Location: Makoto's Roof
Synopsis: Usagi gets a memory from SilMil.
Cast of Characters: Usagi Tsukino

Usagi's just sort of staring as a wall when the memories come to her. She hasn't given up on Endymion, at least not in the way Mars thinks. She has complete faith in him. But add together every other factor? Yeah.

Princess Serenity has never been known of being a person who could sit still for longer than five minutes. Even now, during ceremonies or meetings with dignitaries from Pluto, a part of her is always in motion.

But not now.

For the past half hour, she's been watching Jadeite work in his studio. His hands are covered in clay, and the block he'd started with has only just now started to show signs of the end result. He hasn't yet started with the tools outside his own hands, feeling instead the shape it wants to be and moving his fingers along, flesh and clay working together.

And it's not the clay itself that has her so fascinated. Its his face as he molds and works and thinks. She's, sadly, never been around many artisans as they worked their craft, but right now she's pretty sure there would, or should, be a market on admission to watch people as they worked on something they loved to do.

"How long does it usually take to make something?" She waits to ask this as he's wiping his hands clean on a damp rag.

His eyebrows raise without taking his focus off the clay lump. "Hmm?" Then he blinks. "It depends, really. How much detail. The complexity of a design. It could take hours, it could take weeks."

Her own eyes widen. "Weeks?"

Jadeite looks up at her and grins. "Of course."

Then it's time for tools.

Serenity doesn't, of course, stay to watch for the weeks it would take. She has to get home, after all.

Usagi wonders if Jadeite will sculpt again, and soon.

She'd like to watch.

Also, looking at the clock, it's Valentine's day.

Hello, giant tub of ice cream.
