A/n: Howdy, once more! I'm REALLY sorry I haven't updated this in such a long time. I had major computer problems whose solution require a Starbucks coffee cup, a large can of Spam, three lawn flamingos and me reading Galaxy Angels manga. That'll teach me to smack my computer with a pointed stick…Anyway, aside from that, its spring break season and as I work at Disneyland, I've been real busy. But all of that is unimportant now, as I've finally managed to finish, edit AND post this chapter. *Insert rejoicing here*
What a Beautiful Day
Day 189: I asked her what she was doing for the rest of my life
Flash forward about six years. Kim and I made in through the local college together without any major incidents. I had to work hard to keep up with Kim (hey her mom's a brain surgeon and her dad's a rocket scientist) but I survived. Lucky for us, our dear "friend" Bonnie opted to go to school on the other side of the country. Once we graduated, Kim and I were both offered great jobs at Global Justice, which, of course, we took. Yup, life certainly was good…there was just one thing I needed to do to make if perfect and, for once in my life, I knew exactly what to do.
I showed up at Kim's parent's house one afternoon when I knew Kim was out with Monique. I knocked on the door and (Mr.) Dr. Possible answered. He smiled and let me in saying, "Hello, Ronald! Nice to see you!"
I shook his hand and said, "Nice to see you too, Dr. P."
I followed him into the living room where the other Dr. Possible was reading the paper. When she looked up and saw me, she seemed a little surprised to see me. "Hi, Ron. To what do we owe this visit?"
"Actually, I wanted to talk to you both about something."
"Of course, Ron, have seat."
I sat down on the sofa as Dr. Possible sat down next to his wife. They both gave me smiles and suddenly I felt this would be easier than I thought.
"Dr. Possible, Dr. Possible," I started, "Kim and I have know each other for almost twenty-years now and in those years we've been through everything from school dances to world disasters together. Kim is my best friend, my dream girl and the love of my life. She's the most amazing, special, wonderful, and beautiful girl in the whole world and I love her more than life itself. I can't imagine life without her that's why I want to ask her to marry me. That is, if it's all right with you."
Dr. Possible had a huge smile on her face. "It's more than alright, Ron!"
"You mean it?"
"Of course, Ron. I watched the two of you grow up and no one has ever been more devoted to Kim as you are. She loves you Ron, and she sure is lucky to have found such a wonderful man to spend her life with."
"Wow, thanks Dr. P." I stood up and she gave me a warm hug.
The other Dr. Possible shook my hand and said, "You're a good man, Ronald and I know you'll take good care of my Kimmie-cub."
I just smiled and said, "You don't know how that means to me, Dr. P." I glanced at my watch. "Well, I've got to jet. I've got a few errands to run before my date with Kim. If everything goes right, this time tomorrow, I'll be engaged."
Both Dr. Possible (Mr.) walked with me to the door and shook my hand one more time. "You know, Ron, you making the effort to come over here and talk to us like this tells me you really care about Kim and it really means a lot to me."
"Just trying to do the right thing, Dr. P."
I left the Possibles' feeling even more confident about what I was going to do that night.
I few hours later, I arrived at the apartment Kim shared with Monique looking my best in a pair of black slacks and a new hunter green dress shirt. I still wore my sneakers, though; to this day I still hate dress shoes.
Anyway, Kim answered the door looking as beautiful as ever and grinning as she saw me. "Ready to go?" I asked.
"Always," she replied, taking my hand.
I took Kim out for a nice dinner and afterwards, for a long walk in the park. I couldn't have imagined a better night to pop the question; it was a beautiful summer night, the moon was bright and the stars were shinning. We walked along for awhile, just enjoying being together, until we came to a quiet part of the park, away from all the traffic and noise.
When I'd found just the right spot, we stopped walking and I said, "Hey, Kim, I've got something on my mind."
"What's up?" She replied, smiling gently.
"You and I have been together pretty much our whole lives and no matter what happened to us, at the end of the day, we always had each other. You're everything to me, Kim; my best friend, my soul-mate, the love of my life--my whole world. I don't know what I'd do without you and I'm not willing to find out so I have to know…" I got down on one knee and pulled out the ring I'd had to save for three months to buy. "Kimberly Ann Possible, will you marry me?"
I slipped the ring on her finger as her face broke into a huge smile and she said, "Of course I will, Ron!" I stood up and she hugged me tight. "I'm the luckiest girl in the world to be able to spend the rest of my life with someone as amazing as you, Ron," she said, tears in her eyes. "I love you."
"I love you too, Kim."
Later that night, Kim fell asleep in my arms as we sat on her couch watching an old movie on TV. Earlier, I'd had to endure twenty minutes of happy shrieking when Kim told Monique the good news but with only Bob Hope and Lucille Ball to break the late night silence, I was completely relaxed. As I watched the second half of the movie and held the sleeping Kim in my arms, I couldn't help but smile. After all, I was engaged to my best friend, life just doesn't get much better than that.
A/n: Ok, is everyone happy? Y'all can stop sending me death threats now. I hope this chapter was worth the wait. Next chapter should be up real soon. Review, as always! Catch you crazy cats on the flip side! ~Mulder
