A Mutual Kimclusion

By SHADO Commander

"You know Kimmie," Shego sighed, "When I stood outside your window yelling for you to come out, I MEANT come out and fight."

"Ah," Kim nodded. "I see. That would explain your initial reaction."

The redhead paused for a moment, biting her lower lip nervously. "So…. does that mean you want me to put my clothes back on, then?"

"Um… not really. I seem to have forgotten what I was angry about."

"Funny how that all worked out, isn't it?" Kim grinned, wrapping her left leg around the villainess' middle. "So… did you like the poster?"

"Poster?"

"Black cardboard? Green glitter? Read 'Heart 4 U'? I was holding it over my head."

"You were naked and singing 'Voulez-Vous Coucher Avec Moi,' Kim. My poor comet-pickled green brain was having a bit of trouble focusing on much besides that."

"Just as well…" the barely still a teen hero admitted. "The calligraphy was pretty shoddy. Hard to write with a bottle of glue while you're ripping your own clothes off."

"And yet you managed to do all that in… what… 30 seconds?"

"Hey, anything's possible…"

"For a Possible," Shego finished. "Yeah, I'm starting to figure that out."

"Actually," Kim corrected, gently placing one dainty finger on Shego's softly smirking lips. "I was going to say 'if you want something badly enough.'"

"Oh."

"Yeah. 'Oh.' Like I felt when I realized that I've been wanting this for a while now." Kim paused for a second to snuggle a little closer. "Badly."

Shego gulped. She kept expecting to wake up and find out that this whole sitch… er, situation was simply a wonderful dream. It couldn't really be happening to her, could it?

But would a dream include details like the slowly warming metal floor beneath her… or her eyes beginning to water?

"Princess…" She began shakily. "I mean Kim. Are you sure about this? Really sure?"

"More than anything I've ever been sure of in my life," Kim beamed, her eyes shimmering like brilliant pools of liquid opal. "In fact, the only thing that confuses me now is…"

"Yes?" Shego finally whispered into the pause that followed Kim's trailing words.

"It's just that… since we're in your hovercraft… am I your prisoner? Or are you mine?"

"Semantics," Shego let out the breath that she'd been holding and returned Kim's loving gaze with a jade green glow all her own. "And does it really matter who 'won' as long as we both ended up with what we really wanted all along?"

The beautiful smile that had suffused Kim's face blossomed into something even more radiant and glorious, stealing Shego's breath away once more… taking along with it something else that the green woman was only too glad to give up. She hadn't been using that heart anyway.

"Well, if you're going to put it that way," Kim Possible told the woman she would hold captive forever. "I suppose it doesn't."

"It really doesn't, my love," Shego agreed, accepting the terms of their mutual surrender even as her former foe, now wrapped in her arms, did the same.

"Not at all."
