Mistu was an interesting sort of person, never one for grumbling or sincere complaining which is why this particular morning her behaviour was quite concerning. While she normally rose with the sun and practiced her yoga and her dance with a cheerful smile on her face, as the sun crested the horizon she merely pulled the covers back over her head. Mitsu wasn’t known for sleeping in and her mother tried her best to coax the girl out from beneath her nest of fabric but to no avail. Mitsu was determined to sleep as long as possible having woke up on the ‘wrong side of the bed’. It was probably a result of her staying up far too late, training her combat and techniques so as to keep up with the other shinobi of the village. She knew she was lagging behind, being more interested in the unique patterns she could draw in the sand as she danced rather than any practical application in her skill.
After a couple of hours of letting her daughter sleep her mother finally decided to be more forceful with her tactics. With the kind of swiftness only a mother could harness she would yank the covers off of her lazy daughter and demand she get up in a sing-songy voice. “Mitsu darling, the sun has been awake far longer than you! Time to get up, the desert won’t dig itself up!” Mitsu would laugh and jump up, she’d forgotten about the mission she was supposed to go on today. Her tiredness was instantly put out of her mind and she rushed to get ready. “You know mom, you should have started with that, I would have got up right away.” The women would continue in their cheery manner as Mitsu got dressed, putting on a soft white colored dress; short and flowing, barely covering enough to make the outfit decent. Not that Mitsu was particularly concerned with the man-made construct of ‘decency’ - she’d been taught to be proud of her body and didn’t consider not covering pieces of it as some sort of crime against humanity.
Once dressed she would grab her kunai, placing it in the leather strap on her right thigh next to her row of four senbon and two shuriken. She had already acquired the shovel and bag from the merchant, he had been in such a state about the whole affair. She wasn’t sure exactly how valuable the things he had lost were, but she assumed they must be incredibly valuable based on his near panic when explaining things to her. She wasn’t sure if anyone else would be joining her on this mission, she didn’t need the help though, digging things up in the desert was kind of her forte. Her supplies in hand and a smile on her face, Mitsu would head out towards the spot she thought the man had described.
