[This topic interrupts Kanari whenever he leaves his other one just so Akira isn't in crossfire]

Ryoka landed in the snow some distance away and listened for a bit. This girl appeared to be a crafter, reminding Ryoka of her own dear Umeno. She reminded herself that she was doing this for them. Unfortunately for the Mizukage, her black garb stood out amongst the snow. It didn't matter much to her; she wasn't trying to blend in this time. She looked as she had left earlier. Her whole outfit was skin tight and black, her hair pulled in a tight bun. The hunter nin mask on her face was one Kanari would recognize as her, having worked alongside her in such an affect before. The only other telling sign it might be Ryoka was the large bundled sword on her back. Her other swords hung at her side,her gear in pouches on both if her legs and around her belt. Overall she was built to move right now, having left the pack in the inside with just her kimono and the Mizukage outfit. Once the girl was away, she would approach, landing on a rock above Kanari.

"Kanari," she said softly, not bothering to disguise her voice. "I'm begging you, please don't go through with this."
This Ryoka:
Chakra points: 250 (20 ninjutsu) (30 taijutsu)

The men continued to march, dozens of captives led by dozens of Kanari, with the real one standing at the rear with his brand new armor. All was going smoothly for him, and he was content to get a feel for this piece as they made what he assumed would be an uninterrupted trek towards the next objective. That delusion would not last.

At the sound of someone landing on a nearby rock, Kanari immediately kicked off to the side to create some serious distance. Now some ten meters away, he rapidly turned to face the intruder all before she even had time to speak.

"Kanari," she said softly, though her attire implied something else entirely. "Ryoka..." He breathed in displeased surprise, not believing that she would show up here... Much less dressed to battle.

"I'm begging you, please don't go through with this."

"I say the same thing, Ryoka." Kanari knew why she was here, though he didn't want to believe it. "The village is unbelievable! They steal at a hat and encourage each other to kill themselves for strength... It is a culture that the world can not hold!" She would feel the resolve in his voice, that his mind had been made and stuck fast. She had seen it before, and would know the truth: There was no changing this war. The only one who could be swayed, at this point, would be her.

"And I try to finish it without breaking blood... Above all, of you..."

At this point, the marching would cease as all eyes fell to the two.

His response was the one she had been expecting, but still her heart fell at his resolve. The stubborn hearts of men that would be their downfall. She thought of her predecessors as he spoke. Hers had grown from the teachings of a long dead Uchiha sage, taken by a former Mizukage as a message of peace. The endless wheel of violence they were all trapped in. Many before her had done their best to stop it by means of pacifism and isolationism, but Ryoka had come up different. Benjiro had preached peace, but in the shadows he would route out oppressors through the one means he knew how to permanently punish wrong doing: death. She was sure in his mind Kanari was doing the right thing. But he had been blinded.

"So you would make a wrong a right by stooping to their levels?" She dropped from the rock to the snow, the wind and flakes pelting against her. "And you're a fool to not know this will be a bloodbath. Do you expect one warmongering country to just show it's belly because another wants to play the game? You're sending your people to their death. I wouldn't have thought of you as that kind of kage. I remember one who wanted to protect his nation, not send it to war over a bruised ego." She kept a careful hand ready to withdraw her katana at a moment's notice. She didn't expect Kanari to attack her, but she also realized her words were instigative

Kanari shook his head in disappointment. "Ego? Do you think it is?" He asked, taking a half step backwards in shock of her thoughts on his motivations. "They were shedding our blood, insisting on a piece of worthless dirt... And you make me a war dealer?" He could simply not understand her perspective, to come to the defense of a village she herself called warmongering. To reclaim the land, in Kanari's eyes, was such a small piece of the puzzle. "What do you really think they will be as such a powerful village? Are you like rustic as you think they will be happy at their borders?"

"Some people may die, yes. Some of mine may die, yes. But if there is not much desire, how much will you die in war?" Kanari asked rhetorically as the wind continued to blow. His hair and robes- not pressed by his armor- would dance in this cool air, his new staff dancing with them. Though this weapon was at his back, his locks would play along with the wind, keeping the weapon as close yet inconspicuous as possible. "This is the essence of this world, the essence of our world. We are burying the enemies of our villages before. Remembering? What is different about this?"

Kanari shook his head once more, saddened by Ryoka's lack of foresight. What would come of letting their village continue? The actual bloodbath of their wars to come and their own annihilation as recompense. This was the future that the Wartime Hokage foresaw and, in Kanari's mind, this was the only way to stem the scar they could leave on this continent. "It is a matter of time they walk around other places and try to murder and replace. I will save the world from inevitably then as I stop them from obliteration by their own designs." Through the dark slits in her mask, the Handsome Hokage could not see Ryoka's eyes- he could not gauge her reaction. Though he expected little to actually come of this dialogue. For someone like her, Kanari hoped that she would understand that this was no easy decision. He expected the world to hate him for these actions, but he had to do what was in the best interest of that world.

"So let me do what I need. Let me do during the day what you do in the shade."

Ryoka listened quietly for most of his speech, not making a move or other indication of a reaction. For starters, she could usually understand him, but when he tried to give long speeches like this she got a little confused at some point. The general message was clear, but boy was this guy the epitome of hot and dumb. Anyway, she would mull over what he said a moment. Through his speech it became clear that neither would change their opinions. Of course he thought he was in the right. It was ironic to her that he would challenge Kemuri based on their expansionist principles, and yet Konoha held so many of those principles themselves. It was like two children arguing about who hit who first. There was no way to tell; he was simply buying into an ancient world view of an eye for an eye. She could care less for Kemuri; she could care for an endless cycle of violence begetting violence.

"If you bury them, they will come back, and the cycle will continue. I am also not so 'like rustic' to assume that you or your ally will not push to my borders as well." It was interesting as well that he brought up her past history of carrying out atrocious acts in the name of peace. Though she was sure he would not see it her way, the two concepts were very different. "My dealings in the dark were for the purposes of peace, not war. The blood of those people is my burden alone and has never touched my village, unlike yours. In the dark I would not brand Kirigakure and bring them to a fate of death." She spoke softly, and paused a moment before letting out a sigh. "So be it then. When I next see you in Kemuri, I won't bring any harm to you, Kanari. But I will not hesitate to show the others what meaningless destruction open war brings."

It was a challenging statement, but she didn't think he would attempt to fight her here. She'd linger only a moment longer to hear what he had to say, and then likely be off.

As Kanari had expected, there was nothing more to come of this conversation. Shaking his head, however, he could not believe that Ryoka would believe that world domination or even just taking her village was part of his plan.

Turning his back to his old friend, he began to walk away.

"When Kemuri falls, I'll show you that Kiri is not my enemy... However, interfere and you will shake my hand." While he would take no pleasure in having to take down his old friend, he would not abide someone harming his people.

Until he reached the front of the march, the clones would keep a close eye on Ryoka.

He couldn't bring himself to miss the snow.

As much as the tasks set before him had been simpler when he had lived eternally entrenched in its freezing embrace, the bite brought back more memories of pain than it could nostalgia.

Unlike the prelude to the last fight that he had fought with cold white at his feet, the skies were clear. For that much he was thankful. Not a single footstep of his left more than a shadow of his passing, as his feet, coated in chakra, held him out of the drifts over which he and the five with him walked. They had absconded the path when the Kazekage had determined that the target that he had been tracking had followed a path walked by many others, whose route he already knew. Closing the distance, unseen, between he and they would be much easier if done without walking atop their tracks.

The target, who he had initially assumed to be Ryoka, came into contact with the force of Kanari's many clones before he had the opportunity to confront them himself. Out of sight of where one of the many Hokage had turned and stopped, the Kazekage knelt, set his hand to the ground, and sent a cloud of smoke swirling up around him. Myōnichi stood where he had struck the ground when it had cleared.

"Top floor of the high building, overlooking the arena. Fetch me from there to here," he said, and the spirit obeyed. Body like shadow made liquid, her form seemed to drip from one to another, from a woman to a fox-like dragon. As it took to the air, the Kazekage drew in a deep breath. Without turning to face any of them, he stood again and issued one last command to the genin before the battle was truly joined. "Stay close and stay alive." With that, he strode forward to find anything but what he had expected to find.

Just as one of the many Hokage turned to leave, Kyōsuke found himself staring at the back of a slight woman, dressed in the garb of an ANBU, where he had expected to find the Mizukage. She was all in black, skin-tight, and bore a collection of swords. At the distance he stood from her, he was unable to discern whether the large one, bundled across her back, were the same as the one wielded by Ryoka, some other sword held by Kirigakure's shinobi, or a weapon altogether unknown to him. Though the Kanari turned away from the woman was facing away, and even further from him than she was, the wind favoured the Kazekage, and some few words of his travelled to where he stood.

"Not my enemy..." came the man's voice, "interfere and you will..."

"Curious," thought Kyōsuke, before he made himself known. The distance between himself and the woman could be no less than thirty metres, so any immediate threat that she could pose would come at a delay.

"You'll have to travel on before me, Hokage-dono," he called across the snow, "I'm afraid that I'm unable to match your speed. Who is this, that you have found? Or rather, did she find you?" As he spoke, he came to a stop and crossed his arms. "Either way, go on ahead."

The five of them tailed the Kazekage for some time until they eventually got to where they were going. Wrapped up in a light robe, meant for the desert as it was, the girl felt the frigid air keenly. Green eyes watched their Kage as her feet expelled just enough chakra to keep them from leaving tracks behind. It was he who had suggested it, unsurprisingly. He’s definitely not stupid… I’ll give him that. As important as the experience of live combat was, the thing she was most looking forward to was getting a read on the Kazekage himself.

He suddenly knelt, and Ayane herself came to a stop. He sent one of his summons forward to gain a vantage point over the field. He gave them one final warning, and then suddenly began forward once more. Ayane’s green eyes watched the Kazekage as she joined him, her right hand grabbing the collapsed fuma shuriken attached to her shirt’s back and pulled it through her cloak’s collar before bringing her arm to her side.

Her heart was thudding and she felt a knot of anxiety in her belly. ”Fool. Too weak!” She threw whatever part of her was feeling the need to criticize her to the side as they walked into the area. Ayane missed the words from the Hokage, blood thumping in her ears, and she stopped a good meter behind the Kazekage. There was a woman in front of them, a shinobi by her garb… and the Hokage. Given the Kage’s very careful choice of words, Ayane had a feeling she knew who their target was.

The small get together finished it's chitchatting before leaving the halls of infirmary, their voices cut off by some signal from Kyosuke probably. It was a shame though, it was kind of fun getting to know Arid's sister. As they made their way into the snow, the biting cold hit her full force. She turned her eyes to the clear skies and smiled softly. It was her first time seeing it, the white coating the ground. She had spent her entire life in the sands of Sunagakure or the deserts of the Jashinists. Was this what people who didn't live in unending heat got to experience all the time? As she pulled her attention away from the daydream, she noticed that Kyosuke had ceased to leave footprints in the snow. Chewing on her lip for a moment, she wondered just how he had managed to pull that off, but then remembered that they were shinobi and could walk on water. Snow was just like, soft water, duh! Sending chakra to the soles of her feet, she mimicked his almost trackless steps.

A sudden kneeling caught her off-guard, nearly causing her to topple over in her hasty stop. Luckily she was feeling more coordinated than before and was able to stop herself. Now that she thought about it, she felt way different than she had in the Exams. She hadn't mentioned it to anyone, but she had also suddenly just had around 90k worth of weapons on her.

Infirmaries really were strange places.

The kneeling that had caused this mental rambling resulted in a woman being summoned in front of the Kazekage. That woman was given an order and then suddenly transformed into a fox but also a dragon. Taking a moment to reflect on the situation, only one question kept going through Ty Lee's mind: I wonder how puberty was like for that thing? Her question would likely never go answered, but that only made the mystique of it appeal more to the Shikome. The Kazekage followed up the sudden appearance with a simple order. Thankfully his back was turned to her so he wouldn't see the rolling of her eyes. As if she even could die.

They approached an odd scene. The Hokage, who by the way was way handsome, and some chick in a skin-tight suit. Two more thoughts popped up immediately. Is it only ours that exudes this like, 'I'll murder your dick off' kind of vibe? I guess I haven't met the Raikage or Kemurikage so I can't really tell. Also, that chick's got a rocking bod. I wonder if after this she'll tell me her exercise routine?

It wasn't long before Kyosuke made their presence known, and should the woman turn to face them Ty Lee would hop to the side and smile, giving a friendly wave at whoever the woman was before moving her fingers to her cheeks and pushing them up, as if telling the woman to smile. After all, they were here to save her from the suffering of this life.

They were Anatta.

Turning at the arrival of the Kazekage and company, Kanari stopped for just a brief moment. Glancing to one of his clones and nodding towards the new arrivals, the Handsome Hokage turned back to continue his previous exit, much faster this time.

That one clone would then be found within meters of the group in the blink of an eye. "Understanding. Let us meet in Kemurigakure. I will leave captives for your care," it said, taking a modest bow and greeting the Suna nin before stealing a look towards Ryoka. "This person found me, but there is no threat." This was technically true at the moment, though potentially a lie in the future. There was the chance that the Mizukage could return to bite them all in the ass in a big way, and Kanari understood that. He would not, however, entertain any course of action that would cause her to come to harm before she made that mistake.

"Personally, I vouch for that," it finished as he returned its eyes to Kyōsuke's. In this moment, more than anything, Kanari simply wanted everyone to go their separate ways in peace.

The air had grown bitter, a biting cold nipping at Arid's nose. Of all the places she had ever traveled to, this climate was definitely not one of her favorites. It was only natural, after all. Arid was a desert girl all her life, and had grown accustomed to the sort of dry heat one would expect from such a location. She was thankful that her poncho and scarves would keep the ice-cold wind from blowing too frigidly on her skin.

Following in Kyousuke's footsteps (or lack thereof), Arid focused chakra into the soles of her feet and began walking atop the freshly laid snow, leaving no trace of her being there. As they approached, he would issue a final warning.

"Stay close and stay alive." he commanded, trudging on to finally set eyes upon his target. Arid followed hesitantly, looking all around to see if she could spot any potential ambush. The Hokage was there, a handsome man with impressive-looking armor. Adjacent from him, a small woman stood in ANBU gear and a mask, complete with a skin-tight bodysuit to help fight off the cold. She bore a collection of swords upon her back.

Arid had nary a clue who they had been looking for, but she knew what she was up against. Whether a Kage or an ANBU agent, she was not going to get out of this easily, definitely not without a fight. Internally, she braced for combat. Externally, however, she remained chill and crisp, like the breeze on winter's day.

Ryoka narrowed her eyes (though no one could see this) as the Kazekage approached. What is he doing here? she wondered to herself at first, though her question would soon be answered. The conversation between Kanari and the Kazekage most assuredly meant they were working together. This brought forth a whole slew of questions in her mind. Why? What did the Kazekage have to gain out of this? The man was creepy in the first place, and certainly gave off the air of someone who would attack someone for fun. She turned to him and cocked her head a moment. "Lord Kazekage, how unexpected." she said, giving her voice a feline quality that it didn't normally have. "What brings you here? Are you the true force behind this attack?" And if so, why? She didn't likely expect answers, but now every muscle in her body was tense and on high alert. She wanted to run; this hadn't been in the plan. But she also wanted to stay and find out more. She looked briefly to the others there. The students from the infirmary were following him. That put a trouble on everything as well; she had no intention of ever harming children in the war, or at least not killing them. Either way, she was expecting to stand and fight now; she couldn't envision the Kazekage letting her get away easy.

Following closely behind him, mimicking his chakra-coating at the feet in order to avoid leaving a trail of footprints, Kanbe readied himself for battle. Having spent a day or two in the infirmaries, his body had almost forgot how truly cold it was on the outside. Hell, he could have sworn that the blizzard made it even colder. As a man born in the dreaded heat of Sunagakure, he wasn't too used to such freezing temperatures. The Hokori would argue that his tolerance for cold was higher than most desert-folk, but this was too much. The only thing that stopped his body was shivering was the gnawing anticipation of battle. That thought pushed the cold from his mind. He had to be ready.

Before long, the group came to what the bowless archer presumed to be their destination and target. A darkly-garbed woman of small frame, armed with swords of her own, stood seemingly opposite to the Handsome Hokage. Her faced remained hidden underneath a mask, leaving little in the ways of features to identify her by. When the Kazekage moved to announce their presence, Kanbe stepped out to the man's left, standing a foot or two back. Kanbe remained quiet, but his mind was racing. Is she the one that made Kyousuke-sama leave so urgently? He considered the thought, following it towards the conclusion for what that implied. If that's the case ... She'll no doubt be extremely skilled. I'll have to remain on my toes. No doubt, he would be outclassed. If he split too far from the Kazekage, it would leave him easily vulnerable to being picked off.

His body was tense. This was about to start the most intense event of his life. Kanbe couldn't afford to lose focus.

Nensho marched along with her teammates. Taking note of the atmosphere, Nensho adapted by keeping her arms closed together under her breasts. Many other people saw he breasts as an inconvenience to her, but they never in any way bothered her. In situations like these, they did their best job in keeping her warm and honestly, Nensho couldn't be any more grateful . Nensho was one who had adapted to all forms of weather due to her previous work requiring her to venture around all of the world. Adapting was something that Nensho was most attuned to. With any given change in any moment, she naturally grew accustomed with ease. It was still however noticeably cold enough to warrant a shiver every now and then from her. Once the blood pumping adrenaline of battle started to settle in, she knew it would not bother her at all anymore. Nensho looked among her teammates that she followed and paid especially close attention to Kyousuke.

From what she was seeing, there were very few numbers of people involved in the current situation. There was a masked figure dressed in the apparel of the ANBU and another individual who seemed to be wearing the attire of the Hokage. Nensho knew just by this that the enemy here was not to be taken lightly. Right hand grasping her blade, Nensho readied herself for any possible outcome. Thoughts of her purpose continued to play throughout her mind and she was willing to do whatever it took to make sure those plans fell into fruition. "If I fail here, I will never be able to repay the debt I owe to my team mates] or Master Shingen." Her body fell into stance and prepared for anything that came her way. She was not going to be the one to fail this time.

"Understanding," was the first reply the Kazekage got, "let us meet in Kemurigakure. I will leave captives for your care." The Hokage seemed ever eager to be the first to something. Perhaps he thought to intercede in Kyōsuke's investigation into the woman. "This person found me, but there is no threat," the handsome man said, looking at her. His look told Kyōsuke everything that he needed to know.

"Personally, I vouch for that," he finished. He turned his head back towards the Kazekage, and locked eyes with him. His gaze seemed pleading, if only faintly. Kyōsuke found his appearance almost distracting; with the sharp blue in his eyes, the long black locks of hair, and face sculpted as if from marble, it took little in the way of imagining to think of speaking with him as something intimate. The Kazekage remained unsure if the emotion that the sentiment provoked in him was discomfort or disdain. Kyōsuke betrayed none of that to the world. His mismatched eyes were searching and empty. He broke the stare with Kanari when the woman cocked her head.

"Lord Kazekage, how unexpected," she replied, voice smooth but tinged with caution. The Kazekage was grateful that the weather and wind of Tetsu no Kuni were quick to shift, else the breeze might not have turned to put him downwind of her. He could practically smell the anxiety, and anxiety smelled so much like fear. "What brings you here? Are you the true force behind this attack?"

He might have laughed if the Hokage hadn't stopped to ask for him to guarantee the woman's passage. The laugh would have been filled with malice, and his eyes would have danced with glee. He might not have deigned to answer if the Hokage had not stopped to try and keep her safe. He would have fought her, wordless, and taken what knowledge that she held from him after he had beaten her. His hands clenched at his sides, cracking. The contempt never showed in his face, feigned hurt filling his eyes in its place. When his hands relaxed, he called out a reply first to the woman.

"What brings me here is concern for a friend, and I doubt that he needed any help in supplying the force for an attack." His glance back at the Hokage was sideways. "I am not so distrusting as to need any convincing of why you are here either. Tell me honestly and I shall believe you. Answer me untruthfully and you shall leave equally unharmed." He hoped that that would satisfy the discomfort of the Hokage, but did not turn to ask the man whether it would or not. "I am not the kind of man to wish harm on others, without some due cause." His left hand, at his side, twitched a subtle beckoning to the five behind him, indicating that they were to fan out from where they stood to be prepared to surround the woman. Talking, he hoped, rather than an early swing of the fist, would be sufficient to keep her attention away from them, at least in any way other than base curiosity.

"That besides, I would rather be able to call you something than have to think of you as some girl. It is much easier to talk to someone with a name." His voice was menacing not in the tone that it carried, even if his words were tinged with a bite more frigid than the snow at their feet, but rather in its conspicuous lack of venom. The words came calm, easy, and uncaring, as if the person that spoke them cared not whether he was believed, or whether or not his questions elicited answers.



In the distance, Kyōsuke crested into sight of the field where his clone stood with the five genin, Kanari, and some woman dressed in the garb of an ANBU. From the back of his companion, he could make out much of the field, but little about those who stood in it. Realistically, he could predict how he and the students would act to a reasonable degree, if a fight were to break out while he made his approach, but he had no means of predicting how the person unknown to him would act, nor did he know if the Hokage would join a battle alongside him at all. Not knowing was his anathema, and he meant to find out as soon as he were able to take his clone's place.

The Hokage was looking at Kyosuke with pleading eyes, asserting, assuring, that there was no threat here. The woman herself seemed more willing to stand her ground, a respectable trait that Ayane admired. They know what’s coming! There was a tingle across her spine and across her shoulders in response to the coming slaughter, a feeling of disdain that she couldn’t explain. Her eyes caught the hands of the Kazekage and she was suddenly a scared girl again, suddenly reminded of the quality of quiet anger that he possessed. He spoke in measured, controlled tones – precise syllables guillotined from his mouth.

He’s lying, she thought as he gave the signal. I wonder if our enemy is stupid enough to miss it. Seemed unlikely, but Ayane had always been a fan of the easy way. She felt a tingle up her spine and across her shoulders – anticipation for the upcoming combat, she thought. She walked forward and to her left, heading to a hypotenuse about seven meters away from the Kazekage, instinctively pulling her shoulders up as she stalked forward, green eyes peering out at the woman from under the hood of brown robes. This would put her less than a dozen meters away from the woman, on her right side.

Despite this being a party of eight, only the adults were speaking. The whole thing reminded her of the kid's table at some family get together. You were there, but you weren't really a part of anything that meant something. How boring! If only she could've been sent ahead or something to you know, do something. That would've truly been neato. Instead however, she was watching older people, handsome older people have you, talk to each other. Her vision of the Hokage being super kawaii fell to pieces as he spoke however. No matter how attractive his face was, that dude had to have an extra chromosome shoved somewhere in that mushmouth. That was a boner killer for sure. She stretched her arms out and yawned silently behind the murder-kage as he and the babe in front of them exchanged a few words. The emphasis on the word you piqued her interest quickly, pulling a confused expression to the forefront of her features. People only put emphasis on you if they know the you in question...I think...right? Aaah! If only I had paid more attention to those romance novels aside from just the cover guy's abs.

When Kyosuke made his remark about unwanted harm, Ty Lee couldn't help but think of all the times those fucking ANBU had stopped her from having fun. That was harm! That was unwanted! Oh well, Shingles had dealt with that in his own way. Her mind was wandering when her eyes caught sight of a subtle movement. At first she was going to roll her eyes at the use of one-handed seals, they had come in style this season but honestly it was just tacky, but it wasn't that at all. In fact it was one of those things that she remembered after Kyosuke allowed her to. Now that she thought of it, what else did she know but didn't know? What more did the murder-kage hide in her mind? She would have to ask later, for now she had a mission to go on!

She had already hopped to the side previously to say hi to the bodysuit babe ahead, so she just skipped a few steps more in that direction to take her place in formation to the right and behind Kyosuke. She smiled kindly to the woman they were slowly encompassing and pantomimed a "call me" move followed by an exaggerated flexing motion. If she made it out of this, she really did want exercise tips.

Her eyes drifted to the other four Genin, Nensho, Arid, the other Arid, Kanbe, and she couldn't help but wonder about them. They each had varying damage done to them from the Exams fight and had only been able to rest for a day or so, were they up to something like this? Their bodies didn't heal like hers did and that worried her. The promise she made to her unconscious teammates still stood. She wouldn't let anyone hurt them like that again.

Unless it was her that is. She could hurt them. They were her teammates after all.

Truthfully, Arid was sort of excited for what was transpiring, in a strange way. Not to fight, no. Fighting wasn't something she would ever look forward to. No, no, she was excited because, to her, this sort of task gave the implications that she was a worthy asset to someone with as much rank as the Kazekage himself. As the higher-ups spoke, Arid could tell something was off in the way Kyousuke spoke. His voice had this sort of.. tinge to it. The kind of tinge that could only be picked up on by the people who are in on the joke.

Pleasantries between Kages asided, Kyousuke would deliver a subtle signal with a minor twitch of his hand. Arid's orders were clear, and she gave her fellow Genin a quick nod of affirmation before taking point. The brunette positioned herself behind Kanari, a few meters to his left. "This is it..." she thought. "I just hope I can make it out of here in one piece."

Though this was her first time ever meeting him, she had heard rumors. That uneasy air that surrounded him, the feeling of dread that even his simple presence brought. It wasn’t that he was a large man and a kage; though she was a small woman she’d faced off people thrice her size before. Something about the way he spoke, the piercing eyes of his. She balanced between decisions for a moment. Kanari had given her the leeway to disappear, to join the others. But at the same time… this man’s reputation preceded him. He would follow as well, and who knew what would happen when he caught up to Kemuri. Then again, who knew what could happen to her. Still, she had dove straight into the jaws of death before and come out alive. It was hard to say that this time would be any different. He spoke rather harshly to Kanari as the Hokage left, which struck her as odd. The Kazekage called him a friend, yet there wasn’t entire trust between them.

“Concern for a friend? How charming,” she said teasingly, a laugh almost on her voice. “I hope you didn’t come just to entertain me so, hm?” She was certain he could tell she was feeling less than 100% confident at the moment, but she kept up the ruse nonetheless. The children around him began to an out, seemingly preparing for a fight. She glanced around at them (though they could not see this) for just a moment. Her face turned and landed on Ty Lee. “Don’t worry, I have no intention of harming children today.” She turned her attention back to the Kazekage. It was now or never; she had to hold him back here as long as she could. “My name is not important. What is important is that I have some bad news, I’m afraid. I have no intentions of letting you continue on to Kemurigakure. I don’t wish harm on you either, Lord Kazekage, but understand that your journey onwards ends here, if I can help it.” She kept up the same feline tone, the same quiet and calm demeanor. Her hands were at the ready though. One was prepared to remove the sword from its hilt, the other to do hand signs at the blink of an eye if need be.

Listening to the talks between the Kazekage and their masked woman, Kanbe couldn't help but think about how meaningless it all sounded to him. It reminded him of the awkward small-talk people always went through before cracking down on the real issues. Perhaps it came from the menacing, lethal aura that exuded from Kyousuke at all times, but the swordsman couldn't find cause to trust that this engagement wouldn't conclude without battle.

The sign to spread out was given, and slowly, the rest of the team began to take its positions. Briefly scanning the field with a quick once-over, Kanbe noted the direction that each of his allies moved towards in order to best decide which spot he needed to take. Seeing that most of his team took the closer positions in front of the woman's field of view, Kanbe crept across the field to occupy one of the rear positions. He moved cautiously, his attention remaining glued to where the woman was in order to watch for signs of danger. While she claimed to have no intention in harming children, that only eliminated a few possible targets on the team. Kanbe was still at risk, and taking a position behind her would no doubt put a marker on him.

Keeping his distance throughout the journey, Kanbe came to a stop some twenty meters behind and to the right of the woman. He expressed no sign of aggression, but he kept his hands close to his left side in order to be prepared to draw his katana at a moment's notice.

"Concern for a friend? How charming. I hope you didn’t come just to entertain me so, hm?" she prodded, teasing. She was either made foolhardy by fear, or was doing an exceptional job of masking it. She appeared to glance at the Shikome girl. "Don’t worry, I have no intention of harming children today." She turned her head again to face the Kazekage. "My name is not important. What is important is that I have some bad news, I’m afraid. I have no intentions of letting you continue on to Kemurigakure. I don’t wish harm on you either, Lord Kazekage, but understand that your journey onwards ends here, if I can help it."

"You can not."

Having seen himself approach in his mind's eye, the clone was able to gauge the distance of his original without looking in his direction. The side-long route from the sky would also keep him out of the woman's immediate line of sight, but the clone knew that the advance would neither be silent nor muffled by his shout. To compensate, the clone acted the instant that the original entered area that would be included in the barrier. Though Kyōsuke did not expect the woman to keep her gaze locked on him, even if she were to remain focused on the clone as the original propelled toward her, she would not note any forewarning handseals to accompany the pulse of chakra that Kyōsuke sent through the ground at his feet, only the flicker fading light as the air appeared to darken around him.

The earth beneath where the woman stood shook—a premonition of the shifting plates of stone beneath its surface—just prior to the snow above it bursting out and up as several great shells of rock moved to close around her. The Kazekage did not doubt that the move would neither harm her nor bring her to capture, but it would undoubtedly grant him a moment's distraction. The clone dissipated in that second, trusting that Shingen's four would follow through with the plan.

The Kazekage astride his companion, knowing then what battle he joined as the knowledge from his clone filled him, opened his mind's eye as he dismounted yet high in the air. He leapt from the spirit's back to rush towards the ground, a dozen or more metres away from his foe. As the clone before him expected, he figured his opponent to excel in close-quarters combat. At a distance, he might test his advantage. Inhaling as he arced downwards, chakra kneaded in his stomach. He exhaled before he hit the ground. His breath came in the form of a huge dragon's head made of flame, which launched out towards the woman. As his feet met the snow, now turned to slush, another dragon's head spewed forth, and a third followed the first two as he stood from the crouch he had assumed to break the force of his leap to the ground. Each head traced after the woman, and each left the before-frigid environment yet hotter than the last.

Though each gout of fire was terrible to behold, Kyōsuke himself was no more reassuring a sight. His mismatched eyes glinted dangerously as his Kazekage's robes kicked back from the force of each blast of flame, all as the air looked to darken around him just as it had around his clone. His hands raised before him, left in front of the right, pantomimed a fighting stance. He watched his companion, no less a threat than he, melted into the form of a woman after circling once overhead. She formed a single handseal, breaking one body into three as she fell back to the earth. Each arced out to a different side of their foe, each watching her with blue, inhuman eyes.

Ayane watched the woman, who seemed to pay her no mind. In that moment the Satetsu was acutely aware of the argument she had witnessed in the nursery room. She shook away the misgivings – a barrier ninjutsu would be possible even among bitter rivals, if it came to it. Her misgivings were shook free by the kunoichi talking, throwing out small verbal jabs at the Kazekage. Ayane was seriously impressed by the ovaries this lady had – she was barely able to speak a sentence to him without stammering.

The woman turned her face towards Ty Lee. Perhaps she was irritated by the newly-blond’s almost lackadaisical nature. It was unsettling to Ayane, at the least. Then she told the Kazekage that none of them were continuing onward to Kemurigakure – she was going to stop them. Ayane waited, her body tensed almost to the point of pain, awaiting his response. She dared not look back at those mismatched eyes.

When he finally spoke, the words barely registered before the ground started to shake. Then she heard the puff of smoke behind her, where the Kazekage had been. A clone!? She barely had time to register that before flames roared from above. She couldn’t spare a glance at it – the rock in front of her was moving, and she knew that technique. She backpedaled two steps backward, drawing chakra from within to augment the Kazekage’s tehcnique. As the ground itself broke apart, Ayane magnetized what sand there was there and forced it to move towards her foe’s feet. If left to its own devices, it would totally engulf her. There was no more time for thoughts, battle had truly been joined.

Everyone is so tense and quiet, this is lame! A frown formed on the Shikome's lips as she tapped her foot against the snow-covered ground. None of the other Genin had said anything, just quietly and what she assumed was an attempt at being sneaky, and took their places among the perimeter as Kyosuke had instructed in the once forgotten conversation they had. Her eyes jumped from person to person during the woman in front of them's talk about halting their leave to Kemurigakure. Hopefully that wasn't true. It wasn't often that she was given the go ahead to worship Jashin openly, and if some babe rocking a bodysuit cockblocked her from spreading her God's word she'd never forgive her.

It was during this time that she caught eyes with Arid's sister. Just like her kin, this girl seemed to be way too uptight. Honestly they both could probably use a little more self-love to loosen up their attitudes. She winked at Ayane, giving her a small kiss before it was cut off by Kyosuke's response. She hopped to attention, literally, and clapped her hands together. Fucking finally! The Kazekage hopped into action shooting a bunch of fire and doing rock stuff and other cool shinobi things and she took a step forward, ready to run headlong into the action.

She would, that is, if it wasn't for the "plan." Quickly losing all of her excitement. She let out an audible huff of aggravation and then formed a handseal before clapping her hands together and kneeling to the ground. Expecting the others to fulfill their part, should they follow suit then the barrier that Kyosuke had taught them would immediately rise up and encase both he and the opponent. In her little cozy corner and section of the barrier moved down to encase her in a pyramidesque fashion, protecting her from what was sure to be a fun fight.

Fun she didn't get to have.

Because she was holding a barrier.

Fucking lame. she hissed mentally.

With one final acknowledgement of the task at hand, Team Shingen Kyōsuke sprung into action. The Kazekage performed some excellent feats of ninjutsu, shooting fire and basically terraforming the ground underneath the mysterious ANBU's feet.

Arid wasted no time with her part of the plan, dropping to one knee and performing the same seal as Ty Lee, mimicking her movements as the blonde clapped her hands together and put them on the ground. Assuming the others followed suit, the ensuing barrier would effectively block any outside party from engaging the Kazekage or his target. To keep things easy, like the rest of her teammates holding up the barrier, a protective mini-pyramid formed around Arid to keep out the cold (or the icy grip of death).

She wondered for a moment what their role would be in this fight would be, besides holding up a nigh-impenetrable barrier. It would seem that, for the time being, Team 420 would provide color commentary for this upcoming title bout.

Her life ever since she had been freed became learning how to meld into the society of normal people. For Nensho, it felt like thrusting a child straight into adulthood. A child that had been damaged beyond repair at least. Her strawberry blonde hair fell into locks behind her back. It was something she needed to learn to manage, but it never bothered her so she wouldn't care much about it. Her sword remained within an underhanded grip of her lightly calloused fingers. It was one of the few things that she could call her own. Nensho didn't have much at all really. She had one pair of clothes, her sword, and Shingen. In her honest opinion, the only thing she needed was Shingen. Clothes were something she hardly ever wore, but according to a book she had begun reading, it was not normal in society to walk around with no clothes on. There was a story of a wise man of past who was always naked. If not for Shingen, she would aspire to become him. Her sword on the other hand was something she had earned. After Shingen freed her from slavery, she had acquired the sword after taking down the leader of the group that enslaved her. These were the only thoughts that occupied her thoughts until the moment to act came. Shingen, nudity, and a sword.

She did nothing more but wait for the moment her blade was given a purpose. Kyousuke was the determining factor in which the the ignition of battle would begin. At the drop of a hat, things switched from a stand off straight into combat. The shinobi that all of Sunagakure worshiped took action and just as he had performed his duty, the rest of the team would as well. Her mind clamored through the memories of the strategy they had practiced and then repressed. The four were to lock into positions and perform a technique that Kyousuke had taught them. The other three had taken their positions and now Nensho fell into hers. Her hands would allow for the tip of her blade to meet the ground as she formed the snake hand seal and clapped. Once all four the team completed their end of the technique, a violet barrier would form with them as the perimeter. Part of the barrier would enclose around Nensho as well in order to grant the same protection of the barrier to herself as well.

It was then that her goal was set. No one gets in. Only they get out.

Technique Used
  • Four Violent Flames Technique - B Rank (10 SP)
Remaining SP: 90 SP
