Kim looked at the familiar squat building of Bueno Nacho with a frown. Today had been unsuccessful again, and now she was going to spend time with Ron instead of searching for Shego. Shaking her head Kim entered the building hoping Ron had been more successful.
Looking over at Ron and Rufus eating Nacos Kim sighed and shook her head. ‘Maybe I should go out tonight after Ron goes home.’
Kim took her usual spot across from Ron, watching her boyfriend stuff his face full of the messy combination. Sometimes it was hard to believe that they were dating, mostly because very little had changed between them. Sure they went out occasionally, but they still acted the same around each other. ‘Am I doing something wrong?’ Kim thought while scratching Rufus’s back
Ron looked up from his meal with a puzzled look before swallowing. “Hey KP, don’t worry, we’ll find her.”
“I know Ron… I just wish I had some sort of clue wh…” Kim cut off as her Kimmunicator started beeping. Pulling it out she pressed the receive button and frowned at the look on Wade’s face. “Hey Wade, what’s the sitch?”
“Hey Kim,” Wade responded while looking on his monitor, “I just tracked down Drakken, apparently he’s working on some new project for mind control, but the jewels he stole while you were… out were ruined or not enough. His henchmen just robbed a store in Middleton, and I got a tracker on them. Want me to send you the data?”
“Please and thank you,” Kim replied nearly automatically before pausing in thought. “Was Shego with them?”
Wade shook his head, and then winced at the heartbroken look Kim’s face took. “Kim, I’m sure Drakken might know where she is.”
Snapping out of her funk, Kim nodded. “Thanks Wade, we’ll go and check it out.”
Ron gulped down the last of his meal as Rufus finished his plate of nachos and Kim studied the map to her destination. She knew the route, and it was close enough for her to walk, but she wanted to get there fast. Standing up Kim strode out of the restaurant with Ron close behind her.
Half an hour later, Kim kicked in the doors to Drakken’s main lab her eyes gleaming with anger. Storming towards Drakken with Ron in tow she gritted her teeth as the blue scientist looked up from his latest device. “Kim Possible, how’d you get here?”
“I walked,” Kim growled out as she stalked towards Drakken. The blue-skinned scientist could tell by the dangerous gleam in her eyes that he was in deep trouble.
Ron taking Kim’s actions as a cue offered, “Talk to me… or talk to her, your choice.”
Drakken let out an ‘eep’ before turning and slamming his hand down on a big red button, calling in his latest batch of synthodrones. Kim turned on the drones with a snarl a second before she leapt at them, punching and kicking them to pieces. Drakken and Ron gawked as a white glow started to surround Kim’s hands and feet as they struck.
As the final drone fell into a puddle of green goop Drakken decided it was time to run, however just as he turned Kim’s icy voice froze him in his tracks. “Drakken! Get your blue butt over here, NOW!”
Ron blinked as he watched Drakken turn back towards Kim and start to meekly draw near the burning female figure. ‘Maybe he’s smarter than we give him credit for…’ Ron thought as he walked over to stand beside Kim.
Kim circled Drakken as though she was a lioness, and he was a piece of meat waiting for her to pounce. “Drakken… I am going to ask this once, and only once. The answer you tell me better be the truth. Where’s Shego?”
Drakken gulped nervously as he eyed the glowing figure circling about him. Sweat was beading on his forehead as he felt the heat radiating off the teenager’s body. “I… I don’t know… Really I don’t…”
Kim closed the distance her flames fading save around one fist that she raised up to strike at Drakken while her other gripped the front of his coat. “Wrong Answer!” Swinging her flaming fist at the scientist’s face she barely stopped when she heard something just at the edge of her hearing.
“KP!” Ron shouted as he grabbed her arm, lowering it down from its cocked position.
Kim’s head snapped around to glare at Ron. “WHAT?!”
Ron simply pointed to the puddle of yellow liquid forming at Drakken’s booted feet. “I think he’s had enough KP…”
“Yes…” Drakken squeaked out, “I’ll talk! She’s chipped, let me go to the computer and I’ll show you.”
“If you’re lying to me…” Kim snarled out before she flung the scientist at the console where he began typing away frantically. Signaling Ron to watch Drakken, Kim tried to calm down and suppress the plasma rolling from her fist. ‘What’s happening to me?’
After Drakken had typed in the code, his pupils shrank with fear as he gulped. “Oh… no…”
Kim turned her head to see the display showing the tracking chip to be in the room with them. Looking around with a small frown she saw a small blinking green light. Kim walked over to a tall filing cabinet and pulled a box off the top. Opening the box she smirked at the note on which the chip rested. “Drakken… Shego sends her regards.” With a flare the box disintegrates, causing Kim to back away suddenly.
Drakken let out a sound akin to a kicked dog’s whimper before curling up into the fetal position under his console. Turning towards Drakken, Kim’s eyes lit up with plasmic energy as she drew near. Ron stepped between Drakken and Kim, standing his ground nervously.
“Kim… stop this, let’s just gooooOOOO!!! KP!!!” Ron shrieked loudly as he flew through the air from a plasma explosion.
Kim winced at the sound of Ron smashing into containers across the room, before she turned on Drakken again. “Drakken! How does Shego stop this!” Kim cried out as she blasted the multi-million dollar rebuilt jeweled mind control device, turning it into a slag pile on the floor.
“I can’t control this!” Kim shouted as she blasted a path through the ceiling, dropping pieces of it onto Drakken and the entire computer system.
Dragging himself out of the cartons he had landed in Ron saw the destruction that Kim was wrecking. Digging out his version of the Kimmunicator, he pressed a series of buttons and fired a ray at Kim, quenching the white plasma boiling off of her. “Kim I'm using the experimental suppressor field Wade developed … you remember it was for Shego? … Its draining Wades battery fast … we need to get out of here now!”
Running over, Ron clipped the emitter to Kim’s belt so that the field remained about her before walking over to Drakken and tried to pick him up. “Come on Drakken, get up, you’re coming with us.”
“No… Ron leave him,” Kim said before kneeling down to look Drakken in his quivering face. “Drakken, stay here… if I have to track you down again… it will not be pretty.” Getting up Kim left the two males staring after her, until Ron finally snapped out of it and ran after her.
Catching up to Kim about halfway back to town, Ron pulled her to a stop, indicating that she should sit down. “We need to talk Kim… something is happening to you…”
“Doy!” Kim snapped before blushing and looking down, “I mean… yeah… as if the plasma wasn’t clue enough…”
“That’s not what I meant!” Ron shouted before calming down to talk rationally, “You could have killed Drakken… it looked like you wanted to and were really going to half the time.”
Kim sniffed as she played with her hands. “Look Ron… I… I need to find Shego… She knows what’s going on right? She can help me control it…”
“I… I don’t know Kim…” Ron said while kneeling in front of his girlfriend. “I don’t even think I know you anymore either… the Kim I know wouldn’t have gone off like that.”
“Ron…” Kim whispered with tears in her eyes before turning away and wiping them away. “Ron, I’m just tired and got caught by the adrenaline rush, that’s all… I just didn’t think.”
“That’s part of the problem Kim…” Ron said while hugging his friend gently about the waist. “You have always been a bit… aggressive… but this… this…”
Kim cut Ron off by crying onto his shoulder. “Ron… I’m scared.”
“I am too Kim…” Ron said rubbing her back. ‘For you… and of you now…’
Kim pulled away and began walking away towards her home. “Ron… I know you think I’m going psycho… but I’m still me… we’re still solid…” Kim whispered with her head down to hide the fear in her eyes behind her hair. ‘Please Ron… don’t leave me too.’
Ron smiled gently, trying to be more confident than he felt. “I know Kim but…” Ron said before clearing his throat. “It’s just that ever since you and Shego… Kim, I’m just worried about you.”
“Don’t be Ron…” Kim said distantly with heavy sadness that tore into Ron’s chest, “I can do anything… I can control this.”
“I know KP…” Ron whispered as he hugged Kim’s shoulders gently. “Let’s just go see if Wade can help.”
In the middle of the night, a familiar black and green figure stepped into the wreckage of Drakken’s lab to find the doctor curled up whimpering and sucking his thumb. “Princess did this?”
Drakken peeked out from under his console nervously. “S…s…Shego? I…i…is that really you?”
“Doy,” Shego said with a smirk, “I came back to tell you something.”
Getting out from under the computer, Drakken straightened out his outfit. “Well it’s about time! Where were you when I was being pummeled?” Drakken demanded angrily as he glared at Shego.
Shego looked at Drakken with a smirk. “So the buffoon beat you up?”
Drakken shouted in outrage while pointing to his black eye, “NO! Kim Possible did this to me!” After a moment he looked down with embarrassment. “And… I had a… small accident…”
Shego stared blankly at the bruised skin blankly. “Kimmie… did… no… no… That’s not possible… she wouldn’t…” She whispered disbelievingly as scenes of being kicked into the power tower flashed through her mind.
Drakken stalked over at to the console where he brought up a display of Kim’s rampage, complete with full audio. As Shego watched Kim tear through the synthodrones and then come after Drakken she felt her heart sink seeing the white plasma rolling about the teen’s fist. Turning away she shook her head to clear the images from it.
“Maybe it was all an illusion… maybe she just wanted to scare you… maybe she’s getting back at you for what you tried to do to her as Nemmy…” Shego muttered quietly.
“Does this sound like ‘getting back at me’?” Drakken scoffed as Kim crying out about her loss of control filled the air. After a moment he blinked and tilted his head curiously. “Wait… what’s this about Kim Possible being ‘Nemmy’?”
Shego didn’t bother to answer as she was already heading to the door. Reaching there she paused and looked back at Drakken. “Word of advice Dr. D. Don’t try and find me again, and don’t tell her I was here.”
“SHEGO!” Drakken bellowed, forgetting exactly who he was yelling at. “You work for me! Get back in here NOW!”
Drakken leaped back a good foot as a plasma bolt struck an inch in front of his feet. “Consider this my resignation. I need to go do some things, now I’d recommend you being a good little boy…” Shego said in a sickeningly sweet voice as plasma began rolling off of her in waves. “AND SHUT UP!”
Drakken whimpered again as he had another ‘small accident’. “EEP! Right… ok… Shego… Your severance package will be mailed to the address you specified.”
Shego turned and walked out sniffing the air disgustedly. ‘Drewbie… invest in some Depends if you’re going to do that.’
Getting to the doors to the hanger deck where her personal convertible was waiting, Shego sighed as she looked around wondering if this would be the last time she ever saw this lair or that crazy doctor.
Jumping into her car she sighed and drove out into the night, ‘Good bye Dr. D., it’s been fun.’
