Houshi just sighs with a smile, "Amon... You talk way too much." He chuckles lightly, "This won't stop me. I can't let it stop me or I won't be able thank Yukiko properly." He looks up to the night, "Just means we have that much more to go. Then, considering we've only taken the first few steps... It's a long road we walk. At least we aren't alone. That would suck."
Houshi thanks the villagers in kind but declines their offers. He only ask them to take care of Yukiko and themselves. He excuses himself after then chases after the bald genin, "Wait! Don't be a fool. You'll just get yourself killed."
