While on there way to the training grounds there seemed to be a awkward silence between Tsukareta and Mokuzai, Mokuzai was deep in thought about his experience in the chunin exams and the ones he had the honor of getting to know and fighting against. The people who stood most were the Kiri-Nin named Aura and Chigetsu, they were both from Kirigakure and both seemed to well verse in many things as Mokuzai came to know through fighting Chigetsu and having a small adventure with Aura and he couldn't help wondering what they were up too.
Suddenly Tsukareta stopped causing Mokuzai to stop and he begun to speak "Something wrong pal, were not at our stop yet.
" Tsukareta answered back "There's something wrong all right, your not acting like yourself since you came back. Something on your mind?
" Mokuzai would pause before doing a nervous laugh "Im that obvious huh? Yeah in fact there is alot on my mind, at the Chunin exams i meant a pair of Kirigakure ninja and they were probably the most unique and well versed pair i seen beside's the one's from are own village"
Tsukareta gave a warm half smile.
"Sounds like you belong over there.
" Mokuzai would then answer with a hint of doubt in his voice "I can't leave the village ill be hailed as a traitor to the leaf village
" Tsukareta looked at Mokuzai with a confused look before answering "Perhaps if you read the new's more you would know Konahagakure has a alliance with Kirigakure, all ninja from either village are free to travel in between.
Mokuzai's eyes lit up but he quickly tried to hide it before saying "R-Really? Thats cool maybe ill visit there sometime.
" Tsukareta laughed at Mokuzai as he said "Only a true idiot would deny himself the opportunity to follow what his heart is telling him, still before you make any decision atleast show me just what you learned while you were away, ill do the same thing. You in?
Mokuzai's mind was in a fog about if he should stay in Konahagakure or go to Kirigakure, however his mind was quickly snapped out of its haze as he heard the challenge Tsukareta offered him as it was a good opportunity to test out just how strong he was compared to before the exams. Mokuzai answered "Your on! Lets hurry up and get there so i can show you just how much i improved
From the left side of the training field Tsukareta and Mokuzai landed on the ground before they started to walk with their backs turned to each other as they walked seven meters away, As Mokuzai walked his seven meters he passed by a big loose stump that had been within three meters from where they landed on the field and he brushed his hand along it passing some of his chakra into it and then turned again to face each other, they would now begin counting in their heads before beginning their match
They both quickly begun running towards each other Mokuzai attempted a straight forward punch but Tsukareta had ducked down before attempting to counter attack while spinning his body to add impact to a backhand punch, Mokuzai then jumped back slightly to avoid it's range before moving back in quickly as he tries to trip Tsukareta but fails once more as Tsukareta also jump backwards putting them at twelve meters away from each other.
"For a guy who complains about training, we always seem to be near equals whenever we fight. You been training while i was gone haven't you?
"When someone has a friend like you Mokuzai, they have to train just to be able to keep up with you.
"True enough,lets stop testing each other out and fight for real this time shall we?
"Best thing you said all day.
Tsukareta quickly weaves hand-seals before releasing three condense air bullets towards Mokuzai in rapid succession, Mokuzai wait's until the air bullets are close enough before switching to his substitution jutsu that was closer to Tsukareta, Mokuzai dashes forward before winding up for a uppercut and lands a direct hit to under Tsukareta chin causing him to let out a painful grunt sound as he lost his balance.
Mokuzai attempted to jump in the air and land on Tsukareta but he quickly recovered and rolled away out of Mokuzai attack and quickly put his hands on the ground keeping low to the ground as he tries to kick Mokuzai stomach as he pushes off the ground and Mokuzai coughs up spit as the kick hits him directly in the gut as he took a few steps back giving Tsukareta enough time to get up back on his feet fully.
Tsukareta quickly rushed Mokuzai as he took out his kunai before going for a reversed upward slash, Mokuzai used his left hand to slap away Tsukareta's towards the opposite way throwing off his kunai slash as he reached into his pouch and grabbed his own kunai.
They both came at each other with their kunai's blow for blow causing the sound of metal piece's clashing together to resound around the immediate area, Tsukareta then went for a spiral slash motion and Mokuzai dodged it by ducking down before doing multiple back flips and then jumped in mid air as he weaved hand signs for Water Release:Water Clone jutsu creating another copy of himself, Mokuzai and the clone weaved hand-signs in unison for Water Release: Water Trumpet jutsu causing two jet streams of water to go flying towards Tsukareta.
Tsukareta quickly weaved another pair of hand signs before he slammed his hand on a ground as he used Earth Release:Earth Shore Return creating a wall in front of him that is four and a half meters tall and two meters wide, Mokuzai jutsu clashed with the wall slowly causing the wall to crumble but his jutsu ended right as the wall was nearly completely destroyed.
Mokuzai whistled before having to ask "Where did you learn that one i wonder?
Tsukareta chuckled before saying "I'll tell you over lunch if your buying
They both shared a laugh before walking side by side after a quick sparring session, on the way there Mokuzai was having fun but as they walked into a barbecue grill to eat pork his thoughts started returning on what he should do.
Total WC:2,211Chakra: 105/150
- Jutsu Used:
Name: Substitution Technique (変わり身の術 ~ Kawarimi no Jutsu)
Range: One prepared item in the user's clear line of sight.
Duration: 1 post preparation. Infinite postponement, Instant activation.
Cooldown: 6 posts after activation.
Description: The Substitution Technique is an age-old skill which enables the user to evade the effects of an attack by switching with an item in the area. (The item---or substantial clone---used for a Substitute must be as large as the user's torso, and must be prepared at least 1 post in advance by infusing it with 5 chakra.) Activating this jutsu for another 5 chakra, the ninja moves at untraceable speed for just a moment, and the item does so as well to take the user's place; the ninja leaves behind a flickering after-image for a second, which, if damaged, releases the chakra which holds it in place in a small smoke cloud, revealing the nature of the technique and the item they have switched with. Higher-rank ninjas' afterimages are able to show some of the signs of natural impact as if it were an actual human, if only for a very short period, before 'poofing'. The user coming out of the technique creates a similar audio and visual cue with a small cloud of translucent smoke and a 'poofing' sound on appearance in the location of the item they Substituted with. This technique causes the user to move at speeds untraceable to human perception, and therefore even the user cannot coordinate attacks during the Kawarimi, or activate any other jutsu. They, however, can maneuver near someone and then attack them after the fast-movement is finished.
Name: Water Release: Water Clone Technique (水遁・水分身の術 ~ Suiton: Mizu Bunshin no Jutsu)
Range: Clones cannot travel more than 30m away from the user.
Duration: Until clones are destroyed or cancelled
Cooldown: 4 posts
Description: The Water Clone Jutsu is similar to the Shadow Clone Jutsu except it creates clones out of water that have one-tenth of the original user's chakra - taken after the initial activation cost of this technique has been deducted. Like other solid clone techniques, the clones can be used to perform tasks the user is unable or unwilling to do for themselves. The range of the clone is limited however, as it can not travel very far from the original body without losing control. Like other clone techniques, if the water clones are injured enough they will revert back to normal water. Water clones are capable of only using suiton jutsu provided they have enough chakra to cast it. Regular jutsu cooldowns apply - if a technique is used by one clone, it cannot immediately be used by another clone. A maximum of six clones may be created at any one time. The clone automatically disperses when it runs out of chakra, or when hit by any attack that can cause the equivalence of a C rank technique in physical damage [major bruising, 1-2 inch cuts, etc.] or a C-rank/2 D-Rank offensive jutsu. The user may willingly disperse a clone - returning any chakra the clone has left to the user - but this can only be done under the condition that the clone is not under direct attack. Clones which have been dispersed by other means - ie. taking damage - do not return any chakra to the user.
Name: Water Release: Water Trumpet (水遁・水喇叭 ~ Suiton: Mizurappa)
Type: Offensive | Defensive
Range: 12 meters
Cooldown: 3 posts
Description: The user must raises their hand to their mouth, giving them the appearance of playing a trumpet, as they spew a jet of water from their mouth with power equivalent to an industrial fire hose. The jet, moving at 10 m/s, can be targeted at an opponent to deal minor bruises, but its primary use is to combat other jutsu. By aiming the jet of water at a Katon technique of C-Rank or lower, any incoming offensive jutsu of D-Rank, or E-Rank projectiles, they may easily nullify the attack by putting out its flames or knocking it off-course; the jet of water will also be nullified in the process, limiting this to defending against one jutsu per use. Raiton jutsu cannot be defended against with this.
