Taka and Zinan arrive at the chamber, when they hear a dog barking. They turn around to see Yang running towards them.
"Yang?" Zinan catches him in his arms.
"Where's Senichi?" Taka frantically looks around, but doesn't locate the green-haired boy anywhere. Tears start to form under her eyes.
Zinan puts down Yang and turns to his friend.
"Taka, you go find Kisame. I will figure out what happened to Senichi."
She starts to protest, but stops knowing it won't do her any good. They hug and go their separate ways. Taka turns towards the building and takes a big breath.
"You can do this." She looks down at the ring Senichi gave her this morning. "He is definitely in for it once I see him. Kisame Hoshigaki, today is the last day you will ever step foot in this village." She walks in.
Itachi watches her and creates a crow to send up to his partner waiting in the main office. Kisame is sitting at the desk, reading the papers.
The new Mizukage was going to be named today.
