Chapter 3

It has been four years since the day Naruto had met rangiku and entered the academy and lets just say he likes this academy better than the ninja academy because over here he has fan girls, but Rangiku takes care of that and best of all he is known as a prodigy: his Zanjutsu, Hand- To- Hand Combat are the best in the whole class, but his kido wasn't that good due to his high spiritual energy, but he's still working on it and his shunpo is really good ( hes a little bit slower than Ichigo in his bankai). The most interesting part of being in the academy was meeting Gin Ichimaru Rangiku's childhood friend.

He is a male with silver hair and a never ending grin on his face. His eyes are always closed, which Naruto somehow detested. He was wearing standard Shinigami clothing, with a seated officer badge. He was part of the Third division.

Now we find our blond hero laying against a tree branch enjoying the peacefulness of the birds chirping, the wind blowing against his hair, and the best of all the sun setting , but all good things must come to an end.

"Naruto-kun"

"Rangiku-chan, what are you doing here?" Naruto said with confusion in his voice.

"Don't tell me you forgot, today is the we get out zanpokutou" replied a rather annoyed Rangiku.

Realization finally came to the blonde haired teenager and Rangiku is right today is the day everyone gets their zanpokutou, so he jumped off the tree branch he was lying on, grabbed Rangiku's hand and sped off towards the academy.

Academy

Everyone of his classmates were all called to get their zanpokutou Rangiku already got hers and shes been talking about it ever sense. Her zanpokutou's form is that of a straight-bladed katana. The tsuba is in the shape of a cat's head, with two triangles on the top half curving into ear-points and the bottom half tapering down into a single point. It has a dark red handle. She keeps it clipped behind her waist obi.

"Naruto Namikaze." finally it was his turn. After Rangiku wished him good luck he went down a couple of stairs before opening a door and stepping in. In that door was the whole Gotei thirteen was there.

"Naruto Namikaze will you please step into the center of the seal and sit down." ordered Yamamoto.

He did what he was told and sat down,while he was sitting down he saw that they were all saying some sort of kido spell before slamming their palms onto the ground. From their on all he saw was black.

Naruto's Mind

"Ugh where am I?" a sleepy Naruto said sitting up only to hear giggling.

"Your inside your mind." said a female voice. Opening his eyes he is greeted by a woman with silky smooth black hair that reaches to her butt, soft black eyes, wearing a a white yukata with black flames licking the bottom of it. The yukata is also opened a little bit on the top showing a little bit of cleavage from her C-cup breast with a heart shaped face.

Getting a hold of his bearing Naruto finally gets a good place of where he woke up at. Soft grass laying on the floor swaying in the breeze of the wind, clear blue sky with a couple of clouds floating by and a waterfall cascading in a stream.

"Beautiful." Naruto says awe in his voice.

"It should be beautiful this is your mind of coarse" said the woman still giggling.

"Wait so if what your saying is true does that mean that this is my mind and your my zanpokutou" said a surprised Naruto

"Well of coarse" said the woman

"Well could you tell me your name."

"Okay, I'll tell you my name is-"

"I'm sorry could you say it again I couldn't hear you." Naruto said cupping his hand around his ear.

"I see, it looks like your not ready to hear my name yet, but don't worry in time you will be, so this is good bye for now."

Before Naruto could say anything he was already gone.

Real world

Opening his eyes he finds himself in the same place before, but only to feel something on his lap. Looking down he came face to face with his zanpokutou. It has a circular bronze hand guard with a stripped design on it and a black handle and sheath and a 42 inch blade.

Finally getting a hold of himself he gets up and walks out the door with his zanpokutou on his waist ready to show Rangiku it.
