Yamamoto had spent his days in his office with Chojiro in isolation. Only ever coming out when he wants to have tea or to gather the divisions to delegate orders to them.
This was his lifestyle when he found out Sora was to be prisoned in Central Great Underground Prison. Even after he found out that Sora had escaped and went to Soul Society, he couldn't let go of his grief of losing another friend, and someone who he sees as a brother.
Today he was standing on the balcony of his office lookingg over all of seiretei with a lonely back facing Chojiro.
Chojiro, Genryusai's lieutenant, was lost as he had no idea how to fix this problem. Never had he imagined that Genryusai, his most admired person, would think of Sora as a brother or even a family member. Especially with his personality.
"Chojiro," called Genryusai. His eyes looked over all of Rukongai District. He held his can in hand and he couldn't help but sigh.
"Yes, Captain," asnwered Chojiro.
'What could he want to tell me?'
"Prepare two cups of tea." Genryusai kept facing forward looking over Rukongai, not meaning to turn around any time soon.
"I'll prepare it right away sir."
'Is he finally going to invite me for a cup of tea?' Chojiro, the poor old man, began indulging in his fantasies as he began preparing tea leaves and a tea pot to make tea. While the water inside the tea pot began heating up along with the tea leaves, Chojiro pulled out two tea cups from a nearby cabinet.
He continued preparing everything, going as far as to place some sweets on the table and pulling out some sugar personally made by himself. No longer able to contain his happy attitude, Chojiro was delighted, "what's the occassion Captain?"
"To wash away my pain for the day."
Such an answer was unexpected for Chojiro. His heated mood was instantly drowned in cold water as he stopped smiing and seriously placed everthing in the table and served the cups of tea.
After he finished setting the last tea cup, Chojiro bowed, "The tea is ready Captain."
Without uttering a single word, Genryusai sat down on the couch and grabbed a cup of tea.
'I can finally drink tea on the same table as the Captain!' Chojiro's mind was racing. He walked forward and sat in front of Genryusai. When he was about to reach for the cup of tea, Genryusai began glaring at him.
"What do you think you are doing," spat Genryusai.
"I'm... drinking the tea?" Chojiro froze, his hand stopped before it can lay a finger on the table that sat alone. 'Did I do something wrong?'
Genryusai kept glaring at Chojiro, "Go monitor the divisions lieutenant."
Chojiro looked down depressed. Never had he expected to make his Captain angry in the most unexpected way. Was he moving to fast? Did he do something to displease Genryusai? He could only sigh at such injustice as he stood up and walked out. But not before sending one last look back at his Captain with warmth. Warmth of a man who completely looks up to his superior.
Sighing was the only thing Genryusai can do at this moment as he stared at the cup of tea he had Chojiro prepare. Today, he had an extra cup made in memory of Sora. He doesn't know how much longer he has left to live.
There was no sure way to know when he would see Sora again. Drinking a cup of tea today was the least he could do to honor the time they had spent working and bonding together as friends and then as brothers.
He closed his eyes as he sipped the cup of tea in his hands. Its warmth seeped down into his bones making him feel relaxed. It released all the tension in his body. The sweet and exquisite taste of the tea remained in his mouth as he savored the moment a bit longer.
Opening his eyes to the noise, Yamamoto glared at who made the noise. Looking at the man in front of him, Genryusai could only close his eyes once more and shake his head.
'I must be growing old. Already having delusions while having tea.'
Yamamoto smiled as he looked at the person in front of him, 'he looks to have not changed. It must be because he's part of my imagination.'
Genryusai's eyes widened at that sound. He looked at the man in front of him once more, but this time with anger, "Don't spit out that tea!"
The reunion that Genryusai much wanted never happened. Having it ruined by the actions of the man in front of him, Genryusai could only shake his head. Although his expression on the outside was fierce, on the inside, Genryusai was glad to have seen the man once more.
"Don't yell man! I just forgot to put some sugar in it," snickered the man.
"I'm surprised who haven't aged at all, Sora." Genryusai began glaring at Sora, "Why are you here?"
"Of course I haven't aged! A man like me should be eternally young," bellowed Sora. He down the tea and put back the cup as he said, "Bitter!"
Genryusai continued glaring at Sora as the temperature in the room kept rising. The pressure also began to rise, but Sora kept sitting there like nothing is happening.
Suddenly, the pressure vanished as Sora yawned, "Can you stop doing that. Getting worked up is bad for you. I'm here to tell you something important."
Gneryusai was at a loss for words. Never had he expected for Sora to casually make the temperature and the spiritual pressure disappear in an instant. The only person he knows who can do this... is the Soul King.
How he knows this is, is from the time he had visited the Soul King thousands of years ago after the defeat of Yhwach. The time when his Gotei 13 had been approved by the Soul King himself.
As well as the time he had made a promise to the Royal Guard about protecting the key that leads to the Soul King Palace, where the Soul King resides.
His expression turned Serious as Sora said that he had something important to discuss. Last time something like this happened, Soul Society made a crusade to Hueco Mundo on the whims of Sora. That time, almost half of Gotei 13 lost their lives to the ruler of Hueco Mundo, Baraggan Louisenbairn.
Baraggan Louisenbairn is an Arrancar who had the ability to control death, mainly the aging process of the living and non-living. Baraggan was a powerful hollow that Sora had a tough time fighting without the use of his Bankai.
In the end, Sora had to use his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan to get Soul Society out of there. Although only using the ability of one eye, it was already enough for Sora to get all of Soul Society out of there.
Unbeknownst to everyone, Sora returned to Hueco Mundo at a later date and got rid of Baraggan, the ruler of Hueco Mundo. This did not escape the eyes and ears of Genryusai.
Genryusai glared at Sora, "What is so important that you had to come here in person?"
"Only to tell you that I will be taking over Soul Society in a couple of days," shrugged Sora. Speaking with such nonchalance had Genryusai wanting to rip of his beard and proclaim 'This beard is fake!', even with his chin bleeding.
"That's an offense that requires immediate death," snapped Genryusai. He was firm on the outside, but inside he was at his wits end. If Sora does end up trying to take over Soul Society, what would he do? Side with someone who he sees as a brother and fought and worked together for 2,000 years? Or go with one supreme boii, the Soul King?
With a light smile, Sora shook his head, "I only came here to tell you this before I make a move that can possibly affect all of Soul Society. Even the other branches might get affected by this. The North and South branches are isolated from the world, so no worries from their. But the West Branch located in London will be heavily affected."
Genryusai no long answered as he kept a tight hold over his cane, ready to draw out his sword at a moments notice.
"I'm planning to visit the North, South and West Branches after I am done with taking over Soul Society and Hueco Mundo," softly said Sora as he looked for any type of alcoholic drink in Genryusai's cabinet.
"You're crazy!" yelled Genryusai. His eyes were bloodshot as he listened to what the man in front of him was deciding to do. Not only will he be taking over Soul Society. BUT EVEN HUECO MUNDO!
He doesn't know what to do any more. He let his grip over the cane go as he shakily lifted the cup of tea and drank it. After a drink, his hands stopped shaking and his eyes regained their lost resolute shine! "Count me in then."
"Aha!" Sora laughed triumphantly as he pulled out a nicely aged gr.a.p.e wine that was from 6,000 years ago. Made by a village that was located near the shores of an unmarked island located near China.
Hollows had infested the island and no survivors were left from the creators of said splended wine. The wine was inside a nicely made glass bottle as well, proof of the village's love for wine. Sadly, no shinigami existed back then and they weren't stationed on said island.
Popping open the bottle, the nice and strong scent of the wine wafted out of the bottle and tickled Sora's nose. Quickly fishing out two cups for the wine, Sora poured himself some as he looked at Genryusai's twitching eyebrow.
"There isn't much you need to prepare," said Sora. He finished pouring himself some wine and poured some for Genryusai before continuing, "All you need to know is that I have around 2,000 troops with the strength of a Captain-class fighter."
Picking up the cup of wine Sora had gave him, Genryusai downed it in one go. "PUFahhh~"
He let out his breath at such a tasty wine. However, it seems to have been too strong for him as he began feeling woozy. A nice cold feelign came from his stomach as it moved over his body making feel relaxed. Feeling so relaxed, Genryusai didn't even care about how strong Sora's troops were, he only nodded at his words and smiled.
'I'm glad your back...' Genryusai smiled softly as he looked at Sora with a caring gaze.
"This isn't strong at all!" Sora also downed the bottle of wine and yelled out, but not before getting drunk the next moment. "Hehe, nevermind, the effects of this are pretty strong."
Sora put the cap back on the bottle and placed it behind his back and into his Storage Ring, away from Genryusai's view.
Both Sora and Genryusai bumped cups and down the contents in the cups in one go once more.
"What was.. the reason we... hic* cheered?" asked Genryusai, with rosy cheeks.
Sora sat there for a moment staring at his cup, "No reason at all."
He stood up from his chair and looked at Genryusai, "Well then, hic* I have to go now. I have some people to visit still."
"Haha, mind go brrr."
Freezing at Genryusai's words, Sora realized that Genryusai was weak to alcohol. What he just said was him saying what his brain felt after going through two small cups of 6,000 year aged wine. The buzzing of the mind after feeling the effects of alcohol. The wine must also be too strong for the average person to drink.
Sighing, Sora left the drunk Genryusai sleep. He walked out of the room and closed the door behind him before resting his back on it. He smiled as he remembered earlier, 'I'm glad to see you too Genryusai..'
Sora knew too well what Genryusai was thinking and he couldn't help but feel glad to see the old man again. He knows fully well that they saw each other as brothers, but both were never going to mention it.
It was at this moment Sora was glad he had followed Genryusai when he first arrived in this world when he said, 'Now follow me.'
It was that moment that Sora took his first step to realising who he needed to be, even with all the defects of his bloodlines. What he needed to do... was to embrace them.
