Dressed in light gray pants and a white shirt, her shinobi forehead protector settled at her waist, Kannagi approached the small stables. A slumped wooden sign with hand painted words dictated this was Kreskof Stables. It rested crooked to the side, but the last time she had offered to fix it for Dinah, the old woman had given her a verbal strike. She was as proud as she was old. The stables were a place devoid of manners, etiquette and societal refinery. It was a place that many would have said wouldn't have lasted a month in Nikkousato, but Dinah's rough demeanor hadn't dissuaded any from purchasing from her once rumors got out that she had the best herd in the Sun's whole lands. The gray haired woman surprised Kannagi by informing her that she was not needed to escort an entire herd of camels but just the one. She explained it was a special case scenario and wouldn't say more when Kannagi pressed her about it. The blue haired woman wasn't going to argue about a mission that seemed this easy and had set on the road shortly after, riding atop the golden camel, Minnie.
"Aren't you a little old for traveling?" Kannagi asked the camel. The heat bore down on them and the kunoichi stroked the camel's dusty coat. Camels had always seemed less expressive than horses to Kannagi so she wasn't abundantly shocked when the creature continued lumbering forward through the sand. Due to the age of her mount, Kannagi had stopped overnight to ensure the health of the animal for delivery. Kannagi used a kunai to slice a few apples into smaller pieces. She reached into the camel's pack and withdrew a small basket, filling it with the cut halves of fruit. Minnie munched on them noisily, the slurping sound combining with the crunch of chewing to Kannagi's dismay. She didn't care for the slobbery sounds they made. The kunoichi collected the blanket from the camel and spread it over the sands. When the camel knelt down to rest, Kannagi curled herself up and also slept through the chilly night. At dawn, a red sun woke them both and hurried them on their way.
After some hours of trudging, the pair finally made it to the outpost. Kannagi asked around the busy outpost until she was directed to a young man there, not much older than herself. Kannagi spoke to him about the general care of the camel, handing over the camel's woven blanket, the modified saddle and pouches, the little basket and leftover fruits, and finally a dense looking camel brush. Kannagi reminded the man how to brush the camel's teeth and showed him the basic commands for a rider to use as well. After all of the information she had to share was unloaded on the young man, he gave her a pouch of gold to return to Dinah. Kannagi gave Minnie a good pat on the flank before heading back out into the desert and home to Nikkousato.
