Within the 56 hours of their stay, the Kirigakure shinobi had experienced the hospitality of the Land of Lions. They were provided shelter and giving with warmest of welcomes. Their bellies had been filled with protein riched foods, provided with appropriate dieted and regulated foods so they were not victims of sluggish movements nor tired from excessive eating. A burst of energy had shot through Sumato's body as he could feel the rich-nutrients foods that flowed through his system helped kept him motivated and ambitious to see this mission through. His frequent conversations with the purple-haired woman brought up new and progressive information that would have lead to Team 2 knowing the whereabouts of the Beast scroll and the shinobi who carried it. As they rested and retreated for the two and a half nights, the bandits had tireless followed the trail of the individual who held the precious scroll. With the clues presented to him, Sumato was able to preciously navigate the whereabouts of the scroll-bearing wandering and the bandits who followed. His eyelids closed and his brain activity had traversed elsewhere as it summoned itself into the soap-spheres that mimicked that of an eyeball. The bubbles had traversed East, North, and South. Connecting his optic nerve via chakra link with the numerous bubbles that hovered over the three different terrains, the thin sphere of liquid allowed for Sumato to have a large field of vision. Surveilling over the terrains he could accurately pinpoint the locations of the bandits, where they had set their traps, and most importantly the location of the man who bore the scroll. Inherently born with hyperthymesia, Sumato's bubble eyes helped the jonin learn the whereabouts of the traps and how to disarm them. These bandits were not inexperienced and hide these traps where the common man or shinobi who bore the naked eye could not immediately see. Bowing to the young lady for the information, the jonin lead his team to the South of the village.
Imbuing his soap chakra within the water molecules surrounding the three shinobi, three moderate size bubbles would form around the Kirigakure ninja and again they would travel via Water Release: Bubbles Technique-Drift. With his command, the three would travel to the south of the village appearing there within a minute or less. Gravitating closer to the ground, the bubbles would pop releasing the shinobi from the sphere's confines. Looking at his two pupils and instructing them on what to do, he'd exemplify how to change their chakra from their normal means into molding their chakra and changing it into sensor type chakra in order to sense the chakra imbued traps that varied from wire string, hidden sealing tags, wooden log traps. Upon using the sensing technique, Sumato was able to sense the conceal paper tags within the trees. Placing his hand towards the trees he would convert his soap chakra into the tree utilizing the stored water and forming a bubble that would encase the tags. Moving a few feet from the tree, while his hand steadily and constantly faced the tree. He would telepathically and forcefully extract the bombs that would have phased from the tree within a bubble, had the bombs exploded they would be in the confines of a small bubble barrier that could withstand the explosion within the contents to stay within the bubble. This process was repeated and with the crafty swordsmen ship of Takezo and the mental and telepathic abilities of Kazuo they would help extract and disarm the traps.
Extracting all of the traps that laid in their way, it was now safe to travel through the terrain and the team would have done just that as they had calmly passed through the forest within the new bubbles that entrapped the three and allowed for them for a safe and efficient journey. Constructed with elasticity, durability, and the skill to avoid sharp objects, the bubble would transport them safely through the forest allowing for it to not pop as they traversed. Ensnared in a barrier-like jutsu that the bubbles helped hide the physical appearance and chakra of the three mist shinobi, this prevented them from being sensed thus giving them an upper-hand to attack the bandits by surprise. Speaking to his two pupils via telepathic, he would warn them of the great risk that they would now face and that they'd be encountering battle. Navigating the bubbles downwards and appearing in the middle of the bandits, Sumato would form a hand seal as pop the bubbles, setting the team of three in the middle of the bandits. Converting the bubbles back into liquid soap, the popping of the bubbles would relinquish a mysterious moisture that targeted the eyeballs of the bandits temporarily blinding them if they had not evaded. Simultaneously the peculiar liquid would cover the ground and reducing its friction, considerably limiting the opponents' movements. Looking at Kazuo and Takezo, he'd shake his head symbolizing to cast their jutsu in furthering defeating the enemies that stood before them.
