Time of DyingTime of Dying
Did I... win?
Did I... lose?
I'm lying... on the ground... so... I did lose... right?
Blood... comes from my wounds... it feels... cold... bleeding to death feels like... all warmth in your body... flows out of it...
It hurts so much... it's burning... that's odd... since I'm so cold... or... am I not even awake? If I'm not awake... then that's a nightmare... wait... a dream doesn't hurt... so I'm really dying...
On the ground I lay
Motionless in pain
I can see my life flashing before my eyes
Did I fall asleep?
Is this all a dream?
Wake me up; I'm living a nightmare
That's right... she's somewhere near here... what if she's hurt, too?
I'm not allowed to die... not yet...
I have to find her... I have to help her... and if I can't help her... then I can give her my presence... at least that... one shouldn't die alone... it's too lonely to die alone...
I have to... survive... for her...
I will not die (I will not die)

"To plunder that which has been lost
Blood and flesh and bone and something else"
Cover Poem of Bleach Volume 41 'Heart'
He had never returned.
After the battle with Aizen he just never came back. They found the traitor's blade but there was no trace of his or him for that matter. He just
He just disappeared.
They said he was dead but there was just no way. No way that stubborn ass could die.
I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
They said she was too shocked to accept the truth but they were those who didn't understand. There was nothing she was supposed to accept. What was there to realize? He just disappeared. It's not as if he died. Because
Because Kurosaki Ichigo does not die.
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
She was furious. Oh, hell knows no wrath like a woman scorched. And if he ever decided to come back he was so going to pay. For making her wait. Making her wait for his ungrateful ass. Beca

"Where the fuck is that idiot! I can't believe he makes me worry for his safety! Did he fall asleep somewhere after exterminating that low-ass hollow or something! ARGH!"
Kuchiki Rukia was stomping through the streets of Karakura, immensely livid at the orange-haired daikô who had gone AWOL after chasing a low-ranking hollow halfway across town and not returning even after more than an hour had went by.
The rustling of fabric alerted the shinigami towards an alley leading towards the city park, a snarl forming around her lips. "Asshole, don't you dare play hide and seek with me!" With an indignant "hmpf" she followed the shadow towards the park, her glare deepening with every second passing.
That bastard would pay.
I am outside
And I've been waiting for the sun
When Rukia arrived in the middle of the park the figure had stopped its flight, the noble stomping angrily towards him. "You moron! You had me worried sick

Bones cracked apart.

And when it rains
In this side of town it touches everything
"Hm?" The blond male turned around, his daughter's hand clutched firmly in his rough, calloused one as he stared easily over the heads of the crowd around, the arm around his wife's waist tightened slightly as he spotted black clothing in the far distance, a vast contrast to the colorful people about. A frown marred his tanned features. "Shinigami?"
His wife had an arm around his waist in return, and hers tightened just the same. "Let's get out of here quickly."
"Lucia, come on, we need to get home, sweety."
Just say it again and mean it
We don't miss a thing
"Karin? Karin!" The red-head hit the Kurosaki over the head, earning himself an icy glare from the black-haired woman. "What was that for, you asshole!"
"Firstly, watch your language, or your brother will want my head if we ever meet again
love will find a way where wolves fear to prey
There were humans who called them shapeshifters. They were those who held at least the tiniest ounce of respect for them and their powers.
Then there were those who called them monsters, beasts, and various other names. They were those who feared them and wanted them dead.
They themselves called their race Lupines, much like the creatures they could change into.
Contrary to most people's belief their actual bodies didn't change. It was merely their soul that was dragged into the open, the shape of a wolf, for the world to see.
They didn't lose their sanity.
They didn't fall prey to a primal thirst for blood.
And yet they were shunned as monsters, hunted after and killed by those who didn't understand.
Didn't understand their wish to live.
"Are you that stupid, or just acting like it, runt?"
The tall, orange-haired man was glaring at his subordinate, who was glaring right back

I like pigs. Dogs look up to us, cats look down at us, pigs treat us as equals
I was currently lying on my back while Rukia crawled my stomach, both of us sitting on the living room floor after breakfast.
Being a cat wasn't always bad.
Especially with her crawling me like this...
Go: Gangs and Black Cats
The faint buzzing of her pager made me tense and ears perk up. I wouldn't be able to fight hollows with her like this, if even my Zanpakutô and inner hollow had been turned into cats.
Please be Renji or some other fucktard, please-
"Renji! What's up?"
"Hm? You want to talk to Ichigo?" Damn it. What did the idiot want? "Sorry, but he hasn't been home for four days and I don't know where he is." She was still stroking my stomach while intently listening to Renji on the phone, and I desperately hoped they wouldn't move heaven and hell to find me while I

Kurosaki Ichigo always loved the darkness of the calm night, and not even his mother's death changed anything about it. Something about the blue and black of the moon-reigned world fascinated him the moment the sun's rays disappeared behind the far horizon, bathing the world in a faint silver glow.
That night only acted as proof for his fascination, when that black butterfly entered through his window, casting a fragile shadow over his features for the briefest of moments, his gaze following it only to meet with the petite figure of Kuchiki Rukia, stepping calmly through his bedroom wall.
If only he had known then what the future would hold, he would probably have refrained from kicking her ass.
Not that her reaction hadn't been funny.
Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna throw it back to you

The long, bright hair shortened in length until it consisted of only short, spiky strands of orange, slightly longer on the sides of his face and the back of his neck, side burns barely noticeable under the thick locks.
"You may visit earth for one week, son, look at it as a birthday present of sorts."
The black bindings formerly wrapping his chest slowly faded to a dark red button-down shirt, his ragged, black pants replaced by equally black jeans, dress shoes concealing his naked feet as he flexed his right hand under a scrutinizing glance, the last of the bindings fading into his skin.
"Conceal yourself at all times, and don't get too friendly with anybody. It will only cause trouble for yourself and us."
"Trouble, huh?" A smirk graced his sharp features. "You should know better than to play the serious-card on me, dad. I'm a rebellious teenager, after all, who knows what coul

"Death is not the end" Kuchiki Rukia
She stood there like an angel, his breathe hitched in his throat as he locked gazes with her. He could see it right there, in those violet orbs of hers. She had missed him just as much as he had. A smile crept onto his features, nearly unrecognizable but he knew she could see it. And she smiled as well; the breeze ruffled her raven hair.
"Rukia " he said in a choked whisper.
"Long time no see Ichigo."
'When was the last time I felt like the rain stopped?'
With every appearance by you, blinding my eyes,
I can hardly remember the last time I felt like I do.
You're an angel disguised.
He could hardly breath; the oxygen mask didn't help in the least. It felt more like it made the feed of forcing air in his lungs ten times more difficult. The nasty sound of the cardiogram next to his bed signaled his heartbeat was very slow, just barely above a cardiac arrest.
But when a well-known and loved presence forced
Don't Be JealousDon't Be Jealous
Ichigo shivered slightly as another clap of thunder rang through the house
He glanced over at Rukia
She was doing something or other on her laptop as he scribbled in his sketchbook
It was a rather lazy evening; no one was doing anything important
It was a Saturday, only a week before his first Christmas with Rukia and everyone was very relaxed
He yawned quietly and suddenly heard a quiet noise coming from downstairs
He looked up and exchanged looks with Rukia before they both slipped off of the bed and out of the room
"Awww Ichigo a kitty!"
Rukia said as she rushed to open the door and rescue the little kitten from the cold rain
He smiled as she picked up the tiny cat and went to find a towel
He wanted to help the kitten.... until he found out that said cat was evil and set out to get him....
Ichigo glared over at the kitten on the bed and gritted his teeth
That CAT had taken Rukia...
That CAT was laying in the bed being pampered an
(MORE PETs AU!!)
Rukia bit her lip slightly
She had been feeling a little.. strange... lately and she was starting to get suspecious...
She wasn't sick
Or atleast she didn't think so
But other than that there was only ONE possible reason for her to be feeling so odd...
Rukia asked quietly as she walked into the Cheetah-Woman's room
"Yeah?" she asked as she combed her hair
"Y-You... don't happen to have... um.. a uh.. p-pregnancy test on you... do you?"
Yoruichi raised an eyebrow
"You think you might be?"
"Maybe... I'm not sure.."
She smirked and opened a drawer, slinging a home pregnancy test Rukia's way
"Why do you have this in your make up table..?"
"So Byakuya doesn't find it and freak out, it's just in case anyway," she said with a shrug
Rukia's eye twitched slightly
"Th-Thanks... that's a little more info than I needed but thanks...."
Ichigo groaned and ran his hand down his face
'Come ON Rukia..' he thought
'This is just rediculous... al
Baby NamesBaby Names
A girl... I finally had an idea of who my little baby was going to be... SHE was going to be a little girl... But we still didn't have a name for her, "How about Yuki?" I suggested, Ichigo shook his head and I crossed it off my list, "Fubuki?" He shook his head again "How about Renjina?" Renji piped from the hall, Ichigo hissed and tossed a pillow at the chimera, "Alright alright I was just kidding! RenRen is MUCH better!" "No!" Ichigo muttered, "Rene? Renie? Ren-Jin?" Suddenly Yoruichi came up behind him and slapped her hands over his mouth, though we could still hear him muttering in distress underneath her paws.... "Ignore him my Pretties, you name that little baby anything you want, that's your right as parents, and actually, Rukia should be the one naming her, your opinion shouldn't matter Ichigo," Ichigo tilted his head and I frowned, looking over the side of the couch at my sister, "Sister! Why would you say that?" "Because it's true, you're the one pushing
I should have guessed....
It was my own fault for letting her come here
I must have been drunk or something to let a rabbit come HERE of all places...
Rukia and I came down to a local mall so we could get some art supplies for a new photoshoot....
...And we just HAD to walk by it...
A small play area for kids
She took one look at all the babies and toddlers and I could almost hear her biological clock start to go off in my ear
She looked up at me with big, sparkly, eyes and her ears slicked back
"Ichigo..." she said quietly, making that "I-want-it-I-want-it-I-want-it-let-me-have-it" face that she was famous for...
I gulped and took a step back, feeling like that look could very well kill me
She just took a step forward
"Ichigo...." she repeated longingly as I backed up and she came forward, until finally.... my back was met with a wall
"Babies," she said quietly, her face bright, her eyes sparkling, her ears slicked back, and her hands in a pleading position
I gulped again and s
Rukia flipped a page in her book
Ichigo had been her PET for the last week and things were going well
He was rather shy and cautious, especilly around someone other than her
But he was also attatched to her hip
Well so to speak....
Like now, for instence, he was sleeping, curled up next to her with his head on her stomach and his paws hanging off the bed
She smiled lightly and thread her fingers through his bright orange hair
Causing him to twitch in his sleep
This amused her and she bookmarked the page she was on to give her freind a bit more attention
She ran her fingernails over his scalp lightly and he twitched again
But it wasn't a twitch of annoyence, it was one of pleasure
And then the unthinkable happened
Right as she was about to yank her hand away and go back to her reading...
At first she was positive that that was NOT the case
That she was mistaking it for some other type of sound
Like a growl or a roar maybe
But then it happened again and this time she w
Her fingers pulled roughly at his hair
Her lips smashed against his in a feverent exploration
Her fingers twitched in aticipation as she pulled and tugged on his orange strands
He fumbeled to keep up with her quick pace
The way she moved her fingers
The way she moved her mouth
The way she twitched and jerked as if she was having electric currents shot through her body at every minor touch
He was addicted to it
And intoxicated by it
His hands ran up her back and stopped when she unhooked her mouth from his
He purred lightly in question but she didn't take the time to answer him or even acknowledge the sound
Instead she reached up and lightly blew on Ichigo's ear
The apendege twitched and she smirked, biting the little fuzzy thing and earning a loud yelp from her companion
As a rabbit her nature was quick thinking and impulsive, but she honestly hadn't thought she had hurt him, she had only meant to give him a little lovebite, or a love NIP actually
He slowly squirmed out
Haunting HourHaunting Hour
"Oh come on Ichi-chi!! Don't look like that!" Rukia pleaded, tugging on her husband's arm, he groaned in response and kept his face burried in his pillow, "I SWEAR it isn't that bad! Mermen are MANLY!" another groan of dissaprovel, "Come on, please come downstairs with me?" Ichigo sighed, his manipulitive little wife had somehow, SOMEWAY maneged to covince him to match costumes with her as Ariel and Eric from The Little Mermaid for Halloween... and HE got stuck as Ariel!! Currently he was wearing a green.. skirt... of some sort... to make a fin and nothing else... and he didn't want anyone to see him like this... "I mean it cold be worse, Brother and Sister made Renji and Grimmjow dress as matching ballerienas, they wanted you for the third to make a set but I didn't let them," she said nonchalantly with a shrug, he sat up slowly, "Reeaarry?" "Really," she confirmed
"Ru RIED!!!" Ichigo shouted, "N-Now now! Just because you can speak, somewhat... again doesn't me

"Listen, you're drunk, you don't know what you're doing," I said, standing protectivly in front of my mistress as she shivered behind me, "BULL! She's my wife, you're my PET, you have no right to back talk me so just do what you're told!" the man hissed, slugging me in the jaw, I groaned as his claw scraped across my mouth and blood poured from the fresh wound, I had been taking this for the last couple of hours and I was in alot of pain, but still I wouldn't budge, "Get out of my way you stupid lion!" he shouted, grabbing an empty vodka bottle and bashing it over my head, I flinched but still did nothing, receiving multiple blows from my owner, the one that finally sent me down though was when I was kicked between the legs, that really hurt.. I doubled over and winced in pain, only to have a shard of broken glass from the vodka bottle shoved into my chest and dragged upwards, I gasped in pain and screamed when the tiger-man's hand dove for my th

I had only been a PET in the Kuchiki household for about three months at this point
And surprisingly I actually was well accepted here, I wasn't thinking I would be since Byakuya originally didn't want Rukia to purchase my contract
In reality the two of us had a type of comradary forming...
....Except when Rukia was involved....
Techinically, I was still Rukia's PET, therefor, because of my contract, I am legally bound to be on her side
Even if I'm morally on Byakuya's....
....So I try my hardest to keep busy or be out of the house should the two of them have a disagreement
Like now, for example, I was morally on Byakuya's side but I was legally forced to be on Rukia's side....
It isn't MY fault that my contract was purchased by a teenage girl...
"Rukia, I do not want you out that late at night," Byakuya said sternly as I folded laundry
"But Brother I'll be home by 12:30! I just HAVE to get this book at midnight tommorrow, I just HAVE to!" she chirped as I star

She left him for dead on the bed.
That little, evil wench of a rabbit-woman, that's who.
Don't get him wrong, she was already restraining herself the best she could. It wasn't her fault that she was ready for it 24/7 and he about as much a nymphomanic as Byakuya was a rockstar. But there were just times when her instincs got the best of her and she drained him out until he was just that.
He couldn't move an inch even if the house was to burn down, or someone held a gun at his head.
It's common for the mate of a rabbit to die of their... sex drives, but he didn't think it would be THAT bad.
He had been taught better, apparently.
He faintly heard the door to their bedroom open, and soon soft paws began massaging his back. He groaned. 'If you think I'm up for it again you're deadly mistaken, woman...'
Rukia slapped him lightly on the back. "Baka-Ichi, I was sorry I tired you out so much, so I thought I'd give you a little backrub."
Okay, maybe she wasn't th
