>> Mamoru's eyes snapped open. He sat bolt upright in bed,
>> nightclothes soaked in sweat. He scrubbed a clammy hand
>> through short, damp hair. His heart hammered in his chest.
> He is going to hate life when he figures out who this chick in his dreams
It'll definitely be...interesting.

> So, no splattering him accross Tokyo?
Well, they kinda need him alive, so...

Ami doesn't have emotional problems. She's just a bitch. :)
>> I cannot ignore the danger to humanity. Not when I am one of

>> Of course, with the horizon painted brilliantly red and

You got that right.
>> "What the hell do you want?" Mamoru spat.
>> "Why...you, dear boy."
>> Everything went black.
> Hosed, but smart.
Thanks for reading! :)
