Trap onto the Starlight Tower
And we're already heading towards Zoisite's death.
Back in the Dark Kingdom, Beryl tells Zoisite and Kunzite that they should try again to get the missing Nijizuishou, and capture Tuxedo Kamen, not kill him. Zoisite (who hates TK) protests but Beryl shuts him up
Zoisite appears on Mamoru's TV as this one arrives home from
their night fight.
You can't see it because it's a still pic, but he was playing with that lock of his hair all along, and that was *cute*... *g* Me likes Zoi. Uh, wasn't that obvious yet?
Mamoru accepts (despite his wound).
On sunset, Mamoru heads to the unoccupied Starlight Tower where the duel is to be set. Usagi (Sailor Moon under her human identity) follows him as she noticed he was wounded and worries for him.
Zoisite senses his approach and teleports both Mamoru and Usagi, since she was with him.
I have to explain here that at this point of the story, none of these people
knows about each other's double identity, except Zoi knowing that Mamoru and
Tuxedo Kamen are one and the same.
Usagi went unconscious from the shock. So she doesn't hear while Zoi settles the terms of the fight : he deposits his 5 Nijizuishou in the middle of the huge room, between him and Mamoru, and says the winner will get them.
Mamoru asks that he'd release Usagi, and Zoi says she'll be free after the
Zoi watches that with an amused smile, then smirks and bursts out laughing, treating Mamoru of idiot (rightly so, if you want my opinion...)...
A surprised Mamoru sees Kunzite materializing in the middle of the room, too far to reach, grabbing the whole 7 Nijizuishou telekinetically.
Zoisite warns Mamoru not to try anything or he'll fry Usagi.
Kunzite tells Zoisite that he lets him take care of them, and teleports.
Mamoru sends him a red rose (that's his basic attack. Don't ask), but since Kunzite he's already half gone, the rose continues and hits Zoisite.
The blow is not dangerous, but it *gasps* wounds his face (red blood! He has red blood, unlike Nephrite). So Zoi is now *mightily* pissed off at Tuxedo Kamen and vanishes in a swirl of sakura petals.
Usagi wakes up just in time to see him disappear. The floor starts to crumble
under her and Mamoru's feet, and they run to the elevator to save their lives.
