Title: Lost, journy to somewhere or nowhere
Description: Ghost and Roses

He was kinda lost, he knew where he was, and how he had ended up there, but he had little idea where in the world this place was and how far from home it was. Cos if he wanted to go home he would likely have to walk it as he only had enough to catch a bus, though it was likely they used a different currency here.
He sighed. It really wasn't his day. yesterday had been really interesting, he had gotten to see a different world! sure that hadn't started out so well with things trying to eat him, but once in the other world it wasn't so bad. He had met a rather interesting lady. they had tea together and went for a swim... he still felt a bit awkward about that. She really could find a better way to keep warm, like build an artificial sun. though he didn't know if her people were capable of that but nothing pointed at them not being able, she did have some funky abilities. eventually she had brought him back to his own world, though leaving him in a city that he didn't recognise.
So here he was in an unknown city likely far from home, he just hoped everyone spoke his language, that would just make his day. There was quite a few ghosts here too, going about their lives like they still had them. It was kinda weird. He tried to ignore them, while also not getting in their way. But ended up bumping into someone...

The purple haired shinigami more commonly known as Rin had just finished running an errand and now had the rest of the day off. Wearing one of her customised shinigami outfits with purple ribbons on the edges and her black boots she walked across the streets slightly bored. Life in the 10th division was currently boring since both captain and vice have not been seen. In the corner of her eye she could see a stall selling poke. She stopped to but some since she needed a restock.
With a pocky stick pointing out of her mouth she continued to walk aimlessly in the small town. She had memories of this place since this was her home before becoming a shinigami. She zoned out and remembered her life in the town she did not notice a person standing in front of her and walked straight into him. Droping one of the boxes of pokey she had in her arms. Sorry, I should really watch where I am going." She said as went to grab the box of pocky that was on the floor.

He had bumped into someone in strange clothes, at first he wasn't sure how to react, He didn't even know if they spoke the same language, until she apologised to him for bumping into him...
"No no I wasn't really watching were I was going either... Sorry."
He watched her bend over to get one of the boxes she dropped, likely as a result of the collision. he remained standing, he figured they'd just end up banging heads if he tried to help... it had happened before. He rubbed his head thoughtfully.
"um are you from around here? I'm kinda lost, a friend of mine dropped me here and I don't know my way home..." Knowing they at least spoke the same language he tried to seek directions for the way home.
He was getting the feeling it wasn't a normal person he was talking to... he hoped it wasn't a spirit who was just that less transparent so he mistook her for a real person... Or she could be special like he was... Or he was just being paranoid... He just so hoped he didn't look like he was talking to himself.

Rin raised one of her purple eyebrows when he told her he wasn't sure where he was. she bit her lip, she hated breaking the new to people that they were dead. It was a job she rarely had to do in life. She thought for a moment on how to break the news to him. She sighed as she moved a stand of her purple hair out of her face, " i really hate to be the person who tells you this.... but your dead." She said, "You see this is where people go when they die. All the people on this town are dead, they are sprits. You could say that this is a second life." she waited to see what his response would be and how he would react to the news.
GHOST - December 21, 2011 09:41 PM (GMT)
He blinked and stared at her befuddled, her response wasn't exactly what he'd expected to hear. He also started holding his breath, waiting till he could hold it no more and then gasped for air.
"Strange if I was dead I would have thought the dependency on air would have gone away. I mean I know I just came from a place which was supposedly hell, but I'm pretty sure I'm not dead yet. hopefully..." he paused
"Err query why did you just say I'm dead? Your not dead yourself are you? Cos then I'd look like I'm talking to myself, or am I in another of those afterlifey places? Cos then I'm further from home then I originally thought..."
He felt really awkward now... He really didn't want to look like he was talking to himself, and she didn't look like the spirits he was used to dealing with/ avoiding. She seemed to real... he was tempted to reach out and poke her to see if his hand would pass through, though he know if he tried to touch her he would, but if she was a spirit and tried to move through him she would, at least if memory served him right. He scratched the back of his head, unsure how to proceed.

Rin stood there frozen as she heard him talk about not being dead but then she snapped back when she heard him mention the word 'hell'. He must have been talking about the hollow world. But how was he able to go there and come here if he wasn't dead?
I said you are dead, because normally people come here when they die." She said while trying to sound normal. She had no idea what to do if he wasn't dead. Should she report him? If so to who and what would she say?
"And yes I am dead. I died many years ago. May I ask how exactly did you get here and to the place you call hell?" She asked curiously.
She wondered what the human world was like now. She missed the place.

This was the first time that Jerome had made his way to the rukongai or at least he thought it was rukongai by the rumors he had heard from it and how the place looked, there was filth sure but Jerome could not help but feel sorry for the poor and helpless, everyday people turn out here unknown at where they are at, a lot of people die here too. He sighed, he was on guard duty, there had been sightings of hollows in the area so he had been sent to investigate.
Sure send the third seat of the 1st division he aint got anything better to do bleh, as if! he despiced the captain commander this was not his kind of work, it was not his deal to deal with the troubles of the rukongai or whatever, these where meant for people who where not nobles, these where community work hours he should not have to deal with this.
Luckily for him this was his first time outside of the seretei, this is one big step for me, but a small step for the kuchiki family. This place was like he was in another world, everything was so dirty and wretched he did not want to think about touching anything.
He then remebered the directions he had been given, or was supposed to remeber but he could not see the place from here, maybe if he got on higher ground, or then he could ask around? He noticed two people up ahead and at least one of them looked decent (Rin) decent enough to know her way around this place? there was just one way to know right?
Ecxuse me my lady but do you perhaps know where i am? i think i might be lost, im looking for a temple do you know anyth... His words stopped in mid sentence when he noticed the guy the girl was having a decent conversation with obviously puzzled about something, he seemed like a spirit, just like the rest though. Are you perhaps new around here?
He certainly seemed to stick out of the inhabitants in this district maybe it was his wide lack of imagination but he for once thought that he might actually be right.
Jerome wore near standard Shinigami outfit, there where a few diffrences, his outfit lacked any sleeves showing his slightly increased build altrough nothing too dramatic, he also wore the kuchiki hair ornament, a few stripes above his left ear, this hair was colored blue while the rest of his hair was black. He also wore a scraf around his neck that reached down to his waist in one end, truly glamorous!

Really this just wasn't his day, though nothing truly terrible had happened, or at least he felt nothing truly terrible had happened. So he was just as far away from home as he was before, he felt like one of the sliders....
"ok I was chased by a white monster thing and fell through a blackish rip in reality that another was coming out off. So then I land in a cold desert instead, ok my day had gotten weirder then usual. She then this strange lady called Alruna Espinosa La Primera Espada, you know that actually sounds kinda Spanish. Well she turns up and demanded to know what I was doing and how I got there, naturally I told her as she at the time was quite intimidating. after that she informed me I was in a land of the dead, um... Hueco Mundo I think she called it, she also referred to it as hell and with scenery that bleak I don't blame her... and well we talked a bit then she brought me here, then after she enjoyed some sunlight we said our goodbyes and she left. I kinda think I know how Gulliver felt in his travels, though he ended up a nut job" He explained, doing his best to summarise while giving the important names he remembered.
"just how many lands of the dead are there?" he asked concerned, then looking to the new comer. "um hi, yeah you could say I'm new, though only visiting really... for now anyway, I hope."
(OOC: sorry for the incredibly late reply, got busy and then completely forgot about this >.<)

From what he said, he was definitely a human and he did go to the hollow world since he mentioned the word Espada. rin had no idea what she was going to do with him. The someone else appeared, this time a shinigami asking for directions. She could tell that he was from the first squad, maybe she should just hand the human over to him and then he can give it to the captain commander.
"The temple is in the other direction." She said, to the shinigami
"There are two spirit worlds, the one you mentioned and this one." She said.

Jerome had not over heard the conversation prior to joining this merry bunch since he found it rude when people would overhear someone elses conversation, regardless Jerome knew when there was something off the trail this boy seemed different somehow, as stated before.
He payed more attention to his words, especially the latter, "um hi, yeah you could say I'm new, though only visiting really... for now anyway, I hope." what? he was visiting, either this boy thoughthe was making a funny joke and thought that he was still alive and had no idea that he was in soul society or then... he was alive? Jerome guessed the latter, it would make more sense since his clothes where more refined and well modern? altrough Jerome had never paid a visit to the mortal world (execpt during his academy days, at night) he was quite certain that this boy was an execption to the rukongai rule.
your not from around here are you? the only possible option was that this boy had come from the mortal world a false assumption im afraid, there are in fact three spirit worlds, this is what you humans would call heaven i suppose, then there is Jikoku (hell) and third but not least there is a white world filled with mostly sand and minus souls or hollows Byakuya had told him all he needed to know of the hollow world, and well hell was common sense more or less. Jerome had while talking taken out some paper and pens from his backpack, and made an illustration of his explanation, the picture was quite plain and simple and by no means a master piece, one could say his illustration was rather childish, with the rainbow colors and all, then again he was only 4..5 feet tall.
Altrough his hair seemed black it was more dark purple than anything though it was kinda hard to tell apart, either way the little shinigami (whom hated to be called/seen as a child) nodded to rin looking more serious now what do you think? he off course spoke of the illustration that he had made on the block of paper, he seemed rather proud of his work though.

"Nope, I'm from Sydkey, it's umm... quite a ways from here, I guess." He stopped to listen to what the guy had to say, it brought to light a few things, he seemed reluctant to speak of the world he (shade) had just come from, [b]Shade was tempted to push for info to find out why but he decided not to as that might be rude, and he didn't want to offend his new acquaintances and he didn't want to get asked too many questions.
"Hey while I'm here, wouldn't mind giving me a tour?" Shade asked hesitantly looking between the two, he wasn't sure how he was going to get home but while that was worked out there shouldn't be much wrong with taking a look around.
