Dawn crept along the horizon, splashes of orange, pink, and softer lilac hues made for a beautiful display. Sayuri had left the safety of the caverns and underground tunnels in search of a change of scenery and treats. The forest held many secrets and it was a fantastic place if you knew where to look. It also gave her some time to herself where she could simply think.
Dressed in a rather simple, solid color - of course with her own little insignia embroidered onto a corner or edge- and functional attire consisting of a skirt, shirt, and cape. A simple bag hung at her side under the woolen cape. Going into civilian mode never bothered her much. With a spring in her step, she left the open expanses of land behind and went into the forest, the trees soon enough engulfing her and the pretty display of sky was nothing more than spots you might catch while looking up through the tree canopies. In here dusk and night still seemed to linger. The air was crisp and yet heavy with the scent of the trees and forest floor. It was a welcome change to the musky scents of earth Sayuri often encountered in the village.
Sayuri brushed a piece of hair away from her face and stepped away from the path, venturing further into the wilderness, following a map only she could see. Her ears were alert and while she appeared rather comfortable she knew danger could be lurking around any tree, hide in any shadow. It takes one to know one and all that right?
She would come to a halt at the top of a steep decline, eyes scanning the forest floor for a moment before she settled on her destination and made for it. As she neared she saw the gold.
Or well... It was mushrooms. It didn't stop the lopsided smirk from dancing on her face. With deft fingers she plucked the ones she wanted from the earth and gently put them in her bag. As she rose from her position, one hand on a tree root, the earth below her gave way to her weight. A half-formed curse left her lips as she tried to scramble up the decline to no avail due to the soft earth. she flipped around and decided to just accept her faith, sliding down on her bum until she came to a stop. "Phew..."
She looked up to where she had gone down from. Now she just needed to get back up... With a tight expression, she started to climb, careful with where she put her feet while also attempting to hammer out a step for her to support herself.
[attr="class","exhausted"]Coming to the Rescue Kinda
Just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
Newly minted Genin Josei Senshi or JoJo as she likes to be called was out strolling through the forest, she called it patrolling but it was nothing as official as that. While she was a fully fledged member of the Otogakure military as of right now she was just a kid walking around the forest that was just outside village she was born just happy that she was able to graduate. Suddenly her walk was interrupted by actual danger which was not something she was expecting even though she would tell anyone who would listen that she was on patrol she never expected to find anything.
As she came to a steep decline she could see a person collecting mushrooms she didn't know much about the fungus but she knew that it could be useful so she decided to leave the woman to her own devices, she looked away for two seconds and her quite the commotion as she looked back to where the women had been a moment ago she saw nothing, not even the ground that was there. Pulling on the hem of her gloves in a way that clearly stated that she was ready she rushed in. She was wearing a white button-up blouse and what appeared to be a frilly schoolgirl skirt which was being held up by a pair of suspenders, she also wore a pair of spandex shorts that come down to just over her knee, to cover her bits while she is fighting and such. She didn't really have equipment on her but she rushed in any way.
It seemed as if the ground had somehow collapsed and taken the woman with her. While she looked more than capable enough Jojo was eager to help regardless. Sliding down the decline as if she did this sort of thing every day (when in actuality she was hoping she didn't fall over and end up needing rescuing herself) she made it down to the bottom pretty quickly stopping on the edge able to peer over she could see the woman who looked perfectly fine and had begun to climb her way back to where JoJo was now. "Hey do you need help I noticed you disappear suddenly and came to offer my services, though to be honest you look like you got it".

A voice called out and when Sayuri looked up af round face with wide red eyes met her. Something about the stranger seemed familiar. As if she had seen this one somewhere before. Either way, she would give a short chuckle at the whole situation.
"Heh, as long as I don't fall down again. Mind taking this-"
She gripped a tree root for support and with some difficulty untangled the bag's strap and and threw it up to the stranger - trusting them to stick around rather than take off with her bag and her loot.
"I'd hate falling on it, so if you could hold on to that until I get up, that be great"
She paused, waiting for a reply and used the time to study the young girl a little closer. She had definitely seen her before. The mop of white hair, pale skin, and unique eyes, in theory it shouldn't be so hard to remember. It would come to her. She started to climb again, finding a good rhythm and as she neared the top it was easier to find purchase. Finally at the top she dusted herself off, ran a hand through her hair, removing some dead leaves and small twigs as she reached for her bag.
"Thanks for holding that~"
Suddenly it hit her. The girl's height, her unique appearance, it all fit so well on none other than the newest addition to her platoon! Or at the very least, looked extremely similar to the picture she had been shown... Either way, this would make for an interesting meeting. Perhaps she could get a better idea of who this one was before the difference in rank colored their interactions.
Ooc: sorry for such a crap post didn't want to keep you waiting longer
IC: Jojo reached out and grabbed the pack, "sure happy to help". She figured it was something valuable at least to the woman who fell as why else would she secure it's safety before her own. "So what brought you all the way out here and caused you to fall"‽ Jojo handed the pack back as the woman found her way next to her "my name is Josei by the way but you can just call me Jojo everyone else does".
