It was a normal day in Konohagakure, with the village going about its usual business. Children frolicked in the streets, restaurants tended to hungry villagers, guards manned the gate, and shinobi went on missions. However, for one particular Nara clan-member, the day was quite unusual. It was common practice for Shikaji to meet up with his best friend Chojiro at the gym each day. From there, they would break into various competitions, tasks, or missions. While each one was always a little different, the same general style of routine was always followed. Today, that routine had been completely upended. His typical mission partner was out of the village today, visiting Tanzaku Town for a special food-and-culture festival, though Shikaji knew it was the first part of that festival that interested Chojiro. Normally, Shikaji would have tagged (or been dragged) along, but his schedule was too preoccupied this week, having to tend to the Nara clan's forest and deer. It wasn't an all-day affair by any means, but the fact that it needed to be done, and that it took a few hours every other day to do, meant that Shikaji couldn't leave the village for several days to attend an out-of-town festival.

The end result was that Shikaji was left alone in the village for the first time in what felt like quite a while. And, with his partner gone, he had been tasked with doing something particularly uncommon. He was to do mission work on a temporary team with another jounin. Shikaji had never been on an official team without Chojiro on it, but he had worked on other temporary assignments before, so the concept of working with strangers or without Chojiro wasn't entire foreign. It was, however, uncommon and a somewhat unpleasant experience. It pushed Shikaji out of his comfort zone, which he certainly would have preferred to remain in, and it almost made him feel a little bit guilty. He hoped that, when Chojiro returned and learned about the events that were transpiring, that Shikaji wouldn't be accused of cheating on him.

And so, Shikaji waited outside the Nara clan estate, leaning against the compound's walls as his eyes glanced around the street. It wasn't particularly busy in this part of the village, since it was a residential district, doubly so at this time of day, just passed noon. Most people were already out, going about their day's work, but the Nara were a notoriously lazy clan. If Shikaji were forced to sheepishly admit it, he would reveal that he had only gotten out of bed an hour or two ago. He normally got up quite early to go and meet with Chojiro each day, but with his Akimichi pal out of town, Shikaji found it difficult to muster the energy to get up particularly early, and he had elected to sleep in instead. But now, he was finally awake, and he found himself waiting outside of his house for his assigned temporary partner to arrive.

He knew his partner's name, Inuzuka Ayla, and he knew the details of their mission, but he had never met the woman before. All he really knew about the situation was what the short briefing in his assignment had said. Normally, Shikaji wouldn't be working a mission without Chojiro at all, but with the village particularly empty due to the Chuunin Exams, it seemed that Shikaji was needed to do missions with or without his usual partner. The briefing had told him a little, though not much, about his temporary partner, and when they were to head out on their mission. It was approaching that time now, and so Shikaji had exited his house to stand outside on the street, his eyes searching for anyone that looked a little wolfish, or enjoyed the presence of what he assumed would be a particularly large dog. The streets of the residential district, Shikaji figured, would be as good of a place as any to meet up. After-all, the Nara clan compound and the Inuzuka clan compound weren't that far apart.

Hopping through the various parts of the village, Ayla was late. Not something that wasn't usual to her, but quite uncommon when it came to appearing on time for mission debriefings. Ichimaru chased tail, following his master towards their destination. Make-up was at least done semi-properly and her equipment was set. A small green backpack rested on her back whilst fingerless black gloves were strapped tight around her clenched fists. Dark blue shorts accompanied by a black short t-shirt which revealed her belly button was a part of her attire for the day. Konoha-headband rested loosely around her neck as it was a scarf and black shinobi closed shoes were strapped tightly around her feet. Transparent pantyhose covered her slim legs. Her attire felt light and flexible, just the way the Inuzuka liked it.

The mission for the day was rather a strange one but the requester paid a hefty sum of money for it, so towards the end of the day, Ayla cared little. Still. An unknown beast that was causing havoc at the nearby settlements. She couldn't help but wonder what kind of beast that could be. A minotaur? Nono, those didn't actually exist..., right? Perhaps a hungry bear or even a giant wolf. That last one would be ironic, enough for the young lady to smirk visibly. "What do you think Ichimaru? What kind of beast could it be?" the puppy barked happily in reply as it chased her visibly brown furry tail. Fluffy ears perked up before the Inuzuka looked back, smirking as she did so.

"I guess you're right, we'll find out either way."

Feet landed on the solid walls of the Nara clan compound. Or well, right on top of the entrance at least. Ichimaru jumped up and landed between Ayla's ears on top of her soft brown hair. "Are we too early after all?" she asked herself aloud before glancing at something orange below her. "Ah, hello there pup! Shikaji, right?" she'd wave down at him with a white tooth revealing grin. Her tail wiggling in response. Ichimaru said hi too!

While Shikaji spent his time, scanning the streets for the arrival of a girl and her dog, he was surprised by the fact that a voice came from above him. Glancing vaguely upward, Shikaji's eyes fell upon a girl and her dog, balanced precariously on the walls of his clan's compound. He tilted his head vaguely to the side, staring at her dumfounded. It wasn't exactly the kind of introduction that he expected, but in a way, it helped him relax. It reminded him of the kind of antics that Chojiro might have pulled if he was here.

Raising his left hand in an informal wave as a greeting, Shikaji nodded in recognition. "Osu," he greeted, lowering his hand and taking a few steps forward so that he was no longer leaning against the wall. Once he was a few feet away, he turned to face the walls of the compound, tilting his head slightly to look up at the girl that stood on the walls.

"That's me," he affirmed, his light brown eyes examining the strange girl. She had mismatched eyes. Something about that stirred up a strange wave of familiar feelings in the Nara, but he pushed the feelings aside. After all, he had never seen eyes like those before. More noticeable than her eyes, however, was Ayla's tail. Shikaji had never seen a person with a tail before, either. For a moment, he watched her tail wag from side to side, one of the boy's eyebrows raising in confusion. She was definitely different, but Shikaji wouldn't judge her for that. He had his fair share of experience hanging out with strange people. "I've never met someone with a tail before," he commented, his voice neither judgmental nor excited. It was almost as if he was just stating a fact.

"Yeah well..." she began as her body hopped off the wall. Crouching ever so slightly to absorb the impact of the solid ground. "I hear that quite often actually." she gave him a tooth revealing smile as her pup joined the Inuzuka by her side. "I'm Ayla Inuzuka and this is Ichimaru, nice to meet you!" Ichimaru's tail copied his master's tail in an identical fashion, giving Shikaji a few barks of his own as a form of greeting. She was slightly surprised that he had only commented about her tail so far, her furry ears weren't something that people saw every day either, then again, not many commented on her ears nearly as much as they commented about her tail.

She stopped right in front of him, almost uncomfortable close as she leaned forward to have a good look at him. Her nose poked against his as she stared him from the face all the way down and back up. *sniff sniff* her nose wiggled slightly up and down "I like your scent" a hushed slow tone enveloping her soft lips before she took a few steps back and ruffling out a sealed scroll from within the pockets of her shorts. Handing the Nara lad the scroll her peach lips opened once more, "So this is the mission, hope you're up for a little hunt" her soft voice remained pleasant and welcoming as if the two had been best buddies for quite some time.

Being a moderately successful shinobi, and not unpleasant to look at, Shikaji wasn't completely unfamiliar with women flirting with him. He wasn't flocked by fangirls or anything, but he had experienced a handful of girls being interested in him. However, in over the course of his various experiences with girls, none of them had ever told him that they liked his scent before. It was strange, but Shikaji at least supposed that it was probably a compliment, even as his face flushed red at the girl's sudden closeness. Eventually, she took a few steps backwards, giving Shikaji some space. He brought his left hand up towards his head and rubbed his lower face a few times, as if that would wipe away the blush.

Ayla offered Shikaji the scroll that contained more of their mission information, and the Nara readily accepted it, unfurling it and letting his eyes read over the contents. Honestly, he didn't feel particularly suited for a mission like this one. He was better suited for interrogations when he wasn't doing tag-team work with Chojiro. He assumed, then, that this mission had been chosen for Ayla because of her tracking skills, and that Shikaji was simply deigned to be a sufficient partner, probably based largely on the fact that he was one of the few people that were available. When he finished reading the scroll, he rolled it back up and handed it back to the animal-eared jounin.

"I'll do my best," came his unassuming reply.
