The Wedding

    Trakeena: "Where are we going to go now that the fortress is gone? We're homeless." Karone: "Taylor and I have a surprise for you all." Taylor: "Get in the truck." Scorpina: "Where did you get a truck?" Taylor: "I told a salesman who we were and he gave it to us in exchange for some autographs." Zedd: "Cool! People like us!" They all got into the truck and started driving. Karone: "Its really great! You are going to flip!" Zedd: "What is she talking about?" Villimax: "I don't know." Trakeena: "If you drug us all the way out here to show us some little pink hat, I cannot be held accountable for my actions!" Karone: "No no. Look up there." Zedd: "Oh my God! Did you bring us here to tease us?" Taylor: "No. Its ours." They saw a big lovely house with a big yard and a pool. Scorpina: "Who did you sleep with to get that?" Karone: "No one. All I had to do was shake some guy's hand and he gave it to me."  They pulled up in the drive way. They all looked up at it smiling. Trakeena: "We have that big house now. Why are we standing out here?"
    Inside they found it was just as nice. It had a glass ceiling, shiny floors, gold bordered doors. Zedd: "Where's the living room?" Karone led them into the living room. The first thing Zedd saw was the big screen TV build into the wall. Zedd: "Oh the football games I can see on that!" Scorpina: "Oh you are mistaken my dear. General Hospital will look much better on that huge TV." Zedd: "Oh come on!" Villimax whispered in his ear: "Carley." Zedd: "Oh yea. Go ahead. You know that Katlin girl we met looks a lot like her!" Taylor: "Moving on." He led them into the nearest bed room. Taylor: "This room is mine and Karone's." It had pink and silver furniture. Taylor: "We've matched the stuff in the rooms with your ranger colors." Villimax: "Do we have to share rooms like we did on the fortress?" Karone: "No. Taylor and I are going, but you each have your own rooms." Trakeena had wondered into the kitchen. Trakeena: "Hey guys, come see this!" They ran in. Trakeena: "This place is so clean! I'm used to Zedd's burnt crud sitting around!" Taylor: "So I take it you guys like our gift?" Villimax: "Of course. Its wonderful!"
    A few days later, Karone was on the phone. Zedd: "What's she doing? She's been on there all day!" Trakeena: "She's inviting people to the wedding." Karone: "So you can come? That's great!" Kendrix: "Alpha wants to know if he can come." Karone: "Sure! I'd love to see him again!" Karone hung up and called the Aqua Base. Karone: "So tell the captain to give you guys a day off! You've got to come!" Chad: "Ok. I'll get him to let us. By the way, have you seen Ms. Fairweather?" Karone: "Can we talk about that later?" Chad: "Sure." She got off the phone. There's just one more person I'd like to invite, but I don't know if she'll come." Taylor: "Call her and see." Karone: "This should be done in person. I have to tell her I'm sorry anyway." Karone teleported away. Trakeena: "Its great to see her so excited." Scorpina: "You sure you're ready, Taylor?" Taylor: "Of course. I've been ready since the day we met."
    Karone teleported on board the Sub Craft. Divatox: "What do you want?" Karone: "I know we used to fight all the time, but I've come to say I'm sorry. Whatever the problem was between us, can't we put it behind us?" Divatox thought for a minute. Divatox: "Ok. I'm sorry I treated you like that." Karone: "I've also come to ask you to come to my wedding." Divatox: "Wedding! Who are you marring?" Karone: "His name is Taylor. He's on the same ranger team I am." Divatox: "Ok. I'll come. When is it?" Karone: "This coming Friday." Divatox gave her a hug. Divatox: "I'm happy for you." Karone went home very happy.
    It was Thursday night. Karone and Trakeena sat in Trakeena's room talking. Trakeena: "Well tomorrow's the big day. How do you feel? Nervous?" Karone: "A little. There's just one thing bothering me though." Trakeena: "Don't worry about the snoring. They all do that." Karone: "No. That's not it. Its my dad. He's still paying his debt in Hell." Trakeena: "Ecliptor? Couldn't they let him off for good behavior?" Karone: "I don't know." Then a fiery portal opened and Ecliptor walked out. Karone: "Oh my God!" She ran up to hug him. Ecliptor: "I couldn't miss my little princess's wedding." Karone: "How did you get out?" Ecliptor: "I'm done serving my time. I'm free! And lord am I hot!" She laughed. Karone: "Oh, this is my best friend Trakeena." Ecliptor: "Nice to meet you." Karone: "You don't know how many times I wanted you to come back!" Ecliptor: "Oh yes I do. All those time you thought about me. I knew. Thank you. That really means a lot to me. I know I'm not even your real father." Karone: "Don't say that. You might not have been there from the beginning, but you are my dad. There's not question about that."
    That night, Karone couldn't sleep. She and Trakeena sat up talking for hours. Meanwhile, Zedd, Villimax, and Ecliptor were talking to Taylor. Zedd: "Now you have no idea what you're in for. I remember my marriage to Rita well....no matter how much I try to forget. You had better be ready for that shrill voice barking demands. 'Zedd, fight the rangers! Zedd, paint the palace! Zedd, go half way across the galaxy to get me some nail polish!' Its very annoying!" Taylor: "Karone's not like that." Ecliptor: "I don't know about that. She used to beg me for a new toy constantly!" Taylor: "Come on guys." Villimax: "You know we're kidding. Karone's a nice girl." Taylor: "I can't wait for her to be my wife!" Zedd: "You're a lucky man."
    Scorpina walked in Trakeena's room. Scorpina: "Wasn't anybody going to invite me?" Karone: "Sorry, my minds been filled with so much stuff today. Sit down!" Trakeena: "So what's the dress look like?" Karone: "Oh its so beautiful! I don't know how to describe it." They were awake until 4:00 in the morning. Scorpina: "I think we should go to bed. Nothing worse than if you went to sleep at the wedding!" Trakeena: "Yea. Poor Karone, face down in the cake!" Karone playfully pushed her. They eventually went to sleep. Taylor, Ecliptor, and Villimax went to sleep too. Zedd however passed out from drinking to much!"
    The next day, everyone was running around trying to get the last minute stuff done. Zedd and Villimax set the main room of the house up into the perfect place for the wedding. They had many pink folding chairs set up. In front of the chairs was a platform with flowers all over it. Scorpina was at the door greeting the guests. The Galaxy Rangers were the first to arrive. Kendrix and Maya went to Karone's room. She had the dress on and was ready to go. Kendrix: "Oh you look so good!" Karone: "Thanks." Maya: "I wish I had a man like that." Karone: "Thanks for coming." Kendrix: "How many people are coming?" Karone: "We've got a full house!"
    The Space Rangers came in next. Andros and Ashley were holding hands. Andros stuck his head in the door of Karone's room. She and Trakeena were talking quickly. Andros: "Hey sis!" Karone: "Andros, Ashley! Hi!" Ashley: "Congratulations!" Karone: "Thanks. I've really missed you two!"
    Divatox came in in her old black and red dress. Leo: "What kind of a suit for a wedding is that?" Divatox: "I just felt like it. They won't care." The Lightspeed Rangers came in next. They were really excited to be on another planet. Zhane: "Its no big deal." Dana: "Easy for you to say. You're an alien!" Damon: "Really. You guys will go into space soon. I'm sure." Ryan: "We probably will. My zord has to every day to recharge. Its a solar zord." Zedd: "That's interesting."
    Alpha came running into Karone's room. Alpha: "I-yi-yi-yi-yi! You make a beautiful bride!" Karone: "Hey Alpha." She hugged the little robot. Alpha: "This is a nice house. I'm living in a cabin right now." Karone: "Marinoi might not have much technology yet, but its a great place." Alpha: "A robot on a jungle planet, needless to say I get a lot of attention!" Karone smiled. Trakeena came in. Trakeena: "Its time!"
    The guests were seated. Taylor was standing on the platform. Karone came through the door. Ecliptor walked her down the aisle. She stepped up on the platform with Taylor. Then to everyone's surprise, someone teleported in. It was Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Aphrodite: "Hi! Andros asked me to like be the preacher gal here. Do you have your own vows?" Taylor: "I don't know if they're vows, but I've got something to say." Aphrodite: "Cool. Have at it." Taylor: "Karone, I knew I loved you from the moment I saw you. You are the sweetest, most beautiful woman I've ever met and I would be honored if you'd be my bride." Karone: "Taylor, you're the most amazing man I've ever had a relationship with. You were able to cheer me up with just your smile. You're the best thing that ever happened to me. I look forward to spending the rest of my life by your side." Aphrodite: "Do you Taylor take Karone to be your lawfully wedded wife, to love, honor, and cherish, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, as long as you both shall live?" Taylor: "I do." Aphrodite: "And do you Karone to take Taylor to be you lawfully wedded husband, to love, honor, and cherish, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, as long as your both shall live?" Karone: "I do." Aphrodite: "Then by the power vested in me by..well...Zeus and Hera, I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride." Everyone clapped and cheered.
    Later that night at the reception, everyone was standing around talking. Ecliptor got their attention. Ecliptor: "I'd like to make a toast to my daughter and her new husband. I hope you two find happiness together. May your love shine for many years to come." Everyone raised the glasses and drank. Karone: "You know Taylor, all the horror we've been through is over. I just can't believe it." Taylor: "I know. Its great. We can live our lives and raise Sarah in peace."
    Karone and Taylor lived happily for the rest of their lives. Scorpina and Zedd got together a few years later. She and Tricon had their problems. Trakeena and Villimax finally admitted their true feelings for each other. And Sarah grew up wanting someday to follow in her mom's footsteps as the Pink Ranger. And who knows, maybe someday she'll get her wish. Trakeena and Karone stayed best friends. The rangers lived perfect lives.
