It is Good and Right [Abalia, Yushiro]
Sun Jan 12, 2020 2:32 pm
It seemed Abalia was operating more as a noblewoman than she would have imagined recently. That was perfectly acceptable to her, however. No sooner than Yugiri had left the Kyoraku estate had Abalia written a quick request to meet with Lord Shihoin himself. There were matters that needed to be discussed, after all, and in truth she had already intended to speak with him after her meeting with Vice Captain Kuchiki. This was merely a reason to expedite things.
Now here she was, being escorted to Lord Shihoin himself. As the door was opened, she offered a customary deep bow of greeting, fully respecting the proper customs of Seireitei's nobility. Whether or not this meeting went well, she would not have it said that her own manner was anything other than polite. She sat seiza a suitable distance from Yushiro, then spoke in a reserved tone.
"Thank you for accepting my request for an audience, Lord Shihoin. I had intended to meet with you sooner, but I do hope that you understand the business which inevitably crops up."
She of course had a secondary point to make here, one which she knew would tell her everything she needed to know. It was a very reliable tactic in high society discourse to simply state a potential point of disagreement as if it were patently true, speaking from the position which ran opposite yours. If the other party agreed with you, then they would simply state said agreement, and likely feel more comfortable being honest. But if they disagreed, they would likely understand your intent as having been made with a sarcastic bent.
To that end, Abalia had a very particular lie in mind that would tell her much about Lord Shihoin. She suspected, however, that he would understand her true meaning. She had not heard much to make her doubt his judgment.
"By the by, I recently spoke with your niece, Yugiri. She is quite a pleasant young woman."
