The smirk on Ken Tanahashi’s face was probably something that people would stare at as he made his way down his slum and towards the village gates. He was wearing his undyed Linen robes, which were generally used for assignments or tasks where stealth may be important, and it sounded like today he was going to actually go on a good job. The letter he had received had informed him that he would be working with a high ranking member of the village, and his task was considered extremely important. Apparently some rich business owner had hired a fancy architect he had to make his way to the Land of Rivers. Given his experience guarding the caravans in the past, his particular skills were considered an assert to this mission, but as it was extremely important and potentially very dangerous they were going to let him go alone...that was fine by him.
He wrapped the chain of his Kusurigama around his shoulder and chest, putting the quiver of arrows at his hip and shouldering his bow as well as he made his preparations, also filling his water skin and taking his tin of hand rolled cigarettes. He planned on being to his assignment early, nothing like a chance to impress someone higher up so that hopefully he would be able to get more assignments like this going forward. It was still cool as the sun hadn’t risen yet, and the village was a completely different place at this time of day. It was really a place that impressed the Samurai, somewhere that had once been his home back when it was just a hamlet, then was destroyed under the thumb of “Sunagakure”, but had turned itself around in that time. This place had been his hell for the past year, but right now it seemed quite beautiful.
As he finally reached the gates he looked around for his charge, finding the architect with his cart and nodding to him as he pulled a cigarette from the tin and lit it, drawing the smoke deep into his lungs as he did. He smiled once again, feeling the smoke cloud his mind as he looked up at the star filled sky. It was beautiful here...and today was the start of the rest of his life. The smoke passed through his nose and dissipated into the air around him as he continued to scan for threats, and for his partner on this task. He knew nothing about this person, except that they were a jounin of the village, and would be considered a Ninja. He hadn’t had the...pleasure? Of working with any of the ninja yet, and generally Samurai and Ninja were natural enemies, but it seemed he would have to put those differences behind him for the sake of the cause.
