Shego hated Global Justice with a passion. Every time she was set to just lounge around the apartment for the day, it never failed that that would be the day that GJ called her up to put her on a mission. She could not wait until she was out of their evil (in her opinion) clutches. She just wanted to be free of them forever and she was counting the days, much like a prison sentence, which she thought was ironic.
She came into the apartment after the mission that she had been set on by that accursed agency, only wanting a hot shower followed by a nap on the terrace and capped off by an activity that would require her lover and another shower. She made it as far as to one step toward her goal, namely one step toward the bathroom, and then the phone rang. She growled in frustration; she would not put it passed those GJ pricks to call her right after completely a mission to dampen her mood further by dumping another stupid assignment on her right away. It had been done before; it was not like she could refuse, but her girlfriend could complain about it if it was brought to her attention.
She marched over to the phone and checked the caller ID. A cell phone number was showing. She arched an ebony eyebrow because the number did not look familiar at all. She considered the fact that maybe one of Kim’s friends had changed their number and was calling just to talk to Kim. She picked up, intending to tell Monique or Ron that Kim was not home yet.
“Yeah,” Shego answered the phone.
“Um…hello, I’m looking for Kim Possible,” an unfamiliar male voice informed her.
“She’s not here right now. Can I take a message?” Shego inquired.
“Um…sure. Just tell her that David called and I wanted to make sure that we were still on for Friday,” he reported. Her face was one of shock and she was thankful that they were on the phone and not speaking in person.
“All right,” she said.
“Have a good evening.”
“Whatever,” she replied and disconnected the call.
The pale woman frowned; her mood had gone from bad to borderline murderous rage. What the fuck was that jackass David doing calling their house, her mind demanded to know. Better still, what the fuck was he doing calling their house for Kim? And the best one, what the fuck did her girl have set up with that douche bag on Friday? Shego did not even want to think about it, but she did think about it because she did not like the implications behind the phone call.
David was a coldhearted, calculating bastard as far as Shego was concerned. So, what the hell was Kim doing with him on Friday? Why were they even in contact with each other? Oh, there was some bullshit going on, Shego believed.
The green-skinned female went to take her shower, but she did not enjoy it as she had planned on. She was no longer in the mood for a nap either, despite how gorgeous the day was. She ended up on the couch and watching a movie because she did not have any other way to waste time without ending up venting her building suspicion. She waited until she heard the door open and close.
“Hey, sweetie,” Kim called into the apartment to greet her lover wherever she might be in the place. How could she sound so normal, Shego wondered about her girlfriend’s tone. It was almost insulting.
“Hey, I’m in the living room,” the former sidekick said.
The redhead was in the living room in a flash. She leaned down and kissed Shego right on the mouth. She was about to go change and join Shego on the sofa afterwards, but the taller woman halted everything for a moment as soon as the kiss was ended.
“David called,” Shego reported casually. She wanted to see how Kim would react to the news.
“He did? Did he confirm Friday?” Kim asked as if nothing was up, like what just happened was normal.
“Yeah. What’s happening Friday?” the pale woman inquired without sounding like she was suspicious of the whole thing.
“I’ll tell you all about it in a little while. Let me get out of these clothes,” Kim said; she hated business casual, which was what she was dressed in.
Shego frowned, but she did not object and Kim walked away to change. She wondered, was her redheaded lover going to think of some cover story now that she was aware that Shego knew about David and their meeting on Friday? She was not sure, but she doubted that just a bit.
Kim had not hesitated when David was brought up. It was feasible that the phone call was innocent and the meeting was innocent. Except, David was involved and nothing was innocent when he and a female were involved. Shego just did not trust that bastard anymore than she trusted a starving snake to guard a wounded goat.
The olive-eyed chemist returned to the living room and curled up next to Shego; she was now wearing house clothes of a tank-top and sweat shorts. Shego glanced down at the shorter female in her grip and wondered if Kim was not going to go into explaining the Friday meeting with David. She was not about to let it slip Kim’s mind. She was even tempted to forbid Kim from going, but Kim being a grown woman, she could do as she pleased.
“So, what are you going to do with David?” Shego asked when she noticed her girl was about to nod off. It was a bit amusing to her that more often than not, putting Kim against her and in front of a television at the end of the day made Kim fall asleep.
“Oh, right! Totally slipped my mind. He’s working with a summer camp in his spare time and he wants me to come and talk with the little campers about pretty much everything I do. I thought that it would be fun. I mean, talking with kids and making them aware that helping people is a good thing and science is cool and everything,” Kim explained.
“You’re really idealistic, Kimmie,” Shego commented.
“I guess, but it’s true.”
“To you, it’s true. So, how’d David get our number?” the raven-haired female inquired.
“I ran into him the other day and we talked for a couple of minutes.”
“What the hell did you two even have to talk about?” Shego asked, even though she was actually demanding that information.
“I would’ve thought nothing, but he started talking about his kids and the camp. They all sound so cute.”
“Damn it, Princess, you can’t really believe that asshole. He’s a first class prick and you know that,” Shego pointed out. She also wanted to know why the hell she had not been told about when Kim ran into him if it happened “the other day.” It seemed like information she should have gotten the day it happened, especially since words were exchanged.
“You think he’s lying about the kids?” Kim asked incredulously. She could not imagine him lying about such a thing since there were easier things to lie about.
“No, I don’t think he’s lying about the kids, but I don’t think he’s being completely honest and you should know that he’s not going to be completely honest when it comes to you. He’s a fucking weed and you know that.”
“Yes, but I want to talk to the kids. I might be able to inspire them. The world needs good citizens and maybe a couple more scientists. I don’t see what he could get out of that.”
“Pumpkin, you can’t just expect him to just want you to talk to some brats,” Shego pointed out. Besides, he could use those kids in some way to try and tug at Kim’s heart strings and she did not even want to think about what other things he would be tugging at if he seriously got his way. She also did not want to think that her Kimmie might be planning to let him pull at those things.
“Well, that’s all I’m going to do,” Kim promised. She was only going to talk to the children at the summer camp, tell them about some of her adventures and what she did at work, hoping to encourage them in someway.
“So, when you met up with him, did you talk on the street or did you go some place? What?”
“We just talked in passing. I had to get to work and he had something to do. So, it was like a two minute conversation in the street. I didn’t really want to talk to him at first, but he was so polite and sweet. I thought that it was nice that he was working with kids and everything,” Kim said.
Shego frowned; her Princess sounded a bit infatuated in her opinion. It seemed that that bastard David had already worked his magic on her lover. He knew just how to get to her naïve and thoughtful girlfriend. Well, she hoped that was the case anyway.
There was always the chance that Kim could have been playing the thoughtful, clueless victim when, in fact, something more sinister might be going down. Shego glanced down at Kim, who was already halfway asleep despite the fact that they had been having a conversation. It was probably the former and not the latter situation when it came to things because her Princess was not malicious. Besides, Kim loved her.
Shego stood in the back of the auditorium as Kim spoke to a bunch of snot-nosed brats. The redhead had a way with kids, but Shego was not there for that. She was there to keep an eye on the asshole David. She knew that he had to have ulterior motives and she was not about to let him hurt her girl again. She was not about to chance something funny going on and she was being played either.
She scowled as Kim finished up and David went up to her. He was a pretty boy with a brain, a very dangerous combination because they seemed to mask the fact that he was an asshole. He had chocolate brown hair with hazel eyes and a smile that damn near sparkled like he was in cartoon. He had an even tan with a strong jaw line and she was certain that he got his eyebrows done because they were perfect. He was built like a sprinter; girls practically fell into his lap because of that and he was not one to complain. But to make matters worse, he was very intelligent without being smug about it.
Shego growled as David’s arm snaked around Kim’s waist as he led her off of the stage. She could not believe that Kim did not move his limb immediately; her brain started wondering if maybe the sinister situation was going on. She made her way down the aisle to meet Kim while the redhead finally removed David’s arm; it had hardly been resting on her waist for four seconds. He looked offended by gesture.
“So, Kim, how about we go have some lunch,” David suggested, flashing his charming smile.
“No, I don’t really have the time,” Kim replied. She had no desire to spend any alone time with David, but Shego thought that her lover denied him because she was there.
“You know, you should go,” Shego told Kim. She figured that had been the plan more than likely, but her presence was possibly screwing it up. She would let Kimmie go if that was what she wanted; maybe it was just lunch and even if it was not, she would like to get it out of the way. If Kim was going to sleep with the guy, they might as well get to it, so they could all move on.
Kim looked rather offended by her beloved’s suggestion. “What do you mean I should go?” she asked in a confused voice. She did not want to go out with David.
“Yeah, might as well. I’ll see you at home,” Shego said in a dismissive tone and she walked off, leaving her lover extremely puzzled.
Kim was about to protest; she wanted to go home with Shego, but David pulled her away to go have lunch. They went to a little diner that was near by, but allowed David to show off that he was driving a lovely little imported sports car. Kim was not very comfortable in her current position, namely alone with David and at her lover’s consent no less. David was not helping matters either because he put his hand on her knee, which caused her to jump; she was wearing shorts, so she felt his flesh on hers and she did not like it.
“David, what do you think you’re doing?” Kim demanded to know, even though she could guess since he was trying to caress her leg.
“Nothing. That was an accident. I didn’t know your leg was right there,” David assured her.
“Oh.” She glanced away; she guessed that was valid reason for him touching her.
“You look really good, Kim. I’m glad you’ve been talking care of yourself. You’re as beautiful as always. How have you been?”
“Fine, and you?”
“I’m all right. I’ve been better,” he admitted.
“You know things just haven’t been the same since you left me.”
“Well, that was really your fault,” she pointed out.
“Come back to me, Kim. I’ve changed. I won’t do it ever again,” he promised in a very smooth tone. He was using a voice that used to make her melt right into him and she realized how much of a fool she used to be.
“I won’t come back to you,” she answered with more conviction that he liked.
“What do you mean you won’t? We’re such a good match, babe. We belong together and you know that. I know it too now. Who else could be as good for you as I am?” he inquired.
“My current girlfriend. She is better than you on your best day. She cares about me. She’s faithful, loving, and supportive. I would never even consider leaving her, especially to go back to your sorry ass,” Kim replied.
David’s face showed a bit of surprise because of Kim’s language. He did not recall her speaking like that; she was usually so civil no matter what. Obviously, Shego was rubbing off on her.
“Oh, really? Then why did you seem so happy to see me? Why did you come to talk to my kids? Why did you have lunch with me right now? Because you wanted to see what I was up to and because you still have feelings for me,” he reasoned, making certain to not sound shaken by her words.
“Yeah, mostly hatred. I wasn’t happy to see you. I was shocked. I talked to your kids because it was for the children’s sake. I like encouraging kids to do good in the world. And believe it or not, I didn’t want to have lunch with you. I’ve moved on with my life. I don’t need you and I don’t want you. Shego is the only for me. I love her. So, goodbye, David and this time, it’s for good,” Kim said and she stood up.
“You left me for a woman?” David asked in disbelief. He had been replaced by a female? That just could not be possible; Kim was straight.
“I did. A great woman and I’m going home to her right now. Bye, David,” Kim repeated and she turned to leave.
“Kim, wait! I drove you here,” he pointed out. “How are you going to get home?”
“It’s called a bus,” she replied.
The redhead had no shame in riding the bus and she went and caught one to go home. She found the apartment empty when she came in, much to her confusion. She did not think too much of it, even though Shego had been acting rather strange for the whole day. She settled into the house and tried to erase her day with David from her mind.
By the time that Kim was going to bed, Shego still had not come in. The redhead guessed that her lover was partying hard, so she left on the lights for Shego when she did manage to come in and then she went to bed. She hoped that Shego did not come in drunk; the pale woman was strange when she was tipsy.
Shego settled into bed after a long shower. She thought that Kim was going to be in a deep sleep, but she was wrong. As soon as she hit the mattress, Kim eased over to her and cuddled up to her. Shego did not respond to the attention.
“Where have you been?” Kim asked curiously, even though she pretty much knew.
“Clubbing,” Shego answered.
“That’s good,” the adventurer muttered and she fell asleep seconds after that.
Shego stared down at the petite hero with a frown. She could not help wondering what Kim did with David, especially since she had fallen asleep so quickly. She decided that she would approach the subject in the morning.
The following morning had been far from pleasant. Kim easily and almost instantly apologized for even speaking to David; she truly did regret even looking at him. Shego did not even have to express her anger toward that when her girl brought it, but the fact that Kim had apologized did not stop the emerald-eyed female from barking about how pissed she was with what happened. The pale woman was not just upset that Kim had spoken to David, but she had not told her about meeting up with him.
Kim moved on from being sorry to being angry with Shego for practically forcing him to go lunch with David. Shego countered, telling Kim that she knew that she wanted to go. The redhead frowned at that assumption and Shego uttered some words that she was going to regret for a long time. The words had to do with calling Kim’s faithfulness into question and then accusing the younger woman of being a whore. Kim’s whole face fell and she looked like she was ready to burst into tears. She had not even been able to even speak after that; she could only give the green-hued woman a very contemptible face that would haunt the older female longer than her words would.
Before this happened: Shego and Kim went house hunting and they told Kim’s parents about their relationship.
