1.5 | The First Test
In the fluttering torchlight and near-darkness, only the wood underfoot could be seen. The walkways on the Sand Village's underground lake periodically crossed and spread out into large platforms. All above and around the lapping water echoed, rippling in the black.

An elder jounin sat at the head of a nexus of paths with a clipboard in hand. A dozen chuunin stood around the edges at attention, watching the gathering genin closely.

Re: 1.5 | The First Test
Hisoka arrived from one direction and was able to see four more genin arriving from others. She wasn't the first to find the place either: already a number of shinobi stood on the platform, though they were fewer than the number she had seen in the guest compound. Many were from the Hidden Leaf, but she also recognised the red-haired girl who had left the booth without a card and the flashy Iwa-nin boy.

Neither Rejima nor Kisara were among them.

Re: 1.5 | The First Test
Hisoka smiled and made her way over to the group.  She will approach quietly and subtly as possible, though she doubts anyone who is going to pass the exam has not noticed her.  She is a bit curious about how the other redhead found her way here, and makes a mental note that this girl is either brilliant, lucky, or both.  Part of her mourned for her comrades, but another part cheered to not have to compete with the two best warriors she knew.  She would have to use some downright dirty tricks to beat both of them...

After all, they were fighters and fighters had an advantage in this tournament.  What use does one have for brains if you can cut your foe down with one stroke?

Re: 1.5 | The First Test
Dropping from the ceiling, Akira picks his nose and looks around with a pleasant smile hidden under his scarf, but the outline still obvious. "We did it! Yatta!" he exclaims and dances in a circle, pumping his small fists. The small boy full of good cheer. Flipping rather arbitrarily, he looks around at the others gathered, and immediately tries to look cool. His body tensing up as he strikes a dramatic pose.

So cool.

His rigid stance tipping to the side suddenly, as his awkward pose has thrown off his balance, he wavers for a moment, and then looks back toward his team-mates. "I told you guys, that wasn't part of the test! We're the best!"

Re: 1.5 | The First Test
Michiru is a bit puzzled as he walks in the nexus where everyone else was. That was too easy. What's the point of training really hard with Shirohiko-sensei if the barrier of entry to the Chuunin test is this low? Those who didn't pass in this test certainly had a very lacking training or didn't dedicate themselves enough. The young Uchiha is a little annoyed. He wanted to be tested.

He takes a deep breath and contains himself. Surely they'll be tested in the near future, all he needs to do is to wait patiently. "We're not the best, Akira. At least not yet. That was just the beginning," he says, hoping to ground Akira on reality. Michiru looks around, wondering if he can recognize anyone. He does see the girl that ate with them before.

Re: 1.5 | The First Test
"I could have found it sooner, but the guy with the cards didn't give everyone the same chance to get them!" Akira defends his assertion that they are indeed the best with a look of sheer determination. They might not be the best, but there was no reason to question it now. A look at the jonin in charge and the actions of the others seemed to indicate that they should wait.

But Akira isn't good at waiting.

"What do we do now?" he asks loudly.

"We wait, I think," he says, still looking around for familiar faces.

Re: 1.5 | The First Test
Hiromitsu and his teammates arrived a few minutes after Squad 9. Akimichi Nana waved at them. Hiromitsu seemed fixated by something on the ceiling. Also present were the pretty boy and the paper girl from Akira booth and the small girl from the Waterfall Village.

"Your comrade is correct, Iwamoto Akira. We wait until 2 pm before the next part begins."

Re: 1.5 | The First Test
Michiru waves back to Nana. Then, he calls Hiromitsu and his team with a silent gesture with his hands, so they can talk while they wait for the next round of the text. He noticed he was fixated by something on the ceiling and quickly looked up. "What's up? Any trouble getting here?," he asks him.

Re: 1.5 | The First Test
"It must be almost two then, right?" Akira asks and scratches his head a little before walking over to a wall and taking a seat. He yawns then and tilts his head back, a bubble almost immediately squeaking out around his face-mask, as he starts to mildly snore. The bubble inflating and deflating with his breath.
