Well, here we go again! Chapter 3!
I obviously don't own Toy Story or "A journey to the center of the Earth".
Jessie shut the water faucet off before inspecting her teeth in the mirror. After dinner, the couple completed painting the room and decided to watch a little TV until it got late. She gave one final inspection of her clothes (one of Buzz's baggy T-shirts and pajama shorts) and her braided hair before opening their master bathroom door. She hopped onto the bed where the peaceful space ranger laid, reading "A journey to the center of the Earth" by Jules Verne.
"Hey, Smexy!" She joked referring his shirtless form. He just smiled at her, eyes still glued onto the pages. "Whatcha doin, Cap?"
"Erm, Hi… Just reading…" He smiled at her before noticing her hair. He swiftly put his book down before undoing her braid. "Hey! What are you doing?"
"I like seeing you with your hair down… it lets me know that you're comfortable." She blushed. "Shuddap…" He chuckled before motioning for her to cuddle with him. She willingly accepted and planted her cheek against his side. There they lay a few moments more only enjoying each other's company until she picked up the book from his lap. "Read to me."
"I'm not sure you're going to like this book. It's a little hard to understand and... Not that I'm calling you dumb or anything, you are a smart woman and you're not ugly either or anything—"Jessie interrupted him by lightly hitting the top of his with the book.
"Then bore me to sleep!" She giggled. Buzz gave her a gentle, loving smile before opening to the page he was on before. "At some places the flanks of the mountain formed an angle with the horizon of at least 36 degrees…"
"Leaning over the edge of our narrow standing ground, I observed that the bottom of the hole was still invisible…" Buzz looked over to his side at the peaceful cowgirl deep into her slumber and felt it was time to join her. He carefully rolled Jessie over onto her side. He placed his book on the bookshelf across the room before switching off the lights. He made his way into the bed and under the covers. The final step, he wrapped his arms around his wife and began to drift away until… all of a sudden, he felt as if someone was shining a flashlight into his eyes. He groaned and sat up. On literally every power outlet in the room, there was a nightlight. He can only assume this was Jessie's doing due to her intense fear of the dark and tight spaces and he couldn't blame her for it either.
When she was a little girl, her and her older brother, Woody, were playing on their parents' ranch property (which was very big and easy to get lost in). She ended up wandering too far and fell down an abandoned, dried up well. She tried calling for help but nobody could hear her and the fall injured her leg, so she could not do anything but wait for someone to rescue her. It took police about a day and a half to find her and she had to wear a cast on her leg for a while but this had also caused her to become claustrophobic and nyctophobic.
Well… He thought. It wouldn't kill her if we were to take one of the nightlights off. Buzz got up and removed the nightlight closest to him. Ah! Much better! He settled himself back in bed. He let out one deep sigh before relaxing his muscles. When he was just on the verge of dreaming, he felt the bed shift and heard a gasp. He squinted as the feminine figure squat down in front of the wall and he soon felt that light shining in his eyes again. This was going to be a very long night!
Jessie placed her pillow over her ears tightly, trying to ignore the snoring noise coming from the other side of the bed. His snoring was not loud enough to make the walls vibrate but it sure can wake a light sleeper such as herself. She turned over to her side and attempted to close his mouth that was slightly ajar. Finally, nice and quiet! She rolled over again and shut her eyes until…there! She cringed as the snoring began again. That is it! She turned over once again and nudged him slightly. "Buzz! Hey, Buzz!" she hissed.
Immediately, the snoring stopped and he turned his head to look over his shoulder. "Hmmm?" He mumbled drowsily.
His eyes opened wider in alarm. "Oh…I'm sorry. I can go sleep on the couch if you want me to…"
"No! No! It's okay just, can you try to be quieter or something?"
"Well, snoring is snoring. It's not something you can get rid of overnight."
"I really don't mind spending the night on the couch…"
"No! It's just something I guess I have to get used to."
"Here" He pulled the comforter over her so that only her head was peeking out. "I'll stay up until you fall asleep." She let out a shy smirk before leaning over and pecking him on the lips as a silent thank you. She felt her eyelids get heavier as she became to drift back into her Dream world.
Buzz was awoken by a strong kick in his stomach. He looked up from where he barely laid on the edge of the bed. His wife sprawled out over the bed, like a giant "X" with her. Oh! You've got to be kidding me! He sat up and moved two of her limbs over to her side of the bed. There, now nothing else had better not disturb him again! A few moments later, he felt the bed shift again as Jessie changed her sleeping position once again so that she was lying diagonally across the bed with her face tucked in the crook of his neck. Buzz tried to move as much of her hair away from his face but it somehow found its way back to his face. Ok, this isn't working… He slowly reached for one of the pillows from her original side and used it as his decoy so he can escape from the red, frizzy mess that was her hair. After gently placing her head and wrapping her arms around the pillow, he was finally free! He went to the other side of the bed, pulled both of her legs over to her new spot on the bed and gave one more shot at getting the rest he deserved. That was until, the bed shifted again and the mop of redness came flying back into his face…
Jessie was the first to awaken that early Saturday morning. She yawned, stretched, and looked at the clock, which read 11:36 AM. Okay, so maybe it wasn't early… she looked around the room to notice her "hubby" was nowhere in sight! Her eyebrows furrowed and as she was about to set her foot on the ground below the bed, she felt something weird underneath her foot. It jumped and Buzz immediately sat up. "I'm up!"
Jessie laughed. "What were ya doing, Cap?"
"Sleeping…How did I even get here?" Jessie just kept laughing as he let out a sheepish smile. She got off the bed, pulling the comforter with her and joined him on the floor below. She curled up against his chest as he placed his forehead against hers. "You, little lady…You did not let me sleep last night!"
"Neither did you!" She poked him in the stomach.
"Oh yeah? How many times did I wake you up?"
"Three times. I win." He proclaimed with great pride. "So you know what that means?" He purred.
"No…" She said lowly. He chuckled. "Well, then I'll tell you."
He flipped her over onto her back before positioning himself on top of her. "That means that…"
He placed a soft kiss her forehead. "I…" She bit her lip as he lifted her chin up. "Get…" He placed another chaste kiss on the curve of her neck before speaking again. "The bed all to myself, tonight!" Buzz immediately jumped up onto the bed, leaving a poor confused little cowgirl.
"Hey! Wait a minute!"
I have a feeling that this is going to be one of those chapters that as soon as it is posted, I will never be able to reread ever again due to shame. Anyways, review and fave, or suggest (follow if you are reading this from ff) or don't review, suggest or fave, I don't know, the choice is yours! Is that too much pressure? Yes? Okay so do whatever you want, ANNIE OUT!
