Two teal eyes stared out the window as a white haired child leaned on his arm. Rangiku came into the room and opened her mouth to ask if she could have the day off, fully prepared to be chewed out for shirking her work yet again. She stopped short upon seeing her small taicho staring out that window. Walking over she went and bent her head down, tilting her head as she did so.

Two teal eyes were focused on something outside, a bird building a next. She watched for a few minutes before going to her desk and pulling out her own brush set and getting to work. After about an hour she looked up to see the boy still staring. "Taicho..." The boy startled, but didn't respond. "You've been staring out the window for an hour or so."

"Oh..." The boy turned back to his work.

"What were you looking at?" The woman's voice was slightly sweet.

"Nothing..."

"Uh... huh." She watched as his eyes drifted back to the bird's nest, his curiosity getting the better of him.

"So that bird's nest isn't interesting." She watched as the boy's cheeks flushed up.

"Of course not. I'm not that childish!"

"I wouldn't say watching a bird building it's nest is childish." Rangiku watched as his eyes drifted back to the nest. "It's you being curious, you wanting to know more about it. You're learning by observing."

The boy paused, looking at her from the corners of his eyes. "It's creepy when you say something smart."

"Just watch your birdie please." Rangiku sighed as she went back to doing her paperwork.
