Green Ranger
By Jennifer Garst

I am the Green Ranger, and I love it. If you had told me once that I would be the Green Ranger I would have laughed at you. But now I can't imagine a day going by when I would be a Power Rangers. The Power is a Part of me, it makes me feel whole. I can't believe I've found so many good friends. I used to be a longer, a boy with a home. But I never really had any friends, sure there were a few people I hung out with, we all have a few like that. I couldn't talk to them about how I felt though. Not like I can talk to Jason, and the rest of the guys. Then there's Kimberly, my girl friends. I knew I was in love with her, the first time I ever was her, at the Karate Tournament. I still can't believe she actually feels the same as I do. My life as not been easy, I will not go into the details you do not need to hear them. Still I haven't thought about that time since I came here, well not every much any way. I used to live in Stone Canyon, one of the towns near Angle Grove. Then Rita Repulsa put me under her evil spell, and made me into the Evil Green Ranger. I have my dark side yes, more so then the others. But I don't let it show, I keep it locked up inside most of the time.
But I can talk to Kimberly, and she understands how I feel, so does Jason. I don't know about the others, they're nice, Billy, Zack, and Trini. I know we're friends, I know I can trust them, and count on them to be there when I need them, but I don't know I still don't feel comfortable talking to me about everything. We all wear a mask sometimes I wonder what sort of masks they wear, to hide the pain of different things. At first I thought it would be hard being part of a team. I didn't want to share myself with them, I wanted to stay the way I was. But you know it's not at all what I thought it would be, and I wouldn't give it up for the world. I don't think I could live without Kimberly, she's the one person who total understands me. She knows what it's been like, she sees me as I am and doesn't care. She loves me for who I am, and for who I have been. I don't know what I'd do without her, sometimes I think I would go crazy if I didn't see her happy smile everyday. See her coming running with a bounce in her step, always ready to help others, always there when I need her. I can go to her when ever I have a problem and she'll do everything she can to help. I would do anything for Kimberly, anything in the world. She seems more to me then anything else, I would give up the Power, I would do anything she asked, if she would just stay here with me. If Zedd ever tries something, he'd better be ready, cause I'll kill him with my bear hands if I have to, I promise you I will do it, and no one had better try and stop me. I never thought I would find happiness like this, and now I can't imagine living without it. Thank you lord for this, thank you for everything Kimberly, and the others. For the First time in my life things are starting to go right, for the first time I feel truly happy.

(Tommy smiles, as he looked at the green writing on the page. He closed it before slipping out of his room, and down the stairs. All that writing made his starving. It was still early in the morning. He headed back up to his room, pulled on an old pair of green sweats, and headed out to practice while it was still cool outside. A happy smile on his face.)
