BLEACH - Memories In Vain - 3
. : g u i l t : .
Bleddyn took refuge under Ichigo's bed; in the dark and out of harm.
Ichigo sighed and said quietly, "You can't hide in the dark forever."
Ichigo sat on the floor waiting for him to show his face. Moments that seemed to last eternities passed. Bleddyn slowly walked out. He was wearing the same agonized expression that he did earlier at Urahara's.
"Its my fault. Rukia... could have died." His eyes were filled with tears.
"Hey... Look at me," said Ichigo. "Look at me."
He waited until Bleddyn's eyes met his. They were so dark and penetrating it took Ichigo moments before he could speak. "Sometimes in life bad things just happen." His father told him those same words once.
Even though Ichigo still believed that he himself was the reason Rukia almost died, he felt he had to say something; he felt he had to help Bleddyn. He didn't want anyone to feel as bad as he did. Ichigo sat on his bed.
"Here, why don't you sleep on the end of my bed tonight?" suggested Ichigo
BLEACH - Memories In Vain - 2

The sounds of Rukia's footsteps disappeared as Ichigo swung away at the Hollow who, even though had only one arm now was able to block all of Ichigo's attempts of shattering it's mask.
Ichigo then heard a scream.
It was Rukia's voice.
"RUKIA!" he yelled in the direction of her scream, hugely concerned; his attention completely focused on Rukia's well being.
The Hollow took Ichigo's moment of distraction as an opportunity to make an attack. He got his arm slashed badly by it's cat-like claws.
Full of rage and worry, he decided to end the fight quickly.
He stood back holding Zangetsu tightly in both hands and yelled "GETSUGA TENSHOU!" A blue beam of energy was released from the large blade, completely destroying the Hollow's mask. It howled loudly as it's existence vanished.
Ichigo ran as fast as he could toward the direction where he heard Rukia's scream, completely forgetting about his heavily bleeding arm. He spotted her unconscious body by the water.
