Lambtron: Hello people~! Lambtron here with her second Bleach fic, this time with GrimmUlqui, 'cause you can't show too much love to that ship. Aaand I happen to have the guys here with me today. Say something you guys~
Lambtron: Aw guys, you're so boring today.
Grimmjow: Ulquiorra's always boring.
Ulquiorra: Shut up, trash.
Lambtron: Alright, now that you've said at least something, let's continue. So, second Bleach fic with GrimmUlqui. Also will contain GrimmIchi in later chapters, and the rating will change to M later, because of reasons.
Grimmjow: Who is having sex?
Lambtron: Wouldn't you like to know.
Grimmjow: *Prays* Please don't let it be me, please don't let it be me...
Lambtron: And disclaimer, of course, so I won't get sued: Bleach or its ah-so-awesome -characters aren't mine, they belong to Tite Kubo, so let us all praise him. If I had owned Bleach not a single villain would have died.
Grimmjow: Are you done? I think people came here to read the story, not to listen to your explanation.
Lambtron: Oh yeah. So, I have said all I have to say. Please enjoy, laugh and fangirl so very much~
~ Hueco Mundo Will Never Hear About This ~
Chapter 1 ~ The Mission
"Why couldn't we just open a Garganta to our new backyard?"
"We have to look like we're just coming to this town. Besides opening a Garganta there would've been too risky."
Grimmjow growled and leaned back on his seat. He looked out of the window of the bus and muttered something about humans being blind and that they would've seen nothing anyways. Ulquiorra, who was sitting next to him, glanced at the bluenette without saying anything. He scanned at the people in the bus and his eyes met some little, about five-year-old girl's light blue ones. The girl was staring at him and Grimmjow curiously.
"Mommy, why those two boys look so weird?" he said out loud to her mother, who glanced at the two Espada quickly before turning her head to face her daughter.
"Asako! Haven't I told you not to be so rude!" the little girl's mother whispered and gave apologizing look to Grimmjow and Ulquiorra. The latter just moved his gaze away without any change in his expression, but the former snorted and closed his eyes, looking pissed off.
"Tell me again why I had to come to the real world with you", the Sexta Espada snarled, and Ulquiorra stared at him.
"You wanted to see us, Aizen-sama", Ulquiorra said as he entered to Throne Room 1 with bored looking Grimmjow. Aizen was sitting on his chair and he raised his head as he heard the Cuatro Espada's voice.
"Ah, Ulquiorra, Grimmjow", Aizen said with a sly smirk and leaned his chin on the palm of his right hand before he continued, "Indeed. I have a mission for you two."
Grimmjow narrowed his eyes almost unnoticeably and looked up at Aizen.
"What is it?" he asked before Ulquiorra could open his mouth. The smirk on Aizen's face went wider as he looked at the Espada.
"I want you two to go to the human world and find a person named Kurosaki Ichigo."
Grimmjow frowned and surprise shone on his face.
"And what then? We kill him? Why the hell do you need two of us to kill one human?" Grimmjow felt like his abilities were being doubted. Like he couldn't kill one person himself. But Aizen just smirked and cocked his head a bit.
"Huh? Then what? Do we have to bring him here or-"
"Shut up and let Aizen-sama speak", Ulquiorra cut the Sexta Espada off. The bluenette gave a sharp look to Ulquiorra, but closed his mouth.
"Thank you, Ulquiorra. Now, back to your mission: I want you to find Kurosaki Ichigo and become friends with him", the head of the Hueco Mundo said and looked at the two Espada, waiting for their reactions. As always, Ulquiorra's expression didn't change one bit, but Grimmjow instead, well, he looked like someone had just hit him in the head with a brick.
"What the fuck? What kind of mission is that supposed to be? You want us to become a friends with a human?" he raged and took a step towards Aizen, but stopped when he felt a cold hand on his shoulder. He moved his gaze to the hand on his shoulder and then to Ulquiorra, who was looking at Aizen. Grimmjow wiped the Cuatro Espada's hand off of his shoulder and took a step back, staring at the wall annoyed.
"Kurosaki Ichigo is not a human. He is a Substitute Shinigami of Karakura Town", Aizen continued like the incident just a second ago had never happened. The Sexta Espada raised his head and was suddenly much more interested in what Aizen was saying.
"What do you want us to do after we've become friends with him?" Ulquiorra asked. Aizen closed his eyes and silence fell over the three of them for a second.
"Learn his weakness and destroy him."
"Why can't we just kill him in the first place?" Grimmjow whined and stared at Aizen, who was still smiling.
"That would be too suspicious and endanger our true goal", Aizen said, talking about the making of the King's Key. Aizen opened his eyes and looked at Grimmjow, who looked like he had nothing more to say, so he continued:
"Kurosaki Ichigo is a big risk, so we must eliminate him while we can. He hadn't ever met you before, so you two are perfect to perform this mission. Do you have anything to complain about?" Aizen raised his reiatsu a bit to make it clear that the two Espada didn't have anything to complain about. Though this was rather meant to make it clear to Grimmjow that he didn't have anything to complain about. Since the Sexta Espada didn't say anything more than The Cuatro, Aizen smiled wider, revealing his white teeth.
"We have to perform the mission Aizen-sama gave us: destroy the Substitute Shinigami Kurosaki Ichigo", Ulquiorra said and stared at Grimmjow, who sighed.
"Why couldn't we just be in our normal bodies?"
Aizen stood up from his chair and put his hands behind his back.
"Because you must not stick out like a sore thumb, you can't go to Karakura Town in your Espada bodies", he explained and waited for Grimmjow to whine about this thing too. For his surprise, the Sexta Espada kept his mouth shut and waited for Aizen to continue.
"And that's why I asked help from Szayel Aporro."
Right after Aizen had said the name of the Octava Espada, the door opened and Szayel Aporro entered the room with his narcissistic smile.
"Good day, gentlemen", he said and Ulquiorra glanced at Grimmjow who shivered.
"Szayel Aporro here has done faux bodies for you", Aizen explained and lifted his hand towards the pink-haired Espada. "He will explain how they work later. Before that I still have something for you."
Aizen snapped his fingers and immediately an female Arrancar appeared from the dark shadows. She walked towards the Espada and bowed as she handed cell phones for Ulquiorra and Grimmjow. Both of them looked at their own new toys curiously.
"With these you can contact each other and me. Humans would call them phones. The only difference between humans' and your phone is that you are able to locate Hollow and Shinigami with them. And also", Aizen said and gave a look for the Arrancar who had given the phones for the two Espada. She lowed her head and gave a piece of paper and keys to Ulquiorra, who stared at them with his green eyes. Grimmjow moved his gaze to the paper and stretched his neck a bit to see what it said.
"These are the address and keys of the house where you'll live during this mission", Aizen said and looked at Ulquiorra as he stuffed the paper in his pocket. "The house is already furnished for you, there's another keys and money for living. It contains all normal items that every human's house. Learn how to use them. And; you will infiltrate to Kurosaki Ichigo's school as students. Understood?"
"Yes", Grimmjow and Ulquiorra said in chorus and the head of Hueco Mundo smiled with approval.
"Now then, I guess Szayel Aporro tells you everything else. After he's done use a Garganta to enter the real world and start your mission. Good luck", Aizen said and the two Espada bowed before turning around and following the Octava Espada out of the room. They walked along the corridor and Szayel Aporro glanced at Grimmjow and Ulquiorra before opening his mouth:
"I'm very happy for the result of your faux bodies. It took a while, but nothing is impossible for me", gentle laughter before continuing, "Your faux bodies look exactly like your Arrancar bodies, but your Hollow masks and holes are gone and people are able to see you and communicate with you and vice versa. Another thing I had to regard was your reiatsu. Kurosaki Ichigo is a Substitute Shinigami, so he is able to sense your reiatsu and would obviously get really suspicious of you. So what I had to do was hide them. When you enter your faux bodies your reiatsu vanishes and no one is able to notice you are actually Espada. I'm not sure how this works in practise 'cause I haven't tested it, so it's important for you to control your reiatsu and keep it as low as possible. However you are able to sense others reiatsu and will be able to identify Kurosaki Ichigo. Do you get this?"
Grimmjow nodded and Ulquiorra looked like he understood and Szayel Aporro smiled as he glanced at the two Espada behind him. He stopped in front of a huge door.
"We will enter to my lab now, please try not to touch anything", the Octava Espada said and the door opened. He stepped in and was followed by Grimmjow and Ulquiorra.
"Your faux bodies are right here", Szayel Aporro cooed and swung his hand as a request to follow him. They walked towards the lab and saw two dead-looking bodies laying on the table. Grimmjow looked at his own faux body and his eyes went wider.
"What the fuck, why I'm not wearing my regular clothes?" he asked annoyed and moved his gaze to Szayel Aporro, who was probably waiting for that question.
"No one wears clothes like yours in the real world. I examined humans' fashion and acquired you few suitable clothings", the pink-haired Espada explained and flicked his hair, "same goes for you, Ulquiorra."
Grimmjow stared at his faux body on the table. It was wearing black leather jacket, white t-shirt with a black DC logo, light blue jeans and black Osiris shoes. Ulquiorra looked at his own faux body with no bigger interest what it was wearing: black shirt and green-grey striped t-shirt upon it, black jeans and green Converses.
"How do we enter in them?" Ulquiorra asked as he moved his gaze to Szayel Aporro. The Octava Espada smirked and grabbed Ulquiorra's faux body and lifted it up so it was sitting.
"You grab their backs and focus on setting your souls inside of them. It's very easy actually. You are able to leave them by focusing to get your souls out of them. So, I don't think you can leave your faux bodies by accident", Szayel Aporro let go of Ulquiorra's faux body after he had explained, and it thudded back to the table. "While you are in your faux bodies you naturally aren't able to use your Espada powers. You are just like normal humans, what means you have exactly same needs and restrictions as they have."
The pink-haired Espada turned around and hit his hands together. "There, I think I said everything essential. Do you have anything to ask?"
Neither Grimmjow nor Ulquiorra said anything and Szayel Aporro cocked his head a bit.
"Great. I think you are able to leave then. Your personal items are already moved to your house in Karakura Town. If any questions about your faux bodies come to your mind in the human world, you can contact me", the Octava Espada said with a sly smile.
"Can we go now?" Grimmjow asked with bored voice and Szayel Aporro smirked.
"Yes. Don't forget to take your faux bodies with you", the pink-haired Espada said. Ulquiorra and Grimmjow took their own faux bodies from the table and walked out of the lab. The door behind them thumped closed.
"You know well that we must act and look like normal humans so we can perform this mission successfully. And I think we should get off here", Ulquiorra said with his low voice. He had taken the piece of paper, where his and Grimmjow's new was written, and was now staring at it. The bus stopped and the two Espada jump off of it. They started to walk along the street. Grimmjow looked around and was more interested in what kind of neighbors they had, while Ulquiorra focused on trying to find their house.
"Here it is", the Cuatro Espada said, and Grimmjow moved his gaze to the house. It was big, two-storied, detached house with beige walls and dark red roof. The Espada walked to the door and Ulquiorra stuffed the key in the lock. There was a click and the door opened. Ulquiorra stepped in, followed by Grimmjow.
They were standing in a small hall. There was a light blue, small carpet; a stand, which already had few jackets hanging in it; few pair of shoes on the floor and a closet, which likely included housekeeping tools. Ulquiorra and Grimmjow took off their shoes and continued their way. They entered to a short corridor. On the left side of it there was two doorways. The first one was living room and the second one kitchen. The living room was quite large: there were white walls, a three seater white sofa, a black TV in front of it and a small wooden table between them. On the left side of the room was a window with turquoise curtains. On the right side of the room was some house plant and a bookshelf.
The kitchen was a bit smaller than the living room: the oven, draining board, worktop and the fridge were all against two walls in the mentioned order. There were cabinets upon the worktop and under both the draining board and worktop. There was also a window with same colored curtains as in the living room. Next to the window was a small shelf where the microwave and radio were. The wooden table was against one wall and there were two matching chairs. The kitchens walls were painted with white.
The two Espada went back to the corridor. On the right side of it were a door to the bathroom and stairs. There was a washingmachine, a drying rack, a toilet seat and a sink. After checking downstairs Ulquiorra and Grimmjow went upstairs. There were a small corridor, three doors and a window. One door was to bathroom where the shover was. The other doors were to Ulquiorra's and Grimmjow's bedrooms. The one, closer the stairs, was obviously Ulquiorra's, judging by the green walls and same color counterpane.
"This is mine", Ulquiorra said and entered the room. Grimmjow was about to follow Ulquiorra, but the Cuatro Espada put his hand on his chest. "You are not welcome here, trash, this room is mine", he said and with that slammed the door closed in front of Grimmjow's nose. The Sexta Espada snorted and muttered something before he opened the door to his own room next to Ulquiorra's. The room was far too clean for Grimmjow: clothes folded to the closet, the bed made, school books piled on the table. He looked around and walked to the middle of the room. The walls were light blue, and so were the carpet and counterpane. Grimmjow's school uniform was on the bed, which was in the corner. The table was on the opposing wall, in front of the window. The closet was on the left side of the table, next to the door. There were also a night desk and a shelf. The Sexta Espada took off his leather jacket, threw it to the floor and collapsed to the bed.
In the other room Ulquiorra was walking around and checking everything was okay. His bed was on the left side of the room, on the wall that separated his and Grimmjow's rooms. His new school uniform was also laying on the bed. He had similar furniture in his room as Grimmjow: table in front of the window, a shelf, a closet and a night desk. Actually his room was a bit like a mirror image from the Sexta Espada's room, only coloring was different. Ulquiorra sat on his bed and put the keys to the night desk. He took his school uniform from the bed and looked at it: grey pants, white dress shirt, blue-yellow striped tie and beige shirt with Karakura High School's logo. He moved his gaze to the floor and saw a black, simple bag. His new school back. The Cuatro Espada put the uniform back to the bed, stood up and walked out of the room, closing the door behind him. He knocked the door of Grimmjow's room.
"Grimmjow", he called and heard a thud and few steps before the door opened. The Sexta Espada raised his eyebrows and looked at Ulquiorra's green eyes with his own blue ones.
"We should learn how to use all apparatuses", Ulquiorra answered and turned around, "I think we should do it right now, so it won't be a problem later."
Grimmjow stared at Ulquiorra for a second before he stepped out of his room, slammed the door closed and rushed downstairs after Ulquiorra.
The two Espada couldn't even imagine how interesting the next two hours with all the electronics in the house would be.
