Crystal Tokyo Shorts: The Love Triangle of Venus
General disclaimer: I do not own any of the characters in this story.
"She did WHAT?"
Orange heels clicked on the crystal floors of the Crystal Palace.
Venus was fuming. The news Jupiter had just shared with her was not sitting well. Decisions like this were not supposed to be made without her input. Ever.
In fact, none of the senshi were consulted. However, Venus was the only one not informed of the decision after it was made. Probably with good reason, she thought. While it was not something any of them wanted, it was something she was especially against—for two good reasons.
The doors to the throne room flew open and Venus stepped in, eyes on fire. "Serenity."
The silver haired queen looked up from playing with her infant, smiling as she always did. Ignoring the tone in her friend's voice. "Ah! Venus! How are you? Small Lady just woke from her nap a short while ago. I was on my way to see you when I heard her stir."
"Oh?" She strode over. "Because I was under the impression that you may be avoiding telling me something."
Serenity cooed at her daughter, lightly tickling under her chin. "I don't know what you could be talking about, Vchan."
"Don't you 'Vchan' me. Serenity! How could you just do this without asking anyone?"
Serenity sat her daughter down into the bassinet next to her and stood. "Am I not allowed to do things on my own? Am I not the Queen of Crystal Tokyo? I don't need anyone to hold my hand when it comes to decision making. Do the four of you not trust me?"
Venus crossed her arms, still frowning.
"Besides," her tone softened and she turned back to the infant, who was fussing. Gathering her into her arms, she turned back to the angered senshi. "Endymoin agreed with me."
"Of course he would. He's tired of talking to a bunch of rocks," Venus mumbled to herself.
"I heard that."
"It's not just those four, Serenity..." she took in a deep breath, and tried her best to hide the annoyance in her voice. "You brought them all back. All of them."
"They deserve a second chance, too!"
"So, all our old old enemies are just going to be strolling down the street, and we're not supposed to worry?"
Serenity chuckled. "It's not like they'll have the powers Chaos granted them. Don't be such a worry-wart."
"Excuse me for worrying." With a roll of her eyes, she turned to leave. Before she made it to the door, Serenity's voice stopped her dead in her tracks.
"Are you more worried about Kunzite, or Danburite?"
Venus clenched her fists, mumbled something obscene under her breath, and slammed the door behind her. Serenity chuckled and looked down to her infant. "Auntie Venus doesn't like mommy's plan very much, does she?"
AN: So whatcha think? This is, indeed, the new story I had alluded to at some point while working on WIT. Sorry it took so long to get to working on it. About a week after I posted the last chapter, I found out that we are expecting our second child, and have not had the energy to do anything. x.x I'm feeling a lot better now, and decided to start before I lose my motivation.
I still don't know what I'm going to title the thing. Going to throw something up there, but it's subject to change, k?
I don't intend for this to be a traditional fic. I want it to be more of a series of one-shots, that may or may not intertwine 100%. Just looking for something less rigid. I think it'll be easier to keep updated.
Anywho, if you have any scenarios you'd like to see me throw these three into, lemme know. :) I have a couple of awkward situations in my head, but we'll see how well they are implemented.
