Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] shitennou_ai Advent Drabblender 10. Moonrise.

Usagi stepped out on the patio, taking a moment to slip away from the tension in the room. The moon was full, hanging low in the sky, and she sighed. She had been so happy, so excited for Mamoru when he had found his Shitennou. He would call home, that first year of college, and even though he never put it in words, Usagi knew he finally felt as if he belonged. He was friendly with the girls, of course - he and Makoto were particularly close - but the Senshi would always be Usagi’s friends first.

The Shitennou had changed that.

She had been so happy to meet them. They were different than she had remembered, but there were glimmers of the men they had been and the relationship they had shared with Endymion. And not all the changes were bad -

"Hiding?"

Usagi turned, train of thought interrupted. Nico sat in a beat up lawn chair off in the corner, smoking a cigarette. Usagi wrinkled her nose slightly at that, and he grinned at her, white teeth gleaming in the dim light. He stubbed out the cigarette. “Maybe, a little,” she confided.

"Well, I haven’t seen any blood yet, so we may all make it out alive," Nico said, giving her a more reassuring smile.

Usagi flopped down into the other chair, pushing her lip out in a slight pout. "I just want everyone to be happy."

Nico gave a low laugh. "You can’t make people be happy, Princess."

Usagi was silent for a moment, scuffing her foot across the concrete floor. "Are you guys made at me?" she asked, voice tiny.

Nico shook his head. "No. And who could stay mad at you, if we were? You meant well," he reassured her. "It might have been better to tell people first, rather than making it a big surprise, but that’s nothing to get angry over."

"I think the girls are mad at me," Usagi mumbled.

"You might be surprised. Lita’s not," Nico commented.

Usagi perked up at that, giving a little clap to her hands. "You talked to her?" she asked.

Nico laughed. "Easy, tiger. Yes, we talked for a moment. I don’t know about any of the other Senshi, but Lita seems fine. She’s a good friend to you," he added after a moment.

Usagi nodded emphatically. "They all are. I just wish they could see-"

"They will," Nico said.
