It has been some time since I've updated this fic. Sorry about that, school and the other fics had been keeping me away. But I still hope no one has given up on this fic yet!
AnimeLover717216: Yep, definitely screwed but Ichigo is not there! xD But too bad, they still got caught xD
blackteaplease: Ha, everyone managed to piss Toushirou by talking about his height xD Isshin won't be able to catch them in the morning, Yuzu is an early waker xD
HitsuKarin-sama: When I get to the Karakura arc which is about...the next chapter hopefully.
SophieLuv: Thanks. Byakuya shouldn't have mentioned that in front of Toushirou. xD
MaskYourSmile: Impossible, Ichigo is trapped in Hueco Mundo so he won't be lopping Byakuya's head off unless Isshin does something xD
ThunderClaw03: Epic battle that's for sure xD The next Byakuya vs Ichigo will win the Soul Society's version of Byakuya vs Ichigo xD
I do not own Bleach
As usual, Yuzu woke up early in the morning to prepare breakfast. It has already become her daily routine during death and life. She made Byakuya's usual favorite spicy food although it isn't a very good choice to make for breakfast. Soon, they sat down to eat.
"How is it, Kuchiki-sama?" Yuzu asked.
"Delicious as always." Byakuya said.
Isshin grinned, "I see you've already made the first step despite yesterday's conversation." When Isshin received confused looks from them, he took out a picture of Byakuya and Yuzu sleeping together. "I've decided to take it to remember it as my sweet Yuzu's first time!"
"You pervert! How could you come into someone's room while they're sleeping?" Byakuya growled, "And there isn't anything bad about it. We just shared the bed because Yuzu didn't want me to have the closet!"
"I wanted to check up on Yuzu but instead found something better." Isshin grinned, ignoring Byakuya.
"Oooh, can you photocopy it for me Isshin-taichou?" Matsumoto asked.
"Don't you have any sense of shame by asking that? Wait, you never had a sense of shame. Ignore my question." Toushirou said and turned to Byakuya, ignoring Matsumoto's protests. "Kuchiki-taichou, what're you planning to do today?"
Byakuya shrugged, "Go out and look around? You?" Byakuya asked Yuzu.
"I will follow anywhere Kuchiki-sama goes." Yuzu replied.
"I say we go shopping!" Matsumoto exclaimed.
"No." Toushirou said flatly.
"Well, we do need some clothes since we can't wear this everyday." Byakuya said, "How about we buy some clothes first? I don't want to wear the same thing every single day and I'm sure Yuzu doesn't want to either."
"Don't worry, Yuzu's old clothes are still here." Isshin reassured.
"It's still unsafe in case someone from Soul Society might come over here and discover Yuzu's gender and blabber it out. I still don't want my servants to know that Yuzu is posing as a boy as it may cause some bad comments towards us about us breaking our own rules." Byakuya said.
Matsumoto grinned, "Leave the shopping to me!"
Toushirou shook his head, "You are going to regret it, Kuchiki-taichou."
"Why?" Byakuya asked.
Toushirou shook his head, "You'll find out soon enough."
Just as Toushirou said, Byakuya did regret it when he is piled with a truckload worth of shirts and pants with Yuzu carrying two times as much as his. Toushirou smartly stayed away at this time and Matsumoto isn't even done going through half of the stores! Byakuya is already itching to sic Senbonzakura on her.
"Matsumoto, can we stop?" Byakuya asked.
"Of course not! We still have many shops to go."
"Ugh…" Yuzu groaned from the amount of clothes she has to carry. Even the chores she had to do back at the manor aren't as difficult as this. By the looks of it, Yuzu is about to fall over soon.
"Are you alright, Yuzu?" Byakuya asked in worry.
"I-I'm fine." Yuzu gasped.
Byakuya dumped the current shopping bags his has and walked over to Yuzu to grab her arms, spread it out causing the shopping bags she held to fall as well much to Matsumoto and her horror. Byakuya grabbed her hand and walked towards the nearest coffee shop.
"Let's take a break."
"B-But Kuchiki-sama, isn't that a little bit…mean?" Yuzu asked.
"What? You want to carry those around the shopping center when we can just leave them there and get them later? And you are clearly not okay, I can even hear your breathing when I was just a few feet away from you." Byakuya pointed out.
"I'm really okay…I didn't want to become a burden to Kuchiki-sama."
"You'll be much more of a burden if you faint." Byakuya pointed out, "And stop thinking yourself as a burden. I'm more of a burden in this stupid younger self-body. Dammit, just when I get my hands on that fucked up schizoid."
Yuzu laughed, "Don't worry, I'm sure Kuchiki-sama will be able to take him on."
"He'd better not turn me into an infant this time."
"…" Yuzu is thinking of Byakuya as an infant. "I think you would be kind of cute." Yuzu remarked.
Byakuya blushed, "Shut up. I hate being call cute whether or not as an infant or an adult. And you should never call a guy cute." Byakuya said. But somehow, he doesn't mind it when Yuzu calls him cute. It sort of made him feel better.
"Let's sit here." Byakuya said.
"Okay, what would you like to have? I'll go and buy it for you." Yuzu said.
Byakuya shrugged, "Anything is fine since I don't know much about food from these parts."
Yuzu ran off to order food while Byakuya took some time to think about. Yuzu is definitely different from the other servants but yet quite similar to Hisana. Both of them are able to read his personalities like an open book. He dare not say that both of them are short and flat chested in case Hisana comes back to strangle him for that little comment. Rukia and her never did like being called short much less flat chested.
"I'm back." Yuzu placed the food on the table.
"What's this?" Byakuya asked.
"It's called carrot cake and don't worry, I asked the owner to add extra spices." Yuzu smiled.
Byakuya raised an eyebrow. Carrot cake? It doesn't look like a cake to him; it looks more like a squishy substance. But since Yuzu has much more knowledge in this, he decided to trust her and ate it. "Not bad." He said.
"Isn't it?" Yuzu smiled.
Soon, they had finished their food and started to head towards where they dropped the bags. To her surprise, Matsumoto has disappeared despite telling her to wait and he knew Matsumoto would never ignore a taichou's order. Besides, she needed them to do the fitting. Suddenly, Byakuya felt a rush of reiatsu coming from the rooftop and ran towards it with Yuzu in tow.
"Kuchiki-taichou!" Matsumoto, in her shinigami form, shouted when she spotted them.
"You…you're the one from before." Byakuya glared and took out his sword.
Burrito laughed, "You think you can hide her from me? I don't care what you're going to do, I'm going to deliver Kurosaki Ichigo's little sister to Aizen-sama right now!" Burrito announced and sonido-ed over to the two. Byakuya hit him away with his Senbonzakura.
"Like hell you're going to take Yuzu away."
"Didn't you forget my ability?" Burrito grinned.
"Hell no and that's why I'm here to cut you into pieces." Byakuya said, holding his Senbonzakura out. "You're going to regret you ever did that to me! Scatter, Senbonzakura." His sword once again turned into cherry blossoms that rushed over to Burrito.
"AH! Where the hell are you touching?" Yuzu exclaimed when Burrito wrapped his arm around her chest.
Byakuya's eyes widened, "When did he-"
"That was merely a clone, of course. You think I would come here unprepared like last time?" Burrito smirked, "Since I've got the girl now, I'm off to Aizen-sama. See you." Burrito threw a wink and attempted to escape.
"Didn't I say you won't be taking Yuzu away?" Byakuya growled and sent his cherry blossoms towards him. When Burrito held Yuzu in front of him, Byakuya immediately stopped the attack. "You low-life." Byakuya growled.
"Uh, uh, uh. You better not do anything rash if you don't want to hurt this girl."
"Sit upon the frozen heavens, Hyourinmaru!" Toushirou's voice called out and ice began to charge towards him. Since Toushirou is able to control ice, he made the ice stopped before it touches Yuzu, effectively weaken Burrito.
"Shit." Burrito cursed.
Byakuya smirked, "You look like you're having some trouble. I'll be taking Yuzu now if you don't mind." He sent the cherry blossoms towards him and wrapped them around Yuzu's waist, bringing her to him.
"Th-Thank you." Yuzu blushed when she realized how close she is to Byakuya.
"Growl, Haineko." Matsumoto called out, her sword turning into ashes and flew over to Burrito. She swung her sword and slashes are automatically made at Burrito's body.
"Bakudo no. 1 Seal." Toushirou chanted and Burrito immediately stopped moving and fell on the rooftop.
Byakuya smirked and went over to him, stepping his head with his foot. "Are you ready to say your prayers?"
"M-Mercy!" Burrito gasped out.
"Mercy, eh? How about you transforming me back into my older self and we'll see."
Burrito held out his pointer finger and shook it. "Uh, uh, uh. The spell isn't reversible and there won't be any antidote that will help you. This is actually quite similar to Barragan's ability which causes you to get muuuuch older. Of course we've related abilities since I'm his grandson." Burrito said proudly.
A vein popped on Byakuya's head, "There's nothing to be proud about that!" Byakuya took out his Senbonzakura, ready to spear him like a shish kabob.
"Wait, Kuchiki-taichou. Barragan, is he an Espada too?" Toushirou asked.
"Yeah, he's Espada no. 2 and I used to be an Espada." Burrito said.
"Oh yeah, you did say that you were Arrancar 106." Yuzu said, while hiding behind Byakuya.
Byakuya twitched, "You mean I got turned into a kiddy self because of an Arrancar 106? That's a big number! That's it! I'm going to spear you now!" Byakuya held the sword above Burrito's chest and dove the sword towards him until Burrito quickly shifted down so the sword pierced through his hollow hole instead.
"Wait, wait, wait! Surely we can negotiate, right?" Burrito defended.
"Kuchiki-taichou, I think we should hear what he has to say first. It might benefit us." Toushirou said.
Burrito nodded, "Yes, the mini shinigami is right."
Toushirou twitched, "Let's kill him after all."
"Eeek!" Burrito tried to dodge both Byakuya and Toushirou's swords by rolling on the floor. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry! In exchange, I'll tell you ALL about the Espadas and Aizen-sama's purpose of capturing a human girl is to lure Kurosaki Ichigo to Hueco Mundo so he won't be able to come to Karakura town to save it!"
"What?" Toushirou stopped his assault.
"Oops." Burrito covered his mouth.
Toushirou grabbed Burrito's collar, "Spill. What is Aizen planning now? And how would you know all of these?"
"Well, I overheard Aizen-sama talking with my grandfather while I was in my room. I think they didn't know I was there but I heard Aizen-sama talking about trapping Kurosaki Ichigo in Hueco Mundo and tricking Soul Society into thinking he is going to start a war there thus making them strengthen their defenses instead so Aizen-sama can concentrate in invading Karakura town." Burrito explained.
"This is bad, we have to tell Yamamato-soutaichou." Matsumoto said.
"Woot, bigger than Harribel-sama." Burrito gushed and Matsumoto instantly knocked him out.
"So Aizen is targeting Karakura town all along." Byakuya said, "And without the ryoka boy and his sister, most likely he would succeed in whatever he is planning to do here."
"But why here?" Toushirou asked.
Byakuya shrugged, "I don't know. All I've read from the archives is that Karakura town has a massive reiatsu."
Yuzu poked the big screen with purple frame curiously. It's quite a big television compared to what she saw at her old house. Byakuya, Toushirou and Matsumoto decided to tell Yamamato-soutaichou about this immediately.
"So Aizen is targeting Karakura town from the beginning…" Yamamato said.
"And from the information Burrito gave us, the reason of the capture of Inoue Orihime is to lure Kurosaki Ichigo and Karin into Hueco Mundo so they won't be able to return to Karakura town when Aizen invades here." Toushirou said.
"Hmm, Urahara Kisuke, are you willing to go to Hueco Mundo with Kurotsuchi-taichou and bring Kurosaki Ichigo and his sister back here?" Yamamato asked.
Urahara shrugged, "I don't mind but I think Kurotsuchi-taichou is going to throw a fit upon seeing me there." Urahara grinned, thinking of how he is going to enjoy the look on Mayuri's face once he meets him. Oh, he just love making his apprentice angry.
"I shall speak to him later." Yamamato said, "Now that we know Aizen is planning to invade Karakura town, we must find a way to protect it."
"Actually, I have an idea." Urahara said, "We could shift Karakura town outside the Rukongai streets and replace Karakura town with a fake one so we could battle without harming any of the people residing here." Urahara suggested.
"Moving Karakura town? Is it even possible?" Byakuya asked.
Urahara nodded, "It is possible because Karakura town has a massive reiatsu so it may be able to withstand being in Soul Society. Of course, I need the help of the research bearu in order to complete this plan."
"How long will it take?" Yamamato asked.
"I'd estimate around 1 more week."
"One more? You mean, you've been planning this from the beginning?" Toushirou asked.
Urahara nodded, "Yes, I've come to this conclusion when the Arrancar and Espada started to invade Karakura town when Orihime Inoue was here. All I need is the research bearu's a little bit of help and it will be done." Urahara smiled.
"That still leaves Yuzu, will she move along with the real Karakura town?" Byakuya asked.
"That will be her decision alone." Yamamato said.
"Um, I think I will stay here. I've been thinking, if Kurosaki Ichigo and Kurosaki Karin are my siblings, I want to help them as much as I can." Yuzu said.
Byakuya raised an eyebrow, "What're you going to do? You can't fight." He pointed out.
"Actually, Unohana-taichou has already detected potential in her in being a great healer. It is possible to hide her since her reiatsu cannot be discovered easily. We can send the possible injured to her while we battle." Yamamato said, "If that's all, I am going to prepare for the battle. I shall brief you on it after the discussion with the taichous." The screen went black.
"Ryoka boy is going freak once he knew this." Byakuya grumbled, "And I'm not in favor of the idea myself."
"Don't worry about it Kuchiki-taichou, at least you'll fight at your best with Yuzu-chan there." Matsumoto grinned.
Byakuya glared, "What is that suppose to mean?"
"Think about it, protecting your girlfriend gives you more determination to win right?"
"Yuzu is NOT my girlfriend!"
"I never mentioned her name." Matsumoto pointed out.
"You are implying it!" Byakuya pointed a finger at her.
Toushirou sighed, "Kuchiki-taichou, please stop starting a fight whenever you go. You heard what Yamamato-soutaichou said, we have to try and teach Yuzu how to heal with her reiatsu."
"But wouldn't her reiatsu get discovered while she is healing?" Byakuya asked.
"Don't worry. Kurosaki Ichigo's reiatsu is equal or possibly more than a taichou, Kurosaki Karin has natural high reiatsu which enable her to increases her strength while Kurosaki Yuzu's reiatsu is able to hide itself from the enemies."
"I guess all of us each has special ability huh?" Matsumoto grinned.
"The only special ability you have is seduction, old hag." Byakuya muttered.
A vein popped on Matsumoto's head and she pushed Byakuya's face into her cleavage. "Calling me old hag is unforgivable!"
"Ah! Kuchiki-sama can't breathe!" Yuzu exclaimed.
"He will survive." Toushirou said in a bored tone.
Done! Don't forget to review!
