Kyuu wrote:"He went off into the trees. He had a scroll of some sort..." She looked down at the ground. She caught the deep azure colored chains on her arms in the corner of her eye.
((OOC: Souon has asked to be taken care of, so this will cover it. Say your goodbyes.))
Zerus had been making good time when he was brought up short by an exploding tag hanging from a Kunai sunk into a tree in his path. "Hnn... You are slightly more of an annoyance than the others were." Was his cold remark as he located the figure chasing him.
Checking the Scroll was still secured in his belt, he turned on the pursuer, his image blurring and shifting as he created two clones to either side of him. "I suppose I'll have to arrange something more permanent.
Several minutes later, Souon was on her knees on the forest floor, Chains of deep sienna burning their way painfully across her form from a pentagram seal on her now bare stomach. Her arms hung limply at her sides, and twitched slightly every few moments, as though she were trying to raise them but could not.
"I would suggest you stop trying to move. The more you struggle and tire yourself out, the faster the seal will spread. Even now, you are beginning to have trouble breathing, right?" He continued, his cold impassive tone relentless. "A cruel fate, but ultimately, unavoidable. You might last long enough to make it back, but unless you dispell the seal soon, your body will give out long before any help comes. Sayonara, Konoha-nin-san."
With that, he turned and continued his escape, leaving the Blind ninja there struggling to breathe and feeling each breath become harder and harder as her lungs began to fatigue. Soon, her legs finally gave out the last of their strength and she collapsed to the forest floor, Her eyes open, the sound of her breaths slowly growing weaker, until they were almost inaudible.
Back with Joshin and Hinote, there was the unmistakable burst of chakra that indicated a Major chakra technique, before silence came to rest on the forest again.
Hinote's chakra still refusing to be used, like all of her tenketsu had been closed.
Joshin had a flash of memory, -="If my sword was channeling Chakra right now, your head would be from your shoulders..."=-, and then the 'Clone' tossing a Scroll into the air, which vanished in a puff of smoke, followed shortly after by the 'Clone' itself.
