𝙣𝙤𝙬, 𝙩𝙤 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙪𝙚: Osara blinked, after Moonstone ruffled her hair "abilities?" she asked curiously, her eyebrows drawn together wonder. She flicked her thumb and middle finger together repeatedly, something she'd always done.
Moonstone nodded. “Each hybrid has them,” she told her, smiling before fiddling with her hair again. She messed with it when she was nervous or when she wanted to. She hummed before smiling again. “It’s pretty great!”
Osara saw a house with a wooden porch come into view, she looked over towards Moonstone, she stopped in her tracks "did you-….did y-you know my mother?" she asked quietly, her hands shaking.
“Not as well as I wish I did…” Moonstone looked away. “From what I knew, she was a very loving person,” she added, sighing. She hated that she didn’t get to meet the girl’s mother sooner.
Osara nodded "did you know she was in the band? the band the crystal gems were in before me and Steven" she said quietly "my mother explained it on one of the tapes she lent me, she left me loads, so I wouldn't forget her. She played the ukulele, it was beautiful really,
it was painted baby blue, mauve, and pastel yellow, and all the strings were multicolored! she left it to me, I have it back at the cottage, she once left me another tape, of her playing all the songs she wrote, and her singing them, one was called 'Peace and Love' its my favorite!" she said rambling, she stopped and continued walking alongside Moonstone,
"Life and death and love and birth And peace and war on the planet Earth Is there anything that's worth more Than peace and love on the planet Earth? Ooh-woah, come on and sing it with me" she sang quietly, the breeze blowing her hair behind her.
Moonstone smirked, humming along. "That's one thing I did know…Your mother was an amazing singer," she smiled as her hair blew in the wind as well.
Osara nodded "Ooh-woah, come on and sing it with me Sing? The words relate to the key, Key, If it's a pattern If it's a pattern Then just repeat after me,
Life and death and love and birth Life and death and love and birth Now you sing mi-fa-mi-mi-fa-mi-ti-la And peace and war on the planet Earth" She sang quietly as they walked, her also blowing in the wind, as well as the skirt of her dress, she hummed the chorus quietly.
Moonstone continued to hum along as memories from the past came rushing back. She remembered when they were all together…before the hybrids even came into existence. She remembered how different everything was. She took a deep breath before twirling slowly as she hummed.
Osara smiled as moonstone twirled, she gave a soft giggle as she continued to hum the chorus.
Moonstone continued until she stopped in her tracks. She froze as the much less pleasant memories started surfacing. All the fighting…the death…she could feel her eyes well up with tears.
Osara looked over to Moonstone, noticing the change in her cheery attitude, she frowned before saying "dont worry,I miss her too." Before smiling again, this smile was quite broken actually a mixture of anger and sadness, her head filled with the various pictures of her mother, before Osara herself was formed; that hung on the walls of her cottage.
“I-It’s not just her I miss…I miss Rose…and everyone else…” Moonstone whispered before looking up. “I especially miss when those of us left were happier…” she added, sighing. She hated how sad Heliotrope, Ammolite, and of course, the main Crystal Gems had been since the hybrids were born.
Osara looked taken aback and frowned "I know-" she paused and stayed quiet "I know sometimes I remind people of my mother, by the things I do… but I- I cant help it." She whispered, her humming long gone,
she then pulled a folded up picture of her mother out of her pocket, and unfolded it, revealing a picture of her mother, smiling for the camera, in a striped bee themed sweater, her hair all frizz and curls. She held it between her fingers, towards Moonstone "you can have this…if you want, I 've got plenty of her at home, my entire bedroom wall is covered in picture of her and my family.
“R-Really?” Moonstone wiped her eyes before grabbing the picture. She smiled softly. “Stars, that sweater looks itchy,” she laughed before smiling again. “Thank you…”
