After the blinding flash of light atop the dimension teleporting platform the group would find themselves briefly traveling through what appeared to be some sort of tunnel in between different realms, something that not even the space-time user Zao had ever done himself. The white haired shinobi tried to get a grasp on the situation now as he was making connections between his research and what was happening right now, able to understand that this was a tunnel yet he was unable to move his body to look around to ensure that the others of the group he had been with were here and okay. All of them were simply along for the ride at this point in time and after about twenty seconds of travel they would find themselves overcome with a white light before each of them would finally feel themselves upon solid ground.

Each of the groups members would find themselves laying upon the ground as their vision returned each of them would be staring up at a series of dark cloud above them in which a strong storm seemed to be forming, the air was a little different as it was filled with a multitude of smell. Of these the strongest were the smell of smoke, blood, and death. When they finally managed to get their baring's and start to get up they would find themselves in the remnants of a great battle but what might be even more startling than that would be the identities of the dead around them now. A gentle drizzle of rain started to fall as the white haired shinobi as able to force himself into a seated position from where he had been laying upon the ground, not user to this level of space travel despite his master of space-time.

Both bright blue eyes immediately opened to their widest possible point as he was stunned and unable to utter a word for several moments as his nose was assaulted by the foul smells and secondly as he scanned around them seeing that they had fallen into a battlefield filled with dead minotaur like creatures. Some were four legged and some appeared to have stood on two weapons as many were wearing damaged armor while weapons lay strewn out across the blood soaked ground now. This...this had to be the spirit realm and as a Tenku user he immediately recognized this fact despite being almost unable to actually believe it to be true now. They had actually left their own realm and ventured into the realms of the spirits, something that he had only heard of in some legends and myths that he had come across during his research. "It this real?" Zao finally managed to move his lips as the three questioning words slip through the small gap between the thin lips now as he tried to get a handle on himself.

"Nori, are you okay?" After several moments he realized that all of the group had been transported here with him most likely and began to turn his head left and right searching for the four other shinobi that were with him. They hadn't landed in the exact same area but at least they had all been transported to the same general vicinity as they were all located within twenty to thirty meters of one another. A feminine shriek could be heard off to his left side about fifteen meters away as the medic-nin had finally came to her senses letting out a brief shriek having found herself within a pool of dark red blood that bordered on being black in color. The two other chuunin were closer to Nori who had been about twenty meters behind Zao's spot with them being located about ten meters from him, one on either side....

The uncertainty that hung in the air on the platform was putting Nori in a bad position as he felt like it needed to be cleared soon, making actually kind of anxious which he didn't like one bit especially given how Zao also no longer appeared to know what to do and then to make matters worse the room began to warp further and further.
"I do not like this one bit" he exclaimed just as he felt, glancing around as the distortions grew.

Then the shining, bright man finally proclaimed for everyone to hold on and finally pressed his hand against the print presented to the group and in doing so they all became enveloped in a golden light.
"This doesn't..." the dark clothed man began to say when he suddenly began to feel dizzy, his mind whirling as the light faded and the group appeared to be pulled through a very strange and powerful space-time portal unlike any other (not that he had been through many, in fact only ever stepping through his friend's in the first place).
"... F-feeelll riiighhttt" his words finished as he tumbled down onto solid ground, sickness welling up within him.

The special Jounin lay face down in the ground, his mind in turmoil and his stomach equally so, unable to move for a good moment for if he even tried he felt like he would immediately hurl and as such even hearing the young medic scream couldn't bring him to his feet for a good solid moment.
Nonetheless the man pushed through it and struggled to his knees and then dizzily stood on his feet, steeping back briefly as he caught himself from falling and then he finally took in the site and smell of this strange world.
"Where in her Holy Light's shining presence are we? What in the Kazekage's name did we do?" the lanky man began to question, rather freaked on and easily breaking his usual stern self as he saw all the dreadful losses of war and started to feel queasy for an whole other reason as the stench blasted his nostrils.

After a few moments of what seemed to be deathly silence the young man finally managed to lifted himself onto his feet, his formerly pure white robes were covered in dirt and splotches of blood from the ground. Ignore that he turned and regained control over his body the man scooped up his pack after tossing aside the heavier exterior robe that the white haired man had been wearing for the brutal cold from the mountain top, the climate here more temperate and almost nice if one ignored the fact that they were on a gory battlefield. With the pack up on one shoulder he advanced over to help the closest of the group, the medic-nin, up onto her feet and to help calm the young female's mind as this was the first time she had every seen anything on this scale. Even the former jounin was taken back as he was able to start surveying the size of this battlefield and the number of dead and or wounded, though he was able to stay a bit more numb to the situation.

With one hand on her shoulder he turned letting his bright blue gaze from his eyes sweep across the remnants of the battle with a slightly better grasp on the situation as he knew this race of animals here, the Minotaur's. But to have actually arrived within their realm as still a bit of a shock to say the least but what worried him more than that was that he was unable to sense even his personal realm from this place. It meant that they were trapped here with no way to leave even with the scholar's mastery over the ninjutsu art of space-time. The look upon Zao's face as he turned around to the area behind him as the two other chuunin had regained their land legs as well regrouping upon the tall, dark clothed figure that was Nori. "Let's go link up with the others." Putting on a half smile the man looked down at the medic nin speaking as he helped her up and then began to walk around and over the carnage to link up with the remainder of the group now.

"Nori-san...this situation, it seems I've dragged us into another realm..." As he reached the trio of young men he spoke out to the eldest amongst them, his friend Nori, before continuing to speak. "Not only that but it seems we've landed smack dab in the middle of some war over who knows what." Zao lightly shook his head now as he turned to the right of the group looking out at a large mountain that could just barely be seen upon the horizon, something seemed to be calling him there as he found himself almost spacing out after gazing upon the tall peak for only a few moments time. Having to close his eyes to return to reality...

Nori was utterly speechless at what he saw, only really exclaiming his utter disbelief before falling silent and trying to look around and take everything in. Though it was very difficult indeed as his mind became totally boggled, even not fully aware of the others coming around him and being unable to properly pinpoint where the medic must've been until he finally heard Zao's voice which soothed him just a little.

Calming down from hearing his friend speak the black clothed man regained his focus and realised how warm he felt and as such he removed the clothing he was given to traverse the mountain from before, though it as still perhaps a lesser heat compared to being in the desert.
That being said what his friend did indeed say was not actually that comforting itself and as a result failed to make the man feel completely at ease, a twinge of fear still pushing through his stern exterior as he tried to compose himself properly amongst the chuunin.
"S-so what must we do now, I certainly do not wish to remain here as such I hope we can at least try and find a way back" the stern voice sounded a little shaken but not broken as he tried to think of the next course of action.

The young man tried to remain composed but it was truly a lot to take in and it was compounded due to the fact that not only was he here but the entire group had been transported to this place. Everyone including his young friend Nori seemed to be looking for him for advice on what their next course of action should be and to be honest he wasn't sure and the pressure from it was pressing down upon him. Zao closed his eyes and inhaled before slowly exhaling now as he tried to sort through him memories for some for of solution for their current situation as he thought back to the platform and how it seemed to bring them specifically to this realm along the space-time tunnel with no other destination in sight.

'It seems that the platform was designed to bring us here, but why? If it brought us here then their must surely be some method to bringing us back to the realm of mortals.' Confident in his assumption the man once more opened his bright blue eyes gazing around at the looks on each of their faces, depending on him as the subject matter expert in this type of thing to be able to come up with some method of getting them home. "I am unable to sense a connection to our old realm or my personal realm meaning this realm is extremely far away from either. That means I am unable to tear through space to return home, attempting to without knowing where I was going could easily get us killed. But that machine appeared to be specifically designed to bring us here. I can only assume that their must be a similar way to exit here. Lets..." The scholar spoke with utter confidence in his voice fully convinced that whom ever was able to construct something so intricate would have no doubt been able to do the same thing again here.

But before the man was able to continue speaking on the matter the sound of a war horn echoed across the death filled battle field as the ground trembled lightly, from the distance behind Zao marched a horde of two legged creatures that were half man and half bull from their appearance. Their numbers seemed to be in the thirty to forties and they ranged in size from three to ten meters tall with their colors seeming to be of a darker variety. The pools of almost black blood rippled as the thuds of hoofs digging into the ground as the group of minotaur had zeroed in upon them causing for the white robed man to whirl around and assume a position between the group and the minotaur. 'Not good...their is so many of them.' His mind was attempting to calculate a strategy but without the aid of his space-time to flee into another realm with the group they were truly and sadly limited in options.

"Seems we are vastly outnumbered, my friends." With narrowed eyes the man had already removed a pair of kunai from his leg holster keeping them concealed in a single hand as he straightened up his posture and seemed to put on an unusually stern face. A war flag was held by one of the five meter tall bulls as he stopped and stabbed it into the ground about fifteen meters away from the group of shinobi eyeing them carefully. Despite their overwhelming numbers the bull men were a bit cautious around the humans knowing what they were and how they were able to form contracts with them but had never once seen them within their own realm. This was when a seven meter tall, dark greyish colored bull stepped forward decorated with golden armor and carrying a massive battle-axe over its shoulder. "Human, what are you doing here in our realm?" 'Hmm...' "We're only here by chance..." "I see little human..."

This older looking bull that had a number of scars that could be see outside of the armor it wore seemed to reach up with its free human style hand and stroked at the long goatee as it stared down over the small group of humans exhaling heavily from its large nostrils. It had once been contracted to a human and fully knew what the humans were capable of in a fight. A faint look of interest could be found within its nearly solid black eyes that continued to stare down at them from its natural overlook being taller then the tallest in the group, Nori, by a number of meters. "Well you only have two choices young ones, either fight and die here or join our crusade and win your freedom on the battlefield..." A smirk appeared on the bull's lips as it snorted lightly at the end of its words, having them at such a disadvantage via numbers and them still a bit weary from the jump through space. The white robed youth's face almost gave a scornful look at the old bull as he looked then over his right shoulder to the member of his group judging their reactions and words now...

Nori listened a little nervously but tried to remain calm and stern as he took in his friend's explanations that in the end meant they where lost, though that did not necessarily mean they could not find a way back and indeed if they went looking they would surely find something but it was kind of a matter of having no clue where to start.

The lanky man remained silent for a moment as he tried to ponder about what best to do in their situation as Zao began to finish up what his thoughts where, that was when a loud rumbling could suddenly be felt through the ground as the group where approached by what could only be described as Bullmen.
Nori looked a bit in shock as the army troop surrounded them, putting the group in a tight situation indeed but then the elder stepped forward and made some kind of proposal.
"Well we can't just get ourselves mixed into some war... And yet I fear we may be at too big a disadvantage to fight them and it may be safer to accept the deal but perhaps try and negotiate it first" the black clothed man calmly said as he leaned in toward his companions, hoping the minotaurs could not hear their discussion.

Zao couldn't help but shake his head as the man's bright blue gaze swept back over the additional four with him currently, despite his own personal strength combined with Nori's they were not a match for the numbers presented before them and in addition to that their were some that were close two the pairs strength also mixed in with the military style formation of Bullmen before then. "Indeed..." The young scholar only nodded to his younger friend's words to him now that had been a whisper that even the white robed youth could barely make out ensuring their counterparts didn't have the ability to discern the dark clothed figure's response now. 'Truly no choice it seems at least for now. Plus we have no idea of the topography of this realm. Sadly we will have to bid our time with this group until we can work a plan of escape and evasion.'

Finally the young man looked back up at grey and black haired bull before them and cleared his face of any type of emotion as if their was no fear in the man's look as he lifted his eyes back to meet the aged ones of the commander's. "It seems we will have to accept your offer, I am Zao and the tall man here is known as Nori." Zao would go on to make a few quick introductions to the old bull man who shifted his gaze upon each of the tiny humans before him before finally ending back up gazing up the white haired man now who seemed to at least be taking charge of the group for the mean time. "Very well. I am known as Hitachi and I command the 2nd division." Soon the group would find themselves integrated into the military style formation movement as they directed their direction of march towards the northwest which was towards the largest mountain in the distance that towered over everything in sight. It's difference from everything else on the mountain range that was able to be viewed now even sparked some interest in Zao's mind now as well.

As the group integrated and found themselves in the interior of the formation, still surrounded as the army of bull men marched across the edge of the former battlefield not seeming to care about the corpses that littered the ground and stained the earth a dark red hue now. Over the next short portion of time they would come to understand that the realm was one ruled by five separate kingdoms and this small portion of soldiers belonged to one of the two largest kingdoms who were sent out on a quest claim the land upon which the heavenly mountain in the distance belonged. Though they weren't able to determine any facts from the nearby foot soldiers other than their destination and that this society was one based on strength as some told a few tales of their current leader, Hitachi, who seemed to be a rather decorated war hero who had lived for about three centuries already. To find out any answers it seemed that the group would have to find a method of speaking with this leader...

Nori turned to face the bullmen proudly and strongly after the group had briefly discussed their situation, hoping to appear worthy enough that the army would not change their minds and simply attack though he was still wary of the situation on the inside as he also hoped to simply find a exit so to speak.

With that the lanky man simply nodded in affirmation as Zao introduced him to the bulls and nodded once more as friendly as possible when the leader introduced himself in return, then with all that out of the way it seemed the foreigners where swiftly formed into part of the division and they all set off toward some kind of mountain.

It was difficult for the black clothed man to not feel unease over all the dead bodies of war but then again war was war and death a forlorn conclusion of it, even if the man never wished for such a thing even for these strange creatures he did not yet know.
As the army moved it seemed like the group would get little info from the small underlings and somehow had to find a way to coax information from the leaders, though with the little information they could learn Nori couldn't help but think that this sacred mountain might be of interest to them as well given how they had arrived at this place via some kind of sacred mountain of sorts in the first place.

As the group folded into the flanks of various two legged bull men and women that could be found more towards the rear of the massive formation that consisted of around three hundred or so spirit creatures plus the small group of five Suna-nin. Around the group they were able to hear various conversations, some that they could understand and others which seemed to be from an entirely different language than their own as even Zao himself could only decipher parts of what was most likely the spirit's natural tongue. Sighing lightly to himself this was currently the only thing that the shinobi could due as they were unable to battle this large number of creatures on their own and escape from the group as a whole was a slim possibility as not all of them were as adept as Nori and the white haired man were in terms of skill or experience and neither of the older shionbi's would leave them behind just to save themselves.

"Nori-san. It seems that I've gotten us in quite over our heads this time." A whisper like tone could be heard from Zao as the young man attempted to keep his voice down a bit though with all the hoofs striking the ground around them from the varying sized beasts it wouldn't be to difficult to chat between themselves. His bright, almost glowing blue eyes scanned the surrounds of bull men as he glanced off to his left side landing on his younger friend now. "Perhaps this mountain holds some secrets we need to leave this place." The former jounin didn't know for sure about this response nor did he know that Nori was actually thinking that this could also be a possibility....

As the pair would converse with one another and the surrounding spirit beasts a time of nearly a month would pass in what seemed like the blink of an eye as the mountain steadily grew closer and closer in their vision and only now would one truly be able to realize the vastness of the mountain that seemed to literally stretch into the heavens far surpassing anything within their own homeland. But even after a month's worth of travel an a few probing skirmishes with other various bull men the group truly hadn't engaged in any all out battles, which the young scholar was truly thankful for but in his heart he knew that this was a war between the various kingdoms and that sooner or later they would be dragged into this bloody war.

After about a month and a half's time the division with the Suna nin stood at the edge of a hill side looking down at what would surely be a glorious battlefield as they could see the base of the massive mountain but even on the mostly clear day one could not actually see the top of the mountain. An entrance in the form of what looked to be a man made cavern could be seen but off to either flank could be seen similar sized armies that set waiting to advance, neither of the three wished to move from the dead lock but in order to enter the mountain they would need to use the single entrance. One the order was given it would only end with the clash of the three separate kingdoms. "So it has finally come my friend...". He spoke aloud in a soft voice to his comrades as he couldn't help but sigh again to himself as their were no promises of life in war, only skill and luck would decide that but he would attempt to protect everyone with Nori's help. They needed to make it into this sacred place...

Nori sighed and briefly shook his head as his friend whispered to him for what he was seemed pretty true but there was not much they could do about it for now and so they had to buckle down and prepare for what to come, though what was said next made it feel like the man had been reading his mind as he took the words right out of Nori's mouth on how the mountain seemed to be the best bet since it seemed so sacred and they had arrived from a mountain in the first place.

With that the black clothed man then nodded in response to his comrade with a bit of a grin before then trying to get used to their surroundings as the whole division began to march onward for a terribly long time, the Special Jounin not truly realising or grasping just how far away this large mountain was or perhaps the time in this realm was different and there where much shorter days he just did not know at this point and could only do his part in helping this bull people so that his own group may escape some day.

When the division finally arrived it became clearly apparent that any small skirmish they had on their long journey would be nothing compared what was going to go down at the base of the mountain.
"Yes, indeed, finally but I can only hope it is all somehow avoided if not by some miracle forgiveness but perhaps ourselves somehow pushing right through to the cave entrance" Nori spoke quietly as he tried to wrack his brain over the situation after being here so long.

Nori's words were truly like a pipe dream, no matter how much that the young white haired man wished that their could be some truth to them in the end he could tell just from the blood thirsty nature of this breed of spirit animal that seemed to thrive on war and slaughter that this was about to become a large scale battle for survival. "We need to make it in there...but we will have to rely upon our own skills and perhaps luck in order to do so..." A long sigh passed through the slender lips of the former jounin now as he closed his eye for a moment and spoke not to himself in thought but the golden thorn vine that appeared to be a simple piece of abstract nature jewelry upon his left wrist. 'Toge, things are going to be dangerous and I'll need your help. Go under ground and stay with us so that you can surprise our enemy.' After finishing the telepathic speech to his spirit companion that creature silently loosen its grip around the man's slender wrist and fell to the ground were it quickly buried itself in the dark earth out of sight now.

Toge though it appeared to be slender and weak was a fierce hybrid of an ancient thorn plant and a shadow spirit that Nori and Zao had dealt with in the past together, once it was a foe an now after being bound by the bright eyed scholar on that day it was a loyal servant to the traveler. It was best to have some sort of trump cards when it came to a battle and Zao had a couple though some of them involving his space time abilities seemed to be out of the question due to the restriction on his ability to use portals but he felt confident that with the other tools offered by the style and his own experiences that they should be able to survive as long as they stayed together and fought as a group. Getting separated on a conflict of this scale was almost a guaranteed death as single foes would be isolated and then surrounded before being quickly killed off by the superior numbers no matter how much skill one hand.

After tasking his spirit plant the man seemed to glance back at his pack but foe now he didn't remove the weapon that was within its, if things became hard for them then he would be forced to reveal his Tsukumogami. For the first time in a long time the scholar's refined attitude and appearance undertook a subtle and slow change and if one was to catch a glance from his almost glowing bright blue eyes they would be able to feel a strand of killing intent seeping from within them. In order to help Nori protect themselves and the young chuunin's with them their would not be the opportunity to hold back and watch things from a far. It would seem that he would have to become something that he had almost forgotten how to be...a true shinobi. "My friends, stick close to Nori and myself and at all costs do not get separated from us...." Almost as thought it had been timed with Zao's words ending the long droning sound of a far away war horn cut through the thick atmosphere of the battlefield that had remained quiet for several minutes before sounding off. Its origins had been from the far left flank as the crimson armored army began to advance seemingly having grown tired of waiting and began to seize the initiative.

The old bull commanding the group in which the shinobi had become part of let out a hearty laugh that felt like it could burst ones ear drums before the sound of drumming could be hear from behind them now as their group began to charge. This truly gave the shinobi no choice but to move with the herd of bull men or be crushed under their feet as conflict was the only result for them at this point. The black armored warriors with them didn't hesitate at all and this act caused for the armor on the right flank with their silver armor to begin chanting something in their native tongue before war drums and horns sounded out and they descended down towards the foot of the mountain now. This battle was surely to become a blood and death filled clash as the three forward deployed elements would clash over ownership of this single entrance to what everyone believed was sacred. Even the youth believed this to hold some hint of truth as he moved with the group of shinobi glancing over his left shoulder to check on the three youths that would be behind himself and Nori at the moment. "Nori, we have to get inside that mountain or their is a good chance we might die out here today..." The man's normally calm and collected voice held a very solemn tone to it as he was afraid that not all of them would be able to make it through today....

Nori nodded and prepared himself for what was to come as Zao talked and reaffirmed his thoughts on needing to find their way into the cave of the supposedly sacred mountain.
After said talking, the lanky man noticed with a quick glance how his friend began to use his newly acquired companion which slithered down into the ground and hopefully out of view of all the bullmen; friend or foe.

Suddenly there was a sounding of horns as soon as Toge had dug into the ground and the white clothed man told the younger members of the group to stay close. It was somewhat shocking and yet it had been quite some time since they arrived in this place that it was also so natural, as such Nori nodded once more and steeled himself as he began to move out with the onset of drums that came in reply.
"Yes, we must do our utmost to stay alive and get to the scered place ourselves which is our best bet for leaving this place" the zealous man replied, glancing between the three chuunin before focusing completely on the battle that was starting.

As the battle started the groups of bull man would finally engage one another as at the very front line were the trio clashed techniques that embodied the five basic elements flew through the air smashing into one another or units that were on the front line with large shields or defensive ninjutsu techniques. From the reach of each army large bolts flew over head that were the size of a decent tree trunk, either being physically thrown by some of the larger bull men or being shot over via trebuchet or catapults. The warfare was somewhat ancient in its feel but still affective as soon the smell of blood and burnt flesh started to arise as the group who had been at the center mid of the formation grew closer and closer to the actual front of the battlefield now.

"Seems that we have no choice but to fight to aide this group in order to reach the entrance my friend..." The soft words of the scholar could be heard of the fog of war that was growing in front and around them now as he spoke towards his good friend, Nori. Zao's right arm was already glowing brighter and brighter with blue chakra that was beginning to acuminate towards the palm of the hand now. "You know I'm a bit weak up close, let me try to make some room up front for us..." With a faint smile appearing upon the man's thin lips his gaze grew more serious as he had to concentrate more on the technique within his right hand now as the wave's of bull man seemed to finally split apart in front of them as a gap had appeared and a number of four legged bull men wearing black armor attempted to seize the opportunity to move through the shown weakness.

But this simply wouldn't due now as the white haired former shinobi dashed forward ahead of his own group and thrust out the charka that had been charging within the right arm now as a blast wave of chakra outward from the hand in a conical fashion that wasn't super fast but its speed concealed the strength within the wave of chakra. Not only was the actually physical force of the technique rather high but all the weapons, debris, even bodies of the fallen bull men in the path of the technique would be swept up and used to empower the technique. The wave of chakra slipped through the gap in the defensive line as it easily flung those attempting to breach it backwards and while the striking force injured them severely enough to ensure that they weren't able to rejoin the fight for some time. But these types of spirit were defensively strong so it would take more than a wide spread attack to actually kill one of tem and if one of them was killed by the technique they would be amongst the few.

Though even as the wave of chakra kept the first wave at bay the army they had traveled with wasn't favoring to well dealing with the battle on two fronts as they were unable to actually close the gap for the time being. It would appear that the group would have to help them hold off now as Zao gave only a nod to Nori who would be able to understand the situation. Being a capable shinobi, the former jounin knew that he would be able to rely upon the man due to their former experiences together now as he prepared to fully enter a battle state. Something that he hadn't done in a very long time now as ten chakra threads could visible be seen being emitting from each of the man's fingers now as the top flap of his large back pack opened and from within it a pair of black swords emerged followed by three threads pulling a long fiery red sword out of the pack and finally four other threads pulled out four 'Blasting Tags'.

The bright red, half claymore looking weapon would be something that his friend had never seen but in a battle of this magnitude he couldn't hold anything back as truthfully their very lives depended upon this moment in time. As expected the army was unable to maintain the gap and a number of three meter to seven meter tall bull men wearing crimson armor attempted to break through and reach the inner portion of the formation in which they were currently at. Waving a hand that told the young ones to stay back it would be up to Nori and Zao for the time being to help carve a path through the approaching enemies. The only way out of this situation would be a path paved with the blood and bodies of their enemies it seemed...

The battle finally commenced and the shinobi had to rush in with the rest of the army forces and bullmen which was quite daunting indeed. Nonetheless Nori's instincts kicked in and he swiftly reached for his sword and instantly pulled it out of its sheath, though his friend called out to him about not being good at close combat before channelling some kind of jutsu to which the lanky man simply nodded with a grim smile.
"Indeed it seems so" he solemnly replied, feeling regret over needing to fight in such a manner.

No matter what happened next the Special Jounin knew in his heart he could not allow any harm come to his teammates, as such he was very glad he had honed his skills and learned a few things since his time trying to contain the strange creature now known as Toge and even probably gained some strength from all the time travelling in this strange land.

With all that in mind the black clothed man prepared to take things to the next level as he too also began to channel a jutsu, stepping back and out of the way of Zao as he then watched him finally release a large burst of chakra of sorts that definitely helped clear the path but of course it would not halt the movements of such powerful bullish creatures.

As one shinobi completed their jutsu so too did the other as a powerful gust of wind formed around the blade of Kamiokuri, a much more powerful gust than what would've been seen before and with it Nori was finally prepared to slice and dice any bull that got close and help forge a path toward the holy cave.
In fact the jutsu that formed was not only stronger than before but could reach out further and really swing through multiple enemies at once with great force if Nori so desired.
"Remember to stay close but also try not to get in the way" the zealous man then commanded toward the chuunin, really drilling in how dangerous of a situation it was.

The chuunin instantly understood how far out matched they were when they saw the bloodshed of true warfare around them now, they were also witness to the man whom they were suppose to protect releasing out a pure chakra wave that was grander than any attack they had the privileged to witness. They were truly to young for this in the mind of the white haired scholar as he manipulated the fingers on his right hand which controlled the flame red claymore style weapon and the two short swords to dance around the battlefield in front of him slashing at the armored bull men attempting to aim for their less armored spots such as the neck and face. A light smile was on his lips despite the situation as he saw out of the corner of his eye his comrade preparing himself for the battle ahead seeming to understand that neither of them could pull any punches at this moment.

'Nori has improved since the last time we fought together, I'm glad to see that he will become a strong shinobi for Suna in the future.' Zao had truly worried about the strength of his home village and often times found himself returning home just to check on the safety of the village due to this fact as it distracted him from his own goals. It was truly nice to know that their were some strong shinobi coming up the ranks within Suna that in the future he would be able to put his own worries at ease. It was at this moment that a blur of grey swished past the group and entered the fray. The old bull man who commanded the army had noticed that his division was starting to take more casualties due to their bad positioning within the mix of things upon the battlefield and needed to take direction action or he feared the small disadvantage could turn into a death wish for them all. Two enormous battle axes had already been pulled from where they had been resting upon his back now as each seemed crude in design but put off an ancient aura about them now. "That old bull has entered the battle!"

Zao couldn't help but exclaim out loud as the commander passed by them with speed far greater then his own leaving him barely able to even catch a glimpse of him in the process, his sensory technique being active was one of the reasons he was able to notice now. His strength appeared to be on par with his speed as each time he passed a foe their would be a murderous slash of one or both of the six meter tall hand axes before dark blood would be seen spraying into the air. Near instantly this one man had been able to instantly change the flow of battle helping to secure the ranks of bull men under his charge from collapsing, yet in doing so he made himself a target for many and even with his skill and ability the man was still wounded in the process forcing his retreat.

Though the young scholar hadn't spent the time simply watching as he used the cover of the bull's attack to rapidly deploy his blasting tags across the front of their lines within the deeper ranks of the clashing armies and at the moment the old bull started to retreat a series of powerful explosions rocked the battlefield. Back with Nori and the group of chuunin one could see the sheer amount of focus and concentration within the glowing blue eyes of the former shinobi who held a single hand seal having used the 'kai' ability to detonate the blasting tags. Attempting to hit key points in the battle out in front to weaken the approaching forces and disorient them at the same time, attacking in this manner from afar was the only use he could be at the moment as he still controlled the three weapons also. Fighting on the front line would be left to his younger friend whom he attempted to always keep within his field of vision..."We have to survive this and make it to that mountain." A set of forceful words escaped the man's thin lips now as they were filled with the will to live and sheer determination to make them come alive.

Nori stood his ground as he watched his friend take hold of and control so many weapons with the secret technique only known to Sunagakure; Puppetry Style, a type of style that had the wielder forming thing strings of chakra that could attach to pretty much anything and control it, though the man had seen it a little before this was the first time he had seen Zao use it full on and it was quite impressive.

However now was not the time to be distracted and instead the Special Jounin would use the strong impressions he got to motivate himself, as such he began to move and flow with the battle and make use of his powered up wind blade which would surely catch a lot of foes off guard.
Indeed that is what it did as it suddenly shot forward and sliced through a few weaker bullmen all at once but of course tricks couldn't last long and so some of the stronger creatures could easily withstand it, dodging and blocking with their full mind, though that did not stop the lanky man who simply attacked more and more since even a small slash here and there was quite damaging.

It was all rather difficult keeping up with such a brutish peoples (if they could be called such a thing) and Norio really had to push himself to keep up but he certainly did his utmost. That was until he heard his white clothed companion blurt out something about the old bull before feeling a rush of wind go by and seeing things for himself.
"I suppose that is why he is the commander" the stunned zealot couldn't help but also blurt out in amazement.
That being said now was no time to sit back and relax and instead it was the most opportune time to attack and make use of their leader's grand prowess, as such the black clothed one also charged in and helped make room for his comrade whom he noticed sending out many explosive tags in the makings of quite the plan.

Once the charges where set the grey whirlwind and stern wind user, along with other platoon members, stepped back and a large chain reaction of sorts unfolded as Zao timed his explosions rather well in order deal the most damage and open the enemy's ranks.
The loud, booming attacks where quite stunning and sent quite a few foes off-kilter even if not managing to kill them outright which was great to see, though it was certainly no end to the war and Nori couldn't help but agree with his friend once more as he said how they had to make it to the mountain.
"You are certainly..." the passionate man began to reply when a staggered bull leapt out from the side after being blown back by one of the explosions.
"...Rriiiiiiggghhtt!" he then bellowed as he turned to face said bull, thrusting his sword forward and sending the wind spear right through the centre of its chest and causing it to collapse right on the spot.

As the young, dark clothed man began to engage in close combat it left the slightly older scholar in a bit of awe at the situation as this was truly the first time that he'd been able to see Nori go all out and demonstrate just how far he'd been able to push his nintai abilities. It was an impressive feat to bear witness to and much like his young friend he would not allow for himself to dally as he followed up the four explosions as his hands began to move in unison as the five kunai in his left hip pouch came flying out with a single chakra thread attached to each of them. Something was boiling up inside of the man as his movement started to become more fluent now as if he had finally managed to bust off some of the rust from being out the ranks of shinobi for such a time. From the right hip pouch another four blasting tags were removed with a single chakra thread attached to each of these as well now as they flew out in a intricate pattern as the three fingers maneuvering the other swords continued to move independently of the others at this time.

Zao had put his full concentration into this attack as his friend speared his extending wind sword directly through a bull who had staggered into their way, Nori taking the lead from the old bull had caused the other warriors within the group to feel admiration towards him and in turn rush up to his sides as they defended him from attacks at his flank and began to fight as though they were equals at this time. Almost invisible threads of blue chakra streaked past them as the remaining nine blasting tags were placed in a formation just past the defensive line. It was time to truly rock this battlefield and employ the strategy that the wandering former Suna-nin had been forming from the start of this battle as their line had started to cut through the middle of the battle field and approach the mountain meter by meter. "Kai!" A fierce voice that didn't feel like it belonged to such a slender and delicate looking white haired man could be heard erupt out from the man's lungs and directly afterwards nine powerful eruptions combined almost into a single brilliant fireball directly out front of the front line decimating numerous foe either killing them directly or wounding them now.

But that was not the end of this attack as the climax of the attack had come from within as the bright red claymore weapon that was still attached to a single thread now shot forward and stabbed into the blood and battle scarred earth in the wake of the series of explosion and at this point a bright blue glow could be seen around the white haired warrior to the point that it would draw the attention to those nearby. It felt like the same amount of chakra that Zao had utilized within his first chakra wave attack before as it took a short moment to gather the chakra in order to set the last part of his attack plan into action now. Beads of sweat broke out across the young man's brow now as he released the chakra causing for the flame colored weapon that stuck tip first into the ground to glow abruptly with a crimson hue before a large pool of red hot lava began to form, forming rapidly into a twenty five meter diameter pool of lava from which a thirty five meter tall lava golem emerged with a fierce roar that shook the battle field as it towered over the opposing bull men with its giant two handed mace. It had one order from its creator..."Kill them all.."

The massive beast took the limelight from everyone who had come before it as it was comparable to an S-rank spirit in size and power as it's sweeping attacks came in wide arcs now smashing into a number of bull men with incredible strength while a the same time the lava based weapon dealing harsh third and forth degree burns to whom ever or what ever was struck. Though this creature was extremely powerful in front of such a massive number of enemies it would only serve to help drive their attack and take the brunt of the attacks that would have normally been for Zao and his comrades as they needed to seize this opportunity to push forward and attempt to enter the cavern at the base of the mountain now. He had already ran through his basic supply of explosive tags from his 'Blasting tags' and from now own if he wanted to make a powerful attack the white haired scholar was no longer able to conserve chakra. Despite having a large pool of stamina to draw from, this was a war and he could recklessly use his chakra unless the situation required him to. But with the lava construct leading the way as it swept its large two handed mace from left to right, even spinning at times Zao would motion to Nori as he yelled, "Let us push towards the mountain! My friend will only be able to withstand the brunt of the other armies for a short time!"

As he yelled the chuunin who were lagging a bit behind attempted to tighten up the gap between them and Zao as he himself attempted to close the gap between Nori and him. It was like they had said before the battle began, they needed to stay together if even one of them was separated then the others would most likely be unable to save them while still keeping the best interest of the group in mind. It was a harsh thought but war was never easy and some times a person was forced into making decisions that cost others their lives...'This has to work...!'. The slender hands had already went back into a rhythmic movement as the glowing claymore was ripped from the earth back to its owner now as it floated before him at the ready along with the other two smaller short swords, one on either side of the larger claymore-like sword.

As the impaled bullman fell it seemed Nori's combative skills inspired some of new bull comrades who began to charge in and work alongside him, pushing ever on in the increasingly tough fight.
That was not all for it seemed Zao was also preparing for yet another wild, crazy jutsu of sorts as he sent out more explosives before gathering another large amount of chakra.

It was quite thrilling in a way but the black clothed man knew he had to do his utmost to ensure all his human comrade's safety, as such he pushed ever on and barrelled into a few more foes with his ever changing wind blade; it was quite exhaustive but the group pushed inch by inch toward the cave entrance, wind slicing down enemies on either side whilst ally spirits blocked and flanked the other.

With the battle raging on the surge of chakra flowing through the white clothed man finally erupted as the strange and powerful looking sword dug into the ground, releasing a torrent of lava that swiftly built up into some kind of golem creature that followed its master's single but powerful command
"Kill them all"

Honestly was not something Norio would've liked to hear but it was something they certainly had to do and now that the giant, hulking beast was present it was time to forge a heavily needed path and so the lank Special Jounin nodded at his comrade and pushed on with great gusto.
"Yes, now is our chance" he called out in reply after nodding his head, turning briefly to look at the chuunin which where all thankfully following behind.

Thus the man surged with a powerful burst of strength as he charged in toward the mountain, the bullmen flanking him continuing to push into the enemy forces with awe and bewilderment over the sudden appearance of such a monster. Each and every one of them really began to beat on the foes, though it wasn't clear if any of the spirits understood Nori's intentions as he used his fired up energy to push forward and cut down anyone in his way.

As the leaders of the other two armies watched the lava giant begin to tear rapidly through the cannon fodder of their initial troops at the ground lines each of them had a growing look of distain and knew that if they didn't personally step in now then their was a good chance that it would cleave its way up to the foot of the mountain. The creature was pushing forward as attacks slashed against its molten skin but the attacks from simple hand held and projectile weapons did cause the creature damage it wasn't enough to stop the construct which operated off the simple three word command given to it by the white haired scholar. One of the leader's withdrew a massive golden bow from a harness upon its back and taking it within both hands drew back the string now as golden chakra flowed from its right arm that held the string with only three fingers as he channeled it into a massive ten meter arrow.

It seemed to take only a few moment for form the massive arrow before it then was sent screeching across the battlefield leaving a golden trail within its wake as it move towards the creature. The creature noticed that attack and went head to head with it swinging its giant to handed mace in a wide arch attempting to bat away the chakra arrow as the two weapons collided with a explosive sound. As the arrow impacted the spiked portion of the mace it pushed the creature backwards twenty meters as its feet dug large ditches in the blood stained earth, the mace itself had its entire top half of the spiked orb cut clean off. What power was concealed in that single chakra arrow?!?! Even Zao was a bit shocked as he knew that full power of his Spirit Weapon and it seemed as though a casual arrow from this red haired bull man was enough to put his construct under immense pressure. 'Fuck...I can't hold back.'

Once more he sent the weapon flying forward as it slammed into the ground next to the lava warrior and Zao's entire body glowed brightly with blue chakra as he formed a single hand seal channeling another S-rank worth of chakra into the blade the glowed a deep blood red mixed with a fiery red like it was a weapon forged from hell. Another small lack of lava formed giving birth to a second identical lava creature as the man felt himself go a bit weak, even his complexion had turned slightly paler than normal. At that moment a large dragon of water seemed to cut through the troops on their right side as it spiraled upwards to attack. Thankfully the second construct had already formed and swung out with its large two handed mace striking the water dragon and destroying it in one blow but the water drenched the mace and the left arm making them brittle. It was a perfect counter for the lava constructs as once they became brittle, if not given enough time to recover they could easily have those portions of their body destroyed.

This attack had come from the other general whom wore a set of golden looking armor, apparently he was some sort of powerful ninjutsu user who had attacked at an unprecedented range that caused shock in Zao's heart. With these two long range monsters out there it would only be a matter of time, time they didn't have to spare, before each of the beasts would be brought down leaving them unable to defend themselves from being encircled. Yet, it was not all bad as the two beast continued to attack now despite their growing injuries as the other bull men surrounding them pushed even harder. The old silver bull man also rejoined the fight, though he didn't push out in such a heroic manner as before as he was still wounded. At this time the mountain was only about two hundred meters away as the army and shinobi hand managed to carve over seven hundred meters of carnage through the other two armies. All three of the armies taking heavy losses though as the smell of fresh blood and death filled nearly every square inch of the battlefield, them all being baptized in blood.

At this time the white haired young man had to pull back his weapons and attempt to rest with his fatigued looked body just able to keep up with Nori's pace as he utilized his wind sword producing amazing results, it still amazed the man as he witnessed the growth with his friend since the first time they had met. A loud explosion sound range off against the giant lava construct on the left as the damage mace that had already been destroyed was down to a mere handle before another arrow rained down cleaving off its entire left arm causing it to fall down upon a group of bull man who could only cry out in agony as they were crushed and burned alive under its massive weight. The second construct soon had its mace and right arm shattered after three consecutive water dragons rained down upon it cooling the weapon and arm to the point of becoming brittle. Luckily these creature were unlike humans and such wounds meant nothing to them as they simply continued to attack everything around and in front of them allowing the group to continue to spear head directly forward.

They had finally pushed to within a hundred and fifty meters from their goal that was a cavern opening that was about ten meter or so wide and about fifteen meters tall. 'We must make it!' Zao's tired blue eyes were observing the battlefield around them but his main focus was the entrance before them, as much as he wished to help out the army of bull men who had been the driving force behind this attack and the reason they had been able to push this close his true goal was to keep his friend and the chuunin safe. Chakra threads from his right hand removed a two kunai from the thigh holster on the right leg, these were two true link original kunai but in order to use them they still needed to push at least fifty meters forward bit their progress had seemingly stalled and if this continued they would be possibly start loosing ground...

Though gruesome the ever raging battle was also epic and just seeing the giant lava monster take down so many soldiers was quite the sight, filling Nori with even more awe and passion as he fought through a multitude of enemies himself.
That being said it didn't take long for the foes to counterattack with the leaders on each side going in for an attack; first a powerful arrow that was barely batted away with a devastating blow to the monster's own weapon, then more arrows that kept piling on pressure and caused Zao to take himself to his limit and summon a second lava being to fight alongside its brethren.

It was quite the dangerous spectacle indeed and the black clothed man could easily see the toll it had on his friend, especially since it was looking just barely enough with the new monster only just blocking the brunt of a massive water jutsu by smashing it down with its mace.
"Damn, so strong" the man just kind of muttered, gritting his teeth over the pressure.

Nonetheless they had to push on and so the Special Jounin continued to cut down more bullmen, leaving an unseemly mess in his wake as he sometimes even found himself slicing off entire body parts. With this push the group started to get so close to the cavern and as the wind in his blade felt like it was beginning to wane, the lanky male simply channelled even more and brought it back up to full strength and tried his best to keep up with the new comrades of sorts that where happily flanking either side like some kind of ragtag group of bulls.

Thankfully he had such a strong willed comrade at his side to help take up the slack during the short time that he was attempting to recover after successively using basically two s-ranked techniques back to back, though even that didn't seem like it was going to be enough for them to make it into the mountain as the other two armies had clashed in front of the entrance. Though it wasn't the small warrior bulls of the army in front of them that worried Zao as much as it was the two leaders of the other bulls that had been forced to enter the fray after Zao had exposed one of his trump cards to them now, but it also forced them to reveal their strengths against the creatures and not Zao and his friends.

Still manipulating the kunai with one hand he began to stretch the chakra thread attached to its towards it max limit as they had entered within the entrance way to the mountain now as they drew within two hundred to a hundred and fifty meters as their was a snap of the thread like the whip which propelled the original 'True Link' kunai into the darkness that was the opening in the base of the mountain. The tiny kunai disappeared within the large opening that was at least ten to fifteen meters tall before Zao lost sight of it. "Nori! We have to regroup!" At that moment an enormous golden arrow shot upwards above the battlefield as it seemed to climate to an unprecedented height before it exploded in a powerful rain of hundreds of arrows that targeted not only the two lava giants but also the part of the group where Nori, Zao, and the three chuunin were fighting for their own lives with every attack.

The golden gleam from the attack had only been caught out of the corner of the panting, white haired man's vision as he could tell that this wasn't a normal attack just based on its incredible size. Even after splitting apart into over a hundred arrows these arrows were still at least ten meters long and over three meters thick. In truth it was a special attack that the leader of that army could only utilize at most twice before exhausting his full strenth and it wasn't something he would normally expose but hte lava constructs had caused to much havoc to quickly and neeed to be stopped immediately. The scholar's left hand snatched a kunai that was the copy to the one that had been thrown within the darkness of the mountain's interior as he turned on the balls of his feet quickly searching area behind him for the three shinobi. One was near him, the tall ninjutsu user as he pushed to him first as he scanned for the other two after having called out to Nori just a moment earlier to regroup.

Nori would find the bulky taijutsu user helping off to his left side, using his brute strength and swords to fight back some of the weaker bullmen who were clashing on the front lines, though the young girl who was their medic-nin couldn't be seen. The sound of the massive golden chakra arrows cutting down through the air was like artillary shells falling as they whistled loudly as they only had a few seconds to spare as Zao could see the girl way back in the formation where it appeared she had gotten lost or seperated from them during the push towards the mountain. "Fuck!" With a hard push he used his chakra strings to attempt to grab her as he couldn't physically get to her in time and they would put him to far away from Nori and the muscle bound chuunin. They had to be able to touch one another for him to pull the group with him and teleport to his other kunai. They attached themselves to her left side as he pulled her with a powerful yank of his right and left arms in unison causing her to fly towards the forming group...hopefully they would all make it in time..

Nori pushed as hard as he could, though he too was concerned about the powerful leaders of the armies which where really starting to give it their all and cause a lot of ruckus that seemed like it was going to spread beyond just the lava golems that where now taking quite the beating.

The Special Jounin had noticed what his friend was trying to do despite looking awfully exhausted and already prepared to move in as said friend called out, however things would not be so easy and simple for one of the leaders finally launched a powerful attack that cascaded down across the whole area which looked to cause quite the inconvenience.
"Very well!" the black clothed man called out in reply rather sternly with a hint of worry in his tone.

Nori moved swiftly and found the bulky chuunin nearby and ushered him to get to Zao with haste, though the medic girl couldn't be seen until she was pulled in by chakra strings with the remains of Zao's strength which was hopefully enough.
As the arrows began to fall to the ground the dark clothed male made a mad dash to his comrade and also found the third chuunin along the way and got them moving, making a close call indeed as he even swiped through some arrows overhead with his wind blade which seemed to barely knock them off course.
"C'mooonnn" he grunted as he reached out for his friend and hoped they all made it in time.

The first part of the golden arrows formed from the bowman's chakra rained down from the sky impacting now as the full strength pull from the white haired man now with his chakra strings suddenly halted as a large golden arrow pinned the girl to the ground to the point that even Zao was unable to budge her. Blood stained the ground below as arrows continued to rain down towards the rest of the group now, a stray arrow had claimed the medic-nin's life in an instantly as she could only hand in what seemed like mid air her body began to slide down the chakra arrow with a lifeless look in her eye. This only took an instant but it caused for Zao to freeze for just a moment and in battle any amount of hesitation could end up causing one to lose their life.

Another set of arrows crashed down around Zao as he came back to his senses, remembering that the rest of the group was only a short distance behind him as he pushed off with his legs sending his body careening backwards now towards Nori's voice, a tear running down the left side of his face for the girl as he was unable to take his bright gaze from her lifeless body now. He had not been strong enough to save her and suddenly as if he sensed something from above he looked up to find an arrow about to strike him down. Using his chakra strings he managed to twist his body mid air as the foot wide arrow shaft grazed his left arm sending a spray of crimson into the air as he spun almost out of control. Zao's uninjured right hand stretched back and at that moment, attempting to find the hand of his friend. Suddenly he felt a strong grip upon his own hand from Nori and with what little movement he could do with his left hand the bloody man touched a single kunai of the left thigh.

The group warped through space and time now vanishing from the violence and bloodshed upon the battle ground and not a moment to soon as the final wave of arrows bore down upon where they had been smashing into the ground and decimating the two lava constructs along with collapsing part of the mountain. This caused for the group who appeared about thirty to forty meters inside the mountain to hear the collapsing of rocks behind them now as the entrance was sealed off which would put them in complete darkness but give them a momentary relief from the battle still raging outside the mountain side. After several moments the rumbling stopped and the inside of the mountain grew almost eerily quiet while one could only faintly hear the sounds of battle from outside now.

"I'm sorry..." Two simple words could be heard as they broke through the dark abyss with a sad and soft tone of voice behind them originating from Zao who held his injured shoulder and arm with the right hand, having ripped off some of his robe to use as a pressure bandage to help with the bleeding. The man's mind was filled with what if and could haves about what he could have done differently to have saved the young chuunin who shouldn't' have even been on a mission of this level. Had he know that this journey would have led them to such a place then he would have requested two jounin....sadly it was to late to have these questions but the man couldn't help but fill his mind with them as he sat upon the cold stone floor of the dark cavern. His messy white hair falling in front of his face as something burned inside of the man causing his eyes to faintly glow with a light blue hue in the darkness...
