There is a long boring, but emotional explanation as to why I have not updated in what, three months. I will explain all at the end of the chapter. Sad thing is I had to reread my own story so that I knew where to start this chapter. That and writing a wedding story is harder than it seems, well to me anyway, here we go.
Disclaimer: I don't own Sailor Moon, end of story! Gosh (storms away)
Wedding Dreams Fulfilled?
Chapter 9: Let the Spying Begin
"So we all know when our turn is?" asked Serena. The girls nodded in agreement.
"Maybe we should go over them one more time though," suggested Amy.
"Okay . . . Let's see, Mina is Monday, Lita is Tuesday, Amy is Wednesday, and Rini and I got Thursday and Friday. On the weekends, we'll alternate every few hours. I think that's it."
"Well let's get started, we have to get to the temple to discuss our new enemies anyway," said Mina already getting up.
"Not that she'd be much help," mumbled Serena, "seems how she's missed every battle."
"Well that's gonna be part of the meeting, and why we're going to start keeping an eye on her." Said Lita stating what Serena already knew.
"Yea I know."
"What have we gathered about these guys so far?" asked Rei, everyone looked at Amy.
She looked up her data on her mini computer. "Well they all work for this girl Kimberly, and say she's some kind of princess. She doesn't want the entire universe, just our Solar System apparently. They are always men, and human, but every time Serena uses her crystal on them, they turn to dust anyway. Same if we destroy them normally. What kind of humans do that?" Amy was truly stumped on this one.
"Maybe we should capture one of them," suggested Serena, "and question him." Everyone was staring at her, "What?"
"That's a good idea Serena," said Lita. "I'm shocked Amy didn't suggest it first."
"Me too," said Mina and the others nodded in agreement.
"Hey! I can come up with a good idea every once in a while," complained Serena as she turned from the group to pout.
Amy trying to move on with the plan, "Well it was a good idea and a great start, but these guys are not your normal humans. One of them was throwing energy balls, and others were like super humans. We blasted them and still nothing!"
"We don't have any strategy!" declared Lita while getting up to pace.
Serena's pager went off. She looked at it and found it was Darien, and it dawned on her that they were supposed to be meeting with the wedding planner. "Omigosh!" she screamed scrambling to her feet and running for the door. "Gotta go guys, fill me in later!" and she was gone.
Amy sighed and said, "Meeting over."
"That's everything your highness," as the raven-haired general wrapped up her report.
"So they're planing to capture one of my lovers, I don't care what you do, but make sure they don't." Princess Kimberly was slowly losing her patience. She thought her general had better taste in worriers. She only took the best men.
"Do you think one of them could get captured?"
"Well, with the way you pick the first one you see, of course they will. Maybe it's time I find someone more capable."
"I'll take care of it."
"Don't fail me, and choose carefully, I think we need to watch who we're up against."
The general shimmered out. Kimberly got up from her throne and walked over to her crystal orb she summoned the image of her love. Unfortunately, that stupid moon twit was clinging to him again. With her anger growing, a thought struck her, and she wondered why it never occurred before. If you want something done right, do it yourself.
"Oh Darien, how long has it been since we watched the sunset from the lake?" asked Serena while snuggling closer into the crook of Darien's arm.
"Too long," he answered and sighed. It had been a long time, and he had forgotten how relaxing it was. Especially when holding Serena in his arms while watching the purpling sky. They stayed there until they saw the first star and Serena shivered in the cool night air. "Maybe we should get you home."
"Okay," she said as she shivered again. Darien took off his jacket and wrapped it around her shoulders. "Thanks." He smiled down at her lovingly.
The moment though was broken by a woman's scream. The two of them ran in the direction of the screaming. When they got there, they saw the shrieking woman with a man trying to force himself on her.
Darien grabbed the man by the back of his shirt and pulled him away. The guy hit the ground, took one glance at Darien and ran. Coward. Well the girl had thrown herself onto Darien and was clinging to him like a leech while sobbing 'Thank yous' and 'My heroes'. Serena saw red and before the women could give him a reward kiss, she broke them apart.
As she stood in front of Darien, blocking him from the other female, she got a good look at her. She was attractive and about nineteen or twenty if she had to guess. The woman had honey colored hair and fresh grass green eyes. She was a little taller than Serena, but still shorter than Darien by a few inches. Serena saw nothing that would make her stand out in a crowd, maybe because she didn't want to find anything, but she shook that thought away as quickly as it came.
She was also looking at Serena's profile, when she finished she put on the phoniest smile Serena had ever seen and stuck out her hand. "My name is Kim, thank you so much for your help. Your names are?"
"I'm Serena and this is my fiancé Darien. And your welcome, Darien just can't help helping a damsel in distress." At this comment, Darien gave a sheepish smile.
"Well I'm glad, and very grateful." said Kim as Serena, Darien, and herself shook hands.
"It was no problem at all. We were glad to help weren't we Serena?"
"Of course, helping people is what we do best after all. It was nice meeting you Kim, but we have to get going. Maybe we'll even meet again sometime." Serena began to pull Darien along.
"It was nice meeting you," he said over his shoulder.
When they were out of hearing distance Kim smiled to herself and stated, "Oh we'll definitely be meeting again, that you can be sure of."

Author Notes (my sob story in case you're wondering where I've been)
Okay well that's one chapter, I've planned to write two more during Spring Break, not sure if it's gonna happen, but I'm gonna try really hard. Ready for my sob story. Well it all starts in February, yea I know that was awhile ago, see my grandpa died. On the day before Valentine's Day and on the fifteenth we flew down to Florida for the memorial ceremony. I spent a week down there with no computer access. And when I got back I was still really upset and not in a writing mood, plus all the schoolwork I had to make up. It was a lot, and brought my grades down. Well my teachers are evil and gave me tons of work especially my history teacher who is super bitch. So, I was busy into the month of March, and by the time I had time to write I was stuck. That cursed writer's block. Then what came out in stores, none other than Kingdom Hearts 2 (I know no reason to feel sorry for me there) of course I got the game the day of release and was playing it every chance I got, which wasn't often. School is a bitch. Midterms right into April, and then there was Pride Week, and finally Spring Break, where I've been trying to write. This is the crap I have so far, and I still have homework to do, and more to write. I'm still trying to get caught up.And I have a cold. Fell a little sorry for me.
Important: Review. Okay, review please. I tried, and I have an ending in my head, it's getting there that takes the hard work. Thank you to those who are faithful I will try for chapter 10 in the next few days, but this is me and obviously, I'm bad with promises, so I'll try my hardest. Thank you my reviewers I love you all so please review and tell me how bad it is. Come on someone tell me how horrible it is so I can cry. I feel like shit anyway.
til next time . . .
