The New Captain of Squad 5
It has been nearly 2 years since that fateful day when Vegeta arrived at the Soul Society and the fight with his brother, Coge. Now the saiyan prince was the second lieutenant to Squad 10, serving along side lieutenant Rangiku Matsumoto although he hardly took orders from her. But there was one squad member that he obeyed down to the last detail. That was Squad 10's Captain Toushiro Hitsugaya, the child prodigy that saved the saiyans life from the harsh laws of the Soul Society. Thanks to Vegeta, Toushiro's life was forever changed. The young captain was once one of the sternest soul reapers around, but then Vegeta appeared on the scene and soon found himself smiling and laughing more. Whenever he had free time, Toushiro would spend it with Vegeta either training or just messing around. A common sight around the 10th division was the saiyan running around with the captain on his back. Even though he would never say it, Hitsugaya was indeed a kid and being a kid he was light so Vegeta had no trouble carrying him around. The sight was so common in fact, that nearly all of squad 10's members would stand outside and watch. They even built an obstacle course for the two. Although he was classed as a soul reaper, Vegeta wasn't a soul but a living being making him the talk of all the Soul Society and after he took down an Arrancar by brute strength alone, he was also called a legend. It was because of this that the saiyan prince was aloud to attend captains meetings via special request from Head-Captain Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto himself, despite being a lieutenant. Vegeta found the meetings somewhat boring at times, however today was an exception. Since Sosuke Aizen, Gin Ichimaru and Kaname Tosen had betrayed the Soul Society, Squads 3, 5 and 9 have been without a captain for some time. Today, however, was going to change that as all the captains and Vegeta were assembled to meet Squad 5's new captain, Rosa Unridge. She was a small woman, only 5 inches shorter than Vegeta when he stands up strait on his back legs, balky with curly brown hair. She didn't seem like much but there was a few things about her that, well, crept everyone out a little. It was that she spook very nicely, to the point where it was scary, and that she was obsessed with the color pink... To an extreme level.
Toushiro: (Whispering to Vegeta) "Bet you anything that everything she owns is pink."
Vegeta: (Whispering back) "Bet you anything that she requested her captains haori to be pink."
Yamamoto finished introducing Unridge to the captains. Then she walked in front of him and began to speak to her fellow captains.
Unridge: "Thank you. It's wonderful that you would make me apart of this wonderful team and I'm sure we're all going to be very good friends. *Giggle*"
It was then that all of the captains started to look at her in a weird way. Yamamoto actually opened his eyes. Soifon had a disgusted look on her face. Unohana just looked at her with a somewhat surprised expression. Byakuya had the same look as Soifon. Komamura looked like he was going to be sick. Shunsui and Ukitake's expressions where similar to both Unohana's and Komamura's looks. Toushiro had a blank look and so did Zaraki and Kurotsuchi. They were all crept out by the new captain. It was Vegeta, however, who made it known.
Vegeta: "Shoot me."
All eyes turned to the saiyan next to Toushiro. Unridge kept her massive smile but her eyes widened.
Unridge: "Excuse me?!"
Vegeta: "You heard me! Go on, hit me! Right here between my eyes! Go ahead, I'm begging it!"
Vegeta's comments had everyone, but Unridge and himself, trying their best to hold back their laughter. Some were holding a hand to their mouth like Toushiro, Kurotsuchi, Unohana, Yamamoto and Soifon while the rest were holding their heads low or off to the side as they bit down on their lip. Unridge was unaware of this.
Unridge: "I will do no such thing. Violence is such an ugly thing."
Vegeta: "Ok, two things! One: violence isn't the ugliest thing that's out there, believe me I know, and two which is the most important... I'VE SEEN BUTTERFLIES WITH MORE GUTS THAN YOU!!!"
That sent all of the captains into a frenzy of laughter. Unridge seemed horrified and tried to make a comeback, with little success.
Unridge: "Well... I see that you're wearing a lieutenants badge! So why are you here?!"
Toushiro: "He's with me... Ha ha heh heh! He's got spe- haha haha- special privileges!"
Vegeta: "There's your answer, freaky pinky!"
If any of the captains had settled down, they soon started laughing again. Even Yamamoto, Byakuya and Soifon couldn't control themselves. Poor Toushiro was laughing so hard that he couldn't stay standing. Unridge was so angry that she stormed out in a rage. Since Unridge left and no one could seem to stop laughing, the meeting was dismissed and all of the captains headed back to their divisions. Toushiro and Vegeta were the last to reach their division as the young captain had to stop every now and then to keep himself from falling, until Vegeta finally pulled his captain onto his back. By the time they just outside the office, the child prodigy had finally gotten himself under control and slid off of Vegeta's back.
Toushiro: "Wonder if Rangiku did her paperwork?"
Vegeta: "Let's find out."
Vegeta slid open the door and peered inside. What he saw was unexpected.
Vegeta: "Well the paperwork isn't done but Rangiku's got a good excuse this time."
Toushiro: "I'll believe it when I see it now move over Vegeta!"
The young boy pushed and shoved at Vegeta's side.
Toushiro: "Let me through, you big lummox!"
Vegeta: "Who are you calling a lummox when your the one who couldn't seem to walk strait on the way here."
The young captain continued to push and shove until he was finally able to squeeze past the doorway and his second lieutenant, falling on the floor. After getting up and brushing himself off, the boy genius straitened his clothes. Now that he was finally in his office, Toushiro could start on the paperwork that Rangiku failed to do. But he only took two steps to his desk before he stopped and eyed the couch in complete surprise. Rangiku was sitting on the couch with tea and snacks... And she wasn't alone.
Rangiku: "There you are captain! Look who came over to visit!"
Siting on the couch across from Rangiku with a tired but delighted expression was...
It was Momo Hinamori, Toushiro Hitsugaya's childhood and closest friend. Momo was Squad 5's lieutenant and had been in a coma ever since her captain, Sosuke Aizen, nearly killed her and Toushiro before he left to Hueco Mundo. Although she saw Aizen stab her, she still thinks that he's a good guy. Toushiro and Momo were very close, almost like brother and sister, and he is overly protective of her despite the fact that he was younger. So it came as a shock to Toushiro to find Momo awake and sitting in his office. The captains shock didn't go unnoticed by a certain lieutenant.
Vegeta: "Hmmm..." *This just got interesting.*
Momo: "Hi Toushiro."
Toushiro: "Momo you're... You're awake! When did you-"
Momo: "Just last night. I was on my way here when I heard that you have a second lieutenant, who is she?"
When it came to the looks department, a lot of girls viewed Toushiro as one of the most handsome or cutest soul reapers around. So it was understandable that Momo thought his new lieutenant was a girl. She couldn't have been more wrong even if she tried.
Rangiku: "We do have another lieutenant, but HE'S no girl."
Toushiro: 'Momo, I'd like you to meet my second lieutenant and the talk of the entire Soul Society... Vegeta, the saiyan prince."
Toushiro bowed down to introduce Vegeta as the saiyan walked up to the young girl.
Vegeta: "Cut the acting Toushiro, its horrible."
Toushiro: "Bite me, Vegeta."
Vegeta: "I can arrange that, CAPTAIN!"
Toushiro: "Try it, LIEUTENANT!"
Rangiku started laughing at them. Momo, however, was a little worried at their behavior until Rangiku reassured her that it happened all the time.
Rangiku: "He may not act like he would right now but believe me, Vegeta would defend the captain with his very life in the blink of an eye when push comes to shove."
Momo smiled when she heard that Vegeta was a loyal defender. The attention went back to the arguing.
Vegeta: "That's it, isn't it?! You're trying to act like a big, mature man in front of Momo huh..."
Toushiro: "What are you saying, Vegeta?!"
Vegeta: "Think about it..."
Toushiro paused for a moment, thinking. Then his eyes went wide and he got enraged as he started to blush when he realized what the saiyan was saying.
Toushiro: "YOU GUTTER-BRAIN SAIYAN!"
Vegeta: "HAHA HAHA! THAT'S A GOOD SHADE OF RED FOR YOU TOO!! HAHA HAHAHA!!!!!"
The young captain left the saiyan prince to his fit of laughter and walked up to Momo who was finding Vegeta's fun a little amusing herself. He managed to get his blushing under control just as he sat down next to her.
Toushiro: "Rangiku, could I have a few minutes alone with Momo please. It's been awhile since I last spoke to her... And take him with you!"
Rangiku: "Sure thing, captain. Come on Vegeta, you can help me do the paperwork!"
Vegeta: "Help my ass! You'll just sit somewhere to drink or doze off and leave me to do the whole damn mountain of files!"
Rangiku: "No I won't!"
Vegeta: "Yes you will!"
Rangiku: "No I won't!"
Vegeta: "Yes you will!"
The two lieutenants picked up the mountain of papers and went to the next room while still argued, leaving Toushiro and Momo alone.
Momo: "He seems nice."
Toushiro: "I wouldn't go that far but what Rangiku said was right. If push comes to shove, Vegeta would defend me and almost anyone else with his life."
Momo: "You called him a 'saiyan'. What's that?"
Toushiro: "Saiyans are a powerful warrior race with abnormally high levels of strength, speed and unique abilities. They have the appearance of an ordinary human but they all share a few things in common that differ from humans and that is that all saiyans have jet black hair that is always spiky and never changes. Another difference is that they are more muscularly built and that they are all born with tails. Each saiyan has an unique ability or abilities that defines them like our Zanpakutos. They use their strength and energy to attack and defend themselves. This 'energy' is similar to spiritual pressure but it's created from within them and can be harnessed into these amazing beams of colored light that can destroy many things. Even Hollows can be destroyed by them, I've seen it first hand."
Momo: "Really? How?"
Toushiro: "Well to tell you that I need to tell you how I met Vegeta."
So Toushiro told Momo the whole story from the very beginning. She was amazed at what had happened and what Vegeta was capable of doing.
Toushiro: "To this day I swear Zaraki shivers whenever he sees Vegeta."
Momo: "That's incredible! I never thought captain Zaraki would be beaten so badly!"
Toushiro: "I'll say. ... ... Momo... Squad 5 has... Has a new captain."
The child prodigy didn't want to tell his childhood friend the news since she admired Aizen so much before he betrayed them. Aizen was the whole reason she worked as hard as she did just so she could be near him. But Toushiro felt he had to tell her, otherwise Momo was likely to find out the hard way and get very upset by it. Indeed she got very upset by the news.
Momo: "Wh-What?! A new captain but... But what about captain Aizen?! He's the captain!"
Toushiro: "Momo... I'm sorry but... The captain Aizen you know is gone. He betrayed us and-"
Momo: "No he didn't!"
Vegeta: "Excuse me."
The two looked up is surprise to find Vegeta standing in the doorway.
