Say Something

on Sat Oct 07, 2017 11:46 pm
[ketsu]

Ketsu Uchiha

As the birds chirped away their happy good mornings, excited to start their days and move on with their lives, the black-haired male slowly opened his eyes to the rays of sunshine penetrating through the clouds and curtains, flooding the room with a warm morning light which could only server to be a message directed at him to pay more attention to his beloved, and his darkened eyes drifted over her frame.

What did I do to deserve you?... Memories as vivid as the day they happened, detailing the two of them meeting, their first date, and now living together. He considered himself quite lucky to be in the position he was, to know who she was as a person and to be able to both fall asleep and wake up to her every day. All the bad things that have happened... his mother, his father.. but she was here, she was his blessing.

Choosing not to wake her, the former Anbu slipped out of the bed and wandered into the kitchen, where he began to make two cups of tea, smiling to himself as he continued to fully wake up. While the water was heating up, he walked over to the window and looked out over his Village; more accurately, his Brother's village, but it was home to him, so that had to count for something. The water finishing heating up, he floated back towards it with a smile, pouring it into two cups to steep.

A few moments later, Ketsu Uchiha walked back into the bedroom, and looked at her again.[/ketsu]

Kiyomi Uzumaki




The redheaded Uzumaki remained asleep, though her nose twitched and she stirred slightly when Ketsu woke up and moved about. She was tired from the previous day due to having just finished a mission, and although it looked like she was snoring, no sound came out. When her beloved left the room she had sprawled across the bed, probably trying to feel her lover's body.

The missing satisfaction registered on some level of her mind though for the moment she stayed asleep for a bit longer. Her mind happened to be replaying many events in her life. Her first becoming aware of her status as the village's Jinchuuriki being among them, but then the rest followed, her finally earning the villager's respect through hard work, meeting Ketsu and managing to hit it off with him in a romantic way despite having spent years being mostly isolated by her peers. Now them living together.

Finally she did wake up as the last bits played through and remembered the lack of satisfaction her mind had picked up when she failed to touch her lover. causing her to open her eyes and look around slowly before ending up on the doorway to the room just as Ketsu walked back in with a groggy smile on her face, "Hi there.."

Ketsu Uchiha



Stepping closer to her, his mind was filled with memories of their first encounter. Sitting in the tree with a cigarette while writing about the moon, only to look down and see her under him. Was it fate which led them to each other, or childish innocence? He didn't put too much stock in trying to figure that out as he sat on the bed and handed her a cup of tea, leaning over and pressing his lips against her forehead.

"Good morning, Uzumaki." He wondered what the day would have in store for them, as a cold wind blew through the open windows and set his hair on edge. It was a time of relative peace, but he was sure she knew as well as he did how quickly those things could change. All it took to start a war was someone dying, and people died every day... not that it was particularly how he intended to start his morning, but he was now thinking about it.

Shaking off those thoughts, Ketsu Uchiha closed his eyes and took in a breath, trying not to let his anxiety get the best of him as he opened them again to see the groggy smile of Kiyomi Uzumaki still there at him. He didn't know how to express how much she meant to him, but he was simply hoping that being there for her was a good enough way of dealing with it. Setting his tea down on the night stand and getting off the bed, he cracked his neck and his back, taking off his shirt and tossing it to the side, the Kumogakure ANBU Tattoo showing on his shoulder, though he knew Kiyomi knew of his past. He had retired from that life a few years prior, but was still in the prime of his power for now.

As he rummaged through the closet and threw on an outfit, complete with his signature coat, he looked at that tattoos on his fingers and smiled lightly, knowing how much Kiyomi had helped with that concept. Glancing back over to her, to make sure she hadn't fallen back asleep, he smiled again.

Kiyomi Uzumaki




"Mornin Uchiha" she stuck her tongue out at him playfully as she sat up on the bed and accepted the tea from him, "you'd think after so many years you'd remember how much I don't like formal talk," she sniffed the tea and ah'd at it before taking a sip, eye'ing her man as he got out of bed and took off his shirt. Her mind immediately played some jokes on her but she shook them off and merely smiled as her face turned as red as her hair for a moment before turning to normal before Ketsu had finished dressing himself.

She hugged him from behind as a red flash of light disappeared her from the bed and into hug position before kissing his cheek, "So what's the plan for today?" another red flash, her special jutsu formula activating because of her feet moving so fast, Causing her to appear dressed in her standard black attire,

she stretched and yawned a bit before giggling and looking at Ketsu and taking another sip of her tea, which she still had in her hands, "peace is nice.. not going to argue that.. but it gets kind of boring too eh..?"

Ketsu Uchiha



"Well we're out of eggs, and we've got maybe one day left on the milk. What say we head to the market?" Her speed was enough to make him smile, after as many years as they'd known each other he did know that she didn't care for the formal talk and her speed only served to make him a bit jealous, though he could keep up with what she was doing even if not as fast as she was doing it. The two of them dressed and ready to go, Ketsu picked up his tea again and sipped at it as the two began to walk out of the room, and Ketsu peered over the village again.

Peace... does get boring. Well, maybe not boring... it was difficult to find the perfect word for it, but boring didn't sound quite right. It was... mundane. The only light in the peaceful world was Kimiyo herself, at least from Ketsu's standing. She was for all intents and purposes, the light in his life. At least she was something to look forward to, the falling asleep next to her every night, waking up next to her every morning... it added up, and made her the ony thing which he was genuinely excited to do daily.

"Of course, we could always just head out into the mountains and spar like the old days. Back when we were still Genin... god I was such a dork." Grinning at her lightly, he knew one of those sounded much more appealing than the other one. Sipping at his tea again, he made sure to secure his tool bags at his sides in case she took him up on that, and adjusted his coat lightly before opening the door for her to lead the way: the market, or the mountains.

Kiyomi waved a hand in front of her face dismissively as he started to mention going to spar, "Dear I just got back from a mission last night remember? I want to relax, not get revved up again, you know if I don't relax now I'll end up pester-- I mean asking your bro-- I mean Lord Raikage for another mission out of fidgetting and being hyper. Let's get some groceries and just have a nice slow day." which was ironic in a way she probably wouldn't understand on her own due to the fact as soon as she said that she looked around for her purse and blurred over to it using her speed.

With it in tow and Ketsu waiting by the door she just took a dignified posture and headed out into the streets of Kumo. Since he mentioned eggs she headed to the farmers marketplace first. Unless he argued against it and wanted to go to one of the more "fancy" places for food shopping anyways.

Either way when they arrived she'd get a few other things to make dinner that night too. She was thinking paste, since her love of ramen wasn't universal in Kumo, so she grabbed a few vegetables and spices for flavoring while they were there.

Ketsu Uchiha

The raven-haired male smiled as she recanted her return from her mission, and he nodded lightly. He hadn't exactly forgotten, but she was a bit weird when it came to what she did and didn't feel like doing, and even after they'd known each other this long, he was still learning what she did and didn't have the patience for. As they stepped out of the house, Ketsu locked the door behind him and caught up with her as they walked into town, their house a bit aways from the urban village and the marketplaces, rather private for those... loud nights.

Since Kiyomi preferred the smaller food places to the more fancy ones, Ketsu simply followed her in stride as he placed his hand over her shoulder and pulled her close, a smile lingering on his face as he whispered the words 'I love you' into her ear while they walked. He didn't prefer the fancy places for any reason other than they usually had the cuts of meat he preferred, or they had more variety since they could afford to trade with people on the outskirts of Kaminari no Kuni. Still, Kiyomi was his wife, and he tried to be a good husband, even if that meant staying away from those places.

As they walked into the market ally, Ketsu lagged a bit behind Kiyomi to let her continue guiding him. Shopping was never his strong point, nor his favorite point, and was something he mostly did just to spend time with Kiyomi. If things were under his vision, people would just deliver the groceries to his door and he could just read and write at home with some tea... since that clearly wasn't going to happen, he had to deal with things as they were. Still, he got to spend time with Kiyomi... so that was a win in his book.

The vibrant haired head of the Kumogakure no Sato, was pacing his office, it had been far too long since he had sent out that team to take care of that bandit problem, and they hadn't returned or even sent word back yet. Writing a quick note to deliver to his Brother, and Kiyomi, two of his most trusted Ninja. Using one of the villages Hawks to deliver the message, he would return to his office where he would start pacing waiting for them to answer his summons.

A hawk would swoop down and land on Ketsu's shoulder, being quite careful to keep it's razor sharp talon's in check. The majestic bird of pray had no issues locating these two after failing to catch them at their home. Kiyomi's vibrant red hair causing her to stand out among the other shoppers, Tied to the leg of the bird was the following note.

"To Ketsu and Kiyome,
Sorry to do this so close to your return, but something came up and you are two of the best I have. Please come to the office for debriefing.

Uchiha Mitsukai, Raikage"

Kiyomi sighed when she noticed the chakra of the bird coming towards them, though she couldn't spot it for another few moments, and just glared hatefully at it as it landed on Ketsu's shoulder but stroked it softly anyways as thanks for delivering the message. As it left she frowned though, she had wanted the day to herself to tell Ketsu something very important..and it looks like she's going to have to do so earlier than anticipated..while infront of her brother in law the Raikage.

Wonderful..

Either way she perked back up and nodded at Ketsu before heading towards the Raikage's building. Wouldn't take long, it was one of the more distinguished buildings in the  village. Once there she'd knock and wait for a response before entering the room and waving a bit, but leaving the talking to Ketsu for the moment. She didn't "dislike" the Raikage, not by any means, but she didn't particularly "like" talking to him either...

So she'd leave that to her beloved.

[ketsu]

Ketsu Uchiha

As the bird landed on his shoulder, Ketsu let loose a sigh, having now understood why his wife let loose one a few moments prior. Without even needing to read the letter attached to the bird's leg, he knew it would involve another mission for the two of them. They'd both returned just the day before, but it seemed that something which involved their skillset was required, since otherwise the Raikage wouldn't be bothering them. The issue with being the top two Ninja in the village was that they were required more often than others.

How would they ever be a family like this? Short of Kiyomi getting pregnant and taking a leave of absence due to that, they'd never have the time to settle down to any real degree. Gently pulling the message off the bird's leg, Ketsu scanned it briefly and handed it off to Kiyomi as he turned around and eyed the Raikage's building, the two of them moving towards it quickly. Official business meant they were both quick on their feet, though Ketsu expected Kiyomi to stop at the house and get mission-ready in a flash, since she was known for her speed.

As the two entered the Raikage's Office, Ketsu smirked lightly as Kiyomi stepped behind him; she wasn't scared of the Raikage, nor did she dislike him, but she left the talking to him to his own brother, whom happened to be her husband.

"You do realize that at some point, we're going to need a few days off, right Nii-sama? Missions day in and day out... we need a break. All due respect of course, but you know we've gotta recover... I do, anyway, though Tsuma-san may be at her peak already." Smiling at Kiyomi, Ketsu turned his attention back to the Raikage, Mitsukai. "So what's the Mission, Nii-sama?" [/ketsu]

Mitsukai turned towards his door as it opened, revealing his big brother and sister-in-law, Mitsu's bright blue eyes lit up at the sight of them, even with Ketsu complaining about the lack of rest Mitsu couldn't help but be happy to see them. "I understand that, and I wouldn't have called you in if this wasn't urgent. Though I am pretty sure this mission might help make up for it, well after its completion that is. To put it simply, there is an Onsen in a small mountain village, not too far from here that the Daimyo wishes to use for a small private gathering. The problem with that is that there had been reports of vicious attacks in the area, however the reports have been unclear as to whether the attacks were bandit, ninja, or beast. I had sent a team of chuunin, and a jounin to the area to investigate and take care of the problem over a week ago and they have yet to report in."

Mitsukai would wait a few moments before continuing to let that news sink in, "The Daimyo's event is scheduled for three weeks from now, so I need you two to go to the area, investigate, find out what happened to our people, and take care of whatever is behind the attacks. Once that is done, you can send a message by bird and take the rest of the time from completion to the Daimyo's event to relax there. Your next mission will begin after the Daimyo arrives, you are to protect him until he leaves."

Letting his voice lighten up a bit, to something a bit less somber and serious, in fact it was almost playful and joking he would add finally. "if you get down there and find that the previous team was just slacking off in the hot spring let me know, I will personally come down and kick them back to the village, and let you two have your little vacation anyways."

[ketsu]Damn it..
Being worried runt?
Last thing I need to this day is YOU getting chatty
humph.. Just you wait.. you'll get yours..

Kiyomi sighed and tossed her hands in the air in frustration, which seemed both out of place considering she was just handed a mission, something she's usually overeager to do, and the fact she was in the presence of the Raikage, who she generally doesn't say much infront of, before walking off to go get ready to leave the village, which was further not like her. She stopped at the door though as she caught herself from her wildstorm of emotion and shook her head, she spun on a heel put her hands on her hips and stuck her tongue out at the two Uchiha before taking in a deep breath and exclaiming calmly, "I'm pregnant."

Flash of Red.

Kiyomi was halfway home to get ready for her joint mission with Ketsu. By the time he caught up she'd probably be ready to go, but she suspected, and hoped, they would be delayed somewhat by a certain conversation taking place in light of newly revealed information.[/ketsu]

Ketsu Uchiha

The mission was pretty simple, and the reward was fairly nice, even though Ketsu himself would have drastically preferred to stay home rather than attend an Onsen, considering their followup mission he couldn't really argue with the logic of it. He secretly hoped that the previous team was simply slacking off though, since it would mean the entire three weeks was theirs without pause. Regardless, he shrugged his shoulders and turned to face his wife with a soft half-smile.

"I guess we have no choice, eh?" He stated calmly towards her as she tossed her hands in the air and acted out, storming off towards the door only to catch herself briefly and turn around, sticking her tongue out, and stating two words very calmly before disappearing in her nickname, a red flash.

All of the time Ketsu had been a Shinobi, he'd seen and heard and felt so many things that it was rare for him to be at a loss for words. His Sharingan was extremely advanced, and even that couldn't have prepared him for the two words his wife said before disappearing, and he was frozen in place, that same half-smile still on his face as he simply blinked at Kiyomi's former position, the blinking becoming more and more rapid as he turned around and faced his younger brother, the smile fading into a blank expression.

"...Did she just." Turning to see the door again, Ketsu knew his wife would already be almost ready to go at this point, and certainly be waiting for him by the time he got there at any pace, but that didn't stop him from taking off after her, going into the Pinyin: Yin state to speed himself up, arriving at the house only a bit slower than she had, stopping himself as much as he could before tackling her with a hug tightly, his light weight due to Pinyin and the slowed speed making it more like a regular hug even though he threw himself into it at the last moment.

Re-acquiring himself, Ketsu stood back up and descended from Pinyin, returning to his normal self as he smiled at his crimson-haired wife, eyes bright even in their matte black.

"When did you find out? Is it a boy or a girl? Do you want to stay here or go somewhere else there's another house that's up for sale and we can afford it without a hitch especially if I take a few extra missions or tutor more at the academy! Oh my god Kiyomi!"

Uzumaki "Uchiha" Kiyomi, Jonin (Tier 2)
She was indeed waiting for her husband though she was placing her scythe in a scroll via sealing jutsu which she slid into a hidden space on her person when he arrived, he hugged her and she him before he started in on the barrage of questions she knew was coming, "A couple of hours before the end of my last mission.. Kurama started complaining about sharing the space with our child.. though he stubbornly refuses to tell me if it is a boy or girl. All he's done is complain since."

She giggled and broke the hug, "We only need to move if you feel the need to move. Though with there only being one room here... May be a bit cramped for a child's crib." he exclaimed oh my god Kiyomi and she giggled again before kissing him softly, "Now now we have plenty of time to plan and make preparations. I'm pregnant not invalid. Despite the nurses complaints they couldn't stop me from remaining on active duty because I passed their physicals. I admit it is because I am a jinchuriki, but nonetheless I passed meaning I can safely perform my duty for our home."

She tossed a ninja tool pouch towards him and winked, "Besides.. I would think that a place with a hot spring may do wonders for my body. So shall we get started?"

uchiha ketsu, tier 1 jŌnin
Ketsu's mind buzzed with the fact that he was a father, that they were both parents, that his brother was an uncle, and the fact that he was going to have a child with the genuine love of his life. A brief flash of anxiety and worries flooded his brain, but Kiyomi's hug immediately shattered it and emptied those levies, reassuring him that nothing would go wrong even if she didn't know it.

As Kiyomi stated that they would only move if he wanted to, he nodded fiercely. His mind raced trying to remember where the other big houses were, and one piqued his interest. He knew Kiyomi would get there first if they raced, so he'd have to check it out later... he could afford it too, since his pockets were unlimited lately, and he was the strongest Ninja in the village aside from his brother, though his wife would beat him any time they sparred. He caught the ninja tool pouch tossed at him, the tattoos on his fingers lighting up briefly as he sealed the tools away in his fingers, securing the pouch at his side anyway.

"I have some ideas about where we can move to. I'll handle that stuff when we get back next week. Whatever ends up happening on this mission, make sure you stay safe babe... We both know I'm just being paranoid now, but sincerely please make sure you're safe." As he spoke, he locked the doors behind them and started off towards the Hot Springs, making sure to give Kiyomi enough space that she could take off if she wanted to while he tried to keep up, though he expected her to stay close to him as he offered a hand for her to hold, the two shining stars of Kumogakure off on another mission.
