meanwhile in Sunagakure...Ryoko paced around a table of open scrolls, ancient books, and a computer which had data on the effects of death, and jutsus made to counter it "No matter what I do, anywhere I look to find something to bring her back, there is nothing, ive used jutsus to see and to research, but Ive taken on this blindness for nothing, my work is all for nothing" but as he was yapping about his frustrations...
"Boy, it is time you served me"
Ryoko pulled kunai from his leg holster "Makara? what do you want?" asked Ryoko
"What do you mean "what do I want" remember our little deal"
Ryoko remembers when he made the deal with Makara in the Training Fields "But you helped nothing! I wasnt able to bring her back!"
"WHAT DO I CARE ABOUT YOU LITTLE FRIEND!" yelled Makara "The Deal was that I gave you heightened senses, so that your blindness will not hinder your ability to fight and gather information!"
"I-I know" Ryoko looked down "I remember now, and as a Shinobi, i must do what I have promised, fine Makara, I will serve you"
"spoken like a true slave, now, I will tell you what you must do..."
after hearing Makaras plans "...I see, I will do them right away" Ryoko grabs his jacket, and heads out into the deserts of the Land of Wind, heading towards the Leaf Village...
