Chapter 5

Tōshirō POV

Why is she forcing me to let her do paperwork? I don't want her here. I don't like these feelings I have for her. She is my third seat. I can't have any kind of further relationship with her. God, why can't I just stop this.

I looked over at the couch.

She's been quiet for a while. WAIT! DID SHE...

I got up from my desk and stormed over to see her passed out on Rangiku's paperwork.


"Huh?" I picked up some of the stuff she'd done, "this is really detailed. She worked hard on this." I put the sheets back on the pile of finished work and walked over to my desk. I pulled open a draw to find something I was looking for but instead I found sake bottles.


I let out a frustrated sigh as I kept my temper in check. I ended up opening all the draws trying to find the object I was searching for only to find it in the stationary draw that had been emptied. On it was a note from Rangiku that said: 'Here you go Captain!' I growled. In the draw was a fluffy blue blanket. I picked it up and took it to my third seat. I placed the blanket on the table as I moved Tatsumaki to lie on her side on the couch. I put the blanket over her. She looked so sweet and innocent while she slept like everyone else but when she wakes her true colours will show... Need I say more? I sat at the table she was working at to finish the work she'd started.

"T-Tōshirō?" Tatsumaki asked pleadingly as if she were scared that I'd left. I placed a hand on her side.

"I'm still here, Tatsu," I reassured her. Her hand came up to hold mine as she fell back to sleep. I was captivated by her for a moment or two. She looked stunning. Her long, wavy, aqua hair, her emerald green eyes, her flawless skin, it all captivated me. I shook my head and tried to remove my hand to no avail. I sighed.

I can't do any work if she doesn't give me back my hand. I guess that means I've done enough work for today.

I looked back at my third seat. I stood and lifted Tatsu's head to sit next to her. I sat and placed her head on my lap. I watched her for a while longer before I fell asleep.

Maybe someday...

AN: GODS, that was SHORT, not talking about Captain Hitsugaya. I PROMISE the next one will be longer (maybe). Then I will be skipping straight through the Bounts and onto the beginnings of the Arrancars. YAY FOR ARRANCAR! Not sure why but the arrancar are my favourite (Probably coz they're hawt *insert rape face*). I'm also gonna be writing a side story to this one about Ken (Tatsu's zanpaku'tō) not sure what it's going to be called yet or when I'm going to begin posting it but I'll let you know for those who are interested. Ok, time to shut up. Review, favourite, follow.
