While Oyochi was apart of a clan with its own housing, while he was attending the academy his brother did involuntarily or knowingly front up money for room and board within the Barracks which gave Oyochi the benefit of having a second home or so to speak. This had been his practical learning space away from the academy's classes, a place where he could store various scrolls which he had came across and learn from them in private. It was a modest living space with the basic furniture needed to live in simple comfort. Once within the initial doorway there was a depression in the floor where residents and guests alike removed their shoes before stepping into the open living area. A couch, a table, and shelf were all that was in this portion but gave note that Oyochi was a very clean individual. The only items which seemed out of place were various mounds of scrolls and text, some dedicated to the disciplines of various elements of ninjutsu while others were on genjutsu and shockingly taijutsu. He had medical graphs of the human body and chakra system sprawled out upon his table along with various texts on the nature of fuinjutsu.
Sitting down on the floor Oyochi's eyes glanced towards an almost three foot, white scaled snake that was coiled up in the corner, without a cage and truly free to roam the premises. This was his closest friend and his first buddy or so to speak that he had found the egg of within his own clan's compound grounds. The thing about the Yukata was that they had a respect for the serpentine creatures and many of them owned them as pets, with Oyochi being no different. The special thing about his snake was the fact that his father had taught him a special skill at a young age that revolved around being able to use his pet to deliver messages in the form of reverse sealing and even this skill by itself had been amplified by Oyochi's discovery that he could recognize and track chakra signatures.
"The sun will be going down soon, I think this is the best time afterall...I am sure most of them are done doing whatever they usually do for training and such..", was what he spoke towards his pet which in turned licked it's pronged tongue out and slithered towards him as if it was in full understanding. As it would slither Oyochi would remove a rolled up scroll and place it upon the ground which the snake quickly wrapped it's mouth around and consumed. Slamming his palms together Oyochi would perform a simple handseal before the sealing formula which had been hidden along the snakes body would branch out from its head and down it's body. Only after this did the the snake's form become consumed by smoke and disappeared...
"They'll arrive soon enough...". Oyochi would stand up, wearing his usually kimono attire and walk across the room, stepping across a large symbol etched onto the floorboards which was the symbol of his clan (See the eye in my signature). His palms would open the front door to his place slightly before returning to his resting spot on a seating cushion near the table. Both palms hid themselves within his kimono sleeves while his eyes closed and his sensory abilities were focused upon..."Soon...."
