The King's Crown
Posted 8/21/10 , edited 8/21/10
A man dressed in all black is standing on the SE corner of a tall building of Karakura Town, looking for something. The sun has painted the sky orange and red behind the man and the air is starting to cool from the summer heat. The calmness is soothing yet uneasy at the same time because the man in black knows what happens next. Now, right now, is the eye of the hurricane or the calm before the storm. He takes a deep breath, he breaths in the calm before there is none left.

"...Forgive me brothers and sisters... " The man whispers to himself as he pulls out a small cell phone looking device. He presses a couple buttons and 4 giant glowing towers fall from the sky forming a square about 5km large around the business and entertainment districts. He can hear people begin to panic and question the situation at hand. The man lowers his head and presses another button and everything in that 5km square shrivels into dust, people, animals, buildings, cars, phones, TVs', plants, everything is bare within a long minute and fifteen seconds, the longest minute and fifteen seconds the man in black has every endured.

He jumps down from the building, falling a solid 200ft before landing safely in a crouched position on the street below. He looks up and takes off running to the area he just destroyed as fast as he can, his image is only visible in one place for but a moment before it vanishes again.

He makes it to the area and he starts looking around with wonder and confusion. 'Where is it? FUCK!' He thinks to himself as he stands in a sea of sand. He searches he mind for a step he might have missed or not done well enough but to no avail, he did everything perfectly, that only leave one question: "WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU?!" He shouts as loud as he can. He starts pacing back and forth, looking for an answer but cant find one and he knows he's running out of time.

"Hey you!" A stranger shouts at the man in black who looks back and sees a cop with his gun drawn at him. "What are yo-" Suddenly the man in black fires a beam of light from his hand and disintegrates the cop instantly. As the light passes through the man a dark orb becomes visible and floats in the air as its carrier vanishes.

The man in black looks at the orb and cocks his head to the side the way a dog does when it is curious. He walks up to the orb and gently picks it out of the air. He can feel all the souls he just killed in this orb and they are screaming at him, crying in pain.

=========================================================================================

Spades walks through Seireitei Park with a small smile and he comes upon the 3rd division barracks. He walks in and sees Toyoki, the old captain and Amaya, the new captain, talking about the color of paint on the wall. Spades being an ex-captain himself knows the pain of being stripped of his rank, its only out of pity and because he has powerful friends that he is even allowed to stay in the Gotei.

"-how its supposed to look, it needs to be less.... white." Amaya explains to Toyoki who looks completely lost.
"White is white Dee, I dont know how else to explain it." Toyoki replies with a confused tone.
"No, this is too white, I wanted a color less white. This white gets way too dirty way too fast."
"I dont get it..." Toyoki finally admits as he turns around and sees Spades. "Hey man, whats up?"
"Not a whole lot, just come to hang out, why are you looking at a white wall?" Spades asks confused.
"Well Toyo here decided that he would paint the wall white when I asked him to paint it Eggshell" Amaya explains in a frustrated tone with a sweet devilish smile.
"What is Eggshell?" Spades asks.
"Thats exactly what I asked! Finally someone understands that men dont get colors." Toyoki blurts out in a smile.
"For that matter what is Mauve?" Spades asks, clearly lost in his own thought. Suddenly a black butterfly floats into the room and lands on Amaya's shoulder.
"Sorry guys, I got to go, some asshole just killed off 3400 citizens of Karakura Town, commander is calling a meeting." Amaya states while walking out of the division. Spades looks at Toyoki and shrugs while turning around to walk outside.

Amaya enters the decimated area in record time. She came to view the damage for herself and what she sees shocks the hell out of her. She scans the area for survivors with eyes filled with deep sadness. Unfortunately none are to be found and the area surrounding ground zero seemed to have been evacuated already. It was a good thing. Hopefully no other souls would have to suffer now. She kneels and picks up a handful of sand, letting it slip through her fingers. "Such a waste for something so futile....." she thinks to herself. She sighs then stands, looking around again. Her comrades should be contacting her soon. She then speaks aloud to herself in the vast emptiness.

"And so it begins..."

*runs out of the tunnel and jumps straight out of the senkai gate onto ground zero. as she lands, she slips on a pile of sand and lands awkwardly on her back. sits up and looks around in some confusion* Hello, Dee taichou...where exactly is this? the last time i heard the incident happened in Karakura Town, not....in a desert... *understanding dawns on her as she takes in the tall, undamaged buildings surrounding them. she realises that this is what has happened to Karakura Town. her eyes harden, and she takes out a scroll of paper from her sleeve, unfurls it, and marked out the point of entry for Dee taichou, then rolls it up and hands it to her* Dee taichou, please keep this piece of paper with you at all times. it will pick up the traces of your reiatsu, and subsequently mark down the route and the places you go to in this zone. we will collect it back in Sereitei when you return. *so saying, she takes out another two scrolls and marks her own reiatsu on one. thinks silently to herself* there's been someone else here before Dee taichou. it's already fading, but... *a faint mark appears on the second scroll and she sets off following the faint trail of reiatsu left behind*

Toyoki eyed Spades when Dee left to investigate the incident, the momentary happiness that filled the office is rapidly fading away.

"We're really going through with this aren't we?"

He chuckled softly to himself. This is it. Now or never. Once he chooses to walk through this door, there is no turning back. Toyoki took a deep breath.

"Three-thousand four hundred... that's a lot of people." He said quietly, almost whispering the words.

Is this really the right thing to do? He thought to himself as he followed Spades out towards his own fate.

You find your destiny. When you do, I'll be waiting.

Amaya looks at Yuri and shakes her head sadly. She frowns as Yuri realizes where she's landed and remains quiet for the moment. She was still feeling the great sadness that weighed upon her heart at seeing the destruction of ground zero. Many thoughts raced through her mind but what she kept thinking of most was getting back to the Gotei to find Spades and Toyoki. Amaya reaches out for the scroll that Yuri hands her and nods, speaking quietly.

"Thank you Yuri-chan. I shall investigate the area a bit more then return with a report."

She then scans the area once more as Yuri sets off in her own direction before disappearing into a shunpo.

3400 is a little low for that area of town, last time I was there I think there must have been at least 10. Im just glad that the casualities wernt as high as they could have been.

Spades turns around and looks at his friend

What were doing isnt wrong, its called change, something every society goes through eventually, the Greeks, the Romans, the British, the Chinese, the Japanese, the Americans, even God and the Kingdom of Heaven went through a change.

Toyoki looked at his friend in the eyes.

"No change is worth any amount of death. No matter how big or how small. We're sinking in a pool of blood that will cry out for revenge. We will pay for these deaths in some way or form."

He looked away.

"However, sometimes great things require sacrifices. I will sacrifice myself if it means the greater good for the rest of Soul Society and the Material World. I only hope we are doing this for the greater good..."

Toyoki paused to himself. What was he saying? He remembers the last time he went through something like this and claimed it to be for the greater good. He begins to feel a sense of deja vu.

Regardless of the reasons the events have already been set in motion, there is nothing we can do about that now.

Spades looks at the clouds then back to Toyoki with eyes filled with sorrow. Spades knows that what Toyoki is saying is more true than any and he agrees fully with him but the old expression: "If you wanna make an omlette you gotta crack a few eggs" comes to mind. What a fucked up saying when referring to living souls. No matter if one person dies its never worth how many people live in the future, there is always another way, or at least that what Spades like to think. He wants to stay optimistic and the recent events arnt helping much.

Ive got an errand to run, you can come with me or stay here, your choice.

"I don't know...do you need my help with it?" Toyoki asked
Posted 8/28/10 , edited 8/28/10
Not really, just some dirty laundry that needs to be aired...

Spades states walking backwards then nods at his friend before turning around and walking normally.

Toyoki grinned.

"Nah just got about the gist of it from the land"

Hasan looks down and puts on a small grin

"Looks like a lot was done and i need samples, after all we need to know what did this in order to stop it from happening again"

Hasan gulps and cracks his neck

"after all its one of the few places worth protecting" he whispers to himself as waves the dust from his face "right?"

Well then, Toyo-kun, Hassan Taicho.

Spades nods at both of them signaling goodbye, then walks off into the distance.

"Hassan knows? No, he might have a suspicion but he cant have any true idea. Whatever, Im putting too much thought into this right now, especially since I was just reinstated as a captain, of the 8th division no less. Isnt that poetic? Finishing my career as a Shinigami in the same division that I started. Sendo would be proud, atleast I hope he would." Spades monologues in thought to himself as he walks.

=======================================================================================

In the Hucco Mundo forest, Cid, the old Second Espada, wanders about salty about the current situation regarding his status. Cid hears a rustle in the bushes and out of instinct he fires a cero in an attempt to kill whatever is in there, enemy or small animal. As the explosion ensues the man in black flies out of the bush and into a tree cracking it up the middle. The man in black stands up like nothing happened and takes a couple steps forward. Cid snears then continues walking.

Wait up! The man in black shouts as he runs to catch up with Cid.
What do you want traitor? I have no business with a man such as yourself. Cid replies as he walks.
Come on, that word hurts... Besides, I have something you want.... The key to the kingdom I promised you so long ago.
The only reason I was even talking to you was because you were the only one left alive in that hell the royal guard put us in aside from myself.
And isnt that reason enough to return the favor? Take it, I know you will put it to good use eventually.
What make you think I want anything to do with that? If anyone finds me with that, back to hell I go!
The only reason you would go back there is if the royal guards found that, its not like the Gotei has the strength to stop you.

Cid contemplates for a moment and as he is contemplating the man in black holds out a black orb. Cid can hear the screams and terror of the souls inside, trapped and tormented until they are given peace when the orb is used.

This is a little hollowish for you. I didnt think you were capable of this much destruction.
Have you decided? I can always give this to.... whats her name, the one who replaced you.

Cid decks the man in the face and sends him to the ground. THAT BITCH WILL NEVER HAVE THIS!! Cid snatches the orb out of the man's hand and turns around to walk off but he stops and asks a question. When am I to use this? Cid looks around and notices the man in black is gone.

Custodia watches the whole scene from afar. She begins to grin as the man in black disappears. She stays still, thinking for a moment before vanishing into a sonido then reappearing silently behind Cid. She leans close so as to whisper in his ear.

"Well, well well... What have we here? Cohorting with the enemy is grounds for treason Cid. Unless... you have something to otherwise contradict what I've just witnessed."

Meanwhile, Amaya has returned to the Seireitei from her escapade at the ground zero site. She's careful to keep her trail only in the most likely places she'd visit until she delivers the scroll Yuri had previously given her back to where it belonged. After, she begins actively seeking out Spades. She was furious and wanted to have a little chat with her new 'comrade'.
