Abandoned Warehouse

Los Angeles, California

June 4th, 2005

"Victoria! Please put the gun down! You don't know what you're doing!" Jason Lee Scott, the original red ranger and original leader of the power rangers pleaded with his unstable ex-girlfriend as he felt the barrel of the gun being pointed right at his chest. Even though he was tied up and gagged, he was doing the best he can trying to maintain a cool, calm and collected composure as he was being held captive by his deranged ex-girlfriend.

With angry tears streaming down her face and her body shaking uncontrollably, Victoria Jones just shook her head and kept her finger on the trigger. She didn't want to do this, however, in her mentally incompetent state, there was no other choice. If she couldn't have him, she was gonna make sure no one else does; especially that Vietnamese tramp laying on the concrete floor, knocked out from being hit in the back of her head with the butt of the gun Victoria was holding and was currently unconscious.

"I can't do that, Jason. I can't let you go. We were so good together. Why did you have to break up with me? Why you have to break my heart? Why couldn't you just forgive me and take me back? Why did you end up like my father?!" she asked, more tears streaming down her face.

He shook his head in disbelief as he struggled to free himself from the tight rope. "You just don't get it, do you? You cheated on me! You were too possessive and jealous, not to mention you tried to alienate me from my friends. My friends! I've known them much longer than I've known you! Furthermore, I'm not like your father! We both know he was a bastard, but you ended up being just like him! I broke up with you for those reasons, Victoria!"

"How dare you say that I'm like my father?!You should've forgave me and gave me another chance, you fucking bastard! No, I have to see for myself that you're dating your childhood friend and it made me sick to my stomach; seeing you act all lovey dovey with her! You belong to me, Jason Lee Scott! I'm gonna make sure no other girl will come between us; just like I took care of that blond bitch you messed with!" she snapped, pushing the gun further into his chest.

His eyes were bugged out in shock. "Emily? What the fuck did you do to her, you bitch?!"

"First of all, lower your tone and watch your mouth! Second of all, that Emily put her filthy hands on you, so I made sure she disappeared...forever!" she screamed, her face turning beet red.

"WHAT. THE. FUCK. DID. YOU. DO?!" he screamed even louder.

Her smile was eerily and creepy. "Let's just say that she's swimming at the bottom of the ocean after I did some readjusting to the brakes of her car."

"I can't believe you did that, Victoria! Emily and I were over long before I ever even met you! You've clearly lost your goddamned mind!" he snapped, which caused her to whack him in his baby face with the butt of her gun.

"Shut your fucking mouth or else I won't hesitate to blow your fucking brains out, Jason! Now, as I mentioned before, that blond bitch had no business putting her filthy hands on you in the first place, so she had to be taken care of; just like I'm gonna take care of that bitch laying on the floor in a moment. Then, I'm taking you away and I'm never gonna let you go again!" she shouted, gripping the back of his neck tightly and slamming her lips down on his roughly.

Jason was scared out of his mind. His ex-girlfriend has clearly lost her mind and as much as he was trying to do everything he could to diffuse the situation without resorting to any sort of violence, there was no use getting through to her. As far as he's concerned, he can never go back to her after all she put him through.

"I'm sorry, but what we had was over. You ruined that; not me. I've moved on and I'm happy. You need some serious help," he said as he continued to break free from the rope that was slowly cutting off circulations on his wrists.

"I'd take back what I said before, Jason. I won't hesitate you put a bullet in your black heart if you don't say what I want you to say," she hissed lowly, pointing the .38 caliber pistol directly at his chest. It was then that Trinity Jade Kwan, the original yellow ranger and Jason's girlfriend, slowly began to regain consciousness, causing Victoria to lose her focus temporarily.

Sensing a quick opportunity, Jason raised his foot up and kicked the gun right out of Victoria's hands, causing her to shriek out in surprise. Then, silently asking God to forgive him for what he's about to do, he kicked her right in her face so hard, she landed on the floor with a thud and her head was smacked hard against the granite concrete, rendering her unconscious temporarily.

"Oh, man, what the hell happened to me?" the Vietnamese beauty groveled as she sat up on the floor for a moment. After a few more tries, Jason finally broke free from the rope and threw them down on the floor, then he quickly went over to where she was sitting to see if she was okay.

"Baby, are you okay?" he asked as he kneeled down in front of her. She raised her head up to look at him and, although her vision was a little bit fuzzy at first, her boyfriend's handsome face became more clearer a few seconds later.

"I-I'm fine, although I have a knot on my head and sporting a minor headache. What's going on?" Trini asked as she wrapped her arms around his neck to hug him tightly. He helped her up on her feet and pointed his finger at his ex, who was still laying on the floor.

"What the hell is her problem?! Why can't she leave well enough alone, Jason? You broke up with her!" Trini huffed angrily.

"We'll worry about that later, but for right now, I think it's best that we get out of here," he whispered in her ear, which caught Victoria's attention. She quickly regained her composure by getting up off the floor and retrieving the gun that was laying just a few inches away from her. Just as Jason and Trini started to break camp, Victoria quickly blocked their path and pointed her gun right at them.

"You two ain't going nowhere! So I suggest you sit your ass down because we have some unfinished business to attend to," she warned, clicking the gun to prove her point.

However, Jason wasn't fazed and quickly stepped in front of Trini to protect her. "I'm sorry, Victoria, but we're leaving. You've gone too far and there's nothing else for us to discuss. I seriously suggest you get some help."

"You just don't get it, do you, Jason?! If I can't have you, then you can't have life. So you have two choices: either you break up with Trini and come back to me or both of you can be hell!" Victoria hissed menacingly as she cocked her gun once again, rendering Jason and Trini to look at her in shock.

"Victoria, please listen to reason! You need some serious help! Jason doesn't love you anymore! Why are you wasting your time doing something like this?!" Trini said, trying to reason with her.

Victoria just shook her head, her face contorting in anger as she approached them stealthily. "No, you don't get it, Trini! You had no business messing with my man in the first place! My man! So, why don't you just go away?! Jason's mine; always have and always will be!"

"I'm not getting back together with a lying, cheating, psychotic bitch like you! Hell, if anything, I should've never even met you in the first goddamned place!" Jason roared, which caused her to stop right in her tracks.

Those eleven words he said were like a piercing blow to her heart. As time stood still, those same words kept repeating in her head; as if he was taunting her:

I should've never even met you in the first goddamned place! I should've never even met you in the first goddamned place! I should've never even met you in the first goddamned place!

"Y-you don't mean that, Jason. Please tell me you don't mean that," Victoria said, the tone of her voice going from menacing to soft and unsure; tears streaming down her olive toned face.

"Had I known ahead of time what kind of person you turned out to be, I should've never even messed with you in the first place. I'm sorry, Victoria, but you lied to me. You cheated on me. You stalked me and my girlfriend and tried to control me; not to mention you tried to break me and Trini up not once, but twice. Furthermore, you even dragged your father into the mess and you ended up killing him. Why I had to be punished for what your father, your last ex and anyone else had done to you, huh?" Jason asked, lowering his voice.

She just shook her head and tried to regain her composure, but with those eleven words he said earlier was still playing in her head, she was spiraling further out of control. "No, you're just like them, Jason. You're just like them! Stop mocking me! Stop fucking mocking me!"

Jason and Trini watched in horror as Victoria was hitting her head with the butt of the gun she was holding and was screaming like a maniac; even pacing back forth frantically and pulling the strands of her red hair out. They didn't know what to do or what to make of this. The original red and yellow rangers didn't know whether to try and help her or hightail it out of the warehouse to get some help.

Their worried looks at each other only added fuel to the fire.

Victoria kept pacing back and forth like a madman; hitting her head with the butt of the gun she was holding and not noticing that blood was streaming down her face. She couldn't get Jason's taunting voice out of her head as she sunk down on the ground and slammed her hands on the concrete floor, trying desperately to beat the voices out of her head as Jason and Trini just stood there and tried to figure out what they're gonna do next.

"What are we gonna do? Victoria has completely gone off the deep end," Trini whispered in Jason's ear as she clung on to his arm tightly.

He just shook his head in disbelief. "I don't know, but I'd suggest we get out of here while we still have a chance."

"Do you really think we should?" she asked as they slowly began to move away from Victoria, who was still slumped down on the floor in agony.

"Either that or we'll both end up on the receiving end of her gun pointing right at us. As soon as we get outside, we'll go and get some help. But, for right now, I'm more concerned for your safety," he assured her as they started heading towards the front door, hoping against hope that Victoria won't notice them trying to make a desperate escape.

Just when they thought they were in the clear, however, Trini let out a blood curling scream when she felt Victoria's hands gripping her long dark hair and yanking her back roughly, causing Trini to lose her grip on Jason's arm and landing on the floor with a thud. With the pain shooting up her back, Trini had no time to react as Victoria quickly pounced; straddling her on the floor and wrapping her hands around the original yellow ranger's neck tightly.

Jason had to stop in his tracks and was horrified at the sight of Victoria sitting on top of Trini and having her hands around the Vietnamese woman's neck so tightly, Trini's face was turning blue.

"If I can't have Jason, then I'm gonna personally make sure that you can't have him, either, you meddling bitch!" Victoria screamed right in Trini's face as she continued to choke her.

"Please...stop..." Trini stammered, struggling to breathe.

"No! You're dead, bitch! Say goodbye!" Victoria screamed even louder as she increased the grip on Trini's neck.

Realizing that he had to do something in order to save the woman he loves, Jason made a fateful decision. Hoping that God will forgive him for what he's about to, he made a run for it and charged right at Victoria; spearing her off of Trini and causing Victoria to shriek out in surprise. He quickly got up and ran right over to Trini, who was now curled up in the fetal position and struggling to regain her breathing.

Wasting no time, he scooped her up in his strong arms and attempted to run out of the warehouse as quickly as he can. However, Victoria quickly got up off the floor and with her anger reaching new heights, she ran right after them, screaming like a maniac.

"You're not getting away from me, Jason Lee Scott! You're mine!" she screamed as she kept running right behind him.

I just need to get Trini out of here, he thought as he raised his foot up and kicked the door open, then he stepped right outside and proceeded to head towards his car. He quickly opened the passenger's side door and carefully placed Trini right inside, then he closed the door and jogged around before opening the driver's side door and climbed right inside. He reached underneath his seat and grabbed his car keys, then he stuck it inside the ignition, just as Victoria finally made her way outside.

She looked over her shoulder and was outraged in seeing Jason and Trini in the car. Angrily and with her emotions getting the best of her, she ran right over to the vehicle, just as he finally cut the engine on and began peeling away from the parking lot. With her gun in her hands, she starting firing; the bullets hitting the back window as Jason ducked, pulling Trini down to make sure she didn't get hit as he tore away from the warehouse; peering through his rearview mirror as the image of Victoria grew more distant.

"Jason, where are we going?" Trini asked softly as she raised her head up and watching her boyfriend driving frantically.

"I don't know, but I do know that I'm getting us as far away from her as possible. Are you okay, baby?" he asked as he reached over and took her hand into his, squeezing it softly.

"Other than my head hurting and my throat sore, I'm fine. What about you? Are you okay, Rex?" she asked, looking at him in concern.

"I will be when this mess is over with once and for all," he replied, squeezing her hand again for emphasis.

"How in the hell did we end up in this mess?" she asked as she laid her head against the window and closed her eyes, tears streaming down her face.

As he continued driving, Jason had the same thought running through his head as he allowed himself to wander back to where all of this mess got started in the first place...
