Saito quickly assessed the situation, and figured out another wanderer had joined their little gathering. And he didn't recognize him from anywhere either, although he paints pretty good...
"I'm Saito," he said standing up from the trunk of wood in a fully awake state.
He didn't know whether he should give his last name just in case people knew about his clan or about how he fled from there, but these guys didn't look like they were from around his hometown though. So, he thought it was all clear.
"Saito Worshzu. What are you guys just wandering around here, if I may ask?
Once again, please don't post in the RP threads if you intend to ask something actually about the board, and not RP. No RP character = No RP threads for you. So please, don't post in here if you're not RP'ing.
"Hey, I know that name.............................. oh wait, no that was somebody else, WAIT that was you? No it was definitely that other guy... yeah it was the other guy."
Issun scratches his head, still a little confused "I was just walking through the woods carrying on my journey, when I head some noise. I thought it could be trouble. And hey, now that you are awake, are you going to accept my food so you eat something besides just a mango?"
"Yeah well, they grow on me, and I really like them. Saito still wanted to get some answers from these strangers, who seemed too friendly to be called friendly. "That's it? You heard a noise? I'm sure there is more..."
He was trying to pressure them into telling him exactly why they were here. They certainly weren't just wandering along and heard him. He was pretty deep in the woods, so they must have been searching for something here, or someone. Saito got nervous at the thought, but tried not to be scared to raise suspicion.
"No, I don't think I was going anywhere special, I just go wherever the wind takes me. I often have visions from the gods and I usually go where they say. This happened to be in the direction of where I was headed."
"Wherever the wind takes you huh...so how come the wind made you come here? You searching for something, maybe someone?" Saito felt like he was intruding on this stranger's privacy, and he was even about to ask about this guy's gods and his beliefs. He barely even knew the guy, so Saito would lay low for the meanwhile. Who knows? He could just be another spy, or maybe something even worse.
Saito had watched the sun start to lower down, night approaching. It turned into a blotchy orange, scattering across the tips of trees, beams of light coming through the leaves. Various wolves howled into the air, signaling it was the time of night. And Saito didn't really have anywhere to go, so he decided he must stay for the night right here in the clearing. He wondered if these guys were to be trusted though when he's asleep. Oh well.
Saito took a couple of big branches and assembled himself a little shack for shelter necessary for the night. He even felt like giving off a "Ta da!" while finishing it, but deciding to remain tacitly working. He looked over to the others, to see their camp preparations, that is, if their intention was to stay.

That night, Issun had yet another vision. This one was from Tachigami, the god of war fighting. It told Issun that there was trouble ahead, and it wasn't from anybody who he was with. In fact, it said that the demon could only be defeated by a group of three.
(Later that Morning)
Issun awoke to sight of a burnt out fire and a snoring Zen and Saito. Issun decided to go find some breakfast.
Nearby he found a river where he caught some fish. He brought them back and roasted them.
Saito continued having nightmares about his family, and other friends. He wishes he just could forget about his past altogether, or maybe he just regrests his decision to run away, I mean, what if they find him again? Will the execute him? Saito didn't want to think about any of that. In the middle of a nightmare, he caught the scent of some fish that smelt really good. He looked around, and he was on a bloody battlefield. So why does it smell like...
Saito woke up at moment, to discover Zen had still been sleeping and Issun was cooking up some fish. Things in real life should stop interfering with dreams he thought...
Saito reached into his pockets and pulled out a knife he made back when he was a kid. He approached the fish, and sat down, waiting for them to completely cook. He also pulled out a plate of Issun's bag. "If you don't mind..."
