It had been unexpected but it was also a welcomed thing. Their Raikage wanted to maintain peace Kumo and Oto and she had been chosen with her favorite Bear-like man Seiichi. Having a platoon member that was also her senior made her feel good. The questions she had on why it was her was front and centre in her mind."Seiichi-Sama, was there a reason I was chosen to accompany you?" She asked as her lavender eyes focused on the the man beside her. It really didn't matter what the answer was. After being deployed to Seiichi's Platoon and discovering she fit in, her confidence had grown. she had slowly come to grips with being away from home.
Home. In all honesty anywhere Seiichi was that was her home. There was something about him that made her feel safe and wanted. Was this how a real father treated his offspring? Oh why did he have to pop up? He of course was her biological father. Her thoughts were easier to clear around Seiichi. The man was just grounded where she floated. It made sense since he was considered to be a bear in a man's body. What animal she was didn't matter at the moment.
She looked back at the sky as she marveled at how different it felt being out of Kumo. She felt happier and lighter. It was probably her mood since a lot had been going better for her. Was it actually easier to be happier in better company and away from her toxic family? She believed it. Stretching she looked back at Seiichi. "Looking forward to seeing how things go, it would be handy to train out here." She murmured.
A new training ground and ways to hone her skills outside of Kumo made her excited. There was something about learning new things and becoming a better version of yourself. She smiled as she stretched her arms. She felt a lot lighter and having more energy meant she could get more done. Had she been sleep walking through life until now? It made her wonder.
Shaking her head she grinned at her companion. "I know you won't go easy on me when we do train, I also wonder what it's like in Oto." She said tilting her head.

So often, we run from consequences. Do as you please but do it without regret.
I had occupied these lands long enough to become familiar with its terrain.
I grew thoughtful of the seemingly perpetual rain of Amegakure. A soft sigh, a nearly imperceptible dejected one, filtered out through my lips as I moved along the countryside. The endless cerulean above played host to clouds that billowed along. I was one with them in that moment, an aimless wanderer who observed from the safety of neutrality. A chance meeting with one of Kumogakure's own had allowed me insight into the mind of his native village - Chinetsu Hatsuden. Having been within the depths of Otogakure, I sought to sow the seeds of trust, mutual interest with the land's shinobi at the behest of their overseer. Brusque in my pace, the silhouette of a pair came into my sight. Though a great distance off, I had already ascertained that one was far greater in stature than the counterpart. Almost subconsciously, my fingers lifted to run the pads of my digits along the clean, polished hitai ate at my neck. They would surely know me if by no other means than the proud symbol of Amegakure promoting my allegiance.
I made no alterity in my gait, my arms in full view at my sides and my gaze no more piercing than I had been privy to from the observations of my peers. Before long, we would close the great proximity that existed between us. But it was not to be mistaken - my consistency was no indication of my inability to act at a moment's notice. With chance at my flank, I would make no attempt to detour before our paths had crossed and we were well within earshot of each other.
