As the gates of the Moon Village got closer, the night would start to play itself again from the moment that he arrived on the scene. Sojiro began to enter the village and slowly moved towards the inn that he always stood in, the person behind the counter used to his face and having a room that was seemingly prepared for him. It was a change of pace but it was pretty nice, he wasn't going to lie. The sight of Kannagi laying on the ground, a mangled mess that had a tree fall on her was, was the first thing that he had seen. Sojiro was the only medic on the field, there was nothing that he could have done besides run over to the woman's side and try to heal her. As he got closer, it was the sight of Kenji that had mostly snapped him out of his anger that night, bringing him back into the world of the living. Kannagi had looked like a mess and he remembered shouting orders out, trying to talk Kannagi through the pain, before starting the process to save her life. It didn't take long but it felt like hours, watching the wounds close with dutiful eyes while keeping his hands steady. The medic didn't have time before it sounded like one of the people who had stolen Hikari had appeared, telling them that they were going to die here. Sojiro had given Genkumaru the order to let go of all his anger, to explode with as much fury as he could manage to protect them while Sojiro finished saving Kannagi's life. With a grunt, Sojiro raised a hand to his brows and tried to rub away the headache that was forming while he went over the events of that night again. There wasn't anything that he could have done differently, there was no denying that. Sojiro would get comfy in his bed in that moment and prepare for his mission, one that would need to be completed the moment that the sun passed the horizon.
The ceiling would have seemingly faded away before Sojiro's eyes and have turned into that stormy night, despite that fact that he was trying his hardest to try and avoid thinking about that cursed day. It picked up where he left off, turning to catch sight of the giant explosion that was Genkumaru's true explosive might. Sojiro had commanded that Kenji take the woman and save their lives, seeing that he would go support Genkumaru and end the life of this rogue woman! There was nothing else they can do, the bestial Sun Shinobi having to think quick as the woman tried to crush their comrades but instead he stopped the attack. No, they couldn't let everyone die here, they were so close! There was a determination burning inside of his stomach that he couldn't really escape as Genkumaru had protected them from the onslaught, the two of them getting as close as they could to the woman before they would have tried to use their ultimate technique to claim the woman's life. They had come together to try and claim the woman in a Double Lariat, with enough force to decapitate her... But that wasn't what happened.
As Sojiro had recollected himself from the memories, it seemed that he had finally been able to push the thoughts out of his head and just in time; it was finally night. The encounter and changing of events with Hikari and the others had showed Sojiro that things weren't so cut and dry when applied in the real world. When Sojiro had first become an A-Rank, most of his mission revolved around sabotaging the Moon Village in some way or another, not that it had bothered him but he had always wondered why. Some part of him had felt bad for lying to people that he worked side by side with, for taking advantage of their kindness and using it against them; or beating the crap out of them and making their job difficult. But, there was something different about his approach this time, before doing his best to make sure that no Shinobi doing their job would end up dead. Now, the man had a different approach as he came to the grounds of his target; one of the many merchants that were located inside of the village walls.
It was quick and clean, there wasn't much to it as he moved through the shadows and made sure to play things smarter instead of harder. The guards that were on duty were the first to go, Sojiro overlooking the rooms of the children in the house and trying to find the one that belonged to the adults of the household. As he came into the room, he was surprised by his own calmness, having never really killed a man in his sleep before. He thought that if someone was going to die by his hand that it would be facing him and fully aware but his job called for something different this time. Despite these thoughts, there was no hesitation in his body's movements as he came up to the side of the day and creating a deep slice across the man's neck to end his life. Before anyone could wake up, Sojiro was gone and back into the night, moving to his room at the inn he was staying in.
