It was a bright summer morning when he gave me the news. He had passed his exams and was going to be a soul reaper. He had gotten permission for me to come into the Seireitei as well and live with him in an apartment that he was renting out.

"I'm going to be a seated officer," He had said, "I can keep you safe now in the Seireitei as opposed to the Rukongai."

I remembered that I smiled. I was so happy to be out of the Rukongai that I made a bit of a fool of myself. People only laughed at what I did.

A few years after we moved in he became a Lieutenant. I was so proud of my brother.

I remember that I wanted to be just like him. That was why I entered the academy, so I could be.

He always helped me and gave me other ways to look at things so that I could understand them better. He helped me graduate and become a soul reaper.

The day I got my new uniform he came to pick me up and show off his new uniform.

"Wow Shinji! You're a Captain now!"

He nodded at me and said, "Yep. They'll all be callin' me Captain Hirako now. Have you gotten your posting yet?"

I shook my head and told him that we would be getting the postings tomorrow.

He just grinned and said that it was alright; we'd celebrate tonight, then he would introduce me to my Captain himself.
