Heavy Rain of Leadership [Elyss, Ulv]
Fri Jan 24, 2020 10:22 am
Moisture hung heavy in the early afternoon air. The steam rising off the warm water seemed to grow thick and thin, like the rhythmic breathing of a sleeping child. Outside, a lone shinigami stood watch, both to protect the person inside the bath, and to protect others from her.
Sylvia breathed again, and settled further into the warm water. To say that her meeting with the captain commander of the Gotei United had gone poorly would be the world's greatest understatement. Now, she waited on a messenger to find the captain of the Fifth Division, who she was told could give her information that she and the Vandenreich had needed.
Another sigh brushed passed her lips, and the dense fog of steam rising from the bath rolled out towards the door. In the changing room outside, she had left her clothes neatly folded and within a bubble of reishi that most would be unable to penetrate; even her leiden hant had been carefully removed, which now made it a task in and of itself to repel the abundant reishi around her on her own.
The Quincy stretched out until even her toes were splayed apart in the water, and breathed. She'd thought a bath would help her to relax and stay calm while the messenger found the captain, but waiting was still waiting, in the end.
Restless with the commander's words still on her mind, she sat up, until the water was just below her collarbone, and played idly with the Quincy cross that hung from her left wrist. Her untied hair hung heavily down her back, before being pulled away by the current she had inadvertently made in the water.
The weight of her mission was growing heavier with every moment. She wondered whether she could even carry it for any longer.
