Mel didn't see the man in the gray suit following her as she stormed out of
the hotel. Janice caught a glimpse of Mel crossing the street.

"Mel" she called

Just as Mel turned to see Janice a black car pulled up and the man in the
gray suit grabbed her and shoved her in the car.

"Mel" Janice screamed as she ran toward the car.

A minute later, Diana showed up. "What happened?" she asked Janice.

"I don't know, a black car just pulled up and a man grabbed her, he shoved
her in the car" Janice said with a panic.

"Janice come on" Diana grabbed her and headed for the alley.

"What are you doing?" Janice asked as they stopped in the middle of the

"Janice, I am a descendant of Gabriel, Queen of the Amazons" Diana said as
she started to spin.

A sudden flash of light came from the center of Diana's being. Janice covered
her eyes as the light sparked. When she looked at where Diana was standing,
she saw another woman in her place. Janice blinked her eyes as if in
disbelief. The woman that stood before her was dressed in a red, gold and
blue strapless one-piece bathing suit. Her breastplate was gold and appeared
as an eagle. She had long ebony hair, her eyes were deeply blue, and they
reminded Janice of Mel. Mel, oh my god we have to save Mel.

"Diana" Janice whispered not sure if the woman that stood in front of her was
actually her newfound friend.

"Yes, Janice it's me" Diana replied.

"Your Wonder Woman" Janice asked again in a whisper. She had heard of this
female heroine, but assumed she was created to motive the women that were
becoming part of the workforce while the men were away at war.

"Janice let's go get Mel then I'll explain everything to you ok?" Wonder
Woman said, then she leaped up to the top of the building they had been
standing next too.

Janice looked up, her mouth was wide open. "Wow" she breathed.

Wonder Woman saw the car about a block away and ran from building top to
building top before she jumped to the street and landed behind the car. She
briefly ran behind it.

Inside the car Mel sat in the back seat with the man in the gray suit. The
driver had the radio playing, Harry James and his Orchestra accompanied by
Helen Forrest as she sang 'I Don't Want to Walk Without You'. Mel began to
cry, not because she was afraid, but because she felt she'd lost Janice. Her
heart was breaking.

It felt as though the car hit something. The driver looked out the window and
everything stood still. The wheels on the car were turning, but the car
wasn't moving. The driver looked out the rear view mirror and saw why. Wonder
Woman was holding the rear of the car at about waist level. These men lived
in Washington D.C. so they were familiar with the heroics of this Amazing
woman. The driver put the car in park and shut down the engine. Both men got
out of the car and tried to make a run but suddenly found a rope around their
midsections. Wonder Woman used her lasso to capture them. Mel got out of the
car. She was as surprised as Janice had been to see this woman standing in
front of her.

"Wonder Woman" she whispered through sobs.

"Mel are you alright?" Wonder Woman asked deeply concerned.

"How do you know my name" Mel asked a bit surprised.

Just then a taxi pulled up and Janice emerged from the vehicle.

"Mel" Janice called as she ran to the southern belle.

Mel's first reaction was to embrace the small blonde, but she hesitated.

"Where is Diana, I assumed you two would be together?" Mel asked with a
bitter tone.

Janice looked over at Wonder Woman who nodded her head no, not yet.

"Mel what do you think we were doing back there?" Janice asked. How do I
explain this to her.

"Well I don't know Janice why don't you tell me" Mel sarcastically returned.

Wonder Woman interrupted the bickering women. She wanted to find out why they
were after Mel.

"Who sent you two to kidnap Melinda and why?" She asked.

The man in the gray suit told them that Kathryn Najara sent them, she wanted
to use Mel as leverage for the Xena Scrolls.

Wonder Woman told them to stay put, the men did not move, her magic lasso
compelled them. She then took the lasso and turned to talk to Mel.

"Mel I want you to take this", She handed Mel her lasso. "It compels anyone
who wears it to tell the truth. You might not believe what Janice is going
to tell you so if you want to use my lasso then you'll know."

"Good idea" Janice replied.

"Janice, I have to take these guys in and I'm going to get Najara, I'll meet
up with you two later, be packed and ready to go, I want you to come home
with me, you'll understand more when we get there. You too Mel" Wonder Woman
said then she turned to the men and started walking away.

"Mel let's go back to the hotel" Janice said.

Mel nodded.


Once back in the hotel room, Mel sat in the chair near the window and Janice
paced the floor, trying to figure out what exactly conspired that afternoon.

"Ok, Diana was telling me about Greece, then she asked about Ares. I didn't
know how she knew, that's why I wanted to continue talking to her. When we
came to the room, I told her what had happened in Macedonia, even about you
and Xena (Mel didn't say a word). Anyway, she thought I was related to Xena,
and when I told her I was a descendant of Gabrielle, she wanted to see my
scar, it's shaped like a crescent moon, (Mel continued to stare) that's when
she told me that Gabrielle was an Amazon Queen and she was also a descendant
of Gabrielle. She took off her blouse and showed me an identical scar.

"Can I see it?" Mel finally spoke.

Janice looked at Mel not realizing what she meant.

"Your scar, may I see it?" Mel asked again.

"Oh, yea of course" Janice answered as she walked over to Mel. She unbuttoned
her blouse and pulled her bra down, then kneeled down in front of her.

Mel suddenly realized they were in the same position she saw Janice and Diana
in earlier. Mel looked at the scar then she ever-so-lightly brushed her
fingertips across it This motion however had a totally different effect on
Janice then when Diana had touched it. It sent a shock of electricity through
her entire body. The movement didn't go unnoticed by Mel.

"If you don't believe me Mel you could always use the lasso" Janice added.

"Oh Janice, that wont be necessary. I know Gabrielle was an amazon queen, and
I know Ares exists, I saw Wonder Woman, she's real too, but what happened to
Diana?" Mel asked.

"Mel haven't you been listening, Diana is Wonder Woman, we're both
descendants of Gabrielle" Janice said trying to make Mel understand.

"Diana's Wonder Woman" Mel said aloud.

"Yea" Janice replied.

"So then you two are related" Mel said more to herself than to Janice.

"I guess so" Janice answered.

Once everything made sense to Mel, she realized what a fool she had been to
run out on Janice the way she did. "Janice I'm sorry I ran out like that" she

"Mel, that's ok, but why did you get so mad?"

"I um I don't know" Mel hesitated.

"You know I could always use the lasso" Janice chided.

Realizing what they had in their possession, Mel got up and grabbed the lasso
from the table. "Come here Janice" she called.

Janice looked a bit worried but walked over to her. Mel took the lasso and
put it around both of them.
"Ok there are some things that I want to know but I know you won't answer
just like I know there are some things that you want to know that I won't
answer, so, we get to ask two questions each ok" Mel said.

"Go ahead, ask away" Janice answered.

"Were you attracted to Diana when you first saw her?" Mel asked.

Janice laughed, "no."

"My turn" Janice said, "were you dreaming of me this morning?"

"Yes" Mel answered.

"Who do you love Janice" Mel asked then closed her eyes in fear of the answer.

"You Mel, I love you." Janice said with a struggle.

Mel knew it was the truth and she knew Janice would have never admitted to it
without the help of the lasso.

She opened her eyes and saw the truth in Janice'.

Mel leaned down and Janice reached up both met at the middle. Their lips
softly touched, their arms encircled each other and the lasso dropped to the
floor. The kiss deepened and their breathing became one.
As their lips parted, their hearts united.

"Janice I've wanted to do that since the first time I saw you" Mel spoke in
between breaths.


"Oh yea" Mel said as she brushed her hand against Janice' cheek. "We really
should get this lasso back to Diana."

"Hey, I didn't get to ask my other question" Janice said as she lowered her

"Ok, then ask away" Mel laughed.

Just then a knock at the door interrupted them. Mel picked up the lasso and
Janice walked over to the door.

"Who is it?" she asked.

"It's me Diana."

Janice opened the door and Diana walked in. She was wearing a blue skirt and
white blouse. Her hair was up in a bun as it had been before Wonder Woman
made her appearance. She wore her brown framed, circular glasses.

"Diana, we didn't expect you back so soon," Janice said as she looked at her
watch. She didn't realize that almost two hours had passed since she and Mel
left Wonder Woman with the two bad guys.

"Well, I had the police pick up Najara for questioning and it seems she had
some artifacts that were going to be shipped out this evening, I don't think
she had permission from the museum however" Diana grinned.

"She probably planned on selling the scrolls, thinking I'd trade them for
Mel" Janice assumed.

"Probably" Diana added.

"Well would'ya have?" Mel asked.

Janice walked over to Mel and wrapped her arms around the bigger woman's
waist. "Oh baby, I'd trade my life for you" she said, then she reached up and
planted a kiss on Mel's lips.

"Janice" Mel felt a bit embarrassed, but not too much. She looked over at
Diana who was smiling.

"I'm glad to see you two worked things out" she interrupted, "now are you
packed, we do have to get home. Mother will be very happy to see the both of

"Mother?" both Mel and Janice simultaneously, said.

"My mother, Queen Hippolytal" Diana replied.

"Your mother is a queen?" Mel asked.

"Get you stuff together, I'll explain on the plane" Diana Said.

Mel went down stairs and paid the charges for the room, while Janice packed
up their belongings. As soon as Mel returned the trio was ready to go.

"Follow me" Diana, said as she headed up the stairs.

"Where are we going?" Mel asked.

"To the roof" Diana replied.

"The roof, what on earth or we going to do on the roof?" Mel questioned.

"That's were I parked my plane." Diana said as a matter of fact.

"Oh your plane" Mel laughed as if it was the most ridiculous thing she had
ever heard.

Diana opened the door to the roof and let Mel and Janice go through first.
Once up there they both looked around to see a plane. Nothing but an empty
roof top.

Mel put her hands on her hips and Janice put her hands in her pant pockets.
"Um Diana" Janice spoke.

"I know, I know" Diana said as she walked toward the center of the roof. She
began to spin.

"Your gonna love this" Janice said to Mel.

Mel watched as Diana changed into Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman squatted down a little and put her hand in front of her as if
grabbing something, it looked as if she were lifting a hatch. "Come on" she
called to the pair that watched in amazement as Diana suddenly disappeared
into the nothingness of the roof.

"Where'd she go Janice" Mel asked with a look of disbelief.

Diana stuck her head back out and called the ladies again.

Janice walked over with Mel following behind.

"Just feel your way up the steps, there are three" Diana called.

Sure enough, Janice felt a step in front of her, she couldn't see them, but
they were there. Both her and Mel entered the small plane. Once inside they
felt for the seats. The plane was rather small, but they fit comfortably.

"This is amazing" Janice said as she looked around. She could see a watery
outline of the inside of the plane.

Diana helped the duo secure their belts, and then she walked to the cockpit
and took a seat. "Hold on" she called behind her.

Janice and Mel had no idea what to expect. There were no sounds from the
engine. The plane just simply lifted up then jetted straight out toward the
evening sky.

Once the plane settled, Diana put it on auto-pilot then turned to face the
two passengers.

"My mother is Hippolytal, Queen of the Amazons" Diana stated.

"The Amazons" Janice asked. "The same Amazons that Gabrielle ruled over?"

"Wait, how, where are they?" Mel asked.

"We live on an Island in the Bermuda Triangle. That's where we are headed
now" Diana informed.

Both Janice and Mel stared at Diana in utter surprise. The Bermuda Triangle
is an area that is believed to have some kind of paranormal activities there.
Many planes and ships have been reported lost once entering the area.

"Don't worry, we are protected in that area" Diana added as she noticed the
concern on both Mel and Janice' face.

"Why don't you two get some sleep, its going to be a couple of hours before
we get there." Diana added, then turned back to check the controls of the
