From the sheath to the tree, Kiba Ookami moved swiftly, with the grace of the creature it too it's namesake from. Standing behind the blade was a redheaded Shinigami, with an adjutant's armband featuring the symbol of the tulip, and the number two. He grimaced, and Daigoro Ito eventually stopped his assualt, breathing heavily... The tree simply stood, unmoving before him. But he wasn't done. He couldn't be spent already... Daigoro went onto one knee, breaths moving and pushing the grass beneath his feet. He closed his eyes, but he couldn't take it any longer... Collapsing onto the grass, with thoughts spreading throughout his mind.
Why did that take so much out of me...?
TIME SKIP - 30 Minutes Later
The redheaded Shinigami groaned, and sat back up. He looked around for any signs of life, and noticed that he may, in fact, not be alone. He wasn't completely sure... But he had to check it out. He stood up, and brushed himself off.
"Yo...! Anyone alive out there? I know you're out there... Just show yourself..."... Nothing. He blinked a couple of times, and turned back to the tree, flicking his zanpakuto out by his side - no words coming out of his mouth. No... That was a waste of time, and a waste of his own strength. He should just wait... Maybe practise throwing his bombs next... Yeah.
He reached into his uniform, and pulled out one small orb, throwing it into the cuts that he'd managed to etch into the tree's trunk. A second later, and the bomb exploded, sending splinters flying out to the ground, but still no movement of the tree. He smiled, and patted it softly.
"You serve your needs well, tree." His red eyes closed and his smile simply grew brighter, until he noticed a source of Reiatsu. Now he knew he wasn't just sensing random things... He rapidly turned around, and shouted out.
Lets play oh read haired one. I shall put out your flame.
Hinashi giggled as she sat at the top of the tree behind theyoung man. Smoke twisted above her head and in the sunlight it gave her head apinkish glow. The young man had just sensed her but he couldn't tell where."sighing softly to herself Hinashi stood up to her full height and madeher way down the tree. Her orange hair bounced with each step, pipe firmlygrasped in her mouth leaving a trail of cherry scented smoke behind her.Normally she would of been silent with her descent but being as it was mid afternoonshe was a bit tip-see. She finally landed behind the young man and walked over to where he stood. She stood up, her massive height towering over the young male.
"Looks like you have finally noticed me young shinigami." she said slowly. Took you awhile." Hinashi smile as she took a little stumble to the side but straightened up. "Now what are you up too little one. Training here. Trying to improve your skills." She tapped her pipe against a tree, emptying the ash and reached into her kimono to grab another pinch of tobacco. Filling her pipe, she stopped to light it, taking a brief puff before settling into her habit of making the area around her head swirl with the pinkish blue smoke.
Her zanpakuto was strapped firmly to her back, the length coming to a total of 4 feet. She reached back for the hilt, drawing the sword out slowly. "Before you looked intent on doing something when you noticed my reiatsu. What exactly was it?" Smoke drifted slowly from her mouth as she smiled and brushed a piece of hair from her head.A giggle escaped her lips slowly as she smiled softly.
"Looks like you have finally noticed me, young shinigami."
The redhead looked at the source of the voice - and the visage he now recognized as the source of the Reiatsu he had noticed as well. Big girl. One of her words struck him as strange, however.
"Young? Don't kid yourself." He laughed softly. "Believe me - my age far outstrips that of most Shinigami... I just don't look it yet." He grinned, and was about ready to resheath his zanpakuto, when she spoke once more.
"Before you looked intent on doing something when you noticed my reiatsu. What exactly was it?" The redhead blinked and sighed... His zanpakuto, no matter what it did, was nothing against usual attacks - so he may as well show it off... He flicked it by his side once more... and spoke.
"Hitokuchi, Kiba Ookami." As soon as he had spoken those words, the blade increased in length from one foot, to two feet...
"Just because your zanpakuto is... longer... than mine... Doesn't mean I can't do more damage." He grinned, and ran his hand down the blade, causing it to glow white-and-red.
"Seishou-Hakaisha. Blade form!" He swung the word through the tree that he had been attacking earlier, the force behind the cut now changing itself into a specialised beam of Reiatsu that cut through the tree like a hot knife through butter. A lie appeared on the trunk, and the tree slowly slid off and hit the ground.
"Now. Judging by your presence... Is it safe to assume that you are, in fact, a Lieutenant of some kind?" He tilted his head to the side, curious. It'd be interesting to get to know this woman.
Hinashi smiled as she gazed down on the one in front of her. She pulled a strand of hair away from her eyes as she slowly spun her zanpakuto. "Do not offended, I call most young in terms of height. To me you are all young since you are in fact shorter." Hinashi smiled. She had always been the taller one, even as a child. Her age was always lost in her height as most in her younger years put height to age. Hinashi stopped for a moment, almost dropping her pipe and her zanpakuto. She caught herself briefly and reached inside her kimono. How had she known that. Those memories had always been foggy. But that single memory had broken through. Always being call older than what she actually way. The names the kids use to call her. Reaching into her kimono she grabbed a small pouch made of silk. Reaching inside she pulled out a pinch of some bluish-purple material and put it in the end of her pipe. She lit it and puffed on it slowly as a purplish red smoke filled the air. The scent of plums was heavy as Hinashi's eyes glazed over. Tobacco soaked in plum wine, the alcohol carried through without being affected by the fire. A technique she had learned from years of blending.
Hinashi stopped once more but it was brief, a mere second or two before she focuses in on the man in front of her once more. She watched as the tree slid slowly off of its base and hit the ground. Pretty impressive for a attack. "Not bad, not bad at all." She said, stopping in front of the tree. "No, young one. My name is Hinashi Oro'nyaba, Vice-Captain of Division 1. Pleasure to meet you. You power is impressive, but there is more to fighting than sword play."
Slowly Hinashi started to spin her zanpakuto as she started a chant. " Mask of blood and flesh, all creation, flutter of wings, ye who bears the name of Man! On the wall of blue flame, inscribe am twin lotus. In the abyss of conflagration, wait at the far heavens." her zapakuto stopped spinning on the 7th spin, thrusting her zapakuto toward the tree two balls of blue fire formed in front of her "Tenran, Soren Sokatsui." A whirlwind erupted from the tip of her zanpakuto, catching the twin blue balls of fire. The tunnel of wind caught fire as it fanned the blue flames. It engulfed the tree and exploded around, incinerating everything for a few yards behind. "There is skill behind combining two kidou as well. A purple haze covered her body as she stepped toward the man before her. "Now what is your name."
"Heh. A bad misconception brought about by your own superior stature." The redhead smirked, and was about to reseal his zanpakuto, when she spoke once more.
"My name is Hinashi Oro'nyaba, Vice-Captain of Division 1. Pleasure to meet you. You power is impressive, but there is more to fighting than sword play."
He was about so introduce himself to her, when she completely drew her zanpakuto and spun it, chanting all the while... It wa unlike anythign he'd heard, in fact, it was almost as if she was... Double... His eyes narrowed, and she fired the kidou off. He reacted quickly - not wanting to be shown up by this girl. He ran his hand down his zanpakuto once more, and swung it in a wide arc at the kidou, firing a white-and-red, square-ended crescent at the flames.
"Seishou-Hakaisha... Crescent form." The crescent cut throught prt of the kidou, just as it hit the trees, causing a little bit of it to split away from the torndo and incinerate the ground behind it. He swung his zanpakuto aroudn behind his head and flicked it back into the sheath on is right hip.
"Skill in combining kidou is useless when your opponent has the means to split those bonds. I am the Lieutenant of the Second Division. Daigoro Ito - best you don't forget." He smiled softly, noticing that the smell of cherry was further aroun him than he thought. This girl... had a rather suffocating aura of scent about her... Must be that pipe of hers.
Hinashi swung her sword around slowly as she watched her kidou get cut in half, literatly watcher her kidou get cut in half by a cresent shapped blade of energy. "Skill in combining kidou is useless when your opponent has the means to split those bonds. I am the Lieutenant of the Second Division. Daigoro Ito - best you don't forget." Hinashi smiled as she walked toward the man. His zanpakuto was deadly, but all things can be beaten. Its just a matter of how to beat it. "Well Daigoro, spliting bonds is useful, but what if the attack has no bonds to split. Cascade my love." Hinashi's zanpakuto changed, the long blade splitting into two, the crystal ball dropping from the end into her hand. She let it slip past and grabbed the chain it was attached to. Water molicules in the air traveled silently into Dai's ear as she circled slowly. "What if your opponent attacks with sound. What will you do then."
THe crystal ball started to glow a light blue as Hinashi twirled the ball in her hand. "Echo." she muttered as the sound wave traveled to Dai's ear, the high pitch scream being transfered to his eardrum. It only lasted a second before she stopped it. It was painful, but enough to prove a point. "There are other ways of fighting where you don't even have to lay your hands on you opponent with sword play or Kidou."
"Heheh... You got me there..." The redhead smiled at the girl, and sudenly flicked his znapakuto back into it's sealed form, resheathing it quickly. He looked up and smiled brighter this time, and spoke.
"I hold Kiba Ookami. It is a zanpakuto... That has no killing potential. It has a blade, yes, but that is all. It's simplicity is defined by it's abilities. All it does is destroy and rebuild, nothing fancy. In fact, it's really rather weak, if you think about it. I couldn't kill you, even if I wanted to." He reached up and scratched behind his head, smiling properly, and scratching the back of his neck.
It was true - as powerful a defense Kiba Ookami was - it lacked offensive capabilities. Dai himself had no use of kidou... That was the one weakness he had - hopefully he'd be able to make up for it with this new glaive... He sighed, and lookedat the girl, tilting his head to the side slightly.
'So if someone was to attack you all you could do is defend. Tsk Tsk, I would expect more out of the Fuka'taicho of the 2nd division." Hinashi shook her finger as smoke rolled out of her mouth. I figured you would have a bit more to you but I guess I was wrong." She said with a smile. She sheathed her zanpakuto and stared at the man in front of her.
"I think a test is in order. If you ask why I will simply respond that I am trying to test your strength, try to run and i will chase you down. This is simply a bit of training, use whatever you wish to use, I will use my hands for now. Hinashi repacked her bowl before lighting it for the last time. He smile stretched across her face as she circled around slowly, her eyes wide and full of excitement. Purple wisps flash around her body, the scent of blood and water mixed into the smells of the forest and the scent of plum. As she continued to stare at her opponent, bits of smoke and random giggles escaping her mouth a gust of wind blew through the forest, causing her long hair to blow around. In a flash she was gone, already closing the distance between them in what seem to be long glides. Her image faded and reappeared in front of Dai.
"Tsuzuri Raiden" she said with a grin.
She struck with her foot first, slamming her left foot down on top of where his foot was resting and struck with her right hand the palm open and charged with electricity aiming for his chest. She then brought her knee up, aiming for his chin. With her height this feat would seem easy.
A... test? The redhead suddenly brought himself into a defensive pose, watching the girl begin to move. He wasn't expecting her to flash-step so early though, and as soon as she appeared in front of him and stamped on his foot, he realized with blinding annoyance that she was about to destroy him with her overbearing hand-to-hand. He tried to lean back, but it wasn't happening...
The knee hit him in the chin, and Dai flew back, being released from his oppression, and hit the ground hard. The redheaded Shinigami groaned, and sat up, rubbing his forehead, and wiping a little blood off of his chin. Cut after that? He was going soft... Dai slowly got to his feet, and looked up... In the eyes of the other Shinigami. She was damn tall... He was actually surprised that she'd only done that much damage to him.
Dai retook his footing, and proceeded to focus Reiatsu into his glaive, creating a small white-and-red targe shield on the back of his right hand. He wasn't planning on all-out attacking this girl, but he wouldn't not defend himself either. He wasn't going to let himself just lose... and his Glaive Seals would help him with that. They'd help him a lot...
He suddenly disappeared, and re-appeared in front of the girl with a grin.
"You're fast, I'll give you that." He suddenly disappeared once more, and re-appeared behind her, suddenly kneeling down slightly, and forcing his elbow into the small of her back.
HInashi smiled as Dai flew back from her final blow. Slowly she brought her knee down and removed her kimono throwing it on a nearby tree. A smirk crepted across her face like one would creep in the shadows. She eased back into her normal stance, slightly slouching. Smoke billowed around her face as she watched Dai slowly get to his feet. She watched as he wiped away the blood on his lip. A slight breeze rolled through the area as she stared at her opponent. So far she was impressed. He took a hell of a blow and was still standing. Slowly she started to move back and forth, throwing her long arm in front of her face every time. When Dai appeared in front of her she struck with her left foot coming into a full spin. When the expected strike didn't come she looked forward and saw that Dai had disappeared and reappeared where her back was a few seconds earlier.
He's fast." She thought as the elbow struck her side while she was in mid spin. She quickly pivoted on her foot while suffering a broken rib and tried to wrapped her arm around his. Locking her arm tightly around his she then rolled the opposite direction trying to throw him over her back and slam his against the ground. She would then release his arm and lock his arm and head in between her legs and grab his opposite arm and extend it across her upper body.
