Chapter 3- They didn't know that they could feel this way
Lee woke up early and headed out into the woods. The cool crisp air gave her a bit of a chill but she liked it. She went to the one lake where Pinocchio was last night as she found him asleep there. She blushed remembering what happened last night. She couldn't believe he loved her back and she loved him. She gently knelt down to Pinocchio and rubbed his back waking him up. He turned to see her and his eyes widened. "Hey sleepyhead" whispered lee as she helped him sit up. "Hi lee, oh boy, I haven't slept that good in a long time" said Pinocchio with a yawn.
Lee smiled and their hands met. They looked down at their hands and then at each other. Blushing, they stood up hand in hand. "What were you doing out here in the middle of the night Pino?" asked lee walking by his side, her hand still in his. "Oh uh…..I'm a werewolf!" Pinocchio blurted out. His nose grew. They stopped walking and lee gave him a look that read "really?"
"Pinocchio, you are NOT a werewolf, you liar" Laughed lee. Pinocchio smirked at her and laughed too. "Ok really, what were you doing here out in the woods?" asked lee. Pinocchio didn't want to tell her why so he smirked. "if you really want to know….." He shoved her playfully to the ground and ran off laughing "YOULL HAVE TO CATCH ME!" Lee Laughed and got up chasing after him "HEY! GET BACK HERE!" They laughed chasing each other. Pinocchio hid behind a tree and peeked behind to see her coming. As he saw her, he smiled a bit and thought as she was looking around….
"I never had this feeling before. She gives me shakes and shivers I can' ignore and I see that there's more now than just running free"
Lee saw him and smirked. She quietly climbed up into the tree and hang from a branch and smirked. She thought…
"I never felt my heart beat so fast. I'm thinking of him first and of myself last and how happy I want him to be"
She jumped down and tackled Pinocchio. He dodged and Lee fell flat on her butt, causing her to laugh hard. He laughed too and helped her up thinking…..
"It's amazing someone in my life just might be loving me. I didn't know that I could feel this way"
Lee giggled as she saw a butterfly land on him and Pinocchio freaked out a bit, falling to the ground. She helped him up and they walked along side by side thinking….
"its amazing something in my life is better than a dream. I didn't know that I could feel this way"
Pinocchio turned around to see lee gone. He got worried and looked around. She popped out of the leaves and started chasing him. Pinocchio screamed and laughed as he ran away. Lee chased after him and she jumped onto his back.
Pinocchio thought, "She makes me warm and happy inside"
Lee hopped down and thought as they were trying to pin each other
"He smiles and I get dizzy and stary eyed"
Together they thought as they pinned each other rolling down a hill
"all these feelings I have keep my asking could this be love"
They looked at each other as they rolled into a field and they were in awe at each other thinking
"Its amazing I can hardly breathe whenever he/she says hi"
And then as if they were in a trance, they both leaned in and whispered as they sang
"I never knew that I could feel, I never dreamed that I could feel. I didn't know that I could feel this….way"
Their lips were only inches away and gently they pressed their lips together, kissing each other. They kissed for a good bit of minutes as the sun rose high into the sky. They parted and looked at each other and smiled a bit. "Now what were you doing in the forest" asked lee touching his cheek. Pinocchio smiled and said, "You'll know soon enough" and he pulled her in for another kissing moment, melting in to each other. Lee savored each moment and then headed back to the camp hand in hand.
