Hi! This is the sequel to Demando's Fury. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I don't own any of the characters, except for a few that I might invent later. They belong to the wonderful Naoko Takeuchi, who created Sailor Moon.

Usagi sat up in bed and looked at the clock. It was the middle of the night and she had just awoken from a horrifying dream. She had dreamt that Mamoru had gotten a divorce with Setsuna and was coming to take her away from Demando.

"Nah," she thought. "The was a time when I had hoped that Mamoru would divorce Setsuna, or break the engagement, but I adjusted to that and was able to figure out my true feelings for Demando."

She fell back asleep, and didn't think of the dream again.

***

When Usagi awoke, the sun was shining brightly. She threw on her robe over her nightgown and slipped her feet into her slippers. She hurried down the stairs, for she smelled breakfast cooking, and Usagi never liked to miss a meal.

Demando saw Usagi coming down the stairs and stopped to wait for her. He laughed as he saw Usagi lose one of her fluffy pink slippers on the stairs and turned around to look out the window. Snow was falling.

"About time," he thought. "Christmas is only two days away."

Usagi stepped off the last stair into Demando's arms.

"Morning," she said, and kissed him fully and passionately. He scooped her up in his arms and carried her to the dining room, where he gently set her down in a chair, before taking his seat across from her.

A servant hurried in and set down two heaping platters of eggs, bacon, sausage, cinnamon rolls, and two glasses of orange juice. Usagi grabbed her plate and dug her fork into the eggs, stopping every so often to drink some orange juice.

"Slow down," laughed Demando.

"But I can't," said Usagi with her mouth full.

"Usagi," said Demando in a serious tone. Usagi knew this tone and stopped eating to listen.

"Yes?" she said, after she had swallowed her food.

"You know that I love you with all my heart, and I only want what's best for you, right?" he asked, clearly trying to avoid the subject.

"Yes. Demando, just get on with it," she giggled.

"Usagi, I have arranged for a governess to come and educate you in what you'll need to know to become Queen of Nemesis, and eventually raise children that will become the rulers of this planet, long after we're gone."

"Oh, so I'm suddenly too immature for you?" snapped Usagi.

"Usako," he said, trying to reason with her. "You're not, but you're also not Neo Queen Serenity, or even Princess Serenity for that matter. Tell me, did you have a governess on the Moon when you were growing up there?"

"No." replied Usagi, irritably.

"You did too, Usagi," said Luna, from her place under the table.

Usagi got up and went into the kitchen and came back with a dish of cat food for Luna.

"Thanks, I was beginning to think that you'd forgotten about me," said Luna, greedily eating up the dish of food.

"I almost did," admitted Usagi.

"Usako," Demando tried again. "I only want what's best for you and our kingdom."

"Fine, I'll put up with a governess. I was beginning to like life without school. Are we still going to visit the senshi and my family for Christmas?" she asked.

"Of course. I have servants packing for us now," he replied and added, "We also need to get Saffir while we're there."

"Why is he on Earth?" she asked, confused.

"Remember? He's been dating your friend Ami for the last two months. He told me that he plans on proposing tomorrow."

"YOU NEVER TOLD ME THAT!" yelled Usagi. "WHY AM I ALWAYS THE LAST PERSON TO KNOW THESE THINGS?"

"He told you," said Luna, calmly. "You were just falling asleep over your meal when he did."

"Shut up, Luna. You know that I hate it when you're right. When are we leaving?" she asked.

"In about two hours."

"TWO HOURS!" screeched Usagi. "I can't be ready in two hours."

"Yes you can," Demando said calmly. "All you need to do is take a quick shower and put on a fresh gown. That's it. Not too hard, is it?"

"Demando! This isn't just any visit. Our wedding is in two weeks. My friends are convinced that I'm coming home for good, not for a visit. In the three days that we are there, I have to convince them that I am on Nemesis to stay, that I am happy here." She got up, kissed Demando on the cheek, and hurried off to her room to dress.

Two hours later, Usagi reappeared in the Time/Space Portal room, ready and waiting to teleport. She was dressed in an all red gown with three-quarter-length sleeves that had white ruffles on them. She wore a little sprig of holly pinned to her dress and on her head sat a magnificent golden tiara, right in between her two buns.

Demando pulled her close and the two teleported to Usagi's house. Their luggage soon followed.

They arrived on the front porch of the Tsukino home. Usagi rang the doorbell, stepped back and eagerly waited, like a child on Christmas morning. The door swung open, revealing Ikuko and Chibiusa.

"Mom!" cried Usagi, running into her mother's arms. Behind them, her father appeared.

"So, he said, squeezing past Ikuko and Usagi, "You must be Demando. I must say that I'm not happy with you kidnapping my daughter—"

"Sir, I apologize most profusely for that—I have been in love with Usagi from the moment I saw her—"

"You seem to be a lot brighter than her last boyfriend," commented Kenji.

"Dad! I was fifteen."

"I know, pumpkin," said Kenji, going over to hug Usagi.

"I'm so glad to be home," sighed Usagi, as she stretched out on her bed. "Demando, we're going out for dinner tonight, and you'll never guess where we're going."

"McDonalds," he said, sarcastically.

"Yep!" she exclaimed. "Just kidding. We're going out to the Rainforest Café. The food is awesome and they have all these sounds and stuff that go off every so often."

"It sounds really neat."

"Wait! I have an idea." Usagi rushed to the door and threw it open. "Mom!" she yelled over the banister.

"Yes, Usagi?"

"Can I take Demando shopping?"

"Sure, why not? But good luck, it is the day before Christmas Eve, you know."

"Yeah I know." Usagi ran back to her room and grabbed her coat. "Come on," she said to Demando, pulling him out the door behind her.

She got in the car and put in the keys.

"Usagi?" asked Demando. "You do know how to drive, right?"

"Sure," she said. "Piece of cake. You taught me and got me my driver's license last year, remember?"

"Yeah, but you haven't driven since then."

"What's the difference?" she asked, as she pulled out of the driveway.

"Okay…Usagi, maybe we should just call a cab."

"With the Black Moon symbol on your forehead, you'd be mistaken for some criminal. We also have to pick up some skin-toned makeup to cover it up."

"Why?"

"Because, this is Earth. People are scared of things that they call weird on people's heads."

"Usagi! Watch out!" yelled Demando as Usagi just barely missed hitting a mailbox. "Pull over," he commanded.

"Why?"

"I'm going to drive. Pull over."

He got out and walked around and opened her door. She got out and they changed seats.

"Now how do we get to this mall?" he asked.

"Go left up here," she said, and proceeded to give him directions.

AN: So, what do you think so far? Good, Bad? Please Review, and don't expect an update until at least Sunday! Bye for now!
