I own many things, but I do not own Kim Possible.

Author's Note: Hello everyone, hope all of you are well in KP land. Decided to just post up a story I had done some time ago... just never posted cause I didn't think it was all that, but nonetheless I wanted to at least post something before the year ran out. So here it is... The MOMENT WE CHANGED...

I just want to take the time to say Happy Holidays to you all and your families. Merry Christmas and a bright and prosperous new year.

On with the show!


THE MOMENT WE CHANGED

It is said by many, that the greatest of lovers are also the greatest of friends. It also can be said, that true love and friendship stands the test of time. For a certain Auburn haired lady and her Blonde haired lover, no statement in life could be truer…

"Uh, you ok?"

"Mmm hmm…"

"You sure?"

"Have I told you how much I love you?"

"Are you feeling ok KP?"

"Ron…"

"What? I just find you strangely overly mushy"

"I didn't know that something was wrong with that…"

"Don't move…"

He stepped over to her and began to feel around her neck... stroking her hair from her forehead back. She felt so much at ease…

"Wow that feels really good…"

However he stopped and stepped back. Kim was more than a little perplexed at his actions… and then something flashed into her mind… something that made her quite peeved…

"I DON"T HAVE AN EMOTION CHIP!"

"Heh heh heh… so I've realized…"

"THIS ISN"T FUNNY RON!"

"Ok, ok… I'm sorry. I guess I'm just not used to seeing you all gaa gaa over me like this… and it isn't even Valentine's Day!"

It was a fair statement. She usually was one to keep her emotions in check... rarely did she ever get emotional. Though she was a little angry at his insensitivity, Kim slowly stepped to Ron…

"Ok, two things… one, I don't need an emotion chip to love you… I think we already covered that. Two, EVERY day with you is like Valentine's Day. You're making me wonder if I even matter to you as much anymore… you've really changed…

The words struck Ron as if he had been shot. Had he after all these years forgotten what it meant to be sensitive? Had the countless days, months and years gradually cause him to become less of the person he used to be? Whatever the reason, her words did not settle well with him and he felt somewhat guilty for it. But he wasn't the only one…

"Ron, I'm sorry… I didn't mean to…"

"No, I deserved to hear it. You're right… I have changed quite a lot… maybe a lil too much."

"You know, after graduation, I never thought that in my wildest dreams you'd end up this way… I don't mean that in a bad way, but in a lot of ways I miss my daily dose of Ronshine…"

"Ronshine… now there's something I haven't heard or said in a long time…"

"Can't blame me for missing the old days… I literally left the old you and saw a new you when I came back…"

"Yeah… you thought I was a synthodrone as well…"

"Oh… I forgot about that…"

"Forget it… it's cool."

Ron took Kim by the hand and led her into the Den, where he had a small photo album… a special album titled 'just the two of usKP and me'. As he opened it a flood of memories came back to Kim… their pre K days, their first mission, their first prom kiss…the little (and significant) things that made them such great friends… in good times and in bad. Ron flipped some pages until he reached a particular sub folder titled 'graduation' however, there were only for the most, four or so pictures…

"This is all the pics you have of grad? I thought you'd have more than that…" Kim said in astonishment…

"These were all the pics I needed… besides, there's a reason behind each of them…"

"Reason how?"

"Each of them defines why it is I am how I am now… the moment of change…"

Ron directed her to one of the images… the image of them in their black graduation garbs… Kim was facing an unhappy looking Ron while her hands were clasped together…

"Wait a minute… who took this picture?"

"One of the other graduates had a camera around and caught us when we were talking about you and me…"

"Ron I really thought you were overreacting until you said what you said…"

"And I felt as if I was your ball and chain…"

{Flash to the past}

Middleton stadium… the site of great football battles… now instead of family and friends cheering their team, they would be now cheering their loved ones along the road to a new chapter of life… graduation. In the back area, many kids had fun joking about the good old times they shared… some nervously waiting for the time to proceed to the main field. The mood was generally a great and happy one… except for one young blond boy. He stared around; trying to find the words he wanted to say so much to the girl he loved so much. Ever since seeing her overwhelmed in a flood of college acceptance letters… (And a little help from Barkin) he started to see just how much of a star she was… and for the fact that he had not received any made it all that much worse… the feeling of being her ball and chain. Kim tried to play it off… hoping that he wouldn't have caught on to her gloating about how many weeks she had been receiving the letters… and even after their little talk at Bueno Nacho and upon leaving the school, she thought that all would be well and it wasn't the end of the world… albeit trying to convince herself.

"Well, KP. This is it."

"Yeah, it is…" he wanted to say it right out of the box, but nervousness kicked in…

"Yep, the big G....heh. The old diploma stroll, cap and gown shuffle down, It's the…" He suddenly felt a finger stop his lips…

"I got it…" Kim said amused…

"Right."

He felt so stupid for the nonsensical babble and knew he had to summon the courage to say it... he wanted Kim to be all she could be without him tying her down. Just then, the lights began to flicker. The entire field was immersed in darkness briefly and then in flickers, the light returned. Ron decided it was time…

"Look Kim, I dunno what's going to happen…"

Kim unknowingly cut him in speech, believing that he was referring to the strange instances that were occurring around the world…

"Wade thinks it's sunspots…"

"No not the power… what I'm saying is…. after graduation, you're headed to the stars… and… um…"

He knew what he had to say, but it stopped short of his throat… he didn't want to say it. He wanted that little world where Kim would always be around. Overcome, he lowered his head, hoping somehow she would not pursue it and hope he was just talking nonsense… but for Kim, it was something that took her completely by surprise.

"Ron? What?"

She lowered herself enough to see his eyes… and she began to realize that her best friend… her boyfriend, was really hurting… his eyes never lied. But he realized this and tried to look away…

"I'm stuck on earth, but I don't what to hold you back, so whatever happens, I'm okay with it."

Ron said this while raising Kim back up and stepping back slightly. She didn't know what to say… she realized that was this entire sitch was now more serious than she had originally thought. But it also confirmed something… Ron was scared of losing her… and she was scared too. But before she could pour her heart to him, Mr. Barkin announced for them to take their seats. She tried again, but his orders were final.

("It's going to be ok Ron… I hope…")

They proceeded along to their seats while the graduation theme played along, but all along, Ron felt as if he was a loser. He did all these seemingly impossible things since Prom… get his beautiful best friend as his girlfriend, become a star player on the field and help save the world… but a simple thing like is GPA would prove to be his downfall and he knew this was his doing… cutting class, not doing homework on time… detention… every step he made he felt as if the center was about to fall out from him and his life fall apart… though he was unsure about what exactly it meant when Barkin explained it. Just then he thought he heard Ron Reiger hitting on Kim…

"What's wrong? Is Reiger hitting on you KP?"

He glanced over to see her saying something, but it was garbled… he asked her what it was that she said, but thought it was Reiger who said something about having a confession. To which he thought…

("That confession better not be that he's in love with Kim…") Considering his earlier thought…

All conversation though was stopped upon Kim being called to the stage. It was such a wonderful and proud sight… not just for her parents, but for Ron. She looked so beautiful walking down the aisle... speaking a wonderful speech, floating in the air…

"WHAT?"

Kim began to float skyward. Ron didn't wait for the chance… he ran as fast as his legs could take him and as he hit the stage, he leapt for her… catching her hand. He tried to keep his grip, but he felt it slipping… he looked at her as she did to him… her eyes pleading somehow for him to hold on and not let her go… but alas, he could not. He fell to the floor in a heap and she drifted into what looked like a space vessel. Chaos and panic ensure on the field. Ron found himself alone on the stage…

"Oh am I the only one here who saw this coming?

His brief rant turned into sorrow… Kim was taken… Kim was gone. He lost her… again all the feelings swept over him like a relentless wind. But it was then that he made a decision…

"I'm not gonna lose you like this Kim… I'm gonna find you… no matter what it takes…"

{Flash to the present}

"And thank goodness your dad had his rocket… I didn't even care if I could fly it or not… I was just going to find you…"

Kim was amazed that though his story, that he was pretty much spot on with what happened, but more so, the feelings that he was opening up to her… but one thing caught her and she had to ask…

"Um… you actually thought Reiger was gonna have a confession about loving me?" She said so snickering at the thought…

"Hey I didn't hear you at the time… I really thought it was him…"

"You are something el…"

She stopped short upon staring at another photo… one she definitely had no expectation of seeing…
