"Hail the Aranean Queen.", were not the words one would hear now that Spider Island had been purged of the influences which intended to oppose Sero, but a quiet acceptance that Haka Osada, Unmei by nature and Daughter of Sero, stood at the top of the food chain of the island's spiders was apparent. Even when the spiders continued their usual hunt for anything edible setting foot on the island, their chitter fell quiet when her aura made itself known. Every spider had come to recognise that dreaded expression of the wolf spider, and so every spider left possible prey to the unspoken queen.

But power begets power. Haka would have to get used to whole hordes of tiny spiders running behind her like a crowd in need of worshipping something greater than them. Always lurking from the shadows, thousands of tiny, beady eyes gaped at her in reverence as the dominating force and in quiet analysis for a sign of weakness they could exploit. Success had its drawbacks. An unforeseen drawback to the greater benefit she had been calculating. Nothing too unexpected since  it was the very nature of the clan to do so but the spider had felt exhausted lately and had hoped for a moment of peace. Peace in mind and in body.

The luxury build-in hot spring of the manor was barely visible as the steam of the heated water filled the room. Within the warmed baths sat Haka by herself, mind going through all that had been done and all that had yet to be done. The stains of blood and dirt on her clothes were just as visible on her lithe body. The bath would do her body good, the earthly fragrance of pine giving off a rich scent while relaxing the muscles, but the exhaustion wouldn't leave her.

Was she getting old? Was this why Shi had not minded being bested in their hunt? Old, tired and exhausted despite the talent he bore and the expertise he had shown her? It once again brought her to the question how long spiders tended to live... and yet the arachnid lady felt like her destiny was not fulfilled yet. Perhaps all she needed was just a tiny break. Getting things cleaned up here before she hunted down the last of the rogue Unmei. Haka sank a little deeper in the waters, just keeping her nose above the surface so she could breathe. The last time she had soaked in water like this was years ago, when she had found Sero and he had sent her to the medic baths. How time had flown...

Verdandi was crossing the borders of the mist with the ferry to the oh so famous spider island. She had but two goals. First, she wanted to visit Haka and see how she was doing. Haven't really seen her since the squad missions in the sand. It would be nice to go visit her friend for a more casual get away. However, Verd would find herself in a strange aura emitted by the place. The Sensory ninja would use her eye and keen, fine tuned senses to get a picture of the island. It was unusually… quiet. The growls of larger monsters in thee trees seemed to have dumbed down. The masses of little spiderlings seemingly all concentrated to linger at the mension and around it. The woods and ashen pathway to the building was still coated in spiders that yet didn't seem to mind Verdandi's entrance much. The cold aura she emitted seemed to put them at ease. Cold-blooded creatures as they were. Verdandi's aura made them feel comfortable and some smaller ones casually followed the visitor to enjoy the freezy breeze. Some of the larger ones eventually detected Verd as a potential snack. But Haka had clearly shown her last time how to deal with them. One must clearly exhale a superior aura make it clear to them that messing with her would most likely just lead to their own doom. She had to exhale her chakra limiter a few times to send smaller shockwaves of her energy over the island.

While it did shoo away the potential nasty biters. It also announced Verdandi's presence rather clearly to anyone in the mansion. Including to Haka whom would easily notice Verd's frosty aura. Probably well aware why she was forced to boast her chakra a bit around to get past the friendly 'guards' that naturally made their nests all around the island. Verd could feel something was odd. She was aware that Haka was busy with some personal things but seemed to lack deeper knowledge over what exactly was going on here. Not like Haka was the type to go around and tell her friends 'hey guys did you hear what I did last night' or so. Often leaving Verd and Chi absolutely clueless as towards what she was up to in her free time. Verd would knock the mansion's door. The maids that would open well familiar with the icy princess by now. Quickly offering Dandi a walk into the building. Kindly she'd be informed that Haka was in the hot spring. Verd quickly curled her fingers together in contrast to being able to catch a bath. She nodded excited and followed the servants to the changing rooms. Quickly dumping most of her stuff in one of the locker baskets. Sliding but a towel over her otherwise naked frame. As she passed through the lids into the hot spring area. She would casually wink at Haka. Testing the heat of the bath with her foot for a bit.

She dropped her towel at the entrance rail and stepped slowly into the heat. One would visibly see how Verdandi's icy layer of frosted skin would casually melt down a seemingly automatic protective layer on her body. Making a few gushing noises as her cold collided with the heat. But soon allowing her to get herself comfortable in the tub. Making her way near Haka to find her in a seemingly exhausted mood.

"What's up pretty spider girl. You look especially glowing today. Got a snack or saw a handsome spider boy?"

Ignorance. After spending so many years as a comrade of Haka there was still so much Chigetsu was blissfully unaware of about her. That she was a spider masquerading as a human was probably the biggest and most extreme piece of information that he wasn’t privy to. Although it was something much more superficial of a secret to Chigetsu than it might be to others. Heidel. The Hansa. Sunagakure. He had seen to much for something like that to phase him now. She was reliable and he could trust her with his life when it came to fighting together as comrades, and that was all that mattered. Chigetsu wasn’t anything close to a detective genius either, and so it would be a secret he would be unaware of until the point another revealed it to him. There was more, of course. When he had first come to this island in search of training the moment his eyes caught sight of her Chigetsu had been interested and curious. It had partially been from his envy over the pudding she had been eating at the time, but once that hunger passed she remained a curious puzzle that remained in the back of his mind.

Now it would be something he returned to. Not Haka, but the ignorance. Back before his life had been so complicated, when he searched out a special training exercise because he wanted so desperately to feel important. It felt like age ago. After that first round of training when he played dead in order to step away from the chaos he felt like maybe the biggest fool there was. He was a mess for the week after. The inhospitable Spider Island become a bit of a second home for him temporarily after that. It was better than his pathetic little apartment which he could barely afford on his genin pay. There had been times he slept in the mansion unannounced after failing to meet rent payments, likely without being noticed at all by its occupants. Rather than taking a room to himself he would bed in one of the mansion’s many baths. He much preferred sleeping on a porcelain tub anyhow, allowing himself to revert back to his true liquid form while resting. Beds weren’t generally made to be Hozuki friendly.  

That was his intention when he entered. To take a long rest and forget, returning to think about simpler days. Ignorance. Things usually don’t turn out as he intend for them, though. The hot springs, perhaps the most luxurious napping spot for the young Hozuki, were wandered into without a thought. He would be completely undressed, having abandoned his clothing without a thought in the changing room. Somehow he must have slipped past any maids before he could be given a warning. His eyes were already weighted heavily with the strain of his stress, and the aroma of the bath waters would do much to draw him inwards. The warmth radiated out to reach him as he drew near, reaching out from the liquid to gently caress at his cheek. Perhaps all that he needed was just a tiny break. A short rest. He would nap here tonight and then return to his normal self in the morning. Yes, that was what he told himself as he melted down into the hot springs.

He only noticed the two girls as he was melding with the water. It was just before he had slipped under, and so his eyes would open and stare now that awareness had returned to him. He was a fool. The situation he caught himself in was terrifying. Verdandi and Haka together, undressed in a hot spring. He could only imagine what they were now thinking. He would stare down into the water now, averting his eyes after realizing what he was looking at. Rather than reveal his foolishness, Chigetsu would remain silent. It would be played off as if this were all intentional, and so he would adopt a serious face to hide his shame.

A maid would disturb her tranquillity. The only spiders of the clan who didn't abide by Haka's rule, standing directly under the lord whose power still peaked far above hers. They were loyal to Sero and him alone, but Haka didn't mind that. The whole gathering of the clan under one banner was primarily to have the whole clan abide by Sero's desires. The maid, another Unmei under human disguise, told her that a visitor had approached. Verdandi. Haka nodded, acknowledging the presence of an Ahoban and admitted the young woman to join the baths. A privilege as it were, since the 3rd floor was reserved to Sero's acknowledged progeny. Not that Haka cared much for such noblesse. Rather than the lady she was supposed to be as the daughter of the land lord, she profiled more as a warlord executing the lord's orders. A second in command at this point, but mostly an enforcer of Sero's will.

It didn't take too long before the human body of the Ice Princess slipped into the hot waters, the cold of her presence clashing with the katon infused waters. A nifty system put in pace with Fuinjutsu. Haka's eyes would as usual hold their apathetic stare, mouth shut until there was a need to talk. Even now, the human assimilated spider was not the most talkative even if she was long past the calcified mind she once held. Verdandi would speak, mentioning she was glowing. As if. Spiders didn't glow. Spiders were brooding terrors, little nightmares of gnawing teeth.

"The one that was worth my attention died at my hands.", she replied to the question on the spider boy. Shi would have made a good partner for a brood but the Unmei considered himself too old for the drastic changes Haka was bringing on the island. His legacy could have lived on and fuelled the growth of the spider clan but the spider was old, wishing to die during his own hunt. She had granted that wish and stolen the last of his breath in return. "What brings you to the manor?"

Her attention would be pulled by another familiar face. His presence, generally believed to be that of goo, was mostly disregarded as he waddled through the hallways and baths. It had been a while since Haka had seen him around the manor but it was a first time she saw him crawl into the baths on the 3rd floor. The way he seemed to slumber about, not even noticing the two girls in the baths made Haka stare at him something fierce, her desire to know his blatant intrusion wordlessly expressed with it. It seemed to wake him as he suddenly came to realise he wasn't alone after all, and he averted his gaze.

"Chi. Ge. Tsu. What are you doing here?", she asked him, voice calm and quiet as the mists of Kirigakure. The question not exactly asked because she felt offended he had been staring or because he had slipped into baths with the opposite gender but rather because the 3rd floor was not considered open to anyone but Sero's brood and he appeared unannounced. Disregarding the rules of the lord warranted was a walk on thin ice, his only rescue on that matter being that he was well-known by the spider-nin enforcing Sero's rules. "Sero's spiders might eat you if they find you here."

The irony behind the words would most likely be lost to Chigetsu who still didn't know Haka was a spider but Verdandi would be able to realise that, despite the dead serious tone of Haka's voice, the joke laid in the very fact there was currently a spider questioning him in the baths. Whether she would actually eat him was harder to figure out since Haka tended to devour humans as her go-to form of sustenance. Chigetsu was fortunately not considered a human in Haka's eyes, the spider-nin so used to see him as a mass of blob she had come to believe that he was much like her - a monster disguising as a human.

Verdandi would planch a bit around the water. Take a swim left and right. Carefree as always. Behaving as if Haka was her best buddy and best friend, as always. Potentially one-sided friendship. But being the one supposedly to be gotten 'rid of last' had long since been interpreted as 'you are my friend' by Verdandi whom happily enjoyed it to twist reality a tad if it made her feel better. Since she was now here, in the girls bath with her trusted friend, she could let go and linger in deep breaths of joy and relaxation. That Verdandi's supposedly teasing question would be answered by a dead serious side note of how Haka potentially must have slain a rather formidable foe to speak of him like that… ahhh it was not really surprising for the ice princess. Having spent quite a few years now in the spider's presence to know that her daily lifestyle was more likely a bit more brutal or morbid than the one the princess was living. She had met Sero, the entity of darkness. She had been to Hansha before. Experienced its cruel nature. She had seen the spider in her real, scary appearance. But still, just as she did when they first met. Despite finding her scary as hell, Verd adored scary things because they were fun and interesting. Potentially one of the less princessy perks of her personality. But she was a ninja, an especially valuable resource to Kiri and hence was granted lots of space with being a weirdo.

"I was going to see if the Hansha Gate was open today. I wanted to visit Pebbles! Haven't seen the little rascal in a few moons… I really miss him…" Verd sniffed for a second. Getting overly attached to cute little monsters was sort of part of her personality. She couldn't help but think of the glorious days of having her little golem monster chase after the trio and casually demolish houses and kneecaps in the forgotten village. She also had a personal interest into checking up on the village itself as they were still in constant danger over there. Having put so much effort into helping them and defending them she felt it'd be a waste if they did just rot away a few weeks later. Seeing as how Sero seemed to keep the portal going every now and then, however it depended a lot on him either being around at all or having any interest on letting the annoying princess bother him enough to open the gate again. However, as much time as he probably spent in there himself, he might as well secretly enjoy the fact that Verd was a bit obsessed with the place. In due time, Haka's attention would quickly shift from Verd however, gazing upon a rather visible, zombie-like walking chi that half-asleep descended all nakid into thee pool and started to dissolve himself. Verd started to giggle at the view while Haka seemed more annoyed at first.

"Awww its darling! Did you miss me so much you came to stalk me? That's alright. Though you could have just sent me a messenger bird." Verd was joking. Giggling to herself as she shameless approached her shy lover boy. Not failing to notice the absolutely shameless pun that Haka just made about the spiders eating him. "Hmmm I wonder if they could eat you… you seem a bit hard to digest darling." She nodded before she started to spread her arms and walk towards Chi, potentially snugging him in a rather lewd way despite their lower body parts being wonderfully censored thanks to the water level being well above hip height. If he'd struggle, Verd would chase him through the baths. She would surely catch up to him in time so she could throw her arms around him and take him down into the bath like a rugby player tackling their target. Moreso in a very playful way however. Verd was still in an insanely good mood after all.

Blood began leaking down from his nose. It trickled down his face and lips, dripping down from his chin into the bath waters. He was staring very blatantly. At the same time he didn’t know where to look. His attention was divided by the two women in front of him, and he nearly went cross eyed for a moment. Snapping out of it, Chigetsu would raise a hand up to cover his eyes for a moment before reaching down to his nose instead, instead turning his head down to look down into the water. The flow of blood would be staunch, and as he regained control over his mental facilities he would do his best to reabsorb the liquid into his body. He hadn’t noticed the girls until it was too late. If he had even an inkling of them being in here he wouldn’t he come into the bath, let alone strip naked before walking in. Despite how tired he was before now he was very much awake. Fleeing was his first thought, but that would mean exposing himself again and that wasn’t something he particularly wanted to do. He was trapped.

He would be unable to respond to their questioning. His mouth opened but nothing came out. He temporarily turned up again to look in their eyes as he addressed them, but that completely paralyzed him. Any excuses or defenses he might have been able to come up with slipped away instantly. It didn’t get any easier either, especially as Verdandi came close. Once she began wading through the water he would stare at her with wide, incredulous eyes. The nosebleed he had would start up again, and he would freeze completely in place as she hugged him. He was stiff as a board as she snuggled into him, although the heat of the bath eventually worked its mind and allowed him to relax himself slightly. With Verd’s body snuggling against him it was difficult to think clearly and properly, especially with Haka staring at him from across the bath. It was too much for the poor boy. His face was nearly scarlet by now.

“I’m sorry, I didn’t see you two in here. I wouldn’t have come in if I had...” He couldn’t exactly leave as he currently was. He would stutter it out quickly, trying to get the apology out before he lost confidence. Now with Verdandi’s arms wrapped around him he couldn’t flee, and so he would forced to stay here until she released him. Either that or until she put him out of his misery. He would let out a long sigh. “I came here to take a nap. The bathrooms in this mansion are more comfortable than the one in my apartment, and then I smelled the pine and came up here.” The inlaid threat that Haka had in her questioning went completely unnoticed. He was still completely oblivious. Chigetsu would clear his throat. “I’ll wait until you two are finished if… if Verd will let me.” He couldn’t exactly leave as he currently was.

Verdandi would swim around in the baths like it were a swimming pool. Considering the size of the 3rd floor baths it wasn't that far off but the back and forth swimming was nonetheless an odd thing to perceive in the eyes of the spider. It's use wasn't registered yet she couldn't exactly attribute it to humanity either. Anything thrown in the waters would attempt to swim for survival. That was normal. But Verdandi didn't swim for survival. She swam for joy, as if the pine scented waters only gave her more reasons to be active and about.

Her reason for being around would reveal itself as easily as the hot waters of the bath scrubbing off the dirt of one's body. Hansha. Haka would lean back some, looking at the ceiling as she called upon the memories pertaining to that area. The domain was a creation of her father, Sero, and only opened with his will. Haka knew where it was, the gate never truly having vanished ever since its first opening to the public, but Sero had closed it as she went on her conquest through the island to take down those that she considered a threat. She hadn't bothered checking upon the gate at this point, assuming it would still be closed. Meaning, if she wanted to have Ahoban enter the gods forsaken pocket domain, her father would have to be bothered for this.

"Hansha's gate was closed a few weeks ago. To reopen it, you'd have to see my father as he alone knows the Fuinjutsu keys of the prison.", she had yet to tell Sero that the island had been purged but that was easily done. The question remained if he would care to bother since the man had been digging through scrolls quite often lately. Reading up on things, figuring out solutions to unshared problems, fatigued by the war in Suna or still dealing with whatever a man of his status had to do to maintain it even now. Sero things, only known by Sero. That's how simple it was to understand. "You could ask him after bath if he is not occupied."

With Chigetsu in the baths staring blatantly at the two of them in full feminine glory, blood would slowly drip from his nose and into the baths. Haka was well aware of the relation between men and women, and rather amused at his discomforting position, but why this sort of attraction caused him to bleed was not something she understood as well. Were men not only supposed to bleed during such moment of arousal when their manhood was dealt with in a rather brutal way? Probably so, but then again, in the eyes of the spider Chigetsu was not exactly as human. So human biology might easily function differently for him. That said, Haka was a spider by nature. So even if Chigetsu had some sort of sexual attraction, the arachnid would not return the interest.

"Pervert.", she said nonetheless after he finished a perfectly fine reason for his presence, breaking eye contact to reveal a cold disapproval of his behaviour. Not that she was truly offended, but such was the general reaction of kuudere girls being watched by boys in supposedly discomforting situations. She'd sink a little lower in the waters, leaving only two apathetic red eyes above its surface to watch Chigetsu with a gaze that could easily be misinterpreted as a glare. As if at any moment she would be cursing his existence with the worst of things the Hozuki could imagine.

Spoiler:

"Oh stop wasting time on the humans and kill them already", the hissing voice of another woman would coldly berate the almost sub-aquatic arachnid. From the shadows a slender female would step into the bathroom, naked body wrapped in a white towel. She wasn't all that tall but her figure was jaw-dropping nonetheless, were one to disregard the feral glint in the brown eyes of the woman. It was clear. The words spoken in the arachnid's native language were not meant as a joke. Despite that, she moved to the other end of the baths, ignoring the two guests Haka had allowed inside and slipped out of the towel and into the waters with little regard for judgemental glares. "Or would you want me to do that?"
"You are not to touch them. They are Sero's guests."

Hearing the name of the Creator, she'd shot Haka a mean glare as her little game was instantly denied without leaving much else to retaliate.

"This is Ameya, my right hand. You might remember her as the black widow I summoned through Kuchiyose."
