Chapter 30: 30
Wisps of light flew before Rey's eyes as his vision changed . Vibrant trees and flowers lined his view . In front of him was Aizen, Riza, and princess Yu . Rey wished to call out to Riza and Aizen when Soma suddenly broke free .

\"Aizen!\" Rey cried out, but Soma took over his body in that instant . He teleported to Aizen and manipulated gravity just as Rey remembered . 'This isn't real, this isn't real!' Rey felt chills run down his spine as he watched in horror . He wanted to puke, but he couldn't even do that .

'I can't let Aizen die!' Rey's instinct to fight kicked in as he used his willpower and took his control back from Soma . After taking control and sending Soma back to his prison, Rey kicked the princess backward and fled with Aizen and Riza .

'I could have saved them and stopped all of this if I had more power back then . ' Rey felt even worse . 'If only I was stronger… if only I could have protected them . It was possible . ' Biting his lip until it bled, Rey thought he cleared the trial until time rewound and he was standing before Aizen and Riza again .

'I don't understand, I saved them! What else can I do?' Rey's back was drenched in a cold sweat . Looking at Aizen being pulled apart, his face paled and panic overwhelmed him . He pushed out of the prison and kicked Soma back into it, taking control . He killed princess Yu and kept everyone safe, but moments later, he found himself back at the beginning .

Each change he made seemed to be pointless . He killed Soma in one of them, yet that didn't stop the nightmare he faced . He suppressed princess Yu instead of killing her and stayed, but time kept rewinding . Rey knew within his heart that even if he tried to change what occurred that day tens of thousands of times, the result would still be the same . Aizen's death, king Sig'car's rage, the blood he had on his hands, he couldn't accept that reality .

After trying to change his nightmare several hundred times, Rey accepted it and stopped trying to change what couldn't be changed; he decided to focus and let it shape him . Rey gave way for Soma to do as he did in the past, and Aizen was killed before his eyes for the second time . Rey watched and wept, vowing to get his revenge tenfold .

The memory collapsed and Rey appeared back into priest Kioko's office . Tears continued to roll down his eyes .

\"Did you find your instinct to fight ye-\" Rey didn't give him time to finish that sentence and punched him in the stomach . Priest Kioko felt the air leave his body as he hunched over .

\"What the hell was that for‽\" Priest Kioko shouted, \"I'm helping you, brat!\"

\"You asked for my instinct to fight?\" Rey glanced up at him, \"there it is . \" Puzzled, priest Kioko stood blinking at Rey .

\"I see, very well then . \" he felt wronged, 'what kind of disciple punches their master after asking a question‽ Though he did ask and Rey gave him an answer…'

\"What's next in mental training?\"

Coughing once, priest Kioko continued . \"How have you been cultivating so far?\"

Rey felt uneasy, Hibari had told him not to tell anyone of that method otherwise it might bring harm to him . \"I can't tell you… It's a secret . \"

\"Then I'll find out for myself . \"

\"What are you doing?\" Rey instinctively backed away as priest Kioko moved closer .

\"Relax, this won't hurt . \" priest Kioko shoved his hand onto Rey's forehead and tried to force his way into his mind .

\"Weird, your willpower is far stronger than I had imagined . You want me to help? Stop resisting and let me see your consciousness . \"

\"A-alright . Just be gentle . \" Discomfort could be seen all over Rey's face .

'Why does this situation feel so wrong?' Priest Kioko felt reminded of something but disregarded it as he searched through Rey's thoughts .

\"I see… This is intricate, I suppose that Soma or someone like him designed this? Yes? Using your mind like that, converging your inhibited thoughts, establishing a mental connection to your soul, and forcefully uprooting your desires, this is an extremely complex technique . I'm surprised you can even use it right now . \"

\"Are you able to execute this technique too?\"

Priest Kioko looked at Rey strangely, \"I need preparation to use such a technique . \"

\"I see…\" Rey thought more about it, \"So I have greater willpower than you?\"

\"Listen, brat,\" He pointed his finger at Rey, \"there is more to it than just willpower . The things of this world are complex, and it depends on your talent whether you can learn something like that . You must be very talented . \" He nervously laughed, beads of sweat slid off his forehead . \"I can't have my own disciple knowing he can do something his master can't do . \" After thinking about how he phrased it, priest Kioko felt proud of himself . He really was a good, inspiring person!

\"You really can't do it . Does that mean you're talentless?\" Those words drilled into priest Kioko's mind as he almost coughed up blood .

\"You…\" He wanted to say no, but the more he compared Rey's growth compared to his own, he couldn't even refute it! Compared to Rey, who else could learn such a complex technique while only being an adept? He got up and looked out the window . \"Just keep doing what you're doing! And come back tomorrow for more training . \"

When he turned around, Rey had already vanished and left him twitching his eyebrow .

'Damn that kid . ' Priest Kioko thought . After his experience today with disciplining Rey, Priest Kioko felt scammed . 'Who told me having a disciple was easy and a good way to learn more . Who's the disciple here‽' That day, unannounced to everyone else, priest Kioko had a mid-life crisis and decided to quit his job soon and join the frontlines of war .
