- Mission Name: Litter Pickup
Mission Type: Chore
Mission Rank: D
Mission Goal: Picking up the litter.
Description: A few of the merchants around the Marketplace in Kumogakure have noted that there seems to be a lot of litter throughout any given day. Litter makes the area look bad, and loses business for them. Pick up the litter around a merchant’s store or booth for a few hours, and keep it clean from new litter.
With a new city comes lots of new trash. The recent transformation of Kumogakure into a full blow city had generated more businesses, more merchants, and predictable more refuse that needed to be cleaned up. It was the lowest of the low as far as shinobi tasks when but it was something she was expected to do. Shimiko felt her skills as a shinobi growing every day but she was still a genin. This meant that she was on garbage duty even when she didn't particularly feel like it. She was wearing a plain T-shirt and shorts with shinobi scandals. Her pigtails bounced as she stooped down to stab trash and place it in the container strapped to her back. She didn't like to think she was better than anyone per se but she felt as if her newly acquired talents were being wasted. How was she supposed to rack up a prodigious kill count if she was spending time cleaning up the city streets? Shimiko sighed and continued to work. She had arrived early so that she could finish early. Kasuo would probably be arriving shortly. The boy had looked tired and worse for wear during their last mission together but he sort of perked up at the talk of riddles. It was amusing and it kept Shimiko from thinking about how gross the work was and how overqualified she was do be doing it.
