Decisions to be Made
"Hado! Shakahou!" The energy blast went sailing at Ikkaku who slashed it with his blade and came charging in, typical style for him. Though it seemed the more I trained with him, the more so it became my style too, Squad eleven's style. I leapt, doing a light leap over him and letting loose another blast. He dodged, changing his step to weave in closer.
"Ha! At this rate you'll never make draw out my Zanpaktou!" he teased as he made several quick slash at me, the last of which I barely dodged; I was fighting unarmed, only with Kido and close quarters hand to hand. I zipped around and gave myself some distance, my casting was good, but I needed some power with this one.
((*Note, Spell castings are not correct, just to show how power is linked))
"From the Heaves to earth, coursing from from feet to my fingers-"
"LIKE HELL!" Ikakkou shouted as flashed stepped closer, but just a second too late.
"Hado number 4, Byakurai!" A bolt of pure lighting came casting from my fingers directly at him. He dodged up high into the air, falling into my next trap. I aimed carefully, calling a defensive type of Kido, called Bakudo.
"Bakudo number 21: Sekienton!" A ninja cloud of red smoke came and exploded around Ikkakou, and he proceeded to cough, disorientated as my position became lost. I moved quickly again while I was still obscured.
"Bakudo Number 9:Geki" As the smoke cleared, I had managed to trap him in a thin layer of red light that surrounded his body, immobilizing him. I raised my other hand.
"What now, fair friend? Hado Number four:Bayakurai!" The lighting bolt came crashing at him, and I smiled as I heard his next words.
"Damn it! Come forth, Hozokimaru!" He managed to break my hold and dodge, his reiastu flaring up. His base sword now evolved into a pole arm with a blade on the tip, able to split into three sections. I knew this would prove troublesome if he got close.
"Hahaha, and you said I wouldn't be able to do it! Now if only I could make you release your Bankai."
He snorted. "And what makes you think you...damn it, damn damn damn damn!"
I chortled and flash stepped away. I had what I needed, plus, angry Ikkaou fights better than a mellow one.
See, what had happened as he had broken rule number two of Squad eleven, never reveal your true power in the presence of your squad members. I head off to Mina to heal up. For the most part I had managed to dodge, but early in he had gotten me pretty well across the back, and my healing Kido was wearing off.
"You know, you really must stop training like this, your going to get yourself killed!" Mina chided as she healed my wounds in Squad four barracks.
"Yes yes, but it's necessary, I must get stronger. His skin is as tough as nails."
"Only to those afraid...but..." her voice softened.
"Are you still going after him? Can you not find it in your heart to forgive before it is too late?"
I sighed, I loved Mina like family, but this was beginning to put a thorn in that. I didn't like it...but my resolve was made up.
"I must. Revenge must be taken. I can't believe you would just let that go."
"Some things must be let go, lest another life be lost."
"Only one will be lost, and that will be that-"
She pressed lightly on my shoulders, someone had entered, Zaraki.
"There you are, Mazzy Kun!" Yachiru, Kenpachi's every vibrant vice captain. "Kenny San wants you for a mission! He said to get off your lazy *** and get to fighting!" It was almost cute, and she bounded off.
"Well, there goes my day," I said, getting off the table.
"But your wounds, I'm not finished yet!"
"I'll be fine, I'll be careful not to open them. Goodnight Mina."
I was almost out of the room, before she spoke, a soft voice.
"Find it in your hear heart Mazari."
I stopped, but did not turn. "I'll try."
But that was a lie, and I feel she knew it.
