In a rush, no time for a clever disclaimer. ME NO OWN.

He should have given up on her long ago.

It was the logical thing to do, after all. He was a noble, she owned nothing but the clothes on her back, he was a shinigami. She didn't have enough reiatsu to attract even the smallest hollow. In fact, logically, he shouldn't have pursued her in the first place, and logic hadn't let him down yet.

So he gave up on her, that girl from Rukongai. He gave up on the pretty girl, the polite girl, the girl with ebony hair and lovely eyes.

Giving up lasted all of four hours.

A billion apologies for the unintended hiatus! Unfortunately, it will probably continue for a couple weeks while I finish up the production I'm currently in and then readjust to school life. Sorry!

A million billion thanks to the reviewers!
