Ichigo sat at his desk near the window, starring and the gym class. Ever since he got his shinigami powers back, there were not a lot of hollows around. Maybe they could feel his spiritual pressure and shied away.

His teacher was going off about some war started when a lot of spiritual presence appeared. Ichigo looked around the room silently. His friends Gave him a thumbs up. He smiled and raised his hand.

"Yes, Kurosaki-san?" asked the teacher.

"May I use the bathroom?" he asked.

"Yeah yeah. Go on ahead..." she sighed.

Ichigo ran out of the class and made sure he had his shinigami badge. Once he got of off school grounds he placed the badge on his chest.

He placed his body behind a few boxes in the nearest alleyway and flash stepped the were the hollow was located. As he approached, he noticed that the spiritual pressure was getting weaker and weaker by the second. The pressure was familiar but he couldn't place it. As he got a bit closer, he slowed down to a jog. He hid behind a tree and looked around it. He didn't see it at first, but he saw something he never thought he would see again.

'Grimmjow Jeagerjaques'

Ichigo gasped and pressed his back against the the tree, holding his chest. He started to panic. Ichigo thought he had died. He started to wonder if the espada were going to invade.

"I know you are there, Kurosaki!" said the 6th espada.

Ichigo jumped and blushed. He slowly walked from behind the tree and looked at the blue haired man before him.

"W-Why are you here, Grimmjow?"

"Tch, What a stupid question, Kurosaki."

Grimmjow glared at the red head. He then suddenly coughed up blood. "D-Damn it..."

"Grimmjow? What happened?"

"None your damn business, Shinigami!"said Grimmjow before he passed out.
