Soifon sat on a nearby building watching the exit of where the Duos normally met. Enoch had told her the location, saying he saw no reason to hide the location and asking her to make sure they didn't do anything stupid while he was being punished. She told him she would decide on her own whether or not to do so, but it seemed Enoch didn't really care either way.
Ultimately, she decided not to intervene, because she wanted to see the groups real colors and she worried that if she interfered she wouldn't be able to test their trust worthiness. As she expected Enoch had no loyalty to the group, rather it seemed to be something he used at his convenience. While, this made him untrustworthy, since he could easily be doing the same to the whole Seireitei, it also meant that he provided a foothold into the Duos' organization. One, which wouldn't mind being a double agent if he felt it worked to his advantage.
But Soifon pushed such thoughts from her head and merely watched and waited, there ws no need to rush these things... in fact rushing could have a very negative effect.
Kera sighed and got off the wall. Shion didnt even say anything to her.
'Guess hes still angry.' She thought to herself and quickly left the room. Before she exited the door she felt watchfull eyes staring at the exit to the meeting room. Kera just shrugged,
'If they want to know where were at so badly so be it.' She answered her own thoughts and walked out. She spread out her senses as she exited Finding the person who was watching. Kera smirked,
'The Captain Lady Soifon.' She thought with little suprise. She then turned her body and head to face Soifon and smiled at her. With the same mock salute as earlier she flash stepped to the training grounds.
Sense the Matsuki was getting out she didnt bother hiding her second Zanpakuto, Kuroi. As she arrived at the training grounds it was empty not a soul in sight, This Kera was glad about. She wasted no time unsheathing Aki and Kuroi falling into her fighting stance as soon as both blades were out. With a steady sigh, Kera raised her spiritual pressure Only alittle to give her an extra bust with her training. She shifted through her forms quickly and percisely. She learned a long time ago one mistake could and mostly likely would kill you. Kera's feet and began moving faster as was the rest of her body. soon she became a blur on the training grounds small sand tornatos formed where she did a fast slash or spinning dodge against her invisable apponent. She planned on training till Shion called them back.
Suzu nearly grinned ruefully when she was asked to hold the fort down. (The lessons she had learned, though, were her worst habit that she had nearly no hope for breaking, so she the grin came out as a straight line.) 'With things as crazy as they are, there won't be much to hold on to.' But she nodded nevertheless before she stood from the floor, raised a hand in farewell, and departed.
As soon as she had left through the door, she discovered Captain Soifon by the Matsuki exit. Suzu had one foot in raised midstep with her head turned in the captain's direction. There was a silent minute between the two before Suzu raised her hand once more. "Ah," she started, breathing the word out as if she were deflating. She was caught between leaving things at 'Ah' and going to Kera to practice with her or staying to show the Matsuki was respectable enough. At last, Suzu thought it better to train. She turned fully to the captain and bowed. "Thank you for waiting."
With that she went to the training grounds and watched Kera fight her 'opponent' until the girl turned in Suzu's direction. She decided she would let Kera decide if they could spar or not.
Kazuki smirked and slowly walked past Shion. A grin of anger and depression wide on his face. His hands in his pockets and his blind eyes closed.
Kazuki walked up toward the entrance and a wave of spiritual pressure hit his body. Someone had be waiting this whole time. He he was right then it was the beautiful Soifon. Someone that Kazuki wouldn't mind seeing again for the second time. Even if she seemed to be a empty shell of a person.
OOC: Omfg, I'm sorry everyone for the delay. Things have been popping up IRL lately and I haven't had much time for anything on the computer.
Time to get back on track.
Shion watched as, one by one, his comrades left the room. He followed closely after them as he saw that they had all taken their leave. As soon as he left the hideout, he sensed a familiar reaitsu, but not one of the Matsuki. Captain of Squad Two, Soifon, whom he had already talked to earlier, seemed to be keeping a close eye on the Matsuki. Although she was not exactly the person he wanted to talk to, she had connections with the person whom he did.
Shion kicked his foot backward, flash stepping in front of the building she sat on. He then leaped straight up, soaring to the top of the building. When he arrived, he gave her a quick bow before preparing to explain himself. "Captain Soifon, a word?"
"Like you said, Enoch had to be punished for a whatever reason earlier, right? Well, since, like you said, he wasn't able to attend the meeting, where we spoke of a crucial part of this entire 'Sayuchi Dimension' ordeal, he doesn't exaclty know what's going on. Is it possible that you can bring Enoch to the meeting between the SEC and the Matsuki tomorrow? I doubt I'd be able to find him myself, and I don't have time to spend searching."
Shion had sat down on the building as well, but a bit of a distance from Soifon. He didn't want to come on like Kazuki did, that would be, bluntly put, damn embarassing.
OOC: With my next post, we'll be moving on to the next day and the meeting. Crucial times coming up. :o
Soifon looked at Shion out of the corner of her eye, "I don't see the point. Its not like he has much of a choice in the matter and he certainly does not need to know. All that matters for a member of the Special Forces is the mission, that is all he needs to know and he will get the job done. Will your meeting with us cover that much information and in a way that it can not simply told to him at a later time?"
She didn't like any of these Duos... none of them seemed to have any discipline and regard for the chain of command, and she in no small part blamed Shion for this. He after all, had let them run free and grow complacent. Enoch was more than enough a demonstration of that. Had she known about this affair before she would have kept Enoch away from them. He was the insubordinate type to begin with, so any negative influence would be worse than if he was just the average soldier. However, for all that, it was the insubordinate ones that, when reigned in, were the best soldiers. They tended to think quickly and independently.
OOC: Damn it Luzifer, can't have a single character who doesn't hate Shion, can you? :/:closedeye It gets tiring. BTW, I expected to get an answer in that post, now we've got to prolong the time skip to whenever this conversation ends.
"Well, exactly when does the SEC plan to depart? If they depart not long after the end of the meeting, then no, it can't wait."
Shion sighed, getting a vibe that Soifon wasn't exactly fond of the Matsuki itself. "There's a couple of....alterations to the plan that will be explained at the meeting next morning, so it can't wait much longer than the meeting." He layed down on the building, holding his head in hands. "It's just unlucky for the entire society that the Sayuchi showed up at such a time, but it's not like we can do anything to stop it."
"So?" Shion asked, arching an eyebrow. "Yes or no?"
Soifon thought about a moment... "Fine... I suppose we'll finish his punishment later... He'll be there but he's my soldier from now on, remember that?" she looked down at Shion as she stood, "I won't have you stealing soldiers from my squad. Any orders you wish to give must be give to me in the form of a suggestion, and I'll consider whether to let you borrow him. He is my soldier again, I let him off his apron strings too long and now they must be put back on."
With that Soifon left.
Kera wiped her forehead with the back of her hand. She had sensed Suzu before she did her final steps of the form she was completeing. Kera sheathed her zanpakutos and looked at Suzu from the middle of the training grounds. She quickly put up her normal smile and waved at Suzu and also began walking towards her.
"Hey Suzu, what brings you here?!" She asked yelling across the training grounds in a happy voice. Kera had to shake her head when her bangs began to stick to her face and in her eyes. She felt nasty even though she was only covered in dirt and lightly sweating. As se got closer and walked up infront of Suzu she put on her best im happy your here smiles.
"You waiting for Shion to signal the next meeting?" She asked nicely. She could feel it in Suzu's Energy that she wanted to train.
"I dont think we'll have much time to spar each other." She said thinking about how much time had passed by. Kera's eyes scanned the girl infront of her unlittle uneasy, shes never really talked to Suzu but all she got off the girl was friendly waves. So Kera relaxed alittle bit, a little easier sense her muscles were a bit loosened by the exercises she was doing.
Well, Kera certainly seemed happy enough that Suzu was there. Yet, hadn't Shion talked to her about fake smiles not so long ago? Her head tilted to the side ever so slightly as she pondered over the possibility of being fooled. She merely "Hn"'d her doubt away as Kera continued to speak.
As soon as the girl relaxed, Suzu took the oppurtunity to question her. "Why did you join the Matsuki?"
OOC: Alright, moving on.
Shion was actually quite stunned by the words Soifon had spoke before taking her leave. Enoch....her soldier? now, it was true that Enoch wasn't necessarily his favorite person in the Matsuki, but one thing was certain. Enoch was like Shion, and the rest of the Matsuki, born with a weird talen that some had feared would not be accepted by the normals of the Society.
Whether he liked it or not, Enoch was a comrade of Shion, and the rest of the Matsuki. Shion truly didn't give a damn who tried to take one of his comrades away from him, that simply would not happen.
After he regained posure, he opened his mouth to comment on what she had said, but alas, it was too late. Trapped in his own thoughts for too long, Soifon had already taken her leave. Shion stood to his feet and sighed, not sure exactly how things were going right now. Good, bad, it was all just so unclear. "Damn....."
He prayed for the well-being of the Matsuki shortly afterward.
There they all stood. It was the next morning, and the Matsuki had all taken their places in the meeting room of the Shinigami Enforcement Corporation's main building. Shion was beginning to grow tired of this place, but was almost assured that this was one of the last times he would have to spend time under such pressure, surrounded by such powerful soul reapers who, chances are, didn't accept him or the rest of his kind.
"Now, I'm not going to bead around the bush or waste time in getting the information that we need to begin this operation. Shion Kimagi of the Matsuki....what is your decision?" It was the man from before(both times) who spoke these words. There was another thing that Shion was growing tired of: his voice.
"We've come to the conclusion that....we'll follow through with your plan."
The man was happy to hear these words, but just before speaking, Shion held his hand up, stopping him in the act.
"Although, there is a couple of things that we need to set straight before the Matsuki can truly be in line with you on this mission." Shion was somewhat excited to see the reaction of those in the room once they heard what he had to say. "First of all, we're only going to be sending myself and 3 other Matsuki members on this mission, totaling 4. Risking the entire Matsuki force would be a stupid move all on its own."
"What's this? What is your reason for pulling this stunt, exactly?" The man said, intrigued by Shion's words.
"Well, if we were to all go and all die, then you'd be done with this entire Matsuki business and could call it a day. I want to make sure that that doesn't happen." Shion felt as if he had the upper hand in this conversation by now. "Number 2....because we have taken away from our own forces, we request that you had on to yours, just to balance it all out."
"It would be a bit inconvenient, but....I believe that does make sense. Although, looking down at the situation the Society is in right now, don't expect to get out with all of our most powerful Shinigami, Kimagi."
With a devilish smile on his face, Shion nodded.
"So, a question. Exactly which of your members have you chosen to take with you on this mission?"
This was the hard part. Shion was deadly afraid of the outcomes of his choice, but he knew they had to be made sooner or later. No getting around that. "My first choice? I've been thinking about this entire ordeal ever since our meeting last night, and making such crucial decisions was definitely not easy....although, my first choice was pretty easy."
"Kera Enna." Shion said aloud, then shot his head toward the girl. He took a few steps over to the girl, lowering his head next to her own. He then whispered a short speech to her, hidden from the ears of the rest in the room. "Now Kera, there's a few reasons why I made this decision, the most important of the being that I trust you. You said you could change, and I know damn well that you can. I know that you may not favor our new comrades, but you've given me your word that you would work with them just as you would with me, and that's something that a lot of people can't bring themselves to do. So, your not gonna let me down, right?"
"Good. Now, continue." The man said. He was seemingly beginning to tolerate Shion, which was a suprise to the boy himself.
"Kazuki, Shinohara, Momochi." Shion took a pause between each of his names, simply for effect. He then moved toward Kazuki and sighed, whispering a few words to him as well. "I don't have much to say to you, other than this: 1. It's not like I could really stop you anyway, right? And 2. You can repay me by hookin' me up with one of those crazy Zanpakuto scabard's." With a grin, Shion moved back to his spot.
"Alright then, I believe you still have one last choice to make, Shion."
"Yes, I do, don't I?" This was probably the toughest choice of them all. The final decision...it was possible that whomever Shion didn't pick could end up hating his guts. That rule mainly applied to Ziraku, seeing as Enoch already had a large amount of distain pointed toward Shion. "My final choice......"
All ears listened intently on exactly what Shion had to say. The silence was almost frustrating, and the frustration was only furthered by what Shion would say next.
"Hey, this is a pretty tough decision....can we take 5?"
Sighs, complaints, and blurts of annoyance rang throughout the room. Although, not all seemed to feel this way about Shion's.....attitude.
"5 minutes...." The man said. "I suppose it wouldn't hurt. But I expect an instant answer when this is all over with."
"Yes sir." Shion said before turning to his group, all while keeping an eye out to see if Soifon really did bring Enoch to the meeting. "Anything you all have to say? This is a pretty important meeting, and I want the SEC to know the exact feelings of all the Matsuki."
"Also....this could be our last get together before leaving for the mission, which some of may not be surviving through. So, speak now."
4 minutes, 41 seconds.
Kera had smiled at the girls question then looked at her completely serious.
"To change." Was all she said and flash stepped out of sight. The next morning she wasnt to happy going to this meeting with the Society people but she did any way. She didnt want to disappoint the Matsuki and sure as heck not Shion. As she was in the meeting she calmly stood with the rest of the Matsuki with her hands resting comfurtably behind her back. When Shion said her name she swore she almost passed out. But really what got her was what Shion had said as he talked to her.
'He trusts me...'Kera thought almost not believing what she heard. How could she let the only person she knew trusted her be let down by stupid actions. Kera nodded and whispered back before Shion turned back around.
"Never.." After the shock she closed her eyes and continued listening to then conversation going on around her. Her heart was beating faster then she wished, Excitment had raced through her body as soon as Shion said she was going. She could feel Aki and Kuroi's escitment as well.
Enoch and Soifon walked towards the meeting, "How was going back?" Soifon asked.
A vague grin slipped across Enoch's face, "It was like I had never left!"
Enoch came in last of all the people, following close behind Soifon. He looked none the worse for wear, his punishment, whatever it might have been, leaving no scars or wounds. His attitude obviously had also not changed. The shinigami forced him to stand with the rest of Matsuki, something he resented greatly. As far as he was concerned he wasn't even a part of them. He was Enoch de Sophia et Sophia and he would be damned before he was anything else.
He visibly sneered when Shion began speaking. When had the man gained the right to make decisions for everybody else? Hadn't he spoke some bullcrap about trying to be their "equal" more than a leader? And now here he was making these decisions for everyone else! Sure, Enoch imagined in the meeting they had all made their requests, like the idiotic sheep Matsuki was, but in the end they left it all up to Shion, the blind, narcissistic fool to make the decisions. Enoch was completely ashamed to be standing within a couple feet of these people.
Finally, Shion, in his pseudo-humility called a meeting in the last five minutes. He wanted to hear what everyone thought just so that he could show them how little it mattered. Well, Enoch was not in the mood to have a bit of his crap.
"Idiot! Who died and made you my leader? I never authorized you to make my decisions for me and I sure as hell am not going to start letting you now. Make whatever decision you want, but I'm going, whether you like it or not! Neither I nor anyone else has time for anymore of your little useless meetings!" Enoch sneered viciously before turning his back on this whole pointless affair, "Consider this my formal resignation from Matsuki. You people have served your purpose and I have no more need of you than I do a boil. Now, if you don't mind I have better things to do than ways my time with idiotic pleasantries!"
With that Enoch strode towards the exit. He couldn't believe these people. The enemy was getting stronger, the outlook, more bleak, and they were wasting their time with diplomacy, pretending to be in a bargaining position with someone who held the cards. Shion had no cause for his hubris and he and all of Matsuki would be smote thanks to his arrogance and Enoch was not going to follow that fool into hell. He had to kill that Koshiro bastard and end this whole mess before needless deaths occurred. That was what assassins like him were for.
Kazuki listened to Shion and laughed. He was right. Kazuki would have gone anyway it went. This was going to be a great chance to prove himself to the whole soul society.
"So you want one also? Well if you act nice and kill more of the enemy then me maybe we can talk something over." Kazuki held a grin on his face. Then that grin was replaced by a grim smug. Enoch as once again being his old self. This heated his soul to body high. In the blink of an eye Kazuki was standing before Enoch with his fist cocked back. He held Enoch by the shirt and was slightly lifting him from the ground. His words came out loud and very clear.
"You for one didn't have to join the rest of us. We didn't get on are knees asking you to join. You made that decision. Yours and your alone.....If you feel something told any of us then speak now. We respect Shion because he is for the Leader. He is the person that leads us and he has done a Damn good job. So what the hell is wrong with you? From the time of the first cauld you have been acting even colder toward everyone. Mainly Shion. What is wrong with you. Are you going mad? Tell us we are here to work together......But you work alone. Your to good for the rest of us.....Right."
Enoch just looked him in the eye, "Either punch me, kill me, or put me down. I don't have time to waste while your decide whether I'm worth it or not. I join matsuki because at the time it was useful. It has now ceased to be so. And I could give less of a crap whether you respect that bag of manure, and I could also care less whether you think I'm worthless or not. And no, I'm not here to work with you. I'm here for two reasons, and neither of them need involve you. And right now you barbarians are standing between me and both of my reasons for fighting this little war so either let go or kill me and end this!" Enoch than waited impatiently for Kazuki to make up his mind. Enoch wished to himself that someone with a quicker mind had decided to grab him.
(OOC: Kyuubi, did you make sure that you reread the fixed post?)
At the meeting When Shion "almost" finalize his last decision, He requested a 5 minutes recess, the audience was in alot of complaints because they seem eager to know. Ever to be known that Enoch and kazuki are bickering of the fact of respecting Shion as the leader, as usual Enoch befouled the mood of the clan
Shinmiri was in the audience because she was still part of SEC but not for long. No doubt she also react to Shion's decision as making a cute puckered up face. Ziraku chuckled when he see Shinimiri from afar. Maybe he should go with Shion, even he was in doubts. If He's able to go, his feelings will eventually bears in until the end of the mission or untimely of his death.
The meeting was at recess, Ziraku took the chance to speak Shion without hesitation. "Shion, I would like to speak to you." He spoke straightforwardly to Shion, "it may seem you're a little indecisive but it goes to show you that you're holding back." Harshly Ziraku pinned him, but he only speaking of the truth. "Just go ahead make your decision with your first and absolute thought, we don't have the right to hate you, even if we were not be in the same clan or so." Ziraku Spoken and walked away to let Shion, take his moment to absolute his decision.
Shinmiri Relaxed in her sit, watching the Matsuki, murmuring, and she saw Ziraku was speaking with Shion then walk away. "Hmm, why Brother speak and walk away like that, is he mad?" she questioned but it seem no one was to answer that question because she wasn't facing toward anyone.
Kazuki was losing his cool. His mind said kill him but his heart said no. Their was much going on. Kazuki wouldn't allow him to talk down on the Matsuki. Saying we were of no use anymore. It boiled Kazuki's blood. He could fell it bubbling. It was so strong. It was like someone was holding a match to his stomach and the flames were spreading across his whole body. Then without thinking Kazuki punched Enoch and let him go. It wasn't his hardest but it could easily break a boulder. Kazuki didn't want to have the blood of a comrade on his hands.
"Do what you want......You have on pride. Your dark eyes will never see anything but just that. Darkness....." Kazuki turned and walked back toward Shion. He cursed and then laughed. That man was a fool. To lose allies like the Matsuki. That could prove to be one of his dumbest moves.
Enoch would have sighed if he could, but his jaw had broken under the force of Kazuki's punch. The pain didn't bother him in the slightest, he had suffered far worse for millenia. But what annoyed him was the fact that now he'd have to go to fourth division and waste MORE time while his jaw was fused back together...
Only one of the bloody matsuki would have, in the process of ending something, wasted even more of Enoch's time. This was such a waste... people were going to die. Enoch sighed... he had long ago passed the point he needed and now he tried to minimize deaths that were not needed, but barbarians like them didn't understand that... all they cared about was honor and pride.
Suzu merely watched as Kazuki dealt a blow to Enoch's jaw. If that was going to happen throughout the mission in the Sayuchi Dimension, she would be more than glad to volunteer to stay behind. At the same time, her respect began to dwindle once more as Shion had, so far, not intervened before it came to physical abuse. If Shion came in to stop them now, it would be pointless, since Enoch wouldn't continue so useless a fight. 'We need to move along...'
So, she turned to Shion and asked somewhat harshly: "Why do you bother asking our opinion once more?" While it was all well and good that he considered his teammates, it was a waste of valuable time and effort. When it came to something as important as this situation, Shion would have to assert himself as leader and just make the decisions necessary. He needed to care less about what others thought of him and more about getting things done.
Kazuki had felt the bone break. He silently cursed himself and lowed his head. His hand was shaking. It had been for a while today. Maybe it was stress. Maybe something more. Kazuki didn't know or care. He was thinking about how Shion would take him breaking the jaw of a member of the Matsuki. Kazuki had no idea what to say. His mind was lose in a blind rage of anger. He didn't trust the Soul society. They didn't want to help them. They just want to get them out of the way. Kazuki wouldn't be suprised if the Soul Society tried to kill the remaining Matsuki member while they were away.
"Shion. Tell me something. What is this all about. I understand that you want to be fair about this and give everyone a chance, but I feel that this is beyond our ability. I'm not saying that your a bad leader i'm only saying that we don't really need to have a say so in this. Anyway it goes it is you that must tell us what to do. I don't trust the Soul Society but I will help protect it. For those that have yet to pass on."
ooc: So much argueing O_O
Kera was the silent Watcher as Enoch started ranting about Shion and why he was with the matsuki then watched as Kazuki and Enoch started argueing. Kera was suprised at the act of violence that accured,Her eyes widened at seeing Kazuki throughing a punch, even more of a suprise was He broke Enoch's jaw. With out hesitation She disappeared and stood in front of Enoch no more then 2 feet away. She glared at him then turned and glared at Kazuki
"I believe Shion, said that there is to be no more fighting with in the Matsuki." She said directed at Kazuki for throughing the punch then at Enoch for being...well Enoch. Kera then looked at Enoch again and poked him in the chest.
"No one cares what you think. No one cares if you hate something. No one cares if you want to disobey orders. Do you understand Enoch?" She asked her voice much harsher then shes ever had it. She dropped her hand that was poking Enoch then raised it back up to his face. Not careing if he was going to kill her or decide to jump away. Her fingers gently Touched Enoch's face where his jaw was broken. She focused her spirit energy into Enoch's Broken jaw concitating on mending the bones and tissue. A soft Green glow had formed between her hand and Enoch's face. It took a few minutes but the Break was soon healed and almost as good as new.
"You jaw needs time to heal by itself. I only helped the healing prosses along by mending the bones and tissue. As you probably already knew." She said to Enoch and turned around facing Kazuki.
"Next time Ignore him. Best thing you can do." She said and ducked her head taking a few steps forward but remained between Enoch and Kazuki.
"Im not trying to be a leader or taking Shion's place on this matter but Shion has more stuff to worry about then Two idiotic Children." She said The last part with a slight growl. She knew Kazuki might argue back but wont try and kill her. But Enoch she didn't know what he would do. She turned her head to the side and her eyes looked at Enoch in a glare.
"I owed you for healing my arm by the way." She said stating a fact. Turning her head back facing Kazuki keeping an eye on him. Her right hand rested on Aki incase Enoch got violent.
Enoch just glanced at Kera and without even the slightest hint of hesitation said, "Thank you". It didn't really bother him to thank someone who had actually saved him some time. But that didn't change the fact that he wasn't going to listen to Shion or anyone else. It didn't change the fact that he ought to do this alone... that way... only Enoch had to die, rather than a large force of Shinigami. Enoch's fate was the same whether he lived or died so he could sacrifice his life without fear, but these idiots didn't realize that. These barbarians only thought in terms of wars.
Then he saw where Kera's hand was and became aggrevaited, "You think I will get violent? You think I am a threat? When have I EVER attacked someone head on? When have I EVER physically injured someone needlessly? If you think about it you'll know I never do. You may not trust me. You may think I'm insane and crazy. You may think I'm a coward. And you may think I'm a fool. I don't care. But never think that I am the type to injure without purpose. For that is what separates me from you! You blood soaked murders!"
He had to leave... he was going beyond what he had intended. He glanced out of the corner of his eye at Soifon whose face seemed even but to Enoch, one who had worked with her for years, he knew she was satisfied. Enoch had realized a while back that she had not told him about what was going to happen, for the sheer reason of making him explode in anger when the meeting came. She probably wanted to drive a wedge between Enoch and Shion and try regain her influence over the cynical assassin. But Enoch had read that move already, and had decided to play along. He had overreacted for the sheer purpose of making her believe that he had defect, though to a degree he had. He needed to distance himself from Matsuki, but that didn't mean he would be running to his captains coattails. He needed to maintain a certain distance from everyone. It would make things easier when he had to leave.
Still, he had overreacted but he hadn't lied completely either. He had merely overstated things and acted angrier than he actually was. But he meant what he said. Shion was worthless as a leader, and Shion had NO right picking his fate for him. Enoch knew his fate, and he was going to have it.
Kera Hid her eyes with her bangs. She was upset that Enoch had said she didnt trust him, Heck he was one of of the few people that she at least could depend on. But the argueing the anger she couldnt handle to many times shes seen it out of control, to many times Violence had started, To many times shes been to the hospital.
"Enoch, i know the way im acting right no says i dont trust you and Maybe even shows you i think your a threat. To tell you the truth you are one of the few poeple that i can call on help and might show. Please dont take my actions the wrong way. Before you even know why i do them. " She said and looked back at him and truely smiled. She could feel he wanted out of this place and she couldnt blame him.
"Besides isnt my back turned towards you. Im facing Kazuki." She said joking with that same smile on her face. She kept her hand on Aki but relaxed her body still in between the two but no longer feeling the need to protect her self or reframing the two from an act of violence.
"Ive seen so much violence, Please dont blame my reflexes for adapting over the years." She calmly said and turned back around facing Kazuki.
Something was up. The one thing Suzu could set aside was the fact Enoch had thanked Kera: he wasn't ungrateful, after all. A -huge- cad, at times, but not the kind of ratfink to bite the hand that fed him; healed him, in this case.
In all the time she had seen Enoch, never before had he become so dramatic over a simple reflex of another person. That led Suzu to conclude once more that something was amiss.
Once more, the program's lessons kicked into full drive. Observance came into full focus, as did her expression for the first time since she had been with the Matsuki members. Kera had surely noticed the finality in Enoch's voice, as well, which probably caused her to answer the trust issue.
"Since we're bloody murderers, you can leave us to drown in each other's blood," she said in her monotone voice.
Suzu decided to play along for the time being.
Let me lay something out for all of you. As you've probably witnessed, there have been a large amount of arguments in this RPG, even though it's still in somewhat of an early stage. Well I'm fed up with all the bull shitake mushrooms.(Still can't curse. :() Bottom line: NO MORE DAMN MAJOR ARGUMENTS. The only arguments that I will allow are ones that will add something to the story, which will have to be approved by myself in the process of it forming. This is an RPG, not a debate house/boxing ring.
So, I'm nullifying all argumental parts of all the latest posts except for the one part of that one post where Enoch quitted. *sighs* Now....
Shion looked down on Enoch as he told him that he had had it, and finally decided to leave the Matsuki. Shion was actually somewhat happy about his decision, thinking that things would now go a lot smoother if the rotten apple in the bunch was to leave, although another part of him knew that he had failed to be a leader that Enoch would respect, and that hurt him on the inside. He didn't dare show it, though.
"Ok." Shion said, blankly. "That's your decision, and I can't, nor will I, do anything to stop you. Although I'm partly appreciative of the fact you've decided to leave, because we really don't need you in the least, I still know that the reason for you leaving is partly because of you feel as if I failed you as a leader, and I can accept that. Always had to be just 1 who thought that, right?"
"Anyway, now that you've left, I don't really give a damn about what you do, or you in whole, go if you want, but don't go alone. Comrade or not, I don't wish death on fellow soul reapers." With a sigh, Shion left the subject completely and, possibly, did the same with Enoch. He returned to his spot before the desk and sighed. "Ziraku Kenzuichi will also be traveling with us."
"Very well....due to us having to increase our own forces, we'll need a few hours to get everything straightened out. Do you believe that the Matuski can prepare to leave in a few hours?"
"Ok then, I believe we're done here. Meet us at the north end of the society at around 2:00 PM this afternoon. Anything that you all need to have done needs to be done in this time, seeing as you may not be returning."
Out of the blue, Shion extended his hand to the man.
"We....we are, comrades, right? The Matsuki....and the rest of the Soul Society?" For some reason, Enoch leaving had more of an effect on him that he expect, as he somewhat began to fear that he could lose any other comrade just as easily. This was a feeling that nobody could begin to fathom, so Shion decided to keep it bottled up. He seemed to do that a lot with his emotions, but he didn't have much of choice, did he?
"Um...yes. Yes, we are." The man shook Shion's hand, with an awkward smile. "Anyway, Matsuki, we look forward to seeing you. Let's hope that we can swiftly put an end to this Sayuchi menace."
"Damn straight." Shion muttered. He turned around before beginning to walk out of the room. "Matsuki, looks like we're out."
OOC: BTW, Luzifer, what does pseudo mean?
