"Are you sure you want to do this?" Kim asked her gloomy boyfriend across the kitchen table.
Ron couldn't even bring his eyes up to meet hers, his fingers tapping nervously on a closed laptop. "I think this is for the best. For both of us."
Kim could only shake her head. "This is no big deal. We can work through this."
At that, Ron finally showed his face to her. The look on his face was an incredulous one. "Work through THIS? Kim, I embarrassed you! In front of the whole world!"
"Overreact much?" Kim tried to take his hands into hers, but he pulled them away in shame.
"Kim, this is not overreacting."
A small smirk crossed Kim's face. "So you think you're not freaking out right now?"
Ron stood up from the table and walked towards one of the kitchen windows. "Of course I'm freaking out, but this..." Instead of continuing his sentence, he quickly peeled back the window's curtain. Suddenly the room was filled with innumerable flashes of light coming from the other side of the window. The young couple watched as dozens of photographers held their cameras at the ready, taking as many pictures as they could, battling each other for position as if they were fighting for a rebound during a game of basketball. They all shouted questions through the closed window... at least, that's what Kim and Ron would have to assume they were shouting, as forty people yelling forty things at the same two people at the same time made individual voices difficult to distinguish. After a few moments, Ron closed the curtain and turned back to his girlfriend. "THIS is freakout-worthy!"
Kim walked to Ron and put his arm around drew him in for a sidehug. "You know this is just going to blow over by the end of the day."
"And what if it doesn't?" snapped Ron.
Kim let out a slight chuckle. "Then we simply put out a press release, explain the situation, and boom, back to normal."
The chuckle did not go unnoticed. "How can you laugh about this?"
"Ummm..." Kim paused in mock thought. "Because it's funny."
"So not funny," replied Ron.
"Yes it is!" she cried as she gave her boyfriend a hearty shake. "This is exactly the type of thing that you'd find hilarious if it wasn't happening to us."
Ron worked his way out of Kim's grip. "But it is happening to us, and it's my fault."
Kim's face grew serious as she took his face in her hands. "Four things, Mister Stoppable. One: it was a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes. Don't let it get you down. Two: if I'm not going to beat you up over this, you shouldn't beat yourself up over this. Three:" She technically said nothing, but the passion in the kiss she gave Ron spoke volumes.
Ron needed a moment to catch his breath. "Not that I'm complaining, but what does that have to do with our situation?"
A slight blush came over her face. "Nothing... I just like kissing you."
Ron's smile started to return. "Fine by me."
Kim regained her composure. "And four, it's not your fault. It's your phone's fault."
After a moment of contemplation, Ron sighed. "You're right, KP." At that, he walked to the garbage can near the kitchen sink. He then made a big show of pulling a so-called-smart-phone out of his back pocket, held it over the can and unceremoniously dropped it into the trash.
Kim raised an eyebrow at her boyfriend. "You know, turning off the auto-correct feature would've been more efficient."
Ron shook his head as he brushed his hands together, as if wiping dirt off of them. "KP, that was the phone that sullied your name. I can't let it get away with that. It must be held accountable for its actions."
At that, Kim grinned and walked towards her boyfriend. "As wasteful as that was, I am honored that you'd do that to defend my name." She found her way under his protective arm. "I'm so lucky to have you as a boyfriend. And Team Possible is so lucky to have you as public relations director."
Ron smiled at her. "Nope. Still quitting."
Kim frowned. "Oh, come on!"
Ron reached down and grabbed the laptop, opening it and holding it in Kim's face. "Wade is obviously much better at it than me. Need I remind you that I started THIS?"
As the screen came back to life, Kim reread the series of Tweets that had started this madness.

Kim couldn't help but smile. "Well... on the plus side, we are trending worldwide."
Ron buried his face in his hands. "Not. Helping."
