After the usual few days of travel, Sojiro had arrived in the village of Gekkousato, being greeted by a few of the guards that were at the gate. They had come to be on a first-name basis, even though Sojiro lacked heavily in the social skills aspect, he had still managed to get to know these men. They weren't too bad, nor were the other men that he had served shifts with. After a short conversation, the man would move through the streets of the village and eventually get to one of the many inns. It was true that Sojiro had a lot of 'friends', or that's what they called themselves, in the village but he never felt comfortable staying with someone else. It felt wrong to ask them to stay there, mostly because Sojiro didn't trust many of them while he was asleep. At least, actually asleep. And it would only be harder to sleep after he finished with this mission. With a shake of his head, he would push those thoughts to the back of his mind and instead would head into the inn and get a room.
After entering the room, he would look over his mission report again before grunting, unpacking his bag and getting ready for another stay in the village. He would be here for a few days, seeing that he had also taken a few missions from the Moon Village, like he always did. For the rest of the day, Sojiro would take to the streets and walk around while minding his own business. He kept to himself and no one really bothered him, although he swore that a couple of the Usagi had given him dirty looks when he walked by them. But, that was probably just in his head, seeing as Hikari had been on his mind. Another shake of his head he would decide to go to a BBQ place for dinner and have a great meal because tomorrow, he didn't think that the food would ever taste the same in the Moon Village again.
Sojiro would wake up as the sun came up and would begin to fill his room, tossing on his pair of black pants and Flak Jacket to match. With a gesture of routine, he would tie his headband to keep his hair back with a single strand escaping down the front. With a sigh, strapping on his tool pouch and windmill shuriken, he would head out the door and into the streets once more. The man would eventually find himself coming to the village gates and seeing one of the guards from the other night, chatting with them and getting ready for his day to start. There wasn't really much for him to do while on guard, taking turns between watching the gates and shifting into the tower. It was inside the tower that Sojiro would begin his actual mission; gather intel on the guard shifts of the Moon Village. While alone in the tower, he only had a few minutes before someone would join him from another position. It was simple enough, taking the piece of paper from his pouch and sketching the copies of the current week, though it was only for two days.
The man would have to make another attempt in two days, because the current information would only be so helpful. Sojiro had already done this, crossed this line, so there wasn't any reason that he wasn't going to take it seriously. So, without much problem, Sojiro would return to do the rest of his shift and end the day out on good terms with everyone. The next day, there wasn't really much for him to do except enjoy his time in town but instead, he just did more research. Grabbing as many books and notes as he could on spirits, which only accounted to three books in total, at least that seemed legit. That was disheartening, especially since two of them were in some type of code or something. Advanced material from the Moon Village's library was no joke, it seemed. But, that was what he did until the night came, deciding to sleep. A certain Grandmom Bunbun had convinced him that being well rested was just as important as doing his job, otherwise he would be useless to everyone. He would never tell anyone that her advice had been taken to heart as much as it was but regardless, it didn't take him long to fall asleep.
And then it was his third day inside of the village, when he was to take another shift at the gates. It was easy enough to do the same thing again, this time finding the plans for the next week and the next. The man that Sojiro was on duty with today was an older man, a fan on Shogi. Sojiro wasn't the best but he was slowly getting better, a game that he enjoyed much more than he thought he ever would. And he had this man to thank him, the man whose trust he was betraying by taking this information for his own village. But nothing would stop him from finding out the answers to what was going on, even if everyone hated him in the process. He would find a way to crush whatever was going on. With a knot in his stomach, after getting the information he needed, he would go back to the man and enjoy his game of Shogi. Did it hurt to have to lie to this man? Was this guilt? No, that was ridiculous. That night, Sojiro would have issues sleeping and he just couldn't understand why, eventually falling asleep.
