"I've never liked taking soldier pills,
" stated Kairebu as he glared at the solid round, dark colored concoction in his hand. With disgust, he forced it along with the rest in his mouth and down his throat. The guy never liked them, true. But he hated being force fed worse. After a moment, Kairebu tried to relax a bit even as the soldier pill kicked in. As the chakra in his system got a slight boost, the 27 year pushed upwards until he was on his feet. A glance he shot at Raika was coupled with his own mental speech projection.
"I was informed Otoha was in a relationship with the one he was trying to save. Didn't know it was Omoi,
" after saying this, he continued to walk around the house(with a very slight limp). "In a way I'm glad that's who it was, though. She made a good choice with that guy. He may appear monstrous, but he knows his priorities. I've rarely seen a man so dedicated to another woman. I'd say he reminds me of myself...
...just, when I was a little younger."
As Kairebu made it to the other side of the house, Elice was still on the two way, now in casual conversation with the other person on the line(although, she broke the conversation to give a few of her comrades an order) Anyoko waited patiently on the porch, sitting on the sofa next to the door. A simple white shirt, black sweater, Kairebu's favorite jeans, and a white knit cap with speckles of blue and grey all over it were the cloths that she had lain out next to her on the sofa.
"Hey, she brought my winter cap, too. It's been a while since I've worn that,
" stated a slightly more cheerful Kairebu out loud to his sister as he forced himself up the back steps.
"MmHmm. I don't remember the last time I saw you wearing it, myself. Now, come on. Off with the jacket, the vest and that shirt. The vest looks okay, but the other two need to go,
" came Anyoko's reply, with the last sentence bringing a look of dismay to Kairebu's face.
"But, I love this jacket!
"Not so loud! Oh my god.
"Anyoko Soratodai. This jacket is going to be CLEANED and PATCHED, you hear me?
"Not if Deidra sama has anything to say about it~ Now, off with them.
Kairebu shook his head and slowly obeyed, taking off the upper parts of his clothing. Anyoko then picked every article up, and once all three were in her possession a familiar smile came on her face that incurred her brother's eyes to grow wide in anger.
"I mean it. That's going to be patched up, or there'll be hell to pay.
Just as he sated this, however, another figure approached from behind. Rather, several approached while only one of them went up the steps.
"Excuse me. I'll need to take that clothing from you, miss," stated the tall man, not much older than Kairebu it would seem. While not really frightened by the man (as her brother was close by), she was still rather taken by surprise.
"Why do you need them? Is this part of Elice's investigation?
"Ah. I apologize, sir. The IAU just gave us orders to retrieve it all for evidence."
"IAU? And why is my clothing evidence now?
"Yeah. They're the guys the DC was telling you about; Internal Affairs. And it seems they aren't going to debrief you on what happened today, unless you decide you want to personally make a statement about it in BOLT Captain Nue's trial. Current circumstances have forced them not to try and get you involved with the trial, and rather compile evidence themselves to-"
"Build a case on him? For assaulting a ranking shinobi, no doubt. Are they serious? He gave up the fight! He turned back! What more should these 'Internal Affairs' people want?
"It's out of our hands, sir. The IAU only takes orders from the Senate and the Raikage. This case, it's the senate, and when they're set on something happening, it usually happens regardless of what even shinobi top brass say about it sometimes."
"There's GOT to be some way to get charges on him dropped.
"It's possible. But, hey. Along with our orders, there was some actual good news that came from IAU involving you, sir. That's saying something, too. IAU doesn't give good news, at least unless they're forced to. But, you'll be told all about it by the DC herself. (Trust me. It may just be what will give you a better edge at helping Otoha dono)"
The exchange between the two made Anyoko very curious about things. Once it seemed to be over, she finally spoke up.
"So am I giving him the clothes or what, Kairebu?
" she asked with a perturbed expression towards her brother, then a cautious glance at the Police-nin.
"I suppose we better cooperate,
" stated Kairebu with a waved hand as gesture for Anyo to give the man what IAU needed. After she obeyed, he went and picked up his jeans from the sofa. "Now if you'll both excuse me.
The Police-nin and Anyoko exchanged a glance before they both hurriedly went on their way to give the sennin his privacy.
After Elice gave her subordinates the order, about five of them took off after Kairebu towards the back of the house. A few more words were then exchanged by the Deputy Chief and her contact, before she put the two way on standby, gazed around for a moment, ...then focused her eyes on the female sennin.
"A penny for your thoughts, Raika joshi?
The question was given in a light, airy tone as Elice was genuinely concerned about the situation and Raika's potential involvement.
"You two seem fairly attached. Not really surprising by what I've read up on about former ANBU, and the old reports made by him. Of course, he wasn't married then. Though, he is now. Hmmm. That wouldn't bother you, though. Soratodai san is just a friend, as I can tell,
" continued Elice as she came nearer, seeming more to be trying to make simple conversation to pass the time rather than investigate at the moment. "Don't worry. According to "Infernal" Affairs, the senate came to a decision that might make things start looking up for him since his return to service. What I'd like to know, though...
Now Elice was blowing her cover a little on buttering the woman up for her to open up, but the question was simple at least.
"...would you trust what Kairebu just told me about this 'Flynn' guy? Do you think he'd make something up like that just to try and throw someone off his case?
