Never Gone

By: Mili

Chapter 1: Siberia

The Angel Grove Youth Center, the place were all the kids or Angel Grove gather to train, eat, hang out with their friends. The place where the group of Power Rangers spend the most of their days. The place that has being the home of many important moments in their lives was just about to be the place to one event that will change
their lives again, especially the live of his Leader Tommy Oliver. A man walked into the Youth Center, with a letter on his hand. He leaded to the counter where he gave the letter to the owner of the place.

"Tommy this letter came for you," Ernie said walking to where Tommy's friends were gathering watching Tommy finishing his weight-lifting training "It's from Kimberly!" The group of rangers smiled hearing the name of their friend

"Thanks Ernie," Tommy smiled and gave the letter to Adam "Adam, Can you read it please? I still have one more round to go," he leaned to finish his training.

"Sure" Adam took the letter from Tommy and opened it. He started reading.

Dear Tommy

Everything is going great here in Florida. Coach Schmidt has me as ready as I'll ever be for the competition. Tommy, this is the hardest letter I've ever had to write. You've always been my best friend, and in some ways, you're like a brother. But something has happened here that I can't explain. It's both been wonderful and painful at the same time. Tommy, I've met someone else.

Tommy sat up quickly.

"What?" Kat gasped surprised "That can't be true," she said shaking her head.

"Maybe you should read this in private," Adam said as Tommy reached over and took the letter out of his hands. He continued reading.

Tommy, you know I would never do anything to hurt you. But I feel like I've found the person that I belong with. He's wonderful, kind, and caring. You'd really like him. Everything would be perfect if it weren't for hurting you. But I have to follow my heart. I will always care about you, Tommy. If you want to talk just call me. It's not your fault. Please forgive me.
Kimberly

Surprised looks in Rangers' faces; none really knows how to react.

"I don't believe this," Tommy said shaking his head, a shock look covering his face.

"Tommy?" Kat whispered worry; she walked to him and placed her hand on his shoulder.

"Look guys, I have to go, I see you later." Tommy said with shaking voice before got up and ran out of the Juice Bar.

"Do you think He will be Ok?" Tania the new member of the team asked, even when she didn't know Kimberly or the relationship that Tommy and Kim shared, it's obvious for her that Tommy was really hurt with that letter.

"I'll go to talk with him."

---------
When Tommy reached the door to the Youth Center he run, run as fast as he could, even when his legs were trembling, he needs to get there fast, when He arrived to the park he leaded straight to that spot close to the lake, their spot, that place where they shared too many moments, the place that keep all their good times, those times that now just seem to be fading on his mind. His eyes on the water, his mind on all the memories about her.

"Is this real?" He looked again the words written on the piece of paper on his hands.

"Tommy!" He heard his name and turned around to face the only person He can talk now with, even if he tried to avoid him, Tommy knows that he would never leave him alone.

"Jason!"

"How are you, Bro?" Jason asked him, taking place in front of him.

"I just don't understand," Tommy shook his head; everything seems so unreal for him.

"I know is hard but try to call her, talk to her," Jason has known Kim since they were kids and the words in that letter seems unbeliever for him, He thinks there must be a better explanation

"I don't know if I can. What if it is true?" Tommy closed his eyes trying to take away all the worries of his mind.

"Tommy, you have to face the true whatever it is, just talk to her, that's the only way you will keep going with your live,"

"Ok, I'll try," Tommy smiled him, or at least he tried to do it.

"If you need me, I'm right here for you" Jason put his hand over Tommy's shoulder.

"Thanks, Bro" Tommy said before left the park walking to his home.

---------

Tommy sat on the floor of his room, all the lights turned off, and little tears covering his face. He was glad to find that there was none on his house when he arrived, he can't or want to deal with anyone right now. He got straight to his room, with only one thought
on his mind, now his CD player on, repeating over and over the same song. How ironic is live, she was the one that gave him that CD.

Flashback

"Hi, Handsome. Your mother let me in before she left" Kim greeted her boyfriend when she walk into his room; She gave him a sweet kiss before sit.

"Hey Beautiful, How was your day?" He asked her with a smile on his face, the same smile that he gets when she is close to him.

"It was great, I went to the mall and I got something for you" Kim said with an evil look.

"What is it?" Tommy asked excited.

She gave him a little package "Open it"

He hurried to open it "The new Backstreet Boys CD, Never Gone?" He asked lifting his eye brow, surprised by his girlfriend gesture.

"I know, I know, they are not your style but you have to listen it, it's so perfect, so romantic." Kim took the CD from him.

"I thank you for the gift baby, but you know I'm not going to listen it, right?"

"Why? I bought it because it has great songs." Kim assured him "Come on let's listen it together and I will explain you every song, Please?" she pleaded using her puppy face that she knows he can't resist.

"Ok Beautiful" Kim walked to his CD player to test the CD.

They spent their afternoon together in Tommy's room listening the CD with both of them always commenting something about the songs.

"What is the name of that song?" Tommy asked when they started hearing other song.

"The name is Siberia, it's a really sad song" They stayed quieted hearing careful the lyrics of the song.

End of flashback

--------

Tommy just sat in his room letting the words sink on his mind. Trying to clear his head, debating of what to do now. He picked up his phone and dialled a very familiar number, he took a deep breath while he waited for someone to answer the phone, and a few rings later he heard the machine.

Sorry I'm not here right now, leave your number and a message and I'll call you back, Bye'

Tommy heard the beep, but the words didn't come out of his mouth, he hanged up. He is relieved that she wasn't at home. He wasn't sure if he was ready to talk to her now.

"If that's what makes her happy then I have to let her go" He said re-reading the letter for one last time before put it on a box under his bed. He leaned against his room wall and kept hearing the song until he fell asleep on the floor.
