It was almost her birthday as it was the eve of November. It has been a long time since her father was killed and Hoshiko was trying to tend the church's decay on her own. Aside from concerned authorities, no one visit her church anymore. People are getting sick and her special tea can only cure so few of them. Hoshiko does not want to lose all these flowers for nothing and with the policemen coming to tell her to go home, it will make things even more complicated as the policemen are paid by DEPTH-Com so they can send in a scientist to experiment on the flowers and destroy them for little. Hoshiko is against such treatment and stays in the church with limited supply of food and water. The problem came along ten days after her uncle, Hideki called her and told her to stay away from the hospital because of the mysterious illness.

During that time, a police officer came to her church and politely asked her to leave the church and when he asked, a scientist appeared into the church and smirked at her. Hoshiko demanded for an explanation for this and the police officer was obligated by law to explain. He told her that she was spelunking the church and DEPTH-Com believed that these flowers will not be contaminated with her touch. Hoshiko was downright offended as she was the reason that these flowers existed to begin with and they believed she will destroy the flowers. So she defended her standing and temporarily kept them at bay, but it is unknown how long she can last before DEPTH-Com will get drastic. Daily, the police comes to her church and tried to reason Hoshiko to give up the church so they would not have to hurt a person that the town loves. Day by day, Hoshiko refuses to give up her church and passively shown her protest as DEPTH-Com is bad for the flowers.

Luckily, she was saintly calm when protesting, so DEPTH-Com and the authorities did not have any ammo to use against her. So for now, Hoshiko was found on her knees and praying to the soul irises while displaying a faint spiritual pressure doing so. The aura was too faint to be seen blatantly, but can be seen as a glow that is mistaken for a youthful radiance reflecting the sunlight with her pale skin. Her eyes are closed as she mentally recite the prayers that Father Yamamoto taught her. With the sunlight, the ruined church looks ominously serene with the grass and flowers breaking through the floor of the church. Because of last night's rain, the flowers are glittering with remaining raindrops. Despite the cold air, Hoshiko never shivered from afar, but her breaths are stuttering with the chill. She definitely has been around for sometime as there are not heating other than the candles and the fireplace not so far from her left.
There was a deep creaking of the big mahogany doors echoing across the grand hall of the church. Hoshiko raised her submissive head and smoothly opened her eyes in expectation. Her green eyes glistened with its bathing in the sunlight as she heard a familiar voice. "Minatumi, Hoshiko. This has been going for ten days. I know that people are supporting you, but this has to stop. DEPTH-Com believed a cure can be found here and you are in the way." The policeman spoke to Hoshiko from the doorway. Hoshiko frowned as she looked up into the hole that produced the sunlight. She stood up slowly and turned to the policeman; unarmed and outgunned, yet fearless. "They are right that the cure is here, but these are beautiful flowers and their sterile hands will kill them before they get to the lab. I alone can tend to them because I know how to treat them properly." Hoshiko calmly protested.

Her eyes relaxed and her head lowered back down while her voice is clear. The policeman walked up to her as she turned around to resume her prayers. At first, the policeman was tempted to haul her in for resisting, but then he thinks that there is no need as there is no arrest against her. Even the warrant will not be permitted as Hoshiko did nothing to warrant an arrest. Even if DEPTH-Com tried to pay for the church. Hoshiko stood and told their ambassadors that the church is never on sale as she has the deed and she plans not to sell it. The policeman heard from other officers that one time the ambassador was dragged out of the church by two officers because the ambassador tried to threaten her for the deed. It is only a matter of time before this situation would get out of hand and the officers will not be able to help Hoshiko from there.

Knowing that it has been ten days that the police officers would come to convince her to leave. The reality is that the church is not really decaying to the point of being dangerous and the police does not have any reason to drag her out unless they want an unwanted protest by those who are indebted to her. But the feeling that eventually, things will come down to violence never cross her mind as she was still praying for the flowers and the ill-fated. The police officer walks to her side and kneels before the flowers as he too believes that praying to the flowers like a shrine can make things easier for his now uneasy family. Hoshiko understands that fear as she knows the officer well and met his family before. He has a wife and two little girls and a newborn boy. Although his father passed away because of the mysterious illness, the police officer and his family are still healthy and the police officer wants to keep it that way.

"What has come to this town and for what?" The police officer quietly asks himself, confused about why he is one of those who are harassing an innocent caretaker of the church and a major corporation was trying to invade the church by legal ways. "Hoshiko, are you not aware of how far the pursuers are willing to go?" The police officer asks Hoshiko. "I am not aware. As along I remain passive and adamant, I can keep them at bay. I ask the chief to give you a vacation away from this town. There, no illness will hurt you or your family." Hoshiko responds, knowing that the chief trusts her not to scheme something. "Thank you, Hoshiko." The police officer speaks before leaving. He leaves the church quickly, wanting to get permission from his chief and get out of town before the mysterious illness could reach his family and leaving Hoshiko behind to keep DEPTH-Com from prosecuting him for neglecting his duties.

Once again, she is alone, tending to the flowers and her health while fending off DEPTH-Com's attempts to take the church away from her and destroy the flowers in their twisted and demanding experiments. Hoshiko looks at the flowers with a good feeling to the heart. Such rare flowers that she was left to tend to from Father Yamamoto. Soul irises glowed with either sunlight and moonlight alike and even in the midst of darkness, they shine like torches to the souls who are lost and the death gods could not find them. She stood up as she was going to get herself some food to keep her strength from fading away. She walked around the flowers and into the backroom, where she lives in and the only way upstairs into the rafters above. She looked through a box where she stores her preserved food. Rice and some fish strips will do for now as she collects her pot and salt water.

She returns to the grand hall and starts a fire in the fireplace and hangs the pot over the fire so the rice can be cooked with the fish. Due to her limited supply, she has to keep her meals to a minimal and the church does not provide any electricity, so fire, sunlight and moonlight are her means of lighting. Along the line, she has no access to computers, wireless technology and other forms that are very common these days. Her only means of entertainment will be talking to visitors, tending to the flowers and reading a children novel like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl and The Wizard of Oz. As evident, she has limited intellect and thus limited awareness of the world outside her town. With the illness going around and DEPTH-Com hounding down upon her for the flowers, she cannot go outside her town, even though she wishes that much.

She watches the fire cook her lunch in a pot, thinking of how she could visit the world as it was said in the children novel she read before going to bed. Perhaps she can be lucky enough to see a story unfold before her eyes without her having to close her eyes. Sadly, her dreams are only dreams and she feels that the flowers needs her to keep them safe. She knows the flowers can live on their own, but leaving them will let DEPTH-Com come after them and abuse them. That is what Hoshiko could not live with. She needs a sign that she can tell that her problems will be solved soon or someone to come to the door and tell her that DEPTH-Com will no longer harass her or go after her flowers. She walks to the closest pew from the fireplace and sits there, waiting for the lunch to finish boiling. When cooking, she has an excellent focus due to her limited supplies being so scarce for her.

{ LET IT COMMENCE }


:~Nacora|Sugiura :~
=============================================

=============================================
- Let The Flames Turn Everything To Ash... Then Rebirth Will Occur -

It was so real and vivid, that dream that he had the night before. It all started off with him appearing on a platform and from their he could see the universe in full view. At this point Nacora couldn't really believe that he could dream something so real. In fact he hadn't dreamed in a very long time so just dreaming was a feat he was amazed by. From there the platform had floated down to Japan, the world that he had known. All the while Nacora looked around in amazement, Only to be brought away from Karakura town to some place he's never been too. It was fair and bright looked very warming, but the platform never stopped there it continued to drag him along until he reached what looked like a run down church.

Nacora stared at the church with more interest in why he was brought here, than where he was. The doors were large a little worn down but still it held the brilliance of an christian roman church would have. Entering the church he begin to notice the inside looked just as rough as the outside, but it looked like someone was actually taking care of it. The floors looked rather clean and though you would expect a mess everywhere, their was none. The Sugiura looked straight ahead down the isle and his eyes were caught by the appearance of a vibrant looking woman. From that stand point the only real trait he could notice was her long hair but he could tell something about her was special. He had a special interest in this woman right than and there. All he wanted was to see her face, and like a shining star the platform slowly begin to move him around to her face, granting his wish. In suddenly what seemed like a dream had begun to seem like reality as she turned to look him in his eyes. Her shining emeralds met with his sapphires, he was sure that this was more than a dream. It was a guiding path or something.

As she leaves he finds himself smiling just from seeing the girl. But than the area became dark and in a flash he found himself underwater looking closely at the emergence of something huge, something powerful, something immense , and something familiar. Raising out the ocean he could feel it's rush to the surface, his hair flowing towards the surface as did the creature " Libra.." Silently those words left his lips and he found himself over Karakura town again. Looking down he notice the emergence of the powerful beast. Libra... a Sacred so strong that legends were told of how it could destroy the Sugiura easily if it so wished. But why? Why was it here in Karakura, why show up now. Libra made it way above and his mouth begin to glow brilliantly. Nacora couldn't take it his need to protect Karakura had shown through as he begin to panic. He was all but sure that Libra would destroy the town with one single blast, but than as he continued to watch, a untainted, pure light begin to engulf Karakura as if by the will of the city to protect itself. As he watched on Libra had unleashed it's blast on the town but unfortunately he had awakened before he could see the outcome.

His closed eyes open as he looked over towards the church he had searched for. Now he had realized that the dream wasn't some guiding star, it was an omen to the challenges that was awaiting him and the only thing he could think of was finding that girl. She had to of been an important key to ending this for her to leave such an impression in that dream. Looking at the Church it resembled all that the dream had shown, well almost except for the, what looked to be guards all around it. Nacora wore a scarf around remembering the slight breeze in the dream, his blonde hair swayed from side to side as he approached the looming church " I hope this is where she is. It took me while to reach this place." He said before being subjected to questioning by the guards. Personally Nacora didn't have any business there besides the woman. So he expected them to let him in , unfortunate for them they didn't. From inside the church the woman would hear a slight uproar from outside, followed by several grunts from the man out side.

The large church doors begin to creep open as he dropped one of the guards down. He was out cold but he wasn't dead or anything. Looking up he noticed the sweet scent that followed his entrance. Food maybe ? yea he could smell that, but the scent was that of the woman cooking the food. His eyes met her emeralds and once again he felt that feeling of intense pressure on his shoulders, it was like an ocean fell on his body. Looking at her, he placed his Rukjen in it's side holster " Hey, You wouldn't be the one taking care of this place would you ?" He smiled gently at her before beginning his walk over.

Hoshiko was unaware of the guards outside as she spent most of her time inside the church, but something was wrong when her supply was getting less bountiful than before. She even lacks the yen to get by since DEPTH-Com put her into the defensive for the flowers. Outside of her awareness, she was trapped in a standoff and DEPTH-Com would be winning with police officers blockading the place through bribery. As she is cooking her rice and fish, she could only hear the crackling and the snapping of the fireplace as something else was going on outside. When Nacora came to the church, the guards are merely police officers keeping the public from getting on DEPTH-Com's bad side, but since Nacora chose to fight them, the police officers are not happy with that and one of them calls in back-up. However, the police officer was shocked about something.
The heavy mahogany doors' creaking awakes Hoshiko from her deep concentration as her lunch was ready. Judging by the size of the pot, the lunch was only made for one person alone, so splitting the meal would be making the meal insufficient for the healthy lifestyle. Hoshiko removed the pot from the fireplace and placed it on a piece of cloth to protect the pew from the hot pot. She then looked at who was at the door. Since Nacora is a sugiura and a spirit, Hoshiko can only see a police officer dragging himself into the church and falls over. Hoshiko rushes over to the police officer and kneels by his side to check on him. Her face was clearly in shock as she can tell that the police officer was knocked out, but these bruises, where did they come from? Since she cannot hear Nacora due to him being a spirit, she struggles to drag the officer over to where the sunlight can warm him up, but her lack of strength makes the attempt futile.

She looks around to find someone to help her get him inside so she can treat his unconsciousness. Beyond the open doors, she notices that two more officers are injured as well. She rushes over to the officer who called in backup and struggles to pick him up. The officer looks at Hoshiko with a smile, knowing that Hoshiko was not the one who called in Nacora. He stands up to help Hoshiko take him inside. "What happened, sir?" Hoshiko asks. "A spirit attacked us. I am glad that you are safe. But we must get these two inside. TARN is coming." The police officer alerts Hoshiko. The two separate from each other and begin assisting each other. It is common knowledge to humans that TARN are soldiers of DEPTH-Com primarily deployed for retrieval or neutralization of traitors. After Hoshiko and the three officers are inside, Hoshiko pushes the doors shut, setting up a basic alarm system for her and the officers to listen for.

The officer places the other two onto two different pews on the left side, letting the fireplace warm them up as Hoshiko moves the pot onto another pew. "Have first aid, sir?" Hoshiko asks the officer as she examines the injuries. "Yes. Just bandages in case of on duty wounds." The officer answers as he grasps his right side. "You did well to send the rookie away with his family. However, with TARN on the way, I don't see any other way to stop them now." The officer speaks to Hoshiko. "They will be trying to scare me away or kill me. Will they?" Hoshiko asks with the assumption in her head that DEPTH-Com will be doing something drastic. "We will not allow that. We're here to protect the innocents and we will stay to give you time to escape." The officer pledges to Hoshiko, which reveals to Nacora what they are really intending to do. "I cannot leave...the flowers...I-I-" Hoshiko replies adamantly with mild nerves of helplessness.

"Then we pray that the flowers will grow back someday. For now, you have to get out of here and letting TARN kill you will make us failures as officers." The officer replies to Hoshiko equally as adamant. Hoshiko looks at the doors and frowns. "I'll do what I can to treat your injuries. After that, I'll leave." Hoshiko vows to the officer before walking to the backroom to collect three cups, a kettle of water and a small pair of scissors. She returns to the officers and places the kettle over the fireplace to heat the water. She then walks over to the garden. She cuts an iris with the scissors and gently holds it in her left hand. She walks to the backroom and starts grinding the iris with the mortar and pestle sitting on her dresser. She returns to the kettle with the ground-up iris and pours them into the kettle. "Soul Iris tea is what can help the people fight the illness that plagues this town, but I do not have enough to cure them all. It will help you and your friends recover from your injuries." Hoshiko explains to the officer.

- Let The Flames Turn Everything To Ash... Then Rebirth Will Occur -

His words were responded with no reaction, which he found weird but because of her sudden rush towards him he assumed she had heard him. Nacora smiled slightly thinking that she had somehow had a dream too and for some reason would be happy to finally meet him but he was wrong. The woman had ran pass him and begin to tend to the wounds of the officers he had just beaten. Unaware of the situation Nacora, simply stood aside and besides trying to reach out to her a couple more times, he simply listened to them speak. The boy found himself sitting on one of the old benches as the officers spoke to Hoshiko, atleast that what the officer had spoke when referring to her. Nacora felt like an idiot calling out to her, just because she held some meaning in his dream, he assumed she would have some spiritual power or ability. But she couldn't even see spirits. How unfortunate he thought as he moped on the bench. Not to mention that the people he had beaten up was actually trying to help her, so on top of being an idiot he had also felt like a douche bag " Some way to introduce yourself Nacora."

His blue eyes had looked over towards the police that was talking the most, he seemed to have a grasp of the situation. Depth Com seemed to be the real enemies and while he assumed that the police were, he was never one to go without saying sorry. Though now wasn't the time, he would say it eventually. The conversation was seriously taking a turn for the worst when the word TARN showed up " TARN ? " Nacora thought. It was like the quick kill section of DEPTH COM or so it sounded and they were heading here. Why ? Nacora had no idea, but he did owe the police officers an apology and lets not forget the whole reason he had came...Hoshiko. He waited for the right time to approach the police officer weather or not he could see, hear, or feel him this much would be said " Listen.. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding but to pay you guys back. I'll try to take care of TARN and after that if she let's me.. Hoshiko." His voice, sincere and reassuring it obvious he was trying to apologize.

It wasn't long before Hoshiko had returned with cups inhand with that knowing that she couldn't see him. Nacora had walked over by the door, TARN hadn't showed it face yet and Hoshiko didn't need another scare by him opening the doors. It was hard for Nacora to explain exactly how he felt about Hoshiko. He had only met her in a dream but he was positive she had some connection to it. Besides who has dreams about people that they never knew existed in the first place or visits a city that they had no prior clue where it was. Nacora shook his head at his own frustration. Looking down towards the radiant flowers from afar. This mission; if it could be call that had already went so wrong but maybe he could fix it with the right attitude and actions. The boy's boot would creak on the floor as he waited for TARN to arrive. He had no idea of the forces strengths, all he could promise was that he would hold them back until Hoshiko got away. If he could he'd also make sure the cops didn't get hurt. For some reason though it all looked unlikely, he had delivered some pretty bad injuries to them. Well he owed them that much, they would see their families before tonight was over with. That much he would make sure.

Hoshiko checks the other officers and each she gives a cup of tea prepared for their recovery. The two officers are set to their seated position by their only able-bodied officer. "It may taste like seaweed, but it will help you heal quickly. I fear if I don't do something about your injuries, you two would not survive when they come." Hoshiko speaks to the two officers as she gives the third to the standing officer. "Miss Minatumi. I know that you cannot see spirits, but I can. He is the one who attacked us, but he is sorry." The standing officer speaks on cue with the floor creaking. "I am sure he is because he is here to protect me." Hoshiko replies to the standing officer, catching him off-guard a bit. "How did you know? I know you cannot see, hear or feel spirits like a few officers can. I used to be a TARN myself, but I was discharged." The standing officer notes Hoshiko's intuition interrogatively.

"I can only tell by an informed guess. I do not care if you are a TARN, I only care if you chose the path you wanted." Hoshiko answers the standing officer. The standing officer looks at Hoshiko and frowns like he knows there will be no turning back if the TARN does come for her. Hoshiko looks out at the doors that she closed earlier. After a while, she looks back at the officers whom she is caring for. Suddenly, she remembers her lunch and walks back to the hot pot of rice and fish, but discovers it is now cool. She frowns and hangs the pot over the fire to reheat it. The standing officer looks at Hoshiko and seems to be focused on her for some time. "Hoshiko. You think TARN governs the police here?" The standing officer asks. "Que?" Hoshiko utters as she quickly turns her attention from the hot pot to the standing officer. It is clear in her face that she is confused by the question.

Her eyes are wide open and her mouth ajar with a daze lingering in her tone when she asks the standing officer a simple question that is clearly either why and what. The standing officer walks over to Hoshiko with a sigh. "From what I've heard, DEPTH-Com began taking over this town and was pressuring the mayor into allowing TARN be stationed in the town as an act of quarantine and martial law." The standing officer informs Hoshiko as it was all new to her. "Quarantine? Martial Law? Was that legal?" Hoshiko asks the standing officer before the standing officer hands the empty cup to Hoshiko. "Quarantine is when the government isolate the area for the safety of the society around that area. Martial law is when the military takes over the piece of society. DEPTH-Com is only a pharmaceutical company..." The standing officer introduces.

"But thanks to political connections and games, they became the power of the government and the military due to their recent expansions; Arsenals." The standing officer explains. "So yes, they are pulling enough strings to make a cut-purse look innocent." The standing officer concludes. Hoshiko looks at the standing officer...then tilts her head to the side in more confusion. The standing officer turns on heel and applies the palm of his right hand over his face, disbelieving the girl's uneducated mind. He turns back to Hoshiko and finds her eating her lunch. "Are you even aware that I could be a threat?" The standing officer asks Hoshiko, reminding her that he is an ex-TARN soldier. "I don't mind as along you do not intend to hurt me or the flowers." Hoshiko calmly replies with a carefree, cheerful tone like she forgets most of the things that are explained to her before.

The officer's face is of a gamer frustrated over a space marine game because of trolls spawn camping him. "Fu-" The standing officer was about to cuss before Hoshiko interrupts him with a poke to the forehead. "What was that for, Miss Minatumi?" The standing officer asks irritably. "You look mad." Hoshiko answers while innocently looking at him with right fingers over her mouth, muffling a giggle. "You're sixteen...start acting like one." The standing officer criticizes Hoshiko's effort to charm. "Thanks for the compliment, I am acting my own age, just I chose to act this way." Hoshiko remarks the criticism while looking cheery as if her flame of innocence could never be doused at this point. The standing officer bleats out of frustration and walks away to tend to his downed men. As it reveals, Hoshiko really is an optimist as she counters the insult without an insult.

{ LET IT COMMENCE }


:~Nacora|Sugiura :~
=============================================

=============================================
- Let The Flames Turn Everything To Ash... Then Rebirth Will Occur -

Nacora stood with his legs crossing on one another while he leaned on the door. He was supposedly waiting for this TARN group to arrive but he couldn't help but feel it would be a while. His eyes constantly scouring between the three officers, feeling, well you could say rather guilty for putting them in the state they were in. The Sugiura male simply shook his head in shame and almost comically begin to beat himself up in the corner near the door. But than he heard the only standing police officer explain to her what he had told him. The boy paused in mid position of pulling his hair out " So he did hear me after all. That's good to know." letting out a small smirk as if to show the happiness coming from this understanding.

While listening he heard Hoshiko explain that his reasons here was to protect her. First off; how would she of known that if she couldn't hear, see, or even sense spirits. Than again maybe she could sense his will or maybe his motives. He didn't know but it was good to know that she knew he was here to protect her. His gaze on her was warm , she knew and that was all that he cared for. But he felt bad, he had now made it his main objective to protect her. If it came down to it, he would have to leave these guys to die to protect her, hopefully he would be able to do both. Leaning off the giant doors he took a sit at the furthers bench, keeping sure to stay near the doors. It was interesting to hear what the humans had to say and to find more out about Hoshiko. Maybe she would be more fun than he had originally thought.

Continuing to listen he begin to notice just how simple she was. She didn't care for the potential threat of the officer being a TARN agent. All she really cared for was the flowers, why ? well that was still unknown. Nacora kept his eyes on the two talking, his arms swinging between his legs like a kid watching simple cartoons. He was glued to the conversation. Truthfully her child like manner and simple yet strong ideals reminded Nacora alot of Loule. Even though, the thought of him and her ever being together again was crushed. He constantly thought about her, till this very day, he still checks on her from time to time, hoping one day she'd regain her memories. From that one thought his eyes sunk a little as if feeling a pain once forgotten, the sounds around him blurred into jumbled up humming. Things would be different this time, he's protecting someone and he's stronger than before. So no one will have to be hurt for his weakness. No one! Not Hoshiko, not the officers, not the world. He'd protect it all if he had too. Alone with his blazing fist, he'd burn everything and anything that threatens the peace. Or so that's how he felt, now how things would actually go was an completely different story. As he begin to regain his state of place, his lips would move ever so slowly " Never again.." it was quite, yet those words held so much of his resolve and determination.

He looked back up at the two and caught Hoshiko poking the officer in the head. It was nice to watch; like watching someone so strong that they were willing to bear the sins of the world on their shoulders. That girl may not be educated but she knows more of the world than the adults around her. Nacora laughed and smiled warmly, loud enough that the officers around would hear him " She's one stubborn girl isn't she. Well than I guess that makes me this stubborn girl's body guard huh ? Make sure she knows this will ya. My names Nacora and it's a pleasure to meet you..Hoshiko." He said this while standing from the benches and loosing his scarf around his neck. This adventure would soon flesh itself out an unbelievable ways. This girl in-front of him with her long brown hair and emerald green eyes, would be the main character. That just meant it was his responsibility to find his role in this whole thing. Even if it was something simple like guiding her or something important like protecting her. He'd do it. That was all he really knew..he'd do it.

Subject Post 8PostSubject: Re: {Prelude} The Soul Iris Church: The Flower Girl's Troubles   Mon Nov 07, 2011 6:04 pm



Zen had had a very odd dream, odder than those that he has some times. This dream was extremely vivid. He had dreamed of a giant thing threatening to destroy the city but some sort of barrier protected it, and that something was releated to a church and a girl. But Zen was confused by it. The girl in his dream just looked like a regular human, yet the barrier that protected the city in his dream and her had very similar musical feels if not the exact same. How was this possible he had thought, there was no way that she could have been a normal human if that barrier was somehow connected to her, whether she had created her or not she was connected to it somehow and that was concerning for him. The church itself was of no particular importance to Zen during the dream but those flowers, they seemed so familiar. After the dream he had called Hoshi to ask about the flowers in his dream. Hoshi had told Zen that the flowers that fit the description of small, golden, glowing iris like flowers were Soul Iris' and that they had some spiritual energy, but that they were extremely rare and very hard to grow, so hard infact that Hoshi had only ever read about them and that book didnt even had a picture of them. After hearing this Zen started thinking that this girl could not have been normal at all if she could take care of those special flowers, if not even Hoshi could grow them that means that those flowers must be very important for some reason.

Zen had taken time off from his third seat duties to investigate if that dream had any actual basis. He had asked around Karakura town to see if anyone knew about an old decaying church in the area. An old man had told him about a church in Minatumi Harbour, the last seafaring town in all of Japan. Zen had decided to pay this town a visit. He didnt know how people felt about spiritual beings in this town but he left his shinigami clothes at home but people would still see him since he was stuck in his faulty gigai. To get there he just used the easy way and just shunpo'd to MInatumi Harbour,

As he walked into town he didnt know where the church was so it seemed only logical to ask a police officer where the church was located. He saw that alot of the officers were young and not to mention hot so he proced to one of them and asked "Excuse me sir, Do you know where the church is?" The officer replied "Its over there but why would you want to go there we are trying to get a girl to leave it but she just wont leave." as he then left. That made Zen think, could that girl had been the same one from his dream? The one that appeared to protect the entire city from certain doom? There was only one way to prove if this dream was real, go to the church and see if the girl inside has that same musical feel than the one in his dream. With that ultimatum he started walking toward the church.

He followed the alley's until he got to the church. There is was just like in his dream. A giant church, slightly broken but it looked like someone was taking care of it. And then he felt it, that musical feel from the dream. The girl from the dream must have been in there and that meant that this dream was real, something bad was going to happen. Some would say that it could just have been pure coincidence that someone exists that has that similar musical feel to them, but those people would be wrong. Things that are connected to each other share the exact same music to them and Zen knew this from experience since it is his element. Deciding that the dream was real he really had no option but to complete his missive and figure out exactly what this dream thing is all about.

Zen kept walking forward but avoided going into the church directly and shunpo'ed to a nearby roof and walked on air to the giant gaping hole in the Churches roof. He stood next to the hole looked down inspecting the scene below. And there she was the girl from the dream and her music ambiance. Even the ambiance felt like it didnt belonged to the girl it felt like there was something much bigger about her something special. But she wasnt the only one there Zen could feel someone else there, someone very..... old and powerful. Whoever it was he or she was more powerful than Zen and he didnt want any trouble so Zen just decided to chill out there on the roof, coming to the conclusion that if he just fell out of the sky and landed on the soul irises something horrible could happen to him, he could be fed to that giant thing in the dream he had since it apparently exists.

Zane, The Stone Cross Commander

The Dream he had one faithful night awaken him from his slumber instantly from all that he saw within it. it distrubed him as he saw a demon rise out of the water and destroy all of karakura or at least attempt it. The normal k-worlder would gladly accept the dream and sleep peacefully into the night like him. But he felt a feeling that all those innocents didn't need to die like that. A entire city holding millions upon millions of people, left in ruins like it was nothing but at the end of the dream a protection was over the city and was trying to stop the attack he couldn't tell if it work or not and that left him wondering why did he even have this dream in the first place. He had return from his ttack on Atarashii and even then he had tried to be on peaceful terms with the innocent but that dammed Vizard and his allies arrived and resorted to him destroying the village in a battle. He tries to forget it now even through the battle was sucessful to him, he was alie and well enough to be able to live his normal life and that was a thing that truely mattered in his mind.
The dream through made him take off and leave his Vice Commander incharge as he raced from k-world to earth and he had researched the town in his dream to see if it even existed but he couldn't find any files of the church probably because it had nothing that interested k-world right now. But the town was in Japan like Karakura but it is known as Minatumi Harbor obviously it was near the ocean and one of the last cities to have boats that fished or anything really. With his organge box he opened a portal in the ocean and jumped right in as it was closing. With his high endurance he quickly swam to the surface of the ocean and looked around. as he suspect not many boats were around but a few and he could definately swim to on of the and hide aboard it while keeping his spiritual pressure low enough to not be spotted by radars they had to be seen as a threat of some sort. Once he was aboard through he hide inside the ship and navigated his way around it and avoided any of the people on the ship.
By any means nessicary he eventully was moving around the ship to find anyway to get to the Harbor undetected and not be discovered as a K-worlder or even worse a commander. But he stumbled into a room filled with clothes and best thing was it all had a big bag that was pretty new. He eventully rounded up some clothes and took of his k-world ones to switch them with some he found. Now Zane wore rather simple white shirt with some black pants that were very different to what he's seen in k-world due to the maker of clothes in the different realms probably haven't seen each other's designs in many,many years. He eventully left the room still undetected and went back out to where he had arrived at so he could see where he was at and when they would dock. It took a hour or two of hiding on the part of the ship but they were eventully going back into land and by then he learned that this ship was a vacation ship that could hold 100 people as people walked nearby him and talked to themselves. With his new clothes he could now learn a few things instead of staying in the shadows like before.
The last bit of news through was that Harbor was only going to be a small stop for people to get off or on at for half a hour so Zane prepared himself and moved to the part of the ship he would be able to get off of the ship and complete a much easier part of his adventure. With his bit of clothes he had in a bag he left the ship sucessfully without much trouble since most security was on the people getting on the ship and he was eventully alone and safe in a unknown city to himself. But as he walked more into the city, Zane was rather lost on where to go since he had no idea of where the church was that the girl in his drem was at that eventully lead to the demon destroying Karakura. He seemed so lost through that a officer of the cities police force walked up to him and asked him if he was lost and where did he need to get and he could help him.
"I'm looking for a old church do you know any of those around here?" He asked.
He informed Zane of the church and told him that the police have been around all over there due to a company wanting to have the property for some very important flowers. But the officer wouldn't go anymore into detail and gave him the directions and eventully walked away and tried to make sure that Zane wasn't going to follow him as if the information was very important and top secret and could risk his life if revealed which made him very curious. Only the want to reach the church kept him from actully doing what the officer was trying to prevent. He followed the directions carefully as he was eventully in sight of the building and if he hadn't of seen it ahead of time he probably would of missed it with the buildings all around it.
He eventully stopped and viewed the church and it's flowers. Someone must have put a lot of work into it to make it the way it was... a masterpeice and also by the way it looked he could only think this has been around for a long time. The last thing that the church confirmed was that his dream was no thought of his imagination but a vision of what his yet to come and what has happen in history releated to this church. A demon, a girl, a church, him and now flowers were all connected to one big event and he felt this was something that can't be ignored. But for a sudden ending of his peaceful view he felt someone's pressure nearby or in the church as the were moving quickly as if flash steping which got his attention.
"What unusual things await me in this church?" he asked himself.

Hoshiko was enjoying her lunch which consists of fish and rice. Not the best quality, but at least it keeps her from collapsing in hunger. Strange as it may seem, she hears creaking in the rafters and no doubt the officers hear it as well. Hoshiko looks up at the rafters, wondering who was up there when she does not see anyone passing by her or the officers. Hoshiko stands up while looking up while the standing officer looks up as well. Considering the space was big and old, anything can make a sound that even a formerly distracted person like Hoshiko could notice. "Who is up there?" Hoshiko whispers to herself as the standing officer walks over to her. "Think it is TARN?" Hoshiko whispers to the standing officer. "No. They may take that entrance, but never this quiet." The standing officer informs Hoshiko.

Hoshiko looks at the standing officer, bothered by the upcoming point where she would be forced to leave, no matter what. Suddenly, Hoshiko feels something was approaching the mahogany doors. She used to have frequent visitors, so she can notice signs of someone's approach. "I think someone's here to visit." Hoshiko cheerfully notifies the standing officer. "Hoshiko. It could be TARN trying to lure you out." The standing officer informs begrudgingly. Hoshiko sits the pot down and stands up with intent in opening the mahogany doors. "Hoshiko! Have you thought about what is going on?" The standing officer growls with intention of keeping Hoshiko where she is so she can be out of the way. "I will not let you keep me in fear of what will happen later. I will open the doors to those who wants to come into this church." Hoshiko responds boldly to the standing officer.

In blind frustration, the standing officer swiftly strikes Hoshiko across the face with a loud snap echoing around the church. "Fool! You stood up to us and standing against the TARN will be your last mistake!" The standing officer roars at Hoshiko as Hoshiko falls onto the bench harshly while revealing a painfully red mark on her tender right cheek. Her breathing skips as it is painful for her, yet not a tear drop as of yet. Normally, anyone would have retaliated against this, but for Hoshiko, she chooses to sit down and lets her cheek simmer its pain. The standing officer stood in front of her, forbidding her to leave the bench as he draws out his side arm. As it was warned before, a hum of a hovercraft pollutes the air as the standing officer looks around like he was trying to locate where the hovercraft would land. Outside of the church, an aircraft with anti-gravity engines lands on the street not so far from the church.

ENTER TARN HISHI! MICHAEL RED!

ENTER 20 TARN SOLDIERS!
A man with red, spiky hair walks out as the craft's loading ramp descends. With a shock baton in his right hand, he scans the location and taps the communication headset. "Move out. Shikijou wanted the flowers and we will have to dri-" Michael briefs before being interrupted by what is going on in his headset. "Fine...Shikijou also wanted the girl since she did say that she alone can keep them alive. I don't know what is so special about the flowers. Don't kill the informants and the girl. Kill the others if they intervene. " Michael orders the men of twenty armed and advanced soldiers. Each soldier was armed with energy assault rifles and anti-kinetic power suits to protect them from metaphysical attacks while being able to attack spirits and penetrate barriers. Just to see spirits, they are equipped with special visors to pick up on ECP or Energy Convergence Pulses.

If the rumors are true, TARN soldiers would be a big challenge for one person alone. Ten rush into the alleyway towards the church while the craft lifts off, leaving Michael behind. Since Zane is outside and Zen is close to the hole in the rooftop, they would have no trouble spotting out the craft passing by as it was intending to drop the other ten soldiers into the hole on that rooftop. The ramp descends again as the soldiers hook themselves for rappelling. The engine slowly dies down audibly, but remains in the air as if it is activating a stealth system. Hoshiko looks around, wondering about the noise. The standing officer looks around as well, knowing what that could be. He clicks his pistol out of safety and points at the mahogany doorway. Hoshiko stands up and was intending to go to the backroom to get her stuff and be ready for a battle. However the standing officer grabs her right wrist and with a mighty tug, pulls Hoshiko into his arms. He holds Hoshiko like a shield while pointing his gun at Nacora. "Spirit!" Hoshiko calls out to Nacora, even though she is just guessing. Almost immediately, he fires his gun at Nacora with intention of removing obstacles for Michael.
