Nie Mingjue and Baxia have always been close.

Quincies are born behind barriers for a hundred reasons (the biggest being not "What if their fresh and tasty soul attracts a hollow" but "What if their soulmate is not the right sort". Meaning anything but another Quincy.) But Masaki's soulmate is the wrong sort (oh, so much of that), so she greets Ichigo's arrival in their own little clinic, protected by no barriers but the basic ones she put on their house, against prowling hollows.
Isshin cleans mucus out of little Ichigo's mouth, hands trembling, and looks up at her with eyes overbright with tears.
Masaki stares back, dumb with exhaustion.
Over her husband's shoulder there's a white-masked maw.
29. the one where your soulmate’s ghost haunts you when they die.
The adventures of a town-born pocket badass blacksmith guy who Does Not Like Adventures (lies) and his sweet and sunny immortal war-monster boyfriend.
