Mikomi stood at the gate of the Sun Village. Waiting patiently in the shadow of the gate for her companion to arrive. She rubbed her temple. She had a headache for a few days after her spar with Shizuka. And the two hadn't really spoken since then. Waking up in the nearby infirmary had not been pleasant. She was sick of losing every fight she undertook against other shinobi. First Sojiro, then Shizuka. Though, both had resulted in both knocked the other out. Was that the only way she could actually win? That was frustrating. She adjusted the bow on her back, and shifted her channeller's katana in its sheath.
She had opted for more travel appropriate clothes this time. Wrapping herself in a large cloak that concealed her weapons and gear. She had it pulled back, to experience the cooler morning desert air. It felt chilly on her bare skin. But she knew it wouldn't last. Soon the air would be filled with the unforgiving heat of the Sun high overhead.
She had requested that Imino Shizuka be the one to accompany her into the wilds. To search for the tomb of the Executioner. A vile man who was said to have lived far in the past. Discovery of the tomb could easily lead to a great advantage for the shinobi who found it. As well as their village.
As soon as Imino Shizuka arrived, they would depart. With Mikomi not wasting much time on pleasantries or converstaion. They had a mission to do.
