the funeral of kumogakure
LOCATION... within the raikage tower
OOC... please post here to be added to the roster.
The image had been intensified by the sounds of rain surrounding them. The village wept, as did the skies. With the sounds of thunder on the horizons, and the crack of lightning having yet to creep into the village, it was clear that this village, and this land had become one. It had been a mere couple of days since the dreaded attack on Kumogakure. Three unnamed, masked ninja would come in the middle of the night, and disgrace the village in ways that would remain unspeakable by most. The memorial room was massive, and held the emotion of these people sparingly. Every few minutes another person would leave the room in tears- either out of memory of their loved ones, or the memory of their kage.
Incense burned beneath a picture of him. He was smiling- it had probably been taken by one of his friends, or maybe one of the academy kids. It was a nice image to remember him by. Rows of people would sit in silence as they reflected his memory, this vigil having gone on for almost half an hour by now. As the entire village was invited, the only ones not to show their faces would be those out on assignment, or still guarding the walls that once stood to protect the village. This was the second time that this village had lost its leader, and was left at an immediate loss. However, it had been known by many, if not all by now that it would be one of Eiichiro's best friends, Ishitsuru Heihachi that would be replacing him as Raikage.
He would sit in his own silence, his eyes dead with thought. Donning the typical all black that was assumed to be worn at a funeral, he would hold his pants legs with a death grip as he would look inside of himself to all of the images that he and his friend once shared. The laughs, the danger, the beauty and the horror... he would expect his fellow ninja to do the same.
