Meke's expression was solemn as the onlookers gathered at the waters edge, and he trudged his way up the bank to join them. The netting was still thrown over one shoulder.

He gave the young lad a reassuring tousle of his hair as the boy ran up to make sure Meke was alright. The lad it would seem had taken a liking to the foreign drifter.

The Mira warrior threw a glance over his shoulder, but the water out there remained still and there was no sign of the man who had fallen into the lake.

He grimaced and spoke then to Kyo.

"I believe that a kashitarō kappa has made its home here," Meke explained.

The kashitarō kappa were a far more elusive cousin to the less evolved kappa that made their home in the lake, and a far more intelligent species.

"A kashitarō? Of all the luck..." Kyo grimaced. "Do you think that's what's causing their aggression? I've not heard of one causing such a shift in behaviour in an entire population of kappa before." Whilst the kashitarō were tricky and manipulative, there wasn't any precedent to them spurring direct aggression towards humans.

She paused, "Or, no - you're suggesting that we might quiz it as to what is the cause?" It was certainly more likely to know than they were ever going to be. The two species of kappa might not be similar in many ways, but there was little doubt that if there was a disturbance in a kashitarō's home significant enough to spur a population of kappa into attacking a settlement, it would know about it.

Meke inclined his head in a nod. "It is a possibility," he replied. "We will not know until we trap it."

He frowned.

The initial enthusiasm that had hung over the volunteers all morning had waned in the wake of the death they had all witnessed.

"Perhaps we should return to the village," Meke suggested. "I will return and finish the trap this evening."




Kyo looked back at the other villagers gathered, many clustered together and speaking in hushed voices, or just staring out at the lake. Where seeing another death at the hands of the kappa had hardened her resolve, it had shaken the others. Meke was right, they couldn't just keep working now.

She nodded. "Agreed. You must fill me in on how your trap will function in the meantime. If you need anything, I will try and acquire it for you."

Overhearing their conversation, the villagers began to drift back towards the village proper. Kyo glanced down at the still-sitting Ryo. "You coming?" she asked.

Ryo shook his head. "I'm staying here for a while. I'll catch up."

Frowning, after a moment's hesitation Kyo nodded. "If you say so. Take care and don't go doing anything stupid." she said, before turning to make for the village.

It was some time later that Kyo returned to the lake, apprehension clear on her face. Meke had explained his plan to her, and it wasn't entirely to her liking.

The kashitarō kappa were known to be lecherous. Their plan was to use her as the bait to lure it near the shore. And so she had changed into clothes that would be less restrictive in the water, and left her bow on the shore. A knife was concealed underneath her shirt for safety.

She had let her hair down and waded out into the shallows of the lake, praying to the spirits that the kappa lured to her wouldn't be the kind as likely to bite her leg off as anything else.

Meke was lounging somewhat haphazardly in a small tree that bordered the lake and the dirt road. It was an awkward sort of lounging on precarious branches that something his size simply shouldn't have been able to manage, but the cat in him found a way.

He was keeping watch, both for the kashitarō kappa he suspected was frequenting the lake, as well as the more aggressive ones. In the dark, Kyo wouldn't see a threat coming at her even in the shallow waters she was wading in. His night vision, and vantage point afforded him a good view of the area though.

Nearly an hour passed largely uneventful, and no doubt Kyo was getting rather cold out there when Meke finally caught ear of movement near the shore down below. A faint rustle of reeds.

Kyo tensed up as she heard the reeds rustling. Her instinct was to make a grab for her knife, but she knew she had to avoid spooking the creature before the trap could close.

"Hello?" she called out, doing her best to sound helpless and damsel-esque. "Is someone there?"

Uhg. She was glad nobody else from the village was there to hear her sounding like that.

Yellow eyes peered out at her from the parted reeds, and the faintest of ripples disturbed the water as the kappa sank lower into the water.

Mmmmm....

The lecherous little thing was only disappointed that the woman in the water wasn't skinny dipping...

"Mmm. A lovely lady in a lovely lake," his croaking voice uttered loud enough for her to hear.

He slipped through the water silently gripping a small stand of tree roots that grew over the bank, to avoid her getting a bead on his location.

"Don't you know it's not safe here anymore?" he asked.

It didn't sound like a threat though, and if anything it came across somewhat sorrowful. He used to come here and watch the swimmers in the lake all the time, but since the kappa had grown more aggressive, no one came anymore. Perhaps this was why he chose to speak to her, when he might have otherwise lingered in the reeds watching her without her knowing he was there.

Kyo suppressed a shudder. That voice was... disturbing. In more ways than one. "I know," she replied, "But I missed the feel of the lake on my skin. Staying to the shallows and taking care, I thought that would be enough to be safe."

The net was close, only a short way back towards the shore. "Perhaps you might be kind enough to keep watch for me, stranger? Alone might be unsafe, but with company, I would feel much safer."

The lecherous little pest was practically drooling at that offer as he released his grip on the tree roots and glided forward through the reeds, oblivious to the net that had been lain.

With a grunt, Meke gave the rope a tug as he dropped down from the tree, causing the net to rise up out of the water, with a very startled kappa flailing within it.

Water dripped everywhere, and the commotion had sent waves out across the lake, no doubt drawing the notice of the rest of the kappa that inhabited the lake.

"Quickly," Meke barked as the netted kappa continued to flail about and croak out guttural curses at the pair of them.

He was quickly tying off the rope around the base of the tree.

Kyo didn't need telling twice. As soon as the net was out of the water, Kyo was making her way back towards the shore. The splashes and ripples of movement further out in the lake was all the motivation she needed to be scrambling back up onto the beach in an impressively short time.

She cast a dirty look back at the kappa, reaching for a blanket she'd left with her bow to wrap it around her body to quell the shivering from the water. "I feel dirtied by that." she muttered, "But it worked. So that's all that matters."

"It will be best if we wait until morning," Meke said. "The night is not your friend as it is mine," he mused.

The captured kappa was disgruntled, but appeared unharmed as it swung back and forth up there. With the movement of the larger kappa in the water below, it quickly stopped its efforts of gnawing through the rope - lest it drop itself down onto the aggressive animals.

"Hey, you can't leave me up here all night!" he croaked indignantly.

Kyo turned to give the creature a disdainful smirk, "Can you give me one good reason why not?" she challenged, glancing down at the kappa below it. It seemed even their close kin weren't safe from their aggression.

She nodded to Meke. "A warm fire and a bed sound far more inviting than interrogating that thing right now." she said, grimacing.
