Captain Ajuin Feng

Squad 4 Quarantine

Recommended Posts

Sakura opened her eyes to white all around her. those soft eyes slowly opening as her head rolled softly to the side, sleepy eyes trying to make out her surroundings. there was......nothing. Just a white room she was in.

Slowly sitting up, she took a moment to look over herself despite the clinging feelings of drowsiness. Her body was prefectly fine, then again she didn't remember that captain guy actually getting in any hits. It was...strange. She felt a light shudder and shook her head.

"She's awake"

Her eyes snapped open and she turned, looking around a bit frantically. She saw noone. Or rather, nothing at all. No doors, no windows, nothing, she was in a box. She dragged her blankets and sleeping pad to one corner of the room and did the best thing she could think to do: cover herself, wrapping herself in a cocoon of cloth as she peeled out through a slit. Soft mumbling echoing in the room. Bits and pieces of it floating through the room. What on earth was going on?

Unbeknownst to her, she was under quarantine. Until they deciphered what it was that had caused her transformation they were keeping her in there until they could get the proper information. Sakura however knew none of this, and simply curled up in her corner, hoping to herself over and over, that she'd be out of there soon.

Two days had passed since the incident with the girl Sakura at the rukongai district. Ruroki couldn't let go of his troubled mind over the girl's situation. Not understanding why he'd feel a need to worry about about a person he just met as interaction with others would just slow him down, hinder him from his personal goals. Yet.. He worried, not wanting to just leave the girl alone to her fate. "Damn it.." he thought as he lifted himself up from a sofa he'd been lying down in, his body was a bit sore still so rising up so suddenly hurt a slightly. Frustrated that the annoying feeling wouldn't disappear from his thoughts he'd gotten up to make his move towards the squad 4 area to check up on the girl, hoping it would leave his thoughts alone after. He grabbed his haori as he passed through the door storming off towards the barracks.

Upon arriving to the squad 4 area Ruroki sought out the building where they'd possibly keep her. The guards at the door didn't even try stopping him as they saw his haori they'd simply let him walk through the door bowing in respect. He eventually reached a desk in the main lobby where a shinigami he'd presume to be a secretary of some as he then proceeded to question her; "Two days ago. A woman from the rukongai district should have been brought here. There might not have been much information about her, however I'm positive she got brought back here. I wish to see her." . The shinigami behind the desk confirmed his wish and started to type on a computer as she eventually stopped and looked up to Ruroki; "Ah.. Ehm.. She seems to be located in the quarantined area. I'm not sure if you have the right authorization to enter.. There might be complications.." the secretary finished. "Quarantined?" he thought to himself finding it slightly over done from the Gotei's part before speaking to the woman; "Yes yes, I don't care. I'll take my chances now take me there." The woman then guided Ruroki along with another guard through the building until they'd reach a door. The woman and Ruroki entered as the guard remained stationary outside. There wasn't much space in here.. In fact all he could see was a few chairs a computer table of sorts and just a big wall. The woman started pressing around on the computer table as the wall in front of him started to fade slowly turning transparent. Inside behind it, he could see the girl Sakura crawled up in a corner of the of the white room covered up with blankets. "She can't see us." the woman told him.. "If you'd like you could speak to her by pressing this button." she said before making a bow leaving towards the door "The guard will escort you back." she told him before disappearing. The sight over Sakura was depressing, he found it disgusting that the Gotei placed her in a place like this, this was surely over reacting. How on earth would this help he thought starting to anger up a bit.

Not sure what he was to say to the girl he released some of his reiatsu in hopes that maybe the girl could feel someone was there. He went on with it for a while though he wasn't' sure if anything could be felt in there.. For all he knew that room could be draining reiatsu. Ruroki closed his eyes and sighed before pressing a button as he then slowly spoke; "How are ya holding up, kiddo?" as he'd open up his eyes slowly to take a look at the poor scene again.

Sakura's eyes snapped open with a start as she sat up, looking rapidly around the room. A different voice this time, another one yes... But this one was familiar, very familiar.... Popping her head up from her blankets, Sakura looked around.

"C-captain?" she uttered out, completelt ignoring his question. Several days in the space, she was not very well off. Sure she was eating and such normally but she had been constantly berated with questions, on several occasions she'd gone into more rages and attempted to destroy her prison, but each time had failed due to the sekiseki rock that the place was made of. Several walls had had to be replaced after she'd been sedated, they were still working on making a material that didn't break when she attacked it.

She ignored the voice in her head, that weedling tone that whispered in her mind that it was a trick. The voice had grown louder and louder over the past few days, Sakura had been repressing it, even in her rages, she knew she needed to stay as calm as possible....as calm.....as....possible.

Seeing the girl's head pop up behind the blankets responding to his voice made him feel slightly lighter. Though she didn't really answer the question but that was fine either way, at least she was responsive and it seemed her inner hollow was idle from the reaction he got. Not sure whether or not the girl remembered him or anything about the recent events he pressed the button once more to respond her call; "Y-yeah.. Captain.." he released the button for an instant to let a small sigh out before continuing; "Ruroki... My name is.. Ruroki.. We met a few days ago in the woods.. Can you remember? The food stall.." he finished as he gazed into her cell. The room was either in horrible condition or.. "It" might have appeared again. He couldn't help but the feel as if the second conclusion was the more correct one.

Sakura was looking around fervently, scratching at the walls, panic in her eyes as she looked for him. "PLEASE! Captain, I'm so sorry! J-just let me out of here! I promise it won't happen again, I promise I'll be good, Just let me out of here!" she broke into hysterics, trying desperately to find where the voice was coming from, it was her hope, her only hope to get out of there, that terrible, awful place. Her eyes started to show very slight tints of black in them, though they faded in and out, it was very clear that Sakura was in control at the moment as she continued her search. They had her in a white kimono usually reserved for prisoners, even the remains of what was once sekiseki cuffs and collar were around her neck and wrists, clearly having been broken off in her bouts of rage.

After several minutes Sakura collapsed onto her side, sobbing as she leaned against the wall, hugging herself as she continued to whimper.

"Ple....please....just let me out...."

The scene that went on inside the cell, seeing Sakura whimper in despair crying out for to be released was enough for him to close his eyes. It might have been more then he could handle to see as he thought to himself "Accursed hollows. How I hate you, the misery I have to witness that you leave behind.." he clenched his teethes along with his fist as hatred rose up in him "I'll kill you all, I swear it. I can't stand this no longer." As thought passed he relaxed his facial composure and took a deep breath with his nose to calm down to focus on what was important here, the unfortunate girl who never seems to get some slack. He opened his eyes slowly again to press the button to speak; "Yeah.. I know.." he took a pause before continuing; "But before I do.. Sakura. Are you aware what's going on around you? Do you remember anything from past events?" He wanted to make sure the girl was not ignorant of her current situation since being in this place is not going to help her. He knew the only person who could save her from this was Sakura and only Sakura herself.

Sakura seemed to freeze for a moment before she wiped her eyes, nodding her head as she curled up a bit more, a sinking feeling in her chest as she suddenly remembered the man's insane distaste for hollows. Did....did he think she was a hollow? Was that why she was in here? Had he kept her here to kill her? Torture her? Her eyes went wider and wider, that blackness lingering a bit more in her eyes as she whimpered out.

"I....I know what it looked like. I'm so sorry...I swear that's not the real me-"

Liar

"It was those things I took in....I...I think one of them ate the others and took over!"

You're a terrible liar. You know this is you, that I'm just another part of your power. You're never going to get out of here, not without my help, if you'd stop holding me back.

"I just...I have it under control now, just....please don't kill me." Sakura sniffled, beginning to care less and less about being in that place now that the possibility of her life ending began to draw in.

Ruroki was taken back at her words.. "Kill her?" he repeated the thought in his head. "Is that what she think I'm here for?" he pondered. She was half right though about one thing. He'd kill vizards before even though that was different, they gladly gave in to the "corruption" eventually turning them into more beast then man.. Silence raised up as Ruroki didn't speak for quite a while, he just looked at her after she put the thought in his head. "Tsk" left his lips after a long time of staring before he reached down to press the button; "Hollowfication.." he finally said. "A process by which the strength limit of a soul is increased by removing the boundary between shinigami and hollow." he took a brief pause again "I suspect this is what you're going through, the hollow whom appeared yesterday used abilities strangely familiar to what you've described you have. A inner-hollow something that is a part of you yet.. It isn't." he took a look at the girl to see if she'd react in anyway. "I'm aware that what I saw yesterday is not the real you.. Nor am I here to kill you either.. I'm here to pr-" he stopped right there almost choking on the word.. "Protect" he thought.. He wanted to say it but every time he'd ever decided to protect anything in this world it was always robbed away leaving him in further despair to be left alone again in this world. "...Help.." he finally finished.

Sakura shook her head slowly as the man hesitated, his silence condemning her in her mind as she held herself a bit tighter. It had been quite the transformation over the last few days, it seemed even now, that stoic Sakura was only a face, something ever so easily broken by pressure.

When he finally did speak, Sakura blinked, wiping her eyes as she looked up and tilted her head, a bit....confused as he began explaining hollowfication. It was...odd. Interesting. She looked at her tattoo, where her zanpaku'to was and wondered. Was that her true power? She felt a soft chuckle echo through her mind, closing her hand as she thought over the idea.

Deep down in that dark world, Sakura opened her eyes, looking up to see Arukas smirking down at her.

"Not as stupid as you act are you?"

Sakura simply stared, slowly looking down a moment as she looked around, simply....thinking for a moment.

"I'm not some invader....I've always been here Sakky. I'm the real you, or a part of the real you. Noone put me in you. I just woke up is all....."

Sakura opened her eyes again in the real world, nodding slowly a bit as she got slowly to her feet, looking down at her hands as she spoke. "May I come out now?" she asked. It was more of a formality. She was sick of being in there. She'd been trying to summon Soyokaze for the past few days, but now she could feel them, if she wanted to....she could break out. She knew that would make her an outlaw....again. In a way. But........she needed to get out.

Sakura stood up nodding to his explanation he'd just given her she proceeded to ask if she could be let out. Ruroki pressed the button to reply her; "I didn't place you here. I can't open any doors." he said as a wicked smile appeared on his lips. The thrill he got from what he was about to do next felt satisfying as he thought to himself "I can finally break your chains now.. Gotei.". Ruroki walked up towards the screened wall that Sakura was behind "Curse the higher heavens, Kokurai." As the his marked armed appeared he placed it on the wall in front of him; "Mark of the first curse: Wither." as the words left his lips black strings extended all over the wall into a weird pattern. Ruroki didn't fancy using his cursed abilities for every time he did a very unpleasent feeling was felt through out his body, as if something was siphoned straight out of him. As he then walked back to the computer board to press the button one last time; "Sakura.. Stand back a bit." he told her hoping she'd get a hint about what was about to happen. Ruroki lifted up his left arm as he started to build up an insane amount of reiatsu making the building shake violently. His black markings around his cursed hand started to flicker and crackle with black lightning violently making a high pitched screech as the lightning spread and widened across the room. The guard who was stationaried just outside threw open the door to the room holding his hand at the hilt of his zanpakuto and was about to shout out to Ruroki but never got the chance to as Ruroki kicked one of the chairs inside the room to flu across the room hitting the man right in his chest knocking him out to the wall behind him. As his lightning almost reached its full potential Ruroki threw himself towards the marked wall fist first it came down crashing with force. As soon as he entered the cell the aura and lightning around him vanished.. The sekiseki rock in here was strong, no wonder Sakura could be detained so easily in here.

An alarm was echoing loudly after the wall had been broken down, people would be approaching soon.. A lot of them too. Ruroki looked over to Sakura "Hi!" he said. "I didn't quite think this one through thoroughly.. Feelin' strong enough to improvise?" he asked her trying to joke off the seriousness of the situation.

Abilities used:

First curse, Wither:

"By marking objects with his curse the molecules inside the marked objects weaken and starts to wither as long as they're bound by the accursed marks. Cursed abilities siphon slight humanity from Ruroki making him feel more and more empty inside."

Sakura blinked in surprise at that sudden warning. Immediately she went to the center of the room, gulping a bit as she heard a sudden roar as he blasted through the wall, causing her to wince before she shot through the rubble and tackled Ruroki, her arms wrapping around his chest, hugging him tightly, practically bursting with gratitude as she did so. However at his question she paused, looking over her shoulder and looking around before thinking, considering for a moment before she nodded slowly at that. Her tattoo withered as she summoned Soyokaze, releasing it as well, covering her hand with that claw'd glove. She raised her hand before the fabric turned black and a sudden heavy feel spread through the room, aa massive ammount of reiatsu before there was a soft whisper as she blanketed the area with her ability, the guards in the area suddenly feeling a slight tug and even as they rushed in, they seemed to completely ignore the pair as they started rummaging around the room.

Turning to Ruroki, she held a finger to her lips, signaling him to be quiet be fore grunting out in a sudden very deep voice, emulating a male

"They're escaping! Down the hallway!"

Immediately those guards, all assuming it was one of their own, rushed down the hallway after nonexistent escapers. Sakura smirked at that before nodding to Ruroki, taking his hand and attempting to pull him out into the hallway so they could try to get away.

The card on Dread's person started to glow a great blueish white light. Flinging itself out in front of Sakura and Ruroki the card expanded to the shape of a rectangle similar to a door. The card was a type of portal into a pocket dimension made out of playing cards, or more specifically the Major's.

At the same time another card opened up on the throne of the Wandenreich's king in Silbern or the silver frozen over palace of the Quincy.

Description of the pocket dimension: A white room with floating glowing cards acting as portals to the Major's cards he scattered all over dimensions, however they're too small to fit through. Also inside the pocket dimension is a small lab that looked like it was ripped out of the Squad 8 wine cellar. Included in this dimension package is a shelf of all sorts of weapons from the world of the living that are all Fullbringer enhanced to become lethal against spiritual beings. Inside the dimension should be a floating card similar to the one you entered in with that is big enough to fit a person through. Said opening card will lead you to the Silbern Palace in the Wandenreich's shadow realm.

OOC:

Power used

As soon as Ruroki had broken the wall down it was almost as if he'd run straight into Sakura as she greeted him with quite the hug. Not expecting this at all he tensed up every muscle in his body with his hands frozen up in the air from the surprise wishing that coming in contact with her again wouldn't cause her inner hollow to emerge like last time. Eventually though he relaxed his tense body blushing slightly in embarrassment to the sudden reaction as it would seem the hollow wouldn't take over and let one if his palms land on top of Sakura's head before she nodded to his words. As Sakura released her shikai Ruroki heard guards storming this way, making quite a racket. He was about to hastily tell her they needed to move but as he turned his head towards her to speak she clearly hinted him not to speak. Not sure what she really meant by that and a bit stressed that either way moving now was too late anyway he remained silent. Several guards rushed through the corridors some even peeked through the door to the room they'd bust the wall down but none seemed to react to them. It was at this point Ruroki understood what she meant and just turned his face towards her thinking her powers are something else indeed.

Sakura tugged on to Ruroki's hand as she started to lead them through out the corridors of the buildings eventually leading them to a hallway when suddenly something bluish bright started streaming from Sakura as it then flashed out and widened right infront of them. Being in fast motion already they stepped right into it without given any chance think about it. Bright light blinded Ruroki's eyes for a moment as he stopped moving. His vision slowly returned to him as he looked around the odd place he so suddenly found himself in. He threw his head backwards to face a white wall. There where no signs of them passing through anything. "Woah.. What?" he said sounding quite surprised to what just happened. The interior of the room looked like a lab of sorts as he gazed over the room before turning to Sakura; "Are you alright?" he asked her before studying his surroundings yet again "What.. Where are we?" he'd ask straight out not really talking to anyone. He then eventually notices a light much like the size and color they'd just step into at the other side of the room along with a strange shelf.. Ruroki walked up to the shelf to inspect it as he stretched his hand out to poke one if these objects "Mortal weapons.. What on earth.." he thought before turning around to Sakura once more; "Is this part of your powers too?" he asked her curiously since the light originally had come from her.

Sakura smiled, feeling confident as they seemed to be making a great escape, however she felt....odd, and quite suddenly she found that door in their path, her eyes wide as she suddenly found herself latching onto Ruroki as they slid into that room. She was suddenly assailed by white, looking all over as she took in their new location.

"This isn't me this is......." she searched, thinking until she suddenly felt it. This was MAjor's spiritual pressure! She was about to speak when suddenly she saw that next door open up and she found herself looking back to Ruroki. It had been so fast, so sudden that they had went from strangers to partners on the run. She wasn't quite sure how she felt about him but at the very least, she felt safer now, he had saved her this time and she kept her hold on him as they walked through the door into the new area.

Ume panted as she ran down the hallway, Delita hot on her heels as the two rushed around, blinking as quite suddenly they found it The door with Sakura's name on it.

"Ha! W-were almost there! Cmon Dlita, we've almost got her!" she shouted in excitement, the two shingiami bursting in only to see.....the broken door. Both shinigami stared,dead silent with only the sound of approaching guards.

Ume shook her head, tears comming to her eyes. " N....no.....we missed her....." she whispered before shaking her head. Suddenly tears began to roll down, happy and scared at the same time.

It tore Delita up, he realized what had happened. They'd been too late.....too late to save Sakura....too late to go with her. He hung his head and reached down, putting an arm around Ume.

"Ume...it;s......it's going to be ok.......at....at least.....at least we know she's safe.....come on....get up. We're not going to....we have to at least give her a better chance of escape..." he said softly, helping Ume, sobbing, to her feet, both of them drawing their Zanpaku'to as they turned to the approaching guars. They knew they were going to die. Too many guards. They had not thought it through too much. Delita felt the worst. He had been aroud long enough,, but Ume was young, and it broke his heart that this was going to be their end. With a soft sigh, he whipped about, his pommel snapping into the back of Ume's head, knocking her out before he placed a hand on her head.

"But.....your time...isn't right now..." he murmured, using his ability, he made her sink down into the ground, vanishing from there and teleportig her to the cave. He shook his head as he smiled. At least she would be safe. He had another half hour before he would be able to use the ability again....and he didn't have that long. Getting back to his feet, he turned around and waited....waited for the guards to come and end him.
