Takehiko had not once come to this place since his parents died. Slowly his feet took him this way. He had an idea for a Kido spell from his uncle's journal. Having gleaned something about the technique known as Shunko. His uncle could perform it which was a surprising thing to hear. Though learning details about how it worked was even more so. He had no daydreams about making a powerful technique as he sighed softly. "Akuma, things may get a bit shaky here in a bit..just hang with it brother."
He said softly as he walked across the platform his steps soft. He'd read about the move and thus thought to try it. But one thing concerned him about it as the move required a body able to perform it. So that meant that it didn't function the way Takehiko imagined. "What you got in mind kid? Something from that dusty old journal again?"
Akuma's voice was rough and yet held a strength to it. His voice came as he shook his head glancing down at his hand.
Takehiko found a place amidst the rubble and sat down as he explained. "No, I don't believe I can accurately perform that technique but I have an idea for a spell. It won't be complete until later I fear though given my prowess currently."
He said softly as Akuma blinked inside rubbing his chin as though clearly interested. Ruin herself sat observing she'd been happy with the progress thus far. Takehiko was making decent strides becoming his own person as of now. Focusing now he inhaled a breath using the Kata now. To use this was to relax for pain that was bound to come. Kido was energy and in that case, he was good at using it. Slowly he winced as a small white part rippled to life around his body. It hurt so much to do this as he focused intently on what he was doing. The pain wasn't a problem as he'd gotten used to pain. Then slowly white glow began to engulf his form but not akin to the journal. Nay he did not follow the traditional usage of Shunko. Takehiko was trying to create something different the problem was. He was way below what one would imagine for such a task.
His hands felt trembling down to the core and his bones ached with pain. The glow caused his clothing to ascend upwards before coming down as he lost it in moments. The spell was far from completed and would take longer to finish. Takehiko didn't have a name for such a thing but simply fell on his back wincing. "Akuma, you alright brother?"
He said sweat pouring down his body from just having it up for a moment. The technique at the moment did resemble Shunko in this fashion. But it wasn't that as was plain to see for those who looked. It was being birthed slowly as he waited for a response. He burned through his energy too quickly right now. He just couldn't do it on his own reality at the moment. But he wasn't alone was he really ever in this sense. As he felt himself drift into his inner world."Huh, strange way to burn yourself out, kid."
Akuma's way of saying he was fine was accepted with a smile and shrug. "Takehiko, that move you need a lot more powerful before you realize it."
Said Ruin from her perch observing him from the Darkness her eyes glimmering. She was very much correct as he knew that was the case as well. Presently he'd come here to try a few ideas for his kido spells. To make them stronger and better he had one final idea. Something about using kido without posture. That would be helpful but it would be indeed difficult as well. All kido held a stance and posture to them. That was just a given on how they formed and functioned. His eyes felt tired as he thought about. He had ideas but no energy or body yet to finish them. So he would do the next best thing and fire this kido himself. To keep growing stronger as he grinned a bit."Akuma, let's train brother and grow stronger as a duo."
He slowly sat up pulling from his pack a skull pill. Using this to replenish his lost energy supply now. This would be immensely useful in the training to come. "Oh, want to use my power huh? Alright, slugger knocks yourself out let's see what you got."
Takehiko grinned once his energy had been restored pulling down the mask. He tried to quickly use it as he felt the surge of power in his body. He still didn't have the power needed to train this long. So he quickly fired off five kido at that moment. Three Byakurai and two Sho,s managing to rapid fire them. Before falling back down laying there as he felt sweat hit the ground. His hand and knee are holding himself up. As long hair hung on his shoulders. "I...am open to suggestions here Akuma."
The hollow mused at him considering the usage rather wasteful. Since one big kido would be better than a bunch of small ones."Well, runt, it's plain to see you can't wield my powers for long yet. More of a trump card at the moment if anything. So why not fuse my power into one of that kido.
Takehiko had asked Akuma once before he'd gotten closer to him.
Swallowing he looked down as he remembered him from before. The one who tried to use people like tools. Akuma, his unknown Zanpakuto, he was disgusted with that person. "We don't have to do that Akuma, besides I'm not strong enough yet...That was something I selfishly demanded of you I couldn't dare ask for that."
The hollow let out a frustrated sigh before inhaling to scream almost. "Well I am demanding you use my powers better you stupid brat or I'll do it myself."
Takehiko's eyes went wide as he'd been threatened but he knew what Akuma wanted. He had time to wait this time around because as the day went by. He would be practicing something much harder in the days to follow. Combining Akuma's power with his kido, he trembled as he didn't want to upset Akuma with poor results.
