~...Hope can bring Life to those dead...~Ai... Ai Miyazawa... Mai had searched everywhere around Karakura Town and she couldn't find her beloved anywhere. Perhaps she wasn't there, or... maybe she was and was just hiding. If Ai wanted to avoid Mai... Mai would be incapable of finding her. She considered giving up, but then smacks herself for even considering that. There was still one place that she had not searched, and that was Hueco Mundo. But how in the nine hells would she get there? She didn't have Yaksha, or any other Arrancar to give her a ride to Hueco Mundo... The best she could do was search for someone who had the power to transport her there... she could go back to the Seireitei... But she doubted that she'd be welcomed there. She generally abandoned her post and her duties. No... She had no place amongst the once glorious place she lived. She wanted nothing more then to be reunited with her loved one, and she doubted the Seireitei would be of any help all things considered. So her only choices are one of two things, either running into a spiritual human who could handle these things, or running into an Arrancar who could take her to Hueco Mundo.
What was she to do? She couldn't just go around asking every single person in the town whether or not they are spiritually powerful enough to take her to Hueco Mundo. The chance of her running into an Arrancar was even less of a chance then finding a spiritual human who could help her out. Shinigami and Arrancar never got along, and would never help each other out, which was fine with her. She despised Arrancar anyway, they were nothing but trouble and they hurt humans something she would never approve of. The only two of their type that she herself ever approved of was Seferino Retumbano and Yaksha. She had once beat Seferino in a battle at the Karakura Church Yard, The first time she had looked at dear Maria's grave. Seferino never actually did anything to set her off, she let her hate of Arrancar get the better of her and she struck at him, paralyzed him, and decided not to kill him as a lesson. However he was the first Arrancar she ever met that decided not to eat the souls of Humans. It confused her, but she eventually accepted it and they had become friends, slowly but surely.
Next, she had met Yaksha in Dosojin Junction, his power level made him quite easy to find, and she went to purify him, since at the time he was a Hollow. However, instead of purifying him she had a discussion with him. He turned out to be better then the other Hollow she had fought and purified. They began to grow into friends, though it was exceptionally shaky instead of a firm friendship like Seferino. She stopped for a moment looking at the night sky. She wondered where everyone she knew was, maybe they had died, or advanced into who knows what. Seferino, Kenshou, Yaksha, Tova, Ai... So many people, she didn't know where they were... Ever since she left the Seireitei and went into seclusion and turned into this...mess. She sighed lightly before looking down and rubbing her face a bit, shifting and began walking through the park again. Her thoughts lost to anyone who didn't notice her, she had become such a mess lately. Desperately seeking out Ai, it was taking its toll on her black rings had surrounded her eyes, loss of appetite had begun to wear away at her gigai...
Her Gigai looked skinny, her short white hair and somewhat boyish body was now fiddled down to a skinny not so muscular physique that showed such lack of attention to her health. She found a place to take a seat, exhaustion beginning to get to her and she eyed around slowly, the area was so dark, so... quiet. She couldn't help but feel a little lonely, she had been alone for so long with only Mayu that she had forgotten what it was like to be around people, and having friends. She leaned back lightly her eyes closing as she relaxed for a moment, the bench and night felt cold compared to when she was moving which increased her heat. After a moment of enjoying the coolness of the bench and wend her eyes opened and stared at the stars again, crossing her legs and letting her arms relax upon the back of the bench her mind began to race again, thoughts of abandonment, thoughts of friends and people she considered family. Thoughts of Ai were predominate in her mind, but she couldn't help but think about the days when she was a semi-respected Captain... The loyalty and duty she achieved, the days she spent as a lieutenant with Ai, and finally resting upon the day in the Cherry Blossom Garden. Only one Phrase came to mind which she said out loud...
