who are you?
who am I?
Every since you remember waking up on that fateful day, that questions has plagued you. Trailing you like a haze, a fog you just can't escape. Because you don't know the answer. Your parents died on your sixth birthday in the middle of a car crash with you as the only survivor... or so you're told. How can you trust the doctors to tell you the truth?
They were probably lying.
'Chiba Mamoru' is the name that they gave you. It feels right and wrong at the same time. You don't know what to think. A part of you had heard that name before. Two friendly faces calling out to you with that name. Yet there was another. A blonde girl calling a different name sweetly and you knew her. You felt safe with her. But you couldn't hear the name clearly nor figure out who the girl was. For years you couldn't see her face.
Each time the dreams became clearer. Soon you could hear the girl call out another word; Crystal. She was asking for some sort of crystal... later you knew that she was telling you to 'Find the Legendary Silver Crystal'. Then you would wake up and reports of a 'Tuxedo Kamen' wandering around the city and immediately you knew.
It was you. You under the influence of those dreams.
As Tuxedo Kamen you were a vigilante searching for the 'Legendary Silver Crystal' and it felt like a dream itself. It was you, but in some sort of trance. Every time you would leave the costume you would remember, but it felt like someone else. Perhaps meeting Sailor Moon was destiny; a girl who you felt immediately attracted to. You knew her you were sure. But where...
You realized too late. After protecting Sailor Moon you knew who she was - and who you were. The girl from your dreams was Princess Serenity. She was your Serenity. And you... you were Endymion. The Prince of the Earth and your relationship with your beloved had caused a war between the Moon and the Earth. You had died protecting her... just as you were dying now. At least you got to see her one last time.
Suddenly you woke up and there was Sailor Moon, fighting against the shadow you assumed was the enemy. You had seen it before when you were Endymion and you wouldn't let history repeat itself. Not again. Sailor Moon needed your help; and you would help her. You would always help her. For as long as she needed you.
You would always need her.
Many battles would come, as would allies and friends. The one ally you would always remember best was Chibiusa... Small Lady. The daughter that you and Sailor Moon - your Usako - would meet in the future. Never would you let her get hurt; you would always be there for her.
You were a liar.
Chibiusa had returned to the future and you were going on an exchange program overseas. Leaving Tsukino Usagi was the hardest thing you had ever brought yourself to do, but you would never reach your destination. In a single flash of light everything was gone.
So were you.
