Nineteen year old Amelia Oliver was driving through Reefside, heading home to visit her parents on spring break. It was only the middle of March and a lot had happened within a short year. For starters, when her father had asked her and her brother, Alex, to help train a new student that was only a couple years older than them, she never thought she'd gain a boyfriend of almost a year from it. She also never thought that their relationship would be cut short just before the arrival of the newest team of rangers.
Amelia knew the reason why her boyfriend broke up with her, even if he didn't know she knew. She thought it was kind of sweet, but would've wished for a different way for their break-up to happen. Who would dump someone in a letter? The brunette shrugged it off as she drove down Valencia Road and headed for her parent's home. When she thought she heard strange noise, she turned down the radio and listened.
Explosions meant bad news. Amelia gunned it and swerved into the driveway. She looked around and saw her brother, already in his Ninjetti suit (they had long since discovered their animal spirits and unlocked the power), fighting off what she quickly realized were Nighlok. She noticed her home was on fire and her parents weren't anywhere to be found.
Amelia leapt out of the car and ran to help her brother. "Ninjetti, the deer!"
She raced forward, attacking moogers as they came her way. Alex noticed this and groaned internally. He had been here when they first attacked, just like his parents. His parents had vanished somewhere in the middle of the fight, and he wasn't sure if they just disappeared, were kidnapped, or killed. He had been fighting for a while now and was getting tired. There was a lot of moogers, and though he was thankful for the help, he didn't want to see his younger sister get hurt and sent to the emergency room again.
"Amy, get out of here!" he ordered as she got closer.
"No way bro," she denied. "What the hell is going on here?"
"I don't know," Alex ducked a swing. "Me, mom, and dad were just talking one minute, and the next these things are attacking. Mom and Dad vanished somewhere. You need to get out of here, Amy!"
"I'm not leaving you alone to defend yourself!" Amelia protested. "I'm not letting anything happen to you. You need help!"
"We need help, Amy!" Alex corrected. "You need to go get help! You know where to find it! Go!" Amelia took down a couple more moogers before using her powers to turn invisible. She quickly hid among the forest surrounding the place, making her brother believe she left. Moogers didn't bother following her. She wasn't going to get help just yet. She needed a few things first, but she couldn't get to them until the scene was clear.
Amelia heard an ear piercing scream and looked to see her brother being carried off by the moogers and a monster, appearing unconscious. She took a few deep breaths to calm herself before moving to the burning house. Using her fire powers, she absorbed and put out the flames. Carefully, she made her way inside to the kitchen, where a small t-rex figure was still stuck on the counter. She pulled the jaw, opening the secret lair. She walked inside, shutting the door as she went.
When she entered the reconstructed dino lab, she heard the raptor riders making noise. She figured they had been scared by the attack. Taking a can of shrink dust that was on the table, she sprinkled it over the eight raptors, shrinking them. She scooped them all up and put them into a sack labeled "Do Not Open." Then she walked over to the raptor cycles and ATVs. She sprinkled the dust over all of them but the orange one. She put the other cycles in another bag with the same label. Still morphed and visible, she hopped onto the orange cycle and rode out, having everything she needed.
It felt like she had been riding the cycle for hours. She knew stopping would risk her being found by the moogers and Nighlok or whatever they were, but she had to stop. She found a small diner on the side of the highway and pulled into it. She managed to disguise the raptor cycle as a regular motorcycle and she was glad she had a motorcycle license. She parked and walked inside. Once she ordered, she pulled out her phone.
The first few numbers she tried wouldn't answer. The last people she wanted to talk to right now was her sisters, knowing they'd give her hell. Granted, Sarah and most of the sisters were on the world tour. Sarah and Kira and Hunter were singing. Tori, Eloise, and Lily were the backup dancers. Katey was the drum player. The only three who hadn't gone were Ronny, Leanne, and Vida.
The waitress brought over the hot chocolate Amelia ordered. She thanked her and went back to trying to reach her family. No one was answering. She paid for the meal and set off again on the cycle. After about fifteen minutes of driving, she pulled out her phone and tried her sister again, hoping she would answer. After a few rings, a voice came on the line.
"What's up Amy?" Sarah's voice floated down the line.
"Sarah," she began. Suddenly, an explosion went off behind her. She quickly looked back and saw more moogers heading her way, rampaging across the highway. "I'm in trouble."
"Trouble?" Sarah repeated. "What kind of trouble? You're not pregnant, are you? I swear I'll kill that boy."
"Well," Amelia bit her lip as she ducked, trying to get out of there fast. "I'm not pregnant. I've never had sex and we've only been dating a year. It's not that kind of trouble."
Sarah sighed of relief. "Then what kind of trouble, Amy? On a scale of cops going after you to monster attack?"
"Monster attack exactly, times two," she replied quickly, swerving through the lanes.
"Explain, now," Sarah demanded.
"Don't got much time to 'cause I'm trying to get to Jayden's place as fast as I can," Amelia breathed as a something whizzed by her. "I have very little to go on as far as finding it. Anyway, I was on spring break and decided to visit mom and dad. When I got to the house, the place was up in flames and Alex was fighting off those creatures…Nighlok, I believe their called. Mom and dad weren't anywhere. Alex told me to run and get help before he was taken."
"Alright," Sarah groaned. "What's going on right now?"
Amelia briefly looked back again. "I'm speeding down the highway on Kay's raptor cycle that I disguised as a regular motorcycle and right now, those things that attacked Alex are chasing me."
"On the open highway?" Sarah shrieked. "Are you trying to get yourself back in the emergency room?"
"Why does everyone keep saying that?" Amelia huffed. "No, I'm not. Alex told me to get help and that's what I'm doing. I can't help that my boyfriend lives in a city that's like, hours away from Reefside." She spotted the exit for Panorama City ahead. "Look, I gotta go. I'm almost there. Later!" she hung up and swerved for the exit before Sarah could yell at her more.
Amelia finally found a path through the forest off the highway she could take into the city. While in the forest, she removed the bike's disguise and morphed back into her Ninjetti suit before getting on her way again. She was hoping that if she led them into the city, then the other rangers defending the world from these creatures could come and handle it.
As she rode through the forest, she sped up. Moogers that came close to her were either shot away with a fire ball or one of the bike's lasers. Amelia had a feeling the creatures wouldn't give up. However, she was glad when she started hearing voices. She didn't recognize them, but she knew that what they were looking for was chasing her. Speeding up, she moved toward the voices.
"I don't see any Nighlok or moogers," the guy in a green suit spoke.
"Mentor said that the gap sensor went off and there was something here," the blue one stated. Amelia recognized them as the samurai rangers as she rode closer.
"Does anyone hear that?" Yellow wondered, looking around.
"Sounds like a motorcycle of sorts," Pink listened in. "It's coming from over there," she pointed to the trees. In a few seconds after she said that, Amelia burst out of the trees, moogers right behind her. She saw the rangers getting ready to fight, and who, she wasn't sure. Amelia rode past the rangers, jumping over them and using her invisibility powers to vanish in the air. She turned around and skidded to a stop, spotting the rangers taking on the moogers.
She sighed and sped forward again, becoming visible. The fight was scattered about the plaza, and it gave Amelia a good range to fire in. She fired the lasers on the cycle at the crowd of moogers in the center. Then she hopped off her cycle and stayed near it. Amelia began to fight off the moogers, dodging their weapons and making sure the bike didn't get wrecked. If it did, she was practically trapped. However, she was saved when the red ranger finally appeared in the fight and helped her. She smirked and hopped back onto the cycle, disappearing and taking off.
When the samurai finished off the moogers, they looked around, wondering what happened to her.
"Come on," Amelia grumbled as she tried to fix the flat. She heard something moving around her and knew she had to move fast. The tire was almost changed and she was hoping she could find her boyfriend's home soon. She knew it had to be around here somewhere. The noises got closer as she finished changing the tire. Amelia hopped on and sped off once again through the forest, seeing moogers appear behind her.
She sped through, turning her head once in a while to see how close they were. As before, whenever one did get close, she created a fire ball to send it back. Not once did she think of creating a fire shield. Amelia continued riding and as she came to the edge of the forest, she saw what appeared to be a giant brown gate. She bit her lip, wondering which direction to turn in as she got closer.
However, she was too wrapped up in her thoughts to notice the moogers behind her that fired a blast strong enough to send her flying straight through the gate and knock her unconscious.
The last thing she heard was "what happened" and "who is that" before blacking out completely.
A/N: Up next is the samurai rangers side of this chapter. What were they doing while Amelia was fleeing for her life?
