It had been three months since Wazasuke had made his way into the Land of Earth, and since then he had begun spying on various shinobi from Iwagakure, looking for any new kekkei genkai to steal from them. So far he had only come across a boy with crystal release, which, after seeing the kid using it a few times in training with his sensei, he was able to pick up on without confronting him. He had thought that prehaps the jonin training the boy had a kekkei genkai, explosion release, but after watching him and not being able to use it himself he had decided that, for one thing it was not a kekkei genkai, but some sort of hidden technique, and two, that it would be too dangerous for him to attempt to take it from the large man.
In recent weeks, however, he came across the Tsukikagayaki clan, which posses a rather useful looking one that made the skin of those who have it turn as hard as stone just before impact. It was a defensive measure for them, but Wazasuke was sure he would be able to master it and use it at will, if he could obtain it. Together the clan looked rather tough, however, if he could get one alone he was sure enough of his own skills to be able to take them on, and now that opportunity was here.
The one called Jethro was alone. Apparently he was looking for something, though Wazasuke hadn't paid enough attention to what exactly, but the point was he was alone.
"This forest can be used to my advantage," he says quietly to himself as he silently follows the man through the trees, "So long as I can keep him within the restrictive area of these he shouldn't be able to use his ninjutsu as well..."
