Aizen blocked Ichigo's zanpakuto, Zangetsu, with a single finger, "I will be coming for you Ichigo Kurosaki," he said as he entered Hueco Mundo. "Hey wait a minute!" Ichigo yelled after him before he woke up in a cold sweat, panting. "What's the matter Ichigo?" Rukia asked as she climbed out of her closet bed. "It's nothing Rukia," Ichigo said as soon as he stopped panting. "You sure you were shifting in your sleep," Rukia stated dryly. "I'm sure Rukia don't worry about it, let's just get ready for school" "Right," Rukia said with a hint of worry for the substitute soul reaper.
During school Ichigo's mind was somewhere else thinking about his reoccurring dream of Aizen and was wondering why he keeps appearing in his dream. "Hey Ichigo," Uryu said snapping Ichigo out of his thoughts. "Ichigo class is over," Uryu said fixing his glasses. "Uh already?" Ichigo questioned thinking he wasn't lost in thought for that long, "Did I really spent the whole entire day thinking about him?" he whispered. "Thinking about who Ichigo?" Rukia asked seeing it was her chance to know what is wrong with her friend. "What? No one really," Ichigo said getting defensive. "We just want to help Kurosaki-kun," Orihime said as Chad nodded in agreement. "Really I'm alright, so don't worry," Ichigo said as he got up from his seat and started walking home with his bag slung over his back. "I will try to talk to Ichigo see you later. Hey, Ichigo!" Rukia said as she catched up to Ichigo and home with him
Ichigo swung his zanpakuto at Aizen whom merely redirected Zangetsu into the ground. "Now, now why would you strike the man who can give you everything you ever wanted," Aizen replied with disappointment layered in his voice. "Like I give a damn, you betrayed everyone in the soul society," Ichigo retorted as he slashed at Aizen again. Aizen simply held Ichigo's zanpakuto and leaned towards Ichigo's body. "Ichigo
..ICHIGO!!!" And with that Ichigo woke up with a choking Kon in his arms and Rukia standing over him with her trademark annoyed look. "Nee-san!" Kon exclaimed when he finally escaped from Ichigo's grip toward Rukia only to get rejected with a swift kick for the umpteenth time in a row. "Seriously what's wrong Ichigo I mean you were shifting and rolling not to mention muttering things," Rukia said with concern. Ichigo blushed at the memory of the dream, "It's nothing Rukia," he replied trying to think what that dream was about. Rukia just sighed knowing it was pointless to continue questioning him further. "Come on Rukia let's go," Ichigo said, with a hint of depression, walking out of his room.
------ Meanwhile in Hueco Mundo-------
In the dark desert wasteland of Huceo Mundo there is an infinitely grand, white castle known as Los Noches. In a throne room silvered hair man with a fox-face was talking to a man sitting in a grand white throne with nice brown hair. "Tell me Aizen, why you don't just take him?" the fox-faced man questioned his superior. "It's actually simple Gin, I need him to get used to me so that way he will be mine plus he looks cute when is confused," Aizen chuckled at the thought of Ichigo blushing. "Seriously in Love aren't ya?" Gin teased. "You can say that Gin," Aizen simply stated, "You can say that," Aizen said again smiling as he daydreamed about the uke that will be his.
------Meanwhile in the Soul Society-------
In the captain's meeting room all the captains except for the captains from squad 3, 5, and 9 for obvious reasons that they are the traitors in Huceo Mundo. "Captains report," the head captain, Genryūsai Yamamoto, stated as he tapped his came on the floor harshly. "Me and captain Ukitake have been digging on what Aizen has been planning on and we believe he might try to create an Okin key to enter the domain of the soul king and kill," captain Shunsai stated while the other squad captains, except for Ukitake, looked shocked at this, while the head captain simply listened. "Anything else to report?" head captain asked. "Well I have been tracking any traces of Aizen's spiritual pressure and discovered trace amounts of his spirit pressure around the residence of the substitute soul reaper, Ichigo Kurosaki," said captain Mayuri of squad 12 with interest. "Why would his spirit pressure be around Ichigo Kurosaki?" Captain Ukitake questioned obviously not expecting that Aizen's spirit pressure is around Ichigo. "I don't know but it does interest me," captain Mayuri replied. "Very well captain Mayuri keep monitoring Aizen's spirit pressure. Captain Ukitake and Captain Shunsai keep researching on what Aizen is probably up to. This meeting is dismissed," Head Captain Yamamoto commanded as he tapped his cane harshly to the ground.
---------- Meanwhile at Karakra High---------
Rukia, Chad, Orihime, an Uryu met up with each other. "Listen, I'm starting to worry about Ichigo. He's been having strange dreams from what I can tell," Rukia said with a good deal of concern. "Rukia, Ichigo won't tell you unless he thinks it's very important either that or he is just embarrassed by those dreams to tell us," Uryu said as he fixed his glasses back into place. "I guess you're right," Rukia sighed. "Don't you worry Rukia when Ichigo needs us we will be there to help. Right?" Orihime assured while Uryu and Chad nodded in agreement. Rukia smiled and nodded into their agreement.
