Chapter 1

Scene 1
Setting: At the Surf Spot

Jason Scott: Hey Tommy, I just got off the phone with Trini, she said she'd be here tomorrow.

Tommy Oliver: Great! Can you believe it, all of us together again? I can't wait to see everyone!

Jason: Now all we have to do is wait to hear from Kim to find out when her plane arrives from Orlando. She said she'd be calling us about 5 our time.

Adelle: Hey Jason telephone call for you! Itís someone named Kimberly Hart.

Jason: Why don't you answer the phone? You are the one who keeps saying you're over Kim. Just go say hi!

They both walk over to get the phone.

Jason: Kim?

Kimberly: Jason! I got your letter, I called my flight agent and I'll be home tomorrow night. This was a great idea to have a reunion party. You would not believe how much I have missed all of you guys!

Jason: I know, I have missed everyone too. I've got someone here who would like to talk to you.

Tommy takes phone.

Tommy: Hello Kim?

Kimberly: Oh my gosh Tommy? How have you been?

Tommy: Pretty good, just been hanging out here in Angel Grove. Howís your gymnastics been going?

Kimberly: Thatís great to hear. My gymnastics have been going great! Everyone here is so nice! I can not wait to see you guys!

Tommy: Kim we better end this phone call. Adelle is trying to get me off the phone she needs to use it. See you tomorrow OK?

Kimberly: Tell Jason good bye for me. Bye Tommy!

Scene 2, Orlando,
Kimberly and her roommate Allison Williams Apartment.

Allison Williams: Hey Kim, everyoneís headed to the cafe to grab a late dinner you want to come?

Kimberly: Not tonight, I have to pack my plane leaves at 2:00 PM for Angel Grove tomorrow. I haven't even started packing yet.

Allison: Are you sure you're ready to see Tommy again? You were a mess after you wrote that letter to him. Do you think you can handle seeing him again. By the way does he even know whom you broke up with him for?

Kimberly: Yeah I think I am ready for this trip. Last time I saw Tommy he was pretty close to Kat. I do not think that has changed. To answer your second question, the answer is no. How could I have possibly been able to tell Tommy that the guy was Jason? I did not want to ruin their friendship. It is not like we meant for it to happen! Jase came to see me right after I came here, it just sort of happened! Neither Jason nor I wanted it that way.

Allison: He might figure it out when he sees you with Jason this week.

Kimberly: True, but he does have Kat, and he does seem to love her a great deal. (Looking through her closet) Hey can I borrow your Mickey Mouse T-shirt for the trip?

Chapter 2

Scene 1
The next afternoon

Angel Grove International Airport.

Jason and Tommy are patiently waiting for everyoneís planeís to start arriving. Zack Taylor, Trini Kwan, and Katherine Hillard, all had the same plane leaving London. They were the first oneís to arrive

Tommy: Jase their they are! Kat, Trini, Zack over here!

Huge group hug.

Zack: You mean we are the first oneís here? Cool! So whose flight is next to arrive?

Tommy: Um (Looks at Watch) Tanya and Aishaís. We better get moving or we won't be there to greet them!

Scene 2
Later that night

Jason and Tommyís apartment in Angel Grove. Everyone is there drinking sodas and sharing stories.

Adam (finishing a story): ...and then the Fraternity President looks at Rocky and says; "Hey you, I need a refill of coffee." He thought Rocky was one of the caterers!

Everyone laughs at the story.

Aisha: Well Tanya and I have been pretty busy in Africa. She has really helped her tribe through the drought that they have been having. I have to tell you guys this much, though I love Africa, I missed being with you guys! Meeting you guys meant so much to me. By the way Kat how has your ballet been going? Tanya told me you were studying ballet in London.

Kat: It has been tough, the teachers there are a lot harder then they are here. It was also tough being away from all of you guys. But London has been good for me.

Trini: Zack I think we had better tell everyone.

Everyone exchanges confused glances.

Zack: Right before Trini and I left for home I asked her to marry me and.....she accepted!

Rocky: Hey congratulations you two! I for one hope you two are happy together. Hey Jase are there any more chips? I'm starving!

Everyone Groans at Rockyís question.

Chapter 3

Scene 1: Lunar Palace.

Lord Zedd: So those former Power Rangers think there gonna have a party. Well we certainly can not let them enjoy their reunion.

Rito: Ed they are not Power Rangers anymore whatís the point?

Lord Zedd: Thatís Zedd, you idiot! I'll tell you the point. Those former power brats have foiled too many of my plans, and have always given me trouble, especially that Tommy Oliver. Goldar!

Goldar: Yes my lord?

Lord Zedd: I want you to contact Dark Spectre right now. Tell him we are in need of Dierdraís services right away.

Rita: Zeddie are you sure you want to use her? Have you heard what sheís capable of doing?

Lord Zedd: Of course I know what she can do! Why do you think I am asking for her? I know she will be able to make one of my plans work, unlike the rest of the henchmen in here. Those former power punks will not have a happy holiday this year! I will make sure of it! Ha Ha Ha

Scene 2:
The Surf Spot The next afternoon

Tommy, Jason, Kimberly and Kat are playing a game of pool.

Jason: Kim I forgot to ask you yesterday, what does your mother think of your not going to France for Christmas?

Kimberly: She hates it of course, but what can she do? I told her I wanted to spend Christmas with all my friends.

Kat: Well my parents absolutely love the fact that I am home for the holidays. They told me that if I had not planned on coming home for Christmas, they would have taken a flight to London anyway. 8 ball right corner pocket.

Eight ball goes in the corner pocket. Tommy leans over and gives her a kiss on the cheek.

Tommy: Great Job Kat!

Kimberly: Kat I do believe Jason and Tommy owe us dinner! How does that new French restaurant by the lake sound to you?

Kat: Sounds great to me!

Jason and Tommy groan.

Scene 3:
Jason and Tommyís apartment that night

Tommy: Hey bro I noticed that you and Kim seem to have gotten close. You gonna tell me about it?

Jason: Well Tommy Kim and I did start dating awhile back.

Tommy: Hey I am happy for you guys. You do make a good couple. Hey Jase can you keep a secret?

Jason: Bro you know I can!

Tommy goes to his room and retrieves something. Comes back a minute later.

Tommy: Jason you must not tell Kat this, but at the party I am gonna ask her to marry me.

Jason: Oh wow Tommy! I really do hope you and Kat have a happy life together.

Tommy: Same with you and Kim. Oh shoot Jase weíre late!

Chapter 4

Scene 1: Lunar Palace the next day

Finster: Lord Zedd I just got message that Miss Dierdra will be arriving very shortly.

Lord Zedd: Good. This is looking better every minute.

There is a flash of light and a Woman appears. Sheís about 6í2, has red hair. She glares at the palace.

Dierdra: I was informed by Dark Spectre that you needed me for some plan of yours. May I ask what it is? My work goes much easier when I know what Iím here to do.

Lord Zedd: Here is what we need you for...

Scene 2
Angel Grove Park, the day of the party.

Tommy and Jason are walking through the park.

Jason: I talked to Ashley Harmond earlier. Ashley told me that she, Andros, Zhane, Cassie, TJ, and Carlos will be all there. Unless of course something happens and they are needed. I wonder what Andros and Zhane are like?

Tommy: Me too. Itís great that they all can make it though. I talked to Justin this morning and he said he will be there, and believe it or not so will Bulk and Skull.

Jason: Well I guess it wouldnít be a reunion Party without them.

Tommy: You got me there!

Scene 3
Lunar Palace same time.

Lord Zedd: Ah Jason and Tommy are in the park. Tengas, Putties, and Goldar go down there and bring them up here right away!

Goldar, half dozen putties, and a half dozen Tengas go to the park.

Lord Zedd: Dierdra! Go to the dungeon and get whatever you need ready! They will be arriving very soon.

Dierdra: Of Course Lord Zedd.

Scene 4
Angel Grove Park

Goldar and the putties and Tengas arrive.

Jason: What the heck do you want Goldar? We are no longer Power Rangers why are you bugging us now?

Goldar: Because Lord Zedd wants to see you two again.

Tommy: Fat chance. Ready Jason?

Tommy and Jason start fighting. They are horribly outnumbered, and it doesnít take long for them to get captured. They are taken to Lord Zeddís dungeon. Jason is chained up on the wall, while Squatt gives Tommy some sort of shot.

Jason: Hey leave him alone! Tell Lord Zedd he is not gonna get away with this!

Goldar: He already has Jason. He already has.

Dierdra walks out of shadows of the dungeon. Looks at Jason smirks and then turns her attention to Tommy, who is trying to clear the cobwebs out of his head. Dierdra laughs.

Dierdra: Lord Zedd told me you two were supposed to be two of the hardest Power Rangers that he has encountered. Looking at you two now, I wonder why he thought that. But that doesnít matter now. Goldar you can leave now. You will be informed when I am finished in here.

Tommy tries to sit up, but Dierdra kicks him in the head. Jason starts yelling for her to stop. Tommy gets up slowly and kicks Dierdra. However that shot had really slowed down his response time, and Dierdra is having no trouble at all. Jason keeps trying to get loose of the chains, but he is unsuccessful. He closes his eyes and silently prays that this will stop. Tommyís screams are almost unbearable to hear. Soon Tommy passes out from the pain.

Scene 5
Surf Spot that night:

Tanya: Didnít Tommy and Jason say the party started at 7 PM sharp?

Justin: Yeah they did. It is almost 8:30 now, I wonder where they are?

Aisha: Iíd expect this from Tommy but they are both really late. Iím starting to get really worried.

Kim: Oh God I hope nothing has happened to them.

Bulk: Hey why isnít everyone celebrating itís a party isnít it?

Billy: Bulk Jason and Tommy arenít here yet, we are really starting to worry about them. Give us a break OK?

Skull: Thatís strange that theyíd be this late to their own party. Maybe we should go look for them.

Adam: No letís give them another hour before doing that.

Kat: Whatever you say Adam. I just hope theyíre all right wherever they are.

Ashley whispers to Andros: Maybe we should go to the Megaship and make sure nothings happened.

Andros: I agree. (Loudly) Trini Ashley, and I will be right back we have to go check something.

Trini: OK.

Scene 6
The Dungeon.

Dierdra is no longer in the room. Jason knows she will be back shortly. But tries to see how Tommyís doing.

Jason: Tommy? Tommy are you conscious? (he gets no reply) Come on Bro wake up.

Dierdra: Ah you worried about your friend? It wonít be long till I am done with what I am supposed to do.

Jason: Why are you doing this? Are you under some kind of spell?

Dierdra: Me under some kind of spell? Guess again. I am sure you have heard of Dark Spectre. I work for him. Zedd contacted Spectre and told him they needed me to take care of some business. And here I am. (Dierdra takes out a knife that was carefully hidden in her boot.) One last thing to do. (She throws some sort of dust at Tommy. He opens his eyes he sees the knife and tries to kick Dierdra). Sorry Tommy that will not save you. (Dierdra takes knife and stabs him). See you Jason.

Dierdra vanishes.

Jason: What the heck? Tommy!

Goldar reappears.

Goldar: I see Dierdra has done her work. (He looks at chain) Jason I am surprised your still up there. The chains were never very tight. (Goldar laughs and vanishes)

Jason: Huh? (he twists the chains some more and falls off the wall)

Jason rushes to Tommy. Tommy opens his eyes

Tommy (Weakly): Jase tell the others that I love them. Jason you have been the best friend I have ever had. I do not blame you for me losing my powers as the green ranger, and I do not blame you for anything. I am gonna miss you Jase. (Tommy closes his eyes and dies)

Jason: NO!!!!!!!!!!

Jason and Tommy are teleported back to the park. Jason can no longer take what just happened. Grabs a broken piece of glass, and slashes his wrists.

Jason: I am so sorry Tommy.

Jason passes out.

Chapter 5

Scene 1: The Oliver House around dawn

Phone rings Ryan Oliver answers

Ryan Oliver: Hello...You know where Tommy and Jason are?...Oh my God no!...Yes my family will be there shortly...Thanks for calling me and telling me...I wish it was not that way either...Bye!

Ryan Oliver: Charlotte!

Charlotte Oliver: Ryan whatís the matter?

Ryan: They found Tommy and Jason. Tommy is dead.

Charlotte faints. Ryan catches her and eases her on the couch, then picks up the phone and calls Detective Steve Park.

Scene 2
Adam Parks house, the next morning.

Steve Park (on the phone): Iíll tell Adam as soon as he wakes up...Thanks for calling me, hang in there.

Adam was in the hallway and heard the last part of what his father said.

Adam: Dad who was on the phone? What are you gonna tell me as soon as "I wake up"?

Steve: Adam as you know today is my day off. Adam you told me last night that Tommy and Jason never showed up for the party. Well I just got off the phone with Ryan Oliver as you know Captain Oliver, my boss. He called me to tell me that they found Tommy and Jason in the park.

Adam: Oh my god are they all right?

Steve Park: Adam you better sit down. When the guards who were walking through the park spotted two figures in the park not moving they ran over to check on them. Tommy...Tommyís dead. Jason has two slashed wrists they are not certain what happened. They rushed Jason straight to the hospital. Mr. Oliver is contacting all your friends right now.

Steve Park hugs his son, and lets Adam cry as much as he wants on his shoulder.

Scene 3
Angel Grove Hospital a few hours later.

Trini, Zack, Kimberly ,Kat, Tanya, Aisha, Rocky, Adam, Billy Justin, Charlotte and Ryan Oliver their 7 year old son Cory, Elizabeth and Jacob Scott are all waiting in the waiting room for news on Jason. Everyone is trying to comfort the Olivers. Trying to reassure the Scottís that their son will be all right.

Doctor Josh Tyler walks over to them: Jasonís wrists have been stitched up. Although his attempted suicide did not work, he did cut a nerve ending in his right hand. There is no telling if he will have any use of his right hand.

Kimberly: Doctor Tyler can we see Jason.

Dr. Tyler: Of course. He is on painkillers donít be too surprised if he seems out of it.

Kimberly, and the Scottís walk into Jasonís room. Elizabeth Scott gives her son a big hug as best she can.

Jason looks at Kimberly: I couldnít stop her. She was killing Tommy! I couldnít help Tommy! Why didnít I die too!

Jason passes out. Kim runs out of the room in tears.

Author's Note: So what did you guys think of that story? Pretty sad right? There will be a sequel to this coming out sometime next month. Not sure on the name, and I plan on writing a story explaining exactly who Dierdra is. Email me! I want to know what you all thought of the story. It was my first fan fic.
