Today was the day of earth's in, or so Jadeite hoped. He wanted the people to pay for how they treated the world. The earth provides their needs and they abuse it. Earth has no defense and can't fight back against their destruction on her. They were earth's last defense and would risk all to save her. Even if it meant whipping out the human population. He knew it was going to be hard fighting with Rei. She would not lie down and take it she would fight. Jadeite laughed to himself bitterly knowing that one of them would probably die. The raven-haired girl struck a cord in his heart and he needed her. Kunzite had told them that the girls would be the keys to saving the people, and they were a threat. Zoicite and Kunzite had fought when Zoicite suggested killing Minako. He had finally gotten them to calm down enough to get a plan together.
They had gathered enough power to find Nephrite and would attack them soon. He just wanted to hold Rei in his arms, and look where it got him. He truly hoped her would die, before facing her again. But the fates had another plan.
Russet had told Rei to go to sleep. She knew the girl was already stressed and did not wish to burden her anymore. She decided to go and talk to Azure and see if he remembered her. She hoped that he did remember her. After all they were once lovers and friends. She blushed and continued to walk toward his room. Rei had given her a robe since the girls clothes were too small for her ahem adult features. Russet walked toward the open door and peaked inside.
She caught sight of her first and only love. She knew he was in a child's body, but he was still the man she had fallen for. She walked up and lay beside him. She knew this moment would only last for awhile, but she wanted to savor it forever. He snuggled into her and murmured in his dreams. She remembered the times when she would wake up in his arms after long nights. Now she would be there for him like he was always there when she needed him.
She brushed the white stands on top of his head with her fingers as the sun rose into the air. She knew that this would be the day of prophecy that the goddess Selene had told her about. She was ready for it, but wished there was another way out. She sat there holding Azure at the break of dawn.
Makoto got up early so she could avoid Nephrite. He confused her so much and her head was spinning. Something in her jumped for joy everytime she saw his face and the other side wanted to hide from him. She had been going with the latter side, but she was still draw to him. Everything he did made her giddy and she could not control herself.
She went to the bathroom to freshen up and then put on some brown riding pants with a frilly lace top. She liked the pants, but the top was too dressy, but she could not walk around in a nightgown. She put on some boots and went into the kitchen.
Before she knew it she was cooking. It always cleared her mind and she could be at peace while doing it. She made all sorts of dishes like eggs and jam. They were pretty unusual, but no one had ever told her that they were anything less than perfect. She did not notice the male enter the room till he reached a hand out toward some bread. Makoto who was making some bacon slapped his hand with a fork. Nephrite yelped and grabbed his red hand. Makoto grinned and continued to cook. Nephrite sat in a chair with his arms crossed and bottom lip poked out.
"You should have better manners Nephrite." Makoto said and Nephrite mumbled to himself. Makoto glared at him and he stopped and continued to pout. Makoto wanted to laugh but held it in. He knew how to make her happy even if he was the problem. She finished up the bacon and started to put everything on the table. Nephrite got up to help her and once it was done there was silence. Nephrite walked up to Makoto and started to ask her a question, before he was interrupted by a shriek.
Nephrite quickly grabbed Makoto's hand and ran down the hall. He could tell it was Ami and hoped he was not to late. In the end he had to carry Makoto by the waist, because she was slow. Makoto protested, but he did not care. He had to get to Ami and fast.
Ami lay in bed tossing and turning as she dreamed. The covers had fallen off the bed and pillows on the floor. Her face had lines of worry and she was crying. She started to shiver then jumped up. There she sat as the sweat dried on her rapidly cooling face. Her breath was labored as she took in huge gulps of air. She whipped the tears from her eyes and curled into a ball.
She had a terrible dream and it had shaken her to the core. Everyone was dying and all she could do was watch. It was horrible and she wished she could of dome something. It was like no one could see her, but when one touched her they would look at her and run. It was like she was some ghost that could only be seen if she was touched. She kept running till she saw herself in a shop window. She gasped at what she saw it was as if she was another person.
Ami's thoughts were interrupted when she heard a soft creek. She looked at the window and gasped. There stood Zoicite in the pale moonlight. He had not changed much and her heart did flip-flops. He looked strait at her and lime met sapphire. She tried to move away or yell just something. But she could not she watched in a trance as he moved toward her. He could have easily been a woman if he wanted to, but something about him stated he was male. It was like an aura or something that is plain knowledge like 1+1=2. She looked at the tight black leather on his long legs as he saunted over to her. He wore a long sleeved shirt with silver frills here and there.
He walked to her bed and started to crawl. He never looked away from her as he got closer and closer to her. She was telling her body to move, but it wouldn't. He made it over to her and grinned lazily at her. He eased her body up against him and leaned over to her face. His hot breath against her ear excited her and scared her at the same time. He chuckled as he felt her pulse raising and her chest heave.
"You know Ami this is the time you scream." Zoicite said and kissed her ear. Ami jerked back and blinked. She opened her mouth and screamed.
Kunzite flew into Jadeite's room in a rage. He looked at the smaller man with melting silver eyes. Jadeite took a step back, but Kunzite came forward. He was in demon form and that was not a very good sign. He could hear the soft steps of Mianko hurrying after him. Kunzite grabbed him by the neck and hurled him into the air,
"WHERE IS HE?!" Kunzite yelled and Minako fell beside the door. His voice echoed and the ground shook. Jadeite looked at him bewildered wondering what he was talking about. Kunzite looked like he was about to attack again, but Minako stopped him.
"Who the hell is he!?" Jadeite asked as he started to get up from the ground. The anger left Kunzite's eyes as swift as he broke the door down. Now he just looked tiered. Minako held him, but only reached up to his thigh. Kunzite gradually started to shrink till he was a head taller than Minako as she murmured soft nothings into his ear.
"Zoicite is gone and I think he will ruin it all. Everything will go to waist if he there." Kunzite said and softly pulled away from Minako. Jadeite groaned to himself. He should have known this was coming. Zoicite was always trying to show that he was the greatest of them all. But this time it may be fatal, because if Nephrite doesn't kill him Kunzite will. The two 'brothers' quickly left the room with Mianko trailing behind. The war had started and point one was to Nephrite.
Azurewoke up into a soft embrace of a woman. He snuggled into the embrace until he realized it was not suppose to be there. He moved his head up to see a beautiful woman with red hair and eyes. She was looking out a window and had not noticed he had awoken yet. He tried to get out of her arms unnoticed, but she turned and saw him. Azure looked into her ruby colored eyes and felt something that he had been missing for quite some time. It was as if he should know who this woman was. He tried to remember, but something was holding him back.
"Hi darling long time no see." She said and smiled at him she bent down to kiss him, but stopped. It was as if something pained her and he could see it in her eyes. Azure could see glimpses of her, but every time he caught glimpse of her they faded away.
"How do I know you?" He asked in a quiet voice. He knew she was part of his past, but he wanted to know how. Was she part of the curse that ran through his veins. Could she cure it? He did not know, but wanted to learn as much as he could about her.
Ruby only smiled at him in response. She wanted so much to kiss him and to be held by him again. She wanted him to remember that they were going to be married and were to help the shitennou overcome there destiny. She looked into those cold blue eyes and fell again. Even if he was not the same she still loved him deeply.
She touched her small hand to his forehead and his eyes widened. He felt the pieces of the puzzle come together. A blue light took over his body and he remembered.
Nephrite slid to a halt with Makoto by his side. It was quiet now and he wondered if he had dreamed it up. He heard a stifled moan and knew it was not Makoto. That was all it took and he opened the door. He heard Makoto gasped and looked to see Ami in Zoicite embrace. Her eyes outlined in green and she radiated the color to. Zoicite was smiling as he trailed kisses down her neck and she did not seem to care. But Nephrite knew better. He looked deep into her eyes and saw that she was scared and wanted him to help her. He did not notice Zoicite's eyes lock onto Makoto's.
"So you have come Nephrite. I would ask you to join us, but I think I know the answer. Why do you chose to save this forsaken world when you could save the world from those who hurt it?" Zoicite asked Nephrite with large eyes enlarged with power. Nephrite let Makoto go, but held her against his body. His 'brothers', Rei, and himself could fight Zoicite's manipulation. Makoto, Ami, and Minako were defenseless against him.
"You have no right to decide that. Have you noticed Ami is apart of this earth. Do you want her dead as well. All you do is think of yourself Zoicite. Think of others for a change." Nephrite yelled and Makoto listened. She was tired of being clue less and wanted to figure everything out. Zoicite just toyed with Ami's short blue hair as they waited for his answer.
"you don't know." Zoicite whispered and Makoto and Nephrite had to strain to hear. He then looked up and yelled. "YOU DON'T UNDERSTAN! NONE OF YOU DO, DAMNIT. I WILL NEVER HURT AMI AND I HATE YOU ALL FUCKING TELLING ME I WILL. YOU, JADEITE, AND KUNZITE CAN GO TO HELL, BECAUSE I REFUSE TO PLAY THE NIEVE BROTHER ANYMORE." Zoicite yelled and Nephrite stepped back. He never knew Zoicite thought like that. The 'brothers' always thought he wanted to show he could be the best.
"I didn't know you felt that way." Nephrite said and Makoto held him. He looked like a little boy who lost his favorite toy. He looked so innocent and vulnerable that she would have killed anything that had ever caused him harm. "Forgive me Zoi." Nephrite said and Zoicite looked up. His eyes were slanted as he looked up at his 'brother' no his friend. Zoicite wanted to forgive him. He wanted a friend, but the people of the world had to be punished.
"I can't Nephrite I fear I have chosen my side." He said and moved away from Ami. He walked to the corner of the room to get away from her. He did not trust himself around the girl and did not want to hurt her. Nephrite understood and gathered Ami into his arms. They would meet again on the battlefield, but they had come to an understanding. They were still enemies, but they had come to an understanding.
'Male bonding at it's best, I guess.' Makoto thought to herself as she saw Zoicite disappear in a downpour of sakura blossoms. This time they swirled around him instead of thrashing. It was beautiful Makoto though. Nephrite shook her and held her close to him. Ami was small enough to be carried under one arm. So he held Makoto with the other.
"You know some of us may not leave together." Makoto said looking up into his rich chocolate eyes. He nodded and looked into her emerald forest. They fell into a deep kiss. Makoto could not resist she tried to hate him. She tried to think of life without him. She even tried to think of him with another woman. That had not turned out to well and she was seeing green for an hour of two. No matter what she did she loved him and nothing could change that.
Nephrite knew she had given in and was happy. He hoped he came out alive. At first he did not care, but now he had something to look forward to, something to love. He explored her mouth and she explored his. The kiss was as if they were searching each other for peace. They forgot everything that was going to happen or what was happening now. All they cared about was there coming together and finding heaven.
This time Nephrite broke away and Makoto groaned in protest. The man smiled at her. She would never be able to hide her emotions. If she did not express them they showed in her green eyes. She buried her face into his shoulder and took in his sent. He smelled of wet moss after morning's first dew. She found out that she liked the sent. It seemed to match him in every way.
"Love I think we should go now." Nephrite said and kissed her ear. Makoto only nodded and he carried the unconscious Ami and held her beside him. She knew that this would be a fight for her life, but it was all worth it. As long as Nephrite was by her side she could go on.
Kunzite landed outside the gates of Nephrites castle. He held Minako in his arms and Jadeite at his side. It had taken time and power to figure out where Nephrite hid. He used the stars to aid him when he his. He was the only one with the ability so it was hard to figure it out. He frowned when he thought of Zoicite. He was the strategist and it would have taken half the time if he were there. He made a mental note to punish him.
Jadeite was already walking to the castle. He was probably the strongest out of all of them, but was still short. He could also tell things by reading peoples eyes. It annoyed and scared him at how easily the man could figure him out. He followed after him through the broken door. Minako gasped, there was still so much she did not know about them. He just held her closer to him and entered. The first thing he saw was Rei standing in front of Jadeite.
The girl was really powerful for a priestess in training. She had her scrolls ready and was already chanting. He glared at the scrolls. Those things burned the skin of a demon and if they did not shift fast it would be a permanent mark. Minako was struggling against him and he looked down at her. She looked at Rei with hatred and that confused him. Did she really think she could take Rei on? He did teach her the basics in a fight, but the priestess was past her level and had magic. He tightened his grasp on her. He had no doubt that if Rei got a chance to strike them she would do just that. "Don't tell me you do not have Zoicite with you. That will make it so much easier on me." Rei said in a mocking tone. Jadeite knew she was trying to get to them, but Kunzite didn't. It made it even worse that Minako wanted a go at Rei as well. He jumped at Rei knocking her to the ground. He made sure he pined her arms so not to get hit by her scrolls. Rei just glared at him and may have never known he just saved her life.
"Go now Kunzite! This is my fight!" Jadeite yelled as he and Rei rolled across the floor. Kunzite looked hesitant, but the look on Jadeite's face told him he meant it. He did not like taking orders from the younger man, but he knew in this form he was the weakest. Especially with all of these emotions that clouded the younger mans eyes.
Much to Minako's grunts of protest he ran out the room. He did not look back at them. He knew this was Jadeites fight and he wished him the best.
When the light faded Azure stood. He was no longer the boy, but a full- grown man. His white hair had grown to his neck. His pale skin tone had a peach tone to it. His nose and lips were more defined. More elfin like in appearance. His eyes were now mere slants of Azure. He stood at about 6 feet and was looking at Ruby with intense blue eyes.
"Ruby." He whispered in a husky voice. She nodded and turned red all over. He did not seem to care or notice his clothes were now ripped to shreds. His gaze was locked on her and her alone. He moved toward her and never lost his gaze. He held her in a firm embrace and kissed her lips. It was not a long kiss or something pleasurable. It was just something to assure them both they were together. Just as fast as his lips came they left. He stood back and rapped the sheets around his waist. He nodded to her and left in a flash of blue.
She knew he was going after Kunzite and Minako who where on there way to Makoto, Nephrite and Ami. She had to go to Zoicite, Jadeite, and Rei. She hoped it was not to late and they could still be together. She did not wish to harm any of the couples. She would try to make them remember and that was the best she could offer.
She ran out the door and to where she felt a clash of fire and water. She knew it was Rei and Jadeite. Out of all of the young lovers they were the most different. She pushed the door open and was shocked at what she saw. Jadeite was bleeding heavily, but refused to transform. Rei was bleeding, but looked more tired than Jadeite. They did not even notice her enter the room. She noticed small tears flowing out of Rei's eyes every time she hurt him. She saw the pain expressions on his face every time he saw her whimper or stumble.
"STOP!" Ruby yelled and they both stopped and turned to her. Jadeite looked sort of relived and pissed. She walked to both of them and Rei opened her mouth. Ruby shook her head, because she knew what was coming. She knew this was not her fight, but she had to stop this. She could not let the bond die. "Rei and Jadeite come to me." Ruby said in a demanding voice.
Jadeite was the first to come forward and then Rei. Ruby had to use her powers to influence their decisions a little. She held both of their hands and started to radiate a red glow. Jadeite tried to retreat, but she held on to his mind. She stood there letting their memories of the past return and slowly left in search of Zoicite.
A few seconds later they turned to each other and stared. Eyes showing love and fear. Jadeite slowly reached out to clasp her hand. And then they remembered their love.
Azure and Kunzite faced off. He had gotten to the man, before he met up with Zoicite and he insisted on fighting him. Minako looked off from behind a door glaring at him. He was still radiating blue and Kunzite knew it was him. Before everything turned bad they were really close to one another. He was still trying to convince Kunzite that he was not going to hurt him.
"I do not want to hurt you Kunzite. But if you refuse to listen to me I am afraid I will have to." Azure said and Kunzite still tried to strike him. Kunzite was fast and it was a struggle to sidestep his powerful fist. Azure threw small balls of blue energy at Kunzite. It was suppose to stun him, but Minako ran up. Azure groaned to himself. Now he understood why Zoicite had such distaste for the blond girl. She had just made things more difficult for him.
Kunzite glared at Azure before grabbing the shorter man by the neck. Azure struggled so he could touch the hand on his neck, but Kunzite was not having that. Kunzite was strangling him to death and there was nothing he could do. Of course he could easily kill him, but he did not want that.
Minako groaned and Kunzite turned to look at her. That was all Azure needed. He kicked Kunzite and touched the hand on his neck. Kunzite stumbled and fell. Azure fell on top of him, but did not let his hand go. Minako was crawling to him as fast as she could. Azure was struggling to get through to Kunzite. The man was refusing to believe, but there was still hope. Minako reached them and Kunzite grabbed her hair. Minako screamed and Azure reached for her. Kunzite was having a bad reaction to his past and was hurting Minako. The blond reached out her hand to Azure so she could help. He smiled and grabbed her hand. Even though she seemed stupid and whinny at times she could really come through.
Minako started to ease Kunzite's mind with soft words of love. Azure smiled and put their hands together. He was sure Minako could handle herself from now on. She was remembering her power as love goddess and it was easing the process. Kunzite's mind was slowly becoming less crowded. He let them be and started to go to where Nephrite was.
His last and biggest challenge would be Ami and Zoicite. The man had become so bitter and different unlike his past self. He hoped that Ami could forgive and help him. He had taken so many things away from her. From taking her away from home to losing her innocents.
He ran down the hall leaving Minako to comfort a crying Kunzite. He looked back and smiled at them. Kunzite was a strong man, but even he had to cry some times.
Ruby was following Zoicite silently. She was waiting for Azure to show up with Ami. He was currently destroying the garden. He did not seem to care at the moment what he was doing. He looked like a little boy who wanted to eat candy before dinner. He did not notice her, but noticed the blue haired girl who was in another man's arm.
Azure held the girl in his arms. She was blinking rapidly and her eyes were slowly focusing on Zoicite. She looked at him lovingly. She was amazed at how easily these girls forgave. After all their loves killed them in the past. They are reborn and there is a huge chance it could happen again. Ami told Azure to put her down. He did, but looked hesitant in doing so. She looked at Zoicite and he stared at her,
Azure took this time to leave and help Makoto and Nephrite. She did want to see what was happening with them, but she did not want the blue haired girl getting hurt. She watched as Ami took steps forward and Zoicite took steps back. It would have been funny if this was not a matter of life and death.
"Zoicite please touch me." Ami said and Zoicite looked at her. His green eyes were wide and Ruby was sure hers were to. She had never thought she would hear the ice princess speck so bluntly. Zoicite moved toward Ami and kissed her. It was a simple kiss no body parts touching. Just a chaste kiss as if they were both testing boundaries. Well that's how it would seem.
She could see Ami was trying to get Zoicite to see. They were not something real close in the past, but there was something. They were soul mates and their hearts were for each other. Ruby saw Zoicite struggle but knew he could not deny the bond. She turned to leave them. She hoped that they would work it out.
Nephrite held Makoto as she lay against him. Azure had given them all they needed to know about there past. He was still whispering sorry into his loves ear. She just continued so lay motionlessly. He started to kiss her temple and move to her neck. He hoped she was not upset with him. How would you feel if the love of your life betrayed AND killed you?
Makoto did not know what to think. This would give her a reason to hate Nephrite and never see him again, but she was not sure she wanted to. Maybe a while ago she would taken the easy way out, but not now. She wanted to be with him forever. She did not want something short termed like her parents and friends. She wanted something she could hold on to and know that the person could take care of her.
"Mako are you mad at me?" Nephrite asked and Makoto shook her head against his shoulder. She was not mad at all, just confused. Nephrite held her tighter when she shook her head no. The silence came back till Makoto felt water on her head. She looked up to see Nephrite crying. She saw her love crying for something beyond his control. He did kill her, but it was not under his control.
Makoto sat up and licked the salty tears off of his face. He looked stunned at her actions. He had never thought she was capable of showing this kind of affection. Once she was done with every tear was gone Makoto started to kiss his face. It was as if the all the confusion and pain had faded away. Now it was getting more sexual and arousing to Nephrite.
Makoto moved away and straddled his hips. After all they had made it across the hall to Mako's room. She bent down and locked lips with his. Their tongues explored each others frantically. They forgot about all the fighting that could be going on. All that mattered now was letting out their desires for one another.
Nephrite flipped Makoto onto her back and started to undo the buttons to her shirt. Makoto's breath grew labored from the newfound passion. Nephrite was now sucking on her red neck. Her moans only peaked his arousal. He pulled the shirt off her long arms. Makoto tried to pull down the pants that were on his hips. He moved away so she couldn't. He could tell that Makoto was eager for him to touch her and vice versa. He complied with her every wish in demand. After all they had all the time in the world.
Azure held Ruby in his arms. She had gone around to make sure everyone was all right. She turned red when she went to see Kunzite and Minako. They were in a passionate embrace in the hall. Azure said he found the same this with Nephrite and Makoto. She was glad everyone was happy. Even though Zoicite and Ami had a ways to go.
She knew that they would die as all people do, but they were a unique group. She was sure they would been up again in another lifetime. Lets just say a little rabbit told her so.
