Lullaby for a stormy night- Vienna Teng (song)

Comfort You

Little child, be not afraid
though rain pounds harshly against the glass
like an unwanted stranger, there is no danger
I am here tonight

Ichigo's POV

"Just like all the other June 17ths, I always think back to my past, the rainy afternoon when my mother was killed. This day always seems to be hard for me, dad, Karin and mostly Yuzu. But this year it is a little different. Rukia looked different that day…"

Little child, be not afraid
though thunder explodes and lightning flash
illuminates your tear-stained face
I am here tonight

Rukia's POV

"That day you just looked so sad. Yet you smile trying to not make any one worried. How many countless time I might slap you that day you would still be sad. There is no way I can't snap you out of this cold, depressing day even if the sun shines, it is a problem, and you can only let me in your deep past to let me help you ease the pain away…"

And someday you'll know
that nature is so
the same rain that draws you near me
falls on rivers and land
on forests and sand
makes the beautiful world that you'll see
in the morning

Ichigo's POV

"I just finished my shower, lying on my bed watching the night sky. I was still half awake at 11o'clock. There was a sudden sound of some one walking in my room. Her gentle ands brushed my bangs away from my face. Her soft, warm hands were comforting in the summer night..."

little child, be not afraid
though storm clouds mask your beloved moon
and its candlelight beams, still keep pleasant dreams
I am here tonight

Rukia's POV

"I crept slowly into Ichigo's room. He was sound asleep and he usually looked peaceful sleeping, but tonight he looked like some thing was irritating him. As if some thing is piercing his abdomen. I suddenly was sitting next to him on his bed, and brushed away his bangs. Stroking his face, he suddenly bolted up and put me into a warm embrace as I was about to leave. "Rukia...Sta…sta...Stay here for a while… please" was all he said…"

little child, be not afraid
though wind makes creatures of our trees
and their branches to hands, they're not real, understand
and I am here tonight

Ichigo's POV

"I don't know why I did that but it felt right. I held on to her tightly, like my life depended on her. "Ok" was all she said hesitantly wrapping her slim arms around my waist, we stayed like that and fell asleep…."

for you know, once even I was a
little child, and I was afraid
but a gentle someone always came
to dry all my tears, trade sweet sleep for fears
and to give a kiss goodnight

Well now I am grown
and these years have shown
that rain's a part of how life goes
but it's dark and it's late
so I'll hold you and wait
'til your frightened eyes do close

Rukia's POV

"No matter what happens, fate will always lead me back to you, Ichigo, you little idiot. My red string of fate is tied onto you tightly... Your tough on the outside but really deep inside you are a little boy trying to be brave. You have matured since I met you. You have changed and knowing that, I kind of have these weird twinges when I'm near your presence, maybe I have feelings more feelings than admiration …"

And I hope that you'll know...
everything's fine in the morning
the rain'll be gone in the morning
but I'll still be here in the morning

The next morning, Isshin went to his son's room to do his routine "Kick-son-awake" routine. In mid way he found Rukia-chan and his little boy snuggling. Grinning stupidly he took out a camera, and snapped at least 20 photos of this little event.
