AN: I don't remember where I first read "kitten" as a nickname for Katherine, but I sure like it. I use it a lot in the fanfics Katherine is in.

"Good morning Kitten." Tommy smiled as Katherine walked into the kitchen. He poured her a cup of coffee and she sat down next to him at the bar on the end of the counter.

"Sleep well?" She asked.

"For a while. Then I spent most of the night watching you sleep. I guess I was afraid that if I slept I would wake up to find last night a dream." Tommy admitted. "You're so beautiful when you sleep." Kat blushed.

"Thanks," she said sheepishly.

"I suppose I should check in." Tommy stood up and walked over to the phone. Kat watched as he dialed a number. "Hey bro, just checking in... Yeah, she's here too... What?... That's none of your business... Yeah... Okay, send my love to Jared... Yes, tell him I'll be there today... Okay, bye Jase." Tommy hung up the phone. Kat looked at him with a quizzical look on her face.

"What's none of his business, Tommy?"

"He asked me if we slept together last night, I shouldn't have to tell him everything."

"Yeah, your right. I don't really want other people to know."

"Well, Kat they already do. I mean we have a child together."

"Yeah I know. When are you going to see Jared?"

"After we eat" Tommy said then he went to the cupboards and began looking for something to eat. "How about pancakes and eggs with bacon?"

"You know how to cook those?"

"Yeah, I learned during the time I lived in Reefside."

"Okay, that sounds good." Tommy began mixing the pancake batter as Kat sat there watching him. He began to daydream about doing this everyday. With a couple kids wanting chocolate chip in their pancakes. He wanted Kat to stay with him and to marry him. He wanted so badly to have more children with her. He then wondered what Kat was like when she was pregnant.

Soon Tommy had enough food cooked to feed an army. He hoped that Kat was hungry. He set a plate in front of her and handed her a fork and knife. They ate while they shared memories. Finally Tommy asked a question he was wanting to ask for a long time. "Kat why didn't you tell me about Jared?"

She blinked a few times. "Well... Tommy I... You never came back."

"You broke up with me. Why should I have come back?"

"I broke up with you because you didn't stay with me. You came back from your little mission to Merinoy and stayed home for three days before you left again. I broke up with you because I realized that would be my life with you. I found out I pregnant after I broke up with you."

"I would have come back if you had told me."

"I know, but if you didn't come back to try and get me back, why would I want to force you back?" Tommy fell silent. She was right, just like the others said last year. He took a bite of his pancakes and looked away from her. I screwed up my own life. I missed out on her pregnancy and Jared's birth, all because I had to protect the universe. I should have been protecting Katherine and my son all those years.

"Tommy... Please don't do this. I can read your thoughts. It was just as much my fault as yours. I was impatient and too proud to wait for you." Katherine laid her slender hand on Tommy's shoulder. She felt him tense at her touch.

"What do you care for? You're leaving when we're done! You can't even come see Jared! He misses you so much Kat! You don't have to look at the pain in his eyes when he sees a child and their mother together! I do! It hurts to know that all he wants is for you to hold him one last time! It hurts to know that all I want is to live the rest of my life with you! I want to have more children with you!" Tommy whirled around and yelled right into her face, He didn't mean too, but he was so mad she couldn't stay. Her blue eyes filled with tears and Tommy felt his heart break when a single drop slid down her cheek.

"You selfish son of a bitch! Don't you think that I wanted all those things too. I want to hold my son for one last moment! I want to marry you! I want to share the joy of child birth with you! I want to have a family! I can't because I'm dead! In case you've forgotten you're the one who did it!" She screamed back and then stood up and ran out the door. Tommy sat there stunned.

She's right, I took all of her dreams away from her! I ruined her happiness and my own, not to mention Jared's. Alone in his kitchen Tommy cried. He cried until he felt he had no more tears in his body. He had screwed everything up. Now he had to find a way to fix it.


"Uncle Rocky, is there such things as ghosts?" Jared asked. Rocky picked up the four year old and walked toward the closest chair.

"Why do you ask Jared?" Rocky asked as he sat down.

"I think I just saw Mommy!" Jared exclaimed.

"Do you think that she was a ghost?"

"No, I couldn't see through her and she was crying." Jared saw Rocky's expression stiffen. "Uncle Rocky don't lie to me! Is my mommy really here?"

"Jared... I can't..." Jared stared at him. The look in his eyes was enough to break a rock. "Yes." Rocky whispered.

"I knew it wasn't a dream then!" Jared hopped off Rocky's lap and took off running down the hall. He spotted the door he had seen Kat go through. He went up to the door and it slid open. It was another meeting room. Jared looked around the room. He found no sign of his mommy. Then he saw the other door, he walked over to it and waited for it to slid open. When it didn't he pressed a few buttons like T.J. had shown him to do. The door slid open revealing a room with a couch and chairs and a TV. Jared heard someone crying. He assumed they were on the couch that was facing away from him.

He walked up to the couch. "Please, don't be sad. My name is Jared." He saw the couch shift and a figure rising off the couch. Jared focused on the figure, He prayed that it was his mommy. Sure enough as she moved out of the light Katherine's face came into focus. "Mommy!" Jared nearly leap into her arms.

"Jared. My little boy! Oh my Jared!" She bawled. She kissed his forehead. "Oh my baby."

"I've missed you so much." the little boy sobbed. "I love you!" He kissed her cheek. "Come on! Let's go see everyone else." Jared pulled on her hand and lead her out the door toward the bridge. He knew that everyone would be there.


"Look who I found!" Jared called as he drug his mommy in behind him. Everyone on the bridge turned to see Katherine. She shrugged and shook her head.

"Hey Kat!" Everyone exclaimed for Jared's sake. "This is great!" "I'm so Glad you're okay!" "Welcome back!" Came a few responses.

"So much for staying away from the kid." Jason whispered in her ear. She just gave him an evil glare.

"Hey Jared are you hiding in here?" Tommy's voice called as the door slid open.

"I'm here daddy and I found mommy!"

"So I see." Tommy said as he stared at Kat. Her eyes were red from crying. He knew that she was crying because of what he said.

"Mommy?" Jared cooed.

"Yes honey."

"Are you going to live with daddy and me, or are you going back to London?" Kat couldn't answer.

"Jared, mommy can't stay. She needs to do some things before she can. It may take her a long time to get this things done." Tommy replied for Kat.

"That's not fair! You've been gone for too long already!" Jared began crying and then ran out of the room.

"Great Tommy! Now he's crying!" Kat screamed at him.

"What were you going to tell him?!" He yelled back.

"You just have to make everyone cry today, don't you?!"

"What would you say Katherine?!"

"The truth!"

"He wouldn't understand!"

"He's smarter than you think. He would understand. Now he thinks that I can come back to him eventually!"

":I would explain this later on, when he's older!"

"Damn you Tommy!"

"Damn you Katherine!" Tommy stormed out of the room to go find Jared.

"Okay..." Cassie said silently. The others just remained still and silent. Kat began sobbing again.

"Damn him! Why can't he just keep his mouth shut?!" She whispered to herself. Tanya walked over to her and gently placed a hand on her shoulder.

"It's alright Kat. We're all here for you."

"Thanks Tanya," Kat replied as she hugged her best friend.


"Hey Tommy, can I talk to you a second?" Andros asked.


"What was that whole thing with Katherine a second ago?"

"A fight, what did it look like to you?"

"I mean... You two looked like you were ready to kill each other."

"I already have killed her." Tommy practically whispered.

"Tommy! You can't blame yourself."

"She does. She yelled that at me this morning."

"Oh, I get it. You two had a quarrel this morning and it just continued."


"What are you going to do?"

"I don't know. I mean.. I love Katherine so much. It hurts to know that she can't stay with me. I want to have a family with her, but..."

"But she has to return when this thing is over."


"I wish I could help, but I don't know what to do." Andros laid a hand on his shoulder and gave a gentle squeeze then walked away.

I don't know what to do either.


One month later...

The alarms went off in the middle of the night, waking all the rangers on board the megaship. "Now what?" Rocky asked in a sleepy voice.

"Kevaris!" Kat said harshly. "I'll teach him a thing or two about waking us up!"

"Let's do it!" Andros ordered.

"Let's rocket!" Andros, T.J., Carlos, Cassie and Ashley called out. They were morphed into their suits and teleported out.

"It's Morphin time!" Adam commanded.

"Zeo Ranger 3, Blue!"

"Zeo Ranger 4, Green!" The two men morphed and teleported behind the astro rangers.

"Light Star Power Up!" Katherine morphed and teleported behind the two zeo rangers. Tommy meet them at the site of the attack.

"So, light star ranger why do you waste your time with these pathetic earth rangers?" Kevaris sneered.

"I'm here to help bring you down!" She yelled. Tommy realized that she must have a voice scrambler in her helmet. She didn't sound like herself.

"Oh, I'm so scared. Not!" Kevaris joked.

"Let me handle this freak!" Kat stepped forward. "Pink Star Storm!"

"No, not that again!" Kevaris really was scared. He was impaled be lightning. "Please no more." He cried out in pain. His voice was weak and tiny. Katherine was really hurting him.

She stopped her attack and calmly walked over to where he lay on the ground. She knelt down next to him. "I want you to suffer as you have made everyone I love suffer. I want you to feel the feelings I have felt for this last year." She pulled off her helmet. "I want you dead." her australian accent returned.

"Kitty! You're alive!" Kevaris tried to sit up, but Katherine quickly pulled a dagger out and held it to his neck.

"Kat, No! He's not worth it!" Adam called.

"If you kill him you'd only be as bad as him!" Tommy cried. "Please don't go back to that side Kat!"

"We've been after this guy for a long time. I can end it all tonight!" She called back.

"Go ahead Katherine. Kill me, but you'll only be considered the bad guy." Kevaris whispered.

"Kat, we agreed to capture him and lock him up on KO35!" Andros beckoned.

"What are you going to do?" Kevaris asked eyeing the blade at his throat.

"This..." Kat said as she made a quick move that would change the rest of her life.
