Hi there! So little backstory: I've been working on this story on and off for about a year and I finally decided I should let the fanfiction world see it. Mainly I decided after watching a bunch of Power Morphicon 2010 videos on youtube that I wanted to give this story life. So enjoy!
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my OC!
She glided across the stage, each step perfectly executed. She let the music guide her as she fell into the same routine of moves that she knew oh so well. Her brown hair was pulled back into a bun that held still as she moved across the stage.
He watched her from his seat in the audience, a smile across his face. She had such concentration in each move but still wore the face to help tell her story. His smile grew wider as she executed more and more difficult moves that he had watched her practice for weeks. The music ended and he was the first one on his feet, clapping and cheering. He was not alone, as the whole auditorium joined him in a standing ovation. She smiled and curtsied before the curtains closed.
The lights came on in the auditorium and he quickly gathered his belongings and headed out to the lobby area. He walked in the direction of the backstage area and opened the door. He walked through the corridor occasionally waving to some of the other people who were running around with smiles across their face. He got to the room he was looking for and knocked on the door.
"Who is it?" The voice inside asked.
"It's me," He said. "Can I come in?"
"Doors unlocked," She said. He opened the door and entered the medium-sized dressing room. He heard the sink go on and smirked. "Gimme a second I gotta get this make-up off."
"Take your time," He said. He shifted his weight back in forth. Sitting in the same seat for three hours wasn't what he called a good time and his legs were partially asleep. The sink turned off and she stepped out of the bathroom. "There she is, little Miss Dancing Queen." She smiled and gave him a hug.
"Thanks for coming," She said.
"Anything for my little sis," He said and she rolled her eyes.
"I'm not little and I can so take you," She said. He cocked an eyebrow.
"Oh yeah?" And with that he began tickling her sides.
"Conner!" She squealed. She grabbed his arms and twisted them in an awkward position.
"Ow!" He shouted. He tried to pull his arms away.
"Say uncle!" She shouted and twisted his arms further.
"Uncle!" He shouted and she released his arms. "Geez break my arms why don't ya."
"Sounds like an excellent plan," She said with a giggle. "Now come on, my aunt is probably waiting out there for me."
"Aw she'll understand," Conner said.
"Yeah especially if I tell her about my little torture session on you McKnight,"
"Yeah don't," Conner said. She stuck her tongue out and he picked up her bag. They headed out of the dressing room and down the hall. They stopped at the door.
"Ready for the crazy masses?" He asked. She sighed. "Aw come on Margot they're not that bad."
"They're like scavengers," She whispered and opened the door. The moment they walked out they were bombarded by people. Margot mouthed 'I told you so' to Conner and he rolled his eyes and quickly led her through the mass amounts of people.
Kira sighed as she sat in Tori's van. She watched the different trees pass by the window. The mission had been interesting, to say the least, but she was so glad it was over. She had forgotten how much energy and exhaustion being a ranger had been.
"Earth to Kira," Tori's voice snapped Kira back into reality. "What's up?"
"Tired," Kira mumbled.
"I'm sorry you're tired?" Kira turned her head to face Adam, the real veteran of the group. "You were only doing this stuff two years ago; I haven't morphed since I was eighteen."
"And he's old so he's probably wiped," Xander said. Adam glared at him.
"I'm not old," Adam said. "I'm not even in my forties."
"Compared to me your old," Xander said.
"Just wait Xander," Tori said from the driver's seat. "Soon you'll be the one being called old by some group of rangers.
"I think by the time we're in our thirties there will no longer be power rangers," Xander said. Kira reached back and smacked Xander over his head. "Ow!"
"Bridge is from the future!" Kira shouted. "And there are clearly still power rangers around."
"Kira, could you please not shout?" Bridge asked weakly from his seat. "I kind of have a headache. Actually, I'm not really sure if it's a real headache or if it's stress. I mean my team is without out a leader in the future, which is really my present. But then again maybe I have a headache from not having toast in a long time." The van grew silent as Bridge stopped talking. Adam looked at him, utterly confused. Xander just rolled his eyes and mouthed 'wow'. Kira and Tori exchanged a look.
"Sorry Bridge," Kira said breaking the silence.
"So where are we going exactly?" Xander said.
"We're dropping Kira and Bridge off in Reefside," Adam said. "Seeing as the Sentinel Knight couldn't send Bridge back to the future,"
"Which is weird seeing as he brought Bridge here," Kira added in.
"Right," Adam said. "So we need to find an alternative way to get Bridge back to the future."
"But why Reefside?" Xander asked.
"Because we're going to ask Hayley for help," Kira said.
"And Hayley is?"
"The technical advisor for my team," Kira said. "Basically she helped Dr. O with all the morphers and stuff."
"Oh," Xander said. "And how long until we get there?"
"About two and a half hours," Tori said. Xander groaned.
"Just try to fall asleep," Kira said. "Bridge already has." Xander looked over at Bridge. Sure enough he was leaned up against the window fast asleep. "If you can't fall asleep I'm sure Tori and I can smack you over the head enough times so that you fall into a state of unconsciousness."
"I think I can fall asleep without any bludgeoning of my head," Xander said before moving around in his seat for a few seconds. "Can I move to the back?"
"Is my board back there?" Tori asked. Xander looked into the back area.
"Go right ahead," She said. Xander unbuckled himself and crawled into the back area where he settled into a comfortable position on the floor. Adam moved over and vacated his now empty seat.
"This is going to be an interesting ride," He muttered.
Tommy sighed as his students filed out of the room, eagerly chatting about their plans for summer break. He smiled at the thought of two months with no papers to grade or students to deal with. He of course had to correct that last thought. He was almost one hundred percent positive that Conner, Ethan, Trent, and Kira were going to spend their free time at his house as they had done during their breaks since they had graduated. He began packing up his stuff when he heard the door open. He looked up to see Elsa.
"Well Dr. Oliver I would have expected you to have rushed out of here as soon as the final bell rang," She said.
"Nope," Tommy said. "I'm going to make sure my vacation is nice and slow."
"So nothing eventful planned?" Elsa asked.
"Nope," Tommy said. "I'm just going to relax. You?"
"Anton and I are going to Greece," Elsa said. "He offered Trent to come as well, but Trent plans to spend his summer working at the cybercafe." Tommy nodded. "Well have a good summer Tommy."
"You too Elsa," She gave him a smile before leaving the room. Tommy smirked. It was always strange having a conversation with someone who two years before had battled with him on the field in front of the whole student body. He picked up his bag and exited the classroom. He left the school and got into his car. Tommy shrugged off his lab coat and threw it into the backseat. He began driving down the road when his phone rang. Sighing, he pulled his phone out of his pocket.
"I'm pretty sure it's illegal for me to be driving and talking on the phone," He said answering the phone.
"Well then if you don't want to break the law, pull over to the side of the road bro," Tommy smirked.
"Well assuming you're not going to tell me anything life-changing I'm sure it's probably safe for me to stay on the phone," Tommy said. The person on the other line was quiet. "Jase?"
"Well it really depends on your definition of life-changing," Jason said slowly.
"Jason," Tommy said warily.
"We're planning a little reunion," Jason said. "Just the originals but we might call up everyone else for a big reunion party later on."
"And by the originals you mean?"
"All eleven of us,"
"So that means Kim's coming," Tommy said.
"Well yeah," Jason said.
"Bro I don't know," Tommy said.
"Tommy it's been years since the letter," Jason said.
"Yeah and the last time I saw her she was avoiding me at all costs," Tommy said.
"She wasn't completely avoiding you," Jason said. "She was just preoccupied."
"I just don't want to deal with any of it," Tommy said.
"THOMAS OLIVER!" Tommy cringed when he heard the voice pierce through the phone.
"Jesus Trini I'm driving!" Tommy said.
"Sorry," She said quickly. "But you are coming! There is no way you're chickening out and hiding in Reefside."
"But Trini," Tommy began.
"Tommy I don't care if you think it'll be awkward or uncomfortable," Trini said. "We're all friends and we haven't spent anytime together in awhile."
"But the only way for all of us to be together like old times were if things weren't awkward between me and Kim," Tommy said.
"Then talk to her you idiot," Trini said. "Both of you have been avoiding this conversation for a long time." Tommy sighed.
"If it'll make you feel better you can bring your team if you want," Jason suggested.
"You really want me to bring four nineteen year olds with me?" Tommy said.
"Yeah," Jason said. "And then we can see if you really trained them well."
"You really don't want to torment them," Tommy said, although the thought of it made him smirk.
"Well it'll be fair enough when we tell them all those embarrassing stories you thought you could hide," Jason said. Tommy groaned.
"So not cool Jase," Tommy said.
"So are you coming?" Trini asked impatiently. Tommy sighed again.
"Fine," Tommy said. "So when is everyone meeting up?"
"Sunday at our house," Jason said. Tommy internally groaned, it was Thursday.
"Alright see you guys then," Tommy said. He shut his phone and sighed. He had an interesting vacation ahead of him.
TA DA! I hope you liked it! And just so you know, this will not be one of those stories that focuses solely on Tommy and Kim seeing each other years after the letter and discussing it. Said letter will be brought up, but it and it's consequences is not the sole point of this story. I PROMISE! So you should review, because reviews make me happy and wanna post the next chapter sooner!
