The custody official looked over her desk at the boy standing between the two police officers. He was short, with spiky white hair and sea-green eyes. He had several bandages on his face, and his clothes were torn and bloody.

"What's your name?" the woman asked.

"Hitsugaya Toshiro," he answered quietly.

"Do you have any living relations?" she asked kindly.

The boy shook his head.

"We'll see what's in your file then," the woman said cheerfully. She turned to the police officers who'd brought the boy to the Custody Office in the first place. "Take him to the waiting room while I see if I can find a guardian."

The two police officers nodded in unison. "Yes, ma'am. Come along, little boy."

"I'm NOT a little boy!" the child growled while the two officers lead him away.

The official smiled sadly and turned to her computer. She typed in the boy's name and let the computer search for his file. When it popped up, she opened it. Scanning it, the woman spotted a number and address from the neighboring city of Seireitei.

She picked up the phone on her desk and made a call.

The phone rang jarringly; Ukitake Jushiro looked up from where he was typing at his computer in his office and grabbed the device. He was expecting a call from his publisher in Karakura, but the caller ID was from Rukongai.

"Moshi moshi, Ukitake Jushiro." He listened to the voice on the other end and his eyes grow wide. "Of course. I'll be there as soon as I can."

He stood and grabbed his keys, wallet, shoes and coat and hurried out the door, dialing a number on his cell phone as he went.

"Hey, Retsu? Yeah, something came up and I can't make it to our date tonight."

I hope you enjoyed the prologue for my story. I think its one of my better works, and it will (hopefully) be updated regularly. Those of you who read regularly know that I almost NEVER update on schedule, so please be patient with me. :)

This chapter (and story) was/is being beta'd by the lovely beta Desert(dot)Moon. Check her out, her and her Gaara obsession. xD

Also, expect a UkiUno fic up sometime in the near future, as she's making me write one for what Ukitake's last line is. xD I have a a plot bunny for it too!!!
