Loved your post, Jestryn! It's great to have you back as Mamo-chan. xoxo
Usagi was sure that his voice mail would pick up, so she was startled when she heard his voice.
"Heya, Bunny," he answered. "Did you sleep well? What's on your mind?"
Usagi felt herself blush when he asked if she had slept well. She always slept better when she was in his arms. Although they hadn't consummated their relationship yet, she imagined how the first time would be. Gentle, slow, and loving. The few times she had fallen asleep in Mamoru's arms, she would awake snuggled inside the crook of his arm. She would look up at his face only to see him gazing at her with some emotion that she couldn't place.
"Um...yes, I slept well." She tried not to nervously giggle when she said this. "Did you sleep well?"
After a little bit of chit-chatting, Usagi told Mamoru about the triple date they were planning for Tuesday evening.
"I really want to meet Ami's new boyfriend, and I want to spend time with you. I hope you're not busy...if you are...It's ok. I just miss you..."
Usagi knew that she sounded needy, but her emotions were in a whirl since the kiss from Haruka. Usagi knew she should talk with Mamoru about it all, but she had a sneaking suspicion that Haruka was just harmlessly flirting with her. That woman knew how to use her sex appeal for her own good. Plus, she didn't really like Minako's boyfriend. She had only spent a little bit of time around Ryu, but he seemed very cold. And from what she had seen about Minako's and Ryu's relationship, they were getting hot and heavy...fast! Maybe a little too fast.
'I sure hope he's not pressuring her for sex,' Usagi wondered as she waited for a response from Mamoru.
"What are you doing now? The girls and I are heading to a diner that we ate at yesterday for a quick breakfast. Want to meet us there? We don't have a lot of time because we need to meet the Outer Senshi at the cafe."
"Sure. I'll meet you there, Usako."
Usagi's heart fluttered at the pet name. She loved Mamoru deeply, and she really hoped he knew that.
"Ok, see you soon!"
Usagi hung up the phone and then rushed out of her house.
"Always the last one to arrive," laughed Rei as she made room at the table for Usagi. Minako, Makoto, and Rei sat on one side of the table while Ami and Mamoru sat on the other. Usagi took the empty spot near Mamoru and smiled as he pushed a plate full of food toward her.
"I took the honor of ordering for you, Usako."
Usagi thanked him and began to eat the food as quickly as possible. Almost everyone was done eating, and she didn't want to get left behind.
Luna and Artemis covertly entered the coffee shop and found Michiru in the corner putting tables and chairs together. They made their way to her and inquired as to what the meeting was about.
"Luna, Artemis, I would like you both to meet Usagi Small Lady Serenity."
They turned around to see a young girl who looked a lot like Usagi walking toward them.
"Oh my..." Luna said, speechless.
I didn't include as much dialog for Mamoru as I usually do. I wanted you to have more leeway with him, Jestryn, since it's been a little while since you have posted as him.
The rest of the Inner Senshi can take their time with interactions at the diner. We don't have to rush to the cafe right away, but we are set-up to head over there whenever you all are ready.
Finally, Luna and Artemis are open characters, so anyone at the coffee shop can play as them and interact with them as NPCs.
