"Matsumoto, did you finish those reports?" Hitsugaya asked his busty fukutaicho, eying her with consternation.

"Hai, Shiro-kun," Matsumoto giggled back.

After the shock of her positive answer wore off, Hitsugaya bristled, fuming over the use of his hated nickname. She could call him Toshiro, but no one, not even Matsumoto Rangiku got away with calling him 'Shiro' anything. "Matsumoto, I am your superior, and in my office you will address me with respect."

"You want me to undress you? Why didn't you just say so, Shiro-kun?" she asked innocently.

Hitsugaya blushed, thanking the gods no one else was in the office. "Matsumoto! We've been over this. NO one calls me Shiro!"

"Right, of course, Taicho," she conceded. She stood from her spot on the sofa and walked to her taicho's desk. Hitsugaya looked to her warily, suddenly fearing for himself.

"Matsumoto, what are you doing?" he asked, still afraid of the answer he might receive. When she gave no answer, he tried again, "Rangiku?"

She put her hands on his shoulders, rubbing lightly. He relaxed a bit under her touch. Matsumoto began teasing the neckline of his haori and shihakushou with her fingers, sending goose bumps down his arms. He gave an involuntary shiver as she tugged the fabric slowly from his neck, beginning to pull it from his shoulders. Realizing just what she was doing, he grabbed her hands, forcing her to stop.

"Matsumoto, what are you doing?" he asked again, his voice sterner this time. She leaned her mouth close to his ear, causing the goose bumps to break out full force again, before answering.

"I asked if you wanted me to undress you, and you never said no."

An embarrassed cry of "Matsumoto!!" was heard round the division, even reaching as far as the eighth and thirteenth division compounds.
