I would not say “let down”, so much as made them worry. Kiba speaks of you, a lot. *smiles*
That is very good to hear. Seeing all the little genin grow up into strong shinobi.
… Does he? /…smile
Yes, we have all grown much since we first formed our teams. It seems like it has been years.
He misses all his friends. *smiles softly*
It has been. *laughs* Three, four years.
Well, yes… It has, hasn’t it. It has felt like so many more. But I believe that is a good thing. It means we have done so much in such a relatively small amount of time.
*laughs again* Yes, it really has been~
That is a good feeling… ah, I wish I could say the same. All I have done is look after the dogs this whole time, while everyone else is running around doing important things…
That does not have to remain the case, there are others who can help you with caring for the dogs. You can take up more missions. And if you desired, I am always eager to practice sparring with different opponents.
*puts hands on her hips, sighing out* A little easier said than done. They rely on me, at the kennel. A little too much, heh.
Ah, you are, are you? You know I am an Inuzuka, huh? We are known for our strong bloodline! If you really want to spar against me~
You may be from the same clan as Kiba, but that does not mean you fight the same as him. Perhaps you have similar techniques, inherited from your family… But I do not believe you fight like him. I am happy to spar with you if you would want to, but it does not matter to me what you decide. Let me know anytime if you would want to do so.
