Fuyuko had been lazing around for most of the morning. She had been training herself for a couple of days in a row to hone her skills and part of training is also to take a break from it and let your body rest. However she had seen enough of the interior of her house for one day and decided to go on a stroll through town. She would’ve preferred going to the forest but if she did that she wasn’t sure she could keep herself from training more.
Having arrived into the more central part of town it seemed more active than the average day of the week. With her interests piqued she went around and searched for the source that caused the commotion. As the crowd got more and more rowdy with direction she was moving in she was sure she was on the right path. Sure enough a couple of meters further ahead it became impossible to penetrate any further into the crowd. Not letting this stop her she jumped onto one of the rooftops close by to get a bird’s eye view of the area. Blood. An incredible amount of blood was splattered all across the floor. Not far from it were two bodies on the floor covered with blankets.
Captivated by the sight, she hadn’t realized that there was a shinobi listing up all the bad crimes the two of them had supposedly committed. This wasn’t the first time this had happened nor will it be the last time. These mysterious murders had been happening for quite a while, way longer than Fuyuko was aware of. She herself hasn’t known about it for more than two weeks tops. The only thing she had deduced from the whole situation was that the village itself wasn’t behind the attacks. They, the village’s higher ups, also hadn’t caught the perpetrator. That’s why they had someone list their crimes, because if they could somehow justify the deaths of these people the town wouldn’t go into an uproar.
Uncertainty was the main feeling Fuyuko got from the whole situation. On one side of the coin she could understand that the village seemed contempt with what was happening. An unknown person was killing off the weed of the town for them and all they had to do was justify it. To top that off the village wasn’t a very merciful one to begin with, so she could definitely see why they seemed reluctant on capturing the person behind it all. But the other side of the coin was filled with her own ideals. The ideals that heavily conflicted with that of the village. She wanted to give everyone a second chance, or at least try to give everyone a second chance. To her there should always be room for redemption for the criminals, no matter the crime they may have committed. There were no issues with killing someone that refused her salvation, but they should at least be offered that at the bare minimum. And to Fuyuko the whole situation just felt like they were killed in cold blood. Killed simply because they took some bad steps in life.
With new motivation surging through her body she quickly ran towards home to change into her mission gear. Having swapped out her clothes her next destination was the training grounds of the village. She needed to become stronger. She needed to be so strong she could take on anyone. Be able to offer people redemption, but be able to strike them down if they refused. But the biggest drive right now was becoming strong enough to capture the person that was behind all the murders. Because to her, that person should also be taken down. She felt like that person was just being hypocritical.
