Sorry it's been forever! But here it is! The epilogue. Writing this story with disneyfureak123 has been amazing and hopefully we will have more joint stories in the future!
"C'mon Woody!" Buzz exclaimed as he stood on the ledge of a window at Andy's house, "Hurry up!"
"You reckon we were a lil' too fast for him?" Jessie questioned with a smirk.
"He's never been the most athletic," Buzz teased.
"Yeah, I see that…"
"I heard that!" Woody panted as he climbed up the window edge. "OK, you guys, see that gate over there?" The three toys turned their heads and leaned forward to look at an azure picket fence. "We're gonna have to get to it. Now my plan is to-" Before he could finish his sentence, he saw the cowgirl swinging on an ivy vine on the side of the house and held onto the fence when she reached to it.
"Was this you're plan, Woody?" she asked, throwing the ivy to her brother.
"Uh, yeah," he meekly answered, rubbing his neck. "And Buzz."
"Close your wings. It's getting old."
The three figures plopped onto the numerous green blades of grass beneath them. Immediately, they got a strident cheer from the toys who have been anxiously waiting for their rescuing friends.
"Oh thank goodness you're all back!" screeched Mrs. Potatohead, pulling them all down for a group hug.
"Wait to go Buzzy Boy! You too cowboy!" Hamm called out.
After many congratulations and hugs, Jessie pulled Woody aside hastily.
"Jessie? What's going-"
"Listen Woody," Jessie mumbled, tugging her braid, "I just wanted to say I'm sorry. I acted like a jerk. I should've listened to you." Woody stood there in stillness, searching in her eyes. They looked so sad.
"Hey, it's alright," he said, wrapping his arm around her, "I acted like a jerk, too. I knew that you wanted to explore the house. It should've been my responsibility to show you around the house. Don't be so hard on yourself."
She smiled at him. "Thanks, Woody."
"No problem, Jess." His attention then turned to the space ranger who was pacing back and forth in the distance. "I think there's somebody else you need to thank," he added, nodding his head towards Buzz.
"Hey Buzz!" she pronounced, running towards him.
"Oh h-hey- I mean- howdy Jessie," he stammered.
"Howdy space ranger," she greeted back. "I'm very grateful for the fact that you came by to save me."
He cleared his throat nervously. "Oh, uh, it was nothing, miss. We toys need to stick together."
"OK, mister," she mocked, bringing her hands to her hips, "But it wasn't nothing, it was very heroic. You really are the sweetest space toy around."
"I appreciate your-" Before finishing his sentence, she gave him a quick embrace, leaving him in silence as she pulled away. Wordlessly, she turned around and walked towards the rest of the toys.
"That's how you do it…" Jessie told herself with an amused grin. She preferred to take the stuttering Buzz over the neurotic Buzz any day.
