| Haraki leaned against the post exiting the village, he buried his shoulder into the chipping red post. His head hung pondering in the gentle breeze.
Hmmm..I have no cards left, my presence could be a hindrance...but I wouldn't want my team to think I bail out on them when things get tough. If one of them were to get hurt trying to 'protect me' I could never forgive my self...
Haraki shifted his gaze toward the faded blue afternoon, the sun complimented the middle of the sky, showing it was almost noon, he yawned, pondering his predicament.
I guess I'll just see who shows up first, I can ask for advice, I DO respect the Sennin after all...
He held an inward breath for a moment, reverting his gaze to the dirt as it was kicked up by the wind. His arms folded tightly over his chest, crossing his feet for balance.

|After leaving the apartment Zaku ran back to his camp and packed for a long trip after packing he ran through a quick check list in his head to make sure he had every thing he needed he adjusted his mask so it fit right on his noise then climbed the wall of a nearby building and made his way to the roof where he quickly ran to the front gate when he got there he thought itd be best to sit up on a nearby roof and wait for the group to start forming|

| Haraki's complete silence of the area had given him a large clue as to when he was no longer alone, he heard the pounding on rooftops nearby, judging by the area he would assume it was an ally. His hand instinctively went to where his pouch would be, he cursed inwardly his expression showing clear signs of sadness, he scanned the area, getting in a basic taijutsu stance. He looked from the bottom level to the roofs, spotting a familiar figure perching on a roof close to the meeting area. Haraki dropped his guard, waving up at him, despite his confusion blended into his thoughts his eyes and mouth shown a sincere smile.
Hey Zaku! Down here! Why are you waiting up there? I understand being overcautious but I think we're safe right here!
He waved frantically a bit longer before putting his arm down and once again leaning on the post to the gate, his feet crossed over one another as he slipped back into a subtle pondering, he was almost certain at this point he wouldn't be much help, unless convinced otherwise he would see his friends off on the mission and wish them luck.

| Zaku perked up and saw haraki waving at him zaku did a quick glance of the area and jumped down and landed in a fighting stance looking around he saw that there was still no one that was a threat and he quickly put down his fists and smiled and scratched his head realizing that no one was of any threat zaku turned to haraki and said
" so what are we to do while we wait for the others"
before finishing his sentence zaku quickly drew a tic tac toe pattern on the ground
" im a tic tac toe champ "
zaku said playfully hoping that haraki would participate in his banter

| Haraki looked down, his shadow overcast of Zaku's face, he laughed heartily, crouching down to greet the new friend. He put on a mock glare as the words slithered from his mouth.
Ha! I bet I could beat you blindfolded!
His false glare was quickly exchanged for a wide smile, as he took a kunai from his pouch and drew an 'x' in the upper left hand corner of the make shift game board.
I suppose its your move.
He squinted as he looked upward back into the sun, glancing around for any of the other companions.

| Zaku thought about his first move cause he knew it was the most important zaku put a "O" zaku was satisfied with his move and looked up at haraki and asked
"so do you think you will be going on this mission?"
|Posted by: Kanki-chan Jun 28 2010, 10:00 PM|
| Well, certainly Vox and I will be going along on this mission. Akuitora appeared behind Zaku's crouched form, with Vox standing next to her. Akuitora still had on her jounin gear, except now her hands glinted from the metal kunai blades that were wrapped around her fingers. Akuitora looked at her simple watch, and sighed. There was still a half hour for Kyo and Nasukara to show up, but Akuitora always did need to learn patience.
Glad to see you two here this early. Any idea on how soon Nasukara's going to show up? Akuitora asked Haraki and Zaku.

| Haraki stashed his kunai in the appropriate pouch, begining his drawing of carless scribbles in the dirt with his finger, he looked up at them, taking a deep relaxing breath.
Sadly, no...I only came to see you off, I must go inform the elders of my clan of my alleged crimes, and see if they will forgive me and allow me to create more cards...
He spoke with soft care in his voice, only positivity flowed through the sentence, he did not fear the elders judgment. He stood from a crouching position, stretching his legs before continuing his match with Zaku.
I will most defiantly want to know when you return, and if the mission was a complete success, until then I suppose I am in wait if I'm needed.
He crouched back down, balancing on his toes, he removed the kunai from the pouch again, drawing a light 'x' in the lower right corner of the board.

| Nasukara wandered up toward the group, thoughts flying through his head through and a night packed upon him.
This is it, the beginning, today marks the beginning of the end for that forsaken band of swindling thieves. I can only HOPE that things go well for us on our venture
Nasukara knew that if he could capture one of them, then he could use a couple torture methods he learned to get the information he wanted.
I'm present... Is everyone ready?

| Zaku stood and looked at haraki then at kanki-chan and nasakura he smiled at the three and said
i am glad to see that our team is forming but i am sad that haraki will not be joining us i can only hope that i am worthy of taking your place.
Zaku bowed to haraki Zaku looked at his shadow and stared at it even after standing he stared thinking about how he might be shunned by the others for taking harakis place.

| Well Haraki, I'm sad to hear that you won't be coming, but if it's what needs to be done, so be it. Nasukara, we're just waiting to see if someone else is showing up, and then we can get to Sand with the merchants. Akuitora instructed to the other shinobi. She relaxed from her serious look, hoping that Kyo would be here before the half hour was up. If he came late, he'd have to do a lot of sprinting to catch up. Plus, they'd only had the past evening together between missions, some time together would be nice.
Well, here's hoping he shows up soon, Akuitora thought to herself as she watched Zaku talk to Haraki, Zaku shouldn't worry so much. He'd have to be a crappy shinobi for everyone to shun him. Well, Vox might, but that's Vox. In that case, Zaku would have to be an idiot fighter if Vox wants to shun him.

|"Too bad you're not joining us, kid." Vox said to Haraki. "When I heard about your little mishap, I brought toys for you to play with. A little something to even the score on this job. Not really stuff you want to use within city limits, though.I'm taking them along, just in case. Never know, eh?" He inspected the caravan for a moment. "Boss, might want to stash the claws for now. Pros use custom weapons, we wanna seem like a couple schmucks they just hired."|
|Posted by: Haraki Jul 2 2010, 03:49 AM|
| Haraki chuckled, nodding at Vox. Taking a deep breath and releasing it before looking up and speaking.
You put it like that and I'm even more bummed out I can't go, but I've got clan related things to do here...maybe next time, or who knows, I might make it out there this time.
He smiled at Vox warmly before turning to the others in the group, the sky had become over cast as the day began to become more dreary as clouds settled in for the afternoon, slight rumbling was heard off in the distance, very much implying the team's journey will have the extra spice of bad weather to deal with.
Go now, you don't have a lot of time to sit here, I'll see you all when you get back I promise!
Haraki grinned, practically shoving each and everyone of them out side the gate. Rolling his neck as he walked back in he placed his hands firmly on his head buried in his mane of hair, then walked off in the direction of one of the village elders, he had some stuff he had to take care off, and he hoped of fulfilling his promise of meeting them out there.

| Akuitora stowed her claws for the time being, listening to Haraki's advice to leave. She checker her watch, and sighed: it was indeed noon.
Time to get going... Akuitora thought to herself as she joined the rest of the merchant crew and shinobi.
