All I Really Want
Chapter 1: Accidental Confession
Kim had had a nice evening planned out for her and Ron. They were going to go out to a nice restaurant, something better than Bueno Nacho but not quite a fancy as Chez Couteaux. Then they'd go for a nice long, romantic walk in the park, probably stop to admire the stars and feed the ducks. The night would then be topped off by watching a late night movie at home while snuggling on the couch. Which of course would be "accidently" interrupted a few times by her father. Still, it'd be a nice night all around.
Then the Kimmunicator went off.
Though she desperately wanted to just ignore it and go on their date, she knew she couldn't do that. Especially if someone needed help. So it was with great reluctance, and annoyance, that she answered the call and Wade informed her of a report of people matching Drakken and Shego's descriptions breaking into the Middleton Lighting Exploration Lab.
After she recovered from the fact that Middleton had a Lighting Exploration Lab, she and Ron quickly suited up before heading out to stop another one of Drakken's crazy schemes. Almost as soon as they stepped foot inside the laboratory, Shego tackled Kim, knocking her back a few feet until the cheerleader was able to kick the older woman off her. Kim ordered Ron to go head to try and stop Drakken while she once again fought Shego.
So, for what seemed like the billionth time, the two women were locked in mortal combat. Kim dodged Shego's plasma blasts until she was close enough to engage her in hand-to-hand combat. As with the many times before, they fought each other to a standstill, neither one really gaining an advantage, but neither losing ground as well.
Basically, it turned into a normal Saturday night for Kim. Including another fight with Shego where the two exchanged jabs both physically and verbally.
"So Princess, still going out with that loser?" Shego quipped as she ducked a punch from the redhead.
Kim snarled a bit at the remark. "He's not a loser! And yes, I am. In fact, we did have plans for tonight until someone decided to do something criminal."
"Oh, do you mean little ol' me?" the pale woman feigned innocence before lashing out with a high kick that Kim sidestepped. "You should be thanking me then. I saved you another crappy date at Bueno Nacho."
"We weren't going to Bueno Nacho!"
"And who's idea was that, yours or his?"
Kim's flushed red a bit in embarrassment as she blocked another of Shego's punches.
"Mine," she admitted sheepishly.
"See? I'm telling you Kimmie he really is a buffoon."
"No. He's. Not!" Kim cried back, throwing a punch with each word, the last one finding it's mark on the other woman's chin.
Shego's head cocked back with the blow and when she brought her head forward, she rubbed her chin with a sly smile.
"Oooh, seems like I touched a nerve," she teased. "I mean that punch was pretty hard for you Cupcake."
"Then maybe you'll learn stop dissing my boyfriend!" Kim advised.
"Maybe I will when you finally wise up. I mean seriously, how long can you expect this thing to last?"
Again Kim when silent as a blush returned to her cheeks though this one was much brighter. So much so in fact that it caused Shego to drop her defensive stance and just blink at the redhead.
"Oh come on, you can't tell me you've thought that far ahead!" she cried out, waving her hands a bit frantically.
"Well..." Kim replied nervously, grinding her toe into the metal floor a bit.
"Oh God, you have," Shego sighed, running hand down her face. "Let me guess, you thought about kids too, huh?"
The girl when even more red. "I really don't think this is something we should be discussing."
"Yeah, you're right, cause you should be smarter than that. I mean, really think about the kids! They'll be all red headed and stupid. They'll have to go to special schools. It'll cost a fortune!"
That snapped Kim out of her embarrassed daze and right back into anger. She let out a small growl before leaping towards the pale green woman again. Shego easily countered the attack by grabbing the redhead's ankle and pant cuff then turned and used the girl's own momentum to send her flying across the lab. Kim flipped through the air and was able to right herself just as she landed, skidding a few inches on the floor as she did so. She quickly stood up and glared at Shego only to find her smirking once again.
"Gee, just one bad thing and you go flying right off the handle. That's gotta tell ya something," she gloated.
"Yeah, that you should have listened to me earlier and stop talking bad about Ron," Kim shot back.
"Not as long as you keep dating him."
"Why?! What does it matter to you!"
"Because I know you can do so much better!" Shego shouted, again gesturing frantically.
"And what makes you so sure of that?!" the redhead screamed, not really sure why she was getting into this conversation with her arch rival.
"Because...I just...do! I mean...there's someone else out there that'd be a much better match for you than Stoppable."
"Really?" Kim asked, placing her hand on her hips. "And who might this mystery person be?"
This time it was Shego's posture that turned to one of embarrassment and uncertainty.
"Well...like...maybe...me," she confessed, the last word barely above a whisper.
Okay, this was new.
Kim stood blinking in surprise and confusion as she stared at Shego who was also quiet now but her look was one more of shame and anger.
Stupid, stupid, stupid! Shego berated herself mentally. Why did you have to say that?! OK, maybe she didn't hear you so there's still a chance you can back out of this. Wait. Since when do I run from anything? Since there's a chance this could make everything weird between me and Possible, that's when. But...still...maybe...aw screw it, never run from a challenge, why start now?
"What did you say?" Kim asked, breaking the silence and snapping Shego out of her reprieve.
Shego looked back at Kim, her normally battle hardened face now soft with conflicting emotions of confusion, nervousness and just a bit of fear. It was an expression the red headed girl had never seen on the older woman before and she wasn't sure she liked.
"It said 'me'," Shego repeated a little louder.
"Me, I'm a better match for you than Stoppable."
"Match as in...how?" Kim asked, cocking an eyebrow.
"Come on Kimmie, you're smarter than this. You know exactly what I'm talking about," Shego said, now sounding a bit annoyed.
"I'm not sure I do. I mean are we talking about..."
"Yes! I have feelings for you!"
"Feelings like you want to hurt me or...?"
"I love you!" Shego finally cried out in exasperation.
Once more the room went silent. The two rivals just stared at each other from across the lab which now somehow seemed so much bigger to Shego. She wanted to say something, anything, to break the horrible, heavy silence but no words wanted to form in her mouth. She tried reaching out to Kim but the girl just continued to stand there and stare at her blankly. Shego lowered her hand and began to rethink her whole "not running away" idea when Kim finally said something. It was a faint, though, so the pale woman barely heard it.
"What?" she asked, her own voice sounding quite and distant.
"I can't believe you," Kim repeated a bit more loudly as her hands balls into fists and her body shook a bit.
"Don't!" the girl screamed, jabbing an angry finger towards her opponent. "No more cute little nicknames! Not after you have the nerve to pull a stunt like this!"
"'A stunt like this'?!" Shego shouted back, sounding genuinely offended. "I'm opening my heart to you, pouring out emotions I've kept bottle up for longer than I care to admit and you're calling it 'a stunt'?!"
"What else would it be?!" Kim yelled, now throwing her arms up as Shego had done before. "I mean you really expect me to believe you're in love with me?!"
"Oh do you want me to go down the list?! Because I so will!"
"Look, I admit this is a bit weird-"
"Oh weird doesn't even begin to describe this."
"Shut up and let me finish!" Shego snapped.
She waited to see if Kim was going to make another comeback, but when the girl just folded her arms over her chest and cocked her head towards her, Shego took that as a sign to continue.
"Good," she nodded. "Now as I was saying, I actually am in love with you. And don't ask me how it started, I'm not really sure myself. I just know that...for awhile now I've...noticed you. In a...different way."
Kim's eyes widened at that. "You've been checking me out?!"
"Well...yes. Especially when you got that new outfit there. I admit, I miss seeing your mid drift but the shirt being tighter is a plus."
The teen hero let out astonished gawk before moving her crossed arms up over her chest to hide them from the other woman's gaze. Shego rolled her eyes a bit at the move, but still frowned slightly.
"Anyway," she continued, "I wasn't really sure what was happening. I thought maybe I was going insane or something. Maybe it was a side effect from when someone kicked me into an electrical tower! In the rain!"
Kim's expression and stance softened a bit at that part. "Yeah...well...that's not something I'm proud of. I just got carried away there. I'm sorry."
"But see that's another reason why I can't believe you. I mean...shouldn't you be mad at me for that?"
"Oh I was," Shego said with a malicious glint in her eye. "I spent a lot of time in prison wanting to do nothing more than wring you pretty cheerleading neck for that one." She paused and blinked when she realized she had her hands in the choking motion. She lowered them with a sigh as she looked back at Kim. "But eventually I realized it was my own fault. Well...mostly Drakken's for coming up with that stupid plan to begin with, but I went along with it. Hell I even pushed the envelope a bit by making that remark about Erik." She glanced down for a second before looking sheepishly at the girl. "Sorry about that."
"You should be," Kim muttered. "None of this has really convinced me though."
"I know. I know it sounds weird and crazy and maybe even a bit pathetic, but it's how I feel! I can't help that!" she huffed. "But it's not like we're totally incompatible. I mean we got along great when I was Miss Go, remember?"
A tiny smirk found it's way onto Kim's lips as memories of those almost care free few days came back to her.
"Yeah," she almost whispered. "Yeah we definitely got along great then. And I have to admit it was pretty fun hanging out."
"See?!" Shego asked, almost desperately. "We can get along!"
"All it takes is for you to get Attitudinatored into someone completely different," Kim scoffed.
"But why? Why can't we try to work through this without either one of us having to change?"
"You know why!" Kim screamed, tugging at her hair and pacing angrily a bit. "I'm a hero! You're a villain! It's never going to work! Plus...you're a girl! I'm not into girls, I'm into guys! This whole thing just..." she trailed off with a frustrated growl then spun around to stare at Shego. "We are just so...wrong for each other! And you know that! You know that! You know that I'm finally in a happy and somewhat stable relationship with the only guy who's always been there for me! So I think this whole 'Kimmie I've been secretly in love with you for months' thing is just another way for you to make fun of me and my relationship. So I'm sorry if I'm not all gushy over the whole thing!"
Kim finished her tirade with another frustrated sigh as she swung her arms violently to the side. She waited for the usual smartass retort from Shego about how this all one big joke or scam and how she didn't really expect her to fall for it. When neither of those options happened, she happened a glance of at her and was startled to see that Shego was actually turned away from her and that her shoulders were slumped a bit. The biggest shock were the noises that were coming from the pale woman. It almost sounded like she was...whimpering.
Not here. Not now. Don't you dare breakdown in front of her, Shego chided herself mentally as she fought to keep the tears in her eyes.
For a second, Kim felt bad until she realized that this was probably just more of Shego's plan. So instead of offering an apology or a comforting hand she just rolled her eyes and scoffed.
"Oh don't act like you're hurt," she pleaded. "Now you're just embarrassing both of us."
At that remark, Shego spun around and glared at Kim with a hatred the younger woman had never seen before. She was so focused on the girl who has so completely rejected her that she barely even registered a small explosion in the background and Drakken calling out her name. It was only when she heard Ron's whiney voice calling out Kim's name that she remembered where she was and that she had to be leave soon. But not without passing along one finally message first.
"You know Kimmie, it turns out Drakken was right about something after all," she sneered. "Words do hurt."
Before Kim could reply, Shego spun around again and started running towards the sound of Drakken's voice. One her way, she came across Ron who was running in the opposite direction to get to Kim. With a vicious growl she shot out her arm to shove him to the side, the force sending the blonde haired boy crashing to the floor so hard he bounced a little.
"Ron!" Kim shouted, running to his side and kneeling down next to him. "Are you alright?"
"Yeah, yeah I think I'm find," he said, rubbing his sore back a little. "Was it my imagination or did she push me extra hard that time?"
Kim didn't reply at first. Instead she focused on the disappearing form of Shego.
"She might have," the redhead remarked, her voice sounding distant.
"KP, you okay?" Ron asked, his voice now carrying the concern.
"I'm not really sure," she replied as she helped him to his feet.
"Why? What happened?"
"I...I don't know if I want to talk about it. At least...not here. You up for a Bueno Nacho run?"
A goofy grin spread across Ron's face as he wrapped an arm round Kim's waist and pulled her close.
"Always!" he said enthusiastically. "A warm plate of Nacos and my hot girlfriend as my side will help make up for the original date being ruined."
Kim smiled warmly at him before resting her head on his shoulder and lacing her hand around his. She wanted to believe that talking to him over a plate of Nacos just like they normally did really would help her get over the shock of tonight and that things would just go back to normal. She wanted to believe that, but she just couldn't.
Why do I have the feeling this is just the beginning of something...really weird? she thought dreadfully.
There are few things in this world that can keep Ron from enjoying the delicacy of his own Bueno Nacho invention, the Naco. In fact, almost nothing could keep him from enjoying that delicious mix of meat, cheese, and crunchy nachos. Even when he and Kim are suddenly called off to a mission during a Bueno Nacho stop he finds time to scarf down the snack, even if that's not his preferred way to eat them. So if there was anything that actually could stop him from enjoying one it had to be something major.
Something like what Kim had just told him.
He sat there frozen and stared at her blankly. His hand was stuck in mid-air, the Naco dangling precariously from his fingers. His mouth still hung open from when he was able to take a rather large bite, but now it was opened as an expression of shock and confusion. Rufus mimicked his master's expression from his own plate of nachos sitting on the table. When Ron finally remembered how to move, he closed his mouth before gently sitting his Naco down and pushing it aside. He then calmly placed his hands on the table in a cupped position as he tried to understand what Kim had just said.
"Shego said she was...was..." he tried to repeat her words, but he just wasn't sure if he could force himself to.
"In love with me," Kim finished for him, the thought sending another shiver down her spine.
"But...but...she's a...she! And you're a...she! And together that would be...well, actually..."
Ron's expression quickly turned from one of horrified disgust to one of pleasurable fantasy. It was, of course, brought to an quick and abrupt end when Kim punched him in the arm.
"Ow!" he shouted, rubbing the now sore spot.
"Serves you right," Kim muttered.
"Sorry, normal teenage male hormones acting up," Ron explained sheepishly. "But seriously the thought of you two together is just...well...wrongsick!"
"I know!" the redhead shouted, throwing her arms up in a wide arch.
"Are you sure this wasn't just her messing with you again?"
"That's what I thought too at first, but right before she ran away and pushed you down there was this look in her eye like I...I really hurt her," Kim said softly, feeling a bit ashamed.
"But that would imply Shego actually has feelings."
"Yeah I know."
"I mean the amount of times she put us in deathtraps alone..."
"And all the punching and kicking and what not..."
"Not to mention that thing with Erik..."
"I know!" Kim snapped, cause Ron, Rufus, and a few of the customers around them to flinch. She then sighed and looked at him apologetically. "Sorry, this whole sitch has just got me weirded out."
"Yeah I bet. I mean Shego thinking of you like...that...who knew?" he asked rhetorically.
"I know I'd rather not have known."
"You and me both KP."
Kim nodded silently and their booth grew quiet. Finding his appetite again, Ron went back to his Naco while Kim idly poked at her salad with her fork. Though she wasn't saying anything, he could tell by the look on her face that she was thinking of something big. Really big. Something like...
His eyebrow's arched a little as he imagined what she might be thinking. He thought it was impossible, but then he remembered Kim's family motto.
"You would never...leave me to be with..." he asked hesitantly.
Kim glanced up at him with a questioning look. After a few seconds she filled in what he couldn't say and her eyes grew wide with astonishment.
"Oh God no!" she shouted, again drawing the store's attention to them.
She smiled and wave nervously at the irritated crowd. When they went back to their own routines, she sighed then looked back at Ron with a soft and kind hearted expression.
"No, I would never do that to you," she said more quietly, resting a hand on top of his. "I mean, there's nothing wrong with women who are like that, but I prefer boys."
"You do?" he asked, sounding more uncertain than he meant to.
"Yes," she confirmed, giving his hand a gentle squeeze. "Particularly blonde haired boys with freckles, a kind heart and big ears."
The smile on Ron's face disappeared at the end of her statement.
"Wait, was that last thing a compliment or insult?"
"Considering I like them?" she questioned as she leaned forward. "It's a compliment."
"Well then...booyah," he replied as he leaned forward as well.
The couple leaned even further towards each other until their lips met in a lovingly kiss. It was a sweet, simple kiss that served to reinforce the love they shared. It also served to make Rufus a little sick as he made small gagging noises at the sight of human affection, but they were too involved in each other to notice the little mole rat's disapproval.
Shego sat on the bed in her private room in Drakken's lair. She had retreated there the second they had gotten back from the botched job, not in any mood to listen to Drakken's incessant whining about how didn't get...whatever stupid thing he needed for his latest idiotic plan. She also didn't want to take the chance of him picking up on her emotional state. Despite how totally clueless he could be about...everything, he seemed to have an uncanny knack for noticing when something was wrong emotionally. At any other time she might have found it actually quite endearing, but at the moment. No, for now she just wanted to be alone and try to work things out in her head.
So when she stepped foot into the room, the first thing she did was lock the door. She then went into the bedroom and locked the door there as well before turning on the radio. She had hoped that the music would help sooth her damaged heart, but she was focusing too much on what happened earlier that she barely even noticed the song that was playing.
heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Instead, she focused on the object in her lap. It was one of her most sacred personal possessions so she went to great lengths to hide it. Always locking the outer door, the inner door, building the secret compartment under her bed and keeping it in it's own private safe box that required a key that was always in her ankle pouch as well as a combination lock. It did seem a bit extreme, even to her, but she wanted to make sure no one else found it. If they did, her entire criminal reputation would be ruined. Plus there would be some questions she didn't really want to answer. Thankfully though, no one seemed to have found it yet.
If someone were to find it, though, they might think it odd that she want to such elaborate messures to hide something so simple. For tucked neatly inside the metal safe box, was a small, green covered, photo album. It wasn't the album itself that she wanted to keep so secret, but rather the contents within. Inside seemingly ordinary book, were pages full of candid photos of Kim Possible. Most were stills from security cameras, but there were a few from when she got really desperate and hired a photographer to take pictures of the redhead. She knew it was creepy and a bit stalkerish, but she couldn't help it. Somewhere along the line she became completely and totally obsessed with Kim Possible. If only...if only she could get a little closer.
faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
in the moonlight
Of course when she tried that, when she tried to tell Kim how she felt, she was rejected. Completely and totally rejected. Despite all the pain and anger and rage she felt towards the whole incident, she didn't really blame Kim. If the situations had been reversed, Shego wouldn't have believed her either. Still...even though she was hurting more than she ever had in her life right now, she still found herself in love with the teen hero.
tied you Hallelujah,
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne,
she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
She just wish she knew why she felt this way. Despite the harshness of her words, everything Kim had said was right. They were completely wrong for each other. Especially about their opinions on the law. She knew she could never go back to being a hero just like she knew Kim would never be a villain. At least not without the proper motivation. But then that again went with the problem of the redhead just not wanting to listen to her. Not to mention there was at least a ten year age gap between the two. There really was no way she could figure out for it to work. Just like all the times before when she mused over the subject.
I've been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
The problem was, no matter how many times she tried to reason it out and convince herself it wouldn't work and that she should just let it go...she couldn't. She had tried. Lord know she tried. Tried to think of someone else, anyone else who could be as much a match for her as Kimmie. Unfortunately, that list was a rather short one. Dating a normal person was completely out of the question because they was no way they'd be able to handle her lifestyle. That only left the other villains running around. Of course the only male villain that even remotely interested her was Senior Senior Junior. While it was fun to tutor him and he could make a fun one time date, there was no way she'd be able to stand him in a real relationship. Hell, she doubted he even knew what being in a relationship meant. That left the very few female villains running around and again, she just wasn't very much interested in any of them. No, for all the trouble it caused her the only person who really captured her heart was the redheaded world savior.
seen your flag on the marble arch Hallelujah,
love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah
With a remorseful sigh, Shego turned to the newest page of the photo album and stared down at the only photo that wasn't some far way shot. The photo that would remind her of the only time she would most likely ever get close to Kim. One she had foolishly tried to destroy in a moment of weakness. She ran a finger along the charred edges through it's protective plastic covering. It was the very last picture on the slip of photo booth pictures she and Kim had taken together when she was still Miss Go. Looking down at their smiling faces, their arms wrapped around each other's shoulders, completely content to be with each other...it made her both happy and angry. Happy that she had those precious few days to be closer to Kim but angry in the fact that she'd apparently never get them back. That Kim would never really accept her as herself.
was a time you'd let me know Hallelujah, Hallelujah
What's real and going on below
But now you never show it to me do you?
Remember when I moved in you?
The holy dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah
As she continued to look down at the picture, Shego's anger grew more and more. Who did that little redhead witch thing she was?! Why is it she could like Shego as someone else but not herself?! Why did the age gap between them matter or what side of the law they were on? They could work through that if they tried. But she was just so unwilling to. So wrapped up in her "love" for that buffoon! Why?! Why did she chose him over her?! What was so great about him anyway?! So they had been best friends since pre-Ki, so what?! Just cause you knew someone longer didn't mean that made them your perfect match. But if that's the way the princess wanted to play it, then fine. To hell with her!
Shego let out an enraged growl as she slammed the book shut and threw it violently across the room. It made a loud, reverberating "clang" as it smacked hard against the metal wall of the room before crashing to the floor below, causing pictures to spill out everywhere. She let out a satisfied "huff" as she crossed her arms over her chest and looked away from the offending book. She tried her best to ignore it, but much like a child trying to get it's mother's attention, it called out to her. Or rather the place in represented in her heart called out to her. She shook her head violently in an effort to silence that quiet nagging, but it persisted. She slammed her eyes shut and demanded that it be quiet, but still it persisted. She reviewed all the reasons why a relationship with Kim could never work once again, but still it persisted.
there's a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It's not a cry you can hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah
She finally let out a deep, defeated sigh and forced herself off the bed to slowly walk over to where the tattered photo book lay. She knelt down and began to pick up the scattered pictures, her heart warming over as she looked at each one again. Who was she kidding? She was never going to get over Kim. She was just going to have to find some way to leave with the fact that while she loved the girl, the cheerleader didn't, and probably never would, return the feeling. Still, their paths would continue to cross and even if it was just for a few minutes and they had to spend it fighting each other, it was still as close to private time with Kim as she'd ever get, so she had to cherish every moment of it.
As she continued to put the scrapbook back together, she found her most precious possession underneath one of the photos. She had kept it safe in a small plastic bag and tucked it away in the very last page of the book. She knew that it probably didn't do much to dissolve the stalker image, but she didn't care. The object in question was a lock of Kim's hair she had accidently torn out during one of their fights. At first, after she pulled it out of her glove, she was going to throw it away but something compelled her to keep it. She didn't understand it at the time, but now she realized it was that part of her heart telling her to keep this little memento as a way to be closet to Kim always.
A small, sad smile crossed her lips as she flipped the baggie around in her hand. With the way things went with their recent...discussion this was probably the closet she was ever going to get to Kim.
"Unless..." she mused, a rather insane idea forming in the back of her head.
"Ah, ah, ah, don't you even dare think about it!" an irritatingly familiar, and chipper, voice chided her.
Shego let out an annoyed groan and turned around to where she had thought she heard the voice only to come face-to-face with her full length mirror. Her reflection smiled back at her, but it wasn't her true reflection. Instead of the reversal of her usual green and black cat suit, the woman in the mirror was wearing a brown suit jacket and skirt with a blue button collared shirt underneath it. The shirt matched a headband that kept her usually quite long raven locks into a shorter, mid back range style. What really clenched the whole thing though was the all-too-chipper face smiling back at her. This was her reflection alright, but it was somehow one of her Miss Go persona.
"Great, now I'm going crazy," Shego muttered.
"You're not going crazy silly!" Miss Go reassured her.
Shego rolled her eyes at her. "I can't believe I actually talked like that," she muttered again, then forced herself to look her counterpart in the eye. "Alright, so if I'm not going crazy then what exactly are you?"
"That should be easy to figure out, I'm conscience!" Miss Go happily explained.
"Let me guess, you're here to try and stop me from going through with my plan, aren't you?"
"Of course I am."
"Why?" Shego asked flatly, placing her free hand on her hip.
"Because some part of you obviously thinks it's a mistake. Otherwise I wouldn't be here."
"Okay yeah I admit, this is a bit extreme, but what other choice do I have?"
"You could always try to be good again."
Shego scoffed at that remark. "Please! Like I could go through all that crap again. And besides, who would take me even if I were to go back to being a hero?"
"Well your brothers are always there for you," Miss Go pointed out.
Shego narrowed her eyes in a deadly glare at her reflection.
"See the fact that you'd even bring that up makes me wonder if you really are a piece of me."
"Alright, alright, I admit that was a bad example. But Stevie really seemed to like you. Well...me...er...us!" the reflection sighed. "You know what I'm trying to say."
"Yeah I do, and I'd prefer not to relive that experience. Probably one of the worst mistakes of my life."
"Oh come on, you have fun, admit it," Miss Go prompted, leaning forward a bit.
"Well...maybe," Shego hesitantly admitted. "But that's mostly because Kimmie was there."
"Yeah...she did seem to help things along."
"Which brings us right back to the original problem; I'm not with Kimmie and I probably never will be unless I go with this idea," Shego said, holding up the baggie.
"But it just seems so wrong and unnatural."
"'Wrong and unnatural' is talking to a different reflection of yourself." Shego sighed. "But I know what you mean. And you better than anyone know I really don't like this idea."
"Then don't do it. You can find some other way to work it out."
"How?! Tell me, do you really have any better ideas?!"
Shego inadvertently after her outburst and when she focused on the mirror again, she saw Miss Go had disappeared and was replaced by her actual reflection.
"That's what I thought," she said triumphantly before heading out of her room.
She made her way quickly through the hallways, ignoring every person or thing around her as she made a beeline towards the main lab. When she got there she was not surprised to find Drakken hunched over his computer and no doubt working on his next latest and "greatest" evil scheme. Without any notice, she strode over to him, grabbed the back of his chair and swung him around to face her. He let out a started screech, not unlike that of a little girl, but quickly recovered and glared at her.
"Shego! What have I told you about-" he started, but she placed a hand over his lips to shut him up.
"Zip it doc," she ordered as she held up the baggie with her other hand. "Now listen to me very closely, I have an idea I'm sure you're going to love."
To Be Continued...
Author's Notes: OK, first off, I want to say that the song I used is called "Hallelujah" as sung by Rufus Wainwright off the "Shrek" soundtrack. I've heard a few other versions of it but I don't know who they belong to so this is the version I'm going with. It might night quite fit the scene as far as lyrics go, but if you look it up and listen to it the overall feeling works well. Plus it's just a song I really like and wanted to use somewhere and that seemed really fitting to me. Hopefully it didn't distract too much from the flow of the scene and in fact enhanced. That's what I was shooting for at least. Let me know how I did, OK?
Secondly, I know some of you are probably waiting for the second part to Shin's "Spotlight" special, but this chapter was just screaming to be written. The fact that I was able to get it written up in three days should tell you something. It's an idea that's been floating around in my head for awhile now. Oddly enough it was inspired some by Beeftony's "Hate Is Such A Strong Word" in which he said he wrong because there were not a lot of "Kim goes bad for Shego" fics whereas there are plenty of "Shego going good for Kim" fics. So as usual I thought of how I would pull off something like that and...well this fic is the result of it.
Now I know it looks at the moment like Kim won't be going bad and will be staying with Ron and...well you'd be right. If you're wondering how that's going to work with her being with Shego...well then you better just stay tuned. I'm sure some of you already worked out what Shego has planned but for those of you who haven't...be sure to come back and see exactly what's going to happen. It'll be fun. And kinda sad in some parts, but overall it should be a good time for everyone.
See ya guys next time!
