The will of fire was very strong within Kairo and over the past few years this had been made very apparent to Minato, even if he had not of been the Hokage. If one man loved Konoha that much, there was no telling the bounds of love that other people also had for the great fire nation to continue to grow and become better for what was best for all the people. Ninja like Kairo oten were looked down upon, but just because you weren't openly hyped about something each and every passing second of the day did not mean that you were lacking.
If Kairo wanted to be lazy he could be so as much as he wanted with no loss and plenty of gain on his part. When it counted Kairo was completely reliable and that was why Minato had an immense amount of respect for the jounin that stood before him. As Kairo began to voice hsi feelings for Konoha and what his purpose might have been, the Hokage decided then and there that Kairo would play a great role in the advancement of Konoha. "Well then, your resolve seems even greater than my own." With no inhibitions to who might have seen them embrace, Minato smiled and spoke to Kairo softly, "You my friend will have a purpose soon enough."
A woman dropped down from atop the faces and instantly, Minato had a dagger pointed in her direction but her voice stopped his advance, "Minato, it's been a long time, four years if I'm not mistaken." This woman was none other than a girl that for many years, Minato had been friends with, more so her parents in years passed but something had happened and they all had stopped talking. He knew that the reason was stupid but as a man Minato had fallen back on a promise to both the woman before him and her elder brother.
"Flora. I hadn't expected to see you here but I'm more than a little surprised that you're one of the Kissui Tensai. The group of ninja that over the past few years have produced great rallies to cause unrest within the nations, how could you possibly do such a thing??" His stern expression bore holes through Flora, she knew what the look meant at anytime. "Do I need to ask you where Ichigo is..."
"Hahaha, Arashi look at you, all cut up and looking like the son I know and love. I take it Sanosuke's test didn't prove too much for you at all but I can easily see you were too cocky and ended up having a harder time than you assumed eh?" The humor in Daaku's eyes was apparent but there was also a tad glimpse of rage that one was able to notice if they looked Daaku right in the eye...and that was something that rarely ever happened. "So that's all well and good but Arashi you have it all wrong" The expression that had been up until then hidden; had now come full force as Daaku's voice rose to a fever pitch. "ARASHI!!! WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK THIS IS!?!?! WHERE IS THE REST OF YOUR TEAM??"
As the former Tsuchikage Daaku had to be aware that because he was from Iwa, that most of the ninja from those parts were extremely cocky and talked a lot of trash to other ninja but it wasn't out of trying to cause problems it was normally part of the pride they had from being part of the Rock Nation. Rock hard, bodies, attitudes, and demeanor was what they were all about, so for Daaku to stay angry at his own son for displaying his nature was wrong but he hadn't just done that. "Son, listen to me. You are a part of a team, you can't just run off and leave them behind and assume that because you have certain skills that they are lesser than you. For a team to manage themselves there must be a leader and then those that assist. Being a great ninja has nothing to do with power at every turn, you are on a team so remember that okay??"
Ayumi looked hyped, she was more than willing to battle Kaito and see what he was made of but first she laughed at what Normatsu had told her. He had always been a funny character and for what it was worth he had never let any of them down in anyway that she could recall, her memory was great due to her Burakkuai, so if there was something to be recalled she was the one to talk to about it. "That's so twisted, what made you just cover it up, couldn't you have maybe fixed it?? I bet some hottie had your attention..." Kaito started to babble about what he was to do and where he wanted to go, it was ruining the moment for Ayumi because she knew that already he liked her. That worked for her, they just had to be careful.
"So Daaku, you know Yahiko been thinking of adding you to the Akatsuki?"
He didn't looked moved by the notion, "Is that so?? I don't have time to be part of that Normatsu, eve if I did I have better things to do as is. The idea that Yahiko cares is nice though, I can't blame the guy, you see my amazing skills right??" Daaku laughed to himself. "Looks to me like Kaito is ready Ayumi, you guys can get started if you want to."
"Sounds good to me daddy, Arashi, watch this, I'm so about to own Kaito..." she jumped forward and flipped into the air, spinning around rapidly as her body moved upward and then started to drop down behind Kaito. She vanished very quickly and her voice rang out, "Surasshu mukō." The noise of her jutsu became shrill and high oitched, getting louder with each second in an attempt to disorient Kaito so that he was unable to discern her position. A chakratic blade shot forward from where she was located, coming in from the left side, making an even louder noise than before. The best part was that nobody could hear the noise but Kaito.
From above Kaito however, her actual blade fired down shaped like a giant claw made to tear into Kaito and knock him further into the path of her jutsu.
