Chapter 13; Broken Walls
Once the instructor walked off to address other students Kim stood from her spot on the gym floor, overly satisfied with her win. She stuck her tongue out at Shego like a child.
"You better put that tongue back in your mouth before I bite it princess."
"I that a promise?" Kim raised an eyebrow.
"Getting cocky are we?"
The red head shrugged before smiling. Monique and Ron walked up from behind the hero.
"OMG, girlfriend that was so sneaky! So great!" Monique praised.
"Yeah, I didn't think anyone was going to win. Nice move, making Shego worry about you and everything."
The goofy boy threw in, Rufus chirping in agreement. Kim was going to reply but Shego cut in first.
"I wasn't worried." She spoke quickly, catching Kim's attention. Monique was the one to speak though.
"Girl please, you were so concerned for her."
"No." She said through grit teeth.
"But you ran up to her…" Ron said, confused.
"Shut up buffoon!" Her hands ignited with plasma, her glare now directed at the blonde boy.
"Shutting up now." Ron squeaked and took a step back.
Kim put a hand on the taller teen's shoulder, immediately causing Shego's plasma to smother. She turned and got lost in Kim's olive eyes.
"Yeah princess?" Her voice noticeably dropped its malice.
"You're going soft." Shego's face dropped as the other three teens laughed.
"I am not! I'm still a badass and I can get whatever I want, whenever I want."
"Sure you can Sheeg." Kim said through giggles. Shego growled in frustration.
"At least I don't perv in the locker room you little creep!"
Kim stopped laughing and swallowed the newly formed lump in her throat.
"I don't know what you mean…"
Shego smirked, having the upper hand in the situation again.
"Oh I think you do." She moved closer to Kim.
"Oh you don't? Because I'm pretty sure you were watching me change earlier…"
Kim's face turned as red as her hair when she noticed the curious looks from her two best friends.
"Was just perving on me. I know."
Shego's face was now only inches from Kim's. She leaned in to whisper in her ear;
"If you wanted a show, all you had to do was ask."
She leaned in and stole a quick kiss from the stunned girl before turning and sauntering away. The three remaining teens were silent for a few moments before Monique broke it.
"Since when did you start kissing?!"
The final bell rang, releasing the students from their learning prison for the day. Kim walked to her locker and tossed her books in, not having to worry about homework tonight. She navigated her way through the halls and out into the student parking lot. The hero paused outside and scanned the parking lot for the raven-haired beauty. Her sight was blackened out by a pair of hands over her eyes. There was only one person who could successfully sneak up on Kim Possible.
"Really Shego? How old are you again?" Her voice was amused.
"Awh, I didn't even get to say guess who."
The response was a raspy whisper in her ear, causing a shiver to run down her spine. Shego dropped her hands to her side and looked at the hero.
"How'd you know it was me?"
"Besides the fact that your body heat is so high I could feel it radiating on my skin?"
Shego started walking to her vehicle, Kim following closely next to her. They reached the green motorcycle and Kim tilted her head.
"You took your bike today?"
Shego shrugged and handed over an extra helmet.
"What can I say? I couldn't pass up the idea of your arms around me."
She smirked at the shorter girl before slipping her helmet on and taking a seat on the bike. Kim smiled and rolled her eyes before putting her own helmet on and sitting behind the villain.
"You gonna hold on cupcake?"
"I'm afraid you'll like it too much." Kim replied.
"Or once you touch me you won't want to let go."
The cockiness could be heard in her voice. Kim bit her lip in anticipation before wrapping her arms tightly around Shego's waist. Both girls froze at the sensation, a shock going through their bodies. Shego shifted slightly and started up her bike after gaining her senses.
Kim rested her cheek against Shego's shoulder and nodded in confirmation. The bike took off out of the parking lot and down the street. Kim took a deep breath, slowly falling in love with the feeling of her arms around Shego's waist. All too soon they pulled up to Kim's house and the bike was shut off. Kim's arms remained where they were however. Shego took her helmet off and looked over her shoulder, a genuine laugh escaping her lips.
"Told you you weren't going to want to let go."
Kim let go of the other girl and took off her helmet. She was going to reply but her voice caught in her throat. The sun shone down upon Shego's face and gave off a natural glow of beauty. Olive eyes were quickly lost in emerald as time seemed to slow for the red head. Before she knew what she was doing, she dropped the helmet, cupped the pale girls cheeks, and caught her lips in a passionate kiss with her own. It wasn't lustful like their first kiss, or even chaste like their second. It was soft and full of love, setting off stomach flips for both girls involved. They slowly pulled away and looked at each other fairly surprised. Shego broke eye contact first and did something Kim had never seen before. Shego blushed. Her cheeks tinged green as she rubbed the back of her neck.
"Let's get inside, work on the project. You know."
She stood off the bike and offered her hand to Kim as assistance. The red head smiled at the gesture before taking it.
The two teens had been sitting in Kim's room for an hour now working on the project. Kim set up her tape recorder about five minutes ago, as twenty minutes of recording were required. She sighed heavily while twisting a bolt in place. The work had been quiet for the most part, both girls thinking heavily about the kiss. Kim decided to break it though.
"Your blush is cute." Shego's head snapped up from what she was doing.
"Your blush. It's green. I think it's…cute."
Shego looked at the girl for a few moments before blushing again and focusing on the project. Kim blushed as well.
"Shut up Kimmie, I don't blush."
"Oh yeah? Then what are you doing now?" Kim didn't have to look up to know the green tint was still present.
"I don't know okay? I just…" The onyx haired girl sounded frustrated as she put some pieces together.
"What is it?" Kim paused from her work and looked up.
"I've never had anyone make me feel like that before okay?"
At this point the green girl had looked up as well, locking eyes with her princess.
"I've never had someone make me happy the way you do Kim."
That lack of nicknames is what made Kim realize this was real. She smiled in response before looking back down and continuing the work in front of her. Shego's heart skipped a beat, thinking she had messed everything up. She was proven wrong however by Kim's next statement.
"I think I'm falling in love with you."
Shego's eyes widened and Kim slowly looked up at her again. She smiled, causing the villainous' heart to soar. Shego let a goofy smile slip past her defenses when Kim blushed at her. They both looked down at what they were working on again.
"You were right, I am going soft. I feel so not like myself when I'm around you, but I think it's okay…"
"So I broke the big badass Shego?" She questioned, Shego shrugged.
"Only with you."
"And here I thought it was impossible,"
"From what I hear, anything's possible for a Possible."
Shego replied, now learning from experience that the family motto was true.
