The cities grand bazaar, wares from all over the world can be found within. Shrewd merchants happily haggle away, gouging the customers for every last coin. Though the occasional scuffle occurs, order is largely maintained by a dedicated police force.

"Tch."

A sound characteristic of an angsty teen reverberated through the usually joyous shopping district within Kirigakure. It was a place of opportunity, of possibility, and of course, of deception. To think even the technologically advanced Bazar shared something in common with even the bloodiest of years that Kirigakure had suffered under its Third Mizukage. And now, even the golden home of the merchants found itself threatened. Where happy merchants usually lied, now only complaining and selfish sellers could be found, worrying about their products, about their sales, and more importantly about their lives. Similarly, civilians found themselves lost, unknown of what was occurring, and they relayed their thoughts loud enough for any nearby to hear.

Amongst those that had to unfortunately hear these complaints was Takezo.

With black hair and eyes that were characteristic of those belonging to the Land of Iron, as well as a darkened kimono to match the part, the young Genin sighed loudly as to calm himself, an eye roll and crossed arms accompanying his groan. Though his sword laid strapped to his back, currently he had no use for it. Not unless his Sensei or any of the higher authorities asked him to wack any of the civilians with it. Oh, how he would've enjoyed that!

"Move along now, Mizukage's orders..." it had become routinely by now. A phrase engraved into Takezo's mind, despite the fact that he himself showed little enthusiasm. He was hardly the man for the job, as rather than make the citizens of Kirigakure feel safe, he only confused them more and made their angst grow.

"Is this all you shinobi do...? Surely, there has to be something greater..."

Through the hours of work that the evacuation demanded, Takezo's mind had begun to wonder. This was hardly what he had signed up for. When he had been given the opportunity to learn at the Land of Water, the Samurai had done nothing but wonder at the possibilities. To think he'd be able to challenge the "legendary" Seven Swordsmen of the Mist that he had heard of even back home. Takezo sneered to himself at the thought, causing another evacuating civilian to spit in his direction, though luckily, it had missed.

"I swear I'll cut them all down, I'm sure it'll be more fulfilling than trying to save them..." Takezo muttered to himself as he continued with the procedures. He tapped his foot repeatedly, anxious for the operations to end. After all, surely he had better things to do.

"Attention, our Mizukage has initiated code red throughout the shopping bazar! Please leave the bazar in an orderly manner!"
Someday, there will be no fear. Someday, all will strive for as little as my sight. Oh, when I'm gone, everyone gonna remember my name...
Chinokawaki!


But before that, Kazuo Chinokawaki was a puke. And he knew it. As frustrating as it was, he knew that had he faced a real demigod, he'd undergo a glorious, unimaginable clash. A brutal conflict, mesmerizing in its intensity, in the arena known as his pants: A battle to keep the contents of his bladder in.
Bottom line, he had to prove himself, whether through knowledge or power. Least he could show is discipline. So he coated his emotions, craving for attention, intent, the anger into a shaky shell of a stern face and stoic demanour. If all he had to prove today was remote discipline, so be it.

Till then... let none find me wanting. Or I can forget about them thinking of me at all.

"
I think they want us to know we can handle this without an issue before we get any serious jobs." - he muttered towards Takezo, his team mate.

Takezo was clearly making little effort to hide his annoyance, compounding Kazuo's own grumpiness. His junior for half a year, exchange student from Land of Iron. Kazuo wondered what did he expected of Land of Water. He saw his Kenjutsu exactly once, and once was enough to be impressed. As a team, they'd be great: Kazuo's wide technique roster and Genjutsu proficiency would shape the situation in any way desirable, while Takezo was bringing in the pain. That is, if all goes as planned. If there's even combat action that they can take, going on. Would be a shame if either of them did something only an emotionally shaky teenager could do; wouldn't be Kazuo's first time.

"I for one would want to know anything what we're evacuating them from. Because if it's something we can take on, sooner they're clear, the sooner we may see some action. Or at least have a megaphone, that would speed things up." - he continued towards Takezo.

Sirens had infiltrated the eardrums interrupting the individual's chance from expanding his knowledge as he familiarized himself with the historical figures within the Land of Water. As he sat in tranquility soaking up the knowledge his dark onyx orbs came across, he compared the contemporary Village Hidden in the Mist with the previous Kirigakure that once was known as the Bloody Mist. With the revival of the 12th Mizukage with the help of the Legendary Surgeon Heiwa Sozo, it was only three years ago when the man swore to abandon the name and bloodlust ideal of the Bloody Mist, making Kirigakure a place of new. Though Kirigakure stream now "flowed gentler" advocating for world peace, culturally and genetically that strong killing intent had not abandoned the hearts of the people as it still remained there in the time of war and confrontation. Before the sirens could emit their sounds of warning it was powered off by a foreign source. Succumb to a land of darkness it was impossible for the man to see. Hovering his left hand in front of his face he could see nothing only his ears actively participating as it heard the small breeze emitted from his hand motion. Closing his eyes to sense his chakra he concluded that he was not under any genjutsu. What the hell was this? He thought to himself. A deep sigh emitted from his mouth as his mouth and soon after his "invisible" hand begin to float in the air making small and delicate motions, which in return would manifest a Kanji that mimicked that same symbol bestowed on the Hokage's hat. An orange and yellow scorching ball now magically floated in his left hand, instantly restoring his eyesight. Walking outside of the bookstore, the darkness would seem to dwindle away every step he took. Now outside of the bazaar, he could see and hear the frantic people blindly running for their lives as they had not known what to expect. Injuries were in pursuit as these people had possessed a photographic memory of what the village looked like or what infrastructures would be in there in the way, and once again Sumato was right.

Luckily the sphere of darkness had only lasted for ten minutes. With a seashell in his ear communication that replicated the effects of a Bluetooth wireless device except not running off electricity but by chakra, Sumato Tsuchigumo was able to listen to the demands of the Mizukage. Following Kirigakure's Evacuation Procedure, the jounin was already trained on what to do. Placing a scroll on the floor with his right hand and soon after biting his right thumb after coating it with chakra he'd thrust his hand onto the kanji located within the middle of the scroll releasing all of the content stored within it. A series of grotesque-looking fish released from the scroll flapping up and down as it was summoned away from the body of water. Within a fraction of a section, Sumato started to weave the hand seals in order. Tiger → Dog → Monkey → Snake → Boar → Tiger. With the completion of hand seals, water and moisture from the ground had emerged ensnaring the angler fish in medium-size domes of water that defied gravity and lifted in the air like bubbles. A bright light had emitted from the fish's lure due to luminous bacteria begin to erase the darkness. An army of shinobi proceeded to do the same, as the bazaar and its entire districts were now overtaking by an enlightening fish. The land now filled with luminous light restored residents' vision. With Isamu's lightning eel companions powering the technological devices of the barrier, sirens would flash blue and red warning everyone that the village was under attack.

Evaporating the scorching ball of fire, Sumato would squint his eyes noticing the two genins that matched the descriptions on his ninja datasheet cards. Familiar they were as they were genin team assigned to him only yesterday. It was a shame that he had to introduce himself to a team under such circumstances. Sumato abandoned the Kirigakure's normal infantry's attire, and instead, he wore a dark blue coat and black jumpsuit complete with black boots and a forehead protector that he wore as a bandanna. Sporting a goatee, the brown-haired jounin now stood adjacent to them utilizing the Body Flicker Technique. "I wish we were meeting under better circumstances but greetings Chinokawaki Kazuo and Takezo, I'm your jounin sensei Tsuchigumo Sumato."[/b] he paused as he stroked his goatee while his eyes lingered elsewhere, the man was confused about the whereabouts on the third genin, Kazuya and Tatsuya. He struggled as it could not be helped. Looking to the boys again the words would nonchalantly flow from his pink lips. "We'll be better acquainted later, but your first official mission of Kirigakure shinobi is to evacuate to a safe zone. Keep traveling straight ten miles from here and you'll stumble upon a large tree the only tree in that specific grassland. Once you stumble upon it stick your hand in the tree hole and pull the lever there should unlock an underground hideout. I have to finish up somethings here, but I'll be right behind you." Sumato said in one breath.

A light smile materialized on his face towards the two genins before he would body flicker again. Appearing in the middle of the bazaar, Sumato would begin to generate his chakra into the ground hoping to sense all residents and see if anyone was in any immediate danger. Angeling his head upwards, he'd notice a terrifying power that poured from the Mizukage's own chakra. A humungous avatar* constructed of blood and chakra emerged from Mizukage's residence soaring through the sky as he would tackle the large orbital mechanics that plummeted towards the Land of Water. Sumato eyes filled with admiration and fear as he saw the full power of the Mizukage before. The strength of the Mizukage seemed unmatched in the village and this very moment helped Sumato understand the difference in power levels between him and Isamu Chinoike.

Unresponsive. That was the only reaction Takezo had as their "Sensei" introduced himself to them. It wasn't so much any disgust or distaste that made Takezo almost leap back in response to the man's appearance, no, it was just pure surprise. While his words had most definitely seeped into his ears and reached his brain, Takezo was barely used to the notions of ninjutsu. The ability to utilize nature, hand seals, and whatever else. It was all foreign to him. Relaxing his tensed frame as Sumato stroke his goatee, Takezo instead witnessed at the large amount of naturally formed light throughout the bazaar. Had he taken a part in it? Takezo tilted his head curiously, to him, the man appeared rather lackluster but perhaps there was more than his appearance gave off.

"R-right..."

Though he gulped loudly and nodded, by that point, the man was already gone once more. He had blinked from existence quite literally. "Man I'll never get used to that." Though that wasn't all that surprised Takezo. Looking up, as most individuals did due to the vibrations that reverberated through the bazaar and a loud thumping sound that had assailed their ears, they saw it. A monstrosity built of pure red. The smell of iron reached them even from afar, and it prompted Takezo's sweat to drip down his temples.

"Ninjas? My ass. They're more like mages or something."

Turning to his partner, a so-called Kazuo, Takezo shook his head, he couldn't afford to look weak, much less surprised in front of others. He was a Samurai! And to appear perplexed at the sight of any ninja's doings would be an offense to his homeland. Even if he wasn't a fan of their conservative ways, he still held respect for them.

"That's probably what we're evacuating from." A smirk barely formed on his visage, signaling to the satellite that was promptly thrown away from them. As he had taken a second to calm down, he nodded to himself. That was the level of strength he'd have to face one day. Resuming his stoic facade, Takezo turned around as he begun to walk outside of the bazaar, directly through the direction that Sumato had instructed them too. Without warning, the Genin flickered from existence, and while his speed wasn't on the level that Sumato had displayed, it was enough to make his disappearance sudden, leaving Kazuo to follow in his footsteps.

A Sensei should be someone who knows the student better than the student himself, who the student grows to be warm towards, stays for a while.
A Sensei should not be shuffled around like it's nothing.

Or so Kazuo thought. Was he merely justifying his desire to have a parent figure? Probably. He would not care, though; not while he thought he was right. He wanted to stand up stiff and acknowledge Sumato, to show himself as someone rock-steady, but he was gone as soon as the orders were relayed. And then, the show above. And behold a red horse, in a shape of a meteor, no, a sattelite, that was given power to fall upon Hidden Mist, and oblivion went with it. And behold an avatar, or chakra and blood, and it stood up to the red horse, denying it Kazuo and Takezo.
I may learn from people wielding that power. There's nothing they can't do. There's nothing I won't be able to do.
Awed, daunted, mesmerized by the war in heaven above him, Kazuo barely registered Takezo's remarks, and nothing but his silence and awed eyes was Takezo's reward. It took him a moment to come to himself.

"Takezo?"

In a moment, Kazuo understood that Takezo was already on his way. He sighed as his break in concentration, and momentary foolishness, and body-flickered his legs in a momentum in the only direction Takezo should be going: The direction ordered by Sensei Sumato. Kazuo started off walking, then running, then accelerating steadily. Through careful awareness of exact force of his chakra, he was able to compound his body-flicker in a steady manner that would end up on faster levels than most if not all other Genins. Should be enough to catch up with Takezo momentarily. A boon of experimenting on techniques and chakra, though that was a practice that was fraught with danger. Kazuo learned the hard way that acceleration via lightning release isn't worth the effort, and he was still learning to apply it to boost his reflexes.

What is today? Should we be concerned..? Were the thoughts that would run through Kazuya's head while he and his twin Tatsuya were working on this Chakra hold. This has not been any other sort of training these two have went through. This technique was fairly something new that the twins have been researching and practicing. As they both herd sirens widespread throughout the Village in the Mist, The twins emerged from practically thin air. How long was that today brother? Tatsuya said as they both inhaled the fresh air and emerged from practicing to hold their breaths and slip through the water in the air. I'm not entirely sure.. But I think those are our two other team mates running away from the bazar. He said as he noticed the flickering of their Sensei Sumato and then within a second completely vanish like the vision wasnt there anymore. Growing up in the Hidden Mist Village the twins were usually acquainted with most of the Sensei's. Knowing that Sumato showed up shortly after the Twins conjoined without much recollection he was sorta like a "Breath of Fresh Knowledge."

The twins always knew if they ever had questions or concerns they could run it past Sensei Sumato and he would set them straight on the path of success. Many knew around the Village that the twins were pretty good at catching up with people with their speed. Both twins looked at each other and said Lets Go! And without even a blink of a eye the twins were already running fast enough that it would only take a little for them to catch up to the others. Tatsuya thought to herself These other two have to be the ones that me and my brother are teaming up with according to Sensei Sumato She mumbled as she said out loud Takezo and Kazuo! Those are the other two we are trying to catch up with! Kazuya without even bating a eye he just nodded and continued to get faster and faster. The twins were able to get close enough to be able to see the other two within their eyesights.

Knowing the village by the back of their hands the twins knew exactly where they were heading just by the direction in which they were heading. Sensing that there was high amounts of Chakra being used both Tatsuya and Kazuya knew that these type of Chakra energy had to be coming from Sensei Sumato. Without even batting a eye or head flick these two knew something dangerous was either here or on its way. What could this be..? Kazuya thought to himself as he was finally able to catch his breath since they both finally arrived at the only tree in the forest around the Village. Looking up at the sky noticing it was becoming different they both caught a glimpse at the other two running towards the tree as well.

With his bubble blower, Sumato exhaled into the instrument materializing a large bubble that surrounded the man. Under his command, the bubble would take him wherever he wishes, which was the Kirigakure Outskirts. It's seemingly very capable of both traveling very long distances and floating rather high into the air with no apparent risk of popping. There he would wait for his team to arrive.

After the sudden and devastating declaration by the being known as Madoguchi, it would seem as though as he had retreated into the chakra source as fast as he had arrived. Due to this sudden retreat by the alien threat, the world leaders have ordered all citizens' return effective immediately.
