Kimberly and Mo Hart were total and complete opposites. While one was in a band and popular, the other was not and a power ranger. The one thing that both of them had in common was they had crushes on the most adorable girls in the world. At least, in their personal opinion. Mo had a crush on Kimberly’s new best friend Trini Gomez. Trini was very closed off and didn’t speak a lot, but Mo just thought that she was adorable. And beautiful. Definitely beautiful. Kimberly had a crush on the lead singer of Mo’s band, Olivia. She couldn’t even describe to you how Olivia made her feel.
Right now, Kimberly was in her room trying to study while Mo’s band, Lemonade Mouth, played downstairs in the garage. It wasn’t like Kimberly didn’t support her sister, but it was annoying that they practiced everyday and chose the Hart household out of all the places that they could have chosen. They could have gone to Wen’s house or Stella’s, but no, Mo suggested that their house become the official band meeting place. Mo had a habit of making decisions without asking for Kimberly’s opinion despite the fact that they were twins. Both of them had a habit of fighting, a lot. Did Kimberly hate her twin? No. Their relationship was just fine until Mo decided to announce that she had a crush on Kimberly’s best friend Trini. The tiny latina was a character and Kimberly would have no problem with her dating Mo except the fact that Trini was her friend and she didn’t trust Mo’s intentions.
Would Mo say the same thing about Kimberly being interested in Olivia? Yes. They both made sure that the other knew how they felt about their crushes. That was why they both made the decision to not date Olivia and Trini. Even though both of them really wanted to. Kimberly noticed that the music had stopped and groaned in relief. If she was going to prepare for that Biology test then she didn’t need Lemonade Mouth playing in the background. A tap on her window broke her out of her textbook and she saw a familiar yellow beanie. Opening the window, Trini stepped into Kimberly’s room and smiled at the taller girl.
“Sup, princess.”, Trini greeted before flopping down on Kimberly’s bed.
“Hey, Trin. You ready for that Biology test?”, Kimberly went back to her desk and sat down.
Trini rolled over so that she was facing Kimberly, “Nope. I mean, this unit was pretty easy if you think about it.”
“What are you talking about? This unit was probably one of the hardest. I don’t even know what’s going on in that classroom half the time.”
“That sounds like a you problem, Hart. I can help you if you’d like?”, Trini sat up and raised an eyebrow at Kimberly.
“That would be really great. Thanks, Trin.”, Kimberly smiled at Trini who just rolled her eyes. The corner of her lips lifted up a smidge and she hoped that Kimberly didn’t see it. She did. Trini stood over Kimberly’s shoulder and looked at the textbook before scoffing, “Oh come on, princess , this stuff is easy. Look,-” Trini proceeded to explain until the blaring of a guitar broke them out of their studying. “Is Mo’s band over?”, Trini questioned.
“Unfortunately. I hate when they come over to practice.”, Kimberly complained while trying to focus back on the textbook.
“I don’t know why Olivia didn’t text me that she was over here.”, Trini reached into her pocket to grab her phone. Pulling it out, she saw that she had one text from Olivia.
Trini, I’m at Mo’s practicing. If you’re with Kimberly come down and say hi!
“Scratch that, she did text me.”, Trini rolled her eyes, pocketing her phone again. Olivia and Trini’s families have been friends since the beginning of time. The two girls grew up together despite Trini’s constant moving around. They always stayed close and when Trini had no one at Angel Grove High, Olivia was there for her. Now, Trini had her power ranger friends. And Kimberly who she was so crushing on. Ever since she first saw the tall, lean brunette in English last year, she has been so smitten.
“Kim!”, Mo’s voice sounded through the house. Kimberly rolled her eyes and walked out of the room to the top of the stairs. Mo was standing there in her dress and wedges, tapping her foot impatiently when she spotted Kimberly. “What took you so long? I don’t have all day! I need to borrow your car.”
“Hell no.”, Kimberly flatly responded and she leaned up against the wall.
“What?! Kim, I have to drive Olivia home since no one else could pick her up.”, Mo tried, but Kimberly wasn’t budging.
“Mo, last time I let you drive my car, you ran it into a street sign. Not happening. Maybe when Trini and I are done, Trini can walk Olivia home.”
Mo perked up at hearing Trini’s name, “Trini’s here?”
“Yeah, she’s in my room.”, Kimberly said and Mo started making her way up the stairs. “Mo, we are studying. You can say ‘hi’ when we are done.”
“Just because we have a deal, Kimberly, doesn’t mean that I can’t talk to her.”, Mo whispered angrily.
Kimberly smiled at her sister, “I know that, but we are busy. Are you guys done playing for the day?”
“Nope, Olivia wrote a new song and we need to rehearse it more. Wen is going on vacation next week and Charlie is going to see Tommy.”, Mo answered smugly. She knew how much her sister hated their band practices.
“What about Stella?”
Mo sighed, “Stella is, well, Stella.”
“You don’t need to say anything else.”, Kimberly held her hand up to get her sister to stop. “I’ll be in my room if you need me.”
“I’ll be in the garage if you need me.”, Mo retorted and made her way back to the garage. Kimberly walked back into her room to see Trini splayed across her bed with her headphones on, death metal blasting through them.
“TRINI!”, Kimberly yelled and watched as the tiny girl jumped off the bed. She landed on the floor with a thud and seconds later, Kimberly was laughing as angry brown eyes stared back at her.
“I hate you.”, Trini grumbled as she stood back up. The taller girl was still laughing and Trini just huffed. “That was not funny, Kim.”
“Yes, it was.”, Kimberly got out and she wiped the tears in her eyes.
“No, it wasn’t.”, Trini tried again.
“Fine, you win.”, Kimberly relented and went back to her desk. They studied for a few more hours, with the Lemonade Mouth playing downstairs loudly, until Kimberly’s door was slammed open and Mo walked in.
“Kim, we need help loading up some-oh hey, Trini!”, Mo excitedly greeted Trini. Trini, being the introverted person that she was, just nodded at Mo. Olivia walked in behind Mo and smiled at Kimberly.
“Hey, Kim.”, Olivia waved meekly at Kimberly who smiled in response.
“Kim, can you help or not?”, Mo jumped back in.
“No, now, go away, Mo.”, Kimberly sassed back and she turned around to her textbook.
Trini got up from the bed and put her hand on Kimberly’s shoulder, “Come on, Kimmy, let’s help out your sister. I think your textbook will still be here when you get back.”
Sighing, Kimberly got up and Trini followed her out of the room. They made it down to the garage to see Charlie, Stella, and Wen all waiting by the equipment.
“Sup, Kim.”, Charlie greeted
“Kim.”, Wen nodded at her.
“Kimmy, I didn’t know you were here.”, Stella walked up to the brunette and hugged her. “Hey, shorty.”, Stella ruffled Trini’s beanie and laughed when the girl scowled.
“Stop calling my that, Stella.”, Trini fixed her beanie, glaring at the girl in front of her. Mo walked up next to Trini and put a hand on her shoulder.
“Alright, let’s get this stuff packed up.”, Mo clapped her hands and everyone began putting the gear in Wen’s truck. When they finished, Charlie, Wen, and Stella took their leave. Olivia stayed since Trini was going to be walking home with her. Going back inside, Mo volunteered to make some food for everyone.
“Sure.”, Olivia shrugged and Kimberly nodded. Trini just held a thumbs up and the three went into the living room while Mo made dinner. Their parents wouldn’t be home from their business trip until tomorrow. Dinner was ready and the girls moved to the table.
“So, Olivia,”, Kimberly started the conversation at the table, “I heard that you wrote another song. When will we hear it?”
“I want to know too.”, Trini shoveled more of the spaghetti into her mouth.
Olivia blushed, “Well, once Mo gets the bass line down then we can premire it to you guys.”
“It’s not my fault! Charlie can’t get the right drum beat.”, Mo huffed.
Olivia just placed a comforting hand on Mo’s arm, “No, Mo, it’s you.” Kimberly burst out laughing and Trini chuckled.
“We should head out soon, Olivia. My mom is blowing up my phone and your grandmother is probably wondering when you’re gonna be home.”, Trini stood up and Olivia stood up with her.
“Ok. Bye, Mo. Bye, Kim.”, Olivia said.
“See ya tomorrow, princess. Mo.”, Trini nodded at Mo and the two girls left.
“We are so-”
“Fucked.”, Kimberly finished for her sister.
“Good, Kimberly!”, Jason praised as Kimberly took down another putty. She had been trying not to get distracted, but Trini decided to wear only a sports bra and shorts today. It completely threw her for a loop and she had been hit by a putty at least 10 times. “Alright, training is over for today.”, Jason clapped his hands and everyone made their way out of the pit.
“Hey, Kim.”, Trini sped up so that she could walk side by side with Kimberly.
“Hey, Trini. You wanna come over?”, Kimberly asked.
“Yeah, sure.”, Trini answered and the two walked to Kimberly’s house. When they got there, Kimberly noticed that her car wasn’t in the driveway. “Kim, where’s your car?”
“Mohini Hart you are so dead.”, Kimberly pulled out her phone and dialed Olivia’s number.
“Hey, Olivia, it’s Kim. So, I was wondering, is my car at your house?”
“Yeah, Mo’s here why?”
“Thanks.”, Kimberly hung up and turned to Trini. “Mo took my car without asking. If she crashes my fucking car then I’m going to kill her!”
Trini put a hand on Kimberly’s arm, “Breathe, Kim. Please don’t kill your sister. I really don’t want to have to help you hide the body.” They laughed and went inside. “Wanna watch a show?”
“Yeah. How about Riverdale?”, Kimberly suggested.
“Sounds cool. I’ll get the popcorn.”, Trini bolts into the kitchen to make the popcorn. Kimberly chuckles and sits down on the couch, pulling up Netflix on the TV. After a few minutes, Trini comes in with the popcorn and puts it between them. “Start the show, Hart.”
By the time that they were on episode three, they had moved the popcorn bowl out of the way and the two were snuggled together. The front door opening brought Kimberly’s attention away from the TV and she turned around only to have rage boil her up.
“Hey, Mo.”, Kimberly tilted her head to the side and smiled as her sister looked at her with wide eyes.
“Kim! I thought you would be out.”, Mo nervously shifted from foot to foot.
“Oh, I would have been out, but I didn’t have my car.”, Kimberly stood up and crossed her arms.
“Well, I saw it in the driveway.”, Mo didn’t look up from the ground.
“You bitch! I can’t believe you took my car! I cannot fucking believe you! The only reason that I have a car and you don’t is because you fucking crashed yours!”, Kimberly felt her anger getting the best of her until she heard a whimper next to her and looked down to see Trini, knees drawn up to her chest. “Trin, I’m so sorry. I forgot that you don’t like yelling.”, Kimberly hugged her friend who was slightly shaking.
“It’s fine. I’m fine.”, Trini reassured Kimberly who nodded and turned back to her sister.
“Is she ok?”, Mo asked with a concerned look on her face.
Kimberly sighed, “Yeah, she’s fine. She just doesn’t like yelling.”
“I’m sorry, Kim.”, Mo apologized.
“Just go away, Mo.”, Kimberly sat down next to Trini and wrapped an arm around her. Mo stood there for a moment before making her way upstairs. Trini nuzzled her face into Kimberly’s neck and sighed. As they sat there, Kimberly got an idea on how to get back at her sister. “Hey, Trin.” The girl looked up at her. “Will you go on a date with me?”
Trini’s eyes widened as she sat up, “Are you serious?”
“Dead serious. So?”
“Yes.”, Trini hugged Kimberly and suddenly, Kimberly felt guilty. She was about to use her best friend as a way to get back at her sister. This was not going to end well.
Chapter 2: Chapter 2
Mo tries to apologize to Kimberly and it backfires big time. Trini and her parents "talk".
Trini waved goodbye to Kimberly and skipped all the way back to her house. Just as she was about to go through her window, she thought about how she should tell Olivia. After all, they are best friends. She walked to Olivia’s house and knocked on the door. The blonde opened the door and smiled when she saw Trini, immediately opening the door further to let the other girl in. Olivia’s grandmother greeted her and the two went up to Olivia’s room.
“So, it’s literally dark outside and you’re here. What happened? Oh did something happen with Kimberly?”, Olivia all too eagerly asked.
Trini blushed, “Yeah, actually, Kimberly asked me on a date.”
Olivia screeched and leapt off the bed to hug Trini, “OH MY GOD!! I can’t believe that she finally asked you out!”
Trini returned the embrace, feeling herself smiling at her friend’s excitement. Pulling back, Trini looked at Olivia’s glee filled face, “Now we just have to get Mo to ask you out.”
“That’s never gonna happen. According to Stella, Mo has some crush on a random girl.”, Olivia shifted her gaze to the floor.
“When can u ever take Stella’s word for the truth?”, Trini flopped down on Olivia’s bed.
Olivia shrugged, “She said that Mo texts her all the time about how cute the girl is. Apparently the girl is friends with Kimberly.”
Trini sat up in her elbows, “Well, at least you know that Mo is bi. Kim is too.”
“The Bisexual Hart Twins.”, Olivia snickered as she sat down next to Trini. At that moment, Trini’s phone buzzed and she pulled it out to see that it was a text from her mother.
Get home now.
Rolling her eyes, Trini hopped off the bed, “My mom just texted me saying that I need to get home. I’ll talk to you later, O.”
“Bye, T. You better text me more details about the date with Kim.”, Olivia shouted at Trini as the smaller girl jumped out of the window. She chuckled as she walked back to her house. As she opened the door, the smile fell from her face as she spotted her mother sitting on the couch with her father next to her. That could only mean one thing: family talk. The past Gomez family talks had consisted of Trini being yelled at for her clothes, amount of communication, and grades. The looks on her parents faces told her that this wasn’t going to be one of those normal family talks. Her mother gestured for her to sit down and Trini warily took a seat in front of both of her parents.
Her father spoke first, “Trini, we know that you don’t like to talk, but we really need you to tell us something. We don’t know how you’re doing or if you’re being bullied or if you’re dating someone. Can’t you just tell us something?” Trini sat in silence. She didn’t have to tell them anything and she wasn’t planning on it. A hand slammed down on the table and Trini brought her eyes up to see her mother staring back at her with furious eyes.
“Trini, I have put up with a lot from you. First, your “vow of silence.””, hearing her mother say that, Trini glanced down at her jeans and thought about the reason that she had stopped talking to her parents. People had bullied Trini her whole life for various things. Her size, her being gay, and her style. There was also the classic “if you’re quiet then I’m going to make you feel like shit” which was another one of the main bullying factors for Trini. She also thought about how her parents were such bigots. Her mother’s sharp voice broke her out of her thoughts, “Then there was that mistake with that Emily girl and your sense of style. So please, Trini, just tell us something.” The two looked at her with pleading eyes, but Trini just sat there looking at the ground.
“Alright. Go up to your room.”, her father sat back, defeated, as Trini made her way to the stairs. Did Trini love her parents? Of course she did, but she didn’t feel like talking to such hate filled people. When she reached her room, Trini dropped her bag on the floor and calmly laid down on her bed. Grabbing her headphones, she shoved them on her head and let the screams take her away. The one thing that made her smile was the thought of Kimberly Hart dancing through her head. Slowly, Trini’s eyes began to close and sleep grasped her.
Mo understood why Kimberly was mad. It was uncool of her to take her sister’s car without asking, but Olivia needed help with making a bass line for a song. The one thing that broke Mo’s heart the most was hearing Trini whimper as Kimberly was yelling. It was one of the saddest sounds that Mo had ever heard in her life besides the sound that Kimberly made when they were five and she broke her arm. At the moment, she was lying in bed trying to figure out a way to apologize to Kimberly without making her even more pissed off. While thinking she found herself falling asleep and she soon woke up to the sound of her door slamming open. Kimberly was standing there, dressed and ready for the day, with her arms crossed and a blank look on her face.
“Get up or we are gonna be late.”, Kimberly said in a monotone voice before walking away. Mo sighed as she got ready in her normal floral dress with wedges. When she got to the kitchen, Kimberly was washing off her plate at the sink. There was a plate on the table with some food on it and Mo sat down to eat when Kimberly grabbed it from in front of her. “We’ll stop for donuts.”, Kimberly walked away with the plate in hand and Mo groaned.
“Alright, Kim, I’m sorry ok? I shouldn’t have taken your car out without asking your permission. Now can we please move on?”, Mo stood up and looked at her twin, who still had her back to her.
Dropping the plates in the sink, Kimberly turned around, “Ok.”
“Thank god.”, Mo sighed in relief and Kimberly turned back around.
“I’m gonna need your help picking out an outfit. I have a date tomorrow night.”, Kimberly stated. Mo squealed and hugged her sister from behind. Releasing her, she grabbed her shoulders to make the girl face her.
“Finally! I can’t believe you are back on the scene. Who is it?”, Mo was so excited that she didn’t even notice the devilish smirk on Kimberly’s face.
“Trini.”, Kimberly deadpanned and she watched her sister’s face fall in disappointment. Mo took a step back and looked into Kimberly’s eyes to see if she was lying. The Hart’s expressed their feelings through their eyes and Mo saw smugness.
“You’re not lying. You seriously asked out Trini.”, Mo was still frozen in place. “I can’t believe you!”
Mo felt her face get red, “You know that I like Trini and you still asked her out! Is this just to get back at me?”
The corner of Kimberly’s lips curled up, “Maybe.”
“Are you kidding me? That is the most insensitive and reckless thing that you have ever done, Kimberly! Do you know how much this will hurt Trini?!”, Mo stood there with her mouth agape.
“I didn’t ask her out to get back at you.”, Kimberly lied.
Mo huffed and turned around to grab her bag, “Whatever, Kim. I don’t need a ride to school.” Just as Mo was about to walk out the door, she turned back to Kimberly, “You know, Ty was right. You really are the meanest person I have ever met.” The door slammed shut and Kimberly let a tear roll down her cheek. Grabbing her car keys, Kimberly made her way to school, trying to forget her fight with Mo. While the two had their differences, they had always managed to make up, but this time it felt different. Mo had been one of the only people besides Trini and Jason to know what Ty had said to her. In fact, Mo had actually been the one who punched Ty’s tooth out the day after he said that to Kimberly and Kimberly took the fall for her sister. As she pulled up to the school, she spotted Trini standing with the other rangers. When she got out of her car, a flash of blonde crossed her vision and she spotted Olivia pulling her bike to a stop. The blonde hopped off and greeted Wen who was waiting for her.
“Kim.”, Trini’s voice snapped Kimberly out of her daze and she looked down to see the tiny latina smiling up at her. She was wearing a band t-shirt, ripped jeans, her usual converse, and topped off with her signature yellow beanie.
Kimberly tried to give her the most genuine smile, “Hey, T. Excited for our date tomorrow?” The tall brunette threw an arm over Trini’s shoulder and the two made their way to the boys.
“Yep. We aren’t going anywhere fancy right?”
“Nah, that doesn’t really seem like our scene. How about Krispy Kreme?”, Kimberly asked and watched as Trini’s face lit up at hearing the name. The tiny girl furiously nodded her head and Kimberly laughed at her excitement.
“Trini!”, Olivia ran over to where the two girls were standing. “Hey, Kim.”, she sheepishly waved at Kimberly who was too shocked to respond. Mo and the rest of the band walked up behind Olivia and Mo crossed her arms. She glared at her sister who merely ignored her.
“We heard that you two are going on a date.”, Mo deadpanned and she looked back and forth between the two girls. Kimberly shot her a warning glare before looking back at Trini.
“Yeah, we are.”, she smiled and Trini fell into her embrace. That just made Kimberly feel more guilty by the second. Trini actually liked her and she was using her in her little game. Don’t focus on that, Kim. We have to teach Mo a lesson. Olivia squealed with joy and grabbed Mo’s arm. Kimberly growled subtly under her breath and her sister seemed to notice as she put her hand on top of Olivia’s.
“Kim, are you ok?”, Trini gazed up at her with these adorable brown eyes that shone in the light.
Getting lost in them for a second, Kimberly shook her head and responded, “Yeah, I’m fine. We have Biology, so we’ll see you later?”
“Of course. See you in math, T!”, Olivia waved goodbye to the two girls and led Mo away from them. As they were walking to Biology, Kimberly thought about how devastated Mo looked and how excited Olivia was for them. No matter what, she would have to drag this out to keep from breaking Trini’s heart.
Mo sat in her English class, twirling her pen in her fingers. It was hard for her to focus on the benefits of Shakespeare when her sister was going on a date with HER crush. How could Kim do that to her? First, Scott dumps her and now her sister is betraying her. She knows that what she said this morning was uncalled for, but Kimberly had hurt her in a way that was just unnecessary. Mo just used her car it’s not like she killed someone. Although she might as well seeing as the punishment that Kimberly was giving her was to that extent. Ok, so maybe she was being a little dramatic, but still, this was ridiculous! Feeling a tap on her shoulder, Mo looked over to see Olivia smiling at her.
“What are you thinking about?”, Olivia asked with a glint in her eye.
Mo smiled at her friend, “Nothing.”
“Really? I know that you aren’t thinking about whatever crap the teacher is spewing, so tell me, what are you thinking about, Mo?”, Olivia raised an eyebrow and Mo felt her facade fall.
“I had a fight with Kim and I don’t know if I can fix it.”, Mo looked down at her hands, fidgeting with the bottom of her shirt.
Olivia put a hand over Mo’s to try and get them to stop fidgeting. “You can fix it. She’s your sister and that means that she will forgive you. I mean, you’re twins! That’s the closest that siblings can get, without it being considered incest.” Mo laughed at Olivia’s comment and the two burst into a fit of giggles.
“I don’t know. When something happens to Kim, she holds a grudge pretty well.”, Mo wiped the tear that rolled down her cheek. While she hated Kimberly for asking out her crush, it hurt her to know that her sister was willing to hurt her that bad in order to make herself feel better. That’s when an evil idea popped into Mo’s head. If Kimberly was willing to do that to her then she was willing to do the same. “Hey, Olivia, can I ask you a question?”
Olivia looked at her and smiled, “Of course, Mo. Anything that you need just tell me.”
“Will you go on a date with me?”
I'm back guys! It has been such a long week without being able to write. Sorry that I left the chapter on a cliff hanger, but the next chapter will be coming out soon. Like probably tomorrow. This is also a shorter chapter, but hopefully the next on will be longer.Thanks so much for reading and I love you guys!
Chapter 3: Chapter 3
You'll see. ;)
Olivia practically skipped to her next class after Mo had asked her on a date. Of course she had said yes because, well, what was she supposed to say? No? God, she couldn’t wait to tell Trini. Both of them had finally gotten what they wanted: The Hart twins. She and Trini had to go shopping for the perfect outfit. Oh, how Trini would hate her for dragging her around the mall, but who cared? She had a date with Mohini Hart! Ok, saying her full name was weird, but she was still skipping through the hallways when she spotted Trini. She ran over to the smaller girl and wrapped her in a huge embrace, forgetting for a second how much Trini hated being touched.
“Um, O? Can you let go of me now?”, Trini grumbled and Olivia dropped her arms from the smaller girl’s waist. “Ok, you’re excited about something. What is it?”
Olivia thought about making her guess, but she was just too excited, “Mo asked me on a date!” Trini’s face brightened and she smiled widely.
“That’s great, O! Oh no, are you going to drag me to the mall after school?”, Trini knew what Olivia going on a date meant. She remembers talking about it with her when they were 14 and how Gram, Olivia’s grandmother, had contributed to the conversation as well. Olivia had stated that if they ever both go a date with the Hart twins then they would spend a whole day at the mall together, mind you they were 14 and Trini was still as resistant then as she is now. “Alright, I’ll be ready by the time we get out. Meet me at my locker. We have English, let’s go.”, Trini grabbed the excited blonde’s hand and they made their way to English.
English was terrible considering that Olivia never calmed down and Trini had to sit there as she wrote Olivia Hart about a million times in her notebook. Rolling her eyes, Trini tried to focus on her work, but Olivia jumping up and down in her seat was distracting. When lunch finally rolled around, Trini grabbed her again and literally forced her out of the room. Getting to the lunch table, Trini sat down and sighed. Kimberly came up next to her and kissed her cheek, noticing that something was wrong.
“What’s wrong, T?”, Kimberly asked as she opened her lunch. Trini just put her head in her hands, tired from Olivia’s excitement.
“Olivia is excited and when Olivia gets excited, she gets unbearable.”, Trini groaned and scooped up a forkful of mac and cheese.
Kimberly chuckled, “What’s got her so excited?”
“Mo asked her on a date.”, Trini told her and Kimberly froze mid chew. Mo asked Olivia on a date?! How could Mo do this to her? What was wrong with her sister?! Trini noticed that something was off and put a comforting hand on Kimberly’s arm, “Hey, are you ok?”
“What? Yeah, I’m fine. Just thinking about how gorgeous you’re going to look tomorrow.”, Kimberly gave her a face smile and watched as the smaller girl blushed.
“Thanks, Kim.”, Trini mumbled and they ate the rest of their lunch, each thinking about their date. Or rather, Kimberly thinking about Mo’s date. The bell rang and Kimberly quickly kissed Trini’s cheek before sprinting to find her sister. Spotting her in the hallway next to Charlie, Kimberly grabbed her arm and yanked her into the girl’s bathroom.
“What the hell do you want, Kim?”, Mo snapped as she crossed her arms. She didn’t care what her sister had to say anymore.
“You asked Olivia out on a date?!”, Kimberly yelled at her twin. Mo smirked and just unfolded her arms before moving forward in a threatening way.
“Yes. I mean, you’re interested in Trini now and I all of a sudden found that I was interested in Olivia.”, Mo watched her sister’s hands curl into fists. “Cruel, isn’t it? Well, I have places to be, Kim, so if you don’t mind I will take my leave.” Turning her back on her sister, Mo made her way towards the door, but a hand on her arm jerked her back.
“You may have won the battle, Mohini, but I’ll win the war.”, Kimberly snarled in her face, walking out of the bathroom. A few tears escaped Mo and she quickly wiped them away, putting her head high before walking out of the bathroom as if nothing happened. Kimberly was right. This was war. Mo walked into her class late and took her seat beside Wen. He looked at her, concern etched on his face, when he tapped her shoulder. “What?!”, Mo snapped at him and he put his hands up defensively.
“You were late for class and you’re never late. Did something happen? Was it Scott’s new girlfriend threatening you again?”, Wen was genuinely concerned and Mo smiled at him.
“I’m fine, Wen. Thanks and no it wasn’t Scott’s new girlfriend. I don’t really care about him anymore.”, Mo looked behind him to see her favorite yellow beanie moving about. Trini was scribbling down notes as fast as she could and Mo couldn’t help but notice how cute she looked. Feeling someone’s gaze on her, Trini looked up to see Mo staring at her with something that she couldn’t recognize in her eyes. Waving at the girl, she watched as Mo quickly turned her head away, blushing furiously. That’s odd Trini thought and she went back to scribbling away in her notebook.
“Come on, Trini! Walk faster!”, Olivia was literally dragging Trini across the mall. When school ended, Olivia bounded over to Trini’s locker and waited, impatiently, for the smaller girl to get there. Trini wasn’t excited. Going to the mall was the equivalent of torture for her. “Trini!”, Olivia yelled at her once more and Trini rolled her eyes.
“Let’s make this quick means ‘let’s find what we need and get out in 20 minutes’, it does not mean ‘let’s be here for 4 hours and say no to every outfit that Trini picks out for HERSELF!’”, Trini whined and Olivia rolled her eyes at Trini’s antics.
“You have to look sexy for Kimberly!”, Olivia tried, but Trini wasn’t having any of it.
“Oh my god, we picked out your outfit in like 5 minutes and it looks like something you normally wear. Why can’t we just pick out something that I would normally wear? I mean, Kimberly said that we aren’t going anywhere fancy.”, Trini was tired and her feet hurt. The superpowers didn’t help with the day to day pains of life. “You also have band practice in, oh, 1 hour ago.”
Olivia whipped her head around, “What?! Crap, I missed practice!”
“So did I.”, Trini mumbled under her breath, but she knew that she had texted the rangers saying that Olivia was forcing her to go shopping.
“Alright, fine, Trini. You win. We’ll go. I expect you to wear something new for your date though!”, Olivia pointed a finger at Trini who just nodded her head and the two left the mall. They got into Trini’s car and practically ran over everyone to get to the Hart household. When they walked in, Olivia ran down to the garage to see Mo sitting there on one of the amps. She was tuning her bass and looked up when she heard Olivia barreling down the stairs. “I am so sorry, Mo! I got caught up with Trini at the mall and didn’t check the time!”, Olivia was panicking.
Mo chuckled and held up a hand to stop her, “It’s fine, Olivia. Really. Wen needed to help his dad with something, Charlie’s mom called him home, and Stella is heading out of town. Looks like you and I are going to be practicing alone for a little while.”
“Oh thank god.”, Olivia dropped herself into one of the seats and let herself breathe again. “So, where are we going on our date?”, Olivia turned to Mo, smiling widely.
“Um, how about Lenny’s?”, Mo asked nervously. Wait, why was she nervous about her date with Olivia? Wasn’t she supposed to be nervous if she actually liked the person that way?
“Sweet, so do you want to practice the new song?”, Olivia blushed when she thought about performing alone with Mo. Smiling, Mo nodded her head and stood up, offering Olivia her hand. The two began practicing, stealing glances at each other while playing. Mo was so fucked.
Meanwhile, Trini made her way upstairs to Kimberly’s room, only to open the door to see a sweaty Kimberly, in nothing but her sports bra and shorts, lying on her bed breathing heavily. Trini froze on the spot and just stared at the beautiful goddess in front of her, mouth agape. The girl opened one eye and smiled when she saw Trini staring at her, looking like a gay mess. She turned to her side, going into a seductive pose which made Trini blush even more.
“See something you like?”, Kimberly said flirtatiously and saw Trini gulp.
“Would it be wrong if I said yes?”, Trini took a step forward, slowly making her way towards the bed. When she sat down on the mattress, Kimberly sat up and wrapped her arms around Trini’s shoulders, putting her head in Trini’s neck.
“You missed practice today.”, Trini could feel Kimberly frowning in her neck.
Chuckling nervously, Trini looked down at the big brown eyes that stared back at her, “I was shopping with Olivia. For our date.”
“What did you get?”, Kimberly took her head out of Trini’s neck and moved her arms to the tiny girl’s waist.
“Um, well, Olivia got something, but I didn’t find anything.”, Trini was getting a little uncomfortable with the contact, even though it was Kimberly. She had never been a big fan of touching, just like Billy, and it took her a while to get comfortable with how touchy all of the rangers were. That was one of the things that Trini had bonded with Billy over. That and Rita.
Kimberly felt the girl start to get tense and respectively unravelled herself from Trini, “Sorry if that was too much touching for you. You’re just so cute.”, Kimberly pinched her cheeks and Trini grumbled, swatting her hands away.
“I am not cute. I’m a power ranger.”, Trini puffed out her chest and Kimberly laughed at how cute Trini looked.
“That was adorable.”, Kimberly stood up and went over to her desk to grab her phone.
“The way that you puffed out your chest.”, Kimberly turned to look at the smaller girl, who was glaring at her.
“I am not cute.”, Trini stood up challengingly.
“Yes, you are.”, Kimberly sing-songed.
“No.”, Trini took a step closer.
“No.”, another step.
“Yes.”, Kimberly pressed herself against the desk as Trini kept stepping forward.
“No.”, Trini was finally pressed up against Kimberly. Their faces were so close that Trini could feel Kimberly’s breath hitting her forehead. Noticing the position that they were in, Kimberly decided to take advantage of it and leaned down, capturing Trini’s lips in hers. It was a was soft, passionate kiss and Trini gasped into Kimberly’s mouth. Fireworks exploded behind Kimberly’s eyes and she pressed herself more firmly into Trini. As the kiss got more heated, Trini lifted the taller girl and placed her on the desk. Pulling away, Kimberly turned her head to reposition and kissed Trini again. Trini never thought that she would ever kiss Kimberly Hart, especially before the first date. Kimberly suddenly felt heat hit her in her core and she began grinding onto Trini, and when the girl felt this, she pulled away. “We can’t do this, yet.”, Trini pressed a hand to Kimberly’s shoulder, pushing the girl away from her.
“I know. It probably isn’t the best idea.”, Kimberly watched as Trini backed away on shaky legs. Hopping off the desk, she grabbed Trini’s hand and the girl looked up at her, “Hey, it’s ok. We don’t have to kiss again until you’re ready.” Kimberly put a hand on Trini’s cheek and the smaller girl smiled at her.
“Thanks, Kim. I just got a little nervous and-”
Kimberly interrupted, “You don’t have to explain yourself to me, Trini. We won’t do anything until you’re ready. I promise.” Trini’s phone took that moment to buzz and Kimberly’s buzzed as well.
Guys, I just got really sexually aroused. Zack, is it you again?
No and that was ONE time, Jason!
Of course it wasn’t, Billy. You’re too innocent. Wasn’t me. What about you, Kimmy?
Kimberly growled at Trini and looked up from her phone to see the tiny latina smiling at her, “I hate you.”
“No, you love me.”, Trini shot back. “I have to go. See ya later, Kimmy.” Trini grabbed the straps on her bag and made her way out of the Hart household before she remembered Olivia. As she walked back to the house, her phone buzzed and she laughed when she saw Kimberly’s reply.
The Hotter Twin
Screw you, Trini.
You wish, Hart!
Kimberly saw Trini’s message and sat in a huff on her bed. Kimberly was so fucked.
Mo and Olivia had practiced for a while before Mo sat down, exhausted. She looked up at Olivia, who was staring down at her writing notebook with her pencil between her teeth. God, she looked so cute. Wait, no you think that Trini is cute. Right? Shaking her head of the thoughts, Mo stares down at her bass when she hears Olivia mumbling the words to the song.
“Do you want to try it again?”, Mo prepared herself to stand up when Olivia rushed over and pushed her back down.
“No, no. You rest, I just need to fix a few things with the lyrics.”, Olivia sat down next to her and wrote down a few things. She continued to write down and Mo just watched her with admiration. “Ok, so I think-” Olivia was cut off by Mo slamming her lips onto her own. The kiss was heated, but passionate and Olivia saw stars. Mo was also relishing in the feeling of the kiss when footsteps coming down the steps interrupted them. Detaching herself from Olivia, they stared at each other before someone cleared their throat. Trini was leaning against the doorway with a smirk on her face.
“O, it’s time to leave. Good to see you again, Mo. You guys sounded great.”, Trini walked over to Olivia and grabbed her hand, effectively dragging her out of the garage. Olivia was still staring, hopelessly, at Mo as Trini dragged her out of the Hart house. When they got into Trini’s car, Olivia finally snapped back into reality.
“Woah.”, was the only word that she uttered.
Trini laughed and started the car. “We both had some fun today.” They drove off, leaving both Hart sister’s a confused bisexual mess. Kimberly sat in her room thinking about how kissing Trini felt so right, while Mo sat in the garage with a hand on her tingling lips. They were so fucked.
I just wanted to say how thankful I am for y'alls support and love for the story. You're positive comments and feedback really help me keep going and I can't thank you enough for that. I hope you enjoyed the chapter! I decided to have them kiss BEFORE the first date because I wanted each sister to realize how deep they had truly gotten themselves. Thank you so much for reading and next chapter should be up either tomorrow or tonight!
Chapter 4: Chapter 4
Kimberly and Trini's date.
Mo spent the rest of the night in her bed, thinking about how electric that kiss was. Even if it was only a few seconds, before Trini interrupted, it was still the most passionate kiss that Mo had ever endured. What was happening to her? Maybe she was just upset because Kimberly asked out Trini and that was why she was feeling this way. Totally. That’s a reasonable explanation. She turned to her side and let herself fall into a deep sleep.
The sun was bright and shining. Mo was waking up from her sleep to kisses on her face and when she looked up, she saw Trini staring at her with a bright smile on her face. She leaned down to give Mo a warm kiss on the lips. Mo tangled her hand in Trini’s hair and when the smaller girl pulled away, Mo smiled.
“Morning, love.”, Trini pressed one more quick kiss to her lips before getting out of the bed. Mo watched her wife with adoration and smiled when Trini looked back at her with a smile.
“I love waking up to you.”, Mo propped herself on her hand and gazed at Trini. The smaller girl smiled and kissed her again. Loud voices sounded through the house and Trini chuckled, placing her forehead on Mo’s collarbone.
“Remind me why we let Zack move in again?”, Mo questioned, grabbing Trini by the shirt to pull her into another kiss.
“Why don’t you remind me why we let Stella move in?”, Trini kissed her one last time before walking out of the room to referee the fight that had broken out between Stella and Zack. The two hated each other and while everyone was waiting for them to just sleep together, they were waiting for the other to just drop dead. A crash sounded and Mo jumped out of the bed to see Zack and Stella lunging at each other while Trini was literally holding them both back. As she stepped closer, Trini turned around to give her a reassuring smile. Only it wasn’t Trini. It was Olivia. The blonde smiled before yelling at the two idiots while Mo stumbled down the hallway. Darkness soon surrounded the vision and-
Mo shot up in her bed to loud banging on her door. With a shaky breath, she opened the door to see Kimberly standing there, impatiently tapping her foot. When Mo opened the door, she sighed with relief.
“We are twenty minutes late for school, you idiot! Get dressed!”, Kimberly ran down the hallway to go grab her bag and Mo went through her morning routine in record time. They were out the door five minutes later and when they reached the school, both of them were bounding to the front doors. Mo reached her class only to see the one person she hoped to avoid today. Trini. She hoped that Trini didn’t notice the look on her own face, which was one of pure shock and fear, and averted her gaze from the brunette. Giving the teacher a lame excuse, Mo shuffled to her seat, making sure to avoid Trini’s confused gaze. As the class went on, Mo zoned out, but was brought back when the teacher said that they needed partners. Without any of her bandmates in this class there was only one person that Mo knew: Trini. The smaller girl was in front of her desk in record time, looking at her with a pleading look.
“Mo, would you like to be partners?”, Trini asked, tapping her foot and looking behind Mo nervously.
“Yeah, sure.”, Mo moved her things over so that Trini could sit next to her. When she looked behind her to see what Trini was looking at nervously, she spotted Tommy Oliver, who was gazing at Trini with a particular glint in her eye. Oh, how much Mo hated that. Grabbing the back of Trini’s chair, she pulled it closer to her, effectively startling the tiny girl. She glared at Tommy who only raised an eyebrow back, causing rage to boil up inside of Mo. She threw her arm over the back of Trini’s chair and turned around. When she looked beside her, Trini had a hand over her mouth to keep from laughing. “What?”
“I’m guessing that you saw Tommy.”, Trini managed to get out without laughing.
“Yeah. Doesn’t she know that you’re mi-Kimberly’s?”, Mo hoped that Trini didn’t catch her mistake.
She didn’t. “No, I don’t think that she got the memo that Kimberly asked me on a date.”, Trini looked up from her paper and smiled at Mo, causing her insides to turn to mush, “Thanks for protecting me. I know that Kimberly would really appreciate it.”
Right. Yeah. Trini was Kimberly’s not Mo’s. Right. Mo gulped, “No problem, T. If you ever need my help just let me know.” She smiled at Trini and the tiny girl blushed.
“Will do.”, Trini mumbled and they continued to work on their assignment. The entire time, Mo could feel a furious gaze on the back of her head and nudged Trini with her elbow. Tilting her head towards where Tommy was, Mo hoped that Trini got the message and Trini looked back to see Tommy, with a death grip on her pencil, staring at Mo. If looks could kill then Mo would probably be on fire and being poked with spears. Trini turned back around and the two girls looked at each other before laughing. The teacher’s head snapped up and he glared at the two laughing girls.
“Something funny Ms. Hart?”, he asked crossing his arms over his chest. Mo shook her head, lowering her gaze while casting a side glance at Trini. “How about you Ms.Gomez?” Trini did the same and the two tried to keep their laughs inside as the teacher went back to reading his book. The rest of class consisted of Trini and Mo trying not to laugh when they noticed Tommy glaring at Mo. When the bell rang, the two girls finally burst out laughing and the entire class looked at them like they were crazy. They exited the classroom, wiping the tears from their eyes and clutching their stomachs. Tommy walked out behind them, scoffing as she shouldered her way past Mo, making a point to slam the girl into the lockers. It only made the two laugh harder as they stumbled to their next class. Mo and Trini had most of their classes together, the only one that they didn’t was Biology and that was with Kimberly. When they walked into the room, Olivia was sitting in the back, and empty seat next to her and she motioned for Mo to come sit. Trini moved over to the other side of the room, sitting at the other table in the back. Mo stood in the middle of the room, eyes wide as she looked between the two girls. One she had an actual crush on and the other she had kissed and was having confusing feelings about. Trini looked at her with those big brown eyes and Mo cracked. She walked over to Olivia and leaned to whisper something in her ear.
“Hey, so Trini had a bit of a hard time in our last class, so do you mind if I sit with her?”, Mo asked and Olivia immediately looked at her with a frown.
“Of course I don’t mind. You always sit with me, Mo, and I’m glad that you’re looking out for Trini. She really needs it sometimes. Now, go!”, Olivia pushed her towards where the smaller girl was seated. Mo sat down and smiled at the smaller girl, who nodded in reply. The loud, boisterous voice of Zack Taylor boomed into the classroom and Mo saw Trini roll her eyes.
“I’m just saying that she had enough room on that raft for both of them!”, Zack argued and Mo immediately knew that Zack was talking about the ending scene of Titanic. Honestly, Mo had thought that the movie was actually ABOUT the Titanic, but it was actually some cheesy romantic story. She was excited to learn about the Unsinkable Ship ™ and Kimberly had teased her about how much of a nerd she was. Jason Scott walked in after him and patted a hand on his back.
“Yes, Zack, we know. You have told us about a million time.”, Jason rolled his eyes and made his way to his seat. Billy Cranston follow in after Jason and sat in the seat next to him. The only seat available was the one next to Olivia and Zack slicked his hair back before plopping down next to her.
Right as he was about to say something, Olivia held a hand up, still looking at her paper, “Still gay, Zack.” He blushed, but continued.
“That wasn’t what I was going to ask. I was going to ask when Lemonade Mouth is playing next?”, Zack watched as Olivia turned her head away awkwardly and Mo decided to save her.
“In a couple weeks, Z-man. Don’t worry.”, Mo leaned over and Zack nodded his head. The teacher walked in and demanded silence as the class went on with Mo blushing whenever Trini would even look at her. Their hands touched and Mo quickly took hers away, blushing furiously as Trini gave her a silent apology. Lunch time came and Mo practically bolted out of the classroom, only to be greeted by her sister outside the classroom. Kimberly was leaning up against the wall, arms crossed over her chest and wearing her normal leather jacket, when Mo stopped in front of her.
“Kim.”, Mo deadpanned and her sister smirked at her.
“Mo.”, Kimberly knew that her sister hated her for asking out Trini and was waiting for the right moment to tell her about their heated moment. Trini and Olivia both walked out of the classroom, big smiles on their faces that got even wider when they both saw their dates standing there together. “Hey, Trini.”, Kimberly waved at the girl flirtatiously and Mo saw Trini turn beet red.
“Hey, Kim.”, Trini stumbled over to Kimberly and the taller girl wrapped her arm around Trini’s shoulder.
“Excited for tonight?”, Kimberly asked as she kissed her cheek. Mo knew that she was making a show just to make her jealous, but it wasn’t going to work.
Turning around, Mo went over to Olivia, “Hey, O! Let’s go get some lunch.” The two walked away, leaving Kimberly and Trini alone.
“Yeah I am excited.”, Trini admitted to Kimberly once the others had left. Kimberly smiled at her and they went to lunch.
Kimberly straightened out her jacket in the mirror and was startled when she looked over to her right to see Mo standing in the doorway, floral dress and wedges on. Her sister had a look on her face that she couldn’t recognize, so she rolled her eyes and turned around to face Mo.
“Jealous?”, Kimberly asked with a smirk.
Mo scoffed, “Not a chance. What about you? I’ve got my date with Olivia tonight.”
“And I see you decided to dress for the occasion I see.”, Kimberly poked fun at Mo’s outfit.
“Right back at ya, bitch.”, Mo snarled before the doorbell rang and the two bolted down the stairs. Trini was standing at the door, fiddling with the hem of her shirt when Mo opened the door.
“Mo, hey. Is Kimberly here?”, Trini watched as Mo was just frozen in the doorway until Kimberly forcefully shoved her out of the way.
“Trini. You look….wow.”, Kimberly looked Trini up and down.
The small girl blushed and ducked her head, “It’s just what I normally wear. Now, you look….wow.”
“It’s just what I normally wear.”, Kimberly smiled when Trini blushed even harder. “You ready to go?” Trini nodded and they walked to Kimberly’s car, Kimberly opening the door for her date. They drove to none other than Krispy Kreme. When they walked in, they were greeted by their three teammates, who they really wanted to avoid. Kimberly had forgotten that since the attack, all three of the boys had gotten jobs at Krispy Kreme. Jason to get his car fixed, Billy to repay his mother for the van, and Zack for his mother’s medicine. Walking up to the counter, Kimberly looked up at menu and turned back to ask Trini what she wanted when she noticed that the girl was folding in on herself. “Trini, are you ok?”, Kimberly asked.
“Yeah, I just-I don’t know. I haven’t come out to my parents yet and they have a lot of friends in this town. If they see me here with a girl then-”
Kimberly held a hand up to stop the girl’s rambling, “I understand, Trini, but you can’t be scared of your parents forever. Besides, they don’t have to know that it was a date.” She turned back to the menu and looked at Zack, who was wiggling his eyebrows at them. “Shut up, you dick. Alright I guess that we will get a dozen. Half sprinkled and half glazed.”
“Ah the classics.”, Zack remarked while he punched in stuff into the register. Looking back up at Kimberly, he gave her a cheesy smile, “On the house for my two favorite ladies.”
“No, Zack, you can’t do that.”, Trini stepped forward and Zack just waved her off.
“Of course I can.”
“But your mom’s medicine.”, Trini was so confused. He needed this money and the two of them were totally able to pay for their own donuts.
“She is actually getting better.”, Zack smiled at them and turned to Jason. “Jay, get these ladies a dozen. Half gay and half glazed.” The two girls looked at him confused along with Jason. “What?”
“Half gay?”, Jason questioned.
“Oh whoops! I meant half sprinkled.”, Zack smirked at them and Trini rolled her eyes.
“You did that on purpose.”, Trini crossed her arms and Kimberly couldn’t help but notice how adorable she looked when she got defensive.
“And you are holding up the line, crazy girl. NEXT!”, Zack hollered and Kimberly moved her date over to where Jason was. They grabbed their donuts, avoiding Jason’s knowing look. The two sat down and Trini literally dove for the first donut. Kimberly chuckled and watched her devour at least 7 donuts, 3 glazed and 4 sprinkled.
“I have been trying to master that spin kick, but I keep falling on my ass.”, Kimberly admitted and Trini almost choked on her donut.
“The key is to not do that.”, Trini stated.
Kimberly rolled her eyes, “Yeah, yeah. Make fun of me all you want, but when I do get that spin kick down, you will be the first one that I use it on.” She pointed her fork at Trini, trying to seem threatening, but the girl just laughed.
“I have never known someone who eats donuts with a fork.”
“Hey, the first time we came here together, you ate them with a fork too.”, Kimberly sat back as if she had won the argument.
“That was because I didn’t want you to feel stupid when you realized that donuts are considered a finger food.”, Trini picked up her donut and shoved it in her mouth, proving her point.
“Alright, you win, but do you know what else is a finger food?”, Kimberly leaned forward on the table so that no one else could hear.
Trini sighed and placed her head in her hands, “If this is some sexual joke, please spare me the answer. I think that I have a pretty good idea of what the answer is.” Kimberly smirked and stuffed more of her donut into her mouth. They spent the rest of their date, arguing about random things and talking about training, while making sure that Zack didn’t overhear any of their conversation. Both of them knew that he would be relentlessly teasing them in training for the next couple hundred years, and Trini was prepared. “Crap, my mom is calling me home.”, Trini spoke and her voice showed her disappointment.
“It’s ok, Trini. We will always have time for other dates.”, Kimberly placed her hand on top of Trini’s and the girl smiled at her. They made their way out of the restaurant, ignoring Zack making whipping sounds and went to Kimberly’s car. When they pulled up to Trini’s house, Kimberly could see the resistance in her eyes to leave the car. Kimberly put a hand on her thigh, giving her a smile when she looked over at her, “Do you want me to walk you up?”
Trini swallowed and nodded her head, “That would be nice.” They got out of the car and slowly approached the house. When they reached the stairs, Kimberly noticed how Trini stopped. She didn’t have another second to think as Trini’s lips were suddenly on her’s and they were kissing. It lasted all of about 10 seconds before the porch light flickered on and off. Trini pulled away and smiled at a dazed Kimberly. “If kissing you gets you to look like that much of an idiot, then I’ll have to do it more often.”, Trini pecked her lips one last time before running into the house, hoping to avoid the storm known as June Gomez. Kimberly opened her eyes after a few seconds to realize that she was standing like a lost puppy in front of Trini’s house. Quickly, she bounded over to her car and made her way home. As she was driving, she realized something that made her slam on the brakes. Kimberly was falling in love with Trini. Mo was so going to kill her.
This chapter was so much fun for me to write. The next chapter will be Olivia and Mo's date, with a little interruption. More Trimberly and Molivia to come! I should have the next chapter up soon, don't worry, but I need to focus some more on my Clexa fanfics. Thanks for reading and I love you guys!
Chapter 5: Chapter 5
Mo and Olivia's date. Some jealousy.
It wasn’t that long after Trini and Kimberly left that Olivia showed up. She was wearing a dress that complimented her figure so well that Mo thought she was drooling. Olivia glanced up at her shyly before walking into the house. Mo didn’t know what to say or do so she settled for:
“Woah.” Olivia chuckled at Mo and the girl flushed red.
“I didn’t expect that reaction, but ok.”, Olivia flashed her a smiled before grabbing her hand. “So, we going to Lenny’s?”, Olivia asked while walking to the door. Mo pulled her back and soon the two girls were pressed against each other.
“There is something in the backyard that I think you’ll like.”, Mo said and she leaned forward, kissing the blonde on the nose before leading her into the backyard. When they got there, Olivia gasped. A table was in the center of the yard, lights were strung up everywhere, and their friends were dressed up as waiters.
“How did you get them to agree to this?”, Olivia gazed at all of their friends, surprised to see all of them dressed up.
“She told us that she wanted this date to be special and we offered to be your servers.”, Wen explained as he put his arms behind his back, attempting to look fancy.
Stella quickly stepped in, “For the night at least.” Mo led them over to the table, pulling out a chair for Olivia to sit in. After Olivia took her seat, Mo went over to her’s and Charlie pulled it out for her. When they were both seated, Wen and Charlie went back into the house to prepare the food while Stella took their orders. Mo ordered for both of them and the girl walked away, leaving the two girls alone.
Mo grabbed Olivia’s hand, smiling when the girl looked up at her, “I hope that you enjoy the dinner. Wen and Charlie have spent a lot of time heating it up in the oven.”
Olivia giggled, “So I’m taking it that you actually made the food?”
“Of course. What did you seriously think that those three could actually prepare a meal without setting something on fire?”, Mo felt herself light up when Olivia laughed. Stella walked over, unimpressed with Mo’s comment, and set their drinks down on the table.
“Those two can’t cook shit. I will have you know that I can make a delicious vegetarian meal.”, Stella pointed out, flipping her hair over her shoulder as she was walking away. A few minutes later, Charlie and Wen brought their food out, impressed with the meals that they had “prepared”. Mo and Olivia ate, while talking about the band until Olivia mentioned Kimberly.
“Have you two made up yet?”, Olivia asked while looking up at Mo.
“No. Kim is still pissed, but I’m hoping that Trini or one of the boys can talk some sense into her.”, Mo admitted while playing with a piece of her hair.
“I’m sure that she will forgive you in time.”, Olivia admitted, shoving more food in her mouth.
“I doubt it, O. She was really pissed and I just don’t know if I can fix it.”, Mo sighed as she put her fork down. “But, it’s fine. That’s Kim’s choice and you are mine.”, Mo watched as the blonde blushed.
Olivia got up, rounding the table and plopped herself down in Mo’s lap, “I think that I’m starting to rub off on you.” She wrapped a hand around Mo’s neck, pulling her in for a sweet kiss. It was everything that Mo had imagined it would be….with Trini. When that thought popped in her head, she pulled back a little, but Olivia just chased her lips. They only broke apart when they heard someone wolf whistle and they turned to see Stella, Charlie, and Wen standing behind the glass door, smirks on their faces.
“Go home.”, Mo waved her hand at them, pulling Olivia down for another kiss. It felt right, but Mo wasn’t letting herself feel that way. Trini. That was who she liked. Trini. After a few seconds, she pulled away and Olivia stared down at Mo, dazed expression. “So….that happened.”
“Yeah and I’m hoping that it can happen again.”, Olivia went forward for another kiss, but the sound of a car pulling up. “Is that Kim?”, Olivia got off of Mo’s lap, looking in the driveway. “Mo, that doesn’t look like Kim’s car.”
Hearing that Mo shot up out of her seat, only to see the one car that she wasn’t expecting, her parent’s. “Um, ok so my parents are home. I have no idea why since they are almost never home and I thought that they weren’t coming back until next week.”, Mo was so confused as both of her parents stepped out of the vehicle, bags in hand. Spotting Mo, her mother ran over to her giving her a stiff hug.
“Mohini, I’m so glad that we caught you dear.”, her mother looked at her then her eyes shifted over to Olivia, who was still standing next to her. “Who is this?”, she had forgotten that her mother had no idea who Olivia was, or any of her friends for that matter.
“Mom, this is Olivia. My girlfriend.”, Mo said and she could hear Olivia try not to gasp when she said the word ‘girlfriend’.
“Oh, well, it’s nice to meet you, Olivia.”, her mother held out a hand and the two shook hands, while Mo stood off to the side watching this very awkward interaction. When the handshake finally ended, her mother clasped her hands behind her back, turning into Mrs. Hart: The Business Woman ™ . “I’m guessing that you were on your way out.”, she crossed her arms and Mo looked at her mother with wide eyes.
“Y-yes I was actually. Nice meeting you, Mrs. Hart.”, Olivia was about to walk away when Mo grabbed her hand.
“I’ll walk you out.”, Mo glared at her mother one last time before taking Olivia back into the house. When they reached the door, Mo sighed loudly and Olivia turned to face her. “I am so sorry about her, she’s just….ugh!”
Olivia cupped her face, kissing her, “It’s fine. I’ll see you tomorrow at practice, babe.” The blonde kissed her one last time before walking out, leaving Mo with her own thoughts. Right when she thought that things couldn’t get any worse, Kimberly pulled up, getting out of the car with a frightened look on her face. Seeing Mo, she stopped in her tracks and her eyes got wide.
“M-Mo! I didn’t know that you were home.”, Kimberly seemed nervous about something and Mo could sense it. Suddenly, something caught Kimberly’s eye and she looked over to see their parents car in the driveway. “Are mom and papa home?”
“Yeah and before you say anything, I’m just as surprised as you are.”, Mo rolled her eyes before leading her sister back into the couch. Their parents were already sitting on the couch, looking formal, when they saw their other daughter walk in.
“Kimberly, dear.”, their mother stood up, going in for a hug when she noticed Kimberly’s hair. “What on earth did you do to your hair?!”, she crossed her arms, waiting for an answer while Kimberly rolled her eyes.
“I’ve had my hair like this for months, mother, and we had this conversation the last time that you were home. Speaking of, why are you home so early?”, Kimberly had always had a sass to her, Mo was always the respectful one that did whatever their parents wanted.
“Are you not excited to see us?”, her mother asked in an accusatory tone, raising an eyebrow.
Kimberly mumbled under her breath, “Not particularly.” When Mo heard that, seeing the look on her mother’s face she knew that she heard too, she jumped in, placing a hand on her sister’s shoulder.
“What Kim meant to say was that she is just surprised because we weren’t expecting you for another week.”, Mo sent a look to Kimberly who merely shrugged, not really caring what their parents thought of her.
Their mother went back to sitting next to their father, who was reading a newspaper completely uninterested in the conversation. “Well, how’s Ty doing, Kimberly? We know that Mohini has a “girlfriend”, but you haven’t talked about your boyfriend.” Mo had to put a hand over her mouth to keep from laughing as Kimberly looked like a deer caught in the headlights.
“Ok, you seriously have the worst memory in the world, mother. Ty broke up with me months ago and, since you have forgotten, I punched his tooth out. Then, Mo and I were here, all by ourselves, when that attack happened and the rangers saved us. Oh and why did you do the hand quotes when you were talking about Mo’s girlfriend?”, Kimberly leaned against the doorway, looking at her mother’s shocked face.
“Because it’s ridiculous, Kimberly! I mean, dating girls?! It’s some sort of teen thing that people must do to be cool.”, her mother scoffed, while Kimberly and Mo both looked at each other, anger written all over their faces.
“Whatever, I’m going upstairs.”, Kimberly threw her hands in the air, stomping up the stairs and when Mo went to follow, their father called out to her.
“Mohini, I wish to talk to you for a second.”, he said, lowering his newspaper and looking over at her. Mo nodded her head, making her way over to the chair across from where her father was sitting. She fiddled with her hands as she felt his gaze shift from the paper to her. Placing it on the table, he sat back in the chair, staring at his daughter with a disapproving look. “I do not approve of you throwing away everything that I came to this country for some girl. You are to break up with her. Your sister may be confused, but I hoped that at least you would have had some sense, Mohini.”, he then got out of the chair, making his way upstairs. A tear slipped down Mo’s cheek and she quickly wiped it away when she saw Kimberly, standing at the edge of the stairs, looking at her with pure rage on her face. Kimberly, realizing that she was spotted, rushed over to her sister, wordlessly taking her into her arms as the girl began to sob. Their parents had always been so hard on Mo, mainly because she was the one that they believed in the most, and Kimberly had always gotten away with everything. This was never what Kimberly wanted, she wanted her sister to be happy, but her parents had other ideas. The one thing that Kimberly was going to let Mo do was break up with Olivia,
When Trini walked into the house, June was standing by the door, a frown permanently plastered on her face. Her foot was tapping angrily and her arms were crossed over her chest as she looked her daughter up and down.
“Who was that? Why have I never seen her before? Why were you too kissing? Do her parents know about this?”, June rapidly asked and Trini had to take a second to sort out all the questions.
Taking a deep breath, trying as best she could to control her anger, she responded, “Kimberly Hart, because I don’t want you meeting my friends, we are dating, and I have no idea since her parents are almost never home. Can I go up to my room now?”
“No, Trinity! You ripped a locker door off for that girl!”
“They put it back.”, Trini used Kimberly’s classic line for whenever someone talked about how she punched Ty’s tooth out. “I’m going up to my room. We can talk about this later.”, Trini pushed her way past her mother, going up into her room to drown out the world with the screams of her music.
When Trini walked into school, it felt different, almost happier. She walked into Biology with a smile on her face and watched as Amanda Clark glared at her. It didn’t even phase her today as Kimberly was sitting in the seat next to Trini’s, a not so happy look on her face. Trini sat down, pressing a kiss to Kimberly’s cheek and the brunette looked up at her, smiling when she realized who it was.
“Hey.”, Kimberly greeted her, leaning forward to kiss her on the lips. Trini pulled back, pushing Kim’s shoulder slightly, letting her know that she was uncomfortable with that.
“Hi. What’s on your mind?”, Trini rested her head on her hand, looking at Kimberly with the best puppy eyes that she could muster up.
Kimberly chuckled at the look on the tiny girl’s face, “My parents came home last night in the middle of Olivia and Mo’s date.” When Kimberly saw the worried look on Trini’s face, she pressed a kiss to her nose and watched as the girl pulled her beanie down to hide her blush. “That was my reaction exactly. Anyways, Mo told them about her and Olivia dating. They were not thrilled and told her to break up with her.”
“If she does that then I’ll kill her.”, Trini mumbled and Kimberly wrapped an arm around the girl’s shoulders.
“I will help, but when my papa walked out of the room, I had to pick up the broken pieces of what was once my sister. They have just always been so hard on her because they never thought that I was the smart one. I was the dumb cheerleader who basically lived up to every stereotype in the book, until I cut my hair and met a little latina who does yoga on mountains while listening to death metal.”
“I am not that little.”, Trini huffed, crossing her arms and trying to look fierce, but her girlfriend just thought about how cute she looked.
“Trini, I’m 5’6 and I tower over you. Honey, you’re short.”
Trini swatted Kimberly’s shoulder, “I’m 5’1! That isn’t that short!”
“You’re as tall as my cousin….she’s five years old.”, Kimberly suddenly fell out of her chair and heard Trini’s laughter as she landed on her ass.
“Silence, Ms. Gomez, we have a lot of work to do today.”, the teacher sighed as he walked into the classroom and Trini blushed when everyone looked at her. Kimberly grinned, getting back in her seat as the class began. After a few minutes, she leaned over to whisper something into Trini’s ear.
“Karma is a bitch, isn’t she?”, hearing that, Trini shoved Kimberly’s shoulder again then going back to writing the notes down. When the bell rang, signaling the end of the class, Trini and Kimberly made their way to their next classes. Trini walked into her Latin class, spotting Mo in the back and made her way towards her.
“Hey, Mo.”, Trini gave her a smile and Mo just put her head on the table.
“Kimberly told you, didn’t she?”, Mo asked while bringing her head back up to look at Trini. The tiny girl nodded her head causing Mo to roll her eyes, but Trini knew that she was really just sad. “I’m sorry, but if I don’t break up with Olivia then my papa will be really mad at me. I don’t know what to do, Trini.”, feeling her eyes well up with tears, Mo turned her head away. Trini placed a hand on Mo’s shoulder and when the girl looked up at her with her big brown eyes, Trini just pulled her into a hug. Olivia walked past the classroom only to see her best friend and girlfriend in a more than comfy embrace. Shaking her head, Olivia remembered the way that Mo kissed her the night before, trying to reassure herself that Mo was faithful to her. It wasn’t like Mo was into Trini. Right?
As Olivia finished singing the song and the instruments died out, she turned to her left to see Mo sitting on top of one of the amps with her bass on her lap. She ran a hand through her long locks, staring down at her bass with an adorable frown on her face. Before Olivia could walk over to her girlfriend the sound of clapping echoed through the garage and the blonde turned to see Mrs. Hart standing there clapping her hands.
“That was wonderful. Mohini, you didn’t tell us that you were in a band.”, Mrs. Hart looked at her daughter with an accusatory look on her face and Mo paled.
“You’re never home, so when would I have had the time?”, Mo sassed back, placing her bass down and making her way out of the garage. “Practice is over. Go home, guys.”, Mo mumbled before walking up the stairs. Everyone began packing up in silence as Mrs. Hart was watching them intently. When Stella, Wen, and Charlie had finally packed up everything, Olivia went to go after her when Mrs. Hart stepped in front of her. Olivia stumbled back a little bit while the woman glared at her.
“I would like for you to stay away from my daughter. Break up with her because I know that she won’t do it. You are part of her confusion and I want that confusion out. This band is the only time that you are allowed to see her. Understand?”, Mrs. Hart raised an eyebrow at the blonde, but Olivia couldn’t find it in herself to respond, tears threatening to spill.
Thank god for Stella. “Actually, Mrs. Hart, I don’t believe that you have control over who your daughter does and doesn’t date. If you would rather her date that cheating asshole known as Scott, who by the way knocked up the girl that her cheated on Mo with, then by all means you can go get him for her. You can’t stop Mo from dating Olivia or seeing her at school.”
“You can’t speak to an adult like that!”, Mrs. Hart was appalled with the way that Stella had just spoken to her.
“I just did.”, Stella retorted and she pushed Olivia towards the stairs to get her to go see Mo. Olivia walked up the stairs, hoping that Stella and Mrs. Hart wouldn’t get into it again because that was the single scariest thing that Olivia had ever seen in her life. When she got to Mo’s room, she smiled when she saw the cute blue M on the door, but when she opened the door her smile dropped. Mo was sitting on her bed, tears spilling out of her eyes with Trini by her side. The tiny girl was resting her head on Mo’s shoulder, an arm wrapped around the girl’s waist and the other running her fingers through her hair. She was softly cooing the girl as she cried and when Mo saw Olivia at the door, she straightened up, wiping her tears away. Instead of showing her displeasure for Trini hugging her girlfriend, Olivia opened her arms up for Mo and the girl ran into her embrace. When Olivia looked over Mo’s shoulder, she saw Trini giving her a thumbs up and a smile before she leaped out of the window. Mo pulled out a little bit and gazed up at Olivia, then grabbed her by the shirt into a kiss. It wasn’t like their previous ones and was more heated and rushed.
“Mo.”, Olivia gasped out, pushing on the girl’s shoulder a little bit.
“I-I’m sorry. I just-”, Mo was going to continue when Olivia placed a hand on her cheek.
“It’s fine, you don’t have to explain yourself to me. I do have to go home though. I’ll call you later, babe.”, Olivia pressed one last kiss to her lips before walking down the stairs. As she left the house, she thought about how Mo was hugging Trini and a spike of jealousy ran through her stomach. No, Mo is dating you, not Trini. Besides, Trini is dating Kimberly and has always been interested in Kimberly. Olivia thought to herself. There was no way that Mo was interested in Trini. Right?
So this chapter was a lot of Molivia and not enough of Trimberly. That's ok though because Trimberly is the strongest ship in this one and that is because Mo takes longer to figure out her feelings. As we learned this chapter, the Hart parents have always been hard on Mo instead of Kimberly because they believed that Kimberly was the dumb twin. In actuality, both of them are the smartest fucking people in the world, but that pressure has caused Mo to not be able to deal with feelings as well. Also, I hope you liked that I included pictures at the end of the chapter of both ships. DID YOU GUYS KNOW THAT NAOMI SCOTT WAS IN BRIDGIT MENDLER'S MUSIC VIDEO "HURRICANE"? I legit just found that out and it blew my mind. Anyways, thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys!
Chapter 6: Chapter 6
We find out how Mo copes when things get tough. A party with a not so great twist.
After Trini had climbed out of Mo’s window, leaving the two lovebirds alone, she swung herself over to Kimberly’s window. The brunette was sitting on her bed, with a magazine in her hand and Trini’s headphones on her ears.
“Already stealing my things, Hart?”, Trini smirked as she hopped into the room. Kimberly smiled at the tiny girl, wrapping her arms around her neck to pull Trini into a kiss.
“Well it’s your fault for leaving them in my locker.”, Kimberly mused and chuckled when Trini rolled her eyes.
“We share a locker, princess.”, Trini sat down on Kimberly’s bed, dropping her bag next to Kimberly’s desk. “That excuse would have worked if I hadn’t ripped your locker door off.”, Kimberly sat down next to her girlfriend and Trini looked up at her. “So, Mo’s having a lot more trouble with your parents than what you told me.”
Kimberly sighed, putting her arm around Trini’s shoulders, “I told you that my parents were telling her to break up with Olivia. What I didn’t tell you was Mo’s backstory with our parents.” Trini raised her eyebrow at her girlfriend and the taller girl just took a deep breath. “Ok, so, they have always had more faith in Mo being successful with her life. They definitely went with the stereotype for twins. One of them is dumb while the other is smart. It’s not true, considering Mo and I have the same 4.0 GPA as of right now, don’t ask how.”, Kimberly saw the look on Trini’s face when she mentioned her GPA. It was higher than Trini’s which was something that surprised the girl, but she motioned for Kimberly to continue. “Papa had decided that Mo was going to be his perfect Indian daughter. While Mo got all the pressure and support from our parents, I was left out in the dust. No matter what I did, my parents were never impressed. We both have our own crosses to bare when it comes to our parents.”
“I think that you both need to talk about this and what you are going to do. Mo needs some help with this and you’re all that she has, Kim.”, Trini pressed a kiss to Kimberly’s cheek. “Now, let’s study for a little while and then you go talk to your sister.”, the tiny girl laid back on the bed, grabbing Kimberly’s textbook. Kimberly laid down next to her, but a question popped in her head, she propped herself up on her elbow.
“Hey, why didn’t you want me to kiss you in class?”, Kimberly watched as the girl tensed up.
“I’m not much for that type of stuff in public. Especially since I’m not out.”, Trini fiddled nervously with her hands.
Kimberly placed her hands on top of Trini’s, smiling when the girl glanced up at her, “It’s ok, Trini. I would like to hold your hand in the hallways though. Just so that all the girls know that you are spoken for.” Trini blushed and just wrapped her arms around Kimberly’s shoulders, pulling the taller girl into a soft kiss. The sound of Kimberly’s door opening caused the two to quickly jump apart, but sigh in relief when they saw Mo standing there, eyes red and puffy from crying.
“I’ll leave you guys to talk.”, Trini hopped off the bed, but as she was about to jump out the window, she turned around and pulled Kimberly by her shirt into a kiss. “See ya later, babe.”, Trini smirked when Kimberly seemed dazed and the tiny girl jumped out of the window.
“You guys seem happy.”, Mo snarled at her sister. Kimberly rolled her eyes, turning to face Mo with a dopey smile on her face.
“Look, I’m sorry that I asked her out, but I….ok I have something that I need to tell you and I really need you not to freak out.”, Kimberly stood up so that she could look at her sister properly.
Mo threw her hands in the air, “Oh what is it now? Are you in love with her or something?” Kimberly’s silence was her answer. “No fucking way. It’s literally been a couple weeks, Kimberly!”
“That’s how long it’s been for you and Olivia, don’t tell me that you have no feelings for her.”, Kimberly crossed her arms, looking Mo up and down. Mo clenched her jaw tightly, grinding her teeth together to keep from slapping Kimberly across the face.
“I don’t know what to feel anymore.”, Mo spat out before walking out of the room. Kimberly sighed, running her hands through her hair as she tried to make sense of everything that was going wrong in her life. At least she had Trini. For now.
After Mo had stormed off, she went downstairs to go to her normal coping method: booze. Thankfully, her parents weren’t home, so the alcohol was free for all. She plopped down on the couch, turning on the TV and took her first sip of her favorite, whiskey. The bottle was about halfway empty when it was snatched out of her hands and she looked up to see Trini looking at her with a frown.
“Why the hell are you drinking Mo?”,Trini was pissed and Mo knew. Mo’s silence was all that Trini needed and she pulled out her phone, texting Kimberly.
“How did you get here so fast?”, Mo slurred
Trini rolled her eyes and said sarcastically, “I’m a superhero.”
“What?!” , Kimberly yelled from upstairs, obviously having seen the text. Her door flew open and she stomped down the stairs to see if what Trini was telling her was true. Sure enough, Mo was sitting on the couch looking drunk as shit while Trini held a bottle of whiskey. “Mo, why are you drinking?!”, Kimberly was practically screaming at her sister. She couldn’t believe that she was drinking.
Mo scoffed before standing up, her head immediately spinning, “Woah.” The girl stumbled and fell, but Trini caught her before she could hit the ground.
“Let’s get her to bed.”, Trini looked up at her girlfriend who nodded sadly. Hooking one of Mo’s arms around her shoulders, the two walked upstairs with Mo mumbling under her breath. They put her down on the bed, Trini taking off her shoes while Kimberly looked for some more comfortable clothes. Kimberly pulled out some sweatpants and an old shirt before pushing Trini out of the room. While Kimberly knew that Mo wouldn’t mind Trini seeing her naked, she wasn’t going to allow that. After she changed her, she left her sister to sleep it off.
Kimberly walked out of her sister’s room, stopping when she saw Trini sitting outside the door. The taller girl smiled and sat down next to Trini, “She should be fine. I think that she’s just going through a hard time, you know, with our parents trying to force her to break up with Olivia.”
“Maybe we should call Olivia over here. She might be able to help.”, Trini hummed, but Kimberly just shook her head.
“I don’t think that she can do anything right now, but I know that when Mo wakes up she is gonna need someone.”, Kimberly leaned her head on Trini’s shoulder, tired of having to deal with her sister’s problems. “Hey, so Jason told me about this party that’s happening at Wen’s. Do you want to go?”
“Parties aren’t really my scene.”, Trini looked down at her hands in her lap.
“It’s ok. I’ll be with you the whole time.”, Kimberly placed her hands over Trini’s, smiling when the girl looked up at her.
“Fine.”, Trini rolled her eyes and Kimberly squealed with joy. “Yeah, yeah. As long as you’re with me the whole time, I’m ok with it.” What they didn’t know was that Mo had asked Olivia to that party earlier that day, and they were going.
Trini and Kimberly walked into Wen’s house, hand in hand, while people danced around them. It was then that Stella walked up to them, a beer in her hand and Charlie right next to her. Giving each of them a hug, she went to talking to Kimberly while Trini tasked herself with trying to be able to hear her own thoughts. She had never taken Wen for a guy that liked to party, but she caught the image of him dancing across the room. A hand touched her shoulder and she turned around to see Olivia standing there with Mo by her side.
“Hey, T!”, Olivia greeted and pulled the smaller girl into a hug, after a split second Trini relaxed into her friend and pulled back.
“Sup, O.”, Trini gave her a faint smile, trying to hide how anxious she was with all of the people around her. Kimberly was still having a very interesting conversation with Stella and she watched her girlfriend until she felt a hand in hers. She looked down at the hand then up at the person and realized that it was Mo.
“You ok, Trini?”, it was kind of eerie how comforting it was that Mo was holding her hand. Her body seemed to think that it was Kimberly and relaxed at the touch, until Kimberly wrapped an arm around her shoulder. Relaxing into her girlfriend’s embrace, Trini felt Mo’s hand let go of her’s and she looked at the taller girl.
“I’m fine. Thanks, Mo.”, Trini gave her a small smile before Mo walked away, Olivia by her side.
“You want to get a drink?”, Kimberly whispered into her ear and Trini nodded. As they walked through the crowd, Trini used her hair to hide her face from everyone. Finally they made it to the alcohol table and Kimberly made the two of them some drinks, turning around to see Trini nervously glancing around. Bringing her to this party was proving to be a bad idea as Trini was becoming quieter and quieter by the minute. Trini was a quiet person generally, but when she stopped talking all together, that meant that something was wrong. Walking over to her, Kimberly handed her girlfriend the drink, “Are you sure that you’re ok?”
Trini just waved her hand, “Yeah. I’m ok.” The two smiled at each other and Kimberly sighed, putting her drink down on the counter.
Just as she was about to say something, a drunk Zack walked up to them, “Kimmy! Crazy girl! Come play spin the bottle, then you can make out all you want.” He stumbled away waving a hand for them to follow and the two just looked at each other before shrugging and walking after him. They followed him to a circle of people, none of them were known by either girl except for Mo and Olivia. Sitting down, Kimberly felt Trini scoot a little closer to her, clearly uncomfortable with being here. Suddenly, Kimberly saw a familiar blonde walk over and sit down, Kimberly’s breath caught in her throat when she saw who it was: Amanda Clark. She gave Kimberly a devilish smile before proceeding to start the game.
“Alright, we spin the bottle about whoever it lands on is the person that you have to kiss in the closet for 7 minutes.”, Amanda raised an eyebrow at Kimberly, challenging her to do something, but Kimberly didn’t know what.
“So this is seven minutes in heaven?”, Olivia spoke up, but leaned into Mo when everyone looked at her.
“Yep. Mo, how about you go first?”, Amanda handed the bottle over to the brunette and she took is questioningly.
“Um, ok?”, Mo placed it on the floor, spinning it while Amanda got up walking around the circle and stopping behind Trini. The bottle stopped spinning and Kimberly held her breath to see who it was pointing to. When she heard people gasped, she followed their line of sight to see that the bottle was pointing to Trini.
“Kimmy’s girlfriend. Scandal.”, Amanda laughed at the chaos that was about to happen. “Alright, in the closet you two.”, Amanda tried to urge them, but both of them were glued to the spot.
“N-no! I’m not kissing my sister’s girlfriend.”, Mo finally exclaimed, Trini nodding along with her.
Amanda sighed, “I figured. Boys, grab them.” Three burly football players walked over, one of them throwing Trini over his shoulder while the other two grabbed Mo. Olivia and Kimberly tried to get them to drop their girlfriends, but they were being held back by some other football players. The two girls were thrown into the closet and the door shut, being locked in the process. They stood there for a solid minute before Mo finally spoke up.
“We don’t have to do anything, Trini. It’s just a stupid game.”, even though Mo really wanted to kiss Trini, she knew that the girl had feelings for her sister and just couldn’t do that to her.
Trini shrugged, “Please, it will be just like kissing Kim.”
“If you’re sure.”, Mo moved forward, placing a hand on Trini’s cheek before softly connecting their lips. After a second, Mo pressed her lips more firmly to Trini’s and the other girl responded. There weren’t any fireworks like Mo was expecting, but for some reason it felt right. She couldn’t put her finger on it, but there was something about kissing Trini that lit a spark inside of Mo even though she didn’t want it to be there. Trini pushed Mo a little bit until her back hit the door. Mo opened her mouth, letting Trini’s tongue in as they continued to kiss. Breaking apart for air, they looked at each other before Mo reconnected their mouths in a rushed, heated kiss. The unlocking of the door broke the two apart and they straightened themselves out before the door opened to reveal Olivia and Kimberly, both of them with shocked expressions on their faces.
Amanda’s head popped out from the side and she smiled, “Based on Mo’s lipstick being smudged, I’m going to guess that it was a pretty great make out session.” Kimberly didn’t say anything, she only grabbed Trini and stomped her way out of the party. Olivia just looked at Mo, disappointed in her, but when she saw how conflicted Mo looked she just pulled the girl into her arms. This whole thing had just made Mo more confused than before and she didn’t know who she was going to choose.
Kimberly practically shoved Trini into her car, not pleased at all with the fact that she just made out with her sister. Of course she knew that Mo still had feelings for Trini and that just made her even more pissed off. Why was she pissed off? Because, Trini was her girlfriend and she was allowed to be jealous. Trini was hers and she wasn’t about to let any other girl have her. Hopping into the driver’s seat, she ignored Trini trying to get her attention, speeding off towards her house.
“Kim! Kimberly! Oh my god, you just ran a fucking stop sign! Are you trying to get a ticket?! Kimberly Ann Hart, you better acknowledge me and soon!”, Trini folded her arms over her chest, clearly not impressed with what Kimberly was doing right now. Kimberly just kept driving, not caring if Trini was mad at her because she was planning to get back at the universe for screwing her over. They pulled up to Kimberly’s house, the girl jumping out of the car before Trini could say anything. She immediately went after Kimberly, yelling at her to stop and talk to her, but she didn’t listen. Instead she just opened the front door, walking into her house and up to her room, not closing the front door. Trini took that as Kimberly telling her to come inside, so she obliged, walking quietly into the house, shutting the door behind her. Walking up to Kimberly’s room, she felt her heart jump to her throat as she thought about her kiss with Mo. It was slow and passionate, but also heated and needy. She reached Kimberly’s room, slowly pushing open the door only to have her mouth drop to the floor. Kimberly was lying on her bed, only in lingerie, with a smirk on her face. Her muscles gleamed in the dim lighting of the room, causing Trini’s mouth to water when the girl stood up and walked towards her. Kimberly pulled her by her jacket into the room, closing the door behind her and then slamming the smaller girl into the door, smirk still in place.
“Let’s have some fun.”, Kimberly whispered seductively, capturing Trini’s lips in her own. When Trini was able to come back to reality, she pushed Kimberly back until the backs of her knees hit the edge of the bed. A sudden dominance overcame the smaller girl as she shoved Kimberly back onto the bed, stripping her clothes off.
“I’m down.”, Trini looked at Kimberly’s eyes that had turned dark with lust before climbing on top of her. For the moment, whatever problems that they were having were washed away as they busied themselves with each other.
I'm so sorry that I haven't updated in a little while. I got writer's block and then a bunch of stuff happened, so I have just been busy.

Chapter 7: Chapter 7
Mo and Trini talk. Olivia and Kimberly bond a little bit.
After the incident in the closet, Olivia had taken Mo to her house, not mentioning what happened the entire way home. Olivia wasn’t mad with Mo, she was just confused as to why Mo would kiss Trini. When they pulled up to Olivia’s house she looked over to see that Mo was staring aimlessly out the window of her car, not even registering that they had stopped. Sighing, Olivia got out of the car and went over to Mo’s side, opening the door. Mo just silently grabbed her purse and exited the car, not bothering to ask why they were at Olivia’s house. They just walked up the stairs in silence, both of them not being able to come up with any words that they wanted to say. She watched as Mo walked into her guest room, shutting the door and leaving Olivia alone in the hallway. When Olivia finally made it to her own room, she was able to think about what happened. Trini kissed Mo. Mo kissed Trini. Why would her best friend do that to her? Why would her girlfriend do that to her? Shaking her head, Olivia just climbed into her bed, trying not to think about how fucked up this situation was.
When she woke up, she felt someone poking her in the face, so she opened her eyes to see Mo standing over her with a plate of food.
“Morning.”, Mo sat down on the edge of her bed, handing her the plate when she had sat up against the headboard.
Olivia didn’t realized that she hadn’t responded until Mo averted her gaze to the floor, “Oh, um, hi.”
“I figured that I would bring you breakfast before I left.”, Mo smiled at her, but Olivia could tell that it wasn’t a true smile.
“You have to leave?”, Olivia could hear her voice crack when she said that and watched as Mo winced when it did.
“Yeah. I have to change my clothes and get ready for school.”, Mo went to stand up when Olivia grabbed her wrist.
“But you have no way to get home. You’ll have to walk and your house is a few miles away.”, Olivia gave her a frown.
“I asked Charlie to pick me up since he was on his way to school. In fact, he’s waiting outside right now.”, Mo pressed a kiss to Olivia’s lips before walking out of the room, without even so much as a goodbye. Olivia sighed, leaning her head back and looking up at the ceiling. This relationship was a lot more complicated than she had expected.
Charlie dropped Mo off at her house and drove off to school, leaving Mo to just stand there and stare at Kimberly car in the driveway. She definitely felt bad for kissing her sister’s girlfriend, but at the same time, Trini was Mo’s crush before she was Kimberly’s. Sighing, Mo walked up to the front door, getting ready to open it when it opened to reveal Trini, hair going every which way and shirt on inside out.
“Sorry.”, Trini mumbled with a smile before walking past Mo and down the street. Mo was too awestruck to respond as the tiny girl got farther and farther away from her house. Deciding that she should probably go inside, Mo reluctantly stepped into the house, shutting the door behind her and she made her way up the stairs. As she was walking to her own room, she passed by Kimberly’s only to see her sister putting her bra on. She didn’t need her smarts to know what happened last night.
Kimberly turned around and jumped when she saw Mo, “Mo! For fuck’s sake wear a bell will you?”
“Let me guess: you and Trini had sex last night right?”, Mo leaned up against the doorframe, feeling jealous as she watched her sister blush at the question.
“None of your business, Mo. Besides, we have to be at school in 20 minutes so get dressed in something that doesn’t smell like sweat and shame.”, Kimberly pushed her sister out of the doorway and slammed the door in her face. Huffing, Mo walked down to her own room, quickly getting dressed before meeting Kimberly outside by her car. “Ready?”, Kimberly asked as she stepped forward, bag on her shoulder.
“What do you think?”, Mo snarled at her sister, going around to the passenger side and getting in without another word. The car ride to school was as awkward as Mo had thought it would be. When Kimberly parked the car, Mo leaped out and made her way into the school, not caring that Kimberly was calling after her. Reaching her locker, she opened it up only to see Trini’s reflection from down the hallway. They needed to talk about what happened, so Mo slammed her locker shut and made her way over to where Trini was standing, Zack right next to her.
He noticed that Mo was coming over and perked up, “Oh, hey--” Mo grabbed Trini’s elbow, forcing her to walk with her to the bathroom. “Mo.”, Zack spoke to himself as he watched the girls walk away. In the bathroom, Mo threw Trini into the room, locking the door behind her and turned to the smaller girl.
“We need to talk.”, Mo spoke to the girl, who was still looking at her with wide eyes.
“I know, but you didn’t have to literally kidnap me in the middle of the hallway to do it.”, Trini exclaimed, crossing her arms over her chest.
Mo began pacing, “What happened at the party, it shouldn’t have happened. I mean, we’re both in relationships and we are both happy. Why did we do that? Why?”
“Ok, Mo, you need to take a second and breathe. What happened, happened, and we can’t do anything about it. We just need to move on. Kim has forgiven me and I’m sure that Olivia has forgiven you. Let’s just move on.”, Trini nodded at Mo, who nodded back at her.
“I just have a quick question.”, Mo watched as Trini nodded for her to continue. “Did the kiss mean anything to you?”
“No.”, Trini straightened her back, looking at Mo with the most honest expression that she could muster up.
Mo felt like she had just been kicked in the gut. Her heart sank to her stomach and she gave Trini a reassuring smile, “Me neither. I just wanted to make sure that we were on the same page.” Trini smiles at her once again before walking past her, unlocking the door, and walking back into the hallway. As she was on her way to Biology, Trini remembers that she forgot her textbook and goes back to her locker. Her back turned, she feels someone tap her shoulder and turns around to see Olivia standing there, something in her eyes that Trini did not recognize.
“Sorry.”, Olivia muttered under her breath before she brought her hand back, slapping Trini across the face. The smaller girl raised a hand to her cheek, stumbling over her words as she looked back at Olivia, tears gathering in her eyes. Olivia only shook her head before running past everyone that had stopped around them. Arms wrapped around Trini and she looked up to see Kimberly, standing there with a shocked look on her face. Jason, Billy, and Zack all came flying through the crowd, the ranger connection sending Trini’s emotions through them. Sadness and shock were the only two things that Trini could feel. Soon, the students filed away, leaving the rangers to try and make Trini feel a little better. She had been so focused on getting Kimberly to forgive her that she had completely forgotten that she kissed her best friend’s girlfriend. What she didn’t see was Mo standing at the other end of the hallway, tears rolling down her cheeks as she realized who she chose.
Kimberly hated the fact that they had training today, even though Jason had given them the day off yesterday when they went to the party. Worst party ever, by the way. Avoiding another fist from a putty, Kimberly rolls over to the other side of the pit, jumping back on her feet and smashing the putty to pieces. Clapping sounded through the pit and Kimberly just bowed at her teammates, watching as her girlfriend laughed at her ridiculousness. Trini had Kimberly’s phone in her hand when it started ringing, and the smaller girl held it out to her.
“Kim, it looks like Mo is calling.”, Trini said as Kimberly grabbed the phone from her hands. Rolling her eyes, Kimberly answers the call, but doesn’t speak into the phone until she walks into the ship. When she makes it to a hallway, she stops, bringing the phone up to her ear.
“What do you want, Mo?”, Kimberly sassed to her sister. She heard a scoff and what sounded like someone gulping something down before Mo finally responded.
“What do I want? That’s the million dollar question.”
“Mo, I don’t have time for this, so whatever it is just say it so that I can go back to hanging out with my friends.”
“Why do you always get everything? You got to be the head cheerleader, the top bitch, and you got my crush.”
“And you’re a bitch. You know, I think that you should walk in my shoes and see what my life is like.”
“I know that your life isn’t sunshine and rainbows, neither is mine.”, Kimberly could hear her sister rolling her eyes.
“That’s just because we’re twins. I wish I had a better twin, one that wouldn’t ask out my crush in order to get back at me for stealing her car.”
“So what? I asked Trini out to get back at you, you asked Olivia out to get back at me. At least I actually fell for the one that I asked out.”
“Whatever, Kim. I’m going to go to band practice.”
Kimberly heard Mo stumbling around and immediately yelled into the phone, “Mohini Hart, you sit your ass back down! I’m going to call Olivia to go over to the house and you better let her in, do you understand?”
A hiccup, “Yes, mom. Bye.” Before Kimberly could say another word, Mo hung up on her, leaving Kimberly to groan at her phone. She quickly texted Olivia to go over and make sure that Mo was ok. When she turned around, she saw a very angry Zack standing a few feet away from her. No words were said as he walked over to her, punching her so hard that she fell back onto the floor.
“I don’t want to hear any of your excuses.”, Zack seethed at the girl on the floor. “How dare you! Out of all the shit that you have done, this takes the cake.”
Kimberly watched him run his hands through his hair, “Zack--”
“NO!”, Zack violently interrupted. “You are going to hear me out. I never thought that you would be so cruel as to use someone else’s feelings in your game of ‘let’s get back at Mo’. Do you even know how long Trini has been pining over you? You don’t do you?”, Zack scowled when Kimberly avoided his angry gaze. “She has literally been in love with you since the first day of school and you smiled at her in Biology. Trini tells me everything about you and it’s so clear that she loves you, but you obviously don’t love her. If you did, then you wouldn’t have used her like this. Kim, you have done a lot of things and Trini has given you the benefit of the doubt each time. Why would you do this to her? Do you know how upset she is going to be when she finds out?”
“You can’t tell her!”, Kimberly immediately jumped in.
“Oh and why not?”, Zack crossed his arms over his chest, not backing down.
“Because, I do love her.”, Kimberly admitted and Zack’s mask of anger slipped for a second. “At first, it was just a ploy to get back at Mo, but after we dated for a little while I realized that I did have feelings for her. When we kissed, I just knew.”
Zack uncrossed his arms, but didn’t show Kimberly an ounce of sympathy, “All that I can say is fix it or I will. Trini really loves you and after all the shit that has happened to her in her life, she really doesn’t need this.” Kimberly nods, glad to see that Zack isn’t as mad anymore, but her heart stops when he holds up a finger, “But, you need to tell her. One thing that Trini hates, more than being called cute, is when people lie to her.”
“I will.”, Kimberly nodded and Zack turned to walk away when he stopped.
“I heard you say that Mo asked Olivia out to get back at you. My opinion of you two has seriously changed.”, Zack walked away, leaving Kimberly with her own thoughts. Kimberly sat on the floor, leaning back up against the wall and thought about everything. None of this was ok. She had asked out Trini to get back at her sister who in turn asked out Olivia to get back at her. Then, Kimberly fell in love with Trini and Mo probably fell in love with Olivia. She didn’t even hear the footsteps approaching her until Trini’s face came into view and Kimberly jumped.
“Hey. You need to get back to training, Jason wants to try out this new putty that Alpha made up.”, Trini had excitement pouring out of her voice.
Kimberly smiled at her, “I’ll be back in a second, just have to make sure that Olivia checks on Mo.” At that moments her phone rang and Olivia’s name popped up on the screen.
Hey, so Mo is drunk as shit and was stumbling around the house when I got there. I put her to bed, so she is safe and sound. I will probably stay until she wakes up, so have fun with Trini! Thanks for texting me about Mo!
“Alright, let’s go.”, Kimberly brushed her jeans off as she stood up and linked her hand with Trini’s. They walked hand in hand down to the pit, Kimberly avoiding Zack’s eyes as they entered and the only thought running through her head was: I am so dead.
Olivia was sitting on the Hart’s couch when she heard the front door open, thinking that it was Kim, she stood up only to be met with the faces of Mr. and Mrs. Hart. She gulped as they eyed her warily, then looked around for Mo.
“Olivia, where’s Mohini?”, Mrs. Hart asked, walking into the kitchen before coming back to where Olivia was standing. The blonde couldn’t seem to form words as the woman before her glared, “What? Cat got your tongue?”
“N-no.”, Olivia managed to get out, cursing herself when she stuttered.
“Is Mohini upstairs?”, Mrs. Hart pointed up the stairs and Olivia nodded, not expecting for the woman’s face to darken. “I’m only going to say this once: stay away from my daughter. She should never have gotten involved with the likes of you. If you don’t stay away from her, then I will make sure to make your life with your grandmother a living hell, do you understand?”
“Yes, ma’am.”, Olivia nods furiously, not knowing what else to do when your girlfriend’s parent threatens you. Mr. Hart just stood off to the side, watching them with no emotion on his face.
“Good. Now leave this house and don’t come back unless it’s for your little band practice.”, Mrs. Hart opened the door and Olivia grabbed her purse, practically sprinting out of the home. When she made it to her car, she picked up the phone and called the first person that she could think of.
“Hey, Kim. Can we talk?”
So next chapter we will see a lot of drama. From this point forward, shit is going downhill. If you have any suggestions as to what you think should happen or the way that Olivia and Trini find out, hit me up and I will totally listen. Thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys!
Chapter 8: Chapter 8
Trini and Olivia talk. Something is wrong with Mo.
It wasn’t like Trini was jealous when Olivia called asking Kimberly to talk. No, of course not. Jealousy wasn’t something that Trini was capable of feeling. She watched as her girlfriend sprinted out of the pit, not even caring that her girlfriend was still sitting on one of the boulders feeling a little left out. A few seconds later, Zack sat down next to her, a serious expression on his face.
“How are you and Kim doing?”, Zack bumped her shoulder and raised an eyebrow when she looked at him.
“Why are you asking?”, Trini was confused as to why Zack would ask her this.
“I mean, you kissed Mo, wasn’t Kim at least a little bit angry?”, Zack was definitely pushing for details.
Trini blushed and lowered her head in embarrassment, “She was mad. At first.”
“What do you mean at….”, Zack realized what Trini meant and started smirking at her. “You guys had sex!” Trini slapped a hand over his mouth when Jason and Billy whipped their heads over to the two.
“You and Kim had sex?”, Billy questioned and Trini groaned while Zack started laughing, Jason trying to lead Billy out of the room. When they were gone, Trini turned to the laughing boy, punching him in the shoulder so hard that he fell off of the boulder.
“You are an ass.”, Trini directed at him which only made him laugh harder. “I’ll see you later, Zack.”
“Bye, crazy girl.”, Zack gasped out as he was finally able to catch her breath. Trini walked out of the pit, jumping up into the water and landing on the cliff. Instead of going home, Trini decided that she felt like she needed a little bit of calming yoga and death metal. She went to her normal spot, setting down her bag before sliding her headphones onto her head. The blaring drums, guitars, and screams mixed together put Trini at ease while she did her normal yoga poses. What Trini didn’t know was that somebody was watching her from the distance, and it wasn’t Zack this time. Trini just relaxed and when she finally finished, she saw that she had received a text from Kimberly telling her to go and talk to Olivia when she got the chance. Gathering up her things, Trini made her way over to Olivia’s house, sneaking up through the window like she normally did. Olivia was sitting on her bed, tearings streaming down her cheeks as she stared at her phone. As Trini got closer, she saw that it was a photo of her and Mo, both of them sitting on a bench and Mo kissing Olivia’s cheek.
“Olivia.”, Trini whispered, trying not to startle the girl, but she jumped anyways.
Olivia wiped her tears and gave Trini a sad smile, “Hey, T. Look, I’m really sorry about slapping you at school.”
“It’s fine. I kind of deserved it for kissing your girl.”, Trini sat down next to Olivia. “What’s wrong?”
“Mo’s mom told me that I can’t see Mo anymore. She said that the only time that I can see her is band practice, but that I am supposed to ignore her any other time of the day.”, Olivia barely made it through that without crying. Just thinking about how hurt Mo will be when Olivia ignores her is something that she just can’t take.
“What?”, Trini was shocked by this. She wrapped her arms around Olivia, comforting her friend while she thought about how Mrs. Hart could do that. “Have you told Mo about this?”
“What do you think? We haven’t really talked since the incident.”, Olivia put her head on Trini’s shoulder.
“We have to do something about this.”, Trini exclaimed, but Olivia just shook her head.
“Kim has it covered. She said that Mo really doesn’t need the stress, so I shouldn’t tell her.”, Olivia sniffed.
“I love Kim, but I feel like you should tell Mo.”, Trini said, watching as Olivia shook her head.
“I understand where Kim is coming from. Mo has a lot on her mind and it wouldn’t be right to just dump this on her too. I trust Kim.”
Trini sighed, running a hand through her hair, “I trust her too. Mo has a right to know.”
“Trini, I need you to promise me not to tell Mo.”, Olivia begged her, forcing the smaller girl to look at her.
“Promise me!”, Olivia stared at Trini, showing that she wasn’t backing down until Trini promised.
“Fine. I promise I won’t tell Mo.”, Trini rolled her eyes and Olivia wrapped her in the tightest hug imaginable.
“Thank you.”, Olivia whispered through her hair.
“Can’t. Breathe.”, Trini gasped out. Even with her ranger strength, Olivia was able to squeeze her so hard that it felt like her ribs were slowly breaking.
“Sorry.”, Olivia smiled shyly at her before the two decided to just watch a movie until Trini’s mom called. The two were glad that they were best friends again because they didn’t know how much they would need each other eventually.
This was quite possibly the worst day in the world for Mo. Kimberly had woken her up so early that it was still dark outside, claiming that she had to get to school really early to study with Trini for the biology test. At first, Mo had thought nothing of it, just thinking that Kimberly was being ridiculous, so she took her time getting ready. That was until she realized that Kimberly had left to go to school without her, only leaving a note saying that she could catch a ride from Jason. Mo called Jason and he agreed to give her a ride, but it wouldn’t be for another hour or so. He finally came to pick her up when a dull ache resonated in her chest. It’s nothing, Mo thought to herself, hopping into the truck and greeting the boy. When they arrived at school, Mo went searching for Olivia, walking through the halls searching for her familiar blonde head. At the end of the hallway, she caught sight of Stella and Wen talking to Olivia and she jogged over.
Stopping next to her girlfriend, she gave her a kiss on the cheek, “Hey, babe.” Mo’s smile quickly dropped when she realized that Olivia wasn’t looking at her, in fact, she had a frown on her face.
“I have to go.”, she mumbled before she was walking down the hallway without another word.
“Woah, trouble in paradise?”, Stella smirked jokingly, but when she noticed Mo’s sad expression, she quickly went to comfort her friend. “Hey, Mo, I’m sure it’s nothing. She is probably just stressed about the bio test. Nothing to worry about.”
“Yeah except we haven’t talked since the party.”, Mo informed them and she heard Wen snort.
“Oh yeah, that party was great. Hot girls and spin the bottle. Yes please.”, Wen was confused when Stella shot him a glare. “Wait, was that the party where you kissed Trini?”, the two girls gave him a look that made him nod his head. “I’ll take that as a yes.”
The pain shot through Mo’s chest again and she winced slightly. Stella saw this and took a step forward, “Are you ok, Mo?”
“What? I’m fine. I have to go to english, so I’ll see you guys later.”, Mo walked down the hallway and rushed into the girl’s bathroom. Placing a hand on her chest, she tried to calm her heart down, hoping that it would stop the pain. “I’m ok. I’m ok.”, Mo reassures herself as she tries to ease the pain. When she finally had it under control, Mo walked down to her english classroom and took her seat in between Charlie and Zack. Today was the day that the teacher would be handing back their tests from last week and Mo was confident in her’s. That was until the test actually landed on her desk and she saw that she had gotten a B. Fuck. Her father was going to kill her. Multiple times throughout her life her father had stressed that getting anything less than an A is unacceptable. She could just see the disapproving look on his face right now and a flash of pain sparked through her chest, causing her to lean forward and press a hand to her chest.
“Woah, Mo.”, Zack immediately rushed forward, but Mo swatted him away.
“I’m fine, it’s just cramps.”, she reassured Zack and turned to Charlie to see that he was looking at her with the same concern. “Really, guys.”, Mo tried again and the two finally turned away, throwing worried glances at Mo for the rest of the class. The rest of the school day went as it normally did, Olivia was still ignoring Mo and everytime she would think about it, the feeling of stress ran through her because she didn’t know what was going on. That would cause the pain in her chest to get worse and she barely made it to Kim’s car without gasping in pain at least once. She leaned her back up against the door, hand clutching at her chest through her jacket when Kim walked up.
“Mo, are you alright?”, her sister questioned and Mo straightened up, glaring at her.
“Of course. Let’s go, I don’t want to be late for practice, Kimmy.”, Mo slammed the passenger door shut when she got into the car, leaving Kimberly to throw her hands up in frustration. Since the Hart parents were home, they had moved band practice to Stella’s house.
Practice went pretty smoothly, besides the fact that the pain in Mo’s chest was getting worse and worse by the minute. It was getting harder for her to remember what cords she was supposed to play and when she was supposed to come in. Her vision started to blur, but she shook it off, pushing through until Stella called a timeout.
“Ok, we are really off today. Mo,”, when Stella said her name Mo whipped her head in the girl’s direction, “You had the bass line down last practice. What’s the problem now?”
“Nothing. I just have a lot on my mind, ok?”, Mo looked down at her bass while the rest stared at her.
“Have you been practicing it?”, Wen asked her from behind the keyboard.
“Of course I have!”, Mo was getting more fed up by the second.
“It doesn’t seem like you have.”, Stella placed her hands on her hips, raising an eyebrow at Mo. Another wave a pain washed through Mo and she closes her eyes together tightly.
“Ok, you know what? I’m done.”, Mo took her bass off, placing it in her case while the other tried getting her to stop, Olivia the only one who just stood there. As Mo was walking to the door, the blonde finally stepped forward.
“Mo.”, she called gently and the brunette stopped at the middle of the stairs, turning back to look at her girlfriend(?). “Don’t go.”
“Oh, so now you can talk to me! Unbelievable!”, Mo rushed up the stairs as the pain got sharper. She finally got outside and could see black dots filling her vision as it got harder to breathe. Her meds. Her house was only a few blocks away, so Mo hightailed it back home. When she got there, she saw Kimberly’s car in the driveway and the pain got more intense. Leaning against her sister’s car, Mo mustered up enough strength to walk to the door, sweat dripping down her forehead as she burst into the house.
“K-Kim.”, Mo called out weakly as her vision started spinning. It felt like her chest was closing and breathing was becoming harder and harder as her heart sped up. The pain was becoming too much as she stumbled into the kitchen to see Kimberly standing there, making some food and when she turned around, the plate crashing to the floor when she saw the state that Mo was in. Her face was pale and sweat was dripping off of her. Black dots were filling her vision as she fell forward, Kimberly catching her before she hit the floor.
“No no no no no.”, Kimberly muttered under her breath as she brushed some of Mo’s long hair out of her face. “Mo, talk to me.”, Kimberly was trying to keep her sister from falling asleep, but she couldn’t stay calm when Mo was literally gasping for air. The pain was too much and Mo finally screamed out, hand clutching her chest. When she screamed, Kimberly let the tears spill out of her eyes as she watching her sister writhe in pain. “Mo, did you take your meds today?”, Kimberly placed a hand on her cheek, hoping that it would calm the girl down. The girl could only shake her head and Kimberly could only nod in response. “Ok, where is it? Where are your meds, Mo?”, Kimberly couldn’t get an answer out of the girl and she pulled out her phone, calling Jason.
“Jason, I need you to come to my house as fast as you can. Understand?”
“Alright, I’ll be right there.” He hung up and Kimberly called the pharmacy, knowing that Mo had already had her prescription filled for the next month. When she hung up, she heard rushed footsteps and looked up to see Jason standing there with a shocked look on her face. Kimberly went through Mo’s purse, pulling out her ID before turning to Jason.
“What’s wrong with her?”, Jason asked as he got down on one knee, hands hovering over Mo’s body. The girl was still gasping for air and Kimberly was trying to soothe her.
“Hold her. It helps to calm her down and whatever you do, don’t move her too much. I’ll be right back.”, Kimberly handed Mo over to Jason, making sure that he gently cradled her in his arms before she took off down the street. There was no time to get in her car and besides, with the ranger powers she could run faster than before and barely break a sweat. The pharmacy was only a couple miles from their house and she could get there in a minute tops. Arriving at the pharmacy, Kimberly ran up to the desk and demanded the prescription. It seemed like the pharmacist was scared of her and quickly ran to the back. When he came back, he asked for her ID which Kimberly handed over and the man nodded before letting her take the prescription. She ran the fastest that she had ever run in her life back to her house, almost breaking the front door when she entered. Mo was still on the ground in pain, Jason cradling her, and Kimberly grabbed a glass. Filling it with water, Kimberly rushed back over to her sister and practically smashed open the bottle, picking out two pills.
“Mo, open your mouth.”, Kimberly told the girl and Mo unclenched her teeth in order to do as her sister said. The two pills were in her mouth and down her throat in five seconds flat before Kimberly pulled Mo back into her arms, shoving Jason over in the process. Jason watched as Kimberly held her sister, holding back tears as Mo slowly began to breathe normally again. After a few minutes, Mo’s eyes closed from the exhaustion and her body went limp. He didn’t say anything when Kimberly picked her up and carried her to her room. When she came back downstairs, Jason finally got the courage to speak up.
“What was that?”, Jason didn’t get a response immediately as Kimberly was cleaning up the kitchen. “Kim….”
Kimberly sharply turned on her heel, “Don’t mention this to anyone, do you hear me?”
“Do not tell anyone that this happened. It’s Mo story to tell not mine, understand?”, Kimberly glared at him until he put his hands up defensively.
“Alright, I understand. I won’t tell anyone.”, Jason stood there as Kimberly went back to cleaning up the kitchen. “We have training in a couple hours, don’t be late.”, and with that Jason left the house. Kimberly just numbly stood at the kitchen sink, thinking about all that had happened in the past 10 minutes. She moved over to her phone, thinking that she should call her parents. Dialing the number, Kimberly leaned up against the counter and sighed when it went to voicemail after a couple rings. They didn’t care, but she still wanted them to know.
“Hey, mom. So, Mo had an episode today. She’s fine, but I thought that you guys would just like to know that she’s running out of time. We need to find one and quickly or else you’ll be down one daughter.”, Kimberly hung up without saying so much as ‘goodbye’ or ‘I love you’. She needed to save her sister because without Mo, nothing would be ok.
Wow, ok, so I was able to write out another chapter pretty quickly. Things this chapter were pretty intense, especially with Mo having an episode. I love hearing how you guys want Olivia and Trini to find out, so please keep letting me know. I also want to know what you guys think is wrong with Mo. Next chapter will be up soon. Thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys! <3
Chapter 9: Chapter 9
Trini's nightmares come to light. Mo and Olivia make up.
So maybe Kimberly going to training wasn’t the best idea. Zack was obviously still pissed at her, so Kimberly made it a point to avoid him the entire time. That was kind of hard when Jason decided that the two should spar today. She shot the leader a panicking look and Jason just shrugged at her, whispering that Zack requested it. Trini was paired up with Billy and Jason would be sparing with a putty. Each of them got into their fighting stances, Zack had an evil smirk on his face as they prepared to fight. When Alpha told them to start, Zack charged at her, throwing skilled and calculated punches in her direction. It was becoming harder and harder for Kimberly to dodge his punches as he was slowly backing her up against the wall. He finally got her right across the jaw and stars were the only thing that Kimberly was seeing. Zack didn’t stop there, he punched her in the gut, shoulder, arm, and once again in the face. The others were in the back trying to convince him to stop, but Zack just picked Kimberly up by her shirt and tossed her across the room. Her back slammed into the wall and Kimberly screamed out. Trini’s heart broke and she stormed over to her friend, throwing the hardest punch that she could. As the punch connected with his jaw, Zack slumped to the ground, eyes closed. Not caring that Billy and Jason were yelling at her, Trini turned around and rushed over to her girlfriend who was lying on the ground. The girl tried to get back up, but Trini pushed her down, not wanting her to get up too fast and make her injuries worse.
“Kim, just stay on the ground for a second.”, Trini turned her onto her back and snarled when she saw a huge gash across Kimberly’s forehead. Behind her, Jason and Billy were dragging Zack out of the pit, hoping that he wouldn’t wake up before then because Trini was ready to kill him. “You’re ok, baby.”, Trini ran a hand through Kimberly’s hair, the taller girl immediately releasing a sigh of content. “Alpha, can you get me some bandages and alcohol?”, Trini asked the android and it nodded before going back into the ship. Seeing Kimberly injured was something that terrified Trini, it even haunted her in her nightmares. Since she had started dating Kimberly, the nightmares had eased down, but loud noises still scared her, like yelling or slamming doors. It made her anxiety hit the roof and Kimberly getting hurt wasn’t helping. Zack had been able to help her with the nightmares, staying with her when she couldn’t sleep or until she fell asleep. When she told him that they weren’t happening as frequently, he would just call her or text her if he thought she needed him.
Alpha 5 came running back, bandages and alcohol in hand, “Here, Master Trini. All the things that you asked for.” Trini mumbled a ‘thank you’ before getting to work on Kimberly’s forehead. She could practically hear Rita cackling in her head and she willed the sound to just go away. Last night was the first time that she had a nightmare about Rita and it consisted of the woman killing Kimberly. Soon, Kimberly’s head was all patched up and Trini placed a kiss on the bandage.
“Thanks.”, Kimberly spoke and Trini just pecked her lips, standing up and holding out a hand for her girlfriend.
“No problem. I’m going to kill Zack.”, Trini let the anger seep through her voice, but Kimberly cupped her face, kissing her and making Trini’s angry thoughts wash away.
“Trini, he didn’t do it on purpose. Maybe his mom isn’t doing so great and he was just zoning out. Besides, this is what battles are like.”, Kimberly reminded her, making Trini shiver. The battle was just something that Trini wished she could forget, rather the events that happened before it. Rita invaded the only place that she felt safe and violated her personal space, then she killed Billy. “Hey, T, where did you go?”, Kimberly lift Trini’s head up to face her and she saw fear in Trini’s eyes.
“I’m fine. Let’s go back to your place. I really don’t want to deal with my mom.”, or the dents in my wall was what Trini wanted to add on, but she wasn’t ready to let Kimberly in on that secret yet. Kimberly nodded, grabbing Trini’s hand as the two walked out of the pit and jumped through the water onto the cliff. The walk back to the Hart household was one that Kimberly wanted to end, she wanted to hang out with her girlfriend and she needed to check on Mo. She figured that her sister would still be asleep after her episode, but she still needed to make sure that she was alright. They were nearing the house when Trini pulled Kimberly to a stop, the taller girl looking down the street at her house.
“Kim, what’s wrong?”, Trini asked, noticing that the girl isn’t focusing on her.
“Nothing.”, Kimberly answered, but when she looked back at Trini, she cracked. “Ok, so Mo got really drunk and I need to make sure that she is ok.”
“How bad was it?”, Trini looked at Kimberly with concern.
Kimberly sighed, flashing back to when Mo was screaming in pain earlier that day, “She was pretty drunk and she isn’t supposed to drink alcohol with her meds.” As soon as she said that, Kimberly realized her mistake and went to fix it when Trini interrupted her.
“Meds? What does Mo need medicine for?”
“No, no. You cannot say anything and you need to forget that I said anything.”, Kimberly rushed out, but Trini wasn’t backing down.
“Kim, just tell me. You can trust me I promise.”, Trini tried to get Kimberly to look at her.
“Trini, I can’t. It’s not something that I can just tell people, no matter how much I trust them it isn’t my story to tell.”, Kimberly saw the hesitance in Trini’s eyes and she grabbed both of her hands. “Please, Trini. I promised Mo and I am not breaking that promise. Even for you.”
Trini immediately nodded, “Ok. If you ever need help, just tell me ok?”
“Ok.”, Kimberly released one of Trini’s hands and they walked to the Hart house. When they walked in, Kimberly sped up the stairs and went into Mo’s room. The girl was lying on her side, fast asleep and it made Kimberly sigh with relief. She went back downstairs to see Trini in the kitchen making something to eat. “Babe, you really don’t need to make anything. We can just order pizza.”, Kimberly told her, but Trini just waved a hand at her.
“I’m making you and Mo some food.”, Trini turned back to her work and Kimberly chuckled. Walking over, she wrapped her arms around Trini’s waist, frowning when she felt Trini stiffen.
“What’s wrong?”, Kimberly pulled back to look at Trini.
“Nothing.”, Trini went back to cooking. Kimberly decided to leave it alone and grabbed Mo’s pills, taking them upstairs with her. As she walked into Mo’s room, she smiled when she saw a picture on the nightstand. It was of a young Kimberly and Mo at the zoo, both of them decked out in panda gear with the panda right behind them. That was Mo’s favorite picture of them, despite the fact that Kimberly insisted that the best picture was of them on their first roller coaster and both of them are crying. Movement beside her broke Kimberly out of her thoughts and she turned to see Mo waking up.
Kimberly placed the pills next to the photo and sat down on the edge of the bed, “Mo.”
“Kim.”, Mo’s voice still sounded weak as the girl tried to sit up, wincing when a dull pain went through her.
“Easy, sis.”, Kimberly helped her sit up, ignoring when Mo glared at her. “Are you feeling any better?”
“I don’t need you to babysit me, Kimberly.”, Mo snapped at her, rubbing her eyes as she tried to adjust to being awake.
“That isn’t what I asked.”, Kimberly tilted her head to the side, watching as Mo huffed and crossed her arms over her chest.
“No pain, no shortness of breath, and no tightening of the chest.”, Mo gave her a smirk and Kimberly put her hands up defensively.
“That’s all I wanted to know.”, Kimberly ruffled Mo’s hair, laughing when the girl snarled at her. “Trini’s making dinner if you want some. Also, make sure to take your meds.”
Mo scoffed, “Whatever.”
“I’m serious, Mo. You know that they help you prevent episodes like what happened today. If you don’t take your meds, then your timer runs out faster.”
“Why can’t they just get the thing?”, Mo began fiddling with her sleeves, feeling her nerves start to act up again.
“You know that it takes awhile, sis. You’re moving up on the waiting list.”, Kimberly placed a hand on top of her sister’s.
“What if I die tomorrow? Or tonight? Or next week?”, Mo was obviously getting ready to panic and Kimberly just wrapped her arms around her.
“Relax, Mo. They are doing everything that they can and I’m sure that they will be calling soon saying that they found one. Then, you won’t ever have to take these meds again or worry about your stress levels. Before that happens though, I need you to promise me something.”
“Anything.”, Mo didn’t want to disappoint her sister even if she was mad at her.
“Stop drinking. You know that you aren’t supposed to drink alcohol especially with your meds. It’s dangerous.”, Kimberly watched as Mo rolled her eyes and she forced her sister to look at her. “Mohini Hart, you better do as I say.”
“Fine.”, Mo relented and Kimberly smiled, patting the top of her head. The girl got off of the bed and went to walk out of the room when she turned back to Mo.
“Come down and eat. Maybe we can watch a movie tonight.”, Kimberly suggested.
Mo shook her head, “I don’t think that’s a good idea, Kim. I’ll eat with you guys, but I have things that I have to do.” Kimberly nodded and walked out of the room, feeling the sadness that her sister didn’t want to spend time with her anymore. They ate dinner in silence, Mo not wanting to talk and Trini’s head was somewhere else. The movie didn’t happen and Trini left right after dinner, claiming that her mother was calling her home. When Kimberly closed the door, she turned around to see Mo staring at her with a sad look in her eyes before turning on her heel and walking up the stairs without a word.
Trini was lying in her bed, sleeping peacefully when she smelled the familiar stench of fish and saltwater. She knew what was going to happen and didn’t want to open her eyes, but when she heard the cackle, they snapped open. Rita was above her once again, glowing green eyes staring at her with that evil glint in them.
“Hello again, Yellow. It’s so good to see you.”, Rita wrapped her claws around Trini’s neck, laughing when the younger girl squirmed. “I’m sure you don’t feel the same.”, Rita cackled before picking Trini up and slamming her into the brick wall beside her bed. The claw around her neck tightened and Trini couldn’t breathe. “Ah, this is familiar isn’t it.”
“What d-do you want?”, Trini is able to gasp out before the hand tightens so that Trini can’t get any air in. She could feel herself slipping away until Rita let up her hold a little bit, but terror still was going through Trini’s veins.
A claw went under Trini’s shirt and her nails cut across her stomach, causing the smaller girl to whimper, “I want for you to be scared. Your fright is so delicious.”, Rita’s eyes glowed even more green as they looked at Trini’s whimpering form. “Hmmmm. Let’s talk to your little girlfriend, shall we?”, Rita backed away and suddenly, Kimberly appeared behind the woman. She was badly beaten and breathing heavily, looking like she had been tortured.
“Kimberly.”, Trini whimpered and the brunette looked up at her, her eyes bloodshot and lips trembling.
“Trini.”, Kimberly’s voice cracked. Rita wrapped a hand around her neck and Trini screamed out as she choked the life out of her girlfriend.
Trini shot up in her bed and frantically looked around her room. The dents in the wall were still there even though she had tried to fix them. She could feel Rita’s hands on her throat and she threw off the covers to check her stomach. Sure enough, a huge claw mark was running across her stomach and blood was gushing out of it. The ranger healing would heal it pretty quickly, but it didn’t stop the fear that Trini felt immediately afterwards. It wasn’t like Trini could go back to sleep after a nightmare like that, so she changed into her school clothes and began her walk to the mountain. What she didn’t expect was for Olivia to be up at the same time and for her to spot Trini walking away.
“Trini!”, Olivia yelled out her window when she saw her tiny friend start walking down the street. When she turned to her, Olivia could see tear tracks on Trini’s face and waved for her to come inside. Trini leaped up to the window, no problem, and once she was inside, she burst into tear, letting Olivia wrap her in a hug. It seemed like they sat there for hours until Trini finally stopped crying, only light sniffles were heard and Olivia pulled back in the slightest. Trini’s eyes were puffy and her face red, tears still in her eyes even though they weren’t spilling over. “What’s wrong?”, Olivia finally asks, but Trini just shakes her head.
“Not tonight.”, the tiny girl says, her voice sounding broken. Olivia just nods and holds her friend until they both fall asleep again.
Mo had been avoiding Kimberly since the episode a few days before. When her sister asked if she needed a ride, Mo didn’t even turn around to acknowledge that Kimberly was even there. A huff was the only thing that she heard before Kimberly stomped off, slamming the front door when she left. Wen gave her a ride to school and Mo continued to avoid Kimberly like the plague. This was exactly the same thing that Olivia was doing to Mo and it was starting to annoy her. Now that it had been a few days, Mo finally decided that enough was enough and waited patiently by Olivia’s locker for the blonde at the end of the day. She saw her approaching and immediately prepared herself to have this conversation.
Olivia paused when she saw that Mo was waiting by her locker, “What are you doing here, Mo?”
“I just wanted to see my beautiful girlfriend who I haven’t talk to in 4 days. Am I not allowed to do that?”, Mo crossed her arms over her chest, eyeing Olivia as the blonde just kept her gaze on the ground.
“You shouldn’t be here.”, Olivia mumbled and Mo rolled her eyes.
“Why? Why can’t I talk to you and why can’t you talk to me?”
“Because!”, the girl exclaimed before she went back to her original stance.
“Because why?!”, Mo pressed, anger boiling up to the surface.
“Because your mom said that I couldn’t see you anymore. I’m only supposed to talk to you at band practice and that’s it or else she will ruin my family. My dad is already in jail, Mo, I don’t need any other problems.”, Olivia finally told.
“Screw what my mother says! If she does anything to hurt you then I will make sure that she pays for it because you make me extremely happy, Olivia. That should be the only thing that matters to her, but it isn’t.”, Mo moved forward and grabbed Olivia’s hands in her own. “I will protect you from her because she can’t do shit to you without hurting me.” Olivia threw her arms around Mo’s neck, joy overtaking her body.
“Thank you.”, Olivia whispered and she pulled back to connect their lips. “So, the band is going out for dinner today. You’re coming right?”
“I actually didn’t know that it was happening, but of course I’m coming.”, Mo gave her a smile and the blonde kissed her one more time.
“Ok, we’re taking Wen’s truck, so we will all come pick you up. 6:30. Be ready.”, Olivia pressed a kiss to her cheek before skipping down the hallway. Mo walked out of the school feeling on top of the world. She had been able to fix things with her girlfriend and her parents were back out on a business trip.
Mo checked the clock and saw that it read 6:25. She smoothed out her dress and grabbed her purse, in five minutes her girlfriend would be here with the rest of the band to go to a nice team dinner. When she walked downstairs, she was met with the angry face of her sister. Kimberly was standing by the front door, a frown plastered on her face as she looked at Mo.
“Frowning gives you wrinkles, Kim. You should know this.”, Mo said sarcastically as she stared down Kimberly.
“It’s been awhile since we talked, Mo. Why is that?”, Kimberly tilted her head and Mo just scoffed at her.
“I don’t know, you tell me.”, Mo walked into the living room, looking for her lip gloss.
Kimberly followed her, “Is it because I told you to take your meds because that is something that you really need to do, Mo.”
“You only made it seem like I couldn’t take care of myself.”, Mo turned around to face Kimberly. “But no, it’s not that.”
“It’s because I’m dating Trini and she is actually happy with me.”, Kimberly smirked, knowing she hit a nerve.
“You’re implying that I couldn’t make Trini happy? Please, Kim. If you hadn’t asked her out, then we would be getting married right now.”
“Yeah right. She didn’t even start talking to you until after I asked her out. Whenever you would greet her she would just nod.”
Mo huffed, “Well at least I could actually talk to mine without sounding like a complete idiot. Olivia would always ask me why you were so awkward around her and because I was being a good sister, unlike you, I said that I didn’t know.”
“How am I the bad sister here? You didn’t have to engage in my game, but you did anyways because you’re petty.”
“Oh you are just as petty as I am, Kim. You asked out my crush because I took your car. Who does that?”, Mo exclaimed and the two glared at each other.
“At least I’m in love with the one that I asked out, you don’t even know what you’re feeling and you’re dying anyways!”, Kimberly’s eyes widened when she thought about what she said. Placing a hand over her mouth, she went to fix it before Mo interrupted.
“Always going for the low blows.”, Mo shook her head.
Mo held up a hand, “Save it, Kimberly. You know, you have never had to deal with any of the shit that I have, but you haven’t made it any easier on me. Do you know how hard it is being the twin of Kimberly Ann Hart? Head cheerleader, top bitch, and school hoe!”
“Don’t you dare call me that.”, Kimberly snarled at her sister. “You are the one who started all of this. If you had just left my car alone then none of this would have happened.”
Neither of them heard the front door open.
“If you hadn’t asked out Trini then I wouldn’t have asked out Olivia to get back at you!”
“What?”, Mo’s blood ran cold as she realized Kimberly hadn’t said that.
AHHHHHH! Shit is going down next chapter! I also got a request to introduce Trini's PTSD a little more, so we have some of that here. Next chapter should definitely be up soon and I hope that you guys liked this chapter because I worked really hard to make sure that it flows, even though it might not. What do you guys think is going to happen next chapter? Let me know! Thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys! <3
Chapter 10: Chapter 10
Olivia finds out the truth and so does Trini. A huge mistake is made.
Olivia’s voice cut through Mo’s heart like a knife. Slowly, she turned around to see the blonde, tears already in her eyes as she stared at the two sisters. A look of disbelief and hurt was on her face while her bottom lip was trembling.
“You only asked me out because Kimberly asked out Trini?”, Olivia barely got out the words before a sob escaped her mouth.
“Olivia…”, Mo took a step forward before Olivia interrupted her.
“No, tell me the truth.”, Olivia put a hand out to stop Mo from walking towards her.
“Yes, but-“, Mo was once again interrupted.
“I can’t believe you. Did you even care about how much that would hurt me? Do you even care about me at all?”, Olivia was just barely keeping herself together as she looked at her now ex-girlfriend in the face.
Mo swallowed the lump forming in her throat, “Of course I do, Olivia.”
“I can’t even tell what’s the truth and what’s a lie anymore.”, Olivia wiped her tears before pointed at Kimberly, “And you? Did you ask out Trini do get back at Mo for taking your car?” Kimberly was taken aback by the question and Mo frowned. “Oh, do you two seriously think that I’m that stupid. I might be stupid enough to think that you have feelings for me, but I’m not stupid enough to know the real reason that you were fighting.”
“Yes.”, Kimberly said quietly and Olivia threw her hands up in the air.
“Of course you did. God, you both got so caught up in your game of revenge that you completely ignored how much your decisions were going to affect everyone around you.”, Olivia turned to leave before stopping and turning around to face them. “You two are the meanest people that I have ever met.” She then stormed out of the house, leaving Mo and Kimberly to really think about what was going on. Mo turned to look at Kimberly, tears running down her face and Kimberly felt her heart break for her sister.
“Mo.”, Kimberly tried, but the girl just shook her head.
“How did she get in?”, Mo was pacing around the room. “How, Kimberly?!”
“I think that I might have left the door unlocked when I came home.”, Kimberly couldn’t even look at her sister right now.
“I can’t believe she heard that. My life is ruined, I mean, I’m never going to have anyone as great as her. We just made up today and everything was going to be great. She never would have had to know.”
Kimberly placed her hands on Mo’s shoulders, “She would have found out anyways. Go after her and try to fix it.” Mo ran out the door to see Wen standing there with Charlie and Stella. As soon as Mo stepped out of the house, they pulled Olivia behind them, forming a shield around the girl who was sobbing into Charlie’s chest.
Wen stepped in front of Mo, stopping her from moving any closer to Olivia, “No. You don’t get to say anything. I can’t believe you, Mo. Why would you do something so cruel?”
“Shut it, Mo. We don’t want to hear your excuses as to why you did this. Do you know what is even more despicable than you doing this? The fact that your sister did the exact same thing to Trini. I hope you both burn in hell.”, Stella was about to march off when she stopped. “Oh and if you didn’t get the memo, you’re out of the band.” Wen and Stella walked away with a crying Olivia in-between them. Charlie stayed back and just shook his head at her.
“Charlie.”, Mo took a step forward, but the boy put a hand out to stop her.
“I really thought that you were a good person, Mo. You were different from the rest of them and I believed that you were a true friend to us. I guess I was wrong.”, Charlie went to walk away when Mo called out to him again.
“Please, don’t be mad at me.”, Mo begged.
Charlie looked at the ground before looking back up at his former friend, “I’m not mad, Mo. I’m disappointed.” He walked off leaving Mo to cry. She dropped to her knees, sobbing uncontrollably as her friends drove off, Olivia not even looking at her through the window.
Kimberly watched from the window of her house as Mo’s friends cast her out and Olivia cried behind them. This was going to happen to her when Trini found out. She saw Mo collapse to the ground, a crying mess, and she wanted to go hug her sister, but she couldn’t. Because she knew. She knew that it was all her fault that this happened. If she had just let it slide when Mo borrowed her car instead of being a petty bitch, then she would have realized her feelings for Trini and Mo would have realized her feelings for Olivia eventually. How could she ever make it up to Mo? How could she ever make it up to Trini? There was only one way that she could, she had to tell Trini herself. If she didn’t then things were going to be so much worse for her and Trini might never forgive her. Either way, Trini might never forgive her, but she didn’t want the girl to hear it from someone else, she at least wanted her to hear it from her.
Jumping out the window, Kimberly tried to control her nerves as she got closer and closer to Trini’s house. When she arrived, she stood outside Trini’s window for about 10 minutes before she finally climbed up. Trini was sitting at her desk and jumped when Kimberly’s face popped into view. She smiled at her girlfriend, opening the window to let her into the room and when Kimberly was in, she wrapped her arms around her neck.
“Hey.”, Trini smiled up at her. Kimberly seemed tense and nervous because she was glancing around.
“Hi. Can we talk?”, Kimberly sat down on Trini’s bed while the smaller girl walked over to her. Sitting down next to her, Trini scanned Kimberly’s face before saying something.
“I wanted to talk to you too.”, Trini couldn’t contain the joy that was inside her as she tried to wait to say what she wanted to say.
“You go first.”, Kimberly fiddled with her hands as Trini stared at her.
Trini began, “Kim, since you pulled me off that cliff, I knew that we were going to be more than just friends. We went to Krispy Kreme together and you talked to me even when I would just sit there and glare at you. Then, I finally realized that you weren’t all that bad.”
“Let me finish. Even though you have done some questionable things in the past, I hope that you know how worth it you are. The boys and I all care so much about you and we wouldn’t be the power rangers without you. You put me back together when I fall apart and make me feel wanted. That’s why I love you.” Fuck. “I am in love with you, Kimberly Ann Hart.” Shit, this was not good.
Kimberly was frozen. She couldn’t move or think. Trini was in love with her and she was in love with Trini. But there was no way that Trini was going to forgive her when she told her what she did. The only thing that Kimberly could think to do was grab Trini and pull her into a kiss, knowing that it would probably be the last time that she would ever kiss the girl.
“I love you too.”, Kimberly whispered on Trini’s lips and the two kissed again.
When they pulled away, Trini was smiling brightly at her, “So, what was it that you wanted to talk to me about.” The moment of truth. Kimberly backed away a little bit, putting some distance between the two so that if Trini was going to slap her, then she couldn’t reach her.
“Ok, so I need you to not freak out, please.”
“I’ll try my best.”, Trini crossed her arms over her chest, getting nervous as Kimberly stared at her with those brown eyes.
“I didn’t ask you out because I wanted to. I asked you out because Mo had a crush on you and I was trying to get back at her.”, Kimberly waited. Trini stood there for a second, arms slipping down to her sides as she was in shock.
“Y-you what?”, Trini voice shook as she tried to speak.
“Please, Trini, you have to forgive me.”, Kimberly took a step forward, but Trini backed away.
“I can’t believe you. Do you know how vulnerable I made myself with you? I showed you every part of myself that no one else in this world has seen and now I find out that it wasn’t even real. That you didn’t care about me and that it was all just a part of your game to get back at Mo, for what? A stupid car! She’s your fucking sister! You share things that’s what you do!”, Trini was seething.
“No I don’t want to hear it, get out. Get out now and don’t ever talk to me again. We might be rangers, but that is all that we will ever be.”, Trini spoke through gritted teeth, her eyes only projecting hurt as they stared at Kimberly. The taller girl nodded, making her way to the window before stopping and turning around.
“I’m sorry.”, was the only thing that Kimberly could think to utter before she jumped out. Tears were streaming down her face as she ran all the way back to her house. Trini slammed her window shut, ignoring the glass cracking as she walked out of her room and downstairs. She pulled herself onto the counter and opened up the top cabinet, pulling out a bottle of wine that her mother kept up where she couldn’t reach it. Tonight her parents were out with her brothers and Trini was going to drink herself numb. Hopping down from the counter, Trini made her way towards the mountain, taking sips of the wine every five seconds. She would never find anyone. Love wasn’t real.
Kimberly had been in her room since she got home and hadn’t seen her sister in hours. She couldn’t hear Mo crying, there was no sound coming from her room. The only thing that could be heard through the house was Kimberly’s sobs. Picking up her phone, she looked at all of the messages that she had sent Trini in the past hour.
My Hart <3
Trini, please forgive me.
My Hart <3
I do love you. I am so in love with you. Please, respond.
My Hart <3
Trini, at least tell me that you are ok.
My Hart <3
There was no response to any of those texts and Kimberly felt like she could die. She didn’t know if Trini was ok or if she was even alive. Suddenly her phone rang and she felt excitement rush through her, but it quickly went away when she saw that it was just the other rangers.
I’m guessing that you told her because I can’t find her, Kimberly.
Told who what?
Kimberly, what did you do?
Before she could even type a letter, Zack sent out the text to the rest of the group.
The only reason that Kimberly asked out Trini was to get back at Mo, who actually the one who has a crush on Trini. Mo then asked out Olivia to get back at Kimberly. The Hart twins everyone!
Holy shit! Why would you do that, Kim?!
That’s what I want to know, but we have more important things to worry about. I saw Trini about half an hour ago and she was drunk off her ass, mumbling about how she would never find love and how it was all just a myth. I tried to get her to stay, but she stumbled off somewhere and now I can’t find her. Can you guys help?
I’ll be there in five.
On my way.
I’m coming too.
No you aren’t.
I think that you should stay away for a little bit, Kim.
I’m coming and there is nothing that you can do about it. I need to fix this.
Ok, but just don’t say anything to Trini if you find her.
Alright. I’m on my way.
Kimberly set her phone down, standing up and brushing her hair. Slipping on her leather jacket, she grabbed her phone from the bed, taking a few deep breaths before she opened the door. She was going to fix this and everything was going to be ok.
Mo sat on the couch, nursing a bottle of gin as she watched the TV. She had screwed up. Both her and Kimberly had screwed up big time. Speaking of, Kimberly descended the stairs and the two sisters looked at each other, only looks of regret on their faces. Taking another sip, Mo offered the bottle to Kimberly who shook her head. She sat down next to her sister and remained silent.
“We screwed up big time.”, Mo spoke her thoughts as she took another swig of the bottle. Kimberly chuckled as a tear went down her face.
Looking up from the floor, Kimberly smiled sadly at her sister, “Yeah, we did.”
“We pulled them into our little game, not even thinking about how fucked up it was and now, look at us. Pathetic excuses for women.”, Mo chuckled dryly. Kimberly reached for the bottle, trying to keep it away from her sister, but she was much smarter and kept the bottle out of her twin’s reach. “Nope. Mom always drank to forget. I wanna forget.”, Mo said sadly and threw her head back to take a huge gulp of the bottle.
“I know, Mo. I do too, but all that we can do now is give them space.”, Kimberly frowned as her sister threw her head back, laughing hysterically.
“Give them space to what, Kim? Hate us more? Face it, we blew our chance because we were too stupid to realize that we were being childish. You always had feelings for Trini and I always had feelings for Olivia, but we covered them up because we were scared. Scared of accepting something for what it was.”
Kimberly looked her sister dead in the eyes, “And what was it?”
“Love. Our parents never being there for us as we grew up, it made us cold hearted bitches who never knew what love was. Ty and Scott were basically our parents rolled into one. Olivia and Trini showed us what love really was. We learned something from this, even though it doesn’t feel like it. It’s too late, Kim. We fucked up and now, we will never be happy. Maybe we deserve it.”, Mo spewed out and she went back to watching the TV. Her sister stood up, sighing in the process, and made her way to the door.
“The guys can’t find Trini. I’m going to help them. Stay here and do not go anywhere while you are drunk.”, Kimberly opened and closed the door, leaving Mo alone with her thoughts once again. No matter how much of the bottle that Mo drank, Olivia still occupied her thoughts. The hurt and betrayed look on her face when she heard what she had said was forever burned into Mo’s brain. As she brought the bottle to her lips again, she realized that it was empty and sighed, getting up off the couch to stumble over to her parents alcohol cabinet. Searching through the bottles, Mo settled on Jack and went to walk back to the couch when the doorbell rang. The girl groaned as she dragged her feet over to the door, hoping that Kimberly had ordered food before she left. What was behind that door was something that Mo had not expected at all. She opened the door to reveal a drunk Trini who had a fiery look in her eyes when she saw Mo.
“Sorry, Trini, but Kim isn’t here. If you have come here to tell me how much of a bitch I am, I don’t need it because I have gotten about ten thousand of those speech-“, Mo was interrupted by Trini smashing their lips together in a rough, heated kiss. The smaller girl pushed her into the house, slamming the door behind her with her foot. Mo was too drunk to realize what was going on and she pulled Trini closer to her, needing the contact, while tangling her hands into Trini’s soft hair. They stumbled up the stairs, the kisses getting more heated as they finally made it to Mo’s room. Shutting the door, Trini slammed the girl’s back into the door and attacked her neck, biting and sucking as hard as she could. A low moan sounded from Mo and Trini lifted the girl up, carrying her to the bed. Dropping her on the bed, Trini detached their lips to rip her own shirt off, Mo doing the same. Mo grabbed the back of Trini’s neck, connecting their mouths once again in an open mouthed kiss. Both of them were too drunk to realize the grave mistake that they were making.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Oml! I was so excited to release this chapter, mainly because it is so drama filled and the ending is just....ugh. I really hope that you liked it and if you have any questions please ask them! Question of the day: What do you think is going to happen next chapter? Do you think that Mo and Trini will have a relationship?
Thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys! <3
Chapter 11: Chapter 11
When Kimberly showed up at the mountain, Zack was not pleased to see her. He walked over to her, fury written all over his face. As she got closer to them, Zack pushed her shoulders, keeping her from walking any closer.
“This is YOUR fault, Kim!”, Zack pushed her again and Jason ran over, trying to restrain him.
“Zack, calm down!”, Jason had a firm grip on the boy’s shoulders, keeping him from getting to Kimberly.
“Once we find Trini, I want you to leave her alone. For good.”, Zack seethed.
“Come on, Zack. Let’s just find Trini.”, Jason coaxed the boy and Zack nodded his head, walking away. Billy didn’t walk away with them, but walked over to Kimberly. He was nervously wringing his hands together and he kept his gaze on the ground.
“I don’t think that you’re a bad person, Kim.”, Billy admitted after a few beats of silence. “I’m just disappointed.”
Tears spilled out of Kimberly’s eyes, “I’m sorry, Billy.”
“I’m not the one that you should be apologizing to.”, Billy shrugged.
“I promise you, I tried, but she wouldn’t listen.”, Kimberly’s voice shook as she tried her best, but Billy just nodded his head, unreadable expression on his face.
Billy finally looked up at her and smiled a little, “I knew that you would, but Trini just needs time, Kim. I can see it in your eyes though, you really fell for her.”
“I did.”, Kimberly wiped her tears.
“When she is ready to listen, you should tell her.”, Billy placed a soft hand on her shoulder before walking after Jason and Zack. Kimberly pulled herself together and made her way after the boys, making sure to stay a few feet away from them.
“Alright, Zack and I will search downtown. Billy, you search up by her house and around that neighborhood. Kim, you can search wherever you like.”, Jason nodded at all of them and they split up, leaving Kimberly to get enough strength to actually go searching for Trini.
Trini woke up with a pounding in her head, wincing as she sat up in a bed that wasn’t hers. Her eyes widened as she looked around, realizing that she had done something that she already regretted. It was still dark outside and she looked down to see that she was naked, heat coming off of something next to her. Slowly, she turned her head, feeling her heart stop and blood run cold as she saw who it was. Mo was lying on her stomach, naked, fast asleep. What did she do? Oh shit. Memories rushed back into Trini’s head so fast that it made her headache worse and she winced. Telling Kimberly she loved her, finding out their relationship was a lie, getting drunk. Sleeping with Mo. Fuck. This was not good, this was not good at all. Kimberly was never going to forgive her. Wait, why did she care what Kimberly was going to think? It wasn’t like they were dating anymore and if Trini decided that she wanted to have something with Mo then Kimberly would have no say in it. A thing with Mo is out of the question though. Right?
A groan broke Trini out of her thoughts and she looked over to see Mo moving around before she turned her head towards the door, still asleep. Trini released a sigh and stood up, searching the floor for her discarded clothes. The last time she was doing this it was after she kissed Mo at the party and Kimberly got jealous. As she was looking, she couldn’t help but notice that Mo was involved in both of those situations. Olivia was going to be so pissed at her. That thought made her stop dead in her tracks as she was pulling her jeans on. She had just slept with Olivia’s girlfriend, she had betrayed her best friend. Quickly, Trini put on the rest of her clothes and leaped out the window, casting one last glance at the woman in bed. Never again would she have anything to do with the Hart twins. Trini made her way back to her house, not knowing that she had left something very important. Her beanie was lying under Mo’s bed, hiding from the world until it deemed that it was the right time to be found.
Sun peaked through the curtains and Mo winced as it hit her eyes. Yawning, Mo sat up looking around the room before she felt her heart start racing. Trini was here. She slept with Trini. Oh fuck. She leaped out of the bed, looking around to see if the smaller girl was still there, but she was met with silence. Nodding to herself, Mo tried convincing herself that it was just in her head and she didn’t actually sleep with Trini. It was just something that she had dreamed and---
“Oh fuck.”, Mo muttered, seeing a familiar yellow beanie peaking out from under her bed. Panic rushed through the girl’s veins as the yellow beanie stared up at her, seemingly mocking her with the fact that she had just slept with the girl that her sister loved. No matter how angry she was at Kimberly, she would never do this to her sister if she was in the right mindset. Running a hand through her hair, Mo could feel her the stress starting to build up and a sharp pain shot through her chest. She screamed out, but when she did she could hear footsteps running towards her room and she tossed the beanie under her bed where no one would see it. Kimberly burst through the door to see Mo collapsing to her knees and clutching her chest.
“Mo.”, Kimberly spoke quietly, bending down and wrapping her arms around her sister, who was still in a lot of pain. The girl was whimpering as Kimberly held her, hoping that it would just go away, but when it didn’t, Kimberly looked around for the medicine bottle. Seeing it on the beside table, Kimberly reached for it and crushed it in a moment of panic. Pills spilled onto the floor, the girl cursing as she saw most of them roll under the bed. She would worry about that later as she got two from the floor, crawling back over to her sister and opening her mouth to pop the pills in. Mo swallowed them, leaning on her sister’s shoulder as she waits for them to take effect. A few minutes later, the pain dulled down and Mo sighed with relief.
“Thanks, Kim.”, Mo tells her sister, who still has an iron grip on her. “Kim, you can loosen your grip now.”, she tried, but Kimberly wasn’t letting go.
“I’m sorry.”, Kimberly cried out, tears rolling down her cheeks and Mo sat up to look at her. “I did this to us. I screwed up everything and now it’s causing you to have more problems with your heart. It’s too much stress on you and if I had just forgiven you and not have been so petty--”, Kimberly choked on the words as she apologized, her arms still around Mo. What Kimberly expected was for Mo to say that it was her fault, for Mo to yell at her about how she was such a bitch. What she didn’t expect was for Mo to return the embrace, placing her head on Kimberly’s shoulder, comforting her as she cried her eyes out. “It’s all my fault, Mo.”, Kimberly sobbed out, but Mo just shook her head, breaking the hug to look at Kimberly.
When Kimberly avoided her gaze, Mo gripped her chin, tilting the girl’s head up to look at her, “We both did this, Kimberly. We are both equally to blame for this and it cost us the two best things in the world. Trini and Olivia may never forgive us because of what we did together. The two of us got so caught up in our little world that we didn’t see how it was going to affect everyone else around us.” Mo took a deep breath, holding back her own tears as she continued, “It sucks that what happened, happened. We lost sight of who we are, but one thing that we can never lose is each other. From this point forward, we need to stop being so petty and start being sisters. Yes, Mom and Dad put a lot of pressure on me to be the perfect Indian daughter. Yes, they abandoned you in the process and yes, everyone hates us now, even the people that were closest to us.” Mentioning the band and ranger caused the two to look away from each other for a second. “But we are going to move on, even if it requires letting go of Olivia and Trini. If they decide to forgive us, then that’s their choice, but we can never leave each other in the dark again.”
Kimberly sniffed, wiping the tears from her eyes, “Promise?”
Mo smiled, holding out her pinky for Kimberly, “Promise.” Kimberly wrapped her pinky around Mo’s, the two giving each other big grins before hugging again. “Now, how did finding Trini go?”, Mo asked, trying to not let the guilt show in her voice with the fact that she knew exactly where Trini was.
“Not great. Zack almost ripped my head off, yes he knows,”, Kimberly added on when she saw Mo’s eyes grow big. “He found out a couple days ago and let’s just say, he didn’t take it well. At least when Trini found out she didn’t punch me.”
“Zack punched you?”, Mo had a confused look on her face. Zack never seemed like the violent type.
“He is protective over Trini. Everyone is considering the fact that her home situation isn’t the greatest and she was attacked by that lady who destroyed the town.”, Kimberly explained, thinking back to when they were standing at the football field, staring at Trini who had a huge claw mark across her neck. “Anyways, I went to meet up with them last night and Jason barely looked at me, Billy was the only one who talked to me. I hated disappointing him by admitting what I did, but he didn’t judge me for it. In fact, he told me that he still believed that I was a good person.”, she looked up to see that Mo’s expression had changed. “Let me guess, the band reacted way worse than my friends.”
“So much worse. Wen wouldn’t even let me take a step near Olivia, he just yelled at me while Charlie stood there.”
Kimberly winced, “That sounds awful. I’m sorry that happened to you, Mo.”
“It gets worse.”, Mo turned to see the girl staring at her with a frown and she looked anywhere but at her. “Stella kicked me out of the band.”
“What?! She can’t do that!”, Kimberly was raging. Mo had put so much time into that band and it had put a lot more stress on her, stress that wasn’t needed.
“I’m sure that everyone was thinking it, so I didn’t fight it. It’s fine, Kim. A little less stress could do my heart some good, especially with all of this going on.”, Mo chuckled, but it wasn’t a real one. “At least you have someone who thinks you’re a good person. They all basically disowned me.”
“You have me, Mo, and we just promised that we would never leave each other in the dark again. So, let’s get dressed, go to school, and walk in there with our heads held high. Even though we know that our lives have turned to complete and utter shit.”, Kimberly stood up, holding out a hand to Mo and her sister took it, standing up.
“Let’s go, sis.”, Mo agreed, going into her closet to pick out a new dress and wedges. “Grab your leather jacket, Kimmy. We’re going in style.”
The throbbing in Trini’s head didn’t stop and her mother yelling at her in Spanish didn’t help it at all. When she opened her texts, she saw that Zack had sent her about a thousand messages, all of them asking where she was and what happened with Kimberly. Kimberly. She couldn’t even think about the girl without feeling tears well up in her eyes. The Hart twins were two of the most evil beings in the world and they had pulled her into their little game. Olivia. Trini’s eyes widened, quickly going to her contacts and calling her best friend.
A nasally voice answered the phone, “Hello?”
“We were played for fools, Trini. They used us to get back at each other. They never cared about us.”
“I know, O. We’ll get through this, but right now we need to go to school and not let it affect us any more than it has.”, Trini could hear a sob come through the phone.
“I don’t know if I can, T. I just never thought that she could do that to me. Why would they do that?”
“At least you didn’t tell Mo that you loved her.”, Trini sighed, plopping down on her bed and putting an arm over her eyes.
“I’m so sorry, Trini.”
“Don’t worry about it. I know how much of a fool I was, but we need to get over it. Pick yourself up and let’s just get today over with. We will do this together, ok?”, Trini waited for a few seconds, the silence slowly killing her as she waited for Olivia’s response.
“Ok. I’ll see you there.”
Trini hung up the phone, going to her drawers and picking out something fresh. She threw it on, making sure to put on deodorant, and jumped out her window. As she was walking to school, she noticed a red truck speeding to catch up with her and when she turned, she saw Zack poking his head out the side of the passenger side window.
“Crazy girl, wanna ride?”, Zack gestured to the truck, sadness pouring out of his eyes as she looked at her.
“Sure.”, Trini gave him a reassuring smile before hopping into the back. Billy was in the seat next to her, he gave her a wave before turning back to his phone, engrossed in something on it. She tried not to notice the boys glancing at her every five seconds, but eventually it annoys her and she snaps. “Ok, what is it?”, she looks around at them, all of them avoiding her gaze. “Spill.”
“We’re just worried about you and how you are dealing with the situation.”, Billy blurted out, ducking his head to avoid Zack’s glare.
“Guys, I’m fine. Well, as fine as I can be, but I’ll get over it.”, Trini gives them a thumbs up, but that doesn’t convince Zack.
“Do you want me to beat her senseless?”, he asks, cracking his knuckles.
Trini snorts, “Zack, please don’t do anything stupid. Even though Kimberly did something terrible, she doesn’t deserve that. Two wrongs don’t make a right.”
“Fine.”, Zack huffed, sitting back in his seat and staying silent the entire rest of the way to school. When they pulled up, Trini saw Olivia standing with Stella and Wen by the flagpole, both of them hugging her, Charlie keeping a lookout for the Hart twins. Trini walked over to her friend and when Olivia saw her, the two embraced tightly.
“We’re gonna be ok.”, Trini whispered into her ear, feeling Olivia nod on her shoulder.
Olivia pulled away, linking their arms, “Let’s do this.” And the two got ready to start walking into the school when a familiar silver car pulled up, making both of them freeze. Kimberly and Mo got out, both of their eyes puffy and faces red as they walked up the path. Seeing Olivia and Trini, the two faltered in their step and the four stared at each other. Without warning, Olivia held her chin up and dragged Trini with her into the school, leaving the sisters to deal with their former friends. Stella scoffed, Wen just shook his head, and Charlie walked off, the other two following closely behind. Zack was angry and Jason pulled him away. Billy was the only one who stayed, staring at the two of them before walking over.
“I think that you should give them some time. They will get over it eventually and realize that you guys just made a mistake.”, he told them, smiling when he finished his sentence, optimism filling his voice.
“Thanks, Billy.”, Kimberly responded, getting ready to walk off when she noticed that Billy was following them. “Uh, Billy? Aren’t you going to go with the others?”
The boy frowned, shaking his head, “You guys need to have at least one person on your side. I know that you two aren’t bad people, you just screwed up, but it’s ok, I screw up all the time. My mom always forgives me once I give her a little space.”
“You’re the best, Billy Cranston.”, Mo spoke up, smiling at the boy before the three walked off, Billy rambling about something that he was building. The two sisters listened, glad that they weren’t all alone anymore.
Well, this chapter was emotional. Trini made a huge mistake and Mo did too. We found out that Mo has some problems with her heart and the Hart twins made up! It wasn't a huge chapter and I'm sorry that none of my chapters on any of the stories have really had anything going on, but drama is still to come for the stories, just give it time and bear with me please. Sometimes the chapters in between the drama can be really boring, trust me I understand. Question of the chapter: What do you think is going to happen?
Thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys! <3
Chapter 12: Chapter 12
Trini's nightmares are getting worse....so are her coping mechanisms. Billy and Jason find out about Mo's condition.
Trini shoots up in the bed, a sheer layer of sweat covered her body as she continued shaking from the nightmare. Since she had broken it off with Kimberly, the nightmares had gotten worse and each of them had Rita killing the girl that she loved. No matter how hard she tried, Trini couldn’t stop her overwhelming feelings for Kimberly even if she was angry at the girl. A part of her really wanted to forgive her, but she just couldn’t get over the feeling of betrayal. The shaking increased as images from her last nightmare flashed through her brain, Trini digging her fingernails into her palms, trying to keep herself from crying.
“Yellow….”, a voice rings through Trini’s ears and she jumps out of the bed, panic creeping up on her. She can practically feel Rita’s fingernails digging into her shoulder and her breath as she spoke in Trini’s ear. “You’re weak, yellow. All of the emotions that you feel are delicious. They are making me stronger by the minute and when I come back, you’ll be the first one that I kill last, so that you can watch everyone you love die. Just wait, yellow. Just wait.”, Rita’s voice echoes out of her head and Trini collapses to the floor, tears flowing freely out of her eyes. There was only one place that Trini could think of to go, grabbing her phone, she leapt out of her window and headed down the street. Twenty minutes later, Trini was panting, sweat rolling down the back of her neck as she rang the doorbell to the last place she would ever expect herself to be. The door opened and Mo Hart stared down at her, bottle of wine in hand.
“If you came here for Kimberly, sorry, but she is at Billy’s.”, Mo slurred, taking another sip of the bottle before Trini grabbed it out of her hands. “I have a feeling you aren’t here for Kimberly.”, Mo closed the door, stumbling over to the couch and plopping down with a huff. Trini drained the rest of the bottle, placing it on the coffee table before walking over the where she knew the Hart’s kept their alcohol.
“Came here for the booze.”, Trini spoke quietly as she picked out a bottle of Jack Daniel’s, walking over to the couch and sitting down next to Mo. The two sat in silence, each of them taking sips out of the bottle when their feelings surface again, until Trini broke it, “Why would she do that to me?”
Mo snorted, throwing her head back and gulping down some more of the liquid, “Honestly, I have no idea why we did what we did. We were just, petty and jealous I guess.”
“That isn’t an excuse.”, Trini grabbed the bottle back, sending Mo a glare.
“I’m not trying to excuse what I did, Trini. I fucked up and destroyed probably the only thing that made me happy in this world. It took all of this happening for me to realize that I didn’t have any feelings for you, I actually loved Olivia.”, Mo sadly looked down at her hands, letting herself drown in her own self pity for a second.
“Well, I guess you’re right. I have tried so hard to hate Kimberly, but….I just can’t do it. I love her even though she did that to me.”, Trini admitted, avoiding Mo’s gaze. “I can’t judge you though. You didn’t do anything to me, so I guess I can forgive you.”
“Friends?”, Mo asked hopefully.
“No.”, Trini shook her head, drinking some more of the bottle before handing it back to the girl next to her.
“So we are just, drinking buddies?”, Mo just wanted to talk to someone other than Kimberly and Billy.
Trini put a fist up in the arm, “Who wallow in self pity!” The two laughed, feeling themselves loosen up as they kept drinking. As Trini took another sip of the bottle, Rita’s voice was back in her head, except this time it was more aggressive.
“Tsk tsk, yellow. Hanging out with the enemy’s sister, what a shame. I thought you had at least a little spite in you,”, Rita’s voice let out a sigh. “But I guess I was wrong.” I can be spiteful Trini thought, hearing Rita cackle in her head. “Oh really? I don’t believe you! Kimmy hurt you so badly. If you really are spiteful, then get some revenge on her.” I will Trini kept encouraging Rita in her drunken state. “Think, yellow. What’s the one way that you can get to Kimmy?”, suddenly, Rita had appeared behind Mo, stroking a hand through the girl’s locks. Trini knew it was a vision, she knew that it was all just in her head, but the alcohol was getting to her and all that she wanted was to get revenge on Kimberly for hurting her so badly.
“What do you th--”, Mo began saying before Trini grabbed the back of her neck, slamming their lips together roughly. At first, Mo was shocked and didn’t respond, but she missed kissing someone and responded firmly. Trini moved over, straddling the girl as they continued to kiss, Mo opening her mouth to let Trini’s tongue in and placing her hands on Trini’s hips. Their minds were buzzing and Trini could hear Rita cackling in the back of her brain, starting to grind on Mo more. No sparks or fireworks were exploding around them as they kissed, just the dull feeling of guilt and pain in the two girl. Keeping their lips together, Trini got off of Mo’s lap, standing up and pulling the taller girl with her. She detached from Mo for a second before picking her up, the girl’s long legs immediately wrapping around her waist as she carried her up the stairs. Reaching Mo’s room, Trini closed the door and placed the girl on the bed, moving on top of her and connecting their lips again. Both of them just wanted to feel something, even if it wasn’t with the person that they wanted, it was still something.
Spending the night at Billy’s was refreshing for Kimberly, especially since Zack and Jason weren’t talking to her. She had accepted that Trini wasn’t going to be talking to her for awhile, but she had at least expected her best friend to talk to her. They had been icing her out during school and practice, it was starting to worry Kimberly. What if it affected how they morphed? What if they were in a battle and couldn’t morph because of what Kimberly did? There were so many ‘what ifs’ that it made her head hurt, but Billy put those at ease by just being there. He told her that she was still connected to the rangers even though she made a mistake, that would never change even in death. It was nice to feel like she was wanted again and to have someone other than her sister on her side. As she drove home from Billy’s, she couldn’t help but think about the look on Trini’s face when she told her. Her face paled and it seemed like her whole world came crashing down as Kimberly said those words.
Pulling up in her driveway, Kimberly sighed and turned her car off. When she walked into the house, she called out for her sister, wanting to know if she was ready for school and wanted to get breakfast. Kimberly walked around the living room, spotting a bottle of wine and spilled Jack Daniel’s on the floor.
“Dammit, Mo, we talked about this.”, Kimberly muttered to herself, making her way up the stairs. “Mohini Hart, you better be ready for school and have a very good excuse as to why you were drinking last night.”, she opened the door to Mo’s room and immediately covered her eyes. Mo was getting dressed and even though they were sisters, Kimberly really didn’t want to see that. “Couldn’t have warned a girl?”, Kimberly snapped and she heard Mo laughing.
“Sorry, but I wasn’t expecting you to be home this early.”, Mo laughed out, slipping her dress on and searching her closet for some wedges.
Kimberly peeked through her eyes, seeing that Mo was dressed and sighed, lowering her hand, “Wanna get some breakfast before we go?”
“I could totally use some coffee.”, Mo rubbed her temples, the hangover getting to her.
“I bet. Meet me down by my car, that should give you enough time to come up with why you were drinking when I specifically told you not to.”, Kimberly tilted her head to the side, giving her sister a fake smile before turning on her heel and walking back down the stairs to her car. Mo could feel her nerves acting up, wincing when the pain in her chest came back and she made her way over to her pill bottle only to see that it was crushed.
“Really, Kim.”, Mo mumbled, inspecting the bottle that didn’t even look like a bottle anymore. She noticed that some of the pills were poking out from under her bed and grumbled, getting on her knees to look under the bed, fear hitting her in the gut when she sees a yellow beanie in the middle of the floor. Grabbing it, Mo looked around to make sure that Kimberly wasn’t anywhere near her room and stuffed it in her bag, completely forgetting about the pills. The girl straightened out her hair, making her way outside to her sister’s car where Kimberly was already inside, looking at her with an impatient look.
“Let’s go, sis! You really do know how to take an eternity.”, Kimberly rolled her eyes as Mo got into the car.
“Says the girl who last year, wouldn’t leave without putting her face on and made us late literally every single day.”, Mo clapped back, raising an eyebrow at her sister who just chuckled.
“You got me there.”, Kimberly put the car in reverse, backing out of the driveway before the two made their way to Krispy Kreme.
They walked into school, Mo nervously glancing around to see if Trini was anywhere in sight so that she could give her the beanie back. Kimberly didn’t seem to notice, only dragging her sister with her over to Billy’s locker, stopping when she saw Jason standing with Billy. Mo noticed her sister’s hesitation, pushing her forward and when Kimberly turned to glare at her, she just shrugged.
“Sometimes you gotta face things head on, Kimberly.”, Mo quoted their mother with the only advice she had ever given her other daughter. Taking a deep breath, Kimberly walked over to where Billy and Jason were, stopping in front of them and not saying anything for a few seconds.
“Hey, Kim.”, Jason surprised her, giving her a smile and a wave.
“Hey, Jace.”, Kimberly smiled back at him turning to greet Billy when she noticed that he was halfway down the hallway, turning around to give her a thumbs up.
Jason sighed, “I wanted to talk to you.”
“About?”, Kimberly gulped, not knowing what was coming next.
“I’m sorry that I haven’t talked to you in a few days. It’s just, I thought that Trini needed me, but it turns out that she isn’t talking to anyone, not even Zack.”, Jason ran a hand through his hair.
“No, Jason, I’m sorry. I hurt one of out teammates and there is nothing that I can do to make it better.”
“Yes there is, Kimberly. You just need to give her time, but I shouldn’t have just abandoned you like that, it’s not what a good leader does.”, Jason looked at her with regret.
Kimberly just pulled him into a hug, “It’s fine, Jason.” Stepping back, she gave him a reassuring smile, “I just need my best friend. Billy was a big help though, he really made me feel better.”
“Good to hear.”
“Have you told him about your feelings yet?”, Kimberly jumped into a different subject.
Jason had a pained look on his face, “If I did, do you think that I wouldn’t have told you?”
“True.”, the two walked down the hallway, talking about all their troubles and comforting each other. Things were getting a little bit better for Kimberly as she took it one day at a time.
Things weren’t getting better for Mo. As she was searching for Trini, she spotted Olivia and quickly averted her gaze, guilt filling her and her heart speeding up. The pain was back in her chest, the stress of the situation causing her heart to start racing as the rest of the band members herded around Olivia, protecting her from Mo. Turning on her heel, Mo walked down the opposite side of the hallway and spotted Trini at the end. She quickly walked over to her, tapping her shoulder when she got close enough and the smaller girl turned around, frowning when she saw who it was.
“What do you want, Mo?”, Trini snarled, her eyes boring into Mo’s.
Mo took a shaky breath, reaching into her bag and handing Trini her beanie, “You left this at my house the other night. Be more careful next time.”
Trini snatched it from her hand, throwing the beanie in her locker before slamming the door, “There won’t be a next time.” She then walked away, leaving Mo to try and calm herself down, her chest feeling like it was being stabbed with a knife every second, he hand clutching at her chest as she tried not to fall over from the pain. A hand on her shoulder startled her and she turned around to see Billy standing there with a concerned frown on his face.
“Mo, are you ok? You are showing symptoms of severe chest pain which corresponds to a heart condition.”, Billy informed her, not that she didn’t already know. He looked around and spotted a janitor’s closet, turning back to Mo, “Come with me.” Placing an arm around her shoulders, he helped her to the closet, shutting the door behind him when they got inside. What he didn’t expect was for Mo to collapse to the ground, whimpering in pain as she clutched her chest, the pain increasing and her breaths becoming shorter. Billy pulled out his phone, sending Kimberly a quick text.
Kimberly, I’m with Mo in the janitor’s closet and she is having some really bad chest pains. You need to get here fast. She can’t breathe.
Kimberly responded immediately.
On my way. Hold her, it helps calm her down a little bit.
Putting his phone back in his pocket, Billy awkwardly walked around Mo, trying to figure out how he was going to hold her. He got down next to her, not wanting to move her, he just stroked her hair, until Kimberly busted through the door, Jason right behind him. Kimberly dropped down next to her sister, pulling her into her lap while Jason closed the door.
“It’s ok, you’re ok.”, Kimberly cooed softly, throwing Mo’s purse at Jason. He frowned at it until Kimberly spoke up, “Look in there and see if there are any pills. If there are, get two of them and grab my water bottle from my bag.” Jason nodded, searching through Mo’s bag, not finding any pills and looking back up at Kimberly with a panicked expression.
“There are no pills.”, Jason told her and Kimberly let out an annoyed sigh, Mo still whimpering in her lap.
“Check mine. I always keep some spare ones in there just in case.”, Kimberly pointed to her bag that was thrown across the floor before turning her attention back to her sister. Jason nods, looking through her bag, finding the pills at the bottom and pulling them out, grabbing her water bottle. Kimberly took the pills from Jason, shoving them down Mo’s throat and tilting her head up to drink the water. “Jesus, Mo. Stop scaring me like that.”, Kimberly gave her sister a wet chuckle as she hugged her, silently crying at the thought of losing her sister.
Mo was finally able to catch her breath, “Sorry, Kim. You know I don’t do it on purpose.” The two stood back up, Mo a little wobbly as she still felt weak.
Billy was the first one to speak up, “Do you have some sort of heart condition? I mean, that’s the only reason that I can think of as to why you had shortness of breath, tightening of the chest, and pain.” Kimberly looked at Mo, who actually seemed like she was ok with telling Billy.
“If you don’t mind telling us of course. You might have forgotten, but I witnessed this before and was wondering what was wrong. Kim wouldn’t tell me though.”, Jason informed her, giving her a comforting smile.
“It’s fine, guys. I think I can trust you. I have an enlarged heart and as I get older, it’s ability to pump blood decreases. It basically gets weaker.”, Mo explained, the boys nodding along.
“So do you have to get a heart transplant?”, Billy asked.
“At some point in the near future.”, Mo nodded.
“And stress doesn’t help it. Neither does drinking.”, Kimberly looked at her sister pointedly.
Mo shied away from her stare, “Yeah, yeah. I’m trying my best. Let’s just go to class, ok?” Jason and Billy stepped over for Mo to leave, staying with Kimberly.
Just as Kimberly was about to leave, Jason called her back, “Kim.” She turned around. “What happens if Mo doesn’t get the heart in time?”
I know, I know. I'm sorry for having Mo and Trini sleep together again, but remember, Rita was part of the reason that they slept together the second time. Don't hate me, more drama is yet to come! I know it wasn't the most eventful chapter, I'm sorry, but next chapter is when shit is going to start really happening. Question of the chapter: What do you think about Mo/Trini?
Thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys! <3
Chapter 13: Chapter 13
Trini's PTSD is acting up and Mo isn't doing ok.
“Fuck!”, Stella exclaimed as they finished the song. It just didn’t sound right without the bass, no matter how hard they tried. Charlie threw his sticks down on the ground, frustration taking over him and Wen put his head in his hands. Olivia was standing at the microphone, no expression on her face as she stared into the wall, her thoughts taking over. Mo. That was the only thing that she was about to think about this past week. She had only seen the girl once before everyone herded around her, protecting her from anymore hurt.
“Why are we even trying? It won’t sound good without the bass.”, Charlie yelled out, kicking one of the drums.
“We can make it work.”, Stella tried, but Wen scoffed.
“Give it up, Stella. Without Mo, we aren’t Lemonade Mouth.”, he walked out of the garage, grabbing his keys and leaving the house. Charlie followed him, leaving Stella and Olivia along, the blonde sitting down on one of the amps.
“He’s right.”, Olivia interrupted, looking down at the floor. “We aren’t Lemonade Mouth without Mo.”
“I’m sorry. I thought I was doing the right thing by kicking her out of the band, but I guess I was wrong.”, Stella sighed, taking her guitar off of her shoulders and setting it down in the case, turning back to Olivia. “She just hurt you so much.”
“I know, but this was something that really made her happy. Who are we to take it away from her?”
“I’m not letting her back into the band.”, Stella decision was final. She couldn’t risk Mo hurting Olivia.
“Ok. I’ll see you later, Stella.”, Olivia got up and made her way out of the house. Stella huffed, closing her guitar case. This just wasn’t working.
“Dodge it, Kimberly!”, Jason yelled at the pink ranger as she just narrowly avoided one of Billy’s fists. They had morphed, successfully, and were currently fighting. Zack and Trini were on the other side of the pit, fighting as well, but something seemed off about Trini. She had dark circles under her eyes and she was more jumpy than usual. Billy went for a spin kick, Kimberly rolling around it and punching him in the gut, mumbling that she was sorry. Jason’s clapping broke them out of their fighting trance, “Nice, Kim! Wonderful, Billy! Take a rest you two.” The two demorphed, sitting down on one of the ledges and watching Zack and Trini. At the moment, the two were at a stalemate, Trini blocking all of Zack’s attacks and Zack avoiding Trini’s. As they were fighting, Trini felt a cold grip on her shoulder, sharp nails dragging across her skin up to the scar on her neck and she freezes.
“So weak.”, Rita’s voice echoes through her head, the nails starting to dig into the scar. A shiver runs down Trini’s spine and she feels like she can’t move, paralyzed by fear. “Just wait, yellow. The weaker you get, the stronger I get.”, Trini was so in her own head that she didn’t see Zack’s fist coming towards her, a crack sounding through the pit as it connected with Trini’s jaw and the tiny girl went flying across the room, smacking into the wall. Her vision was blurred and everything sounded like it was under water, her head throbbing as they rushed towards her. The only thing that she felt were Rita’s claws digging into her neck once again, blood spilling out of the old wounds. Suddenly, her head was resting in someone’s lap and soft hands were combing through her hair. Her eyes focused and she looked up to see Kimberly with a worried expression on her face, cooing her softly.
Trini tried to move, but Jason immediately pushed her back down, “Don’t move, T. You hit your head pretty badly.” She just swatted everyone away, turning onto her side and jumping back onto her feet in a fighting stance. They were all just looking at her, concern etched all over their faces1 and Trini groaned in frustration.
“I’m fine, guys. Jesus.”, she threw her hands in the air.
“Trini, what happened back there?”, Zack asked, but Trini just scoffed at him.
“Nothing, I just got distracted.”
Kimberly stepped forward, “We just want to make sure that you’re ok, Trini.”
“Fuck off, Kim. Why do you care anyways?”, Trini crossed her arms over her chest, not really wanting an answer to that question.
“Despite what you think, I did fall in love with you.”, Kimberly argued, wanting Trini to know the truth.
“And when did you stop falling?”, Trini wasn’t backing down now.
“I still am.”, Kimberly watched as Trini’s mask slipped for a second before sliding back into place, the tiny girl glaring at her.
“Yeah right.”, she stalked off to her bag, plopping down next to it and taking out her water bottle. Kimberly was just about to walk over when her phone rang in her back pocket and she pulled it out to see that her mother had sent her a text.
Ice Cold Hart
Kimberly, we are coming to Angel Grove for a few hours to see you and your sister. Be there in twenty minutes so have the house ready! Kisses!
“Well, shit.”, Kimberly groaned before seeing that Mo had called her and she started panicking. What if Mo was having an episode again? Did she run out of meds? Checking the voicemail, Kimberly felt anger boiling at the pit of her stomach as she heard her sister slurring her words, obviously drunk.
“Hey, Kimmy! Did you get the text from mother? She’s coming home with papa for a few hours to see us. How hilarious is that? Also we’re out of wine, so if you could grab some at the store that would be great. Love you!”
“Dammit, Mo.”, Kimberly pocketed her phone, turning to the rest of the team. “I have to go. Mo is drunk again and our parents are coming home for a little visit.” Jason and Billy nodding, bidding her goodbye while Zack just sat down next to Trini, glaring at the taller girl. Kimberly rushed out of the pit, waving at Alpha 5 before leaping through the water. With her super speed, she was able to get home a few minutes before her parents were supposed to be there. As she walked through the house, she searched for Mo and found her passed out on the sofa, a bottle of wine in her hand. “You are such a mess, Mohini Hart.”, Kimberly grumbled, picking up her sister and carrying her up to her room. When she came back downstairs, she grabbed the wine bottle from the floor, but what she didn’t hear was the front door unlocking and her parents stepping through.
“Hello, darl….Kimberly Ann Hart, what are you doing with a bottle of wine?!”, her mother scolded her, rushing over and snatching it out of her daughter’s hand. “You drank all of my wine?!”
“Um….”, she really didn’t know how to respond. Her parents could probably tell that she wasn’t drunk, but saying that she did would save her sister, so, “Yeah.”
Mrs. Hart slapped her on the back of the head, “Thank god for your sister!”
“Where is Mohini?”, Mr. Hart stepped forward and Kimberly froze up. Shit.
“Uh, she had another episode today, so she is sleeping it off.”, Kimberly tried to sound convincing, holding her breath as she waited for their response.
“We really need to see about getting her that new heart.”, Mrs. Hart mumbled to herself, dropping the wine bottle in the trash, turning back around to face Kimberly. “So, how are your academics?”
Kimberly rolled her eyes, “Same 4.0 GPA as last time and maybe if you didn’t put so much pressure on Mo then she wouldn’t have as many episodes.”
“Please, Mohini puts pressure on herself. Is she still dating that girl?”, Mrs. Hart scoffed when she said ‘that girl’ and it nearly made Kimberly snap her neck. She didn’t care about Mo’s happiness, she only cared about her business and having a perfect daughter. Both of her parents only cared about what happened to Mo, academically, and pretty much left Kimberly in the dust.
“Mo doesn’t put pressure on herself! She pretty much has the weight of the world on her shoulders and you guys put it there. Oh and Olivia dumped her just like you guys wanted. Except it has destroyed Mo, but you guys don’t care. You just want your perfect Indian daughter.”, Kimberly didn’t wait for their response, stomping up the stairs and going into her own room. Her parents just stood there, shocked at Kimberly’s outburst.
An hour later, Mo woke up with a throbbing headache, groaning as she sat up. Figuring that Kimberly was probably downstairs, Mo stumbled out of her room and walked down the stairs.
“Kim, do you have an aspri--”, Mo stopped when she saw her mother standing in the kitchen. “Mom.”
“Mohini, I heard about Olivia.”, Mrs. Hart walked towards her daughter, messing with her hair before speaking again, “I told you that she was no good.”
“Enough, Mother. Olivia broke up with me because I messed up, not her.”, Mo made sure to clarify.
Her father’s voice sounded through the kitchen before she could get out another word, “Mohini, come in here for a second.” Her heart sped up, the dull pain starting as Mo walked towards the living room where her father sat, newspaper in hand. When he looked over the top of the paper, he had a serious look on his face and he folded it up, placing it next to another paper that Mo vaguely recognized. As she walked closer, she realized what it was. “What is this?”, Mr. Hart held out the test for Mo to see, the girl quickly looking to the floor.
“My english test.”, Mo could feel her chest starting to tighten and took a deep breath.
“And what did you get on it?”, Mr. Hart still had the paper in his hand.
“B-.”, Mo waited and waited until she heard him stand up. He walked over to her, the test in his hand and he shoved it in Mo’s face.
“This is unacceptable. Anything less than and A will not be tolerated in this house. This is what happens when you get distracted by girls or boys. You better work your ass off to get this grade back up to an A.”, He then slapped the paper down on the table, walking away with her mother. The two grabbed their bags and walked out of the house, slamming the door behind them.
After a few beats of silence, “Alcohol. I need alcohol.” Mo searched through the house, finding a bottle of gin in the back cupboard and cracking it open, taking a huge gulp. The pain in her chest stayed, but Mo merely ignored it as she kept drinking.
Once Jason had decided that training was over, Trini had been hesitant to go home, the dents in her walls haunting her. As she was walking on the cliff, a flash of green and gold crossed her eyes and Trini felt panicked. Then, Rita was standing in front of her, golden teeth flashing in the moonlight as she smirked down at the shorter girl.
“Well, that was boring.”, Rita was picking at her nails, Trini’s blood still stained on them. “Say, how about we go to that girl’s house. You know, the one that looks like your dear Kimberly?”, Rita knew she struck a nerve and grinned as Trini ducked her head down, not proud of her actions.
“No.”, Trini resisted, stepping around the woman, but Rita had other plans. Grabbing Trini by the throat, she slammed the tiny girl into a tree, the wood splinting with the amount of force that the girl was thrown.
“If you don’t, I’ll make sure to kill her first.”, Rita threatened, her eyes glowing green as she did.
Trini felt fear course through her at the thought of how devastated Kimberly would be if she lost her sister. She swallowed the lump forming in her throat, “Fine, but nothing is going to happen.”
“Keep telling yourself that, yellow, but if I take control, many things are going to happen.”, Rita cackled, letting her go and vanishing back into the darkest parts of Trini’s mind. Sighing, Trini made her way to the Hart household, Rita still laughing in the back of her head. When she arrived, she knocked on the door, hoping that Mo would be the one to answer. For once, Trini got her wish and Mo answered the door, bottle of alcohol in hand.
“I thought there wasn’t going to be a next time?”, Mo questioned with a bit of venom in her voice, tilting her head back and taking another sip of the bottle.
Trini grabbed the bottle, walking into the house and muttering under her breath, “Things change.” Mo shrugged, closing the door and walked over to the couch, sitting down. After a few minutes of silence, Trini noticed that Mo had a certain look on her face that she somewhat recognized. Hanging the bottle over, she got the girl to look at her, “What’s wrong?”
“Don’t humor me, Trini. I know that you don’t care.”, Mo snatched the bottle back. “We’re just fuck buddies after all. Once you make up with Kim and I make up with Olivia, we are never going to speak of this again. Then the world will be in its rightful place.”, Mo waved her arms in the air before taking another sip of the bottle. Trini didn’t even try to say anything after that as the two continued drinking and as they did, Trini’s control slipped away to Rita. Drinking became kissing and Trini once again was carrying Mo upstairs. What both of them forgot was that Kimberly was in her room and would end up hearing a lot more than she wanted.
Another nightmare. Trini woke up again, covered in sweat and shaking, from a nightmare. Her arms were previously wrapped around Mo, the girl was fast asleep, drool dripping out of her mouth onto the pillow. The smaller girl ran a hand through her hair, trying to catch her breath as she got out of the bed, slipping her clothes on. Did she feel bad about sleeping with Mo? Of course, especially since she was in love with Kimberly, but Mo had said that she didn’t have any interest in Trini, only Olivia. As she finished putting her clothes on, Trini realized that she couldn’t hear Rita, making her think that maybe it was just her PTSD acting up again. Then, she heard the cackle and whipped around to see Rita floating above Mo, her gold fingernails running through her long hair as she pet her like an animal. Mo stirred a little bit, discomfort showing on her face, but she stayed in her sleep. Trini just prayed to whoever that Rita wouldn’t hurt her and immediately, the woman backed away, cackling at Trini’s fear. Every part of her wanted to go into Kimberly’s room and make sure that Rita wasn’t hurting Kimberly, but something stopped her. Was it anger? Hurt? Betrayal? No. It was the fear that she would actually walk in on Rita hurting Kimberly and she would be able to do nothing. In the end, Trini decided to just take the chance, walking away from the window and out of Mo’s room. Across the hall, Trini saw the K that was on the door and pushed it open, peeking inside to see Kimberly lying on her bed, asleep.
“Fuck it.”, Trini whispered, walking into Kimberly’s room and shutting the door behind her. She walked over to the bed, sitting down on it, but jumping back up when the girl stirred. Kimberly turned over so that she was facing Trini, her eyes still closed. Smiling, Trini ran a finger along the girl’s jaw line, her smile getting even bigger when Kimberly let out a content sigh. Even though they had only dated for a couple months, Trini had learned almost everything about Kimberly. She knew that Kimberly loved it when you massaged her scalp, but hated when you braided her hair. She knew that Kimberly loved shrimp, but hated any other type of seafood. What she didn’t know was if Kimberly had learned anything about Trini. After a few minutes, Trini felt like Kimberly was safe and got up to leave when she turned back around. Looking at the girl, she leaned down and pressed a kiss to her forehead, watching as Kimberly smiled in her sleep. The tiny girl then went to the window, jumping out and leaving the Hart twins alone. Kimberly opened her eyes, smiling to herself before falling back asleep.
If someone had told Mo that she would die at age 17, she would have laughed her head off. Ever since her breakup with Olivia, the girl had been under tremendous stress which hadn’t helped her condition. Whenever Mo would get close to the blonde, her ex friends would just circle around her, blocking Mo from seeing her. It wasn’t like things were any better between her and Trini, considering they had sleep together about 4 times and she sure as hell wasn’t proud of it. She could have sworn that last night she felt someone running their fingers through her hair, but when she opened her eyes, no one was there. Not even Trini. Shaking her head, Mo just made her way to class, ignoring the glares that she got from Stella and Zack as she made her way to the back of the room. When Mo sat in her chair, the teacher walked in a second later.
“Good morning, delinquents.”, he greeted them as he usually did. “Everyone clear your desk of everything, but a pencil. You will have the entire class to complete the test and when you are done, turn it it at the back of the room.”, he pointed to the open manilla folder sitting on the back table. Mo heard the words test and froze, fear striking through her. There was a test today? She always studied for tests and there was reminders in her phone for every test of the year, so how could she have forgotten? The papers were passed back and Mo felt pain stab through her chest, wincing as she leaned forward to stop the pain. “You may start now.”, the teacher announced, sitting down at his desk and putting in his headphones. As she looked down at the test, her vision began to blur and the pain in her chest became worse. Just as she thought she was going to have to go to the nurse, her father’s voice rang through her head and she straightened herself up, the pain still radiating through her chest. If she just finished the test, then she could go home and sleep it off.
It seemed like hours before Mo finally finished her test, even though she knew that she failed. The bell rang and she grabbed her bag, sprinting out of the room, but Trini stepped in front of her. She had a look on her face that scared Mo, but what scared her even more was when she saw Olivia at the end of the hallway, watching the two of them with jealousy in her eyes.
“Mo, we need to talk.”, Trini whispered so quietly that Mo almost hadn’t heard her.
“Um, what’s there to talk about?”, Mo said each word slowly, trying not to give away that she was in pain.
Trini frowned, rolling her eyes in annoyance, “What do you think, asshole?”
“Look, Trini, I would love to talk, but I really don’t have time….”, Mo had to stop, catch her breath, and then continue, “For this. I’ll see you later.” She pushed past the tiny girl, hoping to make it to the front door, but the bell for the next class rang. Groaning, Mo made her way to her next class, hoping that the pain would die down. Unfortunately for her, the next class would cause her more stress than she bargained for. Sitting down, Mo sighed, placing a hand on her chest and taking a few deep breaths before focusing back on the teacher.
“Alright, Mo and Wen, you two are partnered together.”, the teacher pointing at the two, Amanda turning around and smirking at Mo. Another stab of pain. Wen moved over to sit next to Mo, not saying a word and beginning the assignment.
“What do you need me to do?”, Mo asked, looking at the directions and trying to keep her mind off of the pain.
Wen scoffed, “Sit there and shut up.” More pain and Mo leaned forward, hand grabbing at her chest as it became difficult to breathe. “Woah, hey.”, Wen gripped her shoulder. “Mo, I-I’m sorry. Are you ok?” She couldn’t speak. She couldn’t breathe. Everything blurred together, but Mo shook her head.
“I’m fine. I just need to, um….”, Mo jumped out of the chair, stumbling to the door and running out of the room, Wen and the teacher calling for her to come back. She didn’t hear them. She couldn’t hear anything. Her heart felt like it was on fire as she made her way out of the school, no one in the front office stopping her. The girl needed to get home, so she ran as best she could in her wedges, stopping a couple times to catch her breath. Making it back to her house, she burst through the entrance just as everything began spinning. Sweat covered her forehead, her face pale as a ghost while she stumbled through the house, confusion filling her mind as she had no idea where she was. Mo’s heart was beating frantically and each beat hurt her. Dots were seeping into her vision and as Mo tried to scream out from the pain, she lost consciousness. Her heart finally slowed and in a few minutes it would stop beating altogether.
The bell rang for lunchtime and Trini was relieved. This was possibly the most boring class in the world. She was walking out of the classroom, bag slung over her shoulder when Amanda and her cronies stepped in front, blocking her path. Trini tried moving around them, but one moved in front of her and eventually, they were all circled around her. Soon, the hallway was empty and it was just Trini with the cheerleaders.
Amanda was the first to step forward, shoving Trini back into the lockers, “Hey, it’s Trini Gaymez, guys. Kimmy’s little girlfriend.”
“Amanda.”, Trini snarled at the blonde, earning a laugh from her and a hand ruffling her hair.
“Isn’t she just the cutest thing? But, what would Kimmy think if she knew that you were sleeping with her twin sister?!”, Amanda fake gasped, the rest of the cheerleader mummering to each other as Trini’s eyes widened with fear. “That’s right, I heard your little conversation with Mo today. I also saw her hand you your beanie back saying quote “Be more careful next time.” How stupid are you two? Doing that right in the open where anyone could hear.”, Amanda sneered at the tiny girl. The blonde started messing with Trini’s hair, flipping it over her shoulder to get a full view of the scar on Trini’s neck. It was red and puffy, Rita had reopened the wound which was causing it to look new. Trini bit the inside of her cheek, resisting snapping Amanda’s wrist for touching her. “What’s this? A little something from your last night with Mo?”, Amanda cackled and Trini froze. It sounded just like Rita.
Her PTSD decided that this would be a wonderful time to make an appearance as Trini noticed Rita standing behind Amanda, laughing along with the cheerleaders. She shrunk into herself, whimpering as the cheerleaders all leaned forward to see the mark on Trini’s neck.
“Get away from her.”, a familiar soft voice growled from a few feet away. They all turned, except Trini, to see Kimberly standing there, fists clenched at her side. She stalked toward Amanda, the other cheerleaders immediately making a path for the taller girl.
“Hey, bitch.”, Amanda crossed her arms over her chest, Trini still shaking against the lockers.
“Leave Trini alone. Your problem is with me not her.”
“I don’t have to do anything that you say, Kimmy.”
Kimberly smirked, “I would advise that you do what I say or else this won’t end well for you.” Out of the corner of her eye, Kimberly could see that Trini had sat down on the ground with her knees pulled up to her chest, eyes closed as she was rocking herself back and forth. Amanda’s next words made Kimberly see red.
“You do know that she’s a little whore right?”, a hand slapped Amanda across the face and the blonde stumbled back. “I am so going to get you back for this.”, the girl ran off in the direction of the principal’s office. Kimberly ran to Trini’s side, taking the smaller girl into her arms and cooing her softly. She slowly felt Trini relax into her and they just sat there until she felt the girl stiffen. Trini jumped up, a stony expression on her face as she stared down at Kimberly.
“Thanks.”, was the only thing that Trini mumbled to the taller girl before she hightailed it out of the school. In the back of her mind, she could hear Rita’s voice.
“Let’s go, yellow. It’ll make you feel better.”, Rita encouraged, Trini nodding along with her. She made her way to the Hart household, hearing from Wen that Mo had abruptly left school. What Trini found was something that would change everything. Walking up the sidewalk, she noticed that the front door of the house was still open. Trini immediately feared that someone had broken in and rushed into the house, knowing that her ranger powers would help her. The girl dropped her bag at the entrance, walking around the house in a fighting stance until she saw it. Mo lying on the floor. Her heart not beating.
So I know that these past few chapter have been a lot of Mo, but it has been plot development, so the next few chapters will focus on Trini and Olivia more. Mo will of course be a big part, considering she just passed out, but I will do my best to focus on the other two girls also. Question of the day: Was it Mo's heart condition or Rita?
Thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys! <3
Chapter 14: Chapter 14
She's so gone.
As always feel free to let me know what you want to happen next and leave feedback. Enjoy!
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
Olivia’s life had changed a lot since she had broken up with Mo. For one, she wasn’t as happy and didn’t feel complete. She would fall asleep, crying and holding her phone with a picture of her and Mo on the screen. It would hurt her even more when she would see Mo, the other girl looking just as miserable. Her friends would always herd around her, for some reason, and her view of Mo was cut off. No matter how hard she tried to, she couldn’t hate Mo even though what she did had hurt her so much.
Trini was also in the same boat as she was, but seemed to be coping with it a lot better than she was, little did she know that she was absolutely wrong with that assumption. Charlie had really been her saving grace when it came to being there for her. She had never really been close with him, but he was there for her in her time of need. When they had first started the band, Olivia saw the way that he looked at Mo, but at the time she was with Scott.
They would later learn that he was cheating on Mo the whole time and besides Olivia, Charlie was the one who was angriest. He had admitted his feelings to Mo, Kimberly had told Olivia that she saw the whole thing, and he stormed off when Mo told him that they were just friends. That was when Mo got really sick. It was also when Olivia lost her voice. The two had made up after Rising Star, making the band whole again. Up until Mo broke Olivia’s heart by admitting that she asked her out to get back at her twin sister.
The blonde had thought countless times that maybe she should have just asked Kimberly out. Both of the twins were very attractive, no question about it, but Trini always had feeling for the girl. She never wanted to destroy her best friend like that. Besides, Mo was always more attractive, personality wise, to Olivia than Kimberly.
It was only now that Olivia got to see their true colors and it ended up being in the worst way possible. Olivia’s heart was broken, but she still loved Mo. She would always love her no matter what she did.
Today was just like any other day for Olivia. She had gotten up, gotten dressed, eaten breakfast, and biked to school. Only, there was something off about today, she could feel it in her heart. As she put her bike on the rack, she felt like a piece of herself was slowly draining away, like it was dying. Shaking it off, Olivia went to her normal classes and ignored the nagging in the back of her head to check on Mo.
Her next class began and she sat down, focusing on her work until she heard the clapping of what sounded like someone’s heels running down the hallway. A flash of blackish brown hair was all that Olivia saw before it was gone.
Through the rest of the day, Olivia sat and thought about what she saw. It couldn’t have been Kimberly because her hair was shorter, that only let one other person. Someone who only wore floral dresses and wedges everyday. She was snapped back into reality when she heard Mo’s name mentioned.
“Yeah, I just don’t know what happened.”, Wen’s voice filled Olivia’s ears as she tuned into the conversation. “One minute she was fine and the next she was sprinting out of the classroom. She seemed like she was in a lot of pain.”, Wen stuffed more of his sandwich into her mouth, the rest of the band taking in his words.
“I wonder what’s wrong?”, Stella mumbled, concern lacing through her voice. “Wen, remember when we were talking to her that one time and she seemed to be having trouble breathing?”
Setting his sandwich down, the red haired boy nodded, “She was wincing and clutching her chest.” On the other side of the lunchroom, Olivia spotted Kimberly walking through the doors, running a hand through her hair as she made her way over to where Jason and Billy were sitting.
“Why don’t you ask Kimberly?”, Olivia added on, looking down at her salad when her friends all turned to her. When she brought her gaze back up, she shrugged at them, “I mean, she’s her sister, so she would know if something was wrong.”
“I’ll do it.”, Charlie stood up, not giving them any time to stop him as he walked over to Kimberly. They all watched from afar as Kimberly spoke with Charlie, the conversation a seemingly calm one until they saw something change in Kimberly’s demeanor. Her face changed to that of worry and her body language showed that she was ready to run. The two nodded at each other before Charlie walked back over, Kimberly turning back around.
The boy sat down at his seat, going back to eating while the rest looked at him, waiting for an answer.
Stella finally punched him in the arm, causing him to look up, “So?”
“She said that Mo sometimes get’s stress cramps. It’s really nothing to worry about.”, Charlie answered, but Olivia didn’t believe it. If Mo had stress cramps then Olivia would have seen some sign of them while they were dating, even if it wasn’t for real. Just as she was about to say something, she was cut off by the bell ringing and everyone making their way out of the lunchroom. Olivia sighed, picking up her things and walking to her next class.
The rest of her day went on as usual, a strange feeling filling her when she didn’t see Kimberly exiting the school. She had waited by her bike until the last few kids walked out, but the girl was nowhere to be seen. Trini wasn’t there either. Sighing, Olivia hopped onto her bike, going home while trying not to think about Mo or Kimberly. As she walked inside her house, she greeted her grandmother and quickly made her way up the stairs to her room.
It seemed like Olivia had been trying to work on her homework for years, in reality it was only a few hours, but the Hart twins were still occupying her every thought. Her phone rang and Olivia picked it up to see that Trini was calling her. She answered the call, listening to each word that the girl was saying. Tears filled Olivia’s eyes as she kept listening, Trini’s voice trying to ease the heartbreak, but it wasn’t helping. When the girl hung up, the phone fell to the floor and Olivia fell with it. The whole time, she could feel it. She could feel the life draining out of the girl, but she refused to go check on her. Refused to go and even say a word to her. Why didn’t she just forgive her? It was too late now. There was nothing that Olivia could do. As she cried on the floor, Olivia realized that there was one person she would never be able to forgive. Herself.
Kimberly knew that something was wrong when she was sitting in biology. Trini was ignoring her, as she usually did, when this strange feeling washed over her. It was almost like her heart was slowly breaking, like it did when she told Trini, except it was more extreme. A part of her was breaking. Something very close to her. She felt her anxiety spike, Trini shivering when she felt the feelings coming from Kimberly, looking up to see the taller girl with a worried expression on her face. As everyone exited the classroom, Kimberly followed Trini from a distance, planning to talk to her when Amanda stepped forward. It was show time.
That definitely didn’t go as Kimberly had planned. Walking into the lunchroom, she ran a hand through her hair, the past few minutes really taking a toll on her. Kimberly sat down, beginning to talk with Jason and Billy when she felt a tap on her shoulder. When she looked up, she was surprised to see Charlie standing there, no emotion on his face as he asked her about Mo. She listened as he mentioned what Wen had seen and her face immediately paled, her body wanting to sprint home and make sure that her sister was ok.
After she answered all of his questions, Kimberly turned back around and returned to her conversation with the two boys. That was when she felt it. An undeniable feeling of emptiness as she sat there, wondering if it was coming from one of the rangers. Panic filled her soon after that and it screamed yellow. They all knew that it was Trini, but none of them wanted to get involved, knowing that Trini would probably yell at them to go away. Kimberly went on with the rest of her day, ignoring the feeling in her heart as she worked.
Her whole world came crashing down when her phone rang in the middle of class, everyone turning to look at her. She flushed red as she pulled out her phone, intent on stopping the ringing, but when she saw Trini’s name flash across the screen, she answered.
Instead of sitting in the classroom where everyone was watching her, she walked into the hallway, leaning against the lockers as she tried to make sense of what the girl was saying. Telling Trini to calm down, Kimberly waited, listening to Trini take a few deep breaths. In the background, Kimberly heard rushing footsteps and what sounded like people running around. A voice announced for a doctor to come to a certain room and Kimberly knew that Trini was at the hospital. Then, Trini was talking again, but this time, she was telling Kimberly not to freak out.
The words were like shards of glass piercing through her body. A shaky hand was brought up to her mouth as Kimberly tried to keep herself from screaming. Sadness filled her and she could already feel the presence of Jason nearing her. Her sight began to blur as tears filled her eyes, but she was able to see when a flash of red appeared. Jason was standing in front of her, hands on her shoulders as he tried to keep the taller from falling.
Without warning, Kimberly collapsed into Jason’s arms, sobbing her heart out while the phone was held limply in her hand. The boy held her, grabbing the phone to speak with Trini and finding out the news.
He picked Kimberly up bridal style, carrying her out of the school and to his truck. They made their way to the hospital, Kimberly not moving and just barely breathing. Why did she just ignore the signs? Was there anything that she could have done?
Pulling up to the hospital, Kimberly jumped out of the car, ignoring Jason’s calls for her to come back. She ran into the hospital, searching around for her friend clad in yellow. Walking a little further in, Kimberly saw Trini sitting in the back corner, her eyes red while tears still went down her cheeks.
When she saw Kimberly, she stood up getting ready to say something, but the look on her face was the only thing that Kimberly needed to finally break down. All she remembers is falling forward and Trini catching her as she cried as loudly as she could. The worst part was, there was nothing that Kimberly could do. The one person who had alway been there for her and would always be there for her, wasn’t there. It wasn’t the same when her friends hugged her as when she did. Nothing would ever be the same. Kimberly finally did what she had been wanting to since this morning. She screamed.
Kimberly had long since fallen asleep, Trini staring down at the girl who was in her lap. As she stared, Trini felt herself flashback to when she found Mo lying on the floor, no heartbeat. In a panic, Trini tried lightly slapping the girl, hoping that it she had just hit her head, but when she didn’t wake up, Trini called 911. They had told her to start CPR and continuing doing it until the paramedics got there. Setting the phone down, Trini had done her best to get the girl’s heart started back up. She couldn’t die. If she died, then Kimberly would be so heartbroken. A voice tickled at the back of Trini’s head, but Trini didn’t stop the compressions. Rita taunted her, told her that it was all her fault this happened.
Tears filled Trini’s eyes as she kept trying to get Mo back. The girl was too young to die, especially because of Rita. As that thought ran through her head, Rita cackled, obviously proud of her handywork. She pressed her ear to Mo’s chest, listening for a heartbeat when she heard a faint:
Sighing, Trini tried waking up the girl, but her eyes remained shut. At least her heart was beating. Two gentlemen called into the house, Trini calling back for them to get in there as fast as they could. They walked in, moving Trini over as they went to work on the girl lying on the floor. Rita’s voice got louder as Trini watched them load her friend onto the stretcher. She didn’t even notice when one of the men was talking to her, asking if she wanted to get in the ambulance with them. Numbly, Trini nodded her head and followed behind the men, the two wheeling Mo out of her own house.
As they got into the car, Trini was asked what she was like when she found her and if she had any illnesses. Before Trini could answer, Mo was crashing. The monitor next to them dropped progressively before it was just a flatline, staring back a Trini.
The men abandoned Trini, leaving her to take care of Mo. Both of them whispering things amongst themselves, one starting CPR. When the ambulance stopped, Trini didn’t even recognize that they were there until a nurse came rushing into the back, asking her if she had any injuries.
Trini shook her head, the nurse leading her out of the ambulance. They walked behind the stretcher, nurses gathering around the girl while the paramedic continued CPR. As they were walking, Trini felt the nurse steer her towards the waiting room, sitting her down in a chair. Her lips were moving, but Trini couldn’t hear anything, her body still in shock. Everything around her was a blur. People rushing around, nurses asking a certain doctor to be at a certain place.
She felt herself come back to her body, the nurse still crouching in front of her. Trini told her that she was fine and the nurse nodded, telling her that they would be asking her more questions when they knew more. The girl accepted that, watching as the nurse walked away from her and she pulled out her phone. Dialing Kimberly’s number, Trini held the phone up to her ear, hoping that Kimberly would just answer even if she was in class. When the soft voice came through, everything rushed out of the girl so fast that she couldn’t even understand herself.
Kimberly told her to take a few deep breaths, doing just as she said and then using Kimberly’s own words against her. Through the phone, Trini could hear Kimberly’s panic as she informed her of what was going on. Silence. It was silent for a few minutes until Jason’s voice came through the phone and Trini had to reluctantly tell him.
Sobs could be heard through the speaker, breaking Trini’s heart. Jason told her that they would be there soon and to just remain calm. There was only a certain amount of calm that Trini was able to be. When he hung up, Trini pocketed her phone and walked around. Walking up and down the hallways was the only thing keeping Trini sane. As she was passing the hallway that Mo went down, Trini heard it. The words that she dreaded hearing since she was nine and her grandmother had died right in front of her. Time of death .
Numbers were spoken after that as defeated nurses walked out of a room, some angrily throwing out their gloves and hats. Trini couldn’t stand there anymore, so she walked back to the waiting room, breaking down until Kimberly walked in. She stood up immediately, staring at the taller girl and rushing forward when she fell. Trini didn’t let her hold up, not even when the girl in her arms starting letting out heart wrenching screams.
Once Kimberly had passed out, Jason walked back out to park his truck which was still at the entrance of the hospital. The smaller girl picked up Kimberly, carrying her over to where she was previously sitting and holding the girl in her lap. It was only when Trini saw Jason again, that she realized she needed to call one more person. She pulled out her phone again, dialing her best friend, her finger hovering over the call button. When she finally pressed it, the phone was at her ear as it rang.
There were four rings before Olivia’s voice came through the speaker and Trini choked down the lump in her throat, going through the same process that she did with Kimberly. As they kept talking, Olivia began getting more worried until Trini finally said it. The girl didn’t say much after that, Trini just telling her to get there before she hung up. Jason was sitting next to Trini, his phone in his hand as he informed his parents of where he was and what was going on. It made Trini wonder if he had told Zack and Billy or even Mo’s old friends.
Mo’s friends. They had abandoned her for a mistake that she made. She would never do that to anyone, even though she had been freezing out Kimberly, she would have never wanted their friends to just leave Kimberly in the dust. Thank god for Billy. He knew that Kimberly had messed up and even if Trini wasn’t ready to forgive the girl, Billy wasn’t going to leave either of them. Zack hadn’t talked to Kimberly since training, but Jason had talked to her. Jason and Billy had gotten both sides of the story, Zack only caring about one side. It was comforting for Trini to know that Kimberly had someone, no matter how mad she was she didn’t what her to be alone. That was why Trini couldn’t believe it when all of Mo’s friends just abandoned her.
The girl in her lap stirred, bringing Trini out of her thoughts, but Kimberly kept her eyes closed. Jason looked at Trini, seeing that she was having an internal struggle and placed a hand on her shoulder. They smiled at each other before he told her that he had texted Billy and Zack, Billy was on his way while Zack gave no reply. Doctors whizzed by, every time Trini would perk up with hope that one of them was coming to give them news. None of them did. The three of them sat there, hope being the only thing that they could cling on to even though Trini knew that there was none left for Mo. She was gone.
So, this chapter had me in tears while I was writing it, that might have just been me but idk. This was a very sad chapter as we sort of found out what happened to Mo. We also got a little more insight into Olivia's head. Next chapter might not be as bad.
Question of the chapter: Is Mo alive or dead?
Thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys! <3
Chapter 15: Chapter 15
Mo's fate is revealed. Kimberly makes a deal without realizing what it means.
It seemed like years. Years of them just sitting there and waiting for the doctor. Kimberly had woken up when Billy arrived and she hadn’t said a word since. She had made her way out of Trini’s lap, sitting at the other side of the room, away from everyone as she tried to process everything that was happening. Trini found Mo on the floor, not breathing. The girl had gotten her breathing again only for her to end up dying. They were just sitting there, waiting for the doctors to come out and say the words that Kimberly had never wanted to hear. Without Mo here, Kimberly felt like a part of her died with her twin. There was nothing ok with this situation and she felt her heart jump into her throat when Olivia walked through the door, her face showing nothing but grief. Kimberly was the first to stand up, quietly walking over to the blonde. The two stared at each other until Olivia wrapped her arms around Kimberly. When they broke apart, Olivia walked over to the rest of them, hugging each of them while Kimberly just stood there. Eventually, she walked over and sat back down in the chair that she had moved to.
Ten minutes later, a doctor came out from one of the hallways, a clipboard in his hand as he made his way to the waiting room.
“Mohini Hart?”, he spoke out and Kimberly jumped to her feet, everyone else jumping up with her. They stood back as Kimberly went up to the doctor, wrapping her arms around herself before he started talking, “I’m guessing that you’re her twin sister.”
“Yes, sir.”, Kimberly answers, her throat scratchy from the screaming. “Is my sister alive?”
“Yes, but barely.”, the doctor tells her and she nearly collapses with relief. Mo wasn’t dead. She was ok. “It looks like she had a heart attack, probably due to stress. Her heart is just barely able to pump on it’s own. She needs that heart transplant in a few hours or else she will die.”
“She’s already on the waiting list.”, Kimberly informed him, the doctor nodding before putting the clipboard at his side and staring right at the girl in front of him.
“I looked at her records and her last check up with the doctor showed that her heart was in moderate condition. He even wrote that she wouldn’t need the heart transplant for at least a year. Now, she is in there and her heart is barely able to pump.”, he states, seeing the heartbroken look on Kimberly’s face he skips to the point. “I need you to be honest with me. Does Mohini drink?”
Kimberly felt like she was at a crossroad. If she said yes, then she would be ratting out her sister, but if she said no then the doctors wouldn’t be able to fix her. Looking behind her, she saw her friends sitting there, staring at her with nothing but hope. She made up her mind in that moment, “Yes, she does. She also has a lot of stress from school, our parents, and her relationships.”
“While I understand the stress, the drinking definitely didn’t help it. If this had happened just because of stress, she wouldn’t have crashed two times when she got in here. The alcohol definitely put more stress on her heart which probably contributed largely to her heart attack.”, the doctor knew that the girl was underaged, but that didn’t stop her from drinking.
“Will you be able to get the heart in time?”, Kimberly was only concerned with if her sister was going to live to see tomorrow or not.
The doctor’s expression dropped, his face showing the sadness that Kimberly was sure he was feeling, “It depends. We have contacted every hospital within an hour of here and none of them have a heart that hasn’t already been claimed. All we can do is pray that we get one here in time.”
“Can I see her?”, Kimberly’s voice broke as she spoke, her hands wringing together nervously.
“Of course. If her friends want to visit her then they will have to go one at a time.”, he pointed to the teenagers all standing in the waiting room. “This way.”, he began to lead her away when Kimberly stopped him.
“I’m just gonna tell them that she’s ok and then I’ll go.”, Kimberly watched him nod, turning on her heel to walk back to her friends. As she neared them, she could feel her teammates anxiety hit the roof. They all looked at her when she stopped in front of them, waiting for her to start talking. “She’s ok.”, was the only thing that Kimberly could think to say. Trini let out a sigh of relief, Olivia smiled while Jason and Billy wiped the tears from their eyes.
“What happened?”, Trini was the first one to ask, wanting to know since she found her.
“She had a heart attack. A major one. The doctor said that her heart is barely able to pump on it’s own.”, Kimberly saw the confused looks on Olivia and Trini’s faces when she said the words ‘heart attack’. “Billy, can you explain everything to them because I have to go see Mo.”, Kimberly asked him, the boy nodding as Kimberly walked away, the doctor still standing where he was.
“Ready?”, he held an arm out in the direction of the hallway. Kimberly nodded, following him through the twists and turns, nurses passing by with patients or rushing to another room. They walked and walked, the white walls staying the same all the way to Mo’s room. Finally, he stopped in front of a dark blue door, M. Hart written on the label that was stuck to the plaque holder outside her room. Before she went in, the doctor held out a hand for her to shake, a small smile on his lips, “I’m Dr. Oliver.”
“Kimberly.”, she shook his hand, eagerly holding the doorknob to her sister’s room with her other hand.
“I just wanted to say that we are doing everything that we can to save your sister.”, Dr. Oliver smiled at her.
“Thank you.”, Kimberly gave him a smile back, walking into the room. Closing the door behind her, Kimberly took a deep breath before turning around. A lump formed in her as she saw her sister, lying there on the bed. Tubes were sticking out of her, wires going every which way as a machine assisted her heart. The monitor on the right side of her was beeping at an irregular rate, breaking Kimberly’s heart as it all suddenly hit her. Her sister could die if she didn’t get the heart in time, even though she already thought that she was dead based on the call with Trini. Mo’s chest rose up and down, but she didn’t look alive. She didn’t look like Mo.
The girl trudged her way over to her sister, taking a seat in the chair right beside her bed. Mo’s forehead was sweaty, dark circles were under her eyes, and her hair looked greasy. If she were awake then she would demand Kimberly to fix it. Just thinking of that made Kimberly chuckle, her lively sister that was in a band, something that Kimberly had never expected someone like Mo to do. Then again, Mo lived to surprise Kimberly. She grabbed her hand, feeling how cold it was immediately and making the tears start running again. Even though Mo wasn’t awake, Kimberly knew that she could hear her and began talking.
“Hey, Mo.”, Kimberly winced at how generic that sounded. “I know you think that I’m about to say I told you so….and you are absolutely right. I told you that drinking wasn’t a good idea and that it would just cause you more problems. Well, here we are and you definitely have more problems.”, Kimberly fiddled with the blanket draped over her sister, not able to look at her anymore. “They are doing everything that they can, Mo. You just need to hold on until then. Please don’t die. I need you here. I mean, you’re my sister for fuck’s sake and I want you to be there for me for the rest of my life. I also want to be there for you. It’s ultimately your decision if you want to live or die, but please choose to live. For me.” Kimberly stood up, her hand still holding Mo’s as she brushed some of her sister’s hair out of her face.
Letting go of Mo’s hand, Kimberly walked out of the room and headed back down the hallway, planning on bringing her friends over. It seemed like forever until she made it to the waiting room, all of her friends sitting there with worried looks on their faces. Trini was rocking on her heels as she stood while Olivia looked exhausted, sitting in one of the chairs with her elbows on her knees and her eyes unfocused as she sat there. Jason and Billy were sitting next to each other, their hands intertwined. Walking further in, Kimberly was noticed by Trini first, as she always was the first person to notice the taller girl. She rushed over to her, fear completely overtaking her eyes as she stared at Kimberly.
“She’s fine, Trini. Well, as fine as she can be after having a heart attack.”, Kimberly smiled when she succeeded in making Trini chuckle a little.
Before Trini could ask anything, Olivia spoke up, “Are they gonna be able to find a heart for her?” Her eyes were still unfocused as she asked, the blonde obviously not really there.
“They are doing everything that they can to keep her alive until they get the heart.”, Kimberly tried reassuring her, but the girl just scoffed, turning her head away.
“Can we see her?”, Trini looked at Kimberly with those big brown eyes, and she couldn’t refuse. It wasn’t like she couldn’t, she just didn’t know if Mo was going to wake up or not. When she did, she was going to be confused and in a lot of pain. The taller girl could only manage to nod, grabbing Trini’s hand and leading her back to where Mo was. They walked in silence, not really knowing what to say if they did want to talk. Stopping at the door, Kimberly had to prepare herself again, it was going to be just as hard as the first time she walked in there. Her sister was lying helplessly on a bed, no sign of life even though she was alive. It seemed that Trini took notice of this, opening the door and walking in first. She wasn’t expecting what she saw, tears rushing to her eyes as soon as Mo came into her vision.
Kimberly walked up behind her, placing a hand on her shoulder, “She’s too stubborn to die. Especially if she looks like crap.” Trini couldn’t find it in herself to laugh, not with the scene that was in front of her. “God, if she was awake she would be demanding that we go home and get her makeup box.”, saying happy things really was helping Kimberly cope, it wasn’t doing that much for Trini.
“Did they say if she was going to wake up before the surgery?”, Trini’s voice was quiet, like she was barely able to get out the words.
“I don’t know, she might.”, Kimberly shrugged, walking over to the chair she was previously sitting in, dragging Trini over with her. Sitting down, she pulled the smaller girl into her lap, Trini not fighting it and burying her head in Kimberly’s neck. “I know that she’ll be ok. She has to be.”, Kimberly choked on those last words, trying not to think about what life would be like without her twin sister.
“Who’s older?”, Trini tried keeping Kimberly’s mind off of it.
“I am by four minutes.”, Kimberly would always joke with Mo when they were kids that because she was older, she got to tell her what to do. If it worked that way in real life, Mo would have stopped drinking and wouldn’t be here. Trini seemed to sense that Kimberly’s mind was going in all sorts of directions and decided to press a kiss to her neck, hoping that it would make her relax. It did the exact opposite. Kimberly felt herself malfunctioning, her emotions freaking out as she tried to reel herself back in.
“I’m so sorry that this is happening, Kim.”, Trini’s voice was all that Kimberly could hear and she looked down at the smaller girl.
“I’m sorry too.”, Kimberly apologized, mainly to her sister, reaching out and grabbing Mo’s hand again. “I could feel that something was wrong, you know.” Trini peeked up at the girl who was holding her, “It felt like a part of me was slowly dying all throughout the day. Then, I was sitting a lunch when I just felt….empty.”, a tear rolled down Kimberly’s cheek as she spoke. Trini reached up a hand, wiping it away for her and smiling when Kimberly looked at her.
“Like you said earlier, Mo is too stubborn to die.”, Trini knew that it would make Kimberly smile, and it worked. The two just sat there for a few minutes, holding each other while the heart monitor’s beeping was the only thing filling the silence. Everything that had happened in the past few hours was exhausting, causing Kimberly to fall asleep, Trini still in her lap and her hand still in Mo’s.
It was bittersweet for Trini, sitting here with the two sisters. One of them she loved like a sister and the other she wanted to marry. Her stubborn nature was the only thing that was keeping Trini from saying that she forgave Kimberly because if she said it, then it was final. A certain feeling of guilt hit her right in the gut as she realized what Amanda had said earlier was right. She was a little whore. She had slept with Kimberly and Mo, her more than the girl that she actually dated. Suddenly, a flash of green and gold filled her vision and she looked to see Rita standing on the other side of Mo’s bed. No no no no no, Trini thought, wanting to jump out of Kimberly’s lap, but she knew that it would wake the girl.
“Look at this, yellow.”, Rita’s eyes sparkled as she leaned closer to Mo. “Instead of hurting Kimberly, you hurt the other one.”, she laughed as Trini had a scared look on her face.
What, but I thought she had a heart attack? , Trini thought, Rita laughing when she heard it.
“Oh please! Do you really think that a 17 year old as healthy as this one,”, she pointed a finger down at Mo, “Could have a heart attack?”
Kimberly said that Mo had an enlarged heart.
“She lied to you once before, who says, she wouldn’t lie to you again.”, Rita knew that she had struck something inside of Trini. She could hear all of Trini’s thoughts, most of them expressing worry about Mo and the woman grinned, “I wonder….” Suddenly, Rita’s hand was on Mo’s chest and there was a deadly silence. The heart monitor began beeping loudly, showing that Mo was crashing, Trini’s fears being recognized.
“No, stop.”, Trini whimpered, her body paralyzed as Mo’s monitor showed that her heart was trying and trying. At this, Kimberly jolted awake, looking at Trini and her sister. Mo was lying peacefully in her bed, her monitor beeping a it’s normal pace. The girl in her lap seemed to be panicking, her eyes glued to her sister and it seemed like she was crying. When she first heard Trini whimpering, she thought that maybe it was just a bad dream, but her eyes were open wide and her body was convulsing with sobs while she stared.
“Trini.”, Kimberly tried getting the girl to face her, but to no avail as Trini’s eyes were glued to the spot. There was no response. Taking matters into her own hands, Kimberly picked the tiny girl up and walked out to the hallway, sitting down on the floor. She pulled Trini into her lap, rubbing her back soothingly as they sat there. What she didn’t know was that Trini was still seeing Rita in front of her, a grin on the woman’s face.
“Don’t worry, yellow. I’ll be back.”, Rita ran a hand through Trini’s hair, causing the smaller girl to whimper and bury her head into Kimberly’s neck. Suddenly, another voice filled her ears and Trini looked up to see Kimberly staring down at her with a concerned look on her face.
“What’s going one, Trini?”, Kimberly put a hand on her cheek, wiping away at the tears. Trini couldn’t say anything as she just leaned more into the hug, not caring about anything that Kimberly had done in the past only caring about the fact that she was here. Now.
An hour passed and everyone had visited Mo, except for Olivia. Each time that Kimberly had come back to get another one of their friends, Jason and Billy the only other ones there, Olivia just stayed in her chair. Not once jumping up and saying that she wanted to go back. In all honesty, she didn’t. She didn’t want to see Mo like that, in that environment. It wasn’t like she didn’t have a mental image of what the girl she loved looked like.
Mo was probably pale, sweaty, and weak. With tubes sticking out of her while wires decorated the other parts of her, almost as if they were meant to be there. They weren’t. Every time that Mo even crossed her thoughts, the guilt would just run back to slap her in the face with the fact that she didn’t do anything.
What was there that she could have done? For starters, she could have forgiven her and listened when she tried to explain. She could have understood that Mo fell for her, not Trini or anyone else, after they had been dating for a while. Initially, it was fine for Olivia to be mad, but ignoring her for all that time had ended up doing something that she had never wanted. Mo ending up here. There was so much that she could have done, but she didn’t.
Olivia let her friends ignore Mo, let them be mean to her, and let this happen without caring about how it could really affect her. It had come time for Kimberly to come back, the taller girl making her way over to Olivia and not saying a word. Just waiting. Waiting for Olivia to stand up and face her fears by going to see Mo.
The blonde got to her feet, nodding at Kimberly before the two made their way to Mo’s room. As they walked, Olivia could sense when they got closer and closer until they finally stopped. Jason, Billy, and Trini were all standing outside of the room by the window, giving her a sympathetic gaze. She ignored them, opening the door before it could mock her with guilt. It looked just like she thought it would, the girl that she loved looking just like her mother did when she was dying.
That was the reality. Mo was dying and there was nothing that Olivia could do about it, unless she was willing to give up her heart. Olivia would give up anything just to see Mo open her chocolate brown eyes again. For the girl to just sing one more song about how she was a new person. One of the cutest things about Mo was that she always giggled whenever Olivia would kiss her neck. The memory made Olivia smiled as she stared at the girl in the bed, the smile quickly being wiped away when she heard a groan.
Mo’s eyes fluttered, blinking open, the light immediately attacking them and the girl shutting them closed again. Opening them again, the light wasn’t as bright and Mo finally got to see her surroundings. She was in a white room, it smelled like it had been cleaned a lot and there was an annoying beeping beside her, a tube down her throat which was keeping her from speaking. When she tried to move, it felt like her heart was on fire, wincing as she went back to her original position. The girl turned her head, only for her heart to skip a beat when she saw who was standing a few feet from her bed, cold eyes staring at her as she tried to control her heart. It didn’t work. Beeping beside her intensified, her heart burning even more as tears welled up from the pain. Everytime she breathed it felt like someone was stabbing her in the chest with a hot knife. Darkness seeped back into her vision and as it did, she could vaguely hear someone screaming her name.
Kimberly knew that there was something wrong with Olivia when she hesitated coming back to see Mo. The girl had just sat there, not moving, speaking, and rarely blinking. It had made Kimberly worried, but when she came back the third time, it seemed like she was ready. They walked side by side through all of the hallways, Kimberly somewhat familiar with them now, until they stopped in front of Mo’s door. Olivia didn’t look at the other three teenagers standing there, immediately going into the room. Watching from the window, Kimberly saw as Olivia stood there, no words being said and no movement being made.
A hand flew over her mouth when she saw Mo’s eyes open, the girl looking around. She was confused and Kimberly wanted to go in there, tell her sister that everything was ok and that she would be fine. Just as she was getting up, a hand grabbed her forearm, pulling her back from the door. Trini stood behind her, hand wrapped around her arm and she just shook her head, signaling that they needed this time.
Kimberly was about to nod when she heard it. The beeping. It was like a signal for death. A shadow was cast over them, almost like he was waiting. Waiting for Mo to croak for the final time so that he could take her. He would take her to a place where she wouldn’t have to worry and wouldn’t be in pain. It sounds peaceful, but the people that are left by him are dumped with the pain that he spares the one he takes.
Kimberly looked through the window to see Mo clawing at her chest, a pained expression all over her face, almost as if she was going to scream out. Bursting through the door, Kimberly could already see death looming over her sister and she rushed forward, her pink armor threatening to cover her skin.
“MO!”, was the only thing that Kimberly screamed before she was shoving Olivia out of the way and draping herself over her sister, hoping to protect her from the shadow. The nurses and doctors rushed in, trying to force Kimberly away, but they couldn’t move her. Trini ran into the room, the only one who was strong enough to get her out of there, and threw Kimberly over her shoulder. All that Kimberly could do was watch as death observed the nurses trying to save Mo, the shadow seemingly smiling at the thought that they could save her from him.
She tried begging, pleading with him to just take her and not Mo. Not to take her incredibly stupid yet smart sister. To leave the one person besides Trini who always made sure that she knew that she deserved the world. Her younger sister, by only four minutes, who took on the challenge of being the perfect Indian daughter so that Kimberly could do what she wanted. The one person who had never left her behind, even when she was being a monumental bitch. Take anyone but her. Take anyone but Mo. It seemed that the shadow heard her, vanishing as the machine beside the bed started beeping again. Exhaustion hit Kimberly as Trini set her down in the waiting room chair, the smaller girl pulling her into her lap. As she slowly fell asleep, she swore that she saw the shadow again. Except this time, it was hovering over Trini.
I hope that you enjoyed this chapter. It was really exciting for me to right since last chapter was extremely sad. Mo isn't dead, but it looks like Kimberly just made a deal with death.
Question of the chapter: What do you think is going to happen?
Thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys! <3
Chapter 16: Chapter 16
Zack shows up and we see if Mo is going to get a heart or not.
Nobody had heard anything from Zack. It was almost as if he had just disappeared. Not that Kimberly minded. While it was mean to think something like that, she just felt like Zack would sit there and glare at her, even though her sister was dying. He is the type of guy who doesn’t put his feelings on hold, no matter what the situation is. Kimberly paced back and forth in the waiting room, Trini and Olivia sitting in the chairs while holding hands. It had been a few hours since Mo had crashed for the third time and Kimberly couldn’t find it in herself to calm down. Trini had tried, but it didn’t work, so she just let the girl pace until she dropped. She just watched, her eyes following Kimberly’s form while she walked.
After a while, the doctor comes in and announces that Mo is stable, for now. As both the exhaustion and relief hit her, Kimberly falls to her knees, Trini catching her before she can hit the floor. It was probably the wrong time for Zack to walk in, immediately scowling at the position that Kimberly and Trini were in. He shakes his head in disbelief, hoping that he is just imagining things. When he got a text from Jason to come to the hospital, he thought that maybe Trini or Billy was hurt. Finding out that it was Mo sent some sort of weird satisfaction through him, even though it shouldn’t. It wasn’t that he hated Mo or anything, he certainly didn’t, he was just mad that she put Olivia through the wringer.
All that he could think to say was, “Why are you holding her?” Their heads snapped up at the sound of his voice, Kimberly the first to look away from him when she saw the look in his eyes. Trini growled under her breath at him, saying that he was lucky her hands were around Kimberly and not his throat. Jason grabs him by his shoulders, shaking his head when Zack gives him a questioning look, “What?”
“Not the time, man.”, Jason tries leading him away, Zack swatting his hands off of his shoulders.
Billy stepped forward, a firm look on his face as he blocked Zack’s view of the two girls, “Zack, stop it.”
“No. This isn’t the time or place.”, Billy leads him over to the opposite side of the room, forcing him into a chair. When he turns around, Trini mouths thank you to him, Billy just smiling at her before taking a seat next to Zack. They wait a few more minutes for the doctor to come out and say that Mo could have visitors. Kimberly stood up, Trini taking her hand and the two start walking when Kimberly stops. She turns around and faces Zack with a light smile.
“Hey, Zack.”, he looks up at her, rolling his eyes when he sees who it is. The taller girl ducks her head, Trini growling behind her. “Do you want to come back and see Mo?”
“Why would I want to?”, Zack crosses his arms, raising an eyebrow at Kimberly. “Also why is she in here in the first place? She’s probably just being over dramatic like all you Harts are.”
Before Kimberly could respond, Billy jumped in, “Actually, Mo had a heart attack. She has a heart condition where her heart is enlarged and as she ages, the heart loses its ability to pump blood like a normal heart. Unfortunately because Mo drinks and has a lot of stress from her parents, and us, she caused her heart’s condition to deteriorate. From what I have been able to understand, she has had about three episodes where her heart was causing her a lot of pain which was a sign that her heart was getting worse. Anyways, if she doesn’t get a new heart in the next couple hours, then her’s will shut down completely. Basically, she’ll die.” Everyone just stared at Billy, a thankful smile decorating Kimberly’s face as he finished explaining. She really didn’t want to have to say everything out loud, because then, it would be real.
“Maybe you should give her your heart, Kim.”, Zack smirked, Kimberly just frowning at his statement. The rest of them just stood there, gawking at Zack saying something so rude and hurtful. Trini’s hands were balled up into fists, her fingernails cutting into the palm of her hand. When he noticed the confused look on Kimberly’s face he stood up, “Let me clarify. You should kill yourself. Trini would be so much better off without you here.”
“Zack!”, Jason exclaimed, his eyes wide while he stared at his teammate. Kimberly’s head was down, her hair like a curtain over her face as it shielded anyone from seeing the tears rolling down her cheeks.
“Well, I mean, Olivia is gonna be better off when Mo dies.”, Zack continues. That was when Trini’s control snapped and she went to punch the boy, but he was already on the floor. Olivia was standing over him, a cold look on her face as she just stared, his hand covering his bleeding mouth. Quickly, Trini grabbed Kimberly’s arm and whisked her away from the scene, making their way to Mo’s room. They couldn’t hear the commotion that was going on behind them as they walked, Kimberly holding in the tears as best she could. A few had slipped out when Zack initially said to kill herself, but she had ducked her head in order to get herself together. And so that no one would see. Sadly for Kimberly, Trini wasn’t stupid enough to think that she was ducking her head in shame or something.
The two walked into Mo’s room, the girl on the bed looking the exact same as before, and Trini sat down in the chair, pulling the taller girl into her lap. That was when the dam broke, Kimberly sobbing her heart out into Trini’s chest. Sure, it hurt when Amanda would tell her to kill herself, but hearing Zack say it was even worse. He was one of her closest friends, one of the people that had defended her the most when it came to the Amanda issue. Now, he was the one telling her just how worthless she was. In an effort to make Kimberly feel better, Trini whispered to her.
“I don’t want you dead.”, it was a comforting thing to say, but it just make Kimberly cry more, slightly smiling through the tears. The only other thing that Trini could think to do was sing Kimberly the Spanish lullaby that she sung her brothers when they had nightmares.
Arrorró mi niño, arrorró mi sol,
arrorró pedazo de mi corazón.
Este niño lindo se quiere dormir
y el pícaro sueño no quiere venir.
Este niño lindo se quiere dormir
cierra los ojitos y los vuelve a abrir.
Arrorró mi niño, arrorró mi sol,
arrorró pedazo de mi corazón.
Arrorró mi niño, arrorró mi sol,
Duérmete mi niño, duérmete mi amor.”
It was a short song, but by the end of it, Kimberly had passed out from exhaustion. Smiling, Trini just ran her hands through the girl’s hair, chuckling when Kimberly smiled in her sleep. As they sat there, Trini thought about this entire situation and how Mo might die. An idea popped into her head and Trini would have jumped out of the chair if Kimberly wasn’t in her lap. Carefully, she picked the girl up, gently laying her down next to her sister before bolting out of the room and down the hallway. None of her friends knew that her mother worked here as a doctor and she would have kept it a secret for longer, but this was her friend’s life here. She slid to a stop and resumed running down a narrow hallway until she reached the door that said Dr. June Gomez. Knocking twice, Trini waited until she heard someone say enter.
When she walked in, her mother was squinting at her computer, her glasses slipping down her nose as she read. June looked up to see her daughter standing there, out of breath, with a terrified look on her face. Immediately, she stood up and walked over to her daughter, but before she could say anything Trini interrupted her.
“I need your help.”, that was something that June hadn’t heard since Trini was in elementary school.
“With one of my friends.”, as she said that June frowned. Why would Trini want help with her friends? “She’s dying.”
June straightened her back, “Ok, I know I’m a doctor, Trini, but I can’t help her unless you tell me everything.”
“Her name is Mohini Hart, or Mo just for short, and she really needs a heart transplant. Like, in the next couple of hours or else she dies.”, Trini began pacing back and forth, something that June knew she did when she was panicking. “I figured that you might be able to help her get a heart. Please help her. I’ll do anything. I’ll spend more time with the family, I-I’ll talk more. Whatever it takes to get you to help her.”
“That won’t be necessary. I’ll do it.”, June said without hesitation, making Trini stop and give her a shocked look. June merely laughed at her daughter, “It’s my job, Trini. Did you really think that I would say ‘no’?”
“W-well, yeah.”, Trini fiddled with the zipper of her jacket.
“Of course I’m going to help her and it just makes her even more special because she is your friend. I know a hospital and one of the doctors there owes me a favor.”, June walked around to her desk, sitting back down and pulling out her phone. Trini stood there, listening to her mother talking on the phone, her hands shaking slightly. After a few minutes, June hung up, placing her phone back on the right side of her desk before turning to her daughter. “The heart should be here in an hour.”, June didn’t expect for Trini to leap over the desk and wrap her in a hug.
“Thank you.”, Trini whispered, squeezing her mother a little tighter before she let go and bolted out the door. She ran down the hallways as fast as she could and burst through the door to Mo’s room, both of the girls still lying on the bed, asleep. Not wanting to wake them, mainly Kimberly because Mo had a bunch of drugs in her system, Trini walked quietly over to the chair and sat down, bring her knees up to her chest. It was one of the many ways that she fell asleep now, her eyes always darting around in search for the woman clad in green and gold. Soon, her eyes began to close and she fell into a deep sleep.
Trini was jolted awake by the sound of someone’s laughter. She recognized it immediately and jumped up, searching the room only to find that there was no one besides her and the sisters. Then, a claw wrapped around her throat and Trini was whipped around to see Rita standing there, a smile painted on her face as she looked Trini over.
“It’s good to see you again, yellow. Certainly had been too long.”, Rita released Trini, pushing the tiny girl into the chair and walking to the bed. “What do we have here?”, the woman leaned over the two girls, smirking when she realized who they were. “My, my! It’s the Hart twins in all their glory. One of them is dying and the other one might as well die.”, Rita’s claws reached up and grazed over Mo’s forehead, no reaction coming from the girl. Suddenly, Rita’s body was floating over the bed, a sense of deja vu washing over Trini, and she ran her hands through Kimberly’s hair, getting a sleepy groan from the other girl.
“Don’t touch her.”, Trini growled out as soon as Rita’s hands went through Kimberly’s hair.
Rita cackled, charging towards Trini and wrapping her hand back around her throat, “I don’t think that you’re in a position to tell me what to do, yellow.”
“Leave her out of this, please.”, Trini tried again, Rita loosening her grip.
“I’ll do that, on one condition.”
“Anything.”, when she said that, Rita grabbed Trini by the hair, pulling her head back while Rita’s nails dug into her scalp. The blood trickled out of her head and stained her hair, dripping on the floor beneath her.
“Find my staff.”, Rita requested, her nails digging deeper into Trini’s skull. She whimpered, trying to get the woman to let go, but it only made her hand tighten.
“Ok!”, Trini exclaimed, just wanting relief from the pain. Her nails slowly pulled out of the wounds, that being more painful then when they were cutting into Trini’s head. One hand was still on the tiny girl’s throat, her grip tightening and causing Trini to gasp for air.
“If you don’t find it in 3 days, I will kill you precious Kimberly. Her sister will be a bonus.”, Rita whispered that last part in Trini’s ear before her figure vanished and Trini blacked out.
Seeing Zack talk down to Kimberly like that really made Olivia want to snap his neck, but when he said that Mo deserved to die, she saw red. When she punched him, it was like all of her anger at Mo, Zack, and the universe was packed into it. Jason helped him stand back up, his lip bleeding while Billy left the room. Olivia just went back to her seat, sitting down and ignoring everything around her. It was a little while later that she felt her phone buzz in her pocket, bringing her out of her daze.

Liv, where are you?
Little Drummer Boy
You missed practice.
And you aren’t at your house.
I’m at the hospital right now. Can’t talk.
What?! Why are you at the hospital?!
Are you ok?
Little Drummer Boy
Do you need anything?
I’ll tell you guys later, but I’m fine.
Is your grandmother ok?
Is it your dad?
Little Drummer Boy
I thought you didn’t like hospitals?
What do you guys not understand about I CAN’T TALK RIGHT NOW?!
Olivia huffed, putting her phone in her pocket and making her way to Mo’s room. It was silent when she walked in, the beeping of the machine was the only thing that she could hear along with Kimberly’s light snores. The girl was lying on the bed next to Mo while Trini was curled up in the chair. She stood there for a second, looking at all of them with a slight smile, before she walked over to the other side of the bed, sitting on the edge of it. Mo’s eyes were closed, the pained expression that Olivia had seen about an hour ago was wiped from her face as she slept peacefully. There wasn’t a bone in her body that wanted Mo dead, but she didn’t want her to be in pain.
Lifting a hand up, Olivia ran her hands through Mo’s hair, smiling as she remembered when the girl was awake. They always had so much fun together, even when one of them was having a bad day. Movement to her left caused Olivia to retract her hand, looking to see Kimberly stirring and blinking her eyes open. The girl gave Olivia a lazy smile as she tried to wake up, stretching her arms and back until she heard a satisfying pop.
“I’m guessing that she is still asleep.”, Kimberly said, looking over at Trini while Olivia was looking at Mo.
“Yeah.”, Olivia responded, her hand tracing Mo’s jawline when Kimberly looked over, a small smirk on her face.
“I was talking about Trini, but yeah Mo too.”, Kimberly knew that if Mo was awake, she would totally scoff at the remark. Olivia just blushed while Kimberly got up, going over to the chair where Trini was and picking the tiny girl up in her arms. She sat back down in the chair, Trini snuggling further into Kimberly and letting out a cute little sigh of content. The two girls that were awake aww ed at how cute Trini was, even though she constantly denied it.
All of a sudden, the door slammed open and nurses flooded in, Trini jumping out of Kimberly’s lap and landing in a fighting stance. When she realized the it was just the nurses, she sat back down, leaning her head back on Kimberly’s shoulder. Olivia was pushed off of the bed while the nurses went around Mo’s bed, mumbling medical stuff that only they could understand. A woman walked into the room, observing what the nurses were doing before turning to Kimberly. Trini realized who it was and got out of Kimberly’s lap, the taller girl not having enough time to ask what she was doing until the woman started talking.
“You must be Ms. Hart’s twin sister?”, the woman reached out her hand for Kimberly to shake, Trini’s eyes were wide. “I’m Dr. Gomez.”
“Kimberly.”, the girl took Dr. Gomez’s hand, shaking it before she turned to Mo. “What’s going on?”
Dr. Gomez stopped corrected a nurse before turning back to Kimberly, “Your sister is getting her heart. The nurses are preparing her for surgery and the heart will be here in, well, twenty minutes now.”
“Really?”, Kimberly was so elated at the news, wanting to hug her sister so badly.
“Yes. Once the heart gets here we are rushing her straight into surgery.”, Dr. Gomez didn’t have time to continue as Kimberly wrapped her arms around the woman, happy tears spilling out of her eyes.
“Thank you.”, was the only thing that Kimberly could whisper while she hugged the doctor. Dr. Gomez chuckled, wrapping her arms around Kimberly’s waist and looking over the girl’s shoulder at her daughter with a raised eyebrow. She saw Trini sitting on Kimberly’s lap when she walked into the room, it wasn’t like she didn’t know that Trini was dating someone. Trini wasn’t exactly good at lying when it came to something romantic and her mother had known she was dating for a few weeks. The smaller girl was standing off to the side, a innocent look on her face as she watched Kimberly hug her mother.
When they pulled away, Dr. Gomez went into mother mode and wiped Kimberly’s tears, “It’s my job. Also, you and your sister mean a lot to my daughter and I would do anything to make her happy.” Kimberly had a confused look on her face before it clicked. She slowly turned to look a Trini, the girl giving her a shy wave when she noticed Kimberly looking at her. The nurses and Dr. Gomez left the room, leaving the two girls to talk, Olivia to preoccupied with Mo.
“So that’s your mom?”, Kimberly questioned, a fake intimidating look on her face.
Trini didn’t look up, “Yeah.”
Almost immediately Kimberly’s facade broke and she walked over to Trini, taking her hands in her own, “I’m not mad, Trini. I promise, but I do want to know something.” The smaller girl looked up. “Did you ask your mom to help get Mo a heart in time?”
“Yeah.”, Trini responded with no hesitation. “I know how much Mo means to you, obviously because she’s your sister, and if she died then--ooof”, all the air was squeezed out of Trini’s lungs as Kimberly wrapped her in a tight hug. Trini awkwardly wrapped her arms around Kimberly’s waist, feeling Kimberly place her forehead in her neck. On the other side of the room, Olivia watched the two, a smile on her face and she grabbed Mo’s hand. Leaning forward, she whispered something into Mo’s ear, lacing their fingers together as best she could. Trini and Kimberly broke apart, both girls blushing as they stepped away from each other.
Everyone settled down, Olivia still sitting next to Mo while Kimberly was on the other side, Trini in the chair holding Kimberly’s hand. After a while, nurses decked in scrubs walked in, telling Kimberly and Olivia to get off the bed so that they could wheel Mo out. Kimberly asked if they could give her a second, all of them nodding while Kimberly whispered something in Mo’s ear, giving her an awkward hug before she stepped back. They watched as Mo was wheeled out of the room, her heart speeding up when she turned a corner and was out of sight. The three of them stood in the room, just standing there while they prayed to whoever that Mo was going to be ok.
I hope that you liked the chapter and there is more drama to come. Also, if I screwed up the Spanish, I'm sorry.
Question of the chapter: Will Trini be able to find Rita's staff in order to save Kimberly?
Thanks for reading and supporting. Love you guys! <3
Chapter 17: Chapter 17
Trini has a panic attack. Guess who wakes up?
“Will you sit down? Your pacing is giving me a headache.”, Trini rubbed her temples as Kimberly paced, the sound of her heeled boots clicking on the floor was irritating Trini. Kimberly didn’t respond as she kept walking, Trini glaring at the taller girl with an threatening look in her eye. They had all been up for the past 10 hours since Mo had been admitted to the hospital, plus they had all gotten about 2 hours of sleep combined. Jason could feel Trini’s anger building up and right when he thought she was going to jump up and strangle Kimberly, he got out of his chair. He walked quickly over to where the girl was pacing and wrapped an arm around her waist, leading her over to a chair before forcing her to sit down. When Kimberly turned to ask him why he did that, he just shushed her.
“If I didn’t then Mo wouldn’t be the only one in a hospital bed.”, Jason sat back in his chair, a huff escaping Kimberly’s mouth as she looked at Trini from across the room. Zack hadn’t said a word since Olivia had punched him, the boy sulking in the corner. Kimberly’s fidgeting didn’t stop and the girl’s knee was bouncing, much to Trini’s annoyance. Right when she was about to get up and slap the taller girl, Billy pushed Kimberly’s knee down. Trini sat back in her seat, huffing and pulling her beanie over her eyes to get some sleep. For ten minutes Trini sat there, beanie over her eyes, as she tried to sleep. It wasn’t until then that she realized there was no chance she was getting any and pulled her beanie away from her eyes. The light pierced her eyes like a sword causing her to wince.
Instead of focusing on the pain in her eyes, Trini stood up and turned to face the others. “I’m going to get some coffee. Do you guys want anything?”, silence was her only response. Huffing in annoyance, Trini walked over to the coffee station and began making herself some when she heard the nurses talking. She tuned it out in favor of focusing on the sounds the coffee machine was making until she felt a claw in the middle of her back. The smell of dead fish and saltwater made Trini’s gag reflex act up, the girl pushing down the bile that was rushing to her throat.
“That was very admirable of you, yellow. Getting pink’s poor sister a new heart.”, Rita’s voice was low, almost soothing if it weren’t for the sharp edges at the end. The nails dug more into her back, the small girl trying not to hiss with the nurses not that far away.
“There are the thoughts I like!”, Rita almost sounded like she was devouring some delicious food as she spoke. “What other anger have you got in there?”
A drug. That’s what Trini’s emotions were to Rita. A drug.
Trini gulped, shaking her head which answered Rita’s question and was also an attempt to get the voice out of her head. She jumped when the woman laughed, hot coffee spilling on her hand and sizzling on her skin. As she wiped it off, Rita watched with a disinterested look on her face, glancing at her nails every now and then like a teenage princess. When she finished, the skin was the same color as Jason’s armor with a blister starting to form.
Rita snorted, “Are you done being weak, yellow? We have more important matters to discuss.” Trini wanted to lash out, slap the big green bean across the face, but she knew that it was all in her head. “Exactly.”, Rita floated forward, feet not even touching the ground. Her eyes glowed green as she towered over the smaller girl, Trini shrinking to the size of a mouse under her gaze. “Let’s see how pink’s sister is doing, shall we?”, before Trini could protest, Rita had placed her hand on the girl’s head and suddenly Trini was in the operating room.
June had her hand in Mo’s chest, trying to get the heart pumping, the flat line on the screen taunting her as she continued. Nurses around her were trying to convince her that it was a lost cause, but June persisted. She kept pumping, her eyes glazing over with unshed tears as she stared down at the girl on the table.
“Come on, mom.”, Trini spoke, hope filling her voice. That was all she had at the moment. At least until June removed her hand from Mo’s chest, blood colored paint covered her gloved hand as one single tear slipped out of her eye.
“Call it.”, but Trini didn’t even hear the time as she fell to her knees. She failed. They all failed. Even though Mo had gotten the heart in time, she died anyway. The images around her vanished and Trini found herself on her knees at the coffee station, two nurses rushing over to her. Their words were not able to get through the cotton stuffed in Trini’s ears, the tiny girl still in shock from what she just saw.
That was the first thought she had. Without hesitation, she jumped up and ran back to the waiting room, the nurses left in their confusion. Bolting into the waiting room, Trini’s eyes looked around wildly, but there was no sign of Kimberly. Rita’s laugh was ringing in her ears and that’s when she knew.
Rita took Kimberly.
She spun on her heel, her fist reeling back and making contact with the wall like a wrecking ball. A crack sounded through the building, commotion slowing down for a moment before going back to its regular self. Trini’s burned hand was now broken, but she didn’t care. The only thing that she had ever really cared about was gone. There had to be a way to get her back, but then Rita’s voice came back, taunting her and saying that she would never find Kimberly now. Her first struck the wall again. And again. And again. And aga--
“Trini!”, Zack leapt out of his seat, wrapping his arms around Trini’s small waist and quickly pulling her away from the beaten up wall. The hand was mangled, bones sticking out of two fingers and Zack could feel himself getting light headed as he continued to stare at it. Panicked mumbling was what broke him out of his stare, only to be met with the most terrified eyes in the world. “T, what’s wrong? What happened back there?”, he wanted to move them to a chair, but he was afraid to frighten Trini any more than she already was. Her mumbling increased, her small form shaking as if she was cold, and the only words that he could make out made him snap his head over to Jason.
“Kimberly….Rita….took….her….”, was all that Zack heard, his head spinning on an axis as the words were processed. The rest of the team was standing in the waiting room, eyes wide as Trini began to flail more in Zack’s embrace.
“Jason, help me out here!”, Zack begged and the blonde boy sprang into action, trying to restrain Trini’s legs. That was when nurses started to take notice of the hand, blood dripping on the floor and spraying on the walls as the girl continued to flail. They ordered the boys to restrain her to the ground, Zack and Jason doing as they were told while two nurses attempted to calm Trini down.
Zack could feel his heart breaking at how scared Trini looked. He knew that she had nightmares, but he didn’t even think about how she felt when she was awake. Damn Rita for doing this to someone as pure and great as Trini. It was the classic case of a demon vs. an angel. He refused to let the demon win. A nurse came back with a syringe, of what they figured was a sedative, just as Kimberly walked out of the bathroom.
Like they normally did, Kimberly’s eyes went right to Trini and water began to flood them. Trini was still fighting off everyone, the nurse with the syringe couldn’t even get near without almost getting hit, and Zack got an idea.
He leaned down ever so slightly to Trini’s ear, “Trini, look to your left.” She did as he instructed, but her eyes wouldn’t focus. There were only blobs of blue, blonde, and pink coloring the room. “It’s Kimberly.”, Zack whispered in the softest voice, choking back tears when he heard the tiny girl whimper at the name. Finally catching on, the boy in red beckoned the pink ranger forward. Kimberly was there at Trini’s side before Jason could even blink and he was surprised that the girl had any tears left after the past 17 hours they had.
“Trini.”, wild brown eyes scanned hers and Trini whimpered again, each time the sound becoming more heartbreaking. “It’s ok. You’re ok.”, Kimberly placed a hand on her cheek, the jaw unclenching and tears finally overflowing. The nurse moved forward silently as Kimberly kept talking, “It’s all alright, baby. Nothing is wrong.” Trini felt the liquid being shoved into her veins, her eyelids becoming heavy and Kimberly’s voice slowing down.
“Alright, let’s get her back so we can fix that hand.”, being so caught up in calming Trini down, Kimberly didn’t even notice the mangled thing that was once known as a hand. It was severely burned with a side of bones poking out of the soft flesh. “We can get a bed down here--”
Kimberly interrupted the lady, “No it’s fine. I’ll carry her.” With their ranger strength, she knew that even though her muscles were screaming in protest she would be able to pick up the girl without a problem. Everyone stepped away, Kimberly scooping Trini up and they followed the nurses to a room. Softly setting Trini down, she grabbed the girl’s uninjured hand, her thumb swiping back and forth in a comforting motion. She knew that Trini was really out of it, but there was still a need to make sure that the girl was calm and safe. While the nurses fixed the hand, Kimberly whispered things in Trini’s ear that would make the dopey girl give her a lopsided smile as a gift.
Soon the hand was bandaged and Trini was struggling to keep her eyes open. One of the nurses told Kimberly something about them being allowed to stay in there until Trini woke up again. Nodding, Kimberly crawled into the bed next to her, wrapping her arms around the tiny waist and humming softly the lullaby that Trini sang to her earlier. Slowly, the two girls fell asleep not knowing what was going to happen when they woke up.
A light shove made Kimberly shoot up in the bed only to be met with the smirking face of June Gomez. There were bags under her eyes and new scrubs were on her body. Quickly, Kimberly untangled herself from Trini, rubbing her eyes before looking back at the woman before her.
“Trini sorta, kinda, punched a wall.”, Kimberly sheepishly admitted, June just snorting while looking at her sleeping daughter.
“Oh, I know. The nurses rushed into my operating room saying that my daughter destroyed half of the waiting room.”, June couldn’t help the laugh that escaped her when she thought back to all of their old houses and the walls that had holes in them, each one because of Trini’s panic or pent up anger. Emotions were something that Trini always bottled up, never to be revealed unless it had to. “I actually came in here to talk to you about the surgery.”, June saw Kimberly freeze, her muscles going stiff and brain disconnecting for a second.
“Is she ok?”, Kimberly’s voice was shaky, all the fear being expressed from it.
Trini’s groggy, ruff voice startled both of them, “She’s dead. I saw her.” Tears rushed to Kimberly’s eyes before June could protest.
“No.”, Kimberly mumbled, putting her head in her hands and sobbing while Trini just turned her head away. The doctor sat down next to Kimberly, putting an arm around her shoulders while trying to get her to stop crying. That was when the taller girl began to lash out, struggling to push the woman away until June finally snapped.
“She’s fine, Kimberly! Shhhh. She’s fine.”, June held her tightly as she slumped into her arms.
“Really?”, the girl sounded so small and weak, the events of the past 10 hours having taken a huge toll on her.
Getting her into a sitting position, June wiped her tears and smiled when their eyes met, “Yes, she’s fine. Wonderful, in fact. Probably the easiest heart transplant I’ve ever done.” While it was a lie, Mo’s transplant was actually the hardest of her career as she would later say, June felt the need to comfort the girl in any way possible. “Would you like to see her?”, the question wasn’t just directed at Kimberly, but also at Trini, who had yet to turn her head back to the two.
Kimberly nodded and June looked back to see Trini staring at her with wide eyes. “She’s a-alive?”, it was almost too soft for her to hear. June gave her daughter a bright smile before turning to Kimberly again and standing up.
“You can carry her to the room. There are plenty of chairs for her to sleep in.”, there was a firm tone to her voice and the brunette nodded, scooping Trini into her arms. The tiny girl squeaked with surprise, clinging to Kimberly’s neck as they walked out of the room and down the hallway. As they continued walking, Trini started shaking. When Kimberly looked down she saw the girl with tear tracks on her face that were shining in the florescent light.
“Baby, didn’t you hear your mom?”, brown eyes looked up at her and the girl sniffed. “Mo’s alive. She made it through the surgery and we are going to see her right now.”, Kimberly didn’t know if the drugs in Trini’s system had caused her to wake up for one half of the conversation and fall asleep for the rest of it. She was awake now and obviously really distraught about something that Kimberly couldn’t quite pin point.
June was still leading them through the hallways, Trini snuggling into Kimberly’s neck. Shivers going up her spine each time she felt a little puff of breath on her skin. Eventually, June stopped at a door, pushing it open and ushering the girls inside.
Mo was laying on the bed, her chest heavily bandaged and her body not moving. The monitor next to the bed showed that her heart beat was strong. Stronger than it had ever been before. Before Kimberly could turn around to thank the woman, Trini was whimpering again. Kimberly rushed her over to the chair next to Mo’s bed, setting her down and kneeling in front of her.
“Trini, hey hey hey.”, Kimberly cupped her face, Trini meeting her eyes. The amount of fear in them struck Kimberly like a blow to the chest. “She’s ok, see?”, moving out of the way so that Trini could get a glance. That seemed to calm Trini instantly, sagging in the chair and taking deep breaths. It had been years since Trini had a panic attack so badly that she had punched a wall. When she met Kimberly, her panic had stopped all together. Her eyelids covered her eyes, sleeping taking her in it’s loving arms once more.
With a sigh, Kimberly pulled the girl’s beanie, that had miraculously stayed on her head the entire time, and stood up. June was standing in the doorway, arms folded across her chest and the smirk back in place.
“You care for her.”, it wasn’t a question, more of an observational statement. That didn’t stop Kimberly from being momentarily terrified. The woman noticed, laughing at the teen, “I know she’s gay, Ms. Hart. I’ve known for years.”
Kimberly’s face morphed into a frown, “Then, why have you been so….” She could find a word that didn’t insult her parenting skills.
“Unaccepting?”, at Kimberly’s nod June sighed, looking up at the plain white ceiling. “It’s taken me a lot to understand completely. At first, I tried my hardest to convince myself that it was just a phase. Hell, I even tried convincing her. When we lived near my brother, her uncle Julio, came out as gay and I saw everything. My family insulted him, my mom slapped him across the face and did the same thing to his boyfriend, who was actually one of the best people besides my husband that I have ever met.”
“That’s--”, Kimberly was interrupted again.
“Harsh? Yeah. It really made me see what my family was and I could never imagine having to do that to my daughter. Trini has only ever done what I have asked of her, never once questioning me or defying me.”, tears pooled in the doctor’s eyes, “The mere thought of having to kick her out, slap her, or even tell her I don’t love her made my heart break. What hurt me even more was the thought of what my family would do to her if they found out. So, I researched, looked up the answer to every question that I had. A little while after the whole incident with Julio, we moved to Angel Grove. I remember the day she met you.”
Kimberly smiled at the thought, “What happened?”
“She went stomping around the house, soaking wet and mumbling ‘stupid fucking cheerleaders and their stupid pretty faces’.”, the two started laughing, stopping when Trini moved.
“Sounds like Trini.”, Kimberly quietly laughed, brushing a stray hair that had fallen into Trini’s face. Her nose scrunched adorably, Kimberly held back a squeal from the cuteness of the girl before her.
“That’s when I knew.”, June’s voice was more confident now.
The doctor smiled, “That I didn’t care that she was gay. She’s my daughter and I love her no matter what.” With nothing else to say, June nodded at Kimberly before making her way down the hallway and back to her office for the last couple hours of her rounds.
For a few minutes, Kimberly stayed kneeling in front of the sleeping form until her knees began to ache. She stood up, pressing a kiss to Trini’s forehead before leaving the room to go get the rest of her friends. When she walked in, they jumped out of their seats and rushed over to her.
Before they could speak, she held up her hand, “She’s fine.” At their questioning looks, Kimberly rolled her eyes, “Both of them. Trini and Mo. Mo’s out of surgery, so you guys can head back. Same room.” Billy and Jason ran in the direction of the room, Zack sat back in his seat, and Olivia stood next to Kimberly. The blonde turned to her and without warning, pulled her into the tightest hug imaginable.
“I’m glad she’s ok.”, was whispered in her ear and Kimberly rested her head on Olivia’s shoulder.
“Me too.”, she wanted to cry, but she didn’t have any tears left. As they pulled away, Olivia wrapped her arm around Kimberly’s shoulder and they started walking to Mo’s room. Three voices called out to them. Kimberly’s fists clenched as she spun around to see the three people that she blamed most for this. Stella, Wen, and Charlie rushed over. Olivia felt the anger radiating off Kimberly, so she stepped in front of the girl.
“Guys, now is NOT the time.”, Olivia warned, but they kept getting closer. The three bandmates were standing in front of them, worried looks on their faces.
“What happened?”, that was Stella.
“Did Kimberly do something?”, Wen.
“Is everything alright?”, Charlie.
A growl vibrated through the hospital, Kimberly’s pink armor threatening for the second time that day to cover her skin so that she could waste these assholes. It was Olivia who pushed her away.
“Kimberly, go back to the room. I’ll be there in a minute.”, Kimberly let out one final growl before stalking back to her sister’s room. “Really, guys?”
Stella frowned at the singer, “What? We thought something had happened to you!”
“So you blame Kimberly?”, Olivia could feel the anger sneaking up on her, she shoved it away. “Nevermind. It seriously took you guys,”, she glanced at her watch for dramatic effect, “10 hours to get here?!”
“You told us that you were fine, but when you didn’t come home after a while we figured you were still here.”, Charlie seemed to sense that something was off, but Olivia wanted to see their faces when each of them realized what actually happened.
“Of course I was still fucking here! Why wouldn’t I be?”, red was starting to seep into her eyes.
Wen took a step forward this time, “What happened, Olivia?”
“Mo had a heart attack that’s what happened!”, she practically screamed, the blood draining from their faces.
“W-what?”, Stella stuttered, reaching out to hold onto Charlie’s shoulder, who wasn’t holding up great either.
“Yeah, in fact she flatlined about 3 times. Were you guys here for that, hmmm?”, the silence amused Olivia. “No, you weren’t. You were too busy ignoring her to realize how much pain she was in. If you had just stopped being so stubborn then this never would have happened!”, she wasn’t even talking to them anymore. She was just standing in the middle of a hospital waiting room in a small town, yelling at herself for being so stupid.
“Olivia….”, Wen tried, but the glare he received made his mouth slam shut.
“You didn’t have to sit there and watch as she gasped for air! She couldn’t breathe!”, Olivia was shaking as she remembered. “She was so scared. I could see it in her eyes that she was terrified. And there was nothing that I could do. I couldn’t tell her that it would be alright or that she would live to see tomorrow. Or even that she would be able to see her sister again.”, by this point she was crying heavily, all of them staring at her with expressions of sorrow and regret. That was all that Olivia could feel. Regret.
“We didn’t know.”, Charlie spoke softly, fiddling with the ends of his sleeves.
Olivia gave a shaky laugh, wiping the tears from her eyes before continuing, “That’s all you have to say? Your only excuse is that you didn’t know? Well, you should have. You will never understand what it was like to watch her die knowing that there was nothing you could do. Instead, I’m going to have to deal with that the rest of my life and try to make it up to her.”
“I’m sorry. I’m so sorry, Olivia.”, Stella reached out to grab her hands, the blonde stepping back.
“Get out. Don’t even think of coming back here until you’ve figured out how to apologize.”, gathering herself, Olivia stood taller. “Now, I’m going back there to see Mo not knowing if she wants to see me ever again. I think it’s important she knows that at least one of us cares.”, and with that, Olivia left. Zack watched as the three stood there, letting the information soak in before making their hasty exits. Leaning his head back, he thought about everything Olivia said. The image of his mother gasping for breath, dying in front of him and watching death take her made him realize what an ass he was. If he ever had to watch that, he wouldn’t know what to do with himself. Those things he said to Kimberly and about Mo, there was no way in hell anyone would ever forgive him. It was too late now. He couldn’t take the words back. Closing his eyes, the black ranger took Olivia’s advice and tried to think about how he was going to apologize.
It was too bright. That was Mo’s first thought as she opened her eyes. The pain in her chest was dull, but still present. Wires were still wrapped around her in all different colors, the beeping beside her still causing her patience to tick, and it was still hard to move. Where was she? What happened? Mo tried to remember, squeezing her eyes shut tightly and racking her brain for anything, something. Images flashed before her. School, pain, the street, pain, her house, pain, the kitchen, pain, darkness, and finally….pain. After that, there was nothing but darkness.
Her eyes opened opened up again, searching around the room to find Jason and Billy asleep on the recliner. They were cuddled together, making Mo smile at the fact that Billy finally trusted someone enough to touch him. She turned her head more to see Trini asleep in the chair on the left side of her bed, her hand bandage. Turning again she saw her sister curled up, asleep at the foot of her bed just like when they were kids and Kimberly would have a nightmare. The two never went to their parents, always to each other and most of the time it was Kimberly who was scared. Mo could get over it and roll back to sleep, but her twin was a different story.
Mo was sleeping soundly in her bed, a long day of academics and social interactions wearing her down. A small cry made her eyes snap open. Immediately she knew that Kimberly had another nightmare. It wasn’t uncommon for Kimberly to have nightmares when their parents were away on trips. While Mo could deal with being left alone in their big house, mainly because it meant less pressure was being put on her constantly, Kimberly was always afraid of the monsters coming to get her.
Laying in her bed, Mo whispered to herself, “3….2….1” The door to her room creaked open and Kimberly’s puffy eyes scanned her sister’s bed.
“Mo?”, Kimberly spoke quietly, not wanting to wake her sister unless she had to. Her bright pink pajamas shone in the moonlight peeking out of Mo’s window. Mo smiled, waving her hand for Kimberly to walk over, the girl practically jumping on top of Mo. Kimberly’s small arms wrapped around Mo’s waist as she tightly hugged her sister, her small body still shaking from the night terrors.
Mo hugged her in return, “It’s alright, Kimmy. The monsters can’t get you in my room.”
Tear filled eyes stared up at her, “Really?”
“I tell you this every time.”, Mo scolded. She couldn’t help it. To Mo, it always felt like she was raising Kimberly instead of their parents. That was stupid for a nine year old to be raising another nine year old.
“I’m sorry, Mo.”, Kimberly pulled away from the hug, burying her head into the pillow next to Mo’s.
Sighing, Mo grabbed her sister back into the hug, “I’m sorry, Kimmy. It slips my mind that you don’t always remember what I tell you.” That was the understatement of the century. Kimberly never remembered what Mo told her.
“It’s ok. I know you’re just trying to help me, Mo.”, there was the nickname again. Mo had always been called ‘Mohini’, her birth name, and it was the same for Kimberly. When they turned five, Kimberly started calling her ‘Mo’ and in return Mo started calling her ‘Kimmy’. Their mother had scolded Mo, saying that she was never to allow someone to call her anything other than her real name. Some classic Hart advice ™ . Instead of listening, Mo allowed Kimberly to call her that and soon, people around school were calling her that too.
Snapping out of her head, Mo realized that the door to her room was still open and she groaned slightly. Kimberly’s head popped up, a fearful expression on her face.
“I heard a monster, Mo!”, Kimberly was shaking even more now as she glanced around.
“Kimmy, it’s ok. I’ll just close the door and they won’t be able to get in here.”, Mo sat up, getting ready to jump down from the bed when Kimberly wrapped around her like a koala. Mo was unamused by this, her face with that ‘really?’ look. The shaking of her sister made her features soften as she looked over her shoulder to see Kimberly’s head turning back and forth. “If you keep whipping your head around like that, you’re going to get whiplash.”, the head paused. Another creak sounded and Kimberly squeaked, hugging her sister tighter.
“Don’t go to the door, Mo! The monster will get you!”, tears were dripping onto Mo’s pajama shirt.
“I’ll be fine, Kimmy. Let me go.”, Mo tapped the girl’s arm, hoping it would work. It didn’t. Kimberly shook her head and squeezed Mo so hard that it was becoming difficult for her to get air in. “At *gasp* least *gasp* loosen *gasp* your *gasp* grip?”, Mo got out, Kimberly’s arms loosening significantly. When she was able to breathe again, Mo realized that Kimberly wasn’t letting up, so she just got out of the bed. As she walked across the room, her sister clung to her, shaking even more as they got closer to the door. Quickly, Mo shut it and padded back to the bed, leaning back so that her sister could hop off.
Relief went through her as the weight was released and she laid back down. Kimberly snuggled into her, still shaking and the clock in the dining room chimed loudly. ‘Of course the clock picks now to chime’, Mo thought as Kimberly continued to panic. An idea popped in her head.
“If any monsters come in here, I’ll protect you, Kimmy.”, Mo felt the girl freeze.
“But your heart!”, Kimberly exclaimed, the worry bouncing off the walls and back to Mo. Ever since Mo was diagnosed with her heart condition, Kimberly had been worried about her twenty four seven. The gym teacher at school didn’t believe Mo, thinking that she was Kimberly, and made her run an extra 3 laps. When Mo went to run, Kimberly took off and the teacher was satisfied when the girl came back around. The smile on Kimberly’s face as she protected her sister was infectious. It was one of the times when Mo wasn’t protecting Kimberly.
She chuckled, “Don’t worry about me, Kimmy. I’ll be fine.”
“Thanks, Mo.”, Kimberly could feel herself falling back asleep. That was until Mo poked her face causing her eyes to snap open and glare at her sister, the glare melting when she say the stoney look on Mo’s face.
“You know the deal.”, with a huff, Kimberly moved away from her sister and curled up at the foot of Mo’s bed. She wrapped the blanket that was there around her and fell asleep, Mo following soon. Before she could close her eyes, Mo whispered one last thing, “Someday, I intend to have a word with those monsters.”
The memory made her smile, cracked lips stretching and Mo wincing with the realization of how dry they were. A glass of water was on a tray to left of her, Mo reaching her arm out to grab it and nearly chugging the whole thing. Satisfied, Mo could only drop the empty cup next to her as fatigue rushed back to meet her. Her limbs felt weak and the pain in her chest was becoming sharper. She surveyed the room again, looking at all of her friends until her heart stopped. How could this be? Why? Was this just a dream?
There, clutching her hand tightly in her own, was the one girl that Mo thought she would never see again. Olivia. The girl looked worn out, eyes puffy around the edges and face blotchy from crying. Her head was resting on Mo’s right arm, drool dripping from her mouth onto Mo’s skin, but she couldn’t care in the slightest. This beautiful goddess was right in front of her, drooling on her arm as she slept soundly. Not wanting to wake the girl up, Mo turned her head slightly, but pain rippled through her at the slight movement. She couldn’t help the cry that left her. She also couldn’t help that Olivia jolted awake. Their eyes met and suddenly, everything around them vanished.
I am so sorry that I haven't updated in forever on this story. I have been really busy with everything and working on the final chapter of Blood Bones. To be honest, I forgot about this story for a little while until I realized that I really needed to work on it. I literally wrote this chapter today and I am so glad that I did. Hopefully I'll be able to update sooner than last time.
Thank you so much for reading and supporting. Love you guys! <3
