It must have been seven days since Ly entered earth for his hunt. Unfortunately the target had too much of a head start and Ly had lost their trail four days into the hunt. After losing the trail on the edge of karakura town Ly had spent the next three days investigating the area, unsuccessfully, he searched for any traces of their Reiatsu. By the end of the seventh day Ly had searched the entire area where he lost his target, the surrounding area and even back tracked the trail in case they doubled back. The trail had gone completely cold and his target had escaped.
Ly found himself wondering Karakuras streets for most of the night before ending up in some sort of park. The park itself was nothing special to look at. Mostly it was a family park, wide open grass areas for kids to run around, play equipment to one side, not many trees in comparison to other parks. Over all it was a wide open area, nowhere for Ly to hide or others to hide from him. It was a risky strategy, Ly knew he could take on his target in a head on fight without too much risk, however his target wasn’t the only threat in this damned town.
Despite the risk of others finding him Ly knew his target would be on the lookout for him, if an opportunity presented itself his target would strike. The rogue shinigami had tried hunting Ly a while back and had cost her dearly. The encounter had cost her, her left arm and a nasty scar right down her face. Since then they had been hunting each other whenever each had gotten a trace of the other. Ly loved the hunt, plus she was a strong worthy opponent. She on the other hand was obsessed with the hunt simply for revenge.
There Ly waited for half a day, as the day went on and the humans came out Ly was becoming less convinced his target was going to come out. As Ly started to conceder leaving he saw movement in the corner of his eye. In an instant Ly was battle ready. However instead of his target he saw a little girl, a spirit around ten years old and the hollow stalking her. Ly couldn’t allow this, if the shinigami caught wind of a hollow hunting a spirit they would descend on the park in no time.
Needing to prevent this Ly pounced; he covered the distance in an instant and set himself upon the hollow. Before the hollow even knew what hit him, Ly was upon him, bit through his throat almost decapitating it and struck with his tail, almost slicing its body in half. The hollow was dead before it even realised it was attacked. With the hollow now dead Ly walked back, straight past the little girls spirit, to where he had been laying.
As Ly sat under a tree, he decided to wait just a little longer before leaving. Waiting for his target, the last thing Ly expected was for the spirit he saved to come running up to him. Instead of running away scared, as everyone does when they first see a hollow, she showed no fear approaching him. Instead of screaming she started to thank Ly for saving her live. Unsure how to react Ly simply nodded. From there the spirit proceeded to even lay down next to Ly, cuddling up to him.
It was then that Ly could sense something coming. Instantly Ly got into battle stance, his tail raised, extending claws and bearing his teeth. Unexpectedly the spirit didn’t run away, instead she took cover behind Ly. There was nothing he could do about it right now, they were here.
