An arid desert, without the heat baring down on those within or the dryness in the air. No wind seemed to flow, no grain of sand fell out of place, rocks remained untouched for decades. A sun loomed in the sky but never moved from one spot, nor did it shine a light that blinded the eyes that stared at it; an endless wasteland as far as the eye could see, with no life, and no death, and no time. A perfect place to hone one’s skills, or reflect on the past, or come to terms with one’s self. To contain a monster greater than one’s self, to practice arts of catastrophic proportions without risk of collateral damage…
…or to subdue a demon awakening from its slumber.
A small crack appeared over the dead ground of this place, spreading horizontally before tearing open into a large, gaping hole into the black darkness of the void beyond. Out from this great maw stepped two figures, a Shinigami with an eyepatch, and a Visored with a sleeveless Chinese-styled top, white bandages wrapping his entire left arm and hand, slim black pants, and… no socks or shoes.
“Shit, I left my shoes back there...”
He turned back towards the Garganta, as if he even had the time to go back and find and retrieve them, but it snapped shut behind them.
“…I liked those sandals.”
Not the pressing matter at hand. The Visored turned back to the Shinigami, and as he did so, he could feel the Hollow Reiatsu lurking in her more clearly now that they were away from Hueco Mundo. Who knew how long it would be before she would turn.
“I’m sure you have questions. Feel free to ask anything you need to, and I’ll answer as best as I can.” Hidane stretched, walking over to a nearby boulder, and sitting on it, legs crossed, his Zanpakuto sheathed and resting across his lap. “Just know that we may well be short on time; you could go under again in a month, a week, a day… a few minutes? There’s no telling when it will happen, though there are ways to induce it sooner, some easier than others.” He closed his right eye, leaving the left eye open, watching the Shinigami closely. She didn’t seem very powerful, but he also knew nothing about her. “But let’s start easy. What’s your name?”
