For only the second time, I am posting a story here. This time it's Bleach.

Oh, and you won't really know what's going on unless you're reasonably up to date with the manga. At least at the beginning of the Hueco Mundo arc.



Grounded

Ishida’s chats with his father were often less than cordial Today’s meeting was probably going to be even chillier than usual. He realised that this would go badly as soon as Ryuuken set down his pen (exactly parallel to his paperwork, Ishida noticed) and looked up when Ishida entered the office.

So, this would be the lecture about that trip to Hueco Mundo.

“Uryuu. You give me no choice,” Ryuuken said, without so much as a greeting. “As of tonight, you are grounded for a month.”

Well. Ishida hadn’t been expecting that.

“But…why?” seemed to be the logical question.

“There was a condition to our deal, Uryuu, and you broke it. You swore not to associate with Shinigami again. Yet you did anyway.” Ryuuken’s voice was not disappointed. Nor was it approving. He was just stating the facts.

“If you mean Kurosaki-san, he is technically not a Shinigami.” Well, it was true.

“Ah yes. Technically, Kurosaki Ichigo is a Vaizard. A Shinigami with Hollow powers.” Ryuuken paused. “Which, Uryuu, is even worse.”

This was why Ishida hated arguing with Ryuuken. Victory was impossible. Especially if he were to ignore the details of their agreement.

“In any case,” Ryuuken continued, “if I thought you knew that before you began to associate with him, you would be grounded for six months instead of one.”

Oh. Well thank goodness for small mercies. But Ishida still had points left to argue.

“We acted without the approval of Soul Society. They had nothing to do with our expedition.”

“And yet Kuchiki Byakuya gave tacit approval and aid to Kuchiki Rukia and Abarai Renji, and hence to you.”

“Technicalities,” Ishida snapped.

“As is your entire argument. And then there is the matter of where you actually went when you left,” Ryuuken replied.

“Inoue-san had to be rescued. I swore to myself that I would help her.” This argument, at least, made perfect sense to Ishida.

But Ryuuken had an answer to it. He always did. “Ah, yes. Quincy pride. The suicidal tendencies of our kind made tradition. It excuses nothing.”

Ishida started angrily, but he was interrupted before he could form a coherent argument.

“We are not talking about you sneaking out to go to a party. We are talking about you sneaking out to infiltrate the Hollow world and the headquarters of a rogue Shinigami captain.” Ryuuken paused and appraised his son, not wanting the discussion to continue much longer.

“Your mission was absurdly risky and highly unlikely to succeed.”

“But-“

“But nothing, Uryuu. You are grounded for a month for your foolish behaviour. Be glad I have not decided to stop your allowance as well.”

Ryuuken picked up his pen again and returned to his paperwork. Ishida, recognising defeat, left the room.

---

About fifteen minutes later, Ryuuken took a call from a local clinic, ostensibly requesting a patient transfer.

“Hey there, Ryuuken.”

“Good evening, Kurosaki-sensei. Thank you for informing me of the details of my son’s…excursion…to Hueco Mundo.”

“No problem.”

“But that reminds me. How did you discover those details for yourself?”

“Neither my son nor Rukia-chan bother keeping their voices down while they fight. I could hear them quite clearly from the kitchen. My son kept Rukia-chan in his closet for two months, you know.”

Ryuuken snorted. He was not surprised.

“And what did you do when you found out?”

Ryuuken could visualise Isshin grinning his most inane grin.

“I grounded him, of course.”


And there you have it. Work on my TT parody is in progress. Very slow progress.

Does anyone else visualise Ryuuken and Isshin going to the same Parenthood 101 session?

.... you can write it anyway. *nudgenudge* For some reason, in my mind, Naneo is the teacher; Ryuuken, Isshin and Shunsui are her students. You can imagine the pandemonium in her class. XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD.

No, what I can see is the Kurosakis being very sociable with the Ishidas, or at least Ryuuken's wife...and Ryuuken giving all of them a totally blank look.
