Chapter 2: Skye's Concerns
Zuma and Rocky waited until they could talk with Skye alone. Later on, Skye was hanging out in The Lookout on a bean bag when the two pups walked up to her.
"Hi Skye. How are you?" Rocky asked.
"I'm good. I can't wait for Valentine's Day. It's going to be so sweet! ... I hope," Skye answered before her ears went down.
"Awww Skye. Why the long face?" Zuma asked, not knowing why Skye was upset. Skye whined.
"Well, it's just that ... I was hoping Chase would do something romantic for me on Valentine's Day, but I don't know. I mean, Chase and I are teammates and best friends, but I don't know if he feels the same way as me!" Skye stated.
"What do you mean 'feels the same way'?" Rocky asked, slightly confused. Skye sighed.
"There are times where I feel like I like Chase more then just a friend. I feel like he likes me, but is too embarrassed to admit it. He can be sweet at times, but then he gets all serious! I really like him. I get all giggly and feel like butterflies are inside of me when I have those feelings towards Chase. I really like seeing his soft side because it shows that he cares," Skye explained.
"Awww Skye, I'm sure Chase likes you too. You just need to give him time. Maybe he just gets nervous and serious because he doesn't want to upset you!" Rocky suggested.
"Yeah, I mean we know you want him to open up more, but he wouldn't want to loose you as a friend. And I'm sure you feel the same way too," Zuma added.
"You're right. I do want to still be friends. I just hope he would understand," Skye replied before she hugged them.
"Thank you for listening to me Rocky and Zuma," Skye said while hugging them.
"No problem Skye," the two pups responded before separating from the hug. The two pups then ran out of The Lookout to tell Chase.
"I feel bad for Skye. I hope Chase can cheer her up!" Rocky commented. Zuma nodded in agreement. Soon, the pups saw Chase and went over to him.
"Hey Chase, we got good news!" Rocky said as they approached their friend.
"Yes, what is it?" Chase asked.
"We found out Skye likes you; but she doesn't want to ruin her friendship with you," Zuma replied.
"Awww. Tat's so sweet of her. I totally understand. Well, at least there is hope for me. Maybe I can still get her to like me before Valentine's Day!" Chase said back. He then ran off to think of ideas for how to get Skye to like him.
