My Desperation  
How often is anything posted here? XD Yeah. Thought so.

So, in return for onijutsu supplying me with three cans of Mountain Dew, I was supposed to write three drabbles for her by two minutes ago. Needless to say, I FAIL like Byakuya knows how to smile.

Title: Succumb
Series: Bleach
Characters: Matsumoto Rangiku, Ichimaru Gin
Notes: Spoilers up to Chapter 133? Episode 48?

Rangiku walks, humming merrily to herself. Soul Society was brimming with energy, a festival raring to go in just a few hours. “Now, how to talk Captain into changing…”

She rounds a corner and freezes. She takes a few steps back and moves to the side. “Excuse me, Captain Ichimaru.”

“So formal!” He blocks her path again. “It’s like you don’t know me!”

“Do I really know you?” she asks lightly. She does look at his eyes.

He raises a hand, and she immediately backs away, wary. His hands stays up, palm facing her, a sign of surrender. “Now, now, no need to be so hostile!” He grins knowingly. “I’m not goin’ to hurt you.”

A retort is on the tip of her tongue, but she exchanges her first words for others. “What do you want?”

He walks towards her; she keeps her ground. The wind is still, and she can’t hear the bustling of the hurried preparations nearby. Her focus is on her childhood memories, and she refuses to waver.

(Rangiku wants to ask him why. She wants to call him an idiot, to tell him to give her reasons, to tell him she doesn’t miss him, to tell him she wishes she doesn’t miss him, but his smile is false, and it will not break her.)

The silence lasts for seconds and only feels like seconds, but she wants it to last for more. She knows his next words will not be ones she wants to hear.

“Come with me,” he says, smile still etched on his face. He doesn’t move, and his face is angled in her direction.

“No.” She straightens her posture.

(Instead, she wants to say, “I won’t follow you again.”)

He lowers his hand and tells her enigmatically, “Things change.”

(“But you don’t.” The words are on her lips.)

“That’s why,” she says quietly. She walks forward, closing the distance between them. “Now, if you could please move, I need to return to my captain.”

“It’s too bad.” He turns and travels down the path, disappearing once he reaches a corner.

Rangiku frowns as she watches him. All she can see is his back again, and she mutters, “Maybe if you changed.”

(She’s not sure if that’s what she wants.)

I initially wanted to do something or use something from "Winter Fireworks," but obviously, that didn't pan out. XD
Byakuya/Hisana and Byakuya+Rangiku forthcoming!
Current Mood: worriedworried
