Having done his part of rounding up the Doton and Jiton users to begin the repairs on the village, Masaru slunk away unnoticed. Despite being an ANBU and the Satetsu clan head, both of which would likely be of help in the restoration project, he just couldn't find it in him to work that hard. Besides, they didn't need him that much. What was the worst that could happen?

Whistling a lazy tune to match his mood, Masaru walked slowly through the remnants of the secondary battle with the man named "Sajin". To his knowledge there was no news of a shinobi with that name, at least not readily available to him. It was clear that he was close to Shikaji Nara and Rei Uchiha but that was little to go off of. His fingers twitched in his pockets when he thought of that woman. He wasn't necessarily a man of pride but there was something off-putting about how he felt when she appeared. It wasn't a boast or some kind of challenge, she had simply shown how much better she was than him. If not for her he would have Shikaji in custody. A long sigh left his lips as he thought of what a shame it was.

A certain smell filled the air as he walked and, without really thinking, the man followed it. Instinctively he found himself near another of the restoration projects. He nearly turned to run off from the place until he realized that the scent of food was what brought him there. The Hokori stand-in had asked some of the other Jounin to lead this facet of crowd control. He thought for a moment on what to do and decided that, while it was still work, it definitely wasn't as much as throwing around sand and stone.

Scanning the area for any familiar faces, the Satetsu finally found one. Her exposed midriff was as enticing as the smell of food as he approached. Flashing a smile that would've been reserved for longtime friends, Masaru gave a wave before clapping his hands together.

"Reporting for duty, let's feed some folk!"

Before the man approached her, Kisora had took the option to keep her away from the serving team despite her advantages in her speed. The woman had been behind the area, working on the cooking instead of coming out into the full open areas. The smell of rice and beans had been in the air but Kisora's scent of sake could easily be smelt around her. Whether it be due to the alcohol or her looks, she didn't want to catch much attention from the others around her in the broad daylight.

Yet, the peace was disturbed within the area as he came up to her, almost jumping for a second as her head turned to see him smiling right at her and clapping as if he was ready to help. The woman looked confused for a second as she remembered that he would be helping the rebuilding, then her surprise look quickly turned into an equally happy one, "Well, I hope you're ready for things to either get hot with the flames or heavy with the dishes, I'm already hiding back here," The sweat was already dripping from her forehead as she gave a friendly nod towards the man, telling him exactly how things were. She could help from being humorous at a moment like this, moving her hands away from the rice pot as she took a deep breath for a moment while wiping her forehead with her sleeve.

It was already hell when she had got there, but the missions and work didn't scream much of money for her to end up spending on more cheap sake or tobacco. Hell, even after stepping into this hell it had already made her want to head back and drink more sake while handling things back home. "So how do you wish to help here? I don't know what you'd prefer to do so I'd rather ask than assume," She asked, disturbing her own negative thoughts about their current situation within the village as the words of others had always brought her out of her own mindset. Her right hand quickly went to her hip, for once being sword-less and sake-less, as she rested for a second with her head facing downward, trying to cool down from the constant heat beating at her face from the dishes cooking for a moment.

Her initial jump of a reaction was cute, something he'd imagine unfitting of a Jounin but the woman pulled it off. That initial reaction turned into one that Masaru would quickly come to detest. He had come here to avoid work but this woman seemed happy to throw him to the fires as quickly as she could. Taking a moment to weigh the options he decided that dishes would be better than cooking. The heat of the desert was enough for him, he didn't need any more of it in his life. He frowned in a thinking way before shrugging, hands raised. "I was hoping I could be a taste tester or something like that. I suppose that's out of the question?" He asked with a hopeful glint in his eye. After the inevitable denial of that request he would sigh, shake his hands, and then remove a scroll from his bandoleer. In a display of expertise, Masaru unraveled the scroll and unsealed Karasu and Kuroari. Wooden clicks filled the air as thin lines of chakra breathed life into the puppets.

"We can do the dishes I guess, but I won't be happy about it."

As Masaru's reaction turned, Kisora got hit with the truth in a second. It caused the woman to blink for a second, as she came to realie what he wanted in a second. Her hand came up to her mouth and she let out a snicker, "Sorry, I didn't know that's why you came here! You're allowed to try all the food you want, just make sure there's enough for the people, and don't get caught, look like you're working." Her eyes glimmered for a second as she let out a wink to the man, letting him know that her own work was almost a ruse of itself. Her right foot only moved slightly, her long and flowing black hakama revealing the sake only resting beside her foot. "Just. . .let me know how I can make this more enjoyable for you. As long as some stuff still gets done, we can still have some fun," She continued with trying to make the man more comfortable in the situation, not wanting him to hate the work but to enjoy it as they got it somewhat done there was nothing to worry about. They just had to make sure they did enough for people to not come back and check on them in the tucked away corner.

"I guess everything wasn't that fun to do or were the people boring?" She asked him a question, hoping to not sour his mood more but to get to know the other presumably Jounin who had come to her hiding spot.

Raising an eyebrow, the Satetsu knew instantly that this person was cut from the same cloth as himself. He smirked and nodded, "Pretending to work is my forte. I wouldn't have made it through the ranks if I had to actually try." He took a first step when she cut him off, asking if there was anything else she could to do make his act more enjoyable. He followed the foot she had motioned with, up her leg and to her midriff before snapping his eyes to her own. "I'll keep that in mind, but for now I think we're fine." He said, causing Karasu and Kuroari to nod in unison.

Taking his spot near the dishes, the man leaned against a nearby table as his fingers danced intricately. The two puppets began to wash dishes and innately the man clicked his teeth. While this certainly was better than throwing around rocks, he couldn't help but feel that his skills were going to waste here. It was his own doing, he was more than aware, but that did little to assuage his feelings. As if she understood what he was feeling, the woman asked a simple question. Masaru frowned softly, "They seem to think that just because I'm the head of the Satetsu clan that I must love playing with sand. Truthfully the only thing I like about it is the ability to fly. It's nice, the freedom you get when your feet are no longer anchored to the ground." Not to mention the ability to look down on those ants, waiting to be squashed underfoot.

"Masaru Satetsu," he began, "I just realized I don't think we've met officially."

Kisora let out a hearty laugh as the man seemed to be not the average Jounin at all. He had more interesting qualities than the men who would just stare at her normally, but the sake seemed to not interest him. "More for me I guess!" She let out a small chuckle as her foot swiftly kicked up her bottle to her hand in one swift motion, as if the action was too natural for her as she took a swig from her bottle. Her break soon ended as her right hand reached for the heat, turning it down slowly and beginning to flip the beans from the bottom right to the top.

The heat was already making her sweat again, as Masaru began to talk of flying. The images hit her own head of doing such things yet reaching the skies seemed to be just a dream that could only burn herself if she got too close to the sun itself. It brought a small smile to her face as she nodded her head, picking up the pot of rice and emptying it into a large bowl behind her. It was a heavy amount, only set there to be transferred to the front by others when their current portions ran out to serve. Her attention turned back to him as she responded back after pondering for a moment, "I've taken the time to walk outside of these lands once and a while, through the forests of Hi no Kuni to the waters of Mizu no Kuni and mountains to climb in Tsuchi no Kuni. It's the only times that made me feel free from everything, a freedom that I couldn't feel before and anywhere before from the air to the food." Her travels had done more than spoiled her from around here, it had almost gotten to the point she had learned her way to the best views when she was traveling. The beauty that she experienced everywhere else but in the sands.

Her face almost changed color for a moment as she remembered that they had not even shared named together. Even if he had overheard it, it was not directed at him. "I am Kisora Sunba," she gave her proper response, "Nothing more and nothing less than that."

As his fingers moved the lifeless puppets Kisora's words moved him, though likely not in the way that she would have expected. He too had walked in the forests of Hi no Kuni, on missions and runs between the allied village hidden there. He had seen the waters of Mizu no Kuni and remembered the battle that had taken place on the outskirts of that land with the puppetmaster of the mist. Tsuchi no Kuni had been the spot of another such battle, where he had led many men to their deaths and handed out the same to countless opponents. Those things made her feel free? They felt like shackles around the ANBU's wrists. Shackles that threatened to take away the one thing he prided himself in.

Karasu and Kuroari shifted slightly, beginning into a rhythm that would no doubt finish the dishes soon. "Don't you think it's odd? Why someone decided, of all places, to settle down here in the desert? When so many places have such bountiful beauty we were born to a place of harshness. Grit and heat become companions for shinobi sworn to protect sandcastles." He laughed once, almost a grunt, "It's almost enough to drive ya crazy." He made no mention of the statement following her name. He knew more than most how something so small could carry so much. If she wanted to be nothing more or nothing less than he would agree. In some ways he envied her ability to be just that. His name was one connected to the village's core and his position among those with his name only exacerbated that.

"What do you think of all this? The attack that happened on our village, the war, the Kazekage's disappearance? Surely a woman like yourself has some opinions on the matter?"

"It is odd, maybe they just didn't want people to come out here? Just hidden away in sands to not be disturbed by the outside world. . ." She thought to herself for a moment, her hands stopping from the pots in front of her. Dropping the spoon lightly as she looked back as one of the people took the full pot of food to the serving areas. A light smile entered her face as her eyes turned to Masaru, watching his fingers move at a steadily. Even if she couldn't see the slightest of movements that Masaru was making, she was sure they were there. Her hands back to the spoons, stirring for a minute as her thoughts were stirring alongside her hands. "But, we can't live in that fantasy that we can never be found and that people will not travel through those heats to get to us. Our Village was destroyed by attacks despite us being so far out here," Her head turned away as she looked to the people after she finished talking. There were families holding each other and eating as if it was a dinner back in their homes, luckily for her family they were far from this but those smiles were nothing that other adults had around her while she was a child.

"But there is some beauty in the uniform colors of Sunagakure and the lands, there's a piece of it that will always be hidden and beautiful. People just don't go looking for it," She paused once again, her face almost not changing for a moment as she processed what Masaru had said to her. He asked what she thought, something that most don't ask to a random Shinobi. Hell, she didn't even live within the walls of the village for the most part. "I'm happy for those still alive after everything going down over here, I don't. . .like war. It tears everyone and everything down just for a result that we don't have any say in. It's good to be able to enjoy everything about it, but I don't see that, I'd rather enjoy the bars and help those who need it," While honest in most part, deep within Kisora was a different truth. One buried so deep that it won't see the lights of beating sun of the sands. "But, we will either see him return or someone else elected, that's how things go. We have to keep moving forward."

The puppets stopped their movements as Kisora got more and more into her response. His face grew almost impassive save for the glint in his eye. She still held some honesty and joy in her after the day's previous altercations, a redeemable quality to be certain. When she mentioned war his face changed. No longer impassive but almost somber instead. Karasu and Kuroari picked up their work again as the air filled with clinking dishes and chattering puppets. He found it funny, in a sad way, how she felt about war. "Don't you think it's fitting then?" He asked and paused for an almost-too-long moment. "War tears everything down, grinds everything down for a result that no one has a say in. It's the same as the sand. It wears down everything in it's path. Don't you think it's fitting then, that we started the war?"

His eyes closed as his weight shifted. "To Kemurigakure, to Kirigakure, and to Kumogakure, we are the same as the sand where we were born. A force seeking to erode, to break down. Is it our fate as shinobi of the sand to be as sand is? Are we destined to be a scour?" He felt it was so, but not in any negative way. It was their destiny to reshape the other villages, just as it was a rock's destiny to be reshaped. Without those forces in the world things would stagnate and collapse. Erosion made way for beautiful things, for canyons and rivers. It was the duty of sand to corrode. It was the duty of it's shinobi to do the same.
