Hello loyal readers! You may have noticed I've put two new stories up. If not, go read them. This story is still my main priority, though. Once I finish the 4th chapter of this story, I will begin working on Fox Avatar once again. I will be rewriting a few of the chapters on it, and when I'm done with that, I'll put up the 5th chapter. So, look forward to that.

Anyway, LET THE READING COMMENCE!


Naruto was making his way to second division. It had been a week since his reassignment. He had told Ikkaku and the others about his reassignment, and their reactions were mixed, to say the least. Kenpachi was Kenpachi, in that he made Naruto promise to fight him as soon as he got stronger. Yachiru had jumped on him and shouted, "Don't go!". Yumichika, Naruto kinda tuned out. Ikkaku just told him to come by and hang out sometime, which Naruto agreed with. The rest of 11th division just told him good luck, and to come visit every now and then.

As he made his way to the 2nd division, he wondered, 'What exactly am I supposed to do?'

He entered 2nd division and headed to the Taicho's office. When he arrived, he saw a fat man sitting at the desk in front of the door. He looked to be fairly tall, and had black hair. He wore the standard Shihakusho, though he also had a large purple collar attached to it, making Naruto raise a brow.

"What do you want?" the man questioned.

"I'm Naruto Uzumaki-Namikaze. I'm the new 3rd seat. I was supposed to be meeting the Taicho today." Naruto said impassively. The man grunted and stood up, shocking Naruto. This man was taller than he was!

"Marechiyo Omaeda, Fukutaicho of 2nd division. The Taicho is in there." Omaeda said, pointing to the door. "Come on." he said, walking to the door. Naruto followed him in.

"What is it?" the woman sitting at the desk questioned.

"The new guy's here." Omaeda said, stepping to the side, allowing Naruto to see her, and her him.

"I'm Naruto Uzumaki-Namikaze." he said to the woman. The woman glared at him slightly, making him frown. "Is there a problem?"

"Yes. You were promoted due to the Soutaicho, not because of me. I have no idea what you can do, aside from what the Soutaicho said you can do."

"Then have someone spar with me. You could observe, or you could even fight me yourself."

"Is that a challenge?" she said, her eyes narrowing.

"No, merely a statement. Though, if you're asking for one, I will gladly fight you." Naruto said, never changing his expression. Soifon merely glared at him.

"That sounds like a wonderful idea." a new voice said. They all turned to the door to see Yamamoto himself standing there.

"Soutaicho-sama." Soifon said.

"What's up, old man?" Naruto asked. Yamamoto chuckled.

"I was here to make sure you arrived on time." he explained, "But I heard your proposal of a spar between you and Soifon-Taicho. I think you should do it." he said.

"You sure, old man?" Naruto asked. Soifon smirked.

"Afraid you'll lose?"

"No. I just don't like to have unnecessary battles. My strength is not for showing off. I'm a ninja, not a warrior." Naruto explained.

"But it won't be unnecessary, Naruto-kun. You and Soifon-Taicho will spar in front of the other Taichos. Some of them have been wondering what exactly you can do. This spar would show your skills."

"I have a few requirements, though, old man."

"What would they be?" Yamamoto asked.

"One, no Zanpakuto. As I said, my power is not for showing off. Two, no Kido. I don't know enough about it to use it yet, anyway. So, just Shunpo and hand to hand combat. Alright?"

"That is acceptable. As the 3rd seat, you need to be fairly talented in hand to hand. The spar will take place tomorrow. Omaeda, please show Naruto around the barracks." Yamamoto said, leaving. Naruto turned to Omaeda.

"So, you gonna give me a tour?" Naruto asked. Omaeda nodded, and led him out of Soifon's office. Soifon sighed, then sat down in her chair and resumed doing paperwork.

2nd division barracks

Omaeda showed Naruto around the barracks and introduced him to a few members of 2nd division. He bragged about how the floors were heated, the doors were automatic, and the barracks had air conditioning because of him. Naruto mostly tuned that out, though, instead thinking about his spar with Soifon.

'I may be confident in my hand to hand skills, but she's the Taicho for a reason. This won't be an easy fight.' he mused. He was broken from his musing, however, when Omaeda suddenly bopped him in the head.

"What?" Naruto asked, rubbing where Omaeda hit him.

"This is your barracks, where you sleep. Tour's over." Omaeda said, gesturing to the room they were standing in front of.

"Thanks, big guy." Omaeda merely grunted.

"You're really gonna fight the Taicho?" Omaeda asked.

"Yeah. I need to."

"Why?"

"To prove myself. To prove that I deserve my rank, to prove I haven't forgotten where I came from." he said, the last part barely a whisper.

"What was that?" Omaeda said. Naruto shook his head and walked into the room.

"Nothing, Fukutaicho, nothing. Goodnight." the door shut. Omaeda shrugged and headed to his room to get some sleep.

Naruto looked around his new room. It was spacious, to say the least. It wasn't huge, but it was enough for him to be comfortable. The furniture was rather simple, tables, chairs, and a couch. It had obviously been cleaned out, so Naruto could personalize it later. Not having much to do after looking around the room, Naruto headed to the bedroom. He placed his Zanpakuto on the table, then shed his Shihakusho. He laid on the bed after switching to his sleepwear. He laid on his back, staring at the ceiling.

'We won't be using our Zanpakuto or Kido, but 2nd division is known for their prowess in hand to hand, so she should be a master of it. It's gonna be like fighting Gai or Lee. Well, at least I'll get a good workout.' he thought, before drifting to sleep.

"Where am I?" Naruto said aloud, as he looked around. He was in Konoha?

"How did I get here?" he said.

"Hello, Naruto-kun." Naruto's eyes widened, and he turned around.

"H-Hinata-chan?" Naruto said. Indeed, he was looking upon his wife.

"Are you…" he trailed off, not wanting to say it.

"No, Naruto-kun, I'm not dead. It is good to see you again." she said, hugging him. Naruto held her tightly, not wanting to let go.

"Why are you here?" he asked, still holding her. She pushed back, so she was looking him in the eyes.

"I know how you feel about Unohana." Naruto's eyes widened.

"I- uh…"

"I approve." she said, shocking him.

"You what?"

"I know the only reason you aren't together with her is because you still feel attached to me. I want you to know, I approve. It's okay to be with her, Naruto-kun. You deserve to be happy, Naruto-kun, and she makes you very happy. As happy as you made me."

"Hinata-chan…" she put her finger on his lips, stopping him from continuing.

"Like I said, I approve. Naruto-kun, this is your life now. You need to stop dwelling on me. I'll be fine, though I will miss you." she said, putting their foreheads together. Naruto smiled, and kissed her. Hinata responded instantly, wrapping her arms around his neck, while his own snaked around her waist. He licked her lips, and she eagerly let him in, turning the kiss into a tongue war. Eventually, they separated, both panting and blushing profusely.

"I will DEFINITELY miss that, though." Hinata said, making Naruto chuckle.

"Aishiteru, Hinata-chan."

"Aishiteru, Naruto-kun." they kissed once more, then broke apart from their embrace.

"Never look back, keep moving forward, and make her as happy as you made me. Promise, Naruto-kun?" Hinata said, as she began fading.

"Promise of a lifetime, Hinata-chan." Naruto said, grinning. Hinata smiled, then faded away completely.

Naruto woke with a start. His hand moved towards his lips.

"Hinata-chan…" he said, looking towards the window. Seeing it was light out, he began to get ready for the spar.

As he was putting his Shihakusho, he heard someone knock on the door. He put on the hakama, and opened the door, only to see Omaeda.

"What's up?" he asked.

"Your spar with Taicho is today!" Omaeda said.

"I know, but we never specified a time." Naruto replied, letting Omaeda in as he headed back to donning his Shihakusho.

"Yeah, well, it's supposed to be in an hour." Omaeda said.

"All right. I'll be finished in a sec." a minute later, Naruto walked out of his bedroom fully dressed, with his Zanpakuto on his hip. Omaeda stood up from the chair he was sitting on and headed for the door. Naruto headed after him.

"So, where's the spar?" Naruto asked.

"The 2nd division training fields. It was the easiest way to organize it with such short notice." Omaeda replied.

"So what do you think my chances are of beating the Taicho?" Naruto questioned, getting a snort in response.

"Slim to none. I know how powerful she is, and I know she'd be able to flatten me. You don't stand a chance." Omaeda said, a serious expression on his face.

"Well, we'll find out, won't we?" Naruto replied, grinning. Omaeda chuckled lightly.

"Guess we will." Omaeda said as they entered the training fields. Every captain, save Soifon, was sitting on benches in front of the field. Naruto saw Unohana, who waved lightly at him. Naruto smiled at her. Soifon was standing in the middle of the field, glaring at Naruto. She wasn't wearing her haori, he noticed. She was wearing the uniform for the commander-in-chief of the Onmitsukido, instead. She also did not have her Zanpakuto. Naruto removed his Zanpakuto from his waist and handed it to Omaeda, who headed over to the benches. Naruto walked over to the field, directly across from Soifon. Her glare seemed to intensify. Yamamoto stepped forward.

"Remember, this is a hand to hand spar only. No Kido is to be performed. Shunpo is allowed. The fight is over when one of you can no longer move. Begin!" as soon as had he stepped back, Soifon leapt forward, aiming a kick to Naruto's head. Naruto ducked under the blow, and she brought her other leg down, again aiming for his head. Naruto jumped back to avoid the blow, then leapt forward. He aimed a punch for her midsection, but she sidestepped it, countering with a spinning back fist. Naruto narrowly ducked under it, then quickly slammed his fist into her gut, making her stumble back slightly from the force. While she was still back from the blow, Naruto performed a roundhouse kick, hitting her left shoulder, sending her a ways back.

"You're holding back." Naruto said as she was getting up. "Don't. It'll get you killed."

"Why's that?" she questioned.

"Cause I'm not holding back." he said, now behind her. He elbowed her in the back, and she used the force to spin around, kicking him in the chest, sending him back slightly. She jumped forward, unleashing a volley of punches and kicks, upon Naruto, ending with an axe kick sending him into the ground.

"Not bad, not bad." Naruto said, getting up while dusting himself off. "My turn." Naruto vanished, appearing in front of her, his knee in her gut. Before she could recover, or even get sent back, he began his own volley of punches and kicks, ending with a powerful punch to the chest, sending her into the wall.

"Impressive." Ukitake commented from the benches.

"I'll say. He's fighting with at least Fukutaicho speed and power. He's way stronger than a 3rd seat." Shunsui said, getting a nod from Kenpachi.

"Naruto was a frequent sparring partner with Ikkaku when he was with my division. The kid's tough." he said.

While they were commenting, Soifon pulled herself out of the wall. Naruto used Shunpo to get behind her and punched her in the back, sending her forward. Again using Shunpo, he appeared in front of her and kicked her upwards. Once more using Shunpo, he appeared in the air and axe kicked her down, sending her into the wall again with a roundhouse kick before she landed.

"Impressive," Soifon stated, pulling herself out of the wall, "You're even stronger than a Fukutaicho in hand to hand. You're on my level, and that's no easy feat."

"I try." he said, getting into a stance no one recognized. His legs were bent slightly, like he was about to run, he was directly facing Soifon, and his hands were clenched into fists at his waist, his knuckles facing Soifon. "See if you can stop this." he said, before disappearing. In an instant, he was in front of Soifon, a loud crack was heard, and Soifon was sent flying back. Picking herself up, she tried kicking him, but once again, he vanished, and she was sent back.

Naruto appeared not ten feet from where she landed.

"I've still got it. I'd advise you to stay down. My blows are going to start increasing in damage now."

"Y-You mean you were holding back?"

"I always do when I fight. If I ever used my full strength, I'd kill people in a couple of hits, and that's boring. I think I've sufficiently proved myself, don't you think?"

"Answer this first. What style is that?" she asked, trying to pick herself up.

"A style my father invented. It's called the senkou no ken. It's basis is extreme speed. That's how my punches were so powerful when I used it. I've yet to meet a person who can beat me when I use it, though two people have come very close." Naruto said, helping her up.

"Who were they?"

"The two greatest hand to hand combat users I've ever met. I knew them when I was alive." he said, "I had a lot of fun today. There aren't a lot of people who can beat my initial speed. I'd love to spar again with you, if you're interested."

"I'll think about it." she said, smiling slightly. "I accept you as 3rd seat of 2nd division." the two of them walked towards the other Taichos. Unohana quickly healed Soifon of what little injuries Naruto had inflicted upon her. Omaeda handed Naruto his Zanpakuto back and Naruto put it back on his waist. The worst was a fractured rib from one of the last attacks. The other Taichos stepped forward.

"Very impressive. You showed impeccable power and skill." Sosuke Aizen, Taicho of 5th division, complimented. The other Taichos were not that different in their comments, save Mayuri, Kenpachi, and Unohana.

"I would be very interested in studying you." Mayuri Kurotsuchi, Taicho of 12th division, commented. Naruto took a step away from the man after that comment.

"You've improved! I can't wait to fight you next!" Kenpachi commented, grinning insanely. Naruto edged away from him as well.

"You're faster than when I watched your last spar with Ikkaku." Unohana stated with a smile. Naruto smiled at her. Eventually, after the Taichos finally left to do their jobs, Naruto got to talk to Unohana.

"Retsu-chan." Naruto called.

"Yes, Naruto-kun?"

"I need to talk to you in private." he said. She nodded, and the two of them went to Naruto's room. The door shut behind them, and they sat down on the sofa.

"What do you need to talk to me about?" she asked. She blushed, however, when Naruto grasped her hand gently. "N-Naruto-kun?"

"You still like me?"

"Y-Yes…" she said.

"Still want to be my girlfriend?" he asked again.

"Yes, Naruto-kun."

"Then, will you? Will you be my girlfriend, Retsu-chan?" he asked. Unohana tackled him to the sofa, so that she was now laying on top of him. She kissed him passionately, and Naruto responded, wrapping his arms around her, pulling her closer to him. Eventually, they separated.

"Is that a yes?" he said, smiling. Unohana giggled.

"Of course, Naruto-kun." she kissed him lightly on the lips. They stayed that way for a while, before Unohana had to leave to get back to her job. Naruto stopped her before she left, however.

"Retsu-chan, you doing anything tonight?" Naruto asked.

"No, my nights are usually free. Why?"

"Well, I was wondering if you'd like to go out on a date with me." he said, grinning and rubbing the back of his head. Unohana smiled.

"I'd love to, Naruto-kun. Pick me up at 8?" she said, kissing him briefly.

"Great! See you then." he said. She then headed back to her division with an bright smile on her face. Naruto then headed out the door, looking for Omaeda.

Eventually, Naruto managed to find Omaeda in front of Soifon's office, sitting in his chair behind the desk.

"Hey, Omaeda-san!" Naruto said, walking up to the desk.

"What is it, Naruto-san?"

"Well, I've been told that the 3rd seat has special duties, but how am I supposed to do it if I don't know what to do?" Naruto asked. Omaeda nodded and got up from his desk, leading Naruto inside Soifon's office.

"What is it now, Omaeda?" Soifon questioned, then nodded instantly upon seeing Naruto again. "I'm guessing you want to know what your duties are?"

Naruto nodded. "Yeah." Soifon stood up and walked towards the door, motioning for Naruto and Omaeda to follow her.

Eventually, they came upon a moat. Soifon and Omaeda ignored Naruto's questions, and once they were across the moat, they led Naruto to a hidden door, guarded by two Onmitsukido members. The three of them proceeded inside.

Nest of Maggots

Upon entering, they were asked to leave their Zanpakutos at the gate. Naruto was reluctant at first, but when Soifon and Omaeda gave theirs, Naruto surrendered his as well. They began walking down a corridor, and Soifon began answering some of Naruto's questions.

"This is the Nest of Maggots. It holds all who would pose a threat to the Seireitei." Soifon said to Naruto. "It is the job of the 3rd seat to run this place. You are the corps commander for the detention unit of the Onmitsukido. The reason I needed to spar with you is not just because I didn't trust you. I needed to test your capability in hand to hand combat, as you are not allowed to bring your Zanpakuto into the Nest. The 3rd seat has to be as skilled, if not more so, than the Taicho in hand to hand combat."

"Why? Aren't they in cells?" he questioned.

"No. They aren't all criminals, they were merely deemed a threat to the Seireitei. As such, they are not restrained, but they are not allowed to leave. Some have a tendency to attack the people who come through here, so you need to be able to fend them off with your bare hands." Soifon answered. Naruto nodded.

"So I'll be making sure this place stays functioning properly?" he asked, getting a nod from Soifon. They showed him the facility, and Naruto subdued a few of the prisoners who were stupid enough to attack them. Naruto was also warned to not use lethal force on them unless necessary.

After they finished explaining the more complicated duties he had, as well as finishing the tour of the Nest, they retrieved their Zanpakutos and headed back to Soifon's office.

2nd Division (Soifon's office)

"That answer all of your questions?" Soifon asked as she sat down behind her desk.

"Yeah. Thanks. Well, if that's all, I'll be going now." he said, leaving the office. He headed back to his room. Upon arriving back at his room, he looked at the clock, he saw that it was 7:00!

'Shit! My date with Unohana is in an hour!' Naruto proceeded to quickly clean himself up. He dashed towards Unohana's house, leaving his Zanpakuto in his room.

Unohana's House

Naruto knocked on Unohana's door, and was rewarded with Unohana answering it in a bathrobe.

"Naruto-kun, you're early." she said. Naruto shrugged.

"Better early than late, right?" she led him inside. She motioned for him to sit.

"I'll just be a minute." she said, before heading back towards her room. Not ten minutes, she came back out fully clothed. Naruto stood up and headed towards her.

"You look great." he complimented.

"But I'm wearing my usual clothes." she said, gesturing to her Shihakusho and Haori.

"Yeah, but you still look great." he said, making her blush.

"Thanks." she said quietly. Naruto chuckled and grabbed her hand.

"Come on. Let's get going." she nodded, and the two began their date.

The couple had decided to do something simple for their first date. They went to a tea shop.

"You sure you don't want to go somewhere fancier?" Naruto asked.

"No, this is perfect. I get to be with you, and that's enough." she said, smiling at him. He blushed, then nodded with a smile. They made their way to a table, and they ordered their tea. They made small talk as they waited for their tea to arrive.

After they finished their tea, they spent more time talking, then they headed somewhere to be alone. The next thing either of them knew, Unohana was sitting in Naruto's lap, arms around his neck while his were around her waist, and they were engaged in a passionate tongue war. After a few minutes, the two of them separated, faces flushed, both panting. Unohana smiled.

"This is probably the best part of our date, Naruto-kun." she said. Naruto chuckled lightly.

"I think so, too." he said before recapturing her lips, reengaging her in a rapturous tongue war. Unohana moaned into the kiss, moving to straddle Naruto's waist. Naruto moved his hands to grip her firm behind, and began kneading it. Unohana, in response, began to grind herself against Naruto, making him groan in pleasure. She moved her hands to his chest, and proceeded to explore his muscles. She shivered at the feeling of his hard muscles moving under her fingers. After another minute, Naruto pulled away from the kiss.

"What's wrong, Naruto-kun?" Unohana asked.

"If we go any further, I won't be able to control myself." he said. Unohana blushed, only just now feeling "little Naruto" pressing up against her. She got off of his lap, sitting down next to him, and grasped one of his hands.

"You're very sweet, Naruto-kun. I don't want us to move too fast, at least not yet. You feel the same way?" getting a nod, she continued, "I know that I like you, but I'm not sure we're ready for that yet."

"I agree. We can wait." they sat there silently, then Naruto noticed how dark it had gotten. "I think I should get you back to your home. It's getting late." he stood up and offered Unohana his hand. He helped her up and she looped her arm around his and laid her head on his shoulder. The two of them walked back to her house.

'I could really get used to this…' Unohana thought, smiling.


Sasuke pulled his hand out of another hollow's mask.

'This is pathetic' Sasuke thought. Since he had achieved Vasto Lorde status, he had yet to find a hollow capable of matching him. He had killed hundreds of hollows since his ascension, and none were even capable of giving him a challenge. But in spite of his obvious power, it wasn't enough for him. He wanted more. He wanted to be the strongest ever.

Sasuke heard a loud roaring sound to his left. Without even looking towards it, he raised his left hand and quickly fired a cero at the charging hollow, blowing it to bits. Sasuke looked towards the carnage and sighed.

'Weaklings. Nothing but weaklings. There MUST be someone capable of giving me a challenge in this wretched world…'

Sasuke sighed again and looked around before taking flight, once more searching for an opponent capable of making his blood boil. His mind immediately thought of the man who killed him.

'Naruto… Someday I will find you, and I will get my revenge. You won't beat me this time.'


"Hado 31: Shakkaho!" Naruto shouted, and a red ball of energy shot towards the training dummy from his palm, incinerating it. Naruto sighed in relief.

"You finally managed to do a decent Shakkaho with the Eishohaki. Took you long enough." Soifon said from her seat atop a tree.

"I told you I don't know much about it." he defended, "Besides, you've seen what I can do with my Zanpakuto. This is just a trump card." Soifon jumped down from the tree.

"True, your Zanpakuto is powerful, but you need Kido to supplement your hand to hand combat, and your Hakuda needs some work, too." since Naruto had been transferred to 2nd division, Soifon and Omaeda had begun to train Naruto. Soifon taught him Hakuda and Kido, while Omaeda frequently sparred with Naruto and helped him further master Shunpo. He also helped him to better understand how the Onmitsukido worked.

Since he became the 3rd seat, Naruto's abilities had soared in proficiency. Naruto had also fully re-mastered his Shinobi skills, thanks to the Onmitsukido. He had achieved a better communication with his Zanpakuto as well, though he was still quite a ways away from even attempting to achieve Bankai. Naruto had also discovered the limits of the powers of his Zanpakuto's Shikai. He had all the powers he had when he was 15, minus summoning.

"Well, I'll get better the more I practice. So, am I done for the day, or are you gonna torture me some more?"

"No, you're done for now. We'll work more on your Hakuda and Kido tomorrow." Soifon said before Shunpo-ing away.

"It's been a year and she still doesn't like me." Naruto said. He shrugged and pulled his Zanpakuto from his obi. He sat in the lotus position, laying his sword horizontally in front of him.

Naruto's Mindscape

Naruto opened his eyes and was greeted with the sight of the memorial tablet, with Arashi standing in front of it.

"Hello, Naruto." Arashi said, turning to face him.

"Hey, Arashi."

"Come for another lesson?" Arashi asked. Seeing Naruto nod, Arashi materialized a kunai. Naruto drew his sword.

"Let's see how much you've improved, Naruto." Arashi dashed forward. Their blades clashed. Naruto managed to overpower Arashi, and kicked him in the chest. Arashi materialized a second kunai and attacked, matching Naruto blow for blow. Arashi eventually managed to push Naruto back, and slashed Naruto across the chest. Arashi continued his attack by kicking Naruto in the stomach, then following through with a roundhouse kick to the head using his other leg. Naruto righted himself before he fell, and used Shunpo to get behind Arashi. He kicked Arashi in the side, slashing him across the back, only to have a log replace him.

"Damn…" Naruto said, dodging a barrage of kunai. Arashi appeared in front of Naruto, a Rasengan powered in his left hand. It impacted Naruto in the stomach, sending him careening into a tree. Naruto stood back up not 5 seconds later, dusting himself off.

"Wow, forgot how much that hurts." he said. He used Shunpo to get in front of Arashi and stabbed at him. Arashi barely managed to dodge, getting a shallow slash on his left side. He threw a kunai at Naruto, who deflected it with his sword. Arashi made two Kage Bunshin, who attacked Naruto, both armed with two kunai. Naruto was put on the defensive, blocking attacks from the two Kage Bunshin. Naruto swung at one of them with such force that he was able to push one back a ways. He put his finger against the other clones chest, hitting his heart.

"Hado 4: Byakurai!" a bolt of lightning shot through the clone, dispelling it instantly. He quickly used Shunpo to get behind the other clone and stabbed it in the heart, dispelling it as well. He turned towards Arashi, who had powered up another Rasengan, and dashed towards him. Arashi dashed forwards as well, pulling back the Rasengan. The two collided, Rasengan against Zanpakuto. Naruto placed his left hand at Arashi's face, then shouted.

"Hado 1: Sho!" Arashi was blasted back from the Kido attack. As he was getting up, Naruto said, "Just so you know, I could have used Byakurai instead of Sho and killed you."

"True, true…" Arashi said, dispelling the kunai, "You've improved. Your overall speed is faster, and you have less problems using Kido. Your hand to hand is improving steadily as well, thanks to that Hakuda training."

"Yeah. I'll be back again sometime. See ya, Arashi."

"Later, Naruto."

2nd Division Training Field

Naruto reopened his eyes and saw Omaeda staring at him.

"What?" he said, grabbing his sword and placing it back in his obi as he stood up.

"just wondering when you'd get your ass off the field so I could use it." Omaeda said.

"Sorry. I was sparring with my Zanpakuto spirit." Naruto said, rubbing the back of his head.

"Whatever. Go away now." Omaeda said, waving him off. Naruto chuckled lightly.

"See you later, Omaeda-san." Naruto said, Shunpo-ing away.

4th Division (Unohana's Office)

Unohana had just finished her paperwork when Naruto suddenly appeared behind her.

"Hey, hime." Naruto said, making her let out an "EEP!" She turned towards her boyfriend.

"Don't do that, Naruto-kun." she said, holding her hand to her chest.

"Sorry." he said, hugging her. She buried her face in the crook of his neck.

"Naruto-kun…" she breathed in his scent.

"You know I haven't showered yet, right?" he said, still holding her.

"Doesn't matter. You still smell like you." she said, her voice muffled by his neck. He gently pulled her back so that he could see her face. He kissed her, and she instantly wrapped her arms around his neck. He darted out his tongue, meeting hers in a passionate tongue war. Eventually, they separated.

"Aishiteru, Retsu-chan." Naruto said, pulling her close to him.

"Aishiteru, Naruto-kun." she responded, snuggling into his chest. The two of them were still a couple, obviously. The two of them had actually admitted they loved each other one month ago. That had proceeded to a rather lengthy session of making out.

"We should take this somewhere more private." Naruto said before using Shunpo to move to her house.

"You've improved." Unohana said, untangling herself from him. She moved to the kitchen, and Naruto followed her.

"What are you making?" Naruto asked, sitting at the table.

"Your favorite. Ramen." in an instant Naruto was behind her, hugging her tightly.

"You're making your ramen? Aishiteru, Retsu-chan." he said, kissing the side of her face repeatedly, making her giggle.

"You really love my ramen that much?" she asked.

"It's even better than Ichiraku's." he said, continuing to kiss her. Naruto had told her everything about his life. He never went too deep into detail, but she knew all about his loved ones, and that included Ayame and Teuchi.

"As much as I love you holding me, if you don't let go, I can't make the ramen." he released her, but not before giving her ass a squeeze, making her "EEP!" in response. Quickly regaining her composure, she returned to cooking their meal. Naruto sat back down at the table, impatiently waiting for his food. When Unohana finally brought out the ramen, he had to restrain himself from jumping her. She laid down his enormous bowl and sat down across from him, beginning to eat her normal sized bowl. Unohana looked up and saw that Naruto was digging into the bowl that was now halfway empty. After another minute, Naruto was done. Unohana finished soon after.

"Delicious as always, Retsu-chan!" he said, grabbing the bowl and taking it to the kitchen. She followed him, taking her own bowl along.

"Glad you liked it, Naruto-kun." she said. In truth, Naruto loved anything she made, but her ramen was definitely his favorite. She always made enough to feed 10 people so that he would at least be moderately sated. Naruto had told her she didn't need to, but she had responded by saying it made her happy when she saw him eating her food with such enthusiasm. After washing the bowls and putting them away, Naruto and Unohana sat on the sofa, Unohana in Naruto's lap, and began kissing each other. The kiss slowly became deeper and more passionate and the next thing either of them knew, Naruto was laying atop Unohana, her arms pulling him down by the neck, his arms snaked around his waist, his hands grasping her ass. Unohana moaned into the kiss and slowly began to grind herself against him. Eventually, they separated. Unohana looked at Naruto.

"Naru-kun, please…" she said.

"Are you sure, Retsu-chan?" he asked.

"Yes, I'm sure, as long as it's with you." she kissed him gently. He gently got off of her and, without breaking the kiss, picked her up bridal style and carried her into the bedroom.

(Lemon Alert!)

Naruto gently laid her on the bed and removed her Haori. He began kissing her neck, making her moan. She slid her fingers inside the top part of Naruto's Shihakusho, and he shrugged it off with her assistance. She began moving her fingers all over his body, reveling in the feeling of his muscles. As he began kissing lower, he began to slide his hands inside her Shihakusho, and began to slowly slide it off of her body. She moved he hands to his Shihakusho, and began removing his clothes as well. Within minutes, they were both completely naked. Naruto latched his mouth onto her left breast while kneading her other one. Unohana moved her hand down to grab his manhood, and began to stroke him off. Naruto then slid his free hand down and slipped a finger into her womanhood, getting a moan of approval from the woman. Naruto soon slipped out his finger, making her mewl in disappointment. That mewl turned into a scream, however, for after Naruto pulled out his finger, he stuck his tongue inside her warm, wet folds. Not long after, Unohana came with a scream, splashing her juices onto Naruto's face. Naruto greedily drank her juices, then slid back up her body, stopping at eye level.

"Delicious, Retsu-chan." he said, licking his lips. Unohana suddenly flipped them over so that she was on top.

"My turn, Naru-kun." she said, kissing and licking her way down his body, stopping at his manhood. She stopped, marveling at the size.

"Like what you see?" he asked teasingly. Unohana grinned. She slowly dragged her tongue along the bottom of his shaft, making him groan in pleasure.

"Very much, Naruto-kun." she said. She began to lick the head, then took it in her mouth. She began to bob her head up and down on his tool. Naruto could only groan in approval, putting his hand on her head, massaging her scalp. Unohana began moving faster, sliding her tongue along the bottom of his shaft. Naruto groaned and shot his seed into her mouth. Unohana gulped down Naruto's seed, continuing to bob up and down on Naruto's member. When Naruto stopped cumming, she let his member out of her mouth with a plop.

"You taste good, too, Naruto-kun." she said. Naruto grabbed her, flipping them back over. He kissed her passionately, settling in between her legs. Unohana felt his member poking against her lower lips. Naruto pulled back from the kiss, looking in her eyes. Unohana nodded, answering his question. He began to slowly ease himself inside her, stopping as he hit her barrier. Naruto looked down at Unohana, not expecting her to still be a virgin. He leaned down and kissed her as he pushed through the barrier. Unohana whimpered into the kiss. Eventually, Unohana began to roll her hips, and Naruto began thrusting, slowly at first. Unohana began bucking her hips, meeting his thrusts. Her cries of "Faster!" and "Harder!" only served to spur Naruto on. In time, Naruto's thrusts became erratic, and Unohana was screaming, her inner walls tightening around his member.

"NARUTO!"

"RETSU!" they both came, their combined juices seeping out onto the sheets. With the last of his energy, Naruto flipped them over so that she was on top. He pulled the sheets over them before kissing her forehead as she snuggled into his chest.

"Aishiteru, Naruto-kun."

"Aishiteru, Retsu-chan." the two lovers then fell asleep in each others blissful embrace.

(Lemon Over!)


Sasuke was flying above Hueco Mundo when he sensed an odd power signature.

'What is that? It doesn't feel like a hollow…' he flew towards it, intent on finding out what it is. When he arrived at the source of the power, he landed and looked around. Suddenly, he heard a voice.

"You certainly have power, don't you?" Sasuke turned around after jumping away. He saw a man wearing what looked like a black battle kimono with a white Haori over it. The man had a sword tucked into his obi. He had brown hair and wore glasses. Sasuke's eyes narrowed. Something about him was off.

"Who are you?" Sasuke said, preparing to fire a cero.

"I am Sosuke Aizen. I am no threat to you." the man said, raising his hands in a submissive gesture. Sasuke powered the cero down a bit, but kept it going.

"I'll be the judge of that. How are you here, and what are you? I know you're not a hollow." Sasuke said.

"I am called a Shinigami. My kind hunt hollows, such as yourself. As for how I arrived here, that is unimportant. Merely know that I am here to make you an offer." the man said, stepping closer.

"What offer? Stay where you are. One step closer and I will kill you. Make no mistake about that." Sasuke replied. Aizen took a step back.

"You are currently feeling bored, yes? No one here can challenge you. None here can hope to match your power. You want to find worthy opponents to kill, yes?"

"Partly." Sasuke admitted, "My true goal is to find the one who killed me, and get my revenge. Naruto Uzumaki…" Sasuke growled at the name. Aizen raised a brow.

"Did you say Naruto Uzumaki?"

"Yes. Naruto Uzumaki." Sasuke repeated, still growling.

"Interesting. There just so happens to be a Naruto Uzumaki-Namikaze amongst the Shinigami." at that, Sasuke's eyes widened.

"WHAT!"

"You wish to kill him? You want revenge? Then join me. Join me, and I will lead you to him, as well as give you power that makes the power you currently possess seem insignificant." Aizen offered his hand. Sasuke looked at the man. Could he trust this man? Was Naruto really amongst the Shinigami? And what was this power?

"Deal. But, you cross me, and I will wipe you from existence. Have no delusions of being able to control me. You point me in the right direction, then get the hell out of my way." Aizen merely shook his hand, not saying anything else.

"Very well. Follow me, and I shall take you to your new home." Aizen said, and began walking off. Sasuke followed, thinking of his impending revenge.


And done! Well, I hope that you enjoyed the lemon. Look forward to more in the future. Tell me what you think about it.

So, Sasuke's met Aizen. What do you think about that?

I probably won't start the canon bleach story until the 5th chapter, though I might do a bit in the 4th. I hope that you look forward to that!

And I've revealed a bit more of Naruto's real power. Now, people have been complaining that I'm making Sasuke too powerful. My response: Naruto has to learn all of his abilities. Sasuke's are instinctual. Sasuke just does it, he doesn't need to learn how to use his powers. Don't you people worry. Sasuke won't always be stronger than Naruto, though he is at the moment. Naruto will be very strong by the time canon starts, and he and Sasuke won't meet until later, my guess is around the arrancar arc. When they do, sparks will fly. Look forward to the battle!

Also, Hinata will never be in the story, save flashbacks and dream scenes. I've decided to keep the Naruto characters at a minimum to preserve the story. Don't like, don't read. See you next time!

Forever in the Sky,

The Red Star
