If only Ryuko could make fine hand moves as fast as she could move the rest of her body while boosted this would be over already. Of course it help that the wire she kept on her wasn’t quite as readily accessible as her batons. She kept it inside her supply pouch rather then in a holster simply because she didn’t need to use it as much.
Not that it took her long to fish it out since she kept her pouch neat and organized, but even so time was time and if she’d had it in hand to start with things would be over with already. Luckily Tori was proving herself quite adept and had managed to cut of the criminals escape route.
The sight brought a grin to Ryuko’s face. As far as she knew the hooded figure had no way out now. He’d have to fly to be able to slip away but with her ability to double jump in mid air even that was no guarantee. But as it turned out he had another option which he quickly revealed with a stomp of his feet.
Seriously? Thought Ryuko as the man shattered a hidden trap door and vanished down the newily uncovered hole in the ground. What where the odds that he had just happened to stumble across something like that out of pure dumb luck? Not good in her book.
What the heck was a hidden tunnel doing in a place like that in the first place where it had no business being. This type of thing was way above their pay grade and Ryuko was about to suggest that they go report this and let an expert handle the rest when Tori followed the man down the chute before she could stop her.“Das’t.”
Exclaimed Ryuko as she jumped into the crevice following in hot pursuit. If the thief was this organized she couldn’t dare leave her new found friend on her own. If Tori got in over her head she’d need the more experienced priestess to bail her out. As the saying went in for a penny, in for a pound.
The tunnel was somewhat cramped but luckily for Ryuko her petite frame was smaller then the thief so if he could make his way thought she’d have no issue doing so. She was only just a step behind Tori which ironically forced her to hold back on the accelerator a bit less she slam into the poor girl and cause both of them to trip over.
It seemed the thief had rigged the tunnel somehow to prevent from being followed, as it was starting to crumble around them as they went. He likely hadn’t counted on them being literally right behind him though and the girls just narrowly managed to avoid getting caught in the falling debris and escape.
Glancing back behind her as she ran Ryuko frowned. That had been a very close one, if she had hesitated at the start before entering she would have been caught up in the collapse and buried alive. Without any earth jutsu under her belt it was unlikely she’d be able to dig herself out in that situation even with her chakra enhanced strength.
Turning back towards the thief who was booking it across an open field towards a nearby village Ryuko decided she’d had more then enough of this nonsense. Theft was one thing but he had endangered lives and needed to be stopped now before he caused further chaos.
Forming a half tiger seal her body seemed to blur as it dissolved into a burst of rose petals only for her to reappear a few steps ahead of the would be bandit a split second later. She’d used a body flicker to cross the field in the blink of an eye, moving so quickly that to Tori it must have looked almost like she’d teleported.
This time she had her wires ready. Their was a whizzing sound as she threw five shuriken into the air. At this range it wouldn’t matter if the man tried to dodge or not. But luckily for him none of them where aimed directly at him, but rather just enough off target so that they would pass by him at which point she would manipulate the wires to bring the shuriken around which would effect tangle the figure in the wires binding him up.“You are under arrest, surrender now. Any further resistance will be met with extreme force.”
advised Ryuko as she motioned towards Tori to come forward and pull the cloak off the mans’ face so they got finally get a look at him. She’d do it herself but she was preparing to reel the man in should her her constriction be successful.
Once he was within fist range she would unleash a follow up strike, giving him a open handed blow to his chest using her shuddering soul technique to temporarily paralyze him just to make sure that he was well and truly captured and wouldn’t slip away again.
