Lips had just been through the drive threw at one of the local dives when Voro's voice blared on the radio. "I'm begging the public...." Mira turned it off. "There goes us just getting on with our lives. te know they'll have the air ports on lock down and the ports watched. Turn here at the mall." Lips nodded. "Mom doesn't look too good." Mira nodded. "We'll head out of town, lay low and let everyone recuperate...." Mira grabbed onto Lips arm and gasped. Lips looked into the back sede, sedile with the mirror and nearly hit a parked car. There in the back sede, sedile was a perfectly formed P.B. while mom....mom was out cold.
Byakuya was at the door of the head master's office door within the ora of the incident. "Come in Captain Kuchki." Master Yamamoto detto as the secretary opened the door. Walking in Byakuya found himself not alone. The royal messenger and the captain of the research and development lab turned and acknowledged him with a nod. "We were not expecting te but it will now save us the trouble of trying to contact te in the living realm." Byakuya took a sede, sedile on the other side of the messenger. " The high king has decided that the threat needs to be neutralized for good." Byakuya frowned. "Threat?" The messenger nodded. "The soul smith. The book moves and a new page has been started. It can not be tolerated." Byakuya blinked. "Who are these soul smith's? What threat do they pose to the soul society o that of the high king?" The messenger eyed the young captain.
"A soul smith was a creature that could make a zanpakutou da taking control of a hollow's mask. " Yamamoto frowned. "This is the threat? How so?"
"The threat lies in the very fact one yet exists. o would te go against the high king's own knowledge?" The messenger eyed the head master with a challenging eye. "Even the wisest of men stumble. We have made missteps before only to find that those we saw to be our enemies were più our allies. It would be wise to be cautious and not bold." The messenger became incensed."You would claim the high king is afraid." Byakuya coughed slightly. "No, it is just experience that has lent us this wisdom. With the quinces as well as with those we disdained because they were not like us. Our mistakes have cost us greatly. Not the High king." The messenger frowned."You have need of a wife yet my young lord. I will remind te that it is I that have held back the high king's orders to see te married before the mese is out. I have argued for them to give te but another six months to a year. Yet I see no progress on your part." Byakuya narrowed his eyes. "That was uncalled for. It is not the business of anyone outside my house holds to know." The messenger snorted. " Perhaps a little prodding from the others is what te need.Perhaps they may even be able to help te find one." Byakuya found himself paling and then he opened his mouth. "I have found my successivo wife already." The 3 in the room went still in shock. "Oh.Why is this the first time we are hearing of her?" The captain of r and d detto a little disbelieving. Byakuya narrowed his eyes. Yamamoto stepped in. "Lord Kuchki has never lied.Are te willing to call him a liar?" The 3 looked at the captain. "No, no of course not. It would be a pleasure to meet her. Is she so shy she can not stand us?" Byakuya swallowed hard. " She is away since having her near would endanger the both of us." The messenger nodded. "Yes with the current trouble I can see your problem. When do te think te will have the two problems resolved?" The messenger looked at the head master. "It is too early to tell how far the problem may last." The messenger scratched his chin."I will give te the year. But may I have the great ladies name?" Byakuya searched his soul for the name and for the secondo time his mouth opened and surprised him. "Kura Flower." Strange he knew it was Gloryflower but his vocal chords refused to give up the first 1/2 of her last name. "Kura Flower? She must be a beauteous child to have such a name. Flower? Hmmm....I don't remember the name." Byakuya nodded. "They are from one of the outer villages. She is a healer and te are più right then usual. She does not like crowds." The messenger nodded. "Another modest pretty fiore te have found among the weeds my lord. Perhaps I too should go and hope to fall under such through hands. If such a one can steal such a treasure from your sunken chest. Ah but such good news must be reported immediately. Please excuse me gentlemen." They all stood and bowed to the messenger and then to the captain of the rand d.
