Rei looked back at Katsuro and sighed. "You only speak a half truth. Emotion;s only corrupt if you let them. Nothing more, nothing less. If me being an empathic disgusts you then so be it. But do not give me speeches when you yourself have not been a mortal nor have willingly stepped foot into a realm full of emotions. Lecture me when you've stepped foot into my world and experienced my hell as an empath, captain. Only then would I listen to a speech from you about emotions. sure..I know you care..and I'm happy that you do. But you better give it some serious thought before you go lecturing. Your right, I do need to go home. I'm still just a kid when it comes to useing my abilites. But make no mistake captain Katsuro, You cannot truly walk into the grey untill you have been in both the black and the white and overcame the fear of death as a mortal. Why don;t you just just suck it up and shove your soul back where it belongs? in yourself. If you can;t even do that, then don;t even bother telling me im wrong and disgusting or anyone else for that matter. i've already lost my sister and that man has ruined too many lives for the sake of pure vengance. That;s my challenge to you..find me and tell me i'm wrong when your mortal for once. Tell me I'm a disgusting empath once you a mortal. Otherwise..don;t even bother. I'm leaving now. I need some fresh air." Taking her leave she would wait for the others to be done. Deciding it best not to be around anyone else for a while. she had spoken her mind and said her peice and she had a nasty point. you couldn;t lecture an empath and call one disgusting unless you had at least known what it was like to be one. for this sake she had to be alone to keep her emotions stable until she could stand tall again and walk forward. Even at that point she didn;t want harm to come to anyone. Yet the challenge had be cast to captain katsuro the self proclaimed immortal..either shut up and prove rei wrong, or don;t ever give out another speech again when she has no right. sure it was a harsh way of throwing the gauntlet down..she was hurt and upset. But..in the end..she was pushing one point and it was..to truly stand in the grey..jacked knifed on razor's edge..one must see and have felt both the good and bad as a mortal. and learn to handle it and overcome it.
Katsuro closed their eyes, and it had the same effect on Byakuya the foolish people you've brought. And Katsuro responded to the noble ,''I'm immortal it is arrogant for me to even bother with a mortals problems.....however I am in the shoes of a mortal when I see them perish needlessly.......but I'll not give the benefit to my makers that I bowed or even became complacent to the idea they were going to euthanize me to seek immortality for themselves I'll not give them the laughter of seeing me perish for their own envy or grand illusions even if they are dead I must reject their ideas and fabrications and reject the idea of mortals good or bad because neither spectrum rescued me in time before they tried to put me into their death chamber....it was too late I took their hex and turned it on them it is what they deserved for all the other kids that perished......,''!! And then Byakuya responded do not let it worry you the young are difficult to reason with and as the girl said before she isn't the daimo and besides everything we all face our own challenges I do envy you ability to see the solutions so clearly though. Then Katsuro simply got back to dining on the feast. ,''I should go though enjoy the dinner Byakuya....I've got to go to squad 12....''!!
Tenohira sighed, eating fried chicken. And Lunaris had a tight expression, saying ,''Katsuro is right......Tenohira.....I was fabricated by Kresnik for my father.....I rejected being a kresnk though so it is easy to reject the hands of your makers just because who'd want to be their puppet.....to be honest I'm full of rage and sorrow because I've got kresnik inside and ougen......I'd sooner reject it myself too.....but Kresnik is playing with me now more than ever.......I must confront him like Katsuro did with their parents.....before I fall any further into rage and sorrow.....sorrow is one's truth after all......I wish I could detach myself from him completely sever the connection between us but the body and powers granted to me....i earned those for my suffering.,''!! And then Tenohira responded at least talk to your father the spirit king back in the court.
Melodi was eating next to Ryukko and listening silently to Te conversations around her. After what had just happened and listening to what katsuro had just said as well as the conversation exchanged between tenohira and Lunaris she looked up at Katsuro and smiled warmly. And perhaps spoke her mind both in a more peaceful mannor but in a way that made perfect sense. "I believe it is never too late katsuro. All it takes is an open mind and a single step forwards. You both have valid point and valid faults in this case. Besides..you did what you had to but..I think it would be best said forget the creator and love for the ones that make you, you. that dna had to come from some one..somewhere. I doubt they wouldn;t be like those idiots that tried to do you in. Truly you;ve seen the bad side..maby all you lack is the good? Who knows..what you might find in a single step forwards. Well..enjoy squad 12 then. it was a pleasure meeting you captain."
In turning her attention back to Tenohira and Lunaris she huffed. "Oh give me a break Lunaris, you got ouigin in you alright..so no need to reject yourself there. Sides..the way i see you and tenohira make eyes at each other hahahaa. But tenohira is right, better off talking to grandad about it. As much as I dont like the old man. Yea ok long story short, we got issues..he shouldn;t have lied, nuff said. Okay okayyy sooo maby me and royalty dont get along so well either...dont give me that look tenohira..ask your mother about it. dont feel like explaining it. it's a long story and well lets say it's why dear old great uncle xenith isn;t alive any more."
must roll 1300..........1-5 over all plus 200 Katsuro was already on walk to squad 12. And they had Issari with me ,''hnh open minded i was surely open when I took help from mortals like them.....and the only white I'll carry is this haori......Issari your happy with me as your taicho....,''!! Then Issar grinned of course you've got a sunny cool disposition that evens out us crazy mortals. Then Katsuro responded ,''sighs Izuru then.....hnhm the nerve of those mortals.....they should take one step back and worship my immortality it is arrogant in itself to think I need help from them more like fate shoved me in their laps quite a bad variable to the daily equation.....,''!! Moving into the gates of squad 12, erupting with the blue aura once more, saying ,''my reishi is tied to my immortality now as the hex has adapted and grown to accommodate my increments as a shinigami ......daimo are you sure about this you might DIE...this only uses 200 cores the out put might get rough.....I will try to out put the 13 frequency you want in the reishi transfer to align up ,''!!
Zaphira managed to stand before the squad five captain, thanking Nemu for helping them. And then she said ,''I've technically died because Kresnik put a strange particle of himself inside me.....I need you to switch it out directly.......I need you to lend me a little bit of that reishi directly to my soul....but Katsuro i might explode because our immortal energies aren't alike......it is a long shot......we have to try I got myself into this mess i'll take responsibility my curiosity got the better of me...chi......do it when your ready....krensnik is a master of the mortal soul he has trouble with immortals is the reason why you met Mikito like you did it was fate.........,''!!
The squad five captain's reishi became a cyclone and soon a storm about squad 12. Then Katsuro commented, gripping the blade in both hands ,'fate....just be ready...the reishi gift is coming your bleaching powers might cause a back fire hnh then something as imaginary as fate is all you have hnh.,''? The zankpaktoh began burning direct light, burning blue breath, saying ,''this is god's breath dragon shout over my blade .......it is what my reishi has become be ready to receive it good or bad I take your immortality you lose it or I fix what Kresnik has done to it.......,''!!!
Lunaris sighed, saying ,''it has started.....the daimo's plan to re-ignite their lightning king soul.....as it were....,'!! And they grasped onto Tenohira's hand ,''let's put our chips in fate......zaphira isn't here so all we have is a stranger hnh we met by fate..,''!!
Melodi nodded and cast her chips as well. "Fate's a funny thing isn;t it? Who knows what'll happen. I know what I'm betting on. Like a crap shoot with a one time roll. Well, Faith and devil's luck don;t fail me now!! speaking of which..will you two just tie the knot already? Geeze Lunaris..it's about as easy to see."
As rei sat against a tree She felt that ineveitable pull as her finger sparked. But..wait this wasn;t right..Stnading up she looked towards squad twealve's direction and wondered what was going on..maby she was just tired and imagining thngs. Or was it the daimo's key comining up strong? Wolfwood came up behind her and leaned over. "Fates got a funny way of doing things. Can;t help what it does no matter what we do. I'm goin' all in kiddo, how bout ya do the same. Eh, don;t get in such a huff. you did what you did a month ago for the daimo's sake didn;t you? Why should it change now because of some bad things and some stupid words? Welp im cashing out, you comin or not? here this place has one heck of an ice cream parlor." Strange...wasn;t it that time when the daimo had agreed to let rei become a sub sqaud member and take the oath in a ice cream parlor? But why be reminded of it now? She followed but somehow felt better as if she was casting in her chips to the fates.
over all plus 200 Katsuro's reishi increased more, flowing over the seretei now and the captains were present and watching from their own spots, putting it in the hands of Katsuro and the stranger's king. They were pressing the tip of their blade to the daimo's solar plexux, but it wasn't piercing. The daimo spoke you've never done anything like this for someone else have you. And Katsuro braced as their was a blow back as the area's gravity increased 20x the normal. It was filling with a thick amount of light particles too so much you could nearly make out the traces of them like rain. Katsuro spoke, saying ,''No.........,''!! Kresnik was in his throne room, saying what what are you doing you'll give her back her immortality STOP IT ALL THAT MANA WORK WILL BE WASTED if only I had the aether as a capture too, shattering a vase but he grinned it might not work let's pray on my old tricks to see my campaign further. The squad five captain let their haori tear off their back and shoulders, saying ,''I won't stop can't stand mortals any more so I have to send you home so THAT IDIOTIC REI CAN SEE THERE PRECIOUS ILLUSIONS....I'LL BLOW AWAY THE ILLUSION IN THE WAY KRESNIK's delusion of revenge......if not you know how it it is...,''!! The daimo smiled this is my fault thanks for trying for my sake immortal fairy. And Katsuro attempted it, crunching their feet in and hands bleeding ,''grrrrrrr..(an extra eruption of energy from katsuro's back)......Ban-kai,''!!! They had made the word of the vaunted bankai, but it did nothing. And Katsuro spoke on it trying to pierce the daimo ,''kuso me use bankai I can't staying in alignment is taking all of my attention and your well being....,''!! Then Zaphira shook their head don't give up baka Mikito would die before doing so you can't die so keep going until I explode.
Lunaris gulped, saying ,''were going to fail...our luck is going to run out....there must be something we can do melody.....it is a donation of immortal to another.....god dam it.....Mikito why didn't you come...,''!! They could sure use Mikito's style about now.
Melodi was now watching from the side lines and not likeing the looks of things as was Rei. Melodi was the first top hop down yet looking totally uneffected from the field around her. "Baka, you can and you will!! Tha'ts what being a mortal's all about, being stupid, stubbron, and damn idiotic till the end. you didn;t eject crap Katsuraku. Now shut up and focus all your spiritual pressure into your blade and concentrait on peircing her. just have heart and faith..you CAN do it!! SOUL RESONANCE!!" In a stunning moment due to a simple touch on the back melody sprouted a single wing on her balck that had been checkered black and white. Resonating her energy strait into Katsuro. Forcing her to not only get a gigantic surge of spiritual pressure the likes she had probably never felt, but over all she had now hit final ignition. Rei watched onwards wanting to help but being held back by wolfwood. "No kiddo, you go into that, you might walk out of it alive. Remember..even if you took the raw power and forced it into katsuro, you couldn;t sync. even if you could, you'd hit a lash back. This is what your mother is capable of..and damn she;s going over baord..she;s overloaded everything and pushing it all into Katsuro. I've not seen that form since she was still alive."
*soul resonance full rsonance!! the small fraction of melodie's core is now being resonated within katsuro's inner world thus resonating with mel. all of melodi's spiritual pressure and power is literally being forced into katsuro all at once granting her ALL forms and abiliteis mel has on a temporary bases. the over all effect grants a total bonus of +700.
1-5 soul tear active.... Katsuro soon attempted once more, looking at the daimo eye to eye ,''you can't do anything thanks for trying Melody.....but my shinigami powers and immortality are one in the same....your mortal soul resonance isn't fully effective..........grrr I only need to donate some immortal reishi to you daimo.....one last time before god's breath runs dry.....,''!! The pressed the tip to the daimo's chest. And then Katsuro saw Mayuri trotting up towards them, seeing their out put was lowering.
no heart immortal soul tear -600 plus 800 to over all dmg plus 350 from mel's attempt to donate a hand... Mayuri sighed, saying ,''immortal immortal......immortal why not throw in just go in undead immortal that will really amp you up my goodness did it even cross your mind to use that one little core even if it means a small expense .....,''!! And then Katsuro sighed coming to a faint annoyance you can have the organ. Then Mayuri grinned, saying ,''excellent......,''!! He shunpo close, and he stabbed Katsuro's heart, ripping it right out from their back side ,''activate soul tear core....and thanks for the heart.,''!! He put the heart in a cooler yet.
Katsuro's soul tear core activated as soon as complete organ failure took place. And the captain's reishi or rather the blue immortal's aura became a space tower of a beam, piercing their blade into the daimo ,''hnh another nap in the vault it is then.....and I should ask sometime what is the point of all the organs for....,''!! And Zaphira smiled, getting fixed upon getting jolted by immortal reishi or rather the small amount of it. Katsuro pulled their blade free, seeing the daimo glow white though ,''mortals are exhausting and so are other immortals....,''!! Then Zaphira put their hands together with a big smile I like to watch them to the mortals they are silly creatures. Then Katsuro had a sour expression ,''immortals looking after mortals what a pain...,''!! Zaphira smiled poor Katsuro the immortal too much excitement in your daily life in eternal paradise me too I think I'd like to return home and spend a couple 1000 there before I ever travel again.
Melodi sat strait up and coughedl "oi oi hey watch it. flinging that kind of reishi around might give me wrinkles..god raising kids has given me enough as it is. MMMph..I hope my right hand didn't feed off of that. That thing didn't come with a book. tch. Well if your going to be staying Zaph, please get rid of granpa. Isn;t he supposed to be dead? if not then at least make it clear he's not in charge. Hmm well since were going home, I'd at least like to say sorry for rei getting a bit of an attatude..swaer it's a bit rare for her. you dont gotta take her challenge or the like Katsuro. She'll live and get over things eventually. Though if you do..come find me, heh, Being mortal ain;t so bad...well..unless you an idiot like me with the best devil's luck in the buisness. Man after this kresnick stuff is over..I think I might retire for a bit. Would like to see ...crap...i just adopted ryuuko...why do I do these things!?" Same old melodi same old randomness.
Rei sighed as she hit the ground. "God..I can;t keep up. I want my kid and doughnuthead. grampa..i'm sorry. just..It's hard to loose someone so close. PErhaps if momma had found her when she was younger." Wolfwood just sat down next to her. "Kiddo..back then no one knew how messed up things where..your mom didn;t even know she was bein' used as a tool of war. You read those journals. Had you mom realized it while she was alive..maby. But..it wasn;t meant to be. Your just tired and meantaly shot. a knew world, the prospect of a missing aether, all this all at once..no one ever said it was easy. Heh..I reject imortaily as there is no such thing as god."
Zaphira opened up the lines of communication, feeling fine ,''everyone let's go home to the court.....you did well as you could....,'!! And then Zaphira converted out a bunch of coins at least a couple 100 ,''if you use these coins you can come past the veil to see and visit us.....and the kresnik thing might still be a problem so best to keep in contact.....the coins are two way but are only good for a three day package then your sent back here.....and I'm a bit single so sighs nobody was interested out there either...,''!! And Katsuro was already walking away, making the daimo sigh, looking at Melody ,''if I put him in charge I don't have to work hard though yawn....,''!! Then the daimo could take them home any time now ,''so home it is then....,''!!
Issari followed their captain aren't you gonna say good bye. And Katsuro kept moving ,''you can if you'd like I've no interest in mortals for a couple weeks.....,''!! Then Issari made a frown the captain is gonna make us work hard that means until we make a slip up dam stupid mortals wait I'm mortal s**t sighs.
Melodi sighed. rolling her eyes. that familure half cocked goofy smile of hers. "What happened to poisson eh? fine finneee, but he better apologize up front for what he did back then and accept we are family. old man can;t deny he;s been out of touch for how many years now? Side's..once this is all over I'm taking a vacation. Perhaps i'll find a nice spot around here eh? or go to my condo in austrailia..wait..what's my scarf..."
a tuff act to follow...or..sometimes it's better to just give up before you even begin or..DONT TOUCH MY DAMN RED SCARF!!
Lucid had indeed followed and had been behind the scens plotting once again. Standing in front of Katsuro openly mocking Melodi. "Kyaahahahaaa what now James!? I'll end you and every one connected to you!! figured if you saw the scarf you;d catch on..how bout i make th captain watch s I gut the boy? eh? huh!? where'd she go!?" too little too late as Melodi was already behind Lucid and in the throws of laying an unholy smack down. Leaving him screaming bloody murder. "that MY scarf from MY wife you DAMN moron!! NO ONE touches save for me..and get off the kill james kick..this ain;t kill bill and your getting old..really quick..oh no, not your spleen, oh yes your spleen, and your arms, and your legs, and your face lucid. after that im breaking that damn scythe and that ugly flute once and for all. Your a dangerious nut case. " with that done she kept her word as he screamed. one thing you never did was touch her red scarf. and she meant it. she finished with a solid punch to his face which probably meant he;d need reconstruction on it. kicking him in the ribs she picked him up. dragging him along and wrapping the scarf around her neck. "Swear..I get involved and the loonies come out of the wood work..see katsuro..this is why I dont like the spot light. Sigh..welp,, be seeing ya soon. till then..scuse the mess. Got a highschool kid to raise and this nut job to shove in a nut ward. Swear..trouble finds me no matter where I go." Walking off she picked up forta and let him crawl onto her shulders. Stopping next to the daimo. "Let's go home..I gota kid to bury and a nut case to throw in a strait jacket. Eh..look at it this way..at least you got forte to mess around with and share juiceboxes with. shoulda seen him. can't believe hit he fought the captain comander hahahaa."
