::Irori smiled as he was released from pain. He analyzed quickly::
I have a brief chance. I need to end this quickly... Aokaton... I'll use that. It's the most powerful thing I can use besides Lava, and Lava is dangerous here... Now, which jutsu... Karyu Endan... yes... It'll require more chakra, but it will be strong enough and is a continuos stream, so I can redirect it if I miss...
::Irori performed a few hand seals while he was free and breathed in deeply::
"Aokaton: Karyuu Endan!" (Blue Fire Element: Dragon Fire Flame Missile)
::Irori formed a ring with his forefinger and thumb in front of his mouth, and he began to emit a steady stream of intense blue flames from it towards Katie::
I just hope it doesn't completely overwhelm and kill you... if it hits...

Katie took the sword out of her leg and closed her eyes.
*It hadn't been him. He would've screamed in that pain. Where are you then?!* she listened hard again. She heard something from where she had last thought Irori was.
She opened her eyes and looked at that spot. Only to see blue flames coming toward her. she had to move, but in the pain with her leg it was hard.She managed to slid a few feet over and duck down to the ground. One sword in her mouth still and the other in her hand.
*I don't know if I can fight anymore. Put him in pain, yes. but nothing else. I don't know what I'm going to do.* she thought wincing. The flames hit her left arm before she had moved. And she was in pain now.
*If I put him in pain, he'll be sure to give in. This is almost too much for me to take. But it should really be too much for him to take.* she didn't look up and try just yet though. She didn't want to look up to see him, and risk getting hit by anything else.
*And if he kills me, I won't get to sign his arm. meaning this was a waste of time. And if I do live and he does want me to sign, what if I refuse? He could threaten to kill me. But I would just refuse again. He could...hurt Kibaku or Miki. Then, I would have to sign? Is there anyway out of this?*
::Irori had a slightly hard time seeing directly in front of him, however he was still able to see Katie move. He halted the jutsu to send out a warning::
"I have enough chakra to do that jutsu again Miss Akahamre. You seem to be quite injured, and I think it will take you a little while to get up. So, here is my figuring. I still have my chakra molded for the Aokaton: Karyu Endan. All I do is have to breathe out. With you on the ground, you make an easy target. So, consider this, if you look back at me, I expel some more of those flames to you before you can get up. I feel pain and you get dead... So, here is a good chance to surrender, unless there's something wrong with my analysis?"
::Irori spoke confidently as he put his fingers into a ring once more and placed them in front of his mouth in preparation::
::Irori watched as she moved around on the ground. She had seemed to say nothing. Was she considering a new strategy? He would have to commend her for her intelligence if she could actually think of anything at this disadvantage... but so far, there was just silence. The building behind her that had gotten the bit of Blue Fire that she dodged was now ablaze with Blue Fire. The Police would be coming shortly. He had to get this over with::

She sighed when he spoke. She closed her eyes and when she opened them again they were back to her normal silver.
*I just can't go on anymore. I'd die if I tried anything. I lost.Its over.* she thought.
She turned her head back to Irori.
"I-I-I... I can't fight anymore. I just can't." she said softly. It was low but loud enough for im to hear.
She looked down at her leg. it was bleeding a lot and she didn't think she could lose anymore blood. Katie sighed at the mess. She had to put pressure on it to stop the bleeding. She put her hand on top and press down. She winced and screamed, throwing the sword grip back in her mouth.
*Why did I just HAVE to do that to my leg?!* she thought, mentally beating herself up for that.
Katie sat up, with her hand still against her leg. She slowly stood up and when she tried to put her leg down she winced yet again and fell on the ground.
*Damn. I can't let Miki heal me. I won't let her, not after the fact that she was kidnapped. I'll just have to live with the scare and let it heal on its own. And I'll just have to walk out of here, make sure noone follows me, and when I'm out of sight...I guess I'll just fall over in pain. Great. Now what...? Oh yeah, I have to sign now don't I?*
She did want to say something about it to Irori. But, without the sword in her mouth she would scream. She thought for a moment.
She then gestured writing by pretending to sign on the ground. She looked up at Irori waiting for his answer, while trying to hide the pain in her eyes in case Miki or Kibaku was looking at her.
::Irori smiled. He released his fingers and let out a breath, allowing the chakra to be released from the jutsu. He walked over to his pipe, then picked it up, placing it back in his teeth. He continued over to Katie. He smiled as he approached, he pulled a long needle out of his back pocket, tipped with black ink::
"You know, your friends could heal those wounds there?"
::He said as he stuck the needle out towards her::

Katie looked at him and took the needle. As she signed her name on his arm, she dropped the sword grip from her mouth.
She bit her lip before speaking.
"N-no. I'm sick o-of being helped. A-and I-I'm fine for now." she managed to say through the pain.She finished her name and handed Irori the needle. Instead of putting the sword back in her mouth she just decided that screaming wouldn't help her leg so there was no point in it.
Katie tried to stand up and failed again when she tried to stand on her leg. she fell back down.
"I am so stupid!" she said sighing and closing her eyes. She got up again but didn't put down her right leg. She kind of just stood there. Not sure how to get home on one leg and not sure if Irori wanted anything else. She looked up and saw the moon. She smiled as it calmed her.
She knew,smiling at the moon, that she looked stupid. But she didn't care.
*I lost. But I lost to someone older than me. And I did fight pretty good. And, I guess thats all that matters. ...But I'm still stupid for cutting my leg.*
::Irori smiled as she finished. The tattooing didn't really hurt after what he just endured. He noticed her struggling and spoke to her::
"I'd like to give you some advice..."
::He said calmly and with a slightly nurturing air to his voice::
"That power of yours is strong. But you have to realize, that it does cause no damage. Just pain. Perhaps, if you dealt more damage to your opponent before using it... then pile pain on to that previously given damage, you could make it nearly impossible to fight through like I did. If you are numb to pain before using that jutsu, you could probably fight quite effectively in close-quarters Taijutsu. Don't be afraid of that."
::He concluded as he outstretched his hand to her::
"Thank you for a good fight Miss Akahamre, the least I can do is help you get up."

Katie stopped smiling and quickly looked at Irori's hand.
"Uh...? Oh!" she said. She had kind of spaced out when he talked but she remembered it now.
"Uh, yeah thanks for the advice." she said as she grabbed his hand and got up on her one leg.
She started to limp away, waving to Miki and Kibaku. She glared at Hyoshi, who was still on the roof. And she looked back at Irori.
"Uh, bye. And I'd get out of here before people come to see what happened. And I won't tell anyone you and Hyoshi are missing nin. Neither will Kibaku or Miki. I'll make sure of that. and don't come to heal me Miki. I don't want to be helped for what I did." she said limping away.
*I wonder how long my leg will take to heal on its own...? I hope not too long. I have to get back to training. I need to get stronger. So next time I can beat people like Irori. He put up a good fight though.But I did too.* she smirked and laughed a bit.

Miki smiled and bowed your head. "Thank you for not allowing Hyoshi to hurt me and also for the food. It was delicious!" She paused for a second; thinking. "And also, try keeping better care of your residence so that your next hostage doesn't need to clean the house!" With a grin, she waved a the man
She made a beeline toward Katie, eyes wide and frantic. "And what are you talking about! You're leg! It-It-It looks so painful! Please let me heal you!" Her eyes were begging her senpai. A lot of blood was gushing from the gash in her leg and it was torturous to watch.
Post by Katie Akahamre on Jul 23, 2010 20:59:47 GMT -5
Miki looked crazy. She really wanted to heal Katie.
"...Miki...calm down. It isn't that bad." she winced because she had pressed down on her leg too hard.
"Okay, yeah.It is that bad. But Miki, I can't have you and Kibaku always saving me and healing me. I'm sick of being the one in need of help. I'll bandage it up and take care of it when I get home. I'm fine.Really." she said smiling.
Katie started to feel light headed.
*Okay, I really need to get this bandaged up quick.* she thought.
She started limping at a slow pace down the road. Not really caring if Miki followed or not. She looked at Miki who looked worried and was looking at her leg.She sighed.
"I won't let you heal me. But if you really want to, you can come with me to my house and help me wrap it up. But you need to get back to the hospital.But it might be better if you go in the morning."
::Irori smiled and bowed his head to her also. He didn't know if they'd meet again, but something told him he'd be spending alot more time in Konoha. He silently turned to leave, now content with his night. He had a good meal, and a good fight. However, he sensed that something had been watching him, something with a large chakra. But, he chose to ignore it for now. Hopefully it was another powerful person. He began to quietly and calmly stroll back out of the village and towards the hide-out::
