Chapter 11

A Day to Myself

Author's Note: Hi everyone! I'm sorry this is late. My internet was down all last week and I just now got it fixed. Anyways, I just like to say that the two drabbles that were requested should be up sometime today. They are called Confession and Matchmaker if anyone is interested.

One final thing, you all know that this month is November and with November comes the NaNoWriMo contest which I will be participating in. Now for those of you, who are unfamiliar with the NaNoWriMo contest, allow me to explain. Starting on October 31st, 11:59pm, writers from across the globe will begin writing. The goal of the contest is to write a 50,000 word novel by November 30th, 11:59pm. Now, because of the contest I may not update at all in November. I will try my best, but I have an awesome idea for the contest and I really hope to get it all typed out. I apologize, but I need to do this. Thank you for understanding.

Now onto the chapter!

Hichigo sighed as he walked down the sidewalk. It was a bright and beautiful day. It would have been perfect to take Ichigo out today, but no. Ichigo had school today. Now, with Hichigo separated from Ichigo, Hichigo couldn't be with him 24/7. That meant that now Hichigo had a lot of free time. Any normal person would love this, but Hichigo had nothing to do with this free time. So, here he was wandering the streets.

I could go hang out at Urahara's shop again. That's what Hichigo had been doing. Every day, he would head over there and drink tea while listening to the men talk on and on. It was starting to get to him and he doubted he could handle that anymore. There has to be something to do. He groaned and looked around at where he was. He had been just aimlessly walking, and he had ended up near a big park. It was full of lush trees and had a small playground. Hichigo thought about going over to the park for a minute. Maybe, I shouldn't. I don't want to look like a pedophile.

Just as he was about to walk away, a cry sounded over the other screams.


Hichigo turned towards the park and saw a little girl with blond pigtails and big green eyes standing in front of three boys. She stood in front of one who was her same height and wore a red baseball cap to cover up his black hair. The boy held a red ball in one hand and would lift it high in the air whenever the little girl would try and jump to get it. He snickered at her and so did the two other boys. Hichigo's new heart went out for the little girl and he grew angry at the boy. He wasn't sure why, but he began to march over to the kids.

"Hiromasa, give me the ball!" yelled the girl. [1]

"Make me, Shizuye!" said Hiromasa. [2]

Shizuye was almost in tears now.

"Why do you pick on me!" she shrieked before the tears streamed down her face.

Hiromasa and the other boys just laughed at Shizuye.

"Why don't you just give her back the ball and there won't be any trouble." Hichigo said as he loomed over the small boys.

"This your dad, Shizuye?" Hiromasa teased further.

Hichigo had had enough of this little pest. He leaned down and got right in his face.

"No, I'm not. Which means I won't hesitate to hurt you and your snot-nosed friends. Now, give her the ball." said Hichigo threateningly.

Hiromasa gulped before he threw the ball to Shizuye and ran off with his friends following behind him. Hichigo smirked and turned to see the girl holding the ball in her hands and smiling. She looked up at him with bright, big eyes and ran over to hug his legs.

"Thank you, Mister." she said.

Hichigo leaned down on his knees so; they were the same height and gave her a smile.

"You're welcome." he said.

"Could you come and play with me and my brother? Our mother is too busy."

"I'd love too."

For the rest of the day, Hichigo played with Shizuye and her brother, Aki. When they had to leave, Hichigo waved good-bye to them and promised Shizuye he would play with them again tomorrow. Then, Hichigo made his way back to the high school to meet up with Ichigo. Well, I now have something to do every day. Shizuye and Aki stayed in Hichigo's mind as he walked. He could just imagine himself and Ichigo with little ones. Ichigo would make a great mother. Hichigo chuckled at the thought. He stood in the courtyard of the school and watched as Ichigo made his way over to him.

"Hey." he said.

"Ichigo, I want kids." said Hichigo, stoically.

Ichigo looked at him like he was crazy.

"What? I'm being serious."

"Whatever, Hichigo."

[1] Hiromasa means wise or straight-forward in Japanese.

[2] Shizuye means quiet branch in Japanese.

Author's Note: Sorry, for the short chapter, guys. I'm really trying to get this novel going and I hope you understand. If any of you are doing NaNoWriMo then, tell me because I'd like to know. It's always good to have other people writing with you.

RQOTD: Did you think I died?

Yeah, again sorry for last week, but I think I worried more than any of you.
