A/N: This is it. The last chapter. I hope you like it and please review! BTW, I have no idea if Jason puts cheese on green beans and peas, but I do, so I wrote it in! I hope you're not too grossed out to read the chapter, lol!
Chapter 25:The Party
"Man, this place in Jammin'!" Zack exclaimed happily. It was two day later and the party was in full swing. The loft was decorated to a tee with streamers on the walls and hanging from the ceiling. A banner that said 'Go, go, Power Rangers' was hung up on one wall and brightly colored balloons were everywhere. Different color tablecloths were on the tables with flowers as the centerpieces. Along one wall was another table piled high with food with a smaller one holding drinks next to it and rock music was blaring from the stereo system that Zack had set up.
"You can say that again!" Lily told him, dancing nearby with Theo.
Meanwhile, at the food table, Tommy was filling a plate with food. "Man, these pizzas look good!" He was referring to the eight pizzas RJ had made that afternoon for the party.
"You should try the Thrilla Gorilla," Casey told him, picking up a plate. "It has banana slices on it." He picked up a slice of said pizza and put it on his plate.
Tommy wrinkled his face. "No offense, but that sounds disgusting," he replied.
"I agree," Jason spoke up as he joined them.
"What sounds disgusting?" Trini wanted to know, coming up to her husband and taking his hand.
"Banana slices on a pizza," Jason answered, indicating the pizza he was talking about.
"It's called the Thrilla Gorilla and it's actually very good," Casey told Trini. "Try it."
Trini shook her head. "I think I'll stick to the deluxe," she said quickly and reached for a slice.
"I hope you like anchovies," Casey told her.
Trini spun around and looked at him. "Why?"
Casey pointed at her slice. "Because that pizza has them on it," he answered. Trini shrieked and dropped the slice back on the pan. "The one on the end is a deluxe with no anchovies."
Trini shuddered and moved to the one he had indicated a picked up a slice. After inspecting it closely, she put it on her plate. "I can't stand anchovies!"
"Says the woman who eats them plain," Jason cracked, grinning.
Trini glared at him. "Very funny, Jason," she said withering. "At least I don't put cheese on my green beans and peas!"
"Hey, that happens to very good!" Jason said indignantly as Tommy wrinkled his nose.
"It's disgusting, bro, and you know it grosses out Kim when she sees you do it," he said.
"You know, it is not my fault that your wife has a weak stomach," Jason informed him.
"She only has a weak stomach for gross food concoctions!" Tommy shot back playfully.
"Would anchovies dipped in chocolate gross her out?" Casey spoke up.
Jason looked at him incredulously. "You have got to be kidding me!" He exclaimed.
Casey shook his head. "Nope, RJ loves it," he replied.
"Dude, that's just wrong," Tommy said as Trini turned a little green.
"What's wrong?" Kim asked, coming up to Tommy in time to hear him.
"Anchovies dipped in chocolate," Tommy told her.
"Ew! That's disgusting, and wrong!" She exclaimed, wrinkling her nose.
"My sediments exactly," Trini said, shuddering.
Just then RJ came up to Casey. "What's going on?" he asked, taking Casey's hand.
Casey smiled at him. "They're grossed out because I told them you like anchovies dipped in chocolate," he said.
RJ grinned. "It's actually very good. You guys should try it before you knock it." He picked up an anchovy off the deluxe and dipped it in a bowl of chocolate syrup that was at the desserts' end and put the whole thing in his mouth.
Kim and Trini shrieked in disgust as Tommy made a horrible face. "I'm going to be sick!" Kim exclaimed.
"I'm getting away from here; I've done lost my appetite!" Trini added and headed for the other side of the room. Kim followed her.
Jason quickly put two slices of sausage and pepperoni on his plate, grabbed a coke, and took off after Trini.
Tommy shook his head at RJ. "No offense, man, but you are weird," he said.
"Got it in one," Casey told him. "But we love him anyway." He ruffled RJ's hair.
RJ moved his hand away. "Hey, watch the hair," he warned. Casey just rolled his eyes in mock exasperation and filled his plate. RJ did the same and they went to a table and sat next to each other.
Tommy shook his head again and got himself something to eat and joined Dom, Billy, Fran, and Hayley at a table.
They all chatted as they ate and soon the others joined them. Then Fran and the Jungle Fury team cracked the others up with stories about all of Dom's pranks. After that, the originals told some stories of their own; from battles to anxiety in battle to all the misadventures of Bulk and Skull. The latter had the Jungle Fury team in hysterics.
"Man, I wish I could have seen all that!" Dom exclaimed.
"Yeah, if there were one more of them, they could have been the Three Stooges!" Theo added.
Tommy burst out laughing. "I told Kim that they should get their own comedy show more than once!"
Zack nodded. "It would have been an Emmy winner!"
Jason giggled. "It sure would've!" He exclaimed.
"So anyway, how long are you guys staying?" Theo asked, changing the subject.
Tommy exchanged a look with Jason. "Probably no longer than the day after tomorrow," he answered. "We have lives and jobs to get back to."
"Unfortunately," Zack added.
Jason poked him. "You love your job. You just want to party!"
"Naturally," Kim put in with a smile.
"But Dai Shi and Camille are still out there and are most definitely going to cause trouble," Trini spoke up. "We can't just leave them."
Casey smiled. "Don't worry. We can handle them. Just promise that you'll keep in touch and visit often," he replied.
"We will," Tommy promised. The others nodded and voiced their agreement.
"That's great. But we're wasting time sitting here. This is a party, so let's party!" RJ exclaimed. He jumped up and pulled Casey up as well. "Come on, let's dance!"
"RJ's right, guys," Tommy said. He got up as well. Let's go." Within moments, they were all dancing and enjoying themselves profusely.
And a few minutes later, as RJ pulled Casey close and held him tight, Casey found himself even happier. While it was true that Dai Shi and Camille were still out there, tonight they were the last things on his mind. He just wanted to enjoy the party and more importantly, this time with RJ. Snuggling closer, he rested his head on his shoulder and closed his eyes. "I love you so much, my wolf," he murmured.
"I love you too, my tiger, with all of my heart," RJ murmured back. And as they swayed to the music, Casey knew he had so much to look forward to; more ranger battles, future visits and hanging out with their new friends, working at Jungle Karma, but most of all, being with RJ and going on vacation with him. And now with Zedd and Serpentera gone, he knew that it would happen very soon. And he couldn't wait.
