New Thundercats: When Days Turn To Nights
By Jesse Morgan
Pumyra didn't sleep allnight. She sat on Bengali's
couch, expecting him to open the door. She held one of his pillows
close to her body, smelling the cologne he wore. *Oh Bengali please
come home*. She sat up for several hours before drifting to sleep on
the couch. Night was swept into morning and she still laid sleep on his
couch. Bengali walked up the stairs to his apartment. His mind was
doing flips and he couldn't concentrate on anything. He took his keys
from his pocket and opened the door to his apartment. He entered into
the dark place. He stubbled over a few things before finding the light
switch. The lighrs came on and he saw Pumyra laying silently on his
couch. How he wanted to comfort her but he knew her life wouldn't be
ruined for the mistake they made. He wished it could be simple but it
wasn't. He had no idea what to say to her, to comfort her. He couldn't
even believe that there was a life growing in her stomach, something he
and she created. He walked passed the couch heading for his room. He
stopped, that was the room. It was the room that started this whole
mess. He couldn't even enter his own room. He went to the closet and
pulled out some covers. He walked back to the living room where Pumyra
was sleeping. He placed one of the covers over her and sat in a chair
next to the couch. He put his head in his hands and thought. *Why me?*
he said to himself.
He heard a slight moan and looked up. Pumyra
was waking up and Bengali still didn't know what to say to her. She
lifted her head up and looked around. There she saw Bengali sitting in
the chair. She quickly got up and hugged him tightly. "Oh thank Jaga
you are alive Bengali" she said. He carefully put his hands around her.
He held her just as closely as she was holding him. Then he pulled her
off of him, not wanting to but he had to. "Pumyra we have to talk" he
said. She slowly sat down on the couch. She knew this was coming but
she didn't want it to. She had always felt that her and Bengali's
relationship was like a dream, it would never face reality. Now she was
having to. "I am not sure what to do about this baby" he said. "I am
not mentally and probably not close to being financly ready to take care
of a child. Don't get me wrong but I love you so much and I am happy
that we created a life together but..." before he could finish Pumyra
stood and walked to the window. She gazed out at the streets. She saw
all kinds of people walking, laughing and talking. She wished that she
could be one of them. "I won't do it Bengali!" she said. He stood and
walked towards her. "Do what?" he said. "I won't get rid of this baby.
It shouldn't have to pay for our mistake. No matter what you say I
won't do it"! she said. Tears startedto trickle down her face. "NO!"
he said. "I wouldn't want you to get rid of the child". He put his
hands on her shoulder. She moved away. "Does anyone else know about
this" he questioned. "No, this is our problem not anyone elses" Pumyra
said as she went to sit backon the couch. She began to cry quietly,
thunking of all the pain she would cause. "Whay am I going to tell my
dad?" Bengali said. "I don't know but I have to worry about my own
parents" Pumyra said. He walked back over to her and whipped the tears
from her face. He kissed her lightly on her cheek. She moved in closer
to him, laying her head on his shoulder.
"So what are we going to do now?" he said as
he caressed her hair. "I have a doctor's appointment soon and you can
come with me if you choose" Pumyra said. Bengali looked at her
lovingly. "Sure I will" he said. He stood to his feet and helped her
up. As he was walking to get his keys, the phone rang. Pumyra picked
it up and said "Hello?". "Pumyra, come dowtown right away!" Tygra said.
"Sure Tygra, we'll be right there" she said as she hanged up the phone.
"BENGALI!" she called for him. He came running to her. "What is it?"
he said. "We have to get downtown. Tygra needs us" she said. They
quickly rushed out of Bengali's apartment.
They rushed downtown to where they saw panic
in the streets. All they could see was a bunch of shadow men attacking
people. They were huge shadows and they were causing a blackout all
downtown. Bengali and Pumyra pushed through the crowd and spotted Tygra
and Cheetara. They ran to them. "What's going on!" Bengali said to
Tygra. Tygra turned towards him and said "It's chaos. We were going to
lunch when we saw all of these people running. Then we spotted these
shadows. We have to stop these creatures before the destroy the whole
city!". Cheetara heard her cell phone ring and she answered it.
"Hello" she said. It aws Wily Kit. She said "Cheetara, there is chaos
going on here at the college. Me and Lynx-o, Catlani and Wily Kat are
trying to stop it but people are going crazy!". "The same is going on
here downtown. Get in contact with Lion-o and we will get in contact
with Panthro" she said. Wily Kit agreeded and they both hung up. "We
have to transform and find Panthro" she said. "Right!" Tygra said.
"FREEZING CHEETAH TRANSFORM!". Soon Cheetara was changed into her
Thundercat uniform. "WHITE SKY TIGER TRANSFORM!" Bengali said. He was
soon transformed into his Thundercat uniform. "RAGING FIRE TIGER
TRANSFORM!" he said. He was soon transformed into his Thundercat
uniform. "SWIFT TIME PUMA TRANSFORM!" Pumyra said. As the others, she
was transformed into her Thundercat uniform. "Bengali and me will go to
find Panthro. You two fight these guys off until we get back!" Cheetara
said. She quickly speeded off. "But Pumyra what about" he was cut as
Pumyra kissed him passionately on the lips. "Just go and get Panthro
okay" she said. Bengali shook his head yes and ran off.
"BLAZING TIGER WHIP!" Tygra said as he swung
his whip towards one of the shadows. Fireballs emerge from the bolas on
his whip. The fireballs hit the shadow but had no effect on it.
"WHAT!" Tygra said in surprise. Pumyra swung her sling in the air. She
said "NIGHTSHADE ORB SPLIT!". She hurled an orb from her sling into the
air. It exploded and caused hurricane winds to blow everywhere. Things
flew everywhere and some of the shadowmen fell down. She ran to Tygra's
side. "What do we do Tygra? We can't fight them by ourselves!" she
said. "I don't know but we have to keep on fighting" Tygra said. He
swung his whip and said "BOLA FIREBALLS FLARE UP!". Fire flared up
around him and spread everywhere. The streets were raged in an inferno
and people scattered. "Tygra we have to be careful of the people!"
Pumyra said as she tried to fight off more of the shadows. "I
understand but how can we" Tygra said. "By the gates of Thundera, we
shall. DEAD ORB SLING!" Pumyra cried. She swung her sling as the orb
began to glow bright pink. She let the orb fly and it began to get
larger as it approached some of the shadows. It hit some of the shadows
but once again it had no affect on them. Pumyra pulled two more orbs
from her puch and placed both of them in her sling. She swung them in
the air and said "TIME ORBS SCREAM!". She let them go and the shrieked
as they headed for the shdows. The waves of sounds shattered buildings
and tore up the streets. They hit two shadows and destroyed them.
Tygra pulled his whip to the sky but a shadow knocked him off his feet.
Tygra slide across the ground in pain. He tried to stand but another
shadow approached him. "IRON OAK CRUSHER!" was heard as that shadow was
destroyed. Tygra turned around to see Panthro, Cheetara and Bengali
Panthro helped Tygra up as Bengali reached for
his hammer. He shot two lasers that caught a shadow off guard. The
shadow charged him and Bengali raised him hammer up. He said "SPACE AND
SKY QUAKE!". He slammed the hammer to the ground, which caused tremors
to head towards the shadow. The tremors shttered the shadow. "Where's
Pumyra!" he asid in a rage. Pumyra emerged from all the smoke and
Bengali smiled. Cheetara said "COLD WINTER TWIRL!" and spun around
quickly in a circle. Frost and mist flew from her as she spun around
faster. The ice froze one of the shadows just as another one came
behind her. He hit her hard and she feel to the ground. She grabbed
her head in pain. Tygra grabbed his whip and said "RAGING INFERNO!".
His whip flamed up and he threw millions of fireballs at the shadow.
The shadow caught fire and exploded. Tygra collapsed to his knees in
pain from all the fighting. "We are out numbered!" Panthro said.
Soon a man emerged from all the chaos. He
raised his hand up and all of the shadows quit fighting. "I am Red Eye,
third messenger of Mumm-ra. You have failed to deafeat my shadows so
now you shall fail to defeat me. I shall be the one to destroy the
Thundercats!" he said. He wore a red visor and adjusted it to see all
of the Thundercats. He pulled a small disc from the center of his chest
and hurled it at the Thundercats. They all did their best to dodge it.
Bengali pulled a small pellet from his hammer's handle and threw it to
the air. He said "SPACE SHOCKWAVE!" and smashed the pellet with his
hammer. It caused a catstrophe of light to take over the area. All the
light smashed buildings and caused the grouns to quake. Red Eye adjuted
his visor again to see all the quakes and dodged them all. Panthro
swung his nunchuks around and said "OAK GROUNDS QUAKE WITH FEAR!".
Bolts of lightining flew from his nunchuks towards Red Eye. Red Eye
adjusted his visor again to see the blots more cleary. With a quick
move of ease he dodged all of the bolts. He then shot several missles
from his chest. The missles headed towards Bengali. He had not ime to
move and no chance. Pumyra swung her sling and said "DARK ETERNAL TIME
GATES CLOSE!". She threw an orb to the sky and all times stopped for a
few seconds. The only ones moving were Pumyra and Bengali. Bengali
qucikly moved and Pumyra fell to the ground. Time began once again and
the missles exploded, casuing a building to collapes. Red Eye laughed
as he saw Pumyra laying on the ground.
Bengali clenched his chest, trying to get
to Pumyra. Several shadows approached him until they heard "SOUL
SILENCE PELLET!". A pellet came flying and cracked open. Small ribbons
shot from it and sliced all through one of the shadows. Red Eye looked
to where the pellet came from. There standing was Wily Kat, Wily Kit,
Lynx-o, Catlani and Lion-o. "WHAT?! More Thundercats to battle!".
"That's right! You are a foolish lackie of Mumm-ra and we will destroy
you!" Lion-o said as he held up the Sword Of Omens. All of the
Thundercats spread out and began to battle all of the shadows. "SEA
ARROW WAVE SMASH!" Catlani said as she shot a blue arrow at a shadow.
The arrow turned into water and crushed the shadow under it's waves.
Lynx-o removed a disc from his wristband and said "SHADOW ILLUSIONS!".
Soon he was surrounded by shadows that were similair to him. They all
attacked one of the shadows and destroyed it. Bengali stood to his eet
slowly. "PUM..y...r...a..." he said as he tried to walk to her. She
did not move. Tygra stood to his feet and twirled his whip. His lips
begin to form words but he was soon attacked by a shadow. The shadow
knocked him into the fallen down building. Panthro hurled his nunchuks
in front of him and said "BLACK LIGHTING SLICE!". A bolt of black
lighininh shot from one of his nunchuks and hit a shadow. It shadow
exploded, causing chaos all around.
Will Kit helped Cheetara up and they both faught
off some of the shadows. "What took you guys so long" Cheetara said as
she hit a shadow with her staff. "We had our own problems!" Wily Kit
said as she threw a pellet at one of the shadows. "I am getting tired
of this petty fighting. THUNDERA MOON SPLIT!" she said as she threw a
pellet to the sky. The pellet split into many more pellets and they all
exploded. Chaos filled the streets. Lion-o faught through several
shadows to get to Red Eye. He raised his sword up and said "MIGHTY
THUNDER STRIKE!". The sword glew golden and he spun around really fast.
He stopped spinning and the clouds turned black. A bolt of lighting
came from the sky and filled the sword. Lion-o pointed the sword at Red
Eye and it let out a stream of bolts at Red Eye. Red Eye tried to dodge
them all but he couldn't. He was soon disengrated into nothing but his
red visor laying upon the ground. All of the shadows disappeared and
the Thundercats felt relief. Lion-o looked around as he saw that all of
downtwon laid in ruins. "What has happened?" he said. Cheetara
approached him. "It's chaos and I think that is what Mumm-ra wanted"
she said. Wily Kit and Wily Kat helped the injured Tygra out of the
wreckage. He grabbed his head and looked around. "What is going?" he
said. Panthro helped Bengali up and helped him walk over near Lynx-o.
Lynx-o was holding Pumyra close to himself. Bengali slowly bent down to
her. "Is she allright?' he said. "I do not know but the ambulance is
on the way" Lynx-o said. "I think you should all know that Pumyra is
pregnant. It is my baby and I plan to take full responsibility" Bengali
said. All the Thundercats stood in amazement. The heard sirens as the
ambulance approached them. They placed Pumyra on the stretcher and
Bengali got into the vehicle with Pumyra.
The next day Bengali woke up with his
girlfriend in his arms. He was thankful that she had only gotten a
minor head injury after using her forbidden power. He held her closely
as she woke up. "Wow, I din't expect to be here Bengali" she said.
"Well you feel asleep in my arms last ngith" he said. "I am happy the
doctor said my baby wasn't hurt" Pumyra said as she slowly sat up. She
grabbed her head in pain. "Are you allright?" Bengali said as he helped
her. "Yeah just still a little woozy" she said. bengali kissed her on
the forehead as he arose from his bed. He walked over to his dresser
and pulled something out. Pumyra pulled the covers on her and watched
as he came back. "I have something for you" Bengali said. "Well what
is it?" she asked. He handed her a small navy blue box. She opened it
slowly and saw a small ring with a diamond chipped heart in the middle.
Bengali got down on one knee and tears began to slide down Pumyra's
face. He handed her a rose and a small bag. She opened the bag and
pulled a rattle put of it. Bengali took her hand and slipped the ring
on her ring finger. "Pumyra I love you more than anything. I am not
sure I am or will ever be ready for the responsibilty of being a father
but I know I love you and we would make perfect parents. So I am asking
you to marry, not out of obligation but out of pure love for you. Will
you?' he said. Pumyra whipped the tears from her eyes and said "YES!".
She got off the bed and hugged him. He kissed her slowly on the lips,
making the moment last. He stopped kissing her and slipped his hand to
her stomach. He touched it in amazement. "I still can't believe that
we cerated this" Bengali said. "We did and we will make the best
parents to our baby" she said. She kissed him on the cheeks and they
held each other.
