Hina was out exploring the wilderness. She had wanted to get to know the surroundings of Konoha which sure enough consisted of trees trees and more trees. For all intents and purposes she had gotten lost and had been lost for several days now. Being completely unfamiliar with this neck of the woods, Hina only knew that that the area was directly east of the village. The only problem was that she hadn’t seen the village in days. Hina didn’t have much difficulty for the first few days but now she was low on food and was getting desperate. It was for this reason that she was extremely happy to find a clearing with a house, farm and a large shack. There were plenty of crops to feast on but Hina was a little too ethical for that. She knocked on the door and politely asked the farmer for some food after explaining her situation. The farmer gave a deep sigh and agreed, inviting Hina into his home. Inside, Hina met his five kids and his wife.

While Hina ate, she learned a little about them. They were pretty depressed because they only had a few days left to harvest and their tools were broken. Because they lived so far away it would take too long for them to go to town, get a smith, and return to repair everything in time to harvest. Hina asked why they didn’t just repair the tools themselves then they told that they tried but their workshop had fallen into disrepair. It seemed like everything that could have possibly gone wrong had indeed gone wrong for the family this harvest. “That’s why I don’t mind letting you eat your fill. It’s all going to go to waste anyways so you might as well have some.” Hina felt very bad for this family and was determined to help them since they helped her. She didn’t know very much about tool repair but maybe if she fixed up their workshop they could make some progress.

Hina announced her intentions and said that she was duty bound to at least repair the workshop through her bond with helping people. Hina stayed sitting down at the eating table and spent much of her time before sleep trying to think of a good plan for what needed to be done. She had learned more particulars about the situation and had some time to work out a schedule. She supposed the first step was to clean out the workshop then fixing the tools then helping with the harvest then she could finally go home. Hina ran the plan by the family and they started to look hopeful. The family started preparations and said that they could handle the harvest part on their own and that Hina should just focus on doing what she does best. So she did. She went out to assess the condition of the workshop and figure out what needed to be fixed up before they could head into town. There was a wagon in disrepair and a lot of the harvesting tools were so warped that it was no wonder that they hadn’t even started harvesting yet. Clearly they had lost all hope this season.

The young lady finally got to work, and she could still feel the effects of the chakra that she had allowed to linger around. her body relaxed and her expression was happy. she had gotten to the point where her idea of soothing was just as good as being able to sleep. she knew that the way to make someone sleep was to get them to feel secure and to make them feel at peace, and that was the beginning step. Being a shinobi she was in tune with the subtle rythms around her and they were putting her to sleep despite her wanting to keep working. The girl slapped herself to keep attention and griped the handle of a spade until her hand throbbed with pain.

She brought a hammer to the metal part of the spade once again and kept on working. This time making herself go a bit faster, creating a more upbeat melody to keep her awake. The damn thing was nearly flat after years of abuse and it needed to be rounded again so that it could actually scoop something up. After a few minutes, the girl had finally gotten the gist of the banging away on this particular spade, but she knew that to be able to keep attentive she’d have to wrap this up and move onto the next harvesting tool. For simple stuff like this she would not allow any mistakes, and any mistakes would result in a break in concentration and she’d certainly pay for that.

As Hina worked, her subconcious also wanted to help. It wanted to call from help from one of the many children in the home. Hina felt her chakra flow out of her, dancing with the rhythm of her hammer strikes. The girl wondered how it would sound to the nearest person. her instincts were good and her form was good, but she never knew how one would hear it. She heard a steady beat but someone else might have heard just a bunch of clanging. She wanted to ask others about it but now wasn’t the time or place. The girl thought that she might as well work on it while she would walk into somewhere where she could ‘volunteer’. All these thoughts about chakra and melodies eventually put Hina to sleep despite her work ethic. At least she had finished most of the harvesting tools so that the family could get to work the next day. She had a long day ahead of her just fixing up the workshop so that they could fix up the wagon. It was a task she was sure she could do, but whether or not she could do it in time was another question.

Hina spent much of her morning unloading every last tool from the workshop. It had been jam packed with so much junk that had nothing to do with crafting and had more or less devolved into a storage shed. She didn’t know why, but she felt a sort of pity for the workshop, as if it had been wronged and needed to be healed. She knew that it was her duty as a shinobi of leaf to tend to the needs of the people but she didn’t know that she would feel a supernatural connection to helping others.  Without feeling the connection she would have been a lot more rough and forceful but she handled each tool with care.

Once the tools were all laid out Hina could finally start renovations. She had neither the time, resources, or know how to rebuild the workshop but she could certainly make sure it had been cleaned and repaired. She took what supplies were available and gave the entire shop a good cleaning until the whole thing was soaking wet and scrubbed down. There was so much grime in the workshop that Hina thought about giving herself a good scrubbing as well. She’d put off the idea for now for the sake of saving time but it’d be one of the first things she did when she made it back to town.

She then took a good deal of coatings and applied it to all wooden surfaces, much to the family’s displeasure. Hina had long since stopped thinking about the family’s opinions and told them that this was best. They had wanted to save the coatings for their own home which was certainly a valid reason to be upset. Good thing they were too busy harvesting to put up too much of a fuss. Now that she was getting in tune with the workshop, Hina was thinking this was more of an opportunity to gain favor with them than to just help some strangers.

Now that the workshop was cleaned and coated, Hina could focus on the tools and tables that were now strewn across the farmer’s property. She separated them into piles based on their condition. Some were just in dire need of cleaning or greasing but most of them were bent out of shape and utterly unusable. Hina meticulously tinkered with each one until they were either considered scrap or usable. The scrap ones were thrown into a pile that Hina did her best to soften up in some heat. There wasn’t exactly a forge to work with here so only the softer metals could be easily used. These softer metals could be used as filler or to give extra support to structurally unsound areas. In the end though not much of the scrap could be used.

Hina tossed the scrap back into the pile that could hopefully be sold in town and used to buy replacement tools. Having been her first workshop fixup she wasn’t sure what else she could do to help out. If she had been more favored by the people she could have dug deeper into what was ailing the workshop. Hina thought about whether workshops had spirits living within them that were calling out to her and wondered whether they called out to everyone, even if they couldn’t hear. She thought that being a spirit must be a lonely existence if nobody could hear you.

Now that the tools were repaired, Hina and the family were able to repair the wagon and load up all the crops that had been harvested. Repairing the wagon was a hassle as well. Hina didn’t know anything about how a wagon worked and actually ended up learning a lot from the farmer who was trying to fix a very bent “axle” whatever that was. Hina learned that the axle was the rod that connected the wheels of a wagon and it essentially allowed the wagon to move.

The tools that were essential to repairing the wagon were just fixtures to hold the damn thing still while they straighten the axle out. Apparently if this thing was bent the wheels would be all lopsided and the whole wagon would collapse under the load of the crops. Hina wished she could mentally comprehend how loads were distributed and thought about coming back here sometime to learn a little more. The farmer seemed pretty smart which wasn’t something she’d come to expect from someone that lived this far away from society.

Hina held a small ritual that night to beside the workshop where each of the family members thanked the heavens for her help and for Hina happening upon their farm. The family also thanked Hina for her hard work. Hina was rather proud of what she had accomplished with little prior experience and she could finally rest easy. It was like a weight had been taken off her shoulders now that the repair was finished.

The next morning she would ride along with the farmer and finally get back to The area town. The trip took several days which wasn’t surprising seeing how long Hina had been lost. Mostly everything was going as expected except that when they arrived the farmer told everyone and their mom about the crazy past couple of days and how fortunate he was to have Hina show up. He called Hina a ‘gift from the gods’ which made Hina queasy. She didn’t know if she was ready for ‘that’ kind of reputation. It just went to show Hina just how appreciative the man was and how desperate of a situation he must have been in.

Getting renowned for helping a farmer wasn’t exactly how Hina had expected to get famous but so long as it was positive she wasn’t going to complain. Little did she know just how many more favors she would end up doing for free. While now it seemed like no big deal, it would someday be one of her biggest chores and obligations to the public. For now though, it was nice to get some recognition.
