Dreams of a Cat and a Wolf
Chapter 10: Ordinary Day
By Andrea McPherren
Billy stirred awake and looked at the clock. It was 8 am and he knew he had a lot of work to do today. He smiled as he watched Kat sleep peacefully. The wolf brushed the blonde wisps of hair out of his angel’s face and kissed her still lips tenderly. He went into the bathroom and cleaned up, before going into the main chamber of the command center.
Kat stirred awake a while later. She looked around for Billy, but found that he had already got up. She cleaned up as well and went to find Billy.
“I think it’s this way,” Goldar said, as he and Rito rummaged through the underground passages.
“No, it’s this way Goldie,” Rito pointed in the other direction.
“No, here’s a sign. Command Center this way,” Goldar read.
“Well, what are we waiting for?!” Rito called.
“Rito! You bonehead, keep it down!” Goldar called back.
“Morning,” Kat greeted.
“Morning sleepy,” Billy replied, as he gave her a kiss, and went back to working on his device.
“Is that going to turn the world back to normal?” Kat asked.
“With the power coins and Ninjor’s help, it should,” Billy replied.
“That’s great!” Kat said.
“It would be, but Vile is on to me. He has put a barrier around the Desert of Despair. The only way to get Ninjor here, is for me to go get him,” Billy said.
“That sounds way too dangerous,” Kat replied.
“Well, I can’t really leave the Earth unprotected until the Aquitian rangers can get back here. Until then, we’re stuck,” Billy said.
“I know you’re doing your best,” she replied, with a kiss to his cheek.
“Thanks,” Billy replied softly. Suddenly, the monster alarm interrupted their tender moment. Kat and Billy turned to the viewing globe and observed an unfamiliar monster.
“Zordon, what is that?” Billy asked.
“That is the Hydro Hog. Master Vile has summoned him from Aquitar. He has teamed up with the Globber and they are attacking Angel Grove,” Zordon said.
“Wait, if he summoned him from Aquitar...Alpha, I have an idea,” Billy said.
“What is it Billy?” Alpha asked.
“Send a decoy message to Aquitar. Vile will be busy blocking the decoy, while we’re sending the real one!” Billy exclaimed.
“Aye yi yi, that’s brilliant Billy,” Alpha said, as he sent the decoy. As they had expected, Vile was busy blocking it, while Alpha was sending the real one. A few minutes later, the Aquitians arrived in the command center. Kat hugged Billy.
“It worked!” Kat said, glad that her Billy was not going out to fight both monsters by himself. Billy kissed her quickly and prepared to morph.
“Blue Ranger Power!” Billy called.
“We need Aquitar Ranger Power!” the Aquitians called.
“Well, if it isn’t the puny fish rangers and their puny human friend,” Hydro Hog said.
“You’ll think puny,” Billy growled, as he launched at the Hydro Hog with his lance drawn. Delphine and Aurico joined Billy in the fight against Hydro Hog, while the other three Aquitians fought the Globber. The battle was even and neither side was getting anywhere. At that time, Master Vile enlarged the Globber and Hydro Hog.
“Great, just what we needed,” Billy said.
“We shall call our battle borgs,” Delphine said.
“Okay, and I’ll have Alpha send out the Shogun Megazord and the Falconzord on remote.
The Aqutians were keeping the Hydro Hog busy with their five battle borgs, while Billy was facing the Globber with the Shogun Megazord.
“I’ve had just about enough of you slime ball,” Billy said, as he recovered from a blow from the Globber.
“But you will be seeing more of me. Once I finish with you, I shall bring my master what he desires,” Globber retorted.
“You don’t have a chance,” Billy said dangerously, as he called the power saber. With a powerful swipe, the flaming saber eliminated the Globber for good.
“Monsters come and go blue ranger, but I am here to stay,” Vile said, from his space skull. The villain launched a volley of lasers at the Megazord, violently tossing Billy about in the cockpit. Billy regained control and joined with the Falconzord. He shot at Vile ship with the missiles and made direct contact. Vile screamed in anger.
“Mark my words blue ranger, you will pay!” Vile yelled, before leaving the earth’s atmosphere, taking the Hydro Hog with him for another day.
Kat and Alpha cheered, as they witnessed the battle. Billy and the Aquitian rangers arrived back in the command center.
“You were wonderful!” Kat said, as she flung her arms around him.
“THE DESTRUCTION OF THE GLOBBER IS TRULY A REASON TO CELEBRATE, BUT WE MUST ACT NOW. BILLY, IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO TRAVEL TO GET NINJOR. WHILE YOU ARE GONE, THE AQUITIANS WILL REHYDRATE AT THE FOUNTAIN AND HOLD OFF ANY ATTACKS. I ALSO BELIEVE YOU SHOULD TAKE KATHERINE WITH YOU,” Zordon said.
“But that’s too dangerous Zordon, Vile is going to be after me once he figures out what I’m up to,” Billy replied.
“YES, BUT I HAVE REASON TO BELIEVE THAT AN ATTACK IS BEING PLANNED ON THE COMMAND CENTER. WE WILL BE INVESTIGATING AND THEN MOVING THE COMMAND CENTER TO A LOWER LEVEL OF DEFENSE THAT I HAVE BEEN PLANNING, KNOWING THAT THIS DAY WOULD COME,” Zordon said.
Billy nodded and took Kat’s hand, as they were teleported to the Desert of Despair.
“Now remember, once we set the implosion device off, we grab the power coins and the Kitty girl and scram,” Goldar said.
“Yep, I gotcha Goldie. Dad’s gonna be so proud when we blow the command center sky high!” Rito said.
“Shut up bone bag!” Goldar yelled.
“Hey!” called a childish voice.
“Uh oh, it’s the power pipsqueaks!” Rito said. Goldar quickly activated the device and he and Rito teleported out of there.
“Alpha! Rito and Goldar set off the implosion device!” Tommy called into his communicator.
“Hang on rangers, I’m teleporting it to the sun,” Alpha said. The implosion device was teleported away and the disaster was adverted.
“I am not teleporting you back rangers, Zordon and I have a surprise for all of you,” Alpha said excitedly.
Kat and Billy arrived in the desert of despair. The eerie hollering sent a cold chill up Kat’s spine, causing her to cling to Billy’s arm. He gently squeezed her hand, as they started their journey toward Ninjor’s temple.
After about an hour of walking, Billy could see the distinct rock formation they were looking for in the distance. Not noticing her feet, Kat kicked a round rock with her foot, as they trekked through the desert. Suddenly, a circle of fire broke out around them. Kat screamed, but followed her love as they hurdled over the flames.
“We’re getting close, come on,” Billy urged. Kat nodded and followed him. Billy and Kat almost jogged to the strange rock formation. They finally reached it and stopped to take in their surroundings.
“The temple is inside,” Billy said.
“What are we waiting for?” Kat asked with a smile. Suddenly, a hoard of Tengus appeared around them.
“I knew that was going to happen,” Billy commented dryly. The wolf knew that their best chance was to flee for the entrance to the temple. He knew that if he stayed to fight the Tengus, it would allow Vile to snatch Kat, and he wasn’t about to let that happen. Billy side-kicked a Tengu out of their path and bolted off for the entrance crevice with Kat. They made it inside, leaving the Tengus squawking madly outside.
“That was close,” Kat said, as she and Billy leaned on each other, attempting to catch their breath.
“Come on,” Billy said, as he pulled her through the invisible vortex.
“No, I won’t allow it!” Ninjor said vehemently to the hologram message that Dulcea was sending him.
“Ninjor...why must you be so stubborn?” Dulcea said.
“Dulcea, the power coins have always been confined to six colors and six only!” Ninjor replied.
“Yes I know that Ninjor, but there is nothing against having two rangers of one color. Think of the possibilities of a ranger team with two wolves,” Dulcea said.
“Seven rangers would be quite an asset, I agree, but I will not allow it. I allowed it once, centuries ago, but not again,” Ninjor said.
“If you remember correctly, they were wolves as well,” Dulcea reminded.
“Yes, a stubborn animal. Lupis himself has pushed you to do this hasn’t he?” NInjor asked.
“Yes, and you know better than to disagree with a spirit animal, especially the wolf,” Dulcea said.
“Ninjor! It’s me Billy!” he called into Ninjor’s gate.
“Come young wolves, we have much to discuss,” Ninjor said. Kat and Billy exchanged glances and followed Ninjor as he led them into his garden.
“Ninjor, we need your help to bring the earth back to its correct time,” Billy said.
“Yes, normally it would require my help. But you will have all you need with what I am about to give Katherine. Evil is flocking to earth rampantly, so the spirit animals have upgraded the Ninjetti powers. You won’t see any difference in your suit, but you feel it in the power. Also, once the other rangers are full grown again, I will present you with upgraded weapons. But first, it is time to add another piece to the ranger team,” Ninjor said.
Light blue light swirled around Kat and encased her in it.
“Katherine, the wolf protects you as it does Billy. Though the power coins are confined to six colors, there are exceptions. And this case is one. Katherine, embrace the wolf spirit and become one with him. Take your place as a ranger in the army of light next to your beloved!” Ninjor called.
“I am the wolf, cunning and swift,” Kat called out, as the sky blue light bathed her and clothed her in a sky blue Ninjetti uniform with the emblem of the wolf on her chest. Billy could only stare at the woman he loved in awe. The light subsided and she smiled brightly.
“Seven coins will be all you need to reverse the effects of the orb of doom,” Ninjor stated.
“This is great! But first, we need to take care of the Tengu menace outside the temple,” Billy said. Kat nodded.
“Ready for your first fight as a power ranger?” Billy asked her.
“More than ready. Let’s go kick some tail feathers,” Kat said happily.
“It’s Morphin Time!” Billy called.
“Blue Wolf!” Kat and Billy called simultaneously. Kat’s ranger form looked like Kimberly’s, only it was a pretty sky blue color. Her helmet was sky blue, but an exact replica of Billy’s.
‘Oh man, Kat in spandex,’ Billy thought to himself, sure that he had the goofiest grin on under his helmet. He shook the thought away, as the two rangers went to take care of the Tengus.
Master Vile seethed angrily as he watched the two blue rangers send his Tengus packing.
“Another ranger! Now that traitorous Kitty Kat is a ranger too! I have a headache!” Rita screamed.
“Shut up Rita!” Zedd yelled, as he covered his auditory receptors.
Kat and Billy arrived back in what used to be the command center. But they looked around in awe at this new place.
“This is incredible,” Billy said.
“Hey guys! Welcome the power chamber!” Tommy said.
“Whoa! Where did you get ranger powers Kat?” Adam asked. The wolves exchanged glances and then told the story.
“Two blue rangers?” Rocky asked.
“This is so cool!” Kim said.
“Yeah, but we still need to fix Angel Grove,” Aisha said. As Aisha said that, Kat handed her new power coin to Billy, and he placed the seven coins in the device.
“Ready to be seventeen again?” Billy asked.
“Finally!” the young rangers chorused.
Billy activated the device and it worked its magic. The world stopped spinning and resumed its correct place and rotation in the future. The earth shook slightly, as the effects of the orb of doom were reversed.
“NO! I can’t believe this!!!! My perfect plan was ruined by the brainy blue punk! HE will pay!!!!” Vile yelled angrily.
Suddenly, the moon palace shook violently. A mechanical pair appeared in the throne room uninvited.
“Mondo and Machina. What in blazes are you doing here?” Vile asked.
“We have come to conquer that pathetic mud ball called Earth in the name of the Machine Empire. The Machine Empire is in control now,” Mondo announced.
“Not true Mondo. I have no intention of leaving the Earth,” Vile replied.
“Daddy is still stuck on that stupid human girl,” Rita snickered.
“Katherine will be mine, but the one they call Billy must be made to pay,” Vile replied angrily.
“Ooh..sounds like a challenge my dear,” Machina told her husband.
“Yes, it would be interesting to compete for control and domination. All right, you may stay as long as you don’t get in my way,” Mondo said.
“And you had better not get in mine bolt brain,” Vile replied.
Billy pulled himself off the floor and helped Katherine up.
“All right! We’re back!” Rocky said, as he conveniently bumped his head on a console while standing up.
“Yes, no more being ten,” Kim said.
“I hear that,” Aisha replied.
“It’s good to have you guys back,” Billy said.
“YES IT IS RANGERS, BUT WE HAVE ANOTHER PRESSING MATTER. I HAVE JUST DISCOVERED THAT THE MACHINE EMPIRE HAS COME TO EARTH. THEY TOO WISH TO CONQUER THE EARTH, AND ARE VERY POWERFUL. YOU MUST RECEIVE YOUR WEAPONS UPGRADE FROM NINJOR NOW,” Zordon said.
“I’m here rangers,” Ninjor said, as he teleported in.
“Tommy, I return a stronger Saba to you,” Ninjor said.
“Hello white ranger,” Saba said.
“Hey buddy,” Tommy replied.
“Adam, the frog axe is your new weapon. Though it looks the same as your power axe, it is much more powerful,” Adam nodded gratefully.
“Kimberly, the crane bow is yours. The arrows are heat seeking and will lock onto their target,” Kim nodded.
“Aisha, the bear claws are yours. They are much like your daggers, but the fierce power of the bear is instilled within them,” Aisha nodded with a smile.
“Rocky, the ape sword is yours. Its blade is powerful and will aide you well,” Rocky nodded.
“Billy, the wolf lance is yours. The power of the wolf is instilled within this weapon,” Billy nodded.
“And finally Katherine, your weapon is the wolf whip. It shares the power of the wolf with Billy and shall aide you well,” Kat nodded.
“RANGERS, MONDO HAS SENT DOWN THE COGS, HIS VERSION OF TENGUS. I BELIEVE HE IS TESTING YOUR ABILITIES. YOU MUST GO NOW AND STOP THEIR ATTACK,” Zordon said.
“All right guys, It’s Morphin Time!” Tommy called.
“White Falcon!” Tommy called.
“Black Frog!” Adam called.
“Pink Crane!” Kim called.
“Yellow Bear!” Aisha called.
“Red Ape!” Rocky called.
“Blue Wolf!” Kat and Billy called.
“Metallic Armor, power up!” they called, before teleporting to the park.
With their new weapons and upgraded powers, the rangers were able to end the cog menace. But they realized that the strength of the cogs was unlike anything they had ever faced before. It would truly take their all to keep Mondo, Vile, Rita, and Zedd at bay. But this did not overshadow their confidence, for they knew that the army of light would prevail against the army of darkness.
“It seems that I have underestimated those children. But no matter, they will fall to me, for I possess powers far stronger than they do,” Mondo said.
“Maybe machine breath, but those humans always seem to win. Their emotions are easy to manipulate, but they also draw strength off those emotions,” Vile retorted.
“Do not worry about their puny emotions, for they will not interfere with their final destruction,” Mondo stated.
Just a day,
Just an ordinary day.
Just tryin to get by.
Just a boy,
Just an ordinary boy.
But he was looking towards the sky.
And as he asked if I would come along
I started to realize-
That everyday you find Just what he's looking for,
Like a shooting star he shines.
He said take my hand,
Live while you can
Don't you see your dreams are right in the palm of your hand
“Billy, where are taking me?” a blindfolded Kat asked.
“You’ll see,” Billy said, as he led by the hand. Billy was taking her to Angel Cove to watch the sunset. Angel Cove was a beautiful part of the lake surrounded by three mountains, leaving a small body of water and a beach. Billy took the blindfolded off and revealed the site to Kat. She gasped at the beautiful site of the sunset, which illuminated the entire cove in red and orange hues.
And as he spoke,
he spoke ordinary words
Although they did not feel
For I felt what I had not felt before
You'd swear those words could heal.
And I as looked up into those eyes
His vision borrows mine.
And to know he's no stranger,
For I feel I've held him for all of time.
And he said take my hand,
Live while you can
And if we walk now we will divide and conquer this land.
Don't you see your dreams are right in the palm of your hand
Right in the palm of your hand
“Billy, what is this place? It’s absolutely beautiful,” Kat breathed. Billy wrapped his arms around her waist from behind and brought his lips to her ear.
“It is rather romantic, isn’t it?” the wolf whispered. Kat beamed and turned in his embrace to kiss him fully.
“I can’t believe that I’m actually a ranger,” Kat said.
“You make an amazing ranger,” Billy replied.
“I hope I will,” Kat said.
“You already are an amazing ranger. And you look really amazing in spandex,” Billy said, with a blush. Kat grinned.
“Do I now?” Kat asked, as she cuddled close to him. They watched the sunset, before heading back for a moonlight walk in the park.
Please come with me,
See what I see.
Touch the stars for time will not flee.
Time will not flee.
Can you be
Just a dream, just an ordinary dream.
As I wake in bed
And the boy, that boy, that ordinary boy.
Or was it all in my head?
Did he asked if I would come along
It all seemed so real.
But as I looked to the door,
I saw that boy standing there with a deal.
And he said he my take my hand,
Live while you can,
Don't you see your dreams are right in the palm of your hand
Right in the palm of your hand Right in the palm of your hand
They arrived at Kat’s house and knew their night had to end. Billy gave her a final kiss.
“Good night angel girl,” Billy said. Kat smiled.
“Good night sweet wolf,” Kat replied with a final kiss, before parting from him for the night.
Just a day, just an ordinary day
Just tryin to get by. Just a boy,
Just an ordinary boy.
But he was looking to the sky.
