Once again, Kyo's keen senses saved him, only this time it was the supreme hearing that their Silent Killing training afforded and not his own natural acuity. It was impossible to mask the bodily sounds of an entirely different being, nor did a whisper in the otherwise silent space not alert the swordsman. It was with this that Kyo just noticed - his opponent was no longer suppressed. Of course, he would have had to stop doing that to manipulate the wire in the first place. Well, if he's going to cheat...
Kyo thought to himself, willing his chakra to spread crystal across his body as the pair came together. This did light up passive sensory, of course, revealing that he was no longer suppressed, but the dark warehouse didn't give away the nature of the technique, the armor suddenly surrounding him invisible unless reflecting light or, of course, actively
sensed. Not that any of that mattered when the two were hurtling at one another at speeds that were rarely matched and only in the most extreme of cases exceeded. The most subtle of shifts had the far more dexterous of the pair adjusting slightly, letting the needle scrape off of Kyo's crystalline armor and allowing him a moment to disengage, footwork padding quietly around any wire and both weapons dedicated to deflection now as he attempted to reset. A brief glance down at his torn sleeve, the slight burr on the crystal face of his protected skin showing through it, left him giving a slight puff of air in amusement. "Well, alright,"
he stated. "Hiramekarei - Kaihō."
In the instant of the command, the weapon did his bidding, prismatic chakra flowing down from the top of the blades to settle in a slightly ominous thrum. The form of the Twinsword only inspired comfortable confidence in Kyo, however, and he set himself into stance, his right sword held in a forward guard and the left held out just a bit. "I had intended on saving all this for after lunch, just so you know,"
he quipped, knuckles tightening and then loosening grip, rolling up from the pinky. Then the weapon rapidly spun up and over his head, its tip aiming for the rider on Mizui's arm before that multihued chakra sped forward, guided by the man's will.
