Bleach Short: Two Friends Will Meet AgainA small red haired girl ran through the levels of the Nest of Maggots, a detention center of the Soul Society. Each level held its own brand of prisoners, their crimes ranging across the board from murder to petty crimes. She saw people of every age in the cells, Hollows bunched together and eating each other for survival. She named each level as she passed through.
"Toukatsu Kokujou .Shugou .Kyoukan Dai Kyoukan .Shounetsu Dai Shounetsu here it is. Muken." She stood before the doors leading to the final level of the Nest of Maggots, pulling out her authorization papers for the guards to see. She held the food tray in one hand, handing the papers to the largest of the guards. The guard read the paper and frowned.
` "What's your business here?"
"I'm supposed to feed a prisoner the number is uhm .122433967810."Both guards froze up, staring at her with horrified expressions. One guard knelt and took her face in his hands, mutter
Chapter 22: The DarkCH.22
A month came and went, their travel to Mandalore hindered by several asteroid fields and damages resulting from said fields. Xero hadn't told Devin of her previous loss of memory, though the same incident occurred twice since then. Both times had resulted in Xero waking to find herself somewhere farther and farther from where she had left Devin. The most recent time, she had woken in the cargo bay, sitting on several crates with large and deep cuts in her palms, from what she did not know. She healed the injuries and pretended to have just dozed off when the pilot asked her what she was doing sitting on the crates. She left and abruptly ran into one of the other Force sensitive individuals on the ship, helping him up and apologizing. He stared at her before walking away quickly, exuding fear as he went. Xero knew the man was afraid of her, the reason was unknown to her, but she knew he was ever since she had been on the ship. They neared Mandalore a day after the final

Xero waited outside the room as Devin changed his clothes, looking over her decrepit lightsaber. The casing was warped and corroded from their jaunt through Mustafar, the link connecting both ends of her double lightsaber melted past ever relinquishing its hold. They were headed to Yavin V to, hopefully, get permission to fix both Xero's lightsaber and replace Devin's lost one. She was hesitant on returning there, knowing the Zarbrack Master would not be happy upon her return. As the ship neared Yavin V, she started getting glimpses of Zargen Ke's emotions and thoughts through the old, and forced, bond they shared. She feared he, too could see into her mind and decidedly put up a thick barrier around her mind to avoid him ever getting an idea of her plans in the future. Devin stepped out of the room in clean black robes, looking much healthier than he had a week ago. He smiled

Kiera's eyes snapped open, her cheek pressed against the rough dirt of the clearing. She frowned and brushed her hair from her eyes slowly with her right hand, her left tingling and unresponsive. She felt something wet and withdrew her fingers, sweat rolling down her fingers to her palm. Her chest felt tight, the breastplate of her armor restricting her breathing like someone was sitting on her. She suddenly remembered where she was and tried to sit up, her head throbbing painfully from where she hit the ground. Kiera felt a nose nudge her shoulder, glancing up to meet Kyuubi's worry-filled blue eyes. She had only passed out twice before this, and both times resulted in her becoming severely sick, with only him to rely on as help. This time she had stayed unresponsive for the entire aftern
