Participants: Moon Village, Sun Village
Type: Group Mission
Reward: 45 EXP, 20 Ryo
Location: From one village to another
Details: A villager, local merchant or business man is in need of company on the road while heading to the next village. While they do not believe any danger is involved, the world is full of wild animals and bandits, and would feel safer if a couple of shinobi tagged along. The mission is simple, escort the client to the other village safely.
Requirements: Each person must make at least four posts, totaling to 1600 WC.
There was a multitude of things the pair of them could do. For one, Shizuka wanted to go swim in the lakes more than anything. Spending her whole life around sands the best you could find were oases and the occasional ocean side beaches. Sure they were great but oases tended to be shallow and most frowned upon swimming as drinking water was precious. Oceans on the hand were either rough, infested with sharks, or just too salty. Crystal clear and deep waters really sounded lovely to her. Floating on a tube, getting some sun that wasn't hot enough to turn you into a human sausage.
Imino took a bite out of her shaved ice, feeling the sweet crunch. The thin slivers of ice quickly turning into an ice-cold beverage on her tongue. Maybe in her older years, Shizuka would retire and open up a refreshment stand. Serving ice-cold beverages and hearing the gossip of the town. For a change, the rumors and gossip would come to her. Then again, she wondered if she would even live that long. The two spirits inside her suggested it was unlikely. One had died in his late 40's and the other in her early 30's.
Shizuka mentally batted away the doubts her inner rentees sowed. Instead, her eyes searched for something. Somewhere that rented out boats, perhaps the two of them could slowly sail down the rivers and cool off before heading home. She had opened her mouth, moments away from pointing at a store when someone interrupted.
"Yurei-sama? Yurei-sama of the Sun?" A small child around Kokoro's age came running down. He stopped panting, his chest heaving. When he caught his breath he handed over to Imino a scroll. Most would caution themselves reading scrolls from another village, especially so far from home but any traps and deceptions Shizuka was practically impervious to. Shizuka handed her desert over to Kokoro, prompting her to finish it. At that age, you were either hungry or starving.
"There is a merchant here who wishes to be escorted to the Sun. The village thought sending him back with you two would be easier." The boy meant Imino and Kokoro. He blushed looking away from the younger girl. Shizuka looked at the two of them, they'd make a cute couple but... She could do way better. Her eyes read the scroll. Reading its contents confirmed her mission and legitimacy of the request.
"It looks like we have to go home now Sakura-chan. At least we will get paid for it. Please ask the client to meet us at the gate. Scorpion Sake will be the meeting word." Shizuka would then begin to walk to the village gates.
