“Your request was approved.”

Orihime rushed forward, hands extended to receive whatever he had to offer. Ulquiorra placed five candles in her hands. Confused, she asked, “What is this? I only need two.”

“Aizen decided that it was best to just give you five. After all, none of us know what will happen to the others.”

She thought on it for a moment and, hesitantly, gave the three extra candles back to Ulquiorra. “I won’t be needing these. I still have faith.”

“Suit yourself.” As she turned away from him, she could hear him say, “Just don’t expect to have access to them when the inevitable happens.”
