Rebirth

Final Peace

Most of the battles have ceased at this point as all attention is shifted towards the battle going on between Aizen and the newly allied Quincy Emperor and Soul Reaper Head Captain. Whether they were Arrancars, Soul Reapers, or Quincy’s, all watched the spectacle of this battle. They could tell that all three men were tired from the battle, and ready to end it.

“So this is the Vollständig of the Quincy Emperor? I’m impressed. Not only do you have one, but it appears different from the others I’ve heard about, and to have one at such a young age is phenomenal. You are truly interesting Uryu Ishida.” Aizen said as he looked at the Emperor.

Uryu merely looked at Aizen with a deadly glare.

Shunsui looked at the magnificent sight with a smile, unsure of what the Quincy Emperor had in mind.

Uryu formed a long white bow with a ring around were he grips it and releases the arrow. Uryu quickly uses Hirenkyaku and appears behind Aizen and unleashes a Licht Regen. Aizen Flash Steps out of the way and appears behind the Emperor. Uryu quickly spins which cause his wings to cut through Aizen’s abdomen. Shunsui takes advantage of this and swings at Aizen with his dual swords, but he just barely Flash Steps out of the way.

“Your wings…they’re quite lethal, I didn’t expect that, very good.” Aizen said as he placed a hand on his wound. “You’ve left me no choice then.”

Suddenly, both Uryu and Shunsui saw the sky appears to darken as multiple boxes of black energy appear around them and encase them, each of them topped off with cross-shaped spears, they hear Aizen speaking an incantation.

"Seeping crest of turbidity. Arrogant vessel of lunacy! Boil forth and deny! Grow numb and flicker! Disrupt sleep! Crawling queen of iron! Eternally self-destructing doll of mud! Unite! Repulse! Fill with soil and know your own powerlessness!"

Uryu quickly wraps his wings around himself for protection as multiple spears close in on the two men head-to-toe. As the box faded away, Uryu rushed to the mortally wounded Shunsui, and helped him to stand. As Shunsui stood, he noticed the very frustrated Sōsuke Aizen that now stood before him.

“It’s over Aizen, you should finish your sentence and be done with it. This fight has gone on too long and I’m getting tired of playing games with you.” Uryu said as he looked his opponent in the eye.

“How did you escape my Hadō #90 Kurohitsugi with absolutely no injury!? Such feats are not possible!” He shouts in anger.

“I am the Emperor of the Wandenreich; it would be an embarrassment if I didn’t. Aizen, now I’ll give you one last chance to surrender to us. Admit your defeat!” Uryu replied with a sinister grin.

Aizen finally regains composure. “Why don’t we give it one last final blow? That will make things much easier. We’ll put every last ounce of energy and strength in this final move.”

“Alright Aizen.” Uryu says as he readies his bow.

Aizen prepared to focus and fire his spiritual pressure at the Quincy. Moments later, the two began to charge at each other, Uryu released his barrage of arrows and Aizen shot out his spiritual pressure, when the two forces collided, it caused a massive explosion of light. Uryu couldn’t see past the light, but as it died down, he saw a blooded and battered Aizen standing before him.

“You’ve lost Aizen; I’ll let the Soul Reapers deal with you. I have enough to worry about.” Uryu said as he turned and walked away as Shunsui’s men surrounded Aizen.

Shunsui called out to him. “Your Majesty!”

Uryu stopped as the Head Captain walked up to him.

“That was quite an impressive display there. I’m surprised. Someone as young as you able to defeat Aizen, I understand the powers an Emperor has but, still, it’s phenomenal that you’ve learned to use them with such skill at your age.”

Uryu smiled. “Thank you for the compliment Head Captain, and may I say that we wouldn’t be here celebrating this victory without your help. I couldn’t have beaten Aizen without your help. Let’s remember this battle as a day when our two people became closer allies, and better friends.”

Shunsui smiled back. “You’re too kind Emperor Ishida! I couldn’t agree with you more! Let’s celebrate with Sake!”

Uryu chuckle. “No thank you Head Captain. I’m still classified as a minor. But I have a better idea, why don’t we celebrate with a feast to commemorate our victory?”

Shunsui scratched his chin. “Hmm. I suppose that’s a good idea. Who shall host?”

“We’re already in the Soul Society, so you shall host.” Uryu replied with a sly smile.

Shunsui sighed. “Alright, makes sense. I’ll tell the cooks to start cooking.” Shunsui said as he walked off. “And don’t be late when you hear the dinner bell either!”

Äs Nödt leaned against the wall and closed his eyes, Bazz B did the same, sensing the fight between Uryu, Shunsui and Aizen was over. Kirge, Candice, Renji, and Rukia sensed it as well and sighed in relief.

“Looks like our Emperor truly is worthy of the throne.” Bazz B remarked. “You were right to choose him. I think we can rest easy now.”

“Indeed. We can truly start to rebuild. And soon we can reveal our existence to the Quincy in the World of the Living.” Äs said.

Bazz B grinned. “Yeah… hell, maybe the Emperor will marry you to that Soul Reaper, like when kings married their daughters and sons to prevent wars! I remember those days.”

Äs gave him a deadpan stare before sighing. “I don’t think it will happen like that. But you actually have a point, a marriage like that would improve our relation with the Soul Reapers.”

Byakuya, Suì-Fēng, and BG9 soon approached the group.

Bazz B grinned. “Hey Grandmaster, this is your chance to tell your girlfriends brother about that marriage idea!”

Byakuya immediately turned his attention to Bazz B. “What marriage?”

Äs gave Bazz B an ‘I’m going to kill you’ look before jumping into the lion’s den.

“First off, we haven’t even discussed the thought of marriage… yet. Second, Byakuya” Rukia came to Äs Nödt’s side and grabbed his hand as they gazed into each other’s eyes. “that does mean I’m in love your sister…do you have a problem with that?”

Byakuya’s face was beat red with anger. All the old prejudices came to the surface, but Renji spoke up in an attempt to calm his Captain down.

“Captain I know this seems bad but in time this can…” Byakuya cut him off.

“I understand.” He said as he took a deep breath as he turned to his sister. “Am I to assume you feel the same way?” He asks her.

Rukia blushes as she simply nods her head at her brother and Byakuya can see the truth of it in her eyes.

“As much as I may oppose a relationship like this, I will not forbid it. The Quincy have proven themselves and the Head Captain seems to think we can work with them. But I want you to promise me something Äs Nödt. You must protect Rukia with your life.”

Äs Nödt smiles beneath his mask. “That is a promise I intend to keep, Byakuya Kuchiki.”

Just as Äs Nödt makes that promise, a Hell Butterfly landed on the fingers of every Captain present in their group.

“A Captains meeting.” Byakuya said. “It’s about today’s events.” His gaze passes over everyone present and then comes to rest on the two love birds. “I will see you all at the feast.”

Byakuya walked off without another word.

Rukia looked at her brother as he walked away. A tear fell down her chin, “Thank you brother…” She said silently to herself as her hand gripped Äs Nödt’s even tighter, smiling through her tears when he looked down at her tenderly. She never wanted to let go of him…..
