As he leaned against the car apple in hand he couldn't help but notice how good she looked while she talked to her friends.
Shaking his head he thought to himself "Why bother."
For he was just Grumpy, too grumpy and miserable for anyone to like, even her. No way she liked him because, even with her speed, couldn't seem to get away from him fast enough.
Throwing out his apple, he hopped in his car and drove as fast as he dare.
Unknown to Swift heart her secret admirer had just driven off, she continued to talk to Cheer and Harmony "So you guy's excited about the dance this weekend?"
Cheer smiled and said "Oh yeah, totally Champ and I are gonna dance till our feet fall off."
And Cheer did a little dance that made Swift heart laugh as she asked "How about you Harmony?"
Shaking her head Harmony just said "Nah it's gonna be boring without going with someone."
Cheer bear shook her head and said "Oh come on Harmony don't be a downer, there has got to be someone who will ask you."
Raising an eyebrow and crossing her arms she asked "Oh yeah then who?"
Swift heart lowered her head deep in thought with a "Hmmmm." going through all the bears and cousins in the family trying to find the perfect match for Harmony.
Cheer just rolled her eyes "How about Good Luck?"
Shaking her head Harmony just said "No, he's dating Polite from the valley."
Snapping her fingers Swift heart said "I got it, how about Tenderheart."
Thinking about it Harmony just said "Maybe, but he has to ask me remember."
Cheer spoke up first "Well, then give the man a hint girl."
Swift heart was about to say something, but was cut off with the sound of mischievous laughter. "Well sounds like Hugs and Tugs are up to something."
Cheer walked forward determinedly "I'll go see what they are up to."
Unknown to them Hugs and Tugs had planned a prank that, by their standards, would go down in Care Bear history. "What are we doing Tugs?" The little pink bear asked
Tugs looked at her and said "Simple Hugs, we are gonna replace one of the gears on Bright heart's new invention." The little blue bear responded a little grin on his face.
Still a little puzzled Hugs then asked "What's a gear Tugs?"
Frowning a little the bear thought how to explain what Bright Heart had showed him to his sister "It's like a circle with pointy triangles around it." He said while crossing his arms triumphantly.
Hugs ran up to him and gave him a hug "Oh Tugs your so smart."
Taken back a bit by her sudden hug Tugs just said "Come on let's go."
Hugs laughed and said "Goodie goodie gosh."
As the two opened the head of Bright Heart's machine and pulled out the gear. Then proceeded to fill it with a bucket of candy, the two giggled as they closed it up just to be surprised to hear Cheers voice "And what are you two up to?"
Tugs hid the bucket before standing beside his sister and saying together in unison "Nothing."
Not convinced Cheer raised an eyebrow "Are you two lying to me?"
"No we're not." Tugs said before Hugs for fear she would spill the beans.
As Cheer was about to ask again she heard Bright Heart coming "Ah Bright heart just who I wanted to see did you teach Hugs and Tugs any new trick they would want to try on us?"
Now just noticing the two cubs standing side by side he said "Nothing that I can recall."
Thinking a little he said "However I did show Tugs the gears on my newest invention."
He then looked at Tugs who's head sank lower.
"Hmm how interesting." Cheer said sarcastically looking at the cubs again.
"We didn't do anything." Hugs said sounding like she was on the verge of tears.
Raising an eyebrow Bright Heart walked over to his machine and opening it up pulling out a handful of candy then spotted the bucket and picked it up for extra proof walking back to Cheer and holding them up and asked sarcastically "Oh really?"
Hugs and Tugs looked at each other then at the ground.
Cheer's instinct kicked in and she whispered some thing into Bright heart's ear. "Oh fine, you two are off the hook." Bright Heart said rolling his eyes
They asked trying to be certain. "Really?"
Nodding Bright Heart was suddenly tackled by two cubs who were very happy "Thank you thank you thank you." Was all they could seem to say.
Getting up Bright Heart playfully shoved them away "Now get out of here you two." He said smirking.
