A/N: This drabble and the drabble before it are not connected to the previous drabbles. I am so happy I got a review like right after the chapter was posted. I did a little happy dance. I am happy people liked it. Please keep reviewing. I do love reviews. And sorry I haven't kept up with this drabble series. Other fandoms have been calling to me, plus it seems that Mike and Emily will end up together on the show, which kind of killed it for me for awhile. However, I will be working on this more often. I promised myself I would finish this.
Chapter Six: Truth
Jayden was in shock and he also felt blindsided. Yeah that would be the best way to describe how he was feeling. Like he had been hit by a car without all the injuries.
"Dayu could be lying," Kevin finally broke the silence that plagued the rangers since Dayu had dropped that bombshell. Jayden didn't think she was lying, not by the way Emily had acted before she ran off. "She could just be trying to turn us against each other."
"Well than why would she tell us that Emily loved him?" Mike asked Kevin. "Wouldn't she say something like Emily thinks your a crappy leader?"
"We shouldn't be standing around here like this," Mia finally spoke up after minutes of silence."Who cares why Dayu said what she said, we need to find Emily!"
Mia's voice cut through Jayden's daze and he had to admit she was right. She seemed to be the only one who had her head on straight at the moment.
"Mia's right," Jayden spoke softly. "It's going to be dark soon we should be out looking for her."
"Are we going to search for her together?" Mike asked as he shoved his hands into the pockets of his blue jeans.
"No we will have to separate," Jayden replied. Mike gave him a strange look, but he just ignored it. "Let's go find Emily." He started to walk in one direction and the others took their own paths. He had forgotten to tell the others to page him if they found her. Jayden figured they probably would if they did find her. They didn't reminded of something so small like that every time they split up.
He felt like he had been walking forever as he ventured deeper and deeper into the forest. The sun was starting to set and he was beginning to set. He was really worried about her. However, he pushed the feeling down when he saw her. It had to be her or else that was another blonde girl.
Emily wiped the last tear from her eyes and forced the ones that were threatening to fall away. She figured she should find the others. It was getting dark out and she could just say Dayu was lying. However, Emily wasn't a really good liar.
Suddenly, she heard a twig snap and it caused her to jump. She looked around and saw someone coming up to her. It looked like a guy, so the ruled out Mia.
She really hoped it was Kevin or Mike.
"Emily." Jayden's voice called out to her as he recognized her. He came towards her as Emily pushed herself off the ground and into a standing position. She knew he would ask her about what Dayu said and she was happy that the others weren't around to hear the conversation.
"Are you okay?" He asked as he threw his arms around her. Emily wrapped her arms around him as he squeezed her tighter. She rested her head on his chest. Her blonde locks fell across her face, blocking her face from his view.
"Why did you run off like that?" She pulled away from him and turned her back on him. "Dayu was telling the truth wasn't she?"
Emily just nodded her head in response to Jayden's question.
"Why didn't you tell me?" He asked as he grabbed her and turned her to face him. His blue eyes were filled with an emotion Emily couldn't quite put her finger on. Emily began to get chilly as the sun set lower in the sky.
"Because you know what kind of risk there would be if we did get together?" She questioned him. She had to put the team before her own feelings. What if they broke up? Or one of them got hurt because of the other. Emily wouldn't be able to live with herself if the team dynamic changed. She knew Jayden wouldn't be able to either.
"You're right," He sighed and let go of her arms. A frown fell across his features and he turned away from her for a second. "To Hell with the risks we can make this work!" It wasn't so much the excited tone of Jayden's voice that scared her, but the fact he seemed very unlike himself at the moment.
"Jayden what about all the stuff that could happen?" He took her hands in his and smiled down at her.
"Emily, stop thinking about everything that could go wrong," He leaned in closer to her. "When the thought of being with each other feels so right."
He kissed her gently and she responded in kind. She pulled away a few seconds later and smiled up at him. "When you're right, you're right," She grabbed his hand and began to drag him through the forest. "Let's go find the others I am starting to get cold.
"Here's my jacket." He placed it on her shoulders and she slid it on the rest of the way.
With that done, they ran through the forest in search of their friends as the sun set in the sky.
