The night was quiet, velvety darkness stretching across the sky like a massive blanket for the planet. Barely a sound could be heard, except for the chirping of crickets outside, and the cries of various other animals awakening in the night, some piercing the night with their sweet calls. Inside the Tamashiino house, though, one person was not sleeping so quietly.
"Mmm..no..no..not again.." Karei muttered in her sleep, her face clearly showing her distress, contorted into a mixture of fear, pain, and anger. She whipped her head back and forth as images began to fill her head.
They had been coming over the past week or so, but only in the blurred sense. Before, s she hadn’t been able to make sense out of any of them. Damn visions, she had thought, can’t they just make it all clear when they come to me?! Now here she was a mere week later and they were coming again, but this time these visions were becoming clearer.
...A crawling shadow creeping up towards a shining kingdom...A towering kingdom made of the purest gold lead by a woman with black hair and cruel looking blue eyes, twelve colored stars blinking above her head and a staff of gold in her hands...then Crystal Tokyo against a blue sky stained with violet...
Then the flashing pictures stopped and changed to a calmer looking scene. Karei was standing in the middle of a grassy field, trees surrounding her on all sides, waving in the slight breeze that was in this place. Not a trace of any other human life, besides herself, could be seen. She glanced down at her feet and noticed a small white daisy sticking out of the ground. One speck of a companion, if a flower could be called that. A hand reached out to brush fingertips against the soft petals, but just as she was about to, the flower began to shine with a prismatic light.
It grew until it took on the shape of a being made of the same rainbow light, the colors bleeding over its clothes and back again. Karei couldn’t tell if it was male or female, but she watched anyway with a careful eye. This wasn’t a threatening thing, more or like it had been waiting for someone to come and visit it. Its form shifted and she realized that it was an arm that was raising up, a finger pointing at her and a voice that was neutral but carried with it an authoritative tone.
“Daughter of the Fire Star, listen well, for I come bearing a prophecy! The Time of Change is coming, and all must be prepared. Celestial Stars have woken from their long slumber, called by the one who is trailed by a Golden Shadow. They weave their way ‘round this Sacred Star, causing Chaos in their footsteps. Greedy hands gather the power, the one who is trailed by a Golden Shadow holds the Key to destruction, its jewels will be the sirens that shall scream for death before the end. Break not the Line, and awaken those who will fight! Delay and Death will be your reward, either by the Golden Shadow or by Silence itself!”
And then the shining figure began to shrink, loosing all form as it turned back into the white daisy that it had been born from. Karei stood there staring at the flower, her body shaking under the information that she had received. The flower began to wilt and die, its purpose completed. The whole land dissolved into a shower of sparks, covering the land in light as she was pulled out of the dream and back into reality. Karei sat up in bed with a gasp, her dark hair matted to the sides of her face, panting heavily. She blinked a few times before looking over to her husband to see if he had woken up at all. Thankfully he hadn't. She sat there and composed herself for a minute before tossing the covers back and crawled out of bed slowly, making her way over to her dresser top where her henshin pen and the Shinka sat. The light from the Moon outside was streaming in through the open windows and shined on the bracelets, giving them a silvery white glow.
"We are never given any time to enjoy peace. The blood of Senshi runs through the chosen, swifter than the wind and for that evil forces will seek us out, attempting to usurp our peaceful lives." Karei wondered aloud, shutting her eyes briefly. Things seemed to be going well, her music career was going all right, and Hitomi was growing up as well as could be expected. She had hoped that after the defeat of Solana, things would be peaceful, that the Senshi could all lead normal lives...but now…a voice inside of her was saying that it was time.
Time to awaken those who would save this world.
