The world was not right; it had not been in balance since Sailor Pluto reversed time to cover up her mistakes. Eons had passed but those attuned to the natural flow knew something was wrong. Autumn knew it, as did Paige, but life moved foreword. Time marched on, and soon new friends showed up, new senshi ready to take up the torch of goodness. Paige and Autumn set up an academy; to help, to teach the new and seasoned senshi useful skills. It was going well, but there had been no real tests in many years.
Autumn sat reading by the fire, she had read the same page at least five times. The combination of the music, and her psychic skills opened up her mind to see, and feel. She felt cold and saw an empty expanse of space.
"Something is coming." She thought.
The empty expanse was heavy, void of everything, yet brimming with everything. If she still breathed, she knew she would be feeling like she was being suffocated. She felt icy pressure threatening to crush every molecule in her body.
"It is coming." She thought again.
The darkness was not still, there was fluttering, and other movements. She felt sadness, calmness, pride, happiness, and even love. These were not her emotions, Autumn felt confusion, and trepidation. Out of the darkness a figure stepped forth, menacing and not of Earth, but Autumn only saw the swirling black holes threatening to draw them all in to their ends.
Autumn stood up and her tome crashed to the floor; she blinked and looked around her. The fire cracked and popped, and all around her her cats looked at her their fur puffed, they felt it too.
"It's...no, they are coming." She said to them.
She closed her eyes and thought of her friends, and the young senshi, would they be ready for this?
"They'll have to be." She mumbled.
She headed outside and henshined, Shi Senshi crouched in her yard, her spear held in the crook of her left arm. She threw her senses out trying to come to grips with the new dangers about to alight on Earth.
