Mad Without Power
Walls of iridescent gold lined the halls she knelt in; Vast archways of stained glass framing her prayers in multicolored plethoras of light. This was her inner world. A place of tranquility where she and her Zanpakuto could meditate, though for Kodzuchi, it was always to reach and recite his lessons on the tenets.
Her eye twitching in silence as he nitpicked at her grievances with the third.
"The Third Tenet: Cleanse all, even thyself. You're attitude since graduation has greatly diminished and are on the path of wrathful behavior"
Junko stood up in irritation, growling as she stared up at his tall armored figure, willful and challenging as always. It seemed the only person she calmed down for was that master of hers.
"I don't have to get along with anyone here except Saina-San. I'm not that wrathful, I didn't punch that newbie yesterday didn't I? I know you're a stickler about the tenets, but being angry at dorks and feasting on the souls of the innocent are not alike. You think sins don't evolve and change huh? just as rigid as you, old man?" She teased and challenged him, though as always, he only looked at her with a stoic expression. She knew from the very moment he was realized to her that she'd have her work cut out for her, mirroring the same thought her master had before they both smirked
"Curb your tongue, and I do believe you might actually make some friends. Don't take such things lightly, loved ones are the very reason my tenets exist, and in time you will come to understand what I mean" He never explained himself further when he spoke in such ways, but before she could try and get more answers from him, the sound of a church bell rung all around them. A contact sign. Her inner world vanishing as she blinked her eyes and she was once again back, in the soul society.
Junko was roused from her meditation by a familiar face, one of the newer members of the 7th Divsion. Junko had snatched her out of Rukon much like Saina-San had done to her, though it didn't stop Junko from being irritated. Her slit eyes of auburn thinning momentarily as she stood up. A sheathed Kodzuchi in her left hand.
"Do you know how long it takes me to concentrate and do that? If you did, you would know this better have been important!"
"It is of upmost urgency, and The Captain wants us there aswell. It must be something important so you should be thanking me you know"
Junko scoffed behind her mask as she flicked her eyes elsewhere and had a suspicion of what this was over; missing soul reapers. It is the only occurrence she could think of that correlated with such an urgent matter. She hung her sword around her back as Kodzuchi had been retrofitted with a shoulder sling due to her affinity with The Nodachi. She wasted no time as she sprinted out of the many open rooms in 7th division's headquarters. She had hoped they could get more recruits before such a meeting happened, but she would take on every enemy she had to if it meant keeping her Lieutenant safe. She couldn't use Bankai yet, but she had honed her Shinkai quite well over her tenure. She couldn't help but itch at any chance to use it and grow stronger, her training difficult as only evil could allow Kodzuchi to fully realize his power of judgement. The fresh air of the seiritei flourishing through her stark white hair as she reached where all these annoying meetings took place.
Her eyes lit up the moment she saw her shining lieutenant, marching up to him with eyes he could recognize were irritated, but excited all at the same time; most were unable to make any expressions underneath her mask, but Tameshi always could somehow. She couldn't help but smile as she gave him a bow, his being the only sincere gesture he's seen her do. "It is good to see you lieutenant! I hope this is a good excuse to clobber some hollow cause I won't be getting any stronger just sitting around swinging at nothing" She said with a stomp of her foot, ornery as ever. She had a one track mind, and was determined to catch up to her mentor.
"I fear it won't be hollows we may have to fight" Kodzuchi thought to her.
"If this is about patrol schedules again-"
The Rest of the divisions would receive these emergency summons, members from each squad being selected with unknown criteria and were received their request to attend. There were a few captains who for there own reasons, have refused to attended, being busy or otherwise while other captains have decided to take more of their squad with them as an assurance in this uncertain times. The missing soul reapers had caused unease and paranoia to trickle into the still healing cracks of the soul society infrastructure. It was what made the newly appointed Info Corps so integral to the current stability of the military as now all information on division activity was shared among everyone under the mediation of the Corps members. One such fellow being a rather young member with an exceptional memory. He had become a common face among the military, and continued to broker peace among the captains so that in-fighting could be subdued before it got out of control.
He was a friendly, but quiet face who simply did his job; He also used his work to inquire about the new prospects that are cropping up in the division, working quite closely with the Lieutenant in the 7th Division to weed out any traitors among them. He was pretty confident among the new prospects that they hid their intentions well, or were here for far different reasons than such trickery and deceit. His eyes always searching and analyzing looking over the new crop of shinigami, propping up his glasses.
"This will be perfect, you will get to see the pecking order firsthand! That always send passions soaring when you realize the spirit pressure your betters around here carry. I am heading that way regardless, have a few more summons to deliver so you are free to follow me. I am quite eager to see what this is all about!"
