THE INVISIBLE CRACKS
Artist: Tokyo Ghoul - Song: Glassy Sky
Koyo's eyes closed as he listened to the mutters. Some people understood, but others didn't. Breaking that seal is the first step towards a partnership beyond the flesh. "Kido, Hakuda, and Hoho are arts of self, things that require the user to fundamentally master themselves. "
He brought a hand towards his chest, touching it softly. "Physically in Hoho and Hakuda's case, mentally perhaps in Kido. "
Koyo's eyes closed for a moment as he inhaled, speaking as he noticed Asami-sensei's presence. "Zanjutsu is a Spiritual matter; the door, when opened, begins a relationship with a Zanpakuto. "
Koyo paused, now thinking as he thought about the words. Was it a case of a Zanpakuto mastering you, or you mastering it? He believed it was a case of both in the middle somewhere. Koyo swallowed for a moment wetting his lips. "It isn't as simple as mastering your Zanpakuto; it must master you at the same time. "
Koyo's eyes closed as he swallowed again, bringing his hand towards his Zanpakuto. "I have two releases for my Zanpakuto. I can demonstrate both of them. Cleanse them, Asashio."
He pointed his sword towards one of his friends. Small amounts of fatigue had been removed as the water returned and sealed back into his sword. "It is a healing technique that Asashio has; some Zanpakutos have several releases depending on the shikai release phrase."
He said, explaining it as he prepared himself mentally for what he was about to do. His mother's disapproval was something his friends didn't understand.
He brought his Zanpakuto to rest in front of him as a white shimmer emerged around him. Creating an outline of spiritual pressure, he concentrated now as he spoke the release. " Emerge Asashio." A swirling tunnel of water twisted around the blade quickly. Steam and heat from the water radiate from the weapon outwards. A towel-like white cloth hung from the hilt dripping water.
Koyo's body began to drip sweat as heat radiated through the air around them. His expression kept a strange calm. The feeling of those close enough was having entered a Hot Spring or a Sauna. Koyo was revealing the nature of his Zanpakuto. His body acted as a Sauna or Hot Spring sending off that humid heat. Koyo sheathed his sword ending his Shikai with the click of the blade. "Any questions?"
