A cop spots you and tips his hat at you. "Sorry for the disturbance, ma'am. We're just arresting that pervert you reported earlier."

(Sorry for the delay folks, I've written myself into a corner and am kinda waiting to see how the Mafia game goes)

The cops escort the pervert out. All quiets down after a moment.

Your report is received with relieved sighs. You leave for Colonel Chicken, your handiwork behind you.

On your way to the Colonel Chicken, you pass by the ruins of Mugen School. It was here that the Sailor Senshi had recently pushed back the Death Busters and their master, Pharaoh Ninety of the Tau Nebula. Had they fallen, not even the Zodiac and their Star Guard could have withstood the invasion. This, more than anything else, reminds you of the urgency in finding the Star Princess and reclaiming her power.

To think this is the sort of power we're dealing with here...and the search starts by spying on a school of all places.

You remember the incident. Unfortunately all you have are faces, not names. Not very helpful in narrowing down candidates, and you're not even certain if any of those girls were the Princess anyway. You're pretty sure, however, that you are underpaid.

You arrive at Colonel Chicken and notice your colleagues sitting in a booth nearby.

"Hey, you just missed a message from The Top. Apparently there was a dimensional breach on the outskirts of town. Sailor Senshi took care of it, though."

"A breach? What was it this time?"

You sit down and take a drumstick from the bucket.

"We're not sure. The readings that Sagittarius took reminded him of the Droid attacks from last year, but he said and I quote 'it was too primitive to be a Droid'. Maybe it has something to do with the Rip he detected before the Droid attacks."

> Eat the chicken, starting to wonder whether or not I even felt like having Colonel Chicken in the first place

"Typical. Doesn't that mean that it could be practically anything else?"

"Well no. Did anyone ever tell you what exactly the Rip is?" He puts his chicken down and picks up a napkin. "Before last year's Droid attacks, and even before the Cardians, there's a gap in everyone's memories. Everyone's. Yours, mine, the Zodiacs, that waitress... the only reason we noticed it was because our tech staff keeps really good logs. It's like a year or something disappeared. Nobody even knows when exactly you and Hudson joined the Star Guard. One day you weren't with us, then the Rip occurs and here you two are."

He sighs. "Not that you and Hudson are bad operatives, it's just... something happened and we don't know what. All of the readings indicate that the Silver Crystal had a hand in it, which makes no sense since Sailor Moon and company didn't even show up until after the Rip - their first appearance coincides with the Cardian attacks."

He picks up his chicken again and studies it. "Sagittarius thinks that the signal is actually from something that caused the Rip, but he's got no way of proving it."

"Surely we couldn't have been the only ones to notice an entire calendar year disappearing. I mean, wouldn't there be evidence of a lot of things that had changed? Videotapes? Recorded news programs?"

"That's just it, though. Numerically the years match up, but the actual events are disjointed. It's less someone deleted a year so much as it never actually happened - outside from the effects of whatever actually did happen that year. Ever have a dream where a week of things happens but it's still only the next day when you wake up? Or a dream so real that when you wake up you can't tell what was the dream and what's reality?"

"I've got to give you credit, you're the first person to give it to me that straightforward. But if we're getting similar readings, is there a chance that something similar is currently happening, or might happen again?"

You glance out the window and spot a leathery red winged thing. Nobody else seems to notice.

Something in the back of your mind says "Ravator".
