Though she knew she shouldn't, Minako couldn't erase that warmth that flowed through her at his attention.
It was patently obvious who he was, of course. She'd known the moment she saw him. And unlike Artemis, she didn't think that he was responsible for the past. It would still be wise to keep them apart for as long as possible, however.
So she allowed his attentions. It was harmless, really, she decided. It wasn't like she'd actually do something stupid, like fall in love with her Princess' soulmate while pretending to be her Princess. Even at her worst, she wasn't nearly that stupid.
She repeated that every night as she went to sleep, reminding herself of her loyalty to Serenity and her duty as a Senshi.
Even though she knew she was over her head and sinking fast.
