The afternoon was warm and sunny in Kirigakure as Calis strode up to the gates. He was bored and taking a break from his training in order to ensure he didn’t push himself too hard. During this self imposed stretch of time he remembered how bored he and Chigetsu had been on gate guard duty and decided to pay whoever was on duty a visit with a couple of drinks and some rice balls. They were a solid snack to have between things and wouldn’t require them to go on their lunch break to eat. Either way, it had been something for him to do.
Arriving at the gates he would smile and wave his hand at the guards who nodded at him and looked at him curiously. “Morning you two. I remembered how boring guard duty was for me, and I’m not doing anything. So I made you guys something to munch on and brought you some drinks. Hope that’s alright.”
He would say, holding the wrapped box out to them and prompting a smile. “No problem, names Shinji, thanks.”
He would say, taking the proffered basket as the woman spoke up. “Elania, thanks, we appreciate it.”
She would say as Shinji set the basket down. “Heads up”
Shinji would say as a group of people appeared on the road in the distance. The blonde haired woman would turn back as a guard appeared next to them as well looking at a spot in the ground.
Calis would turn to the man with an eyebrow raised, he hadn’t noticed either of the two call for him, but the man was looking at the ground in confusion. “Something wrong?”
Calis asked, his voice curious before the man’s eyes snapped up to his. “Do you know earth release?”
He asked, causing Calis to blink and nod. The man was higher ranked them him, he had to be. Calis was the bottom of the totem pole rank rise as a simple genin, so that meant he listened to others, not ordered them. “Can you use an Earth Jutsu to excavate here, see what’s down there, and then return the earth to it’s normal state?”
The man would ask, prompting Calis to nod before he turned toward the spot and clapped both hands upon the ground. The earth rose to his call, rising up and revealing, a body. “What the hell?!”
Calis called as he stood and dashed toward the young man that had risen with the earth. He carefully pulled the individuals limp form from the earth. Long black hair, pale skin, and utterly unconscious. He pulled him away from the rocks and gently set him aside before clapping his hands onto the ground again and restoring the earth to it’s original position. “I just came on shift and used my sensory jutsu to get a feel for those people down the road. I felt this guy by complete accident.”
The guard said as Calis checked the pulse of the teen. “He’s alive, I’m taking him to a hospital.”
He said before picking the unconscious form of Akihiro up and taking him into the village.
Extricating Akihiro from the ground and taking him into Kirigakure, I have Xur's permission to use one of Kiri's NPC for the task of sensing his location.
