A/N: I wanted to do slash, because Bleach fandom lacks it, but I was stuck for ideas, so I hit Moonsheen up for a pairing and she gave me this.

"Blood and Hair"

.

.

Blood flecks Ukitake's hair as he doubles over, coughing. A violent fit, but nothing he is unused to. Byakuya stands beside him, expression bland as ever, waiting for it to end as Ukitake clings to his sleeve for support. When Ukitake straightens up, Byakuya resumes their earlier conversation without pause. Ukitake's not sure if this is out of politeness or apathy, but it almost amuses him either way.

When Byakuya pauses in expectation of a reply, Ukitake pushes his hair out of his eyes and laughs, leaning on the other's shoulder. For some reason, he thinks he might be happy.
