Ichigo was sitting in the living room with the other soul reapers. The words from Jess. ‘I’m a witch.’ Kept replaying to him again and again. ‘It would explain why her spiritual energy is a bit out there…’ He says to himself. “Ichigo.” ‘Now the question where did she come from.’ “Ichigo!” ‘Does Jenna know what she is?’ “ICHIGO!!!” Ichigo suddenly felted a slap to the back of the head. “Ow! What the hell!!” He rubbed his head and looked up to see a fuming Rukia. “I’ve been talking to you for a while now! Get your head out of the gutters!!!” Renji smacked him in the back of the head again. “So it was you…” Ichigo says as his eyes twitch. “This is no time for you to space out. We couldn’t get here because of the swam of hollows so we have no clue what’s going on. We need information Ichigo…” Renji says in a

A young girl walked down the street carrying a bag. Her red hair blew lightly in the wind. Her green eyes looked left and right and then down to a piece of paper with an address on it. “Now, where is she at? She gave me these directions a few months back but what if she moved. I should really tell her to get a cell so that I can call. Or maybe she has one and I don’t have the number…hmm…” She faced palms herself “Man that girl is going to make me worry about her all over again.” She walked until she came across Jenna’s house. “Oh! The address matches this house.” The girl eyes sparkled as light blue streams flowed around the house. “Yes this is her alright. I can see her aura.” The light blue streams were soon followed by light green and black steams. They brushed against her body and she pushed it off. “Ew…what is up with this black and greenish aura? It’s surrounding the house

The fourth month was passing by quickly than expected. Jenna was still attending school despite protest from Ichigo. She wore a thick sweater to cover her ever growing belly. The last few days had been both scary and interesting at the same time. Jenna was still trying to wrap her mind around it. Ichigo being some kind of Shinigami that fought off bad spirts called…uh…hollows? Jenna giggled. In truth she thought it was nothing but Ichigo and the others playing some trick on her. She rubbed the necklace that she was wearing.
Yet, after she received this necklace she could see clearly when Ichigo and the others were slapped out their body and walked through the walls. Sure she did pass out from all the explanation but how could anyone not? Then there was Shinji and his friends who were after her and her baby. Jenna rubbed her arms. The very thought of dying that way gave her chills down her spine. Speaking of the baby, she rubbed her stomach. She still coul

"YOUUU IDIOT!" Rukia smacked Ichigo in the face and watched him slam into half a wall. "We told you wait and then you do this!" She grabs the half conscious Ichigo and rapidly shakes him and continues to yell about what an Idiot he was. Grimmjow and Renji stood there dumbfounded in front of the warehouse that was now into bits of pieces. "Now because of you we can't even confront the Visoreds let alone Shinji!" Rukia yelled as she smacked Ichigo one more time. She took a deep breath and face palmed herself. "I swear when it comes to Jenna you have a one tracked mind!"
Kisuke and Yoruichi were looking around the area hoping to get some kind of idea of where Shinji and the others went but no luck. They walked back up to the street. "It looks like they are gone for now. We can't sense any of them. The best thing we can do now is to head back and think of a plan. I will have captain Hitsugaya and the others scan the area anyway they can. " Kisuke said. Grimmjow looked ar

Jenna was lying on the ground passed out. She laid there for a good while until she felt someone poking her. When she finally started to stir she saw a shadow standing over her. She panicked and sat up quickly but she got dizzy and fell back down. Another few seconds pass by and she woke back up. She looked across from her to see Mr. Shadow across from her. She pouted. "You really need to stop sneaking up on me Shadow and can you change back into that black cloak? You look creepy as just a shadow."
He looked at her before he nodded and wrapped the cloak back around him. He walked up to her and held out his hand to help her up. "Where are we?" Jenna asks as she looks around. "We are at your old house." He looked up at the house and glared at it. Jenna noticed the look and started to look around. "So how do we get in Shadow?" He looked at her and started walking towards the wall. "This is nothing but memories so we can just walk through. There are things you can touch

Jenna was staring at a green headed girl. She was wearing a while bodysuit with orange gloves, boots and a scarf. She was sitting in front of the huge TV eating bag of potato chips. She was smacking really loud until a muscular man grabbed the chips and crushed them in annoyance. "Kensei why you do that for!?" She yelled as she frailed around on the floor. "You're so darn annoying, why you can't eat chips like a normal person!" He yelled as she pouted. The man had silver hair and He was wearing a purple shirt and green cargo pants with combat boots.
Jenna was more interested in the piercings on his ear and eyebrow. He noticed her staring and frowned. "What are you staring at?" He said more loudly then he intended to be. Jenna jumped a little bit and twilled her hair. "S-Sorry…I didn't mean to stare." She said silently. The man quickly felt a small tug at in his chest. She looked so sad and yet so cute. He blushed then quickly shook his head. "Ah crap…why

Jenna's head was spinning. She had all this information being thrown at her all at once and it was becoming more confusing at the second. "So…what you're saying is that I was attacked by this hollow thing and now I am carrying its child? You're also saying that all of you are um, spirits or ghost or whatever?" Kisuke laughed as Jenna placed a hand over her head as she tried to put all this together. "I guess you can call us that but we prefer Shinigami or Soul reapers if you can remember that." Jenna looked around the room then stop when Grimmjow and Ichigo enter the room. Grimmjow looked a bit pale and Ichigo looked very upset over something.
Ichigo looked over and he smiled gently at her but her eyes continued to watch Grimmjow. She wasn't sure but she felt like she had that look before…when she saw the man with yellows eyes…the one who protected her. "Mr. Grimmjow…" Jenna said softly as he sat down beside her. He eyed her and they stared in

Morning came too soon. Jenna did not want to leave the comfort of Ichigo's arms but the bathroom was calling her. She quickly sat up and jolted to the bathroom. However, as she did she started to feel a bit of dizziness and weakness in her legs. Ichigo woke up a bit stunned and heard Jenna in the bathroom. "Morning sickness…I wonder if she got it when she first got pregnant…maybe it's different in each woman." Ichigo shrugged as he went to the bathroom to hold up a sickly Jenna's hair.
After they got all cleaned up Ichigo started to fix breakfast for them. "Ah Jenna, I forgot to mention. You can't move freely around for a few days." Ichigo brought her a cup of water. "Besides the thing that is looking for you we had to remove a lot of blood from you last night. Your entire body was filled with a lot of poison. It is lucky that you and Orihime have the same blood type." He placed some pancakes and scrambled eggs on the place and placed it on the table. "Wha

Ichigo and the others were quickly running towards a couple of sudden bursts of spiritual energy. The larger one wasn't anyone or anything they recognized but there were a few familiar ones.
"Ichigo are you sure?" Uryu asked running behind him. "Yea there is no dought that this is Jenna's but there are else near her. I can't tell who it is though…"
Jenna could feel hot breath on her neck. Whatever that was holding on to her was lifting her up and slowly taking her away. While she was being dragged she realized that she wasn't in a regular house. She was actually in warehouse and from the looks of it she was pretty far up. "Y-You…" Jenna slowly turned her head to see Hiyori take out her sword. "Put her down…unless you wanna end up in pieces." Jenna felt something breeze passed her and just as quickly she heard a grunt. Turning her head, a bit Jenna's eyes widen as a puddle of blood was slowly formed behind her. "Hiyori! Are you okay? Hiyori!" There wa

It's hot. It's too hot. Jenna opened her eyes and realized that she was very hot. She sat up and looked around. It has been about a month or so since she was brought here. The man with the blonde hair still hasn't told his name and she would always wonder why it was so loud under the floor. There was someone always yelling. It was annoying. She slowly got out the bed and headed to the bathroom. She started to run water into the tub and when it was nice a full she slipped in. She had a loose sleep gown on but she didn't feel like taking it off. She sat in the water with her gown on and tried her best to relax.
A few minutes later The door to her room opened. A plate of food was placed on the table next to her bed. Footsteps headed to the bathroom and slowly opened the door. "Tisk…not again…"
Jenna opened her eyes and realized she was back in her bed. She sat up and looked around. "I thought I was taking a bath…" There was a knock at the door and she q

Kisuke was laughing as Ichigo gave him a death glare. "I'm sorry for all the confusion Ichigo. I hope my new worker didn't give you any trouble." It took all of Ichigo's sanity in order for him to answer Kisuke calmly. "Confusion my ass…" Kisuke laughed again. "Hey why do I gotta fix this? It was Ichigo's fault that the back of your shop has a hole in it." Grimmjow said complaining. "Well you don't have to fix but it will be going into your debt which means you will be working even longer for me." Grimmjow grumbled something about how life wasn't being far to him and he went back to work.
"So Kisuke what the heck is going on? Why was Grimmjow told to watch Jenna…better yet why is Grimmjow here at all?" Ichigo said in annoyance. "All in good time Ichigo you did leave a lot of people behind on your rampage over here." Kisuke says as he stood up and leaned against the wall.

Ichigo was running down the street. He was covered in sweat and worried was filled in his eyes. It has been a little over a month since Jenna disappeared and he continued to search for her. There would be random times when her spiritual pressure would appear then quickly disappear. At the moment it showed up in three different places; the park, her own house, and Ichigo's house. Ichigo was on his was to Jenna's house since Rukia was already at his house. Renji was already heading out to the park with the others. Ichigo cursed himself all the way to Jenna's house. 'How could I have been so stupid?' he yelled at himself 'Why didn't I listen to her when she was calling out to me!' All he could picture was the teary eyed Jenna trying to get him to listen. The morning when he was told about her disappearance his eyes were filled not with horror or sadness but with utter rage. As he round the corner he starts to remember the conversation at the house.

CHAPTER TWO PART TWO
(MA PART REMOVED)

Grimmjow was at his office sighing off on the rest of the work. He had to pull a double shift because the last package couldn’t be shipped until September. It was explained to Aizen last week so Grimmjow didn’t get in back lash. He had gotten the rest of the items they needed so now he was on guard duty for the café. He wasn’t looking forward to it but it was better than just sitting on his ass doing nothing for the rest of the day. Besides he couldn’t get Oichi’s face out of his head for some reason. He didn’t know a damn thing about the girl and yet her face kept popping up. He sighs as he gets up. He grabs his keys. “I wonder how much effort it would take to get her…”

He opened the door and came face to Ulquiorra. “The fuck you want? Why are you just standing here?” “I was about to knock actually…” Grimmjow rolled his eyes and closed his door, locking it. “If you’re here to check on me don’t bother. Tell him I’m just leaving.” “If anything happens its going to be on your head.” “Oh Shut up. I already know that.” Grimmjow was suddenly grabbed and slammed into the wall. He looked at Ulquiorra’s cold green eyes. “I don’t think you do understand trash. If anything happens to Sir Aizen’s plan then you will be held accountable for it and I will personally clear you out like the complete trash you are.” Grimmjow narrowed his eyes at him. He smacked his hand away. “Is that a threat.” “Clearly.” The two stares at each other under Grimmjow turned to leave. “Whatever, like I said I have it handled.” Ulquiorra watched him go. “Myyy, you two seem to be having such a friendly conversation as always.” Ulquiorra turns to see Gin leaning on the wall. Ulquiorra ignored him and headed off to do his own work. Gin chuckles. “I do hope the fun starts soon. Wouldn’t want it to get to boring around here haha.”

Around 12 in the café, business was booming already. In the restaurant area it was half full. The waiters and waitress were moving back and forth. Momo was greeting customers while Rukia was taking and bring orders. There was music playing something with a upbeat tone. Upstairs where Oichi was, in the café. She was carrying two trays for two tables. She went to the back table where a couple was sitting, and smiled. “Hello there, I have your cold Mocha with the omelet supreme and your Carmel Iced coffee with the breakfast burrito.” She sat the tray down. “Anything else I can do for you?” “No, thank you” They said. She nodded and went to the middle. She smiles brighter when she spotted the next table. It was Ichigo, Orihime and Uryu. She walked up. “Hey guys.” Ichigo places his menu down and smiles. “Hey Oichi. I guess your severing to?” “Yeah, the person who took your drink orders has other tables to attend to so I’m helping out.” Uryu pushed his glasses up. “You sure do a good job as a boss you know.” Oichi shrugs. “I just work as much and hard as anyone one of the employees here.” She sat the tray down. “Now, I have a cold brew lemonade, a coconut and macadamia iced Latte, and a Keoke Coffee?” They nodded. “Yeah the lemonade is mine.” Ichigo says. “I have the coconut and macadamia Latte.” Orihime says. “I have the Keoke Coffee.” Uryu says. Oichi passed the drinks out. “Ready to order some food?”

Ichigo nods. “Yeah I’ll have a BLT Bagel.”  Orihime smiles. “Can I have the nut butter banana and Chia Seed toast with strawberries?” “I’ll have the Quinoa and Chia Porridge with almond milk and for the sides I’d like the cup of peaches and oranges separated.” Oichi nods and writes it all down. “Alright, it will be about 20 minutes until your food arrives.” They nodded. Oichi leaves to go assist anther table. Orihime watches her go with a sad look on her face. Ichigo frowned and looked at her. “Orihime…you’re going to have to tell her.” Orihime looked down. “I…I can’t…it would break her heart.” Uryu pushed his glasses up. “True but, it’s better to tell her now then wait. In my opinion we need to first confirm something before we can even get to that step.” Ichigo grips his fist. “That bastard…I’ll make sure he pays…”

Grimmjow was sitting at the booth at the café. So far, he had to deal with a group of thugs who were trying to get free food. A couple who were trying to eat and run and some old friends trying to get rough with some of the workers. It had been a semi eventful day, can’t say it was all boring. “Grimmjow?” Grimmjow looked to see Oichi holding a tray. “Something wrong?” He asked. Oichi smiled and shook her head. “No, I thought you would be hungry after doing so much.” She placed a cup of coffee down and some blueberry cake down. Grimmjow sits up. “Thanks.” He took a fork and took a piece of the cake. He was half expecting it to be nasty but instead it was warm and it melted right in his mouth. “Did you make this?” Oichi nodded. “Yeah. Is it good?” “Yeah. I was expecting it to be nasty as hell.” Oichi pouted slightly. “How rude…why would you think that?” Grimmjow leans on his elbow. “You’re like the complete package.” “Excuse me?” “You’re a cute girl, nice figure, a somewhat uniqueness about you, plus you can cook. You’re a complete package. Some girls are cute but don’t even know what a damn oven is. Some girls are ugly as all hell but can put it down in the kitchen. There is rarely any that does it all.”

“Well first off…I don’t really like the fact that you are seeing me as an object and second of all, I wasn’t always good at cooking. A good friend of mine taught me and I just kept practicing until I got good I guess.” Grimmjow sips on the coffee. “Do you like working?” He asks. Oichi nods. “Yes, I love working and making my own money. I don’t like it when I have to ask people for things I know I can get myself with some hard work.” She looks away a bit. “I guess it’s a bad habit I get from my mother…she’s always taught me to be more independent so that I wouldn’t have to rely on anyone.” “Don’t see nothing wrong with that. An independent woman fits you to a T.” Oichi sighs. “I suppose…” “I bet your man enjoys that.” Oichi frowns as she remembered the conversation this morning. Grimmjow watched her expression change. “I guess not.” Oichi looks at Grimmjow and then smiles. “Thank you for watching out for us. I’ll come check on you in a moment.” She turns and walks away. Grimmjow’s eyes went down to her butt. ‘She’s got a nice ass…’

As the day went on Oichi surprisingly found herself talking more to Grimmjow about random things. It made her forget the argument she and Renji had. Oichi placed a cup of water in front of Grimmjow. “You like cats??” Grimmjow frowned. “Got an issue with that?” Oichi giggled. “N-No, I just didn’t take you as a cat person.” Grimmjow rolled his eyes. “Just don’t go around telling anyone.” “Of course. I can’t go around saying my security guy likes cute kitty’s.” She laughed making him blush slightly. “Oh, shut the hell up will ya.” “Sorry haha. It’s cute that you like them though. Do you have one?” “No, might get one someday but between work and this I don’t have time to put in with a pet.” “You should get something that matches your hair.” “A blue cat…?” Oichi nodded. “Around here we do have a legal exotic pet shop. You can always look for one there whenever you get the chance.” Grimmjow rubbed his chin. “Hmmm…I’ll go but only if you come with me.” He says smirking. Oichi blushed slightly. “I can’t do that.” “Why it’s not like your cheating on your guy. Just two friends going pet shopping. Maybe you might see something you like instead.” Oichi rubbed her head. “I don’t know…I don’t Renji to get mad at me…” Grimmjow frowned. “What does he got to get mad about? We aren’t going on a fucking date. Just to look at some pets.”

Before Oichi could respond Ichigo walked over to them. “I can hear your mouth all the way over at my table.” Grimmjow narrowed his eyes. “Your still here strawberry.” “You damn right. Just got to make sure you aren’t trying to go after an already taken woman.” Oichi looked at them. “You two know each other?” “Something like that…” Ichigo says. “Hmf…” Grimmjow got up. “I’m going to make my rounds. I have to get back to my actual job so someone else will be coming to take my spot.” He takes out his wallet and hands Oichi a 50-dollar bill and his card. “Grimmjow??” “Keep it and call me if you need anything.” He leaves. “What a weird guy…” Ichigo leans on the counter. “Yeah but be careful around him. He can be trouble when he wants to be.” “Is he? He seems really nice.” “That’s how he gets you. Plays the nice guy. Takes you out. Gets you in bed. Never hear from him again.” Oichi giggles. “So a booty call.” Ichigo nods. “You don’t have to worry about me Ichi. I have Renji. I’m not looking for another man anytime soon.” She looks at her ring and smiles. “I love him with all my heart even if he gets on my nerves sometimes.” Ichigo frowned and looks away. “Yeah…I know.”

Around 3 to 4pm, Downstairs was getting pack now. Rukia was in the back, in the employee rooms, getting ready to go home. For now, she takes the evening shift 9am to 4pm. It was past her time to go, almost hitting 5. She sighs as she rubs her stomach. She had a small bump but it wasn’t super noticeable. So far no one has notice her weird behavior. How was she going to tell everyone about her pregnancy? Renji hasn’t even left Oichi yet. “What could he be waiting on.” The longer he waits the longer it would become to end it. She looked at her phone. She had two missed calls from Renji. She redialed it and listen to it rings before he picked up. “Hey there cutie. You working hard?” Rukia sighs. “Yeah…” “You sound tired.” “I am. I’m about to leave now. Someone is here to cover my shift.” “That’s good how about you come over?” “To the house??” “Yeah, you sent me a picture of the schedule remember. Oichi doesn’t get off till 8 so that gives us a good amount of time. Plus, you got to get use to this bed since it’s going to be yours now.” Rukia frowned. “Renji…how long are you going to make me wait? When are you going to end it?” There was a pause and a sigh. “Don’t worry about that. I will take care of it. Promise.” Rukia sighs. “Are you having second thoughts about us?” “What? No of course not! Right now, I just transfer the name of the house to mine. I just have to wait two weeks until its finalize and then we can be together.” “…Alright…” “Great, I’ll see you in a few then.” Rukia smiles. “Okay. I love you.” “Love you to babe.” She hangs up and sighs.

She picks up her bag and turns and stops to see Orihime standing there. Rukia’s eyes widen. “Orihime…” “…Rukia…I can’t believe it.” Rukia took a step back. “What are you talking about. “Your sleeping with Renji…behind Oichi’s back.” Rukia looked away slightly. “It’s not like that.” “It is like that. I saw you two…I know everything.” Rukia’s head snapped up and looked at Orihime in shocked. “You…saw us!?” “I did. I didn’t want to say anything because I didn’t want to believe it at first but, I won’t let you and Renji hurt her like this.” She turns around. Rukia bit her lip. “Wait Orihime! She won’t believe you!” Orihime stopped. “You know how Oichi is. Without any proof she won’t take your word for it! You’re just risking your friendship!” Orihime bit her lip. “Even so I can’t let you go on hurting her. If our friendship comes to an end then I’d rather have that then knowing that one of her best friends is cheating with her fiancé. What kind of friend would I be if I do not say something about it!!” Orihime yells. She then ran out the door.

Rukia heart was racing. She quickly gathered her stuff and left out the back. Orihime went upstairs just as Ichigo was coming down. “Orihime…” “Ichigo…why does it have to be me?” She looks up at him teary eyes. “I don’t want to risk my friendship with Oichi but I can’t stand here knowing what they are doing behind her back…” “We will talk to her together then.” Orihime sniffs. He grabs her hand and takes her back downstairs. He pulls her near the bathrooms. “Ichigo…right now. Rukia is heading to Oichi’s house with Renji.” Ichigo frowned. “If you confronted her about what you saw then I doubt she will go to Renji now…she’s too smart for that.” Orihime looked down. “Why am I always the one to mess things up. I’m always in this position.” Ichigo rubs her cheek. “Don’t worry yourself about it Orihime. It might be a blessing in disguise. When you told them about me and Rukia I wasn’t mad at you at all. In fact, I’m glad you cleared that up with them. Having them feed into that lie would have made thing easier for her and Renji. Even if Oichi doesn’t believe us at this moment it’s only a matter of time before they make a noticeable mistake.” Orihime nodded. Ichigo pulled her into a hug. “It’s okay Orihime. I’ll be here for you. I’ll be right by your side.” Orihime blushed at his words and then nodded into his chest.

“Ichigo? Orihime?” They looked to see Momo. “Are you guys okay?” Ichigo smiled. “Yeah, we are fine Momo.” Momo smiled. “Okay…are you sure? I mean did something happen?” Ichigo shook his head. “No, Orihime just got a little to happy eating some good food.” Momo laughed a bit. “You need to make sure you thank Oichi for that. She is cooking most of it.” Ichigo nods. “Yeah, but we will wait until after her shift. She’s in a really good mood.” Momo smile brightens. “I heard it’s because of the guards was flirting with her haha.” Ichigo rolled his eyes. “Come on Orihime. We can go sit in the entertainment room. Momo can you bring us some strawberry smoothies.” Momo nodded. “Coming right up.” She left and Ichigo dragged Orihime to the room. Moments later the door to the men’s bathroom opened up and Grimmjow walked out. “Hmm…seems like I’ll get my chance sooner than I thought.” He smirked slightly and headed out the door.  

8 o’clock came around and Oichi made sure everything was set up for the next manager. She made sure the schedule was set up for this week and next. Right now she had to write them and print them out. They were still working on the program where it would allow her to post the schedule on the private site so the employees wouldn’t have to keep coming back and forth to see when they were working. As she waited she heard a loud voice coming up stairs. “WHERE IS THE MAIN MANAGER!!!” Oichi turned to see a young girl with light green hair and pink eyes. She was wearing the manager outfit She looked like a middle school student. Oichi walked up to her. “Um that would be me. Are you Lilynette?” Lilynette looked up and down at Oichi. “Hmm…you look like a decent person. How old are you?” “I’m 24.” “You married?” “I’ll be getting married soon.” “You got kids?” “No.” “Is that your real hair color?” “Yes.” “The purple to?” “It’s all natural.” “When is your birthday.” “The 22nd of this month.” “Why are you answering all my questions so calmly?” “Well it’s only natural for you to be curious about someone you never met.” Lilynette crossed her arms. “Hmmm…I guess you speak the truth. You got any questions for me?” “No, I know all I need to know. You were highly request from your boss and so far, everything has been going well. I trust that you will have no problems but if you do please don’t hesitate to call me if you need me.”

Lilynette looked pleased at this. “I see. You are a very generous manager but, don’t think I’ll be listening to everything you say. If I don’t like something I will change it!” Oichi smiles. “That all fine and dandy as long as you give me some notice first. I welcome change but, if it does not help our sales within some time I will have to ask you to change it back.” Lilynette smiled. “Alright. I can work with that.” She held out her hand. “My name is Lilynette Gingerbuck! It’s nice to meet you!” Oichi grabbed her hand. “My name is Oichi Yamamoto. It’s nice to meet you as well.” Lilynette raised her eyebrow. “Yamamoto?” Oichi giggled. “No relations as far as I know. Never even met the guy.” Lilynette laughed. “Okay well I’ll get started.” Oichi nodded and went down stairs to the employee room.

When she walked in she went to a wall screen. It and the café name on it. She touched it and a bunch of options came up. She tapped on clock out/in button. She waited and then placed her code in. The screen told her what time she clocked out and went back to the main screen. “I wonder if I can get that changed to.” She says opening her locker. There was a extra set of uniforms and shoes. She took off her high heels and grabbed her flats. She slipped them on and grabbed her bag and head out the back. She grabbed her phone and dialed Renji’s number.
It rung a few times, longer than usual. It then went to voicemail. She frowned and called two more times only to get the same thing. Oichi rolled her eyes. “Must be at work…no surprise.” She walked through the back patio that was yet to be open. It had lights on the gates and beside the sidewalk so she could see where she was going. She also saw Ichigo and Orihime waiting for her. “Hey you two. I thought you guys went home already.” Orihime looked down. “Oichi…there is something we have to tell you.”

Oichi raised her eyebrow. “Okay…” They took a seat in the outdoor section. “So what’s up?” Ichigo and Orihime looked at each other. “Oichi. I’m so sorry. I’m sorry if this will affect our friendship forever. I’m sorry!” Orihime blurted out. Oichi gave her a confused looked. “Um, Okay? I’m not sure what you are sorry for so why don’t you just tell me.” Ichigo patted Orihime’s back. “Go ahead.” Orihime sighed and looked at Oichi. “A few days ago…I went to see Rukia at work. I had heard she was sick so I brought her a bento box. I didn’t cook it so I brought things I knew she like so, that my food wouldn’t make her even more sick because then that would be a waste since I was just trying to make her feel better and…” “Orihime…your blabbing again.” Oichi says chuckling. Orihime played with her fingers. “I’m sorry…I went to see Rukia but she wasn’t there. I was told that she had gone to Renji to talk about something so I went to Renji’s department. W-When I got there the door was cracked open. I didn’t mean to pry but, I peaked in and saw Renji and Rukia talking…” Orihime paused. “Okkayyy…you saw Renji and Rukia talking? Why are you sorry about that?” Orihime gulp. “O-Oichi…Rukia and Renji has been…seeing each other behind your back…” Oichi’s smile started to leave her face. “Huh?” “I heard them Oichi. Renji said that he and Rukia has been seeing each other for three years and not only that Rukia is…she’s…” Orihime looked down. “She’s what?” Oichi says softly. Orihime shivered. “P-Pregnant…that’s why she had to leave Ichigo…”

Oichi sat back. “So…what you are tell me is that my best friend and my fiancé has been sleeping behind my back for three years? As well as my best friend is pregnant by my fiancé as well??” Orihime nodded. “I see…do you have any proof of this? A video? Pictures?” Orihime said nothing. “So you have nothing?? You have nothing to support this insane and stupid accusations!?” “Oichi…” Oichi slammed her hand on the table. “Renji would never cheat on me!? We have been together for six damn years SIX!!! He brought me this ring!! He wants to marry me!!” Orihime tears up. “No, he doesn’t!! That ring wasn’t meant for you! It was for Rukia!!” Oichi froze. She looked down at her finger. “I heard him say that Oichi. Please believe me…I saw them…” “Enough…” They look at her. “Oichi…” “I don’t want to hear anymore…” “But!” “I said I don’t want to hear anymore!!!” Oichi yelled. She got up. “How dare you come to me and say that to me!! He doesn’t want to marry me!!? He’s cheating on me!!!? Why would I believe something like that!!?” Oichi says tearing up. Ichigo frowned. “Oichi please…” “No…I’m going home. Renji loves me. He does. He would not go behind my back like this and even if he did he wouldn’t have let it go one for three years! He could have…would have told me…” She bites her lips. She grabs her bag and runs off to her house. “Oichi wait!” Ichigo yells out. Orihime broke out in tears. “I’m terrible. I’m a terrible friend. What have I done?”

Oichi ran to her house. She whipped the tears away as she by passed people on the street. ‘He couldn’t have…He wouldn’t…he loves me so why? Why??’ She reached her house in a matter or minutes she ran to the door and jumbled the keys in her hands. She unlocked it and slammed the door open scaring Renji who had a tray of food in his hands. The food was sent to the floor. “What the hell is your problem!” Renji says frowning. “I just made that for you and everything. Do you know how long it took me to get it right?”

Oichi ignored him and ran upstairs. She opened the door and looked around. The bed room was clean but there was a sweet-smelling scent lingering. She opened the bathroom door and the closet. Renji walked in. “What is going on Babe?” Oichi ignored him again and raced down stairs. She checked the other bed rooms and bathrooms. She checked the garage and the basement and attic. She looked everywhere until Renji grabbed her in the living room. “Oichi!! What is going on!!” On instinct Oichi smacked him in the face. Renji was stun at this. Realizing what she did Oichi snapped out of her panic mode. “Oh my gosh! Renji I’m so sorry!” Renji rubbed his face. “It’s okay…? Never slapped me before so tell me what has gotten you in a panic??”
Oichi frowned. “…Renji are you…cheating on me?” Renji eyes widen a bit. “What?” “Are you cheating on me??? Have you been cheating on me!!” She grabbed his shirt. “Have you!?” “Babe calm down! No! Why would I be cheating on you! I love you. You’re going to be my wife. Why would I ruin that??” He grabbed her hands. “What happened? Tell me??” Oichi tears up as she told him what Orihime had said.

Renji was frowning. “She said all that and you believed her without any proof?” “N-No I told her that you wouldn’t do that to me. She didn’t have anything to back up her statement but, lately…you have been acting different to me. Your more distant from me and we are starting to argue over things we never argue about before.” Renji sighs and wraps his arms around her. “Oh Babe…do you know how much I love you. I wouldn’t have given you that ring if I didn’t…” He smiles down at her. “Don’t worry. I promise you that you are the only one for me. I don’t know what Orihime thought she heard but all that matters is that you and I are together forever.” Oichi smiles as he bends down to kiss her deeply.

He picks her up. Her legs wrap around his waist. He moves his kiss to her neck. “I guess I’ll have to show you how much I love you tonight huh?” He lays her down on the couch. He kisses her again as one of his hands runs down her waist. He grinds up against her. Oichi moans out just a bit until she felt something weird. Usually when Renji grinds up against he quickly gets hard but, even now she couldn’t fell any anything. She frowned in the kiss. Renji sat up. He cursed mentally. He couldn’t really get it up since he was with Rukia earlier. “L-Looks like I’m…” Oichi pushed him off her. “Forget it…I’m going to bed.” Oichi says. She headed upstairs. Renji sighs. “Fuck…”

Later that night Oichi locked Renji out the room. He ended up sleeping in the guest room. Oichi was looking at her ring and going back through what Orihime had said. ‘The ring was meant for Rukia…’ Oichi frowned. Its true Renji did not give her this ring. He didn’t ask. She found this ring in his dresser when she was looking for his head band and she came across it. When she found it she quickly went to Renji and asked him about it. He looked flustered and a bit upset that she found it but he smiled. He told her that he was trying to wait for a better time. She had just assumed that the ring was for her and she jumped on Renji crying out yes…she never even considered to ask any questions like why the ring was bit small for her finger. Oichi bit her lips as she turned over. Her heart was hurting more than ever. She didn’t know what to do. She didn’t have any proof that Renji and Rukia was sleeping together so she couldn’t go over and accuse Rukia. Her brother would have her head if she did that. She tears up as buries her face in her pillow.

The next morning a tired Oichi got up. Her face was red and puffy from crying herself to sleep. She started her shower and took off her clothes. She was just putting her hair up in a bun when there was a knock at the door. “Babe…can I come in please?” Oichi sighs mentally. She didn’t want anything to do with Renji this morning. Not while her head was all jumbled up. She grabbed a towel and wrapped it around herself. She walked into the room and opened the door. As soon as she did she was pulled into a kiss. Oichi frowned and tried pushing him away but Renji wasn’t letting go. He moved forward pushing her back. Oichi turned her head from the kiss. “Renji I have to work…” Renji ignored her and pulled the towel from her. “S-Stop. I’m not in the mood for this. I have to work…” She pushes Renji away from her. Renji frowned. “First you wanted to have sex and now your pushing me away!?” “I don’t want nothing to do with you right now!” Oichi says grabbing her towel. “How can I trust anything you even say!” Renji grabbed her. “Oichi listen to me. I am not cheating on you!” “Was this ring for me Renji?? Was it!!” Oichi asked. Renji frowned. “Yes…yes it was. I got it a size to small and I was hiding it because I needed it to get re sized. What do I look like giving you a smaller ring. When you found it I was simply shocked that you found it. It was embarrassing to tell you no when you looked so happy.”

Oichi looks down. “Do you really love me Renji…If not I just want you to tell me. I don’t want to be dragged around like this. If there is someone else let me know now. Tell me so that I…” Renji kisses her. He pulls back. “There is no one babe.” He kisses her over and over. Oichi wasn’t sure what to do. She didn’t know what to believe. Was Renji really telling her the truth or feeding her with lies. Renji pressed his lower half against her. He was hard. He started pushing her towards the bathroom. He took off his t-shirt and his pants. He wasn’t wearing any underpants. “I want you.” He whispers. He kissed her neck and ran his hands down her back down to her butt. Oichi sighs softly as her body tingled as they got in the shower.

Days passed and thing got worse for Oichi and Renji. Unsure of how to feel about what Orihime had told her Oichi started doubting her and Renji’s relationship. It led to many tiring arguments. I got to the point they couldn’t even sleep in the same room anymore. At work Oichi tried masking the stress that she was going through but her workers could tell something was going on.
On the 20th Oichi was cleaning up. Grimmjow was there watching her. Her face was puffy and she had bags under her eyes. He frowned. Ever since he started coming here he had felt some sort of connection to her. He wasn’t sure what it was yet, but, he had this desire for her to be his. Of course, he could say that to her since she hates it when he objectifies her or any woman. Orihime and Ichigo walked over with worried expressions. “Oichi…” Oichi looked at them. “Oh hey there…you can take a seat and someone will be with you shortly. “Oichi I’m sorry. I really am.” Orihime says. Oichi smiled slightly. “It’s okay Orihime please don’t apologize. My mind right now is still confused. I don’t know whose word to believe or what to trust. Right now, I just want to work.” She says. “I’m sure it will work out in the end…right?” She tries to put up a front but it was difficulted and painful for her friends to watch. Ichigo sighs and pulls Orihime away. “Let’s give her some space for now.”

Not wanting to come home Oichi ended up working all the way up to closing time at 11pm for the café. Surprisingly Grimmjow had stayed with her. “Grimmjow? Why are you still here?” “I plan on taking you home.” Oichi titled her head. “I don’t need a ride home.” Grimmjow pointed out the window. It was raining. “As I said it’s my job to make sure everyone here is safe. I don’t feel like here my boss mouth if you were to purposely get sick.” Oichi sighs. “I see. Then thank you.”
The café part is closed now so we can go downstairs.

Walking down stairs they saw Luppi and at the bar. He looked just as young and Lilynette. He had short and curly black hair and lavender eyes. He also had three pink stars above his left eyebrow. “Going home already boss lady?” Oichi nodded. “Yes, please make sure to lock the door.” Luppi waved. “Yes, yes I know. Your face looks so ugly right now. I don’t know what’s going on at home but don’t bring it to work.” Grimmjow narrowed his eyes and walked up to him. He grabbed Luppi by his head and slammed it into the bar table. “How about you shut your ass up and do some damn work!” He pressed his head down on the table harder, making it crack. “O-Ow!! That hurts you bastard!!” Luppi yelled flailing his arms. Oichi frowned and grabbed Grimmjow’s arm. “Stop that!” She yelled. Grimmjow growled and let Luppi go. Luppi rubbed his head. “What was that for!” Grimmjow ignored him as Oichi pulled him into the employee room. Luppi glared daggers at the door before he pouted. “Dumbass…didn’t have to go so far. Jeez. I was just kidding.”

“Don’t hurt the employees.” She says grabbing her stuff and clocking out. “Yeah, whatever, he needs to watch his mouth.” “Just because he called me ugly?” “You’re not ugly. If you were then I wouldn’t be wasting my time around you.” Oichi looked at him. “Meaning?” Grimmjow rolled his eyes. “Your fucking cute Oichi. You should be insult when someone calls you ugly.” Oichi felt her cheeks heat up a bit. “Your silly Grimmjow. I might be cute in most people eyes but other people might have different taste. I might be super ugly in someone else’s eyes.” “I doubt that.” Oichi smiles as they head for the back door. “Do you want to get some drinks or something before you go back home?” Grimmjow asked. “No, just take me home please.” Grimmjow nodded as he grabs an umbrella. He opens the door to the pouring down rain. They head out to the car. Grimmjow helps her in the car and then gets in the driver’s seat. He drives off. Oichi was watching the rain. She was strongly considering taking Grimmjow up on those drinks. She didn’t want to be in the same house as Renji but with her state of mind she may do something she might regret.

“It’s right up here, just turn in the driveway.” Oichi says pointing out her house. “Damn you do live close.” “Yeah, but thanks for the ride.” All the lights in the house were off but the living room and kitchen. Oichi sighs as Grimmjow parked the car. Grimmjow looked at her sadden face. It was hurting his chest and it was making him mad at the same time. “If you change your mind about the drinks then call me anytime.” Oichi smiles at him and nods. “Thanks, Grimmjow.” She opens the door and gets out. She closes it and runs to the door. She unlocks the doors and waves at him as he pulls outs. She walks inside.  

Once inside Oichi shook herself off and shivered a bit. She headed upstairs for a nice shower. As she got closer to the door she heard movement. She frowned as she walked more slowly. She could faintly hear moaning coming from her room. Her heart started to race as she stood at the door. She opened the door and flip on the switch to the room. Her eyes widen as Renji and Rukia sat in bed. Rukia quickly covered herself up, Renji was just as shock as Oichi. “B-Babe…I can explain…”

CHAPTER TWO PART ONE
(MA PARTS HAVE BEEN REMOVED)



It was July 2nd, Oichi was finally heading to the new and improve café’ Now renamed as Sweetness Aroma. She had been called, along with other employees to a meeting about the reopening, scheduling, uniforms, and the manager for the new spot. Since it was hot today she was wearing a strapless blue and white stripe dress and black flats. Her hair was in a bun and her batman bag was on her back. She was texting Renji on her way there. He had to stay late at the office for a few nights and would be using the guest bedrooms. Oichi frowned at that but during this time was when people were trying to get jobs. July was a very popular month for them.

However, things were becoming a bit strange between them. In the morning he’d make sure to give her a kiss on the cheek before he left. Now it was just a ‘good bye babe’ comment. He stayed at work longer then he usually did, like now. Renji was a hard worker but he didn’t like getting major overtime since Byakuya made sure he was working 24/7. Another thing that was bothering her was that he was becoming distant. He didn’t talk to her as much nor did they have their private moments together. “Maybe it’s just overstress or something…” She sighed. “Or maybe I’m just over thinking things.” She rubbed her head.

Her phone rings. It was Renji. “Hello?” “Hey babe, you made it to the café yet?” “I’m about to…” “Alright. Play it cool. Even though we both know that you’re going to get that manager spot.” “Yeah…” “You don’t sound to confident. With that sort of attitude, you won’t get the position.” Oichi sighs. “Your right…” “Well let me know what happens. I’ll be ready to celebrate on the good news. Gotta go.” “Alright, Have a good day. I lov…” Renji hangs up before she could finish. Oichi frowns down at the phone. “Is everything really okay between us…”

At the café Grimmjow, Yammy, and Nnoitra were standing by the door. They were watching as the employees walked in. “Man…this is boring…” Nnoitra says leaning on the wall. Yammy was watching the people walk in. “Hmm…cute girls, girly looking men, hey some muscles.” “Must be them working from our side. Those frail bodies of those chicks and girly men aren’t going to cut it when heavy lifting is involved.” Grimmjow says. Some girls walked by them giggling and waving at Grimmjow. Nnoitra rolled his eyes. “Looks like you already got some fans. Make sure they are over 18.” Grimmjow frowned. “Fuck off. I’m not interested in young girls unlike yourself.” Nnoitra licked his lips. “Don’t knock it until you try it.” “Freak…” Grimmjow mumbled.

Finally reaching the café, Oichi was in awe. There were black petal gates that surrounded the building with a patio on the outside for the customers to eat outside. The small café was now two stories high. Looking up at the second floor she could see some workers still in there working. The name ‘Sweetness Aroma’ Was written in cursive on the front of the building. “Wow…” Oichi was speechless. It was hard to believe that this was the small café she used to work at. “Hey Girl!!” Oichi turned around and hit someone’s chest. She was sent falling to the ground. “Ow…” She rubbed her face. “Get the hell out of my way!!” Oichi looked up to see a muscular man with an apron on. “Stupid girl, is all the bitches here as dumbstruck as you. Don’t you see a professional when you see one!” Oichi frowned as she got up. She brushed herself off. “Sorry…I don’t won’t any trouble…” She turns around to go to the café but she was grabbed by the man. “Sorry!!? You blocked my path, ran into me, and think sorry is enough to cover it!?” He tightens his grip around her arm. “Ow! That hurts…let me go!” “Not until you apologize properly. I say…how about 100,000 dollars as a sorry for blocking my way.” “What!? I did nothing to you that would cost you anything!” Oichi blurted out. The man growled. “I had to quit my job just to come work at this run down café! I ran a 4 star restaurant and was moving up in the world when they forced me to come work here! The least you people can do is make up for my suffering! Now are you going to pay or is this going to get ugly!” Oichi frowned. “Even if I had the money I wouldn’t give it to you.” The man frowned. “What was that!?” He raised his hand. “I’ll teach you some manners you…”

Suddenly a foot was in the man’s face. The man tenses up as the foot pushed against his face and sent him rolling a few feet down the road. Oichi stumbled and fell but was caught by a pair of arms. “Well, and here I thought the day was going to be boring.” Oichi looked up to see a tall skinny man with black hair and an eyepatch. He was grinning as he walked to the man. “While I don’t care for the argument in general my job is to make sure snobs like you don’t touch our things. It would make my boss look bad.” The man looked up rubbing his nose. “W-Who do you think you are bastard!! Do you have any idea who I am?”

Oichi watched as the man punched him in the face. “I think that’s the question I should be asking.” “I swear he gets all the good times.” Oichi was helped up. She looked up to the man who helped her. He had spikey blue hair and blue eyes. He looked down at her. “You alright?” Oichi blushes and looks down to her arm. There was a bruise forming on her arm. The man frowned. “Come with me.” He grabbed her wrist and led her in the café. Inside Oichi was amazed at everything. The setup, the size, they even had a bar and an upstairs!? “Wow…”

She saw the employees and a few new faces. One of them surprisingly being Rukia and Momo. They saw her and got up. “Oichi!?” The employee’s looked over to her and frowned. Some of them got up as well. Oichi waved at them, signaling them that she was okay. All eyes were on them as she was lead to the back room. “Take a seat.” Oichi took a seat at the table and watched the man go for the first aid kit. “Um…thank you Mr…” “It’s Grimmjow. No Mister.” Oichi nodded. “Thank you Grimmjow.” Grimmjow walked back over with the kit and took out some ointment and bandages. “Let me see your arm.” Oichi showed him her left arm. He put some ointment on it. “Was that all that guy did?” Oichi nodded. “Yes.” Oichi was looking at Grimmjow’s face. He looked familiar to her but she couldn’t quite place it. “Quit staring” Oichi jumped a bit at his sharp tone. She turned her head. “S-Sorry…it’s just that you look familiar…” Grimmjow grabbed the bandages and started to wrap her arm.

While he did that he couldn’t help but to gaze back at her. She had a nice rack for starters and her body style was pretty decent. His eyes went up to her face. She was cute. Red eyes and a flustered face. He looked down at her arm. Her skin was soft and he could smell a hint of strawberry and bananas on her. He then noticed the ring on her finger. He sighed mentally. ‘A cutie like her taken huh.’ He looked at her neck. ‘Doesn’t look like her love life is going well. If it were me she’d be covered in hickys and bite marks and it doesn’t look like she wears makeup.’

He sat back. “There. That should do it.” Oichi rubbed her arm and then smiled softly at him. For a spilt second Grimmjow felt something pierce his heart. “Thank you so much for your help Grimmjow.” She got up. He got up as well. “No problem. If anyone is giving you trouble let one of us know. We are here to make sure everything goes smoothly.” Oichi nodded. “Yes, I will.” He led her back out where Rukia and Momo were waiting. “Oichi what happened?” Oichi smiles at them. “I’m fine really. Just a little run in with overly rude guy.” “Your arm though…” “I said I’m fine. Grimmjow wrapped it up for me.” They looked at Grimmjow who was already walking away. ‘So her name is Oichi…cute name.’

Once everyone was gather in the building Jushiro, Unohana, Shunsui, and Kaname walked in. “Good morning everyone. For those who do not know me, my name is Jushiro Ukitake. I am the head of the 12 division of the Soul Society prevention center. I oversee businesses just as this one.” Jushiro says smiling. “Now, I’m sure you read all the emails we have sent you so you have a good idea of what we are trying to do here. I just want to thank you for being here today. You all are helping us take the first step into joining our city together. We want you to work hard and show us that both sides can co-exist.” He steps aside for Shunsui to come forward. Behind him his assistants Lisa and Nanao where placing six figures, with white sheets over them. “Good morning. I’m Shunsui Kyoraku. I’m with the 8th division. I also oversee things like this however, I end up being the one to do the most work when it comes to doing the actual building and bothersome things like that. However, for the most part I took the chance to get the uniforms ready.”

There were gasp going through the employee’s. The girls had a look of horror on their face. Shunsui was famous for being quite a pervert. What kind of exotic get up would he make them wear. Shunsui rubbed his head as he saw their faces. “Now, Now don’t worry. All my ideas were rejected since they weren’t in the guidelines.” The girls sighed out in relief. Shunsui chuckled. He snapped his fingers and Lisa and Nanao pulled the sheets off the figures.

On the right there were two uniforms, one for girls and one for guys, that matched the downstairs area. For the girls uniform it was a white shirt with a green skirt with a choice black flats. For the guys uniform they had a white shirt and pants and a green vest with a fish tail, a choice of a tie or bow tie. “These uniforms will be for the employees that will be working down here in the restaurant.” Shunsui says. He moves to the uniforms on the left. The girls uniform was a white ruffles shirt with a black vest and black skirt and flats. The boys uniform was a white shirt with tan pants and black vest and shoes. “These will be the uniform for the employees working upstairs in the café area.” He then walked to the middle. The girl uniform was mix with green and black. The top was sleeveless, It was green and white with arm sleeves that went from the elbow to the wrist. The skirt was black with thigh high stockings and black flats. The guy uniform was a green shirt with white vest and black pants with shoes. “These will be for the managers and shift leaders.”

“Shift leaders?” Momo says. Shunsui nodded. “Yes, since this place is way bigger then the first one it will need more managers and shift leaders to help with the slack. It’s not a one person’s job. There is one general manger, one assistant general manager, and four shift leaders. The main general manager will of course be in chargers of both floors, hiring process, scheduling, keeping deadlines tight for expectation and so forth. The assistant general manager is there as a backbone to cover other things like making sure all the systems are functioning, help with the hiring process, help between floors and so on. The shift leaders are also mangers. There has to be a manager in order for this café to function. These six people will be in charge of the employees, given to the keys to the store, the shift leaders do have the authority to fire employees only when they are given the okay by the GM’s. There will be more explained in the emails we sent you. So now I’ll discuss who the new managers are.”

Lisa took out a list and handed it to him. “Alright, now we picked out the managers based on their, skills, past jobs, and relationships with the employees. Since this is a teamwork process it wouldn’t make much since to give you a new face as your boss right off the back.” Momo nudged Oichi. “Who do you think it will be? I kinda hope it’s you since you been here longer than most.” Oichi shrugs. “I don’t know and there are a lot of people here who have more experience than me. They are more qualified then me despite the fact, that I’ve been here since our high school days.” Momo smiles. “You can be so modest sometimes. I like that about you and at the same time I worry for you.” Oichi smiles at her as Shunsui cleared his throat. He was looking at them smiling a bit. Both Mom and Oichi blushed and looked away from his gaze. He chuckled and looked down at the list. “Okay, so first up is the GM. We talked a lot about this and decided to give this position to…” His eyes landed on Oichi. “Oichi Yamamoto.” Oichi’s eyes widen. “Huh!? Me!?” The employees smiled and clapped for her.

Oichi rubbed her head. “Um…thank you…?” When the clapping dyed down Shunsui kept his eyes on Oichi. “Ms. Yamamoto. I can see you are confused about our choice? I can tell you are a very modest girl. Do not worry. We didn’t pick you based on your popularity alone.” “My popularity?” Shunsui nodded. “Yes, you are very popular in the café from what I have read. Your red eyes match the color of a fiery passion of climbing through the ranks yet, they also sparkle so innocently when you speak to your customers, showing them the care and attention they need. Your unique natural hair has people wanting to see you show it out more. I hear that there was poll to even vote if you should cut your hair or not. Even polls on what style you should wear your hair. I can tell by reading the reviews how much effort you put in making sure everyone enjoys their time in your present.” Oichi rubbed her cheeks. She felt a bit embarrassed about all the things Shunsui was saying to her. All she did was do her job. She really didn’t think she was going to get the
manager spot because of it.

“More so…” Shunsui kept going. “We noticed that you were the assistant manager of the last Café. Though you didn’t know about the scams the last GM was doing you were able to pull your staff together and even get repairs done to the shop. You encouraged their teamwork and helped where you were needed. Just about everyone here knows you and respects you and I think that make you perfect for starting out this new café. Will you accept this position?” All eyes were on Oichi. Oichi sighs. “Okay. Thank you for giving me this position.” Shunsui nods. Oichi felt a poke. She looked to see Momo smiling. “Tollddd youuuu…” She sings out. Oichi rolls her eyes.
“Next is going to be the assistant manager which will be a new addition to the café. Rukia Kuchiki.” Rukia nodded. “She does well in marketing so she can be a great use to promoting new sales and helping with the prices and so forth.” Oichi smiled. “Looks like we are going to be working closely together huh?” Rukia smiled slightly but then turned her head from her quickly. Oichi raised an eyebrow at her. “Rukia? Are you okay? You look a bit sick.” “I’m fine.” Rukia quickly says.

“The shift managers will be two from out department and two from Aizen’s department. “Momo Hinamori, Kira Lzuru, Lilynette Gingerbuck and Luppi Antenor.” There were a few whispers hearing this. Oichi looked around and then raised her hand. “Yes Ms. Yamamoto?” “The last two managers. Are they here? So, we can see them?”

Kaname walked up. “No, they are overseas right now closing down some things. They will be here next week when the store opens back up.” Oichi nodded. “I see…well…do you have anything I can have for them? Something I can read up on? I’d like to know who I am working with and I’d like to make sure everyone else will be comfortable with them as well.” Kaname nodded. “Yes, you and Ms. Kuchiki will be receiving all the personal files on all the employees new, old, and future. Any more questions.” “Yes, In the email we were sent about this whole thing being a truce or whatnot do we have both of your words that no harm will come to the employees working?” Kaname rubbed his chin. “Quite an interesting one…” “Told you so.” Jushiro says chuckling.
Kaname waves his hand. The guys who helped Oichi a few moments ago walked over. “Do not worry. We are very aware how harsh our side of the city can be which is why we placed a few look outs around the store. They would be like your security.” He pointed to the tall man with black hair and one eye patch. “This is Nnoitra. The lead…” “Hold it right there…I ain’t no lead in this crappy job. I got other shit to do then to babysit these sad lumps of flesh.” Oichi frowned at this comment.

Kaname ignored him. “The huge on behind him is Yammy. You may not be seeing much of him since he is needed else were for our company and this is Grimmjow. He is usually in charge of the security force around here so you will be seeing him a lot around this area now.” Grimmjow looked around. The girls were looking at him with blushing faces. He rolled his eyes slightly until they landed on Oichi. She was frowning a bit with her arms crossed. Even when frowning she looked pretty cute. Oichi’s eyes shifted to him and she smiled. Grimmjow quickly looked elsewhere. Oichi let out a light giggle as she listens to Kaname go on about insuring their safety.

Renji was humming to himself as he sat at home. While Oichi was at the meeting he had come home to collect something. He had been trying to think of a way to let Oichi know about him and Rukia but it wasn’t easy. Now, he was trying to distant himself away from her. He didn’t want to start having lingering feelings when his mind was made up. Rukia was having his kid and she had already left Ichigo. Now it was his turn but, before that he had somethings to take care of something. He walked into the room and opened the dresser. He moved some clothes out and opened a secret compartment. He pulled out the papers to the house. They were all in his and Oichi’s name but he was going to change all of that. “Sorry babe…but this is going to be the end of us.”

Later, that evening after the meeting was over Oichi was walking back home. She was on the phone with Nel. “I was thinking we all go out on your birthday. We can head to the club down town with Ichigo since his is the 15th. We can celebrate them together!” Oichi rubbed her cheek. “I don’t think I have clothes to go to a club.” Nel gasp. “Then we need to go shopping!!” Oichi smiled. “Yeah, let me work a bit at the new café though. Get this stuff flowing and what not.” “How did it go? Did you get the top spot?” “…Yeah.” Oichi says. Nel screamed through the phone. “I knew it!!! I told you that you were going to get the job! Congratulations, now we really must go party down Haha! I’m going to call Rukia and Orihime to let them know!” “Well Rukia is the assistants GM. She and Momo works at the café now.” “What!? No way!!!” “Yea, shocked me to. So, she and I will be working together now.” “I wonder if I can get a job there then…hmmm…” Oichi smiled. “I hope you would consider it. You can work in the bar area. You’re very good at making drinks. Just don’t get your hopes high of having special treatment. I want to treat everyone as equals.” “I know Oichi. I understand but, I do need a better job than working at that bar downtown.”

Oichi laughs. “Then yes, I can get your paperwork set up tomorrow and have your uniform ready. They got a whole storage full on them for new employees and if you want I can set up a little area for Grayson if you can’t find a babysitter. “Aw, thanks Oichi for now though, he’s with his father so no worries this week.” Oichi thought back to Grimmjow at work. “You know, you never did tell us who Grayson’s father was or look like.” “Eh? I never thought I needed to.” “Yeah but, today I saw someone who reminded me a bit of Grayson I think…maybe…I don’t know.” Oichi says sighing rubbing her head. Nel laughed. “You need a drink. Get home safe. We are going shopping for some clothes and get you and Ichigo party ready!” Oichi laughs before Nel hangs up. “A club huh. It has been a while since me and Renji went out together with good friends. Maybe that would perk us back up haha.”

Arriving home, with plenty of times to spare, Oichi opened the door and heard the TV on. She smiled and walked in. “Renji?” Renji was eating a sandwich watching a movie. He looked to see Oichi. “Oh, Hey Babe. So how the meeting go?” Oichi nods. “I got the spot.” Renji smiles and puts his food down. He got up and walked to her. He pulled her into a hug. “See what did I tell you! This calls for a beer!” Oichi giggles. “You know I don’t drink beer. How about we celebrate in another way?” She says wrapping her arms around him, pressing her body close to his. Renji frowned and sighs. “Not tonight. I’m pretty tired actually.” Oichi looked down and moved her arms from around him. “…Did I do something wrong?” Renji raised his eyebrow at her. “Huh?” Oichi looked up at him. “Did I do something wrong!?” “No, I mean you just got home so you couldn’t have done anything wrong.” “Then why have you been so distant from me!?” Renji rubs his head. “Distant…” “I’m not an idiot Renji. You have been away from the house the past couple of weeks, you won’t speak to me like you usually do, you won’t touch me or even tried to have sex with me. So it must be something I did wrong right?”

“I told you that you didn’t do anything. My Gosh…this is one of things I hate about your personality.” Oichi frowned. “Hate?” “Yes, hate. When I tell you that you didn’t do anything why do you have to go on into a detail statement? I mean I have been working to make sure you live comfortably. You think that is easy to do without some type of stress!?” Renji yelled. Oichi bit her lips. He didn’t have to yell at her like that. Renji sighs and rubs the space between his eyes. “Look, I’m tired. I just want to relax and watch this movie okay.” He turned around and went to sit back down. Oichi was hurt. Why was he being so mean to her. She turned around and went upstairs to the bedroom.

Renji watched her go and then sighs out. He hated to be mean to her but it was a small step in his plan. Telling Oichi now about him and Rukia is like asking to have his throat slit. He needed to soften her up more mentally and make her believe that it’s her fault. In order to do that he need to keep his distant and keep up this crappy tone towards her. He rubbed his head. ‘Sorry babe…but for me to be happy I have to do this.’

On Monday morning around 9am Oichi was getting ready for work the café opened up at 11 but she had to get things ready before it opened. Renji was in the shower. They haven’t spoken to each other since yesterday. No good night, No good morning, No kiss on the cheek, No Babe comment. Just complete silence. Oichi looked at herself in the mirror. The uniforms had gotten to the house late last night. The skirt was a bit short to her liking but it was a very cute outfit. She put her hair in a high ponytail. She didn’t wear makeup since it broke her out. So instead she put some chap stick on and light brown lip gloss on. She pressed her lips together and put on her sweetest smile. At that time Renji walked out in just a towel and saw her smile. He felt his face heat up a bit but he shook his head and turned away.

When she felt ready Oichi grabbed her bag and her flats and headed downstairs. Renji sighed mentally. It was hard to tell if she was mad or sad right now. Oichi went to the kitchen and grabbed a banana. She peels it and starts to eat it. Her phone started to ring. Placing her bag on the table, she digs in it and grabs it. It was Momo. “Hello?” “Good morning Oichi! Since we are working together now I wanted to know if you needed a ride to work today?” Oichi smiled. “Yes, that would be nice Momo. Thank you.” “Alright, I’ll be there in a bit. I’m picking up Rukia as well.” “Okay see you then.” She hangs up. “Who was that?” Renji asked walking in. “Momo…she’s picking me up for work.” Oichi says putting her phone away.

Renji looked her up and down. “Is that the new uniforms?” “Yeah, for the managers.” She says cutting the conversation short. There was silence between them and it was becoming awkward now. Renji frowned. “Babe…about last night. I didn’t mean to snap. It’s just you caught me on a tired day.” “You’re always working…” Oichi says. “Yeah, but I’m working to make sure you have a nice and easy life.” Oichi looked at him. “I didn’t ask to have a nicer life Renji. I didn’t ask to be taken care of or to be pampered. I can take care of myself just fine. I just wanted my fiancé to celebrate something big that happened to career. I’ve told you that many times over.” Renji frowned. “So, it’s wrong for me to want to give you a nice and easy life? It’s wrong for me to want to take care of you!? Do you even hear yourself right now?” Oichi frowned back at him. “I hear myself very clearly! You do not have to work yourself into the ground just for my sake! I have a job and you have a job we can take care of things together! Why is it so hard for you to ask me for help!! Do you think I like watching you run yourself into the ground just because you want to pamper me??” “Because as a man I need to be able to provide for whoever I please! What do I look like getting taken care of by you!?”

Oichi’s eyes widen a bit slightly. “So, your pride!? Your worried about your stupid pride!? Renji, I’m not saying that you have to let me take care of you! I am saying that we have to do some things as a team, partners, together! It’s simple as that and your acting like its killing you to let me do something like help! I can do without certain things Renji. I don’t need all these expensive things and you don’t have to force yourself to think that way. I just want to be by your side day after day. Yes, I like the fact that you want to take care of me but right now we need to be saving for our wedding, a car, this house, and things that we BOTH need!” Renji sighs. “I don’t need help Oichi. I have everything covered and it’s getting annoying that you keep saying that.” Oichi crossed her arms. “You’re the one trying to start something early this morning but you know what, fine whatever.” She grabbed her bag. “I don’t know what the hell your problem is but I won’t stand here and let you take it out on me. All I want to do is help and your pushing me away.” She says leaving. Luckily, Momo was pulling up.

Oichi walked over to see Rukia in the passenger seat. She got in the back in a huff. “Oichi are you okay?” “Let’s just go okay?” Oichi snaps, frowning. Momo and Rukia glanced at each other. They then looked through the window of the house were Renji was frowning at them. “Let’s go Momo…” Rukia says. Momo nodded and backed out the drive way, heading to the café.

CHAPTER ONE


Oichi was walking home after her shift at the café in Karakura city. She was smiling as she hummed. She looked down at her ring on her finger. A 18K white rose engagement ring was on her finger. Her boyfriend of six years, Renji Abarai had proposed to her three years ago. It was the happiest day of her life. He had spent a lot on this ring even though she would have taken something less expensive. She had run across this ring in her room when she was cleaning. She was shocked at seeing and when she confronted Renji he got flustered about her finding it. It was then he proposed to her. Now he wanted a huge wedding with all their friends and family. She wanted something small with close friends and family but Renji said he wanted to show her off as much as possible.

She sighed as she looked up into the sky. It was bit hot today. She was wearing a pair of light blue shorts and a plain white shirt and flats. Her batman backpack was strapped on behind her. Her glasses, that she sometimes wears, were sticking out a small pouch on the bag. She ran her fingers through her black and purple hair. It used to be to her shoulders but she let it grow out down to her back. She was going to cut it some time ago but for some reason her hair was really popular in the café. She didn’t know why and when they heard she was going to cut it everyone through a fit. Passing a toy shop, her bright red eyes spotted a new batman Lego set. “Oooh!!” She quickly went to the window with sparkling eyes. ‘So cool!! I want it! How much is it!!’ She screamed mentally. While looking at Legos she looked at her reflection in the mirror. She frowned as she checked herself out. Her tan skin had gotten slightly darker thanks to the summer sun. If someone looked very close at her chest they could see the batman bra she had under the shirt. She looked down at her hips. ‘Gahh…kinda thick…why do I have to inherit my mom’s hips and butt…’ She looked at her chest. ‘Then again…I’m glad I got the butt and not the chest.’ Her size was C cup slowly working its way up to a D cup or so that’s what she was told by Renji one night. She pouted slightly. ‘He’s such a pervert…’

Ringing was heard, knocking Oichi out her thoughts. She reached into her back pocket and pulled her phone out. It was Renji calling her. She answered. “Hello?” “Hey babe! Where you at?” Oichi started walking “I’m on my way home right now. The café had to close down early today since it’s expanding and all.” “Oh right, I forgot. Congratulations on becoming the manger!” Oichi giggled. “I’m not the manger yet though. Nothing has been officially stated or anything.” “Haa! They would have to be an idiot not to make you the manger. You have been working there since high school. It would be a lost if they didn’t give you want you deserve.” Oichi smiled. “Aw, thanks for the vote of confidence.” Renji chuckled. “So listen, I was thinking of going out to eat with the guys tonight?” “Tonight? Didn’t you go out with them last night to? Mmm…Well it’s not like we had anything planned and you do need a break from work you know.” “Oh my gosh!!! Your like angel!!” Oichi laughed. “You’re so silly. I told you that you didn’t need to call me every time you go out you know. Just leave me a note or something and no planning anything if we have something planned already. Unless it’s dealing with work.” “You are the best. I am sooo lucky to have you as my future wife.”

Oichi blushed slightly. “F-Future wife…it’s so hard to get use to hearing that.” “Is it? I have no issue saying it as loud and proud as I can. OICHI IS GOING TO BE MY WIFE!!!” He yelled through the phone. Oichi’s face turned redder. “R-Renji…” He laughed over the phone then stopped and sighed. “Something wrong?” “Well…it’s just work.” Oichi frowned. “Stuck with paperwork again?” “Yeah…Mr. Kuchiki is working me to the bone.” Oichi smiled. “It’s weird to here you call Byakuya Mr. now…” Renji chuckled.

Renji worked in a company called Soul Society prevention center. It was spilt up into different divisions and handed specific issues. Renji is in the 6th division with his division leader Byakuya Kuchiki, a rich, powerful, yet respectful man. Their division works with job recruitment. They teach people how to act in a job interview, see which job is best for the person, and so forth. Byakuya is very strict with rules and good timing. Renji works directly under him so he gets hit with a lot of paper work. However, their division is currently a lot more popular than the others so they get hit a lot with fans, job applications, and on the rare occasion stalkers.

Oichi smiled at Renji’s tired sighed. “I know its hard sweetie. How about tomorrow I’ll make you some Taiyaki for work?” “Really!?!? On man that sounds really good! I can’t get enough of your Taiyaki…but why not tonight?” Oichi laughed. “Didn’t you just tell me that you were going out with the guys tonight?” “Oh! Right shoot…then yeah! I’ll take you up on that.” Oichi shakes her head. “Speaking of that we are out of milk and eggs. You think you can pick some up?” Oichi turned to see the grocery store. “Good timing. I’m looking right at the store. Send me a picture of the shopping list. I can get some little things out the way.” Just then Oichi heard something break over the phone. “Renji?? What was that?” Renji laughed nervously. “It was nothing. Just bumped into something looking for my hair band.” Oichi smiled. “Did you check in the bathroom? On your hair tie stand?” Renji chuckled. “I didn’t, thanks though.” Oichi smiled. “Alright babe. I’m going to get ready to go out. Love you.” “Love you to Renji. Have fun…” Oichi blushed. “D-Darling…” She says in almost a whispered. There was a paused. “S-So…cute…” Renji mumbles. Oichi quickly hangs up. Her heart was beating so fast. Despite them being together for so long she has never called him anything other than his name and sometimes sweetie but, she called everyone that sometimes. She rubbed her heated face. “So embarrassing…”

Across town in a small restaurant Grimmjow walked in yawning. He looked around and spotted his table. He rubbed his spiky blue hair and walked over to take a seat next to Ulquiorra. Nnoitra and Yammy were sitting in front of them already eating. “Took your ass long enough.” Nnoitra says grabbing his cup of water. His long black hair was in a ponytail. He fixed his eyepatch on his right eye while drinking. His cold black eyes gazed over to a group of girls that had been looking at Grimmjow. “Fuck off. Aizen and his stupid followers wouldn’t leave me the hell alone.” Yammy burped loudly, wiping his mouth his sleeve. “I hear ya. A bunch of pansies if you ask me.” Nnoitra chuckled. “I do admit you speak some truth. I can even take a shit peacefully before I’m asked to do something that isn’t dealing with my department.” Ulquiorra sipped on his tea while his green eyes scanned over a book he was reading. “It’s very annoying indeed.” They looked at him. “Hooo so the loyal dog of Aizen is agreeing with us finally?” Nnoitra says laughing.

Grimmjow sighed as he waited for the waitress to come take his order. “At the very least he should do something about them. How does he expect us to get any work done with his lackies all over our asses? Then we are placed behind fucking schedule! It’s a pain in the ass!” Grimmjow says. Nnoitra frowned. “I hear that. I’m getting sick of this. Were supposed to be on top, given our positions and we are still being treated like second and third-rate employees. I’m getting real sick of it.” Yammy sighs out from eating. “Those dirt bags basically took the company right out from under us…they know everything about us now. No matter how much we complain we still get paid a boat load. What else can we really do?” They looked at Yammy. Nnoitra dropped his fork. “Well…I’ll be damn. That was actually something smart you just said.”

Ulquiorra looks at them. “So, in the end money is what make things better.” Grimmjow leans back in the chair. “Fucking shit…”

The waitress came over. “Sir? What can I get for…Oh? Mr. Jaggerjack. Would you like the regular?” Grimmjow nodded. The waitress nodded and left. “So Grimmjow how’s that kid of yours doing?” Grimmjow groans out. “I’m so sick of it. In one ear she is yelling her fucking head off about me not seeing the kid and the next when I do get him she starts screaming about how I never spend time with him and a bunch of shit. I can’t bring the kid to work with me. So I gotta pay the babysitter to watch him. I told her a million times that I can only take him on certain days.” Grimmjow rubs his face. “It doesn’t help that Aizen is working us around the clock like we don’t have better things to do. Now she’s threating to take full custody of him. I’m already paying child support. What more does she want from me!?” Yammy chuckled. “I never took her to be the petty type. She looks like she can take care of herself and the kid.” Grimmjow shrugs. “That’s what I thought to…”

Nnoitra gave a dry laugh. “I’ve been telling you that for years. Ever since you got together with her. I knew she’d try to dump the kid on you while she lived her life. No one but me has seen the true side of that bitch. If I were you I’d beat her to the courts first. You got some vacation times saved up right? File for full custody of the brat.” “Say what? I don’t want full custody. I can’t take care of him all on my own.” Grimmjow says. Nnoitra rolled his eyes. “Then find a woman who can. Easy as pie. You’re like an eye candy to some of these gold diggers. You tell them as long as they kept your kid happy you’ll buy them anything you want. Simple. It’s not like your broke.” Grimmjow sighed and then looked over at Ulquiorra. “How’s your love life. Still a virgin?” Ulquiorra didn’t answer. “I’ll take that as a yes…” Grimmjow says. “Man…can life get any worse then what it is now.”

At the grocery store Oichi was humming slightly to herself. Since Renji was off enjoying some guy time she thought it would be nice to have some girl time of her own. She stopped at the wine aisle and picked up a bottle. “It’s been a while since we just hung out ha-ha.” She brought two bottles, a few snacks and headed to the counter to check out. “Evening Oichi.” The cashier says. “Evening. I’d like to get these please.” The cashier smiles. “Having a girl’s night?” Oichi nodded. “Yeah, Since the guys are out I figured the chicka’s need a day to themselves you know. The cashier laughs as he rings her items up. “I hear that. I heard about the café expanded.” Oichi nodded. “Yeah, a newer addition bigger than ever.” “Yeah I heard the two co owners are trying to call a truce and that little café is a starter for them. I just hope they don’t cause trouble for you and the others you know. That part of town can get really bad.” Oichi nodded. “Yeah, but don’t worry. Me and the others will be just fine.” The cashier smiled and nodded. “Alright then, your total will be 35.60.” Oichi smiled and digs in her bag. She pulls out her batman wallet and goes for her credit card.

“Haha, You and your Batman fetish.” Oichi blushed. “S-Shut up. There is nothing wrong with loving Batman.” The Cashier chuckled and swiped her card. “Being a 24 year old young lady like yourself it raises the question.” Oichi pouted making him laugh. He then frowns. He swipes it again. “Um Oichi…sorry to say but your card has been decline.” Oichi’s eyes widen a bit. “Decline? That’s hard to believe we just got paid yesterday. I haven’t even had time to put half my money in my savings. Can you try again?” “I did. I swiped twice but…it declined.” Oichi frowned and sighed opening her wallet out. She pulled out two twenties. “Here.” “Sorry.” Oichi smiled. “It’s okay. I mean its not your fault or anything.” The cashier smiles and gives her back her change. They waved bye at each other than Oichi left. The bags were dropped down to her elbow as she went to her phone to check her card. “I should have money on my card. Maybe their machine is broken.”

Oichi pulled up her account and stopped walking. “No way…” She looked at her account in shock. It was telling her she had a negative 750 dollars in her checking account. “No way…No way…what the hell!??” She says. “How…who…” She opened up the files to see someone had brought something worth her entire paycheck and more. “…..” Oichi sighs and quickly heads homes. “I’ll have to call the bank and see what is going on. If the purchase was over the amount of my card then it shouldn’t have gone through and the main issue is who the heck hacked my card!”

Oichi walked a bit more before she started entering the house section of the city. The walk was about ten to fifteen minutes depending on her own walking speed. She and Renji were renting out a small house until they could find the perfect one for them. She reached their house. It was a white and gray two-story house with a nice garden of flowers in front, that Oichi herself planted. It had three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a garage for two. Why they needed a garage she didn’t know. Neither of them own a car since work was walkable and Renji carpooled for now. She walked up the stairs pulling her keys out. Unlocked the door and walked in, slamming the door shut behind her.

She walked into the kitchen and sat her things down. She then headed into the living room, grabbed her laptop and went to her bank account. She dialed the number, placing it on speaker. It rung twice before someone picked up. “Thank you for choosing Kara Bank. My name is Jazmine, how may I help you today.” “Yes, My name is Oichi Yamamoto and I’m calling to report this 750 dollar credit on my account.” “Okay Ms. Yamamoto let me just open up your account right quick.” Oichi tapped her foot waiting. “Ah, yes it seems like a purchase was made earlier at Marco’s Cabana.” Oichi frowned. “What is that…look I didn’t buy anything from that place. I think my card has been hacked or something.” “Okay Ms. Yamamoto looking in your recent purchase it seems like someone has been shopping there since last month.” “Say what!?” “I can delete this off your account if you wish and deactivate your card, though I’m afraid we cannot retrieve the money that was taken. We can however send you a new card with more security to protect your card better. Will that work for you?”

Oichi sat back and rubbed the space between her eyes. “Just great…” She mumbled. It’s not like she had a lot of money saved up since working at a café isn’t much but now she had to take care of 750-dollar fee. “Alright. Please do what you have to do and send me a new card please.” “Okay your card will be there in 3 to 4 business days.” “Thank you.” “No problem Ms. Yamamoto. Please have a great day and thank you for being a valuable customer.” Oichi hangs up and sighs. She picks up her phone and called Renji.

The phone rings four times before he picked up. “Oh, hey babe, uh, what’s up?” “Renji? Do you know what Marco’s Cabana is?” There was a slight pause. “No. Why?” He finally says. “I was trying to buy the groceries and my card declined. When I checked it, there was a 750-dollar fee in my checking’s. I Called the bank and someone has been using my card to go to whatever place it is. I was wondering if you have even heard of it.” There was another pause. “I see…look um. I’m a bit busy with the guys so when I come home tonight we can figure this out together.” Oichi frowned and nodded. “Alright. Sorry for bothering you.” “Ah no…you’re not bothering me. It’s just that maybe the guys will know what it is. If they do I’ll go check it out and tell you what I find alright? I’ll help you cover the fee and everything so don’t worry okay?” Oichi smiled. “Alright. Have fun Renji. I love you.” “Yeah. Love you to. Bye.” Renji says hanging the phone up.

Getting up and heading to the kitchen, Oichi dialed her friends number and placed them on a four-way chat. Orihime picked up first. She looked like she was getting out of the shower. She had a wet towel over her orange hair. “Oichi! Hi there!” Oichi smiled at Orihime. She was always happy and cheerful. “Hey Orihime. You home already?” She nodded. “Yup, got off about an hour ago.” The box below her appeared and Nel appeared pissed off. “I don’t care what he says!!! He is taking his son this weekend withier he likes it or not!!” She yelled in her other phone. Orihime and Oichi had their ears covered. “I see your as…hyper…as ever.” Nel huffed out. “That no good jerk is trying to get out of watching his son this weekend. I swear men are all the same.” Oichi smiled. “Renji isn’t.” Nel smiled at her. “Oh sure, you get a golden boy and I get a jack ass who could care less that we have a child together.” The third block was still loading. “Is Rukia busy?” Oichi asked opened the bottle of wine. “Ho-Ho what do you got there little Oichi? A nice bottle of wine? Isn’t it too early to be drinking?” Oichi rolled her eyes. “Its almost five and I really need one.” She says reaching up to grab a wine glass. “I was calling you guys to come have a drink with me. Renji is out with the guys and I got two bottles that need to be empty along with some snacks.” Nel nodded. “I’m down if you don’t mind me bring my little Grayson over?” Oichi nodded. “Sure, bring him. You in Orihime?” She nodded. “Yes, but I have work tomorrow so I’d like to avoid drinking.” Oichi looked at the blank screen. “I guess Rukia has better things to…” It picked up with a tired looking Rukia. Nel laughed. “Looks like someone had a good time last night.”

Oichi smirked. “So I take it your little date with Ichigo went well again?” Rukia smiled slightly. “Yeah…you can say that.” Nel and Oichi giggled. “He wore you out so bad you didn’t wake up til now?” Oichi asked. Rukia blushed. “W-Well…” They heard a door slam. Nel eyes widen. “Oh my gosh! Is he still there? Like right now!!??” Rukia quickly sat up. “No! He uh…left a few seconds ago really. Said he had to take care of something.” She says looking away from the screen.” Nel chuckled. “Aw, I really wanted to see his face but, get your tail up and come tell us about it. I want to know every detail.” She says. Rukia yawned and nodded. “Alright. I’m down.” Oichi smiled and looked at Orihime. She looked a bit confused. “Orihime are you okay?” Orihime blinks and smiles. “Oh yes! I’m fine.” Oichi raised her eyebrow. “Well I’ll see you in a bit!” Orihime says getting off, along with Nel and Rukia.

Back across the street in the section of Hueco Mundo Aizen was in his personal building. It was tall and it oversees all the other building. “Mr. Aizen…” Aizen turned around, slicking his hair back. He saw his co-partner Gin. “What is it Gin?” Gin walked up to him and looked out into the view. “Lovely view, isn’t it?” Aizen looked out into Karakura city. “Yes, a sad city that is divided into two…” Gin chuckled. “Not for long, right? The deal with Genryusai is in effect, now right? A building of you twos agreement is that café that borders right in the middle of Las Noches and the Seireitei…oh well they just like to be called part of Karakura city now…” Aizen chuckled. “The deal between us was that we will share the café on each other’s borders. Have workers from both sides working to see if they can co-exist then we will see what happens after that. Simple no?” Aizen turned around and went to his desk. Gin smirks. “That can’t be all you plan for?” Aizen smiles. “Is the meeting ready?” Gin chuckles. “Dodging the question, I see. Yes, everyone is waiting for you.” Aizen gets up. “Then let’s not keep them waiting.”

A few floors down Grimmjow and the others were sitting in a meeting room. “For Gosh sake…can’t he be on time for his own meetings!?” Grimmjow says groaning out. “Calm yourself Grimmjow…” Grimmjow looked to see Harribel with her arms crossed. Her blonde hair was over her right eye. She brushed it back behind her ear. “If Sir Aizen said he’ll be here then he will be here.” Grimmjow narrowed his eyes. “Sir Aizen??…ha…how much ass kissing are you doing?” Harribel narrowed her eyes back at him. “If anyone should be kissing ass it should be you. With all the work you think you do.” “What was that bitch?? You want to go?” Grimmjow says getting up. At the edge of the table Starrk sighs. He was trying to sleep through this meeting. “Can you two shut up Already. At this point everyone here at this table is a kiss ass don’t you think? As long as we get paid…that’s all that matters. Such a pain you all are.” They all looked at him.

“My, My…talking about who’s bottom to kiss is something my top division leaders shouldn’t be talking about. How amusing.” They all looked to see Aizen and Gin walking into the meeting room. Grimmjow snitched his teeth as Aizen took a seat. “Good evening everyone. Would you like a cup of tea?” No one said anything. “No? Alright then. I’m sorry to drag you out of your busy schedule but I wanted everyone to know about the truce with Karakura city. I want each of you to visit our new café every now and then. Report to me on how it is doing. You each will have jobs to do for this little project. I want this to be a success so please put all of your heart in strength into this.” Grimmjow and Nnoitra rolled their eyes in annoyance. “I will now give you a job that I would like you to personally work. Ulquiorra, you will be in charge of looking over it financially. Nnoitra you and Yammy will be making sure no one causes issues with our workers.” Nnoitra frowned. “So guard duty?? Ha why not make Grimmjow do that shit? He’s better at it anyways?” Grimmjow shook a glare at him. Aizen chuckled. “No, I have a much different job for our Grimmjow here and I will need him to stay after the meeting.” Grimmjow sighed as Aizen went on about who was doing what job.

After the meeting was over Grimmjow was still sitting down as everyone left. Aizen had his eyes closed as everyone walked out. Grimmjow had his hands in his pockets waiting. Once everyone was gone Gin walked up and placed a file in front of Grimmjow. “Mr. JaggerJack. We need your skills once more.” Grimmjow looked at the folder. “We need this before the next month in July. You can bring them in one by one, or all together, it’s your choice as long as we get it. Do you think you can handle it?” Grimmjow took the folder. “You’re asking me like I got a choice…” He says getting up and leaving. As he left a smile came to Aizen’s face.

Grimmjow looked through the folder as he walked. In his division, 6th division, he was in charge of transportation and information. Mainly, handling the dirty work for the company. He smuggled in things from other places, made sure they were useable and then make it to where it became the companies own product. It was more like a side job really to have extra money in his pocket. He didn’t mind it as long as he wasn’t screwed over. Grimmjow sighed. “The things I do for this company and yet, I still get treated like a fucking errand boy…”  

Oichi and the girls were laughing as they shared some stories together. Nel sipped on her third glass of wine. “Seriously Oichi. I really should have you as a babysitter!” Oichi smiles. Nel’s son, Grayson, was sitting on her lap cuddled up to her, slowly falling asleep. He was about 7 months. He had teal eyes and short blue hair. He had taken a strong likening to Oichi and wouldn’t miss the chance to be up under her. Oichi rubbed his back as she to sips her third cup of wine. “So, do you plan on having children of your own?” Orihime asked. Oichi blushed a bit. “Maybe someday but, we got to get a lot done. We still have to figure out the wedding and we are thinking about settling down in this house and so forth. I think having a child now would put things on hold.” Nel nodded. “I agree! Don’t have any kids! They are a buddle of joy but they place everything on hold specially when they have a dead-beat dad!” Nel says pouring a fourth cup.

Rukia shook her head. “I think your drinking too much.” Nel smiles. “Oh please, I can drink a lot more than this. I need about four more bottles of wine to even get buzzed. So tell us about the date and the night. Don’t leave out any details.” Rukia blushed. “W-Well…he took me out to eat and to the movies. It was a bit awkward at first since he tried to make this night special for some reason.” Rukia smiled softly. “I told him that every day I was with him it was special to me.” “Awwww!” The girls say making Rukia blush. “Oh, shut up…anyways we went back to my place and…kinda just ended the night there.” Nel chuckled. “Was he good?” Rukia nodded and rubbed her neck were some fresh hicky marks were. “Yeah, he…how do you say it…Rocked my world?” Nel and Oichi laughed. “That’s putting it mild.” Orihime was looking down at her soda can. Rukia looked over to her and sighed. “Orihime. I’m sorry.” Orihime looked at her in surprise. “Huh!?” “Look I know you had feeling for Ichigo. I shouldn’t be talking about this without considering your feelings. I’m sorry.” Orihime smiled. “No, No it’s okay it’s just…well…” “What is it?” Nel asked. “It’s nothing. Forget it.” Oichi frowned. “You know we can’t, now that you look like something is bothering you.”

Orihime waved it off. “I don’t want to cause any drama or anything. Let’s talk about something else.” Rukia also frowned. “Drama? Did something happen? You know you can tell us anything.” Nel sat back. “Spill it Orihime. Come on. We aren’t letting this go. Do someone try to man handle you!?” Orihime looked at them and then sighed. “Okay…its just…Ichigo said nothing special happened between you to.” Rukia’s eyes widen. “Excuse me?” Orihime looked down. “I’m sorry…I just wanted to see how the date went. I called you but you weren’t picking up so I called Ichigo. He said that you guys did the normal thing and went out to eat and dinner…he said that he dropped you off at your house and wanted to come in but you brushed it off…” Nel and Oichi looked at Rukia who was red in the face.

She stood up. “You had no right to call him!!” She yelled. Grayson jumped at her loud voice. He started to tear up getting fussy. Oichi sighed and placed her glass down. She places Grayson over her shoulder bouncing him a bit. Orihime kept her head down. “I’m really sorry Rukia but it’s the truth. I just wanted to know if everything went okay. He sounded upset over the phone and I just asked what was wrong and he told me that.” Rukia gripped her fist and grabbed her pocketbook. She stormed away pulling her phone out. She walked outside slamming the door behind her. Grayson sniffed as Oichi bounced him back to sleep.

Orihime had sadness in her eyes. “I’m a horrible friend…” Nel reached over and pats her head. “It’s okay Orihime. It’s our fault to. We shouldn’t have dug so deep. I thought it was something concerning you.” Oichi nodded. “Yes, it’s fine but it begs the question…if she didn’t sleep with Ichigo who did she sleep with…We all saw the fresh hicky marks and Ichigo isn’t the sort of guy that would lie you know.” Nel nodded. They heard a car start up and speed away. “Looks like she’s gone…” Orihime stood up. “I should get going to…I need to apologize to her and Ichigo. I don’t want it to seem like I’m trying to break them up.” Nel stood up to. “We know that and Ichigo knows that. Rukia was embarrassed that she got caught in a lie that’s all.” Oichi frowned. “The last thing I want to have is drama between us. Let’s just drop this for now. I’m sure it will get settle soon enough.” They nodded at her. Oichi stood up and handed a sleeping Grayson to Nel. He started fussing in his sleep reaching out. Oichi smiled and rubbed his cheek settling him down. Nel smile. “You are so good with kids…I’m so making you babysit him.” Oichi smiles at her as she walked them to the door.

Later, around one a.m Oichi was sleeping when she was woken by the doorbell. She yawned getting up. She was wearing a light red lace night gown. She put on her house coat and patted her hair down. She always had horrible bed head. She walked downstairs. The doorbell rings again. “Who is it!?” Oichi yelled a bit annoyed. She looked though the peek hole and saw Renji’s drunk face. “Renji…” She opened the door. Renji was chuckling with a red face. His friends Shuhei and Kira were supporting him. Their faces were a bit red as well. “H-Hey Oichi. We brought Renji home.” Oichi smiled. “Thank you two so much.” She walked to them and grabbed Renji’s arm from Kira. She pulled him inside the house. “Are you two okay to drive? If not you can use the spare rooms down here.” Shuhei smiled at her sweetly making her blush a bit. She won’t deny that Shuhei was very handsome, especially when he smiled so sweetly like that. “Thanks, Oichi, but we are fine. Momo is driving us.” Oichi nodded.

Renji burps a bit and leans on Oichi more. “Mmm…you’re so soft and warm babe.” He wrapped his arm around her waist. “Let’s have fun tonight huh?” “Renji it’s one in the morning I think you had enough fu…ah!” Renji grabbed her left breast. “Mmm your boobs are getting bigger. I want to eat them up.” Oichi’s face went red as Renji licked her neck. Shuhei and Kira’s face also went red as they watched Renji’s hand run up Oichi’s thigh, showing a bit of her lace nightgown. “R-Renji stop…!” Oichi says trying to move away from him. Renji chuckled and bite her ear. Oichi let out a soft moan. Renji licked and nipped on her ear. Shuhei held his nose hearing Oichi’s cute moans. “M-Maybe we should go…” Kira says pushing Shuhei back to the car. “I’m s-sorry!” Oichi says as she uses her foot to close the door. She took her hand and mushed Renji’s face. “Renji! At least let’s go to the bed room. You so embarrassing!”

Moments after their love making,Oichi was rubbing his head. She felt his body starting to relax. “Mmm…I love you…” He says. Oichi smiled. “Love you more.” He turns his head and kisses her cheeks. “Your boobs grew since last time.” Oichi looked at him. “Huh?” Renji kisses her neck. “Your softer then before to. Did you take a bath before I came home?” “Well…yeah but.” “You’re such a tease. You know I can’t resist you.” Oichi was a bit confused at this but she figured he was just drunk talking.

She sat up and pushed him over a bit. “Let’s get you to bed.” She helps him get under the blankets. “She then went to the bathroom. She grabbed a cup, that she always keeps in times of these, and fills it up with water. She then opens the machine cabinet and looks for her headache tension pills. Walking back out she placed them on Renji’s side of the bed. Renji was watching her with hazy eyes. “Get in bed…” He mumbled out. Oichi rolled her eyes. “Yeah, yeah I’m coming.” She looks down and frowns as her ripped gown. She takes it off and slips into bed with him and was pulled into a cuddle. “It sucks we have to hid it.” He mumbles. Oichi frowns. “Hide what?” “The fact that I want you.” “What are you talking about. You already have me.” Renji chuckles as he falls asleep. Oichi shakes her head as she cuddles up to him. “No more drinking for now…” She says. Renji breathes softly as he mumbles something. “Love you…” “Yes, I love yo…” “Rukia…” Oichi’s eyes widen. ‘Wait…what!?’

Grimmjow was in his apartment smoking in the kitchen. He was overlooking the files. “Let’s see…the truck comes tomorrow night at 9pm near the east side of town. No one usually comes around that time so we can set up here.”  He circles a spot on a map he had placed on the table. “We can make the drop and have it placed in the ware house before transport. I’ll have to use a company truck and make sure the package is crated up. It won’t look suspicious if it looks like we are moving somethings. So, everything looks good.” He leans back and lets out smoke. The door to his room open and sexy woman walked out. She had blonde hair and brown eyes. She was wearing nothing but a pair of panties. She swings her hips as she walks to him. “Baby, when are you going back to bed?” Grimmjow watches as she comes to him. She sits on his lap and wrap her arms around his neck. “The bed is so lonely without you.” She takes the cigarette out his mouth and places it in her mouth. She breathes in the smoke and then blows it out. “You got me for the next two hours. I say you should use them wisely, you know.” Grimmjow sighs mentally as the woman rubs her lower half against him. He wasn’t reacting to it and it made her chuckle. “What’s wrong? Can’t get it up anymore? Did you run out of steam already?” Grimmjow rolled his eyes. “Guess you’re not as attractive as you look.” The woman frowned. “Say what? You weren’t saying that earlier!” Grimmjow shrugs. “It was good for that second…but I barely got off once while you got off three times. That is a major turn off. If you can’t keep up with me then don’t expect another round.” The girl frowned and got off him. “Fuck you Grimmjow! I don’t have time for this. You’re going to come back to me anyways. Don’t take that sassy tone with me just because you can’t get it up. Fucking prick!” She walked into the room.

A few seconds later she came out dressed in a short dress and light blue jean jacket. She grabbed her purse and shoes off the table. “Call me when you get the stick out your ass.” She says leaving. Grimmjow leans back in his chair. It wasn’t like he couldn’t get it up. He was bored with her that’s all. If he was bored he couldn’t get it up period. It’s not like she was any good in bed either. He shook his head and got up and headed to bed.  

Couple of days later, Oichi was drinking coffee. Her mind was still in the gutters from the other night. It just wouldn’t leave her alone. Renji saying what he said. She frowned. ‘I love you Rukia?’ What was he talking about. She rubbed her chest. 'Renji…and Rukia?' She shook her head. "No, he must have been thinking about something while he said that. He wouldn't do that to me…Plus he was drinking to..." She looked down at her ring. "He wouldn't do that…would he?" She didn't really have the heart to ask Renji about what he said. So she kept telling herself that he was to drunk.

However, the more she thought about that she remembered what he had been saying. Like how her boobs had gotten bigger since last time. The had sex almost every night if they were dead tired. Then that line ‘It sucks that we have to hide it.’ Oichi bit her lip. ‘He couldn’t be.’

Renji walked down stairs in a suit. He was tying her hair up and walked in the kitchen. He notices Oichi in a trance looking down at her ring. He tits his head. “Babe? Babe!?” He called out. He walked over to her and placed his arms around her. “BABE!!!” Oichi jumped in his arms making him chuckle. Oichi looked up at him. “Morning Renji.” Renji smiles and kisses her forehead. “Morning. What are you thinking about?” “Huh?” “You never go in a trance unless you’re in deep thinking mood.” “Oh…it’s nothing…Nel wanted to know if I could baby sit sometimes.” Renji frowned. “Oh no…that’s a major no.” Oichi turned around in his arms. “Why?” “I don’t want to get in her baby mama drama. I don’t need you in the middle either. We got our own plans you know and besides.” He pulled her close. “If you want a baby we can always make one.” Oichi blushed and smiled at him. He leans down and kisses her. Oichi sighs into the kiss. Renji pulled back and licked his lips. Oichi’s face was flustered a bit. “Haha. Such an erotic look on your face.” He picked her up and placed her on the counter. “Renji? What are you doing?” Renji smirks. “You think I’m going to pass up on this. That cute erotic face is a calling card that you want me right?” Oichi blushed. “What??” “Let’s get in a quickie before work huh?” “Renji! Wait a second!” Renji kissed her. “To late Babe.”

The café Oichi worked for was under construction. It wouldn’t be ready for another couple of weeks or so. The café was called Sugar rush and it was a small café that sold sweets, drinks, and regular food. There was also a small spot for Karaoke. The Café was a bit worn down but it was fixed up every now and then by the workers who used their own money for repairs. The manager of the café was fired for being so bad at his job and now both owners were looking to see who the replacement would be.

A representative from each side was discussing about who would be the manager. From Aizen, Kaname and Starrk was sent. From Genryusai side, Jushiro and Shunsui was sent. They sat in the back office that had not been torn down just yet. They were going over each employee file both new and old. Starrk was napping in the chair.

“Mmm…I’d like for us to pick out a person that is highly noted by the other employee’s. I think we should go with who has been here the longest and what not. Or we can start new and pick a brand-new person with very good experience. What do you think?” Shunsui says. Kaname looked at him. “That is true but, if you think that way and we end up picking a new person that no one knows then it will cause the employee’s to be upset and dishearten. To have someone new come in and handle this kind of change would not be wise in my opinion.” Jushiro smiled as he read a file. “I think this person would be good. They have been here for a decent amount of time. They were the assistant manager for the last manager and they did a pretty good job. Everyone knows them and they know the employee’s.” He handed them the file. “Hmmm…yes I see no complaints from this person and they look very well known. I favor them.” Kaname nodded in agreement. “It would be the best choice for now let’s also place this one as the assistant manager. They also have a very good standard. I don’t think the employee’s here will complain and everything will have a nice equal starting.” The men agreed upon this.

The door to the office opened and Harribel walked in with Unohana. “Hello there.” Unohana says smiling. “Why hello Ms. Unohana.” Jushiro says. Unohana smiled. “Hello. I see you just finished picking who will run this new establishment.” “Yes, are you finished with the plans for the building?” Harribel walked up with a blueprint. “Yes, we decided that it will have a seating capacity of 147 seats, it will offer five choices of dining seating styles from the sushi bar, an entertainment room, a private dining rooms, public dining area to a cozy lounge dining area and the outside. For the drinks, the restaurant will feature a private bar surrounded floor to ceiling glass windows that offers a breathtaking view of that beautifully landscaped garden. The bar will serve more than 20 types of each drinks from Sake to wine to beer and so forth. However, the bar will not be open until after 12pm. Don’t want to have early drunks.”

“Wow you two sure placed a lot of thought into this.” Shunsui says but from this blueprint it looks like it going to be bigger to hold 147 seats.” Unohana smiled. “That is correct. There will be the upstairs to be strongly consider. Upstairs has an exterior appearance in the shape of blocks piled up neatly. It is brilliant white filled with mysterious experience of exploration almost like a fairy tail. The exterior appearance with blocks wears in white which reveals its shape more vividly under the sunlight, and allows to be seen through window from outside. Just as Ms. Harribel says there will be a garden outside. We haven’t been able to figure out what style will look like just yet. We were hoping that the mangers you pick will give us some insight.”

Kaname nodded. “I see, so the downstairs area will be more like a restaurant while upstairs will be the café. Then that changes things. We may need to add another manger to take care of both the café and restaurant.” Jushiro sat back. “Yes, so our goal now is a general manger, maybe four shift mangers and then of course the employees.” Shunsui sighs. “Well let’s get to work. We still need to pick out the uniforms, make calls to the employees, set up the pay rates, all within a short few weeks.”

Oichi sighs. Despite Renji being against it she ended up babysitting Grayson. He wasn’t any trouble like Nel said he was going to be. She said that the usual babysitter had issues with him. From pulling down stuff around the house, fighting sleep, throwing fits and so on and so on. Grayson was a cute little angel while Oichi had him. He ate his food without throwing a fit, even though he got it all over him. He watched some cartoons. He seems to like young justice and his favorite hero was blue beetle. Maybe because his suit was blue but, his eyes always sparkled when he came to the screen. Now, he was laying on her napping away. Oichi was stuck at home for a few weeks until the café was finished. Having nothing else to do she didn’t mind babysitting Grayson. Oichi rubbed his back as he sleeps. “Nel said you look just like you dad but, I’ve never seen a man with blue hair like yours.” Grayson wiggles in his sleep, making her giggle. “To cute. I wonder when me and Renji will have a baby. Who would it look like. What personality would it take after? I wonder if I’ll be a good mom. They said I’m good with kids but it may not matter to my own child.”

Just then the doorbell rings out. “Mmm…wonder who could be coming to see me at this time.” She placed Grayson down on his play mat and went to the door. She opened it to see Ichigo standing there. “Ichigo?” Ichigo smiled softly. “Hey, Oichi…mind if I come in?” Oichi nodded. “Sure.” Ichigo walked in and headed to the living room. Oichi looked out the door and looked around. She then heard a clicking sound. She frowned and turned her head. She didn’t see anyone. “Maybe I’m just hearing things.” She closed the door and walked to the living room where she saw Grayson sitting up looking at Ichigo. Ichigo was frowning at him. “Ichigo stop frowning at him. You’re going to make him fussy.” Grayson turned to Oichi’s voice and smiled. He reached out for her. “Haai!!” Turning over, he started to crawl to her slowly. “Aw, so cute.” She walked to him and picked him up.

“Oichi you don’t need to get involved with Nel and her baby daddy issues.” Oichi rolled her eyes and sat down. “Why does everyone keep saying that? I’m just watching Grayson while she’s working. That’s it.” Ichigo shook his head. “I just don’t want her to drag you down.” Oichi sighs. “Whatever, anyways why are you here? Aren’t you needed at the fitness center?” Ichigo leans back. “No, I took the day off.” He turned to Oichi. “I need some advice.” “From me?” Ichigo chuckled. “Well yeah, you are the only one out of all of us that will be getting married soon.” Oichi rubbed her cheek. “I guess.” “I really like Rukia but, it looks like her heart is already taken by someone else.” Oichi frowned. “I see.” “What should I do? I don’t want her to see anyone but me but, the farthest I get with her is holding hands and barely that. It’s like she’s embarrassed to be with me now. Should I just give up and just accept defeat?” Oichi groans out mentally. “Ichi…I’m so not the type to give advice but, I think you need to put your foot down. You need to ask Rukia if she truly wants to be with you and if she doesn’t then yeah, it’s time to move on. The last thing you need is to be chasing someone who’s heart is already taken…” She blinks twice and then turns to him. “Why do you think her heart is taken already?”

Ichigo frowned. “I saw the freaking hicky’s on her neck. Not to mention she’s always on the phone and then she’s been acting weird.” “How weird?” “Well…she looked green in the face a bit like she was sick. I told her we should go to the doctor but she panics and said it was just something she ate. Today, while I walked her to work she looked both happy and sad and when I asked what was up she told me to keep out of her business…” Oichi looks at Ichigo. He had sadness in his eyes. It wasn’t hard to see how much he cared for Rukia. She reached over to him and rubbed his back. “Look, I don’t want to see you hurt. I think…maybe you need to ask Rukia how she feels about you and if there is nothing there then it’s time to move on.” Ichigo sighs. “I figured…” He rubs his hand through his hair. “I should have known someone was going to get to her before me. I waited to damn long.” He grits his teeth and grips his hair.

Oichi didn’t like to see her friend in pain. “Oh Ichi…I’m am sure that there is a girl out there just for you. I’m sure right now she’s thinking the same as you. Thinking she’ll never find the right one. I know it’s going to hurt if you don’t get the answer you are looking for but trust me, one day you’re going to find someone so special to you. She may not be perfect but she will be perfect only for you in your eyes and that love that is swelling up in your heart will burst with so much emotion that it will be hard to contain.” Ichigo look at her and smiled. “Is that how you feel about Renji?” Oichi nodded. “Yes, I do. Sometimes it scares me. I love him so much. He has done such wonderful things for me.” She looks at her ring. “He’s given up a lot just for me. He has been faithful to me and has made me the happiest girl in the world. He may have his faults and weaknesses but I’ll be there to help him whenever he needs me just like I know he will do the same for me.” Ichigo chuckled. “I really do envy him sometimes. Having such a person like you as his fiancé now.” Oichi chuckles as she felt Grayson patting her. She looks down at him. “Ahhh!!” He says. “Are you hungry?” “Mmmm…!!” Grayson says making Oichi and Ichigo laugh. “To cute!” She snuggles Grayson making him squeal in giggles. Ichigo smiled at her. ‘Yea…to cute…’

At Renji’s office, he was typing his report up. A knock was heard at his door. “It’s open!” He yelled. The door opened and Rukia walked in. She looked a bit sick. Renji saw her and frowned. He got up and quickly went to her. “Rukia? What’s wrong?” He reached up to grab her but she pushed his hand away. “It’s nothing well…actually we need to talk.” She closed the door and walked to the couch that was in Renji’s office. She sat down and sighed. Renji walked over and sat beside her. “So what’s up?” Rukia looked at him. “Renji I’m going to let Ichigo go.” Renji frowned. “What?? Why!?” Rukia frowned back. “You know why! I can’t keep this game up anymore Renji. It’s tiresome and pointless. I just want this all to end.” Renji crossed his arms. “Can’t you date him for a few more weeks? I’m almost done with my end.” Rukia shook her head. “No, Renji you don’t understand. I can’t be with Ichigo anymore. It doesn’t help that you leave marks all over my body when I ask you not to.” Renji smirks and moves closer to her. “You love it when I mark you though so what’s the deal?” He leans down and kisses her cheek. Rukia sighs and pushes him away. “I can’t do this. I’m sorry Renji and you should do the same. How long do you think we can do this without Oichi noticing??” Renji rolled his eyes and sat back. “Don’t worry. Oichi is clueless. She doesn’t know about our relationship and she never will until it’s to late. Just put up with Ichigo for another week or so. Once I have the money that I wasted from buying that ring, I can buy the house out in my name and then we can be together.”

Rukia frowned and got up. “No! I said I’m not doing it and you need to end things with Oichi! If we are going to be together then you need to cut loose ends. I won’t have you drag both Ichigo and Oichi down any longer!” She starts to tear up a bit. Renji got up. “What’s with you all of a sudden.” He grabbed her arms and pulled her to him, hugging her. “Tell me what’s wrong Rukia?” Rukia looked up at him. “Renji…I’m…I’m pregnant.” Renji’s eyes widen. “What?” Rukia looked down and nodded. “Yes…I found out a week ago. Six weeks…that’s why I can’t keep doing this with Ichigo.” Rukia was suddenly pulled into a hug. “I understand. You should have said that earlier.” “You’re not mad?” Renji chuckled. “Why would I be mad? You’re going to have my kid. I’ll end things with Oichi…it won’t be pretty and it’s going to be hard but I’ll take care of everything okay.”

Rukia backed up and looked at him. “Renji. I feel guilty with what we did. three years behind Oichi’s back?” Renji sighs. “I know but since I got her that ring that was really meant for you, I needed to make sure I had enough money. Even if that café was a piece of crap Oichi made some good money in paychecks and tips because she worked so much. Add her money with mine with a good mood. Plus, I’ll be buying the house in our name to.” Rukia’s guilty look didn’t change. “Renji…” Renji smiles and pushes her face up to his. “It’s okay Rukia. I’ll take care of everything.” He leans down and kisses her. Rukia sighs into the kiss and kisses him back. Renji pulls back for a second. “I love you Rukia.” Rukia smiles. “I love you to Renji.” They shared a kiss again. As they kiss became passionate Renji pulls Rukia to the couch and makes her get on top of him. She grinds her hips against him making him moan slightly. He rubs her butt, while pushing her hips against his. Clothes started to come off and light moans filled the room. At the door, they failed to see a pair of eyes watching them in shock.

Chapter 16

Ichigo was sitting in the living room with the other soul reapers. The words from Jess. ‘I’m a witch.’ Kept replaying to him again and again. ‘It would explain why her spiritual energy is a bit out there…’ He says to himself. “Ichigo.” ‘Now the question where did she come from.’ “Ichigo!” ‘Does Jenna know what she is?’ “ICHIGO!!!” Ichigo suddenly felted a slap to the back of the head. “Ow! What the hell!!” He rubbed his head and looked up to see a fuming Rukia. “I’ve been talking to you for a while now! Get your head out of the gutters!!!” Renji smacked him in the back of the head again. “So it was you…” Ichigo says as his eyes twitch. “This is no time for you to space out. We couldn’t get here because of the swam of hollows so we have no clue what’s going on. We need information Ichigo…” Renji says in a serious tone making Ichigo look at him in surprise “Wow…it’s weird to see you so serious.” An angry mark appeared on his head. “The last month is approaching and we had less answers to the questions we need answer. I don’t want to lose Jenna either you know.” Toshiro sighed. “Okay so tell us what happened.” Ichigo nodded and recapped everything that happened.
“Grimmjow was here and he had Jenna by her throat. He said he had remembered what his mission was, which I am guessing, had to be to get rid of Ulquiorra, Jenna, and the baby.” Ichigo says. Toshiro frowned. “Why does he want to kill Ulquiorra? Aren’t they on the same side?” “When Ulquiorra came, he stopped Grimmjow.” They looked at him. “What do you mean?” Renji asked. “I mean he saved Jenna.” Ichigo says. “Grimmjow started going off about how Ulquiorra should have forgot about his past. Something about betraying them for a human and how his ways have alerted all of us leaving himself to clean up the mess.” “Then that means Grimmjow really was working for Aizen. Something happened to make him regain his memories. Maybe being in the presence of Ulquiorra jolted them somehow.” Toshiro says.
“So Grimmjow came to kill them. Failed. Now he left to report to Aizen maybe?” Renji says. “We don’t know yet. I sent the others out to find him and if possible to kept him alive.
“Go on. What happened next?” Orihime said in a worried tone. She wanted to go up to Jenna but Ichigo stopped her since Jess was up their doing whatever it is she do. “Well during that time Jenna must have remembered something about Ulquiorra. Something that deep down in her memories. It made her ask him for the truth.” Ichigo bends over and crosses his fingers. “Ichigo?” Orihime says. “The good news is that Jenna isn’t going to die…” They looked shocked at that. “Wait how do you know?” Renji asked. “Ulquiorra said so.” “So you’re just going to take his word for it!?” Renji asked angrily. Ichigo turn around and looked at him. “What choice do I have!!! The moment I was going to fight him he said that if I killed him then Jenna will die as well!! Do you think I want to believe that!?” Ichigo yelled out in anger. “In some since he kept tell me that I needed to protect him and Jenna…” Toshiro’s eyes narrowed. ‘Could it be…’ Uryu pushed his glasses up. “Okay so for now we believe Ulquiorra for now. When you say good news, bad news is always sure to be behind.” Ichigo looked at him and sighed. “Jenna found out who killed her parents.” Orihime gasp. “It was Ulquiorra…” Renji grabbed him by the shirt. “…and you want to trust this bastard!!! The same one who killed her parents!!??” He yelled. Ichigo looked down and pulled away from Renji. “Would you shut up…you think I’m not just as pissed off!! Ulquiorra is making Jenna go through all this pain because he doesn’t want to be forgotten by her anymore! He is doing everything in his power just so she doesn’t erase her again!! How the hell do you think I fell when I can’t protect her when she’s in danger! She’s upstairs now suffering because all her memories came back all at once!!!!”
Renji was taken back by the sudden outburst. “Wait…Jenna got her memories back?” Toshiro asked. “What do you mean by forget and erase him…?” Rukia asked. The living room became tense as Ichigo tried to calm his anger down. Suddenly the door started to open by itself. Everyone looked toward it. Renji, Rukia, and Toshiro grabbed their swords ready to attack. They waited until they heard a small meow. They blinked and looked down to see a black cat with a pentagram necklace around its neck, strolling in. “W-What…” They watched as she sat down wiggly her tail. “Is that… Yoruichi? Orihime says blinking. They then hear someone walking down the stairs. They turned to see Jess walking down. Renji eyes scanned her up and down. “Ichigo…who’s that woman?” Ichigo sighed. “That’s Jess…Jenna’s friend.” Jess ignored them for the moment. “I knew you would follow me here, never can stay away from me, can you?” The cat made a chuffed noise. Jess smiled and walked back upstairs. “Come Sabrina.” The cat, Sabrina, raced up the stairs after her leaving everyone in a bit of a baffle.    
They blinked and looked at Ichigo. “Don’t ask…it’s already complicated enough…” He sat back down. Thanks to Jess and her cat the tense air had calmed down a bit. Ichigo took a breath. He sat back. “So…yes, Jenna got her memories back…all of them. She was in so much pain I didn’t know what to do…if it wasn’t for Jess she may have not survived all her memories flooding in her head…” There was a brief silence between them. Toshiro was rubbing his chin. ‘That woman…where do I know her from…’ He looked towards the stairs.
Up in Jenna’s room Jess was looking over her. She had finished cleaning her up. She tossed the blood stain clothes into the wash and dressed her in one of her night gowns. She wanted to smack Ichigo once more for putting her in danger but she knew it wasn’t his fought. On her way to the house she had felt that same aura, the one that was surrounding the house and Jenna. She thought it would have been stronger but it felt weak like it was slowly dying…just like that tree in the park. She narrowed her eyes. “Hmmm…”
Looking down at Jenna, she was sleeping calmly but who knows how her mind was holding up. Sabrina was sitting in Jess’s lap purring softy. Jess sighed. “Well, I suppose it would be rude to not introduce myself to those other people. Plus, I do need answers on what happened. The barrier that was over the house also needs to be prepared.” She then eyed Jenna’s belly. Smiling gently, she reached out. “It couldn’t hurt to peak.” She rubbed Jenna’s belly and chanted softly to herself. A green light shined around her hand. She closed her eyes and waited. She gasps slightly and moves her hand away. “That’s…strangle…another question added to the list…” Jess frowned looking at Jenna. She placed Sabrina on the bed next to Jenna. “Watch Jenna while I’m talking okay?” She rubbed Sabrina on the back before she went downstairs.
It was still silent when she walked into the living room. Ichigo was lost in through until he felt her sit next to him. Ichigo look to her. “How is she?” “She’s sleeping but I don’t want you rushing up there just yet. She needs some rest.” Ichigo frowned at her but sighed. Jess looked around the room and saw that everyone was looking at her. She smiled. “Hello, my name is Jessica Mikcloud but you can all call me Jess. I am a good friend of Jenna’s and I’ve come to offer my help in this questioning situation.” Renji frowned at her. “Who said we wanted any help from you!? How are you going to help us when we know nothing about you!” Ichigo sighed. “Renji…don’t…” Jess frowned at Renji. “I’m just saying! How can we just a woman who comes out of nowhere!” Rukia crossed her arms. “I somewhat agree with Renji but at the same time…she already shows remarkable power…” Renji looked to Rukia. “Oh yeah? How so?” Rukia sighed. “You idiot…we are all in our natural forms and she can see us clearly…what does that tell you?”
Renji reached for his sword. “That she could be an enemy and that we should take her into questioning! On your feet woman!” Jess chuckled at this. “Oh? You wish to challenge me? I can assure you it will not end in your favor.” Renji grabbed the hilt of his sword as Jess stood up and casually walked to him. Ichigo groaned. Living here with Jess has taught him to watch what he says around her. One wrong move and he could be sent flying across the town.
Renji frowned at Jess. “Don’t make this any harder on yourself. I don’t take pleasure into beating woman…” Jess smirked as he got ready to charge her. “My, you are a very foolish one I see. It seems I have to put you in your place as well.” She took a step and quickly appeared in front of Renji making him and the others eyes widen. Ichigo shook his head. ‘Welp…rest is in peace Renji…’ Renji was caught off by this. ‘How did she move so fast!? She’s not a regular human!?’ In his thoughts, he failed even see what happened next. With a swift movement, Jess backhanded him into the wall. The hit sent Renji flying straight into the wall creating a body print. He fell to the floor twitching. Jess placed her hand on her hip ignoring the shocked looks. “I held back but if I were you I would stay down.” She turned around to sit back on the couch. Renji got up and coughed out. He could feel his cheek swelling slightly. “Just stay down Renji…” Ichigo says. Renji ignored Ichigo and started to charge Jenna. “I’ll show you not to underestimate me!!” Jess sighed. She then spotted a fly swatter hanging on the wall. The swatter shook slightly as it rose off the wall and flew towards her.
Orihime gasped as this. Ichigo blinked in confusion. ‘She did say she was a witch…’ Renji reached out to grab Jess but as soon as he did the fly swatter smacked him dead straight in the face sending him rolling backwards back into the wall. Jess turned around as the fly swatter hovered beside her. “Please be a good boy and stay down. I would hate to have to embarrass you anymore then I have to.” The hit was so hair that it left the wire print on Renji’s face. Rukia frowned at this as Jess took her seat. ‘Who is this woman….’ The fly swatter landed on the table just in case Renji got anymore foolish ideas.  
Jess cleared her throat and smiled. “So does anyone else has an issue about me helping out?” They all shook their heads rapidly. “Good so let’s talk but first I’m going to replace the barrier around the house. I don’t want any more surprise attacks while Jenna is resting.” Toshiro looked at her. “You…can make barriers?” Jess stood up. “I can do many things if so pleased.” Toshiro frowned. “Just who are you…” Jess was walking to the door. “All you need to know is that I am here to help my friend out of this.” Just as Jess reached the door she felt three strong auras’ coming close. She chuckled to herself as she felt a familiar one.
Suddenly, Kisuke, Yoruichi, and Byakuya appeared in the middle of the room. Ichigo sighed out. “Great another troublemaker is here.” Byakuya ignored him as he scanned the room. His eyes laid straight on Jess. Jess simply wiggled her fingers, giving him a slight finger wave. He turned his head away from her. Kisuke held up a fan. “Sorry for the intrusion but we got some troubling news to share. It seems like hollows are hovering about the town.” Ichigo and the others looked at him. “What!?” Kisuke waved his hand. “Don’t worry. The soul society is taking care of it.” He took out a pill out and hit the button. He tossed it back and a huge TV screen appeared, covering the patched-up hole that Ichigo had fixed. Ichigo stood up. “Why the hell did you bring that huge ass TV back! You better take it back with you!!” Kisuke laughed. “Don’t worry, I have it covered. The head captain wants a report about what happened but, before we can get to that…would you mind introduction your friend.” He looked over to Jess. “Hello, I’m Jessica Mikcloud.” Kisuke blinked. “Mikcloud? My…such a big shot we have here. May I ask what such a high standard person as yourself is doing here?” He narrowed his eyes slightly.
Ichigo looked at Jess. “High standard? Like…Rick!?” Jess smiled. “If you are trying to imply that I have something to do with whatever is going on then you are very mistaken. I am just here to help my friend get out of this situation. Something you all are failing to do. Now if you would excuse me I have something to do right quick. It won’t take long.” Jess says looking at the door.  
Jess placed her hand on the door and took a deep breath closing her eyes, right away they all sensed a powerful wave of energy coming her. Her hair started to glow neon red. Everyone was watching her carefully. Her eyes snapped open and her eyes were glowing green, the door and walls were rippling with a purple glow. Putting her hand down she turned and smiled "Barrier restored, everyone in the room can pass through the barrier." All eyes were still on her as she took her seat next to Ichigo. She turned to look at Renji who turned his head away from her. “Good boy!” She says laughing. Renji growled out but he dared not move from that spot.
Yoruichi laughed. “Not bad. The Mikcloud name isn’t just for show.” Jess smiled her way then glanced at Byakuya who had moved over on the opposite side of the room with his eyes closed. Rukia took a seat next to Toshiro. “Just who are you um…Jess…? How can you make a barrier? How did you make that fly swatter hover? What is your connection to Jenna?” Jess had her arms crossed as she leans back on the couch. “So many questions on the little things. For now, let’s just focus on Jenna? If you share your information with me then I shall share mine. That’s a fair trade don’t you think?” Kisuke closed his fan. “Deal. Let’s focus on the main situation. So, tell me everything and lets combine notes shall we.”
He turned the TV on and Jushiro, Shunsui, and head captain Yamamoto, appeared. Yamamoto looked around the room and his closed eyes laid on Jess. “Hmmm…a very interesting element for a Mikcloud to be here.” Jess looked at him. “You have heard of my family sir?” “Indeed…” Jushiro and Shunsui looked at Jess closely. “Those green eyes and red hair are a dead giveaway not to mention how cute you are. Even though the screen. Very cute…” Jess could feel her checks burning slightly as she turned away. Byakuya opened his eyes slightly looking at the screen. Jushiro laughed. “Forgive my friend he forgot a certain person is there.” The two men glanced at Byakuya who had closed his eyes again. Jess smiled slightly at him. Jushiro chuckled. “There is much I would like to discuss with about the history of your family but I am afraid that would have to wait.” Jess nodded. The head captain looked around. “Where is the girl?” “Her name is Jenna old man…” Ichigo says. “She’s upstairs resting right now.” “I see…well why don’t we get this started. I want to hear what has been going on so far and if the matter we had discussed is still on the table or not.” Ichigo frowned at him. Jess looked at Ichigo. ‘…what matter is he talking about?’
Once everything was said Jess was in deep thought. She was happy that Jenna would live past the due date but what troubled her was the link she had between this Ulquiorra person. If he died, then she would die. Does that mean if Jenna dies he would as well? Was their bond that strong? Then there was this Grimmjow fellow. Was he coming back for Jenna? If he went after her the best way to draw Ulquiorra out was to put her life in danger. Ichigo was thinking the same thing as her. “Grimmjow isn’t going to get reinforcements…he’s going to heal up and come after Jenna again. He’s not the type to retreat and call for backup.” Kisuke nodded. “True and the less Aizen knows the better. We already have to deal with the hollows swarming the town, Grimmjow being on the loose, and Ulquiorra as well…putting Aizen in the mix would make things more complicated.”  
Ichigo ruffled his head. “Ugh!! I hate this! Why does Jenna have to be in the middle of this!!” Orihime looked at Ichigo sadly and placed her hand on his. This made Jess watch her actions carefully. Jenna had told her that Orihime still had lingering feelings for Ichigo. She didn’t look like she would be the type of person to try to steal someone else’s boyfriend but Jess kept an eye on her just to make sure. Rukia was watching Jess. “So Jess…is there anything you want to share? We put everything on the table…so how about you?” She says narrowing her eyes. Jess looked at her and sighed. “Very well, A few hours ago I found where those visords were hiding.” Ichigo looked at her. “You found Shinji!! What happened!!??” “Calm yourself Ichigo. I will tell you if you let me. So I went there looking for answers and since they didn’t give me any I kicked their asses. Then before I could finish a certain broody person stopped me.” She glanced at Byakuya.
Rukia crossed her arms. “So basically, what you are saying is that you have nothing for us?” Jess frowned. “Please let me finish…on my way here I felt something strange. The aura that has been around this house and that had attached itself to Jenna…it was coming here. I thought since it has been giving you so much trouble it would be stronger but…” Kisuke looked at her. “…but…?” “This aura felt weak…like it was slowly dying…and maybe even a bit sad…” “Sad??” Jushiro says. Jess nodded. “Yes, that same aura is attached to Jenna so could that be the same Ulquiorra person?” The room was silent for the moment. Rukia was still looking at Jess. “This aura thing…how can we be sure that you aren’t lying? What are you really?” Jess shook her head. “Man, you just won’t let this go…do you truly wish to know what I am above saying my friend’s life?” Jess says. “We have confirmed that Jenna isn’t going to die.” “Your confirmation is based off this Ulquiorra person. What if he is lying to you? Are you going to put your trust into his word? He is the one who got her into this mess.” It felt like the room was getting a bit tensed. Ichigo sighed. “Jess…just tell them so we can move on. We are getting nowhere like this.” Jess sighs. "To the moon goddess, never gonna drop it are you? very well, to answer your so desire question... I'm a Witch."
Everyone looked at her. “A…A witch!!??” They all say in unison. Jess couldn’t help but chuckle at their reaction. “Yes, a witch.” Renji stood up. “A witch! Witches aren’t real!?” Jess looked his way and the fly swatter smacked him in the face. “Renji, how many more times is your face going to have to eat this fly swatter?” Renji rubbed his face. “You really expect us to believe such an idiotic lame ass story!?” Ichigo couldn’t really say anything. He also couldn’t really believe that Jess was a witch as well.
Jess frowned and sighed. “This is a waste of time but since you all desire some proof the so be it.” Jess stood up and walked up to Renji, who jumped back slightly. Jess shook her head. “Calm down I’m not gonna smack your face with the swatter…for now…” She lifted her hand as her body was covered in a purple light. Her eyes started to glow slightly as well. Everyone looked wide eyed as Renji’s body started to glow slightly purple as well. “What the hell is going on!?” Suddenly there was a bright light and Renji was dropped to the floor.
Jess smiled. “There. Should this be enough proof?” Renji sat up rubbing his head. “Proof??What proof!?” He looked to see everyone’s mouth dropped opened and their eyes wide. “What??” He looked down at himself. “W-WHAT!!!” Renji was back into his human giga form. “T-This is impossible!! My giga was at the shop? How did you…When did you…WHAT THE HELL!!??” Jess giggled. “I told you. Now do you believe me?” Everyone was still in shock as she went to sit back down.
Renji was still in shock. “T-Tell is no way!! You must have used some kind of trick!!” Jess shook her head. “I can tell you are going to be a hand full.” Renji was about to say something else. “Renji…that is enough…” They all look at Byakuya. “But captain…” “I said enough…She is what she said she is…She gave you the proof you needed now both you and Rukia stop with this shameful attitude.” Rukia put her head down and Renji turned his head and crossed his arm. “Y-Yes sir…” He mumbled. Jess smiled at Byakuya. “Thank you.” Byakuya said nothing as his eyes was closed once more.
They then heard small sounds coming from the stairs.  Jess then smiled more. "Sabrina I thought I told you to watch over her." They all see a black cat with purple eyes, they recognized it as the same cat from earlier. Sabrina jumped on Jess's lap and made a cat purr noise, Jess chuckles "alright" “Great I bet this cat is supposed to be a part of this little ‘witch’ act…” He says frowning. Sabrina turned her head to Renji and put her ears back. "Shut up you stupid human! how dare you talk to my mistress that way!" Renji raised his eyebrow at the cat. Yoruichi perked up. “Another feline that can take interesting!” Jess laughed "Forgive my her, Sabrina is my familure, she's a cat with a huge amount of magical energy. She is category under Monster Cat with the such magical power. She is very protective of me and will defend me." Sabrina wagged her tail and looked at Renji and hissed at him.
Renji huffed and turned his head away from them. “At least the talking cat is something we are all use to.” “Renji…I do hate repeating myself…” Byakuya says. “Apologizes captain. Kisuke chuckled. “Well if all the fun and games are over let’s get back to this discussion. Jess you said you that Ulquiorra’s spirt was basically dying correct?” Jess nodded. “Have you felt anything similar to his aura, like something else dying around the same time?” Jess tapped her chin. “Yes, actually. The tree where Ichigo and Jenna were the other day. It was also dying but I would need more time to looking to that.” Ichigo looked at her. “…That tree is where me and Jenna first meet. Do you think it’s also connected with Ulquiorra as well?” “Maybe…but only Jenna can fill in the gap. Her memories are returned to her now but I don’t want her to push herself anymore then she has to. Being that she’s almost 18 weeks I don’t want anything more stress to hit her and also about the baby…” She looked to Ichigo and the others. “Yeah what about it?” “When I was upstairs I used a spell to take a peak at the gender…what I found was strange.”
Ichigo raised his eye brow. “Yeah? What was strange?” “The baby doesn’t have a gender…” Ichigo frowned. Orihime looked at Jess. “That’s impossible, isn’t it?” “Maybe this also has to do with Ulquiorra. I don’t know for sure yet…” Kisuke rubbed his chin. “Hmm…no gender huh…” He turned to the captain commander. “Will you be sending the others to help with the hollow problem.” Yamamoto nodded. “Yes, Captain Zaraki is being sent there now along with Captain Mayuri Kurotsuchi, who would determine why the hollows are still gathering. I am also issuing an order that Shinji Hirako, to be brought in for questioning. He has tried to poison Jenna and kidnap her. He must have more information on what we need. If we settle this matter, then the increasing hollow will start to decreases and order will come back to the world of the living. As for you Ichigo…” Ichigo frowned. “Old man, Jenna wants to keep this baby no matter what the cost. She will never give it up and if that’s what she want then that’s what I want to.” Yamamoto looked at him. “Even at the cost of both of their life?” Ichigo frowned and looked down. “It’s Jenna’s choice and I will stick by her no matter what…” Jess smiled softly at him.
Yamamoto nodded. “I see. Then that is all for now.” He slammed his staff down and the TV turned off. Kisuke sighed. “Well now seems like we have an order. We have to bring in Shinji. Byakuya, why don’t you and Jessica here go track him down since you two were the last to see him.” Jess looked to Byakuya. “I can do it by myself. There is no need for her to dirty her hands anymore then she has to.” She smiled at him. “I’ll deliver him at your shop…” He then flashed stepped away. Yoruichi chuckled. “My, My little Byakuya has such a cute crush.” She says looking at Jess. Jess blushed and looked away. “I’m going to go back upstairs with Jenna.” She stood up and Sabrina in her arms. “Oh, there is something else. I’m going to be hiding Jenna’s aura for a while. It should keep her safe until we figure out some kind of plan.” Ichigo looked at her. “How are you going to do that?” Jess smiled. “I have something in mind. Something a little similar to the necklace that had given her the ability to see you in your…ghostly forms.” She turned and headed upstairs.
Later that night Jess was in the room finishing up the last preparation for the necklace she was going to give Jenna. Ichigo was out with the others defeating some hollows that were near the house. Strange enough even before the hollows would reach the barrier around the house they would suddenly disappear without a trace. It made Jess wonder what was going on outside but she didn’t want to leave Jenna unprotected. She sighed and then smiled as she held up a glowing aqua necklace. “Finished…the Dolen necklace is completed.” She got up and sat on the bed. She placed the necklace carefully around Jenna’s neck.
Outside the house Ichigo took down some hollows when he felt Jenna’s aura disappeared. He looked back at the house frowning. “Is this Jess doing?” He watched as the hollows slowly drifted away from the house. Some of them lingered but the other soul reapers took care of them. Rukia flashed stepped in front of him. “Ichigo! Jenna…” “It’s fine. Jess said she was making something to hide her aura. Since aura and spiritual pressure seem to be one and the same she’s okay. Jess wouldn’t let anything happen to her.” Rukia looked at him. “How can you trust that girl so easily!?” Ichigo chuckled. “She’s Jenna’s friend. When Jess came Jenna was so happy. She got some of her happy memories back just be being near Jess. Yes, her being a witch is strange but she’s on our side.” “But still…” Ichigo leaped up. “Your just mad because she was beating the crap out of Renji earlier.” Rukia blushed. “S-Shut up! I was not! Renji deserved that!!” Ichigo smiled before rushing back into battle.
In the house, Jess was sitting down watching the hollows leave. “Looks like it works.” She smiled and rubbed Jenna’s hair. Suddenly Jenna’s body started to glow black and green. Jess’s eyes widen as she stood up and backed up. The pressure she was putting out would have crushed any regular human if they could feel it. Jess stood her ground as the window started to shake. It then shattered. The pieces came flying at Jess but they stopped inches from her face. Jess was unfazed as the glass went back and was through outside. She watched a visible shape of a man take form from the aura of Jenna. A hand reached out and rest on her tummy. Another hand reached over and clawed at the wall as the boy of the man hovered over Jenna protectively. Jess took a step back slowly not making any sudden moments. “’Who are you?” She asked. The aura and pressure pouring out from Jenna finally formed. He was in his final form. With long black hair, white horns on his head, yellow eyes, and everything below his waist was a shadow. He looked at her. “My name…is Ulquiorra…who are you…”
Jess looked at him, studying him. 'I see so this is Ulquiorra... kind of cute...' Jess stepped to him. "You are quite the powerful spirt. My name is Jessica Mikcloud. I’m a friend of Jenna’s.” Ulquiorra looked at Jenna. He rubbed her cheek gently. Jess watched his actions carefully. ‘For such a strong presence, I don’t sense any bloodlust or anything other than coldness but even so his actions right now seems so warm…’ Ulquiorra rubbed her belly. “What did you do…” Jess looked at him and sat back down. “Don’t worry she’s not in any danger. I’m doing it to protect her from the one who attacked her before.” Ulquiorra looked at her. “Grimmjow…that trash wont lay a hand on her…” Jess smiled. “You are protective over Jenna.” “Protective…? If that is what you think. I do what I must to keep her safe so that I may not be erased. That boy has placed her in danger to many times.” His eyes looked slightly sad. “Why did you fall for such a boy Jenna…”
Jess watched him carefully when she felt someone coming up the stairs. Before she could react Orihime busted through the door and fell down with a tray and bowl of soup flying up. “Wah!! Oh no!!!” Jess sighed. The bowl stopped flying and was turned over to where it wouldn’t spill. Orihime still had her eyes closed when she felt herself being lifted up. She opened one eye to see she was back on her feet and the tray of soup. “Your name is…Orihime right?” Orihime nodded. “What are you doing here?” “Um…w-well I thought you would like something to eat and I ended up tripping over my feet and falling down. I-I’m sorry…”
Jess shook her head and looked at Ulquiorra. He was glaring deadly at her. “She’s not a threat to you Ulquiorra trust me.” “She will call the boy…” “She won’t at least not until we finished talking. I have questions for you. Orihime please take a seat over there while I talk please.” Orihime nodded and took a seat in a chair and waited. Ulquiorra looked down at Jenna. “Your quite different…” Jess smiled. “Yes, I get that a lot. Now then, if you answer me truthfully, I’ll let you spend more time with Jenna. As long as she wearing this necklace no one can feel her aura.” Ulquiorra looked at her. “Why did you do this to Jenna?” Ulquiorra didn’t take his eyes off Jenna. “This was the only way for her to remember me…” “Remember you?” “When Jenna was younger she erased me. I don’t want that to happen again.” Jess looked at how gently he rubbed Jenna’s belly. He rubbed her head with the same gesture.
“…Is…Jenna going to die next month?” Ulquiorra glanced at her. “No.” “How do I know you’re not lying?” Jess asked. “You cut her aura off from me therefore you are cutting my life energy as well. I was only able to slip through your barrier due to sharing Jenna’s body and energy.” Jess narrowed her eyes. ‘Sharing…a body…’ She looked at him then Jenna’s belly. Her eyes widen slightly. ‘No way…if what he is saying is true…then the baby Jenna is carrying is…’
Outside the soul reapers were finally done with the hollows. Ichigo sighed out. “Finally, it seems there were after Jenna after all…with the help of Jess it seems we can rest easy for now.” Rukia was frowning. “I don’t know Ichigo…I still don’t trust her…none the less go back to Jenna’s we are going to make sure the area is clear.” Ichigo nodded and headed back to the house.
Jess was thinking as Ulquiorra stayed over Jenna. ‘Oichi has a genderless baby inside her tummy. Ulquiorra said the only way he could get past my barrier by sharing Jenna’s body and energy…which from what I saw is true. He didn’t come from outside he come from inside Jenna’s body…’ She frowned and then gasped. “N-No way…Are you truly going to try that!?” Ulquiorra paused and looked at Jess. Her eyes narrowed. Ulquiorra said nothing. “You better start giving me some answers…” Ulquiorra looked down at Jenna. “I told you. I didn’t want to be forgotten or erased.” Before Jess could ask something else Ulquiorra she watched him fade in and out. ‘Tisk…I can’t stay out for long…’ Ulquiorra looked at Jenna. “Do you know how it feels to be erased and forgotten so easily? To be pelage by memories of the one person who you carried for the most…I refuse to be forgotten any longer. I do not care who has to suffer I will not be forgotten……” Ulquiorra says as he started to fade back into Jenna. “I will be together with her…forever…” He says in almost a whisper.  
Jess sighs deeply. "Look, I know what it means to die... I have died once... I'm reincarnation myself... but I wasn't forced into it, everybody has a reincarnation even a hollow.... but with hollow's its very rare... I can see why you forcing it.... maybe this is your path Ulquiorra..." Sabrina made a cat shuffle noise. "Lady Jess... there coming back." Jess sighed "Sabrina hush I know."
Ulquiorra narrowed his eyes and then closed them as he faded into Jenna’s body. This caused her to stir awake. “Mmm…” Jess smiled and sat on the bed. “Jenna?” Jenna turned her head to the side and opened her eyes. She blinked a few times before her vision came to normal. “Jess…” Jess nodded. “How are you feeling?” Jenna sat up. Jess helped her. “C-Cold…did someone turn down the heat?” Her stomach also started to growl. She blushed slightly. “G-Guess we’re hungry…” Jess giggled and looked to Orihime. “Orihime do you mind?” Orihime stood up. “N-No I don’t.” She walked over and handed Jenna the bowl of soup. “I had brought it for Jess but you need it more.” Jenna blinked at it. “Do you…” Orihime laughed. “No, Ichigo made it before he left. He should be on his back by now.” Jenna took the bowl and took a sip. “Mmm…yeah…my Ichi made this.” She giggled as she started to eat the soup. Orihime smiled. It was soft and yet slightly sad. “Um I’ll go warm up some more.” Jess watched her go.
She looked back at Jenna. “Jenna…I hate to ask you something like this but…do you remember…” Jenna paused and looked at Jess slightly. She put the bowl on her lap. “…I killed my mom and dad…” Jenna said with tears on the corner of her eyes. Jess frowned and hugged her. “Jenna…it wasn’t your fault. It’s not…” “But I wished they were dead…I told him to kill them…I did…it’s just. They were hurting me so much. I couldn’t take it. They took me away from Ichigo. T-They were going to kill me!” Jenna shook as Jess took the bowl from her shaking hands. “Jenna it’s okay.” She hugged her tighter. “Shhh…don’t get upset. Ichigo is on his way back. I’ll make him cook you something good for you and your baby.” Jenna sniffed. “But…” “Enough now. You need your rest. How about a nice hot bath and some yummy food.” Jenna nodded. Jess lays her back down. “I’ll go get your bath started. I brought something special to make you relax even more.” Jenna smiled. “Okay.” Jess smiled. “Oh, and I’m gonna use your spare room as mine for now. I just don’t feel like leaving you here with such a clueless boyfriend. If you go into labor when it’s time I think he would be the one freaking out.” Jenna laughed. “I think Ichigo would do much…” She blinks. “Labor?” She sits up. “I’m…I’m going to make it to that stage!?” Jess smiled. “I told you I’d get you answers and something tells me it’s gonna be a healthy baby boy.” She says leaving the room. Jenna eyes widen as a tear ran down her face. She smiled and rubbed her belly.  
When Ichigo got back to the house he saw Orihime warming up soup. “Orihime? Do you know if Jenna is awake?” Orihime looked at him. “Um I think she’s up taking a bath.” Ichigo smiled. “Thanks.” He quickly head upstairs. He walked into her room where a sweet smelling scent hit his nose. He walked over to the open bathroom door. Jenna was relaxing in the bath with her hair pinned up and eyes closed. “Jenna…” Jenna opened her eyes. “Ichigo!!” She sat up. Ichigo sat on the floor next to the tub and rubbed her cheek. “How you feeling.” “I feel like I’m on cloud nine. Jess said this was some kind of medical herb bath or something to help me relax. Wanna join me!” Ichigo blushed but smiled. “No go ahead and relax, want something to eat? I did make some soup. Jenna nodded. “Yes and Jess said…that she thinks the baby is going to be a boy.” Ichigo raised an eyebrow. “What do you mean?” “She said I was going live Ichigo…she said I’ll make it to the labor stage…” Jenna smiled happily. “I’m really not going to die!”
Tears swelled up in Jenna’s eyes. “Jenna…” Jenna sniffed and wiped her tears away before the feel. “I was scared…I didn’t want to die but at the same time I didn’t want to give this baby up.” She rubbed her belly. “I didn’t want to leave you here alone after everything you have done for me. I felt so conflicted and selfish…I’m sorry Ichi…” Ichigo chuckled and kissed her. “It’s okay. I know how you were feeling. I wouldn’t want you to get rid of the baby either. I could never see you doing that.” He kissed her again. “Mmm…Ichigo…” He kisses her deeply.
Jess was in the guest room on the phone talking to her uncle. “Yeah, I need you to transfer me into the school here…there is something I have to do here uncle so can you just do it please? Yes, thanks uncle.” She hung up on him and sighed. “So…he’s reincarnating himself within Jenna. I will have to closely watch her condition I don’t want any weird side effects happening.” She looked around the room. “Oh the other hand this room is a bit plain for me. Time for a little redecorating."
That next morning Ichigo sat up from his sleep. Rubbing the sleep out of his eyes he looked around. Jenna was nowhere on the bed. His eyes widen. “Jenna?” He got up in a panic, knocking the chair over, he ran out the room. “Jenna!!” He looked around and heard the shower going on the bathroom in the hall. Without a second thought Ichigo ran to the bathroom and kicked the door down. “Jenna!!!!” Suddenly his eyes opened wide. The person in the bathroom was not Jenna. This person hair was red and her eyes were green and wide looking at him. Not to mention she had no clothes on. The air was tense for a minute before they both realized what was going on Ichigo nose started to bleed a bit. “J-J-J-JESS!!!!!! What the hell are you doing in here!!!???” Jess let out a scream. “ICHIGO YOU PERVERT HOW DARE YOU!!!!!!!!” She grabbed a towel and covered herself. She then ran up to him, took two fingers and poked him in the eyes with enough force to send him through the wall. Ichigo twitched and then screamed out as he rolled on the ground from his eyes being poked. “What the hell!!?
Jess walked over to him and started to stomp the mess out of him. “DIDN’T ANYONE TEACH YOU HOW TO KNOCK WHEN SOMEONE ELSE WAS IN THE BATHROOM!!!!!! LEARN SOME MANNERS BEFORE I BEAT THEM INTO YOU!!!!! YOUR NOTHING BUT A PERVERT! PERVERT PERVERT PERVERT PERVERT!!!!!!!” When she was done she picked up his swollen body and tossed him down stairs. “Don’t EVEN think I’m done with you!!!” She yelled then stomped back into the bathroom and slammed the door. Ichigo was twitching behind the couch. He reaches up and tried to pull himself up and noticed that Jenna was sitting on the couch with headphone on eating ice cream. Ichigo blinked and removed the headphone. “Hey! Oh…good morning Ichigo! Ah!! Why is your face all beaten up!” Ichigo pointed upstairs where Jess was still going off about how much of a pervert he was. Jenna laughed. “Oh, yea. She’s going to be staying with us for a while. Isn’t that great!?” Ichigo froze like a statue as he fainted to the ground. “I-Ichigo?” Jenna says.          
About an hour later Jess came down still fuming. Jenna was patching of Ichigo’s swollen face. Jess frowned and smacked him on the back of the head. “OW!! OH come on!!!” Jess crossed her arms. “The least you can do is say you’re sorry!!” “Alright, Jeez, I’m sorry already!” Ichigo says. Jenna giggled. “He didn’t mean any harm Jess and he really is sorry.” Jess sighed. “I’m going out for a walk. Oh and I’ll be starting school with you guys Monday. My Uncle transferred me over last night.” Jenna smiled. “Yay! Just no magic to terrorize the other students…” Jess shrugs. “As long as they don’t over step their boundaries I won’t do anything, plus I’ve seen the people at your school. They aren’t worth using magic on.” She turned on her heels and walked out.
Ichigo sighed. “Your friend is weird…and not because she’s a witch…”  Jenna giggled and kissed his cheek. “It’s thanks to Jess that we got answers right. We know I’m not going to die and we know that it might be a boy.” Ichigo put his arm around her. “I guess your right…I do owe her that much.” Jenna snuggled closer to him. He leans down on her forehead.
Over at Kisuke’s shop. Renji, Rukia, Yoruichi in her cat form, and Kisuke was over there waiting on Byakuya. “You think he can really catch Shinji?” Renji asked. Rukia smacked him in the back of head. “Don’t be an idiot. My brother is more capable of catching a person like Shinji.” Renji rubbed his head. “I didn’t mean it like that. Jeez…” Kisuke chuckled behind the fan. “If Byakuya say he can do it then he will do it. Have a little faith in your captain.” Renji frowned. “I do have a faith in him!” A soon as Renji said that Byakuya flashed stepped with a tied-up Shinji. He dropped him on the floor. “Good work Byakuya!” Kisuke says closing his fan. “Other than one person we all knew you could carry out this order.” Their eyes went to Renji. “C-Captain I never doubted you for a moment!” Byakuya ignored him and turned away. “Where are we going to question him at? He can’t go to Jenna’s since the barrier Jessica has place only allows those who were present in and out.” Kisuke chuckled. “We can question him here. Captain Hitsugaya is already on his way with the others. As soon as they get here we can start. “Don’t we need Jenna and Ichigo to? I mean they might have questions as well…plus with Jenna’s memory intact it would help fill the holes.” Yoruichi sighed. “When you put it like that then maybe we should head to Jenna’s. Byakuya we leave it to you.” Byakuya nodded and flashed stepped away.
Jess was heading over to the park. She wanted to check out the tree. If her hunch was right, then that tree might provide some answers as well. She walked up the hill and made it to the tree. She walked around the trunk and noticed the claw marks. She rubbed them. “My, you have been through quite an adventure. She watched as sparks of green and black aura surrounded the tree. It was faint but she could see them. She remembered what Ulquiorra had said last night. “Could this also be…” She blinked and suddenly started to smile as she felt someone behind her. “It’s getting to be a bad habit of yours to keep appearing behind me Byakuya.” She turned to see him standing behind him. “Why have you come here?” Jess looked back at the tree. “I came to figure out some answers from a different source.” “I see…and what have you found.” “Hmm…that Ulquiorra and this tree are connected. It’s faint but I can see his aura around the tree and considering that this tree is also dying…I say it’s something to go on. Ulquiorra, this tree, and Jenna are all connected. Now we just need to figure out where Ichigo comes in.”  She turns back to him. “On another note, did you need something from me?” She walked up to him smiling sweetly. “Yes, We wish to question Shinji at Jenna’s but due to your barrier we can’t bring him in.” “That should be easy enough. Was there something else you wanted from me??” She asked getting closer to him. “I suppose you can say that.” He says. She smirks and wraps her arms around him. She rests her head on his chest. “I’ve missed you.” Byakuya wrapped his arms around her. “I have missed you as well.” Jess looked up to him and leans up. Byakuya leans down meeting her. Their lips touched gently for a minute before they both pulled back.
“Do they still not know about us?” Jess asked as Byakuya let her go. “No, they don’t need to know anything since has nothing to do with them. We will meet you back at Jenna’s house.” He flash stepped away. Jess sighed. “Again…never says good bye…” She looked back at the tree and placed her hand on it. For a spilt second she saw images of Ulquiorra, Jenna, and Ichigo flash through her mind. She took her hand away from the tree. “I see…you wish to see them, all three of them here before you pass on…your last wish…” Jess then smiles at the tree. “Don’t worry I will help you fulfil your last wish.” A light breeze ran through her hair gently making her giggle. “Your welcome…” She backed up and head back to Jenna’s house. “Now let’s see what information this Shinji knows.”  
An hour past by and everyone was back at the house. Jess had made a door way to allow Shinji, and a few others, to enter inside the barrier. She also slipped on a captivate blue, black and white allure eye, beads and hamsa Fatima hand charm bracelet on his wrist, sealing his spiritual pressure. They were all sitting in the middle of the room looking at Shinji. Jenna clinged to Jess a bit, who as sat down beside her. Looking closer at Shinji he looked pretty beat up. Shinji coughed a bit. “That was kind of unfair sending in a butt kicker like her…” He looked at Jess who shot him a glare. “…and then sent Captain Kuchiki after me…so not cool Ichigo.” He then looked over to Jenna who shook under his gaze. “If you wanted information all you had to do was ask.” Ichigo glared at him.
He walked up to Shinji and grabbed him by his shirt. “You kidnapped Jenna, fed her poison to tried to kill her! I say Jess gave you what you desevered!” “Hey, take it easy there. My body is already in a lot of pain here. I already agreed to share the information with you. So chill a little.” Rukia pulled Ichigo back. “Let’s hear him out.” Toshiro and Rangiku walked in from the kitchen carrying a TV. “It would be troublesome to bring that huge TV in here so this will have to do for now.” He sat it on the table and it turned on by itself. The commander popped up. “So, I see you have captured him. Good work.” He looked at Shinji. “Now, Shinji now that you are capture you will tell us everything now.” Shinji rolled his eyes. “That’s what I am trying to do here head captain…If Ichigo was the one to find us I would have happily answered his questions.” Ichigo growled at him. Jess sighed. “Ichigo that’s enough.” Ichigo felt himself being pulled back. He was thrown on the other side of Jenna. “Instead of losing your cool, maybe you should watch after Jenna. She’s scared…”
Ichigo frowned at her but then looked to Jenna who was looking at the floor. Ichigo sighed mentally and grabbed Jenna’s hand. “It’s okay Jenna. We are going to get through this together.” Jenna looked up at him and nodded and wrapped her arms around his, squeezing his arm slightly. She buried her face in his arm. Ichigo rubbed her head.
Shinji looked around. “So I guess this is everyone? I guess we can get this started.”  He made himself comfortable on the floor and sighed out. “So where to start…hmmm ok well why not from the beginning.” He looked over at Ichigo. “I’m sure you all know who killed Jenna’s parents by now right?” Ichigo’s eyes narrowed. “We were there when that went down. We were too late to stop it though. It was a sad shame to see little Jenna go through all of that.” Ichigo gritted his teeth.
Shinji looked at Jenna and then around the house. “…back then Jenna’s house was covered in this black and greenish aura. Just like this house is now. It was so intense that it kept regular hollows away from the house itself. However, it didn’t stop them from coming endlessly, keeping their distance. What caught our attention was that if the hollows came close to the house they would be killed on the spot and eaten. Soul and all.” Toshiro narrowed his eyes. “If that was true then how come we didn’t hear about this?” Shinji chuckled.
“For many reasons, you don’t need to worry about. You can ask your head captain about those details. Anyways. Me and my companions went to check it out. We stacked out the house for a couple of months. That’s when he appeared.” Shinji paused. “That bastard…I don’t know why he was there but it must have been a version of himself before he was with Aizen.” Shinji says. “Are you talking about Ulquiorra?” Ichigo asked. Shinji nodded. “He was different from the one you fought. Just like now he was clinging onto to Jenna since she was a child. I don’t know why he picked her but he did. He was feeding off of other Hollows to keep his form alive.”
Jess rubbed her chin. “…to preserve energy no less…” Shinji looked at her. “Well aren’t you the smart one.” Jess looked his way. “Do not try my patience, the only reason your alive even now is for your information.” Shinji chuckled. “Feisty…but yes, he is preserving his energy. You can tell when he is around. Whenever there are large groups of hollows gathering he will be the one they are trying to get to.” Toshiro frowned. “Are they trying to devour him?” His eyes looked to Jess. “They were surrounding the house last night so that means…” Jess sighs. “Yes, he was here once more last night.” They all looked at her. Ichigo frowns. “What the hell Jess! When were, you going to actually say something about this!? What would of happened if he came after Jenna!!” Jess looked at him. “Ichigo, this is the last time you will raise your voice to me.” Her eyes started to glow slightly green sending a chill down his spine.  
Renji frowned. “See we can’t even trust her! She’s already holding back infoma…” Before Renji could finished his sentence the fly swatter smacked him hard in the face sending him flying into the kitchen. “You are getting very annoying.” Jess says. She closed her eyes and chanted something under her breath. The doorway to the kitchen glowed slightly green. Renji got up, rubbing his redden face. He was about to make he was through with he was suddenly shocked by green lighting. He fell to the ground twitching.” Jess smirked. “Stay in there and be a good boy for now.” Rukia looked at Jess as Jess looked around the room. “Make no mistake I had no intention of keep this a secret from anyone of you but, I to had questions on my own that I wanted to know and got answers. I also wanted to meet this Ulquiorra to see if there was truly ever a real threat. As well as check somethings, out on my own. I was always going to tell you what I found. I will share any information that I have if it is to help Jenna.”
Shinji chuckled. “It’s hard to gain trust with outsiders doing things their own way. Who’s to say your actions haven’t sent Jenna to her death already?” Ichigo’s eyes widen. Jess looked at him as silence filled the room. She then turned to Jenna whose face was still buried in Ichigo’s arm. She then smiled. “There is nothing to worry about…Ulquiorra, wither he wants to admit it or not, will protect Jenna until he is done.” Shinji frowned. “Oh, and how can you be so sure?” Jess rubbed Jenna’s back. “He won’t hurt the one person he cares about. Everything that has happened these past four months have led up to the moment for when he could finally be one with Jenna again.” Ichigo looked at her with a confusing look. “What…are you talking about…” “The child Ichigo…the reason it doesn’t have a gender, the reason why they rejected those women, the reason why Ulquiorra is doing all this…is to reincarnate himself through the child Jenna is carrying…”
