"The Hokage hasn't decided on who will be joining us but he did say he was working on a team. I know Akagi and some of his men may join us while the others remain at the village."
Takeda let out a slight grunt, but said nothing more. He wanted to see who this "Jonin" was, and why he wasn't good enough. Did the Hokage think he was still too weak? Had he not proven that wrong this past year? Takeda shook his head and kept quiet as the others talked.
"I'm sure that you two would be welcome to join us. The more the merrier I always say."
"I'll pass for now. I think I'll speak with Akagi and his men...besides I'm certain the two of you have much to catch up on," Takeda said with a small smile hidden behind his mask.
