Luna paced back and forth frantically as the Sailor Scouts hovered around Ami. They were in her house, having an emergency meeting.
"Anything yet, Ami?" Artemis inquired. Ami was working on her home computer, quickly checking readings against her tiny yet magical' Sailor Mercury Data Computer. "I'll need a few more minutes."
Lita yawned. "I still don't see why you're so worried, Luna. I'm sure it's nothing."
Artemis nodded. "That tremor we felt was probably just an earthquake."
Luna sighed. "But Japan got hit with one half a year ago. Two big quakes in such a short period rarely happens, even in Los Angeles."
Rei shrugged. "Maybe she's right. It could be some Negaverse plot, or even something new."
Mina nodded. "I guess so. But Artemis told me a while back Luna's afraid of earthquakes." she smiled evilly. "Sure it's not just nerves, Luna?"
Luna blushed. "I'm a cat. And I'm NOT afraid of earthquakes."
Serena was still sobbing from the tremor they felt three hours ago. "How can you guys be so FUCKING calm!"
They all looked at her. Serena literally never swore before, at least not so vocally. Rei smiled. "Well, Serena's a REAL teenager after all!"
Serena stopped shuddering and stuck out her tongue at Rei, who returned the action as they went off into one of their tongue-contests.
Luna sighed loudly. "Ami?"
She turned around. "I can't tell. The shockwaves were too brief to get an accurate epicenter."
Lita blinked. "So, you don't know where it's from?"
Mina slumped back in a nearby chair. "Well, now what?"
Artemis jumped up on Mina's shoulder. "Ami? Do you have an approximate epicenter?" he asked.
Ami typed in a few commands on both her computers. "It started out to sea. We couldn't get there unless we had a boat." "And I wouldn't want to get stuck on a boat if another quake hits." Lita pointed out. "I hear they can kick up some awesome surf."
Ami smiled. "Lita, they can kick-up' tidal waves taller than your thunderclouds."
Lita blinked, trying to imagine a huge wall of water coming towards them on a leaky old raft. "Uh, Ami's right. We better not go."
Luna nodded. "Okay, but I want you all to be ready on a second's notice. You might as all go home, unless you have something to add."
Mina smiled. "Don't worry, Luna. You can count on us." she picked up Artemis from her shoulder. "Come on, Artemis. I'll buy you breakfast on the way home."
Serena and Rei eventually stopped sticking out their tongues and stormed off.
Lita frowned. "See, Luna? That's what happens when you wake up Serena and Rei at four in the morning." she left.
Luna sighed as she left with a goodbye to Ami. "I hope it's nothing more than an earthquake. But I still feel queezy about the whole thing."
Later that day, Rei was walking down the street, shopping bag in hand. Some people were crowded around a television store's window, watching the news. Curiosity got the best of her and she joined the group.
The news was on, explaining details on the earthquake. In Japanese, the newscast went on:
"At three-fifty seven, Osaka-time, a small earthquake, originating a hundred miles or so off the coast of Tokyo hit Japan. The amplitude was only two point five on the Richter scale, and no casualties are reported. Tokyo police were please to report no looting or other such crimes despite many security systems being knocked out for a few minutes this morning. No significant damage was reported, and life has returned to normal in the cities. In rural areas..."
Rei smiled. Luna was probably over-reacting to the tremor, but at least she meant well. "Uhhh," she sighed. "Just an earthquake."
A little known fact about the Negaverse is that they use a type of spy-satellite to locate high--life-energy areas among planets that are new to them. These satellites don't orbit. They have a base platform that is placed on the actual planet's surface to generate a type of anti- gravitational beam that holds the actual spy sensor platform in the air.
With Queen Beryl defeated, and her base in the Arctic destroyed, the satellite was shut- down due to lack of recent repairs. It vaporized harmlessly as part of a self-destruct program. Their satellite was positioned off the coast of Japan, however, and the self-destruct command never reached the base unit because of the seawater it was under.
One of it's power-generators just blew, causing the earthquake.
There were ten more generators in the base unit...all on the first stage of melt-down.
Serena held Luna up to the T.V.. "See, silly Luna?" she said happily. "The news just said it was a plain old earthquake. Not even a big one!"
Luna frowned as Serena pressed her face up on the screen, squishing her nose. "Okay, I admit it. Sorry for waking you up, lazy-bones."
Serena tossed Luna in the air like a little kid. "Oh, Luna. Learn to relax. You're such a stodgemeister. You think every little tremor is some Nega-Monster."
Luna leapt out of her hands. "I still think it's better to be cautious."
Serena's mom called out from the kitchen. "Serena, honey! Your dad and I are going to the mall for a while. Will you look after Sammy for a while?"
"But mooooomm!" she whined. "I wanted to go over to Rei' temple and get some comics!"
"I'll pick some up for you if you look after your brother. Is that okay?" her mom replied, halfway out the door.
"Fine..." Serena pouted. The door slammed, and a few seconds later, the family car started up and revved out of the driveway.
Serena grabbed Luna. "Where are we going!?!" the cat demanded.
"Upstairs." Serena replied. "At least then I can make sure Sammy isn't sneaking around my room again."
Luna sighed. "You're such a ditz."
Artemis sat up on the counter of Mina's tiny kitchen. "So? What's for lunch?"
Mina shook her head. "You gotta watch your weight, Artemis. You're having tuna-mix again." she said, preparing a bowl of cat-food for him.
Her furry, white companion growled under his breath. "I don't get it. Would you treat a human boyfriend better? Because I'm thinking of getting my brain transplanted into a body."
"At least then, I'll get fed." he sighed, curling up into a ball.
"Oh Artemis. Tell you what. If you're good, and eat your food, I'll give you a little..." she smiled sexily "exercise...later on tonight."
Artemis raised his eyebrows. "Well, in that case...meow-meow-meow-meow, I want chicken, I want liver, I want fish, please deliver..." he sung along to the tune of a certain cat food commercial. Mina shook her head with a smile on her face. "Right..."
Lita pounded her fist on the Sailor V' video screen, causing the surrounding patrons to stare. "Fucking ass-munch...Mega-bite-me...stupid game!" she stood up from the game, giving it one last kick.
Andrew came over, hearing the commotion. "Lita? Are you alright? What happened?"
Lita growled, pointing to the Sailor V game. "I DIED ON THE FUCKING EASIEST PART!" she yelled, shaking him violently.
Once he regained his balance, Andrew smiled. "It that all? I thought someone was robbing you of your quarters or something. You should really learn to relax."
Lita took a few deep breaths. "Sorry. Sometimes I get carried away." she looked into his eyes briefly. "I hope I didn't drive away any of your customers, Andrew."
He shrugged. "Aw, don't worry about it. Wanna go for a milkshake? My shift is over in five minutes anyway."
Lita smiled happily. "Sure!"
She watched him walk over to the counter and grab his coat. "Man, he's a LOT better than my ex-boyfriend! Freddy's got nothing on his ass!" she thought, blushing slightly. "Too bad he has a girlfriend."
Andrew came back over to her. "Shall we?" he lead her out the door.
Rei waved as Darien came into view. Darien smiled and jogged over to her. "Hi Rei. Did you guys feel the earthquake last night?"
Rei nodded. "Yeah. Luna got scared and even called a meeting. She thought it was some evil force or something."
Darien looked puzzled. "That's not like Luna to get worked up over nothing." he smiled. "She's the only cat I know who's cooler under fire than an ice cube."
Rei nodded. "Artemis said she's afraid of quakes. That might be why."
Darien looked over at the bag she was carrying. "Watcha got there?" he said, adjusting his jogging shirt.
Rei blushed. "Oh, nothing. I've just been shopping."
Darien shook his head. "How do you females hoard so many clothes? I just have my three jogging suits, five or so shirts, and three pants. Then I just throw on my green jacket."
Rei smiled. "What? No underwear?"
Darien frowned slightly. "Okay, plus shorts and socks."
Rei nodded toward her bag. "Well, Mina borrowed some of my clothes last week, but I think her washing machine shredded them. I just got some replacements."
Darien sighed. "Well, I gotta go. I'm late for work..." he stopped. "What's wrong?"
Rei had suddenly become wide-eyed. "I sense...danger..." she said slowly, sorting out her danger-sense' she was receiving.
Darien looked around. "What is it? I don't see anything."
Rei gasped, then grabbed his arm. "Quick! We have to get off the street! The earthquake is about to hit!"
Very tall buildings surrounded them. If the quake hit now, they'd be showered with heavy glass window fragments. Darien nodded. "This way. My apartment's only a block down the street. I have emergency supplies there."
Rei and him ran off as quickly as they could.
Deep below the ocean, the tiny base reactor of the Negaverse Spy Sat number 2 went critical. All ten reactors imploded, then let out a huge shockwave equal to a large nuclear device. Each wave amplified each other as they headed for Tokyo. Not only that, but the shockwave was laced with Nega-Energy. There was no telling what that might affect.
Darien pounded the button for his apartment's floor on the elevator panel. Rei cautioned she didn't know if they had enough time to take the stairs, so it seemed like the best choice. Rei pressed the Close-Doors' as soon as she was in, and the car started acceding.
They both breathed a sigh of relief. "I'll call the others once we get up to your apartment." Rei said, gasping for air after the sprint.
Darien nodded, also gasping. "Ten floors to go." he said, looking at the indicator above the elevator door.
Suddenly, the shockwave hit. The elevator leapt up, then down, producing an ear-piercing screech. The lights immediately went dim and the entire building rocked. Rei was tossed in the air and back against her corner, winding her as she hit. Darien's feet slipped out from under him and he was forced to hold on to the railing inside the elevator just to remain upright.
The elevator car continued shuddering violently for thirty seconds as the two passengers held on to the flimsy guard rail inside for dear life. Just as suddenly as it hit, it stopped.
Rei slowly got to her feet. "Holy shit! That wasn't a normal quake!"
Darien looked around quickly. The roof was dented in several places, but the emergency side clamps seemed to be holding. "You okay?"
Rei shook her head. "No..." she hiccuped. "I feel sick..." she promptly fell to her knees and threw up.
Darien also felt queezy, but managed to hold back his stomach, despite the awful smell of vomit in the air.
Rei got to her feet slowly. "Ugg. That felt like a hit of Nega-Energy or something." she said, whipping her mouth clean with her jacket's sleeve.
Darien nodded. "It might have been an old Negaverse spy satellite going down. I learned a bit about their technology when they turned me over to their side."
Rei walked over to the emergency phone in the wall. She picked it up, but there was no dial tone, no answer, no nothing. "It's dead."
They paused for a moment. "The roof hatch." Darien smiled.
Rei nodded. "Give me a boost." she lifted her foot so he could act like a ladder. Darien grabbed the sole of her shoe and lifted her up to the roof. "Just a second!" Rei said, pushing against the removable panels.
Suddenly, the hatch flew down, throwing them both to the floor. Instead of the top of the shaft being visible, a large chuck of I-beam blocked their escape. "Great." they said, simultaneously. Serena barely knew what had just happened. The negative energy wave had knocked her unconscious during the last bit of the quake. She woke up on the opposite side of her room she had been on, and her arm was covered by an equally-thrashed Luna. "Wha?" she gasped.
Luna got to her feet painfully. "I knew it wasn't a normal earthquake!"
Serena sighed. "Luna, for the last time, it was just a really big one, that's all."
"But I felt Nega-Energy!" Luna explained.
Serena shook off the comment. "As long as we're okay..." she paused. "Oh no! Sammy!"
Luna and Serena opened the door to the hallway to see the stairs to the main floor had collapsed. Serena went first, walking down the hallway to her brother's room. She knocked. "Sammy? Are you alright?!?"
Sammy coughed from inside.
Luna promptly slammed herself against the door, opening it despite it's damaged frame. Serena rushed inside to see her brother huddled in the corner of his room. "Sammy! Are you okay?"
Sammy nodded quietly. "Yeah, I'm fine..." he said, ignoring some blood trickling from his nose.
Suddenly, the hallway around Sammy's bedroom door let out a final groan of protest and fell from it's place, onto the fallen steps below. Serena and Luna leapt forward as the floor under them gave out as well. Soon, half of Sammy's room lay on the dinning table below.
Sammy started whimpering uncontrollably. Serena and Luna were huddled at the other corner. "Now what?" Luna whispered.
Serena started whimpering too, glaring at the hole that used to be the exit.
Ami looked up from the floor with a haze around her head. She had collided with the desk rather harshly, and her temples were pounding. "Oh my god..." she gasped, rubbing the bridge of her nose.
Her computer lay smashed in eighty pieces on the floor. Her entire room was rearranged. "Mom? Dad?!?" she called out.
She then remembered they had gone out for the afternoon for a tennis match. At least they'd be safe at the courts, she thought.
She then turned her attentions to her Data Computer. "I have to find the others!"
The energy wave, however, had knocked out her computer as well.
Darien pulled out a long-stem rose and threw it at the metal blocking their escape. It bounced off the I-beam harmlessly. "Damn!" he yelled.
Rei pulled out her power stick. "I'll get this one." she smiled. "MARS POWER!"
Rei blinked. "What the fuck?"
Darien sighed. "The area's probably oozing with Nega-Energy. We'll have to wait for it to wear off."
Rei growled. "Mars POWER!!" she tried again to no effect.
Darien sighed. "Rei, calm down."
Rei pocketed her stick quickly. "Dammit." she fumed. "So what do we do now?"
Darien paused. "Your little scrolls can vaporize things, can't they?"
She pulled out one of her ofudas. "Yes, but only against evil...and I can't really say an inanimate I-beam is evil'." she said, ripping the paper in frustration.
Darien sighed and sat down.
"You're giving up?" Rei blinked.
Darien shrugged. "What else are we going to do? Do you have a can opener, or a stick of dynamite? I'm just going to wait until we get rescued."
Rei sighed, then sat down as well. "What should we do about that?" she said, pointing to her accident' on the elevator floor. "I don't think I can stand the smell much longer."
Darien pointed to her bag of clothes. "Pick it up with that, then push it out one of the holes in the wall."
Rei looked over to a nasty gouge in the opposite corner. "Cool." She said, reaching into the bag.
Darien blinked as she pulled out a pair of see-through panties and a lacy bra. Rei scooped up the puke into the bag and quickly crumpled it up and stuffed it out the hole. Rei sat back down, happy the smell was almost completely gone. She looked over to Darien. "What?" Darien blushed. "Oh, sorry. It's just the..." he said, pointing to the lingerie.
Rei smiled. "Oh, sorry. If you want, I'll just put it in the corner."
Darien smiled. "Thanks. I'm not really comfortable around that stuff. Serena doesn't even wear that kind of underwear."
Rei sat back against the opposite wall. "Really?" she grinned. "What if Victoria Secret' gets taken over by the Negaverse? You gotta help fight them, even then!"
Darien frowned. "Sure. I'm REALLY sure a lingerie company holds the secret to the downfall of the Sailor Scouts."
Suddenly, the already dim lights went out.
Rei sighed. "I have a feeling we'll be in here a while."
Three hours later, ten P.M. was rolling around. Tokyo had not even begun to recover. Lita and Andrew had been lucky. They were in a sturdy cafe as the blast hit, and were completely uninjured. They were now out helping people who were hurt or dying out in the street.
Lita growled as she desperately tried to lift a steel frame off of a wailing baby.
"Dammit! MOVE!" she yelled, pouring all her effort into one last attempt.
The two hundred pounds of metal finally gave way, lifting enough so Andrew could reach under and pull out the terrified child. "Okay! She'd free!" he signaled.
Lita's muscles gave way to exhaustion and she collapsed, dropping the frame on the ground. She lay on the street, gasping. "Andrew. Please help me up."
They had been working steadily for two hours now. Three firemen had joined in, but they needed help to try and save everyone still alive, so Lita and Andrew had volunteered.
Lita could feel her powers were knocked out, so turning into Jupiter and vaporizing rock out of the way was not an option. Andrew walked over to her and helped her to her feet. "You okay, Lita? Take a break. There's nobody left anyway. The firemen found most of the people already."
Lita smiled sweetly. "Thanks, Andrew. Are you sure?" Andrew nodded. "Here. I'll rest with you."
The two sat down on a grassy patch not touched by fallen debris. Lita lay on her back and closed her eyes for a moment. Luna was right, she thought.
Andrew couldn't help but notice her finely developed chest as she stretched back. "Uh, Lita." he said timidly. "You were really great today."
Lita sat up painfully. "Really? Thanks." she smiled.
Her entire face was sweaty and red, and her hair looked messy and wet, but Andrew couldn't help but realize how sexy that made her look. "You look...incredible, Lita." he mumbled, barely noticing his own words. He was caught up in her eyes.
Lita blushed deeply. "Th-thank you, Andrew..." she smiled again, turning away from his gaze.
Andrew sighed. "Listen, Lita. I'm sorry. It's just, you know. There's that connection with near-death experiences and..."he paused. "Wanting to be with someone."
Lita nodded and leaned over to his face, kissing him lightly. "I know."
The two embraced, kissing each other desperately.
Artemis woke up finally, sprawled out on his stomach. "Whoa...what a rush. I'm eating more tuna-mix from now on!"
He looked around. The entire apartment was in shambles. Furniture lay everywhere, the roof was cracked in several places, and the sink was flooding the kitchen. "Mina!?!" Artemis gasped.
A loud moan came from the other room. Artemis got up and ran over to the source. Mina lay on the floor, with the entire bed on her torso, pinning her down. It was a big bed to, and the frame was too heavy for one person to lift alone, not even considering the mattresses. Artemis gasped as he saw a small pool of blood under her head. "Mina! Speak to me, girl!" Artemis yelled.
Mina smiled. "Oh..." she said slowly. "Artemis. How are you?"
The cat smiled. "Thank god you're alive!
The blond frowned. "My head feels wet. Am I bleeding?"
Artemis looked all around her head. A small red spot indicated where a shard of glass had sliced her scalp. "It's not too bad. Probably just a few stitches." he said with a sigh of relief.
Mina nodded painfully. "I think I broke some ribs. This damn bed is too heavy. I can't move it. It fell on me during the quake." she explained slowly, still drowsy from the loss of blood.
Artemis nodded. "Listen, I can't lift the bed myself. I'm going to get Ami. Will you be alright?"
Mina struggled against the bed. "No! Artemis! Don't leave! I don't want to be alone."
Artemis blinked. "Okay, I'll stay until someone comes."
Mina smiled. "Thanks, kitten."
Artemis sighed. "How can I say no to you?" he leaned over her head and kissed her.
Darien woke to the sound of Rei sighing. "Uh, wha?"
Rei blinked. "Oh, sorry, Darien. Did I wake you?"
He sat up in the darkness. "What's wrong?" he asked. "Can't get to sleep?"
Rei paused. "I'm afraid not."
Darien sat up, now fully awake. "That's okay, I just needed a nap anyway. What time is it?"
Rei glanced at her wrist communicator. It lit up and displayed one fourteen. "Quarter past one." she said.
Darien nodded, not that Rei could see him in the dark anyway. "You know what always helps me get my mind off my problems?" he said, yawning slightly.
"What?" Rei asked, curious.
Darien smiled. "Stories. You know, talking. Anything."
Rei shrugged. "Why not?" she paused. "You first."
Darien coughed. "Me? I don't have too many stories."
Rei smiled to herself. "Come on. What about your family, or distant relatives?"
"Well, I do remember," he paused "well, I remember I had a co-worker." he paused again. "Naw."
"No! Go on! I'm interested!" Rei urged happily.
Darien cleared his thought. "Well. I was working in a video store, that is, before I got hooked up with Metro Studios. And anyway, his name was Walter. Walter wasn't quite right in the head, if you know what I'm saying."
"One day, he came back from a trip to Hong Kong. He had a kinda weird look on his face so I asked him what was wrong. So, he makes sure we're all alone, then gets all close so he can whisper. It seems like they were serving some strange dish on the flight over, and it got his stomach kinda weird.
Eventually, he had to use the bathroom. So he gets up and waits in line for the toilets. He gets in and takes a dump."
Rei blinked. "So? What's so odd about that?"
"Well, he gets up, does up his pants and is about to flush, when he sees a vortex in the toilet bowl."
Darien laughed. "I swear to god he said he saw a vortex. He threw in a piece of toilet paper, and he said he saw it vaporize into another dimension!"
Rei was silent for a long time. "So he dumped into another dimension?"
Darien nodded, but added "Yup."
"That was weird." Rei said simply.
"I told you he was a weird guy." Darien agreed. "Your turn."
Rei paused. "Geeze. I don't really have anything to compare with your vortex story."
Darien shrugged. "Come on, anything. It doesn't have to be good."
"Well, there was that one time Lita tried to teach Mina to cook." Rei began. "Lita came over to Mina's apartment and got her all set up. Me and Serena even came over to observe. I think she was making stew or soup or something."
"Go on." Darien urged.
Rei smiled. "Well, Mina started to slice up some carrots. Serena hates carrots, and was wining and complaining as usual. Anyway, she was distracting poor Mina from what she was doing. Mina looked up to say something, and before she knew it, she sliced off her finger!"
"True story." Rei continued. "So Mina finally realized she's missing half of her index finger and looks down at it. She gasps and starts everyone in a panic. Lita thought she saw it fall on the floor, so she's frantically searching down on the ground, while I'm..."
Serena looked over to Sammy, who was still wide-awake, in shock over the days events. Luna crawled up on her shoulder to whisper in her ear. "Serena, I think your brother needs medical attention. He's been in shock since this afternoon, and his nose is still bleeding."
Serena nodded solemnly. "We can't leave, though." she whispered back. "The window's too far up to jump."
Luna sighed. "If only you were Sailor Moon. Then you could easily jump down."
Serena stood up suddenly. Luna almost fell off into the hole in the floor. "Sammy! Get ready! I'm coming over!"
Luna gasped. Serena was going to transform in front of her own brother. She shook her head desperately.
Sammy blinked. "Serena, how can you get over here? The hole? Remember?" he shivered.
Serena pulled out her transformation broach. "Mooooooon, Crystal POWER!" she yelled, holding it in the air.
Sammy blinked. "Serena? Are you okay? What are you doing with that Sailor Moon toy?"
Serena blinked as nothing happened as well. "What the..."
Luna breathed a sigh of relive.
Sammy started laughing. "Were you hit on the head? You thought you were Sailor Moon for a second there!"
Serena pocketed the broach. "Uh, yeah. Sorry Sammy. Must be the bump on my head." she said, confused to hell.
Luna leapt back up onto Serena's shoulder. "At least you made him laugh. I think he's over his shock of the disaster now."
"But why didn't I transform?" Serena mimed.
"That shockwave was probably full of negative energy. I'll bet it knocked out your powers for a while. They'll come back sooner or later." Luna explained. "That's why I had the heebie-jeebies this morning. I sensed Nega-Energy."
Serena looked at her watch. "So I bet our communicators were knocked out as well."
Luna nodded. "I'm afraid they're part of the package. We're stuck here until someone comes back."
Her watch read three in the morning.
Artemis had remained loyal to his promise, and was watching over Mina as she slept. All her bleeding had stopped, but Artemis still felt horrible. He kept imagining the worse. Maybe Mina had internal bleeding, or a bad concussion, or maybe she broke her neck and couldn't tell she was paralyzed because the bed was holding her down.
So, the white cat curled up beside his lover and student, keeping a close eye on her. "Don't do anything stupid, like die on me here, Mina." he said quietly.
Suddenly, a knock came from the front door. Artemis took a chance and decided to answer. "Hello? Who's there!"
Ami answered to his relief. "Artemis? Are you guys okay? Is the door safe to some in?"
He ran to the door. "Hurry! Mina's been trapped since this afternoon." he let her in.
Ami came in and went over to the bed. "Okay, we need to lift one of the ends so it rolls off of her."
Artemis got under one end and stood straight up, pushing the bed up will all his might. Ami grabbed the bed as well and lifted as hard as she could. Slowly, they managed to get the bed off of Mina. She woke up with a start. "What happened?"
"Try and sit up, slowly." Ami said.
Mina had to roll on her side and get up. "I knew it...broken rib." She yelled painfully.
Artemis sighed deeply as he saw she was basically okay. "Come on, I'm calling 9-1-1."
The two girls nodded. Ami went over to the window. "I can't find anyone. I've been to everyone's house but Serena's and even the arcade, but I can't find the team."
Mina walked over to the view of a cracked street and damaged houses, holding her chest. "Well, Artemis won't let me help, but I bet Serena's home."
Ami nodded. "All my power were knocked out during the quake. I think Luna was right. It was defiantly from the Negaverse."
Artemis came back from the phone. "Ambulance is coming. Don't worry about your powers, they'll return in a day or so."
Mina sighed. "Great. I'm a normal teenager again for a day, and I have to spend it in the hospital."
Artemis smiled. "I guess I'll have to wait a few weeks for that exercise you promised me."
Ami blinked as the two kissed passionately. Mina noticed her reaction. "Oh...I guess the secret's out."
Artemis blushed slightly. "They would have found out sooner or later."
"You two?" Ami gasped.
Mina smiled. "What can I say...he's soooooo charming, how could I resist a man like that? No matter what he looks like!"
Artemis smiled proudly.
Lit giggled suddenly as Andrew began kissing her neck. The two had rolled down a hill into a nearby shallow stream. The cool water felt good on her body, but not as good as the sensations her crotch was sending out. They were both half naked, hot, and now, drenched. Andrew had all but forgotten about Rita, his girlfriend, and was now focused solely on Lita.
"Andrew, what if someone sees us?" she giggled as he reached around to her back, fumbling for her bra catch in the romantic moonlight.
"Ask them to join?" he joked as their lips met again in a long, intoxicating kiss.
Lita helped him undo her tight bra and teased him by ducking into the water before he could get a glimpse of her naked breasts.
"What are you doing?" he asked suspiciously.
Lita dove under the water for a second, snatching his boxers and tipping him into the water. She emerged behind them. "Look what I got." she smiled sexily, holding his trunks up and giving him a view of her dripping wet tits.
"My-m-m-..." he mumbled as Lita came closer to him. "You're gorgeous..."
Lita's smile widened as she stood toe to toe with him, letting her pink, hard nipples brush up against his chest. "So, Andrew...what would you like to do while we're in this lovely river?"
Andrew fell over as Lita took another step, pushing him with her firm breasts. He made no attempt to hide the fact he had an enormous hard on as she straddled his belly, rubbing her ass against his penis.
Lita smiled at his inability to talk and took off her already skimpy panties. "I've been waiting for this a long time," she said simply, kissing him again as she positioned herself over his throbbing cock. "Fuck me."
Before Andrew could realize what was happening, Lita squatted and impaled herself on his penis, letting it slide all the way inside her tight, oozing slit. They both gasped as the sensations registered. A gush of water ha been pushed inside her and her entire cunt was now full of liquid. She gasped and shivered slightly as Andrew pulled out and pumped up into her again. Her nipples were in desperate need of touching so Lita grabbed them herself. Andrew smiled as he saw Lita loosing herself to the feeling.
Strands of oil-like lubricants began seeping out of her hole as Andrew massaged the underside of her rounded, firm mounds. Lita began thrusting her crotch up and down, close to her orgasm. All the liquids inside her were causing a vacuum every time she let Andrew's cock out a bit, causing her pleasure to build and him to be sucked back inside her throbbing twat. Her clit was swollen to such a huge size, just the rush of water as he pounded into her was getting her off. Lita began moaning as her climax approached.
Andrew was far from cumming, however, and withdrew. Lita gasped but held on to er control as he lifted her out of the water, carrying her over to the grassy embankment. "I'm going to fuck you until you scream, dear Lita." he promised.
Lita smiled, still teasing her erect nipples. Andrew lay her on the ground and went on top of her. He pushed his cock head into her aching slit, teasing her with just it's tip. "Do you like being teased?" Andrew asked.
Lita smiled evilly. "No." she said, using a judo move to flip him over.
Before he could get up, Lita was on top of him holding his member in her hand. She gently started jerking him off as her pussy took him in again. Using him like a dildo, Lita began trusting him up into her with her grip on the base of his penis. Her tits bounced and swayed, just out of reach of his tongue as the waves of pleasure made her convulse slightly.
Eventually, the pleasure was too much for her to handle, and she had to brace herself on all fours so she didn't loose her balance. Andrew thrusted his hips up against Lita's to keep her pleasure building.
Lita started gasping for air as each thrust of Andrew's cock hit her swollen clit and filled her tunnel with his warm meat. She began thrusting her hips in rhythm as Andrew felt he was about to cum.
The sight of her gorgeous, shiny body was all he could take, and in one final thrust, he fully embedded his dick inside her and started spurting out hot cum.
The warm goo hitting the walls of her slit finally pushed Lita over the edge. Her cunt gripped Andrew's cock and started pumping every last bit of jiz into her. She arched back, screaming as her orgasm hit and nearly knocked her out. She slid up and down along his dick a few more times, each thrust sending an amazing climax through her body.
Andrew pumped the last bit of cum inside her, gasping for air as her clit refused to let go until she too had finished spasming. She literally fell off of him, lying on the ground, exhausted.
They were quiet for a long time. "Thank you..." Lita said finally.
Andrew gathered his clothes weakly. "No problem..." he gasped.
"Serena!!" Ami called out.
The house looked bad. Inside the front door, half the living room was crushed by fallen chunks of second floor. Ami didn't see how the house could even be standing after such damage. Still, she and Artemis had to find Serena. How ironic it would be if a simple earthquake-like-accident accomplished what the Negaverse had been trying to do for years now. Kill Sailor Moon.
"Ami?" a reply came from upstairs. "Help! We're trapped! Sammy's here with us!"
Artemis leapt up along the walls and damaged areas until he got up through the floor of Sammy's destroyed room. Ami ran over to the phone. "Hello? Fire department? I need a ladder here quickly. Two people are trapped in the second story of their house."
Serena smiled over to Sammy. "See? I told ya everything would be okay."
Sammy nodded. "Just don't try and call upon your moon power' again!" he laughed.
"So we're lost, right, and the royal search party is fanning out. The Queen was actually getting kinda worried." Darien said, talking about a snippet of memory from the Moon Kingdom.
"So what did you do?" Rei asked, intrigued. "Didn't you have maps?"
"Oh, no maps. Serenity just wanted to go for a stroll, you see. Not the hike it turned into." Darien explained. "So here we are, me, three other guards, and Queen Serenity, hiking around this weird forest. She's getting kinda prissy, and starts demanding someone find a landmark we could identify."
"So, suddenly, one of the guards starts feeling around on all the trees." he said suddenly.
"What??" Rei laughed.
Darien nodded. "So, in one of those home-boy' gangster type voices, he suddenly says I know...we on Pluto.' And Serenity looks at him. She says what? How can you tell?' So the guard points to the trees. From the bark!'"
Rei laughed. "Disney wasn't even alive back then. And I've heard that joke before."
Darien sighed. "Yeah, yeah. I'm just trying to fill my end of the conversation." he snickered.
"That's okay. We could do something else if you want?"Rei offered.
Darien sighed. "Not much to do, stuck in a metal box like this."
Rei sighed. "This is right off a bad date-movie. Two people stuck in a dark elevator?"
Darien frowned. "Speaking of witch, I hope you're not still hung up on me." Rei blinked. Was she? It had been so long since she had given it any thought. "Of course not..." she said, fairly quietly.
Darien paused. "That's good." he said after a second.
They were silent for another minute or so. Rei finally yawned. "I'm going to sleep."
Darien nodded uselessly in the dark. "I'll probably be awake and make sure we can get rescued if someone calls down the shaft."
Rei curled up in her corner and silently went to sleep on her lingerie.
Darien let out a loud sigh and propped himself against the wall. It was going to be a long night.
Morning dawned over the Tokyo city scape without any more problems. However, the city was still repairing it's self from last night.
Ami, Mina, Serena, Luna and Artemis were now safe at the hospital as Mina's rib and head were attended to. She was lucky enough to get her own room, despite the chaos, and they were able to talk freely.
"If the others were able to contact us, they would have by now." Ami said, almost dozing off from the lack of sleep. Only Mina had a good night's sleep thanks to the pain killers. They were all worried about Rei and Lita.
Mina smiled. "Don't worry. If there's two people in this city that can laugh at a nine-point- three earthquake, it's those two."
Luna nodded. "True, but Ami's right. They must be in trouble if they haven't tried to call or anything."
Serena was nearly in tears. "And what about Darien? He hasn't called either..."
Luna sighed, "I'm sure he's fine."
Darien took a deep breath and woke up. He quickly looked around, disorientated. A thin shaft of sunlight fell from the access hole in the roof, lighting the elevator car. He sighed and was about to go back to sleep when he noticed Rei.
Rei was sleeping with her butt facing him. Normally, he wouldn't have given it much thought, but her long school-uniform skirt had been flipped up over her hips, revealing her white panties.
Darien allowed himself another few seconds to look before he shook it off his mind.
Suddenly, Rei moaned softly. Darien blinked as he realized he was getting turned on, watching her sleep across the elevator from him. He turned away and faced the wall, laying down. The last thing he needed to worry about was his feelings for Rei.
As he thought about it, he realized just that. He DID have feelings for her. He growled at his racing mind, which was leading him further into this possibility. "Dammit, I don't need this..." he said to himself.
"What?" Rei asked suddenly, scratching her head. "What's wrong?"
"You're awake?" Darien replied.
Rei nodded. "I see we have some light now."
Darien decided not to huddle in the corner and look obviously like he was avoiding her. He rolled over. "Uh, yeah..."
She had just woke up, but somehow, still looked stunning. The light teased Darien's poor eyes as the tops of her breasts caught the beam. Her grey vest lay on the ground. During the darkness, Rei had undressed to only her shirt, skirt and underwear. Darien coughed slightly.
"What's wrong?" Rei asked. She smiled inwardly, knowing full well what was going on.
Darien smiled quickly. "Oh, it's just that, you're a good morning person."
"What I mean is, well, you're not like some people who have to wake up fully to look like their normal selves." Darien improvised.
She smiled sweetly. "Thanks. You too. But, you got a little cowlick right here..." she went over to him, licking a finger and adjusting Darien's hair to his standard look. "That's better."
Darien smiled in thanks. Inside, however, he was frantically trying to suppress his attraction for the lovely young woman he was trapped all alone with. When she had licked her finger, it really got to him. She had such a lovely face, and seeing her delicate pink tongue wet her slender finger was too much. He desperately tried to suppress an erection he felt was building up.
In the days they were going out', Darien easily stayed a good distance away, mainly because he didn't like pushy women, and Rei was rather forward back then. However, she was behaving normally now, and normal for her was irresistible to him.
"Listen," Darien said suddenly, "you never did tell me about your parents." It was the best thing he could do to keep his mind off her, at least sexually.
Rei sat down in her respective corner. "Well, to tell you the truth, I didn't really know them."
Darien looked perplexed. "I don't get it. Do ALL you Sailor Scouts have no parents? Hell, even mine are gone. The only ones with active families are Serena and Ami."
Rei shrugged. "The only family I've ever known is Grandpa." she said, quietly fiddling with her own hair. "He says one of these days he'll tell me all about them, though, so there must be a good reason I don't know in the first place."
Darien nodded quietly. "That's nice."
Rei looked up at him. He seemed to be slightly dazed. "Are you okay?" she asked.
Darien shook his head. "What?"
Rei smiled. "You seemed distracted for a second there." she said, kneeling down on her knees and pushing out her chest slightly. "Is anything wrong?"
Darien shook out of it. "Uh, sorry. I'm just a little tired. Do you mind if I take a nap?"
"Uh, no...go ahead." Rei said.
Darien curled up and faced the wall. "Thanks, Rei."
Rei smiled to herself. I guess I am still hung up on him. Oh well... she thought, then sat back against the wall.
Andrew woke up to Lita rustling around the room. The couple had rented a hotel room the night before to finish what they started by the river. He looked around to see Lita getting dressed quickly. "Hey, hey! Lita! Why are you up so early?"
Lita turned to him. "I gotta go." she said, tossing on her shirt.
Andrew gasped. "Wait! Was it something I did?"
Lita stopped dressing and turned to him. "Not at all." she smiled. "Actually, I really enjoyed last night, and I'll treasure it forever."
He got up, throwing on his own shirt hastily. "Then why does it look like you're rushing off like you hate my guts?"
Lita pointed to the phone. "The lines are down, and I have to find my friends." she paused. "I should have done that before we made love. They could be dead for all I know."
Andrew nodded. "Why are you so worried? I'm sure they're fine."
"I can't tell you," Lita said quietly. "All I can say, is they're the most important people in my life, and it's for the best if we postpone any future engagements."
"But...I thought you wanted this..." he asked, confused.
Lita nodded. "I did. But you have a girlfriend that you've been in love with probably longer than I've even known you."
Andrew realized she was right. Their night was more of a heat of the moment' thing, not real love. "I-I...understand...I just hope we can still be friends..."
Lita kissed him. Just on the cheek this time. "Don't worry. I'll be pounding on your Sailor V game before you know it. Nothing's changed..." she smiled. "But now I know about that birthmark on your butt."
Andrew blushed. "Well, good luck."
Lita nodded and ran out the door to find the other Sailor Scouts, leaving a dazed and drained Andrew all alone again. "You were great." she said quietly as the hotel door closed.
"You too." Andrew answered.
Rei looked around the cramped space with a sigh. The two had been locked up in the elevator for nearly twelve hours now, and she was hot, tired and hungry. "Ugh." she said simply. She was used to the heat, thanks to her hours in front of the meditation fires, but she kept fantasizing about her and Darien.
She kept her distance, though, and decided that even if nothing came of today's efforts on her part, she would count the experience as fun. She loved talking with Darien. He seemed so mysterious and out of reach. It was a true pleasure to get to know him.
She didn't want to seem to anxious, though. That was one of her problems with guys. She always came on too strongly. However, she wanted to give him good reason to get intimate with her if he decided not to avoid the fact. Rei quietly took off her shirt, revealing her light gray sports bra. It wasn't exactly skimpy, so it was perfect. She could easily explain it to the heat, and still get him aroused if needed.
By the way he was looking at her before, though, she knew being undressed was not necessary. Rei thought for a second. She didn't want to fuck with time or destiny. She reached into her purse and grabbed her spermicide applicator. It was still far from expired, and she hid it away in her shirt, just in case. The last thing she wanted was to screw up the future so that Reeny may never be born and help them out in the present.
Sure enough, the heat and sunlight finally woke Darien up. He moaned, shrugging off a light headache from the stuffy air. "What time is it?" he asked, turning over to face her.
Rei smiled and looked at her watch. "It's only nine thirty."
Darien became wide-eyed as he saw Rei's shirt on the floor, and her tight bra clinging to her breasts. "Oh, I'm sorry..." he turned away. "Were you changing?"
Rei shook her head. "No, it's just the heat. Hope you don't mind."
"No, not at all." he squeaked, sitting up across from her.
Rei sighed. "I tried using my power stick again, but it only fizzled. We're still not up to full power yet."
Darien adjusted his collar. "Is that why it's so hot in here?"
Rei smiled. "No, I didn't set fire to anything. You look kinda hot. You shouldn't wear that sweat shirt in this heat."
Darien looked down at his sweat-drenched front. "I don't suppose you have anything light I could wear from your bag, do you?" he said, taking it off.
Rei shrugged. "I don't think you'd look good in a bra."
Darien, now shirtless, looked away. "Rei. I'm sorry, but could you put on your shirt? I don't feel comfortable with you half naked around me."
Rei paused for a second. "Uh, sure..." she said finally, feeling kind of guilty. She stood up and reached over to her shirt, lifting it in the air to find the bottom.
To both their surprise, her capsule of spermicide dislodged from it's folds and flew across the room, landing near Darien. He picked it up and read the label. Rei was silent, not knowing what to say.
Darien had his back to her, and ducked his head, not knowing what to do either. Finally, he looked at her. "Rei? Have you been trying to seduce me?"
Rei smiled guiltily. "Well, not really...it's just that..."
Darien left his inhibitions on the floor and stood up to meet her gaze. "It worked..." he said simply, leaning forward and kissing her softly.
Their lips brushed against each other as Darien waited hopefully for her reaction. Rei sighed slightly and leaned into him in a passionate french kiss. Their tongues darted across each other. A trickle of drool escaped Rei's soft lips as their kiss became more intense.
Darien disengaged her lips to admire her deep, shiny black eyes. "You're so beautiful," he said softly as they embraced again.
Rei laughed softly as she probed his mouth. Bingo. She thought.
Darien couldn't believe what he was doing. He thought back to the beginning of their concealment and realized it was only inevitable. They both loved each other, in one degree or another, and deep down, he was enjoying this. Her arms were wrapped snugly around his waist, pressing his crotch closer to her firm stomach. How could any normal, heterosexual male NOT enjoy this.
Darien reached around her back undoing her skirt and letting it fall to her ankles. He could feel her nipples pressed up against his chest, and it was driving him crazy. "Rei," he paused, pushing her away slightly "Would you allow me the pleasure of making love to you?" he asked, gazing into her eyes.
Rei smiled coyly. "I thought you'd never ask, Tuxy." She leapt on his waist, pushing him over.
Darien gasped as Rei undid his pants and pulled them off, revealing his erect penis. "What are you doing?"
Rei smiled. "I saw your face when I licked my finger. Besides, I gotta apply my protection. This will give you something to do while you wait."
She slowly slid down him and positioned her face over his cock. She looked up at his surprised face and gently took his rod into her mouth.
Darien sighed as her warm mouth closed around him. Her tongue started darting back and forth on his penis' tip, causing it to go rock hard. Rei squeezed her lips around Darien's shaft and began sliding him into her all the way. Her mouth was completely full of his hard cock as she reached over to her spermicide capsule and applied it to her aroused pussy.
Darien arched back as Rei's tongue rubbed all over his member, making him start to spurt pre-cum into her eager mouth. She worked him with the sides of her mouth, occasionally taking him out and kissing his throbbing tool. It felt like heaven. Rei giggled to herself and started to pound away at Darien's dick, sucking it with all her breath.
This completely caught him off guard and hi groaned as his balls let loose their load onto her face. Cum hit her chin and trickled down to her cleavage.
Rei noticed where his attentions were focused and slowly undid her bra. Darien literally gasped when her full, perfectly rounded mounds became visible. She laid out on top of him, letting her nipples brush against him. They kissed passionately, and Darien was aware of hot juice that was dripping onto him from Rei's slit. Her love hole was seeping lubricants at an amazing rate, and Rei was getting hotter by the second.
Darien slowly flipped her on her back and kneeled between her long, slender legs to her delight and started teasing her nipples. They were already hard and standing out, and every time he touched her silky titfleash, they ached and throbbed. She started gasping as they felt like her tits would explode in Darien's hands.
He kissed her, relaxing her a bit. "Not yet, my love. I want you to have the best cum of your life." he said, receiving a smile from her as she teased her thighs with her hands.
Darien reached down to her throbbing clit, massaging her thighs with juice. Rei shivered in anticipation as his fingers slowly worked their way up to her slit and poked inside. Her hips thrust forward onto his finger as Rei was hit by a wave of pleasure. She was so aroused, any touch was like a mini orgasm.
Rei gasped again as he withdrew his finger and brought it to her mouth. It was glistening with her own cum as she eagerly licked his finger. Rei smiled at the taste. If she wasn't so goddamn horny already, she may have asked Darien to lick her slit for a taste of his own, but she wanted to be mounted, right then and there.
Darien seemed to know it was time. He placed a hand on each of her lovely tits and slowly parted her tight slit with his cock, which was back to full hardness at the feel of her nipples quivering in his hands.
As the first inch of his penis penetrated her, Rei gasped and closed her eyes, straining to keep control of her sanity. Darien had no problem sliding the rest inside her as even more slippery cum started dripping from her hole.
"Do you like that?" Darien asked, trying not to reveal he was nearly gasping for air as well.
Rei nodded, cupping her hands around her tits. "Oh god, yes! Just fuck me! Please!"
Darien smiled and began thrusting into her tight pussy. Rei began jerking her own hips up to meet his as he pounded his meat into her. Rei's juices were now seeping out onto her ass as she got more aroused.
All the heat and waiting they had gone through, the fact that they were angry and tired only heightened the heaven they were sharing now. "Oh god YES! F-f-fuck me, Darien!" she yelled out as tension in her cunt was building up.
Darien pumped in and out of her faster now, also close to cumming. He had been pumping her for nearly five minutes when Rei started screaming. Every thrust was pushing her closer to her climax, and she knew she couldn't stop it. "Oh, fuck! God dammit! Oh! I'm...shit...FUCK!" she screamed. "OH GOD! I'M CUMMING!"
Rei gasped out for air as Darien's cock thrust into her one last time, exploding inside her. Darien managed another thrust, jamming his balls against her slippery ass and causing his member to release a second jet of cum inside her throbbing slit. Rei grabbed her tits as a huge wave of ecstasy ran through her body. Every muscle in her body spasmed at once, causing her to arch backwards and convulse as the seconds wave hit. The cum inside her made the intensity grow with each wave. Darien was also pulled into the orgasm as his cock was sucked of every last drop from her pulsing tunnel.
Rei yelled out in pleasure one last time, then collapsed with Darien on top of her. Both of them were exhausted. He lay with his cock still inside her aching clit as they both desperately tried to catch their breath.
A good ten minutes later, they were apart again, only with rather silly looks on their faces. Rei sighed. "So, you regret breaking up with me?"
Darien smiled. "No."
Rei frowned. "Why the hell not?"
"I don't think I could keep up with you every night."
Rei, wearing only her panties and shirt now, crawled over to Darien and kissed him. "Oh, it would probably be only every other night." she said softly, teasing with his hair.
Darien swallowed hard. "Dear god..."
Rei smiled and returned to her corner.
Lita had joined with the group after tracking them down from a note Ami left at her house. She and Ami had promised Serena that they'd look into Darien's whereabouts.
The two, now in Sailor Scout form, stood at the entrance to Darien's apartment building. Lita opened the door. "So Artemis and Mina are lovers?"
Ami nodded. "I couldn't believe it myself."
"I always thought they were kind of close..." Lita shrugged.
"Oh, they just started...uh...you know...last month." Ami said as the two walked in the destroyed lobby. "Up the stairs."
Lita sighed. "I'm taking the elevator. I've climbed enough stairs to last a lifetime. Andrew and I were downtown helping the fire department rescue survivors."
Ami shook her head. "You're not supposed to use the elevator in emergencies, remember?"
Lita ignored her and pressed the up' button. Nothing happened. "Stupid fucking door!" she pounded on it, causing it to smash open on the ground. Lita blinked and looked in the shaft.
The elevator car was stuck a few floors up.
Ami noticed Lita was looking in the shaft and came over to look for herself. "Hey! Is anyone in there?" she yelled up at the car.
Jupiter smiled. "Mercury, you're too quiet." She cleared her throat. "HEY ELEVATOR CAR!!! IS ANYONE IN THERE?!!!"
Ami covered her ears from the sudden yell. "You could've warned me..."
"Yes? Lita? It that you?" Rei called back.
Ami blinked. "We're coming up! I'll freeze your car so it doesn't fall!"
Lita nodded and ran up the nearby emergency staircase. "I'm coming up!"
"Mercury Icebubbles...FREEZE!" Ami shouted, causing a jet of ice to hit the underside of the car, freezing it securely to the shaft's walls.
Rei woke up Darien, who had been napping. "Darien! Quick! Get dressed! Lita's coming up."
Darien gasped to full awake. The two desperately got dressed as quickly as possible. They managed to get off one last kiss as Lita powered up her attack from half a floor up. "Jupiter Thunder CRASH!" she bellowed, vaporizing the debris that blocked the hatch. She peered down into the car. "Hey! Darien's with you! Great!" she reached down and pulled the two up from the emergency hatch.
Once they were on solid ground again, Rei and Darien learned the negative energy had dissipated well over three hours ago. "Why didn't you try to transform? It's not like you had anything else to do?" Ami asked as they left the building, all transformed.
Rei looked over to Darien, who shrugged with a smile. "Well, we were actually just talking."
Lita frowned. "For a full day?"
Darien nodded. "Rei told me about the time Mina cut off her finger."
Lita laughed out loud. "Oh noooo..."
Rei nodded. "It was pretty cool. You should here this guy. He has some kick-ass stories."
Hope you enjoyed this story! Believe me when I say it was my pleasure. Personally, my favorite Scout is Rei, with Lita coming up a close second. Mina recovered with no complications, and Artemis eventually did get a hot night of passion for his troubles. Serena wonders why Darien hasn't talked much about his unforgettable day trapped with Rei, but is just glad to have him safe. Sammy is stupid and doesn't suspect a thing. All their parents were safe and returned home, conveniently, the next day. Rei's new fantasy is being trapped in a speeding bus with a bomb on it with Darien...but that's another story. I tried to spell-check, but I make NO promises. Happy Horndogs, and may the farce be with you! Till next time, keep your stick on the ice. I can be E-Mailed at Ninja Crowbotics, either at
