Kiss The Girl
Chapter 1: You're Gonna Miss The Girl
Disclaimer: I do not own Scooby Doo or any of the gang.
A/N: I've finally come out of my shell and decided to start writing Shelma fanfiction. This is my first Scooby Doo fic ever. It takes place in the "Mystery Incorporated" universe and will be a multi chapter Shaggy/Velma story. Reviews are appreciated but negative comments are not. Thank you and I hope you enjoy.s
Shaggy Rogers walked out of the movie theater hand in hand with his girlfriend Velma Dinkley. It was a cool night and the sky was clear. It was late and Shaggy knew that Scooby would be upset that he had taken Velma to see the new Zombies Alive movie. He had always thought that horror movies and dark theaters were a combination that would drive girls into the arms of their dates but with all the horror movies he and Velma had seen over the years along with all of the terrifying creeps in masks that they had faced in real life, it wasn't really surprising that Velma hadn't clung to him the way he had hoped.
"Like what did you think of the movie?" Shaggy asked finally, breaking the silence that had settled over them.
Velma shook her head "Zombies Alive: Terror in Taranto was better," she replied nonchalantly "The Zombies coming to New York and deciding to have a dance party in Central Park didn't really make much sense."
Shaggy nodded "Like yeah.." He paused and turned to look at Velma in the moonlight. She was beautiful. Shaggy never understood why more people didn't find glasses sexy. Velma was not just beautiful but she was the one person, aside from Scooby Doo who really seemed to get him and didn't just write him off instantly because of the way he dressed or talked, in the past several weeks though she had been trying to change him. Little things like how much he said the word "Like" he guessed that perhaps it had to do with that she was embarrassed to be seen in a serious relationship with someone like him.
Velma was staring at Shaggy. He was such a sweet guy. She'd spent the last few weeks trying to change him but she realized that trying to change him was only pushing him further away. She sighed, she could see how wonderful he was and she only wished that everyone else, outside of her, Daphne, Freddy and Scooby, could see how amazing he was too. She closed her eyes and let the night breeze wash over her. She leaned forward just the slightest bit and turned her face upwards expectantly.
Shaggy smiled softly as he brought his lips closer to hers. He let his eyes drift closed as well. Just before their lips could make contact a loud exclamation from a familiar voice caused them to jump apart.
"Rhaggy!" Scooby Doo said accusingly as he stood at the far end of the theater parking lot.
"Scooby Doo," Shaggy began, sounding a little frustrated as he left Velma standing on the theatre steps to go converse with his canine "It's not what you think."
"Ri rhink rou went to ree Rombies Ralive: Rance Rin Rew Rork rwith rout re," Scooby crossed his arms, huffed and turned away from Shaggy.
Shaggy held his hands up "Alright… so it is… it is like what it looks like but Scooby… You gotta understand that-"
"Runderstand rhat Rhaggy?" Scobby interrupted haughtily.
"Velma and I are like dating," Shaggy began "And like once in a while we need to be able to like do things just the two of us…"
"Rike seeing Rombies Ralive rwithout re?" Scooby asked sadly. Scooby had known that Shaggy and Velma were a couple but he hand' liked having to share his buddy with anyone, even Velma who in the past Scooby had been incredibly fond of.
"Like, I'll make it up to you Scoob," Shaggy offered "We'll spend all next weekend together, just you and me."
"Rand Velma?" Scooby asked, turning to look at Shaggy.
"She can come along if she wants to," Shaggy shrugged.
"Rot rhat ri rent," Scooby huffed again.
"Scooby Doo," Shaggy almost whined "You're killin' me here pal."
"Rood," Scooby scoffed.
"Scooby!" Shaggy was pleading this time "You gotta understand…"
"Roh, ri runderstand rust frine," Scooby retorted with yet another huff.
Shaggy was about to reply but the words died in his throat as the sound of screaming reached his ears. Normally screams were a cue for the teenager and his canine companion to run in terror but they both instantly realized just who the screams were coming from.
"Velma!" the boy and dog said in unison as they turned back to the theater steps where Shaggy had left his date.
In front of the theater a dark van was parked. Two figures were wrestling with the screaming Velma. The figures were both dressed in black and wore ski masks. Shaggy and Scooby both immediately ran towards the men. This was a friend in real danger and no matter how scared they were neither one would forgive themselves if anything happened to Velma.
Scooby sprinted on all fours, baring his teeth and barking menacingly. There would be time for petty squabbling later but now was the time for action. He was never one for bravery but the bonds of friendship and love can make even the most chicken hearted and lily livered of souls find their inner strength.
Shaggy could feel his heart pounding in his chest. He had only been talking to Scooby for a few minutes, he had been just a few hundred feet away and suddenly this was happening? He and Scooby reached the place where the dark colored van sat just as the two men had shoved Velma into the back.
Before Shaggy could do anything a punch from one of the men caused him to land on his backside. By the time he had righted himself the van was already speeding away. He and Scooby attempted to chase it but it was hopeless. After three blocks Shaggy could no longer see the van. He stopped and stood completely still. His mind was reeling. What should he do? He had to call the police. No he had to call Fred and Daphne. No, he had to call the police and Fred and Daphne. He pulled out his phone and started dialing.
"So you say that two men in ski masks grabbed her right on these steps?" the Sheriff asked.
Shaggy nodded silently. Scooby was standing by his master's side and attempting to comfort the distraught teen. But it was no use. Shaggy simply stood there with downcast eyes, answering the sheriff's questions.
"Can you describe these men?" the sheriff asked.
"Like, they were wearing ski masks!" Shaggy snapped "That's like the only description I can give you!"
"Rhaggy, ralm rown," Scooby placed a paw on Shaggy's shoulder.
Shaggy deflated immediately and shook his head in silence.
It was at that moment that the Mystery Machine pulled up. Fred and Daphne jumped out and ran towards Shaggy and Scooby. Almost immediately Shaggy was bombarded by a nonstop torrent of questions from his friends. The redheaded young woman and the toe headed young man didn't even pause to breathe as they shouted at Shaggy.
"Did you see which way they went?"
"What did the van look like?"
"Did you get a good look at the kidnappers?"
"RENOUGH!" Scooby finally shouted at the two sleuths.
Fred and Daphne stopped and looked at one another and then at Scooby. Fred was the first to speak, his voice was a lot less urgent in tone as he reached out to pat Shaggy on the back "Sorry Shaggy."
"Yeah," Daphne added, shooting her friend a sympathetic smile before giving him a hug "I bet the police will find her in no time."
Shaggy nodded. He still said nothing though as Daphne and Scooby guided him to the Mystery Machine. In all the years that he had known Velma, all the creeps they had chased and been chased by, all the scary movies the two of them had watched together, he had never seen her as scared as he had seen her just before she'd been shoved into the back of that van.
