A/N: the last chapter and this one were brought to you by my wife's surgery. It's the first time in a long while that I have had the time to type the chapters into the computer.


Time: July 31, 2002

A Familer six note tune sounded in the command center.

Trini puzzled as she answered. "Hello"

There was a pause, and then a female voice said "Is Henry there?"

"Just a moment." Walking to the other side of the room Trini told a pair of legs that were sticking out from under a consol "There is a call for you."

"Frak. Ouch. Could you relay it to my communicator?"

"Sure." Walking back to the other consol she pressed some buttons. "Go ahead."


"I thought you would be calling me sooner or later Taylor."

"How did you know?"

"Your Zord told me. Have you told Eric?"

There was a silence for awhile. "How do you know Eric is the father?"

"I keep tabs on all the rangers both past and present. And you haven't been seeing anyone else besides him. So back to the question, have you?"


"You're going to have to soon. He is going to start noticing then your belly starts getting bigger."

"Not if it doesn't."

I was awhile before he spoke again. "That is a choice. It's just not one I would recommend. Regardless you need to tell Eric. Talk with him. Get his input before you make a decision."

"What do you think I should do?"

"I can't tell you what to do. I can just give you advice and some observations. I think you should keep the child. I think you will make a good parent, as would Eric if you let him."

"Thank you."

"For What?"

"Talking to me. It helped. Bye."

Sliding out from under the consol, Henry found Trini standing above him looking down at him with her arms crossed. "Who was that?"

"Taylor Earhart. One of the Wild Force rangers."

Both stayed where they were. Trini staring down at him and Henry staring up at her for several minutes. "Trini, if I stay here much longer I'm going to be able to figure out what type of underwear your wearing." Henry finally said. Trini blushed, helped him up and headed back to where she had been working before. Halfway there she stopped, turned her head to look at Henry and asked "What makes you think that I am wearing any?" with a raised eyebrow. With a shocked look on his face he watched her continue on to where she was going. He then noticed that the view screen had been activated and Dulcea was looking at him with a small smile.

"Greetings Henry. Have you made your choices?"

"Yes I have."

"Excellent. Gather them together and I will call back in ten minutes."

As her imaged faded, Henry turned to Trini. "I'm going to need the Command Center for the rest of the day."

Walking up to him, Trini kissed on the check. "Good luck." She said before disappearing in a streak of yellow light.

Henry went to one of the consoles and began to locate and lock onto the new rangers. "One. Two and three. Together, big surprise. Four and five. And six." Double checking the settings he pushed the teleport button. Six streaks of light appeared. Red, pink, yellow, blue, green, and another blue. As the streaks of light turned into people, Henry said "Welcome to the Power Ranger Command Center. I have something to ask you all to do.

A/N: don't you just love cliff hangers?
