Vague I think. Started out with one thing, I even deleted it from the site. Why? Because I'm picky! I didn't like it to be honest. ;P

This one's way better I think.

Enjoy.

A Moment of Truth

By: Youkai Hime90

Tatsuki loves how Orihime is everything she isn't. She loves the fact that Orihime is so full of grace, so full of class. She loves how her smile, full of love and utter forgiveness, almost blinding in its brilliance, makes even the sun doubt its own glory. To put it simply, Tatsuki loves Orihime.

"Oi, Inoue!"

The brunette blinks, and out of the corner of her eyes she glances Orihime pause in mid-step, ears perked up at the sound of a familiar voice. Her lips tremble, as she presses her school books tighter against her chest, a single tear of pure, unadulterated joy careening down her cheek. Orihime drops her books and takes off down the street, like she has nothing to lose and everything to gain.

(Kurosaki-kun!)

Like a melancholy bullet straight to the heart.

Tatsuki stands there, tongue tied, scraping at her leg with the edge of her shoe, uncomfortable. She realizes something that causes her entire reality to come crashing down around her. She hadn't thought she had anything left to shed, she thought she'd cried her heart out, but it was only because she was watching Orihime, wonderful, beautiful Orihime run away from her and straight into Ichigo's waiting arms that Tatsuki realized…

She was potentially if selfishly, absolutely, heartbroken.

Tatsuki loves to hate and hates to love that sparkle Orihime gets in her eyes every time she sees Ichigo smile.
