Story: Just a Little Bit of Fate
Chapter 7: Feelings…
Season(s): (same as always:D)
Tommy and the teens were to school, after a long weekend of helping Hayley cleaning up. Kimberly's friends, Alyssa and Johnny were leaving that evening, and they were at Hayley's with Hayley, Jason, Derek and Kimberly.
Kimberly... Tommy thought to himself. He still couldn't believe that she had come back, to him. It was like a dream and he was waiting to wake up. But the weekend had past and every morning she was still there. In his arms, in the flesh. Actually if it had been a dream, he wished he would never wake up.
But he knew it was happening. And her friends, there was no way his imagination could have made them up. But they have given him an insight into her past, a past when he thought he had lost Kimberly forever. And now that he had her back, he swore, he was going to keep it that way.
"Earth to Dr. O," Kira said waving a hand in front of his face.
"Hellooooo," Ethan said to him as well.
Tommy jump out of his daze, "Sorry guys, what's up?"
"Nothing," Conner said with a shrug.
Kira sighed looking at him and rolling her eyes, "Have you heard from Hayley or Kim? We were wondering how Hayley's was coming."
"Not yet. I think I'm going to shoot over there for lunch if you guys want to come," Tommy told them.
"Really?" Kira said excited.
"Cool, were in," Conner smiled.
"Alright well get ready we'll leave soon," Tommy said to them.
"Dr. O--," Kira started seriously, and Tommy looked at her with concern, "we wanted to talk to you, about the attack the other night."
As the words came out her mouth she could start to see the tension in Tommy's face.
"I mean, it just, it came out of no where," Conner offered.
"Yeah, and then the rest of the weekend, nothing," Ethan said.
"We've just been talking and we can't help but think, something bad is about to happen," Kira finished.
Tommy looked at these teens, the three rangers that he trusted. "I know guys, but don't worry. Everything will be okay," he said simple, not even believing it himself.
He couldn't sleep last night he had been up all night tossing and turning thinking about what was going to happen. About losing Kim, or the rangers, and not being able to stop it. He knew something bad was coming. But he couldn't figure out what.
"Okay Dr. O, if you say so," Ethan said after looking at his friends.
"I do. Now let's get going," he said to the three.
"Dude this place is looking great," Jason said to the group.
"Yeah, really amazing!" Kimberly agreed looking around.
Hayley smiled, "I agree! Thank you guys so much for all your help. I truly don't know what I would have done without you all."
Kimberly gave her a hug, "aww don't worry! That's what friends are for!" she smiled.
"Yeah, we're glad to help," Jason said to her.
Alyssa and Johnny walked in the room.
"So, I just talked to Daddy," Alyssa started, "and he said, that he is going to send you a couple new flat screen tv's," she smiled.
"Seriously?" Hayley said.
"That's great!" Jason smiled.
"Do you think he could get me one too?" Derek winked.
Alyssa rolled her eyes, ignoring him, "I know how exciting!"
"Wow! Thank you so much Alyssa," Hayley said to her.
"Not a problem, it's my job," she shrugged.
"You are truly a miracle worker," Hayley said to her.
"You going to give her a big head," Johnny joked.
"Too late," Derek teased. Everyone laughed at both comments.
Before Alyssa could reply, Tommy and the teens walked in.
"Hey guys," he said to everyone.
"Hi!" Kimberly said with a smiled, as he walked over and hugged and kissed her.
"This lovey doveyness is something I am not particularly going to miss," Alyssa Joked. Everyone smiled and Tommy put his arm around Kim.
"So what's for lunch?" Conner ask almost obvious to the other conversation going on, "I'm staving."
Kira rolled her eyes at him.
"Oh I order some pizza," Hayley said, "it should be here any minute."
"I love pizza," Ethan said, staring off into space.
As if on cue a knock came at the door, and a man stood there hold a stack of pizzas in his hand.
"Perfect," Hayley smiled and went to get the door.
Everyone ate and talked. Tommy finally announced that he had to get himself and the teens back to school to finish up the day. After moans and groans from the teens, they said their goodbyes to Alyssa and Johnny who were getting ready to leave. And were off to school.
"I think I'm gonna miss this place," Alyssa said putting her bag into her car.
"Yeah, me too," Johnny said closing the door.
The two walked into Hayley's to say goodbye to their friends.
"Getting ready to go?" Kim asked looking up from the table she was cleaning.
"Yeah," Alyssa said kind of softly.
"Don't worry, we'll see you soon," Derek said with a smile.
"We'll make sure of it," Jason smiled walking over to them.
"Yeah you guys have to come back for the new and improved Hayley's Cyberspace re-opening!" Hayley said giving them both hugs. "I insist!"
Everyone smiled, gave hugs and said their goodbyes.
Back at Reefside High…
Kira, Conner and Ethan were walking down the hall together.
"Have you guys seen Trent lately?" Kira asked.
"Nope," Conner said with a shrug.
"Me either," Ethan told her, "I usually see him at Hayley's but since her place has been closed, I haven't seen him in a while."
"Why what's up?" Conner asked her.
"Oh no reason," Kira said, "I was just wondering, I just thought it was weird I haven't seen him in a while."
"We'll there's been a lot going on," Ethan said.
"Yeah with Hayley's and Dr. O, and his friends coming into town," Conner stated.
"I guess you guys are right," she shrugged. "I don't know I just have this feeling like I'm missing something or like--."
"Something really terrible is about to happen," Conner finished for her.
"Yeah," she said looking up at him.
"Me too," both boys said in unison.
"That can't be good," she said biting her lip.
"You know Kim, I've been thinking," Jason started.
"Uh oh, that can't good," she joked.
"What's up Jase?" She asked him with concern in her voice.
"I don't really know, I just have this feeling,"
"That something terrible is going to happen," he whispered to her.
"Terrible? To whom?" she asked and he just looked at her. "Me?"
"Don't worry about me, I'll be fine," she said with a smile. "Nothing bad is going to happen. You're just paranoid. So is Tommy. After that fight the other night is like all his can think about. But you know what."
He looked at her.
"I'm going to be fine," she said, "you're going to be fine. We are all going to be just fine." She smiled at him, "Now let's get back to work," she said as she patted him in the chest.
She felt something awful was going to happened too, but why have everyone worry. If everything seemed fine, then it was going to be fine. Positive thinking. She learned in gymnastic, and it would help her get through this too.
"Hey we going to run to the store do you guys need anything?" Derek yelled to Jason and Kim, breaking her out of her daze.
"Nope," she smiled at him. And he gave her a look.
"You okay?" He asked, seriously, which was very out of character for him.
"Perfect," she smiled brightly.
"Riiiight," he said, "don't worry my precious, I'll figure out what in that pretty little head of yours. I always do."
She shook her head and got back to cleaning, "Have fun." And with that she tried to get thoughts and nightmares out of her head. Positive Thinking Kimberly, Positive Thinking, she thought to herself.
Hours later… At Tommy's…
"I am stuffed," Jason said rubbing his stomach.
"Wow, that's really attractive," Kimberly rolled her eyes at him jokingly.
"Who knew you cook so well Loverboy," Derek smiled shoving another fork full of mashed potatoes into his mouth.
Tommy smiled, "I'm glad you all liked it."
"Liked it? After that meal I will marry you!" Derek teased.
"I don't think so," Kimberly smiled at him and pulled Tommy down to kiss him, "He's mine."
"Hey, whatever the lady says," Tommy smiled and put his hands on her shoulders. "So what should we do tonight guys?"
"Well man, since you cooked we will clean up," Jason said.
"Yeah, then we should go out some where fun!" Derek said excitedly.
"But where?" Kim asked.
"We can drive around, I'm sure we'll find some place," Tommy smiled.
"Just no dinosaur museums or anything," Derek said to him joking, well kind of.
Everyone laughed, "You got it man," Tommy said to him.
They started to clean up, and then all went upstairs to shower and get ready.
Kimberly got out of Tommy's shower and opened the door, almost running into Tommy.
"I feel like I've been here before," Kimberly said smiling at him.
"I'd be fine with this dejavu everyday," he smiled and leaned down to kiss her.
"mmm," she smiled, "Me too," and kissed him again."
Minutes later a knock came at the door.
"I know what you guys are doing there," Derek's voice came through, "Tisk tisk."
Both laughed, breaking their kiss.
"I suppose I better go get dressed now," Kim said.
"I guess I should finish," Tommy said looking down at his jeans and shirtless body.
"Or you could stay like that," Kimberly smiled, "I mean I wouldn't protest, and I'm sure Derek wouldn't either," she teasted.
"Oh Ms. Hart haven't we become such a jokester," he ruffled her hair. She smiled at him, stood on her tippy toes and kissed him hard the lips.
"Yes Mr. Oliver we are," said smiled and walked out the door.
"Actually, I am starting to prefer Loverboy," he smiled at her.
She shook her head. As they heard Derek tease, "I hearddd that Loverboy…"
Everyone smiled and went into their rooms.
Kimberly looked at herself in the mirror, after so many years of missing Tommy it seemed like everything was finally falling into place… Everything was perfect, and falling flawlessly into place. She finally had it all.
Her cuts and bruises were beginning to heal and to not hurt as much, her best friends were with her, and she was finally back with Tommy. Everything was perfect.
She knew that Tommy would be honest with her, and that it took about 4 minutes to get him out of that suit, something that she planned to work on. She smiled to herself.
But in the back of her mind, she couldn't help but feel that something bad was going to happen… She sighed and pulled on her jeans, laced through a black belt, and pulled a pink V-shirt over her head.
And as she put on her make up she kept saying to herself, everything is going to be okay. Everyone will be fine. But she knew one thing for sure… you can't lie to yourself.
It was official Tommy Oliver was now absolutely and completely happy. He looked at himself in the mirror and turned the volume up on his radio, as the song "someone like you" streamed from the speakers. "I've been searching a long time now… for someone exactly like you…I've been traveling all around… waiting for you to come through… someone like you… to make it all worth wild… someone to keep me satisfied… someone exactly like you…"
He finally was back with the one person he truly loved. Everything had been resolved and settled. His best friend was there, Kimberly was there, and Derek was really starting to grow on him.
Plus he had Hayley and the teens, and Hayley's place was really coming together, thanks to Jason, Kim and the help from her friends. He finally had it all.
Everything seemed to be falling perfectly into place. Yet, he still couldn't get the thought of the nightmares he'd been having, the talk he had with the teens this morning, and these feeling he kept having out of his mind. The feeling that something bad was going to happen.
He saw it when he looked into everyone faces, but none of them seemed to talk about. They had all been feeling something, something bad. But none of them seem to be able to put their finger on it.
Tommy sighed and finished putting gel in his hair. Everything was going to be fine he thought to himself… everyone will be okay… But he knew one thing for sure… you can't lie to yourself...
