013 A Real Big Problem

Vida came back almost two hours later, slipping through the gap Xander had left in the barricade. Maddie scrambled across the floor to hug her, shaking.

“Hey, sis, calm down. I’m alright. I had quite a night. But I’m ok.” She looked over Maddie’s shoulder. “Where’s Chip?”

“He’s alright. Where’ve you been?” Xander asked.

“I followed the Rangers. That monster let them leave town, but then this barrier went up. You can kind of see through it, but it stops anything from getting through. I’m pretty sure it goes all the way around town.”

“That’s going to be a problem,” Toby said thoughtfully.

“A real big problem,” Xander agreed grimly. “If we can’t get out, the Rangers can’t get in…and neither can supplies.”

“The Rangers’ll be back,” Chip said groggily. Maddie finally let go of Vida, crossing to sit next to him.

“Hey, Chip. You ok?” Vida asked.

“Bit sore. I’ll live.”

“Good. You had me worried.”

“Sorry. Next time I’ll try and avoid the tree.”

“Avoid the whole explosion instead.” She turned to Xander, smile dropping. “There’s something gonna happen tomor…this morning. They’re swarming all over the square.”

“We’ll take it as it comes. Vee, don’t ever do that again, ok? I can’t handle you going missing too.”

“Yeah. I’ll be careful,” she promised.

So THAT'S where she went. Smart girl. And I like that you didn't forget that about her. <3

Re: Vida!
Also did you notice the quote lifted straight from the show? I managed to get four or five quotes in through the whole series, and one of them's in this chapter!

Re: Vida!
You know, I think I did. It's the 'I had quite a night' line, right? I thought it sounded familiar, and now that you've said there's a quote in here... That's from the 'Vida is a vampire' episode, right?

Re: Vida!
Yep! From the scene where she tells the Rangers she's killed Necrolai and then tries to posion them with apples. And Chip figures it out! Good old Chip. :D

Re: Vida!
Thank god for Chip, eh? I love how they did that in the show (and you kept it here in the story too), where Chip always seems like the flightly weird one, but he's usually got these unexpected insights into things thanks to his interests.
