"Hmm I see… it's a good plan also, you truly never know what dangers lurk in the darkness." Hitsugaya said under his breath to himself. "Well then, there's nothing here for us now. Please tell your Father and brothers I said hello and look forward to seeing you in times of need…" He said.
"Uhm yea sure. No problem, you guys be safe going back ok?" Yugi said softly as well. Hitsugaya nodded and his team vanished into the sky. "Well that was something unusual," Kiir commented. "Yea for real, I wonder if that Toshiro Hitsugaya guy was telling the truth or not though?" Yugi said back. "Dunno, but we can ask when we get back… I'm starving over here!?" Kiir yelled. Yugi giggled behind him," Alright alright, let's head back then."
As they headed into the mansion, Yugi pulled his coat off & hung it in the closet nearby. Kiir, as usual, went straight for the food in the kitchen that Damien, the house tenant, was preparing. As Yugi headed upstairs towards his & Edward's shared room, Yugi stopped into the 3rd floor library to peak inside. "Ed are you in here?" he asked. Yugi lightly knocked on the doors till Edward slung them open and scared the life out of Yugi. "Jesus Ed!? What the hell did you do that for!?" he yelled. Edward laughed," sorry sport didn't mean to do that on purpose ya know heh heh… You wanted to talk for a minute?" he asked. "Yeah, its about something me and Kiir bumped into at the part earlier… Can I talk to you inside please?" Yugi asked with nervousness. "Sure, c'mon in & take a seat. I'll ask Damien to send up some tea okay?" Ed insisted. Yugi shook his head as he walked through and sat down by the desk.
"Now, tell me what's on your mind kiddo…"
"Well, we ran into a hollow earlier. But as we were fighting it, a group of strange people showed up out of nowhere and defeated it for us. They were dressed like past samurai and called themselves Soul Reapers… Who were they? Where were they from? Who sent them? & why are they here Ed?" Yugi asked franticly.
"Whoa whoa, slow down okay? Hmmm Soul Reapers huh? I've never seen one before but the Old Man has told me tons about them…" Ed explained.
"Well? What did he say?" Yugi asked.
"He told me they were from the Soul Society, kinda like our picture of Heaven ya know? They depict themselves as what we as humans know as "grim reapers"; the carriers for the dead to leave the living world to enter the spirit world…" "Also, they help lost spirits rest in peace eternally & eliminate evil spirits like hollows. Do you know what ranks you were dealing with by chance Yugi?" Ed asked calmly.
"Uhm I think two of them were 1st Lieutenants and one was a Captain Toshiro Hitsugaya of squad 10. He said he knew Dad pretty well. Also, wanted me to say hi and we might cross paths soon in the future when needed…" Yugi said with worry on his breath while looking down.
"Huh, really now… Well if the Old man knows him personally, you really have nothing to worry about ok Yugi? But then again, I don't blame ya," he said. "Just like us, their job is to help maintain the balance in the world ya know? To keep bad things from happening to innocent people. Let's face it Yugi, there's a lot of stuff out there that can't be explain thoroughly yet or just too complicated for humans to understand yet. They're just not ready; so until they're ready we'll keep a eye out for them in the end till then okay?" Edward explained softly to his brother. "For now, rest assure these soul reapers are our allies, & not foes ok? But, if you're more interested in them you should talk to the Old Man about it. After all, he's been around much longer than we have heh…" Edward said. "Yea I know, but I'm kinda scared of how Father will react when I tell him about this though Ed… Plus, I haven't quite adjusted to his presence yet either," Yugi said calmly.
