"Who is she?" Byakuya कहा calmly to Keisuki alone down in the practice field below the shop. "Ah who do आप mean? I mean there's so many..." His voice became a whisper as he met the captain's eyes. He frowned. Byakuya's eyes were changing color and not into the nice and sunny colors. Nope, not at all. Shit. With the way they were turning he was about to see just what a Soul Smith's other half was capable of when barrowing the powers. Not that Kuchiki was even aware of any of this. Which was dangerous, for both of them. Did she know? She'd have to know. Which meant if he told the man in front of him, she'd most likely have to kick Byakuya's ass.... No. Even if he wanted to see that kind of fight, it was the wrong time. Definitely the wrong time. "Well, who do आप think she is?" For the first time since the younger man was a child, he saw him break his normal unemotional stature. His face became a snarl as his nails scrapped on the antique तालिका, टेबल until they made themselves fists. "Byakuya, she's gone. She traded herself, her word is her bond. Not even us, her family can go against her." Mira along with most of the Hoard, new members included merely arrived beside the table. "How did आप get down here?"Keisuki कहा shocked. Marz and Set stepped up to the plate. Set folded her arms and growled at the captain. "How could आप let her be taken! Do आप know how sick those bastards are? If that freak..." Horus clamped a hand on Set's mouth. "Women they can't seem to handle their liquor, especially when they are so small and still getting over jet lag!" Set gave him a dirty look and bit the hand that covered her mouth. Horus cringed but clamped his hand tighter. "Look we've known her for a long time. She's not able to be killed, no matter what they do to her, she'll be alright." Marz rolled his eyes and looked into the reaper's eyes... they were nearly black. He was her mate.
"You're her mate." And the world exploded. Marz caught the blade with his own. "What do आप mean द्वारा mate?" Marz paled. "You didn't know? How could आप not know?" Keisuki stepped in. "Because she didn't tell him...Well she may have दिया him heavy hints." Byakuya's eyes narrowed at him. "Those dreams आप told me about, आप कहा it was as if she was teaching आप about her people. There's only one reason why she would."
Byakuya eased and turned away from everyone. "So, we are to be man and wife?" Mira coughed. "Not if she does not deem it. In 5 years, she will die...."
"DIE! I Don't want her to die! " Karen screamed, as tears flowed like torrents down her cheeks. Flack caught her before she could rush in completely. "Shhh little one. This is what she wants. That way she can be with him and finally be forgiven her greatest sin."
"Sh..She was 8 years old! What promise could she have made to drag her into any of this! Dad! Dad tell me आप can do something about this! Please Dad!" Her father opened up his arms and Flack gave her over. "Please Dad!" She whispered in his ear. He hugged her tightly. "If there was a way Keisuki would know of one. If there isn't then we have 5 years to wait...by that time we had better have found her sword. If not if the mask finds her and we are too late, the hollow will निगलना, निगल, निगल संकलन her completely and with her powers she'll be unstoppable with only one option." Byakuya gave Issin a sideways glance. "How do आप know?" Mira कहा sliding out her daggers. "Because my nana would pay me in snacks and trinkets whenever I found anything having to do with the mythical people of the Valley of Flowers. He had found it ironically in a romance novel his wife had had when she was young. He had taken it, but the novel had been already near 50 years old and fragile. His nana, he still could see her face overjoyed at having such a treasure. "She loved compiling anything having to do with them. Until recently I thought they were just some fairy tale she was obsessed with. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. If she really is a Soul Smith, the last of her kind, she has..." Flack coughed. "She hasn't had her powers in over 3000 years and yes I know she has some of them but all...those would take time to get back online. She's not a light switch, and with her guilt...she won't use them. Not to save anyone, then again, they've only ever wanted her. With her under foot now she will bargain for the other's freedom. Mom will withhold if they don't, and they will want what she has. So even in the enemies' hands she'll aid anyone she can."
Jamie clung to her fear as a teddy bear, close to her hearts. Each door they passed she could sense other lives hanging in the balance. "You've been busy, its impressive for the short time that you've been here. How long have आप been here?" The woman behind her laid a hand on Jamies hip. "Oh, if आप want answers, you'll have to anie up." Jamie shivered. Hunchback barked at them from down the hall. "Hmph, even now, he's your friend. He says he'll kill me since it was due to my desire to have आप that started the आग the last time. True, very true. I'll have to wait til Ice is done with आप and that will take at least 5 years. But we have eternity, so 5 years isn't much in the way of things." The woman kissed the nape of her neck and kicked her to the Hunchback who snapped at his counterpart as he gripped Jamie up द्वारा the arm and half carried her into the room where Ice waited for them.
