Disclaimer: I do not own Speed Racer.

As Speed laid in bed the night after arriving at Casa Cristo, the race that took his older brother's life, with Trixie in his arms, his mind wandered. He wondered if he had done the right thing by coming here. By betraying and lying to Pops, whom he had always had a loving relationship with, despite it's hardships when Rex died. He knew that Pops didn't approve of cross-country racing, especially this particular race, and he would be much more than upset if he found out that Speed had defied his wishes and come here. The thing was, Speed felt it was the right thing to do at the time, but now, he was laying here ridiculing himself for deceiving his family.

"Speed," Trixie mumbled, moving her head so that her chin was propped up on his chest.

"Yeah Trix? Did I wake you?" Speed replied.

"I can't possibly sleep over here with you thinking so loud. Stop worrying." Trixie told him, smiling.

"How did you know I was worrying?" he asked, genuinely surprised at the way she always seems to be able to read his mind.

"I know you better than you think," she said, laughing and kissing the tip of his nose, "and I can tell you that you did the right thing by coming here, so you can stop worrying."

"You really think so Trix? You think it was worth lying to Pops over?" Speed asked, still worried.

"I think that your not a little kid anymore, and Pops can't tell you what to do anymore, no matter how much he'd like to. Although you should still take his opinion into account. But, as far as the race goes, I think that these guys need to be taken down, and you are the only person that can do it, so coming here was the right choice, and you shouldn't feel guilty about it."

"You're right, as usual. I just hope it all works out the way it's supposed to, so this won't all be for nothing."

"I know. What would you ever do without me?" Trixie laughed.

"I have absolutely no idea. I wouldn't even be here without you. I'd be sitting at home moping, but I just felt like I had to do something you know? I couldn't just sit there and let these guys get away with it."

"Yeah, I know exactly how you feel. I definitely think we did the right thing by coming here."

"Thanks Trix," Speed said.

"No problem. You know, I think it's kinda sexy when you take charge and do the right thing." Trixie said as she placed kisses on Speed's neck.

"Oh really?" Speed asked, raising his eyebrows.

"Mm-hmm," Trixie responded from the crook of his neck.

"Well I think it's kinda sexy when you kiss me like that," Speed said as he pulled her face up to his and kissed her.

She squealed and laughed as he rolled over on top of her, so as to kiss her more deeply. And as their tongues entwined, and she twirled his deep black locks with her fingers and the night wore on, they were both happy knowing that what they were doing was the right thing.
