The next day the three girls of Squad 14 were woken by a loud crashing and banging from their captain's room. Zaku was about to bolt out the door when Karin opened it easily. Seeing the panicked look on her face the dark haired Kurosaki sighed.
"Relax a little, Zaku. This is the normal morning routine here. Dad tries to get the drop on Ichi-nii and ends up getting his face smashed in before breakfast. Thank your lucky stars he hasn't decided to try it on you girls yet. Believe me, he will. Eventually." She said turning to head back to her room.
A loud shout echoed from Ichigo's room as Isshin was thrown out the window by his son. Adalyn put on a bored expression and climbed out of the tangled mass of sheets that was her bed. She didn't even bother trying to straighten it out; she just walked out the door and down the steps.
Danni sighed and pulled her covers up before pulling her dark brown hair into its usual two ponytails on the sides of her head. She then helped Zaku climb out of the hammock that the family had provided her to sleep on. Ichigo promised them that later they would go out and get the youngest member of their squad a normal bed later, so she didn't mind almost tripping every time she had to get up at night. Once the two of them had some semblance of decency the, too, went downstairs. Their red headed comrade was already getting reprimanded by their captain when they got there.
"Adalyn, you can't just waltz around my house in a t-shirt and your underwear. It's not right and is downright improper. You really need to put something normal on." Ichigo said pointing back up the stairs.
"No chance in hell, Captain." The red head replied lounging back into her chair with an arm thrown over the top.
"All right, smart ass, if you aren't going to change then you don't get any food." He said moving to his normal seat with a shrug.
That got her attention. Danni and Zaku barely had time to get off the stairs before Adalyn shot back up to their room. Within seconds they heard loud cussing and banging as the third seat tried to get some decent clothes together so that she could eat. Ichigo laughed softly form where he was sitting and shook his head.
"I had a feeling that was going to work." He murmured to no one in particular.
"Hey, Yuzu, Karin." Danni called lightly as she walked in.
"Good morning Captain, Yuzu, Karin." Zaku said softly coming in behind Danni.
Ichigo nodded to them but his sisters greetings were forestalled by Adalyn skidding to a stop just outside the kitchen. All of them looked at her with varying levels of surprise as she stood there panting slightly. The sandy blond haired Kurosaki sibling smiled and started dishing out food to everyone.
Now that her basic panic attack was over Adalyn walked sedately to the chair on the far end of the table. Everyone else was seated in some sort of order and so far things hadn't gone more out of control than the red head's outburst about breakfast. Then the quiet peace was shattered when Isshin came barreling through the door straight at Ichigo.
"GOOOODDDDDD MORRRRNNIIINNGGG FAAAAMMMIIILLLYYY!" he cried flying at the table with a massively idiotic grin on his face.
His flight was stopped by two strong blows to his chest. He was thrown backwards into the wall behind him. The force of the shot had knocked all of the air out of him and left a large Isshin-sized crater in the wall.
Adalyn blinked and looked at her captain for a minute. At the same time she moved to kick the black haired man Ichigo had moved to punch him. It just so happened that their blows fell in the same spot. Now an irk mark appeared on Ichigo's head and he clenched his fist.
"WHY DID YOU HAVE TO COME BARGING IN HERE LIKE A TOTAL MORON?" he cried angrily at his father.
"WHY DO YOU TREAT ME SO ROUGHLY SON?" his father yelled back pulling himself out of the wall.
"Here they go again…" Karin sighed into her food.
"It looks like this fight won't end anytime soon." Yuzu said gazing sadly at her older brother and father.
"You got that right." Danni and the other girls agreed.
Things only seemed to get worse the longer they were allowed to carry on but a familiar burst of Reiatsu stopped them. Ichigo was the first to realize what it was. His father took his brief moment of distractive as an opening. He got up and threw a right hook at his son's head. The orange haired teen didn't even finch, he just dropped to the ground let his father fly over his head. Isshin barely had time to catch himself before he fell into the table. Karin leaped up as her father sprawled out on the table in front of her. Adalyn also jumped up, but she was sheltering her food.
In a matter of seconds Rukia came walking down the stairs fully dressed and ready to step in and end the fight. It was well enough that she had come down when she did; Adalyn had joined in on the fight when her food had been kicked by Isshin's flailing leg, Ichigo was getting out of an Ichigo-shaped hole in the wall, and Karin was shaking her father by the collar of his shirt while screaming bloody murder. The petite Soul Reaper surveyed the scene for half a second before she stepped in.
Raising her hand and aiming it at Isshin she called out in a clear voice, "Hado #33: Sokatsui!"
The Kido spell erupted forward and slammed into the dark haired man's side. He was torn out of Karin's grip and through the wall opposite the stunned girl. Rukia lowered her hand with a smirk before moving to help Ichigo back to his feet. Adalyn stomped off to give the now limp Kurosaki matriarch a piece of her mind and Danni ushered Zaku back up to their room.
"Hey, Ichigo. Don't we still have to go to school today?" Rukia asked letting go of his hand.
"Shit." Ichigo whispered running back up to his room.
The petite Soul Reaper followed quickly behind him. The rest of the house was soon able to hear Ichigo yelling at and arguing with Rukia. Soon both of them came barreling back down the stairs dressed in their school uniforms. Ichigo briefly scrambled around the kitchen, giving both of his sisters a brief hug before flying out the door after Rukia.
Adalyn stared blankly at the area where the two of them disappeared from. Karin snickered and turned to grab her school bag. Only when the red head in front of her turned did she drop the smirk that had begun to occupy her face.
"What was that all about?" the red head asked, turning to look at her captains dark haired younger sister.
"They may by all powerful Soul Reapers some of the time but the rest of the time, when they are here, they are ordinary high school students." Karin replied.
"OK then. Wait, he left before giving us any orders. What do we do now?"
"I don't know and, I'm sorry, but I don't care. I have to go to school too, so bye." The dark haired Kurosaki said waving a hand over her shoulder as she left.
Yuzu followed shortly after her sister, leaving a stunned red head in the middle of the kitchen. Sighing, Adalyn walked back up to the room she shared with her squad mates a moment or so later. The fifth seat and the captain's apprentice looked up as the door slammed open, revealing their red headed team mate. Danni looked like the was about to say something about Adalyn's attitude and Zaku had a questioning look on her face.
"Well, for now our brave captain is gone. Unfortunately he didn't leave any instructions." Adalyn said looking down.
"That means?" Danni prompted, still looking irritated.
"We can do whatever we want today." the red headed third seat said with a devilish smile.
The other two girls hesitated for a moment at the look. Then the meaning of the words hit them. Zaku's eyes brightened and a huge smile split her face and Danni smirked, thinking about how she was going to spend a free day in the World of the Living.
"I say we pull a prank on taicho. What do you think?" the third seat asked flopping down on her messy bed.
"What kind of prank?" the brunette asked, her interest piqued.
"Well, Danni, I think that we should do something that the humans will never forget."
"We're likely to get in trouble for it, though." Zaku piped up, her small voice becoming the voice of reason.
Shaking her head Adalyn sighed, "Not unless he doesn't know it's us doing it. Kuchiki-san might figure it out but I'm almost positive taicho won't know it's us."
Danni nodded slowly as she saw the logical reasoning behind the third seat's statement. It was well known that their captain had a really hard time sensing the spiritual pressure of anyone but his closest friends. After a little bit more prodding Zaku was on their side. She had finally been convinced that they wouldn't be punished by their orange haired captain and was more than willing to help out. Adalyn rubbed her hands together, a devious smile on her face.
"This is going to be fun. Now, what to do?" she asked the other two, still smiling like a fox.
Sorry this is a short chapter this time. next chapter is going to be interesting. I would like to hear you oppinions on what Adalyn, Danni, and Zaku should do. Please tell me and the one that is the funniest and the most emberassing (not too much though) will be waht they do. Please review and thanks for the support!
