She woke up, disoriented to the surrounds around her. The cold penetrated her body, while pain throbbed in her shoulder. Where am I? It’s so cold... she thought to herself, slowly trying to sit up, bonking her helmet on a wall above her.
Wait a minute, helmet? She thought to herself, looking at her gloved hands. I’m morphed? She placed her hands on the wall and found latches where she could open the box like coffin she was confined in. Her hands felt weak and numb, but she pushed with all her might and was able to open the box. Slowly, she crawled out of the box, falling down on the floor.
She looked around the area, finding herself on some sort of ship, in a room with a bluish glow. A man in a black cloak stood watching her. As she struggled up to her feet, her legs felt like jello. “Kai...” She whispered hoarsely, her throat feeling like it was stuffed with cotton. Can it be him?
The stranger chuckled in annoying sort of way, ”I am afraid not, Silver Galaxy Ranger.” Well , well, I was right about her liking that blue boy. The stranger thought to himself as he looked at the battered Silver Ranger.
She frowned, ”Who are you?” If that is not Kai, then where am I am and how is it I am alive?
The stranger walked in front of her and tossed off his cloak.
She gasped. ”But...but..how? You’re ..you’re...suppose to be on Earth?”
The guy chuckled once again. ”Well we do have other forms of transportation. I guess you just found yourself lucky to be rescued by the best of the best.”
She shook her head and looked annoy at the stranger, who was morphed as the Silver Astro Ranger. Talk about egotistical!
He chuckled at her and demorphed, causing her eyes widen more behind her helmet. There in front of her stood a boy with deep gray eyes and silver hair. Well, his pictures don’t do him any justice. She sighed and demorphed as well. She looked down at herself and noticed that her clothing was still burnt from the fight. Thank god I wasn’t hallucinating about that fight.
She looked up at the stranger. ”Who are you?” Never did pay attention to his name.
He face dimpled in a charming way. ”The name is Zhane. I am the Silver Ranger from KO-35. And you are..?”
She sighed. ”My name is Elizabeth Chang. I guess...I’m the Silver Galaxy Ranger of Terra Venture. Well, sort of...” Well, what was I suppose to say? ‘Umm...I appear and disappear like a shadow’? She thought tiredly to herself.
Zhane shook his head. ”And you have a crush on old blue boy, I bet.”
Liz blushed. ”Yes, I...umm...where are we?” *Was I that obvious? Did I hover over him so much?* She unconsciously projected.
Zhane grinned. “You are on the Astro Megaship.” * And, yes, you were that obvious.* Zhane projected back, unaware of what he was doing until after he did it. He noticed that she was looking at him in shock.
* Did you just do what I just thought you just did?* They both projected at the same time.
Zhane shook his head. ”This is so weird. I thought only KO-35er’s could possess telepathic abilities.”
Liz frowned in thought. ”Not really. In theory, Earth people can do it to some extent, if they just use more percentage of their brain.” Is this just a dream that I am going to wake up from?
Zhane shook his head. ”I have no idea...of course I never met anyone on Earth who possessed these qualities.”
Liz shrugged her shoulders and sighed. ”I guess not that many people on Earth would reveal that they are telepathic. “
Zhane frowned, ”Why?”
She looked at Zhane sadly. ”If we did, then we would have been taken against our will and exploited to use our abilities for evil causes.”
Zhane shook his head. ”That seems harsh.”
Liz nodded her head. ”Yes, but that was the way I lived. Of course, I am adopted. I never knew my real parents that well.”
Zhane shook his head to clear his thoughts. ”Come on, Elizabeth Chang of Earth. We better find you some new clothes, if we are not caught on this ship.”
Liz frowned. ”Speaking of which, why are we on the Astro Megaship? If my memory serves me correctly, it was taken by the Galaxy Rangers.”
He nods his head. ”Yeah, but I needed to place you in that freezer to keep you alive.”
Liz sighs, ”Why are you here exactly?”
He smirked in a knowing look. ”Simple. I’m beating my best friend, Andros, to the punch.”
She looked at him in confusion, ”What?”
Zhane chuckled. ”Andros is the Red Ranger of KO-35.”
Liz’s eyes opened wide. ”Oh, you mean that boy who has striped hair?”
Zhane laughed more.Oh, if Andros could hear this... “You can say that to me, but don’t let him catch you calling him that. You see, some data cards were stolen and we need to get them back.” He slowly motioned to the door and she followed Zhane in puzzlement.
“Why do you need these data cards?” She whispered in a low tone.
Zhane sighed and looked at Liz. ”The data cards contain the Psycho Rangers.”
Liz gasped in shock. ”Oh lord.”
He nodded his head. ”Exactly. You see, when Andros finds out about this, he will scramble all the way over to Terra Venture, because that’s where the data cards were taken to.”
Zhane opened the door and tugged Liz inside. They then tip toed to a door with a silver star next to it. Zhane entered the room and pulled Liz in after him, shutting the door behind them.
“Now, lets find you some clothing,” he murmured as he headed to the closet, scanning through it.
Liz sighed and sat on a chair. “Where are we?”
“In my room,” he murmured, tossing clothing left and right over his shoulder. “Tell me, how did you meet o blue boy?”
Liz chuckled, ”His name is Kai Chen. We met when we were small, you could say.” Her eyes misted with memorizes. “I was around five...”
Liz was swinging on the swing set when she noticed a figure in the distance. She jumped off the swing, her long black hair shining in the sun as she landed on her feet.
Liz walked closer to the figure, who was practicing some sort of martial arts style. His black spiky hair was drooping down from the sweat he had worked up. She looks puzzled when he slumped defeatedly and sat on the ground panting heavily. “What’s wrong?” She asked, puzzled, and saw the boy jump up in defensive stance.
“Nothing, ” he murmured as he got back into defensive stance.
Liz blinked in curiosity. ”Then why did you look defeated for a second?”
He looked up, exhausted. ”I can’t seem to get this technique down and if I don’t my father is going to lecture me.”
Liz frowned. ”Maybe you need to relax a bit.”
He looked at her warily. ”What would a girl know about martial arts?”
Her eyes flashed in anger. ”Let’s spar and you’ll see what this girl can do.”
He looked at her unconcernedly and got into a defensive stance. ”I am not going to be easy on you just because you are a girl.”
Liz narrowed her eyes in focus. ”Whatever..” They both circled each other warily. Kai then went on the offense and threw his fist out at her. She immediately blocked his arm and swiped his feet from under him. He fell and got back to his feet once again. He then tried to use a combination of a punch kick, but to his frustration, she blocked them and push him away.
He panted hard and looked defeated. ”I stand corrected.”
Liz looked at him, her breath still short from the sparring. ”Well, I will make a deal with you then.”
He looked at her warily, ”What?”
Liz grinned mischievously, ”I will teach you what you are doing wrong if...”
He frowned, ”If what?”
She continued on. ”If you will tell me your name and be my friend.”
”Why do you want to be my friend?”
Liz sighed. ”You look like you need one right now.” He started to open his mouth to retort but she beat him to the punch. “And I want to be your friend.” She watched his mouth quickly shut and open again.
He then changed his mind on what he was going to say. ”I’m Kai Chen and I will be happy to be your friend.”
Liz smiled. ”Then Kai, lets fix whatever is wrong with those steps.” He smiled at her and nodded his head in agreement.
Zhane chuckled. ”So, that was how it began.” He pulled out a silver shirt and sighed. “I’m afraid this is the only thing that I have that might fit you.”
Liz shrugged. ”It’s alright, but I can go home and...good lord I forgot!!” She slapped her hand to her forehead and groaned.
Zhane frowned and looked at Liz in confusion. ”Forgot what?”
Liz rubbed her head tiredly. ”My pet...I forgot to feed my pet or check on him.” She moaned and shook her head. God, I hope he doesn’t flame my room.
Zhane grinned. ”A pet? You’re worried about your pet?” He fell down on the floor laughing. He gasped out, ”You just got stabbed and you’re worrying about your pet!”
She glared at Zhane, ”If your pet could flame your room, you would be worried too.”
Zhane looked nervous all of a sudden. ”Flame your room.....um...what exactly is your pet?”
Liz smirked. ” When I get home, you will see.” She took the shirt from Zhane and looked at him pointedly.
He blinked at her in confusion, ”What?”
Liz glared at him. ”Turn around.” She said the words like she was telling a three year old to behave. She watched him warily. When he turned around and she quickly changed her top. “Okay, I’m done.” She started to roll up the sleeves in five folds and sighed.
He looked at her and chuckled. ”Yeah, well it is really big on you.”
Liz sighed. ”Now what do we do? Also can I go home?”
Zhane sighed. ”Okay, lets go..” She pressed two buttons on her morpher and they both teleported to her room in a flash of silver.
DECA's camera eye turned on after they left," Welcome back Zhane...." Her voice echo in the room as the light turned off.
A inscription on the wall hidden behind the cryotube flashed.
*Memories of a Silver Star will arise. The hope of the world they would
be. May they help the universe they created.*
