HitsuKarin: Heaven Forbid chp6Upon returning to her room, Karin saw Ginko had changed into a more casual yukata and lay stomach down on her bed painting so immersed in her work she didn't notice Karin enter. It was only after the student had collapsed down on her bed that she jumped, whipping round to face Karin in shock.HitsuKarin: Heaven Forbid chp62 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Either you've learnt to flash step like Yoruichi or I zoned out completely. As talented as you are I'm going to go with the second one." Karin couldn't help a small chuckle.
"Obviously. What are you painting?"
"Oh, nothing much," Was the quiet reply as the older woman ducked her head down, a light pink spreading across her face.
"Well you're no fun," Karin joked, sensing this was someone who'd be open to a laugh and sensible and secure enough not to take such comments as insults.
"Sorry to burst you're bubble Kurosaki-san," she replied, chuckling in return, "Where'd you disappear to?"
"I just had to apologise to a friend. They brought me back here after last night."
"Ah, what would we do wi
HitsuKarin: Heaven Forbid chp8Toushiro smiled as he felt her reiatsu flare, before it came hurtling towards him at a surprising rate. He'd managed for the first time in year to actually get Matsumoto to not only do her own paperwork that day but his left overs too. She was a good friend deep down and he reckoned part of her wanted him to actually have a social life. Very deep down. Under the part of her that whined for ages when she had said she wanted to go out, and until he had launched into a very stern tired about every single night he'd spent in the office without even the option to go out, the detail of what it was like to be stuck inside night over night horrifying her. A part of him wished he'd done it years ago, but the sad truth was, years ago he didn't really mind. There was no one to go out and see that he could stand the extensive company of, and by doing the work himself he could make sure it was actually done right, not in his fukutaicho's rushed fashion.HitsuKarin: Heaven Forbid chp82 years ago in Romance More Like This

As she opened her crusty eyes, her head was pounding like Omaeda had just started dancing on it. Thoughts were reduced down to single words like, 'aspirin' and 'water' before 'shit, soul society' upon realising that there wasn't a convenient medical cupboard in the communal bathroom. As she stood, rather unsteadily, to make her way to the kitchen for her other object of desire her stomach turned against her.
Somehow she forced her unwilling legs to run, making it to a toilet just in time for her body to throw up every little thing she'd consumed in the last 24 hours. Eventually, when she thought the worse was over, the memories hit her like a bullet.
"Except I got you Toushiro, you'll be there for me, ne? Be back like when I was a kid and you helped win that soccer game against the middle schoolers."
Her stomach chose that moment to revolt again. With her head resting on the toilet seat, she berated herself, embarrassed f

Toushiro was woken by the sounds of banging on the door followed by a loud shout of "Oi, Sleepyhead! Wake up, it's time for breakfast!" He couldn't stop himself from chuckling a bit at the now familiar sounds of Karin downstairs in the kitchen. She had the radio blasting out whatever new song was currently at number one and he knew that she would be dancing around right up until the moment he went downstairs. Of course, she was far too mature for anyone to see her dancing so she would stop when she heard him coming down the stairs.
He took this as a challenge.
He had a good feeling about today, despite the fact that he had been staying with Karin for over a week now and had not even gotten close to his goal. But today would be different- he was definitely going to catch her out today.
He hastily got dressed and began his plan. He knew that she would stop if she heard him coming down

The eleventh was the only exception with Ikkaku and Yumichika there. On arrival back to the academy, they had found lists on the wall of who was to go where. One group would be remaining in the academy, not deemed ready for squad life, the next were all regarded as potential fourth squad and asked to remain in lessons for the next couple of days to learn some more advanced kido. The longest list was to go to another hall, where they were to be inspected by the fukutaichos of the two or three squads the teachers had deemed them most suited to. The final and smallest group stood with Karin in the room she was in now, composed of those who had battled the hollows or who had shown particular prowess during their classes, just over ten in all. They were given about half an hour to discuss with the fukutaichos there and come to an agreement as to what squad they would join.HitsuKarin: Heaven Forbid chp42 years ago in Romance More Like This
