    Default Episode 19: A double date! Affection in the Espada? [BleachitP]

    ((This presents the double date between Liz & Takeshi + Carcharadon & Mia, as arranged by Liz.))

    The wind blows through the trees; the crash of waves from the cliff below can be heard; the moon hangs high in the sky. Liz presents the moderately-sized building in front of her and the others; The Poltergeist. This establishment, unknown to mortals, but well-known among spirits, is known to only serve the latter crowd. It was apparently built upon an abandoned mineshaft where the miners starved to death after a rockslide, and the owners, who could see spirits, decided to make an odd business out of feeding them. Which apparently also slowed (or stopped?) their descent into Hollows. Eventually, Shinigami came across the place, and ever since then the word had only spread.

    "So, shall we?" Liz smiles. She's wearing a red dress, her now short hair cleaned up by Sandra.

    Carcharadon is looking uncomfortable. Somehow, he has been squeezed into a full white tuxedo, although who on earth made an outfit that big is probably not a matter worth investigating. The white tuxedo has a thorny red rose pushed through one buttonhole.

    Looks nice, says Carcharadon cautiously, glancing to Mia.

    Mia herself wears a variation on her usual uniform, a sort of formal dress. Think Orihime's Arrancar uniform, but with the sleeves and choking collar removed. She slides her arm to entwine with Carcharadon's own, smiling up at him. "I hope the kitchen is well-stocked."

    Carcharadon scratches his head, looking pleased and embarrassed.

    If this place caters to spirits, I'm sure it's used to how hungry Hollows can be... he mumbles.

    Liz nods. "Indeed. There might be Shinigami here, as well... But the owner is strong enough that he stops any fights that break out. He's a friend, so we might be able to get some special treatment." She puts an arm around Takeshi's, running her fingers through his. "He owes me a favor or two, so think of it as being 'on me'." She smiles.

    Just for fun, Takeshi is wearing a black suit. He, in fact, looks perfectly comfortable in it. I had no idea somwhere like this existed. This is actually quite interesting.

    Of course, comparing how much income he gets from respective types of spirits would be facinating.

    "It's mostly the Shinigami that pay... He puts the spirits who cannot pay to work in the mines. But... as I said, he's a friend. Just try not to make him angry." Liz chuckles a little, and starts leading the group inside. The maître d' makes a familiar nod and smile to Elizabeth.

    "Important date, Mademoiselle?"

    The lady arrancar blushes a little. "Um... You could say that." She nods back at Carcharadon and Mia. "They are with me."

    "Indeed. I shall lead you to a table, and inform Monsieur Yuudai." He leads them through the restaurant, which is filled with spirits of all kinds. A few soul reapers are spotted, but they give nothing less than a glance to the Arrancar. The room is elegant, with paintings and high-class tableware and other exquisite decorations. They eventually reach a table seemingly meant for about six separate from the others in the back, and the waiters bring out a chair suitable for Carcharadon's stature. The maître d' bows, and leaves the group to themselves.

    Liz has a seat, and motions to the others to do the same. She's smiling. "What do you think?"

    I like the chair, says Carcharadon. Yup, all these exquisite surroundings, and what he is most impressed by is that they have a big-ass chair.

    Mia smirks up at Carcharadon, then reaches to pull out a chair adjacent to his. "A private table... This Yuudai must really owe you, Liz."

    "Let's just say I took care of a few... 'trouble customers' once or twice during my stays in Europe. You know me, I've always had a fascination with the region..." A waiter arrives with a couple bottles of high-class red wine, in buckets of ice.

    "Compliments of Monsieur Yuudai." He sets them down, and another sets out wine glasses.

    "...Very troublesome customers."

    There's a story behind this, isn't there?

    Takeshi pours some of the wine, then takes a sip.

    A very good story.

    Carcharadon sips his wine, trying desperately to look Cultured with a capital C. Sadly, he has stuffed his napkin down the top of his shirt like a builder rather than folding it across his knees.

    Oh, and also, he's drinking the wine directly from the bottle.

    But dammit, he's trying.

    Liz, assuming Takeshi was a gentleman and decided to pour her wine as well, takes a sip from her glass. "Well... There were these rowdy british soul reapers that intimidated any other parties from coming here... A couple hollows on the road that ate the lost souls that provide business to this place... He didn't do anything because he was still getting business and they weren't starting fights... But I set them straight. Not to mention occasionally clearing up the mines for him occasionally... The place is like a maze, there's all kinds of things crawling down there... And it's the main way he keeps the place running. There's an elevator down to a natural port that he uses to transport their 'materials'." She sighs, reminiscing a bit. "I believe I knew him as a Shinigami as well, though he might have just thought me a coincidence. It might explain why he was so kind to me when we first met..."

    The British Soul Reapers are idiots quite a bit of the time. The French ones, for some reason, are always quite charming.

    Mia folds her napkin across her lap, smirking at Carcharadon as he drinks straight from the bottle. She holds the neck of her wineglass with the tips of her fingers, giving him a teasing look before reaching out to pour herself some wine.

    Liz nods, taking another sip. "Mmm, indeed. I have come across quite a few. Of either. It seems there are just a few decent ones in the former, at least."

    A large, muscular man almost equal to Carcharadon in stature steps up to the table. His arms are comparable to tree trunks, his torso built like a tank. His hair is short and gray, and he has a long braided moustache and pointed goatee. Behind his back is a large meat cleaver that looks like it could probably behead someone if put to the task. "How're you doin', Liz? See you brought some friends. As long as they don't cause any trouble, they're welcome in my house." His voice is deep and a little intimidating, though he's taking a kind expression to the group. He pats Carcharadon and Takeshi strongly on the back. Almost super-humanly strong. "Tachibana Yuudai. What can I get you folks?"

    Carcharadon hides his satisfaction that the man is only almost equal to him in stature.

    I'm Carcharadon Drakefast, he murmurs. I'll have whatever you've got, as long as it's made of meat. I like fish best of all.

    "Mia von Geister, and I'm in the mood for... You have any squid?" Mia will give the group a glance over for strange looks from those who aren't familiar with the eating habits of giant squids.

    "Sure thing, little lady. If you can find it in the sea, we serve it here."

    Liz looks up to Yuudai. "Why don't you surprise the rest of us?"

    "...I thought something was different about you. Cut your hair, eh? Longer hair suits you better, but who am I ta judge? I'll do just that, then. And I'll be sure to make enough to make big man here full." He throws a wide grin at Carcharadon, then presumably walks off to the kitchen. Where he then bellows something to his staff.

    "You won't be disappointed." Liz says with a grin to Carcharadon.

    I'm sure I won't be, says Carcharadon. I, uh, I don't care what the food's like, you know? For a man of my size I don't eat much, though I do enjoy it. What I'm trying to say is, it's not the food, I guess... It's the company. And I know for a fact that that's going to be good. He glances at Mia, and then looks down at his hands folded in his lap.

    Mia dabs her lips after having sipped her wine. Definitely not trying to hide her cheeks reddening for reasons unrelated to the aforementioned wine.

    Liz chuckles a little. "Indeed." She takes another sip of wine. "...Before we are decidedly busy with our meals, I would just like to say, there are reasons other than this that I brought you here, but, out of curiosity, which candidate do our esteemed Takeshi and Carcharadon intend on voting for in the race for the position of Octava Espada?" She indeed looks curious.

    At the question, Mia gently nudges Carcharadon's foot and nods her head toward Liz. She'd be subtle about it, but her squidbone mask fragment tends to exaggerate such motion.

    Carcharadon looks at Mia in surprise, then back at Liz.

    Um, you, Liz, he says, sounding confused. Who else? I haven't even really spoken to the other guy yet. Alejandro's Fraccion, am I right?

    Yeah, of course I'm voting for you. If Mia was running it'd be a different story, but she's quite content where she is.

    "Actually, I was hoping you would vote for Kinezumi." Liz allows a small period for double-takes. "As I understand from my contacts, Aritza considers himself the man for the job. Who would I be to curb his ego? It's only the Octava, after all. Why not indulge his ego? It pains me to think this way, but it is likely that the rest of our brothers will likely not... stay Espada..." She sighs, obviously alluding to something other than losing rank. "So, by indulging his ego and letting myself be known as an indirect supporter, if another position opens up, possibly one higher up the ranks... I have gained another supporter through manipulating his ego. And you all know that despite my new found ambition that I have nothing but respect for all of you, and that I... only wish to take a position as an Espada to better protect our family. Ultimately, it is up to you, and I will not blame you if you disagree."

    "Besides, he is smug enough that he could stand to have his manipulation turned against him."

    I intend to vote for you, Liz. Quite apart from my relationships with you, I honestly believe you are the best candidate.
