Shingen
Having successfully been teleported through space-time, Shingen was deposited, alongside Sajin by the wagon to which Rei had affixed one of her seals. They a small distance outside of the village now, and Shingen had been left with a mixture of feelings. There was disappointment, to be sure. He had hoped that his students would come with him, though he was also proud of the loyalty and conviction that they had displayed. More than anything, he felt alive again, in a way that he hadn't felt for some time. He felt like all that coiled tension inside of him, all of that pressure and weight weighing down his shoulders, had disappeared. He took several deep breaths of the clean desert air, letting it fill his lungs and wash through him like a cleansing tide. There was shame, too, knowing of the crimes he had committed. Crimes that could have likely played the difference in the students' decisions on whether or not to accompany him. However, the clean desert air wiped that shame away. It wasn't simply forgotten, nor was it repressed or even ignored. It was replaced by a familiar resolve, a wellspring of strength that the man had found deep within himself once before, and he committed now to following through with once again. It was a resolve to be better, to do better, to seek out redemption wherever that might take him.

His self-evaluation would have to wait until another time, however, as a slight jolt ran through him. A tingling at the base of his neck that told him that Rei's seal had been activated. For what exact purpose he could not say, though he knew that it had been activated. He exchanged a quick glance with Sajin, knowing that he had received the same feeling. There were only three people with the ability to send such a thing, and the two of them certainly hadn't used it. There were three likely possibilities, though Shingen was easily able to discount one of them. The other two options were that Rei was signalling them; either to come closer, or to stay away. Though he couldn't be sure which of the two she meant, for Shingen there was only one way forward. Glancing quickly at Sajin, his eyes made his intent clear. There was no way that he wasn't going back in. "Come on, partner," he spoke, his hands weaving a quick single seal, a poof of smoke accompanying a sudden change in aesthetic.

Boy, it felt good to be blonde again.

Akimichi Chojiro
After being whisked away through time and space the Akimichi found himself back in the cart that had brought him into the village to begin with. Looking around he felt more than a little disoriented, this being the first time he had ever teleported. Sodai was there, or Shingen, or Shikaji, who knew anymore, so he knew that he was at least where he was supposed to be.

The talks with his friend's old students could have certainly gone better. The way they responded made him wonder though, why had they come in the first place? None of them seemed even remotely interested in coming with them. Perhaps an oversight on Sodai's part or a hopefulness that went against any kind of logic. The responses Sodai got from them were varied and all over the spectrum of extremes but none of them were what he would have called welcoming. The biggest smudge on what might have been a nice reunion was partially his fault. Had he chose not to fight Shikaji at Tanzaku Town, maybe those kids would be with them now.

A small jolt shook him out of the restaurant and back into the cart. The seal that Rei had placed on him had been activated but as she had said before porting them, it was probably her just saying she'd be a little late. Sodai however gave him a glance and that caused him to roll his eyes with such force it nearly took his head with them. "You know it's probably nothing." He said to empty air as his friend transformed in front of him.

"Ugh, fine, but if it turns out she wasn't calling for us you owe me dinner."

Yui and Kyon appeared almost out of thin air onto the cart, landing gently as if they had been sitting there for hours resting. Yui took a few moments to catch her breath, looking around frantically at the dark night around her. She was holding her son at this point almost as tightly as he was holding her. The boy had been whimpering slightly, so she stroked the back of his head and whispered small coos to him to calm him as she looked around. It was quite apparent that they were outside the village now; Yui could see the large earthen walls that had been raised. She sat for a few moments, centering her breathing and focusing on it. She would whisper the sorts of meditations she did when he was upset, calming exercises for his breathing, the same she was repeating to herself. She knew Rei had been looking for the other two she had come with; the man she said was Shingen and the other they had been traveling with. She would scooch with Kyon off the cart to make room for them, and sit on the ground continuing their breathing.

He was able to calm down quickly, and she gained their bearings enough to take off the large packs she had been carrying. They'd been able to grab most of their clothes and other important items, which would be nice. Yui realized for the first time, now that she'd had time to think, about how little she knew about what was ahead. Mild terror rose in her, especially when she thought what she'd gotten her son into. She'd agreed in the heat of the moment to betray her country that she'd served faithfully, to put all of her trust in a woman who had taken so much from her, to leave behind her only home and family she'd ever known and brought her son along for the ride. I only hope she's not lying, and that this is the right decision. There was no way to know but to trust, to trust and move forward. She reminded herself of her thoughts at the time Rei had asked the question, and it brought some comfort and reaffirmation. Sunagakure had faded for so long in her eyes into nothing but a host of death. At least in this way, she could pull them back from a life of despair. New beginnings were the best for healing.

So, she would wait on the ground next to the cart, talking to Kyon and soothing him and answering his many questions of where they were and what they were doing. He asked them all several times and she would tell him each time, okay with the accommodation for now. All she could do now was await the arrival of Shingen and Rei and their comrade, and hope that what came next was the best life for her and her son.

Akimichi Chojiro
Just as he was about to dip underground a sudden appearance caught his attention. He was going to ask Rei what was up but as her hand moved up to him he figured it out for the most part. Halting his actions and allowing his body to return to normal the tall Akimichi was touched and transported. Appearing inside the cart with the remnants of his chakra wings and stretched arms fading he shook his head to clear it.

"Man, you just, never get used to that." He said shortly. With a quick flex of his fingers, toes, and other joints he found everything to still be in place. When he finally opened his eyes he was greeted to a strange sight. There were way more people in the cart than when he and Shikaji had left it earlier. He grinned stupidly and waved at the new arrivals.

"Hey uh, come here often?"

Shingen
Arriving at the cart, Shingen found that several others were already present, more people than he had in fact expected. There were many questions running through his head in that moment, and this unexpected development only added more. Still, Yui and Kyon Kyon's presence, while a surprise, was a welcome one, to be sure. His mind was rife with concern. There was a look in Rei's eyes that he could only really believe that he had seen once before, and in the moment he had truly believed that she might have been about to strike him. His sudden change in appearance, of course, had stirred a particularly emotional rise in her, especially so suddenly. That was something that Shingen thought was to be expected, though he had not exactly expected it to have gone as it did. Rei was likely to arrive soon after him, perhaps with Tori following behind him, and the mixture of events almost felt overwhelming. If he hadn't been under such intense emotional stress before, he might have cracked now. There were many things that he wanted to deal with in that moment, but the most he could do for now was deal with what exactly was in-front of him, and for the time being that was two people that he hadn't expected to see there. "Oba-chan, Kyon Kyon," he half-mumbled in a daze, his ringed eyes widened slightly in shock and surprise.

Not too long after Yui and Kyon had arrived, they would be joined by an unfamiliar presence. Well, it wasn't entirely unfamiliar to Yui, as it was the same chakra signature she had felt sitting with Rei and Shingen at the restaurant. But prior to that, she had never met this person before. When the cart started rocking with their presence, Yui would jump up, holding Kyon close to her. The little boy clung to her still, holding his breath. The man who climbed out was very tall, and rather nonchalant given the situation. Yui gave him a once over, her face stern. She kept her hands close around Kyon as she spoke. "You were with Rei and... the man who... Shingen." She wasn't sure what to call him yet. It wasn't a question, but was stated in such a way that she somewhat expected an answer. When she said Shingen's name, Kyon turned a confused look on her, but didn't say anything quite yet. "Did she... well, I guess it's teleportation of a sort." She would take a deep breath, and move on from that sort of thing. "I am Sakai Yui. This is my son, Sunba Kyousuke. What is your name?" She supposed names couldn't hurt right now; he seemed on her side enough to at least discern that information.

A moment later, another person would join the scene. It was a signature and a face that was all too familiar, one that felt like home as much as her own son's did. She hadn't had a chance to get a good look at him in the restaurant, but she could see now. Familiar blonde hair fell over a familiar face. Some things about him had changed; his eyes were different, and a long scar ran across his face now. But it was unmistakably Shingen. She would have recognized him anywhere. Most often, Yui was very able to keep her composure and maintain a strong persona, but right now she gave way to her emotions. She'd been strong enough for so long; she could let her mind rest for now. Tears blubbered forth from her eyes, her voice releasing a sobbing sound, and whether he liked it or not she let go of her son and reached forward and pulled Shingen into a tight embrace. "She wasn't lying," she whispered, barely able to breathe through her sobs. "Thank the Heavens, she wasn't lying. You're here."

Kyon stood back with wide eyes and mouth agape for a moment, clearly in shock. "But... Mama you said... mama you said Shingen left us..."

Yui would turn back to him, opening up one arm so he could join the embrace. "He's back, baby. Come here." But before she could even finish her sentence, the boy had practically tackled Shingen to the ground. "Shin-kun!! You're back! You came back!" The logistics and the how and the why weren't important right then and there. He trusted his mother that Shingen was back, and so ran to him, excited to see his cousin once more.

It was a frightened and confused (and honestly a little aroused) Tori would was dropped into the cart. She staggered on her feet, suddenly transported from a stationary ground to a moving on. Tori stumbled down onto an empty seat. Her breath came out a little sharp, but she didn't cry out in fear or surprise.

She took around her surroundings, her chakra coming to life instantly within her. Her senses more than her eyes let her know who was within the cart with her. The not-Shingen was here. Another stranger. And then two chakra senses Tori was deeply familiar with.

"Yui-san?" Tori yelped. The last person she was expecting to see was her step-mom and her half-brother. Her step mother was pulling not-Shingen into an embrace, buying the act that Tori was eager to get him to drop without question. Still the irony made Tori nearly nauseous. Of course, her unplanned and not entirely wanted flight from Sunagakure would wind up with her surrounded by one of the people Tori had been avoiding.

Uchiha Rei
Having appeared alongside Sajin, and for those counting order Yui and Kyon were alone until Shingen showed up and then shortly Tori, and *then* Rei and Sajin, the Uchiha paused, reaching up to wipe a bit of sweat from her brow. Her immediate want was to shout at her husband, to tell him that he had done a foolish and unnecessary thing without even trying to confirm whether or not her signal meant for help. Not to mention for transforming himself in what was - to her - such a disrespectful and thoughtless manner. The woman paused, however, her jaw clenching in frustration as the scene of Yui and Kyousuke rushing to Shingen, hugging him, crying out in joy unfolded in front of her. She could read a situation - they were overjoyed to see him, as well they should be, and her bitterness, perhaps a small amount of overreaction, wasn't welcome. Lashes batted softly downward as Rei closed her eyes, letting out a cleansing breath, and then opened them, clear sapphire replacing ruby and jet. There was yet at least one person she'd never really met, some old friend of Shingen's, and she did not want the first impression to be any worse than it likely already was.

Allowing the confusion to play out, the ex-ANBU turned her attention to the seal on the cart, and made certain that it ceased to be now that its purpose had been served. In the distance, smoke could be seen rising from the alert village, people moving like ants atop the buildings, and she reflected that what they had done was, essentially, like kicking an insects' nest. She hadn't killed the Kazekage. If she'd been on orders, she might have, but the freedom of doing as she pleased, of sparing who she wanted because it felt wrong to do otherwise, did satisfy her a bit. It did not, unfortunately, satisfy her as much as smashing her fist between the mismatched eyes of the elder Kyousuke. Red smear had turned to brown across her half-wiped hands, and she glanced about briefly for something to wear. Of course, there wasn't anything, and so she kept her transformation up, leaning down to rub her hands in the sand. It was uncomfortable and made her skin feel raw, but at the very least, the blood could be scoured away with some less-than-cautious scrubbing.

"We should go," she warned, able to keep her tone neutral only because of her forced detachment from the scene. She tried not to think about what might happen if she returned to her own parents. Would they embrace her like this? More likely they'd recoil, with a small possibility somewhere in there of being outright hostile. "We're not far from the village, really, and they'll soon realize we've left."

Shingen
Almost as quickly as he had been teleported here, Shingen was suddenly the subject of an embrace, as Yui wrapped her arms around him. Stunned for a moment, he returned the embrace, wrapping his arms around the woman, unsure of what comfort he could offer her in that surreal moment aside from that of his presence, the simple confirmation that he was right before her. When Kyon Kyon also joined the embrace, and Shingen moved an arm to wrap around the young boy as well, the archer couldn't stop a few tears from welling up at the corners of his eyes, too. In that moment, nothing else had mattered. "I'm back, I'm back," he mumbled, his voice scarcely above a whisper, lest it would crack and break. After holding the two of them close for a moment, the embrace eventually ended, and Shingen brought the back of one of his hands to his face, wiping away the tears with the back of his hand. "Sajin, this is Yui, my aunt, and Kyousuke, my cousin," he explained, moving his hand between one to the other as an introduction. "This is Sajin, my best friend," he introduced next. Then, he moved to motion towards the other young girl, this one an introduction not just for Sajin, but for Tori, as well. "This is Tori, another close friend. I thought she might be a good addition to our group," he explained, pausing for a minute before revealing perhaps a shocking revelation. "She's the Kazekage's niece."

Shortly after her embrace with Shingen and his confirmation that he was back, a few more people appeared. One was Rei; the other was the last presence Yui ever expected to be here. Tori's signature blipped suddenly into her radar, and Kyon must've been alerted to her presence as well. The boy let go of Shingen and turned to her, blinking in confusion. "Onee-chan?" he asked. Yui pulled from Shingen as well and wiped her eyes. "Tori-san!" she exclaimed, surprise evident in her voice. "What... what are you doing here?" The question was probably pretty obvious: she was here for the same reason Yui was. Still, it held a deeper context. Why would she abandon Kyousuke, or Suna? Did she know about the fight Rei had been having with him and get caught in the middle of it? It seemed very unlike her, and Yui wondered what hidden reasons she might have for joining them.

As introductions were made, Yui would give a bow of greeting and prompt Kyo to do the same. He introduced Tori as the Kazekage's niece, and Yui couldn't help but give Rei a slide glance as she added on another piece in a soft voice: "And Satoru's eldest daughter." It may seem like a strange bit of information to include, but not knowing why Tori was there, Yui wanted to add that extra layer of protection onto her. That is, if Rei was still going to be true to her repentance in that regard. As well, given their complicated relationship and now their status as close traveling companions, there were bound to be some uncomfortable conversations happening, and it helped if everyone was at least slightly on board. The strange man Sajin would have to just catch up later.

Yui would turn to Rei and give a nod of affirmation at her statement. "I agree, we should not linger."

Akimichi Chojiro
Suddenly, and by no means fabricated, something really interesting caught Sajin's eye and caused him to look away. Watching the guy he had grown up with hugging and reminiscing with people he had never met was about as awkward a situation as the Akimichi could dream up. The two had spent most of their lives together ever since they were kids. The biggest part of the man knew that Shikaji had never met these people yet his eyes and ears couldn't deceive him. They were talking like old pals, meeting up after some vacation or extensive absence. His hands made their way deep into pockets and after a brief few moments the multi-historied man he apparently knew nearly nothing about began introductions. He recognized Yui as the woman from the restaurant but he couldn't help but raise an eyebrow at the introduction of her son. Not only was a child now going to be traveling with them, which would surely produce it's own set of issues, but the kid was even named after the Kazekage?

When it was his turn to be introduced he slapped on his most genuine smile and waved a small greeting with a not-so-small hand. "Nice to meet you." He said truthfully. Anyone that was worth destroying half a village over would definitely be nice to meet.

Shikaji continued on his introductions, this time explaining the last younger girl. An old friend named Tori, made sense. It wasn't until he said the last line that the smile on Sajin's face was slapped off as fast as it appeared. "The Kazekage's...niece?" He questioned, eyes drilling into Shikaji. "Are you uh, are you sure that bringing her along is a good idea? No offense," he gestured his hands in front of himself to wave off any negative connotations to what he had said, "but that's a pretty big liability for us don't you think?"

Between a child and the Kazekage's kin things would definitely be a lot more complicated going forward.

Tori felt unease, confusion, frustration, and no small amount of fear thumping in her throat, so thick she felt like she might throw up. She had no idea what was going on. She had questions. She wanted to clarify that she hadn't agreed to join anything (she didn't even know what the thing she was joining was). Having all eyes on her made it twenty times worse.

"You know... just stopping by for tea." She mumbled answering Yui, in obviously not an honest answer but until Tori had talked things out with not!Shingen there wasn't an honest answer to give. She hadn't joined anything but saying that was likely not a good idea. Tori just needed to get not!Shingen alone so she could some actual answers about what the ever loving fuck was going on.

Tori offered a shy smile to her little brother and a tiny wave. It had been a long time since she had visited home and she felt a little guilty about that now.

Sajin made the not too nuanced point that having Tori around might piss off her uncle. To which he was completely right. But then they had brought along Tori's little brother and though he didn't share any blood with the Kazekage Tori was pretty sure he saw them has kin. Not that Tori pointed that out.

Uchiha Rei
Introductions were made, and Rei couldn't help the inner grimace at the girl's status. Another relative of the Kazekage, and thus another tie to Sunagakure that they might be pursued for. Never lucky, she thought to herself for the second time that day, reaffirming the point. With a draw of breath, the woman once known as the Fox looked at each of them, Tori's noncommittal attitude clear to even those less perceptive than Rei. "If you don't want to come, Sunagakure's in clear sight," she stated, noting the unsubtle description of the girl's familial ties. "The Kazekage will be distracted for some time yet. I doubt he's still in the village, so we have the time to lose potential pursuers in the ensuing chaos," the Uchiha continued, turning away and beginning to walk in the direction of the Land of Fire, away from the rocks of Sunagakure and into the desert. Her voice trailed back toward those gathered as she did so. "If you come, you must join with us. If you remain, there is no obligation to us. Now is the time to decide."

Shingen
"It probably isn't any worse than having taken his nephew. The Kazekage likes to hold grudges, and I'm sure he'll come after us all the same whether Tori comes with us or not," he replied, clasping the taller male reaffirmingly on the back. His ringed gaze shifted quickly to Rei, then back to Tori. It was difficult to tell exactly what Rei was thinking at any given time, but certainly there was some amount of frustration that was likely present. Whether that had something to do with what she did in the Sand Village itself was difficult to say. If circumstances were slightly different, he would have hurried off after her. However, there were other matters that also needed tending to. Besides, a little bit of space before approaching her would probably be a good thing, if their last interaction in the village itself was anything to go by. Offering Tori a reassuring smile, he quickly glanced at Yui for just a moment, wondering if she would also engage in any dialogue that might influence Tori one way or the other. "She means well," Shingen reassured. "You don't have to come with us if you don't want to, but I think you could really help us. We want to build a world of peace, Tori, and I think that this time, we really can do it. Sensei has been misguided lately," he spoke, his allusion to Kyousuke clear as day for anyone that knew enough about his time in the Sand Village. "We need to show him that war isn't the right path."

Tori frowned at the Uchiha, now that she wasn’t running for her life and the adrenaline was coming down, Tori recognized her. It was Uchha Rei, the murderer of her father and of Shingen.

Her eyes snapped away from the woman to Shingen. “Yeah. Those are pretty words. And if you were Shingen you might even mean them.” Tori’s tone was clipped. “Is there a reason you’re wearing the face of my best friend?” She demanded. “Because I’m a sensor. I know you’re not Shingen. I wanted to know why you were wearing his face, why you were acting like him. Because Shingen would know I was a sensor and that this farce wouldn’t fool me. And I find it hard to believe that Shingen would shack up with his murderer and the murderer of his mentor. I want some answers.”

Shingen
Tori's fierce reaction caught Shingen off-guard, since it was relatively uncharacteristic of her, but he supposed that it was not only to be expected, but probably deserved. The last bit of her scathing rebuke was particularly awkward. His identity could be explained, at least relatively easily in a world of chakra. The truth as to his relationship with Rei was admittedly more difficult to explain to an outside observer who didn't know about the full story to begin with, so he was silent for a moment, wondering how best to explain. "It's true, part of me died in the fields that day," he confessed, speaking slowly as he thought of what he should say next. "But the soul is transient. My soul was only half of one; there was another half, Nara Shikaji. When I died, my soul sought out its other half and came together. This is the result, something that is a mixture of both. In earnest, this is just a Transformation Technique that I am using right now. It's Shikaji's body, but I thought it might be better to go into Sunagakure looking like I used to," he explained. "I met with my old students in my plain form, but they didn't exactly believe me. I thought this might help a bit more. As for 'shacking up with my murderer', well, there's a bit more to it than that..." He elaborated, growing a bit silent but deciding eventually to leave the explanation for another time. "Let me prove it. Ask me questions that only Shingen would know."

Tori's lips pursed, unhappy with the answer. She was a doctor, a scientist. The soul was not a thing. That said, there were things beyond her purview, resurrection may be possible but certainly not in the way Shikaji was suggesting. "Which wrist did you break when we sparred as children?" Tori asked.

Shingen
Skepticism was natural, but Shingen was quite glad that Tori at least gave him the chance to prove that he was who he said he was. His students hadn't even given him that opportunity, but they were always a much more reckless bunch than Tori had been. Her question, however, caused him a little but of discontent. If she wanted to get even with him for some perceived slight, that was certainly the question to ask. It was a painful memory, to be sure, training with Tori at Satoru's behest. He hadn't intended to hurt her, certainly, but that was the outcome that had occurred. He apologized profusely, and insisted on bringing her snacks and doing her chores while she was hurt. He even remembered spending time sweeping the floors of the Sunba compound for her, because she couldn't walk. "Left," he replied, a wry smile crossing his face. "And it was your ankle, not your wrist. I still feel really bad about it."

He knew the answer and he had answered as Shingen would answer, looking uncomfortable at the unpleasant memory. For Tori it wasn't that unpleasant. She would have more bones broken by a person who cared less for her comfort. Tori was still on her guard though. Memories were hard to get but not impossible, not in Konoha. (though Tori would concede that memory bring brought out in interrogation and then remembered by an impersonator was a stretch) Even tired as she was of losing people she was more tired of being left in the dark. "So tell me about this world of peace you want to build. How do you intend to go about it?" Many had tried to end the bloodshed that was their world before and few had employed means any different from the violence the world offered. Tori wanted to break the wheel, not substitute the wheel with another. Knowing what Shikaji intended would give more credence to his claims. If he had Shingen's memories and demonstrated thinking like Shingen repeatedly, Tori would accept it.

Akimichi Chojiro
"His...nephew?" The man asked bluntly, his face turning slowly to the child that was with them. That explained the name at least, at least that is, if you named your kid after his uncle. That was not a common happening in the Akimichi clan nor Sajin's life in general but hey, to each their own. The man's thoughts were cut short when Tori spoke up about Shingen and Shikaji not being the same person. He wanted to interject, to explain a little about the situation, but it didn't feel like his place to do so. Not long ago he had been in the same boat, asking Rei about the other side of his best friend. If Shingen was Tori's like Shikaji was his, he knew better than anyone how confusing this was.

Each use of the word murderer grated against him. His eyes turning to the form of Rei leaving in the distance. He felt sadness for her. If these people knew how she thought of herself they wouldn't feel the need to try and drag her through more dirt. The talks of monsters and demons they had on the road rang in his ears as Shikaji and Tori continued their conversation on the validity of reincarnation or whatever it was that had acted on two souls.

"I'm going on ahead to speak with Rei." He said with no real enthusiasm. His eyes looked down on the girl they had brought with them, "As crazy as it sounds, I was there the day their souls merged. Shikaji is Shingen and vice versa. Whatever proof you need I'm sure you'll find soon enough." With that he jogged off after the Uchiha.

Shingen
Shingen found a brief moment of respite in his conversation, Sajin offering him some amount of backup, as it were. He raised his hand as a farewell greeting to his friend as he jogged away, before turning his attention back towards Tori."Confront injustice where we find it," he began, probably the most immediately applicable answer based on the events that had just happened in the Land of Wind. If he were to disavow violence entirely, especially given recent events, he knew that Tori wouldn't believe it. "Promote goodness where we can," he continued, offering a slight smile. "Little acts of kindness and compassion are just as important as acts of strength to defend the weak," he insisted. "We have plenty of people capable of the latter, that's why we need you, Tori. You're the person most capable of the former that I've ever met."

The foreign shinobi's words didn't hold much weight to Tori. She didn't know him. His claim of being there prompted questions from Tori's science focused mind, he removed himself before Tori could form her questions into words. Her lips pulled into a thin frown. Words hadn't used to be so difficult.

Shingen caught her eyes. His words caused the fight and the anger to leave her shoulders. They visibly drooped and her expression softened. She looked away. She didn't feel special. She felt so sad and so tired. "I don't want to go back." She admitted softly. Though she couldn't voice why. The vague feelings floated within her, shapeless, like smoke. She couldn't grasp them to wrangle them into words. "I don't think you are lying to me. Though your story is incredible." It was clear what meaning of 'incredible' she meant. "I'll need more concrete information. But I'm willing to join you."

Shingen
While Tori might not have felt like she was an exemplary individual, it was for that reason that she was so remarkable. Her talented abilities were hidden by her humility, and without pride to cloud her heart or her judgement, she was about as pure a person as could really exist in the world. A mixture of happiness and relief was visible on his face as she accepted the task, and chose to come with him. It would be hard, he knew, to leave everything behind. If she were someone else, Shingen might have advised her about such things, to be perfectly clear about the circumstances. He held his tongue, however, though not with any intent to deceive her. Tori was smart and wise beyond her years, and there was no way that she hadn't already heavily weighed the gravity of the situation and what it would mean. The weight of her convictions were heavy, indeed, but if he could help shoulder some of that weight that she would carry, then that would make him content. After all, he wouldn't be much of a big brother if he couldn't. "Come on, I'll explain more as we walk."

Exit.
