Chapter Sixty-One~ The Briefing
~ Sorry for the missing Chapter yesterday, I was too busy. So here's the new one! Also, since I have a life, I won't be posting new chapters as much, so this will become more usual. It sucks, but we have to deal with it. Anyways, here we go!
Sage quickly glanced at the source of the voice as Izumi slowly turned around. Standing there was Tenso Ukitaro, in the flesh. Tenso was wearing his clothes earlier in his battle with Vatas and Menrui, yet it seemed that his wounds and scratches had been healed, for he was standing unscathed. Sage was somewhat surprised, yet he did not seem to lose his cool demeanor. "I heard the tales, old lady, and I'm surprised to see them to be true." Tenso then commented, as he remained in his position. Izumi then halted, at halfway point into facing Tenso.
"How did you discover a Door to the Dome of Ultimcia?" she then asked slowly, her voice betraying no emotion. Tenso offered a broad smirk. "I had....help," he answered, as his red murderous eyes glanced at every corner of the room. Izumi then said nothing, as she balled up her fists slowly. Faster than the normal eye could even follow, Izumi spun around, unveiling five daggers in her previously hidden hand. The daggers were long, double-edged and curved. A long blue line pattern were on each other daggers. Efficiently, Izumi threw all of them, releasing her hand, as the five dagger flew in an instant. They soared across the fifty yards of the distance between Izumi and Tenso; as the daggers flew, they seemed to stretch, getting longer by the millisecond. In a time span of one and half seconds, they had already reached Tenso, who set up a defensive stance in response. He skittered back, followed with an ungraceful backflip that narrowly avoided the first dagger by three and a half feet.
As the dagger plunged itself into the ground with its sharp point, forming cracks in the ground, Tenso quickly took a glance at it and realized something was wrong. It turned bigger!
he realized as he dived to the right, dodging another one by three inches. Tenso quickly got to his toes, glancing at the two daggers plunged into the ground: they were now swords. Somehow, the daggers had grown in size during their flight. They had at least increased in length by five feet, and width by three feet, making the daggers a regular long sword.
Tenso then performed a cartwheel as the third dagger arrived, evading it too. He smirked, thinking of the fact that he could not be beaten by something this weak, as he heard a static sound behind him. Tenso turned, looking at the emotionless face of Izumi Nu, who kicked him upwards. As her knee bone pressed against Tenso's stomach, he was sent flying, zooming into a wall. However, he quickly yet barely caught himself, managing to use his chakra pools to stand on the walls. Tenso grinned, as he saw another dagger heading toward him. You underestimate me, you old hag,
he thought as he simply sidestepped on the wall, avoiding the dagger, which had plunged itself into the wall, now a longsword.
However, things weren't that simple. As Tenso grinned, he heard a whistling sound to the right of him. Tenso glanced at the object, and realized that it was another dagger of Izumi's. He attempted to dodge it, but it was too late: he had noticed of the dagger too soon. As it plunged into his stomach squarely, Izumi waited below. Tenso then fell to the ground, into the arms of the waiting Izumi. He reached just seven feet above the ground, as Izumi swung a fist at his head upward.
Tenso was sent flying. He instantly flew, crashing into the ceiling, as parts of the ceiling concrete fell, to which Izumi easily evaded. No one made a sound, as the pull and strength of the ceiling gave up, and the body plummeted straight to the ground with a dull thud.
Sage was sitting at the computer table, on one of the dozens chairs. In his hand was his trademark cup of coffee, as he took a sip of it, as if nothing had happened.
As the Denkiteki
did that, Izumi gazed at the body. "I thought so," she finally said. Sage nodded, taking another sip as he murmured, "I'm guessing that it was another person disguised as this one?" Izumi nodded, replying, "This confirms the fact that the Order of the Illuminus Alliance is involved, since this is clearly the work of their Head Scientist, Mayuri of the Black Puppet Corps."
"Intelligent observing," Yamamoto said. Izumi turned around, as Sage looked up from his cup of hot coffee, to see Yamamoto, accompanied with Vatas and Nui.
