"I bet it just makes the flavors just clash in a completely unenjoyable way," Mitsuru put a smile on her face as it seemed like things were going smoothly. While there was a part of her who would love to see what sorta things that Shikari could cook, now was definitely not the time. Maybe inviting the girl over sometime would be a better idea if she wished to show off her cooking. "But, ramen does sound like a great idea right now. I could definitely go for something with Shoyu... " Her mind trailed off for a second, "Or maybe, a miso base!" Mitsuru was already excited about the thought of what they could get.

Her attention turned completely away from Shikari, her eyes almost directly lighting up towards Tosen with excitement. Mitsuru was already to go, she wanted to eat that ramen immediately, as soon as possible!

Pleased that at least one of her suggestions had hit the mark, Shikari laughed boisterously. Her hand moved to a part of Hiroshi's neck right above the shoulder and gave it a small pinch. There was a yip followed by a puff of smoke that left the ninken looking just like the Inuzuka. Hiroshi gave the laughing girl a dagger of a look and crossed it's arms. "You know how dogs have a spot that if you scratch their leg goes nuts? It's like that, but with copying me." She explained briefly if anyone cared. Or if they didn't, whichever. Shikari wrapped her arm around Hiroshi's borrowed shoulders and shook what looked like a grumpy version of herself. "He's a little self-conscious because he's not a burly manly man when he copies me. I think he's just the cutest though." She reached up and pinched his face in her hands, wiggling it before Hiroshi snapped at it with fangs that weren't quite his own.

"I know a great place for ramen. It's this hole in the wall joint you'd skip over if you didn't know it was there. Which brings up the question, 'If you'd skip over it without having knowledge of it, how did you find it?' to which I'd reply, 'Hey, shut up.' Ah the mysteries of life." She spun on her heel, literally, a full 360. "Too far." Steadying herself, she tried again and this time did more of a 240. Hiroshi looked apologetically toward the Raikage and his wife, "I know you're doing that." Shikari called out to him before the dog rolled it's eyes and, without a spin on his heel, followed after.

Shikari walked the way water flowed downstream. It was easy but with purpose and as powerfully indifferent to the world around her as it could be. There was an underlying presence of boundless confidence in every movement, as if she were calling out to the world to look at her just so they could try and waver that confidence. After a few turns through the alleyways she stared down two thick cloth curtains that nearly blended into the surrounding wall. Throwing her arms out wide she hailed their arrival. "And this is it! The best ramen in town or lunch is on Hiroshi!"

To the Raikage's satisfaction, it seemed that Mitsuru practically lit up at the idea of ramen. That was good, and with a plan roughly settled, he was content to let Shikari lead the way to their lunch location. While A knew the layout of his village like the back of his own hand, he didn't know for certain which ramen restaurant that Shikari considered to be the best, as the genin began the process of attempting to ascertain the best directions to the location. Never before in his life did A think that he would receive a sympathetic look from a dog in such a way as this, but all he could really do in that moment was return Hiroshi's sympathetic look with one of his own.

Following the genin through a series of alleyways, it didn't take the Inuzuka long to present the two older shinobi with what was proudly boasted as the best ramen in town. A wondered about the veracity of that claim, though he did not inherently trust or doubt its accuracy. If it was an inaccurate characterization, Shikari claimed, then the food would be paid for by Hiroshi. At this, A shot the dog a cursory glance, raising an eyebrow at the canine as if asking if such a thing were accurate. After a moment, however, the Raikage reached out a long arm and pushed passed the cloth curtains and moved into the establishment itself.

Stepping into the restaurant, the Raikage held the cloth open so that Mitsuru and Shikari could enter after him. He was unsure if Hiroshi planned to eat at the bar with the rest of them or not, so he only lingered for a second to see if the ninken would do so before closing the curtain behind him and moving to take a seat at the counter, choosing the rightmost seat in the establishment, right by the wall. The small stools were a little small for someone of his height, but he made do as best as he was able, glancing to the two women as they took their seats. He didn't eat that much ramen, so he opted not to order first, figuring to let the two more experienced foodies take their picks, and then he could mimic the style of their orders.

With no objections, Mitsuru decided to follow the girl alongside of Tosen. But, things didn't go as fast as desired for a second. The Inuzuka seemed to like to talk a lot. But, by a lot, it was more so in a way about things that didn't matter entirely at the moment. While the appreciation of memories could only go so far, Mitsuru didn't want to speak up about such things. Today was going to be a good day and she didn't want to change it off that course. Along with being out of this alleyway was another driving factor to say nothing at the moment, but her eyes remained hopefully switching between the two. "I can't wait to see the place!" Mitsuru responded once Shikari was done.

It didn't take too long after following the strange paths that Shikari had taken, but it didn't bother Mitsuru entirely as much as it could if there wadsn't food at the end of the tunnel in this for her. Especially good food at the end of the tunnel. Plus, it was an afternoon to spend some time to spend with Tosen with neither of them doing some sort of work at the same time. It was a different kind of afternoon and as such, no matter what she did, she didn't want to ruin it by doing anything. They eventually ended up with some work, but today Mitsuru hoped that nothing of the sort would happen.

As they followed the Inuzuka to the destination, they ended up at a small sorta restraunt, more like a hole in the wall that people didn't normally pay attention to. Is this... a hidden gem of a place?! I have never been here before! Mitsuru's eyes glimmered as they approached closer to the place, only for it to be true. Tosen seemed to take the initiative of letting the girls in, and Mitsuru accepted and waited a moment. As soon as Tosen took a seat, Mitsuru immediately took the one next to him. She wanted to remain close to him at least to take a peak and share her excitement if they food was that good. "Hmm... what is good here?" She asked the Inuzuka, hopefully she was nearby enough for her to be able to give Mitsuru some ideas on what was good at this place.

"Ramen." Shikari answered bluntly to Mitsuru's question regarding the food. As she did her hand shot up to gain the attention of the cook. "Ah, Raikage-sama, to what do I owe this pleasure?" The gruff, middle-aged chef asked with a bow. Minding her manners, the Inuzuka waited for an answer before getting back to the task at hand lest Mitsuru wither and fade away. "I would like an order of hakata ramen with extra pork and an order of nagoya ramen." She held up two fingers that quickly pointed to herself and the copy of herself. "Excuse my sister, she's painfully shy so probably won't say much." Hiroshi eyed her with a gaze that would wilt most flowers. Shikari was unmoved by the expression having seen it more times than she could possibly count.

Her mouth nearly watered at the thought of the nagoya. This place was well-known, if you knew about it at all, for the heat behind it's ramen. They said it put hair on your chest but no matter how many bowls Shikari ate she still lacked fur under her collarbones. As she lamented her follicle ineptitude she turned to the Raikage and his wife. "Hey, thanks for eating with us. It's only been Hiroshi and me for a long time but it's nice to share food with others. Meals are meant to be shared, that's what I think."

For all his many strange culinary experiences, of which there were a handful, A couldn't say he had ever so literally shared a table with a dog before, as Shikari's doppelganger joined them at the bar. "Just stopping by for lunch," the man simply answered. Mitsuru took the seat to A's immediate left, as he would have expected, and as he watched Shikari order, his left hand naturally came to rest ontop of Mitsuru's right. It wasn't the most outspoken gesture, but given that the two often kept from touting their relationship in public, it served as a subtle but pleasant affirmation as he softly squeezed her hand with his own.

Eventually, after a moment of recounting his own somewhat limited knowledge of the varieties of ramen, the Raikage came to a decision regarding his choice of midday meal. "Kitakata ramen, extra large, with pork, bamboo shoots, fish cake, and two eggs." It was a large order, but then again, he was a large man. As he finished his order, he glanced around and snagged quickly a pair of wooden chopsticks, dexterously snapping them apart with a single hand. He twirled them through his fingers, treating them not unlike he would a kunai, before sliding them into place between his fingers and giving them two quick, testing clicks. Satisfied, as Mitrusu was placing her own order, the Raikage would teasingly lift the chopsticks up and click them in her direction, before reaching out and moving to softly pinch her nose with them.

Mitsuru took a second, the appeal of heat wasn't too great for the woman so putting together an order became a chore. But, there was at least some break when Tosen had placed his hand over hers. The woman's head moved, turning towards him as she slightly nodded right after when a smile entered into her face. Even if things went wrong somewhere down the line, it would be okay. She turned her face to the chef and started to give her order last, "I would like some Shōyu Ramen, with extra braised pork, bean sprouts, green onion, and seaweed." She felt satisfied for a moment before her face turned back over to A.

It only took a second for his attack to begin. Her instant reaction was to pull up one chopstick and put it between but it wasn't enough to stop it from pinching her nose. After all, her nose wasn't as thin as a chopstick and would be very strange if it was. A flushed pink entered her face before she turned slightly away with a slightly pouting look on her face. It felt strange to do this, maybe if they were just only in front of the chef it would be fine, but they were also in front of one of the village's Genin. Mitsuru slowly looked over towards her and nodded her head; While Tosen didn't directly respond to her, Mitsuru would. "No problem, I completely agree there. I don't tend to share much meals with people outside of A and his brother, so another face is a really nice change," Mitsuru gave the girl a polite response. The Inuzuka didn't seem to be joking like she normal was with her stories and such, so it was a nice change from hearing those.

"You guys sure are cute." She laughed before splitting her own pair of chopsticks and turning to Hiroshi. As if the ninken knew what was coming next he gave a solemn shake of his head that did enough to stop Shikari from doing the same as the Raikage had. She pouted but relented, turning back to Mitsuru as she talked about the usual dinner guests. Shikari cocked her head inquisitively, a motion she probably picked up from Hiroshi. "What's it like having a sibling?" She asked earnestly. While Hiroshi was a wonderful companion he wasn't her brother, or her sister given his current look. She would listen intently, drawing in the response given to her like water to a sponge. Her eyes would seem to sparkle.

"What about you, Lady Mitsuru, d'you have any brothers or sisters?"

Mitsuru blushed pink and turned away from the assault of the Raikage's chopsticks. Victory complete, A was satisfied and lowered the eating utensils down, setting them back onto the countertop with a soft click. Normally he would not be so affectionate in public, but inside the empty, out-of-the-way ramen bar, they were mostly secluded enough that he didn't resist the urge to be at least a little corny. He had already taken the day off of work, so A was already somewhat out of the norms that he usually followed, anyway. Shikari made a comment about how cute he and Mitsuru were as a couple, and A gave a slight grunt of acknowledgement. When the Inuzuka asked what it was like to have a sibling, the Raikage's eyes shifted, turning to examine the genin.

It was a question that A didn't have to even think for a moment on before answering. "Hard." His reply was almost instantaneous. The Raikage's eyes glanced upwards in thought, as he reflected on Bii. "But gratifying. Bii has been a pain in the past, but..." A trailed off for a moment, eyes flicking back to look at the genin, then slightly turned to look at the hidden village that lie beyond the cloth that marked the entrance of the ramen stand. "I don't know where I would be without him. I'm A and he is Bii, that says it all."

Mitsuru's defeat was taken personally by her as her head lowered, only to be asked about her family. But more specifically her siblings. Mitsuru's back straightened as she got fully back up and nodded her head. She let Tosen finish talking about Bii before she even decided to get started, "I guess... I would have been closer if they were closer to my age. They were not exactly around when all... all the smithing was required from me when I was younger. So they never really were forced to do as much and were able to more so do what they desired in life, not that I can argue. I'm still doing what I wished to do," Mitsuru's response wasn't completely put together, not much people asked about her siblings, "I do have a lot of cousins that are closer to my age." The woman scratched the side of her head as she slightly raised herself to try to look past the counter at the chef's work then lowered back down. She was already anxious and ready for their food to come out. It would only be a matter of time.

Biting her tongue that it was B that would know where it'd be without A, you know, the alphabet and all that, Shikari just nodded in agreement. "Well that certainly was informative and I think we're all better people for having shared with each other." She grinned widely, baring her fangs as she usually did. Hiroshi drummed it's borrowed fingers against the table eliciting an immediate drumming of Shikari's in similar fashion.

"So, you know, I'm a Genin, you're a Kage and his wife and all that." She started nonchalantly. "How did you get from my spot to yours? I know it kind of runs in the family for at least one of you but why you over Bii?" She raised an inquisitive eyebrow. While she waited for the next round of questions to be answered she couldn't help but notice that the chef was finishing up on their orders.

For a moment, A's face tightened. He focused a bit so as to make it relax again, but the definite pause was noticeable. The question fielded by the genin touched on something that was definitely a sore spot for the Raikage. It was a question that he, himself, sometimes wondered about the answer to. His jaw set in place in a momentary silence, as he had no immediate answer to give in response to Shikari's question. It was good that A was no longer holding the chopsticks, for if he was they might have split in half in his sudden tight grip.

"I was the elder," came his answer, feeling more an excuse than a reason. "Things were expected of me." That answer felt more like the truth, though he dare not touch on whether or not he had actually risen to those expectations, or even what they were. Still, even that answer felt more like a statement of fact than it was an assertion of some kind of truth. It wasn't the answer that he would have given if he was asked the question in public. It felt more accurate than that.

Mitsuru's hand that remained underneath his left the grasp, taking itself on top of his as her face shifted to the side to face towards him instead of the female genin. Her eyes narrowed for a second and then closed as she let out a sigh. "Bii does his best, just as the rest of us do. I never stopped working towards getting where I am, even if it was going to be a break for me... I would be working the forge by the night with my mother and father. It was what was required of us at the time, and what was required for me as I was growing up," Mitsuru's gaze slowly switched over towards Shikari as she let out a laugh at the end and finished up, "So, unlike some of us, you get to relax more, ya know? So enjoy that while you can." The white haired woman then faced back towards Tosen with her head tilting to the left. Her hand became more firm over the top of his in return, trying to get him to calm down. She was there right now, at least that would maybe help.

While no one would claim Shikari was an expert in social cues she wasn't ignorant enough to not see that her question had been one she likely shouldn't have asked. She turned her attention to Mitsuru, thankful that there was something to respond to that didn't feel so heavy. "Relax? Me? Pft, as if. If I relaxed I wouldn't ever be more than what I am today. I can always be a little bit better tomorrow in some minor way. I should be better tomorrow, not because I'm worse than others today, but because I am not everything I should be. I can relax when I reach the goals I have set for myself, until then though I'll just take small breaks for lunch." She gave a wink and a nod to herself, happy with how her views came out.

The sound of bowls hitting their table split the suddenly serious mood as the ramen was placed in front of everyone. Shikari's hands slapped together as she and Hiroshi gave a small bow. The two seemed to hold their pose for longer than usual. Shikari's mouth moving quietly, uttering something unheard before she grinned again. "Let's dig in shall we? We can talk again on a full stomach!"

In truth, the Raikage felt awkward and slightly vulnerable in the moment of silence that came after his speaking. Fortunately, Mitsuru was there to guide along the conversation to less sensitive issues. It made A a bit more dour, but his mood was salvaged from being entirely ruined by Mitsuru, who placed her hand atop his. It helped calm him down slightly, allowing him at least to pour his focus onto the ramen that was placed on the table. Instinctively his hands produced the chopsticks from before, twirling them in his hand with a level of ingrained mastery that spoke to the results of extensive training, the wooden sticks twirling between his fingers as if he were willing them about with his mind alone.

After a few twirls he let them come to rest comfortably in his grip. He didn't say the usual ittadakimasu, as others might, but instead gave a grunt of recognition to the food, a thankful noise to the chef as he prodded the noodles in his bowl with his chopsticks. Grabbing a few noodles, he brought them up to his lips and took a long slurp, before biting into the long, chewy noodles and separating them in half. He pulled the rest up into his mouth with the chopsticks and then began to chew, enjoying the pleasantly smooth but unctuousness of the broth, along with the texture of the fresh noodles. Shikari was right, the ramen was quite good. Some of the best that he might have had in his life, certainly at least the best that A could recall in that moment.

He let his gaze slide to the two lunch partners that he was sharing the meal with, observing their reactions to their food. For his own part, after finishing his mouthful, he would speak a simple "It's good," which might not have seemed like high praise at first, but for Mitsuru who oft cooked for the Raikage, it was an obvious sign from an otherwise quiet man that he quite enjoyed the food.

With the two settled in and the ramen delivered, Mitsuru nodded her head as her hand pulled away as he started to get himself together for his meal. Her head kept turning between the two, especially after the tone shift that the conversation went through. The smell had made her stomach rumble, the woman was so excited for the food as her hands finally went to her chopsticks after everyone else. Mitsuru looked at both of them one last time before her gaze would finally leave from the conversation and focus on the food, her hands breaking the chopsticks apart with ease. The woman's head nodded as a slight head bow finished off her ritual, it was time to dig into the food. A large smiled enter onto her face as her chopsticks moved closer.

Let's see how this tastes! Mitsuru's chopsticks entered as the grabbed onto the noodles and pulled them out of the broth with ease as she shoved the middle into her mouth. The warmth of the soup hit her immediately along with that soy-sauce base being extremely flavorful. It might have been a bit too salty, but the salt was a big thing about bringing out of the flavor of the pork broth that was mixed together. Her hands went to the spoon, pulling it closer as she got a larger amount of it. It was delicious, maybe not the best in the world but could be one of the best within Kumogakure. The chopsticks were picked up once again as she moved over to the seaweed as she pushed it down into the broth, trying to add even more flavor to the mixture. Her head perked up as she gave a slight nod, her trance of being distracted by food broken by Tosen saying that the food was good. Mitsuru leaned back up and coughed for a moment as she responded, "Yes, thank you for taking us here, Shikari-san. I hope yours came out as well as ours."

Surprisingly Hiroshi was used to eating with chopsticks as Shikari may or may no have forced him to eat lunch with her in similar fashion once or ten times before. The two tore into their meal with gusto. The Raikage gave the place a small bit of praise and Mitsuru thanked her for taking them there, which could only mean lunch wasn't on Hiroshi after all. Taking in deep, sucking breaths to counter the sudden heat of her ramen, Shikari nodded happily. "Told you it was the best in town." She took in another, ventilating breath. "It tastes great and it's that kind of hot that makes you go hoo, hoo, haaaaaaaa after each bite. I love food like that, don't you?" There was a small pause in Hiroshi's eating. "Oh and Hiroshi says his tastes great too." Shikari leaned in a little, "He says most things taste great though so you can't really trust his opinion."

WHOMP

Hiroshi pulled back his borrowed hand, leaving Shikari grinning and rubbing the back of her head. She looked around the full table and couldn't help but laugh. It had been years since she ate like this. It was a bittersweet moment, but thankfully those were both flavors that the Inuzuka enjoyed.

It seemed that everyone - even the chopstick wielding dog - enjoyed the ramen. The moment was a strange one, a mixture of serene and tranquil that almost made A want to laugh. Certainly, at least, this was not how he would have predicted the day to go. Watching Shikari talk - almost more than she ate - and watching Hiroshi respond was almost enough to make A laugh, though he kept his composure as well as he could as he took a few more quick bites of his ramen. The fact that the food was so good was almost a surprise, given that the place didn't seem more popular than it was. Another several bites - he ate quickly, as a natural state - and he felt himself begin to relax a little bit more. In small moments like these it really reinforced what the village meant, what it was about, and why the Raikage was meant to protect it.

"Thank you."

The talk between them had slowed down due to eating that they were all engulfed in, but it didn't stop them way too much from saying things between their bites. But, that was much harder for Mitsuru to do with her empty stomach that was getting filled up quickly by the tasty noodles. A large smile remained on her face as she shoveled them deeper into her mouth. Her chopsticks pulled apart the seaweed she shoved to the bottom to split it into every bite she took. The onion was well saturated with the broth and it lent it's flavor easily to the rest of the meal. There was not breaks for the woman as she ate, she didn't want to take a break. But, her enjoyment was easy to see of her meal.

She pulled back to take another breath as she decided to respond to Shikari finally, "I'm not... much of a spicy person. My stomach can't handle it at all. It's not too fun because it prevents me from trying certain things, but I can still eat very tasty things without it being spicy." Her hand reached over towards Tosen as she lightly rubbed his forearm before pulling away back to her eating, nothing could distract her from finishing all of it and filling that void that was in her stomach.

"Ughuh?" She mumbled around a mouthful of noodles at Mitsuru. Saying she got to taste many delicious things and then touching her husband in front of a Genin? How risque! She gave the woman a knowing nod but hoped it stayed at that. She looked to be the first to finish her meal with Hiroshi coming in a close second. The ninken-turned-Inuzuka gave his bowl a wistful look but Shikari knew he was too full for anything more. It was more the flavor he missed. She began the process of fanning her tongue and hoo, hoo, haaaaaing the heat to a tolerable level before she spoke up again.

"As a thanks for enjoying the meal with us, Hiroshi and I will cover the bill!" She clapped her hands together, rubbing them excitedly. "That way I can say you're in my debt and I can brag about that basically forever. Besides, you pay my living expenses anyway so it's kind of like you paid for the meal in a roundabout way so I won't hear anything about it, kay?" She grinned widely, throwing an arm around Hiroshi who awkwardly attempted to return the gesture.

When Mitsuru gently touched his arm after making a comment about spicy food, A almost felt singled out. He knew, and he knew she knew, that he enjoyed spicy food. They didn't eat it at home that often, since Miturus couldn't handle it. Generally, his intake of spicy food was limited to the addition of hotsauce or chili oil onto whatever was cooked for dinner that night. Still, that definitely didn't mean that he didn't enjoy Mitsuru's cooking. On the contrary, it was his favorite food to eat, though sometimes he felt like she liked to tease him for his enjoyment of hot things. When Shikari practically choked on her noodles however, A's eyes widened slightly as he realized the possible interpretation of Mitsuru's statement, and the Raikage's face flushed the slightest bit of pink before he grunted and turned to hide his face by looking at the wall.

When Shikari said that she planned to pay for the meal, A turned his head back to the rest of the group. It was his initial instinct to protest - he was a grown man, having his meal paid for by a child seemed inappropriate - though she argued semi-convincingly, that he was practically paying for the meal in a roundabout way. Still, it was only semi-convincing. "No, we'll pay for it."

Mitsuru's eating was then interrupted by the misinterpretation of what she said, it wasn't anything down that route as she almost wanted to spit out her ramen immediately. She didn't mean it in that way at all, but it somehow went that way through the genin's mind. Mitsuru's head hung for a moment, breaking her away from her eating. She let out a sigh as she responded to the reaction, "T-That's not what I meant, Inuzuka-san. I'm sorry that I didn't speak well enough to relay what I meant." The woman reached back and away from her food, moving her hands behind her head as she began to tie up her hair. She wanted it out of the way so she could finish this meal as fast as possible.

The meal began to get shoveled down her mouth and straight into her stomach, the enjoyment was not as much as before when she was taking her time to get down. The others had seemed to finish before the woman, maybe conversation and eating was not a strong suit of the woman. But, it was enjoyable to have a meal with others. She raised her head after she finished and pitched into the conversation, "Yes, don't worry about it! A can handle it... I'd pitch in but I don't think he'd let me." Mitsuru let out a small chuckle after as she looked to Tosen and asked, "What's your plan after this?"

Raising an inquisitive eyebrow, Shikari leaned back into her seat. On one hand she had said she'd hear nothing of either of them paying for the bill, on the other hand, free food. At the end of the day there would always be a clear victor.

"Yeah, sure." She said with a dismissive wave and a smile, patting Hiroshi on the leg with the other hand. From what Mitsuru said this seemed to be a common occurrence of which Shikari could jump to many conclusions. Either the Raikage was all about chivalry or he was a misogynist, scary how easy it would be to mistake those things for one another.

Wife turned to husband and asked what the rest of his plans for the day were. As Shikari was not included in that question, she felt like that was a cue that she and her companion should hit the road. While it was fun hanging out with powerful figures, she was just a Genin after all. Giving the table of empty bowls a last, longing look, she bowed her head.

"We appreciate your time. We should do this again, I'll have my people call your people." She grinned, all teeth and sincerity, and stood to take her leave, Hiroshi following close behind.

Without too much of a fight, the genin relented about the payment, and A produced a few pieces of cash, seemingly from nowhere, and handed it over to the owner behind the counter. It had been a pleasant experience, A didn't usually eat out like this, and generally his meals consisted of either just himself in the office, though sometimes with Mitsuru or Bii. Having a meal with someone else entirely was a foreign experience, but definitely not a bad one. He let out a slight smile, giving a nod to Shikari as she mentioned doing this again sometime. He made no promises, but the thought wasn't exactly a bad one, given what he knew already of team assignments for the village. Once Shikari had left, the Raikage turned to look at his wife.

"I've already left the office for the day. I don't really feel like going back... I suppose I'll post the team assignments for the genin, and then meet with my new team." It was an interesting thought, being a teacher. It almost made A a little bit nervous, since he had never done it before, but he shook those feelings away. "Want to join me? Unless you want to go and meet your genin."

With Shikari's departure from the shop, it was just left with her and Tosen for a moment. It felt nice to get some alone time even if there was one onlooker of the chef, but the privacy was enough for Mitsuru for now. She let out a sigh as she rubbed her forehead, she was embarrassed enough from her blunder earlier. But, the woman was happy enough to have a great and relaxing lunch away from the forge for a bit. Tosen had offered out the idea of meeting their teams. Mitsuru's eyebrow raised as she thought for a second. The idea was interesting but what sort of thing could she even teach? It had been a while since she had genin under her wing, so maybe Tosen could be of some help.

"It has been a while, I would say. I could come and join you with my genin as a sort of joint learning session. It has been a while for myself, and I'm afraid of messing up." She offered out the idea, then expanded on it further, "Plus, I could see what your genin would potential need in the weapons department so I can get a head start there for them and yourself, alongside my own genin. If any of them seem interested, I could teach them about the craft too." It was what Mitsuru was best at doing, making weapons for people. The more she could see about their skills, the better weapons she could make for them.
