Strawberry and Blueberry parfait chapter 9

Ichigo hadn't slept a wink. Nope, not at all, he just stared at the bloody clock for ages. Even with that said, he was cheerful once the alarm clock rang at twelve p.m. He shut it off and patted across his house to wake up Nel, who was dozing off on the couch.

"Nel-"

"AWAKE!" Nel jerked up and ran to get her clothes.

Ignoring the fact that she just scared the crap out of him, he went to change his clothes too. He wore black skinny jeans that had a design of splattered neon paint on it, and he put on his favorite "Gazette" T shirt. Damn, he fell in love with the j-rock band as soon as he heard "Filth in the beauty."

"You done Itsyugo?" Nel popped her head into his room.

"You're doing it again…" Ichigo sighed, Nel had a habit of talking like a baby when she was worried.

"Oh…sorry Itsyug- I mean Ichigo…"

"Look, he's fine now. I bet he's just going to grin and say that he heals fast or something." Or at least Ichigo hoped he would say something like that.

Nel nodded and then both of them left to meet with Rangiku, Orihime, and Gin.

"Hey… Can we stop by that store real quick?" Ichigo asked Nel.

"Yeah… but isn't that a toy store?" Nel thought for a minute. "Ohhh, Wow, you do now my brother well." Ichigo smiled and went inside.

"Hello Mr. Urahara!" Ichigo smiled happily.

"Ichigo? Wow! You're all grown up now aren't ya?" Urahara smiled gladly. He tilted his hat so he can see Ichigo.

"Yeah… I came in here to get something for my friend." Ichigo said.

"Well, alright, let me know if you need any help lookin' for somethin'." Ichigo nodded and started looking around the store. Everything he was sure Grimmjow would like. But he wanted to find something kind of like him. Something caught his eye. A little blue paw was sticking out. But it was covered by all of the newer plushies, so no one could really pay attention to it. Ichigo pulled it out and fell in love with it as soon as he saw it. A blue panther plushie. Perfect.

"I found what I want!" Ichigo brought it up to the register.

"You found pantera!"

"What's pantera? The plushie?" Ichigo asked curiously.

"Yeah! she really goes well with your boyfriend too."

"Wait… How do you know that I have a boyfriend?" Ichigo blinked. He hadn't seen Urahara in years.

"Oh yeah, I saw you at the carnival with him but you ran as soon as he kissed you, so yeah… But I'm guessing everything's patched up since then, right?" Ichigo blushed heavily at the memory. He cannot believe he saw that.

"y-yeah…" Ichigo stuttered.

"Since ya found her, I'll give you another plushie!" Mr. Urahara reached under the counter and pulled out a white wolf.

"I think you know who you should give this to, right?"

"B-But… I don't need to give him anything!" Ichigo yelled.

" I've already figured it out, Ichigo. And I'm sure if you talked to him, you would see the mistake that the both of you made." Ichigo knew that He was smart enough but what was there to figure out. Ichigo thought for a moment but came up with nothing. Urahara sighed.

"He did horrible things but that was out of loneliness. And you trusted someone that was a vile evil bitch but then again, that was out of feelings of hurt." Ichigo didn't understand. And then he put two and two together. He felt sick to his stomach at the new information. But he nodded.

"Ah… Now you get it. Well, here ya go! And good luck, Ichigo." He gave the two plastic bags to him.

"Thank you…" Ichigo pushed aside the thought and walked with Nel again.

They walked in silence, not having anything to say. Or maybe they had too much to talk about… A big squeal broke Ichigo's thoughts.

"Hey, babes~! Took ya long enough! So are we gonna see the big baddie or not?" Rangiku pouted. It was her signature playful pout. Ichigo actually hadn't seen that in a while. And then he remembered what Gin told him. Ichigo smiled a bit, he was glad.

"Sorry, I had to stop by at a store along the way." Ichigo told her.

"Ohhh… You got him a gift too? I got him some Russian vodka and some good ol' Jack Daniels. You could never go wrong with some Jack!"

"You didn't happen to forget that he almost died and he's at the hospital right?" Gin said, appearing behind her, wrapping his arms around her waist.

"Yeah, yeah whatever ya silver fox!" Rangiku giggled.

"Y-yeah… I got him some car magazines since I found out that he's in the mechanics club." Orihime said.

"Wow, that's actually really kind of you, Orihime…" Ichigo said, not even knowing that about his own lover.

"Yeah, I try to be awesome." Orihime smiled, giving a goofy smile. "W-what about you, Nelliel?"

"Me? Oh, I'm just going to grace him with my amazing presence." Nel jokingly flipped her hair dramatically.

"Alright, alright, let's go in!" Ichigo laughed. They walked into the hospital and Gin went to the nurse, asking which room Grimmjow was in. They all followed the nurse to Grimmjow's room. Ichigo was about to walk into the room before he heard yelling.

"YOU FUCKING BITCH! YOU CALL THIS BULLSHIT FOOD? WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS BULLSHIT?" A nerve in Ichigo's head started throbbing. He swung the door open and stomped into the room. Grimmjow's eyes widened when he saw Ichigo next to his bed. The carrot top grabbed the front of Grimm's shirt.

"HOW DARE YOU FUCKING TALK TO SOMEONE LIKE THAT! DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO MAKE A MEAL FOR SOMEBODY?" Ichigo yelled at Grimmjow, whose eyes widened into the size of dinner plates .

"Ichigo!" Grimmjow hugged Ichigo's waist with a heavy grip. "I missed you so much!" Ichigo looked down at the blue hair and smiled gently. He sat down on the bed and hugged Grimmjow tightly.

"I love you!" Ichigo cried into Grimmjow's shoulder. His heart felt heavy with joy. His sobs turned to sniffles as Grimmjow patted Ichigo's head gently.

"I love you too, kitten." Grimmjow inhaled Ichigo's sweet scent of…strawberries and vanilla. This made Grimm smile a little.

"AHEM! Sorry to break up your "goo-goo love fest" But you sister is here too. And your friends!"

"Friends? What friends? They don't even know me!" Grimmjow yelled and Ichigo clutched his arm.

"Actually, some of them know you better than I do…" Ichigo said quietly.

"What..?" Grimmjow never really had friends before. Only a sister and a lover.

"I-It's true that you don't know us… B-but we know you! Ichigo talks about you all the time… Whoever Ichigo loves, we all love too… welcome to the family!" Orihime smiled. "I hope you like these… a lot of people from the mechanics club told me that these were rare and you would love them… A-AH! But don't worry, I mean they were expensive for most people, but my brother left me his fortune so…yeah…." Orihime handed him the bag and twirled her fingers nervously.

"OH HELL YEAH! How the hell did you get these? Last time I checked these were like, one hundred thousand each! All ten of the collectibles? I can't accept these…" Grimmjow said, staring in awe at the magazines in his hands.

"A-ah… well… my brother owned inoue tech industries…"

"WHAT? You're Sora Inoue's sister? Orihime nodded. He didn't really see the resemblance. Hell, Ichigo and her could have been brother and sister, not sora inoue! Ichigo hated himself for it, but the fact that the gift was so expensive and made Grimmjow extremely happy made him really nervous.

"Oh, and I got you some expensive ass white Russian an' some good ol-"

"Jack? Oh hell yesss!" Grimmjow smiled like a little boy on Christmas day.

"I heard ya wanted some piercings on yer ears so I got ya three for free from kenpachi's body shop." Gin said, giving Grimmjow the card.

"How the hell do you guys know everything that I like?" Grimmjow smiled broadly.

"Cause we're your friends." They all said at once.

"Maybe that's true. MAYBE." Every laughed at this.

"All right, well we're going to go and grab somethin to eat, you goo goo love fest can continue now." Nel said, smirking. It made her look more like Grimmjow.

"Hey, Where's my gift, sis?"

"Get off of my ass, Grimmjow." And with that, they all left the room. That left Grimmjow and Ichigo, whose arms were still wrapped around each other.

"And my gift isn't exactly luxurious as theirs were… but it reminded me of you…" He pulled the plushie out and Grimmjow froze.

"PANTERA! I've wanted this plushie since I was little! But I could never afford it. I mean it was cheap but my parents never gave me any money even though they're rich…" He grabbed the plushie and set it down next to him. And then he set on of his hands on Ichigo's waist. And the other stroked his check tenderly.

"Best. Gift. Ever." He planted a soft, loving kiss on Ichigo's lips. "Wait, no I could think of one better gift…"

"W-what?" Ichigo asked, panicking.

"Yeah, your virginity was the best but pantera is number 2." Grimmjow joked and Ichigo relaxed into his warm body.

"My brother did this to you, right?" Ichigo whispered.

"How did you find out? In fact, I just thought this, but how did I get here?"

"Gin found you. He called me and I got there a little before the ambulance. It was horrible…" Ichigo shuddered at the memory.

"I never wanted you to see that…" Grimmjow hugged Ichigo tightly. As if hugging him tightly would make the memory go away.

"I did. And it's my fault."

"What? No, it's NOT!"

"No, it really is. Yes, my brother committed incest. But it was only kisses. And he was extremely lonely. He would have eventually found a lover. But I sent him to the insane asylum."

"What? I thought your father found out and he sent him there."

"My father wouldn't have let him be sent off there. He would have made him go to a therapist but not an insane asylum. I was tricked into sending him…" Grimmjow went silent and started stroking Ichigo's back slowly.

"Tell me the story…"
