It has been years since the battle with Galaxia. In the 30th Century, the people lived for hundreds of years, even thousands, because of Neo Queen Serenity and the power of the Ginzuishou. The Senshi were all leading normal lives but they knew that true peace would only be attained when Serenity ascended the throne. Serenity still could not believe that one day she would be queen of Earth. However, those days were still along way off, as Chibi-Usa had not been born yet.
After the last great battle with Galaxia, Usagi started calling herself Serenity. Sometimes Serenity could not believe that she and Mamoru had been married for so long now. It seemed like only yesterday they had gotten married. Serenity took care of the house while Mamoru finished school. Mamoru became a doctor and opened a practice with Ami. Serenity and Mamoru were as happy as newlyweds were and, although the other Senshi has not married yet, everyone was happy.
Serenity smiled as she thought about everyone Rei and Yuuichirou at the temple, Ami and Urawa, Matoko that insisted she did not need a man yet everyone knew she did. Mina was still rotating boyfriends often and, of course, there was Haruka and Michiru. Pluto was around occasionally but mainly stood at her position guarding the time gate. Chibi-Usa had gone back to the 30th century to be with her parents and friends.
One night, Serenity was lying in bed beside Mamoru as she drifted off to sleep. She and Mamoru were walking along a forest trail holding hands and talking about their future. Mamoru smiled down at her as he embraced her tightly. He leaned into kiss her when a whirlwind of Sakura petals that smelled so sweet surrounded them. When the petals disappeared, Serenity was all alone looking around frantically for Mamoru.
All of the sudden there was a girl that looked just like Serenity standing in front of her. Beside her stood Mamoru, who had his arms around the look-alike who was smiling wickedly at Serenity.
"Mamoru shall no longer be yours, said the girl tauntingly.
The look-alike looked up at Mamoru loving. He smiled and leaned down to kiss her. While they kissed, there was black lighting crackling everywhere in the sky.
Waking up in a cold sweat and crying, Serenity tried to calm herself down and go back to sleep, but she could not. Serenity left the room and went downstairs careful not to wake Mamoru.
Sitting on the couch for a few minutes, she said, "It was only a dream, nothing to worry about. Galaxia is gone and is no longer a threat."
Luna perked up and replied sleepily "Serenity. Are you still worried about losing Mamoru? You two have been destined to be together since the Silver Millennium and have been married for years. He does not even look at other women. Your marriage is safe and so is your happiness."
"I know Luna, but sometimes this all just seems too good to be true, Serenity said to her friend. Smiling as she remembers how strange, it felt in the beginning to have conversation with a cat that could actually talk back and understand her.
After Serenity calmed down, she went to get a drink of water from the kitchen as Luna went back to sleep on the couch. Serenity headed back upstairs to the bathroom to splash water on her face before going back to bed.
Mumbling to herself that she was not like Rei and her dreams were nothing more than that, dreams! She looked in the mirror after wiping her face dry and screamed.
The girl from Serenity's dream was staring back at her in the mirror...
