Their opponent didn't waste much time on talking before flames erupted from his mouth. The flames formed the shape of a dragon, and even though the attack was focused towards Ryu, the genin still quickly moved to get out of the path. Hotaru in her wildest dreams couldn't imagine using a jutsu as powerful as that one, as it seemed that was the kind of jutsu that you were to use if you were to melt everything to the ground. So much for this shrine.

Hotaru didn't leave herself any time to be fearful that he unleashed this jutsu without seals or any other preparatory or channeling step. That would seep in only after she managed to escape. The whole building they were in squealed with the force of the jutsu, shattering windows and breaking beams. Absolutely preparing to come crashing down.The genin squeezed out of one of the shattered windows before the whole wall collapsed. Hotaru quickly dashed for the adjacent building which was perpendicular to the line of fire from the enemy's jutsu.

She made it, barely. The smell of burnt hair that followed her was certainly hers, singed. She also felt the residual heat on her back and the back of her limbs that signified a burn. She still had good range of motion and wasn't in distress when moving, so probably not serious. The genin made it to the top in time to see Ryu's clones (and possibly Ryu as well) chasing after the red-eyed man for an attack. Hotaru was a couple of buildings away on the other side of the decimated shrine. The genin quickly flew through a familiar set of hand seals that she used earlier in the day to create a clone of her own and the two made their way around, to get closer. Her clone moving faster than the genin herself.

From his perch, it seemed like those red eyes of his didn't miss a thing. As the four Ryu made their approach up the side of the building, the red-eyed demon smiled and let out a burst of flame from his mouth. It wasn't an attack, the flames rolled out in a burst and then formed up as columns. Then the flames shook off, and they were copies of him, sword included.

As the four Ryu appeared, the demons moved around each other in a prepared maneuver, their four blades meeting the four assailants with an insidious grin on their faces. Ryu's swordplay seemed superior though, quickly two of the demons fell, and they burst into roaring flames of intense heat. Leaving two demons, one seemed to be having trouble holding his own on the rooftop, the other was cool as could be, deflecting blow after blow.

Meanwhile, Hotaru's journey toward the fight was interrupted. The clone that was leading the pair was cut down no sooner than she started. Out of the shadows between the structures appeared the man, as if he wasn't having a fight elsewhere at the moment.

He pointed a harsh finger at Hotaru, his eyes narrowed, "You, you're going to sit this one out." His fingernail was painted black, sticking out against his exposed skin. It somewhat matched his stark black hair. As he gave the command, there was the loud sound of crows all around Hotaru, cawing and taking flight, but they were nowhere to be seen.

Hotaru didn't want to be disappointed that her clone was nearly immediately dispelled, but she was. Their foe had made it clear when they first met--in calling her a squire, that she was completely out of her depth here. The genin didn't have too much time to be disappointed, because the man himself was here standing blocking her path. It was impossible for her to tell if this was the original, or if there was such a thing as an original with this guy and whatever techniques he was using.

Gripping a kunai in preparation for an attack, the girl listened and watched as he pointed at her, once again instructing her to leave this fight to Ryu. At the very least, the genin wanted to support him, but even facing off with this clone. The genin couldn't win against him, not by herself. Then again, he didn't seem interested in fighting her at all. He just stood there, pointing with his blackened fingernails.

The sudden sound of crows taking flight unsettled Hotaru initially. There weren't any crows flying anywhere in the area--certainly not in the numbers that she was hearing. Fearing that this was some sort of jutsu surging up, the genin launched the kunai in her hand and moved to the top of an adjacent building to get some distance. The terrible pain in her left arm made her worry that the jutsu hit that, but nothing changed in the area she was previously standing in.

"You missed." A bored, yet familiar voice scolded. Hotaru glanced to the sound of the voice coming from where her hand used to be.

"Ryuichi?" The girl whispered. It was her brother's head, connected to her arm where her hand used to be. Where the head became a neck merged into the rest of her arm but the longer the genin looked, the more her arm started turning into his body. "What?" Hotaru had to clamp down tightly on her urge to panic.

"I told you that you couldn't do anything out here. Now look where you are. You're just some know-nothing brat who gets in the way."

"Shut up." The genin quickly tried to use her free hand to cover her brother's mouth. But it did nothing to silence his increasingly disappointing words and commentary.

Splitting her attention between the clone who cast this jutsu on her and whatever was going on with her body and her brother's head. That same feeling travelling on her already transformed arm was now tingling in her other arm. Without her hands, Hotaru had no chance in using jutsu. She had to think about what to do, with her brother's head now screaming at her.

As Hotaru started to struggle, the man with the black hair adjusted his stance while watching her with his bold red eyes. It was like he was enjoying her struggle, he grinned before letting out a soft chuckle.

"You should listen to him," He said, "you are nothing but a burden out here. If anything, you'll get your friend over there killed."

He let out a chuckle, and pulled a group of shuriken from his back pocket, "Or yourself. Hard to tell, little squire."

Without moving from his position, or even dodging around, he launched the handful of shuriken at Hotaru. They seemed to spread in flight, curving to approach from a few angles.

Meanwhile in the background, the clones of the demon man were fighting against each other on a rooftop. There were explosions of heat and fire, but they seemed rather evenly matched. Ryu didn't seem to immediately be in trouble, but then again, the man didn't seem phased by his attacks.
