Unmei Tama 2018-11-23 23:05:39 100823
Unmei Tama was not feeling the best. She had an apple shake in her hand and was staring down at it. Her hair was a nice, dark green and... Well... She didn't have... She just seemed a million miles away.

She missed Pin and Win. She missed their banter. She missed their fun. She missed them. Now she lived in that house entirely alone. Well. Apartment. And it sucked. There was no one there, just her and... While she'd felt lonely before, now without anyone? Going home felt awful and she'd have rather gone anywhere else. She wondered if she should bring that up to Kunzite...

Nah, she pestered him enough already.
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-23 23:18:01 100824
Ami Mizuno walks by with a chocolate shake and her bookbag, and she smiles when she recognizes the familiar face. "Hey. Unmei, isn't it? Can I join you?" the bluenette asks.
Unmei Tama 2018-11-23 23:22:48 100825
Unmei Tama cocked her head to the side. "Ami? Yeah, oh. Yeah, sit. Feel free. I ummm... didn't expect to see you here. Don't you have like... genius stuff to do?" she asked. She seemed... entirely honest.
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-23 23:24:29 100827
Ami Mizuno blinks, then smiles, even as she sits. "Even geniuses need a brain break," she says kindly. "And I've got my homework, but friends are more important. Besides, you looked a little lonely, so I decided that you needed someone to talk to." Then she flushes. "I mean, if you want to. I don't mean to pry."
Unmei Tama 2018-11-23 23:30:24 100828
Unmei Tama shook her head. "No! No no! It's fine, really. I guess I just... have been a bit... lonely... lately..." she grumbled. "It's stupid, I know. I mean, you've got a lot more important things to do than... you know. You're... well..." She kind of whispered the next bit. "Mercury... You're one of the coolest and powerful magical girls around. You got better things than to worry about me..."
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-23 23:32:04 100829
Ami Mizuno smiles, not unkindly, and shakes her head gently. "Friends are just as important," she says softly. "And I like to think of you as a potential friend." Her eyes sparkle in the light. "Besides. No one deserves to be lonely, Unmei."
Unmei Tama 2018-11-23 23:34:58 100830
Unmei Tama couldn't NOT smile. Oh, Ami. She was so kind. So gentle. So sweet. MAybe--

Unmei started. What? Oh gosh she was talking to one of the SAILOR SCOUTS! Nope, she couldn't whine to her. Anything she said would get back to the others and they already do a lot for her. She finally sighed and nodded.

"It's fine. Just... you know. Holidays now. Parents don't want me, Haven't seen Pip and Win since the whole... Earth incident. So just... it'll go away in a week or two. After the holidays and I stop having 'happy family' times jammed down my throat. You know?"
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-23 23:36:21 100831
Ami Mizuno nods sympathetically and leans in, smiling ruefully. "You know, despite my mom trying her hardest," she says softly, confiding a great secret, "she's a doctor. She's around for holidays, but so often busy. That said, if you'd like to come over for Christmas, you're welcome to."
Unmei Tama 2018-11-23 23:48:22 100834
Unmei Tama smiled and nodded. "Y-yeah... I bet you're lonely... too... And I appreciate it. But please, it's fine. I'm sure you'll have more important things then. Aren't you going to your... boy friend or someting? Or... I mean, going with the scouts on something?"
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-23 23:49:13 100835
Ami Mizuno smiles and shrugs. "Probably," she says. "But maybe you could come with us girls." Including Unmei in the 'us girls' statement. "I dunno. I hate the thought of you being alone at Christmas."
Unmei Tama 2018-11-24 00:00:07 100837
Unmei Tama sighed. "I... I'd rather you didn't mention that to the others... I'm sorry, I've already said too much. I'll probably try and pester some of my friends. It's okay, really." Then urked. "N-not that you're not my friend. I mean... you are, just..."

How to say 'You have more important things to do than me' without sounding... self attacking.
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-24 00:01:48 100838
Ami Mizuno nods slowly, worry on her face, but she's trying to respect Unmei's wishes. "All right," she says, softly."I think I understand."

"What's going on with school?" she says, taking a different tack.
Unmei Tama 2018-11-24 00:07:55 100839
Unmei Tama blinked. "School? Oh... ummm... I've been putting in applications for a few training schools and... I'm gonna try to become a teacher. It was Kunzite's idea, that I try and... Well, less his idea. More he helped me find this idea. You know. How smart he is..."

she nervously fiddled with her thumbs, eyes lowered. She... Ami had no idea how BADLY Unmei wanted to come 'with us girls'. To be included in the girl things. To be invited. But... she... doubted Ami wanted her. She jsut felt Unmei was too depressed and worried and... Obviously she just wanted to help and once again unmei was being a drain on everyone around her. "How about you? What are you trying to do?"
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-24 00:10:11 100840
Ami Mizuno smiles gently, her eyes still on Unmei, full of warmth and real affection. She genuinely likes Unmei, despite her nervousness. Everyone gets sad. Everyone gets anxious. Ami understands that better than anyone, really. She was even in Unmei's shoes, once upon a few years ago.

"I want to be a doctor, like my mom," she says quietly, eyes gentle, voice full of hope. "I've been applying to schools all over--Germany, even in America."
Unmei Tama 2018-11-24 00:16:39 100841
Unmei Tama nodded, smiling back. She was relaxing a bit more, reaching up to fiddle with the gem hidden against her chest. "You're gonna be a doctor? Wow. Like Mamoru? You both are really smart. What kind of stuff do you want to do?" she asked, cocking her head to the side. "I'd love to hear about it!"
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-24 00:23:17 100842
Ami Mizuno blushes, smiling a little down at her hands. "What do you mean? Like what specialty I want to do? I think I want do be a doctor that delivers babies and takes care of pregnant women," she says, looking a little embarrassed.
Unmei Tama 2018-11-24 00:26:55 100843
Unmei Tama blinked a few times. She opened her mouth to speak. Then stopped herself. She cocked her head to the side. Welp. She guessed that meant she'd never ask Ami for medical advice! She decided AGAINST making that particular joke. "That's really cool! I bet you'll be great!
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-24 00:27:33 100844
Ami Mizuno smiles, still blushing. "Thanks," she says quietly, looking down. She's embarrassed for some reason--doesn't like talking about herself, probably.
Unmei Tama 2018-11-24 00:28:30 100845
Unmei Tama glanced off to the side and... finally... "So... ummmm... How have things been for you girls? The ummm, scouts/ I mean, you guys are like... the leaders and stuff. So... you must always have awesome things going on...."
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-24 00:29:45 100846
Ami Mizuno smiles crookedly. "Not always." But she goes silent, fiddling with her straw a bit. "Things have been okay, just normal lately. It's kind of nice."
Unmei Tama 2018-11-24 00:37:08 100847
Unmei Tama nodded. "Really? Huh... So what about... Other stuff. You have a boy friend or... girl friend, right? How do they feel about the whole like.... You going to another country to have school?"
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-24 00:37:55 100848
Ami Mizuno shrugs. "I don't know. He and I haven't talked about it yet, but I'm pretty sure he'll be fully supportive." She carefully doesn't drop a name.
Unmei Tama 2018-11-24 00:45:32 100849
Unmei Tama nodded. Then... "I'd... talk with him... something like that... It can be... rough. Long distance. It can be really tough... on a relationship..." she mumbled.
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-24 00:46:38 100850
Ami Mizuno nods, peering at Unmei. But she doesn't ask; she doesn't know how to do it gracefully. So instead, she sips from her shake, now halfway empty, and falls quiet, looking around.
Unmei Tama 2018-11-24 00:53:15 100851
Unmei Tama shrugged. "I'd offer advice but like... I've had one relationship ever. And itttt... well. I guess we're still friends, at least. So that's not so bad? Maybe ask... ummmm... Usagi? She seems really smart and good at relationships."
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-24 00:53:46 100852
Ami Mizuno barely manages to keep a straight face and the laughter out of her voice as she says, "I just might, thank you, Unmei."
Unmei Tama 2018-11-24 00:56:21 100853
Unmei Tama nodded. "Or... ummm.... really, there's a LOT of girls who date in our circle. Adn they're really smart. So... sorry. It's none of my business."
Ami Mizuno 2018-11-24 00:58:21 100854
Ami Mizuno smiles at Unmei with warmth and sweetness. "It's all right. I can probably figure it out with their help, it's true." And she's about to say more when her cell phone goes off. "I should take this, but it was good catching up with you. Get my number from Kunzite, will you?" the last sentence is said quietly. "I'd love to hang out more, but I really should go." And she's off, answering her phone with a backwards, apologetic glance.
Unmei Tama 2018-11-24 01:00:38 100855
Unmei Tama cocked her head to the side. Why would... "Oh. Okay. It was great talking with you, Ami! I ummm... hope we can do it again sometime." She couldn't help but smile up at the other girl. She... was just... so incredibly cool. And amazing. And just... All of them were. The scouts.
