Kazui: *stops trotting towards the school building long enough to turn around and wave at his parents one last time*
Orihime: *can’t reply because of the lump in her throat, but tries to keep her tears under control as she smiles and waves at her son*
Ichigo: *chuckles under his breath as he reaches around, pulls Orihime against his side and waves to Kazui with his free hand*
Ichigo: Have a good day! We’ll be right here when school lets out!
Kazui: *nods enthusiastically before heading inside*
Orihime: *takes a deep, shaky breath*
Ichigo: Hey, hey now…
Ichigo: *reaches into his pocket and pulls out a packet of tissues he had made sure to grab before they left the house and hands them to Orihime while trying to keep a straight face*
Ichigo: I thought we agreed last night that we were ready for this.
Orihime: *takes the tissues from Ichigo, struggles to open them for a few seconds before they finally fall from her trembling hands*
Orihime: I know…but he’s my baby!
Orihime: *buries her face in Ichigo’s shirt front and tries to keep her voice down while she attempts to recompose herself*
Ichigo: *keeps one arm around her shoulders while wrapping the other around the back of Orihime’s neck so that he can cover the grin on his face with his hand; also, it’s really difficult for him to keep himself from laughing at first, but then he thinks about having to sit through one of Urahara’s lectures and the urge dies very quickly*
Orihime: *finally gets her emotions under control enough to peek up at Ichigo and ask in a quiet tone*
Orihime: Could we pick up a treat for Kazui on the way home? To celebrate his first day?
Ichigo: *reaches up to take one of her hands*
Ichigo: Anything you want.
Ichigo and Orihime: *walk hand in hand away from the school*
THIS IS NOT OK. JYPE please let him rest. they’re giving him great opportunities, but i rather not watch him on those shows than see him so exhausted and overworked like this. he’s completely run down. he didn’t deserve this. he needs a break.
So yeah, a kbtbb coffee shop au where mc’s a barista and eisuke’s a frequent customer
The first time he visits the shop, he orders a latte. MC makes his latte, but she unfortunately spells his name wrong and puts too much milk and sugar in his drink
MC: One tall latte for… Ass-ke?
So lol Eisuke’s like wtf man, but he takes a sip of his coffee anyway and much to his surprise, it’s delicious lolol
Since then, he’s been a regular customer of the shop, ordering the same thing every single time, but even then, she still writes ‘Ass-ke’ on the cup
He doesn’t know if she purposely misspells his name to annoy him lolol but oh well at least the coffee’s great and the barista’s hella cute
