Aina had just been out on task the last few days herself and only just returned late the night prior. Truth be told, she'd slept in quite a bit herself and woken up nearly halfway through the morning. It was almost embarrassing when she woke up and realized how late it was. She was used to rising early for training but instead she found herself with a headache, every part of her incredibly sore, still feeling incredibly exhausted. She felt like she had to drag herself into a simple pair of loose fitting dark pants and a loose long sleeve shirt before getting into the kitchen. She was honestly relieved when she found Hanako in the kitchen already brewing tea for her.

"You were sleeping like the dead." Hanako said quietly as she brought her mother a cup of green tea and set it down in front of her. The now young woman's hair was pulled back into a single braid. She wore a simple floor length kimono that day, the color one that complimented the slight hint of lavender that seemed to edge the white of the Hyuuga eyes. She moved behind Aina and started pulling at the woman's hair slightly, clearly trying to tame the woman's unkempt hair and undoing the messed up braid to try adn redo it.

"I feel that." Aina admitted with a sigh. "When did I get old?" she muttered with a bit of a snort.

Hanako rolled her eyes and gave an extra tug on the woman's hair. "Your born twins are old enough to be genin now, I'm old enough to move out if I wanted, Yozei is off on his own adventures and your husband is getting old enough to refuse to retire if he gets asked, you tell me." she teased.

"Child I will kick your ass." Aina picked up a nearby piece of paper and attempted to fling it at Hanako with both women laughing.

Hanako simply danced out of the way of course, already finished with her mother's hair and wandered back into the kitchen. "Just go back to your porch you old hag. I'll get you some kind of breakfast going."

Aina rolled her eyes as well as she got up and took her tea and a scroll with her back to the porch and made a poor imitation of an old with with a cane. "You missed a brother in your counting you know!" she called back as she finally found her lounge chair on the porch. She just laughed to herself as she got comfortable and started going over the scroll, in spite of her mind being a hundred miles away and on the mission she'd just completed and of course on what tasks she had ahead of her as well.

Yoru had being back home for quite some time now, at least five years though of course those first years he was trapped within a prison, but he’d received a pardon for his crimes and had been a free man.

Yet he still hadn’t seen her, the woman known as Hyuuga, Aina.

The Commander, slowly walked through the village people glaring at him with clear disgust and fear. Usually he didn’t let it bother him, but today he was filled with anxiety and shame because he’d finally decided to see her, finally had something to offer, finally he could find redemption.

Or so he hoped.

There was a clear lump underneath his green haori, as his arm tried to cover it up so it wasn’t as obvious but it wasn’t much use.

Coming round the corner he had a stiffness to his gate, his face was bruised and mark and their was a purple and black around his neck, clear he had been strangled. He’d almost died for what was beneath his robe.

The Natsuki estate was just up the road and he’d be there in a moment, he was anxious at the thought of knocking on the door, seeing her. But as he neared closer, he wouldn’t need to knock, there she was sat on a lounge chair, clear she hadn’t noticed him her nose buried into a scroll.

Anxiety paralysed him, his heart pumped so loud it felt as though it was going to rip from his chest. For years, Aina had haunted his nightmares her and the other Hyuuga.

He went to say her name, but nothing came just silence.

One might call it the curse of an ever present and ever active Byakugan. She might have been reading over a scroll, but as he drew nearer, Aina could see the form of the approaching figure rather easily through it. In most cases this wouldn't tell her who it was, but an oddity around one of the eyes made it unmistakable. She hadn't seen him in years, but had heard rumors enough to know. She carefully and deliberately rolled up the scroll and set it aside, picking up her tea to take a long drink from it to finish it even as she saw him nearby. She set the cup down and swung her feet off the lounge chair to stand. She rather pointedly fixed her white eyes on him for a moment as she simply looked at the ginger-haired man before her and took a moment to notice the bruising on him. "I thought you would have stopped by a long time ago, Yoru." she finally said, albeit quietly.

Aina finally walked down off the porch and stepped over to him. Her hands glowed briefly with the tell-tale green of Iijutsu as she reached up a hand to touch the bruising on his neck. If he tried to stop her she might try to slap his hand away, not entirely willing to take no for an answer in the moment. After a few minutes of using Mystical Palm on whatever had left the bruising at his neck she'd reach up to his eye patch without asking and lift it to look at his eye. She'd bristle visibly at what she saw as she looked at him and shook her head though she didn't say anything about it.

'I suppose he always did admire it.' she thought to herself.

"So what finally brought you here? What kept you?"

It was clear immediately that Aina had achieved only what a few Hyuuga had, the ability to have the byakugan constantly active as she clocked sight of him without even looking. An achievement, if it could be called as such was also bestowed on Yoru but due to the transplant he had no choice, he kept it at bay through the fuuinjutsu he had crafted, which was sealed on the eyepatch across his face.

He didn’t say a word as she walked over to him, the obvious iijutsu teal chakra glowed as it rested against his neck, his hand edged to hers as though to pull it away but he didn’t he simply left his hand on hers, holding it gently.

He whimpered softly “I wanted to, but I couldn’t…” as she said she thought he’d of stopped by a long time ago, he didn’t respond to what had brought him here. He could barely speak as his head slumped down in shame, his long red hair falling over his face. The cold, heartless commander was now putty in Aina’s hands.

Aina sighed quietly as she let the eyepatch slip back into place and let her hand rest against his cheek. "You could've." she told him quietly, letting her thumb run across his cheek gently. "Hell, Yoru... if you had just come to me I might've willingly given you one of mine instead." she told him, shaking her head as she turned away and started towards the house. As she turned, her hand shifted to slip over his to try and pull him along with her and lead him towards the house. Assuming he went along she'd lead him inside towards the kitchen table. "Hanako! We have a guest, I hope there's enough for another!" she called.

"Sure, I can make enough!" Came Hanako's answering voice from the small kitchen.

Aina would lead Yoru over to a chair and even pull it out to get him to sit in it before sitting down with him. She leaned on the table with her elbow resting on it as she looked at him. "You know I'm going to call it ironic if that eye is why you've been so scared to see me right? The clan still calls me 'The Usurper' behind my back." she said with a quiet sigh and an attempt at a chuckle.

Yoru’s left eye tightened up, the veins in the side of his face bulged as blood pumped though them, he’d never felt as much shame as he had right now as his own byakugan looked into Aina’s. Yet he was shocked she didn’t despise him but offered one of her own eyes to him if only he’d of asked. How could she be so forgiving and so generous?

Even offering him refreshments and a sit in her home. Slipping the eyepatch down, his eye was deactivated.

He sighed softly and shook his head “They shouldn’t be calling you that, you’re the most powerful Hyuuga in all of Konoha but I have something… for you that might be able to help.” He said, though he still kept the box within the inside picket of his haori.

Aina chuckled at Yoru's comments about her horrible nickname, though she didn't disagree with him. It was an argument she'd had until she was blue in the face and even crying not all that long ago it seemed like. Yet it was an argument she always seemed to lose. "You're right, they shouldn't. Not for the reasons they gave it to me anyway." she commented as she leaned back in her chair and sighed. "I was a child, a Chunin, when our clan leader was killed and the scrolls taken by Yaku and Enma. I couldn't have stopped them, but no they'd rather say it's my fault for not dying too. I was the equivalent of a stuffed toy in their arms, not even worthy of a hostage, but they don't see it that way." A serious expression crossed her face for a moment as she shook her head. "I used to have nightmares of their faces every night, and to me their faces were damnation... but I heard the words of the elders and that damn nickname."

But mirth and a smile returned and the woman laughed again as she leaned forward and grinned at her friend. She even reached out and put a hand on his knee. "No, now that I'm a Bannin that nickname puts a real fear into those who don't know the origin of it, honestly it's kinda funny now." she said, giving his knee a light squeeze before she looked at him a moment. "Now, what did you bring, Yoru?"

As the two were speaking, Hanako soon emerged from the kitchen. She had with her a simple serving tray which she placed on the small table between them. She set before each of them an empty tea cup before pouring from the teapot a fresh serving of green tea and placing a cup of sliced fruit with it as well as a small bowl of simple white rice and fish. It was a simple enough breakfast, light since clearly Aina had been planning an easy day. The girl paused in her serving to touch the top of Aina's hand lightly before glancing at Yoru. "Anything else I can get you, Yoru-Sama?" she asked. Her voice was light as the air. Her hair had been brushed out well that morning with a shine to it though her eyes still held a light shadow under them of scarring from her childhood traumas in the invasion when her own vision had nearly been lost. Yet in spite of it she had a smile to offer as she waited to see if the breakfast was enough to offer the man.

Behind her, Aina was simply smirking.

Shivers almost ran down his back as she spoke of the scrolls being taken and the clan blaming her, how could they do such a thing? Your was barely a man himself when it happened he could barely think back on the moment without instilling fear. He had heard rumors of how harsh the Hyuuga Clan we’re perhaps they’d even make a few Anbu member’s shiver.

As she asked what he’d brought, he moved his hand towards his green haori to open it up and retrieve the box, but stopped mid moment as Hanako came on to the porch not that she couldn’t know what he had brought but he thought best to show Aina the item in private. His single hazel eye looked directly into Hanako’s they we’re white with a slight hint of lilac. Yoru had always obsessed with the Byakugan, the untold powers it had and the mystique it’s one of the main reasons he’d attained one himself. Though this time, he was simply fascinated and wasn’t interesting in gaining more power. He’d achieved that already. He couldn’t help but notice the light scarring around her eyes, perhaps someone had attempted to steal them? Instantly making Yoru feel guilty for what was hidden beneath his eye patch.

“No, I’m fine this looks lovely thank you.” He pondered what her thoughts we’re of him, The White Eyed Demon had become quite notorious and he’d be surprised if there was any Hyuuga that didn’t know he’d stolen an eye, thought perhaps it wasn’t something that was often spoke about, though he wasn’t to know.


His eyes hadn’t yet left Hanako, as she drifted off back into the house It took him a moment to catch his bearings as he pulled out the red box that he had retrieved from Yaku’s hide out.

“This is for your Aina, I hope it can… I can redeem me in the eyes of the Hyuuga clan and forgive my discrepancies.” Inside the box was the item that had long being stolen from the village and it was now hers to do with as she wishes.
