Nize stood along sides Rem, both staring in a huge screen and looking quite serious on what they were doing. Numbers, charts and scan results filled it and made the boy narrow his eyes time to time. Rems skull mask was as motionless, as always, but eyes under it let Nize understand on how into all this the pervert Hollow was. The one of his main companions, the Arrancar called him shield in his head, had showed quite amazing mental abilities. Combining them with knowledge the male implanted in the minion, he became even smarter, then the guys in few cases. He was also the one, who suggested what both were doing now.
Few weeks ago Nize got his hands on Dues EX Engine. The first idea was just to take it apart and see, what makes it tick. While a object is made out of Reishi, he can do it quite easily and so started a quite fun week, where Nize was taking the precious and powerful machinery into tiny bits, trying to understand how this device pulls a whole new evolution stage out of a Arrancar. Telling the truth, he was one of the persons, that believed a Arrancar to be able surpassing even the forth evolution state, which was stated as the last one. One of proofs for this theory, it was enough to be a proof for Nize, is his created Gappy Spirits, that, based on Hollow genome, had enormous number of evolution states.
While not seeing how he could create one of these wonders himself, after a week he was quite sure he understood the mechanics. They weren't simple, not at all, but working with Rose and together with his amount of free time and dedication, the male had learned a lot. Not only that, you can say that the males curiosity caused him to learn few things he probably shouldn't see. But that was kept quiet and while his boss didn't give him hard time over this, the male was chill. Rem in that time assisting, saying one day something from thin air.
"Maybe we could modify it? You know, make it more natural for the body?"
"More natural?" While Nize was intrigued, he was also doubtful, not really understanding what his minion is talking about.
"Dues Ex Engine forces ones body to enter this laboratory made state. You can say it forcefully extracts from your Hollow being a bit more power, then you can obtain. And so, it creates conflict in ones body, even if it isn't seen. This is one of the reasons why Segunda Etapa with this device together is almost impossible. But what would happen, if you, for example, would fuse the device with your own Hollow core? What would happen then?"
Nize looked positively surprised, rubbing his non-existing beard and muttering.
"You mean making the Dues EX Engine as my actual zanpakutō! You understand how ridiculous it sound?" A smile formed on his lips and Rem was going to admit it, but he didn't manage to do it.
"Lets do it! But remember, if I die, you will need to explain it to Rose yourself!"
After this came several weeks of planning, plotting and crafting. Taking parts of Dues EX and crafting some just for this occasion, slowly there was made armor. It looked as a robots carcass, without a head or actual insides. There was a place to put his zanpakutō, but was meant only for single use. Outer exterior seemed, that this armor was made from thin, black metal and covered with different small gadgets. Part of them were required, part just as extras. If Nize was planning to fuse with this thing, then he wanted few perks, that would make his life easier. Rem thought, that he went overboard with this, but hey, if the Arrancar is going to die after this, then may it be really worth it. To add more, the male was a bit nervous he would loose his possibility to create the gun he had got used to so much already. Because of that, Rem and Nize worked a bit to add each arm something of similar properties with his gun. If the project will be successful, there will be no difference at all...Probably...

The armor had been perfectly attached to Nizes body. It covered it completely, leaving the only part of revealed flesh his head. The process of attaching this device was painful. They needed to remove the skin of his body and then locate every nerve on the males body to attach it with the corresponding wire in the device. Without any anaesthesia, screams of the male were easy heard across the Desert, the Arrancar didn't check, if the lab had soundproof walls. Many curious ones were coming to take a look, what the young “scientist" was up too, but nothing, but the doors were well sealed and a polite note on them asked not to bother. With that the curiosity ended.
It was like a black pit. Everything seemed black for the Fraccione of Primera Espada. From pain he did pass out long time ago, leaving Rem to finish the surgery. But the sleep wasn't calming. It was disturbing, reminding the Arrancar of the time, when he needed to kill just to please the voice in his head. Now he knew what the lurking beast was, but it didn't make things more easier. And this darkness, darkness, that slowly swallowed more and more of his senses, was frightening. But this fear was also the cause, why the male desperately wanted to brake out of it. To reach for the light in the end and defeat those, who seek his enslavement. And with this the males pale eye lids opened, him sleeping on a a cold metal table. Only...He didn't feel the cold.
Rem turned, the Hollow had grew from the small, round ball of a Lesser Hollow, to a human size creature, in strength something between Adjucha and Vasto Lorde. His body was well built and big, the purple flesh being covered with the same color insect shell. On his face still was the skull mask and a large hole could be seen in his chest. Right now the creature wore a white lab cote.
”Good morning master! You had finally awaken. I already got worried, that you won't wake up any more, after the third day passed, but it seems, that you pulled it through. Do you feel any brain damage of any kind or something of that nature? I already took the liberty of making a body scan, but seemed, that there were no damage from the operation."
Nize blinked few times, trying to understand two things, first, what he was doing here and second, what was this place. But quite quickly memories returned and he responded, after the moment of silence.
”Ooo, yes! Right! Everything seems to be in order and if the scan didn't show any damage too, then I can presume, that everything IS in order. Yes...Everything is..." Now the Arrancar was thinking what to do next. While planning, this all seemed quite fun and so on and on, but when it became a reality, the male started to fear of what would happen, if he failed. Loosing his powers was only one thing, that could happen, if he failed. But then the young one would imagine what face Rose would make, hearing and seeing his cowardness and the male would shake off all doubts and start to speak.
”Alright Rem! It is time for us to get this thing going! Where is my zanpakutō?" Nizes voice was loud, determined and strict. From his posture it could be seen, that the male had decided to take control of situation and Rem just obeyed. The blade was brought to him and given in hands.
”Lets switch rooms. I doubt Rose would be happy, if I would destroy this or any lab."
”I think she wouldn't care, while it isn't HER lab." The Hollow commented, letting out a soft laugh. The Arrancar laughed with him, thinking, that it was probably the truth. They reached a room, that wasn't far from the lab. Like the previous time, it too was huge, wide, made completely from black and red bricks.
Rem backed away, Nize made a nervous smile and raised his sword in the air. Then the male inserted it in the empty space in his back and spoke,
”Es hora de jugar, Diobillo!" With that said, tendrils of black and white flames started to come out of his back and wrap around the males body, but then they seized, returning to the gap in which the sword was put in. But there was nothing any more. Lines on the males mechanical body started to shine in white light and surprised the Arrancar. He was staring at his body, before a giant pillar of black flames swallowed his body, enveloping him and breaking a hole in the ceiling and making a way to the sky. He was screaming, the skin left on his body burning off, hair turning to ash and white eyes going completely black. And then the black flames were changed by completely white ones. It was so blindingly white, no one could see, what was happening to the male, but when the energy seized, he was alright.
It seemed as nothing had happened. The only difference was that the white lines in his suit was now shining, the whites in his eyes as well, and land around him was slowly being turning into concentrated Reishi and sucked in his body in pieces of small flakes. Nize turned his head to face Rem and whispered,
”It is done..."
