CHAPTER 1: UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT

After a hard battle with a highly specified tough hollow, Ichigo returned to his body that lies limply on his bed. The moment he entered it, his shirt was soaked in blood. He let out a small grunt when he felt the stinging sensation of his bare skin touching the cloth of his orange tee-shirt. Ichigo struggled to get some medicine in the clinic but unluckily before reaching the wooden door, he lost consciousness and collapsed. Luckily, he was caught by Rukia who looks like damsel in great distress.

The hollow gave orange-top's body strong blows that left deep cuts across his chest. Ichigo's arms were also badly bruised. Deep crimson was rushing violently in every wound. Rukia placed Ichigo gently on his bed before rushing to the clinic in search for any bandages. She quickly returned with a medical kit on one hand and a medicine bottle on the other. Rukia hurriedly cleaned and put dressings around the victim's wounds. She had managed to stop the bleeding but a high dosage of medicine was needed to stabilize his condition (she used shun-po to get this medicine from Uruhara's shop :p).

In Ichigo's condition, it'll be hard for him to swallow the medicines in tablet form. So Rukia reached the decision of helping him with the use of the concept "Mouth-to-Mouth"She put the tablet in his mouth. And filling her mouth with water, she decisively leaned and kissed him. She emptied the contents in her mouth and transferred it to his.

Hours passed and there's no improvement in Ichigo's situation. Once in a while, he groaned, whimpering because of the pain. Since the day neared its end, the city's contour was glamorously seen outside the window. The raven-haired lady was worriedly waiting for her patient to wake up. She sat silently. But because her body was enveloped by fatigue, Rukia's eyes fell heavily sending her into a deep slumber.

...0…………..0………………0……………

Ichigo Kurosaki slowly opened his eyes. He scrabbled hard as he pulled himself to his elbows. He groggily sat up.

The substitute death god was surprised seeing his body half naked and his wounds carefully covered with bandages.

A smile ran across his face. He saw Rukia sitting beside his bed, fast asleep. Seeing her eyes puffed and tears welling up in her eyes, he gently touched her face.

Kuchiki Rukia startled awake. She saw that familiar face smiling at her.

"Yo!" Ichigo said. He flinched a little as a pang of pain cross his vein. "You were crying while asleep huh?"

"Ichigo!!" Rukia leapt with happiness and embraced him. "I couldn't forgive myself for letting you fight alone…. I'm sorry!!" She had managed to squeak in between sobs.

"Ouch! Not so tight!! My wounds are not fully healed you know." Carrot head slightly blushed in the contact. "And talk softly. Kon might kill me if we awaken him."

Rukia didn't move. Her head was buried on his shoulder. Crying, maybe? Ichigo looked at her slumped form with inquisitive eyes. He was deeply puzzled on why the petite shinigami reacted this way. It was very different from the way she treated him the first time they met.

Though there was a sudden bomb of silence, it was enough for him to be enveloped in her tight embrace. Out of the blue he said in a flat tone, "You're weird." Very weird indeed, that he felt butterflies fluttering in his stomach.

Hearing this, Rukia sat straight. Her hands curled into a fist and raised it up leveling her face. "Ichigo!!!"

She shot him a dead glare. "Why are you so dense about people's feelings..." the black haired lady fought the tears that threatened to fall, but she failed. "You… you imbecile!!" she yelled.

Ichigo blinked. It was the first time he saw Rukia crying because of some bickering. Feeling guilty, he wiped her tears and said for the second time, "weird." He nodded to himself. "Very weird."

Rukia lowered her head. She was annoyed about the way Ichigo stared at her. She hastily stood up and was about to go inside the closet when all of a sudden, Ichigocringed in pain.

He tumbled down the icy floor, clutching his chest.

"Ichigo?" Rukia asked anxiously. "What's the matter?"

"Um, I'm ok… just … go…" Rukia was surely not convinced by Ichigo response so he quickly added, "You made me drink pain relievers, right? So maybe it's just the side effects of the medicines."

Rukia's face flamed red as she remembered the tablets.

Orange-top was still squirming because of his condition. His body…. His body was… all of a sudden…. in heat.

As Rukia's trembling hands patted his shoulders gently, Ichigo automatically gripped it. This man is really confusing Rukia. "What's the matter?" Eyes that were deep indigo looked at eyes that were reddish-brown. Emotions that these eyes mirrored were pure confusion.

Suddenly Ichigo felt an urge for something . . . . . 'What the hell's happening to me?!' he thought. His grip on her wrist tightened. His whole body felt warm, his heart skipped a beat and butterflies are forming in his stomach. Ichigo suddenly feels a need of her . . . an aroused urge of wanting her.

Not minding the pain, Ichigo swiftly pulled her into his arms, laying her petite body carefully in his bed.

As amazed by his action as Rukia was, Ichigo leaned and kissed her tenderly.

Rukia reluctantly allowed the trespassing tongue and let it entangled with hers. The contact was so immense, so pure.

The body contact, the warm breaths and the naughty fingers sent shivers down her spine.

At that moment they felt their hearts beat as one.

Rukia thought that it might be the drug that was affecting Ichigo's mentality and behavior. On the other hand, Ichigo can only think of the foreign substance injected to him by Urahara just that morning.

'Dammit!! Is it an aphrodisiac? A sedative?' His mind was swirling. "The hell! He used me as a guinea pig!!"

Although aware, the brown-eyed guy cannot control himself. His mouth was driving deeply, wanting her more.

Rukia couldn't move beneath him. His weight made it hard for her to do soThe petite Kuchiki squirmed hard to break free but it's no use. Ichigo didn't budge and continued what he's doing.

Rukia's eyes widened as carrot-head's hand stopped short and slid it under her skirt. She squeezed his shoulders as electrifying waves traveled her body. His hand slowly slithered in her thighs . . . easing her legs into position. Ichigo gently straddled her beneath him.

Ichigo's lips parted hers. Both of them gasped for air. He was breathing heavily but nevertheless, his lips continued to move, slowly going down . . . to her chin, to her neck, down….

Rukia clutched a handful of her lover's orange colored hair and let out a low moan. She bit her lower lip and let out a small gasp as Ichigo glide slowly enteringher.

Ichigo Kurosaki reached NIRVANA.

The occurring event drove both of them crazy.

None of them can stop because neither of them tried to. It was as if some force drew them together . . . some unstoppable feeling, hidden deep in their hearts.

The contact was pure. The kiss was not a sloppy one. But neither of these beautiful creations was sure if the other one understand what's happening.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

"It's almost 10. . . Why are you still awake?" a cat purred.

The owner of Urahara store, former 12th squad captain was profoundly brooding.

"I'm just wondering… what Ichigo's doing right now."

"Huh?" Youruichi walked around Urahara. "What about him?"

Kisuke chuckled. "I gave him a shot of my new invention this morning!" he smiled proudly.

"You injected the boy with a new formula?"

"Yeah" the mischievous smile never faded on his face. "It's like an energy drink! It perks up a soul and gives it endurance to withstand battle. It's effect lasts for 20hrs."

Yoruichi stared at him quizzically. "So . . . tell me about the side effects."

Sandal-hat nervously laughed. "No side effects but. . ." an air of seriousness suddenly arose. "When overdosed…well, never mind. It's not that bad."

"I doubt it." The cat teased. "I know you Kisuke. You're worried. So tell me what will happen if overdosed."

The owner tensely fanned himself. "Well, if overdosed it triggers your deepest wants."

"And?"

A trace of sweat was seen in his face, and he chuckled. He fanned quickly. "Well, you see, Ururuu was the one who measured the amount of the drug . . . and…it's way too much."

"Overdosed!" the black cat mewed.

Seeing her worried, he immediately added, "Never fear! I'm sure Ichigo's deepest wants are …

…to eliminate hollows!" he patted Yoruichi.

The cat curled into a ball and said, "Ohhh... Is that so? I thought you'd say that it's Rukia Kuchiki."

Urahara's eyes glistened with excitement. "Rukia lives in his room, right?"

The two good old friends laughed.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Two madly blushing people were breathing heavily.

A soft navy blue blanket covered their sweat-damped bodies.

They lay back on the bed and were silently looking at the ceiling for about half an hour now. As if this was the given time for them to contemplate on what they've done.

Ichigo was stealing glances at the lady lying beside him, and vice versa.

Bothered by the intensity of silence, Ichigo gathered all the courage he had left and broke the ice. "Ah… Rukia… " still flustered about his crazy wild antics earlier, he stuttered in every word.

The black haired lady mutely lay beside him. Then she spoke, "What happened is my fault. I'm the girl and I always have the option of saying NO."

"Huh?" her partner looked at her in the most perplexed expression. "But I didn't even ask you… I…"

She cut him off and said, "Nah, just think that nothing happened. In fact we can say . . .. We just tasted each another." She glumly laughed. "Just think that they were things a man would probably do when he thought he was about to die, you know."

She covered her face with the blanket and soberly muttered to herself, "Yah, there is no love in that act."

"Ha?" Ichigo, propped by an elbow, removed the blanket off Rukia's face. He looked at her but she was avoiding his eyes.

"Hey." He poked her cheeks. "What nonsense are you talking about?" Ichigo pinched her cheeks. "I said I'm sorry about what happened to the dress Ishida made for you. I'll let him repair it sometime."

The dress Uryuu made was ripped off by Ichigo so that there will be no hindrance prior to their earlier 'activity'. (Yemachan giggles)

The younger sister of Hisana ignored him. She looked away and firmly said, "What I said is no nonsense. Let me repeat it to you... let us just pretend that nothing happened... " She sighed heavily and whispered. "Let us forget about this night."

With one hand holding the blanket that covered her petite body, Rukia motioned to get up. However, Ichigo quickly pinned her down.

The small lady was surprised on his actions. Ichigo irritably curled his hands into a fist.

No matter how Rukia avoided his eyes, Ichigo managed to nail her with his auburn eyes. Their faces were so close creating a tension.

"Rukia." (italicized, para effect, again! XD) His voice was strained. The way he said her name made Rukia's heart beat faster. "I. . . " Kuchiki looked at his bright red face. "I never regret what happened."

His brown eyes intently looked at her and seriously whispered, "And never will I regret this for a lifetime."

For a moment he let his head rest on her shoulder. His face was buried in the fluffy pillow. Rukia didn't complain about his weight. She blankly stared at the ceiling and tried to absorb what Ichigo said.

Out of the blue, Carrot-top murmured something. His voice was muffled because of the pillow but Rukia was able to discern the three lovely words uttered.

The raven-haired lass felt tears welling in her eyes. She smiled. She couldn't explain the kind of joy she felt.

She slowly slid her arms around his neck. Ichigo tilted his head to look at her. He tucked her hair and slightly lifted her chin. He leaned in and kissed her passionately.

Another interaction was made, in Ichigo's room, under this beautiful night and star-strewn sky.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

"Onii-san!" Yuzu called her bro. "C'mon down!" She was in the kitchen preparing their breakfast.

Ichigo and Rukia quickly sat up. Both of their hands automatically held each the edge of the blanket pulling it to serve as a protection for their bodies.

Ichigo was secretly thankful that his father wasn't giving him any good morning kick lately.

"Onii-san!!!"

They glanced at each other and blushed. Ichigo cleared his throat.

Suddenly, the closet opened. "Ichigo…" the rag doll stretched his teddy arms and yawned. "I heard low moans and other weird sounds last night. Was it. . ." Kon froze so as Ichigo and Rukia.

Kon's gazed bounced from Rukia to Ichigo and then to Ichigo going to Rukia.

"Nee-san?" he cupped his hand to his mouth. "Ichigo!!!!!!!!" he snarled. "What the hell did you do to Nee-san?!!" Kon started blabbering.

"Onii-san?" Yuzu started ascending the stairs. Her footsteps snapped all of them about the risk of the situation.

Ichigo and Rukia quickly collected their garments. Ichigo put on his jogging pants and slid Kon in a box. Since Rukia's dress was brutally torn, she used the blanket to cover her body instead. She was about to stand when Ichigo swiftly picked her up in bridal style and gently laid her inside her 'room'. Before closing his closet, He gave her a quick kiss.

"Onii-san?" Yuzu looked at him curiously. Ichigo was leaning in his closet door, panting.

"Yo!" he flashed a smile.

"You're late. Breakfast's ready!" She plainly said.

"Ah.. Ok... ok..." he playfully pushed his sister out his room. "I'll be down in no time!"

"Nii-san…." She pouted.

"Yes?" Ichigo was still grinning.

"You're very happy today." With that said Yuzu marched down.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Ichigo closed the door behind him.

"I………chi…….go!" Kon escaped from the box. "How dare you do that while I'm sleeping? How dare you touch Nee-san!!!! What have you done?" tears were streaming down his black marble eyes. He cried so hard and whimpered more curses.

"Um… Ichigo?" Rukia opened the closet, still wrapped in his blanket.

"Nee-san!!!" Kon exclaimed. He leapt up and aimed for Rukia's Valley of Gods…. But before he can do that, Ichigo blocked him and led Rukia to the bathroom, closing the door behind THEM.

Kon was dumbstruck, (well, so was Rukia) "Ichigo!!!!! Are you going to bathe with her?????" he pounded the door. "I'll report this to Byakuya-sama!!!!!!"

"DAMMIT!!!!"
