Ichigo quirked an eyebrow at his…how would he classify his relationship with Shinji? In some ways, he would say Shinji had been something of a mentor to him what with his assistance and guidance in training Ichigo to control the Hollow inside him. On the other hand, Ichigo just couldn’t bring himself to respect the guy as a mentor because of all the stupid stuff that would spew out of his mouth from time to time, like Shinji claiming that Orihime was his first love and things like that. Obviously, he was more than an acquaintance but he was definitely not quite a friend. So, while there were so many words that could somewhat describe his connection to Shinji…well, he was getting side-tracked.
Right now, Ichigo was trying to come up with an excuse not to go along with Shinji and his hair-brained scheme this Saturday night, which also happened to

"As the prince saw the Little Mermaid dissolve into the sea his heart broke. Silent tears spilled into the water as he realized just how much he loved the mute girl who could never say 'I love you' out loud but said it in every move she made and in every painful smile.

"The angel replied, 'But do you not want another chance with her? In three hundred years she will have a soul and will reborn as a human. God has truly seen your regret and has given you another chance to be with her but be warned she might not love you back this time.'

Chapter 1: Acceptance
Ichigo Kurosaki stared lazily out of the window as he fiddled with his tie. Even now, in Summer, the occasional light shower of rain appeared to run the risk of him having to drag the umbrella out of the tiny closet by his front door.
He'd been told time and time again to at least attempt being content with his tiny apartment, for the sake of a little peace, but he couldn't take it for much longer. Besides, once the weather began to drop, he'd need a place somewhat more reliable with heating. The walls of the cramped two-bedroom dwelling were too thin for his liking.
Someone whimpered in the next room. Slinging his work jacket over his shoulder, he slid out of the little place he had quite vague reasoning to call his bedroom. More than anything, it was just a hole which happened to contain, barely, a creaky double bed and his bulky closet.
There were only four rooms in total. That would be the bathroom, his own room, the open, yet
A Full Day/DateThis date was going to be...for lack of a better term, insane. It was ludicrous. Absolutely nutty. There was no way it was going to work out properly.A Full Day/Date10 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Ok, so maybe Ichigo had not taken Orihime on a date in quite some time and maybe he did have a substantial amount of funds in order to take care of all the bills that would be accumulated on this day, but seriously…what had he been thinking when he agreed to this? It was to be a date completely centered around enjoying the arts in almost all its glorious forms.
First, Ichigo had purchased tickets to see a special exhibit in the art museum displaying sets, costumes, playbills and other paraphernalia of Shakespeare plays over the years. Then, he was going to take Orihime to an outdoor production of Shakespeare’s immortal play ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ followed by going home in order to change into some fancier outfits so that they could go to an exquisite restaurant and enjoy a fine dining experience.

The sun was almost hidden behind the mountains and the orange glow was coloring the river, shining in his course.
Two men walked side by side. One, a big amount of muscles and dark hair, with soundless steps that really didn't belonged to such a huge frame. The other a tall and thin man, with hair the color of the setting sun, that was kicking every stone in his path.
The sun was quickly disappearing, leaving the world under the shadows' domain. The orange haired man now with his hair looking like a brownish color, bitten his lip, squirmed with his left hand inside his pocket and finally opened his mouth.
"Chad…" Ichigo started, grabbing his companion attention. The giganti

The carrot haired boy reached the classroom with a weird trepidation in his stomach.
He was not nervous… Kurosaki Ichigo could not, simply, be nervous over a simple matter like this… Or was he?
He felt the wood of the door under his fingers, the smooth surface in nothing easing his… weird feelings… yes, because it could not, absolutely, be nerves!
He sighed and backed away from the door…
Who was he trying to deceive? He was scared out of his mind! What would other people think if they saw him do something like that?
But he loved her, there was no doubt in his heart about that… damn, they were a couple already and everyone knew… then why such a simple gesture was so hard?
He remembered his sister Yuzu's advice, this morning, when she saw his pale face.
"Why do you like her, Ichi-nii?"
He scowled when she asked, but his sister replied he should think about that if he was getting cold feet. And t

"Kurosaki-kun!" Orihime Kurosaki stood by the stove, her hands covered in red bean paste and her apron fitting tight over her round belly. Embracing her, Ichigo kissed her forehead lightly, rubbing his fingers through her delicate, auburn hair. Smiling, he broke their passionate hug and kneeled down, kissing Orihime's slightly rounded belly. "How was work?" Orihime's quiet voice was angelic.
Ichigo shrugged. He had been working for Urahara for a while to get money to support his family. After all, he did have quite the hand-

Ichigo Kurosaki stood outside his house, leaning against the wall near his front door, looking up at the moon. "Damn…this is the quietest night I've been through in quite a long time." Between hunting down hollows and saving the human realm from anything that attacks it, most of which happened at night, Ichigo could not remember the last time he could remember a quiet night. In fact, the only action around his house was when the police had to chase down someone who broke into a house down the street. And as Ichigo ran a hand through his orange hair, he really hoped it'd remain that way for a long, long, time.
And that's when his phone rang.
"Great, now what could it be?" Ichigo pulled out the phone. A blue and pink cell phone no less, and each time he saw it he had to roll his eyes. The phone that his dad had

Ichigo couldn't help the slightly skeptical look he gave his girlfriend as she tugged on his arm. He tried not to let the girl pull him off balance as she yanked on his arm forcefully more force than he would have anticipated. Apparently, she was REALLY keen on getting to the comic book store.
Sighing, Ichigo moved his long legs a little faster as he said, "Orihime, I doubt they will run out of comic books so soon. The whole thing only started 15 minutes ago and it only takes about 10 minutes to get there."
Orihime's face had a determined look as she declared, "That's what I thought last time! But when I got there I only just managed to get about half of the comics I wanted while the other half were completely gone!"
With a sigh, Ichigo said, "Fine. I just hope you can keep up."
Ichigo's stride lengthened so that he had overtaken Orihime and was now in the lead in a matter of seconds. When he looked back, he couldn't help the sm

'This isn't working out. We need to call it quits.'
Two short sentences. Ten simple words. One earth-shattering text message.
The final nail in the coffin was hammered down when Orihime read the name of the person whose phone had sent the devastating message.
'Ichigo <3 !!!!!!'
There was no mistake. Ichigo had just broken up with her via text message.
The next moment, Orihime's vision was completely obscured as her eyes were flooded with tears. She didn't even have the presence of mind to make her way over to the couch less than two paces away from where she was standing in order to be more comfortable as th

However, little do the wise and knowledgeable parents understand that their children are actually right. There is a lady who rides upon the cold yet strong North Wind bringing the blessings and curses of winter with her. And as she passes by homes inhabited by those same families, she will oftentimes look inside the frost covered windows and sing in her low, melancholy voice to the occupants of that same residence, though only the children heed her song.
She is the Snow Queen.
~A Walk In The Snow~*Ding Ding Ding* Ichigo stared up from his notebook paper, which he was doodling on. The rest of the classroom started piling out, making a loud ruckus in the hallway. Chad and Uryu stood behind him, Chad cocked his head, "Ichigo I don't know what the big deal is, she's right there, just go ask her." Ichigo turns his head back down to his notebook, "No, It's fine guys, just.. go enjoy your holidays, I'll be out there in a minute." Uryu adjusted his glasses with his index finger "Try to hurry, it's freezing out there." Ichigo nodded while still staring at the notebook, Chad and Uryu soon shuffled out. He sighed, "Kurosaki-kun?" He jumped from his seat, and looked up and the mystery voice, "Orihime? What are you still doing here?" Orihime squirmed in her standing position, "It's.., it's just I usually stay awhile around these times, It's really cold out there, and I lent my jacket to Tatsuki who was going skiing this weekend, so I was wondering, maybe.. maybe you could take me home."

Ichigo's blank stare of surprise gradually turned into one of disinterest, boredom and with just a hint of disbelief. He was fully prepared to politely decline the woman's offer, but Ichigo's companion opened her mouth and responded before he had a chance to process what was going on.
"That sounds like fun! Would you please sing with me Ichigo?"
After the question was asked, unfortunately Ichigo had been about to say something, but the shock of what had just happened caused him to hesitate and as a result his mouth was left hanging open in a rather dumbstruck and stupid expression. His jaw still slack, Ichigo turned his confused gaze to meet the excited, inquiring light dancing in his companion's eyes which quickly turned into mortification.

The never-ending cycle of battle had allowed him to almost completely lose himself in the motions he had executed countless times. He had forgotten why he was fighting and who he was fighting. Faces blurred together. The only things he focused any attention on were the weapons in gripping hands.
In all the monotony of fighting, he felt something swirling just beneath the surface of his consciousness waiting. Waiting for what he did not know since he couldn't remember who he was or what he was doing other than acting and reacting to attack and defense stimuli.
Sounds were garbled and senseless to his ears. Smells of battle were nonexistent. The feeling of sweat and blood slowly leaking down his body and straining muscles didn't bother him. His brain had shut down any conscious thought and functioned only on instinct.
A gentle tugging at his peripheral vision caused him to automatically wrest his gaze away from his opponent. That
