DISCLAIMER: Shego and Kim Possible belong to Disney. I belong to myself. Well, mostly.

SUMMARY: A little story about Shego at the beach. You can decide how you interpret the ending. Personally, I think you can read it either way.

A/N: As I said before, you can choose how you want to see the ending. I’m still working on “100 Short Stories” and “Prediction of Yesterday and Retelling of Tomorrow” but my computer did something to itself and has erased everything. Now I have to start from scratch again. Oh, bother.

Shego closed her dark emerald eyes.

She felt, rather than saw, the warm sun on her bare skin not covered by clothing. It was just enough to warm her slightly, yet not enough to be at all uncomfortable. Though, really, what amount and intensity of heat would make her uncomfortable? It was, after all, a moot point in the end.

The white sand was just the right mixture of rough and smooth in between her toes, her feet clad only in cheap plastic and rubber black flipflops – and unusual choice of footwear for this day. The pleasant smell of the salty ocean permeated through all her senses, and she took a deep breath, taking in the atmosphere and letting herself go.

This is life… She thought to herself idly, a small smile slowly drifting on her face.

Above her, the wind blew about recklessly and carelessly, and the various seabirds chirped and sang loudly. Somewhere, a great white egret gracefully dove under the blue water hunting for his next meal. Under the water, down in the silence of the ocean floor, two horseshoe crabs danced together, evaluating each other for a potential mate.

The sights…the smells…the feelings…

With her wild and long black hair freely being tousled behind her by the myriad breezes, Shego waded into the crystal water, inch by inch, and foot by foot. The cold sand squished under her feet and in between her toes. She took a sharp breath as the water first hit her torso, and then her neck. Within only mere minutes, her body became accustomed to the temperature change, and it because less of a shock.

In fact, it became rather pleasurable.

The ocean was strangely calming, and Shego strangely felt at home here. It was where all humans came from, and it seemed natural it’s where all humans would eventually end up, even if visiting, and even if only for an hour.

Or day.

Or eternity.

This was somehow home.

Shego opened her eyes. She saw the bright sunlight shining above her. She felt the cool water around her, caressing her, embracing her.

Closing her eyes again, she took a deep breath.

And went home.

Kim was waiting there.

The End
