The passage of time. It ticks on and on and on as the sun rises and sets each day, greeting us in the morning and making way for the moon to rule over the night. Time is a concept that this woman has lost a grip on. What is a second? What is a year? Everything flew by unknown to her. However after a while, she slowly began to care less and less. Had a year passed? No. It can't have done. A few months sure, but not as much as a year. She would be older then. A whole year older. Would she look any different? Probably not. That's just who she was...
...Ashlei. The Hollow Demoness had gone missing a while ago. She had gone to visit Mana to help her revitalize her body as she was falling to pieces and on the verge of death. Afterwards, she learned of Hueco Mundo's attack. Her home was about to be destroyed. She rushed to the scene but sadly, when everyone expected her to arrive she did not make it out of the other end of the portal. What happened? Does anyone actually know?
The world between worlds is a dangerous place. Stray too far from the path and escape becomes impossible. The dark void will swallow you whole and you shall drift for all eternity. Only those with enough power could possibly make it out of there alive after falling so far from their route. After Ashlei had burst into the precipice world, she spent several seconds flying forwards with unbelievable amounts of power blasting from her body. Once she got to the other side however, she fainted. The girl collapsed right when she would have made it to Hueco Mundo. The Gargantua she made fell apart and her vision failed her. The new power Mana had granted her was too much to handle. So she plummeted into the depths of the precipice.
Darkness. Eternal darkness. A thick blanket of black. That was all she was greeted to when she awoke several months later. Her body, not in the same shape as it was before. The girl looked at herself, using her own reitsu as a torch. She was a wreck. She'd lost weight. She'd even lost an arm and half a leg. Most of her hair was missing and her right eye wouldn't function. She sat there for a moment, floating through the void, barely alive from the lack of blood intake she had. A mistake like this could easily cost her her life but for some reason, she managed to wake up.
Months of pent up stress and power allows her to reactivate the muscles in her arms. She stretched out and tore open a Gargantua with what little might she had in her frail form. The girl then slowly reached out for it, and pulled herself through into the dark night of hueco Mundo.
Arriving at her home, she fell immediately into the sand and lay there. She didn't move. She just lay there enjoying the stillness. She was no longer floating in the void. If she were to die here, then maybe it would be okay. It was her home after all. She thought this to herself, and that exact thought saved her life.
From the sand beneath her sprouted a small white root of a plant. It grew rapidly, reaching towards the sky and becoming a small plant sprouting white leaves and twisting closer to her body. This, was Las Viviente. Hueco Mundo's living weapon and home. The gigantic tree set off in the distance could sense and read the minds of the hollows that inhabit its land. Ashlei was no different. In a last ditch effort to protect it's mistress, Las Viviente created a root through the sand to her location. The plant it formed then sput around itself and grew sharp thorns. It then sliced itself in twain, revealing its fleshy interior. The flailing plant, now cut from its roots lay on the sand by Ashleis face, allowing her single eye to notice it. With the last ounce of her reitsu, she moved the red liquid inside the now dead root into her mouth. The living tree. The biological masterpiece. The abomination she had constructed. It could save her life when no one could see her.
The blood from the tree slipped into her mouth and trickled down her throat. Almost instantly, Ashlei could feel her body recharging as though she had switched batteries. The blood made her feel her throat again. Her organless body rebooted itself, empowering her muscles. Mere seconds later, Ashleis missing limbs burst forth from her stumps, greeting her with the ability to move again. She lifted herself from the ground, her hair growing rapidly to shift back into her recognisable red waterfall. She stood on her knee's for a moment, and looked up at the sky. The demonic armour around her skin grew back quickly and to complete her revival, her eyes flickered from a dull gray to a life-filled red.
Alive once more, the Queen of Hollows reached under the sand and yanked out the root that had saved her. Her sharp demonic fangs sank deep into the solid wall that was the stone flesh of the root and tore it apart, revealing the bloody liquid within. Ashlei engorged herself on the rest of the root, bringing back more and more of her strength. Soon after pulling up half a mile worth of root, Ashlei dropped the stone carcass and stood still. She looked about herself. Where is Las Noches? Where is her city?
"I need to know what has happened in my absence..."
Instead of running to where she thought her castle would be, Ashlei released her energies. The sand around her began to defy gravity as the force of her reitsu lifted up every single grain with ease. After a short while, the flat sand she stood on before had become a crater the size of a small lake. A silent crater where only the releasing of a fraction of her energy was enough to push the sand at her feet aside. She then hid her power once more then looked skyward, wondering if anyone might have noticed her.
