Sailor Mars narrowed her eyes at the pig-faced man, Mercury's words ringing in her ears. Purify him? Hadn't Usagi already tried that? Answering Rei's thoughts, Usagi shouted, "I already tried that, remember! I don't think any of my other attacks will work!"

An idea suddenly popped in Mars's head. This man was giving off a severe dark energy. His complacency with this whole situation was aggravating, almost as if he was confident he would escape one way or another. Before Mars even knew what was happening, there was a scroll in her hand and she was shouting, "Akuryo Taisan!"

The scroll was pressed against the forehead of the mask, and Rei wondered if she had just stopped the enemy, or made a huge fool of herself.

Enough of this, the Pigman thought to himself. For some reason, his words were getting less attention than the worthless man he had bowled over with the pipe. If these sailor twits weren't going to take him seriously, then he would simply break free and go on to indulge himself in further antisocial activities!

Calling upon his reserves of unnatural strength, the pig-masked antagonist wrenched his arms free of the ice. Though Wilbur succeeded in this regard, the holy ward cast by Mars found its mark upon his masked head. What Mercury's ice had done to his body, the charm was now doing to his spirit.

The Pigman shuddered as the ofuda took effect, then slumped over the remaining ice that gripped his legs and lower torso.



Jasper teetered on the brink of consciousness, being supported by Chibi Moon as others rushed forward to his aid. In his post-concussion delirium, he thought he had seen someone check his pulse with her slender fingers. All he was able to make out was her taller bearing and an expression bordering on that of a concerned mother. At the top of his blurred vision was a set of pink odangoes, belonging to the brave young guardian that risked her own safety for him.

His eyes widened when he caught a glimpse of Tuxedo Mask. That was his 'working' name, when Jasper was a bit better informed as to his true significance. "E.. End.." Despite earlier reservations, the injured businessman couldn't help but speak out the beginning of Endymion's name.

His eyes felt so heavy. Did he overwork himself at the job or the gymnasium? Being supported by a young girl didn't feel strange when he was suffering a mild bleeding injury and in need of medical attention; it instead felt rather comforting. Jasper's head tilted back towards Chibi Moon as he slipped away from reality into the world of dreams.

Tuxedo Mask was at the ready. He heard Luna's shout from the top of the stairs and Sailor Moon's reply. Apparently the man in the pig mask was possessed by something too great to be purified by the Stardust alone. Thankfully Mars' instincts kicked in just as the man broke his upper body free from the ice and she stunned him with an ofuda. He relaxed a little and then noticed Jasper bleeding in the arms of his future daughter.

"Mercury, can you contact the police and an ambulance with your computer? If not, can you or Venus run up to the shrine and call them?"

He didn't want to wait for someone else to call, though he hoped someone living near the shrine had taken noticed and reached out already. Then he went over to Pluto and Chibi Moon to help them support Jasper and keep pressure on his wound.

"End..." he heard Jasper choke out before fading entirely, and chills ran up his spine. Was he trying to say Endymion? How did this man know of his other self?

Kaede was still completely unaware of the seriousness of the situation. At this point, she took out her cellphone and began to snap photos of the senshi and Tuxedo Mask. At any time, she could have transformed to help them, but she seemed almost unaware that it was a possibility.

"So cool," she said as she continued giggling in her fangirl mania.

Her glee stopped when Jasper fainted, saying "End." End of what? A wave of odd nostalgia flowed over her. She hadn't seen this man. She hadn't seen any of these people before, but there seemed to be a moment in her existence where she knew of these people. It was sick and uncomfortable feeling.

She sighed in worry... and then began to upload her photos to her fan blog.

She was thankful that Sailor Mars' use of ofuda had managed to temporarily incapacitate the pig-masked man. She was doing her best to maintain the ice that held him hostage, but it was rapidly weakening--evidenced by his recent breakthrough. His slip into unconsciousness was welcome. Sailor Mercury had been hoping that Sailor Moon would attempt a more intense application of her healing abilities with the Silver Crystal, seeing as how the vandal had been unaffected by the previous effect. Focused purification had been successful against previous villains and monsters that were too strongly gripped by evil to initially restore.

When Tuxedo Mask called her attention to the still-injured Jasper, Mercury redirected herself. Heels clicked against the pavement as the blue-clad sailor soldier ran over. The sirens in the distance made it clear that, whether it had just been Mercury or other concerned citizens, the police and medical personnel were on their way.

"Please, allow me," she said, gently maneuvering her way towards the patient. First aid, especially in an emergency situation, was precisely the kind of skill that Ami Mizuno could be counted on. She worked quickly and efficiently, stabilizing the injured man. The level of effort she had already put into her dream to become a doctor someday was apparent to everyone nearby.

Sailor Mercury hoped the others would decide what to do with the pig-masked man. They could leave him for the police or make some other attempt to remove whatever corruption he was working under. (It didn't seem to occur to the blue-haired teenager that he could be a non-Chaos-influenced miscreant.) If the authorities were on their way, the sailor soldiers would have to clear the scene soon. They couldn't take the time to fill out a report and possibly be questioned or detained!

Rather than being startled by the sudden appearance of the Space-Time guardian, Sailor Chibi Moon was delighted to see Sailor Pluto as well as relived by her initial assessment of Jasper's condition. He was still clearly in need of help, however. 

Chibi Moon nodded when Pluto suggested calling an ambulance, but the man in the pig mask was still mobile and potentially dangerous in spite of Sailor Mercury successfully immobilizing him. 

The Trainee-soldier then quickly turned her attention back toward the partially frozen masked man. Her eyes widened as she saw him twisted his body to free his arms. She readied herself to continue defending Jasper if need be, but fortunately Sailor Mars was quick to respond with one of her scrolls.

Sailor Chibi Moon jumped slightly When Jasper suddenly attempted to speak. She didn't recognize that he had been trying to say her father's name, but she could still tell that  he wasn't trying to warn them to anything foreboding. There had almost been reverence in Jasper's tone.

She gave Sailor Mercury a confused look at first when she approached, but then nodded and readjusted her hold on Jasper as best as she could to allow for the blue clad Soldier to give a more thorough inspection of his health while still supporting him. 

"What do you think he meant by 'End'?" Chibi Moon asked as Mercury began to look the businessman over. Like her fellow soldier, she was confident that the others would be able to deal with the man in the pig mask before he did anything else unexpected while she would look over Jasper with Sailor Mercury, Pluto and both of her future parents.

"End..."
 
 
Sailor Pluto's brow furrowed as she continued to stare at the businessman with those ageless ruby red eyes, watching Mercury kneel down and examine him as a good doctor would.  She wondered why he would even try and mention that name to begin with?  There was something a little off about him, though she couldn’t put her finger on what it was and that simple fact worried the dark skinned woman to a very sharp degree.
 
 
"He was referring to Endymion, not an end as someone thought here.  Though why he would want to have anything to do with him, I do not know."

The baying of police sirens drew closer and closer to Sendai Hill, announcing the arrival of emergency personnel. Paramedics were quick to attend to the injured in order of need, with Jasper receiving a gurney ride to an awaiting ambulance. While their wounds were being treated, police officers attended those with the least injuries and recorded their experiences with the violent attack on the lone businessman.



"What a mess.."

Inspector Mori pursed his lips, looking over the sports car's shattered windshield. Even if the vehicle didn't align with his own particular interests, it was valuable to someone. Destruction of property occurred, and he was going to see a certain pig cool off in a jail cell for perpetrating amoral behavior.

"Let's get that slob out of here," Mori growled to his subordinates as he searched his pocket for a cigarette and a lighter. Was this vandal acting on his own, or was this individual connected to Schwarzpferd? The veteran detective resolved to find an answer, since the arrest wasn't nearly as satisfying as he hoped.

Maybe that had more to do with the sailor senshi being responsible for the Pigman's capture. In spite of his underlying gratitude, Mori couldn't shake the feeling that this crime was somehow beneath their purpose.

Ami Mizuno was every bit the attentive and diligent Japanese school-aged citizen now that the authorities had arrived. She dutifully gave detailed reports to a number of officers and filled out every form handed her way. As an eye witness to key elements of the attack, it was only right for her to do so. She was careful not to betray her involvement by providing too much information, but she remained cooperative during her police interactions. A number of officers walked away from her hoping that similar upstanding young people would one day carry on in their profession.

Her eyes lingered on the ambulance that carried the injured Jasper. Clearly, the sailor soldiers needed more information about this strange fight. Rei had been hostile to him and Luna supported the priestess's reaction, but Ami felt that there was a need to speak with him again. She kept her ears alert to discussions between the paramedics and radio transmissions directed to them. If she knew what hospital he would be transferred to, she could try and visit later this evening or tomorrow as a concerned bystander.

When the police had departed, they could resume their meeting--even if it was brief--and she would convey her intentions to Luna, if not the rest of the group. They had a lot to talk about.

"Excuse me, sir," Ami said, approaching the man who seemed to be coordinating the events on site--as soon as it looked like he was less occupied. "Are the others alright?"

She did her best to maintain the guise of a concerned and sympathetic onlooker. Her eyes tracked the pig-masked man with evident worry and distrust. Ami wondered if they would be removing his mask; how else would they identify the perpetrator to book him?

Despite the situation coming to a positive end, with Jasper alive and the pig mask man subdued, Venus was still curious about the whole situation. And when she got curious, she started makign plans that weren't exactly...by the book. 

By the time the police arrived, she was back to being regular old Minako, and she told the cops her version of what had happened at the shrine. She did her best to talk about how cool Sailor Venus was in particular, but otherwise her story lined up with the other girls' tales. But she wanted to know more about Jasper...

While the police were busy interviewing the others, Minako took a few unnoticed steps towards Jasper's damaged car. After looking around to see if anyone was staring at her, she stuck her head inside the open window on the driver's side, checking for anything interesting. It wasn't breaking in if he left the window open, right?

The police inspector had just finished locating his lighter and cigarette when Ami approached him with her words of concern. After a pause, the metallic lighter snapped shut. The smoke could wait; he did not want her to receive secondhand fumes. To his unexpected pleasure, reassuring a concerned bystander happened to be far more soothing to his temperment.

"They're mostly shaken up," Mori explained to the blue-haired schoolgirl. "Some of the citizens needed medical attention, but I am happy to state that all current cases involved superficial injury." The only two individuals who seemed to get the worst of the encounter had been Jasper, and the pig-masked villain whose mask was now carefully being removed by the police. Beneath the visage of terror lay the disheveled face of a black haired, bearded male.

Meanwhile, Minako's curiosity began to yield its first dividends. On the passenger seat of Jasper's car lay a stack of spiral-bound books that all shared a uniform appearance. The top copy bore the the title HOME PHONE: SALES AND ETIQUETTE TRAINING in both Japanese and English characters.

Ami sighed with relief, her response automatic and authentic. Of course she cared about the poor people caught up in this strange mess--she was a sympathetic person, after all. It was reassuring to know that no one had been seriously injured or otherwise harmed. They didn't deserve to be penalized for their unintentional involvement in this scenario. She glanced back at the inspector with a more comforted expression on her face.

"I'm so glad to hear it," she replied. "There's been too much of this kind of unrest lately."

She hoped that comment would be enough to loosen more information from the man, especially as she maintained her general appeal of "trustworthy, compassionate, and intelligent young person" that often made strangers pour their troubles out to her.

Mori's expression softened on a barely perceptible level. Ami was keenly aware of the dangers in the city, and perhaps she knew too much for him to give a moulded response. Better to assure her with some degree of honest speaking.

"What bothers me about this event is its similarity to attacks that occured in the past," Mori went on to explain. "In each of those situations, there was some kind of supernatural threat that was answered by the sailor senshi." His eyes shifted towards the citizens, as if to draw Ami's attention towards them. "Past experience tells me that I need to keep watching for the real threat to our people. Only that man with the pig mask seems to know anything, and so we're taking him into custody."

One of the bystanders was now taking a closer look at the vehicle.  While the detective didn't think that larceny was in Minako's heart, he had no way of being sure until after the fact. Better to address her in a way that did not register as obvious suspicion..

Mori suddenly shifted his body, turning to address Minako with his undivided attention. "Young lady, do be careful! There is an abundance of broken glass where you're standing. I wouldn't want you to injure yourself."

Sailor Moon remained by Tuxedo Mask's side, following him to Jasper's comatose body. As soon as his raspy word of 'End' reached her ears, Sailor Moon began to panic. "End? End?! Is he talking about the end of his life?! Oh no, he's not dead! He can't be dead! We've never had a civilian die! What are we going to do -" 

She paused, looking from Mercury, to Chibi Moon, to Tuxedo Mask. They didn't seem to be panicking about this at all. So maybe...she was overlooking something? Well, as long as they weren't panicking, the man must not have been dead...yet. 

Hearing the police sirens come near, Sailor Moon lost her transformation and continued to stay behind her soul mate. Police made her feel a little nervous, especially since she was prone to spill important information without thinking. So she stayed behind, letting Mamoru do all the talking in the case that an officer approached.

Minako jumped when Detective Mori spoke to her, taking few steps back from the car. That was a close one... She smiled at the officer, trying not to loo suspicious.

"Sorry, I didn't notice!" As soon as he went back to his own business, Minako was back at the car window. Just what was he doing with a book about phone sales? Determined to gain something from her own "private investigation", she quickly snatched the fist book she saw out of the car, hiding it behind her back. She'd look through it later when she had the time to try and learn more about Jasper.

Rei was mildly annoyed with these police officers. Couldn't they just accept her explanation and leave her be? All she told them was that she was the priestess and she had used one of her charms to disarm the Pigman. Why wasn't that enough for them?

Finally, after explaining for the seventh time, the officers left her alone and she was free to check on the activity of her fellow senshi. She eyed Minako, who had that 'I-just-did-something-bad-but-no-one-saw-me-so-it's-justified' look in her eyes. Tossing her raven hair over her shoulder, Rei marched over to Minako and hissed, "What did you just get away with?"

When Inspector Mori's attention shifted to Minako, Ami knew that her blonde friend must have been nosing around the crime scene for a reason. Probably a reason that the police would not appreciate. Probably also a reason that Ami would understand and could learn from later. The blue-haired teenager gave a concerned glance towards the other student, conveying worry about the mentioned danger of broken glass. Minako would know, however, that Ami was not dissuading her.

Then she tried to draw the older gentleman's attention to back to her with a few carefully worded questions about the previous events, the sailor soldiers' involvement, and whatever they knew of this strange pig-masked criminal.

Ami wasn't sure how much additional information he would divulge, but as long as he didn't give much more focus to Minako she would be successful in whatever she was doing.

Inspector Mori followed Ami's inquiries and answered what he could readily reveal, paying more attention to her than Minako. Fortunately for both the shrine priestess and her blonde friend, Mori's attention was limited to Ami and the police officers as they pursued their own individual tasks.

Shortly after their collection of details from the civilians, the authorities began to clean up the scene and return to their previously assigned duties. Jasper's car was towed away, while its owner was whisked away to St. Luke's International Hospital. Wilbur, or the Pigman as he was still being called by a few of the patrolmen, was bound for a jail cell.

"Give my regards to Hino-san," Mori said as he finished with Ami's questions. "I will prosecute those responsible to the fullest of my ability."

He bowed to the young lady in appreciation, then left with little other fanfare. If it was a supernatural menace, he would need the Sailor Senshi's help. Any lesser being would face the full extent of Japanese criminal law. When it came to the lives of the public, Mori would pull no punches in his duty to secure their safety.

Ami made her intentions to visit Jasper in the hospital known to Luna and the others, in the aftermath of the attack outside of the shrine. There were some protestations--not everyone agreed with the blue-haired girl genius's insistence that there was information that could be learned about the strange man. They could not prevent her from going, however, she didn't want to bring a large entourage that might attract unwanted attention. She would hopefully have even more to report to the group after she took some time to investigate this strange man.

St. Luke's International Hospital was not her mother's hospital--a shame, as it was always much easier to be granted admittance there, since she could say that she was visiting her mother. Still, as Ami walked up the concrete steps of the large building, she doubted she'd have much trouble visiting. Hospitals nowadays had less stringent requirements for visitors than were once common. In fact, when she walked in and looked around, the women behind the large reception desk didn't even look up at her. If she didn't need information about which room he had been lodged in, she probably could have walked right by without incident.

"Excuse me," she asked politely, stopping at the desk. "I'm here to visit Jasper Franklin."

A quick search on her Mini Supercomputer had revealed the businessman's surname, along with a brief (although rather lacking in details) bio.

"Could you please tell me which room he's in, if I am able to see him?"

The bouquet of flowers in her arms added to the overall look of kind concern. She knew it would impress favorably on the hospital staff.

Mamoru's blood ran cold when Sailor Pluto confirmed that Jasper was indeed trying to say Endymion. Thankfully the arrival of the police pulled him out of the shock and he detransformed alongside Sailor Moon. He must have looked shaken enough for the police to only question him minimally, his vision forgotten as the reason he had headed to the shrine in the first place. 

Once the authorities had cleared, he half-listened to the discussion and nodded in agreement with Ami when she mentioned going to visit Jasper in the hospital, mostly because he was hoping she could learn something about him in conjunction with their past lives during the Silver Millennium. From the limited memories of that time, he recalled no one by that name nor anyone who resembled Jasper.

Ever since the attack at the shrine, all of the senshi had been so concerned of the events and Jasper's health that it was stressing Usagi out. All of this seriousness was too much for her to handle. So in an attempt to loosen the tension and put smiles on the faces of her friends, Usagi began to plan a pleasant afternoon at the local waterpark.

She had her mother help her with all of the planning (in other words, Ikuko-mama did all the planning), and soon everything was all set. Once the information was set, Usagi sent a comm to all of her friends, Mamoru included, giving them all the invitation to join her at the local waterpark the following weekend. Smiling to herself, Usagi flopped onto her bed and began to read some manga while she waited for their responses.

The hospital receptionist, a young woman who was barely much older than Ami herself, looked on to the visiting young girl with a warm smile. Even though the man in question was foreign, what happened to him was dreadful; receiving a visit from aquaintances would be sure to improve his disposition.

"Are you a friend of his?" She asked, though Ami's pleasant demeanor and gift of flowers were already speaking well of her intentions. Turning to her computer, she pulled up the patient's record and confirmed his status.

"Mr. Franklin should be well enough to receive visitors. He is resting on the third floor, room 303."

This Old Tower wrote:
Jasper slowly awoke from what felt like a long dream, stretching up and awake within his own bedroom. He didn't quite remember how he got home. Did the young man work himself into exhaustion, or did he overestimate his drinking capacity? Perhaps it wasn't important in the long run.

Taking a few moments to pull on a pair of dark blue athletic shorts and a plain white t-shirt, Jasper walked into his kitchen and began to prepare himself a simple meal of scrambled eggs and bacon. As he worked over the stove, a short flash of movement washed over his field of vision.

Did someone break into his apartment? He'd soon teach them a lesson-

Jasper sighed as his eyes refocused. It wasn't an actual person in his apartment room, but an electronic image from his television set. It was turned on, but the sound was muted. He must have hit the wrong button before going to sleep.

Once his breakfast was prepared, Jasper carried his plate into the living room. Finding a comfortable seat before the TV, he raised the volume; the appliance was currently displaying some kind of reality show focused on the drama transpiring between the actors and the director of a daytime television drama. They were currently arguing over the best way to shoot the scene of an armed, hostile takeover of a business tower. While their work seemed interesting, Jasper was able to stomach approximately two minutes of the stars' vapid and self-serving banter before reaching for the remote.

The TV registered a channel change, but the same program continued to display. Perhaps it was popular enough to run concurrently on two different networks, but not such that it would retain Jasper's interest. He pressed the remote control's rubber buttons, intent to get away from this tripe.

He pressed the button, again and again. Nothing. Every channel that Jasper had tried to select carried the same program. "I never liked soap operas anyway," Jasper reminded himself as he thumbed the Power button on his remote.

Nothing happened.. at least, nothing that Jasper expected to happen actually transpired. Instead of sending away the digital screen, something else occurred that made his skin crawl. All of the actors turned to face him now, and they were wearing animal masks. The men and women parted at the center of the group, allowing their director to step forward and raise his megaphone in Jasper's direction. Oddly enough, this director had a similar size profile as the target of his attentions. He was also wearing a black horse mask.

The director's voice bellowed through the television into Jasper's room. "That's a shame. You're living in one right now!" At that moment, the walls of Jasper's apartment were lifted away as if they were set pieces being rearranged within a studio.

He was now surrounded by these animal-masked actors and their paymaster, save for one pig-masked studio hand. That person was occupied with removing the set props, including Jasper's breakfast tray. The gathered actors leered over him in a strangely familiar way, though Jasper was unable to determine why this display had provoked such intuitive feelings.

"If you think you can do better, why don't you call the shots?" Though the director had not introduced himself, Jasper already recognized his identity. The young man took a deep breath through his nostrils as he stepped forward to take the megaphone from Schwarzpferd.

"Your proposal is acceptable."

A short-lived shriek of panic marked the end of Jasper's nightmare. He awoke in his hospital bed with a start, then reached a hand to his bandaged forehead. The memories of what had transpired earlier that day slowly began to return, ferried on the back of a dull headache that would be suppressed only with additional rest.

Her fingers had just touched the door knob when she heard a man scream from inside the room. Ami's eyes flashed. Could it be a monster?  Her years as a sailor soldier had made her extremely sensitive to noises and reactions, knowing that the possibility of evil forces always lurked behind the veneer of "normal life". She silently turned the handle and opened the door just enough to determine if she would need to transform into Sailor Mercury.

Inside, it was a normal hospital room. No strange creature that vaguely resembled a humanoid form crossed with a variety of medical machinery. She sighed with relief, then straightened up to knock on the door.

"Pardon me," she said, gently opening the door all the way and stepping inside. "May I come in? My name is Ami Mizuno. I was there when you were injured at the shrine."

Streaks of sweltering heat and frigid cold raced through Jasper's bloodstream as he started to fully become conscious, taking in the implications of where he was located. This was clearly not a hotel. Instead of being designed exclusively for comfort, this structure also had to juggle the concerns of a sterile and clean environment.

This is a hospital. His eyes snapped towards the now-opening door, and subconscious instincts were preparing the tense muscles of his barely-clothed body to anticipate a flight-or-fight scenario.

The blue-haired schoolgirl that had dispelled the tension at Sendai Hill was there. What a strange gesture of kindness! They were not acquainted with one another prior to Jasper's visit, and he had ended up leaving before any of the girls could have introduced themselves. It was as if he was intruding on their meeting.

"Come on in," Jasper replied as he leaned back into a sitting position. Though he was without a shirt, he didn't feel embarrassed to receive a female visitor. No, he was much more curious as to why she'd choose to see him of all people.

"I'm not callous enough to turn down a visitor, especially someone like yourself."


From within Usagi's room, Luna stretched out on the comfortable little perch she had made on the side of the teenager's pillows. It had taken some trial and error to find just the right place; a few unfortunate incidents had occurred when Usagi had leaped into her bed without first looking for a certain sleeping moon kitty.

Now that she was finished napping, Luna rubbed up against her friend to signal for attention. "Usagi-chan, how are you feeling?"

Ami was thankful to be welcomed inside instead of turned away. Her plan depended on her ability to gain access to places she didn't necessarily belong, but she lacked Usagi's bravado to rush into places or the power to assume a disguise. There was always a creeping fear in the back of her mind that she might need to use some kind of alternative plan, so it was nice to have that concern quieted for the moment. She averted her eyes slightly when she saw that he was not wearing a shirt or hospital gown. Ami was careful to keep her eyes focused on his face instead. A part of her was wondering if she could see any hint of the dangers that Luna had mentioned.

"I brought some flowers. How are you feeling?" she asked, pausing to unwrap the bundle and arrange the bouquet in a small vase. Even if he was to be discharged soon, it would look nice in the room and could be discarded or retained as he chose. She knew from experience that hospital rooms could seem dreary and impersonal. Her keen eyes observed that there were no similar tokens from others; her suspicion that he would have few friends or relatives here seemed correct at least on the surface.

"It was so shocking to hear that a mob attacked you. Did you know them?"

She hoped the question sounded more innocent than she felt asking it.

"I have a mild headache," Jasper casually answered as he pressed the fingertips of his right hand to the point of injury. It was still tender, but he didn't feel any deformations or other damage in the underlying tissue and bone. Through the gaps of his fingers, Jasper's right eye followed Ami as she moved to arrange the flowers and add some measure of comfort to his otherwise spartan room.

"None of them sounded familiar at all, not even the pipe-toting porker who thought himself the champion of the prole." A measure of bitterness laced Jasper's words as he recalled the events leading up to the initial attack.

Hmm, that was interesting. He sounded sincere enough in his answer. She had been hoping that there was something about the attack Jasper might have been privy to or involved in, considering that the pig-masked hooligan seemed particularly bent on causing specific harm to this man. There was always the chance that he was just covering up deeper involvement, but at the moment she was inclined to accept his response as truthful enough. That still left a bevy of unanswered questions regarding the incident at the shrine.

"You seemed almost like you were looking for someone or something, when I saw you at the Hikawa Shrine," she commented, trying to make the statement sound natural and easy. "Was that the case? Did you find what you were looking for?"

She hoped it wouldn't cause him to dwell on the altercation with Rei, but that was possible. Ami really wanted to know something about him. Just enough to get a better sense of why an agent of the Dark Kingdom would be in Tokyo after that force had been defeated. She hadn't really thought of what might have happened to members of that organization after Beryl was defeated. Ami supposed someone with that kind of affiliation couldn't exactly retire to the tropics... or did they? It wasn't something she would be familiar with.

Jasper had to wonder just what it was that Ami found so interesting about the attack, and by extension, himself. Was she admiring his capability for self defense? He wasn't so sure that could be the case. In her first few moments of conversation, Mizuno-san had appeared to be cognizant of not only the attack on Jasper, but perhaps his own motivations for visiting the shrine.

"No, I didn't find anything there.." Jasper's voiced softened, but some bitter grapes had lingered in his speech. "I was hoping to make sense of a dream I had about a week ago, but I offended your miko friend in the process."

The young man shook his head briefly, then turned to face Ami with conviction. His voice started quiet, slowly rising in volume to project the inner confidence that marked his willingness to take on any strange new puzzle or conflict.

"Once that happened, I came to the conclusion that my problems are something that only I can address. I don't know if I was attacked for being rich or an expatriate, and ultimately I feel that the reasons are irrelevant."

He studied Ami's facial reactions, curious of her opinion. "If the Sailor Senshi are getting involved, I'm sure something even worse is happening right under our noses."

Ami now felt as though Rei's shooing of the man had been rather hasty. There was something about the way he referenced a dream that made her wonder if the sacred flames could have lent further explanation to the situation at large. Although it could be "just a dream" or something completely unrelated to the strange goings on in Tokyo lately, there was a part of her that thought it seemed more likely that this person was involved in some way, dreams and all. That may just have been part of a blind hope to find answers where there were none. She wasn't sure this would be a topic that Rei would be willing to revisit; whatever elements of the Dark Kingdom the shrine maiden had felt caused an incredibly strong reaction. Even calm and careful Ami didn't want to risk making the situation turn sour.

She tried to keep her expression neutral when he mentioned the sailor soldiers. She allowed her eyes to widen just a bit, as if confused to hear someone speak of them, but then softened into a slight smile.

"You're probably right," she said, careful with her tone. "They seem to handle situations more dire than simple vandalism. That sort of task belongs to law enforcement."

She still felt a nagging feeling that this wasn't something limited to the police, although it may have seemed to be that kind of issue on the surface. The image of those strange masks, and the man wearing the pig-shaped one... it made her feel uneasy. She hoped they would learn more information soon. It seemed like there was little else she would be able to learn from Jasper Franklin without asking him directly about the Dark Kingdom--something she could not do as Ami Mizuno.

"Well, you probably need more rest. I hope you are fully healed soon. I'm sorry that you were a victim of a senseless attack."

She was ready to make a polite exit, unless something else stopped her. Her mind thought of Usagi's proposed day at the water park. It would be nice to relax with the other girls. She still hadn't replied to acknowledge that she would go next weekend, but of course she would. She had a few library books that she could read during the outing. Before that, though, she thought it would make sense to regroup with Luna and perhaps the other sailor soldiers, to see what the others had learned or might have insight on.

"I just grabbed something I thought was interesting..." Minako said to Rei, whispering back. "I'll show you guys later after the cops are gone."
_____________________________________________________________________

Over the next few days, Minako took her evidence home and flipped through the whole book. And she was....pretty unsatisfied. She had expected some kind of evil well detailed plans noted, but it was just a phone salesman's handbook. How boring. It was definitely interesting that Jasper wrote the entire thing himself, in English and Japanese. And she did get an address for a business, which she assumed Jasper worked at. This Home Phone company sounded like a good place for an investigation...

But before she did any PI work, Minako should tell the other girls. Just then her communicator rang, and she read Usagi's invitation. She grinned at the water park idea. She had just gotten a new swimsuit too, but...this mob business came first. She sent Usagi a message back saying that she would be there, and then called Rei. If there were any evil vibes around this book, Minako wanted to know before she ran into a hornet's nest.

"Come on Rei, pick up..." she mumbled.
