The Fallen Leaves of Life
Chapter One: Fears, Tears and Deceit
The morning summer bouquet danced around the room like the fallen leaves being cradled by the affectionate winds. Effervescent green eyes unfocusedly blinked open awakened by the crisp morning air. The sixteen year old teen yawned, stretching her long and toned body. She then threw the sugar pink covers off her warm body, pulling herself up and swinging her legs to the side of her bed. She lifted her arms up stretching showing every curve of her feminine exterior that would make any man go wild. She got up shaking her head full of bountiful chestnut locks so that each fell into their natural place.
She walked over and pushed her bedroom door open walking into the kitchen only to be greeted but the Senshi of time herself, glumly sitting upon a bar stool.
"Ah! Oh my God Setsuna! Don't scare me like that! I was about ready to attack you!" Makoto Kino shouted laughingly but Setsuna just looked up sorrowfully giving her a small smile.
"Gomen Mako-Chan I didn't mean to startle you like that." Setsuna replied looking up into the middle senshis eyes.
Makoto looked at her confusingly knowing something was obviously wrong and took a seat next the woman.
"Hey Setsuna are you ok? You seem kinda… down… And no offence or anything but why are you in my kitchen at 7:30 in the morning?" Makoto asked her curious emerald eyes waiting for a response.
"None taken… Mako-Chan I am so sorry for what I am about to tell you… And if I told you could go back in time and change it I would but than that would be a lie." Setsuna answered looking down thinking of the best way to word the situation.
"Makoto all these years you have had a lived and endured a life without a family even your parents here died when you were of an early age… But all this time you have had a brother and I didn't know it… Well I did but I figured his village had killed him because a demon resided inside his frail little body and they probably would have killed you as well if I hadn't taken you away… I would have taken him too but Queen Selenity ordered me not to. Reasons unknown to me… You were only ten months old when he was born and that was the day I took you from him… You still had no mother or father but you have always had a brother… I didn't find out until yesterday that he was among the living has made quit an impact on his world… Makoto I am so sorry can you ever forgive my mistake?" Setsuna asked her beautiful crimson orbs pleading the young teen for forgiveness.
Makoto was in utter shock but answered.
"Of course I can forgive you Setsuna, but tell me…. Why did you take me away from him, what does he look like and can I finally meet him?" Makoto asked eyes beginning to dampen more than natural. The open window blowing her curls around as the silence became more and more prolonged as Setsuna cast her gaze once again to the floor while replying
"That's what I am here to tell you… I took you away because he resides in another dimension and we couldn't very well leave Sailor Jupiter in that world we needed her here. There was also a possibility of him killing you because of the curse overtaking him body. The only thing I can tell you about his is he looks nothing like you… To be honest if he looked like and acted like anybody it would be Usagi… So if you do go Usagi will be with you in some form… About you seeing him if you wish to meet him you will have to leave the others vulnerable for some time due to me not knowing the tie elapse. And most importantly there's a fifty percent chance that…" Setsuna paused as she looked like she was mentally fighting her self for the strength to finish her sentence. Setsuna then looked up sadly finishing.
"… There's a fifty percent chance that you won't be able to come back…" She quickly cast her eyes back to the floor not wanting to se the look of pain that had shot threw the girls body.
'Oh my God…" Makoto whispered covering her mouth in shock and fear.
It's protecting my queen which is my duty; or finding the life that I have always wanted… Makoto fought with herself in deep thought.
"I'm sorry to say I am going to need your answer by tomorrow morning, no later no sooner." Setsuna said breaking her away from her thoughts.
"Thank you Setsuna for telling this but it looks like I have to go and call an emergency meeting with the others please come to help me out… I'll need to know their thoughts on the subject as well as you." Makoto answered in a grateful manner smiling the best that she could.
"You are very welcome Makoto and you well dissever it. I must be going now I'll be at Reis when you arrive." Setsuna replied smiling and taking her leave. Makoto then hastily dashed toward the phone dialing at a hyper speed.
After making sure she had called everyone she quickly readied herself to go to Rei's.
While making her way up the many never ending steps Makoto could hear the commotion already. She sweat dropped upon hearing Rei's loud insult to Usagi who inter began bawling.
She thought for a minute and sighed if she were to leave these would be the little moments and memories she would miss. The only reason besides not being able to come back that worried her was the thought of going there for no reason such as he brother not being able to be found or if something happened to Usagi that she would never forgive herself for. She didn't know what to do that's why she was leaving it up to her fellow senshi. She already knew Usagi was going to tell her to leave.
That girl would give up anything to make someone happy even if it included her life. Makoto thought and she knew Rei felt the same way even if she did always poke fun and criticizes her she knew as well as everyone else did that they were more bonded than any of them were.
Her thoughts were scattered as she reached the top of the stairs hearing Usagis' shouts upon seeing her friend.
"Mako-Chan I'm so happy for you!" Usagi screamed happily hugging her taller friend, as Makoto hugged her back.
"Thanks Usagi but…"
Makoto looked up at Setsuna in confusion.
"They were threatening me…" She sweat dropped scratching the back of her head.
" Oh really and what could persuade the 'Oh Great and Fearless Senshi of Time' to give in dare I ask?" Makoto questioned, hiding her obvious grief.
"Oh um.. well-" Setsuna was cut off by Haruka popping out of nowhere holding a cockroach in front of Setsunas' face that had now turned a dark blue.
" This." Haruka smiled in triumph and Setsuna epped and hid behind Michiru.
"Y-yeah that could be it." She said quietly as she heard a few chuckles from behind her.
"Mako-Chan I think it's great that you've finally found your family." Ami answered in her quiet voice with a smile to match it.
"Thanks Ami." Makoto smiled in happiness.
"Well I think we should continue his inside." Rei said ushering them all inside.
These are the things she would miss the most, the love of her fellow Senshis.
Once they were all settled in Rei started by saying
"Mako-Chan it's great that you found your brother but are you sure you'll be ok by yourself there? I mean we have no idea if it's anything like Earth or not… They may try to kill you… What if we weren't there to help you? None of us would forgive ourselves if you got hurt or worse… Died.." Rei finished all gathering sad looks upon their faces.
"Mako-Chan I don't want you to die." Rini cried hugging Mako, as she gave her a sympathetic look as she tried to calm the flustered child.
"Rini don't cry y-you're too old for- Oh Mako-Chan I can't let you die!" Usagi cried as did Rini, both latching onto Makoto for dear life. Makoto then felt a hand placed upon her shoulder she then looked back to see Haruka smiling.
"Koto would never let herself be killed she's too stubborn." Haruka smiled giving all three a small bit of insurance.
"Well that's exactly what I was worried about for you guys… What if you got hurt while I was gone?"
"Mako, there are more of us than there are of you… I think you see my point.' Michiru said giving her friend a pleading smile.
"I believe you can do it Mako-Chan you have a strong heart you'll do I just know it!" Hotaru said grinning. Her violet eyes full of joy and happiness for her older friend.
"YEAH! Taru-Chan right! And who knows Mako maybe you'll find 'Your One'. I know you will! I've got a feeling, I AM the 'Goddess of Love' remember!" Minako said winking and giving her a peace sign.
"I HIGHLY doubt it Mina-Chan I'll be too busy looking for him or thinking about you guys the whole time!" Makoto smiled at them all.
"Mako-Chan if you leave… Whose gonna feed me?" Usagi screamed and began bawling.
"I'll starve!" Usagi screamed being her overly dramatic self falling over pretending to be dead.
"Meatball head you have enough food stored in yourself to hold you off for the rest of your life!" Rei yelled knocking her over the head.
"OW! And whose gonna protect me from Rei?" Usagi yelled everyone seemed to suddenly become interested in everything other than their future queens' question.
Rei then gave a malicious laugh.
"Oh this is the day I've been waiting for!" Rei yelled the most evil grin on her face, Usagis' eyes became bigger than her head.
"AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" She screamed jumping behind Makoto as they all began laughing. After they all calmed down Ami asked.
"So does that mean you're leaving Mako-Chan?" Ami asked as everyone looked at their senshi of Lightning in curiosity.
Makoto's eyes looked at each of them studying their emotions making sure that was what each of them wanted for her.
"Well.." Makoto sighed looking at Setsuna and she smiled at her reassuringly as she continued.
"..I suppose I am… I just wish I could take you all with me." Makoto smiled as did they all.
"That's great Mako-chan!" Rini cheered.
"And if you do end up finding the man of your dreams you better bring one back for me too!" Mina yelled laughingly.
" I will Mina-Chan don't worry!" Makoto grinned hugging the bubbly blonde.
" Will we see you tomorrow?" Usagi asked
" Yes you all can come to see me off when Setsuna sends me." Makoto smiled at them all.
"Be at Makotos at nine A.M. sharp… yes Usa-Chan that means you have to get up early." Setsuna smiled at her future queen.
"If it means seeing Mako-Chan then I'll be there at eight!" Usagi smiled proudly.
"Yeah right and pigs'll start flying at that exact moment and crows will start flying out of my ears!" Rei yelled.
"Rei those aren't crows that's just steam from you over heating." Usagi smiled then ran out the door shouting good bye as she scampered home before Rei could attack.
"You just wait and see tomorrow who will be laughing Usagi Tsukino! You'll see! As soon as Mako-Chan steps in that portal you're DEAD!" Rei screamed furiously.
They all then began saying their good byes and right before Makoto was about to leave Haruka caught her by the shoulder.
"If you want you can come over and train once more before you leave." Haruka asked Michiru and Hotaru standing beside her.
"I'll be making dinner and you're welcome to stay.' Michiru said giving her award winning smile.
Normally Makoto would have said no but this is something she and Haruka both knew she needed.
"Sure. Just let me run home to get changed and I'll be there as soon as I can" Makoto said while waving good bye to them and dashed off as quickly as her legs would let her.
-Hidden Sound Village-
Orochimaru paced planning out his devious plan to lure a Sailor Senshi into his grasp. Licking his lips almost tasting the raw power her body possessed.
He then averted his eyes to the picture of the girl running franticly to her friends' home unknowing that she would never reach it. He then spoke aloud to himself and sneered.
"You will be the perfect addition to Sasuke and it's faultless for luring Sasuke into my clutches as well as you my little puppet and even better your brother just so happens to be one of his dear friends… Because of you I will have all the power I need to get to the rest of your little senshi then to your delectable Queen." His mouth grew into a giant smirk knowing in only a little while everything would be falling into place for him.
"Now for the final touch." He said tapping the picture.
Makoto was quickly running to Harukas thinking about all that had happened to her this day. Her heart felt as if it would leap out of her chest in joviality. She let out a small squeal to try to calm herself down. All she ever wanted hoped, dreamed and prayed for was coming to her and all she had to do was wait until tomorrow morning for it all to begin.
Thank you so much you guys! It's because of you all this is really happening to me! she thought as a huge grin was now plastered on her face.
Suddenly she stopped coming to a screeching halt.
"I feel something… It feels like a portal… Oh my God what if Pluto needs our help!" Makoto said to herself as she began to frenetically look for the portal in utter fear.
"I bet something happened! I have to find it soon or-" Makoto stopped just as she saw the portal in the corner of her eye. It was in a desolate alley and before she even thought Makoto ran for it. She pulled her communicator out of her pocket that had been reluctantly placed there while she dressed to go to Ruka-Chans'.
She hastily flipped it open and spoke to anyone who could hear her.
"I'm on my way guys!" she shouted closing it and shoving it back into her pocket before she was engulfed in the lit blue aura, unknowingly that would be the last time she got to see her senshi before she left.
