His eyes stared off into the distance of the moonlit ocean. Tsubasa's presence was on land near one of the many beaches of Japan. He'd selected this place as a location to think quietly. Sadly the world decided to end people to mess with him and bother him. For some reason, Ibiki's exile had taken on its own little rumor mill. The ones around him were indeed Shinigami. And they weren't exactly saying nice things to him really. Confidence in the fact they couldn't be touched by him must have been nice. Tsubasa's brought his kiseru up as he ignored them entirely. Deciding their presence wasn't worth noting. They were mere bugs disturbing his thoughts as one would have them elsewhere. Though that seemed awfully egotistical. The question on his mind was did he intend to still help the Soul Society. Would he step in when they needed him even if Ibiki didn't want him too? She made it rather clear she didn't want to see him. He exhaled a large puff of smoke from his lips. This was an internal struggle indeed.

The Island was submerged for now and moving to a destination. Only select people could really get to the Unabara's City now. Tsubasa didn't bother giving people it's location or even telling them how to track it. A hidden Village of warriors didn't really make sense if the hidden part wasn't present. He could hear them getting more irrational and stupid as the time went on. Sake was on their breath, but these young kids didn't know how to handle their drink. Killing them over that would be excessive. Best to just let them work it out of their system, it wasn't like they could harm him. Though the clothing would need some fixing, after all, he guessed this was his stoning of sorts. Being attacked by five young shinigami. It wasn't like he knew for sure they worked for the Gotei or anything. It was a rather disheartening thing though, to be called a traitor. Or any such thing when he'd done so much for that place. His Clan had helped majorly buff and give the Gotei Lifeblood.

A familiar sound of blades exiting sheaths could be heard. Tsubasa leaned over setting his pipe down and gently pouring himself a cup of sake. This wasn't going anywhere really as he sat patiently awaiting their first strike. He focused his senses on them now sensing them as they moved. They weren't exactly subtle in their movements. They moved loudly and held their sword's with a weak grip. Though he guessed the excessive use of Sake didn't help. They moved poorly and had very poor footwork. As they came upon him, trying to attack him one at a time almost. It wasn't every single one attacking at the same time. This was, after all, their chance to prove themselves. Tsubasa decided to wait and see what happened. Did their blade connect with him and strike true as it moved. A couple drunks attempting to wound him, laughable at best. Their sword strikes couldn't kill a baby hollow. Let alone him, but it didn't really matter did it? They desire a reaction from him. They'd not get one no matter how they kicked and screamed. He'd simply enjoy the moonlit ocean view for now.

THE BLADE MAIDEN




MURASAKI KAGAYAKU




Why this little out of the way spot, of all places? Murasaki was always happy to see an old friend, though, and Mr. Unabara was arguably the friendliest friend she had. He was definitely the only one that she kept in anything resembling frequent touch with. So naturally, when she heard that he actually wanted to meet up, she just packed on up and went without so much as a second thought.

It was a little irritating to have to leave her current horse behind when she boarded the ship to Japan, but Murasaki liked traveling the way all the normal people down on Earth did. As she'd watched the sea all through the night, she reflected on her years in the academy, and in the time she'd spent with Mr. Unabara. By all accounts, he'd taken care of her when no one else really had, given her a home away from home, been as much a father to her as Kagayaku. She brushed a stray lock of verdant hair behind one ear, slightly annoyed it hadn't stayed in her ponytail, and returned her attentions to the waves for the rest of the trip. Best not to think about stuff like that.

Once she'd finally actually made it to the good old land of the rising sun (Son? No no, it was definitely sun), she got herself a new horse, which took way longer than Murasaki would have liked to, for the record, and rode off toward wherever it was that Mr. Unabara was supposed to be. She took her time, of course, because what was the point of going anywhere if you didn't take some time to see the sights? Stopping into all sorts of little towns or even wild spots, staying in tiny inns or big hotels or, most comforting of all, her cozy little yurt. That was the one place she felt most at home, no matter where she actually was.

Now, as for where she actually was at the moment? Well, she wasn't exactly sure, but it was definitely the place Mr. Unabara wanted her to meet him, and she could tell from the map she'd drawn. But she heard some other people around, and that didn't seem quite right. Loud people making all sorts of clashing sounds and stuff like that wasn't really what Murasaki remembered Mr. Unabara being into. So off she went, a green flash as she sprinted over with a hand on Keifu, and what did she find upon arrival but a band of ruffians accosting him? She quickly drew her blade in a single, effortless motion, not a bit of movement wasted and nearly as silent as a gentle breeze. What was not silent, though, was her then pointing Keifu at the hooligans and calling out to them in her most threatening voice, which really was surprisingly threatening.

“Hey, jerks, back off!”

No big speech, no flashy entrance or anything. That was hardly Murasaki's style, especially when someone close to her was in danger! She'd take them all on if she needed to, especially since they were just attacking him like that. The last thing she was going to allow on her watch was a friend being assaulted, even if it didn't really look...like...oh. Yeah, actually, it didn't really look like he was in any sort of dire straits at all. That made sense, actually, but, uh, she was still here, and she wasn't just going to leave now.

“Um, hi Mr. Unabara.”

That familiar voice almost like a kitten hissing as it was threatened. Tsubasa could only smile at his adoptive daughter's protectiveness. Between his lips was a pocky stick something his daughter enjoyed. Mint flavored was so far the one he enjoyed most. Humans had come a long way since their beginning. He watched her draw that blade fluid as the river's current. Her movement was good and clean, he smiled as he pulled the biscuit stick from his mouth. "Good to see you Mura-chan, I've missed my favorite daughter's presence." He said smiling as the men seemed to stumble a bit at him getting up and her arriving. As they turned their blades on her his expression changed slightly. This wasn't going to do at all, they couldn't be all pointing swords at his precious daughter. Adopted sure, but the parenting guide said an overprotective parent was a good one. The movement likely escaped the drunkards as he vanished with some rather impressive speed. Their reaction to his movement was far too slow.

He walked past them as they seemed to be moving in slow motion. "Ah, I can't let something as beautiful as Muza-chan's swordplay be wasted on you in such an inebriated state." He said finally as they caught up with where he was. Which was next to his daughter as he offered her a skewer with some meats on it. He knew her likes where he sat was a small fire. He'd been hunting and cooking food out here by himself. Some fish among other things seemed to linger there. In his free hand was plum sake his daughter's favorite thing. Unlike most Tsubasa did know what she enjoyed and did keep it well in mind. This brought up an issue of sorts as he didn't want to offend the Gotei worse. He looked at the plum sake for now. His eyes drifting over to them, they didn't seem to get the situation yet. Couldn't afford to really hurt them yet. So damaging them was out realistically speaking. So perhaps it was time for them to take a decent nap at the moment.


He walked towards them as an air flowed off him and their eyes began to roll upwards. It was a kido spell being used by him as he stood in front of their vision. It only worked on those weaker and the target's choice. It wasn't really worth using in battles or such things. "Besides, Mura-chan's not like me with a burning bridge between her and the Gotei." He said calmly as the men began falling over themselves. They'd become drunk previously, he'd simply increased it till they passed out. Focusing his kido directly in a point of direction towards them. He handed Murasaki her plum sake and a piece of finely cooked meat. He looked at her stance now taking it in as he rubbed his chin. It wasn't bad really per say but he sensed she could likely use a bit of help someday. Tsubasa didn't really have an heir so to speak of his swordplay brand. The style of Five Rings and beyond it to Kierudo and finding the next person. He could pass it on to her he guessed if she wanted it.

"You've improved a great deal Mura-chan, I wanted your opinion on something. Do you think I should help when the next battle begins between the Light and Darkness? Or should the gray remain out of it for a change." Darkness would turn to light and twilight would be born in its own way. He watched as the men seemed to fall and rest in the dirt snoring happily. Tsubasa's eyes remained soft and something kind about them. He had a weakness for those he called daughters. Murasaki, Saiko, Tsubaki, these were his kryptonite as it were. If Murasaki asked him to fight he would do so. No questions would be asked as he chewed on his pocky stick again. Murasaki had her own journey to think of really. But he did enjoy seeing her and it did his heart good. Perhaps these girls were the only glimpse of the true light he would see. Tsubasa was a man forever trapped within the darkness of slaughter and that world. Blood stained his hands far more than any being could realize.

But when he helped them he felt like his repenting was at least moving forward.

THE BLADE MAIDEN




MURASAKI KAGAYAKU




Was he still calling her Mura-chan?? There were people around!! Turning a faint shade of pink as a pout formed on her lips, Murasaki looked over the (former) assailants as they found themselves in a cozy enough slumber all at once. Well, at least that part of the problem was handled, but! She needed to address this issue!

Oh, wait, but were those meat skewers? And plum sake?? Ugh, he really did just know her too well. Only barely containing a faint squeal of delight as Tsubasa handed her the snacks, Murasaki gave him an energetic, but careful, hug. She didn't want to be dropping or spilling any of this, after all. Oh, and getting any of it on him would probably be bad too.

His question, though, kind of threw her for a loop, at least for a second, and she released him to sit down, take a large bite of the meat on a stick (how fun!), and enjoy at least half of the dish of sake in a single go. Once that was over and done with, she pointed the skewer at her dear friend, mentor, whatever you wanted to call him, and in a clear voice, told him as plainly as ever, “Of course you should help out, Mr. Unabara. Is that even a real question?”

Murasaki took another sip of her liquor (or was it a wine? It was kind of in between, wasn't it?) and gazed upward at the stars. They honestly never had too much appeal for her, too distant and unrelated to anything actually going on in life, but they were pretty in the right place and time. “Mom mentioned what happened. I'm not surprised that you're worried about getting involved in stuff and maybe stepping on some toes, but don'tcha think that staying out of it entirely might be worse? People might see that and just go, 'oh that Mr. Unabara, just sitting around doing nothing, letting people die.' You know what I mean?”

It was the most obvious thing in the world for Murasaki, and as usual, she didn't really see how anyone else could not come to the same conclusion. She finished off her delightful bamboo stick of meat and went for another, since who didn't enjoy these? As she did, though, she looked to Tsubasa, and gave him that always-genuine smile of hers. There wasn't anything superficial about it, no ulterior motives behind it, just a real smile from a girl who was happy to see him.

“Things are definitely a little rough right now, and I mean just with this and in general.” The last drops of sake were then drained from the dish, and she held it out toward Tsubasa with a toothy, almost childlike grin in a request for more. “But I think you've got this, ya know? You just need to play it smart! And you're totally good at that, I think.”

He merely listened looking above at the heavens for what they were. She was of course right just because he was in a different place. It didn't change the Unabara creed. No that wasn't quite right either, it had less to do with his clan. It was more about him, about Tsubasa himself. He couldn't really do things the same. Murasaki was as adorable as ever. Getting called that had turned her pink on him. He knew how to tease a daughter fairly well. He sipped from his sake as he glanced at the sleeping men. In a perfect world, they were back in the Gotei and away from him. He'd done something Ibiki couldn't forgive, but it wasn't about her or anything else. It was about understanding and growing beyond his limitations. Both personally and physically that hindered his capabilities. So what was the end goal of this strategy and preparation? Well not dying would be a good set of goals. Tsubasa's eyes remained on the sky before he closed them shrugging. "Guess I should get to finishing their progress."

He said smiling a bit as he considered finishing the training. His sister Mirja had an accident of sorts. She was certainly that way and it was about time to teach her something. The meaning of raw power and how to wield it. Henrex's last training exercise would be something easier. Mirja's would be like pulling teeth from a canine trying to bite your arm off. But he had strategies and plans in place for her. This wouldn't be a simple suffering for him or those around him. He needed to be careful how he moved from here on. "Mura-chan, what do you plan to do? " He said offering her his normal gaze as he took her in. She was always on his mind like most parents thought of kids. He knew he wasn't her real father but he did fill that role. If he was able to do it he made sure to accomplish that part to the best of his capability. Inami wanted him to kill and return to being the old him. That wasn't entirely true as he waited to listen to her.

Off the coast, she'd get to see it rising from the depths as a massive structure began to come out. It turned out to be an Island beneath the waves as he watched it come free. "Seem's you can see our humble Island now Mura-chan." He said glancing at the object made from toil and sweat. The Unabara Clan made an Island and he smiled having not named it yet. He'd yet to decide on a fitting name for the Vanishing Isle. It was something that sunk beneath the waves and hides beneath them. It was able to submerge and take no damage to structures or even effect those below. "They certainly like showing off, not that I can complain. Mura-chan is worth showing off too truthfully." He said grinning a bit as a small group gathered and began moving the sleeping men. They would see them back to the Gotei and inform them of their attempt. This would see them into the proper hands without harm. Tsubasa rubbed the back of his neck as he sighed softly. Such troublesome little ones they were in the long run.

It seemed like he and Byakko would be taking on enemies soon enough."So Mura-chan, want a free Sword lesson?' He said giving her an offer to test her skills out against him. He didn't bring out reishi or even use his reiatsu for this matter. It was a simple thing she could do if she desired too.

THE BLADE MAIDEN




MURASAKI KAGAYAKU




“What do I plan to do? Same thing I've been doing for the last while now, I guess. I wanna help people, keep 'em safe.” With conviction in her voice, Murasaki continued, “I'm gonna help the Gotei out officially, you know? I'm sure mom'll appreciate me actually being around and not just messing around down here, too.” She giggled at that, the thought of her mother doting on her as though she were still a young child more than enough to remind her of simpler times. “Plus, truth be told, I wanna be a Captain. I think I can do it, and it always seemed like something really worth aspiring to, ya know?”

As the island rose from the waves, Murasaki's eyes widened, and she nearly took a step back in surprise. What the heck was that? “Um, yeah, I guess that's definitely worth showing off- Wait a minute, what!?” The faint pink on her cheeks darkened to a rose red, and even as she smiled at the compliment, she made her best attempt to look angry with Tsubasa. “Mr. Unabara, don't say stuff like that, it's weird!” Ugh, it was so embarrassing! She could even hear Keifu and dad laughing at her in the back of her mind, which was just rude! Worth showing off? What did that even mean??

The way she saw it, she was hardly worth “showing off.” She was just a girl, ya know? Though she did have to admit she was pretty handy with a sword, if she did say so herself. But! That wasn't something to be showing off, it was just something that was to her. She'd been born this way, she knew that, and there was nothing about that to be proud of. Only be proud of stuff you've actually worked for, that's how she saw it.

“Huh?” Murasaki took a second to process what it was that Tsubasa'd actually said. Not because it was complicated or anything, mind you, she'd just kind of spaced out and ended up in her own little world for a second or two there. She did a quick little rewind of sorts in her head to go back over what he'd said to her, and nodded more to herself than to Tsubasa when she realized what it was that he'd actually said. “A sword lesson, huh? Yeah, I'm totally up for that!” With a smile, Murasaki stood and stretched out, setting her sake dish down and putting a hand on Keifu. After she gave her head a quick shake to make sure her ponytail was entirely out of the way, she turned to Tsubasa and gave him a big, dumb smile and a thumbs up.

“Alright! Ready when you are, Mr. Unabara!”

His eyes fixed on her as he stood there still and calm. Tsubasa didn't bother drawing a zanpakuto at the moment. He was fairly sure for her lesson one wouldn't be required really. His breathing calmed as he focused in on her. "I've named Shinsui the heir and will depart the clan shortly leaving the fate of them to him. But enough of that, attack me..freely Murasaki-chan. " He said his gaze fixing on her body and form as he focused. Tsubasa brought a single hand up as he controlled his energy carefully. No need to bring out anything massive for this lesson. It would be best to check his adopted daughter's form. Though he suspected she knew that Shinsui had been missing. Most figured him to be dead and beyond saving. But he knew his son's wayward spirit was just complicated. Henrex and the others would guide him on the path to leadership. Perhaps the first thing he'd do after offering his services to the Vanguard. If they turned him down would be to watch how things played out.

In this world, a law must be observed of equivalent exchange. For someone to get something, something of equal value must be given. That was, of course, the assassin's mindset often times breaching out into reality. The strange and unusual and perhaps beyond that would begin for the Unabara Clan. New blood was required for a new beginning to truly take shape. The old had to leave and truly let the new spread their wings. Perhaps he'd not be accepted in the Vanguard, but he did promise her a single battle. One battle where he'd turn up and turn the tide if need be. Tsubasa would make an appearance not when they wanted his strength. But only after they needed it alone, his job was no longer what most thought. He'd begun his life as an unaffiliated force for this world. It wasn't such a simple thing to give up what made him a person. Tsubasa, in essence, abandoned his last name only being Tsubasa. He was nameless beyond that as a person who merely existed beyond the stretched hands.

There were many things he could do and accomplish as a warrior. He'd only begun to change his outlook and truly see the world differently. No sides or strange beliefs in good and evil. The Balance and such weren't his concern at the moment. The only thing that mattered truly was the people in the middle. The ones who got caught in the wreckage and blasts going on. Those poor people required a shield or something akin to that. Those who saw only the crimson of war and carnage. They needed to stop the flow of blood from continuing. Perhaps he'd take to being a medic or something akin to that. Though he was more than capable of causing blood to spill. Not by a small margin but a large one on a grand scale. His blade had been sheathed and released by Inami at one point. The master of the blade who'd learned and lived by the sword. One day he suspected deeply that the blade would be his end. She could take in what he said, but the future of the Clan was in the future's hands. Tsubasa's hands and skills would be elsewhere.

They were reborn without the former Pale Rider, the man formerly known as Tsubasa Unabara.
