- The Objective:
Name: Escort Mission
Participants: Moon Village, Sun Village
Type: Group Mission
Reward: 25 EXP, 10 Ryo
Location: From one village to another
Details: A villager, local merchant or business man is in need of company on the road while heading to the next village. While they do not believe any danger is involved, the world is full of wild animals and bandits, and would feel safer if a couple of shinobi tagged along. The mission is simple, escort the client to the other village safely.
Requirements: Each person must make at least two posts, totally to 800 WC.
Ryojin had chosen a mission this time that was going to be a bit more of a pain, but it was purely for the advancement of the ease of trading between both villages. He had chosen to be an escort for a mission that was definitely going to be a bit over his head if he had to fly it solo, but thankfully, he had heard wind that two sun shinobi were in on it too. The long trek was from one village, the moon, to the other, the sun. In other words, Ryojin was headed back into the desert again. The idea made him absolutely miserable.
The merchant was fine. That wasn't going to be the drag with this mission. The drag with this mission was the merchant's child. The small soon-to-be prince of currency. Ryojin was in the act of giving this small child a piggy back ride as was the order of the child's father. He was a shinobi not a house slave. It seemed this man wasn't sure exactly how things were supposed to work.
It might've not been that bad if it weren't for the fact that the kid decided to yank on Ryojin's tied back hair to change the direction he was walking. It was pretty crystal clear to any on comers that Ryojin was two steps from murdering a small child and the merchant and his group were none the wiser. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe. The word was resounding in his head almost as more of a mantra than anything else.
It was early morning, the sun was just rising over the horizon. The soft mist made it cool, but not the entire trip would be. Ryojin had already experienced the desert once. It had not gone as well as he had hoped. At least this time he had finally managed to figure out how to use his ice chakra even in the desert. Truth be told, he would have never discovered the jutsu and abilities he had if not for his initial visit.
