Tsuki could at least use decent ninjutsu for a genin of her supposed skill level. She utilized a kekkei genkai, Lava Release if Akame remembered correctly, to halt the other group of bandits. That's a bit different from a Phoenix Sage Fire, the ANBU thought, amused. The bandit with the pitchfork Akame was facing made a thrust at her which Akame parried to the side before slipping around the weapon on the opposite side of the katana wielding man. That put his friend in his way, making this a one on one fight for a time. And this guy... was not good enough to one on one Akame. Not when she was already inside his guard.
A swift upwards slice took both of the pitchfork bandit's hands before a pivot and twist of Akame's wrists severed his head with a follow up strike. The man hadn't even had time to make a cry of pain before death took him. His body folded onto the ground now that it was without its head, lifeless and twitching as it refused to accept that it was dead just yet. The katana wielding bandit just stood there, stunned at the display. They hadn't been expecting such ferocity from these two, though they were beginning to realize what had happened to them. Akame wasted no time, pushing over the body of the first bandit as it fell with a low, quick leap. She feinted with a spinning slash to his head, the man reacting just barely in time to block that blow. Her blade trajectory changed however, and the excellent quality katana she wielded sheered through the meat and bone of his left thigh like it was made of paper. This man did scream, and he screamed more when Akame took the right hand which bore the katana on her follow up slash as he fell. Disarmed and dislegged, he would lay there and bleed as Akame swiveled to catch a view of Tsuki's fight.
The genin had killed one man and halted the other two, each with numerous holes in them from what appeared to be a fairly decent ninjutsu on Tsuki's part. Akame hurried over to them, as both had fallen but one was getting up to try and run away. The other had been struck on the head and was missing most of the left side of his nose as well as his left eye. He just laid there, moaning in agony. The man who was trying to flee had a limp and an injured arm from the looks of it, and both men had dropped their weapons. Akame calmly approached the fleeing man as terror filled his eyes.
"No, please, don't! I didn't want to do this, I sw- AAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGHHH!" Akame's sword cut his leg off at the knee before he could finish his pleas. The bandit dropped to the ground and Akame kicked him over, waving for Tsuki to come. Once the genin had gotten to her, Akame would continue with the next bit of... education. The man had been weakly trying to crawl away, but a stare and threatening gesture with the katana had kept him where he was.
The ANBU tore the man's belt off his waist and made a tourniquet for the bleeding stump of his leg to stop the blood flow. "This is one of the more difficult parts, Tsuki," Akame said quietly as she brandished her ebony katana in front of the man once she was done with the first aid. "Field interrogation." She said no more, allowing the genin to fill in the blanks. "Hold his left arm down, Tsuki."
The man's eyes widened at those words, though Akame wouldn't let him speak. "You're going to tell me what I want to know, and then I'll have Tsuki here cauterize your wounds as well as the wounds of your comrades. They'll both die from blood loss soon if you don't hurry, though." Akame, still standing over the man, placed a foot on his right arm which was the wounded one that had been lying almost uselessly to the side. He grimaced in pain and another gasp of pain escaped his lips. "There have been numerous bandit attacks like yours along this road the past few months. Are you all working in tandem?"
The man said nothing at first before looking at Akame, fear in his eyes. "Please, if I tell you and you let me live he'll-" he was cut off by Akame as her sword point buried itself into the ground. His pinky finger just so happened to be in the way of that path however, and his words were cut off by another howl of pain.
"Are you working in tandem?"
"I can't tell you th-"
The ring finger this time.
"Are you working in tandem?"
He eyed her, hatred and fear now both present in his eyes as his voice, hoarse from screaming, croaked the response she needed to hear.
"Yes, yes, please stop! Please, let me go!"
Akame placed her sword point on his middle finger. "You're not lying, are you?"
He viciously shook his head, but Akame pushed down and severed this finger as well. He screamed again with power Akame hadn't been expecting, honestly. She looked to Tsuki. "Confirmation is important." She turned back to him. "Are you sure you're working in tandem?" He nodded his head just as vigorously as he had shaken it earlier. "How many are at the next raid points?"
The man answered immediately this time, without hesitation. "There's six at the next one, I don't know about the rest, I swear! Please, leave me alone!"
Akame severed his index finger. "Surely you must know them all?"
"NO! I don't, please!"
And finally, his thumb. This scream was weak, almost silent as his overworked throat rebelled. "Really? You're sure?" The man nodded weakly, his body now feeling the effects of blood loss. Akame studied him and, after a few moments to analyze if he was lying or not, stepped off his arm. "Cauterize his wounds, then get his friend's wounds. The man I cut down is dead already. Then we need to get rid of the bodies." Akame would wait for Tsuki to complete her first aid before following up on the disposal of the bodies.
