<h3><center>The Merger Strike<br> By Lamont Stewart</center></h3> <h3><center>Part 1: A New Power</center></h3> <p>Lamont and Brad pulled themselves from the rubble of what was their headquarters.</p> <p>Brad said, "Oh what happened?"</p> <p>Lamont said, "Spiderina blew the place up."</p> <p>Brad said, "Oh, I forgot."</p> <p>Lamont said, "I'm sure you did. Brad look."</p> <p>Brad said, "What?"</p> <p>Lamont said, "It's Amanda and Nathan. The explosion must have returned them to normal."</p> <p>Brad said, "But how?"</p> <p>Lamont said, "Spiderina was holding the Merger Crystal when the explosion happened so together they must have triggered its power and returned Spiderina to normal."</p> <p>Brad said, "So the Merger Crystal does have the power to return Merged Creatures to normal."</p> <p>Lamont said, "Well the good news is that we have finally returned to our true time, and Spiderina was the last of our friends. The bad news is that Joseph can capture more humans and transform them too."</p> <p>Brad said, "I almost don't want to defeat Joseph."</p> <p>Lamont said, "Why is that?"</p> <p>Brad said, "I have a feeling that once we defeat Joseph a greater evil will appear. It's happened before. We defeated Charlie and his father Sam appeared. Then once we got rid of him Khan showed up. Next we got rid him and Dark Parallax showed up with the Mirror L-team. Once he was gone the Changing History Arounders came, and they were only the prelude to Count Daniel Funela. He came before Nathan, who managed to almost kill you. Then Daniel returned as Davis and almost did all of us in, until you returned and defeated him. But then came Steven Manna and then Tony Muncher. Then Joey here came, and he managed to trick us all thinking that we were dead, then he merged us all with stuff then, turned Earth back in time. If we defeat him then who will appear?"</p> <p>Lamont said, "We have no choice, he has to be defeated." Lamont ran over to Jamie Pounds and helped her out of the rubble.</p> <p>Jamie smiled and said, "Thanks."</p> <p>Lamont blushed and said, "No big deal."</p> <p>They helped Jessica, Kevin, Brian and Chris out of the rubble too.</p> <p>Kevin said, "Now what?"</p> <p>Just then several robots appeared, and said, "Master Joseph requires that Crystal."</p> <p>Chris said, "To bad he isn't going to get it."</p> <p>Just then the Merger Crystal started to glow, and it floated into Lamont's hands.</p> <p>Lamont said, "We can use the Merger Crystal to destroy the Mergerbots."</p> <p>Just then Joseph and Danny's voice said, "You can use the Merger Crystal as a weapon, but you may also use it as a source of power." All of a sudden the Chamber rebuilt its self.</p> <p>The Mergerbots said, "What is that?"</p> <p>Then the Merger Crystal started to glow. The top part of it glowed Red, while the bottom part glowed Green. Each of the Four Corners glowed a different color. There was Black, Pink, Blue and Yellow. While the core glowed White. Then the Merger Crystal separated into seven crystals, and one landed in each of the Ranger's hand.</p> <p>Jessica said, "I guess it's time we took our fight to the next level."</p> <p>Lamont held the White Merger Crystal above his head and said, "Ready guys?"</p> <p>Everybody said, "Ya!"</p> <p>Lamont said, "It's Morphing Time!"</p> <p>All of the Rangers held their crystals above their heads.</p> <p>Lamont Stewart said, "White Merger Power!" The crystal started to glow and enveloped Lamont in the light. When the light faded, there stood the White Merger Ranger.</p> <p>Brad Bergman said, "Green Merger Power!" The crystal started to glow and enveloped Brad in the light. When the light faded, there stood the Green Merger Ranger.</p> <p>Kevin Kucharski said, "Black Merger Power!" The crystal started to glow and enveloped Kevin in the light. When the light faded, there stood the Black Merger Ranger.</p> <p>Jamie Pounds said, "Pink Merger Power!" The crystal started to glow and enveloped Jamie in the light. When the light faded, there stood the Pink Merger Ranger.</p> <p>Brian Hicks said, "Blue Merger Power!" The crystal started to glow and enveloped Brian in the light. When the light faded, there stood the Blue Merger Ranger.</p> <p>Jessica Whitby said, "Yellow Merger Power!" The crystal started to glow and enveloped Jessica in the light. When the light faded, there stood the Yellow Merger Ranger.</p> <p>Chris Leis said, "Red Merger Power!" The crystal started to glow and enveloped Chris in the light. When the light faded, there stood the Red Merger Ranger.</p> <p>There costumes looked just like those that the Rangers from the In Space Saga. Except they had Morphers on their belts just like the Original Rangers had. But instead of a Power Coin, each one held a Crystal.</p> <p>Lamont/White Merger Ranger said, "Mergerbots meet the Merger Rangers."</p> <p>Brian said, "The tide of power has turned."</p> <p><center>~*~</center></p> <p>Meanwhile, Joseph was watching the battle. He said, "So the power of the Merger Crystals have finally been unleashed."</p> <p>Just then a voice said, "You must destroy them."</p> <p>Joseph held his head in pain and said, "Stop bugging me!"</p> <p>The voice said, "You must destroy the Past."</p> <p>Joseph put his hands down and looked up. His eyes were glowing Black. He said, "I must destroy the Past. I will not fail you master."</p> <b> <p><center>~*~</center></p> <p>Narrator:</b> <i>Do the Merger Rangers have the Power to defeat the Mergerbots? And who is the voice?
