[Sept 26th] Team 8 celebratory outing [Open to: all]

It was evening. Kurenai felt buoyant and at the same time depressed. Happy because she had managed to convince Neji and Hiashi that Hinata needed to get out and be with her team (at the very least). Neji had been reluctant to agree after Kurenai asked him not to come along, but it had been quite amusing to watch Hinata tell him he should spend some time with Tenten. (Of course, it would not have been politic to be amused at the other Hyuuga's expense, but still.)

Hinata was adjusting to her lack of vision, though it was more because of the bandages over her eyes than anything else. They wouldn't know how successful the operation was until the second, when the bandages came off. But Kurenai was proud at how Hinata was walking if not with confidence, then by herself, asking only that Kurenai help her if there was an obstacle to avoid, but for now she was keeping step with Kurenai.

She'd told the boys to meet them at a bar relatively close to the compound, well within Byakugan range because she knew Neji would be looking in, regardless. She knew he trusted her, but the concern was touching. She just hoped it wasn't smothering--another reason for this night out.

"How're you feeling, Hina-chan?"

"Neji's not smothering you, is he?" she asked.
Perhaps before an answer could be given, the door to the bar burst open and Kiba stood there as proud and arrogant as he possibly could. He at least dressed relaxed, finding that a night with his team wasn't the time to be decked out as a shinobi.

He moved over quickly to throw both arms around the two most important women in his life (outside of his mom and sister) and gave Kurenai and Hinata one armed hugs. "Heya!" A bit happy? Yes, yes he is.

"Indeed," Kurenai grinned. "Congrats."

She had had the same idea as Kiba; that is, she wasn't dressed like a shinobi. A loose, long-sleeved crimson shirt with a V-neck over black slacks and shoes. Her hair, unruly as ever, was tied back in a ponytail. Or most of it, anyway. She still had bits getting in her face.

"You and Akamaru doing well?"
"Akamaru's still restin'. Neji got him hard." That was the bad thing about sustaining damage in that form. He shook his head as he slid into a barstool on the otherside of Hinata, still keeping an arm draped over her shoulder. "Still can't believe I passed by givin' up. That's somethin' a Nara would do!".

He then peered at Hinata sideways. "How you doin'?" He could take a break out of his victory dance to make sure his teammate was doing fine.

The smile twitched higher on Shino's lips as he pulled his good arm around Hinata for a brief hug. His not-quite-as-good arm twitched a little, starting to move against the bandages but held perfectly still. The movement caused another brief flurry of kikai action over his skin, a few brushing against Hinata for a moment before directing their attention to his arm again.

"I'm fine," he nodded to the sensei, figuring the hug was enough of an apology for not speaking and that all direct questions were best answered. Satisfied that both women were in tact and happy, Shino spared a silent glance for Kiba.
Kiba ordered whiskey for his drink. He had a taste of the non-Fire country brew from his sister a while back and liked the bitter, burning taste. And if Sensei was buying, then all the better!

He was quiet while Shino and Hinata greeted each other, and he was assessing the damage on Shino. For Kiba, his wounds were simply shown to be bruises here and there, though a concentration seem to be in the neck area, and they could be seen disappearing into his shirt. Shino would recognize the bruising pattern. Those were Jyuuken wounds.

"Yo, Shino. Glad t'see ya up and walkin'," he said, figuring he'd at least wait a bit before goading his teammate into something.
"Good to see all three of you are doing well." Sakura leaned against the bar, nodding to Kurenai and sneaking a mednin-glace at Hinata. Relaxing, she smiled when she noticed that Hinata seemed to be enjoying herself.

"How're you feeling, Hina-chan?"

"I did. Left him a little worse for wear, but he should be back to his usual youthfulness by now." She grinned, and took a drink of her tea. "Looks like your boys didn't fare as well as I did, though."
Another tiny smile started to steal its way across Shino's face, but was promptly arrested as his eyes flicked over the familiar bruising patterns. His bandaged arm twitched again. Thankfully, the fact that he couldn't move it more than a centimetre or two prevented him from reaching up and petting Kiba understandingly. Slightly aloof lack of involvement; maintained. The little look was there, though, and he was quite sure his teammate understood that it meant 'Glad you survived too. Feel better soon.'

The look he swiveled around on Sakura was slightly less readable. His eyebrows hardly twitched, and his mouth stayed in its usual straight line. It was nevertheless a look, which a teammate would have been able to read as something like annoyance and curiosity. Making a few little mental connections which would undoubtedly lead to a logic-jump for all those who couldn't read his mind, he asked passively, "Do you know how Lee-san is doing?"
"The damage to his inner ear is throwing him off like mad. Plus the damaged sustained from the kikai's tunnelling and gnawing on his chakra pathways will be a pain to fix, but he'll be fine. Once he's been worked on, that is." Sakura shrugged. "Between Hinata and the exams, our best medics are a bit short on chakra. It'll take a couple days for complete recovery, then we can get everyone back to normal and on their feet again, as it were. But yeah, he'll be fine."
