'Thinking'

'Zanpakuto thinking'

Chapter 3:

Poke.

In their inner world, Hyorinmaru stared at his sleeping Master.

Poke.

Hitsugaya shuffled slightly in the snow before falling back to sleep.

Poke. Poke.

'Master.'

Poke. Poke. Poke.

'Master.'

Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke.

Maaaaasssttteeeeerrrrrr~...'

Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Poke. Po-

'ALRIGHT I'M UP NOW STOP POKING ME!'

'Finally. I've been trying to wake you for 5 minutes now.'

'Oh that's nice. But you know what's nicer? SLEEP!'

'Don't be such a baby Master. You can sleep later, but for now you need to wake up.'

The prodigy rose a brow at the change of tone.

'May I ask why?'

'You have visiters.'

Before he could ask what the Zanpakuto meant, Hitsugaya was forced out of their inner world and back to reality.

Slowly, the boy opened his eyes to find himself in a large room, lying in a white bed that was way to big for him. He tried to get up but instantly winced from pain. Lifting up the white sheet that had been draped on him with his feathered arm, the Captain saw his bandaged shoulder and waist. However, that wasn't the only thing he noticed.

'Hyorinmaru?'

'Yes, Master?'

'Why is there a chickmunk lying on my stomach?'

'Lunch.'

'WHY ARE YOU SO OBSESSED WITH EATING THAT THING!?'

Hitsugaya scowled as Hyorinmaru laughed-

"I see you're finally awake."

-And almost fell out of the bed at the sound of a female voice. Looking to his right the boy saw two beautiful women smiling at him, one with white hair and the other red. He stared.

Seemingly unaffected by the child's staring, the red haired lady continued.

"My name is Erza Scarlet, of the Fairy Tail guild. The woman next to me is Mira-Jane Strauss. My team and I transported you here, to Magnolia Hospital, after finding you injured in a forest East of Magnolia."

Blink. Blink.

'... Huh?'

"And my name is Makarov. I'm the guild master of Fairy Tail."

Once again Hitsugaya almost fell out of the bed at the sound of another voice. He looked over to his right but saw nothing except the two women.

"Down here."

Looking down the boy finally saw the 'guild master'. He was suprised at how small the man was.

'Oh look Master. Someone shorter than you. Now a lepricorn is going to fly through the window screaming about his 'Pot 'o' gold'.'

'Oh look Hyorinmaru, a sword. Now you can go stab yourself with it.'

"May I ask for your name, boy?"

Hitsugaya had to restrain himself from growling at the man for calling him 'boy'.

"Toshiro Hitsugaya. Please address me as Hitsugaya."

Makarov, Erza and Mira each rose a brow at the authority in the child's voice. Obviously, he wasn't quite what they were used to.

"I see. Well then, Hitsugaya, do you know where your family is?"

"I don't have one."

"...Ah. I understand. Well then, this next question may seem a little odd but, have you trained in magic before?"

Hitsugaya blinked.

"Ma... gic? What's magic?"

The three adult's eyes widened slightly at the question, suprised that the boy didn't know what magic was.

"You don't know what magic is?"

The boy shook his head, causing Erza to explain.

"Magic is the physical embodiment of the spirit. When the physical spirit of an organism connects with the spiritual flow of nature, the spirit forms Magic as a product of the connection."

'Like Reiatsu then.'

'Actually, I think this 'Magic' of theirs is more similar to a Zanpakuto.'

'What do you mean?'

'I'll explain later. For now just focus on what these people are saying.'

"Only ten percent of the world's population is able to use Magic. This ten percent is known as Mages or Wizards."

'Wizards? What is this, Harry Potter?'

'Why did I let you watch that human movie, why?'

"There are many different types of Magic. You seem to possess one of them, called Takeover Magic, which is why your arm's appearance has changed."

Hitsugaya blinked.

"Takeover Magic?"

The woman with white hair, Mira, explained.

"Yes. It is the power to, essentially, 'take over' the power of an entity and use it to fight. One can only 'take over' the power of beings that they truly 'know'. In addition to this, Take Over can also be used to control another entity or another entity's abilities. One example of Take Over is Beast Soul, which is used by my brother.'

'I... guess that makes sense.'

Erza stared at Hitsugaya, who stared back. After a few moments, though, the woman smiled slightly.

"You said you have no family, correct?"

"Correct."

"And I'm guessing you have no where to stay?"

Hitsugaya nodded.

"Well then. If that is the case, then why don't you join Fairy Tail?"

The boy blinked.

"... What?"

"I said 'why don't you join Fairy Tail?' We have wizards there who use Take Over Magic and who can teach you how to control it as well as a library so you can learn about other types of magic as well. We have lodgings at the guild, so you can stay there and you can also earn money by going on jobs. If you ask me that's better then sleeping in a forest."

Hitsugaya was lost for words. Join a Magic guild? Become a Wizard? Never in his life had he heard a more rediculous-

'Wait Master. She has a point.'

'What?'

'Think about it. We are obviously no longer in Soul Society meaning the rules and regulations are different here. We know nothing about the customs here or even common knowledge that will probably be necessary in the long run. Plus, once we get back to Soul Society we can tell them all that we learnt about this place.'

'... It is true that there is no such thing as 'Magic' in Soul Society, so knowing about it may give us an advantage in another war.'

'Exactly. While we're here we might as well learn as much as possible. Being in this 'guild' may help us with the process of gathering information and will also give us allies that we can learn from and rely on.'

"... Alright. I'll join your guild."

Erza's smile widened slightly, relief showing clearly in her eyes as Makarov and Mira grinned.

"Once you're ready to move we'll get you marked. For now just rest here."

Nodding to show his understanding, Hitsugaya watched as the three wizards left. What an adventful day.

~~~3~~~W~H~I~T~E~D~R~A~G~O~N~H~I~T~S~U~G~A~Y~A~~~3~~~

Later that night, as Hitsugaya slept blissfully unaware of the squirrel resting on his face, Hyorinmaru looked down at the ice of there inner world. A deep rumple sounded from within the cold depths, impatience evident in it's tone. Bending down, the great dragon nuzzled the ice almost comfortingly.

'Soon, my friend. Soon.'

As the rumbling stopped, the Zanpakuto nuzzled down into his Master and slept.

A.N. Hi! Here's the next chapter. Once again, it isn't that long -mainly because I couldn't think of a better way to end it- but hopefully that hasn't affected the quality. Thank you all for the support on the last chapter. 6 reviews! I was practically bouncing when I saw that the chapter got that many. You guys are amazing! Here are the review responses.

TheTechnoMage: I'm glad the last chapter wasn't disappointing, I was really worried it was. I'm suprised that you did what I'm doing as well, although I'm mainly doing it because I have a week off school and no life :). I was hoping to confuse everyone with the arm-thing, trust me there is a reason for it. Don't ever worry about correcting me when I spell something wrong, because I honestly don't mind. Hopefully I fixed those errors in this chapter. I'm so glad you like my version of a BleachxFairy Tail crossover. I'm trying to make it much different from the ones people usually see, although I'm not sure if I'm doing a good job. The plot will become obvious on a later date, so I wouldn't worry to much about it for now. I haven't decided on whether or not I'm going to have pairings in this story yet. Once I get more into the story I'll set up a poll for it, so don't worry. I'm glad you're enjoying this so far :D.

GirlFish: Don't worry, you'll see. I have no idea when, but you'll see.

Daisy Rhine: In all honesty I have no idea why I included the squirrel-thing. My brain is wierd and it just happened. Since you liked it though I decided to keep it in the story. I'm glad you're looking forward to the plot!

ultima-owner: Yes. I believe it is.

lilnightmare17: I'm glad you like the story so far! It makes me happy to know you think it's cool.

I hope you all enjoyed the chapter. This one was mainly conversation so I'm not sure how well it turned out but I tried my best! Since the squirrel-thing is now a part of the story (I still have no idea where it came from) feel free to give me name suggestions in the comments! Have a nice day!

Ja ne.
