Manzo walked the halls of the Hokage’s Mansion. As he did, he could not help but walking down memory lane. He used to spend quite a bit of time here but since he had left, it felt a little strange here again. Truth be told much of the village felt strange. He had spent too much time alone out in the wilderness that just being around so many people.

He needed to see the Hokage now and try and figure out what his place was going to be though. He could not see himself going back to his old position. There were several reasons but chief of them was he was sure that the position had been taken.

He glanced down at his new clothes. The ones that he had worn coming into the village were thrown away. There was no way that the smells and dirt would ever get out of those threadbare fabrics. But spending the money on new clothes had once again placed him in the destitute category. He might have to go hunting for dinner a few days but now that he was back amongst civilization he couldn’t bring himself to wear those clothes anymore.

Before he knew it he stood before the door. He had not been able to get much information on what had changed since he left, so he was a little unsure on what to expect. As he raised his fist and knocked on the door he realized he was about to find out.

Takeshi allowed himself a few minutes to study the paper work on his desk, he had been sorting out the day to day paper work of filing taxes, money that was incoming and outgoing from the village, the missions that needed to take top priority nothing fancy but just things to keep the time ticking by. Leaning back in his chair he allowed a sigh to escape his lips as it seemed that this was the day to day workload that he now faced.

Truth be told he was still recovering from recent events, first with frost, then will a stupid outbreak of rebellion inside of Leaf, these where things that he wanted to ignore but he knew that he couldn’t it has transpired that a lot had happened, but life seemed to be settling down if that was for better or worse was going to be something he would have to find out in the long run.

His day dreaming and thinking processes where interrupted by a knock on the door, as he allowed his eyes to look at the wooden door he wondered who could be wanting a discussion on this day, his schedule had seemed fairly empty and nothing surprising had taken place or he would have heard directly from the radio system about it. No this was someone that had come here for either a reason, or just a chat either way he was intrigued to find out which one it was. Takeshi spoke softly but allowed the voice of authority to carry itself past the door.

“Enter”

The simple command seemed to make the door open. As it swung open it revealed a figure that had not graced the Hokage’s office quite awhile. Even longer had it looked like this. Gone was the large figure that had left the village on his mission. The figure that stood before the Hokage was much closer to that of when they had first met, though several years older. What skin that could be seen revealed wiry skin taut muscles. The figure of someone that had spent far too long on the road where food was not always the most plentiful.


His eyes quickly took in the room, his posture that of someone that was relaxed, at least as much as it was able to, but ingrained habits were hard to break. As his eyes fell upon the Hokage he could only smile. He had seen so few familiar faces since he had returned. Seeing his old friend and mentor brought a happy smile to his face.


He bowed before the Hokage, giving him the respect he deserved, something he had always been happy to do before this Hokage. ”It has been quite a while, but I have returned to the village.“


As he straightened he could only wonder how his reception would be received. He had told Takashi about his mission before he had left but it had taken quite a bit longer than expected. By all rights he should be locked up as a missing-nin but so far he had managed to avoid that fate. He could only imagine that this would be the final test before that concern was put to rest.

Takeshi tried to put a face to the man that stood before him, it had been a while that much he knew already though he didn’t know where this man had been originally that was something he knew that he would have to find out. As he allowed himself a small moment of pause to consider what actions he would need to take. Leaning back in the chair he offered a seat out to the returning member as he allowed himself to smile back wondering what he had learned in that time.


“It seems that you did return to us as promised, though I have to admit a lot has changed around here since you were last inside of the village. You may have noticed that or heard whispering of rumors of what has happened since last time we spoke. Though I will answer any of those questions you have with ease, and make sure that I put your mind at rest. But first let me ask, are you ready to return and serve the village once more?”



His voice trailed off as he waited for an answer to be given about the question that he had just asked the man that stood before him. Though Manzo was back, if he was willing to serve the village would be another question all together and it was a question that he needed to have answered. After all he was Hokage now the protection of the village would fall down to him, and right now one of his Shinobi had returned he wondered what he had learnt in his time away from home.
