Author's Comments: Hey, how's everyone today? I didn't think I'd be back so soon with another story but hey, I surprise myself...

Decided to be really short with this one... no more than 1500 words in any one chapter, so you can read without havig to scroll too long. It's a nice short story... no villain battles today. This is just Kim and Ron together... hope you enjoy. And do send your reviews... it inspires me.

On to the show...


THE MOMENT WE BECAME...
Memories often serve many purposes… they stand to show us our successes or failures, so that we may be able to improve on them. They also serve

to remind us of the people around us, who we love, who we hate, who we carry respect for, etc. And also, they serve to remind us just how great and how unpredictable life can be. The latter could not be a better description of the thoughts of one Ronald Stoppable, who was lying on his back at a lookout over Middleton…

"Ron…"

"Mmmmm? He had a wide smirk on his face…

"Ron, you're seriously weirding me out…"

His eyes were closed, and smiling over something… it was nighttime. Her voice came to him as sweetly as it did that night…

"Hey, this isn't a one sided date you know…"

"Ok, ok… I was just remembering some stuff…" He raised to look at her…

"Do you rather the memories of your stuff? Or rather the loving girlfriend by your side…"

He rose up; taking her head into his lap… she didn't hesitate. She laid her head and he started playing with her hair… oh how he loved her hair…and she loved how his fingers ran through them…

"Actually, that stuff I was thinking about is the reason we're here… it still amazes me…"

"That your scooter could make it up the hill?" She said jokingly…

(Chuckling) "Yeah, that was amazing, but I mean, that I still can't believe that someone like me could be so lucky as to have someone as wonderful as you…"

It's been just over six months since Kim Possible and Ron stoppable have been a couple… fighting crime while dealing with their day-to-day lives. For the most part, there has never been really a dull moment. They complimented each other so well; even arguments and fights never really lasted long…something that amazed them both…This night Ron took her to the Middleton lookout… a bit off the routine Bueno Nacho dates… Kim loved it.

"I still can't believe that you put up with all my screwups…" He said…

"So not the drama… it's like you said back then… guys that were real are better. Real guys aren't perfect." She said, looking off to the distance…

"Yeah," He said in response… "I remember, but to tell you the truth I was scared outta my wits…"

"Scared… Why?"

"You weren't exactly 'Ronnified' at the time, KP. You were really stuck on Eric.

Eric… that name was almost as a profanity in Kim's mind… and heart for that matter. She really fell for his good looks and seemingly great personality. She thought to herself that he was the one… He was the knight in shining armor to stand by her side. But sadly, and violently she came to learn that those knights hardly really exist. He was a synthodrone. And he played her down to the letter…

Ron roused her from her thoughts…

"Syntho dude may have had the moves, but I had something more powerful…our friendship"

Kim blushed… she knew that their friendship was strong… but she never really knew how strong…until they were tied up…

"Yeah, that's for sure but why the scared part? I still don't get that…" Kim asked…

Ron looked at her briefly, then looked to the ground…

"I thought you were gonna tap the mat… all because a stupid syntho dude messed with you. I thought that if I didn't tell you something… you'd give up on the entire world when it needed you the most…"

"I really was Ron… And I'm not proud of it. I really didn't think I could continue being the heroine everyone thinks I am… I felt defeated and more than that… betrayed…"

It seemed that though she was defeated by Drakken, it was more so that her heart was broken… and that is what made her feel like giving up. She didn't have a thought or a plan. She was just going to let the world go by and fall… something that Ron could not allow…

"Yeah, I know you were hurt, but to see you give up? I couldn't see that. I rather my life end than ever see you that way again"

"As well…as…" Ron paused for a moment, thinking when he turned to her and tried to lift her spirit…

"Well… I really wanted you to know how I felt about you…I wanted you to know that there were better guys out there… real guys… like me."

"And I wished that you had told me before..." Kim said sternly

I didn't know what you'd really say." Ron countered…. I wasn't a guy… I was just Ron. I wasn't cool I wasn't the drop dead gorgeous that you ladies go for… I'm not really great boyfriend material. I thought if I did, it would have ruined our friendship. Like you said back then, it may not have been the right time... till then."

Kim knew he said this to her before… but every time she heard it, she felt her heart go a little Titanic like. She remembered how she was so bothered at ending up going with Ron, that she literally brushed him off…especially after meeting Eric. But then something else came to mind... what did he mean by he was just Ron? Then she realised... embarrassed...

(silence) "Mom told you about my pre prom convo with her didn't she…"

"Uhuh... but it's no biggie…" Ron laughed at seeing her embarrassed

"I didn't know how I really felt about you Ron. Truth was I used to get a little jealous for you from time to time but-"

"AHAAA! So you were jealous those times…" Ron quickly cut her off

"Ron!"

"Nuh uhh.. Not this time… I like hearing that…" he said to her ear… "KP was jellin for the Ronster…"

Kim folded her arms and closed her eyes in defiance…

"Grrr, fine! I did get jealous, but after what you said when we were tied up, it made me realize a lot…"

"What?" Ron asked expectantly

"Well, this…" She kissed him on the lips. A soft one at that… she parted from him, looking into his eyes…

"Ron, you made me realize that not all knights have shining armor… they have busted ones that are dull and their swords all dented…"

"Well uh, that's a nice tip for an old movie, bu-"

"What I'm trying to say is that real guys aren't perfect… real guys actually do something... they do it without seeking recognition or anything...They do it genuinely and out of true feelings…and you trust them with all your heart."

Now Ron was the one blushing… he knew he wasn't the brightest bulb, or the sharpest knife in the drawer, but for the girl of his dreams to acknowledge this and like him? Like wow…

"I can always be your knight in dulled armor…" He said jokingly

"Yeah, but it would be nice to shine it up once in a while…" Kim responded.

"I can't win…can I?"

"Nnnope!"

Kim just hugged her boyfriend. They just sat there again watching the stars of the night. Then Kim's eyes bore down on the little blue scooter…

"Ron, tell me something…"
