(2 Days After Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie)
"See ya Kim."
"Bye Ally." Kimberly gave her roommate from Florida a hug. She then picked up the last box filed with her things and packed it into her navy-blue convertible.
"Don't forget to write and good luck with everything." Ally smiled as Kim started the car.
"I won't and thanks." Kim replied as she drove off. Well here goes nothing. Kim sighed.
"It's great you decided to stay for a while." Tommy said as he sipped some of his strawberry smoothie.
"Well after what happened, I feel a lot safer here with you guys." Jason replied.
"Oh come on bro, you could kick Divatox's butt with out any help." Tommy laughed.
"Well, I don't want to boast, but......" Jason smiled as the two started to laugh. "Hey did you ever talk to Kimberly?"
Tommy looked down and sighed. He just had to ask. "No, she left before I got a chance to. It's like she couldn't stand me. After the fight, she seemed so distant."
"I doubt that bro. You should call her or something."
"I don't think she would talk to me."
"Well do you still love her?"
"Yeah, I do."
"I never really understood why she sent that letter, it just doesn't make much sense."
"I know." Tommy replied as Adam, Rocky, Tanya, Kat, and Justin entered the Youth Center and sat down with them.
"Hey guys." Adam said.
"Hi." Tommy and Jason greeted them.
Kimberly sighed because she had been driving for hours. She looked at the highway signs to see where she was. "I'm in Texas, if I take exit 5b, then take 295 east. Oh man. It's so far away. If only I could afford a plane ticket. I had too many things to move back to Angelgrove anyway. I miss him so much." Kimberly moaned as she kept going down the long roads, back to her home.
She looked at herself in the mirror. She couldn't even enjoy her looks, she was furious. "They ruined it all. Little kids defeat me!"
"We have arrived."
"Perfect." Divatox smiled wickedly. They will pay for what they cost me.
"Well guys it is getting late. Jase and I still have a lot of setting up to do." Tommy said as he and Jase picked up their bags. "We'll see ya later."
"Okay, see ya Tommy. Oh, maybe we could go see a movie tomorrow?" Kat replied taking Tommy's hand in hers.
"Yeah, maybe." Tommy backed off and looked at Jason, who was about to laugh.
"Bye guys." Jason quickly said and grabbed Tommy from Kat.
"Bye!" The rangers replied in unison.
"You need to tell her." Jason said as he jumped into Tommy's jeep.
"I know, I just don't know how."
"You also should get in touch with Kim."
"I know, I know." Tommy moaned as he drove off.
"Don't worry about it now. Let's here some tunes." Jason smiled as he turned on the radio. "How about Aerosmith?"
"Okay, sounds good."
"I am so tierd." Kimberly yawned. "But there's no hotels around. Let's see..." Kim moaned looking at the road signs. "I just have to make another hour and then there are hotels." Kim yawned again and kept driving.
"So how are we going to get the Power Rangers back?" Rygog asked.
"I'll think of something, but tomorrow morning. It's to late and I need my beauty sleep." Divatox answered as she walked to her private chambers.
"Let's get some sleep." Jason suggested.
"Yeah, it is late. We also got a lot of unpacking done." Tommy yawned.
"Goodnight Jase." Tommy replied as he crashed on his bed and turned the light off.
Kimberly reached the hotel. She parked her car and grabbed a pink duffel bag and walked into the hotel, to find a short, fat man at the corner. "Ewww, gross." Kim thought as she walked up to the counter.
"Can I help ya sweet cheeks?"
"Yeah, a room for the night." Kim replied.
"Here you go." Kim said as she took the money out of her wallet.
"Room thirty-five." The man said giving her the key to her room.
"Thanks." Kim said as she picked up her bag and walked down the hall to her room. "I am so glad this is for one night." Kim thought as she opened the door. She laid her bag down. Kim walked into the bathroom and looked into the mirror. "Yuck, I am a mess." Kim moaned as she turned on the shower. Kim opened her bag and took out a little, pink travel bag. She then took out a little shampoo and conditioner. Kim then took off her clothes and hopped into the shower and washed her hair.
"I am so tired." Kim yawned as she looked at her map. "But at least I'm only 2 hours away." Kim smiled. "I can't wait to see everybody. Oh god, but what will I say, how will I act? Will he be angry with me? I mean, I completely gave him a cold shoulder when he rescued me from Divatox. Oh, what if he hooked up with Kat. That'll tear me apart. I just have to tell him the truth, no matter what." Kim thought as she drove on.
"Come on Tommy, get up." Jason called from the kitchen.
"It's too early." Tommy moaned from his bed.
"It's 9:00 in the morning."
"That's why it's too early."
"Come on, I want to get the rest of the packing done. I'm sick of the boxes."
"Then unpack them."
Jason went over to the couch and picked up a pillow. That's it!
"What the hell?" Tommy said as he felt the pillow smack him in the head. "Fine, I'm up!" Tommy called as he walked into the bathroom and turned on the shower.
"It's about time!"
Divatox arose from her bed and quickly got ready. She had many plans to make and she had to make them now! She left her quarters and stormed down to the hall and entered the control area where Rygog was standing, awaiting her command.
"Rygog, I want spies watching the rangers, day and night. I want to know more about them. Their past, their love life, what are their deepest darkest fears or secrets. I even want to know their favorite food. EVERYTHING! Now go!" Divatox commanded as Rygog bowed and left for his misson. "Perfect." Divatox grinned wickedly.
Kim drove on when she came up to a sign that read: WELCOME TO ANGELGROVE, HOME OF THE POWER RANGERS. "Yes! I'm home!" Kim said happily. "Okay, now I have to find my new apartment and I'm set, for the moment." Kim smiled as she drove through Angelgrove, looking at all the familiar sights she had missed so much. "Who knew I missed this place this much." Kim thought as she pulled up to a new apartment complex and parked her car. "Well here we are." Kim took a deep breath while picking up a box.
"Where do we get the paper and mail around here?" Tommy asked.
"You have go downstairs and there are mailboxes. Our apartment number will be on it."
"Alright, I'll be right back." Tommy replied as he walked out the door to find a girl struggling with a box while walking up the stairs. He could tell she was strong and had great balance, but struggling. "Let me help you." Tommy offered putting his hands out, so he could take the box.
"Thank you." She said giving the box to him.
"Whoa, this is heavy. How did she even get this box up this far." Tommy thought as the girl got her keys and opened the door to her apartment.
"Can you follow the sound of my voice?"
"Yeah." Tommy said as he walked into the apartment and set the box down. That voice sounds familiar.
"Thanks for the help."
"No prob..." Tommy started, but seemed to loose his voice. The girl lost her voice as well and they just stood there and stared.
Back in their apartment Jason got wondered where Tommy was and decided to check on him. Jason walked out of the door and was surprised at what he saw.
Rygog arrived in the park, disguised as a human with black hair and black clothes. He hid behind a tree where he watched Kat, Tanya, Adam and Rocky talk.
"Do you guys notice how Tommy has been acting weird lately?" Kat asked.
"No, not really." Rocky answered.
"I feel he doesn't like me anymore." Kat whined.
"Oh, don't worry girl. He's in love with you." Tanya replied.
"I feel like I'm going to be sick. Kat if you think Tommy loves you, you're as stupid as you look." Rocky thought as he took a sandwich from the picnic basket.
"What do you guys think?" Kat asked as she and Tanya stared at Adam and Rocky.
"Um, I couldn't say." Adam answered. Yeah, like I'll tell you what Tommy thinks of you.
"Well Kat, you are way better than that Kim person. You would never treat him like trash and just throw him away." Tanya replied.
"We'll be leaving now." Adam almost growled as he and Rocky left.
"What was that about?" Tanya asked as Rygog left his spot behind the tree and followed Adam and Rocky.
"I'm sorry I just got up and made you leave like that. If I had to sit and listen to Kat and Tanya for one more minute, I think I would have screamed."
"It's okay Adam. I'm glad you did. I mean with them insulting Kim and Kat with her whining and complaining about Tommy was driving me nuts!" Rocky replied.
"Yeah, Tommy really should talk to Kat. You can tell he just likes her as a friend."
"I know. I don't know about you, but Kat and Tanya aren't my favorite people right now."
"Hey let's go back to my house and call Tommy and Jase and see if they want to go swimming?"
"Sounds great. They have a nice, new, big pool at their apartment complex, right?"
"Yeah, that would be fun."
"You're on." Rocky replied as the two friends ran off to Rocky's house.
Rygog smiled and vanished with his new set of information.
"You don't make a bad human." Divatox said as Rygog arrived with his information. "So what do you have to tell me?"
"The Pink Ranger seems to be in love with the Red Ranger, but I don't know if he is. The Green and Blue rangers are annoyed with the girl rangers."
"Good, but not enough. Go spy on Tommy, NOW!!"
The three just stood there and stared. "Kim, what are you doing here?" Jason asked.
"I....I bought this apartment." Kim replied shakily.
"How are you?" Tommy said almost to soft to hear.
"I'm okay." Kimberly replied. "What about you guys? What are you guys doing here?"
"We live in the apartment next to you." Tommy answered.
"Oh." Kim replied looking nervously down at her feet.
"Oh god, I can't believe she is standing right in front of me. What do I do?"
"Why don't we go get something to eat and do something together?" Jason suggested.
"Thank you Jase." "Yeah that would be great." Tommy replied, realizing how anxious he just sounded.
"I would love to, but there is still so many things in my car that I have to bring up." Kim answered.
"Then will help you!" Tommy quickly said. "We'll bring your stuff up and then we can go."
"I don't know."
"Please." Tommy pleaded.
Kim hesitated for a moment. "You know I can't say no to that face." Kim smiled.
"Then let's go!" Jason replied as the three walked down to Kimberly's car.
Kimberly couldn't believe she was walking next to Tommy. "He actually seemed happy to see me. He's still so cute! Chill Kim. You don't even know if he's with Kat or what if he's mad at you. You did send that terrible letter, but he did smile at you." With that thought, Kim smiled.
Tommy was so nervous. "Why the hell am I so nervous? Well for starters the girl you're in love with just showed up at your apartment building and will be living next to you. Now you're walking next to her and about to spend time with her. Kim also looks so good. I wish I could just hold her in my arms. Chill Oliver. She dumped you. Remember? She did smile back at you." Tommy thought as they reached Kim's car.
"Nice car." Jason said snapping Kim and Tommy from their thoughts.
"It was a present from my mom." Kim replied as she swung her backpack on her shoulder and picked up a box.
"Very cool. Do you think we could take your car when we leave?" Tommy asked as he picked up two boxes.
"Sure." Kim smiled.
"Awesome. We'll be crusin with style." Jason replied as Tommy and Kimberly laughed.
The three brought the rest of Kim's stuff up to her apartment and set it down and about an hour later were done. "Thanks so much for helping me. It would have taken me forever." Kim said as she set the last box down.
"It was our pleasure." Tommy replied.
"Would you guys mind if I clean up some and then we'll go?" Kim asked.
"Sure, but one question." Jason answered.
"Where do you plan on sleeping tonight?"
"Kim, you don't have any furniture." Jason pointed out.
"Oh, well I was going to go shopping for some. I'll just sleep in my sleeping bag tonight."
Oh no you don't. Come stay with us." Tommy replied.
Yeah Kim, we have couches and Tommy or I could sleep on them and you could use one of our beds." Jason suggested.
I couldn't do that."
Oh yes you could and you will." Tommy responded.
Fine, I will." Kim finally agreed. "So where to?"
Well how about some shopping." Tommy answered.
Did I just hear right? Tommy Oliver suggesting we go shopping?" Kimberly giggled.
"Yes, we can go find some furniture for you and other accessories. Any way Jase and I need some stuff for our apartment too." Tommy replied.
"Alright, but on one condition." Kim smiled.
"What would that be?" Jason asked.
"Dinner and a movie on me." Kim answered.
"Okay. It's a deal." Tommy and Jase smiled.
"Okay, let me freshen up and we'll go." Kim said as she grabbed one of her bags and entered the bathroom.
"I can't believe this is happening." Tommy whispered.
"I know. Here's your second chance." Jason whispered back
"But what about that letter?"
"What about it?"
"The other guy."
"Did you see another guy? Has she mentioned one?"
"But nothing. Look at the way she looks and smiles at you. That's the same way she acted that day at the martial arts competition where you guys first saw each other."
"Do you really think so?"
"Yeah, bro I really think so."
In the bathroom Kimberly was looking through her bag for a clean shirt. "I must have taken the wrong bag, but wait. What about this outfit. Tommy did say it was one of his favorite." Kimberly smiled as she changed into it. "Perfect, now the makeup." Kim said as she took out a light shade of pink lipstick and eyeshadow. Kim looked herself over in the mirror and put on her Nike tennis shoes. Kim opened the bathroom door and walked out to only to find Tommy staring at her.
"I remember that outfit. It was the one you wore the day Ivan Ooze attacked and we went to Phadeous."
"Ivan Ooze, the purple slime dude you told me about?" Jason asked.
"Yeah. Kim you look great." Tommy replied.
"Thank you. I remembered you said it was your favorite on me." Kim said and blushed at what she had said.
"Yeah, it still is." Tommy blushed.
"Well let's go." Jason replied as Kim grabbed her keys and walked out with Tommy and Jason behind her.
"I told you." Jason whispered to Tommy and with that Tommy smiled. For the first time in a while he felt very good.
"Hey Tommy, you want to drive?" Kim asked.
"I would love to." Tommy answered.
"Here." Kim said giving Tommy the keys.
"Kim you can have the front." Jason said as he jumped into the convertible.
"Thanks Jase." Kim replied as she and Tommy got in the car and they left for the mall.
"All I got was their message machine." Adam said as he put the phone back in the cradle.
"Did you leave a message?" Rocky asked as he opened his refrigerator.
"Yeah. I said when they get back, just to call us."
"Okay, wanna watch TV?"
"Sure. Hey Rocko, didn't you just eat?" Adam started laughing.
"Let's see what's on TV." Adam said as he flopped onto Rocky's couch and turned the TV on. "Soccer game is on."
"No soccer games." Rocky moaned as he sat down next to Adam with a bag of chips and a handful of cookies.
"Do I get anything to eat?"
"What's on the Cartoon Network?"
"Give me that." Rocky replied snatching the remote from Adam. "Scooby Doo is on."
"I haven't watched that show since I was a kid."
"Well now you're watching it."
"Rocky, you always seem to amaze me." Adam began laughing.
"What is so funny?"
"You!" Adam laughed even more.
"Laugh it up. You think you're so funny." Rocky rolled his eyes and then returned his attention to Scooby Doo.
Tommy parked Kim's convertible and the three got out and entered the mall. "I haven't been here for ages." Kim smiled as she looked around.
"Still remember where everything is?" Tommy asked jokingly.
"Do I? Come on guys." Kim replied as she grabbed Tommy and Jason and dragged them over to a furniture store.
"May I help you?" A short asian woman asked.
"Yes. I'm furnishing my apartment. Could we look at bed's first."
"Of course. Right this way." The asian woman said as she took them to their bed displays. "What size do you want?"
"Okay. These four models are twins." The asian woman replied as Kimberly circled the models and looked at them.
"Tommy, what do you think of this one?" Kim asked pointing to one with a white back.
"It's nice." Tommy answered.
"I'm going to get it. Miss, I would like this one."
"Could I also by that pink flower comforter with the pillows and sheets."
"Yes, of course. All of this can be shipped to your apartment by Thursday. Anything else?"
"Yeah. Couches." Kimberly smiled.
"What did we get ourselves into?" Jason whispered to Tommy.
Divatox looked through her telescope and found Rygog spying on Tommy. *That's the two humans I sacrificed to Malagor * Divatox thought as she looked at Kim and Jason. Rygog then appeared before her. "So what do you have to report?"
"Nothing, they are just buying furniture."
"Furniture! I want to know Tommy's connection to these ex power pukes!" Divatox screamed. "I know! A call to Rita would help. She has been dealing with the Power Rangers since the start." Divatox said as she dialed Rita's number.
"Hello?" A woman shrieked.
"Rita, its Di. I'm coming for a visit."
"Really? Who invited you?" Rita asked.
"I did. I need to know some info on the rangers."
"Fine. When are you coming?"
"Bye Bye then." Rita replied slamming the phone down.
"Rygog, I will be back in a while. Don't touch anything." Divatox commanded as she vanished from the submarine.
"Zedd! ZEDD!" Rita screamed.
"What do you want witch?" Zedd yelled back.
"Divatox is coming over."
"She wants some dirt on the rangers."
"Fine, just don't come near me."
"Why would we want to?" Rita snapped as she heard Zedd growl at her comment and leave.
"So what do you want to know first?"
"I want to know all about Jason and Kimberly."
"I hate them so much. They were the worst. First of all Jason was the original Red Ranger. He was the original leader of the team too. He led Billy, the original Blue Ranger. Trini, the original Yellow Ranger. Zack, the original Black Ranger and Kimberly, the original Pink Ranger.
"Really? Go on."
"Tommy was my evil green ranger. Jason freed him from my spell and turned him to the side of good."
"Wait, Tommy was evil?"
"Yes, very evil. He destroyed the command center. Almost killed Jason and the other rangers, but then Jason, the hero, saved him."
"So what is Jason's relationship with Tommy?"
"Those two are the best of friends. They are like brothers. They would do anything for each other."
"Perfect. What about Kimberly?"
"Oh you're going to love this."
"Tommy and Kimberly shared a very special relationship. They were lovers."
"Kimberly and Tommy were so very close. They would die for each other. Tommy was always there to save her. Her prince in shining armor, but Kimmie got invited to train in the Pan Globals. It's some sports competition. She gave her powers to Katherine and left. After a month or so she sent Tommy a letter saying she found someone else."
"It gets better. There was no other guy."
"How do you know?"
"Oh I kept watch over all the old rangers. Kim thought she was tying Tommy down. She thought he would be happy with Katherine. Katherine also used to work for me. She was evil and almost killed Kimberly. If was so fun. The day Kimmie sent that letter, she cried herself to sleep every night and Tommy even cried himself to sleep."
"Tommy, the almighty leader cried!" Divatox laughed wickedly.
"That is his weakness, Kimberly. Touch or hurt her and you will be hurting Tommy and you get on his bad side. And now that Kimberly is back and Tommy is with Kat, it'll be a mess. Poor Kimmie! Poor Tommy!" Rita began to snicker.
"This information is priceless." Divatox joined Rita and began laughing.
"Are you guys sure it's okay for me to stay till Thursday? That is 3 days from now." Kimberly asked.
"Of course it is." Tommy replied.
"Okay, well now that I have furniture and everything else for my apartment, how about dinner?"
"Sure. I'm starving." Jason answered.
"Me too." Tommy replied.
"Where to?" Kim asked.
"Let's hit the food court." Tommy suggested.
"Okay, let's go." Kim took Tommy and Jason's hand and they walked up to the food court. "Too bad Rocky's not here." Kim giggled.
"Maybe when we get back we'll call Rocky and Adam and see what their up to." Jason suggested.
"Sure. It'll be great to see them. I wasn't planning on seeing anybody till tomorrow. It was such a surprise to see you guys." Kim replied.
"You should have called and told us you were coming back. We could have planned something." Tommy said as he looked into Kim's eyes.
"I know. I just knew how busy you guys get and didn't want to be a bother."
"You're never a bother. You're our friend Kim. We love you, nothing will ever change that." Jason smiled.
"Thanks guys. I really needed to here that." Kim smiled back.
"All right enough of this mushy stuff. On with the food!" Jason replied.
"You almost sounded like Rocky." Tommy began laughing and Kim joined him.
"Very funny. Now come on." Jason replied as the three walked over to get some dinner.
Kat and Tanya entered Kat's house and went up to her room. "I think I'll take Tommy out to a fancy restaurant and tell him how I love him and that we should go steady."
"You go girl." Tanya laughed.
"It'll be perfect and then Tommy Oliver will finally be all mine."
"How about we get some dinner?"
"Sure. What do you want?"
"Let's order pizza." Kat replied as she picked up her phone and dialed the pizza place. * Tommy Oliver will be all mine. *
"That was fun." Tommy said as he, Jason and Kimberly arrived back at the apartment complex.
"Let's call Rocko and Adam." Jason replied as the walked up to their apartment. Tommy pulled out the key and unlocked the door and the walked in.
"Sorry it's not the best, but we still have to finish unpacking."
"Don't worry about it. It looks fine." Kim smiled as Jason walked over to the phone and Tommy turned on some lights.
"There's one message." Jason replied.
"Play it." Tommy responded as Jason pressed the play button.
"This Adam and Rocky. We were calling to ask if you guys want to do something."
"Adam give me the phone."
"What Mr. Shy and politeness was meaning to say is that we want to go swimming in the pool you guys have at your apartment building. So just call us when you get in. Bye."
"You guys want to go swimming?" Tommy asked.
"I do." Jason answered.
"I would love to." Kim replied.
"Great!" Tommy smiled. "I'll call Adam and Rocky." Tommy said as he dialed the number.
"Yeah. Is that you Tommy?"
"Sure is. Still want to go swimming?"
"Of course I do. Hold on." Rocky replied. Tommy could here Rocky yelling something to Adam. "Tommy?"
"We'll be there in five minutes."
"Okay and we have a surprise for you too."
"Surprise? Cool!" Rocky yelled as he hung up the phone.
"Well, the guys will be over in five minutes."
"Awesome! I'll be right back. I'm going to go get my suit on." Kim said as she ran over to her apartment.
"Jase, I can't believe this. This has been such a great day!" Tommy rejoiced.
"Calm down bro, you look like you're going to explode!" Jason laughed.
"I am. I haven't been this happy since...."
"Last time you were with Kim."
"Exactly! What am I going to do? I have to get her back." Tommy replied as Jason laughed even more. "What?"
"You've spent the entire day with Kim, you are about to go swimming with her, she is staying with us for three days and has an apartment right next to ours. Kim also still looks loving at you. She can't take her eyes off you."
"Really, now go get your suit on. She'll be back any second." Jason said as Tommy rushed off to get his suit on. Kim then walked in wearing a light pink bikini that really showed her figure. She had a white towel wrapped around her waist.
"Tommy is going to go nuts."
"What?" Kim asked.
"I said nice suit." Jason quickly answered.
"Thanks, you too." Kim said looking at Jason's black suit with a gold Nike swoosh on the side.
"Thanks." Jason smiled.
Tommy started to make his way to the living room where he heard Kim and Jason talking. He peeked in a just stared at Kim. *Whoa, she looks incredible. * Tommy thought as he leaned against the wall, his heart racing. *Get a hold of yourself, Oliver. * Tommy took a deep breath and walked over to Kim and Jason. "You guys ready?"
"Yeah." Kim said as she stared at Tommy. He was wearing a red suit, but what really caught her attention was his chest. His muscle's where defined a lot more than when she last saw him. His hair was tied back in a ponytail and he looks so good.
"Well let's go!" Jason replied as he, Tommy and Kim left the apartment right as Adam and Rocky drove up.
"Hey guys!" Rocky yelled.
"Hey. We have a surprise for you guys." Tommy smiled.
"Where is it?" Rocky asked.
"Right here." Kim replied coming from behind Tommy.
"Kim?!" Adam and Rocky said in unison and ran and hugged Kim.
"It's so great to see you." Adam replied.
"Yeah. When did you arrive?" Rocky asked as Kim filled them on the day's events.
"That is so cool!" Adam replied.
"It is, but now let's go swimming!" Rocky ran off towards the pool in the center of the apartment complex.
"Wait up!" Jason called as he and the others followed Rocky.
Rocky dropped his towel on a lawn chair and jumped into the pool. Adam and Tommy then dove in. Jason stood at the ledge of the pool. "Is it cold?" Jase asked.
"No, come on." Rocky replied.
"Well...Ahh!" Jase yelled as Kim pushed him in. "You will pay for that."
"Really?" Kim replied, but what Kim didn't notice is that Tommy sneaked out of the pool and was right behind her. Jason, Adam, and Rocky started to laugh.
"And what is so funny?" Kim asked putting her hands on her hips. Suddenly her towel came off her. "Hey!" Kim shouted as she turned around into Tommy. Tommy picked her up. "Tommy!" Kim yelled as she as Tommy jumped in the water still holding her. "Oh, I'll get you for that." Kim replied as she jumped on Tommy back and tried dunking him.
"You'll have to try a little harder than that." Tommy laughed.
"Well then I guess we'll have help her." Rocky replied as he, Adam and Jason jumped on top of Tommy. Tommy was pushed under then came back up.
"That was just a little unfair." Tommy moaned as the others laughed.
Rocky came behind Kimberly and dunked her. "Rocky!" Kim yelled as she jumped on top of him.
Jason and Adam walked over to Tommy. "So what are you going to do?" Adam asked.
"Huh?" Tommy asked.
"Oh you know. What are you going to do about Kim?" Adam replied.
"I really don't have a clue." Tommy crossed his arms across his chest and leaned against the pool wall and stared at Kim.
"Take her out." Adam suggested. "Just the two of you."
"That would be too awkward. We need to talk first." Tommy replied.
"I got it! What about the party that the Youth Center is throwing." Jason said.
"When is it again?" Tommy asked.
"It's this Saturday." Adam replied.
"Okay, but what can I do?" Tommy asked.
"Leave that to me." Jason smiled. "Tommy is something wrong? You have this terrified look on your face."
"Did you guys see all the bruises on Kim's back?" Tommy asked
"Yeah, I thought maybe they were from gymnastics." Adam replied.
"I've been watching Kim do gymnastics for years now and I've seen her fall hard, but she never got that bad off bruises." Jason said.
"That's what I thought. I mean she has then on her shoulders and some on her arms, but mainly all over her back. I don't like it." Tommy replied.
"Let's ask her." Adam whispered as he noticed Kim and Rocky come over.
"And what are you guys whispering about?" Kim asked as she came up from behind them with Rocky next to her.
"Oh nothing." Adam answered.
"Nothing, huh?" Kim asked.
"Yeah, let's go dry off and go get warm." Tommy suggested.
"Okay. I am kinda cold." Kim replied as she got out of the pool with the rest of the guys. "Tommy where did you put my towel?"
"Here." Tommy replied as he wrapped Kim's towel around her. Tommy rubbed Kim's back to make her warm.
"Ouch!" Kim yelped.
"Oh god, I'm sorry." Tommy replied.
"Don't worry about. Thanks for my towel." Kim quickly said as she rushed back to the apartment.
"No problem." Tommy replied softly. *Oh Kim, what happened? *
"What was that about?" Jason whispered.
"I hurt her. I put her towel on and softly rubbed her back and hurt her." Tommy replied back.
"That's not good. We really need to talk to her." Jason said as the entered the apartment.
"I'm home!" Divatox called as she entered the control room of the submarine. "So how are the rangers?"
"They are all happy. The guy rangers along with Jason and Kimberly just went swimming. The other two girl rangers are eating pizza and talking, but they are all in good moods." Rygog replied.
"Enjoy while it lasts rangers because tomorrow is another story." Divatox grinned wickedly.
"Hey Kat, what time is it?"
"It's eleven o'clock." Kat yawned.
"Want to get some sleep?" Tanya asked.
"Yeah, I am tierd." Kat replied as she crawled into her sleeping bag on the floor of her room and Tanya climbed into hers. "Good night Tanya."
"Good night Kat." Tanya replied closing her eyes.
"Well we have to go home. It's getting late and if I pass curfew I'll be hearing a load full of Spanish. I can't even translate all of it. My mom speaks way to fast." Rocky said as he put his blue shirt on.
"Yeah, it is late." Adam agreed as he put his green shirt on.
"Okay, we'll see ya guys later." Jason replied as he opened the door. "I'll call you tomorrow about the dance." Jason whispered.
"All right. See ya later." Adam replied.
"Dance?" Rocky whined.
"Shut up." Adam hit Rocky in the stomach.
"Bye guys!" Kim replied.
"Bye Kim." Rocky replied as he hugged Kim. *Why did she just wince in pain? * Rocky thought as he and Adam walked down to his car and Jason closed the door to the apartment.
Kim walked over to the couch and sat down. * Oh god what am I going to do? I have to tell them. I know they noticed. * Kim sighed.
Tommy looked over at Kim. * I want to ask her so many questions. What happened to you? * Tommy thought as Jason walked in the room and could feel the tension.
"Um, could I take a shower here? I didn't call the landlord yet and he won't turn the water or the electricity on until I call." Kim asked.
"Sure." Jason replied.
"Thanks. I also need to get some clothes from my apartment. Do you guys have a flash light?"
"Yeah. I'll go help you." Tommy answered as he walked into his room and returned with a flashlight. "Ready?"
"Yeah." Kim smiled as she and Tommy walked over to her apartment. Kim opened the door and Tommy turned on the flashlight.
"So what are we looking for?" Tommy asked a he walked over a box.
"A pink duffel bag and the..."
"Your football bag with your name on it."
"The one I gave you before you left?"
"Oh." Tommy looked around for the bag. "Here it is." Tommy said as picked up the bag and looked at it. Tommy had noticed that a pink heart had been drawn around his name.
"Thanks." Kim replied. "I found my other bag too."
"Well then let's go back...." Tommy paused.
"Did you hear that?"
"Listen." Tommy looked around. Outside, standing next to the door was Rygog. He was listening in, but then Tommy and Kimberly got quiet and he moved closer. Kimberly noticed Tommy's whole body tensing up. Tommy quickly took off towards the door.
"Tommy!" Kim cried, unsure of what he was doing.
Rygog came crashing to the ground. "Get off of me you stupid human!" Rygog yelled as Tommy got up in a defensive stance.
"Who are you?" Tommy demanded.
"You don't recognize me? Well let me help you remember." Rygog replied as he turned back into his true form. Kim came to the door and froze. "Oh look it's the little former power puke. Didn't I sacrifice you to Malagor?" Rygog laughed.
"You'll pay for what you did." Tommy growled.
Kim stood their frozen. All the scary memories of that day came flooding back. "I remember you." Kim snapped as she got in a defensive stance. "And you're going to pay for what you did to Jason, the rangers and I.
"What are you going to do? You have no powers! They're in the hands of Katherine, along with you friends and sweet love." Rygog snickered.
"I think it's time for you to shut up!" Tommy yelled as he did a roundhouse kick to Rygog's head.
"You blasted human! Piranhas!" Rygog commanded as a hoard of fish looking warriors appeared. "Attack!"
The Piranhas ran towards Kimberly and Tommy. Kimberly threw her towel off and Tommy charged the piranhas. "Back off!" Kim shouted as she punched a piranha in the stomach.
Jason walked out of the shower and wrapped a black towel around his waist. He opened the bathroom door to find the apartment still empty. *What's that noise? * Jason thought as he heard the struggling cries of his friends. Jason grabbed his suit off a chair and slipped into it. He then ran to the aid of his friends.
Adam walked into his house after being dropped off by Rocky and walked slowly up the stairs to his room. He stripped his dirty clothes off and slipped into a pair of worn out, green sweatpants. "What a day. I can't believe Kim is back. I didn't know how much I missed her. Maybe things will get back to the way it was, before Kat came." Adam yawned as he flopped onto his bed and fell asleep.
Rocky parked his car and walked into his house. "Hi mom." Rocky said.
"Hola, mi hijo ." Rocky's mom replied.
"I'm going to bed. Good night." Rocky replied as he walked up to his bedroom to find his little brother, Joey, sitting on his bed and watching his TV. "Out!"
"No way! I'm watching Bugs Bunny."
"Not anymore!" Rocky replied as he slung his brother over his shoulder.
"Rocky! Put me down. You are such a loser!" Joey shouted.
"Oh, I'm so hurt. Now here's where you belong." Rocky said as he dropped Joey on his bed. "Goodnight." Rocky walked back into his room and changed into a pair of blue boxers and flopped on his bed. *I hope we can help Kim out. I really wish I knew who or what caused those bruises. I swear if someone was hurting Kim, he'll have to deal with me, Adam, Jase, and Tommy. Oh god if someone was hurting Kim and Tommy got a hold of him, oh man, that would not be pretty.* Rocky laughed and then closed his eyes and fell asleep.
"Let go of me!" Kim yelled as a piranha wrapped his slimy fins around her waist. Another piranha started punching her in the stomach.
"Get off of her!" Tommy demanded as he threw the piranhas off of Kim.
"I think it's time we finish this!" Jason cried as he slammed his fist into a piranha's face.
"I agree." Rygog replied. "Red ranger!" Rygog called as he slammed his fist into Tommy's face. Tommy went flying and slammed into a wall.
"Tommy!" Kim cried as she rushed to his side.
"I'll be seeing you." Rygog laughed as he vanished.
Jason rushed over to Kim and Tommy. "Is he okay?"
"He's out cold."
"Let's get him inside and contact Zordon." Jason replied as he and Kim lifted Tommy up and carried him inside. Jason and Kim laid Tommy on the couch and Kim ran over and got a wet towel. She put the towel on Tommy's head and caressed his face. Jason took Tommy's communicator and contacted Zordon.
"Kim, Tommy and I were attacked by Rygog and things called Piranhas. Tommy is unconscious, but Rygog and his goons are gone."
"IT SEEMS THAT DIVATOX HAS COME TO EARTH. TAKE CARE OF TOMMY AND I SHALL FIND OUT MORE. OH AND WELCOME BACK KIMBERLY."
"Thanks Zordon." Kim answered.
"Right Zordon." Jason replied as he put Tommy's communicator back on his wrist. "You should probably go shower and get some sleep."
"I wouldn't be able to sleep. I'm going to stay here with Tommy." Kimberly said as she brushed some hair out of Tommy's face.
"I'll get you a sweatshirt." Jason replied as he walked back to the bedrooms and returned with a red sweatshirt.
"Is this yours or Tommy's?" Kim half smiled.
"Tommy's. He wears it a lot." Jason laughed. "Goodnight." Jason said as he kissed Kim on the cheek and walked back to the bedroom. Kimberly put the sweatshirt over her swimsuit.
Kim took Tommy's hand and kissed it. "Goodnight Tommy." Kim whispered as she sat down and leaned against the couch and closed her eyes.
"Rygog!" Divatox screamed.
"You weren't supposed to get caught, you fool!"
"I'm sorry, but I did hurt the red ranger."
"Well just because of that, I'll let you off the hook. Now get out of my sight before I change my mind!" Divatox yelled. She paced back and forth, thinking of the past events. "Now that I have this information, how should I use it to my advantage?"
The sun slowly crept its way up into the sky. It's beautiful rays of light peered through the windows of Jason and Tommy's apartment. The light fell on Kimberly's soft sleeping face and she slowly began to open her eyes. "Oh god, what time is it?" Kim moaned as she got up and walked over to the kitchen. "It's 6:30!" Kim said as she looked at Tommy. He was still sound asleep on the couch. "I bet he won't be up for another couple of hours." Kim giggled as she walked into the bathroom and turned the shower on. Kim took off Tommy's sweatshirt. She looked in the mirror at her back and body. "My poor back. I am so glad that I escaped that hell hole." Kim said as she took off her suit and hopped into the shower. As soon as she got in someone knocked on the door. "Yes?"
"It's Jase. I'm going to the store to get some food. It's looks like Tommy forgot to get some yesterday."
"What else is new." Kim laughed.
"I'll be back in a little."
"Bye." Jason said as he walked out of the apartment. * And maybe this will give you and Tommy some time to talk. * * This hot water feels great on my back, too bad I have to get out. * Kim smiled as she turned the water off and put Tommy's red sweatshirt,which reached her knees, back on. She then twisted her hair up in a towel. Tommy opened his eyes and sat up. "My head is killing me." Tommy moaned. He got up and turned around right as Kim came out of the bathroom. Kim was humming as she walked out of the bathroom, but soon fell quiet as she noticed Tommy was up and staring right at her.
"Is your head okay?" Kim quickly asked.
"Yeah. I'm just not quite sure what happened."
"Rygog hit you in the face and you went flying into the a wall. You hit your head pretty bad. Jase and I carried you in here and I slept next to you. I was really worried."
"Oh. Thanks for taking care of me."
"You know I would always be there for you." Kim blushed.
"Yeah. I know." Tommy smiled. "Man do I have a headache."
"I'll get you some aspirin."
"That's okay. I'll get it."
"No. I'll get it." Kim replied as she walked back into the bathroom and opened the medicine cabinet. "Pour a glass of water for yourself."
"Here." Kim said as she handed Tommy the two aspirin. "Now let me take a look at that bruise." Kim said as Tommy swallowed the aspirin.
"Be quiet while I look." Kim replied as she got on her tippy toes and looked as his head, but Kim didn't realize how close she was and she gave Tommy a great view down the sweatshirt. .
*Wow. My sweatshirt certainly looks way better on her than it does on me. * Tommy thought and smiled.
"Well luckily there is just a little bruise." Kim smiled.
"Thanks." Tommy smiled back. "So what do you want to do today?"
"I would love to go to the Youth Center. I really missed it while I was in Florida."
"Sounds great. Jase and I are teaching a class today. Want to demonstrate some moves?"
"Yeah, Jase and I were trying to find a girl to demonstrate some moves."
"Why a girl?"
"Well the girls in our class seem to be intimidated by the guys and the guys think girls can't do martial arts. We wanted to show the class that a girl can be just a good as a guy."
"Why not ask Tanya or Kat?"
Tommy bit back a little laugh. " They really don't know anything about martial arts. I mean they can fight, but not like you can."
"I was taught by the best."
"Will you do it?"
"I will, but only on one condition."
"What would that be?"
"I get to spar against you."
"Yeah. If you don't want me to I won't.
"No, it's not that. I would like to. It's a deal.
"Good, because I going to beat you." Kim giggled.
"Oh really?" Tommy replied as he wrapped his arms around her waist.
"Oh yeah." Kim said as she started to wrestle with Tommy.
Jason walked up to the apartment room carrying two bags of groceries to hear loud laughter coming from it. *What in the world? * Jason thought as he unlocked the door and found Kimberly and Tommy wrestling on the floor. "What in the world is going on here?" Jason laughed. Kim and Tommy stopped quickly and both their faces turned red as tomatoes.
"Uh..nothing." Tommy stood up and helped Kim up.
"Nothing?" Jason replied.
"Yeah. Do you need help with the groceries?" Kim said as she took a grocery bag from Jason.
"Yes. There is more in my car." Jason replied as he put the other bag on the kitchen counter.
"I'll go get them." Tommy said as he walked out the door, down to the car. Jason stood there and smiled at Kim.
"What?" Kim asked.
"You two are too funny."
"Tommy was just talking to me about your class and if I would demonstrate some moves on behalf of the female species. I said yes and said I would spar him. I also told he I would beat him and then we just started to wrestle."
"Oh shut up Jase." Kim laughed. "I'm going to get dressed."
"All right." Jason replied as he put the groceries away and Tommy came through the door with a couple bags. "Did you get them all?"
"Yeah. I also closed the doors and locked the car." Tommy answered.
"Thanks. I see you had fun while I was gone."
"Very funny Jase."
"Kim is also going to be the female demonstrator for our class?"
"Yeah. Do you mind?"
"Of course not bro. I'm glad that Kim will be doing it. She like a little sister to me."
"Great. I better go get ready for the class." Tommy replied as he went back to his room.
Adam walked into the Youth Center to be greeted by Tanya and Kat. "Hi Adam." The girls said in unison.
"Hi." Adam replied dryly.
"So what did you do last night?" Tanya asked.
"Rocky and I went swimming with Tommy and Jase at their apartments pool."
"You did? You should have called and told us, we would have loved to have gone swimming with you guys." Kat replied in her thick australian accent.
"So when are the others supposed to get here?" Tanya asked.
"Rocky will be here any minute to spar with me. Jase and Tommy have a class to teach and Justin is in their class, so I'm guessing they'll be here soon too." Adam answered as he walked over to where the mats were laid out. *And won't you guys be surprised when Kim arrives with them. * Adam thought as he put his bag down.
"Is he angry at us or something?" Tanya asked Kat as they sat down at the ranger's usual table.
"Maybe he didn't sleep well last night." Kat replied as Lt. Stone came up to them.
"What can I get you?" Lt. Stone asked.
"I'll have a strawberry smoothie." Kat replied.
"And I will have the orange-pineapple smoothie." Tanya said as Rocky entered the Youth Center and walked over to Adam.
"Hey man." Rocky greeted Adam as he put his bag down.
"Ready to spar?"
"You ready to get beat?"
"We'll see about that." Rocky replied as he walked onto the mats. Adam and Rocky bowed towards each other and then got into defensive stances.
At first the two friends circled each other and then Rocky charged Adam with a spinning kick. Adam blocked and then threw his fist towards Rocky. Rocky barely dodged Adam's quick upper punch and rolled out of the way. Justin then walked in and went and sat down with the girls. "Hi guys." Justin smiled.
"Hey Justin. Ready for your class luv?" Kat asked.
"Yeah. I can't wait!" Justin replied excitedly.
"That's wonderful. You'll do great." Tanya said as Tommy walked in with Jason and a familiar girl. "Hey look theirs Jase and Tommy. They're with some girl."
"Who?" Kat asked.
"I don't know. Look." Tanya replied and Kat looked. "Kat are you okay? You're looking a little pale."
"That's Kimberly." Kat said almost too low to hear.
"Kimberly? You mean...oh lord." Tanya replied.
"Kimberly is the one we saved on Miranthius." Justin smiled and took off towards the three.
"When did she get here?" Kat asked.
"Who knows." Tanya answered.
"Hey guys! Nice to see you again Kimberly." Justin greeted.
"Hi Justin. It's nice to see you too. I think you've grown since the last time I saw you." Kim replied.
"Really? Awesome!" Justin jumped with joy.
"You ready for class?" Tommy asked.
"You bet!" Justin smiled.
"Let's go warm up." Jason replied as they all walked over to the other set of mats.
"Is Adam beating you yet Rocko?" Tommy joked as they passed Rocky and Adam.
"Shut up." Rocky retorted as he blocked one of Adam's kicks.
"Don't worry, I'll beat him soon." Adam laughed.
"We'll see about that." Rocky replied.
Kim set her bag down and took off her jacket to reveal a two piece, pink, gymnastics suit. "So what exactly do you guys want me to do?" Kim asked.
"Well you'll be sparing with Tommy and we'll probably make you just demonstrate some easy moves. Anything else Tommy?" Jason asked, but Tommy just stood there and stared at Kim. "Tommy?"
"Earth to Tommy?" Kim giggled.
"Sorry. No that's all." Tommy replied.
"Okay, well I'm going to loosen up." Kim said as she walked onto the mats.
"Bro, you have got it bad." Jason laughed.
"Tell me about it." Tommy sighed.
"Here comes Kat and Tanya." Jason sighed as the girls came up to them.
Kim sat down and stretched her legs out. She looked over to Tommy and Jason to see Kat run up to Tommy and wrapped her arms around his waist. Kat then leaned over and kissed Tommy. Kim quickly looked down. Tears began to flow down her face and she felt like she was going to be sick. * Oh god, why did I have to see that.* Kim thought as she wiped the tears and tried to compose herself.
Jason looked over to Kimberly. He could tell what she feeling. * Damnit Kat. You just had to do that. * Jason thought. "If you guys will excuse me." Jason dryly said as he walked over to Kimberly.
"So luv, Adam told us you went swimming. You should have called me. I would have loved to see your new apartment and gone swimming with you." Kat smiled.
"Sorry." Tommy replied. * Man, I really wish she hadn't of kissed me and I wish she would get off of me. * Tommy thought. He ignored Kat and Tanya blabber on and on. He turned his attention to Kimberly over on the mats.
"You okay?" Jason asked as he sat down next to Kim.
"Yeah, I'm perfectly fine." Kim half smiled.
"What do you mean by that?"
"You know exactly what I mean. Kim I've known you for years now. I can tell when your upset. When Kat kissed Tommy, it hurt you."
"Jason, I broke up with Tommy. He can do what ever he pleases, with however he wants."
"Damnit Kim! Why can't you just admit you still love him and you never stopped? I still don't understand why you even sent that fucking letter! You come back and act like everything is fine. Everything is not fine and you can't avoid this problem forever."
"I know that!" Kim screamed and everybody turned around to stare. Tommy walked over to Kim and Jason.
"What's going on?" Tommy asked, his voice very low.
"Nothing, it's time for the class." Jason quickly replied.
"Okay." Tommy said as he walked over back over to Justin, Kat, and Tanya.
Jason turned back to Kimberly. "If you know then do something about it." Jason snapped as he walked back over to the gang. "You ready Tommy?"
"Yeah, let's start." Tommy replied.
"Oh Tommy, what about a demonstrator?" Kat asked.
"Kim's going to be the demonstrator." Tommy said as he, Jason, and Justin walked over to Kim on the mats.
"Ready?" Tommy asked Kim.
"Yeah." Kim replied softly.
"I'm fine. Let's start." Kim smiled as the two walked over to Jason and started the class.
"Who does that bitch think she is?" Kat snapped.
"I totally agree. Now what?" Tanya replied.
"When Kimberly left and then sent that letter, she lost her place on the team, lost her friends and most important, she lost Tommy. He is mine now and she will never have him back."
"Place on the team?" Tanya asked.
"Nevermind." Kat replied. "She'll have to get past me first." Kat glared over at Kim.
"Um...I will be right back." Tanya said as she rushed over to where Adam and Rocky were still sparing. Tanya warily walked up to Adam. "Guys, could I speak to you?"
"What do you want Tanya?" Rocky snapped.
"Yeah, we are sparing." Adam answered dryly.
"All right, I know you guys are pissed off at me, but you have got to listen to me." Tanya stated.
"We're listening." Rocky replied.
"I'm worried about Kimberly."
"Why do you give a damn about Kim?" Adam growled.
"Was she ever a ranger?"
"What?!?" Adam and Rocky said in unison.
"What does that have to do anything?" Rocky asked.
"Just answer the question." Tanya argued.
"Yes. She was the original pink ranger. She, Jason, Billy, Trini, and Zack were the original five chosen by Zordon in the very beginning." Rocky explained.
"What about you guys and Tommy? Who is Zack and Trini?"
"Well, Zack and Trini were the original black and yellow rangers. When Jason, Trini and Zack left for the International Teen Peace Summit, Rocky, Aisha, and I took their places. Rocky was the red ranger, Aisha was the yellow ranger, and I was the black ranger. Tommy originally was the green ranger and came a while after the team had already been formed. What is this all about?" Adam asked.
"We have got a problem." Tanya answered as she turned around and glared at Kat.
Outside, a harsh storm began to brew. Heavy rains and ferocious winds began their trouble while the thunder and lightning scared little children into their mothers arms. Inside the Youth Center, the rangers had their own storm brewing.
"Tanya, what are you talking about?" Rocky asked.
"Kat told me she was the original pink ranger and she has also told me these other lies about how the rangers were started and how you guys met." Tanya replied.
"What does this have to do with Kim?" Adam asked.
"I can't explain it, but as soon as Kim walked in today, Kat got a evil way about her. It's like she tasted evil before."
"That's because she has." Adam replied.
"What?" Tanya gasped.
"Yeah, that's how we met Kat. She was under one of Rita's spells and almost killed Kim." Rocky explained.
"You guys, I don't know what else to tell you, but that Kat is going to do something to Kim." Tanya sighed.
"Great class today." Tommy smiled as he bowed to his students.
"And what do we say to Kim?" Jason asked.
"Thank you." The class answered in unison.
"And what will you never question again?" Kim asked.
"That girls can do Martial arts just as good as guys can." The class replied.
"Good. You can go now." Tommy announced as the children walked over to their parents and left. "Great demonstration Kim."
"Thanks. Do we get still get to spar?" Kim smiled.
"Only if you're up to it." Tommy replied.
*I guess my aching body, especially my back can put up with it, just for a little longer. * Kim thought. "Let's do it."
"Okay..." Tommy started, but a familiar beep sounded. Tommy looked around and walked over to a secluded corner with Kim. "Come in Zordon."
"DIVATOX HAS SENT RYGOG AND A BOMB TO DOWNTOWN ANGELGROVE. YOU AND THE OTHERS MUST GO AND STOP HIM AND THE BOMB."
"We're on our way." Tommy replied as he walked over to where Tanya, Rocky, and Adam were. "Guys we've got a situation."
"Let's go." Adam whispered back as they walked over to Kat, Jason, and Justin.
"Guys, duty calls." Tommy said as they got up and they all left the Youth Center. They walked outside to see that it was storming. "Jase, Rocky, Kim, you guys could teleport to the Power Chamber and take care of things from there like Billy used to."
"Sure." Jason answered.
"Awesome." Rocky smiled.
"No thanks." Kim replied.
"Why not?" Adam asked.
"I think I'll get something to eat and then go back to they apartment." Kim answered.
"I don't think it's a good idea to leave you alone." Tommy replied.
"Uh, guys...we don't have time for this. Kim is not the priority here." Kat snapped. The other rangers turned around and glared at her.
"Kat's right. I'll be fine." Kim replied.
"Alright." Tommy sighed. "Shift into Turbo!"
"Wind Chaser, Turbo Power!"
"Dune Star, Turbo Power!"
"Mountain Blaster, Turbo Power!"
"Desert Thunder, Turbo Power!"
"Red Lightning!" Tommy called as the rangers transformed into their suits. "Alpha transport Jason and Rocky to the Power chamber."
"You gotta it Tommy." Alpha replied as Rocky and Jason vanished in flashes of white and gray. "Let's go guys." Tommy commanded as the others teleported downtown. Tommy stood there and glanced once more at Kim and then teleported.
"Be careful." Kim whispered softly as she turned and walked back into the Youth Center. Kim went and sat down at a table and Lt. Stone came up to take her order.
"What can I get you?" Lt. Stone asked.
"A salad please." Kim answered.
"Be back in a sec." Lt. Stone replied. Then two familiar people walked over to Kim.
"Kimberly! You're back!"
"Hi Bulk." Kim smiled.
"When did you get back?"
"Hi Skull. I got back yesterday." Kim replied.
"Awesome. So are you back for good?" Bulk asked, but Kim just sat there and stared at a guy who was leaning on the bar. "Kim?"
*Oh my god. * "Um...could you guys do me a favor?" Kim asked.
"Sure." Skull replied.
"See that guy in the black coat?" Kim asked as she pointed to a tall, muscular guy with brown, short hair and wearing a black rain coat.
"Yeah. Why?" Bulk replied.
"Can you guys distract him while I get out of here?"
"Why?" Skull asked.
"Please." Kim pleaded.
"Of course." Bulk answered.
"Thanks." Kim replied as Bulk and Skull walked over to the man.
"Hey buddy!" Bulk called as he stood right in front of the man so his vision of the Youth Center was blocked.
"Can I help you?" The man asked trying to look over Bulk.
"Yeah, we have a few questions to ask you." Skull replied.
*This is my chance. * Kim thought as she quickly jumped out of her chair, ran over to her bag, picked it up and ran out of the Youth Center. "Damnitt, Tommy has the car keys." Kim cursed under her breath. "Looks like I'll be walking home."
Kim walked through the park as the rain began to pour harder, but Kim's mind was on something or should I say someone else. *How did he find me? This can't be happening. I left him back in Florida! * Kim thought as she continued to walk, but then she stopped abruptly in her tracks. The man she thought she had lost at the Youth Center was standing in front of her, his black coat waving in the wind.
"Hello Kimberly." The man grinned wickedly as Kimberly began stepping backwards away from the man.
"How did you find me?" Kim asked.
"A choking gymnast told me."
"What did you do to Ally?"
"Don't worry, you'll see her, but in what condition, who knows."
"NOOOOO!" Kim screamed as she flung her bag at the man. Her bag hit him in the face and he crashed to the ground and Kim took off running. The man quickly got up and ran after Kimberly.
"You can't escape me!" The man called to her.
*The apartment building is right down the street. I just got to reach it. * Kim thought as she kept running. She finally reached the apartment building. Kim ran up the stairs, took out her keys. "Damnitt go in." Kim said as she pushed the door open. She could hear the man coming up the stairs. Kim stepped into Tommy and Jason's apartment and quickly shut the door in the man's face.
She locked the door and stepped away from it and just stood and stared at it. The man started pounding on the door. "Go away!" Kim screamed.
"You'll never get rid of me!" The man yelled back as he continued to try to knock the door down.
"Why won't you leave me alone!?!"
"Don't you know I love you?!?"
"Love!?! You don't even know what love is!"
"And that long haired ass Tommy, does?"
"Yes! Tommy is the most loving, caring and wonderful guy!" Kim screamed as a bolt of lightning was seen from the window and lights went out.
The room was pitch dark. Kim's breathing suddenly got faster and faster. Tears were flowing down her face. The door was finally knocked down by the man. Kim screamed as he jumped on her knocking her to the ground. He continuously began to hit in the face. "Get off of me!" Kim screamed a she kicked him in the crouch. The man sat on the ground for a sec. Kim got up and ran towards the door, but a hand grabbed her ankle and she came crashing down to the ground. "Someone help me!" Kim screamed.
"Shut up, you bitch!" The man yelled as he hit Kim in the face. The man hit her and kicked her. She had bruises all over her face and blood was dripping down her cheek. The man then pulled a knife from his pocket.
"Noooo!" Kim yelled as the man stabbed Kim in the stomach, but then he heard footsteps coming up the stairs. He quickly got up and ran back to one of the bedrooms, he opened a window and was gone.
The footsteps that the man heard finally arrived to see Kimberly lying on the floor with blood everywhere. Kim tried to keep her eyes open. She could see a blurry shadow over her and the blur yelled, "Call an ambulance!" Then everything went dark for the girl, named Kimberly Hart.
"Give it up Rygog! We've won!" Tommy pronounced.
"Then if you've won, I'll leave." Rygog snickered as he and the piranhas vanished.
"That was weird." Adam said.
"No kidding. He gave up so easily." Justin agreed.
"At the moment I'm way to tired to be concerned with Rygog." Tommy replied. "Let's report back to the Power Chamber and then go home and get some rest."
"Sounds great. Let's get out of the rain." Adam replied.
"Yeah, lightning always scares me." Tanya agreed as the rangers teleported to the Power Chamber. The rangers appeared in the Power Chamber to be greeted by Jason and Rocky.
"Great job bro." Jason smiled.
"Thanks." Tommy replied. "Power down!" Tommy shouted as the rangers turbo uniforms vanished and they were again in their normal clothes. "Let's go home."
"TOMMY, BE ON THE WATCH FOR MORE ATTACKS. RYGOG GAVE UP TOO EASILY. I DON'T LIKE IT." Zordon commanded.
"I agree Zordon. All of us will be alert." Tommy replied.
"GOOD. NOW GO GET SOME REST." Zordon said as the rangers teleported back to their homes.
Tommy and Jason pulled up in their apartment complex to find the parking lot filled with police cars and ambulances. Tommy parked his truck and Jason and him got out. Jason and Tommy pushed through the crowd of spectators and reached the front doors of the complex. A police officer quickly stepped in front of them. "Can I help you?"
"Yes. We live here." Jason answered.
"You live here?" The police officer asked.
"Yes. What happened?" Tommy replied.
"A girl has been stabbed and abused. The paramedics are up their now. They should be bringing her down soon."
"Is she dead?" Jason asked.
"I have no clue." The police officer answered.
(Oh my god.) "Do you know what apartment?" Tommy nervously asked.
"Yes. Room 20, on the fourth floor." The officer replied. "Are you okay son?" The officer asked Tommy, who looked like he had seen a ghost. With that Tommy took off running into the apartment complex. "Son, you can't go in there!"
"That's our room." Jason yelled back as he took off, running after Tommy. Tommy kept running up the stairs as fast he could. Two police officers stepped in front of him before he could get to his apartment.
"Son, I don't know what you think you're doing, but you can't go in there." The officer announced, but Tommy didn't care. He punched the officer in the stomach and threw the other into the wall. More police officers heard the commotion and ran over to stop Tommy. Jason reached the room and saw the two officer's down. He then entered the apartment to see lamps turned over, the door and been smashed and then he saw something that scared him: blood. It was all over the floor.
Tommy was fighting off police officers and then he saw it, he saw her. She was being lifted to the stretcher and the paramedics were all over her. The had cloths that they pressing against her stomach and the cloths were soaked red. They had an oxygen mask on her and her eyes weren't open and there was no color in her face. Tommy stopped struggling with the officers and just stood there. Only one thought came to Tommy's mind and he said it. "I love her."
Love wandered inside
Stronger than you
Stronger than I
And now that it has begun
We cannot turn back
We can only turn into one
The paramedics carried Kim out on the stretcher and lifted her into the ambulance. One of the officers said they would take Jason and Tommy to the hospital. Both of them just knodded. An officer said they were just in shock and another asked what Tommy had said. One of the officers said that Tommy had said that he loved the victim and that the poor teenager looked as he was the one who had been stabbed, but not in the stomach, but in the heart.
I won't be ever too far away to feel you
And I won't hesitate at all
Whenever you call
And I'll always remember
The part of you so tender
I'll be the one to catch your fall
Whenever you call
Tommy and Jason entered the hospital and sat down in the waiting room, not moving, not talking. The nurses looked at them with concerned faces as they passed by and one even stopped and asked if they wanted something to drink, but both of them just shook their heads. The doctors didn't even know what to say or do. They weren't even quite sure what exactly happened, except a girl was stabbed and abused and these two boys were in the waiting room, waiting for the outcome of someone they seemed to careful very deeply.
And I'm truly inspired
Finding my soul
There in your eyes
Have opened my heart
And lifted me inside
By showing me yourself
Tommy couldn't think strait. Only the picture of Kim on the stretcher holding on for dear life remained forever imbedded in his mind. He couldn't get over the fact that she was bleeding, she was attacked, in his apartment and he wasn't there to save her. He wasn't there to protect her. He promised himself, that no matter what, he would always protect her, but he failed. Those thoughts and images kept going through Tommy's mind and he couldn't hold it in any longer. Small tears began to fall down the his strong face.
And I won't ever be too far away to feel you
And I won't hesitate at all
Whenever you call
And I'll always remember
The part of you so tender
I'll be the one to catch your fall
Whenever you call
Jason got up and walked over to a pay phone and dialed Adam's phone number. He had to get the guys here. Someone had to help Tommy because he can't be the shoulder for Tommy to lean on because for once he needed the shoulder to lean on.
And I will breathe for you each day
Comfort you through all the pain
Gently kiss your fears away
You can turn to me and cry
Always understand that I
Give you all I am inside
Adam slowly hung up the phone. Jason had just called him with nightmarish news. Adam quickly dialed Rocky's number, Tanya's, Justin's and even Kat's. He told them what had happened and that to get to the hospital at that very moment.
And I won't ever be too far away to feel you
And I won't hesitate at all
Whenever you call
Adam, Rocky, Tanya, Kat, and Justin entered the waiting room to see Jason and Tommy sitting in chairs and they looked like hell. Adam and Rocky sat on either side of Jason. They weren't quite sure what to do, but just be there.
Tanya sat next to Tommy and saw that he was crying. She quickly wrapped her arms around him and tried to comfort him, but because of what happened she didn't think anything would make Tommy be okay except for Kim to be okay.
Justin sat down on the floor in front of Tommy and Tanya. He couldn't believe Tommy was crying. Never in his wildest dreams did he think he would ever see Tommy cry. He was at a lost.
Kat wished she was the one holding Tommy. She didn't even feel the bit bad about what had happened to Kimberly. She sat down in a chair and thought that if Kim died, Tommy would be all hers. What a good thing for her.
I won't ever be too far to feel you
And I won't hesitate at all
Whenever you call
I'll always remember
That part of you so tender
Pain is what Tommy felt and he didn't know if this was the beginning or end of the pain. All he knew is that the person he loves with all his heart may die at any minute or even be dead and the doctors haven't told them yet or had the heart to tell them yet. He hadn't even been able to tell her that he never stopped loving her and that he stills and will always love her. He didn't know if she felt the same. What if never would know? Could he possible live knowing that she is dead? He knew Kim was a big believer in god and that he protected people. Tommy wasn't a big believer, but that night, he prayed to god to not take Kim from him. It's not her time. I still have so much to tell her and show her. He just prayed he would hold Kim in his arms again.
And be the one to catch your fall
Whenever you call
"I'm coming. Hold on." Divatox answered as she came in the submarines main room. "Very nice job."
"Thank you, but I need a shower and a change of clothes. I'm afraid I have someone's blood all over me." The man wickedly smiled as he threw off his blood stained black coat.
"Oh how 'horrible'." Divatox laughed. "I'm so glad I found you. You, my boy are a valuable weapon."
"Thank you, but when do I get my 'payment'?"
"Don't worry, you'll get what you asked for. I have to get my warriors down and you will go with them to attack the rangers. That's when you'll get your 'payment'." Divatox grinned.
"Can't wait." The man laughed.
A doctor walked into the waiting room. He looked down at the seven teenagers. (These poor kids.) "Hi. I am Doctor Temple. I am one of Miss Kimberly Hart's doctors. Is her mother Mrs. Hart-Laurence or her father Mr. Hart here yet? " The doctor greeted as Adam and the others stood up.
"Hi, I'm Adam Park. This is Tommy Oliver, Jason Lee Scott, Rocky DeSantos, Tanya Sloan, Katherine Sutherland and Justin Stewart." Adam answered as he pointed out each of the rangers. "And no they aren't here yet. Mrs. Harte-Laurence is on a plane coming from France right now and won't be here till sometime tomorrow."
"The same with Mr. Harte. He is on a plane coming from Northern Virginia and won't be here till tomorrow morning." Rocky also answered.
"Okay. I can fill them in tomorrow." Doctor Templer replied.
"What do you mean by one of her doctors?" Tanya asked.
"Miss Hart is in surgery with Doctor Russo and Doctor Hoover. I am her regular doctor. I had to bring her records and any information I had about her."
"Do you know her condition?" Jason spoke up.
"No, I'm afraid it's too early. I won't know anything until Miss Hart is out of surgery."
"Do you know when she will be out?" Tommy softly asked.
"I believe in the next thirty minutes or so. Please don't worry, Miss Hart has two of the best doctors in California working on her and I promise I will personally do anything to help her." Doctor Templer smiled.
"Thank you." Tommy replied as he rubbed his tired eyes.
"I will be back in a little. Maybe you kids should get something to eat." Doctor Templer said as he left the waiting room.
"Tanya, why don't you and Kat take Justin to the cafeteria to get something to eat." Adam suggested.
"Okay." Tanya said as she took Justin's hand and left with Kat.
"Come on, let's go freshen up." Rocky suggested as he put his hand on Tommy's shoulder and led him to the men's room. Tommy entered and splashed some water on his face.
"Did all of this really happen Rocko?" Tommy somberly asked.
"Unfortunately yes." Rocky answered.
"What if she doesn't make it? What do we do then?"
"She will make it. If there's one thing I learned about Kim, it is that she is fighter. Kimberly has been through so much and this will not be the event that takes her down. She has been in worst battles." Rocky replied.
"Thanks Rocko." Tommy tried to smile as the two walked out.
"You guys okay." Adam asked as Rocky and Tommy walked back into the room. "Yeah. We're going to fine." Tommy yawned as he sat down on the couch.
"Have we even slept yet?" Jason yawned.
"No, but I think yawns are catching." Rocky yawned.
"I know. I remember someone saying that once someone in a group yawns, the yawn goes around and everybody yawns." Adam agreed.
"Kim." Tommy answered. "Kim?" Jason asked. "Kim was the one who said that." Tommy answered, which made everybody look towards the floor in silence. The four guys just sat there in a dead silence. "I remember when Adam, Aisha, and I first came here. The first thing I remember when we meet you guys was the way Kim greeted us. I had never seen someone smile the way she does. She was so open and friendly. That was something I needed in a new place." "Yeah. I remember her smile when I first moved here. I had never seen someone so full of energy and love. Her presence could brighten up an entire room. No matter how rough it got at times, Kim always tried to smile and keep our spirits up." Tommy smiled at the memory of Kimberly. "Kim has always been like that. I've known her since she was born. She is like a little sister to me. I have so many memories of things we've gone through and done. In the beginning of this entire mess only one thought kept coming into my mind: What would be like not to share any more good or bad times with her? I never realized how big a part of my life she is." Jason sighed. "I think she has made a big impact on all of us. We all have good memories of Kimberly and in my heart I believe there is still many to come." Adam smiled. "I remember when Tommy asked Kim to the dance. She comes and knocks so hard on Billy's door. He was showing Trini and I a new invention. Trini open's Billy's door and Kim comes bouncing and screams 'Tommy asked me to the dance!' She paused and then softly said 'He also kissed me.' I'll never forget how happy she was." Jason laughed. "Go Tommy!" Rocky laughed and Tommy's cheeks turned bright red. "I remember when my grandmother died, I felt so terrible. I hadn't even told anybody yet and I walked into the Youth Center to be greeted by Kim. Her wonderful smile shining and just by looking into her eyes, I knew that she knew. She told me it will probably always hurt, but one way to make the situation a little better is to think of the wonderful things my grandmother taught me and did with me. It worked too." Adam smiled. "When I was losing my green ranger powers. Kim was always there for me. I felt so depressed and lonely during those times, but no matter how bad it got Kim was there. I remember one day I was walking around in the park and Kim came up behind me. She said she had been looking all over for me and that she was worried. I feel bad saying this, but it made me feel good that she was worried about me. Kim then asked why I was out there by myself and I told her I was just thinking. The next thing she said helped me in a way I never thought someone could. She said 'Don't isolate yourself from the guys and me. Powers or not you are still a ranger and our friend. You won't fade into the background.' I said 'How do you know?' She said 'Because I won't let you.' That's the best thing she could have said. After hearing that I quickly wrapped my arms around her in tight hug and she returned it. Kim then said something that made me want to continue to fight Zedd and his evil no matter what happened. Kim told me that she loved me. It was the first time she said it and I said it back. We had finally said it to each other and it certainly wasn't the last time." Tommy smiled. "I think remembering all this helps. It has me feel better." Rocky replied. "Me too." Tommy agreed. Jason and Adam nodded in agreement. "I just wish I knew who did this to her." "The question is why would anybody do this to Kim?" Jason asked. "I hope Kim can explain everything." Adam answered as he heard screams come from outside. "What in the world?" Rocky asked as the four of them jumped up and ran over to the window. There outside of the window was a hoard of piranhas lead Rygog and a man with a black coat. "Oh rangers, why don't you come out an play?!?" Rygog called out. "Oh shit! They could blow our cover!" Rocky replied. "Rygog is going to get it and who the hell is that guy in the black coat?" Adam asked. "I don't know, but let's go." Tommy announced as Tanya, Kat and Justin came walking in. "What's going on out there?" Justin asked. "We've got trouble." Tommy answered. "Who is that with Rygog and his goons?" Tanya asked pointing to the guy in the black coat. "We'll find out later." Tommy answered. "Shift into Turbo!" "Wind Chaser, Turbo Power!" "Dune Star, Turbo Power!" "Mountain Blaster, Turbo Power!" "Desert Thunder, Turbo Power!" "Red Lightning, Turbo Power!" Tommy yelled as the rangers appeared in front of Rygog. "What do you want this time?!?" "We just want to have some fun." Rygog answered. "We know you type of fun you like Rygog." Tanya retorted getting into a defensive stance. "Let's get this over with." Tommy growled. "I agree. Piranha's attack!" Rygog commanded as the hoard of piranhas came running towards the rangers. "Split off." Tommy commanded as he dodged a piranha's kick. Adam flipped over two piranhas, followed by Justin. Kat and Tanya were back to back throwing piranha's left and right. Tommy punched a piranha hard in the face and made his way over to where Rygog and the man in the black coat stood. "Hello red ranger." Rygog sneered. "It's so nice to finally meet you Tommy. I've heard so much I about you." The man in the black coat smiled. Tommy observed the man. He had a black hat on and black sunglasses covered his eyes. "You seem to now who I am, but who are you?" Tommy questioned. "Just call me Spike." "So what do you two want?" Tommy asked. "You and maybe something or someone else. I believe she has brown hair, soft browns eyes and that pink ranger over there used to be her." Spike smiled. "You stay the hell away from Kim and if you want me, well here I am." Tommy growled as he pulled out his Turbo Lightning Sword. "Sounds good to me." Spike grinned wickedly as a shinny, silver sword appeared in his hands. The two men raised their swords and the sound the swords made as they clashed was deafening. Jason and Rocky looked out the hospital window watching the fight. "God I wish I could do something." Jason pounded his fist on the windowsill. "Me too man." Rocky agreed as heard screams from down the hall. Rocky and Jason took off and ran out of the waiting room. There were piranha's everywhere terrorizing the occupants of the hospital. "We've got to help these people." Jason said as he got into a defensive stance. "Let's do it." Rocky agreed as he also got into a defensive stance. Jason ran and grabbed a piranha off of one of the nurses. "Thank you." The nurse said faintly. "I need you to do something for me." Jason said and the nurse nodded her head. "Gather these people up and try to lead them out of here. My friend and I will take care of these things." "Okay." The nurse agreed nervously. The nurse ran off to gather the people. "Rocky we need to distract the piranha's away from the people." Jason called over. "Got it." Rocky replied. "Hey Jase, let's go get the rangers! They're in that room." Rocky yelled as he took off towards the waiting room. "Yeah. Come on piranhas. If you want the rangers they are in here." Jason announced as he too ran off towards the waiting room. The piranha's looked at each other and followed Jason and Rocky into the waiting room. The piranha's entered the waiting room. The door behind them quickly shut. Jason then appeared in front of the door and on the other side Rocky had closed the other door and put the couch in front of it. "Now let's end this." Jason growled as he and Rocky attacked the piranhas. Jason and Rocky kicked and punched; they would soon defeat their attackers. "Back off fish breath." Rocky said as he threw a piranha into two others. "See ya later. Ya!" Jason yelled as he kicked a piranha hard in the stomach. The piranha went flying back into the window, shattering it in the process and falling out of the crushed window. Jason spun around and noticed all the piranhas were out cold. "It felt good to do that." Rocky smiled. "You're telling me." Jason smiled back, but all of a sudden a bright red light came shining through the closed door. Jason and Rocky slowly turned around. "Something is coming through that door. This is not good." Rocky said as he got back into his defensive stance. "Oh shit. I wish I had my powers about now." Jason replied and Rocky nodded in agreement as the door blew off. Rocky and Jason quickly ducked and shielded themselves from the flying pieces of the door. Jason realized who it was and anger and hate began to rise up into him. "Divatox." "Why hello my child." Divatox grinned wickedly. "I am not your child you piece of trash." Jason retorted angrily. "I'm hurt. Oh and it's Rocky. Didn't a little kid get your powers?" Divatox asked. "Stuff it. What do you want?" Rocky asked. "I would like to check on my other child. I heard she was brutally attacked." Divatox answered innocently. "Bullshit. I won't let you even come a foot near Kim." Jason growled. "Really? What will you do without you precious powers?" Divatox argued. "I don't need my powers to defeat someone like you." Jason replied.
"We'll see about that!" Divatox yelled as a bolt of power came shooting from her hand.
"Oh crap!" Rocky yelled as he a Jason jumped out of the way. The bolt went and destroyed the door the lead to Kim's room.
"We can't let her get to Kim. Go to her room and barricade the door. I will try to stall them. You've got to the rangers attention." Jason whispered. "I can't just leave you here." Rocky replied.
"GO!" Jason commanded and Rocky got up and dodged more of Divatox's bolts as he made his way to Kim's room. Rocky ran in and quickly shut the door. He pushed two tables in front of it. He then went over at the still unconscious Kim.
"Don't worry Kim. They'll have to kill me first before I let hurt you." Rocky softly said. He ran over to window and threw it open. He looked over to where the rangers were fighting. He searched for Tommy and found him fighting the mysterious man in the black coat. "Damn."
Jason stood in front of Divatox. He was not about to let Divatox get to Kim. "Get out of my way." Divatox demanded.
"Make me." Jason growled.
"With pleasure." Divatox replied as she shot bolts of power at Jason. Jason quickly ducked and swept Divatox's legs from under her. Divatox crashed to the ground. "Oh you're going to get it!" Divatox yelled as she got up. Divatox shot quick shots of power and Jason could dodge them all. One hit him and he screamed in agony as he fell to the ground. "You're pathetic."
"I'm not beat yet." Jason growled as he shakily got up. His breathing was hard, his body ached, but he was not finished.
"You are starting to get on my nerves." Divatox replied as more power began to course through her.
Rocky heard Jason scream and knew that could not be good. (God I wish I could help Jase, but I've got to protect Kim. I really have got to get the rangers attention.) Rocky thought as he started to scream out to the rangers. "Guys! It's a distraction. Divatox is up here!" Rocky screamed hoping one of them would hear them.
Adam's turned around to voice of his friend. "Divatox is up there?!?"
"Adam! Get up here!" Rocky yelled back. Adam looked up to his friend and saw a red light come bursting through. Rocky ducked and screamed as a bolt of power hit him.
"Rocky! Oh god!" Adam said as he ran towards where Tommy was fighting Spike. "I have had enough of you." Adam said as he pulled out his turbo power cannon and shot it at Spike. Spike, surprised by the attack did not dodge it quick enough and was hit square in the chest. He flew back and landed with a thump.
"Thanks." Tommy said, also a little surprised by the attack.
"It was a whole distraction." Adam said a little out of breath.
"What?" Tommy asked confused.
"They're here to get Kim. Divatox is up there!" Adam answered as he pointed to the room and Tommy saw the red bolts of power.
"Oh my god." Tommy said faintly as he and Adam took of running.
"You'll never reach her time! She should have killed her, but somehow that bitch survived my attack." Spike yelled after them. Tommy and Adam stopped dead in their tracks.
"You did this to her!" Tommy replied outraged. He ran over and picked up Spike by his neck.
"She's a feisty little bitch too." Spike laughed.
"You bastard." Tommy growled.
"You know while you here Divatox could be finishing what I started." Spike replied. Tommy took a deep breath and through Spike hard to the ground.
"Watch that piece of shit." Tommy commanded Adam as he took off running towards Kim's room, hoping he wasn't too late.
"Don't move asshole." Adam commanded as he pointed his cannon at Spike.
"He's too late." Spike replied.
"Shut up!" Adam yelled.
"All Kim has is good body to play with." Spike laughed wickedly.
"I said shut up!" Adam growled.
Tommy made his way to the waiting room to see the entire unconscious piranhas and Jason in the hallway ahead of him lying on the floor. "Jase." Tommy called as he ran to his friend's side. There was cut on Jase's forehead and Jason looked up at Tommy.
"Rocky, Kim..." Jason said faintly as another scream came from Kim's room. Tommy quickly got up and ran to Kim's room to find Divatox hovering over the fallen Rocky.
"You and Jason aren't so tough without your powers huh?" Divaotx laughed.
"Bite me." Rocky snapped, but then noticed Tommy was behind Divatox. "I would love to see you someone with powers like Tommy." Rocky smiled.
"Why are you smiling? The pathetic ranger who thinks he can defeat anyone is fighting Spike, who also happens to be poor little Kimmie's attacker. There is no way Tommy can defeat Spike." Divatox replied.
"Then why the hell am I here?" Tommy retorted and a shocked Divatox spun around to meet Tommy's fist in her face. Divatox staggered back in pain.
"I get you for that." Divatox screamed.
"I don't think so." Tommy growled as he lifted Divatox by her neck and put her against the wall. "You're going to pay for what you did to Kim."
"Now wait Tommy, you're the good guy remember?" Divatox pleaded getting worried.
"I'm not dealing with you anymore. You have caused Kim too much pain and suffering." Tommy replied.
Adam continued to watch Spike and the other rangers had joined him after defeating the rest of the piranha's and Rygog. Adam was disgusted and revolted with trash that sat before him. "I know what your thinking green ranger. You're thinking how could someone commit such a horrible crime and live with himself. The truth is that I have no heart and I'm evil, but I have enough fun down here. I must go get my payment."
"You're not going anywhere." Adam retorted.
"That's where you're wrong. Be seeing you soon." Spike replied as he disappeared in a red light.
"What the hell? Where did he go?" Tanya asked.
"To his payment." Adam answered.
"What?" The three rangers said in unison.
"Come on." Adam commanded as he and the others went running into the hospital.
Spike appeared behind Tommy and pulled his sword out. He grabbed Tommy and held the sword to his throat. "This sword can penetrate you suit, so I suggest you don't move."
"Thank you Spike. It took you long enough." Divatox said as she rubbed her neck and made her way over to Kim's bed. "She looks so peaceful, but I'm afraid she must go."
"Noooo!" Tommy yelled as he tried to break free from Spike.
"Don't move or you're dead." Spike yelled.
Divatox took off Kim's oxygen mask and Kim's vital signs immediately began to drop. Rocky tried to move but his back was in agony. He hadn't even fully recovered yet and Divatox had struck him hard. He couldn't just sit back and watch Divatox kill Kim, but what could he do?
Out in the hallway Jason watched in horror, as Divatox was about to kill one of his best friends. "I won't let you." Jason said faintly as he slowly picked himself up. He saw where Tommy had dropped Saba and hoped he could use Saba to save their lives. He slowly crept behind Spike. "Go to hell bastard." Jason said as he stuck the Saba in Spikes back.
Spike dropped his sword and screamed in Agony. Tommy was free from Spike and turned around and kicked Spike to the ground. Tommy looked at Jason who leaned against the wall in his on pain with the now blood stained Saba. Jason handed Saba to Tommy and Tommy turned to face Divatox.
"Ahhh! You have ruined everything!" Divatox screamed.
"It's over Divatox." Tommy growled.
"It's not over by a long shot Tommy. I will return and next time I will have your head!" Divatox screamed as she and Spike vanished in a red light.
Jason dropped to his knees and Tommy was about to help him, but Jason pointed to Kimberly. Her vital sign's were still dropping and Tommy rushed over to put the oxygen mask back on. Tommy waited and Kim's vital sign's began to rise back to normal. Tommy unsnapped his helmet and laid it on the floor. He leaned down and kissed Kim on the forehead.
"You're okay now." Tommy whispered and then turned around to where Rocky lay on the floor. "You okay man?"
"I'll live." Rocky painfully replied.
"Jase?" Tommy called.
"Same here bro." Jason replied as Adam, Tanya, Kat and Justin came running in.
"I'm guessing we are too late?" Tanya asked jokingly.
"Is everybody okay." Tommy asked.
"Yeah, just a little winded I guess." Adam answered. "What happened?" Adam asked and Tommy, Jason and Rocky filled them in.
(2 hours later)
Jason quietly and slowly walked into Kim's room. He pulled a chair up to her bed and took her hands in his. "You have been through so much Kim. You are one of the strongest people I know. I know you'll make it through this. You have to. We miss you and I am worried about Tommy. He looks like he could snap. He really needs you Kim. He has needed you since you left for Florida. I know you wish he was here, but I don't even know where he is. It so hard for him, it so hard for all of us to see you like this. It breaks Tommy's heart to know that he didn't protect you from this harm. It hurts me too. I guess both us care for you a lot. I care for you as my sister and he cares for you as his love. I hope I'm making sense. I'll be right here and know Tommy will back soon. He just needs some air. A lot has happened to him today." Jason told the unconscious Kimberly softly as a nice breeze came blowing through the room.
Inside my skin there is this space
It twists and turns
It bleeds and aches
Inside my heart there's an empty room
It's waiting for lightning
It's waiting for you
And I am wanting
And I am needing you here
Inside the absence of fear
Outside of Kimberly's window a branch of a tree stuck so someone sitting on it could look into the room. Tommy sat their still morphed as the Red Lightning Turbo Ranger. Drops of rain began to slowly hit the top of Tommy's helmet and slide down the front. Inside Tommy was empty and still. He watched and listened as Jason talked to Kimberly. (You're right Jase. I've never been so scared in my life. I love Kim so much; there's no way I could bare to lose her. She's a part of me. I now no who did this to her and I want to rip his heart out, but then I would be as bad as he would. I would become what I fight against everyday. I am so confused and lost. God Kim, please come back to me.) Tommy pleaded as tiny tears began to fall down his face.
Muscle and sinew
Velvet and Stone
This vessel is haunted
It creaks and moans
My bones call to you
In their separate skin
I make myself translucent
To let you in, for
I am wanting
And I am needing you here
Inside the absence of fear
Jason's head slowly lowered itself as he fell into sweet sleep. Tommy teleported off the tree and appeared in front of the hospital doors, unmorphed. The rain drops suddenly got quicker and bigger. Tommy looked up to the sly and let the rain drops hit as to wash away his pain. He then entered the hospital, soaking wet. Everybody turn to stare and gawk as if Tommy was crazy.
"Are you okay?" A nurse asked, but Tommy didn't answer. He didn't care. Tommy just kept walking. He just wanted to reach Kim's room.
There is this hunger
This restlessness inside of me
And it knows that you're no stranger
You're my gravity
My hands will adore you through all darkness aim
They will lay you out in moonlight
And reinvent your name
His fear must be surpressed. His pain hidden. It was time for Tommy to be strong. It was time to prove to himself that he is truly strong and can go through anything. Tommy finally reached Kim's room, but stopped at her door. He took a deep breath and walked over to Kim's bed. He pulled up another chair and sat next to the bed. Tommy took Kim's hand in his and just looked at her in silence. He hadn't really noticed the bruises on her face and all the tubes coming out of her, he didn't want to. Tommy looked under the bruises and saw Kimberly's soft face. The cheeks that used to be so full of color. The nose that would crinkle when she smiled or laughed. The lips he used to kiss so passionately and gently. Finally the eyes, so soft, so beautiful. The eyes that used to look up at him lovingly. "Please come back to me Kim." Tommy whispered as he lay back in his chair and closed his eyes. Tommy was soon asleep.
For I am wanting you
And I am needing you hear
I need you near
Inside the absence of fear
Kim delicate hand began to slowly move in Tommy's strong hand. Finally Kim's eyes slowly opened. Her vision was blurred, but soon returned to normal. Kim looked around at her surroundings. She had no idea where she was or how she got there. She turned to her right and there sat Jason sound asleep. Then she felt something warm holding her left hand. She turned her head slowly and saw the sleeping Tommy. "Tommy?" Kim said so faintly, but Tommy did not hear her. Kim looked down on Tommy's hand that was enclosed around hers. She squeezed it gently hoping she had squeezed it hard enough that Tommy would feel it.
Tommy's head moved and his eyes slowly opened. Again he felt another squeeze and he looked down at Kimberly. Tommy quickly jumped up as he noticed that Kim's eyes were open and she was the one squeezing his hand.
"Kimberly!" Tommy yelled. Jason jumped out of his chair because of Tommy's scream.
"What is wrong with you?!?" Jason yelled back.
"Kim's awake!" Tommy answered.
"She is!" Jason replied looking down on the now awoken Kim.
"Stop yelling." Kim said faintly with a smile. Jason and Tommy stopped yelling and looked down at Kim.
"How do you feel?" Jason asked.
"Not very good. Everything hurts." Kim replied softly.
"Well I need something to drink. I'll be right back." Jason smiled as he kissed Kimberly on the forehead.
" I am so glad you are okay." Tommy smiled.
"Tommy, I'm a little confused. What happened?" Kimberly asked.
"You were attacked. The doctor told us you were stabbed five times and miraculously the stabs didn't permanently damage any of your internal organs. Your ankle is broken and your just bruised and battered, but should recover perfectly fine. You have gone through a couple hours of surgery and have been unconscious for about a day." Tommy explained and told Kim all about the piranhas and about Spike. Kim and Tommy were silent for a couple minutes. Finally Kim looked up at Tommy.
"Kim, what happened to you?" Tommy asked.
"Tommy..." Kim began
"Just tell me the truth. I am very confused right now and I think I deserve to know what happened." Tommy said in an irritated tone.
"You do deserve to know the truth." Kim replied as Tommy sat back down in the chair. Kim took Tommy's hand in hers. "I remember when you used to come behind me in the school hallways and hold my hand. I always felt safe once my hand was in yours. I wish I never had left that warmth. I destroyed what we shared by sending a stupid letter. It was my decision. It was my fault. I wasn't strong enough. I didn't stand up for myself. I know I hurt you and I don't know if you can ever forgive me. I also don't know if we can ever be together like we were before I left.
"I just don't get how you found someone else and all of sudden send a letter. You never called me or anything."
"I know, but if you let me I would like to explain."
"That's all I wanted you to do since you wrote the letter, since you came back."
"Well when I arrived in Florida everything at first was wonderful. It was like a dream come true, but something was missing. I was alone. I knew nobody there and I was in a new place. I missed everybody so much. I missed you a lot. At first we talked all the time and wrote each other almost everyday, but then the calls and letters didn't come as much as they did. I was getting so lonely. A new gymnast came and we became good friends. His name is Jon. I was getting close to him. One night we went to dinner and he brought me back to the dorm and kissed me."
"You kissed him! This was even before you sent the letter! You were fooling around with another guy while I was waiting and missing you in Angelgrove! Kim I would have waited for an eternity for you."
"Wait, Tommy...let me explain..."
"I've heard enough. I kept telling myself that it was good reason for dumping me. I wanted to think there was no other guy so bad, but I was wrong." "Tommy..."
"You think you could just come back and fix everything. You think we would get back together. What if I didn't want you back!" Tommy said, his words so biting. He noticed the tears starting to stream down Kim's face. "I thought I knew you Kimberly. I don't...not anymore. Just do me a favor...if you see my heart somewhere be free to continue to stomp on it." Tommy then rushed out of the room.
Kim just stared at the door. Tommy's words had been so harsh, so biting. She had told herself this might happen, but wasn't prepared for how much it would hurt. "Tommy, please come back." Kim pleaded softly as she began to profusely sob.
Tommy stormed down the hospital hall. He had to get out. Tommy needed some air. Jason was coming back to room as he saw Tommy storming down the hall.
"Where you going?" Jason asked.
"I'm out of here." Tommy growled.
"What happened?" Jason replied.
Jason looked at Tommy leave and then rushed to Kim's room. He found Kim lying in her bed sobbing. He went and sat on her bed and held her hand. "Kim..." Jason started.
"He...was so angry...I knew it..." Kim coughed. She was breathing hard and the equipment in her room started to beep.
"Kim, you have got to calm down." Jason replied and all of sudden Doctors and nurses came running in.
"I'm going to have to ask you to leave." One of the nurses said to Jason. He got off the bed and stood in the doorway. The nurses and Doctors crowded around Kimberly. The last thing Jason saw before they closed the door on him was Kim looking at him with tears falling down her cheeks as a doctor put an oxygen mask on her.
"God damnitt!!!!" Divatox yelled as she stomped into her submarine. "I'm personally sending all those rangers especially Tommy to hell!"
"Don't worry, we will get them next time." Rygog replied.
"Shut up you moron!" Divatox screamed as she put her hand to her face. "Oh my poor beautiful face." Divatox quickly turned around to face Spike. "And what do you have to say for yourself!"
"I'll get him next time." Spike mumbled.
"You bet you will! I gave you power! I gave you super strength! I also gave you the sword of amoral! That sword came from a fiery pit in hell and unless you destroy the rangers next time you will be the one in a fiery pit in hell!" Divatox yelled as she stormed off to her own chambers. Spike pulled out the sword of amoral and his reflection mirrored off of it.
"I'll destroy every single one of those rangers and Tommy will be the one to be sent to hell because that's where I'll drag his rotting carcass once I'm threw with him." Spike growled as he got up and slowly walked to his room. His powers needed to heal his back where Jason had stabbed him and then he would prepare for the upcoming fight to the finish.
Tommy walked down the streets of Angelgrove. He walked by children playing in the rain and people running to get out of the rain. Tommy did neither. He just plodded along, letting the rain fall upon him. (I shouldn't have blown up at Kim like that, but...just the thought of her kissing that guy made me so angry. I was just as far and I wasn't kissing another girl. I was missing her.) Tommy thought as he continued to walk. He stopped at the giggle of a teenage girl and her boyfriend running to get out of the rain. They reached shelter and Tommy watched as the boy leaned down and kissed his girlfriend. (I used to do that.) Tommy thought as a familiar beep went off.
Jason, who was asleep in the corner quickly, awoke to the change. "Wonderful." Jason mumbled. He walked over to Kim's bed and sat down next to her. Kim looked out the window again and noticed something strange.
"Jase?" Kim called removing her oxygen mask.
"Yeah?" Jason replied.
"Umm, why do we have no power, but the west wing right next to us does?" Kim asked as Jason looked out of the window. Jason jumped up and walked over to the door. He saw there were a couple of emergency lights out in the halls. He looked over to where a police officer and a nurse were talking.
"Yes, it is strange that we have no power and the west wing does. We are hooked up to the same power source." The nurse said to the officer.
"Shit." Jason said under his breath. His instincts told him that he needed to get Kim and himself out of here.
"Jason?" Kim called.
"We need to get out of here." Jason answered.
"What's going on?"
"Something is going to happen and we don't want to be here when it does."
"How do we get out? The police and doctors aren't going to let us waltz out of here. Plus I can't even move."
"I know, but we've got to think of something. I'm not weak or anything, but I don't have any powers to fight Divatox with and she has plenty to fight us with." Jason replied as he heard gunshots and screams.
"They're here." Kim said shakily as Jason quickly ran and locked the door. He then moved a chair and table in front of it. "Now what?"
Jason looked around for a second and his gaze fell upon the window and the tree that was right next to it. "Kim, I know you're not breathing or doing well right now, but if we don't get out of here both of us won't be breathing or feeling anything anymore."
"What do you propose we do?"
"We get out through the window."
"Onto that tree and then we climb down."
"Jase, we are on the ninth floor."
"I know, but we don't have any other options."
"Let's go." Kim replied as Jason carefully picked her up. "Can you put your arms around my neck?"
"I'll try." Kim held onto Jason as tight as she could and with the little strength she had. Jason then climbed into window. As he was doing this someone was at the door trying to get it open.
"You can't escape me!"
Jason stepped onto a branch and grabbed onto another. Kim closed her eyes as Jason began to climb down the tree. Just then the door burst down and Spike came rushing through. He looked around and saw the window was open. He ran over to it and saw Jason and Kimberly.
"I don't think so." Spike growled as he jumped onto the tree. "Pretty clever Jason!" Spike yelled. Jason looked up to see Spike standing above them.
(Got to move quickly Scott.) Jason thought as he continued to climb down.
Spike pulled out the Sword of Amoral and sliced a branch of the tree. The branch went flying down and barely missed Jason and Kimberly.
"That was too close." Jason responded.
"We are almost there." Kim replied as they continued to climb and more branches came falling. One of the branches hit the branch Jason was climbing on and it began to break. Jason reached for another branch as the one he was just standing broke and Kim screamed as the two were hanging from a branch.
"I've got you now!" Spike yelled victoriously. Jason tried to pull himself and Kim up, but he couldn't do it.
"Jason I can't hold on anymore."
"You've got to Kim."
"Kim, please try."
"I can't...!!" Kim said screamed as she lost hold around Jason's neck and began to fall towards the ground.
"Nooo!" Jason yelled as he watched Kim fall, but right as she was about to hit the ground she was caught by a warrior in red.
"Tommy?" Kim asked, but Tommy didn't respond. Kim could feel his cold stare upon her.
"Justin!" Tommy called as the blue ranger came running over. "Take Kim and don't let anything happen to her."
"Got it." Justin replied as Tommy handed Kim over to Justin.
Tommy then ran over to the tree and looked up at Jason barely hanging on. Spike jumped down onto the branch Jason was holding onto. "No where to go. If you jumped you would die, but you'll die anyway by my hand. If only you were still a ranger and had power you could get out of this, but you are too weak!"
"We'll see about that." Jason growled.
Since he didn't have Kim's weight on his back he was free to move. He swung himself to another branch and pushed himself up onto it. Spike jumped onto the branch and was face to face with Jason. "If I'm so weak then why would you need a sword to defeat me?" Jason asked. (I might have a chance if he doesn't have that sword.)
"Fine then." Spike said as the sword vanished from his hand. "We end this now."
"I agree." Jason replied as the two began to fight.
Jason was fast and strong, but so was Spike. Every attack Jason would give, Spike would block and counter it with his own attack and Jason would block that. (This is getting me nowhere.) Jason thought as he noticed the red ranger was sneaking up behind Spike. (God timing bro.) Jason then forced Spike backward with his attacks. Tommy was finally close enough and Jason mouthed one, two, three.
"Hey Spike!" Tommy called as a surprised Spike turned around to meet Tommy's fist. Jason then swept Spikes legs from under him and Spike went crashing down to the ground.
"It's time to get rid of this bastard." Jason said as he looked down at Spike who slowly got up.
"Come on." Tommy replied as he put his hand on Jason's shoulder and they teleported to the ground. The two were greeted by a hoard of piranhas ready to fight. Jason spotted the pink, green, and yellow rangers fighting and looked at Tommy.
"Take care of Spike." Jason commanded.
"I can't just leave you here with all of these." Tommy replied.
"Yes you can and yes you will. Now go." Jason commanded again.
"I thought I was leader." Tommy joked as he ran off towards Spike and Jason let out a little laugh as he began to fight the piranhas.
Justin and Kimberly were hidden behind some bushes but could still see the mass fighting that was going on. Kim spotted Tommy heading towards Spike. Spike's sword appeared in his hand and Tommy's sword in his hand. The two were at each other's throat again. "You need to help the other rangers and Jason." Kim told Justin.
"I was told to stay with you." Justin replied.
"I'm hidden and will be fine. Go help them." Kim retorted.
"I don't care what he said, go!" Kim commanded.
"All right." Justin gave in and ran towards the others.
(I won't be helpless. I became helpless when I went to Florida because there was no one there to help me, but it ends now.) Kim thought as she watched Tommy and Spike.
"We'll see about that." Tommy growled as he blocked Spike's sword with his own sword.
"Oh and by the way, did Kimmie every tell you why she dumped you?" Spike asked. "It was for me." Spike laughed as Tommy swung his sword hard at Spike. "Oh, I made you angry didn't I."
"Shut up and fight!" Tommy growled.
Spike needed to find something to distract Tommy and then he would kill him. He looked around as he blocked Tommy's sword and he spotted Kimberly. (The sweet Kimberly. I can use her to kill Tommy and then I'll kill her.) Spike thought as an evil grin spread across his face. "She's right over there Tommy. The one you love and the one that betrayed your love. She broke your heart and caused you pain; yet you continue to save her. You continue to care. Why?"
Tommy backed away from Spike. (Why?) Tommy questioned himself. (I don't know why.)
"Do you really think she still loves you?"
"I...I..." Tommy stumbled.
"How are you standing, walking? I know I broke something of yours." Spike replied.
"Yes, you broke my ankle, but not me." Kim retorted. "Tommy, I told you he kissed me, but that kiss meant absolutely nothing to me. It just reminded me how much I missed you. I told Spike I was sorry, but I was in love with you. He got so angry that he pushed me against the door and told me..."
"I told her she could only be with me. Kim kicked me off, but I countered her attack and slap her across the face and I beat her pretty bad that night. I told her that I would kill you if she didn't get rid of you..."
"So I did what he told me do and I wrote that damn letter. I tried to leave, but Spike watched me all the time and he continued to beat me. He said if I told the coach that I would really suffer. After awhile I didn't care anymore. My life was a living hell. I didn't care if he killed me as long as it was over. I told coach and they arrested Spike. He couldn't hurt me anymore. I left Florida and came home in hopes to get my life back. I thought it was over. I thought I left Spike back in Florida, but he showed up in the Youth Center after you teleported to Command Center. I had Bulk and Skull distract and took off. He chased me to the apartment and attacked me." Kim finished.
"You are mine. Your life belongs to me!" Spike screamed as he began to charge Tommy and Kim.
"She belongs to nobody, especially not you. You are going to pay for what you did." Tommy growled as swung his sword at Spike. Spike blocked it and swung his sword. A scream from Kimberly made Tommy spin around quickly. Divatox had a knife to Kim's neck.
"Drop your sword." Divatox commanded.
"No!" Kim yelled.
"Shut up or I will slice you open!" Divatox yelled back. Tommy looked at Kim and dropped his sword. Divatox threw Kim to the ground and faced Tommy. "I want to finish you myself. I need to repay you for damaging my face."
"That wasn't the deal Divatox!" Spike yelled angrily. "He's my payment."
"Shut up! The deal has changed." Divatox replied as she lunged for Tommy with her knife.
Kim watched as Tommy fought off Divatox. Spike stood there watching the two fight as well, thinking of what to do. (I want to kill him!) Spike thought as he raised his sword. Spike crept up behind Tommy.
(I don't think so.) Kim thought as she crawled over and picked up Tommy's sword. (It ends now.)
Spike raised his sword and was about to strike Tommy in the back when he felt a sharp pain coarse through his whole body. He looked down and saw the pointy end of a sword that was sticky out of his abdomen. Then more pain coerced through him as the sword was quickly pulled out of him. Spike erupted into a fury of coughs as he turned around to face his attacker. He shot back in shock because he was face to face with Kimberly who was holding the sword that was dipping with his blood.
"I can't believe you did it." Spike coughed and fell to one knee.
His sword dropped to the ground and he screamed out in agony. His scream had made everybody stop dead in their tracks. The rangers stopped fighting and looked over to where the scream had come from. Tommy flipped Divatox on her back and took her knife. Divatox got up and saw that Kimberly had stabbed her warrior, "No!" Divatox screamed and out of anger charged Kimberly.
Kim swung the sword and Divatox ran right into it. The sword went piercing through Divatox's stomach. Kim held on tightly to the sword and Divatox looked straight at her and then at the sword that had gone right through her. Divatox screamed out in agony. Kim realized what she had done and quickly let go of the sword and backed away. "This can't be happening! No puny human can defeat me!" Divatox screamed as she pulled Tommy's sword from her gut.
Spike noticed how everybody was preoccupied with Divatox so he pulled out a little knife from under his shirt. He could feel death fall upon him, but he would not go without taking someone with him. "Kim watch out!" Adam yelled, but before Spike could throw his knife a knife went flying into his back and he fell face first to the ground. Tommy had thrown Divatox's knife and finished Spike.
"My plans! All my plans ruined!" Divatox screamed as she fell onto her back. Everybody watched as Divatox's breaths became short and quick. Finally all life left her body and death took it over. Tommy walked over to Kim and wrapped his arms around her. "I'm sorry." Tommy whispered.
"I'm sorry too." Kim whispered back as she rested her head on Tommy's chest. She never thought Tommy's arms could feel so good.
"Noooooo! I won't be defeated by you!"
Tommy and Kim spun around to see a bloody Spike charging them, but was blow up by a big green blast. Tommy shielded Kim from the flying parts of Spike. Everybody then looked up and looked over at Adam who held his turbo cannon. "I've been wanting to do that for a long time." Adam pronounced. Smiles crept up on everybody's face. They hadn't smiled in a long time. "It's finally over." Kim sighed.
"You know you have a broken ankle and I have no idea how you stood on it." Tommy said as he picked her up.
"Hey I'm strong." Kim replied.
"It's hurts a lot huh?" Tommy asked.
"Yeah. It hurts a whole lot." Kim answered.
"Well let's get you back to the hospital." Tommy replied.
"Not there. It smells so bad." Kim moaned as Tommy laughed.
Saturday Night at the Youth Center"Jason where are you taking me and why did I dress up?" Kim asked.
"You'll see." Jason answered as they entered the Youth Center.
"Jason, why did you drag me here!" Kimberly moaned as Jason wheeled Kimberly in on her wheelchair.
"It's a dance Kim." Jason said as he parked Kim at a table and straightened his red polo shirt.
"Ummm...I'm in wheelchair, my ankle is broken...I don't dance. The word dance is not in my vocabulary at the moment, just like running, skipping, oh and walking." Kim replied as she adjusted her straps on her light pink dress and brushed her curly caramel hair out of her face.
"Don't be so sure about that You look absolutely stunning." Tommy said as he walked up to Kim.
A big smile appeared on Kim's face as she saw how handsome Tommy looked. His hair was tied back in a ponytail and he wore a white polo shirt and khaki pants.
"Tommy, I can't dance." Kim replied.
"Anything is possible Kim. I mean look what we have gone through and you are back in my life." Tommy smiled as he picked Kimberly up from her wheel chair.
"Tommy!" Kim giggled as Tommy carried her to the dance floor and a slow song started.
Look into my eyes
You will see what you mean to me
Search your heart, search your soul
When you find me, then you'll search no more
"I love this song." Kim smiled as Tommy twirled her around.
"I do to. You remember the first dance we went to?" Tommy asked.
"Of course! That was the best night of my life!" Kim answered.
"The best?" Tommy asked with mischievous smile and Kim giggled.
"Okay, one of the best." Kim giggled.
"Well before the dance I knew I liked you a whole lot. The first slow song they played was this song. This song made me fall in love with you."
"I fell in love with you too that night. I think that's another reason why I love this song." Kim said, but her smile faded.
Don't tell me it's not worth trying for
You can't tell me it's not worth dying for
You know it's true, everything I do I do it for you
"Can we really go back to where we left off? Can you forgive me so easily? Remember all you said in the hospital?"
"Kim, I need to apologize for what I said. I should not had blown up at you like that."
"But I know you meant it."
"Kim, that's how I felt before I knew the truth."
"I know I should have told you when I first came, but I was so scared. I just wanted you back."
"Well you got me."
Look into your heart, you will find
There's nothing there to hide
Take me as I am, take my life
I would give it all, I would sacrifice
Don't tell me it's not worth fighting for
I can't help it, there's nothing I want more
You know it's true. Everything I do I do it for you
"I can't believe how lucky I am. I haven't felt this happy in a long time. How did we get here?" Kim asked.
"I don't know, but I think rewards should be given." Tommy answered.
"I think I have one for you."
"And what would that be?"
"This." Kim answered as she leaned forward and met Tommy's lips. The kiss was soft, but then became very passionate and the two were lost in their love.
There is no love, like your love
And no other, could give me more love
There's nowhere, unless you're there
All the time, all the way
You can't tell me it's not worth trying for
I can't help it, there is nothing I want more
I would fight for you
Walk the wire for you, yeah I'd die for you
You know it's true
Everything I do
I do for you
"So I really missed everything?!?" Rocky asked.
"Yep." Adam answered as he wrapped his arms around Tanya while Kat and Justin laughed.
"Kim was awesome, but it was kinda gross. Adam made Spike blow up everywhere." Tanya told Rocky.
"I missed that too! Aww man." Rocky moaned.
"But you didn't miss the best part." Jason interjected as he stepped next to Rocky.
"What's the best part?" Rocky asked.
"Look over there." Jason answered. Rocky and the others looked over to the dance floor and immediately found Tommy and Kimberly kissing.
"Get a room!" Rocky shouted and everybody laughed.
Kim and Tommy pulled away from their kiss and laughed. Kat was angry that Kim had taken Tommy back, but knew there was nothing she could do, at least not for now. Jason, Rocky, Kat, Justin, Adam and Tanya came over and joined them.
"It's nice to see you two together again." Jason smiled.
"Yeah and no more of this, my body can't take it." Rocky laughed and a faster song began.
The summer air was heavy and sweet
You and I on a crowded street
There was music everywhere
I can see us there
In a happy little foreign town
Where the stars are upside down
A half a world away
Far far away
I remember you were laughing
We were so in love
We were so in love
And the band played, songs that we had never heard
Though we danced anyway
We never understood the words
We just sang
Oooh La la la la la la la
And we danced anyway
They say you can't go back
Well baby I don't believe that
Come along with me
Come on and dance with me
Well maybe if I hold you close
Baby we could just let go
Of these things that tie us down
We'll come back around.
You remember, we were laughing
We were so in love, so in love
And the band played, songs that we had never heard
Though we danced anyway
Never understood the words
We just sang, Ooooh
La la la la la la la la
And we danced anyway
"Can we just hold each like this forever?"
"That's my plan."
"Yeah." Kim smiled as she leaned closer and he lips touched Tommy's. The two lovers fell deeper into the kiss and soon deeper into each other.
You remember, we were laughing
We were so in love, we were so in love
And the band played, songs that we had never heard
Though we danced anyway
Never understood the words
We just sang, oooh
La la la la la la la la
And we danced anyway
And we danced anyway.
