Warning: This IS an Usa/Trunks fic. If you don't like it, please don't read and review telling me you hate my pairing.

Author's Notes: Well, minna-chan! I've done it again! *grins* The idea actually popped into my head a long while ago and I've been working on this fic steadily, in between Cursed and Unforeseen. Cursed is finished (I'm just working on editing and watching the flow of the story) and since Unforeseen has ended (in my books at least), I went ahead with this fic! I have to say, bear with me… it will be full of twists, and promises to be as long as Unexpected Destiny was! *audience member asks "Chibi Tenshi, what's this with you and one word titles?"* Beats the heck out of me! It will be called Goddess for now, and since I only have a general idea right now where the fic is going, it may change as I go along ;) Anyway, you know the usual drill. Let me know what you liked and what you didn't. And email makes me SUPER happy! *grins*

I have to take the time to thank all my wonderful reviewers who took the time to write one or email me. It *does* mean a lot! It's what keeps authors going :) Special thanks to my chans: Angel, D, Hikari, Ivory (thanks for the great idea!!), Jade, MK for giving me the confidence to go ahead, and for putting up with me generally. *giggles* You guys are the best!


Goddess: Chapter 1

A deep chuckle emerged from his throat as his girlfriend flung herself enthusiastically at him. His arms immediately went around her, holding her close to him. He never believed that it would be possible to be this happy, despite all the death and destruction that surrounded him. The androids were finally gone, and then, Usagi came unexpectedly into his life. He had never felt such a passionate intensity towards anyone, and being with Usagi brought sunshine and laughter into his life, something he could not ever imagine happening to him. She had appeared out of nowhere, a vision with golden hair, and bright blue eyes that he could always lose himself in. She had healed his broken soul, allowing him to live once again. He couldn't imagine how life would be without her without seeing her beautiful face, or that smile that never failed to brighten up his day. She snuggled deep into his arms, and he couldn't help the grin on his face. Being around her always brought him such a sense of joy and inner peace. It was like coming home.

"I've missed you!" Usagi exclaimed, blue eyes sparkling at him.

He laughed again, and it amused him sometimes to see how contented he was and to contrast it with the man he once was. "You just saw me five minutes ago, Usagi."

"Are you making fun of me?" She pulled away slightly and pouted. God he couldn't resist her when she did that. Come to think of it, he had very little resistance when it came to her.

"How could I make fun of the most beautiful girl in the world?" He replied softly.

A slight blush came over her cheeks though she shot back, "I'm the only girl in the world right now."

He grinned at her, amazed by her spirit and the inner strength she had.

"I've been meaning to ask you. What have you been doing the past few days?" She asked curiously.

Ahhh… his little project. He'd been working on a surprise for Usagi for the past few weeks. They had been living under the remnants of a building in what used to be the downtown sector. The rubble that spread around was depressing at times. If it weren't for Usagi, he honestly thought he'd go insane.

"Trunks… Trunks… hello??"

"Sorry, Usagi. I was just cleaning up some stuff around the city. Make it look presentable for the tourists, you know."

She giggled, and the sound spread a warmth through his blood. She smiled sweetly, and he was unable to resist capturing her lips with his own. She sighed happily and returned his kiss with a passion that matched his. It was a kiss that demanded the other person's soul, exchanging unspoken promises of happiness and eternity. She pulled away eventually, having run out of oxygen, her breathing slightly uneven, just like his own. He pressed his forehead to hers, and was content just gazing at her face, as if memorizing every feature on it. She smiled blissfully at him, staring back into his eyes. Suddenly, she shifted her head slightly and engulfed herself in his embrace.

Puzzled by the change in mood, his arms tightened around her as he tried to find out what was wrong.

"Just hold me for one second longer…" she whispered with tears in her eyes, burying her face in his chest.

Feeling the tears that dampened his tank top, he became worried. "Usagi, what's wrong?"

"I have to leave."

For one moment, it was as if the world stood still, and his heart stopped beating. He could not feel anything, hear anything, except for the silence that had descended upon them. The shock in his system spread its icy tentacles, numbing him, rendering him speechless. She moved away from his arms, and her eyes pleaded with him. "Say something, Trunks."

She tugged at his arms, the expression on his face tearing at her heart. "Trunks, please…"

"Why?" He finally croaked out.

Her blue eyes watered even further, as tears began trickling down her face. "My life is not my own."

He looked at her incredulously. "Your life is not your own? What do you mean by that??" He demanded, the anger finally overtaking shock.

She stared at him mutely with resigned eyes before widening slightly as a staff came out of nowhere and knocked him unconscious.


"Setsuna!!" She berated as she quickly went to Trunks' side, gently brushing aside the lock of lilac hair that had fallen in front of his face. Wincing slightly at the bruise that had begun to appear on the side of her beloved's head, she cupped his face in her hands, her tears falling freely. "I'm so sorry, Trunks. I never meant to hurt you. If I could, I would spend eternity with you, but I can't. I… I love you so much." Choking back her sobs, she pressed a soft kiss on his lips before getting up slowly and looking around the destruction that had somehow become home.

"We must go now," Setsuna's voice called out.

"I'm going back to Juuban?" She asked, already dreading returning to her own time.

Setsuna nodded as she escorted Usagi through the portal, missing the sight of the man lying on the floor, a tear trickling from the corner of his eye.

"I will find you, Usagi." He vowed silently.


They walked through the Gates of Time, and Usagi felt like she was marching to her death. Her heart had been left back with Trunks, and what the Senshi would be getting was a shell of a woman she once was. She reached out to Setsuna, and stopped her, surprising the older woman with her strength.

"Setsuna, take my memories away of… Trunks and what we had in his world. I don't want to remember what I had, but could not keep. Please," she pleaded, her grief-stricken expression affecting the Time Guardian.

"But Megami-sama, there may be consequences to this."

"Then you shouldn't have sent me to another time!!!" She yelled out in agony, her heart torn into a million pieces. "You shouldn't have let me meet him, fall in love, and then take him away from me!" The last words ended off in a whisper. "Please."

Setsuna nodded solemnly, knowing it was for the best. Staring at Usagi's tear-ridden face, she replied, "It shall be done."


Usagi flung her arms around her boyfriend, throwing herself into his embrace as his arms closed around her tinier form. He was much taller than she was, and despite all their difficulties and problems, they had finally come together. It seemed almost as if destiny had lent a hand. She looked up at him, staring into his blue eyes, feeling as if she could look into his soul.

"What are you looking at?" He asked, softly.

"You," she replied simply. And it was true. She could spend hours just looking at him, memorizing every feature on his face.

His eyes crinkled as a smile spread his lips. "Aishiteru, Usako."

"Aishiteru, Mamo-chan."
