The man seemed either shocked that it wasn’t Yoruichi or mesmerized that whomever it was looked as she did. ”That’s an awful lot of questions at once, so let’s stick to one.”
She was awfully tempted to call him Ichigo due to his hair being red like a strawberry, but at the same time, she noticed that would’ve simply created confusion.”My name is Aiko Kyoraku.”
The name shouldn’t have been all that important to everyday people. However, whomever was familiar with her surname and the royal house it represented could be able to link her and some form of relation to Shunsui; either daughter, sister, niece, or something else entirely. Spinning around in her bean bag chair with enough force to make the bag spin gently as she did, she went around in slow circles, stretching her legs outward and curling her toes. It felt amazing. At the very least the Captain was not a prude. While Yoruichi and her mom understood the freedom and natural feeling of being in the nude, most normal people would be taken back, and be shocked at the less than lady like display she put up while turning.”My clothes are hidden pretty close to the Squad 1 barracks.”
It made sense after all. That was her old squad. And if she ever revisited the Seireitei, that was the place she was much more likely to go to first. As soon as he spoke once more, she simply eyed him curiously, squinting her eyes, not in annoyance but rather in amusement. He said he didn’t trust her pretty much, or maybe that was just a ruse to try and touch her.
Regardless, she would allow herself to be picked up despite her not quite so tiny size as the Captain sped away towards the barracks. She did however managed to wave and get as many people’s attention as she could, however few there were. It was fun. One would think at least one or two people would have questions later on for the red headed Captain.”Ah, yea. I just remembered they weren’t here. Oops, give me one second. And by the way, if you wanted to cup a feel, there was no need of being a secretive perv about it.”
Joking and with a quick wink, she turned away from him, obviously flashing a backside that was without comparison, and that made even the visage from the front a distant second to it. She simply wanted to force him to walk out with her in the nude to place him into a compromising situation. She didn’t care what people thought of her and how she was, but a Captain would surely have a different reputation to maintain when they oversaw so many people.
By pointing her index finger forward, a large black door would be created before her, just barely taller than she was. The door didn’t look natural. In a way, it seemed almost as if it was a hologram. On the black door, a golden plaque read, Aiko
. ”I won’t take long.”
Opening the door, she went in. From the outside, the Captain would only be able to see what looked like a black and empty void, as if trying to look into outer space or into the depths of a black hole. Unfortunately, he couldn’t come along. The door was created specifically to allow no one but Aiko to enter its temporal dimension. After all, it was created and placed into her mind with the Phantom technology in such a way that it guarded specifically even against true geniuses like Urahara and Unabara. Within, Aiko’s temporal dimension acted as a form of void storage and database. The inside was vast, and perhaps even as infinite as her mind. She could simply store as many physical things within as she wished. Likewise, it was also a database where she could store memories and thoughts as files. Perhaps things she didn’t want to remember, or events she didn’t want to forget. The memories and thoughts could be revisited and analyzed at her whim and at a time of her own choosing.
Walking up to a nearby cabinet that stood on its lonesome, devoid of any other furniture beside it or even a room, she opened of the drawers. Within, a uniform of the Royal Guard could be found. Their uniforms were largely similar to those of a Captain, but they were allowed some minor alterations. The uniform was a white haori with lined red edges, and a pair of graphics symbolic of the yin and yang. The v-like area of her top was cut in a way that it allowed great freedom of movement and enhanced the look and heft of her already sizable bosom. Her hakama was black and reached to just about mid thigh length, where a set of white thighhighs finished off the look. And though she had no visible zanpakuto with her, there was a rather interesting set of dark blue, almost black gloves that extended to cover most of her forearms. While it wasn’t a secret to those that knew her, most wouldn’t know that was actually the form of her sealed zanpakuto.
Just a minute or so after she had gone in, the door would open once more and Aiko would exit, allowing the door to cave down onto itself likely of her will. ”See? It didn’t take long. How do I look?”
The grin she gave when she asked showcased the amusement and anticipation she had about his reaction. As she stood, the prominence of her long hair was rather noticeable as it easily reached down closer to her legs.”Now. I did answer a few questions of you, so you need to start speaking up if you want me to do the same. How do you know Yoruichi? And you’re a Captain, right?”
She had quite the story with Yoruichi that extended beyond just training but her upbringing. It wasn’t a secret however so were he to inquire about it once more, she wouldn’t mind sharing.
