It's safe to say... I own a Lancer Evolution VII, a lancer 1800 turbo, a car rental business and a taxi. But I don't own Kim Possible... that's Disney's job...

Authour's Note: Sooooo... how YOUUUUU doin? It's been a long time folks. Hope all is going cool in Kim Possible land. I have a new one I'm starting based upon the "MATURITY" fic written before. It's a work on the fly, so not sure how often it'll update, but I assure you it will...

Anyway, good to be back writing again and hope you enjoy this new tale I've brought.


(BEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPP……………)

Much like most mornings, the familiar sound of an alarm came blaring through his ears… trying its hardest to accomplish the job it was set out for…

(BEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPP……………)

A muffled groan emanated from the bed the alarm sat next to… then a hand slowly moving about, feeling for the immortal "snooze" button…

(BEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPP……………)

(Groan) "alright alright….. I'm up… jeez."

Hazy, chocolate eyes began to open… slowly at first, then wide with life. Arms outstretched, he spread them out as far as he could, while letting out a dull, yet pronounced yawn. As he brushed his blonde hair from his face, he looked at his clock… 4AM. Time to follow the routine he had followed these last seven or more years… Get up and run a few miles, then do a little Tai Chi, and finally set himself into some meditation that would see him greet the morning sun. But just then, something caught his eye that brought a smile to him as bright as the sun itself…

On the bed stand, a picture oh himself… and a certain Auburn haired woman… arms wrapped around his neck and her chin resting on top of his head, looking down on him, while he sat looking up at her.

"She's really back… man I feel like I'm 18 again… I'm so glad to have you back KP…"

KIM POSSIBLE in MATURITY: RE ORIENTAION

His feet eagerly carrying him, Ron jogged this morning with a different outlook… today it didn't feel like exercise…. Today it wasn't routine… no, today he woke up knowing that Kim Possible… the one true love in his life, was back home… not for vacation, but for good. As he ran, he couldn't help but marvel over all these years the adventures they went through as kids, right through their teenage adulthood. So many years had passed and still he was amazed that she gave her heart to him. There were so many others out there, yet she chose him. That alone made him feel invincible… forgetting the fact that he was the mystical monkey master…

His route usually took him past his old neighborhood… as he was only about five miles from there. He would run the five miles, then take a little breather, then briskly walk back home. To many, including his own family, he was thought to be overdoing things, but was far simpler when you factor the training he had to undergo at Yamanouchi… not to mention he did decide to train in Shotokan, Krav Maga and at least a few styles of Kung Fu. He laughed when that thought came to mind… as his lover was well versed in sixteen…

As he entered the "hood", he saw his old home enveloped in darkness. A new found register of memories began to open to him… his days of growing up with his best friend… the tree house which they shared many a day to hang out… even the brief dark moment when she told him that it was time to start growing up. Those words would carry him along to who he was now.

("Gotta make a stop by today…") he thought to himself…

Moments later he passed the Possible home and again, memories began forming… Mrs. Dr. P's wonderful cooking… Mr. Dr. P's threats of sending him off to outer space… bringing Kim home from their junior prom… and their first Kiss… wow their fist kiss… it was heaven and still was… it is said that absence makes the heart grow fonder… and for Ron it did, but also made him better mentally, physically and spiritually. Now he was a lean, strong man and maturity increased his good looks as well. He was smart and savvy… financially stable, yet humble… all because of the one he loved. He strived to be better for her, so that she would always love him… not that it mattered to her, but it helps to have 'some' goods…

And so he ran his set distance. He rested for a moment, then began his long brisk walk back home. By the time he reached home, it was 5:15AM. He cooled down and had a bath. Returning to his backyard, he thought that he'd just skip the Tai Chi today and simply meditate, considering he actually took a little longer at his routine this morning. He set himself upon the grass near the pool and folded his legs… with arms outstretched, resting along them. As the morning light began to show in the far reaches of the sky, he set his mind… closing out most of the surrounding noise. His body now relaxed he strangely began to have flashback he had not remembered in as many years…

--(Flash to that day…)--

Ron stood there admiring his girlfriend. She looked so joyful… so happy. And why shouldn't she? The world was saved… and she just graduated. She stood there smiling with Monique and a couple of her now former cheer squad. She looked so beautiful… bon diggety beautiful. But with that, he felt a small sense of dread. The fact was that he was the reason that she lived, but also the reason she almost died. He tried to be macho and it almost cost him the one person that he cared more than Bueno Nacho for… what would have happened if he didn't figure out he was the Monkey Master? And now she's seen what he had become, would she turn away from him? Would she think of him as a freak? Sure, she hugged him tightly after seeing him float from the sky, but was that out of sheer joy of being alive or maybe just happy we saved the world?

Whatever the reason, Ron had felt that she deserved to have someone that wouldn't put her in danger… not like that at least. He turned to his mother and father…

"Hey, what say we head home?"

"But Ronald, don't you want to celebrate with Kim and your other classmates?" His father urged on…

"Nah, I'm kinda not fitting in… besides, this is her time. She deserves this more than anyone else…" Ron stated, as his eyes gazed upon her.

It was morning and they were out all night fighting to save the world. But yet, he wasn't tired. He began to wonder if this was just the mystical monkey power, or if it was just that he was too depressed to be sleepy. But one thing did make him smile briefly… his little buddy Rufus. He helped bring down the mighty Lorwardian vessel. As he stared at him sleeping in his arm, he whispered softly…

"Thanks little buddy…"

It was as if Rufus heard him whilst in his dream, as he put a weak thumbs up sign, before curling back to position. As they reached upon Kim's home, a shock took their faces… it was completely destroyed. However there were many construction vehicles at the site, with a large crowd rebuilding the home. They stopped and spoke to a guy in a hard hat…

"Hey, is everything ok? " Ron's father asked…

"Yeah it's all under control. We heard the house was demolished and we mobilized a large group for the rebuild effort. It's the least we could do for Kim Possible saving our skins…."

Ron carried a weak smile with that statement. He didn't like the spotlight and was glad for Kim to take the credit… after all, she saved the world countless times.

"Well listen, when you see them, tell them we have extra room set up for them at the Stoppables' house…" Ron's father said...

"No problem buddy… I'll tell the foreman…" The worker said before going back to the job at hand…

They were all about to move off, when something caught Ron's eye…

"Hey, hold up a sec…"

His father stopped the car.

"What is it Ron?"

"It's KP's pandaroo…"

Ron exited the car and took the remains of her precious cuddlebuddy… with all the stuffing strewn about. He felt a bit depressed seeing this, considering it was one of the most important things to her. He reentered the car and they all headed home.

Though he graduated, though he had saved the world from total destruction, Ron felt miserable. Nothing helped change the fact that he felt a little like a freak… but more importantly, he almost lost the person he loved so dearly. After mulling about for a while and doing his best to repair her pandaroo, which by all standards looked almost perfect, he walked downstairs to his mom in the kitchen…

"Hey mom, I'm just gonna head out for a while…"

"Ronnie, what's the matter? You're not sleepy; you're not hungry… what going on with you?" His mother showing great concern…

"I just need some alone time… that's all…" He said drearily.

(Sigh) "I know you're not going to tell me what's really bothering you and I guess I have to respect that. But do remember we're here for you… don't ever forget that."

"Thanks mom… you're the best. Oh, and tell KP, she can have my room to use…"

"Sure thing honey"

Ron made his way to the Middleton Lookout. He actually loved this place because of some of the most special moments he spent with Kim. And also for times he just needed to be alone. He sat there, looking out into the distance, with his hair being ruffled in the breeze. There he sat; looking out to the sky… still trying to remember all that had just happened those few hours before. He remembered how he was knocked back into Kim and seeing her being held as a dead prize.

("I'm no hero… man I almost cost the real hero her life… yeah I mean she's here and all but that was like my most significant and stupid screw up…")

He remembered how he poured his heart to her... albeit the wrong moment, about not wanting to lose her, yet he almost did…

"Maybe I should just tell her to find a better guy out there… I mean having a freak for a boyfriend and almost killing her doesn't exactly look good for your relationship resume…" He said aloud…

"And maybe I could kick your butt for even thinking it…" Came a familiar voice…

Ron'r neck snappd about, to see Kim, out of her grad clothes stepping towards him... her eyes showing displeasure. When she realized that her boyfriend was gone from the graduation, she knew she had to find him. So many things happened and so many things needed to be said…

"K…KP! What are you doing here?" Ron stated in shock…

"I celebrate for one second and you disappear. And what's the sitch with this find someone else deal?"

He didn't answer… he kept staring out to the sky. She then stood in front of him…

"Ron, come on… it's me here. Don't shut me out like this…"

His brown eyes finally made with hers….

"It was hot at home and it's a nice day to take a little lookout at…."

"Ron…"

That tone only meant that he had no choice but to fess up… as so many times he had to…

"I'm not good enough for you…"

"What! After all we just went through you'd say something as stupid as that?" Kim yelled at him

"I ALMOST KILLED YOU!!" He blasted… causing Kim for the second time to become speechless…

"Whadda you want to hear KP… the truth? I'm a big loser who got a grade point average that most colleges run from… I'm a dufus who's got a great, smart girlfriend that I constantly hold back… scared to lose her to better when she leaves for college somewhere and most of all I'm a loser that almost got you killed when I stupidly tried to be macho and if it weren't for me becoming a FREAK, you'd be a trophy head now! Is that what you wanna hear KP?"

He stood at her now with tears in his eyes. Everything that was deep in him he let out… he felt his body go a little weak….

"I'm sorry... I didn't mean to yell at you…" He said slowly and began to walk off.

But just then, she held his arm and pulled him back to her. Without even saying a word, she held him in her arms… and then kissed him with all her heart and soul. As she parted her lips from him, she looked downwards…

"Ron… I know we've been through so much… I know how strong we are together. I'll admit, the last few weeks have been hard… I've been so unsure about so many things… and I've been scared. I wouldn't admit it cause maybe I have too much pride, but I'm scared to of losing you too. But you know what? I love you. And nothing can take that away… not another person… not the bad guys… not even death. And yeah... seeing anyone floating in the sky would make you speechless too, but the fact is that you saved ME. No doubt. Why must you believe that I need better than that? I have the best thing in the world… or the universe… YOU!"

She said the final words staring into his eyes. He could see her soul pouring out to him… he knew she was more real than she's ever been…bar none.

"Look KP, I just realize that I'm still a dumb old kid and you're so much a great, mature woman now…"

"Oh so you're telling me I'm OLD now…"

"No… I mean you've grown up… what have I been doing?"

"Helping me save the world and loving me unconditionally…"

"KP…"

"No Ron… stop wallowing in self pity… If you want to be better, be better. Do what you need to do and do it well. I don't need to tell you the things I had to go through… you were right there with me while I did it. And you feel that you can't? I know who I have beside me… do you?

That one caused Ron to think deep in his heart. He knew she was right and he had to mature himself…

"I got it…"

"Do you Ron?"

"I'll have to…"

"I already know it… so you gotta try..."

She said this while she placed her arm around his waist…

"Come on my hero… there's a big party on the beach later and we should get some sleep… what do you say to that?"

"Do I have a choice?"

"No…"

"Thought so…."

"Yeah, you'll get to show off your dance moves again. Oh by the way… thanks for fixing my pandaroo…"

"Sure… I thought you'd want that to sleep with. Oh and I told mom you can have my room to use…"

"Thanks, but I was hoping to have my 'bigger' cuddlebuddy to sleep next to…"

"You had a bigger one? Since… oh ohhhhhhhhhhh… I get it…" Ron stated while smiling. Kim rolled her eyes before having a coy smile…

"My Ronnieroo…" She stated laughing…

"Ronnieroo?"

And they returned home to the Stoppable household, where they collapsed together, after a full night of battle and day of celebration finally took their toll. Their parents all just stood there admiring what a team and how wonderful they were together...

--(Return to Present day… Ron's house)--

Ron was surprised of that vision of the past… and he couldn't help but smile. Now the sun had begun to rise, and his face was greeted with the warmth of the morning… but also the softness of hands around him and the caress of a cheek to face contact…

"Good Morning my Ronieroo…"
