A/N: This is a bit of both Anime and Live action mixed together
Chapter ten: Epilogue
My name is Tsukino Usagi. It's been four years since the final battle and now we are just normal girls. But not all of us are doing normal things. My friend Ami Mizuno went to college in America during her highschool years. She passed every test with flying colors and rumor has it that she is the youngest doctor ever. Rei Hino has had a mysterious power since she was a little girl so she has been training to refine that power in the Kyoto mountians. Minako (my sister) is touring the world so I can't always see her. Makoto is a wedding planner now and is helping me with my own wedding. It seemes like so long ago that we were all together, but they'll always be in my heart. The outer senshi have restored thier lives. Michiru is still playing the violin, I see her from time to time as well as Haruka who still races off and on. Hotaru attends Jubann high now, and gets A's in all her classes.
"Usagi" I turned to see Luna, who is no longer a cat, she has remained a human girl.
"What is it Luna?" I asked. She pointed to the clock.
"You're going to be late" She said. I glanced at the time and nearly dropped the skillet.
"Arigato" I said, rushing out of the kitchen. A second later I was running to Zach's apartment. I arrived with two seconds to spare. Zach laughed at the expression on my face. He led me inside and gave me a glass of water.
"What are we doing today?" He asked. I flipped open my notebook.
"We have to give Makoto a list of guests and than I was planning a quiet lunch. Oh, and later I have to go buy my dress. You can't be there for that" I told him. Zach pouted.
"Why not?" He asked.
"Because it's bad luck" I retorted playfully. We laughed.
Oh I almost forgot to mention the others. Mamoru owns a company and is married to a lovely woman named Hina. I hear she is expecting twins. Nathan works at the Crown arcade with Motoki and Ken owns a few shares in Mamoru's company. As for Jason, I sadly regret to say that we haven't been able to find him. He died before the destruction of Earth, so he may not even be alive, but we are still looking.
"What are you thinking about?" Zach asked. I sighed.
"I was thinking about Jason. Where could he be Zach, we've looked everywhere. I don't want him to be dead" Tears filled my eyes.
"Hey now" Zach said gently. "We don't know that he's dead. He could be very much alive"
"But why hasn't he contacted us?" I asked. Zach sighed.
"I don't know" He said. We left his apartment and headed to the Crown Arcade. Even though Zach and I both had a car, we liked walking better. As we crossed the park, I spotted Mamoru and Hina.
"Oi!" I shouted waving. Mamoru turned and saw me. He and Hina walked over to us.
"Same old Usagi" He joked. I pushed him playfully.
"When is the baby due?" I asked. Hina patted her stomach, which had grown larger.
"Two months" She said enthusastically. I smiled.
"Are you having a baby shower?" I asked.
"I don't know. Mamoru and I are awefully busy." She said. "In fact, we better get going. It was nice seeing you Usagi" I smiled as the couple walked away. When we entered the arcade, Makoto and Motoki were going over the plans for the wedding.
"Konnichiwa Makoto, Motoki" We greeted. Makoto looked up.
"Usagi, do you have the list" Makoto asked. I handed her a sheet of paper and she glanced at it. "Arigato, I will send invitations as soon as possible" She said. She looked to see if anyone was listening to the conversation, than she leaned forward. "I think I've found Jason" She whispered.
"Where?" I asked urgently.
"Over at Jubann medical center. The doctors say that he was found raving about a princess and the moon. They are thinking about placing him in the psych ward, if no one comes to claim him." Makoto told me. I gasped.
"Zach, we have to go see him" I said. Zach nodded.
"Makoto, I'll meet you at 1:00 for dress fitting" I said as Zach and I rushed out the door. When we reached the Medical Center, We were led to a small room. A man was lying on the bed, staring at the ceiling. I walked over.
"Jason" I whispered softly. The man looked at me. It was Jason, but he seemed different. His eyes seemed dull and lifeless. He stood up and walked towards me.
"Kill Princess" He said. "Kill Princess" I staggered back. Zach grabbed him and held him.
"What's wrong with him?" I asked worriedly.
"I don't know, but..." Before he could say anything else a young woman appeared. She looked like a younger version of Beryl. She snapped her fingers and I felt myself being drawn away from Zach.
Zach was horrified when the woman appeared. Just like that, his fiance, and best friend were taken. He ran out of the hospital. What does this mean? He wondered.
Ami was in her office when she got the call from Luna. She couldn't believe that it was happening again. She stood up and began running out of the hospital. She hoped she could get to Japan in time.
Rei couldn't believe it. Someone had kidnapped thier precious Usagi. She stood up and the candles lit, showing her anger. She knew that there was no way around it. She had to return to Jubann.
Minako was recording a song when she felt a wrenching pain in her gut. Her manager ran to her side.
"Minako, are you okay?" He asked. She nodded quickly.
"I have to go" She gasped out, running from the studio. Why now, Why Usagi, she asked her self as she ran.
Makoto was in the secret room waiting for everyone. Rei was the first to arrive. Once everyone, including the generals and Mamoru were there, Zach told them exactly what had happened.
"But what can we do?" Rei asked. "We no longer have our senshi powers" Just than a beam of light shone in the room and Queen Serenity stood before them.
"Your Majesty" They all bowed.
"There is a way for you to save Usagi" Serenity told them.
"Nani?" Rei asked. "We lost our powers" Serenity smiled gently.
"The crystal has been repaired" She waved her hand and the crystal appeared in midair. "Touch it and regain your powers, temperarily"
"What about Usagi?" Makoto asked.
"Her heart is with you" Serenity replied. They each touched the crystal and felt the source of power through each of them. Serenity dissapeared.
"Let's do this" Rei said.
I sat shivering in my cell. Jason was on the opposite side of the cell, eyes still dull. Whatever she had done to him, She would pay. I felt something against my neck and when I looked down I saw, to my surprise, My transformation locket.
"Thank you Mother" I whispered. I stood up.
"Moon Prism Power" I shouted transforming into Sailor Moon. I ran over to Jason.
"Jason, look at me" I commanded. He turned towards me and I looked deep into his eyes. He blinked twice as the blue came back into his eyes. "Remember" I whispered. He coughed a couple times and I helped him stand.
"Serenity" He whispered.
"It's me Jason, I'm here" I said softly. He hugged me tight as if he's never let me go.
"We gotta get out of here" I said.
"I don't think so" Came a girlie voice. The woman who had captured us, appeared before us.
"Who are you?" I demanded. She giggled.
"My name is Brenda" She said. "I will let you go in one condition"
"And what is that?" I asked.
"I want your fiance'" She replied. I shook my head fervantly.
"Never" I cried.
"Very well" She said, snapping her fingers and three monsters appeared. "good luck trying to escape"
When Usagi's friends reached the castle, they felt a shiver as they stared at the dark ruins.
"It looks like something out of a horror novel" Ami whispered. Cautiously they entered the castle. There was debri everywhere.
"Where are they, do you think?" Rei whispered. No one knew.
"Why hello there" Came a voice. A woman appeared before them. "Nice of you to come play" She dissapeared.
"Where'd she go" Zach asked.
"I'm right here" She said. They looked up to see her hanging from a chandelier.
"Let Usagi go" Zach commanded. She floated down.
"You're no fun" She pouted.
"And you are?" A voice inquired. They turned to see Jason and Sailor Moon.
"How did you..." Brenda began.
"Escape" Usagi finished. "It was a peice of cake" Brenda frowned, than smiled again.
"None of you can leave unless I get him" She pointed to Zach.
"Over my dead body" Sailor Moon hissed launching herself at Brenda. Brenda snapped her fingers and Sailor Moon flew into the air and landed in a heap on the floor. Brenda laughed.
"You witch" Zach shouted. This made Brenda angry and She transformed into a hideous monster with fangs and sharp talons.
"Watch out" Jason cried pushing Rei out of the way as the monster swung at them.
"Sailor Scouts attack together" Sailor Moon commanded standing up. The Sailor Scouts nodded.
"Mercury Aqua Mist"
"Venus Love me Chain"
"Moon Healing Activation"
All of the powers combined into Sailor Moons Tiara causing it to glow brightly as she yelled.
"Moon Tiara Magic" and hurled the tiara and the monster. The monster shrieked in agony and exploded. The scouts breathed a sigh of relief as thier transformations dissapeared.
As the bells of the church rang, A lovely newly wedded couple exited the church. Usagi's friends stood on one side and Zach's friends on the other. Ikuko was crying into Kenji's shirt and Luna threw rose petals in front of them. Usagi smiled. This was the happiest she had been in a long time. She waved to her family and friends and she and Zach took off in a shiny new convertible.
And that my friends, Is thier Happily Ever After
