Kiba lead the way through the streets of Konoha, Kankuro trailing slightly behind him. Kiba was leading Kankuro down the shortest path possible to get them to his house, so it involved lots of short cuts. Every once in a while Akamaru would bark at Kiba, or Kankuro's puppet Karasu would rattle and click. After hopping over the last fence they needed to cross, Kiba turned back to Kankuro with a curious look on his face.
"Hey Kankuro-san, I was wondering if you could tell me why you Sand ninjas are here in Konoha. It must be a good reason, or otherwise Tsunade-sama would have probably killed you herself. I haven't been paying much attention to the goings on lately since I have been training with my mother and my sister. And are you and Gaara the only two here? I haven't seen your scary sister. What was her name, again?"
