The day was young, but it was dark. It was raining rather heavily throughout various areas in Rukongai. The area where Snopy's home was located was being pelted by rain. As it thundered and raged outside, Snopy could be seen lying on his bed. His arms were behind his head, legs bent up and one crossed over the other. He had today basically off, so he never went to Seireitei. Kanna was probably busy, Kiyomi was on a mission, and anyone else he knew was busy. As such, he decided to use the day to himself. As his mind jumped from thought to thought, he brought one hand from behind his head to brush a bit of his medium length blonde hair from his eyes. He usually went casual when he wasn't in his Shinigami attire. He wore a simple T-shirt, which was of varying color usually blank as the world of the living was generally the only place that had shirts with any designs that might remotely interest him. The shirt he wore today was a simple blue color. He had a pair of black shorts on, another sign of his casual style. His clothing choices from when he was alive hadn't changed in death it appeared.
On his head, he had a pair of recently obtained sun-glasses from a trip to the World of the Living. It was a completely unnecessary choice considering the weather, and Snopy was well aware of this, but he simply did not care. His eyesight was so strong anyway it wasn't like he wouldn't be able to see with them. As he laid on the bed, ideas as to what to do juggled around his head. Part of him wanted to take it easy. Read some Manga, or play with some various techs that he had gotten into his home. Technology from the World of the Living wasn't something commonly seen in Rukongai, but he found the necessary parts and devices to make everything run. The other idea he had, was to do a bit of training. He was close to achieving something, and he felt it. It would be nice to relax. Read something, or play something. Yet...I feel so close. I don't know what to, but something within me is begging to be released. Or...it seems like it wants to be heard...am I going crazy? Something seems to be trying to get my attention from...within?
Snopy himself was unsure of what it was. He had read a lot about Shikai, but never any details into unlocking it. That was a detail he wanted to find out solely on his own power, he preferred to learn from experience. As such, he had no possible way of realizing that this was an attempt of his Zanpakutō to communicate with him. Though in truth, it could be something entirely different. Within Snopy's head at least, there were a lot of possibilities. He sat up on the bed, inhaling deeply, and exhaling the same way. Not today, I'm not sitting around and adhering to my usual lazy tendencies for my days off. Today, I have something I have to do. He slid his feet over to the side of the bed and stood up. He let out a long yawn as he stretched himself out a bit, as he had been laying there a good hour. He made his way over and picked up the blade of his Zanpakutō, as well as putting his sandals on.
The Shinigami ran into the kitchen and quickly made up a bite to eat. If he was going to train, he'd need some energy. He also had a good drink of water with it, as he was quite thirsty. He ate as quickly as he could without hurting himself in the process and washed all the dishes he used. Once finished, he was eager to make for the front door and leave his residence. He let out a deep, happy, sigh as he exited into the rain. He always loved rain, and big things usually happened to him while it was raining. Something told him this time would be no different.
