_Why can't I get over him? (Don't be stupid you know you fell in love with him as soon as you saw him),_ Kimberly told herself. _He probably hates me and I don't blame him. I should have never let go of him I'm so dumb._ A single tear rolled down her cheek. _Why do they always have to play the saddest song on the radio when you're completely depressed?_ Kim thought as she listened to the lyrics to How Do I Live, By LeeAnn Rimes. "Oh Tommy I love you so much," Kim said aloud.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, please fasten your seatbelts will be landing in Angel Grove momentarily," The stewardess said.
Kim wiped her eyes and cleared her throat. _Okay, I'm ready.... I think,_ Kim said to herself.
Right before she got off the plane Kim took a deep breath and got off the plane. _There they are,_ she thought, _Oh God._
"Hey, Kim, over here!" Rocky yelled.
"Rocky!" Kim screeched as she jumped into his arms.
"It's so good to see you Kim I've... well we all have missed you so much.... Especially Tommy," he whispered.
Kim blushed. _Maybe he does still love me,_ Kim thought with a tingle. "So I see you're wearing Blue.... Now I wonder what that means."
"Yeah I wonder. Now I think there is a couple people who are dying to say Hi to you."
"Yeah I better get over there."
"Hey Kimberly," Kat said
"Kat." Kim said dryly. She didn't know why but she just didn't like Kat that much.
"It's so good to see you. How have you been?" Kats asked.
"Just fine.... I guess."
"Kim this is Tanya, Tanya Kim, Kim Tanya." Kat said.
"Great to finally meet you! The others have told me a lot about you," Tanya said with a smile.
"It's great to meet you too!" Kim said as she hugged Tanya.
"Hi-ya Kim," Adam said
"Adam! You look... great!" Kim said while giving her friend a huge hug.
"Aw thanks, Kim. You look good too," Adam said with a blush.
_Oh God there's Tommy. What do I say to him how do I act?_
_There she is. God why does she always have to look so hot? Oh God she's is coming toward me. What do I say? How do I act?_ Tommy thought.
While Kim was walking towards Tommy she began to feel real dizzy so she fainted into Tommy's arms. "Whoa!" Tommy said as he caught her. "She has a history of doing this." Tommy said to his friends "Let get her over to my house." Tommy said.
"Well you fainted and I caught you," Tommy told her.
_Wow he had held me in his arms._ Kim thought dreamily. "Where am I?"
"Where are the others?"
"They left. You were out for awhile."
"What time is it?"
"Wow and you were nice enough to bring me to your house and look after me. How sweet." _Did I just say that?_
Tommy blushed. "Well you have done the same thing for me. Do you have a place to stay?"
"Well, um... I sorta forgot to get a hotel room." _He must think I'm stupid._
"My parents are out of town for a couple of weeks so you can here in the guest room, it's right next to mine."
"Tommy, I don't want to burden you."
"It's not burden at all. I would enjoy your company." _I can't believe I just said that._
"Thanks Tommy!" She kissed him on the cheek. Tommy's cheeks flushed, and Kim smiled at the fact that she could still make Tommy blush. _God he looks so good!_ Kim's eyes scanned Tommy's body. He had his hair flowing down his shoulders just the way Kim loved it. Kim started to stare at him. Tommy noticed this and decided to break the silence. "Kim, do you wanna watch a movie?"
"Um sure. What movie is it?"
"Scream." Tommy said as he got up to put the tape in.
"Oh." _I hope it's not that scary. All I need is for me to lose ground and grab him._
Tommy joined her on the couch and turned the TV on. As soon as a real scary part came on Kim jumped and wrapped her arms around Tommy. Their eyes locked on each other. Kim pulled away from him. "Oh... I... um... sorry I didn't mean to...."
"That's okay I enjoyed it."
Kim and Tommy's faces grew bright red.
"So um, Kim." Tommy said as he lowered the volume on the TV. "How's things going with you and Dave?"
"We... uh... broke up 2 weeks after I mailed you the... the... letter." Kim said dropping her head.
"Oh." Kim looked over at Tommy and saw tears stream down his face. Tommy looked away from her. "Tommy... I'm....."
"What?" He mumbled.
"I'm really sorry about sending you that letter. It was awful of me to do that. It must have really hurt you. Can you ever forgive me?"
Tommy looked straight into her eyes, smiled, and said, "Of course Kim I could never be mad at you."
"Thanks, Tommy. You're the best," Kim said as she wrapped her arms around him. _Please don't let this end,_ Tommy thought. He rubbed her back. "I love you so much if only you loved me the way I do you," Kim whispered.
"What?" Tommy asked.
"Oh nothing. I think I'm gonna hit the sack. G'night Tommy."
"Me too. See you in the morning."
The two teens walked upstairs and went to bed.
"Get away from me!" Kim screamed.
"Kim, it's me Tommy!"
"Tommy? Tommy!" She yelled as she wrapped her arms around tears running down her face.
"Shhh Shhh it's okay, you're safe now," he said while stroking her back. "What was your dream about?"
"Me and you were talking when monsters or something attacked us and killed you 'cause you were trying to protect me from getting hurt. Then they were beating on me when you woke me up. Tommy, I don't know why but I'm so scared."
"It's okay, Kim, I'm here now no one's gonna hurt you."
"Thanks, Tommy." She said still holding on to him.
"Now you go back to sleep so you're not exhausted tomorrow," Tommy said.
"I can't go back to sleep I'm to scared."
"Would it make you feel better if I got into the bed with you? It is a King size...."
"Yeah, I guess so. Tommy, you're such a good friend to me." She said kissing him on the cheek.
"I'd do anything for you."
_Wow he' s so terrific!_ "Night," she said
"G'night." He said as he got above the covers.
When Tommy woke up he stepped out of bed and walked into the bathroom thinking that Kim was downstairs eating breakfast. What he saw shocked him. There was Kim just stepping out of the shower completely naked. "Tommy!" Kim yelled as she grabbed a towel.
Tommy was fully awake now. "AAAHHH! Kim sorry," he said as he ran out of the bathroom. Kim quickly got dressed a ran downstairs and bumped into Tommy.
"Oh, Kim, I'm sorry I walked in on you."
"Hey it's okay. Don't worry about it. By the way cute boxers," she said as she looked at the smiley faces all over his boxer shorts.
"Oh this old thing." He said laughing.
She punched him in the arm lightly. "By the way I really want to thank you for spending the night with me."
"No sweat. What time is it?"
"It's 7:35. Why?"
"Oh 'cause I told the others we'd meet them in the park at 8."
"Cool... So I hear you're seeing Kat." She said with a sad tone to her voice.
"Yeah. We're not serious though."
"Kim, the others and I are going to a club tonight wanna come?"
"Sure what club?"
"The Love Shack."
"Oh." _Great we had to go to the place where Tommy first told me he loved me. Maybe history will repeat itself_
"Well I better get ready," Tommy said as he went upstairs to take a shower.
Kimberly laid down on the couch and started to sob. "We will never be together again. He's with Kat not me. Damnit! Why did I let him go!?" Kimberly said. Kimberly wiped her eyes and stood up. _Calm down Kimberly. Some one once said love will find a way, I just hope that's true._
Tommy was in his room getting dressed. "God I love her so much. I don't know if I can see her again and resist the erg to grab her and kiss her," he said aloud, tears in his eyes. He finished getting dressed and went down stairs. "Ready?" He asked.
"Okay," she said while following him out the door and into his jeep. They were silent the whole way to the park. They walked over to the picnic table where their friends were sitting.
"Kim are you okay?" Adam asked.
"Yeah I'm fine."
"Good you had us worried." Rocky said.
"Well I'm just fine and dandy, thanks for the concern," Kim said with a smile. Kat went over to Tommy and gave Tommy a kiss on the lips. "Just shoot me," Kim whispered.
Rocky looked over at her. "You okay?" He whispered.
They spent the rest of the day listening to Kat go on and on and on about her and Tommy. Tommy on the other hand was to busy looking at Kim to notice until Kat grabbed him and gave him a long kiss. Kim couldn't take it anymore she got up and ran as fast as she could tears streaming down her face.
"Kim! Wait!" Rocky screamed as he went after her.
Everyone just stared at Kat. "Kat!" They all yelled.
"What?" They all looked at her" Oh! My bad!" Tanya looked at her sternly.
"What?!" Kim sobbed.
"Kim I know what's bugging you and I want to let you know that it's okay."
"How did you know?"
"I dunno just the way you looked at him I guess and how you ran off. Listen, all of us, even Tanya want you and Tommy back together."
"But he's with Kat and besides he doesn't love me anymore."
"Kim, yes he does. Didn't you see the way he was looking at you all day?"
"Well.... I guess but, Rocky, I don't know what to say to him."
"Just be your charming self."
"You're sweet," she said as she kissed him on the cheek.
"Hey, I speak the truth," Rocky said with a smile.
"Well, Rocko, I'll try."
"I'll just give you guys a little boost."
"Rocky what are you planning?"
"Hey give me some credit!"
"It's okay. Now lets get back to the others."
"What am I gonna tell them?"
"I'll think of something."
"Kim what happened?" Tommy asked.
Rocky cut her off. "Well Kim... um... she had... um womanly problems... yeah!" Rocky said.
"ROCKY!" Kim, Tanya and Kat said in unison.
The 3 girls rolled their eyes. "Guys how bout we all take a camping trip tomorrow? I know the perfect spot a cliff overlooking Whisper Lake. What do ya say?"
"Sounds great" Adam said.
"Count me in" Tanya said.
"Cool!" Tommy said.
"Sorry guys, I can't. Mother daughter Trip tomorrow," Kat said sadly.
"That's to bad Kat," Tanya said.
"Well lets go home and get ready for tonight," Tommy said.
"OK bye y'all," Adam said.
"Rocky you are the best!" Kim said giving him a silent high-five.
"You know it girl," Kim giggled.
"Hi Aunt Joyce! It's me Kimberly, is Buffy there?"
"Hi sweetie! Good to here from you. Hold on Buffy's here."
"Hey Buff, it's me Kim"
"Kim! Great to here from you! Where are you?"
"Back in Angel Grove."
"Cool! So how's Tommy?"
"Fine. I have to thank you for letting me have that white dress! It's awesome!"
"You're welcome. You goin out tonight?"
"Yep to a club and I want to impress Tommy."
"You go girl!"
"Well I better get goin. Wish me luck?"
"The best of luck! Let me know how it goes!"
"I'll make sure to! Bye! Give my love to Aunt Joyce!"
"I will bu-bye."
Kim heard a knock on her door. "Kim you ready?" Tommy called.
"Yep," she said as she opened she said as she opened her door.
Tommy's mouth dropped open "Wow," he mumbled.
"Thanks. Ready? Tommy? Earth to Tommy Come in Tommy?"
"Oh yeah I'm ready. Kim you look..." _Hot!_ "...stunning."
"Thanks you look...." She looked at him to see that he had on a white tank top and a red flannel shirt over it and blue jeans on "Sexy. Did I just say that?" She whispered to herself. Tommy's face turned bright red. "I mean you look good... yeah."
"Thanks," he said his face still red.
"Well I guess we better go...." Kim said.
They were silent the whole way to the club. When they got in Adam and Tanya were dancing, and Rocky was sitting at a table alone. When Kat saw Tommy she took him to the dance floor. Kim went over to the table with Rocky. "Hey Rocko."
"Oh, Kim. Hi!" Rocky said with a smile.
"Rocky there are plenty of pretty girls here so why don't you go talk to one?"
"Shy?" Rocky blushed. "Rocky, it's okay. I think it's cute."
"C'mon let's dance!"
"But it's a slow song."
"Rocky, I don't have cooties."
They both laughed. "Okay." They both stepped out on the dance floor and started to sway back and forth.
"Rocky, I wanna thank you for all that you've done for me. You're a really great friend."
"Aw thanks, Kimmie. I think you're swell too."
Kim smiled at him. "Rocko, you got to get a girl."
"Yeah, yeah, I know, but no one likes me."
"Rocky that's cause you're to uptight around girls. Just be your sweet self. Girls love the sensitive guys."
"Hey I'm not...."
"Rocky, don't be ashamed. I saw you cry when we watched Romeo and Juliet last time I was here."
"I had something in my eye."
"Yeah... Okay macho man. Just trust me, be yourself and you'll get a great girl."
"Ya think so?"
"I know so."
The song ended. "Now you go dance with Tommy."
"I don't know about that."
"Oh just go ask him besides you look so good tonight any guy would throw themself at you."
"I'll take that as a complement." She kissed him on the cheek.
Kim went up to Tommy. "Tommy.... wanna dance?"
"Kim.... .. um sure! You don't mind do you Kat?"
"No of course not! I'll just go get a soda or something."
"UN-Break my Heart" came on. _Oh it had to be this song,_ Kim thought.
_Oh great,_ Tommy thought as he wrapped his arms around Kim's waist.
"This feels so right," Kim whispered.
Tommy pulled Kim closer to him. Kim rested her head on his shoulder. "I love you," Tommy whispered.
"What?" Kim said.
"Oh... um... Nothing."
The song ended. "Thanks for the dance, Kim"
"Any time." Kim said with a smile. Kim spent the rest of the night dancing with Adam and Rocky and a little bit with Tommy. By the time Kim and Tommy got home it was 3 AM.
"Well I think it's time for beddie bye," Tommy said.
"I so agree with you I'm way tired."
"Night," Tommy said.
One hour later....
"God, I can't sleep it's too hot out. I'll go for a swim in the pool." Kim said as she got out of bed. She went down stairs when she heard a splash. She peeked around the corner and saw Tommy. When he got out of the pool her mouth dropped open. He was naked!
"Kim!" Tommy said as he saw her.
"I... um... was hot so I wanted to go for a swim.... sorry."
"Hey it's okay. Come on in the water's great!"
"Okay." She dove in with her clothes on. Tommy stared at her. Then she realized that she was wearing: a white T-shirt. "Whoops." She said. Tommy laughed. They stayed in the pool till 5:30. "We're gonna be so tired tomorrow. When do we have to get up?" Kim asked.
"Then we might as well get ready to go now since it's 5:30."
"Yeah you're right" Tommy said getting out of the pool without grabbing a towel.
"Wow," Kim whispered as she got out of the pool and went to the bath room to take a shower.
"C'mon guys!" Rocky yelled from the drivers' seat.
"Sorry but Kim packed... well you know how she is," Tommy said lugging a huge trunk behind him.
"Hey a girl has got to be prepared for anything," Kim said in protest.
"Kim god were staying the weekend not a month!" Rocky said.
"Very funny Rocky," Kim said sarcastically.
"How long does it take to get there?" Tommy said while putting the trunk in the back of the red van.
"3 hours." Rocky said.
"Good I need sleep." Kim said while getting in the back seat.
"No fair Kimmie! I need sleep too!" Tommy whined.
"What did you guys do last night anyway?" Tanya asked.
"We um... swam till 5:30" Tommy confessed.
"Ooooooooooo." They all said like little children.
"Oh shut up." Kim said.
"You know you guys can share the back seat." Adam said.
"Really how?" Kim questioned.
"You do a thing called sitting next to each other." Rocky said.
"Wow really? Never thought of that." Tommy said sarcastically.
Tommy sat down next to Kim.
_This is nice_ Kim thought.
1 hour later....
_God I'm so tired. Oh who cares_ Kim thought.
Kim snuggled up next to Tommy and rested her head on his chest and then just completely fell into a deep sleep.
Tommy looked down at her and smiled then he fell asleep.
"5 more minutes mom." Kim mumbled snuggling closer to Tommy.
"Wake up!" Rocky screamed.
"Uh what.... I'm up" Tommy said.
"Me too." Kim said.
Then they all got out of the van.
"Wow it's beautiful here." Kim said.
"God it's hot." Tommy said.
"I know. Well I don't know 'bout you guys but I'm going swimming" Kim said while taking off her shirt and shorts to reveal a black and pink 2 piece. The guys just stared. "Ummmm guys?" Kim said.
"Oh what?" Tommy said.
"Tommy wanna go swimming with me." Kim asked.
"Sure!" He said while taking his shirt off.
"We'll stay here and set camp." Tanya told them.
"Okay." Kim said. Kim stepped to the edge of the cliff.
"Wow we must be 100 feet up. Cool there is even stairs so you don't have to climb."
"Yeah they built them cause someone was climbing up and fell and got killed on the rocks." Tommy said.
"Ouch." Kim mumbled.
"Ready?" Tommy asked.
"Totally!" Kim said as she backed up a few feet.
Kim started to run and then dove off the cliff and Tommy followed her and they both splashed into the water.
"Nice dive!" Tommy said.
They both swam for about a half an hour and then Kim swam to the small bank of sand that was at the bottom of the cliff then Tommy followed her and they both sat on the bank.
"Wanna head back up?" Kim said.
"Sure!" Tommy said standing up and extending his hand to Kim to help her. She took his hand then Tommy pulled her toward him and kissed her deeply their tongues twinning around each other.
_God this feels so good don't let this moment end_ Kim thought to herself.
Tommy wrapped his arms around her drawing her closer to him. _Don't let this stop,_ Tommy said mentally.
Kim reluctantly pulled away and looked up into his eyes.
"I love you Kim." Tommy said.
"I love you too and I will never leave you again." Kim said.
They kissed again and then back to camp hand in hand.
"Whoa! I wonder what they did down there." Adam said.
"Well.... Something real good." Rocky said with a smile on his face.
"Hi guys!" Kim said dreamily.
"So what did you guys do down there?" Rocky asked stepping in front of them.
"This." Tommy said while taking Kim in his arms and kissing tenderly.
"Oh Tommy." Kim mumbled.
"Well it's about time!" Tanya said.
"Hey!" Kim said.
"We thought we were gonna have to play Truth or Dare or Spin the Bottle!" Rocky said laughing.
Kim slapped him playfully.
The gang spent the rest of the night.
"You guys did a nice job setting up tents 'n' stuff but only 3."
"Well yeah 1 for me cause I snore loudly, 1 for Adam and Tanya and...."
"I like the way you think." Kim said.
"So do I." Tommy said.
"They spent the rest of the day listening to Kim tell her stories of Florida and how the Pan Globals were coming soon and she's nervous and everything.
"Don't worry Kim we'll be there to cheer you on!" Adam said.
"Oh thanks you guys are the best!"
"We know you'll win too!" Tanya said.
"Well I sure do hope so! A gold metal is a great achievement!" Kim said.
"Yep and it'll be yours! I just know it!" Tommy said!
"Thanks sweetie!" Kim said while giving him a teasing kiss.
"I don't know about you guys but I'm gonna hit the sack!" Rocky said.
"Yeah us too" Kim and Tommy said.
"Ditto for us" Adam and Tanya said.
"Night!" They all said.
Kim and Tommy go into their tent and changed into their PJ's when Tommy turned around he gasped. Kim had on Pink silk lingerie.
"Wow." he whispered.
"Looks like we match." Kim said looking at his white silk boxers.
"You are so beautiful." Tommy said.
Kim leaned over and kissed him. Tommy pushed her onto the ground gently, their lips still locked.
"I love you Kimberly Ann Hart and I will never leave you." Tommy said whispering into her ear.
"Tommy.... I really hate to spoil the mood but what are you going to do about Kat?"
"Well.... I.... .. guess I'll just tell her it's over and that I'm back with you now.... I guess."
"I hope she's not to heart-broken over this I still want to be her friend.... I think."
"Lets just go to sleep and think it over tomorrow."
"OK." Kim said while snuggling up closer to Tommy and resting her head on his chest
The sun peeked through Tommy and Kim's tent and beamed on the pair sleeping soundly together in each others arms. Kim slowly opened her eyes only to see the sun beaming into her eyes. She sat up and looked lovingly at Tommy who was fast asleep. She leaned over and gave him a soft kiss. Tommy stirred and then the kiss got deeper. Tommy was completely awake now and didn't want the kiss to break so he thought he'd keep it interesting so he gently slide his tongue into Kim's mouth. Kim was shocked for a moment , then relaxed and her tongue meet Tommy's. Tommy gently slid his hand up Kim's leg and up her slip and she slid it right back down and pushed him off her.
"Tommy not like this not with our friends here. Besides I wanna make you suffer and the more you suffer the better it will make it." Kim said.
"I agree with you but.... see what you do to me?"
They both laughed.
Tommy was on top of Kim now and when she looked down she started to giggle.
"What's so funny?" Tommy asked confused.
"Tommy" She giggled "When did you happen to slip out of your boxers?"
"What?!" He looked down, "OH SHIT!"
He face grew bright red as he grabbed a blanket.
"Don't worry 'bout it Tommy. I like 'em big." She whispered.
Tommy's face grew a brighter shade of red.
"Tell you what I'll make it even" Kim said as she pulled the straps of her slip down revealing her chest. Tommy just stared and Kim giggled at his facial expression and the fact that she could she the erection he was getting through the blanket. Kim pulled the straps back up.
"Kim you.... have a great body."
"So do you." She said while running her hands over he chest and biceps.
Tommy moaned softly.
"I love you Tommy."
"I love yo too Kim.... and always will.... forever and ever."
"Oh Tommy." Kim said with love in her voice.
"Well we better get up." Tommy said.
They both got dressed and left the tent.
"Mornin guys." Rocky said "Breakfast will be ready in a few."
"Good I'm starved!" Kim said.
"Me too." Tommy agreed.
"You guys sleep well?" Rocky asked.
"Extremely well." Kim said a little girlish tone to her voice.
"Where are Adam and Tanya?" Tommy asked.
"They're still in their tent.... gettin dressed I guess."
Then they head a car pull up on the grass. They turned around and saw Kat stepping out of her car.
"Oh man! I really didn't want her here!" Kim whispered to Tommy.
"I didn't either I wanted to be alone with you and think about how to break it off with her."
"Tommy please do it soon. Here she comes."
"Hi guys! Mom let me go early so I thought I would spend the rest of the weekend with you guys" Kat said cheerily and went over to Tommy and kissed him.
_I gonna be sick_ Kim hurled mentally.
"Uh Hi Kat," Tommy said.
"Hi Kat" Kim said a sullen tone in her voice.
"Kat." Rocky grunted not wanting to she Kim be this depressed right now and Tommy for looking so lost in what to do.
"I'm gonna go.... for a.... walk." Kim said taking a last glance at Tommy.
"Okay sweetie but be careful."
"Whoa easy there trigger." Tommy said putting his hands up.
"Tommy you scared me half to death!"
"Sorry. I got worried about you."
"I can take care of myself no need to worry, but thanks for the concern."
Lighting struck a tree behind Kim and she flew forward smacking right into Tommy knocking him down.
"Kim it's okay relax" Tommy said sitting up and rapping his hands around the know shacking Kimberly."
"Sorry but that really scared me there for a second."
Tommy brushed the strands of hair out of Kim's face.
"Tommy, when are you going to break up with Kat?"
"When we go back to camp. I'll tell her."
"Tell her what?"
"That we were never actually meant for each other and that I love you."
"I hope she's not to hurt."
"I hope so too. Kim your shivering." He said while taking off his jacket and wrapping it around her.
"Thanks lets go back to the camp before we catch our death of cold."
"Yeah you're right."
"I guess I'll be sleeping in Rocky's tent tonight huh?"
"Guess so." He said in a whisper.
"I love you Tommy."
"I love you too Kim." He said kissing her softly on the lips.
"Is she okay?" a concerned Kat's asked.
"Yeah she's fine she's with Rocky right now. Kat I um." Tommy began nervously.
"I think that we should um stop.... seeing each other."
Tears developed in Kat's eyes. "Why?!" She yelled.
"I.... I.... I just think that we shouldn't date anymore. I'm in love with someone else."
"It's Kim isn't it." Kat said lowering her head.
"Yeah." Said Tommy in a whisper.
"I always knew that you two would get back together but I always had a small hope. Tommy just promise me we'll be friends."
"Now guess I should go."
"It would be to hard for me to stay here and watch you be with her."
"Are you leaving now?"
They were both silent.
"Bye," Kat said.
Kat got her things went outside, started her car and left.
