Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] shitennou_ai Advent Drabblender 15. Sleigh rides.

A/N: Another future!fic. I like to think that, with the Shitennou around, Chibiusa wouldn’t have had such a crappy isolated childhood where she was basically raised by an electronic Luna ball. I mean, really, does that fit at all with what we know of Usagi and Mamoru’s character? Particularly Mamoru? If he did get too duty-focused, the Shitennou (even duty-obsessed Ken!), would have whomped him on the head and told him to focus a bit on his daughter.

"Again, again!" Chibiusa clapped her blue mittens together, a wide grin on her face. Ken grinned back, and began pulling the sled back up the hill on the west side of the palace grounds. "You’re supposed to make horse-y noises, Uncle Ken. This is a sleigh ride," she bossed him.

"Okay, Princess," Ken replied, using just a touch of his power to settle the ice under his feet. Dutifully, he neighed a few times, jingling the bells he had tied onto the sled rope.

"Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up lets goooooo......Door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles," she warbled. Ken smothered a laugh. Apparently she had been listening to Mina sing carols recently.

They reached the top of the small hill rather quickly, and Ken settled himself on the sled behind her. "I want to steer this time," Chibiusa added. "Please?"

Ken handed over the sled rope to her, making sure to take hold of it surreptitiously behind her. "Sure, steer away Captain," he replied, grinning again. He pushed the sled to a start, and they took off down the hill, Chibiusa shrieking with laughter. Ken got off the sled at the end, collecting the rope in anticipation of taking her up the hill again.

"Do you think Aunt Lita would make me some hot cocoa?" Chibiusa interrupted.

"Probably," Ken replied, turning to pull the sled back towards the castle. "But I’ll tell you a secret - if she’s busy, I can make a pretty mean hot chocolate myself."

"With sprinkles?" Chibiusa said seriously.

"With sprinkles," Ken confirmed, hiding another grin.

"Good!" Chibiusa replied. She gave an impatient tug to the rope, sending the bells jingling. "Mush, horse. We have to make it back to the castle before the storm!"

Ken obediently turned, neighing loudly once more.
