As the last explosive notes were... Defeated? Destroyed? Something like that. Arashi sighed in relief, Shizuka asked how he was and while it embarrassed him a little, she was technically his superior right now, so he figured it was only natural that she wouldn't want a stain in her reputation by having someone in her charge being harmed or killed. So with that in mind, he just responded with "Yeah I'm ok..." He sighed again "Just a bit tired, but as I said you don't have to worry about me." He smiled a bit weakly.
When Shizuka went to disable the rest of the notes that were wet and still flopping around, Arashi followed her example and started to do so as well, cutting some of them with his sword. he noticed the way they were moving was almost as if they were alive, this struck Arashi as something really odd. he searched for a while and when he couldn't find anymore he stretched and walked back towards Shizuka, She asked if he was ready to go home to what his only answer would be "Yes!" he said this in a way that suggested he was more than ready to get out of there, he needed some rest and a bit of time away from... well... explosions. after all, he was almost consumed by them at one point and was only able to escape by the skin of his teeth. Although he was a bit puzzled as to what had just happened, he was sure that reporting it and getting some rest would be the best course of action. He drank some water and then they started to travel back to the village, where he could hopefully sleep for a while, and regain his chakra
they were now getting out of the area where the notes attacked people, he could tell since now they could barely see any explosion marks and after some minutes more of walking there were no more scorch marks nor craters, feeling a bit safer Arashi visibly relaxed, sighing yet again while he stretched his arms a little, he felt the need to yawn he tried to hold it and thankfully he succeded although by little, he looked back at Shizuka who was traveling by his side, even though he was still a bit embarrassed he somehow felt less awkward around her now.
