Lee is at the bottom of the trellis looking up at Amanda's window. He
starts to climb up to her window.
"Amanda!" Lee says as he taps on her window.
Amanda is half asleep picks up the phone thinking it was a phone call
then she hears Lee again when he calls her name again.
"What?" Amanda asks.
"It's Lee. Let me in." whispers Lee.
She gets out of bed and goes to the window and helps Lee to climb
into the bedroom.
"Lee, what are you doing here?" Amanda asks as she gets back under
"I came to see how everything went tonight." Lee is looking at her
and thinking "Even bedraggled she is beautiful."
"Everything went fine. It was textbook." Amanda smiles as she
remembers the kiss. "He just talked about his work and his travels."
Amanda says and realizes to herself that Lee was actually in her
" Well, you are not to have anything more to do with him. We'll take
over now." Lee says.
"Now hold on a minute. I'm doing a good job." Amanda comments.
In addition, Lee for the next few minutes argues with Amanda about staying off
the case, but they finally agree that if they get anything more on
the case that Amanda would get into her car and drive away. In addition, they
shake hands on this. At this time, Lee is sitting on the bed right beside
Amanda. The minute their hands touch there was an electricity that
went through both of them and they look into each others eyes and
have trouble looking away.
"Amanda, I would have thought your mother and the boys would have
been awake by now with all the noise we have just made." Lee
continues holding her hand and watching her.
"They are not here. Philip and Jamie went with the science club to
the science fair that is being held at Disneyland this week. Mother
went with them." Amanda smiles.
"Oh, really." Lee moves a little closer to Amanda and puts out his
other hand to trace her face.
Amanda closes her eyes and grips his other hand tighter. Lee watches
Amanda as her eyes close and her lips part slightly.
"Amanda?" Lee asks softly.
He leans toward her and brushes his lips across hers ever so gently.
He thinks to himself, "What are we waiting for?" Then he wraps his
arms around her as her hands slowly move up his chest. The kiss that
followed knocked the wind out of both of them for several minutes.
They both pull away and Amanda puts her cheek on Lee's shoulder.
Amanda is thinking, "It has actually happened. Lee kissed me."
Lee slowly puts his hand under her chin and lifts her face up so he
can kiss her again.
As Lee pulls away he says in a hoarse voice "Amanda, I'd better go."
He is watching her, and realizes he really did not want to go.
He lets Amanda go reluctantly and stands up and watches as Amanda
gets out of bed.
"I think I'll make my way down to the back door instead of climbing
back down the trellis." he says.
"Okay, I'll walk you down." Amanda smiles and thinks, "I wonder what
he is thinking? I think we both need to do some thinking before we go
Lee takes Amanda's hand and they walk downstairs together.
"I guess I'll see you at breakfast." Lee asks. He slowly pulls Amanda
towards him and kisses her one last time for the night. "Remember
your promise that you will get in your car and drive away if we get
any more information."
"I will remember, Lee. Goodnight." she smiles at him and kisses him
real quick on his lips.
Lee goes out the door and walks to his car. He sits there for about
10 to 15 minutes trying to calm himself down. He thinks, "If it is not
now it will be someday soon, Amanda King."
Amanda is leaning against the door and thinks to herself as a smile
grows on her face, "One day Lee, you will not get away so easily."
She turns out the downstairs lights and goes upstairs to bed and
dreams of what is to come.
