Yachiru, however, having burrowed all about the Kuchiki Estate in a multitude of ways, had observed Byakuya in unguarded moments.

His glasses perched on his narrow nose, as he worked his way through a pile of papers. Walking through the gardens at a pace designed to allow contemplation. Asleep on a plain futon with a wood stand pillow while unconscious tears trickled down black-lashed cheeks.

She'd crouched, barely breathing, watching him cry.

Ever afterward, under the alabaster perfection, she'd always see the cracks and find them even more beautiful.
