On Vegeta's space ship. A new evil threatens the Earth and Serena is nowhere to be found. Will she make it in time to save her friends?
"I've heard that you were strong, but no one ever told me that you were this strong or this
beautiful." He said, not sounding the least bit worried. "I make even break a sweat fighting you. Most of the people I fight aren't even strong enough to make good sport. But not you, you're strong and beautiful. Maybe I'll let you live." He said, scratching his chin. "You'd make the perfect Queen for my new kingdom." He said. Just then, the whole underground palace, at least that's what Serena thought it was, began to shake.
"Wha... what's going on?" She stammered, trying to keep her balance. She lost hold of the power that she had possessed a few minutes before and fell to the ground. "What's happening to me?" She felt light-headed. Like she was about to pass out. She felt her eyes closed and when they opened, she was laying in Vegeta's arms.
The next day, Serena awoke to find Vegeta holding her in his arms. She felt so safe laying with his arms wrapped around her. She looked at his sleeping form and decided that she'd let him sleep a little while longer. She climbed out of bed and walked to the kitchen. She opened the refrigerator and pulled out something to make for breakfast. Lita had given her a few cooking lessons, so she knew how to cook a few things. She started cooking breakfast and when it was almost done, Vegeta walked into the kitchen, yawning loudly.
"What ya cooking woman?" He asked sitting down at the table, crossing him arms over his chest.
"Breakfast." She answered not even looking at him.
"Give it to me!" He demanded.
"You'll just have to wait a minute til it's done!" Serena barked.
"Hurry up!" He snapped. She knew he didn't mean it, it was just his personality. She was used to him snapping at her. She just went about her business, cooking breakfast for the two of them.
"What happened yesterday?" She asked placing a plate in front of him. He didn't answer right away. He was too busy stuffing his face. He paused for a moment, swallowing the bite in his mouth.
"You don't remember?" He asked, a shocked look on his face. He still had cuts and bruises from her, but she didn't remember it? "I'll tell you later." He said, and went back to the plate in front of him. Serena's eyes cast down to the floor. She wasn't hungry for probably the first time in her life. She sat at the table and stared down at her plate. The thought of eating made her stomach turn. What's wrong with me? She asked herself. I'd normally be done, but food disgusts me. Her thoughts drifted to the dream she had had. What does it mean? She thought.
"What's wrong?" He asked, he noticed that she wasn't eating. He had already finished and pat his stomach. "That was damn good." He said, looking at her. She had a troubled expression on her face. She didn't answer, she just stood up and walked into the bedroom. She changed and got ready for Vegeta to train her. She quickly changed and walked out the door, almost running into Vegeta. He seemed really worried about her. He stopped her and gently pushed her against the wall.
"What's wrong?" He asked, with a look of genuine sincerity in his eyes.
"I don't know." Serena said. "I don't feel all that great. I'm really worried about my friends. I had a really strange dream last night. They were in trouble but there was nothing I could do about it."
"Hmm" He said, trying to think of what he could do to ease her worries. He couldn't think of anything to tell her. She pushed past him and headed for the stairs that lead up to the main part of the ship.
"So... Are we going to get busy?" She asked, flashing him a V. she disappeared up the steps and Vegeta followed.
When Vegeta climbed up the stairs, Serena was stretching out her legs.
"I'm not going to put the gravity on quite as high as last time." He said, pushing a few buttons.
"Why not?" Serena asked, puzzled.
"After what happened yesterday, I don't think it's a good idea." He said, they were both doing pushups in 20 times normal gravity.
"I don't remember what happened. Tell me please." She pleaded, staying in the up position until he agreed.
"Fine." He said, continuing with the push ups. "Yesterday, you turned Super Saiyan and were intent on killing me." This caught Serena by surprise, causing her to fall to the floor.
"What?!?!?" She asked, up on her knees. "I would never!?!"
"I know you wouldn't do anything like that intentionally." He said, he didn't even act as though it had been a big deal. "It was the Saiyans instincts. That's all it was."
Serena couldn't help but think that it was more than that. She had a really bad feeling that it was much more than he thought it was.
For months, Vegeta trained Serena. He didn't dare push her as hard as he had before. He knew that it wouldn't be very good if he did. A few months later, though, Serena had learned to control her power. She could become a Super Saiyan and still hang on to who she was. She had passed up Vegeta, and he was jealous. He loved her, but he couldn't help but be jealous of her power. He had royal blood, he should be the one that became a Super Saiyan, but instead, Serena, who was born a low class soldier, had been born a Super Saiyan. Serena was training at 70 times normal gravity already and she had been able to not have any more of her little outbursts.
"How am I doing?" Serena asked, when Vegeta was teaching her a new technique. "Is this how it goes?" Serena asked, a ball of energy formed in the palm of her hand. It was a bright white light and it made her eyes shine. "Wow, it's really bright!" She said, shielding her eyes as the brightness kept on growing. When it was ready, she hurled it at Vegeta, who was able to block it.
"Good!" He said, dodging the next attack. "You really learn fast, when you're not whining!" He said, chuckling to himself.
"Hey!" Serena yelled, playfully punching him in the arm, not trying to hurt him. "You big jerk!" She was smiling and he could tell she was just playing around. Soon her smile faded and her eyes grew to a huge size. Her mouth dropped open and she fell to her knees. "NO!" She cried out. "It's impossible!"
"What?!" Vegeta demanded, grabbing Serena by the shoulders.
"It's them! They're back!" She cried. "I have to go to Earth! It's a matter of life and death! Thousands of lives are in danger!" She didn't know what she was going to do. She had to stop them before something horrible happened, but how could she. They were thousands of miles away.
Serena ran around frantically trying to get some things together that she might need.
"Serena calm down!" Vegeta yelled, grabbing her by the shoulders. "It'll take at least a few months to get back to the planet Earth!"
"My friends don't have a few months!" She cried. "They'll be gone by then! And so will the planet!"
"How do you expect to get there!" He demanded.
"I'll find some way to get there!" She yelled, pulling away from him. "Even if I risk my life! I can't just let them die!"
She changed her clothes and grabbed the bag she had packed so quickly. She ran upstairs and set the bag on the floor. She took out her locket and opened it up.
"I beg that you help me now." She whispered, seeing the light from the crystal start to shine. "I have to save them, I can't let anything happen to them. I have to protect them, and they will protect me." Her eyes were rimmed with tears as she said these words. She knew that she may already be too late. Pink ribbons swirled around her body, forming her white princess dress. Just then, Serena saw a figure emerge from the white light. A soft voice spoke these words.
"My child." A sweet voice whispered. "I will take you to help your friends. The crystal can do many things, but there are some that you need to do on your own. I do not expect you to understand, but one day you will." Queen Serenity's glowing body floated towards Serena. She took Serena's hand and lead her into the white light that filled the room.
"Serena!" A voice yelled as she disappeared into the white light.
Serena looked around her and found herself sitting on her couch. It wasn't like the dream, her apartment was perfectly fine. She stood up and walked to the phone. She picked up the receiver and dialed in Rei's number. Rei picked up on the second ring.
"Hello?" A voice came on over the line, she sounded agitated. What else was new.
"Hello? Rei?" Serena asked when she heard Rei's voice.
"Serena?" The voice questioned. "Is... is that you?"
"It's me." Serena said, relieved to hear her best friends voice. "I was so worried."
"Where are you?" Rei asked.
"I'm at my apartment." Serena said, the feeling of relief soon wore off when she heard an explosion outside. "Oh noo..!" She cried, as the telephone when she hears an explosion outside.
"Serena!" Rei screamed. "Serena!!" There was no answer. She slammed down the phone and called the rest of the scouts on the communicator. "Get to Serena's apartment now!" She yelled running to her car. She jumped in and tried to start it. It started and she sped away from the curb. She drove out onto the road and pushed the brakes at a stop sign. They didn't respond. "What the..." She couldn't finish her sentence because a huge semi smashed into the passenger side of her car.
Mina ran out the door and ran down the street. She didn't live that far from Serena so she didn't take the car. "Serena. I hope you're okay." Mina said running towards her friends apartment. She saw smoke floating up from the street so she picked up the pace. She ran to the apartment building her friend lived in and rushed up the stairs. She pulled on the door handle, locked. She felt above the door and grabbed the extra key. She unlocked the door and pushed it open. "Serena!" She cried seeing a huge hole where a window had once been. "Serena!!!" She shouted, sticking her head out the window just in time to see someone disappear through a black hole, with an unconscious Serena in his arms.
The rest of the scouts entered the apartment minutes after Mina ran in. Mina saw a sad expression on her friends faces.
"Someone took Serena!" Mina cried, they all gasped in shock. "How could they know who she was?" Mina gushed. "I mean no one is supposed to know."
They all mourned over the abduction of their friend and leader, but there wasn't anything they could do about it. Just then, the phone in Serena's apartment began to ring. Ami answered it and her expression filled with terror.
"Are you sure?" She asked. "Is she going to be all right? I... I understand." Ami hung up the phone and turned to the rest of the scouts.
"You guys." She said, her eyes filling with tears. "Rei's been in a car accident." She said tears streaming down her face.
"What?!" A cry rang out through the rest of the girls.
"Is she going to be okay?" Someone asked.
"Can we go see her?" Someone else asked.
"Stop!" Ami cried above their voices. "She's in a coma. They said her brake lines were cut."
"No!" They cried. They all broke into tears, tears of sorrow for the loss of two of their best friends.
They had to take the bus to the hospital because when they returned home, they all discovered that all of their brake lines were cut. It's a good thing the rest of them were close enough to walk, but poor Rei. She had rushed out in a blind rage. She was ready to kill anyone that would try and hurt her best friend. She wouldn't admit it, but she loved Serena like she was her sister.
They rode the bus in complete silence, no one had anything to say. They were still in shock. A gang of guys climbed aboard the bus and saw a bunch of hot girls on the bus and decided to have a little fun.
"Hey babe." One of them said. "You got the time?"
No one said a word, they just sat there in their sorrow.
"Hey I'm talking to you!" He yelled, grabbing Lita's face in his hand.
"That was a bad move brother." She said, punching him in the face. He fell to the ground and covered his face where a huge bruise was already starting to form. "We don't need anything from you, we have enough to worry about. So go back to what ever sewer you came out of."
"Are you talking to me, little girl?" He demanded, his face twisted into a look of rage. "If you was, you're going to pay."
"You need to learn how to talk." Ami said, standing up next to her friend. "That's not proper grammar. The proper way to say it is..." She was cut short when a fist slammed into her face. She fell to the ground and spit a mouthful of blood on the floor.
"This is our turf." He said. "So you better beat it, before you get hurt."
Lita wasn't about to be beat. After helping up her friend, she charged at the leader, knocking him to the floor. She punched him hard in the face several times, but flew forward when the bus driver slammed on the brakes.
"If you want to fight!" He shouted. "Get off the bus!" Mina and Ami pulled Lita off of the man and off the bus.
"We have to be going." Ami said, her face started to swell up.
"Hey! Lemme go!" Lita was yelling, it took both of them together to pull her off the bus.
"It was nice playing with you." Mina said, waving as the bus pulled away. It didn't really matter, they were almost to the hospital. They walked into the hospital and asked where Rei's room was. They weren't allowed in the room, but they were allowed to see her through a window. She looked so pale, and drawn.
They all went back into the waiting room, where Ami was given some ice for her swollen cheek.
"Thanks for sticking up for me back there." Lita said, pressing the ice against Ami's cheek.
"Oww!" She cried out. "It was no problem. I couldn't let them hurt a friend. Especially after what has happened today."
Serena saw a bright flash. She ran to the window and looked at the street below, all she saw was a bright white light heading towards her window. She screamed in fear as the window shattered, sending pieces of glass into her flesh. She covered her face with her hands and screamed. She felt the warm blood trickle down her arms, dripping off her elbows and staining the carpet. She saw the figure of a man and then another explosion erupted, sending her flying against the back wall. She dropped the phone and fell to the ground unconscious.
"Serena?!" The voice on the other line yelled. "Serena!!!"
Serena's eyes opened to find that she was laying in a large bed with white blankets covering her. She had a crown on her head and she wore a long white dress with wings attached to the back. She sat up and swung her feet over the edge of the bed.
"What happened?" She asked herself out loud, putting her hand on her head.
"Ah. So you're finally awake." A mans voice said. She jumped up into a fighting stance.
"Who's there!" She demanded. "Show yourself!"
A man appeared in front of her.
"The famous Princess Serena. They never told me how beautiful you were." He grabbed her chin in his hand, squeezing hard, causing tears to come to her eyes.
"Let go!" She yelled, slapping his hand away. The man's eyes narrowed at her and with one blast, he sent her crashing into the wall. Serena stood up slowly, holding her stomach with both hands. He looked so familiar, almost like Prince Diamond from so many years ago. He had died in her arms when Wiseman killed him. He was so young, he couldn't have been much older than 14.
"Who are you?" She asked, slowly walking towards him. A man wearing a cape over his face came out behind him.
"So you are Princess Serena?" He asked, he was holding a crystal ball similar to the one Wiseman had had.
"Wiseman!" Serena cried when she saw the familiar figure standing before her. "It it's impossible! You... you're dead!" She stammered, feeling her fear grow huge.
"We're here to take over your planet." He said, she could feel power radiating from both of them. They were really strong, and she could feel it.
"How can it be?" She asked, they both saw the look of terror on her face. Then she thought back to when they had gone to the future to save Queen Serenity and it all became clear. Before Queen Serenity had become the Queen, she had banished the black moon family far into outer space. They were evil and had one goal, to take over the planet Earth. They were power hungry and would do anything to get what they wanted. This was before they were banished to the Nega-moon, and Serena knew she had to do something quick.
"So Princess, shall we begin?" Young Prince Diamond said.
"Why are you doing this?" She asked, seeing the evil look in his eyes. He had a black crescent moon on his
forehead which made his look even more sinister.
"It's simple." He said, lunging at her. She moved out of the way just in time. "I want this planet."
"Why?" She asked, ducking a punch. "Can't you live here in peace?"
He growled and charged at her, knocking her to the ground.
"It will be mine, and you will be my Queen." He said, he grabbed her head with both hands and concentrated his dark energy into her body. She screamed as pain ripped through her body. She couldn't even move, she grew weak and soon, didn't even have enough energy to open her eyes. She felt the pain diminish and then everything was white.
When Serena opened her eyes, she didn't recognize the surroundings. She was in a different place than she had been in before.
"Where am I?" She said aloud. She was still dressed like Queen Serenity, with the long white dress and wings attached to the back. She stood up and looked around her. She was laying in the middle of a long corridor. She started to walk down the corridor, curious as to where it may lead. Her heels clicked on the hard floor as she made her way down the corridor.
It was so long, Serena thought she'd never reach the end of it. When she finally did, though, she stood before a huge door.
"I'll never be able to move that." She said quietly to herself. "How can I get through?" She thought about it for a minute and in her frustration, she sent a blast of energy against the wall. "I'm so stupid!" She said out loud. "Why didn't I think of it in the first place?" She scolded herself. She stood back from the door and began to power up. Her scream echoed through the long hallway. When she had gathered enough energy, she fired, blasting a huge hole in the door. She stepped through the door and found herself in a huge throne room. Sitting on the throne was young Prince Diamond himself.
"So you've finally decided to join us." He said, sipping from the wine glass in his hand.
"Aren't you a little young to be drinking!" Serena snapped, as the guards grabbed both of her arms and drug her up to the throne and threw her to the ground in front of Prince Diamond.
"So what have you decided?" He asked. "Will you join me as my Queen? Or will you perish like your friends are sure to do?" Serena glared into his eyes and spit at his feet.
"I'll never be your Queen!" She yelled, her voice echoing through the palace.
"Well, I'm sorry, but you have no choice." He said, his gaze meeting hers. "I'll make you be my Queen!" With that he grabbed her face and pulled it close to his, forcing her to kiss him. She fought, but wasn't strong enough to pull away. With each second that the stayed lip-locked, Serena felt her body falling under Diamond's control. When he pulled away, she didn't have control over her body. He made her do what he wanted her to do.
"Now, my Queen. Come take your place by my side on the throne." Prince Diamond said, motioning to the Queen's throne. "You are mine for all time."
She did as she was told, not saying a word. There was a fake feeling of love in her. He tried to steal her love from her, but it didn't work as well as he had expected. She didn't show any affection for him like he had expected. She was like a ghost in her body.
"Arise my Queen, we will soon be rising to the surface. In the very center of Tokyo, where we will rule the universe from!" He said. He threw back his head and his evil laughter echoed throughout the palace.
The palace began to shake as it rose to the surface.
"Soon, we will rule this miserable little planet and there's nothing anyone can do about it!" His laughter roared even louder through the palace. Serena wanted to cover her ears, but instead, she threw back her head and laughed in the same evil laugh. She couldn't stop, something was forcing her to do it. She was now one hundred percent loyal to Prince Diamond. The only thing that could break it, was her one true love Vegeta, but would he be there in time?
In the Center of Tokyo...
"Daddy." A little girl said, tugging on her father's arm. "Can I get a puppy?" She asked, pulling her father over to the window of the Pet Store.
"A puppy is a lot of work." He said, giving her a doubtful look.
"Please!" She begged.
"Hmm.." He said. "I guess. But you have to feed it everyday, and exercise it everyday." He said, about to open the door to the store.
"What's that daddy!" The little girl cried when the ground began to rumble.
"I don't know! Let's go!" He cried, grabbing his daughters hand and dragging her away. All the people on the street were doing the same. The rumbling grew louder, causing more and more people to flee in fear.
Screams rang out through the middle of Tokyo as a black crystal began to rise in the middle of the street.
"What is that thing?" Someone cried.
"Let's get out of here!" Someone else cried.
"Run for your lives!!" Another person yelled, running away from it.
The castle arose in the middle of Tokyo, spreading to an enormous size. Serena and Prince Diamond were both inside, watching the mast chaos. Serena watched in fear, but was unable to do anything about it.
