Konichiwa! Welcome to my new story! Which I shouldn't even be starting a new story since I have so many that I need to finish up, but I just had to get this down. xD

This is my first Bleach fanfic! I'm obsessed with it and it's my favorite anime right now!

This one's a little choppy but this chapter is just trying to lead up to the main plot. Think of it as the prologue lol.

I hope you guys enjoy this one!


Ichigo woke up to rays of sunlight streaming through his window. It was Monday morning, a school day. He groggily sat up and moved towards his dresser where he quickly got dressed. The strange thing was that Rukia had not gotten up yet and she was usually the first one to wake up.

He went to his closet and slowly opened it. She was still sleeping like a baby, along with Kon there beside her. Well, it was a monday morning, but this was still very different for her.

"Hey, it's time to get up.",Ichigo said while shaking her shoulder. But she still slept, not moving a bit.

Getting frustrated he finally shouted. "Get up!"

Rukia and Kon both woke up very startled and Rukia looked up at him.

"Ah! Are we late?!" ,she exclaimed, instantly jumping out of the closet.

"No but you sure slept in later than usual." ,he mentioned. It was going to be a long Monday morning.


School dragged on for what seemed like forever. Finally, lunch time came around and he spent his time over at the rooftop with Rukia, Chad, Uryu, Orihime, and Tatsuki. He looked rather bored and uninterested in anything as always. It always withdrew him from everyone else but he never cared.

He walked alone to class after lunch, suddenly stopping when he heard a familiar voice calling out to him. It was Orihime. He wondered what exactly it was that she needed.

"Sorry to bother you, Kurosaki-Kun. But I thought I could walk to class with you if that's alright?" ,she asked, tilting her head a bit.
He looked surprised but then nodded. "Uh, okay."

"Okay!" They started walking. Orihime kept that same goofy smile she had the whole time. Somethimes she was just a little to joyful.

Ichigo felt like he should start up a conversation. "Umm...that sure was an interesting lunch you had."

Orihime looked up at him, smiling and nodded. "I suppose so! Riceballs with beans and bread, I love it!"

"Aha," ,he chuckled at her statement.

"Maybe I can make it for Kurosaki-Kun sometime." ,she said and blushed.

"Yeah, that would be nice." ,he said. Only he couldn't imagine having anything that Orihime would make. It was always just..not normal.

"Really?! Then I will sometime." ,she said, smiling.

Ichigo grinned back at her and laughed at her enthusiasm.


At the end of the day, Ichigo worked on homework at his desk with Rukia searching the room for something.

He looked over at her out of curiosity. "What are you looking for?"

She looked back at him from the closet then continued her searching. "Kon. I haven't seen him anywhere." He saw her eyes fall upon something in shock. Then she picked up a limp lifeless Kon.

Ichigo snagged the stuffed animal away from her and examined it closely, peaking into its mouth.

"His tablet's gone!" ,Ichigo screached.

"That's just...great." ,Rukia said, facepalming herself.

"How am I supposed to turn into a soul reaper without that tablet!" ,he exclaimed.

"You're going to have to go to Urahara's shop and get a new one." ,she replied.

He was so frustrated. "How'd he loose that tablet anyway?!"

"Just calm down! I'm sure it was an accident! Don't make such a big deal out of it! Just go get a new one!" ,Rukia yelled.

He stood up from his desk. "Fine!"


It was already nine o'clock at night and he couldn't believe he was walking to the shop at this hour. Stupid Kon. How did he loose that tablet? Did it just fall out of him? This was the first time something like this had ever happened. How troublesome..

He arrived at the shop in silence. It was so quiet. He assumed everyone was asleep. He was afraid to enter. But he did anyway and slowly opened the door.

"Hello?" ,he whispered. There was no answer. No one must have been there. Which was odd.

He went to the back of the shop where all the tablets were there in boxes. He searched around for the box with the tablet he needed and came across a box of tablets that looked like the one he had before.

He took one of the tablets and stuck it in his pocket. Just then, his pager rang and Rukia's voice came out of it.

"There's a hollow running around town. Have you got the tablet yet?" ,she said.

"Yeah, just got it. I'll be there in a minute." ,he replied. He took the pill out.

"Perfect timing..." ,he mumbled to himself and swallowed the tablet.

He waited two seconds, then ten, then twenty, but for some reason, he didn't change into a soul reaper. Which was weird.

He looked down at himself in confusion. "Uh, Rukia?" ,he said into the pager.

"Yes?" ,she replied.

"Something's wrong." ,he said with worry.

"What is it?"

"Well..." ,he started. "I'm not changing."

Her voice then rose up two levels higher. "Did you take the wrong tablet?! Urahara has thousands of tablets! If you took the wrong one, there's no telling what could happen!"

Ichigo cringed back at her tone. "I don't know! It's just..." He started to feel himself go extremely dizzy.

"It's what?!" ,she said in a panic.

"I don't...feel so good." ,he mumbled. Then he found himself plumbing to the ground.

"Ichigo?! Are you there?!" ,Rukia called out to him. But he had already been knocked unconscious.


Ah! What's gonna happen! xD

Well, I hope you guys liked it! Please tell me what you thought in the reviews! I'll try to be back soon!
