Yui had left the room in haste as Kyousuke had asked of her. By now the war was likely to be well underway. She waited in one of the first floor rooms for her team, or at least part of them. Some were probably well on their way. She had troubled feelings about this war, but would likely come because Kyousuke asked. She worried about Shingen, as she hasn't seem him around in a while. No matter, she'd figure all that out later.
As Yuuma had been exiting his match, the Hokage had made his public appearance and declaration of war. The news was unsettling to the monk, but he didn't have enough information. Wars were crucial in the balance of power in the world after all; they were inherently good or evil. The genin had seen a glimpse of what looked like his sensei in the crowd, and he manuevered his way through to find her. If anyone had an inkling of what to do next, it would be her. As he walked in the room, he would give a prompt half-bow and then a greeting. "Yui-sensei, what is happening regarding this war? I'm not sure where the rest of my team is, but they were safe the last time I saw them. Do you have any information?"

Rensu was disturbed by the prospect of war. Not because he was against the war necessarily (for he trusted the judgment of the Kazekage), but because he wasn't sure if he was ready for such a thing. He was far too weak to be of any service. These Chuunin Exams proved that. He made his way over to his step-mother Yui, wondering if she could give any more information about what was going on. But more importantly- a part of him just needed his mom right now. He felt totally useless. Maybe she would have a way to cheer him up.Rensu was disturbed by the prospect of war.

But more importantly- a part of him just needed his mom right now. He felt totally useless. Maybe she would have a way to cheer him up.
Arriving on the scene in his usual attire- Rensu stood in front of his step-mother with his head down. He was ashamed. "Hello...Yui-san...," he would mutter softly and timidly. "I didn't do so well, huh? Father will likely be upset whenever he comes home...,"
The sound of crinkling plastic filled the air as Murasakibara approached the group, a bag of potato chips in his hands. He reached into it, pulling out a chip and snapping it off into his mouth with an audible crisp crunch. "Hey Yuchin, we're not in this right? Doesn't really seem like the monk thing to do. That and there aren't many Kemuri people here anyway, the whole thing seems boring." His words were as lazy as ever despite the tense atmosphere. Chewing slowly, he looked down to Rensu, his eyes fixated on the boy. "You did the best you could with the talent that you have Suchin. That bug girl was just better than you were, there's no shame in being crushed by a stronger opponent. We won anyway, we were the better team."
He took another chip in his large hands, the entire snack disappearing into his mouth in one go. Looking around he noticed that one of the four was missing, the girl with the sand. "Where is Ayachin?"
I forgot to mention Kyon Kyon was in the room too, but he was as well. He was playing quietly in the corner, his face somewhat sad. It was apparent to Yui he was trying to ignore the adult conversation they were having right now. Yuuma was the first to arrive, asking if she had more information about the upcoming war. She nodded solemnly after giving him a bow of greeting, confirming his suspicions. “Yes, we are going to war,” she said quietly. “That is part of the reason I wanted to gather you all; I needed to make sure you were safe and ready first.” She wouldn’t continue with anymore information until they were all in there; it was a thing the whole group needed to hear. Rensu came in next, standing in front of Yui and hanging his head. The next words out of his mouth were gut wrenching, so much that it took the breath right out of her. He didn’t know. Of course he didn’t; she’d only just had it confirmed herself. She put one hand over her mouth, giving a glare to Atsushi for his insensitive words, and then her expression turning to one of sadness. She didn’t know what to say. She didn’t even feel like she could say anything. The very wind was knocked out of her, and she took deep, shuddering breaths. She put her other hand on the back of Rensu’s head, ruffling his hair gently. If her eyes met his, he’d find tears in them.
“Onii-chan,” Kyo said quite softly, the small boy moving to Rensu’s leg and pulling on his clothes. Yui looked down at the boy, and nearly felt her soul break. Her son’s face was one of pure sadness. “Chichi isn’t coming home.” And then the boy broke out into a wailing cry. Yui, moving quickly as a mother does, quickly swept him up in her arms and squeezed the crying boy tightly. She herself had tears forming in the corners of her eyes, but right now she realized she needed to be strong. For her sons and her students, she couldn’t mourn at the moment. There would be time for that later. She took a deep breath as Kyo’s wails became sniffles and turned to Rensu. “Something happened to Satoru during his last mission, Rensu-chan. I’m so sorry,” she said in barely a whisper, her voice calm and comforting. Kyo would wiggle in her arms, and she’d let him down. The boy would then move to hug his adoptive brother around the legs, still sniffling.
Yui turned her attention to the others in the room. “Ayane went with the Kazekage. Sunagakure is mobilizing as we speak, and many others have already started heading in that direction. I will be following suit, but may not spend much time on the front lines for… obvious personal reasons. You both performed very well in the exams, and I would be happy to see you serve your country further. I will be packing us up and heading out soon, if you want to join.” She turned her attention back to Rensu, worried how he would be taking all of this news.

OOC: It’s been over 2 weeks so uh… I’ll post.
Rensu ignored the stuff about the war, he had no real interest in it. He would follow whatever orders Kyousuke gave, but he wasn’t happy about it. Why were they fighting a war? He hadn’t heard of any incidents with Kemurigakure, it just seemed so out of left field. Did that make them barbarians? He only knew he didn’t agree with it. But he kept his mouth shut and did his duty.
Rensu turned to Murasaki, who did nothing to alleviate his spirits. In fact he actually found a way to make Rensu feel even worse. And by doing that he had turned disappointment and shame into anger and resentment. “You’re wrong! Something was off about that girl… she was performing ninjutsu without hand seals… and then that weird Ninjutsu or Genjutsu that paralyzed me.
It’s possible she was using a summon like I do that I couldn’t see… or maybe has the ability to use Ninjutsu without hand seals (though that’s less likely). Whatever the case - she simply caught me off guard. It takes a lot of energy to protect other people constantly…,” he said with an annoyed expression. He spent so much energy trying to protect them from those bugs because they didn’t possess Ninjutsu, and he was trying to tell Rensu he sucked compared to that girl? Nah he didn’t believe it.
“I simply had to spend too much chakra and focus keeping her from you three.
So shut up,” Rensu would say harshly. It was evident that the Monk had pissed him off. He’d be happy to take on the Monk and prove that he could win in a fight. He doubted the Monk would do very well against his Scorch Release. “Unless you’d like to access my ‘talent’ yourself.”
He was perfectly willing to engage.
But the conversation was cut short by Yui, who interrupted them. She placed her hand on the back of his head, ruffling his hair. His face softened as he looked at her tear-filled eyes. What was he missing? Why was she crying? He had never thought Yui-san was capable of crying, that she was stronger than such things. He looked down at Kyon Kyon, his little brother, who pulled on his clothes. Why was he sad too? What was going on? What didn’t Rensu know?
And then his heart broke into shattered glass.
He was devastated with the news of Satoru Sunba. Even the Monks should know who that was to both Yui and Rensu. The former’s husband and the latter’s father (though adoptive). Rensu could only step back for a few moment, gaining some distance between Yui, Kyon Kyon, and the Akatsura.
“Oh…,” Rensu would mutter… trying to process it all. He had always silently disagreed with Satoru’s methods, and partially resented him for pushing away Tori. But at the same time he had respected him, loved him. He had raised Rensu. To him he had always been his father, the only father he had ever known. Had. Had known. My god…. It then just hit him.
He didn’t have a father anymore. The realization of that reality was making him crumble, making him fall apart. He fell on his knees, feeling them buckle under a heavy weight. “I can’t.. I…,” he continued to mumble sensibly, his words making no sense to anyone. didn’t know what to say. A million emotions were pouring through him right now, all hitting him. He couldn’t breathe. This huge pit in his stomach wouldn’t let him. He was devastated.
But a shinobi wasn’t allowed to cry… So what were they supposed to do when their whole world shattered?
He wasn't even given the time to grieve... They had a war to fight now. "Very well....," he would say coldly as his eyes looked down.
He left then and there for Kemurigakure. Not even bothering to wait up for the others. He was going alone.
Looking down at the boy, the monk couldn't help but sigh as he started complaining. That kind of attitude grated on him the most, it was one thing to fail, it was another to project that failure onto someone or something else. He took a handful of chips and munched through them quickly as Rensu finished up.
"You lost, Suchin, and now you sound like a child. It's fine to lose, it's a part of life but I can't stand when people get all worked up over something so insignificant as being outclassed. She was born with more talent than you, that's merely black and white. You can make excuses why you lost, but you still lose in the end. I removed the bugs from myself without you." He raised the bag to his face, shaking the crumbs into his open mouth.
"Accessing your talent would be a waste of time. I've seen it already."
He didn't show any sign of aggravation or ill intent, rather just a look of utter boredom. Threats were only threatening if you could back them up. Digging into his bag of sweets, he produced a box of chocolates and began to fiddle with the tab to open it as the news was dropped on the shinobi in front of him.
After talking to Suchin, he had already surmised that logic was not the driving factor of the guy. He would've reminded him that death was inevitable and that it was merely a cycle. His father's death was just the step toward his rebirth which itself was merely a step toward Nirvana. He would say that if Suchin would have listened.
"Mmm," he mumbled around a mouthful of chocolate as he watched Suchin dart off toward what was likely the war, that or home, "so Yuchin, we're going after him aren't we?"
Yui would have to think about how to deal with Murasakibara’s attitude another time. She was suprirsed he was raised in a temple; his bluntness and arrogance certainly must have brushed several people the wrong way. She’d have to think more on how to mould them in the proper way later. For now, she could not stop their minor argument, nor did she have the energy to. She was still holding Kyo as he sniffled, and he and Rensu’s reaction to the news were her first priority. Naturally he didn’t take it well, and she hadn’t expected him to. He crumpled to his knees, a movement which Yui mimicked, her face striken. She could hardly say anything, and Rensu could hardly speak before bolting out of the door. She didn’t know where he was going, but she would not make chase. Wherever it was, she trusted he would be fine.
Atsushi asked if they were going to follow, to which Yui shook her head. “I am weary from this journey, and from everything that has happened. Certainly with everyone at the battle, some will need to be in Sunagakure. I will return home for now. You are free to join them, if you wish. I hope you stay safe and make it back, whichever you choose.” With that she would leave and go forward on back to Sunagakure with her son.
