Isella watched with a raised brow as Chise started to scribble on a piece of paper with some ink. She was drawing something; though the clone paid no mind to it. It was probably a recreation of the mapping for her own self. However, Isella was prompted with a set of questions, which the subtle change in her posture showed her newly acquired mood, puzzlement. Chise is a smart girl, and Isella, or more so Mirabelle is proud that her adopted sibling was capable of questioning her, instead of blindly following orders like others. While she demanded her word be the law of the village, she never took the freedom of objection from the people, even more so if they can provide solidified basis that proves her actions are the weakest link. She wasn’t going to hide anything from Chise however as she leaned inward and placed her chin onto her interlocked fingers. “It’s as it sounds, Chise. Take over of the Iron Peninsula. What more is there to explain?” she questioned her back. Isella knew how to address this one, as she got up from her seat to make another round of tea for herself. “It’s as simple as that, comply with us and make a proper peace treaty though of course in favor of the village’s benefits or we take it by force” she said pouring the tea into the cup. “There’s been a bit of resistance, but for the most part the Samurai has been cooperating with us, at least that’s what they want us to think…” Isella said with a word of suspicion on her shoulders. “I wouldn’t put it past them trying to create a civil war later on, but that is why I wish for you to go to the Iron Peninsula as my ambassador. We’ve taken these landmarks are our own, but there is still one more that is on the clock” she turned, walking to the map and pointing to the location. “Hachiman’s Bulwark, it’s the largest settlement in the area, guarded with some of the strongest Samurai to exist in the lands. They will be the hardest convince or the hardest to beat. Sado and his ways, while they are slowly being phased out, we have to realize that some things wont ever change. And that includes the behavior of some people. The Samurai are too stubborn for their own good, thinking that remaining neutral all these years wouldn’t draw attention to them. Isolating themselves and keeping their secrets, when Shinobi and Samurai can unify underneath one banner and create a strong bond. So, i wish for you to meet with my familiar. He is at Takemikazuchi’s Anvil, currently tasked with completing the final preparations for the alliance there in that location. Then, we move to Hachiman as our final act. I will arrive their over time, but I have other matters to attend with here in the village, so please. I ask of you to be vigilante and execute this to the best of your abilities. I’ve taught you everything I possibly can, but now its time to show me the fruits of your training and knowledge. Keep this with you, and contact me if anything, ok?” she said handing her communications scroll.
She would turn, as she looked at the Nara standing around. “Cat’s got your tongue too? Speak my dear Shadow Tribesman”
