Together again and Forever
Chapter 1: Kimberly Returns
Kimberly tried to hold back her tears as she got onto the plane back to Angel Grove. She was fidgeting with her hands and tried her best not to cry. Her now ex-boyfriend, Jake, finished beating her yet again. She tried her best not to run into him, but the last time he beat her, because she was trying to escape, he actually held a knife to her. She wished she was the Pink Ranger again so she could protect herself from him. She was wearing long sleeved shirts so she could hide her bruises and the small cuts from his nails. When the plane landed, she sighed in relief and got up and grabbed her carry-on bag before getting of the plane.
When she grabbed her suitcase, her bad day became worse, it started to rain. She didn't have an umbrella with her, so she had to get to Tommy's house on her own. He was the only person she could turn to since her other friends were either out of reach or busy. She grabbed a cab and went off towards Tommy's house.
Once she arrived a few blocks from his house, the driver dropped her off, since she was over her limit on money. She gave him the money she had left and began to walk to the house in tears.
Tommy was sitting in the den when there was a knock on the door. He got up to answer the door and his eyes widened in disbelief at the person standing before him. "Kimberly!" He gasped. He could tell that she has been crying and by her feet were her suitcase and her carry-on bag. "Come in," he insisted. Once he brought her bags inside, Kimberly came in and threw her arms around him, crying. She was soaked and cold, but he didn't mind. He was holding the girl he still loved ever so deeply. "Let's get you changed before you get sick," he murmured. Kimberly nodded and went upstairs. Her things were drenched so she had to wear a pair of his sweat pants and one of his shirts.
Once she was settled in the den, Tommy gave her a cup of coffee and sat across from her. "What's wrong, Kimberly?" He asked. Kimberly looked at him and he saw that the light in her eyes was gone.
"I don't want to talk about it right now," she replied.
She reached over to put her cup down when he grabbed her arm and lifted her sleeve up. He saw the bruises and the cuts. "What happened? Where did these come from?" He demanded. She pulled her arm away and felt hot tears well up in her eyes. "Let me see," he insisted. She slapped his hands away when he tried to see what else was on her body. "Kimberly, I know if you want me to help you, you have to let me see," he assured. She finally lay back on her stomach and winced as she felt him lift the shirt up, only to find more marks on her back. "Who did this?" He asked again. She sat up with tears in her eyes.
"My now ex-boyfriend did this. I know that I was a Ranger, but my strength wasn't as strong as it used to be you know," she replied.
Tears began to make their way down her cheeks. "Every time I tried to run from him, he would beat me until I was unconscious. The first time it happened, I still haven't seen her since," she whispered. Tommy lifted her head up.
"Who haven't you seen since the first time he's hurt you?" He asked.
"My daughter…I mean our daughter," she replied.
