Unmei Tama lived in a small apartment. She was sitting on the couch, staring at the boxes. She didn't know where to start, how to do this. She wanted to ask for help, but, well, this was her problem.

"Just ask for help!" Pin said.

"Really? Don't your friends have enough to do? This is your responsibility, Unmei," Win said. "They moved the stuff you were too weak to do. Unpacking the rest of this is for you."

"Ugh, I know! I just.... don't know where to start."

"Why do you even need so many toys?" Win asked.

"They're.... collectibles."

"You wasted their money with this? Imagine how many people could have been helped with that kind of money?"

Unmei sighed and hugged her knees to her chest.

The apartment was a few floors up, with a broken metal railing outside. Very anime-ish.

Lacrima appears from the alley via a dark step. She has a perfectly wrapped present in her hands with a bow. She looks up the stairs as she begins to walk up them. Step. step. step. Step. step.

It begins to rain halfway up. It's a rainy night tonight outside. She stands outside the door and knocks three times shortly, before she steps back. When the door is opened. She head tilts.

"Hello. This is for you." she says, as she blinks a moment.

"Um. Someone. Told me you moved into a new place. So I came to. Say hello?" she says.

She is bad at people nowadays.

"Yes. Say hello."

Unmei Tama stared. Tried not to squeak. She took it and looked down. "Err. T-thank... thank you." Please don't eat me please don't eat me. "Come... come in..." She motioned her in and...

"Oh crap..." Pin mumbled in Unmei's head. "What does she want?"

Unmei was silent for a bit. Then... "You're not... here from Eclipse, are you? Because... I-I don't have the gem. And... and Mamo and Kun would be mad if you attacked me and tried to take Pin or Win..." she mumbled very softly.

Lacrima comes in easily enough without issue. She doesn't move to attack, or make any fast movements. She's her usual slow and deliberate self. She blinks and turns to Unmei when she talks like that. "....No?" she asks curiously.

"I'm here because I was told you moved. Like I said. And I wished to deliver a present. Is that... okay?" she asks softly.

She eyes the boxes and looks up. "Do you need help?" she asks.

"You can open the gift. If you want." she says. "It isn't very interesting I don't think."

Indeed! Inside is merely a picture that is framed, of some portrait of some Oklahoman field with a barn and a stormy sky. Weird.

Unmei Tama blinked as she opened it. She paused. "It's very..."

"It's crap," Pin said in her head.

"What? No, it's not. It's a gift. You should like it for that reason alone. How selfish are you?" Win objected.

"It's very unique," Unmei said. "Would you like some juice?" She put the picture on the shelf, then sighed. "No. I have it handled. I think. Sorta. Maybe. I don't know. It's.... there's a lot to it. I guess. I don't know what I'm doing half the time. I think. It's.... confusing. There's so much to unpack and... I mean, I don't have that much. But if I unpack it just..." She trailed off. "I know i have to start... but... I don't feel like... I can. You know? I just... ugh..."

Lacrima looks down. "My dad isn't Japanese. Not fully. He's Japanese-American. He grew up in the place that portrait is a picture of. And there's similar piece by the same artist in my home." she says softly. "It calms me a little. That picture so. I dunno. Maybe it was stupid." she says.

"I think you should take it one item at a time. That sounds like it'd be easiest." she says.

She can't hear the *ins arguing in Unmei's head.

"But I think the best idea is just to start. Starting is the hard part. Everything that comes after should be easy. When it comes to something like that." she says.

Unmei Tama sighed and nodded, opening a box and just... staring. ".... It's funny. I'm..." She trailed off. "Years ago, I remember getting ready to leave. Home. I mean. I have to. With Pin. I just... I had to leave. I didn't tell them anything. Shut up, Win. I'll flush you. You have no idea what it was like." The voice didn't start in her head. "I didn't... think I'd have anything then. Friends. A family. A girl friend. A... a home of my own. But now..."

She stared and picked up the Sailor V collectible figure. "I have so, so much more. I remember being sad when I left my things behind. And I'm still missing some of it. But... I have new things and..." She trailed off. ".... I... kind of want to go back. Not home. Never home. Gosh no. But... with Kun and the others. But I also wanna be away from them? I like having my own place but... i feel so..." She trailed off. Then.... "I feel lonely. I guess."

Lacrima head tilts and frowns. "My brother found out what I am." she says quietly. "And he didn't take it well. So I'm not allowed home. And my family thinks I ran away again. And I'm staying in the manor right now. And Mamoru-san is trying to help me deal with the problems being what I am has given me." she says quietly.

"It's good to be on your own. When your able. Right?" she says quietly.

"It's not like. They dissapeared or anything. You can call and text. Can't you?" she asks.

Unmei Tama blinked and nodded. "Oh. Well. That does sound worse. I guess. And... kinda." She then stared more intently at the doll. "I've never been on my own before," she whispered. "I know they're not. But... but a small part of me feels like.... like they're.... trying to get rid of me," she whispered. "I've always had someone telling me what to do. Where to go. First mom. Then Eclipse. Then.... I had them. I just had to go to school. They... he helped. A lot. But now I'm..."

She trailed off again. "Now I'm alone. For... real..." Tears welled up in her eyes. "This is home now and... and it's my home... alone... I know they're... there. But they were always there. But now it feels so much more distant..."

Lacrima shakes her head. "If they were trying to get rid of you, they'd had done so sooner than later." she says matter of factly. "It is better not to worry, about what you think." she says quietly.

"That's how. Dark energy builds. Dark.. bad thoughts. It's why I have them all the time. Because it's all I am." she says.

She gently shifts a bit. She's bad with this.

"Maybe you should call and talk to Kunzite?" she asks. "Sometimes soon? That may help." she says. "Talking about your feelings. I hear that helps." she says.

Unmei Tama nodded. "I'll call him later. He's probably busy or something. He's..." she trailed off. "He does so much. You know? He's put up with so much from me. All of them have. I don't know why. I didn't deserve it. I never... deserved it. I'm just.... an annoyance." She leaned back and held the toy.

"I caused them nothing but trouble. I... attacked Kun I think once. And I..." She trailed off. "Or all of them... even... but..." she sighed. "I asked Kun why he helped me. Before. He said. I made... I make a lot of bad decisions. You know? But... but on the big things. On the important things. When.... when something is big on the line. I always make the right one. Like... like giving the... the witches seed to Kyo and... and going for help... when I... was falling apart."
Lacrima 2017-08-25 08:44:32 81762
Lacrima head tilts. "You attacked him once." she says quietly.

"I attacked him once. Then. I almost drained Mamoru to a husk because I attacked him when I didn't know him. And... what Mamoru is. Is like a Parfait filled Chocolate cake with triple whipped icing to a thing like me. It's delicious and you don't want to stop. And that summoned Kunzite. Because apparently I was hurting Mamoru enough for some sort of 'signal' to be sent out through him to Kunzite and Sailor Moon both." she says.

"--but."

"They both still help me. I don't know why either. They let me visit whenever like anyone else. I wonder when I'm going to lose control and hurt him again. I wonder when that rule is gonna bite him in the ass, even though apparently- it has many times."

"I'm sure he'll be glad to hear you're doing okay." she says dryly.

"....I'm not sure if this is helping. Sorry." she says.

Unmei Tama sighed and put it on the shelf. "One down, a thousand to go. I..." She lowered her eyes before shaking her head. "Can... you go? I just... I... I 'm really tired. It's been a long day and I just... I need some me time. Please. I need to... just sleep. I think. I don't know if I..."

She sighed and gripped her forehead in her hands. "I just... I need to sleep a bit..." She shook her head. "It's not your fault. I just... Please." And practically threw her out. So rude! Such a rude girl, this one.
