It's funny what things go through her mind when she's fighting, preparing to morph, or otherwise kicking butt or getting her butt kicked. It's never quite what she would think she should be thinking if asked. Like right now, as she's crawling through the debris of her broken zord and trying to focus on getting out alive before the thing catches fire, she's remembering the other day with Kim.
They had been out shopping when they had caught Kimberly's old friends staring at them. Trini had made a remark about them, and Kim had apologized, explaining that Trini, simply by hanging out with her, has also become labeled by the school as a "bad girl". Trini's never cared about being a bad girl or fitting in, but she had cared about the pain she'd seen in Kim's eyes and had kissed her so passionately in front of the world that, when they'd looked up again, Kimberly's old friends had all disappeared.
Suddenly, Trini feels a hand clasp hers, and Kimberly helps to pull her from the rumble. "The others?" Trini gasps the moment she sees Kim's okay. Gently, she touches the one scratch she sees on her face and brings her blood to her lips.
Her blood is sweet on her fingertips.
"We've gotta find them. They've gotta be okay!"
"They will be."
"How do you know?"
"Because we're us. Not just bad girls, not just friends. We're us. The five of us are something special, and I'm not just talking about the Power Rangers."
"We are, aren't we?"
"Yes, we are, but if we are to be damned," she says, still thinking of the other day and what she should have told her then, "then I want to be damned with you." They kiss before resuming the search for the rest of their family.
