Itachi stood in the courtyard in front of the gate of Kohona. It was dark outside, around midnight, with the streetlights barely lighting the area. He wore his Akatsuki cloak without his hat, showing his headband with the slash through it.
He had watched the battle between Irori and Katie. Itachi now knew who Hyoshi's master was, and why he wanted to fight people. Though he chose not to show himself in the battle or after it, he knew if someone really wished to find him, they would here.
::Irori was reaching the Gates of Konoha, on his way out into the country towards the house. However, it was time to leave the small shack for a while. He'd be setting back out for the dojo. As he strolled carelessly, confident he had slipped under the radar from any Konoha Police who may have come to investigate the battle, he felt that chakra again. He noticed a man in a black cloak, sprinkled with red clouds. Upon closer observation, he also noticed a scratched out headband. Missing Nin? Of course he'd be wearing black... it must've been stealthy. Less attention-grabbing than he looked right now, having lost his robe in that battle and now shirtless. He continued walking till he finally reached the man, then tried to stop nonchalantly::

"Perhaps that is what you believe you want.........If you knew more you may change this belief. There is a difference between fighting your family or children and fighting the Akatsuki." Itachi said reading the tattoo's on Irori's arm.
"You may view this as you wish, but know if you eventually cross the wrong path that we have interest in, there will be no talking."
Itachi then unbuttoned the top of his cloak, loosening the collar.
"If you wish to continue down this path then you will fight me now, otherwise you may leave"

"Already looking to the feet? You do realize this tactic only worked when it was several on one Uchiha. Though I'm sure they won't tell that part these days...."
Itachi then jumped back several feet dispersing into crows that flew towards Irori. As soon as these crows appeared another Itachi was already behind them. "Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique!" The fireballs then engulfed the crows, which turned into several kunai, all going towards Irori.
::Irori glanced up at the fireball, then the flaming kunai. He quickly analyzed::
If what I learned about the Uchiha is correct, they're strongpoint would be Genjutsu, then probably Ninjutsu. Either way, he'll probably like long-range combat best. I could deflect this with the Fists, but that would be pointless and a waste of chakra if we're not going to fight close up... I'll just...
::Irori pulled his pipe from his mouth and parried the kunai away using it. He would've counterattacked, but he was concerned. He didn't know if he'd already fallen under an illusion. He'd wait till he was sure. Were the crows part of an illusion? Or was this just a jutsu he was capable of?::
::Irori's eyes widened at the speed Should've expected him to be fast... as he thought, he took the blow to the stomach, bending a bit at the force, feeling his insides shake a little bit, but quickly swung his left (and front) arm up to grab Itachi's wrist to try and hold him as long as he could. He made a one-handed hand seal. This lit both of his hands on orange-red flames, up to his elbows::
This will give me my explosive punches... but I don't want to waste too much chakra in case it's just a front that he wants to fight with Taijutsu. I'll only use Fists of Pain, not Death...
::Irori swung his right (back) fist downwards to the top of Itachi's head with as much speed and force as he could muster, hoping to hit before he could get away::
::Irori was blown back by the force of the explosion, but fortunately due to his bloodline, he was invulnerable to all things fire and heat, so explosions really had no effect on his other than concussive force. He flew about 7 meters backwards, then skidded on his feet::
He tricked me... should've expected as much from an Uchiha, but now that I got this activated... I may as well become the aggressor. I'll go on the offensive. Let's see how you deal with this!
::Irori took back into his stance. Left arm forward, bent downwards; right arm behind him, bent up. He ran forward, keeping his eyes on Itachi's hands and feet::
I swear... if this isn't you either...
((OOC: Irori doesn't quite have the running speed to get all the way back to Itachi within one past. He'll be there the next post lol))
::Irori watched as his tattoos fell from his arm and morphed into the figures of the three ninja. He watched and smiled::
Now now, that's what I wanted to see... Genjutsu... But this is quite the obvious Genjutsu. There's NO way my parents could be here. Father's dead, and Mother's back in Kiri... Now I just need to relax
::Irori formed the Tiger Hand Seal and took a deep breath from his pipe. He slowly released it, allowing him to drop his chakra level low::
Normally, I'm not the best at this chakra control stuff, but the smoke makes it a whole lot easier to calm down...
