Naturally there was speculation and concerns of what Sayū was up to, especially since they would soon be dealing with the Black Market. Sayū was always one that would play his cards close to his chest. He was well aware that he could’ve gone through Takewa, but this one, it had to be kept quiet. There couldn’t be noise or else it would only bring unneeded eyes. “Do you remember when Ketsugo had visited us at the estate?” he responded to Hinome. The question was rhetorical and it did not need a response and therefore he continued speaking. “He said that Lord Heiwa, Owatatsumi, and the Land of Fire forces had vanished. Their last known location? Land of Earth.” Sayū’s eyes narrowed into the now visible city through the desert mirage. “Rumor is that the Tsuchikage during that time had left the Land of Earth and his whereabouts were unknown. In efforts to locate him to find out what happened, I hired the services of a tracker to hunt down the whereabouts of the Tsuchikage.”
As someone who is known to be casual outside of combat and move at a leisurely speed, Sayū was walking rather quickly now. He however did not skip out on any explanation. “Which is why I’m in such a hurry. Information such as whereabouts are subject to change at any given moment. He could have very well have already left. There is something suspicious about all of this if I must admit myself. One of them being, why the Tsuchikage had left after Lord Heiwa had gone missing. I fear the Land of Earth may have played some hand in it.” If Hinome had any further questions, he’d answer them transparently. He knew she was worried and it was why he was being excessively transparent. “If the Tsuchikage has played some part. I’ll ensure that the Land of Earth no longer exists.” To hear someone say these words in such a casual and effortless manner was terrifying because you knew he meant it.
Eventually Takewa began speaking about some Ox Training School and of some coats given to him. This prompted Sayū to look over at Takewa with a visibly confused expression painted on his face. He hadn’t a single idea of what the man was talking about and it was very evident. Even the tone he replied to with Takewa was full of confusion, caution, and a hint of frustration. “I have no idea what you’re talking about.” Sayū turned his head back toward the city, but his eyes had been fixated on Takewa through the corner. There was something odd about Takewa. He couldn’t place a figure on it, but it was apparent to him something was off. “We’re almost there. Are you both ready?”
