Rejection, something that Bikuta had learned to cope with over his time as a leading role model to others. Sometimes he made decisions and he would be told he was wrong, or he asked questions and they would get shot down. This time, however he could tell that Himeko was genuinely thinking about whether or she'd like to lay waste to the Soul Society or not. She went through several different facial expression loops show the obvious change of her mood as she passed through each possibility of what could happen. Bikuta wasn't mad about it or anything, he was glad to sit and watch as his subordinate took the time to weigh her options instead of going head first into things. As so many new folks did before herself.
It was even the fact that Bikuta did or didn't want to go to Soul Society, I think the main thing that would matter here was that he at least extended his hand. Though, he was rather relieved when she said she didn't want to take on the escapade, he didn't want to have to deal all those nutcases once again. He had never even had the chance to live in the Soul Society, but the few times he did make his way there he felt oddly out of place. Not just because he was a hollow, but because everyone there was just so prepared for such occasions and it shocked Bikuta to see any large scale organization led with such fortitude. It was as if the stepping on the soils of the Soul Society immediately launched alarms to every single captain within the Gotei 13. Most of them would find there way there in a matter of minutes, some hours. Yet, that was just a reflection of personality rather than organization. Though Bikuta disliked the Shinigami and the Gotei 13 with much resent he definitely respected each and every member within their ranks. As they have accomplished many feats and have overcome many obstacles. That was something that Bikuta would hope that someone would one day say about his own.
However, the dreams of the Kurikku didn't lay within the hands of Bikuta. The future of the Kurikku was deep somewhere within the ranks, someone that would carry on their legend after they had been overran and put to an end. Someone that was able to carry the same idea and apply to so many people as they did. Because if the Kurikku ended up not coming out on top, they knew the one thing they had would unity and respect for their comrades, fallen or not. Bikuta believed in those that he fought next to, and that was the whole reason that he would have even thought to take the time to come up and speak with the young girl about anything. Though, he didn't think he would accomplish contentment from the girl so quick, maybe she just liked to reject people. Who knew?
Bikuta looked back over to the girl as she stood ever so gracefully and gazed at the moon. Bikuta looked along with her as well as she began to speak. Though she declined his offer, she was rather polite about it. Which wasn't something that was common with any of the members within his team, so he took kindly to the actions. She continued to speak and continued to share her intelligence of the matters with Bikuta and what she thought the outcomes would be. She was correct, they'd be there too fast. He wouldn't have minded, however, he had grown used to it. She then mentioned that it was a good thing which caused Bikuta to look over at her with his head tilted in slight confusion. He wasn't too sure what she meant by this sentence, but she soon clarified. With which, he grinned and nodded in approval.
Bikuta seemed a bit surprised in this girl, he felt an overall feeling of awe as she spoke to him. Each every word and sentence touching him in a different way. He felt as though he could embody all of her different feelings as she spoke and all of the good and bad of who she was. He wasn't sure what all of this meant or if it was even real or not, but he did in fact grow a deeper respect for the girl. Which, though he respected near everyone, from her outer shell, Bikuta would have never guessed would have happened.
Finally, the girl had began to make her departing words with Bikuta. Which he was once again shocked with. She didn't stay very long and surely didn't give him much time to get to know her. Yet, he was content with their meeting as he hadn't made a decent connection with many of his members in sometime. That was one thing that had become something of the past for him, getting to know his ranks. Yet, he had become so busy the past few years that he had let such tasks slip through his hands. Well, he supposed that all that mattered would be that he fixed that."Thank you. I'm glad my words were able to enlighten you. I would also like to thank you for reminding me how good it feels to meet those that live here. I've been so caught up with other events I've let such things fall into the cracks. Yet, you've helped me remember what I had once forgotten. So I thank you for that. Yes, you may dismiss yourself, I will remain out here so that I can continue to think about a few things. See you around."
He spoke humbly, but as he finished his words he would display a grin that crossed wide on his face, pearly whites showing and all. He'd then go on to gesture a wave just before she turned away to go off. Yes, he was in fact very glad that he had this little run in with the girl. It'd lead to Bikuta co-leading a stronger community...
