A/N: Here it is, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…….The Final Confrontation! So sad that this fanfic is coming to an end even though this isn't really the last chapter lol
Aaaand…… LOL I have nothing else to say in this author’s note soooo.... Hang on to your chairs and napkins (if you're the emotional type) because this final confrontation is about to get down and emotional! 3..... 2.... 1......
Sailor Moon went inside the church, she looked around to see if the group was still present. But they were there, just the tons on red and gold seats just like the whole church, windows with images of Jesus Christ and Hail Mary together along with the angels and a lamb just sitting there on the grass. The church was quite stunning and very beautiful.
"Hello? Guys! I'm here!" She called, but the only thing that answered back was her own echo.
She looked over and ran to another door that led to the big attic of the church. She opened the door and as she slowly walked up the stairs, she could hear her friends screaming.
"Oh no! He's got them! Hang on guys! I'm coming!" With that she courageously ran up the stairs to the big attic for Mini Moon and her friends' sake.
Right after, Nature slowly opened the church door entrance, and peeked inside, it was quiet. Too quiet.
"Hello? Sailor Moon?"
She looked over at the wide open door that Sailor Moon left out of.
"Oh, she must have went upstairs; I've got to follow her. I hope she doesn't see me"
Sailor Moon busted open the door and what she saw was appalling. There they were, the scouts and guardians tied up, struggling to get out but unfortunately couldn't.
She ran over to them. "You guys!" She struggled to break the ropes but it was just no use, they were way too strong and tight to break.
"Don't worry..... About us!" Said Mars through struggles.
"Yeah Moonie! Go.... Save Mini Moon" Jack also said while trying to struggle out of the tight sand ropes but failing each time.
She looked over and he was, Pitch Black just standing there smirking at her, and lastly, Mini Moon. Strapped tight on the stone table with the sand ropes from top to bottom. Even her mouth was covered and all she could do was muffle through it, trying to scream for help.
Her eyes widened with huge shock and fear.
That's right. Fear.
And Pitch loved to see that in hers and the guardians' and scouts' eyes. It made him grow stronger and Sailor Moon knew that how he wanted her to feel but she wasn't going to let him feed that off of her, especially when she knew that Mini Moon was counting on her.
"Mini Moon!" She called to her, almost shedding tears.
Pitch chuckled. "Ah! Sailor Moon, so nice for you to finally drop by. I was going to start this little ceremony without you but I decided that it would be fun to watch you suffer about your little spore turning to my side" he explained while smirking.
"No. NO! YOU WOULDNT DARE! If think you're going to hurt Mini Moon, you're going to have to hurt me instead" Sailor Moon spat.
"Very well" pitch made a sand shaped sword, getting ready to fight and maybe might kill Sailor Moon. "If you say so" he said darkly.
"SAILOR MOON! LOOK OUT!" The scouts and guardians shouted.
He charged right at her but he missed when Sailor Moon dodged him, causing the sword to just attack the brick wall that only had a huge sliced crack in it. He pulled it out and turned his head towards Sailor Moon, he looked like she didn't wanted to fight him but he didn't really care, he just wanted her and the scouts and guardians, especially Jack, defeated and destroyed.
"Pitch wait! I don't-"
But she was cut off by him trying to take a jab at him but he again missed by one percent, meaning that he left a cut on her arm.
"Ah!" She slightly mumbled, holding her right arm.
Pitch laughed at her. "Awww what's the matter, princess? Can't take a minor injury?" He mocked her.
"Pitch, wait! Please-"
Pitch charged at her once again........
"Ugh!" He mumbled loudly as he was stopped by a kick in the stomach..... By Sailor Moon. He dropped down on his knees and his dissolving sand sword, holding his stomach in pain, panting and coughing heavily.
She looked down at him, kneeling to him now finally getting his attention.
"Pitch, I don't want to fight you" she told him in a soft tone.
"WHAT?!" The group exclaimed, couldn't believe what she had just said.
"HMMM????!" Muffled Mini Moon.
He looked up, looking into her blue eyes in disbelief.
"In fact, I wanna talk to you"
Pitch didn't believe that she really wanted to talk and now thinks this is one of her tricks so she can have him defeated once again and she and the others could win. He gritted his teeth showing a scary expression, growling.
Sailor Moon gasped. Before she knew it, Pitch hand was wrapped around her neck, lifting her up with no effort.
"GAH! ERR! LET.....ME.... GO!" She said while he was choking her.
"SAILOR MOON!" The group exclaimed. Jacks face became bright red in anger as he watched Sailor Moon being strangled by Pitch. He struggled hard to get out of those tight hard ropes but they were still not splitting once. There was nothing he could do at this moment but watch in terror.
"Talk?! About what exactly? If you think I’m going to fall for your little peace maker act, you’re sadly mistaken!" He spat.
"Please, I'm...... not trick you! Let me go and just please hear…. me out!!” Sailor Moon tried to struggle through his grip.
He narrowed his eyes at her. “Oh really?! And why should I let you talk it out with me?! What kind of game are you trying to play? Huh, Moon?!”
I know you..... Weren’t always bad. But you.... had a family once….. Didn’t you?"
Pitch eyes widened and his heart skipped a beat when he heard that mention of that. But how did she know about that?
He threw her across the floor, rubbing her neck, trying to catch her breath while coughing. It was a relief for the guardians and scouts that he didn't choke her to death, thank god that he didn't. They thought she was done for and so did she.
Meanwhile, Mother Nature was sitting on the stone cold steps by the door which was creaked so nobody could see or hear her, but she can hear them. She heard the whole fight between her father and Sailor Moon. She was still bitter towards him but she knew she couldn’t be for long.
Pitch walked up to Sailor Moon with a stern and very concerned look on his face. “What did you just ask me?” He growled.
She looked up at him and slowly got up off the ground, hoping that he won’t attack her anymore after hearing this. “I Know this sounds crazy but…… you may act cold and unfeeling but down inside, you’re just misunderstood and also…. lonely. Aren’t you?”
Pitch just stood there and stared at her. He knew that was true but he just didn’t want to admit it to anyone or to himself.
“Didn’t you have a daughter? Her name was Mother Nature” She mentioned. Hoping that the mention of her name will ring a bell.
“What?!” He exclaimed. “How did you-”
Sailor Moon cut him off.
“You can’t lie to me Pitch! Because I just met her earlier in the forest” She explained. She turned around to the scouts and guardians. “That’s why it took me so long for me so long to catch up with you guys and I apologize”
They smiled at her which was their way of saying apology accepted. She turned back around to face Pitch.
"She was really bitter when I mentioned your name. I tried to get her to come see you but.... She refused to. So please, tell me what happened to you, Pitch” she slowly walked up to him then stopped in her track so she wouldn't get too close. "I promise, I won't judge you..... None of us will. So please, tell me what happened"
He heavily sighed. He knew it would hurt him talking about it but it’s going to also hurt more if he didn't.
"Yes Moon" he admitted. "I wasn't always like this. I..... Was human"
"You were..... Human?"
He nodded. "I was a hero as well, and had a family. I was so happy in my old life before all of this"
Everybody in the whole place was shocked at what he just admitted. Especially, the guardians. That's what Mini Moon has been trying to tell her and Jack before she ended in this mess.
"Really? But, then what happened?"
But Pitch just kept silent.
"Pitch, you have to tell me what happened. I can't help you if you don't" Sailor Moon said calmly.
Pitch shook his head and sighed. "I loved my family. I really did. Especially my daughter. One day, I thought she was in danger. So I went for her 'rescue' but then I learned it was all a trick.... By them"
"......the fearlings. It wasn't her at all. I was such a fool back then for falling that trick. Before I knew it, they were all pile up on me. And I became...... This. They made me kill my wife and I was very disgusted of what I did. That's what has happened back then. And my daughter, she was my whole world. I would do anything for her, if she were here right now; I would just tell her straight up that I didn't mean anything that happened. And that..... I love her" he turned away from her slowly so he wouldn't have to let nobody in the area see him, the bogeyman, shed a single tear.
Little did he know, Mother Nature has heard everything that her father just admitted. She couldn't believe that all these years that she was angry at him, all for nothing. And something inside of her started to blossom. She gripped her chest and tears began to roll down her face. "Oh daddy" she sobbed quietly.
Sailor Moon walked up to him rested her hand on his back in reassurance. "Oh Pitch. I'm so sorry that has happened to you"
He wiped his watery eyes and shrugged. "Yeah, but hey! What you can do right?" He replied through sniffles. "It’s all my fault that my daughter hates my guts! And it’s my fault for my loneliness! But this is who I am now. The Boogeyman!"
The guardians felt deeply sorry for Pitch, they took back every bad thing they said about him and so did the scouts as well.
"I wish there was some way I could help you. But first, please let Mini Moon and my friends go"
Pitch lifted his head up and turned around, facing Sailor Moon. Not saying a word. Squinting his at her.
She smiled up at him trustfully "I promise you"
He sighed sadly.
"What's wrong?" She asked.
"Nothing. It’s just that well. Can you bring her to me?" He asked.
"Mother Nature? But I don't know where she is now"
Before they knew, Mother Nature herself busted through the door, catching everyone's attention.
"Nature?" Sailor Moon said. She didn't know that Nature has been listening and thought she had vanished.
"E... Emily?" Said Pitch, couldn't believe she was here, and was she just listening to the whole conversation? He wondered that in his mind but at this moment, it didn't matter.
"FATHER!!!" She called to him through sobs. Her eyes were teary.
"What are you doing-"
Before he could ask, she ran right into his arms and hugged him in embrace. Also causing him and her to be on the floor. He was so surprised that he couldn't say anything.
"Emily. You're..... Hugging me"
She looked up him, tears fell down her face. "Oh I know daddy! I know!"
"Did you hear everything I had just said?" Pitch asked.
"Oh yes father! I've heard everything! I'm so sorry that I was angry with you without knowing why you did it! I'm really sorry!" She apologized.
"So.... Does that mean you-"
"Yes. I forgive you! I love you father"
After hearing those special words, Pitch smiled and tears began to fall, they weren't tears of sadness but tears of joy and happiness. Something he hasn't felt for a very long time.
"I love you too Emily" he replied back with a smile. They both hugged each other. "And I forgive you as well"
Everyone, even Jack surprisingly, smiled at the two, feeling very happy for Pitch. And they never thought they would be.
"Oh, I just love a happy ending" Tooth commented, crying with tears of joy too like the others.
Sailor Moon walked up to the two, kneeling down to their level. "I'm very happy that you two have made up"
Pitch looked at her, smiling. "Thank you so much, Sailor Moon"
She giggled. "Hey! It was nothing!" Rubbing the back of her neck.
"Oh! I forgot something!"
"What?!" Replied both Nature and Moon.
Pitch jolted up from the floor and ran over to a still tied up Mini Moon. He snapped his fingers and the ropes and straps vanished.
She sat up from the stone table, coughed and hit her chest.
"I'm sorry for All the trouble I've caused for you" Pitch apologized remorsefully.
Mini Moon smiled in forgiveness and hugged him. "That's ok. I forgive you"
"HEY! WHAT ABOUT US?!" The scouts and guardians reminded by shouting.
"Oh! Psh! I almost forgot about you too!" Pitch slapped a hand on his forehead dumbfounded and snapped his fingers; the sandy black ropes vanished as well.
They jumped up and stretched.
"Aaah! Feels so good to be free" said Bunnymund.
"You said it" agreed Mars.
"SAILOR MOON! JACK!" Mini Moon exclaimed happily.
"RINI!" They both said back.
She ran into both of their arms.
"Oh Mini Moon I thought we would lose you for good" said Sailor Moon through sobs.
"Well, you were wrong. Here I am! Fine and dandy!" Mini Moon said cutely.
"Pinky I'm so glad you're safe" said Jack. Then he hugged Sailor Moon, who had a surprised look on her face “And I’m glad you’re okay too, Moonie”
She blushed slightly. “Oh, uh, thanks Jack, I’m glad you’re safe too?” she replied, giggling. “Okay Jack, that’s enough. JACK!”
“Oh!” Jack snapped out of it and stopped hugging her, blushing hard, embarrassed. “I… I… I’m sorry Moonie, It’s just that, well….. Oh you know what I meant”
They exchanged giggled.
"Awww how cute!" complimented Venus, jokingly. Everyone laughed at them.
“Oh shut up you guys! It’s wasn’t like that!” Sailor Moon yelled.
Mini Moon turned around smiling. "There's something I need to do"
They got a confused look on their face. Mini Moon ran up behind Nature and Pitch.
"What is it?"
"I'm really glad that you don't feel lonely anymore and I hope someday, we can be friends"
Nature and Pitch looked at each other then Mini Moon, smiling.
He looked up and rubbed his chin, pretended that he was thinking about it. "Hmmmm, maybe" he replied.
She giggled and turned to Mother Nature, curtsying to her. "Hello Mother Nature, it’s very nice to meet you"
Flattered, Mother Nature curtsied to her as well, "and it’s very nice to meet you too, Mini Moon"
They exchanged smiles.
The groups walked up from behind.
"Pitch" Tooth began to apologize "we are deeply sorry for-"
But he held his hand up, cutting her off. "It’s fine. It’s fine. You're all forgiven"
"GROUP HUUUG!" Shouted North.
"HUH?!" Said the scouts, confused.
"Oh no!" Said Jack.
Before they all knew it, everyone, including Pitch and Nature, were all under North's big strong arms. Almost suffocating them.
"Ah! He's squishing us!" Said Mini Moon through struggles.
"Hey Santa! You could, Oh I don't know, LET US GO BEFORE WE SUFFOCATE TO DEATH!" yelled Sailor Moon.
"Oh! Sorry" He let them all go, letting them breathe. "Sorry, I get a little too passionate"
"So what's next for you and Mother Nature?" Sailor Moon asked them.
"Well, we were thinking of trying to spend more father and daughter time together-"
"BUT ONLY if I'm not busy" Added Pitch.
She crossed her arms and rolled her eyes, smirking.
"What? It’s true" said Pitch.
"Whatever father" she giggled in response.
"Oh before we go, I would just like to say....... Frost, we're still not friends so don't get any ideas, no offense"
Jack shrugged. "None taken" He replied in a smirk.
"And I apologize to all of you for putting you through all of this tonight and I hope you will find it your hearts to forgive me. If you don't, I completely understand"
"So father, I believe we should be going" reminded Mother Nature.
"I believe so" said Pitch.
With that, they left into the darkness together; going to god knows where they went.
"And I think we should be going too" said Sailor Moon.
Everyone agreed with her and nodded.
Finally, A happy ending for all of them, especially Mini Moon, Pitch and Mother Nature. Not only was Nature was saved from her long time grudge but she also found it in her heart to forgive. Which was a very hard thing for her to do but she did and now, her and her father can finally have a second chance.
A second chance to be a family again. A/N: YAY A Happy ending for the boogeyman! did you cry? If so, here's a tissue *gives you Kleenex*
If not, well, that's Ok. I'm not completely the emotional type either xD
I hope you guys enjoy this final confrontation chapter. If you’re wondering if Pitch will fall in love and get married? The answer is....
