"You're too much in love with him to fall in love with anybody else."
note. uh jeez. i stole this from this love and transformed it into a full fic :D anyways, this is going to be short, a four-logy, maybe, five-logy? :D
this is written in a form of series of correspondences between characters
Bleach and whatever it is that you might recognize belong to the World, to the Internet, to the People.

Dear Ms. Orihime Inoue,

Thank you for your application. We are delighted to inform you that you are successful in your application. Enclosed in this letter are the necessary documents and plane ticket for you. We wish you a safe journey.

FROM: Tatsuki


What do you mean you're going to New York? What do you mean you got accepted in a college in New York?

I checked my geography and the map of the world and New York… that's on the other side of the planet! Do you know how far it is? Do you know how far you are going to be from us?

From him?

I think I'm going to have a heart attack and I don't care but I'm going to blame you if I die.

FROM: Ichigo

As Inoue's best friend, I'm sure you are aware of Inoue's situation. She's going to New York and I don't understand why she has to go that far just to study… what is it again, nuclear science or was it engineering? Tokyo has colleges. She doesn't have to go that far.

Congratulations on your college scholarship, Inoue.

The university is world famous and they have world-class education. You are blessed.


Uryuu: I think it is for the best. She needs a change.

Sado: …what about Ichigo?


E237283 Tokyo-New York

ETD: 10:45


You must be at the Boarding Gate 30 MINUTES before flight departure.

Guests should present a valid photo ID to airport security and upon check-in.

Ichigo: Someone has to look after her. What if she gets into trouble? Hell, she needs someone who'd protect her. She's going to live in that place on her own.

Uryuu: Maybe that someone is not you, Kurosaki.

Ichigo: I'm not saying it has to be me, bastard.

Uryuu: But you want it to be you.

Ichigo has logged off.

Dear Tatsuki-chan,

I'm sorry I can't reply using e-mail! I think I did something wrong… the computer blinked and went black all of a sudden so I had to use a conventional way to reply! I hope you like the paper I chose! The little blue aliens in the margins are so cute, aren't they?

I'm afraid I'm not kidding you. I applied for a scholarship and got accepted. Isn't it amazing? It's not going to be easy because I have to learn their language and culture but I don't want to waste this opportunity. Ochi-sensei said opportunities like this are rare so I have to grab it. It was difficult for me to come up with this decision. I don't want to leave Karakura. I don't want to leave you and our friends. But I have to do this.

This isn't the end, right, Tatsuki-chan? It isn't that far! We will bridge the gap between Karakura and New York with lots of letters and postcards! We will see each other again for sure! I will visit you and you will visit me! I am going to miss you so much. It will never be the same without you. I know you worry about me but I'm a big girl now. I have to take care of myself and be strong for myself.

Always remember that you will always be my best friend!



Note to self:

Don't forget to pack your essential belongings.

Don't be late.

Don't forget your ID.

Don't forget your plane ticket.

Don't forget your documents.

Don't forget your Japanese to English dictionary.

Don't… Don't…

Don't cry.

Don't cry or Tatsuki-chan will worry.

Don't cry. Don't cry…

FROM: Ichigo

Do I have some sort of fucking disease?

Every time I tried talking to Inoue, it's either she has to go to the restroom or bring someone to the clinic. I asked her today if I can walk her home but she refused my offer and said she had to go somewhere and ran off without giving me a fucking chance to say something.

FROM: Tatsuki

At least, she's going to be so far away from you.

You have an instant message from: ICHIGO

Ichigo: What is that supposed to mean?


I'm happy for you, really. It's just that the idea of you and I not living in the same country is completely foreign to me. I'm glad that everything is falling into place for you and that you know what you want to do with your life. I hope that whatever it is that sent you packing isn't going to chase you away any further.
