Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers Retold
Chapter 1 The Sixth Power
Billy Cranston sat on the bench outside his classroom for his first college course. He had always managed to be the first person to arrive anywhere. It was 8:30 in the morning, and class did not start until 9:10.
"Hello," a girl greeted him.
Billy looks up, and he recognized her from high school. She wore a yellow sundress, her dark hair was straight and laid over one shoulder.
"Hi," he said.
He then turned his attention back to his book.
"I'm Trini Kwan," she said.
"Billy Cranston," he replied.
Of course she would not recognize him. No one would.
"You were President of the Science Club in high school," Trini said out of the blue.
"Yeah," Billy replied in shock.
"I almost didn't recognize you without your glasses and overalls," Trini said with a laugh.
He looked down at his wardrobe for the day, deep blue shirt with a white jacket over it. Billy did not how what to say next. He was never really good at talking to others.
"Call it a makeover," Billy finally said.
"It was a good one," Trini replied.
"Thanks," he said.
A custodian stopped at the door and unlocked it for them. Then something came to Billy.
"So, are you still with Jason?" Billy asked.
Jason Lee Scott was the star football player at their high school and was very skilled in karate.
"Yes, we are," Trini said.
A couple of more students enter the room. With that, their conversation ended.
Jason walked into his 11:10 class with ten minutes to spare. He was never late, but always just in time. Looking around, he felt underdressed. Maybe his red sleeveless shirt and workout pants were not the best thing to wear.
"Anyone sitting here?" he asked as he stood by a desk. The guy next to him shakes his head. He wore a simple black top and jeans. "Hey, you're Zachary Taylor."
He recognized him from high school.
"Most people call me Zack," he said as the two shake hands.
"Right," Jason replied with a laugh.
"What's the famous Jason Scott doing here?" Zack asked.
Surly the star football player had any choice of college he wanted. So why stay in California?
"Most people call me Jase. I realized football wasn't for me. Karate's more my thing," Jason explained.
"I've wanted to learn some martial arts," Zack said.
"Maybe we can meet at the school gym some time," Jason suggested.
"Cool," Zack replied.
A student that had just walked in caught their attention.
"Is that… no, it can't be," Zack said.
The girl still had her dark sunglasses on. Her brunette hair barely hit her shoulders. She wore a pink top, but her jacket and pants were black leather.
Jason wanted until after class to confront her.
"Kimberly Hart?" he asked.
Jason grabbed hold of her hand when she would not turn. She turned and gave him disgusted look.
"Oh, it's you," Kim said.
"Glad you noticed me," Jason replied.
"Don't flatter yourself, babe," she said.
"What happened?" Jason asked. "You were the most popular girl in high school. The head cheerleader."
"Things change. People grow up," Kim said. Kim turned and began walking away. As she turned the corner a body slammed into her, knocking them both to the ground. "Watch it there."
"I'm so sorry. Here, let me help," the guy insisted.
"I don't need or want it," Kim said.
"Right," the guy said.
He stood up wiped his long dark hair from his face. He wore a green striped shirt and a ying-yang necklace.
"I'm Tommy. Tommy Oliver," he said.
"Are you seriously trying to flirt with me?" Kim asked.
"I was just trying to be polite," Tommy said.
Jason and Zack had found themselves at the school gym, Trini watching. Kim sat outside, a cigarette in her hand.
"You do know smoking kills, don't you?" a male voice asked.
Kim looked up to tell the person to fuck off until she saw who it was.
"Billy…" Kim started to say.
"Hi, Kimberly," he said.
She did not object when he sat next to her. She offers him the cigarette.
"No, thank you," Billy said.
"Still so formal," Kim replied.
Billy looks away as she sticks the stick back in her mouth.
"When are you going to stop putting on this show?" he asked.
"When are you?" Kim wondered.
"This isn't about me," Billy said.
Whatever Kim had on Billy, he knew she would not tell anyone. Billy was probably the only person who could get away with talking to her the way he did. Kim opened her mouth, but she was stopped when the ground started shaking.
"What's that, an earthquake?" Kim asked.
"I don't think it's an earthquake," Billy yelled.
The next thing they knew, they were on the floor in a different place.
"What the hell is this place?" Kim asked.
Jason, Zack, and Trini walked up to them.
"I was hoping you could tell us," Jason said.
They look around in amazement at the circular room.
"This place is magnificent," Billy said.
Billy started messing with the control panel.
"No, no. Don't touch that," a mechanical voice yelled.
The little robot falls.
"A fully sentient multifunctional automaton. I've never seen anything like it," Billy said.
"Welcome, humans," a booming voice then greets them.
They turned and faced what looked like a floating head.
"So, who are you?" Jason asked.
Trini took hold of Jason's hand.
"Like, what are you?" Kim asked.
"I am Zordon. An inter-dimensional being caught in a time warp," he said.
"And my name is Alpha 5," the robot added.
"Excuse me, but like will somebody come back to Earth and pick me up because I am totally confused," Kim said.
"This planet is under attack, and I've chosen you six to protect it," Zordon explained.
"If you haven't noticed, there are only five of us," Kim said, looking around. "Four now because I want nothing to do with this."
"Kimberly…" Billy called.
He took he arm, causing her to turn around.
"You're not changing my mind," Kim said.
She looked at Billy's hand still wrapped around her arm, and he let go.
"If you will look at the viewing globe," Zordon said. They turn and look at the sphere. "That is Rita Repulsa, and she wants to destroy the world."
"Well, good luck with that," Kim replied.
An object appears in their hands.
"What are these?" Zack asked.
"Your Power Morphers. When in danger, raise them to the sky calling the name of your dinosaur and you will morph into a formidable fighting force known to one and all as the Power Rangers," Zordon replied.
"I don't get it," Trini said.
"Jason, bold and powerful, you will command the Tyrannosaurs Dinozord. Zachary, you are clever and brave. You shall command the Mastodon Dinozord. Kimberly, graceful and smart, the Pterodactyl Dinozord shall be yours. Billy, peasant and wise, you shall command the powerful Triceratops Dinozord. Trini, fearless and agile, the Sabretooth Tiger Dinozord will be order your command," Zordon told them.
It took a while for any of them to reply.
"This is just too weird for me," Kim said.
She walked out.
"Kimberly, come back," Billy called.
"He could have at least sent us back," she said when Billy finally caught up with her.
"Zordon, what did happen to that sixth teenager?" Alpha asked the others followed Billy out.
"I'm afraid he's under Rita's control now," Zordon said.
Kim and Billy were sitting on the ground when Jason, Trini, and Zack found them.
"Guys, we shouldn't have left. He chose us to save the world. I say we do it," Jason said.
Kin got up and took off her jacket.
"Yeah, you would," she said as she walked away.
"There was a time you would've said the same," Jason told her.
"You really think we can?" Trini asked. There was an explosion, and putties appeared. "What was that?"
"Let go of me," Kim yelled as pair of putties took hold of her.
They each take one of her arms.
"Zack," Jason called.
"Right, these two are mine," he said, somehow understanding what Jason was trying to say.
They were able to get most of them. Jason looks in shock as Billy takes down a puttie.
"Billy, where did you learn to do that?" he asked.
He glances and Kim.
"I won't tell if you won't," she whispered.
"I've had some lessons," Billy answered.
The putties soon had them cornered.
"What do we do now?" Trini asked.
She took Jason's hand in hers.
"Zordon said these morphers will give us power," Jason said as he took the morpher in his hand. "Let's do it!"
"Mastodon," Zack yelled.
"Pterodactyl," Kim called.
"Triceratops," Billy commanded.
"Sabretooth Tiger," Trini yelled.
"Tyrannosaurus," Jason finished.
Alpha jumps up and down in the Command Center.
"They did it! They made the metamorphosis," he said.
"Teleport them to Angel Grove City. Rita just sent down Goldar," Zordon replied.
They were greeted by more putties when they got there. Before they knew it, Goldar was the size of the buildings.
"Dinozord power," Jason commanded.
"I don't think you want to do that," a sudden voice said.
They turned and see…
"The Sixth Ranger," Jason said.
They could not help for breathe a sigh of relief at the sight of the Green Ranger.
"We could use your help," Zack said.
"Who said anything about helping you?" the Green Ranger asked.
He looked at Kimberly. She would be lying if she said she had not been turned on by the power that he seemed to have.
"You could always join me, Pink Ranger," the Green Ranger said.
"Let's get to our zords," Jason replied.
They each got into their zords and combined them.
"Kimberly, whatever it is you're thinking, stop," Billy said.
"What?" Kim asked, but she knew she did not have to. Billy was one of the few people that knew her better than she knew herself. "I don't want to destroy the universe. But I didn't get a choice if I wanted to save it, did I?"
"Focus," Jason yelled.
"You and your weapons are no match for me," Goldar laughed.
Billy looked at Kim, but she did not turn his way.
"All right, guys. Let's see what this baby can do. Power Sword," Jason commanded.
"This isn't over. I'll be back," Goldar said. "Until we meet again, Power Rangers."
Rita angrily walked up to the Green Ranger as he entered the throne room.
"What happened?" she demanded. "You could have destroyed them."
The Green Ranger casually crossed his arms like nothing bothered him.
"I have other plans. It's going to be fun tearing them apart one by one," he said.
