WIND BENEATH MY WINGS
The group that was made up of mostly Senshi, although in their regular everyday guise’s as normal everyday humans, sat in the 4th row of the audience in the concert hall eagerly awaiting the show they were about to see.
Consisting of Mamaru and his best friend Matoki and his girlfriend, as well as Ami, Mina, Rei, Makoto, Setsuna, Hotaru and Naru they had all mysteriously received tickets to this concert by the mysterious songbird that just went by the pseudonym Princess. She always wore a mask that concealed her identity when she performed in public and in her music clips, whenever she was in them personally that is, and was very popular with her growing numbers of fans who were lured in by the mystery of it all.
Soon the normal lights dimmed and the stage lights flared up. There was a flash of spectacular lights and when they calmed the audience could see that the band had just made their way onto the stage. And two of them were quite familiar to the heroines in the fourth row, they were amazed to Haruka and Michiru ready with instruments at hand.
A feminine came over the speakers announcing . . . “This first song has been requested by someone who wishes to remain anonymous.It is dedicated to the emergency services and other helpful individuals who have done their best when dealing with recent disasters both large and small.Thank you for all of your hard work and I wish only the best for you all in the future.”
“O...o...o . . . whoa . . . ohhh . . .” The band members begun playing along with the voice and a purple clad feminine figure made her way across the stage with a matching purple mask. Her long blonde and silver tinged hair pulled up in a fancy hairdo that must have taken hours to do and which looked amazing.
“It must have been cold there in my shadow, to never have sunlight on your face.” She shook her head in amazement. “You were content to let me shine, that’s your way, you always walked a step behind.” There were large screens on both sides and the high middle of the stage and they were showing emergency service workers, doctors and nurses in hospitals, paramedics out in the field, police and fire men and women on the job, rescue workers pulling trapped personal from a variety of situations, and even a fireman removing a kitten from a tree.
“So I was the one with all the glory.” Sailor Moon’s visage flashed across the screen with a group of young children hugging her, clearly after just being rescued. “While you were the one with all the strain.” More scenes, this time also with volunteers who were helping in a variety of ways. “A beautiful face without a name, for so long. A beautiful smile to hide the pain.”
The screens were now showing clips of children of all ages doing all sorts of helpful deeds. “Did you ever know that you’re my hero, and everything I would like to be.” A picture of animals helping rescue personal and in other ways joined the children’s clips. “I can fly higher than an eagle; you are the wind beneath my wings.”
Then the screens went blank for a moment before Sailor Moons visage came back on the screen, this time she was the one singing to the audience. “It might have appeared to go unnoticed, but I’ve got it all here in my heart.” Her gloved hand had gone to her heart here, before gesturing out to the excited and clapping and whistling crowd which quickly quieted back down to here the rest of the song. “I want you to know I know the truth, course I know it. I would be nothing without you.”
The clips returned to the screen showing a mixture of scenes that were similar to the ones already shown. Sailor moon was still singing. “Did you ever know that you’re my hero? You’re everything I wish I could be; I could fly higher than an eagle, for you are the wind beneath my wings.”
Princess then resumed singing. “Did I ever tell you you’re my hero? You’re everything, everything, I wish I could be . . . oh and I . . . I could fly higher than an eagle for you are the wind beneath my wings.”
Sailor moon sung out again “Because you are the wind beneath my wings . . . Oh the wind beneath my wings . . . you . . . you . . . you . . . you are the wind beneath my wings.”
Princess again, “Fly . . . fly . . . fly away . . . you let me fly so high!”
Sailor moon, “Oh you . . . you . . . you, you the wind beneath my wings
Princess, “Oh you . . . you . . . you, the wind beneath my wings
And both, “Fly . . . fly . . . so high against the sky, so high I almost touch the sky.”
Princess, “Thank you, thank you.”
Sailor Moon, “thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.”
The music died down and Sailor Moon came back on the screens, but it was princess who was speaking. “Everyone, Ms Sailor Moon.”
Sailor Moon nodded and smiled back to her in acknowledgment, before speaking. “On behalf of the Senshi and myself, thank you for letting me give my thanks to all of the emergency services personal and regular everyday people who have volunteered their time and money to assisting others in need. You have been a big inspiration.” She paused for a moment while the crowd whistled and clapped again in response, they were an energetic lot. “I would also like to thank my fellow Senshi for all that they have done over the years in keeping Gaea/Earth safe, it isn’t an easy job but I think that they have done a pretty good job considering.” The audience clapped again and in the fourth row said Senshi clapped and had tears welling in their eyes in stunned appreciation.
“Thank you Sailor Moon for all you have done for us as well as you kind words.” Princess spoke up.
“I have to go now so best wishes to everyone,” those were her last words before she left the screen.
Princess took a deep breath then joking spoke to the audience, “now how am I going to top that!” They laughed. “I guess you’ll just have to stick around and find out.” They cheered and Princess laughed. “This next song is dedicated to one of my good friends, she knows who she is.”
“She's like the wind through my tree, she rides the night next to me,” Haruka smiles happily at her and that clues the Senshi about who Princess really is, they didn’t know why it didn’t click with them before now as the name was a big enough clue! “She leads me through moonlight, only to burn me with the sun, she’s taken my heart, but she doesn’t know what she’s done. . .”

AN: Sorry about all of the comma's before, I can't always see what a story is like until it's posted up and I can read it as though it isn't one of my own. It makes it easier to edit and I hope it's now easier to read. Please let me know what you think!
