Rukia glanced in Ichigo's direction
He was reading a book about something or other wile they waited on dinner to finish cooking in the oven
She continued to stare at him but he didn't seem to notice or pay attention if he did
Finally she had had enough of waiting and decided to take matters into her own hands
Ichigo flipped another page in his book when he felt something crawl onto his lap
He looked down and saw Rukia laying across him
He wasn't sure what to do
How did he respond to something like that...?
She frowned at him and grabbed his hand, jerking it forward and placing his fingers in her hair
He hesitated, still not sure if he should really do this or not...
But he slowly started to stroke her hair back and forth
She smiled and sighed lightly as he scratched behind her ear
He smiled as well and cotninued to lightly stroke her hair
He may be new at being her PET and he may be new at being around someone so... affectionate... but he was quickly getting used to it
