Dreams of a Cat and a Wolf

Chapter 3: As Long As You Loved Me

Kat woke up with determination lining her face. She gave a longing gaze toward Billy. Nothing was going to stop her from breaking the spell and reviving her beloved. She still had twenty-four hours to free Billy, but she also had to attend school.

Kat cleaned up and headed for school. She was worried that she wouldn’t see Billy later that night, because it was no longer the weekend, and she had to sleep in her own house. She had told her parents she was spending the weekend with Aisha and Kim. They had bought it, glad that she was making friends. But Billy had assured her that no matter where she was, they would meet in their dreams.

Kat sat through school that day, attempting to pay attention to her teachers, but failing miserably. She couldn’t get her mind off Billy and finding a way to free him. Okay, so she was thinking more about him than anything. She was pining over him like a silly little girl, but it sure made her feel good. It made her feel alive and made her forget the past two months as Rita’s slave. She only hoped that the others were also trying to free him.

That day after school, the five rangers teleported to the command center. They had 24 hours to find a way to save Billy and Angel Grove.

“Zordon, there has to be something we can do,” Kimberly said.

“ALPHA AND I WERE CLOSE TO BREAKING THROUGH TO ZEDD’S DARK DIMENSION, BUT ZEDD MUST HAVE SENSED OUR INTENTIONS. HE HAS MOVED BILLY OUT OF OUR REACH AGAIN. I’M SORRY RANGERS, BUT A CHOICE MUST BE MADE. BILLY’S LIFE FORCE IS ALREADY TOO WEAK FOR OUR SENSORS TO DETECT ANYMORE,” Zordon said with a sad heart.

Tommy looked at the distraught faces of his team and spoke with a heavy heart.

“Guys, I know you don’t want to here this, but we’re going to have to choose Angel Grove over Billy,” Tommy said sadly.

“No, we can’t do that! He’s one of us, he’s our friend,” Kim cried. Tommy hugged her.

“I know this is hard Kim, but would Billy want us to save him over Angel Grove?” Tommy asked her. Kim lowered her head in defeat. She knew that he was right.

Katherine teleported to the moon palace in her cat form. She caught site of Rita wandering the palace. She quietly followed the empress down the narrow corridor. They entered a room, and in the center was a small chest. Rita opened the chest and clutched the blue power coin. She concealed it in her hand and returned to the throne room. Kat changed back

“No, how am I supposed to get the power coin if it’s in Rita’s clutches?” Kat wondered.

“Zeddy, I’ve decided to keep the blue coin with me just in case one of those ranger rats tries to get up here and steal it,” Rita said.

“Very good my buttercup,” Zedd replied.

“In loving memory of the blue ranger, I am sending down my wolf man monster,” Zedd said, as he zapped a real wolf from the Angel Grove zoo and transformed it into his desired creation. Zedd let the monster loose on Angel Grove.

~*~*~*

The alarm in the command center sounded.

“What now?” Rocky asked irritably.

“RANGERS, OBSERVE THE VIEWING GLOBE. THIS IS LORD ZEDD’S WOLFMAN MONSTER. YOU MUST STOP IT,” Zordon said.

“It’s Morphin Time!” Tommy called.

“White Ranger Power!” Tommy called.

“Black Ranger Power!” Adam called.

“Pink Ranger Power!” Kimberly called.

“Yellow Ranger Power!” Aisha called.

“Red Ranger Power!” Rocky called.

You'll come calling, slowly crawling
Attitude defined
Take and conquer, is your honor
Weak of soul and mind

The rangers were met by a hoard of Tengus. They fought the Tengus off and started on the monster. But the powerful monster was pretty much batting them away like they were nothing.

“Time to call the power cannon!” Tommy called. The power cannon appeared and the rangers opened fire on the Wolfman monster.

Call on the five
Keep hope alive

“Make our monster grow!” Rita and Zedd yelled, as they crossed their staffs.

“We still don’t have control of the Shogun zords!” Aisha exclaimed.

“I’ve been studying up on it, and I might be able to turn control over to us. But I need Aisha’s help and I have to go to Billy’s lab,” Adam said.

“Go, we’ll buy some time,” Tommy said.

Call the 5-4-1
Anytime you say you want us
Call the 5-4-1
Every time you say you need us
Call the 5-4-1

Anytime you say you want us
Call the 5-4-1
Every time you say you need us

Adam and Aisha teleported to Billy’s lab. Adam frantically skimmed through Billy’s notes on rerouting. Together, Adam and Aisha constructed a device to override the system and turn power over to them.

“It’s not the quality that Billy could do, but it should work,” Adam said.

“We did our best, now let’s go make Billy proud,” Aisha said, as she patted his shoulder. The yellow and black rangers returned to the battlefield in streams of teleportation.

5-4-1
5-4-1
5-4-1
5-4-1
Go!

“We need Shogun Zord Power now!” the rangers called simultaneously.

“Black Shogun Zord Power Up!” Adam called.

“Blue Shogun Zord Power Up!” Kim called.

“Yellow Shogun Zord Power Up!” Aisha called.

“Red Shogun Zord Power Up!” Rocky called.

“White Shogun Zord Power Up!” Tommy called.

Adam installed the device and rebooted the system.

“Adam, we’ve got control!” Rocky exclaimed.

“Good job guys!” Kim called.

Call the 5-4-1
Anytime you say you want us
Call the 5-4-1
Every time you say you need us
Call the 5-4-1
Anytime you say you want us
Call the 5-4-1
Every time you say you need us

The rangers formed the Shogun Megazord and destroyed the monster.

Suddenly, Zedd’s image appeared before the rangers.

“You may have destroyed my monster, but it is time for you to make your choice,” Zedd ordered.

“We still have a day!” Kim argued.

“Well, it won’t matter much, and I demand an answer now!” Zedd declared.

“What will it be? The blue ranger or Angel Grove?” Zedd asked.

“Billy is our friend and teammate, but I know that he would not want us to save him at Angel Grove’s expense,” Tommy began.

“In Billy’s name, we choose Angel Grove,” Kim finished.

“Well, then I guess the blue ranger will remain mine forever!” Zedd yelled, before his image disappeared.

~*~*~*

“Zeddy! What are we going to do with the blue ranger?” Rita asked.

“We’ll keep him in our possession. His sophisticated mind could prove to be useful someday,” Zedd replied.

“Those rangers are so miserable, because they sacrificed their precious Billy,” Rita laughed.

“What will you do with the blue ranger empress?” Kat asked loyally.

“After we no longer have a use for him, we can cast him into the sea of sorrows with his buddy Ninjor!” Rita exclaimed.

“You are brilliant my dear!” Zedd told her.

“Now scat like a good little kitty,” Rita ordered. Kat obeyed and teleported home for the night. The depressed Kat flopped down on her bed, and gladly let sleep take over.

~*~*~*

Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine

I'm leaving my life in your hands

People say I'm crazy and that I am blind

Risking it all in a glance

“Hey beautiful,” Billy greeted.

“Hey yourself handsome,” Kat replied. They kissed passionately and longingly.

Kat broke the kiss and they sat down together.

“Rita has your power coin, I couldn’t get to it. And the rangers were forced to pick Angel Grove over you,” Kat said sadly.

“We’ll find another way. They made the correct choice,” Billy replied.

How you got me blind is still a mystery

I can't get you out of my head

Don't care what is written in your history

As long as you're here with me

“This is all my fault Billy! It’s because of me that you’re here!” Kat exclaimed.

“It’s not your fault. It’s Rita and Zedd, please don’t blame yourself,” Billy pleaded. He pulled Kat close and kissed her again, this time with a heated need.

I don't care who you are

Where you're from

What you did As long as you love me

Who you are

Where you're from

Don't care what you did

As long as you love me

“The strength of Rita’s spell becomes less and less everyday,” Kat told him.

“I knew that you could do it,” Billy replied.

“It’s all thanks to you. I can’t keep my mind off you,” Kat said with a smile.

“I’ve got you on the brain,” Billy replied, as he kissed her again. Billy began to nibble at her neck, making her purr. Kat snuggled closer to him and began exploring his shoulders and chest with her hands.

Every little thing that you have said and done

Feels like it's deep within me

Doesn't really matter if you're on the run

It seems like we're meant to be

~*~*~*

“Zeddy! The blue ranger’s vitals are becoming more stable everyday! How is that possible?!” Rita screeched.

“He should be getting weaker. Have Finster assess the problem,” Zedd ordered.

~*~*~*

I don't care who you are

Where you're from

What you did

As long as you love me

Who you are

Where you're from

Don't care what you did

As long as you love me

The intense kiss was broke as they noticed things were becoming hazy around them.

“I love you Kat, please be careful, I couldn’t bear it if anything happened to you,” Billy said.

“I will, and I love you too Billy,”

I've tried to hide it so that no one knows

But I guess it shows

When you look into my eyes

What you did and where you're comin' from

I don't care, as long as you love me, baby

“I hope that Rita doesn’t try to take control again,” Kat said.

“You can fight her Kat. You’re strong, but always know that I’ll love you no matter what,” Billy told her.

“If she tries to take over me again, I can just imagine that you’re there holding me in your arms,” Kat said.

“I’ll always be there for you,” Billy replied, as he pulled her into a final kiss before they lost site of each other once again.

I don't care who you are

Where you're from

What you did

As long as you love me

Who you are

Where you're from

Don't care what you did

As long as you love me
