As Irori was using his jutsu, Itachi had a clone ready and threw his real self towards Irori in air while the clone would take the jutsu. Itachi then grabbed both of Irori's arms as they were still in the ground, holding them tight.
"I can already tell....You must be defeated close up, otherwise this will drag on."
::Irori smirked arrogantly at his words blowing some smoke out of his mouth and nose::
"I was just thinking the same thing!"
::Irori used the fact that, thanks to Itachi, his hands were now firmly rooted in the ground to perform his next attack. He swung his feet and entire body backwards quickly in an arc till he stood erect, upside down on his hands. He then concentrated a tiny bit of chakra into his right foot and, like a pinwheel, swung downwards towards Itachi using the speed and power of the falling momentum to enhance his attack. The concentrated chakra would take form in a small flare eminating from his foot as it came crashing down, adding a small bit of burn if it were to hit::

Itachi watched as the attack came at him with eyes wide open. He quickly let go of Irori's arms, throwing his own across eachother to block the attack that almost hit him in the chest. Itachi slid backwards a bit, the sides of his arms were now red and the sleeves of his cloak torn and burned.
"Landed an attack.......Can't say I expected that one."
Itachi then stood up straight and smirked slightly.
"Now that I somewhat understand your fighting style more....."
Itachi then ran at Irori quickly, with his right hand bent back ready to punch, just before reaching Irori he produced a clone that ran towards Irori as well, but in front of Itachi.
The clone went in first punching towards Irori's face.
::Irori took his stance in the brief moment while Itachi was recovering. Irori kept his eyes on the torso, feet and hands, dashing from one limb to the other. He was preparing for the incoming punch. When he noticed the quick clone, he didn't have too much time to alter his strategy. However, he did slightly::
"Time to drop the bombs!"
::The fire on his fists raged. He swung his right arm down from behind him and curled inwards to bring a punch towards the clone's stomach. This attack would create a moderately sized burst of fire if it were to impact::

As soon as Irori's hand made contact with the clone it exploded around Irori.
Itachi knew the clone wouldn't kill or harm him seriously like it would with most, but it would be the perfect cover for Itachi's direct attack. Itachi followed after the explosion within fractions of a second, immediately punching towards Irori's stomach, away from where the clone aimed.
::Irori was unable to see through the smoke and flames of the attack, he stumbled a little bit from the concussive force of the explosion::
I shoulda known... They are quite inconvenient...
::Just as he finished his thought, he stumbled directly into a blow to the stomach. He doubled a little bit and a few drops of blood spit from his mouth::
You repeated a trick on me, now I'll repeat one on you
::Irori once more took advantage of Itachi's arm being right where he knew where it was. This time however, he would not grab his arm, but attempted something more damaging. Heoping there was still enough smoke and flames around to be good cover, he performed his attack as quickly as he could. He punched both of his burning fists inwards on either side of Itachi's arm, hoping to land::

Itachi quickly looked up after landing the blow, seeing the two fists of Irori's coming towards his arm. Quickly he formed a hand seal using the body flicker technique to appear right in front of Irori's arms.
Then a clone of Itachi appeared behind Irori, grabbing him from behind and pinning both arms and his head. The real Itachi then threw two kunai in each of Irori's legs, hoping to disable them for a bit.
All these clones! I can't hurt them either, or they'll juust explode... I don't have much chakra left, but I may have a last ditch-effort... I'll use Lava. But not yet...
::Irori's Fists of Pain de-activated. He reached back and grabbed the Itachi by the head that was holding him. He threw him over his back, towards Itachi, just as he took the two kunai to the shins, causing his knees to buckle. He proceeded to weave a few hand seals, then launched an attack behind the clone, also towards Itachi::
"Aokaton: Karyu Endan! (Blue Fire Element: Dragon Fire Flame Missile)"
::He had hoped that the clone, even if it didn't hit and explode on Itachi like he really hoped, that it would at least provide cover for the steady stream of Blue Fire jetting directly after it. It costed a lot of chakra, but he couldn't be too careful. He made sure to save just enough for his last plan as he dropped to his knees from the kunai::

As the clone toppled over Irori, Itachi jumped midair a few feet back. The clone disbursed into crows which were explosive tags. The fire hit the crows causing a large explosion around Irori and Itachi, blowing back Itachi a little even.
::Irori rolled across the ground about 3 yeards away from the force of the blast. He smiled up at the sky as he pulled the kunai out of his legs::
Hmmm, had I had more chakra, maybe... but after that battle, there's no way I can beat some one with evasive skills this great. At least not without having a plan prior... Never in my life have I lost a battle fairly... but this one... The Akatsuki should be worthy adversaries. But, I still have one last chance. Had I not underestimated him, had I brought some lava to the surface from the beginning of this fight, Things would be much different... yes... but I was definitely foolish. But, at least I can give this a try...
::He stumbled up to his feet, holding his stomach. Then, he proceeded to weave a few hand seals and swung his hands in a circle around him::
"Yoton: Leaking Hell!"
::A small puddle of Lava gushed from the ground beneath his feet. He then thrusted both arms in a sweeping motion from his feet, up into the air::
"Yoton: Pillars of Summer! "
::This would cause a geyser of molten lava to erupt from the ground beneath Itachi::
Not much more left... Ngh... Just have to hope this somehow catches him off guard and wins this... or at least distracts him long enough to get out of here...
Of course, he can use Suiton too... Well, my effort was a complete waste. Next time, I won't underestimate you... Next time, this fight will not be so out-of-the-blue. It's about time I left before I drain every last drop of my chakra, or end up fighting the entire Konoha Police...
::Irori saw the bullet coming and swept both of his hands to the the left and upwards diagonally, turning his body with them::
"Yoton: Orange Opal!"
::A hollow ball of Lava enveloped Irori, then hardened upon being blasted with the Water::
Must be some REALLY cold water...
::Irori proceeded to make a hand seal before poofing from the inside of the hot rock orb back to the front of his shack::
Next time... I'll use Lava from the get-go. And next time, maybe... just maybe, I'll be able to use THAT form...
