Menza raised an eyebrow when Nozomi mentioned that she had defeated Isobu without prior preparation. He analyzed the girl's micro-expressions and determined that she wasn't lying. Of course Honiko could have trained her to hide her tells but Menza didn't take Nozomi for a liar and a bragger. She was saying what she was saying because it was true and she wanted to set aside his concerns. The two shook hands and the deal was sealed. He hoped Nozomi would keep up her end of the bargain. Menza hated to lose and he wasn't about to have Honiko's disciple run roughshod over him. Hizashi rarely involved himself with such squabbles but Menza knew that deliberately going back on such a critical deal would be unacceptable for even him.
Menza knew that if he simply asked for Yui's hand she would give it to him. Not because she liked him but because she'd do anything to save Rin. Menza smirked and nodded. "Alive and well" Nozomi then went on to ask about means of contact and how he wished to stage his death.
The mad scientist shook his head.
"I won't be faking my death. I want the world to know that Menza Sukiyama still lives. It will hopefully keep them on their toes. If they are going against you they'll need every incentive to work hard. That's good for you too because I don't see how you can expect to fight with the wolves at night if you spend all day sparring with puppies."
The monologuing descendant then said:
"As for contacting me, that will be done through Hizashi. Only Hizashi will know where I am. If you wish to contact me, pass a message through him. If its anything super important I can meet with you personally. My payment can be dropped off at the Isle of Whispers and I'll have an intermediary pick it up."
With that, Menza's business on the surface world was complete. He had much work to do and the best way to do it was to go underground (quite literally). The Nature Clansman held out his hand and a bird flew to him. The creature perched on his index finger and began chirping to him. Birds are such gossipers
he noted to himself. Another landed on his shoulder and told him another story.
It seemed as though the man was wasting time. He looked at the birds and casually began speaking.
"I read the letter that Tatsu-sama addressed to you....my how pathetic and desperate they are~" His own interactions with Nee-san came to mind. "I always believed Honiko to be a zealot but I've come to realize that she was right about one thing. These people are not fit to rule themselves. Whichever way this war of yours goes I don't particularly care, but I do think you are on the right side of things. Any civilization that would let someone like Neko-sama have such power is doomed to fail. Like any failed experiment, the best course would be to start over."
Menza turned to his leader.
"Wouldn't you agree?"
How ever she choose to respond Menza would give a slight chuckle. He'd move his body and the birds would fly away. The man would then toss a Flying Thunder God marked kunai into the dirt and then teleport out of the area.
After a few minutes, Rin Uchiha would be teleported into the area right in front of Nozomi. He'd be unconscious and missing an hand, but otherwise he'd be in perfect health. A note would be attached to his forehead.
I have delivered one Rin Uchiha to your doorstep. He will need a temporary drug regimen in order to restore himself to full health but otherwise he should be fine. I shall write the appropriate treatment on the back of this note. Please give it to his local physician.
I look forward to receiving my compensation from you. Until we meet again!
[The back of the note contained a drug regimen for doctors to follow]
