A PET's Gotta Do....
Ichigo's head jerked up and he looked around the dark room, his heart thumping loudly in his chest
Now his heart was REALLY thumping in his chest.....
He looked over at his Owner
There she sat, on the edge of the bed, her laptop in her lap....
"Ruuuuuuuuuu," he called, tilting his head and crawling towards her
As he got closer he could feel her trembling slightly
He started to get really nervous now
What if she had broken a bone or something?
He had no idea how she would do that....
But Rukia had a way of being able to do anything at anytime.....
"Ruuuuuuuu!!!!" he called again, nuzzling her shoulder
She finally looked over to him
Her lip was trembling and her eyes were watering
"Oh Ichi-chi...." she muttered
"It's..... it's Bubbles..... look!" she cried, showing him her laptop
Then he saw it
There was a HUGE crack going up the side of it
"Wow....." he muttered
'What happened to it Rukia?'
"I have no idea! I was shutting the lid for the night and suddenly it just... cracked!" she screamed
'Don't worry Rukia, we'll get it fixed tommorrow morning,' he promised
"Well it's pretty deep, we'll have to replace the entire plastic casing," the young, cyote man replied
Ichigo didn't like that guy
He had black hair and black ears and a little bit of facial hair
He was young and ..... charming .... and Rukia probbably thought he was attractive...
ICHIGO thought he was attractive.....
"How long will that take?" she sqweaked
"Not long, a few hours, once we get the parts,"
"And how long will THAT take?"
"Two maybe three days," she sighed in releif
"How much will it cost?"
"About twenty-four hundred yen,"
"What?" she sqweaked
"Sorry, the parts are expensive," he replied with a shrug
"Ruuuu," Ichigo muttered, pulling her aside
'It would be cheaper to just buy you a new one,'
"WHAT?! We can't get a NEW computer!" she replied
'Rukia just CONSIDER it...' he asked
"No, I don't want a new one.... that one has all my files, my pictures, my programs, my internet, my bookmarks... EVERYTHING on it!"
"Actually we can get all of that transferred for free," the cyote piped up
'Just think about it for a little bit ok?'
"I need a computer, I don't HAVE 'a little bit'," she replied, crossing her arms over her chest
'Rukia, this one is the same price as it would be to get your old one repaired,' Ichigo pointed out, showing her a silver Toshiba laptop
After an hour of convincing both by Ichigo and the cyote-man Rukia relented and decided on the new computer
The cyote-man said he would have all of her settings and information on her new computer by tommorrow morning and thus the two left the computer shop
'Are you excited about your new laptop?' Ichigo asked with a swish of his tail as they got into the carrige
"Yeah, Toshi is really nice...." she replied
She named the computer
She names everything
'So why are you upset?' he asked
"Because," she muttered with a sigh
"I LOVE Bubbles..... I feel like I'm leaving a puppy at the pound...."
'It isn't like that at all, your computer has been having trouble for the last few months, it was going to completly crash at some point soon,' he replied, nuzzling her lightly
"Yeah but I still feel bad about it..."
'Don't, once they fix it they'll re-sell it at a low price to someone that really needs it,'
"You're right about that I guess...."
'Right, that.... or they'll put her to sleep and sell her organs...' he joked
"Don't SAY that!" she screamed, pushing him slightly
'I was kidding! I'm sure they'll sell her,' he replied
She sighed lightly
He hugged her gently, one thing about Rukia is that she got easily attatched to things, he didn't want to make her give up her laptop for a new one, but sometimes a PET's gotta do what a PET's gotta do
"Thanks Ichigo," she wispered, leaning over and giving his cheek a kiss
And sometimes it had it's perks
