Kohaku seemed pleased at this young boy who seemed to have such great determination in his eyes and voice and glared a bit at his reckless older brother."You know, Saki your father never learned many techniques, yet saved the entire village from the Pein long ago. I am quite sure you will be able to achieve the greatness that he once held."she said with a warm smile on her face. She knew that Saki had potential just like his other two brothers, reckless as they were she could not deny that they were great ninjas. She placed a hand on Saki's head and rubbed slightly. Kohaku then stood around with the cursed sword ready to watch this "training" of sorts that Ryouta can apparently do, while waiting for the two other ninjas approach the group.
The whole situation confused Kenshin. He took a step forward letting himself get closer to the group. There was alot of infighting within the group. Was this how the leaf structured their squads, surely this wasn't the unified force of Konoha he had heard about? He gave a smirk at Mamaru. "Maybe you are learning something, Mamaru." The multitude of ninja coming together concerned him but he thought it was far for stumbling upon a training session. "Watch Mamaru, you might learn something." he said crossing his arms and sighing. He was given an introspect into some of the interesting characters around her. "Mind if we join you?" he asked giving his shark-tooth smile trying to appear friendly. He stopped when the Genin proclaimed something about goals and dreams. It didn't really interest him that much. The reason he had been drawn here was the sword, it captured his eye and now he felt curious. He scratched the back of his head. Thinking about his own village and the mist younglings. He remembered back to the time he was that young. Although his father had been stricter and had more conventional ways of teaching him things as he remembered the time he had been tossed into a raging river to control his Suiton.
Saki glared when a rock was thrown to him, growling softly under his breath at the temper comment his big brother made but with a blink of curiousity he looked back over to Kohaku. Well, maybe Kohaku wasn't so bad, he couldn't help but smile widely at her words and scratched the back of his head nervously. So Kohaku really believed in him? He couldn't help but blush faintly at her words as he gave her one more nod with a chuckle. "You better believe it Kohaku!" he said happily before turning back to his big brother once again, noticing another boy who had been talking to the older male and gave him a thumbs up. "That's right, I'm Naruto Uzumaki's son too!" he said to him.
"So, when does this training begin? I'm totally ready" Saki said with a soft chuckle and grin waiting for his brother to let them know when they were going to start.
Ichiro looked at the kid his Sensei told him to. He looked almost exactly like his father. Ichiro wasn't impressed though, that he was still a Genin despite his age. Ichiro had to look away when the woman-Kohaku- and the boy -Saki- shared a moment. When Saki stated he was Naruto's son too, Ichiro simply smiled at the boy, unable to think of anything to say back at him.
It seemed like everyone on here was on friendly terms with one another which made Ichiro feel like an outsider. He looked over at the voice that asked if they could join in on some training. The older man looked scary, and his teeth didn't help at all. Ichiro looked at the other boy, who seemed roughly around his age, maybe a bit more.
He looked back to his Sensei for answers, he didn't actually ask though, feeling it wasn't right for him to speak just yet. Ichiro wouldn't mind training with the two strangers, their techniques could give them away as to what village they were from.
"Yes uncle," Mamaru says as he starts to take in visual information on the group as they head towards them.i really hate talking in groups, especially with people that I don't know. Mamaru starts to slowing back away from the group; staying close enough to hear whats being said and to help his mentor if needed, but far enough back that no one will try to start conversations with him.
((( OOC: alright im heading to bed its late and i have to get used to waking up earlly again for college classes plus work so ill be on tomorrow night and )))
Ryouta listened calmly as both Kohaku and Saki began to get to a agreement which was a nice change. Ryouta also noticed that this seemed to have cheered Saki up more as he asked when they would begin training. Just as he was about to answer him one of the two people from the group approached him and asked if they could join in on the training. Ryouta noticed no ill intent from the man just looked at him and said, "Sure why not, plus it'll help these two with getting use to deal with people not from around here in all honesty." Ryouta said to the man noticing his sharp teeth but didn't say anything about them. This training session would be different then they planned on doing so at first, but it would still be informative to the genin regardless.
Kohaku looked at the other boy, Ichiro, who seemed to be nervous from the approach of the two foreign ninjas and then looked at them. The older man with sharp teeth reminded her of a certain missing-nin she had read about in some historical scrolls but couldn't remember the name. She listened as he asked to join in the training, an odd thing for an older man to ask a squad leader with his squad. She then noticed the large sword on the man's back and had come to the conclusion that he wanted to have a friendly duel, to see what Ryouta's sword can do."I'm fine with letting Ryouta 'train' with you with this sword if that's what you want. I wouldn't normally do this but you look like you really want this."she said as she tossed Ryouta his cursed sword. As much as she didn't want Ryouta to do this, he already accepted to let the two foreigners join in the training. Besides that it would help Ryouta to control that damned sword in the long run.I hope this doesn't turn out too baddly.Kohaku thought to herself, almost regretting the decision to let this happen.

This power, isn't meant to be held in the childish hands..... ▄▄▄▄▄▄▄ ▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄ ▄▄ ▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄ ▄▄▄▄ ▄▄▄ ▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄ ▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄ ▄
The walk was long, and due to the rain, moody, but yet, since the surroundings were damped with water glistening. It was almost some kind of combination between moody yet astounding at the same time. He took a nice pace as he crossed the terrain slowly, gazing at it all as he made his way towards Sound Village. Even if most of the visibility was blocked out somewhat by rain, the bits and pieces you could see were not too bad to the eye. His murky, and muddy foot steps, left behind as he trailed on his way toward his destination. He tilted his rain hat as to save his hair from getting wet. The trees swayed to a melodic song as the winds blew them on key. The cloudy sky, shedding tears of beauty on to the lands. Sound Village, got ever so much closer. Getting from Amegakure, to Sound Village, wasn't as fast as getting from Konoha to the land of Sand. His mind wondered, he pondered on how well his shadow clone was doing on his search for the lab. The last he remembers of it being spotted, was somewhere between to neighboring countries. As of late, thanks to the somewhat changes to the land, maybe it would be undetectable, to those who were too unintelligent to even question its whereabouts. It all came down to hoping that he would be the only one with desires to find the place. On top of that, he would most likely be the only one who could really understand Orochimaru's work, seeing as how he was young prodigy in the arts, and extremely intelligent. He glanced to the side, as he tried to picture where exactly in the desert it could be. Though since the shadow clone needed no sleep, or had hunger, that would speed up the searching process. Placing his right hand in to his left hand's sleeve, resting one on top of the other, he looked ahead of himself as he neared the village. Some might question his sudden arrival to the village, but the reply would be just simple. Is it wrong to not want to casually visit your allied country? Surely their bond could be just as big as Konoha's and the land of Sand. .Elsewhere, the shadow clone finally made its way in to the leaf country, in order to pass the borders and finally reach the land of Sand. With its speed, finding that laboratory was of no doubt, would be an easier task. He darted through the forests, taking notice of all things around him, to make sure he hadn't passed up a chance to find a lab on his way there. Seeing how there were some labs in the leaf as well. Though the one they were looking for would be bigger. As the biggest one, had most of what they needed. Once found, he would let his real self know of its location. Even though the search would be long, the fruits of their labor would be far more tasty than that of anything they could ask for. With no need of a squad, and being sent out on business from the Amekage, he had access to anywhere he wanted. A momentary nomad? He could get used to that.

Thoughts: To the destination. Mood: Ready to negotiate Where: Outskirts of Amegakure, heading toward Sound Village With: Lonesome Shadow Clone Appearance: His Appearance
Ciero had finally made it to the gates of the Konoha Village, his eyes and ears were open. The Ookami no kage had heard several tales revolving around mishaps happening between their ninjas and ninjas of other persuasions.The boy walked up to one of the men guarding the entrance and told him that he was a simple traveler just passing through. That he was no threat to the village or its people. The guard allowed him passage but as he took a step into the village, he felt several eyes upon him and he knew Koromaru did as well. The pup had released its bite on the mask and tensed up like there was danger all around. This made the boy uneasy within these parts but his mission remained what it was and he needed proper and correct information if he wanted to find the sages and hunt them down like animals. Ciero's eyes scanned the area around and it seemed rather safe. He walked around and sighed. "Where to find information?" He asked himself before Koromaru barked and hid his muzzle in the boy's hair. Ciero rolled his eyes and continued his walk, looking at several shops, searching for his answers. He didn't like it here; he didn't like it one bit.
Akuma stared at himself shirtless in the mirror standing right next to his closet. However he wasn't marveling at how great his body looked, he was staring at the new set of ink on his right arm. It was the mark of the ANBU black ops which he had recently received. However he was anything but happy to get it. Instead he felt a mixture of distrust, sorrow, confusion, and doubt. Suddenly he was lost in a flash back. He remembered him and his best friend Tobirama on missions for the ANBU root division. Then his flash back jumped to the night his best friend tried to assassinate the leader of ANBU root. After Tobirama escaped and fled the Leaf Village, Akuma was told that Tobirama was a traitor and even killed his own mother. Then in reward for protecting the root Leader, he was made an official ANBU black op member.
Snapping out of his flash back, Akuma put his shirt back on then headed out of his room grabbing his favorite katana on the way out. As he left his house, he disappeared in a flash and reappeared on top of the Hokage Faces looking down over the entire Leaf Village. His arms folded across his chest, a blank stare on his face, and his mouth closed making not even the slightest sound.
Ichiro was read to fight, but wasn't expecting training so soon. I was hoping we could wait for the last team mate to get here, but I may not get another chance to see these strangers in action.He thought, scanning the environment around him.
The woman - Kohaku is still here, there must be reason for that right? He looked over Saki. He looked just slightly older then himself, so he shouldn't be able to do much, but then again, he was Naruto Uzumaki's son, so he might have some power behind him.
Ichiro took a deep breath and looked at his Sensei. " I am also ready when ever you are as well, Sensei."
Kenshin smiled as they responded back although some seemed weary of him and Mamaru, a valid point and probably a good way to think not trusting anyone right away. He wasn't sure what he was going to accomplish by introducing himself or talking to them but he had decided to do it anyway. His tone and outlook changed however when the sword was thrown to the older male ninja. The sword still wrap and sealed caught his eyes and he couldn't help but let off a gleam of curiosity. The female was right though, this had all started because of his eye catching that sword of his. It probably wasn't one of the smartest ideas and he should have just went on his way but the thrill of it excited him and enticed him. Sparring against a new sword always set something off within him. He nodded "Wanting to show your squad higher ninja combat? Your name is Ryouta? My name Kenshin and my disciple is Mamaru." He felt it was good to introduce oneself before any form of combat, its customary. "We are passing through the country and thought it would be wise to inform your village so we are not targeted."
So first day and they'd get to see brother fight? Hah, this strangers would certainly lose, big brother was really strong and talented, there was no way he could be beaten in his eyes. Saki didn't like the look of the strangers, but their number was larger right? and if big brother said it was ok then there couldn't be a problem. Saki looked to Kohaku wondering what she thought, a smile crossing his face as he heard her words. He wondered when he and Ichiro would get to join in combat, after all it was supposed to be their training. Smiling over to the younger boy, he gave him a thumbs up and a nod.
There were some eyes on her, she blinked with curiosity. So...konoha wasn't used to having suna shinobi around when it wasn't around exams or her friend Kami.Taking a look once again though, she noticed the eyes had moved from her to somewhere else, blinking curiously she followed their eyes to a strange white haired male. Another outside was in konoha? she hadn't been expecting that but it seemed like the people of konoha weren't either judging by their stares.
Whatever it was, it wasn't really her concern right? Suna was her home, not Konoha.
Yet still, it was her best friend's home and if a stranger did anything harmful to suna while she had seen him it wouldn't be too good of a thing for the alliance between the two nations. Slowly and carefully, the suna shinobi approached the strange male, eyes glued to him as she spoke up. "You're not from around here are you?" it was quite a thing for her to ask since she also wasn't a shinobi from konoha.
Hakumei neared a Village. It was way too small to be The Leaf Village, but none the less it was a place to rest.... for now.
Hakumei walked down the streets, looking at all the vendors. She had some money and was hungry, but decided to wait, prices could get cheaper as the day goes, but she also didn't want to spend her money because it was all she had. Sighing, Hakumei continued lookng around, ignoring the hunger pains in her stomach.
As Hakumei walked around, her thoughts turned to her mother; Yukita Katayanagi. The last time she had seen her was the night she had become a Jonin. Her fists clenched as she remembered her mother telling her that Hakumei wasn't allowed to train students, as she was a risk. It still hurt ,thinking about it. Hakumei had always wanted to teach a Squad.
Regaining her senses, she walked through the entirety of the Village, and quickly left, not wanting to stay there any longer. Hakumei really just wanted to get to the Leaf Village.
