Attack of the Turbo Vehicles, Act 1
by Aaron Thall
Wendy walks over to a nearby workbench and looks over the various tools there. After a moment, she selects a Phillips screwdriver.
"So how's it coming, bro?" She walks over to Matt, who is under a large object covered by a white sheet.
"Just about finished. Hand me that screwdriver, will you?" She hands it to him. "Thank you," he adds in a badly faked British accent.
"You're welcome," she responds, in the same accent.
"Tighten this last bolt..." Matt's hand moves around and finds the bolt tightener. He takes it to the underside of the object. After a few seconds, he slides out from under the cloth and pulls himself to his feet. "And that's finished."
"And it's about time," begins Wendy, "We've been working on this ever since that business with Kim and the Terror Toad."
"A full three weeks? Seemed a lot longer." Matt finds a clean towel and begins cleaning off his hands.
Wendy looks at her watch. "OH NO! TOMMY'S RACE! We've gotta go!"
"How time flies... Guess this can wait a little longer. I just wonder how the others will react when they find out what we've been doing."
"We'll find out soon enough. Now come on. Kat's saved us a couple seats." They both activate their communicators and teleport out in columns of purple and gray light, which is reflected off of the Turbo Zords.
And as the lights dim, something bright activates under the white cloth and an engine begins to rev...
SHIFT INTO TURBO! GO(OH...)
MIGHTY ENGINES ROAR!
TURBO CHARGED FOR MORE!
DRIVE FOUR ON THE FLOOR!
GO! POWER RANGERS TURBO, GO! POWER RANGERS TURBO, GO!
POWER RANGERS TURBO...
Angel Grove Speedway...
"AND TOMMY OLIVER IS NOW IN SECOND PLACE!" The announcer's voice booms throughout the Speedway. Below, ten cars fought for the lead position. Tommy was a full car's length behind the leader.
"COME ON, TOMMY!" yells Kat from the stands.
"You can do it!" adds Tanya.
"Just a little faster..." mutters Adam.
Inside his car, Tommy was thinking the same things.
"Time to shift into high gear!" Tommy hits the gas and his car moves faster than ever before. The speedometer needle hits the red line as Tommy's car slowly but surely takes the lead.
"I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT! TOMMY OLIVER HAS TAKEN FIRST PLACE!"
Matt and Wendy run up the stairs towards the other Rangers. After a moment, they reach their seats.
"So what's going on?" asks Wendy. "We just teleported in."
"Tommy's just taken first place!" responds Kat.
"Glad to hear it." says Matt. "Although I really can't see what you see in this..."
"Funny, considering that you work with us." retorts Tanya.
"Point taken, but cars just clash with our style."
Back on the racetrack, Tommy's car is now ahead by little more than a nose. The cars race like bullets past the checkered flag.
"AND THE WINNER, BY A NOSE, IS TOMMY OLIVER IN CAR 15!"
"ALRIGHT!" exclaims Tommy.
"Let's go!" says Adam as the others get out of their seats.
Justin puts his racing team cap back on his head as Tommy drives his car into the garage.
"WAY TO GO!" says Justin as Tommy pulls himself out of the car.
"Couldn't have done it without you." They give each other a high five. The others run into the garage.
"Great race, Tommy!" says Wendy before patting him on the back.
"All I can say is that, after this, fighting Lord Zedd seems like a piece of cake!" Tommy removes his helmet and uses a towel to wipe his brow.
"Please, don't mention him!" responds Matt. "Ruins the mood."
"Are you kidding?" asks Justin. "Even he couldn't mess up today!" ***
Lord Zedd's palace...
"Even he couldn't mess up today!" Zedd watches as the Rangers celebrate Tommy's victory.
"So, you think I can't ruin your day, do you? We'll see about THAT, won't we?" And with those cryptic words, Zedd's visor begins to glow...
