"Get her!" Drakken called after Shego.
"I'm trying!" She shouted as she threw another plasma ball in my direction. Shego never got me, that wasn't new, but she didn't actually seem to be aiming for me, ever. She always managed to barely miss. I decided to try something…
I 'tripped' and lay on the ground for a split second, I closed my eyes, waiting for the blast to crash upon me. Instead, I was pulled up and shoved back. I opened my eyes, now back on my feet. I looked at Shego, was that fear in her eye? No, it couldn't could it. Another green ball of flame barely missed me. One more test, and it was going to hurt, but it couldn't be in front of Drakken. I backed us up to an isolated part of the building where neither the Dr. nor my sidekick could spot me.
Another ball soared in my direction, a slight tilt to the right and it brushed my arm, cutting through the fabric of my suit and skimming my skin. A drizzle of blood slid down from the cut, I winced. It stung, sure, but I made the face more to see how Shego would react. I opened my eyes to see her look around before rushing to my side.
"Oh my god, I'm so sorry!" She crouched down next to me.
"You, sorry, please. How stupid do you think I am?" She actually looked hurt.
"You think I don't have feelings or something Princess?" She ripped a bit of my suit and wrapped it around the cut.
"Just because I fight you, doesn't mean I want to…" She looked at me in a way that made my breath catch, her eyes looked sad…
"Are you ok?" I asked. She looked down and laughed: a laugh that told me she wasn't.
"Yeah, I'm fine." She got up and pulled me up, holding my good arm.
"We should keep fighting or else they're going to wonder what happened." I was about to say something to her when Drakken yelled.
"Let's go Shego! This place is going to blow!"
"Again, how stupid are you!" She yelled back. Twenty, nineteen, eighteen…
"Shego, if you want to talk, you know where I live, right?" Thirteen, twelve, eleven…
"Kim, go, this place is going to blow up!" Nine, eight, seven…
"Seriously though…" Five, four, three…
"You idiot!" She pounced on me, making us crash through the glass window and we fell into the freezing water below. I looked up, the base they had made burst into flames as pieces of debris fell into the water around up. Shego swam up, still clutching on to me. We got up and we gasped for air. We swam to shore and crawled onto the rocks, my heart beating hard against my chest.
"You idiot," Shego stared at me, "what the hell were you thinking?"
"I-I…" I stuttered, the tears swelling up and started to join the drops of water that ran down my cheeks.
"Shh… It's ok…" She wiped my tears with her thumb, "I'm just glad you're ok."
"Really?" She nodded. A large boom resonated as another explosion occurred. I was crushed as Shego's body covered mine; protecting me if any shrapnel were to fall.
A few seconds passed and she slowly lifted off of me. Our eyes caught and I decided to do one last test. I leant forward and pressed my lips against hers. I expected her to hit me, jump back, do something, but she didn't, she didn't react at all at first. But then, she kissed back. Oh my god I'm kissing Shego, and she's kissing me back! She slowly lowered and the back of my head slowly rested against the ground. When she pulled back, a smile crossed her face, not a grin, an actual smile! I had never seen her do that before, and I loved her smile, so much. The sound of sirens approached.
"Well, got to bolt." She leant forward one last time for a sweet kiss before she sprang up and was gone.
A police officer came over.
"Are you ok ma'am?" I smiled,
"Yeah, I feel great."
