The results of the 'body flicker' had not been quite what she hoped for but the roof had been reached if not in a somewhat clumsy way. Jumping from roof to roof, the demoness made her way to the walls where she had to deliver the first of her messages. Her target was supposed to be a special jounin walking along the walls somewhere. Specialised in sensory and thus a popular choice for the job. She'd land on the wall, channelling the chakra required to scale up the wall without problem and backflip onto the wall itself once she reached it. She had barely set her feet on the solid stones of the wall when a man flickered into existence before her, weapon drawn for a moment as he analysed her attire and looks. Noticing the Kumo-headband, he'd refrain from instantly striking her.
"Who are you?"
"Grimancer Akari, genin."
He was obviously not familiar with such a title but the looks of the yokai, the name and the headband was sufficient to make him lower his weapon. He wasn't quite sure what he had to think about the non-human entity before him.
"What do you want?"
"Bringing you a message from admin.", she'd say, taking out the scroll she had received and handing it over. The shinobi took it from her and opened it, eyes darting over its contents before he burned it to a crisp. Nodding she had fulfilled her task, he thanked her before flickering away again. Off to resume his duties. Left alone in the immediate vicinity, Akari took her time to enjoy the view of the mountains looming in the distance. Clear skies, looming horizons, endless possibilities. Sometimes she wondered if it hadn't been better not to accept the elder's offer back in the days.
Dropping the musing, she tried the body flicker again to disappear from view, finding herself mid-air before she landed on the roof below safely but hardly softly. Chakra flowing through her soils, her feet found balance despite the few shingles sliding off, and jumped over to the next building, and another, and another. Making her way to the second target. This shinobi was standing on the water reservoir, overlooking the district assigned to him and waved at her as he spotted her approach. Nearing his surroundings, she'd flash him the scroll which he received with a bright smile.
"I was expecting you. Man, so glad that answer finally arrived."
Eagerly rolling it open, the message didn't quite hold what he had expected, shoulders slumping after he had read the contents.
"Bummer... Oh well, thanks for delivering kid."
Akari would nod, continuing the road through Kumogakure to find the last man in need of a message. Jumping over roofs again, she'd eventually drop into the middle of the street and slip into a bar. Her demonic presence instantly triggered disgust and fear from the civilians, the mood dropping a tone as the general consensus disapproved of the presence of the yokai. Still, used to such reactions and quietly satisfied at their discomfort, Akari moved closer to the man in question and slipped the scroll toward the man. A glint of recognition would cross his face yet he'd wave his arms vividly to chase her away.
"Get lost, can't you see I'm eating here?"
She'd grin, take a step back and walked away as she defiantly opposed the remaining people with her attitude. Like a true demon confirming their reasons to be correct. Once outside, she'd flicker away again, this time properly succeeding to reach the roof above the restaurant before she went back to collect her pay.
