|Across the city, girls were
staring at reflections of themselves. "Who's the most beautiful
world?" asked a woman's voice.
"It's you of course," replied a man's voice. Nehelenia's shadow flitted across the mirrors.
|Trista, Amara, Michelle, and
Hotaru were watching the morning TV news. The news anchor was reporting
new disease had appeared amongst women that caused loss of energy. He
said it was thought to be a new mental disease caused by stress.
"The white moon is covered by a dark shadow," Hotaru repeated her earlier prophecy to herself, "The blonde hair that shines with that light is attacked by an evil wish."
|The four women began discussing
the recent strange events.
Michelle commented that the monsters they had fought were like
mirrors. She looked into her talisman mirror and saw a vision of
Darien, with a shadow behind him. Then the vision was gone.
|Serena and Mina were running
through the halls of their high school, late as usual. The girls came
across a long-haired boy staring into a mirror. Serena started yelling
that he would be late too but he ignored her. Mina said Serena didn't
time to worry
about other people and dragged Serena away. The boy had the same
strange golden glint in his right eye that Darien had.
||Serena and Mina finally arrived
at their classroom where they were greeted by Lita and Amy. Lita
and Amy told Mina and Serena that the class was having a free study
it didn't matter that they were late. The reason for the study period
was that all the
teachers had gone to an emergency meeting. Mina and Serena
worried that maybe the meeting was about punishing tardy students. Amy
said it wasn't. It was because many students were
absent. Serena thought it could be influenza. But Amy said that
many girls had been waking up with no energy and were
not coming to school. Mina said she had heard about it on TV that
morning. Amy said that if Mina had time to watch morning TV then she
shouldn't be late for school.
||Lita noticed a girl standing
alone in the hallway staring into a compact make-up mirror. Serena went
over and tried
to talk to her but the girl ignored Serena completely. Serena snatched
the mirror from the girl and looked into it herself. "There
doesn't seem to be anything unusual about it," she said.
Suddenly, dark smoke began to swirl within the mirror. The smoke streamed upwards towards Serena's face. Lita noticed and sprinted down the hallway. She slapped the mirror from Serena's hands and it broke upon the floor. Everyone was a little stunned. Lita explained that she had seen some strange power coming from the mirror, but realized immediately how strange that sounded. The other girl said nothing but looked very sad as she picked up her broken compact. Lita apologized and offered to give her own compact as a replacement. But surprisingly, the girl said since her mirror was broken she had nothing left to live for! A golden glint flickered in the girl's eye. Serena saw it and realized it was the same as what she had noticed in Darien, but she didn't say anything to the other girls about it.
