Inuzuri district, South Rukongai, Soul society.
Silence, it gripped the air like an iron chain. Casting a ominous feeling of uneasiness across the darkened city streets. Though the streets of the district usually stood empty after the sun's retreat, it was arrival of a duo of shrouded individuals that drove what few nocturnal residents the district bore to quickly utter hushed whispers and retreat. Thus it was only these two, whose faces were but shadows beneath the hoods of their darkly colored disguises, who remained active within the night. While the taller of the two remained quiet, leisurely setting his companion's pace from out front as they maneuvered down a series of alleys and streets. It was his companion, a boyishly short male whose voice bore the immaturity of adolescents, rambled frantically at his comrade without relief.
"I mean it Kazuya, they'll gut us like pigs. Y-you just killed Irushi. I mean, i know he deserved it, but you really think anyone is gonna believe all that stuff? How do we even know he wasn't lying? What if they already knew? Then what? What are we even doing here anyways? Um..Kazuuyaaa. Hellloo? You can hear me right? Where are we..."
"Toega." His voice was near melodic, holding both a reassuring and commanding tone over the moderately deep pitch of an adult male's voice. At hearing his name, the shorter male's rhetoric abruptly stopped. As two more similarly dressed individuals descended from nearby roof's as to casually file in behind the duo, Toega at last begun to understand, thus remained hushed. He then tensed slightly as one of the two begun to speak.
"Forgive me Captain, but we shouldn't linger. We should just head for the human world now. At least until things cool down." Her voice was soft and loving.
"No. If we leave without it, we would have to forcefully move to acquire it post-return. Besides, should they realize what this is about..." The entire group nodded simultaneously in under standing. Kazuya then turned as to face the lot. Halting his advance just as he passed through a ray of moonlight, which given his new direction, now illuminated his face directly. "I'd see them all dead first." As he uttered these last words his face sharply twisted. Taking on a look of both anger and pain.
