Zhou laughed as he finally took a few steps back, ensuring that any further attacks would be safely avoided. His reiatsu dropped as he let the lightning dissipate, sealing his zanpaktou into its normal state once more. "That would be what your father does," Zhou said. "Senbonzakura is your father's zanpaktou. When he issues the word 'Scatter', it will separate into thousands of blossom petals. It's a very powerful offensive and defensive weapon. I'm wondering if yours is similar. You have to control it with your mind, though. Practice more."
Zhou grinned, and would look at the various cuts and nicks he developed from the attack. None were life threatening, but that didn't mean it didn't hurt. "Just practice it on some rocks for a while, eh? I think I need to get some rest and some healing done." He chuckled as he would stagger slightly before walking away. He'd taken a lot of wounds on purpose, to have her see, firsthand, what may have to be done.
