The Land of the Midnight Sun Serena awoke to the sound of the telephone ringing. She turned over, and hit it, thinking it was an alarm clock. It fell to the floor, and the receiver came off the hook. Darien picked it up, and answered. "We're up." He hung up, and placed the phone on the night-stand. "Serena..." "Unh.." "Serena, it's time to get up." "Just five more minutes," Serena mumbled. At this time, James knocked on the door, and Darien let him in. "Rise and shine, little girls!" Amy bolted up. "Oh my Gosh! What time is it?!" "Eight thirty." "Serena, wake up!" Amy yelled. "I'm up," mumbled the blond-haired girl. She then realized that she and Amy were in Sailor Soldier uniform. "Were we--" "Yes," James said, cutting Sailor Moon off. "You have been like that ever since we left Japan." "Oh well," Darien said. "Who cares?" Serena looked at him with an expression that clearly meant "What the hell?" "Let's just go," Darien said. He walked out the door of the hotel room. Serena, Amy, and James went down to the lobby, and checked out. All four of them, Serena, Amy, James, and Darien, then went to the private jet. * * * Katarina watched the Sailor Soldiers, James, and Darien, board the jet. She was smiling wickedly. "That's it. Come to your doom." Her commander/lover appeared behind her. "They are on their way?" "Yes, Lord Perro." Lord Perro put his hand on Katarina's left shoulder. "Good work." Lord Perro disappeared. "After I get that Love Star, I'm gonna waste these Sailor Brats!" Katarina laughed as she saw the jet leave. * * * "Darien, why are you on the plane?" Sailor Moon asked. "Someone has to guide you, and make sure you're safe." "I only have one question," Sailor Mercury said. "Where exactly are we gonna land this plane?" Sailor Moon and Darien had no answer to that question. Darien walked to the cockpit. "James," he said while poking his head inside. "Where are we gonna land this thing?" "The plane has landing gear for every type of terrain. The only thing that will keep us from landing properly is if we run out of fuel and crash." "Oh, okay." Darien walked back to Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury, and told them what James had told him. * * * Katarina watched Darien closely. She had been doing so ever since the jet left for Alaska. She also heard everything he and who else was around him said. She had heard James tell Darien how he could land the plane. "Just wait until you get to Alaska. You're gonna wish you had never been born." Katarina laughed maniacally. She watched the plane enter an icy area. "It's almost here." Katarina disappeared. * * * Katarina appeared on the icy tundra that was below a fast moving jet. She looked up at it, and smiled. "Have fun, kiddies." Katarina raised her right hand, and sent an invisible wave of energy hurling at the jet. She then heard a loud boom, and saw the jet begin to spin out of control. Katarina disappeared. * * * "Oh shit! Hold on!" James yelled as the jet spun out of control. He jerked the control stick around, trying to gain control. He finally did, but the fuel tank had been hit, and he was going to have to make a crash landing. James glided the jet down to the icy tundra, and made a landing. It was terrible, though. The nose of the aircraft skidded across the frozen surface, and then the rest of the aircraft skidded, causing sparks to fly everywhere. The plane's occupants were bashed against the sides of the aircraft, and finally it skidded to a halt. Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, and James were sore. Darien was glad he was dead for once. "Let's get out of here," James said. He went to the only door, and tried to open it. He was unsuccessful. "It's jammed." "I have an idea," Sailor Mercury said. "Mercury Ice Bubbles, Freeze!" The door froze, and one swift kick from the blue haired girl made it fly loose. "OK. Let's go." The group of four set out to locate the portal Darien had found. It was too bad that the scenery was exactly the same for miles on end. * * * The two Sailor Soldiers, James, and Darien, who was now in Tuxedo Angel form, wandered about aimlessly in the cold, desolate area. They had only been there for a minute, and already they were ready to freeze to death, with the obvious exception of Tuxedo Angel. Just as they were about ready to bite the dust, or in this case, bite the ice, Tuxedo Angel spotted something. It was the portal! "Up there," Tuxedo Angel shouted as he pointed straight ahead. "Let's go!" James shouted over the howling of the wind. They moved as fast as they could, so as not to stay where the temperature was 45 degrees below zero. When they reached the portal, the immediately jumped in. The last thing James thought was *It's OK. I'll wake up soon.* * * * Katarina stood facing her three captives. She knew that the remaining Sailor Soldiers were on their way. She also knew that they had the Love Star with them. "Guess what, Sailor Brats! Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury have just signed all of your death certificates!" "Oh really," Sailor Mars said as she raised her right eyebrow. "I think she has signed our release forms." "We'll see about that," Katarina said before disappearing. "Don't worry," Sailor Mars said. * * * Sailor Moon's eyes widened at the site of Katarina appearing before her. She had expected to search for Katarina, not Katarina come to her. "Hello, Sailor Moon, and welcome to my humble abode. I hope you like it." "Cut the crap! Let's just get this over with!" shouted Sailor Moon. "Ha! You're not so much of a crybaby after all!" Katarina held out her hands. She began to chant. "Sih...car...narado...fuhg!" Sailor Moon was knocked backward, and was injured badly. "Nooo!" Tuxedo Angel shouted. No one noticed James slip a remote mine on the floor. Tuxedo Angel rushed to Katarina, and hit her so hard she fell backwards, and a bruise immediately appeared on her lower left jaw. "You...will...PAY!" Katarina let out a shrill scream, causing everybody else to cover their ears, or have their eardrums get busted. The scream was so loud that the walls shook. Tuxedo Angel, no longer able to feel pain, took out a rose, and threw it. It hit Katarina in the mouth, causing her to temporarily lose her ability to scream so loud. In fact, Katarina could no longer even speak. Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, and James let go of their ears. Sailor Moon then used her attack. "Moon...Scepter...Elimination!!!" Katarina dodged the blast successfully, and a large chunk of wall was destroyed. "Crap!" "I want that Love Star!" Katarina yelled, now able to use her powers again. She stared at Sailor Moon, and he eyes began to glow a light green. "Alla...shazam!" A light blue aura surrounded Sailor Moon, and all of her limbs became useless. The Love Star floated above Sailor Moon's head, and Sailor Mercury and James found that they were immobile. Tuxedo Angel leapt for the Love Star, but was too late. It vanished into thin air. Katarina laughed wickedly. "The Love Star now belongs to me, and soon it will be nothing more than fragments! See ya later!" Katarina disappeared. "Well," James said. "This sucks." James picked up the remote mine that he had placed on the floor. "I might need this later," he whispered. * * * Katarina appeared before Lord Perro. In her hand was the Love Star. He smiled at the sight. He held out his hand, and Katarina handed it over to him. "Now, my love," Lord Perro said. "We can destroy the world!" They both laughed, and looked at the Love Star. "Hello cruel world."
