The squid like hollow had skirted into what looked to be a small clearing, it began to feel the pressure of the Shinigami. It’s void like eyes gazing up at the shinigami to see five pulsing and crackling balls of energy where it once stood, it’s head tilting slightly at the balls. The Shinigami was simply standing under them supported by a branch, his Zanpakutō in an offensive stance. It would seem that he was slightly crouch with his hand pointed upwards at the balls, this made the Hollow let out a deafening screech as it began to launch itself with the toxic ink at the shinigami clearly intending to bite him.
Hayden however was fast enough to activate his trap card, his body beginning to move at hyper speed using his Shunpo to throw the orbs of energy at the Hollow. You see this was his most basic slayer Kido while not overall strong enough on their own to bring a hollow down, it would allow them in a group to overpower and kill/paralyze an opponent. If the balls struck the Hollow what would most likely happen would be small explosion but that was not the pure purpose of these balls- that acted as a small distraction as they Hollow was encased by crackling lightning like reiatsu to paralyze or simply destroy it dispersing it’s reishi. It was a highly effective technique when used right.
However, the hollow was able to dodge two of the large five balls before it struck them immediately sending them down to the ground with a loud thud. It would howl and screech in pain convulsions about as the energy flooded it’s body acting as a type of taser. If all of those balls had struck the hollow it would cause the monster to burn up in the energy. As the Hollow convulsed about he quickly leapt from their tree quickly dashing over to the Hollow his blade lifting as he thrusted it downward towards the mask of the hollow. As the blade pierced it’s mask it immediately was purified and sent to the afterlife, his job was one third done.
However, as he began to make his way to the scene he felt a dramatic shift in power. It would seem that whoever was there managed to take both the hollows out. Although he felt the immense power waning this only increased his interest to get closer to what was going on. So by his sheer interest he kept his pace towards the area beginning to feel a strong shift in the temperature as he neared it enough to make his breath icy. He began to slow as he was now in the clearing what looked to be a tired and worn woman.
“S-so your the one with t-this power,” he stuttered slightly mostly due to the cold weather, he didn’t quite sheath his blade but he seemed to have let his guard down. For now he didn’t want to make her see them as a threat.
“I-I work for the Vanguard this is my p-post, do you mind not having it this c-cold?” He asked waiting for her to warm the area up slightly, if and once she did he would speak.
“Who are you- why are you in the forest alone? Most people avoid this area so I’m guessing your not from here?” He asked calmly looking around before detecting no more threats.
