Author's note: For any of you that like the Defenders sub-series don't worry it's not over. I have Defenders 4: Revenge sitting on my computer waiting to be finished. I just needed a break from writing it. I have a lot of ideas for where I want to take that sub-series so don't worry it's long from over. Second note is that this is not part of a series it just is another story with Tea in it.
Suggested reading: You have to read Tea. This isn't a series but you would be lost if you tried reading this without the first.
Time frame: There are two time frames in this story. The first part is in the future and most of the rest of the story is set during the Zeo series with Jason as the Gold Ranger. The story takes place when Gasket is still on the Moon.
Old Friends Return
In the year 2023, Tea is walking along the beach with her border collie Sammy. She is lost in thought. It's only been two weeks since Brandon Scott had came to visit her. Well, he thought he was meeting her, but it was hard for her to be the person he's looking for while being fifteen. She missed all the people she met in Angel Grove. She especially missed Jason.
Just then Sammy started barking at something that Tea couldn't see. She squatted down in front of the dog and said in a calm voice, "What is it girl? There's no one around." Sammy stopped barking and started whimpering. This made Tea even more confused. She looked around and couldn't understand what was the matter. She knew that dogs acted strangely before something happened but she just couldn't understand what was wrong with her dog.
Before she could do anything else she got the sensation of being pulled into an energy force. After that sensation was over, she felt herself falling. She felt like Alice from the children's story Alice in Wonderland. When she landed she noticed she was no longer on the beach. Sammy was sitting next to her looking around with fright. Tea took a better look at her surroundings and recognized where she was immediately. She was in Angel Grove. How in the world had she gotten there Tea wondered. She was also in front of the Youth Center.
"Come on Sammy let's go in. I'll get you some water." She told the dog.
When Tea entered the Youth Center she saw Ernie working behind the counter, and saw a young blond girl helping him set up.
Ernie looked over at the doorway when he heard someone enter. He recognized the girl in white shorts and a green T-shirt immediately. "Katie!" Ernie said. Though it had been almost three years since he had last seen her. She hadn't changed one bit he realized. He walked over to her and smiled. "Welcome back! And what's the dogs name?"
"Thanks Ernie. This is my dog Sammy. If there's a problem with her being in here I'll take her outside right now."
"I don't have a problem with it. Come here. I want to introduce you to Emily. Emily this is Katie Zaron she used to live here till she moved back to Maui. Katie this is Emily Johnson she just moved here."
"It's a pleasure to meet you Emily." And indeed it was. Tea always wanted to meet the girl Jason fell in love with and married. "Am I early? There isn't many people here."
"Oh others should be arriving soon. You're just a bit earlier then others arrive." Ernie informed her.
A few minutes later four teenagers came into the Juice Bar. Tea didn't recognize any of them. Ernie saw that Tea was looking over at them curiously. "They all have moved to Angel Grove since you moved away. Come here and I'll introduce you."
Ernie led her over to them. "Hey guys I want to introduce you to someone. This is Katie Zaron. Katie this is Adam Park, Tanya Sloan, Rocky DeSantos, and Katherine Hilliard."
"Hi!" Tea said shyly.
"So when did you move to Angel Grove?" Katherine asked her.
"I used to live here a few years ago but that was only for like a month. We moved back to Maui, and then we decided to come back." Tea said.
While Tea was talking to them, she did not see who had walked into the building. The young man turned around and walked out and grabbed his friend who was a few steps behind him.
"Jason you will never guess who's in the Youth Center!" Tommy Oliver said.
"I could never guess Tommy. Just tell me. Who?" Jason asked.
"Jase I think it would be better if you saw who it was yourself." Tommy said trying not to smile.
"OK Tommy." Jason walked into the Youth Center. Lucky for him Tommy was right behind him, because when he saw who was there, he fainted.
Emily saw this and ran over. "Tommy is Jason OK?" She asked worriedly.
"He'll be fine he was just surprised is all." Tommy informed her
The other Rangers got up and ran over to them. Tea was right behind them. But she lingered back away from the group.
"What happened Tommy?" Adam asked.
"I don't know." Tommy lied. He had never told the others about Tea. He wasn't about to start now. Not until Jason woke up.
"Tea." Jason mumbled as he opened his eyes. He whispered, "Tell me that was Tea and that I wasn't imagining things."
"It's me Jase. Katie." Tea said coming closer.
"How? I thought..." Jason stopped realizing what he was about to say. "I thought you moved back to Maui."
"Well we moved back." Tea answered him. "I'm sorry I didn't mean to shock you like that. I just wanted to surprise you."
"Well you certainly did." Jason stood up and gave Tea a hug. Tea gave Tommy a quick hug and they all went over to a table to talk.
"I wonder how Jason knows her?" Kat asked.
"They seem to be pretty close." Emily said quietly watching them chat. "Excuse me I have to get back to work." Emily hurried over to where Ernie was.
"I was just thinking. Maybe she's the girl Tommy and Jason were always talking to each other about." Rocky said.
"It could be. They never told us who it was." Tanya answered.
Over at a table Jason, Tommy, and Tea were laughing and talking. "Seriously you guys I have a problem."
"What is it?" Tommy asked.
"Well I have no idea how I got here. I was walking Sammy on the beach and the next thing I know I'm here. In my time it's only been a little over two weeks since I was here instead of almost three years. My parents must be freaking out."
"We better go ask Zordon about this." Jason said and got up. The three of them walked to a private part of the Youth Center and teleported out. When they got to the Power Chamber, Tea looked around curiously.
"Wow this place is much more different then I remember." Tea said.
"TEA!" Zordon said surprised. "WHAT ARE YOU DOING BACK HERE? IS THERE ANOTHER PROBLEM?"
"Zordon I don't even know how I got here. The last time I came here my dad sent me. This time I was walking my dog on the beach and the next thing I knew I was here."
"THAT IS VERY STRANGE. MAYBE THERE WAS A TEAR IN THE SPACE-TIME CONTINUM." Jason and Tommy exchanged looks after hearing that. Zordon, who saw this, continued. "WE WILL HAVE TO TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS. I WILL CONTACT BILLY ON AQUITAR AND ASK HIM TO COME BACK TO HELP."
"Aquitar? Billy's on Aquitar?" Tea asked.
"We have a lot to fill you in on Tea." Jason said.
"I guess you do." Tea said.
"To start with, after I lost my Green Ranger powers, I was given the White Ranger powers. Not long after I received the powers, we met three people. They were Adam, Rocky, and Aisha Campbell. They became Power Rangers after Jason, Trini and Zack went off to a Peace Conference. A year later we met Katherine, who was working for Rita at the time, and she took Kim's power coin. Kim at the time was training for a chance to go to the Pan-Globals. Kim moved to Florida to train, and Kat took her place on the team. Not long after that Rita's father, Master Vile, showed up and destroyed our power coins and turned us into children. We went after the Zeo Crystals to get new powers. Aisha traded places with Tanya. Aisha staying in Africa and Tanya coming to Angel Grove. Billy left the team, and a few months ago Jason came back to the team. He took the Gold Ranger powers from Trey who needed to be unified again. I think that's it. Any questions?" Tommy asked after finishing.
"You're saying the people I just met are all Power Rangers?" Tea asked.
"Yep." Jason answered with a huge smile. "I have really missed you Tea." Before he was able to say or do anything else there was a bright flash.
"Zordon I came as soon as I heard you had a problem. What's the problem?" Billy asked. He looked behind him and saw Tea standing there. "Tea! It's good to see you again! How have you been?"
"Pretty good. This whole day has been confusing. I don't even know how I got back here." Tea said with a sigh.
"BILLY I BELIEVE IT MAY HAVE TO DO WITH A TEAR IN THE SPACE-TIME CONTINUM." Zordon informed Billy.
"That sounds like a possibility. This wasn't an expected visit then." Billy said.
"In my time only two and a half weeks has gone by." Tea suddenly realized something. "Oh no! I left my dog at the Youth Center!"
"Well Tommy I think we have finally met someone more forgetful then you!" Jason joked.
"Not even funny Jase." Tommy said. Tea put her hand on Jason's shoulder as Tommy, Jason, and Tea teleported out in a mix of white, red, and black flashes of light.
When they arrived at the Youth Center, Tea ran in and saw that her dog was sitting down drinking from a bowl of water that had been placed on the ground. "Thanks Ernie for watching her. I had to go somewhere for a minute."
"It's Okay Katie. Sammy is such a good dog."
"Yes she is." Tea leaned down and started scratching Sammy's head.
Jason approached her and said, "Katie we're all going to the park you want to join us?"
"Sure! Thanks again Ernie. Come on Sammy." She lightly tugged on the leash and Sammy came rather easily.
"You guys have already met Katie right?" Jason asked. They all nodded. They all started walking to the park.
When they got to the park they all sat down. "I think you all need to know something about me." Tea started. "First my name is really Tea Zeddky. But please call me Katie when there's other people around. I'm not from this time period. I am from the year 2023. Almost three years ago your time, and two weeks ago my time, I was sent here to stop a man from changing the past. I became good friends with Tommy, Billy, Kimberly, Zack, Trini, and Jason. I only ended up staying less then a month and went back to my time. Two weeks after I returned I was walking my dog Sammy on the beach and the next thing I knew I was standing outside of the Youth Center." She paused and looked at the shocked expressions on Kat, Adam, Tanya, and Rocky's faces. "Billy and Zordon are trying to find out what happened so until them I'm here. My parents are probably freaking out at this moment. Looking all over the beach for me and my dog."
"So you know Zordon?" Kat asked.
"Yes. I really shocked the others when I asked them to take me to see him. I thought Jason was going to faint when I even suggested that."
"Oh no what was stranger was when Scarlett asked me 'Does Zordon think Lord Zedd took them?' I thought your family was off the deep end, no offense Tea. Your uncle certainly was." Jason said with a smile
"No problem. He doesn't have any trouble calling Dad Kyle though. My dad once told me about how he never got his name right and it drove him crazy."
"Well it sounds like you guys had great memories. I just thought of something. Tea's the girl in that dance picture isn't she?" Adam asked.
"Yes that's her." Jason answered.
"Tea where are you going to stay?" Tanya asked.
"I don't know yet. It wasn't an expected visit."
"You can probably stay at my house." Tommy told her. "My parents still remember you. I'm sure they wouldn't mind."
"Are you sure? I wouldn't want to impose on your family."
"Nope. I am positive that it will be all right." Tommy said.
Tea looked over at Jason to make sure it didn't bother him. Seeing that he was smiling she took that as a good sign. "Only if your parents don't mind. What are we going to say?" She asked.
"We'll think of something." Tommy said.
It was later that night at the Oliver home Charlotte Oliver was showing Tea into the guest room. "I hope you like the room Katie."
"I do thanks so much Mrs. Oliver." Tea said.
"It's no problem at all. Please call me Charlotte." Charlotte said with a warm smile.
Tommy walked into the room with a box. "Here's your clothes Katie."
"Thanks Tommy." Tea said.
"We'll I'll leave you to your unpacking. The bathroom's just down the hall. If you need anything just ask." Charlotte informed her. Both she and Tommy left the room to let Tea settle in.
"I feel kind of silly going to school here. It's not like I'm going to be here long." It was the next day. Tea told Jason as they walked slowly into the school.
"Well it would be hard to try to explain to the Oliver's why your not attending wouldn't it?"
"I see your point. I need to remember to thank Tanya and Kat for lending me some of their clothes. Though pink and yellow aren't exactly my colors I made due." Tea was wearing a yellow T-shirt and jeans and the sneakers she had been wearing the day before. "I guess I couldn't go around wearing the same outfit every day."
"You'd look pretty in the same clothes." Jason said softly.
Bulk and Scull were running down the hall throwing a football back and forth. They almost ran into Tea, but Jason moved in the way.
"Hey watch wear your going geek!" Bulk sneered.
"Excuse me Bulk but I think you ran into Jason." Tea said.
"Katie? Wow didn't think you'd be here again." Bulk said. He smiled at her and ran off to catch up with Skull.
"Jason was I seeing things or was Bulk being nice to me?" Tea asked.
"I believe so. You must have shocked him to being polite." Jason offered.
"I have to go to the attendance office I'll see you later okay?"
"Fine good luck!" He called to her as she hurried down the corridor.
On the moon, Prince Gasket was watching this with amusement. "Klank do you know who that mysterious girl was?" He asked the machine builder.
"No sire I don't. But it seems to me that she and the Gold Ranger are pretty close." Klank informed him.
"I can see that Klank. I have to figure out how to make an advantage out of this. I've got it! I'll kidnap her and ransom her for the Gold Rangers powers!"
"Wonderful plan your highness."
Tommy, Jason and Tea were walking through the park after school that day.
"So how did you like being back in school Tea?" Jason asked.
"It hasn't changed much since I've been gone. Except new teachers and different students." Tea said.
"It might be two weeks your time but it's been almost three years here." Tommy said.
Just then they were interrupted by an appearance of cogs.
"Ready?" Tommy asked. Jason and Tea both nodded. The cogs had separated Tommy and Jason from Tea. Jason was being held back while Tommy was fighting cogs off him. Tommy saw a cog pointing a small device at Tea. Without thinking Tommy pushed a cog out of the way and jumped in front of Tea. The device hit Tommy square, and both he and the cog disappeared. The rest of the cogs left soon after.
"Tommy!" Tea yelled. Looking around.
Jason ran up to her. "Where's Tommy?" He asked her.
"I don't know! Tommy jumped in front of me and took a shot from a cog and he disappeared. Jase they were after me! They got Tommy but they were after me!" Tea cried. Jason pulled her close and teleported them both back up to the Power Chamber.
On the Moon, Prince Gasket was standing in the throne room looking at his captive who was being held by several cogs. He turned to the cogs. "I said get the girl! And what did you get me? Him! But that's nothing to worry about though. I'll go to the original plan." Gasket snapped his fingers and there was a flash of light.
Tommy, who was struggling against the cogs stopped in horror when he saw who had appeared. It was like looking into a mirror. His clone, which had presumably gone to the past, was standing in front of him.
"Hmm. Perfect likeness if you ask me. That should keep the other rangers busy." He turned to the cogs. "Take the prisoner down to the dungeon. I will deal with him soon." The cogs pulled a struggling Tommy down the hall. Gasket turned to the clone. "As for you. I will be back with the Red Rangers Zeonizers you know what to do."
"Yes my lord." The clone said.
'Even if they break the spell it won't help them!' Gasket thought happily.
Gasket entered the dungeon. "Give me your Zeonizers now Red Ranger or I will have to use means that will not be pleasant for you!"
"I wouldn't give you my Zeonizers Gasket for anything!" Tommy spat.
"Fine have it your way Red Ranger." Gasket took an object off a shelf. "I was prepared for this Tommy. Just because you jumped in the girl's way doesn't mean I wasn't ready." He pointed the object at Tommy's wrists. "This will be painful I assure you." A light lit Tommy's wrists. Tommy bit his lip to keep from crying out. He watched as his Zeonizers appeared on his wrists. Tommy was going to morph but before he could, his Zeonizers came off his wrists and landed in Gasket's hands. Laughing Gasket disappeared from the room. Tommy sat there rubbing his aching wrists while wondering what Gasket was up to.
"Here are the Zeonizers. I will teleport you to Earth to take on the Rangers. Don't stay there long. Just give them a tease." Gasket handed him the Zeonizers.
"Zeo Ranger 5, Red." The clone of Tommy said. Gasket watched as the clone morphed into the costume.
"Very good!" Gasket said and sent the clone down.
Jason and Tea were in the Power Chamber explaining what had just happened with the cogs to Zordon, Alpha, and the rest of the Rangers when the alarms went off.
"RANGERS, COGS ARE ATTACKING THE BUSINESS DISTRICT DOWNTOWN. YOU BETTER TELEPORT DOWN AND STOP THEM." Zordon advised them. Zordon turned to Tea. "TEA IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU STAYED UP HERE. GASKET MAY MAKE ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE YOU."
"All right Zordon. Good luck you guys." Tea said.
"It's Morphin time!" Jason yelled.
"Zeo Ranger 1, Pink." Kat called.
"Zeo Ranger 2, Yellow." Tanya called.
"Zeo Ranger 3, Blue." Rocky called.
"Zeo Ranger 4, Green." Adam called.
"Gold Ranger Power." Jason called.
When the rangers appeared they were met with a flash of light. Standing there was Zeo Ranger 5.
"Tommy?" Jason questioned not understanding this at all.
Tommy just stood there looking at them. He didn't make any noise.
"We better take extreme caution something doesn't seem right." Jason told the others quietly.
Tommy disappeared right before their eyes. "What was that all about?" Kat asked.
"Maybe it was another hologram." Rocky suggested.
"Could be. Let's get rid of these cogs!" Adam said. The rangers finished them off quickly.
"What's going on here?" Jason asked to no one in particular.
"Maybe we should get back to the Power Chamber." Tanya suggested.
They teleported back up to the Power Chamber and looked up at Zordon.
"I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT WAS ABOUT RANGERS. IT WASN'T A HOLOGRAM IS ALL WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TELL."
"It wasn't a hologram?! Then that means Tommy's-" Kat started.
"Tommy couldn't have been turned evil!" Tea interrupted.
"Tea it's happened before. The last time it did wasn't that long ago. It happened when Gasket had captured him and used his brain drain devise. He told him the Power Rangers were the evil one's. We were able to stop Gasket though." Jason told her.
Tea just stood there shocked, wondering what would have happened if Tommy hadn't jumped in her way.
Tommy woke up to see his clone looking at him. Tommy had been given a shot by a cog not that long ago. Tommy struggled to stand up and found he was chained to one of the walls. "What do you want?" Tommy asked. His clone didn't answer. "I thought you were sent back to the eighteenth century. And now you are going around with my Zeonizers pretending to be me. Well my friends will figure out your a clone."
The clone finally spoke. "You really think so Tommy? I fooled them before. Why should this time be any different."
"Because Adam and Rocky are still on the team. They would figure it out." Tommy told him. Not sure if he was trying to convince the clone more then himself.
"You even doubt what you're saying. Don't be surprised Tommy. I am your clone I know what you think before you think it." The clone said with a laugh. "As much fun as this little chit chat has been I have to go pretend to be you again. Have fun." Laughing he teleported out of the dungeon.
The rangers plus Tea were sitting in the Youth Center talking the next day after school.
"Jase I'm glad you were there when I had to explain to the Oliver's where their son was. I thought they didn't believe you when you said he was at your house. But at least they didn't ask me any questions about it." Tea smiled.
"Well that's one thing we won't have to worry about." Tanya said.
Jason gasped. The others turned around to see what he was looking at. A young man in a red T-shirt and jeans shorts walked into the Youth Center. There was no mistake it was Tommy. "This keeps getting stranger and stranger." Jason said.
'Tommy' glared towards their table and walked up to the Juice Bar to order a drink.
"Hey Tommy. You want your usual?" Emily asked him.
"Yes." 'Tommy' said.
Jason sat there and watched his best friend debating whether or not to walk up to him. Tommy continued to sit there talking to Emily but Jason couldn't hear what she was saying. But what he saw was a good enough answer for him. Emily looked at him with disgust and hurried away.
"I wonder what that was about." Kat said.
"Who knows. Tommy probably was being your average 'under a spell' type of personality guy." Rocky said.
"I know I haven't been around to see Tommy under a spell, or anyone else for that matter, but is this normal? For someone who's under a spell to hang out in an open place like this?" Tea asked.
"No it's not normal but with Gasket you can never tell what normal is." Adam answered her.
'Tommy' got up and hurried out of the Juice Bar and headed towards the park.
"We should go after him." Jason said. "Tea it might be a good idea to stay here."
"Okay. Be careful you guys." Tea watched them hurry off and turned around to drink her soda. She saw Emily approaching her. "Hi Emily."
"The other leave?" Emily asked.
"Yeah they had something to take care of." Tea informed her.
"Okay. I needed to ask Jason something but I guess that can wait till later." Emily said and hurried back to work.
'I wonder what that was about.' Tea thought. She could sense Emily really had a thing for Jason and it bugged her. Even though she knew Jason and Emily would eventually get married, it still paned her to see Emily. There was a part of her that really liked Jason.
Tommy was pulled into the throne room by cogs. He was struggling against them when he saw Klank approaching him with an object.
"No need to struggle ranger. It will do you no good." Gasket said from behind him. "Cogs bring him over here." The cogs did as they were told. "I have decided it's a waste to have you in the dungeon taking up space so I have something for you. Do you want to know what it is?" Gasket asked. Tommy just shook his head. "Fine then you'll be surprised."
Tommy was placed on a table and was strapped down. "I'll tell you what it is anyway. I already have your Zeonizers, so I might as well get your Zeo Crystal also. This is another painful process. This one being much more painful then the first." Gasket turned on a machine and Tommy felt the energy coursing through him. "It will be a slow process. It won't kill you, I don't think. But it will be excruciating." Gasket left.
As the machine was taking the Zeo Crystal Tommy passed out from the pain.
The rangers ran into Tommy in the park.
"Tommy you have to snap out of it!" Kat said.
"Snap out of what Katherine? You think your words will free me?" Tommy asked.
"Come on bro. You have to realize you don't work for Gasket!" Jason said.
'Tommy's' suit flickered for one brief second. But he didn't pay attention to it as he launched himself at Jason. 'Tommy' nailed Jason in the back of the head and knocked him out. Before the rest of the rangers could help Jason, cogs and one of Gasket's monsters stopped them. Tommy morphed and shot Jason with his laser pistol. However Zordon was teleporting Jason up and it only caught Jason with a glancing blow.
"Coward. Now for the rest of you..." 'Tommy's suit flickered again and he demorphed. "What is going on here?" 'Tommy' ran over and started attacking the other rangers.
Back up in the Power Chamber, Alpha was scanning the unconscious Jason. "Ay yi yi yi yi Zordon! That pistol did some damage!"
Just then Tea teleported up to the Power Chamber and turned to Zordon. "Zordon what's wrong with Jason?!"
"TEA HE WAS SHOT WITH A LASER PISTOL."
Tea turned to the viewing globe. "Zordon Tommy just demorphed what happened?"
Zordon observed what was going on. "ALPHA PREPARE A FORCE FIELD TO HOLD TOMMY. I'M GOING TO TELEPORT THEM ALL UP HERE. TEA, TAKE JASON INTO THE BACK CHAMBER OVER THERE. HE WILL BE QUITE SAFE THERE.
"All right Zordon." Tea carefully pushed the monitoring table Jason was laying on.
Just then the other rangers landed with a thud. 'Tommy' was held in a force field. Alpha carefully walked behind him with a gadget and was scanning him. "Zordon this isn't Tommy." Alpha informed him.
"What!" All of the rangers said at once.
"WELL THAT EXPLAINS HOW TEA GOT HERE. GASKET MUST HAVE TAKEN TOMMY'S CLONE OUT OF THE PAST. WHEN DOING SO, HE MUST HAVE CAUSED A DISRUPTION IN THE SPACE-TIME CONTINUM."
"Zordon if that's not Tommy, then where's Tommy?" Tanya asked.
"MOST LIKELY THE REAL TOMMY IS STILL ON THE MOON." Zordon informed her.
"And you won't get him back either!" The clone informed them in a smug voice.
Alpha who had been working on an antidote walked behind him and injected 'Tommy' with it.
'Tommy' stood there shaking his head. "Zordon how did I get here?" He asked.
"TOMMY YOU WERE TAKEN FROM THE PAST BY GASKET." Zordon informed the clone.
'Tommy' started remembering what had been happening the last few days. "Tommy's in grave danger! We have to rescue him! Gasket was planning to take the Zeo Crystal from him."
"That must explain why the suit flickered." Kat said.
"RANGERS I'M NOT GOING TO SEND ALL OF YOU. THOMAS WILL OF COURSE BE GOING. THREE OTHERS CAN GO ALSO."
"I will go Zordon." Adam and Rocky volunteered.
Kat and Tanya exchanged looks. "You go Kat." Tanya said.
"TRANSPORTING YOU NOW." 'Tommy', Rocky, Adam and Kat all teleported up to the moon.
When they arrived there they landed in the throne room. "Tommy where would Prince Gasket be conducting this at?" Rocky asked him.
'Tommy' was looking around his eyes stopped at a corner of the room. "There." He pointed.
They ran over to Tommy. "How do we disconnect him from the machine?" Rocky asked.
Adam was fidgeting with some of the wires and exclaimed happily "I've got him free!"
Just then they heard a voice behind them. "Not so fast rangers! You aren't going anywhere till I get the Zeo Crystal!" Gasket fired at the table Tommy was laying on. 'Tommy' laid himself on top of the real Tommy and took the full blast. Adam and Rocky pulled the clone off and Kat grabbed a hold of Tommy and the five of them teleported out.
"Curses! I was so close at having a Zeo Crystal! I hate those Power Rangers!"
In the Power Chamber, Kat, Adam, Rocky, and Tanya were waiting on a verdict from Zordon.
"RANGERS I'M SORRY BUT THOMAS IS DEAD. TOMMY'S ALL-RIGHT THOUGH. HE'LL BE SORE FOR AWHILE THOUGH."
Tommy woke up. "How did I get here?" Tommy whispered.
"Relax Tommy you'll be fine." Kat soothed.
Tommy looked over at his clone who was lying still on the ground. "What happened to him?"
"Tommy when we were rescuing you from the moon, Gasket fired a blast at you. You're clone took the full blast and is dead." Adam said softly.
"He saved my life?" Tommy asked.
"Where's Jason?" Tommy asked.
"He's-" Adam started to say.
"I'm right here." Jason said walking in slowly leaning against Tea.
"I think you guys have a lot to tell me." Tommy said.
"I guess we do." Kat said with a smile.
"TEA WE HAVE THE TELEPORTATIONAL UNIT READY. YOU READY TO GO HOME?" Zordon asked.
"How long do I have?" Tea asked.
"TEN MINUTES." Zordon said
Tea nodded. The others walked over to her and hugged her. Alpha was fidgeting with a console. There was a flash of light and Sammy appeared. "Thanks Alpha."
Kat, Tanya, Rocky and Adam walked over to Tommy to give Tea and Jason some time alone to say their good byes.
"It seems like all we do is say goodbye." Tea said crying.
Jason hugged her. "I know. I'm going to really miss you Tea." They kissed and pulled apart.
"I guess this is it. It was nice meeting you Kat, Tanya, Rocky and Adam. Tommy you try to stay out of trouble. And Jason you take care. I will miss you too!" Tea and Sammy disappeared from the Power Chamber.
Tea landed on the beach and saw a young man walking towards her. She saw that it was Brandon. "Sorry I haven't been by to see you again but I kind of got addicted to surfing." Brandon said with a smile.
"That's all right Brandon. You want to go to a movie tomorrow?" Tea asked.
"Hey you must have read my mind! That's what I was just about to ask you! So the answer to your question is yes."
The two of them and Sammy walked down the beach with the sun setting just above their heads.
Goodness this fanfic was longer then Tea! I didn't think I would be able to write another fanfic that would be longer then Tea but I did. Sorry about the sappy ending. I thought it would be cool to have Tea and Brandon get together in the end. Email me and let me know what you thought of this fanfic at Willow@grrtech.com.
