Kasuse's eye sort of twitched. 'Keep Tsukiko in line? Tsukiko?!' Kasuse let out a brief sigh and saluted the Hokage. "Yes, Hokage. I'll...try." He then turned around and exited the Leaf kage's office, and met Tsukiko outside the building.

"Ready?"

Cut to Tsukiko near an open window, arms folded as, without warning, she sneezes. Kasuse didn't have to walk very far to find the Jonin. A leg was propped up against the window, and she seemed to be keeping an eye on the town as he approached. As she heard his foot-steps, though, she turned and smirked. That was odd. Tsukiko never smirked. Hopping off her vantage point, she proceeded to pull at her lower eyelid and stick her tongue at him, before tossing something his way and. . .disappearing?

Ah. Shadow clone.

With that conundrum settled, the object she'd tossed appeared to be a. . .reel of fine wire? Calling it string wouldn't be the proper term, as it was made of SOME sort of metal, but it seemed rather thin to be used as razor wiring of for traps. Still, the faint blue glow emanating from the base of the reel suggested someone was feeding chakra through it.

That's it. Tsukiko left to go. . .somewhere, and this was her attempt at letting him know where she went.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Blurs hopping from house to house weren't uncommon for those of Konohagakure. Ninja who needed to get from place to place quickly typically took to the rooftops. It's probably why so few of them did their laundry up there anymore. Though, out of the few traversing now, one reddish blur managed to catch Taro's attention. It wasn't that it was amazingly fast or slow, but rather it was heading straight towards him. And now it was jumping high...into the air.

Oh, now it was coming down....Directly where he would be in a few seconds. That silhouette, though! It was Tsukiko, bearing down with that giant blade of hers! Of course, Tsukiko would pull just far enough away that she'd miss him by a hair's breadth in case the Genin was blind enough not to notice her, but there was no way he'd be able to tell. As her blade smashed into the ground, leaving a very noticeable impression, she slowly straightened herself, eyes glinting off the reflecting sunshine off her sword.

"You weren't at the meeting place, Taro,"
Her voice was pleasant, 'kind' even. "Just because I had some official business to attend to, did you decide to go off and play? Or did your squadmates decide for you?" She was silent for a fraction of a second. "Well, Taro? Answer me."

"Well that's weird." Satoshi could only say in regards to see the girl following the hairy man. With another drag, he let the cigarette fall before grinding it beneath the heel of his sandal.

"Don't worry about what you're chasing right now, Kurama." He pushed off the wall, letting his smoking hand rest on the hilt of his katana once more. "Youth shouldn't worry too much." And with that, he flickered out of existence and back onto the roofs above, eying the advancing pair toward the Hokage Tower.

---

"WAAH!"

Taro winced, eyes shut, whole body skidding to a halt just as Tsukiko landed before him. The youngest Takeda genin stood there for a good half a minute, stilled into a statue. As soon as his sensei's voice reached his ears, however, he opened an eye, then both, and eased into a relaxed stance.

"W-well, you weren't at the meeting point at the normal time we...meet..." The young boy said slowly, shifting from foot to foot, "a-and you're never late...so we thought we...didn't have to go?"

He gulped, and quickly waved his hands in front of his body.

"B-but, I heard there was a mass gathering of jonin at the Hokage Tower! So I figured you were there! I came to see if we had a new mission or something!"

Imagine this is Yushin, waiting to be invited into the Hokage's office. (His weakness is boredom!)

She looks around, tapping her fingers against her thigh in a constant rhythm. She looks at Yushin and starts to speak quietly. "M-my name is Hisoka." She shakes slightly, obviously nervous. "What's your name?"

(Since it's been a week I'm going to be taking over Naga's character. He can PM me when he gets back and I'll add him back to play his own character.)

Tomoe remains silent, watching the people walk by into the hokage office.

Fuuma Tsukiko, Taro Takeda-Jun Takeda-Hotaru Takeda,Keiki Kasuse

(I see Izzy has plans for you guys :P)

Yushin Okami, Hisoka Takame

Yushin looked over at the girl, then back and forth along the hall again, and opened his mouth to speak to her, but stopped as a wall of water suddenly rose up between him and her. Seika Kajahara soon appeared from the water, smirking at Yushin and then smiling at him brightly. As Seika embraced him, Yushin awkwardly applied a small series of pats to his back. Hisoka was probably just staring and blinking blankly at the two.

"I didn't expect you back here for at least half a year! What brings you back so soon? You didn't have trouble in other villages did you?" The Hokage stepped away from Yushin, and as he waited for an answer from him he glanced back at the shy girl, simply smiling and nodding at her.

Satoshi Takeda, Kurama Tomoe

Water also comes out of the ground to meet the two of you.

"Satoshi, Tomoe. Pleasure." The hokage bowed to both of them once again. "Now, I'm sure you've wondered why I've kept you both here. You'll be joining and commanding the Chunin, that are returning soon, to go and investigate the border. This is a very, high ranked mission; and I expect the best from both of you."

The water clone looked between the both of them before smiling a little. "Any questions?"

Slowly, Tsukiko gripped her blade, pulling it out of the ground to rest in on her shoulder, a reproving expression on her face. "Find your teammates. Now." She commanded.

One got the feeling he'd better leave her sight soon, and not come back until they were all together. The tough part was knowing whether or not they were going to get a lecture or a beating, and when it came to Tsukiko the latter was far more likely.

At least the boy got to choose whether or not he was the brunt of it.

Kasuse just...sighed. A looooong sigh. A long sigh so long that his body eventually became so hunched over and out of air that he just...sat there. Breathless. Done with everything.

Then, with a sudden gust of air rushing into his lungs, he screams "I'M COMING, TSUKIKO!" And jumps with vigorous speed from rooftop to rooftop, following the reel of fine wire left behind by his true love. Or...what he assumed be to his true love.

In any case, the grin on the Sand ninja's face indicated not lust, nor pining, but a sort of amusement. Perhaps she was playing with him, maybe not; but as with every other encounter with the wielder of the demon sword, he could not help but admire and respect her. Eeeeeven if he had to slip in a few friendly flirts in here and there.

He proceeded to follow the wire until finally catching sight of Tsukiko. He picked a spot behind the Konoha jonin on an adjacent building, where Takeda could eye him if he were to just shift his head to one side. The Sand jonin laughed quietly, though, for rather than immediately calling her name, he instead opted to observe for as long as Tsukiko was distracted. The only information he needed to understand this situation was Tsukiko's stance and Takeda's face. Sometimes he wished he had taken genin under his wing, but that option was taken away due to his unique position. But Kasuse still took a kind of vicarious joy in watching one of his best friends -- at least in his mind -- with her students.

And with friends like Fuuma Tsukiko...

Taro was eager to obey his...rather scary mentor, but, well, the skies above didn't seem to want to cut the young Takeda any slack. As he turned to leave, he could only catch sight of a...man...observing them. A man that looked awfully familiar...that's it! He was (in)famous for always being around Tsukiko-sensei!...Well now this situation this became a million times more creepy. And so, when the young genin turned to address his teacher, the dual soft "thuds" signaled the arrival of his sisters.

"Hiya, Tsukiko-sensei!" Hotaru grinned, a hand on her hip and the other waving excitedly. Jun merely adjusted her glasses and looked up at the older woman, giving her a respectful nod.

"Ah heh..." Taro's smile was obviously forced, the growing sweatdrop down the back of his head sliding inch by inch. "W-well...uhm, we're a-all here...Tsukiko-sensei..."

Run, Taro. Run like you're a bat out of hell.

---

"No, Lord Hokage," Satoshi responded in a near-instant, standing a bit straighter, "we will handle the matter as needed."

"Mm?" Yushin didn't seem to've heard the Hokage's question. He stood there, eyes narrowed suspiciously, poking the water clone every couple of seconds. The way that the non-being rippled with every touch appeared to fascinate him immensely. But, as it would turn out, he did register Seika's words. "No." Poke. Poke, poke.

She stays quiet during the exchange, staying at a distance away from the two. She looks up from the ground, and nervously looks at the Hokage."E-excuse me Hokage. Do you know what happened to my brother? He hasn't returned from his mission..."

Keiki Kasuse, Fuuma Tsukiko
Taro Takeda, Jun TakedaHotaru Takeda

I still think you guys are good, I'll actually stop posting for you guys until ya need me to do it again.

Yushin Okami, Hisoka Takame

The Hokage's face water clone glanced over at the child before back to Yushin. "You might want to head into the office, Hisoka..." His voice was low and his hand moved up to point to his office door. "You might want to head in too, Yushin." With that, the clone slowly sank back into the floor, and disappeared into the moisture it was made from.

Satoshi Takeda

"Alright, oh, I almost forgot. The team I'm giving you is a tracking team; I want you to use them to bring back one of the enemies if you encounter them... Anbu would like to have a talk with him; as would I." The water clone splooshed to the floor before the ground absorbed it.

Toki Uchiha, Katsue Inuzuka, Asuka Tsukino

The gate remained open during the day, allowing people to come and go with either job requests, missions, or even trading. And as it would seem, it was the same time team Kunti was returning from their mission.

Toki walked in first, their injured Sensei on his back, followed slowly by Katsue and Aki and finally by Asuka and her bird Aya. The began walking to the hospital as a young academy student ran up to Toki; staring right up at his father who was being carried.

"What happened to him?!" The kid exclaimed in a bit of panic and sadness.

Tsukiko's eye twitched at Hotaro's friendliness and casual energy, despite her strictness. While she wanted to beat on them, the nagging thought of Konoha's security in the back of her mind was enough for her to stave off her bloodthirst.

...It helped that Jun was at least the sensible one. Between Taro's incessant cowering and Hotaro's similarity's to her own Jonin, it was no wonder Jun was the first to be taken aside for more specialized training.

Satisfied enough to relax her stance, she glared at the three of them; It wasn't anything personal, more her typical sensei-face. Gear up for a patrol. This is a B-ranked mission. Myself and another Jonin will be accompanying you. We'll meet at the gates."" A millisecond passed. "Go."

Kasuse crouched down, resting his hands on his knees as he observed Tsukiko and her students. A smiled found its way onto the Suna jonin's face, and he looked down at the plate hanging around his neck that denoted him as such. 'Funny,' he thought, though not why it was so. He turned the plate in his fingers so that that the hourglass shape of the Sand symbol faced him, upside-down. The plate was warm, heated by the sun, and his eyes shone with a strange pride.

"Go."

The man found his place by the woman's side, hands in pockets and mouth cocked into a smirk. "Still time to grab a drink before heading to the gates. Genin are always so much slower than us, anyhow."

It was so obvious that his actual self-confidence did not reflect what he just said, but he had said it. This ninja just doesn't give up.

"Of course, Lord Hokage." The Old Jonin took a moment to light up another cigarette, placing it in his lips as he looked at the sun. "I doubt it will be that simple, however. I hope Tsukiko-san has better luck than I."

The man let out a puff, then vanished. It was time to meet the new team.

---

Tsukiko's ordered was filled out to the letter, albeit in ways that exemplified her assessment of the three Takedas. Taro shakily bowed and leaped off the building, followed by Hotaru lazily waving off. Jun took a moment to bow her head respectively, then completely vanish into thin air.

No doubt they all sped off to their home, eager to prepare for the coming journey. Or just scared into doing it.

She waited a little bit after the clone disappeared, then began walking to the Hokage's office. She stops outside the door to try and calm herself down from all of her nervousness, then walks in.

Katsue was already exhausted from the trip home as she entered the front gate. The only thing on her mind was heading to the baths. Aki close by her said as she walked his ears perking up as the child run up to them. Katsue gave the child a warm smile in attempt to ease him "He is fine, he only needs some rest to restore his chakra."Aki had walked up the child and started sniffing him slowly

Asuka sighed as she walked through the gate behind her team, she ran her fingers through her dark green hair and looked at the boy and Katsue with an annoyed expression, she watched for a bit as Katsue talked to him. She walked up to her team, the look quickly fading as she walked up to the kid, kneeling down before him "Don't worry, kid. Your father just got a little tired out there, all he needs is a few bandages and he'll be perfectly fine when he wakes up." she ruffled his hair, smiling as she stood up and pat him on the shoulder. She took a step back towards Toki and put her hand on his shoulder "Hey, if you two wanna go ahead to the hospital you can, I'll bring him home and talk to his mother." she smiled up at him as Aya landed on her shoulder for a short rest.

Yushin Okami, Hisoka Takame

The hokage sat in his chair, a cloth over his desk and a bit of water running around the room in Bamboo water pipes. A bird sat on his shoulder, and flew over to Hisoka's shoulder; landing on it and nestling against her. Hisoka herself, would realize that this was her brothers bird.

The hokage gave a small sigh, lifting up the cloth on his desk to show the scratched up headband. "I'm sorry, Hisoka... He didn't make it back.." He leaned back in his chair, looking slightly off to the side; he was always bad at breaking news to someones loved ones.

He glanced over at Yushin, who was probably fondling more with the water in his attempt to avoid the depressing moment.

Satoshi Takeda

Well, now you were left for two options on what to do... You could head off into the village to search for the Chunin you were now going to be incharge of, or you could wait and hope they would be smart enough to bring the report back to the hokage when they returned.

Toki Uchiha, Katsue Inuzuka, Asuka Tsukino

Toki looked over at Asuka before looking over at the building that stood out most in the village. "We have to report back to the hokage, you know that." Toki looked at both of them before sighing and shaking his head.

"Take him home and let um know that he'll probably be in the hospital for a bit. But then meet me at the kage's building. You too, Katsue!" He shouted after her before he jumped off in the direction of the hospital.
