"Another disturbance detected, Sir"a came a voice from the other side of the door, Masaru would let out a sigh. They had been getting a lot of these lately, and considering the state of his forces right now himself and Chen had been the ones dealing with them the most. A lot had changed in the past three years both for Iwagakure and the world, Hirashi's attack on the shinobi around world left a scare that would not be healed over night. Most of his men were killed or injured in the war, with limited resources it had to fall upon the two strongest members of the village. The Tsuchikage and his Right hand man, "Where is Chen?" Masaru questioned hoping he could catch a break and the boy could be sent to deal with it. "Chen is on assignment, Sir. I do not possess the clearance as to why, but I was informed that he won't be back for some time." Masaru would let out a grown, he had forgotten about that. Chen's special assignment, damnit. That means he has to deal with it, "tell Hansuke to meet me at the gates."
At the gates, Hansuke would give Masaru the full report on the disturbance. "There are two signatures, travelling through the Chang Mountains. They are headed this way, but not directly. It will take them time to reach us in their current path, but if they pose a threat to the land..." Hansuke wouldn't finish his thought, Masaru however knew where he was going. If they were a threat then it is best to not leave them to their devices, interception and dealing with them was the only course of action. "Get the jinsoku-shi stationed on the wall, if I fall then defend this village to the last man." His words while unnecessary, held high meaning to the man. He would not accept defeat unless all were dead including himself, he knew Hansuke understood that and that his loyalty would see Masaru's wishes followed.
Masaru would depart the village gates heading in the direction of the source of the anomaly, what he saw was at the very least was surprising. A male looking to be in his late teens or early twenties riding on the back of a large salamander, while they did not look to be a threat, Masaru knew all too well that looks could be deceiving. The male would still be over 3km away from where the salamander and rider was, when he would split himself in two. Through the use of the Fission Technique he was able to do more than just a clone of himself this was a true living and breathing person, one half of a whole. One Masaru would form the tiger seal before disappearing from view using the hiding in Camouflage Technique, as the remaining Masaru would draw closer to the intruders. Once he was closer but still out of their view, Masaru would slam his palms to the ground activating the earth release: multiple earth style wall technique. Thirty walls made of earth would pop out of the earth, surrounding the two would be intruders from all sides.
Almost as quickly as the walls would appear, one of the Masaru's would appear standing on the top of the earth wall directly in front of Kureji. "You are trespassing on my Land. What is your Purpose Here?!" His voice would boom as if spoken through a megaphone thanks to the acoustics provided by the earth walls that surrounded the male and his Salamander, it carried a tone of Authority as well as respect. Sure he was demanding, but after the war it was hard to just believe someone was near the village and did not mean to cause it harm. The second Masaru while hidden from view both by the walls and the hiding in Camouflage Technique would begin to channel his chakra as he formed a string of handseals concentrating to form the earth to create a Golem from it. It would take time for the Golem to form, but would be helpful if these two were hostile and decided to attack. Which was why Masaru split himself, of course if they were not aggressive then this would but nothing more than a waste. Still it was better to be safe than sorry.
