Turn towards the Sky [Lunar Event Topic]

A famous tourist spot and one of the many wonders of the modern world, Hokage Rock overlooks all of Konohagakure. The famed mountain is a monument to Hokage of the past and although it was damaged in the Fire Country civil war, the monument was one of the first structures rebuilt during the new era of peace. At the top of the mountain sits a large observation deck and park with vender kiosk and picture perfect spots for observing the surrounding country or having a nice picnic.

Takeshi allowed himself to look at the sky for a few moments, he allowed time to slow almost to what would be considered a stop as he watched the other lights join his on the way upwards, without any issues, without any hesitation it seemed that they where a glowing beacon inside of Konaha, and he couldn’t say that he disapproved of the message, this time of the year was a special one to most people involved and he could see the benefits of allowing everyone to come and enjoy the time that they had with him. He was sure that the future was a bright one and, in the darkness, it seemed that light always stood out. As he turned to see where the voice was coming from.

“Thank you, it is the pleasure of the village to host this festival and to celebrate another year that has passed before all of us, of course like every year it has it ups and downs but it is another year gone and of course another year to look forward to, so with all this in mind its clear that great things will be coming. But enjoy the festival take your time and have fun”

With that it seemed that Takeshi turned on his heels in the blink of an eye and left the woman to her own devices. He had done what was required of him and it was back to work as always though the smell of the trees and the gentle breeze in the air. He smiled to himself before walking away from Hokage rock, leaving those that where up there to enjoy themselves, his hand coming up and waving a short and easy good bye to everyone. It was clear that he was still that busy man that he always had been.

He too had left something behind in these days, something of which his heart would be able to ache over. "..." Turning back to who he once was, a voiceless male. Looking back up towards the sky he would leave a soft sigh. So many had let up a few lanterns already, and he was one to do the same. Seeing his father walking away from the scene.. and thinking he was amazing on the work of line.
Slowly he walked up to where the lanterns were, picking one out that had a good feeling by him. While he picked it up he thought for a moment. 'What would he be doing right now... Will he remain away from me..? Or what if I can get him back with doing this... Or should I go to the place where we first met...?' So many more thoughts were going through his mind as he slowly bit down on his tongue. 'Stay strong... love isn't over... right?' He would start to place the paper lantern together, tie a message onto it also as a message towards where ever he was. And let the lantern go.

Hoshirei had heard about the lantern flying as part of the Lunar festival in the village. She had distant memories of she and her mother painting and letting lanterns fly or float down a stream. Hoshirei was silent as she made her way to the stall to paint a lantern. She picked out a fairly large piece of paper and moved to an open space. She picked up a calligraphy brush and began painting. The symbol of the Isaki clan made its way onto the paper along with her parents names in script to honor the dead. She then drew flowers and dragons as a wish for strength and poise. She kept drawing until there was nothing else she could think of putting on the paper. A soft wind jutsu encouraged the ink to dry quickly and then she folded it according to the directions placed for those who were making their own lanterns. She then attached the frame and fuel source.

As the adhesive dried, Hoshirei carried her lantern to a clearer spot away from others in the area. She closed her eyes and thought back to just over a year ago. Had it really been only a little over a year? So much had changed for her in that small amount of time. Sometimes she wished her father hadn't crossed over yet, to have both of her parents be gone so suddenly was heartbreaking. But that heartbreak had led her to her husband, and they were content with each other even if they weren't happy with how their marriage began. And finding out Nobu was behind all of the bull her mother went through throughout the years? From that to removing the bastard from the earthly plane was one wild ride.

Just a few months ago, she still had green hair. Would her parents even recognize her if they saw her now? Maki had been quite startled to see her changed features and he lived with her day in and day out. Sure, her parents had known her for years, but she sometimes hardly recognized the face staring back at her in her mirror. She whispered softly to her lantern, "Fly and take my hopes and dreams to the spirits on the other side."

A highly controlled fireball later, the lantern was lit and she gently pushed it up into the air. Hoshirei watched as the lantern slowly lifted into the sky until it was no longer in sight. She then sighed and bowed her head in a silent prayer before making her way back home for the night.

As quickly as she arrived to speak to the Hokage, was as quickly as the Hokage had left. She let out a little groan before turning off the Screenshot jutsu that she had going. A sharp sucking of air between her teeth could be heard by the old man near her. "Guess I'm too old for him to be paying much attention to," she said as she shrugged her shoulders. A stiff wind blew through her hair, flipping it around upon her face. Moving the hair from out of her face, she turned to look towards the old fart that continued to grace her presence. "Now that this place had gotten a bit less stuffy, I think I'm going to enjoy the rest of my night," she said to the man with a smile. "Thank you for spending a little time with me. My name is Kozue. At least just for tonight," she flashed another smile at the man before deciding to make her way down the stairs, off of the Hokage-faces and down into the village-proper

Metsu thought to himself about the event so far, and felt he had partaken as much as he could of it. Saying goodbye with the minimal pleasantries he felt he could get away with, he turned to leave. It wouldn’t take long to get out of the village, and he still had work to do in moon country.
