Yamamoto leapt through the air, her white outfit and grey hair billowing in the breeze. She grabbed a tree branch, swinging forth on it before releasing. Her legs bent as she landed upon a lower branch, yellow gaze locked on the figure of an orange beast with black stripes fleeing away from her, heading into the undergrowth that made up training ground one. Yamamoto launched forth, leaping down to ground level before breaking out into a full sprint.
She had chased this overgrown tiger all throughout the lowest level of the village and so far it had not injured anyone, which was a relief and a half that’s for sure, but Yamamoto had still been hired to recapture it. Sadly, she had so far been unable to actually capture it. Understandably, the tiger known as Kokoro had simply run away from this unknown stranger and their strange scent. It was an understandable response but it did still make things difficult.
Yamamoto stopped suddenly, watching the tiger flee as a realisation set in: simply chasing the animal would not be sufficient in capturing it. She paused, thinking to herself on what would be the best way to reign this tiger in. Ideally, she would like to simply convince Kokoro to return of their own volition but that...hm. Yamamoto’s thoughts stopped suddenly, her face remaining its expression of passive indifference to the world around it. That was exactly it wasn’t it? Why did she need to rely upon capturing this tiger?
With an idea spawning in her head Yamamoto simply turned on her heel and walked back to the village, smiling at the guards who had been positioned around the entrance to the training grounds. It was strange to see her enter and then leave so quickly, especially given the tiger that had charged in moments before, but a disarming smile and confidence inviting nod was enough to convince them that she had everything in hand. Plus, it was her mission so best to leave it to her.
