I must have watched too much Sailor Moon as a child. Wait. There’s no such thing!

I’m just gonna give you the description 9th grade Ashley wrote. Sigh. Sorry I was so obnoxious.
"I drew this on the back of some English packet, it had "The Sentimentality of William Tavener" by Willa Cather on it (for the record, it sucked—-don’t read it!). Anywho, I drew this chick and edited her on the compuuuuuuuuuter. If you look reeeeeeeally close you can see the words from the English story on her kimono. ^_~"
