Heartfelt Reunion upon the Risen Star

By Matthew Galezowski

Romance / Adventure

Dark Beginning

Half a year has come by, since the Earth and Queen Earth were restored to its natural beauty when it was poisoned by the Black Vaccine from Dark Joker; right after Lord Buros' defeat at the hands of the legendary Nurse Angel.

But it came at a high cost: In order to save both planets, one bright young girl named Ririka Moriya made a heroic sacrifice by transforming into Nurse Angel once more and performing the Flower of Life. It happened on her eleventh birthday and with that, she was a goner.

Nozomu Kano, originally known as Kanon from the Planet Queen Earth was offered a request from Ririka that after she disappears, she advised him to erase everyone's memories and existence of her. Yet, due to his sympathy and connection towards her, he didn't fulfill her promise.

So, rather than erasing her family and friends' memories of Ririka, he does the opposite: By informing them that Ririka has gone missing after she took off on her eleventh birthday.

This resulted of bringing terrible grief and sorrow towards her family and friends regarding Ririka's sudden disappearance. Basically, it was a cover-up to ensure that Ririka didn't pass away. Once that happened, the news had spread across White Dove Academy and the entire town by putting up posters that showed Ririka's identity in the center and the word 'Missing' on-top of it.

Back on Queen Earth, Helena's health was fully restored after Ririka had used the Flower of Life.

Princess Mimina was also happy that Helena is back to her original self.

As they both smiled to each other, it instantly turned into sadness when they've recalled Ririka risking her life to save their planet and her own. Just as they were about to cry, Kanon appears in-front of them.

"Oh! Prince Kanon, you're here" said Helena to him.

He slowly rose his head up and responded. "I…I didn't fulfill…Ririka's wish."

Mimina blinked her eyes in confusion. "What wish?"

Kanon explained. "Before Ririka transformed into Nurse Angel for the last time in order to use the Flower of Life, she requested me to erase everyone's memories of her."

"And, did you succeed?" thought Helena.

After a brief moment of silence, he answered while tightening his fist and lips. "N-No. I did not."

"What?!" gasped both Helena and her assistant.

"Instead of relinquishing the existence and memories of Ririka, I informed her family and friends that she went missing. In other words, it's to cover up her demise" he told them.

Both Helena and Mimina were shocked at Kanon's words, regarding Ririka's actuality. They couldn't believe that he didn't accept Ririka's request of not only erasing her presence and everybody's memories of her, but also notifying them that she disappeared rather than declaring her departure.

Helena was about to reply back to Kanon about his decision until she sensed a strange but strong vibration that sent a shockwave to her brain. "Ah! My…My head!"

"Your majesty! What's the matter?" cried Kanon.

"Let me help. I'll try and read her mind." As Mimina moves in carefully and places her hand on Helena's head, she begins reading her thoughts. Once she does, she witnessed a phenomenal sight: lying on her back in the pasture of the Flower of Life is none other than Ririka.

Right after looking into Helena's mind, she stepped a few feet away with a mixture of relief and sadness on her face. "It's…It's a miracle!"

"What do you mean by that and why are you crying?" Kanon asked.

Not only was she crying, so did Helena was a soft smile.

The ruler of Queen Earth replied to him with a shocking answer. "It's Ririka. She's…She's alive!"

Kanon's eyes flashed with horror upon hearing those words. "Th-That's impossible! How did she…"

Helena cuts him off. "Even I couldn't believe it either. In-spite of what we've found out, I'm grateful that Ririka is still alive…somewhere."

By taking a deep breath, Kanon sighed and asked her. "So, where do we find her? She can't be this far."

While Kanon figures out of how to locate Ririka, back into the pasture of the Flower of Life, Ririka slowly stood up after realizing that she has survived. She declined it at first, but because of the Black Vaccine spreading throughout both planets like wildfire, she had no alternative but to risk her life and restore its original beauty.

She brushed herself off and contemplated of how to get back home. "I wonder how long it's been. Maybe Seiya-kun would still remember me including Kanon-senpai."

Suddenly, her whole body was engulfed in a white light and then, she vanished.

Immediately back on Queen Earth, both Mimina and Helena are questioning Kanon regarding his decision from Ririka's request before she executed the Flower of Life.

"We still haven't found out as to why you didn't erase everyone's memories of Ririka."

"Explain yourself, Kanon."

He hung his head down for a brief moment and confessed to them the whole story. "Although I originally wanted to erase her family and friends' memories of Ririka, along with her existence, I initially turned it down because of my connection towards her."

Mimina and Helena looked at each other in shock for a few seconds and turned back to him.

"You mean to tell us that the reason you declined her wish is because..."

"You liked Ririka?"

He nodded his head slightly.

That's when the unexpected had occurred: a mysterious white light had appeared and it formed a very familiar person that they all knew too familiar with: Ririka Moriya.

Kanon, Mimina and Helena all gasped in utter shock of seeing her alive and well.

"Wh-Why, you're..."

"R-Ririka? Is that you?"

"It...It is!"

They should have different names a...
