The mission had ended with Kuro as they captured the Shimagakure Ninja Tou and ended his Edo Tensei jutsu over four Raikage. The new and sixth Raikage and his right hand, Kuro had defeated them. Becoming the new AB combo but something has come up. One of his students and him had a training session two days later. This isn't a meeting that Darui would miss.
Darui arrives thirty minutes early with bandages over his face. Maria was Kuro's wife but also the woman he chose to past down the Black Lightning Technique too. Although her jutsu takes the form of White lightning, which instead of the blue outline is completely white and just as powerful as the black/
Passing this down to her is essential part of the Kumogakure History.

Marianisa had been quite relieved that Kuro had come home safe albeit a little beaten up but that was to be expected working with the Raikage and all. Fate never seemed to tire of challenging her though it seemed. She'd been quite surprised when Darui approached her of all people with a request she felt so undeserving to be honest but she wouldn't refuse such a request to become a student of his to learn his Black Lightning Release as she'd just begun to dabble in the raiton release after the war ended. She was eager to learn it and her first attempt had been quite surprising when she produced white raiton instead of black but no worries it wouldn't affect the lessons any because of a difference in color a minor detail change was all. Nonetheless she was honored and took to their lessons with great focus and determination. It wasn't long after Kuro's return that she received word she was to meet with the Raikage for another session again.
She'd awoken early that morning to tend to Mizumi and see Kuro off before she got to tackling her chores for the morning. Then Mizumi was off to be babysat by her twin aunts as she left to meet Kuro. She was dressed in her training clothes a purple tank top and shorts with fingerless gloves on and finally her ninja shoes. She could remember the first time she'd visited this place on a date with Kuro after being recruited into INTEL sharing a passionate evening together on the beach now she was headed here to meet with Darui the sixth Raikage. Seeing the man already here she had to wonder if she had been late this time. "Apologies if I am late Darui-sama you know how kids can be sometimes. It wont happen again." She'd say now standing before him giving a slight bow before standing tall again.
Maria had approached, being about the right time but Darui had not the ability nor want to tell if she was late or early. Although apologies came from her being late. A sigh came from Darui, how dull for her to be apologizing. "Maria, it doesn't bother me if you are late or not. Stop worrying yourself. Besides I'm sure your kids are troublesome enough." Darui said waving his hands in front of his face as he sighed some. Being worried about these things would only bring discomfort to her.
"Now today, we began to learn the how create your white lightning into weapons for yourself to use. Such as with this, although this takes a lot of control. It's not gonna be a today kind of thing." Darui held out his arm, black lightning erupted and formed a kind of blade forming along his forearm. This was after years of perfecting it on his own. At least she had someone to share tips.

"Alright then and you could say that." She chuckled softly at the last comment rubbing the back of her head a little now. Mizumi was certainly a handful more so after learning to walk shortly before her first birthday she was two now. She was exploring everywhere and sticking her nose into everything she could get her hands on always the inquisitive one very much like she was she really was the spitting of Maria aside from the darker skin color she'd inherited from her father Kuro obviously. She did tend to over worry a little sometimes lately and blamed that on being a mother always constantly worrying about Mizumi and what kind of trouble she was getting into with her babysitter whenever she had to leave her with her. Much trouble as she could be sometimes she loved her daughter nonetheless and welcomed the thought of another child hopefully a son like Kuro longed for.
"Understood and I like a good challenge to push me." She replied after his explanation and watched his demonstration black raiton surrounding his arm to form a blade of sorts now. Simply impressive and with enough training soon enough it'd be something she could do. "Impressive Darui-sama. I am your pupil so just tell me what to do and I will do it without fail." She said cracking her knuckles now rubbing her arms a little as she looked to him now. She'd commit what she was taught to memory to use for whenever she trained alone or with Kuro. She'd smirk Kuro would be in for a treat when she could finally use it well enough it'd be a good counter against his raiton armor and blood techniques once powerful enough.
A good challenge for Maria? Oh this would be, it wouldn't be something he'd tell her for a simple reason of she needed to learn how deadly the white lightning she wields could be. Most of the time, lightning doesn't effect the user. Even other opponents with lightning based chakra have a resistance to the chakra but this kind.. No it'll hurt even the user if messed with wrong. As Maria asked and got ready Darui just sighed. It would be a long process but this was a step to learning any other control over it.
"Well first we will start off away from you. Make the lightning into a weapon of some sort. Light so." Darui made handseals and created a black lightning spear in his hand, radiating with chakra. "Something simple like that. Control over it in a form besides the Panther. Best way is to just visualize it. Be careful." This was the only warning, as Maria would try it , white lightning lashed outward and hit the ground between them striking it hard.

Marianisa understood this was anything but easy to learn and master. Using shadows clones or summoning earth usually never poised harm to the user but this was different. When she wasn't focused enough she often burned or shocked herself which was far from pleasant. She'd been struck by the raiton armor Kuro used before but this was more painful when handled wrong. Still practice made perfect and having Darui who mastered it himself was quite helpful when he trained and mentored her in the ways to use it properly it would take time to master but she'd get it eventually with great patience and eagerness she'd train constantly until she'd mastered it enough to satisfy herself. "Right a weapon of some sort got it." She looked to Darui watching him flash handsigns now forming a spear made of black lightning in his hand now she'd smirk quite impressive his skills were he certainly deserved his title.
"I'll try my best Darui-sama." She replied looking away from him now. She would try to visualize a sword a typical standard katana like most samurai would use. Then she flashed handsigns summoning white raiton chakra to her right hand gripping it. A katana would start to form only to lose it's mass as it shot out and struck the ground between the two with enough power to blast a small crater into the ground. "Damn thought I had it that time." She muttered to herself before looking to Darui nodding in agreement. "That it does truly a force to be reckoned with." All the more reason to master her control over it so she did not kill herself or anyone else with it unless a mission called for her to silence her opponent.
As the white lightning lashed out, he could see the concentration on Maria's face. One reason he enjoyed her as student. She was figuring out everything for that jutsu already. Bringing out every chance and thought she could use for it. How to stabilize the chakra was the hardest part of learning the entire process but it would come with time. "You put a little too much power into you. In a way you don't have to put a lot of chakra into the jutsu itself. It's more of the power is created itself within the blade you are creating."
Darui felt in a way he was a good sensei. It was the way he figured it out. Mastering this jutsu was another advancement towards complete mastery over his special lightning. "I wouldn't suggest adding it to someone else for a while though. It was risky when I did it for Kuro."

She was very determined to learn this technique and to master it. She always took her training no matter what it was quite seriously. Always thinking of the possibilities and new heights she could take hew release to to make it even greater than before. "That makes sense when you put it like that. So your saying less chakra equals more power?" A weird concept to others maybe but she understood. Some techniques usually required more chakra to make them more powerful like Raiton Armor did so it was new to hear that something like what they were training now to use was the opposite requiring less raiton chakra to produce something with great power than any other raiton technique unusual maybe but she understood and would note that for her next attempt and future training at home. Though Darui wasn't as strict on her as her samurai sensei had been he was still a good teacher thoroughly explaining to her how his release and techniques. She was proud to be his student and was honored to bear the kanji tattoo he'd given her that mirrored his own. "I wasn't planning to but I note your concerns. I figured I'd wait a bit before even considering it." Though she did raise a curious brow at the mention of Kuro he hadn't mentioned anything about that. Nonetheless she was relieved Darui was skilled enough Kuro had come home safe and alive clearly not too effected but what the Sixth Raikage had done to him. "I'm ready to attempt again if you want me to Darui-sama." She'd say looking to him again hands on her hips now. Even if she failed again so long as she came closer to the final desired result then she'd feel accomplished and more hopeful.
"I wouldn't say it equals more power but more stability. If you can control the power, you can add more. Making your weapon ever stronger." Darui would explain as his weapon grew some in size. Black lightning shooting and sparking from it. A more advanced form of possessing the power that the specialized lightning possesses. Now she seemed ready to continue onward with the jutsu. Darui placed his weapon into the ground and just nodded. How could he stop that?
"Continue." Was all that he had to say as the white lightning began to form again.

"Oh right that makes more sense now." Lesser chakra meant greater control and stability. It was at that point that more chakra could be added to increase the power and size of the weapon created increasing it's potency. She then crossed her arms against her chest watching as Darui decided to show her how it worked and quickly his weapon increased in size and powerful truly amazing seeing it in action like that. She had so much to learn it seemed which meant a lot of practice. She felt she understood enough now nodding her head as he commanded her to continue now she was ready to give it a shot. Perhaps she would start with something smaller and work from there. Then she began to concentrate white raiton roaring into life around her right arm now. Then she closed her eyes trying to pick a knife much smaller than the katana before. Then her eyes snapped open and she began to concentrate further a small knife made of white lightning beginning to form now. "I did it." She said to herself smiling now as she examined it. Then looking forward past Darui she saw a training dummy and cocking her arm back threw the knife at it which when struck by was completely blasted apart as the white lightning knife exploded upon contact. "How was that Darui-sama?" She would ask looking to him now. Not on his level maybe but in due time with enough practice she'd be able to make bigger stuff like a sword whatever really to suit her needs of the battle she might face.
A proud smile came to Darui's face when the dummy exploded. No one was better suit to learn these jutsu and set of techniques but her in the Raikage's eyes. "You do extremely well Maria. I know the training and beginning is sort of dull but we must continue to pursue further. For now though, we have a task to complete. Follow me." Now they were on the move through the valley. Something had come to be knowledge to Darui and he had to share it with. As he reached the bottom of the floors, he looked over at the woman he was passing down information too.
"Your husband knows this, along with C and the rest of Bee's group but in the works right now.. We have the Sins and Honhenheim working for us to make it look like the Lightning Village is becoming weak. Also to catch the attention of Jewnikami. However.. I don't know if we can keep it from the two."
A Kumogakure secret, using a secret organization to infiltrate another and prepare for war. Using rogues to their advantage though.. How would Konoha view them now?

Marianisa had always been a quick learner once she new the basics. The only training before this that had really stumped her was her samurai training. She'd thought a weapon was just a tool but she'd soon learn it was an extension of herself. Through much trial and error she'd finally gotten it and mastered the style her sensei had been so proud proclaiming her his best student he'd ever taught. Someday she wanted that honor herself to have a student she could be proud of and pass everything onto. "I've had a great teacher Darui-sama and that may be true but I wont give up because of that. Alright I shall follow then." She wasn't sure what the task might be this was new to her since they usually just trained. They were off with maria following close behind him now as they headed into the valley now. Soon enough they reached the place Darui decided on and she looked to him as he spoke of something big Kuro had already been informed of. A plan to infiltrate Jewnikami's ranks to use them for something.
"Do you mean to use them to wage war against the Leaf if they still refuse to give up the Uchiha?" Such a notion would provide great trouble for Shiva's organization INTEL. She'd be forced to side with either the leaf and sand or the other great villages and being married to Roronora a leaf ninja and head of his clan that'd present her with the toughest choice of her life. She wouldn't assume that was what he meant just curiosity if Kumo, Kiri, and Iwa would really go that far just to get to Sasuke Uchiha and kill him. Even if they did the fighting wouldn't stop there the Leaf would demand retribution and things would really get ugly then.
A nod came from Darui as Maria asked if they planned to wage war against Leaf. "We will burn Leaf to the ground if they dare to not give up the Uchiha. Working with the Sins though. It's a very dangerous thing. For so long we have refused to admit to it. When the Keishie brothers find out.. Hell will have to be paid." This was dangerous, nothing about it was easy but it was decisions to make for their country and for their forefathers who lost their lives to the Uchiha.
"Two Raikages were killed by Sasuke. If you want to stand with us, you shall Maria. I have passed on our legends to you as a sign of trust. Now it is time to see if they were put to good use." In a way he was baiting her to help, using her white lightning would be a strong counter to the rest of the government.
