This is my first fanfic, I wanted to if I can be good writer so I am writing fanfics to practice. Please don't get mad at me for making the characters a little OOC. Rukia will participate in the ring conflict, so a new ring will be created. Don't be angry.

This is a crossover from Bleach to KHR

Also you should already know, but I do not own KHR or Bleach, I wish I did but I don't, give the creators their hard earned credit.

Summary: Rukia is trying to run away from her brother and her old life. She feels like she can't trust again, but that changes when she goes to Namimori middle. Suddenly, she joins the same thing that she is trying to run away from.

Chapter 1: New beginning

Rukia sat up in her bed slowly, brushing back her messy hair with her fingers. She threw back the covers and walked over to her closet, changed, and went to the kitchen to get her breakfast. Cereal tumbled into a shining bowl, and Rukia sighed.

"I hope I can get away from my old life… if only for a little while."

As she ate, she thought about her old life. There were guns, and so many weapons, so many losses, and deaths, too. She told her older brother, the boss of the Kuchiki family, that she didn't want to kill anymore, that she didn't want to cause any more deaths, and that she didn't want to cause any more pain, but the only thing that came from that was the deaths of her friends. She couldn't stand it anymore, and she ran, ran from her old life to try to start a new one. She decided to attend a normal middle school to distract herself from her problems.

Rukia snapped out of her memories and dumped her bowl into the sink. It was the first day of school for her, and she didn't want to be late. She ran out the apartment and slammed the door behind her, making sure to lock it and started running to get to the school.

"VOOOH!" yelled a voice, making Rukia stop and turn to look for the source of the sound. A half-naked boy thundered past her, a ferocious expression on his face, screaming at the top of his lungs. "I'm going to confess to Kyoko with my dying will!!"

"Wh-what the hell was that?!" Rukia said, staring after the half-naked boy. She shook her head and told herself to forget it, reminding herself not to get attached to anyone, because that would just result in more and more pain in the end.

'Besides,' she thought, 'I don't want to get involved with a guy like that!'

Rukia felt nervous as she got closer and closer to the school and her heart pounded as she read the pale yellow sign that read: Nanimori Chuu. She breathed in, intoxicated with the scent of sakura, and she looked up at the clear blue sky, dotted with peaceful, aloof clouds. She stood like that for a minute, until a scream ripped through her thoughts.

The scream belonged to a girl and Rukia saw the same boy she had seen just a few minutes ago.

"Hey!" Rukia called out to the kid. "Are you okay? Why are you in your underwear?"

The spiky-haired brunette looked at Rukia and blushed crimson. She stared at him, thinking, 'I can't believe there's someone shorter than me…'

"Oi, lame-ass Tsuna!"

A small baby appeared before the half-naked boy and held out a fresh set of clothes for him. Rukia stared at the baby for a while, thinking that the baby's face looked oddly familiar. A green chameleon sat on the rim of the child's fedora, further adding to her suspicions, but what made everything click was the yellow pacifier that dangled from his neck.

"Reborn!" 'Tsuna' cried, "What did you do to me?!"

Oh, no! It's the one with the yellow pacifier; Reborn! Nii-sama must have sent him to get me. What am I going to do? I have to escape!

Rukia dashed away towards the school, leaving behind Tsuna and Reborn. She stopped when she saw a tall black-haired man, who had a cloth labeled disciplinary committee pinned to his sleeve. On his face was an expression that could match even the wolves of the wild.

Rukia shivered, thinking, He's scary… I should avoid him when I can…


As soon as Rukia found her first class, she sat down in a random desk. Laughter filled the room, and she looked up, surprised at the sight of the person she wanted to see the least.

"Here comes underwearman!" one of the students jeered.

"Please go out with me!" mocked another. "What a loser."

"Confession of love," sang a guy.

"He's going to get dumped for sure," a girl scoffed.

"Mochida wants to avenge your honor with a kendo match," Rukia overheard a black-haired girl say to an uncomfortable orange-haired one.


It was lunch, and Rukia, wanting to get away from everything, found her way up to the rooftop, where she found Tsuna sitting by himself.

"Hi," Rukia greeted, as Tsuna turned to her. "I'm Kuchiki Rukia. I know you're Sawada Tsunayoshi, the underwear man. What are you doing here by yourself?"

"I eat lunch by myself every day," Tsuna said, frowning a little. "I've gotten used to it."

"Oh," Rukia said. She wanted to ask the boy so many questions, about Reborn, about why the Arcobaleno was there… but she didn't, because she wanted to forget everything. "Well… can I eat with you?"

Tsuna looked at Rukia in surprise. 'She… wants to eat with me… that's a first. No one wants to be friends with no-good Tsuna.' Tsuna smiled and said, "Sure, why not?"

She sat next to him and for a while, there was just silence. "So, Sawada-san, are you going to go fight this Mochida guy?"

"No…" Tsuna said vehemently. "I'm not strong enough…"

"Tsuna-san… can I call you that?" Tsuna nodded and she continued. "Tsuna-san, you can't just run away… you've got to face things head on. If your heart is in the right place, then it won't matter if you win or lose.

'Although running is what I'm doing myself. Oh well, anything to make him feel better.'

"I guess you're right, Kuchiki-san. I should just try my best."

"Rukia is fine," she said.

"Okay, Rukia-san," Tsuna said, with a gentle and warm smile on his face.


As they arrived at the gym, Rukia couldn't help but wonder why this duel even started. She didn't understand why this was happening. She supposed it was for that girl, Kyoko, to avenge her.

"The price is Kyoko," said the older senpai. He was already ready, wearing a kendo outfit.

"Price?" cried the orange-haired girl indignantly.

'What the hell? I want to beat the crap out of him!' Rukia snarled in her mind. 'Who does he think he is, treating women like they're trophies?!' Rukia stepped forward, but reconsidered her situation and decided against it.

Mochida attacked Tsuna, who ran away from him, trying not to get hit. This went on for a while, Tsuna too scared to do anything, and Mochida jeering and swiping at him.

A gunshot rang out through the gym and a bullet imbedded itself into the middle of Tsuna's forehead. An orange flame shot up from that spot, and immediately…


Rukia had seen this before, and so, she wasn't as surprised as everyone else in the gym. Tsuna leaped at Mochida, knocking him over, and started ripping away at Mochida's hair, handful after handful. The referee raised his flag frantically, just as Tsuna pulled the last of Mochida's hair out of his skull.

There was silence in the gym for a moment as everyone gaped in shock, then…

"Way to go, Tsuna!" Rukia cheered. Immediately, the rest cheered for Tsuna, too.

"You were amazing, Sawada-san!" Rukia said, as Tsuna walked dazedly over to her.

"Can I call you Tsuna-kun instead?" Kyoko said, coming over as well. Tsuna nodded and she went on, "I don't think I introduced myself; I'm Sasagawa Kyoko, nice to meet you!"

Rukia just stared at Kyoko with wide eyes. 'She looks just like her… But, does this mean I can't run away from my problems?'

"Kuchiki-san, are you alright?"

"Oh," Rukia said uneasily, snapping out of her thoughts. "Call me Rukia, and I'll call you Kyoko-chan." Kyoko nodded happily. "This'll be an enjoyable year!"

"Well," Kyoko said, smiling again. "See you later, Tsuna-kun, Rukia-san!"

Rukia glanced at Tsuna, seeing his foolish expression as Kyoko walked away. It was love, just love and Rukia smiled a twisted smile at the sight of him.


The rest of the day was great. The only thing that bothered Rukia was that Kyoko reminded her too much of her old best friend, Orihime, who had passed away.

Rukia walked home by herself and entered her apartment. She spent some hours dawdling around, doing her homework and such before it got dark. She entered her bedroom and looked out the window at the starry night, ready to go to bed. From her apartment, she could see most of the city; the lights, the buildings, the cars. She smiled as she changed in the dark and flopped onto her bed.

"Good night, Orihime…" she said under her breath. "I'll be free from my brother one day, so now I should enjoy my time here with Tsuna. Keep watch over him while you're up there… thank you… for everything."

She closed her eyes and as she wondered what would happen the next day, she drifted off into a deep sleep.
