Artist: DJ Okawari - Song: Flower Dance
Magnolia listened to ulv when she began to slightly ramble about her zanpakuto, and the capacity it had for destruction when in bankai. Admittedly, as her feet dangled over the precipice for the hole they had created in the earth, it was fun to hear her slightly off-kilter friend go on about something she had called "bear satan". It brought a faint feeling of warmth upon her bosom, she knew that friends like Ulv were rare, and the sentimental side of her definitely appriciated the enthusiasm that Ulv brought to the table. "Bear satan huh? I don't know what satan is, however I assume that is something quite frightening? "
Her response was mired with a soft chuckle, her golden gaze moving from the chasm beneath her to glance at her red-haired companion long enough to flash her the faintest of smiles, before her eyes eventually shifted once more to rove the moonlit sands that surrounded them for infinite distances in all directions. Her mind once more shifted to the task that would soon be upon them: The uprooting of the tyrannical sects within the inverse soul society, a dream that she had undertaken now for many decades, and the reason that she had honed her strength to such a lofty pinnacle.
Mostly due to the train of though she had embarked upon, the remnant dredges of her killing intent leaked out, bathing the region around her for but a moment with its ugly, hair-raising presence, before inevitably being vaniqueshed by the next words that left her friends mouth. The smile that adorned Magnolias face now was far wider, and more heartfelt than the last one, as she let out the faintest of laughs. "You know, I have not had the pleasure of making many friends in my life, but I too am glad to be able to count you among them Ulv. "
Magnolia's words weren't boisterous or loud, but there was a surety, and a kind of confidence that lay within her voice that led to the feeling that Magnolia truly was speaking the words that reflected how she truly felt within her heart. While she may have held Ulv at arms length before, she had completely accepted her as a friend now, and more importantly, she had accepted Ulv as a Martial Sister, which in many ways was far closer than a friend. She was willing to lay her life down now for Ulv, and fully believed that if need be, Ulv would do the same.
A few minutes would pass, mainly in silence after those words had been spoken, and Magnolias mind drifted from the joy of finding someone in this realm that she could call comrade, and focused on how to bridge the gap between universes to be able to enter the black realm once more, given she had come here merely as a fluke, she didn't particularly know how to get back. In the middle of her thoughts, Ulvs next question caught her off guard, something that was evident in the faint sigh that escaped her lips, and the way she ran her fingers through her hair in frustation. "I... honestly done know how to return yet. I came here in the beginning as a freak accident, and despite my strength, I dont think I could simply rip a hole between my inverse realm, and this one. I will need to figure out how I got here in the first place, before we could even begin to figure out how to make it back. "
Magnolia's words escaped her lips with a tone of uncertainty, and conviction. She didn't know how to make the trip back, but she was sure she'd figure it out eventually. After responding to all Ulv's questions, Magnolia would push off the sand with her hands, launching upwards to smoothly land on her feet just inches from the edge of the hole she had been sitting near.
Her geta dug faintly into the sand as she'd turn around to face Ulv, a carefree grin gleaming on her lips. "For now though, I should go back and get changed and get my clothing mended, after that, I will have to do some digging to figure out how we are going to return. After which we will meet up and get ready to embark upon this journey. "
After saying those words, she'd slowly make her way over to Ulv, her left hand moving down to pat her friend on the shoulder in farewell, before she'd walk forward and vanish in a flicker of electricity.
