"Grandpa?" A frightened voice
"Jenny!" A man's voice yelled back.
"Are you hurt?" Panic
was very evident in his voice.
"No, Grandpa! Are
The two individuals found each other, and the man made
sure the little girl was unhurt. Completely satisfied his granddaughter was
unhurt. He turned his attention to where they were!
They were in a wooded
area, maybe a forest, and as they walked, came to a lake.
The lake looked
very familiar as they got closer! It took the man a few minutes, but he knew
where they were. "Oh, man!"
They walked down the beach until they came to
a house with a white picket fence. "Come on, Jenny . . . " The man replied as he
pushed the gate latch up and opened the gate. "This is going to be home until I
can figure out just what!" He shook his head as he gently pushed his
ten-year-old granddaughter through the opening.
"Do you have any idea as
to where we are?" She asked.
"Yeah . . . I do!" He paused . . . "Let's
get some sleep, and worry about the rest of this tomorrow." He closed the gate,
and felt the security system activate automatically.
As usual, the house
was unlocked. "Grandpa, why would anyone leave their doors
"This house belongs to Paladar`, Jenny." He answered as the
door closed behind him.
"We're on EARTH?" The girl's voice rose,
"Yeah . . . we are . . . but I'm not sure what year we're in!"
"Is that lake, you've talked about?"
"Yes . . . !" He paused for
a minute or two . . . "Let's get some sleep, and discuss this tomorrow morning!"
"Ok . . . !" Jenny yawned as she spoke.
Her grandfather showed
her where the bathroom and towels were, and both were surprised to discover that
the beds were already made up for guests.
"Good night, grandpa."
The man stood staring out the
window wondering why Zordon wasn't answering his page.
"Zordon, do you
After watching the news on TV, and securing the
doors, he too went to bed.
Jenny woke up first, and seeing
her grandfather still sleeping she tiptoed into the kitchen. To her surprise,
the cabinets were full of canned goods, and the freezer part of the refrigerator
contained various types of frozen food products.
Jenny decided to eat
some dry cereal while watching the sun come up!
Around noon, he awoke to
the screams of his granddaughter!
"Jenny, what's wrong?" He grabbed her
by her shoulders.
"That lady." Jenny pointed out the window to a woman
frantically searching the water's edge. "Screamed for help, but no one seems to
be coming to help her."
The door opened when he turned the knob. . .
"Why wouldn't the door open for me?"
"Because it's not

The pair exited the house, and
jumped over the fence . . . both running to the woman.

"Where?" Rocky asked.
"Down there!" Mike said as he
pointed in the direction.
"Swimming isn't allowed down there. You know
that! The water is much too deep . . . Why?"
"Because I just saw a man

Adam Park grabbed the

Jenny came over the slight hill.
"Rocky . . . !"
Jenny said, half out of breath.
"Yes . . . " Rocky answered, as he and
the others met her half way.
"My grandfather told me to come down here
and get you . . . there's a child drowning near where we're staying . . . !"
Jenny told the six teenagers.
"Mike, watch the water . . . I mean it!"
Rocky yelled to the junior lifeguard.
"Will do!" Mike yelled back. "I'll
call the police . . . "

"Ok . . . I got her!"
The teen wasn't sure if what he
saw was human! The figure before him wore white, gold, and black scuba diving
gear, and his face was covered by a full diving-helmet.
"Are you ok?"
Rocky asked with concern.
"Yeah . . . I just wasn't expecting what else I
found down there." His voice wavered due to delayed shock from the other things
he had found while searching for the little girl.
Rocky, holding the
lifeless body of the little girl, began swimming to the shore followed by the

Her grandfather took from her

pebble and created an airway. With the airway secured, and the oxygen unit
running all they could do for now was wait!
"I've got a faint pulse!"
Adam said with a sigh of relief.
Several police officers, came running
down to the group.
"I won't know the full extent of her injuries until I

Stopping in his tracks, Rocky turned
around with a sick look on his face!

Thankfully, Jenny was able to get into the beach

alone so she offered to stay with her.

Monday morning dawned Kim wondered about "What was she going to do with her
granddaughter." She knocked on the bedroom door, and then waited.
Jenny was already up, and dressed when her grandmother entered the

"That can't be Tommy!"
Jenny walked over to the door and
placed her hand, palm down, on a mirror-like pad on the wall. There were two
soft beeps, and then a screen appeared next to the pad.
"He said he'd be
here around 7:30!"
Neither girl had ever seen the man at the door, so Kim
suggested that they don't answer the door.
But the strange man was very
persistent, and when he started banging on it, the only thing Kim could think of
doing was to call the police.
"The phones don't work!" Jenny said as she
watched the man. "I'm surprised the security system hasn't activated yet!" As
she spoke, the man received the shock of his life. It wasn't enough to kill him,
but just enough to scare him away, permanently!
"That was close!" Kim
said thankfully as the dazed man stumbled away.
"I know I'm out of milk,"
Jenny said, "And I don't think grandpa left any money here!" Her mind

She pushed the door
to the master bedroom open, and went to the dresser, while Kim stood at the door
Pulling the top drawer open, Jenny found what she was looking
for, a wallet and it had money in it!
"The first day we were here, we
went to that shopping place to brought some clothes." Counting the bills, Jenny
discovered that money wasn't going to be a problem, because the wallet contained
two hundred and fifty dollars. She pulled a twenty dollar bill out, and then put
the wallet back in the drawer.
"Grandpa, always carries travelers' checks
with him, and he had to get one cashed at that shopping place."

Before getting into the car, Jenny activated the
imager. "I better turn this thing on!"
Both Tommy and Kim
Kim mentioned to Tommy that some creep had attempted to break
into the house, which made him rather concerned.

easily by the many exhibits which made keeping track of her,

guide said as they entered the last room. "And we still don't know anything
about the items we found first!"

objects from the exhibit, and got a rude awakening!
"These two objects
have their own security system built it!"
Jenny walked over to the
exhibit, and glanced at it! "The coins and the morphers!"

started to say.
"Where are the new things you found?" Jenny said looking
around the room.
"They're over there." The guide replied as she pointed
in they're direction.
Sitting on the table was the right arm and the head
of Alpha 5!
"Alpha 5!" Jenny gasped in horror. "Where were these things

crossed the room with surprising speed.

just outside of town.

Jenny pointed to a section of the map, "Stone Canyon was right

"Something hit this area really hard," Tommy said noticing a crate
size hole uncommon to the area.
"But what?" Adam said
After carrying the piece of Alpha 5 back, Jenny said to the
students, "I know most of you aren't going to like taking orders from a kid, but
it's important that we find the remaining parts."
While some of the
students grumbled at the thought, Tommy, Rocky, Adam, Billy, Kim, and Aisha
walked over to the museum truck, and removed some shovels and work gloves from
one of the compartments.
Soon, other students followed, and within a
matter of minutes the entire senior class was digging. What started out as a
boring field trip to the museum turned into an exciting adventure!
day wore on, other pieces of Alpha 5 were found, and in addition, several pieces
of what had been a building was also found!
Around one in the afternoon,
the cater's truck which had been hired to provide lunch at the museum arrived,
and a lunch break was called.

Core Command Center.
"We located you when you activated the

sitting around the dining room table talking, when suddenly, a small white, gold
and black bird appeared chattering wildly!
"I think someone's hungry?"
Tommy said as the bird landed on his shoulder, and grabbed a piece of his hair
and pulled it.
"Ok, Ru . . . There's some oranges over on
the counter. . Go get one!"
The little bird flew over to the counter,
picked up one of the oranges, and then flew back to Tommy's shoulder letting the
orange fall into his lap!
While they continued to talk, he peeled the
orange and fed the rather upset bird.
Around ten o'clock, Jenny started
yawning, and asked to be excused from the table.
Jenny washed her face,
brushed her teeth, and then said her prayers. "Lord, please help me, and give me
the strength to face what I know is coming."
She paused to dab her eyes
which were filled with tears.
"Please also let my grandfather find me
before all heck breaks loose . . . Amen."
She climbed into bed unaware
that her prayers had been overheard by six teens standing quietly outside the
closed bedroom door.
The teens cleaned up the dinner dishes, and the
