To the Sandaime Hokage, I have to thank you quite a lot for writing to me. It was rather unexpected to have a letter come in from you so soon. All in all, a pleasant surprise. I did wish to write about meeting you, but it seems you got there first! I wish to come visit Konohagakure, as I would like to see you in your own setting. Besides, the desert can be rather unpleasant to those who have not spent their lives in it, I would hate for you to be uncomfortable. All I do wish for our villages is to coexist in peace and be allies, not bicker and lose lives from both sides once more. We would be much stronger together, so I do hope this visit will ensure good vibes. Akira Jimmu-Mikoto, Second Sultan On The outskirts of Fire Country, you could see a desolate land, and perhaps further than that, you can begin to see Kaze no Kuni. He had been there many times before, but the blood of his enemies had always stained the sand beneath his feet. But, he wondered now, would it be beautiful, and serene? He would not know for now, but maybe just maybe it would be known to him later on. He had not listened to the letter, as being in Konohagakure and meeting was too dangerous at the moment, the elements of people, conspired against such a meetings. When tempers flared who knew what would happen, that is why he was here on the outskirts of Fire Country, the land of Fire to meet his rival, and perhaps starting today his newfound partner in progression and peace. His bodyguards numbered about a dozen all scattered around him while he waited. On one side, a green lush land, while on the other something more chaotic and dark from days gone by, he set up another chair in front of him for the Sultan when he arrived.
