(Shûhei Hisagi/OC, Shunsui Kyôraku/Nanao Ise) It's time for an exam for the newest members of the Gotei 13. But the new members all have something interesting. The hardest part, weeding out the wannabes, but one of the newbies has a secret, she can already perform bankai, the final release of her zanpakutô. But her power is off-set by her personality, one which shows the difference between her and her zanpakutô. Her greatest secret, however, lies deep inside her memory and could destroy more than just her ego, and it's about to destroy the Soul Society. Aizen didn't tell them his greatest weapon... was her.
Hisagi Shûhei stood side-by-side with Tôsen Kaname, Hitsugaya Tôshirô, Zaraki Kenpachi, Soifon, Ukitake Jûshirô, and Kurotsuchi Mayuri watching the new recruits as they all stood, chattered, paced, or some other event. They were all nervous, and there were some returning students who were hoping for a chance in the Gotei 13.
Hisagi noticed a girl standing in the corner. Her hair was black with navy blue highlights. She had her hands clasped behind her and her Shinigami uniform was neatly pressed and very crisp. Her zanpakutô was resting beside her. It was almost as tall as her and wasn't curved at all. She was pale, like most Shinigami students. She kept her head down and she seemed to be praying for a good grade this time around. When the examiner came in, she grabbed her zanpakutô and strapped it across her hips so the blade rested against her knees and the tip of the scabbard barely raised itself off the ground and the hilt was closer to her elbow, which made them wonder what it was she was doing.
The examiner explained the first set of rules and how the first round was going to be judge and so on. The captains in the hidden room watched as she stood closest to the window and farthest from the front. She gently rocked back onto her heels and then forward onto her toes. She finally came to a halt when she turned and looked at the one-way mirror. She smiled a thousand watt smile and they saw her black, reflective shades and she turned and filed out with the female students. The boys were all set up in pairs, facing opponents. The girls came last.
---Shinigami Training Room---
The girls' turn came and she was one of the first to choose a slip of paper with a number. She came over to the one-way mirror again, where her zanpakutô was resting, and smiled.
"69!" she called from the window. She waved her paper over her head. She took a string from around her neck and held it in her teeth as she braided her long hair, revealing it's length to be down to her hips and then up to her elbows. She took her shades off and tied them to her zanpakutô's strings on the scabbard.
A girl with white hair streaked with red also had 69. She was a strong looking girl with a muscular build, and she let it show, with her sleeves rolled up. Her zanpakutô was desperately small compared to her and she was up against a girl who hid behind her uniform and she had a long sword that was resting against the wall behind her. They were the first to begin.
The examiner asked for their names. The girl turned her attention to the examiner, who was now with her back to the one-way mirror. Her eyes were both blue and very familiar...
She bowed lightly "Akajihaku."
The other girl smirked. "Tohru."
"Akajihaku versus Tohru! First round! Begin!"
