So why is it that I can send a private message to most of you but there are a select few that I can't? What's the deal yo? So I am going to respond to you guys here okay?

Anon- Thank you again for your support and advice. I will most definitely look into that. Honestly, I only took the job because it was a writing position. Although I am a lover of gardening, I would hardly call myself a professional and I don't know if I should give advice to others. My articles are really well researched and then I put my own spin and experiences in. But if I see something online that I know the question to then I will answer. Also, the Scouts, were a trick by Beryl and the voice convincing herself was her own.

LoveInTheBattlefield- I love your reviews. They are always to the point, they always make me giggle. No matter whose you are reviewing for, I always see yours and it makes me smile.

TropicalRemix- You always manage to guess almost exactly what happens next in my stories. I would worry that I'm predictable but you are the only one who comes close. I guess you just get me :)

PoetOfMercury- I am currently working on three fics which is new for me cause I usually do one at a time. One is set during the Doom Tree series and ne is inspired by Zedd's "Clarity". The third is a secret only to be revealed in due time but right now it is my favorite and the most challenging.

Thank you to each and every one of you who have given me support through out this fic. I have really enjoyed sharing with all of you. And thank you to those who have subscribed to me. I really appreciate it. I really hate asking but I am desperate. I know this chapter is short but there isn't anything left. I'm not exactly happy with it but it will do! So enjoy!

The Truth About Tragedy

Ch. 21

"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone."
― Rose Kennedy

Her eyes opened to a familiar place. It was the moon kingdom. But it was not the one from the past, it was still empty and barren. A two tall figures approached. One she recognized as her mother and the other was a beautiful woman with long raven hair that flowed down her back and had four small buns on top of her head. Her mother wore white as usual which contrasted greatly to the woman beside her who wore a bright yellow and black dress. They both had a crescent moon on their foreheads and if it wasn't for difference in hair color and clothes, they could have been twins. They neared her and she gave her mother a long hug.

"Hello my little one. You did so well, I am so proud of you."

"Yes, we are both so proud of you Princess. You have grown to a beautiful young lady."

The voice of the strange woman was very familiar to her.


She chuckled softly, "Yes. As a Maulian, I have two forms Princess. One as a cat that you are familiar with and this form."

"Look behind you, Serenity, your power has resurrected our kingdom!"

"The kingdom you see before you is ours now. You can do what you wish with it, even rule here!"

She looked around her kingdom at the pillars and the cool crisp stone that adorned the walls. It was beautiful no doubt but it wasn't home, not any more.

"Thank you. Thank you both but I want to stay on Earth with my friends and family. And with Mamoru. It is where I belong."

Luna looked shocked but her mother just smiled, "I wish you all the happiness in the world little one. Go to them!"

She felt warmth spread from her lips to the rest of her body and opened her eyes to reality this time. Mamoru released her from his kiss once she was fully revived. She felt like a Princess from a fairy tale, being awaking by her Prince. She laid in his arms and basked in his loving gaze.

"You can never leave me again, you know that right?"

She smiled, "Of course. Your my soul mate, we were made to be together...I love you Mamoru."

"I love you too."

As he kissed her with all his soul, she could make out the faint calls of her friends in the distance.

It had been months since their battle with Beryl and Metallia. She and Shingo still lived with Aunt Yukio but things finally felt normal. Mamoru still picked them up and took them to school everyday. And almost every night, he slipped into her bed room and spent the night. Her grades were still C's but after getting D's and E's almost all her life it was a vast improvement.

Her heart still stung at the thought of her parents. Because of who she was, they lost their lives, but she knew deep down that they wouldn't want her to dwell. They wanted her to live happily and to the fullest so that was what she intended to do. The cops had declared it a cold case now but still bugged her family every now and again.

Minako fit right in to their little group and she was starting to wonder how they got along for so long without her. Every thing was starting to fall into place and Usagi was actually starting feel some version of normal. It wasn't the same and it never would be but she was happy.

Spring had sprung and the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. She stood alone on the bridge that Mamoru had shown her back when it was covered in snow. Her short white skirt flutter in the wind along with her floral print baby doll shirt. It was amazing how different it all looked with all the colors and life. She was so glad that they had won and that this spring was allowed to take place. A warm breeze picked up and carried blossoms with it. They swirled and danced around her, beckoning her to join them. She lifted her hands out to her sides and twirled with the wind. She didn't stop until she realized she wasn't alone. At one end of the bridge stood Mamoru watching her with an amused look on his beautiful face.

"You are an angel you know that?"

"You told me that once already."

"I did?"
"Yes, in a dream."

"Oh well that doesn't count."

"It doesn't?"

"No, not at all."

He had closed the distance between them and wrapped his arms around her. She reveled in their warmth and comfort as she laid her head on his chest and listened to the gentle beating of his heart. A finger lifted her face to his and he bent down to kiss her. She rose on tip toes to meet him half way and her soul caught fire as their lips met. Every time he kissed her it was the same. Her heart beat wildly in her chest and her knees buckled, but he was always there to catch her. He pulled her deeper into the kiss, tickling her lips with his tongue. Just as she was about to give him access, the sky opened up with a roar and something heavy fell on her head, pushing it down crushing her neck. She fell to the ground, temporarily paralyzed as pain throbbed through her spine. When she felt she could move again, she looked up to see what had attacked her clutching Mamoru by the neck. All she saw was a tiny body made up mostly of bright pink hair. What really caught her attention was the child's hair style. It was dangerously close to her own. She didn't know who or where this creature came from but she did know it still had a hold on Mamoru.

"Hey, what the hell are you doing?!"

The small creature turned and looked at her with red eyes. It looked her up and down, stopping at her hairstyle just as she had. Letting go of Mamoru who looked like he was in shock, she walked closer to her. The girl was so small and, to be honest, very cute. She even had a small ball that looked a lot like Luna. Surely this girl was an ally not a foe.

"Are you Tsukino Usagi?"


In a puff of smoke her cute little ball disappeared and in it's place was a pistol pointed at her face. She could see down the barrel of the gun and a chill ran down her spine.

"Then give me the silver crystal!"

Oh, did I forget to mention that this is two parter? Oops!
