Sailor Moon Sailor Star: A Twist in Time
(A Usagi-Seiya, Ami-Taiki and Minako-Yaten Fan Fiction)
This is my first time to write a Sailor Moon Sailor Stars Fan Fiction and I'm inspired to write one also due to my love on the characters of Seiya Kou and Usagi Tsukino in the Sailor Moon Sailor Stars Anime. I like Seiya for Usagi though we all know that in the manga and anime, Usagi ended up with Mamuro Chiba. I also got inspired by all the Fan Fictions that I have read from my fellow Seiya and Usagi Fans…hehehe so Sorry Mamuro Chiba I feel that you do not deserve Usagi like you think you do…
Some scenes, theme and situation may be similar to other Usagi and Seiya Fan Fiction but I do not copy them I respect their copyrights and I believe that Plagiarism is an criminal offense, if you find it quite similar it is because I also got some ideas from other writers of Fan Fiction I do want to acknowledge the writers Chette and SailorXStar for their ideas which made me wrote this credits to them. I however will make my own story, situations and scenes but would be closely related to the anime and magna and from the Fanfictions "Love the Second Time Around" by Chette Chan and "Sailor Moon: Destiny" by SailorXStar though mine would be a totally different story with different new characters and villains as
I know I have mention that Chibiusa is now happy as an angel, but you would not read it in this chapter because I'm planning to write a spin off about it, and also, I know that it is supposed to be a Usagi-Seiya, Ami-Taiki and Minako-Yaten Fan-fiction, but I decided to also explore the possibilities of the Makoto-Taiki tandem since he likes her too in the series. So I hope you guys would like the twist I made in this chapter. I also hope you would enjoy reading this as much I enjoyed writing it down.
I do not own Sailor Moon Sailor Stars it is own by Toei Animation and Naoko Takeuchi.
As Time Goes By
Two Years after the battle;
Two years had pass and Seiya, Yaten, Taiki, Usagi, Minako, Ami, Makoto and Rei, had already finished high school and are already preparing for college. Setsuna Meioh went back to be the guardian of time and space as Ultra Sailor Pluto.
Haruka and Michiru went to United Kingdom in order for Michiru to have her degree in performing arts and Haruka started competing races all over Europe, and Hotaru went back to his father's arms.
The three lights are now living under one house, the house which their manager gave them about two years ago. Now that they are living as humans on earth, the three lights were able to adjust, in their earthly life and enjoyed all the attentions from being a famous celebrity and at the same time having the attentions of their respective girlfriends.
The sad part about being a celebrity however, that is, you cannot have it all. This is what happened to Ami-chan and Taiki-san, as one week after their graduation, Taiki-san and Ami-chan broke up.
For the reason that Taiki-san does not want Ami-chan to study Medicine at Harvard School of Medicine in USA. He wants her to take up Medicine at the Tokyo Medical University with him, but she does not want to and decided to follow her heart, leaving Taiki broken hearted.
Then two weeks after their graduation, they are all gathered at the Hikarawa Shrine to bid Ami-chan farewell. Apparently Ami does not want to say good bye to them at the Airport, every one of the inner senshis, including Seiya and Yaten and Hotaru are there, but, Taiki decided not to show up to bid her farewell.
"Are you sure about this Ami-chan?" Usagi-chan asks
Ami looks at her "Yes, Usagi-chan, I will miss all of you, do not worry guys I would still be visiting home, during Christmas and New Year's," she said
"Are you sure you are not going to change your mind? You know Taiki really had a hard time coping up with the break up, he just stayed inside the house and is not doing anything but write poetry the whole day" Yaten said
Ami felt bad after what Yaten just said, then Minako elbowed her boyfriend then finally Seiya approached Ami and gives her a pat on the head and said
"Hey, Ami-chan do not worry about Taiki-san, he would be alright trust me" then winks at her
Usagi moved closer to Seiya and then laid her head on his shoulder and grabs his left hand and said
"Ami-chan Seiya is right we will take care of Taiki-san for you"
"Hey Taiki is old enough" Seiya protested and then Usagi looks at him with a forced smile and right then Seiya figures out what Usagi wants to say and then said
"Yeah we will"
"Arigato, Min'na, farewell, we will see each other again" and then Ami-chan rode the taxi going to the airport and then they all waved at her.
Not far behind is Taiki, looking at her taxi as it drove her away from him.
After Ami left, Taiki really got hurt, so he started going out, going clubbing's and dating countless woman's, which he would later on dump along the way.
All of his friends are already worried about him, they do not know what to do, they tried calling Ami, but she would not answer
He somehow felt what Seiya had been through for Usagi in the past, and he does not know how to deal with the heart break, because he never experienced it before.
Taiki is inside his bedroom dealing with the hangover he had when he went home drunk last night. Seiya, Yaten and the others except for Makoto are at the living room trying to figure out what to do with him.
Usagi and Seiya are seating side by side with Hotaru at the right side of Seiya, Minako and Yaten are seated right next to Hotaru and Rei is seating right next to Yaten.
"Months from now, the enrollment would already start, and yet Taiki is like a lunatic" Seiya said
Everyone looks worried "Yes, if only Ami-chan is here" Usagi-chan said
"I do not understand why Ami-chan had to leave and left Taiki broken hearted, why does she had to go study abroad, when she could be studying here with him" Yaten-kun said angrily.
Minako looks at him "We also do not know why she did that, but that was her decision, we have to respect that, we are Ami's friends, but even us could not control her life, we are here to support her, and about Taiki, we promise that we would take care of him for her right?" she said
"So what now any bright ideas, on how we pull Taiki out this mess he is in?" Yaten-kun asks
Then Makoto storms in the living room of the three lights house, "You are all here, and where is Taiki-san?" she asks, then they all look upstairs then she sat down besides Rei.
"What is he doing inside his room, is he going to just stay like this forever? Makoto-chan asks
"I wish we know what to do Makoto-chan" Usagi-chan said
"We cannot just stay here and just things figure out, we have to do something" Makoto-chan said,
Makoto could no longer take what Taiki is doing with his life, and so she decided to take matters into her own hands.
She stands up and walks towards the stairs, "you just got here, where you are going Makoto-chan?" Seiya asks
"If he is not going to come out and talk to us, then I might as well force him to" Makoto-chan said then she storms upstairs and knocks at Taiki's door
"Oh no, this is going to be bad, knowing Taiki-san" Yaten-kun said, and then they all went upstairs to follow her
She knocks at his room "Taiki-san, Taiki-san, open this door, Taiki-san" Makoto-chan said
Inside his room, Taiki is now bothered by her knocks, and decided to stand up and open the door, the others are now at the upstairs living room waiting to find out what will happen.
"WHAT? What do you want?" Taiki-san yelled at her
"What are you doing with your life, Taiki-san; you are not like this at all" Makoto-chan said
"What I'm doing with my life is none of your business Mako-chan" Taiki-san said angrily
"So what if Ami-chan left you, it is not yet the end of the world, you have to pull yourself together, Taiki-san" Makoto-chan said
What Makoto said made Taiki-san grew mad and push her aside she almost fell on the floor but she did not.
"You do not have the right to tell me what to do Mako-chan?" Taiki-san said angrily
She looks at him angrily
"Yes, I know that Taiki-san, but you are my friend, we are all your friends, we are here to help you, you do not have to go through this alone" Makoto-chan said
The others are just simply watching in silence, while they exchange words at each other.
"Easy for you to say because you have not yet been hurt before" Taiki, yelled back at her
Makoto is now angry and yells back at him
"You do not know what I have been through before, you do not know how many times I have been broken hearted, but I still manage to move on because I love to live and I'm not going to waste my life, for those stupid guys who broke my heart" she said
Taiki-san felt calm about what she said, it somehow hit him "You mean to say you have been hurt many times before?" he asks
Tears are now visible in her eyes "Yes, I know how you feel Taiki-san, I know it is hard to move on after a failed relationship, but life must go on, there are still so many fishes in the sea, do not waste your life, trying to cope up with the hurt, because you will never be free and would only continue to live miserably" she said, then she drop down to her knees
Taiki-san bend down and cup Makoto's face and looks at her crying eyes
"why are you saying all of this Makoto-chan, why are you trying to console me, why are you bothering yourself for my sake, why? I do not understand?" he asks
Makoto-chan looks at him "It is because, you are important to us, you are important to me Taiki-san"
Taiki-san looks surprise "Important to you?"
Then he felt strange, he felt a tingling emotion inside his heart, he looks far and remembered all the moments he spend with her, how she makes her smile, how she helps her before, the cooking show, which they did with Usagi and the last words which she said before she died during their battle with Galaxia, then he came back to reality.
"Why am I important to you Mako-chan?" Taiki-san asks
Makoto felt shy, but she decided not to hold back the feelings she had for him all these years, all the unreturned feelings of love and longing, which she had to suppress because of his relationship with Ami-chan.
Makoto look at him "Watashi wa anata o aishite Taiki-san" she said
Taiki-san and the others jaw dropped and their eyes widen when they heard her said such a thing.
"You love me Makoto-chan, since when?" Taiki-san asks
"since the day I met you… but when you guys left for Kinmoku…I decided to forget all my feelings for you…but when you came back all my feelings returned but… I also have to forget about it, because I respect your relationship with Ami-chan, and when she left you, I somehow felt angry at her for leaving you, but at the same time, I felt relieved, knowing that you are now free, but when I notice that you are wasting your life away, I could not help, but feel sad and so I decided to help you cope with the heart break" she explains
They could not believe that all these years, Makoto had been hiding her true feelings for Taiki away, because of her love for Ami-chan.
He stared at her "I also had a secret crush on you Makoto-chan" Taiki-san started to explain
Makoto-chan and the others jaw dropped and their eyes widen once again, after what Taiki-san just said.
"Yes, that is true, ever since I met you I already had a secret crush on you too…but when the battle with Galxia was over… and we went back to Kinmoku… I feel that I want to see you again and not Ami-chan, but when the Queen revealed to us about our past in the silver millennium, I somehow felt sad knowing that I have been in love with Ami-chan in the past and not with you, sometimes I felt that when I'm with Ami-chan I will have to always compete with her intellectually, but when I'm with you I felt more free and myself… but I also have to suppress my feelings for you, because of what happened to Ami-chan and I in the past…when Ami-chan left me, I felt really sad, because I do not know how to deal with the heart break…and now that you have told me the truth I guess I can now freely say to you that watashi mo anata o aishite Makoto-chan" he explains further
What Taiki-san revealed to them makes them more surprise.
Months after their high school graduation they all went their separate ways and decided to choose the path that they love to do, but as for Usagi and Seiya they took up the course which would help them in the future, because of what they are destined to become one someday.
Rei Hino became a flight stewardess of Japan Airlines and the girlfriend of a pilot.
Ami Mizuno went to America to study Medicine, she took her studies seriously without taking a break for love, after her break up with Taiki, and she decided not to get involved with someone else, not until she finishes her studies.
Minako Aino became an Actress doing movies with her on screen and off screen boyfriend Yaten Kou and also decided to focus on her career.
Yaten Kou is still busy with being an Actor and doing commercial endorsement together with Seiya and Taiki, apparently since Seiya and Taiki are busy with school he can only do commercial endorsement with them.
Makoto Kino took up two separate courses a one year diploma on Cuisine and a one year diploma on Patisserie with Taiki, at the Le Cordon Bleu an international culinary school which started in Paris, France, and started to operate in Tokyo, Japan in the year 1991, they are classmates on the afternoon class, and she also teaches, Judo to kids over the weekends, and now the supportive girlfriend of Taiki Kou.
Taiki Kou, is taking up a three separate courses first is his Bachelor's Degree in Medicine at the Tokyo Medical University, his classes are during the morning and whole day on a Saturday and also a one year diploma on Cuisine and another one year diploma on Patisserie, during the afternoon, still a celebrity endorser despite his busy schedule and at the same time the proud, supportive and loving boyfriend of Makoto Kino.
Seiya Kou took up a two separate courses a bachelor's degree in Southeast Asian and Japanese Studies at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, at the same time still a celebrity endorser and singer a good, loyal and romantic boyfriend to the lovely Usagi Tsukino.
Usagi Tsukino however decided not to take only one course but two courses, which is quite surprising on her part. She took up a one year diploma course on Cuisine and six months Patisserie certificate course at the same school of Makoto and Taiki over the weekends and she also took a four years course on Japanese Studies in the same school where Seiya is studying.
Hotaru is still living with her father and is now studying in Juban High School.
Four Years Later; at the house of the three lights
After Six years of staying in Kinmoku, Mamuro Chiba and Queen Kakyuu finally decided to live on Earth and stay here for good, she left Kinmoku in the hands of her younger sister Kirameki Kou, before they move back here; they had a simple coronation ceremony to make Princess Kirameki the new Queen of Kinmoku.
All of them are at the house of the three lights, seated on the living room chairs to finally decide on what to do next after graduation, when suddenly the doorbell rings. Seiya stands to see who is it and sees two familiar faces standing at the gate. At first he did not recognize them because they seem to have gone for so long, but Princess Kakyuu and Mamuro recognizes him the two of them still looks the same and seems to have not aged a bit.
They wave at him "Hey Seiya Kou, this is us, Mamo-chan and Kakyuu-san" Kakyuu-san said, and then he realize that it is really them, so he went to the gate and opens and closes the gate. The two followed him and he called everyone inside to come out.
They are seating at the benches outside the house near the zen garden, everyone are so please to see them again.
"Princess Kakyuu, Mamo-chan, it is great to see you guys again, what brings you guys back?" Rei-chan said
She smiles at them
"We are here, because, after the battle with Endymion, when Eternal Cosmic Sailor Moon and Prince Akairo hoshi revived me, I'm no longer a star, but a human being and because of that, my star life span decreases to seven years and also Mamuro, since he is already a human he only has a life span of six years in Kinmoku, which is why we have to left Kinmoku in order to live longer here on Earth and we also decided to finally get married here on Earth as well" Kakyuu –san explains
They all became happy with what Kakyuu said to them, "So you are neither a Queen nor a Princess of Kinmoku? Seiya asks
"Yes, I'm not, right now I'm simply just Kakyuu Kou" she said
"So where would you guys stay then?" Yaten-kun asks
"We still do not know yet, we will have to find a place somewhere" Mamo-chan said
"Well, you could just stay here in our house instead; this house was given to us by our manager in exchange of an exclusive contract with him, we got two spare rooms, you two could stay at the down stairs room since it is bigger than the guest room upstairs" Taiki-san said
"Yeah that is right, you guys can stay here if you like?" Seiya-kun and Yaten-kun said in unison.
They all laugh and Mamo-chan and Kakyuu-san just smiles and nod in agreement.
It is already getting late and so the three of them decided to escort their girlfriend's home, Taiki takes out the van and drives Makoto and Hotaru home, Yaten uses Seiya's car to drive Minako home and since Usagi's house is just three streets away Seiya decided to walk her home. Rei's boyfriend arrives and gives her a ride back to the Hirakawa Shrine.
Mamuro and Kakyuu are left alone at the house of the three lights and made themselves home. Taiki first arrive at the house and found Kakyuu and Mamuro at the ground floor living room seated on the sofa and drinking a green tea. Kakyuu find the right time to finally ask Taiki-san about Ami-chan.
"So, are you guys comfortable here?" Taiki-san asks
Kakyuu-san smiles at him "Yes, you guys have a lovely home, you three did a great job in maintaining the beauty of your house" she said
"Arigato Kakyuu-san" Taiki-san said
"ahhmmm Taiki, before you go, I would just wanted to ask you something?" she said
"What is it about Kakyuu-san?" he asks Mamuro just seats down quietly enjoying the green tea Kakyuu prepared for him, while reading some of the Magazines which features the three lights.
Taiki looks at her and he can feel his heart beating fast "what happened to you and Ami-chan, Taiki-san? I mean before we left for Kinmoku, the two of you seems to have a wonderful relationship, and now you are with Makoto-chan, what happened?" she inquires
"I knew it, I knew she is going to me ask me that question" Taiki said in his mind, he cleared his throat, breaths in deeply and then releases it slowly, he looks at her
"Well, the reason why, Ami-chan and I broke up is because, she broke up with me, after our high school graduation, Ami decided to take up Medicine at the Harvard School of Medicine in USA, I do not want her to go because my work and my life is here in Tokyo, Japan and I also wanted to study Medicine at the Tokyo Medical University, but she insisted of studying overseas, so she broke up with me, when we broke up, it was then that I realize that I have already been in love with Makoto Kino all these years and she still has the same feelings towards me after all these years, so we both decided to take a risk in our love and now we are happy with each other" Taiki-san explains
Kakyuu smiles at him "Does Ami-chan knows about your relationship with Mako-chan?" she asks
Taiki looks down and shook his head
"No, she does not know, she never came back, the last time we heard from her was at the time when her family here in Japan packed their bags and went to America to live with Ami at her apartment, her mother told us that Ami decided to live permanently in America and would no longer go back here in Japan, we tried emailing her, but we never receive any response, we tried to inform her through snail mail and long distance calls but still no good, it seems that she focuses herself in her studies first" he explains
"So what will you do now, what if Ami-chan show's up one of these days, four years have already pass by surely she already had a lot of time to think right, what if she comes back here surprising all of you what would you guys tell her" Kakyuu asks, Mamuro pretended not to listen to their conversation and just continue reading.
"Mako-chan and I are also discussing that every now and then and we decided to tell her when she comes home here in Japan" Taiki-san said
Then Yaten arrives and parks that car at the garage and Seiya also arrives, seconds after Yaten parks the car.
At the Tsukino's Residence
When morning came Usagi-chan finally is able to wake up early and prepared their breakfast, a banana and strawberry crepe, with a whipped cream on top and a coffee for her parents and Shingo who are all very excited to watch her graduate in collage.
After she prepared the breakfast the phone rings, she pick it up and very much excited to listen to her boyfriends' voice.
"Moshi, moshi, Seiya-kun" she said
"Moshi, moshi Usagi-chan, this is not Seiya, its Ami, your longtime friend remember?" Ami-chan said over the phone, Usagi-chan is in shock.
"Moshi, moshi, are you still there Usagi-chan, can we meet at Hirakawa Shrine this afternoon, at around 3:00 pm, I'm excited to see all of you, I just got back from America" she said over the phone, then hangs up, finally she received a call from Ami-chan, the first call she received in after four years.
Usagi could not believe what just happen, it took a while before the call finally sinks in to her.
"Hooray, Ami-chan is back" she said excitedly, and then she remembered that she still did not know that Taiki-san and Makoto-chan are already lovers, then her excitement turned into sadness.
"Ami-chan is back?" she said in a form of shock then walks slowly towards their couch, and then she shook her head, "I have to tell the others about this" she said
But before she could call them through their communicator, someone knocks at their front door,
"Daredesuka?" she shouted
"Hey, Odango,sore wa watashi, anata no chūjitsuna kareshidesu" he said
"Seiya?" she said
"Who else could there be, unless you are expecting someone else aside from me?" he said and knocks at the door again impatiently
"Tsūkon, Seiya" she said and then stands up to open the door
"Who is it Usagi-chan?" Ikuku Tsukino asks
"It is my boyfriend Seiya, mom" she said
"Oh, let him in" her mother said
"I'm already at the front door mom" she said and opens the door and gives him a kiss on the right cheek and he kisses her left cheek
Seiya entered the house and sees the look on Usagi's face "what is the matter, why do you look like that?" he asks with concern
She looks at him still looks confuse "why are you here so early anyway?" then she offers him to seat down on the couch, he walks towards the couch and seats, then she follows him and seats right next to him.
"Well, I'm here because I would not miss another breakfast with you, well now that we have been lovers for almost six years, I guess it would only be proper if will get myself use to your cooking and preparing the breakfast for me, what do you say?" he said
Usagi seems to be distant, and he notices it, "this is not like you, by now, I can already tell if something is bothering you, come on tell me what is bothering you" he insisted
She looks at him "promise you would not get angry?" she said
"Why would i…?" he said but before he could continue saying, she said "Ami-chan is back"
Looking confuse "Waeehh…what?" he said then she repeat what she just said "Ami-chan is…" but Seiya cut her
"Yeah, I heard what you said, are you sure that, that is her?" he said in a disbelief voice
"Yes, I'm positive about her, and she wants to meet all of us at the Hirakawa Shrine at 3:00 this afternoon" she said
"But… why…why now, I mean she did not called us or even tell us or even show herself in front of us for…how long….four years…and now she is just going to show up and then bam…she wants to see us this afternoon…I mean…I could not understand…?" The confuse Seiya said
Usagi is also confuse "yes I know what you mean, which is why I need your help to tell everyone that we need to meet at the Hirakawa Shrine right now, but my concern really is how to tell her about Taiki and Makoto's relationship" she said
He breaths in deeply and sighs
"alright we will tell the others to meet us at the Shrine right now, about Taiki and Makoto, let us just let them tell her the truth, I'm sure she would understand, after all it was her choice to break Taiki's heart that lead him to realize his true feelings for Makoto" he explains
Usagi nods then contacted everyone through their communicator, good thing Rei-chan does not have any flight scheduled for that day and is able to prepare the shrine for the very urgent meeting.
At the Hirakawa Shrine
Everyone is already at the shrine including Kakyuu-san and Mamo-chan. Usagi and Seiya, did not told them over their communicator, the reason why they called them for the very urgent and important meeting.
They are all seated at the living room, except for Hotaru, because she is still at school,
"So what is this fuss all about?" Yaten-kun said in an annoyed voice
"Yeah this could better be worth our time" Taiki-san said
"Ohhhh…yeah this would really be worth your time Taiki-san" Seiya-kun said
Looking confuse "what do you mean by that Seiyakun and why is Usagi-chan seems to be very nervous?" Taiki-san asks
Usagi-chan looks at Seiya-kun and then he signals her to tell them the truth, she took a very deep breath and then sighs, "Alright here goes nothing" she said
"What are you waiting for, tell us already" they all said in unison making her feel more nervous, then she blurted out,
She closes her eyes "Ami-chan is back, and she wants to see us at 3:00 this afternoon, right here in the Hirakawa Shrine" she said in the fastest way possible
"Waeehh…WHAT?" they all said in unison
Seiya cross his arms "Just exactly what my reaction was" he said
Still looking surprise, Rei-chan looks at Usagi-chan "Are you sure that, that is her?"
"Yup, still the same follow-up question" Seiya said, while still crossing his arms
"Yes, at first I was excited to finally hear Ami-chan's voice after four years, but then again, I realize that she is the only one who still does not have any idea on Taiki and Makoto's relationship, then I felt sad" she said
They all look at each other, Makoto grabs the hand of Taiki, looks at him "I guess we should tell her about us later" she said
All of them nod in agreement, "so we will have to surprise her then" Minako-chan said
"Oh she would be surprise alright" Yaten-kun said and Minako elbowed him on the stomach
"Ouch, that hurts" Yaten said while covering his stomach with his arms cross
"Alright, we will do some decoration, Seiya and I would have to fetch her and bring her somewhere, while you guys decorate this place, Taiki and Makoto, you two would have prepare the food, while trying to figure out how to break it to her gently, Minako and Yaten, you would have to decorate the entire living room with Rei, Mamoru and Kakyuu you would be in charge of the drinks, (crosses her eyebrows) no alcoholic drinks please, we know that she does not like to drink alcohol, alright we will, go now, good luck everyone" Usagi-chan said
"Wow, you sounded like a true leader now, Usagi-chan" Mamo-chan teases her
She frown at him "hmmm…what did you just said Mamo-chan?" she said
Mamo-chan waves at her with both hands "Ā nanimonai" he said
Seiya laugh at Usagi, she looks at him "hmmm Seiya" and she grows taller than him, making Sieya feel small and scared looking at her,
"Ā nanimonai, let's go Odango" he said and then she breath in deeply and sigh, she looks more clam now, and then followed Seiya to the car.
Inside the car Usagi-chan, tried contacting Ami-chan to ask where she is staying, apparently she was not able to ask her a while ago because she hangs up the phone before she could even ask her, and she did not know the number of Ami-chan since she did not had an open communication with them for the past six years.
Usagi-chan tried contacting her through her communicator, and she is surprise to find out that she is still using her communicator but she did not answer so she left a message instead.
"Ami-chan, where are you staying, Seiya and I wants to meet you first, can you tell us where to go, so that we can fetch you? Call back please" Usagi-chan said
Seiya who is driving the car, glance at her "So did it work?" he asks
She looks at him and shook her head "No good, it seems that she does not want to be found" she said,
"So what shall we do now, we cannot just drive all over Tokyo just to find one person who does not want to be found" he said
Then seconds later after Seiya said that her communicator beeps up Ami-chan is calling her she push the button to receive the call.
"Usagi-chan, I miss all of you so much, I'm sorry if I was not able to pick up my communicator because I'm still taking a bath, well, you and Seiya could visit me at my old folk's house, you know where our old house is right?" Ami-chan said
"Yes Ami-chan I know where it is, we would be on our way there now, by the way, I though you sold that house before, why are you there now?" Usagi-chan asks
"No one wants to buy the house, so we just asks one of our relatives to watch over the house until we get back, I left everything here, including my communicator, and I'm surprise to see that, it still works, well, I have to go now to get dress, see you in a moment Usagi-chan" Ami-chan said
Then she turns off the communicator "see you in a moment Ami-chan" she said, Seiya looks at her, she looks so down and she seems not excited to see one of her best friend.
"Hey, do not look so down, everything is going to be alright" he said trying to cheer her up
She looks at him "Seiya, what do you think happened to Ami-chan for the past four years? I mean she never tried to contact us, she did not even talked to me face to face over the communicator, she left her communicator at home, I do not know, it seems that she is not the same Ami-chan that we all know and love" she said
Seiya looks at the road "well, to tell you honestly, I think, Ami-chan had her own reasons why she did what she did, we may not know what those reasons are but, I can sense that she misses us terribly, Usagi-chan whatever happens, we will just have to respect and support Ami-chan okay?" he said
Usagi looks at him and smiles "Arigato, Seiya-kun" she said
Then they finally arrived at Ami's old place, and Ami is already waiting for them at the gate, Ami's physical appearance now changes, unlike the others who still look the same.
She now has a long wavy blue hair, which she ponytailed; she had also gotten taller than before, a tone and athletic body, she is wearing a pair of denim blue pants a running shoes and a plain white shirt with a black vest , she looks very stylish in her clothes.
Both of them could not believe their eyes, "Ami-chan is that you?" they said in unison
"Hop on Ami, we are going to the Crown Restaurant to have some coffee, if that is alright with you" Seiya-kun said
Ami-chan smiles cutely at them "Yes, Seiya-kun, I'm sure you all want to know what happened to me for the past four years right?" she said, and then gets inside the car of Seiya.
There is still awkwardness in the air, all three of them are now inside the car, there is silence in the air until they finally arrived at their destination.
Seiya gentleman as he is opens the car doors for the two girls. Then they claim up the stairs and Seiya opens the restaurant door for them.
They seat on their favorite spot in the entire restaurant, the corner table near the entrance door Seiya and Usagi are seating side by side and Ami seats in front of them.
Seeing that nobody wants to speak up, Ami-chan breaths in deeply and lets out a sigh, she smiles at them "Usagi-chan, (grabs Usagi's hands) I'm sorry, for what I did, for not being able to communicate with you guys, I feel really sad and stupid also for living Taiki-san, I do not know where to start or how to say this" Ami-chan said
Usagi-chan and Seiya-kun looks at each other and then both look at her "what is it that you wanted to say Ami-chan? Go on say it, Seiya and I would be very much willing to listen, and promise we would not get angry or say anything until you are finish" Usagi-chan said affirming her
Ami sigh, and then let's go of Usagi's hands
"The reason why I left for America was because of my mother...(looks down)
she wanted me to study in America, even if I do not want to...
off course I do not want to leave you guys behind and break Taiki's heart...(looks back at them)
but when my mother found out about our relationship, she asks me to broke up with him because he does not want him for me...(squeezes her hands)
but still I fought for our love and hide it from her, when she found out, that I did not broke up with him...(looks at the left window)
she got really mad at me and force me to choose between Taiki and you guys or them my family... (sigh)
with a heavy heart off course I choose my family and forced myself to break up with him...(looks up)
when I left I cried and cried the whole flight, I had no other choice, because my mother is sick with breast cancer...(looks back at them)
which is why, we all have to move to America for her treatments, she was able to receive all of your letters and did not gave it to me...she also block all of you in my email address, she asks me to leave my communicator behind as well, so that I could focus on my family and my studies as well...(tears slowly falling down her eyes)
I love you guys so much because you are my second family, I also love Taiki so much until now...(sigh)
I never stop loving him...(Usagi and Seiya looks at each other)
but most of all I love my family and my mother so much, and now that she already pass away and that I have already graduated with honors at the Harvard School of Medicine, I have finally decided to go back here in Japan and to be reunited with you guys and to say sorry to Taiki for what I did and to tell him that I still love him and hoping that he would give me a second chance" she explains and forces a smile at them
What Ami revealed, answers all of their questions, but also gives them a bigger problem since she is still in love with him, but he is already in love with someone else.
After telling them the truth, Ami-chan stands up "Shitsureishimashita, Usagi-chan, Seiya-kun, I would just like to go to the comfort room, I need to go pee" she said, they both nod, then she walks towards the comfort room.
Both of them look nervous, they do not know what to do with the situation, he looks at her "stop worrying, you also make me worry" he said
"I cannot help it, I'm afraid on what will happen to her if she finds out" Usagi-chan said
Seiya grabs her right hand and squeeze it "do not worry everything is going to be alright" he said
She looks at him "so what shall we do now Seiya?" Usagi-chan asks
He breaths in deeply and sigh, "We will do nothing" Seiya said
"But" Usagi-chan protested, but before she could say something to him, Ami-chan approaches their table,
"Did I miss something" Ami-chan said
Both of them are caught by surprise,
"Ā nanimonai, we are just talking about what to do on our graduation day" Usagi-chan said, while waving her hands, and then she smiles at them and then she seats down in front of them.
"So Ami-chan you seem to be different, since when did you decided to grow your hair?" Usagi-chan asks
"Oh, this, I started growing my hair when I was still studying in America, I had no time to take care of myself or my hair, because I was very busy juggling both my studies, my mother's treatments and work, so I have no time to go to the salon, until I realize that my hair is already long" she said
"So you are also working their?" Seiya-kun asks
"Hai, I had to, because mother's treatments are so expensive, and my father's salary was only enough for her treatments and the hospital bills, so I also have to work in order to have money for our daily needs, good thing the school offers me a teaching profession, since my grades are excellent in all my class, so I teach chemistry to students who are having low grades in that subject, the school pays me enough salary for our daily needs and also help my father with the hospital bills as well" Ami-chan explains
Usagi looks excited to hear her story "So why did you have a tone athletic body?" Usagi-chan said
"Oh, I have been doing tennis, it helps me to keep my body fit and at the same time releasing the stress" Ami-chan said and smiles at them.
So what do you think would happen next? What do you think would happen at the surprise party? How would Taiki and Makoto tell Ami the truth? Who would propose a marriage to whom?
