I don't own Bleach. You should probably be very happy about that.

Orihime was supposed to wait for Nemu. She found Mayuri Kurotsuchi instead.

Accidental Peek

Orihime Inoue peered through door after door in the maze like area. Nemu was somewhere among these rooms, but the orange haired girl wasn't sure where. They had come here so Nemu could drop of some information for her 'father' Mayuri Kurotsuchi before both girls were off to the hot springs, but a few minutes after her friend's disappearance Orihime had gotten worried.

However, curious was a better term for what she was feeling, instead of worried. Orihime had always wondered what Mayuri was like outside from the peeks she got to see whenever she went to see Nemu.

She passed another door, but this one was partially opened. Orihime closed one eye, so the open one could focus better and approached as close to the door as she could.

Inside was Mayuri Kurotsuchi with no clothes or make up on. It appeared that he had just gotten done bathing and was toweling his hair dry. Orihime gasped at seeing him in such a normal state.

Mayuri's eyes immediately moved to the door. "What are you doing here? Have you come because you wanted to take up my offer on letting me experiment on you?"

Orihime squeaked and moved away from the door. She was surprised he didn't even seem to care that she saw him naked. He didn't even bother trying to cover up; it was like he didn't notice, which just embarrassed her further.

On top of that he seemed to think she was there to agree to be experimented on, but Orihime was far too scared to comply since she's heard horrifying tales about what he does at the research department.

"I got lost! I was trying to look for Nemu because we're going to the hot springs, but I haven't been able to find her anywhere."

"Nemu is not here. However, I am free to experiment on your body and abilities. My previous offers are off the table, but if the data is interesting enough I might stay away from the life threatening operations."

Orihime was scared, but her body wasn't listening to her rational fears. It seemed to have taken an interest in the sound of Captain Kurotsuchi's voice, his honey colored eyes, his chest… She begged her eyes not to look any lower, but she couldn't help herself.

She saw Nemu heading down a different hallway out of the corner of her eye.

"I'm sorry, but I've got to go Captain Kurotsuchi!"

Orihime stormed off after Nemu. She glanced behind her once to see if he had followed, but it seemed that Mayuri had lost interest for the moment.

"Where have you been Orihime? I've been looking for you. I have handed in the reports. Are you ready to go to the hot springs?"

The orange haired girl tucked a piece of hair behind her ear. She tried to keep her heartbeat from beating so loudly and she cursed at the blush that rose to her cheeks at the thought of what had happened. She couldn't bring herself to say it.

But he let her go… That one act of kindness, surely he couldn't be that bad.

"Yes, let's go to the hot springs now."

Elsewhere Mayuri was studying the wall behind where Orihime had backed up against. Reports were stapled everywhere.

He continued to study this carefully, knowing it was Nemu who did it. Finally, he figured that he would have to experiment on her once again since it seemed her programming was off.

Orihime Inoue was far from his mind.

Not sure if that's exactly how Mayuri would speak, but I gave it a whirl I guess. This was before I wrote A Man. It's so fun to make Orihime all flustered. I 3 Mayuri so much.

There will be a side oneshot as to why Nemu did that, but you'll have to wait patiently for it.
