Grimmjow sat in the awkward silence for a moment, cursing under his breath, while Banira went on talking to the little Arrancar, and then Kuroki spoke up, causing Grimmjow's eye to twitch maniacally. "Maybe if you became stronger and stopped losing against Ulquiorra, then you could be a rank higher."
His right nostril started twitching as his rage built, "Watch it, kid! Where's Aizen anyway?!" Grimmjow demanded, "He is coming, isn't he?! Or are you two just wasting our time?"
Asun smiled widely as Banira began walking away with Miedoso, then walked over next to the new Espada, hanging casually on the back of his chair, "Welcome to the Espada, Numero Dos!" Asun greeted cheerily, then turned to listen to Kuroki speak. He ignored most everything Grimmjow had to say, Asun had never cared much for what the kitty said.
"What's your name, Espada?" Kuroki asked, while clearly examining the newcomer.
"Come on! Let's go for a walk around Los Noches." Banira said to Miedoso with a grin. He was about to protest, saying something about it being their duty to be present in the throne room, then she grabbed his hand and pulled him along. He had no choice but to follow. She looked down at him and giggled, probably at the remnants of him blushing, then said, "You know, you're adorable."
"L-lady Banira!" Miedoso exclaimed now that they were out of the throne room, "I don't think it's proper for someone in your station to be saying something like that!" He was blushing redder than before, "Especially to a mere Fracción!" She pulled him along, "A-ahh! Where are we going?" He almost tripped as they went.
“A meeting of family is never ever never a waste of time! Never ever!” Luna said brightly, a smile on her face.
"Pfft." Grimmjow scoffed from his chair. He tried not to pay attention to anything else Luna said. "I'm better off without 'em." He remarked to Sol Solis' bringing up of the Fracciónes. "It's been thirty years since they got themselves killed. I'm fine." In truth, he was the one that had gotten them killed, attacking Karakura Town on his own like that, but he didn't think about it. "And thanks, but no thanks." He said to her offer of tea, trying his best to keep ignoring Luna, acting childish. It was amazing that adding her to Sol Solis made them a better fighter.
He didn't remark on what Dos Espada had to say, but smirked at the Shinigami by the door. Maybe Banira would make him give her a ride on his back next.
Asun smiled, chuckling a little at Luna's refreshing behaviour, and then his eyes went wide when he saw the drawing of himself holding Grimmjow's hand. He managed to suppress his laughter, then said kindly, "That's a very nice drawing Luna!" Asun listened to what Sol Solis quietly. "Yeah, tea would be good." Asun replied to Sol Solis energetically, jumping into his seat and then crossing his legs and rocking one foot idly in the air. Out of nowhere, his stomach growled, right in the moment of silence too. He smirked, "Guess I'm hungry too!" he said laughing, "Has Jintsu got any food?" he asked Sol Solis and Luna.
Asun nodded to Izu Mikatira, then introduced himself, "I'm Asun Béttencourté, Novena Espada. I just joined too, a couple days ago. Geez you're formal, I couldn't pull it off..." Asun's eyes darted over to the soul reaper prisoner after Izu spoke to him, "Be careful calling Miedoso puny, or you might wake up with him standing over you and sticking his sword through your heart. I only get away with it 'cuz he's my buddy." Asun laughed, then took a sip of tea, and then drained the cup without any further ado.
Toshiro smiled he had been waiting for something along the lines of what Izu Mikatira said. "Well mister Espada #2 you come waltzing in floating your silly lttle words around but you just came in here annoucing that your the second Espada when," his voice growing louder ", you haven't proven your worth that damned postion." He roses his hand and pointed at Asun ", Asun I presume fight him and see if he's worth being Espada number 2," he asked Asun politely. He then looked and saw that the third Espada wasn't in the room what a let down he would've asked him to fight Izu.
Walked throught the halls with Zeal holding his hand tightly not wanting to lose him. She looked at the door that led to Azien's throne room, she was abit nervous at the moment wondering how the other Espada will welcom her into there ranks. She then heared a loud angry voice coming from the room Hito, Ban, Komo, Yoni were all scared. She was currently in her childform which was of a seven year old girl. She slowly opened the door to see what suprised her a soul reaper there yelling at a guy she never seen before. Zeals eyes were wide when he saw, he fought agaisnt Toshiro once and got beaten up pretty bad but not like the beating he gotten from Grimmjow.
Eloise walked up abit scared of what she was going to say thinking that it might cause some trouble. "Hi," she meekly said ", I'm the new Espada number 3 Eloise Beka and this is my boyfriend and hopefully to be husband Zeal Loom." When Zeal heared husband his blue eyes grew wide he knew she had a crush on him but nothing that big.
Miedoso watched Banira carefully while he listened to her, taking note of her balled up fist. "I thought you liked Ulquiorra. Why does he make you angry?" Miedoso thought about her question, he hadn't expected Banira to ask if there was a place he would like to go. "The roof." He said hesitantly, he had never told anyone about his special hiding place. "I like to sit on the roof of Las Noches, in the dark of Hueco Mundo..." He looked away, debating whether or not he should say anything else. "I feel uncomfortable under Lord Aizen's fake skies, like I'm lost, like I'm not at home. Being up there, looking out on the dark sands, I can clear my head. It might help you?" He asked awkwardly, he never spoke openly like this to outsiders of Asun's group.
Asun nodded in agreement to what Izu had to say about Aizen's judgement, then said to Toshiro, "I agree with what Izu says. Aizen's word is law." He forgot to call him 'Lord' Aizen, as usual, "I don't doubt the new Segunda Espada's power, and unless you have no talent whatsoever at detecting reiatsu, you shouldn't either. Aizen knows what he's doing." Asun paused for a second, looking over to Izu after he had finished speaking, "But I will fight him sooner or later, don't worry about that, shinigami." He didn't say 'shinigami' in a disrespectful tone, it was just a title to Asun. All of the older Espada knew of Asun's ambitions, knew that he wanted to become Primera Espada, the first, the strongest, but Izu didn't know it, not yet anyway. But there was one thing that none of them knew. When Aizen offered Asun a place in the Espada, he wasn't assigned to rank nine, he requested it. He wanted to fight his way to the top. That was his conviction, and he would never give up on it. Not even if it led to his death.
Asun smirked when Sol Solis ordered Izu and Toshiro to stop their quarrel, he admired her commanding nature. They would be fun to fight, when the time came, and it wouldn't be long before he challenged her. Not that he wanted to take her Rank, he just wanted to fight all of the strongest people, and after he had proven himself, he would take Rank One. "Oh, thanks Jintsu!" Asun said, happily snatching two of the pastries in each of his hands, then making quick work of devouring them, "Delicious!"
He looked up from the table, realizing someone else new had come into the room. "Heya, Eloise!" Good, another opponent!, he thought as he said it, "I'm Asun. Nice ta' meetcha!" A smudge of red, cherry danish, was on his cheek, but he had no idea it was there. "Want a.... What are these called again?" He asked, pointing at the cherry danishes. "They're really good!" He finished off his third one in a couple bites.
"Shut the hell up Soul Reaper, before I prove that I can kill you." "No, make me or are you going to hide behind your fathers reputation," he said with a smile. Toshiro had waited to fight someone for a while maybe Kuroki would fight him now. Toshiro was suprised that the third Espada was a little girl he thought that the third Espada would be older.
Eloise in her chair while she placed Hito, Ban, Komo, and Yoni down so that they can explore the place. She watched as Yoni walked infront of Luna her blue eyes staring at her watching her every movement; the other three stood beside of Eloise. Eloise ate already and was suprised at the soul reapers rudeness and judgment toward Lord Azien. She smiled when he challanged Kuroki to a fight he might be going over his head if he thought Lord Azien's son would lose to Toshiro.
"No, make me or are you going to hide behind your fathers reputation," Toshiro rebelled, Kuroki turned to him, placing a hand on his Zanpaktou. "Toshiro." the voice came from behind the Soul Reaper this time, his father's voice, Aizen's voice. "I do not recall saying you could enter my throne room." Kuroki put his hand back down by his side, his eyes followed his father to where he was sitting and then looked at the other Espada, but Kuroki continued to stand near to Toshiro, in case he tried anything. He was informed that his sister had run off to the Soul Society again, which would mean he wouldn't have her in the way when it came to fighting, she was always trying to show him up, well in Kuroki's eyes she was, mastering her bankai before he could, though the fights with the soul reapers in the soul society managed to get Kuroki to use his bankai, not that his father would care...or would he? He was a little excited and wanted to tell his father that he could use his bankai now, though his thoughts were interrupted by Toshiro again.
"Well Azien if you didn't give me permisson what are you going to do about it, and when are you going to let me and your son have a go at each other, or do you just think he'll die if he fought me the way I see it your still babying him," he looked over to Kuroki when he said it, obviously trying to see Kuroki's reaction. His reaction being one of pure rage as his eyes narrowed to glare at the soul reaper. "I can kill you without even using my Shikai!" Kuroki yelled at him, obviously extremely offended by his words, he took out his Zanpaktou and pointed it to Toshiro. "Come on then." the pure black blade gleaming in the light.
Yachiru was hanging onto Kenpachi as he ran through the forest, she could hear the bells on his hair, which made a cheerful sound to her, making her smile more than she was already was, occasionally giggling at Kenpachi's maniacal grin, it would never phase her, she liked seeing Kenpachi grin like that. He stopped when a girl spoke to Kenpachi who was sitting on a branch. She wished to fight him, which made Kenpachi grin more and Yachiru happier, seeing that Kenny was going to have fun. "Please play with Kenny!" she smiled, calling up to the girl. As she jumped down onto the floor Yachiru giggled and pointed to her. "You look like a ghost!" she continued to giggle, resting herself on Kenpachi's shoulder until he would tell her to get off and go somewhere 'safe'.
Tōsen sped off through the Garganta, leaving behind a trail of reiatsu for the others to follow along on. In seconds, he was in the right area, and opened the Garganta into Soul Society, high up in the sky above the battle between Kenpachi and Banira. Tōsen jumped out of the Garganta, followed by the Espada, and landed off to the side of Banira's battle.
Kenpachi dodged to the side of Banira's attack, but her blade glanced across his abdomen. Finally, she had made Kenpachi bleed by releasing her full power, but only slightly. Kenpachi laughed at her speeding past him with most of the force of her attack wasted, "Is that all you've got?!" But then he noticed out of the corner of his eye that Tōsen had arrived, along with a few Espada he didn't recognize. Kenpachi's attention left Banira, and was now focused on the new arrivals. He turned to look directly at Tōsen, "It's been a long time, Kaname."
"Do not address me with such familiarity, Zaraki!" Tōsen snapped at him immediately, his brow drawn down in anger. "Lord Aizen has ordered that we stop you! Lady Banira, please remove yourself from this place at once!"
Kenpachi smirked at Tōsen, "What's the problem Kaname? Do you want to have a battle between two former Captains?" Kenpachi tightened his grip on his Zanpakutō in excitement. "Why don't all of you attack me at once? That way this'll be more fun!!"
Tōsen began to draw Suzumushi, but stopped when it was only half-way out. "Kenpachi!! Do not tempt me! I can kill you without any help from them!"
"Oh? Did you forget about that time you used your Bankai on me? You forget how you lost?" Kenpachi smirked, "You can't beat me alone, so you should all attack! That way, one of you will be more likely to live and come back to fight me again!"
