PART 3: SURVIVOR
(A month after Part 2: Damaged)

Usagi sat on the witness stand, completely healed from what Mamoru had done to her.


= Now that you're out of my life
I'm so much better
You thought that I'd be weak without you
But I'm stronger
You thought that I'd be broke without you
But I'm richer
You thought that I'd be sad without you
I laugh harder
You thought I wouldn't grow without you
Now I'm wiser
Though that I'd be helpless without you
But I'm smarter
You thought that I'd be stressed without you
But I'm chillin'
You thought I wouldn't sell without you
Sold 9 million =



** FLASHBACK **

"Do you have all you need for evidence against Chiba Mamoru?" Solace (Soldier Sun) coldly demanded of the doctors and police.

"Yes, we do..." Dr. Mizuno said hesitantly before asking, "Why?"

"Yea, why do you care?" Shingo demanded.

Solace ignored the questions and looked at Kafir (Soldier Saturn) and nodded his head. The normally cold Senshi of Death and Destruction looked relieved and hurriedly entered Usagi's hospital room.


= I'm a survivor (What?)
I'm not gon give up (What?)
I'm not gon stop (What?)
I'm gon work harder (What?)
I'm a survivor (What?)
I'm gonna make it (What?)
I will survive (What?)
Keep on survivin' (What?) =



"You can't go in there!!" Kenji and Dr. Mizuno exclaimed in unison.

Usagi's family, Senshi, Dr. Mizuno, and a couple of police detectives rushed after him. Solace calmly walked into the hospital room and watched in concealed amusement as Kafir healed all of Usagi's wounds by removing his gloves and placing his bare hands on Usagi's cheeks. He watched as their eyes grew wide when Kafir and Usagi were engulfed by a purple glow and Usagi's visible injuries vanished as though they never existed. He also watched as the glow subsided and Kafir collapsed to the floor...

** END FLASHBACK **

"Tsukino-san, can you please tell us your version of events on the night in question?" Mamoru's lawyer asked her.

Usagi suppressed a shudder and began to speak, "Well, I was getting out of school and my fiancé pulled up in his car and asked me if I wanted to go out tonight. I was thrilled because we haven't been able to spend much time together what with all the Youma attacks and all; it seemed every time we went on a date, some Youma would ruin it. So I told him I'd love to go out, I just had to ask my parents of it was OK and what time they wanted me home since it was a school night after all. They told me it was alright and to be home by eleven, not a second later...


= Thought I couldn't breathe without
I'm inhaling
You thought I couldn't see without you
Perfect vision
You thought I couldn't last without you
But I'm lastin'
You thought that I would die without you
But I'm livin'
Thought that I would fail without you
But I'm on top
Thought it would be over by now
But it won't stop
Thought that I would self destruct
But I'm still here
Even in my years to come
I'm still gon be here =


(A/N: during the flashback Usagi will still be telling the court what happened to her. Anything in {...} will be something Usagi does when she's talking to the court, not in the flashback.)

** FLASHBACK **

I hung up the telephone, smiling in complete joy. I turned to him and told him what my parents had said. {Usagi's fists clench as she continues.}

"That's great Usa-ko," he told me right before he punched me in the gut. As I doubled over, he slammed his other fist into my jaw. I landed on my back with enough force to knock the breath out of me. I lay there gasping for breath as he grabbed me by my hair and began dragging me to his bedroom. I regained my breath enough to scream in pain from him dragging me by the hair.

"Shut up, you stupid whore," he screamed at me as he kicked me in the ribs until I heard a loud snap and I felt immense pain in my ribs. {Her eyes fill with tears but she stubbornly refuses to let them fall.}

It hurt so much, but I could barely breath, much less scream. He picked me up by the front of my school fuku and threw me onto the bed. I tried to crawl away, but he grabbed me by my ankle and dragged me back towards him as he climbed onto the bed. He grabbed the front of my fuku and ripped it open. {Tears fall from her eyes and trail down her pale cheeks.} He grabbed my bra and broke the clasp in order to get it off me. I tried to kick him off of me, but he punched me again in the face, so hard it knocked the back of my head into the headboard of the bed. My vision went blurry and everything started to get dim. Everything moved as if it were in slow-motion until he hit me on the side of the head, screaming at me to paying to pay attention to him. Then I felt immense pain...down...there...{One of her hand points to her crotch as her pale, tear-stained cheeks turned a vivid crimson.}

** END FLASHBACK **

"...I passed out from the pain after that point. I came to when my pager went off. It was my friend Rei, she was worried about me since Kaa-chan and Tou-chan had called all of my friends, trying to find me. It was almost 2 am when I was able to put my shredded fuku on and hurried out of Mamoru's apartment," Usagi broke down and started sobbing as she spoke, "I had to go past the park to go home when a Youma attacked. Sailor Mars and Sailor Jupiter as well as Solace-san and Kafir-san took me to the hospital after Mamoru followed me and was about to hurt me again..."


= I'm wishin' you the best
Pray that you are blessed
Bring much success, no stress, and lots of happiness
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gon blast you on the radio
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gon lie on you and your family
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gon hate on you in the magazines
('m better than that)
I'm not gon compromise my Christianity
(I'm better than that)
You know I'm not gon diss you on the Internet
Cause my mama taught me better than that =



"Thank you, Tsukino-san. If the court permits it, that will be enough of a testimony from you," Mamoru's lawyer said to her, compassion in his voice. Up until hearing Usagi's testimony, he had believed Mamoru's tale of Tsukino-san merely being an ex-girlfriend who was blaming him for what her current boyfriend had done to her.

"The court permits it," the elderly judge agreed.

"With the permission of the court, may Tsukino-san be excused from the courtroom?" The young prosecuting attorney asked.

"Agreed, if the proper chaperon..." the judge began, only to halt when the tall, slender, dark form of Kafir simply stood, approached the witness stand and scooped the sobbing Usagi up into his arms and walked out of the courtroom.

"And that was...?" The Judge asked anyone in particular.

"That was Shino Kafir, sir. He's the one that healed Tsukino-san," the prosecutor said though she internally shivered. A person with a family name that meant 'of Death' must have earned it...

** The Hallway **

Kafir stood stoically as he cradled Usagi up in his arms, letting her cry on his broad shoulder.

"He's not worth them," Kafir said, his voice a quiet voice a near whisper.

"sniffle /Nani/?" Usagi asked as she looked up at the Soldier that cradled her close to his lean body.


= (Beyonce)
Oh (oh) oh (oh)... =


"Your tears. He's not worth them. A being like that is not a man. Not a real one anyways. A real man knows how to treat a real woman..." Kafir stopped speaking, embarrassed with himself for revealing so much. This was not how a Senshi of Death and Destruction acted.

"Really?" Usagi asked.

"/Hai/."

"Kafir-san...could you help me become stronger? So if Mamoru comes after me again, I can stand up for myself?" Usagi all but begged of him.


= After of all of the darkness and sadness
Soon comes happiness
If I surround my self with positive things
I'll gain prosperity =



"/Hai/, Usagi-hime. If you want to I will help you tomorrow after school."

"Doomo, Kafir-san," Usagi said as she dozed off into a nightmare riddled sleep.

'If you want them, I'll give you diamonds, pearls, the stars themselves...' Kafir thought to himself.
