"So, are you looking forward to going to Kumo?"
The awkward silence was broken by the ox, and the two genin relaxed. "Sorta... I'd be happier if we weren't going there for... this." Kaki still couldn't bring himself to repeat the situation, and a pang of pain in his heart cooled the usual fire in his eyes...
Yami picked up where his human partner had left off. "It'd be better if we were going for a festival or something like that... It'll be our first time in Kumogakure no Sato, too. We've traveled through Raikou no Kuni a little, but we've never gone to the actual village... Ah, Fushii-sama, does Tomoushii-dono know where he's going?"
Kaki nodded, his brown eyes turning back to the heavy wooden door that was the Kyudo Guard Tower's entrance. "We've been through a lot of the tower, even some of the hidden rooms, during our training, but we've never seen anything like a post office... and, unless one of the guards or the other Archers is the postman--or postwoman--I don't think there's one in there..."
