Summery: Years after the infamous Dear John Letter Kimberly Ann Hart calls Thomas Oliver and asks him to met in Angel Grove's Park. Can a relationship ten years old be salvage?
It was one of those rare times where he hated himself. Here he was, alone; in a park that had meant more to him then anyone else who lived there. He had good memories and bad memories of this park. And, this experience was turning into a bad memory. He wouldn't even had come here, but she had requested him to.
The tall, dark brown haired male began to pace. Memories from ten years ago began to resurface, and he couldn't shake them off. The lake had meant more to him, and too her also. He now wondered why he was here of all places. More over, he wondered why he couldn't just stay away from the girl who had broke his heart.
Two weeks ago he was sitting in his office in Reefside grading papers. He was getting tired of seeing the letters become unreadable since he had been sitting there for about four hours straight. He had groaned when he realized the writing on each paper had become illegible in his mind. Knowing it was time to take a break he stalked out to the kitchen for refreshments.
He was relieved when he found no one in his house. Truth be told he was afraid that when he came out of the office he half expected four teens to be sprawled on his couch. But, he smirked remembering the last time they had come to his house after a big test.
He had made them clean his whole house-- excluding his bedroom.
Smiling to himself he went to the refrigerator and pulled out a soda can. But, he had never got around to opening the can, because the phone rang.
"Conner if that's you I swear--" he began to say as he picked up the phone, but realized it was a woman's voice.
your spell again.
I can't say no to you.
Crave my heart and it's bleeding in your hand.
I can't say no to you.
"Hello?" a nervous voice had said to him.
Time froze. He closed his eyes and thought back to the last time he heard her voice. He knew who she was. Time didn't made her voice change, and he wondered how it be like to hold her once more. But, he knew that would never happen. He knew faith wouldn't be so kind. Yet, he could only think of the ten year old letter he still had in a nightstand in his bedroom.
So, here was Tommy Oliver waiting for her. The drive from Reefside to Angel Grove was a difficult one for him. He was debating to call her back and make up an excuse, but he couldn't. Every time he had picked up the phone he would just freeze.
How ironic, he told himself. Here he was- a legendary ranger. He could fight Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd, the Machine Empire, Divatox and Mesogog but couldn't face the woman he still dream about. Boy, he was going to kill Trini Kwan and Jason Scott once the day was over. They were the ones who gave her his number, but he couldn't even began plotting since someone tapped him on his shoulder.
It was good to hear her voice again. Yet, he didn't know why she asked him to come here of all places. And, he couldn't bare to see her again. She still held his bleeding heart with her hands.
"Kimberly... why here? Why now.. after all the time that has passed?" he asked, quietly.
have let you torture me so sweetly.
Now I can't let go of this dream.
I can't breathe but I feel...
The petite, brown haired woman watched him silently as he turned to face her. She had retracted her hand back, and weakly smiled. He didn't seemed to be angry. Of course, no one would hold a grudge after ten years- would they? She was unable to read his eyes. She now wish she could. And, that's only one thing she could of wish for. She had watched him retreat to a rock by the lake, and putting his head in his hands.
"Well?" he asked.
Kimberly turned around, and starred at the lake trying to form the words she wanted to say. Minutes passed, and Kim started talking to him.
"I couldn't stop thinking about you lately. How bad I have hurt you after all we been through ten years ago-"
He interrupted, "Was there even another guy?" he asked.
He didn't want her, and didn't need her. He just wanted to know the truth. He looked up at her. It was so weird to seeing her again after all these years. Her brown hair was tied into a bun, and she wore a pink sun dress that perfectly fitted her body.
"Yes... Tommy... there was. But, he kept playing with my heart. I didn't find out till he got one of the girls at the facility where we train pregnant. I broke up with him soon after. But, then he begun stalking me until Zack and Trini came to visit me from Peace Conference in Switzerland.
Zack and Trini couldn't leave me alone after. They wanted me to quit the Pan Globals, but I didn't want to destroy my dream. So, instead when they went back to the Peace Conference, they sent Jason to watch over me for awhile." She stopped, unable to face him, or continue with her story.
I feel good enough for you.
Drink up sweet
I can't say no to you,
And I've completely lost myself, and I don't mind.
I can't say no to you.
Tommy nodded. He wonder where she was going with this. Of course Jason, had asked him to talk to her when he was the Gold Zeo Ranger. But, Tommy declined. He didn't want to see her at the time, and could care less if she was hurt or not. It was better this way-- or so he had thought.
She finally turned around, and pain had filled the former pink rangers eyes. He had seen the pain in her eyes. He could tell something else happen in Florida.
"Did something else happen? Kim, please tell me," he whispered.
She nodded weakly and fell to the ground. Tommy stood up, walked over to her, and crouched down.
Tears fell from her brown crystal eyes. She swallowed. He knew she was telling him about the letter. The reason why they broke up many years ago. And, all he wanted to do was hold her in his arms.
But, he couldn't. No wouldn't. Deep down in his secretest heart he still felt pain from the letter from long ago. And, it didn't matter now if he was upset or angry. He just wanted to know why. More importantly, he wanted to know why she wait ten years to tell him this?
let you conquer me completely.
Now I can't let go of this dream.
Can't believe that I feel...
"After Pan Globals Jason pursued me to come home. To Angel Grove. But I didn't listen. I wanted to come back to Florida, because I thought no one would want me in Angel Grove anymore. I found out after I came home that my apartment was broken into..."
Tommy took a hold of the woman when he realized she was shaking. He thought back her replacement. Kimberly Hart's replacement was a blond haired, blue eyed Australian woman. Her name of Katherine Hillard. She was the same height as Kimberly.
Katherine had dated Tommy for sometime, but they had a mutual agreement to end it. Tommy's heart was not into the relationship anymore. And, she would be moving to England soon. The last Tommy had heard of Kat was that she married the first blue ranger, Billy Cranston.
Billy Cranston was a nerd back in high school. He always had wore blue overalls. That is until he started working behind the scenes for Zordon and Alpha. He had met Kat in England once he came back from Aquitar. And the two had hit it off.
She snapped him back to reality when she placed her arms around his waist. She then sighed and continued her story, swallowing hard.
I feel good enough.
It's been such a long time coming, but I feel good.
And I'm still waiting for the rain to
Pour real life down on me.
'Cause I can't hold on to anything this good enough.
Am I good enough for you to love me too?
"Tommy... he was ... living... in... my... apartment..." She whispered, swallowing.
"Tommy he raped me."
The confession made the man feel guilty. Here was the woman who had broke his heart many years ago. And, he felt speechless. He wished he listened to Jason way back when. But, he didn't. She was hurt. He was hurt. Yet, he wanted nothing to do with her. He realized then she was starring into his eyes. She still couldn't read them and sighed.
"I'm sorry." Kim said, standing up and stepping away from the man she once loved, and still loved. She did what she wanted to do. It didn't matter to her if they tried again or not. Yet, she was hoping they could. But, that to her was asking for the impossible. And, with that in mind she began to walk away.
He blinked a few times, and realized she was gone. He wanted-- no needed to hold her. To tell her everything was okay. He still wanted to know why did she wait this long to tell him. But, he knew somehow she would never tell him. Not now, since she slipped away from him. Again. But, he wondered if he was good enough for the former pink Power Ranger.
So take care what you ask of me,
'cause I can't say no.
