Title: What is a Lady?
One Line: "But he's your
home I'm known as 'Small Lady' and everyone from my parents to the
citizens call me that. No one calls me 'Princess', 'Your Highness' or
even my real name. Here, back in the past, they call me 'ChibiUsa' and
really, it's the same thing despite the difference.
But what is
a 'Lady'? I always thought that meant being grown up and being like my
mother, but now... through a magical accident... I'm grown up. But I
don't feel like a 'Lady'.
Usagi's no help, she's too busy
being upset about being small. I guess I shouldn't laugh, but it's hard
to see my future mother in her when she's BIG and even harder when
she's MY age in body.
What if we're stuck like this?
The idea is very cool and... very scary. How will that affect the
future? My future? If Usagi is a kid and Mamoru an adult... will I even
be born? And how will Mamoru look at me now? Will he see me as cute
little ChibiUsa or...
"But he's your FATHER!" Usagi
I say this out loud and the decibels make me wince. Well, that and also
because she's right.
Mamoru is my future daddy, even if
he doesn't seem like it now and, I have to accept that.
once said that I'd be a 'Lady' when I was mature, but that doesn't
always mean grown up. I think I had a very mature thought about Mamoru
So... what is a 'Lady'? A Lady is a
woman who is
mature, poised and full of grace. A Lady respects others and commands
their respect. A Lady cares for others and isn't selfish. If I can do
that, then I will be a Lady... no matter what age or size I am.
Still, even if I’m small again
tomorrow, it was nice to be all grown up while it lasted.
