"Head west," she ordered before doing the same. She turned off the road to the west, heading into the forest. She kept her speed down so that Makoto could keep up with her, leading him further and further into the forest. After three hundred meters or so of trudging through the undergrowth of the forest, Tsuyo would break through the treeline into a small and semi-clear area. Four trees were inside the otherwise clear twentyish meters in diameter clearing. Two to the north separated by a couple meters near the edge, one off-center by a couple meters to the east, and the fourth to the southeast six meters from the edge of clearing.
Tsuyo walked to the center before turning on a dime to do a one-eighty and face Makoto. Her arms came up and folded underneath the slight bulge showing through the shirt and flak jacket where her breasts were. She looked down at him, curiosity written on her face.
It was possible she wouldn't be able to look out for him in the worst case scenario, so he had to either know how to fight or know how to hide. He probably couldn't out run them unless he was a particularly gifted genin. And she was hoping he was particularly gifted, if not in speed then in awareness. Both could be instilled the old fashioned way if necessary.
"So, Makoto. We haven't exactly had any time to get to know each other or even do an introductory training lesson. It's unfortunate timing, but you're going to get a crash course on surviving. You'd be surprised how often things don't go your way and that's all you can do, so I'd rather you be good at it earlier rather than later." She paused to let it sink in for a moment, continuing after taking a small breath. "First though, I want you to tell me a bit about yourself. I'd like to know what you think you're good at as well as what techniques you know how to perform." Tsuyo needed to have a basic grasp of what he could already do in order to decide what he was capable of learning somewhat before the mission. She awaited his response with a somewhat passive expression, though the focus of her eyes on Makoto still gave away her curiosity.
