I overslept the following morning, and when I finally woke up, I saw that Jason had texted me. He told me that they were going to Billy’s because Willy, a really good friend of ours, had an invention he wanted to show the gang, and that he wanted me to meet them at the Youth Center. I finally decided to get up and get dressed. When I headed downstairs, I heard my dad talking outside. When I got close enough, I realized that he was talking to my mom. When I was little, my mom was murdered. The police never caught the man that did it, but I know that one day, he’ll get what’s coming to him.
“Hey dad.” I said as I walked up to him.
“Hey baby girl.” my dad said back.
We just hugged each other and I knew that in that moment, everything felt right. I knew that my dad had something else to say, but didn’t know how.
“Dad, is everything alright?” I asked as we pulled apart.
“I think it’s time that I gave you this.” my dad replied as he handed me a black box.
When I opened the box, I saw the most beautiful locket. It was a heart shaped locket with a flower, which my dad told me was called Forget Me Not, in the center of it. When I opened it, I saw a picture of me and my mom on one side, and on the other side was a quote that my mom always said, “I will always love you, and we will be together again.” I hugged my dad again, and both of us just started crying.
“She wanted to give this to you when you were older, and I thought that now would be a good time.” my dad whispered to me as he rocked me back and forth.
“Thank you dad. This means the world to me.” I said back after a few minutes.
My dad and I talked for a few more minutes before he told me to go hang with my friends. I asked him if he was sure and he told me to go ahead, that he would be fine. I hugged him again, and then left to the Youth Center. I met up with the gang as soon as I got there. I was happy to see them, and they were happy to see me. Jason told me all about Willy’s invention, and I was impressed. What I wasn’t impressed with was Bulk and Skull coming in and causing trouble, but what can you expect from bullies. Jason, Zack, and Billy handled them and what was funny, was that Bulk and Skull ended up getting a make-over, and they looked real funny as girls. Even after all, the professor told Willy that he was disqualified. Billy, Jason, and Zack went after him while I stayed with Kimberly and Trini.
“That’s a beautiful necklace. Where did you get it?” Trini asked as her and Kimberly looked at my locket.
“Thank you, and it’s a locket from my mom. My dad gave it to me this morning.” I replied with a sad smile.
Kimberly and Trini just hugged me because they knew the whole story, actually all of them do. I told them a few months after we met. They were very accepting and I couldn’t ask for better friends. We then decided to go join the boys in looking for Willy, but ended up at the Command Center, and I found out that Rita was responsible. I watched as the others morphed and went to save Willy.
Sometimes I hate that I can’t help them, but I know that I would only be a distraction. I know that Rita would use me against the others, and I don’t want that to happen, so I help out at the Command Center. After the battle, which the rangers won, we all went back to the Youth Center, and was met with a funny sight. Ernie and the professor were playing on Willy’s invention. The professor apologized to Willy and gave his invention first prize. We congratulated him and then laughed at Bulk and Skull as they came back wanting their clothes. Kimberly and Trini had other plans, and when they gave Bulk and Skull their clothes, they were shrunk and we all got a good laugh.
My day was pretty good, and I hope that my mom is proud of me. I miss her greatly, but I know that one day, my dad and I will see her again.
