Chapter 11- Being The Bad Guy
"Usako, what brings you here?"
"Mamoru, we need to talk."
Mamoru didn't like the sound in Usagi's voice. He shut the door behind him.
"What do you need to talk about, Usako?"
Usagi's heart was pounding. He had broken up with her in the past but he never thought that she would do the same to him.
"I'm...I'm in love with someone else, Mamoru."
Mamoru turned his back to her.
"You're in love with Rei, aren't you?"
"How did you know?"
"I'm not stupid, Usagi. I saw the way you two looked at each other at the construction site. You probably would have kissed her if I was not around. That's not the only thing though. When you kissed me that day, I felt like it was forced. Also, you wanted Rei to walk you home from the fair instead of me driving you. I tried my best not to think something was going on but I knew. You are the closest to her out of all the senshi."
"I'm sorry, Mamoru, but what I feel for Rei is so much stronger. I can't explain it, but, it's like we were meant to be together, despite what you and I shared together on the Moon Kingdom."
"Usagi, the past is one thing, but what about the future? You know that we have obligations to Crystal Tokyo as the future king and queen."
Usagi tried to think of a solution. "Well, we can still rule. Being the king and queen doesn't mean that we have to be together."
"But it wouldn't be the same, Usagi. Also, what about Chibiusa? She is our future daughter. Why would you put her at risk?"
"I'm just trying to live my life, Mamoru."
"Well, I love Chibiusa. She deserves to live"
"And you don't think I do?! I love Chibiusa too, Mamoru, but I would rather have her be born out of love rather than obligation."
"Did I do something to hurt you, Usagi? Is that why you have fallen for Rei? I can change if you need me to."
This scene was very familiar to Usagi. She remembered when she was the one telling Mamoru that she would change for him. It was not like him to say something like that, which made her feel even worse.
"What? No Mamoru, you didn't do anything wrong and you don't need to change! I have just loved Rei for the longest."
"So you have felt nothing for me all of this time, Usagi?"
"Please don't think that I have never loved you. I did love you, Mamoru, but Rei is my soul mate. What I feel for her is so much stronger. I'm sorry."
Even with his back turned to her, Usagi could tell that Mamoru was in tears. His sobs became louder.
"Just go, Usagi."
"But Mamoru, I'm-"
Mamoru raised his hand. He heard enough and knew that he could not win his girlfriend back.
"Just…go. You have already made your choice. I'm sorry that I couldn't be the one you love. I should have treated you better."
Usagi dared not to speak to him again. She slumped her head down and left him like he wanted.
Rei met up with Usagi just before entering the Tsukino residence.
"How did it go?"
"I hurt him, Rei."
"Things will get better between you two."
Usagi and Rei saw Chibiusa sitting on the couch, watching television. They were slightly surprised to see her.
"Chibiusa? I thought you were with Hotaru and Setsuna."
"I was but I got home early. Hi Rei!"
"Hey Chibiusa." Rei said in a somewhat unenthusiastic tone."
"Is everything okay, Rei?"
Rei looked to Usagi for guidance on what to do. Usagi nodded and turned the t.v. off. Chibiusa needed to know.
"Hey! I was watching that!"
"Chibiusa, we need to talk."
"What is it?"
Usagi and Rei sat beside her on the couch.
"I'm not with Mamoru anymore."
"I broke up with him." Usagi held Rei's hand. "I'm in love with Rei."
"How am I going to exist?!" Chibiusa said with panic in her voice.
"Well, you're still here so that's good."
"But who knows how long that is going to last, Usagi? I could disappear at any moment! How could you and Rei do this to me?"
"We aren't trying to do anything to you, Chibiusa. We love you."
"No you don't!" Chibiusa turned to Rei. "Rei, how could you do this to me? Why would you take my mother away?"
"I'm not taking your mother away, Chibiusa. She is right here."
"She's not my mother anymore. She's your girlfriend now! It's because of you that I don't have a dad anymore! You broke my family up. I may not even have a home to go back to now." Chibiusa was reduced to tears. "I hate you, Rei and I never want to see you again!"
Chibiusa stepped on Rei's foot in a fit of rage.
"OW!" Rei shouted as she grabbed her foot.
"Chibiusa!" Usagi yelled.
"Leave me alone Usagi! I hate you too!" Chibiusa cried as she ran upstairs to her room and slammed the door.
Usagi tried to follow her, but was stopped by Rei.
"Leave her, Usagi. I deserved it."
'No you didn't, Rei."
"Yes I did. I would probably do the same if I was in her shoes. I was the one who caused all of this." Rei said while still rubbing her foot.
There was a knock on the door, forty-five minutes later. When Usagi opened the door, she saw the man whose heart she broke earlier.
Mamoru spoke solemnly. He avoided eye-contact with Rei. "Chibiusa called me. She wanted me to pick her up."
All three of them saw Chibiusa coming down stairs with a backpack. She blatantly ignored Usagi and Rei and ran towards Mamoru. Mamoru knelt before Chibiusa and gave her a hug.
"Mamoru, you still love me, right?"
"Of course I do sweetheart and I always will."
"I'm glad someone loves me."
"She will be with me for a few days, Usagi."
"Okay." Usagi said trying not to cry.
"Mamoru, can we get some ice cream?"
"Sure we can."
All of Usagi's emotions hit her at once when she closed the door. She wasn't able to hold her tears in any longer as they leaked from her eyes in full force. She immediately went into the arms of Rei. It was her only safe place.
Rei's shirt was soaked in tears. "Ssssshhhhh. It's okay Usa."
"No, it isn't, Rei. Why do I have to be the bad guy? All I want is live my life with you."
Rei gripped her tighter, rubbing her back in the process. "Usagi, you are not the bad guy for wanting to live your life. Just give them time. We will get through this, I promise."
Rei's words did not stop Usagi's tears from flowing so she just kept holding Usagi as she cried. That was all she could do.
