Sealed With A Kiss

The Car Hater

Disclaimer: I do not own Speed Racer or any of his friends.

A/N: I thought that I'd write a series of one shots for Speed Racer. A group of Speed/Trixie romance pieces that follow up where episodes left off. I'm starting with a follow up to one of my favorite episodes "The Car Hater". If anyone had any suggestions for episodes they'd like to see a Speed/Trixie follow up to, please review and let me know. I hope you will enjoy this one shot collection.

He went to see her as soon as he had been able. He had made sure that the doctors knew everything he could tell them about what had happened to Janine before he went to see her. Trixie wouldn't have had it any other way.

She sat on the edge of an exam table, looking perfectly alright. He sighed with relief. When he had first seen that car wreck, his heart had leapt into his throat as he jumped out of the Mach 5 and raced to Trixie's side. He had only been able to breathe again once he had heard her voice.

"Speed," she looked up and smiled at him "How's Janine?" the first words out of her mouth were to express concern for another. He knew very well that she could have been killed in that accident but all she had worried about was her passenger.

He walked into the room and stood beside her "The doctors say that she's got a long recovery ahead of her but the important thing is that she will recover."

Trixie smiled "I'm glad," she said.

Speed put a hand on her knee "And what did the doctor say about you?" he asked.

She laughed, trying to erase all fear from his mind "Just a few bumps and bruises," she reported. She had been lucky, she knew that but she didn't want to worry Speed.

Speed moved so that he was standing directly in front of her. The hand that he had been resting on her knee moved to her shoulder "Are you sure?" he asked. After all, she had lost consciousness however briefly.

"I'm fine," she assured him with another laugh and a quick bob of her head "Don't worry."

Speed's free hand snaked around her waist and he pulled her off of the exam table into his arms "You could have died today," he said softly.

"But I didn't," she told him as she rested her head on his shoulder.

"If it weren't for the fact that Janine was in that car too, I probably would have strangled Trotter," Speed admitted.

"I'm glad you didn't," Trixie said as she let her eyes drift closed. In Speed's arms, she was safe. No matter what, as long as he was there, everything else, even almost being killed in a car accident, didn't seem so bad.

After a few minutes, Trixie pulled away and stood up "I think I'm ready to go home," she announced "Do you mind giving me a ride?"

"Anytime," Speed said with a soft smile. He draped his arm around her shoulder as they walked out to the car.

He opened the passenger side door of the Mach 5 for her and turned cupping her face in his hand "I'm so glad you're alright," he whispered as he kissed her.

Trixie leaned into the kiss and melted into his arms. In that moment, everything was right with the world.
