Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon: Infinity
Act 02 – Meeting of the two: Guardian and Sailor Senshi

“You’re absolutely sure that she said she was a Guardian?” Serena asked Taiki the next day before school.

He nodded. “She was even dressed like you.”

“She introduced herself as Ai to seigi no bishoujo senshi, gaadian sutaaraabu! Kinzuishou to mugendai kawatte, oshiokyo.She had a cat with her. ‘Mio-chan’, she called him.”

Tyler’s face went white. “Did you say ‘kinzuishou to mugendai kawatte’?” Taiki nodded. “Oh, stars. It’s her. It’s really her.” Tyler sighed in relief, collapsing into her chair in the classroom.

“Who? Who is she?” Seiya asked.

“It’s Andalrien. She’s safe.”

“So, who’s this ‘Mio-chan’?” Ami asked.

“Her protector. His name is Miocci. He’s along the same lines as Luna and Artemis. He does become human when he needs to, but not often.”

Minako ran up to them, out of breath. “You wouldn’t believe what I’ve just heard!”

“No doubt you’re going to tell us anyway,” Yaten commented.

Minako stuck her tongue out at him. “I heard that Hizashi Shinami is attending Muguen Gakuen!”

Usagi, Ami, and Makoto stared. “No way!” They said in unison.

Minako nodded. “That’s what the rumor is. Another source says that she’s living in the same area as Haruka and is sharing a house with Tsukino Himitsu.”

“Tsukino Himitsu?” Usagi’s eyes went all starry. “I loved her last movie. She’s so pretty!”

“Where did you hear this?” Makoto asked.

“At the Crown, of course.”

“So, did you get your homework done last night, Shinami?” Hotaru asked before the bell rang.

“Most of it. I didn’t understand the last few questions.”

“Neither did I,” Hotaru said, relieved. “I’m glad I’m not the only one. Mr. Yamamoto said that he’d be going over them today.”

“Kaiou and Tenno are taking me to visit their friends at Juuban after school today. I’m a bit nervous, and it would make me feel better if you were along.”

“I’d love to come. It’s been a while since I saw Usagi and the others. Did you know that the Three Lights go to that school?”

Shinami shook her head. “I heard that they were going to a school in Tokyo, but I never knew which one. I’ve only ever met one, and that was Yaten. I co-starred in a movie with him recently. He’s very cold.”

“He’s like that until he gets to know you,” Hotaru said. “But, I don’t know Yaten that well, so I don’t really know what he’s like.”

“So, you’ll come with me?” Hotaru nodded. “I’m so glad you’re my friend, Hotaru!”

Usagi and the others walked out of school. Rei joined them. They were planning on going to the Crown for a snack, when Haruka’s car pulled up in front of the school. Haruka, Hotaru, Michiru, and a strange blond girl climbed out of the car.

“Yo, Odango,” Haruka said, greeting the girl with the weird hairstyle.

“Hi, Haruka, Michiru, Hotaru-chan,” she replied politely. “What brings you here?”

“I want to introduce you to a friend of ours.” Haruka ushered Shinami forward. “This is Hizashi Shinami. Shinami, meet my friends Tsukino Usagi, Mizuno Ami, Hino Rei, Kino Makoto, and Aino Minako. Rei goes to a different school. The other three are the Three Lights, Seiya Kou, Taiki Kou, and Yaten Kou.”

“I recognized Yaten, but I didn’t remember which of the other two was which,”Shinami said.

The inners stared. “I don’t believe it,” Usagi said. “You were right, Minako-chan.”

“I was, wasn’t I?” Minako quickly recovered by askingShinami for her autograph. “You want to come to the Crown with us? Our other friends are there. They're foreign exchange students.”

Shinami looked at Haruka and Michiru. “Can we?” she asked.

Michiru nodded. “It’s been a while since we’ve talked with them, so I don’t see why not. Run on ahead, we’ll catch up.”

Minako and Usagi each took one of Shinami’s arms. “You’ll love the crown.” Minako said grinning.

Shinami got a sweat drop on the side of her head. Who are these strange girls? They all have incredible auras, though not on the level that Tenno and Kaiou have. And certainly not at the level that my friends do.



Tyler glanced at her watch for the umpteenth time. She sighed and leaned back in her seat. “They're late,” she commented. Serena shook her head. “Something probably came up. Knowing Usagi-chan, she probably got another detention.” Tyler snorted. “Don’t do that. You sound like a horse.”

“Whatever, Serena.”

“Look!” Skye said, pointing out the window. “What’s that?”

The others joined her at the window. Sure enough, it was Cheetah, attacking a young man on the sidewalk in front of the crown.

“Let's go!” Serena said. “Water Cosmic Power...”

“Earth Cosmic Power...”

“Leo Cosmic Power...”

“Air Cosmic Power...”

“Wind Cosmic Power...”

“MAKE UP!”

“Hold it right there!” a gruff voice called out. “For truth and light, I am the senshi of the life source, Guardian StarLight. On behalf of the Earth Mother, I will defeat you!”

“For the joy of song, I am the senshi of music, Guardian StarSinger. On behalf of the Water Sister, I will chastise you!”

“For beauty and joy, I am the senshi of duplicity, Sailorstardancer. In the name of the stars of Gemini, I will kick your ugly butt all over the stars!”

“For beauty and love, I am the senshi of gentle breezes, Sailorsstardreamer. In the name of the stars of Gemini, you’re star dust!”

“In the name of Sheratan's fire, I will right the wrongs you have committed, for I am SunArrow.”

“Well, well, well. You again,” Cheetah purred, setting the unconscious young man on the ground and turning to face them. “I thought that you’d be too occupied trying to find that pathetic fire senshi to bother with us.”

“Looks like you were wrong,” StarLight said, smirking. “You’re nothing without Tyger, Obsidian, or Diamond to back your sorry tails up.”

“That’s what you think. Talisman Reveal!” Cheetah said, pointing her clawed talon at the man’s throat. A glowing golden shape emerged from a blossom, but quickly faded to a dull, lifeless black. “I thought I had it this time. Oh, well. Koinu-chan, take care of these meddlesome senshi for me, will you dearest? Sayonara!” She disappeared, leaving them to face the beast. The dog-like yahrai grinned.

Just then, the senshi showed up. Eternalsailormoon didn’t even bother with her usual speech. “So, this is what you guys went up against?” she asked the Starlights, who nodded.

“Duck! Leo Fire Burn!” SunArrow said, sending a lion of fire charging at Koinu. He yelped as his tail got singed.

“Oh, you’ll pay for that one,” he growled, sending things that looked like dog bones at the senshi. They exploded, destroying whatever they hit. They made holes in the pavement.

“Virgo Aquatic Swirl!” Mercury said, sending a ball of ice-cold water at the dog-thing.

“Pisces Sparkling Tsunami!”

“Aquarius Rumbling Wave!”

“Scorpio Time Twist!”

“Capricorn Silence Shatter!”

Koinu dogged attack after attack. His attacks were seriously starting to hurt the senshi, even the Guardians, who were used to it were starting to wear down.

“Air Whip!” a young girlish voice shouted, blocking Koinu’s attack, which was aimed at StarLight. “Ai to seigi no bishoujo senshi, gaadian sutaaraabu! Kinzuishou to mugendai kawatte, Oshiokyo!”

“You again!” Starhealer said, looking at the girl as she landed gracefully in front of the Guardians, helping StarLight to her feet.

“Shi'iilnyen, are you alright?” the girl asked, ignoring Starhealer.

“Why are you calling me that?” Starlight looked up at this bizarre girl. "Andalrien?"

StarLove looked at her, blue eyes wide open. She nodded. “Who else would it be? Himitsu promised that I’d be all right.”

“She did, didn’t she,” Starsinger said, walking over. “Behind you, Starlight.”

“Earth Healing Light!” she shouted, returning the boy back to his regular self.

“Would somebody please explain what’s going on here?” Uranus asked impatiently.

“Everyone, we’d like to introduce you to the fourth member of our group. This is Guardian Starlove, High Princess Andalrien Lapteth Hofrek Goldenstar of Kinshei, Guardian of Air. This little fellow here,” Starsinger said, picking a gray cat up off of the ground. “Is Miocci.”

“It's nice to meet you all,” StarLove said, smiling. Miocci meowed.
