So, you graduated huh? I hope you haven't gotten in trouble since then.
To his surprise, Rinji felt his feet being lifted slightly off the grassy floor of the training grounds. Something like a kitten, the genin closed his blue eyes in comfort as his thick hair was stroked.
"I sure did graduate! Topped at interrogation and ninjutsu!" The boy answered proudly, returning Bakuhatsu's smile. He was beginning to enjoy the presence of the flirtatious female. Rinji still had yet to turn to face his jonin squad-leader, in fear of being scolded. He hadn't remembered hearing about a gathering of the team, but rushed to the training fields after hearing their voices drift.
"No need to worry Rinji, this meeting was impromptu anyway. But I was just talking about the Chuunin exams. You see, they're coming up in Kumogakure in a month and I've recommended you for it."
The blond child faced his jonin, and heaved a small sigh of relief once hearing that the meeting was by coincidence. His relief was washed over with a wave of excitement swiftly at the delivery of a bigger kind of news - the chuunin exams. "Us?! Really?!" His pale blue eyes widened with a mixture of surprise and elevation while his rushed words were cut short with a sort of bubbly laugh. "We'll do well to make you proud, Koichi-Sensei!" It was a genuine promise, and the smile on his youthful face grew wider. Rinji waved Kami goodbye in return, still fazed by the news.
" Hey there, name's Akatsuchi. Nice to meet you."
Another youth, black-haired and a little older, strode towards Rinji in confidence. His mature, formal greeting was in stark contrast to Bakuhatsu's cheery one, and the genin's flaxen hair was still ruffled from the petting. "Hi - I'm Rinji." The boy took Akatsuchi's hand in return and gave a short, firm handshake. RInji was amicable, "Looks like we'll be on the same team now."
