DISCLAIMER: Neither DBZ nor Sailor Moon or any of the characters are owned by me. They're owned by greedy old men without families. Blah.
NOTES: This fanfic takes place after Sailor Moon Super S (in Sailor Moon's world) and after Trunks returns to the future after the Cell Saga (in DBZ's world).
This is it, the big epilogue! It's actually not very long, but it'll tie up a few loose ends and make the ending of the story a bit more satisfying! ^_^ And it's sweet!
"I miss him so much..."
Ami walked down the narrow street leading to the high school in Juuban. Serena, Rei, Lita, and Mina followed her.
"Ami, who do you miss?" Serena asked. "Is it that Trunks guy that you told us about?"
Ami nodded her head.
"Mm-hmm," Ami said, frowning. "I know it's only been a day, but..."
"You really loved him, didn't you?" Mina asked sweetly. "Don't worry, Ami! You'll see him again! I'm the Goddess of Love, and I command it!"
"Thanks, Mina," Ami said. "But I don't think you'll be able to bring Trunks here... he's in an entirely different dimension..."
"Don't be so pessimistic, Ami," Rei said. "Anyway, one of the kids in your class is my friend, and she said that you really didn't miss very much. The class had a substitute teacher for most of the days that you were gone, so they just watched videos and stuff."
"That sounds like my kinda class!" Serena said.
The five girls walked up to the high school. The principal of the school was standing next to the door, waving.
"Ah, Ami, it's good to see you back!" the principal said. "I see that your pneumonia has cleared up! Have you been feeling well?"
Ami nodded, surprised by what the principal had said. She turned to her friends.
"Did you tell the principal I had pneumonia?" Ami whispered.
"No, your mother did," Lita replied.
"Don't worry, Ami!" Serena said. "You're not in trouble and you didn't miss anything!"
Ami sighed. The five girls walked into the school.
Trunks sat on a chair next to his mother's bed, watching over her. She was eating her breakfast, which consisted of a piece of toast and an apple, in bed.
"I miss Ami," Trunks sighed. "She was all I was able to think about last night. I didn't get any sleep."
"You haven't gotten sleep in four days," Bulma said in a concerned voice. "Look, there are circles under your eyes..."
"Mom, I'm fine..." Trunks said. He got up from the chair he was sitting in and started toward the door. Bulma frowned sadly.
"Trunks...."Bulma thought, watching him leave. Trunks exited the room and walked down the stairs. "He's going outside..."
Bulma slowly stood up, getting out bed and walking over to the door.
"I think there's something I'm forgetting to tell him..." Bulma said to herself. "Wait a minute..."
Ami walked down the hall of the school toward her locker. She reached it and turned the lock, opening it up.
"I bet I have cobwebs inside of here..." Ami said quietly. She bent down and picked up two of her books, then gently closed her locker. She turned around and started to walk toward her classroom.
"Oh, I can't get this stupid thing open..." pouted a girl's voice. Ami turned around to see a girl with long, blue hair struggling with the locker next to Ami's. A girl with long pink hair and a girl with short, green hair were standing behind her. The three girls were wearing red, white, and blue sailor fuku school uniforms like Ami was wearing.
"Those three look familiar..."Ami thought, watching them.
"Angela, can't you open a locker right?" the pink-haired girl said.
"Well, my dumb fingernails are making it hard," Angela whined.
"Can I try?" the green-haired girl said, smiling eagerly.
"Oh my gosh, it's them!"Ami thought.
"Sure, Cammy, you can try and open it," Angela said. She stepped back, accidentally bumping into Ami. "Oh!"
Angela spun around and faced Ami.
"I'm really sorry," Angela said. "My sisters and I are new here, and we can't get this locker open..."
"Got it!" Cammy said, pointing at the opened locker. She looked at Ami and smiled. "And who might you be?"
"My name is Ami," Ami said.
"My name's Angela!" Angela said, smiling at Ami. "It looks like we're locker neighbors!"
The pink-haired girl turned to Ami.
"My name's Rose," the pink-haired girl said. "We just moved here from Osaka!"
"That's right," Cammy said. "My name is Cammy! I really like your school, but it's so hard to open these lockers..."
"I see!" Ami said. "You'll get used to them in a hurry! It was nice to meet all of you!"
"Maybe we'll have classes together!" Rose said. "Wouldn't that be nice?"
"Oh, yes!" Angela said, smiling.
Ami smiled and waved to the three girls, then turned around and walked toward her classroom.
"One of the gods in Trunks' world must have brought Rosemary, Angelica, and Chamomile into this dimension and given them new lives!"Ami thought. "Now they're getting another chance. I'm so happy for them..."
Trunks sat on the front porch of his house, staring down at the ground.
"Why can't I get over you, Ami?" Trunks said sadly. "I can't... I can't... not even for a second..."
"Without you, I feel so empty... why couldn't you stay? Oh, Ami..."
"Trunks?" Bulma said, walking up behind Trunks. Trunks turned around to see his mother standing behind him, wearing a blue nightgown.
"Mom, you have to stay hooked up to the machines!" Trunks said.
"No, I don't," Bulma replied. "I'm feeling pretty good right now..."
"Mom, if you have something to say, say it," Trunks said, with a slight bit of anger in his voice. Bulma frowned.
"Trunks, if you take that tone with me, I'm not going to tell you about your other birthday present at all!" Bulma scolded.
"Sorry, mom," Trunks said. "Maybe I do need some sleep... what do you mean, 'second birthday present'?"
"Come down to the basement, and I'll show you," Bulma said.
"Fine," Trunks groaned.
Bulma walked over to her workbench, reached into one of the sliding compartments, and pulled out a small, mirror-like device consisting of a black metal wand with a reflective piece of glass at one end. Several buttons were placed under it. Trunks walked over to Bulma.
"Okay," Trunks said. "What's this birthday present you speak of?'
Bulma held out the small device to Trunks. Trunks took it from Bulma and looked at it.
"What is it?" Trunks asked.
"While I was working on that device to send Ami home, I found a few spare parts that could be useful," Bulma said. "Soon after, Ami allowed me to channel some energy from her. I couldn't do it before, but I managed to extract a bit of energy and contain it inside a small container."
"And?" Trunks asked. "What is this thing?"
"You should know by now," Bulma said. "Just be back before supper, okay?"
"No way," Trunks said. "No freaking way."
"You'd better be back before supper," Bulma said.
"No, I don't mean that, I mean.... is this..."
"Yes," Bulma said. "It's a device that creates dimensional gates. The magical energy contained inside allows it to be used as much as you want, so you can go from here to Ami's dimension and back."
Trunks set the device on the workbench, then embraced his mother.
"Mom, thank you!" Trunks said, tears forming in his eyes. "Mom... I love you so much! Oh, thank you!"
"Trunks, you're squeezing too hard..." Bulma said, smiling. "Like I said, be back before supper..."
Trunks picked up the device again, smiling from ear-to-ear.
"Ami, here I come!"
After school, Ami exited the building and started to walk toward the park. Serena, Rei, Mina, and Lita began to follow her.
"Ami, where are ya goin'?" Serena asked. "We've got to meet at Rei's temple!"
"I'll meet up with you guys later," Ami said, turning to her friends and smiling. "I... I need to be alone right now..."
Ami turned and ran off, toward the park.
"She's depressed," Lita said quietly.
"Poor Ami," Mina said. "She lost the person she loved..."
Ami ran into the park. Tears were streaming down her face.
"This is where I got sent to Trunks' world," Ami sobbed, running toward a park bench in the middle of a large field of grass. "Maybe... maybe if I wish hard enough, I can go there again..."
Ami sat down on the park bench, put her head into her hands, and began crying.
"Oh, Trunks," Ami sobbed. "Why can't you be here! I need you!"
Ami continued to cry, shaking violently as she sobbed.
"It's not fair..." Ami cried. "It's not... it's not..."
"Who said life was fair?" said a male voice next to Ami. "Sometimes you just have to deal with stuff, you know?"
Ami turned her head toward the person sitting next to her. When she saw who it was, she gasped. She was staring into the eyes of her lost lover, Trunks. Trunks smiled a warm smile.
"Trunks..." Ami sobbed, looking up at him. "Is this a dream?"
"No," Trunks said. "It's real. I promise."
Ami's eyes lit up. She smiled at Trunks, leaned toward him, and kissed him on the lips, wrapping her arms around his chest in a warm embrace. She slipped her tongue into his mouth and touched her tongue to his, then, slowly pulled her tongue out of his mouth and kissed his lips again. The kiss ended, leaving Trunks and Ami sitting on the park bench in each other's arms.
"Oh, Trunks..." Ami said. "I... I couldn't stand to be away from you for even a day..."
"Neither could I," Trunks said. "We're... two parts of the same whole."
"I love you so much, Trunks," Ami said, kissing him on the lips. "But... but how did you get here?"
"Mom gave me a device that lets me go back and forth between this world and my world as much as I want," Trunks said. "I think you and your friends can, too."
"I love you, Trunks," Ami said again, kissing Trunks on the lips. "Let's never be apart..."
"We'll always be together," Trunks said softly, looking into Ami's eyes. "I promise."
"Forever and ever, no matter what," Ami said, smiling. "I love you."
Ahhh, that was sappy! But I loved it! ^_^ Trunks and Ami, together forever! If ya don't really like sappy endings, you can disregard this epilogue if you want, but why would ya wanna do that? Trunks and Ami were meant for one another! Well, I enjoyed writing this ficcy, and I hope you all enjoyed reading it! Thank you all!
