    Appearance:

    A pair of heavy-duty black combat boots covered both feet made with exceptional craftsmanship and reinforced with steel toe caps and soles embedded in the leather. A set of heavy black pants were worn over her lower body. These were equipped with iron shin guards which were fashioned as bands going across her shins lined up next to each other leaving no gaps for weak points. The knees had hard plastic and cushioning backing it to allow ease of comfort when crawling through tight spaces. Hardened plastic was also sown into the upper legs and hips of the pants as well. Like all Shinobi she wore a utility belt to hold her pants against her body and carry her essential supplies. Hana carried Kurosawa, a double-edged katana sheathed in its scabbard on her left side attached to her tool belt.

    A single blue holster was on the right side of the belt and a hip pouch around her back side just above her rear. Both were filled to capacity with ninja tools. A short sleeved undershirt was worn as her first layer. This shirt was one fitted with riveted steel mail designed to be flexible and lightweight providing protection and encumbering her minimally. Her second layer was a long sleeve black shirt similar in craftsmanship of the leggings. It was a heavy and durable top with steel rings sewn at the elbows in a cuff providing maximum protection at the joints. Rings of steels were sewn in at the upper portion of the torso as well providing protection at her upper chest and back and around her shoulders. This top was secured with the final piece of body armor being the Kirigakure standard flak jackets, this one made especially for Hana being much more superior in craftsmanship compared to the regular stock option. Black leather gloves covered both hands being basic in design providing warmth and protection. These came with small steel plates on the backs to provide protection against blades.

    Like most Kaguya her skin was deathly pale. This was coupled with long white hair which was relatively thick compared to the long, silky strands a lot of the more feminine clan females had, which required day-to-day dedication to maintain. Hers was a bit untamed and high in both length and volume extending as far as her lower back. Her eyes were the only true difference in her appearance compared to the rest of her clan having an alluring golden hue to them.

    In a high rise skyscraper known as the Mizukage Complex Hana sat on the couch in what appeared to be a lounge for the city's higher ranking ninja, often those who worked in the administration. Nine ninja dressed in their uniform were waiting about with each performing a variety of tasks. Two were cooking in the kitchen while others read, wrote, socialized, or simply enjoyed the overview of the city. These men were apart of Hana's royal guard who hardly left her side when conduction her business was Mizukage. Hana sat on a comfy couch before a coffee table. Spread among the table were several popular fast food items picked up by one of her guardsmen from a popular bar in the downtown area. She had three different burgers: a double with chili and cheese, a double bacon deluxe, and a double southwestern. She knew damn well she wouldn't finish it all, but she liked the tenacity. With that she had a basket of fries, an order of poutine fries, battered onion rings, and a forty ounce Pepsi drink.

    Her sword, Hiramekarei, was propped up next to her against the couch within arm's reach in case she needed it. But that was highly unlikely. It was just an ordinary afternoon. Normally Hana ate at her desk but recently visitor in her office have been making remarks about it smelling too much like burgers which led to a bit of embarrassment on her end. Hana had the common courtesy to take her burger endeavors elsewhere saving the janitors unnecessary work.

    She ate in peace for the most part busying herself with her laptop between spurs of consumption. With not having received any feedback from the Kage in the invited to the Chuunin Exams she did not expect any of their arrival. She didn't even expect any participants until frigates started to dock in Ota full of Genin and Jounin ready to proctor. It was a surprise, but at least a pleasant one.

    Neko-Sama, the Ninja Hokage of Konoha walked into the Mizukage Complex, it was Neko-Sama's first time in Kiri, and with certain things that had come to light, it wasn't sure how the city would treat the part of its clowder that came over. But this was time to make introductions and oversee the exams. Just because Kiri had sided with the one's who'd stole Neko-Sama's human didn't mean Neko-Sama'd would act rashly. Not when there were so many of it's clowder present. Right now was time for logic and reason to have it's time in the limelight.

    Upon entering a lounge Neko-Sama saw a pale white ninja, eating a massive amount of burgers, soda, different styles of fries and onion rings. Husking to take in the scents, Neko-Sama was appalled that the ninja before it was eating substandard food. "With the amount of chefs near you, I'd expect them to at least serve you something palatable like a proper burger, and those fries are the saddest, most mediocre one's I've ever seen. They wouldn't be fit to serve in the back alley of my Resort.

    "Please I beg you, if you're going to eat in front of me, at least let me cook you something that isn't garbage."
    Neko-Sama pleaded.

    The Mizukage enjoyed her slop of "food" quite content with herself and her humble eating habits. It was not exactly healthy, but certainly nutrient dense foodstuff. It was during her feast that her attention was caught by another visitor. Some of the guards turned to the front door as well seeing a small cat, but went back to what they were doing. The only one who remained intrigued was Hana with her eyes fixed on the animal. Surely this wasn't real. To have a stray cat wander into the Mizukage Complex through the front doors was unusual to say the least. But this cat was different. It stared at her almost as if it was judging Hana. She'd keep her eyes locked on the cat for the brief moment it took for Neko-sama to crack. An adventurous cat was one thing, but a talking one? This immediately garnered a reaction from Hana as a few guards returned their attention to the front door of the lounge where the cat stood equally suspicious of their visitor.

    Hana immediately activated her sensory technique as she passively gathered the cat's signature. She certainly had quite a bit of reserves. More than an average human, or a cat even. Hana wondered if someone in her department was playing a prank on her, or a janitor finally had the gonads to confront her about the burgers. Hana remained enthralled by the lecturing cat as she grabbed an onion ring taking a bite from it crunching on the well-done tempura. But Hana's patience was worn thin towards the end. Hamburgers? Garbage? It was latin to her.

    The oxymoron spoken by the possessed cat caused her blood to boil and pupils to dilate with primitive rage burning inside of her. But Hana quickly blinked twice taking her mind off violent tendencies. Grabbing a handful of crushed white napkins she'd wipe the excess barbecue sauce, chili and cheese, and mustard from her grubby mitts before patting her mouth and tossing the now-used excess of napkins on the table. "So, a cat that owns a resort, is it? And an expert food critic at that. You know, I used to be a chef myself. I worked at Burger King during my teenage years for nine months. I think I know quality product when I see it. But more importantly, who are you exactly?" Obviously a cat, but she expected the joke to run dry by now and the prankster to reveal himself/herself.

    When the Ninja replied to Neko-Sama, it's gave went from appalled to horrified, "Burger King ... quality ... that is horrifying on a number of levels! Tomorrow, I'll cook for you. I won't take no for an answer, I'll show you what a real burger is supposed to be. It'll be so good you'll be sent to a state of orgasmic bliss!"

    Collecting itself, it puffed out it's black, kitty chest, and purred proudly, "Let me introduce myself, I am Neko-Sama, Yondaime Hokage, the interim Nidaime Tsuchikage, owner of Miryoku Resort in Konoha, a 5 star Chef, and a member of Yui Kotoshura's clowder.

    "Whom might you be? I'm sorry to say that with Kirigakure's rather chaotic politics it's hard to remember who is whom and what is exactly going on here at any given time, probably why you weren't told Konoha's kage was a talking, Ninja Cat."

    Hana was confused by the cat's standards. If Burger King was horrifying she couldn't imagine what could be any better. A burger was a sandwich, and there wasn't much more that could be done to improve it. Burgers were already the best of the best. To know any ways to improve them required the knowledge of a God. Having been an avid burger eater since the age of fifteen she wondered: was this the Burger-meister she finally got to meet? Had her years of loyalty finally paid off? Was she really about to taste the best burger known to man? Or was this still a sick prank? Hana didn't know who or what to trust. This was a decision she had to make on her own. "I...thank you." She said as ASMR ran through her spine.

    Given her massive stress burden with inheriting the Water Empire's trouble while organizing the Chuunin Exams changed her mood quite a bit. Being the Mizukage put her on a monument on importance. Her connections she had with her friends and ordinary people were reduced significantly given the required protection she needed and a slight bit of paranoia on her end. It had been ages since she was invited to anything that wasn't business related, and nonetheless it was a dinner prepared by the host. The kindness was nostalgic and well-received by the Mizukage giving her vibes of a much simpler time in her better days.

    The tension was relaxed as the kitten introduced itself. A greater surprise showered over her following the recent news. The cat was actually the Hokage. Its titles put Hana to shame, who had nothing going for her but "The Sacker of Iron." The worst part was that Hana didn't remember the last time she showered. But a few focused whiffed of her nose confirmed her suspicious. Four days...

    Clearing her throat Hana erected her spine upright, taking a quick dram from her large drink and swishing it around between her teeth before swallowing. "I'm the...." Focusing back she counted in her fingers going through her predecessors. "Seventh Mizukage?" She said, unsure if her quick mental math was even accurate. She was close, she knew that much. "Hana Kaguya is my name. And yeah, the previous Mizukage work in mysterious ways, to say the least. One day Kyoji just up and told me I was the next Mizukage and left out of the blue. Not a trace or reason why, aside from some form of retirement of his I guess." Hana blinked twice getting back on track. The Hokage's appearance was awfully strange, but to be honest, growing up in Kirigakure conditioned her to all odd manners of appearances. And Hana felt there was a reason for her presence. "So what brings you here? I wasn't expecting you to show up to Kirigakure at all."

    Upon being thanked, Neko-Sama let loose a pleased, rumbling purr, "You are very much welcome, tonight I'll prepare you a feast of the best burgers, and appropriate side dishes you'll ever have had the chance of tasting. Seven hours will be plenty of time to properly marinade the meat, let the made-from-scratch bun's bread rise, and prep the sides to my liking. Then we can have a pleasant conversation over good food."

    After hearing the current Mizukage's predicament Neko-Sama let loose a chattering meow that would sound suspiciously like a chuckle, "Well Ms. Kaguya, it seems both of our kage had the same idea. I'll have to tell you the story of how a cat finding it's human a land away, ended up becoming the Kage out of the blue one day. I'm sure you have a likewise entertaining or memorable story.

    "But the outcome is the same, given no heads up, not told of what our predecessors did, and needing to learn what little we can as we come across it, and let me tell you the Rokudaime Mizukage has left you with a lot of problems from their predecessors. If I didn't know any better, I'd say the previous Mizukage didn't want to deal with things he and his predecessors had done and decided it would be best to dump it on some innocent shinobi's shoulders."


    Hopping up on the table, Neko-Sama would purr and attempt to bunt the Mizukage, before rubbing it's head on her hand. "As for why I'm here, well it's not like me to miss the chance of seeing my ninja grow, and if I'm very lucky might even learn some leads onto my human's kidnappers. There last known location was in the Land of Water. I guess you can say that I'm very eager to hunt those who'd taken a member of my clowder. Who knows, us two Kage dumped with the burden of responsibility, might very well be able to help another. You are an interesting looking human, it would behoove me to learn more about my neighbor."

    Just hearing the preview of the culinary expertise the Hokage had to offer really did make Hana feel guilty about her lunch choice. It was one of those things were a spur craving of fast food sounds good at the moment, but when compared to the real stuff it made the junk food not taste as good. She found some comfort in knowing that her situation was not exactly uncommon, as scary as that sounds. "So I'm not alone in regarding the responsibility dump. That's a bit assuring at least. Here I was thinking it was personal." But their similarities ended there as the Hokage spoke of what needed to be addressed. She mentioned kidnappers which reminded her of the whole incident at the Eastern Gate a week ago. She stared blankly at the food on the table trying her best to recall her memories. The Hokage was undoubtedly a cat in nature given her affection she expressed. Either that or a remarkable shapeshifter by being able to mimic an animal's behavior down.

    All things considered, though, Hana was not a huge fan of animals. She appreciated them and did find them cute, but as a caretaker she was horrible. Hana could hardly take care of herself by most people's standards. To say the least, routine was not her strong suit. Hana had a slight urge to at least pet the cat, but knowing it could talk made it almost seem inappropriate. And that it was a Kage at that, military commanders of the great nations, made a pet almost seem demeaning. Reaching for her drink she'd take a steady dram allowing the sugar to give her a temporary energy boost. She had a lot to say after jogging her memory.

    "I wish I had more information about the setting, but the guards on duty who witnessed the entire confrontation perished in combat. So you will have to hear my story, which may be lacking some important plot points. But here it goes: about a month ago two of Konoha's Jounin arrived to Kirigakure's Eastern Gate, along with Nozomi Himitsu. I'm unsure what business your Jounin had with Kirigakure to this day. Konoha visitors are always welcomed, but two Jounin sounded like something official. Nevertheless I was just a Jounin myself at the time so I had no information regarding that." Hana stared at her cup trying to jog her foggy memory on the incident the best she could. This required more sugar as she treated herself to another big gulp.

    She'd sigh, setting the cup back on the table for good. Leaning back onto the couch she got comfortable resting her hand on the pommel of Hiramekarei. "As you may know, Nozomi Himitsu is apart of the Society. I guess Akihiro was agitated by her presence and some political argument broke out before I arrived. The last bit of information I heard from Nozomi was something about liberating a girl and her not giving up a belt which Akihiro was interested in. Then that's when the fighting started. Akihiro set Nozomi ablaze with some black fire which she miraculously survived. Kirigakure, Rin, and Akihiro all tried to subdue Nozomi but failed in doing so. She managed to escape after dropping tidal waves over the area. I made a break for some shelter within the wall and survived, though six of our Jounin didn't. When the water drained shortly after I left the wall's interior to find the black fire had spread following Nozomi's technique. Kirigakure would have suffered greatly if Kyoji hadn't shown up and put out the fire himself. Nozomi fled in the chaos and Akihiro was nowhere to be found. Rin still remained, but was targeted shortly after by a mysterious man. He was abnormally pale. Whiter than me. He had long, straight black hair and seemed fairly lean. He just appeared out of nowhere, like teleported. I left the fight to Kyoji and Rin. But unfortunately Rin or Kyoji's status is unknown. Akihiro was later found in the aftermath, unconscious and nearly suffocated underground. I believe he took shelter from Nozomi's water technique, but the shellshock done him in. He's alive and stable, currently in our hospital. I'm sure once he recovers we can get a better story. But for now that is all I have to say regarding your ninja."

    As Hana told Neko-Sama of the events of the Society, Neko-Sama's pupils narrowed and fur started to slowly rise. As she got to the part of the fight, Neko-Sama's body showed signs of it's anger boiling to the surface as a tiny growl escaped it's throat. As Hana finished her report, Neko-Sama took several moments to calm itself from waves of feline rage building within. "Thank you Rokudaime, although this does seem to make matters even more worrying. This exam, and the moment afterwards as everyone leaves, would be the perfect time for a terrorist attack on their side. Right now, with so many ninja from Kumo and Konoha here leaving our places unguarded, you filled with a large influx of Shinobi. Many of whom may not be who they say they are. Then afterwards as we are still far from our nations and Kiri is dealing with the cleanup of the Exams.

    "It would be a perfect time for an attack. The Society has clearly marked Kiri as a target, and as of now has brought harm to my clowder on multiple occasions. Sadly, they act with anonymity, and no nation outside my own, to my knowledge, has put in operatives to try and bleed them dry. The teleporter would explain how Yui was kidnapped, then a mysterious theft within our nation.

    "It could be that the Society has additional plans for Kiri as well. One can make tidal waves that can wreck havok on a nation, one can teleport to any location with impunity, and who knows what their other members have going for them. I would suggest doubling your guard during the exams, and after making yourself hidden while keeping your eyes open. I'll even do you the favor of staying behind with a few Konoha ninja of your choosing to patrol the outskirts of your village and be prepared to step in if you need assistance for at least a week after the Exams. That is, if you approve of our assistance."


    Neko-Sama's posture for anyone with an eye on body language would see the anger, worry, and concern oozing off of it's small body as everything started to come into place. "The world is under threat from an evil that has been allowed to grow for way to long, it's about time the world joins forces against them to wipe them out from the face of the earth."

    Hana listened to Neko's input on the situation. She spoke of predicted terror attacks from the Society in the future, likely during the exams and or immediately after. Hana was worried about that and took additional security measures to try and prevent any nefarious plans from befalling on Kirigakure. But hindsight was only twenty-twenty and the security measures were not flawless. She feared there were some gaps in her defense and if the Society could exploit them. But part of her was unsure if the Society meant to target Kirigakure. The presence of Nozomi confused her the day of the Eastern Gate skirmish. Not only was she apart of the Society, but a rogue ninja from Kirigakure. Hana didn't quite know her relationship with Kirigakure. Did she hold malice towards her former home? There were a lot of questions unanswered. Those who had what she sought were either dead, incapacitated, or missing. Such a convenient turn of events for the Society. But currently she felt it was best to remain skeptical and question everything.

    "I have been taking every measure to ensure the Land of Water is the safest place to be during the Chuunin Exams. But I cannot guarantee my defenses are flawless. The White Man who assaulted Rin could teleport almost anywhere it seems, like you said. But that is what confuses me. If the Society truly desired to sabotage Kirigakure they have every means of doing so. Between their abilities that have been seen thus far it would seem they are very capable of stealth, or outright causing massive. Nozomi during the fight at the Eastern Gate seemed to be in a very defensive position only causing mass casualties when cornered.

    Hana would dwell in her thoughts momentarily. "But I digress. I appreciate your offer to have Konoha's military stationed in the Land of Water, but I will have to decline. Our military is more than adequate and I don't intend to leave it anytime soon, unlike my predecessors. If the Society does plan to target any of the great nations it would be best to have Konoha at its full military strength as well." Another guard entered the room, his pace suggesting something of urgency. Immediately he shut the door behind him and locked it before flipping a switch causing the blinds in all of the room to shut. "Lady Mizukage, I have urgent and highly classified news to report. Everything you need to know is in this video tape." Hana was immediately intrigued as well as her guard unit. "The Hokage is present. It's this cat. Is it safe to show me now?" The messenger guard nodded. "That's perfect. Because this involves her own ninja. Here, let me show you." Inserting the video tape into a suspended TV and VHS player the tape would play showing all the known details here.

    ...

    Hana was enthralled by the video sent to them. She watched it once before requesting it to be replayed again. "That's him! Menza Sukiyama! He was the white guy I saw when Rin was confronted. And that's Rin!" Hana's heart was racing and a loss of her appetite followed. "It looks like Yui is safe, but Menza is demanding her and an Otsutsuki in exchange for Rin's freedom..." Otsutsuki. What's so important about them? Hana recalled that surname from her cousin, Arisu, and her mysterious doujutsu. Was her ability tied to this surname? It would explain why Menza sought one for his own. "We need to do something. Frankly, the only option I see is to rescue Rin and kill Menza."

    There was a natural innocence to Hanna that put Neko-Sama at ease. A sort of genuineness that came from the thankfully less intelligent and more sincere humans. As she finished stating that Konoha should be at full military power Neko-Sama was going to speak up when someone entered the room to deliver a message. A message that had filled Tatsu with a slowly growing rage.

    As it finished Neko-Sama's fur stood on end and a cackling growl issued from his throat. Looking at Hanna, he replied, "I'm about to share with you sensitive information, information that I don't think you want others to hear, and secrets that I wish to keep between just us."

    He'd wait to see what Hanna would do, with his cat-eyes and his posture he'd try to convey that this was serious and that he wasn't going to try to bring harm upon her, but he knew that Hanna could possibly want backup just in case, so he'd add on the addendum, "If you'd like a guard in here, make sure, on the lives of my Clowder, and on your very soul, that they can be trusted without a shadow of a doubt. As well as that they're loyalty is purely to you and none other."

    With that Neko-Sama would wait. The information that was going to be shared, if it ever got to the wrong people, which there were plenty, could spell doom. Worse if any loyal to the previous kages were in the room and wished to keep certain secrets from being know.

    It was also a test for Neko-Sama, to see if he was right in this human, or if his fears were right all along.

    The bomb of information she received from the video was enough to turn her appetite. Even though it was just a film she felt as if she was in combat and a lot of people depended on her for their survival. A threat weighed a lot more on the leader's shoulders than the footsoldier. Hana was used to taking orders and executing them with little second thought. But now she was left with a heavy decision. One that would have her name branded on it for history. Hana's grip was tense on Hiramekarei. She wanted to spring into action, but that primitive rage inside of her wouldn't be helpful in this situation. As she settled down she realized it wasn't a problem that could be solved with brute force. This was a hostage situation. It required detailed planning to rescue the person in question. Unfortunately for Hana she drew blank when trying to come up with any sort of effective plan.

    The emotions were running high in the room, the Royal Guard even responding with mutters of spite. It appeared the people in the room shared the same earnest thoughts and sense of justice. The Hokage responded by a desire to share a secret with her, asking for the room to be cleared. "Take the video. Put it back in my office. Everyone else step outside into the lobby." Hana believed the best secrets are those known by as little people as possible. She trusted all of her Royal Guard personnel, but she couldn't confidently keep them all safe. And she didn't know how they thought. If you want something done right, you do it yourself. If she wanted to keep this secret confidential she had to make sure she was the last person it reached. The video take was removed from the VHS player and left with the same guard who retrieved it in the first place. The others stepped outside and took guard at the door of the lobby. The window blinds were all still closed giving the two complete privacy.

    Hana activated her Sensory technique for good measure. Tensions were high and she had to admit she was a bit suspicious that the Hokage asked her guard to leave the room. She had complete surveillance of the people in a two-hundred and fifty meter radius around her. She kept her senses open ready to hear what the Hokage had to say. "I trust my guards, but I don't want them to bare the burden of what you're about to tell me. The door is closed and the windows are secure. This room is one among hundreds and we have the privacy you seek. What do you have to tell me?"

    Neko-Sama gave a grateful nod before holding it's paws in the form of the clone seal. Slowly it's body would ripple and pulse as it started changing in slow motion from that of a Tomcat to that of a well endowed human woman, with spikey blonde hair with red tips, Her Kage uniform open as a red seran wrap top held her chest, and crimson wide leg pants. The Saddle back that Neko-Sama wore  now resting on her left shoulder.

    Her left hand mouth would move next to her ear as she stepped a respectable distance back, keeping her body language and posture as non-threatening as possible, in the mouths tongue would be a letter, "A few Iwa people know me as Tatsu Kotoshura, The Shifter, and it's the identity Yui knows me as. I'm going to prove that this letter isn't a trap, then you need to read it. As you can see the paper is resting against my head, I'm a good distance from you and any one else."

    She'd Give the Seal of Determination and say "Katsu", and nothing happened. Since the paper wasn't charged with anything, it was simply held in the only safe place she could think of. Something she had read over and over again since she had gotten it shortly before leaving for Kiri, and the source of her worry for her genin.

    Handing the letter over to Hanna, she'd see it was marked for Neko-Sama's eyes only.

    letter:

    Dear Neko-Sama,
    I'd like to remove your stress: Yui has been found, safely. She mentioned you may be her cousin, Tattsu, which I'm hoping you are. She brought me some sensitive and grave information. Firstly, you need to get your cousin Taichi to safety, as well as make sure that Rin Uchiha is safe. She was being held by a man named Menza, who works for the Society. He's incredibly dangerous, according to Yui, a member of the Nature Clan like Raijin, and with a teleportation jutsu. You can understand the danger of that combination, but even further, there's more concern.

    Secondly, the information she gives me is that Kirigakure is actively working with Menza. They provided him forces to take civilians from several nations, and he provided them with a Bijuu in return. If that doesn't concern you, then it should. The Society has Bijuu to give away like that. And for some troops to help take a few people? I'm concerned with the nature of this alliance they have. It seems to me that there may be more at play than just a simple Bijuu trade and deal. Yui's also informed me that a former Mizukage, Nikuyo, is also a member of the Society. This raises my former suspicions on Kirigakure immensely.

    Third, I understand you have an alliance with Kirigakure, but they didn't honor your alliance. Yui was brought to the Mizukage, and he didn't help her at all. In fact, he refused to take her in, leaving her in Menza's care, and she was pawned off to the Pits with the former Mizukage, to fight for sport. I bring this up for a simple reason: Your alliance means nothing to Kirigakure. It does mean something to Kumogakure however, and I could use an alliance with your nation myself.

    I don't suggest war just yet. However, I think we need to make some sort of plans, and soon. Kirigakure is pushing boundaries everywhere. With the way they handled the Land of Demons thing, to working with the Society, to going back on your alliance, I'm very concerned. Perhaps we should have a meet up for further discussion? Yui can attend as well, so you can verify that she is in fact alive and well, and reverify the truth of this situation.

    -The Third Raikage,
    Nariko Mizushima


    "I wish she hadn't given my favorite human disguise's name. I spent many, many years building it on and off within the Kotoshura Clan, my previous humans before they sent me to look after their Clan Head, Yui. But what is done is done, I'll simply have to build a new identity.

    "But I can shapeshift into anything, and as you saw. It isn't the lame technique human use, I can turn into anything on a genetic, chakral, and all other levels. I become them, as long as I can analyze DNA to use either as is or a template. But with our deadline, I need to act.

    "You are like me. Given no knowledge of the previous Kage, no knowledge of it's secret dealings, just suddenly thrust into a position you never asked for. But do it for the good of those under you. That's why I let you see the secrets of Kirigakure. That the previous Kage's actively work with the Society.  

    "After this video, I have no choice but to go to Kumo, I will take Yui's place. I will save my Human and her Mate, but please. If the worst comes to worst, make sure my genin return home safely, just in case we can't come up with a better plan. If we need forces, if we need help waging war against not just Menza, but the Society as a whole, for their corruption, of their tainting the honor of your land. I will contact you first, and will let you spill our enemies blood. I'll let you be the first at a chance to reclaim the honor of your nation.  I will hear all of the truth from Yui's mouth, or I will lay waste to those who used her name in vain if she isn't alive."


    Neko-Sama's eyes were full of determination.

    The clock was ticking, and sadly when that clock struck 0. Neko-Sama's beloved Human's life would end. Even if Neko-Sama had to be Tatsu, or Yui, and let it's body take the form of the creepiest of species. It'd do so.

    Hana was naturally suspicious of the whole encounter, but was reassured of the Hokage's actions to ensure the safety of the message. Through her sensory technique she could tell the scroll was harmless. There was nothing suggesting anything chakra-based from what she could tell. When the scroll was handed over to Hana she opened it carefully on full alert, still a bit shifty. What was so important that the Hokage wanted to share? Upon revealing the text of the scroll her eyes started from the top and read the entire message through.

    There was several emotions that surged through the Mizukage after carefully examining the note. Astonishment, anger, understanding, insecurity, spite, and finally...wrath. She was hearing the Hokage passively in the background, but only certain parts were actually listened to. Hana stared at the note and reread certain parts. She was in such disbelief of what was happening beneath her nose. As a Jounin she had access to very little information regarding politics in the nation. Until now she was just another pawn in the military. But what was really happening behind the scenes?

    Hana's efforts to try and reunite the major nations were met with deceit. She tried to understand Kumogakure's motive and be rational. She knew enough about Kirigakure's past to know they weren't exactly clean. Kyoji broadcasting their raid on Iron possibly made matters worse. But Kumogakure's blatant attempt to poach Konoha from Kirigakure caused her blood to boil to no end. It was a dirty, underhanded attempt to get Konoha to betray Kirigakure, and for Kumogakure to close in on the Water Empire. At this point Hana knew Kumogakure wore two faces. The Cloud village showing up to Kirigakure to participate in the exams was supposed to be a sign of trust. But that was no longer the case. Kumogakure accepting Kirigakure's invitation was a sign of deception.

    The Mizukage closed the scroll and stashed it in her hip pouch. "Outstanding." Hana rose from her seat on the couch and slung Hiramekarei on her back letting it clip onto her baldric. "Seek out Kumogakure, then. I will ensure Konoha's Genin make it home safe. But for now, I have a lot to think about." Hana didn't have much to say after that. She'd head for the lounge door and open as she headed towards the elevators. "Let's go." She commanded of her guard unit as they all started to follow her.

    Shifting back into Neko-Sama form, Tatsu would give one last message, "For what it's worth, I'm glad that my deepest fears were unfounded, your are a Kage that I can respect, and I see a lot of me in you ... and a lot of what I wish I could be, when this is all over, and if I'm not killed soon. Let us share a bottle of sake together, and foster a fresh start between my Empire and your nation.  

    "But remember what I mentioned, keep an eye out for danger as the Exams draw near, and if you ever need aide, or a helping paw. I'll be more than happy to help you. My mind, and my power is always available for a friend. I'll seek out Kumo and keep watch for you."


    With a nod he'd step out for his aide to run up to them, a Mizuki, a non-descript woman of average height, build, with dark hair and black eyes, yelling "Kage-Sama! Kage-Sama! I have the books for this month's income, and Konoha was robbed!"

    Neko-Sama looked at her frazzled state and gave a growl part in annoyance, part in anger, "I find it convenient that Akihiro set this in motion, but didn't give a warning, I couldn't find him here, and suddenly we're robbed. I have things set in motion so we don't loose everything, but I'll fix this. Don't worry."

    Looking at Hanna, Neko-Sama gave a curt nod, "As I thought might happen. I have measures, the loss isn't as bad as it could have been, but I'm going to have to set things in motion. It seems as if I need to finally be proactive. Until we next meet. I'll need to send some Messenger birds to let my ninja know."

    And with that the Cat-Kage of the Fire Nation was off.
