Sarah was sitting on the couch and watching the news. The girl kept flipping through the channels hoping to see something about the object the girl had fought, but like the space ship that crashed into the barn weeks ago, there was nothing.
“Hmm…” Sarah said, spotting another news report about a Viridian Ranger sighting. “Least I’m getting some attention.” The girl muttered, aloud.
“You sure are.” Tara said, stepping into the living room. “You shouldn’t watch the news just to find stories about you.”
“I’m not.” Sarah said, shaking her head. “Listen. When I was flying just a few hours ago I was attacked.”
“A jet?” Tara asked.
“No… This was different.” Sarah said, jumping to her feet. “This thing was really short compared to a jet. It had lasers and tentacles!”
Tara furrowed her eyebrows. “That thing attacked you?” The girl asked.
“Yeah.” Sarah said, nodding. “I was just hoping there would be something about it on the news. Maybe the government decided to take me down.”
“Why would you think that?” Tara asked.
“Jealous of me.” Sarah said.
Tara laughed. “Maybe, but I don’t think they would attack you.” Tara said, but she didn’t really know. The two girls stood in silence for a moment watching the news. Besides sightings of Viridian Ranger and the weather nothing was mentioned about an attack. “You know…” Tara began.
“What?” Sarah asked.
“It could be… Aliens.” Tara offered.
Sarah nodded. “I hate to admit it, but I never thought that.” The girl said, running her fingers through her hair.
“Just be careful, ok?” Tara said, touching Sarah’s shoulder.
“I will be.” Sarah said, nodding. “I promise I will.”
A few days later Sarah was walking through the city with her sister. The girls had just finished eating at a restaurant. They were going to head to the super market and then go their separate ways. Sarah wanted to spend time with her friends and Tara had to go to work.
“How long are you working today?” Sarah asked.
“I’ll be there for a few hours.” Tara said. “What about you? What’s your plans with your friends?” The girl asked.
“Were going to watch some TV. Maybe go out and get hit on by some boys.” Sarah said, smiling.
“You better not…” Tara said, looking at her sister out of the corners of her eyes. “You’re not allowed to have a boyfriend until I get one.”
“You don’t like boys though.” Sarah said. “That’s why they don’t talk to you.”
“HEY!” Tara cried, grabbing Sarah’s sides and tickling. Sarah laughed and pulled away from her sister.
“Hey!” Sarah cried, hugging her sides. “Don’t tickle me…”
“Guys talk to me all the time!” Tara giggled, poking Sarah playfully in the ribs.
Sarah yelped. “Sorry!” The girl smiled warmly. “I’ll never say it again.”
“You better not. I’ll hogtie you next time.” Tara warned.
“The frightening thing is I know your serious.” Sarah said.
Screams suddenly erupted and people started to run. Sarah and Tara halted in their tracks as dozens of people ran past. Sarah and Tara gasped when they saw a large, white van flying through the air and slam into a building. The impact was incredible. The van slammed into the street and the debris from the building struck the ground.
“Get out of here.” Sarah whispered to Tara as the girl ran down an alleyway. When the girl was out of sight of everyone the girl reached into her pocket and removed the white, circular device. Activating her Viridian Ranger outfit the girl was soon flying through the streets of the city.
The girl halted in midair when she spotted a huge robot roaming down the street. The robot looked like a metallic spider, but it had two extra legs. The robot also had several missile pods located near it’s head and several cannons poking out of it’s back.
The creature lifted its backside the moment it saw Sarah. Pointing its cannons at the girl it fired four beams of energy at the girl. Sarah activated her shields, but the blast was so powerful that the girl was thrown backwards.
Sarah realigned herself and threw several blue orbs at the cannons. The orbs slammed into them destroying them utterly.
The robot roared a mechanical roar and then lifted four of its legs and pointed them at Sarah. Suddenly the tips of the legs shot out at the girl. The tips were connected to a long, metallic cord that vanished into the legs. Sarah activated her shield again, but to her surprise the tips passed through the shield.
Just as the tips were about to collide with the girl’s body they opened and attached themselves to her limbs.
“OH!” Sarah cried out in surprise. “CRAP!”
The mechanical spider retracted the tips and soon the girl was hanging from the robot. The robot lifted another leg and aimed the tip at Sarah’s head. This time the robot didn’t fire the tip at the girl, instead it reached for the circular device located in the middle of Sarah’s helmet.
Sarah struggled to escape, but the robot was too powerful for her. “LET… GO!” Sarah cried, through clenched teeth. No matter how hard the girl pulled and tugged on her binds she just couldn’t escape.
The tip of the robot’s leg was now a few inches away. “COME ON!” Sarah roared.
Sarah activated her shield. Like before the tips past through, but a portion of the shield smashed into the robot’s head, crushing it slightly. The robot’s grip on Sarah loosened and the girl was able to break free. Sarah drew back her left hand and slammed it into the robot’s head. The robot roared and took several feet back, but Sarah refused to let it escape. The girl flew forwards and continued to pelt it with punches and kicks.
Sarah folded her hands together and lifted it over her head. She then brought her fists down like a hammer and smashed the top of the robots head as hard as she could. The impact left a large dent in the metal. The girl then slammed her fists into the side of the robot’s head three times before twirling in mid-air and kicking it in the bottom of the head.
The impact was so powerful the robot spider was sent reeling backwards. It bounced several times along the road before coming to a rest several yards away.
Sarah took several deep breaths. She watched angrily as the spider aimed the missile pods at her. “Think that will help you?” She asked.
The spider robot fired several small missiles. Sarah flew backwards and threw several blue orbs at them. The orbs smashed into the missiles, destroying them utterly. To the girl’s surprise the missile’s didn’t explode as the blue orbs smashed into them.
After the robot fired the last of it’s missiles it aimed it’s legs at the girl once more. Sarah smirked. Aiming the palm of her hands at the robot she fired a steady stream of energy at the mechanical spider. The energy beam enveloped the robot and when the beam vanished the robot was gone.
People who stuck around to witness the fight began cheering and clapping their hands happily. Sarah blushed and nervously rubbed the back of her head. “Thank you!” She cried. “Remember who I am?” The girl asked, putting her hands on her hips. “I’m Viridian Ranger!” And with that she flew high into the air and vanished into a cloud.
Dozens of people had witnessed the amazing battle, but one girl had witnessed a little more. She spotted two brunettes talking before the robot attacked the city. She saw the short haired brunette vanish into an alleyway and soon Viridian Ranger appeared. The girl didn’t know the names of the girls, but swore she would find out.
Carol reported her failure to captain Kelly and soon afterwards she found herself bound to a table, surrounded by other space pirates. The girl’s hands had been bound over her head by metallic cuffs. Her feet were incased in a pair of metallic stocks with her toes tied back with pieces of string.
“You do know why you’re here right?” Kelly asked, taking a seat in front of the table Carol was bound to.
Carol sighed deeply and nodded her head. “I failed ma’am.” The girl said.
“That’s right. And for one hour these lovely ladies are going to tickle you, but before they get started I want to ask you something.” Kelly began, leaning back in her chair. “Why do you think you keep failing?”
Carol cleared her throat. “Viridian Ranger’s too powerful.” The girl said.
“Viridian Ranger?” Kelly asked.
“That’s what people are calling her. I overhead them while trying to draw Viridian Ranger out.” Carol said.
“Her… So a girl activated the weapon, huh?” Kelly said, blushing. “Girls are usually ticklish, right?” She began. “What are your thoughts on the subject?”
Carol shook her head. “I don’t have any.”
“That’s no fun.” Kelly said, sighing deeply. “I love talking to ticklish girls about other ticklish girls. Well I assume she will be.” Kelly looked at each of the space pirates and then nodded.
The space pirates reached for Carol’s ticklish body and began torturing it. Carol screamed with ticklish laughter and tried to pull away from their tickling fingers, but her binds only allowed her to go so far.
Two space pirates were making short work of the girl’s underarms and ribs. With their left hands they were scratching the girl’s pits mercilessly. Their nails were gliding over the tender hollows. Their right hands were poking and squeezing the girl’s ribs. Every once in a while they were rake their fingers wildly over the girl’s ribs sending her into hysterics.
One pirate was attacking Carol’s sides and belly. The girl was tickling Carol’s sides mercilessly. Her fingers poked and tweaked them and then attacked the girl’s belly. She focused several minutes on attacking the muscles in Carol’s quivering belly before reaching under her shirt and attacking her bellybutton. The girl raked her index finger around it and then dug her nail into the navel. There she began tickling the side of the navel and poking the middle mercilessly.
One pirate was teasing Carol’s thighs and knees. She kept squeezing both of Carol’s thighs mercilessly before tweaking her knees. The girl then reached underneath Carol’s legs and slowly began dragging her nails over her thighs.
And finally two space pirates were tickling Carol’s helpless feet. They were raking their nails up and down her bare soles, scratching her heels mercilessly, teasing her arches and playing with the tips of the girl’s toes. One girl even dug her index finger between each of the girl’s bound toes, giving the skin between a quick tickle before moving on.
Carol was writhing in ticklish agony. All she could do was focus on the torture she was forced to endure.
“P-PLEASE… CAPTAIN!” Carol cried, her chest was heaving and her body was shaking violently.
“Sorry Carol.” Kelly said, shaking her head.
“PLEASE CAPTAIN!” Carol cried louder.
“I said no.” Kelly said, getting to her feet. “You’ve disobeyed me again. You were ordered to recapture the device, each time you’ve failed. You must be taught a lesson.” The girl said, slowly making her way around Carol’s helpless body. “If these other girls had failed they would be in the same position you are now. If I failed I would expect punishment. And I have been punished before.”
“B-BUT!” Carol cried.
Kelly smirked. “Stop for a moment.” She ordered. Instantly all the space pirates halted their torture. “Speak your mind.” Kelly said.
Carol took several deep breaths. “It… It shouldn’t just be my responsibility.”
“Why’s that?” Kelly asked.
“Because… Were all apart of this crew, right? I need help.” Carol said. The girl bit her lower lip. The girl hated going after the Viridian Ranger. She hated being a pirate and she hated talking to the other space pirates and her captain like she really wanted to be apart of the crew. All she wanted to do was go back home.
Kelly laughed. “Wow… I didn’t think I would ever hear you say that… As a reward I’ll cut your punishment time by forty minutes. So with the time that’s already passed you have about fourteen minutes worth of punishment left.” Kelly said. “After that we’ll go after this Viridian Ranger together.”
Carol nodded, but secretly wished the punishment would have been dropped altogether.
“Continue the punishment then everyone meet me on the bridge.” Kelly ordered. The space pirates nodded and then began tickling Carol’s helpless body once more.
