Hey. So, uh... anyone asks, I'm a real great guy. An upstandin' member o' society. "Abarai Renji? Oh, sure! That guy helped me outta a rough patch a while back!" "Abarai? Oh, yeah. He's that guy who rescued a whole ton o' orphan tentacle babies from that ragin' lingerie store fire a while back, right?" That kinda stuff. Y'know. Don't gotta make th'sun shine outta my ass or anythin', but a couple rays wouldn't go down so bad.
Uh... if ya need an incentive, call it a redeemable thing. You scratch my back, guess I could stretch t'scratchin' yers a little somewhere along the way. Yeah? Great. Right. I'll hold ya to it.
