Disclaimers: I DO NOT own Sailormoon. It belongs to one of the best Manga writers in history, Naoko Takeuchi. She also did Sailor V, and many other titles that I have not looked into.

Omatase. (Sorry to keep you waiting).
Just an important issue that has to be addressed at this moment. 4 new characters will be introduced in this chapter. They are characters who have played a very minuscule role in the manga but have had a big chunk of airing time in the Sailormoon anime. There isn't much information on them but they will be under than English names, which I am more familiar with. And another thing. The Starlights are FEMALE. Seiya is just there to cause havoc that I very much enjoy. Heh.
Cyprine of the Death Busters is a twin. I know that. I dropped the other one thoughs. I'm happy with one. Well… unless I change my mind that is. Heh.
Aniki means older brother and personally, it's more respectful and it's depends on the relationship of the two siblings. Nii-san is another form of respect but just a step higher then 'Nii-chan'.
Things happening (noise)
If there is a mistake in my English, sorry, I'm only human and who ever heard of proofreading? Cause I don' t do it obviously nor do I have the money to hire a editor… Eh heh.
A bluish smoke emerges and reveals Sapphire, "We have more intruders Chaos-sama… It is Agent Pluto, Starlight, and the prince himself."
Diamond clenches his hand into a fist, "I'll deal with the prince."
Chaos raises his hand at him, "No. You stay here and prepare for your part in the spell… Metallia and your siblings will handle the situation."
Diamond stops and nods glancing back at the sleeping Usagi, "Wakarimashita Chao-sama."
Chaos smiles and then disappears into a fiery black flame, "Good Luck Diamond. I'm looking forward to meeting our new addition as soon as she's awakened."
Diamond nods and sighs…
Sapphire's eyes move from Usagi and then back to his brother, "Aniki, are you sure this spell is full proof?"
"Yea Nii-san… what if there's something we overlooked?"
Diamond answers Sapphire and the now appeared Emerald and Rubeus, "No, I absolutely sure there isn't. I've analyzed the spell and chemicals many many times. This is it. Moonlight Shadow WILL WORK."

A Different Time, Place, and Life
Chapter 14: Moonlight Shadow (part 2)
Mamoru looked up from his hands at the shadowed figure in front of him at the doorway, "Kunzite?"
Kunzite reached over the desk and flicked on the dim desk lamp, "What are you doing here with the light off man? You're already darkened the place enough. Do you have to make poor Usagi sleep in complete darkness?"
Mamoru's eyes shifted to the quiet sleeping Usagi on the bed.
Kunzite noted the longing in his eyes and sat next to him, "She'll be alright. It's just kind of odd of her to suddenly faint when she stepped into the dorm."
Mamoru nodded and held her hand, "It was just weird. She walked in next to me… and then fainted. It's just rather…"
They both looked up at the new voice and saw that it was Setsuna in white.
Setsuna smiled and looked at the vital screens displaying Usagi's information, "Hello Mamoru-sama. Pardon my intrusion."
Mamoru shook his head, "No. It's fine."
Setsuna nodded in her doctor coat, "Mistress Luna sent me to check up on Hime-sama here… but I do believe that it's just bizarre. She walked in all smiles and then fell."
She then gave Mamoru a different look he hasn't seen her make before, "Do you see anything odd about her here?"
Mamoru bit his lower lip looking back at Usagi and at the necklace around her neck when…
Setsuna sighed and waved at both of them, "Alright. I need both of you to take a leave from Hime-sama here. I need to perform a check on her vitals."
Kunzite nodded and then made his way to the door, but had to come back and drag poor Mamoru out, "Come on buddy."
Mamoru then nodded unwillingly and followed him out while closing the door behind him…
"Mamoru, you have to pull yourself together. No more moping around."
Mamoru eyes him and sighed, "I haven't seen Minako-san like this… it'll be interesting if that happened eh?"
Kunzite looks at him with widen eyes of fear, "NO. Minako is NUTS when she's sick. She turns into a 5 year old."
Mamoru smirked at him as they continue down the hall and stairs from Usagi's room and into the lab where all the residents work on lab assignments assigned by Artemis and Luna as extra studies. This was basically where Setsuna spends hours as well…
Mamoru and Kunzite's jaw drops seeing the tall female figure with violet colored hair in a ponytail, "SETSUNA-senpai?"
Setsuna turns around as her ponytail waves around with her; she blinks while holding a beaker in her left and a test tube in her right with a pen in her mouth, "Hm?"
This was when she turned back around to place her things down and turned around again, "Yes Oujisama?" She smiled her familiar smile at him, "Do you need me for something?"
Mamoru scratches his head confused when Kunzite starts, "Weren't you just in Usagi's room checking on her vitals?"
Setsuna blinked again puzzled, "Huh? I haven't gone yet Prince. I've been cooped up in here working under Luna's highest priority on the silver crystal and magic wands while-" she was cut short when she sensed something out of place, her eyes flew to her coat rack, "One of my coats is gone."
Luna then appeared at the doorway, "Setsuna! We have a intruder that has managed to dodge our system for the past 2 minutes!"
Setsuna nods, "From Mistress Usagi's room!"
Mere minutes ago, back in the room where Usagi was quietly resting…
Setsuna closed her eyes and mutter several words of a different language when her image suddenly shifted to reveal a familiar gold dressed female.
She stretched a bit and smirked at Usagi, "You can get up now you twit. I set a spell that enables you to move around."
Usagi's eyes snap open and she glares at her, "Screw you Galaxia. You have no idea what kind of hell I've been though. How the hell did you get through?"
Galaxia smirked looking her up and down, "You should never doubt me. I am Chaos' best warrior unlike you Usagi-chan."
Usagi's face twisted with bitterness, "Don't you dare call me that you half-wit." That was where her flowing glow blonde hair fizzed into a blood red color and fangs grew in her teeth, "I hate that girl. The prince has done nothing but sit here and stare at her image. It's disgusting… what are doing here anyway?"
Galaxia said nonchalantly, "To give you this." She handed Beryl a gold moon shaped pendant, "Chaos and Diamond advised me to make you wear this."
Beryl looked at the gold moon disgustedly, "Ew. You're kidding. I'm not wearing a gold moon."
Galaxia rolled her eyes, "Come on dimwit, I don't have much time left. This purifying feeling is making me sick. Take it."
Beryl smirked back at her while running her hand through her ragged red hair, "No. What do I need it for?"
Galaxia motioned to her neck, "You feel anything there?"
Beryl's hand flew up and her eyes widen, "Where the hell is the pendant?"
Galaxia smiled and nodded while twirling the necklace on her pointer finger round and round, "Yes. The one you were wearing before was an illusion. You are damn lucky the prince hasn't laid his hand on it yet for the past hour he was in here. If he did, your image as the moon girl would have dissipated into the ugly image you are now." Galaxia's favorite smirk appeared again as she glanced at the pictures around Usagi's room…
Beryl cursed at her and snapped her finger; in a mere second the necklace was around her neck, only it started choking her. Galaxia smirked and chuckled at her choking face, which was when she snapped her fingers, and the necklace loosened to fit comfortably around Beryl's neck. She shook her head and sighed, "Tsk Tsk Beryl. You really have to work on your placement spells."
Beryl only continued to glare at her, "Shut up."
Galaxia raised an eyebrow at her, "haha. You are also pretty bad with your comebacks. Just make sure you stall enough time or it's the end for you."
Suddenly there was a banging on the door, "Usagi!"
Galaxia sighed yet again, "Man… I've been sighing a lot lately. What a restless life I've been living. Which is where I bid you a farewell pathetic twit."
Beryl grunted and folded her arms up, "Yea. Be gone you pest."
From outside, they heard Luna's muttering of holy words to unlock the barrier.
Galaxia raised two fingers to her lips, "Lucky how getting out of here is a lot easier than infiltrating this place. Oh. And you better change back." Beryl's eyes widened in panic watching Galaxia muttered two words in the middle of a wink and disappeared into thin air while she muttered her own and fell to the ground in Usagi's form.
The door barged open with Kunzite and Mamoru in first with Setsuna, Luna, and Artemis behind them along with many others of the Moon dorm's residents.
Mamoru rushed to Beryl's Usagi form and lifted her onto bed, "What happened?"
Artemis took Luna's hand and they prayed together saying holy words of the moon… Light shone from their hands and the black barrier dispersed. Luna looked around and nodded to Artemis. He waved to Setsuna and Kakyu at the door, which they both nodded as well.
Luna faced the audience, "I'm sure all of you here sensed the darkness but it was too late. Usagi's room has been infiltrated so I want all of you to go Rei's temple quarters to practice on your chi levels. This is a serious matter. Now get going."
Artemis waved to everyone, "Scatter! It doesn't matter what work you have in school or your extracurricular activities. This is a level one priority for this moment in time."
With the hallway cleared out, Luna waved Mamoru and everyone out of Usagi's room.
She closes the door and faces Kakyu, "I want you to cast a special barrier spell with your plant powers and make sure this room freezes so no one can enter it."
Kakyu nods turning around and facing the door starts a spell, while Mamoru raises his voice, "WHAT?"
Luna ignores his outburst and faces Setsuna; "You need to figure out how to work the crystals as soon as possible which also includes finding the location of the rest of the wands."
Setsuna smiles accepting her new order, "Yes Luna."
Mamoru makes an annoyed face and Luna turns he attention to him, "I need you to tell me whose hair this is." A red wavy hair flies from his black shirt and hovers in front of them, "I don't think anyone here has such a hair…"
Mamoru's eyes widen at the hovering piece of hair and he nods with a serious look on his face, "Yes Luna."
Luna smiles seeing a maturing prince, "Good. I want your report a.s.a.p."
Mamoru moves his hands in a circle to make a bubble taking the hair inside, "Forgive me for my impoliteness."
Luna shakes her head as he makes his way to the lab. She glances at Artemis with a motherly smile on her face, "I think our prince is becoming a man."
Artemis chuckles as a father would, "I'm glad I found him at that orphanage when I did."
Mamoru takes his seat in the lab at his special spot and scans the hair into the computer… As the computer scanned it he began to retrace the situation that happened the night before…
"Hey. Mamoru, what are you doing?"
Mamoru kept his eyes on the computer screen while answering Jadeite while typing into the computer, "Something."
Setsuna's cool demeanor smile appeared as she observed the code Mamoru typed in, "How clever you are Oujisama."
Mamoru smirked still tapping the keys at the rapid speed, "You recognize it?"
Setsuna nods, "Tracking device. A very original and complicated one you have put together. So may I ask where is this device?"
Mamoru smiled, "A early birthday gift for her and it's already around her neck."
Jadeite chuckled glancing at Rei, "You are very slick Mamoru-sama."
Mamoru nodded and tapped the enter key for the last time when a map appeared with a dot blinking in the center, "I slipped it around her neck before she left. It has a special spell on it so that only I can be the only one to take it off."
"Only you?" said Seiya.
Mamoru looked at him, "yea, that is if she wanted me to dispel the spell."
Seiya just gave him a look, "that's creepy."
Mamoru shrugs, "It's a safety feature that is perfect for this situation that way we can locate her."
Seiya sighed and nodded, "It seems like damn perfect timing if you ask me…"
Diamond looked up from the opposite of the room from the old scroll he was reading, "What are you talking about Rubeus?"
Rubeus pointed at the moon and star gold necklace around Usagi's neck, "I thought you changed everything that she was wearing."
Sapphire looked over from the other side and blinked, "He's right Aniki. She was wearing that before."
Diamond approached her and reached for the necklace when a sudden blinding light threw him to the wall, "UGH!"
Emerald rushed in from the side, "Aniki!"
Rubeus narrowed his eyes at the necklace, "That can't be good."
"No shit." Said Diamond as he got up refusing Emerald's help.
"Looks like the prince put something special that I now have to deal with."
"I want droids, shadows, clones and any other monsters to hold off the Earth prince and his pathetic entourage."
Wiseman nodded at Chaos's command to Mistress 9, "you are very clever Chaos-sama."
Chaos took his seat next to him and picked up a glass of red wine on the floating coffee table, "Moonlight Shadow has been a plan that's been in the factory for months. If this doesn't work I will get very annoyed. You know how I am when I'm annoyed right?"
Wiseman felt the chill arise in the room, "Yes. I'm very well aware of it…"
Chaos then snapped his finger and a screen appeared in front of them where it displayed Diamond along with his siblings, "They better do their part in this plan or else…"
"Is it working?" asked Emerald.
Diamond kept his cool demeanor while focusing his power pressuring the moon and star necklace that circled around Usagi's neck, "…"
Rubeus waved his hand at her lips, "Shh."
Sapphire tapped into a mini laptop that floated in front of him, "He's doing fine. Shouldn't you two be going?"
Rubeus sighed turning while Emerald rolled her eyes twirling around on her heels, "Yea yea…"
Sapphire nodded again returning his eyes to his close-eyed brother, "Ni-san, how much longer for the necklace?"
Diamond twitched hearing his voice, "This certainly is quite a piece of art; it got that damn prince's handicraft all over it."
His brother clicks his tongue, "Can you break the spell?"
Diamond opens his eyes and the dark magic field around the necklace disappears, "Damn." He takes the offered towel from Sapphire and curses, "I can't get around it in such a short amount of time… we need more distractions so I can figure how he did it."
Sapphire eyes Usagi and then the pendant, "we can't take it off, but have you tried to kiss her?"
Diamond pauses after while patting around his forehead, "no. It's not going to work. I NEED MORE TIME." He then realized something and then called out, "I know you're watching me Chaos."
Chaos smirked in his room, "Oh really?"
Diamond eyed Chaos in the now displayed screen, "Yes, and in know where you're watching me from. I have another plan that I want to propose to add on top of yours."
Chaos chuckled and swirled the wine in his glass around, "Oh? Send me a parchment with your proposal."
Diamond snapped his finger and a parchment immediately appeared next to Chaos."
Chaos blinked and then looked back at Diamond on his screen, "Quick as you usually are."
His eyes then scanned through the words on the parchment. He finished and the parchment burst into a blue flame. He grinned evilly, "Go for it. You were a genius for nothing as the Black Moon had said."
Diamond smirked full of pride, "Yes." He turned to Sapphire and motioned to him.
"Oujisama! Please go! Before it is too late and the spell is triggered. You may lose her forever if you don't leave these monsters to Agent Starlight and myself!" said Setsuna as she defended the blows from Emerald's slime droids.
Mamoru gripped his sword and yelled to her, "But they're too strong!"
Rubeus threw fireballs at the group, "You will never get through us!" Emerald combined her powers with his throwing green spears of glass at them as well, "We are members of the Black Moon family!"
Seiya, annoyed danced his way dodging the attacks, "Prince! You better go, or I will!"
Mamoru did his own pacing while holding up a shield, "But!"
Setsuna gripped her metal rod but suddenly noticed a purple crystal on Emerald's pendant. There was an unusual glow that seemed familiar to her and called her. She made a shield from mental chi and raced her way behind Emerald and grabbed the pendant, "Hey! That's mine!" This released an overflowing lavender light surrounding everyone… Mamoru opened his eyes and saw that Setsuna was in a sailor outfit and her rod had become the Garnet rod of Sailor Pluto, "Setsuna! You've transformed!"
Setsuna nodded and Seiya commented in his catching of breath, "It's temporary. Look it's fading. Now go since she has stopped Emerald and Rubeus' attacks!"
This was where he noticed that all their enemies had stopped moving…
Setsuna held her Garnet rod tighter, "Go Oujisama!"
Mamoru smiled at the two and jumped at his chance…
"You shall be mine. Finally and Forever only for me…" he leaned down over her ever closer to the sleeping Usagi's lips…
Diamond's eyes slowly blinked as he turned his face to the voice from the doorway, "Why hello Earth Prince."
Mamoru twitched feeling the cold chill crawl up his back after seeing Diamond's ice stabbing eyes, he managed to pull the words out from his voice box, "Away from her."
Diamond smirked and sighed, "Interesting and surprising. You made it all the way here so I'll give you that much credit."
Mamoru slid a vial from his pouch, "Remember this green stuff?"
Diamond glared at him, "You fool. That was because you were weak so that you had to turn to such pathetic means of attacking me."
Mamoru then smirked and shrugged, "That was because I did not need to waste my physical energy to actually put you down. Only that you did lose to my pathetic mean of attacking you."
Diamond bit his lower lip, "Right…"
Mamoru realized that he had the upper hand now and snapped his finger and plants grew from the floor, "But who gave Usagi the pendant that has protected her?"
Diamond now cursed at him and struggled to release himself from the vines, "You fool! Attacking me with nature and spells! You're useless!"
Mamoru sighed and lifted Usagi from the bed, "Whatever. You're the moron who just let me waltz in and take back what's mine." He smiled and disappeared in a white flash…
Diamond closed his eyes and smiled and started to laugh… A white curtain pulled open at the side, "Onisan. You really should get an award for playing that fool…"
Diamond nodded seeing his brother Sapphire guarding Usagi's body, "I know. I've come up with another plan to help Chaos and it's so amazing how he accepted on such a whim."
Sapphire glanced back at Usagi and then back to him, "So when are you going to come down from there?"
Diamond's smile wipes off his face, "I was never too good at deflecting nature-based spells remember? So can you undo this for me?"
Sapphire smirks nodding, "Coming."
Diamond is released from his vine prison by Sapphire's spell, "Nice to see you two."
Sapphire snaps and the vines dissipate into thin air, he then eyes Emerald noticing something different about her neck, "Where's the necklace Wiseman gave you?"
Emerald bit her lower lip while trying to catch her breath, "The Pluto witch snatched from me." As soon as she finished this line darkness covered the room and she was slapped in the dimming lights of the blue-purple candles now burning around.
Rubeus crouched down to help his sister, "Emerald!"
Diamond spoke in a calm tone with his arms crossed, "Now now… I don't see why that was necessary Mistress 9."
Mistress 9 resumed her composure, "That jewel on the necklace that you just lost is a fake copy of the sailor crystal of the legendary Princess Sailor Pluto."
Emerald rubbed the pink spot on her cheek and glared back at the elegantly dressed female, "But that doesn't mean for you to slap me…"
Mistress 9 gave her a dirty look of hate, "You lost MY crystal. Wiseman lent it to you for as an energy boost for your crappy jewel powers. You deserve much worst than what I just gave you brat."
Emerald bit her lower lip while resting her hand under her neck speechless.
Mistress 9 sighed nervously, "For all it's worth, you're damn lucky that Princess Pluto didn't grab the REAL crystal, cause we would've been fighting a useless battle. The fake had been infused from the exposure of the real crystal… You four have already acquired your energy crystals years ago. BUT, the younger siblings need a bit more training if you ask me."
Sapphire shifts slightly in his seat, "Oh really? I think you're done here Mistress 9. You've already made your point."
Diamond nodded and waved toward the door, "Please take your exit Mistress 9."
Mistress 9, annoyed at the siblings makes her way there, "Just a thing or two for you siblings, I'm not someone you should get pissed. Chaos-sama is ruthless and if you guys screw up any thing of his plan, there will be blood spilled." She then disappears in a blue-purple flame.
Rubeus clicks his tongue; "I hate it when someone of her standing does that."
Sapphire offers Emerald an ice pack made of his magic ice and says, "Don't worry about it. Mistress 9 is not able to leave this place."
Rubeus looks at him alarmed, "What?"
Emerald rubs the red spot and looks at him surprised as well.
"She's half of a whole. And before you two continue looking at Sapphire and myself like that, I'll explain." Diamond sighs, "She is the other half of Princess Saturn, reincarnation of the daughter of Princess Pluto."
Emerald groans, "And yet it gets more complicated…" She then eyes the still sleeping Usagi, "How's the plan on her?"
Diamond now groans annoyed, "I HATE the Prince."
"Do I hear that a issue has surfaced Diamond?"
Diamond answered the voice, "Again Chaos, I hate it when you do that."
The screen appears in front of him again, "Yo. What's up with the sleeping moon bunny?"
Diamond glances at Usagi and points at her necklace, "The spell will not work."
The wine glass in Chaos' hand shatters, "Come again?"
Diamond feels the chills going up his back, "Forgive me. I will repeat, the sleeping beauty spell will not work."
Chaos twitches, "Oh really."
Diamond nods, "Yes, but-"
Chaos waves his hand cutting him off, "Alright. I already figured that when I detected that stupid thing on her. I already anticipated something as stupid as a trinket like that would be in our way. We have to force her awake."
Wiseman, next to him, "That would not be wise Chaos-sama."
Chaos shrugs him off, "It'll be fine, and after the first dose of the sleeping beauty potion, I added a little something of my own in case this happened. I've sent Galaxia to their Dorm to help the pathetic Beryl give us more time."
Diamond's eyes widen listening to him and twitched annoyed, "You saw this coming?"
Chaos chuckles as a new glass floated next to him, "Someone like me is always one step ahead of the good guys." He then paused shaking his head, "Actually, scratch that; more like 10 steps ahead of the quote on quote good guys." She smirks as he reached for the wine glass of red fluid appears in front of him, "Kinda like that Nalaku dude from that Inuyeasha realm."
Sapphire glanced nervously at his older brother knowing the true essence of Chaos' power and tactical skills. It was now truly the time that he realized what he and his siblings have gotten themselves into. Now, involved with such a dangerous man and following under Wiseman for so many years…
Chaos continued as he swayed his wine glass around, "You always have to have something up your sleeve in case your opponent gets smart, just like chess. Always planning on how to get your enemy into a checkmate." He then eyed Wiseman next to him, "Have you sent for Cyprine?"
"Yes Papa?" voiced Cyprine as she appeared next to him kneeling.
Chaos patted her head, "Have you given the next set of orders to Metallia for her mission to the Millennium Dorm?"
Cyprine nodded with a smile, "Of course! Papa's orders must be carried out swiftly in order for everything to go right! That's what Papa always told Cyprine to do! Metally-chan should be already there to cause havoc!"
Chaos chuckled taking her into his lap, "You are always the best daughter in the world!"
Cyprine smiled cutely and nodded while hugging him, "You are the best papa in the world!"
Sapphire watched the two and smirked after seeing that Diamond's face was disgusted. Diamond had never liked their father too much. Neither did he himself…
"Diamond, I would like to speak to you along with Wiseman. Would the rest of you siblings take a leave? However, Rubeus, I need you to report to the Dorm front to welcome two new sisters…" said Chaos as he swirled the wine in his glass around.
Diamond eyed his siblings and nodded…
Sapphire disappeared alongside with Emerald. He found himself outside in the daylight of the sun shining down on him…
"UGH. How the heck did I end up outside in the daylight? This is going to make me darker! I'll see you later!" as Emerald squealed and disappears again. Which was when Sapphire felt something familiar, a sense of someone he knew from the past. He turned and saw a jade green haired female in black heels walking alongside a shorter female who had her violet hair flowing down to her waist. He whispered under his breath, "Prizma…" These two were being led by who he knew were Agents Uranus and Neptune of the Moon Dorm…
As surprised as Sapphire, Rubeus was now looking into the eyes of women who were also familiar to him as well, "The Ayakashi Sisters…"
SLAM. The sudden noise startled poor Hotaru as blinked stopping in time to see the Mamoru dash out of the lab. Mamoru looked over his shoulder and waved, "Sorry Hotaru-chan! I'm in a hurry!"
Hotaru clutched her chest and smiled nodding.
"Are you alright Hotaru?"
Hotaru looked at the doorway of the lab to see Setsuna offering her a hand, "Yes. Thank you."
Setsuna helped brush off the dust that had gotten on her and Hotaru tugged on her lab coat, "I was wondering…"
Setsuna smiled at her, "Yes?"
Hotaru's eyes flew to the ground, "My current mother isn't my real mother is she?"
Setsuna kept her all-knowing smile, "Why do you think that is?"
Hotaru fumbled with her fingers, "You and I have the same face… and I believe that you left me with her because you had a special mission."
Setsuna paused looking at the young teen with a slight surprise and then nodded, "Yes, but you had a condition and I needed you to be watched by someone while I had to pursue something else that you are missing…"
Hotaru put her hand to where her heart was, "the other half of me?"
Setsuna nodded, "you really have grown haven't you?"
Hotaru smiles nodding and hugs her, "Yes Mama. That one time when your power resonated with Usagi-neesan for the first time, I called you 'mama'… for the first time in 13 years, I'm definitely sure."
Setsuna's eyes start to water when she senses that she is being called…
"LUNA!!! ARTEMIS!!! I'VE FIGURED OUT WHAT AND WHERE THIS HAIR CAME FROM!" said Mamoru as he burst into the main office where the two's office resided only to see Yaten, Taiki and two new females never before seen…
Luna smirked, "And this is the Earth Prince, Mamoru."
Mamoru bowed embarrassed, "I'm sorry for abruptly disturbing you Luna."
Artemis chuckled, "Mamoru, we would like you to meet our two newest recruits. This is the older one, Prizma and the younger one here is Catzi. Their black moon powers have been extracted but they will carry out other issues within the Moon Dorm with their own special capabilities and skills."
"And now… Mamoru, you were saying?"
Mamoru's right hand held the orb with the hair inside, "I have concluded from older samples and DNA, this hair belongs to Beryl or the Dark Kingdom."
Luna and Artemis both shuddered hearing the name eyeing the red frizzy looking hair…
Artemis quickly orders, "Mamoru, show me the final lab results."
Mamoru blinks and then snaps his fingers where a file folder appears in front Artemis, "here."
Artemis's scanned quickly at the papers inside the file and then nods at Luna. Luna stands up and smiles at the new residents, "I'm sorry to cut the introductions so early but Yaten and Taiki will show you two to your new rooms."
Prizma shook her head, "No, I thank you for letting Catzi and I stay here now that we are purified of our black moon powers thanks to you."
Catzi too, smiled graciously, "Onee-sama is right, we will offer you our knowledge of what we have acquired at Black Moon Academy."
Luna nods and waves them in the direction of Yaten and Taiki.
Luna then closes the door, and calls Setsuna and Kakyu to the office with her mind-calling skill… Mere seconds later, Setsuna and Kakyu appear in front of them.
Setsuna dabs her eyes with a handkerchief, "Excuse me Luna for just a second."
A tired Kakyu stretches her arms over her head, "Yes Luna?"
Luna crosses her arms, "Setsuna, how is your research going?"
Setsuna immediately reports, "The computer is still honing in on the locations, as for the crystals, they are still a mystery to me. The wands are as well. Forgive me Luna."
Luna nods and then asks Kakyu, "How's your barrier coming along?"
Kakyu reports during her turn, "Done. But something is fighting it."
Luna questions, "fighting?"
Kakyu nods, "Some unknown existence in residing in that room."
Luna then looks to Mamoru, "alright. I have another experiment for you…"
"Nice to see you after so long Sapphire-niisan."
Sapphire shudders hearing the voice and then turns to answer, "Why hello there young Bertie-chan and Avery-san."
Avery smirks at him, "I can tell you remember us very well."
Bertie twirls her braid in her fingers, "Although I think that it's quite sad that the other half of the Ayakashi sisters aren't here."
Avery traces the pattern on the front of Sapphire's chest jacket, "You aren't missing a certain weak someone dear to us are you?"
Sapphire calmly answers as he brushes her hand off, "Watch your place Avery. Your older sister was-"
Bertie, on the other side of him places her pointer finger on his chin, "was what Sapphire-nii?"
"You two. Cut it out."
The two girls sigh and step away from him.
Rubeus appeared from his fire, "Chaos requires that you two to leave other senpai along and go through the testing in the training room."
The two girls glare at him and disappear into tiny gems shining their red and blue colors.
"Sorry about that. I had to run back to Chaos for something."
Sapphire calmly answers, "How was Diamond?"
Rubeus scratches the back of his neck, "Iffy if you ask me. The new plan isn't very convincing and Diamond has his doubts. But we are to force the moon princess awake with negative energy. If Diamond were to kiss her just like that, she'll die. The new plan has him kissing her with us honing our negative energies into her at the same time."
Sapphire has his own doubts, "exactly who is 'us'?"
Rubeus shrugs, "I'm not sure yets… but I'll be on my way… cause if those two girls cause any more havoc on others, Chaos will be on my rear. Oh another thing, be in the main hall for the main event in an hour… Laters."
Sapphire sighs and a surprise pops up in front of him, "Surprise!"
He groans and rolls his eyes, "Hi Cyprine. How may I help you?"
Cyprine, hanging upside down in front of him, pokes him in the forehead, "Aww… you're getting soft aren't you? Maybe this is a good thing for my twinny Petite-chan who is currently away…"
Sapphire narrows his eyes, "No I'm not interested in your annoying twin."
Cyprine showing her dramatic attitude and places her hand in dramatic surprise over her mouth, "Aww… you and Petite-chan would be so-"
Sapphire cuts her off abruptly, "What do you want?"
Cyprine grimaces and flips down to stand straight in front of him, "Papa wants you to go and scout after Metallia and Beryl at the Moon Dorm. He doesn't think that those two are capable of doing anything. So while you at it, send Metallia backies."
She then points at him, "YOU" and pouts, "are no FUN." She then waves and disappears, "Bye bye honey!"
Sapphire sighs takes out a small locket from his pocket. He thinks to himself, "this is pathetic. Now I'm being sent around after his mindless cronies…
He then cracks the locket open and sighs longingly at the image, "I'm sorry Prizma. It seems that I'm on the wrong side again."
Shaking his head while securing the locket's safe place inside his pocket, he mutters a spell to himself and changes his image to disguise himself…
He stops right before he snaps his finger and his image is reverted back to himself, "Aniki?"
Diamond nods coming in from the darkness; "Be careful. Chaos has us in his palm. I'm sorry Sapphire."
Sapphire shrugs, "It's alright Aniki. It's just a shame that we're not on the best of sides this time around."
Diamond pats his head, "Just accept my apology. I've made a mess of everything and of us siblings. Take care okay?"
Sapphire shakes his head and then looks at him strangely, "It's just a honor that I'm your brother this time around. Why do you tell me to be careful and take care?"
Diamond shrugs, "I have this weird feeling I guess."
Sapphire laughed and then got in position to disappear, "Ha. I guess you saying this to Rubeus and Emerald as well. I'll see you soon."
Diamond nodded and he was off. "I just had this weird feeling and doubts in the back of my head. You better survive this time Sapphire. I mean it this time. You ARE my brother this time around… this time around."
"Prizma-neesan? What's wrong?"
Prizma turns to her sister's calling, "yes Catzi?"
Catzi looks at her worried, "Prizma, you were looking longingly at the garden… do you need some fresh air?"
Prizma smiles at her, "You know. That might not be such a bad idea."
Catzi nods feeling her forehead, "We just got here and we have been through so much in Germany."
Prizma gets up from her bed, "Yes, just now I know that I just heard my name from somewhere… it's one of those six sense kind of things… haha, you know what I mean right?"
Catzi nods knowingly, "Go and take a nice walk."
"Man… this is so boring."
Metallia groans now on the ground, "You jerk. I just fell 30 feet."
Sapphire looks down at her with his crossing arms, "So? Just proves how bad you are holding your position you idiot."
Metallia glares up at him, "Not fair! You surprised me!"
Sapphire glares back down at her, "Duh. Element of surprise. You and your younger sisters share so many crappy qualities that make me laugh. One more thing, you also wouldn't catch me as off guard as you were you idiot."
Metallia jumps up and dusts herself off, "What the heck do you want?"
Sapphire cracks his neckbone, "Get on back. Even I don't know why Chaos wants your powers for the main event. But I will give you one good point. A good instinct on knowing it was I, someone on your side."
Metallia smiles, "Finally, it's time. Thanks and Later."
She dissolves when a voice comes from behind him, "You wouldn't be caught off guard?"
A sharp needle draws close at his throat, "it seems to me that you just did."
Sapphire sighs annoyed and quickly fazes himself to position him behind the female and neck locks her, he pauses seeing her face, "Prizma!"
Prizma bites her lower lip while struggling, "Let me go."
He continues to look at her remembering all those years in Germany… she takes her chance and punctures him with her needle at his shoulder. His disguise slips and the locket falls out and Prizma stops in her footsteps… her lips tremble seeing the jade green locket and then back at him, "Sapphire?"
A shine of gold glitter flutters in between them and they two are cut with gold invisible spears…"Prizma!"
"You fool. How could you let yourself be found out? And by this mere twit no less. You certainly are one of the pathetic Black Moon siblings."
Sapphire rushed to Prizma's side, "Are you alright?"
Prizma smiled at him and placed her hand over his, "Of course if you're with me. I've missed you so much."
Sapphire smiled back and held other free hand tightly… he placed his jacket over her, "don't worry. I'm not already hurt this time around. I'll protect you."
He stood up and shouted out, "Galaxia! Come out!"
A gold flash appeared and Galaxia stepped forward, "How dare you address me in such a fashion? Do you really think I'll let you off?"
Sapphire got in defense position and smirked back at her, "I've got to give it a try."
"Not this time."
Galaxia cursed as she glanced all around her, "Damn you Moon dwellers."
Sapphire's eyes circled around with hope shining in his eyes, "You four…"
Rei, Ami, Makoto, and Minako with their male partners alongside each of them all ready to strike against Galaxia. Minako held her gold ribbon tightly, "Galaxia, we've known that you've been inside the Dorm and Usagi's room. We want you to surrender quietly."
Galaxia laughed, "You think that you 8 light monsters can get the best of me?"
"Try fourteen." Smiled Kakyu who had her Starlights beside her along with Haruka and Michiru as well.
Galaxia sighed bored, "Not even. I am Chaos' best agent. His best student. Not even you all can take-". She paused on mid-sentence receiving a mind message from Chaos… "Then again never mind. I bid you a first undeserved farewell for the next will be your last."
She disappears with her smirk and everyone eased his or her guards…
Catzi rushed to Prizma's side, "Nee-san!"
Prizma twitched a bit from the pain, "I'm alright."
Yaten quickly followed and saw her cuts were pretty serious, "We need to get her inside the informatory so Setsuna and myself can help her."
Sapphire lifted her in his arms, "Let me help."
Yaten narrowed her eyes at him, "No. You don't belong here."
Kakyu stepped in between them, "Yaten down. It's clear he isn't here to cause any trouble with us. I know that he is okay to trust now."
Taiki placed her hand on Yaten's shoulder, "Hime's right. He shows no signs of resistance, as the other agents here aren't making their move either.
Minako's gold ribbon covered one of Sapphire's wounds on his left arm, "Yeps, I remember vaguely in the past that he was of help. I trust him."
Sapphire looked at her with confusion but nodded, "Yes. It's true. I no longer have any thoughts of fighting you all. I care only for Prizma from the bottom of my heart."
Catzi snickered at his side, "That's the most cheesiest thing I've heard from you yet Sapphire-nichan."
Sapphire flushed but nodded as Prizma smiled weakly…
Minako's hand was sought for Kunzite's and everyone started to watch nervously at the noticeably dark aura at Usagi's window, "I just hope that Mamoru-san is okay on his end…"
"What the heck is up with this new heavy energy barrier? If Galaxia hadn't given me this pendant earlier… I'll be completely purified and dissipated…"
Beryl's eyes popped open at the door when she received a message from Galaxia. 'Hey you, Chaos-sama tells us to return for the grand finale of moonlight shadow.'
'Yea, but how the heck do I get out of here? They placed a even stronger unknown force that I can quite name or detect…'
Galaxia answers her again, 'Use the crappy necklace you twit'.
'Call me twit again, I'll have you know that-'
'Shove it. Now clutch the necklace tightly and calls for Chaos-sama.'
The door opens to show Mamoru outside with Luna, Artemis, Setsuna, and Hotaru…
Beryl looks longingly at Mamoru and her image reverts back to herself only to have Mamoru glare at her now, "Where's Usagi?"
Beryl shakes her head and she mouths at Mamoru, "Those loving eyes were only for her. Never for me where they?" she then disappears after calling for Chaos in the darkness, …
"How can this be?" says Mamoru as he enters the room…
Luna looks around the room and sighs, "So the entire time…"
Artemis is at her side, "Yes, the entire time… we never had her back."
Setsuna collects the remnants of what Beryl had left behind, "this is some disguise she held up…"
Hotaru opens her eyes, "There is only silence in this room now… before, I heard some voices going back and forth…"
Mamoru nodded when he suddenly felt a chill go up his back…
"ALMOST DONE EVERYONE. WE NEED JUST A BIT MORE NEGATIVE ENERGY!" chanted Wiseman.
"I'm sorry I'm late Chaos-sama" kneeled Galaxia as she started to send her feed of dark energy to Diamond and Usagi in the center of the hall.
"Nice to see you too little sister."
Beryl shrugged her off, "Shut it Metallia-nee."
The pendant around her neck shone with bright white and gold light as it fought with the dark blue, purple and black colors.
"Looks like he's not coming back Nee-san."
Avery shrugged, "Totally saw it coming Bertie. What with what happened in Germany… those two left us alone. We only have each other and here we are with Chaos-sama, involved in one of the most brilliant plans ever made…"
Bertie nodded and then they both turned their attention back to the center…
Diamond caressed Usagi's cheek, "you're almost mine… I'm sorry you weren't here to see this Sapphire… this time I will get her…" he then noticed the overwhelming marvelous dark energy that surrounded Usagi and himself… the light from her pendant started to dwindle…he looked up waiting for the signal…
Chaos, sat comfortable in a hovering chair with Cyprine next to him on his armrest above them and motioned to Diamond, "Lights, Camera, Action…Go for it."
Diamond brushed her golden hair away from her lips and kissed her gently…
A sharp pain jolted through Mamoru as he looked up at the screen that was where assignments were usually shone… Luna and Artemis couldn't believe their eyes as others were also forced to watch the painful scene where they were to lose their princess to the darkness… Luna cried with tears of pain in Artemis' arms, "I've failed again Artemis! I've failed Usagi, Sailormoon, and Queen Serenity! I promised to bring peace to Earth!"
Artemis held her tightly, "I know. It's okay… we'll get her back."
Luna sobbed, "First we lose the prince to the darkness, but now it's worse since we've lost the most important person in the equation! My mistress, Princess Serenity!"
Artemis rubbed her back, "Don't worry. We have to look forward to the crystals for help." He muttered under his breath into her ear, "We have to get Mamoru to discover his Golden Crystal to unlock Usagi's Silver one. All is not lost…"
Kunzite and company went to Mamoru's side…
Chaos smiled his most happiest smile knowing that he now had an upper hand and just might rule the world this time around…
Beryl smirked, as she now knew that she and her sister no longer had to play such minuscule roles… Chaos wasn't going to hold her back as she thought… she wanted the Earth prince so bad. Oh so bad.
Diamond finally pulled away as he saw her moon necklace turn into the upside down black moon, the same one he had on his forehead…
Usagi's eyes fluttered open as she saw him, "Oh. Morning to you Diamond."
Diamond nodded as she tried to sit up. He helped and hugged her tightly, "You're mine… finally after so many centuries… Ever since the first time I said you in that future, I've wanted you all to myself…"
Usagi blinked droopily, "Hm? That's nice to hear I guess." She noticed everyone surrounding them…
--The end for now. Heh.
To be continued……………………………
Will Usagi ever return to Mamoru's arms?
Will Sapphire and Prizma live happily?
Will the golden crystal ever appear to release Usagi's silver one from the darkness?
Will Beryl ever get her claws on Mamoru since Usagi seems to be in Diamond's?
Will we find out how Hotaru and Mistress 9 will become a whole?
Will Chaos' plan really come to fruition or prove to be completely seedless?
Man. The gossip girl series certainly has rubbed off on me. Heh. Laters. I hope you enjoyed this chapter for I had writer's block again. Sorry about that. Gomen nasai. Lol
I was trying something new in the beginning and switched things around… did it throw you off? Cause it did a toll for the writer here. She confused the heck out of herself. Many many times…. She had to go back and forth and read it through to make sure it all worked out…Lol. And 'Nalaku from the Inuyeasha realm' was a play on characters Naraku and Inuyasha.. you know that creep that causes havoc in Takahashi Rumiko's Inuyasha manga/anime. ;
Look up in wiki for what Ayakashi sisters means. They are know as the Weird Sisters or the Four Phantom Sisters.
