    Nearing Mount Atlantis...

    The Winter Owl Zord was heading towards Mount Atlantis, but it seems more evident that the entire mountain had already resurfaced since the first time Chip and Renny were there, noting a top tower of a palace unoccupied was protruding a mile from the mountain, still surrounded by Ocean on all sides.

    Chip was looking down at the rising continent, noting the changes as they flew closer and closer to the mountain. "Looks like Atlantis has risen a bit more since our last visit, Renny."

    The Hengeyokai Turtle, Kamzilla, hummed. "All that water... amazing..."

    Renny smiled. "Cool! Maybe Sekolah decided to come back, too!"

    Glacyra said, "Where do you want me to land, Chip? Water freezes upon my zord talon's touch, if touched for too long."

    At that moment, the Winter Owl spoke, which it rarely did. "I am detecting a Shark man below us, Mistress Yceswan."

    Peter grinned at Renny, still scratching on the itchy fur. "Your ankles are fur covered, now, Renny. Does scratching the itch actually make it better?"

    Kamzil's eyes widened, "Same? Iie!" He then hid in his shell once again, showing that he has a fear of Sharks.

    Chip sighed, and said. "Close to the lower parts of the mountain should be okay... and that Shark-man must be Owen." He then pulled out his Crimson Gripper, and activated it. "Owen, the Winter Owl Zord is coming down for a landing."

    Suddenly, everyone had a feeling that they had to cover their ears. "WHERE HAVE YOU GUYS BEEN, CHIP?! YOU GUYS HAD THE ENTIRE TEAM WORRIED!!" It was Kwon's voice.

    "Seriously, calm down, Kwon," said another voice, which sounded like Owen's voice, but slightly changed. "You still have some explaining to do, Chip. Bryan voiced his concerns to us about you and Renny leaving the team."

    Chip grumbled. "It's complicated... We need to gain access to the INP to get to SunRaven. We are landing above the timberline, so expect us to be around in five minutes."

    Renny could still hear the ringing in his foxy ears. "Man, Kwon sounds as pissed as Sadistic Lisa."

    Kamzil popped his head out of his shell long enough to say, "Not even my shell can block that yell."

    Glacyra grinned. "Don't you have a volume control on that communicator? We Shamans do."

    Peter shirked at the yell, but continued scratching on Renny's furry feet.

    Glacyra was then piloting the Winter Owl Zord toward the landing zone.

    Chip nodded, as he worked a bit on Renny's ears. "Surprising thing is... that was the lowest volume setting."

    One of Renny's furry feet start to shake as he felt the redheads fingers scratching at his ears. "Wow... that feels good."


    Meanwhile, Kwon Kiau was skipping rocks at the shoreline between the ocean and the mountain. "Why are they wanting to get to the INP? I never thought Chip would be such a prick and leave the team."

    Evan Barone... or Sidarius, rather... was sitting down at the mountain, admiring the view of the remainder of the continent rising. "Don't think that, Kwon... If they left the team, they would've left the morphers behind. They must've had a pressing matter to attend to that merited some personal time off."

    Owen was cooking two tuna that he caught earlier for his husband, and Kwon. However, he let his sit raw until the others were ready, because he acquired the taste of raw fish through instinct. "They said that they were going to land around the Timberline... They should be here within a few minutes..." He then started to sniff the air. "But why do I get the strange feeling that something smells familiar... with a hint of turtle?"

    When the Winter Owl Zord landed, Glacyra opened the hatch and was helping everyone out. Then she emerged last and said, "And now, Chip... I have something to show you. And I am sure this will make ALL rangers who find out about this jealous. We Shamans have an added ability linked to our zords."

    And then she stepped away from the zord, allowing the hatch to close, and suddenly... the Winter Owl Zord glowed, then in a flash of light... shrank in mid air and flowed into a crystal pendant necklace that Glacyra was wearing.

    She then smiled. "Easy transport. Shall we head down and find your friends now?"

    Peter was actually kind of impressed by that trick. He shouldered his backpack, though, which now contained Renny's shoes, and nodded to the still changing kitsu-boi.

    Renny hummed... "Odd... I don't see any signs of camp near the INP where the Dynamic Duo Rangers went through to go home..."

    Chip hummed. "They must've camped out closer to the sea, then... Atlantis is a rising continent, you know." He winked.

    Kamzil was hiding under the knight's cape and shaking. "What ever you do, Chip-san... please don't let the shark get me... I don't want to end up like most of my non-Hengeyokai ancestors did; Turtle Soup..."

    Chip smiled. "Don't worry, Kamsil-sama. As long as you choose to be hidden from Same-kun, he won't attack you."

    Glacyra soon said, "I see two human boys and a shark man down near the shore, Chip. Are those your friends?"

    Peter walked with Renny, somewhat closely, in case Renny needed some more scratching attention for the itches.

    The shark appeared to be more of his own species. His tailfin has grown slightly longer, and his dorsal fin was fully developed. He wasn't wearing a shirt on this occasion, but it was a beautiful day as the fire flickered, and the distant tower sparkled in the sunlight. "The smell of fox and turtle are stronger."

    Evan looked up, and smiled. "It's Chip and... Renny?!"

    All three of the active Shark Rangers' jaws dropped.

    Renny felt like a sore thumb... even Owen was shocked.

    Chip then said. "There is a reason why I hate hiding things from teammates... and that is why."

    Glacyra said, "They will be supportive once you explain to them what has been occurring, Chip. Renny's condition at least explains why he still looks young instead of looking like his true age."

    Peter whispered to Renny, "The shark guy is even shocked. That's not normal, is it?"

    Renny sighed, as he whisper-replied to Peter. "Owen is an Atlantean that grew up as human. He looks like he is in his final stages of transformation. His husband, with the scar on his face, is always supportive of him through thick and thin. Kwon, Wan's twin brother, thinks of himself as Owen's protector."

    Chip said. "Sorry for arriving on such short notice, Owen..."

    Owen brought out a few more tuna, and stabbed some poles into them, and set them over the fire to cook. "Come join us, you are a good sight for very sore shark eyes."

    Evan nodded with a welcoming smile. "We have plenty of fish to go around."

    Glacyra said, "Thanks but no thanks, boys. I am just the transportation escort for their quest." Then she looked to Kwon. "We saw your brother in Japan a few hours ago. He looked well."

    Peter paled a little when he saw the fish.

    Kwon looked down, and said "Has he been keeping out of trouble?" When they were young, Wan would get into trouble, and Kwon would be making a lot of efforts to help his brother to turn a new leaf.

    Renny nodded. "And Britton was there, as well... though he took an emergency trip to Australia."

    The redhead then cleared his throat. "We can't stay for too long, though."

    Owen hummed thoughtfully. "I think I know why you two left. I knew I started to smell kitsune, and Steven Wylie was nowhere to be seen. You wanted to try and help Renny in any way you can; a good thing to do for a lover." He then looked up, and said, "Why are you wanting to use the INP to get to SunRaven?"

    Chip let out a sigh. "We are looking for some Kitsune that might help with what Renny is going through, and we were given a lead that one of them might be in SunRaven. Peter is from Lexington's dojo, and was allowed to join us on this adventure."

    Evan smiled. "Not only do we have a sharky on our team, we have a foxy, too... Cool!"

    Renny blushed.

    The Atlantean chuckled. "I know how that feels." He then sniffed the air again. "I'll see about opening the INP for your group, but I am curious; why do you smell like a turtle, Chip?"

    Chip hummed. "My Spirit companion is a Turtle, though he is very afraid of Selachiians. He's young, so I wouldn't blame him."

    Kamzil, stayed on Chip's shoulder, and hid in his shell.

    Glacyra replied to Kwon, "Wan looked like he was indeed staying out of trouble. He had a crow companion sitting on his shoulder and they were looking for the three princesses."

    Peter whispered to Renny again, "Owen is looking at Chip the way a dog looks at a bone."

    Kwon nodded. "I haven't been to Japan for a while... Certainly, things have changed with my brother."

    Owen could hear what they were whispering. Unlike his heightened senses, his hearing was a bit more sensitive. "I only look out of curiosity towards the scent of turtle, Peter. I do not dare eat my brother in-law's family, let alone any human." He then held up his Shark Morpher.

    Renny irked; he forgot that Owen had very good hearing.

    Chip hummed. "We are not staying for long, Owen. We do need to get going.

    The Atlantean smiled, though trying not to scare anyone with his teeth. "Then when you arrive at the SunRaven side of the INP, You will be on an island far different from Atlantis, and the Mountain is known there as Mu. The rangers there could potentially be our allies, but I suggest that you don't meddle in the main team's affairs; they still need time to grow. And you notice a Green Dragon Warrior fighting with a Dragon, leave those two be."

    Chip and Renny blinked, as he tried to imagine a Dragon Warrior fighting a Dragon.

    Owen then said to the others, "I will be back in a few minutes; I'll help them through the INP to SunRaven."

    Evan hugged the Shark, and gave him a kiss on the cheek. "Promise you'll stay safe, Sharky?" he asked. The question was answered with a nod.

    Glacyra grinned, as she threw in a teasing remark, "Actually, he's going to cross over with us and find a new husband. Kings are allowed to have harems, you know..." She winked.

    Peter face-handed himself, rolling his eyes. He couldn't believe she said that.

    Evan's jaw dropped. "What?!"

    Renny giggled.

    Owen laughed a little. "She's only wanting to get a rise out of you, Tiger." He then placed his wedding ring that was around his neck into his fin-hand. "We are married to each other, and I never violate that bond." He then looked to Glacyra. "He is... what royalty say... my prince, and my most favorite, and only husband."

    Chip nodded. "You still need the aid of your armor to summon the scepter?"

    Owen nodded, as he morphed into his Ranger form, and then armored up. "I am still not a full Atlantean Shark yet, but I can still make full use of my Ranger Powers... with a special thanks to Russell."

    Kamzil was now observing the Ranger form. "What is he? What did he change into?"

    "That is the Atlantean Guardian Ranger, Kamzil-sama," Chip replied to Kamzil, in broken Japanese. "The King's Armor."

    The INP chamber was as it was before, though the Sun Raven portal seemed to be glowing with a soft though different color. Something about it just appeared to be slightly wrong, but otherwise, it appeared to be functioning normally.

    Glacyra hummed. "I am detecting... something... unusual here. And here I thought as a shaman that I had felt every kind of unusual feeling there was to experience."

    Peter on the other paw was in awe of the crystal INP chamber and all of the beautiful portals. "...WOW..." he whispered, admiring every portal one at a time.

    Chip and Renny looked in awe at the jewel as well; they have seen nothing like it before, not even on their last visit to the mountain.

    Owen then said. "My friends among the Dynamic Duos told me of a SunRaven mage that opened access to the Sun Raven dimension through this INP, and it would stay that way as long as I promised to make sure that it is monitored, and used safely." He then raised the Scepter of Atlantis to the jewel suspended in mid-air. "By the power of Atlantis, I command that the Portal to Sun Raven be opened for these travelers, and to allow them a safe return at their will." The scepter's suspended jewel then started to glow with an Atlantean aura.

    The Sun Raven Portal then glowed and pulsed oddly, then there came a flare of light, and a thunderclap, as sparks and lightning bolts erupted from the Sun Raven Portal, nearly striking anyone who might have been too close. And then, all was quiet, as the Portal simply hummed normally again.

    Glacyra had her frost staff out and at the ready, as he glanced over at the others. "Is everyone okay?"

    Peter had been standing near another portal when the Portal Eruption occurred, though now he stepped out from behind it where he had taken cover. "What was all that about? Is Sun Raven having a storm or something?"

    Chip absorbed the lightning that hit near him, for his elemental powers still exist, despite the change of ranger powers. "That portal sure has a temper..." He growled, holding his Crimson Gripper. "Why is it not allowing us access?"

    Renny was already shaken at the base of the podium... "I don't know if I am okay..."

    Owen growled. "I thought I could use the powers of Atlantis to open it. Guess the SunRaven mage made a failsafe on there just in case someone used a different method to get in." He then powered down to his Selachiian form. "Now how did Nick open the INP from SunRaven?" He then closed his eyes in thought. "Chip, Shaman Yceswan, would you mind protecting me when I am attempting to open the portal again?" He then pointed his arms outward toward the jewel in mid air.

    Glacyra nodded and stepped over to erect a protection barrier around Owen, Chip, and herself. "I can keep this up for a while, Owen, but nothing is forever."

    Peter stepped back out of sight behind the portal he had chosen to take cover behind. He didn't want another lightning storm to erupt toward him.

    Owen went forward, and took the same stance, raising his hands into the air in the same method Nick did before; outward to the jewel in mid-air. Let all the portals open, please.

    Chip held out his Crimson Gripper as if it was his old Mystic Morpher, in case more lightning came out of the Sun Raven Portal.

    Renny, on the other paw, scrambled next to Peter. "I'm scared..." Lightning storms were not his liking, and he was afraid enough to show it in his actions.

    The central jewel glowed brightly, then to everyones surprise, it spoke. "Owen, King of Atlantis. The Portals are already open. They have been since the mantle of magical power passed over to the SunRaven mage. He thought sealing the INPs was a silly idea, but he respected that they should be guarded. The lightning storm from Sun Raven was caused by one of their newest enemies. Moravian Vampire Lord Kohltechula has cast a shroud of 'ever-night' over Sun Raven's Earth and the Moonwalker Rangers have been battling against his evil vampire forces. It has not been a good time for those who dwell there. I would advise caution to all who would travel there."

    Glacyra hummed. "I have heard of Kohltechula. I thought he was imprisoned in his own tomb in Moravia, the Gothic Halloween dimension. If he is free once again, then Sun Raven's Earth must be in dire perils indeed."

    Peter had been hugging Renny, but he now noticed that Renny was standing differently. And Renny's pants lay on the floor, as were his undershorts. "Um... Renny..." he whispered, "In all of the excitement... your legs changed. We were all so distracted... you never even noticed. You're digitigrade now... a two-tailed fox from the waist down."

    Owen then looked to the central jewel. "Should the travelers protect themselves with the powers they currently are gifted with, two of which have the powers of Atlantis on their side?"

    Renny looked at his feet, and then to his human genitals only to blush. He picked up his underwear to cover his naughty parts out of embarrassment.

    Chip grumbled. "We can travel the seas to America in the Crimson Saw if we need to... it is nearing Atlantis right now."

    Glacyra then noticed Renny and politely averted her eyes. "Chip... I think Renny just under went a wardrobe malfunction. I think I will conjure him something a bit more Native American to wear... to preserve his modesty." And she chanted an Indian braves leather tunic-skirt that would cover down to one's knees. "Here, Chip. Have Renny put this on."

    Peter petted on Renny gently. "Clothing can be replaced, Renny. At least when your legs changed you weren't screaming in bloody agony like Orion suggested that you might be when it happened. Looks like Glacyra made you something to wear that won't rip."

    Chip walked over to the Kitsune, and felt his legs first. "Do they hurt in any way, sweetheart?"

    Renny moaned in pleasure a bit. "I don't think I feel any pain, Chippy." He then had to mound his pants between his legs.

    Chip smiled, and helped Renny into the tunic-skirt. "You may want to thank Glacyra for helping us out with this, Renny."

    Renny thanked Glacyra, and hugged Chip. "That lightning was scary, Chip."

    Kamzil was so comfortable in his shell, that he fell asleep waiting for the Shark to go away.

    Owen then said. "You'll probably be safer if you travel underwater. However, if you see any sign of danger, don't hesitate to morph to protect yourselves. And please be careful when you pass through. I can only protect what is at this point."

    The Crimson Saw arrived at the opening of the cave, ready to be boarded by it's pilot and the passengers. "Looks like it's ready to board," Chip said.

    The Chamber Crystal then said, "Always remember that herbal teas are your friends." And then the Crystal spoke no more.

    Glacyra arched an eye, then shrugged and said, "I best suit up, then. The casual look is fine for every day public places. But I get the feeling that it won't matter in Sun Raven."

    Glacyra shouted, "Thunderbird!" The White Glacier Pentagram Morpher suddenly glowed brightly, as she pressed the morphing button. "Glacier Shaman Power!" White and gray armors of ice and mist encircled Glacyra's body in both directions, adhering themselves together all over her body. Then, a great white dragon helm appeared over her head, and a battlestaff of frost appeared in her hand, as Glacyra became the Glacier Shaman!

    She then proceeded to board the Crimson Saw. She was glad someone else was going to be driving this time. She desired a break from the helm, but she was always at the ready when needed.

    Peter smiled, as he boarded the Crimson Saw as well. "Sun Raven, here we come."

    Chip helped Renny into the Crimson Saw, then morphed into action at the seat of his cockpit in the Crimson Saw. "Alright, guys... Hold on tight. This won't be like riding the Solar Streak or the SHARC." As he piloted the zord into the SunRaven Portal, and set a course into the Ocean upon their arrival in SunRaven.

    Since Renny was struggling with the feel of his digitigrade legs, He didn't think that he would fit into his Bronze Arch Magi suit like he did when he joined with Royal Bronze. "I don't know if I can walk; my feet are so wobbly..."

    Peter helped Renny with his balance adjustment. "You were doing fine when you were standing in the Crystal Portal Chamber, Renny. You just have to not think about it and simply do what you would normally."

    Glacyra commented, "Peter is right, Renny. The more you focus on your new legs and footpads, the more unbalanced you will make yourself be. But if you ignore your bodily changes and focus on what everyone else is doing, you will adjust faster."

    There was a sudden splash into the ocean, as the Crimson Saw took a dive into the Ocean. "We'll be heading to the California Coast," Chip said, as he used manual controls to help the influence of the ocean. "The surface is rather nasty right now, as if it was a global Halloween... Cool!"

    Renny padded a couple feet, slowly, though. "That was when I thought my feet were normal, Peter. Why wasn't there any pain to it, though?"
    ________________________________________

    Glacyra said, "I think you either phased out the pain when all of the lightning occurred or your body chose to transfer the pain to another bodily transformation that has not yet occurred. But then again, Renny... would you really want any pain that you were predicted to have?"

    Peter had moved closer to Chip and whispered, "What do you think happened with Renny's legs, Chip?"

    Chip hummed, as he whispered to Peter while piloting with knightly precision. "I think that his fear of storms triggered a transformation, and the pain of his fear probably suppressed the pain. But I don't know if it is true, but like my baby brother says, 'anything is possible.'"

    The redhead then looked to Renny. "Keep your spirits up, Renny."

    Renny smiled, as he sat down on the floor of the zord. "Okay, Chippy."

    "We'll be reaching the shore within twenty minutes." Chip said, as he smiled to his boyfriend.

    Apparently the storm that was currently occurring all up and down the entire West Coast of America was not a natural one. It felt like dark magic to the extreme. Not to mention how the storm clouds seemed to have red glowing narrowed evil eyes within their churning motions. Perhaps the worst of the upcoming coastal view was the fact that no humans could be seen anywhere outside on the beaches, streets, nor anywhere else. It was like a ghost town up and down the entire coast.

    Glacyra blinked her eyes. "Chip? Are you sure we're in Sun Raven? It looks too... evil. Have the Moravian Vampire Elites completely taken over all ready? Where do you suppose the Rangers are based, Chip?"

    Peter had resumed the scritching of Renny's ears and now, the kitsune's legs as well as the feet. "You are going to have to somehow get used to having fur, Renny. Are do you need to be dipped in anti-itching powder?"

    Chip was hesitating noticeably. "I haven't seen anything as severe as this since the final battles with the Master and Armageddon. I mean... it may look cool in theory, but seeing it in real life is like Sadistic Lisa with Dragon Fear. If only the Rangers were out there... maybe there would be some hope."

    Renny shook a little. "I... am scared... of storms."

    Chip activated a simple autopilot on the Crimson Saw, as he went over to console Renny. "Don't worry, Renny. We're safe in here."

    Glacyra hummed. "I'll try to locate all possible Ranger activity, Chip, by using my Shaman powers. Give me a few moments while I concentrate." And she closed her eyes as she began to quietly chant.

    Peter allowed Chip to be with Renny, and he gave Glacyra her own privacy, as he sat down at the outward monitor and studied the coastline of California. While he was watching, he thought he saw some sort of movement emerging from the ocean itself, standing up on the beach, then heading into the nearby city, all sneaky like. (What was that? It looked like a wolf man...)

    Chip whispered to Renny, "Are you going to be okay, Renny? As long as we stay underwater, we don't have to worry about the thunder."

    Renny said. "What if we need to resurface, Chippy?"

    The redhead smiled. "It's okay, as long as I still have the powers of lightning, I will be the lightning rod to ground the strikes."

    Renny hugged his boyfriend. "Thank you, Chip."

    Chip smiled. "You'll be okay, sweetheart."

    Kamzil woke up, and spoke to Chip. "I don't sense any sharks in our presence. What is going on outside?"

    Chip replied. "If I told you, you'd be scared out of your shell."

    Glacyra then opened her eyes. "I have a report, Chip. The storm isn't actually a storm; it is actually a huge black gargoyle mage. And he's naked. Further... I located the Moonwalker Rangers. They seem to be based in Saint Louis, Missouri, within the Gateway Arch. They are using that as their headquarters. Aside from that... I am strangely not detecting any human like thinking anywhere outside of this Zord. I am not sure what that means, however."

    As Peter continued to watch the outward monitor that was aimed at the beach, he saw the wolf man emerge from the city carrying a gunnysack that seemed quite full. Then the wolf man waded out into the water of the ocean and dove under the water. (I was right. It was a wolf man. But where did he go when he entered the ocean?)

    Renny looked to Peter. "Is there something wrong, Peter? You've been quiet for a while."

    Chip hummed. "If only I had my Mystic Racer..." He then went back to the helm of the Crimson saw, plotting a possible course. "Our best bet would be diverting course through the Panama Canal so we can get to Missouri."

    Peter said to Renny, "Nothing major to worry yourself about, Renny. Was just a little bored, that's all."

    Glacyra said to Chip, "I hate to burst your educational knowledge bubble, Chip Lonewolf, but it takes humans to operate the canal locks at the Panama Canal. And I could not detect any human thoughts outside of this zord. So in order to pass through the Panama Canal, we will need someone to get into the control room for the locks and activate each one for each stage of rising and lowering to get your Crimson Saw through the Canal."

    Peter then glanced over at Chip and Glacyra. "I'll do it. I mean, it's storming outside and Renny is afraid of storms, and you would have to pilot the Crimson Saw, and Glacyra was asked to make sure you guys made the trip okay. To all the weird places and back. So for me to operate the canal locks would be a good thing to help in your quest."

    Chip thought about it for a few minutes. "I think it would be our only option, but I envy you getting into the action." He then redirected the Crimson Saw to head South by Southeast.

    Renny said. "Shouldn't he have protection against anything that come against him, Chippy?"

    The Crimson Paladin silently cursed; he knew that Renny was right, and also he should expect the unexpected when it comes to being a Knight.

    Glacyra said, "I hardly call operating the canal locks an action packed experience, Chip. Sounds to me like Peter simply wants to earn his keep on this trip. I mean, both you and Renny have magical powers, and are both rangers, and he's simply along for the ride, as an observer. Hopefully Panama isn't in the condition North America seems to be in."

    Peter was focusing on the outward monitor once again, having said his piece. He was still wondering where the wolf man of the sea went with that big sack. He didn't see the guy anywhere on the monitor.

    Once on course to Panama, Chip remembered how brave his little brother was when he fought the Hideacs without help until Vida arrived. He then muttered, "Why am I not thinking like a knight."

    Renny then said, "Wait, Chip, didn't you say once that courage is sometimes the only power you need to do something? If Peter wants to open the canal for us to pass through, shouldn't we let him..."

    Chip sighed, "You know, Renny Reinger... you may act a bit young, but you speak like you lived more than a lifetime." He then said, "Going through the canal is a lot better than traveling past South America or into the Arctic Circle to get to our destination." He then looked out the overhead dome towards the surface, watching a shark or two go past. "I was wrong to think about power at a time like this."

    Glacyra smiled, with a chuckle. "Kitsune are known for their wisdom, Chip. I am sure Peter will be just fine."

    Peter was in the back of the zord, trying to remember some of the martial arts lessons glimpses he had during all of the times he was being forced to work as a stable boy, rather than being a student. He finally sighed quietly as he sat down and just stared at his shoes for a while.

    Once the Crimson Saw was at the Panama Canal, the Crimson Paladin made the Zord resurface, hoping that the Zord won't catch the dark forces' attention. "Okay, Peter, were at the western entrance of the Panama Canal..."

    Renny tried to walk to Peter with out trying to think about it, but his legs were quite unstable when he tried, and he ended up stumbling, and landing on his tails. How embarrassing. "Ow..."
    ________________________________________

    Glacyra walked over and helped Renny up and back to his seat next to Chip. "Peter will be just fine, Renny. You need to learn your own abilities before you can offer to help others."

    Peter stood up and said, "I'll be fine, guys. And thanks for allowing me to do this, Chip. Its important to me to be able to do something aside from being a fifth zord wheel on a four-wheeled zord." And he went to the hatch of the zord and got out, making his way out and up to the first of the several canal loch terminals.

    The first thing he noticed was that the windows in the terminal building had been all but busted out. Which was strange because it appeared that they had burst out from the inside; not like something breaking in to get at people.

    Once inside, Peter noticed that literally everything was covered in a thin wet saliva like moisture, yet the loch controls were still operational. "This is rather... disgusting... it looks like... beasts got in here and... tried to suck on all of the controls... except they sucked on literally everything in here. Oh well, I don't have any gloves and we need to get through the canal, so here goes nothing..." He placed his hands on the wet controls and began pulling the proper levers and turning the right knobs.

    And Chip could see the first loch opening up to allow the zord access to the canal.

    Chip motioned the Crimson Saw into the canal, keeping it surfaced in case of an emergency. "Clearing the first Loch..." Once it passed the loch, it stopped when the tailfin cleared.

    Renny said, as he observed the piloting. "I never seen a place look this creepy before."

    Peter then closed the loch gate and activated the pumping control that helped the Zord to rise up to the level where the actual canal was located. Then, once that elevation was reached, the forward loch gate was opened to allow the zord to move into the canal itself. Once it cleared the gate, Peter closed the gate itself and released a sweaty sigh of relief, surprised that this work was so exhausting. And according to a map on the wall, he was going to have to do this three more times further along the canal. "Man... this sub-tropical heat and all this moisture... I'm soaked. And I'll have to do this three more times. At least I'm getting to do something for Chip and Renny. I better head back to the zord now."

    Glacyra hummed, as she was monitoring a temperature gauge for the outside surface. "That's strange. I am getting a humid 60 degree reading from the water outside the zord. It should be much higher than that."
    ________________________________________

    Chip looked at the readings as well... "You're right, Glacyra; the reading should be much higher... It's as if it was like the waters North and South of the Tropics..." He then looked up to Glacyra. "Do you think the shroud of 'ever-night' is causing this indirectly?"

    Renny was trying to sleep off his scared emotions while the others were trying to make sure everything went okay with the canal's operations.

    Peter boarded the Zord and refrained from sitting on any furniture, staying near the hatch. "You wouldn't believe how hot and humid it is out there and inside that Loch Control Station. It was so humid that I am soaked through and through. And I'm going to have to go out and operate the controls on three more stations up ahead, still. There was a map of the Loch Stations on one of the walls."

    Glacyra said, "You may think its hot out there, Peter, but the thermometer gauges are telling us that the water in the canal is not as warm as you think it is. Its actually temperate. And that isn't normal. Did you have any trouble with the controls for the lochs?"

    Peter smiled, though feeling warm and wet still. "I'm A-OK and cool, Glacyra. A piece of cake. I can't wait to do the next three loch gates."

    Glacyra nodded her head, as she turned to focus on Chip once again. "I sincerely hope we don't have to stay in this dimension for too long, Chip. There are things that are not right about this place."

    ~~~~~

    After operating the Lochs twice more along the Canal, Peter entered the final Loch Control Building and was operating the controls, when he got a sudden and unexpected surprise... a being that looked like a body soaked leather winged vampire wolf slapped his clawed hand on the back of Peter's neck and said, "I didn't think there were any humans left who were free... enjoy it while you can... you are mine..." And with that, it was gone.

    And Peter immediately felt sick and vomited on the floor, but he continued to finish operating the controls. But he still felt horribly ill. And his entire body felt like it was on fire, from the inside out. He finished the operation, and fled the building... but instead of going for the Zord, he dove over the nearby cliff into the ocean!

    Glacyra exclaimed, "WHAT IS HE DOING?!"

    Chip growled as he said... "Keep an eye on Renny, Glacyra... I'll find out what's going on." He then set the zord to go underwater, and the hatch to close. He then leaped out of the zord via magic to swim to where he saw Peter last. If anything bad happens to him, Lexington would blame me.

    Kamzil was swimming alongside Chip. "How do you plan to rescue him, Chip-san... the feeling of this place is even making me feel scared."

    The Crimson Paladin replied. "I should've used magic to open the canal locks, Kamzil-sama! I was trying to be wise by not using magic except for in an emergency, and it was a foolish move in this dimension."

    Kamzil said, "Try to calm yourself, Chip-san. It would increase your chances of finding your friend."


    Renny woke up from his nap, and rubbed his eyes... "How long was I out?"

    Glacyra petted on Renny gently. "You slept all the way through the Canal, my friend. We're in the Atlantic Ocean. How do you feel?"


    Soon just ahead in the waters, seeming to scratch his bare back on the sand and rocks of the ocean bottom, Kamzil detects Peter running out of breath. Chip would probably have overlooked that particular spot, but finding such for a turtle spirit was no contest. Strangely, the water around Peter seems far warmer than the water everywhere else.

    Kamzil irked, as he became solid. "Chip-san! He's running out of breath. We better get him in your Crimson Saw fast. This Dimension is not good for him." He then jetted down to the ocean floor, with Chip following close by.

    Once Chip got close enough he felt the heat coming from the water close to Peter "He's overheated, Kamzil-sama... I am going to use magic to get us back; get close." He then pulled out his Crimson Saw Staff, and used his magic to summon a spell seal to send them to the interior of the Crimson Saw.


    Renny scratched his ears, and got on his feet. "I feel okay, but I sense worse darkness than when I fell asleep."

    Suddenly, the spell seal safely deposited Chip (with Kamzil) and Peter into the Crimson Saw. "Peter, are you okay?"

    Glacyra looked over at him and said, "He's literally burning up from the inside, Chip! Look how he is literally trying to claw his own flesh off! I have a temporary solution; just don't get mad at me!" She points her Staff of Frost at Peter and exclaimed, "GLACIAL CHILL!" And instantly, Peter was encased within a block of ice - totally non-moving!

    Chip let out a sigh of relief. "Thank you, Glacyra... for a moment there, I thought he was going to be a goner." He then sighed, and remembered that Seth was the faith in the family; his heart was jumping when he found Peter, thanks to Kamzil's abilities and guidance.

    Renny blinked as the hair on his neck and ears stood on end. "What's wrong with Peter that you had to freeze him?"

    Glacyra said, "Peter is burning up from the inside out. I've not seen anything like this. Let me standing his cube up so I can check him out all over..." And she does so. That is when she sees the claw marks on the back of Peter's bloody neck. "Chip, I think you should see this. Something attacked Peter in that last Loch Control Building. He has a claw wound on the back of his neck and its not healing over properly." And that is when a very wet wolf like odor began to be noticed inside the zord. "What is that? Smells like a wet dog..."
    ________________________________________

    07-26-2008, 10:20 PM
    Renny pinched his nose... "And man, is it that wolf smell strong." He can smell it a bit strong, but it is minor compared to when his Selachiian friend started to pick up scents.

    Chip powered down and sniffed himself. "It's not me, and Kamzil-sama is not a Hengeyokai Ookami."

    Kamzil appeared before the others on Chip's shoulders. "Chip-san is right... there must be someone else within the zord that we don't know about."

    Chip nodded. "In other words, he smells a rat."

    After a thorough search of the Zord, however, no trace of any other being on board is found, though Peter's ice block is beginning to melt from the heat inside.

    Glacyra approached the ice block and sniffed it, then backed up. "Chip? The wolf scent is coming from Peter! This is bad! We need to get ourselves up to the Ranger's headquarters fast! Maybe someone there will know what's going on!"

    Chip re-morphed, and got to the helm of the Crimson Saw. "Right. As soon as we get to the Gulf Coast, I am going to have the Crimson Saw take flight to Missouri. I doubt Renny's magic carpet will be able to carry Peter in the icy shell." He then muttered. " So hard to travel by rivers..."

    Renny looked at the frozen block of ice. "I am sorry this happened to you, Peter."
    ________________________________________

    Glacyra said, "Stay focused, you two. Remember that neither of you are to blame for what happened to Peter. He was obviously attacked by something and it infected him somehow. But its not a normal illness. Also, he volunteered to operate the canal gates for us. He wanted to feel useful rather than feel like a bystander on the journey. We will help him." Then she looked to Renny for a short moment. "You aren't attracted to Peter, are you?"

    Peter inside the ice was not looking too well. His eyes had changed from their normal color to yellow, and that was probably not a good sign.

    Renny shook his head. "I only care for him like a friend would, Glacyra. I'm just really concerned. With the way his transformation is going, I don't know if the magic I learned from Assisto would work in this situation."

    Chip managed to keep his cool, as he piloted as fast as he could to the Gulf Coast, and calmly said, "Here comes the risky part, everyone... Switching to flight mode..." The Crimson Saw then emerged from the sea, and using it's tail fin as if it was in the water, the zord propelled its way through the skies. "I set it to a decent elevation... We should get to Missouri within an hour or two."

    Kamzil, who is now visible to only Chip, remarked, "You seem to know how to pilot your shark machine well, Chip-san."

    "Arigato," replied the Knight.

    Glacyra smiled. "I think we're in some better luck here, Chip. Though the skies seem to be clear of clouds here, it seems to be night, which is strange because I am getting a daytime reading from your instruments. I really hope the Rangers in this world will be able to help us."
    ________________________________________

    Chip nodded, as he worked the controls. "It could be the shroud of 'ever-night' that Owen and the jewel warned us about. Let's hope the local rangers can know that this Shark is out of the water."

    Renny hummed, as he used some of his magic to check if the same Peter was in the frozen Peter's mind, curious if he is okay within the confines of the block of ice. "Hang in there, Peter."

    Through the magic Renny was using, he seemed to mentally hear Peter, faintly and weakly, saying, ...don't touch me, Renny... contagion....

    Glacyra suddenly said, "Chip, radar just detected activity due north of here. Some sort of ship or zord just lifted off from the base of the St. Louis Arch. If those are the rangers, they may accidentally think we're enemies. I just hope you can contact them before they launch an attack. Crashing in this world is not my idea of a good time."

    Chip quickly activated communications on a secure frequency. "Ranger vehicle, please do not attack this Zord. I have someone that needs medical assistance, and we mean no harm. This is the Crimson Paladin. Repeat, please do not attack."

    Renny gasped. Peter... he then looked up. "Glacyra... Peter mentally told me that he shouldn't be touched. He's infected with a contagion."
    ________________________________________

    08-18-2008, 06:17 AM
    Glacyra hummed. "If he somehow told you that, Renny. Then obey and do not touch him."

    Over the communications system, a deep male raspy sounding voice issued, "This is Von Carlos, the Red Wolf Flame Ranger of the Moonwalker Power Rangers of Moravia. You have asked to not be attacked, stranger, and we will comply with that request. When we saw your vessel heading this way, we thought the Vampire Elites had finished their new Battle Cruiser. A place will be provided for you to land at the Hall of Heroes. What is the nature of the medical emergency, if you don't mind my asking?"
    ________________________________________

    Chip replied. "A friend has been attacked and infected with a contagion. We have him 'isolated' for now, but we don't know how long he will stay that way."

    Renny nodded, as he kept away from the melting ice block that held Peter. He was really worried, and he knew that something needed to be done for him quickly.
    ________________________________________

    08-25-2008, 05:14 PM
    Von Carlos replied, "Bring him in fast! Sounds like he has the Moravian Flu! It's what happened to the other humans here on Earth when the Vampire Elites launched their first attack in their search for the lost princess!"

    Glacyra hummed. "I don't think what happened to Peter is a flu virus. That wouldn't explain the claw mark wound on the back of his neck." She was casually looking at the wound through the ice again, though the wound seemed to be slowly healing over even though frozen.

    Peter felt skin irritation all over his body, as his hands and feet began to ache, and his nose and jaw bone also felt enormous pressure building from within. To Renny, he managed to get out one last mental message:

    ...if...I..lose...control....just...kill...me....

    Renny shouted, as he hated the thoughts of killing another; it would make him as bad as the Kitsunes in the Japanese scrolls. "No, Peter... Don't give up hope!"

    Chip shouted, "We are on our way, lead the way or send the landing coordinates." He then tried to bring the Cirmson Saw within proximity of the vehicle."

    Soon, at the Hall of Heroes...

    The Moonwalker Power Rangers of Moravia had gathered upon summoned request, and most were tending to Peter's deteriorating condition of the Moravian Flu. These very odd rangers were all not human at all...

    Von Carlos was a large tall dark furred male werewolf with red tribal markings all over half of his head, particularly over his eyes. He was the Red Wolf Flame Ranger. Morticia was a pale looking banshee like spirit. Female human in appearance, but clearly a vampyr. She was the White Wraith Ghostlight Ranger. Goliath was a large muscular dark purplish black gargoyle that was more shaped like a Shadodrak than a Gargoyle. Though he was clearly as big as Von Carlos, there wasn't anything 'cute' about his strength. He was the Black Gargoyle Midnight Ranger. Dan Chiang appeared to be dressed like a slender Chinese laundry boy, but he was clearly a dark gold colored Kitsune with 7 tails. He was the Gold Kitsune Darksun Ranger. And Sorcera appeared to be a female mummified Egyptian sorceress. She wore blue jewelry and glowed with a pale blue light. She was the Blue Mummy Sorcery Ranger.

    Von Carlos said in his deep male raspy sounding voice, "So you guys are Power Rangers from another dimension. I am sorry you came to visit during this time of crisis. Even sorrier for your infected friend. His life will never be the same, I am sorry to say."

    Sorcera said, "Nasty linkage, but I have isolated and removed the evil thing, Von Carlos. Alas... the changes have progressed too far to reverse. While he no longer will be under evil's sway, he will have to deal with changing into a feral werewolf when the moon in any dimension is full. He will need special training to overcome that aspect of his life."

    Goliath hummed. "Perhaps we should just kill him so he won't cause others pain and suffering and..."

    Dan Chiang slapped the Gargoyle pretty hard! "Idiot! These people came to us for help! There will be no killing the newly awakened! Now or ever!"

    Morticia simply stood there next to Von Carlos quietly. She either couldn't talk, or for her to do so around normal people was _NOT_ desired at any time.

    Glacyra said, "Is Peter conscious enough even to speak?"

    Sorcera replied, "Yes, he is awake, although... his speaking is limited. As I already said, he now has more in common with Von Carlos than who he had been before. His life will not be the same as it was."

    Glacyra nodded her head. "I think Lord Thunderbird can assist with that, as we have had to do something similar before in the past when we dealt with a werewolf. Peter? Are you okay?"

    Peter slowly lifted his new wolf head where the others could see him and tried to speak. "...n-n-n....o... I cun...t.. live... luck... dis... juzz... kill... me...."

    Chip said. "This took us by surprise, we were trying to avoid a confrontation with the dark forces by going through the Panama Canal, and this happens to my friend. We don't want him to be exterminated; he is still my brother's student." He then says. "I am Chip Lonewolf, the Crimson Shark Paladin of the Dreamtrail Dimension. My partial kitsune boyfriend is the Bronze Arch Magi, Ren Reinger, and the lady is Glacyra Yceswan of the Adalia Dimension." Chip was hiding his old instincts as a member of COUNTV. "The person you helped is Peter Haerford. What happened to this dimension to make it change so sudden?"

    Renny said, "None of us will do that, Peter... please have some hope."

    Von Carlos introduced his team by name and designation, then he replied, "The Vampire Elites happened. When they shattered the barrier separating the pocket dimension of Moravia to the Sun Raven dimension, it caused a flood of all of our worlds normalcy to flow out and take over this world. It was an overnight change. They broke the barrier in their search for the lost vampire princess. They thought she had come here to hide from them. The princess's name is Kelly Frost. They haven't found her yet, but the former Power Rangers at the time helped us to gain ranger powers before they transformed just like the other humans had changed. We owe it to them to restore their world and to drive out the Vampire Elites. We are the Moonwalker Power Rangers of Moravia."

    Sorcera then said, "What brought you rangers here originally? As you can see, this is not a paradise to be vacationing in."

    Peter was totally werewolf currently. And he obviously didn't like it. Which is normal for any Lycanthropy victim.

    Renny said, "Our original intentions is to travel to meet other kitsunes recommended by the Moon Goddess Luna, and learn of the culture of a species I didn't know I was. We were originally here to see Dan Chiang. We were told of this by our friend the Atlantean King about the shroud of 'ever-night' that affects this dimension. The last we heard from this dimension, the Dragon Fury Rangers were active."

    Chip walked over to Peter, and squatted down. "Look, Peter, we aren't going to kill you, and that is final. Besides, you look more cunning as a werewolf."

    Dan Chiang then stepped forward and said, "I am honored that you came to see me, but as Sorcera just said, this is not a time of peace. But because Luna has directed you to me, I will give you what time I can spare."

    Glacyra was already helping Peter to his feet, er, werewolf padded furry feet, and was wrapping a blanket around his shoulders. "Don't worry, Peter... I can get you help for your new condition. As Renny just said, it is not a detriment to your abilities. You certainly have nothing to fear from those rogues who walked all over you before."

    Peter sighed. "I'm scared that I'll accidentally infect someone..."

    Renny smiled. "Thank you, Dan Chiang." His tails were swishing, though he felt a bit weird wearing a skirt in public. However, he knew that he was still going through the change from human to kitsune.

    Chip nods. "There are people that have a better knowledge of lycanthrope that can help you, one of them being someone that has been really helpful to my team in the past."

    Dan Chiang, who like the other males of furry design, was not wearing anything except a morpher on his wrist. "Now Renny... tell me how I can be of assistance to you. Being born a Moravian Kitsune, I can tell you that being one is as natural as breathing. We simply are, though our miraculous powers of the arcane is of the utmost rankings. My former master could formulate the spell of Time Alteration. Alas, he is no longer with us and I have not mastered that spell myself."

    Peter looked at Chip. "What if I get hungry during a full moon? What if I hurt someone I care about?"

    Von Carlos said, "You worry too much, Peter. With the contagion removed from your body, you are in control of your new powers. And no one else. When the moon is full, you will find more strength than you had as a human. And during full moon periods, your claws will be able to cleave solid metal, as if it were tin foil. Be pleased that you lived through a transmutation. Many humans did not."

    Glacyra hummed, as she wondered why Von Carlos thought of himself as better than a human.

    Chip was wondering that as well. "Wait one..." He was then stopped by Kamzil, who was closing the redhead's lips. No, Chip-san... I don't think it would be right to talk back to a frightening creature such as Ookami-san.

    Renny was quietly conversing with Dan Chiang, not noticing that his Chippy was trying to protest.
    ________________________________________

    Dan Chiang then took Renny off into another room and was gone for perhaps only a few minutes... then they returned and Renny looked as if he had been somewhere for a few days. Dan had introduced Renny to the Kitsune Codex and he had Renny touch it. And that is why it appeared that Renny was gone a longer while than a few minutes.

    "I hope I was helpful, Renny. You can now access Kitsune powers at will. Perhaps you should make your return journey now. Yes?"

    Glacyra had already taken Peter out to Chip's Zord and was strapping the new werewolf into his seat. "Everything will work out, Peter. Just don't give up on who you were before."

    Peter sighed, looking at Glacyra. "I think I would be better off as a Shadodrak than to be a werewolf."

    Glacyra giggled. "Then Renny would NEVER let you go. And Chip would be jealous."

    Chip smiled. "I'd be curious about a Shadodrak as well," he added with a wink. He then morphed into the Crimson Paladin, and opened a magical hatch to the Sharkmax Zord. "Okay, I think we need to get back to Mount Atlantis."

    Kamzil appeared, still intimidated by the outward appearance of the Crimson Saw. "You are going to be okay, Peter-san," he said as encouragement.

    Renny nodded, and bowed. "Thank you for everything that you helped me with, Dan Chiang. I hope we can meet again under better circumstances."

    Dan Chiang replied, "If we Moonwalkers are successful here, you will probably never see us again. We are not from Earth; we are from the Pocket Dimension of Moravia. For every dimension, there are at least 100 pocket dimensions for each. Please remember that when you go to create one for yourself, Renny. Good luck."

    Glacyra smiled at Chip. "You must have good hearing, Chip. Anyway, I suppose we're ready to head back now. Von Carlos assured me that the storm on the west coast is gone now. We can fly across the country, if desired."

    Peter the Werewolf sighed, as he looked at Renny taking his seat.

    Renny smiled. "You look the same as when I left, Peter. Are you okay?"

    Chip got to the helm controls. "Okay, I am plotting a direct course to the INP at Mu. Owen would be expecting us to return soon." He then plotted the course. "Thankfully, we can get back to the INP faster."

    Kamzil decided to take a nap while Chip was piloting the zord, sleeping on the 'dashboard' for only Chip to see.

    Peter just sighed.

    Glacyra said, "Renny... you were only gone with Dan Chiang for a few minutes. Tops."

    Renny blinked. "What? I thought you were waiting for me for a few days. That was how long Dan Chiang and I were gone."

    Chip hummed as the Crimson Saw took off towards the Northwest. "The way of Ookami and Kitsunes are deep, but I really wonder why Von Carlos was so discriminatory of humans when talking to Peter."

    Glacyra replied, "I think his manner of talking is tribally related. I have heard that different Werewolf tribes have different ideas apart from each other. Therefore, Von Carlos' tribe must believe strongly in their minds and hearts that they are superior to humans. If Peter chooses to join a tribe, he will adopt their beliefs and their ways."

    Peter growled loudly, "I DON'T WANT TO BE A WEREWOLF!!!"

    Chip places the Zord on Autopilot, and walked up to Peter. "Peter, I think I know of a friend that could help you, and she specializes in lycanthrope. You could pray to her, or make a personal visit to her. She is the Moon Goddess Luna. She was really nice to Owen when he started his transformation into the shark he is today, and was helpful when Renny was starting his change as a Kitsune."

    Renny says, "Peter, no matter what happens, you'll be okay."

    Peter sighs, looking at the floor. "...I changed into another Von Carlos... he sounded HAPPY that I was a Werewolf..."

    Glacyra focused on where they were going. She would let the boys bond.

    Renny said, "Peter, no matter what the outward looks, you are still the same person. You are not another Von Carlos by a long shot. You are still the friend that researched the Kitsune culture with me in that Japanese library, and helped take off my shoes when my feet changed."

    Chip nodded, "And you are still my baby brother's student, until you say otherwise. Please don't put yourself down like this. Von Carlos doesn't know what it is like to be a human, and I doubt he ever will. Don't conclude that you would become like him because of what happened."

    Peter sighed. "But he liked it. He said that I smelled good and stuff..." Though the others never heard Von Carlos say that, apparently there was a private conversation that took place that no one besides the canines who were present, after Renny was taken off by Dan Chiang, could hear. "He said that he really liked me how I am now."

    Renny hummed. "We like you no matter what you are, Peter."

    Chip nodded. "If you don't like it, you have every right to do that. It was pushed upon you when you were attacked at the Atlantic end of the Panama Canal. If we were able to get help sooner, it could've been reversed."

    Peter said, "Lets just get back to Dreamtrail so I can shave myself bald. Okay?"

    Glacyra had to smile at the thought, but she kept her mouth shut and her face where the others couldn't see her smiling. wink.gif

    Renny smiled. "That can be arranged easily for right now, but after that is done, I think you'll need something to cover your privates, and not scare Glacyra." He winked.

    Chip laughed. "We should be back at Mount Atlantis within the hour, Peter. Unless we run into a snag, the Crimson Saw will stay on autopilot."

    Glacyra said, "Even if you shaved all the fur off, by the next night, it would be entirely back again. And then there you'd be. Besides... Werewolf Fur can be used in potions to change people into Werewolves, and I don't think you would want to do that to someone else on purpose." She glanced over her shoulder. "Would you?"

    Peter has a particular look on his face that seems to suggest that he _WAS_ thinking about doing that to certain people who didn't treat him right on the station... But then he blushes and gulps. "Um... no...."

    Chip said, "So what are you going to do about this, are you going to mope about your current form, or are you going to do something about it?"

    Renny smiled to Peter. "No matter what, you are still human on the inside, despite what Von Carlos said."

    Peter lifted his head. "I'm not a ranger like the rest of you are. I have nothing to fall back on. Even Renny is a ranger AND a Kitsune. I'm just a Moravian Lycanthropy victim..."

    Glacyra said, "Before you counter him, guys, listen to me. Peter is right about that part. He isn't a standard Lycanthropy victim. He was infected by a Moravian. We don't know how that will hold up back in Dreamtrail."

    Chip and Renny both looked down at that point. "I am guessing that even the transform magic I learned in the Dreamwolf Universe might not work, either..." The kitsune said.

    Chip hummed. "Let's take things one step at a time, Renny. We still have more places to travel to." He then looked to Peter. "Besides, Renny hasn't morphed since I noticed the first tail on him." And I wonder why...

    Glacyra said, "It would take Moravian Magic to restore Peter to normal and you've gotten a small taste of what they are like." She then smiled. "Mount Atlantis is coming into view, Chip. Lets get back over to Dreamtrail."

    Peter was now just sitting there quietly. The sooner they got back on the quests, perhaps the better off he would be.

    Chip got back to the helm of the zord. "Switching to manual..." He then piloted his way to the INP Portal to Dreamtrail. "We should be back in Dreamtrail in just a minute."

    Renny hummed, as he talked to Peter about what happened for the few days he experienced in a few minutes' time.

    End of Adventure Three.
