Thank you Lilac Wolf for reviewing and everyone for reading. Now, on to the tale!
~Chapter 7: Twin Lives. Nova's Lovely Singing~
The house was quiet, Ikuto was already asleep, but I wasn't. I sat by my window and stared up at the full moon that shined brightly up above. Whenever I looked up at it, I was filled with this strange sensation. It was a mixture of sadness and joy, but I didn't know why I felt the strange feeling.
I glanced at my pillow before walking over and grabbing the small pocket watch I always kept underneath it. The watch has never moved for as long as I can remember, and not even Ikuto can get it fixed.
I sighed and placed it back under my pillow before I pulled the blanket over me and fell asleep.
"AHHH! I'M LATE . . . AGAIN!" I screamed as I ran down the stairs.
"Nova," Ikuto called behind me.
"Can't talk! I'm going to be late!"
"I . . . Huh?" I asked dumbly and turned to glance at Ikuto.
There was a smirk on his face, his gray eyes full of amusement. "Do you really want to go to school that badly?"
"Uh . . ." a blush of embarrassment passed over my cheeks. I went back up the stairs without another word and closed my room door behind me to change out of my uniform.
When I was done, I went back downstairs and into the living room. Ikuto was speaking to someone on the phone as I sat next to him quietly.
"Right, tomorrow at two," Ikuto said with a nod. "I'll be there."
"New job?" I asked when he hung up the phone.
Ikuto nodded. "With the most popular pop idol at the moment."
"Pop idol? Who is it?"
"Misao . . . Sato . . .?"
"You don't know who she is?" Ikuto asked me in shock.
I shook my head slowly.
"Have you ever heard the song Whimsical Star?"
I nodded. "Yeah. It's a good song."
"She sang that."
"Oh," I muttered.
"You're telling me you liked a song without knowing the artist?" Ikuto asked as if I were dumb.
I glared at him. "Hey, I have more important things to worry about than who sung a song."
"You're only sixteen. I doubt you have a lot of important things to worry about," Ikuto muttered.
If only he knew.
I stood up from my seat. "I'm leaving," I said with a single wave.
"Don't do anything illegal."
"Never do," I said as I opened the front door and put on my knee-high black Converses.
Ikuto just chuckled and I was off.
I called Kiseki and Nana and told them to meet me at the arcade (that I was still banned from by Ikuto, by the way). When I got to the arcade, they still weren't there, so I decided to play some Sailor V: REBORN!
I didn't get out until I had beaten my last high score. When I left the booth, Kiseki and Nana had just entered the arcade and both waved at me.
"So this is the arcade Kiseki-chan told me about," Nana said as the two approached me.
"And the one you're banned from," the smart girl added.
I chuckled nervously. "Well . . ."
"She never listens," Ren said, popping out of nowhere and placing his arm on my head.
"Ren-kun," Kiseki said happily and Nana grew very quiet and red.
"Why do you always pop out of nowhere?" I grumbled.
"I work here, remember? So technically, why do you always appear at the arcade?" Ren asked.
"Because Nova-chan secretly enjoys seeing Ren-kun," Kiseki giggled.
"Y-yeah right!" I exclaimed, my own face beginning to burn in embarrassment and nothing more!
Ren laughed and took his arm off my head. "Well, I have to get back to boring work. Try not to start any fights, Usagi."
"Nova," I said curtly.
"See, he even has a nickname for you," Kiseki continued to tease.
"You're so cruel," I chuckled and glanced at Nana who was staring down at her black Mary-Janes. "You have a crush on him?" I whispered in her ear.
"E-eh? N-no! Of course not!" Nana stuttered, her head snapping upwards and revealing her red face that was brighter than Rudolf's nose.
"Oh? Nana-chan likes Ren-kun?" Kiseki asked innocently. "I never knew those kind of men were your type."
I nodded. "Yeah. Why him?"
"C-can we just talk about something e-else?" my friend stuttered to ask impatiently.
I nodded again and giggled. "Fine. Come on, let's go to the café."
"Right," both my friends said and followed me.
As the three of us walked down the street, we passed by a music store that was playing Misao Sato's song, Whimsical Star through the outside speakers.
The stars shining so bright in the sky,
shall always remain and never die.
I look up at them and release a tear.
The stars protect everyone here.
Whenever I stare up at the bright moon,
I see a princess who will appear soon.
I want to stand beside that girl,
and help her to protect this precious world.
I stopped in front of the music store and listened to the song, a nostalgic feeling coming over me like it always did when I listened to this.
The star in my heart
keeps me from falling apart.
My purpose to survive.
The thing that keeps me alive.
With the moon as my guide,
and my star inside,
I will become brave.
I will keep everyone safe.
The melody began to come to an end, but my nostalgia remained. It made me a bit angry, because I felt like I should be remembering something, but nothing came into my mind. Everything was blank, and it really got me mad. What was I suppose to remember? What was making this feeling show?
"Nova-chan?" Kiseki and Nana asked in unison.
"Huh? Oh, sorry about that," I said and started walking again. "That song just made me feel nostalgic is all."
"You too?" both my friends asked together. Sheesh. They were starting to seem like twins.
"Too?" I asked.
"I also feel nostalgic whenever I listen to Whimsical Star," Nana explained.
"Me too. I feel like I should remember something when I listen to it, but nothing comes to mind," Kiseki said.
"That's exactly how I feel," I muttered. "I wonder why that song makes us feel that way."
Nana shrugged. "Who knows. A lot of strange things occur in our lives that we just don't have the answers too."
I suddenly got a plan in my mind. I glanced at Nana and Kiseki and smiled.
"What are you planning, Nova-chan?" Kiseki asked.
"Well, Ikuto is going to be modeling with Misao Sato tomorrow," I said slyly.
Nana and Kiseki sent each other a worried glance.
"How about we go and meet her?" I asked.
"Are you sure about that, Nova-chan?" Kiseki asked.
"Why not?" I replied. "Maybe if we meet her, we can find out one answer to our list of many questions."
"I guess," Kiseki mumbled.
"Good. Then it's settled. I'll tell Ikuto to expect us."
"EH?! What do you mean we can't go?" I asked Ikuto that night after I told him my friends and I would go attend his photo shoot.
"No is no, Nova," Ikuto replied. "I can't just have you bringing a bunch of your friends to my photo shoots."
"But you never cared before!"
"Because this time is different. This time there will be a very famous pop idol there."
"But please?" I begged and grabbed onto Ikuto's arm as he was about to walk away from me. I dragged him down by clinging tightly to his arm. "Pretty please? Please, please, please?"
"Nova, enough!" Ikuto said sternly and tried prying me off his arm, but I wouldn't budge. "Maybe next time."
"But next time might not be with Misao Sato!"
"Why are you suddenly so interested in meeting her anyways? You barely knew who she was this morning."
I pouted, my bottom lip sticking out. "Still," I mumbled.
Ikuto sighed. "I can't let you in this time, Nova. I'm sorry, but I can't."
"Hmm," I whined and began shaking Ikuto's arm. "Try harder! Get me in!"
"Nova!" Ikuto shouted and tried getting me off him again. "Stop it!"
Ikuto finally managed to pry me off of him, and I sighed irritably.
"Fine," I said.
"Good," Ikuto retorted and went up to his room.
When he closed the door behind him, I chuckled darkly to myself. Like I would seriously give up so easily. Nova never gives up.
"Um, Nova-chan," Kiseki whispered.
"Yeah?" I whispered back.
"Why are we sneaking into the photo shoot?"
"Uh . . . Well . . . You see . . ."
"I thought Ikuto-san was here," Nana whispered. "So why do we need to sneak in?"
"Ikuto said I couldn't come," I admitted.
"So we're basically breaking his rules to come here," Nana stated.
"Pretty much," I said. "Now let's keep moving."
Since we were already in the photo shoot area and there was no turning back, Kiseki and Nana kept following me. We hid behind trees and bushes, getting closer and closer to the cameras and models.
"What happens if we get caught, Nova-chan?" Kiseki asked, her voice quivering in fear.
"We won't, trust me," I said as we moved to behind another tree.
"Who's there?!" a voice suddenly shouted.
Nana, Kiseki, and I all gasped and were about to run off, but we tripped over one another and came tumbling down.
"So much for not getting caught," Nana whispered.
I didn't say anything.
Someone approached the three of us. "Who are you girls and why are you sneaking around the photo shoot?" a female voice demanded.
"S-sorry," Kiseki stuttered and looked up. She then gasped. "You're."
"Eh?" Nana and I asked in unison and looked up as well. We gasped. "Misao Sato!"
Misao Sato in the flesh was the person who had seen us. Her skin was milk chocolate brown, and her eyes silver. Her straight hair was teal before fading to red at the bottom and reached to just above her shoulders. She was dressed in a simple white tee, jean shorts, and black ballet flats.
Misao Sato's eyes widened when she stared at my friends and I. "The girls from my dream," she whispered in shock.
"Dream?" I asked.
"Come with me," Misao Sato said urgently.
We followed her to her dressing room, the whole time I was trying to keep myself from being seen by Ikuto. One, I had left school early to come here; two, I wasn't suppose to be here; and three, he would be even angrier at me because I also made Kiseki and Nana leave school early. But, in my defense, they really wanted to come and didn't mind skipping the rest of the school day.
We entered a large trailer, one wall lined with the most beautiful clothes I had ever seen. My friends and I sighed in amazement while Misao Sato walked over to a seat in front of a large mirror and sat down. She turned towards us and crossed her legs and arms.
"What are your names?" she asked.
"Nova?" Misao Sato asked and blinked in confusion. "The same Nova that Ikuto-sama is always talking about."
He talks about me? How embarrassing. "W-what exactly does he say?" I asked.
She smiled and shrugged. "What doesn't he say? He pretty much goes on and on about you. At first he was saying how annoying you were, but then he started talking about how nice you can be. But then he went back to badmouthing you, and then he went back to complimenting. You're pretty much the only thing on his mind."
There were no words to describe how red I was. I didn't know where to put my face, so I just stared down at the floor and said nothing. I could feel Kiseki and Nana's sly looks, seeing as both of them now knew Ikuto and I weren't really related.
"Anyways, you guys already know who I am," Misao Sato said. "But please don't call me Misao-sama, Misao-san, or anything like that. Just Misao is fine."
We all nodded.
"Um, Misao, you said something about a dream earlier?" Nana asked as I finally looked up, my face no longer red.
Misao nodded. "I know it sounds pretty crazy, but I've seen you three before in a dream. Well, not just one dream, many. I didn't think you girls actually existed."
"What kind of dreams are these?" Kiseki asked.
Misao sat up straight and glanced into the mirror at her own reflection. "Well, at first it was just me seeing you three walking down the street. Then it changed to me actually meeting you three." Misao turned back to us and smiled. "And then becoming close friends."
"Friends?" I asked, clearly shocked.
Misao nodded and stood up. She walked over to me and grabbed both my hands in hers. "So what do you say? Friends?"
"Of course!" Kiseki and Nana exclaimed before I could say yes myself. So I just smiled and nodded.
"Yay! Thank you!" Misao hugged each of us and laughed. "You guys are actually my only friends."
"Only friends? But you're famous," I said. "I thought you would have many friends."
Misao shrugged. "I thought so too when I was chosen to be an idol, but it didn't turn out that way. Also, I don't really remember my life past two years ago, so making friends is a bit difficult when I don't really understand myself yet."
"W-w-w-wait!" I exclaimed. "Did you just say you can't remember anything past two years ago?" I asked.
Misao nodded. "Yeah. Why?"
"Uh . . . Never mind," I said and sent Nana and Kiseki a quick glance.
Someone knocked on the trailer door before letting themselves in. When I saw who it was, I yelped and jumped back.
"Nova?!" Ikuto exclaimed. "What are you doing here?"
"Hey, Ikuto-sama," Misao greeted as Ikuto walked in and grabbed my wrist.
"Shouldn't you be in school right now?" he asked me. I remained silent. Ikuto glanced at Misao and bowed. "I'm sorry if she bothered you."
"No, Ikuto-sama," Misao said. "She wasn't bothering me. I told her to come here, along with her friends."
"Huh?" Ikuto asked and glanced at Kiseki and Nana who nodded. He then looked down at me. "Still, you should be in school, Nova."
I looked away as he sighed and released my wrist.
"So rebellious," Ikuto whispered and glanced at Misao again. "We're up next. They just wanted me to let you know."
Misao nodded. "Thank you, Ikuto-sama."
He nodded and turned to leave, but not before looking at me again. "We'll talk about this later."
I nodded glumly. "Right."
"Wow. He must really like you," Misao whispered once Ikuto was gone.
"I-it isn't like that!" I stuttered, my cheeks burning again as I waved my arms in the air. "He's just overprotective is all," I added in a low tone and looked away as I crossed my arms over my chest.
Misao chuckled as she walked over to the many clothes and began looking through them for something to wear. "You guys are going to stay while I take the photos, right?"
"Great. Then afterwards we should go do something."
"Sounds fun," I said.
(? P. O. V)
"Things are moving quicker than we thought."
"Yeah. Both sides are almost done growing. Does this mean . . ."
"The red star will soon appear as well."
(Nova P. O. V)
Ikuto kept glaring at me as he took pictures, and I could just see my punishment in a thought bubble above his head. I have a feeling I won't be able to leave the house for a few months. No, make it years.
Misao had given Kiseki, Nana, and I all sweaters to wear over our uniform so no one would ask questions, and we were watching on the sidelines, VIP passes around our necks.
"Misao doesn't remember anything about herself prior to two years," Nana murmured.
Kiseki and I nodded.
"Just like us," Kiseki said.
"You think it could mean something?" I asked.
"I don't know, but I feel like we ended up with more questions than answers we were looking for," Kiseki stated.
"Yeah," I mumbled.
As time went on and more and more photos were taken, my mind began to wander off.
I'm sorry I'm not gentle,
I can say it in my dreams.
My thoughts are about to short circuit.
I want to see you now!
I want to cry with the moonlight.
I can't call you it's already midnight.
But I have a simple heart, so what can I do?
My heart is a kaleidoscope.
"What song is that, Nova-chan?" Kiseki asked, breaking me out of my thoughts.
"What? Song?" I asked and glanced at Nana and Kiseki. "Was I singing it aloud?"
They both nodded.
I chuckled. "Oh sorry about that. I don't really know what song it is. It just pops into my head sometimes and I sing it."
"Your singing is pretty," Kiseki complimented. "How come you don't sing more often?"
I shrugged. "I used to all the time, but then I just stopped." I shrugged again and looked into the sky.
That song. It feels me with nostalgia, just like Whimsical Star. I wonder if they're connected somehow.
"Sing some more," Nana said. "I want to hear the rest of the song."
"Huh? Seriously?" I asked.
They both nodded.
"Okay," I said and smiled.
With the light of the moon to guide us,
we'll be brought together by fate many times over.
Counting the twinklings of the constellations
is how I foretell love's whereabouts.
Born on the same earth Miracle Romance.
I believe in this Miracle Romance.
I hadn't noticed that some people around were paying attention to my singing until I had stopped and they started clapping. I looked around, my face flushing. Oops. I didn't mean to call in a crowd or anything.
"That was beautiful," one woman complimented.
"She's amazing," a man said.
"I wonder if she'll be the next idol," a second man said.
"Idol? Me?" I asked and glanced at Nana and Kiseki.
They both smiled and nodded.
"You have the talent," Kiseki said.
"Yeah. You're just as good as Misao."
I remained silent, not really sure what to say. I've never been complimented so much by so many people. It was a bit embarrassing.
As the crowd dispersed, Misao and Ikuto walked over.
"What was with the big crowd?" Misao asked.
"Nova-chan was singing, and it was really amazing!" Kiseki said and clapped her hands.
"Nova was singing?" Ikuto asked in shock and stared down at me. I knew he was thinking about the last time I had sung, which was two years ago.
"I got bored is all," I said, bringing back my macho exterior. I crossed my arms over my chest and looked away from everyone.
"I want to hear Nova sing," Misao said.
"We should go to karaoke!" Kiseki chimed happily. "That way we can all hear her sing again."
"K-karaoke? N-no. That's okay," I said. "That isn't a good idea."
"I say it's a great idea," Ikuto said with a devious smirk.
I glared at him.
"Think of this as your punishment for skipping school," he whispered.
"Fine. Let's go to karaoke, I guess," I mumbled.
"Rock, paper, scissors, shoot!" Nana, Kiseki, Misao, and I all said in unison and did one of the three choices to see who would go first. Luckily, I had won and Nana would have to sing first.
Nana's cheeks turned red and she was super nervous to sing, so Kiseki decided to sing with her. And . . . It wasn't the best. Then again, it wasn't the worse either. They didn't make my ears bleed, but they did make them hurt a bit.
Still, I clapped because they were my friends and they still did good at singing in unison and with feeling.
"I say Nova should go next," Ikuto said.
"Why are you here anyways?" I whispered harshly to him and he ignored me, taking a sip of his orange soda.
"Since Kiseki and Nana did a duet, how about we do one too, Nova?" Misao asked.
"Yes!" I said happily, preferring to go up with someone then by myself.
We chose the song Moon Revenge, and grabbed our mics as the lyrics began to appear on the screen.
Grasping tightly to a love you've finally found your way to,
you rest gently in a brief sleep.
Laying a goodbye kiss on your closed eyelid,
I left you behind in the garden of time.
My solo came up, so I began to sing.
Love can't continue
as a mere dream.
But if you lust after it, it becomes a beautiful but hollow shell.
But still . . .
Misao and I went back to singing together.
If that's what you want, then chase after me.
That kiss is a red tattoo,
a tattoo that engraves a prophecy of destiny.
I'll know with just one look.
There's a tattoo that hurts in the shape of your lips;
you can't hide it.
It's Moon Revenge, woo . . .
Misao's part came up now.
Auras drawn by each other, even when enveloped by darkness
cannot be snuffed out, and will not falter.
I can still see our parting so clearly, and it burns.
Yet, I hope the next one fate draws me to could be you again.
The deeper the love,
the greedier it is.
I even want to bind up every sigh you make. It's irrational,
but still . . .
Climbing to the top of the whirlpool of light,
crimson memories are a poisonous tattoo.
A tattoo that shows the chaos of the future.
Now the final two verses were sung by both of us again.
When we are together,
the tattoo hurts in the shape of your lips until we shatter.
It'd be nice if you'd keep holding me.
It's Moon Revenge, woo . . .
If that's what you want, then chase after me.
That kiss is a red tattoo,
a tattoo that engraves a prophecy of destiny.
I'll know with just one look
there's a tattoo that hurts in the shape of your lips;
you can't hide it.
It's Moon Revenge, woo . . .
When the song came to an end, I winked and looked out at everyone. "How was that?"
They all clapped and Misao and I bowed together.
I sat next to Ikuto as Kiseki decided to go up by herself. As she sang, Ikuto rested his hand on my head.
"It's nice to hear you singing again," he muttered.
I looked up at him curiously from the corner of my eyes. "You miss it?" I asked.
He nodded and removed his hand from my head as he leaned back on the comfy bench we were sitting on. "I do. I always enjoyed hearing you sing."
I smiled to myself. "Then maybe I'll start singing again."
"Nova! Do a song by yourself this time!" Misao exclaimed when Kiseki was done.
"Okay!" I said happily.
(? P. O. V - The Next Day)
"What are you humming?"
"Whimsical Star. It's really catchy. It got stuck in my head."
Beep, beep, beep!
"A Cardian has just appeared."
"At a near by amphitheater."
"Wait! Isn't there a rehearsal being held there at the moment?!"
(Nova P. O. V)
As Nana and I walked home from school, our cellphones both vibrated. We glanced at them and noticed we had the same text message from Kiseki.
She put the address, and also a little note that made me even more worried.
Misao's is having a rehearsal. We have to hurry before she or anyone else gets hurt.
Nana and I hid behind a few trees near by and pulled out our brooches.
"Royal Crystal, Make-up!"
"Sagittarius Power, Make-Up!"
After transforming, we raced to the amphitheater. Kiseki was already there, fighting the Cardian and trying to get it away from the workers.
The Cardian had pink skin with long, blood red hair that was a bit messy, kind of like a rock star's hairstyle. It had a black star over it's right purple eye, and large black headphones. It wore a black tee that reached just above its bellybutton and looked torn at the tip. It also had on leather skinny jeans, black heels, and black fingerless gloves.
It was your stereotypical rock star.
"Rock! Roll! Encore!" the Cardian exclaimed as a large, red electric guitar appeared in its hands. It slammed its hand down on the guitar and a screeching noise filled the air.
Sailor Virgo, Sailor Sagittarius, and I all winced and covered our ears.
"How dare you use music for evil!" I exclaimed when the horrid melody stopped. I stood up and placed my hands on my hips. "Music is the sound of the soul, and I won't forgive you for tainting that! For family, love, and justice! The rebellious sailor suited Senshi, Sailor Nirvana!"
"Likewise, the graceful dancer Senshi, Sailor Virgo!"
"Likewise, the intellectual elegant Senshi, Sailor Sagittarius!"
"And in the name of the stars and moon, we will correct your sins!" we finished in unison and did a pose.
"Rock! Roll!" the Cardian shouted and slammed its hand on the guitar again. This time, a strange beam shot out of the guitar that the three of us quickly dodged.
"You seriously need to be shown how to play some real music!" I exclaimed as I summoned my scythe and shot forward.
"Encore!" The Cardian played the guitar again, and unfortunately I was unable to avoid the attack. I put my scythe in front of me to block most of the attack, but I was still sent skidding across the cement.
"Ouch," I whispered.
"Miracle Rain!" Sailor Virgo attacked.
"Lovely Tornado!" Sailor Sagittarius attacked.
They both missed the Cardian, and were delivered the same fate as me.
"This sucks," I whispered. "The thing is pretty fast, and that annoying guitar is pretty strong."
My fellow Senshi nodded.
"What do we do then?" Sailor Virgo asked.
"Merge our attacks," I answered.
Sailor Virgo and Sagittarius nodded and we all struggled back to our feet.
"Atonement Of The Stars!"
Our attacks merged together, but the stupid Cardian jumped out of the way.
"Come on!" I shouted angrily.
"We'll just have to try again," Sailor Sagittarius said.
"Right," I muttered. "Let's g—" I stopped mid sentence as the Cardian suddenly stuck its tongue out and grabbed something with it. Gross.
When I saw what was grabbed, my friends and I all gasped.
Misao struggled to get released from the disgusting tongue, but as she did, her energy began to get drained. Her struggle began to slowly stop.
"No! Let her go!" I shouted and ran forward. "Atonement of the Stars!"
The Cardian merely batted me away with its guitar, and as I fell through the air, someone quickly caught me. I glanced up.
He put me down and I saw as two other guys shot forward. There was Scorpio, and now someone else.
"There's another Knight?" I asked and looked up at Hunter.
He nodded. "Aries."
"Aries," I whispered. His outfit was the exact same one Scorpio had, but instead of his hood having golden fur around the edge, it had baby blue fur.
Scorpio swung his sword down, cutting the Caridan's tongue.
"Sailor Virgo, Sailor Sagittarius, catch Misao!" I said quickly.
"Right!" they said and got her just in time.
Aries ran forward, one sai in both his hands. He tried stabbing at the Cardian, but it moved out of his way and hit him with its guitar like it had done to me.
"Sailor Nirvana! You have to see this!" Sailor Sagittarius exclaimed.
"What is it?" I asked as I ran over to the three girls. I gasped as my eyes landed on Misao's forehead. "Gemini?"
The sign of Gemini was glowing on her forehead, and there was also something glowing in her pocket. I pulled it out and saw it was the same pendant Sailor Virgo and Sailor Sagittarius had, but it had the sign of Gemini on it.
"She's one of us," Sailor Virgo whispered.
I nodded just as Misao began to open her eyes. She stared at my fellow Senshi and I in shock.
"Sailor Nirvana? Sailor Virgo? Sailor Sagittarius?"
"Listen to me, Misao," I said and handed her the amulet. "I know this is super sudden, but you're one of us, and we need you to transform."
"One of you guys?" she asked.
I nodded. "You're Sailor Gemini, and I need you to transform. Please."
She nodded, her face stern. "Right."
Sailor Sagittarius helped Misao. Misao lifted her amulet in the air and shouted out: "Gemini Power, Make-Up!"
Sailor Gemini had the silver crown on her forehead with a red gem in the center. Her collar, skirt, choker, and high boots were all red, along with the gem on her front bow. The lining of her white, fingerless gloves were teal, so were both her front and back bow, her earrings, and the gem on the front of her choker. Sailor Gemini stared down at herself in shock before looking up with a determined smile.
"Okay," she said with a nod.
We all smiled and looked up at the Cardian as the boys fought with it. The Cardian attacked with another screeching beam from the guitar, hitting Hunter directly.
"Hunter!" I shouted. I glared at the Cardian before turning to my friends. "Come on."
The three of them nodded and shot forward.
"Beautiful Spark!" Sailor Gemini attacked, her ability being electricity.
"Atonement of the Stars!" I shouted and attacked as well.
We watched as our attacked merged once more, and I hoped it would work this time. Aries and Scorpio jumped out of the way just in time and the Cardian was taken by surprise as our attack hit.
"We did it!" Sailor Gemini exclaimed as the Cardian vanished.
I glanced over to where Scorpio and Aries were helping Hunter sit up. I ran over to him and crouched down by his side, next to Scorpio.
"Are you going to be okay?" I asked.
Hunter smirked and nodded. "That attack was nothing. I'm perfectly fine."
I nodded. "Thank you for always helping us."
Hunter, Scorpio, and Aries all rose to their feet, so did I.
"I'm starting to think, that we just might not be enemies," Hunter admitted.
I nodded. "Yeah."
"But there is still a bit of uncertainty," Aries muttered.
Scorpio and Hunter nodded.
"But we'll hope," Hunter added before the three Knights left.
"I really hope we can be friends," Sailor Sagittarius said as the three Senshi walked over to me.
I nodded. "Me too."
I glanced over at Sailor Gemini as she continued to stare down at her outfit curiously. I chuckled and untransformed, along with the others. I grabbed Kiseki before she could hit the ground, and helped her up until I would be able to put her back in her wheelchair.
Sailor Gemini stared at Nana, Kiseki, and I all in utter shock.
"Nova? Kiseki? Nana?" she whispered.
"You guys are the Sailor Senshi?"
We nodded again.
"And so are you," I said. "Welcome to the group."
"Friend," Kiseki and Nana added.
Sailor Gemini untransformed. Misao stared at us, still shocked. Finally, she smiled and lunged for us, pulling us all into a hug.
"I knew we'd be close friends," she giggled.
Everything is being destroyed. The castle, the beautiful castle is being shattered. I can hear people screaming in fear, and others shouting orders to others. I'm running through the halls, a small hand gripped tightly in mine. I have to keep running, I can't stop.
As I run, I can hear a voice in my head. A voice that chills me to the bone.
I will have you, my precious Nova. You will be mine, and mine alone! I will stop at nothing to have you!
No, stop it. Make it go away!
The ground underneath my feet began to shake, and I grabbed the person who's hand I was holding as we both fell to our knees. I looked over at the window, the sky pitch black and the only thing visible was a large red star.
"No!" I shouted, my body sitting up immediately as I awoke from my dream. I placed a hand on my clammy forehead, my body shaking in fear. I closed my eyes and let out a shaky breathe as my heart raced in my chest.
You must find the other warriors before the night grows black and a red star falls.
"That's what I saw," I whispered.
I looked out my window at the dark night, the clouds blocking out the light of the stars and moon. It made me think of my nightmare, and that only made me more scared. I climbed out of bed, clutching a pillow to my chest as I wandered over to Ikuto's room.
I opened the door and tiptoed over to his bed. I shook Ikuto's shoulder, and watched as his gray eyes opened slowly and he stared up at me groggily.
"Nova?" Ikuto asked and sat up. He rubbed his eyes before running a hand through his hair. "What's wrong?"
"Can I sleep here tonight?" I whispered.
"I had a nightmare, and . . ." I trailed off.
Ikuto smiled and moved over. "Fine." he patted the now empty space next to him. I smiled and laid down next to Ikuto. I rested my head on the pillow I had brought with me, and moved close to Ikuto. Ikuto wrapped one arm around my shoulders while his other arm wrested under his pillow.
The night grows black and a red star falls that line kept repeating in my mind as I tried to go back to sleep. My dream had already portrayed the horror of that warning, and I was guaranteed not to let it happen in real life.
But what about that voice I had heard? That male voice?
I shook my head and moved even closer to Ikuto, as if that would really make everything bad go away. That voice scared me, I will admit that. It scared me so much, and I hope I never have to hear it again.
Never ever again!
Whimsical Star is a song I made up, so that's by me. The song Nova was singing at first was Moonlight Denetsu, and the song she sang with Misao was Moon Revenge. Alright, I hope you all enjoyed this chapter. Please review and look forward to the next one.
