Soma didn't know if his taunts would work, not all shinobi where arrogant, yet sadly it was the fatal flaw of many, they where prideful and arrogant, and trusted on there abilities more than anyone should, the harm was not trusting on there own skills it was reaching that point where they practically believed they where unstoppable, sadly even though Soma was well aware this was the flaw of many, he could not see this too was his own flaw.
As the first Kunai whizzed toward him Soma didn't have much time to react, he expected her to charge not to start throwing things, this was a bad omen indeed, since she had shown skills in mid range combat, and areas he didn't exactly excel in, his body shifted as fast as it could, yet he did not want to move to far from the pole this would prove to be his downfall as the cold metal of the kunai grazed his arm, not willing to go through that again he clenched his hand, chakra flowing to his ring, the temperature around him lowering, right now he didn't need to worry about his heat cold, but there was another trick up his sleeve, his armor
the was made out of frostweave
and the colder it was the harder the material got.
His cold eyes saw his opponent dart at him, fast, he knew drawing his sword was not the best option, as she got close enough to attack he watched her offensive chain's headed his way a stupid idea crossed his mind as he darted forward, raising his arm to block the chain, he hoped that between the frostweve and the metal fins on his arm guard the damage would not be to great
If she still decided to attach the chain, he keep pouring chakra into his ring in order to keep his armor strong, and seemingly struggle as she pulled him close, once close enough, he would activate the Hell raiser
on the hand that had not been chained down, blue frosty blades would swing at her in order to deflect her Kunai, while he, stomped down at her feet, cause really, this was his best plan in such a short notice...
