This was a bad idea, really bad idea. But she was here nonetheless...

Hinami decided to explore. She has not done anything like this before and frankly she felt that perhaps she was missing the oportunity to see with her own eyes the natural beauty of the island. She went alone, without Megumi, and dressed with her least expensive kimono, as she correctly guessed that her clothes would suffer damage. She was carrying her wakizashi, her backpack, water, some food* and some empty flasks, in case she finds something interesting. Also she did brought her umbrella.

She decided not to explore too deep since she was not trained to do that. The young Seppun heard of a place with Turquoise waters and she was curious about its properties. Maybe they could have more than just strange colours...

There well might be! It would be nice if the trip all the way up here was not futile. The area was lush with plant life of various kinds, and the pools themselves looked like a dream for someone who hadn't had a shot at an onsen for... a long time.

And there was no human soul around, as far as Hinami could tell. It was just her and her little jungle kingdom of green dipterocarps and blue ponds.

This was a breathtaking natural scenery, Hinami was impressed by the many colours that dotted the place. She wondered why no Tortoise has placed an onsen in this place, sure it was a bit difficult to get here, but it was a very beautiful location. Maybe there was something that was hidden to the eyes?

Hinami approached the waters of one of the pools and took a small sample, she observed it, and smelled the water indirectly, trying to determine if there was something inherently dangerous in it.

Maybe she could take a bath if there was nothing dangerous.

The water seemed very alkaline, with high content of calcium from limestone. Not ideal for hair but otherwise probably fine. There were some yellow fish in some of the pools, hopping across terraces from one to another.

The Seppun princess was satisfied by these results since the water itself was not dangerous for bathing, still it was not probably good for consumption. She was now interested in those yellow-ish fish that crossed from one pool to another by jumping. She took out her sandals, and left her backpack safe in a dry place nearby. She was still carrying her wakizashi, but she did loosen up her obi a bit.

She entered the waters, looking for a place where to sit and wash her feet while observing the yellow fish. She was no naturalist but she was intrigued by these creatures. How they could live inside these basic waters. She also took her time to observe the surrounding plants from afar.

All looked remarkably peaceful and harmonious. Even the giant hornet nests in the crowns of dipterocarps...

At least she noticed the hornet nest from afar. She was not approaching that thing, Hinami knew how dangerous one hornet could be, but several was not good. Not good at all. But since she was very far away, nothing bad could happen, right?...

In any case, she submerged herself a bit more into the pool. She took out her obi and left her wakizashi in the stable spot where she was sitting. She was still wearing her kimono, but since it was not an expensive one, she didn't care if it suffered some damage from the waters.

But the buzzing came from above anyway; perhaps something agitated the insects. In a moment of adrenaline-heightened cognition Hinami noticed something infinitely strange - the yellow fish were all coming from a shallow pond but while a lot was hopping out not one was hopping in. How did they even fit in there?

That was odd, maybe. Hinami was not sure since she didn't knew the normal behavior of these yellow fish nor what species it was. In any case, Hinami was wary about the hornets, that was her main concern. She decided it was better to get as far as she could from the nest.

She picked up her wakizashi, and tried to walk away from the nest through the pool following the water stream and flow.She left her backpack, for now...

Moving quietly past the hornets was just a part of the story; as Hinami hadn't submerged fully, the elegant scent of her expensive perfume would not fade easily. Some hornets were just registering her as a very large and sweet-smelling flower.

Indeed she smelled quite nicely. Her perfume was of top quality and now she was regretting it. The hornets were getting closer, inspecting this strange new smell, so Hinami had few choices. She tried to submerge as deep as she could and unfortunately she will have to submerge with her wakizashi as well, that would ruin it but hopefully she can save it once she could find a proper polisher or weaponmaster that could treat it with some protective oil.

She kept her calm, she didn't want to disturb the hornets more by acting with desperation. She looked up for the deepest pool that she could find and tried to save herself from the curious flying insects.

Just when the hornets were fast-approaching Hinami's plunge brought her to the bottom of the turquoise pool, and a fallen trunk in the clear water was just enough of a hold to not let her garment balloon her back to the surface. The oxygen would become an issue soon enough...

[The time you want to take underwater when oxygen runs out starts at Stamina/Athletics (Swimming) or Earth Trait Roll vs. TN10. If you fail, you take 1k1 exploding damage, but don't go up if you don't want to, you may roll against TN15, and take +1k1 damage for next increment (rolling 2k2 in sum). And so on. The question is how much time you can buy yourself before you surface, or drown.]

Hinami stoically waited down there, taking her time. Hopefully the hornets will lose their interest but how long can she endure under the water?.

She was not trained for this, and although she tried to hold her breath for some time, she couldn't and her natural reflexes to breathe won the battle of resistance, the only question was this enough?...

**********************

[OOC-Rolls]

1) Earth trait roll to hold her breath Round 1 - 13 |Pass [TN 10]
2) Earth trait roll to hold her breath Round 2 - 8|Failed [TN15]
  • Damage 1k1 exploding - 6
3) Earth trait roll to hold her breath Round 3 - 13 |Failed [TN20]
  • Damage 2k2 exploding - 9
  • Grazed -5 penalty

Imposible to pass after this.
23/38 wound left

When Hinami rapidly emerged, hurting for air, she didn't see much because of her hair plastering all across her face. The buzzing was there, all around... but for some reason the stings were not coming.

She coughed and gasped as her lungs tried to fill themselves with air once again. She could hear the hornets all around her. As she recovered her breath she moved her hair away and cleared her eyes from the water to see what was happening...

"Who are you." A somewhat brusque voice, though not without sweet undertones, more by hue than by intention, was directed at her. The woman was holding back a swarm of hornets above Hinami's head in some magical way.

'' I'm...*cough* ...Sep...*cough*...Seppun Hinami...*cough*...'' That's all that she could say for now...

She was still submerged since she didn't understand why the insects were not attacking her or this strange woman. And frankly she was still a bit afraid to get out.

"That's impossible. Why a Seppun here. Wait. Ah." The woman frowned and almost lost her concentration. It felt like hornets could get loose as they got enlivened, but she reasserted her grasp on their hive will when she put her mind back to it. "That's not really fortunate for you to be here, Seppun-sama."

Hinami didn't understand why this woman was surprised by her been here. She tried to rise from the pool, trying to not disturb the insect cloud. Half naked she acted with honor and decorum, as best as she could in this situation...

'' I...uh...arigato for saving...me, samurai-san...'' She looked like a samurai. '' I do agree with you...these hornets...'' She observed the mass of hornets controlled by the woman. '' ...i don't know why they...attacked me so viciously...''

"They are predators, they don't need much excuse." The woman lifted her hand and it raised the swarm, letting Hinami to rise. "Call me the Ranger, Seppun-sama. I don't need another name around here. So you've come here with... hmmm... Explorers?"
