A/N: You HAVE to admit. The school pants the guys wear for uniforms ARE extremely small.
"You know, I've always wondered something…" The auburn-haired teenager muttered to the group, cutting the silence that was bestowed upon them. It was approximately the end of the lunch period, and Orihime Inoue was finishing her lunch on the roof. She wasn't alone, for she was eating lunch with the usual Bleach gang, along with Tatsuki Arisawa, her best friend.
"What's been on your mind Orihime?" Tatsuki asked, taking a bite out of her sandwich. She didn't look too terribly interested in what she was about to hear.
"Well you know the school uniforms?" The healer asked generally, slightly hoping someone would look somewhat curious about she was going to talk about.
"What about them?" Ichigo Kurosaki, substitute Soul Reaper, asked her quietly, eating his onigiri slowly, only looking at the ground. Her heart fluttered a bit at the fact he was actually listening to her.
"I've always wondered why they seem so small…" She pondered in very deep thought, putting her finger on her chin.
"Wait… W-What seems so small?" The karate-involved friend asked her busty buddy. Her eyebrows were raised, now definitely inquiring what she was thinking.
"The guys pants." She spoke firmly. "They look very uncomfortable." She folded her arms under her large chest, scrunching her eyebrows.
Rukia, who had been drinking a juice box, spit out all the liquid contents out of her mouth, and proceeded to burst into laughter. Chad, which is no surprise, remained silent, and Ishida's face now sported a lovely shade of red. Ichigo and Tatsuki were left with their mouths hanging open, with Ichigo also having hints of pink tugging at his cheeks.
"I don't understand how you guys can be so okay with it!" Orihime threw her hands into the arm, flabbergasted by the odd uniform.
"I-Inoue…" Was all the substitute Soul Reaper could mutter. Not that he wanted to respond to a bizarre thought such as hers.
"They just seem to small!" She pouted, still questioning the logic of small pants. She changed her gaze to her crush, feeling her face heat up a bit. "What do you think Kurosaki-kun? Are your pants too small for you?" That question only made Rukia Kuchiki laugh harder, and Ichigo's face even more red.
"I-Inoue, I-I don't think that's the best question to ask…" He muttered back, feeling very embarrassed. She continued to look at him, very determined for an answer.
"Orihime… The only way to tell if something looks too small, is to look at it." Tatsuki responded in a worried tone. "Why are you looking there?" The auburn healer only tipped her head to the side in confusion.
"Look where?" She asked curiously. The school bell rang, signaling that lunch was over. She abruptly stood up and left, yelling a loud, vibrant 'See you in class!' to the rest of the group. Ichigo gave a heavy sigh, clearly still embarrassed, and Tatsuki chuckled with an awkward smirk on her face.
"What do you think Ichigo?" She started. "Do you think those pants are too small? Or maybe she's the one making them that way?" She teased him.
