What the hell had all that been about?

Her mind reeled all the long walk home; confusion and anger melding into one ruling emotion. Why did the civilians attack them like that? Had that been the entire point of the riot – to draw the senshi to the flames and proceed to (attempt) to beat the shit out of them? The civilians had underestimated the senshi – or at least, had underestimated the senshi’s link to the shitennou. Who knew what would have happened if the men hadn’t been there to add their magic tricks to the chaos – to draw some of the attention. Of course, when the civilians had turned their attention to the men, it had been in a much more positive light than when it had been on the senshi. If the shitennou had not arrived on the scene, Andy could only imagine one outcome: a lot of civilian deaths.

Which probably wouldn’t have looked all that good.

Parting from the other girls, Andy thought she should get cleaned up – she couldn’t just lurk around with blood trickling down her face, in any case. Detransforming as she moved, the brunette headed for her own home, as opposed to the apartment she semi-shared with Crispy: she didn’t want to get stuck in the same old argument of her fighting while pregnant. She wanted to check on the others after she made a quick stop home, and she couldn’t do that if she was locked in the building or something. Wiping some of the blood with the back of her hand, Andy sighed as she picked up the pace and headed for home.
Once home and after the reflexive greeting of her two barking dogs, Andy proceeded to wash the blood from her forehead. It wasn’t too deep a cut; it was just in an irritating place. The cut was long and shallow; she managed to clean it well enough, and pull on clothes that did not have the tangy scent of iron. As she cleaned and changed, her mind made its decision: she would visit Rosie. Poor kid; she’d seen how she was separated from all the other girls for most of the battle, encircled by the civilians like they were vultures and she was dead meat. Andy’s maternal instinct was in high gear: she wanted to make sure that the youngest of the warriors was safe and sound, as happy as she could be after being attacked by the people she saved – attacked by the people that she, in the future, ruled.

It was all very strange.

The Cole’s house was a bit of a trek from Andy’s own, but distance had very rarely stopped her before. Once there, it was well and truly night – darkness came early in the winter months regardless: she could feel the bite of the cold through the green sweater she wore. Knocking on the door, she put on her best smile and greeted Mrs. Cole as enthusiastically as she ever did: wouldn’t want the woman to think there was something wrong, something preying on her mind. Asking if she could see Rosie, she was told that she could go straight up and see her in her room. Vaguely, Andy wondered if the woman thought that it was strange, that Chloe’s friends would be so close to Rosie.
Maybe Mrs. Cole was a bit ditzier than she put on?

Chloe had to get it from somewhere… right?

Putting that thought to the back of her mind, Andy nodded and thanked Chloe’s mom before heading up the stairs. She’d been in this house a thousand times – it was second nature to find the room that Rosie stayed in, when she was over from the future. That was another thing – Andy had to know, now. The combination of the dream vision of Nat and the fact that the civilians had turned against the senshi… well, did Rosie know anything? Was that why she was back?

Knocking on Rosie’s door, Andy called through it: “Hey Rosieposie! It’s Andy. How you doing? Can I come in?” Sure, it was hardly the time for her singsong voice – but Andy didn’t want to slouch in like a thunder storm. Might as well bring a cheery air with her, even if her head throbbed and her mind reeled.

Rosalind’s shoulder hurt. Well, that was to be expected seeing as someone had thrown something hard at her this afternoon and managed to land the blow. She hadn’t seen what it had been—she had been too preoccupied with what the people had been saying to her—but from the way it felt now, it had most likely been a brick or something along those lines. The first thing she had done after getting home and going up to her room was peel off her shirt and taking a look at just how bad her shoulder was. By that time, it had already turned the yellowish green of a bad bruise in the process of getting worse. This would take a while to heal, even for her. But it was far from the first time something like this had happened to her and she could manage to work through it. Injuries like this came with the territory of being a senshi. At least she hadn’t broken anything this time around. With all the time she had spent crawling on the ground this afternoon, it was a wonder no one had stepped on her in just the right way to do a lot more damage than give her a little bruise. She had been very lucky today all things considered. Bruises and scrapes would heal in time. What really hurt were her feelings.

What was happening to the world? When Rosalind had first arrived back in the present a year ago now (it was hard to imagine that it had been that long already!), she had been confident that the enemy they were about to fight would be the same as the ones that had come before it. It would be a hard battle, but they would win eventually and they would go back to their normal lives until the senshi were needed again. However, that couldn’t have been further from the truth. Everything was different. The shitennou were here. The enemy had been her own grandmother’s sister. Natalie was… dead. Rosalind’s family was dead, her home destroyed. And now, the earth had turned on the senshi. Everything had changed this year. It didn’t seem possible after everything the girls had done to protect the planet, but the people in front of the palace had made their intentions very clear today. The senshi were no longer welcome. If they had had a chance, Rosalind was positive that the people had crowded around her, screaming for her blood, would have killed her. They would have killed any of the senshi they could have gotten their hands on, especially Sailor Cosmos. Luckily that hadn’t happened and everyone had managed to escape relatively unharmed, but this marked some sort of changing point. Nothing was the same anymore. Rosalind’s world had been shattered when she had returned to the future after Raven had been destroyed. But after the fight today, it felt like whatever remnants that had managed to stay intact had been smashed as well. She was confused. Doubtful. Scared. Heartbroken all over again for the second time in less than a month. If something like today happened again, it would be her duty to protect the people of earth. But how could she do that if they hated Sailor Moon? Rosalind Scott by herself was only a nineteen year old girl. She couldn’t do anything on her own…

When Andy came to call on her, Rosalind was in her room, a blanket draped around her shoulders as she sat on her bed with her knees pressed up against her chest. She was pressing an icepack to her injured side as she stared out the window. She had been sitting there for hours now, enveloped in her own thoughts, but she had no desire to move or do anything else. She needed to sort out her thoughts… figure out what was going on. Why did the people of earth suddenly hate the senshi so much? Why had they gone out of their way to gather and start a mob just to prove how much they wanted to senshi to leave? They had hurt themselves and then the senshi had hurt them trying to get away! The sight of Priya hitting the man over the head with the pole played over and over in her mind. Everything was wrong. They were never supposed to raise their hands against humans. But today those humans had attacked them…

The knock on the door startled Rosalind out of her thoughts and she hurriedly pulled the blanket further over her shoulder to hide the mark. Mama Cole couldn’t see what was wrong. It would cause too many problems, the likes of which she couldn’t bare to add to her already long list. However, she relaxed at the sound of Andy’s voice as unexpected as it might have been. “Come in!” Noticing that the room had grown dark in the past few hours, she hurriedly turned on the lamp next to her bed. She smiled a little as the older girl ended the room. “Hey. I’m fine. How about you?” The last time she had seen Andy, the girl had had blood dripping down her face. She was the one that really deserved the concern.

As irate as Andy was about the whole situation… she would cope. It was what she did. Andy was a survivor through and through, and okay so she’d had some little blips involving great emotional upheavals… but for the most part, Andy could take a licking and keep on ticking. She might bitch and moan if the others did, and let her temper reign free when she could… but she couldn’t shut down and close herself off. She’d tried that before, directly after Nat’s death – and that had lead to numerous explosions and a series of killer hang overs. It hadn’t been pretty, or particularly pleasant: and besides, now she had something else to worry about.

She was pregnant.

Oh, how she was going to hate facing Crispy the next time she saw him… which, she supposed, would be sometime later that night. It was just her luck that something like this would happen while she was pregnant: what ever happened to that time of peace? They’d had five years of it last time – this time around, they barely had a month! If Andy hadn’t been pregnant and hadn’t been dealing with the problems associated with being a superhero whilst pregnant… well, she’d be totally game for it. Yes, they were civilians, and yes, she didn’t know at the moment how she would even deal with it… but she’d find a way. Sailor Jupiter was a creature of the battlefield, and she’d find a way to make the fight work for her… even if she had to get over her reluctance to beat up civvies that thought they could take her.

Andy had already been losing that reluctance at Westminster.

Hearing Rosie’s call to come in, Andy pushed open the door in time to see the redhead twist and turn on the lamp beside the bed. That was odd – had she been sleeping? Blinking slightly, Andy let the door close behind her and took a moment to look over her charge. Or one of her charges. Or… something. “I’m sorry – were you sleeping?” she decided to ask, though the question was laced with Andy’s almost natural laughter; her ability to make anything seem like a joke. Such as the subject of Rosie sleeping at an hour that Andy apparently deemed to early… even for the baby of the bunch.
There were warning signs, of course – but Andy was choosing to ignore those. If Rosie had not been sleeping and simply been sitting in the darkening room… that was not a good sign. The way she had been sitting in the moments that Andy had entered; it wasn’t very… Rosie like. Still… Andy didn’t want to think that Rosie was suffering to that extent. Things were hard… but not that hard, right?

Oh, if only she knew the half of it.

“What, this?” Andy grinned her lopsided grin, motioning vaguely to the cut on the side of her head; “come on, Rosieposie, you know it’d take more than that to get to me.” And that was the truth. No civilian was going to slow down Sailor Jupiter, dammit. She hoped she’d made her point to them clear! Sitting down on the edge of Rosie’s bed, she looked over at the younger girl with a slow smile. How was she supposed to approach this? Andy wasn’t really good at beating around the bush – her style in everything tended to be a bit more ruthless than that. “You sure you’re alright?” she asked a little softer, tilting her head and watching Rosie for any sort of visible response. “I mean,” she continued a little clumsily – God, Andy did not do finesse – “you came back to use and all. Which is great, you know we all love you. But… er. Well, what’s up?”

God, she was going to be the worst mother ever.

And she was supposed to be the maternal one!!

Had Rosalind been sleeping when Andy had come in? She shook her head. No, she hadn’t been sleeping. However, she couldn’t help but wish at least a little that she had been. Ever since she had come back from the future, sleep had been evading her. During the times when she did finally manage to drift off, her dreams were almost always filled with the horrible sights of what she had encountered during her brief trip back to the future. As a result, she was always tired these days. However, she was yet to decide if that was really from the lack of sleep or if it was just a side effect of what she was feeling. Granted, now that it had been nearly a month since her return, Rosalind was starting to get more sleep as her mind finally calmed and let her begin what could only be some sort of healing process. She was feeling better and beginning to move on with her life. Work was a good distraction and the more she returned to her usual life, the better she knew she would feel. Still, she had a long way to go before she could fully shake off the exhaustion that had enveloped her these past weeks and today had certainly not helped. The nightmares of Crystal London had begun to fade… but would they be replaced by nightmares of today’s riot now? Rosalind caught the joke in Andy’s voice and usually she would have joked back. But today she just smiled and answered with the truth. “Nah. I was thinking and I guess I lost track of the time. It was light when I sat down,

It was nice to know that Andy didn’t think her injury was anything to worry about, but it still had looked pretty serious at the time. “Andy, the last time I saw you, your face was covered in blood,” she pointed out. “You definitely got the worst of it this afternoon,” She didn’t think she had seen anyone else bleeding, at least not any more than a little cut here or there. However, even Rosalind in her pensive state couldn’t resist Andy’s joking for long. Truthfully, the older girl’s lighter attitude felt good after spending so much time thinking in silence to herself. “Check out the souvenir I got,” Pulling the ice pack away from her skin with a sigh of relief (God, it was cold!), Rosalind slipped the blanket down her shoulder so that Andy could see the yellow of the bruise on her shoulder. Good thing it was still the middle of winter. If it was the summer, she’d have hated to have to explain to everyone she encountered why she was wearing long sleeves. “See? Nothing compared to yours,” It really was the truth, even if Andy didn’t think her cut was a big deal. It was on her head. If it had been any bigger or in a different place, things might have turned bad quickly. Andy, just like the rest of the girls today, had been lucky.

The silence that followed was comfortable. It was nice to have a friend with her, especially since Rosalind hadn’t seen Andy since the day she had left for the future. It had been too long. Really, she needed to see all the girls at some point soon. She had been playing the recluse too long. She couldn’t spend the rest of her life hiding between Chloe and Jack. She hadn’t even done that when she had first come to the present all those years ago. Then the question came again. Was she alright? Was it that obvious that she wasn’t? Rosalind shrugged. “I don’t think any of us are fully alright after what happened this afternoon,” But apparently that wasn’t what Andy had been trying to get at. She wanted to know why Rosalind was back in the present again, having returned less than a day after leaving for her home. Had Chloe really not told anyone? It was kind of impressive for the blond, but Rosalind couldn’t understand why she had done it. Wouldn’t everyone want to know why she was back? Wouldn’t Chloe see it as her duty to let everyone know if Rosalind didn’t want to do it herself? It wasn’t like Rosalind had asked her to keep the news to herself. In fact, she had assumed Chloe would share it would everyone at the soonest possible moment. Clearly she had been wrong.

Sighing quietly, Rosalind placed the ice pack back on her shoulder and pulled her blanket back up as she turned her gaze to the night sky outside her window. “When I got back to the future, there was nothing left. The city was destroyed, even the palace… And everyone was dead,” The words were quiet, almost like she was stating a basic fact and not explaining her home’s destruction. But she had already cried as much as she could and while she felt the deep pang of sadness in her chest that came with the realization every time, she couldn’t manage to vocalize it, not right now at least.

“That must have been some think,” Andy said quietly as Rosie explained that she had not, in fact, been sleeping. Thinking… thinking was never good! Well, not after a situation like today anyway. You just couldn’t over think these things – and God knows what Rosie was thinking. She’d never known the red head to be particularly down or depressed or mopey: that wasn’t entirely in her character… how coud it be, with a mother like Chloe? To see Rosie visibly… wrong was so very strange; Andy only wanted to get to the bottom of it. To make it all better and to promise Rosie that whatever was occupying her mind, it would all work out in the end.

Okay, so maybe she was made to be a mother, after all.

Still… Andy wouldn’t push. Not so abruptly, anyway. What Rosie wanted to say was what Rosie wanted to say. Sure, Andy could be needling about information at times: but that was mostly stuff like ‘which guy do you think is hot?’ and ‘did you really have sex on the hood of his car?’ But this was… decidedly more serious. It was tiptoe time and she didn’t want to push Rosie too far and upset her: clearly, something was doing that well enough without her help.

Shaking her hand vaguely at Rosie as if brushing off her comment, Andy shrugged. A blow to the head by some crazed civilian was not the worst injury she had ever sustained. Besides her various mortal wounds she had obtained prior to death, there was a whole host of other injuries that Andy had obtained. That Gargoyle monster had, after all, nearly taken her and Mars straight out. “Yeah well, it could be worse. At least I still have my pretty face,” she managed to laugh, happy expression turning into a wince when Rosie showed off her bruise. “Ow,” the brunette sympathised. Rosie’s bruise really did look painful – and it made Andy a little guilty that she hadn’t been there to turn the blow. Rosie was a Moon Princess (er, sort of,) after all.

Listening to Rosie talk about how none of them were okay, Andy nodded her agreement. Wasn’t that the truth. The fact that the civilians that had once loved them so much to run various merchandising lines after them and even give Priya her own video game… well, come on, where did the flip come from? It was bizarre, and Andy didn’t know whether to flip straight back and start hating them all… or be sad, because clearly they were all bipolar morons. “Well, yeah,” admitted with a half a shrug… but just as Rosie thought, that wasn’t what Andy was angling at. After all, she knew that no one was all right after that – how could they be? But she wanted to know more. She wanted to know what had sent Rosie back into her life after the redheads departure for the future: she wanted to know why Rosie was spending her evening sitting alone on her bed… thinking.

What Andy hadn’t expected, was anything about Rosie’s story.

The future couldn’t be destroyed – they’d defeated Raven. Nat had died in the run up to the battle; but they had done it. Chloe had sent Raven packing and… that should be that. The future should have been safe and restored as if Raven had never existed – or something. This time travel stuff was still confusing, but Andy was sure that the last time they had obliterated a villain from the future, Rosie’s timeline had been restored to its proper glory. If the future was destroyed… there was nothing left. Throwing an arm around the small redhead, Andy pulled Rosie close in a one armed hug. “Oh, Rosie…” Andy sighed, surprised to hear the breaking of her own voice, surprised to feel the constriction of her throat.

If the future was gone, there was nothing. They had already fought and defeated the being that was supposed to have destroyed it in the first place. If there was nothing left… what was the point? Her dreams of Crystal London. Her life. Crispy.

Her child.

A chill ran down her spine and Andy clenched her jaw tight.

Fucking hormones.

It had been some think. Andy was right about that much. But Rosalind had been doing a lot of thinking lately. How could she not when she had been so sure she was going home less than a month ago only to find herself in the present again for the worst possible reason? She missed her home. She missed her family. And right now there was nothing she could do about it. Still, Rosalind had to admit that the situation had become a little more bearable lately. She doubted she would ever fully get over it, but at least now she could do more than just sit around in her room. She was starting to feel better all around thanks to the help of Chloe, Jack, and the Coles. Yesterday she had gone out with friends and she was back at work. Today she had even fought as Sailor Moon again!... But that was a problem in itself and the reason why she had reverted back to sitting alone in her room and thinking tonight. What had happened today to make the people of earth hate the senshi so much?! That had done nothing but work to protect them from the forces of evil that tried to take over the earth. But today they had wanted to kill them. Rosalind had seen and experienced a lot in her time, but she had never imagined that her own people would present themselves as the enemy. How were they supposed to react to that? “I have a lot to think about these days,” Like what had just happened this afternoon. And whether or not she had a chance to save her home anymore.

Rosalind smiled a little and nodded as Andy made the joke about her face. Yes, it was true. There had been a lot of blood during the fight, but now that the cut was cleaned and covered, it really didn’t look too bad. For all anyone would know, Andy had simply banged her head on something by accident during the course of the day and that had been it. “You’re right. But I’m just glad you’re okay,” A thought popped into Rosalind’s head—at least Andy hadn’t pulled a Chloe and done a face plant or something during the battle. Then that pretty face of hers really would look pretty bad. But Rosalind kept the thought to herself. It somehow didn’t feel like the right time to be making jokes like that. She wasn’t in the mood to add that much to the festivities (or lack there of). The smile was enough for now. And she continued to smile as Andy sympathized with her over her bruise. “I’ve had worse,” she said, mirroring Andy’s words as she shrugged and pulled the blanket back over her shoulder. They all had had worse than they had received today. A bruise would heal in time and until it did, Rosalind could manage. If she couldn’t, she could always just go to Jack and ask him to heal it for her. That was an option she didn’t like to depend on too often though. Jack would happily help her in a heartbeat—she knew that. But she didn’t want to be dependent on him or anyone. She was nineteen, half way to twenty. She could stand on her own and she no longer needed to be babied.

Rosalind couldn’t say she was angry with the people who had attacked her today. Confused and hurt? Certainly. But never angry. These were her people and she had been born to protect and lead them, no matter what. She and the senshi would find out what had happened and then they would do what they could to clear up the misunderstanding. She just hoped they could do that soon and she prayed that there wouldn’t be another riot like today’s. Clearly today had proved that Sailor Moon’s appearance would do more harm than good in another mob scene generated by hatred for the senshi. But Rosalind Scott couldn’t do anything to help on her own, no matter how much she wanted to help. It was Sailor Moon who had the power to save people… It was a catch twenty two. That wasn’t all they had to think about tonight though. Now that Rosalind had given into Andy’s questions, the cat was out of the bag about the future. She sighed tired and slid her arms around Andy’s waist, returning the hug. “I keep trying to figure out where we went wrong, but I can’t find anything. What if there’s nothing we can do? What if the future’s just gone?” It was the worst case scenario and there were a hundred other explanations for why she had found the future in such a state. But after today, the darkest thoughts seemed like the most reasonable…

Ugh. She hated being so negative. She had been doing such a good job getting her life back on track and then today had had to happen. “Tell me something happy, Andy,

Andy couldn’t quite imagine what Rosie was thinking about; especially when she said she thought a lot these days. What of? It was only that day that everything went to hell… right? Before todays spazzing out of the civilians, the senshi had enjoyed a short time of peace. So… what was preying on Rosie’s mind? It made Andy think back again to the possible reasons for Rosie’s return to the current timeline. Not one of the scenarios was one that Andy particularly wanted to think of: who would? But maybe Andy w as just displaying a rare streak of pessimism. Maybe Rosie just wanted to stop on by and tell them…. Tell them that it was all fine and wonderful with rainbows and unicorns and cute fluffy bunnies?

Total. Idea. For. Mobile.

Snapping her head out of it – what the shit was wrong with her? – Andy focused again fully on Rosie. It was weird; ever since saying the words ‘I’m pregnant’ out loud to Crispy… it all became real. In the time between seeing the doctor and getting such shocking news and actually saying them out loud for real, Andy could deny it. Sort of. She could pretend, at least, that she wasn’t pregnant – conveniently backed up by the fact she didn’t quite look it yet. But, since admitting it, she found that things could easily remind her about her future child; things could make her stop and think about things… baby related. God, she was turning into one of those women. “I’m always okay,” Andy joked. It was sort of true – unless she was, you know, dead. Or stressing out over Nat’s death (and stressing was the most polite term possible for Andy’s actions.) The list went on, but mostly: Andy was okay. Or at least, pretended to be okay, thanks to her ability to endure things. “I know, but still! Ouch!” the brunette insisted when Rosie tried to pass off her injury as minor.

It was still bad that Rosie had gotten hurt at all.

Unlike Rosie, Andy could – very much – be angry with the people who had attacked them today. She had risked a lot to save their miserable hides and had honestly enjoyed Sailor Jupiter being looked up to, liked; she loved seeing kids dressed up as her for Halloween, and so on and so forth. That was the sort of reward the senshi deserved for what they did. They protected the innocent and Chloe, in particular, was all for love and justice. For the civilians that they protected from the psychopathic cosmic forces of outer space to turn on them like that? It was unforgiveable. Andy didn’t understand the reason for their sudden hate for the senshi, but she’d be damned if she was going to sit around and take it. Andy wasn’t sure if any of her lightening had hit a civilian when she was throwing it around to create a barrier – but some part of her would be pleased if her electricity had thoroughly shocked a rioter or two. Give them a lesson in what it meant to oppose the senshi.

Which made her sound a little bit evil but, what the hell.

Holding Rosie and listening to her, Andy could honestly say that she was worried. Worried about the fact that… if the future didn’t exist, then what was the point? If it was doomed to go down in fire and blood, was Crystal London really the utopia that Andy had been dreaming about since finding out it would exist? She didn’t want to voice these concerns to Rosie, of course – Andy didn’t want to make the girl feel worse. Rosie had lost her home and her true family; the future versions of themselves were the ones that Rosie had lived with, had grown up with… and no apparently, there was nothing they could do to give Rosie back her home. It wasn’t fair: they had lost Nat, and they had still lost the future.

Looking at Rosie once she demanded to be told something happy, Andy hesitated. What was happy? Very little had happened since they had lost Nat. Even defeating Raven had not been the happy occasion it should have been – and now Rosie was saying it was even worse than they thought. There was only one thing to do, then: and Andy wasn’t even sure it was entirely happy, given the current situation. “Well,” she ventured, a little bit awkwardly; “I’m pregnant. Does that count?”

Rosalind glanced towards Andy as she stated she was always okay. In the past it had been a true statement and it was true in the future Rosalind knew as well. After all, it was in Andy’s nature to take things in stride and keep a cheerful outlook on life. She was the protector of the group, more likely to help someone else through their hardships than suffer from her own (or at least let people see her suffer). However at the moment, there was no way in the world that Andy could possibly say she was always alright. Not after what had happened to Nat. Rosalind had gone through her own period of mourning when the fire senshi had died, but Andy had taken the event far, far worse to the point that she had grown destructive and had even thrown herself into drink. Rosalind had admittedly not seen her friend during the worst of the Jupiter senshi’s pain, but she had heard what was going on from Chloe and the other girls. Would it have helped if Rosalind had told the rest that Nat had known about her death for a long time and had been prepared for it when it had come? It was something she had debated with herself many times over the past few months. But she would never get her answer. A promise was a promise and she had sworn to Nat that she would keep her secret. No one would ever hear the truth from her. “Nat’s death is still hurting you though, isn’t it?” It was hurting them all in different ways most likely. But Andy had been hurt the worst and was probably still hurting more than the rest. She and Nat had been so close at the end…

If Rosalind had known Andy’s feelings about the people in the mob that day, she would have been sad. As senshi, they were supposed to protect the people of earth no matter what. For Andy to even think of hurting them, even after what they had done today… It was an idea Rosalind couldn’t quite wrap her mind around. After all, even before she had become Sailor Chibimoon, she had been raised to be a senshi and the earth’s next ruling monarch. As a child, every lesson she had been taught, every story she had been told had been to instill feelings of loyalty and devotion towards her people and loved ones. She had hero worshipped Sailor Moon and the senshi, cheering for them every time no matter how many times her father had told her the stories. Then she had joined the senshi at a young age herself and begun fighting for the earth as well. It was her duty to take care of these people, no matter what. Whatever had caused them such hatred today was only a blip on the radar to Rosalind. She had inherited her mother’s big heart and anything could be forgiven. They just needed to figure out the problems that had caused the people’s actions. If things came down to another riot like today’s and the senshi found themselves in the middle again, the only way to combat it would be not to fight. If the people of earth believed the senshi were harmful, they had to prove them wrong, not confirm their fears. They had to show them that they were peaceful and here to help, not to hurt. Fighting back was the exact opposite of what would help.

Rosalind sighed as Andy held her tight. Part of her felt the reassurance that the older girl was offering, but another part of her felt too empty to be comforted. She missed her parents and more than anything, she wanted to see them. Things had never seemed so hopeless before… But she was going to get through this! She couldn’t do anything to help if all she did was mope. Luckily, she didn’t have much time to reflect on the events. When Rosalind had asked Andy to tell her something happy, she had expected something along the lines of “I tried a new cookie recipe yesterday and they were delicious,” or “Blue and Red got into the dog food while I was out and when I got home the whole kitchen was covered in kibble.” What she got instead was far more surprising and unexpected. “What?!” She sat up straight, pulling herself out of her friend’s grasp in the process so that she could look at her face to face. “Seriously? You’re pregnant?” Assuming that Andy was happy about this, Rosalind was pretty sure it was the best news she had heard since… well, she didn’t know. It was amazing! And it was exactly what she had needed to take the gloominess out of her day. How could she possibly think about all the horrible things that were happening when Andy was going to have a baby?! “Congratulations!” Grinning, she threw her arms back around Andy, ignoring the protest in her shoulder. “Do you know if it’s a boy or a girl yet?” Either would be fine, but she kind of hoped it was a girl…

Nat’s death had been a rare break in Andy’s demeanour; a chink in her armour. She was good at withstanding a lot of inner turmoil; she’d sort it out later, when no one was watching. She cried just as much as your next person; she just preferred to do that sort of stuff alone. That wasn’t to say she was made of stone and didn’t emote in public: she just… preferred to do aforementioned emoting in a positive way, to bolster her friends spirits and raise them up high. What was the point of licking her own wounds, when there was so much more pain being bandied about her nearest and dearest?

The death of Sailor Mars had pushed Andy over the edge. She had not been able to contain her wroth in the slightest; her anger had been a livid, almost living thing. It was most unlike the tall brunette to lash out at the world around her, to put civilians – and perhaps even her friends – in danger, because of a selfish need to vent. Andy was no stranger to rage, of course; but normally, such a force could be channelled against her quarry, the enemy, whatever happened to be a good target for it. When Nat was ripped from her, that seething, electric rage had over spilled the boundaries and had become as uncontrollable as her dazzling element: yet she found it a little hard to feel the depths of guilt she should. She felt a little funny about her attempt to apparently physically drown her sorrows in alcohol – but was that because it was a sickening thought, or because now she knew she had been pregnant? She felt that she should feel extremely bad for striking down what felt like half of the city in what was essentially a serious mother fucking tantrum… but honestly, Andy was still pretty sure that that was what Nat would do.

As Rosie brought up Nat’s death, Andy shifted the slightest bit – and that spoke more volumes than any words could. The sudden look of discomfort; the echo of pain flurrying in those dark green eyes – it didn’t matter that Andy was trying to be strong as sh e always tried to be; anyone who knew her could see those still raw wounds. “Yes,” she admitted, simply enough. What more could she say? Nat had been one of her best friends – Andy would venture to call her her best friend – and they hadn’t nearly shared enough time together, exploring that new bond they both had not been expecting. “I just miss her so much,” Andy told Rosie, in all truthfulness, in all honesty. There was really nothing more to say: there was no further depth to it, no nothing. Andy missed Nat with every single fibre of her being – and that was an impressive amount of being.

Andy hadn’t really known what sort of response to expect. Rosie, after all, was the first person that she had told – beside Crispy, of course. She wasn’t sure how any of the senshi would take it. Especially… well, things seemed to be a bit weird, what with the civilians apparently wanting to kill the senshi and all. And now she was going to throw in a pregnant Sailor Jupiter to the mix? Thankfully, Rosie just seemed to explode into ecstasy. After jarring herself out of Andy’s grasp, it was clear to see that the redhead was happy for her; excited even. That alone was infectious; and before she really knew what was happening she was grinning and nodding like a complete moron. “Yes, seriously!” she laughed; as if she would joke about this! That would just be cruel, and a little bit unusual. … and quite random. “Not yet. I don’t know which I’d prefer,” she added, thoughtfully. She really didn’t – both genders had their merits, though Andy thought – perhaps as every woman did – that Crispy would prefer a boy. “I’m about three months along.”

No one blamed Andy for the way she had reacted to Nat’s death. After all, everyone had all dealt with the blow in their own way. They had all lost a friend and a comrade and had needed to mourn accordingly. For Rosalind, she had experienced waves of overwhelming guilt along with her sadness. Nat had entrusted her with a secret and Rosalind could have used that knowledge to save her life. Instead, she had failed, not even suspecting that something might be wrong when Nat hadn’t showed up for the meeting that night. Rosalind couldn’t say whether she could have saved her friend’s life if she had been there when Martian Doom had attacked, but at least she could have tried to help. Instead in the end, the fire senshi had died alone. It was unfair and it was unbelievable, but it had happened and there was nothing any of them could do about it now, not even Chloe. With a realization like that, it really was no surprise that Andy had reacted by going off the handle. They had all felt the loss but Andy had probably felt it more than anyone else (apart from Alex of course) seeing as she had grown the closest to the other girl over that past few months. Losing a best friend in such a manner and then realizing the Silver Crystal couldn’t do anything to reverse it… Andy was a physical person. Of course her reaction would be expressed physically as well.

Rosalind realized it had probably been wrong to mention Nat’s death as soon as she registered Andy’s reaction. Of course it was still hurting Andy. It was still hurting them all (and it would for the rest of their lives). She hadn’t had to ask to know how Andy would respond. The mood in the room was already dark after what had happened that day and after the news Rosalind had just told Andy. Now it was twice as dark. “I miss her a lot too,” Rosalind said quietly. She would give anything in the world to get Natalie back, but unfortunately, that was an impossibility. If the Silver Crystal couldn’t do it, nothing could. They would just have to keep going without her… somehow.

However, Andy’s completely unexpected news changed the atmosphere in the room entirely. Andy was pregnant?! She was going to have a baby? How amazing was that?! Rosalind couldn’t have been more thrilled with the news if she had tried. If Andy had a baby, it would be like having a cousin. All throughout her childhood in Crystal London, Rosalind had always wished her adoptive aunts had had children of their own. She loved Diana dearly and the cat would always be her best friend, but the more friends, the happier Rosalind always was. Plus, any child of the senshi’s would automatically understand her because they would have grown up in the same situation. Not many people knew what it was like to have parents who saved the world on a daily basis. Or you know, ruled it. Plus, they would live in the palace and be there at all the court events like Rosalind was. They would even go to school together if they were around the same age and God knew that Rosalind had needed a few more friends in grade school. Of course, if Andy had a baby now, her child wouldn’t be anywhere near Rosalind’s age here in the present or in the future, but that didn’t matter. Age gap or not, they would still be close, she was sure of it. Senshi kids had to stick together after all. “I’m so happy for you!” She truly was.

Rosalind wasn’t particularly surprised when Andy said she didn’t know the sex of her baby yet. After all, she never would have guessed that Andy was pregnant to begin with if the older girl hadn’t mentioned it first. So that meant that she couldn’t have been more than a month or so along, right? Something like that probably. Rosalind couldn’t exactly claim to be an expert on pregnancy seeing as Andy would be the first of her friends to have a baby and she was an only child. “A girl would be so much fun!” she cooed happily. “Maybe she’d turn into Sailor Chibi Jupiter when she gets older!” The name sounded funny on her lips, but it didn’t seem out of the realm of possibility. Rosalind had started as Sailor Chibi Moon when Chloe had still been Sailor Moon. So if Andy still held her position as Jupiter and her daughter became a senshi, that would be her obvious senshi title, right? But apparently Andy wasn’t as early in her pregnancy as Rosalind had originally imagined. She stared at Andy in shock when she said she was already three months along. “No way!” That was already a third of the way through the pregnancy and Andy still looked no different than she ever had! It was impossible to believe but there was no reason not to believe her. The world just worked in funny ways. Rosalind couldn’t help herself. She put a hand on Andy’s stomach and grinned at her. “This is so exciting! Have you told Crispy yet?” She had to have told him already, but it seemed like the sort of question she should ask. “Is he excited too?

It was probably a good thing that both Rosie and Crispy were keeping their respective mouths shut about knowing that Nat had seen her own death in her flames. Andy would probably not react well to that. Rosie might be the future princess and so would receive a blank look of pain and sorrow – Crispy would feel the brunt of that a little more. To Andy, keeping that secret – ironically – would be viewed as betrayal. They knew! They knew and they didn’t tell her! How could anything be more painful?

But, as said, the secret was not out.

Nat was dead and Andy - although far from over that fact – was learning how to struggle on with life. It was what Andy did; throw up the shields once more and sink back into some semblance of her former life. Of course, that probably would have been a little bit easier to do had she not been pregnant – but hey, what can you do? Every day, Andy was aware that Nat was missing, that there was a part of her soul that had been torn away… but she needed to live. The baby in her belly bolstered her need to carry on: sure, she would still fling herself recklessly into any sort of senshi-related madness… but her maternal drive to support her child kept her strangely sane. Maybe it was the fact she was pregnant that was keeping her from relapsing into mourning for Nat in the way that Andy mourned best. The knowledge that she had to be a little careful, if the alternative was pointless self destruction: fighting for the greater good was still ranking just above all common, and maternal, sense.

As Rosie went off telling Andy just how much fun a girl would be, Andy smiled. Yes, a girl would be fun. A girl to take after Andy; a girl that was so full of complex contradictions that the room would have to be blue striped with pink, or pink striped with blue. A little baby girl to wrap Crispy around her little finger and - well, the image was just so cute that the brunette laughed out loud, coming out of her reverie to hear Rosie talk about Sailor Chibi Jupiter. Blinking, Andy could honestly say she’d never thought of that. “Does it work like that?” she asked in earnest, eyes wide with the thought. That would be so cool! She knew that Rosie had been Chibi Moon – obviously – before Chloe got super charged. But… the Moon had always been special, the royal family set that little bit apart from the rest of them – would Andy’s power transfer in the same way? Andy had to admit – that would be awesome. A little lightning bug to teach and train all she knew; her child could embrace Andy’s life in every aspect.

Her child could learn what it was to be Jovian.

The thought made her smile; though she didn’t want to get her hopes up. Firstly, she didn’t even know if she was having a girl or a boy, and secondly… well, the planets power worked differently to the Moon. The part of her that was still Druella would long to know the joy of raising her child ‘the Jovian way’ - but somehow she doubted it would be smiled upon to have her send her child, son or daughter, out into the woods for their coming of age test. No; she’d have social services on her ass faster than lightning (no pun intended.) Then again, if Chloe was in charge by then…

The possibilities were endless, but really, Andy was getting way ahead of herself. Yes, she was Jovian by heritage and still held her rank with pride – but this was a child that was part of the Earth: born on the Earth to an Earthling father. It was more likely the child would grow up to not fully realise her Jovian half.

“Way,” Andy grinned at Rosie’s exclamation: she knew very well that she didn’t look far along at all. Luck, she supposed – it gave her longer to prep herself before she told her team-mates. “Of course I did!” Andy laughed once more; “I told him almost as soon as I found out,” she assured her red-headed young friend. As if she could have kept her pregnancy from Crispy; that would have been a little harsh. “I’m moving in with him,” she added as an afterthought, though with noticeable pride. “I think he is excited. It’s weird though. I mean… I’m gonna be a mother. And Crispy is gonna be a father! Mental or what, right? Say… you wanna babysit for us?” she asked Rosie with a lopsided grin; a look that was oh so natural on Andy’s casual face. “Cause we’re still gonna want, you know, date night.. If you know what I meaaaan…!”

Rosalind probably knew that if Andy ever found out that she had known about Natalie’s death ahead of time, the older girl would never forgive her. Still, she had never given it much thought because it had nothing to do with the real reason why she was keeping the fact from everyone. Natalie had made her promise not to tell the others. Yes, she had fought against the request, hoping that Natalie might reconsider and confide in her friends, but in the end she had agreed. And if there was anything Rosalind was good at, it was keeping secrets. She had proved that as a child with Helios and she was proving it again with Natalie now. No one would find out Natalie’s secret from her and seeing as far as she knew she was the only one Natalie had confided in, her secret would forever be safe. It was the least Rosalind could do for her friend after not being able to protect her as she had promised. It was clear Andy wasn’t over their comrade’s death and how could she be? She had grown so close to Natalie over the months before her death and Rosalind doubted any of the senshi would truly ever get over the loss let alone the one closest to the Martian senshi. It was true the girls had grown apart lately, but they had still been through so much together over the years. As for Rosalind, she had lost a friend and a mentor and had been left with a sense of guilt and the realization that even if she were to save the future again, nothing would fix the changes that not having Natalie around would bring. But these days the pain she felt for losing Natalie was mixed with the pain of losing her home and family. She had lost everything she had known and sooner or later she would have to leave the life she had here behind as well. And then what would happen to her?

But now wasn’t the time to lapse back into melancholy. Andy was having a baby! Seeing as none of the senshi had children in the future, the news had taken Rosalind completely by surprise. But things were already changing now that the shitennou had come back into the picture and what a good change this was! Rosalind would finally have the cousin she had always dreamed of! Granted, the girl or boy would be completely grown up by the time Rosalind was actually born, but it was still exciting! If Andy had a boy, it would be kind of like having a grown up big brother. But if Andy had a girl… She and Diana would have so much fun! She paused as Andy asked about Chibi Jupiter. Did it work like that? It was a good question. “I don’t know, she admitted truthfully. “I’m the only one so I couldn’t tell you for sure. And I technically already have a team of senshi that’ll protect me one day…” She hadn't seen Vesta, Ceres, Pallas, and Juno since they had been released from their servitude in the Dark Moon Circus, but one day they would reappear when they were truly ready to take on the responsibility of their senshi status. They had promised it would be when Rosalind herself became a full-fledged senshi and here she was now as Sailor Moon. That meant they would come soon, right? Rosalind could only hope. She loved the inner and outer senshi dearly, but it would be nice to have her own friends who were her own age that could fight along her side. No matter how powerful she became, she knew she would never fully be a member of Cosmos’s group. After all, she hadn’t been there from the beginning with them. “That doesn’t necessarily mean there couldn’t be a Chibi Jupiter though,” It was true. Anything was possible when it came to the senshi. Well, almost anything.

It was hard to believe that Andy could already be three months pregnant. Three months! That was already a third of the way through! She didn’t look like she was pregnant at all! “When did you find out?” It couldn’t have been that long ago… probably. Who knew! And of course she had told Crispy already. He was the father after all. Rosalind’s grin grew as Andy told her that she was going to move in with Crispy. “This is so great, Andy! Congratulations!” She really was happy for her. How could she not be with such amazing news. Rosalind nodded enthusiastically at the offer of babysitting. “Yes!” Of course she would babysit for Andy! She loved kids! Still, he made a face at the reason Andy added. “Too much information!

Andy knew what Rosie was going through. Well, sort of, anyway. No, Andy had not had her entire world ripped from her and sent spiralling downwards, but she had still gone through a series of losses in her life. It had started with her parents, then her grandmother, and now Nat. The warrior princess of Jupiter was prone to having things she loved – people she loved – taken away from her without a moments notice. Rosie’s loss was greater than Andy’s own, of course: Rosie had not just lost her family, but all of her friends, and her home – her time. It was such a dramatic loss that the brunette was proud of the little redhead she so affectionately treated like a child. Proud that Rosie was strong enough not to just… follow them, so to speak. It took so much courage to even carry on existing when the world seemed to hate you so: and Rosie was definitely existing. She wasn’t even curled and locked in a dark room somewhere; she was carrying on with life (albeit, with perhaps a larger tendency to brood than she’d previously had.)

The topic change seemed to be doing good for the both of them. Andy’s child was a source of mixed emotions: of intense love and excitement, but also fear and anxiety. Now with things happening again, it was looking even less likely that this was going to be one hundred percent problem free. No matter what Crispy said (or what the girls would probably say when she told them,) she would carry on her duties as Sailor Jupiter for as long as she felt she needed to do them. But, talking with Rosie about the child growing within her – it blew all the negatives, the worry, straight away. With Rosie, there could only ever be the good in a situation. The light and the hope and the laughter: in that way (and so many others,) she was so much like Chloe that it surprised Andy that other people couldn’t see it.

Cousins. Yeah. Right.

Andy nodded slowly as Rosie reminded her that she did indeed already have her own team out there, somewhere. She remembered them, oh yes. She remembered how irritating and entirely batshit crazy the whole group were – Andy could only imagine what they would be like as senshi. Still, maybe that was a little bit harsh… or perhaps a little bit of motherly jealousy at the fact that a rank she wanted for her child was taken by some Amazonian ho. She raised an eyebrow slightly as Rosie tried to appease her with the thoughts that maybe there could be a Sailor Chibi Jupiter, regardless. “That’s a lot of senshi to have on one little planet,” she pointed out wryly. Still – there was always hope. Being a senshi for so long had taught her that. And besides. The times were changing, quite literally, and who knew what would be in store for the lot of them. “Wouldn’t it be cool, though? I could give her my spear like you have Chloe’s old scepters.” Okay, that was seriously thinking ahead, but – well – Andy was definitely a dreamer.

Even when Nat was dead and the world apparently wanted her head.

Three months was a terribly long way through a pregnancy. “About two weeks ago,” she told Rosie with a smile, spreading a hand over her stomach thoughtfully. “So the kids already been to battle. Cool, right?” Cool, terrifying – Andy’s thoughts on how she treated her body during the earliest parts of her pregnancy flip-flopped depending on her mood. Her mood which would probably start flip-flopping a lot in itself soon… another scary thought. Grinning at the expression that crossed Rosie’s face once she realised what Andy had said, the older woman laughed. “Hardly. I could go into waaaaay more detail. And you know me, Rosieposie my dear, that is entirely not a bluff.”

Poor kid was gonna be traumatised by the time it was eight!

Was Rosalind strong? In the past she would have enthusiastically agreed with this statement. Of course she was strong! She was the princess and future queen of Crystal London, not to mention the warrior Sailor Moon! She had been trained to protect her planet since childhood and had fought against numerous enemies over the years. Moreover, she was the only one Pluto trusted enough to give a time key to and of course just to top things off, she was all grown up now, no matter what anyone said. But these days, Rosalind wasn’t sure how strong she really was anymore. All of her reasons for her to feel strong were still valid. She was still Sailor Moon and she could still fight. But the loss of her family made her feel mentally exhausted almost all the time and a far cry from strong. These days she felt more like sitting in her room than fighting—not that she would ever miss a fight for such a reason though. She still had a duty to the people of earth no matter how she was feeling and nothing would ever change that. Luckily though, Rosalind had to admit that things were finally getting better for her. The overwhelming weight of grief had lifted from her shoulders some time ago and she was feeling more hopeful than she had in a while. The future wasn’t set in stone. There was always a chance that they could fix it. Everything would be alright… hopefully.

And it was because of that hope and healing that Rosalind was able to completely put her troubles away and celebrate with her friend the moment as Andy told her the good news. Andy was going to have a baby! How amazing was that?! Rosalind didn’t have much experience with infants, but she loved kids, so she was thrilled for Andy. And the idea of having a Chibi Jupiter really was cool! Rosalind might have already had a team of senshi waiting for her somewhere out there, but the more senshi there were, the better it was, right? Crystal London had to be safe! And it made enough sense that any daughter of Andy’s could become a senshi as well. The power of Jupiter had to go somewhere. “The moon has two senshi,” Rosalind pointed out. “And it’s not even a planet! If you think about it that way, I don’t see why Jupiter having two as well would be a problem,” The Silver Crystal had simply split to create the Pink Moon Crystal when it had been needed. Who said any of the senshi’s crystals wouldn’t do the same given the right circumstances? Rosalind laughed as Andy sighed over the idea of giving her child her old spear. “Take it from me,” she said, grinning. “No matter how you’re your spear is, if you have a daughter she’s going to want her own attacks,” Chloe’s attacks were powerful and Rosalind was more than appreciative that she could use them now. But they’d always be Chloe’s first and foremost and that was one of a hundred reasons why people kept treating her like she was less than the rest of the senshi. She had used to have her own attacks! No one else had been able to call Helios! Helios…

But Andy wasn’t done telling her story yet. “Only two weeks? Wow!” This was certainly new news then! Rosalind felt privileged that Andy would tell her something like this so quickly! “Are you even over the surprise yet?” She was pretty sure she wouldn’t be if she was in Andy’s place. Having a baby was a big deal, especially when it was a surprise like this. Andy and Crispy hadn’t even been dating that long either! Rosalind couldn’t remember when they had started going out exactly but it couldn’t have been more than a year before. And now they were having a baby and moving in together! Andy seemed happy though, so that was all that mattered in the end. However, Rosalind couldn’t help but frown a little when Andy pointed out that the baby had already been to battle. She hadn’t thought of it that way until now… “I’m not sure if cool would be the word I’d use,” she admitted a little reluctantly. “What if something happened?” Her eyes flickered to the bandage on Andy’s forehead. Something like that wouldn’t be enough to hurt a baby but they both knew that far worse could happen in battle if given the chance.

Rosalind was sure Andy could go into more detail. She was also sure any of the other girls could also go into plenty of detail about their love lives as well. But Rosalind didn’t want to hear it, even if—well, that was private. “I know, I know, but don’t!” she begged, laughing a little at the teasing. She rolled over onto her good side and hid her head in the pillows to prove her point. There were certain things in the world she didn't need to hear.

You couldn’t be an entire pessimist, and be a senshi. You couldn’t think that when one bad thing happened, it was game over. It was part of being a senshi – being able to… cope. And they all could, to varying degrees… and when they couldn’t cope, they had each other. No senshi could possibly, ever hope to survive if they couldn’t cope at all. And Rosie had proven that was strong – stronger than many of them in her handling of the future situation. Who cares if she wanted to curl up in bed and shut down her mind? The point was that she hadn’t. Rosie hadn’t succumbed to the easy way out of just letting life pass you by when things were wallowing in the dirt – she’d come out, she’d fought, she’d made them all proud.

Andy knew from experience that that was a hard thing to do.

But! This wasn’t about that now. This was about… what was to come. It was so appropriate, talking to Rosie about the future. Sure, Andy’s future would be different from the one that Rosie was from… but still. Whenever Andy thought of ‘future,’ she immediately thought of Rosie. What senshi couldn’t? The little princess had made such a powerful impact in their lives, right from her explosive and hilarious entrance into the present. Plus, Andy could totally freak out any present-day Rosie by telling her about all this stuff. Like ‘oh, you know, when you’re older, you date a horse.’ … okay, maybe not, because she didn’t want to traumatise the poor kid… but… well, if Andy got into a particular state of mind…

Maybe having her own child would reign her in a little.
Then again… maybe not.

“True,” Andy agreed when Rosie pointed out that the Moon had two senshi. “But the Moon has always had it’s own rules and whatnot,” she said, sighing. It was true – the senshi planet crystals were definitely different. If her potential daughter were to be a senshi, Andy didn’t know how that would happen. Would the crystal leave her body and find it’s new home in her daughter? Where would that leave Andy? Ugh! All these questions and she didn’t even know if she was having a daughter or a son. And they weren’t even questions that a normal mother would be asking. No, normal mothers would be wondering what age their kid would be walking and talking. Andy wondered at what age her kid could feel the joy of lightning singing through her veins; the exhilaration of her first battle.

Definitely not destined to be a normal family.

Andy laughed as Rosie decided to point out that her daughter would much prefer her own attacks. “Hey, come on, I’m trying to be sentimental here!” she complained. She liked the idea of having something to give a daughter, something that she could honestly say had been in their family for a long ass time. A family heirloom! Only dating back to when people lived on different planets and the Earth was boring in comparison because it didn’t have acid-spitting tree-otters. “If she did become Sailor Chibi Jupiter, I guess I could retire. Go back to Jupiter. Rule it.” She didn’t know what she thought of that. She loved Jupiter – it was her home, at the end of the day. But she belonged wherever Chloe was. “And I could send you all presents of those ridiculous shoes they all wore there.” If they still wore them.

Which, lets face it, they probably did. Being Jovians.

Shaking her head, Andy assured Rosie that she was most definitely not over the surprise. “Hell no! Sometimes it’s like it’s not even real. Like I dreamt it up to scare myself shitless. And then I realise it’s not, and I’m sort of scared, but also really excited. It’s all very confusing, I don’t know how Chloe did it. Er, will do it. Whatever, you know what I mean.” Stupid time travelling… stuff. Andy frowned as Rosie took a very similar stance to her battling whilst pregnant as Crispy had. “It didn’t,” she told her young friend vaguely, in a tone that suggested she was keen to leave that topic well behind.
