    Turning a desert into a paradise Empty Turning a desert into a paradise

    Post by Okane Sat Jan 30, 2021 1:25 pm

    Okane had returned home and saw that not a lot had changed in the time he was gone. People still wandered aimlessly from place to place with barely any hope in their eyes. Hungry and thirsty as they seemed to fight over the water and food he had already provided. It was a pity but the truth was he just hadn't made enough for the population already there. He had sought to reduce conflict and had only established territories ruled by the unfortunately greedy. He was not a fan of this but he had a solution all the same. If supply did not meet demand he simply needed to make more. So he had ordered his ten crafters to prepare for a large scale project. Construction crews set to building trenches in five streets crisscrossing each other to make a large scale fresh water system with five green houses built in the center of it. Finding construction volunteers was no issue but he would need a security officer too. Just someone to make sure the unfortunates didn't try and steal supplies or sabotage the project or workers. This was a new hope for the people of his homeland. He wouldn't allow it to fail.

    So first as he was hiring the construction crews and showing his crafters the blueprints he would send out a notice for a simple guard job of supplies and workers. It was low pay but important to the village all the same. Any individual applying would of course have to meet with him at the construction site. For now after the notice was posted he would set about ordering supplies. First was a 1000 feet of aluminum piping. Costing 33,333 ryo. Handling the fresh water portion of the supplies. Next up was another 450 feet of piping for another 15,000. 450 feet of copper wiring for another 15,000, 10,000 ryo for one units of glass and finally 25,000 ryo for 5 batteries. Everything needed to build the greenhouses. 98,333 in total for cost. But for Okane it was hardly a hard number. For cost of paying the construction he would consider it an even 100,000 for paying the workers too. However that meant there was roughly one hundred thousand ryo worth of supplies all in one spot needing guarding. It was a valuable project and he couldn't allow it to fail.

    Okane stood just outside of the construction. Men were either digging trenches or setting the foundation for the greenhouses. All wearing hard hats and gloves with masks over their face and safety glasses for the dust. Water was being carried to the workers and no one was pushing themselves too hard. Unlike them Okane was sitting at a simple white table with a huge umbrella over it. Black slacks and polished black dress boots adorned his lower half while he was wearing an open halfway down the chest silver velvet button up shirt. Three necklaces with varying degrees of gold and silver with jewels adorned his neck while there was a golden ring on his right pinky finger with the stag symbol. His long black hair left loose about his head like a glistening lions mane. The only odd part about him was his eyes. Jade in color and seeming to glow despite the desert sun. If anyone were to ask who was in charge of this project they would be directed to Okane. Who at the moment was sipping on iced sweet tea and pushing a pair of oval purple sunglasses with gold frames up his nose. Those green eyes glowing through despite the tinted lenses.

    D rank jobs just weren’t making enough money, for Asuka. He could feed himself, but didn’t come even close to affording actual housing. Not Eve the shittiest apartment in the worst part of town was something he could afford. That was fine, though. He was a shinobi, he was made stronger than the average citizen for a reason. Unfortunately, without a squad, he was stuck mainly doing the D ranks that were mostly physical labor and didn’t pay very well. At least, until he’d caught wind of a job guarding some construction supplies. It still wasn’t a high paying job, but it was different enough from what he’d been doing to catch his attention.

    The village was in a state of disarray, and this project was sorely needed to bring relief to the villagers. That much he could tell. However, people were desperate. They’d steal to survive. They’d fight, cause trouble. This kind of guard job wasn’t made for a civilian, when it came down to it. Some of the people Asuka had seen wouldn’t hesitate to hurt or kill to survive. And hence, he’d decided to take this job himself, if he were chosen. It would be a good supplement to his income. He’d spare civilians the trouble that would come of guarding these supplies, and hopefully help this project to completion. He wasn’t aware of the exact details of what was going on, but he had hope, that it would make Sunagakure better than before.

    He’d made up his mind, and as he was directed to that simple table with the umbrella over it, the young shinobi prepared himself to speak. He may not the strongest or most physical fighter, but he was smart. He knew he could do this. Sighing, the young man with the silvery white hair and the unusual paleness for Sunagakure stepped up to the table. A long black cloak his his face from the sun, and as he spoke it was clear he wasn’t here for leisure. “Are you the one in charge of this project?”

    Okane would smile as he looked over his purple sunglasses at the unique figure approaching him. Clearly a step away from the average individual in Suna. Not many kept such a pale complexion with snow white hair in a place like this. The sun bearing down constantly left most of the people tanned or even sunburnt if they weren't careful. However this one seemed to stand out as if they denied the desert heat. He could appreciate that in an individual. Anything that set them apart was something Okane valued. Those who stood apart were meant for great things. In a world at war he had made his fortune and placed himself apart as a legend. Perhaps this person could be capable of something similar. He would pick up his tall glass as the ice clinked and he sipped from his straw. Perhaps coming across as a little spoiled sitting under an umbrella while others worked but he had earned his luxury. Still when they spoke Okane would nod slowly. When he spoke in return there was something mesmerizing about his voice. Soft on the ears like silk and smooth as a lullaby. One might even wonder if there was a comforting genjutsu at work.

    "Indeed I am. I am the Iron Prince Okane at your service. Now if I had to make an assumption I would say you aren't here to join the construction team. You hold yourself differently than the average citizen after all. Please take a seat and we will see if I can help make some dreams come true with you."

    Okane would reach out with his right hand and touch the table. From his finger tips glowing green chakra ink would flow out and from it a pitcher of the tea he was drinking with ice in it and another tall glass would emerge. The chakra ink would flow to the ground and a seat would emerge as well. It seemed for Okane this was effortless without any need for hand signs. Still he would lift his hand and the seals would fade but the items would remain. He would indicate the seat with his hand before leaning back and crossing his right leg over his left knee and setting his free hand on top of his right knee while holding his own glass in his left. Every move he made was filled with a strange grace as if he were nothing less than beauty walking. He took great care with his voice and movements to give off this illusion. Still he would speak once more. Glowing green eyes matching his smile.

    "Perhaps we can start with a name my dear?"

    This whole experience was very strange for Asuka, to say the least. From the words the other man spoke to the sheer luxury he could afford, it was clear he was no average man. Asuka couldn’t help but listen, sitting in the second chair that had been produced with the air of someone who was carefully neutral. He couldn’t afford to be rude, but he wasn’t sure how to feel about Okane yet. With similarly graceful movements to his host, the genin would pull his hood down now that he was out of the sun, revealing the full length of those silver strands of hair, and the equally silver eyes that had been hidden by the hood.

    “My name is Asuka Shimizu, and I am a shinobi.” He began, eyes focused on Okane all the while. “You will not know who I am, since I am not exactly famous, or extremely powerful. That is because at heart, I am a medic. I do not work on the front lines, not usually.” He continued, not taking the second glass just yet. Right now, he was far more interested in what the man had to say than any tea that was placed in front of him. While the method was interesting, it didn’t hold a candle to his focus on his actual goal. He could sate his curiousity another time, when there was less serious business to discuss.

    In the meantime, there was a job he was very interested in, and on that all of his focus would be placed. Anything that could help him afford a better lifestyle so he could better help others was something that he was very interested in, though he preferred more moral work. Hopefully, this wouldn’t entail anything extremely violent or immoral.

    Okane would listen with a smile. Watching the young man sit and remove his hood to reveal silver eyes and hair. Yes that would do the trick. Especially in a place like Suna where such features meant he was unique. People often feared what they did not understand and while he preferred it wasn't necessary to spread fear, only those he was attempting to deter would truly be effected. Thieves or terrorists of lower standing would be his target audience there. The trade off was that his work force would find themselves far more comfortable. A present security force would do wonders to morale for his team and the opposite for his would be enemies. Of course he had Nozomi's support but she could only do so much while pretending to be the Kage. Nor did he view the deaths of those who would halt progress as well...progressive. The goal was to improve life in Suna not to end it. Besides that he desired to be universally loved in his home nation. If he left a blood trail of bodies there would be those who only saw his help as blood money. Still he would smile as he spoke in return.

    "It's fine if you are typically a non combatant. The goal here isn't actually to fight anyone. Did you know that the purpose of a security team or even an individual guard is simply to observe and report? Of course that is the official role. However there is a game of the minds to be played. You see your very presence as a shinobi will discourage anyone who thought this an easy target. The fact that no one really knows you helps all the more. An unknown variable carries its own risk you see. So lets put a lid on the non combatant type for now yes? Oh my it smells like my treat is ready."

    Playfully Okane would put a finger to his lips and wink as if shushing Asuka. Of course it was meant about their capabilities but they were free to take it as they liked. As the door opened to the tea shop behind him out would emerge a waitress. She didn't look like much but the smell of what she carried was sweet and heavenly. Of course Okane had smelled it before she ever opened the door somehow. As if his senses were well beyond human. He would smile as she settled two Lemon Meringue Eclairs on a plate in the center of the table. Setting down two forks on two napkins before bowing with a nod from Okane and returning to work. The lengthy fresh baked bread mixed with lemon in the bread itself and sugar as well. On top was a wonderful whipped lemon cream topping and if one noticed on the sides it had been stuffed with a butter cream still fresh and warm. Okane would wait until she was gone before picking up his fork and cutting himself off a small bite before humming in delight. Chewing a moment before swallowing. He would use the napkin to dab at his lips before speaking up once more.

    "Ahh sweets are a selfish delight of mine. I encourage you to try one. I gave them the recipe and I must say they preformed admirably. Ahh but the business at hand. You see these five rivers and greenhouses are only the beginning. A much larger project is at foot. You see I intend to make Suna the village of plenty. One hundred rivers and one hundred green houses. A paradise within the desert with people enjoying a life of plenty. I would like to hire you as my deterrent to those who seek to stop me for their own greed. In return I offer you two things. First is a hundred thousand a month paid directly to you for your discretion and services. The second is more of a simple offer. At the moment you claim you are not a great and powerful shinobi. If you allow it I would work to change that. Of course given you are a medic in nature, what I would design for you would be non lethal equipment if you wished. With that my offer is on the table. As are these eclairs."

    “Ah, I think you misunderstood. I’m not on the front lines, but I’ve never been a non combatant.” Responded Asuka, eyes glittering with amusement. His expression didn’t really change too much, but one hand was placed on the table now, the other remaining at his side. “I may be a medic, but I will fight for the good of my village. And that, I believe, is my greatest strength. Nobody expects medics to want to fight, though they fail to realize we’re also the most deadly if given half a chance.” He added, subtly weaving his chakra for a jutsu, to prove a point. He used no hand signs either, and it would take a minute, but if Okane was perceptive he’d notice Asuka himself was also using his abilities.

    The sudden sweets, and the playful attitude of his host were a little offputting, though he didn’t lower his guard. He didn’t pick up his own fork yet either, though he really did want to. He’d already started his jutsu, and interrupting it now would do no good to anybody. The next words, however, nearly made him lose his concentration. One hundred thousand was probably more money than he’d made since becoming a shinobi, and though money wasn’t his only reason for wanting this job, it certainly got his attention. The next words only managed to keep his attention, the part about changing Asuka not being powerful. Could he even do that? Non lethal equipment? Making Asuka stronger? It was an enticing offer, to be sure. But, he still had to be certain about this offer, and about this man. Rather than giving his answer right away, he opted to ask a question instead.

    “That offer is a tempting one, I will admit. Money, and changing my standing as an average, not very powerful shinobi? I almost wanted to accept right away. But before I give you my decision, I’d like some more details on the second part of your offer. What exactly would that entail? Non lethal equipment is appreciated, to be sure, but how exactly would you change my current lack of power?” He asked, eyes never leaving Okane’s face. Could he trust the man? Because this was an offer worth accepting, if his intentions were sincere.

    Okane would smile as he was corrected. It was good to get misconceptions out of the way. Though this one was revealing a great deal about himself Okane supposed this was akin to an interview. Still his glowing green eyes would glance through the purple tinted glasses at the beginning of a technique. He wasn't particularly skilled at medicine himself but he could spot a commonly used technique fairly easily. Still he would set his napkin down and then pick up his tea. Sipping from the cool refreshing liquid as he enjoyed the sensation in such a hot environment. It was always like the dry air was attempting to steal from him his mouth all the moisture he could muster. Still it wouldn't always be this way. In due time he would change the very air in this city. Cool and refreshing water would change the environment to the point that rain would increase. With how much he was changing this city it would stand as prosperous as any other of the major nations. Once he reached the height of it all they would speak his name as a great humanitarian. A hero to the world and his name famous in every mouth. Of course his motives were self centered.

    Still he would take a deep breath of feeling content for the moment as one of the pipelines struck water and a river began to fill. His eyes shifting to it as the other asked his questions. Quick work with the work crews. He could appreciate that. Still already he could smell the fresh water pouring forth and the cheers of the work crew. Water was valuable in the desert at the moment but they were making it common place. Already some of the workers were splashing their faces and celebrating. This village would surely love him to his dying day. Still those glowing green eyes through the purple tinted glasses would look back to Asuka as he finished his inquiry and tilt his head before speaking in return.

    "I have an example for you but do keep in mind that this is not a direct comparison. Take a small child for instance. By themselves not much of a threat. However put a knife in their hands and suddenly a full grown man could die. I am one of two people in this world who makes the greatest of knives. Even without lethality if that is your preference I could make you a danger even to the greatest out there. Beyond that I have training equipment and facilities you won't find anywhere else in Sunagakure. That tower in the center of the city with the Stag symbol on it is mine. Work with me young man and we can train your body and get you the equipment to be so much more."
