He groaned. “Do we have to do it today?”
“I know! But not in Rezembool!” She looked around. I’m sure there’s somewhere to rest here! We can ask Sakura!”
He frowned. "Yes."
He nodded. "Then let's go find her..."
“Fine…” he sighed, rather exasperated.
“Easy!” She stepped away from him and cupped her hands around her mouth. “SAKURA!!!!”
He sighed, already feeling almost the same.
He had covered his ears, and was glad that he had. "Wow..."
He let Ed drag him along some more before stopping. “Where are we going?”
A loud crash came from some tress up ahead, making Na blink. “Wow~ She was close!”
"Going to find something for you to do to keep you from just being lazy."
He laughed nervously. "Yeah..."
“In this world? Hah, that’ll be a miracle.”
Sakura stood up, rubbing her head. “Ow… That really hurt…” Na blinked, then went completely red. “S-S-S-S-She was watching?!”
He frowned. "Damn..."
He turned red as well. "A-ah..."
“But go ahead. I’m not stopping ya~”
Sakura noticed their expressions and gulped. “Ehehehe… S-Sorry… I was curious….”
"Heh, that's a change."
“Well, it’s nice to see you so enthusiastic about something that won’t involve yourself getting killed.”
Na hid behind Ichigo, peeking at Sakura. “N-Not nice!” Sakura smiled nervously. “Sorry…”
He grinned nervously. "...Yeah."
He sighed. "Is there some place she can rest?"
“So… got something in mind?”
“Yeah! We have an inn!” she chirped, bouncing a little ahead. “You’ll love it there!”
"We could always spar, or something."
He nodded and followed her. "...Alright."
“Spar? Wow, we haven’t done that in a really long time…”
Na hung onto Ichigo as they walked. Sakura turned a corner and a door could be heard creaking open. “Don’t mind the dust. Been a while since this place has seen guests.”
He nodded. "Yeah. That's why I suggested it."
Ichigo nodded. "Yeah, I can tell..."
“Right. Hand to hand, I suppose.”
Na let go of Ichigo and sneezed violently. Sakura blinked. “Wow… someone’s allergic…”
He looked around. "Can we clean this place up a bit?"
He shrugged off his jacket, throwing it off to the side. “Alright. Come and get me?”
Sakura nodded and headed for a small closet. Na rubbed her nose, squealing in distress. “Uhh… Can’t breathe…”
He took off is own coat. "Right..." he bent down low then charged.
He grinned nervously. "We're gonna take care of that."
He sidestepped the charge, hands now in his pockets. “Too slow.”
Coming back with an armload of cleaning supplies, Sakura dropped them on the floor. “There! Everything I could find!” She then started throwing open the windows.
He stepped back. "...Hm." He aimed a kicked right at his stomach.
Ichigo blinked but picked up a duster and started to dust the places where it was the dirtiest.
Catching the foot, he flipped Ed onto his back. “Predictable.”
Na ran out of the inn and proceeded to cough up her lungs. Sakura looked worried. “I feel really bad for her…” she murmured, broom in hand.
[not literally, mind you]
He gritted his teeth and got up. "...Damnit."
Ichigo nodded. "We should hurry and finish the cleaning..." He said, looking even more worried.
“Cursing seems to be a must.”
Sakura nodded, and started sweeping the floors rather quickly. This kicked up even more dust, making her sneeze. “….ok…. bad idea…”
"Ha ha..." he shook his head and landed a punch in his stomach.
It made Ichigo sneeze and cough. "N-not that quick!"
It didn’t seem to fade him much. He grabbed Edward by the back of his pants, picked him and, and flipped him over. “You’ve lost weight…”
“Sorry!” she cried, sweeping slower now. “Guess I got overexcited…”
He groaned. "...yeah." He got up and jumped back.
He nodded. "Just... don't do it again."
He started rolling up his sleeve. He stopped, seeing his tattoo showing, and decided to roll the sleeve down again.
“I won’t!” She ran into a room and threw the covers off the bed. “Time for a turnover!”
Ed frowned but shook it off. He charged again, throwing a kick at him.
He finished sweeping, coughing as the covers kick up a bit more dust.
Roy caught the leg again and threw him once more. He smiled at Edward, putting his hands in his pocket. “Something wrong?”
Sakura finished dusting the room out and Na came in, looking a little worse for wear. She smiled at them both, her jacket wrapped around her head to keep from inhaling the dust. “S-Sorry…”
"N-no, not at all..." he said in a slightly hoarse voice as he got up.
Ichigo laughed nervously. "It's alright... Not your fault."
“Good. Now, quit holding back.”
Sakura nodded. “Hai. Everyone is allergic to something. Your allergy just happens to be dust… which there is a lot of in this place!”
