Looking Back
By Dana

Jimanya stood in front of the Lightning Ranger Council preparing to give a speech. They had asked her to give a speech on how being a Lightning Ranger had changed her life.

"Chairman Raydon and members of the Lightning Ranger Council I want to thank you for giving me an opportunity to give this speech. It was tough for me to decide what to write. But I thought I'd just start with the beginning."

*A woman placed her four-year-old daughter in front of a pile of gifts and stood next to her to assist in unwrapping the gifts. She handed her a package wrapped in blue. The woman who had given the gift stepped forward and smiled in anticipation of the reaction.

The little girl, whose name was Jimanya, spoke up. "Mommy I don't like red."

Felicia was surprised. "Sweetheart the wrapping is blue not red."

"No Mommy. I don't like the color of the shirt in here."

The woman who had given the present stepped forward. "The shirt is red!" She said in shock.

Prince Tork, who stood a few feet away, turned to the person next to him and said, "Get my father!"

"Right away your majesty." The man said, bowed, and then ran out of the room in hopes of finding King Lexion.

Felicia was worried. Her husband came over and kneeled next to his daughter. "Jimanya sweetheart. Can you see what's in the package over there?" Tork asked pointing to a big one in green wrapping.

Jimanya nodded. "A bear."

There was a gasp in the crowd. "She's right Prince Tork." Mayen Windle said stepping forward. "I bought her the present. My daughter Janna has one like it and she loves it a lot." She quickly curtsied when she saw the King and Queen enter the room.

"I'm sorry I'm late." King Lexion said as he and his wife, Queen Tera, came closer. "Happy Birthday Jimanya." He greeted his granddaughter. "What's going on?" He asked looking at his son.

"Jimanya seems to have x-ray vision. Here I'll show you." Prince Tork said grabbing a package off the pile. "Jimanya what's in here?" He asked.

Jimanya looked at it for a second before smiling. "A pink dolly." She said and started to reach for the box and started to unwrap it. Sure enough, it was a pink doll.

King Lexion gasped. "I didn't know she was one of them." He murmured.

"One of who father?" Prince Tork asked.

"The Lightning Rangers. Except she's special. She has the ability without the powers." King Lexion informed them.

"What does that mean? Does it mean something will happen to her?" Princess Felicia asked.

"No but she will have to be given the powers later. There is no way the council will let her ability go to waste."

"Not my little girl!" Felicia said with determination.

"I'm afraid so Felicia." Queen Tera said

Princess Jimanya, who was now thirteen and her five-year-old brother Prince Dexter played in their playroom under the watchful eye of their nanny Laina.

The door opened and a woman with silver blond hair entered along with Prince Tork and Princess Felicia.

"Jimanya." Tork started to say. "This is Camille. Camille this is my daughter Jimanya."

Jimanya walked over to them. "Hi." She said shyly.

"Jimanya Camille is here to tell you something very important. We'll leave you be. Come on Dex and Laina." She said and all four left the room.

"Jimanya I'm sure you've noticed you're different then other kids your age." Camille started. Jimanya nodded. "You know that things are going to happen before they do right?"

"How did you know? I hated telling my parents any of those things. I remember when I was four my parents were scared because I could see through things." Jimanya said with a frown.

"There's a reason for that. You have the lightning signature. You have an unusual lightning signature. You can draw on your abilities without having the Lightning powers. What I've asked your parents is for their permission for me to train you." Camille said. "Your abilities are needed."

"Would the training be done here?" Jimanya asked.

"Oh no. It would be done on Terqan which is far away from here." Camille informed her.

"What do my parents think of that?" Jimanya asked.

"They said it was your decision." Camille informed her.

"I want to go." Jimanya said with determination. *

"It always seemed like I wasn't supposed to be on Edenoi. It was as if I belonged somewhere else. Ever since that day, I've only been back a handful of times. It doesn't bother me that that much." Jimanya said. "I heard this song on Cassie's, the Pink Astro Ranger, CD player and I thought it summed everything up. She gave it to me."

All of my friends
are happy to stay
Here in this yard
day after day
But something inside me
has called me away
I don't understand
but I know I can't stay

I'm gonna fly
No one knows where
I'm gonna fly
I'm lighter than air
Cause I have felt for the first time
I can be myself
No more faces to hide behind
Just a smile and the dream is mine
Even if I am the only one
Who wants to fly

I'm gonna fly
No one knows where
I'm gonna fly
I'll soar through the air
Cause all my life, seems I've waited
for the time to start
Being this person inside of me
Unafraid of being me
No more faces to hide behind
Just a smile and the dream is mine
Even if I am the only one
Who wants to fly

If I had my life to live over again
I'd run barefoot, relax, love him more
And I'd talk to more children
And I'd learn how they laughed
and I'd teach them how I've learned to fly

I'm gonna fly
No one knows where
I'm gonna fly
I'm lighter than air

I'm gonna fly
No one knows where
I'm gonna fly
I'll soar through the hair
Cause all my life, seems I've waited
For the time to start
Being this person inside of me
Unafraid of being me
Even if I am the only one
Who wants to fly

I'm gonna fly...
"There's one more thing that sums up what it's like to be a Lightning Ranger and that's this picture." Jimanya said holding up a picture of a group of incredible people.

*Jimanya stood in front of the group and took the camera out. "Don't worry guys it has a timer." She looked at everyone grouped. They were all ready for a dance and Cordon was still there. Alexis and Andros were sitting in chairs in the front with their dates, Roland and Ashley, squatting next to them. Zhane placed his arm around Dallas and Tommy and Sora were laughing. TJ and Cassie had their arms around each other and Jason stood in the back with Cordon. Jimanya ran over to the group and into the back row laughing.

"Cheese!" They all said in unison. Then the camera two more pictures.

They broke apart and Jimanya took out the pictures. "One for Cordon, one for me, and one for the rest of you!" Jimanya said handing them out. "Go on. You're all going to be late!" She said watching them teleport out.

*Jimanya put the picture down. "That group of people taught me something. When you believe in something, it may just happen. They went through a lot and I was taken along for the ride. If I had a choice, I would do this all over again without any question. I thank you." She said moving away from the podium.

Everyone stood up and applauded. "Great speech Jimanya." Chairman Raydon said. "We all enjoyed it. We have also enjoyed you being here. We'll miss you when you leave. Meeting's adjourned."

Jimanya walked out the door and saw Camille and Jorgan standing there. "Great job sweetheart." Jorgan said hugging her.

"I agree." Camille said. "Why don't we go get something to eat.

That is what they did.


After a year Jimanya went back to Edenoi and reigned over her world as the Queen. Her daughter, who took the throne, was named Alexis.
