He never misses any of the exchanges between the two.
He knows Grimmjow is the reason why Ichigo ditches him all the time but he doesn't care because Ichigo is happy and that makes him happy."You heard what I said, watch where you goin""I have a question" Shinji said getting tired of being silent "Why are you here" he asked referring to the two boys standing behind Grimmjow, Nnoitra Gilga and Starrk Coyote.
Ishida hesitantly looked up from his injured position, and stared in horror as the espada carried his friend away. Gin, having lost patience, decides to make a move that will irrevocably change Ichigo's life and takes him to Kisuke Urarahara. Cue a week long heat, and one very powerful beta seeking the most powerful and compatible Espada or Vizard mate..mates as it ends up. In the spirit of the holidays, a secret is revealed. Grimmjow would sing to him and he would smile."Grimm" Ichigo said in a soft voice as he sat in between Grimmjow's legs as they sat under a tree"hmm" he responded"When you gone tell people about us" he felt Grimmjow tense up behind him before he took a deep breath and blew it out."Soon" he responded, he knew he sounded like a broken record but he did understand where Ichigo was coming from, you can only love in secrecy for so long."You said that the last time" he whined as he turned to face him "and the time before that and the time before that. "He closed his eyes and sighed again before speaking "Ichigo, please, just...patient with me""Grimm I am but I just can't... Just be patient with me, please" he kissed him chastely on the lips."I love you, too" he said somehow relieved by those words.He checked the time and realized he had to go home "I gotta go" he kissed Grimmjow and whispered 'I love you' before leaving to go home.When Grimmjow met Ichigo he knew he was openly gay but that didn't stop him from having sex with him the first night he saw him and then went out looking for him a week later because he couldn't get Ichigo out of his head.He was surprised when Ichigo agreed to be his boyfriend in secrecy but neither of them knew it would go on this long.Its hard to hide things from someone who knows everything."Til I believe you""Well then I guess I have to..."he was rudely knocked to the ground by the king of the school.
