"Ah - ya know it would have been in poor taste if I hadn't remembered something. Here - you'll want to take this. I'd suggest you do so as soon as possible."

As he said this Takewa dug into a pouch on the inside of his jacket pocket. The moment that he did such he would be interrupted by the voice of Hinome - looking up with that same focused expression upon his face though now with a slight smirk upon his lips. The colors she wore werent...they werent like her - but it wasnt a bad look on her. He couldnt put his finger on it but there was something different about Hinome - an air about her that wasnt what he was used to. His hand moved almost of its own accord - never losing sight of what it was that he was doing as he spoke to her - but when he answered in truth he would not know what she was talking about at all, which would be weird, considering she most certainly heard the voice of Takewa...a Takewa. His hand sifted out two red pills, clear and seemingly teeming with a very virulent mixture within. Setting his hand upon Sayu's chest in an almost drug-dealer fashion of discretion he left one sitting in the fold of his robe's flap and approached the table that was there between where Hinome was entering the Kitchen from and where he was standing. His hobbling via crutch in comparison to the previous Takewa's bi-pedal stature was something going under the radar that neither of them were aware at the moment anyone should be the wiser to. He set his hand on the table and looked up at Hinome, leaning on the crutch as he spoke:

"Huh? Yeah, we're fine - must have been someone outside or something. There seems to be a lot going on right now, an attack, a riot, who knows in times like these. Sayu and I are going to investigate it - maybe you should stay here and keep yourself safe. Here. I think you'll want to take one of these. If you've ever taken any advice from me, let it be that - if anything else."

As he said this he moved his hand and there was another red pill sitting there on its surface. He didnt bother telling her what it was for. She would know - and in turn, know exactly what time it was - or rather the Hinome he knew would certainly know that without any second guessing. That being said he hobbled back over to the door and looked at Sayu. Lowering his head he thought about the situation, what he was about to do, and how far he fell from grace - at least in the eyes of what he had considered to be his potential, where he had thought that he would be in the future compared to where he was now. A chuckle couldnt help but leave his lips as he thought about the matter and with his free arm shoved the door open, only to make way out the door and into the chaos of Konoha streets.

There was something ominous and they walked toward the front door of the estate to exit. He could hear the footsteps of both men echoing through the estate. He could feel his heart pumping loudly with adrenaline and he could also hear Takewa’s heart as well. The annoying fly that whisked around the room since last night—he could sense it, even see it without directly looking at it stuck in place batting its wings. Everything felt it was in slow motion, even them walking. Sayū felt in touch with everything. It was an odd feeling and challenging task to explain exactly what, but he felt one with the universe and the energies that populated their planet. This feeling of “flow” wasn’t broken until he felt Takewa’s hand placed upon his chest. His eyes focused on the back of his heel, but startled by the hand he looked up at the man and then down at the hand. His bandaged right hand following up to his chest as he slipped his hand under Takewa’s and took grasp of the pills.

Heeding the advice of his mentor, he swiftly and without hesitation downed the pills before glancing over toward Hinome while Takewa responded to her question. He didn’t respond, only observed. Deciphering her tone and body language. Clearly, she was annoyed, yet in the same emotion, she was worried. A gentle soul she was. He knew why she was frustrated. They’d practically grown up together, he didn’t need to guess. He knew her like he knew the back of his hands. Slowly, yet surely a smile appeared upon his face as he walked up her only stopping with an inch of distance between their body. Sayū wasn’t much for public displays of affection, despite being in his own estate. Another party involved only made it uncomfortable for him. However, at this moment, he displayed affection. The one of a lover. His hand slowly rising up as he caressed the side of her cheek up down until his hand cupped her chin, which was then used to pull her in as he planted a gentle kiss upon her forehead.

“Don’t worry. Everything will be better once we are back. The world will be a better place.”

There was not a moment of hesitation after as he walked through the door and awaited Takewa’s arrival outside of the estate. That soft, loving expression now outstripped by the previous one that raced through his blood, causing it to boil uncontrollably. Adjudication for Heiwa. The Hyūga Lord was correct in his assumption as he smacked his lips together lightly before licking his lips. He could taste it. That pungent taste when blood is in the air. It was sweet to him. The man inhaled deeply as he closed his eyes so he could better feel everything. Feel the moment. The smell of blood, the smell of burnings, the sound of agonizing screams, and then—he sensed it, or rather, sensed them. Mowa Sozo, the adopted son of Heiwa Sozo, and with him, Ketsugo Uzumaki, the protégé of Heiwa Sozo. But he wasn’t the only one, there was also Yozu Uchiha, another student of Heiwa Sozo.

Then it occurred to him.

What had they done for him? Was it not the duty of the student to carry on the legacy of their master? Their sensei, slaughtered for all they know, and they stand here—neither investigating nor curious. Yet instead, they either idling with their time within their clan compound or engaging in heated combat against one another. They were not worthy. They were the first and foremost reasons why this world did not deserve the Pillar of Peace. Removing them would be equivalent to the surgeon removing a tumor. And he would be the one to remove them. His eyes snapped open and as they did the veins around his became bulging due to the increased blood flow. With an instance, the Uchiha Compound scouted out and within the same instance, it was entirely surrounded with his presence sharing similar seals to the ones that surround the Hyūga Compound, Heavenly Domain. Lastly, within the middle of her glance, a Flying Thunder God etched into the ground and one upon her back. It was not visible for it was scribed into the earth, which merely took a second which was plausible due to him ejecting chakra through his Byakugan and precise chakra control.

All that was left was the arrival.

“Let us begin cleaning”

The words escaped his mouth as he reached over toward the shoulder of the original Takewa. Just as his shoulder had been tightly grasped, they both had been instantly transported to the Uchiha Compound. The sound of their feet landing on the ground caused a ghastly echo through the compound. It must’ve been shocking for them. The sudden arrival of the two who seemed to be unexpecting of a guest. Especially for Yozu Uchiha, who appeared to be occupied in thought. The two arrived in a tasteful fashion. Back-to-back, Takewa Sozo facing the Uchiha Clansmen while the Sayū Hyūga faced the Uchiha Clan Lord. A sinister smile painted upon his face and his head tilted to the side as he scanned the Uchiha up and down. He nodded his head as he did so—the whole y-axis of the world would begin to shift up with him causing an intense sensation of vertigo to everyone excluding the two gentlemen that had arrived. The effects are absolutely sickening. They’d begin to feel such as powerful sense of dizziness that they’d vomit on the spot. This was, of course, had the correct precautions not been taken. In the same moment he nodded his up and down, and then stopped, so would the shift of the y-axis.

“I cannot even begin to fathom the disappointment, couldn’t even put it into words. This urge that has overcome me, this rage, it seems that it’ll only be satisfied by your demise. It seems the Supreme Surgeon had entrusted his legacy to tumors. From here forth, we will conduct the rest of the surgery and start anew. This world will know peace once again … or it shall burn.”

His words were tainted with disgust, rage, and absolutely no remorse. This was a man who could no longer be reasoned with. Once he had set his sights upon a goal, there was absolutely no person, nothing, that could cause him to waver. As the last words escaped from his lips, out of his sleeve fell out his katana, Nagaregyaku. As it fell out he gripped the katana by its gold and white handle and pointed the tip of the dark-steel blade toward the woman, his intentions clear with the stage having been set.

Her voice finally managed to get to them, finally noticing her presence she hoped for them to snap out of the unusual behavior that was kind of starting to freak the indigo woman out. She met their gaze, shifting her gaze to Takewa only when he started to approach her with the support of his clutches. Then she followed the movements of his hands when he started getting closer. His hand revealed two red pills one that he handed to Sayu who seemed to take it without any question or resistance towards Takewa, leaving one in his hand as he approached her and closed the distance between them.

She folded her arms more to hug her figure from the cold coming in from the doors that were still opened but also because she was curious about what Takewa was gonna say. Hinome stood there shocked and confused to hear it wasn’t them but most likely someone outside. She was sure she heard them… did she? His statement started to make her question herself a little, perhaps it was some of the kids in the compound. But they shouldn’t be around this time of the day. He did tell her there were some riots going on because of the chaotic state the country was in, she was sure things had calmed down by now. Had her isolation made her lose touch with the world? Her eyes shifted back to the pill when he laid it down on the surface for her. ‘What are these even for? I’ve never seen them take these.’ She never doubted Takewa’s intentions since he was the first person she would go to for advice and medical aides. But something about this felt off, he felt different... Not just him but the both of them. She was staring at the surface as Takewa hobbled towards the door and out of her sight outside. Despite her worries and panicky expressions, she managed to calm down a little bit when Sayu approached her. A soft caress followed by a gentle kiss on her forehead soothed her slightly, he never was one to display affection so she knew even by the most subtle and smallest actions he initiated he cared for her. The distance was gone for a few seconds and the uncomfortable and weird feeling was gone. A promise of peace and safety for them would come he said, upon their return, everything would be back to normal. She watched him then turn around and leave with Takewa, leaving her alone in the compound. But safe from what? She was confused again, do they possess more intel than she does? Was there another threat? Had they been distant due to the chaos of the village? She had a hard time reading them, and she couldn’t question anything about their plans, actions, or intentions because as soon as they were in her grasp they flew away quickly. They believed she would be better off at home, she would be safe… but she needed to know what for.

“This sucks!” She spoke out loudly by the time they were already gone. She leaned on the surface as she inspected the red pill, she had so many questions about what happened. She truly wanted to chase after them, the sudden clinginess of needing to know their safety was eating away her patience. It was something she usually never did but times were different and so were the majority of humanity. She grabbed ahold of the red pill and placed it in her pouch, she couldn’t take it... Not yet. She wasn’t sure what it did and with the weird aura they had, she couldn’t really trust it either. She brought her hands up to her face and raised them up to her roots, running her fingers through her hair as she closed her eyes in signs of frustration trying to tense down. “I need a stroll, I need to get out of here. I’ve been inside too long! A stroll around the compound wouldn’t hurt anyone.” And so she walked over to the door entrance and put on her sandals, and left her home to look around the compound. She hadn’t seen her clansmen in a few days and their safety was as important as hers.

-The woman left the compound...but ever so slightly had she stuck around just a moment she would hear it...something inside the compound that was stirring ever slightly. In the moment that she left the manor - and shut the door behind her, there would be a silence that would befall any abode that was void of occupancy. Then...it would disrupt, step, step, step, one after the other being taken and a rattling of armor being strapped up. It took its time and it was quite deliberate, as should anyone be in the case that they had the intention of tailing someone. These feet of jade color descended a stairway into the main floor, and in the doorway of the kitchen from which she had just left to exit into the outside of the manner there stepped a jade figure from around the corner, menacing looking and silent save for the fact that its breathing was heavy and distorted from behind the mask upon the helmet. The deep jade was contrasted by the bright yellow sash around the chest that lead up underneath the bright Kamidogu over its right shoulder. He stood in the shadow of the room, light cast over his opposite shoulder as he watched her from within the wall of the compound (Had she continued to exit, if not he would do this still from upstairs). Then when he figured the gap had been well enough, even for one of the esteemed Hyuga clan - he would step slowly towards the door, and walk straight through it, like a phantasm both in countenance, physical structure, and almost all forms of detection otherwise. His purpose in following the woman? Who knew? Only she would have those answers soon enough.-

In all honesty, the Hyuga felt like a nervous wreck once she tiptoed out of her house. That safe space she hid in for the past days after all the chaos, anxiety, and depression she went through. Now that the two people she cared deeply for were all strange towards her she felt lost. More lost than she ever felt throughout her life. But what difference did that make when a facade was all she ever had known. Was the village really having riots now? That could be the worst timing after the loss of humanity’s pillar of hopes and dreams. But from the looks of it nothing deemed to be dangerous or chaotic out of the house. She brought her hands to her eyes as she rubbed them to make sure if she really wasn’t missing anything. But the view was beautifully harmonious, nothing to be hinted at as any threat that would pose upon her.

With a confused expression, she stepped forwards as she continued her walk around the compound. Surely there weren’t many people out here like there usually would be but she could still overhear conversations or those who enjoyed the outside breezes. There’s no hinted panic or anxiety from their voices, everyone, and everything seemed at peace. Do Takewa and Sayū know something is about to happen soon? Or were they paranoid? A frustrated sigh left her lips as she strolled on. That causes some of her clansmen to wonder what’s the matter, this leads to a conversation of small talk. When was the last time she ever had time to sit back and check up on them anyway? And thus she started to let go of the negativity she felt earlier on and replaced it with joy, the joy that she got to talk to someone for some time. Of course, she had a small talk with plenty of the people who she passed by on her stroll, how they seemed so happy to see her. This was something to distract her worries for a little while.

However… she didn’t feel 100% safe either. Have you ever had that heavy feeling in your stomach? Achingly trying to get your attention to think straight. It was as if her intuition was telling her that she wasn’t alone with her clansmen in here. And so while on her walks she looked around herself to see if anything seemed off, but she also thought it could’ve been paranoia, but the thing about paranoia is that it usually comes from a place of truth.'Why do I feel so uneasy?'

=The woman stepped out of the home, and where did she find herself? Why...another home of course. A home within a home as she found herself among her people - a place that she could feel comfortable and as she should feel...safe. However this only raised more questions then it answered in honesty. What did the two men that had left the estate previously meant? Were they lying? Pulling a cruel prank? Or maybe, just maybe - they had been completely out of their mind as an entirety? Very little could tell, for as she went about her daily routine at the compound she would find that nothing seemed to be truly out of the ordinary. Perfectly balanced...as all things should be. . . but life was a disease in itself. One that did not leave room for other things to thrive in spite of it. One that did not simply move out of the way courteously - and allow another to simply have its way; no life was something that if left unchecked in its prime ability would threaten to grow and push till beyond the comprehension or control of any outside force. So the question was...what was it - that truly saw to balance? What was it - that took the duty upon its own shoulders to make sure that things were in check. . . or in this case who was it that dirtied their hands with the blood of injustice - to properly ink their pen so that they may revise the history books a'new?! The answer was always among you, as the answer was among her. In the shadows.

The moment that she had stepped out of the compound there were already eyes upon her with malicious intent - weak and fledgling as it may the intentions still meant no good and were distant from her - across from their property at the manor a group of men, their very own blood - Hyuga Jonin pretending to be on their best behavior...and yet these men plotted upon her. The moment that she started to move on about their way they tailed her. Looking to find a moment of opportunity to make their move they stalked under the guise of normality...yet they did not get their chance - the two were silently hooked at the back of their legs upon the sleeve of their pants and snatched to the floor, however before they could even make impact with the ground they were snatched off into the darkness of a small alley - restrained before they could so much as scream. As she continued on having her conversations and interacts with others - it could be seen if one payed very close, very essential attention to the minute details going on around them. A mugging happening in the distance - the culprits snatched through a window. A skilled pick pocket set to cross paths with Hinome, needless to say ready to throw his plan into action and "accidentally bump" her so that he may rob her of any possessions stopped in his tracks looking like nothing more then a man standing in the road lost in his thoughts - daydreaming....when in fact he was set in paralysis by a technique untraceable to the naked eye and set in precision...silently and distantly stopped before he could set anything to motion against her. She started to make small talk with people here and there and for a moment her and another citizen began to speak - when another man whom been shifted through the cosmos with a version of himself that longed to enjoy the unrestrained thrill of killing started to approach them both from behind. Snatched - a green silhouette bursting silently and yet ever swiftly to him, embracing his full body in arm and covering both his mouth and pinching his nose with his fingers (ensuring he can not scream) before it jumped into the air carrying the man away ensuring they never even know that he was there to begin. Everything was rolling about her day as it should be...everything was rolling about her day the only way that it could be - he would see to it that it not transpire any other way. Despite his best efforts he could tell that the woman was still uneasy. He could read it all through the prowess of his naibugan - small things that others may or may not put together he did, the temperature and activity of certain parts of the brain, the frontal lobe, activity in the limbic system and the facial tells that followed to telegraph as well as posture. She was holding conversation with people...but her right foot - it was pointed away. In understanding body language one could see that almost all times when someone is having a conversation you can learn a lot about their mindset by their feet...if pointed to the conversationalist - then they are interested and attention is set to that person and the conversation. If away? Then typically the person is not interested, worried of something else, or wants to get away for some reason or another. She was uneasy, and he thought he was doing so well per the moment. As she walked - so did he, sometimes in the shadows, sometimes blended in the crowd, and at moments like right now up on the roof of an adjacent building to her, looking down watching from birds eye view to maintain overwatch on her. For now he had been studying this place...he was starting to piece together that things were not the same as where he was from...for some reason. Something wrong was going on...something he was studying...figuring out. But maybe...just maybe - the next moment that the woman is alone, or (source forbid) she need his help - it would be a better solution to confront her with his questions forthright...and not to mention be truthful unto her about the nature of himself and his intentions when he gave her the pill. Though admittedly knowing his own mind set in strategy and action - he was somewhat nervous. He could tell she'd not taken the pill yet...and time was of the essence if things expanded further beyond what he had initially planned for them to go. How much time truly did he have?

‘You’re naive’

The strict words that escaped her father’s mouth every now and then popped up into her mind. Why now, she wondered to herself. The irony of a childhood memory at the right time was because she was completely unaware of her surroundings, something that wasn’t usual. Whilst she believed she was completely safe around her clansmen she wasn’t aware of the direct spiteful and harmful intent they hid for her. They held masks on and smiled at her face, completely fooling her with their play of charades. It was time for her to wake up and come back to her senses, but she couldn’t snap out of her current state. She carried her figure around the compound and the homes of the elders, children, and young adults that all approached her with enthusiasm. Only for someone else to protect her from the shadows from the threats that she could’ve faced. But it didn’t take long for the woman to realize something about this harmony seemed… off.

Glancing at the man in the middle of the road as he seemed to be daydreaming while she continued on her stroll. It wasn’t until she reached the gardens area where usually the herbalists took care of the greens or harvested them for medicine, tea, or any other necessities that she stopped in her tracks. She wrapped her arms around herself as she got lost in her thoughts. ‘I should feel safe here, right? They told me I would be. And the ice kings gone right?’ There it was, the insecurity of safety had held a grasp onto her, unable to shake it off she was constantly doubting if staying here was the right thing to do. Why were things so different today? Where was her confidence? What was the difference between herself a few weeks ago and now? Everything seemed fine, comfortable, and safe. It was time for a change, she was aware that she could no longer feel fine with the way things currently are and have been her whole life. She needed to find her way at the end of the tunnel to finally find her true goal, her own destiny, and thus; the person she was meant to become. It was time to acknowledge her weaknesses and grow stronger. She gazed around the area, admiring the beautiful flowers, and what caught her eye was a small bud that needed boosting to bloom into what they’re meant to be. She related to the bud, she too had to grow more and learn more about herself. She needed a journey to connect to the world to find her own connection within… and find true peace. She looked around herself despite believing to be fully alone she felt someone was watching her back, actually… she felt a pair of eyes this whole time on her but now that she was alone it was unbearable to ignore as they were burning in the back of her head. “Hey… I know there’s someone there, please reveal yourself.”

Walking around the village was a young boy who had just finished running errands for his mother, This boy had black hair that held a heavy blue tint which made his hair appear blue instead of black like that of his Uchiha mother, as well as gaining her skin color which was a fair caramel pigmentation. His eyes were a pale white which came from the roots of his Hyūga father, which gave his basic appearance a unique look since it was a combination of 2 different bloodlines. He wore a 2 toned blue sleeveless high-collar shirt, with black pants and black sandals which held leg warmers that matched his shirt. The child however wasn't by himself as his 8 month old pet wolf Sandāmaru was walking beside him on his left side; with both of them wearing a necklace resembling the Uchiha crest while only Daichi wore a set of earrings resembling the Hyūga crest. “Alright Sandā, let’s go home. Mother is probably waiting for us, plus I have to meet up with Master Yozu for more Wind and Fire Style training.” Sandāmaru gave the boy a smile with a wag of his tail as if he were excited about the training just as much as Daichi was. The two of them then bolted off in the direction of the Uchiha compound with excitement, making everything and everyone they ran past look like blurred figures.

“Hey Dai, what technique are we going to use on master Yozu thi--?” The little wolf stopped speaking as It was almost as if an omen in the air could be felt as the wolf even could... feel the danger lingering in the air. Why is Sandā so worried? Could there be something wrong in this place? Without a warning unlike before it was much... quiet. This was definitely a weird situation, especially since the place was just full of life before he left not even 3 hours ago; Daichi ran up to his house and took off his sandals at the door before heading inside. Walking to the kitchen area of his home to sit the groceries on the table, he noticed that Shizuka wasn’t anywhere downstairs so he figured she’d be in her room or something, however as the young boy searched his house and called out of her, not only was there no answer, she was just gone. Even after entering her room, the only thing he had seen outside of the furniture and clothes was the bladed pocket bo-staff she was teaching him how to use, but it was smaller due to it being in it’s “pocket” form. As such, he picked it up and slid it between the strap of the sack on the back of his waist so the staff was poking out either side of it.

“Where is she? She wouldn’t just leave without sending a messenger crow to tell me.” After that thought, he’d run back downstairs and put on his sandals to get ready to go outside. “Hey, I can smell a few people around close by, why don’t we go ask them what's going on?” Daichi nodded his head to the suggestion of Sandāmaru, but if he was confused as to why he couldn’t hear anyone, as they followed the scent which led the two of them to a playground, they noticed the scent was coming from toys that were left near the slides and swings. But why? Why would people just leave their toys laying around like that? Especially toys that looked as nice as those, there was even a small teddy bear just laying on the ground, something was off about this whole situation. “Sandāmaru, let’s split up, you check everywhere outside and I'll check the houses. Someone HAS to be here…” With that plan in mind, Daichi went off to begin searching every house starting with Master Yozu’s. At this point, the young boy could already feel his heart starting to pound out of fear that the one thing he feared the most had just become a reality, but there was a part of him that wanted to believe everything was fine. “Hey, master Yozu, are you home? Where is everyone?” Again, he received no answer just like when he was calling for his mom, Daichi searched every room in her house and found no-one. His breathing continued to become faster and more unstable as he ran out of her house and began bursting into every home within the compound. “AUNTY?! - UNCLE?! - LADY NANIKA?! - WHERE THE HELL IS EVERYONE?!!”

The stress of everything began eating away at him more than usual, as such after searching half the compound just by running house to house, he decided to activate his Byakugan to search the remaining houses. The veins near his right temple started to bulge due to the increased blood flow to his eye and his pupil became more distinct. Looking around the rest of the compound as he ran around, searching through the walls of every house and finding no trace of anyone, and after reaching the front of the compound, Daichi fell to his knees and deactivated his Byakugan. “They’re all gone… they have to be. First Ryoka… now my mom, master Yozu, Lady Nanika…. And everyone else.. No wait, maybe Sandāmaru found someone...” Knowing this was unlikely, the boy just didn't want to accept the fact everyone was gone. However, once the wolf pup returned to his side, he just gave a slight whimper while putting his ears, head, and tail down.

He for some reason had recalled a story from the past that had been described to be quite similar to this. Though the difference is that there were no traces of it so could something be wrong? It wasn't that he had figured it out but he just couldn't help but to be reminded of it, still he couldn't accept it if they had disappeared like it had in the past. Denial. Daichi continued to shake his suspicions as he advanced toward the compound once more and had called out for anyone in the area. Fell on silent ears as he walked out of the compound, almost as if he was mumbling to himself. "No... It can't be that. I must be overthinking this." he paused, the tone can be perceived as that he was unable to form sentences. "N-no.. It can't be that, they wouldn't leave me without letting me know in advance if they're going somewhere... right?" Still, he remained in denial. A sharp jolt of pain had engulfed his particular eyeball as he ran out of the compound into the forest. Seemingly in the direction of his other clan's compound though at this point he was becoming more frantic and irrational in his thought process. “Ever since Suhaku disappeared it was almost as if things had gone wrong for the clan. An Uchiha attempted to overthrow Lady Yozu. And now this?”

Reminiscing on all the time he had with the few members of the Uchiha clan who treated him like family. Yozu being like a second mother who would take care of him whenever his actual mother would leave on mission and be gone days at a time, Lady Nanika who was an elder was one of the nicest elders outside of her husband Haido who treated him like their grandchild. After running for quite some time, he came upon the Hyuga compound but didn’t realize it from all the emotion he was going through. As he was running, the rope that’s always around his waist got wrapped around his ankle and prevented him from being able to keep his balance to fully extend his right leg; As such, Daichi ended up tripping and rolling a couple feet across the ground. Not realizing who he was next to, the boy stood up slowly while unwrapping the rope from his ankle and speaking out loud without realizing it. "Nobody's home, where the hell did they all go?"

"Her lily hand her rosy cheek lies under,
Cozening the pillow of a lawful kiss

In her room, Yuhara was practicing her art on a canvas she had bought from a store that sells all sorts of art supplies, from paint to markers to digital much like her own. She brushed her platinum hair out of the way, reaching for a band to tie it into a ponytail to give her more visibility to work on her masterpiece; The scene of two women gazing at each other from afar, each tied to her husband, is fitting and depressing like the rest of her artwork that is hung around the room leaving the back of her empty and two other spots to the right of her unoccupied. As she sighs and continues with her painting wondering when her father will return, the news of a mad titan who brought chaos into the world has made her uneasy even when the bombing hit, fear gripped her, knowing anyone could die at any moment, but deep down she felt humanity would triumph, could we survive this?. As Yuhara admired the canvas, she glanced in the mirror. Her pupilless lilac eyes scanned the body she had sculpted from all the training, she ran her hands over her abs as she wore her blue sports bra and sleeveless haori, but stopped when she heard a boy yelling at the gate of the compound, she opened her door and ran out to investigate. She saw a dark skin boy looking frantic, her byakugan active, her veins around her eyes bulging, and her pupils more distinct as she approached him "Hello there, who are you?" stopping only a few feet from him, ready to strike if he gets too close.
