004 First

Ryan was quietly relieved when they reached the clearing where Rootcore stood; he hadn’t been sure he remembered the way. The clearing was empty apart from a man approaching middle age, practising sword forms.

“Excuse me, sir,” Carter said politely. “Is Leelee here? Or Nick?”

“Who are you?”

“Carter Grayson.” He held up his morpher.

“From the field.” The man eyed them before turning away. “Bowen!”

“Nick,” Ryan murmured to Carter and Dana.

Nick ducked out of what looked like a solid tree, blinking in surprise. “Ryan. Hey, man. We were getting ready to come see you.”

“She did do it, then.” Ryan gestured vaguely towards Nick’s belt. “That one talk to you too?”

Nick glanced down at the Staff. “No. This is the Fire Staff.”

“Are you a Ranger?” Carter asked.

Ryan shook his head. “That’s not morphing energy.”

“No. If these things were working I’d be Red Ranger.”

“First and strongest,” the man said, apparently to himself.

Nick threw him an annoyed look, continuing, “But they’re basically very heavy symbols. Phineas says all the magical creatures will rally when they see us.”

“Your friends?” Carter glanced at the tree.

“Yeah. Weird, huh? Udonna thinks our—“ He gestured vaguely. “Innate magic might have pulled us together.”

“Where’s Zoe?” Dana asked.

Nick made a face. “Hiding in town with a friend of ours. Clare didn’t think it’d be safe here, and she wanted to stay there rather than with you. If things get bad, we’ll get her to you.”

Carter nodded. “We’ll be evacuating anyway. Ms Fairweather’s ready to bring down the field.”

Nick hesitated. “Let me get Xander. We’re talking strategy, he needs to be in on it.” Visibly steeling himself, he added, “Leanbow?”

“Yes, son,” the man said.

Nick scowled, but his voice was even and calm when he said, “Join us?”

“Certainly.”

“Get Leelee, too,” Ryan suggested. “She knows her mom better than anyone.”

Nick nodded, disappearing back into the tree.
