Getting away from the ritual cave, dray watched as his legs moved to wherever they wanted. Not that he could not control them afterall, they were his but why control them when he knew not where he was going.... He just left them to wander as if they had a mind of their own. As he walked, all that appeared before him, beside him and behind him were stones alone. Why there were so many stones, he wondered. Perhaps, he was in a world of stone, like such a thing ever existed.

Dray kept on walking without stopping. He did not feel tired at all. As he walked, he kept his eyes fixed onto he ground. He was sick of seeing all theses stones every where he fixed his eyes on. Perhaps, if he looked at the ground while he continued walking and raised it up at a later time, then he would see something different. With about thirty minutes of walking and looking to the ground gone, dray looked up but all there still was was stone. He sat on the floor and looked back for some seconds. He wondered if he had been walking at all. Still, all he saw behind him was stone and then he concluded, he was truly in the stone world. Perhaps, this was what people meant by life after death. When someone dies, they would be transferred to another world. His own fate was to be transferred to the world of stones.
Still on the floor, dray layed flat on his back and closed his eyes as he drifted away.

"Welcome to the world of stone, Zennyo Ryūō". The voice would say as dray would feel a tap against his chest. He would open his eyes to see what looked like a person before him. The vision would be blurry at first as dray would rub his face with the back of his right hand after which the view would become clear.
"How was the trip". The voice would ask again and dray would finally reply... "What trip are you referring to? Yyou mean me walking for like forever and seeing nothing but stones.....? Is that your own definition of a trip. If yes, the trip was bad." Dray replied the man who looked to be in his sixties. Even then, he had white beards all over his face, white eye brows and even white moustache together with the white hairs on his head. He was not like any human dray had ever met. He was old yet physically fit or were the white hairs just natural?
The man would just smirk at dray's reply... "Follow and you shall see the rest of those who have lived after death in the world of stone...." the man would say while turning away and disappearing in the corner.

For a second or two, dray would try to assimilate the elderly man's words.. "Follow me", he understood that perfectly well. "And you shall see the rest of those who have lived after death in the world of stone...." This was the part that was most confusing to him. First, the man had welcome him to the world of stone and then he had asked dray how the trip was and now, he was talking about life after death? Did this truly mean that dray was.........
He put his left hand over his mouth as he gasped.
He raplidly got up and shot after the old man.
Standing freely in the distance, dray would see the old man who was probably waiting for him..
"Come" the old man would motion to dray as dray would comply and walk closer. Directly beside the old man, "look" the man would say as he would point forward...
Dray would stare into the emptiness as nothing else but stone again would be seen.. "What is this supposed to mean?" Dray would ask the man patiently.
"What an elder would sit on the floor to see, a child would climb up the mountain and still wouldn't see it." The man would say and smile as he would stamp the staff that was in his right hand on the ground as suddenly, right in front of them, regular people would be visible......

Dray would wake up to reality figuring out that he had been dreaming and he was not exactly dead yet. He would stand on his feet and keep on walking again with hope that sooner or later, he would find somebody. Just this one person. He felt it, he knew it.

When members of the clan clinic where not on call or tending the inner gardens of the courtyard, they are out gathering herbs and roots for natural medicines. The clan tries not to get people hooked on the medicine pushed by doctors to keep people sick and addicted. They believe in using nature to the advantage of the patient and speed up the healing process while the drugs other doctors give out have just as much chance to make the sickness worse or even kill. So in order to keep the flow of herbal medicine and natural cures these runs are necessary to keep the store house full.

And today it was Harichimo out on his own for the first time to get the needed supplies. He had been out before with his mother and father on gathering runs but now that he was close on his way to becoming a chunin, he insisted he was able to do the task on his own. He had his jacket and nap sack with canteens and food rations for the trip. His hair tied back like he always had to reduce the heat his head was absorbing. He left his arms unbandaged as to not ruin a whole run of fresh bandages getting them dirty and soaked in sweat. It would be an all day trip to fill a couple of lock boxes with ingredient then he would rest wherever he ended up and return early in the morning. 

Harichimo had found the small outcrop of rocks where he could find cactus fruit, used in cures for treating burns and cuts ,and retrieve some water to refill canteens from a natural spring. He layed his nap sack down by the small pool of water and took out one of the lock boxes to be filled with the fruit. The cactus this year were not so fruit full, only bearing a couple hand fulls. But it would be better than nothing and there were still a couple more spots he could go on his route. But first he had to refill his canteens.

As he refilled the couple of empty ones in his bag he swear he could hear rambling of sorts. Now who the heck would be all the way out here? The only other people who would possibly be out here are idiots who think they can cross the wilderness without ample supplies or traveler's who weren't ready for the trip. Either way I had better make sure. No good can come of any scenario. Harichimo closed up the canteen and climbed up to the top of the outcrop. When he reached the top he saw a lone man stumbling his way across the terrain. He could still hear the man rambling on from where he was. It definitely didn't look good. Harichimo had to do what he could. He hopped of the rocks and started jogging over to intercept the man with a canteen in hand.

"Hello sir are you ok?!" He shouted out asking hoping he wasn't to late to lend a hand.

Dray kept on walking but his legs did not feel like they would give up. They kept moving at steady pace like they had inbuilt mechanical engines that did not need rest. Dray was marvelled at his new found stamina even though he did not remember how or what he was before, he just felt the change somewhere within him. The weather was moderate with the breeze blowing calmly.
Away in the distance, dray heard a different sound. It was the sound of running water. Dray walked swiftly to the corner as he saw the clean body of water. He crouched and dipped in hands into the water and lifted it to his mouth as he felt the sweet taste of the water. It was like his first time of drinking water. The water had a satisfying taste that made him want to drink it forever. Filling himself and quenching his taste, dray stood up and continued his journey. This time, it felt like the breeze was welcoming him to his home. Like the prodigal son had returned home. Dray remained himself and let his engine legs do all the work..

Finally, dray heard some sounds in the distance. He moved towards the direction of where the sounds were coming from and judging by their appearance, they were humans. He did not act differently. He just kept his head straight and walked past them. People of different nature, different behaviours and appearances. They were like the first humans he had seen. Perhaps, he was truly in the world of stones like the dream he had just had. Dray tried his best to manuever around the crowd of people that faced him but he just seemed to draw everyone's attention though he wondered why. He remembered that back then at the ritual cave, he looked at the mirror and felt that he was different but he could not exactly place his finger on what was missing from him. He was just a green haired young male. His attire was not odd or maybe it was since the cloth covered the lower half of his face but he seemed to like it. The fresh breeze that he had been inhaling before he got here was perfectly clean and impurities free but if he was to judge, that same breeze would have definetly mixed with saliva, sweat and other sorts of fluid from this humans therfore making it unclean so he was still a bit safe and just one bit of safety could prove to be life saving.

As he was being stared at, he did not stop to wonder why as all his thought came as he kept on walking. He did not seem to care why they were looking neither was he ashamed that they were looking. He just kept his head straight and once again, let his mechanical legs take control.
Escaping the crowd of eyes that fixated their gaze upon him, dray walked into another area of astonishment. Unlike the places he had passed where he only saw ordinary stones that were just there shapelessly, these stones he saw where beautifully shaped into houses, shops and other forms of shelter capable of accomodating humans. Truly, this was the land of stone. The shelters were beautiful and they almost looked like they were stones if not for their texture, one would have argued that the houses were constructed out of something else.

He kept walking and looking at the houses that flaggerbasted him though his facial expression did not show suprise except one fixed calm look. Right before him was a stone on the floor just like any other stone. As dray tried to pick up the stone and look at it properly, he bent his back and used his left hand to raise the sleeve of his right arm as dray stretched forth his right hand to pick the stone, several metres away from the stone itself, green chakra threads erupted from dray's finger tips and latched unto the stone. Dray was taken aback though he still retained his calm look. He lifted his right hand and yet, the strings were still attached to his fingers and the stone was still attached to the chakra threads. Dray definetly had no idea what was happening or if it was him who did it. He looked around to see if there was anybody around but no, the area was entirely quiet. Dray closed his eyes calmly and freed his hands and beautifully, the stone fell with the chakra threads disappearing instantly. This was a beautiful discovery if it was truly his own.

Dray kept walking and looking at the stone houses. Looking for a few minutes, he would slowly stretch his right hand at an item hoping the same green strings would emerge and grab the item but the effort proved futile as nothing happened. Dray gave up on the thought that he was the one that had earlier made the chakra strings.
He looked for shelter but of course, he could not use where belonged to someone else. With several hours of searching, dray would finally find an abandoned building. A building made of wood and stone. Whoever made this building sure had good ideas because the foundations of the house were of solid stone and the house itself was made of wood. It was a rare house amongst those that dray had seen on his way but he was lucky that the house was abandoned with the insides being filled with dust teddys, cobwebs, broken items including pieces of wood and broken couches.
Notwithstanding, this was a place to say even though it was much distant from the other houses and people definetly did not visit this area too often. Apart from the house itself sending people away due to it's outer structure that made the house look like it was hunted, the compound was covered with rocky stones making it hard for most people to walk over it but with all of these, was content with it as he settled himself in the house. He probably did not know anyone so the thought of having someone visit was out of the question.

"Hello sir, are you ok?" This voice snapped dray out of thoughts.. He looked around and he was certain that he was still where he left himself. All that had happened previously were just crafted out of his imagination of being in the land of stone but still, it could be true. Thoughts sometime come in form of visions and visions are actually what are meant to happen so dray held onto what he had imagined. That exact house, he was going to look for it, one way or the other..
Dray turned to the direction where the voice had come from and about five feets away from him was a young fella but dray was definetly older than him though they both seemed to be in their teens. Unlike dray, he was black haired and the hairs went back unlike dray's standing green hairs. Dray thought of what to reply. He was ok, that was certain but he was not ok, that was another complication, perhaps, dray should just be straight forward but he felt like he couldn't be. With a locked in calm facial expression, dray proceeded to speak though his mouth could not be seen as his attire was high collared and it covered his nose and mouth living only his eyes and the grey band that was tied to his forehead to anybody that was looking. He was just plain. He had no form of identification on him as the band he was was a plain piece he had found on the floor of the ritual cave. So apparently, the only piece of his skin that could be seen was his eyes upwards and his toes cause even his hands were covered by the sleeves of his clothes..

"Do you have any idea where this is?" Dray would ask the young male.

As he got closer the man's features became clear. Or the lack there of. Only his eyes, green hair , and toes were visable and everything else stayed covered in the cloak. Definitely not the most comfortable travel apparel. As Harichimo got close the man had asked to know where he was. He stopped an arms length a way and held out the canteen full of water to the man as a show of helping and good faith. Not many people would want to be caught out here in these conditions and it would hopefully be enough to give a boost of sanity to see another person.

"We are about a couple hours out from the main gates of Iwagakure? Do you have business there? Why don't you follow me to the outcrop over there? There is a spring and I have a few medical supplies on me."

Harichimo knew he had to help out somehow and find out more about his strange guest out here in the wilderness. It would be a welcome break from being out and alone but he has come out and shown himself to be an easy target but some one this bent out of shape could only need all the help he could offer.

"We are about a couple hours out from the main
gates of Iwagakure? Do you have business there?
Why don't you follow me to the outcrop over there?
There is a spring and I have a few medical supplies
on me." The young male would say while handing out a cylindrical vessel to dray. Looking at it, it was very visible that it contained water but just a few minutes ago, dray had found a body of water and he had drank to his fill so he definetly was not going to accept this.
Not trying to be rude, dray would reply to the young man..
"I have had my fill and when you say the main gates of iwagakure, do you mean the land of stone? If yes, that is where am going for I have business there.."

Dray of course did not know iwagakure. All he knew was that he was in the land of stone due to the dream he had and based on another imagination, he was going to find the house he saw. It was like his destiny was in that house or rather, in this land of stone. If that was true, then surely he had business in IWAGAKURE...
When the boy would reply, dray would have gotten what he wanted if his reply was positive. He just hoped the boy would not get too inquisitive...

The man asked for Harichimo to clarify. So an outsider for sure if he doesn't know the true name of the village. Well you tried what you could. It may be best to just let the man get about his way. He thought to himself. The man refused his hospitality already being taken care of so he took a drink for himself. When he drank his fill gave the answer the man had wanted. "Yeah since you aren't familiar Iwagakure is known as the land of stone. All you have to do is keep heading in the same direction you are facing then you will reach the main gates. If there isn't anything else I will let you on your way good sir."


Harichimo turned and started to make his walk back to the outcrop and spring. The mysterious man should have no trouble completing his journey with the lack of bandits this distance from the main gates of Iwagakure. There weren't many dangerous things out here and he would soon reach Giesi Lake or the Fissure Training grounds relatively soon. Harichimo had offered what he could and since the man refused he didn't have to offer more. That was the way of the Kazako clan and many medic ninjas who followed the old ways. As for now he had to make his way to the next destination to grab more cactus fruit and other ingredients before he reached the rest stop to spend the night and make his way home in the morning.

Dray waited for the young man's reply while taking note of him again from head to toe perhaps, if they met again. First, the man's hair was black and tied backwards as dray had noticed earlier, he was putting on a black clothing and his free hands and face could let dray see that his skin was as fresh as pumpkin. He was a bit tall though at about dray's shoulders and he looked to be going to collect something.
Dray had hoped the young light skinned male did not think he was rude for not accepting to drink the water. It was not his fault, he had only drank to his fill from the body of water he found just a couple of metres away from here.
Dray looked at the surrounding as the man raised the canteen to his mouth and began to drink his own water. The surrounding were rocky and more rigid than where he had passed and right in the middle, there seemed to be a clear path. Perhaps, this main land the young guy had talked about was up ahead. Dray felt refreshed like something interesting was going to happen but he could not just get himself to change his facial expression. It was like a mask was worn over his face and he could not do a thing about it.

"Yeah since you aren't familiar, Iwagakure is known as the land of stone. All you have to do is keep heading in the same direction you are facing then you will reach the main gates.
If there isn't anything else I will let you on your way good sir."
So it was confirmed. Dray was truly in the land filled with stone and it's other name was Iwagakure. He put the pictures together and if he had continued on this path, he would get to the where people actually dwelt but this man also talked of a gate. The main gates to be exact. Dray was not afraid, not the least bit for he had no bad records neither did he have anything illegal on him but still, he hated talking. He did not want to appear rude thus why he answered the light skinned male besides, the male had been of a little help to him. Dray felt it would be wise to walk with the male perhaps, some benefits would surface.

"Are you coming from iwwagakure?" Dray would ask the young man and after his positive reply, he would continue.
"And when would you be walking back through the gates.. I would like we walk together even if it means following you to wherever till you get back.." Dray would say politely still standing upright and firm.

As Harichimo was making his way back the man became a little more lively asking the question if he was from Iwagakure. Harichimo stopped and turned to the man so he could be respect full when asnwering. "Yeah I am from the village. I have been out here gathering plants and such since this morning." The man wanted to know if a travel companion was needed. He thought to himself. Meh, it wouldn't hurt. I'm going to be out here for a bit longer but maybe we can make it back before to late of the night. Harichimo gave a little smile. "Yeah I will be heading back to the village in a bit I will just have to make a stop at a far off spot to grab the last bit of plants and such then we can march to the village gates or try and camp out the night. If you feel up for the trip it wouldn't be a  bother on me."


Harichimo turned and kept walking back to the outcrop to grab his things. It would be a very welcome change since he had been out in the wilderness for so long with little conversation besides talking to himself. Plus he wouldn't be able to stop thinking about what could happen if he didn't make sure his village's new guest didn't make it there safe and sound. He got back to the spot where he left his bag and stored away the lock boxes and canteens to meet back with his new travel companion. As he walked back Harichimo thought to himself. Maybe now we can try to learn a little more from out friend here.


As he walked back to the man he would call out to the man. "Well if we are going to travel together I might as well introduce myself.  I am Harichimo Kazako of Iwagakure, the Land of Stone."

He honestly didn't expect much but it was atleast courteous for Harichimo to introduce himself.

Dray awaited the young man's reply. He had hoped he would not turn him down for his face looked too generous for though or dray hoped the young male would not suspect him. In the little time that he had spoken to the young man, he had analysed so many possiblities. He knew that he was just himself, without a name, without knowing where he was coming from, all he had was a vision. He understood that the main village which was before him, the one the young man had called iwagakure no sato also known to dray as the land of stone would probably not accomodate a stranger. Even though dray had no bad intentions towards the village, how was he supposed to justify that? He knew a few things but not to much to defend himself so the best option now was definetly to adjust himself to this young man who seemed to help. Entering into the village would be far more easier than going alone and dray hoped the man would comply to unknowingly help him.

"Yeah I am from the village.." was the first sentence that came out of the dark haired male's head. This brought a kind of relief to dray but if dray would have thought of it well earlier, for the male to know something bout this village would mean he was somehow related to it so dray now felt a bit stupid to even ask the question in the first place.
"I have been out here gathering plants and such since this morning." the young man would continue. "Meh, it wouldn't hurt. I'm going to be out here for a bit longer but maybe we can make it back before to late of the night." He said with a smile on his face. Dray felt the generousity in him but dray still hoped he wasn't taking advantage of it. All he needed was to seek refuge in the village and once he got inside, he would look for the abandoned house he found in his vision and even when he found it, he would live in there forever without disturbing anyone.. The young man snapped dray out of his thoughts as his words.. "Yeah I will be heading back to the village in a bit I will just have to make a stop at a far off spot to grab the last bit of plants and such then we can march to the village gates or try and camp out the night. If you feel up for the trip it wouldn't be a bother on me." Showed that he had agreed for dray to come with him..
This was beautiful, dray was happy inside even though the expression on his face was calm. He himself wondered why, he could not smile, he could not appear confused, his face just looked calm like everything was alright even though a part of it felt like it wasn't.

The young unknown man turned his back and started walking away. Dray took gentle steps and followed behind him as it was revealed that this was probably where the man was before he caught sight of dray. He had a few belongings ranging from different box sizes to water canteens. Dray was not to close as he was just some metres away behind the man though he could see what was going on ahead. He watched the man walk back to where he was as he spoke out a bit comfortable now.
"Well if we are going to travel together I might as well introduce myself. I am Harichimo Kazako of Iwagakure, the Land of Stone.".. Harichimo kazako, Harichimo kazako..... Harichi.. Kaza.. As the name would sink into dray's head. It was like the first name he had heard in a long while and the name just sat at the base of his brain, occupying it's own space just like furnitures that were brought into a newly built house. It felt good to know who one was as dray saw that the young male was proud of who he was.. Harichimo kazako of the land of stone.

Dray wanted to stop and think of who he was but he did not want to give any room for suspicion. He did not like people who pried into his personal life but he didn't even have a personal life for it was like it was his existence was just a blank page. Still with his calm unidentifed look, dray spoke in a medium tone.. "I am Zennyo Ryuo". That was probably the only thing he knew about who he was. He wasn't even sure if the name was his but he remembered that in the dream, the fit old man called him zennyo Ryuo meaning rising dragon. Walking beside the young man, dray did not care about when they would get into the village as the sun was already implying that it was noon. All that mattered was getting in and finding the abandoned house. Trying to get an edge from his travel companion, dray would strike up a conversation.. "So, what is tha land of stone like? What are the citizens like?..." Dray would think and ask again.. "Is there anything a stranger like me needs to know so I can get along well in the village since I dont know how long I'll be staying so feel free to explain to full length as we have enough time to ourselves..." Dray would conclude still with his calm look on his face.

So Zennyo Ryuo it is. Finally a name to go with the face. Or whatever of a face there was beneath the clothing. At least now we aren't total strangers. Harichimo had thought to himself as his new acquaintance spoke and asked to know more about the village where he hailed from and its people. He would have to think since he had never really had to explain his homeland before or the people he lived with for most of his life. Finally when he had his response he looked to Zennyo and slung his pack further onto his shoulder making sure it was snug and not bearing to much weight on his shoulder.

"Well for starters, the land of stone is a sight to behold. Most of the important structures are carved out and made from the huge stones that stood where they are. The largest building is where the Tsuchikage's office is, and it will be somewhere you will want to stop when you get there. So that he can get you steered in the right direction for whatever you are looking for. The Tsuchikage can probably arrange somewhere for you to stay in the living quarters were most of the hotels and lower income properties are pretty much carved out of the mountains. If you need to restock on anything the bazaar is your best bet in the center of the village and they will have most anything you will be looking for. If you ever want to get away and enjoy time to yourself there are plenty for places for that to. There are the hot springs and waterfall point that provide adequate privacy and quiet for those looking for it. If sight seeing is more your thing I recommend going to the coliseum. Another great structure that was carved from the mountain side and now lends itself to Iwagakure’s notoriety. Then there is the scenic overlook at the sightseeing cliff where you can go at night and see the whole village light up bright as can be. There is a place called Diamond Heights University where you can stop and read up on things or try to contact some of our higher up shinobi. Now as for the people of the village. Most of them like to keep to themselves. But it is like every other village with some really nice and some not so nice people. There isn’t a lot of crime or criminal activity as far as I am aware. The only thing I would keep in mind is to probably open up a bit more because most people aren’t as willing to help total strangers totally cloaked and possibly dangerous like I am. Some of the merchants may think you are up to something but it shouldn’t be much of an issue. And that is probably the best I can fill you in with. So if we want to reach the gates we had better head off then. Oh and if you ever need medicine or treatment but don’t have the ryo or patience for doctors at the hospital. My clan runs a small clinic where we deal in natural medicine and curing techniques. We can take care of you and I will vouch for you if you stop by. Consider it my welcome for you to my village.”


Harichimo gave the man a smile and nodded as he turned to start his walk if the man would follow him they could reach a spot where Harichimo could grab some berries that grow only on the outer reaches of Iwagakure’s reaches. Then it would only take then a couple hours to reach the gates and be back in the village before to late into the night where the sun would almost be up peaking above the mountains and shining on the village buildings. And a new day would dawn on a new chapter for the visiting Zennyo Ryuo that would hopefully lead him to what he was looking for. Harichimo blissfully thought to himself as he walked.

"Well for starters, the land of stone is a sight to behold. Most of the important structures are carved out and made from the huge stones that stood where they are. The largest building is where the Tsuchikage's office is, and it will be somewhere you will want to stop when you get there. So that he can get you steered in the right direction for whatever you are looking for. The Tsuchikage can
probably arrange somewhere for you to stay in the living quarters were most of the hotels and lower income properties are pretty much carved out of the mountains. If you need to restock on anything the bazaar is your best bet in the center of the village and they will have most anything you will be looking for. If you ever want to get away and enjoy time to yourself there are plenty for places for that to. There are the hot springs and waterfall point that provide adequate privacy and quiet for those looking for it. If sight seeing is more your thing I recommend going to the coliseum.

Another great structure that was carved from the mountain side and now lends itself to Iwagakure’s notoriety. Then there is the scenic overlook at the sightseeing cliff where you can go at night and see the whole village light up bright as can be. There is a place called Diamond Heights
University where you can stop and read up on things or try to contact some of our higher up shinobi. Now as for the people of the village. Most of them like to keep to themselves. But it is like every other village with some really nice and some not so nice people. There isn’t a lot of crime or criminal activity as far as I am aware. The only thing I would keep in mind is to probably open up a bit more because most people aren’t as willing to help total strangers totally cloaked and possibly dangerous like I am. Some of the merchants may think you are up to something but it shouldn’t be much of an issue. And that is probably the best I can fill you in with. So if we want to reach the
gates we had better head off then. Oh and if you ever need medicine or treatment but don’t have the ryo or patience for doctors at the hospital. My clan runs a small clinic where we deal in natural medicine and curing techniques. We can
take care of you and I will vouch for you if you stop by. Consider it my welcome for you to my village.”

Dray would allow these words sink into his head, hoping to make good use of them when the time came. Dray would follow thre young and watch him pick all he wanted until they would turn back and walk into the village unhindered, before nightfall.

The rays of the morning sun peeped in through the window and shone on dray's face to notify him that it was morning.
Dray rubbed his eyes with his left hand as he yawned a little. He stood up from the couch and looked around. He had no idea what had happened the last night. He only remembered that he had gotten into the land of stone late and he found an abandoned house. After then, he did not remember anything more than he waking up this morning. He had probably been so tired that he had crashed into one of the many couches in the abandoned house that had none become his. He turned around and decided to go see what he could find in his new home.
The first he saw was a spacious room with a bed in it's center. Dray entered the room and in front of him was a large mirror. He stood before the mirror and looked at his image in the mirror. He unzipped his clothe and pulled it off. He moved his hand over his face and touched it softly. He lowered his hand and moved his across his broad chest down to his stomach. He felt his well built abs and broad chest. It was almost perfect. He hung his clothe on the edge of the door as he exited the room allowing the cool breeze that came into the house slap on his chest. It felt sweet.

He continued scanning his new found home. The house had lots of rooms in it and the ventilation was awesome. Just as dray was about to turn back and see what he could get to eat in the kitchen, he saw a small cut in the floor. It looked like a door and moving closer, it was clear that it was a door. Dray carefully opened it and beneath him was a staircase. He cautiously went down the stairs and what he saw amazed him. It was a room full of instruments, wood pieces, metals and other items. He wondered who lived in this house before it was abandoned. Hung on the walls of the room were frames that looked like humans. It was like a craftsman had once lived here. There was a work bench with an unfinished item on it. Dray could not help but become more curious as to what exactly this room was used for. He saw different scrolls lieing around the room as he picked them up and began to read. For hours, he read carefully and what he found in the scrolls answered almost all of his questions. He now knew what had emerged from his hands the previous day. They were called chakra strings. He was a shinobi and he possessed chakra. Everything became understandable and where he was now was a puppet workshop. The wooden objects on the walls were puppet frames. Dray was interested in this art. He did not know where he was coming from and he did not know where he was going. All he knew was that he was here and to pass time, he was going to work on puppets and make them a part of him. As time goes on, according to the scrolls, he would develop in this skill and make puppets with his own imaginations. Whatever he wanted them to be, they would be. Dray picked up a chisel and so began his journey into puppetry...
