Drakken hung back, uncertain. Kim was there holding onto his arm, not restraining, but comforting, Shego realized. What was going on?
“Dr Drakken, I’ve been looking for you, where have you been?” Shego demanded hotly eyeing Kim with active dislike.
“He’s been reformed, Shego. I told you to move on, didn’t I?” Kim told her.
“Reformed? Get real, come on Dr D.” Shego waved him over to her.
But the blue scientist just stood where he was behind Kim. Immobile and confused. He turned to Kim who looked up at him with those kind eyes.
“Drakken.” Kim said to him simply and he knew he had to stay with Possible.
“I’m with Possible now.” Drakken said aloud still gazing into those beautiful eyes as though hypnotized.
Shego’s fists flared up. “What has she done to you?” She demanded nearly spitting in anger.
“I’m told we used to be companions.” Drakken said, tearing his gaze away and it landed on an infuriated assistant. She appeared to glow with her rage.
“Told? Told? What’s the matter with you, you dolt?” Shego growled not understanding and advanced a step. “You’re my boss, don’t you remember?”
Drakken shook his head. Kim suddenly found herself holding his hand and fought against blushing. So instead, she concentrated upon Shego’s face. It looked like the villainess was about ready to explode in anger. Why--- just because Drakken was on her side now?
“You aren’t yourself, Dr D or else you wouldn’t be holding her hand!”
Kim stared. Was that what got Shego fired up? Drakken holding her hand? She hadn’t thought there had been anything between those two. Had she been that blind? She pulled her hand out of Drakken’s who seemed to reluctantly let it go.
“I’ve come for Wade.” Kim said ignoring Shego’s outburst. Must get back to what was really important.
“He’s here.” Shego decided to let them have that much.
Kim’s head raised up. “He will be leaving with us.”
Shego snorted. “Give me Drakken, and you just might get your wish.”
“Drakken is not mine to give.”
Shego advanced another step threateningly, arms raised to strike. “Drakken!”
“Please, no fighting!” Drakken pleaded but it landed on deaf ears. “Kim!”
Kim spared him a look. He reached for her, hoping to quell the violence that was undoubtedly about to ensue. There was a flash of green light and then suddenly Kim crumpled to the ground before he was able to touch her. Drakken stared at the girl dumbly, trying to make sense of it.
“KIM!” Ron shouted in horror from where he stood watching and rushed to her side.
Drakken knelt to where Kim lay.
“Kim?” He almost whispered as he touched her cheek. Ron was behind him, anxiously watching for any sign of movement from his limp friend.
Her eyes fluttered open as she fought for breath. The first thing she saw was a very worried Drakken hovering over her. What had happened? She must have been blasted by one of Shego’s rays. That was a first for her. That’s what she got for being distracted by Drakken.
The next thing she knew, Drakken’s lips were pressed against hers. Her eyes widened but she was still too out of it from Shego’s blast to do anything about it. He was surprisingly tender. Kim did not kiss him back though. But that didn’t seem to phase the good doctor.
For a few breathless moments they were lip locked. Then when she was wondering how much longer Drakken intended to kiss her, he released her. She gasped for air, her wondering eyes looked into his. He smiled kindly at her and picked her up with ease, then turned and handed her off to a gaping Ron.
“Get her out of here.” Drakken ordered the young man.
Ron could only nod, too flabbergasted for words for a change.
“Drakken! What are you going to do?” Kim called from over Ron’s shoulder.
“I must have a talk with my ex assistant.” He said calmly.
Shego had watched all of this with open astonishment. How could he have done that? While she was watching, no less? Was this just another heartless experiment of his?
“Drakken, how could you--- with her, that’s just-,” She could only shake her head in disgust unable to complete a sentence due to her rage.
“I saw you in a picture and Kim said you and I used to work together.” Drakken replied.
“What--- what happened to you?” Shego let her glowing hands drop. The pain in her face finally showed.
Drakken shrugged, “Like Kim said, I’ve reformed.”
Shego wildly shook her head, “I can’t believe that!”
“Well, I can’t really remember much of anything, but I like who I am now. From what I sense, I don’t think I’d like who I was.”
“That’s a crock! Somehow, Kim’s scrambled your brains! Being evil is what you do, well, okay, not what you do best, but it IS what you do!” Shego countered.
“I like being with Kim and her friend what’s-his-name.”
That last at least sounded like the old Drakken, but it offered no comfort to Shego.
“You used to like being with me.” Shego let the hurt into her voice at last.
Drakken shook his head, “I’m sorry, but I don’t remember.”
Shego walked up to him, staring up at his face, trying to read it’s familiar blue lines. But there was no hint of a lie, no hint of recognition. It inexplicably pained her. She reached for his hands and grasped them as she continued to stare into the face of her boss.
“You’d do all the yelling and come up with financially ruinous schemes and I’d steal the stuff you need and was damage control.” Shego told him.
“I wish I could remember you.” Drakken said softly.
“Stay and let me help you remember.”
But Drakken shook his head, “Wade. I came to get Wade for Kim.”
An angry, exasperated sound escaped Shego, “Kim can have Wade as long as you stay here with me!”
Drakken hesitated. To not be with Kim? But Shego offered a chance to recollect his lost past, even though he was pretty sure he wouldn’t like what he was shown--- and a chance to save Wade. How could he refuse? Two out of three wasn’t bad odds, but why did that particular one of the three have to be the highest on his list of what he cherished most? Perhaps Shego had sensed that.
Drakken closed his eyes and let his head fall forward, his chin resting on his chest. Shego took that as a silent acceptance.
“You!” She commanded one of Drakken’s most seasoned henchmen, “Go fetch Wade and bring him here.”
The large man nodded and obeyed, leaving Drakken and Shego alone.
“Why did you take Wade?” He wanted to know.
“I thought I could persuade him to help me find you. No one else knew where you were.” She paused, then relented, “I was worried.”
“You were?” Drakken couldn’t help but grin at her for that. “Now I really wish I could remember you.”
Shego smiled at that admonition. Drakken was obviously not himself. She wasn’t sure how she felt about this kinder, gentler version of her boss. Had all that come about just because he couldn’t remember how truly nasty he really was, or had all that gentleness just been there all the time, buried under all his emotional baggage and it took a memory lapse for it to surface?
The henchman returned with Wade in tow. They halted in front of Shego who was still holding onto both of Drakken’s hands. But she turned her head to face them. Wade had circles under his eyes, but other then that, Drakken decided that Wade had not been physically harmed.
“Kim and Ron are waiting for you outside. Go on.” Shego commanded Wade with a raise of her chin.
Wade raised an eyebrow and looked from Shego over to Drakken. “You coming?” He asked.
“The deal is if I stay, you can leave. So I’d leave if I were you. Tell Kim--- I’m sorry. I think she’ll know what I mean.” Drakken said.
Wade didn’t know what to make of that, but wisely decided to leave while the getting was good. He threw one more look over his shoulder at the pair and then quickly vacated. He hurried to the exit, but couldn’t help but flinch as he opened the door and the big black sky loomed overhead. Wade felt a moment of dizziness and thrust down his unreasonable panic and took one step out doors. He had to stand still as he fought against the urge to run back into the lair, anything was better then having to go out into the open! But Kim and Ron were out there. They had risked a lot to come and find him and he couldn’t waste the chance Drakken had bought him. So he took one, slow, painful step after the next away from the nice, safe shelter in search of his friends.
“Wade! Hey, Wade!” The shout was familiar and Wade grinned and tried his best to hurry towards the sound.
There were his friends, waiting for him. Ron was standing there on the cliff side waving at him and Kim was there, resting on a rock.
“Hey, guys, thanks for coming to get me.” Wade tried to just concentrate on his two friends instead of the vast horizon that stretched threateningly behind them.
“Where’s Drakken?” Kim asked as she got on her feet shakily and gave Wade a welcoming hug. Wade hugged her back.
He hugged Ron next and then stood there feeling sort of guilty, “Shego said I could go if Drakken stayed. Drakken looked really torn about it too, but I don’t think there’s any way she’d have let him leave. I didn’t know those two were an item.”
Kim was frowning, the memory of Drakken kissing her warming her. “I didn’t know either. Something tells me I don’t think even Shego knew. Guess absence does make the heart grow fonder.”
Ron sighed, “I’m actually gonna kinda miss Dr D.”
Kim sadly looked at her best friend, “Me too, Ron. Me too.”
