A/N- Um, I seem to have gotten my "groove" back. Please take heed of the warnings in the summary. And forgive me for any OOCness. This is my first Bleach fanfic and I tried my best. I don't really like it but eh. Whatever. I don't particularly care if I get reviews; I wouldn't review this either. I just wanted to write this since it wouldn't stop poking at me.

Disclaimer- I don't own Bleach.


A Slight Problem

A loud crash was heard and Rikichi wondered if perhaps he should just go in. There was a groan and he really wondered if he should interrupt and hand them the papers he held in his arms. Biting his lower lip, he debated. Kuchiki-taichou would probably kill him (or at least give him that Look of his) if he entered in the office unannounced but he was told the papers were important and they needed to be sign right away. Abarai-fukutaichou was in there as well and he knew that they were at it again, judging from the sounds.

"Hey." The voice startled him and he turned to see Yanagi-san (the Fourth chair of the Sixth Division) standing there with an eyebrow raised at him.

"Ah, Yanagi-san." he said with a smile. "I didn't see you there."

"Obviously." she said with an amused look before her attention was placed upon the door. A thump could be heard and Rikichi wondered what was going on in his fellow division member's mind. The older-looking shinigami had a weird look on her face before she turned to him. "So how long have you been standing here?"

"A few minutes now." he replied, shifting the papers so he could hold on to them properly.

"Why don't you just knock?"

"I, uh, I don't want to disturb them." he said, cheeks turning pink.

"I'm pretty sure they know you're out here." Yanagi-san pointed out. Once she said it, Rikichi realized that she was probably right. After all, Kuchiki-taichou was skilled enough to sense their presence. The other shinigami rolled her eyes before raising a hand. "I'll do it for you then."

Rikichi watched her knock on the door, saying rather loudly, "Kuchiki-taichou, Abarai-fukutaichou, we were wondering if you can stop for a few minutes to sign some papers."

There was silence and a few rustling sounds before someone cleared their throat and said, "Come in."

The female shinigami jerked her head in the direction of the office. "Go on in then, Rikichi."

"Ah, thank you, Yanagi-san!" he said with a smile.

She ruffled his hair. "It's just Kotori, alright?"

The boy only smiled at her before entering the office. The woman watched him before sighing, running a hand through her hair before walking off.

"You wanted to see them making out, didn't you," came the whispered comment of her zanpakutou.

"Shut up, Tsukikage."

"I do agree with you. It would be hot."

"Shut. Up."
