Rei sat on her knees in the fire-reading room, her hands making the ritual symbols she had made so many times in the past. The red shade of her priestess robe reflected the great fire's light, and Rei was suddenly at peace. Her muscles relaxed and her eyes closed, opening herself to the fire's will.

Her eyes opened, revealing the fire in her violet irises. Images danced before her eyes, entering her mind and showing her what she needed to see. Her body went rigid as her mind processed the images, storing them so that she could remember them and replay them for her fellow senshi. The vision ended, and Rei bent her back forward so that her head almost touched the ground.

"Thank you," she said, standing and leaving the room. Without any further hesitation, Rei rushed to her bedroom to tell the others what she saw.

Upon arriving, she saw Kaede had woken up. It looked like Luna was getting ready to relay some important information, too. "The reading was successful. But it doesn't make much sense to me," Rei said, sitting down beside Usagi.

Mamoru was walking back to his building with some groceries for the day. The previous evening, he had seen news reports of the attack in the subway station and the briefcase explosion at Crown Arcade, both linked to the strange man in a black horse mask. His beloved Usako had called to tell him what happened and that thankfully no one at Crown Arcade had been injured. 

She had told him of the strange and difficult questions Schwarzpferd had posed to her during the fight, and the willingness to use human weapons while strangely possessing abilities beyond that of normal humans. A Senshi meeting was also planned for the next day, unsurprisingly, and he knew he'd hear all the details soon enough.


His mind mulled over these topics as he walked past the towering skyscrapers of the business district. As his head turned skyward, he was struck by a strange vision of a dark structure not unlike it's neighboring buildings, yet somehow...detached...from the corporeal forms of the other office buildings. A strange phrase ran through his mind with the vision. "To lay claim to heaven, you must first conquer hell."

What on Earth could this mean? The vision troubled him and he hurried home faster, repeating the quote to himself in an effort to remember. He had learned that visions like this were rarely nothing, and that keeping such vision from Usako and the other Senshi in the past had only given enemies the upper hand. As soon as he reached his building and climbed to his apartment, he called Hikawa Shrine in an effort to inform the others.

Kaede blinked, looked at Luna and nodded. She would fight if she had to, especially if it meant being closer to her idol.

But then she realized she was in the presence of a talking cat.

"WHOAH! YOU'RE TALKING! HOW DO YOU DO THAT?!" she exclaimed and flailed her arms about. "Do you know about this, Sailor Moon?"

Rei entered the room and Kaede recognized her immediately. It was her senpai from T*A Academy! She had never talked to her personally, but she admired her for her stunning beauty. Did this girl somehow know Sailor Moon?

"Senpai! Is this your shrine? Thank you for having me here. Also, this cat just talked."

She's going to be a handful..

Luna groaned inwardly and shook her head. Kaede reminded her of Usagi when she first began to oppose the Dark Kingdom's minions, inexperienced and mostly innocent. When Rei arrived to describe what she saw during her fire reading, Luna's eyes widened. "Rei-chan, is this right? You saw not only Schwarzpferd, but his driver and a third man with a pig mask. That's not good at all.

The feline paced around the three girls before leaping up to Rei's bed. In this way, she could address them at eye level - not as their leader, but as an equal. "I'll start with the most recent events. Before we got to the Crown, Schwarzpferd incinerated a large sum of money in full public view."

She shifted her body to stand upright, addressing the senshi with an inquisitive tone of voice. "But where did he get this money? Usagi, do you remember the police that we saw outside of the subway station?" Luna paused, allowing enough time for her partner to recall the Metro closing. "I learned that Schwarzpferd had attacked a group of men there before leaving. He took a briefcase that was in their possession.."

Luna shivered. Something distasteful was on the tip of her tongue, and it pained her to consider the implications. The very last thing she wanted to happen was for the senshi to get mixed up in the criminal activies of other humans.

Usagi giggled at Kaede. She was funny, and different from anyone else she had met before. The blonde teen instantly took a liking to their new team member, despite not knowing much about her. They were a lot alike, even though Usagi may be slightly more mature, as ridiculous as that sounded.

"Yeah, but the hard part is getting her to shut up," Usagi whispered in Kaede's ear. She glanced at Luna, making sure the cat didn't hear her, before sitting up straight again. Rei entered the room, causing Usagi to focus more on their enemy than on making fun of Luna.

She listened intently as Rei explained her vision, then turned to Luna as the cat spoke. "Yeah, I remember," she said. "Do you think that was the briefcase with all of the money in it? Why would someone be carrying around a dumb briefcase full of money? That's just asking for robbbery."

Chibiusa sat on the porch outside the living room where the meeting was being hel with her knees pulled up to her chest. Usagi and Luna hadn't had much choice in bring her along to Rei's shrine with them. Neither on of them had been too enthusiastic about her joining in on the discussion, but that still wouldn't keep her from at least listening in.

Even if she hadn't been able to contribute to the fight, she was still a Sailor Senshi and Schwarzpferd had put her two friends in danger with his strange stunt of burning money so she still wanted to know whatever information Luna had found out about him.

She listened intently for what Luna had to say, but Kaede had awoken, and quite loudly at that, before the Mao had had a chance to speak. 

Chibiusa couldn't help but wince slightly in much the way Luna had wanted to at the new girl's alarming amount of enthusiasm. She really was just like another Usagi, but maybe this was a blessing in disguise. After all, there was always a chance this new Senshi might treat her with a bit more respect that her future Mother and with someone who was seemingly even newer to fighting than she was it might allow her more of an opportunity to prove herself...

Suddenly, the phone rang inside, causing Chibiusa to sit up straighter and turn her head to listen.

Luna steeled herself, then spoke forward. Her friends and champions, the Sailor Guardians, experienced so many things in the short span of two years. They were not the same girls from two years ago, but their new enemy was an enigma in himself. If he possessed supernatural powers, why would he resort to using human weapons? And why did he smell so familiar?

"They had criminal ties, Usagi-chan. Their style of dress, the hidden tattoos; I'm sure that those men are linked with the mob. I noticed that the detective who stopped you was walking on eggshells while he gathered information."

Luna reached her paws beneath Rei's pillow, dragging out the front page of a newspaper dating back to May 23. "A few weeks before now, the major news channels were covering stories of people who have been assaulted and robbed by a fat man in a pig mask! He would take their wallets and purses.

"What's strange about that is they were all recovered within thirty meters of each occurance, and they were intact! No money or other personal effects were taken."

Pigman Strikes Again wrote:
A picture of a fancy sports car in a repair shop covers the front page. A fire axe, swung by arms with inhuman strength, has punched directly through the vehicle's hood and several inches into the engine block.

"I must 'axe' if your vehicle is ready for inspection."

The feline confidant watched her charges closely, letting them read and digest the tabloid-esque reporting before she continued. "The Pigman has not been sighted since the kidnapping of Walter Burton. He was interviewed on national TV yesterday, and stated that man in a dog mask was responsible for the abduction. We s-

Luna's next words were cut short by the ringing phone.



Outside of the shrine, an older sports car rolled up to the stairway entrance. Its chrome surface gleamed in the pre-noon sunlight, looking every bit as new as the day it rolled off the assembly line. Even in this modern day, the car had an exotic allure. Was it the shiny tires, which were absent of dry rot and abrasion? Could it have been the complete lack of physical damage to the chassis, which was either restored or carefully maintained through the passage of time? Perhaps it was simply the fact that the vehicle was a major plot device in an American movie trilogy.

The left door raised upward to reveal a tall, brown-haired young man in a black business suit. He climbed out of the vehicle, raising a hand to his eyes as he gazed up at the torii gate leading into the shrine.

Jasper began to climb the stairs at a steady pace, moving with purpose. Two long years had passed since he walked out on his previous job, and it took a great deal of work for him to restabilize. He was about to embark on a lucrative career in the telecommunications industry, one that would provide him with even more capital to invest towards a bright and promising future.

Why, then, did he feel like he was teetering on the edge of a cliff?

Kaede's face curled into a cute grin when Usagi made her quip toward Luna. Still, how cool was it to have a talking cat? Where could she get one? She had no idea about Chibi-usa, but she would probably be stunned to know that she was from the future.

As Luna spoke of the dangers they faced, she couldn't help but wonder about the masked man they had faced. She had never faced an opponent who wasn't simply defeated by her vines.

"Do you guys usually face enemies this hard?" she asked. "These guys are really tough."

What would she think of the Dark Kingdom or any of the other opponents they had faced? It was clear she was a total newbie.

Minako ran up Sendai Hill towards Hikawa Shrine, cursing herself for being late for the meeting. After the strange events at the Crown Arcade, Minako had gotten a call from the others about what happened, and they had agreed to met up the next day to discuss it.

It figures that the one day she decided to actually do her homework instead of go out, a crazy guy with an animal mask burns a suitcase of money and fires a flare gun around. She was happy no one had been injured, but she still wished she was there to get a shot at him. It'd been a long while since she had gone up against regular crime instead of some evil magic plot with monsters. After hearing all the details, Minako started researching to see if she could dig up anything else about masked men committing crimes. She was the leader of the team after all, so she might as well be prepared.

That same day, a suitcase had been stolen by a man matching the horse mask description of Schwarzpferd, and another incident involved a man in a dog mask kidnapping someone named Walter Burton. And then there was the series of street thefts from a pig masked man with an axe. Just how were they all connected? Were they part of some odd Yakuza sect?

Minako stopped at the bottom of the shrine steps, seeing a well maintained classic looking sports car carefully parked on the side of the road. Was the shrine being visited by a visitor with expensive taste? Either that or Rei's grandfather decided to splurge on a vehicle in his old age. Turning away, Minako started going up the multiple sets of stairs.

"When are they gonna install an elevator or a ramp or something?" she said under her breath. On the way, Minako passed up a businessman she didn't recognize. Her eyes lingered on his face for a few moments, and then she was ahead of him. Well, whoever he was, he was pretty attractive.

After stopping to catch her breath at the top of the stairs, Minako ducked into the and slid open the door to their "official" meeting room. AKA Rei's bedroom.

"Sorry I'm late, guys. I got caught up in this article"- she then realized that Kaede was sitting there too. "Uh, is this the new girl?" Minako asked, now feeling subconscious about how unprofessional she probably looked. She hadn't seen Sailor Makemake in action herself, but apparently a new senshi had stepped in to help yesterday.

Chibiusa let out a small huff as Usagi and Kaede continued talking.. They seemed to be getting along well enough, but if they continued chattering for too long, Luna would never be able to say her piece. When the feline guardian was finally able to spaak and after Minako had rushed into the shrine past her, Chibiusa leaned in in closer to the door so that her ear was practically pressed against it and she furrowed her brow to better hear.

Unfortunately, Luna had not been able to say much before Minako had interrupted her. That was when another sound suddenly caught the ears of the future princess; it was the sound of footsteps approaching the temple. By the time she turned her head to address the sound, the formally-dressed man was already close enough to have clearly seen her eavesdropping and, worse, seemed to be staring at her because of it. 

She managed to save herself from letting out a yelp and giving herself away to the others inside, but her jaw still hung open awkwardly for a moment before she finally managed to speak.

"Uh... I'm sorry, but the Shrine is closed right now. If you've come here to get a charm or a fortune you'll have to try again later..." she said sheepishly.

There's a quiet and mysterious beauty surrounding this place.

Jasper arrived in the shrine courtyard, taking it upon himself to examine the area. It was making him nostalgic; only a few years ago, his direct supervisor had targeted this area for an illegal scheme that was secret to Jasper in all regards except for location. It was during that time, as a ranking officer in the Dark Kingdom, Jasper had surveyed this district to collect bus routes and population statistics in order to further Jadeite's energy harvesting schemes.

Today, Jasper came to the shrine for a significantly less sinister purpose. He wanted to have his fortune read, to perhaps obtain some insight on whether or not he would be able to crawl out of the dark pit that he dug and dwelled in over the first twenty years of his life. He was so engrossed in his personal thoughts that he didn't register the presence of an attractive young blonde until a few seconds later.

Someone was just there? Damn it. Here he was, standing around like a dink in a daydream when he could simply locate the talented miko that looked over this sacred ground. Jasper dragged a hand over his face, and started searching again in earnest. 

It was at that point that he discovered another girl - significantly younger, perhaps approaching the later years of elementary education. From his perspective, this girl appeared to be pressing her ear against the door. Jasper's presence must have surprised her, for she turned to face him with a slackened jaw. Compared to other girls her age, it was a remarkable feat of composure.

"Closed? For the whole day?" Jasper raised a brow to the young pink-haired girl, eyeing her with a shrewd expression of mild amusement. "You don't seem to be dressed in the appropriate attire. Young lady, do you happen to know the caretakers of this shrine? I took the day off from work so that I could get a fortune reading."

Rei listened intently to Luna's words. From what she heard, it seemed like these troublemakers should be taken care of by law enforcement, not by the sailor senshi. But she couldn't forget about how their enemy had lived through her attacks. There was no way a regular human could do that. He wasn't human, so what was he? Alien? What were the intentions?

Minako walked in, and Rei braced herself for the reaction Kaede would give at Sailor V being in her presence.

Rei's body suddenly tensed. There was a new presence at the temple - a foreign one. One that didn't seem all too normal.

"Shhh," Rei said. Faint voices could be heard outside, and the priestess quickly stood. "Wait here. I'll be right back," she said, leaving the room. Outside, Chibiusa sat talking to a fairly attractive man in a suit. Crossing her arms over her chest, Rei's violet eyes narrowed at the man. "Excuse me, do you need something?"

The words that came out of Luna's mouth jumbled up in Usagi's mind. It was too much information coming at her all at once. Adding all of that to her already buzzing brain was giving her a headache.

"Well these guys are obviously criminals. Why haven't the police taken care of it? Are they, like, magical? Do they even have faces under those creepy masks?"

Usagi was waiting for an answer when Minako walked in, and already the teen felt better. Minako's presence always lifted up the tension in the air. "Hi, Minako-chan! This is Kaede - she helped us earlier today," Usagi said. 

Rei left the room, and it felt eerily quiet. Not even five seconds later, the phone rang. Usagi couldn't help but jump. The day's events had put her on edge.

Lunging, Usagi snatched the phone and brought it to her ear.

"H-Hello?"

"Magical?" Kaede asked. She wondered what Usagi meant. She had never fought anyone "magical" before. They had always been common criminals. Were Kaede and the other soldiers "magical" too? She had never really thought of where her powers came from.

Kaede's attitude brightened up when a new visitor arrived in the room. Her eyes twinkled brightly.

"Minako!" she repeated after Usagi. "I'm Kaede Morgan, second year at T*A Academy! Are you my senpai too? Are you... part of the team?"

The girl was extraordinarily excited. This all was very new to her. If Usagi was Sailor Moon, did that mean that Rei and Minako were also part of her superhero team? Kaede's heart began to race. Did this mean she could maybe join their team too?

Minako had expected to be lectured by Rei for her tardiness, or at least earn a glare, but something else had distracted the priestess. She was off the hook for now. As Rei left to go deal with whatever she had sensed, Minako turned her attention back to Kaede. She was a little younger then they were, and was very excitable judging by her reactions. She kind of reminded her of Usagi when they first met. That wasn't a bad thing though. 

Minako flashed a movie star smile at her, or at least what she pictured as one. Senpai. She liked the sound of that. It had a nice ring to it. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw Usagi jump to pick up the phone ringing. While Usagi was busy, she might as well entertain their guest.

"Yup! Nice to meet you Kaede-chan. You ever heard of Sailor Venus?" she asked, already anticipating the answer. She had kind of missed being thought of as cool after her fellow senshi's awe over Sailor V had worn off.

"Usako! I'm glad you answered," Mamoru said when he heard the voice of his beloved on the other end of the phone. He smiled at her warm response.

"I usually don't like to interrupt Senshi meetings, but I had a vision as I was returning to my apartment. It may be nothing, but the last time I tried to puzzle out a vision without you and the others...," he paused, remembering the pain he had caused her in the past, "it only delayed uncovering the enemy schemes. Would you like me to tell you over the phone? Or I can come to the Shrine and tell everyone if the meeting will last a while longer?"

Jasper studied the sudden appearance of the shrine priestess, his senses quickly registering her presence. She was studying him as well; small rumors of Rei's supernatural powers had been noted in Jasper's surveys of the past. Did he come off as a suspicious person? Was she clued in to his tumultuous aura, or did she simply resent him for appearing to be wealthy and successful?

Don't read too much into the first impression. You are strong! You can endure any heat that comes your way. Drawing a breath to recompose himself, Jasper extended his right hand to gesture towards Chibiusa. He smiled slightly in an effort to break the ice and put the two at ease.

"I was speaking with the young lady here just a moment ago, and I was informed that your beautiful shrine is temporarily closed.

Jasper's eyes lingered on Rei, intent on acquiring whatever it was he had sought. Though having not explicitly asked for a fortune reading or a charm, the man's aura freely spoke of his desire to Rei's psychic senses. "Were you planning to open later today?"

"Mamo-chan!" Usagi exclaimed, happy to hear her beloved's voice. "It's Mamo-chan!" she squealed to the others, as if they hadn't heard her say his name the first time. Smiling, Usagi turned her attention back to Mamoru's voice. "What's up?" she asked.

At the word "vision", Usagi froze. Mamoru's visions never meant good things. She felt a pang of sadness at the memory of her and Mamoru's break-up, but shoved the feeling away to remain focused on what he was telling her.

"Oh, um..." Usagi said, her eyes flitting to Minako and to the door Rei had just walked out of. "Come on over. I'm sure we all need to hear it. I'll see you soon."

Before waiting for a response, Usagi hung up the phone and met Luna's gaze. She hoped her cat didn't notice the small glimpse of sadness in her eyes, which she tried to cover with a smile. "Mamo-chan had a vision, and...he's coming over to tell us about it."

Rei didn't like the way this man was speaking. Call it being too cautious, but something about this man's word choice made Rei feel on edge. She never liked attractive men, anyway.

Her eyes were searing into the mysterious man's face as she tried to figure out his intentions. He seemed pretty determined to visit the shrine, but why?  

"I'm sorry, but we're closed for the day. You are more than welcome to pray in our outdoor sanctuary. Is there anything in specific you need?" the iciness in her voice was unmistakable, but Rei maintained her professionalism.

Luna's stern expression seemed to melt away upon Minako's arrival. Concerns of tardiness aside, she alone held the distinction of the most experience with fighting human criminals. That applied knowledge would go a long way towards protecting the inner senshi - especially their princess.

Luna then turned to meet Usagi's gaze as she spoke of Mamoru's pending arrival. He had a vision? While the senshi had yet to hear the details, it could only mean that an ill omen was looming over their heads. "As I was saying earlier, this isn't going to be an easy task. We still need to determine our enemy's motives, but until then we should attempt to capture those men and hand them over to the police."

At that moment, the black cat with the crescent mark padded to the edge of Rei's bed, facing Kaede with the intent of establishing eye contact. Impressed as she was with Makemake's bravery, she had gotten in over her head when standing up to Schwarzpferd on her own. She spoke with the words of a disciplinarian, but her eyes showed a very different emotion. She didn't want to sell the girl a dream of glorious heroics, nor did she want the young senshi to infer that from her speech. If Makemake was going to help them, she would need to accept the risks; Luna would not allow her to do that with anything less than full disclosure.

"Kaede.. we aren't doing this for reward or for fame, but for the safety of Earth and its people. No matter what happens, it is going to be dangerous. We have put our health and our very lives at stake to protect our world and ensure a peaceful future. Is that something you can accept?"



Was he really that suspicious?

Jasper didn't figure the priestess as someone who would be concerned with the notion of class struggles, and he had kept his nose clean for two whole years. Not once did he give any serious consideration to criminal activity as a viable means of making a living! While there were certain documents, proofs of residence, and other particulars that had to be addressed before he could assume an otherwise legitimate identity in Tokyo, he was happy to play the part of a hardworking telecom manager and part-time trader of commodities.

"I was interested in a fortune reading, but this clearly appears to be a bad time." He kept up a pleasant expression, but like the miko standing before him, Jasper was less than pleased with the response to his own query. Had there been a sheet of paper between the two, the young businessman's words would have rendered it into confetti.

"However, I will take up your offer for a few moments of prayer. That is all I need for now, thank you."

Usagi smiled reassuringly at Kaede, hoping that the gesture would give the younger girl some confidence and determination. Sailor Makemake would be a great addition to their team, judging by the attacks she had demonstrated during battle. Not to mention she was great moral support.

Nervously, Usagi looked over at the door to Rei's bedroom, wondering how Rei and Chibiusa were doing. Was there an enemy outside? Could a battle be going on without them even hearing? No, that's stupid. Of course they would hear it. 

So why was Rei taking so long? Usagi couldn't stand the curiosity. "Guys, we should check on Rei-chan. I'm getting worried," she said, standing and heading towards the door. Outside, she spotted Rei and Chibiusa facing a wealthy-looking man who was quite handsome. "What's going on?"

"SAILOR V."

Kaede squeaked and squealed as the revelation that Minako was Sailor Venus came to light. She kicked her feet rapidly and clutched her blanket tight. It was her! It was really her! She was as cool, if not cooler, than Sailor Moon! This was easily the best day of her life. It would never get any better than this.

"You're so cool, Sailor V! I can only dream of being as cool as you. Maybe I should change my name from Sailor Makemake to Sailor M! Then I'll be cool too! Oh, and can I have your autograph?"

Right on cue, Kaede pulled out an official Sailor V manga volume from her school bag placed on Rei's bed. But then the seriousness of the situation settled in when Luna addressed her personally. She tilted her head and smiled.

"So long as I get the check to face alongside Sailor Moon and Sailor V, I'm up for anything! I can do it so long as she's around. I've been working hard to catch criminals just so I can meet her! Well, and also for justice and all that."

She blinked as she heard talking from nearby.

"Ummm... am I OK to move now? It seems like people are talking outside. Are there more sailor scouts nearby? Can I meet them?"

Her eyes twinkled.

Minako couldn't help but grin at Kaede's excitement. It was always fun to meet a fan. 

"Of course I'll give you my autograph!" As Luna explained the situation to Kaede, Minako thought of ways to catch these masked men without seriously hurting them. They would have to stick with stunning and trapping attacks only, but the one man that confronted Sailor Moon and Mars seemed to brush of their magical abilities with his own. But he couldn't be strong enough to block three senshi at once, right? Even so, combined with whatever vision Mamoru had, they were definitely dealing with more than just humans.

Minako nodded and stood up again at Usagi's suggestion. Rei had been gone a long while... 

"We're not sure if whoever Rei is speaking to is harmless or not, how about you stay here for now? Make sure no one sneaks in while we're away!" She stepped out the door behind Usagi and saw the same man she had passed on the stairs on the way to the shrine. Just who was this guy, and what business did he have at the shrine? Minko could tell that neither Rei nor the admittedly attractive looking guy were very happy with each other, but he seemed to be giving up for the moment.

Luna nodded briefly to Kaede, seeing as that all of the girls had went outside to follow Rei. She hadn't heard any noises or other clamours associated with conflict, so everything seemed to be okay. But.. what if it wasn't? Was there an enemy at their door that was being quiet? Was Chibiusa a potential victim?! With concern for Usagi's future daughter, the black cat scampered up to the door to investigate.

Getting outside to look was a relatively simple matter; Luna's size was quite suited for things like brushing by human legs and. While maintaining her composure, Luna approached Chibiusa and brushed against the young girl. The feline bristled her hair and produced a low yowling from her throat, a display of irritation that was thankfully rare; it was something Usagi had only witnessed her doing when she had detected something not quite right.

Today was one of those days. If any of the senshi had followed Luna's eyes, they were not on Chibiusa - but towards the strange man speaking to Rei. 



A vague sense of danger and foreboding was creeping up into Jasper's stomach. There suddenly were a lot of eyes on his person; one pair had become two, and then five. Why would he feel so ill at ease when being confronted by civilians?

Jasper's eyes briefly shifted towards the new faces before returning to Rei. There was a pleasant young girl with twin blonde pigtails, and another blonde girl with a red bow. He had seen her earlier! It wouldn't be a stretch of the imagination to envision them as twin sisters. Unfortunately, meeting under these circumstances was embarrassing, and he had gotten off on the wrong foot with the shrine maiden.

The best thing he could do now was to save face by acquiescing to a short period of prayer before leaving the girls in peace.

The recent string of newsworthy events, all featuring perpetrators wearing animal masks, could not be a coincidence. That communications executive kidnapped by the dog-masked man... The robberies committed by the pig-masked thief--who did not appear to keep anything he stole from the victims...  The physical attack on the men in the subway and the subsequent very public explosion outside of the Crown Fruits Parlor, both acts of the horse-masked vandal... The very same one who challenged Sailor Moon and the other present sailor soldiers... These were the things Ami mused over as she made her way to the Hikawa Shrine.

All day, these thoughts distracted the blue-haired girl genius. Even at cram school she couldn't stop mulling over the bits of information she knew, wondering where the links formed. If the tutors had been less preoccupied with frantic students trying to avoid last-minute graduation and entrance exam disasters, they might have noticed that the quiet Mizuno seemed even quieter. As it was, Ami breezed through her lessons with only half a mind focused on them. Unfortunately, it seemed that sailor soldier business called once more.

Although there were plenty of crimes and other actions that the sailor soldiers left to the various law enforcement agencies, whatever this web might eventually unravel to display they could not ignore. Sailor Moon and the others fought against this man, whoever he might be, and he made it clear that he intended to fight them again.

What could his motivation be?

Her brown loafers shuffled against the stone steps as she climbed, keeping an even pace. There was something cathartic about the long walk up to the temple grounds. It wasn't enough to settle her unease for this, though. She ached for water--a long swim in a quiet pool sounded perfect right about now. Maybe later.

Blue eyes widened slightly to see the assembled group outside the shrine. Rei's expression and stance betrayed her tension, and Ami could see that the shrine maiden's edginess appeared to have something to do with the young man. Ami regarded him critically: tall, short brown hair, hazel eyes, and definitely foreign. Probably American. That, in and of itself, would not be enough to rustle Rei. Something else was going on.

She stepped forward and addressed her friends with a gentle smile, hoping to relieve some of the discomfort of this situation. She also extended a polite acknowledgement to the stranger, a slight bow of precisely the right angle, but her attention was on the other assembled girls.

"Thank you for being patient while I was at cram school," she said. "I hope you've begun the study session without me." It would always be a 'study session' in Ami's mind, even though they were soon approaching their break and most exams were completed... for now. She knew there would be more exams. And she also knew that 'study session' was less suspicious a phrase than 'sailor soldier meeting.'

The air around Rei and the male visitor had suddenly become intense, causing Chibiusa to maintain her silence. It was clear that there was something about this man that Rei did not like and she seemed to want him gone as soon possible, but the young girl couldn't figure out why even though she had felt a small amount of her own unease by his presence. Her unease had been from her own embarrassment, however, not anything the man had said or done.

Before she could say anything that might help ease the tension, Usagi and Minako had also stepped out into the porch, followed by Luna who had approached her in the manner of an ordinary cat. At the crescent-marked cat's nudge, Chibiusa lifted her arm and turned her body slightly to allow Luna to step out around her before she did something the future princess had never seen before. 

Luna did not seem to like this man being at the shrine, either.

Chibiusa scooped up the would-be pet cat her arms as if trying to comfort her as well as reassure the visitor she wasn't dangerous and stood up, casting a curious glance at her before returning her focus to the man in the suit with caution. Was he really someone who was dangerous?

Her face brightened slightly when Ami approached and seemed to do what she hadn't been able to by easing the tension somewhat. Now that the focus had shifted, she discreetly slipped back inside the shrine with Luna where she would be able to speak.

"Luna, what's going on?"

With a bed head to rival Usagi on her worst day, Kaede leaned in from the open doorway to inspect the situation. She peered at the group, though didn't say anything to intrude upon Sailor Moon and Sailor V, her ultimate idols. She instead just stared at them with the intensity of a thousand suns.

Who were these people? Was the one with the blue hair another sailor soldier? And what of the little girl? Was this just some random little girl or did she know their secret too? Who was the strange man who approached the shrine? Was he... TUXEDO MASK?

Kaede's eyes sparkled like disco lights as she continued wondering about these strange new people.

"Great! I'll be over shortly. See you soon Usako," he said before hearing the click of his beloved hanging up. 

Mamoru put his perishable groceries away in a flurry, leaving the rest to be stored when he got back, before putting his shoes back on and leaving once more. As he weaved through the city streets, he kept going over the details of his vision to himself. He didn't want to leave out anything that might be important. 

He happened to see the time on a building as he walked past. "Hmmm...Ami should be out of crams school by now, especially with a pending meeting. Having her there will be great help to try and discern what's happening."

"Yes, it is," Rei snapped, flames licking at her tone. There was no way she would give this guy a reading. Besides, she only did that on special occasions. Why did he have to come here, of all places? There were plenty of psychics throughout Tokyo. 

"I hope your prayers bring you peace," the priestess said, not even caring that there was no emotion behind her words. Feeling as if she had to be sure her point was across. "And seeing as we are closed, I do hope you don't plan on staying for too long."

In keeping with his attempt to present a clean image, Jasper returned the slight bow that was afforded to him by Ami. He didn't move to address the diligent young schoolgirl directly; his conversation with the fiery-tempered priestess was occupying the majority of his mental energy.

A brief expression of disappointment crossed Jasper's face, but perhaps he had simply come at the worst possible time. Her friend had just arrived, mentioning a study session. Was she concerned with entrance exams and other scholastic pressures? Given the culture that he was living in, that wasn't a great surprise; he had to undergo a similar crunch just to attain fluency with Japan's native language.

"I don't foresee that being a problem," came Jasper's reply. It was cool and dry, having taken upon a business-like tone befitting of his corporate attire; any previous warmth that he expressed had vanished on the wind. "Thank you for your time, and have a pleasant afternoon." He bowed to Rei with a similar gesture that Ami had given him, then turned away and walked towards the large torii marking the entrance to the shrine.



Luna calmed down once she was held in Chibiusa's comforting embrace, nuzzling her arms in appreciation.  Thank goodness for Ami-chan's timely arrival! It distracted Jasper long enough for the two to slip inside, undetected by the strange man.

A number of troubling possibilities ran through Luna's thoughts. Was the Dark Kingdom somehow still alive? The senshi didn't recognize it yet, but this man had claimed to work for them in the past. She had witnessed his power firsthand; Jasper had destroyed her doubts along with her first instinctive attack. But his parent organization was destroyed from the top down; she was sure of that. They should have no longer been a threat.

So why was that man standing at Rei's doorstep?

Luna remained in Chibiusa's arms for a few moments, quietly looking up to make eye contact with the pink-haired future princess. She finally broke her moment of silence, speaking with motherly concern for the young girl.

"Did you see that man do anything strange or suspicious? Did he attempt to speak with you?"
