After that wonderful massage from Kuukaku, I left to find
Pretty Boy Jyuushiro. No sooner was I on my way that I realized that Miss July's turn-ons included motorcycles and walks on the beach I had forgotten something at the spa.
So, I headed back, and it seemed that as soon as I retrieved the goodies, an attractive young maid was calling my name! He looked a bit cold in the skimpy uniform, so being the gentleman that I am, I offered him something to keep him warm.
I had no idea he had drunk so much, but just then his father arrived
another very attractive person, I should add, who upon arriving launched himself at me, screaming "date rape".
Eventually, he settled down and had some interesting information for Yoruichi. In order to ensure their conversation wouldn't be interrupted, Maid-san and I entertained the invisible yet powerful viewers.
This is when we start making our way to the mansion, where Maid-san came from and where Ukitake was waiting for me. However, Maid-san somehow got turned around, and we ended up at the older Ishida's office. These Quincies - I had met some before the Extermination, but these two are rather odd. They fought with each other about sackcloths, alcohol - and the older one even believed that Cat's Cradle would cure a hangover! It didn't seem to work, though. Poor Maid-san should drink more, in order to build up his tolerance.
Then, just when I thought I couldn't be more miserable, Ryuzoji Isshin showed up to save me! I knew he didn't leave to chase after Urahara or Yoruichi. It's even better - he was in love. After a while, we were off to the mansion again, but not before singing a classic with Ryuzoji.
I must have missed Ukitake more than I expected - and really, this was the first time I saw him since we left Urahara's shop - because I picked him up and spun him around. In front of an audience. I suppose the only strange thing about this is that Jyuu wasn't even slightly embarrassed. But right there in that room was a young Vaizored
again, in a dress! Isn't that strange? who was going on about how useless shinigami are, and Waterford crystal. He seemed very concerned about how much money we had.
Anyway, Ryuzoji showed up moments later and proceeded to get upset and strangle the young vaizored. So, I took that as time to leave - when Ryuzoji is like that, it's best to give him his space. We retreated to the garden, where we came across Abarai, who was forlornly staring at the hot tub
he and Rukia-chan must have been putting it to good use because - he proceeded to tell us about his feelings for her, and about their upcoming wedding. It must be tough for him - to be in love with his taichou's sister, and for this taichou to be so uncharitable to him. Ah well. Love will conquer all in the end, eh? And perhaps he will still let me throw him a bachelor party.
Would we need to invite Kuchiki? It would do him good to relax a little.
