Invitation, Insurrection, Investigation and Other Words that Start with "In" [Requesting Katsuo, Kotori, Takashi's NPC]

An Octagon of silver stone with entrances on all sides is where the inner workings of the Sungakure government take place. Sitting on top of the octagon is an image Primus the One King. The golden statue is of a man with his sword pointed to the ground with his gaze shifting upwards into the blue sky. The building is four stories high and consists of many offices. The office of the Steward is located on the third floor. The sigils of all Sungakurian families and families residing in Sungakure are carved on the sides of the building. Each sigil is colored with his clan's predominate color scheme. From the upper floors of the Kazekage tower viewers can see the lower part of the village housed within a recently opened canyon.

Missions can be found here. The Kazekage and his Sennin can be found here.

Invitation, Insurrection, Investigation and Other Words that Start with "In" [Requesting Katsuo, Kotori, Takashi's NPC]

Tue Dec 04, 2018 3:48 pm

Continued from here

"Well, this is the tower... I... we can... let's go... hmmm..."

Looking around for a moment, he seemed to be unable to remember where the door was. Surely this was just a silly situation, maybe it was the pressure of being a host, maybe it was his own irritable attitude, maybe it was the potential embarrassment of not remembering where the damn door was; whatever it was, it was starting to show on him. Then, just as quickly as the frustration would have bubbled up, it would dissipate.

"Oh yea, I was meaning to place a new door..."

He would look around for a moment before slapping an arbitrary piece of wall. Since spending his past few years honing his ability with craftsmanship thanks to his practice and natural affinity towards the skills of the Journeymen Order, he no longer feared property damage. His right hand would mimic a gun. Whispering under his breath "bang" he would imitate the motion of firing his hand gun as a small marble size orb of chakra would appear and rush forward into the wall he had just touched. The immediate area before him and his two guests would erupt in an explosion (Bang Bullet)

Image

While the concussive blast of the explosion should have only set debris flying, he wanted to ensure that no harm would come to the two behind him for his reckless little home improvement project. His eyes would suddenly become engorged with chakra as the sclera of his eyes turned black and his pupil and iris took on a light blue color, with the pupil remaining that color while his iris seemed to be set blaze by a hellish fire within his eyes (Activated Sharigan with ReSkin). All within his field of vision would seem to slow down as he attempted to take in all of the situation before making his next move.

His metallic arm would raise up and his palm would face forward as he emitted another jutsu, this one designed to keep his guests not only protected but clean. As dust and whatever small chunks of debris might have attempted to blow back on the trio would stop before the Sennin, as if caught by an invisible wall and bounce forward at an increased speed (Reflection).

"...here. Yep, this looks like where I was planning on placing that new door."

His eyes would peer around the scene of a now demolished conference room as one of the workers within the Tower would venture into the room cautiously to see what was happening. He would wave to the employee.

"Yea, I'm here for my meeting with the Kazekage. These two would like some water."

With that he would begin to press forward.

"Right this way, please pardon the mess."

That he had just caused...

Kotori would be walking around, she was already so amazed by the fact how this had come around. Made and even more. "This.... Is awesome" would her comment be as they pressed dorward. For her in mind it seemed that he would have lost the way. Yet... Tje next moment she did not think about. A whelp left her and she would be ready to place a barrier. Swalloing a time she thought this man was a mad man... "s-sheesh!! How can you scare me like that?!" she whelped as that was initial response. Not even her ability had shown this, meaning that there was hardly a threat to it. A faint hue had colored her cheeks as she would look ashamed by the fact she had already been startled by this.
"....... Good job at making a door...."

Ikari followed the man that was in front of him, it seemed that the tower lived up to all the expectations that where expected of him, he knew that much. It was clear that for a few minutes the room that they headed towards would be a brick wall, though Roku saw no issue with that as the conference room became available via a new door, some reconstruction was taking place inside of the village though Ikari allowed a small grin to escape his lips. It seemed that they had run into someone that had a very strong character.

“Thank you, I look forward to meeting with the Kazekage, and I also am looking forward to hearing more about what has been going on. That way we can at least see what has been happening with each other’s village, I must admit I am quite excited to hear about it.”

Ikari walked around the conference room and found himself a seat before taking it, the formal introductions would come shortly he had no doubt about it, but the thought about just having a glass of water that he could enjoy without having to walk miles was something that he couldn’t wait to enjoy for. He allowed himself a few minutes to wait and see what Kotori would do in this situation, it was clear that she still had a lot of work to do in order to become ready to take the mantle that was expected of her. At least when she was older that was.

NPC: Kobayashi Shizune

Where Roku seemed perfectly pleased with his actions or at least like the behavior of detonating a wall to walk through instead of walking around to the front door of the Tower, the aide which appeared on the scene to check into what had happened looked annoyed but more in a similar fashion to someone who had just discovered that their household had run out of their favorite cereal. It was clear from the nonchalance of her expression that this sort of thing was far from outside of the norm and so her irritation was mitigated by a growing sense of indifference towards the behavior of the wild Roku,

At just a little over five feet tall, Kobayashi Shizune was not a particularly intimidating sight for she lacked many of the features which traditionally marked a shinobi as dangerous. Long snow-white hair trailed behind her as she appeared on the scene bound in a ponytail that rested off to one side with a pair of small animal-like ears poking through her hair on the top of her head. She wore no obvioius weapons on her person and was dressed in a formal attire which was more suited to the setting of a board room as opposed to a battlefield to her movements and her expressions that betrayed her experience as a shinobi. Despite only officially being a Sand Chuunin on record, Shizune had survived a number of assassination attempts on the Kazekage and had undergone a number of training sessions from the Tenth aas well. Her file said Chuunin but she was easily the equal of most Jounin in the village.

"We could assign you a personal assistant if you're having trouble remembering where the door is." Shizune remarked casually as she scribbled some notes into a ream of paper that was attached to a clipboard in her hands.

"Yea, I'm here for my meeting with the Kazekage. These two would like some water."

"Of course, sir." Her responses were practiced and crisp, if the irritation with Roku's behavior were a factor in her attitude it didn't come through in her tone of voice at all which implied that perhaps Shizune always looked like she was mildly annoyed with the situation around her. "He is on his way."

If Katsuo were on the premises, it wouldn't take him very long to arrive. Something of a kindred spirit to Roku in some ways, Katsuo was more likely to open the wind to his office and jump out of it to get to the ground level of the Tower instead of taking the stairs.

"Right this way, please pardon the mess."

"Just so. Please follow me." She refrained from commenting on the mess that Roku had made, mostly because she knew the futility of scolding him for it, and instead focused on simply executing her role as well as she could given the circumstances. She would lead the trio across the hall to a nearly identical conference room which, all things told, was fairly nondescript aside from the lack of a gaping hole in the wall leading to an alleyway behind the Kazekage Tower that the previous room had been recently furnished with. "There is a refrigeration unit at the back of the room with cold water should the guests be thirsty. The Lord Tenth will be with you momentarily."

Turning to Kotori and Ikari, Shizune would offer a show formal bow with her clipboard clasped in front of her, executed with the same crisp efficiency that her responses to Roku had been handled with.

"[In the meantime, my name is Kobayashi Shizune and I am the executive adjutant to the Kazekage. If you require anything else, please do not be afraid to ask."

It seemed that the attendant was going to be one of the sorts that just did not naturally mesh well with Roku. He was someone who just did things, making a hole in a wall that he could recraft back better than the original wall that was previously standing, seemed inconsequential. But for this person, such an action seemed to go against the fiber of their being. Someone so bogged down and dictated by some normalized rule of how things should be done, the proper way. It was annoying. His method achieved the same results, possibly even quicker, than he had just gone to the door. This person didn't care. They would fixate on what was wrong. Not the results. That irritated him. That person, unfortunately, was in the majority within the higher rungs of this village. That also annoyed him.

She would ask if they would need anything, which would cause his brow, in what was becoming almost a fixed location on his face, to raise up. The thoughts would begin to churn as he glared at the woman and how her words caused him to internally scream. The equations were not adding up. Was this some bizarro world?

I asked to have water brought to them. She then proceeds to tell them, the guests, where drinks can be found. She then asks if they need anything else to ask. Just... what... the... fuck... am... I... missing.... ?????????????????????????

He would cross his arms as now he wasn't so sure if this was one of those "follow all the rules to the T" types, as they clearly lacked something within their mind. Instead of trying to navigate, whatever she might be going through, he would turn his attention back to the two Konohaians.

"So a 'Lunar Festival', huh? Excuse me, as I am rather ignorant to the happenings and customs of Fire Country, but I assume this is a big deal? What's it all about? Y'all just fascinated with that 'big ball' in the sky?"

If he was being honest, aside from it providing light at night, he never really gave the moon a second thought. The idea of space in general just seemed like the work of fiction. What happened up there in the darkness, in the blue, just seemed to be so far out of his personal grasp that it really didn't matter to him to learn the specifics of any of it. There had to be someone, somewhere, slaving away at researching something they would never reach and writing word after word on a fantastical location they would never explore. Just seemed like a waste, and maybe that is why he was a crafter and not a scientist.

His attention would turn to the white-haired woman.

"Would you mind bringing me a pen?"

Kotori was slightly puzzled by the way the other was displaying his skills, heck she even gave her own opinion about it and coughed a little to mask that she was acting like herself instead of the person she was supposed to in meetings. A slight annoyed 'tsk' like sound left her. Yet there was, for her, suddenly a new person erupting at this moment. "Hmmm..?" She started to tilt her head slightly to the side as she tried to peek a little around the corner. They seemed to be at a little of the same height. She was astonished by the person's hair, it was like... Snow white, where her own was having the nice color of red. "Uwah.." The only person she knew with white hair beside her brother... was now this person that identifies herself as a high person of the kage. "Pfuwah..." She sounded impressed at this and would look toward Ikari, looking a little on how to react to such a thing... But she soon would walk towards the inside. "Excuse me..." She said as she entered and would look around. "W-woaw..." This was so much different than the room her father was working in. Yet, once more her eyes trailed off towards the female of the party... She had a question burning inside her brain... and more and more questions came towards her, she had never seen anything like this. "Kobayashi Shizune..." Kotori would repeat the name and nod softly. "Uchiha Kotori, Nice to meet you. If you do not mind... I do have a few questions... kind of for the both?" She muttered. "Are those ears real? Can I touch them? Are there more people like that here? Are there lot's of animals like humans?" She would place those questions towards the female and towards Roku, she would ask a few too. "Are guys always planning to go half shirtless..? Half brainless... As my companion is too?" She would ask a simple question to him as she didn't have much more...
Her body would straighten a little as she grabbed a pocky from a pack, offered it towards the other as she would munch on a single one. She would, however, explain what this lunar event was. "The Lunar Event is, correct me if I am wrong Isaki." She would mention and look towards the both of them, looking more straight and thinking her role as she had for work would be most fitting with explaining. "Lunar Event is an Event that goes on for Friendships, unity, and recollection. It is an event that is supposed to bring bonds together, often used with multiple kinds of games. From stories that I have heard, things like flying paper balloons, Crafting things and shooting off Fireworks in the honor off..." She would sum it up on her fingers. "Although there are more things to discuss with your kage... mainly the letter I am carrying from him my fathe--- from our Hokage." She would try to correct herself as she almost easily said that. Biting down her lip and instantly punishing herself for that for eating down a pocky again.
"I do have a pen... would you like to use it? It is unchewed...." She would mention and offer it towards the sennin... it was a bright pink one with a yellow star on top.

Ikari followed the newcomer into a different conference room, it seemed that they where being moved around quite often. He didn’t mind for a few split seconds, it seemed that they where being welcomed into the village and having the honour of meeting the Kazekage, though it seemed that the information that had been given was slightly off but that was something that he would have to get used to. As always things changed with the passing of time, leaf was no exception from his, he allowed himself a few moments to look around and seeing what the situation was. He listened to the words of Kotori though a chuckle came out of his lips as he realised that she was trying to poke and he wouldn’t allow that to happen.

“Thank you for your hospitality, this room seems to be prepared for everything that we need I have to say I myself will go and get some water if you don’t mind. I would love to have some water of course, don’t mind if I do. I must admit maybe the wall was not needed but it makes for a nice demonstration at least. Now I will get a seat and we can go from there I guess.”

With that he allowed himself to walk to where the drinks where, grabbing one of the waters from it he allowed himself to open it and take a drink from it, enjoying the refreshing drink before taking a seat and just waiting, he listened to Kotori and shook his head, it seemed that she still had a lot to learn, but she was getting the hang of it quickly. It seemed that she still had a lot to learn he had to admit but the conversation with the Raikage hadn’t happened yet so that was the true test that she would be undertaking.

NPC: Kobayashi Shizune

"Uchiha Kotori, Nice to meet you. If you do not mind... I do have a few questions... kind of for the both?"

"Of course." Professional as always, Shizune intended to facilitate any questions that the visitors from Leaf might have for her.

"Are those ears real?"

"Yes."

"Can I touch them?"

"No."

"Are there more people like that here?"

"Yes."

"Are there lot's of animals like humans?"

"Yes."

Shizune's responses were every bit as quick and precise as her discourse with Roku had been, answering each question as quickly as they came with a great deal of verbal dexterity. It seemed like she was well accustomed to dealing with visitors who had a barrage of questions for her. She then turned to Roku and directed some questions at him and while Shizune didn't answer out-loud, she mentally cycled through the answers to those questions as well. Similar to Roku, the Kazekage also had a habit of simply walking around shirtless in the Kazekage Tower despite the nonprofessional way it made the Tower look but given that he had grown up a member of a desert tribe that sort of behavior was not unexpected from him.

And indeed, Katsuo could be just as brainless as Roku-- and apparently Kotori's companion --Shizune noted with a mental roll of her eyes.

Roku asked about the Lunar Festival and as Kotori began to explain, Shizune's pen went to work quietly taking notes on the discussion. It was interesting to note that Kotori had slipped up and almost referred to the Hokage as her father rather than by his title. She hadn't introduced herself that way to start. Was she trying to hide that fact? It was interesting none the less. Without interrupting, Shizune quietly would stand by and simply record the interactions going on to pass any relevant information on to the Kazekage when he arrived.

Mon Dec 10, 2018 3:26 pm

He would listen to the exchange between Shizune and Kotori, with a scowl almost forming each time the fuddy-duddy cat-person would respond and a pleasant smile when the youthful woman would question. He clearly had a favorite between the two. Then the questions would turn to him... sort of?

First, he was asked about being shirtless, unsure if she was just questioning his choice or if it was a broader question he had to answer on behalf of all men in the village.

"I am a craftsman, one of the first things I 'built' was this body. If you are good at building something, why hide it? Also, I tend to run a little warmer late--"

Before he could dive any further into that he would be slapped by her second questions about being "half brainless". He would smirk as his composure returned.

"Before answering questions of how little or how much brains one has, please remember that you followed a foreign military officer into a location you have no idea if this is the Kazekage Tower or a prison..."

There would be a little tension within the room that would be quickly broken by a slap of his hand onto his side and a hardy chuckle.

"Just kiddin', lil missy. However, don't let your tongue cause an international incident. You want half a brain you should ask the house cat over there."

It was tiring at times. His mask as Roku required a sense of being a musclehead, and it wasn't so much an act as it was simply his upbringing. The fact that he was consistently viewed as nothing more than "half brained" was exhaustive. It didn't have to be this hard though. He could easily just 'let loose' and show the village who he really was, or what he might really be. The draw to consume all and let a higher power, if that even existed, sort out the mess was there. It might not have always been there, but more often than not it seemed to be ever present... and growing. Shizune, even though skilled and potentially a multitude of things, would be reduced to nothing. Just flesh. They all were. Just a collection of energy that could either remain an individual or devoured into nothing. It was a whim, maybe it was a good day, maybe he just had self-control. It wasn't even really dark thoughts anymore, just thoughts.

But it was a part, the musclehead, that he had to play. It allowed him to live many different lives, as Roku he was an oafish brute. As Tenken he was a cold and calculating leader. As Kasha, he was more or less a detective with a dose of violence. As #6, he was a failed experiment that betrayed his contemporaries. Yet, it was a shame that his first mask, the one known as Roku, the one he spent the majority of his time out in, would always carry this belittling view from others. He would never show it, at least not now, how it bothered him. There was a lot about his current setting that continued to bother him.

"Well, it sounds like a splendid event. It might do our village some good to have a little fun... and of course, I'll take the pen chewed or not."

Germs didn't really concern him. He would head over to Kotori, take the pen, pull out a folded piece of paper from his pouch, scribble down a quick note onto the paper, place the paper back into his pouch, hand the pen back to the girl, give a great big smile and bow, and then ultimately return to his perch upon the wall. Sitting when waiting always made him more impatient, so standing helped keep him from losing his mind.

"Kitty, when is your master arriving?"

He wasn't sure, especially by the name, but since most of her kind, those with animal features, in the village seemed to be of some relation to Kuro and his kin, he wasn't the biggest fan. The fact that her eyes, the same judging eyes he had seen all his life, did not make his disposition towards Shizune any less sour.

Now that continued to wait.

Mon Dec 10, 2018 10:19 pm

Just... just maybe were her questions a little blunt and rude towards the person that brought them here... Yet her main objective with those questions was to prod or rather get someone else off their behind and finally talk to her normally instead of formally. As she gained the answers from the feline-person she would start to lean against the wall, her legs were still young enough to not give in when she was standing.

Earlier she had been talking towards her father, almost fully referencing her father as the Hokage... That was one slip up that she knew could have high costs. Namely, because their family was big with all kind of adopted in... but she was the one and only biological one in the family. In their clan that had already meant a lot, something that her brother couldn't really handle... well, if you would call him a brother. So far in her memory she knew she had one, he lived in leaf, but that was about it about that certain person.
Thinking even further back to her slip up she immediately started to think about how she could be preventing it in the next few times. Since it had been in the past, is a huge problem for her. She had a few times, when she was little, almost kidnap scenario's. One of them she herself defended off. 'I cannot... tell them... Even though he is a military officer... Or she is the right hand... I cannot trust anyone with my secrets... as they are living for me...' The homesickness struck her as she knew that her father wouldn't be able to protect her here. She would have to rely upon the advisor... AS the male started to answer the question there was tension rising in the room. Even she took a harder stance then she meant to. Her defense automatically went higher as if she could except something any moment. It did help however that the other had been joking a little around it, but she couldn't even really drop it. in her line of work, those moments of 'dropping' could sometimes be the worst. But still she felt it, maybe it was true. She still was immature, yet what were you expecting what she had been gone through.

Right here and right now, it was just a matter of waiting. 'Can I really do this..?' A sigh left the young girl as she was a little bit lost inside her own trail of thoughts. Her hands changed and were now more in a carrying motion of her own arms. Her gaze towards the ground as she started to bit her own lip. 'I mean... I never went towards these things... I don't even know how to react or such... Hence I just been promoted and already thrown into a lion's den...' In her own memory, she never attended these even though she had done so. Out of habit she took a pocky and started to nibble onto the tip. Slowly her gaze went towards the advisor. 'What... must he even think of me right now... How hopeless I am. As the daughter and having such a rank inside the village...' Her own thoughts started to annoy her then even being here. So she started to shift and grab something to drink, some water from the cooler. "I wish to know also.." She muttered softly onto the wording on when the Hokage came. She would, if possible, place herself near the advisor. Wanting a bit of comfort and confirmation on how she was doing. Yet a tiny voice in her head gave it to her, he wouldn't answer. "Yes... This event does help up to settle up some tension... Just as how our village would like to see. So I do hope our travel wouldn't be in vain."
Spoken language. and then this is thoughts going by her.

Ikari allowed himself to glance towards Roku, it seemed that though he would be sizing the man up but that was more in his nature to see how much he could get away with. Taking a seat back at the table it seemed that he had the bottle of water still with him as he sat there listening for the few conversations that where happening between Kotori and the others in the room, though Roku seemed to ask the right question. How long would it be before the person that they where here to meet with actually arrived. He wanted to know the same information as well but decided to help Kotori as well by speaking a little bit more while they where both waiting for the man to arrive.

“The invitation here is for all of the Sand village to come and attend the festival, we have decided to open the door up for all to attend that much is true, also we come to you with a copy of the Bingo book. This is the updated version itself since last time we attended here. And there is a letter to the Raikage addressed by the Hokage himself that is separate from the invitation, all of this we would like to get across quickly.”

It seemed that Kotori would need a little bit of a push to help with the conversation sides. He waited patiently as he allowed his hand to draw the sheathed sword form his belt and placed against a wall out of his reach, it seemed that he was trying to make sure that they posed as little danger to anyone as possible. Though he would have to relay the information back to Takeshi on what Kotori had asked but that would come when they got back to the village.

Shizune's own mask of professionalism cracked slightly as a silent smirk pulled at the edges of her lips when Roku pointed out the two Leaf Shinobi had walked into a proverbial lion's den and then claimed that the one that led them there was half-brainless. Perhaps brainless was the wrong way to describe martial artists and shinobi like the Kazekage and Roku. They weren't dumb or unintelligent-- they just thought in different directions than the average person. It was those very eccentricities that set them aside from the rank and file and made them into the legends that they were. When Shizune had first come into the employ of the Tenth Kazekage she'd judged him to be the worst sort of shinobi-- he was irresponsible, immature, unprofessional and unpredictable.

She'd hated him and hated working for him even more.

But the day that she and a foreign Moon Country shinobi had faced down a pair of dangerous armored assassins at Katsuo's side, Shizune finally understood why a man like Katsuo had been made into the Kazekage.


"When he figures out he can't overpower the both of us, he'll probably start targeting Shizune. If that happens and you're forced to choose between looking out for me or her, you pick her. Promise me Makoto."
Weakened and hurt, Katsuo had put himself between Shizune and a crazed villain from his past that was hell-bent on ripping her apart to get at the Kazekage. She would never forget what it had felt like to be pinned under the weight of that monster's demonic presence, clinging to the Katsuo's sword while wishing that he would stop trying to protect her and look out for himself. She was a paper-pusher. Replaceable. If she died, the Kazekage Tower staff would be sad and there would be a melancholy about the office for a while but that was the cost of being soldiers and they all knew it. But if the Kazekage were killed it would ripple through the village and snap the tenuous facade of stability in two. He was important if only because the people of Sunagakure looked to the office of the Kazekage for stability. She'd wished that Katsuo and Makoto would have just withdrawn and let her die so that he could safely escape but she'd been made to realize on that day that he would never make a decision like that.

Katsuo felt his place was between the evil's of the world and the people around him and he would stand there protecting them until the day it killed him.

And it almost had that day if not for their Moon Country friend Shiruko Makoto.

She still hated the parts about him that were irresponsible and unprofessional. She hated the way he whined about his paperwork. She hated the way he smoked in his office when he was deep in thought. And most of all she hated how he could disappear for hours on end without telling anyone where he went or when he would be back. But she respected and admired him for the way he loved his country and the people in it.

"Kitty--

"Shizune." She corrected him quickly but politely.

--when is your master arriving?"

One of the two Leaf envoys-- the girl who had identified herself as the Hokage's daughter --threw in that she also wished to know when Katsuo would arrive and that was unfortunately a question which was hard to answer. Even as skilled as she was at managing his time, Shizune often spent a great deal of her time simply tracking the Kazekage down so that she could corral him to his next appointment and that was challenging enough with engagements which had been pre-planned for days. Impromptu meetings like these were impossible to gauge because it was impossible to say for certain where the Kazekage was at any given time of the day.

It would not have been the first time that Shizune had gone to lunch thinking that he was in his office doing paperwork only to find out that he had skipped out while she was gone to-- in his own words -- "go on an adventure".

Mercifully Shizune, didn't need to go into an in-depth explanation of Katsuo's eccentric disregard for all things time management as the door to the meeting room creaked open at last. The first individual to walk through the door was a man shorter than Roku with blood-red hair cut short and a pair of black-brown curved horns sprouting from the recesses of his hair and an eerie white and red visored mask over the top half of his face. He wore a formal-looking black and red suit coat and slacks with black gloves on each hand and looked the picture of professional but more than that he looked... predatory, for lack of a better word. There was a sense about this man that gave the implicit impression that he was dangerous in the same way that the yellow and black stripes of a wasp did. This was Masashi Reiko, the Kazekage's bodyguard and other personal assistant who's duties had less to do with pens and paper and more with separating people's heads from their necks.

Behind him was... perhaps not what either of the Leaf shinobi might have expected from a man who called himself the leader of Sunagakure.

Six feet tall and sporting his own head of short red hair-- though it was cut much shorter than Reiko's --Sunahoshi Katsuo entered the room with a smile that could only have been described as goofy, sweat dripping down his face... and his shoulders... and his chest... as he also was not wearing a shirt of any kind and had apparently just come from some kind of physical exercise given the dark green sweat pants and the casual wooden sandals that he wore on his lower half.

"Sorry I'm late kids, I had to rescue a cat out of a tree on the way here and you know what? Turns out those guys are a lot craftier than we give them credit for. Do we really hand that out to E-Rank students as a misssion?" He breathed to Shizune who by this time had stowed her notepad under her right arm and firmly planted her face into her hands in embarrassment at the state that the Kazekage had arrived in. Passing by Roku, Katsuo gave him a casual nod of his head in greeting and offered a silent rap of his knuckles to his Wind of War before turning his attention to the two Leaf shinobi that had arrived to see him. "You two must be the Leafies, right? Oh, shoot. Is Leafy okay? Should I be calling them that, Shizune?"

"No, Lord Tenth." Shizune wheezed from behind her hands.

"Oh well." He shrugged, presenting his hand to whichever of the two Leaf shinobi were standing closer to the door at the time of his arrival with a genuine grin on his face. "Sunahoshi Katsuo but please. Call me Katsuo."

His attention would be first directed at the man entering before Katsuo. It was a face he had seen before, one he still needed to have a word with at some point; Reiko.

Red-haired bastard that was there for the mauling of our head medic. Wonder what he ended up doing with that wild woman.
[/i]
He would then acknowledge the Kazekage with a nod of his head. His relationship with this man, this new leader, was different than his with the previous Kazekage, the Steward. Him and Sousuke were bonded on a deeply personal level. Him and Katsuo were bonded on a growing respect. The new Kazekage, the proclaimed rightful heir of the title, declared him a member of the Winds. This was a big deal, especially for someone he more than likely knew very little about. There was still a strong urge to punch him.

I'd give me about an 85% chance of getting my ass handed to me... need to keep working on this new form.

"Oh, Kat---Kazekage, I have something I need to give you right quick. I was gonna leave it for you but just never got around to it."

He would once more pull out the piece of paper that he had written on earlier. He would stroll over to the Kage, hand him the letter and once it was out of his hands he would return back to leaning up against the wall.

Please. If you can please send help. There are people in this land that want to leave and start new lives, but they are scared. We are scared. Our children are not safe.

If you can’t help, please do not let innocent people come to this land. They will not be safe.

Kotori wasn't that curious to see when or what or where about the Kazekage. All that she hoped for that she didn't pull him out of a super important meeting right here and now. She had no ill intentions against anyone who wasn't a traitor of the Leaf, right now for her idea they were on neutral grounds. Yet even her mutters were heard as it seemed, yet she would remain further lost in her thoughts. Looking towards the box, pretending she was reading the words.
'Should... I even have gone here? Is this maybe my test as the war with frost is on a hold... and I couldn't kill them...' A puzzled frown would get to her as she was trying to get answers on questions that ended up getting only more questions. Sitting around and doing nothing was not something she was good at... But unlike the times she had at home and used her abilities towards a free extent, she wouldn't do so here. This was unknown property, sooner or later they had it through and she would be a target, or would get the wrong idea. 'Everything is so clean... yet messy at the same time... Surely the kage here cannot be like that...' Yet those thoughts would soon be answered as she saw someone enter. A few moments were taken as she started to observe the area around them and the two persons coming inside, she even looked towards the Military officer... 'Were we indeed fooled..?' was a simple thought going through her as she started to swallow just a little. The first one let alarm bells ring by her, it looked like a pro, someone who would get things done with ease. The first one was okay... But the second one...

Her eyebrow started to twitch a little and her mouth dropped slightly open, lowering the pocky the was resting between her lips. She noticed her reaction on that as he spoke. A bright hue got to her cheeks and she started to look annoyed. She liked the view, but it had caught her off guard at the situation like this. She took a quick tilt with her head looking to her advisor for hi- he didn't wear anything either. Even she would soon be found facepalming, her face having this red color and she could swear she almost matcher her own hair color. It took her a bit of strength to regain herself. A small cough was given by her as she ate her pocky. 'W-why do they even look hot like that?! Why do I find that hot?! Why do I react like this!' In her thoughts, she could easily smack herself, but doing that right here and now, wasn't much of a good idea. Neither was stepping in and out of time to ruffle her own hairs. A slight sound escaped her as a sort of groan. "T-tsk... U-Uchiha Kotori!" She baffled out as she looked to his eyes and tried to be not distracted at all kinds of costs.

"Y-yo kage...sama... erm.. no wait..." She stuttered as she looked a bit puzzled for herself. Her reactions like this, like right now... 'How to address how to address... "Good day mister kage-sama.." And yet those words were muttered again, but hesitant. She could scream inside of her right now, pluck out her own hairs. "no..." She said and would go through her hairs. "Shh... I am learning..." She would shush them before they could say anything. Insecurity was getting to her... she noticed she needed to start over a moment. Placing her hands in front of her face, covering her nose and her fingers against each other. Breathing into her hands for a moment.

"As you said, call me Katsuo, please do not mind me to do so. Katsuo-san." She would start of. "I am Uchiha Kotori, daughter of the Hokage, heir of the Leaf Uchiha Clan. What I bring forward is a Leaf invitation and hoping we could have this spoken out. As our mission was to bring this letter towards your hands only. If you happen to have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me or my advisor." She would make a small bow."O-oh! uhm... You can call me Kotori." This.... was her first time from home, first time not battling for her live but diplomatic stuff... fun....stuff... Why did a sudden memory pop in her head of drawing on papers on her dad's lap...
Spoken language. and then this is thoughts going by her.
Ooc message: Sorry for not reacting much onto your RP Roku! :( and... sorry for Kotori, she is kind of in her puberty timeline.

Ikari listened to the words that where being spoken between everyone attending the meeting it was clear that he still had a lot to say but Kotori seemed to fall onto her face in that department. Sighting slightly the man brought himself upright into the chair, before reaching into the small pocket that he had dragging out two letters and one small leather black book. Placing them onto the table he allowed himself to slide them across to the man letting him have the time he would require looking at the information given. A brief explanation would be a solution to this question of what they contained.

“Lord Katsuo, these documents should give a more detailed reason as to why we are here, though one of them that your Sennin gave you is still a mystery. The first envelope here is an invitation to the Lunar festival, in a join effort to open the gates to the other Shinobi villages in the land and enjoy the celebrations that we hold during these times.”

He gave pause for a moment, this gave time for the information to sink in on what the offer was, of course he would have to explain all the information as it seemed that Kotori was stumbling her words, that information would have to be fed back. Right here and now of all places was not the time to have that stern conversation with Kotori, it would have to wait for a later date.

“The second part is we have updated our bingo book, after an act of treason and terrorism was created inside of the village. The book that we have given to you, though no formal treaty between the two nations is to help identify possible trouble for the future. Finally, the last part I am unsure what it is, the letter was written by the Lord Forth, and only to be given to you Lord Katsuo, with that in mind, I do believe it would be an invitation for the three Kage to sit down and talk.”

Ikari let silence follow him, as he was able to answer any questions that they had or anything that may give concern. It was time for them to judge how the offers would go down, the sealed book and letters sat on the table ready to be opened. This was the job they had been intrusted with.

Personal Letter:

Lord Kazekage

I write to you personally to ask that you come to Leaf during the Lunar Festival, Konaha has been kicked when down, stepped on when broken, but we trust in our friends that we still have. We trust in those that are around us to help which is why I am writing to you now, to invite yourself and the Raikage to discuss recent events, to air things out and hear the story from both sides. For what is a tale but a false one if only one side is heard. We request that you share in the festivities, but I personally request that you come and talk with myself as well, to much has happened to avoid this opportunity, I look forward to hearing from you.

Signed:

Uchiha Takeshi
