A day had passed since their patrol through the wealthy neighborhood in the village and the rain had hardly stopped. So it was that they were once again handed a mission slip. Another C rank mission but this time it was to guard the gate. Of course Tadara suspected that this one was more of a work shift than anything. Checking paperwork and matching it up to cargo. Creating an alarm but not engaging if anything were to transpire. There of course would be a jounin nearby should anything go just awful but Tadara idly wondered if the two of them could escape if someone was strong enough a jounin was needed. Typically if one could flee from an opponent it meant one of two things. Option one was that they were simply strong enough to escape and therefore by that logic also strong enough to engage. However the second option was the one Tadara would almost always assume. The enemy was letting them escape. Having no need to worry about them because of the difference in their strength. In truth mere pawns on a board that the village was moving. Tadara couldn't say he disagreed. But that wouldn't be a permanent status for him.
Still he had the presence of mind the night before to dry his rain gear and clean it. So he at least looked the part of a professional and he wasn't having to put on wet rain gear. Defeating the purpose of putting it on in the first place. Still the streets were muddy and not many people were out in a downpour like this. Luckily the guard station was indoors just within the gate. Travelers would be expected to stop there and present their paper work. A large window slid open with an overhang outside to let them interact with those passing by. Tadara would slip inside after wiping his boots on the welcome mat and take over the shift. Katsumi would likely arrive soon after. The two of them being assigned together this often was likely to build up some repour. To get two individuals working together and comfortable with each other so when real missions... combat missions became something they were able to handle they would be already working in tandem. Able to have an idea what the other was thinking and work around it. A more fluid team. At least that was what Tadara assumed their theory was.
