shunshin-no-shisui said: [chuckles] oh itachi, i almost forgot how cute you used to be. [ruffles hair] though i’m not sure how i’ll survive the next few days now you can’t reach the stove anymore…
Itachi only blinked, confusion surfacing on his features when the other had suddenly decided to ruffle his hair. The stove? What on Earth was he talking about?
“But have we met before?”
Eyelids fluttering shut Shisui exhaled sharply. Itachi was clever yes but that didn’t mean he was about to figure out their newly extended age gap, especially with the tight grip he held on logic which most certainly did not match up with Iwakiri’s ‘rules’. And he had thought any introductions that would occur between the pair were long gone.
Crouching down slightly Shisui grinned widely and prodded the small boy once, firmly on the nose.
“Yes, many, many times before.” Cocking his head to the side he surveyed the child’s soft features, a sharp twang in his chest at the thought that this boy was not yet a murderer. “And it is very unlike you to forget one of our village’s greatest heroes, Itachi-kun!”
Amber orbs blinked slowly open and a forehead scrunched in confusion as the walls that met said orbs were rather unfamiliar, in fact there should have been no walls at all. A tussled green hair of hair was raised from a pillow which was just as strange, for had she not gone to sleep with her brothers and Barrabarra in the desert of Hueco Mundo?
Where am I…
The small figure scrambled down from the bed and frowned as she realised that she was in a strange room without the familiar presence of Dondochakka or Pesche nearby. They would never go anywhere without her so surely they would be close by… right?
With these thoughts in mind, the small child raced out the door into an unfamiliar corridor only to sense the presence of strange beings that were definitely not Arrancar. Nel was frightened that they might be shinigami but she had to find her brothers.
Nel began wandering around in the hopes that she would find her family or at least a familiar Arrancar that she could ask for help from although the search seemed to be in vain. After a seemingly endless search, she decided that anybody would do, if she could even find someone in this strange place that is.
Just then, footsteps were heard and without further thought as to whether it was a friend or foe Nel launched herself at the person and clung onto them for dear life. With a tear-stained face she barely managed to ask her question…
“Where is Nel?”
Rubbing hard at closed eyes Shisui once more suppressed the yawn that had been threatening to pull at his tight lipped mouth. What with the array of children and toddlers padding around the school, classes had been far quieter that day - especially as even some of the teachers themselves were currently a little… unfit for their vocations - and as such the raven had found it hard to keep even the smallest shred of interest he normally held onto for his lessons.
Dropping his arms to his sides he span quickly on the spot to search for the fast approaching sound of small footsteps on the hard tiled floor. Gaze darting to below waist height Shisui saw a head of familiar green hair, though far shorter and situated on a far smaller person than he was used to. Before he could get out any words of greeting or questions over whether she was indeed the girl he suspected her to be the child had already lunged at him, tiny arms wrapping around him with a surprisingly vice like grip.
Her voice was laced with a heavy lisp and muffled by the small sobs that escaped her in her current state of distress. Automatically he rearranged himself to give a secure grip on the toddler, not that he could see her falling off anytime soon, and slightly awkwardly patted her unruly sea-green locks. The comforting of children was not something Shisui was particularly accustomed to…
“Hey now,” Gently he pried her shoulders back a little to let their eyes meet, a soft smile now adorning his lips. “It’s okay, you’re in a school – you’re safe here. What’s the last thing you remember?”
Smiling Shisui -Doodle-
I plan to color it someday… ^^’
ooc; -backhands and then pulls into a hug- ;A;
ooc; B( I’ve missed you too!! [nuzzlenuzzle] B|
No sooner had he stepped out of his dorm, pulling his recently acquired jacket a little tighter to his frame, than a familiar voice attracted his attention. Glancing down his gaze was met with one of wide amethyst orbs set against delicate features that most certainly did not match the expressions that usually adorned them.
A smirk on his lips he took the few steps to eliminate the distance that separated them and he did not quite manage to catch his tongue before speaking words that were almost definitely inappropriate considering her position as his teacher.
“Yes, I do find it preferable to stay in bed as much as possible with weather like this - but if it has caused you to miss me too much you are more than welcome to join me in future.”
ooc; fgghgfsfg >< Yes I was orz and for far too long! But I’m back now, for good hopefully! [snuggles] Sorry to have worried you anon!
The next gift Shisui found left for him in his room that evening was much smaller and, unlike the previous, there was no trace of either chakra or reiatsu with it to give any sign of who might of left it. Although it did not take much to piece together the most obvious suspect, or at least who the gift was supposed to remind him of.
Wrapping the thick ribbon around his fingers Shisui tried hard not to think of wide jade orbs and the many conversations that they had never managed to have.
Without really giving it much consideration about it Shisui palmed his cell phone once more, fingers moving quickly before he could change his mind.
Happy holidays, Temari.
The sunset looks so beautiful across the snow.
The faintest hint of Itachi’s chakra signature as Shisui approached home that evening was enough to let him know his cousin had been and gone some time ago. A little strange, there had been no message to let him know his cousin was planning on stopping by, and Itachi was not usually one to drop in unannounced.
As he pushed open the door to his currently unoccupied dorm room, phone in hand with a half written text to the long haired raven, Shisui paused - dark eyes locking onto the package left on his
Dropping down beside them it was mere seconds before the bow was opened, amusement flickering across his face as he imagined the disapproving look on his cousin’s face as he purchased the unhealthy treats, and a stick of pocky was placed between his lips. Slowly his fingers ran along the thick material of the jacket and he felt instantly guilty for not yet returning the favour with a gift of his own, but really what was there to get someone like Itachi who wanted so little? Pushing these thoughts away he reaffirmed his decision to take Itachi out, if there was something he could give him it was a little more fun in the rather mundane life he lead here at Iwakiri.
Maybe next year you could go for some dental care to sort out the cavities I will no doubt have by then, eh?
We need to catch up soon! Much love, as always.
shunshin-no-shisui said: [Looks at Ulqui-chan’s phone] Hm, I guess they got the wrong number, eh?
“As with you in terms of your choice of company.”
“Though today I will pass on questioning you and pen it down to your penchant for being a nuisance- as per usual.”
“I think you’ll find I always make the best choices when it comes to the company I keep, at least aesthetically.”
“Besides, I will always make special effort to be a nuisance when it comes to you, Ulqui-chan.”
