The Espada castle was silent, many of its inhabitants were away on personal matters, or sent on a mission by the Espada king Acer. Only two remained in the castle, the king an queen, stood outside…………..Standing upon the soft grass of the training ground, that was surrounded by fifteen foot high walls. The illustrious night was quiet and calm; no sounds were heard except that of the crushing of grass beneath the feet and the soft breathing that mixed with the semi chilled air. The moon was only half full; still it lit up the night sky surrounded by only a few stars.
Acer stood at one end of the training ground, his haori and captain’s outfit was covered by another pink haori with a flowered design on it. On his head was a straw hat, his hair tied back revealing his laid back almost uncaring face, which had not been shaving in days. The sash around his waist held two medium length katana’s. In his hand was a small bowl filled with sake, as he watched her prepare. It was not often that Acer would fight, choosing to avoid such situations, preferring to drink and relax. However today was different. It was not a fight but more a training session, with the woman he loved. It was to make her stronger to get her use to her abilities and use to fighting.
This was a training session, but that did not mean he would go easy on her, he would treat this like a real fight, knowing that to be the best way to train her, she would need to get use to such things as killing intent, like the one of Kenpachi. As he drunk his sake he looked over to her and smiled. “When you’re ready, attack me with all you’ve got”
