Return of the Moon Princess
Sailor Cosmos sighed loudly as she looked at Darien sitting alone on his throne. Rini was 13 yrs old now. She was in a 'Princess training course'. Cosmos hadn't missed one moment in her family's life. She watched painfully as Darien tried to date and watched with a little shame of happiness when he broke down crying because he couldn't find someone else to love. She watched Rini grow up and go through the pain of not having a mother. She even watched the scouts fight the new enemies. The only person that knew she was still alive was Pluto.
It had been 7 years since Serena's 'death' and she was going back as Sailor Cosmos that afternoon. Pluto said that they wouldn't remember the form, and the chances of them finding out who Sailor Cosmos was were slim. Cosmos looked over at Pluto and Pluto nodded. Cosmos who had become guardian of the entire universe and ruler of the stars also got to control the power of time. With the twirl of her staff Cosmos opened a portal up that would lead her in the throne room.
Darien sat sadly starring at the double doors that was the exit of the throne room. The palace had become nothing but old memories for him. Even after 7 years he missed Serena more then ever. Their daughter had been through many hard times begging for her mommy. He closed his eyes and thought painfully of how Serena's birth day was next week. He felt a cold wind and quickly opened his eyes a portal appeared in the middle of the room and a goddess stepped out.
Her hair was done up in the legendary royal Lunarian style. But it was silver and extremely long, the sign on her forehead looked more like a star with a hint of a crescent moon. She was a sailor scout that was obvious because of her outfit. But you could tell she was special, her long white cape blowing slightly behind her and her long staff seemed to support most of her weight. Whoever she was seemed to be the leader of all the scouts.
Darien snapped out of his thoughts and stood up. "Who are you and how did you get in here!" He demanded angrily. The girl reminded him so much of Serena and the dull pain in his heart grew.
"I am Sailor Cosmos. Guardian of the universe ruler of the stars..." Her voice so elegant that it knocked the air out of Darien, He never thought he could fall in love again, yet perhaps he just fell in love at first sight.
"What do you want here?" He asked, more softly this time.
"I am here to help you King Endymion, a war is coming up and your fighters are far from prepared. Tell me have you even got the new Sailor Moon ready?" She asked and frowned slightly.
Anger flashed in Darien's eyes, "There will be no new Sailor Moon. The old one still lives!" He took a step closer but stopped when he saw the seriousness in her eyes.
"The old Sailor Moon is dead and has been for 7 years! She is not coming back and you have made a grave mistake by not awakening the new one." Darien stopped and blinked back the tears that came to his eyes.
"I don't want your help." He said suddenly. His feeling of love quickly vanishing by the thought of Serena...
"You need my help regardless if you want it." She said.
Darien motioned for a servant to come and quickly sent for Luna. "Luna is the person who will know about you...you look remarkable like a Lunarian." Darien whispered and seemed to collapse back in his throne chair. Luna came running toward him and stopped in awe at the person that was standing in front of the throne chairs.
"Goddess Selenity...!" Luna yelled. Cosmos turned around and nodded her head at Luna. Luna ran past her and jumped on the arm of Darien's throne chair. "Why are you here if you don't mind me asking?" Luna said and glanced over at Darien.
"I am here to help you fight an upcoming war. Why haven't you awakened the new Sailor Moon?" Cosmos spoke harshly and glared at Darien he glared right back at her.
"The old Sailor Moon still lives Cosmos; we just have to give her time to come back to us." Luna said and sighed.
Cosmos glared angrily at the cat, "The old Sailor Moon is dead and has been for 7 years!" Cosmos yelled this and the cat looked startled. "You have endangered your lives and the life of Small Lady by not having her ready to fight; now I will have to work twice as hard in order to win this war." She said angrily. Darien was looking at her curiously and with pain. Then she realized what name she let slip, small lady.
"Why did you call her that...no one has called her that in 7 years?" Luna asked, her face drawn up in pain
Cosmos struggled for something to say. "Never mind what I called her, in two days a war will break out, get the scouts ready and get King Endymion ready also." Cosmos said.
Luna nodded, "Right away Selenity." Luna said and ran toward the yard where the scouts were. Darien walked up to her and got so close she could feel his breath on her face.
"I know Serena is still alive, you look so much like her..." He left off and got closer. Cosmos just stood there and let the moment of passion take her she didn't even stop when he leaned in to kiss her. The scouts did though, the came through the doors and Darien jumped away from Cosmos. The scouts acted as if they saw nothing, besides Mars who glared at Darien.
Luna came in last and smiled at Cosmos, "They are all headed to the training center and if you want...I'll send Rini out and you can awaken the new Sailor Moon." Luna whispered the last part.
Cosmos nodded, "That would be great, but wait a couple of minutes before you do; I have some things to discuss with Endymion." Cosmos said.
"Stay away from Darien, he's Serena's." Mars spoke up. Luna just sighed and Cosmos glared at her.
"What does that mean Mars, I don't like it when people accuse me of things I haven't done." Cosmos pointed her staff at Mars, "Leave before I punish you." She said coldly.
Cosmos didn't want to hurt Mars, but she would. Raye was her best friend how she could even accuse Darien of doing something else with a stranger. The scouts walked quickly out of the doors and toward the training room. Luna following them slightly...
Darien watched her, "You're beautiful you know that...you remind me of Serena...it's so hard for me not to kiss you." He said and Cosmos blushed. Maybe she should tell him, end the pain he has had for 7 years.
She walked closer to him, "Darien even though you think the old Sailor moon is alive you should've awoken Rini...Serena would've like that." Cosmos whispered.
Darien then glared at her, "How would you know what Serena would like." He yelled.
"Because I talk to her when she died her spirit came up and lived with me in the gates of time." Cosmos said and looked away from him.
"Take me to her." He demanded.
"I can not do that, she sends her love though and her disappointment that her little girl isn't following in her footsteps." Cosmos smiled at him.
"Well you're going to awaken Sailor Moon again correct? Then she will not have to be disappointed anymore." Darien said. Cosmos nodded and Rini ran in.
"MOMMY...!" She yelled and flung her self in Cosmos arms.
Cosmos didn't know what to do, the emotion over whelmed her. Darien though did not really give Cosmos time to react.
"Rini...! Let go of her, she is not your mother." Darien said harshly.
Rini slowly let go and looked at her eyes, "Can't you see her Daddy? Mommy lives inside of this person." Rini started to cry and Darien patted her on the head.
"Your 13 years old Rini, you no longer need to act like this. Cosmos has brought you in here for a reason." Darien said.
Rini nodded and took a couple of steps away from Cosmos.
"I'm going to make you the new Sailor Moon ok Rini?" Cosmos asked. Rini looked afraid but nodded. Cosmos held up her locket and the sign on her forehead began to glow. A locket appeared on Rini's chest and Cosmos said, "Arise Rini as the new Sailor Moon. Take on the responsibility to protect this planet and your palace." Rini touched the locket "Moon Crystal Power!" The transformation took place and Cosmos smiled. Sailor Moon was back in a way...the real Sailor Moon was standing right in front of them. Of course they didn't know it, but soon enough Darien would.
Pluto walked in the throne room after the transformation and nodded at Sailor Moon. Darien couldn't bring himself to look at her though. It reminded him too much of Serena.
"Cosmos I must speak with you." Pluto said. Cosmos nodded and walked over to Pluto; Darien curiously watched them and tried hard to hear what they were saying. "Serena, are you actually thinking about telling Darien? Do you think he'll be able to keep it to himself?" Pluto asked.
Cosmos sighed, "Pluto I can't let him go through the pain, I just can't." Cosmos tried to keep her voice steady but couldn't.
Pluto nodded, "You make your own choices Serena, but I warn you, this could be a mistake." Pluto said.
Cosmos nodded and walked back over to them. Darien watched as Pluto bowed one last time and then disappeared.
Sailor Moon just looked at them, "What do I do now?" She asked.
"Go to the training course and train there with the scouts, they will help you." Cosmos said.
"Don't you need to train?" Darien asked as Sailor Moon ran off.
Cosmos smiled, "My training has already taken place. Darien, come with me." Cosmos said. Darien followed her and he was amazed by how well she knew the palace. She took them to the room where they held the Silver Crystal. The room was warm and the light from the crystal was more then enough to light up the room. But the crystal was small; it was only a piece of the real thing.
Cosmos touched her locket and took a deep breath it had been several years since she had de-transformed. Darien covered his eyes when the flash took place and he just starred in awe when he saw Eternal Sailor Moon.
"Darien, I am back but only for a while, you must not tell any of the other scouts who I am." Eternal Sailor Moon smiled and tears fell out of Darien's eyes.
"Serena." He whispered and grabbed her. He pulled her into a kiss and the crystal seemed to glow even brighter. They departed and Darien never looked happier.
"Do you understand Darien, I will remain in the form of Cosmos and you must not act like I am Serena...you must not tell the others." Eternal Moon looked at Darien anxiously waiting for an answer.
"Of course my love, I won't tell anyone and I will let you remain in Sailor Cosmos form. I just can't believe your back I can't believe that you were here all the time. No wonder I was already starting to fall in love with Cosmos. I was worrying myself, but now that I know it is you...I don't have to worry." Eternal Moon smiled and kissed Darien one last time.
She then stepped back, "I love you my King and I always will. I'm sorry I had to let you think I was dead for the last 7 years. But my place is now up in the heavens with Pluto and my mother. I am the ruler of the universe, protector of all, leader of the stars. I can only stay with you until the end of this war." Eternal Moon sighed as the sadness in Darien's face returned slightly.
"I understand my love; I will not keep you from leaving when you have to. I will have to treasure the time you are with me though." Darien said. Eternal Moon nodded and grabbed her locket again, "Moon Cosmos Power!" The crystal in the room flashed brightly and Darien covered his eyes while the transformation took place. When he could see again the wise Cosmos was in Eternal Sailor Moon's place and he knew that he could never have his Serena back. The pain in his heart increased and he wondered what he could do knowing that she was going to leave him again after this war. Maybe he could somehow make the war last longer. But that could mean loosing the lives of millions. He sighed; he was going to have to let Serena go.
"Come now Darien, we have to go and speak to the scouts." Cosmos said and led Darien back toward the training room.
