She smiled at him, and it was mostly genuine, laced with only the slightest bit of secondhand embarrassment. It was sort of an awkward way to praise someone, and she couldn’t help feeling like there was a bit of superiority in the way he’d complimented her. Then again, she might have been hoping deep down inside that she didn’t come off that way. Giving too much of a damn compared to those around you could certainly be grating.[/blockquote]
Well, this was an informative day. She’d considered asking him to use his bugs for this, but she wasn’t exactly sure how tiring him using his bugs this way would be. Some methods of search and sensing were particularly tiring, she knew, and she hadn’t wanted to embarrass him by asking him to do something he couldn’t (or embarrass herself by not knowing that). She agreed, standing relatively near him so she could move quickly if anything did come for him. She put her tracker on and activated it.
Regardless of what she knew about the Aburame, she couldn’t help feeling just a little freaked out by the sheer number of bugs they had, or the fact that the bugs were inside them. It wasn’t the thought itself, really—just the spectacle of the bugs evacuating his body was enough to make Suzu’s stomach churn a little. As the writhing mass of life flew into the sky, Suzu considered them for a moment, and then nodded. “Sure, as long as you’re prepared to move without them if need be.” Of course, Suzuka was prepared to fight, but she would still be prepared to follow protocol if need be as well. You never knew what kind of threats could pop up in such a situation.
She looked around. It wasn’t often that she really sat and camped out in one spot in the forest like this. She’d been taking less local missions lately. It was nice to sort of hang out like this, she supposed—then again, she’d still rather be doing something fun. Was it bad that she sort of hoped something would come up…? Yeah, probably. But hey, maybe she’d get paid more for it. It’s not like she’d never done that for an official mission before. She would have an extra burden this time, though—she’d have to keep her partner out of danger. And she wasn’t confident about doing that without knowing exactly how he fared in a combat situation. You never really knew with Genin—such things could be jarring. “About how long? And in case of emergency, how fast can you get them back?”
