Changing the Past
Chapter 1: Questionable Dreams
Kimberly Ann Hart, former Pink Power Ranger and ex-girlfriend to Tommy Oliver, climbed into her bed and turned off the lamp. She quickly opened her eyes as she heard someone calling her. The person was not calling her by her name, but by a nickname that she had been given years ago. She hadn't been called that in almost ten years.
"Tommy," Kim asked.
She turned the light back on and turned around to find him lying in the bed with her.
"Hey, Beautiful," Tommy smiled.
"You scared me, silly. I didn't know you were already in bed," Kim replied.
"I've been here for a while," Tommy said. "How's our baby?"
Kim looked down at her stomach and smiled. Being five months pregnant was not easy to say the least, but having Tommy's child just felt right.
"She's fine," Kim smiled.
She wanted to touch his body, but something was holding her back.
"Long day at work," Kim asked.
"Were we ever that questioning about Ms. Applebee when we were in high school," Tommy questioned.
"What do you mean," Kim asked.
"The kids want to know everything about me," Tommy sighed.
"That's how teenagers are these days. Give them a chance. This is only your first year," Kim laughed.
"Why did I ever want to be a teacher," Tommy wondered.
"Because you loved teaching karate at the Youth Center," Kim smiled.
"Yeah, but teenagers," Tommy asked.
The force that was keeping her was broken.
"I've never understood that either," Kim said.
As she touched his cheek, she gasped. Kim could not feel Tommy's skin on her hand.
"Tommy, what's going on," she panicked.
Her hand went right through him.
"Tommy," Kim gasped.
Kim woke up in a different bed, in a different room.
"No," she cried.
Kim began to rub her stomach. There was no baby, no Tommy in bed next to her. She threw the covers away and planted her hands on her face.
"Why does this keep happening to me? I thought this nightmare was over," Kim cried.
She was now alone in her room, and her own apartment in Florida.
"Tommy," Kim sobbed.
It had been a good eight years since she had written the letter. She hated doing that to Tommy, but Kim had thought she had found mister right. Boy was she wrong. They ended up breaking up a few months later. She wanted to tell Tommy, but that would have been selfish, right?
"Aw man," Kim sighed.
Now, she just dreamed of what might have been with her then white knight.
Kim woke up the next morning facing her nightstand. She sighed looking at a communicator just lying there, colleting dust. Alpha had made her and Jason one after their last trip there.
"Should I, or should I not," Kim wondered.
That was the question Kim asked herself every morning. This time, her answer would be different. It would have stayed the same if Kim had not have known that Kat and Tommy broke up a couple of years ago. According to Jason, he was not seeing anyone at the time.
"The only one stopping you is yourself, Hart," she said.
She made her bed and went to go take a shower. While Kim was in the shower, she let her hand run down her chest and hit a metal object. She looked down at the necklace and smiled.
"Clever Trini, very clever," Kim laughed.
Trini had sent it to her as a good luck charm for the Pan Global Games. It was a Chinese symbol meaning hope. Knowing Trini, it meant more than hope for just for the games.
"Here we go," Kim sighed.
It was time. She took the communicator and just stood there looking at it.
"There's no turning back now except time," Kim said.
She closed her eyes as she pushed the button. When she teleported out, her phone began to ring.
"This is Kim. I'm not in right now, so leave me a message and I'll get back with you," the machine said.
"Kim, this is Tommy. Listen, we… I need to talk to you," he replied.
A flash of white entered the Power Chamber.
"Kimberly, what has happened," Alpha panicked.
"Calm down, Alpha. Nothing's wrong," she replied.
"What brings you to the Power Chamber, Kimberly," Zordon asked.
"I have a favor to ask you. I… I need to go back," she replied.
"You know what can happen with time travel," Alpha said.
Kim turned to Alpha with her head down.
"I know that, but this is something I need to do," she insisted.
"Not everything is meant to be fixed," Zordon said.
With the destruction of the power crystals five years ago, Zordon was no longer the mentor of the new group of Power Rangers.
"Zordon please it was the biggest mistake of my life writing that damn letter," Kim cried.
She moaned as her cell phone began ringing.
"Hello," Kim answered.
"Kim, where are you," Jason asked.
"Out," she said.
"Well, get home soon," Jason replied.
"Why," Kim asked.
"Just do it," Jason said.
Kim looked at her phone when Jason hung up.
"Okay, whatever," she said.
"Very well then, I must ask you this though. Are you willing to deal with the consequences afterwards," Zordon asked.
"Whatever it is, yes, I will," Kim said.
"Be ready for teleportation, Kimberly," Alpha replied.
Kim closed her eyes as she felt her body being teleported.
Kim appeared in the back of the complex she lived in. She took a deep breath.
"It's now or never," she said.
Tommy now lived in Reefside, California. He ran to his ringing phone, hoping it was Kim calling him back.
"Hello," he answered.
"Hey bro," Jason said.
"Oh, it's you, Jase," Tommy replied.
"Expecting someone else," Jason laughed.
"Yeah, you could say that," Tommy said.
"The last name wouldn't happen to be Hart now would it," Jason asked.
"How did you guess," Tommy laughed.
"Dude, she'd not home. Want her cell," Jason asked.
"No! Calling her at home was nerve raking enough," Tommy said.
Tommy fell to his couch and stared at the picture in his hand.
"Just to hear her voice would be great," he sighed.
"You're looking at the picture again, aren't you," Jason asked.
"You're scary when you do that," Tommy said.
"Do what," Jason asked.
"When you know what I'm doing," Tommy said.
He once again looked down at the picture. Tommy loved this picture. It was a group picture of the original gang. It was also the first picture that Tommy had his hand wrapped around Kim. Tommy's head quickly turned to the door as the door bell rang.
"Someone's at the door," he said.
"Hey, maybe it's Kim," Jason joked.
"Oh yeah, like she really knows where I live," Tommy laughed.
"You never know. I might have slipped it up during a conversation," Jason said.
"No, you didn't," Tommy yelled.
"I didn't. Later dude," Jason said.
"Later," Tommy replied.
He opened the door to find Trent Fernandez and Kira Ford standing on the other side.
"Is everything alright," Tommy asked.
Kira looked over at Trent. He had just told her that he was the White Ranger. They had gone to the cyber café to tell Conner and Ethan first.
"Trent has something to tell you," Kira said.
"Dr. Oliver, first of all, I want you to know that I had no control over what I did," Trent replied.
Tommy's head fell. He knew what Trent was going to tell him. After all, he had been unable to control his Green Ranger powers at first too.
"I'm the White Ranger," Trent said.
"I'm going to let you in on a little secret…" Tommy began.
Tommy told him about being evil himself, and how they were going to find a way to free him.
"I don't know if you can," Trent sighed. "Soon, I won't be able to control it at all."
"Then we just have to work long and hard on this," Tommy said. "My friends didn't give up on me, and I'm not about to give up on you."
"Thanks," Trent smiled.
Hope you like it so far. Yes, I know Tommy should have already been fossilized.
