Yogu wasn't a fan of forests. Especially big, confusing ones that you get lost in easily. It's even worse when the place is literally called bramble forest, and it's covered from canopy to undergrowth in thorns. "THIS IS REALLY STARTIN' TA PISS ME OFF!" Yogu lobs a ki ball at a tree, sending it crashing down. He did not expect the tree to be that tall. It just kept tumbling down. He had been watching it fall for a full minute now and the top of the tree still hadn't hit the ground. Even when he started walking away, he didn't hear the sound of the tree crashing to the ground end. Perhaps the weirdest part of the entire experience was that the tree crashing down was the first sound he had heard all day, aside from the crunching of his feet on the gravel. Hell sure was a weird place.
Where was Yogu going to that required him to cross the Bramble Forest? He didn't know. All he knew was that something was on the other side. Maybe someplace where all the demons hang out. Maybe he could spend eternity fighting demons until his soul finally gives out. That didn't sound so bad. He could picture it now. Him spending his time punishing Demons even more than they already have been. And his punishment was that he wasn't ever going to see his friends again. Sounded like something out of a comic book.
It was pretty funny, comparing his first few days in Hell to his first few days in Heaven. Back then, not having a fully physical body was strange, and he found it hard to control himself or move around. And now? It was business as usual. In fact, it almost felt like he could move around easier while he was dead than when he was alive. Another thing he had just realized, he was a lot quieter now than when he was alive. When he was living, he was always animated, doing something, or shouting about whatever. Even in Heaven, he was constantly surrounded by friends to talk to. Now he spent most of his time walking silently and occasionally asking for directions from an Ogre or some wayward soul. He was a man on a mission, that he didn't know the objective of.
The pathway through the dark and depressing forest opened up into a clearing. It was definitely manmade, considering there were hundreds of tree stumps in the area. "What the hell? Were people fighting around here or something? What could've cleared up all of those trees? Guess it doesn't matter. Probably happened ages ago." As Yogu continued his way through the clearing, he noticed a smokestack just over a hill. "Someone has a house all the way out here? That's strange... Then again, it doesn't seem to really be dangerous around here. Pretty peaceful too." When he finally reaches the top of the hill, he sees a little Tavern/Inn sitting there. "Well isn't that just convenient. It's like something out of a Snakes and Shenrons game! ...N-Not that I've ever played before or anything... That's nerd stuff!"
Yogu opens the door to the Tavern and steps inside. The place is completely devoid of life, save for the bartender. There's a few chairs and tables strew about haphazardly. The only sound being made is the creaking of the floorboards and the faint shaking of the tiny ceiling fan. It wasn't doing much to stave off the heat of Hell. "Hey." Yogu sits down and orders a glass of water. The red Ogre bartender nods and grabs a bottle of that strange red liquid Yogu kept seeing everywhere. "I said water, pal." "The closest thing we got. Tastes the same." Yogu sighs and starts drinking the red liquid. What was the worst that'd happen? He'd die?
Suddenly, a big red hand grabs onto his shoulder. "Hey, there little guy." Yogu didn't bother to turn around. He already knew what it was. A demon. The first one he had encountered in Hell. "Took this damn shithole long enough to let me run into one of these things." The Demon sits down next to Yogu, who still doesn't bother to look in his direction. "We don't see many lost souls this far out... Ya get lost in the Bramble Forest and stumble in here?" Yogu finishes the rest of his drink. "Not lost." The Demon chuckles. "Oooh, well aren't you mysterious and intimidating... HAHAHA! You sounded so dumb when you said that! A line like that doesn't fit you at all!" The Demon had a point. That sorta talk just didn't fit him. "Yeah, you're right. But ya can't blame a guy for trying to sound cool though, right?" Yogu finally turns to face the Demon, and whips the beast in the face with his bottle! It breaks on impact, shattering all over the creature's face. It falls out of it's chair and stumbles back. Yogu jumps out of his chair and looks around the tavern. That demon didn't come alone. He had his own little gang with him.
The Demon was a pretty generic looking one, big, red, and has horns. The big monster swings a couple of overheard punches at Yogu which he sidesteps with ease. "You swing too wide, and that's coming from a NOVICE!" He lunges towards the Demon, bringing a sharp knee to the gut of the beast. It tries to scream out in pain but it doesn't seem to have any air in its lungs. While it's trying to regain it's breath, Yogu grabs onto one of it's horns with one hand and starts pulling at it. "YOU LITTLE BASTARD!" The Demon grabs Yogu's legs and throws him up, but he maintains a tight grip on the horn. He's swung around to the monster's back. "You aren't too bright, are ya?" He kicks off and takes the Horn with him. "GRAHHHHH!" The beast lets out a roar, grabbing at where the horn used to be. "Y-You asshole! Now I'm gonna be off-balance! What the hell're you attacking me for?!" Yogu laughs, "Ain't it obvious? I got nothing better to do, and it's fun watching big guys like you SQUIRM!" Yogu charges forward, jumping into the air and plunging the horn into the Demon's forehead. It lets out a scream and poofs into a red cloud. It floats around for a moment, then scrambles away, crawling through the crack under the door. "Huh. So if you take fatal damage when you're already dead, you just turn into a cloud? I guess that must be like, your soul or something, yeah? ...ALRIGHT WHO ELSE WANTS SOME?! ...YA KNOW WHAT, I DON'T CARE IF YOU WANT SOME OR NOT! CAUSE YOU'RE ALL GETTIN' SOME!" Yogu is definitely causing a ruckus now.
