Chapter 18-Madness at Lunchtime
WEAPONS RECOGNIZED. INPUT TRANSMISSION READY.
“Okay, let’s get this thing going here.” Hayley said
as she saw the words being displayed on one corner of the screen. The rest of the screen showed somewhat of a schematic layout
of Conner’s Tyranno staff and Ethan’s Tricera shield. Next to each weapon was a bar that showed the status of
what Hayley was going to transmit into them.
“Um, Hayley, I don’t mean to repeat what Trent just said, but
do you think maybe you could fill the rest of us in on what’s going on? Because I think six out of the seven of us (myself
included) are pretty much in the dark here.” Ethan said.
“Okay, fair enough.” Hayley said as she turned from the screen
to face Ethan. “Everyone, come on over.” she said as she gestured with both hands to beckon Trent, Kira, Conner,
Tommy, and Kat over to where she and Ethan were.
“Okay Hayley, we’re here. Now do you think you could
fill us in?” Conner asked.
“Indeed I will.” Hayley said as she then turned to Ethan. “Now
Ethan, here’s a rhetorical question: Have you played Megaman Zero 1 & 2?”
“Yeah, of course I have.” Ethan said.
Hayley nodded. “And when it came to taking on a few bosses, namely
those with oh, I don’t know, say…electric-based powers, what element chip would you use?”
“I used a…an ice chip.” Ethan said as a look of realization
began to cross his face as he started to catch on to what Hayley might be planning.
“Okay, I don’t mean to interrupt, but what does a video game
have to do with stopping a cross-bred cat-bird creature?” Conner asked.
“Interestingly, something.” Hayley replied. “Or to put
it more specifically, something from it.”
“Okay, I’m still lost.”
“Okay, let me show you what I mean.” Hayley said as she turned
back to the computer screen and punched in some keys. Once she was done a few displays of Tommy using his Brachio staff’s
wind power against Felectro showed up on the screen.
“What do you guys see?”
“Felectro getting blown away (literally blown away) by Dr. O’s
wind strike.” Trent said.
Hayley then raised one finger. “A-hah! Keyword: wind. So what do
you think that tells you?”
“Uh-that he doesn’t like wind.” Conner answered.
“Not just any kind of wind,” Hayley said. “Cold winds.
Or put more specifically…” and she then punched in some more keys which then brought up an image of Felectro in
the cyber café getting water in his eyes, thus causing him to writhe about in pain. “…anything that’s cold.”
“Okay, whoa, hold on. Care to run that by me again?” Conner
Ethan sighed. “Conner, what Hayley’s trying to say is that
Felectro’s body can’t handle anything cold.”
“Or anything that could disrupt his electrical powers.” Hayley
said as she punched some more keys and an image of Felectro reeling from the earthquake strike Tommy had used against him.
“Hmm. Okay, I only see him reeling.” Trent pointed out.
Hayley then did a sequence with the keyboard which then caused the image
to zoom in more.
“Take another look.” she said.
Conner, Ethan, Kira, Trent, Tommy, and Kat looked closer and saw Felectro
reeling on the ground, his claws not even crackling in the slightest.
“Why, he’s practically…” Kat began.
“…as helpless as a beached whale.” Tommy said.
“Not only that, but he’s not generating any electricity what
so ever.” Hayley said.
“So let me see if I got this straight-basically, if we use something
that’s cold, or anything similar to an earthquake, we could actually put this guy down for the count?” Kira asked.
“More than likely,” Hayley said. “This was why I needed
Conner’s staff and Ethan’s shield.” She concluded as she closed the image windows, leaving only the schematic
of the two aforementioned weapons on the screen.
“Is this part of your idea?” Ethan asked.
“Yes.” Hayley said as she pointed to the screen. “What
this is is basically a program that’s going to transfer some new features to your weapons. Now I’ve already been
working on this for a while, and I was going to tell you guys about it once I was done completely with it, but seeing as how
Mesogog’s decided to amp things up a bit, well…now’s as good a time as any, right?”
“You can say that again.” Conner said as he looked at the screen.
“So what are they going to have?” Ethan asked eagerly.
“Well Ethan, your shield is going to have is what I like to call
a “Blizzard shot” mode. What that means is instead of firing regular stinger darts it’ll shoot out icicles
that will freeze anything they touch. Now granted, that’s not going to topple Felectro that much, but it should slow
him down considerably.”
“Sweet.” Ethan said.
“What about mine?” Conner asked.
Hayley smiled. “Oh, I think you’re going to like yours, Conner.”
she said. “What I’ve got for you is an earthquake feature.”
Conner’s face lit up. “You mean, like the one on Dr. O’s
“Well…yes and no.” Hayley said. “What it’ll
do is that once the staff has enough energy, it can unleash a fissure that could take out fifty Tyrannodrones with one strike.”
“Well, dude-I mean that…that’s awesome! One strike? So
all I would have to do is just put the staff on the ground and-?”
“Not really.” Hayley replied. “To make it work, you have
to twirl the staff back and forth, left to right and vice versa so it starts gathering energy from around it, then slam the
head of the staff down on the ground so it releases the energy as a fissure. You have to do it quickly though, because if
you do it slowly it’s going to take forever.”
“Oh, don’t worry. I’ve no intention of taking my sweet
time with that poser.”
“Okay. So having said that, does everyone get it now?”
“So what do we have to do now?” Kat asked.
“Right now we have put the features into those two weapons. Once
that’s done, we’ll be ready.”
“All right then. Let’s get started.” Conner said as he
rubbed his hands together.
“Okay, now I need two people to keep an eye on the status over here
on the machine with the two weapons there and to make sure everything’s all right during the upload.”
“I’ll do it.” Ethan volunteered.
“Me too.” Katherine added.
“Are you sure?” Hayley asked.
“I’m sure.” Kat replied. “Now I may not be technically
proficient, but I do know a few things.” she said as she remembered helping Tommy, Adam, and Tanya activate the Turbo
powers that Billy had been working on just before he had left for Aquitar.
Hayley then looked at Tommy who just smiled brightly and nodded his approval.
“All right, go ahead.” she said.
“What about the rest of us?” Conner asked.
“Just come on over here and keep an eye on things here with me.”
As Kira, Trent, Conner, and Tommy overlooked things from the mainframe,
Ethan and Kat were busy checking the machine over. However Kira got bored with it and decided to go help Ethan and Kat.
“Okay, it’s all set on this end.” Ethan said to Kat once
he was done.
“Great.” Kat said as she then hit a button with the words END
MODE MODIFICATION on it. Suddenly the machine started to hum a bit and the word READY appeared on a small screen on one side
of the machine.
“Okay, all systems go here.” Kat said.
“Great.” Hayley said as she then entered in a series of commands
on the keyboard. Then finally the words DATA INPUT TRANSMITTING NOW appeared on the screen.
“Okay, it’s done. It should be doing it now.” Hayley
said as she saw the status bar on both munitions begin to rise bit by bit.
“Kat, what’s the percentage?” Tommy asked.
“12 so far.” Kat reported.
For the next while the group of seven would just look at the main computer
screen or the machine with the munitions, depending on where they were, with Kat saying the percentage progress every now
and then. Once she said “100” Hayley then looked at her own screen and saw that the status bar on both weapons
had also reached 100 as well in addition to a DATA INPUT TRANSMISSION COMPLETE imposed on the screen.
“All right. It’s done.” Hayley said as she wiped some
sweat from her forehead.
“So that’s it? We’re finished?” Trent asked.
Hayley nodded. “Yeah.” She answered as she ended the program
and switched it off leaving only the screen saver with the Dino-Thunder symbol.
“Well, shouldn’t we test them first? I mean, this is some heavy-duty
stuff you put in these things.” Ethan remarked as he and Conner picked up their respective weapons.
“Normally I would give them a test run, but the only way to know
what they can really do is on the battlefield, and seeing as how we don’t really know when or where Elsa and co. are
going to strike next, all we can do now is just wait.” Hayley said.
“That’s it? Just wait?” Kira asked.
“I’m afraid so.” Hayley said as she then turned around
back to the screen and checked the scanner. When she came up with nothing she turned back to the others. “And unless
Mesogog found a way to scramble up our scanning system, I’ve got nothing here.”
“Well at least now we’re prepared, so if they decide to show
up, we’ll be ready.” Conner said as he looked at his staff which then disappeared into a ball of light and went
back into his morpher. Ethan’s shield also did the same.
“Oh yeah, does anyone know what time it is?” Conner asked.
Tommy checked his watch. “It’s about 12:45, why?”
Conner patted his stomach. “I’m feeling hungry.”
Now Ethan was on the verge of saying something about Conner thinking only
with his stomach but then he felt his own stomach begin to growl. “I hate to say it, but me too.”
Tommy then looked at Hayley, Kira, Trent, and Katherine and he could see
that pretty much everyone (himself included) was beginning to feel the same way Conner and Ethan did hunger-wise.
“So…anyone in the mood for a burger and a smoothie?”
“Uh, Tommy, hello?” Hayley said.
Tommy then looked at Hayley and suddenly remembered what had happened at
the cyber café last night. “Oh, right. I forgot.”
“What happened?” Katherine asked.
“Remember the cyber café where Elsa and co. were last night?”
“Yeah, a little.”
“Well, that’s the place that I manage. Unfortunately because
of what happened last night it got trashed up pretty good so I decided to close it today for repairs until I can get a replacement
“How long is that going to take?” Ethan asked.
“Well, I called a glass repair company this morning and they said
they can come by and get it repaired sometime tomorrow.”
“Well, that’s good to hear.” Trent remarked.
“Well, why don’t we all head someplace for lunch then?”
Kat suggested. “I mean, it doesn’t look like they’re going to show up anytime soon.”
“True.” Tommy said with a thoughtful, unsure look on his face.
Though he wanted nothing more than to have lunch with Kat, he couldn’t help but feel as though Elsa and her cohorts
would appear someplace and try to draw them out again. Or worse-case scenario, Kat might end up in the crossfire and get hurt,
“Doc, we’re starving here. Or at least I am. Okay, so we can’t
use the cyber café at the moment, but can’t we at least go to…Subway or something?” Conner pleaded as he
saw the unsure look on his teacher’s face. “I mean, come on, we already got the upgrades, we can do no wrong;
especially if Elsa, Felectro, and that Ranger imposter show up.”
Tommy looked at Conner, then at Hayley, Kira, Trent, and Ethan, not even
needing to look at them twice to know that they were agreeing with what Conner said. Then when he looked at Katherine, or
more specifically right into her eyes he then threw that fear into the wind.
“All right, let’s go. Let’s do it. But…let me pay
though.” He said as he smiled at Katherine and got up.
“Go ahead, I’m dead broke anyway.” Conner said.
“Dude, you’re always broke.” Ethan said.
After debating a little bit on where to go for lunch, it was finally agreed
that they would go eat at a Subway near Alta Drive. Tommy and Kat took the jeep with Hayley sitting in the back, while Conner
and his friends went in Conner’s Mustang with Conner and Ethan in the front and Trent and Kira in the back.
“So Katherine, Tommy tells me you just recently arrived here in Reefside.”
Kat nodded in agreement. “Yeah, I did. After a couple of years at
the Royal Academy, I just felt it was time for me to break off on my own and start over. So about a year ago I called around
and sent e-mails (with a little help from an old friend) to some of the dance schools here in America (or more specifically,
here in California). Then a few weeks later I got a job offer/interview at Cosmos so I packed my bags and made my way over
“Wait, isn’t that the dance school down on Jackson Blvd.?”
“Yeah, that’s the one.” Kat answered.
“So you came all the way from London to Reefside to teach dance to
girls (and guys)?” Hayley asked. “Seems a little bit like a long shot though, don’t you think?”
Kat nodded. “Yeah, I guess you could say that. But as strange as
it sounds, it was something I wanted to do.” she replied. “Plus on a personal side I had wanted to come back to
the states anyway.”
“Any specific reason?” Tommy asked curiously as he joined in
Kat then looked at Tommy and smiled. “I guess you could say it was
more of the memories that I had here.” she said. “I mean, don’t get me wrong, the years I had at the Royal
Academy were awesome, but as much as I had liked being there, there was just something…I don’t know, something…telling
me that maybe moving back here to California would be a good choice. I mean, I know that sounds a little strange, and at times
I’m still trying to wrap my brain around it, but that was how I felt.”
“Well, for what it’s worth, it doesn’t sound strange
to me.” Tommy said, remembering back when he was first going into paleontology he would at times ask himself if he was
sure that this was the field he wanted to go into.
“Thanks, Tommy.” Kat said.
Tommy just smiled and chuckled a bit as a light blush began to spread up
his neck. “Oh yeah, are you still staying at the Days Inn?”
“Yeah, I still haven’t had time to look into an apartment yet,
but I’m hoping to do that when I get back to my suite.”
“Well, how about if once we’re done we head back to Tommy’s
place before you get back later, I’m pretty sure I can look up some apartments for you.” Hayley suggested.
“Wow, thanks Hayley.” Kat said.
A while later they arrived at Alta Drive where Subway was and interestingly
enough they were able to find two parking spaces right next to each other so Conner was able to park his Mustang next to his
teacher’s jeep. Once they got out Conner, Ethan, Kira, Trent, Dr. Oliver, Kat, and Hayley then went inside to get some
food. Conner went for the Spicy Italian, Ethan chose Turkey Breast, Kira chose Sweet onion Chicken Teriyaki; Dr. Oliver chose
Tuna; Kat chose the same hero sandwich as Kira did-Teriyaki; and Hayley chose Cheese-Steak.
After the group got their respective subs and Tommy paid for all of theirs
(except Hayley who insisted that she would pay for hers) they then looked for and found two round tables they could use. As
they ate their lunch Tommy’s students then asked Kat about the things she did at London’s Royal Academy, even
though it was Kira who did most of the asking. When Katherine then mentioned that at one point she had actually been brought
on as a choreographer for a Beauty and the Beast play in London Kira’s eyes (and pretty much everyone else’s at
the two tables) lit up.
“So Disney actually has a production over there too?” Ethan
asked. “I mean, I knew they had the one on Broadway, obviously, but…”
“Oh, they have it over there, all right.” Kat replied with
a nostalgic tone. “And even though it was a smaller production than the one you would see on Broadway, it was still
pretty impressive. And you know…to me, that was probably…I’d say it was probably the best experience that
I ever had while I was there, and the most rewarding.”
“No doubt about that.” Tommy agreed as he sipped some lemonade.
“Oh, no.” Kat agreed. “In fact it was actually because
of that experience that I really started to seriously think about teaching dance, not just as a pastime, but as a job.”
“Why here specifically though?” Kira asked. “I mean,
why not New York, or…?”
“Well, I had thought about going there, but…I don’t
know, somehow…it just felt like it would be better if I moved back here to California; I mean I know that sounds kind
of strange, but the truth is, a lot of the memories and experiences-” she then smiled at Tommy. “-that I had were
here in California (or more specifically Angel Grove).”
“So, with that in mind you figured, Why not go back to where it
all started?” Ethan asked.
“Pretty much.” Kat replied. “Plus, Cosmos was the first
school to answer me back, so…”
“Man.” Conner mused as he snacked on Lay’s BBQ chips.
“Oh yeah, Hayley, how’s the cyber café look? I know that with
what Elsa and all of them showing up and trashing everything the fallout couldn’t have been pretty.” Kat asked.
“Well, in a nutshell, it wasn’t exactly a friendly sight, but
the mess wasn’t as bad as it could have been. So cleaning up wasn’t so much of a headache. However, if a certain
teacher hadn’t taken so long in getting back we could’ve been done earlier.”
Tommy sighed. “Are you guys going to keep breathing down my neck
about that?” he asked as he finished his Tuna hero. “I said I was sorry.”
“Well doc, I wouldn’t really call it breathing down your neck.”
Conner said. “Just stating fact. It’s cold and harsh, but it’s fact.”
“Wow, I didn’t actually know you to be one to use big words.”
Ethan said sarcastically.
“What? I’m a work in progress.” Conner said which caused
Ethan, Kira, Trent and Dr. Oliver to laugh.
“Oh yeah, Kat, speaking of Thanksgiving, were you able to go get
something-?” Tommy asked.
“No, not really.” Kat said as she finished up her sandwich
and put everything in the Subway bag it came in. “Once you dropped me off, I pretty much changed and went to sleep.”
“So you didn’t really have much of a Thanksgiving, huh?”
“No,” Kat answered. “Well, when I first arrived I didn’t
really know anyone that lived here, although had I known that you were living here, I probably would’ve called you,
but as it was, I didn’t know your number or anything of the sort, so…”
“Yeah…” Tommy said as he looked down a little bit, then
back to Kat.
“Well, you know…” Trent began.
“What is it, Trent?” Kira asked.
“Oh, nothing. Just talking to myself.” Trent said.
“You were going to say something, man. What was it?” Ethan
“It’s nothing. It’s just something that popped up in
my head but I don’t know…”
“Dude, come on, spill it.” Conner said. “You’re
milking the suspense here.”
Trent sighed. “All right, here’s the deal.” he said as
he drank the last of his Sierra Mist. “Seeing as how our Thanksgiving party got ruined last night, and seeing as how
we have an old fla-excuse me-friend of Dr. O’s here, I’m thinking that maybe…could we maybe…have a
Thanksgiving party of our own at Dr. O’s place?”
“Whoa, y’ know what? That’s not too shabby of an idea.”
Ethan said as he pictured the idea in his mind. “What do you guys think?”
“Hey, sounds pretty good to me.” Kira said.
“Dude, come on, you really need to ask? So long as we don’t
have to worry about Mesogog crashing the party, I’m there.” Conner said.
“Hayley? Kat? Dr. O? What do you think?”
Kat was thoughtful for a moment. “Sounds a little bit like a belated
Thanksgiving party, but…sure, why not?”
“Well, usually I’d throw the party at the cyberspace, but since
that’s not really an option (as all of you have seen/heard of) I’m all for it, but the question is, is our friendly
neighborhood doctor here okay with it?” Hayley then looked at Tommy.
Tommy looked at Hayley, then at all of his students and then at Katherine,
getting thoughtful as he faced each of them. Then suddenly a smile began to break out. At first it was small, but then when
he looked at Katherine a second time, his trademark smile, or at least the smile that Kat could always recognize and love,
was shining through.
“Let’s do it.” he said.
“Yes!” “All right!”
“But…if we’re doing this, can we try not to trash my
“Doc, the only time you ever actually use your house is if you’re
going to sleep, washing up, or cooking breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And occasionally if you want to listen to music or watch
the Tony Danza show.” Ethan said. “Besides, you should know us by now that we’re not going to wreck the
place. Although I’m not too sure about Conner, though.”
“Hey! I resent that!” Conner retorted as he stuffed the last
chip in his mouth.
“Just kidding, man.” Ethan said.
“Well, since we are doing this at your place Tommy, how about you
do the cooking?” Hayley asked rhetorically.
“I…what?” Hayley asked with a very rhetorical tone.
“Well, it’s just that…I can’t…really…”
“No! You can’t really cook, can you, doc?” Ethan asked.
Tommy then looked at his students and sighed defeatedly. “No, not
really.” He said. “Well, unless you count making cold cereal and maybe toast (and sometimes that can be
a pain) cooking, then, yeah.”
“Boy, and I thought I was worse.” Conner said.
“Well, if it makes you feel any better Dr. O, you can leave the cooking
to me.” Trent offered.
“Yeah, since we apparently have our own Emeril Lagasse here, we’ll
spare you the pressure of having to do that.” Ethan said as he clapped Trent on his shoulder.
“Ah-hah. Very funny.” Tommy said.
Once everyone was done with lunch, they then headed out of Subway to head
for their cars and go back to Tommy’s house. They were just getting close to their vehicles when an invisiportal opened
up and Elsa, Felectro, and the White Ranger clone appeared, along with the usual Tyrannodrones.
“Well, well, if it isn’t our old buddies from last night!”
The bystanders that were nearby started to run away for cover once they
saw Mesogog’s henchmen appear.
“Y’ know, why can’t you guys bother somebody else for
once?” Kira asked.
“And miss out on seeing your inevitable demise? Come on, you should
know us (or at least me) better than that by now.” Elsa declared as she drew her sword. “But that’s enough
formalities for the moment; let’s get this party started, shall we? Attack!” she commanded as she pointed her
sword at the group of seven.
“Hayley, Kat, get back. We’ll take care of these guys.”
Tommy said as he and his four protégés took their battle stances.
“But-“ Kat protested.
“Kat, trust me.” Tommy said as he looked at her square in the
eye. He didn’t say it in words, but as he looked at Kat he wanted her to know that he just didn’t want her to
get hurt out of helping him and his students. Though he knew Kat could more than hold her own when it came to Tyrannodrones,
as he had already seen, he knew it would be a completely different story if she took on Elsa or the White Ranger clone by
Kat of course could easily see what Tommy was trying to “say”,
but before she could reciprocate she then heard Conner yell, “Dr. O! Look out!” Kat then looked to the right of
Tommy and saw a Tyrannodrone leap at him.
Tommy also heard his student’s yell and turned in the same direction
Kat was looking and saw the drone as well, but since it was coming at him fast and close, he found he wouldn’t be able
to avoid it. Reacting quickly Kat then leaped above Tommy and executed a sort of tornado kick that caught the drone off guard,
knocking it back towards its fellow drones. Once she landed back on the ground she then gave him a look that said she wasn’t
going to stay on the sidelines, Ranger powers or not.
Conner, Ethan, Kira, and Trent also saw the move Kat had done and had their
eyes and mouths wide open in surprise. However, they couldn’t really relax for more drones started coming at all seven
“Hayley, take cover somewhere.” Tommy said. “Kat? Stay
close to me and be careful.”
“Always.” Kat said as she smiled lightly.
While Tommy, Kat, Ethan, Trent, Conner, and Kira fought the Tyrannodrones,
Hayley then took cover behind some cars. As she saw them approach she then took out a small device from her pocket and switched
Hope this works. She thought to herself as she entered in
a series of codes into the device. As she was finishing up she then heard a low growl and saw some Tyrannodrones facing her.
Hayley then stood up calmly as the drones then raced towards her and pointed the device at them. At first there was nothing,
but then when Hayley looked at the screen she then saw the words “Emitting Signal” appear on the screen and then
when she looked back up she saw the Tyrannodrones in front of her begin to flail wildly out of control. Some then started
to have sparks exploding out of their bodies as they started to collapse and shake like they were having seizures.
Once Elsa saw that the Tyrannodrones were getting schooled (not surprisingly),
she then decided to take things up a notch and so she fired an energy beam at the group of six, knocking them all down to
“You know, I really hope you don’t pull off the same stunts
like last time.” Elsa sneered. “Because now it’s just getting boring.”
The group recoiled a bit as they struggled to get back up. Conner then
looked to his right and saw his teacher helping Katherine to her feet. To his left he saw Kira doing the same with Trent and
Ethan trying to get up on his own.
“If you came all the way here hoping we’d give you the same
can of whoop-ass, you better think again, sweetheart.” Conner snapped back. “‘Cause we’re about to
open up a whole new can on you. You guys ready?”
“Ready!” replied Ethan, Kira, Trent, and Tommy as their morphers
appeared on their wrists.
“Dino-Thunder, power up, hah!”
“White Ranger, dino power!”
Once the five Rangers were morphed Kat just stood with her jaw hanging
open. Even though she had morphed herself back in the day, she still couldn’t help but feel amazed as she saw Tommy
and his students morph into their respective suits, particularly seeing Tommy morph into his Black Ranger outfit. While she
now realized that the Black Ranger was in fact Tommy, she had never seen him morph before. Now, actually seeing him morph
and seeing him decked out in his black duds was starting to give her a sense of déjà vu. Namely back to when she had been
under Rita’s spell and Tommy and Ninjor had been fighting off a horde of Tengu warriors while she had been watching
in the distance. Though she was under the spell at the time she could not help but watch Tommy’s movements as he fought
them off, sighing wistfully to herself…
Not now, Katherine, NOT NOW! Kat’s mind yelled.
“We’ll see who breaks the can out on who, kiddies.” Felectro
said as he flexed his claws.
The five Power Rangers took their battle stances and charged right for
the evil trio while Katherine dealt with the remaining Tyrannodrones.
She had then just taken down one when she saw Hayley point her device at
a drone, causing it to flail about and collapse.
“Hayley, are you all right?” Kat asked.
“I am now.” Hayley said as she turned her device off.
“What was that thing you used?”
“A little something I made while down at the lab.” Hayley replied.
“Since I don’t have martial arts skills like you guys do, I gotta improvise somehow.”
“Improvise this.” Elsa said as she threw her sword lightsaber-style
at the two women. Luckily they were both able to dodge it in time so it didn’t lop off their heads. Rather it just whizzed
above their heads and returned back to Elsa who then got a death glare on her face as she faced Kat.
“You just can’t seem to stay out of my way, can you?”
Elsa asked as she stared daggers right at Kat.
“By the looks of things, no.” Kat answered. “But then
again, from what I can tell, you can’t seem to know when to give up, can you?”
Elsa then uttered out a battle cry and she then charged right at Kat. Kat
then quickly told Hayley to take cover just as Elsa raised her sword hoping to slash her in half. Kat however, was able to
grab Elsa’s wrist and stop her slash. Elsa then tried to side-kick her but Kat blocked the blow with her right forearm
and then did a front kick that knocked the cyborg off her feet, or so Katherine thought for the next thing she knew Elsa started
to spin 180 degrees and ended up back on her feet with her knees bent which surprised Kat a bit.
“Nice moves,” Elsa said. “Let me show you mine.”
And with that she then did a quick foot sweep that knocked Kat off her
feet and caused to fall on her chest.
Once Elsa saw that she was down she then walked over and picked her up
by the back of her shirt as if she weighed no more than a feather.
“As much as I’d like nothing more than to skewer you here and
now, it seems my master has requested that I actually take a hostage and bring him/her to him.” She snickered. “Lucky
“Kat!” Tommy yelled as he did a flying kick at the White Ranger
clone, knocking him down for the moment. “Let her go, Elsa!” he yelled as he charged right towards them.
Elsa snarled. “Put a sock in it, lover boy.” She said as she
pointed her sword at the Black Ranger, firing an energy stream that hit him point-blank in the chest, knocking him backwards
by several yards.
“Dr. O!” Ethan said as he and the others ran to where their
teacher was to help him.
“Your teacher will be all right.” Elsa said. “But I wouldn’t
be so sure about his new friend here.”
“Let her go, Elsa.” Tommy said with a warning tone.
“Ooooh, did I just hit a soft spot of yours, Tommy?” Elsa asked
mockingly. “Well, too bad. ‘Cause she’s Mesogog’s guest now. But don’t worry, you’ll have
these two to keep you company.” She then gestured to Felectro and the White Ranger clone. “T.T.F.N., Rangers.”
she said mockingly as she (with Kat still in her grip) leaped into an invisiportal back to Mesogog’s island fortress.
“Kat!” Tommy yelled.
“Oh, I wouldn’t worry about her as much as I’d worry
about my own hide, Black Ranger.” Felectro said as he took his battle stance.
Gritting his teeth in anger, Tommy tightened his grip on his Brachio staff
as he and the others drew their weapons and took up their own battle stances.
With the White Ranger clone flanking him, Felectro flexed his claws, causing
electricity to crackle from them, but this time, they were crackling more than before.
“So what do you say, Rangers? Let’s finish this!”
