Chapter 1: Heartbreak

Nightshroud: Well here is my first attempt at SWAT Kats fanfiction. I love this show, especially T-Bone/Chance. I also love the T-BonexCallie pairing. There aren't many of them, so I decided to write one. I hope you enjoy!

"Congratulations, SWAT Kats! You defeated Dr. Viper and saved the city," said Mayor Manx.

"All in a days work, Mayor Manx," said T-Bone with a grin. Out of the corner of his eye, he noticed Deputy Mayor Briggs watching him.

"All right, Callie, we have a lot to do!" said Mayor Manx, walking away.

Callie waited until Mayor Manx had gone back in the building to walk over to T-Bone.

"What can I do for you, Miss Briggs?" he asked.

"Please, it's Callie," she said with a smile.

"All right, Callie."

"I was just wondering if…you wanted to go out with me for dinner."

"Well…" he looked over to Razor, who gave him a discreet thumbs-up.

"It would be my pleasure, Callie."

"All right, I'll see you at 8:00," she said before quickly turning to hide her blush.

The two met later for dinner at one of MegaKat City's classiest restaurants.

"So, T-Bone, tell me about yourself. We don't get to talk like this too often."

"Well, all I do is tune up the TurboKat with Razor and help save MegaKat City. Of course I do have my life apart from being T-Bone, but that's another story."

Callie looked thoughtfully at the wine in her glass. She swished it about slightly before asking, "About that…do you think…you would let me see you without your mask?"

T-Bone looked shocked and then sad. "Callie, you know I can't do that. It could endanger you. I couldn't live with myself if something happened to you because of me."

"That doesn't matter. I'm not afraid of risks or danger. I want to know you, T-Bone. And I want to know about the you beneath that mask."

"Maybe you like T-Bone, but what happens if you don't like who's underneath the mask," T-Bone said, his voice sounding harsher than he meant.

"Don't say that. That doesn't matter to me."

"Then why do you need to know!" he said near a shout. Then, realizing what he done, added quietly, "Forget it, Callie. It was just a dream."

With that he got up and left. Callie remained seated for a few minutes, still in shock. Then she got in her car, drove home, and cried like she had never cried before.

Nightshroud: Aww so sad! Sorry if you were expecting more fluff in the first chapter. But don't worry, the next chapter is guaranteed to have a lot of fluff!
