"You don't look too well," Zoisite said worriedly when they had returned to their bedroom, and Kunzite slumped down onto the bed.

"You know how badly the energy flows of Europe drain the energy when one tries to work magick, little rat," he sighed. "Unfortunately it was the best and safest way to shake off Endymion."

"I will take special care of you tonight," Zoisite promised and pulled off Kunzite's boots and uniform, before he took off his clothes as well.

*That's out of the question!* Nephrite screamed in Kunzite's mind.

*But I have my needs as well*, Kunzite declared. He was too tired for an angry reply.

*Me too*, Nephrite stated. *And I don't want to play the watcher while you amuse yourself with your little pet.*

*Then look somewhere else or go to sleep*, Kunzite thought gruffly.

Zoisite smiled at Kunzite and kissed him passionately.

*Either you let it be or you let me join the fun!*

*Pardon?!* Kunzite thought perplexed. *I refuse to let you participate. Zoisite is mine and mine alone.* He wrapped his arms possessively around the smaller man.

*I'm sorry to disappoint you, but it seems you have to share him with me at the moment.*

*I can't say I like this even a little bit.*

*I don't care.*

Kunzite sulked mentally, while he tried not to show anything outwardly. Zoisite didn't need to be aware of Nephrite's presence, it was bad enough that he felt him within his mind all the time.

Nephrite continued to nag around. He wanted to spoil them their fun as much as possible, but he had the impression that Kunzite tried actively to ignore him.

Zoisite continued to caress him tenderly, and Kunzite concentrated on the pleasant feelings. He only hoped that Nephrite wouldn't somehow get the revelation that Zoisite in fact was the most wonderful person in the world and thus get designs on him.

Suddenly someone knocked at the door.

Zoisite sighed and pulled the coverlet over Kunzite and himself.

"Yes?" Kunzite grumbled and pulled Zoisite close.

"It's me," Obsidian shouted cheerfully from the other side of the door.

"Come in." He wouldn't see anything he hadn't seen before, Kunzite thought.

Obsidian entered the bedroom. "Oh, you're already in bed," he discovered with amusement.

"Well, I'm a bit tired," Kunzite claimed.

"Shouldn't you better sleep then?"

"That's what I had in mind."

"Really? To me it looks more as if you intend to amuse yourself," he said. "What does Nephrite do at the moment?"

"Well, he doesn't amuse himself," Kunzite grinned. Zoisite giggled and decorated his throat with a nicely visible love bite.

"Somehow I can't understand that." Obsidian raised his eyebrows. "But if you prefer to play around right now, I can return tomorrow."

"Wait! First tell us why you're here," Kunzite demanded.

"I promised Zoisite."

"Oh?!" Kunzite looked questioningly at his beloved. "Is there something I should know, little rat?"

"Dunno," Obsidian said. "But I will only do it if he continues to be nice to me."

"Zoisite?" Kunzite frowned.

"It's not what you think, Lord Kunzite," he hurried to say.

"Sure?"

"What do you think?" Obsidian wanted to know.

"Well, I think that Zoisite is plainly irresistible, and I fear the worst." Kunzite played with a strand of his lover's long, coppery golden hair.

"Such naughty thoughts," Obsidian said amusedly and examined Zoisite. "But you're right of course."

Kunzite shot him a warning glance. "The little rat is mine!"

"If you say so."

"Indeed." Kunzite wrapped his arms demonstratively around Zoisite and held him really close.

"My Lord Kunzite," Zoisite panted, "I fear I need to breathe a little."

"Ooops! - Sorry, beloved."

Obsidian sat down on the edge of the bed and looked questioningly at Zoisite. "Yes or no?"

"Well, okay."

"When? Now?"

"The sooner the better," Zoisite declared. "I hate the idea of sharing Kunzite with anyone, but Nephrite is worst."

"I can understand that," Obsidian grinned. "Especially as Nephrite likes you so much, too."

Zoisite gave him a dark look.

"Then you may remove yourself from him," Obsidian said.

"Go away from Kunzite-sama? Why?"

"I'm sure you don't want to be the next host for Nephrite, do you?"

"No!" Zoisite jumped out of the bed. "How far do I have to go?"

"Go to the wall over there, that should suffice." He scrutinized the pretty young man thoroughly. Zoisite had alabaster skin, silky hair that spilled like liquid reddish gold over his shoulders down to his waist, and his large emerald eyes looked affectionately at Kunzite. "Cute," Obsidian commented.

"Don't look so lecherously at Zoisite," Kunzite said to Obsidian. Zoisite decided to play Lady Godiva and draped his hair around himself.

"Why not? He is pretty."

"Indeed." Kunzite eyed him dreamily. "But remember always that he's my personal property."

"Does he have a collar and license disc, too?"

"I already regret my promise," Zoisite grumbled.

"Yeah? Of course we can leave everything as it is."

"No! I want Kunzite-sama for me alone again. Pull Nephrite out of him! Now!"

"I have to think about it," Obsidian hesitated. "Who knows if you'll keep your promise."

"Well, I'll try to."

"That's not enough. You tried to kill me several times too often."

"If you think my promise isn't enough, anyway, then I can still kill you," Zoisite sulked.

"If you'll do that you'll be stuck in your little ménage à trois."

"Oh, no!" Zoisite looked longingly at Kunzite, while Obsidian watched the small man and waited for his decision.

"Please, do it and free Kunzite-sama from Nephrite!"

"And then you'll kill me at the next opportunity," Obsidian claimed. "Well, on the other hand, I have some more spells that I'd love to try out."

"What kinds of new spells?"

"Well, I could turn you into SailorMoon - permanently."

"Eeeeks!" Zoisite squeaked. "Everything, but not that!"

"We'll see. But now keep quiet and let me work." Obsidian went to Kunzite and looked thoughtfully. "What shall I take?"

*What does he have in mind?* Nephrite asked fearfully.

*He wants to free me from you, so that I can finally take care of my love again as it is proper.*

*I can't believe that he does it without any ulterior motives.*

*Zoisite had to promise him that he wouldn't try to kill him anymore.*

*But one can't trust Zoisite.*

*I trust him.*

*That's something different.*

Obsidian concentrated and recited the spell. Nephrite was pulled out of Kunzite who felt utterly relieved to be alone in his mind and body again. Then the violet-haired man started a second much more complicated formula. He felt how he was drained of his energy when the air started to flicker in a bright pink colour.

Kunzite and Zoisite watched the display above their bed with fascination. What was the light turning into?

Suddenly a large pink rabbit sat on the bed, and Obsidian didn't think twice, but conjured Nephrite's spirit and bound it to the animal. After he had completed the spell, Obsidian collapsed onto the floor and started to snore.

"A rabbit?" Kunzite almost doubled over when he realized what Obsidian had done.

"I see exactly the same," Zoisite giggled and jumped back into the bed, trying not to crush the pink animal. "Is Nephrite really gone?" He looked deeply into Kunzite's wonderful platinum coloured eyes as if he could discern whether there were one or two souls behind them.

"Yes, Zoisite, he's gone."

Suddenly a squeaky voice asked "Where am I?"

Kunzite laughed until his sides hurt. "Nephrite, you look really cute," he declared.

"Why?" Nephrite asked puzzled and tried to look at himself. What he saw was furry and bright pink.

Zoisite crawled towards the Nephrite-bunny and stroked the soft fur. "Nice. But why pink?"

"How could he do that to me?" Nephrite lamented. The responsible party lay on the rug and slept peacefully.

"Dunno." Kunzite couldn't stop laughing at the ridiculous picture his colleague represented. Nephrite scratched himself behind the ear with his hind paw and wondered how and why he did such a thing.

"I still don't believe it," he groaned. "Where's a mirror?"

"Over there." Zoisite lifted one shapely leg and pointed to the large mirror in front of the bed.

"I am a rabbit!" Nephrite squealed.

"Yeah, a large pink bunny," Kunzite chuckled.

Nephrite sat up on his hind legs and still watched his mirror image incredulously. "A bunny rabbit!"

"Could you please leave our bedroom now and come to terms with your new appearance in the living room? I have something to celebrate with Zoisite."

Nephrite tried to walk and fell onto his face.

"Try to lollop," Zoisite giggled and snuggled as close to Kunzite as possible, now that he had him all for himself again.

Nephrite hopped over the bed.

"Hey, that was my leg," Zoisite protested.

"And mine," Kunzite added.

"Don't grouse around, that's not so easy," Nephrite grumbled. Kunzite levitated the rabbit onto the floor.

"Thanks. I'm sure I'd have broken my neck jumping down."

"No problem." Zoisite opened the door telekinetically, and Kunzite levitated both the rabbit and Obsidian out of the room, before Zoisite closed the door again.

"And now let's enjoy our new found privacy," Kunzite grinned and turned his attention fully at Zoisite.

* * *

Nephrite lollopped through the corridor until he found an open room where he frustratedly lay down on the floor. Fine, now he had a body on his own again, but why had it to be a rabbit, and a pink one at that! Now he could only lollop around. Embarassed, he found that he suddenly strongly felt like eating carrots.

Jadeite who had come home with Obsidian, wandered through the house. He was hungry. He just decided to go downstairs to the kitchen to rob the refrigerator, when he passed a room with an open door where he spotted a large pink Angora rabbit on the floor.

He stopped, rubbed his eyes and looked again. It was a strangely coloured bunny. But he hadn't drunken anything in the entertainment complex, he thought.

Curiously, Jadeite stepped into the room to inspect the animal more closely. The rabbit looked at him questioningly.

'What did Jadeite want from him?' Nephrite wondered. He still felt like eating carrots, and the icebox was downstairs.

"You are a nice little bunny!" Jadeite went nearer. "I didn't know that Kunzite and Zoisite had pets."

"Don't you dare touch me," the rabbit hissed in a squeaky voice.

"You can talk!" Jadeite was perplexed.

"Of course I can talk. What did you think?"

"Well, except for two certain cats I haven't met many talking animals yet."

"I'm no animal!"

"Then what are you?"

"Don't you recognize me?"

"I can't remember having met a pink bunny before."

"Graaa," Nephrite grumbled. "It's me, Nephrite, and if you comment once more on my outer appearance, you will regret it."

"Nephrite?!" Jadeite stared open-mouthed at the rabbit. "How did this happen? I thought you were in Kunzite at the moment."

"This is another sample of Obsidian's magick spells."

"He is dangerous," Jadeite discovered.

"Tell me something new. I wonder what more he's capable of doing!"

"Who is he anyway?"

"He has to be quite important, as he is under the protection of Queen Beryl."

"She protects something else than her own interests? That's weird. Is he maybe an illegitimate son of hers?"

"I don't know. He says he isn't."

"At least now I know I have to be doubly careful in his vicinity."

"He seems to know some really powerful spells, although I have the impression, he doesn't actually know what he's doing. Even Kunzite told me he only read that some of the spells Obsidian used existed, but he never saw the actual formulas." Nephrite directed a begging gaze at Jadeite. "Could you do me a favour? I'd like to go downstairs and eat something, but somehow I can't use my powers yet. Must be the shock of the displacement again."

"Well, I was just on the way as well," Jadeite said. "I'm hungry, too."

"Wonderful!"

Jadeite picked up the bunny and went to the kitchen, where he placed him on the table. "You're quite heavy for a rabbit," he commented, before he grinned sheepishly. "Sorry."

"I'd prefer if you'd get me something to eat," Nephrite ignored the faux pas.

Jadeite peered into the refrigerator. "Dear me, there are lots of left over fast food boxes it seems." He took out one of the boxes. "And there's sushi as well, although I don't think one can eat it anymore. Raw fish just doesn't keep long, and I don't know how old it is." Jadeite threw away all the sushi; he prefered Italian food anyway.

"I don't like raw fish at all." Nephrite gazed into the refrigerator. "Aren't there any vegetables in there? I'd like to have some carrots, salat, cabbage and the stuff."

Jadeite heaped some carrots and Chinese cabbage in front of Nephrite who immediately attacked a carrot and nibbled at it.

The blonde King put some other stuff into the microwave oven. He grimaced. Reheated take-away meals didn't belong to his top list of favourite food.

"Tomorrow we have to go and buy some fresh foodstuffs," Jadeite decided. "I'd like to cook some noodle dishes."

"Well, currently I'm content when I get some fresh vegetables. - But can you really cook?"

"Well, yes."

"Isn't that much work?"

"But the results are worth it. Unfortunately I had some problems with cooking in the Dark Kingdom. Whenever I had something delicious in the oven, Queen Beryl ordered me to attend, and when I came back, all the nice meals were burnt."

"Beryl seems to have a seventh sense to call at the most inapproriate moments," Nephrite agreed. "Well, but now you shouldn't have any problems with her anymore." He nibbled at the next carrot. "By the way, I'm thirsty, too," he declared.

"Just a moment." Jadeite fetched a small dish, filled it with water and set it down in front of Nephrite.

"Ahm, I thought about something else but water," Nephrite pouted. "I had no opportunity to drink all the time within Kunzite's mind, and you offer me clear water!"

"Well, what would you like to drink?"

"Some wine would be nice."

"And where do I find it?"

"In the wine-cellar of course."

"Well, you have to show me what you wish." Jadeite picked up Nephrite once more and carried him downstairs. The cellar hadn't been redecorated by Kunzite and Zoisite, and so it was still dusty and filled with shelves and racks full of bottles.

Nephrite directed Jadeite to a shelf where one of his favourite brands resided. His carrier sneezed when he blew away the dust from the bottles.

"What's this? Château Latour Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classé? Sounds like Greek to me."

"It's French," Nephrite corrected. "And it's a very expensive and classy wine."

"And probably as dry as dust."

"I almost forgot, you prefer the sweeter stuff. Well, then go over there, where I keep some German wines. I think the Albiger Schloß Hammerstein Bacchus Spätlese should be something for you, or the Traben-Trarbach-Wolfer Goldgrube Riesling Auslese."

Jadeite only looked with big eyes at the pink rabbit. If Nephrite had talked in Greek to him, he wouldn't have understood less. With some directions, though, he found the bottles Nephrite meant.

They returned to the kitchen, and under Nephrite's watchful eyes, Jadeite had to open the bottles carefully and decant them properly. It was almost more difficult than cooking, he thought.

"I deeply regret that I can't enjoy the wine in a fitting glass," Nephrite sighed.

"Well, I can't help it." Jadeite poured some of the Château Latour Pauillac into the dish, while he tried the Riesling in a proper glass.

Nephrite licked up the wine. "Wonderful," he sighed.

Jadeite agreed when he sipped from his delicious white wine. Nephrite really knew his wines.

"I'm curious when we will see Kunzite and Zoisite again, now that they are finally alone," Nephrite said.

"Dunno. Probably next week," Jadeite grinned.

"I wonder if we can allow that," Nephrite mused.

"As long as they're occupied, they won't get into our way," Jadeite pointed out. "I still don't understand what they see in each other, though."

"I don't know. But they are hopelessly under each other's spell, it seems."

"Obviously." Jadeite wondered how it might feel to have someone to love and be loved by. But he would certainly prefer some cute girl.

"I think I have enough for now," Nephrite said. "I'm getting tired."

"Well, do you have a box where you sleep?"

"Hey, I want to sleep in my bed, not in some box!"

"Okay," Jadeite laughed and carried Nephrite into his room and put him onto the large bed. "I'll drop by tomorrow morning and fetch you for breakfast."

"Good." Nephrite snuggled into the coverlet of beige satin, and Jadeite returned to his room and went to sleep as well.

* * *

In the morning, Jadeite made true his promise and went to Nephrite. He still found it highly amusing that his colleague was currently this large pink rabbit.

Nephrite still slept in the hollow he had dug in his bed. Jadeite grinned.

"Good morning, Nephrite!"he shouted cheerfully.

The bunny jumped into the air. "What?!"

"Breakfast time," Jadeite announced.

"That's great." Nephrite lollopped to the edge of the bed, and Jadeite took him up and carried him down to the kitchen.

Much to their surprise, they met Kunzite and Zoisite who already sat at the table and sipped tea. The smaller man beamed at his beloved and held his hand.

"What a surprise," the rabbit said. "Good morning."

"Hm? Good morning, Nephrite, Jadeite," Kunzite greeted.

"What's a surprise?" Zoisite put down his cup and kissed the palm of Kunzite's hand. He was in high spirits.

"That you're not in your bed anymore," Nephrite said amused.

"We still have to figure out a way to overthrow Queen Beryl, and I wanted to study some special spells in the books I retrieved," Kunzite explained.

"I see."

"I'd have prefered to stay a little longer with him," Zoisite sighed, "but it's impossible to separate Kunzite from his books if he wants to research something." He stood up, went behind his beloved and wrapped his arms around him. That way he could bury his face in the thick silvery white mane of his lover for once. It was unfair that he was so small and could only do that when Kunzite sat.

Jadeite put down Nephrite on the table and fetched some vegetables for his colleague, before he poured himself some of the tea.

"Where's Obsidian?" he asked.

"I haven't seen him today," Kunzite replied. "He probably has returned to the Dark Kingdom."

Nephrite nibbled at a carrot and watched Kunzite and Zoisite closely. He tried not to miss anything when Zoisite whispered some sweet nothings into Kunzite's ear.

"What are we going to do after breakfast?" Zoisite asked before he returned to playfully nibbling at Kunzite's earlobe. "You see, Kunzite-sama wants to study..."

"You might consider studying as well," Kunzite suggested.

"Awwww, Kunzite-sama, but that's so boring."

"We want to go shopping," Jadeite declared.

"That's more like it," Zoisite said. "I love to shop."

"We only want to buy foodstuffs," Nephrite stated.

"But I need some new clothes, and I have to go to the hairdresser's," Zoisite said.

"I have to agree with him, I need some clothes as well," Jadeite looked down at his uniform. As he wasn't sure about the current fashion, he wanted to get some genuine pieces freom a shop instead of conjuring something that would maybe look out of place at the current time. Nephrite sighed. What should he do in a boutique?

"Has anyone told you that pink is a ridiculous colour for a rabbit?" Zoisite teased, while he massaged Kunzite's shoulders. Nephrite snorted annoyedly.

Jadeite watched Kunzite and Zoisite wistfully. "Sometimes I also wish I'd have someone to cuddle with," he sighed.

"Don't look at me," Nephrite warned.

"We don't need someone else either," Kunzite declared and pulled Zoisite on his lap.

"Actually I thought more of a beautiful girl," Jadeite clarified.

"Good." Nephrite was relieved.

"She should be temperamental, intelligent and have red or black hair..."

"Well, then I suggest either Queen Beryl or SailorMars," Zoisite giggled.

"Queen Beryl? Not in this life! - Well, I think I'll have to look around a bit to find my dream-girl," the blonde King said thoughtfully. Although the Mars girl really had something; she was beautiful and her attacks where impressive.

"Good luck," Kunzite grinned. "Fortunately I have already found my 'dream-girl'."

Zoisite looked scandalized and bit lightly into Kunzite's ear.

"Well, I never knew how anyone could mistake Zoisite for a man anyway," Jadeite grinned.

"Want an ice crystal in a particularly uncomfortable part of your anatomy?" Zoisite asked with a nasty gleam in his emerald eyes.

"I'm not into sadomasochism, thank you."

"I want to go now," Nephrite interjected. "I need some fresh carrots."

"Okay, okay." Jadeite gulped down his cup of tea, before he took up the rabbit again. Zoisite conjured himself a nice outfit in white and red, then he took out the ribbon that held his hair back and shook out his coppery golden mane.

"I still don't understand why you love to shop for clothes when you can conjure them anyway," Kunzite commented.

"I love the trying on and being admired," Zoisite admitted. "And I need to keep up-to-date with the fashion." He held out his hand. "I need some money, Lord Kunzite!"

The silver-haired man shook his head with amusement, before he called some of the money to him that he had gotten in exchange for some precious gems he had conjured.

"Thank you, my Lord," the younger man smiled cheerfully. Nephrite also supplied Jadeite with the local currency, and he was glad that some of his magickal powers seemed to return slowly but surely.

"Thanks," Jadeite said to Nephrite, before he decided to conjure some more inconspicuous clothes than his uniform. He decided on a combination of green trousers and a violet jacket. The others cringed. Jadeite had absolutely no fashion sense. Zoisite corrected the colour accident to light and dark blue, complimenting Jadeite's midnight blue eyes. The blonde grinned sheepishly and thanked his colleague.

"How do we get into town when teleporting is out of the question because of Endymion?" Nephrite asked.

"I think I should be able to drive the car," Zoisite claimed. "I watched Kunzite-sama closely."

"I think you watched nothing more than him," Jadeite surmised. "I will drive."

"I agree," Nephrite said. Jadeite had even driven a bus once.

"If you say so," Zoisite pouted and looked longingly at Kunzite. "I hope you won't get bored when I'm not around."

"I think I can cope with your absence," Kunzite assured him. As long as he wanted to read books and study, Zoisite was too much of a diversion. The little rat was pretty demanding, he found, especially now that they didn't belong to Queen Beryl's troops in the Dark Kingdom anymore. But then, he'd rather not tell him this right away.

"Let's go now. - Zoisite?"

"Yeah, I'll come." He blew Kunzite a final kiss. "I'll return as soon as possible!"

"Have a nice shopping trip, little rat," Kunzite smiled.

"I will buy some beautiful things that I can show you tonight."

"Bring me something to eat when you return, then I'm content. Someone threw away all of our sushi, it seems."

"You mean that foul smelling stuff in the icebox?" Jadeite asked.

"I didn't smell foul," Zoisite protested. "It was fresh fish."

"Fresh? It was disgusting."

"How could you throw it away?"

"Well, you can buy some new portions of it, if you absolutely have to. Fish needs to be really fresh if you want to eat it raw." Jadeite went to the garage to fetch the car.

He put Nephrite onto the back seat, while Zoisite took place on the passenger seat, before they started in direction of the city. They parked in an underground car park.

Jadeite carried around Nephrite again, and the people looked with amusement at the odd couple with the pink rabbit.

"Let's go to that boutique over there!" Zoisite pointed to a women's boutique and ran into the store. Jadeite shook his blonde head and followed him. He had to put down the heavy rabbit for a moment. Nephrite was a bit bored as he couldn't say anything in public, and so he only watched his surroundings.

Jadeite waited patiently until Zoisite had bought several alluring pieces of lingerie. The same game was continued through at least a dozen of other shops. When Jadeite refused to carry the growing amount of bags that Zoisite had assembled, the pretty man sulked and decided to support them telekinetically.

Unfortunately this alarmed some of the youma at watch in the Earth Realm, and so it didn't take long, and four of the Dark Kingdom warriors materialized.

"We don't tolerate traitors," the leader of them hissed, and Zoisite frowned. Somewhere he had heard that before.

"That's what I've been waiting for all the time," Jadeite sighed, and the Nephrite-rabbit also snorted something.

Zoisite looked angrily at the youma. "And I don't tolerate anyone who disturbs my shopping trips," he hissed, let his bags drop and blasted the first of the attackers with his trademark cherry blossom petal storm.

Jadeite set Nephrite down and joined Zoisite's attack. "And I have not even started with my own shopping," he declared. "That's even worse!"

The two renegade Kings battled the youma, but unfortunately they had called for support and a dozen more of them appeared.

"We'd better run," Nephrite suggested.

"That's easier said than done," Zoisite said. "We can't teleport as they will simply follow us. We have to obliterate them without a trace."

"What about shouting for help?" Nephrite remarked.

"And who is supposed to hear this?" Jadeite replied.

"I could try to call Kunzite-sama," Zoisite considered, "although he might not hear when he's fully absorbed in his books." He blasted the next two youma and dodged the attack of another.

"I fear we won't make it," Jadeite shouted.

"Why not?" Zoisite blasted another attacker. "If you would fight a bit harder, it shouldn't be a problem."

Nephrite decided to join the fight as well. He sat up on his hind legs and shot some energy blasts from his paws. His powers had mostly returned, it seemed.

Suddenly a certain group of five young girls appeared, and SailorMoon addressed the attacking youma. "You're attacking innocent passers-by on their shopping trip, and this is absolutely mean. In the name of the Moon, I will punish you!"

Irritated, the youma looked from the Kings to the Senshi and back. "That's unfair," the lead youma complained and started to shoot at SailorMoon who screamed and jumped to the side.

"And you're mean!" she shouted.

"What did you expect?" Zoisite remarked contemptously, while he obliterated one of the youma who was still engaged in battle with him and Jadeite.

"They have to wait until I'm ready," SailorMoon pouted and retaliated with her Moon Tiara Action, before she used the Moon Healing Escalation to finish off the youma permanently.

"I still think it looks absolutely silly that you have to go through all of those contortions before you are able to start with your attacks," Zoisite sneered.

"But that's my personal style," SailorMoon protested.

"My style is much more elegant." Zoisite affectedly lifted his arm and blasted the next youma with his cherry blossom petals. SailorMoon stuck out her tongue at him and took care of the youma who attacked her and her friends.

Zoisite pouted and decided to show off some more. SailorMars and SailorJupiter killed off their share with Fire Soul and Supreme Thunder, and soon after there was no youma left.

"Anyway, why do you steal us all the fun and destroy all of our adversaries?" Zoisite complained.

"Be quiet," Nephrite hissed. "Be happy that they saved us!"

"A talking rabbit!" SailorMercury looked fascinatedly at Nephrite. "And a pink one at that."

"So what? I'm not stranger than talking cats."

"But your colour is," SailorJupiter said. "Do you have a name?"

"Just call me 'Bunny'." Nephrite thought it would be way too embarassing to admit that it was him in this body.

Zoisite giggled.

"We should get away from here before more youma are sent," Nephrite suggested and lollopped to Jadeite who took him on his arm again.

SailorJupiter grinned, Jadeite looked too funny with the bunny.

"I want to go home," Nephrite commanded. "I don't care to fight any more today." Jadeite made a face.

"Oh, I'd love to kill some more of those lowly creatures." Zoisite smiled his best evil smile and played with an ice crystal. "But on the other hand - I can't leave Kunzite-sama for too long. Well, but first we need to buy some foodstuffs."

"That's true," Jadeite agreed. "Let's do it."

Zoisite nodded and dissolved his ice crystal, before he headed for a Japanese snack bar. "And if anyone dares to throw away my sushi again, I swear I'll be really angry."

"If you like foul-smelling fish that much... One can not keep sushi for longer than a day! But don't worry, I won't touch it," Jadeite promised.

"It's not foul-smelling, it smells deliciously," Zoisite pouted.

"It depends on how old it is. But then, it's your stomach, not mine that has to survive it."

"Sushi is healthy and low-fat food. You should try it, too. You're getting fat."

"Phaw," Jadeite grumbled, before he grabbed Zoisite's hand. "Let's discuss diets later, it's time to go."

"Let my hand go," Zoisite demanded. "Only Kunzite-sama is allowed to touch me." He gave him a nasty glare.

"Stop arguing at once," Nephrite nagged. "I refuse to be involved in another attack by youma only because you stayed so that you could argue on."

"But he has to let go of my hand first." Zoisite pulled, but Jadeite had a strong grip. The Senshi watched the Kings in utter amazement as they left.

"Let him be," Nephrite ordered Jadeite and put his front paws on his breast. The blonde King did as he was told, and Zoisite sighed relieved. Finally they could buy the food. Jadeite also organized some ingredients for his planned cooking adventures, and then they went to the car and drove home.

Zoisite stormed to Kunzite who sat in the living room and leafed through several stacks of books with magick spells. The young man jumped at him and flung his arms around him. "Did you miss me, my Lord?"

"Always, little rat," Kunzite claimed, although he thought that they really could have stayed in the city a little longer. When Zoisite was around, he would never find the peace to go through his books.

Jadeite shook his head at the display and disappeared into the kitchen.

Kunzite sighed and put the volume he had read back onto the stack, before he pulled Zoisite onto his lap and kissed him. His beloved was sweet as always, but also really demanding.
