In the dungeon of an old castle outside of Megawatt City.
“I have devised a plan to get rid of the Swat Kats once and for all, but I need your help,” Dark Kat said.
“Of course I will help you if it means getting rid of the Swat Kats. What is your plan?” the Pastmaster asked.
“If you brought something the Swat Kats couldn’t beat and small enough to fit in here, could you control it?” Dark Kat asked.
“Yes, of course,” the Pastmaster answered.
“Good, Good,” declared Dark Kat.
“Will you tell me your plan now?” asked the Pastmaster.
“Easy, we kidnap someone we know the Swat Kats will try to rescue. We then have your monster from the past take them down and get their glovatrix’ away. Then, we shove them in this cage here and torture them” Dark Kat told the Pastmaster, very satisfied with his plan.
“I’ve got the perfect thing,” the Pastmaster said, using his watch to open up a time portal. A few minutes later, the Pastmaster returned with five Utahraptors.
“Oh yes, very nice. Now, who to kidnap…,” Dark Kat wondered.
“Callie,” the Pastmaster suggested.
“NO, I couldn’t put up with her whining for days,” Dark Kat said angrily.
“Then who?” the Pastmaster asked.
“Felina” Dark Kat told him.
“How do you think you can kidnap her?” the Pastmaster asked.
“Easy, tomorrow night she’s going on a date with Steele, and Steele will do anything for the right amount of money,” Dark Kat finished.
“Ha Ha Ha,” the Pastmaster started laughing.
Dark Kat joined in. They were happy about their plan. They figured it would work just great.The Next Night
Felina was with Steele in his car as he drove her home from their date.
‘Never again am I going on a date with him. He’s been trying to get me in bed all night. I can’t believe I was this desperate,’ Felina thought as they pulled into her driveway.
“I’ll walk you to your door,” Steele said.
“No, that’s ok – I can make it” Felina said, getting out and shutting the door.
“Ok, bye then,” Steele said, throwing the car into reverse. He pulled out of the driveway, squealing tires.
‘That was odd I thought he would have followed me in.’ Felina wondered what he was up to as she walked to her door. Felina got to her door and got out her keys, when the door opened from the inside. She pulled out her gun, which she always carried with her. At first, she thought it might be her uncle, then she remembered he was working.
It took her by surprise when the Pastmaster walked out of her house. In fact, she was so surprised she didn’t see or hear Dark Kat come up behind her. She did, however, feel something hard hit her in the back of the head.
The Swat Kat Hanger
“We have to get this done today, Chance,” Jake said.
“I know that, and I plan on getting the fuel log fixed in the TurboKat today,” Chance said, sounding impatient.
“Ok, but you know until you get it fixed it won’t be flying,” Jake told Chance.
“Jake, you little….,” Chance started to answer when their emergency phone went off.
“Hold that thought,” Jake said, running to get the phone. “Yes Miss Briggs?” Jake answered.
“Razor, I have a letter from Dark Kat addressed to the Swat Kats,” Callie told him.
“Ok, we’ll be right over to get it,” Razor said, hanging up.
“We’ll have to take the Cyclotron because I haven’t finished the jet yet,” Chance told Jake, putting on the Swat Kat outfit.
“It could be a trap – who knows what Dark Kat has planned” Razor informed his partner.
“Could be, but we can’t take the risk of not reading the letter,” T-Bone said, climbing on the Cyclotron.
Razor got on behind him, and they drove to Callie’s office.
“I’m glad you guys could make it. Dark Kat didn’t know who to mail it to, I guess. So, he figured I could give it to you. I don’t like the idea of him knowing where I am,” Callie said.
“Callie, he knows you work for the mayor, so I think he figured he’d mail it to your work place,” Razor said.
“Oh yeah, good point,” Callie answered. “I don’t like this, guys, it could be a trap,” she finished, handing T-Bone the letter.
“Could be, but we do try to protect everyone in the city, and, if Dark Kat plans on doing something, we have to try and stop him,” Razor said.
T-Bone opened the letter and read it out loud.
Dear Swat Kats (Ha), I have Felina Feral, and, if you ever want to see her alive again, you will come to the old castle outside of town. You must come alone. If you’re not here by six, she dies. FROM: Dark Kat
“Oh my God, you guys have six hours. I’ll call Commander Feral right now and let him know,” Callie said, picking up the phone.
“No, he’ll kill her. We go by ourselves – no one knows about this. If we need back up, we’ll contact you and then you call the enforcers,” T-Bone told Callie.
“Ok, but be careful,” Callie said, hugging T-Bone and Razor.
“Let’s go – we need time to plan,” Razor said, heading out the door.
Back At The Castle
“Oww, my head,” Felina said aloud, rolling over on her side. “Hey!” she said, jumping up and running over to the door made of bars. “Why am I behind bars?!” Felina yelled.
“Don’t you know you’re here to help us get the Swat Kats?” Dark Kat said, coming into the dungeon.
“NO!! Never!!” Felina yelled, reaching for her gun.
“Missing something?” Dark Kat said, laughing.
“I will kill you, Dark Kat. Wait till I get my paws on you!” Felina yelled.
“Oh, I don’t think so…. unless you’re willing to take on five Utahraptors,” the Pastmaster said, stepping into the light followed by the raptors. “It’s almost six,” the Pastmaster said, looking at his watch.
“Right,’ Dark Kat said, unlocking her cage.
It was the biggest cage there. It could have held all of the raptors, but it made no difference to Felina. She wanted out. She ran out of the cage past one of the raptors only to be caught by another one. It carried her out to the front door and stood there, waiting for the Swat Kats. When it saw them coming, it put its razor sharp claw up to Felina’s throat.
“Well, hello there, Swat Kats,” Dark Kat said to them as they got off the cyclotron.
“Dark Kat, let her go,” T-Bone said, aiming his glovatrix at Dark Kat.
“Let her go or you die,” Razor said.
Felina didn’t have time to yell at them before the raptors were on them.
All of a sudden, there was a blur and the Swat Kat’s gloves and other weapons fell to the ground. They had been shredded off by the raptors. Two of the raptors had the Swat Kats held tight.
“Take them to the dungeon,” ordered the Pastmaster.
“Let me go!” Felina yelled as the raptor threw her into the cage.
“Before you throw them in, let’s unmask them and see who they really are,” the Pastmaster suggested, pointing at the Swat Kats.
‘No!’ T-Bone and Razor thought. How could this be happening! ‘If they ever found out who we are, we could easily be killed. Or hunted down by the enforcers.’
Felina thought the same thing.
“No, you can’t!!!” Felina yelled, running at one of the raptors even though she knew it was hopeless.
The raptor turned around and hit her with its tail at a full swing. Felina flew through the air and slammed up against the back wall of the cage. She landed with a thud on the ground. She didn’t move.
“Felina!” the Swat Kats screamed and tried to get loose.
But, the raptors had a firm grip on the Swat Kats so they couldn’t go anywhere. The two other raptors slowly took off Razor and T-Bone’s helmets and masks.
“Look at this – if it isn’t the junkyard junkies,” Dark Kat said, laughing.
“Throw them in there with her,” the Pastmaster ordered his raptors. The Pastmaster locked the door and put two raptor guards by the door of the cage.
“Felina,” T-Bone cried, crawling over to her. “Felina,” he cried again, rolling her over onto her back and shaking her.
“Is she ok?’ Razor asked.
“I don’t know,” T-Bone answered.
T-Bone was worried about her; he knew she had hit the wall hard.
Felina slowly opened her eyes and looked up at T-Bone for the first time without his mask.
“Chance?” she asked, not sure that she was seeing right.
“Yeh, it’s me, T-Bone,” he said. He knew he had no choice but to tell her.
“Hey, are you ok?” Jake said, looking down at her.
“Jake?” Felina asked.
“Yep, I’m Razor,” he said.
Felina still couldn’t believe the two guys that worked in the junkyard were the Swat Kats.
“I’m ok,” Felina said, sitting up. She felt dizzy, so she started to lie back down.
Chance, not knowing why, put his arms behind her so he was holding her and keeping her from falling. “Are you sure you’re ok?” Chance asked.
“Yes, I think so – just a little dizzy, but I’ll be fine,” Felina said, standing up. As soon as she stood up, a wave of dizziness hit her and she started to fall. Chance grabbed her by the shoulders and held her up.
“Thanks,” Felina said. Felina didn’t know why, but she felt something warm inside of her when he had grabbed her.
“Felina, why don’t you sit down? What way you won’t fall,” Jake said.
“Ok,” she said.
Chance helped her down before he let her go. ‘Why do I have this weird feeling inside?’ Chance thought. ‘I mean, I never had it with Callie, even though I know I like her.’
“You guys should have never have come. I could have found my own way out,” Felina said. “Then, Dark Kat and the Pastmaster would have never found out who you really are,” she finished.
“I don’t think anybody could have gotten past those raptors,” Jake said.
“There has to be a way out though,” Chance said.
“Maybe, but not with the guards,” Jake said.
The Pastmaster walked back in.
“I need one of you,” he said to the guards.
“Pastmaster, you bastard!” Felina said, jumping up and running to the door of the cage.
“You will get what’s coming to you tomorrow,” the Pastmaster said.
“Hey, what is it you want?” Jake asked.
“You have us, so let Felina go,” Chance said.
“No, I kind of like having her around. Too bad Steele doesn’t,” the Pastmaster laughed.
“Steele was in on this?! I should have known!” Felina yelled. She couldn’t believe how bad her life had gotten lately. The only date she could get was Steele, and he didn’t even care about her.
“Yes, it is amazing what anyone will do for the right amount of money,” the Pastmaster laughed, walking out and leaving one guard behind to keep watch.
“Damn!” Felina yelled, kicking the bars.
“Hey, Felina, it’s ok. We’ll get out of here,” Chance said.
“No, we won’t get out of here – there is no way. And, no, I’ll never get someone to love me. Everyone is just like Steele – a total jerk!” Felina yelled.
‘Why did I just blurt that out? What’s wrong with me? I don’t have time for someone to love me,’ Felina thought.
“Felina, we will get out of here. And, I don’t know what’s going on in your love life, and, to be honest, I don’t care,” Chance said.
‘Ok, that was dumb. Why did I say I didn’t care.? Wait… What am I talking about? I don’t care! Do I?’ Chance wondered.
“Chance, my life sucks! Everything in my life centers around work. I have no time for someone, so I don’t care if you care or not!!!!” Felina yelled, kicking the bars again.
By this time, the raptor had gotten tired of hearing Felina yell and decided to do something. The raptor stuck its clawed hand through the bars and hit Felina across the head, knocking her back to the floor.
“Oww,” Felina said, sitting up. Her head hurt, so she brought her hand up to rub it. When she brought it back, there was blood all over it.
“You know, Felina, if you would have shut up, this wouldn’t have happened,” Chance said, coming over and sitting down in front of her.
“Ok, cool it,” Jake said.
Chance ripped off a piece of his shirt and started wiping the blood off Felina’s face. In the meantime, Jake took a long piece of his shirt and tied it around Felina’s forehead to keep it from bleeding some more.
Felina reached up and grabbed Chance’s paw. “Sorry I got upset. It’s just my life is so confusing,” Felina said.
“It’s ok. I shouldn’t have yelled either,” Chance said, giving her paw a squeeze before he let it go.
“Well, we might as well get some sleep,” Jake said, lying down.
“Goodnight,” Felina said, laying down a ways from the Swat Kats.
“Goodnight, Felina,” Jake and Chance said in unison.
Late that night, Chance woke up. He sat up and looked around. The guard was still there awake and alert. Chance saw Felina curled up in a ball. She looked like she was freezing. Chance didn’t know why, but he was starting to like her. He got up and walked over to her. He then took off his jacket and laid it across her.
‘What is wrong with me? Why did I just have the urge to kiss her cheek?’ Chance wondered as he went back and lay next to Jake.
The Next Morning
Felina woke up and found the jacket on her. She got up and found the Swat Kats already awake.
“Thanks,” she said, handing Chance back his jacket.
“No problem,” Chance said.
“Well, Well, Well, who should I torture first?” Dark Kat said, coming through the door.
“I wonder how the Swat Kats will function when one of them isn’t here anymore,” the Pastmaster said.
“Let’s see – let’s go with the easiest,” Dark Kat said, pointing at Jake.
“Get him,” the Pastmaster ordered his raptors.
Dark Kat unlocked the cage, and three of the raptors entered.
“Try to get away!” Felina yelled.
A raptor wrapped its tail around Felina, pinning her arms to her sides. It then lifted her off the ground and held her in the air. The other raptor grabbed Chance and held him still. Then, two raptors grabbed Jake by each arm and took him out of the cage. The raptors then dropped Chance and Felina and left, locking the cage behind them.
Razor aka Jake
I was carried down a long hall. I knew they would probably beat me to death then feed the raptors my body. I didn’t want to think about it.
They lead me to a large room. The raptor held my hands behind my back. Dark Kat came up to me and punched me hard in the stomach. Then, he punched my in the face. Man, I thought, my eye will be black if I live through this.
Dark Kat hit me again and again. I soon lost count. Then, I lost all feeling. I don’t know how long this had gone on, but, soon, I passed out.
I felt myself stop breathing.
“What do we do with the body?” Pastmaster asked. “Can we feed them to my raptors?”
“No, I want the enforcers outside to find the body, so throw it in the river,” Dark Kat said.
I didn’t understand how I could be hearing them if I was dead. I felt the ice cold water when they threw me in. I felt that couldn’t be right. Then, I was out again.
“Hey, over here, Commander Feral! We just pulled a body out of the river,” an enforcer yelled.
“Felina?” Feral asked, worried.
“No” the enforcer replied. “Thank God, that must mean she’s still in there,” Feral said.
Chance aka T-Bone
“No!!!!!” I screamed. It couldn’t be! I couldn’t lose my best friend. I sat down on the floor and started to cry. I couldn’t help it. Jake, my best friend forever, was dead. You would have cried too.
“Chance, I’m so sorry,” Felina said, sitting down beside me.
“Felina, he can’t be gone! He can’t!!!” I cried.
“I’m sorry, Chance,” Felina said again.
“This is all your fault!! How could you have let Dark Kat kidnap you?!” I yelled at Felina.
As soon as I said it I regretted it. Felina didn’t yell anything back; she just stood up and walked away.
“Felina, wait a minute,” I said, jumping up and moving toward her.
“No, Chance, you wait a minute. It’s not my fault!” Felina said.
“Felina, I’m sorry. You’re right – it’s not your fault. I’m just upset about loosing Jake,” I told her.
“Tomorrow it’s going to be me,” Felina said. I could just see the side of her face. I saw a single tear fall from her eye and run down her cheek.
“No, it won’t. I’m not going to let them take you from me,” I said, grabbing her arm and turning her around so she was facing me. I pulled her to me and wrapped my arms around her back.
“Chance,” she said, sounding a little startled. Then, she wrapped her arms around my neck and laid her head on my shoulder.
“Felina, I’m going to do all I can to keep them from getting you. I don’t know what I can do since I’m not T-Bone, just Chance, but I’m going to try,” I whispered to her.
Felina kept her arms around my neck but pulled back so she could look me in the eyes. “You’re wrong about that. You are T-Bone and you always will be…. at least to me,” she told me.
“Felina, I… I …,” I started to say but didn’t know how to finish it, so I leaned toward her. I was afraid she would pull away, but she didn’t. My lips touched hers, and I kissed her. I was surprised when she started kissing me back. It felt like nothing I had ever felt before. It was like a jolt of electricity ran through me. I knew then that I was starting to fall in love with Felina.
Just then, there was a big explosion, and the whole castle shock.
“Uncle!” Felina said, knowing it was the enforcers coming to save us.
I pulled Felina down into a corner and blocked her with my body so she wouldn’t get hurt. Another big explosion hit, and we heard the raptor scream. I looked and saw a big hole in the wall of the cage. The raptor was under the wall, not able to get out from under the stone. Then, there was another explosion and everything was quit.
“You ok, Felina?” I asked.
“Yes, I’m fine. Are you?” she asked.
“Yes,” I answered.
“Thanks,” she said.
“Felina, when we get out of this, would you like to go on a date with me?” I asked, afraid she would say no.
“I’d love to, Chance” Felina answered, hugging me again.
“Come on, let’s go,” I said, taking Felina by the paw and helping her through the hole in the wall.
We made it out of the castle without seeing the Pastmaster, Dark Kat or the raptors. They must have got away.
“Felina!” Feral yelled when he saw her exit the castle.
“Uncle!” Felina yelled, running to him and hugging him.
“Are you ok?” he asked.
“Yes, Uncle,” Felina answered.
“Felina, they took Razor to the hospital – he’s alive,” Feral told her.
“Uncle, I need a chopper,” Felina said.
“No, you don’t. We can take the cyclotron,” T-Bone said, coming up behind her. Felina
It has been about a year since that all happened. Jake was released after about two months in the hospital. The Swat Kats now work as part of the enforcers with my uncle, even though he’s not thrilled with it.
The Pastmaster… we don’t know what happened to him. Afterward, they said he went back in time, and he hasn’t showed up yet. Maybe he got eaten by a T-Rex or something.
Dark Kat was later caught and put in jail. Two days later he escaped. He still causes trouble, but not as much as he used to.
As for me, I’m getting married. That’s right – next week Chance and I are getting married. My uncle’s not too happy about it, but I am. I love Chance and I want him to be with me forever.
“Felina, what are you writing about” Chance said, walking up behind me.
“Oh, about what happened to us a year ago,” I answered.
“Ok, can’t you forget about that?” he asked.
“Are you kidding? No. Because, if it hadn’t happened, I would have never meet you,” I said.
Chance leaned down and kissed me.
I still had one thing I needed to tell him though. “Chance, I have something to tell you,” I said.
“What?” he asked.
“We’re going to have a kitten,” I said.
I had gone today and found out I was two weeks alone.
“What?!” he said, turning back to me.
I wrapped my arms around him and kissed him.
“Now, your Uncle can hate me even more,” he said.
“Let’s go tell him,” I said.
“Ok, and we have to tell Jake,” Chance said, picking me up and carrying me through the door.
