Chapter 15


Author's Note: Hello everyone and welcome to chappie 15 of Numb! Are you all ready to see what's going to happen? Well, let's get started!

Oh, one thing before I forget. Someone mentioned that the chapters weren't long enough. Well I have come up with a solution. For my birthday which is February 13th, I am getting Dragon. Now for those of you who don't know, Dragon is a computer software. Basically, it allows you to write things by speaking into a microphone. So, instead of typing all this out, I can just speak and Dragon will type it up.

So, after my birthday expect some longer chapters!

Pairings: Hichigo x Ichigo, Unasaki x Urahara, and Byakuya x Renji

Warnings: cussing, OOCness, violence, yaoi, and lime

Disclaimer: I in no way own Bleach or the Linkin Park song "Numb". I do not in any way own the characters from Bleach and am not making a profit off of this fic.


Ichigo's Thoughts

Hichigo's Thoughts

Are you fucking kidding me?

Hichigo gritted his teeth and clenched his fists at his sides. The rage was building inside of him and just kept building with each second that past.

"You better tell me how to get those ingredients in the next three seconds or something really bad is going to happen to you, Asashin." said Hichigo as his yellow eyes glared at Asashin with the intent to kill.

Asashin was trembling where he stood behind his counter.


"Okay, okay! There is no need for violence! I know where you can get the ingredients."

He ducked under his counter and shuffled through a few pieces of paper. He nodded his head at one and picked it up. Grabbing a pair of glasses from the counter, he looked the note over. Hichigo could see that there was a bunch of scribbled notes on it, all in very small and difficult to read handwriting.


"This is the list of ingredients, but you're not going to like it." said Asashin taking off his glasses.

"And why is that?"

Asashin sighed and took a seat on the stool behind the counter.

"All my formulas I write in riddles so, no one can get their hands on them. This list is in riddle and I don't remember what it means." he explained. [1]

Ichigo recognized that look in Hichigo's eyes.


Just as Hichigo went to shunpo towards Asashin, Ichigo was quicker and appeared in front of him.

"There is no need to hurt Asashin. We can solve the riddle, right?"

"I'm positive you could." said Asashin weakly.

Hichigo growled and snatched the paper out of Asahin's hands. He looked over it before reading it out loud.

"A shard of white from a hellish monster. What the fuck is this?" [2]

"A shard of white…from a hellish monster…" repeated Ichigo as he tried to figure out the puzzle.

"I don't remember any of the ingredients on there. You'll just have to figure it out for yourselves. Perhaps Unasaki could help you."

"We'll go and ask him right away." said Ichigo as he practically dragged Hichigo out of the castle.

"Unasaki!" yelled Hichigo as they appeared back in the world of the living.

"Hichigo, would you stop being pissed. We'll figure it out, I promise." said Ichigo.

Hichigo sighed.

"I know, it's just…this is really annoying and I just want to be a hollow again…for you."

Hichigo walked over to Ichigo and slowly lifted Ichigo's chin so he could look at Ichigo's deep, chocolate eyes. Hichigo hovered his lips above Ichigo's. He could feel Ichigo's warm breath on his mouth.

"I love you." he whispered before capturing Ichigo's lips in a passionate kiss.

Ichigo moaned at the contact and shivered when Hichigo's tongue lapped at his lips, asking for entrance which Ichigo gladly gave him. His tongue explored all that Ichigo had to offer and they were both caught up in each other until they heard a cat call. They immediately separated, both panting and Ichigo was blushing.

"Well wasn't that a show!" called Unasaki smirking the whole time. [3]

"You old pervert!" screamed Hichigo and Ichigo laughed at their antics.

"Hey, Unasaki." said Ichigo waving to the other hollow.

"So, why are you two here." said Unasaki leading them into the tea room. Unasaki poured them all a cup of tea.

"Well we went to Asashin's for the other potion…" started Ichigo.

"But he didn't have any of the fucking ingredients." Hichigo added with a sneer.

"However, he did have this riddle."

"And we need you to help us solve it." finished Hichigo.

Unasaki took a long sip of tea before addressing the two of them.

"Let me see this riddle."

Hichigo unfolded the small piece of paper and looked over the childish handwriting.

"Asashin really needs to work on his penmanship…"

He scanned the riddle a few times before handing it back to Hichigo. Another sip of tea was taken, before he gave them his theory.

"Well, let's see. This potion is going to turn Hichigo-san here back into a hollow. Right?"

They both nodded.

"A shard of white from a hellish monster. No offense, but regular hollows are considered hellish monsters and they wear white masks. So, I'm assuming the recipe calls for a piece of a hollow mask."

"How do we get a piece of a hollow mask? I mean as soon as you kill a hollow, it disappears." asked Ichigo.

"Well that's something for you two to figure out, not me." said Unasaki with a chuckle.

Ichigo and Hichigo both groaned.

[1] Riddles, really?

[2] Obviously, it's my poor attempt at a riddle…

[3] It was so fluffy and Unasaki had to ruin it!

Author's Note: Well there it is, ladies and gentlemen. I hope you all enjoyed and be expecting some longer chapters by mid-February.

RQOTD: How was my riddle?

I absolutely suck at riddles so, how was it?
