Espirito a la Fuga
A/N: Hi guys! This is my first UlquiorraxOrihime ficlet and I'm quite excited I have to say.
This pairing caught me by surprise at first but I immediately fell in love with it. And so this brain-child was born, I'm not sure how long I plan to make it but I have big plans for this story…yes very big plans, which make my head hurt thinking about them!
This deals with the Arrancar Arc, and if you aren't there yet in the manga or haven't reached anything of the sort in the anime there will be some spoilers.
Well, that's all; I hope you guys enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Oh yes, rated T for some themes and Noitora's potty mouth
Chapter 1- Goodbye Halcyon Days
"Stay here and behave." Orihime Inoue echoed dully, trapped inside the white room that was her prison. She gazed out the window at the strange crescent moon that was the only source of light in this place. She gripped the hem of her white dress, fisting the silken material in her palms. Rage like nothing she had ever felt coursed through her veins.
She was a prisoner. A prisoner in this white palace which was anything but the purity its colour symbolized.
"Unexpectedly it suits you."
Her grip on her dress loosened as her thoughts strayed to her kidnapper, but if anything her inner rage intensified.
"Stay here and behave."
That was what he had said to her several hours ago (was it hours? She had no idea of the time in this place). As though she were an animal.
She chided herself at getting so worked up over the inevitable.
Calm down Orihime, calm down, anger isn't healthy remember?
But feeling this anger made her feel healthier than she had felt in years…
She shook her head, how could she think such thoughts?!
She stiffened, but didn't turn around.
"It's time for your dinner."
Breathing in, Orihime turned to face the Arrancar that had entered her room. Monster.
Ulquiorra stood a few feet away from the orange-haired girl, his arms folded, and his face impassive. Expressionless. She couldn't comprehend it. She hadn't noticed the tray being rolled in by a lesser female Arrancar.
She raised her eyes to meet his green ones. "Eat." He ordered blandly, arms still folded.
"No thank you" she began politely "I am not-"
"You willeat woman" Ulquiorra cut in "Aizen-sama has ordered me to ensure you eat your meals, he does not wish for you to die before he makes use of your abilities."
Orihime's smile dropped. How could this…thing…be so…so cold?
The black haired Arrancar indicated to the plate of bread, rice and assorted vegetables.
"I don't need it." Orihime said thinly, all friendliness gone.
Ulquiorra stared at her for a few moments, before turning back to the servant.
"Leave." He said emotionlessly. The servant, looking quite relieved, bowed and retreated.
Once the door was shut. Ulquiorra looked back, fixing those green orbs on her. Orihime's breath hitched in her throat. He wouldn't hurt her to-?
Suddenly she felt herself being propped into the chair by her table, before she even realized she was being moved. The monster stood next to her, placing the plate in front of her.
"Woman" his tone had not changed but Orihime detected a splinter of iciness beneath his words "I have been given permission to use force if you refuse to cooperate, so you can either eat the food of your own volition or you can have it forced down your throat."
Orihime glared at him with all she could muster, before grabbing the chop sticks off the plate and began skewering vegetables and placing them slowly in her mouth. After eating about three vegetables and 2 pockets of rice she threw the chop sticks down on the plate.
Ulquiorra stared at her. It looked as though he was resisting the urge to roll his eyes, but of course he couldn't do anything to her because technically she had eaten.
"Fine." He said tonelessly "Don't expect help from anyone later tonight if you get hungry."
He picked up her plate and placed it back on the tray, and soundlessly began wheeling it back out.
"Jerk." Orihime muttered.
His pace slowed, before continuing again, shutting the door behind him.
As soon as he had exited Orihime picked up her chair and hurried over to her barred window, and placed it directly underneath. Stepping up she wasted no time in inserting her fingers to the back of her throat and hurling up the food through the bars. Once she was done, she wiped her mouth and climbed back down.
I don't need their fake hospitality…
Ulquiorra walked swiftly down the main hall, after returning the still full plate to the kitchen. To say he was annoyed would be an over exaggeration…he was just a little ticked at the human girl's boisterous attitude.
What a firm-minded, stubborn woman…
Still, showing such disrespect was disrespecting Aizen-sama…he'd have to be sure to remind her of that the next time he saw her…
Ulquiorra stopped short. The person owning the voice was most likely the person he had the least patience for right now. He looked around.
A lanky, greasy-haired man with a malicious grin leaned against the wall.
"Noitora." Ulquiorra said tonelessly, hoping that would be enough to shut the pathetic piece of trash up.
"How was she doing, that Pet-sama?"
At his lack of reaction, Noitora's grin, if possible widened.
"I know what you are up to" he chided with an annoying superior smirk "You've been ordered to look after the woman, right?" his eyes gleamed with glee "I'm so envious."
If Ulquiorra had been human, he was sure he'd be feeling nausea at that moment.
"Sooo," the black-haired Arrancar continued goading him "just how much did you 'teach' her?"
"Disgusting." The teenager replied, turning away, and shoving his hands in his pockets.
"Don't be so pissed off." Noitora was suddenly in his face, he was getting tired of this.
"I'm just asking if you did a good job, no?" he asked, winking suggestively.
"You are curious in a human." Ulquiorra said with disdain "How very small-minded of you."
"What did you say?"
Ulquiorra mentally rolled his eyes; he didn't have time to play games. "I have a meeting with Aizen-sama, excuse me."
He side-stepped the now scowling man and continued walking down the long hall.
"Oi Ulquiorra!" Noitora called after him "What didja mean when ya said disgusting? Ya mean disgusting as in she's disgusting or her pussy's disgusting? Either way it don't matter to me!"
The black-haired espada just continued walking. "Oi! Ulquiorra, oi! Damn you for always ignoring me!"
"Aizen-sama." Ulquiorra bowed low on one knee, showing his father and leader the respect he deserved.
Aizen smiled as he regarded his favourite Arrancar. "Ah, Ulquiorra come in."
The espada stood up from the door and walked over to stand before where his master reclined lazily in his white chair.
"Report on our guest, Ulquiorra?" Aizen questioned lightly.
"Yes, sir. The human girl has settled into her room and has eaten the meal required of her." Ulquiorra recited.
Aizen's hand tapped the arm of his chair. "I see did you, ah, have to use a little force to get her to eat?"
The espada shook his head. "She was stubborn at first but eventually relented. I did not allow her to disrespect you Aizen-sama."
Aizen's smile widened. "Ah, but Ulquiorra do not worry over such trivial matters, let the girl have a bit of fun alright?"
Ulquiorra stared, as if contemplating his master's words, then bowed low.
"As you wish Aizen-sama."
"Do you like her?"
Ulquiorra looked up into the amused eyes of his master. The corners of his mouth lifted ever so slightly. "Would you prefer a lie or the truth?"
The rich melody of his master laughing echoed throughout the chamber.
"Speak your mind Ulquiorra."
"She is nothing more than a talking pile of trash, both stubborn and insubordinate."
"Oh? I was under the impression she was a sweet, mild-mannered young lady."
"Apparently not, when something angers her."
"Oh dear," Aizen remarked lightly "well, you'd best try not to anger her when you fetch her later for her bath."
Were he a lesser Espada he would have shuddered. "Yes, Aizen-sama although-" he paused, and an almost grouchy look flashed across his face "Noitora did seem particularly interested in her-"
"I am quite sure he is, but I would only trust you, Ulquiorra, with the handling of the human."
The Arrancar repressed a sigh, and bowed again. "Hai, Aizen-sama."
"You're dismissed Ulquiorra, time for the girl to have her bath, I assume you have the necessary requirements?"
"Good, now if you could actually call in Noitora on your way out that will be all."
"Hai." Ulquiorra retreated out, steeling himself for having to deal with trash yet again.
"You called Aizen-sama?" the long-haired Arrancar slithered through the doors.
Aizen nodded calmly. "I have a very important mission to assign to you Noitora."
"Oh?" Noitora's pupils dilated with excitement "Which would be?"
Aizen regarded him lightly for a moment, before saying. "You have taken a liking to the girl, I'm correct?"
"Quite so, my master." He unconsciously licked his lips.
"Well, I'm more than sure that at this very moment in time, the Shinigami boy Kurosaki Ichigo ad his friends are preparing to come rescue the girl, your mission is to go into the human world and put a stop to their little rescue operation.
But-" Aizen held up a finger "-be stealthy. A surprise attack would work best on Kurosaki Ichigo, and just to be clear I want him alive once you're done with him, am I understood? I want them all alive."
Aizen smiled again.
"Good. But that's not to say you can't…ah…have a little fun. Oh and remember Noitora-there is more than one way to destroy a man."
Noitora bared his teeth in a hackled grin; his master was so good to him.
"I understand perfectly master."
"Good, now be ready to leave immediately."
Noitora bowed low before his creator, che, who wanted to baby-sit a little girl, when he had the particular opportunities that he did?
To be continued
A/N: Yup got big plans for this story…biiig plans. This first chapter is just the ground laying chapter for much bigger things, so the next ones will be more exciting! My Fic branches off a bit from the sequences in the manga, but it will still follow the storyline.
Oh and be warned people this story is going to deal with some pretty graphic and mature things-but it's gonna be worth it!
Hehe, I'm having so much fun writing Noitora he's so demented! Oh yes, sorry if Orihime seems a bit OOC in this chap, but seriously, if you were captured and imprisoned, I doubt you'd be acting all passive the way Hime-chan's been acting in the manga, but she'll get back to her old self I promise!
Besides, Ulquiorra brings out Orihime's kickass side…you all know which little manga scene I'm talking about :)
