"Roger."

"We'll be back soon!"

She body flickers away.

Kakashi follows quickly after.

Permalink

Amajina blinks at where they were. 

She should... Probably? Also report this to someone else???

...Uh.

Now who to secondarily report to...

Permalink

 


It's not until late the next day that Sayuri lets Chihiro out, to forage for additional supplies.

Permalink

She's pretty languid and feeling like being lazy and having her wife just bring things back, but, well. 

Sayuri's a social creature. So she finds her friends - a bit weirdly, Elieyha crosses her path first - to ask: "Anything interesting happen in the afterparty?"

Permalink

"-Not technically at the afterparty, no."

Permalink

"...What happened?"

Permalink

"Amajina reported an Akatsuki attack on one of the unaffiliated jinchuuriki nearby. Shinrei-san and Hatake-san responded."

"...I understand they are both expected to make a full recovery."

Permalink

Okay that's alarming. 

"Where are they right now?"

Permalink

"Thanks."

She'll just... Go to fetch Chihiro.

Permalink

"What is it?"

Permalink

"Apparently both our teachers got into a fight with the Akatsuki and ended up in the hospital. Elieyha says they're doing well, but I want to go check on them."

Permalink

"-Ah. Yes. Let's go."

Permalink

Onward! To find their idiot teachers. 

Permalink

They are in the hospital, as promised. In the same room, even.

Kakashi seems pretty out of it. Chakra exhaustion, most likely.

Permalink

"You okay?" she asks, quietly. 

Permalink

She takes Sayuri's hand. "Of course; we were a natural match for who we ended up fighting. Mei's mostly just annoyed at me for running off without letting her know first."

Permalink

"Was it Kisame and that Uchiha again?" she asks after a moment, biting her lip. 

Permalink

Squeeze. "No. Which is more worrying, though was better news for us."

Permalink

"...Which Uchiha?"

Permalink

"Uchiha Jakkou, alongside Hoshigake Kisame."

"Between when we met your team in Wave and the chuunin exams, we encountered two missing-nin, associated with the Akatsuki, and came into conflict with them. We were unsure what caused their presence in the region or even caused them to start the conflict, especially since we were operating outside of the Land of Water's formally claimed territory and, as far as we could tell at the time, the meeting was accidental."

"The fight was - severe. Both Jakkou and Kisame are beyond ordinary S-class nin." She glances at Kakashi. "I would not engage them lightly."

Permalink

"Jakkou-chan always was precocious," he acknowledges.

Permalink

...She gives her sensei an uncertain glance.

Permalink

Ugh. Mei's probably gonna make faces at her again, but, this isn't even really fully their intel, they already dumped a lot of their information on Kisame into general circulation when putting bounties on him, and if the Akatsuki are going after all jinchuuriki - and will therefore make attempts at Kiri's three jinchuuriki, and Kiri's only barely stable and has the most to lose, right now - then it really is in their best interest to have the other villages pick some of the bastards off.

"I'll whine at Mei about sending at least Konoha formal write ups of what we know about the Akatsuki," she says with a sigh. "She and your Hokage can have fun with politics on what gets sent to other villages. Which, fortunately, not my job. I hate politics. You accept an important position to protect your people and no one tells you, oh, by the way, the hardest part won't be everyone trying to kill you, it will be dumb politics."

She's possibly more concussed than she'd thought.
