Warnings at bottom of chapter
It had been a month since Ichigo had defeated Aizen and the Soul Society had taken the traitor to be dealt with by the newly instated Central 46. Three weeks since he had awakened from his spiritual coma and three weeks since he had last said goodbye to Rukia. He sighed as he walked down the street, it was still in the midst of winter since the war was only at the beginning and it had started to snow heavily. He ground his hands into his pockets to find any more warmth that they could offer and was sadly only reduced to more cold.
It was early Saturday morning and Yuzu had asked him to go to the store to pick up a few things for lunch, Ichigo didn't mind and was glad to be useful, ever since he had lost his powers he had seemed useless to everyone or that's what he thought. He could no longer fight Hollows with his friends hell he couldn't even see ghosts any more.
He walked down the cleared path snow on either side and it gently falling from the sky. He reached the small convenience store and went to open it before stopped and looked over his shoulder, he got the strange feeling that someone was watching him. But there was no one apart from an old lady walking in the opposite direction.
On another totally unrelated note, since his fight with Aizen he had noticed that strange occurrences appearing all over Karakura, maybe he was just losing his mind or he was just seeing things but he could swear that there was monsters just roaming around like nobodies business and no body seemed to be bothered about it at all so he simply had dubbed it as him seeing things or some extreme cosplayers.
He had no idea that while he had been so caught up in the war with Hueco Mundo and fighting Hollows, Arrancars and what ever else Aizen threw at him, that an entire new world had been discovered by the humans. A world of hybrid humanoid beast creatures, which then the government of Japan decided that it would be good for the humans and the monsters from that world, to be integrated into one society.
Ichigo should really listen to the news more, it was always on about the strange new creatures that decided to enter the program.
Ichigo shrugged his shoulders ignoring the fact that he thought someone was following him and continued into the store the bell above signalling someone was there. The old man smiled and Ichigo gave a small wave and walked down the aisles picking up what Yuzu had asked him to grab before a packet of chips fell from the aisle further down the aisle and he raised an eyebrow as he walked over and picked it up before placing it back on the shelf and walking away. Ichigo picked up the last thing on his list before walking to the counter with the basket and placing it down.
"Cold out there?" The man asked as Ichigo started to unpack.
"Yeah, it's still snowing." Ichigo replied with a small smile, he always liked old people. In there own way they were wise and always had good advice. "From the weather report this morning it's going to drop a few degrees tonight." Ichigo did watch the news, however it was only about the weather, not caring to know about anything else.
"Ah it's so very rare to find a young man like yourself interested in the news these days." The man chuckled. "But I have to agree, this winter is going to be a cold one, those Lamia sure are going to have a hard time in this weather, a young man like you should find a nice young girl to cuddle up with." The man chuckled lightly, Ichigo rose an eyebrow at the Lamia comment but shrugged it off. Ichigo grabbed the bags and paid for the items before bidding the man farewell and walking out of the store.
"Come back and keep an old man company if you get bored." Ichigo looked over his shoulder and nodded his head with a smile before walking out of the store the bell showing that he had left. "Nice boy." As Ichigo walked home he couldn't help but feel like being watched again, he set a scowl in place and began to march home, he didn't like this at all.
"I'm getting paranoid!" Ichigo groaned to himself as he started to march home two bags in each hand. He arrived outside the Karakura clinic and pushed the gate open and walked up to the door before changing bag hands and opening the door wide and walking in. It was still to early for his old man to be out of the clinic and there had been a car crash just before Ichigo had left and Isshin had been busy ever since.
"I'm home." Ichigo called out and Yuzu called back from the kitchen.
"In here Ichigo, Karin is out playing soccer, I told her not to because it's so cold out but she didn't listen." Ichigo nodded his head and walked into the kitchen and placed the bags down on the bench and began to unpack them. Yuzu looked over and frowned at her brother, ever since she had learnt about what he had been doing for the last year and a half she was worried for him. Ever since he had awakened from his coma, he just seemed to be on auto pilot around the house doing nothing.
"You don't have to do that Ichigo." Yuzu smiled.
"It's alright Yuzu." Ichigo told her as he put things away before walking over to the sink and filling it up. "It will give me something to do." Yuzu nodded her head and began to prepare lunch as Ichigo started on the dishes. It was an hour later when the two were interrupted by a knock at the door.
"I'll get it." Ichigo nodded and continued to sit at the table simply playing with a fork. That's what his life had come to sitting alone in a room playing with a fork. He sighed before letting the fork fall to the table and he leaned back in his chair. "Ichigo you have a guest." Ichigo rose an eyebrow and stood up walking past Yuzu who smiled at him and headed to the kitchen while he walked to the front door.
"Well, well Ichigo, it has been a while hasn't it, hmm?" Kisuke smiled at him.
"Hat and clogs, what are you doing here?" Ichigo asked surprised. "I didn't expect you to come by." Kisuke smiled and gestured with his cane outside.
"Care to take a walk?" Ichigo nodded, pulled his shoes on and walked beside Kisuke out into the street. "How are you doing?"
"Honestly?" Kisuke nodded. "I'm bored, paranoid and pretty much lost on what to do, and I think I'm starting to loose my mind a little bit."
"Paranoid Ichigo? What would you have to be paranoid about?" Kisuke asked and Icihgo could swear there was amusement in his voice.
"That's the thing I have no idea." Ichigo said looking up into the grey snow clouds that made up the sky. "The last few days I've had this feeling like I'm being watched."
"Do you know something?" Ichigo narrowed his eyes making the man next to him chuckle lightly.
"Maybe." Kisuke said a fan flipping in front of his face as he chuckled lightly behind it. "You seem to be a very popular person Ichigo." Ichigo rose an eyebrow at the shop keeper who was looking over his shoulder. Ichigo looked over his own but saw nothing.
"You know you're weird right?"
"Oh of course!" Kisuke laughed. "Yoruichi tells me so very often." Ichigo chuckled as the two walked down the street. "So you do not know what to do with yourself, it is only natural after all."
"Fighting monsters that go bump in the night is a hard thing to put on your resume." Ichigo chuckled to which Kisuke laughed to it as well, both took in the quiet as they walked along, Ichigo already knew where they were heading, he had taken this road so many times in the last year and a half. They were going to Urahara's shop. Kisuke smiled as he opened the door and walked in beckoning Ichigo to follow which he did, greeting the warmth with a heavy sigh as he closed the door behind him.
"It is getting rather cold out isn't it?" Ichigo nodded his head as he followed Kisuke into the back room and sat down taking the offered cup while Kisuke poured tea into it. "So shall we get down to business Ichigo?"
"I didn't know we had more business to discuss." Ichigo admitted.
"It is up to you if you want to continue on the information I receive from the Soul Society Ichigo." Kisuke told him. "You have done so much, you deserve to know if you want." Ichigo looked at him and slowly nodded his head. "Very well, Soul Society has seen fit to give Hueco Mundo a leader." Ichigo looked at Kisuke in surprise.
"A leader? I don't understand. Will one of the division's go there to look after it?" Kisuke chuckled but shook his head.
"Not quite, you see the third Espada took over." Ichigo's eyes shot wide open.
"The one that was cut down by Aizen?" Kisuke nodded his head.
"You see, the Head Captain gave Harribel a proposition of sorts." Ichigo raised an eyebrow. "Well I was curious when I fought against some of the Arrancar and I wandered about their Zanpakuto you see. Indefinitely they are the exact same as a Soul Reapers Zanpakuto. So when they kill Hollows their souls get sent to Soul Society."
"I had no idea." Ichigo said amazed. "What was the Head Captains offer?"
"The Head Captain offered to leave all remaining Arrancar alone, if they would take Hueco Mundo for themselves and send Hollows to Soul Society."
"And if they didn't?" Ichigo asked thinking he already knew the answer.
"Soul Society would rain down upon them." Ichigo gritted his teeth and growled, why had he thought they would try anything different?
"That's either take it or die!" He growled out and Kisuke nodded his head in agreement, a solemn expression on his face.
"But she took the offer, her fraccion were spared and for the last few weeks there hasn't been a single Hollow in Karakura town." Ichigo was surprised. "I think they do a better job then the Soul Reapers." He chuckled lightly to himself, they were certainly efficient in doing their job at least.
"So why did you want to tell me all this?" Ichigo questioned after they sat in silence for a while.
"I wanted to apologise to you Ichigo." Kisuke said sadly. "I have once before and I believe you gave me an elbow to the face." Ichigo chuckled sheepishly remembering the incident after he had returned from staging Rukia's rescue so long ago. "The night you became a soul Reaper with Rukia's powers should never have happened, I had watched it all, I could have dealt with the Hollow and you would have gone on to be a normal teenager without being any the wiser. I knew what Aizen's plan was even before I put the Hogyoku into the gigai I gave to Rukia, thinking I could hide it from him. I should have done it better."
"Kisuke, there is no need to apologise." Ichigo smiled. "I regret nothing I did." Kisuke smiled and nodded his head. Ichigo sat back, his hands pressing into the matt beneath him as he looked up at the ceiling. "Heard from anyone?"
"Not recently, no." Kisuke said shaking his head. "There was something else I wanted to talk to you about Ichigo." Ichigo opened his mouth to ask what it was before there was a knock on the door. Ichigo rolled his head to look in the direction of the door while Kisuke smiled. "Right on time." He said raising up from where he had been seated before walking out of the room and Ichigo could her the soud of the door opening, the cold air rushing in from the outside and into the small room made him shiver slightly.
"Please come inside." He heard Kisuke say before he heard their footsteps, Kisuke stepped to the side of the door, revealing the woman to Ichigo, she was wearing a white dress shirt with a black tie and black blazer with a professional skirt, nylon stockings and heels. She wore a pair of dark sunglasses to complete the official look with a black briefcase in her hand. She has long black hair that was loose down her back.
"So this is him?" She questioned walking in out of the hallway and into the room, Kisuke closing the sliding door behind her as she walked forward.
"That's him, Ichigo Kurosaki." Kisuke replied as he walked back to where he was seated. Ichigo looked up at her and didn't know what to say, she obviously wanted him for something but Ichigo didn't know what, if she came to Kisuke it must be something spiritual right?
"My name is Sumisu, however you can call me Ms Smith if you'd like." She greeted, kneeling down before the table and placing her briefcase down on it making Ichigo turn his head to Kisuke who was sitting back down a smile on his face. "You will be needing to read this." She said opening her briefcase and pulling out a large book. "It's full of rules for you to follow, this program has a lot of them so be sure to memorise every last one." She told him handing him the rule book.
"Uh... why?" Ichigo questioned looking at the book with a raised eyebrow. "Kisuke... the hell is going on here?"
"Well!" Kisuke cheered. "Your Father and I have decided!"
"Why is it that as soon as my old man's involved in something I want to instantly beat the crap out of the both of you!" Ichigo growled out glaring at Kisuke who chuckled sheepishly. "What is going on here?"
"You're becoming apart of the interspecies exchange program." Ms Smith told him with a sigh, having expected Kisuke to explain at least that much to him.
"Interspecies-what-now?" Ichigo questioned with a raised eyebrow making Ms Smith sigh and run a hand down her face, what was wrong with the youth of today, one minute they know all the rage about new electronics and then they didn't know what the hell was happening in the world having locked themselves in their rooms doing unspeakable things when exploring their own bodies... whoa getting off track.
"The interspecies program Ichigo." Kisuke told him. "I know you've been busy catching up with school work and everything but I'd at least thought you'd watch the news, read the paper or hell, see them on the street from time to time."
"See what?" Ichigo questioned clearly confused about everything.
"Miia, could you please come out here, we'd like to meet one of your new house mates." Ms Smith called out. Ichigo glanced over to the only door anyone could possibly be within and his eyes widened slightly as he saw a beautiful girl's face appear from the side of a door, she had long bright red pinkish hair and her head was covered in a beanie probably from the cold weather, even though it was considerably warmer within the store.
What Ichigo noticed next about her were her large amber eyes, that he could say resembled a snakes next was that he saw how long her ears were, they were obviously not human and were pointed, she also had pink scales.
"Hello." Miia greeted with a smile almost nervously, making Kisuke chuckle lightly, he had explained a few things about Ichigo to her but he honestly didn't know how he would truly react to her. "I'm Miia."
"Ichigo." Ichigo greeted awkwardly in return, still not knowing what was going on.
"Come on out Miia, nothing's going to happen." Ms Smith told her making her nod her head. As Miia began to move out from behind the door frame Ichigo found it odd that he didn't hear her footsteps. Then he realised why, from her waist down, her upper body covered in at least three thick jackets, was a long reptilian tale the same colour as the scales on her cheeks and her lite pinkish red hair. Her tail was wrapped in several blankets as she made her way towards the table, it looked as if she was a clothing rack.
"She's a Lamia." Kisuke said seeing Ichigo's shocked expression.
"I can clearly see that." Ichigo told him. "What exactly is happening here."
"Several months ago, the new beings was revealed to the public eye." Ms Smith explained to him. "The government then decided to try and bring the new species together with humans in a program to integrate the new beings into our own society." She continued. "And you have been picked as one of the programs supporters, or more so volunteered by Kisuke here, don't worry your family is well aware of what is going on. Your father was even excited about it, until he found out that no sexual relations are permitted between species. That's rule number one."
"Of course it is." Ichigo said rubbing his forehead, at least he could tell his dad to kiss his ass about what ever it was he was planning on doing. "Why exactly was I volunteered for this?" He asked glaring at Kisuke.
"Several volunteers have already failed at their jobs and their guests were to be removed from their care." Ms Smith explained. "Some were simply sickly perverted while others were people who wanted to use their new house guests for their own cause of fame. There was even one case where experimenting was done." Ichigo's eyebrows furrowed in irritation at that. "I trust Kisuke's judgement for I have known him for quite some time. He says you are a trustworthy person, so I am relying on you to take good care of Miia." Ichigo ran a hand through his hair as he glanced to Kisuke who was grinning behind his fan. He glanced to Miia who was smiling slightly, she was eager to begin the program.
"No way I can push this onto someone else... like let's say Ishida?" Ichigo questioned.
"No." Kisuke told him. "Every thing's already been decided, since you are still classified as a minor your Dad handled all the paper work." Ichigo groaned slightly. "Everything has already been dealt with, all you need to do is take Miia home and live with her."
"If there is anything you require please don't hesitate to call me." Ms Smith said handing him her card which he took. "I'll be popping in from time to time to make sure everything is going alright. Follow the rules and I'm sure there will be no problems, and if anything financial comes up, we'll take care of it." Ichigo simply nodded wandering how he got into these situations.
"Well, I'll be off." Ms Smith said standing up and heading for the door. "I'll see you around." She opened the door and walked out, closing it after she left, Miia wrapping her arms around herself as a cold draft hit her from the outside.
"Well this is going to be a problem." Kisuke hummed out, Ichigo running a hand down his face knowing something was going to go wrong while Miia simply smiled happily. "How are we going to get her to your house in this weather? Lamia are poikilotherm after all."
Something diffrent, and for some people will be hard to find since 'Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou' doesn't have an archive of it's own on Fanfiction yet, kinda sucky since I've got a few ideas for stories and what not for the series but no where to put them as of yet. So I thought I'd start of with a Bleach/Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou for starters, what can I say, I love putting Ichigo through ecchi hell.
Well a few things that you readers should know about this new story of mine, there WILL be interspecies lemons further along down the track. If you don't like that, or are not willing to read that, I'd suggest you stop reading now. There will be warnings before each lemon starts but there will be lemons.
Don't even ask, it's a harem.
Ichigo will not be regaining his powers in the future, meaning no Fullbring Arc and no Quincy War, it'd be too confusing to put that in later unless I change my mind and somehow get an idea for such a thing, until then no, just no.
I'm pretty sure that's it, so yeah hope you enjoy, later.
