The blades of vengeances have fallen swiftly. The shinobi are no more as 'Absolute Justice' has returned...now, it is the Samurai that rule the Five Major Nations!
But at what cost? Have they become the very thing that they despised the most...? Heroes and villains seem to change roles every day, but one thing is for certain - we yearn for our freedom, for days gone by where we flew the skies unhindered.
I noticed you quoted the wrong jutsu, but i knew what you meant so i just went with it =D
The assaulting apparitions would do no good, as they fizzled away when they clashed against the solid bubble dome. The girl was skilled, there was no doubt about that, and i was beginning to run out of chakra. For now I will result to less costly tactics, and one of which would be maneuvering away from the girls incoming shuriken.
Perhaps it was not in my best interest to attempt to end the fight more quickly. Surely if I had've taken more time to analyze the girls techniques this fight wouldn't have lasted so long. But there is no need to be bitter, this still prove to be a useful experience after all.
I began retreating back in large leaps, moving myself from the both the girls flames, and simultaneously deflecting her shuriken with the kunai in my hand. When the last of her weapons had been deflected to the ground below me I was now a good 9 meters away. I stopped my retreat from the girl, all the while taking notice to her hand seals. I subtly reached into my satchel and firmly gripped my a canister within it. I stood crouched and ready as I awaited whatever technique the girl could throw at me, memorizing her position in my head.
The boy was retreating once more. It was understandable. She was a master at fire techniques and decently skilled in water techniques. However he had no idea what else she was capable of. However this fight wasn't designed for her true power (thanks to her little friend behind her). Instead she would open her mouth and expel three fireballs (from her prepped technique). These fireballs were shaped like dragon heads and were as large as a full grown man's torso.
One of the three fireballs she would keep in front of her while the other two she was able to freely direct towards her opponent. The heads' mouths were open as if they were roaring while she sent them at him. They didn't go in a straight line either. Both of the dragons zig zagged and crossed paths numerous times in order to deter Mifune from knowing exactly which way that they were going to come from.
However what she had planned would be enough to end this, or so she would hope. One of the fireballs would roar as its trajectory went askew and it rammed itself into the ground just a bit in front of the boy. This would eat away at the grass, completely turning it to ash, and giving rise to a large flame which would block the sight of where the other fireball had disappeared to not only thanks to the smoke from the burned grass but from the flames itself.
Not to mention her actions were unknown as well...
Ryuuen Houka no Jutsu (Dragon Flame Release Song Technique) Rank: S Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m), Far (10m+) Type: Offensive Handseals: 6 Chakra Consumption: 2x High Ryuuen Houka no Jutsu is a Ninjutsu technique utilizing the Fire Element. After forming the necessary handseals, chakra kneaded inside the body is converted into fire, and then expelled from the mouth in a series of three large dragon head-shaped fireballs (the size of a fully matured adult’s torso). The user then skillfully manipulates these fires, guiding them to attack their opponent(s). The temperature of the flames is so great that, even with the briefest of contact, they are capable of easily shearing flesh from bone.
One dragon head, two dragon heads, and another left with its master. No doubt about it this was another clever strategy from the katon master I am being forced to confront. I had to reflect deeply, while simultaneously keeping up with the zig-zagging dragons advance. There was no real way to avoid both of them, but that problem soon solved its self as the one to my right exploded into the ground (you didn't mention how far exactly) just 4 meters away from me.
Large flickering flames danced in front of me, and there was no doubt that the other dragon head would soon be advancing as well. With less than 10 meters away from the girl, (whom i could no longer see thanks to the plume of smoke and the large flames,) and myself, I had no time to ponder over a new strategy any more. Withdrawing one smoke grenades from my pack I dipped towards my right and tossed one just in front next to my target. It's detonation would lead to a plume of smoke covering about 10 meters in circumference.
I could make out the two flames from outside the smoke, their bright orange lights giving away their position. I had made it past the other dragon head, and now it was time to advance on my target. I threw one shuriken with a flick in my wrist, causing it to bound around the girl ( or rather the location the flame closest to her was in), and strike from the left instead of the right. I had no idea if the attack would land but I knew that silently, but quickly, moving around the light and the smoke would lead me to her and the shuriken would be sure to catch her attention.
I was now only 13 meters away, and I eagerly waited for the girl to react, as my hands began to weave signs.

Though she was blocked by the fire and smoke, she was confident her plan would work. With his vision blocked of what she would do, the second dragon's head would dip around to his right. Considering the first dragon head collided into the ground in front of him, to his right, it would be the perfect disguise to have the second head barrel through the fire and take him by surprise.
However, unbeknownst to her due to her lack of sight on him, he moved to his right, towards the flame. So even though he would throw the smoke grenade out to cover a much larger area, the second dragon head would be crashing through the fire the first one had made and likely hit him. Of course, to avoid that he would have to turn and allow it to hit his golem instead. But due to the positioning if Mifune got away from the second fireball, it would also collide into the ground creating the same effects roughly 5 meters away from the first wall of flames.
The third and final dragon's head would not be visible within the smoke however. The two flames from the fallen dragon heads could be seen though. So when he threw the shuriken it wouldn't hit a thing. Of course she wasn't sitting idle either. She had stopped, briefly, to use her 'other eyes' per se and sense where the boy had gone. It only took the briefest of seconds to find him before she strung together hand seals executed her attack.
Thanks to her re-positioning during the smoke rising, she was only about 8 meters from him. The dozen of bubbles that she would expel from her gullet would then spread out. Four would come from his left, four from his right, two in front of him, and two from up above. And since he would see any bubbles that would leave the smoke to try and hit behind him, none were sent that way.
He was only given one route of escape, but hopefully that escape wouldn't be taken and he'd be hit.
Nagi you worded your post a little wrong in reference to my dragon heads. You stated that the first one collided to your right, but then you moved to your right towards the flame. So there's no way you would have been able to see the second dragon head coming crashing through the wall of flame. But good luck anyways
Homatsu no Jutsu (Bubbles Technique) Rank : C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m) Type: Offensive Handseals: 5 Chakra Consumption: Mid Homatsu no Jutsu is a Ninjutsu technique utilizing the Water Element. After performing the necessary handseals, the user will blow a dozen bubbles (which are no larger than their palm). These bubbles can move to surround their target. Even the slightest amount of physical contact with an object is required to make these bubbles burst, resulting in a small but powerful explosion (comparable to an explosive note) when they do. Likewise, the user can make them detonate on command with a snap of their fingers.
Note: Water is not necessary beforehand to perform this technique.

What was meant by this was that the dragon heads were zig zagging, so the one that would have been to my right crashed in front of me like it was stated in your post. ("One of the fireballs would roar as its trajectory went askew and it rammed itself into the ground just a bit in front of the boy.") In hindsight, i could have worded it better, but even then you stated that the flames would crash in front of me, and did not say where the head's original position was ( to my left or my right, above me etc.) so i just said it CAME FROM my right, but crashed in front of me ("its trajectory went askew".) So there are no flames to my right, and i'm assuming that ur other dragon head would be coming from my left ( which u can say it wasnt, just keep in mind i'm moving away from flames) get back to me on this if stuff still needs clearing up. =D

You're wording was bad so I exploited it. And I left the precise details out in order to exploit that as well. After all that's how T1 works. And besides, I created a situation after the use of 2/3 of my dragon heads anyways so you should have just OOCed your last post in a spoiler and responded to the other scenario than waste time with that post. Again, that's why I posted two scenarios. I don't care if you dodge that fireball---get on with it. I want this match over.
