That day, Ratchet flew in his starship, the Aphelion, towards the ISSF. After he entered it, he landed his ship within the space station's docking bay. He jumped out of his ship while holding a bouquet of flowers in his hand. He was dressed in his regular clothes. As soon as he rang the buzzer, his image appeared on a monitor within the Possible's apartment. Dr. Possible and his wife noticed him immediately. Mrs. P.: "Well, look who it is. It's Ratchet." Dr. P.: "Hey, Ratchet. How are you doing, my boy?" Ratchet: "Hey, Dr. Possible. Is Kimberly there?" Dr. P.: "Well…she's not in our apartment; she's actually in hers." Ratchet: "Yeah, I thought as much. I can't wait to see how it looks." Dr. P.: "Well, come on in. She's been waiting for you."
He entered the elevator and arrived on another floor of the space station. From there, he walked up to a nearby door. As he stood in front of it, he was scanned. Computer voice: "Recognition confirmed. Ratchet. Access granted."
The door opened for him. He peered his head in. Ratchet: "Kimberly, are you in here?" Kim: "Yeah, I'm in the kitchen right now." Ratchet: "Is it alright if I just let myself in?" Kim: "Sure, of course. I'm just finishing up with making dinner. Come on in, please."
As he made his way inside, the door closed behind him. Continuing in, he had a chance to look around the apartment. The walls were painted in a lovely red and violet color. Near the door was a sofa as well as well as a living room table that was placed front of that. There were also a few shelves and picture frames. The frames contained pictures of her family and herself as well as her friends Ron, Clank and of course, Ratchet. The shelves contained memorabilia from her days in high school, including a few pictures of her and her squad in their cheerleading outfits and a few trophies that she had won from a few cheerleading competitions. Ratchet was amazed with everything that he saw. Ratchet: "Wow, you really did a great job with this place; it looks nice." Kim: "Thanks, I've spent these past few months getting it just right." Ratchet: "Well, it's phenomenal, Kimberly. I like how the everything looks." Kim: "Glad to hear it. I've always wanted to show you the place after I finished it, which was why I didn't want you helping; it would have spoiled the surprise." Ratchet: "By the way, what did you make for dinner? I can smell something really good in there." Kim: "Oh, it's just a little something that I have been working on for a while now. I think I've managed to perfect this recipe just right the last time that I made it. I only hope that it turns out alright." Ratchet: "Eh, I'm sure that whatever you've made will turn out just fine."
He made his way towards the kitchen. As soon as he entered, he spotted Kim, who was still cooking. She wore some regular clothes, consisting of a teal t-shirt, brown pants and white sneakers. She turned around and spotted Ratchet. Kim: "Oh! Ratchet! I didn't notice you were there." Ratchet: "Hey, Kimberly. It's been a while, hasn't it?" Kim: "Yeah, it's good to see you again."
She walked up to him and grabbed his head with both of her hands as she gave him a brief kiss him on the lips. She then noticed the flowers. Kim: "Are those flowers for me?" Ratchet: "Uh, yeah, thought you might need something to spruce up this place a little."
She looked at him in a suspicious look on her face. Ratchet: "OK, OK, they're for you. I picked them out special." Kim: "Aw, you're too sweet."
He handed the flowers over to her as she took them from him. Kim: "Please, come on in, I just finished up with making dinner for us." Ratchet: "Great, can't wait."
She walked back towards the stove. Ratchet: "So, what's the special occasion? You celebrating finally getting this apartment set up?"
She pulled a rectangular, glass pan out of the oven and carried it towards a small round table in the kitchen. Kim: "Well, yeah, that…"
She placed it on the table as Ratchet sat down. Kim: "But also to celebrate us being together for these past few months since we've renewed and rekindled our relationship, so what better way to do that than to have my first dinner in my new place and have it with you?" Ratchet: "You know what? I can't think of anything better than this."
She smiled at him. Soon enough, she sat down and they got on to having dinner together. As they were eating together, they spent the time chatting with each other. They both seemed to enjoy talking with each other almost as much as they just enjoy spending time together. They couldn't possibly be any happier at the time.
After dinner, they sat down on the sofa together. Kim was cozying up with Ratchet while he had his arm around her. Ratchet: "I have to admit, that was a delicious meal. It could have used a little more salt, but other than that, it wasn't half bad." Kim: "I'm glad you liked it. I've spend a lot of time practicing that recipe with my mom. When she heard that I wanted to make it for you, she was more than happy to help me out with it." Ratchet: "Well, that was awfully nice of her. I'll have to thank for that. By the way, I've been meaning to ask you, how's Ron been doing, since he, you know, broke up with you? I know it was difficult since he also had feelings for you, but he did it so that we could be together." Kim: "Oh, yeah…Ron. He's been doing a lot better actually. He does admit that breaking up with me was the most difficult decision he's ever made, but he also mentioned that it was like a huge weight was lifted off his shoulders." Ratchet: "Hm, glad to hear he's doing well. I feel bad for what we've put him through."
Kim suddenly began to feel sad. Kim: "No, it was my fault. I thought I was doing the right thing by going for Ron to avoid you, but what I was really doing was hurting myself and running away from my fears of what others would think of me, for having feelings towards you. What he said to me that day; he was right, I shouldn't let others intimidate and influence me to do what they want me to do and just go for what makes me happy. I shouldn't mind anything that they say. I should have accepted my feelings for you instead of burying them just because I was afraid of what they think…" Ratchet: "Kimberly…"
They leaned in closer to each other and briefly kissed, just then, they heard what sounded like the chime of the Kimmunicator. Ratchet: "Is that…Wade?" Kim: "Yeah…I need to take this."
She sat straight up, leaning closer towards the table. She tapped on it a few times; a holographic monitor appeared near them, displaying an image of Wade. Kim: "Hey, Wade. What's the sitch?" Wade: "Kim, sorry for interrupting your…intimate time with Ratchet, but I just received a message from Talwyn, she said she needs both of you in Meridian City pronto. There's been something strange going on." Ratchet: "Hm…what do you think? Should we answer the call?"
Kim thought for a minute, but then a thrilled grin appeared on her face, she stood up. Kim: "I say we go for it. Ratchet?"
He was speechless at first, but then he also became thrilled. Ratchet: "Yeah, let's do it." Kim: "Wade, tell Talwyn that we're on our way now." Wade: "Got it, Kim. I'll let her know right away."
Wade hung up as Kim rushed over towards another part of the room. Ratchet then witnessed something that amazed him. Before long, Kim was in her mission outfit. Kim: "Let's get going."
Ratchet still seemed very much amazed. He then developed a mesmerized grin. Ratchet: "I'll follow you anywhere." Kim: "Uh, you're the one with the ship, so I would follow you?" Ratchet: "Oh, right. Uh…of course."
He let out a nervous grin as he chuckled in the same manner. Ratchet: "Let's…get going."
They made their way back into the hanger bay, got back into the Aphelion and launched out of the ISSF.
After a long flight, they arrived back in Meridian City. Upon entering the city, they arrived at a mission control base. They landed the ship, got out of it and entered the base. As soon as they arrived in mission control, they met with Talwyn, Cronk, Zephyr, Qwark and Clank. Talwyn: "Ratchet. Kim."
Talwyn rushed over towards them. As soon as she got up to them, she embraced them both. She broke off and looked at both of them as she had both of her hands on their shoulders. Talwyn: "It's so good to see you both again." Kim: "Same here, Talwyn." Ratchet: "So, what's going on? What's the sitch?" Talwyn: "Hm, you guys really are so much alike. Come on, the others have wanted to see you both again."
She walked them towards the holo-viewer within the center of the room. There, the others stood near them. Clank walked up closer towards them. Clank: "Hello, Ratchet. I am glad to see you. And Miss Possible. It is good to see you again." Kim: "It's good to see you, too, Clank."
Cronk and Zephyr approached them next. Cronk: "So, the 2 of you are finally going steady, eh? Good on you to do that." Zephyr: "I knew that you and that girl would end up together, rookie." Cronk: "Aw, young love. Does it not warm your circuitry?"
Qwark approached them next. He grabbed both of them and squeezed them tight. Qwark: "It is so good to see you guys are finally together. I can not believe this. It's moments like this that make me…make me want to…"
He then began to blubber out like a big baby. Qwark: "You 2 grow up so fast!"
Ratchet then broke himself and Kim out of Qwark's arms. Ratchet: "Enough, guys. We're flattered that you're all happy about our relationship, but we know that we weren't called here just so you could smother us." Talwyn: "I'm afraid you're right, Ratchet. A while ago, we picked up on some unusual readings from several planets within the galaxy." Kim: "Unusual readings? Do you have any idea what could be causing them?" Talwyn: "Not really sure. Wade is currently looking into it. But just recently, we found out something else very strange: these readings seemed to be similar to those from…Earth." Ratchet: "Earth? You mean Kimberly's home planet?" Kim: "But what could this mean?"
Suddenly, the holo-viewer within the center of the room began to react strangely. Everyone looked up, projected from the viewer were images of 2 very familiar looking villains: Dr. Drakken and Shego. Ratchet: "Oh, no." Clank: "This…can not be…" Qwark: "Hey, I know them. They're…uh…what are their names again?" Ratchet: "Drakken and Shego." Kim: "Well, this is an expected surprise but more unpleasant than anything." Drakken: "Kim Possible! It's been a long time, hasn't it?" Kim: "Not long enough, I'm afraid." Drakken: "I can see that you have made a few more annoying alien friends other then that cat alien boyfriend of yours." Kim: "Alright, Drakken, what are you and Shego doing in the Polaris Galaxy? What exactly are you up to?"
Drakken then let out a sinister laugh. Drakken: "An excellent question. I'll have you know that we have taken over several planets within this galaxy, with myself and Shego controlling one of them." Ratchet: "Wait a minute. You and Shego are controlling 1 planet? Just 1?" Clank: "With several planets under the control of others besides the both of you?" Kim: "Who else is involved in this?" Shego: "Oh, we're not going to reveal that to you now; that would take the fun out of all of this. It'll will be something for you and your cute little Lombax boyfriend to find out for yourselves." Ratchet: "Are you…challenging us?" Drakken: "But of course. We feel that it would be a lot of fun to watch as you attempt to save all of these planets. I must warn you, however, that it's a big galaxy and saving all of them won't be so easy."
Clank stepped forward a bit. Clank: "Challenge accepted, Drakken." Ratchet: "Oh, for sure. If you think we'll let the galaxy fall under the control of you and a bunch of other nutcases, whoever they are, then you're even more absent-minded than I remembered you to be. What say you to that, Drakken?" Drakken: "Hmph! We shall see who will triumph in the end. Happy hunting, Kim Possible and cat alien boyfriend."
Drakken laughed maniacally as his and Shego's images fade.
Everyone just stood by for a bit. Kim was annoyed as she folded her arms. Kim: "Well, this is I one homecoming that I was hoping to not come across." Ratchet: "Hm, I really would like to know who else is involved in this. Just what are Drakken and Shego up to?" Kim: "So, any ideas on where they could be?" Clank: "Hm…perhaps Wade should be able to find that out."
Just then, Wade's image appeared from the holo-viewer before them. Wade: "I'm way ahead of you guys. I've tracked their signal to a remote planet called Praxis XII. I've uploaded the coordinates to your nav-unit." Ratchet: "Let's go. Clank? You coming?" Clank: "I will be right there."
Ratchet and Kim were about to walk out. Clank followed after them. Talwyn: "We'll remain here and look for any more intel regarding what Drakken and Shego just mentioned to us." Cronk: "Good luck out there, rookie." Zephyr: "Let us know if you need anything from us."
They stopped and looked back towards them. Kim: "Will do, guys." Ratchet: "We'll be back as soon as we're done with Drakken and Shego."
They continued on their way. Talwyn: "Uh, Ratchet? Kim?"
They stopped to look back towards her one last time. Ratchet: "Yeah, Talwyn?" Talwyn: "Um, I'm glad that you both reestablished your feelings for each other and have decided to pursue your relationship. Since the day I first met you guys, I always knew that you would end up together." Ratchet: "Thanks for telling us that and also…thank you for supporting our relationship."
They were then able to approach their ship. Ratchet, Kim and Clank got into it and took off. Talwyn watched as they flew off and left the planet. Talwyn: "Ratchet…Kim…good luck…with everything…"
