Kage Summit, Meeting of Leaders

15 posts in this topic

Screeching echoed out in the large stone room, the sound of wooden chair legs sliding across smooth stone made an awful sound. The thin nimble man pulling out the chair paused and winched, unaware that the chair would make such an annoying sound. Letting out a sigh he picked up the chair, moved it out a bit and took his seat. The room was a large oval stone room with nothing but a small circular wooden table at its center. Laid out around the table were three similar wooden chairs, each separated by the same amount of space. Hanging from the walls behind each chair hung the banner of its respected village. A large blue one with the water symbol, a large yellow one with the lightning symbol and a large red banner with the flame symbol hung from the lofty ceiling, all representing the villages that would be present today. The room belonged to a larger set of buildings located on Youso island, a small islanded located in lake Fuji and one of the only remaining neutral places left in the world. This island was to host the Kage Summit, a meeting between the leaders of the three largest settled territories. There was no telling what sort of things would be discussed today, but if everything went well the three Kage would walk out happy, and the world would be closer to peace.

 

Zarek Kanda, The Third Mizukage was the first to arrive at Youso island, or was the first to enter the room atleast. As the young kage took his seat he began to look around, noticing there was no one in the room with him. Taking a breath he slide the chair forward, getting closer to the table and causing the loud screech to echo out in the room once more. Pulling out a small folder he placed it on the surface of the table, opened it and began to organize the paper work inside. There was a lot he wanted to discuss here today, and hoped that the other two Kage shared his desire to be productive. Placing his palms to the surface of the table he sat back and sighed, waiting for the other two to arrive. He was known for being a very organized man, and this included arriving early to very important matters such as this one. The time that they had all agreed to meet was still about a half hour away, Zarek making sure to have been the first one there.

 

As he relaxed, allowing time to pass by, something caught his eye. Hanging from the wall to his left was a large blue banner bearing the symbol of his village. It took the young Kage a moment to realize something, his eye brow raising at the site of the blue cloth. Quickly turning around he noticed that hanging from the ceiling behind him was a bright yellow banner, bearing the lightning symbol. Groaning, The Third Water Shadow packed up his paper work, slide his chair out, then moved over one spot, aligning himself under the correct banner. It’s a good thing he had noticed, this was the first time he would meet the other two leaders and did not want to make a bad impression. After getting resettled in his chair the young Zarek smoothed out his coat, making sure each button was correctly buttoned. He wore his old Hunter Ninja Commander uniform, with the White and Blue Mizukage cloak draped over his shoulders. The long Violet hair was neatly pinned up into a ponytail, it hanging behind the back of his head. Zarek smiled, got all of his notes lined up and patiently waited for the other two to arrive.

His arrival had been largely unnoticed, despite his prestige as leader of the Lightning Territory. He was greeted by a few of the people that stayed on the island, glorified groundskeepers basically. This was how the 7ft tall shinobi viewed them, anyway. With him was his daughter, Nuilin, the only child he had that appeared to show interest in such things. His son was ironically more similar to Solinari, Nuitari's deceased brother. Putting it simply, the boy thought more with his fists than his head. 

 

Both the father and daughter duo wore similar traditional Kouga attire, wearing black robes that covered the majority of the body; excluding the feet. Under the robes were simple pants and shirt, both black. What stood out most was the large yellow insignia on the back of the robes, the clan symbol of the Kouga Manjidani Clan. Given that Kouga were notorious for being armored shinobi, the attire represented a degree of trust to those around them. 

 

The groundskeepers of the island directed the duo towards where the location of the meeting was being held. Upon arriving, the duo decided to partake in the food that was prepared for them. "Father, have you meet either of the other Kage before," she asked while the two killed a little time. "Not these guys. When I was ambassador I mostly met with the elders or other Ambassadors. They seemed receptive to the idea of maintaining the friendship among the villages," he answered while continuing his meal. "And if they aren't now," she asked. Nuitari glanced at his daughter, "Always seeing to the heart of the matter, Little Nuko." "I hate being called that," she replied finishing her meal. The response made Nuitari chuckle before finishing off his meal as well. 

 

With a little time killed, Nuitari and Nuilin made thier way to the meeting room and discovered someone already present. Based on where he was sitting, Nuitari assumed this man was the Mizukage. "Looks like we took more time than intended," Nuitari said to his daughter as they both moved towards his chair. "Lord Mizukage, I presume," the Denkikage stated as he allowed his 13 year old daughter to sit in his chair. He himself remained standing next to the chair, with both his hands resting on the back of the chair.

 

"I assume we're waiting for one more, then," Nuitari spoke. His tone in comparison to how he spoke with his daughter, much more deeper and stern. His expression remained stoic and even his posture remained regal and proud. "How much longer to we begin," Nuilin asked, as she stared at the Mizukage curiously. The response was a thump on the back of her head by Nuitari, "I told you about patience , little one, and do stop staring at the man. Your giving a bad impression of the Kouga." The thump was more embarrassing than painful, causing the young girl to look away and marvel at the other things around her. "My apologies, Mizukage, it is bring your kid to work day in the village. Consider us fortunate that her brother hates things like this," Nuitari finished, this time addressing the Mizukage.

The light breeze gently lifted the white cloak which hugged the body of the female who finally made her appearance in the foreign land. Gripping the sides of her cloak, the girl pulled them closer towards her lean body; there was no need for the cliche and overly dramatic billowing cloak scene. Taking a deep breath of the cool spring air, the female continued to walk down the unknown road, as her round eyes scanned her surroundings. After a few steps, Yuri came to a halt before scanning the area. Is this the right direction..? the female thought to herself as she turned to face another direction. Shrugging her shoulders, the young girl continued to walk. Hopefully, she was walking in the right direction. Should that not be the case, then it would have been her fault for walking around aimlessly.

 

Don’t tell anyone, but she was obviously lost, being one those people who have no sense of direction. Quite tragic, really.

 

Looking around for someone who could direct her to the location of the meeting, the girl was greeted by a group of men, lounging around in a small teashop. Quickly asking for the directions, Yuri thanked the men and thus, a hop, skip, and jump away, the female arrived to the building. It was quite empty with little people loitering around. Shifting her attention away from the people, the girl would walk towards a small hallway to the left of the building. Long behold, the pitter patter of footsteps could be heard resonating down the empty hallway as the heels of her boots tapped against the concrete floor. Pushing her long, brown hair back, the kunoichi made her way to the actual room where the meeting was being held.

 

As she neared the end of the corridor, the young girl stopped in front of the room before quickly smoothing out the creases in her dress. She needed to appear presentable to the other world leaders; appearing like a mess was not a good look in such a situation. You see, since she was on duty, proper attire was needed—or well, at least as proper as she could get anyway. Due to such, she was decked in a tight fitting, black dress, standard black boots, and her usual white cloak. Simple enough. Once she was done fixing her dress, the kunoichi would poke her head through the entrance of the room where the meeting was to be held. Inside were two men, both seemingly to be waiting for her arrival.

 

First meeting and she was already late. Great. Definitely off to a great start, amirite?

 

As she entered the room, Yuri took notice of a girl who sat in the chair which was concealed by a tall men, who towered over her. Looking up towards the yellow banner hanging above his head, she assumed that the two were both from the Lightning Village. “My apologies for the wait,” the girl softly said as her head dipped in a nod directed towards both men and the little lady. Grabbing the seat under the red banner which symbolized the Flame Village, the young kunoichi quickly settled in the chair before sliding her white cape off, revealing her attire. Draping the cloak across her lap, she studied the faces of the men and only girl before her. It was obvious that two men were much older than her. The little girl who sat in the chair under the yellow banner, however, appeared to be much younger. Letting an inaudible sigh escape past her lips, her usual stoic expression returned to her face as she await for one of them to speak up.

The Mizukage sat there in silence for a few moments, skimming over his paper work and making sure everything was in order. He was a very detail oriented man and did not want to come off as ill prepared in front of these leaders. It was the first time he would meet either of them, and if he had any hopes of forming a lasting relationship with the other Kage he needed to make a good first impression. As the young man peered over his notes the silent halls began to fill with the sound of foot steps and voices, it was atleast two people, sharing conversation with themselves. Had the other kage arrived together? They were already bonding and talking politics with out him? However as the duo stepped into the room Zarek quickly noticed one was a large bulky man, and the other a small female child. They both wore the same attire, symbolizing they both hailed from the same land.

 

The young Kage stood, making sure to not slide his chair back, placed his hands across his stomach and bowed as the two made their way to the chair next to him. The large man followed the young girl, who he assumed to be the mans daughter, and watched as the child took the Denkikage’s seat, the man standing behind her. Bowing, Zarek smiled addressing both with respect. “Greetings lord Denkikage. “ He smiled at both of them, bowing first to the child then to the man behind her. He was a towering man, and held true to the stories Zarek had heard. It was a good thing they were here out of a sign of peace. Taking his seat once more the young man leaned back and took a breath, now only waiting for one more. 

 

He could not help but chuckle as the girl impatiently asked how much longer they were going to wait. She seemed ready to get to business, he admired her. “Right to the point isn’t she, she shall make a wonderful leader one day Lord Denkikage.” Shifting his attention to the kage’s daughter Zarek smiled at her as the sound of another set of footsteps could be heard coming down the hall. “Well it would appear the third Kage has arrived, so hopefully we will get started right away. “ Looking up he watched as another young female entered the room. This one was much older than the child, and held herself like a true leader. Standing once more Zarek bowed to address who he assumed was the Hikage.

 

“Madam Hikage! Wonderful to see you.” He took his seat as the woman made her way to the table, removed her coat and promptly sat in the chair under the red banner. Now that all of the leaders had arrived they could begin. Clearing his throat the Mizukage shifted some papers around in his folder, laid a few out in front of the others and then smiled, trying to keep a calm welcoming demeanor. “First off, im very pleased to see you have all made it here safely and in good health. I am glad to finally meet the three of you, and hope todays meeting is as productive as I would like it to be.”

 

There was no middle man here, no one to guide the conversation, and if left unchecked Zarek would dictate the flow of the conversation, it was just the kind of person he was. A political diplomat to his core. However he did not want to come off strong and decided he would let his fellow leaders take the floor first. “Would either of you two like to start us off? I have a nice list of things I would like to discuss, and figured it would only be polite to let one of you start.” Unbuttoning the top button of his coat he remained seated with his back against the chair.

Nuilin smiled warmly at the Mizukage at the compliment, "I'm humbled by how you brown your nose, Lord Mizukage," she replied sweetly. Nuitari responded swiftly by giving her a swift thump on her lip. Completely unawares, the response from her father caused her to bite her tongue. "Mind your manners, child, you are speaking to your elder," the Denkikage stated plainly before responding to the Mizukage. "I'd say wonderful is a stretch," he replied giving his daughter a warning glance. She knew better than to behave as such in a setting like this. She shot him a hurtful look before the two both diverted their attention to the last arrival to this meeting. Given that he and the Mizukage were already present, he assumed this woman was the Hikage. Nuitari waited while the Mizukage stood and bowed respectfully at the new arrival. Who in turn apologized for making them wait, "Think nothing of it, Hikage. We've only just arrived ourselves," the Denkikage replied coolly.

 

"I'm Nuilin, future Denkikage of Yamagakure," the young girl stated, having recovered from her previous attack. Nuitari shot her yet another glance and raised his hand, to which the girl immediately covered her lips and fell silent. With almost perfect timing, the Mizukage began to more or less begin the meeting. Given how prepared he appeared, Nuitari pegged him as the type who typically preferred to take the charge. Not the worst kind of guy to have in charge of a village, but annoying to deal with some times. In this particular situation, the most prepared should be first to lead the room. 

 

There was also a desire to see just where each of the Kage's minds were. "Respectfully, Lord Mizukage, you seem the more prepared of the three of us. Unless Lady Hikage objects, I'm fine with you setting the tone for this meeting. You were the first to arrive, the right should go to you," Nuitari stated as he continued to stand and allow his daughter to stay in his seat. He instead simply leaned on the back of the chair, his arms folded like one would do on a terrace or balcony. Given his time as an ambassador for the Lightning, he had hoped he would at least recognize one of the Kage. This was not to be the case it seemed, as these individuals were new to him. Apparently, these two came up from out of nowhere to take over the leadership of a territory. "Just like me," he thought to himself as he waited for either of his equals to speak.

As she made her way towards what she assumed was her seat, the corner of her eye caught sight of a man bowing. Turning her body to face the man, she looked at the long-haired man and reciprocated his bow. Sneaking a glance towards the banner which hung above him, she made a mental note that he was the Mizukage. His name didn’t matter as long as she could remember his face. Since she wasn’t the best at remembering names, the next best option was to remember people’s faces. Turning to face the other man in the room, the young girl bowed as a greeting and tipped her head towards the girl who sat in the seat in front of him. Taking her seat, she slipped her cloak off before hearing the little girl speak. Looking at Nuilin, Yuri shot her a smile upon her introduction before settling in her seat. Cute.

 

Looking up, Yuri focused her attention towards the meeting that was about to happen. Crossing her right leg over the left, the girl studied the faces of the individual present as she leaned into her seat. No one seemed particularly tense, something which she appreciated; being a room with tense people isn’t… well, nice. Resting her hands on her right leg, the girl lightly tapped her index finger repetitively against her thigh. It seemed as if the other two authoritative figures in the room have both decided against bringing bodyguards along, a good decision in her eyes. Given the nearly nonexistent anxiety between the villages, bringing guards along to what was hopefully a peaceful meeting would seem odd, in her opinion; we wouldn't want a war to break out so early in the game, right?… No? Okay.

 

Taking a deep breath, Yuri mentally prepared herself for the meeting. Will she be quiet throughout the course of the summit or will she actually contribute to the discussion? We shall find that out. Watching the Mizukage shift through his bunch of paper and whatnot, the girl raised her left eyebrow. He seemed throughly prepared which was fitting, but it also seemed as if he had a lot of points to dish out during the meeting. Great.

 

Pushing a wild strand of hair out of her face, the young girl smoothed out her dress for the sake of doing something; she didn't know how to act in these type of situations. Glancing up, the kunoichi turned to look at the Mizukage as he started to babble his way towards the commencement of the summit. Following this was an offer to take the floor of the meeting. Turning to look at the Denkikage, Yuri listened to the man’s response. “Likewise,” uttered the girl, agreeing with the words of the Denkikage. Everything that she wanted to say has already been said by the much older man and thus there was no need to repeat and fluff it up with words of her own. Following her response, Yuri nodded towards the Mizukage, a sign that he should take the stage. Passing the microphone on to him to get the ball rolling seemed like a good idea seeing as he was probably the most prepared amongst all the individuals present.

Both of the Kage seemed eager to get this thing started, and most likely over with just as quickly. It was something they all wanted, and knew the world needed, but it was always awkward to meet with other powerful leaders, especially when the world was filled with war and hatred. It was only natural to want to be back home, where you could lead and protect your home, instead of lingering in unknown lands with people you were not sure you could trust. The day seemed to be going well so far though, and Zarek had no worries that this meeting would hold anything other than positivity. With the other two agreeing that he should be the one to go first, he happily obliged. The Mizukage was a very organized man and would be happy to start the party off. Clearing his throat the young kage shifted some of his paper work from the folder, laid it out and began to speak.

 

"Well, again i would like to thank each of you for agreeing to this meeting. The world is so full of conflict, i know it can be hard to leave your home, especially for such a trivial meeting. However this does bring up my first point. Lord Denkikage and Madam Hikage, the three of us control the largest shinobi villages in the world. I know in the past our ancestors may not have seen eye to eye, some of us even going to war with each other. Im not like those who came before me though. As you know Mizumura has a negative reputation of being a savage and blood thirsty place. Since my induction as kage i have been working on this image, trying to reinvent the water territories. I would like to extend this offer to the two of you. I believe if we unite our villages, all of us will find it easier to not only grow, but to provide a safe future for those who call our villages home. After all thats why we are here correct? Our homes mean everything to us, and i could not live with myself if something were to happen to those who look to me for protection. Because of this i would like to propose a unified village treaty. We open are gates to each other, unlock intervillage trade and corporation, and allow our people to form bonds and relationships with each other."

 

As he spoke he would occasionally shift his attention between the three sitting at the table. Keeping his words short and clear. There was no room for beating around the bush or hiding motives within flashy speeches. He was proposing something that had not been done before in the history of the Shinobi world. A connected set of villages, where they all lived and worked together. It was a dream that a hopeful man had, a desire to see a world filled with happy people and smiling children. Where peace was the norm and those who actively sought destruction were met with full force. He only hopped that the others shared this dream.

"Interesting," he thought.

 

He stood straight up now, listening intently to the words of his equal and smiled as it reached its conclusion. The idea of a unified land was all he truly wanted, given his own chaotic past. He'd taken more lives than he cared to admit and lost more than he could ever truly cope with. Since the death of Solinari, his younger brother, he'd seen what  darkness truly lurks in the hearts of man. He'd seen so much of that he soon began to believe that he to must be just as lost as the rest. How could he not be when all around him seemed shrouded by hatred, greed, and turmoil. At least this was his thoughts in the days when he still went by the 'Black Lion', a name very few living people know him by. It took saving the life of another to show him that his action could bring light to the world. So he turned his blade on the darkness and championed himself for the light, the peace.

 

So many years spent travelling the land for this goal, and now he stood at the table. Finally in a position where his words carry the weight of an entire land and at this very table would be when he would accomplished all he fought for. "I think that is for the best," Nuilin blurted out before quickly covering her mouth. Nuitari only gently nuzzled his disobedient child, "I agree, little one,"  he began before addressing the Mizukage, "Indeed this is something I have made my life's mission to accomplish. History belongs to the past and in order to build the future we desire, we have to remove the shackles of the past. I'm not so naive that would assume we can abolish all evil from the land, but we can ensure that we stand together. For to long has animosity from the past ruled us, and I for one and tired of the old ways of doing things. While we do have peace now, I believe a treaty will be bring about a new way for all of our people. Lightning stands with it."

 

"Fuckin right," Nuilin cheered as she put his fist up in the air and leaned on the table. "You will pay for that later," Nuitari said without so much as breaking away his attention from his comrades. Nuilin shrunk back in the chair with a mischievous grin on her face, it reminded the Denkikage of the child's mother. "Whoa betide the fool who desires her heart," he thought to himself. "As I was saying, Lightning has an open door policy to all who mean no harm to the people. I've done so with this with the intentions that perhaps others would follow suit. So this is something even my people are sure to get behind. We have seen the result of a divided land, I'm more curious now to see the results of a united one." As he spoke he bounced his attention to both, what he perceived were his future allies, Kage's before settling on the Hikage upon finishing his statement. He was rather curious as to what her opinion of the Mizukage's notion would be. More or less passing the turn to speak onto her. She was, after all, the last opinion Nuitari had yet to gauge, he was curious to the type of mentality she possessed.

It wasn’t long before the Mizukage began his speech. Inching her body forward towards the desk which stood in front of her, the girl propped up her elbows and pricked up her ears, giving him her full attention. Truthfully, there was only one thing she wanted out of the meeting: establish an alliance between the villages. Why? because it seemed like a good idea then. She didn’t want unneeded conflict between the villages—that would only cause a headache. Sure, conflict may seem ‘exciting’, but for the time being, let’s look for excitement through other means, shall we?

 

Lowering her head ever so slightly, she brought her hands together, letting her slender fingers intertwine. Her lower face was resting against her hands, hiding her facial expression—not that there was much of an expression on her face anyway. Listening intently to what the Mizukage had to say, Yuri cocked her head ever so slightly to the right. Raising her left eyebrow as a response to his proposal, the young girl eyed the Denkikage. She’d like to hear his response to the Mizukage’s suggestion before coming up with an answer of her own. Shifting her attention the man, the female pricked her ears. Hearing his answer, which was sprinkled by Nulin’s comments, left Yuri in thought. The little girl helped lighten the mood in the room with her playful comments, something which Yuri appreciated. Being in a room with grown men, whom she assumed were serious and stuff (or at least it seemed that way) wasn’t exactly a comfortable situation to be in. Being serious wasn't exactly a part of her personality. Yes, her job (which she technically didn’t apply for, by the way, but whatever; that is another story and shall be told another time) description did outline ‘be serious’, but oh well. Anyway, enough rambling and fluff, now back to the situation.

 

To accept, or not to accept—that is the question.

 

The Great Shinobi War has caused unnecessary tension between the villages scattered across the world. It wasn’t long before the fight came to an end, resulting in a truce between the three largest village. A peace treaty, of course, seemed like a good idea. The Shinobi world has been at peace for a good while, but no world is ever perfect. Something bad is bound to happen at some point; maybe a conflict of interest(s) which may result in a little squabble or another dreaded war. It seemed that the Denkikage himself agreed with the Mizukage’s proposal, leaving Yuri to take the stage and voice out her thoughts.

 

Staring off into space, Yuri began her little speech, “The Flame Village, has had a bad reputation not long after its establishment. With the rise of slavery under the second Hikage, the village wasn’t exactly… the best place to live in. I’d like to change that and show others that we no longer run the village under such inhumane acts. I accepted this position with the goal to abolish slavery and change the village’s policy and economy as a whole. At the same time, establishing a peace treaty between the other two major villages was also in my perception of things that I wanted to achieve,” Nodding towards the Denkikage, the kunoichi continued, “I do agree with the Dekikage in that we can’t assume that we could abolish all evil from this land; that is indeed true. Thinking that it could be done seems a little… unrealistic, in my opinion.” Leaning back into her seat, the girl paused for a split second before continuing, “A unified village treaty sounds good.” Ending her speech, the female shifted her attention between the other two leaders in the room, waiting for one to pick up the ball and continue the course of the meeting.

Zarek did his best to hold a serious face as these two great leaders spoke. On the inside however he was overjoyed to their responses, fighting back a grin as they spoke. There words were perfect and both seemed to agree with what he was proposing. Much like his own village theirs had experiences its fair share of strife and suffering, the people all around the world being subject to the evils of their ancestors. He had to admit he did not follow all of the actions of each village, but it was true, the time before each of them was a dark time filled with violence, murder and hatred towards one another. It was very pleasing to hear that each of them were making progress in their respected lands. One could not have a unified land of peace when one of the villages was struggling internally. A point he planned to bring up shortly. With both the Denkikage and the Hikage finishing their responses, the Third Mizukage was happy to continue the conversation, excited that they both shared his views.

 

"Very well, i am pleased that we all see eye to eye on these matters. As a part of this agreement i would like to establish life lines between our three homes. One where we can interact peacefully, provide support to one another and even allow our shinobi to work together for a higher purpose. There is a lot of unexplored land out there, especially between our villages. I believe we could come together and instead of fighting over this land we can create outpost, to trade and work together through. As a sign of good faith i would even offer one up closest to my village as the first to be built and established. Also, with most of us still recovering from the sins of the past i would like to offer up support to either of you that requires it. Weather it be supplies or man power, the Water Village is here to help. I want a better future for our young, for they are the ones to inherit the land we leave them."

 

As he finished speaking he slid forward a few pieces of paper, agreements he previously wrote up all detailing what was just covered. He had created enough copies for each kage to take back to their village and review. He knew things were going to be slow, for it was a tricky like to cross when establishing peace. He knew however that if everyone agreed the world would be a better place for everyone.

"Excellent. We are of one mind on this. I admit I feared I was being to optimistic that things would go this smoothly. For once, these fears proved to be unfounded. It gives me hope for the future," Nuitari stated as he averted took a brief moment to glance at his daughter. "Don't be concerned, father, the Kouga are the future," she blurted out nonchalantly as she gave a big yawn. Ignoring the statement Nuitari continued, "so, my fellow Kage, how shall we seal this deal." "In blood," Nuilin let slip before the father had finally had enough. 

 

Like one would pluck a puppy, Nuitari picked up his daughter from the chair and forced her out the room. Naturally a pointless struggle on her part ensued before she was out the room. "Keep an eye on this one, please," he said to one the attendants to the meeting. The man nodded and offered Nuilin a tour of island, which due to her curios nature seemed to work immediately. 

 

Nuitari returned to the meeting and sat in his chair, offering apologies to both the Kage before going back to his main question. "How shall we make this official and more importantly, what is the punishment for those that break the peace. History belongs to the elders and many are stuck in their ways from past experiences. I would not be surprised if some of my own secretly hated the idea of peace. It is difficult to share a room with one that has done you wronged you, but peace must be paramount. Especially if this peaceful alliance is meant to spread throughout the land."

 

Falling silent only to reach in his pocket and reveal a joint, he lit it and continued, "I would suggest we share the act of capturing each-other's villages criminals and runaways. At which point they captured will be delivered to their respective village for punishment to be administered." His attention danced back and forth between the two Kage as he spoke, "We can call it a bingo book and administer one to all of our shinobi. I believe something to document all criminals from each village will play a vital role in the future." He took a puff of joint, blowing the smoke upward though it didn't stop the scent from filling the room. The Denkikage waited quietly after finishing, curious to hear his colleagues thoughts on the matter.

 

(Last bit was based on the assumption that there aren't any bingo book concept created ICly. Figured it would be dope if timeline wise, we three came up with it at this summit. If there already is one ic then disregard that last bit.)

Listening to the words of the Denkikage, Yuri cocked her head to the right as his speech came to an end. Pursing her lips, a small chuckle escaped past her lips upon hearing Nuilin’s comments. Quickly suppressing it, she hoped that the other two didn’t catch it; after all, it was a serious meeting filled with serious things to talk about so she should be serious too or something. Since she was the youngest out of the three, Yuri felt the need to present herself in a serious manner. There was perhaps the fear that the other two Kage would view her as childish and unfit for the position which she held, which may or may not be true, but alas that is another discussion for a different occasion.

 

Back to the situation–how should the three of them seal the deal?

 

“I actually agree with… your daughter. Sealing the deal in blood seems fitting,” What. Pausing for a moment, she bit her lower lip. Pull yourself together, the kunoichi shouted in her head before clearing her throat, “Uh… A written contract with our signatures, on the other hand, is also a good option,” Awkward. Goodbye professionalism and seriousness.

 

Dismissing her actions, the kunoichi quickly continued to address the other two Kage, “Oh and as for spreading awareness regarding this treaty, I believe a public service announcement should suffice. This treaty is after all… a risk, so I may call, that the three of us of have chosen to take. It takes a lot of trust to establish an alliance and breaking it would, of course, lead to consequences. I personally do not believe in violence; violence begets violence. So, should one of us break the deal, shall we try and settle the dispute peacefully before doing anything rash?" Pausing for a second, she continued, "After all, we should be the ones setting positive examples for others to follow and one way of doing that is by being… well, peaceful rather than violent towards one another.” Studying the faces of the other two, Yuri pursed her lips for a moment. Was that the right thing to say? Who knows. Either way she was open to what the other two leaders had to say.

 

Wrinkling her nose as the smell of smoke slowly crept across the room, she eyed the Denkikage. Tying in to what he last said, he came up with the suggestion of capturing criminals hailing from the respective villages. Bingo book; administered to all shinobi; yes or no? Deciding to answer first this time around, she sat up, “Sounds good. Though, perhaps we should limit the distribution of those books to only those of Jounin–maybe Chuunin–rank and above. I’d much rather not involve those of lower rank with criminals.” Looking pointedly at the Mizukage, Yuri await for his views on the Denkikage’s suggestion.

 

Fast forward to the silence which filled the room, it was time for Yuri to make a suggestion of her own, “On a completely unrelated note, I suppose, I’d like to hear your thoughts on a joint Chuunin Exam. It could be a way to commemorate the unified village treaty and improve relations between our shinobi force. Of course, we wouldn’t be doing this straight way; The logistics of such an event needs to be discussed beforehand. I personally would much rather have this happen sometime in the near future. This will allow the potential candidates to prepare themselves for it and whatnot. Since I did bring this up, I would like to take up the responsibility of hosting the first one, unless either one of you would like to host it instead.”

The young daughter of the Denkikage was a very serious individual, she had the spunk and charisma of a future Kage, even for someone as young as herself. He could not help but find her a little comical though, blurting out that they should sign in blood to seal the deal. It was an ancient tradition that many cultures adopted to show how serious they were about adhearing to a treaty. What was more surprising was that the lady Hikage had agreed to such an act. Although a little more hesitant than the young kouga. As Yuri continued to speak Zarek pulled out a slip of paper from his folder, a contract that he had prewritten up for just this occasion. Sliding it forward he placed a small pen over top it, letting it rest in the center of the table. It was a peace treaty the detailed what they had just spoken over, with three large lines at the bottom for each of their signatures. As a sign of good faith he was the first to place his name on the sheet, leaving it for anyone else to go next.

 

"I agree, the public should be aware of this treaty, i vote that in the following weeks we each host a festival, to honor the peace between our homes. We can open up our gates to the others and allow our shinobi to bond with one another. I believe this will be a perfect first step in sealing this pact. As far as breaking this treaty, i also agree with the Hikage, if problems arise between villages we should first attempt to solve these problems diplomatically. If the current person in charge feels they no longer wise to be apart of this treaty, they forfiet all alliance with us. I do like the idea of working together to capture our criminals though. A Bingo book is an excellent idea, we should start creating ours and maybe even hand them out to the other kages.

 

The room slowly began to fill with smoke and a dank odor as the Denkikage began to smoke. Both Yuri and himself cringing their noses at the smell. Then the Hikage brought up the idea of join Chuunin exams, a topic he to was very interested in. He liked the idea of holding a chuunin exams between each village. "I like this idea. However if either of you would not mind, the water village would like to host these first join exams. We have a very negative reputation from our past, with the dark traditions our land once held. As most of you know i am working to change these views and cultures, i think our first joint and friendly exam will not only help our villages come together, but it will help for others to see the water in a better light."

"Then we have an accord," Nuitari stated as he put out his joints. He'd notice that the other Kage appeared to be bothered by it, and he could hold off on finishing it later. He read over the contents of the paper that was revealed by the Mizukage. He nodded once he finished and proceeded to put his own signature on it. He then bit his thumb just enough to break the skin and cause blood to appear. "For good measure," he stated before he pressed his thumb next to his name. With this he bonded the Lightning to this treaty and essentially vowed its allegiance to the 3 village treaty. 

 

Taking a glance out the window, Nuitari stood and bowed to the Kage in the room. "I apologize but I muse cut this meeting short. Wile this meeting holds importance, the job of a Kage is often one filled with meetings like this one. I will send my messengers to your offices in regards to the festival and chuunin exams." He paused and took a single glance at the Mizukage, "I have no issue with the chuunin exams being held in Water, but your history is indeed a troubled one. Lightning holds our youth in the highest regard, they are our future after all. Expect that Lightning will be adding shinobi to the roster of guarding and officiating the event. I'm sure the added muscle will ease the minds of even your own shinobi." 

 

With that he existed the room in time to notice both of the guards sleeping and his daughter listening in. "What did you do, child," he asked plainly as he roused the sleeping guards. "It was a trick, Raist showed me, just some sleeping powder blown in the face and bam, sleepy time," she stated proudly. Nuitari shook his head and lead his daughter away, who made sure she bid farewell to the Kage's and guards. "Just like her mother," Nuitari thought to himself as the duo made their way out the building, heading back to Lightning.

Watching the Denkikage sign the agreement, the girl would lean into her seat while waiting for the paper to reach her. Pursing her lips as the man pressed his bloody thumbprint or whatever on the contract, Yuri sat up straight. Thoroughly reading over the contents of the paper, she quickly left her signature beside the Denkikage’s. Following his action, she left a bloody thumbprint as well because… well, why not?

 

Passing the paper back to the Mizukage, it was time for the girl to fill in the silence with a suggestion followed by listening for responses by the other two leaders in the rooom. Upon hearing the words of the Mizukage, the kunoichi shrugged her shoulders as a response. Perhaps, it seemed rude and unprofessional, but at that point, that facade of professionalism or whatever has shattered after her hey-let’s-sign-the-contract-in-blood suggestion. Less work for me, I suppose, she thought to herself. Eyeing the Denkikage as he took his leave, Yuri stood up and bowed in response. Flicking her hair back, the female sat in her chair and leaned against the table, “I am fine with that as well.” Her response was curt as she didn't have much to say. Should she have offered manpower to assist the Water Village with the event? Perhaps; it was something which she needed to consider thus if need be, she would send a couple people to help with anything.

 

Letting silence fill the room, the kunoichi would eye the door, “Uh, I also need to take my leave. Duty calls. Till next time,” the young girl stood up, bowed and swiftly exited the room. She needed to get back to the village because… well just because.
