Buzz and Jessie finally arrive at the open toy community hall where the party is being held. After paying for their tickets and going inside, they walk through the open room where almost every toy is on the dance floor while a few people are chatting over small things near a large table piled high with food.
"Well... this is lively." Buzz commented.
"Agreed." Jessie replied.
"So... You wanna check to see if there's any gummy bears in the dessert booth?"
Jessie smiles widely at this. "Definitely."
They walk over to the food booth to collect their dinner.
After they finished eating, they've been enjoying their date. Right now, Jessie is telling Buzz a joke. "And then the cucumber said, 'with friends like these, who needs anemones!'"
"That is easily the most cheesiest pun I've ever heard you say." Buzz chuckles. "I think Woody might be rubbing off you."
"I think you might be right." Jessie laughed.
As the evening hours went on, Buzz and Jessie are sitting at a table having a great time just chatting away.
"On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate this date?" Buzz asked his cowgirl doll girlfriend playfully.
"Hmmm," Jessie answers as she smiles playfully. "I'd give this a ten. I'm really glad we went out tonight after... you know."
"Yeah, it's nice to just go out and do something fun. And look! We did this even with how busy our lives are right now."
"Yeah. I guess this shows that no matter what, we're in this together through hell and back."
Once they both realize what they said, they start laughing at themselves. What were they thinking? They thought they would forget about each other because of their busy lives? Heck no! It just shows them that even with this crazy lifestyle, they still love each other through and through.
"Alright now!" an announcer announced through the loudspeaker. "It's time for the main event! Our special guest star for tonight, Lion Neeson!"
On stage is a stuffed lion toy with a band of toys behind him.
"This song is for all those who are either searching for romance or have found it." he said.
Soon the band of toys starts playing soft music. Buzz turns to Jessie and holds out his hand to her.
"Would you like to dance, my lady?" he said as tried play off being charming.
Jessie giggles at Buzz's 'charm'. "Why, of course, my good sir! I would love too.
The two toys walk to the middle of the room. Finally, the singer starts singing.
"There's a calm surrender to the rush of day when the heat of a rolling wind can be turned away."
While the spaceman and cowgirl doll dance, their minds couldn't help but remember when they first met.
"An enchanted moment and it sees me through. It's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you."
The memory of how their hearts fluttered at their first meeting made the toys blush.
"And can you feel the love tonight? It is where we are. It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer that we got this far. And can you feel the love tonight? How it's laid to rest? It's enough to make kings and vagabonds. Believe the very best."
"There's a time for everyone if they only learn that the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn. There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors when the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours."
"And can you feel the love tonight? It is where we are. It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer that we got this far. And can you feel the love tonight? How it's laid to rest? It's enough to make kings and vagabonds. Believe the very best. It's enough to make kings and vagabonds. Believe the very best."
Buzz and Jessie enjoy the rest of their date night together. For the conclusion of the dance, the final song that played at the end was "Last Dance" by Donna Summer.
Time passes and now they are back in front of Bonnie's house, just an hour before midnight. They hop out of Cadillac as she turns around to see Buzz again, a wide smile copying his.
"Well, here we are. Home before midnight with just one hour to spare." Buzz said.
"Too true." Jessie giggled, then she smiled sweetly at him. "I really had a fun time tonight, Buzz. Thank you."
Buzz starts blushing. "I really had a fun time tonight too, babe. I'm so glad we got this moment just to ourselves.
Jessie starts to blush as well. "Me too."
The two toys start to slowly lean closer to each other until the lips land on each other in a slow and passionate kiss. They got so lost in the kiss that they didn't even notice their friends watching them in surprise and giddiness from Bonnie's bedroom window.
And that's a wrap! I hope you enjoyed this story! In case you're wondering, the stuffed lion toy called Lion Neeson is a reference to actor Liam Neeson. Also, that song that he sang at the dance is "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" by Elton John. It's to honor the 2019 photorealistic remake of "The Lion King", which I saw last month.
Anyway, leave your reviews and I'll see you in my next story!
