The not so distant past... (Devouring Beast Setoku and Squad Member Lyonin)

Post by Setoku on Fri Feb 22, 2013 7:03 pm

The city lights shone brightly, reflecting off puddles of day old rain - Causing a slight orange streak to seem to surround everything in someones vision. The air was stagnant, smelling of something akin to weeks old trash... or a rotting corpse. But this place - Was so far from that long distance view of the city lights, yet so close. A child, perhaps no older than six, ran in fright. Dangling from her chest was a chain, a thick, heavy looking chain - Yet the girl ran as if no weight had been applied. It even seemed her feet weren't touching the ground. She ran past a man, digging through the trash in a dumpster in the alley.

"Mister... Mister please help!"

The man continued to dig, as if he didn't hear her. She screamed louder, and reached out to grab his bacteria covered jacket.

"Mister! MISTER! The monster!!"

She stopped herself, as he hand seem to pass right through his jacket, her eyes wide. What... what was going on? She jerked her head to the side, catching the purple beast in her site. He moved with a well practiced gate, dragging a chipped and cracked sword in his left hand, the tip of it dragging across the damp pavement, causing sparks to ignite briefly. The girl fell back, using the man as a shield as she scampered between him and the trash can.

"Come here, little girl..."

The beast spoke, his voice was twisted. Over his face was a mask, seemingly made of bone - And it was starkly reminiscent of a bat..? Yes, a bat. From his back, two leathery wings were unfurled, but then she lost sight of him, as she maneuvered herself between the man and the dumpster better. Maybe it'd attack the man instead? The man suddenly jumped up, reaching above his head, his eyes bright with excitement! He had found... A half eaten sandwich!

"Yes....! It's been days since I cou...ld... ea..."

He seemed so energetic and full of life at that sandwich, but just as quickly, the light in his eyes faded, and his voice sounded as if it struggled to come out. The girl looked up, and saw a metal sword piercing the mans throat. She mouthed a scream, but nothing came out. She tried to back further, but was stopped by the dumpster. The man slowly rose off the ground, and was jerked to the left, then the beast swung his sword to the right, sending the new dead homeless into the wall behind him.

"I'll save him for later, although dead humans have little appetite for me... His ghost may be more lively. So goodnight, little girl."

The Hollow leaned down, opening his jaws - He would eat this girl, and move on. He could feel power surging in him - He was but a mere hollow now, but he could feel it... as if he would become something higher...

A man walked down the street, stepping through puddles just to watch them splash, thinking of what he would do next, what he had done to start with. The man wore a 6 on the sleeve of his black robe that gave a constant reminder of where he was from... Where he had left.

"I'll save him for later,"

The voice crept from a nearby ally way, and before he new it, the man was dashing toward the sound. "A hollow? Now?" He thought to himself, not thinking of the danger he might be running into.

"So goodnight, little girl."

The man rounded the corner of the ally just in time to see the beast begin to tear into the young soul. "Shu" He yelled, sending a force of pressure at the beast. He had already drawn the sword from the sheath tied to his left side and was ready to initiate this fight.

The Hollow felt something press against his side, and felt his talons dragging against the damp ground? Who could interfere at a time like this?! He was so close!! His jaws snapped, making that terrible crushing sound as he bit into the thin air. While the attack was little more than a push, it hurt him deep - Not physically, but mentally. He snapped his head up to look at where the blow came from - But there was no one there. Well, not where he stood. Instead, he saw a man wearing black, a sword in his hand. Wait.. could this be...?

"What is it you want, Shinigami?"

Whether than wait for an answer though, the beast struck - He threw his tattered sword with an unparalleled perception for a beast of his standing. The chipped and cracked blade soared as if a missile through the air, the tip, covered in blood and gleaming in the city lights, shot straight for the Shinigami's head.

"What is it you want, Shinigami?"

"My name is Ly-" The man was cut off as a blade soared toward him. With less then perfect reflexes, the man twirled as the sword passed him. Blood shot from the side of his face as he covered it with his free hand and let out a painful cry.

As the man looked back toward the hollow, he revealed his face, blood pouring out from under his left eye. "My Name is Shidaka Lyonin, but that won't matter too much to you after this." Lyonin said, showing pure hate and anger in his eyes. "I am the Lt. of Squad 6, and I have come here to kill you!"

Lyonin wasn't really the Lt., hell, he wasn't even part of the Squad anymore, but how would the beast know that? Making the hollow scared might just give him the upper hand in this fight.

"Now ready yourself for an honorable death you cowardice fool."

The Hollow leaned back slightly. The sword had struck, but the man simply jerked his head to the side, and when he looked back to Setoku, screaming something in pure hatred, all that was there was a gash under his left eye. This Shinigami... was no average one. Not at all.

"Is that so... She-dah-kah Leo-Nin..."

The words rolled odd out of his form - He couldn't pronounce it as correctly, as say, another shinigami could. No doubt it was the twisted part of him that had trouble enunciating. The beast took a step forward, allowing his spiritual pressure to press down on the boy. He was Lieutenant, he had said? Well, then the reiatsu would most likely have no effect on him, but it wasn't an attack - It was all part of his... Introduction.

"She-dah-kah Leo-nin! I am Shinamori Setoku, and I await this "Honorable Death" you speak of!"

The beast darted forward, his clawed fingers curling up into a fist as he closed the distance - His Talons pressing so hard into the concrete that it cracked, and shattered under him as he jumped at the final length between them. For a Devouring Beast, his reiatsu was insanely strong - No doubt he was near evolution.

"Now Die, Lieutenant She-Dah-kah!"

His arm pulled back, and as he came in for a landing directly in front of the Shinigami, he thrust his fist forward, so the momentum from the jump would be added to the punch he sent at the boys skull.

"Is that so... She-dah-kah Leo-Nin..."

The hollow was pronouncing his name weird, but Lyonin didn't mind. To him, all this was was a test to see if he really needed the help of the Soul Society.

The hollow stepped forward, and as he did, Lyonin felt his pressure upon him. he slid his foot backward, taking a fighting stance... so he would not stumble.

"She-dah-kah Leo-nin! I am Shinamori Setoku, and I await this "Honorable Death" you speak of!"

As the beast finished his what seemed to be mockery, he dashed toward Lyonin, shattering the ground as he came. Lyonin ducked as the hollow neared.

"Now Die, Lieutenant She-Dah-kah!"

As the beast flew toward him, Lyonin raised his blade, hopefully to knock him off target. As he raised the sword, he shouted, "SHO!" The push had done nearly nothing to the hollow though. At this rate, nothing would be able to stop him.

Lyonin could feel the spiritual pressure pressing hard against him as Setoku's fist flew at him, so instead of fighting it anymore, he let it overcome him, dropping him to the ground as he watched the hollow fly over him in a devastating strike that would have easily knocked Lyonin unconscious. Had the hollow seen him duck down? If he did, did he know it was from his spiritual pressure?

Setoku could feel his fist impact the kids face before it did, he was relishing that very fact so much - Then he realized it wasn't the kids skull that was offering resistance... But one of his spells. No matter, Setoku applied more strength to the punch, easily over coming the Kido spell - But something seemed off here. If this kid was a Lieutenant, well, from what Setoku heard from other Hollow, Lieutenants could easily take down Gillians, but this boy....

"Die, Shinigami..."

Setoku said as his fist was centimeters away. This fight was way to easy, wasn't it? As Setoku milled this over in his head, the boy suddenly collapsed to the ground, and Setoku stumbled over him, his fist instead impacting into a stray Trash Can - Sending the metal bin soaring through the alley way, and into a car parked out on the street over a hundred yards away. There was a paused, and suddenly, the cars alarms went off, the car itself lighting up as all the windows shattered out, and the metal bin shattered to nothing. Then... an explosion followed, the orange and red flames lighting up the alley way for only a moment. What had happened?! Was the boy really that quick?!

"How.. did..."

Setoku was staring at his fist, as if the boy wasn't even there. This was the boy's chance to get a shot off, the Hollow was obviously distracted by either his own strength, or what he assumed was the boys speed.

Lyonin flinched as a loud eruption went off in the street outside of the ally way. "Holy hell." He thought, "What if that would have been me?" While thinking this over in his head, Lyonin realized that the pressure that had been focused on him before wasn't quite as bad now... Almost divided.

Lyonin began pushing himself up to a stand again when he realized the hollow standing not too far away from him in a daze. This could be the chance for a strike, but could he hope to kill the hollow that easy?

Blotting the fear from his mind, Lyonin took off toward Setoku with his blade drawn back. As he neared the hollows back, he focused his spiritual pressure, attempting to throw the hollow off balance so that there would be no counter, but this hollow was strong.. Maybe too strong for such a basic tactic.

In pride, nearing the strike that he had estimated, Lyonin spoke out, "Here is your honor!"

The Shinigami had almost killed him. He truly had come so close to killing what could become... perhaps... one of the more dangerous Gillian. But he had messed up. How so? The boy was nearing in, his sword pulled back, and as he struck, he spoke...

"Here is your honor!"

Setoku turned, and threw up his arm, extending his fingers, he grabbed the blade under the hilt, actually grabbing the blade itself. There was a splash, and his dark blood gushed against the walls of the Alley, across the Shinigami's uniform, and across the Hollows pure white mask. Due to the Hollow reaching out and past the boys Shoulder, and grabbing the blade higher up, the sword had slashed deep into his forearm and bicep. It would leave a vicious scar, but, Setoku thought, a scar he would use to remember this boy by... so he could kill him later.

"You... came so close, Shinigami... You're no Lieutenant..."

The Hollow slammed the heel of his right talon foot into the concrete, cracking the ground below him so his foot dug in deeply. Using that as the anchor point, he yanked his arm back, and attempted to throw the boy past him and into a wall. Not an attack meant to harm, but more to hinder. To get this boy away from him long enough to escape. But would the throw even work? In his arrogance, as he was attempting it mid-way, he spoke..

"A Lieutenant might of actually been able to kill me by removing my mask from behind and shattering it before I even knew what had happened."

Lyonin let out a slight gasp as the hollow shot his knowledge of the truth at him. "How could I be so stupid?" Lyonin thought to himself. As he felt the blood running down his clothes, he also felt his feet leaving the ground. "This hollow... How did he-"

"A Lieutenant might of actually been able to kill me by removing my mask from behind and shattering it before I even knew what had happened."

Lyonin was now high above the ground, directly over Setoku. Quickly thinking, he shoved the sword down, aiming at the hollow's shoulderblade, but before he could see the strike happen, he was against the wall, sliding down to the concrete beneath. As he landed against the ground, he looked up, expecting the final blow to be on its way.

The Hollow let out a scream as the sword was shoved down through his bicep and into his shoulder - causing him to jerk. And when he did, both he and the sword - now shoved through his arm almost entirely - stumbled away from the boy as he soared into the wall. Setoku felt intense pressure in his arm... Had the boy sliced an important muscle to function that arm? Setoku reached up, and grabbed the sword by the hilt, and ripped it from his body. If the sword hadn't done any lasting damage, that less than careful removal sure as hell had to of.

"You're strong, boy... Perhaps not on level with a true lieutenant... but you'll get there... Go back to Soul Society... leave this place..."

The hollow seemed to be stumbling over his words. He held the boys sword in his good hand, tightly. Blood was pooling at his feet though, as the wound the boy left in his arm, and shoulder, begun to bleed profusely.

"But your sword... is now mine..."

A tear suddenly occurred, as if the air behind the hollow was fabric - The air moved to the side, as if everything behind the hollow was a painting on a curtain - and behind it lay eternal, seemingly never ending blackness. The hollow begun to shuffle back, essentially milling in reverse, until his body would fall behind the curtain... and he would fall into the darkness - His voice lingered behind, though, even as that tear in the fabric of time and space seem to sew itself back together.

"Return to Soul Society... and pray we never meet... again."

Unbeknownst to the boy, when the hollow emerged in Hueco Mundo's underground, his transformation into Gillian would finally begin. And the sword he had taken from him would soon meld with this seemingly dying hollow..

Lyonin watched as the hollow disappeared into thin air. Barely conscious, Lyonin could not quite make out what he was saying as he fled. All he knew was that he had survived... Barely. "M-my sword." Lyonin whimpered, reaching his hand toward nothing.

As He lay there unconscious, Lyonin dreamed, and the words "Return to Soul Society... and pray we never meet... again." echoed through his head. But he couldn't return, he had fled there to find his own strength. Did this really have any meaning behind it? Was he not going to find his own strength? Did he need the help of others? None of it made since.

Lyonin awoke later to find the blood under his eye caked over and still in pain. He stood, and began slowly limping away, looking for anyone who could see him and tend to his injuries.
