you were due any day now, you thought you’d be happy, but to be honest with everyone you were very worried and scared. millions of what if’s were rushing through your mind. and the only reassuring thing about this all was that the entire nursery was ready for the baby arrival.
You were sitting on one of the wooden stools in the kitchen. by your side, there was your favourite pastel brown mug with an owl design full of some soothing peppermint tea.
the smell was relaxing and you didn't notice Kisuke entering the kitchen.
„ everything alright? „ he asked, making you look a bit with surprise at him, Kisuke was working on something for the past couple of months and it felt almost strange to see him now.
„ yeah, everything alright „ you told him with a reassuring smile on your face „ I guess it just feels like we became a bit distant to each other for the past couple months „ you added dropping your smile.
Kisuke came closer towards you „ I'm sorry (F/N), „. he said, giving you a comforting hug.
„ I did finish working on this project „ he added gaining your attention.
you looked up at him. you could feel him taking a deep breath.
„ (F/N), I wasn’t completely honest with you from the start. „ he begins.
„ I'm not who you may think I am „ he continues. you give him a look of surprise „ what could he mean by that „ you thought.
„ you see I am not human, I'm a Shinigami, I used to be a high ranked one at that, a captain of one of the divisions in the soul society which is a place where Shinigami live and where most Souls dwell until they are reincarnated into the Human World.” he began to explain
you look in disbelief, why was he feeling you this now?
„is this some sort of a joke Kisuke? „ you asked, the story sounded assured to you and you found it hard to believe.
„ unfortunately not „ he said seriously looking down.
„ why are you now off all times? „ you asked
„ (F/N) are you aware of the young orange haired boy who sometimes comes to our shop” he asked
you nodded „ yeah, I'm aware of him.. His name is Ichigo right? „
„ yes, well you see he's a substitute Shinigami, he's human, but he posses Shinigami powers „ Kisuke began to explain
„ and? „ you begin to question
„ well, there's a high possibility that our child would inherit my Shinigami powers, and put him or her in danger because it will have a high spiritual energy which may attract hollows „ he said
your eyes widened „ hollows? „
„ yes, hollows they are a race of creatures which are born from Human souls who, for various reasons, do not cross over to Soul Society after their death and stay in the Human World for too long. They are corrupt spirits with supernatural powers, which devour the souls of both living and deceased Humans.” he explained again
your ruffled your hair with your hands „ what's going to happen now „ you said in slight panic
„thats what I have been working on „ Kisuke said gaining your attention back. he pulled out a small silver coloured necklace with a hollow symbol engraved on it.
„ how's this going to help? „ you asked
„ well you see, I used to be the founder and 1st President of the Shinigami Research and Development Institute, so it was my job to come up with inventions, this necklace isn't ordinary it was designed to hide the child's future powers so that the hollows or other Shinigami won't be aware of their powers”
