The Affections of a Villainess


Chapter Four: The Jade Girlfriend


Middleton Mall

The last two and a half weeks of Ron Stoppable's life have been nothing short of amazing. During that time, he's been forming a close bond with Selina Goldberg. They were always hanging out together: shopping and spending time at the mall, going to Bueno Nacho, reading comics, playing video games, and various other activities that they found themselves partaking in during their time together.

They were very close, so much so that Selina even spent several nights at his house... and she made sure to stay for Ron's excellent morning breakfast before departing. She was still very mysterious, but that was a part of her that Ron liked about Selina. It made her all the more interesting and intriguing.

However, in their time spent together, Ron did learn some things about the beautiful, snarky, tough as nails brunette that he didn't know before. She didn't really go in-depth about her life, but what she did reveal made him wonder if Shego experienced a similar life. He discovered that Selina had four brothers: Henry, the oldest; Michael, the third oldest by 11 months; Wyatt and William, the twins and youngest of the five siblings.

Ron also learned that, much like himself, Selina was neither popular or unpopular in school, preferring to be a lone outcast who followed her own code of honor. But that didn't stop her from doing sports and being a overall solid student. Now that he thought about it, they did have quite a bit in common. He liked playing games, she liked playing games. She liked reading comics, he liked reading comics. There's just so much they could relate to in regards to each other, their likes and dislikes, and their lives in general.

She still didn't speak about her parents, most likely because it was something painful and personal that affected her greatly. But that didn't matter to him. He knew that, when she was ready to talk about it, Selina would tell him. Perhaps that's why Ron felt such strong feelings for her, why he was so greatly attracted to her. It wasn't just her beauty, her personality, or the similarities they shared with each other, but the way she makes him feel whenever she's around.

He felt accepted and comfortable around her, more than any other person in his life. It felt natural, as if he could confide with her in ways that would be impossible for him to do with anyone else. He told her all kinds of stories, revealed secrets about himself to Selina that he couldn't even trust Kim with. It was a risk becoming so close and revealing so much about himself to her, but in his heart Ron knew that he could trust Selina.

The thought that he was meeting her again today that, just like the thought of asking her to be his girlfriend tonight, brought a dreamy smile to his face. It almost made him completely forget about the kiss that Shego gave in over two weeks ago... almost. Ron still wondered about her from time to time, especially when he was with Selina. Where did she go? Why did she kiss him? These were just some of the thoughts that raced through Ron Stoppable's mind every time he would think about the beautiful, deadly, pale green-skinned villainess.

Ron Stoppable was so distracted by his thoughts that he didn't notice the individual approaching him until they crashed into one another, the collision knocking them both to the marble flooring of the mall. Shocked and embarrassed by the situation, Ron Stoppable immediately got to his feet and went over to the person, whom he discovered to be a young woman with a quick glance, he knocked over. Being the gentleman that he is, Ron helped her to his feet, preparing to apologize to her.

"Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to run you over. I was...", Ron began to ramble on in apology, helping the young woman to her feet.

"It's okay, Ron. You don't have to apologize to me.", Tara said in reply, revealing herself to the heroic blond-haired sidekick.

"Tara?", Ron mutters, his eyes briefly widening in disbelief as he instantly recognized the blonde cheerleader whom had a crush on him at one time, or rather still currently does.

"Yep, that's me.", Tara giggled.

"Oh, wow! It's great to see you! How have you been?", Ron said with a gentle smile.

"Pretty good. You?", Tara replied.

"What can I say? Life has been great to the Ron-Man.", Ron answers, taking his hand through his short, messy blond hair.

"I can see that. So... I was wondering, are you doing anything later?", Tara asked, hoping that she wasn't being too direct with him.

"Uh... why do you ask?", Ron responds, shrugging his shoulders slightly, at little surprised at how forward Tara was being at the moment, considering that she was often pretty shy.

"Well, I was wondering... if you would like to, ya know... hang out.", Tara stated as she tried to look anywhere but at Ron Stoppable, a crimson blush coloring her cheeks.

There would have been a time when Ron would be extremely excited if Tara had asked him to hang out with her. He really liked Tara, and if he was honest with himself, he still did to a point. But now, with Selina in his life, all Ron could offer the blonde beauty was his friendship. He could only hope that Tara would understand. After all, she deserved to know the truth, which is exactly what he'd tell her.

"Um... I would like to hang out with you, Tara. But... I'm kinda meeting someone.", Ron confessed, rubbing the back of his neck in a nervous gesture, his own cheeks becoming colored with a light blush.

"Really? Who?", Tara asks, curious as to who it could be that Ron was going to hang out with.

"Selina Goldberg. She's a friend. And tonight I'm... I'm going to ask her to be my girlfriend.", Ron answered, revealing his intentions/plans for tonight to the blonde cheerleader.

Tara couldn't believe that Ron, the sweetest guy she's ever known, was hanging out with some other girl who wasn't Kim or Monique. If that wasn't enough of a shock to the system, he revealed to her that he was falling for this girl, Selina Goldberg, and was intent on making her his girlfriend. If one were to say that Tara was surprised by this revelation, that would have definitely been a major understatement. And while Tara was very happy that Ron found someone he could love and who could possibly reciprocate it in return, she had to admit that a part of her felt a bit disappointed and envious that it wasn't her whom he'd fallen for. Nonetheless, she would be supportive and congratulate Ron in his success in finally finding a girlfriend.

"Oh, Ron! I'm so happy for you!", Tara said, leaping forward and giving him an affectionate hug.

"Yeah, uh, thanks.", Ron replied, a bit flustered by Tara's unexpected embrace.

"So... how long have you known her?", Tara inquired, honestly interested in this particular subject.

"We first met almost three weeks ago. We've been hanging out ever since. You know, I could introduce you to her sometime. I think you'd like her.", Ron informed, recalling every detail of their first meeting as if it had occurred yesterday.

"I'd like to meet her. What is she like?", Tara asked in reply.

"Honestly? She's so awesome and badical that it's unbelievable! She's very smart, tough, and fun. And she's so beautiful. I mean, seriously, she's drop-dead gorgeous! She's got these azure-blue eyes, long dark hair, and a bodacious body that's just... WOW! And her personality is, like... double WOW! It's really hard trying to describe her, 'cause I don't think words can really do her justice. She's like my best friend and my soul-mate... all in one.", Ron explains, getting lost in his thoughts regarding Selina, unaware of the dreamy smile that was plastered on his face.

"It sounds like you're really head over heels for her.", Tara remarks, a girlish chuckle coming out as she stared at the blond-haired hero.

"Yeah, I guess I am. I just hope that she feels the same way about me.", Ron said with an expression that was almost somber, one that made Tara want to quickly rectify it.

"Don't worry, Ron. If she's as close to you as you believe her to be, I know that she'll feel the same. Besides, you won't know unless you ask her, right?", Tara reasoned as she rested her hand on his shoulder, offering her friend a supportive smile.

"Right.", Ron agreed, his confidence and optimistic charisma returning to him instantly.

"Well, I guess I should be going. I'll talk to you later, okay, Ron.", Tara said, bidding her friend farewell before beginning to walk away.

"Tara?", Ron calls out, causing the blonde beauty to stop in her tracks.

"Yes, Ron?", Tara inquired, turning in order to lock eyes with her long-time crush.

"Thanks.", Ron said with a sincere smile.

"Don't mention it.", Tara giggles, more than glad that she could assist.

She then continues to walk away, sparing one last glance back at Ron and noticing a couple of girls giving him a good look over. Tara was well aware of the fact that many young women have been taking notice of Ron Stoppable, most considering him to be a very desirable bachelor/hottie. He definitely had the qualities that'd make him an excellent boyfriend. Whoever this Selina Goldberg is, Tara had to admit that she was a very lucky girl.


Activating the device on her wrist with a press of a button, Shego transformed into her holographic identity known as Selina Goldberg. She was about to enter the mall, stopping a couple feet away from the doors. It was then that Shego's mind began to reminisce every moment, the numerous hours and days, that she had spent with Ron Stoppable. In all the time she was around him, she discovered so much. He wasn't just the goofy, immature sidekick that she was once thought him to be when they first met a couple of years ago.

He was still amusingly funny, unquestionably loyal, boldly honest, incredibly selfless, surprisingly charming, and extraordinarily smart for a young adult of his age. And those were just some of his endearing qualities that she could think of off the top of her head at this particular moment. He was also a lot more mature, knowledgeable and insightful than she ever expected him to be given his laid back, carefree nature. But what shocked Shego the most was the way Ron Stoppable treated her from the very beginning.

He cared about her, more than anyone ever has in her entire life. He trusted her in ways that she thought that nobody could be capable of doing, revealing his secrets and confiding in her as if he'd could trust her with his very life. He respected her, treated her as an equal without judgment and understood her in ways that she thought no individual could. It made her feelings for him all the more stronger, yet it did not ease the uncertainty that she felt within herself.

He made her feel loved and accepted. It was unprecedented, something that should have been impossible. She hadn't felt love and acceptance in a very long time; not since her family was whole and unbroken. It made her take everything, including her original intentions, into deep consideration and questioning.

She admitted that Ron Stoppable was cute, even rather attractive when she considered it more thoroughly after she recalled seeing his toned physique on a day she dropped by to visit him at his home and caught him in the act of changing into his clothes. But could she... love him? Could she express her desire for him and the love that he had to offer?

It was these thoughts, these emotions that plagued her with such uncertainty. Shego knew that she shouldn't care about him, that she shouldn't have any feelings for him. But when it all came down to it, every single time she thought about it, she came to the same conclusion. She did care about him, and she did harbor feelings toward him. Their bond was growing stronger with each passing day, but she remained blind to it. It was only now did she realize that he changed everything.

Shego, one the most infamous and dangerous female mercenaries on the entire planet, had somehow fallen for Ron Stoppable. It was a revelation that threatened to completely overwhelm her. How could she have allowed herself to become close to him? Why did she have to feel this way? He deserved better than this, he deserved someone better than her. Yet, despite her self-loathing and denial, she knew that she wanted to be with him.

"Damn it, Ron! What are you doing to me?", Shego cursed in a voice just short of a whisper, seemingly unaware of the single tear that managed to escape from her right eye, slowly trekking its way down her lovely face before plummeting to the concrete below.

After composing herself, Shego began to walk towards the doors only for her to collide with some blonde. The collision only managed to stagger her, her attention then focusing on the young woman. She couldn't be no older than Ron, a few inches shorter in height, and was wearing a light blue shirt and a matching pair of shorts. Normally, she would shout out a threat or an insult, but with her current ordeal with Ron Stoppable still dominant in her mind she decided to let it pass.

"I'm so sorry! I guess I wasn't paying attention to where I was going!", Tara apologized, her voice timid and sincere at the same time.

"Don't worry about it, blondie. Nothing's damaged.", Selina responds, catching the blonde looking her over with particular interest.

"Are you... Selina Goldberg?", Tara asks, her voice almost hesitant in tone.

"Yeah, that's me. Wait a second! How do you know that?", Selina inquires, crossing her arms over her ample chest and arching an eyebrow as she stared at the cheerleader.

"Well, I was talking to Ron and he told me a little bit about you.", Tara confessed, unknowingly causing a spike of jealousy to rise in the disguised villainess.

"Yeah, I bet. Let's have a little girl talk, shall we?", Selina said, saying the last sentence in sweet tone of voice before reaching out and grabbing a fistful of Tara's shirt in her right hand, causing the cheerleader to let out a surprised squeak.

"Okay. First things first, blondie. Ron is off the table! So don't even think about chasing after him, unless you want to get hurt... badly! Got it?!", Selina hissed as she got directly in the young woman's face, keeping a tight grip on Tara's clothing.

She expected the blonde to start trembling in fear, or run off screaming, but the response she received was one that even Shego couldn't have predicted. Tara started giggling, then after a few moments she was bursting out in fit of girlish laughter. At first she was enraged by the fact that this girl was hanging out with Ron, but now she was just utterly bewildered. I mean, she basically threatened her with bodily harm if she would even dare pursue Ron in the form of a amorous relationship... and all it did was cause the girl to laugh her bubbly head off. She hoped this girl wasn't as nutty as Adrena Lynn, 'cause the last thing Shego needed was another crazy blonde bimbo trying to take Ron away from her.

"What's so funny?", Selina demands, still slightly taken aback by the blonde's demeanor.

"I-I'm not interested in Ron.", Tara chuckled, trying to suppress her laughter.

"You're not?", Selina inquired, arching a quizzical eyebrow as she stared at the bubbly young woman.

"No, I'm just a friend. Honest.", Tara answered truthfully.

"Good.", Selina said, releasing her grip on Tara's shirt and taking a step back.

Smoothing out her shirt, Tara takes advantage of the moment by closely examining Selina Goldberg. She was definitely beautiful, just as Ron claimed her to be. She was tall, had an ample bust, a fit lithe build, long dark chocolate-brown hair, dazzling arctic-blue eyes, a very pretty face, and basically everything that any male and most females would die for. She did appear to be a couple of years older than Ron Stoppable, not that it really mattered as far as Tara was concerned. She would be satisfied just as long as the love-struck hero, one of the few guys she honestly cared about, would be happy.

"You really, really like him, don't you?", Tara inquired, arching an eyebrow as she watched the brunette's reaction with a curious interest.

"What?! I... I don't know what you're talking about!", Selina exclaimed, crossing her arms over her chest as she turned her gaze away from that of Tara's own.

"Oh, I think you do!", Tara argued, noticing the slight coloring that was forming on Selina's flustered face.

"We're just friends! That's all!", Selina almost shouted, trying to dissuade the blonde from further interrogation.

"Then why are you so defensive about him dating other girls? And insisting that he's not available? I mean, don't you think you're acting a bit like a jealous, overprotective girlfriend?", Tara counters in inquiry, a knowing smile forming on her lips.

"I.. I... I just don't want him to get hurt, okay?!", Selina responded, struggling to get the exact words out.

"I don't believe that. Not one bit. The way you're acting, how protective you are of him, the jealously you feel at the mere thought of other girls dating Ron, proves my point. In fact, I think you're crushing on Ron, but you're in denial of how you feel towards him.", Tara counters, attempting to get Selina to open up and admit that what she has with Ron Stoppable is something far more than a close friendship.

"Shut it, blondie! I am not in denial! He's just a friend. Nothing more.", Selina retorts in proclamation, denying everything that the blonde was insinuating in regards to her relationship with Ron Stoppable.

"Then you wouldn't mind if I pull out my phone, give Ron a call, and tell him that you don't feel that way about him? I don't know if you've noticed, Selina, but a lot of girls are very interested in him. I mean, you said that you're only friends, right?", Tara suggested, getting the response that she had been hoping for.

"You wouldn't dare!", Selina hissed as she narrowed her eyes at the blonde, her hands clenching tightly into fists.

"Oh, I wouldn't bet on that.", Tara sing-songs, waving her phone in a teasing manner.

"Fine! Go ahead! Call Ron! I don't care!", Selina snarls, throwing her hands up in the air and turning her back on Tara, unaware that she was falling right into the blonde cheerleader's trap.

"If you insist. Okay, here goes nothing. Hello? Hi, Ron! Listen, I was wondering...", Tara said, speaking into the phone with a press of a button.

"No! Wait!", Selina cried out, rushing over and ripping the cell phone out of Tara's hands.

"Ron, this is Selina... listen, there's something I need to tell you... Hello? Ron?", Selina speaks into the phone only to receive no answer at all.

It was then that Selina looked down at the screen of the cell phone, discovering only Ron's name and his cell number listed on there awaiting to be called. It was then that Selina realized that Tara didn't activate the call, that the blonde had set a trap. In her haste to make sure that Ron would only hear the truth from her, the revelation of her true feelings for him, Selina was tricked into revealing to Tara that she did in fact harbor something more than friendship for Ron Stoppable. And she completely fell for it!

"Ha! I knew it! You really do like Ron! Wow! You've got it bad, Selina. Really, really bad.", Tara giggles, gleeful that her plan had worked on Selina and revealed to her, at least to an extent, the truth of how Selina felt in regards to Ron Stoppable.

"You... You tricked me!", Selina cried out in a mixture of outrage and utter disbelief.

She couldn't believe it. A woman of her intelligence, whom graduated high school and went to college for child psychology, was out-foxed by a bubbly, blonde high school student. It was simply incredulous. 'Pride goeth before a fall', she mused to herself. She never expected a proverb like that to apply itself to her, let alone happen in a situation like this. What's next?!

"Yes, I did. But, to be fair, you did set yourself up for that one.", Tara pointed out as she giggled in amusement.

"Leave me alone, blondie.", Selina muttered, tossing the phone back to the blonde cheerleader.

"Selina, can I ask you something? Why are you afraid of having feelings for Ron?", Tara questioned, gazing at the clearly uncertain and conflicted woman.

"It's... complicated.", Selina said, releasing a heavy sigh as she ran her hand through her long, dark locks.

"What do you mean?", Tara asks, taking a few steps closer to the taller brunette.

"Let's just say that I'm not used to caring for someone, or having them care about me. I'm not used to being accepted, especially not in a way that Ron's accepted me. And to be honest, I'm not even sure if I'm worthy to be with him. I mean, I know that Ron cares for me as a friend... but could he ever care for me as something more than a friend? Heh. I'm not sure if I can even comprehend what I feel for him, or this entire situation between us for that matter. I just don't know what to do about this anymore. I'm afraid that if I'm not careful... that I'll hurt him. And that's something that I never want do to him. He doesn't deserve that. I couldn't live with myself if I were to hurt him. Now do you understand?", Selina explained, taking her time to get it all out without revealing anything that'd unveil who she truly is beneath her holographic disguise.

She didn't know why she was confiding herself to this girl, but for some reason, whether it was because her mind was too troubled to care or that she felt the need to reach out to another being, she had to speak her peace. It felt weird, almost foreign to her. Besides her mother & father, and of course Ron, she never sought to confide herself with any other human being. Trust was something sacred to her, something that couldn't be given. It had to be earned, and for whatever reason, whether it was instinct or insanity, she felt like she could trust the young woman before her.

"So you do like Ron, don't you?", Tara asked in final inquiry.

"Yeah, I guess.", Selina replied in a low tone of voice.

"Then it's up to you to tell him how you feel.", Tara reasoned, trying to assist Selina by giving her the confidence she needed.

"I'm not sure I can.", Selina said, retaining the uncertainty that she felt whenever she considered her growing bond with Ron Stoppable.

"Yes, you can. Don't worry, Selina. You'll do great. Besides, I have a feeling that Ron really likes you, too.", Tara stated, wanting nothing more than to see Ron & Selina together, even if it meant that she would most likely never get to be with the blond hero that she admired and desired for the longest time.

It all came down to the bond of trust and acceptance that Selina/Shego and Ron had formed with one another. Could she trust Ron with her heart? Yes... she could. Would he accept her if he knew of her true identity? Despite her uncertainty, her heart told her that he would.

Could she summon the courage to confront him? That definitely would prove to be difficult, especially for her. But she would do it. She wouldn't let her fear or her past dictate her actions and the choices she would make. She was bound only by the bonds that she herself has chosen, and Selina now realized that she was bound to him.

"Ah, hell. I guess that I might as well give it a shot, huh?", Selina said as she released a heavy sigh.

"That's the spirit! Oh, by the way, I'm Tara King. Sorry that I didn't introduce myself first. It must have slipped my mind.", Tara responds, giving the brunette emotional support and introducing herself all in one shot.

"Selina Goldberg.", Selina said in reply, properly introducing herself in the process.

"Nice to be formally introduced to you, Selina.", Tara said with a girlish giggle befitting the blonde, extending her hand out to the disguised villainess.

"Likewise, blondie.", Selina chuckled, reaching out to firmly grasp Tara's hand and give it a quick shake before releasing it from her grip.

"Well, I have to get going. Don't want to keep my friends waiting. And, Selina, remember what I said. You can do it. I have confidence in you.", Tara stated with a smile, waving good-bye before turning and walking away.

"Thanks.", Selina said, watching as Tara soon disappeared from her sight.

Turning back toward the doors, Selina knew that within the mall he was awaiting her arrival. She realized that it was now or never; thus she made her decision. She would let her vulnerability be seen and show weakness. Just this once... for him. And with that in mind she proceeded onward, determined to find Ron Stoppable and resolve this entire situation between them.

Unknown to Shego, her time with him did not go unnoticed by a certain feminine daredevil, who was now following the disguised villainess from the shadows. It would soon be time for her to strike! Then, once Shego was out of the way, she would claim Ron Stoppable for her own twisted, freaky desires.
The Affections of a Villainess- Chapter 4

It's quite obvious that Shego/Selina really, really likes Ron. But she's conflicted. She's afraid of getting hurt by becoming closer to him due to her past experiences (which will be revealed in time), and at the same time she's afraid of hurting him. Ron, on the other hand, has fallen hard for Selina/Shego, but is worried that she doesn't feel the same. He's definitely in for some major surprises, including when its revealed to him that Selina Goldberg & Shego are the same person!

All this and the return of Adrena Lynn in the next chapter! And remember the main antagonist I mentioned in my last AN? We'll finally be getting to that as well! All I can say is that this individual has been connected with Shego from the very beginning, before the formation of Team Go and before the comet that changed her life. But I can reveal that this individual did cause the formation of Team Go.

The Affections of a Villainess


Chapter Three: Friendship... and Possibly Something More


Middleton Mall

Ron Stoppable had, like most days, returned to the very location that provided him with plenty of surprises and entertainment. The last few days especially have been very amusing, if not a bit bewildering, in retrospect. He was nearly seduced by Adrena Lynn, rescued and kissed by Shego, and then met someone who could easily pass for the pale green beauty's twin sister in the form of Selina Goldberg all in less than three days time. Speaking of his new feminine acquaintance, he couldn't help but wonder if he would meet her again.

It would be awesome to run in to her again, his mind recalling her lovely appearance. Between Shego and Selina, he wasn't sure who occupied more of his thoughts as of recently. They were both beautiful, smart women in their own right. It would be extremely difficult for him to decide which one would be his choice to take out on a date. A blush colored Ron's cheeks at that thought before he managed to shake it off as his mind began to contemplate on that particular thought.

Would he have to make that choice between Selina and Shego? It could be said that Selina was currently only a friend to him, while Shego's interest in him was still unknown, but what if... they would be interested in him in a romantic sense? Who would he choose? Selina, the snarky young woman with a cool attitude and alluring appearance, or Shego, the stunningly beautiful and deadly femme fatale with an equally cool personality? He couldn't be sure which one of them he'd pursue if given the chance!

Ron knew that he may be getting ahead of himself on the subject, yet it never hurt to speculate and consider these questions. After all, if girls as hot as Amelia were interested in him, who is to say women like Selina or Shego wouldn't be genuinely interested? He may not know it, but there are actually many, many women who would fight to have someone like him by their side. He's loveable, honest, loyal, courageous and just plain fun to be around. What young woman wouldn't want a guy like Ron Stoppable?

He couldn't help but smile at the thought of dating either Selina or Shego. He was pretty sure Kim would accept Selina as his girlfriend, but Shego, on the other hand, he wasn't so certain of given their history. He could only imagine how Kim would react if he was in a relationship with Shego. She'd most likely fight the villainess, assume that she brainwashed him... or her mind would go into overload and cause her pass out once she discovers that they were actually dating. One of the those options, if not all three, were most likely to happen in a situation like that.

Then just as Ron entered Club Banana, he notices a familiar looking individual going through and picking out some very fashionable clothing. Black jeans, white tank top t-shirt, green vest, long chocolate-brown hair. It was all the confirmation that Ron needed as he made his approach, for who else could it be other than Selina? Upon resting his hand upon her shoulder, Ron's assumptions were proven correct as the lovely brunette turned to face him, her arctic-blue eyes meeting his own chocolate-brown orbs.

"Hey, slick, what's up?", Selina greeted, an amused smirk gracing her lovely features.

"Hi, Selina. Just thought I'd say 'hi'. So... you buying some new clothes?", Ron responds, eyeing the clothing she had draped over her arm.

"Still searching for your pale green girlfriend?", Selina retorts in her usual snarky tone of voice, getting a kick out of Stoppable's flustered expression.

"Heh heh. Good one. Actually, I come here every day just for something to do. Plenty of things in this place to keep me and Rufus entertained.", Ron informed.

"Really? And here I thought you came back to ask me out.", Selina remarked with a sly grin.

"Well... I... Uh... Um...", Ron stuttered as she nervously rubbed the back of his neck with his right hand, feeling an intense heat surge up into his cheeks.

"Easy, Ronnie, I'm just messing with ya.", Selina chuckled, reaching out and giving him a slight push with enough force to stagger him slightly.

"Okay... so, what are you going to do after you get your clothes?", Ron asked, smiling at the beautiful young woman.

"Why do you ask?", Selina inquires, arching an eyebrow as she stared at the blond-haired hero.

"Uh, no reason. I just thought that, you know, maybe you'd like to hang out.", Ron replied, shuffling his feet a bit in nervous fashion.

"Sure. Why not.", Selina said, shrugging her shoulders.

"Really?", Ron asked, surprised that she would willingly agree with him.

"Yeah, I'm game.", Selina stated with a smirk.

"Yes! Booyah! Score one for the Ron-man!", Ron cheered, pumping his fist in victory.

"Don't get too cocky, sport. It doesn't impress most women, especially not me.", Selina pointed out, crossing her arms over her ample chest.

"Heh. Sorry. Force of habit. Couldn't resist.", Ron muttered, somewhat embarrassed by his actions.

Selina can only shake her head slightly from side to side, a genuine smile on her delicate features as her gaze remained focused on Ron Stoppable. Never would she had guessed that Ron, his personality, and his actions would have this kind of effect on her. After enduring so much in her life, from all the tragic events that made her into the person she is, to her family and their eventual schism, to dealing the sheer annoyance of her former employer Dr. Drakken, who would have thought that it'd be her arch-nemesis' sidekick who could make her feel this way. If only he knew her true identity, if only he knew whom he was willingly hanging out with at this point in time.

"Don't worry about it! Now, c'mon! We've got places to go!", Selina said, walking past him and up to the register counter to pay for her items.

She goes up to the check-out counter, hands her items over to the register operator, who happened to be none other than Ron Stoppable and Kim Possible's friend Monique. Getting out her wallet, Selina hands over the money to Monique to pay for the clothes before placing it back in her pants pocket. Monique then places the purchased clothing in a gift bag and gives them to Selina, who then turns to look back at Ron Stoppable, something that Monique immediately took notice of.

"Are you coming, Ron?", Selina called back, immediately getting the attention of both the blond-haired hero and the lovely dark-skinned beauty managing the cash register who was watching the entire scene unfold.

"Ron? As in, Ron Stoppable?", Monique questioned, an intrigued smirk and a curious eyebrow being arched.

"Yeah, he's with me.", Selina replied nonchalantly.

"Hey, Monique.", Ron greeted sheepishly as he approached the counter, coming to a stop directly beside Selina.

"Hi, Ron. Who's this?", Monique responds before gesturing towards the azure-eyed, chocolate-brown brunette.

"This is Selina. She's a friend.", Ron introduced somewhat awkwardly.

"Your girlfriend?", Monique suggested.

"What?! Uh, no... she's just a friend. Honest.", Ron quickly replied.

"T.I.D. much, Ron?", Monique giggled, much to Ron's chagrin.

"T.I.D.?", Ron and Selina said in unison, confusion evident on each of their faces.

"Totally in denial.", Monique explained.

"No, I'm not. I swear, she's just a friend.", Ron argued, waving his hands frantically.

"But you're with her.", Monique stated.

"Yeah.", Ron agreed, though somewhat reluctantly.

"Then that means you're hanging out.", Monique stated, pointing it out to her male friend.

"I guess. So what?", Ron said in reply.

"Name one girl, besides me or Kim, that you regularly hang out with.", Monique challenged, crossing her arms over her chest, her expression daring Ron to come up with an explanation.

"Uh...", Ron drawled out, stumped for the time being.

"Uh-huh. That's what I thought, baby boy. She's your girlfriend. You might as well just admit it.", Monique remarked, almost daring him to respond.

"No, she's not!", Ron protested, a brief glare sent at the fashion-sensible young woman.

"What's matter, Ron? Don't you think she's attractive?", Monique inquired, looking from Ron to Selina.

"Yeah, I'm kinda curious myself, Ronnie.", Selina added, a mischievous, sultry smirk gracing her features as she locked eyes with him.

"I... Uh... Well...", Ron stammered, trying with all of his might to look anywhere but at Selina.

"What's wrong? Don't you like me, Ronnie?", Selina asked with a pout that could easily challenge or even best one of Kim's own puppy dog pouts.

"Of course, I like you, Selina. Why wouldn't I? You're drop dead gorgeous! And... I'm going to shut up now.", Ron blurted out before realizing what he just admitted, much to sheer amusement of both Selina and Monique.

"If you keep giving out compliments like that and play your cards right, Ronnie, I might give you something that you'll never forget.", Selina stated with a wink, a seductive smile forming on her face.

Despite herself, Selina was impressed that Ron would willingly admit his attraction of her. Sure, he did confess his attraction and thoughts regarding Shego, unbeknownst to him that she is the villainess in holographic disguise, but to hear him directly admit something like this to her while she was present and listening was entirely different on a number of levels. To a certain degree, she was impressed as well as flattered by the words that he had spoken. And it was fun to see him in such a predicament, if only for her own personal amusement. She would never admit it, but he did look cute when he was all flustered and nervous. If only it could last.

"Can we please go now?", Ron asks meekly, fidgeting with his fingers.

"If you insist, Ron.", Selina replied as she walked away from the check-out counter, making sure to put a little extra sway in her hips.

"Git-r-done, ladies man.", Monique teased, releasing a couple of girlish chuckles much to Ron's utter discomfort.

"Not cool, Moni. Not cool.", Ron groaned, sending one last glare at Monique before following Selina out of Club Banana.

Monique couldn't help but watch as Ron left with Selina, a feeling of pride and joy coursing through her in knowing that one of her closest friends has finally found someone. And if anyone deserved love, love with someone that wasn't platonic in nature, it was Ron Stoppable. And from what she could tell, Selina just might be the perfect choice for him. True, she didn't know much about her, but Monique had a feeling that there was chemistry there between the arctic-blue-eyed-brunette and the fun-loving, blond-haired hero of Team Possible.

"Wait until I tell Kim about this. She's been so determined to see that Ron gets himself a girlfriend. I wonder if she'll believe me when I call her? She probably thinks it'd be Tara that he's going out with. She's gonna be in for a big surprise!", Monique mused to herself, making sure to remember to give Kim a call after she was done working for the day.


Middleton Mall

The Food Court

Selina sat in her seat at one of the circular tables, watching on as Ron and Rufus devoured several trays of nachos and a whole large pizza in a matter of mere minutes. Never in her life had she seen anyone devour so much food at an incredible rate. She didn't know whether if she should be impressed, disgusted, or maybe a little bit of both. She wondered if he had a high metabolism, which would explain why he could eat so much food and keep himself lean and physically fit. He may not be the most muscular man on the planet, but Ron definitely had a very solid physique, something that she began to notice more and more over time.

"Are you sure you didn't want anything?", Ron offered, taking a long slurp of his soda.

"No, I'm good. Have to keep myself in shape. A girl's got to look her best, you know.", Selina assured in response to his offer.

"I don't think you'll have to worry about that. I mean, you look pretty great to me.", Ron remarked before taking another sip of his beverage.

"Flirting with me again, eh, Ronnie?", Selina teased, her remark nearly causing Ron to nearly choke on his soda.

"Wha? Uh, I, no! Just stating the obvious, that's all. So... anyways, Selina, I was wondering if can I ask you a couple of things?", Ron replied, quickly changing the topic of the conversation.

"What kind of things?", Selina inquired, her expression and tone of voice becoming serious.

"Well... do you have any brothers or sisters? What're your parents like? Stuff like that.", Ron answered, making sure to explain what kind of 'things' he meant.

"I don't want to talk about those things. At least not anything regarding my brothers... or my parents.", Selina stated, a certain edge evident in her voice.

"Oh, okay.", Ron muttered, briefly averting his eyes elsewhere before refocusing on the beautiful young woman.

A tense silence followed, neither speaking a word. It was then that Ron took notice of Selina's angry yet sorrowful scowl, her arctic-blue irises seemingly staring at nothing as she became lost in her own thoughts. He wasn't sure what events she endured that involved her family, only that it must have been something truly devastating to make her react like this. He didn't like seeing her like this, so angry and sad. It was his own fault for asking her something so personal, therefore it was only right for him to apologize to her. He wanted to show her that he cared, that he could be trusted, that he would always be there for her.

"Look, Selina, I'm sorry if I said something that upset you. I didn't mean it. I just want to get to know you better. But only if you give me that chance, and only if it's on your own terms. But I just want you to know that I would never do anything to hurt you. Ever.", Ron said, his words sincere and his tone gentle.

As soon as he began speaking, Selina's focus was solely on Ron Stoppable. He was genuinely concerned for her, displaying both sympathy and perhaps a sense of empathy in her ordeal. She wasn't one for being sappy, but she did think it was kind of sweet... if only a little. Leave it to him to truly surprise her. She might as well assure him that it wasn't any of his fault, if only to rid herself of the fragment of guilt she was feeling at the moment.

"It's not you. It's just that... there's some things that I can't talk about. Not yet, at least.", Selina responds, her mind recalling the fate of her father and the rage & darkness that consumed her mother.

"I understand. No pressure. We'll talk about it when you're ready.", Ron said in understanding, reaching over to gently grasp her hands within his own, much to the shock of the beautiful young woman.

"Thanks, Ron.", Selina said, appreciating his sentimental acceptance and understanding.

"No problem. That's what friends are for, right?", Ron chuckles, relaxing into his seat while unknowingly keeping his hands intertwined with hers.

"I guess you got a point, slick.", Selina remarks.

"So, anyways, is there anything you want to ask me?", Ron offered willingly.

"Being a bit bold, aren't we? I mean, offering to tell someone about yourself without really knowing them? Why are you doing this?", Selina inquired, honestly perplexed by his foreword nature.

"Because I trust you. I wouldn't offer if I didn't think I could trust you, Selina.", Ron answered, not a single trace of deceit anywhere to be found in his voice.

"I... I don't know what to say.", Selina choked out, completely at a loss for words.

"You don't have to... because it isn't necessary.", Ron reasoned, his usual warm, affectionate smile appearing once again.

"Heh. You're really something, Ron.", Selina chuckled, a full-fledged smile forming on her lovely features.

"Don't worry. You'll get used to it once you're around me long enough.", Ron informed, causing them both to laugh.

When their laughter ceased Ron and Selina discovered that their faces were separated by mere inches while their eyes, his chocolate-brown orbs and her arctic-blue irises, gazing deeply into each others windows that led to the depths of their very souls. Seemingly by their own volition, Ron and Selina leaned in closer, the diminutive gap of space between them narrowing with each passing second. Then, just when it would see that their lips would meet, a sudden call from a familiar person from Ron's high school caused the two to separate.

"Hey, Ron!", Marcella greeted, marching up to the table.

Ron instantly recognized the Latin-American beauty of the Middleton Cheer Squad, not that it was difficult to remember someone like her. Her fair light-brown skin, long pitch-black hair, dazzling dark-brown eyes, and luscious figure were something that no heterosexual male high school student would want to forget. But what did she want from Ron? It wasn't every day that she would speak to him, let alone confront him.

"Hi, Marcella. What's up?", Ron replies in greeting, reluctantly releasing Selina's hands from his grasp.

"Nothing much. Who's this?", Marcella replied before gesturing towards the woman seated beside him.

"Oh! Marcella, this is Selina. She's a friend.", Ron introduced, not noticing the two women slightly glaring at one another.

"I see. Nice to meet you, Selina.", Marcella said in a nonchalant manner, a hint of disdain seeping into her tone.

"Oh, no. The pleasure's all mine.", Selina responded, venomous sarcasm clearly visible in her words.

It was quite apparent that Selina and Marcella didn't like each other. Each viewed the other as competition for Ron's attention, something that each of them wanted. Marcella, having recently broken up with her last boyfriend, considered asking Ron Stoppable out after a couple of conversations with Tara. Unfortunately, it would seem that another female had beaten her to the punch, a disguised villainess who was fighting her urge to ignite her fists in fiery emerald plasma and turn Marcella into a pile of ash. Oh, yeah. Shego, aka Selina, was as jealous as she was protective when it came to other women around Ron Stoppable... even if she wouldn't admit it.

"Right. So, anyway, Ron, I was wondering if you are doing anything this evening? If not, would you like to go out and catch a movie with me?", Marcella asks, ignoring Selina completely as she refocused on Ron.

"You mean, like, a date?", Ron stammered, feeling a slight heat burn in his freckled cheeks.

"Yeah. Like a date. So... what do you say?", Marcella questions, awaiting the blond-haired hero's response.

"Well, I...", Ron muttered only for a certain jealous mercenary-in-disguise to answer for him.

"Sorry, but Ron is spending today with me.", Selina interjected, looping her arm around his and pulling him closer in a possessive manner.

"Is that true, Ron?", Marcella replied in inquiry.

"Yeah, I kinda promised to spend the day with Selina. Heh, sorry.", Ron confessed somewhat nervously as he scratched the back of his neck.

"It's all right. Here's my phone number. When you're not busy, give me a call.", Marcella said, handing him a piece of paper with her phone number written on it.

"Sure! I'll be in contact, Marcella.", Ron proclaims, smiling at the lovely cheerleader until he felt Selina give him a sharp elbow jab to his ribs which causes him to flinch slightly in pain.

"I'll see you then, Ron.", Marcella giggled, smiling sweetly at Ron one last time before turning and walking away.

"Floozy.", Selina huffed, glaring daggers at the retreating Latin-American cheerleader.

"Aw, c'mon, she isn't that bad.", Ron chuckled as he rubbed the spot that her elbow connected, taking notice of Selina's immediate dislike of Marcella.

"Maybe not from your point of view.", Selina scoffed, crossing her arms over her ample chest.

"Aren't you being a little harsh? I mean, she's one of the best cheerleaders, she's popular, she's nice and she's one of the top students at Middleton High. Not to mention that she's very attractive.", Ron said, attempting to reason with his newest feminine friend.

"HA! Please! Girls like her are worth a dime a dozen. Trust me on that one, Ron.", Selina exclaims, knowing all too well from past experiences with women of Marcella's type.

"If you say so.", Ron said, casually shrugging his shoulders before rising out of his seat.

If he didn't know any better, Ron would think that Selina was jealous. But that couldn't be it. They were just friends, right? Then his mind recalled that they were about to kiss before Marcella appeared. He would have to put some more serious thought to that matter later, maybe after he spent more time with the lovely brunette. Right now, however, all he wanted to do was to have some fun and spend time with Selina.

Once he was certain that Rufus had returned to his pants pocket, Ron extends his right hand out to Selina. She seemed reluctant at first, but after a few seconds of hesitation she grasps his hand and lets him help her up to her feet. And there they stood, gazing at each other for a few moments, unaware of what was happening around them. It was only when they noticed that they were still holding hands did Ron and Selina come back to reality, causing them to release their grip and avert their attention elsewhere even as a few couples walked past them, whispering and giggling like enchanted forest imps.

"So, um... do you wanna go play some games at the arcade?", Ron suggested, a crimson blush still coloring his cheeks.

"Sure. I'm game. Let's play.", Selina accepted, a wry grin making its way on her face.

"All right! This is going to be so badical!", Ron cheered, excited at the prospect of engaging in activities with newest comrade.

Somewhere within her psyche, Shego knew she shouldn't be doing this. She shouldn't be allowing herself to become this close to him, that she shouldn't become involved in Ron's life. If it would have been anyone or anything else, she wouldn't have started anything like this. It wouldn't have been allowed to transcend. But this was somehow different, he was different.

She enjoyed spending time with Ron Stoppable, even if it was undercover. She didn't want to care about him, she didn't want to feel anything towards him. But no matter how much Shego didn't want to, no matter how much she tried to deny it... she did. It made her wonder: if he accepted her now without judgment, could he accept her if she were to reveal herself?

The Affections of a Villainess


Chapter Two: Secret Espionage


Middleton Mall

The Food Court

Sitting alone at one of the tables, watching Rufus devour his tray of nachos, Ron Stoppable seemed to be lost in his own thoughts regarding a certain beautiful villainess. Since then, all he could seem to think of was Shego and what transpired at Club Banana and the Stoppable household. Why did she save him from Adrena Lynn? Why did she even care or want to help him? And the most intriguing question of all: Why did she kiss him?

It wasn't like Ron could complain about getting a kiss from her. After all, Shego is, without a single shred of doubt, drop-dead gorgeous in every single aspect. She could have any man or woman on the planet if she desired. She couldn't be interested in him. But what if she was? Then he began to recall the kiss they shared, the sensations and feelings that coursed through them both as their lips met in a passionate embrace.

The kiss itself was truly unreal, unlike anything Ron had ever experienced. However, aside the fact that he was sharing it with Shego, whom he considered one of the most beautiful women on the entire planet, there was something else that he sensed when they kissed. There was a connection, a spark that could rival the brightest of stars that existed throughout the universe, that he felt when his lips met the black lipstick glossed lips of the emerald-skinned villainess. Could it be that he was interested in Shego? Could it be possible that she also harbored similar feelings towards him?

"Hnk! Something wrong?", Rufus squeaked in question, disturbing Ron from his thoughts and causing him to look down at his close friend and companion.

"Nah, little buddy, just thinking.", Ron answered with a sigh, a relaxed smile appearing on his face.

"Shego?", Rufus inquired with a squeak.

"Yeah. I can't seem to get her out of my mind. Ever since last night... when she kissed me, I've been wondering about a lot of things. I don't know, it's just that I never saw it coming. I mean, she seemed like her normal self, even when she dragged me all the way home she let out her usual snarky remarks. What do you think, Rufus?", Ron replied, only to receive a most amusing display from the rodent.

"Ron and Shego sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G! Heh Ha Ha Ha!", Rufus sing-songed, dancing on the top of the table before breaking down in a fit of laughter.

"Very funny. C'mon, let's go cruise the shops.", Ron chuckled, an amused smirk forming on his lips.

"Hnk! Okay!", Rufus replied, leaping from the top of the table to the inside of Ron's right pants pocket.

When Ron rises out of his seat prepares to walk away from the Food Court he immediately slams into another individual, the unexpected collision knocking them both to the marble floor. The person he had run into was a young woman wearing a pink t-shirt and a matching pair of shorts and a pair of brown sandals that adorned her feet, her long brown hair hiding her face from Ron's view for the moment. That didn't matter to Ron, who was beginning to panic a little bit after such an incident. Why did things like this always have to happen to him?

"Oh, I'm so sorry! I didn't mean it! Honest! I wasn't paying attention and... well, I knocked you down. But I'm sorry! Please don't slap me!", Ron rambled on in apology, immediately kneeling down and helping the person back up to their feet.

"Ron Stoppable?", Amelia asks, her eyes focusing on the blond-haired boy she knew from Middleton High.

"Amelia?", Ron gasped, instantly recognizing the tall, beautiful brunette.

"Yeah. You sound surprised.", Amelia giggled.

"Well... it's just that I haven't seen you in a long time. Didn't you graduate and go off to college?", Ron inquired, shuffling his feet in his usual nervous fashion.

"Yes, I did. Now I'm back.", Amelia informed with a smile.

"Cool. So... what're you going to do now?", Ron asked in reply.

"Probably spend my summer having fun with friends, spending time with my family, all of that stuff. Then I'll just go on from there.", Amelia stated as her eyes traveled up and down Ron's body, noticing his lean and natural muscle-toned physique.

"Sounds pretty badical.", Ron remarked, smiling at the lovely college student.

"Yeah, but it'd be even better if I had someone to share it with. I haven't been in a relationship since my last boyfriend. We split up about six months ago.", Amelia said, a slight pout forming on her lips.

"I'm sorry.", Ron apologized meekly.

"Oh, well. It's his loss. So, what about you? Dating anyone?", Amelia questions, crossing her arms over her ample chest.

"Me? Uh... I, no. I'm not currently with anyone at the moment.", Ron admitted, sheepishly rubbing the back of his neck with his right hand.

"What about Kim Possible?", Amelia suggested, briefly arching an eyebrow at the blond.

"Nope. Not my girlfriend. Our relationship is purely platonic in every single way. I mean, other than being my best friend, she's more like a sister to me than anything else.", Ron calmly explained.

"Then you're single?", Amelia asks in inquiry.

"Yep. The Ron-man is a free agent.", Ron proclaimed proudly.

"In that case, would you mind if we'd hang out sometime?", Amelia offered with a sly smirk.

"Hang out? What do you mean?", Ron asks nervously, taking a step back from Amelia only to have the beautiful brunette to take a step closer.

"I mean that we could go out together. Have some fun.", Amelia responds, getting closer to Ron until not even a foot of space remained between them.

"L-Like a date?", Ron stuttered.

"Yes, I suppose we can call it a date.", Amelia giggled, taking her arms and looping them around Ron's neck.

"Are you sure you want to go out with me?", Ron asks in reply, her voice trembling as he felt blood rush into his cheeks.

"Why not? We're both single. And weren't we animology soul mates in high school?", Amelia retorts, bring her hand up to gently caress his cheek which sent a shiver down Ron's spine.

"Well, yeah, that's true.", Ron agreed, feeling his heartbeat increasing within his chest.

"So what is it? I'm not attractive enough for you?", Amelia pouted, the expression on her face reminding Ron of a pleading Kim whenever she uses the P.D.P. on him.

"No, no, no! That's not it at all. You're very beautiful. It's just that I never expected someone like you to be interested in a guy like me. That's all.", Ron quickly answered, not wanting to upset her.

"Then it's settled.", Ameila said, pulling out of pen and a piece of paper from her shorts pocket and proceeding to write something down on it.

"Here's my phone number. Give me a call when you want to go out, okay, Ron-stud.", Amelia said as she handed him the piece of paper before proceeding to lean in close to kiss Ron on the cheek.

"Sure. You got it.", Ron muttered, his face nearly crimson with a blush.

"See you then, Ron-stud.", Amelia whispered seductively in his ear.

He watched as Amelia walked away, his chocolate-brown eyes focused on the tall, beautiful brunette's bodacious body as her hips swayed alluring. Ron could only stand there, allowing a huge grin to form as he became briefly lost in thought. He was nearly seduced by Adrena Lynn, kissed by Shego, and now he's got the phone number of the college hottie Amelia right in his hands. There was only a single word that entered his mind, one that was of excitement and joy and triumph all rolled into one.

"Booyah.", Ron uttered to himself, glancing down at the piece of paper that Amelia's phone number was written on.


Amelia continued walking through the mall, a smile of triumph on her lovely features. She couldn't believe how fortunate she was to have encountered Ron Stoppable. She wasn't sure that he would've remembered her after all this time, nor did she think he'd still be single. But now that she knew he was, there was nothing stopping her from pursuing him. If it had not been for the popular crowd and the food chain in high school, she would have taken Ron to be hers then, which is something that she regretted after enduring several bad college break-ups.

She would give Ron Stoppable a chance, if only to see if her intuition in regards to him being a near-perfect boyfriend was correct. If not, then she could always break it off with him and move on with her life. However, unknown to Amelia, someone who watched the entire scene between her and Ron Stoppable was currently following her. And that person was none other than the villainess Shego, dressed in a pair of green, knee-length shorts and a black short sleeve t-shirt.

Ever since the conversation with Adrena Lynn, Shego had been watching over Ron like a guardian angel. She didn't even know why she cared... and she didn't really seem to know for what reason or how to understand this protective urge she was having towards him. It wasn't like she cared or even liked Ron Stoppable... or at least she kept telling herself that over and over again in her mind. Then Shego decided that, after much internal and psychological debating, she was just merely ensuring that he wasn't going to be forced to endure the pain, betrayal and heartache that she suffered through in her own life. It seemed like a logical excuse for her secret espionage... for now.

She followed him, but always at a distance so as not to get caught by him or garner any other unwanted attention. She watched him enter a couple of shops, exploring them before going to the Food Court. It was there that he ran into someone, her superhuman hearing listening in on their conversation. It was then she focused her attention on Amelia, the one who was talking and flirting with him in a way that enraged her, causing a surge of emotion within her that she's never felt before: jealousy.

She reminded Shego of one of the top cheerleaders during her years in Go City High School, one who was friends with that wretched red-haired witch of a head cheerleader named Victoria Miles. Oh, how she despised them, all of them, for mocking and tormenting her. They were jealous of her, of her superior intellect and athletic skill that greatly surpassed any of their own, even without the aid of her cosmic powers. But out of them all, other than Victoria, the one she hated with such unrivalled passion was a brunette named Carly.

She was very beautiful and popular, not unlike Amelia in some ways. She was also known for being manipulative and nasty, especially to the guys she seduced and dumped along with those who were defiant against her and Victoria. When Shego looked at Amelia, her dark emerald irises seen someone who could potentially seduce, manipulate, and hurt Ron Stoppable. That was something she wasn't going to allow, not if she could prevent it.

Shego watched as Amelia kissed Ron on the cheek, causing her to become more infuriated for reasons she didn't quite understand. Once Amelia began walking away, Shego decided to follow and confront her. She would wait until they were a good distance away from Stoppable, somewhere he couldn't see them. The last thing Shego wanted was to be discovered, especially by him. How could she face him if he were to find her here? How could she ever explain to him, let alone make him understand her reasons for protecting him? It was something she couldn't allow, something he must never know.

Now, after pursuing her target across the man-made landscape, she had her chance to confront Amelia. Marching towards the beautiful brunette, Shego reaches out and roughly grabs Amelia by the arm, spinning her around to face her. She was going to get some answers, by reason or force, whether Amelia liked it or not. She didn't care about Amelia, her only concern being that of Ron Stoppable. Why? She did not know, but his safety was all that mattered to her.

"Who are you?", Amelia asked, annoyance and surprise evident in her voice.

"Are you the girl that was talking to Ron Stoppable?", Shego inquired sternly, locking eyes with her target.

"Yes, I am. Not that it's any of your business, jade jaws!", Amelia sneered mockingly.

"Oh, that's where you're wrong, cupcake, 'cause it is my business! And since we're on the subject, what are your intentions involving Stoppable?", Shego demanded, trying her best not to lose her temper.

"What's the matter, green freak? Afraid of a little competition?", Amelia shot back, causing the pale green beauty to tightly clench her hands into fists.

"Last chance, you shallow hussy. What are your intentions?", Shego almost growled, resisting the urge to blast the brunette across the mall.

"Pfft! Like I'm going to tell you anything.", Amelia replied, staring defiantly at the dangerous female mercenary.

"Fine. Then I'm only gonna tell you this once. If you plan on hurting him, in any way, then I suggest that you walk away now and leave him alone.", Shego said in warning, her dark emerald eyes narrowing as she focused solely on Amelia.

"And if I don't?", Amelia inquired, getting directly in Shego's face.

Wrong answer, big mistake. No sooner had the words left her mouth did Amelia find herself being grabbed by Shego and launched effortlessly through the air. With a loud scream of shock, Amelia lands in the mall's display fountain, her impact sending water splashing high into the air. Soaked to the bone, clothing and all, Amelia manages to crawl to the edge of the circular pond of the giant fountain where she comes to look upon the pale green beauty who tossed her in the cool waters.

"Does that answer your question, hot lips?", Shego smirked before quickly running away, hoping to avoid any attention that her actions may have garnered.

And it did indeed attract a lot of attention. People who caught glimpses of what transpired looked on as numerous other appeared, including the member of Team Possible itself, Ron Stoppable. He didn't see what happened, but he certainly heard Amelia's scream. When he came upon the scene, Amelia was completely drenched as she lay in the waters of the fountain. He immediately went over to the fountain, wondering what had sent Amelia in it in the first place. He would soon find out.

"Amelia, what happened?", Ron asks, helping the beautiful brunette out of the fountain only for her to roughly push him away.

"Ron Stoppable, you liar! Why didn't you tell me you had a girlfriend?!", Amelia exclaimed, her narrowed eyes glaring at the blond-haired hero.

"Girlfriend?! What are you talking about?", Ron almost shouted, surprised by her accusation.

"Some freaky woman with dark hair and green skin attacked me! She asked if I was interested in you, told me to back off, and then tossed me into the fountain!", Amelia exclaimed, giving Ron her version of the story.

"Green skin...", Ron whispered to himself, his head glancing around the area.

It couldn't be her, could it? But what it was her, what if it is her? In an instant, Ron Stoppable takes off running, his chocolate-brown eyes searching for the one female who he knew that had green flesh. She couldn't have gotten far, not within just a short amount of time. And he realized that even if she barreled through all of these people, it wouldn't go unnoticed. If Shego was indeed here within Middleton Mall, he would find her.


She could be anywhere. That much Ron realized, but it did not deter him in his search. He was determined to find Shego, if she was still within this area of the mall. He moved at a quick pace, passing families and teenagers who were partaking in various activities, his eyes darting everywhere in hopes of finding some sign that she was here.

Then, just as his chocolate-brown irises scanned the surroundings as he came to an immediate stop in the middle of the mall, he noticed a very familiar looking figure, a young woman wearing a green shorts and a black short sleeve t-shirt, standing within Cosmic Comics. It couldn't be her... but he had to be sure. Slowly advancing towards the young woman, Ron reaches out to touch her shoulder, getting her immediate attention as she spins around to face him. He's quite surprised by his discovery, even if it isn't the woman he intended to find.

"Can I help you?", Selina asked, looking directly at the individual who disturbed her from her comic reading.

He couldn't believe it, but it was true that this lady wasn't the villainess he was searching for. She looked almost exactly like Shego. Nearly everything about her, from her strong, sexy, extremely appealing lithe body to her snarky tone of voice was exactly like that of the pale green-skinned beauty. However, Ron couldn't help but notice the differences between this young woman and the deadly female mercenary he knew. Her hair, while just as long and lengthy as Shego's, was not of a raven-black but of a very dark chocolate-brown; her eye color, unlike that of Shego's dark emerald-green hued irises, were of a stunning arctic-azure blue; he also noticed that she was wearing what looked like a cool, high-tech watch on her wrist, something he never seen Shego wear before; and most noticeable of all, the color of her flesh was a fair Caucasian white instead of a pale green.

Still, even if she wasn't Shego, she was still gorgeous, capable of giving the villainess competition in terms of beauty. She possessed all the luscious curves, flawless skin, long legs and ample bust of the deadly feminine mercenary that he was currently seeking. However, right now, his eyes were busy travelling up and down the young woman's body, taking in every detail of her lovely physique. It would not last, for his attention did not go unnoticed by her.

"Yo! Eyes up here, slick!", Selina said, a serious edge clear in her tone of voice as she got Ron's attention.

"Heh. Sorry, I thought you were someone else. I was looking for this girl, but I can't seem to find her. Did you see her run by here?", Ron replied before asking the young woman.

"Maybe. What does she look like?", Selina shrugged, placing the comic back on the shelf as she focused her attention to the member of Team Possible.

"Um... okay. She's very beautiful. She has long, raven-black hair and dark emerald-green eyes. She's most likely wearing something that's green & black, like what you're wearing or something similar. She has powers, like, the ability to throw bolts of fiery green plasma. And... what was that last part... Oh! Her skin tone is of a pale green color.", Ron informed, making sure to give a good description.

"She sounds interesting. What is she? Your girlfriend?", Selina inquired with a teasing, mischievous smirk.

"Uh, no... I mean, I'd love it if she was, but I doubt that she'd ever be interested in me.", Ron chuckled nervously, a slight blush coloring his cheeks.

"Why's that?", Selina asks, arching an eyebrow at the heroic blond.

"It's... complicated.", Ron stated, not sure if he should really talk about this particular subject to another equally attractive young woman.

"Oh, really? Enlighten me.", Selina responds evenly.

"Why?", Ron asks in curiosity.

"What can I say? I'm curious. Is that a crime?", Selina countered, examining her nails for a brief second before locking gazes with Ron once again.

"No, not really.", Ron mumbled, shuffling his feet on the white marble flooring within the comic book store.

"Then go ahead and tell me. I'm not going to judge.", Selina insisted, her gaze alone demanding that he explain it to her.

Releasing a heavy sigh, Ron finally conceded defeat. She wanted to know, and he could tell she wasn't going to let him change the subject. It wouldn't hurt to tell her. I mean, it's not like Shego was close by or anything to hear him... or his best friend Kim, which would be just as bad on some levels. With that thought in mind, Ron summoned his courage and began speaking about this particularly personal subject regarding a certain deadly femme fatale.

"It's like this. Ever since I first seen her and met her, I've always been attracted to her than most of the other girls. She's just so stunningly beautiful, but not just in a physical sense. She's powerful and fast, agile and graceful. When she moves, whether when she's fighting or simply walking, I can't help but feel in awe of her beauty. You know what I mean? She's just... wow! It's so hard to describe her because I don't think words can truly do her justice.", Ron said, a dreamy smile making its way onto his face as his thoughts drifted elsewhere.

"Well? Are you going to continue, or are you too busy drooling on yourself?", Selina interrupted, shaking Ron from his thoughts with her snarky, teasing remark.

"Oh, sorry. Got lost in my... personal thoughts there for a second. ", Ron said in reply, a blush coloring his cheeks.

"Anyways, she's very smart. A lot more than what people give her credit for. She could probably accomplish anything if she really wanted, especially if she sets her mind to it. She can be dangerous, but I noticed that when she fights... she's always holding back. If she wanted, I believe she could beat anyone or anything that crosses her path. I don't think she would intentionally kill or harm anyone without reason, though, because I believe she knows that there's a line that shouldn't be crossed... unless there's no other choice.", Ron continued, his words as sincere as they are serious when it came to what he thought about Shego.

"Now, she can be snarky and sarcastic and hot-tempered, but that's just the way she is. But it isn't all her fault. I think she's been through a lot in her life, more than most people. I don't know what exactly, but if I would get the chance... if she would give me that chance... I would take it in a heartbeat. I would want to know more about her, who she is... and be there for her. I doubt that she'll ever give me that chance, or ever let that happen, but I can always hope that one day she will.", Ron said in proclamation, his serious tone of voice letting Selina know that he meant everything that he told her.

There was silence as Selina stood there, her arms crossed over her chest, staring directly at Ron Stoppable, as if she were judging or impressed by what he had said. He wondered what she was thinking about, not only in terms of what he'd told her, but also of what she thought of him. Despite the fact that he didn't even know her, a part of him hoped that she would also give him a chance. He liked her, but not just because she kind of reminded him of Shego. He was attracted to her, both in a physical and personal sense, much like in the way he was with a raven-haired goddess that kissed him.

"So the fact that she has green skin doesn't bother you? Not in the least?", Selina inquires, her question seemingly coming out of nowhere.

"Not at all. Why should it? I mean, it's just skin. Besides, I think it makes her look really exotic, which is cool considering my motto is 'Never Be Normal'. But that's just me.", Ron answered honestly.

"What about her powers? Unleashing balls of fiery energy that can destroy steel and level buildings must be a little bit intimidating, right?", Selina asks in inquiry, wondering how he would respond this time.

"Yeah, a little bit. But it's not that big of a deal. After all, she can fully control her powers. Look at it this way: A person armed with WMDs could be just as, if not more than, dangerous than her. Especially if, unlike her, they're willing to use them without care of what happens to themselves and the people around them.", Ron confessed while pointing out something that few would consider in regards to the villainess.

"You make a good point.", Selina replied, finding herself agreeing with him for the most part.

"Thanks... Uh, you know, I don't even know your name.", Ron chuckled.

"That's because you didn't ask, doofus.", Selina pointed out in her usual snarky demeanor.

"Yeah, I guess it is my fault. So... what is your name?", Ron asked.

"Selina... Goldberg. Selina Goldberg.", Selina informed, her voice becoming somewhat uneasy for a brief second.

"Ron. Ron Stoppable.", Ron introduced himself, doing his best James Bond impersonation.

"Very smooth, hotshot.", Selina remarked, a hint of sarcasm seeping its way out of her voice.

"Expect nothing less than the best, Selina.", Ron responded, bowing slightly much to her own amusement.

"Very charming, Ron. Very charming.", Selina chuckled, amused by his actions.

"So, anyway, did you see her or not, the girl I'm looking for, I mean?", Ron asked, not forgetting whom he was actually searching for.

"No, I haven't. Sorry.", Selina answers, her voice becoming slightly uneasy once again.

"Okay, then... Thanks anyways. So... uh, I guess I'll see you around, Selina. I've got to get home before it gets too late. Don't need Mrs. Dr. P giving me a lecture about calling her if I'm going to be late.", Ron stated, a bit disappointed that he didn't find Shego, yet excited that he met someone who could potentially become a close friend... or maybe something more.

"I'm sure you will, Ron. In fact, you can pretty much bet on it.", Selina stated quite certainly of this fact.

"Cool. Maybe we can hang out sometime. See ya, Selina!", Ron said, bidding farewell to his new female acquaintance as he turned and began walking out of Cosmic Comics.

"See ya!", Selina said, giving a slight wave at the blond-haired hero before he left the area.

Once she was sure that Ron Stoppable was gone, Selina glanced down at the high-tech, watch-like device that was on her wrist. Pressing a button with her index finger, her fair skin becomes pale green in color, her dark chocolate-brown hair turns raven-black, and her arctic-blue irises transform into a shade of dark emerald-green. Her entire disguise disappears in an instant, in a faint flash of light, revealing that Selina Goldberg is really none other than Shego. She had to admit, this was one piece of tech she was glad to have taken from Jack Hench. It definitely had its uses, especially with the current situation involving Ron Stoppable.

"That was interesting. I guess when it comes to Stoppable, there's more to him than meets the eye.", Shego remarked, her mind recalling everything he told her.

He didn't care about her past, her powers, or her unique emerald appearance. There was no deceit, only honesty. There was no judgment, only acceptance. There were no lies, only truths. After today, Shego would find herself thinking more and more about Ron Stoppable, about everything he unknowingly confessed to her. Nothing would ever be the same again... for either of them.

Author's Notes

The events of ones' past can determine the unexpected outcomes for ones' future. Each will be a key factor in this story. Each will be linked to Shego. How she became the person that she is, what caused the formation of Team Go, the events that led to her departure (besides the sibling tension), and what causes her to fall in love and form an unbreakable bond with Ron Stoppable. All of these connections will be made.

These are some of my favorite RonGo stories. Some of them are one-shots, or are finished, or need to be continued, or we're awaiting the anticipated sequel of them. My advice? Start PM'ing these writers and really reviewing these stories, even if you have review every single chapter, because we need writers, old and new, to give us some more awesome RonGo stories whether they be one-shots or multi-chapter works of fiction.

The Affections of a Villainess


Chapter One


Surprises for Stoppable


Middleton, Colorado

The Middleton Mall

Ron Stoppable, hero and member of Team Possible, was wandering the mall in search for some entertainment and activities in order to pass the time of the day. He only wished that his best friend Kim could be here, but she had gone with her father and brothers to visit Uncle Slim Possible. They would be gone for a little over a month; and while Mrs. Dr. Possible stayed behind, she was mostly busy with patients that needed surgery at the hospital to do more than check up on him. And his parents, as usual, were working and would not be returning home until the middle of September. But at least he still had his dear friend Rufus to keep him company, even if he was now currently taking a nap inside his pocket after helping his friend and owner devour several trays of nachos and a pizza at the food court.

It had been a few months since the moodulator incident when she had kissed him. After that, they had a very long conversation with one another in regards to what transpired. And while Kim revealed that, despite the moodulator manipulating her emotions, she did love Ron, it wasn't the kind he initially thought of. Kim loved Ron, but it was more of a platonic love, similar to the way that she loved her family. He was a little disappointed at first, but accepted it and immediately reverted back to his normal care-free self.

In many ways, now that he had the chance to put some more thought into it, Ron was glad that Kim didn't love him in that manner and vice versa. He always did care about Kim, but to be in that kind of relationship with her was just too awkweird, as he would have put it. Besides, such a relationship could have damaged their friendship later down the line, which is something that Ron didn't want to happen. And it wasn't like there was a shortage of women in the world, especially if one were to consider that half of the world's human population is made up of women. He would find the right one, the woman who would be his perfect match, his friend and partner in crime. It would only be a matter of time.

But those thoughts were at the farthest depths of Ron's mind now. He was at the mall, enjoying himself and having some summer fun. He ventured into several stores, exploring each one of them and everything that the shops had to offer. He didn't buy anything, not that he couldn't afford anything with his Naco Royalty checks still being deposited in his personal bank account, but it'd just be too much effort to carry a ton of merchandise home on a hot summer's day like today.

All he really intended to get were a few clothes from Club Banana, pick up his reserved comic books from Cosmic Comics, and then go home before it got too late. The last thing he needed was for Mrs. Dr. Possible to worry about him. It was good to know that there were people in his life that truly cared about him, even if they couldn't be around him all the time. He couldn't help but smile at the thought of his family and friends. His life may not be perfect, but Ron was more than thankful for what he had.

Still, he had to admit, a girlfriend would be pretty cool to have. Someone to love and have fun with all the time, someone to be close to in ways one couldn't be with others. It must be awesome. Releasing a contented sigh, Ron finally came to his next location which is that of Club Banana. He enters the store, scanning for Monique, only to discover she wasn't anywhere to be found. She must have had the day off.

"So much for engaging in a conversation with Monique. Ah, well. I'll just get some clothes and be on my way. Yep, sounds like a plan.", Ron mused to himself, happy and care-free as usual as he continued walking through the store.

However, as he walked past the changing rooms, Ron felt something from behind grab him by the shirt and quickly pull him into one of the rooms. He soon found himself landing on the seating bench inside the room as another form straddled atop him, their hands coming to rest on his shoulders. When he opened his eyes, Ron was met by a most unexpected surprise as the identity of the person who grabbed him was revealed.

"Adrena Lynn?!", Ron gasped, shocked to see the blonde villainess for the first time since she was arrested about two years ago.

"Miss me, Ronnie?", Adrena Lynn purred, a seductive smirk gracing her lovely face.

"Why are you here?! What do you want?! Wait a second, you're here to get revenge on me for ruining your career, aren't you? That's why you're here! You want me to pay for destroying your life of fame!", Ron said frantically before Lynn placed a hand over his mouth to prevent him from shouting or screaming his head off.

"Relax, Ronnie, I'm not here to hurt you.", Adrena assured, removing her hand from Ron's mouth once he calmed down.

"Really? You're not?", Ron inquired, briefly raising a confused eyebrow as he stared at the female daredevil.

"Of course not, Ronnie.", Adrena chuckled, leaning her face closer to Ron's, much to his utter discomfort.

"Okay... then why are you here?", Ron asked nervously.

"Oh, I just wanted to have some fun... with you.", Adrena answered, her voice becoming more sultry in tone as she lowered her face closer to Ron's own.

"M-M-Me?! Why?", Ron stuttered.

"Isn't it obvious? I'm just crazy about you, Ronnie.", Adrena cooed, licking her bottom lip in a seductive, hungry manner as she gently caressed his cheek with her left hand.

"I... I don't get it. I mean, I don't understand what this is all about.", Ron gulped, not at all comfortable with the current situation.

Now, it was true that Ron had many fantasies involving beautiful women, but he could never have imagined something like this happening to him. And while Adrena Lynn could be regarded as stunningly attractive, her advances towards him unsettled and unnerved him more than Kim when she was influenced by the moodulator. The way her hands roamed his upper body, massaging his chest and shoulders, as her slowly grinding hips remained straddled atop his as they continued their ministrations. It was all so weird and... wrongsick! It threatened to send his mind into overload.

"Don't worry, Ronnie. Everything will make sense soon enough.", Adrena whispered, her lips just mere centimeters away from his own as she began to close in on the hapless young adult.


A ball of fiery green plasma destroys the door to the changing room, stopping Adrena Lynn's advances on Ron Stoppable instantly. She barely has enough time to turn around as a pair of gloved, green and black hands roughly grab her by the shirt and remove her from Stoppable's lap. The next thing the blond daredevil villainess notices is a pair of angry, emerald eyes glaring directly into her own before she is thrown across the entire length of the store. Adrena Lynn crashes through several of clothing and merchandise display cases before coming to an abrupt halt, her body completely smothered and buried in various outfits and attire that were displayed.

"Keep your filthy hands off of him!", Shego shouted at the top of her lungs, standing firmly in place at the entrance of the changing room as Ron's eyes widened in disbelief.

"Shego?! What're you doing here?!", Ron exclaimed, completely baffled by the deadly pale green beauty's unforeseen arrival.

Ron couldn't believe Shego was here, let alone that she was seemingly rescuing him from Adrena Lynn. Of all the people in the world, never could he'd have guessed that Shego would be the one to save him from being seduced by a crazed, freaky female villain. Why would she even want to protect him? What was going on here anyway?!

"Never mind! Time to move it, sidekick!", Shego responds, rushing over and helping the blond-haired boy to his feet.

"Yeah, but why did you...", Ron began to speak only to be quickly silenced.

"Shut it, Stoppable! Now, c'mon, let's get out of here!", Shego ordered, grabbing and pulling Ron by his right arm before rushing out of Club Banana as fast as their feet would allow them to travel.

By the time Adrena Lynn managed to get herself untangled from her predicament, Shego and Ron were long gone from Club Banana and Middleton Mall. This made the daredevil villainess furious, her anger warring with her disappointment. She had Ron Stoppable right where she wanted him! If it wasn't for Shego coming to his rescue, she would've had him wrapped around her finger. She would get her chance again, that she promised, but first she was going to have a little chat with Shego regarding a certain blond-haired hero.


The Stoppable Residence

Home of Ron Stoppable

The door of the Stoppable residence opened, allowing Shego and Ron Stoppable to enter the premises. She quite literally ran all the way back to his home, pulling Ron along by his arm, her gloved hand firmly locked around his wrist like an iron vice. She quickly shut the door behind them and marched towards the living room, refusing to release her grip on him until they made their way to the front of the sofa. They stood their for several moments, neither saying a word to each other as silence reigned in the otherwise empty Stoppable household.

Ron still couldn't believe what had transpired. He went to Middleton Mall for something to do only to be caught up in something involving Adrena Lynn and Shego, something that apparently involved him. Speaking of the deadly pale green beauty, Ron couldn't help but wonder... why did Shego rush in to save him? Why did it even matter to her? What was all of this really about? There was just so many thoughts and questions racing through his mind at this point, all of them centered on this particular event.

"You okay, Stoppable?", Shego asks in stern voice, startling Ron from his thoughts, her dark jade irises looking over the heroic blond's entire body from head to toe.

"Uh... yeah, I guess. Heh heh.", Ron answered with a nervous chuckle, taking his hand to rub the back of his neck.

"Good. Once I'm certain Ms. Bats-in-her-Belfry isn't going to show up, I'll leave you alone.", Shego replied, seemingly indifferent to his presence and to the events that transpired.

"Um... Shego... would you mind telling me what all of that was about? I don't know if you realized it, but I'm pretty confused about this whole situation here... and it doesn't help with you standing in my living room and all. So... basically what I'm asking is, uh, what's going on?", Ron asked in response, nervously fidgeting with his fingers as he locked gazes with the beautiful villainess.

"It's nothing you have to worry about.", Shego deadpanned, not at all thrilled with discussing the topic with Kimmie's sidekick.

"Yeah, well, I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with you on this one. First, I'm pulled into a Club Banana changing room by Adrena Lynn, then you come to my rescue for no apparent reason, followed by you dragging me all the way home without so much as a single threat of inflicting harm or threatening my life. I don't know about you, but it certainly sounds a bit weird, at least to me... and that's a lot considering my motto is 'never be normal'. So, could you tell me what this is all about? I mean, if you don't mind.", Ron countered evenly.

"Do you really want to know what this is all about?", Shego inquired after releasing a heavy sigh, taking a few steps closer towards him.

"Well... yeah. I mean... that is, I think I deserve at least that much, ya know.", Ron stammered, taking a few steps back only for the villainess to continue advancing until only a small gap of space was left between them.

"Do you really want to know?", Shego inquired once again, this time arching an eyebrow as her gaze focused solely on Ron Stoppable.

"Yes, I have to know.", Ron answered, his voice just short of a whisper.

It was then that Shego noticed the determined and serious expression on his face, confirming her in knowing that he wouldn't stop until he would receive answers. But how could she explain it to him, let alone know where to begin with an explanation? Releasing a light sigh, Shego merely stared at the heroic young adult, unable to find words that could explain the situation that involved them both. It was then that, for a brief couple of seconds, she found herself getting lost in those gentle and caring chocolate-brown orbs of Ron Stoppable.

Shaking herself from this trance, Shego's glared at him before reaching out to roughly grab two handfuls of his oversized red t-shirt and proceeded to pull him closer. If he were to judge her actions and the angry glare of her emerald eyes, Ron would have to say that he was in for a world of hurt very soon. The phrase 'beauty kills' was one of the many thoughts that entered his mind as Shego's face became closer to his own, so close that he could feel her breath against his lips. She wouldn't kill him, Ron was certain of that fact since he never known her to ever cross that line, but causing severe injury was another case entirely. And this reasoning alone made Ron a little more than nervous, a twinge of fear surfacing once again on this summer day.

"Then again, maybe we should forget it, Shego. I mean, after all, I was kinda being a bit... MMMMFFFPH!", Ron begins stammering once again only to be silenced in a most unexpected way.

It was then that Ron Stoppable was silenced as Shego captured his lips with her own in a passionate kiss, a kiss that made him feel like he was in heaven. Nothing could compare to it, not even the kiss from the moodulator-influenced Kim could come close to challenging it. It seemed to last for an eternity, not that he cared if it would ever end. Unfortunately, it did come to an end, but not before he felt something... something that Shego also felt when they kissed.

Once the kiss ended, Shego and Ron once again gazed into each other's eyes, each wondering if the other felt the connection. This did not last. For no sooner than the kiss ended, Shego once again grabbed Ron by his t-shirt and narrowed her dark emerald irises at the heroic young adult.

"Listen, and I mean listen good, Stoppable! If you tell anyone about this... you're dead. Got it?!", Shego warned with a menacing glare, her emerald irises staring deep into Ron's chocolate-brown orbs.

"Uh-huh.", Ron agreed without hesitation, his mind still somewhat in a daze from the kiss as face still remained colored with a crimson blush.

And with that taken care of, Shego released her grip on his clothing and made her way to the door. But just as she opened the door she couldn't help but spare a glance back at Ron. Closing her eyes Shego rushed out of the Stoppable household, slamming the door shut as she quickly made her way back to her hovercraft. A few minutes pass, but Ron Stoppable remained standing in the exact spot where he and Shego engaged in the kiss. He was barely aware that his pet mole rat Rufus had finally awakened from his long nap, crawling out of his pocket and up onto his shoulder.

"Hnk! What's wrong?", Rufus asked, curious as to why his friend and owner was standing silently in the living room.

"Rufus, you'll never believe what happened to me, buddy.", Ron answered, a heavenly smile forming on his facial features.


Café Villainess

Later that Evening

Seated at her table alone, her mind still troubled after what happened between her and Ron Stoppable, Shego finished drinking her eighteenth shot of whiskey that evening. She wasn't much of a drinker, not that it mattered because of her unique powerset she was incapable of easily shrugging off the effects that immense amounts of alcohol would cause to a normal human being. She couldn't believe what had happened. She kissed Ron Stoppable!

What was she thinking?! What could have driven her to do such an impulsive act of intimacy? It wasn't like she cared about him, or that she was actually attracted to him, was she?! And yet, even as her conflicted mind tried to deny and sort through everything that raced through her, she couldn't stop herself from revisiting that moment, the kiss they shared, over and over again. Her heart, body, mind and soul were literally at war with each other in regards to Ron Stoppable... and she didn't know why!

Releasing a heavy sigh, Shego decided to contemplate on the issue further, if only so it might help her figure out what was going on within herself. She didn't know why she kissed him. But when she did, when her lips captured his in that instant of passion and desire, it felt... nice. When she kissed him, it just felt right. And then there was the connection, the spark that she never felt before when the kiss occurred. Never before had she felt this way in regards to anyone or anything.

But could she allow herself to trust someone again? Could she allow herself to become close to anyone after all she had been through? Could she allow herself to fall in love? Could it be that the love, trust, loyalty, friendship and companionship of another was what she truly desired all along? And if so, can she take that risk... even with someone like Ron Stoppable?

No, she couldn't let that happen. She could never allow herself to care for anyone or anything; she could never allow herself to trust anyone ever again. She was hurt before, betrayed by family and friends alike in the past. What makes Ron Stoppable any different from them? Besides, how could he ever care for and love someone like her?

She was a villainess. A ruthless and cunning mercenary of the greatest skill and ability. A snarky, sarcastic, aggressive, pale green-skinned, plasma-blasting, cosmic-empowered freak. How could Ron Stoppable ever come to accept someone like her?

She wouldn't get any more time that evening to contemplate these thoughts as a certain blonde, female daredevil villainess bursts into the café, much to Shego's chagrin. This was the last thing she needed to deal with right now. Then again, if a fight would ensue, at least she could work her frustration out on Adrena Lynn's wretched hide. And sure enough, Adrena Lynn marched over to Shego's table, her glaring eyes focused on the deadly pale green beauty as she rested her hands atop the table as she stood.

"Think you're pretty slick, don't ya? Rushing in and taking Ronnie away before I could have my fun with him.", Adrena Lynn remarked in a huff.

"Your definition of 'fun' is one he doesn't need! Stoppable doesn't deserve to be seduced, used and then eventually get tossed aside just so you can get pleasure and a sick thrill out of it!", Shego counters, rising out of her seat and getting directly in Adrena Lynn's face.

"Why should you care? It's not like he's your boyfriend or anything. Last time I checked, he was available. Therefore, he's fair game.", Adrena shot back, resting her hands on her hips.

"Doesn't matter! You're not going to hurt him! Not as long as I'm around!", Shego proclaimed, igniting her fists in fiery, blazing, emerald plasma as she took a fighting stance.

Adrena Lynn realized that she wasn't a match for Shego in a physical confrontation. It would be suicidal, at best, if she were to fight Shego on her own terms. Adrena Lynn was smarter than that; she wouldn't engage in a fight she couldn't win. However, when it came to psychological warfare, especially of the nature of how protective Shego seemed to be of Ron Stoppable, she definitely had the advantage. And she would exploit it to her benefit, thus gaining an edge over the otherwise unconquerable former member of Team Go.

"You can't protect him forever, Shego. Sooner or later, I'll get him alone. All to myself. And once I do, there will be nothing you can do about it.", Adrena Lynn stated with an evil grin before turning and walking away.

"We'll see about that.", Shego growled beneath her breath.
The Affections of a Villainess- Chapter 1

Author's Notes

What's the difference between Shego and Adrena Lynn's interest in Ron Stoppable? Well, it's like this. Adrena Lynn is interested in him purely for pleasure and perhaps revenge. She wants to seduce Ron, have her fun with him, and then toss him aside when she's had her fun. It could be seen as her form of payback towards Team Possible. It makes sense in a sort of twisted, freaky way.

Shego, on the other hand, is secretly attracted to Ron. But she's conflicted and in denial of this fact, of this acknowledgement that there's someone who can truly accept her without fear or judgment of who she is and what she's done. She's not in love with him, at least not yet, but given time she will discover that she does care for him greatly, more than she's cared about anyone or anything in her life. And it is that compassion for him, that unbreakable bond she forms with him, that will lead to love.

And there will be reasons given to why Shego is conflicted about trusting, caring and coming to love Ron Stoppable. Someone hurt her in the past, someone betrayed her trust and shattered her heart. That's one of the main driving points in her ensuring that Adrena Lynn never gets her hands on Ron. It was also one of the reasons she became a villain, one of the numerous reasons that she departed Team Go. And all of that will be explored in this story.

Prepare for some spying and some major jealousy from Shego in the coming chapters. Because Shego and Adrena Lynn aren't the only women who've begun to notice Ron Stoppable. It will be so the drama for all involved... and some bon-diggity humor to go along with it!

Big things are going down in the Marvel Universe.

We're months away from the next big event: Secret Wars.

And if you're a reader of Gerry Duggan's Hulk, you'll know that something massive and truly devastating is about to take place. It would appear that the newest Hulk persona, Doc Green, is in fact a prelude to the very being who is destined to conquer the Marvel Universe, kill all its heroes and villains, and annihilate every major threat that dares to oppose his conquest.

Yes, it would appear that Doc Green is destined to become the 616-Universe version of...

The Maestro!!!

Speaking of which, it would appear that Peter David's Maestro from Future Imperfect will be a major antagonist for the 2099 reality/universe, as he's conquered it, before becoming involved in the upcoming Secret Wars event! I feel bad for Miguel. Spidey 2099 is gonna need A LOT of help!!!

If you want to get caught up on Gerry Duggan's Hulk, I've listed some Hulk #7-9. Check them out!

Favorite Comic of All Time- Incredible Hulk #611…

I'm great at writing and I hope to get some of my work published in the future.

Currently I'm working on several fanfiction projects because, 1) I want to do so for entertainment; and 2) I want to give fans something to talk about.

I heard that you wanted someone to do a comic adaptation of your fic "Avatar and the Destroyer of Worlds" and I was experimenting with drawings of covers and main scenes. Would you be ok with me posting some early concept sketches and fanart of DOW? I'll make sure to link back to your page and credit you for your work.

That's all right with me. I appreciate any fan art that's inspired by any of my stories. So, go right ahead. As long as you give credit to myself and my stories, I have no problem. :)
