Legend of the Moon Queen, chapter 5
Chapter 5, Saiyan style
Rei was floating in strange green goo, inside the medical machine. The semi-liquid substance was restoring her strength and soothing her wounds. Indulging in sleep was not in her programs though.
Since coming in this strange world, her perceptions were strangely warped. This would have been the perfect opportunity to meditate and cleanse her spirit. Despite the breathing apparatus she had to put on, she whispered her Shinto prayers, rapidly falling in a deep meditative state.
She knew her sensations were still with her. During her fight with that little cabbage-head monster she managed to 'feel' it in a way she was never capable of back on earth. Yet, she was having problems with her usual precognitions. She suspected the saiyan instincts for fighting were involved somewhat. In combat, she knew of the little monster attacks the instant it thought of them. But she was incapable of making sense of the entire situation. It was the opposite of her normal capa

Chapter 4, Put to the test.
Rei, the only one of them still standing, nodded nervously to the huge Saiyan's proposal. Better to fight later than being killed now. She moved to help her friends, but Captain Nappa had other ideas.
"Pick up these idiots, you four! Bring them to the testing arena number five." He barked to the soldiers.
"Yes sir!" They immediately obeyed, lifting Minako, Usagi, Ami and Jean in the air. The captain took hold of Makoto's ankle and grabbed Rei by the wrist, then took flight.
"Ouch! You are hurting me!" Being suspended in midair by her wrist was very painful. But the worst suffering was reserved for Makoto, who had a serious flying phobia, having her parents died in a plane crash. "Ohh, let me down, please! Let me down!" She was almost crying from pain and fear.
"Cease your pitiful whining woman! Or I will reconsider my decision and kill you on the spot!" The cruel man landed after a few minutes of flying, throwing them in a heap of bodies. They were br

Chapter three: Creature comforts
"What's that? Did you hear it?" Usagi stopped crying, her hairs standing up straight from fear.
Minako tried to take a look at the beast out of the window, to no avail due to the deep darkness. "An animal of some kind... maybe as hungry as we are. Lucky us, we are safe here, at the third floor!"
"Minako, beware! Don't stick out of the window! You are against the light!" Shouted Ami trying to catch her friend and yank her back.
A great dark shape jumped more than seven meters up from the square floor, smashing against the concrete wall of the building. Huge claws scraped at the window, trying to support the enormous weight of the beast. A hideous, fanged snout snapped at Minako, missing her barely!
She fell backwards over Ami, shouting nervously. "Eek! Stay away from me!" She took a burning stick from the bonfire, throwing it towards the slavering muzzle.
The beast bit again, this time chewing on the improvised torch, completely ignoring the fire!

Strangers in a strange land.
Trying Again to get up, Usagi was breathing heavily. "Anyone feeling weak? I'm so heavy I cannot even stand!" she sat on the hard soil, wondering where they ended up.
"I don't think we are weak, Usagi." replied Ami. "We are probably on a high density planet. Remember the gravity field Rubeus used against us three years ago? The effects are quite similar, if not equally strong." Her friends nodded understanding.
Makoto managed to stand up unsteadily, thanks to her greater strength. She looked around, then made a surprised expression. "Usagi! Your hair... is black! Totally black! Minako's too!"
The two girls immediately examined their precious blonde hair, turned straight and raven black. "I'm going to transform into Rei! Aieee!" yelled Usagi, looking terrified.
Her reaction obviously made Rei angry. "Then you will acquire some brains, you idiot!" she yelled back at her.
"How it is possible?" asked Minako, distraught with the occurrence but keeping a c
Legend of the Moon Queen, Chapter 1
It started as a normal day in Juuban town. Amidst the crowd a group of four girls was waiting in front of a newly opened sweet shop.
"Uff! Rei is late! I want to eat the new 'triple size chocolate cake'! Why is she late? I can't resist anymore, I'm going in!" said Tsukino Usagi, age 17, almost crying.
Three other girls were patiently enduring their friend's tantrums, so accustomed they were. One of them, Mizuno Ami, tried to calm her friend.
"Usagi-chan, please, you know Rei-chan must walk here from another school. She will be here shortly." she said embarrassed.
"But... aww, i skipped my after-school snack to make room for this shop special cake! I'm starving!" replied Usagi still crying.
Makoto and Minako, the remaining two girls, sighed smiling. Usagi never stopped surprising them with her ability to put herself in embarrassing situations. Fortunately for them Rei, the missing girl, finally showed up.
"Oh, at least! Rei-chan, you are awfully late! Let's go inside, h
