Nishiki was running and running, trying hard not to panic as his heart pounded fast and his brain worked on overload, his breath deep and audible as he moved at maximum speeds.
Unsure of where the Raikage even went and beginning to feel the giant scalpel to turn, the boy simply let go of his kinesis and pressed on but without something going their way there was nothing he could do so there was only one option left given the perilous situation he was in and the danger of their opponents he had no other choice, had to... Had to... Had to... To... To... To... T...
All the colour began to fade as grey raced towards the young Tsukino, washing over his body until it drained even him, turning the world into still silence as it all seemed to rumble and shatter.
Everything all around began to crumble and melt, collapsing in on the fox and sweeping him up in a chaotic whirl as he crumbled into dust along with it until it span and swooped across to turn the world to darkness.
With nothing but black left it slowly seemed to pull out, revealing iridescent golden rings seemingly forming together as one big ring then beyond that there was white; an eye, Nishiki's eye.
Pulling further away the reflection of a dream, a plan, an idea could be seen fading from the boy's eyes as its dance came to an end and a determined but panicked look slowly began to crunch down and shift into pure panic as it zoomed out further.
Whatever ideas may have been had were now wiped clean, CANCELLED!
There would be no complete dodge into a roll. There would be no lightning armour. There would be no vague attempt at possible kinesis. There would be no further running.
Worst of all, there would be no chance for Nishiki to proclaim the words "This is nuts!".
Nishiki was flying through the air mid-dodge, everything seemingly going just right enough when he noticed a stream of wind pull from the shuriken with nothing he could do.
In that moment his panicked plans to get away where crushed, his life seemingly freezing for a moment before everything truly began to go wrong.
Beyond realms and realities one might expect the boy to suddenly turn and proclaim some nonsense about wondering how he got here but instead the wind simply slashed into him with great speed and strength.
he screamed in pain, his body now tumbling with whirl of blood spiraling through the air until he crashed along the forest floor.
In a daze and with great pain the Special Jounin no longer knew what to do and couldn't really seem to move other to turn just enough to see the giant blade's descent, its descent right into his body.
he wailed even louder, not even truly sure what such a pain really was as it seemed the scalpel phased right through his outer body and tared his innards.
Somehow, someway, he had still managed to fly far enough with his dodge without being able to keep running, thanks to Hayate's attack, so that only his lower part of his body was caught.
Though the boy was truly loathe to call it some kind of miracle as he was pretty decimated and surely beginning to bleed out, his thoughts swirling as he became unsure of how he could even escape with panic truly flooding his mind.
"Pathetic, let me do it!"
a voice rumbled in his mind through all the panic, alerting the jinchuuriki just enough as he now started to think about all the moments he lost control.
Nishiki whimpered out loud, tears starting to form, deciding last moment to drag Yoshimitsu down with him as it all seemed to fade.
Not really sure what was happening anymore a primal will to live took over and the Kirigakure shinobi's body began to act on its own, his mind seemingly blacked out to everything but escape as a faint glow of magenta chakra filled him along with a faint memory of an idea.
Suddenly lightning burst around the boy's body in a deep, eerie fashion, surging out and pushing against the chakra of the scalpel in a last ditch effort to break free just before it suddenly lifted.
Though the strange blade had lifted it moved deeper into the forest and began a large sweep, leaving only a small space to avoid it which if Nishiki was not already collapsed to the ground he probably wouldn't be able to.
Perhaps being attacked by the Raikage's fuuton kinesis was some weird godsend, though perhaps it wasn't truly as the Tsukino was still in massive pain and grave danger with his mind racing so much so he couldn't even make out any of the ramblings from other parties coming through the comms.
His will to live still overpowering him, the young fox began to claw his way through the dirt once some reason started to come back to him, dragging his legs along although it was an awful effort and quite painful so he truly was not going far and someone could easily bonk him out in seconds.
