It was a radiant day on the Island of Sodor. James & I were steaming along the track. We've been best friends ever since we met. We always worked together; always coupling flatbeds & freight cars, always delivering them, & always have a good time.
But James isn't just an engine. He also is a human. So is every engine. They just have wrist electronics that can transform them human to engine or engine to human.
All of the times we were working together, James developed a crush on me. Here's how the story began: James was at his house sleeping. The rays of the sun woke him up. He got ready, & then, he went outside. He pressed the button on his electronic & then turned into an engine.
"Time to get Taylor," said James. He then puffed over to my house. He whistled. I heard it & opened the door. "Hi, James!" I said with a smile. "Hello, Taylor," said James.
I climbed aboard James. He then steamed along to the quarry. "Oh...I'm so in love with Taylor...how should I tell her? I hope she won't be upset when I tell her," James thought. I blushed, too as I was in love with James.
"Oh, James," I thought. "I wish I could tell him, but how?" I then thought..."I just need to be calm, cool, & collected..." Moments later, we arrived at the quarry. "Alright, let's get to work," I said. Then, Louise & Emily came in. "Hello," they both said.
"Hi," I said. "Hello," said James. "James, I gotta bring over the supply cart so we can load your freight cars. BRB," I said. "Alright, be careful," James said.
Emily looked closely at James face, & his face was a beautiful shade of red. "James, are you in love with Taylor?" asked Emily. James blushed deeper, not knowing what to say.
Until 10 seconds later, he spoke. "Y-yes," he said softly. "I do. But please don't tell anyone!" Emily & Louise gasped. "Aww...this is so cute," Louise cooed in a babyish voice. "James & Taylor, sitting on a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G," teased Emily. "Shut up..." said James.
The 2 female engines giggled. "Oh, James, we're just kidding; chill out, dude," said Emily. "Yeah, yeah, whatever," said James. Then, I came back with the supply cart. "Alright, James. I'm back," I said. "Taylor!" shouted a female voice. It was Valarie who came running over to where I was.
"Oh, hi, Valarie!" I said, happily. "Hey, Taylor. Hey, James. Hey Louise & Emily," said Valarie. "Hi," the engines said. "May I help you with that, T?" Valarie offered politely. "Sure, thanks!" I said. Then, Valarie & I unloaded the supply cart. Later we finished unloading the supply cart. "Thanks, Valarie. You're a good gal," I said.
Valarie giggled. "Thanks, Taylor. Gotta go. I have to get Maxine's cars filled. Bye!" said Valarie as she ran away. "Bye! See ya later," I said.
"See ya, Emily & Louise!" Then James puffed away. "Should we just tell Thomas, Rosie, Percy, Gordon, & Henry?" asked Louise. "Well, we're all friends...I'm sure James will understand," said Emily.
Then, the 2 engines puffed away. Later, they found the other engines. "Guys, guys! We have to tell you something!" said Emily. "What is it?" said Thomas.
Emily whispered to Thomas, Percy, Rosie, Gordon, Henry: "James is in love with Taylor." Everyone gasped. "Really?" asked Rosie. "Yeah, he told us," said Louise.
"Ha, I knew it," said Gordon. "No you didn't," said Henry. "Yes, I did...I knew it from the beginning," said Gordon. "Right," Percy said sarcastically.
Gordon scoffed. "I can't believe that James likes Taylor," said Thomas. "Yeah," said Emily. Then they saw James coming. Louise gasped. "Everyone, play cool," said Louise.
James steamed in. "Oh, uh, hello, James," said Thomas. "Hello, Thomas," said James. "Hello, guys," I said. "Hi," everyone else said. "Why is everyone looking at us strangely?" I asked.
"Umm...James, we're sorry, but we told Thomas, Percy, Rosie, Gordon, & Henry," said Emily. "Emily! Louise!" said James. "Aww, c'mon. We're all friends here, right?" said Louise. "Tell you what?" I asked. "Oh...uh...n-nothing!" James stammered.
"Are you sure? Because you've been acting strangely lately," I said. "Oh...me? No, I-I'm fine!" James said. "Taylor, there's something James wanted to tell you," said Emily.
"Really, what?" I asked curiously. "Uhh..." James was speechless. He blushed as red as a strawberry. "Taylor, c-could we talk into someplace more private?" James asked nervously.
"Oh...okay," I said. "I'll see you later," said James. Then, James puffed to Tidmouth Sheds. He activated himself back into a human.
"What did you want to tell me, James?" I asked. James blushed, inhaled & exhaled sharply. "Taylor, you & I have been best friends for a while, right? And also...as we worked together, I developed a crush on..." James stopped at his sentence.
"Who?" I asked. He waited 10 seconds then took another deep breath. "Y-you," he said. I froze, & blushed. "M-me?" I asked. "Yes..." James said.
"Oh, James," I said. "I-I'm in love with you, too." I then hugged James. James blushed deeply this time. He then hugged back.
Then, we both seperated. I then got up on tip-toes since James was a bit taller than me, & gave him a quick, but soft little kiss.
"T-thanks, Taylor," said James. "I-I guess we're more than best friends, right?" James asked. I giggled, & nodded my head 'yes'.
"Yes, James. More than best friends," I said. We both giggled. "Come on, we should get back to work," said James. "Right," he said. James pressed his transformation button & transformed into an engine. "Climb aboard, Taylor," said James. "Thanks, James," I said. Then, we went to the quarry, going back to work.
