Dedication: To Angel and Enigmaforum, my Maddick and Vander fans. You two inspired this story, thank you so much for being my cheerleaders!
AN: So yeah, I finally started my first full-fledged Mystic Force story….I didn’t think this would ever happen. This idea is original, at least I think so. I haven’t seen anyone else do it, so *crosses fingers*
The morning started like any other Saturday in the Rocca
household had since the defeat of the Master and the retirement of the Mystic
“You know, why is it we’re running around the woods at seven
in the morning in the bitter cold of March?” Xander complained as the five
former Rangers took a break to catch their breaths. Each week, Daggeron had increased their
running trail by a half mile, so that they were currently running three miles,
and all of them were tired. Nick leaned
against a tree,
“If you think so lightly of the run, Xander, you can repeat it again this afternoon,” Daggeron’s voice echoed through the trees. The five Rangers straightened and began looking around. Normally when their mentor popped up like this, it meant it was time for their hand to hand combat training. “You have a third of a mile left, I suggest you hurry up.”
Taking in a deep breath, Chip, Nick and Madison began to run, while Vida rolled her eyes and glared at Xander. “Way to go, Xander the Great. We’re probably going to get extra punishment now.” Xander just stared at Vida’s back as she took off after the others, before he followed a few seconds later.
Once the team had returned to Rootcore, Vida, Xander and
Chip headed off back to The Rock Porium for their afternoon shifts while
“Daggeron, are you sure this is a wise decision?” Lianbow asked the pacing knight.
“I’ve wanted to look for her since
“Daggeron,” Udonna spoke softly, moving lay a delicate hand over his heart. “You do realize any number of things could have happened by now, don’t you?”
“Yes, I do, but I need to know, even if it’s just for closure.”
Lianbow walked to them and put his hand on Daggeron’s shoulder. “Then you’ve got our full support, and all our resources are at your disposal.”
The Solaris Knight smiled his thanks. “I’m going to leave immediately, please tell the Rangers I’ll be back as soon as I can.”
“We will,” Udonna told him. “Do you want us to tell them why you’ve gone?”
“I’ll explain to them the story about Elektra when I return with some more news.” That said, Daggeron hugged them both and turned to leave.
“Lianbow, what are you thoughts on this?” Udonna asked, turning to her husband.
“I can understand where he’s coming from,” he said, pulling his wife into his arms. “It’s the same as us – he’s searching for his other half, for his wife, and he’s not going to stop until he finds out what happened to her. The same as we did with each other, and Nick.”
Standing out of sight, Nick let his jaw drop when he heard
his father say wife. ‘Daggeron was
married?’ he asked himself, before turning and heading for the library to get
“Are you serious?” Vida questioned as Nick stood near the cash register relating the situation to the others.
“I’m dead serious,” Nick told them. “My dad is probably going to take over our training until Daggeron gets back.”
The others looked just as annoyed at being helpless as the former Blue Ranger did. “Until we find out more about Daggeron’s wife, we don’t have much to go on,” Chip commented.
“I’ve got an idea,” Vida spoke up, a smirk sliding onto her face and her eyebrows wiggling. “Who knows what went on then that could tell us about her without telling us to mind our own business?”
Her four teammates stood there staring at her,
shrugging. A noise broke them from their
silence, the team turning to see the door to the store opening and Leelee and
Phineas coming in together. Smiles broke
out on the faces of the five, with Xander, Chip,
Vida just smiled and nodded, the five moving to pounce on their Troblin friend. “Hey Phineas, we’ve got something we need to ask you,” Vida started.
“So let me get this straight, you want me, Troblin extraordinaire and the guy who was around during the Great War, to tell you what happened to Elektra, Daggeron’s wife?” Phineas started as the group of six sat at a table at an outdoor café down the street from the record shop.
“Yes,” Vida responded.
“Well, gee, I don’t know if I remember an Elektra, to tell you the truth,” he started, rubbing a hand over his chin. “That’s nearly twenty years ago, a lot has happened since then.”
Xander and Vida rolled their eyes, while Nick glared,
Phineas looked sheepish as he stared at the Rangers. “I sorta remember a woman,” he told them. “She was okay looking, if you ask me. Really long black hair, always wore it in a braid. She had these gray-black eyes, was fairly tanned, slender, probably a little taller than Vida and Madison. She was a healer and a fighter, and some said she was a barb or musician, a storyteller if you will.”
“What happened to her?” Xander prodded.
Phineas shrugged. “Last I heard, Calindor tried to capture her, turn her against the Mystics so he could render Daggeron useless, but she disappeared during the final battle.” Phineas said it so matter-of-factly that the Rangers could only stare at him like he’d gone crazy. “What? I told you I didn’t remember much, geez.”
“Okay, so we have some more to go on,” Nick started. “What do we do?”
“I want to pose a question,” Xander butted in. When the others turned to look at him, he started again. “What if something like what happened to Nick happened to her? What if she’s here in the human realm?”
