    [GNR-SQ1] RG-01: Renny's a Kitsune?!

    Last Time on Power Rangers Shark Squadron:

    After a great Megazord battle in Australia, and nearing the Departure of the Dynamic Duo Rangers to their home dimension, Chip Lonewolf was helping his boyfriend, Renny Reinger, with some sort of problem, only to find out that he has somehow grown a fox tail. On this turn of events, Chip and Renny are both stunned by this challenging turn of events. What does destiny have in store for Renny and his boyfriend?

    Aquabase, Dreamtrail Dimension
    (Immediately after PRSS-40: Where Can My Sharky Be?)


    The sun was starting to rise on the surface of the ocean, as the Aquabase underwater remained rather dormant. Three of its inhabitants were camping near the INP at Mount Atlantis, and the rest were sleeping in their beds.

    Chip was slowly waking up, rubbing the uncovered back of his boyfriend, Renny Reinger, which was one of the most peaceful things that the redhead liked to do. What a cute body... no wonder I love him so much... though I really am starting to wonder why he has that tail, though...

    When he reached lower to gently examine the tailbone of the Archmage, he felt something surprising; there wasn't one tail... but two! Chip look under the covers to take a look, and saw that Renny had two fox-like tails, and was attached to the tailbone of his boyfriend, as if they have been a part of his body all his life.

    The Knight was shocked by this; he was wondering how this could be possible. After that moment of shock, he got out of bed to take a shower.

    An hour or so later, Renny woke up, and yawned, as he stood upright, though undressed. He then saw Chip sitting at the desk, writing a note to his fellow teammates. "Morning, Chippy," Renny smiled, swishing both his tails.

    Chip had finished, and let out a sigh, as he turned his attention to his boyfriend. "Renny, we are going to have to leave as soon as possible. We need to go on a journey of our own."

    Renny backed up a bit. "What is wrong, sweetheart?"

    Chip sighed, deciding not to tell Ren about the second tail. "Renny, we need to go to Crusader Mountain as soon as possible, and if we have to, we may need the Crimson Saw to be Dimensional Travel capable, and Cross Haven attack-proof."

    The sandy-blond teenager's eyes widened. "Are we leaving the team, Chip?"

    The Knight shook his head. "Heavens, no... we are just going to be inactive, that's all. They can call us back if it is an emergency." Chip then walked to Renny, and gave him a kiss. "Now get dressed, and gather your cloak and carpet, love; We need to leave right away."

    Once Renny ran off to gather his belongings, Chip sighed, as he just simply stood there. Something is not right with Renny, and I feel that I should get to the core of this... Sorry, guys; this is just something I have to do.

    Nearing Crusader Mountain

    Chip decided that it was better to fly by Carpet, as they neared the East Coast mountain INP. "We are close to Crusader Mountain, Chippy," Renny said.

    Chip nodded, as he said. "Land in front of the Mountain Resort if you can, love. And remember to keep your cloak on."

    Renny nodded. "Okay, Chippy."

    Crusaders Reach was actually quiet for a change, although there was local skiing going on over near the Solar Ski Resort. A light snow was falling, giving the mountain a nice new white coating to replace the older coating.

    Just as Chip and Renny were starting to land, a familiar wolf poked his nose around the corner of the ski lodge at the two, then quietly sneaked over and pressed his cold nose directly to the back of Chip's neck, saying, "BOO!"

    It was Apollo, the Red Lunar Crusader. The only Ranger that was actually a non-anthro talking wolf. And he apparently loved sticking his cold nose against flesh in an unexpected manner.

    Chip acked, as he turned around. "Oh, Hey Apollo! You scared me." He then chuckled. "It's been a mighty few months since I last seen a Lunar Ranger. And your nose is like an ice cube!"

    Renny giggled; the look on Chip's face was priceless when Apollo the Wolf stuck his nose on the back of his redhead boyfriend's neck.

    Apollo chuckled. "That means that I am healthy." Then he got serious. "We haven't seen a vacationing Power Ranger is quite a while. So when your flying carpet was spotted heading this way on the viewing screen, I quickly rushed up here to greet you guys." He glanced toward the mountain. "Auklivok just has to be up to something. He's been too quiet." Then he turned to look at the boys again and snuffled his nose at them. "Have either of you been wrestling with a canine? I smell a dog scent on your carpet."

    Chip sighed. "One of the reasons we came here, Apollo... I come to get Luna's guidance on something." He then looked to Renny, and nodded. "It is okay to take off your cloak, Renny, and conjure up some winter gear."

    Renny brought out his wand, and has cast two spells; one to remove and fold the cloak neatly, and another to make winter clothes appear on both he and Chip, and Snowboards to appear at their sides. The only thing that stuck out of the Renny was the two fox tails swishing.

    Chip sighed, as he turned Renny around to show Apollo the tails. "This is starting to worry me, Apollo. This appeared within a 24 hour span."

    Apollo hummed. "If I didn't know Steven, I would have said it was strange to see such on a human. Come, I will take you to where Luna is stationed at. She's not in the lodge; she's up on the summits checking on Justin. He is doing odd jobs for ALL of the Summit Lords for permission to be on the mountain. Maybe that is why Auklivok hasn't been active lately... he is watching to see how Justin fares."

    He then winked and said with a grin, "You know what the best part of being a Power Ranger wolf is? I can walk around naked and no one even blinks twice, but if someone like Sadistic Lisa tried that, everyone would say something." He laughed quietly and started off slowly toward the summits.

    Renny said, "What's going on, Chip? Why did you show him the tail?"

    Chip sighed, as he decided to tell the truth to Renny. "I can't keep this a secret from you Renny. You don't have a tail, you have two tails, and both of them... are that of a fox."

    "What?!" Renny's eyes widened, as he stopped in his tracks, and checked his rear end, and saw the two tails for himself... as plain as day. "What's going on, Chippy?"

    Chip hummed. "That is why we came here first; to see if we can get some answers, Renny. If it counts, those tails look rather cute on you." He winked. "Now come; we need to catch up with Apollo."

    Apollo wasn't going very quickly; just his normal stride. He could easily hear whatever anyone said within a mile, his hearing was that good. No super powers involved with that... he was simply a wolf.

    Soon, the three arrived up at what appeared to be a fire watch tower, and Apollo led the way up the stairs and into the large room at the top. Three sides had a never ending window that revealed all eleven summits very clearly. There was a central kitchenette with the smell of hot cocoa brewing... while a fireplace with a roaring warm fire heated the entire room nicely. Sitting on a mossy mound near one of the windows was Luna Grails, the team sponsor to the Lunar Crusaders... but more importantly, she was actually the Goddess of the Moon, Luna herself.

    Apollo said, "See? I told you I would lead you to her."

    Luna glanced over at the arrivals. "Apollo. How is my young wolf on this fine day?"

    Apollo grinned. "Just making people jump. Chip and Renny have come to see you." He then got serious again. "Renny has a problem of a near anal nature." He winked, though without the grin.

    Luna looked over Apollo's head at the two humans. "Oh my." She then stood up. "Is it a curse, Chip?"

    Chip sighed, as he brought the attention to the tails. "I just don't know if it is a curse or otherwise, Luna. This surprised me, and I don't know about incidents like this."

    Renny blinked, as he saw that his tails were still swishing. "They feel weird to me..."

    Luna hummed. "I suggested a curse because sometimes a Kitsune can exact revenge on interlopers by causing one of the interlopers to change into his species to replace a clan member who had been harmed, injured, or killed by the interlopers. The Shark Squadron nor Ivan Ooze's bunch hasn't plundered any tombs in Japan, China, or India lately, have they?"

    Apollo reared up, placing his paws on a window sill to see what Luna had been watching just moments before, but couldn't see Justin anywhere.

    Chip shook his head. "We haven't... the latest happenings was Ooze making convicts Psycho Rangers, and Owen disappearing, only to return with a few Dynamic Duo Ranger teams from another dimension."

    Renny nodded. "Nothing out of the ordinary for us... This was the first... I felt the discomfort after I separated from Royal Bronze yesterday."

    Luna hummed again. "Out of curiosity, Renny... just how old are you currently?"

    Apollo quietly muttered, "I don't see Justin anywhere. I sure hope he's okay. I did vouch for him and I don't want to see any harm come to him."

    Luna glanced over her shoulder. "Justin is currently inside Lord Mudslyde's Summit, Apollo." Then she refocused on Renny and Chip again.

    Apollo arched an eye. "Justin went in there? I better go fetch him some clothes later then... threads disintegrate in his cavern pools..."

    Renny blinked, as he told Luna his age. "I am only nineteen, Luna. Born in 1990."

    Chip was a bit red in the face; The thought of Justin losing his clothes were just as bad as thinking impure thoughts about his brother in the past.

    Luna said, "I am not an expert on Kitsune, Renny, but that is what it is that you seem to be turning into. I would suggest you go speak with various other public Kitsune and try to discover what is happening to you through those means. As Chip might remember... I am the expert on Lycanthropy. Were-Beasts, as it were. If you were becoming that, I could probably help you. But if you haven't disrupted any tombs nor harmed any natural kitsune, then perhaps there is another answer that I cannot fathom."

    Luna paced the floor for a bit then said, "Therefore, I would have to suggest Steven Wiley here in Valhalla; Delilah Ki'lin-ti in the Dreamtime Dimension; Stanley Thunder, also in the Dreamtime Dimension; Dan Chiang of the SunRaven Dimension and the Moravia Pocket Dimension; Kit Starbuck of the Nebula Dimension; and Reynard Larethian of the Corellon Dimension."

    Chip hummed. Going into SunRaven may mean going through the INP at Mount Atlantis. I would have to talk to Owen about that... "Thank you for your guidance, Luna. Where can we find Steven? Everything seems quiet around Crusader's Reach since our last visit."

    Renny grinned. "And I only came up here once to help rescue a friend." (See PRSS-21/22: Atlantean Prelude)

    Luna smiled. "Cold weather is not a Kitsune's forte, Chip. Steven is back at the Ski Lodge with Jason and Zack. There was a martial arts class going on last time I checked in on them." Jason and Zack... the MMPR Alumni Rangers, according to Valhalla terminology.

    Apollo said, "I can keep watch here, Luna, if you would like to escort the two back to the lodge."

    Luna said, "Very well. I know how much you care about Justin, Apollo. I keep wondering if you slept with him, except you won't tell if you have or haven't."

    She then turned to Chip and Renny, and opened a moon door directly from the tower to the ski lodge and led Chip and Renny through it. The lobby was just as Chip remembered it, though it felt rather lonely without Kelsey at the front desk. In fact, none of the Lunar Warriors were there at all. Only Justin seemed to be on the mountain... undergoing tasks for permission to be there. Then, Luna pointed Chip and Renny toward the Red Dragon Dojo entrance, as she departed to check on the highway side diner.

    Chip slowly looked around, before muttering, "The Lunar Warriors aren't here... seems so silent than when we were here last."

    Renny smiled. "Luna is a nice person, Chip."

    The Knight nodded. "Let's go to the Dojo, sweetheart." With that, he escorted Renny into the Red Dragon Dojo, making sure to bow (a reminder from Renny, who knew Martial Art customs, courtesy of Britton Carson) as they entered.

    Steven wasn't in a class, as he was on the sidelines sipping on a cup of tea and reading the fortunes of any students who wanted to try their luck with Steven's ability.

    Jason waved at Chip, with a smile, then returned to his current lesson with the student he was with. Zack was standing near the door, but to the left.

    Steven told the student sitting before him. "...and I see the Sparrow and the Crane, joining together to confront the Ox. What this tells me is that you will encounter an immovable force soon and to overcome this threat, you must remember what the Sparrow and the Crane have instructed for you to do in such cases." He smiled and handed the boy a fortune cookie, before glancing around the room again.

    That's when Steven saw Chip and Renny at the entrance. But he saw more, as well. Renny has two tails? But I thought he was human...

    Chip nodded and waved back to Jason, remembering reading about the Dragon Soul Rangers' accidental travel through time (PRDS-23). He then looked to Zack, and asked, "Is Steven available for us to talk to, Zack? It is about something that he would have a knowledge of."

    Renny simply waved at Steven, being polite in waiting.

    Steven closed his table and gathered up his supplies, then headed toward the exit where he confronted Chip and Renny. "Is this a honeymoon or a tarmoon? Only the Dragon and the Cat may say so and live. Come, Jason is busy with his class and we don't want to distract his students with one who is ultra-kawaii." He was referring to Renny, obviously, as he led the two back down the corridors of the ski lodge to his private quarters.

    Which oddly looked like a Chinese temple chamber.

    Steven put his supplies back into their proper places, bowed to a statue of a nine-tailed fox, then he took a seat on one of the many futons. "Please have a seat, my friends. I am honored that you came to see me. Though it is always a pleasure to see Renny."

    Renny smiled, his tails swishing happily. "It has been a few months since I have seen you, Steven." He then looked at his tails, and sighed. A mind of their own, I swear...

    Chip nodded, as he and his Archmage boyfriend sit down. "Renny is actually why we came here, Steven. Somehow, he seems to be turning into a Kitsune, judging by the way he's growing his tails."

    Steven said, "Please disrobe entirely, Renny. I want to examine your body in detail. If it is only the tails, then it may not be what you think. Otherwise, things are going to get tricky in the months to come." He then waited patiently and calmly.

    Renny took off all his clothes carefully, remembering to fold them, and set them aside, and when it came to the underwear, he took it off, and placed it on top of his folded clothes, being completely naked in front of Steven. "I am ready, Steven."

    Steven stood up and in a flash, he was totally kitsune himself, as he began to examine Renny all over, starting at the two tails, then studying the legs, feet, hands and palms, arms, torso, and finally the head.

    When he was done, he turned to Chip and said, "His ears will be next, followed by his feet and hands, in that order. Then will come the difficult part to handle... his nose and muzzle will grow out. For a human, that can be very painful. Then and only then will his genitals change, and lastly, he will grow fur all over his body. I have to surmise that the over excessive use of powerful magics have accelerated his internal structure and he is changing into his ancestral root species... which seems to be a Kitsune. But unlike Kitsune... Renny seems to be of a type that starts human and changes over time... much like Orion and Delilah do. Perhaps you should speak with them to find out how to properly handle these changes. But I will warn you now, Chip... Renny's life as a human is over with now that he has started to mutate into his root species. These changes would most likely have remained dormant or happened slowly, say when he reached manhood around 21 to 31 before he changed. But using that much magic has upset his internal balance, so he is changing right now, instead of later."

    Steven glanced to Renny. "You can get dressed now. Although at some point, your clothes won't fit right anymore. That is just a warning. Tails can hang down both pants legs without a problem. But once the rest start coming in..."

    He irked! "I forgot about the digitigrade legs! That will be very painful when that happens! You may even wish you could die rather than undergo that part! That is where you, Chip, will need to be there for him the most!"

    Renny was now scared, as he put his clothes back on, and kept the tails within the legs of his pants. He then sat down next to Chip.

    Chip nodded, as he said, "I am willing to help him with whatever challenge he has to go through. If I wasn't, what kind of boyfriend would I be?" He was reminded about what their Selachiian friend is going through. It was a lot.

    Steven said, "I can give Renny a charm that would stop the changes for a while, but stopping a flood with a dam meant for holding a pond is not always the best solution. At some point, the charm would fail and the changes would try to make up for lost time. And that could be more painful than simply changing gradually. If only we knew who your ancestral clan was... But alas, there isn't much I can do, save answer your questions, for those you may have." At that point, he poured a few cups of Chinese tea and served them to his guests, with fortune cookies.

    Renny held his tea in his hand, and took one sip of it. "Thank you, Steven." He then kept to his thoughts.

    Chip thanked Steven as well. "I am just curious. What is that statue that you were bowing to?"
    ________________________________________

    Steven smiled. "The founder of my family's clan back home in China, Wyuu-Lingh. That is another reason that it is important to know who your clan founder was, Renny. You must honor them for giving you the freedom to live your life now. But ancestry can never be forgotten nor hidden away. When you learn who your clan founder was, I would be honored to create a statue of your clan founder for your own private abode."

    Renny cracked a small smile. Steven was generous when he visited the Aquabase, and never thought he would have that much support from a friend. "Thank you, Steven. How would I be able to find out who my clan founder was?"

    Chip remembered looking over Lexington's shoulder a couple years ago when he was reading manga, and he remembered about the nine-tailed fox he saw once in one of the books. "The way of the Kitsune is inspiring."
    ________________________________________

    Steven smiled. "Your best way of finding out that information, Renny, is to ask someone who works for the Celestial Bureaucracy. And the only one I know in that position is Stanley Thunder. He's a Japanese Hengeyokai Rat who can appear human. Though he is often hanging out with the Tao Rangers in the Dreamtime Dimension."

    He then looked at Chip. "Each tail on a Kitsune is a physical ranking of his circles of magical power that he has mastered. A Kitsune who has not mastered the first rank, especially in Renny's case, is most likely going to appear totally human. But when they master the second rank, the two tails grow into place, as proof of their success."

    Chip blinked, as he said. "I think I have trained him too much. He was my first apprentice since I became a Knight."

    Renny blinked. "It's not that, Chippy. I wanted to learn a lot of magic from you, because I really liked your method of magic." He hugged Chip fondly. "Don't blame yourself for my actions."

    The Crimson Paladin hugged back. "I don't know, Renny. I promised my baby brother that I would keep you safe after you were brought back from Verminoi."

    Steven hummed. "You were aware that a race of space kitsune once lived in the Verminoi Sector of the galaxy, weren't you? I have often heard the Were-Rat Spirit King mention many stories about their ancestral home sector. There were many worlds there that became barren once the outsiders conquered their home worlds."

    He then smiled. "Where will the two of you go from here? Alas, I do not have all of the answers that you may wish to know."

    Chip hummed, as he said. "We'll see about going to Australia, and visit family friends. If we have to go into Dreamtime, I may need help. Unless I can find a way to contact Glacyra Yceswan. She helped my brothers and a few Dreamwolf Heroes, find a friend's dimensional counterpart."

    Renny blinked, as he opened a fortune cookie. "We're going to see Lex and Seth? Cool!" He then looked at the fortune, wondering what fate has in store for him.

    Renny's fortune cookie read, When the Hare harkens to the winds of change, he will sway like the willow, yet he will not be broken. A clear hint to the ears changing soon. But what does the willow have to do with it?

    Chip's fortune cookie read, The trials of the Beaver and the Kangaroo, like lightning, will strike twice behind where you would last look. Tread softly like the petals of the cherry orchard. Some sort of hint about going to Australia? But striking behind and treading softly. What could that mean?

    Steven prepared a bag of fortune cookies for Chip's family down under and a box of Chinese tea. Then, he escorted the two back upstairs to the lobby of the ski lodge, where Apollo had just entered from outside.

    "Steven, help me get some clothes together for Justin," said Apollo. "He fell in Mudslyde's silty cavern and that means he has lost his clothes."

    Steven giggled. "I've always wanted to see him naked. I'll help you, Apollo." He turned to Chip and Renny again. "I am glad to serve you, my friends. Visit me any time."

    And then, Steven and Apollo strode off toward Justin's old room.

    Chip smiled, as he summoned his bag of safe-keeping. "Did you get a good fortune, Renny?"

    Renny shrugged. "It was really inspiring, though it came with some mystery." He then looked at Chip, who was taking out his cape and setting the box of Chinese Tea and the bag of fortune cookies into the bigger than outward appearances storage. "What did you get as your fortune?"

    The Crimson Paladin, with the fortune still fresh in his head, was putting on his cape over his shoulders. "Something that may be helpful in our journey, judging by the mention of the Beaver and the Kangaroo." He then brought out his Crimson Gripper. "We'll be heading to Australia via the comforts of the Crimson Saw Sharkmax Zord. Then we'll take a ride to the Sidarius Station on the Carpet."

    The Archmage hummed. "What about facing Evan, Owen, or Kwon if we pass by Mount Atlantis?"

    Chip then placed the Gold cloak over Renny's shoulders. "Who said that a shark knows only one way to go to his destination?" He winked with a chuckle. "We'll take a route that will not take us near Atlantis... but first, we should get some groceries for the journey ahead."

    ~~~~~ :tao: ~~~~~

    It took only two days for Chip and Renny to arrive at the coast of Melbourne on the Crimson Saw, and three hours on magic carpet to reach the two familiar stations near the Queensland town of Devonshire. Once they landed at a road a quarter mile away, it took only a few more minutes to reach the gates of the Sidarius station.

    The gated property was converted from an old station unused for a few years by its former owner, to a combination Martial Arts Training and Kangaroo Breeding Station. By this time, the live-in students of Lexington's tutelage were scrambling to get the morning chores started. The fence was freshly re-built, and Anti-Evil Barriers were in place on all parts of the fence.

    Chip then shouted. "Good Morning, blokes. May we have safe entrance, and escort to the main house?"

    One of the more rookie white belt students came over to the front gates looking as if he had been hazed* by his senior peers. He didn't appear to be very happy, and he was rather dirty, having a bit of roo doo doo or donkey doo, it was hard to tell which, on his clothes. He bowed to the arrivals, and opened the gate. "Please, proceed to the main house." Then he started to head off to resume his chores (and possibly any one else's chores that they are making him do for them.)

    *...what the sensei doesn't know can't possible hurt anyone, right?

    Renny couldn't help to feel sympathy for the rookie, as he finally spoke up. "Could you please wait for a second?"

    Chip hummed, as he waited to see what Renny was going to do. Lexington knows not of what is going on with his own students? Either the concussion he suffered is more serious than we thought, or he is less focused than Britton.

    The 15-16 year old boy stopped and slowly glanced back at Renny. "Yes sir?" His voice made it sound like he was afraid of being punished for doing something very wrong. He had short brown hair, hazel eyes, and slightly tanned skin, though he was dirty from whatever the others had done to him. He stood around 5'3" tall and weighed about 155 pounds.

    Renny said. "Is there anything going on that you look like that? Most of the students I saw had kept their uniforms clean."

    Chip nodded, feeling some sort of negative energy within the confines of the station.

    Deeper within the station, the sound of Seth Sidarius giving instructions on how to milk goats to a few of the older students were heard. Something that the co-owner of the station needed to do on an Australian morning such as this one.

    The boy irked, and replied, "It...it...it's... no-nothing. I...was... um... just clumsy..." He knew what would happen to him if he told on the others who had made him look that way. His eyes were not on neither Renny's nor Chip's when he answered. He was gazing at the ground, quite obviously. "the sensei has been bedridden for a while. Master Seth is... in the back yard..."

    Renny looked to the student, and walked up to him. "I know that look from experience, and it is never good." He then said, "What is your name, young student?"

    Chip blinked. So my brother has gotten more beaten up than we thought by the Psychos. Hopefully, he might be up to a healing potion... if he consents.

    The boy sighed. "Peter... Peter Haerford... I joined... a few... I mean... a while ago... but... I...I... was thinking... er... about leaving..." He sounds broken inside, but there are no tears to show.

    Renny smiled. "Peter, giving up is like admitting defeat. Only in courage will you find your own magic." He then snapped his fingers, and in an instant, Peter's was clean of all the filth that the other students made him go through.

    Chip hummed, impressed by what Renny had told Peter. "Does Master Seth, or your sensei know what is going on around the station?"

    Just then, a slightly stronger Vladamir Lonewolf came out of the main house, and looked on at the horizon to the East, then he looked around to see visitors. My son is not up for visitors today. Who can be visiting on a day like this?

    Peter quietly irked, as he muttered, "no... and the others would kill me if the senseis found out what the older student do to newbies, like me... I'm just a newbie who likes... plushies..." He then blushed heavily, before he turned toward Vladimir. "Sir? These two arrived to see the Sensei. They seem to know him, sir."

    Vlad smiled, as walked down to the three. "It is okay, Peter; the redhead is my first-born." He then looked to Chip. "I was told a lot about you by your little brother and his husband, Charlie. The last I saw you, you were only a little baby."

    Chip's face suddenly paled. "Dad?"

    Vlad nodded. "Come inside, son. We have a lot to talk about." He then looked to Peter. "A wise warrior is never blind, Peter. Come and join the three of us in the main house. I am sure that your sensei and Master Seth would understand."

    Renny was amazed by Vlad. "Wow... he is good."

    Peter nodded his head and went inside with the others. He didn't dare refuse the Sensei's father. Though he mainly kept quiet. He was afraid of what the main two others would due to him for skipping out of doing the chores that they were supposed to be doing, but had been making him do for them, so they could get in extra training and look better.

    Once inside the main house, it had the feel of a house kept with love. Vlad led the three to the living Room, which had a picture of the Lonewolf and Sidarius boys (pre-Atlantean) on one of the walls. "What brings you to Australia, Charlie?"

    Chip was actually nervous; he had never known his biological father before. "This is actually a stop on our journey... Oh! how rude of me not to introduce my boyfriend." He blushed. "This is Renny Reinger."

    Renny smiled. "A pleasure to meet you, Mr. Lonewolf."

    Vlad nodded. "Same to you, Renny."

    Just then, a muffled sound of Seth scolding the other students for being lazy, and not doing their share of the chores.

    Peter irked, barely whispering, "...I'm as good as dead... they're going to think that I told on them..."

    Though he was wondering what kind of journey that Chip and Renny were on.

    Vlad looked to Peter. "Would you please go into the kitchen and make us some tea, Peter? I'll just tell the sensei that you are doing some chores in the main house today."

    He then looked at Chip. "You have come to see your brother, have you? I heard what happened to him a few days ago. A bunch calling themselves 'Psycho Rangers' had some sort of bounty on his head."

    The redhead sighed. "Actually, I already know." He then managed to look his father in the eye. "Renny is the reason why we are here, Dad. There are some answers that need to be fulfilled."

    Peter nodded his head and got up, looking oddly at Renny for a moment... could he have noticed something odd about Renny that just didn't seem right? Then Peter headed into the kitchen, which was out of earshot of the 'family.' Making the tea was the next part of the task.

    Vlad nodded. "What would be wrong that merits your visit here?"

    Chip sighed. "It is complicated. We need to see about getting a contact that only Lexington can possibly call. We need to get somewhere we can't by conventional means." He then looked at Renny. "Go ahead, Renny... take them out."

    Renny nodded. "Okay." The archmage then reached into the seat of his pants, and pulled out his two fox tails.

    The redheaded father blinked at the sight of Renny's tails. "What happened to him? Was he hit with some kind of curse?"

    The Knight shook his head. "No... Renny is turning into a Kitsune."

    Peter arched an eye at those words, but he kept out of the family business. He knew through a sixth sense that something unusual was wrong with Renny. But he couldn't see anything physically. He continued to prepare the tea in the kitchen.

    Seth came in with a growl. "I swear... those yellow belts are slacking off for no apparent reason, Vlad. Makes me want to bring out the Dragon Warrior to teach them a lesson." He then noticed the two. "Chip? Shouldn't you and Renny be back in Briarwood by now?"

    Chip brought out his bag, and said. "No... we're on a visit before we continue our journey."

    Vlad walked over to Seth to whisper something into his ear. Seth nodded.

    The Knight produced the box of tea, and a bag of fortune cookies, and gave them to Seth. "Our friend wanted us to give you these. We were up at Crusader Mountain a few days ago. We need to speak with your husband if we can. I'll give him a potion if I have to."

    Peter brought in the tea and cups, and poured some tea for Vlad quietly. He was afraid to meet Seth's gaze, not surprisingly... though he did smile at Renny as he poured him a cup of tea.

    Renny swished his tails happily, as he accepted the cup of tea. "Thank you, Peter."

    "Peter, why don't you join us for a cup of tea?" Seth asked, smiling at the white belt. He then looked at Chip. "Lexie has a really serious concussion, Chip. I'm trying the best I can while he is recovering, but I may need more help than I thought."

    Chip sighed. "A potion may not help him... Could you try to get in contact with one of your friends, I may need help from Glacyra Yceswan."

    Vlad hummed. "A fellow warrior can accept help for when it is desperately needed. I'll help you with the students."

    The Dragon Warrior shook his head. "No, Vlad... You are our honored guest, and family."

    The elder redhead said. "I insist, Seth. You are my son in-law, and family takes care of each other."

    Seth pulled out his Courageans Communicator. "I'll see if Cutter is up to a call from me... The doctor had strict orders that Lexie shouldn't use any type of electronic device or play any video games until his concussion is healed. Why do need me to call them?

    Chip sighed. "Renny and I are going to Dreamtime. We need to visit a couple people that can help us there." He then looked to Seth in the eyes. "Renny is turning into a Kitsune, and the first part of the transformation is fast."

    Renny smiled after taking a sip of tea. "This tea is delicious, Peter. What kind of tea is it?"

    Peter replied to Renny softly, "It's um, Green Leaf, Ginseng & Rosemary Tea. It's a blend that I know of. Er... your tails look.... very kawaii." Then he blushed like someone half his age.

    Renny blushed profusely. "I guess I am starting to get that a lot... thank you, Peter... You do look kawaii in your gear."

    Seth chuckled, as he activated his Courageans Communicator. "Cutter Devlin? This is Seth Sidarius of Dreamtrail calling. Do you read?"

    Vlad smiled. "It's good to see that you care for your baby brother. Why Virginia hasn't re-married after all these years is beyond me."

    Peter sighed. "...the noob rookie...thanks anyway..."

    Over the Courageans Communicator came what sounded like Cutter's voice, yet something was different about it. "Red 'awkstorm Ranger 'ere, Seth! What can Ah do for yas?"

    Seth blinked, remembering what Cosmic Mouse told him. "I haven't contacted you in a while, Cutter... but I need to try and get in contact with Glacyra Yceswan. My brother in-law needs to go into another dimension that he can't get to without a Shaman's help. It involves something about the Kitsune-kind."

    Renny took another sip of his tea. "You are not a noob, Peter. If you were, you wouldn't make such delicious tea." He then conjured up a fortune cookie with very simple magic. "Here... for you."

    Cutter replied, "They are all at Shaman Circle, Seth. Which one do yas need?"

    Peter looked to Renny and whispered, "The only thing I've learned around here so far is how to do everyone's chores. And make tea."

    Seth shook his head. "I need Glacyra Yceswan to help Chip and his boyfriend into the Dreamtime Dimension."

    Vlad hummed, as he cracked his knuckles. "I'll go see if Lexington is up to seeing you, Charlie... he's been resting a lot recently."

    Chip smiled. "I guess he got hit in the head harder than we thought; he's more of a fighter."

    Renny whispered back, "In some martial arts, they use normal chores to train others in their technique. That would mean they are missing out on training." He winked with a giggle.

    Peter whispered to Renny, as he opened his fortune cookie to read his fortune, "I wish I could go with you and Chip. You guys are actually doing something..."

    Cutter replied, "Let me ask 'er if she will go get yas blokes. She was putting up with new shaman students this morning."

    Seth scratched his head, as he said, "It is okay if she can't, Cutter... but it is good to hear your voice again."

    Renny whispered, as his tails swished in a mischievous manner. "We're going into another dimension to find out more about what I am turning into. Are you sure you want to do that?" He then winked, as he grinned. "What does fate have in store for you, Peter?"

    Cutter replied, "Glacyra said something similar to, Anything to be away from these little maggots for even a day. She's on 'er way, mate."

    Peter whispered, "Avoid the Weasel and the Serpent, for after a Dragon's beating, vengeance they will seek. Trust in the Fox and the Beaver, for in their company, your niche be secured." He looked to Renny, whispering, "What does that mean?" He shows the fortune to Renny.

    Renny hummed... "Fox... Beaver... Hmm.." Renny was interested in helping Peter figure out his fortune. "What does the weasel and the serpent mean to you, Peter?"

    Seth smiled. "Thank you, Cutter. Feel free to visit us Dreamtrailers anytime you please. Have a wonderful day, Dragon Warrior out."

    Vlad came downstairs. "Lexington is going to need help coming down in a minute; he is just putting on his robe."

    Chip nodded. "I'll go up to help him." He then walked out of the living room, and upstairs to find where Lexington would be.

    Peter sighed. "A weasel and a serpent is not what I would have called the two who seem to have it in for me. More like the ox and the horse. They are strong and they've hit me before. I still have a bruise that they told me not to show the sensei." He then lifted his shirt and showed it to Renny, as he gingerly petted one of Renny's tails.
    ________________________________________

    March/05/2008, 02:22 AM
    Renny smiled. "The fox and the beaver sounds familiar, but the beaver was mentioned in another fortune I heard before..." His eyes widened, as he started to see the bruise and feel the strange sensation of Peter rubbing one of his tails... "Oh... that feels good..."

    Chip came downstairs just a minute later, helping his little brother down to the living room. Lexington's head was bandaged, and his ponytail was cut off by Seth when the doctor was examining him.

    Lexington sat down in his favorite chair. "Oy, mates... Yas never thought Ah'd come out of my cave, did yas?" He winked, then flinched.

    Seth smiled. "You know you shouldn't wallow in your condition, sweetheart. Yas told me that almost two years ago when I felt guilty."

    Renny hummed, as he swished the free tail happily. "I guess you will be welcome to join us, if Lex and Seth approves of you leaving."

    Vlad smiled. "I never thought I would see both my sons in the same room in my life."

    Chip blushed. "You know that mother raised Britton with Lexington..."

    Lexington shook his head slowly. "Yas don't want to know what life was like before Chip and Ah were brothers, Dad."

    Chip grinned. "Have you told him yet of meeting your Dreamtime counterpart Baby bro? If I remember correctly, you said he was more laid back than Uncle Valon is."

    Lexington's face went red in embarrassment.

    Seth hummed. "That is enough fun to make at the cost of my husband's humility, Chip Lonewolf. Glacyra should be here at any minute to help Chip and Renny go to Dreamtime."

    Peter irked, then stood up to speak to Seth and Lexington. "Um, Sensei... Master Seth... I would like to travel with Chip and Renny for a while. May I have leave to go?" He was actually scared to be talking to them.

    Seth said, as he served a cup of tea to his husband. "It would be okay with me, Peter, but final word goes to the Sensei."

    Lexington carefully held the cup of tea in his hands, as he gave some thought to his decision. "If yas think yer path is taking another direction, then yas 'ave permission."

    Chip smiled, sitting on the other side of Renny. "He would be welcome to join us, if he really wants to."

    Peter sighed, and as he showed Seth the fortune from the cookie, he lifted his shirt to show the bruising to Lexington and finally just told them everything that had been happening to him since he arrived at the station. He was silently crying as he finished. "I...I... want to see where Renny ends up with Chip... then I'll come back... if you let me..."

    Seth grumbled... "And I busted those students for being slackers today. I'll make sure that they are put on stall cleaning detail for a month." After I show them a thing or two...

    Lexington smiled. "Though Ah did not know that yas were treated in that way, Ah suggest that yas follow that fortune, and if yas want to return, yas will be welcomed in my dojo for an accelerated course. Ah'll just send a letter to the Lotus Fist in Briarwood for their master's notes."

    Renny smiled happily, for he has friend joining in on his journey. "It's a good thing we bought all that food, right Chip?"

    Chip nodded.

    Suddenly, the outback experienced a sudden drop in temperature, as a cold snap flashed into the yard of the station with her glacier sword at the ready. "I don't see any monsters. No one seems to be in trouble. I wonder what Seth wants this time?" Glacyra had arrived.

    Inside the main house, Peter shivered a bit. "Brrrr.... who turned off the heat?"

    Seth and Chip scrambled outside fast, though Seth was freezing with his short sleeves on. "Glacyra... there was a battle here less than a week ago." Seth was about ready to use his powers.

    Renny started shivering... "I haven't felt this cold since an unnatural Blizzard before I met a Kitsune."

    Peter took Renny upstairs to the room he had been staying in and packed what little clothes he arrived with, which surprisingly was very little. "I'm ready, Renny. I am going to miss sleeping in a real bed..."

    Outside, Glacyra raised one hand and chanted an American Indian word, and all of the cold vanished, siphoning back into her raised hand. "Sorry about that. The temperature always drops when I enter a region. So who all is going to Dreamtime America?"
    ________________________________________

    Renny smiled. "Try sleeping with alien rodent species on bare ground for twelve years... Though Chip is a bit more comfy..." Too much information!


    Seth smiled. "I can't go anywhere; Lexie is recovering from a concussion, and I have to make sure the cocky students are in check."

    Chip said. "Renny and I are going to Dreamtime America... plus one more. I hope we are not imposing on you, Glacyra."

    Glacyra grinned at Seth. "Any time I can get away from those maggot students of mine is a welcome time. Plus, I have Thunderbird's permission to escort your friends where ever they want to go. Plus, they might need some outside protection, for which I am pleased to provide."

    Peter smiled at Renny. "Sleeping on open ground is something that I know all too well. I never got to sleep in a real bed until I came here to the station. Unlikes you, I imagine... I was an orphan from birth. I ran away from the evil orphanage and just kept moving. So I know what sleeping on the ground is like. I'm ready... let's go see if your Chip is ready now."

    Seth grinned. "Speaking of Maggots, I better show Lexie's set of 'em what the benefit of doing chores are... the hard way. If you two will excuse me..." Seth morphed into a form he is keeping secret from Lexington, and leaped onto the top of the Student Bunk House.

    Vlad walked out of the Main House, along with Renny and Peter. "Are you two leaving without saying goodbye?"

    Chip walked up to his father, shook hands with him, and gave him a hug. "Will I see you in Briarwood when I visit mother next?"

    The redheaded father hummed. "Maybe. She probably thinks I am still dead or missing. I only want to soften the blow for her."

    Renny smiled. "Peter and I are ready to go, Chippy."

    Glacyra hummed. "No Deryk Devlin this time, huh? What a shame. Anyway, whenever you boys are ready, I can call my Winter Owl Zord and get this trip underway."

    Chip hummed. "I hope to see you again, Dad... We have years of catching up to do."

    The elder Lonewolf nodded. "As will I, Charlie."

    The Knight then looked towards both Renny and Peter. "Are you both ready? We won't be coming back to Dreamtrail too soon."

    Renny nodded, tucking his tails into his pants. "I am ready, Chippy, are you?"

    Chip nodded. "All that we need is in my bag."

    Glacyra then lifted her head toward the skies and shouted, "I need a change in the seasons! Winter Owl Zord!" From deep within Valhalla's frozen tundras, within a glacier itself, a sudden earthquake split the ice wide open, as the Winter Owl Zord sudden exploded out of the eons old glacier field and made the crossing between worlds as it flew in and landed near Glacyra, arching it's head toward the boys. Glacyra smiled. "We help these males who are on a quest, old friend. And we have Thunderbird's blessing to do so."

    Glacyra then turned to the others. "O.K. guys. Let's get into the Winter Owl Zord. The Shaman Zords are, fortunately, capable of carrying a crew of four people, not counting the pilot."

    Peter smiled. "Beauty before rookies, Renny. After you..."
