Romantic Moments - Christmas"GOOD MORNING ICHI - ACK!"
"Dad! Will you knock that off!? It's really annoying!"
Ichigo Kurosaki glared daggers at his father, who was rolling on the floor clutching a bloody nose. Every morning Isshin Kurosaki did a so-called surprise attack on his 19-year-old son. And every morning he got punched square on the nose before he even got close. Ichigo was growing extremely tired of it.
"You do this every single day! I'm sick of it! And when I have company over too!"
"Ah, my manly son! You have become so strong! And having company spend the night! My son has become a man! My-"
"Will you shut up and get out of here?! You're gonna wake him up!"
After grabbing his father and tossing him bodily out of the room, Ichigo locked the door and stalked back to the bed. He glanced at the other figure on the mattress and his expression softened. He reached over and gently stroked his sleeping companion's hair. As he did so, light blue eyes fluttered open and looked up at him.
"Mm, Ichigo? What is it?
Unexpected Ch.52 weeks later.
After Ichigo's wounds healed and Hanataro had left, Ichigo took a leave of absence from school and moved back home. Shiro was now 2 months along, the equivalent of 7 months for human women, and on strict bed rest. And it drove the albino nuts, which caused him to drive Ichigo nuts as well. The young Soul Reaper was exhausted from taking care of the pregnant hollow all by himself. Getting assistance from his family was the only way Ichigo was able to have any rest.

In fact, Ichigo would almost swear that Shiro was embarrassed by all the care Yuzu was giving him.
"I still can't believe it! Ichigo's gonna be a dad? Too weird! And with a hollow as a mom? I just can't wrap my mind around it! I-"
"Kon, will you do everyone a favo
Unexpected Chapter 4"Ichi? Ichi, can you hear me?"
The voice was grating to Ichigo's pounding head, like nails on a chalkboard. His entire body ached all over and he felt completely drained. But at least the pain proved that he was still alive. Ichigo slowly opened his eyes, squinting against the light. His vision was blurry at first, but it soon cleared to show Shiro and Hanataro leaning over him. He could see worry in their eyes.
"Where am I?" he asked. It came out as a groan.
"I the dorm room," Shiro answered. "I called old man Urahara and he got in touch with the Soul Society. They sent over Hanataro to fix you up."
"I'm glad I got here in time to help," Hanataro said. "You were really banged up. Any longer and you might not have made it. You lost quite a lot of blood."
"Let's not talk about that," Shiro said. "Ichigo's alive, that's all that matters."
Ichigo smiled at the loving concern in Shiro's voice. He began to push himself to a sitting position and Shiro automatically moved to support him. The
