Life in Reefside


Chapter1 The Real Reason

Tommy and Kimberly Oliver walked into their new home in Reefside, California with Billy and Trini Cranston. The two had gotten married in Hawaii during the summer. Kim's eyes immediately fixed on an opened door that led to the basement. She began to walk towards it when Tommy took a hold of her free hand.

"Um, Kim, I wouldn't do that," Tommy said.

"And why not?" she asked. Kim entered the room, baby Maggie in her arms. "Thomas Oliver, what in the world is this?"

Tommy ran in after his wife into a lab.

"You didn't tell her?" Billy asked.

Trini looked over at Billy.

"Are you telling me Kim doesn't know about the lab?" Trini asked.

"Honey, let me explain," Tommy said.

"You better, fast," Kim replied.

"Remember when the guys and I went camping in the woods this past summer?" Tommy asked.

"Yeah, what about it?" Kim questioned.

"Kim, we found three dino gems, a new team of Power Rangers," Tommy said.

"How could you keep something like this from me? So why are we here?" Kim asked.

"I did get offered a job at the high school, but…" Tommy began.

"But! I don't like but," Kim said.

Tommy did not like seeing his wife angry. Neither did anyone else.

"But… we're here to keep an eye on the new Rangers, their mentors," he said.

"This is unbelievable," Kim sighed.

Trini's face became pale.

"Trini are you alright?" Kim asked.

"Trini, honey," Billy said

"You guys, I don't…" she began.

Trini fell into Billy's arms.

"Trini," Billy gasped.

"Let's get her to a hospital," Tommy said.


Billy, Tommy, and Kim sat in the waiting room, waiting for news from the doctor about Trini.

"Damn it, I wish we had some news about Trini already. All this waiting is killing me," Billy sighed.

Kim put her free hand on Billy's shoulder.

"She's going it be fine, Billy," she assured him. "And if I'm right about what is wrong, you're going to be thrilled."

Billy had no idea what Kim meant by her statement.

"Yeah man, she'll be all right," Tommy said.

The doctor came out of the room and Billy got up out of his seat.

"Mr. Cranston, has your wife been having dizzy spells lately?" he asked.

Kim and Tommy gave Billy a puzzled look.

"Sometimes, but we thought it was nothing. Is everything all right?" Billy asked.

"Well, Mr. Cranston, it seems like your wife is having a baby," the doctor said.

Billy's face lit up with joy. Kim had had a gut feeling that Trini was having a baby.

"Are you serious?" Billy asked.

"Congratulations, Mr. Cranston," the doctor smiled.

"May we see her?" Billy asked.

"I see no problem in that," the doctor said.

As Tommy, Kim, and Billy entered the room, Trini opened her eyes.

"Oh hey you guys," she said.

"How are you feeling girl?" Kim asked.

"Better," Trini said.

"Well, Mrs. Cranston, it looks like we're going to have a little one on the way," Billy smiled.

Tommy looked over at Kim and sighed.

"Kim, I'm really sorry for not letting you know about the gems sooner," he apologized.

"It's all right, I just would like to know what my husband's doing every now and then," she smiled.

"All right," Tommy laughed.


It was the first day of school at Reefside High School two months later. Billy and Tommy had detention duty for the week. The three teens were Conner McKnight, Ethan James, and Kira Ford. They had no clue what they were in for.

"Well let's get going," Billy said.

The three teens looked at each other in confusion.

"Where are we going?" Conner asked.

"Yeah, I have somewhere to be," Ethan said.

Tommy rolled his eyes. Boy was he glad he was not their age again.

"On a little trip," Tommy said.

"This is so unfair," Kira whispered.

"What was that, Miss Ford?" Tommy asked.

"I don't see what any of us did wrong today," Kira said.

"Don't be angry with us," Billy told them. "We're not the ones that sent you to detention."


Tommy and Billy looked up at a huge tyrannosaurs rex. Tommy turned back at his three students he had for first period.

"Okay you guys, we'll be back, and if you find something interesting, I'll cancel detention for the rest of the week," he said.

Ethan picked up a rock from the ground.

"Will this count?" he asked.

"Funny," Tommy said. After the teens left, Billy and Tommy made their way to the door. "Closed?"

"Very peculiar," Billy said.

"Let's go," Tommy sighed.

His eyes widened as he turned around to head turns the woods where he had sent the kids.

"Um, Billy…" Tommy began.

"Yeah," he answered.

"Wasn't there a huge life size version a tyrannosaurus over there a minute ago?" Tommy asked.

Billy gulped as Tommy pointed to the empty blocked off area.

"If my memory recalls correctly, it should be there," Billy panicked.

"I was afraid of that," Tommy said.

As they slowly made their way to Tommy's jeep, eyeing for any sign of the creature, it came face to face with them.

"Run," Billy yelled.

When the two teachers got to Tommy's jeep, he quickly buckled off and locked the door.

"Great. Yeah, lock the door, Tommy. Real good," he said.

"Force of habit, now drive," Billy yelled.


Kira handed Conner her dino gem.

"I can't do this," she said. "Just forget I was here and I'll do the same."

"Why not?" Conner asked.

"That was stealing," Kira yelled.

"Maybe we should just give them to Dr. O and Dr. C," Ethan suggested.

"Go ahead," Kira said. "I'm out of here." As Kira walked away, Tyrannodrones attacked her. "Help!"

"Kira," Conner and Ethan gaped.

Before they knew it, she was gone.

"Not good," Conner said.

Without thinking, the two of them ran to Conner's car.

"Where exactly are we going?" Ethan asked.

"Just get in," Conner commanded. "We'll find out on the way."

"Great plan," Ethan said sarcastically.

"Do you have any suggestions?" Conner asked.

He started up the car and drove off.

"Yeah, Dr. Oliver's," Ethan said.


Tommy, Billy, Trini, and Kim turned around quickly as Conner and Ethan walked into the lab.

"Dr. O before you go off, can we explain why we're here?" Ethan begged.

Conner looked over at Ethan.

"Dude, he's just going to laugh when we tell him," he said.

"It's the truth," Ethan replied.

Conner looked back at the four adults and sighed.

"Kira's gone," he said.

"She was taken by these weird looking dinosaur things," Ethan replied.

The four former Rangers looked at each other. Tommy looked back at Conner and Ethan.

"They're called Tyrannodrones," he sighed.

Ethan's eyes grew.

"And you know this because…" he began.

"Billy and I created them. Mesogog must have got a hold of them," Tommy said.

"Why would you make something to destroy the world?" Conner asked.

"They were never meant to be used like that," Billy said.

It reality, they were created for whenever they needed to save the world again.


Kira finally woke up to Mesogog's voice.

"Give me the gems," the voice said.

Kira got off the table and began walking around.

"Who's there? Come out so I can see you," she said.

She was walking all over the room to find no one.

"Give me the gems," Mesogog said again.

"This is about jewelry?" she asked. "Look pal, clearly you got the wrong girl. I might wear a friendship bracelet every once in a while, but I…I."

When Kira turned around, Mesogog was right behind her.

"I have waited far too long to allow an insignificant teenager to get in my way. Now, where are the dino gems?" he asked.


Back at the Oliver's house, Conner and Ethan were still in shock about their teachers' insight of the things that were going on.

"Look, not that all this isn't really cool, but seriously dude, you got to come clean," Conner said.

"Okay first of all, don't call me dude. Second, as hard as this may seem, you two need to forget all about this," Tommy replied.

Conner used his speed to catch up with Tommy. Billy walked up by him with Trini, Kim, and Maggie.

"Tommy, the gems powers are already starting to bond with them," Billy said.

"Yeah, I know," he sighed.


They had found Kira and finished fighting Mesogog's 'creeps'. It was the next day, and Tommy had just given the three teenagers their morphers and communicators.

"I have to sit down," Ethan said.

Conner helped Ethan as he fell to a chair. Kim and Trini walked into the lab. Conner looked up at them.

"Hey, Dr. O, you forgot to introduce these two lovely ladies to us the other day," he said.

"Everyone, this is my wife, Kim, and Billy's wife, Trini," Tommy replied.

"Hey, Kim, Trini," they said.

"It's nice to meet all of you," Kim smiled.

Kira could not help but notice Trini's lump.

"Oh, how far alone are you, Trini?" Kira asked.

"I'm four months," she said.


Yeah, I know how Tommy got a hold of the gems. I'm not stupid.
