Ichigo felt the nudge to her shoulder; she opened her eyes and saw Renji. She sat up and glanced back at Byakuya she was still asleep. Renji pointed over his shoulder and Ichigo saw Grimmjow dressed in a white button up and nice jeans on. Ichigo pulled her phone out of her bag and saw the texts messages for Grimmjow and everyone else in her family. She instantly remember she was suppose to have dinner with her family tonight, she glanced at the clock 5:30 PM.
"Shit!" Ichigo mumbled she stood from the couch and walked over to Grimmjow while dialing her house phone number.
"Ichi? Where the hell are ya? Yuzu said dinner will be ready in 10 minutes." Ichigo heard through the phone. Ichigo waved to Renji and left with Grimmjow.
"You are going to have to at without Shiro, I fell asleep at Byakuya's and I hav to go back home to change."
"Ow, damn it Karin. Hey don't touch, ahhh." Ichigo heard struggling on the phone and shook her head.
"Ichi-nii. Yuzu will be very upset if you don't come here. We all want to see you and meet your dumbass boyfriend." Karin said, Ichigo heard Karin holding Shiro back and instantly saw the picture. Karin would be standing on the coffee table applying pressure to Shiro's wrist with her foot. Ichigo shook her head and sighed.
"Karin I can't it's a 4 hour drive to Karakura." Ichigo mumbled.
"Drive here and stay the weekend. We could all use the time together." Karin said, Ichigo was going to respond but Karin hung up the phone. Ichigo looked at her phone, Grimmjow glanced at Ichigo while gripping the steering wheel.
"My family insists I go for the weekend." Ichigo said, she glanced out of the window.
"I'll text you to your place you can grab some stuff and then we can go to mine and be on our way before 6." Grimmjow said, moving a hand to place his hand on Ichigo's knee.
"Grimmjow I'm not asking you to spend the weekend with my crazy family." Ichigo said shifting her gaze to Grimmjow.
"You asked me to do dinner with your family and I intend to." Grimmjow said, Ichigo huffed and crossed her arms.
Ichigo stepped out of the car a stared at the house in front of her. Grimmjow got out and grabbed their bags and stepped up next to Ichigo, Ichigo sighed and led Grimmjow to the front door. She knocked and step backed, Grimmjow dropped the bags instantly when the door open and a fist came towards his face. Grimmjow grabbed the fist and twisted the arm so the figure was facing the other way and Grimmjow holding the arm in an awkward and painful position.
"God Damnit! Let me go you damn bastard!" the figure shouted.
"Damn it Shiro you should know a fighter's instinct is going to kick in." Ichigo said making Grimmjow release her twin and pushing Shiro into the house. Grimmjow picked up the bags and followed Ichigo into the house. Shiro was rubbing his wrist when Grimmjow took in the people in the house. What shocked Ichigo was the black hair man that stood from the couch and turned slowly. "What the hell?" Ichigo whispered.
"Surprised you made it Ichi, I thought you weren't coming." The man stated.
"If I would have known you were here I wouldn't have bothered." Ichigo growled a little.
"Ichigo it was nearly 13 years ago, let it go." Isshin stated while rubbing his temple.
"13 years to soon." Ichigo said crossing her arms.
"Damn it Ichigo I'm your brother." The man said clinching his fist tighter.
"No." Ichigo said calmly. "Not any more."
"Ichigo!" Isshin yelled. "You will apologize to your brother this instant."
"Why so he can go and sell everything he knows about the family? Everything Uncle taught him! How can you sit back and act like he has done nothing wrong? He left when he was 18 betrayed the family and disappeared only to show up 13 years later and except to be forgiven. And you so willing let him into the home he left." Ichigo shouted. The entire house went quite, Grimmjow glanced around the house and noticed a familiar pale green-eyed girl.
"The hell? Ulquiorra?" Grimmjow asked, Ulquiorra looked towards Grimmjow as did Shiro with a frown on his face. "What are you doing here?"
"I always go with Shiro when he goes home." Ulquiorra said emotionally.
"Why?" Grimmjow asked.
"I really don't think this is a good time to talk about this Grimmjow." Ulquiorra said, a beautiful blonde woman walked into the living room with a pretty smile and holding the hand of a seven year old. Yuzu walked in behind her and ran to Ichigo.
"Ichi-nii." Yuzu shouted as she hugged Ichigo the seven year old boy release the woman's hand and ran after Yuzu and hugged Ichigo's leg. The woman gave a soft smile.
"Ggio what are you doing?" The woman laughed. "You don't know her."
"I know but Aunt Yuzu does. So she has to be friendly." Ggio said.
"Aunt?" Ichigo questioned shifted her gaze to Isshin.
"Ichigo I would like you to meet my wife Savanna, and my son Ggio." The man said. "Savanna this is my sister Ichigo."
"Oh, it's a pleasure to meet you. Shuhei has told me a lot about you." Savanna said. Ichigo scoffed.
"Funny he hasn't mentioned you." Ichigo said, Karin walked into the living room and hugged Ichigo. Savanna frowned and walked over to her husband. Ggio ran to his parents and sat down on the couch.
"Ichigo, Shuhei has come to apologize." Isshin said. Ichigo grabbed Grimmjow's arm and pulled him towards the stairs.
"I assume I am staying in my old bedroom." Ichigo stated.
"Ichi." Shiro started but the disappearance of Ichigo and Grimmjow up the stairs silenced him. Karin and Yuzu glanced at each other, they knew Ichigo took the betrayal of Shuhei the worst and that was the reason why she hated cage fighting. It torn her family apart after Shuhei left taking all the information Kisuke ever gave him.
"Perhaps we should let her cool off." Ulquiorra suggested and grabbed Shiro's arm when Shiro moved to follow Ichigo.
"I think that is a grand idea Ulquiorra." Isshin said, the family dispersed to do there own thing.
Ichigo was pacing around the bedroom while Grimmjow was laying on the bed staring at the ceiling. Ichigo growled and slammed her hands down on the dresser. Grimmjow snapped up and glared at Ichigo.
"What the hell is wrong?" Grimmjow shouted. Ichigo turned on him.
"That man betrayed my entire family and has the balls to return and act like nothing is wrong." Ichigo growled out, Grimmjow motioned for Ichigo to come to him and wrapped his arms around her when she was close enough.
"Start from the beginning Ichi." Grimmjow said, rubbing circles on Ichigo's back.
"The man downstairs, his name is Shuhei. His is my oldest brother, he is nine years older then me. When I was little I loved cage fighting, my uncle Kisuke owns a gym and I would always go there because my father is a doctor and he had to work a lot so after school I would visit my uncle. He taught my brothers how to fight, the secrets of a good training schedule a healthy diet the whole bit. I loved being around my uncle and aunt, I learned so much about the cage and the body. Then when I was 9 Shuhei up and left the city, we didn't know where he went. It took us a good year to realize the Shuhei had sold the information about my uncle's fighters to everyone including Aizen. That's how Aizen is the top gym now. My uncle has had to completely readjust his fighters, because anytime one of his fighters went into the cage his opponent would know everything about him and how to counter it, so the fighter got his ass kicked every time. My uncle has be testing his new program with Shiro, but Aizen keeps finding something to keep my brother from entering the league." Ichigo said, during her story she relaxed against Grimmjow. Grimmjow couldn't believe what he heard, this guy sounds like a real dick.
"I can see why you blew up Ichi." Grimmjow said, Ichigo sighed and snuggled into Grimmjow. Grimmjow laid back into the bed and pulled Ichigo with him, Ichigo let out a laugh and Grimmjow flipped them. Grimmjow looked down at the beautiful glowing berry and smile softly. Ichigo tilted her head.
"Is something wrong Grimm?" Ichigo asked, Grimmjow shook his head and nuzzled her neck, causing Ichigo to break out into a fit of giggles. Ichigo's hands came up to Grimmjow's shoulders and tried to push him away from her neck. Grimmjow then started to naw on her neck, Ichigo started to squirming. Grimmjow left her neck and pulled back and looked at Ichigo.
"Come on Ichi let's sleep." Grimmjow said moving up the bed to rest his head against the pillow, Ichigo nodded and followed Grimmjow and rested her head against Grimmjow's chest. Ichigo was the first to fall asleep, Grimmjow noticed the sleeping berry and kissed her forehead and glanced out the window. The moon was full and Grimmjow was confused about this visit and was slightly frighten about how the rest of this visit would turn out.
Ulquiorra was sitting on the edge of Shiro's bed watching Shiro do his nightly work out.
"Shiro." Ulquiorra said. Shiro nodded up in her direction. "Are you okay with your brother being here?"
"Not really no but for Yuzu and Karin, I'll deal with it." Shiro said, he let out a grunt and continued on with his work out.
"I know the story about him and all but I don't understand why Ichigo hates cage fighting now. I mean you use his betrayal to fuel your fire in your training but Ichigo completely turned out fighting why?" Ulquiorra asked, Shiro stopped mid push up and looked up at Ulquiorra. The room was silence for 5 minutes as Shiro held the plank position, Shiro stood up and sat on the floor crossed legged facing Ulquiorra.
"Honestly?" Shiro asked, Ulquiorra nodded. "Ichigo can't stand betrayal and every time she watched a fight or walked into the gym she would be reminded of what Shuhei did and it would anger her. It was Kisuke's idea to get Ichigo out of the fighting scene. Kisuke pushed Ichigo into early med school for the young." Shiro said, he grabbed the towel next to him and wiped the sweat away from his face and neck. Ulquiorra gripped her chin.
"Explains why she avoided the gym, but why date Grimmjow now? Doesn't she feel that since of betrayal knowing that Grimmjow is a cage fighter?" Ulquiorra said her voice was questioning and Shiro smirked.
"You care for the little berry." Shiro said. "because she is my sister."
"Don't be so full of yourself, I met Ichigo first Shiro she is the closest thing to a real friend I have. I don't want her to get hurt." Ulquiorra said crossing her arms and looking away from Shiro. Shiro stood from the floor and walked over to Ulquiorra, he placed his hands next to her hips and leaned over Ulquiorra. Ulquiorra continued to stare at the dresser, Shiro leans close to her ear.
"I think you feel something for me Ulqui. I think your emotions are coming out a little and they are aimed to me." Shiro whispered into her ear. Ulquiorra resist the urge to shudder when Shiro's breath went down her neck.
"You are stupid." Ulquiorra said, Shiro laughed and kissed her neck. Ulquiorra pushed him away. "Go shower, and get your shake thing. Kisuke would be upset if don't keep up the program." Shiro stood up straight and grabbed PJ pants and a towel, he walked to the shower and hoped in at the luke warm water and washed his body and hair. When he was done he toweled off and pull on his pants leaving the towel around his neck. He went down the stairs while rubbing his hair. Shiro turned on the kitchen light and noticed a little figure in the middle of the kitchen with a surprised face and a cookie between his lips. Shiro chuckled.
"Hey kid what are you doing up?" Shiro asked, Ggio grabbed the cookie from his mouth and offered it up to Shiro. Shiro shook his head and walked to the fridge, he grabbed a purplish drink in a bottle and began to drink from it. Ggio watch Shiro and continued to eat his cookie. When Shiro finished the bottle he took his attention to the kid. "What kid? You look like you see a life size gingerbread man."
"What's in that?" the seven year old questioned. Shiro looked at the bottle and then back to the kid.
"Just some stuff that is good for you." Shiro said, he squatted down in front Ggio.
"Why is it purple?" Ggio asked, Shiro chuckle and messed up the kids black hair.
"The berries in it." Shiro said.
"Like auntie strawberry." Ggio said, Shiro couldn't help it his laugh busted out of his mouth startling the kid. "what's so funny? Ichigo means strawberry right?"
"Ya you're right kid, but Ichigo also means the one who protects. So you're aunt protects people ya get it?" Shiro explained to the kid.
"I like strawberry better." Ggio said, Shiro chuckled and picked the kid up.
"Don't we all kid."
