"You," Kimberly said pushing her way trough the door.
Tommy backed up knowing he was in trouble for something.
"What about me," he asked cautiously.
Kimberly grabbed the edge of the door and slammed the slab of wood shut.
"You went and got yourself kidnapped," she said behind clinched teeth. "Again."
Still backing up, the science teacher held up his hands in a sign of surrender. The last thing he wanted to do was provoke his girlfriend.
"I don't think I had a choice," he argued gently.
"No, you didn't," Kim said. "But did you have to become a Ranger again?"
Tommy's backed up until the heels of his boots hit the bottom step of the staircase.
"Actually, I had no choice in that either," he tried to explain.
Kimberly crossed her arms over her chest and shifted her weight to rest on one leg.
"Really," she said.
"Yeah," Tommy said.
He couldn't believe his long term girlfriend was angry. She knew and understood that being a Ranger was important. But something baffled him. How did she know he was the new Ranger? There were no newscasters nearby and he hand just gained the power that day.
"Wait, how did you know I'm a Power Ranger again," Tommy asked.
"One guess," the woman answered.
"Hayley," Tommy groaned.
"Yup," Kim said. "And before you get into her having no right telling me, I'm going to say she did."
She paused and unfolded her arms.
"Tommy, I love you and if something were to happen to you, I don't know what I'll do."
"I know, Kim," Tommy sighed. "But this is something I have to do."
"No, you don't," Kim argued. "You can give the power to someone else. Just for once, take the less dangerous road. "By gosh, you have the worst luck than any other Ran—"
Kim's argument was cut off by Tommy's lips on hers. He needed to calm her down and kissing her was the best way he could think of.
Kimberly moaned into the kiss. She could feel her anger dissipate and be replaced by a burning passion. It had been too long since they last made love. Half a year, to be exact. And this was something the both needed.
Tommy gently pulled away. He gazed into Kim's brown eyes. He saw the passion and the love she held for him. Without a word, he began to tug her arm and lead her up the stairs to his bedroom, but Kim wouldn't move.
"Beautiful,' he questioned.
Kim shook her head and began to pull him in the opposite direction. Curious, Tommy followed her lead as she guided him to the living room. He chuckled as they both settled on the sofa.
"Bedroom too far," he asked.
"Yeah," Kimberly said with a grin.
She shifted and moved to straddle his lap.
"I love you," she said.
"I love you too," Tommy returned.
"Good," Kim said with a wicked smile. "Now, no more talking"
She attacked his mouth with her own thrusting her tongue paste his lips to tango with his.
Moments later, Kim and Tommy were breathing harshly. Tommy ran his hands up and down Kim's back and Kim traced patterns on his chest.
"I missed that," Tommy said.
"You would," Kim said, smiling up at him.
"You started it," he argued.
"Actually, you kissed me first," Kimberly told him.
"I did," Tommy asked.
"Yeah," Kim said with a giggle. "I thought you got rid of Mr. Forgetful in college."
"I thought I did too," he admitted. "I guess you just bring him out of me. You bring a lot out of me."
Kim stared up at him when his voice softened from joking to loving.
"Like what," she asked.
"Like the me I used to be before you left," he answered. "That teenage boy who only wanted to impress the girl he liked. The boy who wanted to always be the knight in shinning armor. I feel a weight lifted off of my heart and shoulder every time I'm with you."
"Oh, Tommy," Kimberly said and covered her mouth her hand.
Tears had formed in her eyes.
"I love you so much," she said.
"I love you more that anything," Tommy said. "That's why I want you to go home to Angel Grove, where you would be safe until Mesogog is defeated."
"But," Kim began to argue.
"No buts, beautiful," Tommy said. "Just go home and when the enemy is defeated I'll call you back. Then we will be able to talk about out future."
Kimberly nodded before reaching up and kissing him.
"I'll go," she said. "But, I want you to promise me that won't go into battle unless you're absolutely needed. I don't want to lose you."
Tommy understood. He didn't want to lose her either. He had big plans from their future and the last thing he wanted was to end up dead.
"I promise," he said. "I'll stay out of battle as often as the team can afford."
He kissed her again.
AN: There will be a sequel. It's going to be the final one for this series.
