Goes along with "Strange Nightmares" and "Witnessed Nightmares". Takes place in Zeo shortly after Jason's become the Gold Ranger, though not after a particular ep. Power Rangers belongs to Haim Saban, Fox Kids, and Disney. I only own the plot.
Jason tossed and turned.
'No. No, please. Don't," he murmured. Zedd laughed as he blasted Tommy with his staff. Jason tried to break loose from his bonds, but couldn't.
"Stop it! You've done enough!" Jason shouted. Tommy moaned as the electricity came again. Then, a large rack-like device appeared and Tommy was telekinetically thrown onto the apparatus and strapped down.
"No, no, no, no, no, no, no! Don't do this to him! Take me instead!" Jason shouted, increasing his struggle. A whip appeared in Zedd's hands and he advanced on the Green Ranger. Jason whimpered as the scene played out.
"No…please," he said out loud. In the Power Chamber, Billy was working late when he heard the soft cries through the viewing globe.
"Oh, Jase," he sighed, looking up from his work. He was having another one of his nightmares. When Jason had arrived back in Angel Grove, Zack and Trini had contacted him and informed him that their former leader was still experiencing his nightmares. However, there wasn't much that they could do since he refused to talk to Zordon about them.
"What is going on, Billy?" Zordon queried.
"Jason's having a nightmare," Billy answered. They watched as the Gold Ranger moaned and tossed and turned violently. Jason tried to will away the images, but couldn't. Tommy screamed as the whip tore into his flesh, emitting green sparks.
"STOP IT! YOU'RE KILLING HIM!" Jason shouted.
"If you had gotten the candle Red Ranger, young Tommy wouldn't be having this problem," Zedd sneered.
"Tommy, I'm sorry, Bro. I had to make a choice. We would've lost you," Jason said thickly.
"You did this. You could've stopped it. You could've gotten the candle. Why Jase?" Tommy wondered.
"No. No, Tommy. Don't---" Jason's voice trailed off.
"Say goodbye to Tommy forever, Red Ranger!" Then, with a cackle and to Jason's horror, Zedd's whip turned into a sword and he jammed it into the former Green ranger's chest.
"NOOOOOO! TOM-MMMMYYYYYYY!' Jason bolted up in a deep sweat to become aware of someone sitting next to him.
"Hey, it's okay. I'm right here," he heard Billy say.
"I was in the Power Chamber when you came up on the globe."
"He killed him. He killed him. It was my fault. I let him down." With pain-filled eyes, Billy held Jason as the one-time leader of the Rangers sobbed, wishing that there was something that he could say or do to make things better.
