Watching the Primera walk past and lead the way, she casually followed. As they moved down the hall and to his throne room, she eyed her surroundings. Even though she had been through these halls before, she had yet to actually pay it much attention. Upon entering the room, she witnessed his wish to rest. And took her place. Where she stood at the center before moving to the throne, sitting on the armrest.
Hannya Is it the mass of authority and power that makes the sovereign Primera, seek so much sleep?
She spoke ever so lightly as to not cause any distraction. As she entwined her fingers through her hair.

Unmoving from his position, he answered her.
I don't give a rat's ass about power and authority.
He said with a calm tone.
I sleep because it passes time.
Miguel recalls his time sleeping in the sands of Hueco Mundo, where time seemingly stood still.
I sleep because being awake take too much energy.
Miguel recalls the many times he was attacked and fought to defend himself.
I sleep because that's when I'm at peace.
Miguel closes his eyes momentarily, thinking of the calmness he feels when no one was to disturb him.
But in the long run, it doesn't matter.

She leaned back against the frame of the throne, raising her attention to hear the Primera. And as she listened, her mind became clear. Her fingers continued to move through her hair until reaching the mask, on her hip. She paused, emphasizing his words within her head as they seemed to echo. Pulling her hand away, she raised it to her forehead, eyes closing.
Hannya:........
Her lips parted yet remained silent. Forming words on the breath of her mind's ears. While quite easily she recalled the hardships and despair of her past life. She pressed her hand against her temple opening her eyes. Removing herself from his throne, stepping into a sonido and appearing at his side.
Hannya:I share my envy of you Primera. Though it is not for authority or power. It is your ability to locate peace in emptiness. Where the mind is free.
Quietly she looked aside as if gazing off into the distance.
Hannya:If even for a moment, peace can exist, it is worth it... Until we are freed of this emptiness or placed to eternal sleep.
Then she became silent as if giving him time to speak, but she had one more thing to say.
Hannya:In this place, we do not truly exist. And we pass by one another, as thus.....When you awaken, perhaps, a melody will allow you to rest with eyes open.

Miguel heard her, but her words were bouncing off of him like rubber. He heard but not listened to her truly. Hannya can call his sleep an ability to find peace but Miguel didn't see it more than just a way to not care about anything or anyone and save his energy. Miguel opened his eyes again, shifting them to Hannya's direction.
What do you want, Quinto?
He asked her.
We don't have these takes. We rarely talk at all.

The casual strength returned to her voice.
Hannya:And yet we are speaking as of now.
She looked down at him.
Hannya:Do you only remain here to avoid the bother of the outside world? It is more then clear that you care of nothing.

If is more than clear then shouldn't be obvious.
Miguel answered sarcastically as he switched hands and let his head rest on the other arm.
What happens out there does not concern me. There is no reason why I should sacrifice my sleep to bother myself with those of the outside world.

She sighed, easily understanding that this conversation was getting nowhere. Any amount of questions to seek deeper into whatever she sought would be futile.
Hannya:And the Espada that stand by you are nothing. How atrocious. Whether one be alive or dead, hell remains.
Taking care to not include "fellow" before Espada, she continued her words. And turned to excuse herself. There was nothing to be said, not here, not in Las Noches.

Miguel simply watched her make her leave. Simply if she had asked the right question in the right way, he might have opened up. But why bother. However, he still didn't get his answer.
You still didn't answer me, Quinto.
He said.
What do you want? Why do you remain here?
Miguel was unmoving still.
If Las Noches is that of a sad and empty place, then why stay. You, yourself don't seem to care about what happens to others.

She stopped, her head tilting back as if to better hear his question.
Hannya:I am searching for a reason to exist. Before I perish...
She exhaled, raising her hand and placing it beneath her hair, to her neck.
Hannya:Yet it seems as if we are all just drifting motionless.
Hannya paused, turning around to him.
Hannya:When we are condemned to our deaths, will you simply sleep, Primera?

A reason to exist before you perish...
He wondered on those words. Was there a reason why Miguel exists now, and if there is, he's not doing much to Miguel had to paused and think about that last question for a moment. He closed his eyes and looked to be sleeping. There was silence for a while until he opened his eyes again.
As myself, I would.
He spoke honestly. Miguel finally moved in his seat. He leaned back in his throne and placed both hands on the arms of the chair.
But as an Espada and the Primera, I can't let myself go without putting up a fight. I may be lazy but I'm not just going to sleep when that happens.
His face was hard yet calm. He knew that their existence would end some day, and Miguel himself know that he is likely to be killed by something or someone but when that happens. there was no way that Miguel wouldn't fight for himself. Being an Espada and Primera brought to him a certain sense of honour and pride, not so much to reflect in his personality but a sense of dignity.
Hopefully for you, you'd find your reason by then.

Hannya:I see, so then we mean something to the Espada Primera after all.
Looking up at the Primera seated in his throne, she smiled. She raised her hand and pointed to the center of her stomach. Where the missing piece of her was located.
Hannya:One can not find a reason to exist, if they are incomplete.
Her hand lowered.
Hannya:And I can think of no reason to place oneself through perils, that would otherwise, be unnecessary.
Shrugging, her hands raised slightly.
Hannya:It appears as if the great Primera may share a similar dilemma.

When Hannya pointed to her hollow hole, it reminded him of his own located where his bellybutton should be; it was hidden under his shirt. He smirked, the first time since the whole conversation. The smile made him look a little more handsome. He leaned forward, resting his elbows on his knees. He liked this one, this one didn't annoy him as much as the rest. That's not to say that he actually cares for her, however.
Then don't you think that your reason to exist, as currently incomplete, is to find the thing to makes you complete?
Miguel asked her.
...Logically thinking, that is.

Her expression changed, noticing the change of his complexion.
Hannya:... Yes I believe so.
Crossing her arms, she casually approached the throne.
Hannya: That is not to say, that upon locating this purpose, things will be any easier.
She took her seat at the side of his throne, placing some of her hair behind her ear.
Hannya:But then again, it will be worth it. No?
Hannya looked up at him.
Hannya:Has there ever been another time, that you can recall... that you've been awake this long?
She smiled.

His smile grew slightly larger, showing a little teeth. It did feel like he has been awake for long than usual.
No, I haven't been awake for this long in a long time. Not since I was a Vasto Lorde in Hueco Mundo.
Back then, Miguel would have been attacked by other hollows and then consume them which made him stay up for quiet a while before he had to move and go back to sleep. Miguel leaned back again and turned his head slightly to Hannya.
Could have something to do with the the 14-hour nap I took.
It was a possibility. Or that there was a certain someone keeping him up and not in an annoying, bothersome way.
But I might just go back to sleep after this.

Hannya:See, its not so bad, being awake. But..
She moved the length of her hair aside so she could sit up a bit more.
Hannya:I will not push my luck much further.
Hannya came to her feet, using the back of the throne to help her stand. When standing she looked to him.
Hannya:Perhaps another time, we can speak again.
