Rukia was asleep in her room when she started to get a horrible nightmare! It was one of the strangest, yet very scary dreams she ever had! What could possibly be scary for this cold Soul Reaper?
It was the ATTACK OF THE KILLER BUNNIES!
She was in a meadow, with cute, furry rabbits all around. She was in Happy Bunny heaven! Then she started to notice something odd. The rabbit's teeth started growing at an alarming rate. At first, she let it go, still in a happy bunny place. That is, until the rabbits started BITING her!
"Ow! Why are you biting me, Mr. Floppy-ears?!" asked Rukia. She looked down in shock as her dress had gone from springtime-floral to Soul Reaper! Her Zanpaku-to was at her side.
"What…what's going on? What's happening?!" she said confused.
"Welcome, Shinigami, to Hueco Mundo…" said the largest rabbit.
"Who…who are you? Why am I here?!"
"I am…Menos Grande, and you little Soul Reaper, have trespassed into OUR territory! Now you shall suffer the consequences!" laughed the evil Menos-Rabbit.
A certain orange-haired Soul Reaper with a ridiculously sized Soul Slayer appeared out of nowhere at Rukia's side.
"Ichigo!" she exclaimed.
"Wha…?!" said Rukia as her happy reunion quickly turned into a horrible daze.
Ichigo went from Soul Reaper comrade to Vizard horror before her eyes!
"No…no this can't be happening! SOMEONE, ANYONE, PLEASE WAKE ME UP FROM THIS NIGHTMARE!"
Byakuya was taking a stroll down the corridor outside Rukia's room when he heard her tossing and turning, as if she was having a nightmare! He silently walks up to her room, noticing that she left the door open for the fresh air to ventilate through the room. He is slightly shocked to see her violently shaking from fear even though she is fast asleep.
He would have let her work through it on her own if he hadn't heard her mumble the words "Hollow" and "Ichigo".
He enters the room and gently shakes her. She doesn't wake at first, so he is forced to shake her a little harder. Still no response; Byakuya starts to become worried.
"Rukia, wake up. You're having a bad dream," he says gently.
