She leaps out of her tree-perch to the ground beside him, flashes a peace sign at the ANBU, scoops him up and bolts.

Permalink

He eeps and very carefully does not start giggling.

Permalink

The ANBU radios her superiors and then gives chase.

She's fast.

Permalink

Hm, that is fast. Might be better to take her out. And a little show of force while she's at it...

She deposits the kid in a tree and then darts back, throws a punch to demonstrate intent, and then starts dodging the ANBU's presumed counterattacks.

Permalink

The ANBU draws a tanto and counterattacks.

She's good, but not on Ranko's level. 

Permalink

And she will be led in a spiral if that's how her opponent dodges, yes?

Permalink

And at the end of the spiral she punches upwards, triggering the spiral of her cold battle aura and her opponent's weird but still relevantly hot chi--

Permalink

And a twister springs into existence, not as strong as it would've been against someone really strong like Happosai or Saffron, but still totally a whirlwind.

Permalink

There, that should do it. Nice and visible, a clear warning, as well as carrying off her opponent and leaving her dizzy and dazed when she lands.

She darts back over to where she left the kid.

Permalink

He's still where she left him.

"That was cool! You're wind natured?"

Permalink

"What's wind natured?"

Permalink

"Like, elemental chakra natures. For using ninja techniques. I'm water and earth and wood."

Permalink

"Never heard of it."

Permalink

"Huh. We should get going, though, there's probably more coming."

Permalink

"You're probably right." She picks him up again and starts running. ...They should probably have a better idea of where to run to. She finds a tall tree, vaults to the top of it and looks around.

Permalink

They're on top of a large plateau between rising mountains behind them and a small ridge ahead. Beyond the ridge are the hazy lights of a small city or large town, some distance below. 

Permalink

Looks good! Townwards they go.

Permalink

He focuses, trying to sense if anyone's following them. He's solidly average in chakra-sensing, and they're cloaking themselves, but -

They're not being careful not to disturb the trees. He can almost feel it, every time their chakra interacts with the trees'. 

"There's a bunch coming. Dunno how many, or how close," he says quietly.

Permalink

"Ugh, I was hoping the tornado would've warned them off."

Permalink

"They'll probably be more careful. Attack in groups."

Permalink

"It's times like this I wish I had inherited my brother's fear of cats. If I put you in a tree again and beat them up are they going to try to grab you before I'm dealt with?"

Permalink

"Maybe. One might get me while the others fight. I can fight back, though. Why d'you want to be scared of cats?"

Permalink

"I'll explain later, suffice to say there's a powerful technique he can use that I can't that's related to the cat thing. What'll they do if we get to the town before they catch up?"

Permalink

"Dunno. Haven't been to Konoha ever. But ANBU are a normal sight I think."
