Ran for Your Life II

The small red headed girl pulled her knees to her chest as she found a quiet place that she felt the silver haired demon child would not be able to find her. She leaned forward and looked at her feet wishing she could go home, back to Soul Society where she felt she belonged. She was beginning to fall asleep when a familiar face popped in front of her, startling her.

"There you are." The voice spoke up, a smile on his face. His eyes were narrowed and she thought at first she would want to run from him, but for some reason the smile didn't creep her out. "I've been looking all over for you."

"Why?" The girl asked the question, frowning as she hadn't gotten used to his strange behavior even though it had been a couple of months. She didn't like how he became attached to her and stuck to her like glue. Having hidden from him, he had managed to find her whenever she tried hiding from him.

"My name is Silbern. Father says your name is Rangiku. That is a pretty name." The boy climbed into small storage room she had found and sat in front of her. 'Do you want to be friends?"

"Why don't you go and be friends with the others like you." The girl muttered into the hem of her kimono."

"There aren't others like me. Schwarz plays with me, but we are not alike despite being twins." The man stated.

"I mean, why don't you go and play with the other Vandenreich children. I'm a shinigami, not a Vandenreich." The girl glared at the boy, becoming rather amused when he suddenly frowned.

"They don't like me. They never have. That's why I only play with Schwarz. I want to be friends with you though." The boy continued to press the matter.

"Why? You think killing people is a game! That's..." The girl paused, closing her eyes.

"I'm not going to do it anymore even though father is mad at me." The boy suddenly turned to look at the wall, pulling his own legs up to his chest. "I didn't know they couldn't come back."

"But you hurt people. You enjoy hurting others. Nobody likes being hurt." The female frowned at him.

"I do." Silbern didn't notice the horrified look on his face. "When I get hurt I can feel emotions really easily. I'm more likely to express my feelings on my face or be able to describe them."

"Your not supposed to be able to describe feelings!" The girl shook her head in disbelief.

"Why not? A feeling is a physical thing, so one should be able to describe it." The retort caused the girl to bury her head in her arms in order to try and ignore the strange child. However, he continued to speak up. "What does a chrysanthemum look like?"

"Excuse me?"

"Your name. Fuhrer says your first name means a chrysanthemum riot. Mutti says that a chrysanthemum is a type of flower. The only flowers I've seen are the Sakura flowers that fuhrer brings home for mutti on her birthday. That's because mother's given name is the cherry blossom."
