At first... Mitsuki didn't really plan on doing anything today. Probably finish a few paintings that her parents friends wanted her to buy. Then check up on Ai, Momoka, and Noa for the day... Ever since she found out that she was Sailor Pluto she found it better to keep an eye on the three other Outer Senshi. Well.. Mostly just Momoka and Noa.
Ai was probably the one that Mitsuki considered a friend... A real friend or something like that. Ai was probably the most down to earth other than her. Plus, she was the one that Mitsuki had contact with the most. Mostly because, the Outer Senshi were altogether in this. So Ai and Mitsuki talked about some of their problems while Mitsuki relaxed at the Cafe that Ai worked at. It was peaceful and nice for her.
Then there was Momoka, which was literally a celebrity or as much as a Celebrity that an Idol can get. Whenever they hung out with Momoka they'd have people stare or if it was in certain areas, then they would have to deal with her bodyguard. Not only that but Momoka was a little pervert.. To Ai. When it came to everyone else she was just normal but then there was the way she was with Ai, which was a complete and total perve. But, Momoka did show Mitsuki around when she first came to Japan. They were neighbors so Mitsuki had no complaints towards the girl.
Now Noa. Noa was a pain in the a**. She was spoiled and self-centered. When Momoka introduced Mitsuki to her the first thing that came to mind was slapping her in the face, with a brick. It was just so damn annoying seeing her prance around thinking that she was the complete ruler of the world. Even if it's been a year, Mitsuki still thought like that, but now she stuck around Noa more often, if not to annoy her since Noa didn't like Mitsuki either, then to make sure the idiot didn't get herself into something she couldn't handle.
Today, Momoka had the day off after school so she wanted to hang out with them. Ai offered to pick up the Idol from school. Leaving Noa and Mitsuki to find their own way to the Shinjuku train station. "Oh.. Noa's here..." Mitsuki honestly thought that she was going to be the first one there since she got there pretty early. "Hey Honeybee, you here by yourself?" Despite Mitsuki's overall indifferent attitude, she was quite fond of nicknames. Nao's was Honeybee whether she liked it or not.
"Yay, school is over." Momoka said as the bell rang. Today was Saturday, one of the rare Saturdays where they had school. Momoka went to a special school for Celebrities and Idols. It was nothing special and it looked like nothing special which was the point, but Momoka was honestly excited for today. It was one of her rare days off and even though Momoka and her famous little a** couldn't really have a normal day, any day that she could hang out with her friends was a good day to her. As she got up and went to the bathroom to change she took the time to check her cell phone...
"Ai-chan is picking me up?" Momoka's head tilted as she put on her clothing for the afternoon. Momoka didn't expect Ai to do something like that. Though... Momoka honestly thought that Ai and herself were getting closer in a way.. Yes, they still fought and disagreed a lot but... Momoka really liked Ai and she liked the way that Ai's boobies felt.... If she had to be honest... Momoka was attached to Ai, she was the first other Senshi that she met and it was purely coincidental. So, as you can imagine, Momoka was happy when she heard that Ai was coming to pick her up for the play date that she set up with the four of them. Since break days were hard for Momoka to find, she liked to take full advantage of them.
With Noa, Momoka wasn't too sure what to think about her. Noa was childish, completely childish. Not only that, Momoka was almost sure that Noa wanted her.. In that way that Momoka wanted Ai but Momoka wasn't attracted to girls like that, Noa wasn't ugly by any means but Momoka just saw Noa as a friend or a younger sister despite Noa being older than her and wanting to be like that with her.
Mitsuki was Momoka's neighbor in Harajuku and was the last to join their little Senshi grouping. She was like the big sister to the group while Momoka was the baby being the youngest. Thankfully, they were all around the same age. Specifically with Ai, Noa, and Mitsuki being 19 and Momoka being 18. Their relationship was simply neutral otherwise, Momoka had no complaints.
"I guess I'll just wait then..." Momoka said leaning against the wall that surrounded the school waiting for Ai to come by as she texted to her group mates.
Noa had never asked for a hard life, not at all, and as the fates would have it; she didn't have one. Not really, the hardest part was being a Salior Senshi but that was rather dull in comparison to average human life. Not a lot happened in the town the outer senshi lived in, so nothing really ever needed to be saved, give or take a cat or two out of a tree. No it was rather dull for the princess. One would think that after you are stolen from your kingdom and thrown onto Earth you'd have a hard time coming into normalcy, but that wasn't the case. She was adopted right away by two very wealthy people who showered her with gifts, giving her the princess life anyway. Noa always wore the hippest clothes and had access to all of the coolest music, she was the dream friend everyone wanted to have, but no one would take. The girl didn't mind it too much, she was used to people just not being as good as her.
The day had seemed to pass by rather quickly, especially since the small girl didn't bother herself with normal things such as school. She rather had just spent the day sleeping and deciding on what to wear, normal princess things. She hadn't even thought of leaving the house until Ai sent her a rather nasty text message telling her to get her a** up and ready to move for the day because they had plans. Not that she particularly cared, the Sailor Senshi were all very independent women which irritated Noa. She hated not being able to have control, specifically over a bunch of cute girls. The blonde would never understand how they could so easily resist her charm, after all she was a very good looking woman. She had men and women from several different countries beg her for it, and yet none of the Senshi would show any sign of interest, just another reason for her to stick around.
The girl let out an over drawn sigh as she skipped along the side walk. She could have had one of her parent's servants drive her in a car but she had decided a walk would be a lot more refreshing. Plus she wanted to seem as if she hadn't been lumping around all day. The blonde girl turned slightly as she heard a quiet voice, Mitsuki's, with an attached nickname. A roll of the eyes and frown covered Noa's facial expression as she walked towards Mitsuki. "Honey Bee is a dumb nickname you know." she said rather matter-o-factually as she placed her hands on her hips. "Call me something cute like Princess Peach." Suddenly the girl smiled, a sweet smile that only meant she wanted something. She twirled her hair with her index finger and rocked back and forth on her heals. "Mitsuki, I'm feeling insecure. Tell me I'm pretty." she demanded rather loudly, causing several people passing by stopped to gawk. She knew that everyone would look at her awkwardly if the girl wouldn't admit to it, after all she had to blind not to see it.
Ai’s day had started with a rather rough start. Her alarm blaring in her ear at six a.m., reminding her that work was only thirty minutes away. Ai wasn’t a very special, just a girl who had a bad start in life, period. She wasn’t famous, she wasn’t rich, she wasn’t really good at much, except for video games and beating the living hell out of some kid that happened to annoy her. She had given up on highschool and all of that education nonsense at a very young age. She had known she wouldn’t make much out of herself and proved that by working at a Coffee Bistro every day. Though things could have been a lot worse, she could have been living on the streets again just barely making it by. Her gang stealing money, supplying the city with drugs while she simply mooched off of the profits, occasionally getting into fights with rival gangs and always winning; Ai never lost a fight, fist or otherwise.
But those days were past her now that she knew her true identity. She was a Sailor Senshi, a guardian of earth; something that came off rather ironic in the eyes of her fellow senshi. She was a delinquent while every other single one of them had some sort of talent. Whether it is music, painting, or the luck of the universe letting her have a billion bones to spare; she was not part of that crowd. She was brute, plain as day, no palely flowers or any of that jazz for her. She rarely wore dresses, most of the time she would wear raggedy pants and maybe a shirt if she was lucky. Though that had changed too, their ‘leader’ or the girl who thought she was the leader, Noa, had a few dollars to spend and decided to buy Ai a whole new wardrobe; naturally the pervert made sure it consisted of almost all short skirts and lacey underwear in hopes to see it, not that Ai had any shame. She wore the clothes with pride, hell; it was free why wouldn’t she? It wasn’t really her style and she hated the way people looked at her but she got over it pretty fast.
Ai wasn’t much of a clothes person, so as soon as she got off of work she stripped down out of her uniform and put on some random a** thing that was in her closet. She hoped it smelt alright but didn’t bother to notice if it didn’t. Her apartment building happened to be right next to her place of employment so it saved the trip on gas everyday considering her motorcycle was a monster about it. She ran a hand through her hair as she decided ed to walk to Momoka’s school rather than drive, she figured the other girl could use some fresh air, plus she was pretty sure the other girl wasn’t fond of the ride anyway. As she walked up to the school she felt more than awkward, she could feel the stares of teenage girls on her, questioning her looks and judging her based on name and all those other things high schoolers did to tear kids down.
As Ai approached Momoka she tried to seem as casual as possible. ”Are you ready?” she asked as she scanned the school yard; it was beyond pretty, go figure. She turned around and headed back towards her apartment buildings. ”If you’re coming, hurry up. We’ve got some time to kill before Mitsuki and it show up. And I’d like to clean up the place a bit and have some coffee ready.”
"Ai-chan." Momoka sang out when she saw the other girl. She could tell from just looking at the girl that she felt awkward. Momoka knew Ai pretty well despite their verbal bouts. "Of course I'm ready.." Why would she be standing there if she weren't ready. "Did you just call Shizumi-san 'it'?" It made her wonder what Ai called her when she wasn't around. Mitsuki was Mitsuki, Nao was It, what was Momoka? That was what probably what Momoka wanted to know anyway. What was she to this person? Probably nothing more than a pervert right?
"I thought you didn't like these kinds of clothes, Ai-chan. It looks more like my style than yours..." As in the clothes controversy: Momokai Argument starter number 1. . . Or that's what Mitsuki called it. "You look nice, though, I would've rather have been the one to buy you new clothes rather than Shizumi-san. She probably was a complete pervert about the whole thing.." She commented looking back at some of the girls that were whispering and giving them a look that shut them up completely. Though, Momoka was being truthful about that, as perverted as Momoka was she wouldn't have gone as far as to by clothing for Ai with the intentions of being a pervert. Momoka actually cared about the other Senshi. Especially Ai, arguing with Ai was one of the few most real interactions that she's had with someone. Considering her career of choice it was nice to be herself around people.
"Will you hold my hand today, Ai?" Yes, Momoka was normally completely all over the other girl in her perversion. Ai was... So... Shy deep down.. Or once you got her alone... Though Momoka never went too far... A few touches here and there, some groping, and maybe a few kisses. But it should be noted that Momoka was more likely to do it when others were around, especially, Noa. Momoka probably resisted the spoiled girl's charm the most. Ai and Mitsuki had weak moments but Momoka knew what she wanted and so she came up with a way to mark her territory around Noa.
Mitsuki rolled her own eyes when Noa started complaining about her nickname, it was like this every time she saw her. They both knew that Mitsuki wasn't going to change the nickname so it was just a mute point. "Well, if you didn't bleach your hair you would've gotten something more normal." Mitsuki said in a condescending tone of voice. When Noa ordered her to call her something like 'Princess Peach'. Mitsuki scratched her cheek gently thinking about it. "I like that... I think I'll call Momoka that from now on. Since, such a name doesn't suit you." Right, Momoka's name had Momo in it. "Or. Momo-Hime." At this moment and time, Mitsuki was only teasing Noa. But she actually really liked the nickname that she gave Noa. It was better than Ai's nickname for her... Or was it really a nickname? It was more like a nickname right?
Then, of course, Noa had to bring attention to them. Demanding that Mitsuki call her pretty. It was a pretty outrageous thing to do in Japan, which was why everyone was staring. Mitsuki, however, was immune to that type of pressure. "Then... Continue feeling insecure." Mitsuki said closing her cell phone as she started to walk. Yes, it was really harsh, but you really couldn't expect anything less from Mitsuki, even with Ai, who she was good friends with she had a rather indifferent attitude towards things like that. In fact, she had an indifferent attitude about most things. "I wasn't put on earth to boost your gigantic ego." And boy was Noa's large. It was probably why she was so annoyed by the girl most of the time. It was probably also why Mitsuki felt the need to watch out for her. God knows that that mouth was going to get her into a lot of trouble someday.
Mitsuki turned after a few minutes and looked back at Noa. "Come on, we're meeting at Ai's house." In fact, unless her timing was off, and it never was, Momoka and Ai were probably already there. Cleaning up or something. Though Mitsuki was not as strong willed as she seemed when it came to Noa. Since Mitsuki had a weakness for cute things, Noa was cute. Noa was cute and Momoka was beautiful. If the two became a united force they would've been unstoppable. Too bad they weren't that smart. "We can't keep them waiting after all." Since Mitsuki and Momoka were both rich just as Noa was, it left them rather immune to her Princess complex. Though Momoka more than Mitsuki. Momoka was like a brick wall sometimes, Mitsuki could respect that.
Ai felt herself wince when the girl sang out her name. It wasn’t intentional of course, she just naturally reacted that way. She nodded as the girl replied to her comment about being ready. It had been a pretty dumb question; after all she was waiting on Ai. She was momentarily frustrated with herself and then Momoka threw out the fact that she had called Shizumi it. Looked like today was going to pretty fantastic the way that Ai was throwing her comments around as if she was a moron; yep Ai was just full of wins today. She let out a small sigh, “Nao isn’t an It, the comment just slipped out. I usually think pretty highly of the…” She was lying, no worse she was trying to lie. She shoved her hands in her hoddie pockets and looked at Momoka and said, “Look, Nao is a princess. Okay?” and then she turned away to begin walking, not wanting to try and get herself deeper into the hole she had worked so hard to get out of. Usually her confidence would kick in, but at the moment she was just feeling down.
Ai stopped and looked at Momokai blankly, “I don’t care for clothes in general.” She said the statement as if it was obvious as the sky being blue. She wondered if the other girl was mocking her or trying to pick a fight. Her mouth pressed in a hard line, Ai was not going to start the fight, she wasn’t in the mood for it, so if the other girl wanted to instigate Ai would do her best to let it go. She just rolled her shoulders and continued to walk as Momokai commented on Noa buying the clothes. “It’s whatever." she huffed," If Noa wants to see me like this and is willing to pay for it, I’ve got no bones about it.” She said rather matter o factly. She knew that the other girl was a pervert, she just choose to ignore it as best as she could. “I mean, I’d rather be in jeans with a baggy t-shirt and a hat of some kind, but this is what I’ve got right now. I don’t have money I can spend willy nilly like you guys.” She said dryly and then felt herself tense. She hadn’t meant to be mean about it, it was just a true statement but a part of her felt like she could have held back a bit on her commenting.
When the younger girl asked to hold her hand Ai felt herself sigh. “Sure.” She said, sounding mildly defeated. It wasn’t really her kind of day, normally she would look at the girl like ‘what the hell, really?’ but she just didn’t have the energy that it would take to argue about such a stupid thing. She held out her hand to the other girl and continued to walk to her house, wanting more than anything to be able to clean for them all. It wasn’t a complete wreck but she knew it wouldn’t be as nice as the homes that they were used to and that made her quietly nervous. She could be so cocky about fighting and all the things that being senshi had usually, but when it came to their real lives and the fact that she had nothing compared to them. It just made her embarrassed, though she didn’t show it. She couldn’t. She wouldn’t be known as the weak one.
Noa pursed her lips and crossed her arms, beginning to pout, “She is not more of a princess then me.” She said in a childlike angry tone. Noa wasn’t really angry, she never got angry. She was just momentarily irritated by Mitsuki teasing her as if it was something that was acceptable even though they both knew that Noa hated being teased. “I’m so much more of a pretty princess then she is.” Noa whinned. She hadted being compared to other girls, especially Momoko who wouldn’t even give Noa the time of day she needed. This made it so that Noa had to constantly flirt and tease Ai (who was rather oblivious) just in hopes to get the other girl to have a reaction. That’s all Noa really wanted, people to pay attention to her. That was why when she became a Sailor Senshi she couldn’t be anything but thrilled. It meant she would be loved and adored by people, even if they never knew her true identity.
The girl frowned as she heard Mitsuki’s comment. It was so unbelievably cruel that she wasn’t quite sure what to do. If it would have been Ai Noa would have pressed onward, making it so the girl would eventually get irritated and tell her she was pretty just so she would shut up, but this was Mitsuki. It would be as hard as Momoko, but it would still be difficult. Noa looked at the girl for a hard few minutes; she couldn’t believe that Mitsuki wouldn’t even tell her she was pretty. Sure the other girl could be cruel, but she didn’t even have the decey to call her pretty when she wasn’t feeling like it. In fact, she was feeling even more insecure because she had been so openly rejected. She wasn’t used to it, even though she had been used to Mitsuki by now she couldn’t get used to being rejected. It just made her upset and even needier than she had been before. She crossed her arms, looking at the other carefully; deciding her plan of action. “You’re just in a mood.” She commented, she couldn’t allow herself to believe that Mitsuki didn’t really like her.
“Nope.” She said as Mitsuki began to talk about going to see Ai and Mitsuki. Noa wanted nothing to do with any of them; not at the moment anyway. Her mind would change eventually and she would want them to all be around her and making her feel loved, but at the moment she thought she was done with all of it. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath, “I’m not going.” She said. And then opening her eyes and smiling viciously at Mitsuki she continued, “If all you’re ever going to do is be mean, I want nothing to do with it.” And then she turned and began to run, having the worse sense of direction in the world she was bound to get lost.
Momoka frowned when Ai called Noa a princess. "I liked it better when you called her it." She said quietly to herself. Oh yes, Momoka was jealous. It wasn't only because of her general dislike for the girl. Noa didn't deserve to be rich, if anyone deserved to be rich it was Ai.. Momoka would do anything for Ai, even if it seemed like she only wanted to pick fights and only have sex with her... "Ai... What do you call me when I'm not around?" Momoka was expecting something like the monster or that b***h... Especially since Noa and Ai got along better than Momoka and Ai did. Even if Momoka had affectionate feelings for the other girl, she didn't really show it much did she?
Grabbing Ai's hand gently, Momoka stuffed her cell phone into her purse before smiling a bit. "You know... If you want I could take you shopping and buy your usual kind of clothes for you... I like Ai-chan as Ai-chan.." Oh god, that sounded terrible. Momoka went to push her hair back gently before feeling a familiar pain in her shoulder. Last night, she had an altercation with something. A yokai... It was so late at night and Momoka was exhausted from work she didn't even remember fighting it but it did a number on her. Specifically, her shoulder had been dislocated and was still in pain... It was the main reason why Momoka asked to hang out in the first place.. No one else seemed to be getting attacked, why just her?
"Ai-chan.. Is there anyway I can take a nap while you clean?" On that note, Ai-chan might have made snarky comments on Momoka, Mitsuki, and Noa's wealth but Momoka had to most literally work for it and she worked a lot. The normal time for her to come home was probably 2 or 3 in the morning and she'd have to wake up at 7 for school. Mitsuki had to work for her wealth too but not nearly as hard.
"Are you sure about that? They call Momoka the Japanese Cinderella and she even works." Mitsuki said unaffected by Noa's tone. Ai and Mitsuki probably talked about the differences between the emotionally needy Momoka and the selfishly needy Noa. The main one being the fact that one worked and one didn't. Mitsuki had far more wealth than either of them anyway, her wealth reaching to all five continents. Her paintings were brilliant, encasing the darkness in her personal world, but the only one who knew about the truth behind her paintings was Mitsuki.
When Noa became silent Mitsuki knew that she went too far, as usual. She was going to apologize then Noa said that she was in a mood and it made Mitsuki irritated. "No, I'm not in a mood, I'm just sick or your manipulative needy s**t and you wonder why Momoka doesn't pay attention to you. No one's jealous, maybe they'd call you pretty if you didn't try to force them into things, maybe people would respect you if you got off your a** and did something relevant. I can't even look at your face." And she walked in the opposite direction when Noa started talking about not going. Whatever. Mitsuki didn't care, now she was in a mood. If Noa wanted to run off and get herself lost, let her, Mitsuki didn't care...
Well ******** her... There she was walking in the direction that Noa ran off with her arms crossed as she looked for the other woman. Really, was she a child? Why did Mitsuki have to be the one to watch her? Well, for one thing Momoka and Ai didn't care but why did Mitsuki? Was it motherly instinct? "Now where the hell is she?" Mitsuki asked irritably as she smoked a cigarette to calm herself down, it wasn't working.
The dark haired girl rolled her eyes as Momoka frowned at her; she wasn’t happy with anything Ai did. Whether she called Nao it or princess it was never what the girl really wanted her to say. Ai thought about what Momoka had asked carefully, to answer that question was to ask for a death sentence. She kenw that the girl wouldn’t be happy with what she had to say; there were plenty of names that Ai had given the younger female when she wasn’t around. ”Psycho.” she said rather matter-o-factly and then winced at the sound of her own voice. Damn she wasn’t good at talking to girls, or perhaps it was just Momoka. After all their relationship wasn’t exactly the best. She did her best to look indifferent but her cheeks were burning fiercely. ”You’re darling too, it’s just you piss me off a lot more than anyone else because of your bitching.” and with that she just looked away, ignoring the girl’s gaze best she could. She really was quite terrible at speaking to Momoka. It had been an attempt to compliment, but then she couldn’t stop herself from talking more and more.
As Ai began to breathe evenly, her embarrassment and anger set aside she shrugged her shoulders at the girl’s comment. ”Like I said, clothes don’t bug me much. I’ll wear whatever.” she wasn’t quite sure what Momoka had meant by liking her as her, if anything Ai took it as she was trying to make fun of Ai and her rather obscene clothing choice; not something Ai had really thought was worth fighting about so she choose to ignore the comment. She already had managed to dig herself enough of a hole for the day; calling her Psycho and bringing up Momoka’s bitching. Out of the corner of her eye she noticed the girl had an odd look on her face, ”Are you okay?” she murmured to the girl, shifting her eyes away from her, watching people’s faces as they passed down the street, looking for danger. It was a fair question to ask, they were somewhat friends and if they weren’t they were still senshi together.
The older girl let out a sigh, ”I guess that would be okay, after all you probably couldn’t help much anyway.” she said blatantly as she let go of the girl’s hand to open the door to the apartment, unlocking it and then holding the door open for the other girl to get in. ”Do me a favor and call twedle dee and dumb and see if they’re heading our way yet.” she called out as she closed the door behind her. ”Go ahead and just go into my room and sleep on my bed, I’ve got to clean the living room and I don’t want to have to work around your a**.”
Noa, as usual, hadn’t really thought the whole running off thing through. Her run had turned into a slow pace as she looked around the plaza she was in. It wasn’t one that Noa had usually hung around in and she really didn’t know much about street names; after all she had never had to learn any of them. The young girl sat on the edge of a fountain, a deep frown on her face, she couldn’t believe all the things that Mitsuki had said to her; the words had been cruel and unrealistically harsh the Asian girl. She hadn’t needed to go so far as to try and make Noa feel unpretty; that was almost unforgivable.
It couldn’t have been true, there was no way that everyone thought that Momoka was the Japanese Cinderella, but even if they did it wouldn’t matter. Noa was much better than some silly Cinderella who had to marry a prince in order to become a princess, she was like Aurora. The Disney princess, who was a princess, who had been casted away in order to be protected; something very similar to Noa, in her mind at least; she had been sent off to Earth in order to protect her kingdom, the outer planet kingdom, Saturn. ”Stupid Mitsuki.” she grumbled as she looked into the fountain, her nose crinkling as she noticed all the change in the bottom of it. What an odd tradition, normal people threw away their money because they thought it would grant all of their wishes. Noa’s eyes widened for a moment, an idea coming to mind.
She got up and pulled out her wallet, she didn’t have a lot of cash but she had around 39,680 yen just carelessly stored in there. She took out the money and began to skip around the plaza as she threw the money, the people around there all looking at her oddly and then suddenly grabbing to get the pieces of paper she threw so carelessly, thank yous all around her. She couldn’t help but laugh, people really did love her, as long as she gave them what she wanted. Who cared what Mitsuki thought when all of the people must have had good opinions on her?
