Scene change to the cave
Everyone is sat against the walls of the cave. Uryuu is still watching Ichigo looking extremely worried.
Uryuu: He's looking in really bad shape, how much longer can take this?
Kisuke: Not long...his body reached its limit a while back, I would say its just about to give up.
Ryuken: I really thought the old man had planned this out all out...as daunting as this task was I expected him succeed.
Kisuke: Ichigo san has always had that effect on people. His eyes always held a determination that struck right through to the heart.
Uryuu looks down at Yoruichi sitting next to him. Silent tears can be seen going down her face. He kneels down and puts a hand on her shoulder, he looks over to Kisuke and Ryuken.
Uryuu: you're already speaking as if he's gone...
Urahara Kisuke stands up slowly, holding himself stiffly. He looks at Ichigo for a brief moment.
Kisuke: (sighs) I guess it's time to go inform the captains, we'll need to plan how to proceed without Ichigo.
Voice: that will no longer be necessary, your time to act has passed!
A figure appears behind Kisuke, he is dressed in a long white cloak, his face covered by a white mask of intricate design. He walks past Urhahara and towards Ichigo.
Kisuke: so you have finally arrived.
Stranger: we have been here for a while, watching, seeing what you would do next. It is time for you to stand down, we will take it from here.
Kisuke: what is the kings decision?
The figure pulls out his sword. It is long and black, with small curved spike protruding from the top of its point.
Stranger: the enemy shall be taken care of, but before that
He moves closer to Ichigo standing directly by his side
Stranger: it has been decided that this child is an anomaly that must be removed.
The stranger holds his sword out over Ichigo, point down. He holds it with both hands. He strikes down at Ichigo's chest.
Stranger: what...is this?!
You see him looking down at Ichigo, the tip of his blade has pierced ichigo's chest but just the tip.
A huge amount of reiatsu suddenly explodes out of Ichigo, the cave is filled thick with dust and debri flying around. The stranger is thrown against the wall and crashes to the ground.
As the dust clears you see Ichigo standing up. He has a hard look in his eye as he looks around the cave.The stranger stands up roughly.
Stranger: I see. That circle wasn't aimed at hiding his reiatsu or blocking it off, you were hiding what had been done to him!!
Urahara: the king needs to understand this was the only way, even you may not be enough to hold back the current onslaught.
Ryuken: Tell him this was the last act of Genryusai Shikeguni Yamamoto.
The stranger looks at both of them for a moment and then disappears. Yoruichi looks over at Ichigo, tears in he eyes, her voice filled with emotion.
Yoruichi: you made it Ichigo!
Ichigo looks at her for a moment, his face emotionless. He turns his head and focuses his gaze on Urahara.
Ichigo: I need to speak to Aizen.
Next week: The Zero Squad.
