"I'm going to get an incomplete this quarter." Ichigo winced as he sat up and sagged. As once again his night had been far too long. "No you won't, not if we can help it." The four living dolls said as they dragged a lengthy report towards him. " Huh? Whoa! That looks heavy. How...." Kon huffed as Ichigo picked it up. "Rukia said you might not have the time. So she told us what the assignment was." Ichigo breezed threw it and snorted, it wasn't all that bad. "I owe you big time." Then he moved just as his dad busted down the door, to which Ichigo put a well placed kick into the ole man's backside. Quickly he slide sideways to avoid the counter, grabbing up his book bag and the report. "Oh, come on old man. I have to go to school." His father snorted.
"That's never stopped us before." Ichigo kicked him hard in the face. "We do have a guest." At the mention of Rukia's presence it had the old man reddening and heading down stairs mumbling something about some paper work he had to file. Ichigo snorted and put the report into his bag and headed towards the laughter coming from the kitchen. A funny smile lighting up his face as he thought of how good it was to have Rukia back. Even if she kicked his ass whenever he saw one of her ridiculous bunny drawings.But this morning she was pouring over a fashion mag with his sisters. Wow all three of them were really
pouring over the lay outs. A knock came at the door and a strange voice came from the other side. Uryuu? What the hell was he doing here? Chad? Orihime? What was going on? He opened the door and only caught 1/2 the conversation. But it wasn't what he'd thought. Shit! The big dance, he'd forgotten all about it. He sagged.
Orihime hurried over to the table and was fully engrossed into the latest fashions and which stores carried which dresses and blah-blah-blah...as they all headed out the door. "So did you get your report done?" Uryuu asked as they stayed as far behind as they could from the gaggle of giggling classmates which made all 3 young men shiver. "Yeah I got some help,but I just don't know how I'm going to test out of this year. Especially if I don't get a break. Hell lately it seems like its getting worse instead of better. Do you think Keskai has any idea of what's going on any more then we do?" Uryuu frowned. "Its worth a try. Even if he is crazy." Chad merely nodded his agreement. Whether to one or both who could say. "Pozi? Pozi Sisa? Has anyone seen Pozi? " Karin's teacher said worriedly. She had seen on the news of the recent rise in missing children-sometimes of whole families. All without a trace.So far it was all over seas, but some day it would be happening here if nothing was done about it. Could Pozi be the first? Suddenly the door burst open and Pozi stood there panting tired and sweating profusly. "S...sorry I...I'm so late. I over slept." The teacher sighed and smiled.
She wiped her tears away and nodded to the girl who hurried to her seat.Karin sighed. "What kept you?" She whispered to her friend.The girl sagged onto her desk, her face planting itself onto the wooden plank. Pozi turned her head to Karin. " Mom didn't want to let me go.I had to escape from my window. She's been watching too much of the news lately. Kids going missing, whole families sometimes without a trace. Now she wants me to be homeschooled. I know school's a drag, but then I'd miss out on all of my friends and what about the big dance fundraisers.
How could I possibly miss those?" Karin rolled her eyes as Pozi sighed heavily towards the boy she liked. "Forget it, Pozi he's not your type." Tyna said with a derivative snort behind Pozi. Karin wished she'd had her hat to hide behind, these two never let up on each other. It was almost like they fed off each others antagonizing. She shivered, had she not known the two arguing nuts since kindergarden she'd have thought them some kind of new hollow for her brother to put to down. Would Rukia stay all year this time or would she have to return to the Soul Society? What was going to happen to Ichigo when he finished school? Work with dad? Go full on soul reaper? Go to college? She doubted he'd even thought that far, with all that he was....
" Karin can you come up to the board and finish the equation?"
Rengii stretched his heavy muscles as he re-accostomed himself to the gegi. " I really hate all this weight. Its so much easier to move in my reaper form."
