The last couple of days were rough on Yogu. He had spent most of his time wandering around Hell and asking around for Konatsians. To almost no surprise at all, that wasn't getting him anywhere. Each time he was met with confused looks and told to buzz off. Except for that one time, three days ago. Three days ago, he had asked a pack of vacationing Ogres about where he could find any type of group that had a lot of Konatsians in it. Surprisingly, they did! But it was a whole three days of flying to get there, with no breaks! And time felt like it worked differently in Otherworld. It almost felt like a day here was ten days on Earth! And he was attacked by demon after demon on his way there! Those guys just really didn't want to give him a break! But it was only going to get harder from here on out, and Yogu knew that. He was fully prepared for anything the bowels of Hell would throw at him! He was going to make sure Monster was completely erased from his body! Or soul! Or whatever it is that Monster is latching onto to remain intact. No matter the cost!
Yogu was told that the "village" of Konatsians was at the base of the Ashen Mountains. But that didn't give him much of an idea of where they were. The Ashen Mountains were a HUUUUGE area! It took him a whole five hours to find the camp they were talking about! Yogu lands just outside the camp, which seems to be a ghost town. There are a few tents scattered around in the same area, and some paths made out of some weird looking gravel. "I guess this is the place. Not exactly anywhere else it could be." Yogu grumbled to himself. As he got closer to the camp, it felt less and less like a ghost town. He could hear snoring coming from one tent, laughing from another, and smoke quickly followed by the smell of incense coming from a third tent. Yogu says, "I wonder which one is going to have the old, mystical person who will give me allllllll the answers I'm searching for." As if it wasn't a dead giveaway. Yogu entered the incense tent to see two Konatsians sitting in a tent. There was a TV on the ground and they were playing Serpent Master EX 6. "Huh? Who're you? Did you come for the elder or something? They're somewhere else... Get outta here man, ya got big stressy energy comin' off ya. We're trying to chill."
Yogu walks out of the tent grumbling to himself saying things like, "Stressy energy? I'll give you stressy energy, asshole!" and "At least I don't spend all my time sitting around playing video games!" Which was quite hypocritical, considering up until he ran away from home that's pretty much all he did. Yogu went across the way and entered the tent that he could hear someone snoring from. He peaks his head in to see an old looking space elf, who was fast asleep. The only strange thing was that the old space elf was sleeping while standing up! "H-Hello?" Yogu was answered by more snoring. "HELLO?!" The old Konatsian just kept on sleeping. Yogu then tried all sorts of things to wake the old man up. Like pouring a bucket of water on his head. Or picking him up and shaking him. He even lit the end of his nose hairs on fire! But all of those things seemed to do absolutely nothing. Yogu let out a big sigh, absolutely defeated. "How am I supposed to beat Monster if the guy who's supposed to help me won't even get up! My one chance in all of Hell to possibly find a way out of being stuck with this bastard is in a freakin' coma! This is so STUPID!" Utterly defeated, Yogu couldn't even bother to keep himself standing, instead choosing to lean on the elder's unconscious body.
But Yogu leaning on him is finally the thing that woke the elder up! "AHHHH!" The scream makes Yogu jump back and almost fall over. "Hey! What the hell man! I thought you were in a coma or somethin'! How the hell do you fall asleep standin' up anyway?!" The elder wasn't even looking at Yogu, instead, he was staring at the opposite wall of the tent. "HEY! Why the hell're you ignoring me, man?! Answer me dammit!" Yogu finally gets the old man's attention by grabbing onto his shoulder. The elder looks over his shoulder, "Oh! Hiya there! Were ya sayin' somethin' there pal?" Yogu sighed, this guy wasn't really the elder, right? "So you're some sort of Konatsian elder that can help me with getting rid of my demons right?" The old Konatsian laughed, "Hohoho! Nah, I'm just some old guy. I used to clean up the trash in my village back when I was alive. I wish I was the elder." Yogu did notice a strange smell in the air when he had entered. He now realized it was the horrid smell of garbage. "EW! WHAT THE HELL?! HOW DO YOU SMELL THAT BAD! YOU'RE A GHOST! HOW DO YOU EVEN GIVE OFF A SMELL?!" The elder laughed again. "Ah, when I was alive I stole lotta stuff from people when I came to collect garbage. So an Ogre casted a spell on me that always made me smell. Pretty gross, eh sonny?" Yogu was kind of surprised that this old man stole from people. "You don't seem the type to go stealing stuff." The old man shrugs, "We're all down 'ere for a reason, sonny." Wait, why the hell was Yogu even talking to this guy?! He wasn't making any progress in completing his goal at all! He was just talking to some garbage man! "Well, do you know where I can find this elder guy?" The old man nodded, "Yep, he's at the top of that there mountain! He's always hanging out there, practicin' his magic and whatnot. Weird guy. He can probably help you with yer indigestion or whatever ya got goin' on."
"Well, that was a big waste of time." Is what Yogu had thought at first. But after a little bit, he thought about it, that old guy helped him quite a lot! Without him, Yogu probably would've never found out about this Konatsian elder guy on top of the Ashen Mountains! "ALRIGHT! Let's get to the top of this damn mountain and get rid of this damn demon already!" Yogu took off into the air and began his short flight to the top of the mountain. But once he got about halfway up, an incredibly powerful gust of wind blew him back! By the time he hit the ground, he was back at the base of the mountain. "Oh... COME ON! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! IS THIS THAT ELDER GUY DOING THIS?! IS HE REALLY GONNA MAKE ME CLIMB THIS WHOLE MOUNTAIN?!" Yogu, ever persistent, tried flying up the mountain a couple more times, to no avail. "DAMN IT! Fine then! I'll play your game, you shitty elder guy! Why would you even wanna be called elder? Just means you're old." Yogu got another gust of wind slamming him into the ground for that one.
"This is gonna suck."
Yogu got back up and started his on-foot climb up the mountain.
OOC: Long starting post lol. The other ones aren't going to be as long. This was originally a solo but I thought turning this into an Open would be a better way to end Yogu's whole Monster arc. This post will also be acting as my going ghost/departure post thing, by the end of this thread I plan for Yogu to become a ghosty boi and leave Hell.
