Ichigo tries to say it was her from yesterday, but Rukia has "Make a scene you are so dead" on her hand. Ichigo and Rukia go outside for a conversation. Rukia is still in sly voice, which she only learnt over night, and Ichigo ask her why she is acting that way. Ichigo also asks about why she isn't in the Soul Society. Rukia replies "because you took most of my powers I couldn't return. Now you must become a soul reaper."
Ichigo says no, because he doesn't want to put his life on for complete strangers. Rukia puts on a skull glove, and runs at Ichigo. Knocking his soul reaper form out. Ichigo freaks out because he sees his normal body just lying there. Rukia tells Ichigo to follow her. Ichigo ask: "How long is it going to take?" Rukia then tells that she, but now Ichigo has orders to attack a upcoming hollow at a park where a boy has passed on yet to the Soul Society.
As they get there the hollow appears and starts to attack the boy. Ichigo jumps the fence, but Rukia tells him to stop. Ichigo is wondering why, and Rukia tells him he is a complete stranger and not save him. Also you can't rescue him because he is in front of you. Also telling him what a Soul Reaper must do, they must treat all souls equally and even if it means, put there life on there line in order to save them. The Hollow closes on the boy and Ichigo cuts it arm off. Rukia ask if he is ready, he says no again. But Ichigo also mentions you are not following your own advice. By mentioning that she didn't think of jobs, when she saved Rukia. The hollow comes back Ichigo slays it and sends the boy to the Soul Society.

Ichigo is OK with that she is safe. Orihime sees Rukia and says hello, and Rukia was like who in the hell are you. Ichigo tells her, then she goes to her sly voice and says "Hello." Orihime's talks about her food as Rukia looks at a bruise on her leg. Rukia gets a closer look, and Orihime asks, "What's wrong." Rukia plays stupid and says nothing. Ichigo offers to walk Orihime home, she refuses.
Rukia is following Ichigo and she ask if Orihime and him are close. He says no, just met her recently. But he says he remembers her from 3 years ago, when her brother Sora was killed in a car crash. That seemed to make Rukia really think. Ichigo then tells her he still could see spiritual figures, but couldn't talk to them yet. Rukia starts to walk away from Ichigo. Ichigo ask, "Where your going." Rukia says "home." Ichigo is like where, and Rukia says, "Do you really wanna know?" Ichigo says no, Rukia says, "Don't ask then." It makes Ichigo mad.
Ichigo is lying in bed, when Yuzu opens the door, without knocking first, asking about her PJ's. Ichigo replies coldly that he doesn't know where they are. Yuzu accusing him of becoming colder and meaner since he started high school. Ichigo then replies in a nicer toner, telling her no he hasn't been meaner and no about the PJ."

Ichigo then cuts its arm, and then Rukia tells him to aim for the head. Ichigo yells at Rukia he'll do it his way. He hits the head of the Hollow, but it was to shallow, because the Hollow got Ichigo's zanpaktou in his heads. Part of his mask breaks and shows Ichigo it is Sora, Orihime's brother. The Hollow retreats.
Ichigo is shaken up from this, and Rukia tells him more about Hollows and why Soul Reapers attack them from behind. One is too reduce injuries and the other is to keep the Hollow's identity a secret.
