Sunadokei tried to stifle a giggle at Kuramitsu's worry, listening to his slightly panicked tone at what he was contemplating. "Oh fine, be like that Kura. You know you nap too damn much as is, For the record they certainly aren't a necessity. You could do just fine without them, you just need to go to bed at a reasonable hour and get plenty of sleep." She sighed at his joke, shaking her head slightly in mild annoyance. "Ideally the village doesn't need a laziness side. If everyone were more diligent and less lazy, we'd get a lot more done around here." Kura's ruthless sense of laziness was his worst feature, Sunadokei mused. It was rather endearing, but she thought he had so much more potential he was failing to life up to. He could be outright brilliant at times, but usually he was so inclined to take the easy way out of things that Kura never seemed to hit his stride.
"Good. I like the sound of that." Sunadokei said with a sage like quality to her voice, nodding despite the fact Kuramitsu couldn't see it as she clung to his back. "I'm gonna hold you to those words, and really start focusing on our training. Got it? No more Mr. Lazy Nara... well, unless I'm full, or stuffed, or sleepy myself. Then we can nap, but only if it's someplace comfy and warm." The curvaceous kunoichi herself was also somewhat predisposed to laziness, though her greater sin tended to be gluttony, not sloth. Still, sleep came naturally after a full belly, especially when she was known to gorge herself to the point it diminished her agility somewhat. There was no better feeling that sleeping off a full round belly under the shade of a nice big tree.
As the duo arrived at the top Sunadokei hopped down from her friend, giving him a light punch on the shoulder. "Ten to one odds huh? You're getting really ambitious aren't you Kura." She knew well enough he was doomed against her in any contest of pure physical ability. The Akimichi woman was far more durable, and possessed significantly more physical strength in spite of appearances. She could be rather deceptive, few people would expect a woman with breasts far larger than her own head to punch harder than a man rippling with muscle. Sometimes Sunadokei amazed even herself, though it wasn't often. "We'll always have each other's backs Kura. That's just who we are, and you're my shadow after all." A warm smiled followed the statement, and Sunadokei looked tenderly into her friend's deep brown eyes, or rather, the squints in his face where his eyes lie hidden. He never seemed to have his eyes wide open unless he was surprised or in pain, usually both at once.
Sunadokei moved beside Kura and joined him in looking out over the edge of the Hokage Mountain, letting out a long exhale of air as she watched the city below. Their clones could be seen darting throughout the streets far below, hers more so than his. Kura's agile clones had his black hair, black long coat, and dark grey tunic. They basically blended right in with the rooftops themselves. Sunadokei's however, were clad in her purple kimono and showing a lot of skin. It was... significantly easier to pick out her alabaster skin against the purple fabric wrapped snug around her bosoms. She looked a bit like a very curvy grape from above, topped in a stem of blue hair. The thought made her blush slightly to herself for once. She grinned at Kura's joke, a slight smile crossing her fair heart shaped face. "Even for you, I gotta admit it was clever. And you're right, there is something about being up here. Looking out over the village, and the forests beyond. It makes you feel like part of something so much bigger than just yourself..."
The woman's speech was cut off by words from a child, his voice soft and feeble, like he'd just got done crying to himself. Two words exited Kura's lips, and Sunadokei nodded in agreement. "Yeah, you did. I suppose I won't be needing these anymore then." She said, forming a hand sign and releasing her clones. Instantly her mind was flooded with everything they'd experienced in their time away from her. From the crunch of leaves beneath their feet, to the smell of fresh cooked ramen wafting down a lonely city street. She'd crack a joke on low market prices on second street, but now wasn't the time for that. Sunadokei's mood became more somber upon hearing the boy's words. Kura spoke first, which gave the Akimichi woman much needed time to think. These were sensitive matters, best handled delicately. The last thing she wanted was to make the boy feel worse, he'd already run away from home after all.
Stepping closer Sunadokei extended her arms, a motherly look in her eye as she pulled the boy close into a tender hug. Smothering against her bust she held him close. "Honey, I'm so sorry. I can't even imagine how hard that is for you." The boy stammered, not expecting the warm embrace. "Miss..." He said simply, squirming against Sunadokei's affectionate grip. "SSsshhh. It's ok." She replied simply, and the child seemed to calm down slightly. "What's your name sweety?" Came her next question, as she cradled the boy's head against her shoulder. "Kanashimi... Miss." Sunadokei sighed a brief sigh, "Kanashimi. That's a lovely name. Kana this is Kuramitsu Nara, and I'm Sunadokei Akimichi. Kura is right though, your parents are worried sick Kana. They put out a Mission for your safe return, they must really miss you, since they paid a C-Rank price. Usually a lost child is only a D-Rank, if even that."
Kanashimi looked up into the buxom genin's eyes, tears welling in his own. "Really? Mom and Dad did that?" Sunadokei nodded knowingly, squeezing him lovingly. "They did. They miss you Kana, and they want to see their little boy safe and home in their arms. I can't tell you how to deal with loss, but I'm sure your older brother was a great man. You need to be strong for him, and help your parents get through his loss. You owe him that much, and he wouldn't want you to hurt your parents even more by running away." Kanashimi's eyes began to heavily water. Sunadokei's own began to tear up a bit. "Kana, do you wanna go home?" The boy tried to reply, but his lip only succeeded in trembling as he began to speak. Immediately the boy began to cry loudly, tears streaming down his face as he clutched Sunadokei tight against him, squeezing his arms into the flesh of her massive bust like a pair of huge comforting pillows, his face buried against them. Sunadokei rubbed his back, patting it tenderly and rising slowly to stand, cradling the boy close against her as he cried. "It's ok Kana. Let it all out, we'll get you home." Turning to face Kuramitsu, she blinked away her own tears, her soft gaze becoming steely and focused. "Come on Kura, let's get him home."
