84 Dark Ones
Senna woke up to a small room while lying in a futon. Her head felt fuzzy and her abdomen still had some lingering pains from last night. Remembering last night, she hurriedly jumped up and ran out the room, smashing the doors to the side.
Opening the door stunned her, Itsuki sat there enjoying tea as three girls sat around him. A beautiful dark-skinned girl relaxed her head on his lap while getting the occasional pat, a cute petite girl sat next to him as she peeled apples and fed them herself and a voluptuous beauty sat behind him giving his shoulders a massage.
She was stunned by this picture and was more stunned with what followed. Itsuki looked at her with half open eyes and pointed in a direction. Looking at where Itsuki was pointing, Senna walked up to the door and opened it, only to see Ichigo there fully bandaged from head to toe and another strange girl sitting next to him. She had created an orange barrier surrounding him and as the bandage slowly tore apart, she saw the wounds of Ichigo heal at a considerable pace.
Seeing this, she just smiled and went into the room.

Itsuki didn't care what she did as he finished his tea and slowly leaned back, resting his head on Rangiku's chest. Rangiku started playing with his hair. Itsuki's eyes shot open and looked at a direction while the girls did the same.
"Who did Soul Society send now?"
"Not necessarily Soul Society."
As soon as he said this, the room to the living room opened and Urahara walked in with another two figures to the side. One was Hinamori while the other was an Onmitsukido member that had a familiar reiatsu. Seeing Itsuki surrounded by the girls, a hint of jealousy passed through Hinamori's eyes as she kneeled in front of Itsuki with Yuki following.
Hearing Itsuki's order, both got up while Hinamori started explaining why he was here. The member next to her had applied for his personal guards and needed examination while Hinamori had finished all the work back at base. The only time when they were needed now was to go over reports. Unless it was important, it would all be handled by Maneko.
Itsuki looked at Soi Fon who just clicked her tongue and left with Yuki to test her. No matter what Soi Fon thought, she was still a loyal subordinate.
Hinamori then found a spot behind Itsuki and stood there, doing her duties as his personal guard. Time passed as Ichigo was slowly healed by Orihime and Itsuki was waiting for the Ryodoji clan to attack.
Senna looked at Ichigo being healed but her mind was far from it. She had expected to be confined in some sort of prison. Everywhere she looked, a white eagle would come into view and just stare at her as if monitoring each of her actions. Knowing that she couldn't escape, she just gave up.
It wasn't until Ichigo had got up, was she allowed to leave. However, she noticed that the bird had kept following her. Back at Urahara store, Itsuki had one of his eyes closed as he was observing Senna and Ichigo.
'I feel like a certain someone would love to have this ability.'
Pushing away the useless thoughts, Itsuki continued looking as the two helped a soul find his father, ending up at a shrine of some sort. Then a senkaimon opened and Ukitake came out with Toshiro joining them. Realising that they had to move, Itsuki sent Rangiku and Soi Fon while he left for somewhere else. Rangiku went to stand behind Toshiro as he was still her captain while Rukia and Renji were confronting Ichigo. Various Onmitsukido members arrived behind Soi Fon as they watched Renji shout at Ichigo.
"You do know that she is the Shinenju!"
"Yeah, I know."
Renji was surprised at this confirmation,
Toshiro interrupted him,
"We know that Ganryu has a plan to destroy Soul Society and the Shinenju Senna is the key."
Ichigo stood in front of the members of Soul Society as he looked at them with a resolute gaze, not intending to back down. Just as the situation was about to escalate, all the individuals felt a few figures suddenly appearing above them. They all wore the Ryodoji clan's armour and attacked the group.
While this was happening, Itsuki appeared within an unknown world.
"So, this is the valley of screams."
Muttering to himself, Itsuki made his way to where most of the souls were gathered. What entered his view was an altar shaped into a long pillar from the ground surrounded by a formation, indicating its use for rituals. Looking at the runes littering the formation, Itsuki concluded that it was meant for the blank souls to be attracted to Senna, constricting the dimension. This would lead to the Dangai collapsing and the living world colliding with Soul Society Destroying the two realms.
As Itsuki adjusted the formation here and there with a mischievous expression, he felt a few sources of reiatsu entering the area. Disappearing from the spot, Itsuki watched Ganryu place Senna in the middle of the formation and go to activate it.
Ganryu had placed Senna on top and activated the formation causing a series of purple globes to slowly revolve around Senna on top. Thinking that the formation was okay and just needed to be powered up, Ganryu turned around when a pulling force attracted him backwards. It was not just him; the other members of his clan were also dragged backwards.
Hurriedly shutting the formation off, Ganryu looked back at the formation and then at Senna who was missing. With his eyes widening in shock, he and the other members looked around only to see her in the arms of a young man. His captain's Haori indicated his status.
Itsuki looked coldly at the members as their identities came to mind. The called themselves the dark ones and were led by Ganryu.
First person that came to view was a man named Jai,
He was a large man with dark-black skin, full lips, short bald faded black hair, and a broad nose. His widened eyes revealed them to be black. He wore a white kimono undergarment underneath his dark green shihakuso, a blue obi belt sash wrapped around his waist, a dark green armoured breastplate that was on his front chest that had bronze outlines around the armoured breastplate and curved bronze arrows in the centre which was also held by red ropes. He also wore a dark green beret cap on the top of his head, white tabi socks, and tan zori shoes.
The next person was named Riyan,
He had light skin, blue spiky hair, and black eyes. He wore a sleeveless white kimono undergarment underneath his sleeveless dark green sleeveless shihakuso, a yellow obi belt sash wrapped around his waist, a dark green beret cap on the top of his head, dark-black elbow-length arm-warmers, the same dark green armoured breastplate that Jai wears around his chest but had a silver outlining around the armoured breastplate and curved silver arrows in the centre which was also held by red ropes, dark green gauntlets on hands that have thin curved silver inlay, white tabi socks, and tan zori shoes. He also wore steel armour around his face which exposed his eyes, nose, and his mouth.
Standing next to him was the only female, going by the name Benin,
She was a tall woman with tan skin, long wavy waist length deep lavender coloured hair, thin deep lavender eyebrows, and yellow-golden eyes. She wore a split open sleeved white kimono undergarment underneath her dark green split open sleeved shihakuso that exposed most of her cleavage, a dark-red obi belt sash wrapped around her waist. She also wore a dark green beret cap on the top of her head and the same dark green armoured breastplate that had bronze outlining around the armoured breastplate and curved arrows in the centre held by red ropes covering her around the chest, white tabi socks, and tan zori shoes.
The fourth member was a man named Mue,
He had dark-black hair, turquoise coloured eyes, thin dark-black eyebrows, and pale skin. He wore a white kimono undergarment underneath his dark green shihakuso, a lavender obi belt sash wrapped around his waist, dark green armour that was held by red ropes covering his chest which also had bronze outlining and curved arrows around and in the centre of the armoured breastplate itself. Like the others, he also wore a dark green beret cap on the top of his head, white tabi socks, and tan zori shoes. He kept his hair tied halfway down his back
The last member was a man name Bau,
He had dark-black hair and a large build. He wore a white kimono undergarment underneath his dark green shihakuso, a light green obi belt sash wrapped around his waist, and a dark green armour on his chest that was held by red ropes covering and had bronze outlining curved arrows around and in the centre of the armoured breastplate. He wore a dark green beret cap on the top of his head, with a grey veil that has the red ohm sign in the centre covering his face, white tabi socks, and tan zori shoes. The fluttering of the veil revealed his face that composed of pink skin, including no eyebrows, bloodshot eyes, dark-black eyes, and sharp, jagged teeth.
Ganryu himself wore the same form of armour the other Dark One's wore, only with gold bordering on his as opposed to red. He also wore a long black cape, with a red interior, and what looked like gold frill from his waist, connected to his red obi belt-like sash. He was fairly tall and had long white hair that reached down past his shoulders. A scar was plastered on his face from his forehead, traced diagonally down to the corner of his jaw.
Apart from their colours and armour they wore, the only similar thing four of them had was a shocked expression as they hadn't felt Itsuki's presence at all. They all watched Itsuki put his hand on a device in his ear and nodding,
Suddenly an insignia appeared on Itsuki's neck in the form of a pasqueflower. The said insignia vanished into nothingness as the six felt a tremendous pressure weigh them down. What went unheard in their ears was,
"Captain Minamoto Itsuki, permission to remove limiter has been granted."
