Prompt 0791: Should Have Never Let You Go

The words coming from Mamoru's mouth were a shock to Usagi. How dare he say that? For once in her life, she had pushed away the bad and bounced back from a loss like it was nothing, and then he came back and said things like that!

They were destined to be together. It was written in the stars. And she hated him for it. She hated both of them. She hated her past life, she hated Mamoru, she hated her new boyfriend, she hated Luna and Artemis… She should have said no to Luna in the first place.

"I'm sorry," was all the blonde managed to whisper. "I…" She what? She loved him? She wanted him out of her life forever? She… she didn't know what she wanted. But she knew she couldn't be with him. Not right now. Right now, she was finally making her own life, one outside of senshi business and past lives and magic.

"I can't be with you."

That sentence said it all. It was all true. She loved him, she hated him, she wanted him out of her life, she wanted him to ignore her and her requests and kiss her. But she needed her own life. For so long, her life was dependent on other people. As a person entered adolescence, they were supposed to find their own identity, away from their parents and anyone else. She was supposed to become her own person, but instead she was sucked into a world where for months, her life revolved around finding some princess, and after that, her life revolved around getting Mamoru back to good, and after that and after that and after that. There was always something.

This was her chance to be free.

This might be a little hard to understand without the proper background, so you might want to check out my tumblr (squirrelstone), where I keep all of my graphics and whatnot. You can also suggest a story or graphic if you want to. Thanks for reading! It's a bit after the senshi defeat Galaxia, and Mamoru broke up with Usagi, only to want her back.
