Usagi closed her eyes. Prayed with her heart. Cried with her soul.

Her friends. Gone. It couldn't end this way. They were supposed to be forever.


Light, bright as promise, filled her being. Usagi commanded their return.

Return they did.

Grateful tears spilled down her cheeks. Rei. Ami. Mako. Minako. She'd watched them fall, one by one. Screamed their names until hoarse. They had died, as they always died, for her. Now, she had another chance.

"Everyone. Thank goodness. That was a bad appetizer, I know. Dinner will be much better," she said, serving with a smile.
