Uchiha Tenzō

S-rank
At this hour of the day, there were only a few lights which illuminated and gave shape towards this long and eerie corridor; however, they were more than enough to guide the group towards the staircase which would take them down at the reception of this inn. With a couple of heavy footsteps the Uchiha began descending upon those stairs which released the same screeching and squeaky sound which announced that presence before arriving at Reiko. Once those sounds erected and assaulted that pair of ears, the man peered towards the young woman to seek out if she had any kind of reaction towards the sound, and if so, something must be done with this so that she may not get herself alarmed and distracted during combat. Those ebony and dull eyes only peered at the young lady for no more than two or three seconds, since the man did not wished to give away the impression that he was actually seeking a reaction or not. Nonetheless, after that small glimpse was taken, the silver-haired man continued on in order to leave behind this inn alongside with Reiko.

The well-known resort which went by the name of Mountain Ikkyu was vividly shinning like a firework upon this dank and eerie night, and even at this ungodly hour people were roaming the alleys like there was no tomorrow; a bit too crowded one may think, however, the Uchiha did not had any kind of problems when it came towards a large number of people such as this. Besides the flickering and dim lights which illuminated this place, the slumbering moon alongside those celestial stars were basking those beneath with their pale light. As such, not even a single grey cloud could be seen on that pitch-black canvas, the whole sky was clear and there was nothing besides the peaks around who could prevent the moon from bestowing its grandiose and shimmering rays of light against the ground beneath. It was quite rare to catch a view such as this, considering that this place was almost daily invaded by clouds, and the weather upon this single day was nothing less than perfect; fair was probably the best word to describe it.

Beneath the majestic lights of those celestial objects, the Uchiha could easily blend in the environment due to that long and silver hair which reached all the way down and bellow that thin waist of his. When placed against the pale light of that moon, those silver strands of hair were glittering brightly as if the whole color was now much more closer towards white. However, the light was a bit harder to be spotted upon that pale skin of Tenzō since it was already a white which kind of resembled the which emanated from that moon which clung upon that sky. Those cheeks of his might have been a bit warm from the wine, but the actual reddish color was not yet visible upon that skin, there was not even a drop of doubt that the young man was capable of holding those grounds of his when it came towards alcohol. With this being said, the jōnin wasn’t particularly fond of beverages with a high alcohol degree, but more those which revolved around the same kind of level that was detained mostly by wines.

Nonetheless, there was no need for them to remain standing anymore within the front of the inn, as such, the silver-haired man beckoned Reiko over whilst heading down towards and alley, heading between the crowds of people while slightly trying to avoid direct contact with them. “Don’t worry, Reiko, since the location is not that far from here.” were the words which came out between those pale lips on a benevolent and calm tone, whilst those ebony and dull eyes took a glimpse over that right shoulder of his. With those words left behind, the Uchiha tilted back that head of his forth whilst continuing to guide the way towards one of the buildings which detained a private hot spring. Therefore, in a couple of minutes, somewhere between eight to ten, the group could finally see a towering building beneath their eyes. The building itself was had three sections and all of them were surrounded by a rather medium sized wall, which prevented any kind of prying eyes from gazing upon the wonders that could be found here in the night.

Two of the sections of this well-known hot spring had them located outside and beneath that pitch-black sky, whilst the last one had the spring encased between four walls and roof which made the whole location a bit more intimate and relaxing because of the steamy presence which lingered inside. As such, in just a couple of moments, the group found themselves standing beneath the iron bar gates which separated the courtyard from the outside of the walls, and those gates were opened whilst two henchmen stood at the entry. “Well, this is the location I was talking about, also don’t think about the expenses since those are going to be on me. As such, if you want something, please do let me know.” the Uchiha uttered whilst taking the first step inside that courtyard, stepping upon what appeared to be a well-done pavement which was made out of stone, both pleasant and sturdy for the touch. Alongside the course which guided them towards the main building, there were numerous types of flowers that were giving this whole place some kind of a royal feeling to it.

A simple task was given towards that pavement, and that was to connect the exterior which started from those iron gates towards those large wooden doors that were lingering at the entrance of this towering building, which had an interesting shape overall. Just to remind people about the purpose of this building, there was a sign made out of wood and located outside which had the two words written on them, just like every other hot spring, and those words indicated hot water. Traditionally, hot springs are located outside the building, although, some of the people who run a business such as this, prefer to actually offer their clients the opportunity to bath inside as well, between four walls. There was an entire culture build upon these hot springs, and their reputation extended towards the fact which caused some people to believe that they have regenerative powers, a strange phenomenon which was explained by the amount of rare minerals which the water had.

Within mere moments, and with a couple of more footsteps which followed up were capable of bringing these two leaf shinobi inside the main building which apparently had a decent amount of people which ceaselessly moved from a corner to another, both staff and clients were included in this description. The staff could easily be discerned by the way they acted and dressed, since both females and males were wearing the same king of kimono. A pale blue was the predominant color, and at the edges of that silky fabric there was a thick line of green, but the most obvious betrayal was given by the fact that those robes had written the name of this hot spring on their back. The Kanji symbols were written and imprinted the backside of the robe in a white color that was contrasting the blue one quite well; without a doubt, this hot spring had some high quality standards due to the whole conduit of clothes and in the way this place was arranged.

Halfway towards the reception, there were two hostess which greeted these two leaf shinobi as they made their way inside, giving out a “Welcome to Shirahama, and enjoy your stay.” that was spoken in unison on a melodic tone. After those words, they gave a formal bow at which the silver-haired man responded with a short nod in return, since those footsteps of his were guiding him against the brunette which lingered behind the counter, the one in charge of dispatching the rooms. In just a couple of moments, that ceaseless amount of heavy footsteps forced Tenzō to halt in front that counter, and without even having a chance to let a single word out, the woman began speaking on a cheerful and friendly tone. “Greetings, have the both of you been here before, or are you new customers?” the woman inquired whilst reaching out for a register book which stood at the edge of that wooden desk. “Good evening, and yes, I have been here before. However, I am interested in what rooms are available now.” the silver-haired man responded on a curious tone, whilst fixating those ebony and dull eyes against the person which stood forth.

“Well, at this hour we only have three more free, two are located outside and only one of them is with a roof. Which one may interest you?” the woman asked as those blue eyes of hers shifted from time to time, firstly at the Uchiha before going back towards the Hyūga. Before answering that question, Tenzō tilted that head of his towards Reiko, looking for her own pair of shimmering white eyes in order to pose a question. “All of these rooms have the same price and are private, and I’m going to let you pick which one you want, Reiko. So, please tell me, do you prefer the outdoor one or the indoor hot spring?” the silver-haired man asked on a benevolent tone before letting the corner of those lips ascend in order to form a slight smile. The young woman did not seem to have that much initiative, and so, the jōnin wished for her to take this decision before answering the brunette; perhaps, with these slight pushes from the man, Reiko might be capable of strengthening that personality of hers.

Hyuga Reiko

Following Tenzo from the inn's main building, Reiko felt her foot catch on the doorframe. She stumbled forward with a little yelp, just managing to catch herself before she fell, and ended up hurting something or someone. Thankfully, Tenzo didn't seem to notice her sudden clumsiness, and so she stood quietly while he paused. Glancing around at the crowd, the Hyuga brought her hands up to her cheeks, rubbing them in an attempt to get rid of the heat she felt there. She wasn't sure why she was blushing, she wasn't all that nervous about anything. Even so, the rubbing was to no avail. She could feel that her cheeks were still warm, though she found it hard to focus on the fact. Much simpler things were becoming much more interesting by the minute. Glancing back over at Tenzo, she found him beckoning her, and she turned, trotting after him curiously, stumbling once again on a loose stone. She stuck close to him, not wanting to end up lost in the crowds of people. She barely heard the words he tossed back at her, but nodded anyways, her head tilting back to look up at him as she did so.

By the time they'd reached the onsen, Reiko found herself much less in control of herself, tripping for the third time that night, now over nothing she could see. She did fall this time, but managed to pull herself back up quickly. She wasn't covered in dust or anything, but she probably wouldn't have cared even if she had been. Leaning back a bit, Reiko looked up and down at the hotspring, and smiled lightly, a small chuckle coming from her. "It looks like a prison," she said, merely amused. More trailing after Tenzo led her to a gate, where two guards stood. She was much too interested in the area around her to notice Tenzo for a moment, missing the words he spoke to her. A moment's wait lent them their ticket into the courtyard, where the kunoichi looked around again, her head tipping to the side a bit, to the point that her bangs fell slightly over her face. The flowers distracted her for a moment, causing the girl to bend over one of the plants, her ivory gaze alight with curiosity. "Irises," she said, one hand coming out to poke the flower before the girl turned, jogging after Tenzo, who'd moved to go further into the onsen. Her eyes followed the staff as they moved inside, curious. She'd always liked kimonos, though she only owned one herself. They were interesting pieces of clothing, to her, and the only thing that kept her from going up and attempting to touch one was the fact that Tenzo kept moving. She followed after, not wanting to be left behind. When they came to the desk, and both paused, she looked at the hostess with a smile. One of her hands came up to grip Tenzo's sleeve unconsciously, as if to keep him from wandering away from her again.

Reiko kept silent as the two spoke, seeing no need at all to speak herself. At least, until a question was proposed to her, leaving the girl to straighten up slightly in surprise, looking between Tenzo and the hostess as if it were a bit of a joke. They seemed serious, however, and so Reiko paused, trying to seem as if she was thinking. "Uh," she said, momentarily stumped. She'd never been all that good at making decisions, the finality of them always forcing her to over think the decision itself. Thinking a bit, she found she liked the idea of seeing the stars, and so she lifted an arm to pull at her own sleeve, the sleeve on the arm that was still attached to Tenzo's. "Um, outside," she said, her voice still retaining it's curious tone from when she was looking at the flowers. "The stars will be pretty, right?" Of course, it was a rhetorical question, but the way she spoke made it seem as though as it wasn't so. Reiko didn't notice her strange lapse, however, looking between the two with wide eyes, happy that she'd actually decided something efficiently for once.

Uchiha Tenzō

S-rank
It was a bit disappointing to think that the whole trip from the inn and towards the hot springs was rather silent, except for that one moment in which the Uchiha announced that the building was not really far away. Considering how shy and quiet was Reiko in general, this shouldn’t have been a surprise after all; however, progress was expected to be made in this particular night, and perhaps, the silver-haired man would be capable of getting rid of those inhibitions which kept Reiko tight in that spot. Nonetheless, the mood was getting better once they reached this part of the resort, and a chuckle almost escaped between those pale lips once the young lady chose to refer at this place as a prison; the walls which surrounded this place were most likely the things which gave away that impression, but privacy was a thing which these people offered besides those usual services. The hot spring was rather good for relaxing and cleaning up those thoughts, and for this reason alone, Tenzō preferred the services of a private spring instead of those who offered public baths.

Quite a few things were learned by this particular silver-haired man from the way in which Reiko behaved, and one of those gestures made him lean on the idea that she was easily distracted by their surroundings. An impression which was given due to the fact that this particular studded had fallen behind a bit when she stopped to observe that garden of flowers which surrounded that pavement made out of stone. The Uchiha did not really needed to turn in order to realize that, since that conclusion alone was given by those keen ears which were capable of hearing once those footsteps had halted and the moment which the most assuring word was given away, the one which indicated the nature of those flowers. In spite of the fact that the man realized that Reiko halted for a few mere moments, the jōnin went on and did not stop, not even when that hand of hers had managed to clutch that fabric. Instead of letting any words out, the tall figure slightly tilted that head of his against Reiko while throwing out a warm smile to reassure her that everything was going to turn out fine.

Once those ebony and dull eyes redirected themselves from the hostess and back towards Reiko, picking up the fact that the young lady was taken by surprise was not really that surprising for the man; however, this question was mostly placed so that the man would make this particular lady a bit more involved. Indeed, Tenzō would follow up with the initial plan to hopefully make a change in Reiko’s personality, and this simple request for her to decide was nothing less than the beginning of this particular night. In that moment, that gaze remained lingering on the Hyūga who apparently used the free hand to pull her own sleeve which made sure to keep the Uchiha’s hand in place, as if she did not wished to be left alone. “Sure, Reiko. The sky is quite clear and we can gaze upon the sky, on that beautiful scenery.”  were the next couple of words that left between those pale and slightly parted lips, and they more than enough for the hostess to understand what kind of hot spring they wanted.

Without further ado, the hostess behind the counter gave them indications towards the compartment in which they should go right after those individuals showers were done, and whilst the leaf pair of shinobi was going to do so, another hostess will go and arrange the room for them. “Alright, let’s head out and get ourselves ready, Reiko.” the Uchiha uttered gently whilst a couple of footsteps began guiding him towards the two rooms which contained the lockers, alongside the showers that were separated for each gender. As such, after a couple of moments, the group was standing in a large hallway which lead towards the hot springs themselves and on each side of this hallway, a couple of doors could be seen which had the kanji symbol for lockers. “Reiko, do you mind passing me the soap right now, since we’re going to be separated until we meet back up at the outdoor hot spring, also don’t forget we have room number six.” the silver-haired man spoke on a gentle tone before extending that right hand of his in order  to await for one of the two bars of soap which Reiko brought with her.    

Right after those words ended, and after the man took the soap, another couple of heavy footsteps were more than enough to guide the Uchiha towards the men’s locker room, lockers which contained a decent amount of fairly large baskets in which those clothes could drop before enjoying the services of this hot spring. Once the man had successfully managed to arrive in front of his own, those scrawny fingers of his reached out to grasp the door knob before twisting it firmly to open up that door which belonged towards that locker. With the path now opened, the silver-haired man used both of those hands for the next act, in which the man slithered those all of those scrawny fingers within the inside of that formal and long sleeve shirt before pulling it up carefully over that chiseled chest of his. It did not take long for him to get that shirt off, and right after that the silver-haired man folded it carefully before placing it inside that basket, since there was a decent amount of discipline imprinted upon this person. Because of the effort which was given daily towards training, the young jōnin did not even had a single inch of fat upon that body of his, and everything was kept well-toned with those exercises along a healthy diet.

Perhaps, it might have been a better idea to start with those feet at first, although, right after that shirt was no longer standing between those hands, and with those two knees slightly bending, the Uchiha crouched just before letting that firm buttocks of his sink upon a nearby bench in order to relieve those feet from that pair of sandals which had a grey color that perfectly matched his own shirt. Since those were now out of the way, those hands of his began making their way once more upwards in order to unbutton those skinny pants which shortly followed after that the rest of his clothing which were lingering inside that basket. Like every other services that were given by hot springs, this one offered as well a white towel in case you did not bothered bringing one for yourself, as such, Tenzō reached out for it before wrapping it neatly alongside that thin waist of his. Once that white tower was now making sure to not leave the man butt naked, the silver-haired figure locked the locker before reaching out on the bench once more to take the bar of soap that was given earlier by Reiko.

Therefore, with everything now ready, the silver-haired man began making his way towards the showers in which he spent a couple of minutes to make sure that not even a single part of that pale skin was being missed. A prestigious place such as this already offered liquid soap in case you did not brought one, and Tenzō was aware of this but the man did not wished to make Reiko’s gesture and effort to be one done in vain. With just a right twist of that knob, the warm water was now stopped and without wasting any more time in this place, the Uchiha wrapped up that white towel along his waist before proceeding back towards the hallway in order to start making his way towards the spring. The door which stood beneath the number six was made out of glass which did not allow others to see through it, and the handle was clenched before the first steep was actually took inside of this outdoor place.

Apparently, Reiko had not yet arrived and she was probably still within the shower if it was not finished already, but nonetheless, the tall figure began making his way towards the warm water of this hot spring. Because this place was placed outside, the steam which arose from that water was not capable of remaining for long in this place, and everything was quite clear unlike the indoor ones which acted more like a sauna of some sorts. The granite underneath was pleasant towards the touch, and with just a couple of steps the man was capable of relocating himself at the edge of this hot spring, against which the man stopped in order to think about the next act. Not more than a few seconds were given into this, but with a quick jerk that white towel which was neatly wrapped along that thin was immediately dropped against the ground beneath. It was just the two of them after all, and standing with a soggy piece of clothing was not the most comfortable way of spending time within this place, as such, those were the words which fueled up that bold move.

Since that was now out of the way, the silver-haired man took the first step inside that warm water before the other followed up shortly; in no time at all, the man began crouching down in order to rest himself against the edge of this hot spring. Before the arrival of this particular person, the room itself was prepared with a silver tray that was placed upon a rock which stood in the middle of this hot spring, and that tray itself had a small bottle of sake with two cups upon it. Nonetheless, the tall figure did not move a single inch since that body of his had now succumbed towards this spring, and the Uchiha was now awaiting for Reiko to arrive. In the meanwhile, Tenzō began thinking of what was probably the best approach to make this young lady forgive about those restrains which kept her locked inside an imaginary cage that was created by herself. Only a few words could describe the outstanding view given by the sky above which acted as a celestial and never-ending ceiling for this majestic place, and so the man awaited with that water reaching all the up towards his throat.

Hyuga Reiko

The look that Reiko received from the hostess seemed almost… cursory, but she didn’t notice all that much, her eyes turning to look at Tenzo as he agreed with her. She smiled, glad that she’d made a good choice. Choices weren’t often given to her, at least, not ones that involved other people. When she was younger, she couldn’t even decide when to stand or not. It was always decided by her parents what she did, and when. Now, however, she got some decisions that she got to make, though she did live in the same house, leaving it so that some decisions were still taken from her by an overprotective mother. Being used to it, it didn’t bother her all that much, but at the same time, sometimes decision making tended to make her nervous. She always worried that she would make the wrong decision, and make things harder for everybody else. This time, though, everything went okay, the hostess simply putting in the information, and giving them instructions on what to do next. After having been given instructions on entering the baths, Reiko felt Tenzo begin to move, and released his sleeve, though she followed him still. The lights caught her eyes a bit, bringing a sneeze to her sinuses, the high-pitched noise that came from her echoing a bit in the area. The force of it caused her to stop, her eyes widening slightly in surprise. She was quiet for a moment afterwards, then erupted into a small amount of giggles at the sneeze, finding it strangely hilarious.  

After a few seconds, Reiko controlled herself somewhat, catching up with Tenzo and turning her gaze up at him as he spoke to her once more. Smiling brightly when asked for the soap, she nodded, looking down to her thigh and pulling open the little bag tied there. She pulled out both of the soap bars, the paper crinkling dully as she pulled it up. Their neat packaging hadn’t fallen apart with the walk, though the ends of the folded paper were a bit wrinkled. “Here you go! I won’t forget, I promise you,” Reiko half spoke, half laughed, still somewhat jovial from her sneeze. She reached out, setting the soap in his palm, pushing his fingers shut gently around it, a simple habit she had developed as a child when giving people things.  He left then, and she paused a second, looking up at the sign indicating the women’s side a moment before wandering in.

Entering, the girl looked around curiously, her ivory gaze showing some traces of curiosity.  Her momentary pause gave her a second to take in the room, and she nodded to herself before making her way over to the lockers. She pulled one open easily, leaving it open as she sat down on the floor for a moment, pulling her boots back off with a little grunt of effort for each one. Standing, those went into the locker, off to the side of the basket, placed very carefully. Boots were often hard to find, considering most people wore the traditional shoes most shinobi wore, so she didn’t want them messed up or anything. She then bent halfway down, removing her little pouch from around her thigh, setting it alongside the shoes. Having left her sash and belt at her hotel room, she was now able to simply pull her shirt over her head, holding it in her mouth by the collar while followed with the pants, folding those before folding the shirt atop it. The room was warm, but a shiver ran through Reiko all the same, her arms lifting to rub goosebumps from her arms. She was usually good with chill, but having so little meat on her bones made her easily cold. She wasn’t underweight at the moment, in fact, she considered herself to be rather healthy looking, considering all the training she was doing, but all the same, she often had to keep careful watch on her food to make sure she didn’t fall under the proper weight zone again.

Wanting to escape the chill quickly, Reiko removed her undergarments, putting them under the shirt and pants, as she was used to doing, and picked up the towel, shaking it out of it’s folded state and wrapping it around her body, tucking the end in just underneath her arm so the item held itself up. She picked up the soap that she had set aside to undress, and made her way to the showers, leaving the towel away from a moment to scrub herself down, getting rid of a day’s worth of training dirt. Her hair she tied up, using the strap from the bag she usually kept on her thigh as a makeshift ribbon, tying it up in a messy bun.  Reiko stepped out a few minutes later, grabbing the towel and pulling it back on, turning and making her way out of the showers. It took her a few moments to find Room 6, and when she did, she simply opened the door unceremoniously and speaking a small greeting, turning her back a moment to close it carefully behind her.  

Turning once more, she found Tenzo had arrived before her, and was already in the water, sunk in to his chin. A spot of white caught her eye, and she looked down, spotting another towel on the ground nearby the edge of the water.  Fractionally, her eyes widened as a realization came to her. Ordinarily, she probably would’ve, for misplace of a better word, freaked out, blushed, and been extremely worrisome about the situation, but as it was, the wine still fogging her senses a bit, Reiko simply blinked, thinking less about the normal way she would react, simply considering that it must be something she was supposed to do as well. So, the Hyuga lifted her arms, untucking the end of towel and pulling it away from her body. Some shyness did catch now, causing her to simply move into the water, rather than testing it first, a shiver running through her at the heat of the water, almost burning, but in a way that felt amazing.  She folded the towel and left it at the edge, turning and wading over to Tenzo, her body staying below the water all the same. Settling herself down next to him, she let her body relax slightly, suddenly shy once more, her eyes looking up to the stars, automatically searching out familiar constellations. One of her hands lifted out of the water, brushing small wisps of hair that tickled the back of her neck away from her skin. “So pretty,” she said, an attempt at conversation.

Uchiha Tenzō

Curiously, the silver-haired man thought about why Reiko chose to let go of that jet-black sleeve once the man decided to move towards the lockers, since that mind anticipated that she would still keep on that innocent grip until they were going to split towards their own different room. Nonetheless, no words escaped those pale lips as a comment towards that gesture, but what forced the man to speak was the fact that Reiko sneezed out loudly enough to make a sound which echoed throughout the hallway. In that moment, Tenzō looked over that shoulder of his just to witness how surprised was the young lady regarding the gesture itself, and those ebony eyes had widen just as hers. Without further ado, those pale lips had parted in order to make room for a couple of words “Luckily, we’re going to the springs, and hopefully the water will prevent you from catching a cold. If not, then you should probably visit a medical-nin in the morning, Reiko.” which were spoken on a calm and assuring tone, just a couple of moments before the man would decide to request that soap.

Apparently, the red and sweet wine had started kicking into those senses of hers, since she seemed to be quite entertained over something so simple such as a sneeze; hopefully, this was the right thing to do, considering that it was better to start such habits with someone of trust. This particular Uchiha was outgoing from an early age, and experiencing things such as drinking happened when the man found himself beneath the threshold which marked him into adulthood. Tenzō always enjoyed visiting the bars but not really with the main intention of drinking, but more because of the people who roamed there and due to the fact that he was bestowed with social skills, the man had the opportunity of meeting all kind of people. When it came towards life experience, there were little things that were not known by this jōnin, since the man had interacted with all kind of people which ranged between bookworms and cutthroats, and the most awkward part is that he viewed them all equally and did not judge them with those dull and ebony eyes of his.

Each and every muscles began to loosen up as they eventually gave in to relax themselves within this warm and pleasant water, and those ebony eyes were slowly being taken over by a curtain up until the moment when the door was opened up once more. Therefore, they went against the door to gaze upon Reiko who just decided to finally join in as well, with what appeared to be a white towel to cover up that body and a ribbon to keep that black hair of hers in place; however, that was not too uncommon from her normal behavior. What followed up was something a bit unexpected, and those ebony and dull eyes remained fixated on Reiko as she took down the white towel, before letting it glide down along what appeared to be an appealing frame. As expected, shyness started to kick in upon Reiko, but not so much nor in a way to make it completely obvious, and that everlasting gaze of the Uchiha scoured the body complexly from head to toes even if it was for a moment or two, since the young woman chose to enter the water abruptly without really testing it first.

Unlike Reiko who carefully arranged that towel of hers alongside the hot spring, the silver-haired man just let it drop alongside that vessel before leaving there it place; in other words, the man did not bothered to place it neatly down. Nonetheless, those ebony eyes were set on Reiko even when she decided to stand next towards the man, and it was a bit surprising to see that the first person who would a attempt to speak was actually her. Even though, Tenzō was gazing at her with those eyes lowering down against that chest of hers, the words which came out between those pale lips “Indeed, Reiko. They really are beautiful.” were spoken on a calm tone before those eyes moved away from Reiko in order to seek out the drinks. With a gentle push, the Uchiha arose from that seated position before taking a couple of steps towards the rock which was located in the middle of this hot spring, in order to take the silver tray and bring it back towards the edge. In just a couple of moments, the man returned with the plate which was placed upon the stony floor which was located around the spring, and so, the man once more took the same position that was taken before.

“So tell me, Reiko. You didn’t seem to have any problem joining me without a towel, have you done this before?” the silver-haired man inquired on a calm and gentle tone, whilst those scrawny fingers reached out of that small bottle of sake in order to wrap themselves along it, so that the cork may be pulled easily after. Without further ado, the man poured a bit of sake within his own empty flask, and once it was fill the cork was placed back to cover up the bottle; perhaps, pouring for Reiko as well might have been too much, so that’s why the man decided to not do so. “This is sake, Reiko. And, since you have no experience with alcohol, drinking anything more might be a bit too much.” Tenzō explained himself whilst reaching out for his own cup of sake, slowly bringing it towards those pale lips. Usually, sake was served warm and due to the warm steam which was emanating from this water, the drink itself was kept at a decent temperature to make it enjoyable.

As such, that head of his slightly tilted backwards whilst those pale lips parted between each other in order to make room for the drink once the cup was placed against them, letting the warm liquid cascade freely within the inside of his own throat. Those long strays of hair were getting themselves deeper within the water, and the man was not really bothered by this fact since most of it was already soaked; it was long after all, since it reached all the way down towards the crotch. Once the cup of sake was empty, Tenzō placed it back on the tray before letting out a couple of words “I’m rather curious, Reiko. Where does your loyalty stand, with your friends or for the village? Who would you fight for?” which turned out to be questions, to satisfy a curiosity that was held by this particular person. In reality, the  silver-haired man was interested to see what kind of students he had, if they were the kind to act rationally or the type who usually followed up the orders of a person in command.

Right after those questions were posed, the silver-haired man awaited for the answers before coming drawing a faint conclusion on what kind of loyalty did Reiko had; however, those were going to be the last ones for this night, since pushing on further might be a bit too much for one night. This was a night meant for relaxation and not for politics or other kinds of activities which may imply the professional  life or personal goals, and with those thoughts in mind, Tenzō ceased from asking anymore questions and took the remaining time to relax, which was somewhere between ten to twenty minutes since it was already late if you were to think about it. Having a number of four students in that squad of his, it was a bit too hard to spend too a considerable amount of time with each one individually, and so, this particular person had to manage that agenda of his accordingly to make sure that they weren’t being left out. Nonetheless, those pale lips made sure to not stay too far away from that warm sake which was going to fade away inside the belly of this particular shinobi, since leaving it to waste was not something the man truly wished to do so.

And so, right after that bottle was completely finished till the last drop, the silver-haired man arose from that hot spring in order to grab the white towel once more and wrap it neatly around that thin waist of his. Without further ado, a couple of words were left behind in order to announce that the man had to go away in order to catch a few hours of sleep since the next day was also going to be filled with different kind of activities. Hopefully, Reiko would have decided to tag along so that the Uchiha would escort her back home before making his way towards his own lodge which was located at the outskirt of these mountains. After all it was cheaper to rent it there than inside the center of this place, also the background noise made by the crowds of people who roamed the streets wasn’t present there and it made the whole more relaxing experience a bit better. After an hour or so, the silver-haired man finally arrived at the front door of his own lodge, where the key was quickly placed inside in order to open up the door and take a quick shower before heading towards the bed. Due to the fact that the Uchiha tried making haste, the shower after the hot spring did not happen, and it was going to take place right now.
