Morning had come and was nearly gone on the streets of Kirigakure. It was fast approaching noon and the morning mist was lifting leaving only a thin veil in the streets letting one see at least shapes as far as the eye could see. The village itself was shrouded in mist at all hours but within the village the mist had a tendency to lift around noon. Most productivity outside was done around that time. People of course handled business as needed prior to but if it didn't need to be attended to it was left until such a time. The human mind associated mist with the unseen and the unseen was feared. Monsters just beyond the veil and blood dripping where drainage pipes let loose their waters. Of course most discounted this as paranoia. Left over fears from the war and the almost war. The civilians had not forgotten their strife over the last decade. Victims or survivors they knew that men were the true monsters out there. However they were learning something crucial to the survival of the village. Their shinobi were the most capable in the world. They would defend them and to any who would do them harm, vengeance would be without mercy and slow.

Of these the Kage was the most trusted and known. Her power evident and believed in. She had displayed it and even overcome death. None doubted she was the strongest in the world. Yet there were those who whispered of another. Were Ayakashi the light they followed like a beacon there was a man that was the shadow that light cast over. Brought to power partially because that light had burned so bright. Without light one could not know of the darkness. They whispered of a man no bandit survived, no murderer didn't fear, no pirate didn't sail clear of. They knew of his island and spoke of him like legends and myth and yet they knew he was real. The head of the Osada clan was man no living creature dared cross. If Ayakashi were ever to find herself pressed her second in command would press against that force and blood would spill. Yet so few knew his face. More rumor and tale told to child to keep them well behaved. Go to sleep or Sero will come for you. Sero comes for all the bad boys and girls. Don't stay out too late or Sero will hunt for you. In the end he didn't mind being the villages boogeyman. His work was to cast fear in the hearts of the cruel and his legend spreading did just that.

However his new position had forced him out of the seclusion of his island. Away from his reverie of studies and practice. Piles of scrolls studying sealing, sage mode, Ninjutsu and weapons all organized and put away for the time being. Instead he had been given a task and set about researching that. Now that the research was done he had business in the village and had made his way towards the administration building. His Grey cloak kept tight to him with Wolf fur running over his right shoulder and down his front and back on only the right side. His long hair shifting as if sunken under water as he seemed to glide along the pavement. The nearly departed fog rolling in with him like a blanket and though he attempted to suppress it without his anbu gear it felt to all on the street that a great beast had come to swallow them all up. As he moved down the street people avoided eye contact unsure of what Sero could be doing in town. Here and there some bowed but none met those cold eyes. Grey as the dead and never blinking. No weapon adorned his form and yet all knew a blade was never far from the man.

After he had passed the whispers began. Sero was in the village. This was a rare occasion. Nearly unheard of. Perhaps he was hunting some poor soul? Rumors spread over what possible person had incurred his wrath and yet he ignored them all. In his right hand was two files. Both thick in nature but marked with a seal. Two files that required a high rank to access. Only he and a couple of others including Ayakashi could open those files without them bursting into flame. He held them tightly in pale, long fingers as he approached one building in particular. Moving inside the administration building as if gliding. The dull murmur of day to day business sliding into dead silence as the doors creaked open. His form moving through like a specter as they watched him. Moving to the stairs and up them as a long held breath was released. Even his allies were careful of him. Still he would step onto the floor of the Mizukage's office and stand before the receptionist. Glancing at her as he spoke. His words dull and yet commanding her full attention as his eyes seemed to drown her within them in their empty pits if she stared too long.

"I require a moment in private with the lady Mizukage when she has a moment."

'As soon as he passed the precipice, the tone changed’

The twins who sat at the head of the administration building's first floor would look up as the man entered the building, while others in and around them would fall into a hushed silence, the two special jounin communication ninja would stand in near perfect synchronization and bow with utmost respect and humility at his presence, in almost the same manner as they would to the mizukage most mornings that she entered, at least at the beginning of her regime before her more relaxed nature became known to the two of them. Holding their position until they were spoken to, they rose after his words so they could give him all the attention that he deserved as a ninja of his station. Sero was no longer a boogyman hiding in the shadows of the village, he was the Mizukage's second, and the captain of the seven swordsman. While his legend in the light was young, it had already made waves that the captains' sword had been taken by the leader of the osada clan and the son of the former mizukage.

Though there was still some disconnect from the prodigal son that everyone knew to be Sero, and the masked leader and protector of the village who was a nightmare made manifest. Though slowly the two separate legends were molding together into a single masterwork. One of the twins would speak up quickly in reply to his words, not wanting to keep the man waiting a second longer than he needed to. "Yes Master Osada! I'll contact her immediately sir." While there was definitely some degree of fear in her tone, most of it was simply respect of his station more than the fear of his reputation. Obviously Ayakashi had spoken to her receptionists in great detail about the decision and they were on the same page as her about the whole thing. While the one twin retreated to deliver the message to Ayakashi, the other would step up to the plate. "Master Osada, would there be anything I could get for you in the meantime? Perhaps a tea to your liking or anything else you require?"

'Meanwhile...'

Ayakashi herself was in her office when she received word that Sero was calling for her. Looking out to the horizon, she grabbed her things and told the ninja that it was fine and that she would begin to make her way to the Osada mansion soon, assuming that the invitation was sent for her to meet him at his usual abode. It was then that the correction called in. "Uhh, no ma'am, he's here in the administration foyer asking for you in person." There were a few emotions that ran through the Mizukage's head at this point, surprise and confusion being the first, before a sly smile as she could only imagine the stir that he would have caused downstairs showing up out of the blue, especially if he bought one of his spider-lings with him.The thought almost made Ayakashi cackle in mirth before telling them to send up the captain, saying that she was free now and to bring up tea.

Acknowledging the request they did as they were told, and tea was bought to the room quickly by servants in the area in a platter with assorted loose leaf formulations as well as milk, whiskey, honey, and other essentials of tea making. As Sero entered the room, Ayakashi would stand in greeting, another sign of respect as she would offer him a seat and not sit until he did. Albiet a small gesture, Ayakashi was glad to finally be dealing with someone she honestly considered on her level.

"Sero, Welcome! It's nice to see you. So tell me, how are you finding your new life in the light?"

Although the question was a little mundane, it was a start to things, she knew that Sero was not likely the most social of people, but it was a skill that he was going to at least be able to pretend to do should he come into power as the next Mizukage. Ayakashi wondered what had bought him in, but she was sure he would be explaining that shortly, he did seem the kind to want to move to the point of matters quickly and Ayakashi would await him doing so, pouring herself a tea in the mean-time and offering him one if he looked at all interested. Using fruit based ingrediants, Ayakashi would pour the steaming hot water over them as she added a couple of mint-leaves for that nice after-taste. Finally, with a touch of her steel clad fingers she would flow her chakra into the glass, cooling the liquid near freezing into a refreshing iced tea which she would sip happily in the mean time as she would listen to what the master of the Osada Clan had to say.

Sero would let his grey gaze fall upon the twins. For the most part he didn't appear to let his eyes waver from that point. He did not blink or shift in any way outside of his graceful steps forward towards the two. Yet to everyone else within the room it was like those dead grey orbs studied their souls. As if his gaze encompassed them and swallowed them whole. Daring them to speak a lie. To utter a single false sound. Breathing caught in throats as he would be made real. A figment of rumor and legend walking in front of them. They had heard stories but surely walking among his presence couldn't be so terrifying. He hadn't expected this level of formality himself. His mind still partially accustomed to being just another shinobi doing his duty. His station never really gathering his attention as perhaps it should. He was focused on being a formidable man in the battle field. Politics never really being his specialty. He inspired fear of death and agony in his enemies. It was considered poor form to do so in politics he had been informed. Still he would pause in front of the twins. His head inclined ever so slightly as his eyes studied them blankly. The feeling of a starved beast examining his next meal as his words rang out as dry as leaves in autumn.

One of them would speak in reply to his request as if an order had been issued. Prompt and obedient. He could respect these twins for those features. That aside they were very useful to the mizukage and had survived a great deal having stood next to her. Their service even longer than his own. Their records and capabilities were not to be so easily discarded. Still the one would leave and slowly his eyes would follow them. Studying their movements and keeping a record of it as he did with all things in his mind. Already debating how they might preform in combat and how to defeat them. As he had done with the entire room when he entered. Never leaving such things to chance. Each visual person accounted for. There were others hidden he was sure. Even from his expert gaze without the use of jutsu it was possible. It mattered little since most the scenarios involved him being attacked in mass. In which case he would eliminate the entire room in a moments notice. However his thoughts were snapped to the other as his eyes snapped back to the other twin almost viciously. Speaking after a moment of studying them again.

"My scheduled diet has already been attended to. I am fine thank you."


It was only a moment before his request for entrance was accepted. He was guided up to the office and allowed in where he found Ayakashi standing. Waiting for him with a smile on her face. He was finding the formality of it all so odd and new. However he had always found the way she accepted him to be odd. Always granting him responsibility and when he passed another marker granting him one more step closer to his dream. Now that he had found it he felt so odd. A king of his own domain in a way and yet unfamiliar with it. One thing was sure. He would focus on this new duty diligently and defend it. Still his new station did not put him on the same level or above it of that of the Mizukage in his mind. His bow was still low enough to be one of respect. Even the captain of the seven would show respect when due. Still he would take the offered seat before her and listen as she spoke. His grey eyes watching her. An occasional slow and methodical blink now and then to keep his eyes moistened. She would finish speaking and offer him tea but he would shake his head no and hold up his free hand. The other placing two files down in front of him on the desk between them. A glowing blue seal made of sage chakra that she should recognize as a layer of security. One ready to respond to her chakra and unlock the folders. Still his pale hand would retreat from the folder as both his hands returned to his form. Fingers interlocking before he rested them on his chest. Speaking in a tone that was cold but calm. No anger or really any emotion in his voice.

"The light has proven revealing. There is not much change in my day to day however I hear rumor of some older enemies packing up and moving out of our borders. It appears given my new station they fear being made example of. Mere speculation but a purpose well served. I did not come here so much for discussion on how to settle into this new role however as I did to fulfill it. You gave me a task and this my dear leader is the first step."
