Eyes scanned the area as Ahri moved away to get the water into the small boxes. Ame knelt next to a particularly flat rock about the size of her hand, wrist to middle fingertip, hefting it and tossing the stone a couple times. It would do. She moved about, collecting her kunai and Ahri's thrown shuriken, dropping the knives into their holsters and piling the shuriken near their small clearing. A second, somewhat smaller rock was found, but it was fine so long as it was flat. As the blue haired girl approached her once more, Ameya leaned over, looking into the boxes where the water just covered the noodles. "Yeah, that's good. Go ahead and set one on each of these rocks," she replied, dropping gracefully into a kneel and setting a stone in front of each of them. The Suna-nin waited patiently while Ahri did as she asked, then leaned forward just a bit.
"There's a skill that you can practice called chakra flow. This involves infusing or sheathing an item - or even your own body - in your chakra. This can enhance all kinds of things, but I've found the most useful application is with Katon. You can cook on the road," she stated, crinkling her nose in amusement. Then she demonstrated. "This does not take much chakra, but if you feel like you can't, stop immediately and I can help. Let me show you," she stated, leaning down and touching the rock closest to her. "Feel your chakra in your stomach, spiraling out and moving as though you're going to climb a tree or walk on water, but tinge it with your Katon chakra. Then let it transfer from your fingers to the stone. Try and feel it like an extension of yourself, as though your chakra can just flow through and surround it," Ame continued, her rock lighting up with a flickering orange glow, and the water in her cup beginning to bubble.
