Holding tight a worn and folded piece of paper, Mika marched through the streets. Her head snapped this way and that, eyeing everything that came up as even the smallest tint of red. After all of her hard work the small woman had finally been promoted to the rank of Jounin, a goal she had set for herself since she first stepped into the Academy years ago. Her goal held a reward, one that she had spent countless nights working on. Today, hopefully, she would get her gauntlets; the sign that she was a hero after all.

The sun was bright and the air warm, a perfect day some would say. She found it fitting as if she had been able to draw it up herself. There were more than a few craftsman in the village she knew, but there could be no one else to create her new fists other than the Tsuchikage. His work was known the village over and over in other villages as well. To have someone like him craft her weapons, she knew would add impact. Mika Fujiwara, with her gifts from the Tsuchikage himself, what a perfect example of a hero.

"But where is he? I checked the office and they said he was out but had no idea where. If I were the Tsuchikage where would I be?" Truthfully she had no idea where she'd be. She could see herself hanging out with rocks all the way to scolding some Academy kids. There were too many options and only one of her. This called for something extreme, something out of the ordinary. This called for dango.

There was only one realistic place to go for dango and Mika pushed aside the cloth doorway in no time. "Yasu-kun, how are you? The usual please." She said with a smile and a short bow. Rising up from the bow her eyes deceived her, a flash of red enjoying the same sweets she had been coming for. Jaw dropped, eyes popped, and a finger shot forward

"I found you after all this time, Tsuchikaga-sama!"

As tended to be his tradition Shinren found himself at his favorite dango shop after training with Kaijin for the day, it had certainly been a long one coupled with the back-to-back meetings and he’d earned a treat-yo-self. After chomping down on the first bite a new customer entered the reputable stand and ordered with the familiarity of a regular such as himself. Before they took a seat the customer exclaimed their excitement to finding the Tsuchikage, usually a safe bet when checking in to the dango shop at this time. Turning to his side Shinren was greeted with the sight of the newest Jōnin who he had promoted recently, putting down his dango stick he welcomed her with a warm smile. “Mika-san, good to see you! I hadn’t realized you were a regular here too, how have we not run into each other before here? What can I do for you?”

Relief burst in her chest as she finally found the man she had been seeking all over for. He asked how they had never ran into one another, both appearing to be frequent visitors to the establishment. "Well, if you tend to come around this time that would make sense. I only come in the mornings usually. Nothing like some sweets to wake you up in the morning!" She struck a pose consisting of an arm across her chest and the other pointed straight into the air. Swinging her arm across her chest she placed the worn and tattered piece of paper in front of the Tsuchikage. "That," she said, pointing at the paper, "is why I need your help."

Carefully the petite woman smoothed out the wrinkles of the paper. Depicted on it were years of progress toward her final design. There were portions of the paper unreadable from how many times whatever had been written there was erased. Her eyes sparkled with excitement as she showed off the blueprints she had worked so long and hard for. "They're gauntlets. I've wanted them ever since I was an Academy Student. I think, now, I'm ready for them. The only problem is I don't know how to make them myself. So I was kind of hoping that, you know, with you being the best crafter in the village..." The excitement in her eyes only grew as she spoke, now turning the full force of them onto the Tsuchikage.

"So, will you help me?!"

The first answer was of little surprise, it was quite the rare day that Shinren stopped at the dango shop before heading into the office. What came next truly sparked his interest, it had been quite some time since he was presented with a schematic that so clearly had the heart and soul of the client in it. Once the old paper was smoothed out he took a look at it, smiling at the worn edges and many times the design had been whittled down into the product he was now looking at. “Why, I can think of no better reward for your recent promotion than this set of gauntlets you’ve been toiling over. Consider it my gift to you, the creation of these should be quite simple. In fact, once we are done with our food I can head over and hammer these out in no time. Would you care to accompany me, if you are not too busy?”

Suspense soaked into her very soul as she watched Shinren study the schematic. Would he find the idea silly? Would he refuse to do it? What would she do if he did? Those gauntlets had been her goal for the better part of a decade and to have them denied by the leader of the village... Her head began to spin at all the possibilities until finally, though it had only been a few seconds really, the Tsuchikage spoke. Not only did he speak, he agreed to make the gauntlets!

"Oh my gosh! I can't tell you how much that means to me! It means more than four, at the very least." She hopped backward, slamming her hand into her other arm's raised bicep as she flexed out of pure happiness. The grin she wore threatened to spill her teeth onto the floor and she snickered wildly. While she struggled to contain herself, she took a seat next to her boss.

"Oh yeah, after we eat. I actually totally forgot I ordered, thanks for the reminder." Over seven years of waiting for this moment, seven years of weight lifted off her shoulders. She felt light, lighter than usual, and surprisingly quite hungry. "I'd forget my fists if they weren't attached." She said jokingly though with an edge of "I might actually forget them" to her voice.

It didn't take long for Yasu to bring her order. The three dumplings were each three times the size of a normal order. "Yasu-kun, I don't know how you do it." She said happily, picking up the stick and biting into the dango like one would corn on the cob.

Too few of his higher-up shinobi had a proper sense of humor, Shinren was glad to see that the young Jōnin’s was well intact. Now that Mika had her food in front of her Shinren took another bite out of green tea flavored dumpling before him, not exactly his favorite blend of tea but simply couldn’t be beaten in desserts. “Mmmmm, there really isn’t anything better than a green tea dango. So Mika-san, how has Jōnin life been treating you? Is it everything you dreamt it to be since your days in the academy?”

Pulling away from her treat, glaze staining each of her cheeks. "Ef ben seeew hgret!" Her mouth full, the words came out jumbled and incoherent. Her eyes widened as she smiled the best she could before quickly chewing and swallowing. "I meant to say it's been great! Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity. I will do my best to punch really hard. I don't like green tea." Wiping away the glaze on the back of her hand, Mika eyed the substance as she pulled away. She sniffed it once before quickly darting her tongue out to lick it. Screwing up her face the newly appointed Jounin stuck her tongue out. "It's not as good without the dumpling."

Almost violently she twisted her body to face Shinren. "I spent all day looking for you, what did you do with your day? Tell me all about it. I hope it was exciting. I bet it was. You're the Tsuchikage after all, how could any day be boring?"

Visibly distraught from the news on Mika’s opinion on green tea he couldn’t help but let out a small protest. “Oh, but surely you enjoy green tea in a cup, no? Or at least some form of heavenly tea, yes, yes, that must be it.” After what he could only hope to be a satisfactory answer Shinren commended her for finishing her day-long quest on finding him. “Yes, haha, today was quite the busy one for me. Thankfully we have the same taste in sweets, if not a difference in opinion on what the best of that may be.” Taking another bite out of the dango stick he finished off the best of the crop, leaving strawberry for last.

“My duties were not too different than most days; meetings and paperwork. Though I was able to fit in a training session with one of our new genin. Have you begun to think about teaching yourself?”

"Hmm, do I like green tea in a cup? I suppose it looks more natural there. Oh and you can make it ripple by smacking the table, I enjoy that. Does that count? I normally drink it with honey when I'm sick but other than that I can't say I'm much of a tea drinker. I like coffee more. Really gets the blood flowing!" She pumped her fist, only narrowly avoiding punching the table as she did so. Her eyes narrowed as she moved her hands slowly back down, watching for the edge she had nearly decimated just seconds prior.

Shinren told her of his day, his usual duties and even his extracurricular ones. She screwed her face up in concentration. "I've never really thought about it. I've been so fixated on those gauntlets as my reward for hitting Jounin that I never really gave much thought about what comes after them. I don't know if I would be a good teacher though. I only really know how to do one thing, maybe two. I think it'd be fun though! I'm just... not sure if I'd be good at it. What if my students don't like me? What if I don't teach them enough? It makes my head hurt just thinking about it."

A sigh of relief escaped Shinren as he was assured that Mika at the very least tolerated tea any amount of the time. While coffee was never something he could get into, he appreciated the aroma almost to the point of wanting to get incense that had a similar smell. “I would say it most certainly counts, anyone who drinks tea at all is alright in my book.” He ended the reply with a playful wink, happy to have a conversation with a Jounin that had levity to it.

It seemed that the larger part of what came with her new position hadn’t been thought of too much, which wasn’t a huge surprise from her one-track mind. The fear of rejection was a reasonable concern for those that hadn’t planned on the track of being a teacher, though it was a trial that all Jounin must weather at some point or another. “Oh nonsense, I’m sure you would find a way to win them over. Especially once you show off your skills with the gloves I’ll be making for you. What genin wouldn’t want to be a part of that team?” With that Shinren finished off the last of his dango and stood up after paying, looking to Mika for the next step in her quest of ballin’ gauntlets. “So Mika-san, shall we?”

Grinning ear to ear, Mika silently pat herself on the back for having such refined tastes. "And anyone who enjoys dango is alright in mine!" She said happily and returning a scuffed wink of her own.

As Shinren went on about teaching she took the momentary shift in speakers to finish her own snack. Her eyes widened as he spoke, the truth and wisdom to his words blowing her mind. "You're so right! No wonder they made you the Tsuchikage." She jumped up from the table and moved to pay for her meal shortly after Shinren made his move. Then, after years and years of work, preparation, and dreaming, he siad the words she had been waiting for. A surge of chakra rippled through her legs as she hopped high into the air, nearly touching the ceiling as she did so.

"I HAVE NEVER, EVER BEEN SO READY!" Grabbing the design from the table the small Jounin jetted through the doors of the shop, leaving the crafter of her gauntlets behind in her excitement.

A smile spread across Shinren’s face as his advice landed well with the apprehensive Jounin, eager to get started on the piece of work she had presented him with. “Excellent, I have to admit I’m quite excited to get to work on what you’ve brought me Mika-san. To the Kanaduchi Clan grounds we go!” With Mika in tow the two went off to his home, the forge would be happy to see its primary user return after being absent for so long. “Truth be told it’s been a while since I’ve set foot in here, I haven’t had the time to use it much in these past fifteen years, haha.”

Laying the blueprints out on a large table Shinren began gathering the tools necessary to create the gauntlets, starting with a wooden mold that he created out of his own chakra after some careful revisiting of the gauntlet’s dimensions. Then it came time to start the fire within the heart of the forge, lighting the coals within and then working the bellows to get the heat up to a proper temperature. Only once the coals were a piping red hot would he take the lump of steel required and place it within a pouring basin to start the melting process. While he waited Shinren looked to Mika, curious if she had any previous knowledge of what he was doing. “So Mika-san, is this your first time in a forge?”

Excitement bubbled in the Jounin's chest as she and the Tsuchikage made way for the Kanaduchi Clan district. Mika had visited the grounds more than a few times in order to admire the smiths that worked there. Her eyes would always grow to the size of saucers as she watched them mold metal and craft steel knowing that one day she would have something of her own made by them. To think that the crafter of her gauntlets would be the Tsuchikage himself however, was something she had never even thought of. She had assumed in her search for Shinren that upon finding him he would send her to a kinsmen, not take the job himself.

Shinren spoke of his lack of practice over the past years and she grinned in response. "Don't worry, I've never used one in my life so you have me beat at least!"

She watched the man work in quiet amazement. His movements were precise and practiced, motions that she imagined he had practiced more times than she had thrown punches. "It's not!" She began as he broke away from his work to ask her a question. "I visited a lot of times in order to see how it was done. I figured I might as well know as much as I could about the process before it finally happened. Luck favors the prepared, y'know?"
