Kurayami's StoryKurayami was born in the poorest district of the underground city of Technicca, and ended up in the orphanage as her parents couldn't take care of her. The doctors at the orphanage was extremely worried about her condition but were determined to do everything it takes to nurse her back to normal.
Soon the orphanage was visited by a commitee that would pick some children to give them a better purpose in life, and so little Yami's future was set to send her to the external world to the ninja camp in Guenii.
Techniccans were the ones who established the caste of ninjas in the first place, to serve as guards of Technicca's entrance in the mountains, as well as the spies of Technicca in the outside world.
Kurayami ended up in the Nankotsu Clan, led by the new young leader Nishi Hidekazu, already infamous for having set the highest standards of flexibility for all of his clan's members.
As an important guest from Technicca, Kurayami became a disciple of Nishi himself. Under his guidance she quickly learned to control her body and move with an amazing softness and freedom. But having the Techniccan genes, if she only wanted she could do almost any impossible thing with her body. Most of the time she would spent with Nishi, so the rest of the camp could only guess what they were up to...
But Yami didn't live in a complete isolation and had many friends in the clan, free to demonstrate her abilities when she wasn't busy with her master. But whenever the leader was out to sit on his chair in the main hall, Kurayami would stand to his right, only waiting for an order.
The leader liked to sit in the hall as his favorite amusement was to watch what his people were made of, as well as see the visualization of various tactical plans for espionage missions and provide his corrections. When it was time for the members of the clan to show their skills, Kurayami would always be ordered to join the show. She would usually set the flexibility plank for others, even though her degree of stretching would be almost impossible to repeat, but many tried.
She inspired others to work a lot harder on their flexibility. The best of them was Kagemaru, another orphan who lost his parents when he was only four and was picked by the clan's man while sleeping under a bridge. Among everyone, Kagemaru got the closest to everything that Kurayami could do. The two ended up as very close friends, so much that people started confusing their names and ended up starting to call them simply Kage and Yami.
A friendship between ninjas usually meant much more than just a friendship.
"One day I'll be as good as you. I promise," Kage whispered into Yami's lips after a passionate kiss.
"Mm," Yami blushed hard. The embarassment, however, was not because of laying naked on the soft sheets being squished by the boy. All ninjas knew way too well the art of "intertwining the legs". It was the shame of making Kage work so hard on getting what Yami himself got almost for nothing, simply thanks to her Techniccan genes. But Yami was absolutely forbidden to tell anything about her Techniccan origins to anybody.
"What did you do to make your ribs so soft?" asked Kage. Yami's ribs were indeed so supple that for Kage it felt almost like laying on a pillow.
"Uh... It's just..." Yami looked aside, embarassed that she couldn't possibly tell her lover the truth. "Umm, I suppose you could soften yours a little if you asked Yoko to sit on your chest from time to time maybe?" That was a totally wild guess.
"Oh, great idea Yami!" Kage buried his face into that soft ribcage of his lover, feeling every rubbery rib against his cheeks. "Yami..."
"When I get as good as you, let's make a joint show for the boss? I'll be moving completely in sync with you..."
"Like a shadow?" [Kage no yōna?]
Kage giggled. "Oh yes! They don't call me Kage for nothing. I bet the boss would think it's cool."
"Oh, he would be very suprised," Yami nodded, smiling. A sudden glimpse of hope brightened her face. If Kage could really get that good, maybe the leader would consider sending them on missions together. That'd be great... and they could try to make love somewhere in a ventilation system...
"Everything's alright?" asked Kage, studying his beloved's face. Yami was staring at him like never before. Her eyes seemed even blacker and shinier than usual.
"Y- yes... Please do your very very best, Kage! Because I really want to do that joint show with you."
"I will!" Kagemaru nodded with utter determination in his eyes and voice. "I swear I'm gonna make Yoko push me twice as hard, when it's for y..." the phrase drowned in another long kiss before it was finished.
