    Canvas of the misfortune

    I can't express the joy this has given me today.

    The End

    It was 3:10 early Friday Morning. Takeru Kuna hadn't slept since he last saw Narutaki in the backseat of the transport vehicle. He spent countless hours focused on the computer screen that sat before him., studying and perfecting the research notes. This research would give him the edge against his old friend Tetsuya. He was so very close. So much so that he could see the metaphorical light at the end of the tunnel. There was just a bit more than he needed to do. One last hurdle he needed to cross before he could achieve his goal. He took a long sip of coffee before he returned his icy gaze over to the computer screen once more. He was on borrowed time and he knew it. He had to get this completed before Tetsuya discovered he was in this dimension. Tetsuya was an arrogant man and that arrogance would keep him under the radar for the moment. Regardless, things would be....problematic if he was found before it was ready. The contracts from the business Narutaki gave his daughter and the Arrancar he conned into dealing with Tetsuya would only keep him occupied for so long. His finger hovered over the enter button momentarily before he decides to watch the footage once more. Finally pressing the enter button, the video began to run. A man, one of the employees of the technology subdivision of Hikari Incorporated, stood in the middle of the room. Sweat beaded from his face as he stood ready to test out what they believed to be the next development in fighting the supernatural of this dimension for those other than Tetsuya who received contracts. The man had been selected in secret; the promise of a substantial bonus his reward for his cooperation. Little did he know, he would never receive such a bonus. "Are you ready?" a voice rang out in the video. The man nodded and gave a thumbs-up as he placed a piece of equipment around his waist. "Viral cores initiated. All readings are currently in the green. Go ahead and begin the procedure." the man picked up the blue gun Narutaki gave Takeru and slide a blank card in a slot on the side. A small rhythmic hum began to emanate from it as blue streaks of energy begins to crackle around him. "Increase the power.." Takeru's voice ran out from the video as a technician on the side does exactly that. Soon the man begins to writhe in pain, screaming at the top of his lungs as he drops to his knees. Sweat drips profusely from the man's face, blood slowly dripping from every opening that it could. "Sir?! We should stop. He'll turn at this rate." A voice rang out. "Keep it going!" Takeru demanded as the technician reluctantly increases the power. More and more energy is poured into the system as the screams from the man begin to turn feral. His body shakes violently. Getting on his hands and knees, the man screams one final time as a white substance oozes from his face. With each tremble his body made, it began to steadily grow larger in size. His clothes were shredded in the process. Fur sprouted from his body, a blackened hole forming in the center of his chest. The white substance that oozed across his face began to harden and take on a canine-like appearance. The screams slowly turned into howls as the gun is tossed on the ground, sliding towards Takeru. The men in the lab start to panic, a feral creature slowly forming in front of their eyes. Takeru simply stood and watched the spectacle in front of him, not wavering for a moment. The transformation was soon complete, the man was replaced by a ravenous beast with only the desire to feed on its mind. It lunged for the closest individual, swiping a large portion of his body away with a single strike. Another man bolted for the exit but was met with a similar fate. It picked them all off one by one with teeth and claws until only it and Takeru remained. A ravenous growl was heard as it slowly lurched towards the man with ill intent. Takeru stood with his hands firmly jammed in his pockets, now seemingly annoyed with the scene that had just transpired. With impressive speed, the beast lunged towards Takeru, lifting him and pinning him against the wall. It moved its head mere inches away from Takeru as it growled viciously; thick heaps of saliva dripping down its maw. "Yet another failure," Takeru spoke at least as he pulled a small device from his pocket. With a press of a button, the piece of equipment that remained on the beast exploded, taking its lower body with the controlled blast. The explosion caused the beast to drop Takeru as it fell to the ground, dead. The video feed soon cut out, Takeru with an even more annoyed look on his face. "Yesterday's test was a failure, just like the rest of them. Not truly hollow but not truly human either. I need to come up with a better solution as I'm beginning to run out of subjects. If I waste any more time with this, he'll end up finding me. I just seem to be missing one binding component." He furrows his brow and begins to once again look at the notes, meticulously scanning all of the complied information. It doesn't take look for him to be once again lost in his thoughts, so much so that he does not hear the door creak open behind him. An audible thump is heard as a hand is slammed on the desk. "What is it, Ms. Asuna?" Takeru says to his assistant without looking up from his paperwork. "You are going to be late. The showing is today, remember?" "Is that today?" he mutters. The woman smiled as the man sneered, scattering the paperwork in annoyance. Today was a demonstration for some of the new tech the technology department was developing. Unfortunately, Narutaki neglected to mention that he would have to attend a few of these to keep up the facade. Takeru silently curses the man before rising out of his seat. "When is this showing?" he replied as he walked towards the exit. "It's in one hour. Mr. Hojo will be the main presenter. You'll just have to be there to keep up appearances. Most won't even know you are there." "Fine..." Takeru grumbled. His mind was still lingering on the research. He wondered just what this missing piece could be. Narutaki only said Human and Hollow DNA but obviously that was a lie. Irritated, Takeru exits the door and heads down to prepare for the showing. "Soon old friend. We'll meet." WC: 1,132

    The End

    The rhythmic pitter-patting of footsteps could be heard marching into an abandoned warehouse as a storm rumbled overhead. A group of twelve soldiers marched through the rain with rifles trained at the ready. Each soldier was outfitted in similar attire. Long, black, double-breasted trench coats with shoulder straps. The coat is bound at the waist with an ivory belt and a lavishly decorated buckle with the symbol of a bald eagle clutching the world within its talons. All of this is worn over a pair of black trousers and tightly tied trench boots. One soldier had an eagle insignia adorned on his back with a golden star in the middle. This man was the leader of this group of black-op soldiers. They quickly fill the warehouse by twos, one for each side. They stay close to each other with their backs practically hugging up against the wall. One by one, each of them equip special goggles to get a better opportunity to spot their awaiting prey. From above, their target quickly moves around in the shadows. Its beady yellow eyes darting from beam to beam with the greatest of ease. The creature is worried and afraid but determined. Determined to feast on a meal and quell, if only for a fleeting moment, its insatiable hunger. It wants to stop these men at any costs but most importantly, it is determined to survive. A quick bolt of lightning from outside briefly illuminates the warehouse, causing one of the soldiers to spot the creature above. "The target is up on the ceiling!" he yells as he fires a barrage of bullets towards the creature's direction. The others quickly follow suit, covering a large area of the roof in bullets. The sound of rainfall is quickly engulfed by the sounds of shell casings hitting the floor. After a solid minute, the firing stops. The guns still smoke in their hands as they begin to move around and form up in search of what they hope to be a dead body. Still in formation, they walk before a blur streaks in front of the leader's face. His audibly startled gasp causes them all to stop dead in their tracks., holding up their weapons for round two. A scream of pain and anguish rings out, this time from behind the group. They quickly begin to move back and attempt to figure out just who the sound came from. Taking a few steps forward, one of them feels his foot stepping into something wet. The group could hear ravenous chewing coming from the other side of the room. The sickening sound of something being crunched upon. A lump formed in the leader's throat. He knew what had transpired. Another bolt of lighting from outside revealed what they all feared. Someone in the back of the group had been caught off guard from behind. One single swipe from the creature was all that was necessary to end his life and claim his head. Now, the creature sat feasting the spoils of its victory, fulfilling one of its goals. Its ivory white mask covered in splatters of crimson blood, grinning at the soldiers with fiendish delight. "Fire at will men!' the lead soldier says as they begin to pepper the creature with a barrage of bullets. The bullets, unfortunately, have little effect on the creature's tough exterior but it does manage to slow it down. It slowly backs away, giving the remaining eleven soldiers time to surround it in a U-shape. It backs itself firmly up against a wall, attempting to swipe at any advancing soldier to keep their distance. The creature was no fool. It knew that it only needed to bide its time until the bullets ran out. From there, it would be child's play to finish them all off one by one. All twelve would serve as a glorious feast. "Switch to the RXR rounds immediately." The leader flicks a small switch on the upper right portion of his rifle as the weapon begins to hum slightly. Suddenly, the bullets firing from the weapon glow blue, moving at an increased speed. These rounds, compared to the others, begin to rip into the flesh of the creature who howls in pain. Each soldier quickly flicks the switch on their riles as the inside of the warehouse is illuminated in a blue-ish glow. The creature is pelted from all sides from the gunfire, hole after hole being blasted into its body. A few seconds pass and the creature slumps to the ground, near lifeless. The leader holds his right hand upward, signaling a stoppage of gunfire. All still have their guns trained on the creature in the event it akes any sort of movement. From behind, three military vehicles pull up to the entrance of the warehouse. The back door of the middle vehicle opens as a bright purple umbrella emerges. A pair of pristine black loafers step out on the wet concrete as a man closes the door, umbrella firmly in hand. His jet-black hair drips a few drops of water from the raindrops that manage to get by his umbrella. His black coat dangles just above the wet ground as he makes his way forward. Each step is slow and meticulous. Taking in all the dreary scenery with his calculating eyes. As he walks inside of the warehouse, he closes his umbrella and uses it as a makeshift cane. His footsteps echo above the pattering rain as the soldiers part to let him through, guns still trained on the target. The man reaches the group of soldiers, handing the captain his umbrella as he takes a better look at the nearly deceased creature. "Would you like to use my googles to see the creature?" the captain says inquisitively. "No need. I can see its magnificent figure just fine without." the man says sharply. He stands in awe of the wounded creature before him. "It's breathtaking...isn't it?" Breathtaking to behold such a magnificent creature like this." He says after a long pause in between. He starts to kneel down and get a better look at the creature but stops himself. An old saying rings in his head. "Never taunt a wounded animal." Relenting for a more appropriate approach, he pulls a PDA from within his coat and begins to scan the creature. "It is Adjuchas level and was nearing its completion of Vasto Lorde. Probably would have had it finished you all off. A shame you didn't let that happen." "An A Ranked hollow? This was one of the easier ones we've fought. Mind you, we lost a good soldier but the target went down fairly easy." The Captain pipes up. He was quite fond of his work, quite fond of the job he and his team performed. The thrill of the hunt. Protecting humanity from these abominations. One measly life was necessary for what he believed would be the salvation of billions. "I'm glad you cling so closely to fantasy, Captain. Try not to dabble too closely into delusion, however. The harsh realities of the world may scare you." He glances up at the Captain and gives a small, yet snide smirk before returning his attention to his PDA. "I've watched the entire battle from the chips installed in your goggles. The same device that allows you to see and combat spiritual creatures such as this. You all were falling right into its trap. It's backing up was not to get away from you but to corral you all in one spot. Had you waited just one more minute to use the Reishi X-tinction Rounds, you would have been all killed during the reloading process. Either as brutally as your colleague was or instantaneous by a cero. Had you used the rounds from the start, it would have adjusted and changed its strategy accordingly. I know what you are probably thinking and no, it was not a sound battle strategy. What you experienced was dumb luck that just happened to work out in your favor. You still do not truly know what you are up against." Taking the umbrella back from the Captain's surprised hand, he removes the false bottom to reveal a small needle. Purple fluid dripped from the tip of the needle as he injects the liquid into the creature. It gives a small groan before it returns to its labored breathing. The creature's eyes glaze over before closing. "A pity. Even now, you do not realize the danger you were just in. According to the data, this creature had regenerative capabilities. With each passing second, it slowly regrew the damaged tissue. It would not have been long before the creature regained enough strength to strike again. Likely a suicide attack. Luckily, the special agent I've injected into its bloodstream will sedate and use the regenerative capabilities against it. The body, however, will be preserved for transport." The Captain stands mystified at the mistake that nearly cost him his own life. The man chuckles at the Captain's revelation and finishes collecting his required data. Slipping the PDA back into his pocket, he opens his umbrella and walks back to the waiting vehicles. A few men from the larger vehicle in the back, quickly file inside the warehouse with a large container to store the now sedated creature within. As they pass the man, he stops and stares out into the darkness in front of him. "Good job Captain," he says coyly. "You've been a great help in amassing all of the pieces I required. You have my thanks. I'll report the completion of your mission to Ms. Hikari." "Thank you, Mr. Kuna." The Captain responds as he and his soldiers salute the departing trucks. In the backseat, the man rifles through the data stored on his PDA, uploading that to the monitor on the right side. As he types on the keyboard, the monitor in front of him pulls up the files of the Captain and all of his team. A red 'X' is placed on the one deceased member as the man studies their files intently. His eyes dart from file to file before he shuts the monitor off and stares out at the streets around him. "I'm surprised you didn't bring me to this dimension sooner. It would not have come to this. However, it's quite impressive what you've done in this short amount of time. This entire empire, all of this equipment, just to appease your daughter and secretly settle your vendetta against him." Narutaki sits beside him, staring out in the vast darkness the window provided. "She is my little girl, it is only necessary I give her things to make her happy. Which is why Decade needs to be dealt with. He is dangerous. Given your history with him, I called you at the right time. If I called you before I set this up, he would have discovered you. With his arrogance, he'll never suspect you to be here installed in the empire he believes is his. The Arrancar will distract him until you are ready. Until it is ready." He places a gray briefcase that sat by his leg on the man's lap, never removing his gaze from the window. "The creatures of this dimension are truly astonishing. Such hubris they have. Human and Hollow DNA should be the final catalyst you need in order to use what is in this case." "Anything to see my old buddy again." Listening to Narutaki's words, the man opens up the briefcase, revealing a blue gun with golden accents. Cards, similar to the ones Tetsuya uses, lay beside it. He marvels at the sight, slowly moving his hand to touch the weapon. "Don't forget our deal, Diend." WC: 1,958

    Devil's Requiem

    Tetsuya stands out in front of a massive high-rise building in the heart of Naruki City with his mouth agape. Rinko, exiting from the car they arrived in, casually places her hand on his lower jaw and closes his mouth with a smile. It was a very rare sight to see Tetsuya in a state of bewilderment. Seeing him like that was akin to a unicorn sighting. Only made possible by Rinko. "How? How in the hell did you manage this?" Tetsuya finally manages to say as he points to the building in front of them. The ivory building towered over everything in the area, its size rivaling that of similar towers in New York City. Its stell framework and polished glass made the building glimmer in the sunlight. The name "Hikari Incorporated" was emblazoned on the front of the building in blue sitting just above the entrance. "What the hell did you do?" Rinko smiles and grabs Tetsuya by the hand, quickly attempting to lead him inside. "You said that you wanted to meet the spiritual entities that inhabited this dimension right? Well, now you have the means to do so." She quickly ushers him inside the building with a particular skip in her step. Inside, Tetsuya sees numerous people hard at work. Some were furiously typing on computers, others mingled with idle small talk. "Good Afternoon, Mr. Kataoka. Ms. Hikari." one man says as he carries a stack of paperwork to his cubicle. Others wave as they pass by; Tetsuya still dumbfounded by what he is seeing. "How?" he repeats again as the two reach an elevator. "If I told you, you'd get angry. Let's just say I called in a favor." Tetsuya audibly groaned as the elevator closed, instantly recognizing the source of her favor. As she predicted, Tetsuya was pissed. "Your father again?! You are aware Narutaki has likely employed the Arrancar I told you about to kill me right? If he is so deadset on killing me, why is he trying to help?" Rinko sighs as she presses the button to the top floor, ignoring the seething Tetsuya standing beside her. "He's not trying to kill you per se. He just wants you to stop destroying things. Plus this was a gift for me. It just so happens that you are receiving the benefits of said gift." "The man has literally said that he wants me dead! Besides, you help me making the determining decisions on whether or not I destroy dimensions." Rinko dismissively waves her hand as the elevator opens to the top floor, exiting it with a skip. "Eh, don't sweat the small stuff. It's fine," she replies as she beckons Tetsuya to come forward. "You and your family are insane," Tetsuya mutters as he enters the new room. The new room was dimly lit with monitors and computer equipment in every corner. In the back of the room was a door with the words 'Boss" in pink lettering. The small number of people in the room quickly rose to their feet when the two of them arrived. Rinko waves at them before entering the door to the next room. Tetsuya could only say one thing as he walks inside. The room was predictably decorated in things that Rinko liked. The walls were light blue and an impressively large desk sat in the back. "Incredible," Tetsuya says condescendingly as he shakes his head. Rinko sits down behind the desk in the room and smiles. "Hikari Incorporated! You name it. We kill it... Well, you kill it but you get the point." "You...you created an extermination business? How the hell does killing bugs help?" "It's not bug extermination silly. It's more of a hitman for hire type deal. All of the workers, all of the equipment is to help monitor and detect spiritual beings that enter this native dimension. With this, I figure you can use this to get in contact with other spiritual races in this dimension you haven't met. Once you find them, and hopefully stay on their good side, they can contact you for jobs. Kill the things they can't...or won't. You learn more about them and figure out if they are worth erasure. Plus I get money out of it. Everyone wins." Tetsuya could only shake his head. While the motive was purely for her, he had to realize that it was a rather ingenious plan. For once, he had to thank Narutaki for something though he'd never do it. For the time being, he had to focus on other matters. "We are changing the name of it." "Not a chance." WC: 771

    Devil's Requiem

    Tetsuya takes off with all of his speed as he moves so fast that his form begins to blur. A loud clap could be heard echoing as he shoots through the sky. The woman stands with her sword at the ready, awaiting her foe's new form. As soon as the armored warrior comes within ten feet of the woman, he disappears. She wonders where he has gone, briefly letting her guard down for a moment. It is at that moment she feels herself being pushed towards the right. Gradually at first but she is soon sent tumbling down towards the ground. Blood flows freely from a gash on the side of her face thanks to Tetsuya's sword. Not wanting to give the woman an inch to breathe, he charges directly towards her and delivers a swift kick to her left side. The sheer power from the kick is so great that it manages to crack a few of her ribs and nearly pierces her lungs. On instinct, she manages to grab his leg and hold it against her body, effecting trapping Tetsuya in the motion. With a noticeable struggle, she charges energy around her sword and attempts to bring it down in order to sever his leg. At the last second, Tetsuya easily parries the strike with his Daidaimaru sword, counterattacking with such force that she is sent careening down to the ground below. The sound of the sickening thud on impact echoes. She coughs up blood as her body lay underneath the rubble. Her vision was blurry. Her body felt as if it were on fire. She likely had multiple broken bones and fractures but it did not matter. Nothing mattered but one thing. She had to kill him. She needed to kill him. He had to feel the same pain that she felt. The same loss that she experienced. She gave in to despair and temptation. Her spiritual pressure spikes, sending a column of energy up towards the sky and blowing away the rubble that covered her. She appeared from the rubble changed. Her body had gone through yet another transformation of sorts. The armor changed into something more akin to a full bodysuit. All revealing parts were now covered and adorned with spikes. A skull-like helmet covered her head with a thin black line where the mouth would be. "How very hollow-like," Tetsuya mentioned as he lands on the ground. He sighed deeply as he realized how this battle would end. She was beyond saving. He begins to charge forward towards the woman, his footsteps blending in with the rainfall. Without giving her time to react once he neared her, he delivers a sickening kick to the jaw, sending her into a building behind them. The force from the kick is enough to bring the rest of the building down around her, burying her within yet another pile of rubble. He quickly appears above the rubble, pulling her limp body up from the ground. Low guttural growls escape from her masked head, confirming what Tetsuya already knew. The thin line begins to expand and split open as another golden ball of energy starts to form. Tetsuya, not wanting to be hit by the attack yet again, lets her body go and slams the butt of his sword against her chin. The ball of energy implodes on impact as smoke escapes from the sides of the cracks. "Time to end this game." Tetsuya flicks the blade-like switch on his belt once more and as orange energy focuses around his blade. "Attack Ride: Gaim! Orange Squash!" the belt announces as Tetsuya unleashes five series of slashes towards the woman. The orange energy strikes from the sword take the appearance of orange slices as they all explode upon contact. This was only the surface level of his full power but he hoped that it proved a point. The difference in their power was like night and day. Heaven and Hell. Her body collapsed to the ground, the armor and power soon fading away. Her breathing was labored but she slowly began to stand. With a struggle, she attempted to make her way towards Tetsuya. As she slowly sticks her arm out, she begins to fall over. Tetsuya quickly catches her falling body in his arms. She glances at him, eyes glazed over, and begins to speak. "I did it. I managed to kill him. I can finally be at peace with you. My love." As those final words leave her lips, her body crumbles away leaving only a small card with a picture of an armored gauntlet on it. As Tetsuya begins to examine the card, he notices that it begins to crumble as well. "Damn. No leads," he mutters. "Seems that she used too much power and burned her life force away. A shame that the card went with her. Humans are such fragile creatures." Tetsuya turns to see a man floating a good distance away from him flanked by two others. A man who had his arms crossed and seemed ready to cleave Tetsuya's head off at the first opportunity and a woman who clutched a small black box. He could feel that same sensation emanating from the man who watched him with a smirk as he stroked his beard. This was the one he sought. "I assume you three are the ones who set this up?" Tetsuya says as he reverts to his normal magenta form. "Perhaps. I now understand what Narutaki sees in you. What he fears about you. You are truly a fearsome man." Tetsuya quickly moves to attack but his sword strike is easily blocked by the hulking brute of the group. "You fucking killed my kid," he mentions as he strikes Tetsuya down with a closed fist. Tetsuya tumbles to the ground, quickly regaining his footing to prepare for a counterattack. "So they were behind the attack from before." he thinks as he clutches his sword once more. To his surprise, he sees the trio opening a portal behind them. "Our time will soon come. For now, enjoy your victory. We'll be seeing you, Decade." The woman nonchalantly waves as the portal closes behind them, leaving Tetsuya alone with his thoughts once more. "That was obviously one of those Garganta the hollows use. I can only assume that they were Arrancar. What the hell has Narutaki cooked up this time?" The armor around him dissipates as Tetsuya dusts himself off. The woman was a dangerous opponent, he could only imagine what they would produce next. As he begins to get lost in his thoughts, his phone rings once more. Knowing full well who is calling, he answers. "Get back here now. Your surprise is ready." WC: 1,122 Expert Level Gafu achieved

    Devil's Requiem

    The rain rhythmically splashed against the ground, the thunder echoing in between blows. Both Tetsuya and the woman traded shot after shot, each being impressed by the other's strength and resolve. Neither was concerned as they were both holding back their true power. She wanted to save it until the very end, hoping to crush him with her full power. She had mastered it to such a degree where it's spiritual pressure easily dwarfed what Tetsuya was currently displaying. Tetsuya, on the other hand, had a slightly different goal in mind. He was not planning on releasing his full power at all; he didn't believe he needed to do so. She could grow in power for as long as she possibly wanted and it would serve no purpose. The end would be the same as it is for everyone else who dared to fight; she would fall to his true might. His sword was the only thing he would need to draw out. That alone was solely due to the fact that he respected her fortitude for even challenging him. Warped or not, her determination was impressive. Most would have remained where they were and cowered at the scene before them. Most would not have had the resolve to train and gain this power. The resolve to put an end to this was the only reason he drew his blade. However, the magenta warrior would soon come to regret the decision to hold back his power as she begins to slowly push him back with her attacks. Her strikes became more and more intense, putting all of her strength and then some into each attack. The two strikes simultaneously, a violent torrent of wind kicks up. The trees and debris surrounding them blow away from the strike. It seems, if only for a fleeting moment, that the rain stops as well. The two slide back, both at the ready for whatever comes next. Her clothes are slightly ripped from the battle, a small but heavily bleeding gash on her forehead. Tetsuya was surprisingly winded by the woman's relentless attacks, a true testament to her power. She was out of breath but still determined to battle, opting to reveal her secret weapon now. She really didn't want to release it right now, opting to torture and humiliate him for taking her happiness away. Unfortunately, she saw no other alternative. This senseless clashing was getting her nowhere, only serving to drain her powers. As much as she would rather not, she had to finish this battle now. She closes her eyes as blue reiatsu begins to swirl around her. It coats her body, eventually hardening with an appearance similar to her gauntlet. A burst of energy envelopes her, dissipating soon after to reveal her in body armor, not unlike Tetsuya's. It was skin tight and rather revealing, a golden gray body armor that was quite durable despite its appearance. Her bladed gauntlet had a more regal appearance to it with golden accents running alongside the blade. The new transformation and its familiarity surprised Tetsuya but he remained unfazed. She gives a slight smirk as she points her sword towards Tetsuya once more, a golden ball of energy forming at the tip. In a split second, the ball of energy fires off, taking huge chunks of the ground as it does so. The Armored warrior does not realize the power behind the blast until it is too late; narrowly dodging but still taking a large brunt of the attack. The shock-wave from the blast still knocks the warrior back as the woman takes off after him. She begins to rapidly hack and slash with her sword, following up each attack with another as Tetsuya bounces off the ground like a basketball. She increases her speed to get in front of him as she delivers a powerful rising kick to the back of his head. The sheer force from the blow is enough to send Tetsuya flying high into the clouds. She chuckles as she appears in front of the armored warrior as she flew upward, her hand opened and another golden ball of energy charging. She releases the energy ball as it makes a sound aking to a sonic boom. As it nears Tetsuya, the look of anger and annoyance behind his helmet says it all. The mass of energy explodes, as the woman lands on the ground thinking her job is completed. Turning around, she begins to leave but is stopped by the overwhelming force of spiritual pressure. She turns around to see Tetsuya floating in the air, untouched aside from her earlier barrage. He could feel that his lip was bleeding, the taste of his blood was an unexpected development. He was irritated and yet elated that he now had to exert some of his true power. It was time to remove some of the handicaps. Since her new form heavily involved swordplay, he would counter with some of his own. Materializing a card, he quickly inserts it in the top of his belt. "Kamen Ride: Gaim!" the belt announces. A small crack appears above Tetsuya as orange energy begins to swirl around him. A large lock in the shape of an orange fruit appears from the crack. The orange energy disperses as it reveals Tetsuya clad in blue and yellow light armor. A smaller version of the fruit lock appears in Tetsuya's hand which he places in the form's new belt. Flicking the blade-like switch on the belt, the larger orange lock splits open and covers his upper body. "Soiya! Orange Arms! Hanamichi on Stage!", the belt announces. Orange energy swirls around Tetsuya once more as he is revealed in his completed armor. He aims the form's new sword, which has the appearance of an orange slice, towards the woman. "Playtime is over. This is my stage now." WC: 978

    Devil's Requiem

    A thunderous boom roared in the sky as the rain began to fall. The woman arrived at the same location where her husband perished, full of determination. She chose this spot to be the end of where it all began for her. Things would come full circle. She would avenge her husband as he watched over her. While the woman was confident in her new abilities, there was a nagging feeling that she'd fall as well. The potential thought of death didn't affect her as much as it should have. She'd either avenge his death and kill the one called Decade or she'd join him in the next life. Both sounded pretty good to her. It was a win-win situation. She no longer felt weak or defenseless. She could hold her own and take on anything that came her way. One year ago, the woman would have never believed she would turn out how she did. But a lot of things have changed since then. "I'll be with you soon," she whispered as she awaited her foe. Tetsuya dashed from rooftop to rooftop, taking full advantage of the extra abilities this dimension provided him. That weird sensation he felt continually egged him along, nearly disappearing before coming back in full force. Tetsuya wondered what or who he would find at the end of this little game. The sensation stopped as Tetsuya neared its last known location. Looking around, he felt a sense of familiarity. This was the same area where he fought the avian creature a short time back. There was no coincidence that he was brought back here. He readied his card, waiting to transform at a moment's notice. Amond the wreckage, he saw her. A woman dressed in black who kept her icy gaze locked onto Tetsuya. It was obvious that she was not the source of the sensation he felt. Was she apart of trap? Tetsuya leaps down a good distance away from her but with just enough space for the two of them to converse. "I take it I'm supposed to meet you here? Tetsuya inquires. The woman is beside herself. She could immediately tell he was there. He was one of those abominations that took her beloved. "Are you Decade? Are you one of them who took him from me?" she mutters as she rubs the golden gauntlet on her right hand. "Dammit." Tetsuya thought. It had to have been yet another one of Narutaki's machinations. Another person warped against their will in order to kill Tetsuya. The woman that stood before him seemed different. She wasn't a mindless beast like that previous one. Perhaps she could be made to see reason. "I've been called that. Whatever you have been told I did is incorrect. I haven't taken anyone." "LIAR" she screams as a burst of energy swirls around her. The sheer force of the energy is strong enough to push Tetsuya backward slightly. "I saw you! You look different now but you cannot fool me. I know it was you. You were one of them who did this. You destroyed this place. You took him away from me. Now, I'll take everything away from you. Bit by bit." Tetsuya realized that the woman had to have been one of the residents here. She must have lost someone close to her in the destruction. His suspicions were confirmed. Narutaki's influence had warped her. Tetsuya held his hands up, not wanting to add additional grief to the woman. "I was merely defending myself from that beast. I, surprisingly enough, wasn't trying to destroy anything around here yet. I.." As Tetsuya goes to finish his sentence, he notices three strands of hair harmlessly fall to the ground below. She stood with her right arm arched out; the gauntlet emitted smoky blue energy as if a gun had just been fired. Her accuracy was commendable; he knew she missed on purpose. If the attack had hit, it might have done some serious damage to his unarmored form. He waited for her to talk, to some anything, but she did not. She remained stoic and silent, eyes fixated on her prey. At that moment, he understood. He would not get out of this diplomatically. Whatever she had been warped into was dangerous and needed to be dealt with immediately. "Very well," he muttered as he pulled on the sides of his belt. The belt hummed as he materialized a card and inserted it into the slot at the top. "Kamen Ride: Decade!" the belt announced. Magenta energy enveloped Tetsuyaa as he emerged from within in his armored form. The appearance of this form sends shivers up the woman's spine. There it was. The form of the abomination that did this. The focus of her rage, her hatred. The gauntlet on her arm began to morph, spreading up to the top of her should as if it were liquid. The tip of the gauntlet elongated into a sword which the woman aimed at Tetsuya's head. In response, Tetsuya summons his own sword and readies himself. "If she is possessed by something like that guy at the hospital, I only need to defeat her." As one big bolt of lightning strikes the ground a fair distance away, the two of them disappear. They both appear hovering slightly about the ground, each delivering a froward strike with their weapons. Both blades run against each other, sparks flying off in the distance from the strike. The two lock eyes; one set filled with sorrow and rage, the other with a sense of amusement. The two disappear once more, returning to their original positions. Tetsuya is thoroughly surprised, noting her impressive power and speed. Despite his feelings regarding the matter, he was intrigued by this turn of events. Things became more and more interesting by the second; he could barely contain his excitement. Perhaps she'd give him the challenge he sought. WC: 987

    "Yeah, I'll be there in a little while. Just wanted to check up on this guy and see if he remembered anything." "Fine. Hurry back. I have something I have to do later," Rinko replies as she hangs up. Tetsuya sighs as he shoves his phone back into his pocket before walking back inside the hospital. It has been a few days since the avian creature attacked him. The man that the beast possessed had finally awoken in the hospital. He had multiple broken bones and it was a damned miracle that he was even alive. Thankfully for him, everyone who had seen him transform into the creature aside from Tetsuya had been killed. Tetsuya hoped that the man might have remembered what happened before he went on a rampage. Pretending to be an employee of the man's hotel, Tetsuya was granted some time to visit him. Just enough to be able to talk and leave. He gently knocks on the door and waits for a moment before sliding it open. He sees the man laying on the bed, most of his body wrapped in a cast. His eyes were barely open as he looked at the television across from him. "How are you doing sir? Feeling a little better than yesterday?" The man's eyes darted over to Tetsuya before he struggles to nod. "Feel like shit. Could be worse. The hell are you?" he mutters. Tetsuya sits down in the chair across from him, pulling the chair closer to the bed. "My name is Tetsuya. I work with the hospital's psychiatry department. Just here to speak with you and see if you remember what all happened." The man was silent for a moment, directing his glance back towards the television. "I honestly don't remember. One minute, I was walking to work upset about something idiotic my employees had done. Then I felt a sharp pain in my back. The next thing I know, I'm here with all of these tubes hooked up to me. I was told that there was a sudden tornado that hit the town and that I was dangerously close to the touchdown point." "That's one way of putting it," Tetsuya muttered under his breath. The man obviously didn't know the damage he caused and that was probably for the best. He seemed to be a mild-mannered fellow. To inform him that he was temporarily possessed by a blood starved beast would likely be too much to handle. Tetsuya quickly wrapped up the conversation and departed the room before any real hospital officials came in. His investigation had gone nowhere and he was just as clueless as he was before. As he begins to head towards the elevator, his phone rings again. "Are you going to be here soon? I have a present for you." "Unless you can get me connected with the spiritual beings of this dimension, preferably not the mindless variants, I probably don't want it." As Rinko begins to speak on the other line, Tetsuya begins to feel sluggish. That same overwhelming feeling from after he defeated the avian creature prior. Looking out the window, he sees a lone figure in the distance. "Gotta go Rinko. Will call back later," he mutters. The figure thrusts its arm forward as a small red orb of energy rockets forward. As it nears, Tetsuya regains his mobility and dodges as the last second. The energy orb smashes through the window and out the other side, harmlessly dissipating afterward. As he materializes a card and prepares to transform, he sees that the figure is gone yet again. "Dammit. It's toying with me," he says as he lets the card vanish. To his intrigue, the overwhelming feeling could be felt. This was obviously a trap but Tetsuya's intrigue was too much. "Let's see what its game is.” WC: 639

    Devil's Requiem

    A young woman looked around her, still in disbelief about what had happened. She had seen it all unfold right before her very eyes but still did not truly understand. Whatever her eyes fell upon, there was nothing but smoke and rubble. Huge chunks of the building that once stood exactly where she was standing lay everywhere. Everything there was gray. It was a dreary, uninspired gray that very well suited the occasion. The sun was shining in the background; the birds were chirping loudly. In front of her eyes, however, told a different story. It was only a mere four hours ago, everything was peaceful and sincere. The time had seemed to drag on for hours and hours; she could have easily mistaken it for days ago. The sky reflected the mood of the entire day, happiness. It was then when they came, the two abominations with immense power and destruction on their minds. It didn’t take them any longer than five minutes to ruin that day. The happiness was gone, the love and joyful feeling were gone. All that remained was gray, just pain and gray. Nothing remained. She sat amongst the rubble, firefighters, police, and paramedics all attempting to get her to move but all failing miserably. She remained in her spot, staring off into the distance. Only glancing back every once in a way to see the splatter of blood that was originally her husband. It was there as a stark reminder that all of this actually happened. It wasn’t some elaborate dream she could just wake up from when it was over, this was real life. He was dead; there was no bringing him back. A tear rolled down her cheek, showing off her dirtied skin from the day’s events. The tears were a welcome to her skin which had been diluted by dirt and blood. Her clothes and skin were caked with it but she did not mind. Nothing mattered that much anymore. They had already taken what mattered. She opted to wipe it off but soon relented, allowing it to harmlessly drop to the ground. It began to grow dark and people began to leave. Pretty soon it was just her, sitting alone in the darkness. Those two were not a part of this world, she knew that for sure. There was something about her husband, something that attracted all these weird things to him. He said he would protect her, and he did, but at what cost? She was now alone, alone and confused. She wished the day would start over again, just so she could have a few more precious moments with him. She whispered his name softly, clenching her fists and gritting her teeth. She released the grip on her hand, letting some of the dust that had built up finally scatter into the wind. Finally, she gets up from the ground, walking towards the moon overlooking the horizon. She’d never see his face again; feel the warmth of his embrace, all because of them. They were abominations, monsters even. She would be alone because of them; she would have to endure all of this pain because of them. She began to clench her fists once more, this time so hard that they began to bleed. She would find them and make them pay for what they did. She would beat them all mercilessly, one by one until they felt her pain. Only then after they begged for their lives would she grant them passage into the next world. Her right hand begins to burn as she opens it to hopefully ease the pain. As she does, a light blue glow of reiatsu forms around her hands and quickly dissipates. "Decade!" she whispers. As the woman walks away, Ayumi and Kazuma emerge from the shadows. She closes the box and hands it back to Kazuma, pleased by her work. Kazuma stroked his beard, intrigued by the recent turn of events. "So even with your reiatsu, they automatically target him? Narutaki sure has tunnel vision regarding this man. I do have to ask. Why her of all people?" Kazuma inquires. "Do you feel it Kazuma? Her sorrow. Her anguish. Her rage. All of it was so beautiful. I couldn't help but exploit it. I can't wait to see what she does with it." Chuckling at his partner's depraved reasons, he opens a Garganta. "Come. Let's see how the gauntlet card works." In the coming days, she began to train to grow in power. She was no longer afraid, no longer scared but determined and confident. She was fully determined to defeat the ones who killed him. Her powers had grown exponentially in the little time she had. Ayumi watched and fed her development from the shadows, constantly producing hollows as obstacles for the woman to deal with. Nothing major, just something to foster the growth. At first, she could only see the blue glow every now and then. Pretty soon it evolved into something more, surrounding her hand at first and soon her entire body. It wasn’t long after that the reiatsu began to condense and harden, becoming a gauntlet of sorts. When she tapped into the immensity of her powers, that’s when her true potential shined. Her thinking grew warped and distorted, believing that Tetsuya was the sole source of all her grief. She believed that her husband definitely would have been proud of what she had become and the power she had. Now it was finally time to put that power to use. A normal quiet day in Karakura, the wind is blowing gently and the birds are chirping. She walks down the street, a hand on her purse, the other dangling freely. Everything is calm, everything seems normal. The roar, the roar of yet another hollow pierced the skies. Everyone else walked as if they heard nothing but she did. She knew what it was and the danger these people were in. She’d seen their kind before and knew full well the damage they could do, the pain they could bring. Those damned supernatural entities. She moved swiftly and discreetly throughout the crowds, tracking the spiritual pressure of her prey. She was nearing her target and whether it knew it or not, it was in for a surprise. The hollow was closing in on its prey, a young boy with short hair. He was afraid, frightened, and alone. She stood behind the hollow and couldn’t help but feel for the kid. It wasn’t that long ago that she was in such a similar situation. She knew the fear he felt, but she would not let him go through that pain. With a loud shrill whistle, she gains the hollow’s attention before delivering a powerful kick to its neck. It yelps in pain as it crashes down, the woman landing gracefully on the ground. The kid scurries away, tears running down his face as he flees for his life. With the kid out of the way, she could cut close, albeit briefly. Her right arm begins to glow a bright blue, a silver gauntlet appearing soon after. The hollow gets up and attempts to attack but is stopped by a powerful punch from the gauntlet. She begins to rain down blows left and right, each one doing devastating damage to the hollow. Blood splatters on the ground as she continues to punch and punch. Each blow was stronger than the last, each one with the intent to kill. She does one final punch, the sheer force sending the hollow crashing into the building in front of her. It slumped down from the crater it made on impact, its breathing labored. The hollow seemed to be on its death bed, actually attempting to crawl away from the battle. She calmly walks over and slams her heels into its hand. She asks if it can speak, and after a few moments of silence, it replies in the affirmative. "Where is the one called Decade?" The hollow stares at the woman in bewilderment before informing her that it does not know. "Liar!" she screams as she delivers another punch to the downed hollow, killing it immediately. She roars in frustration as she turns to walk away, being stopped by Ayumi's presence. She goes to move towards the Arrancar but is stopped, feeling a sense of comfort and familiarity around her. Ayumi quickly moves to the woman, gently stroking her chin with her hand. "I know where he is. Would you like for me to tell you?" WC: 1,424

    The Destroyer of Worlds

    “Found Decade! Fucking Kill. Kill Decade.” The beast manages to speak. It extends the wings from its back as it lets out a gust of wind towards Tetsuya who easily dodges it. The creature lets out another few gusts of wind, all of which are easily avoided. Getting arrogant, Tetsuya motions for the beast to come towards him, hoping to agitate it. As the avian monstrosity charges Tetsuya, its right arm begins to morph into a curved black blade. A euphoric excitement washed over the beast’s face as it swings its sword-arm at the man's head, attempting to cleave it off in a single blow. With the greatest of ease, Tetsuya parries the blade with his own, leaving the beast wide open. “Pathetic.” He mumbles as he jabs the beast in the stomach with his free hand. A burst of pain jolts up the beast’s body as it reels back, Tetsuya quickly following up his assault. He follows by delivering three solid kicks to the center of the beast’s chest, the final spinning kick sending it a few yards back. The beast crashed into one of the scattered cars in the area, denting it upon impact. As he slowly brings his foot down, he groans in disappointment. “This is too easy. I was really hoping for some sort of fight. You are just as boring as the rest of them. Give me some sort of entertainment!” With anger in its eyes, the creature lifts itself from the wreckage, letting out a sickening howl as it does. It opens its beak, a green ball of energy forming from within. The ground begins to shake as the beast aims its beak directly at Tetsuya. “Cero!” it screams as the green energy rockets from its mouth. “Cero?” Tetsuya replies as his body is completely engulfed by the blast of energy. He is sent flying a good distance away, crashing into the side of a nearly collapsed building. The impact brings the rest of the building down around him, a wave of dust blowing through the area. “Oh, that kinda hurt. Guess I shouldn’t have asked for more entertainment. But if I remember correctly, Cero is one of those abilities hollows have. That bastard Narutaki did mix it with some of the native creatures here.” Tetsuya groaned. He moves some of the wreckage away from his person and stands up, his body not taking much damage from the hit. “Can’t let myself get hit by that again.” He says sarcastically as he moves his head around to search for the beast. As if on call, he sees the beast swipe its sword-arm at the air in rapid succession, sending several waves of green crescent energy towards him. Picking up the sword that dropped near him, Tetsuya quickly slashes away at the energy waves as they come close. Each strike splitting the waves in two and sending them harmlessly off in the distance. As the last energy wave is dealt with, Tetsuya quickly closes the distance between the two, preparing himself for a strike. The beast, however, raises its sword-arm upward, bringing it down in another attempt at Tetsuya’s life. This attempt was blocked by Tetsuya literally grabbing the sword’s blade with his free hand. The avian creature’s head tilted to the side as if it were bewildered by the turn of events. With a sigh, Tetsuya brings his own sword down, severing the arm of the creature completely. It let out a horrific cry of anguish as it stumbling back, favoring where the now missing limb was. Tetsuya casually tosses the severed arm behind him, readying himself for the final strike. As he begins to charge towards the creature, it lets out another horrific screech. The force of the screech is enough to completely halt Tetsuya’s movements. With its opponent distracted, the creature expands its wings and flies off into the sky. Tetsuya became increasingly annoyed by the second as he sees the creature flying off into the distance. “I’m definitely not letting you get away.” He sneers as pulls on the side of his belt. He quickly holds his hand out once more as energy is converted into another card. Clutching the card, he inserts it into the top of his belt and slams the sides closed. “Kamen Ride: Wizard! Hurricane Dragon! Please!” the belt announces as Tetsuya is enveloped by green energy. A sudden gale of wind blows the green energy away, revealing Tetsuya in a new form with a new belt. The new form was radically different than the previous, sporting a green uniform with matching cape. The uniform had accents of a dragon with what looked to be a dragon’s head on his chest. His helmet had also changed its form, appearing as a jewel set in a ring. The jewel bits were the same color as the uniform. He hovers his hand over the new belt as an announcement rings out. “Drago Time. Please!” the belt announces as large black and silver wings sprout from Tetsuya’s back. “Showtime!” he says as he takes to the skies with little effort. He cuts through the sky as he speeds towards the fleeing creature, flying faster than the beast ever could. In seconds, he makes up the distance as he greets the creature with a slash to its back. The creature descends slightly as it quickly turns around to fire another Cero at Tetsuya. Sensing this attack coming, Tetsuya easily avoids the blast as he moves in for another strike. With a quick slash, he manages to chip the creature’s beak as it howls in pain. “Time to finish this.” He announces as he begins to fly straight up in the sky. As the creature begins to hurtle down towards the ground below Tetsuya hovers his hand over the belt. “Final Attack Ride: Wizard! Very Nice! Hurricane Strike!” the belt announces as green energy begins to form around Tetsuya’s right leg. As soon as the energy is built up, Tetsuya dive-bombs forward, slamming his charged right leg into the creature’s abdomen. The two rocket down towards the ground as green energy courses through the creature’s body. It lets out another screech as the two hit the ground, a massive green explosion occurring. As the explosion dissipates, Tetsuya stands over the now defeated creature who has reverted back into the original man the card possessed. His breathing was labored, prompting Tetsuya to check him. “He’s injured but he’ll live. That’s good, I can question him later.” Tetsuya replied. As he stands up, he notices a small trace of wind still lingering near his right leg before disappearing. “That wind was drastically stronger than anything I've done previously in Wizard form. Perhaps this new dimension is affecting my powers. I'll need to test this out later and see what's going on.” While kneeling to pick up the unconscious man, he spots the card lying on the ground. As he moves to pick it up, he notes that the card is gone. Suddenly, he feels it. An intense presence surrounding him as if it were threatening to suffocate him. Hovering just a few feet above him, he sees the outline of a lone figure. He moves to attack but finds himself feeling sluggish and stiff. “Another time.” The figure responds as it quickly disappears from view. As it leaves, Tetsuya finds himself able to move freely once more, the suffocating feeling slowly disappearing. “What the hell was that? That wasn't that spiritual pressure everyone in this dimension uses.” Tetsuya replies as he cancels his transformation. He looks around, trying to find any trace of what was just there in a futile effort. Deciding to give up the search, he picks up the injured man and heads back into town. A good distance away, Kazuma watches Tetsuya depart as he holds the card in his hand. “You resorted to using that and you didn't kill him?” Ayumi asks as she hands him the box. “Killed my kid.” Jugo mumbles. Kazuma places the card back into the box, never keeping his eyes off of Tetsuya. “As expected, this Decade is an interesting one but I feel as if we haven’t seen the full extent of his power. I’d rather know my opponent before jumping in headstrong. At any rate, he will prove to be an asset for our plans. Come now, we must go. I’m sure all of this has attracted those damned Shinigami.” With a snap of his fingers, a Garganta opens as the trio step inside. WC: 1,422 Learned Gafu: Practitioner Level

    Music blared from the car as Tetsuya drove with an irritated look on his face. Every thirty seconds, Rinko would turn the radio station to something else, each station either getting wild praise or scathing criticism. “The music in this dimension is too varied. I miss the simplistic stuff.” “Would you rather go back to the beetle dimension?” Tetsuya replied, blankly staring at the road ahead. Rinko shuddered at the mere mention of that dimension, bad memories soon flooding her mind. It was in that dimension that she was kidnapped, set to be a sacrifice for a false God they worshiped. They almost succeed had it not have been for Tetsuya's timely interference. It was that action that solidified that dimension's destruction. “Never again! I'd rather deal with this than go back to that horrid place. They almost killed me!” she moaned. Tetsuya shook his head as they continued down the road. “You know just as well as I do that they wouldn't have succeeded.” “It's the principle of it!” she whined as Tetsuya laughs to himself. Though rare, he enjoyed the fleeting moments he got to annoy her. It was the little things. Taking a left turn, Tetsuya could see the damage caused by the creature in the distance. Buildings were down, law enforcement and paramedics lined the streets attempting to help those who were still alive. He pulls up as close to the police barricade as he could, taking a deep sigh as he does. “I'm going to go take a look around. Curious to see what's going on. Take the car and go shopping. I'll meet you back at the place.” Rinko whined as she unbuckled her seat belt, her face scrunched up. “I thought you were going with me?!” As Tetsuya goes to open his door, he is stopped by a large feather landing on the windshield. “A feather?” he wonders to himself, quickly remembering the rumors of the bird man. “When I get out of the car, climb over and get out of here. No jokes. I'll meet you later.” Rinko understood the situation, not wanting to be a potential sacrificial lamb this time around. With a nod, Tetsuya bolts out of the car door, Rinko quickly climbing to the driver side and speeding away. As she looks back in the rear view mirror, she sees the avian creature landing in front of Tetsuya. The creature stares at Tetsuya with head tilted, slowly walking towards him. “Kill. Decade. Who are you?” Tetsuya sighed deeply, easily recognizing the creature's origins. “Narutaki again? That man is constantly hounding me." Something about the creature, however, piqued his interest. It didn't give off the same energy as one of Narutaki's machinations. This was mixed with something else, something foreign to him. Perhaps Narutaki had made contact with the supernatural creatures in this dimension before him and struck some kind of deal? Tetsuya sneered in annoyance, the old man one step ahead of him once more. “Fucking Kill. Are you? Decade?” “I'm very irritated and your vulgarity isn't helping. Given that Narutaki isn't here, I'm going to have to release my anger out on you.” Tetsuya pulls out a magenta belt from inside his suit jacket and places it on his waist. A strap extends from the belt and wraps around Tetsuya. Tetsuya pulls on the side of the belt to open to activate it. A small hum emanates from the belt as Tetsuya holds his right hand out. White energy begins to form around his hand as a small card materializes. Clutching the newly materialized card tightly, he prepares himself. “Henshin!” he says as he places the card in the slot at the top of the belt and slams the sides together. “Kamen Ride: Decade!” the belt announces. The translucent screen on the buckle soon glowed as multiple images of cards surround Tetsuya. Two magenta rings of energy burst from the belt, covering the man's body from top to bottom. As the rings disappear, Tetsuya now appears wearing a magenta and black bodysuit. The bodysuit had no distinguishing feature apart from a pair of glowing green eyes on the helmet. The cards floated around the man's face before attaching to his helmet, completing the transformation. “Kill. Who are you?” the creature replies once more, beginning to charge the new armored Tetsuya. He removes a small book shaped device from his side, pressing a button as it extends into a sword. Dusting his hand down the side of the blade, he responds. “I'm just a passing-through Kamen Rider. Remember that! WC: 760

    Ka Ka Ka Ka Kachida ze! "Turn off the alarm Rinko" Gun gun gun gun gun o nuki "Five more minutes." Jyan jyan byan byan kyuu... "Ah, forget it." The music from the alarm clock was quickly silenced by a male hand tossing it aside; the clock slamming into the wall across the room. The man let out a sluggish yawn, stretching his body reluctantly before sitting up on the side of the bed. Tetsuya blinked his eyes groggily as he stared as the now broken alarm clock laying on the ground. With a groan, he lifts himself up off the side of the bed, picking the broken wreckage from the floor. “Didn't mean to throw it that hard,” he muttered to himself. “You'll have to buy me a new one later,” Rinko says. He quickly glances back at her, watching as she still has her head buried in the sheets. “I'm going to take a shower. Can you get some coffee ready?” She waves her hand out from the sheets, shooing him away to get a few extra minutes. “Such a pain,” he mutters as he heads to the bathroom. As he closes the door, he could hear her complain about finding her pink slippers, shaking his head in disapproval. Rinko had come with him from his original world as she helped him find the value of each world. She was, in many aspects, a moral compass of sorts, guiding him to decide if each world needed to be destroyed. Today, she wanted to do what she always does in a new place. She wanted to shop. Although Tetsuya hated this with a passion, it did give him the opportunity to observe the dimension. He looks to the clock in the corner of the room and notes the time. “It’s already eleven. Suppose I should get started myself.” He removes his boxers and turns on the shower. Letting the water heat up, he slowly steps inside, letting the hot water bead down his body. Finishing his shower, he quickly dries himself before changing into a suit with a magenta undershirt. As he exits the bathroom, the smell of coffee hits him. He hadn't found much to like about this dimension but they made damn good coffee. Rinko hands him a cup as he sits down and opens the newspaper. “Another murder in the news. More kidnapping and child abuse reports. This really isn’t helping this dimension's case.” he says between slurps. “Each dimension has good and bad. Maybe today is the day you'll find some good. At the very least, we'll get some new stuff out of it.” Rinko says as she finishes her cup and turns on the television. "BREAKING NEWS! Tornadoes have touched down in all across Karakura Town. Districts two, five, and thirteen have received substantial damage. Around Forty-nine people have been reported deceased with several hundred injured. The numbers have continued to grow. Coinciding with these reports, rumors of a mysterious bird man accompanying the tornado have been swirling around. All reports have been unconfirmed but we will keep you updated on any new developments.” “Birdman?” Tetsuya says inquisitively. “Perhaps it is one of those hollows this dimension has?” Rinko replies. Tetsuya pondered the thought as he eagerly looked forward to meeting the supernatural entities in this dimension. He knew about them all, a product of his arrival to this dimension, but was unsuccessful in finding any of them. Hollows, Shinigami, Quincies, none of them. He couldn't even sense their spiritual pressure, though he was still a bit unfamiliar with how to do so. Maybe this could be the perfect opportunity to “introduce” himself to this dimension. At least to give them a heads up of their potential fate. It was more fun if they knew and made decisions with that knowledge. With renewed interest, Tetsuya finishes the rest of his coffee and stands up. “Shower and get dressed. We have to go shopping.” WC: 660

    The Destroyer of Worlds

    Across the city, a man in a suit walks down the sidewalk. In his right hand, he clutched a small black briefcase with the words HIDEN emblazoned on it. In his left, he held a phone up to his ear, chatting away with the person on the other end. “They did WHAT to the hotel?! I am honestly not surprised. Having untrained dogs work the front desk would be better than them. I am not far away from the hotel. Make sure they don’t burn the place down before I arrive.” Irritated, the man shoves his phone in his suit pocket and quickens his pace. “Fucking morons,” he mutters. It was a typical Karakura morning, nothing out of the ordinary. People were heading to work, others out for a morning stroll. All of them unsuspecting of what a dark day this would be. A day that would signal the potential end of the world. A cool breeze blows through the area, sending a chill through the man's spine. Suddenly the man feels a slight jab in his lower back, intense pain shoots throughout his body. He stops moving and slowly collapses to the ground, moaning in pain as he does. Lodged in the small of his back is the card Jugo tossed away mere minutes before, still coated in blue energy. The card seemingly burns away as the man screams in agony, the commotion attracting several people to him. “Hey buddy, are you alright?" "Sir?" The man begins to convulse, blood flowing freely from his mouth. He could see the people beginning to surround him gradually disappear, replaced by encompassing darkness. "Somebody call an ambulance! He’s bleeding from his mouth." "Hang in there. Someone get a damn ambulance here.” As more and more people begin to surround his body, the man’s yelling increases in intensity. After a minute, the yelling stopped. The man does not move. His body is as stiff as a board, body completely cold to the touch. Some of the bystanders begin to panic, turning away from the body. Suddenly, the man’s eyes shoot open, a blue glow emanating from them. He yells once more, the roar sounding more and more bestial in nature. The wind begins to whip violently in the area, the man being the epicenter of the now gray tornado that formed. The bystanders are flung into the air, some slamming into the concrete walls with a sickening thud and accompanied by a slow drip of blood. The man then threw his arms apart, sending two more waves of wind to wreak havoc on buildings around him. Slowly the man began to walk away, a bloody scene of carnage and destruction surrounding him. His body was surrounded in blue reiatsu, slowly morphing him into something new. Something sinister. His body became taller and more muscular, a pair of jet black wings burst out from his back. His head transformed into that of an eagle's, while his fingers became talons. A hole opened up in the middle of his chest, black liquid oozing from the center. The avian creature slowly looked around, an unintelligible sound escaping its beak as it took pride in the destruction it created. Buildings have crumbled, dead bodies lying everywhere. Cars littered the streets as if they had been thrown away like trash. The sky grew darker as lighting raged in the sky. “De..cade. Fucking Kill Decade” The creature manages to say. With a mighty grunt, the avian monstrosity leaped off towards the sky. It's black wings letting off powerful gusts of wind in the process. As the area below him reeled from the destruction, the three Arrancar appeared at the ground level. “Is that thing a hollow?” Ayumi asks as she stares at Kazuma inquisitively. Kazuma scratched at his beard, watching the creature speed through the sky. “Seems as if it is a combination of whatever Narutaki got those cards from and Jugo's hollow DNA. Given its speech patterns, it may have taken on some of Jugo's characteristics.” “I'll fucking kill it if it calls me daddy.” Jugo sneers as he steps on a corpse beneath them. “At any rate, these cards are becoming more and more intriguing. I wonder what this new creature can do.” WC: 708

    The Destroyer of Worlds

    Karakura General Hospital, the premier medical facility in Karakura Town. Surrounded by buildings, this is the best place one can go to in town to receive medical attention. Many would visit it today. At the top of the building, three humanoid figures stood against the wind. Two of the figures were male, the third was female. The trio gazed down at the town that lay beneath them, their eyes peering in the darkness. “Where the hell is this contact of yours, Kazuma?" one of the males shouted. He wore an unbuttoned green shirt with black military styled pants. Black sunglasses framed his face which sat just below a hole in the side of his head. “I’ve grown tired of waiting.” The female chuckled as she sat down at the end of the building, her black heels dangling freely from the sides. A cool breeze prompted her to zip up her sweater, hiding her black crop top and the hole near where her belly button would be. She stuffs her hands into the pockets on her jacket as she stares out into the night sky. “Jugo, you are so impatient. Relax a little.” “Fuck that!” Jugo roars slamming his fist on the edge of the building. The sheer impact from his strike cracks the landscape, sending shock-waves down below. The female laughed as she swings her legs to and from, pleased with her work. “Ayumi, quit antagonizing him. Calm yourself Jugo. He will be here shortly.” Kazuma replies after a brief pause. The two shoot a quick glance at him and instantly stop their squabbling, a testament of the respect he commanded. Jugo sits down in a corner, muttering to himself about annoyances. A large creaking sound broke the silence as a man in gray enters the rooftop from the service entrance. The man in gray walks up to the trio with a grimace on his face. “I hope I haven’t kept you long.” The man announces. Jugo immediately rises from his seat, a blood starved look in his eyes. He moves towards the man in gray with evil intentions as Kazuma calmly raises a hand, stopping him in his tracks. “We’ve waited long enough. Tell us. Why did you want to meet with us, Narutaki?” The man’s facial features grew darker, his hands begin to tremble. “He is here. Decade: The Destroyer of Worlds.” Ayumi yawns as Narutaki begins to pace around in anger. “The one you warned me about prior? Interesting. I thought you said it was unlikely that he would arrive in this dimension. Regardless, it is fine. We are not afraid of a so-called destroyer.” "Fuck em!” Jugo chimes in. His rage at all of the annoyances reaching a fever pitch. “You Arrancar are a capricious bunch. You have not seen what I’ve seen. Experienced what I have. If you aren’t careful, Decade will be the end of you all. I sought you out as the Shinigami are too far gone to listen to reason and I cannot get hold of the leader of the hollows. Given that you three are renegades with incredible power, I assumed you would be the only ones to stop him.” Kazuma turns his back to Narutaki as he walks towards the opposite end of the rooftop. His demeanor changed in an instant. His spiritual pressure spiked up, sending a paralyzing fear into all present. The sheer force behind his spiritual pressure is so strong that it freezes all of his subordinates in their tracks. “I’d be grateful if you don’t mention that man. Regardless of whatever rank he claims, he is not our leader.” Knowing he’d pressed a button, Narutaki hides a coy smile. With ease, he walks towards Ayumi, stunning all present. He pulls out a small box from his coat and places it beside her. “My apologies. It was not the intention to raise your ire. The threat of Decade is real, however. I’ll attempt to amass more who are willing to combat this threat to your dimension. In the meantime, I’ve left you with a gift from another world. These should be able to combat Decade and help you gauge his fighting style. You’ll just need to give it a little energy.” Kazuma stops exerting his spiritual pressure, letting his two companions move freely once more. “How was he able to move so freely with my spiritual pressure released?" Kazuma thought to himself. An inquisitive look spread across his face, Narutaki taking notice. With a chuckle, Narutaki waves his hand as a small portal appears in front of him. As he begins to step inside, Kazuma’s voice stops him. “What the hell are you?” With a small sigh, Narutaki replies. “Who knows?” As the portal closes behind Narutaki, Kazuma walks back towards his Arrancar companions. With Jugo walking alongside him, they quickly reach Ayumi who has picked up the box. “That guy gives me the creeps.” She says with surprising seriousness. Her face told the story. She, for the first time in quite a long time, was afraid. Afraid of what that man really was. Afraid of something that could cause someone like him to be worried. “I must admit, I am leery of him as well. I am, however, interested in this 'Decade' he speaks of. Perhaps we can use both of them to our advantage. If anyone brings this dimension to its knees, it will be us alone.” “Goddamn right.” Jugo retorts to a small chuckle from Ayumi. Kazuma stares at the box intently, slowly taking it from Ayumi’s hands to examine it himself. It was a small pitch-black box with the letters S.H.O.C.K.E.R emblazed on the top. Upon opening the box, Kazuma found a set of card. The cards were black, like the box, with gold trimming. Each card had an animal, creature, or an inanimate object on them with stars around it. “Does he intend for us to play a fucking children’s game?” Jugo snorts with annoyance. “I suspect these are much more than that. He said to give them a bit of power right?” Kazuma says as he selects the first card from the deck before closing the box. The image on the card was that of an eagle with four stars surrounding it. He hands the card to Jugo and looks out over the horizon. “Give it a bit of your spiritual energy. Let’s see what it does.” Grumbling, Jugo takes the card and imprints a portion of his spiritual pressure into the card. Blue energy quickly coats the card as it begins to burn Jugo, who quickly tosses the card in the wind. The card, seemingly possessed, makes a beeline for the heart of Karakura Town. “What now?" Ayumi asks inquisitively. “Let’s see what this Decade can do.” WC: 1,127
