Listening to Chojiro's rant, a slight smile still on Shikaji's face, the Nara could only wonder if his friend had eaten enough food for breakfast this morning. Perhaps his blood sugar was low? Shikaji couldn't be sure, but he still laughed softy at his friend's conclusion anyway. From the corner of his eyes, he noticed an unrelated giggle from Junko, who glanced at him like a gossiping schoolgirl discussing her crush. Shikaji raised a questioning eyebrow at her, as if to ask what she was thinking. He had the feeling that it was probably embarrassing, so he wouldn't force her to say it now infront of her new senpai. His gaze, however, said all; he would find out later, after all, he had plenty of pleasurable ways to make her talk.
His somewhat perverted musings, however, were interrupted by Chojiro's declaration that it was, in-fact, a leyline, and that he had seen it himself. His mouth fell open in a stunned silence and his feet stopped moving. If it was another person, he would have doubted the accuracy of what they had said. However, this wasn't just some random person, this was Chojiro, Shikaji's best friend and brother, whom he trusted with his life. Closing his mouth, his brow furrowing, Shikaji didn't even bother with the line of thought that Chojkro might have been mistaken, as the Akimichi was the greatest sensor that he knew, and was a more-than-capable shinobi and hunter-nin.
"So it is," Shikaji admitted, slipping back into his walking pace. There was no reason to childishly deny what Chojiro had said. Denying the truth, doubling down on his error, would only damage his pride even more. Shikaji wasn't the type to admit he was wrong, but he was the type to never make the same mistake twice. "Lead the way, dinner's on me." He would honor the bet, of that there was no doubt. He was a man of his word, afterall. He would buy Chojiro whatever he wanted off the menu, including the entire menu itself. He would also, however, remember that Chojiro cheated. This just meant that the redhead Nara had a free chance to get even when his friend least expected it.
Life's a balance, you can feel it in your soul,
Time's a challenge, you can't be in control,
I will manage to bring peace to the world,
And I, will turn your heart into gold.
