At the Youth Center..../
"How did everything go with you and Kat last night, Adam? Adam, HELLO!! You look like you're in another world, bro." Jason said.
"What? Oh. I had a wonderful time last night." Adam responded, and promptly blushed a deep shade of red as he remember Kat and him kissing when he took her home. _It wasn't a friendly kiss, it was a lover's. I've never kissed a girl that way before. I'd better talk to Kat._
BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP!!!!!
Adam and Jason went into a dark corner. "What is it, Zordon?" Jason asked.
"Jason, the other Rangers are being attacked by tengas in the park. Tengas are bird-warriors, so be careful." Zordon told them.
"IT'S MORPHIN' TIME!!!!!!" Adam shouted. "Black Ranger Power!"
"Red Ranger Power!"
At the Battlesite....
"Let's get that girl!" Zedd shouted, pointing to Kat.
"An excellent choice, my love, since she's the Black Ranger's girlfriend." Rita shrieked.
"I don't know who you're talking about." Kat cried.
"Ah, forget kidnapping her, Zedd, let's just KILL her instead!" Rita said.
"Alrighty then." Zedd said, nodding his approval.
As they were about to blast her, a voice cried out: "Kat, NO!!!" Time seemed to stop as a figure clothed in black spandex jumped in front of her at the last second. "Ahhhhhhhh!!!!" Adam groaned as the evil energies of the universe went through him and threatened to rip him apart. He was suspended in air for a few seconds, then was thrown at a rock, which destroyed his helmet on impact.
"Adam!" Kat yelled as she ran to him. As soon as she touched him, they were both teleported to the Command Center. The rest of the Rangers joined them, as they had chased Rita and Zedd and their minions off of the Earth.
At the Command Center....
"Where am I?" Kat asked.
"You are in the Power Ranger's command center. I am Zordon, and this is my assistant, Alpha Five. We guide the Power Rangers in their never-ending quest against evil." Zordon said.
"Zordon, how is he? Billy asked.
"He has suffered a major power drain, but he will not lose his powers. But the strain of the blast has greatly weakened him. Unless he recovers soon, he may die." Zordon paused, then continued. "While we were examining him, we found out that Adam is not human. Instead, he is an Edenite. He probably has known it since his birth. I have received word from a friend that tells me that the Machine Empire is coming. I have kept track of them from the start. Rangers, your Power Coins are not strong enough to defeat them. That is why I want you to do this. Concentrate your energy on Adam. This energy will give Adam enough time to find the two parts of the Zeo Crystal, and allow him to survive."
"We'll do it, Zordon." Jason said as the others nodded their agreement.
The energy flowed to Adam and he began to wake up. "I have to get the Zeo Crystal." Adam said. "Back to action."
At the enterance to the Caves of Deception....
"I am King Adam, give me the Crystal I forged!" Adam demanded.
"You have returned to claim what is rightfully yours. From your voice, I know it is truly you who forged the Crystal. Here it is. Now I can rest." the voice said.
"Now on to the next one." Adam said.
On the planet Tritonnicus....
"Loyal and faithful servant, give your King his Crystal." Adam commanded.
"Your majesty, it is good to see you again. Take you Crystal that I may have my eternal sleep," the old man said.
"Thank you. You have saved the Earth and me once more." Adam reponded.
At the Power Chamber....
"What's wrong, Kat?" Kimberly asked.
"I... I nearly killed Adam. I didn't know how much he meant to me until he almost died for me." Kat replied.
"Don't worry, I've known Adam for a long time, and I know he'll make it." Aisha said.
"You really think so?" Kat asked.
"Girl, I know so. Besides, he has a lot to live for."
"Rangers, I am detecting a monster in Angel Grove. You must go and battle it." Zordon said.
"IT'S MORPHIN' TIME!!" Jason roared.
"Orange Ranger Power!"
"Purple Ranger Power!"
"Green Ranger Power!"
"White Ranger Power!"
"Pink Ranger Power!"
"Blue Ranger Power!"
"Yellow Ranger Power!"
"Red Ranger Power!
In Downtown Angel Grove....
"Iyah!" Jason cried as he kicked Rito in the stomach.
"Wuzzah!" Rocky yelled as he took out two tengas and a putty.
"Hiyah!" Trini shouted as she punched Rito in the face.
"I don't think this is fair! Putties, Tengas, RETREAT!!!!!!" Rito called as he teleported back to the moon to face his sister's wrath.
At the Command Center....
"Katherine, the Rangers and I have entrusted you to a very important secret. Will you keep it?" Zordon anked.
"Of course I will! Besides, you guys are my friends! Why would I do a thing like that?!" Kat replied.
"Hey! Guess who's back with the Zeo Crystal!" a voice called out.
"Adam!" Kat yelled as she ran to him and gave him a long kiss.
"It's nice to see you too, Kat. There's something I wanna tell you." he looked deep into her eyes and said, "I love you. I'll do anything for you." Kat immediately fainted.
