Part 28: Chibiusa and the future
Chibiusa groaned and opened her eyes. She gasped and looked around where is she? "Usagi?" she asked, her voice echoing. "S-Sailormoon?" she asked, trembling. "M-Mom?" she asked, looking around. The place was so dark. "W-Where am I?"
Then a light appeared before her, it almost blinded her and then she focused on the silhouette that was walking towards her. A sailor soldier holding a key appeared before her. "Do not worry, small lady.. you are safe." said the woman holding a big key.
"W-Where am I?" she asked, still looking left and right.
"You are in between time... the fate is trying to decide.. whether you will be born or not."
"No.. b-but I want to be born..." Chibiusa cried.
"It's up to your parents..."
"Noooooooooo!" she yelled.
Chibiusa gasped and opened her eyes. She saw her parents looking worried at her. "Mom! Dad!" she cried and hug both of them. "I thought I lost you two..." she said, sniffing. "I thought I will never be born..."
"You have to be alive... small lady.." Prince Endimyon said.
"We have to make sure you will be born, you can trust us right?" Neo-Queen Serenity said.
"Yes Mommy... Yes Daddy..."
Chibiusa smiled and closed her eyes, after that she fell asleep. A few hours of sleeping, she was awaken by people yelling and greeting someone and she remembered that the starlights are back on Earth and they will be staying at the palace. Hurriedly, She run towards the palace hallway and bumped into Sailor Uranus. "Uranus!"
"Hello there, small lady... do you want your dinner now?"
"I want starlight autograph! Come on Uranus, you have to ask for their signature for me!"
"Okay, Okay.. fine.. Lady moon"
But before Uranus could get the notebook, Jupiter appeared. "Hey Uranus, can you get King Endimyon, I think he's at the dinning room"
Uranus nodded, "Oh okay, can you get me Prince Starlight's autograph for Lady moon?" she asked Jupiter.
Jupiter kneeled in front of Chibiusa and smiled, "How about let's approach starlight together?"
"Sure!" Chibiusa giggled.
"Hey Starlight." Jupiter said, smirking.
Chibiusa blinked at the dazed prince looking somewhere far away.
"You're on earth, Starlight... not on your planet." Jupiter joked.
Chibiusa blinked and followed the prince's gaze. The prince was looking at her mother. "Up until now... prince starlight... are you still in love with my mom?" she asked,
That made the prince blinked and looked down at the small lady beside him. "Oh.. Small lady..." he bowed at her. "I am sorry..."
Chibiusa shook her head, and handed the notebook to him to sign it for her. "I admire your loyalty.. Prince starlight. I admire your love for my mother..."
Prince Starlight signed the notebook and gave it back to her, "It would be nice.. if for once... I could be with her..." he said, there was loneliness in his voice. "Say.. small lady... if there was a chance... for the past to change... are you willing... I mean... can you accept... me.. as your father?"
Chibiusa looked at him.
Inside the Music Library Studio...
Seiya tapped the table using his ball pen while trying to complete his new song. He needs to finish this song before tomorrow or else he won't have his New years date with his Odango. "Let's see.." he frowned after reading the lyrics. "This doesn't sound right."
"Hey.. If it isn't Seiya-Senpai!" Ittoki Otoya of the Starish said, while slapped his back which made Seiya grimaced in pain. "Whatcha doin?" he asked, taking a seat beside him.
"Hey Ittoki, Merry Christmas and a Happy new year to you" he said, smiling. "Where's Haruka?"
At the mention of the name Haruka, Ittoki's smile faded. "Uh.. I guess... with Tokiya?" he asked, forcing a smile.
"W-We.. broke up... Tokiya and her are.. destined to be together..." he said, looking down.
Seiya grimaced, "You know... to tell you honestly.. I don't like that word." he said, resuming looking at the words in his notebook.
"Well... sometimes, you can just.. accept the fact that she's not the one for you."
That made Seiya defensive. "You're wrong. You can fight destiny."
Ittoki shrugged, "Maybe...you can...but I can't. I've tried... but the connection is really strong and they tried to be friends for my sake...but in the end... they.." he sighed. "Anyway.. what kind of lyrics is that?" he asked, grinning. "She rolls the window down, and changed her mind?" he chuckled.
"I was supposed to write a song about.. this guy getting all crazy about a girl.. It's going to be another single for the star lights." he scratched his head. "But right now, I just can't concentrate."
"Why? Because your thoughts are full of your fiancee's face?" he asked, teasing him. Seiya blushed. "Oh yeah, congratulations from the Starish.. we saw the proposal on TV"
"Who didn't?" Seiya said, blushing furiously.
"That was bold Senpai!" he chuckled.
"Stop it. Ittoki." he said, sighing. Then he leaned on the chair, "But... I didn't regret it. To be honest, I want everyone to know that Odango is mine." he narrowed his eyes remembering Dimande and Mamoru, "Even the enemies...Even them..." he whispered.
"Never mind." Seiya resume working on the song.
"How about you write a lyrics about your fiance, that way you can think of her and think of a song too!" he said,
"Akane wants me to make a heartbreaker song." Seiya shook his head, "I don't want to dedicate a song like this to my Odango."
Ittoki smirked, "You know... just because its a love song.. that doesn't mean its not a heartbreaker song." Ittoki looked up at the ceiling. "I learned from Haruka that not all sad songs are ... depressing... one should realize that a sad song can turn into a hopeful song..."
"I don't know..." Seiya frowned.
"Anyway.. you can do that. I know you." Ittoki said, standing up. "See ya around Senpai!" he said,
"Yeah, you too." he said, then he read the lyrics and frowned again.
She was baffled at Prince Starlight's question. Because it was too sincere she couldn't just say no... and in the end, she couldn't even say yes.
"Calm down Serenity. Calm down."
Chibiusa heard her father's voice coming from one of the rooms of the palace.
"How can you expect me to calm?"
Now.. what is happening between the two of them? Chibiusa asked, she silently tiptoe towards the door and saw the two of them arguing about something.
"I know it's hard to do that, but nothing can be solve if you cry or if you bicker at me."
"Because you want to lie again Endimyon." Neo-queen Serenity said bitterly at him. "You don't want me getting all-berserk because once I calm down, you can lie to me again, How many more lies Endimyon?" she yelled.
"Sit down." he repeated, and this time his wife obeyed.
Neo-queen Serenity's knees trembled as she sank into a leather chair across him. She hugged herself, looking unhappy, almost ill. Her look made Chibiusa feel uneasy. The look in her eyes troubled her. Made her want to go there and hug her mom, but she just couldn't. She needed to know what was happening.
The King looked down on her, "Let me explain..."
She swallowed, "Go ahead..."
"It's true that Uranus... caught me and Cynthia doing something.. indecent." he stopped, and looked away. "I.. just, I just went to talk to her.. about my son and.. I was trying to know their situation..." he took a deep breath, "It was a mistake, Serenity...it was a mistake in the past and I can't do anything about it... but you my queen, my wife, you are the only one for me..." he kneeled in front of her and kissed her hands. "And knowing you, the queen with pure heart... you can understand that I only want to check my son if he's okay.. and..." he stopped and shook his head. "Serenity, I didn't mean to kiss her- I mean.. do it with her...Serenity..." he stopped and waited for her, bracing for her to blurt out that she loved him, she understands him and she'll forgive him... like he always heard before from her.
Instead, she said, "I... can't take this anymore." she licked her lips. Then a small tear came out from her right eye.
"Why?" Endimyon growled, then he stood up and looked out at the window, "Because he is here? Because your Starlight Prince is here?" he yelled.
"You know what? You know why the moment Cynthia offered herself to me, I couldn't refuse? You know why?" Endimyon smirked, "Because ever since we got married, you never let me touch you." he shook his head, "You were never a wife to me." he suddenly kneeled in front of her. "I maybe a king, but I am a man.. who has needs... and I need you.. I need my wife.."
Serenity sniffed, "Something's tells me, even if I give myself to you, I won't be enough." she shook her head.
He stared at her, shocked. "No.. you're talking about yourself... not me." The center of his chest went cold. "You love Seiya."
"At first, I didn't... but you were the one who changed, Mamoru." she looked down, "You force me to marry you."
Endimyon's hand tightened.
"I was engaged to him!" Serenity cried, "Yet you force me to marry you!" she looked at him. "And then even though, Seiya had a choice... he stepped back for Chibiusa's sake... he stepped back for the earth's sake." Her posture went straight in her chair, as she wiped her tears. "You know why I stopped loving you?"
"Why?" He clenched his jaw. Though he already know why, how many times have he heard the story before?
"Because you have changed. Though many times I've told you that I have never love anyone other than you before... you've never believe me. You went to America and you had an affair and had a son... You never thought about my feelings... you only thought about how will this benefit you. Just like what you said before, Even we were a couple in the past, in the Silver Millennium, that doesn't mean we have to be a couple forever? Yet how dare you force yourself to me! If you truly Love me! You will do anything to make me happy! Just like what Seiya did! He sacrifice himself! He-"
She rose slowly to her feet. There was a sheen of tears in her eyes. "Remind yourself, that the only reason why I put up with you is because of Chibiusa."
Chibiusa shook her head, she couldn't take this anymore. She run away from them. Her vision blurred and it kept darker. She was so confused. Then suddenly, she bump into something and then big hands reached out to her, preventing her to fall down
"Small lady? Are you okay? your majesty?"
Chibiusa wiped her tears with her free hand and saw Prince Starlight's concern face. "P-Prince Starlight..."
"Are you okay Majesty?"
"L-LEAVE ME ALONE!" Chibiusa yelled and run away from his grasp
Usagi stared at her reflection in the three-way mirror and grinned. The vintage lace veil that her fiance purchased in Paris looked as if it have been woven specifically for the crystal, diamond and porcelain flower wreath they'd found in Paris. A satisfied feeling settled in the center of her chest. She adjusted the veil slightly, "Oh my.." she blinked. Once. Twice. Now she truly looks like a bride and felt like one too, when she tried the wedding dress for her postponed wedding with Mamoru she never felt something like this. Now, she's glowing, radiant, you name it. Love, Happily-ever-after, even magic seemed to fill the room.
"Wow.. is that 'd' wedding dress?"
Usagi turned and saw her future maid of honor, the princess of Love of beauty and the actress Minako Aino standing in her doorway. "Yes. Seiya wanted to buy the wedding dress there... when we were in Paris."
Minako giggled, "Souka... He is just a romantic prince ne?" she said, putting her bag down at her bed.
"Why are you here?" Usagi asked, resuming looking at herself in the mirror.
She forced a smile, "Actually.. not to ruin your happy moment..." she swallowed, and showed the newspaper to Usagi. "Prince Dimande... just killed two people when you were in Paris..."
"What?" Usagi snatched the newspaper and read the article, "Kami-sama..b-but the news said... nothing about Dimande..."
"The kind of killing.. is kind of Dimande's way... that's what the Senshi thought."
"But.. Dimande.. wouldn't.. I mean.. he is a nice guy... when he is not controlled of the black crystal-" she force the words from her drier-than-dry mouth.
"What I think?" Minako said, looking at her seriously, "He saw the proposal.. and since he's madly in love with Serenity... which is you, he snapped?" she asked, she shook her head, "Anyway... I just want you to know that.. we are trying our best to protect you and Seiya... but you and Seiya should be careful."
Chibiusa wiped her tears and walked slowly at the garden of the palace. Then she heard voices... familiar voices. She hid herself in a big tree and saw Prince Starlight and Neo-Queen Serenity standing face to face. The Prince made few steps backward and bowed at her, and then when the Prince stood up straight, his eyes never left the queen's eyes. Chibiusa saw her mom's cheek turned pinkish and that made her bit her lower lip.
"How have you been... Neo-queen Serenity?"
"I've been.. okay..." she said warmly. "You're welcome to stay in the palace.. as long as you want..."
This time, the Prince smiled and bowed gently again, "Thank you...your highness..." he whispered.
"You've never..." she paused and looked away, "You didn't even say goodbye... before..."
"I can't.. I mean.. I don't want to break in front of you." Prince Starlight whispered. "Forgive me for being a coward... that I only.. left you a letter..." he said, bowing again. "Your daughter... grew into a beautiful princess..."
"She's... my treasure-"
"I know... that is why... I left you..." Prince Starlight looked away, suddenly tears came down from his handsome face. "I just wish... you didn't heal me..."
"Because..." Starlight turned to her, "Because.. I am living a miserable life... today...Odango..."
Serenity cried, "I can't let you die.. Seiya... I love you too much..."
"But seeing you... " he shook his head, "I'd rather die... than not holding you... hugging you... or kissing you..." Starlight sniffed.
Chibiusa just felt tears coming out of her eyes. Prince Starlight truly love her mother.
Seiya blinked as he received the key from Ikuko Tsukino. He just received a text from Odango's mother. She said it was urgent and he needed to go at the house.
"Thank you for coming Seiya, I'll be back later please look after Chibiusa for me will you?" she asked,
"Wha-" Seiya blinked and then the door closed. He glanced in silence at the sleeping Chibiusa. He knew absolutely nothing about babies or how to take care of them. What the hell was he supposed to do now? He called Usagi but she wasn't answering and then he remembered that she was supposed to be having exams now. Baby Chibiusa whimpered, "Okay.. Seiya... you can do this..." He gazed down at the tiny bundle and smiled, though her hair was pink, she was so much like Usagi. Then suddenly she begun to cry. Seiya panicked. He knelt down, his heart thundering. Had the baby started crying because of hunger? or because she was wet? should he pick her up? "Oh boy..." he said when the cries grew louder and more insistent. He lifted Baby Chibiusa into his arms, instantly noticing that the pink towel behind her felt both warm and wetter. "Okay.. that was the problem."
He held her against his neck, careful to support her head, as well as give her enough room to breath. He rocked back and forth, the way he'd seen woman do when holding a child, and to his surprise and relief her cries diminished. Reluctant to set her down, he carried her into Usagi's bed. From the closet he withdrew several diapers and with his clumsy hands he struggled to discard the wet diaper. Naked and wriggling, the baby let out a cry of protest. "Oh boy.. Chibiusa.. please cooperate with Uncle Seiya okay?" he said, Impossible as it seemed, and it looks like she understand, baby Chibiusa stopped crying. "Good girl..."
After her diaper was changed, a pair of bright red-eyes looked straightly at him. Her fingers were curled into a fist. Captivated, Seiya touched the baby's hand with his pointing finger. Then suddenly her small hands grabbed his finger and started to giggle. Then words started to form in his mind. "Would you look at her... she looks at me... she's got me thinking about her all the time, without a doubt... I figured out... I'm crazy for this girl..." he smiled, "When she hold me with her little hand... the sky fell down... when she cried, I didn't know what to do... she got me all... confused... but I am falling for this girl..."
Seiya smiled and turned at the door. "Yes Ma'am... I think.. I am falling for your daughter." he smiled.
Usagi frowned, "Falling in love like... with a woman?" she asked, acting jealous.
Seiya stood up and reached out for his Odango, "No... I just feel like.. I want her to be my daughter." he said, as he closed the gap between them. Her mouth tasted of sweet chocolate candy. Seiya's mouth felt soft and warm against her own, sending shivers of delight through her. She moaned in invitation, opening her mouth to offer him better access. At first his tongue made teasing forays into hers, then as she joined in the erotic dance, his kiss became more urgent and the moan she heard came from somewhere deep in his throat. His arms tightened around her, crushing her, against him, and his mouth devoured hers, making her light-headed with a need, the same need when they were in Paris. When the kiss was finished, he smiled at her. "How's the exam?"
"I think..." she said, huskily. "I did okay." she said, smiling. "I am sorry my mom had to leave Chibiusa in your hands"
"Well at first, I was... terrified." Seiya chuckled, "But then.. I realized, I had to know this.. I had to do this... for our future" he said, then he kissed her forehead. Then they both looked at the baby looking at them, giggling. "...it's kinda.. weird.. but I think she understands us..."
"Knowing Chibiusa?" Usagi asked, remembering the future Chibiusa coming to her present time. "She does." she said, smiling. "Anyway... about that New years... date..." she said, her hands grabbing Seiya's tie.
"Puu?" Chibiusa said, looking around at the black atmosphere. "Sailor Pluto.. are you there?"
"I am here.. Small lady..."
Chibiusa clenched her fist, "I want to see Usagi ...I want to go back to warn them..." she said, looking down.
"I don't like seeing my mother sad... and I think... I can accept Prince Starlight as my dad..." she bit her lower lip, "But it baffles me... why did Prince Starlight had to leave my mother for my sake?" she asked,
"In due time... they will know... and they will decide..."
"I know... but puu... I want to be there... I want to... tell Usagi that it is okay...for me... to make Seiya as my dad..." she wiped her tears, "As long as my mom.. is happy... that's what matters..."
Sailor Pluto looked away, she knows this will happen. And she doesn't have a choice but to bring Chibiusa back to the present time, "Small lady... you are the key... in both Chaos... and Tranquility..." she said, as she gave the Key back to Small lady. "Please be careful."
