Z was glad to finally be home. After her friends picked her up from the city and brought her back to base, she was immediately bombarded with questions. Are you okay? Where were you? How did you get back? What happened? Those were all the questions Z received from her friends and she was more than happy to inform everyone about the alternate dimension she traveled to. She told them about what happened, from the alternate Bridge causing her counterpart and Syd's deaths, to the new Rangers added to the team. However, she left out the part about Sky and Bridge being a couple. Z felt that was something she would inform her friends at a much later time.
And it was now a later time. It was evening and the Rangers were sitting in the center of the Common Room, dressed in their pajamas.
"I still can't believe that there's an alternate universe to our own. That's so incredible!" Darian commented.
"I can't believe my counterpart and yours are dead in that universe. That's so...depressing," said Syd twirling a strand of her hair.
"Yeah, that was a real shocker for me too," Z responded.
"Hey, don't forget the fact that my counterpart caused their deaths. And the fact that my counterpart is in some facility being monitored," Bridge added with a pout.
"That's rough, man." Sky patted Bridge on the back, causing the Blue Ranger to pout even more.
"So, what was my counterpart like? And Sky's?" Darian asked.
"Hmm, pretty much the same. Except that you're blue," Z answered.
"Tell us a little bit about the those other Rangers you met," Syd brought up.
"Well, Adrian is the Green Ranger, Ashlee is the Yellow Ranger, and Samantha is the Pink Ranger. Adrian is pretty cool, Ashlee reminds me a bit of, well, myself, and Samantha reminded me of you," Z replied.
"Cool. Sounds like I would've gotten along well with Samantha," Syd remarked.
"Hey, chances are, we might find their counterparts here in our world," Z suggested.
"That's true!" Syd had a huge smile on her face and clasped her hands. "We should totally try to find them! You remember what they look like, right?"
"Awesome." Syd started bouncing in her seat.
"So, Z, is that all you learned about in this alternate world?" Sky asked her.
"Not really. There's one more thing I didn't mention earlier to Cruger and Kat," Z admitted.
"Oh? What is it?" Syd stopped her bouncing and leant forward towards Z.
"Well, the Sky and Bridge of that world…" Z paused and took a breath. "Are a couple."
Sky and Bridge's eyes widened and they both turned to look at each other. Darian and Syd looked over at the two and then two each other, their mouths slowly forming into smirks. Z observed their reactions and gave a light chuckle. Syd turned to her.
"Really? They're a couple?" Syd glanced over to Sky and Bridge, the two of them slowly shifting away from each other.
"Yeah. That world's Sky told me he and Bridge got together after defeating Bork," Z informed.
"Wow," was all Darian said.
Sky cleared his throat. "Are...you sure about that?"
Z smirked. "Yes. I saw pictures. One of them had the two kissing."
Sky blushed and he turned away while Bridge twiddled his fingers. Darian and Syd, on the other hand, had their smirks still plastered onto their faces.
"The other Sky told me that even though he and Bridge are now separated, he still considers them together. They way that Sky talked about Bridge, I could tell that he genuinely loves and cares for Bridge. It broke my heart to hear that the two were separated over what happened in their world." Z's smirk was replaced a small smile. "Before I left, I told the other Sky I hoped that he would be reunited with Bridge again, soon."
"Aww, that's so romantic," Syd gushed. "And also tragic, but mostly romantic."
"Say, Sky, do you have feelings for Bridge?" Darian asked wiggling his eyebrows.
"It's time for bed guys," Sky declared and stood up from the couch.
"Mhm, I see how it is." Darian got up and smirked at Sky and Bridge before walking over to the room he shared with the Blue Ranger and entered it.
"Yeah, I could use a good night's rest after everything. Come on, Syd." Z got up and walked over to her room she shared with Syd. The Pink Ranger followed after and entered her room, but not before turning around and making kissy faces towards Sky and Bridge.
Sky and Bridge were left there by themselves, with Sky still standing and Bridge still sitting on the couch. The two didn't look at each other for a few minutes, the two of them feeling awkward in each other's presence. Sky was kicking the floor while Bridge continued twiddling his fingers.
"So, uh," Sky spoke up. "I guess I'll be heading to bed now," he declared and began to walk towards his room.
"Sky?" The Red Ranger stopped and turned around to face Bridge, who was now standing.
"Yes?" Sky asked, a drop of sweat rolling down the side of his face.
"Well, uh, I was wondering…" Bridge stopped and closed his mouth before speaking again. "Nevermind, it's nothing. Good night, Sky," Bridge told him.
"Good night, Bridge." Sky turned back around and walked into his room, leaving Bridge by himself. Bridge stood there for a few minutes, staring at Sky's door. A small smile began to form on Bridge's face.
Maybe. Just maybe.
Well, there you have it, the end of Discovery. I know, it seems a bit rushed, I'm sorry but I didn't know how else to end this chapter/ending. Anyhoo, the sequel will be out some time so keep an eye out for it. The sequel will now focus on Sky and Bridge and the two of them reevaluating their relationship. Thank you everyone who favorited and followed and reviewed this story and I hope you all return for the sequel! Until next time!
