Thats finally over with, I never did like Clowns in the first place. The long blond haired girl known as Mina Aino or Sailor Venus said patting her hands as the ashes disappeared from the remains of the beast they had fought.
Well at least its destroyed and it wont attract anymore unsuspecting children. The Blue haired girl known as Sailor Mercury or Ami Mizuno.
Yeah, good job everyone I guess thats a wrap. Usagi or Sailor Moon said to the group as they had defeated a Monster. One that had masqueraded as a Clown and draining the life and energy from children while he performed. The three Sailor Scouts had discovered him and discovering his true form after a brief battle had destroyed him and saving the Children. Lets all get some milkshakes to celebrate! She said squealing eagerly.
Oh no you dont! A small cat said stepping forward. You promised your mother you was going to study for your history test and your not going to squander anymore time. Luna said sternly to her
What?! Cmon superheroes need to kick back and relax! Sailor Moon protested to her.
No buts, your grades are bad enough as it is, we dont need you to get another F. Luna said to her. And dont even think about having Ami give you a cheat sheet like last time. Your going to study and actually earn an A for a change.
Cheat sheet? Mina said a bit confused.
I dont know what shes talking about. Ami said with an embarrassed smile as Sailor Moon had pleaded for her to give her answers to a test a month ago and she felt no choice to do so and help her friend or else Usagis mother was going to kill her.
Fine, Ill see you all later Sailor Moon grumbled and walked away Luna following after her to make sure she didnt try to run off.
Well Ill see you later Ami. Mina said to her and the two said their goodbyes and went their separate paths.
Guess Ill head home now. Ami said as she began to walk towards her home. Maybe get herself a snack and read her new book she had gotten.
She walked through the park and stretched her arms in a relaxed state as no one was around and she didnt have to worry about changing outfits as she was still in her Fuku outfit.
As she made her way home, she was unaware of something watching her from afar and getting closer to her without her knowing.
This was a rather easy monster for a change, wasnt that difficult to defeat, I think I couldve bested it myself. She said to herself. She stopped when she heard something. She turned her head and saw a bunny rabbit across from her. Aw! How cute! She said with a smile looking on at it as it looked up at her its nose twitching. She looked on at it when she saw its eyes widen and dart off. Hey where you going? She said in confusion as it ran away. Its not Rabbit Season, Im not going to hunt you. Ami said smirking as she watched it run off.
Suddenly a hand clamped around her mouth shocking her MMPH?!!! She shouted through it as suddenly she felt something wrap around her holding her arms and legs in place preventing her from moving. MMMPH! MMMPH! She shouted trying to get free when a voice whispered in her ear.
I wont harm you, The voice said to her and kissed her on the cheek softly. Ami began to feel herself drowsy and began to fall asleep as her strength left her and she feel unconscious. I will never harm you my love.
She was picked up by a pair of arms and her captor carrying Sailor Mercury disappeared with her taking her into a portal.
Ami began to regain consciousness when she found herself staring up at the ceiling of a room. It was a stone ceiling and she felt herself lying on a comfy bed, far more comfortable than her own or any bed she had ever slept on, as if fit for a Queen.
Oh! Your up at last. A female voice said and she lifted her head up and saw a middle aged woman with brown hair and purple eyes wearing a maids outfit approaching her. Here, have some tea. She offered her
Thank you. Ami said drowsily as she took the cup without hesitating and took a sip of it. She smiled as it was her favorite brew. Coincidence it mustve been. She took another sip and looked at the maid when her eyes widened at what she saw.
AHHHH!! She shouted in shock dropping the cup.
What? Whats the matter? The woman asked her.
You got a tail!! She said pointing at her as instead of a pair of legs she had a long black colored tail. What are you?!
Im a Naga, or Lamia if you prefer the proper term since Im a female silly. The woman said with a smile.
Naga? Lamia? Ami said as she remembered the terms. Creatures that had the upper body of a man or woman and the lower half of a snake. They were just Mythological creatures, but then again with all shes seen ever since she became a Sailor Scout and learned about her former life she shouldnt be that surprised to see one.
Since you are uncomfortable with how I look I suppose I can change my appearance. The maid said and she said a few words she didnt understand and transformed and in place of her tail she had a pair of legs surprising Ami wondering how she did that. Some of us can look like you humans without you ever guessing who we really are.
Amazing, Ami said looking on.
Now cmon, theres someone who wants to see you. The Maid said to her urging her to get up.
Ami got off the bed and straightened out her Fuku outfit as she was still wearing it and followed the Maid out of the room. She was amazed at what she saw, she saw dozens of them. Men, Women, and Children in the Area as she followed after her. She looked on at them and if it wouldnt be considered rude would scan them with her computer just so she could see what they were all about. Maybe later when she got the chance as she walked around the large Castle. She peered out a window and saw a city with several thousand Nagas there some with tails and some walking on legs. Just where was she?
As they walked they passed by a large library and it took a lot of willpower not to go in there and start reading them.
In here, The maid said to her mentioning to a door. She reached over and opened it and mentioned for her to go in. Ami looked on at her not sure if she should go in but after taking a deep breath and counting to five stepped in.
The door was closed behind her after she got in. She looked around and she saw standing in the room a young man who looked about a year or two older than her clad in a light green outfit. He had brown hair and blue eyes and a smile was on his face as he looked on at her.
Who are you? Ami asked him.
Welcome Ami, or Sailor Mercury my name is Eraqus. The man said and stepped forward and taking her hand in his brought it up and kissed it causing a blush to form on her face. I am the ruler of this realm you are in. The Naga Realm, a realm unknown to the Earthlings where our kind live.
Can you transform as well? Ami asked him as he was rather handsome and charming.
Yes I am a Naga as well, but if you prefer I can stay like this. Our kind isnt well accepted in most places so we pose as humans to blend in. He said to her and it reminded her of The Monsters that had posed as humans She and The Others had fought against but he and the others didnt seem threatening.
Why? She asked him looking on at him. Why did you bring me here? She asked him. Why did you take me from my friends and home, why did you kidnap me? Ami asked him looking him in the eye.
I apologize for doing so but it was the only way I could bring you here was to do so, so I can show you this. He said and took her by the hand and gently lead her to a painting that was covered up by a cloth.
What is it? Sailor Mercury asked curiously and he reached out and pulled the cloth away revealing what was on it. Her eyes widened at what she saw not believing what was before her eyes.
See the resemblance? Eraqus asked her as standing in the painting was them, no it wasnt her. It was her past life. Back when she was a Princess of Mercury and ally of Sailor Moon and Queen Serenity. That was eons ago Luna had told her and she had been reincarnated into Sailor Mercury.
We were lovers in the past my love, Eraqus said to her. Before Queen Beryl had destroyed all we were once lovers as you were going to be my bride. We have been reincarnated into the same ones so long ago as we are them. He told her who looked on at the painting as there was no denying it, that was her. The girl in the picture wearing the dress was her, or her past self who she once was to be exact. For many years since I was reborn I had been waiting and searching for you and now I finally found you and we can be together once again.
I dont believe it Ami said looking on as it was so much to take in. She had no idea that this had happened before in her past.
We were lovers before when you was the Princess of Mercury and I have waited so long for us to be together again. Eraqus said to her stroking her hair with the back of his hand. We can finally be together and nothing will tear us apart. Our love will be eternal and never ending. He said taking her hands in his as he smiled at her. He leaned forward as if he was about to kiss her.
Ami pulled away from him much to his surprise. Whats wrong?
Im sorry, Sailor Mercury said to him shaking her head regretfully as he seemed like a nice person. But that was a different time and that was a different person, I not the girl you fell in love with. I have my own life now. She told him backing away.
What? He said in disbelief.
Please forget about me, dont cling onto the past or what happened then. Im not that girl who you believe you are in love with. Im flattered that you think Im that girl in the painting but Im not. Let me go home. She said turning to walk away out of the room.
No Eraqus said to himself watching her go. He didnt believe this was happening, how could she just abandon him and his love for her? He watched her and his anger began to grow throughout his body at what was going on. Your not leaving me Ive waited too long! He said silently with a hiss as anger flared through his eyes.
Ami was about to open the door when she sensed something, a dark presence.
She gasped when something slammed into the door blocking her exit
He was in his true form now, his long reptilian body which was white and scaly. This was his true appearance as he had a feral look in his eyes at the fact she wouldnt love him the way he loved her.
Ami realizing she was in danger quickly activated her powers and channeling water created a large orb and threw it at him. He dodged it showing great agility and slithered at her
He lashed out at her with his tail and tripped her up causing her to fall to the ground. His tail snaked around her waist and picked her up off the floor and began to wrap her up with his coils holding her and binding her legs and arms to her side
Let me go! Sailor Mercury shouted at him trying to get free. She struggled but couldnt get free and a cry escaped her as she was squeezed by him as he brought her to him. He cupped her face and forced her to look at him the two staring into each others eyes.
Im sorry Ami, but you leave me no choice my love. He said and suddenly his eyes began to glow.
W-What are- She started to say when she felt something come over her as she looked into them. She stared into his eyes and felt something happening to her as she looked into his pupils as they glowed and her own began to glow as well glowing different colors and shapes and spirals in her blue eyes from it.
Her struggling body slowly began to relax as she stopped squirming. He looked at her a solemn look on his face she forced him use his hypnosis powers that his kind had and his powers were far greater than a normal Naga or Lamia being the Ruler.
After a minute had passed and Sailor Mercury was no longer struggling he loosened his coils and grip around her as it was not needed anymore. He looked at her as she looked up at him with adoration and love in her eyes now as he had used it to make her love him. He had preferred her to love on her own but he was not going to be denied the two of them together again, he had waited too long for it.
My love. He said softly stroking her head with his tail and she let out a moan as she stared lovingly at him.
He kissed her and Sailor Mercury sighed in pleasure and began to return it her arms around him as it felt right like this. Like they belonged together.
The next day
Many were inside the large building, male and female, young and old. Some were in a human form whilst others were as Nagas and Lamias. Hundreds had gathered here to witness what was going to happen today.
Clad in a white Tuxedo and his long hair put in a ponytail in his Human form Eraqus stood at the front with a Naga dressed in Priest robes beside him.
He looked on and his smile grew when he saw a person appear at the far end making her entrance all eyes on her.
Clad in a blue wedding dress and a veil covering her face with a bouquet in her hand and her as a necklace, Ami a smile on her face began the walk up the aisle to join him in Matrimony.
