The ANBU gave a satisfied grunt, pleased to know he wouldn't have to wander far to deal with the rogue. He bent down to examine the unconscious body.
"Yeah, sure. I'll bring you back the reward." The ANBU nodded, taking the man from Hugo's grasp. He vanished in a puff of smoke.
Meanwhile, the ANBU's companion returned, dashing out of the forest as fast as he could. Sweat ran down his bare arms, soaking the fabrics of his kunai holsters on his hips. He skidded to a halt, trying to catch his breath.
"Get out of here while you still can!" He commanded Neji, then getting up to run in the same direction with increased speed.
The main ANBU returned in another puff of smoke, a bag of 100 Ryo in its hand. He handed the Ryo over to Neji.
"Did you see my companion just a few minutes ago? I got something garbled on my microphone..." He asked, pointing to his mask where a microphone would have been hidden underneath.
