo's the sun warriors told him they represented that he was 'Taiyou, The Patient'. Taiyou's white headband with a sun warriors symbol on the left side and the extra cloth hanging off the right. He was sitting there for awhile, sweat ran down his face.
When Kijuuki caught the corner he turned to her. "Are you enjoying the show?" Taiyou said with a sarcastic smirk on his face.

Kijuuki had hoped to keep herself out of mind's eye from the, not only one, but two men that played their music together. She nearly blushed when one of them took notice to her. She shook her head lightly and stepped from behind of the tree slowly, allowing her hair to fan across her forehead. She tilted her chin forward, her head tipping back a bit so she could look up toward the two.

They had been perched upon a hill, her form standing a bit lower, so of course she would have to look up. She felt so silly, though. She licked over her lips and took a slow, but brave, step forward. She had enjoyed their performance, a lot. It was very soothing to start her morning with some live entertainment, even though it was just for their fun and not for her pleasure. She moved a hand up and brushed a long piece of hair from her bangs to the right side of her face.

"Yes," she said in reply to his simple question as to whether or not she enjoyed it. She more-so loved it. She couldn't help but smile while she stood away from them. She was still trying to shy from them, but didn't want to at the same time. They got the best view of the sunrise.. and she didn't want to miss it. She took a daring set of foot falls forward, carried herself to the top, and took a deep breath. The cool, yet sweet, morning hair filling her lungs along with the gorgeous view and musical entertainment just made her day wonderful.

She only wished things like this could happen every day...

Huo smiled and shook his head, the more time that went by the more people surprised him. His smile faded as he pondered Such bliss in a time of pure hatred he thought to himself thinking of the actions of each person sitting on the hill. Huo placed his bongos to the side and rested his forearm on his kneecap and his chin on his forearm.

Huo's eyes gleamed as the sun crept farther over the horizon. "Well something has to brighten up life in these dark times." he said without moving his eyes to her, his gaze stayed locked on the landscape.

"What better way than singing?" he asked as the grin returned to his face.

Taiyou sat the Erhu in front of him. With his hands free he cracked his knuckles. Cracking all the joints in his his hand Taiyou then swung the Erhu on his back, and stood up. "How about drinking tea, and watching the sunrise?" He said bending over to grab his bag. Taiyou pulled out his tea pot, and set it on the ground in front of him. He looked up at the tree branches over him. Taiyou grabbed the lowest branch and broke it off. He broke the branch against his knee. Taiyou snapped the branch in to smaller pieces and stacked them in a circle. After placing the pot over the branches, he snapped his finger and created a small fire above his finger. He lowered his hand to the branches to start a small fire.

Taiyou looked over his shoulder back at the girl after starting the fire. "Would you like to join us, and watch the rest of the sunrise stranger?"

Kijuuki nodded gently and let herself take a few more steps toward the two gentlemen. "M'hmn," she muttered in response to Taiyou's question. "The sunrise is brilliant," she smiled gently and let herself lower onto her rump next to the small fire that was made. Fire benders? She thought to herself while she blinked gently. Those golden hued irises were hidden for a few moments before she grasped the situation. Enemies. She was an Air Nomad.. She was on a quest to find the lost Avatar. Kijuuki had placed the quest upon herself to venture out to find him, but that didn't matter. Neither of these two would need to know or anything.

"Tea sounds lovely, thank you," she smiled again and moved a hand through her dark brown tresses. She allowed her fingers to touch and grope at the dyed gold parts of her hair. She liked being different, and this part of her made her extraordinarily different. "So.. was this a coincidence of meeting you? Or.. do you both come out here in the morning?" She got a bit brave and spoke up to them, considering she was always a tiny bit curious.

"No." Huo said with a grin as he shook his head. "Me and Taiyou have no real set location." Huo said with his eyes fixated on the sunrise. Huo was less likely to be social then Taiyou, he was the less trusting of the group, but Taiyou being like that was needed, both personalities had there advantages. "Though there are a few places we enjoy to visit every now and then." Huo spoke to the girl but he tried not to reveal too much.

Taiyou lost focus while starring out at the sun. He could see the ocean and the horizon from this hill. Taiyou took a deep breath, then exhaled steam from his nose. The sun gave him power, wonderful power that made even the strongest benders cower in fear. Was this good or bad though? Taiyou was a strong bender, but didn't want to be feared by people. Fire was destruction to the human eye, but to Taiyou it was protection. Depending on how you use it, Taiyou was taught by the Sun Warriors and that was only half of it. When every Taiyou would hear stories of water bending he knew that he would create his own technique using there style of combat. Reverse then attack, that was the water bending way, rather than just attack like the average fire bender. Taiyou regained focus then spoke "We don't stay in one place for to long."

The woman would cant her head, nodding toward them both. "Lovely," she stated simply, pulling her cup of tea up to sip it's contents. Despite herself being on thin ground, she did not care. Enemies or no, they were being kind to her. Maybe they had some respect for her just because of her sex... Maybe it was her looks. She hadn't a care of it all, she was just surprised that she actually ran into two legitimately strong fire benders. She smiled toward them both and rose with the sun that settled above the eastern horizon. "Arigatou," she spoke gently, bowing. "Gomenasai," she stated briefly, sighing. "I must take my leave... I have things to do.. Mayhaps we'll cross one another's paths soon enough, hmn?" she left the question open to the gentle winds and followed the breeze down the sloping hill and back to the main path.

She wanted to search for the avatar; she would be his savior.

She would go down into history.
