With the Captains suffering casualties and heavy injuries on their side, all hope seemed to be lost... until Shinji Hirako appeared, along with the rest of the former Shinigami. Though the aid of the Vizards certainly helped to draw the battle in their favor, it seemed Aizen's power alone proved too much for them.
Shunsui Kyoraku was bored. And he had too much paperwork for one man to handle. He sighed, and looked around, wonder where his lieutenant was...
"Nanao-chan? Nanaoooo-chan! Jesus, where was that woman? He sighed again, and took another look at the mountain of paperwork before him. The man in the pink coat smiled. He had a lieutenant for this shit, he could just dump it on her... Later, and he'd do it nicely, maybe buy her something first. He sighed, and simply went into one of his draws, and pulled out a bottle of sake. Ah, beautiful sake.
Pouring some into a cup, he tipped back his head and drunk. He then looked around the room. Nobody there. Great, sake was no good without friends...
Faster and faster, Rin walked in a racing like pace. She grined her teeth together as she realized that she was lost again. She then took in a deep breath with her hands balled up in fists flying in the air, "Urgh! What an idiot I am! I should never listen to you!" she said outloud complaining to herself.
Then she sighed and her arms dropped. She was stumped on what to do or where to go, when all of the sudden, a faint aroma filled the air. Rin held her head higher as she sniffed out something that smelled like sake. There was a troublemaking look in her eyes as she thought about drinking some sake herself.
Rin kept walking until the aroma got stronger, her appetite started increasing as she thirsted for some sake. She made a turn, and there it was. A man in pink that was infront of a stack of papers, and along side him was the sake. Rin's face lit up as she saw the sake and automatically ran up. "Hi there!" she said excitedly, "mind sharing some of that sake?" she asked getting right to the point.
The man looked up, drunkenly, and grinned, a slight reddish tinge to his cheeks.
"Speak o'the devil... I got a drinkin' buddy." He stood up, stumbled slightly, and walked over to the girl, shaking her hand. At last, somebody to drink with... Good. He then turned to his desk, and picked up the sake bottle, pouring a cup for the giefore handing it to her.
"Here ya go, drink up..." The man said, slurring his words slightly.
Rin gladly took the Sake in her hands. She stared down at it as it ripled around in her cup. Everything about that one cup spelled out trouble, and knowing Rin she would jump right in it. She took the cup up to her mouth, and down it went. The cup was empty and Rin's face started to get a little red on the cheeks. She giggled a little and lifted the cup in the air. "Thank you!" she said outloud almost shouting out. She already started getting a little, and it was probably because she's only dranked a few times.
She smiled and looked at the man in pink, "Sorry, I forgot to introduce myself before taking this. But thank you, and I'm Rin, Rin Hinote third seat of squad...uh...ummm...." Rin trailed off already starting to forget things. "Well...oh well, anyways, that sake's delicious. Can I have some more please?" she asked happily holding her cup out for more. Obviously turning drunk already.
Shunsui nodded, before pouring out another cup for the girl. He was happy to have a drinking buddy, and he would surely find out her name later... He grinned, laughed and said,
"Shunsui. Shunsui Kyoraku, Captain of... uh, Squad 8. Yeah, Squad 8!" He grinned again, face red-tinged. It was good having somebody to drink with. He moved around his room, and sat down on a seat, putting the sake bottle on the table next to him, and motioning the girl to sit.
"Sit... It's the only way that... that yer gonna get anymore sake off me.. Eheheh..." He pured himsefl another cup and drained it in a matter of seconds, the alcohol burning his throat.
Rin watched as the sake poured into her cup making little ripples. She smiled drowzily at it, and as the ripples stopped she drank up. After the sake disappeared from the cup again, she motioned for more. She sat down with the man which appearently was a captain and lifted her cup next to him. "More please!" she said as she started getting gittery and hyped up.
As she waited for her next cup her mind started to get a little mushy. Her face was really starting to redden from the alcohol intake, and soon she probably would start to really forget things. "Soo.." she started saying, "you're a captain eh? That. Must. Be fun" she said starting to get a little slur. "Eck" she said after talking and started to move her tongue around like she had something stuck there stopping her from talking straight.
She then shook her head to clear things up and looked at the captain embarassingly. "SORry bout DAT, kinda loosin control of my language." she told him starting to loose control of her voice volume and slurring some more. She took the cup back before she got anything and started to drink nothing. Then realizing that nothing was in the cup, she took it away from her face and put it upside down looking for something to fall out. Rin started swaying from side to side a little then after comming to a clear relization of no sake she placed it upright in her hand and held it out for more.
Shunsui laughed loudly when he realised that Rin was trying to drink nothing, and tried to pour her another cupful, pouring some on the ground. He then poured some more for himself, and drank it back. He grinned, and fell of his chair, obviously drunk and oblivious to the world. He lay there, laughing loudly, and staring at the ground he was laying on, before slowly standing up again, and looking at the woman.
"N.. n... NO! Matter, I'm SURE That WE wiLL be FinE?" He was losing control of his voice now, and sat back up on the chair, trying to pour himself another cup. And he sat there for twenty seconds, the bottle still poised, and still peering at the cup, before he realised that the bottle was empty.
Rin listened to the captain’s remark on the empty bottle. It had taken Rin a few seconds to realize things, while she made all sorts of thinking faces. She quickly got up from where she sat and automatically lost control and started falling. Her hand flew over trying to catch something but missed from the double vision as she landed on a stack of papers. The papers flew in the air and scattered all over the floor. Rin swayed from left to right as she tried to push herself off the ground.
Rin looked up and squinted; she looked around to her surroundings and then dropped. She lay there on her belly side moaning, “Why’s the ground Spitting” she slurred, “I a mean Spilling? Er SPINNING” she forced out. Some more moaning came in to play as she thought about the empty bottle, “I want more sake..” she mumbled. She started mumbling some more stuff that no one understand and started the whole getting up thing again.
Her hand flew up as she reached for a table, grabbed onto it and steadily pulled herself up. She pouted as she kept thinking of the empty bottle. Now standing straight and keeping herself from falling again, Rin looks at the captain. “More ShAke!” she blurted out, and took in deep breaths as if she were exhausted. “I want more sake…” she started complaining. She sighed and looked at the captain in an angry way. The reddish tinge in her face seemed to get redder as the time past, and all of the sudden Rin went for the captain. “C’mon captain! Where’s the sake? Nee-More-Sake!” she yelled out, and as she headed for the captain her legs stumbled and she landed face flat on the floor again. She grunted in frustration with her arms spread forward.
The Shinigami Captain stood up on weak legs, and began to look around for more sake. Stumbling as he went, he remembered that he had a secret stash somewhere - he just couldn't remember where...
"H-Help me find ma shtash of ShaKE. I know dat it'sh around here shomWHere..." His vision was blurred, and he managed to trip over the girl's legs and hit the ground. Hard. He pulled himself up, rubbing his head in pain, and began to move forward, too fsat for his body and fell over again. But luck was with him this time, and he had found the Sake!
"Found... IT!" He reached forward, and managed to pull a bottle out, holding it in the air triumphantly.
Rin smiled widely and started getting up. She wobbled from side to side in search for her cup. “WHer’s me cup?” she said out loud. The cup sat on where Rin had been sitting, papers still all over the floor, while the captain was laying somewhere probably already drinking the sake. She quickly scooped up the cup and held onto the seat to keep her from falling.
She started walking towards where she thought the captain had gone, holding her cup forward ready for some sake to get poured. “Ay?! El capitan, WHerdya go? I caint see ya” she said slurring and walking around like a zombie.
“Wow…don’t you look pathetic” a voice said to Rin.
Rin raised her other hand in a fist and started shaking it, “WHa Did you say?!” she yelled out and started walking forward in a faster pace. She thought she saw a reddish shadow up ahead and thought that that’s where the voice came from.
Not noticing the table up ahead, she quickly runs into it getting the air knocked out of her. She flips over the desk and lands on the floor, cup at hand. A shrill of laughter filled Rin’s mind as she realized that it was her zanpakuto spirit making fun of. Rin grunted and looked to her side, the captain was there and the stash of sake close by.
