Kurome and Daichi go out to get rid of some pests.
"Burning Bandits, Slicing Throats"
Land of Fire
Recent sightings of bandits attacking passengers on the path to Konoha have caused concern. Less travel has been coming towards Konoha because of this, so it became a quick concern of the village. It wouldn't have taken long for the details of the little camp, where the small group of bandits were hiding, to be found out. Only Kurome was orignally supposed to clear out the small camp of around half a dozen to a dozen bandits, but upon hearing of Daichi's return they wanted to make sure his trip to Kumogakure did not leave him rusty. So Kurome was asked to take him with her, and make a report of his progress during the mission.
Kurome didn't mind Daichi coming along! The woman appeared at the gate, expecting Daichi to meet with her here per some instructions via a messenger hawk either she or the administration would have sent. The Clan Head has been busy with Clan Matters, but missions like these were a good break in between. "Hmm…" She says as she leans against a post.
Daichi was happy to be getting back on missions, and surely had no probelm heading out to the gate. It didn't take him long at all to make it to the gates, and he greeted Kurome. "Hello Kurome. What we doing today? Oh and how have you been the past few weeks?" He smiles softly before moving closer towards Kurome and leaning against a nearby post as well.
"Nothing too exciting. Just beating up some run of the mill bandits. The problem is that there are a lot… So I'm going to leave half of them to you. And you need to promise me that you won't die this time around." Kurome smirks just a bit. "But as I said, these ones should be easy to face off against. Especially if you've been training. So, are you ready?" Once she has a confirmation, she would move out, going at a steady pace that would challenge Daichi's speed.
COMBAT: Kurome focuses 5886 stamina to turn it into 7777 usable chakra!
Daichi nods in excitement. "Yay. I think this could be a fun mission. Alright I am ready to head out. Lets do this." He follows along rather quickly, but even now he isn't as quick as Kurome. Maybe if he took off the weights, but he wouldn't do that if he didn't need to. He was pretty sure that the bandits would not be worth it, but maybe…

Kurome nods to Daichi. "Keep alert. And I want you to describe to me everything that you see while we travel until we reach a half-mile out of the camp. Hai? This is an evaluation of your perception skill."

Daichi nods slowly continuing along with Kurome. As they are traveling most things like trees he ignores, but he points out the eventual squirrel or two that they pass in view. Kurome surely saw every single one of them plus some, but Daichi at least pointed out most obvious things and a few things just out of normal sight. Upon reaching about the half-mile point from the camp he stops doing that, and stays behind Kurome some just in case she needs to tell him something secretly.
As they come closer to the camp it would be obvious that they have been here for a good while. All that can be seen so far are the perimeter walls, and a few bandits who seem to be keeping look out. So far only about four of them are in view with two keeping an eye out on the side that Kurome and Daichi are approaching from.
"Okay, Daichi-kun…" Kurome murmurs. "We need to take these two out quietly. A joint attack. We also need to do it quickly so they don't sound the alarm. Got it? I'll leave it to you to decide how to do this, but on my signal, I need you to charge them. Hai? Move to the other side for now… And wait." Kurome would make sure Daichi understood, then she would move away to a spot where Daichi would be able to see her still
Daichi would do just as she says without much of a word. A simple nod was all that was done before he moved to the other side. Now from his position he watche Kurome to see what she does to signal the attack. He prepares a kunai, so if he needs to he could stab the person. He planned to knock them to the ground, and disable his opponent.
The guards seem distracted in conversation for now, but a word from a nearby man signals them to get back to looking. They have not caught on yet, but it seems they are looking off towards where both Kurome and Daichi are hiding. Luckily it was still just these two up front.

Kurome signals to Daichi to move out, then, moving in swiftly and striking one of the men so that he can't move at all. With that done, she would slice his throat… You know, unless he avoided the attack -.- Because she wasn't really trying that hard. Her sharingan wasn't even activated.
Daichi watched for the signal and charged. Luckily it seemed her moving first attracted their attention, and that allowed him to get up behind the first one before trying to knock him off his feet. Then he would try to quickly dispatch him with a downward strike to his neck. No need to kill, but he couldn't risk anything dangerous happening because he didn't.

They were not quick enough to react even when seeing Kurome charging them. The first bandit would collide with his chest stunning him before that kunai cuts into his neck causing him to bleed out there. The other one was about to attack her when he was knocked right off his feet, and felt a similar jab right into his throat causing the gurgling of blood to be heard. From this position all the other bandits could be seen that were nearby. Seemed every other one were now gathered around a small fire with one standing out as their leader with a big club on his back.
Kurome would have Daichi help her drag the bodies off to the side. "Okay, Daichi-kun… I think we're going to have to do this a bit different. We're heavily outnumbered right now, but the enemy doesn't know we're here. What do you suggest?" she asks.
Daichi helps Kurome carry the bodies off to the side, and listens to her words closely. Though when he is asked about what he suggests he frowns slightly. He knew that if they didn't hurry they might soon find their friends mission so he didn't question it…much. "Ummm me? Alright…. I think if me the weaker of the two of us can somehow get their attention you may be able to quickly dispatch them while distracted. Or we could both strike from opposite sides with you attacking first to allow me to attack their blind spot like what happened with these two. I think I would suggest the second one though because it sounds like it would work better….well that is unless we have a lot of time. If we have plenty of time we could just somehow convince some of them to walk this way, and slowly lower their numbers…that would take a long time though I think." He does frown slightly at that, but looks to her for an opinion on his suggestions.
Kurome nods. "Alright, now consider this. I am a user of genjutsu and can likely affect most of the ones over there. Given that, I can probably keep them in their place and allow you to destroy them all." She pauses, eyes turning red and revealing three tomoe. "I think that plan might be a good one, no? Though yours are all very good if neither of us knew genjutsu, Daichi-kun. But you need to remember that the shinobi world is more than just taijutsu and ninjutsu…"
RP: Kurome transforms into SHARINGAN-III.
"I suppose you're right Kurome. I forget to think about it honestly. It isn't something I use myself." He frowns, but nods to her to allow her to strike whenever she is ready. He would stick behind her until he knew that the genjutsu was set on them.
One of the bandits was now getting up to see what was going on up front. It wouldn't take him long to stumble across there being no one there if Kurome and Daichi didn't hurry up.

[NPC System]: Boss Bandit roll(s) Genjutsu perception from 25 to 45 and get(s) a 44. - Rolled by: Daichi
Kurome would make a few handseals, and then the whole group of bandits would (hopefully) fall under the spell of her genjutsu. Each of them would have to suffer from seeing their own death. A mouse crawled up their leg and bit their throats, a scorpion stung them, some random person stabbed them through the heart… All sorts of different deaths that would all leave them to be lifeless husks while the illusion was in place.
So the moment all of them seem stunned in the genjutsu Daichi jumps out throwing kunai at his targets. He wasn't amazing at throwing a lot at once, so he didn't get all of them, but the ones that he did hit seemed to drop dead. Those did not include the big one in the back though sadly. Luckily this genjutsu is probably enough to deal with most of them until Kurome can kill or capture the ones Daichi doesn't.

Kurome makes a few handseals. "I suggest not getting too close," she warns the young Satonezu before she unleashes a huge ball of fire that would decimate all but the leader of this group of bandits. Also the ones that Daichi had killed would just remain stabbed… She wasn't going to waste chakra!
Daichi got back some as all the people were singed except for one. The man that was left was whow as assumed to be their boss, and by the looks of him being the one still here he probably was. As that genjutsu wore off he looked around him in shock, but it didn't take long for the man to set his eyes on the person closest to him. Daichi was already charging since the flames were by now gone, and he went straight for a leaf gale. If it hit the man might not fall just from his utter size, but it would at least make him stumble. Daichi then hops into the air into a leaf whirlwind spinning twice more then normal to knock the man to the ground and hopefully unconcious.

The big boss mans attempts to block the attack would be him moving his big club in the way of every attack. Sadly every single attack hit the club which just allowed the man to return the attacks with extreme anger. The man would swing at Daichi's head once he had landed which if it collided would probably send him flying to the side. Then he would throw the gigantic club towards where Kurome was.

Kurome avoids the club rather easily, Sharingan telling her its path and helping her avoid it. "Mph…" She mutters, not moving to defend Daichi. She wanted to see if he could perform okay. Instead, she works on trying to get eye contact with the head leader, forcing them into another genjutsu that would paralyze them.

Daichi flips over the club as it is swung landing nearby. Though it was in such a way that the guy had though he hit meaning he looked right at the Uchiha. That instantly caused him to be put into a trapped state. Daichi takes the time now to hit a leaf whirlwind to the guy three times which would hopefully send him crashing into the ground hard. Once he was down Daichi would pull out a little bit of rope to tie him up. He hadn't needed to kill him, and wouldn't kill him while defenseless.
The guy being trapped would get knocked around by each on unable to escape the power of the sharingan, and quickly falls unconcious from the combined assault of the genjutsu and taijutsu attacks. Even if the ropes were not enough to hold him he was out of it, and would probably be for a while if they took him back with them. Though he would be a pain to carry if they didn't wake him, so it would be left to Kurome to decide what to do with him.

Kurome nods a bit at the teamwork that ensued, then she goes to tied up that dude that she and Daichi just knocked out. "Good job, Daichi-kun. We'll take him back for a bit of questioning." She smiles, ninja wire digging deep into her prisoner's skin. "Now then, let's return to Konoha. The rest of these bodies can be left to rot… We've no use for them.
Daichi nods in agreement with Kurome as they begin their trek back to Konoha. The bodies would be left behind to rot as far as they knew, and the big guy they had with him wouldn't try to run. Actually he seemed fairly intimidated by Kurome, and anytime she would look near him he would quickly turn away to avoid the possible Sharingan. It wouldn't take long for them to get back luckily, and they wouldn't have any trouble on there way back. Mission completed.
