Byakuya, Captain of the Fifth Division, stood before a former lover. Unmoving and apparently uncaring, his eyes wouldn't stray from Akane as he heard the young woman snap her comment out. "You've been found guilty of crimes against Soul Society," Byakuya said, emotionless. He couldn't let emotion get in the way of his judgement or his honor. The cost was too high. "Renji, is that the one you believe assisted Rukia and yourself previously?" Renji took a moment to turn from his captain to regard the younger woman. Her reiatsu wasn't as high as it had been before, but it felt the same.
"Yes, Captain Kuchiki," Renji replied formally. Personally he thought Byakuya had a stick up his ass, but Renji respected the man greatly. "Her reiatsu is weaker, but it has the same feeling. I would attribute it being lessened due to her not being in her shinigami form." Byakuya still did not look at the other, younger woman. His responsibility lay primarily with Akane. "You will return to Soul Society, Yamayaki. You must be dealt with according to the law. I have no sympathy, nor will you get leniency from me. Please do not resist."
Since the captain seemed to have Akane under control, relatively speaking, Renji turned to look at the young woman. She was a shinigami? At such a young age? He wondered how much talent she had. Then again, given the lineage, she might be a fierce little thing. It had Renji giving off his usual smirk.
