Ami woke up slightly more groggily than she had expected to. It was still the early morning as the girl slowly rose out of bed. It took her a moment to realize that she had a mission to do today, remembering her talk with Karite about another mission they would do together. The Hyuuga really enjoyed having company, much more exciting than doing missions alone. She made a quick piece of toast while brushing her teeth, thinking about the adventures ahead. As she tried to pick an outfit, the young shinobi remembered about the antidote she had to take with her.
Phew, almost forgot, she thought to herself as she took the antidote for her heart condition and put it in her pocket. It was merely for safe keeping since she wouldn't want to cause any unnecessary problems while on a mission with Karite. She quickly got dressed in her usual black dress, took her katana and was out of the Hyuuga compounds. It was surprising to her to be going out so frequently recently, having not gone anywhere since becoming a Genin. She guessed it to be a good thing and smiled to herself for making some new friends.
She would meet Karite and head to the Barrens. Although she wasn't exactly sure what was ahead, she knew that she could count on her friend. Karite always looked so confident, something she respected a lot. Ami on the other hand wasn't always so, half because she never pays attention to things. So in a way she was really glad to have met people who were completely opposite from her. The Hyuuga especially enjoyed these missions with Karite because they clicked so well together without seeming foreceful.
They would chatter about all things irrelevant while they walked onto Kataki Roas, which was a long-winding road to the Barrens. The two girls talked, laughed and enjoyed their time together, all the while keeping a mindful eye of their surroundings. This was the first time for Ami to take this road and she had heard that there were cases where some shinobi got into fights or accidents along the way. She secretly hoped that they would make it to their destination peacefully, as the last thing she wanted was unnecessary trouble. The two girls would find themselves at their destination some hours later, all the while Ami wondering what lay ahead.
