A Day Without Grimmjow
"What are you doing?" I asked.
"I'm leaving to go take care of some business." Grimmjow said.
He had this tiny suitcase that every time he held a shirt or a pair of pants over it, they folded themselves and got suck into who knows where. He seemed to be concentrating on something. At first I was timid to bother him but I just had so see what was going on. I just couldn't help it seeing as I had no idea why he would be packing without telling me anything first.
"Relax, I'm going to be going for a week but really it's only going to be a day for you. I'll be back by 9:00 tomorrow."
"Can I come?" yeah, I know it's a lot different them my usual response but for the last couple of months Grimmjow is all I've seen constantly. He's become a constancy or repetition that I'm used to and have come to like. I like consistency. Grimmjow is being the bastard that he is changing my consistency.
"Where are you going?"
"To another dimension, nothing to worry about Ichigo, just go clean or something to keep you busy." Grimmjow said nonchalantly as if him leaving wasn't a big deal, the nerve of him.
"Okay." I said as if my puppy just died. Just to mention, I mean I already told the guy that I love him and then cried about it or something like that, I have no dignity in front of this person. If I sound like I'm whining to him, I don't really care.
I leave the room and go find the vacuum cleaner which is where I left it. I plug it into the wall and began vacuuming the floor at which I did before I found Grimmjow packing. I'm so bored so I get creative and just start vacuuming the drapes. Well there did have dirt on them anyway.
I find the disinfectant and disinfect everything that I think has gotten dirty within the last 30minutes of me wiping it down. I'm done cleaning in 15-minutes and Grimmjow is still engrossed with packing. I do what he does to me and just goes in there and bother him again.
"So do you need any help?"
"You want me to make you something to eat?"
"I already cooked something this morning."
"You want to walk pantera?"
"Does she need food?"
"I fed her."
"What about cat-nip?"
He was short-talking me and it was pissing me off to the fullest. I had to get his attention so, I come up behind him and hug him. I stand there and he just leans over and sucks another T-shirt into the tiny suitcase. He doesn't stop what he is doing and just continues it at if I'm not there. Well if I'm bold enough…..
I stick my hands up his shirt run my nails lightly over his chest and hum into his back. They slowly wander down over his abs and go back up to rest on his chest. I pause to feel his chest rise and fall and then something comes out of me. I get the urge to want to scratch him so I did. I raked my blunt nails from his pectorals to the hem of his low rise jeans.
I a noise escape his lips that sounds faintly like my name but I didn't acknowledge it or go any farther. I just continue humming and listening to him breathe. For a while I'm content doing that and he just stops moving.
"Ichigo, how am I supposed to finish doing anything with you here?"
"I didn't know I was bothering you." I said innocently with a hint of sarcasm.
"You're driving me crazy. First you start hugging me and them you start touching me, I haven't been able to think about anything else but your hands right now and I really need to focus."
"Well there is nothing for me to do and you were kind of ignoring me, so I found something so do."
"STOP." He said simply. Oops well I hadn't realized that I was still doing it.
"Look they're will be plenty of time for me to give you all the attention that you are asking for when I get back okay."
He turns around and hugs me. Yeah I feel so much better that your still going to leave me here all by myself.
"What do you expect me to do while you're gone?"
"I don't know, go visit your family."
"What about the little hex?"
"Oh, it's only in play when I'm at home. If I left you could go over there for as long as I'm gone."
"Why didn't you tell me that before?" I am becoming a little annoyed now. Did he mean to tell me that every time sent him to the grocery store I could have been talking to my family? Yeah I am going a little mad.
"I'm going to go clean something."
"I thought you had nothing to do?" he said smiling at me with obvious intent.
"Yeah but something has gotten dirty within the last 10 minutes."
"Ichigo, you're a neat freak and all but you're also kind of lazy. If the house could clean itself you'd never move out of bed."
"I am not lazy."
"You didn't get out of bed yesterday until 3:00 and the day before you slept most of the day. Ichigo, your worst then a cat."
"I am not a cat."
"The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem."
"I do not have a problem."
Grimmjow is the cat. He looks like one. His pet is actually a three-headed cat. He moves fast and he really does like fish.
"Well you sleep a lot. You like being petted no matter how much you deny it. you lay around. You lick yourself…."
"HEY ONLY ONE TIME, IT WAS A DARE!"
"…your graceful, small and lithe, very alert, and you look like one."
I nuzzled his chest, not because I like Grimmjow right now but because it would get him to shut up. He hummed and started stroking my hair. That makes him the cat in this relationship. Any who, I looked at him and Grimmjow seemed sad for some reason. I didn't like it because Grimmjow only looked sad when something bad was going to happen or when he was hurt by me.
"Look Ichigo, I'm going to go on some business and I really need you to hold it down for me, ya know?" He was looking so worried and I really didn't know why. It scared me a little to know that he was scared. Now he didn't really tell me this but my empathetic senses told me that there was some restless energy inside of him.
"Yeah, Grimmjow, I know."
Grimmjow hugged me for a little longer before he just let me go. He turned back around and continued to pack. I just sat on the bed and stared at him until he put the last piece in waved to me. In the blink of an eye he was gone and I was left alone.
3 hours later….
I AM SO BORED! I called a friend to come over. I mean Renji doesn't have anything to do…I guess.
"Hey, man I ain't seen you in a minute." Renji comes in through the door and throws me some plays.
"So this is ya, crib now?" Renji looked around and his mouth hung open just slightly. Grimmjow decorations weren't exactly homey. It was much worst before I came in and added something of mine in it (you do know he had like little voodoo dolls and stuff hanging from the ceiling not to mention blood all over the walls, and it was real!).
"Yup, but this is how he decorates."
"I kind of figured. You look like a dude that would paint a sea of stars on the ceiling or something like that."
"That's what I got on my ceiling, he decorated that too." He even put clouds in it, go me!
Renji sat on the couch and just kept looking around. Suddenly he looked straight at me. His face was curious with hint of serious. I wondered what he was thinking and what had to be on his mind so hard that he was switching emotions like that.
"So, Ichi, what is like?"
"How do you feel about him? What do you do? I mean, you don't get to see your friends and family. "
"He's alright I guess. I don't do nothing…look lets do something else cuz he's gone until like 9:00 tomorrow and I just want to do something that has nothing to do with Grimmjow."
"Don't tell me you already miss him?" Renji said all amused like. I narrowed my eyes at him. What was he getting at? I could live without Grimmjow; I mean I did it before I met him, what is the difference now? I just rolled my eyes and decided to take Renji into the man cave I found when Grimmjow threw an impromptu party.
"Dude this is nice."
"Yeah, but we don't use it at all, or at least I don't."
2 hours later….
"I've beat you 30 times in Mario cart, I think you should quit!" yelled Renji.
"Look, just because your thumbs are a freak of nature doesn't mean that I have to move that fast."
"Oh you're just mad because you can't win."
"Yeah, just like you in your relationship."
"Relationships Brah, I'm a real stud."
"Dude, you're not a stud, you're more like a stub because you're a flip flop."
"I pull both sexes ain't no shame in my game!"
"I'm not saying anything is wrong with your whorish behavior or the fact that you think because it's a different gender that it isn't cheating. Speaking of them, are you still with Rukia?"
"Yeah, but I think she's cheating on me."
"Well you're cheating on her."
Renji really had double standards. He's been cheating on Rukia with this guy name Byakuya. Not mention that the guy is her brother so Renji is a rule whore for keeping it in the family. Of course Rukia probably found out. I've only seen her once or twice but I know she's real cool. If Renji brought her over more we really could have been besties.
"Anyway, who do you think it is?"
"Her roommates. She moves in with a couple of kids or midgets. They're all really short like no one is 5 ft tall. There this one guy with white hair and he is weird and stuff. I don't know what's going on with him. He also hangs around this girl who wears a bun all the time, she might be a dancer, and supposedly they are going out. The odd thing is that I catch him glimpsing at the blonde chick with the pigtails that they have over there all lustfully and shit. "
"So, Renji, what are you trying to say?"
"I'm trying to say that I think that my girlfriend is a porn star."
I just looked at Renji because what he just said is ridiculous but then again what is to be expected looking back at his track record.
"So, what if she is?"
"I don't know, hey what time it is?"
"Well, Ichigo I'm going to have to go so I can get ready for work."
I went and showed Renji out, said good bye and then went and sat on the couch in front of the TV. I turned it on and saw some body getting beat up on Lifetime.
3 hours later…..
THAT BITCH, if I could jump into the TV I would've kicked her ass. Gonna set up my friend like that! BET YOU WON'T COME ON KUROSAKI STREET WITH THAT SHIT!
2 hours later….
Jenny why won't you just let yourself be happy. You got kicked out the house, became a whore but still had your dreams. Now a guy wants to give you the time of day and YOU just can't let it happen. The nerve of a stripper, I know if I was fine like that I just chose what I want but when your broke, honey you should just take what makes you happy not what can't pay your bills.
Okay my logic is stupid and I'm losing my man points watching life time but I'll let you guys know that real men know how to cry, even if it's about a movie about a girl winning the special Olympics.
30 minutes later…..
Okay I've decided to go over my old house but I really wanted to wait on Grimmjow to get back so that I can introduce all of them. I think I will….
Now who the hell is this at my door? Looking down at myself I really didn't need to be seen my anybody right now. I was covered in tissues, chocolate, hot buffalo chicken wings, kool-aid, and pickle juice. My hair was matted and my lazy eye was showing.
I got up to get the door. I just opened it not thinking about anything much and-what the hell?
"What are you doing here?"
"Some unfinished business."
"Well, Grimmy isn't here so you gonna have to handle yo biness somewhere else or wait till he get back."
"The biness that I have is with you actually, although I don't mind waiting for his return. "
