"Hmpf. Fine, be like that"
Itsuko turned her body around, arms still crossed but eyes closed whilst her eyebrows knitted together in hopelessness. How could she work with a teammate who purposely ignores his team? They were meant to work together, were they not? Her hearing dulled as she thought, drowning out Yusuke's babbling as she thought of a way to work around the situation since who knows how long they'd be on the lookout for. 'I guess I'll just have to watch over the whole area since I can't rely on Yusuke... How annoying, just a waste of time'
Just as Itsuko was ready to make a move, Yusuke's voice seemed to have gotten louder all of a sudden as he yelled a word. Swinging her head to send a glare in Yusuke's direction, she once again spotted his unsheathed Zanpakto but this time Yusuke jumped off the roof. Itsuko's attention now held on the latter, she turned back to jump in the same direction as him, hoping not to lose him since obviously he must have spotted something of promise. "Give me some warning before you do that! Baka!"
Itsuko yelled despite knowing her words would fall on deaf ears.
Yusuke's battle had already commenced before Itsuko finally caught up. Her eye's twitched, widening a touch as she eyed the hollow Yusuke began battling. 'That must be it... I have to report this'
Her eyes then landed on Yusuke's form. Seeing his headphones again made her grunt in annoyance, but he appeared to be... enjoying himself. '... I can't just leave him here and he won't listen to me. I guess it's too late, damn guy already started fighting it. Dammit'
Itsuko wasn't one for leaving someone behind, mainly because she hated the thought of not knowing what might have happened to someone she was meant to keep tabs on, even if they were annoying and rude she still couldn't bring herself to head back without her teammate.
Disgruntled, Itsuko placed her right palm on top of her Zanpakuto hilt, her eyes fixed on the battle, searching for an opening just incase things turned bad for Yusuke. She wasn't just going to stand by and let him get all the glory anyway, that would make her look bad and have an impact on her pride. She'd rather risk her life than let that happen.
As the fight went on, she had made notes on the discoveries she was making on this hollow; gathering information. 'It looks stronger than a usual hollow, but still it's a fundamental fact that the mask is a weak point... Won't really know for sure unless we test that theory out...'
Watching Yusuke fight was making Itsuko feel almost pumped up. He made it look easy, or maybe it was just easy for him... maybe he was stronger than she initially thought.
