"What do you think you're doing?" Mayuri sneered, glaring ineffectively at the man in front of him. "You're in the way."

"I'm making a balloon animal of course!" Jyuushirou smiled, tying off the end of the balloon. "What should I make?"

"Get out of my way, you twit."

"Hmm, I don't know that one," Ukitake frowned. "How about I make you a Giraffa camelopardalis instead? Perhaps the tiny Lemmus lemmus?"

"Antaresia maculosa."

"Ah, yes, the spotted python. Very popular is Australia and a very popular pet amongst reptile enthusiasts. You never struck me as a snake-man, Mayuri." Ukitake twisted the balloon once, making a head on the otherwise straight balloon. He whipped out a permanent marker and drew a smiley face on it. A few spots were colored and he shoved it into Mayuri's hands. "There you go! I can make a rather clever caterpillar if you change your mind!"

"This is fine!" Mayuri snapped happily.

"Okay," Ukitake frowned a little. "I'll be going then. I have to make Ikkaku a pony and I promised Hitsugaya a 'scary' dragon."

"What? You're still here?" Mayuri frowned.

"Take care!" Ukitake waved, completely unaffected by the man's rudeness.

Mayuri waited until he was out the door before smiling.

"My snake!" He giggled madly, prancing to his office.

No balloon animals were harmed in the making of this fanfiction.
