Later that day, Shenzi was sitting by the river. She threw a pebble in the water, thinking about what's happened throughout the two days, and huffed. Then Timon sat next to her.
"Oh, hey Tim." Shenzi replied, then looked back at her reflection, thankful that besides her size, she didn't change a bit. She was still her normal self, sort of. She threw another pebble in the river, making it skip across. Then she burst into fits of giggles.
"What's so funny?" Timon asked.
"Remember when you 'proposed' to me?" Shenzi asked in a giggly voice.
"Oh yeah, I remember!" Timon said, laughing along.
"Didja see the look on Pumbaa's face?"
"Didja see the look on your face?" Timon asked, laughing harder. "You were like this!" He mimicked the look on the hyena's face from that memorable moment, and Shenzi laughed even harder. "You know, when you're not trying to eat us, you're not so bad," he said. Shenzi stopped laughing and looked back at him, surprised.
"Really? You think so?" She asked.
"Yeah," said Timon, "In fact, you're kinda sweet" he added, smiling. Shenzi stared at him dumbly, although she was flattered, but wasn't sure if she heard him right.
"Whoa, whoa wait, let's just recap." Shenzi said in shock. "I've smacked you off a rock, scared the living daylights out of you and your clan, let my friend almost massacre your uncle, and almost murdered your family and friends! And now you think I'm sweet?" She finished. The meerkat smiled, finding her confusion adorable. "How could you think I'm..." She started, but was interrupted when Timon placed his right hand on her cheek, making her face turn slightly red. "How could you think I'm sweet after I did all that stuff?" She said more quietly as she reached up and put her paw on his hand. The redhead shrugged a little.
"Let's just say I've learned to forgive people," He said as he stroked her cheek with his thumb, mentally setting her cheeks on fire with how much she was blushing from the display of affection.
"Um, O-OK..." The flustered hyena stuttered out. She was honestly surprised that his hand wasn't burning to soots from the fire on her cheeks.
Without saying a word, the two started leaning towards one another. Then Shenzi's lips touched Timon's as she felt her cheeks heat up even more, if that was even possible. Max happened to be looking for Timon, when he saw him and Shenzi during their kiss. So Max just walked away with a shocked expression. When he got back to Timon's mom, she grabbed his shoulders and shook him.
"Hey! You OK, Max? What's wrong with you?" She asked as she waved her hand in front of his eyes. Then she slapped his face, making him snap out of it. "What's Timon up to?!"
"Trust me," Max said wearily, "You don't want to know." But Timon's mom just rolled her eyes and went to where Timon and Shenzi were, just as their passionate kiss ended. Then Timon's Mom came back to Max with a shocked expression as well. "I warned ya," Max said bluntly to her.
"I cannot believe it. My little Timmy is in love!" She gushed, and Max rolled his eyes.
Meanwhile, two female meerkats named Meredith and Candace were wandering out, chatting animatedly. Meredith had a scruff of blonde hair on her head, while Candace was a brunette. Plus Meredith had pink eyes, while Candace had brown. These two particular meerkats are the ones who bullied Shenzi the most out of mere jealousy. The truth was, they both had big crushes on Timon, and they were jealous of the attention he was giving to Shenzi.
Candace suddenly gasped at what she saw right before her eyes: Timon was kissing Shenzi! And it looked like he was enjoying it, same with her.
"What is it?" Meredith asked quietly. The brunette said nothing, but pointed to the happy couple. The blonde gasped, a ray of jealousy taking over. "I think I know what should be done!"
(A/N: Sorry for taking so long! Hope you 'Timzi's like it! XD) (A/N #2: I edited this chapter a bit)
