Kuchiki's Temper  
Setting: 6th Division
Characters: All Ryoka nearby, Division members. Very open thread.
Summary: Byakuya hears a ruckus outside of his walls and investigates--finding two ryoka. Blondies, none the less.

Kuchiki Byakuya was patrolling his district after hearing the sounds of teenagers screaming along his division walls. Just as easily, he scaled these walls in a mere few steps and had cast an eye down towards his visitors. He stepped down from the wall and in a few moments, was staring down Yamanaka Ino and Uzumaki Naruto. Having overheard their conversation prior to even stepping down, he gave them a deadpanned stare and questioned simply...

" Now, why would you need disguises?"

Naruto had found Ino cowering behind a wall. He knelt down and rested his hands on her shoulders, assuring her that she was safe. He told her that it would be a good idea if they got disguises and maybe they could blend in a little more. He had no idea that someone was eavesdropping on their conversation. When he sensed a presence near by, he looked up to see a tall man with long, black hair. When the man asked them the question, he turned to Ino and blinked at her. What should he say? He forced a smile and tilted his head upward to direct it at Byakuya.

"We're going to pull a prank on one of our friends. Shhh, we need to catch 'em by surprise so we're going to put on disguises and they won't know who we are," Naruto had said this all a bit too quickly, "it's fool-proof!"

Ino was about to slap Naruto upside the head in panic, but stopped herself just in time to notice a figure standing behind him. She cleared her throat and nodded frantically at what Naruto had just said, her eyes shifting from the tall man (what the hell was he wearing?) and her blond friend. Oh, God, were they going to die, there and now?

She licked her lips before opening her mouth to speak. "Yes, we're -- uh, gonna do just that," she stammered, catching on. She was about to add, 'what, you gonna try and stop us?', but decided that she wasn't ready to die just yet. Not here, anyway.

"So, kind sir, we'd be more than happy to get out of your way! Your... uh..." her eyes swept over his figure, and decided he looked like a noble, "your highness?"

She just didn't realize how stupid she looked when she said it.

Byakuya cast a glare down towards Naruto upon hearing his answer, his eyes focusing then on Ino as she began to speak. He didn't hear them, he was too busy imagining how he was going to keep his sword put away. Their chittering was almost driving him psychotic. Blondes!

He opened his mouth, disregarding their excuses almost insultingly, " You'll refrain from talking. Your banter is not only clearly a collection of lies, but it is irritating. I'm under orders to house ryoka in my district if I find any, and you are both clearly ryoka. Understand now that you're under arrest by Kuchiki Byakuya, Captain of the Sixth Division--and please, don't try to escape. Under our current conditions, I can be reprimanded for drawing my weapon, Shinobi."

Byakuya turned his back, having evaluated their physical stature enough. He may not have been able to examine Naruto's ability to summon chakra or Ino's Shintenshin, but under these conditions he surmised that their abilities were much lesser than he would need to be concerned about.

"Hey," Ino called out, finally getting to her feet and her arms akimbo. This guy--! Telling them to keep their mouths shut, who did he think he was? Some kind of king? Maybe she shouldn't have called him 'highness'.

The trouble was, Ino still didn't know a thing about this... Soul Society place. The government, the people, what they did (she knew about the cool swords, which Byakuya was wearing at his side), and why the heck she was there.

And ryoka?

"Byakuya-sama," she started, after regaining her lost cool, "can you just pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase explain to me what we did wrong? I don't want to go to jail!"

Naruto scowled as Byakuya started to ramble on. He didn't have to listen to this guy. Who'd he think he was? Oh. Wait. Maybe he was the king of this place? He sure looked like it, him being all well-groomed and all. But still! They weren't even from this place. What kind of authority did this guy have on them? None.

He jumped a little when Ino stood up. He looked up at her, nodding his head furiously.

"Yeah! Just what the hell did we do? We did nothing wrong! We don't have to follow your stupid orders," he shouted after the retreating figure, that was Byakuya's.

There seemed to be no end to this maze of pale buildings and the many people in black yukata. However, none of them attracted his attention in particular.

Sasuke could hear shouts from a certain area. They sounded familiar.

Like a certain yellow-haired moron he had been team mates with. Who he had fought and defeated. Who he had abandoned along with the rest of Konoha to join Orochimaru, and eventually become his vessel. Which had not happened yet.

A short walk in that direction and he could see who he assumed was Ino, one of the girls from Konoha, Naruto, and a person wearing the black yukata he had seen on the other people. He looked slightly different from the rest, however. His black outfit had a white overthing and he was wearing a longer scarf and some type of hair ornament. Was that mean he was a higher-ranked person? Or did it mean nothing?

He ducked into an alley nearby, watching while not trying to be seen. What could he learn?

Byakuya had stopped in his tracks, after counting to himself impatiently. He had given them 10 seconds to follow, without him being impatient, which had failed the moment it had begun.

Turning to look back towards the two blondes, Kuchiki felt a distinct reiatsu which tremored through the buildings in a more subtle way than the other two.

For that moment, he ignored it, casting a glance to the two blondes after having scrunching his expression towards the walls.

" To date, you two have done nothing wrong, except exist in a dimension where you should not. You two will not be harmed if you accompany me to my division headquarters. Merely accompany me, and I will be as hospitable as possible. If not, I will mandate my right to draw a weapon against hostile visitors." Byakuya returned his hand towards his sword, his reiatsu now flaring irritably--almost changing the pressure of the oxygen in the air, if it could be described as just that. The feeling itself could only be described as a change of gravity.

The entire time, Byakuya seemed much more concerned with the hidden ryoka. This one was definitely waiting for either an opening, or for Byakuya to offer him enough time to discern information.

" You may answer 'Yes' to accept my offer of hospitality, or 'No' to be hostile and allow me to use extreme force."

Naruto got up to his feet slowly as he ignored Byakuya's speech. Naruto gripped Ino's forearm as an overwhelming pressure was forced upon them. Naruto had experienced this before. What exactly was it? His knees buckled but he kept himself standing, still holding Ino up by her forearm if she collapsed from the pressure. His head perked up once he heard that last bit of Byakuya's speech.

"No." Naruto was already backing away, dragging Ino along with him. The pressure in the air had made it extremely difficult, however.
irapemindslol on September 10th, 2006 04:41 am (UTC)
It happened all so fast. Ino felt something -- she didn't know what -- holding her down, and it was hard to breathe. Her breathing stopped, and she let out a couple of choked pants as her knees buckled. What the hell? She'd never experienced something like this before. As Naruto replied, Ino's eyes widened. "You idiot," she croaked, digging her nails into him, "he's going to kill us. Just... let's follow him."

The pressure was making her feel sick, and she could feel the bile rising up her throat. She allowed herself to be dragged away, praying that Byakuya would just go and let them be, but she highly doubted it.

Whether or not Kimimaro was bound by his spell (OOC: BTW, this is after Byakuya shot out his Rikujuu Korou) Byakuya noticed that the two blonde ryoka were faltering from his reiatsu. He merely intended to threaten them, assuming that they had been in this kind of prescence before--most people should have been.

Lowering the force of his reiatsu, he merely condensed it, focusing on his position. Kimimaro was ahead of him, the two blondes to his right at the end of the street and a street down in the alley behind him was another ryoka.

" This is irritating."

Uchiha Sasuke. Kimimaro needed to find this individual-- because of that boy, Kimimaro had lost his standing with Orochimaru. Even healthy, he was essentially useless. There was northing more painful than to exist without meaning. It was simple. The littlest Uchiha needed to die. Then, maybe then-- Orochimaru would change his mind.

It was when he'd sensed a familiar chakra in the area, that he stirred from his hiding spot on a high, lone roof. Concealing his own chakra, he padded across rooftops in silence. This blonde was also looking for the very same person. He could prove useful.

Upon arrival, pale green eyes assessed the situation. Two blondes, one familiar and one not. Seemed to be in trouble. This dark haired man was threatening his only way back to Orochimaru, and thus-- Also had to die.

Kimimaro wasted no time with words or warnings, his bones creaking hollowly as they shifted under the force of his will. The tips of his finger bones shifting out of his fingers had once been a painful process, but now as the white particles of bone shot toward the black-haired shinigami, he thought nothing of it.
scatteryourhope on September 9th, 2006 09:34 pm (UTC)
Byakuya had felt the air pressure change in his reiatsu even before Kimimaro fired his bone fingertips towards him. Turning his heel--he disappeared in one simple shyunpo-step, the bone fragments crushing in the wall behind him.

Byakuya stood behind Kimimaro in his one shyunpo step--his sword flashing out from his side and guided towards the teen's left side and kidney, to kill him outright.

" A threatening aura will not escape my field of sense. You have been foolish to attempt to take my life."

[e_____e I wasn't sure if this would work. if not, feel free to yell at me.]
"Fast," Kimimaro noted, sliding barely out of the range of the strike. He bent low and to the side, turning on his toes. Kimimaro was not fast enough, as he turned to face his new opponent, his eyes widened.

Blood. Bright, red blood trickled down his side. It It had been a long time since he'd bled. He cupped his side with his hand, slowing the blood flow as his skin sealed itself shut again.

Re: [e_____e I wasn't sure if this would work. if not, feel free to yell at me.]
As Kimimaro was in the appropriate range, Byakuya held his sword low, pointing a palm towards the teen, his finger sparking with reiatsu. This one would need to be subdued and quickly.

" Your bones trickle with energy. I can't describe it in words what it feels like, but I did manage to see what you fired at me. The tips of your fingers--the bones." Byakuya brought his left hand out in front of himself pointed to Kimimaro, " Truly, your whole body, if capable of that, is dangerous. I advise you do not resist. If you do not, I will not be forced to kill you."

" Even so. Rikujuu Korou." He closed his palm--6 pillars of light exploding from the air, to crush against Kimimaro and subdue him--his advanced kidou formed.

Kimimaro cried out as the kidou surrounded him. This wasn't a technique he'd seen before, and with a master who prided himself in knowing everything, it was a little surprising.

There was a pop, and smoke filled the air. It filled the street, billowing in the wind, and curling at Byakuya's feet. As the smoke cleared-- Kimimaro was gone, and in his place sat a single, long shard of bone. Replacement jutsu.


"You can kill the dead?"

He was high in the air above Byakuya, fingers splayed. A spray of bone somehwat akin to machine gun fire rained down toward the dark-haired man.
scatteryourhope on September 12th, 2006 12:13 am (UTC)

That was all Byakuya could be, seeing someone use a technique to avoid his rikujuu korou. He'd mastered that spell many a day ago, in the days where he tried his best to embarrass the Special Ops division leader, Yoruichi.

This white haired ingrate was beginning to set him off. His attack from nowhere, his ability to avoid Rikujuu Korou and now this ruthless attack from above, none the less being a trick?

Kuchiki was getting angry. As the bullets rained down on him, he narrowed his eyes, unsheathing his sword and holding it in front of his face--his reiatsu now flaring violently again, his usual killing intent turning his aura red.

" Scatter, Senbonzakura."

The blade of his sword seemed to melt away--flower petals raising from it and rising into the air slowly--almost methodically, opposed to the bullets now nearing Byakuya. In the instant he formed it--Kimimaro's machine-gun fire of bone bullets was deflected by a series of the petals, the small torrent of pink blades twisting to approach Kimimaro.

" Truly, you have surprised me--however, I will be more surprised if you look the same after this."

*so lazy* :(
Naruto did want to stay and watch the fight but this was his chance. If they didn't run away now, then they would never get away. He pulled Ino up and wrapped his arm around her waist, getting a good grip.

He needed to say one thing before he ran off with Ino (a bit slowly since the pressure had increased the gravity, thus making even walking difficult for Naruto).

"See ya' later, jackass!"

He couldn't help it.

Sasuke could assume the guy fighting the black-haired uniform-wairing man was from his world. Substition jutsu was one of the first jutsu taught to ninja and was easily recognizable. But... Sasuke couldn't quite recognize the other jutsu he was using. Manipulating bones... it sounded slightly familiar, but not enough that he could remember where he had heard of it.

The black-haired man had an interesting way of fighting, too, and a strange force came from his body that made it difficult to to move a limb for Sasuke. He edged out from the alley he had went into to get a better view of the blade that the black-haired man had just brought out, slightly surprised when it turned into sakura petal-colored shimmers in the air, heading towards the ninja. He tried to remain inconspicuous as he watched.
scatteryourhope on September 12th, 2006 05:57 am (UTC)
Byakuya noticed Naruto dragging Ino aside, holding his sword handle with his right hand. Tilting the sword down, and bringing attention to Naruto, Byakuya formed the same kidou as before.

" Rikujuu Korou!" Byakuya murmured, the binding kidou flying down towards Naruto from thing air, formulated by 6 bits of light. This was proving irritating, as he had to deal with 3 visible fighters and a fourth hidden one. The hidden one, more than likely, was only observing. If they had been antsy to defend their friends, then they would have attacked much sooner.

In the meantime, Byakuya noted the intense aura he was throwing towards the bone-user--too little restraint was in it. So, before Senbonzakura would have done more than dissipate his attack, he stopped it from spearheading Kimimaro and simply had it surround him.

" Restrain yourself, Ryoka. If you haven't heard me before, I am not under orders to kill you. Wisely, keep your attacks to yourself and follow me willingly. I can sense every bit of energy in your frame and I can begin to understand your method of attacking. If you move further to assault myself or anyone else, I will simply annihilate you."

Kimimaro dropped his arm as he watched the wave of pink petals sway toward him. Only in the fact that they had blocked his attack did he have any idea that in them, lay danger.

As the petals obscurred his view of the other Ninja who had just now come into view, he faultered for a moment. That chakra was farmiliar. The taint of Orochimaru, it was like poison, and all too recognizable. Sasuke. This was the first time Kimimaro had actually seen him face to face.

Another crack of bone, a pop, and the invisible armour shifted underneath his skin-- a spike of bone extending from his hand.

He ran into the cloud of petals as if they were just that. Petals. One dark-haired man at a time, and the one he didn't know of was getting in the way.
scatteryourhope on September 13th, 2006 04:35 am (UTC)
Byakuya narrowed his eyes to look carefully at Kimimaro. He felt an aura shift below the teen's skin, and he clenched his fist--the petals of senbonzakura descending upon him.

Byakuya hadn't an idea the capabilities Kimimaro had, only sure that he wasn't fast enough to attack him in time, even if he survived his shikai.
