Scott, Kitty, and Rouge stood in front of head captain Yamamoto and the others. "I congratulate everyone on a job well done. We have one captive left from the battle who will be locked up in the maggots nest and I wish to thank you three for all of your hard work." Yamamoto said. The three smiled.

"So, did all your questions get answered?" Rukia asked. They nodded.

"I also wish to give the three of you authority over Westchester. If any hollows invade the area, they will be your responsibility to dispatch. You each have a low-level zanpakuto to deal with them. It is true they do not have a shikai, but I don't think you'll need one to deal with the low level creatures." Yamamoto said.

"So, we're the protectors of Westchester, cool." said Kitty.

"Feel free to leave when you are all ready, but I do believe you should all stay tonight, as Miss Kukaku Shiba is holding a party." Yamamoto said.

"So are you three coming?" Kukaku asked.

"Well uh…" started Scott, but she punched him in the face.

"Let's try this again. The correct answer is 'Yes, we'd love to.'" she told them.

"Alright!" said Rouge. Everyone ran over to the Shiba house and the party begun. Before long Shunsui, Jushiro, Rangiku, and Shinji were drinking together; Shuhei, Kensei, Sajin, and Tetsuzaemon were talking together; Kenpachi, Yachiru, Ikkaku, Ganju, and Yumichika were chasing Ichigo; Byakuya and Toshiro were speaking with Rukia hanging on every word; Nelliel, Pesche, and Dondochakka joined in the chase for Ichigo; Nanao, Lisa, and Momo were discussing books; Yoruichi and Kisuke were dancing with Ururu watching, while Tessai held Jinta up by the back of his shirt; Mayuri and Nemu were trying to talk to Uryu, who was avoiding them with help from Renji and Chad; Soi Fon and Marechiyo were trying to talk to Yoruichi as she danced; Koganchiko, Shiroganechiko, Orihime, and Taksuki were talking about food; and Kukaku, Izuru, Isane, and Retsu were talking together. Scott, Rouge, Kitty watched with amusement and curiosity. Then Yamamoto made his way over with Sasakibe.

"Interesting isn't it, how youngsters have such fun with the simplest things." Yamamoto said.

"Sir?" asked Scott in confusion.

"It's time to enjoy yourselves, time passes so quickly." he warned them before walking over and joining in the party, where other squad members came too to the point where there was hundreds of people. Kitty ran off to find Orihime, and Rouge went to go find Kenpachi. Scott stood in the same spot for a minute, before deciding to go find Ikkaku and Uryu, he did owe them a thank you after all.

Late in the morning the next day, Scott, Kitty, and Rouge were preparing to leave. Kenpachi, Ikkaku, Ichigo, Chad, Uryu, Orihime, Rukia, Renji, Toshiro, and Izuru came to wish them well. They all said their goodby's, in which Kitty started to cry. "Take care of yourself kid." she told Toshiro.

"WHAT! I AM NOT A LITTLE KID!" Toshiro scramed at her.

"Kid, don't forget what we taught ya." Ikkaku told Scott, who nodded.

"By the way, I made you three some clothes, so you don't have to go around dressed like soul reapers." Uryu said handing them each a folded pile. Kitty smiled in delight at the sun dress that was pink with no sleeves and reached the ground. Rouge smiled at the long sleeved black shirt with leather gloves and black jeans. Even Scott liked the blue t-shirt and jeans.

"Thanks Uryu, and thanks for helping us, all of you." Scott said.

"Are we ever gonna see you again?" Kitty asked. Rukia shrugged with a grin.

"Alright, Uryu Ishida of the eleventh squad, Kitty Pryde of the sixth squad, and Rouge of the third squad, take care of yourselves and follow through with your orders to protect the Westchester area." Yamamoto said. With a nod, all three left.

They came out on the institution grounds, quickly changing clothes in the bushes, they entered the institution. "SCOTT, KITTY, ROUGE!" came a scram. Suddenly Kert, Logan, Storm, Jean, Hank, and Xavier surrounded them with Evan bringing up the rear.

"Where have you three been? You disappeared for a whole week, we couldn't find you anywhere!" Xavier asked.

"It's been a week?" asked Kitty. Scott shrugged.

"You wouldn't believe us anyway." Rouge said.

"Don't scare me like vat! I vas vorried!" Kert cried out. The others seemed nervous as well.

"We're sorry Professor." Scott said, but inside him, Kitty, and Rouge were beaming. They are members of squads eleven, three, and six. The protectors of Westchester, and friends to some of the greatest people of this world and the next.

I want to thank Mazimoffs forever for your enthusiasm and Sabaku no Ichigo, without you two I may have given up on this story a while ago, but the two of you seemed very excited for each chapter. Also Hunterrror, ladyyuuki16, rihimesama, liger48, minxmeddenger, and vampknightlv94. You guys were very encouraging as well. Thank you also to anyone who's read this whole story, it made me feel better that you liked it enough to reach all 12 chapters. Thanks again!
