Byakuya frowned at his newest drawing. Ever since she'd sworn to never darken his mind again all he'd been doing was draw, paint and even had gone so far as to make clay models of the faceless witch that now haunted him. A knock came at his door. From the aura it was Rukia....maybe she could tell him, but did he dare? She knocked again.
"Come in Rukia."
Her brother had not been at breakfast nor at lunch and now it was close to tea time. Why was he so distracted? Or was it that he was not as well as he pushed his appearance. At that thought she nearly didn't knock a second time. Her hand was on the panel when he said...'Come in.'
She entered as calm as she could. He was looking at a paper when she came in with the tray of tea and some fresh fruit. Setting them down she came towards the desk when he suddenly crumpled up the paper and threw it in the near by basket. She bent down and took it out of the basket, unfolding it she nearly blushed. The woman was faceless in the hooded robe but her brother had outlined every feminine curve with an artists hand. So this was what he was distracted with, a woman. Byakuya's cough had her gripping the paper in a death grip as her red face faced her brother. "I...I had no idea you were interested in a woman." Byakuya narrowed his eyes at her and she paled. His hand was held out, she blinked until his pointer finger pointed at the paper. "Oh."
As she handed it over she looked down at the reports on the corner of his desk. She blinked as they weren't reports at all, but more drawings, drawings of a girl. "She's beautiful. Who is she?" Byakuya stiffened. "That is Jamie." Rukia looked up at him. "Brother?" Byakuya could not meet her eyes but flashed away leaving her with a scattering of drawings in his wake.
Nemu hurried to the door of her and her master's dwelling. Someone was annoyingly knocking at their door during her captain's rest time. She opened it and was shocked speechless at their uninvited guest at their door. "Nemu! I set you a simple task to answer...." He stopped when he seen who it was. "Well I see why you are speechless. What can I do for you captain?" Byakuya frowned. "Can we not take this inside?" Mayori rubbed his unpainted chin before nodding. "Come in then make your self at home. Nemu please go and make some tea for our guest and I, we will be in the st...." Byakuya shook his head. "It would be better if we took this to your lab." Mayori blinked hard at him. "My lab? I am not allowed to do any up grades on any creations other then my own." Byakuya shook his head. "No I want you to give me a mechanical heart and a block on certain memories." Mayori's body went through the sudden chills. His tongue licked his lips. "A mechanical heart and a memory block that does sound juicy, but I'm afraid I'll have to pass. If anyone found out they would exile me to nothing. I wouldn't even get the pathetic ghigi that keisuki has been existing in since he's been exiled to the living realm." Byakuya narrowed his eyes at him. "I thought you would relish giving me at least a check up to see if I am as well as I profess I am." Mayori smirked. "I see. Yes lets. Nemu bring the tea to the lab. Give us an hour and a half. This way captain Kuchiki."
