PostSubject: Closer and Closer   Thu May 05, 2011 12:17 am

It was a tedious path that Yakate had to travel to get to Swamp Village. The smell of the dead bodies and rotting trees was getting to him, and it was a bother to keep his chakra suppressed while carrying about a ton of sand with him. He had been undisturbed up till now, apart from that alligator.

He had been walking for about thirty minutes now, and if he guessed correctly, he'd be in Swamp by the hour.

Yakate was walking beside a dead crocodile carcass when, out of nowhere, a swarm of some sort of insect came buzzing into his face. Yakate was caught unawares; his train of thought had caused him to ignore the gradually loudening buzzing of the insects as they approached him. Loudly swearing, he fell on his back, causing the sphere of sand to fall (thankfully) on dry land.

The bugs buzzed themselves away from him, but as soon as he got up, they flew over towards him again. Thinking instinctively, he struck on the length of his right arm with the fingers of his left hand like a match, intending to send out a streak of fire at the swarm. What happened was far beyond anything he could have imagined. At the moment.

The flame-streak soared away from his arm, but as soon as it had gone an inch from his arm, it expanded and grew, and grew and grew more as it kept moving, until it turned into a monstrous, roaring flame. This flame entirely consumed the colony of insects (he still hadn't managed to name them), and passed through them effortlessly, hitting a moist tree when it finally died out. The sudden silence was scary. Incinerated to a crisp - or rather, crisps - the bugs disappeared.

It took a few minutes for Yakate to comprehend what happened. And when he did, the sheer power he held within Marsh Country was rather overwhelming for him. Swamps had dead vegetation in it, and dead vegetation meant methane. Methane was a grand fuel for flames; Yakate wouldn't need to provide a constant stream of fire chakra to let a fire keep burning. A little spark would be enough to blow up a tree.

... Fanciful.

Yakate's fingers started dancing as he reformed the sphere of sand once more, and, with a renewed energy and confidence, he began jogging towards the village. His assault seemed far less futile with the environment on his side.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OOC: Why didn't I blow myself up?

A swamp -does- have methane all over it, but mostly above watery areas. And I implied that I was in a forest, or rather, never mentioned that I was near a body of water. The gas I used to enhance the fire was the one released by the dead carcass near me, i.e. biomass. Also, the moisture in the air of a swamp suppresses the expansion of the flame.

Do take it to your advantage, though, since Yakate doesn't know any of this - I do. :D!

Anyone in the area would feel the potent chakra signature drawing near, and very fast too. Raijin wasted no time, he was determined to defeat the invading Sand shinobi. The Sand's Kage was the closest to the group so that was the preferred target of the three unfamiliar ones. Speeding towards Yakate's location, Raijin had seen flames in the distance, very large flames. He jumped onto the tree branches and continued making his way to Yakate. High elevation would surely give him an advantage if the target was on ground.

With one final leap Raijin landed on a thick branch; Yakate was in view jogging away from the area. "Now where exactly do you think you're going Sand ninja? You're chakra is incredible so you must be a very strong and experienced shinobi..." He crouched down and took a seat on the branch, allowing his legs to hang freely, the cloak still draped over his body. "I want you to know that you're in for a rude welcoming." In a few minutes, or less, the others would arrive.

Ryo, following close behind Raijin, refusing to let him get to far ahead. Ryo was determined to prove himself in this fight. If not to the group as a whole then definitely to Raijin. A skilled S-Ranked rouge could become a very powerful teacher or at least an acquaintance. But first Ryo had to gain his respect. He followed close behind, seeing him land on a branch and sit. Ryo looked up and moved up, suppressing his chakra and staying behind the trees out of sight, moving a few branches above Raijin, close enough to hear him and still remain hidden. They were very very close to the chakra he sensed.

Then, peering through the leaves, careful not to reveal himself, he saw him. The source of the charka, with sand around him. A sand user...he had never seen one of them in action before. He hoped his water style would be a good counter for it . And as they had approached he had seen a big explosion, so he would have a great chance to prove himself valuable to Raijin in this fight. He was going to wait for Raijin to make a move and act accordingly.

This man, their enemy was way to powerful for Ryo to think about directly engaging him, but he could back up Raijin. That he knew. And if things got dirty, he would act ferociously and without hesitation to attack this man. He knew that even when faced with a more powerful enemy, fear and hesitation were your greatest weakness. He had lost them for the most part long ago. In battle they did not exist to him. Only the fight, for to live to see the next day, one must never lose.

His eyes were trained on the man with floating sand, hands close ready to cast his jutsu's, while suppressing his chakra to the point where it was undetectable. He was focused on the man and watched his charka carefully, waiting for any fluctuation to indicate a potential jutsu. Ryo would know when he moved, and so would Raijin. No mistakes could be afforded when dealing with an enemy of this caliber and when the stakes were this high for Ryo.

Shinji was following Raijin within a safe distance keeping him eyed all the time just in case the man decides to do something that he would regret but the Hattori's guard was not focused just on him but to the people around him too. When he was dashing to where Yahiko was he had felt the same chakra signature close to him but he had direct orders to contact the Senju first. Now he was sure all of the people he had called were enough to deal with the man they were following despite his strong presence in the area.

The chuunin landed on the same thich branch which was amazingly long and thick but that didn't surprise him at all - he was born here. He and Yahiko had an amazing advantage against the others as both knew the Swamp as good as their names.
Shinji observed how the man who had a sand sphere with him annihilated some sort of an insect swarm. This insects though reacted negatively to everyone who is a foreigner to this Marsh or so they say that the myth why the Marsh Country is so uninviting was created by the hostile flora and fauna which somehow did not bother harassing natives of the Marsh Country or so it was told by the elders.

Shinji smirked as he realized that he was blessed with the water element to counter this man's fire and probably sand assuming from the sand sphere he had. So since they were going to be together fighting this guy the Hattori had to make sure he at least knew a little about their fighting.
"Tell me...how do you fight ?" He asked with his eyes kept on the man from Sand.

Calm and collected, Yakate waited for the entire company to appear before replying to the first person's inquiry. However, the third shinobi struck a nerve; how do you fight? The guts this one packed was remarkable, and soon his irritation turned to good humor; with a rather lazy tone, he said;

'How do I fight? Like a boss.'

In a split-second, he analyzed the entire area in which the group were to have their battle.

A large, dead carcass was lying on the olive-green grass that surrounded most of the area. Many meters ahead from where Yakate was standing, there was greenery; again, the leaves were rather dark because of the environment in which they were in. Craning his neck, he could see that the swampy meadow spread for the greater part all around him, except for a portion; at a radius of nearly fifty meters behind him, subtending an angle of about 40 degrees eastward bore from the south, there was a large, mossy swamp.

All that he analyzed in a fraction of a second. Of course, he might've missed out on minute details. But minute details weren't involved in the battle tactic he had at the moment.

With nimble fingers, he manipulated the entire body of sand at once, dividing it into four equal quarters at first. The first portion fell down to his feet, circling his feet with sand; simultaneously, two other pools of sand containing similar amounts of sand flew over diagonally from in front of him, falling on the grass, ten meters away from him. This occurred much faster in reality, and it was hard to comprehend it, partly because it happened in a few seconds.

Mostly, because there was a fourth portion.

And this fourth portion flew forwards, towards the tree on which two of the shinobi were standing. The mass of sand broke itself down into (roughly) eighty sand shuriken; or as Yakate preferred to call them, his signature 'Mirage Shuriken'. However, only a few of them were directly moving towards the first shinobi - the rest were flying haphazardly in a rough circle, with the first opponent being the center.

As soon as he threw the shuriken, Yakate wasted no time to see whether he hit or not; he performed swift hand-seals, and from both pools of sand in front of him rose to men made of pure sand. Their texture was entirely that of sand, but their persona was grossly similar to Yakate's own - tall and lean. The creation of the Sand Clones taxed the sand from the two pools, but he still had enough to perform all his required techniques. Or so he believed.

He was on the offensive, and thusly, he couldn't offer letting his opponent's ever think he was backing down. The grip of his chakra on the Mirage Shuriken remained strong, as he waited to see how his foes would react.

So tranquil was the Sand shinobi, despite the fact that he was challenged by three deadly shinobi and more were to come; Raijin almost took this as an insult. A knowledgeable shinobi would know very well that these areas hold Methane, a highly flammable compound that can easily combust when mixed with Oxygen and other elements. From what he had recently seen while heading here, the use of fire in the vicinity wouldn't set off an explosion, but rather form into a more powerful heat source! Maybe if they were all fighting in the actual Swamp, the results would be different. The Uchiha watched the Sand shinobi closely, the slightest move would put Raijin on guard.

To his surprise, Yakate immediately began his attack sequence. Using his Sand manipulation, Yakate created four quaters of Sand piles. One of the quaters continuously rotated around his feet, the other two set on the grass before him, and the last used for his attack. About eighty shuriken formed from the sand and shot out at the Uchiha and Shinji. Most of them were directed at Raijin and the rest traveled aimlessly in a circle. Quickly setting his soles on the bark of the branch and pushing himself off, he launched himself upwards, though he leaned back. As he ascended he performed hand seals. Raijin expelled several superheated fireballs. They all passed through the wave of shuriken, slowly beginning to melt them. Each of the fireballs successfully moved past the projectiles, that were now in liquid state, and continued their paths towards Yakate.

Since Raijin was at high elevation, the usual elements were abundant compared to the smaller percentage of Methane. In mid-air, Raijin released two more of the fireballs, this time directing them towards the sky. He landed on another branch just six meters from his previous location. As for the fireballs (3) sent at Yakate, they accumulated into larger and more devastating fireballs thanks to the Methane released from biomass at ground level. "Water shall be the key to victory!"

Katon • Housenka no Jutsu is a Ninjutsu technique utilizing the Fire Element. The ninja does the necessary hand seals and then emits a series of small fire balls. The ninja can also hurl a projectile which is covered in these same flames. To the opponent the attack appears to be only the balls of flame, they do not see the hidden threat within the flames. Meaning that even if the flames are put out, the projectiles still converge on the target. The flames can be used to cover different projectiles like shuriken or kunai.

Ryo felt the younger Swamp shinobi behind him and noticed he had landed next to Raijin below him. Now they were three. As long as Ryo kept the focus off him, he knew they would be okay. But if he preformed as he could, at the top of his game, as he knew he'd have to with an opponent such as this and wanting to win Raijins favor he would have to come out strong.

The Swamp nin spoke to the sand shinobi and it seemed to agitate him and immediately after he responded and launched into an attack. Scattering sand after a quick survey on par with an inventory he himself would take and then scattered sand around and sending a ton of sand shuriken their way. Well focused at Raijin and around the Swamp nin and he mostly safe from them. Raijin leapt into action to counter and attack. Sending blasts of fire ripping through the sand and continuing towards the powerful sand ninja who was still unknown to Ryo.

Raijin was in the air sending his final attack, and Ryo took his chance leaping behind Raijin, forcing chakra through his feet, and pushing off his branch with enough force to render the branch to splinters. as Raijin began to fall back to the earth, and the fire ball he had launched had grown in size, blocking the view of Ryo from the sand nin. He took the opportunity to attack himself, forming hand signs pulling his head back, upon completing a huge bolt of lighining was fired from his mouth following the fire ball to catch the nin unaware.

As he fired the blast he held it for a moment and followed his target to chase him if he moved, but soon released it, and fell back to the earth landing a 20 yards from raijins right side and to the left of the Sand ninjas side. His extra chakra push from the jump off the branch had pushed him much further then expected but still he was sharp and close enough to react to anything thrown at him.

The sand clones the man made would hopefully be dispelled since the one who made them was hopefully was hurt and his concentration was broken enough to force him to drop the clones. That was all a hope at least and he figured if he could get him away from the sand at his feet he could remove his defenses to, but all these were hopes and at least he should make the man move away from the sand at his feet. Sand was a form of earth so even if it was used to block the fire, it'd be weakened and the earth would be shattered by the lighning. That is if it was used for defense.

Raijin yelled about water being key, but if he was right, and sand was a form of earth nature, lightning would be just as effective. I wonder why he hadn't thought of that...

"Tsch..like a boss." Shinji muttered as he was annoyed by the sand ninja's reply. " I will make you cry like a b*tch"
The sand ninja did not waste any time on any more words and launched his expected offensive. Sand and Fire - that was all he knew about the man they were fighting. That made the inner Shinji smirk as he had the perfect counter elements but still he had to keep a cool head and not reveal his attack patters or any information on himself and use the art of surprise, something which he was master at.

The sand emitted had turned into lots of shurikens that were launched at the three's positions. The man who back at the coast was eager to fight was quicker to evade away to one side along with the other one who had a weird hair. Shinji used jumped off the branch away on the next tree evading the shurikens but he kept dashing through a few trees attempting to outflank his enemy. The Hattori knew well he should not rush too much to outflank because he had to keep the man's attention away as much as possible from him.

His two fighting partners launched a pretty powerful counter attack - massive fireballs and a lightning that seemed to destroy everything in his path. Good. Now Shinji could read what his partners powers were and also what would the sand ninja do against such a strong attack. The chuunin did not waste any more time and quickly adapted to the situation realizing what his move should be so that it would maximize the difficulty of the attacks of the others two but also do not reveal much about Shinji.
"Water is key!" Seemed to yell out the black haired teammate and Shinji frowned as he was doing handseals. Then why did he sent out fireballs for god's sake ?
"Scattering One Thousand Crows Technique" whispered Shinji as a flock of crows popped out of nowhere around Yakate both annoying him and blocking his vision.

The melting point of sand is too high (1500-1700 degrees Centigrade). o_o If you made fireballs hot enough to melt my sand, the temperature would activate the flash point of methane, causing the whole thing to blow up in your face. D:! Of course, it -might- not blow up, but the sand will still be sand. e.e

A predictable evasion, a predictable counter-attack. Yakate had prepared himself precisely for an attack of this nature; straight forward, toward him. Just like his prior attempt at burning the insects, the fireballs grew into a monstrous, huge flame, soaring towards him with a terrifying din.

With a sharp jolt of chakra to his feet, he sank into the sand.

... And reappeared in the center of the eastern (from where he was standing) sand pool. The sand clone on it promptly took a few steps forward, allowing him freedom to rise out of the sand. His eyes glared over the mass of fire that crashed upon where he was standing only moments ago, and his eyebrows raised themselves in shock; apparently, there had been a lightning bolt behind it, too. Sand was a horrid conductor of electricity, though - the next time he was faced with a lightning technique, he could insulate it away.

As for the flames... Yakate was a fire-user himself. Given enough chakra, he'd be able to block any of his foe's techniques; overpower him, even, unless the said foe had chakra levels matching Yakate's own.

And out of nowhere, a flock of crows began pecking on him as if their life depended on it. Where in the world did...

Oh. A jutsu. Of course. Crows don't live in swamps.

His train of thought unmoved, he fell down on the sand, as if he were hampered by the crows' assault, and focussed on the clones standing dully on the two pools of sand. Comically, they entered a drunken run towards the tree form which the fireballs had come, purposefully leaving a trail of sand on the path on which they moved. Yakate could allow them to move in the right direction without his eyes by detecting the unique chakra signatures let off by his opponents.

For now, the clones had no purpose. The trail of sand they left behind, however, did.

He was nonchalant to the seemingly increasing number of crows biting off at him, and, placing his palm upon the sand beneath him, he channeled a smooth flow of fire chakra through it. He hadn't tried to use this technique for a long time either - there was a good chance the chakra would escape from the sand, and cause a huge explosion. Especially since he was using sand clones to extend it.

But he had to take a chance.

The sand trailing the two clones turned crimson along its length, spreading out from where Yakate was to the clones themselves. Crimson Sand: Combustive sand that Yakate could ignite whenever he wished. An excellent way to carry explosions away from him.

He was still being violated by crows; his clones were still running towards the tree, and the trail of sand left behind by the clones was still turning red - what his foe's would do now, he couldn't predict...

Yahiko clenched his fist tightly and created a wood clone. The clone formed from the very skin of his body and rushed to the scene of the battle in a different direction. " why at a time like this is my home being attacked we were so close to our goal and now it was ruined because of these intruders!" he yelled loudly as he approached the battle field seeing his uchiha comrade battling one of the invading ninja "Uchiha step aside for now i will restrain this ruffin and you dispose of him!" His clones appeared directly above the ninja and formed hand seals as well did yahiko. "Jubaku no Jutsu - Tree Restraints Technique" beams of wood from multiple sides came racing at the ninja to restrain him and trap him. it seemed as if there was no place to run or hide.

Just as expected, the enemy had avoided the Fireballs. The Sand below was used to transport himself to one of the piles directly in front of him. Unfortunately, Ryo's attack had failed as well. Raijin stood on the tree branch, observing Yakate's movements. Shinji took action after, summoning forth a flock of crows. There had to be at least two hundred of them circling Yakate and blocking his view; this was truly a murder. Good move!

Then, out of the blue, the Senju made an entrance. Pillars of wood shot out from the trees around, directed at Yakate, who was surrounded and annoyed by the crows. Wait! Where are the clones!?!? He quickly spotted them out. They were running to the previous tree, but why did they leave trails of Sand behind? What was even more fascinating was that the grains of Sand were glowing red. All of this Sand, it needs to be dealt with...

There was little that Raijin can do now, not without the presence of Water. As stated before, Water was going to be a key factor in this battle. Unlike Fire and Lightning it could render Sand usless. But might as well take advantage of the situation. Raijin drew four kunai, throwing two at the other Sand pile and another two at the Sand Yakate had submerged into. If he chose to use the Sand as a mean of transportation he'd be greeted by the projectiles.

His attack missed. Damn. The Swamp nin had made a good move by covering him in crows and hindering his view. The clones however were now on the move towards the tree they were all juts at. So much had juts occurred. It seemed the sand was used as a way to transport himself to evade attacks, as well as attack. While he was once again hindered from view maybe he hadn't seen Ryo unleash his attack. It was of reasonable power and if he could help it wanted to stay off of this Sand ninjas radar for a bit longer.

Not only that but there appeared to be a trail left by the sand clones as they charged haphazardly ahead. This was unique. Obviously a skilled and clever shinobi why would he do something seemingly haphazardly? The sand trail was turning a red, almost crimson color, moving up the sand trail left by the clones, traveling from the hindered ninja to the clones. Interesting. He knew the man had Sand manipulation, clearly, and fire form the previous explosion..could this be a combination or an advancement of his Sand technique? Regardless he could test both theories.

His sight was hindered greatly by the mass of birds, and then a sudden appearance of the other Swamp man form before! He was a type of wood user it seemed, causing wood to emerge and rush the practically blind shinobi. He yelled his plan to Raijin, seeming to exclude the other two. Regardless it did change his plans a bit. Instead of testing his theory he moved against the clones, to halt their advance. Preforming a small set of rapid hand motions, he pulled water into his chest, kneading chakra and converting it to water, he then expelled two water gunshots, each aimed at a different sand clone. Ryo had great aim and nothing to hinder his shots. They should hit home on destroying the back of one clone and soaking the sand in the process, and the other was about to lose a head and upper torso, also becoming clumps of wet sand. Thus Halting their advance, as he returned his attention back to the Sadn ninja to await a further development or opportunity

Description: The user kneads chakra, and converts it into water, and then spits it out in the form of condensed balls. The high-speed water ball attack possesses just as much power to kill as an actual gunshot. While this is a water release technique, it can still be employed someplace where no water is available, which is a great advantage. It's also possible to increase the power of destruction of the balls themselves by building up the chakra inside of them. The number of bullets is determined while kneading chakra. By taking advantage of gravity, the bullets can brutally increase in power.

The sand ninja disappeared and then reappeared at a different place. This would prove that he would be pretty hard to catch and utilizing his knowledge Shinji realized that their opponent was clearly a fighter from long range so maybe the Hattori should risk and attack at melee range where he excelled mostly. The two sand clones which were ignored were heading towards the group of defenders of swamp leaving trails of...crimson sand ? This was something Shinji could not perceive and it may turn out to be quite dangerous but before that one of his teammates had used his water element to dissolve the sand clones rendering them useless.

"Good. We are making progress. Now where the hell is that Yahiko ?" He asked himself and at that moment wood popped out around the crow harassed sand ninja in attempt to immobilize him. Now was the time to strike! Shinji had formulated quickly a plan while hiding in the trees he had created a water clone of himself which jumped down and rushed towards the sand ninja doing hand seals. At the same time the Hattori had masked very well his presence and chakra which was part of the Silent Killing Method. The chuunin had to try this plan, he might succeed and end this.

"Water Release: Syrup Capture Field" The clone muttered and sent out a wave of syrup like water where the man was. Not only would this trap him but it would render his sand useless and thus the sand ninja would most likely be unable to use that technique of moving with the sand unless he turned into sand and was invincible. If he dodged he would be the target of Shinji who had with swift speed outflanked him and was rushing him from behind with his steps barely emitting any sound and that sound was overwhelmed by the sound of spewing water and the popping out trees. The Hattori had his katana unsheath and he calculated where could appear just in case Shinji's attack did not connect.
The chuunin timed his attack with the upcoming water and stabbed at the sand ninja's back.

The sheer discrepancy of everything going on around him kept Yakate's senses at their greatest height. The cawing crows were, for a while, the only thing on his mind, but soon to join them was the sound of creaking branches, and a rush of wind; there was a fourth ninja. He could tell by the completely varied chakra signature he held compared to the rest of the shinobi. Apart from sensing the new foe, he could also sense his sand clones began attacked by something that seemed to send them blowing up. Yakate assumed it was brutal force that destroyed his clones, and didn't sacrifice much thought to them.

But as his mind quickly analyzed what to do, he found a much better use for them.

He couldn't shift himself to another of his sand pools, since he couldn't see either of them. He couldn't blow everything up around him to clear his view, since the slightest spark would blow himself up as well.

He could, however, shield himself.

Within a split-second of thinking, Yakate created a dome of sand around him, covering both him and the crows inside. Simultaneously, he coursed fire chakra through the dome, and created another, smaller dome of sand around him; this dome covered only him, squeezing most of the crows between the two domes. In the span of a few seconds, the second dome turned a bright red crimson, and the inner dome thickened with sand from the pool - and the few crows that were inside the inner dome were crushed by his own bare hands. A few cuts to his fingers were a reasonable price to pay.

A strong pulse of blood flowed through his fist when he clenched it; all of the crimson sand, starting from the dome around him, to the trail of sand behind the path his clones followed, to the sand clones themselves, half-blown up - all of it exploded in one magnificent combustion.

The clenching of his fist wasn't to make the sand explode; no, it was to strengthen the dome of sand around him. The heat that gushed between the sand was enough to cause his sweat to evaporate as soon as it formed, and that was only on the inside; on the outside, he could imagine that was going on. The vegetation that was attempting to grow around him must have been charred and destroyed. The person who attacked the clones, if he was close to them, would be close to dead now. And with the flame magnification he had observed minutes ago, Yakate believed that anyone in a 10 meter radius around him would have dangerous burns on their skin. The heat of his fire would spread for about 25 meters though; enough heat to dry up an entire pool of water in seconds.

And the crows... were toast.

Yakate felt a sharp pain in his head. The large effort needed to cause such an explosion... his younger self might have endured it, but he hadn't tried to for so long.

... Screw that. He was at his prime now. Not a child prodigy - a true prodigy.

Gathering his senses once more, he decided to dart away wherever he could sense the least chakra. To his north and north-west, he could detect people - also, to his west, and weakly from the south.

Forming a kind of large tongue of sand, Yakate pushed himself to the east, away from all of his sand pools - and his enemies. Standing calmly upon a sort of platform of sand, he eyed the battle-field; Round One had just ended, and he had survived through it.

Yahiko watched as all his comrades attacks failed including his own. The sand shinobi had cleaverly created a sand shield that completely covered him along with the crows." This is unbelievable i wont let you live any longer ! i have to think of something fast" Suddenly the sand dome had begun glowing crimson in color as well as the trail of sand. Based on what he had seen before when he was heading to the area this shinobi was capible of using fire techniques ,if the glowing sand was some how a combination of sand and fire, they all would be screwed because of the methane. Yahiko stood his ground shifting his eye's towards the sand dome and back at the trails of sand. He performed a set of hand seals as fast as he could slamming his hands together afterwards. the ground trembled and then the earth had risened. Yahiko was ascending very quickly. In just a second yahiko was just already 12 meters high and still rising, escaping the intense heat exerting from the glowing sand "my comrades head to me right away" As he looked down at the glowing sand dome 40 meters below he witnessed a explosion. Yahiko crouched and sighed in relief as he escaped the fatal blast.

Incredible! This Sand shinobi managed to defend himself against all of these attacks! All of the Sand in the area attracted towards the ninja, enveloping himself and the crows. At this point the ninja wasn't going to be able to see a thing happening outside his shield. "What exactly does he think he's doing? Defending himself like th-" Then it happened, his Sand was beginning to glow crimson in color, something didn't feel right.

Beneath the soles of his sandals did the tree tremble with such magnitude! Raijin looked down at the ground and could see the vibrations. Suddenly, the entire land mass beneath Yahiko had risen very quickly, as if the force of gravity had suddenly changed. It was obviously a Doton (Earth) technique. While this was occuring a heat wave had also hit Raijin's face, and boy was it hot and getting hotter. The Uchiha heard the Senju call him and the rest of the crew. "Damn, this must be a Katon (Fire) technique!" With such graceful speed did Raijin shunshin to Yahiko's side, escaping the intense heat below. Hopefully, his comrades would do the same thing to avoid being roasted.

And boom! The red Sand around Yakate and on the ground had combusted, setting off an explosion of flames with the help of methane. If the blast occured right beside Yakate's shield, was there a chance that it had been weakened? Only one way to find out! Calculating the exact location of Yakate's Sand dome, the Uchiha held out his right hand and charged it with Lightning. From the tip of his fingers shot a blade of highly charged Lightning, like a bolt from the clouds. He rushed off. With such speed, this blade was definately meant to kill with one strike. The target was the body shielded by the Sand shield, that was now beginning to fall, which meant that Yakate was leaving.

He had effectively taken down the sand clones, which may have been the first real accomplishment of the fight besides using the crows to annoy and distract the Shinobi. Now as eh looked back at the scene, the young Swamp ninja was rushing the man form behind and the front, trying to limit his movement and deliver quite a blow to his back. Still hindered the nijnas plan failed as the Sand user pulled his sand around him to form a sand barrier.

So much for that. OF course he was going to be defensive, especially if he was hindered. Ryo should have thought and planned for that. Then the sand dome began to turn a crimson color. No way that was good. At the next moment the ground rumbled and The older Swamp nin Called to them as he rose on a mass of rock that seem to be being pulled to the sky. Ryo began running for it, doing hand signs as he went.

His hand was coated in blue water and he snapped it in the young swamp nins direction. His water whip wrapped around his waist and Ryo promptly planted his foot and rotated, using his momentum and all his strength to swing the ninja off his feet and up towards the rising earth. The momentum and force of the flying young man lifted Ryo off his feet, to the land mass. However where the boy was thrown up to the top, Ryo was brought hard into the side.

As he hit the rock, the water whip fell to water and Ryo began to slide down the rock. He was only have way down, but it was still rising. He recovered himself, channeling chakra to his hands and feet as he began propelling himself up, as it really hit the fan. The crimson sand below ignited and a massive eruption of fire came from where the sand nin had just been. The concussion wave alone was jarring, but the fire and immense heat that followed was enough to burn skin right form the bone.

"HOLY SHIIIIIIII AHHHHHHH!!"


Ryo was shot forward from the blast, causing him to fly over the top of the land mass. He could feel his back was on fire, and panic took him briefly. He landed with a thump on the top of the land mass, and quickly began rolling around to extinguish the flames. He sat up, rubbing his head and opened his eyes in time to see Raijin preform The Chidori Eisou. His eyes grew big and for a moment he forgot about the pain on his back and the lumps and bruises he would have. This technique...he had to learn it. It was incredible.

As the fire seceded Raijin was gone, leaving the others atop the ledge, Ryo rushed to the edge to see what was happening. Wide eyed to see the technique in action!

As Shinji lunged his sword forward a barrier of sand appeared and his sword seemed stuck inside. The Hattori had numerous efforts of pulling it out while noticing the sand turning crimson. Something felt wrong and the chuunin felt danger while his heart pulse was increasing drastically. Shinji had underestimated his opponent and his impatience had made him to lunge forward an enemy he had not much known about. He was an assassin he knew that information and knowledge is great power and here he was tossing away every law he had been taught in the Hunter-nin corpse. The crimson color was covering more ground around and the heat made Shinji sweat.

His mistake would cost his life. He failed to defend his village and now all that was left were prayers that the others fighting would achieve victory. Shinji had underestimated so many facts as for example the methane in the area, he thought that if he was at home he'd have an advantage it seems he was wrong and as he seemed to surrender to the heat and impending death a rope...of water ?... wrapped him and he suddenly felt weightless holding his sword in his hand while the heat slowly diminishing until his thoughts and mental fade away he felt his head crash into something hard - the ground.
After a few seconds Shinji realized he was saved and jumped from his sad state suddenly, his eyes once again full of energy but this time they looked cold.
The chuunin noticed his savior it was the man who had followed the fire user, his saviour was also a water user.

Shinji was reborn in this battle once again his experience of fights coming back to his mind again and he was turning into the ninja he was while he was a hunter. A cold and calculating one.
"You two. Give me your names." He simply said and nodded at his saviour in a way of gratitude. " We need communication for teamwork first of all."

"And lots of water." He nodded to Yahiko who had saved the whole group from the sand ninja.

A frightening peal of thunder ringed in his ears, but even before the noise, he knew what was coming towards him. His sharp senses were nothing less than they had been years ago, but even so, he wasn't fully prepared to counter-attack; only dodge. An adept at speed, Yakate nimbly pounced leftwards, and began darting in the same direction with his arms flying wildly behind him. He doubted that his foe would be able to change direction, not with the speed he had had.

Yes, his arms were dangling, but his fingers; they were following precise movements. Behind Yakate followed a relatively large mass of sand: all of the sand from the spot he had been standing on, and the two pools that were on the battle-field. If his foe was standing still on the spot where he had attacked, he would lose his balance and fall - it would be impossible to maintain balance and run towards him atop a shifting stream of sand.

He had run about thirty meters when one of his hands shifted into a hand-seal. Not caring about what was going on behind him, he caused zombie-like bodies of sand to rise from the stream of sand following him; three of them, that seemed to be moving in unison with the stream. With a short leap, and a powerful backwards force from his heel, he turned around to face the land once more.

A good distance to his north-west, he could see an Earthen Wall standing upright. Naturally, the Wood user could use Earth techniques as well. However, it was indeed a feat to have managed to get all of his foes up on the rock on such short notice; his foes obviously had very fast reflexes, and a quick mind. Furthermore, one of his opponents had managed to launch a counter-attack against him already. Yakate could tell his foes were of powerful caliber. Or at least, the fire-user. He was dangerous.

He decided it was safer to assume the defensive, not otherwise; he would wait for his foes to attack, and then devastate them with resplendent tactics. Preparing to do so, he sent jolts of heat throughout his body, and used two Katon techniques at once: his muscles tensed up, and a dense, sultry mist began to scatter from him, spreading up to about twenty five meters away from him. The mist rose about a meter and a half from ground level, essentially masking his presence from eyesight. The sand clones he had made were still standing stupidly upon the sand carpet that was in front of him.

With a jeering tone about his voice, he spoke out mysteriously from amidst the mist;

'I cannot gainsay that each of you are talented. What might be your names?'

True, it was a stupid question, since he could see none of their faces; the mist blocked his vision as well, and three of his four foes were atop an artificial mountain. But the silence; it was terrible.

Yahiko watched from above as Raijin rushed off the land mass, Using the lightning element to attack the opponent. A wasted effort though seeing the sand nin evade the blade of lightning and flee from the area. Yahiko jumped off the mountain and landed on his feet. He dashed after the enemy, catching him create clones of sand and create a thick mist afterwards. Yahiko couldn't see anything in the mist but he could still hear. And the enemy had given away their position by asking a question.

He bent down resting his knee on the ground and touched the soil. Nature itself was beginning to speak to him. The roots below had given him the location of the enemy, along wit the voice. He performed a handseals and from beneath Yakate and the clones erupted vines and later a large tree. The vines would whip all around with enough force to leave deep cuts. The vines would also try and entangle around the clones and Yakate. "copy my handseals Uchiha.." He whispered. One attack wasn't enough though! He performed other handseals and fired a jet stream of water from his mouth. Sending it towards the direction from where the tree emerged.

Another failed attempt! This was beginning to annoy the Uchiha. The glowing blade that was now partially embedded in the ground had faded away. Raijin had fallen down to the ground, landing on his feet. Now was that time to go serious! From the mountain top above jumped Yahiko, rushing in after Yakate. Unfortunately, the Sunagakure ninja had created a field of mist, concealing himself. Yahiko could only be seen outside of the mist touching the ground. Raijin sprinted towards the Senju and stipped beside him.

Further ahead, a large shadow emerged. After growing in size, Raijin was able to realize that Yahiko had used a Mokuton technique to create the tree. Raijin was then told to copy the following hand seals. He activated his Sharingan and copied every single seal, releasing his own jet of water in the same direction. To make the attack more lethal, he released a bolt of Lightning into the water.

Watching from above Ryo could only stare wide eyed at the events occurring before him. This technique the Uchiha had used...he was memorized. He had to learn it. Something like that looked like it packed a punch if it had connected. He had to learn it! Not only that but both Raijin and the Senju were attacking after the Sand user had eluded their previous attacks. This time he had made a mist to conceal himself although this didn't seem like a water attack to Ryo. This man was very talented to say the least.

These attacks though were powerful. A tree erupted from an area that a voice could have come from. Amongst the movement, Ryo was paying to much attention to actual hear what it said but the two wasted no time attacking the source with the eruption of a tree and two jets of water. Kneeling over the edge Ryo's face grew hard as he calculated what he should do. Standing on the edge of the risen earth ledge, it was easy to ignore his scraps a slight burns from the crash up here with his adrenaline going and the events before him becoming so heated.

Staring at the events his fists clenched in anticipation. He wouldn't act now, merely watch those of a higher level attack and look for a solid opening to prove himself in the battle but for now, attacking head long would only put him in the way and from here he could wait for the sand user to move or dodge again. He seemed stronger when he could stop and gain himself, maybe keeping him moving would give them the edge or force him to make a mistake.

And in the back of his mind he knew all he wanted to do was learn that technique Raijin had used. He had to have that for his own arsenal! SO he stood and waited, beginning to draw in static electricity and his own lightning nature preparing fro whatever he would need in the near future, running a few scenarios through his head.
