I corrected some typos and changed a few sentences, trying to add a couple of extra jokes, but nothing major. Some characters are OOC. They didn't want to be nightmarish enough while in character. For others it was a piece of cake. If you think I'm bashing someone, remember it's all in Hitsugaya's head. I don't own Bleach. It was the night before the paperwork was due, there was a huge pile of unfinished documents on his table and his fukutaichou was nowhere in sight.

She had popped up in the office shortly before noon, tried to smother him with her breasts, complained that said breasts were conspiring against her, doodled on a couple of reports and then went for a lunch break, from which she had yet to return.

And it was already 2 AM. He sighed, signed the report he had been reading and reached for another. He realized he had no idea what he had just approved. He only hoped that it wasn't the permission to drink sake at work Matsumoto slipped among his paperwork every once in a while, but he had neither the time nor the energy to reread it.

It wasn't like it mattered, Matsumoto would always drink at work, permission or not. He squinted at the next paper. It was a requisition form and he started filling it dutifully. His hand ached from endless writing, but he didn't let go of the brush. He wasn't sure he could even if he wanted. He was certain the muscles in his hand had cramped from staying in the same position the last twelve hours and it would require some difficult medical procedure to pry them loose.

He looked ruefully at his teacup. He wanted to take a sip of the warm liquid, but the cup had been empty since earlier this evening. And he had no time to get up and make new tea. He couldn't even order anybody to do it for him; the administration building had been empty since 10 PM. And 10 PM was coincidentally the time he had thought he had finished, but then he had discovered a pile hidden under Matsumoto's desk. He didn't understand how he could have missed it earlier, but his lazy lieutenant hadn't tried such a lame hiding place for years.

So he was stuck here doing paperwork through the night and he doubted he'd be able to finish it in time even if he worked through the night. Sleep was completely out of the question, but he felt so tired. He squinted at the paper. The kanji seemed either dancing or merely unfocused and once again he realized he couldn't recall what the report was about.

He felt like banging his head on the table and since there was nobody around to see him, he did so. And laying his head on the table felt so comfortable. He closed his eyes for a moment to rest them. He had no time to relax, but he really couldn't go on anymore.

And it was just for a moment. He'd resume work again in no time. It isn't humanly possible for anyone to be worse than her. It had been nearly two hours since he had sent his lieutenant off for some tea and the man wasn't back yet.

What was taking him so long? He was tempted to go look for him. That is, if he was sure he'd recognize the man when he saw him. There was something about his vice-captain that just made people overlook him and forget about him the moment they turned their back on him.

Hitsugaya was no exception, no matter how much it bothered him. What kind of captain he was if he couldn't even remember his second's name? His musings were cut short as the door slid open and the person in question came in. I had to carefully pick the best tea leaves from my latest harvest, check whether they have properly dried, check that there was no mold on them, find the ideal kettle for that particular brand of tea, bring and boil spring water, because the one from the tap just cannot compare, find the tea set best matching this brand of tea, bring and boil new water because the old one cooled down and reheated water doesn't taste the same, No respect for their elders.

No respect for tradition. It used to be unthinkable when I was young. I used to actually respect and obey my elders, not order them around His lieutenant took a step back, his numerous golden ornaments clinging.

Toshiro suppressed a wince. The fat man surely was an eyesore. Not only he was grossly overweight and balding, he had also an atrocious fashion sense. Whenever Hitsugaya pointed it out, the man had the gall to claim it was a sign of refinement. Honestly, that moron was incorrigible. But then his whole family was the same, so maybe he shouldn't blame him.

And he shouldn't judge anyone based on his appearance, because that would be childish, but with Oomaeda it was really hard. The small captain winced and wiped his face clean with his sleeve. It was looking dirty considering how many times he had to do it today, and it was barely noon.

And Hitsugaya hated looking untidy. This time Hitsugaya didn't even try to suppress his wince. I mean the smudge," Hitsugaya clarified. Now look at this mess! It's full of smudges, crumbs and your dirty fingerprints! And is that snot? Now I'll have to rewrite all of them! The door slid open and in came his lieutenant. His second-in-command was reliable and hard-working, but his constant depressed face and the air of despair he was emitting was something he could do without.

Am I too late?

Bring the paperwork here. He looked like he'd collapse with the next step. It was such an utterly miserable sight that it was influencing even the usually stoic captain.

He tried to look a bit cheerful, but it was nigh impossible in Kira's presence. It always made him feel like the sun suddenly stopped shining, the trees withered down and died, the pile of unfinished paperwork on his desk multiplied and there was no way he can complete it before the suddenly so close deadline He was succumbing to Kira's field of depression. The situation was far form hopeless.

It wasn't even bad to begin with. Only his lieutenant's presence made it seem so. He was a captain. He could deal with it without being reduced to a sobbing mess. He picked up the first document and briefly scanned it. Kira watched him with the eyes of an abused puppy. Hitsugaya signed the document and picked up another. His vice-captain was still watching him intently.

He found it increasingly hard to concentrate in the aura of despair Kira always dragged around. He seemed even more hunched over than usual. Hitsugaya felt sorry for him and almost said that there was nothing wrong, but he had a duty to fulfill. The number seems too high. His eyes widened in horror.

Toushiro Hitsugaya

I don't deserve to be a lieutenant. Eternal shame on me! He tried to fight it off valiantly, but it was too much for him. Soon tears filled his eyes as well. I'm a wretched excuse for a shinigami!
