Without further delay, here is the next submission! ^_^
Matsumoto the Genius by Misguided Shinigami (Rated T)
Summary: Momo is ill, she's coughing up blood from an internal injury from last time she was stabbed. Although Unohana can help, everyone's favourite Shirô-Chan is to the rescue. More HitsuHina as it goes on, so don't be discouraged!
Momo felt sick, she had been sneezing and coughing all through the fuku-taicho's meeting and had almost collapsed with exhaustion, she had been so quiet, apart from coughs and sneezes during the meeting, nobody had realised when she fell to her knees, choking up blood. It was only Rangiku who noticed when she started choking on the choked up blood and couldn't breathe.
"Momo-Chan, Momo-Chan, are you okay, you don't look too good" The fuku-taicho asked considerately, she then noticed the blood on the floor and leaking out of her mouth, Rangiku gasped
"Hey, Momo-Chan," She began to shout into the pale girl's ear "MOMO-CHAN, HELLO, ANYBODY IN THERE?" It was only at this when the other assembled fuku-taicho's realised that Momo was actually there. Isane looked around and saw Rangiku whacking Momo on the back, a handkerchief over the girl's mouth to catch the blood.
"What happened to Momo?" Isane asked, although not many people knew it, Isane was a good friend of Momo's, she had helped her to recover rather a lot after the 'Aizen incident' as the shinigami called it. Rangiku offered to help Isane carry Momo, although she was light, Isane couldn't heal and carry at the same time, so if Rangiku was carrying the girl, Isane could try and stop her from choking until they got to the fourth division, where Unohana could see what the problem was, because Isane had no clue why she was this bad. They struggled back to the fourth division, going through the less crowded streets if possible, Isane and Unohana had made that mistake when they took Momo and Hitsugaya-Taicho back to their division after the 'Aizen Incident', they were stopped every couple of seconds with people asking their condition, who did it? Where was the attempted murderer? And so on.
They eventually ended up in the fourth division, where Unohana-Taicho inspected the small girl's limp form, before making a decision on how to stop the fuku-taicho from choking and allow her to breathe. Unohana opened a stock cupboard and found a small bottle amidst the various medicines. She measured out a certain amount of liquid onto a plastic white spoon and poured two spoonfuls into the frail girl's mouth. Isane put her hand over her mouth, forcing her to swallow.
Momo Hinamori woke up in the fourth division, somewhere she ended up a little too often. She swivelled her head to the left and saw . . .
"Shirô-Chan, why am I here?"
"Momo, I was wondering when you would wake up, it has only been a couple of hours luckily this time though. You were in the Fuku-Taicho's meeting and started coughing, sneezing and well . . . puking up blood, it seems there was some internal bleeding still from," He paused and finished in a quiet and muffled murmur "You know, the last time you were stabbed."
"W-wait a minute, did you say hours, Shirô-Chan, how long have you been here for?"
"Since I found out what had happened, so, about five hours, well, -ish. And I'm still not Shirô-Chan, Okay, Bed-Wetter" He smirked
"I'm not going to stop calling you Shirô-Chan unless you stop calling me bed-wetter. But anyway, what about your paperwork?" Momo asked
"Rangiku is doing it, I think she's planning something though . . . again." He said, his eye twitching with the thought of the last of her 'little plans'.
Rangiku was hiding behind a tree with Izuru and Renji, watching Momo and her Taicho while going over the specifics of their grande scheme.
"Izuru, you and Renji will be over there," The plotting Fuku-Taicho said, pointing to a patch of barren land just down the hill from where the two victims were sitting, watching the sunset and eating watermelon. Renji, you will have to look like you're possessed to fool Taicho, meanwhile, I'll interrupt them and tell Taicho to help because Renji is fighting Izuru and that I think he's being possessed. Then, while Taicho is beating you up Renji, I'll-" She whispered the remainders of her scheme to them.
"Got it? Any questions?" She asked
"W-Well, why do I have to get beaten u-" Renji stuttered
"None, well then, great, let's go."
Rangiku waited for the two scared Fuku-Taichos to get into position and begin to fight.
'I wish I'd videoed Renji stuttering, I'll never get that opportunity again.' She thought as she sprinted up to the watermelon-eating pair
"Taicho," She panted "It's Renji, I think that he's been possessed or something, he won't stop attacking Izuru and I can't stop him, can you try please Taicho?"
"Okay Rangiku, thank you for telling me, I'll go now." He said, unsheathing Hyourinmaru and walking down the hill, ready to beat up Renji, before he could hurt Momo. Meanwhile, Renji saw the prodigy stalking down the hill, a cold rage in his eyes.
"Oh crap," He said "I'm so dead, so very, very dead."
Rangiku was up on the hill, she was speaking to Momo before she forced a pill down the startled girls throat. The effect was spontaneous and the fifth division fuku-taicho was unconscious in a matter of seconds. Rangiku giggled, her grand scheme was coming to fruition. Back down the hill, Renji was knocked unconscious in a very quick time, he unfortunately had to put up a good fight, otherwise Rangiku would take away all his sake, after all, Kuchiki-Taicho would lock him up if he bought any form of alcohol. Renji had managed to block a single attack from the child prodigy, but was beaten by the (cough) short (cough) captain like Renji owed him candy.
"TAICHO, MOMO-CHAN IS UNCONCIOUS, CAN YOU CARRY HER BACK TO HER BARRACKS, I'LL TAKE RENJI WITH IZURU'S HELP." The busty Fuku-Taicho yelled to her captain. Stage one; knock out was complete, time to initiate stage two.
Her Captain had carried Momo back, not knowing that Rangiku was following him, masking her reiatsu and clutching they key that she had stolen from the unconscious fuku-taicho's pocket. As he entered Momo's room, Rangiku sprinted up to the door and locked it.
"Let me out MATSUMOTO" Tôshirô had yelled
"I'll leave you and Momo-Chan in there for a whole day, to see how your feelings for each other develop, bye bye Taicho!" Rangiku grinned mischievously.
It took Tôshirô three hours to get out of the room, an hour waiting for Momo to wake up, and two to break the wall. (Rangiku had put a kidô around the room to prevent them from calling their zanpakuto). When he returned to his division, he saw a bomb fire, and on that fire, burning was all his paperwork that he had completed earlier that day. It had taken him seven hours to complete.
"Oh no, not like last time. I'll destroy the lock on the door so that she can't lock us in." He did as he said and poured a glass of water for the frail girl.
Tôshirô opened the door to see Rangiku, carrying a huge stack of paperwork and a small vial with four pills inside it.
"The papers are for you Taicho, the pills are for Momo-Chan." She hefted the papers and bent down so that she could give the items to her short Taicho.
"I can't do paperwork now Matsumoto, I'm looking after Hinamori." He took a closer look at the papers and almost fainted. "R-Rangiku M-Matsumoto you aren't sh-showing me these for real are you? These are c-c-co-COMPLETED!" The shocked Taicho of the tenth division exclaimed.
"Yep, and now I can go and drink … wait a minute, Izuru, Shuuhei, Ikkaku and Renji all have paperwork to do, I am so not going drinking alone, what will I do?" She fretted
"Sorry Matsumoto, I never thought I'd say this, but now that you've finished your p-paperwork, you'll have to help your drinking buddies with theirs so that you can go drinking with you. After all, normally it's Izuru who does your paperwork so that you can go drinking." Tôshirô closed the door in her face and walked back over to Momo, giving her the pills, which she swallowed along with the glass of water.
Not coughing as much now, she went to sleep.
Half an hour later in the tenth division's bar (Tôshirô didn't know about it)
"So you wrote a note to Hitsugaya-Taicho and put an extra pill in the vial of pills. But what will happen now, RanRan?" Izuru asked
"The letter that I wrote said that if Taicho asked Momo any questions while under the truth pill, she would forget the day after, a perfect opportunity for him to ask if she loves him, which she does."
"Why are we here then?" Shuuhei asked. Renji and Ikkaku nodded in unison.
"Well, I like to spy on people after a drink, we'll have one more glass and then we'll collect some cameras from your division Shuuhei. Their picture will be all over the Seireitei Communication by tomorrow!" Rangiku grinned like the Cheshire cat (Gin Ichimaru).
"Yes ma'am!" Renji and Ikkaku exclaimed in unison again. "I just wish that I could've seen his face when you came in with completed paperwork!" Once again, they spoke in unison "Wow, we are so in sync!"
Back to the fifth division
Tôshirô placed the note in the bin and made a quick decision. He was going to ask her today, as soon as she woke up.
Right on time, she woke up.
Half an hour asleep, just like Matsumoto said. Tôshirô gathered up all of his courage and spoke to her softly.
"H-Hinamori, do …" he paused
"Yes Shirô-Chan?" She smiled that sweet smile of hers, as sweet as sugar.
"D-Do you love me?" He stammered.
She smiled again, and answered in a confusing, yet smooth riddle.
"Do you know what fruits taste good together Shirô-Chan? I do. Watermelons and peaches, the watermelon is like a crisp icy taste, whereas the peach is sweet and warm."
"Like you." Toshiro whispered under his breath
"What was that Shirô-Chan? But anyway, fire and ice, they may not seem like a perfect mix at first, but they suit each other perfectly, the ice can guide the happy spirit of the fire through hard times, and protect the flames. But the fire can break open the hard exterior of the ice, and its happy-go-lucky spirit rubs off onto the ice." She spoke in her gentle voice, sounding as warm and gentle as the fire that she was describing.
'Has she really matured that much from when we were young?'
"Tôshirô, you're so dense!" She laughed airily
'Maybe not, she still laughs like she did back then …'
"We are like the watermelon and the peach. We are also like the ice and the fire. We suit each other perfectly, and we always will." She paused "In answer to your question Shirô-Chan …"
He was about to speak and ask for the answer when he felt a pair of warm lips on his, and smelt the sweet smell of peaches from in front of him.
As she kissed the startled Taicho, she smelt watermelons and smiled in her head, so he did smell like watermelons. She broke away from him to see his reaction, as she suspected, he was shocked, yet pleased.
He licked his lips,
"Wow Momo, how long did it take you to find peach-flavoured lip gloss?"
Author's Note: The end of the first one, but a little meanwhile paragraph;
Renji handed 1000 yen to Ikkaku, he hadn't expected Momo to make the first move at all. Rangiku and Izuru were taking pictures, and Shuuhei was already back in the ninth division, typing up three whole pages on the event, unaware that he would become a human ice cube the next day…
