A/N: For those that didn't know, I haven't uploaded these days due to certain issues arising in my family living pretty far away.
This is an update, it turns out a family member has passed away and we already held their funeral a day ago. For now, updates might be a bit slow, depending on the movements of my dad, since this family member was from his side of the family.
I hope you sinners understand why updates will come slow.
Anyways, enjoy this chapter.
Looking at the quiet Capital City of the United Kingdom, Sora felt the urge to jump down and go to the nearest pub. He shook his head to rid himself of the urge and decided to just walk around a bit before going to visit the Western Branch.
Sora jumped down and walked around in the dark night, he walked through parks and passed by many cars before the first rays of sun flashed through the streets. Looking at that light slowly pushing back the darkness, Sora smiled.
'Seems like I can now go back into my Realm.'
Disappearing from where he was, Sora reappeared inside the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
Appearing inside the space, Sora looked at the surroundings in amazement. He knew that the Realm could expand, but to expand this much!?
The space seemed to expand by almost three to four times! Even the pond had expanded and grown more deep. With raised eyebrows, Sora walked over to the stone monument and read what the stone said.
Seeing the Second Layer unlocked, Sora smiled triumphantly as he looked at the gains.
[For the Second Layer, there would be an agility-enhancing fruit tree, which will bear 10 fruits every 100 years. Each of the fruits would be able to increase one's original speed by 50%, and was able to be used as an alchemy ingredient. A person would only be able to enjoy the permanent increase in speed and agility of consumption of two fruits. However, if you eat an additional one after the consumption of two, then your speed will increase by another 50% for a time period of 15 minutes.]
Looking at the tree next to the Strength Enhancing Fruit Tree, Sora was surprised that it looked exactly like the Energy Enhancing Tree. The only difference that was evident, was that the Agility Enhancing Fruits of the tree were green instead of red. (A/N: I changed the name of the energy enhancing fruit tree to the strength enhancing fruit tree. 'cause I forgot that the tree had its name changed when the actual energy enhancing fruit tree.)
He was surprised that the glossy green fruit can permanently raise his speed by a hundred percent after consuming two of the fruits. However, Sora could only sigh in defeat as he knew that he couldn't eat the fruits at all until he gets his real body back. Eating it now would give him no benefit at all and will be a waste of fruit.
"If my speed doubles, then I will be able to launch hits at a quicker speed and approach the enemies faster," smiled Sora. He combed his hair back with his hand and turned back to look at the stone monument.
[Third Layer Unlocked!]
[Defense Enhancing Fruit Tree: Produces 10 Defense Enhancing Fruit every 100 years. Each fruit, upon consumption will increase one's defense by 500 jin. Maximum consumption of 2 fruits per person, eating any more will grant no benefit. Can be used as an alchemy ingredient.]
[5,000 Year Old Golden Medicinal Turtle: Blood used for alchemy, replacing the ingredient required from any normal beasts.]
[Drunken Fragrance Fruit: Produces 100 Drunken Fragrance Fruits every 10 years. Can be used for cooking. One fruit is sufficient for creating condiments.]
[The sovereign can spend 2 more hours in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. Four hours inside the Realm.] (A/N: The original author of the AST never told us when the realm went to 4 hours, so I guessed that it must have been in the third layer.)
The Defense Enhancing Fruit Tree was a fruit in purple color, the tree looked the same as the Strength Enhancing Fruit Tree and the Agility Enhancing Fruit Tree.
Sora looked surprised as he went back to the stone monument and read the second reward for the Third Layer. The Golden Medicinal Turtle.
With a smile, Sora looked around the realm for the turtle. He looked around and found no turtle in sight before realizing that it might be in the pond.
Walking over to the pond, Sora looked at the bottom of the pond and found a golden turtle at the bottom. Its size was equal to that of a grown man's head and its golden color gleamed under the crystal clear water.
"Wow, that's a nice golden color," admired Sora. He looked at the golden turtle and remembered the effects of its blood. 'used for alchemy and is a replacement for any blood required from normal beasts... alchemy... sounds interesting.'
Moving his gaze from the turtle, Sora looked at a meter tall tree with 100 Drunken Fragrance Fruits hanging from its branches. Each fruit was the size of a walnut and violet in color, it emitted a drowning fragrance which made Sora hungry.
"Maybe I should learn how to cook food," chuckled Sora.
Quickly plucking all the Drunken Fragrance Fruits off the tree, Sora moved on to the Agility and Defense Fruits before placing all 120 fruits in the Storage Ring.
After checking everything else, Sora began his daily training and stayed in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. With his remaining time in the days inside the realm, after during the daily training, Sora spent his time trying to sing. Although his voice sounded bad and didn't bring out the beauty or full potential of the words, he kept singing.
While he sang, he would try drawing with a couple of papers and pencils he had in the Storage Ring, which he had when he was a P.E. teacher.
After 15 days, Sora exited out of the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal and he looked around the City of London. He left the last day in the Realm alone for when he might need it later. He would use that day left to transport fishes, a couple of crabs, and turtles for consumption whenever he feels like eating seafood.
Walking through the streets, and kindly greeting the people he passes by, Sora thought about buying some spices, herbs and condiments. Thinking about that, Sora decided to plant a little of vegetables, apples, peaches, plums, and cherries.
Sora smiled and walked to the nearby stores that sell marine life, spices, herbs and condiments, vegetables, apple seed, peach seed, plum seed and a cherry seed.
After buying every single thing, Sora transported the fish, crabs and turtles to the pond before turning to the barren land of the Realm. Quickly making some holes, Sora planted all the vegetables he bought and the seedlings from the apples, peaches, plums, and cherries.
Leaving the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, Sora noticed it was 11 in the morning already. He walked over to a phone booth he knew that the Western Branch uses to travel to the Reverse London.
This type of thing was called Phone Gate by the people of the Western Branch. Something which Sora had learnt from Genryusai when he asked him about stuff concerning this place. As the Head-Captain of the Gotei 13, he had information about certain stuff that others don't generally get.
After asking a couple more questions, Sora even knew that the people here that could see dragons are called Witches and Wizards. When Sora heard dragons, his interest was piqued.
Having never seen a real dragon before, besides Shenron and Porunga, Sora was interested in this new world's dragons.
Quickly stepping into the booth, Sora scanned it with his spiritual energy and felt an 'empty' area beneath the phone booth. Sora knew that this was probably the gate which only appears to those who either have a lot of spiritual energy or can see dragons.
With a quick stomp, the phone booth was forcefully activated and launched Sora downwards.
Looking around at the London replica and the large amount of green everywhere he looked, Sora nodded as he remembered what Genryusai told him.
Walking around, Sora noticed some people running towards him.
Looking at them running to him, Sora used Bullet Step and disappeared from their view.
Sora wasn't going to bother himself with dealing with these people that are going to stop him from going further. He doesn't want to make the trip last longer than it needs to be.
After disappearing from the view of those who saw him appear, Sora walked down the streets and looked at all the different types of dragons. However, looking at them, Sora could only reveal an amazed look.
Whenever his gaze landed on a dragon, it would only lower its head under Sora's eyes. Some of them even shook in fear as Sora walked really close to them. Quickly looking away and walking far away from the dragons, Sora tried to not draw attention to himself.
Sora made his way over to a huge building with the words [Wing Bind] placed on it in bold letters. Walking in, Sora spread his spiritual energy once more and looked for the person that could be the head of Wing Bind.
With a flash, Sora's eyes darted to the second most top floor. Walking up all the way to the second top floor, Sora walked in through the only door there.
Upon entering the room, Sora noticed an old woman sitting behind a desk filled with stacks of papers. In the corner of the room stood a small dragon.
Seeing the old woman continue her work in the stack of papers, Sora approached and sat on the chair in front of her desk.
After waiting for a couple of minutes, the old woman raised her head and looked at Sora. Instantly, surprise flashed through her eyes, "I don't recognize you, are you new here?"
"No, not at all. I am here to relay some trivial information," smiled Sora. The old woman had her hair done in a bun, and from her curves and her face, Sora noticed that she used to be a real beauty back in the past. She wore a dress shirt and military pants which brought out an authoritative look from her.
"Hm? What is this 'trivial' information?" The old woman looked at Sora with narrowed eyes and asked him about the trivial information.
"I only came by to say that I will be staying in the Western Branch for two days possible." Sora nodded as he told her with a calm expression before adding, "And that Soul Society, the Eastern Branch, has a new ruler."
"What?!" Slapping her hands on the table and standing up with a shocked face, the old woman looked at Sora suspiciously. "How can you prove it?"
"Remember the disaster that came and went a few weeks ago? That was because of the Soul King dying and the new ruler being appointed," calmly explained Sora as he looked at the old woman gradually sitting back down with an amazed expression before sighing.
"Hais, I'm growing too old for this."
The old woman rubbed her forehead with a defeated look before looking at the back of the man leaving the room.
'Leaving already? Hmm... he said he will be staying for two days...'
After seeing Sora leave the room, the old woman thought deeply for a moment before moving her gaze to the phone next to her. Quickly contacting someone, the old woman told them something before hanging up the next second.
Looking back at the stack of papers, the woman threw herself on the desk, "Soul Society... the Eastern Branch... new ruler... new Soul King..."
Lifting herself up, the woman looked back at the door through where Sora left before shaking her head. She turned back to the doc.u.ment sitting right in front of her which would determine the future of some dragons and began looking over it before signing it.
