The conversation with his guardian had been long one. The two hadn’t talked much lately and spent close to two hours catching up on things and making the plans for the girl’s hideaway in Herefordshire. He was more than welcome to open the house up for the Senshi, letting Jackson know that it had plenty of rooms for all of them. Between the bunk beds in one room and the double twins in another, they would have plenty of room to roam. And the large hedges would give them privacy. A stable had been put in the year before, so the 100 acre property would give the girls plenty to do. It seemed like a perfect situation. It was far enough away from the city that they would be well hidden, but close enough that they could teleport to the house to visit them.

The real problem was going to get the girls to agree to the holiday.

Jackson shot a quick text to Chloe before he took another shower. He’d taken a brief nap, catching up on about an hour of sleep before his alarm went off to call the lawyer guardian. The hot water felt good on his skin. And even though he didn’t really need another shower, it still felt good. But he still didn’t shave, the growing bread getting more and more impressive as it grew. It felt like a shield to him, something he could hide behind from the public. Maybe it would give him a simple disguise and the freedom to roam the street again. He doubted that he would be able to, but it was still a small piece of hope. He stayed until the hot water ran out, taking his time with everything he did. He wanted to give Aiden as much of a chance to sleep as he could. He owed him that, at least.

Jackson didn’t make a point to teleport very often. It was a skill that he was fairly good at, but it was energy draining. But now that he was going to be using it more, he figured he’d better get used to it. Maybe it was like exercise—the more you did it, the better you got at it. So he grabbed his phone and cup of coffee and teleported into the familiar apartment of Aiden West. The house was spotless, as usual. He remembered when his place looked like this, with everything in its place. Jackson smiled softly, unable to deny the feeling of home that washed over him. This place had become his second residence, getting to know the shitennou by spending time with him as often as possible. The connection between Aiden and Jack was a close one. He was by far the closest to the police officer than he had been with the rest of his generals. It didn’t make his relationships with the others any less important—just different.

He hoped the rest of his generals would be able to come. He didn’t know exactly what Alex had been doing since he had kept to himself with the death of his girlfriend. Leo was probably with Andy and would be hard pressed to join the rest of them. Seth would most likely come. It would be a relief to have them by his side once more. He took a seat on the couch, waiting for the rest to join him. Going to Elysian was going to be interesting. He had needed to talk with Helios for a while, had put it off because of work and his wedding. That couldn’t happen any longer. Jack needed to finally buckle down and accept his role as the future King of Earth. He could no longer just be Tuxedo Mask. He couldn’t sit back and watch. The stress was going to get to him, but he would figure out a way to deal with it. Endymion had always taken his frustration out on things, while Jackson made a point to just forget about it. He tried to keep the two sides of himself separate, needing the sanity it brought. Now, he would have to come to terms with it. He was Endymion. He would always be Endymion.

He settled into the couch, enjoying the warm coffee while the others joined him. He kept his thoughts light, knowing that the others could hear what he was thinking.

Did Aiden even know what sleep was anymore? In the Golden Kingdom it had been common for the General to get as little sleep as possible considering all of the things he did for the safety of the kingdom. And when the wars had been fought, and he was in the trenches with the troops, sleep had honestly been the last thought on his mind. However, sleep was a very important vessel for the general. If he didn't at least one hour of sleep he knew that he wouldn't be doing himself a favor. As powerful and willful as he was, he was also human. Kunzite knew that he couldn't head to Elysian without having rested for a bit, and Helios would surely scold him for not taking care of his body. Especially now when things were about to get all kinds of batshit crazy.

So the first thing Aiden had done when he had arrived in his apartment was collapse right into bed. It had not surprised him that Priya was still not there. Of course she would not be. The woman was driving him off the walls and at this point, he was beginning to not care. He could not be following a juvenile senshi around when he had so many things to think about. The safety of Endymion was his number one priority. The earth and it's people were number two. He needed to get a grip on the situation and fast so that he and the shitennou could live somewhat peaceful lives. This entire uproar was surely going to cause havoc on the streets and the last thing Kunzite needed was a riot on his hands. The sooner they got the senshi off the streets, the better. Lord knows it gave him agita to think of the senshi hurting citizens or vice versa.

His slumber, surprisingly, had been peaceful. Whether it was because his body was tired or Helios was giving him a hand, Aiden would not be able to tell you. He was only happy to have a moment to calm himself and take a breather. The last thing he needed was for the world to collapse while he was unprepared to do anything about it. He had woken up directly on the hour, that part of himself always being dominant with his hold of control. After getting up and stretching, he had felt infinitely better. Good. He and his prince would have a long day considering the things they had to speak with the priest of Elysian about. Aiden showered quickly and then changed into more comfortable clothing, jeans and a t-shirt suiting him just fine. Endymion and I are heading to Elysian to speak with Helios. It is imperative that you guys get to my apartment in fifteen minutes. If you don't plan on coming, then I shall leave orders with you for the time being. He sent to the other three shitennou, waiting for a response.

He didn't mind if they were coming or not. Whether they were there or not, the information was still going to get around. Still, it would have been nice to have them all there so he wouldn't have to repeat things more than once. And it would be nice to have a united front so the prince could feel a little bit better about how everything was going. Once he was done getting ready in the bedroom he had walked towards the living room and wasn't surprised to find Jackson there. He had felt him teleport inside a few minutes prior, proud that his skills were just gaining strength with each day that passed. This losing Aiden West and turning full time into Kunzite thing was surely happening fast. "We'll wait for fifteen minutes and then head on out." He had told the guys and they all knew that when Kunzite gave an order to take it quiet seriously. "Are you ready to go back there?" He questioned, curious. Endymion hadn't been to Elysian in how long now? It surely had to be all kinds of daunting.

Jackson wished he could find some amusement in the situation. If it had happened to anyone but him, he might have laughed. He might have been able to think with a clear head about the solution. Now, he was just going with the flow. Things were obviously out of his hands for the moment. He couldn’t control any of this, which pained him to think about. He wasn’t used to this. He had always been in control. Endymion knew how to handle situation out of his hands, he let others take care of it. Jackson had been so independent, not use to relying on others to take care of his messes. It was turning out to be one of his major faults. He needed to trust in his men, in his friends, that everything would be alright.

He wished that he had gotten a little more sleep, but the journey to Elysian couldn’t wait any longer. He was ready for some answers, even if they might be hard to hear. Jackson couldn’t avoid this any longer. Yes, he could avoid talking to his mother, but he needed his priest. He needed the advice and the help that he would offer. And he longed for the safety that Elysian had provided in the past. Everything that was happening now was just utter confusion. He needed something consistent in his life. Maybe living with Aiden would be a breath of fresh air, keeping everything in order. Even though Jackson was older than his general in this life, he still respected the man as he had in the past. He knew that Aiden would always take care of him, no matter what. The man took his sacrifice seriously, very willing to put his own happiness on hold to insure that Endymion was safe. That took a lot of integrity to do. No matter what had happened in the past, Jackson would always trust Aiden. He loved the man like a brother, as it should have been.

His eyes scanned the room, wondering just how it was going to be when they lived together again. Jackson wasn’t going to have anything to do. His job wasn’t going to be an issue—he had a feeling that wouldn’t have one much longer anyway. So he was going to be sitting in this apartment, waiting for something interesting to happen. He was going to go out of his mind with boredom, he could feel it. Taking a long pull from his coffee, he watched as a refreshed looking Aiden joined him in the living room. ”Morning Sunshine.” He grinned, already looking forward to the fun they were going to have together. Well, he would consider it fun. Aiden would consider it hell. It was going to be a joy, that was for sure.

His question brought silence, his mind trying to figure out just how he was feeling about going back. He had avoided it, denied that he needed it and refused to go. It had been a mistake to pretend that he didn’t need his priest and the holy grounds he stayed in. He was paying for it, that much he knew. ”I am as ready as I can be, I think. Nothing else has worked; no one else seemed to have answers. The only reason I’ve put it off was the wedding. No time like the present to appease mommy dearest.” He wished he was addicted to something besides coffee. A cigarette in his hand would have given him something to think about, something else to focus on besides his own thoughts. He wasn’t about to start a habit like that now. ”We are all set for the house in Herefordshire. As soon as we got off the phone, he said he was going to go open up the house, air it out and fill it with food. He said give it a week and it will be ready. All we have to do is get the girls on board.” He was glad that it was one less thing to worry about. With Chloe safe on acres of land, he would be able to focus on the task at hand.

Aiden hoped that this trip to Elysian would answer many of his questions. Helios had always been helpful in the past but even the priest held some secrets that he didn't want the world to know. The priest had to know what was going on with the planet and the reason why everyone was suddenly acting crazy. He liked to believe that there was reason to this madness and a good one at that. He should be able to shed some light as to what was troubling the citizens and possibly a way to counteract all of their aggression. He had never seen them behave that crazy before, not even in the midst of the Beryl crap. The people just didn't want to see reason. They refused to hear what the shitennou and prince were saying, at least to a certain extent, and they refused to see the other side of things. This could not continue and Aiden knew that there was a price to pay.

Aiden just hoped that it wouldn't end in war again.

He glanced to the prince as he was greeted, a memory flashing him back to the silver millennium days. Growing up with Endymion and the other three shitennou had always been such a challenge. The prince had been capricious by nature so it had always been interesting to see where they would be heading on a certain day. Add that to the fact that Jadeite and Zoicite always made it a habit of getting the young prince into trouble and well, the shitennou leader had often times become the older brother figure. It just so happened that Kunzite had been the serious one in the group, naturally, so he was always having to reign the guys in and get them focused on their duty. It had helped create the bonds that they all shared now, and it was one of the many reasons why Aiden was so in tune with each of his shitennou. He knew them all very well and played to their strengths and weaknesses.

He merely shook his head with a small smile on his face and headed to the kitchen to grab something to drink. Pulling a Gatorade from the fridge, Aiden came back in time to listen to the prince's response. They couldn't keep Gaia waiting for long. The display at the wedding had her name written all over it. If she had wanted their attention then she had definitely gotten it. To think that things couldn't possibly get any worse than this would be ludicrous. They'd have to be insane if they thought that this was the end all, to be all. Aiden hadn't trusted the guardian and had paid the man a visit within the last couple of days. He needed to make sure that his prince would be safe. He needed to be sure that nothing would be offset once their plan had been put into motion. The last thing he wanted was for things to be ruptured and for an unexpected curve to be tossed upon them. "I have yet to speak to Priya so I don't know what the senshi are thinking at this point," he told his prince solemnly with a serious expression on his face. He had no clue what his girlfriend was planning on doing. "Have you spoken to Chloe?"

    Seth pursed his lips, lying down on his bed. The days now seemed to be going incredibly fast and slow at the same time. He had taken the last couple days off to get his head cleared but it seemed that the extra time to think was just giving him a headache. The room was quiet as he turned off his TV in less than fifteen minutes ago. His instinct first was to call Bianca but refrained to give the girls a couple days to recuperate after the failure of a wedding. What exactly had to be talked about, well, he knew that much but he wasn’t sure how to do it. Yes, that influenced his choice. Seth was extremely straightforward on how he wanted to go through stuff. Once was to work it out in his head, which he was still doing, the second was to talk to the guys and the third was to talk to his girlfriend. It sometimes shifted in order but that was the simple process. He sighed, throwing his pillow across the room. At the same second, he received Aiden’s message. He glared up at the ceiling half-heartedly.

    Slowly getting out of bed and knowing he was dead serious on the fifteen minute mark. Walking over to the closet, he opened up and pulled out a shirt and pants. He didn’t have to look perfectly professional, but he was not going anywhere in his pajamas. It was a bit pathetic he spent the day in them but for once he did not care what he was wearing. He considered switching into Zoicite’s uniform though he decided against it. He could do it in a split second and he wanted suitable clothes when he switched back. Perhaps more important, he didn’t want to leave in uniform. It was two floors but still, this was the last time he wanted to be interrupted. He switched his clothes, checking in the mirror before leaving. Stuffing his key in his pocket, he left out the front door. There was simply teleporting, though he was not lazy to the point of not wanting to walk to a different room in the same building. Plus, he needed the extra time to get his thoughts together.

    His head still was processing sluggish for his standard. There wasn’t much that he could do about it. He was curious about what would be revealed but at the same time he was weary. He did not want the past to end up repeating itself again. In a different time and slightly different way, either way, it should stay in the past. This time around, whatever direction they went in, he wanted it to be the right thing. Humans were a difficult thing to understand. He was a logical scientist, not a psychologist. He just hoped they could understand it together. The thoughts weren’t getting anywhere productive in his head. Seth slowly headed up the stairs, trying to think of what to do. He hadn’t really talked any more than a couple words and brief updates with the guys the last couple days. It would be good to have a full conversation with everyone again.

    He stopped outside Aiden’s door, giving a firm knock. ‘Hey, it’s me. Am I good to come in?’ He didn’t want to interrupt any conversation and he thought it was good to stay polite. He could teleport in, then again, with tensions high this second he didn’t want to suddenly pop in with no warning. Tapping the doorframe gently, he looked down the hall. He had a few minutes to spare. The importance right now was not worth missing.

His memory of the Silver Millennium was slowly coming back each day. While in the beginning, his memories were foggy, now they seemed to be much clearer. His time spent with Serenity was pretty clear—something he figured could have to do with the Silver Crystal and his close association with Chloe. His recent uses of the Golden Crystal probably had something to do with the fact that he woke up each morning with new memories of the time long ago. He was remembering his childhood, what it had been like to grow up with parents who loved you and friends who would die for you. He was remembering what it was like to be a kid without a care in the world. And it was a pleasant surprise how much he enjoyed the memory. Jackson wasn’t at all bitter that he couldn’t remember his life before the accident. The only thing he knew of his parents in life were the images from pictures. Even if it wasn’t from this life, it still was nice to know where he came from.

He remembered plenty of times where he ended up getting into some kind of trouble with Jadeite and Zoisite. They tended to be the ones ready to have a blast, get into a little trouble and lie to get their way. It was something they’d enjoyed, the way they had bonded. They had bonded with Kunzite simply by keeping him on his toes. But it was more than that—they were brothers and friends. They had a close bond that nothing could destroy. It was humbling for him, to know that they would die to keep him safe. It made the bond they shared even rarer.

He shook his head, ”I’m guessing she’s asleep. I tried calling her a few times, so I sent her a text. She’ll get it when she wakes up. And who knows when that will be. She is going to be hard to convince, but I think I will be able to. Hopefully, she will see reason.” He just hoped that she would see it as an adventure or vacation and not a punishment. She liked to think that they needed to do everything together, but this was one of the few things that she wouldn’t be able to help with. Not immediately anyway. Jackson wasn’t about to put her life in danger so that she could feel like she was helping, too. Maybe he could convince her parents to go as well, get them out of the limelight for a while. He didn’t want to see them ending up like Princess Diana or something because of the news crews all over them.

He felt the familiar blonde hair presence on the other side of the door and grinned. Now it was turning into a party. Jackson was determined to try and look on the bright side, much like Endymion had been. He stood quickly, tossing open the door and grinning like a fool. ”About time you showed up. I was worried you might ditch me for Bianca or something. Welcome to my humble abode.” He opened the door. He was sure that Seth would be confused, but all would be explained when the rest got there. ”I’d offer you something to drink by I don’t know where the hell anything is.”

He was becoming more and more like Endymion each day.

Aiden would be the first to admit that he had always thought the princess, and thus Chloe, were not suitable for his prince. She was childish and an absolute airhead. Anyone who could throw away duty for love was completely down in his books. And the selfish way that Serenity had escaped to the Earth had always left a bad feeling inside of General Kunzite. So then when he had met Chloe in this day and age, her bright personality was just another thorn in his side. He had long since accepted the senshi of the moon as his prince's companion but she would never truly win his true approval. So he wasn't surprised when Jackson told him that Chloe was probably sleeping. Of course she was. What else did that woman do but sleep and eat? Aiden refrained from rolling his eyes at the comment and instead focused on their game plan.

"They are truly stubborn. We have better chances of moving a freight train without our powers than we do convincing those women to hear us out." If only things could be so much easier! Aiden was going to add something more to it but he, too, felt Seth's presence close in on them. It was good that they were so connected with the earth and each other that he could feel the shitennou when he needed to. His essence was bright and powerful, so of course it wasn't hard to miss. Aiden shook his head as Seth's voice popped into his mind. Of course, he uttered but wasn't surprised when Jackson made the move to open the door for the other shitennou. This time Aiden couldn't refrain from rolling his eyes, a chuckle escaping his lips as well. At least the prince seemed to be in a much better mood than he had been hours before. That in itself was a relief.

"What he really means is that he's glad you are up for this expedition." Aiden commented dryly as he took a sip of his Gatorade. "And Seth already knows that he's always welcome to fetch himself whatever he likes." It had always been his policy with the guys whenever they were at his apartment. They could go grab whatever they desired from the kitchen at a moment's notice. He had that sort of freedom with them from years of experience. "Speaking of Bianca, how are things? Have you spoken to her in light of recent events?" If Aiden and Jackson hadn't had any luck with the women about what had happened, perhaps Seth had? It was good to get all sides of the situation before making a difinitive plan. Plus, they still had Leo and Alex to wait for and the former probably had much to say about the whole fiasco.

    Seth waited a couple moments before he sensed presence directly behind the door. A second later it opened to reveal Jackson… with a beard. He was still getting used to that. Granted, he didn’t check up on his prince- soon king- as often as he should the last couple days but he trusted Aiden in that regard. Giving a small nod in the head for greeting he stepped inside. He glanced around the room, seeing nothing drastically different since the last time he was here. Returning the grin, knowing how hard it was to make a joke right now he appreciated the attempts. “About time? I started getting ready the second Kunz sent the message. Considering I decided not to teleport straight here with my pajamas, I made good time.” He let the door close, realizing a second late that he admitted to being laying around with no tries to join civilization in pajamas. Though, if Jackson could grow a beard, he could confine to himself in pajamas.

    “Abode, huh, I’m honored.” He looked around one more time. “Though, I’ve frequented here before.” Looking over at Aiden for the first time, he nodded. “Yes, I’m up for it.” Maybe, he was hoping, getting out and being productive in this mess was what he needed. Being stuck in his head for a few days was not doing him any good. “And I’ll grab something for myself in a minute.” Seth leaned against the wall, his lips pursed for a split second. He knew the guys would ask about Bianca. With everything going on, it was good to know where people stood. Unfortunately, he really didn’t. He shook his head, “Nope, I haven’t really talked to her since all hell broke loose.” There were a couple times he stared at the phone, about to call but stopped himself. He needed to know what to say and not sound offensive or being a bumbling idiot. So he held it off. It wasn’t a bad idea to call her after they were done. “I believe she’s helping the girls settle down after what happened so I decided to give some space for right now.” And he was afraid a conversation will go in the wrong direction. More so than the others, they were critical thinkers and not to let emotions or passion get in the way. In the end it was a serious situation and he did not want to risk it.

    He walked across the room, taking a few seconds to get himself a drink. The plan was not to get buzzed or intoxicated on eve of such an expedition, as Aiden put it. A small shot wouldn’t do any harm and it would help settle his nerves. Not that he would admit they needed to be settled. Without much more to say until the others got here or until Jackson and Aiden started up on talking. Seth wasn’t sure what they were talking about when he got here, though he could guess. There was nothing to say when he didn’t know what point of the conversation they were on.

”You left me wallowing in my own misery for two days. Of course it’s about time. I was beginning to think you didn’t care.” He grinned as he plopped back down on the couch, picking his coffee mug up and taking another long swig from it. While he still hadn’t slept in 2 days, his healing powers and addiction to caffeine were the only thing keeping him going. He probably should have tried to sleep as well, but he had too much to do between the time Aiden left and the arrival of his generals. ”It doesn’t really matter what you wear to Elysian, you know.” He pointed out, knowing that as soon as they arrived, whatever they were in would dissolve into the white uniforms of the holy land. Heck, Seth could have worn his Spiderman pajamas if he wanted to and no one would have really cared.

Okay, maybe that was a lie. But still, the point was the same.

Jackson shrugged his shoulders when Aiden reminded him that everyone knew they were welcome to whatever. ”Just trying to be a gracious host, that’s all. A guy can’t even be polite these days.” Setting his coffee cup down, he moved into the kitchen in search of some kind of snack. The Chinese food he’d had only a few hours earlier was long gone and he knew that the energy he would need to used would require more nutrition that he was used to. ”It seems that we are all avoiding our significant others. Well, I’m not. But I probably would be if she had transformed too. Can’t say that I blame you.” He said loudly, his head buried in the fridge looking for something to eat. He didn’t think he could eat any more weird leftovers and Priya didn’t really cook. He grabbed a Gatorade as well, moving to the pantry to where Priya would have kept the junk food. Finding a bag of chips, Jackson made his way back to the couch to enjoy his snack.

He watched Seth make a drink, knowing that the liquor he was drinking was needed for ‘medicinal purposes’. Things were hectic—even he needed a drink earlier in the day. Luckily for him, his healing kept him sober. He couldn’t have really gotten tanked if he had tried—unless he was drinking large amounts at one time. The scotch he’d consumed before had done nothing but keep him warm. What he would have given for a hangover. ”I would be willing to teleport them against their will and barricade them in the house in Herefordshire. I’m sure we can come up with something Andy couldn’t destroy.” He wasn’t against the idea at all. He needed them safe, needed to be able to focus on the task at hand without worrying if they were causing trouble on the streets of London.

Leo loved his job. Really, he did. He liked the satisfaction of helping people who needed assistance and then sending bad people to jail when he did a good job with his case. But lately going to work had become a huge pain in the ass. Ever since people had begun to recognize him as Nephrite, his appointments had been filling up at a rapid fire pace that even he couldn’t keep up with. He was booked solid at the moment to the point where he was having to turn people away. After all, who didn’t want General Nephrite as your lawyer if you could get him? He had been an up and coming lawyer who won most of his cases already, but now with the added celebrity status (if you could call it that) he was suddenly the most sought after lawyer in the city. In any other case, Leo would have eaten the attention up. He had always dreamed of being a successful lawyer and that was exactly what he was now. But people only wanted him because he was Nephrite and the amount of attention he got for that reason was frustrating to the max. He wasn’t a particularly patient person to begin with, but with people clamoring to see him all the time, keeping him from doing the work he actually needed to get done, he was always on a short string these days.

And then there was Andy, his pregnant, fiancée who just happened to be a sailor senshi who made stupid, life endangering decisions.

Suddenly, Leo didn’t just have his work and publicly rediscovered identity as Nephrite to worry about. He had to worry about her leaving the apartment out of boredom or deciding to walk the dogs and getting killed by another group of batshit crazy civilians because she decided to transform right in front of them. Of course, Andy was anything from a damsel in distress that needed his protection. She could take care of herself better than anyone else he knew. Unfortunately all that meant was Leo also had to worry about Andy killing said batshit crazy civilians while they tried to kill her. And truthfully, Leo was putting his money on Andy. It was nice to know that he didn’t have to worry about his fiancée’s life as much as he might feel the need to. But if she killed anyone, even in self-defense, that would just label her as his enemy and that was really the last thing that he wanted. They were trying to convince the civilians that the senshi were good and meant them no harm. What would they do if one of the senshi killed someone? Leo had managed to do some minor clean up with the news reports after the last attack, but even he couldn’t alter the whole world’s memory of what they had seen on the news. If a senshi killed a civilian, there would be no containing that information fully either.

But that brought him to the morning’s plans to visit Helios. Leo had already been awake when Aiden had sent the message out to all the men. It was a good idea to meet with the priest and see what was he knew and there was no way he would allow himself to be left out. But there was Andy to worry about. Even if Leo was still pretty angry with her for the stunt she had pulled at the wedding, certain circumstances meant that they were talking to each other unlike many of the other couples. For one, they lived together and Andy hadn’t tried to run away from him before he had blown a gasket at her. And secondly, she was pregnant, which meant in Leo’s mind that she needed him to make sure everything was okay. She was four months pregnant and had just gone through something traumatic after all. He didn’t know what they’d do if they lost the baby now. The news had been a shock at first, but now that they were actually planning for a family, losing it would be devastating. So after telling Andy where get was going and making her swear she wouldn’t go anywhere that day (not that the words meant much coming out of her mouth in this situation), Leo left for Aiden’s apartment. He arrived in the living room just in time to hear Endymion’s comment about Andy. “Andy can destroy anything she fucking wants to. I never stop fearing for my doors. And my apartment in general. Whatever she doesn’t get, the dogs will. What are we talking about?” That was the problem with appearing in mid conversation.

For some reason Aiden wasn't all that surprised. The wedding event seemed to have soured everyone and their relationships for the moment. Aiden knew that he and Priya weren't really speaking at the moment and hearing that Seth hadn't spoken to Bianca was not reassuring in the least. He had presumed that Leo was somewhat on speaking terms with Andy considering their situation but who the fuck knew at this point. "Hm, that sounds about right." He commented off handedly. The senshi were going to be difficult to convince but it had to be done. It was the only way, momentarily, that the men could keep them safe. At laest until they found some sort of solution. Aiden had no idea what that was to be honest. He was pretty lost at this point and had no fucking clue what might pacify the people, if anything at all. The leading general inwardly sighed. He hoped that Helios would shine some sort of light on them. The last thing the men needed was to remain clueless all of this time.

Aiden remained silent as Jackson began to speak. Teleporting the women against their will would just be disastrous. Aiden knew that it would be more trouble than it was worth. The man had no doubts that the senshi would just go batshit insane on them and then the guys would only have themselves to blame. Aiden was definitely not an idiot! He chuckled at the idea of finding something Andy couldn't destroy. Yeah. Right. And right on cue, Leo appeared directly in his living room, going on his own rant about Andy and the things being destroyed in his apartment. The words made him laugh. The idea of Leo living with Andy and two giant dogs still amused him to this day. It was fucking funny as hell to imagine two beasts in Leo's usually upkept apartment. Lord knows what the place looked like now with two animals. "We were talking about locking the women up in Herefordshire. Endy here was just worrying about Andy fucking shit up," Aiden commented absently before he pulled himself from the convo so that he could contact the one missing shitennou.

After a few minutes he pipped up. "Alright, lets get going. Alex is not coming. He's in the middle of a meeting with the American embassy," Aiden relayed what the young shitennou had told him. Which was fine. It wasn't like he could just pop out of the meeting room. He'd make sure to catch Jadeite up on everything once they returned. For now they had business to attend to. Aiden glanced to Endy. "You do remember how to get there, don't you?" He asked with a smirk on his face. "Don't get lost on your way there. It'd be tedious to have to find you." And with that said the general opened up a portal for himself and disappeared behind it, making his way to the land that they had traveled since their silver millennium days. The land that only the prince and his heavenly shitennou could enter.

    Seth gave a brief nod to Jackson, “I’m sorry. I know some people like to be left alone when getting their thoughts together or not badgered by everyone they know.” He hoped it didn’t sound like he was coming up with excuses. If he felt like he was needed or was asked for help he would do it in a second. He trusted Aiden so he stayed to himself. A small part of that was because he wasn’t exactly sure the best way to offer support and chances were he would have made the situation worse. “And I’m aware I could wear whatever and that it would change anyway. But I still have a strong fashion sense to present myself in, for a few minutes or not.” He highly doubted that nobody would comment or care if he shown up in his pajamas. They were plain white and gray pajamas, but still. Seth was paranoid about being presentable, he didn’t know, it would remain awkward.

    He was not really avoiding Bianca. If she came to talk to him he probably would oblige. Giving them space and avoiding them were two different things. Thinking about it, there was some avoidance there that took place the last couple days. Now, he liked to think he was willing to talk. That was the least they could all do. As he thought about it, he started to think maybe he wasn’t as ready as he would prefer. After the day was over and have a better understanding on the factors going on he will be more willing. He had to get out of the thinking through things himself stage and talk to others. It was hard but a relief to be able to connect to the guys again. Taking a swing of his shot, easily drinking it down in one go, he moved to put the cup in the sink. “You’re a good host, I wouldn’t worry about it.”

    He moved back to his original spot, tilting his head to the side as he listened to the girl relocation strategy, for lack of a better word. Personally, he agreed that it would be a good idea though he could relate that doing so to a bunch of women who were used to handling things themselves the last few years. He thought that Bianca would be if only slightly easier to convince, if only to help keep an eye on everybody else. Though, after the last few days of events, he had no idea what thought process his recently made girlfriend was thinking. It was sad to think about but it was true. His gaze went over to Leo as he came in and put his two cents in. Yeah, he could believe that.

    Seth was disappointed that Alex wasn’t able to come. He considered him slightly closer than the others because of their temperaments. He admired Alex for keeping enough focus on work, he hadn’t been able to. Resisting the urge to roll his eyes, he instead gave a solemn smile to show he understood. Get lost indeed, it hadn’t been yesterday since they made this trip but it wasn’t forever either. He gave the briefest glance to the others before following Aiden.

Jack liked giving the younger general a hard time. It was something he’d done often in the past, enjoying the banter between himself and the blonde generals. The two hadn’t spent all that much time together in this life, what with Jackson’s schooling and Seth’s up and coming business. That seemed to be changing now though. Jackson was sure his job was no longer going to be an issue. ”Just don’t let it happen again. I might have gone all emo and started cutting my wrists or something. ” He popped a chip in his mouth, taking a drink from his soda as well.

Seeing Leo here took a little weight off his shoulders. He was pleased that he felt that Andy would be okay at the house without him for a while. And that he, too, was worried about his house. Jack would have been, too, if Chloe had brought any animal other than Luna to his apartment. Good thing she was the cleanest cat he’d ever seen. ”Damn, I hope she doesn’t tear down the place. I don’t think I have enough money in my trust to cover repairs. Should we put them in a bunker? Aren’t there some of those left over from World War 2? They promised to withstand an atomic bomb—is that stronger or weaker than Andy?” He raised an eyebrow, wondering just they could compare the power of Jupiter. It would be something to see, putting her up against modern day weapons. Or to watch her and Nat go at it.

And that just made him sad. He was glad that Alex wasn’t coming. He thought the combination of the three would have made Aiden completely mad. It would have been fun to torture the man for a while, but with everything that was going on, he didn’t think the police officer needed it. He laughed at Aiden, ”Tap my heels three times? There’s no place like home? Follow the yellow brick road? I don’t think I know how to get there! CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO GET TO SESAME STREET!?” He was being a sarcastic bastard, he knew, but hey, wasn’t Endymion always the first one to be a smart ass? He knew how to get to Elysian. The way was engrained into his very soul. He followed the rest, his mind set to the one place he could truly feel at peace with the Earth.

If Aiden thought Leo was joking about Andy destroying his house, he was sorely wrong. It was true the Jovian senshi hadn’t done anything drastic yet, but chances were it was probably only a matter of time now that he didn’t want her leaving the house unless it was completely necessary. It wasn’t that Leo didn’t trust her to take care of herself. He would never doubt her abilities as a senshi for an instant. But God forbid someone recognized her and attacked. That would be a mess they would be cleaning up for ages… in so, so many ways. Truth be told, Leo had been rather surprised to see that his home was still intact after the mess with the wedding. After all, they both had horrible tempers and they had both been pissed with each other. They still were. But besides that one broken dish and the scrape on the doorframe (which could have quite possibly been one of the dogs) though, the apartment had been untouched. Seeing as Andy had never held herself back like that since Leo had met her, he couldn’t help but wonder if it had had something to do with sticking the moon princess with her. Was that the trick to keeping Jupiter at bay when she was angry? If it was, God help him because he wouldn’t last a week like that. He’d rather deal with a thoroughly wrecked apartment than the blond jabbering on and on while eating all his food.

He turned to Aiden as the general explained what he had missed. Locking the girls up in Herefordshire? Leo really had missed a lot in the past few days between work and making sure Andy didn’t do anything else stupid. The plan admittedly made sense. If the senshi disappeared, the citizens wouldn’t be able to attack them, even if they did know their true identities. Not only that, but there was less chance that the citizens would riot again if the senshi were removed from their everyday lives. After all, that’s what they wanted. And even if they did riot, the senshi wouldn’t be around to get involved and rile them up again. It was a win win decision for everyone. The people settled down and the senshi stayed safe. But Leo still didn’t entirely like it. He had asked Andy to move in with him because she was pregnant and he wanted to be there for her as they started a family. If Andy left for Herefordshire, they couldn’t do that. And yes, if Andy even heard about this plan, Leo would probably have to worry about Andy fucking more than just his apartment up. “If you mention this to her, she’ll fuck you up,” he said, raising an eyebrow, a slight frown on his face. It was important to make sure no one knew where Andy was, he got that. But why couldn’t he stay with her in the process? They could buy a new apartment. He could keep her safe. He was a lawyer. He knew all about keeping people safe from groups who wanted them dead.

I can’t promise anything if we force her into it,” Leo said, turning his attention to Jack now. Andy was a force of nature, more or less quite literally. If she was angry, a house stood no chance against what she could do, especially one she had no incentive to leave standing. A bunker on the other hand… Something like that would at least have a fighting chance. Those things were generally metal covered in cement, right? How conductive was cement? But it was a moot point. If Andy wouldn’t forgive him for sending her away to live in Herefordshire, she certainly would do worse if he tried to stick her in some bunker. And then it came down to the fact that he didn’t want to send her anywhere in the first place. “I don’t think any of the girls would appreciate the bunker idea,” It was probably the truth. Leo smirked as Jack asked if Andy was stronger or weaker than an atomic bomb. “That’s quite truthfully something I never want to find out,” he admitted.

With Alex officially too busy to join them, it was time to go to Elysian. Leo rolled his eyes as Aiden baited Jack and the prince took the bait spectacularly. “Just show us how it’s done, smart ass,” he said, stepping into Elysian himself. Of course the prince knew how to get to Elysian. If he couldn’t, well they really did have a problem. Elysian was as beautiful and peaceful as ever. Everything was so green, the healing lake as refreshing to look at as always. But their business was in Helios’s temple today. Hopefully the priest would be able to tell them what they needed to know.

The feelings rumbling around the Earth left Helios very uncomfortable. The priest of Elysian was very aware of the happenings on the planet. He was the protector of dreams so it was very easy for him to watch what was going on during the night. He watched as people began to dream about their past lives. He watched as people began to react to the senshi, calling for their heads for the mistakes of the past. He watched as the citizens wrestled with their feelings and memories. It was awful watching the earthlings come apart but there was really nothing that he could do about that. There was a higher power at work here and he knew just what was happening. Helios was unsure if any of this would be good but he was sure that this was the path before Crystal London. He was well aware that the prince of Earth had to get through to these people and earn their trust before he could be crowned king.

Helios could feel the currents of the prince and the shitennou. He could feel them rippling through the earth, feel them as they left the surface and traveled through the speed of light towards Elysian. The priest of Elysian stood up from his perch on the floor, watching the earth through the sacred golden mirror, before he walked out of the room. Helios took measured steps as he slowly walked down the ivory hallway. Things had to be dire on earth if the prince and his guardians were actually traveling to Elysian. In the golden kingdom days the shitennou and prince came whenever it suited their fancy. They liked being in these scared lands because it was peaceful and the pool was good for healing after practice battles and the like.

The minute that Helios had walked out of the sacred palace he watched as Prince Endymion and three of his shitennou appeared before him. The priest of Elysian smiled softly. He was happy to see them, as he always was, but it was a shame that it was under these circumstances. Helios noticed that Jadeite was missing from the crew but wouldn't ask. He figured that the shitennou was missing for a reason and wouldn't put too much stock into it. "Prince Endymion, welcome to Elysian." Helios stated as he bowed before his prince and his trusty guardians. "What brings you here?" Helios had an idea. He wasn't stupid. The problem was that he wasn't exactly a mind reader and if Endymion wanted answers to something then he would only need to ask.
