I'm back with another chapter. Sorry I haven't updated in awhile, but I got three KP stories going right now so it could a while between updates. On a more tragic note, my brother's, girlfriend's brother passed away on Oct. 11 at the tender young age of 18. So I'm dedicating this chapter to his memory. On a more positive note, this chapter has some Ron/Yori in it. Now, on with the chapter.
"Excuse me, but what are you doing to my car?"
"Actually, it's my…Kim?"
"I haven't seen you in years"
"Do I know you?"
"You mean you don't recognize your tech genius friend?"
"Wade? You look so different" Wade now stood 5'8 with medium length black hair, a small goatee, and a lean semi muscular build.
"It has been awhile. You haven't aged a day" Suddenly Jim and Tim came outside with sodas in hand. "Hey guys, look whose back!" Wade called excitedly. Jim and Tim nearly dropped their sodas in shock.
"Kim!" they yelled happily running up to her and engulfing her in a hug nearly knocking her over.
"Whoa, you guys have grown" Jim and Tim are now 6'1 with some muscle and Jim grew a beard and mustache so people could tell them apart.
"Mom and dad will be glad to see you're ok"
"Where are they?"
"Dad's working late at the space center…" Tim started.
"And Mom's picking up dinner" Jim finished.
"Speaking of which, I gotta go guys" Wade said as he cleaned his hands on an oil rag.
"Where're you off to?"
"He's going to have dinner with his girlfriend" Tim clarified.
"Wade? You have a girlfriend?"
"Is it really so hard to believe?" Wade asked in a mock annoyed tone.
"Oh, uh…of course not" Kim stammered.
"Gotcha" Wade said with a grin making the Tweebs laugh a little.
"Same old Kim" Jim said when he stopped laughing.
"Literally" Tim joked making Jim and Wade crack-up again.
"So, who's the lucky lady?" Kim asked once the laughing ceased.
"You remember Olivia?"
"You're still dating Olivia?!"
"Well, yeah, but it's kind of a long story"
"Tell me later. Oh, before I forget is there anyway you guys can send me back to the past?"
"Well, we have been working on a way, but it's still in the testing stages"
"Oh, ok. So tell me, what have you guys been up to?"
"Well, since you've been gone we've graduated college and the four of us own our own garage where we repair and customize cars"
"Four of you?"
"Us three and Ron"
"Ron? You've got Ron has a partner?"
"Yeah, he's in charge of finances"
"What do you mean?"
"He's donated a lot of money to help pay the expenses of the business"
Kim was about to say something when a car pulled into the driveway and a moment later Mrs. P. got out and opened the trunk.
"Boys, I could use some help with the groceries"
"Coming!" they called in unison heading over to help with Kim and Wade following behind.
"Here take these bags, thanks boys"
"Need some help?"
"Thank you very much Wade" she said as he took some bags from the trunk. Mrs. P. then grabbed some herself and headed in completely ignoring Kim who just shrugged and grabbed the last few bags and followed her mother inside. After placing the bags on the counter Mrs. P. turned around and screamed.
Meanwhile 10 years earlier…
"OW!" Drakken yelled for about the 20th time that day after getting zapped trying to fix the time machine. Shego watched with a very amused expression.
"You'd think that would get old after awhile, but it's still funny"
"Stow it Shego" After several moments of silence Shego sensed something was about to happen.
'3-2-1' Shego mentally counted.
"Yep, still funny"
"Zip the lip and help me fix this damn machine"
"Alright, what do I have to do?"
"Can you hand me a screwdriver?"
"No problem, doc" Shego said as she handed him the tool.
"Thank you" said Drakken as he continued to work. "I think I found the problem"
"Give the man a prize"
"Do you always have to be so sarcastic?"
"Let me think, um, yeah"
"Like the old saying goes, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all'"
"But then I'd have nothing to say" Shego said with a smirk.
"At least then it would be quiet for once" said Drakken, but immediately regretted it. Shego's smirk was replaced by a scowl and her hands were somewhat lit. "Uh, Shego, I didn't mean it. It just slipped out" Fortunately for him, right before Shego strangled him; they were interrupted by Ron along with a dozen or so GJ agents.
"Oh great, the buffoons back"
"And he sent in the clowns" At this point GJ's best agent, Will Du, walked up to Drakken.
"Here's how it's going to work, we've brought in GJ's best scientists to help get this thing up and running so we can help rescue Kim" his voice seemed to go up a little when he said 'Kim.' A fact Shego noted.
"So your, like what, Kim's boyfriend or something?" It took everything Will had to keep from blushing at the question.
"I merely worked with Miss Possible…once"
"I'm sure it was a pleasurable experience"
"Are you kidding? They practically fought the whole time"
"I knew she'd never like a candy ass like you" Will's eye's widened in shock. No one usually had the gall to say something like that to him. Ron censing danger decided to interject.
"Now, let's not forget the mission at hand. Remember, Kim's life could be at stake"
"You're right. Besides, she's not worth it" He said as he started to walk away.
"I knew you weren't man enough for Possible" That did it. Will Du turned around his face contorted into one of rage.
"That's it!" he yelled as he charged at Shego her hands glowing.
And now, back to the future. (An: And I don't mean the movie. I also don't own it.)
"Can't breathe" Kim gasped out as she was engulfed in a huge hug from her mother.
"I'm sorry honey" she replied as she let go. "It's just been so long since I've seen you"
"I know, and I'm sorry"
"It's ok, you're here and you're safe. That's what's truly important"
"Do you need help with the groceries?"
"No, the boys are almost done. Why don't you go relax?"
"Actually, I'd like to go find Ron and see what he's been up to" Mrs. P. froze for a few moments. "You ok?"
"Yeah, I'm fine. If you are looking for Ron, here's his address" said Mrs. Dr. P. as she wrote down the address on a piece of paper.
"Thanks mom" said Kim as she took the paper and started leaving.
"You want a ride?"
'No, I'll walk"
"I will" After a moderately long walk, Kim arrived at Ron's house. She was pretty amazed at the size of it. While it wasn't a mansion, it wasn't a shack either. It was a fairly big brick house with a blue roof and a red front door. Kim hesitantly walked up onto the front porch and rang the doorbell. After a few seconds the door opened to reveal a very surprised Ron.
"Hey Ron, long time no see, eh?"
You can say that again" Ron responded once he got over his shock. "Wanna come inside?"
"Sure" Once inside Kim looked around the living room and saw a black leather couch along one wall with a coffee table in front of it and a fireplace in the wall to the left of the couch. Across from the recliner was a recliner with beige upholstery. All the furniture was on light blue carpeting.
'This place looks great' Kim's thoughts were interrupted by a feminine voice.
"Who's at the door?" said an oriental looking woman as she entered the room holding an infant.
"Kim, meet my wife Y-"
"Your married?!" Kim yelled in shock.
"Kim let me explain"
"Sorry, go ahead"
"It all started ten years ago…"
So, what did you think? As always comments, suggestions, criticisms, and hot fresh turkey dinners are welcome. Once again this chapter was dedicated to my brother's, girlfriend's brother. Even though I only met him once he was a very nice young man and didn't deserve to die at such a young age. He'll be sorely missed. R.I.P. Brad 1989-2007. On a more positive note, however, I want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. R and R please.
