It was refreshing to see Kanbe and Ty Lee quipping back and forth with each other. Apparently, Ayane had been through already, and was waiting on ahead. Arid nodded, and looked at her teammates for a moment.

"Well, if we've got the greenlight, I'll be on my way." Arid spoke. She first looked at Kanbe, giving him a reassuring smile. "Keep our village safe, Lord Kazekage." She joked, chuckling at the notion of referring to him as Kazekage. Even if it was temporary, it was fun to poke at him, knowing he didn't want that title. Next, she looked at Ty Lee, giving her a similar, playful smile. "Keep up the good work, little soldier."

With nothing more than a quick grab, Arid pulled the two into a group hug. After a few moments, she released, and pivoted on her heel to begin heading off towards the direction Kanbe pointed earlier. She turned back, though, and waved a final goodbye to her teammates.

Screwing up her face, Ty Lee scoffed and turned her head from the woman telling her to "keep having fun". "Don't tell me how to live my life." She joked, her intonation doing it's best to convey the utter lack of seriousness to her words. Her attention turned to Arid after she wanted to give some friendly advice as well. "That goes for you too, Lassy." Sticking out her tongue, she tilted her head a bit and smiled. "Have fun in the leaf, take pictures or something for me. I do enjoy the aesthetics of that place, it's a lot less sandy."

Turning back to Kanbe, the girl's face softened. As much as the night had been awful this moment was at least nice. All those years ago she would have never thought the guy would say something so kind to her. It was a sign that things were changing and for the better. That night was just a hiccup but she'd do her best to not let it ruin the rest of eternity she had sitting in front of her.

"Alright leader boi, you gave out orders to everyone but us. What are we doing for the betterment of the village?"

There it was again: Lord Kazekage. Kanbe quickly put his hands up in front of his chest, crossing them back and forth to ward off the statement."W-wait, I'm not--" an exasperated sigh left Kanbe's lips as he made the decision to give up. "Ahh, forget it." Despite his protests, a grin pulled up across his face, enough to show that he didn't mind Arid's joke. The man allowed himself to be pulled in close to the other two original members of Team 420, placing one hand against each of their backs as he leaned in. He allowed a silence to overtake the moment, the warmth of their embrace conveying all that needed to be said. As Arid pulled away, Kanbe spoke to her one more time. "Stay safe, Arid." No one could say what might await her as she made the voyage into the Land of Fire.

With her departure, the crowd had been knocked down to a pair. Kanbe and Ty Lee were what remained, with the latter questioning what their role would be in the aftermath of the attacks. The Hokori hesitated in answering immediately, caught off-guard by the question. To be honest, he hadn't planned to designate Ty Lee a task. When he had drafted a list of ideas in his head, he had presumed that Ty Lee would still be torn up about the day's events. It was unclear what Arid had said to spur the immortal on, but whatever it was had done the trick for the time being.

"Ty Lee, are you ... How are you doing?" Kanbe asked, his voice showing more concern than it normally did when it came to the Jashinist. "You've been through a lot today. I wasn't sure whether you were okay to continue or if you needed a break." Out in the open, with so much to do, the man wasn't expecting his teammate to spill her heart out right then and there, but he still wanted to check in with her.

Kisora scratched the back of her head with the hand she extended out to Christina as she waited long enough to go off, slowly letting out a sigh as it didn't seem to go too well. But, the woman let out a chuckle right after as Ty Lee seemed to like her small tease towards her. The woman nodded her head, "Well, I can't keep sticking around right now." She started to already begin to walk off, small jingling noises coming from her swords and sake bottle colliding as she walked away. Her hand waved back towards the two talking, "Let me know if you need anything else, alright! I'll get started on giving out the food but it will probably be done quick." The woman shouted calmly back as her hand slowly lowered towards her side, but she was still smiling as she was heading towards the emergency supply rooms that Kanbe was talking about.

Surprise, and a little bit of heartwarming touch, came to the Jashinista's eyes. She couldn't say she was absolutely used to Kanbe being so nice to her but it wasn't something entirely new. As much of a change for their relationship as it was, she still had some adjustments to make involving her stance on the swordsman. She shook her head and laughed. It wasn't hollow but it lacked a certain something.

"Nah, I'm good to go. If I stop for a break now who knows how long I'll be. I'd rather just keep going and truck on through all of this. Besides, I'm sure I have time to get over it y'know?" The mention of time noticeably shifted her tone and posture. She did her best to stay strong and up to snuff, but the idea of spending forever thinking of this night was one that she couldn't quite shake. She smiled softly and tilted her head, lips pouting.

"And what about you Mr. Strongman? How are you doing? Uncle Sajin almost cleaned your clock. Not to mention the whole, Shingen-is-alive-but-a-traitor thing. I'm sure you have some thoughts about that too, right?"

It wasn't entirely obvious, but there were subtle shifts in the way she spoke and the way that she positioned herself that indicated that things weren't quite as settled as her speech made it seem. In truth, it was almost weird to see. There was some level of maturity to it, burying the pain for now to push on with her duty to the village. Compared to her more common emotional outbursts, it was a different side of her that bought some respect from the Hokori. If she wanted to push on, then who was Kanbe to tell her otherwise? "Alright then, we'll put you to work." He replied, beginning to consider what tasks would be best to assign Ty Lee to take care of. Before his thoughts reached their full conclusion, the conversation shifted.

Ty Lee cast the spotlight back onto the Jounin, checking in on him after all that had happened. "Hey, he wasn't that close." Kanbe retorted, brought close to a laugh as he objected. After a short pause, a sigh carried some of the burden he felt away from him. "I'm ... Alright. Really, I've been trying not to think too deeply on it at the moment. I don't know what the hell I'm supposed to think. I just know that I can't afford to be dragged down right now." The man shifted his gaze over his shoulder, looking at the last few gathered shinobi who were departing from his makeshift base of operations. "Our team, the rest of the village ... I feel like everyone is counting on me to stand tall through all of this." Thinking about it made the pain ten times worse. It was easy to lie to himself and say that, without a shadow of a doubt, that wasn't Shingen. Admitting the festering possibility deep in his core that that was his deceased teacher? That took a whole lot more strength than he could afford to spare.

"Later, when things have calmed down a little ... That's when I'll figure all of this mess out." His tone carried with it the conflict that raged on in his heart. Whereas Kanbe was normally known to speak with confidence and conviction, there was an empty uncertainty to his voice.

Raising her eyebrows, the Chuunin couldn't help but tilt her head at Kanbe's choice of words. "Put me to work, you say? Well I'll have you know," she said, placing a finger to her chin, "I'm not cheap." Her voice was coy and full of sarcasm before she laughed it off. Her little joke was buried under Kanbe's sigh and she straightened her face to a less joking manner. She listened silently, before her lips went thin and she let a sigh of her own loose. Her eyes moved down to the sand below them.

"We've never really talked about pain, have we?" She asked, though she wasn't sure how he would react to what she had to say. "I have a few nuggets of wisdom in this empty head of mine and this is one of them. Pain is like this...pressure. It constantly pushes down on us and there are only two things that come from it. It either presses us down into something great, like a diamond, or it grounds us down into nothing. The way you're acting like now," she looked up at him, eyes somewhere between their usual yellow and that rare hazel, "you're looking a lot like a diamond, Kanbe." Placing her hands behind her back, she gave her longtime teammate a genuine grin before rocking back and forth on her heels.

The man's ears perked up at the initial question. "No, I guess we really haven't." Kanbe replied, a hint of remorse to his tone. "You tried to open up a few times early on, but I was always too angry at you to listen." He still wouldn't apologize for his disapproval of her beliefs, as the cult of Jashinism was still something that he couldn't find it in him to condone, but the closeness and rare comfort that the Hokori found in Ty Lee beget regret for his inability to listen. Having been tormented by the past as much as she had been, there was wisdom to Ty Lee's words. She likened pain to a great pressure, crushing down on its victim until they morphed into something new. Either they crumpled under the weight ... Or they were hardened and crafted into a diamond.

Through her eyes, Kanbe was becoming a diamond. When his mouth first opened to reply, no words came to him. A moment of silence caught his tongue while the words played through his head once more. "You ... Really think that?" He eyes darted away towards the sand at the beginning, but found their way back to meet his teammate's by the end. "That's ... Really kind of you." A short chuckle filled the air as he shook his head side-to-side. "Sorry, I'm still not used to those sorts of compliments from you. It has me at a loss for words." It gave him a lot more to think about too. He thought back to earlier when Arid and Ayane had proposed the possibility of him ascending to the rank of Kazekage temporarily while Kyousuke was absent. Even if the latter was partially spoken of only to tease him, there was still a hint to genuine thought to it. All of these comments praised him so highly-- was he really worth all of it? Was it himself who was undervaluing his own place?

A warm smile lit the man's face. "For what it's worth; I know that things were cut too short with Shingen, that there was so much more that you wanted to show him. Even if he didn't get to see it, I hope that you know that he's proud of the person you're becoming. I know that because ..." Kanbe's gaze was shifted away due to his unfamiliarity with having such an open, heartfelt conversation with the girl. It was foreign enough that it almost felt awkward to speak to her like this. A warm feeling rushed over his skin. However, he managed to drag his focus back onto the Jashinist quickly. "I'm proud of you too, Ty Lee." If there was one thing that was certain, it was that Kanbe was a hell of a lot tougher to earn recognition from than their teacher ever was.

He waited to see how she took his words. It was something that he had never once said to her. Kanbe could imagine they were ones she had wished to hear for a long time.

The reaction to her compliment was one that she was happy with but not one she had truthfully been expecting. While the two team members had grown closer in the time since Shingen's passing there was still that something between them, that something being her religious beliefs. While she understood that it was something Kanbe didn't, and likely would never, condone that didn't change her outlook on Jashinism. There was only the hope that one day she could get him to see things her way, to join her how she was now. To avoid the hurt of losing someone she loved again.

She rolled her eyes and kicked the sand in front of her childishly, "Of course I think that, my days of lying to you guys are long gone, you know that." Folding her arms across her chest, Ty Lee shook her head causing the messy twin-tails atop it to bounce slightly. "Well, don't get too used to it. I don't want compliments to become something we do all the time." Her eyes moved up to his, "It means less when you do it all the time and, to me, I want it to mean something when I do it."

The next few words were cathartic to say the least. She wasn't sure if Kanbe was saying them because he thought she needed to hear it but she didn't care even if he was. To know that Shingen, no anyone, was proud of her was something she had yearned for since first becoming a shinobi. Her parents had done away with their ties to her once she became a Jashinist. Her time before Shingen was akin to prison. It was only since meeting them, Kanbe, Shingen, Arid, Ayane, Nensho, Yui, all the people she had grown to love that she had felt like anything more than a corpse. Despite being near them though, there was always that nagging feeling that everything she did was pointless. Time erased all things so what did it matter what these people at this time thought of her? Soon they'd be gone and she wouldn't. That was always the looming shadow in the back of her mind, but hearing Kanbe tell her that he was proud of her? The shadow was blown to pieces. It didn't matter anymore if one day none of this mattered.

It mattered now.

A smile grew from ear to ear as the hints of wetness welled at the corners of her eyes before quickly being wiped away. "That...that means a lot." More than you could ever know. She thought before taking a deep breath through her nose and letting it escape between her lips, "Okay," her hands shook and it seemed like all of the weight of the night's revelations shook free from her with them, "I think we should get to it. There's a lot to do and I'm stuck with you to do it, so we better hurry before the village collapses or something." She joked with a soft, almost flirty, laugh.

It was times like these where Kanbe genuinely forgot about the differences that separated him and Ty Lee. During these happier, emotional moments between them, religion didn't stand between them. It was just Kanbe and Ty Lee, talking to each other heart to heart. The occasions were rare, but deep down far enough that he would never admit it, they were some of his favorites. A smile grew on his own face to match hers as he observed her reaction. The girl was moved to tears, a display that left a warm feeling in the Hokori's chest. He could tell his words hit home. Good, she needs something to smile about now. Kanbe thought to himself. We all do. The sentiments would not last long before Ty Lee pointed out that it was about time they resume their duties as shinobi. To that Kanbe nodded in agreement.

"You're right, we can't sit around all day." Things were getting a little bit too mushy for Kanbe anyway; he could only take short bursts of it before the unfamiliarity with it in their relationship left him feeling strange. "I was going to take up the task of fixing up this Sandcastle, getting through all of the mess and recovering whatever we can from the administrative offices. Hopefully, nothing was damaged too badly during the fight." Kanbe looked over to the obelisk of stone behind him, noticing out of the corner of his eye a small team of Doton-users coming towards the building. "Care to help me sort through this?" Kanbe asked, a light smile against his face. He knew that it might not be where she was best put to use, that instead being within the hospital. However, Kanbe figured what was best for her was to be around those that she considered to be her family. For that reason, it was best that they stay together.

It was time to get to work.

With a small curtsy Ty Lee nodded. "It would be my honor, lord Kazekage." She said with a wink. Thankful that she didn't have to go to the hospital and keep touching people, Ty Lee gave him another smile. There was a lot of work to be done and almost all of it was going to be dreadfully boring. That was what she wanted though. Something so mind-numbing it would make her nearly catatonic. Anything that had to do with the administrative office would definitely fit that category she assumed. That place was a wasteland of entertainment.
