Amu Hinamori was laying in bed, her covers over her. She was a bit grimy, of course. And just in her pajamas. But soon. Two more days. That was it. Then she could go back to school and be with her friend again, yayyyy! She just had to tough it out for a few more days.

The door to her room outside was open, allowing anyone with jumping skills to just come right in. Good, because most of her friends could jump twenty feet in the air and it meant she didn't have to get out of bed to go let them in. Bad because, well, actually, no one had attacked her while she was sick. So not so bad. Her charas were sleeping in their cute little egg things. she had an empty bowl of soup by her and... a minor stain on the front of her pajamas. Just to make this end worse.

It's not an entirely altruistic Sailor Moon that slides in through Amu's open window. Part of her may be hoping to catch whatever cooties the girl has as an excuse to visit Mamoru and maybe even miss a day of school. Not that she needs excuses, technically, but she'd feel less bad about distracting him from his studies if she goes over for a legitimate reason.

But most of her is altruistic! As her sailor outfit shimmers and fades to the more casual sweater and skirt ensamble almost appropriate for November (hey, she's wearing stockings!), she pulls out the care package she'd put together.

A get well stuffed bunny, because they're better than bears and perfect for snuggling, some crackers and juice, aaaand...okay, she's read this manga a hundred times, it's okay if she lends it out and it's okay if it explodes.

Gulp.

There's also a couple other things mixed in, and either she is a genius at putting together unexpected items together that made no sense but probably fit somehow, or she'd been in a hurry after having gotten distracted by texting her boyfriend.

But hey, just ignore that errant ketchup packet when you get to it.

And of course there's a get well card, and of course it's adorable and cute and fluffy.

And then...she is faced with a dilema.

She'd intended to just drop it off and let Amu sleep, but now she doesn't know where to put it. And having someone step on a basket that would probably bleed condiments if stepped on too hard wouldn't be the best of things.

So in a stage whisper, wanting to wake Amu up if she was asleep but also not wanting to, she decides to just ask.

"Amu-chan, I don't know where to put this. If you're asleep, just point somewhere!"
Amu Hinamori 2016-11-11 12:02:58 60157
Amu Hinamori sat up, then tried to avoid bursting into giggles. She pointed towards the desk. "Just put it over there. Here, I--" and she leaned over too far and fell off the bed, landing face first. Sadly, she wasn't contagious. But it seemed usagi was. She picked herself up a moment later and held her face. "J-just... just over there is fine," she mumbled, her cheeks burning red.

She looked up at the girl and... dang it. She already felt a flare of jealously. Sure, she'd had an AMAZING make out session with her boyfriend. But now she had a woman who was a bona fide super model(not really) in her room and she couldn't help feeling a little inferior again. She patted the bed by herslef... the nrealized her hair wasn't even done, just wild and messy. and her clothes were all frumpy. And she was just... guhhhhhhh. But, she should be a good host!

"I'm not contagious anymore, so there's no worries about getting too close. I'm surprised to see you came by, did the others tell you?" she asked, gving a weak smile.
Usagi Tsukino 2016-11-11 12:12:09 60158
Usagi squeaks and flails her hands! Oh no! She makes to help Amu up, but the girl is able to do that on her own.

Of course, the flailing of the hands also causes her to flail the basket. Nothing falls out but it's still a big object.

She sets it down where inticated, making sure to bring the bunny with her so he doesn't suffocate.

"You're not? Drat. No! I mean good! Heh..." She sits down and hands over the bunny. She nods her head. "Yup! There's a grapevine. Is your face okay? I got a cold bottle of milk if you wanna use it!"
Amu Hinamori 2016-11-11 12:15:33 60159
Amu Hinamori blinked. Milk? She always like milk! Ohhh, bunny! She grinned and then held it, and for a moment was all happy. Then her cheeks turned red. "T-thank you. N-not that I, uhhh, really care about these things." "So cool and spicy," Miki said sarcastically. Amu rolled her eyes, before smiling to Usagi.

"My face is fine, but milk sounds good. I try to always have a nice glass of it when ever I'm feeling down. so, ummmm..." She smiled shyly to the other girl. "Errr, what do the rumors say? I've heard some think I got suspended for punching out the principle... eh heh... heh..."
Usagi Tsukino 2016-11-11 12:24:28 60160
Usagi shrugs and pulls out the small bottle of milk from her subspace pocket. It's still ice cold, still fresh, even if the expiration date is a bit off. (Hey, it's been in there for awhile.)

She hands it over and giggles at the nonchalance. "It's okay," she says toward the smaller voice. "She's allowed not to be right now, she's sick!"

Being sick got you a Special Pass.

Her eyes widen! "Punching the principal? I haven't heard that! How mean." She taps her chin in thought. "Dunno what the people at your school are saying. My grapevine's Virtue."

She huffs. "I should start expanding my grapevines..."
Amu Hinamori 2016-11-11 12:28:10 60161
Amu Hinamori nodded and then cringed. "Virtue, huh? so, ummmm..." She poked her fingers together.

"Are you here to tell me it was stupid, too? L-listen, I know it was reckless, a-and I know Icould have gotten really hurt a-and I know I should have waited until I could properly walk a-and move about and... and I know it was bad. B-but I felt that dark energy and... and I couldn't just ignore it. I-I had to act! And... I only got a little stabbed. The doctor just had to put a few stitches in and it's mostly healed since. I haven't left the house since, I swear."

Seems she'd been getting quite the talking to. She looked off to the sid,e then blushed and looked to her. "Have there... been any incidents since? I mean... since... other than... I-I haven't felt anything but..." She gripped her knees. "If I was needed, they'd call me, right? I mean, I know I'm sick but--" "Stop trying to get yourself killed! I will tell Tadase on you! Again! Or Kukai! Or Nagi!" Miki warned, making Amu cringe. "Sorry..." She sipped her milk. Unaware she was about toget food poisoning.
Usagi Tsukino 2016-11-11 12:40:27 60162
Blink! Blink blink! Slightly overwhelmed blink!

"Why would I tell you it was stupid? I got stabbed before! Twice! Both times by friends! It was an accident, though, each one. And ug, I'm jealous! I actually wanted to do it because she kept chewing on Naru-chan. But then Kunzite said she'd be allergic to my energy and she thought I was trying to trick her!"

Usagi wiggles and squiggles more onto the bed before hugging the distraught girl, because this is Usagi and Usagi hugs sad people, even when they're Cool and Spicy Amus.

"If something like that happened, they'd get you. Right now I think they just want you to get better, even if that means they may have to work a little bit extra in the mean time."
Amu Hinamori 2016-11-11 12:43:58 60163
Amu Hinamori blinked a few times, closing her eyes. Awww, the hug was nice. "Ah. so, you uhhhh... know about Lacrima-chan then, too. Yeah. It was... I do plan to go back once I get all better. But it's not so bad once you get used to it. and I'll be more careful this time, not... every day."

"I don't know. It just felt... good to help. since my arm was broken and I couldn't fight as well..." Sighed again. "Not that I can really fight like you girls anyway..." awww, back to the pity party. Then urked. "B-but yeah. I'm feeling a lot better. I still can't believe I made such a fool of myself at the dance. They, uhhh, they aren't talking much about it, are they? I know I kind of... I think I passed out in a punch bowl and... may have punched out a giant banana?" Neither of which happened.
Usagi Tsukino 2016-11-11 12:49:17 60164
Usagi shrugs. "Like I said. Grapevine."

She nods along! She knows what that feels like!

"But ohhhhh you can cleanse without hurting people! It felt so much nicer than my own. It was like a warm hug! Ahhhh, so jealous. I wish I could cleanse people without wanting to cry after!"

She taps her chin in thought. "I don't remember a face in a punch bowl. And I didn't see any giant bananas. Though I was distracted by a dance near the end there. And in the beginning. But oh! I wanted to come over and give you hugs! You looked so saaaad!"

So she gives her the hugs now!
Amu Hinamori 2016-11-11 12:52:05 60165
Amu Hinamori blushed and kind of.... enjoyed the hugs. she liked attention! It didn't help that she was so cool and spicy her parents thought she was okay to be home alone by herself even while she was sick. She did gently reach out and hug her. "T-thank you. It... ummm... it means a lot to me. That you came." she didn't even have to chara change for it!

"Y-yeah, that's what tadase-kun said. And Kukai-kun. I'm still surprised yours hurts at all. I mean, you're so like... perfect and everything. You beat up monsters and have a really good relationship and are so pretty and have big-- grk. A big heart." yes, totallywhat she was going to say.
Usagi Tsukino 2016-11-11 13:01:14 60166
"Of course! Friends visiting when you're sick is good for the immune system! ...Maybe! It should be!"

Yay hugs!

And then she snorts. And giggles. And giggle snorts. "I am very much not perfect. Just ask my Mama! And she's biased at me!" She gives a happy sigh and leans back against Amu's head board. "But I do my best because my girls do their best. And Mamo-chan's just, well, always the best." Even when he's being a jerk. She doesn't say that out loud, though, because people look at her funny!
Amu Hinamori 2016-11-11 13:04:17 60167
Amu Hinamori sighed and leaned back against it too, nodding. "Yeah. But you're so amazing! You've got your own team who depends on you, everyone knows who you are, you fight monsters and other things. I mean, all I do is cheer people up and give them pep talks. Worst case, if I fail... well... what really happens? But you save the world! Like, all the time! You're like the epitome of virtue."

She then sighed and glances to the side. "And I'm more just... the intern..." she mumbled softly, before giving a sigh. Maybe it was just her being sick speaking. totally not the way she's been feeling for a while thanks to miss perfect super model. Noooope.
Usagi Tsukino 2016-11-11 13:15:25 60168
"She may have been, but I'm just me." She sighs. "If we didn't have people to cheer us up or give us pep talks, really scary fights become impossible. Mamo-chan always has to give me pep talks, and I don't think I coulda done it without him."

She sighs and stretches out. "If we don't pick up the asparagus, the roosters will wear fedoras."

What had started out as a coherent sentence ended...well, she can fall asleep really fast.

And she's been busy studying pictures drawn on a wall on the moon, trying hard to not be a clinging mess to her studious boyfriend, barely passing her classes, and on top of that she's Sailor Moon. When she's comfortable and safe, it's easy to fall asleep.
Amu Hinamori 2016-11-11 13:17:33 60169
Amu Hinamori blinked and looked over at her. Really? Amu was the sick one! Amu! She considered waking her up. Then sighed and laid back. Being one of them wasn't easy.

Besides, Sailor moon was kind of... cool. Even if Amu was super jealous of her. It was kind of nice seeing her nod off like that. She pulled the covers over the two of them and nestled into place, soon softly snoring as well.

Well, at least THIS Tadase couldn't get jealous of.
