Author's Note:

Yes, another fanfiction. As before, the disclaimers go as follows:

My email address is Guardian4@atlantic.net. If you want to email me about my story, please put fanfiction in the subject line. Sailor Moon was made by Naoko Tacheuchi, I don't own it.

Also, Rei and Mamoru never went out, k? And Kunzite and Zoisite are not lovers. I also used the relationship between the Shitennou from the manga, not the anime, which means they don't hate each other. I also use only the manga attacks for the Senshi. (Since in the Manga, Mars doesn't have Fire Soul and only talismans in the first season, I'm going to borrow a second season one, even though she doesn't have her Star Power transformation.)

Hidden Truths

Epilogue

When Rei left the school, she marched straight up to Jason's bike. He pulled his helmet off and she immediately kissed him in front of stunned nuns and student body. Jason couldn't care less who watched, only enjoyed the declaration kiss.

"I don't care if they saw," she whispered fiercely. "I will not hide our beautiful love from them because they can't do anything to me. I'm the Senshi of Fire."

He laughed and motioned for her to get on. She tied her hair back and did, wrapping her arms around his waist. They drove down the street, happy…

…That had been a long time ago, Rei thought as she walked down the halls of the Crystal Palace of Crystal Tokyo. Makoto and Nate had, of course, continued their interrupted date when things had calmed down a few days after their resurrection. Ami and Zale had admitted they were going out, and Minako told her parents that she and Keagan had been dating and she wouldn't stop.

"How're your ankles today, Rei-chan?" asked Ami as she came out of room lining the corridor.

Rei placed her hands on her swollen belly and groaned. "Horrible, but I'll live. Wait until you get as far along as I am."

Ami blushed to the roots of her hair. She was only two months pregnant, versus Rei's eight and a half. They were the only two Senshi left to have children. Makoto had had a boy early on and Minako two girls, one a small version of Minako and the other a small female version of Keagan.

Chibiusa, Usagi's child, ran past them followed by Luna and Artemis's child, Diana.

"Wish I had that energy," commented Makoto as she joined them.

"Yeah, your son runs you ragged."

"Wait until you have yours, Rei-chan. You'll understand then."

Minako, ahead of them with her two girls hanging from her hands, opened the throne room door and smiled back at them. Neo Queen Serenity and King Endymion talked with the four husbands when they entered.

Everything was different from that Tokyo night when Jadeite had knocked Sailor Moon down and she had woken up bleeding. Everything including a near millennium of peace when Crystal Tokyo had been established.

"Serenity, I have to thank you," Makoto commented as they reached the dais.

"For what? What have I done recently?" asked the silver blond in perplexity.

"Not what you have done recently," she corrected the queen with no amount of the normal reverence reserved for her by her subjects. "I have to thank you for blasting Nephrite at point blank range with your wand when you were 15. If you hadn't done that, I wouldn't have my son and my husband here now."

Serenity laughed. "At the time you all were yelling at me about it, saying he was too heavy to carry."

Nate's eyebrow rose. "You were claiming I was too heavy?"

"I didn't," his wife protested. "Rei-chan was the one who said you needed to lose some weight."

"Well right now, I'm not the one who needs to lose some weight."

The Inner Senshi grinned at each other as Rei stuck her tongue out at the brown-haired man. "It still is a miracle that she did that," Ami said thoughtfully. "If I only knew then what I know now…"

Minako commented, "Well, what did we know then?"

End Epilogue.

Hooray, the fanfiction is done! I can't believe it. I've finally finished it! Thanks for reading this far, though, guys!
