Tommy awoke felling warmer and more relaxed than he had in the last three months. He also was sore in places he forgot he had, but it wasn't so bad.
He shifted and wrapped his arm around his sleeping companion. He smiled into the flower scented hair and tightened his embrace. A soft moan escaped the woman's lips.
Tommy relaxed content on having the girl of his dreams tucked safely in his arms. Not fully awake yet, the former leader of the Power Rangers pushed back thoughts that had lead to this moment. He frowned as memories of a letter, a fight with his girlfriend, a meeting at an outdoor café, and finally the passion.
Kimberly came to mind. He didn't really care about the brunette at the beginning of their lust, but towards the end, they felt the love and the affection that they had forgotten they shared.
Tommy was torn from his thoughts by a gentle kiss on his chin. Opening his eyes he gazed into the familiar brown of his ex girlfriend's. Kim shifted and rested her chin on her hand that was gently placed over his heart.
"Hi," she smiled.
"Hi," Tommy said smiling back.
He no longer cared how he ended up in bed with Kimberly, he was glad he was here.
"Did you sleep well?" Kim asked.
"Like an angel." Kim smiled brightly and kissed him gently on the lips. "I'm just a little sore, though."
An wicked smile crossed Tommy's face as he thought of the reason.
"I wonder why?" he teased.
Kim laughed and moved to nuzzle his neck.
"It's your fault." she pouted and kissed his neck.
"You weren't complaining." Tommy jibbed.
"Have I ever?" Kim asked.
"I was a lot more gentle in high school, Beautiful."
Kim smiled at the use of his old nickname for him.
"That's true." Kim sighed.
Silence reigned as Kim settled his head back on his chest.
"So, what do we do now?" She asked.
Tommy stared down at her, his arms pulling her closer.
"I don't know." he answered.
To be honest, he wanted Kimberly back in his life. For good. He wanted to wake up her every morning with Kim at his side, but he didn't know how to say it.
"Tommy?" Kim began. She looked up into his deep brown eyes. "I want to start over. You know, start seeing each other again."
Tommy held his breath. He couldn't believe his luck.
"Kim, I would love that." He beamed.
Kim's eyes began to sparkle.
"Yeah." he answered with smile.
Second's later the former White Ranger's lips were captured in an heated kiss. He kissed Kim back with equal enthusiasm.
As heat began to build between the two former Rangers, doubt began to constrict the man's heart. What was he going to tell the others? Would they be happy for them or would they pity him for going back to the girl who broke his heart?
Kim noticed Tommy's mind was on something else and pulled away.
"What wrong?" she asked staring in his eyes.
"I was just think about our friends." Tommy said solemnly.
"What about them?" Kim questioned playing with his hair.
"What would they think?" Tommy answered playing with hair too. "Will they be happy or angry with us?"
Kim bit her lip as she considered their situation. She realized it was going to tear their friends apart. Half, hopefully most, will be happy and the other half will be totally against them. They couldn't drop this on them. Not so soon anyway. Tommy had just ended a long term relationship with Kat.
"We won't tell them we're going out." Kim finally said. "We'll pretend we're friends until we feel confident enough to tell the truth."
Tommy thought about for a while before giving his opinion.
"I think we should do that." He said thoughtfully.
