Well, wouldn't ya know it... I ask Kuchiki Taichou what he wants me ta do about th' Kido Messenger bein' late ta pick up the Dragon Arrow. First, he sighs all dramatic in my ear, and then he hauls me back ta Okayama as fast as I can go. Shunpo speed, he tells me. Can't even get a sec ta let Ichigo and them know I'm headin' out.
