After the wedding, the reception was going well. Everyone had eaten and given their speeches, complementing and embarrassing the couple. Now everyone was dancing to some old slow song from the Nineties.
Tommy and Kimberly were on the dance floor. Tommy held his new wife close as the glided across the room. To them no one else existed but them.
Jason and Kat approached the couple. They weren't sure if they should interrupt but there was some unfinished business that had been hanging around them for too many years.
Jason tapped his best friend on the shoulder.
Almost like he was in a daze, Tommy looked up to see Jason.
"Hey, bro," the former Gold Ranger said. "We just wanted to congratulate you two."
"Yes," Kat said smiling widely at them. "We're happy for you. I'm happy for you."
Tommy smiled an uncertain smile. He remembered their breakup. The two letters from Kimberly that he had kept really broke the second Pink Ranger's heart.
"Kat, I'm sorry," he said. "I never wanted to hurt you."
Kat raised her hand to stop him.
"Tommy, stop," she ordered. "It's fine. I'm over it. Besides, if it weren't for you keeping that breakup letter, I would never have gotten together with Jason."
"Yeah," Jason agreed patting Tommy on the back. "Don't feel so bad."
They all smile at each other. They were at peace.
"Now if you don't mind, I believe it's my turn to dance with the bride," Jason said, whisking Kimberly away.
Kat, in turn hooked arms with Tommy, insisting they dance.
"I'm so proud of you Kimmy," Jason said. "You and Tommy finally tied the knot."
"Yeah," Kim said with a slight blush.
"I'm going to purpose to Kat soon," the former Red Ranger announced suddenly.
"Really?" Kimberly asked a little surprised.
"But it's a secret," Jason told her. "Don't dare tell anyone, not even your new hubby."
"I promise," Kimberly said with a sweet smile. "When do you plan on doing it?"
"Hopefully, by the time you and Tommy return from your Honeymoon, you and the other women will be doing some more wedding planning."
"That soon, huh?"
"Yeah, that soon."
They both laughed as the continued to dance.
Meanwhile, Tommy and Kat were dancing, several inches between them. Kat hadn't stopped staring at Jason the whole entire time. Tommy smiled at the blonde as he noticed the look of love permanently glued to her face.
"It's my wedding day and you're staring at Jason like it was yours," he said interrupting her thoughts.
Kat turned to smile at him.
"Sorry," she apologized.
"You don't have to feel sorry," Tommy said. "I'm happy for you two. You know you never looked at me like that."
Kat laughed. She knew he was joking.
"Well," she blushed. "You weren't ever my true love."
"I know," Tommy chuckled. "I know."
He gently kissed her forehead and hugged her.
"So, are we friends," he asked.
"From this day forward we will always be friends," Kat answered.
