Katrina shook her head, "I don't think so, but we're here. Let's go in."
Kuchiki nodded then announced themselves before entering.
Inside the huge room sat Captain Commander Yamamoto, his Assistant Captain, Chojiro Sasakibe, standing next to him. On Yamamoto's other side stood Captain Ukitake.
"13th Company Fifth Seat, Katrina Lau-san" Yamamoto said, his voice booming throughout the room. "I would like to formerly congratulate you on graduating from the Shino Academy, and in only one year. I usually congratulate all the new graduates at the ceremony, but this year I could not do so." He nodded slightly toward his left arm, most of which was lost during the battle.
Katrina could feel her face flush with embarrassment. This was unexpected. "Th-thank you, Captain Commander."
"I know that you have questions," Yamamoto co

"I'm glad Hisagi is doing better," Kuchiki said.
"Yeah," Katrina replied, almost inaudible against the sound of the Senkaimon gates.
Kuchiki put a reassuring hand on Katrina's shoulder. "This stuff happens when we are learning our Zanpakuto's powers. I can't even begin to tell you what happened when I first started using Sode no Shirayuki."
Katrina smiled. She had never been around such supporting people before. When she was the Chosen One in the Earth Realm, it was more like she was either over protected or expected to already know what to do. This was a welcome change and one she fully appreciated.
"Okay Katrina, the gates are opened. Let's go."
With that said, they followed their Hell Butterflies into the Senkaimon.

"Not right now, Matsumoto," Hisagi replied. "Kira and I have to go somewhere."
"Awww, you guys are party poopers," Matsumoto pouted, before downing a gulp of sake. "It's that 13th Company..uh Sixth Seat?"
"Fifth Seat," Kira replied. "Katrina Lau."
"Hoo... what a funny sounding name," Matsumoto slurred.
Hisagi sighed. "We'll join up with you later, Matsumoto, okay?"

"You'll be fine, Katrina," Ukitake reassured. "You went up against uneven battles."
"I can understand the one against Assistant Captain Abarai, but not the three mod souls."
"You're not giving up are you Katrina?" Kuchiki asked.
"There's a part of me that wants to. It's that part of me from my previous life," Katrina answered. "But I really want to get to the bottom of everything that has been happening. I need

Her hair, however, had reverted back to its usual shoulder length moppiness, prompting everyone to surmise that the length was part of her Bankai, initiated by the skewed time in the Dangai.
"Why are you being my nursemaid?" Katrina asked, irritatedly. "Don't you have work that you're supposed to be doing, Assistant Captain Kira?"
"Well, you still can't see and you're already prone to falling," Kira replied nervously. "Ukitake has captainly things to do, Rukia left to patrol in the Human World and Kiyone and Sentaro are covering for Rukia."
Katrina lifted up part of her blindfold before wincing in pain, replacing the blindfold quickly. "Seriously, you should go back to your company before you get in trouble with your Captain."
"Captain Ohtoribashi is fine with me being over here," Kira replied.

With a smile, Helen started to walk away from Blaze and into the darkness of the cave’s tunnels. Lucia who was about to turn with his brother to leave Blaze and Gemma alone quickly shot a glance over to Gemma’s direction.Chapter 12: Nothing halts destruction3 years ago in Settings More Like This
“I’ll be on my edge at all times, if that thing comes out then let me deal with it. I’ve had the experience” Lucia informed Gemma and walked to his brother just further into the cave.
“What comes? Is there another one of you… are you guys getting more people on your side?” Blaze asked in a concerned tone even though he tried to hide it. Gemma laughed and placed a hand on Blaze’s shoulder.

The alarms blared in 12th Company's Department of Research and Development. Rin had quickly pinpointed the anomalous activity to the area of the Dangai that Katrina disappeared into.
Akon looked over Rin's shoulder to verify the readings. "Let all the captains know immediately, especially Captain Ukitake."

The sound of running filled the Dangai as members of several divisions accompanied 13th Company in the event it was not their missing comrade.
Assistant Captains Kuchiki, Kira and Hisagi made it to the area first, followed by Captains Ukitake, Hirako, Kyoraku, and Assistant Captain Kotetsu. 11th Company's Madarame and Ayasegawa held the rear, mostly because they were bored and wanted to join in.
At first they did not feel the vibrations, but soon everyone was able to hear and feel the sounds of explosions.

"How is she, Retsu?" Ukitake asked. The concern was etched on his face.
"Lau-san should make a full recovery by tomorrow," Unohana replied. "Although I feel that her mental shock may take a lot longer to heal. This is not something medicine can help with. She will need the support of your people."
Ukitake nodded. "I don't think she should know the truth of what happened in the tournament yet."
"No, and I have already told that to her. She needs to understand that we are not treating her like how she was treated in the Earth Realm." Unohana sighed. "She's a smart girl, Jushiro. She understands, but the frustrations she apparently kept inside may have manifested a Zanpakuto she may not be able to fully control."
Ukitake's eyes widened.
"That's what I got from my brief conversation with her. And how are you doing?"

"We're serious, Katrina," Hisagi stated. "Had Izuru and I not been called to defend the pillars we would've told you this sooner: You're going to have to confront your Zanpakuto Spirit. By avoiding it, you're not only endangering yourself, but those in your company and those in the other companies."
"Hisagi-san I don't even know how to," Katrina replied. "How do you face something that is not tangible and sounds like hundreds?"
"You're out of the Academy now, Katrina. You don't have to be so formal with us anymore," Hisagi said, smiling slightly.
She nodded her understanding. "Have either of you ever felt trapped while in Jinzen?"
"Not really," Kira replied.
"No," Hisagi answered.
"Ever since seeing Captain Kuchiki and remembering the last moment of my life, it feels like it to me. Only it's getting worse."
Hisagi thought for a moment. "There's something

"Don't you even think of killing it," Kurotuchi said, as he joined Soi Fon in the pursuit.
"Mayuri, this is not something for you to experiment with," she replied, as she continued on.
"What?" he said, aghast. "While yes, I would love to do experiments on Lau's Zanpakuto Spirit, I'm merely curious to see if Konjiki Ashisogi Jizo is stronger than this."
"I'm sure," Soi Fon replied sarcastically, before speeding up.

"The next step to Katrina's training is making sure she has a good grasp on her Bankai."
"Yeah, yeah," he sighed. "As the only non-captain to achieve Bankai...but why are those two here?" pointing at Hisagi and Kira.
"We wanted to see her Bankai, okay?" Kira replied.
"I'm sure that's the only thing you wanted to see," Abarai smirked.
"What the heck was that supposed to mean?" Kira exclaimed.
Hisagi turned to look at both of them and sighed.
Katrina remained oblivious to the bickering behind her. She didn't think she was fully recovered from the other day, but understood Yoruichi's explanation that you don't get to rest on the battlefield.
"Alright," Yoruichi said after they arrived in the secret training area. "Katrina I want you to materialize Miasma."

"Oh?" Urahara replied jovially. "And is this Katrina-chan?" He got up, took off his hat and bowed toward Katrina.
"Um, yes," Katrina flustered.
"So, what can a humble candy store owner do for you two young ladies?"
"We need to use your training area," Kuchiki stated. "Katrina needs to train and there is no other safe place for that."
"Err, hasn't Yoruichi shown you the hidden area in Soul Society?"
"Yes," Kuchiki explained. "But since we're here in the Human World..."
"Ah, hahaha!" Urahara laughed. "I see where your logic is, Rukia-chan! Take a side project while doing patrol in the Human World."
Kuchiki nodded. "We also haven't determined what type of powers her Zanpakuto wields."
Urahara turned serious. "Yoruichi did tell me about this."

"So some of the Captains and Assistant Captains went off to the Human World?" Katrina asked Ukitake.
He nodded. "Rukia too. The situation with the Fulbringers has reached its high point. Given what we remember of Ginjo, he'll steal whatever powers Kurosaki-kun had gained."
"Is he that much of a threat?"
"He was the first Substitute Shinigami, although how he came to acquire his Shinigami powers was suspect. The Substitute Shinigami badge that I created was designed to help us monitor him. Unfortunately he found out, resigned his position and we lost track of him since. Until now."
"Captain," Katrina interrupted. "If you know what he plans on doing with Kurosaki's powers, why haven't anyone stopped him by now?"
"It's not that simple, Katrina," Ukitake replied. "Like the Bounts before him, he's gathered others like himself. Plus there are some in the 13 Court Guard Companies who are not sure
