Unforgettable Moments: 100 UsaxMamo Moments
#93: Genie (758 Words)
Tsukino Usagi stared lazily at the ceiling, her eyes tracing the patterns the evening shadows were grazing across it. Her boyfriend, Chiba Mamoru, glanced at the girl from over the top of his reading glasses, and he grinned at her. The girl was sprawled in the middle of his living room floor, her long blonde hair trailing all around her as she simply laid there, swinging her knees in the air as she stared upwards.
"Usako, how long are you just going to lay there?" The dark haired man drawled down at her, taking his glasses off and rubbing them clean with a small cloth.
The girl shrugged her shoulders and didn't look at him. "I don't know, Mamo-chan. My head is very full."
"Well, that's a rare thing coming from you..."
The girl whipped her blue eyes around to stare icily into his darker blue ones. He grinned sheepishly in apology. She sighed, rolled her eyes, and looked back up at the ceiling again. "Mako-chan got me thinking, that's all."
"Well..." She pushed herself up and looked at him. "She's been to America before, you know?"
"Yes? So have I; what is your point?"
Usagi cringed. She didn't like to think of the year her boyfriend had spent away from her. After the defeat of Galaxia, she still hadn't been able to persuade him from studying abroad in America. She shook her head to rid herself of the thoughts. He had come home safely and with a very good degree, and that was what had mattered.
She sighed up at him. "She said while she was there, she watched a lot of Disney movies. They're American, you know. She was a kid then."
"She watched this one... Aladdin. It had a genie in it. And it got us all thinking, cause Mako-chan asked us what we might wish for if a genie gave us three wishes."
Mamoru raised one dark eyebrow. "Where in the world did all this come from?"
Usagi shrugged. "Mako-chan's uncle... you know that's her only living relative, right? Well, he's asked her to visit him this summer in America, and she was just sharing some things with us about her childhood." Mamoru nodded. Usagi was quiet for a moment, and then her eyes sought him out. "What would you wish for, Mamo-chan?"
The man's eyes widened. "Well, I don't know."
Usagi sighed and stood up, plopping down on the sofa beside him and winding her arm through his. "That's what I said. I don't know what I would wish for."
They sat in silence for a long moment.
"I have everything I want, Usako." Mamoru said quietly. "I have you."
The girl blushed and turned her eyes toward him. "So there's nothing you would wish for?"
He laughed lightly. "I really don't know what else in the world I could ask for, Usako." He was quiet for a moment. "Except... that you would always be happy."
She smiled. "Shouldn't you say we?"
Mamoru, smiling, pressed his lips to her forehead. "Or maybe I should have said..."
She looked up. He was blushing. She poked him in the side. "What, Mamo-chan? What?"
He cleared his throat. "Well... maybe I should have said that... I would wish that our family would always be together and happy."
Usagi blinked for a moment, and then a blush began to stain over her face as well. "Oh, you mean... you mean..."
Mamoru cleared his throat and looked away. They hadn't mentioned their future daughter or her possible arrival in their lives in a long time.
Usagi giggled suddenly and leaned against him again. "Our family will always be together and happy, Mamo-chan. No matter what we ever have to go through."
He nodded, wrapping his arm around her and pulling her very close. "Agreed."
"I don't think we need a genie, then, do you?"
He shook his head, laughing. "No, Usako. We don't need one."
Mmm, well, cute, but I can tell I'm rusty... very rusty... oh well. I'll get back into the swing.
