"No. I need to be faster" came her reply. It was something that she said without thought, because it was ingrained in her very soul. However, due to the speed she was moving, she outran her words and smashed a fist into the chest of the man before the words spoke themselves like some sort of ghost-speaking. But instead of him getting hurt and possibly breaking something and going ouch, he turned into a lot of crows which then tried to attack her. She didn't make a move, their beaks would shatter on her hide, but it was an interesting use of Utsusemi.
When the crows finally dissipated, her first thought was to be angry! He dodged her frigging super-speed. If they used glass around here it would all have been shattered from super-sonic in the lower atmosphere, but he still managed to get away from it. Cheap Utsusemi rather than a full dodge but still. However, her necklace, Mai, spoke soft words and calmed her down so she could actually listen to the man.
"Yea. He said you were an intruder. I figured out you were not a while ago but you annoyed me so I resolved to punch you in the face because wolf pride, and all" she flicked her tail aggitatedly and stared at him. Focusing internally, she had her heart scream, bursting a ton of energy into her system as she activated her Heart's Kiai; One Minute Wolfhood. Lionhood would be to much for this situation.
"So now, kick off" she said, pushing off the ground and flickering around the man so she appeared to be in several places at the same time. Heart's Kiai pushed her far harder than she usually could, but only lasted for a minute, so she needed to get things done now or she'd be unable to work. But she did follow his advice. She was so obsessed with catching him she didn't notice how tense she was getting, how she forced strength over fluidity, so she catch the wind and let it wipe away her heart's tears so she could catch the current and let it bring her movements into a sharper level, and help her boop his head. She wasn't going for a heavy hit anymore, just a ceremonial boop to catch him.
