And away they went. Zenitsu and Kyon Kyon left the castle where their compatriots all gathered for their missions. The young red-eyed teen had his hands in his pockets as per usual, and casually stepped forward along the dirt paven road. "It's been awhile since I've journeyed out without one of the senior members following me and keeping watch. It's nice to get a little freedom for a change. Wouldn't you agree, Two?"

Zenitsu turned to his side with a small smile, facing the slightly younger boy as he spoke. The tone of his voice was soft, yet held a distinct fatigue. He had journeyed a fair ways to get to the meeting, and here he was traveling on foot yet again. It could all be a bit exhausting sometimes, working for a strange cult.

"I wonder if there's any pretty girls in Kirigakure. Oh, what kind of food do they eat? I'll bet since it's in the Land of Water they've got plenty of fish!"

Zenitsu was a bit star-eyed, and looked ahead along the dirt road which stretched out for miles of nothingness. His gaze was distant, looking out ahead as his imagination began to stretch much like the infinity that the dirt road seemed to embody.

Instead of going on the super important mission with Three, some things had happened which had lead to Kyo being sent to infiltrate Kirigakure with Thirteen, or Zenitsu as he supposed he should call him. They were going to pretend to be brothers, which was going to be interesting, to say the least. He already couldn't tell how he felt about this whole mission. Zenitsu was already trying to do the whole get to know you thing and they weren't even there yet. Kyo supposed he was a nice person, and he was certainly friendly and gave off a warm sort of aura. Maybe it wouldn't be such a bad thing spending so much time with him. At the very least, it gave them a chance to really try and settle somewhere rather than being on the move all the time. That would be a new experience for Kyo.

As they were walking, Zenitsu tried to make pleasant conversation in his way. Kyo shoved his hands into his pockets and kicked a rock. "Yeah, yeah, I guess. I mean I understand the old man's reasoning stuff, but, ugh." He flashed his eyes to Zenitsu and gave a grin. "Not anything against you. It just makes my skin crawl that we have to pretend to be shinobi and all that. Isn't that what we're trying to like, dismantle? Again I get it but, it just seems... gross." He couldn't think of better words for it but gave a visible shudder. "It feels more like we're being stuck in a cage for other's amusement than for freedom. Even if we had to do what the old man said for so long, that felt more like freedom than... this."

He kicked another rock as they walked. Zenitsu would continue on the cheery musings, looking a little starry eyed over what it would happen in Kirigakure. Kyo sniffed in an amused manner, not quite a chuckle but close enough. "Maybe. It's been a while since I've had some good seafood. Mmmm, hey when we get there and get settled in, can we hit up a sushi bar? And just indulge..." he was now also lost in daydreams of the delicious, fresh caught sushi they might encounter.

[OOC: TY for remembering my SA because I deadass forgot to mention it]

As the two calmly strolled through the dirt road, hoping to reach the coast where they could find a boat to Kirigakure, Zenitsu did his best to fill the air of the journey with conversation. He didn't like silence. He didn't like being left alone to his own thoughts for too long, where he'd be forced to avoid thinking of unpleasantries. He wanted to avoid letting his mind through the doors of a rusty iron cell.

He chose to look at the positives of their journey to Kirigakure, rather than stew in the negatives. He supposed it was kind of funny though. He took a second to glance at Two every now and again, and couldn't help but take note of his posture mirroring his own. Perhaps this gambit of pretending to be brothers wouldn't be so hard? They already had body language synced up. Though maybe it was more common than he gave them credit for. He wasn't entirely sure.

When Two voiced his opinion on the matter, Zenitsu was initially silent. He had to admit that he empathized with Two's reluctance. It was one of the very things that he was trying to avoid thinking about.

"The safest place for you is right in front of everyone's noses. Shinobi are so concerned with the threats from outside, that they rarely worry themselves with the ones inside," Zenitsu replied, quoting one of the things that Three had told him when discussing this mission. It was one of the things that had stuck with them in their conversation.

Zenitsu sighed.

"As long as we're careful, then infiltrating Kirigakure is the best thing for us right now. At least that's what the Boss seems to think, though I have to agree. Of course, you'll have to downplay your power a little bit to avoid catching too many glances. But if we settle in then we're giving time for the others to accomplish their own missions."

Zenitsu's hand exited his pocket and curled up into a tight fist, as he gritted his teeth.

"I get how you feel though. I feel the same way. I don't even like fighting, but I'll do what I have too to make sure we succeed. And if we do, then everyone everywhere will have freedom. No more cages. For any of us."

He stopped short in his tracks and extended his glove, curled into a tight fist, to Two. Hopefully Two understood what fist bumping was.

"If it helps, then think of it like this. Deep down we're not shinobi. We're actors, actors who are giving the performance of a lifetime. For as long as it takes."

When that resolved, he would return back to that soft smile of before. And keep on walking. The subject would return back to seafood. "We'll eat all the damn fish in Kirigakure we can find. We'll make the most of our journey, I can promise you that."

Kyo took the moment to actually ponder what Zenitsu was saying. Other's words or advice weren't something Kyo gave weight to a lot, especially if it wasn't Three or Seven or the snake itself, but something about Zen was calming and welcoming enough. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad hanging around this guy after all. He seemed to have some tidbits of wisdom that were effective at calming an oncoming Kyo tantrum. It made sense to Kyo that they should hide in plain sight. Especially what had happened in the other villages currently, some of the villages were probably a little more empathetic to immigrants at the moment. They might be thinking some would have an agenda, but both Zen and Kyo were skilled enough at manipulation and lying that they would easily be able to slip in. Zen's words were making Kyo a little more excited for this mission, when originally he had been super annoyed that he had to go on this journey.

"A little time in the cage will help us break others out, I guess," he said, in a rare moment of childish wisdom. He kind of chuckled at Zen's request for a fist bump and would give a fist bump to his faux brother. He nodded and made a thoughtful noise at his suggestion that they were actors. "Yeah, I dunno how good my acting skills are though. I'll do my best, but, I swear, these shinobi better not piss me off," he said, giving a frustrated scratch to his head. He didn't want to have to ask for help to contain that or even admit to himself that he might need it, so hopefully Zen would be ready and willing for that. He brightened up and grinned at the thought of suhi. "Mmmm, I'm so excited for the food." He was practically salivating at this point thinking about it. "So, what is our story we're going for?"

Despite not really having much conversation time prior to this, given Three's protective nature regarding Two, Zenitsu felt a kinship with the boy that made him empathetic to his situation. Truthfully he was tempted to ignore Three's plans and just do as he liked traveling around Two as wanderers, but he knew that the plan was the safest course. And safety triumphed anything else.

Two's comment made Zenitsu smile. Thirteen was glad that he seemed to understand. "Correct."
Image
The two bumped knuckles, the light collision making a small bang sound as they showed their solidarity. When he expressed some concern about his abilities to act, Zenitsu gave a light chuckle. "In my opinion the best way to lie is tell only the truth. Lies of omission are easier to fib than lies of distortion. We'll tell them some of our truth, and tell it in a way that will hopefully keep them from poking us further. Given a major village just imploded, they may not have enough energy and thought to examine us thoroughly."

As the two kept walking Zenitsu chuckled again. "Like I said try to keep your power contained. If you come off as too strong then they'll look at you closer. Your only advantage is that shinobi your age are rarely so immensely skilled. They won't even know what they're looking at if you conceal yourself, but rather put their attention on me because I'm the older one. If they find out your stronger than me we might have a harder time telling our story."

The thought of future culinary delights seemed to be the only thing keeping them distracted from the reality of their situation. Hopefully hiding as refugees inside of Kirigakure wouldn't be as difficult as he hypothesized.

"I'll do most of the talking unless they separate us, but basically I'm going to tell them my past and then explain Kumogakure's situation to them. 'Kumogakure has fallen, so instead we've come to the Hidden Mist for shelter.' We'll offer them our services in exchange for fair compensation and from there enter the village.

If they split us up for separate questioning though, well I can't tell you how to lie by omission since I don't know your actual truth myself. Just obviously omit the stuff regarding Three and anything else you figure could endanger you, me, and everyone we know. And obviously we should be giving them our real names to further solidify our identities. If they think we're lying about something as basic as that they'll suspect everything we say is false and keep more surveillance on us than we'd like.

The only real 'lie' here is the fib that we're brothers. But even that is only a lie depending on your point of view."


And by this point they had reached their destination, where they would be able to find passage towards a boat, that would head towards the Land of Water....
