It was yet another sunny day in the moon village, birds were singing, flowers were blooming and on days like these, shinobi like Kenji would be sleeping. Alas that was not an option for him, he had recently thought of a new puppet design and he was eager to begin creating it, the only problem being the lack of funds he has and as such, here was yet again on another mission with someone to scout the border. At least this time, he was certain he knew what to do, just simply walk around and talk to any travelers, figure out what they're doing and let them go. Hell probably won't even have to do any talking if he's lucky, well besides talking to his partner of course.
Kenji couldn't help but wonder who his partner will be this time around, he was hoping they'd at the very least be willing to just walk around randomly instead of following some sort of arbitrary rules, it wasn't like there was much to worry about beside those murders... Still Kenji figured if Anbu couldn't figure it out, what hope would lowly genin have? The only real thing Kenji had going for him was designing puppets and he had doubts those skills would translate to solving the serial killer case.
Either way, Kenji only made sure to adjust his holster holding both his Tanto and Wakizashi, the two blades resting within a separate holster each that was tied together with wedges between the two holsters designed to create some space apart from the blades so he can pull one of them out with ease. Of course it'd probably be a lot more effective to buy or build a special holster designed to fit the two blades than Kenji's own thrown together design but he figured he'd just use some of the spare wood and clothe he had laying around after creating Lingchi, the seal for the puppet resting on the holster of his Tanto. He figured it'd help to look a bit more intimidating while out here and what better way to show that than using his two blades? Along with his equipment of course.
Like his previous mission, he wore his flak jacket underneath his own black sleeveless jacket and his forehead protector hung lazily around his neck and much like before, he held his white candy stick in his mouth, the cherry flavor helping him keep his mind from wandering too far. He was nearing his approach to the rendezvous point where he'd meet his partner and then the two would begin scouting, a fairly simple affair all things considered. He wouldn't be too surprised if the two shinobi basically just walked and talked for the next few hours until they both called it a day and returned to the village.
As he stopped at the rendezvous point, he looked around at his surroundings, figuring it'd be a good idea to familiarize himself with this place a bit before his partner shows up. There wasn't much that stood out to Kenji, plenty of trees surrounded him and it appeared the path he was on was currently leading into a valley as the road begun to dip downward in a rather steep angle while far on either side of him the land seemed to have curved upward. It'd probably be a few minutes at a downward angle before the two would be in the valley... If one considered this not part of a valley. He probably should've paid more attention in geography, he was terrible at figuring what his environment was.
