    In a similar fashion to him, Raizo reacted to his move also with a diagonal slash. As the the Vizard Commander tried to keep his aim steady, he understood from the manís momentary expression that something hadnít gone exactly the way the Shinigami wanted it to. At the last second, the final remaining piece of his armor that covered his body loosened and shattered, exposing his left arm and directing Shurenís sword to his collarbone. But despite this, Raizo somehow managed to continue his attack and directed is sword towards the young Vizardís own collarbone. Shuren didnít try to stop it unlike this friendís previous attempts to injure him. Although he reflexively tightened his muscle tissue, from his lack of response one could almost say that he welcomed the blow.

    ďA fitting endÖ to a memorable fight.Ē he commented and retracted his sword carefully. Looking at it briefly, he tossed the Zanpakutou away, as if he was discarding it. Afterwards he grabbed the blade of Raizoís sword and slowly pushed it away. He stared at his freshly cut hand and smiled. The Gudoudama behind him disappeared and the reiatsu shroud he had been cloaked in for hours faded away, bit by bit as if it was fire that was being put out. First the markings on his skin and clothes disappeared, and then his skin and eyes turned back to their normal color. The skies calmed down completely and the winds ceased to blow. Ripping the upper parts of his regular clothes off, Shuren deactivated his Bankai. Yet his Shikai was still in use: he was using air manipulation to condense air around his and Raizoís heavy injuries, so neither of them would bleed out. Once he was done he stepped back and walked towards where his sword had stabbed the ground. Picking it up, he sheathed it back into its scabbard and panted. Now that his Bankai wasnít active, he could really feel the exhaustion of his body.
    この状況でお前はどうすることもできないよ。

    The glowing white of Raizo's eyes fading back to their regular silver color was the only real mark of his Bankai sealing itself. Whether it was his choice or pure exhaustion was a matter that could be debated. But the fact that Raizo had no more armor left meant he also had a dangerously depleted reiatsu reserve. Either way, he was grateful that Shuren had used his wind manipulation to seal the Shinigami's wounds. Raizo could have used Tendo, but at this point his body was low on the stores of organic molecules and energy it would need to regenerate even a moderate wound. His mind drifting from the fight for a moment, Raizo stared at the expande of the Plains.

    "How sad it is that we had to spoil such a beautiful spot with our fight, eh?"

    Raizo breathed in heavily and sheathed Tenrei. With his Zanpakuto secured, he dropped to the ground, landing on his bottom and laying his head back. Content for a moment, he looked at the sky.

    "It was a good duel Shuren. Thank you."

    The last two words dropped out a bit more heavily than those which came prior. Raizo knew it was time to discuss a matter of some seriousness.

    The Commander nodded at Raizo’s remark on the plains. Their fight had taken a toll on the dimension: some of the groups of trees had been partially destroyed, while the rest had been wiped out completely, and there were no longer many clouds in the sky as most of them had been scattered away due to Shuren’s winds. As the Shinigami thanked him for the fight, the young man’s eyes opened widely for a short moment. His tone indicated his words held a deeper meaning than just being a simple manner of conveying gratitude. He didn’t reply to his friend, who was now lying on the ground and watching the sky. He set his gaze upon the sky as well but unlike Raizo, continued to stand. “I was thinking, Raizo.” he said and paused to allow the winds hit his naked skin. “And I realized. Before we came here, when we were at the Central Plaza, you said you’d never be able to repay my kindness for helping you out.” he continued. He knew his friend and although he was sure he didn’t mean everything he said literally, he could sense that this time something was different.

    “You are not really the type to express the certainties in life. Even when you’re speaking figuratively.” he explained, still not looking at him. “Besides, it’s not difficult to feel the crushing weight behind your words.” Shuren knew this very well because he was, in a way, in the very same situation. Ever since he had witnessed his own death, his life had shaped around that one single event. It felt like everything he did, no matter how irrelevant it was, worked towards the same goal: leading him to his end. And that of course would naturally put some pressure on him and his actions. Just like the one on Raizo’s thanks. Before concluding what he had to say, Shuren slowly turned his head and faced his friend. “Whatever this favor of yours is, it’s the end of the line for you, isn’t it?”
