He arrived. Albeit, some few things else preceded his appearance; footsteps, aura, presence, to mention but a few.
Kira traversed the frontal tori gate, feet coming to pat flat against paved ground. An encirclement of colorful sakura trees enclosed the shrine and he beheld their flower adorned branches jettison hypnotic cherry blossom petals into the air. The petals fell, but soon invisible winds caught them and they became adrift, forced to dance atop aero currents. There was a tranquil ambience to the place that was becoming of a shrine, but for some reasons it aroused irrational suspicion. Not a single soul was present. Well, not as far as his perception was concerned. The place was completely uninhabited or so he thought until a voice urged him to perish that notion.
''I've been waiting for you, Kira-san.'' The speaker said.
Slightly startled but refraining from outwardly disclosing this, Kira threw his gaze upwards -from whence the sound came- aiming a pair of crimsoned eyes in the speaker's direction. And there he stood -Nakamura Shiro- atop a roof. How in the world ...
Already cognizant of the kinds of thoughts his sudden appearance would've instigated within Kira, Shiro yielded a mildly mischievous smile while squinting his eyes. It breezed for a brief moment and passing winds tugged against his hair strands, disheveling them. Excited by these same winds, his shihakusho grew restless, fluttering with noise.
Kira observed the young man from afar with gauging eyes. Concealment? Getting by his spiritual awareness was a daunting task and the blonde Shinigami knew this. To perfectly accomplish such feat, two things were necessary; masterful aura suppression, the likes sufficient to completely muffle the resonance of one's spirit, and-
Teleportation?!! All of a sudden, KIRA BLITZED a short distance backwards; A flash of crimson light prior emanating from his soles. He reached impulsively for the hilt of his zanpakutō but stopped some few inches short of it.
''Hey, no fair! Why did you retreat back there?'' Shiro said seeming genuinely confused, while brandishing an unsheathed wakizashi. He was standing right in front of Kira. ''It's not like I wanted to cut your head off or anything.
Taking some leisurely steps forward, Shiro pleaded with Kira to remain perfectly still just before performing another disappearing act, only for him to almost immediately manifest and attempt another beheading slash.
Losing then subsequently registering Shiro's presence, Kira quickly enacts a hastened sword draw and blocks the flanking strike. At which point Shiro chuckled and withdrew, physical form slowly losing corporeality until he was no more. He completely disappeared.
''Tell me, Kira-san, why can't we see the wind? Hurried footsteps began to echo at different points within Kira's proximity but shortly afterwards they dwindled in resonance, stifling to less than a whisper.
Abruptly, through the corner of his eyes, Kira caught a glimpse of Shiro's figure.
Shiro smiled and swung vertically, generating a massive blast of condensed blue reiryoku in the path of his swing. The sword beam raced forward astonishingly fast, cleaving a fissure into the ground in the wake of its passage as it sought to claim all life within trajectory.
Eyes reflecting the azure glow of the impending sword beam, Kira's impulses came alive inciting a mimicry of the very same movements as Shiro; He flicked his wrist, directing a slash at naught but thin and from the tip of his blade a bloodied crescent beam lunged forward at speeds no less faster than its opposing counterpart.
BOTH SWORDBEAMS CLASPED explosively with a resounding bang, cancelling each other out, as a mushroom cloud of fire, black smoke and upturned earth blossomed. Circular shockwaves galloped outwards from the energetic collision, wrecking utter havoc in their wake. Grounds were excavated, buildings decimated and reduced to rubble and trees blown apart; Both combatants were equally displaced several dozens of metres.
Kira managed to steady himself, dampening his inertia by thrusting his zanpakutō into the ground. Skidding to a halt, he tossed his spiritual awareness right back into surrounding space, effortlessly piercing through the thick veil of obscure black fumes in order to scry Shiro. But he was nowhere to be found.
''What are you looking at? I'm right here!'' BEFORE KIRA COULD REACT to the sound of Shiro's voice, something had already struck hard at his midsection. Sending him crashing through a line up of trees.
Shiro later materialized, right leg hanging in the air as though he had delivered a kick. Retracting his leg, he then started walking in the direction he'd sent Kira flying, zanpakutō kept akimbo.
RELINQUISHING THE REIGNS previously keeping his spiritual presence in check, immense amounts of spiritual gravity broke out at once; saturating the air with a boundless oppressive weight that beared down heavily against all things. THE WORLD WAS FORCED TO TREMBLE in sheer dread.
''Sever, Kamaitachi.'' He said, with a devilish smile. Eyes still squinted.
Immediately, the blade of Shiro's zanpakutō responded to this command by denaturing into a cloud of silvery metallic dust. The particles were abruptly caught up in a whirlwind and strangely disappeared without a trace.
