It was a warm day like always within the Land of Wind, nothing was out of the ordinary. But, the best place to spend these days would be around the Plaza, especially around the glass fountain at the center of the wells. The water would provide those of Sunagakure some relief from the heat that would beat down on them constantly. Emi was no different than those who wished to relieve themselves from the heat for the day as she had decided to come to the fountain.

It wasn't just the water that brought her to it, but the glass was a beautiful sight. In the right light, the reflection between it and the water would create rainbows at the right time of day on the ground. Emi wanted to get even a brief sight of this pretty sight as she had finally made it close enough to it, hands on her hips as she took a deep breath. There wasn't too many people around, mostly younger ones who came out while their parents were doing their work for the day which made things much easier for Emi to be out with any stress. The plaza had some food places nearby and small food carts that would normally sell cold sweats to the children to cool off.

"Yes! The perfect timing, we're almost there!" Emi excitedly spoke to herself outloud, not caring whoever heard the girl as she took a look around to hopefully find herself the perfect spot to wait and the perfect food cart to get a small snack from in the middle of the day.

Having picked up the rice for the temple, Ikuyo found herself making her way home. Kaoruko carried the large crate which housed the bags of food. While the puppet could move much quicker than it currently was, Ikuyo kept her short steps and steady pace with each step bringing with it a chime from her shakujo. The sound of rushing water caught her attention as she took a moment to gather her bearings. The fountain was said to be quite beautiful and was a frequented spot around this time of day. Deciding that it would be okay to take a short break, Ikuyo and Kaoruko moved in unison toward the source of the sound.

"That is nice." She remarked, feeling the spray of the cascading water gently touch her skin. The heat of Sunagakure had never bothered her but she couldn't deny that cool mist did make it a little more tolerable than usual. Her left hand danced in some isolated ballet forcing Kaoruko to place the crate against the fountain's foundation. Ikuyo placed her hand on one of the hanging seals of her sugegasa and Kaoruko blinked away in a popping sound. She leaned into her shakujo and let out a content sigh.

An excited voice rang through the peace she had managed to find. She couldn't help but notice that the feminine voice came from someone who, despite using the word "we're", appeared to be alone. This concerned Ikuyo, who prided herself in her ability to sense what was around her despite being unable to see it. Was there someone there that had managed to escape her senses? She had to find out. Turning to the general direction of the voice, she took a calming breath.

"Excuse me, apologies for interrupting you, but who is the we you were referring to? I don't see anyone with you."

Emi's day seemed to be interrupted by a random person, her head shook in a moment as she was broken from her excitement to be corrected on her grammar. The girl stumbled for a moment as her hands came together as the tips lightly pushed against each other, she quickly tried to formulate her response to the girl. "I-I u-uh should have said... That I am here, not we're here. I supposed, I'm sorry..." The girl's voice was low and confused, much different than the excitement that she had when she first came here with. But, she immediately shifted her gears as she came closer to the girl. The other had seemed like some kind of monk by her attire, or something? She didn't want to assume as her hand came out with the palm open to the girl, offering her a handshake.

"My name is Emi Hibana! Nice to meet you....?" She offered out her name and ended in return with general statement that hoped for the other girl to give her name in return to the bright eyed girl. But, something didn't seem right as she approached this way. The girl seemed to be, how to put this, not exactly looking at Emi at all. Even when she approached, the eyes didn't meet the girl. Emi shook her head slightly, waiting to see how the other would react. Hopefully it would go well...

Moving one of her hands from her shakujo to her chest, Ikuyo breathed a sigh of relief. She fixed a small smile on her lips though it looked anything but fake. "Oh, no need to apologize, I was just concerned I had missed something is all." The sound of shuffling feet signaled that the owner of the feminine voice was approaching though Ikuyo's gaze stayed fixed in some just-off general direction.

"Emi Hibana, that's a lovely name." She replied firstly with a curtsy. "Ito, Ikuyo, it's nice to meet you as well." The air between them felt a little stifling Ikuyo noticed. She was adept at picking up this kind of thing, the change of mood or the general atmosphere around her. She tilted her head softly and widened her smile, adding kindle to the fire of her warming personality. "I see you're a bit uncertain." She began with a small laugh. "There's nothing for me to hide. I am blind, though I have my ways." She said, placing her hand into Emi's empty palm and shaking it daintily.

Emi lightly shaked the girl's hand, almost shaking a bit. It seemed like her confusion was right as the girl revealed her blindness with ease and kept the setting warm enough for Emi to not move back in fear. "I-I see!" Emi realized what she just said and her hand left Ikuyo's hand quick as it came to her face, a light slap to her forehead as she realized what she just said. The orange-haired girl's hand lowered as she shook her head and replied, "N-Nice to meet you too! What brings y-you out here today?" No matter how much Emi tried, she was slightly uncomfortable. It was never her intention of being loud enough to catch the attention of someone else, but sure enough it happened due to her excitement. Was it fine that she was meeting someone? Was it okay to be that loud?

The girl slightly bit her lower lip as she replied to her own question before she gave Ikuyo a chance out of nervousness. "I came out because it's supposed to be beautiful today and possibly get a snack!" Emi quickly looked back and forth as she thought about what to get on her own then turned back to Ikuyo, blinking and waiting to see how the girl would respond. The girl's hands came together and held each other as her arms relaxed lowered instead of being held close to her upper body.

Her hand moved from Emi's to her lips, poorly stifling the giggle that came from hearing the girl slap herself. "Please, don't change the way you speak or act around me. If you'll recall I used the same term before you did." She tapped a finger against her chin thoughtfully. "What brings me out here today, hmm? It might have a little to do with the temple asking me to pick up the rice shipment for the month. Personally I'd like to believe my feet brought me out here. Don't tell them though, they're prone to getting minds of their own!" She laughed, a soft and airy thing, at her own little joke. She could feel Emi's nervousness and figured the best way to cure it was with humor.

On a more serious note, Ikuyo's head turned upward. "Would you be so kind as to do me a favor? It's okay if you refuse, we have just met after all." She waited for the answer and should it be a yes Ikuyo nod her head appreciatively. "You said it was a beautiful day, it does feel like one." She leaned her head back down in Emi's general direction, a serene smile greeting the girl. "Would you mind describing it to me?"

Emi's joke seemed to be fine, and even Ikuyo used the same terms so it was fine for her to use it. The girl lightly closed her eyes as she took a deep breath for a moment. She didn't know exactly how to react, so maybe calming down would be the best idea. But, the other seemed to take it just fine with Emi's blunders of interaction. Her eyes opened and widened. It wasn't so bad, Emi returned with her own laugh as she gave a slight nod to the blind one. "Don't worry, your secret is safe!" She replied to her joke first before moving onto the next

It was slightly an odd request to Emi, as normally no one would ask those sorts of questions. But, so far Ikuyo had seemed to break the expectations and be a strange individual by standards of... an average person. Emi's thumb went to her chin and lightly rubbed as she thought. "Well...I guess I could try!" She responded with ease as she stepped back for a second and began to slowly look around, her eyes analyzing and pulling them into her mind. She thought about what words would work to describe with. "Well... Besides being warm, those are how the colors are. It's... reds and yellows that shine around us. Just as the sand is yellow. And, and, it just makes someone smile. The water contrasts against it with it's blues in the fountain." Emi went off for a second about the colors but it took a second to hit the girl, forgetting the other's aliment. "Wait... well... It's how it feels. It looks like how it feels. Even how the water feels compared to the sun and heat is how the two differ. It's why this area becomes so nice to be around! Then... at the right time of the day, the glass that holds this fountain together takes that warmth and coolness into one and brings them together is this beautiful light. It's... hard to describe but it hasn't happened yet." Emi's vocabulary was a bit lacking to exactly get it. If the other desired more from the girl in talking about it, hopefully Emi would be able to put it together.

"Thank you." Ikuyo interjected quickly after Emi agreed. Leaning into her shakujo, Emi's words were met with soft jingling chimes. The sounds swelled and bounced off their surroundings, adding something tangible to the younger girl's words. It wasn't the first time that Ikuyo had asked someone a question like this and it surely wouldn't be the last. Each interpretation was different, how they described colors was a particular point of interest. Sand was always yellow she had learned, so yellow became the color of texture and grit. The sky and water was always blue, or so she had been told, so blue became the color of everything that couldn't fit in your hands. She had heard descriptions of reds and greens, purples, whites, and blacks, and each she had tried to connect to something she knew.

Her smile softened into one of appreciation as Emi finished. While it wasn't the most concrete description she had been given it was quite expressive. "That does sound lovely." She said quietly. Her head jerked up suddenly, filling the air with chiming again as her shakjuo shuddered from the movement. "Say, I have the day off from the temple and you did say you were wanting a snack. Would you mind if I accompanied you? I find that opportunities such as these are a shame to waste. Besides if you're waiting for that moment, when the warmth and coolness meet, then it sounds like I should wait for it too. I'd hate to miss something beautiful on account of busywork."

It seemed to a degree that Ikuyo could understand what she was saying about the colors, Emi let out a sigh of relief. But, with the offer after of getting a snack together made a smile enter onto the face of the small girl. Her head raised as she gave a quick nod to the monk, her voice was a bit shaky as she spoke. "U-Uh sure... Um, what sorta things do you like? I-I think that some Kakigori would be good especially in the heat. But, if you want something more rich with Umami flavors, there's a place that does some great grilled unagi. There's also a cart that does some Yakitori nearby, or we can do some watermelon! I-I don't know what you like... s-so there's some options." The confidence that Emi had with food suggestions was much more than what she had outside of the conversation. It only seemed like she could come up with ideas for them, but couldn't decide on the right thing. Afterall, she didn't know Ikuyo personally so it'd be a smart idea on her end to see what the girl likes before.

"I don't mind what we pick, I feel like eating whatever you're in the mood for so don't worry!" The indecisiveness of the girl was apparent as she didn't want to directly make the decision herself, leaving it fully to Ikuyo from here on. The girl lightly brushed her orange hair behind her ear as she adjusted her glasses, her eyes moving back and forth as she looked around after finishing talking for now. Her eyes glazed over each of the places, taking into note where they could potentially start walking as she didn't want to walk off in the wrong direction. Emi had to be careful to not make a fool of herself, even if she wasn't already.

The talk of food reenergized Emi. Ikuyo couldn't help but giggle at how quickly the girl's emotions jumped this way and that. The throes of youth, I remember it well. She thought internally, placing a hang gently between her collarbones, thin fingers barely touching. Closing her eyes the monk sniffed once, slightly embarrassed to be doing so in public. It took her only moments to parse out the scents. As Emi had said there were many options for food around the square, each calling out to her in different ways. The heat of the sun mixed with the mist of the fountain reminded her of eating kakigori and that was Emi's first choice. If it was a hint, it was a subtle one but Ikuyo was well versed in subtlety.

"Kakigori it is then. Since I asked you to join me today, I think this will be on me. Besides," she flashed a smile toward Emi and winked, "age before beauty."

Moving her hand up toward her sugegasa, the space beside Ikuyo quickly became filled with a poofing sound. Her free hand flicked it's fingers in a graceful ballet. The angelic-puppet moved effortlessly to pick up the crate of food she had been tasked to pick up. The intermingling sounds of her shakujo chiming and Kaokuro's clicking made a sort of symphony as she walked. Her steps were small, staccato things but the confidence she radiated with each movement spoke volumes for the effort she had put into becoming independent.

"So, Emi-chan, what made you become a shinobi?"

With the final decision being made, it looked like the two were going to have some Kakigori together. It was a great choice to Emi, as the heat was something that the sweet treat would be a good idea to cool down with. The stand was close enough nearby, as it was out in the open to a degree. You could see within the stand that was set up years ago, kept clean enough for the work that they, but there was some spots of graffiti showing the time that the place has stood. If you looked close enough, you could see the desplay of the ice being shaved down finely with a huge ice cube in the machines grips. There was a small line of people waiting for their turn at the place. Emi walked slightly to the side, walking beside the puppet and human combo. She had known there was people who specialized using these sorts of things, but Emi was not one of them.

But, then a question came of why she became a shinobi. It immediately made Emi tense up in her walk. It wasn't really a question she thought about too much, the girl stuttered in her response, "I-I um, I... I think it's jsut something that my family wanted me to do... I-It was expected especially after my brothers decided to be shinobi too, and they're shinobi and... I just followed suit. But I like it so far." Emi stopped as they finally got to the stand and in line behind a few other people. A child walked by with their mother with their own shaved ice in hand, laughing. Emi let out a sigh, it was simple and enjoyable. But, it wasn't a experience that the girl was used to. Even getting Kakigori with someone else was an unknown experience to Emi, she once again stuttered out, "Why did you? I mean... you're a shinobi too right?"

The immediate change in Emi didn't go unnoticed by the blind monk. Perhaps I should not have been so forward? She pondered to herself. As she was about to rescind her question, Emi went forward with her answer. Ikuyo mulled the response over for a moment before letting a single, knowing sigh past her lips. "I see. Family is a powerful thing, isn't it?" The two stopped as the sound and smell of the kakigori grew close. It was no surprise that there would be a line. The shaved ice was quite popular in the village. There weren't a lot of reprieves from the heat of the desert so the few they did have were cherished. As Ikuyo savored the cooler air around the stand, Emi turned her question back onto the monk.

"Well," she began, pursing her lips, "to be honest it was out of spite." She laughed lightly, covering her mouth with only the tips of her fingers. "Does that sound childish? I suppose it is." She tilted her head upward just the slightest amount. "I was born without sight and my parents treated me as though I was entirely incapable of anything. It was mildly infuriating. I was okay with never having sight, but never having independence was unacceptable so I worked very hard. I was lucky to be born with an aptitude for chakra, I am quite thankful for it." She twirled her hand, fingers having stilled for just a moment. "My parents were skeptical at first as were the neighborhood children. If I couldn't see how could I make use of my talents? So, with the help of my hard work and faith, I found new ways to see. Sound, smell, the shifting of the sand beneath my feet, I found my sight in everything around me. To put it shortly, I became a shinobi because no one believed I could." She looked in Emi's general direction, though much closer to her eyes than she had previously.

"I enjoy defying expectations, don't you?"

"Well that's more of a reason than I could ever come up with... I h-hope I eventually have a better reason like that," Emi nervously responded, as it seemed her own response was down the same alley but took a right turn away from what Ikuyo. If with age came some wisdom or reasons for getting your own reasons like that, Emi would just want to grow up as fast as possible now. The woman before her just emanated wisdom of her own, and Emi could respect that. The line started to dwindle down slightly as more people passed with their cones. It wasn't a long process to get the Kakigori together in the stand, but people were there in groups of two or more for the most part. The two were just there as the line became more shuffled as people left the front and joined the back at an even rate.

"But, your parents sound like c-complete jerks if they d-didn't want you to do what you wanted like that... I'm happy you're proving them wrong!" The was some excitement behind the stutter that was ever present within what Emi did say. "It's great what you are d-doing!" It may have lessened some compared to before with her nervousness about saying the wrong thing. But, as she said that there was a voice that spoke to the pair. "Next up!" Emi's ears perked up, as it seemed to finally be their turn and gave a nod as she approached closer to the stand and gave out her order, "One watermelon Kakigori, and what do you want, Ikuyo-san?"

Choosing to stay quiet under Emi's nervous words of encouragement, Ikuyo stepped in unison with the girl when it was their turn to order. "I'm partial to strawberry myself so I think that's just what I'll have. One strawberry Kakigori, please." There was the sound of ice being shaved, the server in front of them shuffling around their stall, and the general sound of the busy plaza. Ikuyo leaned her shakujo against her shoulder and paused to make sure it wasn't going to fall as she moved. Once she was happily certain that it wasn't going to fall, her free hand moved to a pouch around her neck. She opened the top of it and placed her first two fingers in, their movements extremely precise. After just a few moments she produced the exact amount of money needed to cover their treats and placed it gently on the counter. Having received their treats, Ikuyo had a feeling that Emi would be restless on what to do next. She smiled to herself over the girl's anxious nature. "Do you really think that?" She asked suddenly after her first bite of the Kakigori.

"Why don't we sit and enjoy this?" Without letting Emi answer the question, the monk made her way to a nearby bench that had just opened up. Taking a seat it was apparent that posture meant a lot to the woman. "Our reasons, that is. I don't, not at all. Yours, mine, there is no better or worse. We do what we must, that's what I think. I had to have freedom." She paused and turned her head downward. "I don't believe my parents are jerks, just afraid. Being afraid is normal, it's human. I'm afraid all the time." She stopped to take another bite of her Kakigori, face lighting up. "It's good. How is yours?" She waited for Emi's response before returning to her previous train of thought. "I think what makes us shinobi, the force that draws us to it, that makes it a must is being able to face our fears and move forward. It is because we are afraid and know that others are afraid as well. Being a shinobi is being strong enough to take your fear, and the fears of everyone in the village, and bearing it without complaint." She looked up warmly, a smile playing at the edges of her lips as she gently closed her eyes.

"I think what you're doing is great, too."

With their Kakigori in their hands, the scene was already setting itself for the two. It was coming together to be better than Emi's nervousness, because now in hand was something to eat and what she truly wanted for the day. Her mouth immediately went towards the thing, ignoring to even pick up two spoons for them. The sweet shaved ice melted within her mouth almost immediately. It was shaved so finely that it weighed almost nothing. Her eyes lit up in enjoyment as her head turned up towards Ikuyo asked the girl a question about her opinion. The girl's head pulled back from her watermelon treat as she nodded to the woman, "Yeah! I mean... W-Why wouldn't I?"

It seemed a bit strange that Ikuyo would question why, but Emi did completely make her own decisions seem like nothing compared to the other. Maybe, it was her own small insecurities showing through to her responses. The girl gave a slight nod into response to sitting and enjoying their treats. Emi took her seat next to Ikuyo on the bench unlike her posture, Emi's knees quickly came up onto the bench. Her posture completely showed how closed in she was, with her hands holding the Kakigori safely. Emi was about to take a bite until Ikuyo had spoke to her again. Her head turned as one of her legs slowly dropped to the ground, barely scarping against it. "I... guess I don't have that g-great of a r-reason to continue except having fun doing the sorts of things t-that shinobi do, nor a reason besides it being what they wanted in the first place so..." Emi pulled the Kakogori closed to her mouth as she pulled out one of the spoons that she took and tossed one to Ikuyo too. She took a spoonful to her mouth and took another bite.

"I mean... I'm just young right? This is what we're supposed to do." Emi let out a sigh as her other leg dropped to hanging, and her back straightened up some. "It... is what felt right to do. But, yeah the Kakigori is delicious."

Opening her eyes, Ikuyo couldn't help but frown. She turned toward Emi and tilted her head. "Are you saying I'm old?" Her face went stark and expressionless as she held almost stock still. Moments later she couldn't help but laugh, hand wrapping around her stomach as she softly rocked. "I'm sorry, that was rude of me. You should have seen your face though." She laughed a little harder at her second joke piling onto the first. She let the laughter radiate through her before taking a deep breath and composing herself as she took Emi's offered spoon. She held her bowl with a finger hovering over the treat. The colder temperature allowing her to judge how tall the ice was. She took a spoonful of the ice and moved it with practice into her mouth.

"Emi-chan, would you be willing to help me out with something? I feel bad for asking so much of you as we've just met but if you have time I would be very appreciative." Her finger swirled in the air with Kaoruko meeting the movement with a ticking wooden sound. "Kaoruko would be thankful as well and I'm sure you wouldn't want to hurt her feelings?" She teased the girl, hoping that if she kept at it the nervousness would melt away like the ice they were eating.

"Tha-That's not-!" Emi's face instantly went red with embarrassment, it seemed even getting somewhat comfortable was bad for her. But, it seemed that Ikuyo had only been making a joke out of what the girl had been saying, only interrupting what she was saying in seconds with laughter. The girl quickly went into a slouch again with her back slowly lowering as her feet touched completely onto the ground. A loud sigh came from her has the Kakogori began to rest on her stomach, her knees were now bent and bouncing as she was just way too embarrassed to talk about things for a moment. "I-It's fine, I... was just scared for a second that I upset you." Emi responded as her knees still continued to move in an up and down motion.

But, as Ikuyo had continued to speak to the girl, her eyes slowly rised to meet hers even if they were looking off into other directions. Even if posture wasn't taught to Emi, eye contact was something important that was taught. It seemed that she had wanted her to do something for her. Emi thought for a second, taking another spoonful of the Kakigori to her mouth and let it melt within her mouth. The girl pulled out the spoon and gave a quick response, "Sure, wouldn't hurt to help you out at all!" A small smile formed on the face of the girl as she listened to whatever request would come next.

Ikuyo sighed in relief. "That is wonderful to hear. You see I was thinking of making Kaoruko a friend. She must be awfully lonely with only myself as company. It would be nice to have some company of my own as I do so. I'm not sure if you'll find it interesting, in fact I'm not entirely positive I find it interesting." She chuckled only the smallest amount. "We can chat while I work and it'll be over before we know it." She smiled as that mechanical way of moving brought another spoonful of shaved ice to her lips. She enjoyed the sensation of the cold temperature tantalizingly close to her skin before allowing herself to eat. Strawberry was red she had been told. She had always wondered about red more than the other colors. Too many things were red, good and bad.

"You must think I'm awfully rude. I've been asking you favors and questions since I first heard your voice." She blushed lightly. "Feel free to return the favor. That offer is for more than today. If you ever wish to talk or require something you can always find me at the temple. If that doesn't work just yell really loud, I'll probably hear it." She winked at her new friend and worked to finish her Kakigori.

"I see! I mean... I've never done such a thing so it'll be fun to see how it is done! Do you like... make an outline for everything? Do you create the image in your head or how do you go about the process?" Emi started to eat her Kakigori faster after gave her response, a lot of questions to distract her so she could finish it as fast as possible. It interested Emi in the sorta process that Ikuyo would take as she was a blind shinobi. It was extremely obvious that Ikuyo had used her other senses to see people, but making an entire puppet was a different process entirely.

Emi had ended up going to fast with eating her Kakigori, as her head began to quickly hurt. A brain freeze was coming on for the young girl as she touched the side of her head and lightly pushed on it. "Too fast, too fast." She mumbled to herself as she took a deep breath and began to shake her head. But, with the speed she ate, the girl ended up finishing the shaved ice fast enough to be able to turn her head and ask the woman a question. "Where will we be going to to make it?"

It took a monumental effort to refrain from reminding Emi of her disability. She wasn't able to create images in her head as the girl had guessed. She didn't mind though. As hard as it was for her to imagine a life with sight it was just as hard for Emi to imagine one without.

She fixed her face into one of concentration and moved her hand outward, finger outstretched. In the air before her she traced something as she spoke. "An outline, yes that's close enough I suppose." Her hand arced through the air. "I base it off of myself, it's what I know." As she drew some imaginary painting in the air, Kaoruko moved in front of her easel. "Kaoruko is slightly shorter than I am but-" She placed her empty bowl on the bench and stood beside the puppet. Kaoruko's wings folded back as Ikuyo pinched the back of her clothing taut against her skin. With the two standing side-by-side for comparison it was clear that the dimensions of Kaoruko were based off of Ikuyo's. She stood that way for just a moment before a sharp blush ran across her cheeks. Clearing her throat she let her clothing go slack again as she did her best to ignore the idea of wandering eyes.

"This puppet will be the same, I think; though not the wings. They weren't my idea. One of the younger monks thought it would make her look cool so I obliged. Truthfully they're quite cumbersome." She moved to pick up her bowl and took her small steps toward the nearest bin. "Where indeed, a good question as always, Emi-chan." She hmm'd to herself as she disposed of her trash before her face lit up with an idea. "How about the Training Grounds? Once I make her I will naturally want to her practice with her. That," her hand rubbed her stomach, "and I should really work off that Kakigori."

It seemed like Emi couldn't understand, even if she tried. It was a different world than the one she lived in but she tried her best in her own ways. She was still young, and there was a lot of time to learn. Even talking to Ikuyo about these sorts of things taught Emi a thing or two, including posture. Emi slowly got up from her slouched postition, taking the cup that was left from the Kakigori off her chest as she placed her hands on her hips. "Hmm... How about I paint it for you then? You tell me whatever co-color you want where based o-on how you're fer-feeling about it! I... think that's the most I can really do. I-I'm not that good at mah-making things or have ever worked on a puppet before so I don't know how the pr-process goes. So I guess I get to learn now!" Emi changed her direction to be facing towards Ikuyo and Kaoruko, a smile on her nervous face. If she wasn't sweating already due to the heat, there would be sweat from her nervousness from even messing up that sort of activity.

I... think I know how to paint still. I haven't done it in years but I think I know how it goes. Hopefully... it doesn't get too complicated. The girl gave a nod as she continued, "I'll lead the way! Unless you want to lead the way then you lead the way!" Emi started walking off into a direction, looking back towards Ikuyo and her puppet to wait to see where to head to if she changed where they went. Ikuyo is so talented... Does that come with age too? Or was she born with it the whole time? Along the way she tossed the cup towards a trashcan, Emi was ready!

"Oh that would be very helpful. I hear Kaoruko is painted in pearls and golds. The monks thought it fit her." For just the briefest of moments there was a sadness in the woman's voice. Despite all she had done in order to navigate the world around her there were still some things she'd never be able to see. Kaoruko was a close companion and the knowledge of never really getting to know what the puppet appeared like to others was offputting. "I'm not good with colors but the way you described them earlier leads me to believe that you are. How about this then; I'll build it and you can paint it however you want, how does that sound?" She smiled warmly as her fingers moved gently forcing the puppet to pick up the crate of rice she still would need to get back to the temple after this.

No matter what she attempted, Emi's nervousness never diminished. It was slightly impressive to be that resolute in your feelings; if only that feeling was a little more positive. It reminded her of Ume and their afternoon in the alcove. She wondered how the young girl was doing and if she and Emi had the pleasure of meeting yet. "Lead the way. I have a feeling you walk a little faster than I do anyway."
