i don't own any of sailor moon, but Yume-chan and Gideon-kun are MINE!
A couple hours after my meeting with Queen Serenity and king Endymion, I went out to explore Crystal Tokyo – and in hopes to avoid Prince Gideon if he were in the palace…
There were rumors floating lightly around the city about Prince Gideon and a girl, and a few people knew who that girl was.
If those people chanced to see me dressed as one of the Queen's Senshi, they would instantly know and my face would be plastered all over any means of communication. Newspaper, pamphlets, Internet, and television. I would be so screwed.
It was the law for a Senshi to go out into public with some sort of visible sign that they were part of the Senshi group (Queen Serenity made this a law because of all the things the Senshi had done for this world in the past, they deserved their respects.). Most of us figured that meant going out into public dressed in our royal scout uniforms – A tight fuku top and whatever lower half of the uniform we choose. We usually have to wear a robe or a cape of our representing color.
But the law never said we were forced to dress like that particularly.
So I went out dressed in a silver spaghetti strap top and a very low cut, three-quarter length sleeve, light blue button-down sweater. I pulled back my purplish blue hair toward the back of my head on either side.
All of these were my representing colors, so I wasn't breaking the law! P
Anywho, the city was beautiful. Nature at it's peak lived in the parks; technology sprouted like a fountain within the city's metro system; children, teenagers, and adults alike teemed with life at Crystal Tokyo. It was amazing. Far more exiting and beautiful than Neptune's mediocre malls and metro system.
I walked along Tokyo's crystalline sidewalks lined with parked cars, children playing, people haggling for prices at the many stores, and various multicolored items sold outside of the small stores.
There was, squeezed in between an antique store and a bookstore, an ATM machine. To tell the truth, I was broke. I didn't think that I would find time and incentive to go outside the palace walls. I swiped my I.D. card and my face, in all its Neptune nobility, flickered onto the screen with a beep.
Just then, I heard some whispering behind me and a stifled gasp. I turned my head slightly and peeked out the corner of my eye to the two schoolgirls walking past casting a glance my way.
I turned back to the ATM machine.
Maybe they would think that it was just their imagination. It hit me full blow how badly it sucked to have unique purple-blue hair.
The money dropped out of the machine with a clang. Quickly, I retrieved the money and shoved it into my pocket - dropping my henshin stick n the process. I dropped down to my knees and swiftly picked it up and stuffed it back into my pocket. Casting a quick glance around my surroundings, stood back up, and strode into the nearest store to evade the stares of the onlookers standing by the sidewalks.
The store I happened stumble into was the cute little antique store. I dusted myselft off regally and started walking among the rows of shelves of things. Aisles upon aisles I walked through – till I stopped dead in my tracks.
There, on the shelf behind mine, were the two girls that I had seen earlier.
At that instant, I suddenly found interest in the old picture album in front of me. The girls chatted away idly, seeming to forget about my incident at the ATM machine. I opened the old photo album without really looking at the pictures and hid my face behind it all the while walking away slowly towards the door.
"I know! Whoever that girl is, she's really lucky to get a guy like him…"
I ran for it.
I ran and ran, not stopping until I was a mile away..
I collapsed on a bench under one of the budding sakura trees. The breeze gently lifted my hair lightly and evaporated my sweat. I breathed in deeply to calm my beating heart. My breathing slowed, but my heart did not cease…
…They knew who I was…
…The rumors would be full blown now…
I was already planning my departure from Earth when—
"Konnichi wa miss" I held back a gasp and replied traditionally, "Konnichi wa, police officer"
Oh, Kami-sama, they were going to take me back to the palace…back to the Queen and all the life of nobility…
….back to Gideon…
One of the officers stared at me for the longest time, staring into my face, searching my eyes for some kind of truth…
What truth was he looking for? Did my eyes betray who I was—or something else altogether? But, if they were supposed to be taking me back, why was he looking at me like he had never seen me in his life?
Unless…they weren't taking me back?
His partner nudged him in the shoulder and said to him-'ask her about Prince Gideon!' The officer snapped his head out of 'staring-mode' and back to his main objective.
His main objective?
What was his main objective? Something to do with Prince Gideon, that I knew. But did it involve Hogoshino Yume?
"Sumimasen, but have you heard of Prince Gideon?"
I decided to play the foreigner act.
"Gomen ne, officer but I haven't. I live on Charon. I just came to visit with my family to experience the tales of Earth for myself…your planet is truly beautiful. I envy you, sirs"
"Alright then, Arigato miss." And they started to walk away. The officer that was staring at me so, stopped suddenly and spun around. He pulled out a slip of paper, or a photograph or something from his pocket and looked back from it to me.
My heart rate started to go up once again.
The officer turned around to his partner to tell him something, but by that time, I was already out of the park.
japanese translations: Arigato-if you don't know this, you are a horrible anime fan.
-Gomen ne- i'm sorry
-Sumimasen-I am sorry (i've heard that gomen ne and sumimasen are those english translations but i really am unsure. if anyone would read this fanfic, could you tell me? thx!)
-Kami-sama - the japanese way of saying 'omg'
