“…What a happy expression you have there”, Ichigo thought as he looked at Rukia’s peaceful face. He felt deeply that… he was so fortunate to come to Soul Society, that he was so fortunate to have something to protect.
the thing about being out of your depth is that there’s a really good chance you’re just going to sink. But if you reach up your hand…someone might be there, to help you keep your head above water. - Tara Webster, Dance Academy
