AN: This took me a while to know what to write about. The song is called "Dragonfly", by Edguy.


24 – Dragonfly

I love her. I have loved for ages now. I have even asked her out on a date once, but my blondie told me she couldn't date, that her father didn't allow her to. I understood him, she was only 14 and there I was, a 20 year-old man. So I settled being her frenemy. We even had pet names for each other... "Odango Atama" and "Mamoru Baka". I loved it and I know Usako loved it too.

However, time had passed and now she was a beautiful 17 year-old lady. Of course, I had aged as well, but now I was 23 years old, on the verge of graduating from Medicine. I think that it would be more presentable to her father. Especially considering that i also didn't have family and he may not respond to it very well. Well, at least I could provide for his daughter.

That day in particular, I met with Rei and Minako, her friends, at the café La Lune. It wasn't our regular spot and the girls were on to that. But I had made up my mind and I was going to ask her to date me again. So, they helped me with ideas; Minako's being the one that appealed to me the most. You see, I don't usually mention this, but I'm a fairly good singer. And she suggested a serenade.

So, you can imagine where I'm standing, right? In front of her balcony. I don't care if I might wake her family up, as long as she sees me here singing this to her. I have some rocks in my hands and I'll throw these in her window.


I'm in my room, pajamas put on, petting my cat. Suddenly I hear this noise. Once, twice... I decide to look, so I open the balcony door.

"What are you doing, you Baka? Do you want my father to wake up and shoot you with his shotgun?" I swear that boy is crazy. I love him, though.

"I need you. I want you. I love you. Odango, you're the one for me. And I don't care if your father sees me, because I'm the one you're gonna marry." I chuckle at this, he knows me so well. Then I see he has a guitar and I worry he will wake up my father for real.


The first notes were played by Mamoru and Usagi couldn't hide her happiness and her worries. Of course, her father was by the door and her mother came to her room with her brother to see the commotion. That was when Mamoru started singing.

Is it really the treasure of gold

Or the dance on the rainbow itself

Bound to a track

Painting over the cracks

In his dreams they'd put up on the shelf

Little wind up soldier

With a ball and chain

Got destinations engraved on your mind

Now you don't care as long

As you don't make it there

You wanna fly but not arise

Calling you, calling you

You are the one to hear them

Calling you, calling you

Calling you, calling you

And your daddy don't approve

And when no-one's awake anymore

He paints a picture of a strange looking fly

From a distant world

You light and lo and behold

It's coming alive

Usagi was speechless, and tears of happiness were forming on her eyes. Ikuko couldn't believe on how lucky her daughter was. Kenji, on the other hand, went for his gun.

Calling you, calling you

You always hear them speak

Derring do, derring do

Calling you, calling you

From a distant burning star

You wanna fly, so you drag on flies

Drag on dragonflies

From a suffocating room, on a dragonfly

You're riding high when you nasalize

What you pulverize

Make your day and dream away on a dragonfly

Mayday mayday

I ain't fond of smoking

The buzzer known in dire straits

Selfless without intention

Too late to intermediate

Smoking kills

Calling you, calling you

You are the one two three four

Calling you, calling you

Calling you, calling you

And your daddy don't approve

You wanna fly, so you drag on flies

Drag on dragonflies

From a suffocating room, on a dragonfly

You're riding high when you nasalize

What you pulverize

Make your day and dream away on a dragonfly

We're getting high on a dragonfly

Suddenly, Mamoru saw the front door opening and he knew what it was going on. Kenji was there, gun in hand. The man got his guitar and ran away upon hearing "I love you too, Mamo-chan!" in the background. He was the happiest man alive.
