Dreams of a Cat and a Wolf

Chapter 5: God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You

By Andrea McPherren

The rangers arrived at the juice bar and sat down at their usual table. Each of them was still amazed by Billy and Kat’s story. Kimberly was amazed that Kat had been under Rita’s spell and they hadn’t even known it. She had sensed that Kat liked Tommy when they had first met. She had felt uneasy around Kat, though she completely trusted her white knight. But it seemed that whatever momentary attraction Kat possessed toward Tommy was now completely overshadowed by her new love for Billy. She was extremely happy for her best friend. But she just hoped that the couple’s love could survive whatever Rita and Zedd decided to throw at them.

The others were a little dumbfounded by everything, but all in all they were happy for the Cat and the Wolf.

~*~*~*

“Zeddy! We need a plan to capture that traitorous girl!: Rita screamed.

“Yes I know Rita! You need not scream in my ear!” Zedd yelled back.

“Well, we can’t just sit around here and do nothing!” Rita yelled. But before Zedd could get a word in, Rita spoke again.

“I’ve got it! I’ve got it! We tell the rangers that either they hand over Kitty Kat or say goodbye to Ninjor and the Falconzord!” Rita said.

“Good, it looks like Katherine and her little wolfy boy are at the lake together. How sweet,” Zedd said, using his infrared vision to view the Earth.

“I’ll deliver the message myself!” Rita cackled, as she transported herself to Earth.

~*~*~*

Can this be true, tell me can this be real

How can I put into words what I feel

My life was complete, I thought I was whole

Why do I feel like I'm losing control

Billy and Kat walked along the lake hand in hand. Billy’s brows were knitted in worry. Kat saw this and stopped.

“Billy, I don’t like to see you worry. As long as I’m with you, I will be fine,” Kat reassured.

“Kat, Rita and Zedd aren’t going to leave us alone. I’m just worried about them getting to you,” Billy said. Kat consoled him with a soft, loving kiss to the lips.

Suddenly, a rude voice interrupted them.

“You should be worried blue ranger, because your Kitty Kat belongs to me!” Rita said. Billy went into a defensive stance in front of Kat.

“I just came to deliver this message. I think you’ll be quite interested in what it has to say,” Rita said, as she dropped the scroll and then disappeared. Billy picked up the scroll and he and Kat read the message.

“Turn Katherine over to us at dusk or lose Ninjor and the Falconzord when we throw them into the sea of sorrows,” Billy read. Katherine lowered her head and forced the tears back.

“Kat, I’m not going to let them have you. We’ll find some other way,” Billy said. Kat turned to him, not being able to hide her tears anymore.

“No Billy, I’ll turn myself over to them. The rangers need Ninjor and the Falconzord more than they need me,” Kat replied.

“Kat, you are the most important thing in my life. If I don’t have you, then you might as well put me back in that coma, because my life isn’t worth living without you,” Billy said, as he lifted her chin and kissed her lips.

I never thought that love could feel like this

Then you changed my world with just one kiss

How can it be that right here with me

There's an angel, it's a miracle

“What are we going to do?” Kat asked.

“We’ll figure out something,” Billy said, as he put his arm around her waist and they began walking back to the youth center.

~*~*~*

Back at the youth center, Billy and Kat let Tommy and the others read the message that Rita had left for them.

“If we lose Ninjor and the Falconzord, the ninja zords will be useless,” Tommy said.

“But we can’t let them have Kat,” Billy stated adamantly. He stomach knotted as he thought about what Kat would go through if Rita and Zedd got a hold of her again. The thought of her being harmed in anyway made the young genius’ blood boil. Kat touched his hand.

“Billy, you can’t ignore that Ninjor and the Falconzord are more important than I am. No matter what, the rangers have to choose the earth over an individual, just like they did when you were trapped. This situation is no different,” Kat said, as she looked deep into his emerald eyes.

Your love is like a river Peaceful and deep

Your soul is like a secret that I never could keep

When I look into your eyes I know that it's true

God must have spent a little more time on you

Oh a little more time, yes he did baby

“I won’t let them take you Kat,” Billy said, as he rushed out of the youth center, headed for his lab.

Kat was about to go after him, but Kimberly stopped her.

“Give him some time,” she said. Kat nodded and sat back down.

~*~*~*

Dusk was approaching quickly. Billy had called Katherine and the rangers and told them to meet him in the park.

“There he is!” Kat called, as she ran to him. Billy was holding a device, but that didn’t stop Katherine from pulling him into a tight hug. Billy smiled and hugged her back.

In all of creation, all things great and small

You are the one that surpasses them all

More precious than any diamond or pearl

They broke the mold when you came in this world

“Don’t run out on me like that again,” Kat scolded.

“I’m sorry, I just had to do something,” Billy said.

“What’s that?” Kat asked.

“It’s a force field generator. When Rita comes down to collect you, she’s going to get a big surprise when she can’t get to you. We’ll get Ninjor and keep you also,” Billy said.

“That’s our genius,” Kim said.

Suddenly, Rita, Rito, Goldar and the Tengus appeared.

“Time’s up kiddies!” Rito said. Kat kissed Billy deeply, before backing away behind he and the other rangers.

“Give us the girl!” Rita demanded.

“Ninjor first!” Tommy demanded. Rito dropped the blue jar and Rocky picked it up. He opened it and found it empty.

“It’s a trick!” Rocky said.

“Ninja Ranger Power Now!” Tommy called. The rangers transformed into Ninja form and began to fight the Tengus.

Tommy and the others distracted them, while Billy readied the device and kept a close eye on Katherine.

“Now Billy!” Tommy called. Billy activated the force field and encased Kat inside. Then Billy started fighting the Tengus with the other rangers.

“Get the girl!” Rita yelled.

The Tengus found out that they couldn’t get to Kat, but one found the device that was generating the force field. The Tengu picked it up and smashed it against a tree. The force field dissipated and Kat was left out in the open.

“Kat, get out of here! They destroyed the force field,” Billy called, as he struggled to break free from the Tengus. Kat was about to run, when Rito caught her arm.

“You’re coming with us girly!” Rito said.

“Let me go! Billy!” Kat called. Billy managed to break free and began running toward her. Rito used his laser eyes and shot Billy down.

“Billy!” Kat called. Billy struggled to get back up, but the villains disappeared with Kat in tow.

The other helped Billy up and teleported to the command center.

~*~*~*

Billy paced frantically back and forth between consoles trying to locate Kat.

And I'm trying hard to figure out

Just how I ever did without

The warmth of your smile, the heart of a child

That's deep inside and leaves me purified

“Billy, you need to calm down,” Adam advised.

“I’ve got to get her out of there guys. They’re really mad at Kat and they’re going to hurt her! I can’t let that happen!” Billy said.

“Zordon, is there anything we can do?” Kimberly asked.

“Katherine must be saved, but getting to her will be the difficult part. Zedd has masked her signal from us,” Zordon reported. Billy slammed his fists on the console.

“Zordon, please let me go up there,” Billy said.

“I’M SORRY BILLY, BUT YOU MUST REMAIN HERE. WE WILL FIND A WAY TO GET KATHERINE BACK, BUT WE CANNOT RISK YOU FALLING INTO ZEDD AND RITA’S CLUTCHES AGAIN,” Zordon said. Billy lowered his head. Zordon’s answer was not the one that he wanted to hear.

~*~*~*

Kat shivered as she sat in the cold, dark prison cell. Rito was guarding her and she could hear Rita and Zedd’s villainous cackles in the background.

‘I have to get out of here,’ Kat thought to herself.

“Excuse me, could you please tell me what they’re going to do with me?” Kat asked Rito.

“Well, if you must know, they’re going to throw you into the sea of sorrows with that Ninjor guy,” Rito said, as he tried to work the kink in his neck out.

“I could help with that, but you’ll have to come closer,” Kat said.

“Okay, but no funny stuff,” Rito said. Kat winced as she put her hands through the bars and began rubbing Rito’s shoulders, which disgusted her to no end.

“Oh yea, that’s the spot,” Rito said. Soon Rito Revolto was fast asleep.

“Eww..,” Kat said, as she grabbed the keys out of Rito’s hand. She unlocked the cell and quietly slipped into the corridors.

Rita and Zedd were busy plotting plans to destroy the rangers, when the palace began to shake violently. Dark shadows and stormy clouds were cast over the earth, as a skull shaped ship arrived on the moon. A particularly horrid creature appeared in Zedd and Rita’s throne room.

“Goldar! Seize that intruder!” Zedd ordered.

“You will seize nothing,” the creature ordered.

“Oh my gosh,” Rita said.

“Do you know him Rita?” Zedd asked.

“Zeddy, meet Master Vile, my father,” Rita said.

“Rita, why did you have to marry Lord Zedd. You could have done so much better,” Vile said.

“What?!” Zedd exclaimed.

“Shut your hole, Master Vile is in control now,” Vile said.

Kat slipped into the throne room. She had heard everything about Rita’s father and knew that this meant big trouble for the rangers. She had to get Ninjor and get out of here. She transformed herself into a cat and gracefully toppled Ninjor’s jar off its pedestal. The jar shattered and Ninjor was released. Kat transformed back into her normal self.

“Oh no, stupid girl! You’ll pay for that!” Rita yelled.

“No Rita, I’m quite done with you. I’ll never let you control me again and the power rangers will stop your evil plans!” Kat said.

“Well said young one, now let’s high tail it out of here. Bye now!” Ninjor said, as he teleported both of them out of the moon palace.

“NO! How can this be happening!” Rita screamed. Master Vile just watched what had happen with amazement. That young human girl had single handedly spoiled Rita and Zedd’s plans. He was quite taken by this girl.

“Father! Did you just see what happened?” Rita yelled.

“Yes Rita, that girl will make a wonderful bride for me,” Vile said.
“WHAT?!” Rita and Zedd yelled.

“I have never been taken with anyone like I have with her. She has all the potential to become my queen. She can be made evil again and her beauty is unrivaled. Plus, her powers to become a cat will also be quite useful,” Vile said.

“Excuse me, but just how are you going to get her to marry a nasty old mutant like you?” Zedd wondered.

“I will offer her anything her heart desires. Worlds will be but bubbles in her collection. She will have any riches that she desires. What woman would turn that down?” Vile asked.

“Miss goody-two shoes would,” Rita replied.

“Do not worry daughter, I will make Katherine mine,” Vile assured.

~*~*~*

“Rangers, it is as I feared. Master Vile, Rita’s father has arrived on the moon,” Zordon reported.

“Rita’s father?! Man, that is some family tree,” Rocky said.

“And Kat is still up there,” Billy said. Suddenly, Ninjor and Kat appeared in the command center. Billy’s eyes lit up and locked with hers. Billy went to her and wrapped her in his arms.

Your love is like a river Peaceful and deep

Your soul is like a secret that I never could keep

When I look into your eyes I know that it's true

God must have spent a little more time on you

On you... Yes he did baby

“Miss me?” Kat asked with a giggle.

“You have no idea. You freed Ninjor?” Billy asked.

“Yep, but this Master Vile guy that is supposedly Rita’s father just arrived on the moon. And he doesn’t look like a push over,” Kat said.

“Zordon just told us about him. We’ve got our work cut out for us,” Tommy said.

“Master Vile is truly a menace that will not be easily defeated,” Ninjor said.

“RANGERS, I SUGGEST THAT YOU GET SOME REST. I FEAR THAT IT WILL NOT BE LONG BEFORE VILE LAUNCHES AN ATTACK ,” Zordon advised. The rangers agreed and teleported out.

Billy and Kat reached Kat’s front door.

I never thought that love could feel like this

Then you changed my world with just one kiss

How can it be that right here with me

There's an angel, it's a miracle

“Guess this is good night,” Billy said.

“Yea, unfortunately. Thanks for saving me today,” Kat said.

“What? I didn’t do anything. You saved yourself,” Billy said.

“And it was your strength and your love that helped me. I couldn’t have done it without that,” Kat replied. Billy blushed under her warm gaze.

“I’m just glad that you weren’t hurt,” Billy said.

“I love you Billy,” Kat said.

“I love you too Kat,” Billy replied, as their lips came together in a passionate kiss that had love to defeat all evil. Kat went inside and Billy teleported home.

Your love is like a river Peaceful and deep

Your soul is like a secret that I never could keep

When I look into your eyes I know that it's true

God must have spent a little more time on you

On you...

God must have spent a little more time on you

A little more time on you, oh

~*~*~*

Master Vile watched the two embrace.

“Enjoy your time with her blue ranger, because soon she will be mine,” Vile said, as he turned his attention to focus on Kat.

AN: Hope you liked it! In the next chapter, Master Vile attacks. With the rangers busy fighting, he sets out to convince Kat to become his queen. All this and more in the next chapter! Thanks for reading and please review! Later!
