Maigo sat back down in the chair, only a moment after Lin stumbled into her bathroom, a smile still on his face as he glanced around the room. There wasn't... anything to distract him while Lin was getting ready, other than potentially snooping around or trying to distract her. Well, he wouldn't do that but his left Maigo in an interesting predicament with his own thoughts and well... that was pretty much it. He wasn't completely comfortable sitting around in her apartment by any means, his legs stretched out a bit in front of him as he slumped slightly into the seat.

He held his arms over, pulling on the sleeves a little bit, trying to get them to cover further of his wrists, after a few minutes of toying with them, he surrendered again with a sigh. He yawned a bit, swaying his legs back and forth a bit, and then moving into a pure stretching motion, reaching his arms around him in front of him and feeling the muscles pull and tense up. Then shrinking back into the seat again with an exhale, he was loose now, and still needed to find something to bide his time.

Maigo let his head fall back on the back rest of the couch, his hair fell behind it and he lazily let his eyes trace around the ceiling of the apartment. He crossed his arms over his chest and let his eyes close a bit, still shaking his legs he began to... call it, meditate. Of course, he wasn't sleeping or anything of the sort but instead was letting his imagination run behind closed eyes. The first thing his mind ran to... was the festival itself, imagining a beautiful and dressed up Lin around his arm and smiling. His mind couldn't focus on anything else, he tried to shift his focus around to different events and people. But nothing came to mind, his very reason for ending up in Kumo sort of faded into the background entirely while he thought through his situation.

This bit of self-introspection continued on for a brief time before Maigo opened his eyes if Lin wouldn't emerge at the ready before then, still looking up towards the ceiling and letting out a sigh. He wondered how long had passed, he lost track of it and didn't carry a watch or anything on his person. He wondered next, how close to ready Lin would be and how close to the festival itself they were getting. A book would have definitely been a better way to spend his time than just sitting around here.

It was a weird thing, she hadn't told him about the television, but she usually had her guests help themselves to the T.V. when they were there. Just because Maigo was a guest, didn't mean that he was like the other guests though.

She put her hair into two braids that started at her temple and went around the back of her head. She tied them together with a hair tie and put a couple of decorative hair sticks into her hair. One of them had a blue bell attached. Next came her nails, painted the color of her eyes, and the color of the flowers on her kimono. She put on a deep blue eye shadow and put on eyeliner and mascara to make her eyes really pop. She hoped that Maigo would approve.

Next came the makeup, trying to hide her scar with it, she put some on, and sighed, it didn't help, and she just got frustrated. Wiping it off and grumbling to herself, she finished putting on the eyeliner of her right eye and tied her kimono on tight. Taking a kabuki mask, one that was the face of a cat, she tied it to the side of her head and walked out, holding a purse that matched her dress.

"Finished!" She exclaimed to the very bored, and very tired it seemed, Maigo, "Sorry to have kept you waiting." She had her hands folded neatly in front of her. They had missed the opening ceremony by about twenty minutes, but she knew they would still have fun.

Maigo rotated his neck, cracking a few of the bones, feeling the expansion and collapsing of his chest as he breathed, his head leaned back a bit. He heard small noises and bumps from Lin getting ready, but he'd stayed mostly silent himself. Then, the sound of an opening door came up, his eyes rotated down towards it and his head moved up with them. "Finished!" she emerged, seemingly ready to go, holding her purse, dressed up, and a mask tied onto her head. Maigo stood up almost instantly, his eyes widened as he looked her and her beauty over, and to no understatement. "Wow..." Maigo uttered lightly to himself as he stepped forward a bit, hardly audible even to himself. "Sorry to have kept you waiting." Maigo let her comment go almost completely as his mind ended up wandering to.. other things, focusing on her for the moment.

"Wow..." he etched on again, this time audible, his own golden eyes focused on her own light blue eyes intently. "You look... incredible..." he smiled, his mouth had been held a bit ajar, wondering how he'd been lucky enough to have her on a date with him. Especially considering most of his other attempts at flattery, flirting, or his oh-so-wonderous pick up lines usually ended up with him being punched and knocked clean out or through/over/into any variety of furniture and buildings. It was a slight change of pace, to not have that but he'd behaved extraordinarily well so far, outside of occasional jokes and the like. Perhaps it was because he fancied Lin more so than just the ordinary girl he found on the street, they connected a bit more than strangers would, but the intricacies and analysis of that psychology could be spared for now.

He was serious though, he did think that she looked beautiful, his mouth agape and his smile persisting as he closed the gap between them in the room, stopping a few feet away. "You know... I don't think it's possible for me to show you up anymore..." he laughed a bit and held his smile while trying to maintain eye contact.

A brief pause later and he'd chime in again, re-composing himself as best he could, "So, you ready to go or do you need to get anything else? I'm not sure if we're late or anything yet, but you seemed to be kinda eager." he paused and offered a bit of a suggestive smile, a sort of taunt at her urgency to leave.

"Wow..." Maigo said, after mouthing it once and leaving his mouth ajar. It was enough to make her blush, well at least once before his golden eyes focused on her own light blue eyes intently. It was enough to intensify the blush and make her look down and tap her wooden sandal against the floor in embarrassment. "You look... incredible..." he smiled, and she wondered if he would continue to stare at her throughout the night. It was nice to be at the center of his attention, but she was unused to it. It made her feel a bit on the spot, but she didn't know that she didn't completely hate it. Well, she didn't hate it, she knew that, but she wasn't... Well she was flustered. She let out a sigh and smiled and managed a very small, "Thank you."

Maigo closed the gap, and all of the bravado from before faded into a nervous cinching and uncinching of her bag. It was a nervous tick that she got when she was close to a guy that she thought was cute. And he had eyes only for her right now, which felt strangely good. Foreign though it was, it was nice. "You know... I don't think it's possible for me to show you up anymore..." he laughed and she giggled, the moment of awkwardness broken with a smile from her as she locked eyes with him. "Well that merchant seemed to want to take you home. I can only assume that he wanted to do all sorts of things with you." She smirked and leaned against him for a moment.

"So, you ready to go or do you need to get anything else? I'm not sure if we're late or anything yet, but you seemed to be kinda eager." He taunted her a bit, well, she could taunt back. Or at least she thought that she could. "Well, I was thinking that we could just stay here while I get ready for the festival for the entire time rather than going to some silly festival. Does that sound like it is a good idea? A sly smile of her own dancing across her face.

Maigo chuckled at her comment about the merchant, a bit embarrassed he rubbed the back of his neck and spoke up, "Yeah, I could only imagine..." he kinda ignored the sentiment behind it and tried to let the thought go as quickly as possible. Lin leaned against him and let an arm reach around to her far shoulder, offering a smile after his laugh.

Her next reply came with a bit of a smile, also stopping Maigo a bit dead in his tracks, "Well, I was thinking that we could just stay here while I get ready for the festival for the entire time rather than going to some silly festival. Does that sound like it is a good idea?" He watched the smile dance across her face as he thought to himself with a bit of a hum and his own smile, leaning into her some this time but still holding his balance. "I don't know if it's a... good idea, but it's tempting..." he paused for a second and stood up straight.

"But, I think we should go! For at least a little while..." he moved behind her slightly, lowering his head level to hers and hovering over her shoulder, bringing his arm around her and placing it across her to her opposite shoulder as if he were hugging her. With his left hand, he would hold it out and wave it across the wall of her apartment as if he were painting some picture for her to see. "Think about it, I'll get to show you off and people will comment stuff like, 'Hey, look how beautiful that guy's girlfriend is!' or 'I wish I looked as good as her' or whatever else people say..." he laughed a bit at his own sort of eccentricism about it before continuing on.

With a pause he would unwrap from around her and stand back up without stepping forward, "Besides, I've got a goal of earning that second date anyhow!" he smiled, "But it's up to you I guess, I'm really just here to hang out with you, so if you don't want to go then we don't have to." He spoke and left with a genuine smile, waiting to hear her reaction, he had no qualms either way so the decision would really fall to her.

"I'm only kidding of course, I have been waiting for this festival for a long, long time. Come on!" She grabbed his arm and locked the door behind her. She would smile and grip him tight, pointing to the lights, and the boom of fireworks and laughter. "There, that's where we're headed, why don't you lead us there, Maigo-kuuuun?" She drew out the last word and leaned a bit more on his arm, pressing her cheek to his arm in the process and giggling.

She wondered how he would react, as she had seen other girls do this and their men get flustered. She hoped that it would have the same effect, as she found it hilarious and sweet at the same time. She couldn't wait, she admitted to herself, to get to the festival, but she might as well enjoy the moment that she had with Maigo before becoming entangled in the bowels of the festival.

The churning masses would be slow moving, and the festival would be loud, but everywhere there were games, activities being held, and all. The event going on at the moment was the opening ceremony and the people were filing in through the gates, paying their dues to get in, and picking up fliers... The time was 3:16, they had missed the announcements, but were not late if they got in within the next half hour to see the theater.

Apparently it was about a leacherous priest that wooed a princess, stole away with her in the night, and revealed himself to be a con-artist. It was a sort of comedy, because a young daimyo, looking for a wife, happens upon the two, and ends up persuading the priest to marry the two by tricking him.

She hummed happily as they walked, unless Maigo made conversation. Barely, if even able to keep herself from skipping for the excitement of the situation. She had a date!

Maigo smiled in response as he was pulled by the arm and out the door, waiting as Lin locked it behind them. Luckily, he had everything he needed on his person already, the wooden sandals clacked against the floor with each step he walked, noticing the difference in the sound of his steps compared to his normal sandals. Lin pointed out to the fireworks and sounds of the festival, "There, that's where we're headed, why don't you lead us there, Maigo-kuuuun?" she expanded the last word and leaned against him, pressing her cheek into his arm. Maigo rather blinked, his immediate thought being, well... they're late.

But his second thought was more of him blinking, a bit confused at what was happening and turning a little red as she held so tightly to his arm, "Huh? Right... yeah, let's go..." he slowly composed himself and offered a smile and began to take a few steps forward, bringing Lin in tow if she remained latched to his arm. He didn't really have any clue where he was going, his bit of redness would remain as long as Lin was with him. Maigo's goal was to just sort of turn and walk in straight lines towards the sound of commotion and... eventually they would find their way. Though, he figured if he took a serious wrong turn somewhere, Lin would point it out quickly, unless she wanted to wander around aimlessly for a while.

He found her humming as they walked a bit adorable, he didn't want to really ruin it, just happy to walk alongside her for a bit, but he would interrupt anyways. "Lin..." he would speak up, his head turned towards her to catch her attention, "You said that you've been waiting a long, long time for this festival, what'd you mean by that?" he figured he'd ask. It wasn't exactly a deep or revealing question, but it was recent and weighed on his mind briefly, it would also hopefully reveal a little more of what he was walking into. Though, immediately after he'd brought it up, he figured he should have started with something else like finding out what her last name was, or something like that. Really peculiar that he hadn't asked that up to this point, but that's Maigo, playing the fool...

They made their way though the crowd, well, with the crowd into the right area. The din started to get louder and louder as they approached, and the cool air of the afternoon started to give way to the warmth of a huddle mass of people. There were people strewn about every which way, and even the alleys were packed with people sitting down and discussing things while laughing. Everyone seemed to be wearing a smile, and Lin was not any exception to the rule.

"What did I mean by that..." She mused, taking a hold of her chin with her arm interlocked around his, she thought about it. She had been promised by Mifune that they would visit a festival, that was last year. She had invited Satoshi to go to a festival with her about half of a year ago, and that had flopped. She didn't have anyone to go with her, so she opted for staying at home, hanging up her dress again and sighing. It was a sad memory and it made her frown for a second, a crack in the gaiety of the evening.

"Well..." She started off slowly, "The last time that I went to a festival was when I was twelve. There have been opportunities that have arisen the last couple of years, but none of them has... well... panned out. I was a bit nervous that tonight would happen much the same as the last times." She gave him a smile, the tension gone from her brow, as she squeezed his arm close to her chest, "But now I have a date with a really cute guy." She giggled, "And I just want tonight to be special." She nodded.

Indeed, the last time that she had been to the festival she had been about 13 or so. She had just gotten to the age where she applied her own makeup and that night she had tried to run around the maze with some of her academy peers. They had cornered her and threw water balloons at her, making her makeup run. As soon as her makeup did, they all laughed and called her "the sad clown of Kumogakure" and other such names. The hedge maze was a bit of a sore spot in her memory, but she wanted to make new memories there, ones that would expunge the old ones. "I especially can't wait for the Hedge Maze." She said, giving a small nod, the bell tied to one of the sticks in her hair ringing. She looked around for the source of the noise, having forgotten it was there, and it jingled again.

The two made their way into and through the crowds as Maigo all but stumbled his way through, not paying much attention to anyone else but instead of the places and buildings around them. Lin held onto his arm as she thought about his question for a minute, placing a hand to her chin in a bit of theatrics, at least, Maigo thought so and smiled in return. "Well... The last time that I went to a festival was when I was twelve. There have been opportunities that have arisen the last couple of years, but none of them has... well... panned out. I was a bit nervous that tonight would happen much the same as the last times." Maigo nodded in the middle of her speech, a simple answer that he kinda shrugged off.

Instead, Lin pulled his arm into her and smiled as she continued on, "But now I have a date with a really cute guy. And I just want tonight to be special." she laughed, Maigo's face had turned a bit red, as he glanced ahead, scratching his cheek with a finger. For all of his bravado and braggadocio he still found himself getting nervous at the slightest bit of compliment or affection. "Just cute, huh?... Thanks." he offered quietly after a moment with that bashful face of his still going. Combined with a small laugh and a smile, leaning towards her some. Part of him wanted to make more of a joke of being 'cute' rather than handsome or some other grandeur adjective for himself, but the thought hardly crossed his mind. Finding for whatever reason, to take her compliment more genuinely than he would have most other people.

"I especially can't wait for the Hedge Maze." she added after a moment, Maigo's eyes and ears perked up as he remembered. She had a list of some kind, a few things that she wanted to do, but for the life of him, he was forgetting about it. The maze was one, something about lanterns maybe? That would be wracking around in his brain for a while now, but he kept that confused and thoughtful look off his face as much as he could, instead commenting up to cover over his sudden... awakening? "Right, so did you want to go there first or save that for later? I think I remember there being a show or something earlier on if you wanted to do that?" he paused to see her response, or general reaction. "That or we can show off some at some of the carnival games and all, besides, kunai and senbon throwing? How could two jonin ever lose at that?!" he chuckled a bit. Really, he was just throwing ideas out there as they approached their location, the dull roar of the crowd grew slightly as they got closer.

That would be until it reached its peak, and the festival would start to open up down the road, different rides and stuff visible at a distance off and becoming clearer with each step. The booth at front to offer them their tickets, or wristbands, or stamp their hands or whatever method wasn't far off, prompting Maigo to begin walking straight for it, bringing Lin in tow. Preparing to grab his ryo to pay for them to get in whenever they got close enough to the booth and the festival itself.

Well, there was something about him that made her feel giddy. He had a good sense of humor, even if it was a bit corny. He said "Just cute huh?" even though he seemed to think that it was a good compliment as he blushed. She hugged him closer as she mentioned the maze and he asked her what she wanted to do. She could wait for the hedge maze. Well, open your mouth and tell him... but he also wanted to go around and do some carnival games. That sounded good to her. The other was more of a... spectator sport. She knew that Maigo liked to be active, or seemed to like to be active. Actually, she didn't know much about him.

That made her blush and clear her throat, "Err, would you rather be up and moving or would you rather sit and watch the play? It is called 'The Ero Priest' and is supposed to be a comedy." She smiled and looked up to him as they were almost to the gate. "I like doing carnival games, but I wasn't very good at them last time that I was here." She giggled, "Though that is probably not true any more." She looked at him as he said "Jounin" with a bit of a tilt to her head. She wasn't a Jounin. She was a Special Jounin. She opened her mouth to correct him but shut it as quickly as it opened. She didn't want to push him away from her any on this date. It was something that would correct itself if he ever went on a mission with her.

They finally reached the gates, and the question hung in the air, what would they do. The woman that was asking for the admission fee had a smile plastered to her face, more of a grimace that she didn't want to be there, but would rather be somewhere else asked them for their ryo fee. Lin reached towards her ryo pouch and started to dig for the entrance fee. The woman probably wasn't to blame, it wasn't her fault that she wanted to, well, partake in the festival most likely rather than just being an admissions clerk. People who worked at these sort of events tended to not enjoy them as much as the people that went to them. The exception seemed to be the carnival games that were run by the vendors here.

Maigo listened as she cleared her throat and responded, "Err, would you rather be up and moving or would you rather sit and watch the play? It is called 'The Ero Priest' and is supposed to be a comedy." He looked around, he hadn't really thought about it as a form of... activity? Sitting and watching a play or walking around and testing out carnival games, it didn't matter much to him really. However, what did enter his mind was the idea of taking her to see some play called 'The Ero Priest' a partial biography of a pious Maigo perhaps? He imagined he'd find it funny but would it be appropriate to go with Lin to see? In his mind, the more chivalrous and appropriate thing to do would be to avoid it altogether and steer clear of the subject. He didn't want his third first impression to end up being soiled by how much of a perverted fool he actually was, and he had done so well thus far! No, no reason to ruin it now, even if it would be pretty funny to sit through.

They approached the gate even further as she continued on, "I like doing carnival games, but I wasn't very good at them last time that I was here. Though that is probably not true any more." she giggled at the thought. Maigo smiled back, if it really had been a while then she might be a little better, he almost thought about challenging her to some of the games, seeing how well it would work out. Maigo nodded his head as they approached the teller, Maigo took the lead here, pulled out the few coins needed to pay their entry before Lin could. Turning his head with a bit of a mischievous smile growing across his face, being handed back two wristbands with some pattern on them in exchange, Maigo motioned for Lin to hold out her wrist so he could place it on before working around to his own. Of course, she could take it and do it herself but the oddly smiling Maigo was just trying to be helpful in any way he could for the moment.

Once that was taken care of, he would lead them on into the carnival, speaking up as they took their first steps in, remembering to avoid the more inappropriate topics as best he could. He would speak up with a bit of a nervous hitch, "Well, I think the carnival games would be a more fun introduction, but we will be on our feet for a while so if you want to relax to start, that's fine by me..." he would offer the choice. He supposed the play was fine if she wanted to, and she could lead the way to it. He'd look to Lin to hear her decision out, or whatever other suggestions she might have.

But! Should the path of the different games and booths be taken, Maigo would continue taking the lead and bring her through the crowd to the first of many stands. The first one on their right side, a simple kunai throwing game. A few standard targets like 5 meters away. It would be easy!

"Well." Lin giggled, "It really doesn't matter to me." She started to follow him, since he seemed to want to do the games. She had seen something like the Ero Priest before, and it really didn't hold her interest that much. Laughing would be good, but so would getting out her nervousness with the Kunai tossing or some other activity.

She clung to him loosely, placing his arm in the middle of her chest as she started to look at the paper lanterns that adorned the streets. At dark they would be lit, making it seem as if it were an eternal sunset, she couldn't wait, and couldn't help but giggle at the prospect of being in such a romantic place with a handsome man. The shopkeep that had sold them the kimono had his arm around the waist of another man, one with short white hair and yellow eyes, who was laughing at something that another couple of men were saying.

It was a good thing that they were there, with so much laughter and people around, it really energized Lin. She was led to the kunai throwing game. The kunai just sitting on the table, with a bored looking youth, no doubt waiting for the real owner of the stand’s return, looking boredly as people threw kunai at the target. Some of them were older, about 60, some of them about 5, and some were Lin and Maigo’s age. Most people hit the target with the back, side, or blade of the kunai, not getting them to stick. Most people could hit the target but getting the rotations down was something that took practice, skill, and sometimes a bit of luck.

Admittedly, Lin was better at throwing Senbon than Kunai, as they were lighter and she had more finessable ability with them. However, as they approached, she couldn’t help but feel excited for the prospect of playing the game. There were prizes, from goldfish for 1 kunai in the margins, to 5 kunai in the bullseye which gave the person a giant-sized plushie. Lin stared at the Giant white kitten, with blue eyes, her eyes almost as big as the plushie’s.

Maigo brought them along as Lin loosely held onto his arm he smiled in response to her bit about not really mattering what they did. He glanced down towards her, "Alright then, let's do some carnival games for a while until... whatever the next thing is." he chuckled a bit, not knowing what time it was or what the next event of the festival was. As they approached the stand there was an apathetic looking kid monitoring the stand, Maigo would slow down gradually as they approached and watched as a few people threw the kunai the distance, some hitting and falling away, missing entirely, or rotating in air to land no where.

The stand itself had a lot of kunai sitting in a row on it, different colors and such, they didn't appear very sharp at first glance, not like the real kunai that Maigo used. There was one person left throwing that managed to get one to stick within the black circle marking the bulls-eye. The kid walked away with a goldfish in a little bag and was seemingly happy by it, Maigo chuckled, not caring much for the prizes. He'd wait for the kid to hop away, standing a few feet back, "You up for it? I'll pay for this one but what do you say loser pays for the next?" he gave a bit of a devious smile and leaned against her some waiting for a response, wondering if she would take his little challenge or not. His hand reaching down to grab a little more ryo, not knowing how much the stand itself even cost.

Lin looked from the big cat to Maigo, back to the big cat, back to Maigo and nodded. She kept her want for the plushie secret and smiled. The youth kicked off of the wall and sortof... oozed? Oozed would be a good word for how this youth moved. He Oozed over to the counter with the two. Lin looked him up and down, he held out his hand as she did so and said, "Ten Ryo." With all of the excitement of a mid-funeral speech. Lin looked to Maigo as he paid for the kunai throwing and she took up her kunai.

The blades were dull, and so were the points, which actually would make it more of a challenge than her own kunai to throw. She sighed and looked at the target, calculating which end she would have to hold. See, the trick was in the rotation. "So if I win, you pay for me again?" She smirked, a flash of mischievous lightning passing through the blue orbs she had for eyes. It was time to get serious. Though, she looked anything but in her cute kimono.

To tell the truth, she hadn't had much chance to practice with kunai since she was in the academy. The last time that she had thrown a kunai... well that was when she had been on a mission, before meeting Satoshi. She hadn't seen him in a while. a flash of wonder pierced her mind. Where was he now? What was he doing? She hoped that he was well, and wanted to wish him well.

The piece of metal in her hand brought her back to the present. She threw her first kunai, it stuck out of the middle, and a smirk of triumph painted itself across her face. She looked at him and quirked a playful brow. The bullseye must have only been about six inches across, and hitting one of the kunai already in the board would spell as much a miss as hitting one of the outer circles. It would get progressively harder as they went on. It would be a good practice for Lin, using Kunai again. Perhaps she would purchase more senbon, or kunai, when she was done.

She giggled and tossed one of the kunai up, catching it with one of the other kunai, and tossing that chain up, then catching both of those and twirling all three before tossing them up and catching them one by one. Who said a little intimidation wouldn't win her the game?

"Another game of this, or did you want to try a different game after?" She smiled once more, the smile holding a playfulness she hadn't felt in years. A playfulness that she almost forgot that she had. It was good to have it back. It felt like an old friend that she had lost, a good friend that she hadn't seen in a while. Almost as if when she embraced it that she felt more... more like herself.

Who knew, maybe if she got enough practice she could take the Raikage's seat. She didn't have very fond memories of the training session with him. She had gone with Satoshi to the tower that was still under construction at the time, and she had to climb it. She braved the guards, braved the lightning, braved the bravado of the Raikage. He seemed... aloof, that he thought that he was better than her and Toshi during that time. it was... it was a bit unsettling if she admitted it to herself. She growled as she tossed the next kunai up in the air. It was a grumbled of challenge to the unseen Raikage. She didn't need to have him here to challenge him. Perhaps she could take his throne if he stepped down. She was as qualified as anyone. Well, perhaps Syn would be more qualified, but she was qualified enough to know what she was doing at least.

She gave Maigo a reassuring smile, she didn't want to growl at him directly, not on their date. "What... what do you think of the Raikage?" She asked, giving him a quizzical look. She wanted to know, truthfully. Her own disdain was barely veiled, and it would have not taken an ANBU to tell that she wasn't... wasn't very trusting of her commander in chief.
