The notion of a journey to Sunagakure no Sato wasn't something that Akihiko held in particularly high regard, if he was being honest. Which he usually wasn't; if someone had asked, he would have smiled and said that the Hidden Sand was quite lovely this time of year. But, in truth, he found it too hot and too sandy. Overall unpleasant. The Hyuuga vastly preferred the rich greens of the Land of Rivers, and the rolling mountains and misty hills that were cool and serene. Instead, Sunagakure, being a major village, was bustling by contrast. Crowded with people, Akihiko had to watch his step to avoid being run over by impatient shoppers and purposeful persons.

In addition to the physical displeasure brought by the village's geographical location, visiting the Hidden Sand proper was always something of a bitter pill to swallow. It was, of course, the village that warred hardest with Konohakure, where Akihiko had been born. While Tanigakure was a pleasant and peaceful place, and more than accepting of their Konoha neighbors, tensions ran higher in the desert.

Pulling up his hood to obscure his face a bit more, Akihiko felt uncomfortable, both physically and emotionally. His pace quickened, and in a sense, that only made him stand out as all the more suspicious than he otherwise would have been. But, if he had been aware of that fact, he wouldn't have done it in the first place. Instead, he was sticking out like a sore thumb. To calm himself, he reached passed the neck of his shirt to grip gently the green gem that hung from a cord there. It helped, slightly.

In contrast, the Uchiha appeared very much the Sunagakure native. She dressed as they did, familiarized herself with the village in which she lived, and even could navigate the unspoken, undrawn lanes of foot traffic that wound through every street in its own unique flow. The only differentiation was her obviously foreign heritage, clearly hailing from those that lived in the Land of Fire. Even now, she slipped between the sandstone buildings with an ease that spoke of comfort, her hitai-ate pulled up over her forehead and hair back in a messy ponytail, a tan and brown cloak over her shoulders keeping the sun away while crop top in a blending cream left little flashes of her relatively pale tummy. The billowy pants she'd chosen were skirt-like, but tucked in at each ankle, giving the distinct impression that it was indeed not free-flowing. Honestly, she'd come out shopping, but it wasn't really what Ameya had wanted to do that day. Her responsibilities to herself often went by the wayside when training or meeting with other people were possibilities.

So it was that the young woman noticed the obvious stand-out, pushing at the edge of a small crowd that had paused to let a cart go by but hadn't yet begun to keep the higher pace of civilians milling about. With an impatience born of anxiety, he seemed to move a little quicker, as though getting inside, out of the crowd, out of the sun, were something he wished more fervently than others. When the kunoichi let her eyes pass over him a second time, however, they widened slightly in recognition. Shopping forgotten, the girl slipped easily from her own little moving mob to the next, and then crossed that with little difficulty before finally slipping in behind the man gripping his pendant with a little tap on the shoulder.

"You seem new in town,"
she stated with a smile evident in her voice.

Were it not for his shinobi training, Akihiko might have jumped with a start when a voice suddenly spoke up behind him. Unseen, his voice did catch slightly in his throat in surprise, as he quickly pulled his hand from his collar, letting his necklace slide back beneath his clothing, obscured from view. Dropping his hands to his sides he turned swiftly to face the voice, consciously bidding himself and his body to relax and appear casual.

The voice was one that he recognized; they had met enough times, and had grown to a familiar enough basis with one-another that he could place her face and voice as that of Ameya, a fellow Konoha-descendant and jounin of the Hidden Sand. It was the first of those things that help authentically put Akihiko at ease, rather than simply forcing his body to go through the motions in order to present himself as such. It was the fact that she was a countryman in that sense that Akihiko felt himself able to be just a bit more honest.

"And by all accounts, I'd like to keep it that way, Ameya-chan," He quipped in reply, sliding his hands smoothly into the pockets of his trousers. "The climate here isn't particularly agreeable to me."

The slight tension in the shoulder she had tapped gave the only clue that Ameya had surprised him. It felt good to be able to, in any way, creep up on a peer of this caliber, and she could almost feel the satisfied smile as it picked up the edges of her mouth even further. It was especially fun to sneak up on someone with a Kekkei Genkai so revered for its ability to know all that was happening within a certain radius. He whirled to face her, but seemed essentially casual, as though wanting to turn to face whoever had addressed him quickly, but without worry. She didn't know how much of it was feigned, but Ameya could guarantee that he was as pleased to see her as she was him. He didn't like coming to Sunagakure proper, and she supposed she couldn't blame him. She had practically grown up here, but he was often out.

"Oh?" she replied, a slight raise of her eyebrows heightening her appearance of surprise. "But you seemed right at home. Are you headed somewhere special?"

"Does 'out' count as somewhere special?" He remarked in a half-miserly tone, glancing quickly around the packed streets, wishing that the two of them might have been conversing in a somewhat more private location. Leaning back slightly, Akihiko glanced up at the sky, then exhaled a large sigh, as if conceding himself to defeat. "Well, I suppose I have something to do now," he conceded, turning his white eyes to gaze at his Uchiha kouhai. "Or, at least, I assume you have something in mind, no?" He questioned, raising an eyebrow inquisitively, a slight smile curling onto his face. Busy as ninja often were, Akihiko could only imagine that, if Ameya approached him as she did, that she already had some course of action in mind, even if it were vague.

A small cascade of laughter left Ameya's lips after he asked if she had anything in mind. The girl really only ever did a few things. "Absolutely," she replied, reaching up to tug on his shirt a little as though beckoning him. It was a somewhat flirty action, accentuated by a wink as she turned about and began leading him off the main street, to an alley that was more easily traversed by the pair. An extra swish to her hips was given for his benefit, but it was paired with a cloak that hid much of her rear, only giving the occasional flash. "I think something physical would be fun," she continued to tease, glancing back over her shoulder to the Hyuuga. In reality, she hadn't had any real plans, but when the decision had been thrust upon her, the Uchiha quickly took on the role of arbiter. She figured he might be up for a spar in the training grounds, but the girl also enjoyed hinting at a little something else.

Beckoned out of the crowded main street, Akihiko felt more comfortable once removed from the hustle and bustle of the village proper. His gait was casual as he followed slightly behind her, though his gaze, eyes lacking pupils, made it more difficult than normal to discern where his attention might have lingered as her hips swayed. He let his face fall to a more neutral fashion, playing along with his junior's teasing, head tilting slightly to the side as if somewhat confused. "Such as? I have no idea what you might have in mind," he replied, tongue-in-cheek as he shifted his stance slightly and kept his hands simply tucked in his pockets. He adjusted his posture then, leaning against the alley wall, shifting his head occasionally between glancing at the passers by in the crowded main street and looking over his companion.

Slender shoulders shrugged as she paused in the alley, their pace casual enough to allow them to take the time to relax and enjoy the uncrowded area. "I don't know, you really seem to like using those hands of yours," she replied innocently, her arms bending at the elbow and turning her palms up to either side. "But I really don't think it's appropriate to do that sort of thing here, in an alley," she continued with a softly admonishing tone. Her head tilted as though to beckon, then, and resumed her stroll, steps light as she approached the end of the alley. She paused, and turned to a small stairway that led up into a walkway that crossed over the traffic of the street. Allowing the person coming down the stairs to pass her by and go on her way, she opted for the skywalk, heading slowly but surely to the training grounds. "So what brings you to Sunagakure no Sato once again? I mean, I know you're employed here, technically, but aren't you actually living elsewhere right now...?"

"You have an obscene mind for a kouhai-chan," the male teasingly admonished in turn. Weaving around the person that had descended down the stairway, the Hyuuga followed after the Uchiha down the alley and up the stairs and to the skywalk, taking in the features of the village. For as much as he did not like the geography and climate of Sunagakure, it certainly was different from what he was used to at home, and that was worth some kind of astonishment, at least, even if Akihiko felt like he might have resented that feeling. Turning to glance back at Ameya - he certainly didn't know the way to the place they were going, even if he suspected where it was that she might have been leading - and offered a faint shrug. "Mission debriefings, quarterly reports, all the usual bookkeeping. What has you out and about today, and teasing old friends?"

Long lashes batted coquettishly, a hand coming up to touch her sternum as though to ask, "Me?" The foot bridge took them over to the next alley, and it was clear beyond it that the next street was much less crowded than the two previous, as they left the more civilian area for the shinobi district, the academy and training grounds present in the area. "I needed to go shopping, and then I saw a familiar face," she replied, once again glancing back over one shoulder. "You ought to request an assignment here for a while," she continued. "It'd be good to know Suna's layout a bit better, you know? Do you have somewhere you're staying while doing all this reporting?"

Despite her teasing, she had to admit to finding the man attractive. If he didn't really have a place, she wondered how awkward it might seem to ask him if he wanted to stay with her. She had the space, but it might seem fairly forward for someone she saw somewhat rarely. Or maybe promiscuous. Ameya didn't really want to seem either thing, so she... would probably leave it. Ah, well.

Following across the walkways, the elevated position gave a view of the village that Akihiko had to admit was more appealing than what he had seen of the village from below. Almost as appealing of a sight as Ameya herself could be, when she wanted to. She was flirtatious, though quickly switched her act to that of someone shocked at his admonition. He gave her a wry smile and a shrug, playing along as if to say "Who else?"

Her reasons for being out and about were much more mundane than his own, which he supposed only made sense if she had immediately diverted her plans to invite Akihiko to spar. He couldn't blame her, exactly, in her own place he likely would have done the same thing, should she have been visiting Tanigakure. She said that it would be better if he visited more, and Akihiko clicked his tongue softly in disgust at the thought.

"Were it not for you, I wouldn't be here for as long as I am anyway," he spoke, shaking his head softly. "I hadn't planned for staying that long, so I didn't work out a place to stay. I thought about just leaving tonight, being honest. Besides, I wouldn't want to impose," he justified, holding his hands up as if defending himself from some attack.

An eyebrow raised, this time unintentionally. He was staying longer to visit her? She supposed that if he meant to leave that night, and she was interrupting his visit, that technically it was just true. Still, the possible implication was that he might take additional time specifically to see her. In a place where it was often hard to find someone that she felt might genuinely both feel for her - even as a friend - and deserve her own feelings in return, that was of great value. Perhaps it was her bias; she understood that people were people, and some Sunagakure ninja who were Genin now, for example, were not even alive when she acquired her grudge. Still, she couldn't ever quite feel that someone who was a Suna native would actually consider her as anything more than a subjugated foreigner. This man, however, was from the same shady forest as she, and allowed his distaste for the desert to show more freely than her own. He felt kindred.

Her eyebrows raised, despite the incongruous hot flash and small goosebumps along her back, shoulders, and arms. "I never offered to let you stay with me," she began, her tone seeming surprised and amused by his apparent assumption. "... but I guess I do have the room. And I did suggest that you stay a bit longer. Well, if I'm ruining your plans that much..." she continued, tapping a slender finger against her chin and glancing up at the sky, as though thinking. "... I'll let you sleep at my place while you're in town." She smiled, and nodded, her gaze dragging from him to the small training area, marked with paint, chalk, a few training dummies, and some free weights. "For now, though... ready to get physical?"

Listening to Ameya rationalize her way through the decision, Akihiko gave a playful, exaggerated shrug. "You make it sound like I don't have a choice," he teased, as if her offer were somehow a task to be avoided. "Well, I guess I have no choice but to accept," he relented with a slight laugh. It was a kind offer, and it wasn't an unappealing one, and while he wondered about the nature of intent, he certainly did not doubt it was a good and earnest intention. While he did not like the deserts, and was loathe to spend more time there than he had to, he felt like it would have been more of a hassle to justify a refusal of her offer rather than to simply accept it.

Having arrived at the training grounds, Akihiko glanced around. They were rather simplistic, but that wasn't a bad thing. A ninja's training could differ entirely from that of another shinobi, and so training grounds open to all shinobi erred on the side of caution and were rather basic in layout and supply. If a teacher or shinboi wanted to engage in more specific training endeavors, they would need to arrange that specifically in advance. The Hyuuga nodded, then smiled, putting some distance between the two of them, around five meters or so. "I'm not sure how good I am with my hands, though," he teased.

With a nod, playing along with the notion that she had forced some onerous task onto Akihiko, the girl moved to the middle of the small, cleared area. "Oh, my. Perhaps, then, practice is in order," she replied to his statement. "Or maybe I'll just have to use some helpful tools and satisfy my physical need, myself," she continued, brushing fingers against the tattoos on her wrist and bringing forth the linked kama and kunai that was her personal kusarigama. "Either way, I look forward to making you sweat," Ameya teased, spinning the chain section connected to the kama. It went through a few whirls as she waited for him to signal ready, not wanting to catch him off guard. If nothing else, Ameya planned to fight fair in the here and now. If she ever had to play dirty against him, the experience would pay off.

"Oh my; most unorthodox," Akihiko replied, voice feigning some kind of scandalous overtone as he let his body shift into a combat stance. Legs spread, body perpendicular to his opponent. Both hands open, flat-palmed, with one held close to his body and the other extended from him at a distance, positioned towards Ameya. He opted, in the beginnings of a friendly spar, not to ignite his Byakugan. She was the one who had initiated the spar, and having not immediately made her Sharingan manifest, it seemed somehow improper for him to use his Byakugan now, either.

Slowly, Akihiko began to move. He did not advance, instead beginning by moving, one step at a time, to the left. He worked a slow and steady circle around the outer edge of the training grounds, prowling around Ameya like an animal might stalk prey. With her weapon she would boast a range advantage, but still Akihiko did not advance. It was not in his style, usually, to serve as the aggressor. Instead, his soft combat style focused on responses and counters. When she began, he would look for any opening to reply.

Watching Akihiko move into his preferred hand-to-hand stance, Ameya couldn't help but appreciate his fluid shift as she gave a soft laugh in response to his statement. The Taijutsu stances from Konoha were all very well-suited for close combat, profile narrowed, weight balanced, and muscles poised to move at any moment. His initial caution, beginning to pad quietly in a circle around her, waiting for an opening, reminded the ANBU of her compatriot's preferred method of combat. He would be passive, and devastating in the counter. She couldn't let that happen, or risk embarrassment. Luckily for the pair, the Uchiha certainly tended to aggression, and there would be no waiting game, here. Ameya tensed, calves tightening, forearm coiling as the lazy spin her kama had adopted became something more dangerous, a whirling scythe that quickly whipped out for the gap between the Hyuuga's legs, a shift of the wrist causing the length of chain to roll and thus angle the weapon around in an attempt to trip her sparring partner. Her other hand wrapped the chain about her forearm, the kunai found there instead of a weight held in a reverse grip, on the defense.

Each of them slipped into the roles of their dance, with Ameya taking up the aggressive first step. Akihiko, in turn, would shift in reply. The strike of her kusarigama was swift, and while it showed a truly impressive amount of finesse (more than he felt he had with his fists), Akihiko made up for the difference with his cunning. He had expected her to start by leveraging her range advantage, and he was quick to react when he did see what move she had chosen. He kicked off from the ground, sending himself upwards in an attempt to jump over the strike at his legs, with enough height to linger there long enough for the return of the kusarigama to pass before the Hyuuga's landing.

He was not nearly as swift as she, however, and it was unlikely that his jump were to be entirely successful. Perhaps enough so to evade the initial arc of the chain at his feet, but it was unlikely that he were to remain airborn for long enough to be free of a retaliatory opening on his way down to the ground.

The measured response of leaping into the air left the Suna-nin's dark eyes tracking up, into the glaring sky for a glimpse at the shadow that had just ascended to it. While normally, such a dodge against a projectile might simply mean a stalemate - defense had succeeded and no more followup could be achieved. The kusarigama, however, allowed adjustments, and Ameya's quick reactions allowed her to grip the chain and pull her arm up, the weapon at its end obeying after a moment and arcing in that direction as well, chasing the airborne opponent and this time attempting to wrap about his leg, so that she might use the momentum of her swing to usher the hopefully caught Akihiko to a painful, though not crippling, landing.

As expected of an opponent of her caliber, Ameya wasn't going to be deterred by the first dodge, especially not with a weapon as maneuverable as the kusarigama. She maneuvered it up to pursue him, and she was as swift as her weapon was deadly. Akihiko could predict that, however, and his foresight afforded him the ability to dodge. Were it not for his calculation, not just of her attempt to trip him, but of where she would aim her strike, he would not have been able to kick his foot away and dodge, as he did. When his two feet came back onto the ground he felt his body tense. Kicking off his feet he sought to counterattack, immediately closing the distance with a pivot off of his foot to bring the kunoichi within striking distance of an open-palmed strike.

Akihiko had always been one to plan several moves ahead. While she was capable, Ameya preferred to keep her options open, so when he dodged her hastily timed followup by kicking his leg aside, she immediately twisted, reeling the weapon back in to catch it in her free hand. She backed a few steps, inhaling a breath as the Hyuuga landed and began whirling to gain momentum for a strike. Her deft backpedaling left her with the space and time to make a near dodge, exhaled breath leaving her in the form of burning ash. The technique obscured vision, leaving her with the ability to retreat silently into the expanding cloud, her footsteps stalking out to the right before she lashed out again with her weapon. The strike was, once again, aimed to trip up the young man, whipping through the suddenly silent space where she had last spied, or currently heard, him.
