Welcome to Bleach Platinum Hearts RP! This is a Bleach Role Playing Forum set in the year 2416, over 400 years away from the Original Bleach's timeline. It has elements of both canon and custom for a unique mixture of role playing never seen before on Bleach. To get started, please sign up and read our starter guide:
The thick forest that resided outside of the vast trilogy of cities, was not a place for the weak at heart hollows gathered here like flies to a corpse they swarmed the surrounding forest looking on into the city waiting for any chance to break in and slaughter all those innocents. Today though it was particularly crowded so much so that the higher ups in Soul Society, felt it would be necessary to send in a small squad of shinigami to lower the number of the ravenous hollows. The Senkai gate appeared above in the sky slowly manifesting itself into full view, the doors slid open the bright light that shined out from it, cast a shadow on the four figures that stood at the entrance slowly one by one they would step out. Stepping in mid-air as if it where solid earth, the one in front was a long silver haired shinigami, with lazy spikes leaning back from the top of his head all the way to mid back. His well toned muscular body standing in all its glory as his light hazel eyes looked down at the swarm of hollows below, he knew it wouldn't be long before the hollows below caught scent of them. His hands down at his side he was Striver, Balmung member of the 2nd division he was put in charge of this small team of shinigami."We all know what we have to do, let's get this over with quickly. But remember, do not take them lightly though they are weak they are many, if one of you gets swarmed fire a warning shot into the air and those of that can will help. Ready! Move out!"he would swing his arm and all three shinigami behind him would dash in different directions.
Balmung himself stood in the air looking down at the hollows that where slowly making their way out of the forest he would reached for the handle of Seiryoku, gripping it firmly as his left hand held the black sheath. The hollows had noticed him, all of them where looking up at him and with the other shinigami getting to work causing a comotion and what not it was time for him to cut down a few hollow. The hollows all swarmed upwards towards Balmung he braced himself drawing his zanpaktou from its scabbard, then rushing down at the group of hollows releasing a burst of reiatsu from the bottom of his feet giving him a speed boost, when he was close he started to manouver side to side avoiding them. All the while slashing the ones he could reach, by striking their masks the hollows would let out a blood curdling shriek before turning into nothing but spiritual particles. Balmung would shoot himself out of the hollow swarm having lessend the numbers of it significantly he landed on the ground with a quiet thud looking up at the hollows that where doubling back at him. They where coming at him he would jump back and into the forest the hollows crashing onto the ground, some knocking themselves stupid others where able to manouver quickly and chased Balmung into the forest.
It was about ten minutes into the mission so far everything was going well until the ground began to shake, Balmung was in a power struggle with a mantis like hollow but easily pushed away the hollow slicing it in half soon after doing so. He would ignore the shaking dismissing it as just one of the other shinigami or a hollow even using a powerful attack, but then he sensed one of the other three shinigamis vanish, thei reiatsu signature was gone. That meant one thing[size=9]'What...is that!?"[/size]he would think in the back of his mind as he heard rustling in the distance, then he heard as if the trees where being torn from the ground immediately the other two shinigami jumped out stopping next to Balmung."Whats going on?"would be all Balmung would ask expecting a straight answer, but instead he got silence from one and another simply looked at him his eyes filled with fear it was clear that whatever was inside this forest was powerful, very powerful. Balmung's eyes widened as he saw what looked like projectiles headed their way"Jump!" he would yell as all three jumped in unison stopping up above the air, they would look down only to see the projectiles where tounges, long tounges each tounge had hollows stuck to it they retracted back.
Balmung followed the path of the tounges to see only what looked like a giant white turtle shell in the distance, it towered over the trees of the forest the beast would raise its head, looking somewhat reptilian with a pair of individual moving eyes letting out a loud roar. Balmung and the other two shinigami could sense the heavy reiatsu coming from this thing, the best thing to do would be to retreat and get back up, but if they did this thing would attack the barrier around the city Balmung stood up straight holding his zanpaktou down at his side."Kanryu, call for back up. Megumi you're with me...let's move!"Balmung and the female shinigami would both charge at the creature it saw them coming, wasting no time it shot out those tounges once more, Balmung started to manouver around in the air as did Megumi they where avoiding the tounges best they can. Kanryu pulled a cell phone from his pocket raising it up to his ear he would speak franctically into it "This is Kanryu of squad two! Me and two other shinigami are in need of back up...I repeat need of back up...one down!" he would close the cell phone nod to himself then join Balmung and Megumi. The three shinigami where manouvering around the giant hollow avoiding it and attacking, but it was to avail its hell was to strong then all of a sudden Megumi was pulled from Balmung's side he would watch helplessly as she was pulled away and into the hollows mouth. Balmung controled himself but Kanryu couldn't stand the sight of his wife being eaten alive, "Megumi!!!" would be all he would say as he would charge at the hollow raising his zanpaktou Kanryu would call out a phrase "Eliminate! Tsurugi Ondo!" his zanpaktou would glow a bright white color, as it deformed in his hand and changed its shape. He now held a blue blade saber, swinging it once he released a blue wave of reiatsu at the hollow, but it was useless the beast overpowered him and ate him too.
Balmung was now alone he couldn't believe it his comrades where dead, was it his fault? His leadership...was what got them killed his eyes where wide with shock the hollow turned its attention to Balmung whipping its tounges at him he avoided them but was so distracted and filled with guilt. That he was suddenly smacked and was sent flying his body bounced off the ground like a basketball as he dragged across it, his uniform was torn apart. He lay there looking helplessly as the giant hollow came near him, Balmung struggled to stand but he couldn't his body felt to weak, it was all over for him.

Subject Post 3Subject: Re: Odd Meeting[April Redwood] Wed Jul 07, 2010 5:54 am
“Why must you betroth a such a display hateful gestures towards me and your mother?” That meek male voice stalked through the murky darkness that roamed the area. It was just so dark, nothing could be see anything even if it was right in front of them, additionally from a far something was curled up back into the corner like if ‘It’ was afraid of moving. Something wasn’t correct, ‘It’ didn’t seem to have the emotion to fear anything, despite the whatever was lurking within the pitch black shadows might be able to destroy ‘it’. It was as if this ‘thing’ was immune to mental torture or pain that might become of ‘it’. ‘It’ breathing was calm and steady as this creature tried to drive ‘it’ insane just by lingering there thought out the shadows. How can one drive something insane when ‘it’ had passed that point of insanity a long time ago. Another familiar voice came from the depth of darkness before 'it' yet this time... the voice made 'it' budge as the voice rang loud and clear and acted as if he was him.. “Beauty at the fullest; that is what you are. A beauty who has gone through each trial of life has thrown at you, just to find out that you will be destroying everything that stands against you, any race that encounters you on your rain of destruction. Once you purify this world, you will die then again you will be summoned to this world again to cleanse this sinful world again?” That was completely the truth once ‘it’ finished cleaning the world up from all world or she had to force the people from all worlds to give her the sins that they carry. “
Then again you did destroy your own master for power? Power that is desperately unnecessary, for you destroy the Soul Society if you wanted to now!” An arrancar stood before ‘it’ with a look that ‘it’ despised the most. That look of disgust and sicken as if ‘it’ was the weak one, and he was acting like ‘it's’ father. This male arrancar stood about 5'4 feet tall with the most long glittering blond hair that went to his rather bold shoulders every inch there was a hint of wavy hair mixed which at a little spicy to him. That hair framed that angelic face of his; it seemed like it was actually craved by the angels themselves. Those lime-green eyes glowed if an odd emotionless began stared down at ‘it’ like ‘it’ was not a threat but unknown to him ‘it’ was planning something sinister. He wore a common uniform that rest of the arrancars wear back in the Hueco Mundo. A collared sleeveless shirt that is half way buttoned up with black trim, a plain white pair of white pants and those black shoes. This male was foolish enough to raise his hand as if he was going to slice and dice ‘it’, then charged full speed ahead with only thinking ‘I will end this’ The moment he flew by ‘it’ like a hank and it's dead pray. His lime eyes looked back at ‘it’ who was perfectly condition and suddenly something hit him really hard just now. He whipped himself right around as it was just good to be true and confront ‘it’ face with a completely expression on his perfect face of his. The emotions of surprised and shocked were too easy to read off of him along with the fact there was something to fear about ‘it’ “You are the true legendary arrancar after all that time this time you made me believe that you were a low life. An Shinigami was truly a nightmare to all and basically still is at the time, the Elder of us all...and the mos-” He was interrupted by his head sliding right of his neck.
‘It’ had move out from ‘it's’ corner without mercy, in the neatest way possible sliced his head right in the middle of his thick neck, and just so ‘it's’ clothing would remain clean from the blood, afraid of staining them. ‘It’ shadowy figure swayed over to the separated head to simply grab a fist full of that beautiful locks of hair and brought in up so the head faced ‘it's’ own face. “A reason why should have not guess who your prey because the prey might become the predator, Ghoul.” For the very first time, ‘it's’ voice was heard since a thousand years ago since ‘it’ saw a glimpse of the pure light. That voice had to long to a female for it sounded very seductive but yet knowledge that would make a wise man insane just by listening to the truth. A voice that possibly drive any man even woman to breaking point. One voice combined with every sin within it yet the normal voice had a special trait from each sin, to give perfection and nothing more. Those emerald eyes just revealed themselves to just drive the darkness away in fear. “I am a legend upon all races, people hear my name and they would fear the rest of their life, throughout the three worlds.... April Redwood” Those words were destined to be truth for she was god among men. An evil cackle roared like a fox would at the foolish carp, throughout the little world of nothingness that refused to let her go..
Those eyes shot right open after the nightmare let her go, oh god.. The look upon the maiden's face was priceless indeed but that is what she gets for begin a shinigami ment for greatness like the giant wars she had been in. Every second either a shinigami or hollow got slain... It was not understood when she was in the first war.. But she knew it was the saddest thing she had ever seen. That very smile remained on her face to give hope to everyone. Did it matter anymore? Was there even hope for the shinigami? If there was one thing she knew was that hope always saved the best of person. Sweat was just beating down from her forehead. What type of dream was that?! Of all people someone was trying to destroy the Captain through dreams. Her eyes had so much fear it in, but it shook off quickly. A Captain didn't have team for silly fear! It was all in the mind! The redish pink haired female stood up in the tree that she found herself resting in before. It was nice sleep just horrible nightmare. Next time she has to remember just not eat sugar, it always gave such nightmares to her. Her outfit was not similar towards other shinigami, it was a sleeveless black dress with a white sash that went across her narrow waist. April was rather smart that she was she wore shorts under it just for reason men who liked to flip skirts with a captain's haori fitted for slim and tender figure so it would not look gigantic like the Captain's before her. Though back to April and her little moment of being clueless. Her teeth bite her lower lip just thinking about what to do now.. A man with orange hair approach her slowly but she only looked up with that original smile. Behind her ear was a rather beautiful lily.. Lily were hope or that was what she believed. April took out a napkin that had little strawberries on it, from between her large breast and with such elegance wiped the sweat off. A hell-butterfly with a bright pink bow around its neck... It fluttered onto her arm and April could not help but sigh deeply at what it said.. There was trouble, A giant hollow had killed several Shinigami and only one remained. The located was close because of reitsu could be felt from her point. Brushing her pink hair out of way, she muttered "I will go and save them no less." April could not help but do what was right. Without another word that maiden flashed stepped over towards the Area.
Within a seconds of area, the place smelled like that of fresh blood. It made April feel rather sick... Just the smell of blood reminded her of the wars that she witness... The wars that she had to murder innocent people for the name of the Soul Society. A cruel fate for the price of a silly title of Captain. As Captain, she loved every moment of it, people looked up to her unlike they did before in her first one hundred years... The sight that want made her stood still on that tree branch with her hands upon her hips and a smile plated. Balmung too weak to stand on his own two feet was a bit of disgrace of Vice-Captains but she could felt the same if her friends were killed. Before the hollow got any closer, the female swiftly flash-stepped over in front of the hollow then those blue orbs leered back towards male, "It is not your fault that your friends are dead. If I see you cry, I will surely loss my respect that is left for you." Before hollow could come any closer to the female, Her Spiritual Pressure was monsterous as it released from her body, pinning the hollow down. "A Damn shame to lost shinigami to a weakling like this..." There was no difference with the beautiful maiden's eyes or anything. A female like so controlled herself like a captain should.. But the maiden raised her sealed Zanpakutō up to the Monster's mask.. "I pity you dear soul" It was a nice quick death indeed.. The energy that was released split the monster into two halves, then began to disappear in a pure spirit. She didn't take sight of it leaving to the where it is to go but those eyes focused upon Balmung. Both her Spiritual pressure released everything around her, allow the man to move slightly. He was the last survivor no less. That was expected... April swayed as she made her way to the young lad, who continued to lay there. April sat down in-front of him with that warming aura before she pulled out a little container of herbal gel.
"Come now... I wish to heal you... Please try to sit up or lean against me if you can't bear yourself.."

Laying there Balmung felt weak and pathetic his eyes staring at the hollow as it charged towards him ripping and tearing the trees in its way as it got ever so closer to him. Balmung gripped his zanpaktou firmly in his hand, he slowly pushed himself up to a sitting position "Kanryu....Megumi....I failed them" he would say grinding his teeth as he glared at the hollow his usual calm and collected hazel eyes now filled with rage. But as he tried to stand something would happen to Balmung, his body would freeze at the sensation of another spiritual pressure but this was not a friendly spiritual pressure it was a mixed reiatsu. Balmung would feel a bony hand place itself on his well muscled shoulder, "Is this where you plan to die Balmung?" the voice that spoke those words sent chills down Balmung's spine. He knew the voice, hearing it made so many memories flood into his mind he would slowly turn his head to face the man, he was rather short but not by much at most standing at six feet, but his body was frail in comparison to Balmung's. "Takashi..." the name would be uttered in a whisper as if a forbidden word that was never to be spoken again, the words that came from Balmung's mouth where shaky his hazel eyes now focused on the man that stood next to him he had not changed one bit in the last sixty years. It was all the same, down to the bandaged eye Takashi's piercing gaze was looking directly at Balmung the two made eye contact for the first time in years.
The last time Balmung had seen Takashi, was when he tried to kill him forcing Balmung to release his shikai but even then his sensei, had left him for dead in the rubble. Balmung had learned what Takashi had become, he had defected from Soul Society, and under went a taboo process in order to become what is known as a Vizard. Takashi's eyes then moved towards the hollow slowly, "How pathetic...all the time I invested into your training, and you will die here? Did you learn nothing from me Balmung, look at what your weak friends have caused. In there death they are what holds you back, release your bonds with your humanity! Unleash the monster inside of you!" he would pause as he gripped Balmung's shoulder with force. "I know what you are capable of! I have seen it myself, remember all those innocent people....the slaughter?" he would say, Balmung stood there his eyes still on Takashi when Takashi uttered those words Balmung flash backed into that fate full night.
A young Balmung walked next to the tall and lanky Takashi, Balmun's short silver hair setup in a series of upwards spikes, and his body not as muscles as now. Wearing his shinigami uniform he walked side by side with his sensei the two where in the far off districts of Rukongai, all Balmung knew as to why they where heading there was simply "Personal business" he wasn't one to question his sensei so he simply went along he felt privileged that Takashi would allow him to tag along. In these days Balmung was but an innocent boy, who was eager to explore the worlds wonders finally they arrived at a small town located in the outskirts where no shinigami really ventured. Takashi stood as always with his long wooden pipe in hand and his emotionless gaze ever so attentive to every detail "Balmung...what do you know of hollows?" he would ask him turning his pipe around as he filled it with a bit more tobacco. His student would turn to Takashi scratching the back of his head, "I know they are condemned souls that have been corrupted and it is o--" but before he could do it Takashi would raise a finger cutting Balmung off "Blah...blah...blah...all that bullshit they teach you at the academy are lies" he would say with a wide grin.
"Excuse me?" Balmung would ask a bit puzzled at his sensei's words he knew Takashi was, well an odd fellow but never really one to question the Gotei 13, he was after all the captain of squad 11 during this time. "Like I said, its all a bunch of neatly wrapped crapped they feed you. Hollow, are gifts Balmung they are unique creatures that can grant us great power...we just need to know how to harness it" he explained as he reached into his sleeve. Balmung would raise an eyebrow at this, "Sensei...what are you saying? Hollows are the enemy" he would say in a confident tone of voice, Takashi would merely ignore Balmung then pull a small veil from his sleeve it contained a purple liquid inside of it. He would hand it to Balmung, "Drink that" he would order, not say simply order Balmung would look at the small veil noticing a small shriveled seed floating inside. He would look backa t Takashi with a bit of doubt in his eyes, "What? Just drink it, a direct order from your superior damn it" Takashi would say a bit annoyed by Balmung's hesitation.
Balmung would sigh opening the veil and drinking the liquid, it was thick and tasted like rotten egg juice he would gag a bit after swallowing it but once he did Takashi would merely take a step back, without Balmung noticing he would snap his fingers releasing a few sparks of reiatsu. Balmung would suddenly feel something, his body pulsed a few times as he stood there with his arms down at his side, his eyes started to roll back, then came an intense pain unlike any he has ever felt. "Ga...GAH!!!!" Balmung would scream at the top of his lungs gripping his head with his hands as he fell down to his knees slamming his head onto the ground in an attempt to make the pain go away. The people in the small town watched on with terror some fled to their houses others attempted to exit the village but where cut off by shinigami, all members of squad 11 or shinigami who shared Takashi's views and ideals. Takashi would grin as he stared down at Balmung, "Thats it Balmung....let the madness consume you....show me what it is you can do. Show me what was left inside of you from your father, SHOW ME BALMUNG! WHAT THE SON OF THE GREATEST WARLORD TO HAVE EVER LIVED CAN DO! SLAUGHTER THEM ALL!!!" he would order. At this point Balmung would stand on his feet, saliva and blood dripping from his mouth, his usually calm eyes now glaring from behind a few locks of hair. A grin slowly formed across his face, Balmung would kick off the ground drawing his zanpaktou, blood would spill into the air.... ______
Suddenly the memory would be interrupted Balmung would snap back into reality by a powerful surge of reiatsu that engulfed the area around him, his vision soon became focused and clear just in time to see the red headed female slay the hollow. His eyes stared in awe at the woman's skill but then he would be mesmerized by her beauty when she turned to face him, she approached the fallen Balmung sitting in front of him. Her warm aura comforted him, it made him feel at ease he almost actually forgot what was going on around him, his eyes just focused on the woman her beauty had him in a trance. He would snap back when she spoke to him shaking his head, he would quickly nod accepting her offer for help "Thank you helping me" he would say as he sat himself up the upper part of his uniform was mostly torn apart. It showed his muscular body, his powerful arms where well visible, his broad and well muscles shoulders, his long silver hair going down to his back with the lazy spikes. His light hazel eyes where on the woman the entire time, they stared at her from behind the strands of silver hair that hung over them casting a light shadow over his eyes.
Balmung would notice the what the woman was holding in her hand, a healing gel perhaps she was from the fourth division? But still to have such high reiatsu she surely was a captain, he would turn giving her his back which was the area that was injured during his battle. "Thanks again for the help, if you had not showed up I wouldn't be here probably. Um...if you don't mind me asking, what squad are you a part of exactly?" he would ask her looking back at the woman from over his shoulder. He didn't want to miss a second of her beauty, it was almost like when one found an outstanding and awe inspiring sight they wouldn't want to take their eyes off of it for a second this was Balmung with this woman's beauty. He didn't want to take his eyes off of her, her flowing silky red hair, those big blue eyes, her physical appearance overall was a sight to behold and her comforting aura was just a plus it made Balmung feel safe. Kind of silly really, such a big man needing such a petite and gentle looking woman in order to feel safe, "By the way I am Balmung Striver, Vice Captain of the Second Division. You are?" he would say giving the woman his signature greeting a two finger salute but this time it was followed by a kind looking smile.
In the distance, Takashi had long since vanished he was staring from a safe place his reiatsu suppressed to a level that even someone as seasoned as the red headed woman wouldn't be able to detect. He watched with his good eye observing silently, "My oh my Balmung..." he would whisper to himself, it seemed that his former student had fallen for this woman. Things had taken an unexpected turn of events, that red head bitch had interrupted him Balmung was in an emotionally weakened state when he found him. The flashback was to re awaken the demon seed inside of him, it was Takashi after all that set up this whole scenario. But he did not count with a random stranger to show up and save Balmung, specially not one with reiatsu that matches that of a captains Takashi rubbed his chin "But...this could work to my advantage. For now Balmung...I will allow you to live on, but soon you will be under my heel again" with that said Takashi took a step back being enveloped by the shadows and vanishing from sight.
Balmung sat there looking back at the woman he really was impressed with her fighting skill, she had vanquished the hollow with such ease, it made Balmung look bad for sure she probably thought of him as some two bit weakling. A woman with so much power wouldn't find a weakling attractive, and making an excuse would make Balmung seem even weaker he would simply have to bide his time and wait for an opportunity to show her that he wasn't just a weakling. He felt something he had never felt before after seeing this woman, his stomach felt as if butterflies where fluttering inside of it he felt nervous. But he was able to stomach it all down he had to keep his composure he didn't want this beautiful woman to think him a weakling and a loser, he couldn't wait to hear her sweet voice utter her name. By this time he had thought of so many possibilities for her name, but it was hard such a beauty was beyond the need of a name nonetheless she surely had one.

Subject Post 5Subject: Re: Odd Meeting[April Redwood] Thu Jul 15, 2010 8:19 am
It was stunning on how this man looked in all her years... From all the man she has seen, he was extremely handsome no less. There was not a single thing wrong with his body from what she seen... or what she could see from this torn up shinigami outfit but she didn't show any sigh of blush on her already rosy cheeks. His light tan skin made this a bit harder for to look, if there was one thing that the maiden had learned the hard away. April always had a thing for any man that was taller then her, he sure hit that account. With just the looks of the male he was a good 6'4 or 6'5 but that only a good guess. He was sitting down so it made it even harder for that guess. Her mood didn't help the Hollow what so ever but maybe toward him. A sweet mood plus loving feeling towards anyone who is a shinigami no matter how cruel they were other. But deep inside of her, something inside trigger... This silver man hunk was rather appealing toward the red haired female. It was rare for any man to catch this woman's attention, for example. Her Vice-Captain felt that embracing aura that surround the maiden, while human. When you are confused as she was about her life, the female will be there to shine a bright light upon your gloomy day... No matter of much a air head she might seem at times there was things you didn't know about her, this made the female just nod.
That beautiful pink hair began to think of the past about what happened to Hinawa. That was one case that her love was either going to be either a hit or run.. She never wanted anyone to be sad over the little things or blame things. Listening to the male as she walked over to him, thoughts of him being weak only grew more onto her mind. A simple shinigami should never blame him or herself for something so weak as losing teammates.. She felt the pain years go when she lose her own teammates, as much as it pained her that smile. That very smile that very man would love to see from a wife no less, but that woman who has been though hell and back. It was not that thing she wanted for other to go through but it happened almost every day to someone in the Soul Society. He blamed himself for everything that had happen, but the female could not help but remember what happened with Hinawa. That was a trail by itself, just being herself showed how much human really need a guide at times.. Maybe they just a need a bit more to every looking stone. Without a second to waste her mind went off, as her illuminated blue eyes taken off of him for a split second. Her long pink hair just shimmered as it danced around her tiny body.
Flash back... ~~
Sometimes, things just couldn't get any worse. Not only did Claire find her again, but Hinawa couldn't go back to the graveyard now, or the Memory Rosary could locate her with even more ease. Just great when you get chased out of the place you made your home in over the last two years, really. Sighing, the rather beautiful young girl sat on the shoreline, looking over the water, the knees pulled back and her head resting upon them. If one was to look at the girl with the slightly blue and green hair, you could easily think to have spotted a ghost, because she was surrounded by a strange, white-blue aura, emitted from the hands. Since she was so curled up, it looked like it actually encased her whole body.But actually, this girl was very much alive, and really not the angel she looked like with all that white around her hands. Hinawa was a murderer, having killed more people than many serial killers, and also slaying Hollows whenever they got in her way. Though, it wasn't like it was her fault - when someone was stupid enough to touch her hands, their fault for dieing a horrible death! Well, normal humans didn't normally see her freezing aura, but still. Their fault, yep. The cold, green eyes wandered over the water. It wasn't like she could do anything about that, either. Anyone who weavered in his heart would be startled by this look, maybe even frozen in his tracks due to shock. Having her hands resting on the ground, the outflowing Reiatsu slowly freezed the ground under her. A normally, grasy shoreline, with some flowers. Slowly, the flowers around Hinawa started to freeze over, sparkling beatiful white and blue in the light of the day. A day that wasn't that hot, luckily.
Without thinking indeed on could not help, no did one hold anything against one for the committed sins. A heart with receives darkness that will only give light and hope. It come so believe there was once a woman in Karakura, a beautiful woman no less and she was extremely powerful. The maiden had killed dozens of hollows and people got in her way, she even owned her own motorcycle gang at best. The She was Red Butterfly... She had only few friends if you didn't count of her motorcycle gang. That was Mizore, Jade, Matthew and Tsuna. Just imagine all those precious memories of the developing on who was is disappeared ever fast once the maiden kicked the bucket. Now she lives in Soul Society now 8th captain of the division for a time being while her brother has gone training here in the human world. April had more friends then she ever had on earth and living... The day seemed rather cool in Karakura, and our little April had her duty to patrol the living world for about an hour or so. She didn't really know where she was going for the last time April was here, she was with her brother. Many streets seemed rather empty, not a single hollow out today. The direction she was heading in was getting a bit chillier then the other areas... An blue aura no less came from the lower section of the river. April's long pink hair shimmered but it swirled around as she dashes to the aura... It made April worry for no reason at all, maybe because she was kind hearted.. There in her view was an adorable girl curled up with her head on her knees, surrounding her were iced flowers that twinkled from afar. This girl was she upset over something? April steadily made her way down the hill to get the female, just landing on her feet she asked quietly "Are you okay?" April was not near her but she close enough so the female could hear her. Those blue eyes just stared happily at her just wondering why she was so sad.
It took Hinawa quite a bit to react. Slowly, she raised her head, and her freezing cold green eyes met the beautiful blue ones of April. What was that expression...? The cold girl could not really tell. Nobody had ever looked into her eyes with a caring look, actually. "..." First, Hinawa didn't even respond. Was this a Shinigami? Seemed most likely. Her aura wasn't weak, but not exactly strong, either. And for sure not as beast-like and frightening as the one of a Memory Rosary. And it for sure was not Hollow. "I was just chased out of the only place I felt a little safe in by a crazy Memory Rosary. So I guess the answer is no." Alright, this was confusing. Why did a Shinigami care for her well-being? Normally, Shinigami ignored her, even if she killed Hollow or something like that. It perplexed Hinawa, and that was maybe the reason why the voice of the girl wasn't as emotionless and cold as usual. "You are a... Shinigami, correct?" More of a retorical question. "I am Eis."
This might have been her first human she ever contact with, she seem so sad though the bitter air around her. April just smiled just so happily at the girl, it might seem weird but she felt like this girl. Those green eyes were like emeralds and they were piece like refined one indeed. She sounded emotionless but it must have been hard to lose a home to something. April had never heard of the Memory Rosary, nor did she wanted to met one. They seem rather scary enough to chase her back to the soul society. No less, she had to loss Toja-san some way so what better way was it to hide in the presences of weeping girl. "You should not fret. If you need a place to stay we can get one." She smiled happily like a dimwit she was. April didn't even know her name or did she care about it. The maiden only wanted to help those in need of help. Planting her behind down just a few feet apart from her and just looked at the river. The flower really shimmered in the reflection, how come it was always hard to like something so innocent but it could be deadly so far..
Now this was strange. Normally, when someone wanted to help her, they expected her to help them in return. Of course, it was also normal to deny any offered help and requests and freeze the person stupid enough to do so. Well, that was Hinawa for you. But someone asking to help without own intentions in the back hand? Either, the girl with the cold emerald eyes suddenly lost her ability to read in the words of people, or this person here was an airhead. OR... she just wanted to help. But that was such an abstract thought, it didn't even pass through her head long enough to really think it. But still, Hinawa actually felt a bit of pity for April. Helping Hinawa was impossible, even if she would allow someone to do so... "I doubt you would find any place where someone like me can stay." Raising her right hand a bit, a small icicle started to form over it. With a flick of the finger, it flew into the water of the lake, creating a small ice plate, that was flowing down the river rather quickly. "I am not a normal human. In fact, I don't think I am human at all. I'm a monster that doesn't even want a human name anymore." It was a weird feeling for Hinawa, but this person seemed... nice. For sure, a trick. But for a moment... wasn't it good to loose herself at least once in a while in a feeling near to safety...? Her voice regained some emotion - hopelessness. All in all... it was better talking to this woman, than to the Caliga he met last night. That guy had been a total ass beyond belief. While she had to respect how calm he could be, and his strength, his personality just ticked him off. And Claire? Hell, you can't talk to someone who wants to rape you all day long. Just not happening, no. NO.
Of all people, April was that silly airhead who was completely obivilion to other people troubles beside her close friends which is rare to see despite her sweet and kind personality. She will evade others like the 12th division captain because who would want to bump into that crazy man, she didn't ... There was no way you could get April within that room with him, even April was smart enough to stay away from him. Now see April might assume the worst but she could not help but feel bad for Hinawa or Eis such a maiden should never chased out of her own home by some crazy person. Eis seems to rather closed person and needed a hand to rise back upon her horse so she could move once more. April really would not know what happened and how Eis felt right about now, at this point Eis called herself a monster.. "You don't look like a monster to me... You look perfectly fine to me... I think I know where you like to go. It is somewhere in the mountains, it is a protective shine for all but behind it is a priestess house, no one lives here!" A place where Hinawa could be be in peace for a while until Memory Rosary. April's eyes averted to her then to sky that was oh so blue. The place felt so familiar in so many ways but in a way this place also gave her creeps. Something around here didn't seem right at all. April didn't move any closer, but only hoped that this female indeed would stop this attitude and become that flower and blossom.. April's long pink hair just whipped around and she watched the plate of ice just move down the river of sorrow. It was sad enough to be near someone just so confused. Eis Had lost her hope within herself but all she needed was a good friend what will listen and try to help just this once.
Hinawa couldn't believe this woman one bit. How could you be so airheaded? Did she think Hinawa froze the flowers around her on purpose, or something like that? Truely seemed like it. But hey, if she wanted to be blind, fine by the ice girl. Still, it nearly felt wrong to abuse this friendly attitude. But only nearly, because this woman had to learn what real life was. Life was: Not trusting anyone, never believing what you see. That was the nature of the world. Maybe Hinawa was feeling down. Maybe she was pessimistic. But from her point of view, she just saw things the way they where. Just as the ice disappeared from the view, Hinawa looked at April again, with her piercing cold green eyes. "And that's exactly why I am one, Shinigami. A Hollow looks like a monster, right? They have fangs, claws, wings, all that stuff. But in the end... they follow their nature. To kill, and to feed. Predators upon the weaklings called humans." She didn't hold her own kind in high favor, that was for sure. "But I... I kill. And not because I have to. Because I... want to." The piercing ice of her eyes faced back over the river. "You shouldn't be around me... It's safer for you, really. I am not a nice little girl, Shinigami." Standing up, the ice princess raised her right hand and stared into the aura around it. "I am a murderer, cold, ruthless. After death, only hell awaits someone like me. And before death, I'm in a living hell. Thanks for the tip with the house, though... maybe Claire won't show up there."
The phantom was trying to give a vivid hope that most people would desire especially when those who crave such things. April felt rather pathetic but even though something else kept that fire fueled. It was that she thought herself as a monster no less for wanting to kill hollows and maybe a few human hell, it comes to believe that April was not really the righteous females but she wanted what was best for the person no less. She had devoid not like some airhead like she was acting. "No, Human. You don't seem to get it, I might have done worse when I was human like you, but I am now in a place where I belong. I don't remember what I did, nor do I want to but I wanna help you..."April stood up with her back facing Hinawa. She didn't wanna look at this sad girl, if she did, her heart would just break for her. All she was trying to do is be bright light for someone that needed. Not to fight over something as righteous or even judge the poor girl from this world. This is what made April so sweet, she didn't judge nor shun until they regret help no less. Our little pink haired female found this girl to rather pathetic the way she thought of her self. Maybe it was that, maybe Eis wanted to be something important just not that right moment. April just didn't know what to do, she was use to warm places like the Soul Society that maybe April was shunned from the real world."Maybe it is might escape you but you are not a murderer until the day you need to kill, like the Hollows." April told a second to rethink everything that was just spoken. It was not in a nice tone or even a friendly no more, it was cold and broken. The female began to walk along the river leaving the female alone. Was that what she wanted. "Hollows attack everything that moves no less, you don't. You have a choice."
What was this? Hinawas eyes still stared out to the water, as April talked again. Her words where so sweet and nice... without any second thoughts hidden. If Hinawa had suspicions at the beginning of their conversation, they where now slowly swept away, turned into nothing. Shortly after April started to walk away, Hinawa stood up. Some of the frozen flowers gave off a small ringing sound as she did so. Looking at the back of the Shinigami, something happened with Hinawa. Something that didn't happen before in her entire life. The ice in her green eyes, the cold stare that froze the heart of men more like the scream of a Hollow... it disappeared. Without it, a small sparkle was in the eyes of the girl - a girl who never asked for her powers, and didn't deserve her fate. Her left hand clenched over her chest, she felt some warmth inside her... but it wasn't disgusting, like the normal warmth of the sun or the one of warm meals. "W...Wait!" Raising her right hand in a futile attempt, she quickly lowered it again and looked down - realizing that, by touching her, she would hurt the female Shinigami in the end. Eis wasn't strong enough to kill someone like this Vice-Captain, but that wasn't the point. "Could you... tell me your name? You are... the first person to ever care what I feel." Surrounding the scene, the cool, blue-white aura seemed a lot friendlier than at the beginning. Hinawas influence that was given off to the air... lessened. Even the aura around her hands shrunk down.
The man spoke with kinds words so soft enough that it reminded her of her fateful Ex love, Renji no less when he held her so very close. This man could not be another could it? Well she could not bother with simple question that riddled her bubbly mind, for the first time.. This was moment, that April was seen to be serious without turning into that tasteless red eyed monster. Her hand began to stroke the very soft skin of the man's to put the oritment , oh how it called out with goosebumps on his skin. He spoke the words of thankfullness, the red haired female a little in the side wanted to give that bubbly smile that should her own vice-captain. His silver hair smelled that of blood with a pinch of strawberries. A delightful scent indeed but she could not get distracted by such a sigh. ”No problem...”The maiden whispered so silently it could barely be heard but knowing any man they would not have heard it; as she was about to say his haze eyes lifted up her spirit.. Such a figure any man should be proud of and he could not help but want to attract the female. It would have worked but she needed to stay serious. The area was still not the best area to stay around and introduce themselves. Upon her very skin felt those hazel eyes just say upon her body no matter where she was, they were always looking for something wrong. Whatever what was left of males top, was ripped appart by the maiden no less so she didn't have to play the game 'Oh you missed a wound' later.. ”Much better” The gentle female began to aid him, without another word.
He asked her with a tender look about who she was and what division she was from. Oh how the games of play sexy mysterious person and to play it with a sexy man could only per long so many events. Like all people, they always confused the sweetheart captain to be part of the 13th division or even the 4th division due to her sweet tendencies but didn't take how dangerous she was.”You have to find that out for yourself dear....” The male was just going love that reply to the bone, maybe she was bit too much for him. She could not help but want to have him for herself; this was what bait was. A man would looked just too fine for his own good . Her finger just could not help run down his terrible wounds on his back; and could not help but give him a furious look. Her long graceful locks began to shimmer within the little sun that was out and her blue eyes just soften up a bit, her body was always tense to fact they were on earth, the hollow infected area.
Unlike him she didn't wear that silly shinigami outfit, it restricted her from moving faster that she possible could go. These wounds were not as bad as he could have been; so he could have saved himself?! But that look didn't last, it only returned to that calm and tensed poison that could lure anyone towards her. There was not that many silver haired men out there in the Soul Society since the previous 13th division captain which of course, was rare for any man from Japan to obtain such beauty like this. As her figure trickle down his muscular back, his body could not help but be memorizing... Last time she had ever seen man's tight body was of course from her Ex.. He was the only man that she had been with since the Soul Society anything beyond her human years, she could careless right about now. They had a fight and ever since then was just completely awkward. He broke up with her over something of her royal family... 'It was truly something stupid...'
Believe or not April Redwood just sat there just a bit of a daze, he was truly a giant compared to her, but she was a giant to most women. 5'9 was her height but many didn't care if she was tall for redish pink hair, she had everything that every man could ever wanted. A personality to kill for, a body men would just ripe each other up for, and that sweet little housewife that every man wanted. With what was left of his top, she began to rip it to long sherds and tightly wrapping them around his large body, and last but not lease knotting it up in the back. Without a warning the male had a surprise indeed, she leaned forward with her enormous breast constraining onto his back, with her mouth next to his ear, letting the hot breathe sooth his earloaf and run down his very skin. Her small body was nothing compared to his but she could still sent him across to China if she wanted to.. Those tender hands began to pressed against his firm sides, and those lips began to whisper oh so gently into his ear.. ”Well Balmung. I will be seeing you soon... Don't forget to report this to the society...” With that said the maiden disappeared from the area, back to tree she slept in.. Something about that handsome devil was wrong but she could not put her finger on it. Someone must been hoping to archive something from him.. She felt that aura before but this time it was Ichigo..Without another thing was placed onto her mind, April pulled her captain's jacket down from the maple tree... 'Duty calls once more..' Placing her well-fitted captain's jacket, the maiden could help but feel terrible for him, flipping that long hair out of her jacket and began to dance into the wild wilds. Maybe they would meet one day...

There he sat like a moron just staring at the woman his light hazel eyes following her every movement as she continued to move about, when he felt the red haired beauties soft and gentle hands place themselves upon his bare back Balmung's skin got goosebumps. It was such a heavenly feeling, he felt chills run down his back, the woman's hands where not cold like most they where warm and just feeling them as they massaged the woman's magical ointment into his wounds was driving Balmung a bit crazy. He took in a deep but shaky breath as he felt her hands on him, turning away from the woman Balmung hid his blush as he sat there the giant of a man simply enjoying the bliss of having such a beautiful woman touch his body ever so gently. Whoever this woman was, Balmung had to find out he just had to her beauty was mesmerizing one could say that the giant of a shinigami had fallen hard for this woman. He would turn back to face the woman, only to see her eyes had wandered away from him looking down at her he could see that she was in a sort of meditative state, perhaps she was in a moment of deep thought? Then suddenly the woman would speak, she would simply reply with a low whisper though Balmung would not say anything he had heard her reply he merely nodded as he sat there allowing the woman to continue to run her gentle hands through his wounds.
Then the woman would rip Balmung's uniform off at least the top part he allowed her to do so, and even helped as he reached up gripping a hand full of the fabric in his firm hand then pulling down tearing it with little effort. His upper body was now fully revealed, even the way he saw no fat gathered at Balmung's belly it was all muscle and skin the nice six pack he had running down his stomach well visible. The woman seemed serious though Balmung was in a good mood now, he was a bit light hearted at the moment when usually he was a very serious individual he just couldn't get rid of the smile on his face. This woman really had some power over the young Vice Captain it would seem, still seeing the woman so serious made Balmung wonder that perhaps his hopes had gone a bit too high maybe the woman didn't like him the way he liked her. Perhaps she was one of those women that where repelled by muscular and large men, believing them to be simple minded idiots, he turned away letting out a low sigh, so low that he would sincerely doubt the woman would have heard it. But little did the young strapping shinigami know, that the woman was just as if not more mesmerized with Balmung as he was with her, it was just that she was trying to remain professional specially since they where not in a friendly area.
But still he couldn't bare but turn back, he just couldn't keep those light hazel eyes of his off of the woman but it was not just that he was staring at her breast, it was her entire persona that had gotten his attention she was just so beautiful the way her hair flowed from her head down. The way her skin looked, so soft and creamy everything about this woman was just, 'Perfect'would be the word that would run through Balmung's mind. Now it would be around time for the woman to speak her name, Balmung sat there waiting to hear what this red haired beauty called herself by this time one hundred more possibilities for her name would have crossed his mind. But the woman's answer, merely made Balmung chuckle she didn't give a name merely teased the powerfully built shinigami, this brought Balmungs hopes back up perhaps he was wrong maybe the woman was slightly interested in him. Why else play such a silly game with a random stranger? 'So thats the game we're playing? Well this should be interesting indeed'the thought ran through his mind as a smirk stayed on his face, maybe the woman was not as serious as she wanted to make herself seem. Perhaps she was trying to be professional in a serious situation, perhaps there was something there, something between these two shinigami and if there was Balmung was determined to make sparks fly.
Finally the woman was finished her hands would remove themselves from Balmung's wounds, he would be rather disappointed he was enjoying himself he was going to miss those soft and gentle hands. But he wouldn't have to miss them for too long, before he knew it he got a bit more then he had longed for the woman leaned forward to whisper in Balmungs ear. But he felt it all in such detail, and it felt like the woman was pressed up against him for an eternity though just a few seconds, her large soft breast pressing against his bare and well muscled back. Those soft hands once again upon his person, pressing at his sides and finally the woman's mouth was at his ear her warm breath crashing onto his ear lobe this sent chills down the shinigami's back. Not only that it made him turn a deep red, as his light hazel eyes rolled to the side to see the woman's face, with a look of surprise on his face. The woman whispered into his ear, then vanished just as mysteriously as she had appeared to save his sorry ass she had vanished.
Nonetheless that woman had just made one of the biggest shinigami physically in Soul Society melt, like a boy being touched by a woman for the very first time. Balmung could still feel her warm breath on his ear, he could feel where her hands had been and he felt where her large breast had pressed against him. The tall shinigami sat there for a few moments thinking to himself the blush from his face fading away, a smile on his face at first he believed the woman to not be interested, then he believed her to have some interested, but after what just happened he was one hundred percent positive that the woman was definitely interested. Balmung jumped up to his feet tightening his hands into closed fists, as his forearm muscles tightened defining themselves a bit more. "Red haired beauty! I will find out your name and find out who you are, and I will make you mine!" he would say in his deep tone of voice, with a lot of confidence coming from it as well, the woman had done it she had made Balmung fall for her. He stood with his upper body bared, and exposed the sun beating down on his lightly tanned body his muscles fully defined and visible how could the woman not fall for him as well? Finally it was time to return to Soul Society, and report the incident in at the same time he would ask for the woman's identity he reached down picking up his zanpaktou by the hilt and slipping it into its sheath.
After doing so Balmung would open a Senkai Gate in front of him, the wooden doors slid open the blindingly bright light shining outwards he had gotten used to it by now and simply stepped into the Senkai Gate.....
Balmung would arrive in Soul Society rather quickly, such was the convenience of a Senkai Gate quick transportation from point A to point B once there he was greeted by a few of his fellow squad mates and some women where checking out the tall and now shirtless shinigami. He merely walked past the women ignoring them, normally he would've stopped and started a conversation but he had eyes only for the woman he had named the 'Red haired beauty' making his way out of the arrival area he went to his squad barracks. Walking down towards his office, he couldn't help but think of the woman all of her features ran through his mind, and the warmth of her body when it was pressed against his. That sexy voice whispering into his ear, Balmung finally made it to his office sliding the door open he stepped on in, taking a seat he let out a sigh as he reached for a blank paper it was time to fill the mission report. Captain Arashi was not going to be happy to hear three squad members where slaughtered, but perhaps the captain knew the woman's identity all the captains did know one another after all. Balmung reached for his pen and began to write up the report, once it was done he sent it out having one of the lower seated officers take it up to the captains office for review. He leaned back on his chair resting his hand on his hands, by putting them behind his head "Red haired beauty....what is your name?" he would ask himself looking out of his window and up to the clouds as he smiled just by remembering her presence it made him feel happy.
