Normally, Minx always had a shadow in the form of the Priestess of Kasha Village, but for the moment the older woman was sleeping in the small house they rented. The young girl had taken full advantage of her guardian failing to wake, packing a bag before tying her forehead protector around her neck and heading out for the day. Absolute euphoria coursed through the girls body even though currently she had no plans for where she was going, just being able to leave without escort was delightful. Right now, this day could lead her anywhere!

The first place which attracted her attention was a simple food stall along the street. Approaching she read the menu carefully before making any choices. "One grilled fish sandwich with a side of chips and lemonade to drink, please." Pulling out her wallet Minx paid the second her total was given before sitting at one of the tables to wait for her food. While she waited the girl removed one of the items in her bag, a small hard cover book which appeared to be a travel guide for the village. In spite of having been here for around seven years? Due to her prior illness the genin had gotten little chance to explore the area, so such a book was a good investment and read.

Jack was exhausted. The last time he had stopped to rest had been over twenty-four hours ago, and that had been for his own safety. At first, he thought it was one of the land's Shinobi stalking him, but at one point he had heard howling and realized the wild animals were tracking him. That had made it unsafe to sleep, as he would have had to remove at least his helmet to sleep comfortably, and rather than attempt to stop and rest he had powered his way through to Konohagakure and entered the gates there.

Having enjoyed the view from the entrance for a moment, the young adult would eventually find a place that served food that he would sit down at. Finding the one table with as few people as possible, a single female reading a book, he would decide to rest there and maybe get some food before finding a place to safely sleep. The heavy armor made the sitting down part an ordeal, having tired legs, and he sat down hard enough to rumble the table and chairs near him. Hopefully, the girl wouldn't be too angry about it. "My apologies, it has been a long road." His voice would have a slight metallic echo to it, due to the helmet still upon his head, as he attempted to calm any situation he might have accidentally started.

The small book currently lay on the table at this point. So far Minx found the volume to be an interesting read. In fact, the young girl slowly got so enamored by the book to the point she barely realized anything going on around her. Pale ears heard the clink of metal but it was not until the table rattled slightly with the weight of him sitting that she even heard it. When his voice rattled out metallic through the helmet also served as the moment she fully became aware of the male.

Her slender hand closed the book as curiosity filled her crimson gaze when it rose to look at the speaker out of polite habit. Fasciation consuming like pure fire she leaned forward her small hand extending to touch it's pale skin against the cool metal. Quickly, after the lightest of brushes she jolted back realizing she was not acting very polite. "I apologize sir. I've just never seen something like what you're wearing." sure she'd seen the armor shinobi wore and the basic stuff villagers would sometimes wear if they also happened to be warriors or hunters. Yet, none of that compared to what adorned this man. "It's alright, though I'll likely be here a while I may have ordered too little, so hopefully you don't mind the company." If she could interact with someone behind the back of priestess? Minx certainly would.

Only, she also had the motive of wondering what the reflection of fire would look like on that armor.

The small girl he had sat near did not say anything to him at first, which was an odd thing where he had grown up. Were all the people in this village going to be the same way? Or was it because he was an outsider? Either way, it would take some getting used to. The girl would seem to stare at his head as if he was a bald five-year-old and a glimpse into her eyes would give him the chills. It almost looked like she was looking at the flickering of a flame in a kiln rather than the helmet of a person.

Rather than dwell on that face, the boy would simply respond to the words given to him by her. "I take no offense, I understand I am not from around here and my armor is unique even where I originate from. I don't mind the company, as I've had a long trip and plan on eventually eating some food here before I find a place to rest for the night. My name is Jack, what may I call you?" He hadn't really talked to anyone since he had left his home weeks ago, so the thought to remove his helmet as he spoke did not cross her mind quite yet.

While people at looked at the oddity of her behavior at first once she'd returned to a more normal demeanor it seemed everyone around forgot. Minx really didn't look like much in spite of her snowy hair/skin and deep red eyes. However, that stare like one looking into the flame of a kiln's fire would very much remain in the reflection of her crimson gaze. It had sparked again and now the flames were slowly coming up to consume her mind again. Was there any safe way she could start a fire around here?

Listening to every word before she replied it was not long before a blush of shame crossed her face. "Oh no, I'm so sorry I should have introduced myself sooner, where did my manners go!" It hurt that Matatabi was so silence when she was screwing up so epically as to forget the mere act of introducing herself amongst the dancing images of flames. "Once more, I apologize Jack. My name is Minx Ulna." Bowing her head slightly as she introduced herself the female smiled softly as her head rose back up. "It can be difficult being in a new place, I moved to this village from Kasha Village myself, so I'll help you find somewhere to sleep tonight after we're done here." Maybe if she spent most of the day with him eventually the chance to see the reflection of some flame in that armor would arise! Plus, she actually did genuinely want to help him.

Sometime through their interaction one of the workers had delivered her food the sandwich being larger than the girls would easily be able to bite. Yet, somehow Minx didn't seem to have trouble taking several bites from it before their next exchange. "I will admit your armor is fairly enchanting, but can you eat like that? Because you actually came to a pretty good hole in the wall food place, I'd say this is a seven out of ten compared to the rest of the places around." Minx would know, the girl ate everywhere that she could find to get a spare bite! If he could eat past the armor it would indeed open even more time to see flames reflected, but she was also slightly curious as to what he looked like beneath it.

"Again, it's no worry. I'm a stranger in a strange land, so I'm surprised to find any conversation so soon after arriving. A pleasure to meet you, Mink Ulna. I intend to keep traveling, go to every land possible before I either go back home or find a place to stay permanently." The boy would bow lightly while seated and would wait for the girl to speak again after she had taken a few bites of her sandwich.

The question asked would cause him to blink a few times, slowly. Of course, he could not eat with the helmet on, that was something he and anyone else that wore a helmet knew to take it off for food. The helmet would be carefully removed from himself as he lightly set it down on the table. "I can eat as simply as that. Not hard for the wearer to remove, hard for everyone else to do such. So what would you recommend I eat? I should probably order something before it gets too late" With that his stomach would growl loudly, as if to punctuate just how hungry he really was. Cheeks would get warm as he felt embarrassed at the noise coming from him. "Sorry about that, haven't had a decent meal while traveling. Just rations and basic food from hunting."

Already a forth of the way through her sandwich she could tell now the food she'd ordered wouldn't be enough. "Equally a pleasure to meet you." Though it would be even better if someone would just try to light a cigar while passing them. Of course, luck wasn't shining in that direction at the moment, pity. "Having a home sounds nice. Honestly, I'll probably end up traveling my whole life eventually." While she'd love to have some place to call home? Eventually, someone who didn't agree with her was going to find out about Matatabi and leak it! At that point her only option would be to stay steps ahead of anyone who wanted to use her closest friend as a war weapon. Right now, she got to enjoy a relatively normal ninja experience but she was not so naïve as to believe it would last.

When jack removed his helmet Minx stopped short of taking another bite setting down her sandwich with wide eyes. Prior her main focus had been the armor and while it would return to that eventually for the moment simple fasciation with his appearance overtook. "Your hair, it's almost the same color as mine. I like it!" Minx had never seen someone who wasn't clearly old share the coloration before now, it was good to see she wasn't the only super pale haired person running around. "That's neat, it's probably really efficient protection if it's hard for someone else to get off." perhaps she should invest in something like that once she started making money... Incase she needed more than jutsu to protect Matatabi from those who would abuse her.

"That's alright. Best things here would be their mixed vegetable soup, the fish sandwiches, oh and the hotdogs are like fifth best in the city!" She'd wait to order more until he did to be curt, so for the moment as she finished the sandwich the girl merely moved onto the chips. "I also know where all the best sushi is." hmm, that sounded good for dinner! Relaxing for the moment she glanced at his helmet again getting an idea as she did so. "I wonder..." placing her hand on the table she grew a block of bone out of it as she lifted it until the block was about as large as the helmet. Minx set about attempting something her fingers touching to the bone. "Snap, guess I need more practice for something like this." she eventually muttered sourly when the end result of manipulating the bone looked like a rather deformed version of his helmet.
