She walked down the small hill and to the tall tree that had been taking arrow upon arrow into its trunk. A light film of snow on the ground crunched beneath Ninoya's green sandals. The girl pulled the few arrows she shot from the tree, looking over the target she had engraved into the trunk. There was a wide circle and within that a smaller circle. The perfect shot was directly in the center of the target. Aggravated Ninoya was unable to get a "perfect" shot off from the distance she was at. She always hit the inner circle, but not the direct center.
It pissed her off.
Snow crunched beneath her weight as she knelt once more, pulling back the string on her bow. "Okay. Just focus." At this point frustration was more of a hindrance than her lack of skill as a genin. If she could just learn to focus, remain calm, and--
The arrow hit the line between outer and inner circle. Her worst shot so far. "God damn it!" She screamed, her free hand slamming against the tree beside her. She dropped her bow and wrapped her free hand around her now-injured one. "Shit. Stupid trees." She hissed, looking up to the targeted tree.
Ninoya's eyes flickered over to an elk moving about in the forest. It must have been startled by the archer's outburst. She picked pulled another arrow from her holster and picked up her bow, pulling back the tense string. Pushing chakra into the arrow, Ninoya could feel her weapon strengthening.
Had she taken a few seconds to think about what was happening, she would have stopped. She would not have prepped her bow and aimed it for the innocent creature. But she didn't, and she let the string go and the arrow flew toward the elk.
It was an instant death as the arrow pierced the animal's heart. Ninoya had done many missions that required her to hunt deer and elk for snow country villages, she knew how to kill. This wasn't for a mission or survival though, this was out of anger.
Exhaling, Ninoya took a moment to look at the creature fall. Anger was slowly fading to guilt, and frustration toward herself.
Range: Direct Contact
Jutsu Type: Yumijutsu
Elemental Affinity: --
Description: In a pinch, especially in close combat, Ninoya may need to resort to fighting hand-to-hand or with a weapon. If she has no weapons but her bows and arrows, she will use them to fight up close. To help with this, Ninoya will push chakra into her bow and/or arrows to give them more "substance" and power; this will allow her to fight using her arrows and bows like direct contact weapons, rather than ranged weapons. They will also be less fragile and not as easy to break.
