Forever in Your Debt Part 1
It's been a few months since the Ronin Warriors met the Sailor Scouts. Since then, they didn't know what to do and they weren't sure if they'd ever see each other again, then one day the Ronin Warriors got a message from the Sailor Scouts.
"Hey, is anyone there?" Sailor Mercury asked through her communicator, "Sai? Mia? Anybody?"
"This is Mia," Mia talked in the microphone connected to the computer, "Sailor Mercury? It's so good to hear you!! What's up?"
"We need your help again! Something terrible has happened!"
"What is it?" Mia asked in concern, "Amy, what's the matter?"
"Where are the Ronin Warriors?" Sailor Mercury asked, not answering Mia's question.
"They're outside training."
"Good, they will need it," Sailor Mercury. "We will teleport there in a little while, could you tell the guys for me? I'm waiting for the other Sailor Scouts."
"Of course Sailor Mercury, we'll be waiting for you," Mia said, "over and out." She went outside where the boys were training, they were in their sub armor "hey guys, you won't believe the news I have for you!"
"Oh no! Please don't tell me that Tulpa's came back alive!" Kento groaned.
"No," she went down the steps. "I got a message from Sailor Mercury. It sounds urgent."
"Are the Sailor Scouts in trouble?" Sai asked.
"I'm afraid so, they will be teleporting here any minute."
"It's a good thing we decided to train today," Sage said. "Did Sailor Mercury say anything else?"
Mia shook her head, "I guess she wanted to tell us in person."
"It's been a long time since we've heard from them," Ryo said. "I wonder how they are."
"I guess you'll get your chance, Ryo," Rowen said, "I think that's them now!"
A whirl wind began twirling and they saw the Sailor Scouts outline's in a patch of smoke. The Sailor Scouts let go of hands and they turned to their old friends. Luna and Artemis rubbed their heads against Whiteblaze's legs. "Hi guys!" Sailor Venus said, "did you miss us?"
"Sailor V!" Kento shouted, he ran up to her and lifted her in his arms. He twirled her around, "It's so good to see you again!"
"You bet we missed ya!" Sage said, "hi Sailor Jupiter."
"Hi Sage," she said.
"What's the matter?" Mia asked, "please, come inside where we can talk." The Sailor scouts followed them inside and sat next to their counterparts.
"The Doom Phantom," Sailor Moon answered, "and Prince Diamond. He's trying to take over the Earth!"
"He even captured Tuxedo Mask and turned him against us," Sailor Mars added.
"Who's he?" Ryo asked.
"It's Sailor Moon's, well, boyfriend," Sailor Mercury replied.
"Ohhh," Rowen said. "Hmm, well," he wasn't sure what to say because he liked Sailor Moon.
"I'm sorry, Rowen," Sailor Moon apologized, "I should've told you."
"It's okay," he murmured, "I understand. What can we do?"
"Sounds like this Doom Phantom is some pretty bad guy," Kento said, rubbing Artemis' back.
"He is, he has Rini too," Sailor Moon said.
"Rini?" Mia asked, raising an eyebrow.
"My future daughter, I know it sounds strange," Sailor Moon said, "she came from the future to find her mom, which is me."
"How old is she?" Rowen asked.
"'Bout the same age as Yuli."
"Hear that?" Kento said, nudging Yuli, "you might have a friend!"
"Cool!" Yuli muttered, "but where is she?"
"I told you, the Doom Phantom has her." Sailor Moon fumed, "he turned her against us, her and Tuxedo Mask."
"We weren't sure what to do, so we came here," Sailor Jupiter said, "We'd better get back before everything is destroyed!"
"That's true," Sage said, "we're glad you came, Sailor Jupiter."
"Yeah, what else would we be able to do?" Kento added, "you can count on us!"
"We shouldn't leave right away," Sailor Mercury protested, "Sailor Moon should rest. We all do."
"I'm all right, Mercury," Sailor Moon rose to her feet. "The fate of the world lies in our hands, not just for us, but the Ronin Warriors as well."
"Mercury's right, Sailor Moon," Venus said, yawning, "I could use a nap myself and we just got here!"
"I don't care, it's my family over there!"
"Stop whining Sailor Moon," Mars shouted.
"I only wanted to be a normal teenager," Sailor Moon griped, "I'm not cut out to be the moon princess!"
"Maybe you could use a nap," Luna said comfortably, "maybe just a little one. I know I do!"
"Yeah, Sailor Moon, you could sleep almost anywhere!" Sailor Mars laughed, then yawned.
"You might be kind of hungry too," Mia observed, "listen, you're safe here, you don't need to rush."
"Thanks, Mia," Sailor Mercury yawned, "we're all exhausted from the fight. It's amazing that we got out alive."
"You can rest in my room," Sai offered, lending her his arm and pulling her to her feet. She leaned against him as he walked her to his room.
"We'll take you to our rooms," Sage said, "come with me, Jupiter." They took the exhausted Sailor Scouts to their rooms so they could rest while the Ronin Warriors talked about a plan.
"I'm worried about them," Yuli said, coming back from checking on them, "and this Rini person."
"Me too, Yuli," Mia agreed, making soup for the girls, "are you sure we should let the Sailor Scouts fight in the shape they're in?"
"They should feel better after they get some rest," Sai said.
"It's a good thing they came to us," Sage said, "they might not be able to survive another fight on their own."
"It's also been a while since we were fighting," Ryo said, "good thing we decided to train today."
"Yeah, that's right!" Kento said with a laugh.
"The Sailor Scouts really need our help," Ryo told them encouragingly, "so we will have to give this fight all we've got."
They heard some noise in the back bedrooms. Sailor Venus and Sailor Mars woke up, they were out of their uniforms. They yawned and stretched.
"That was a quick nap," Kento said.
"How are you feeling, Raye?" Ryo asked, shifting to the side and holding his arm out toward her.
"Couldn't sleep," Raye explained.
"Me neither," Mina said. "I could only rest my eyes for a few minutes."
"Well, the soup is ready," Mia said kindly, "you should at least eat a little."
"We'll try," Raye said, sitting next to Ryo.
"I just hope the others have a better chance getting to sleep," Mina sighed, she sat on Kento's lap. "Especially Serena."
"She really needs some rest," Raye agreed.
Kento slipped his arm around Mina's waist, "don't you worry about a thing. We'll help you."
Amy and Lita were the next to wake up. Lita went to Mia to help with the soup and Amy took a glass of water. "I feel a little better now," Amy murmured to Raye and Mina. "Did you two sleep any?"
"Not much," Raye said, "I hope Serena can get some sleep."
"Lost cause, Raye," Serena yawned.
"Serena, you should be resting," Rowen said, walking toward her.
"I can't get to sleep until this over," she protested.
"At least try the soup," Mia urged, giving her a bowl of soup, "you need to keep your strength up."
Serena forced a laugh, "thank you, you sound like my mom."
The girls ate as much soup as they could, which wasn't much. "I guess we should get going now," Raye said.
"What about Luna and Artemis?" Lita asked, "I think they're still asleep!"
"I'll wake them," Mina said, "hey, Artemis, let's go!" she walked into her room to get him up from his little catnap.
"Listen, Sailor Scouts, I want you to know that I'm glad you came to see us," Ryo told them, "we'll do our best to help you."
"Thanks, Ryo," Raye said.
Mina came out carrying Luna and Artemis, "I think you had a long enough nap," she told them.
"Well, Sailor Scouts, transform and teleport!" Luna urged, "the Ronin Warriors haven't seen your new powers."
"New powers?" Sai mumbled.
"Right! Come on Sailors!" Serena said, holding up her locket, "Moon Crystal Power!"
"Mercury Star Power!"
"Mars Star Power!"
"Jupiter Star Power!"
"Venus Star Power!"
Yuli, Mia and the Ronin Warriors watched the Sailor Scouts transform. "Star Power?" they murmured to each other. When they were done transforming, they were ready to teleport.
"Well boys, now it's time for you to see our home!" Sailor Jupiter said.
"You've never telported with someone else before," Luna objected.
"Doesn't mean we can't," Sailor Mercury said, "we can do it and even without draining all our power."
"Really?" Sailor Moon asked.
"Really," Sailor Mercury confirmed, "have a bit of confidence, anything's possible."
And as Sailor Mercury had said, they made it to their home, even the Ronin Warriors. "We're just in time!" Sailor Moon cried. They were standing along the river bank.
"Boy, that ride made me thirsty," Kento mumbled, leaning over the water to cup up the water and drink it.
Sai watched him as he was about to drink the water, something was wrong, "Kento, no! Don't drink the water!" he grabbed him and pulled him back.
"Sai, what is it?" Kento demanded, "it's only water, buddy."
"No, it isn't, look!" he pointed at the river. Dead fish floated up to the surface and the water bubbled, it was a light green, like acid. "Sekmet," he murmured. "But how, I thought he was dead!"
"All the Dark Warlords are dead, they sacrificed themselves so we could escape," Mia said.
"Then who's poisoning the water?" Sage asked.
"I didn't know that water pollution was this bad!" Sailor Jupiter cried.
"It's not water pollution," Sailor Mercury said, "look, I see something!" she pointed to a red spike, heading toward them, "what is it?"
"I recognize that thing," Sai said, "It's Red Torrent!"
Red Torrent was heading toward the land like a torpedo, and it rose up higher and higher, until it was all revealed. "Look, another!" Sailor Venus said, pointing at the rocks, "Kento, it looks like yours!"
"Our armors!" Kento grumbled, "I hope we can suit up."
"Let's try it," Ryo said, "Ronin Warriors, to arms! Armor of Wildfire…Tao Jin!"
"Armor of Strata…Tao Inochi!"
"Armor of Hardrock…Tao Gi!"
"Armor of Torrent...Tao Shin!"
"Armor of Halo…Tao Chi!"
Their armors were still able to be suited up, which was good. Somehow, somebody made copies of their armors and made them evil. "Attack!" Ryo cried, advancing to his armor copy.
"We'll help you," Sailor Mars said. "Mars…Celestial…Fire…Surround!" her attack knocked the fake Wildfire armor back, but didn't destroy it.
"Hey, that was pretty good," Ryo said, "you have gotten new powers!"
"Drat, it didn't do anything!"
"Let's just try again," he said, "Flare up Now…!"
"I have to fight him in the water," Sai told Sailor Mercury, "but the fish…"
"Never mind the fish," Sailor Mercury urged, "Sai, just do what you gotta do!"
Sai jumped toward Red Torrent, dunking him in the water, "This is the last time we battle, Red Torrent!"
"and this is when you die!" Red Torrent shouted, "Super Wave Smasher!!"
"There's no time for this, we need to stop the Doom Phantom!" Sailor moon cried.
"Don't worry, Sailor Moon," Rowen said, "leave it to me! Arrow Shock Wave!"
"We got to do something, scouts!" Sailor Mercury said.
"But what?" Sailor Jupiter shouted, battling along Sage's side, "try talking them out of it?"
"I kow," Sailor Mercury whispered, "Mars, come here!"
"What is it, Mercury?" Mars asked.
"I have a plan, I will freeze the armors and I need to you use a charm against the armors, they're possessed by Netherspirits, if you…"
"I got it! You're a genius, Sailor Mercury!" She pulled out five charms and held them across her forehead, "Ready when you are, Mercury!
"Sai, get out of the water!" Sailor Mercury shouted. "Now!!" She took a deep breath and dove in the water.
"Super Wave Smasher!" Sai shouted, a gush of water threw Red Torrent out of the water and in the air. Sailor Mercury swam to Sai and pulled him to the surface.
"Shine Aqua Illusion!!" Her water froze all the armors. "Now, Mars!"
"I call upon the power of Mars, Fireball charge!" she threw the charms at the armors, "evil spirits, be gone!"
The Nether Spirit's left the fake armors and then they fell down, disintegrating and adding power to the real armors of the Ronin Warriors.
"That was awesome," Kento said. "I am surprised Rowen didn't even think of that!" He said, slapping Rowen on the back.
Sai said as Sailor Mercury helped him on the shore. "Thanks Mercury."
"Are you all right?" she asked.
"Of course, the water adds power to my armor," he said.
"Come on, let's keep moving," Ryo urged.
"Not so fast!" Wicked Lady shouted.
"It's her, it's Rini!" Sailor Moon cried.
"She doesn't look my age," Yuli muttered.
"Don't call me Rini! I'm Wicked Lady!"
"Rini, it's me! It's Sailor Moon!"
"Rini, we're your friends, don't you remember?" Sailor Jupiter asked.
"You are not my friends, you never loved me!" Wicked Lady snarled.
"Of course we are, Rini!" Sailor Mercury said. "Try to remember!"
"Shut up!" she demanded, she shot a black laser at them but they dodged it.
"We've got to stop her!" Sailor Mars said, "but how?"
"Would a charm work?" Ryo asked.
"I can try," Sailor Mars said, taking out her charms.
"No Mars," Sailor Moon said, "this is my fight. Let me handle it." She walked up to Rini, "Rini, listen to me, I'm your mother! If you don't stop now, you're grounded!"
"I know you don't love me!" Rini shouted.
"Of course I do," she said, "you're not Wicked Lady, you're Rini, don't you understand? You came to the future to find your mother and you have, Rini. It's me. If you destroy me, you won't see your mother in the future, you won't see the sailor scouts either. Please try to understand. Don't you remember"
Tuxedo Mask appeared behind Rini and he too was under Doom Phantom's spell. He threw the rose at Sailor Moon and she knocked it out of the way, "Darien, listen to me!! I know you know who I am. I freed you from this spell before and I can do it again!"
"Not a chance!" he snapped.
Rowen sneaked behind Tuxedo Mask and grabbed him, putting him in a full nelson (it's a wrestling move, I know Rowen isn't a wrestler, but I think it's a cool move!). "Listen to her, buddy! She loves you and you're supposed to love her!"
"Who are you?" Tuxedo Mask demanded, "let go of me!" He tried shaking out of his grasp, but he couldn't. His top hat fell off.
"No way," Rowen tightened his grasp.
"Darien, please, listen to me! It's me, Serena. Remember how happy we were together?"
"Stop it, Sailor Moon!" Wicked Lady snarled, "The Doom Phantom is my only friend!"
"Wrong, Rini, you're wrong!" Sailor Moon shouted, "The Doom Phantom made you evil and you're not evil."
"She's right, Rini," Sailor Mercury said, "She's your mother, Tuxedo Mask is your dad!"
"Darien, please, listen to me, don't you remember me at all?"
Tuxedo Mask was silent and then, "Meatball head?"
"Well, that's not very nice!" Rowen growled.
"No, Rowen, that's what he always calls me," Sailor Moon said, "you remember don't you? I need you to help me make Rini remember who she is!"
Tuxedo Mask screamed as green light took hold of him, flinging Rowen back. "Rowen! Tuxedo Mask!" Sailor Moon cried.
Tuxedo Mask grabbed his head and fell to the ground, "my head…hurts…" the Doom Phantom tried taking over his mind again. "Make him stop….please…"
Rowen rose to his feet, "man, what a rush," he groaned.
"Daddy??" Wicked Lady mumbled, she started to change back into Rini. "Stop it Doom Phantom, leave my daddy alone!"
"I gave you more power than you can ever imagine and this is what you do with it?" The Doom Phantom growled, "Traitors! You know what I'll do with traitors!"
"And this is what we do with evil!" Ryo snarled, "Flare up….now!"
"Arrow Shock Wave!"
"Iron Rock Crusher!"
"Super Wave Smasher!"
