Thirty-four: Time (post "Inner Strength")
It was a stormy afternoon in Briarwood. By 'coincidence' (ie., Chip charming the work schedule so that his afternoon off would be later in the week) Nick and Madison had the afternoon off. Now the 'rest' was up to them.
Nick, surprisingly, took the first step. The pair of Rangers were at the door of the Rock Porium when he offered, "Hey, Maddie. It's coming down pretty hard- want to share my umbrella?"
Madison glanced down at her blue raincoat. "Well, okay. Thanks, Nick."
Leading the way the duo left. And the remaining three Rangers exhaled in relief.
Strolling down the sidewalk Nick wondered, "Do you want to go home?"
"Mm, I wouldn't know what to do with myself."
"Well… we could scope out the competition. Walk around and see what other record and music stores are doing to get customers."
"I think-" Madison cut herself off. She had been about to tell Nick that Vida knew all about Briarwood's music scene. But well, it couldn't hurt for them to learn about the other music stores. Besides, she'd get to spend time with Nick. Looking up at his hopeful face she stated firmly, "I think that's a great idea."
Smiling Nick resumed walking, Madison keeping up with him. Her hands in her raincoat's pockets she suggested, "Should we have a plan?"
"Nah," Nick shook his head, gazing out at the rainy road. "It's just looking around, really."
"Oh," she blushed. Hastily Nick assured her, "It's a good idea, but it's a rainy day. We really shouldn't be doing much of anything."
She smiled shyly at him, thinking: This isn't much of anything since I'm with you.
Searching her face Nick quietly said, "So, ready?"
"So am I."
And the Red and Blue Mystic Rangers walked through rainy Briarwood under the indigo umbrella.
