Chapter 11—Lady’s Lament
The four parents took off through the park and continued to 검색 for their puppies. Pongo and Perdita scanned the area, but couldn’t find any 강아지 whatsoever. “I don’t know where they could be,” Perdita stated worriedly. “Oh, if only I knew…”
“Ah, that’s okay Perdy,” Tramp stated consolingly. “Why don’t we… look for them together?”
Lady looked back, alarmed. “Tramp…” she stated, worriedly.
“Oh, Pidge,” Tramp stated, confusedly. “What’s wrong? I only want to walk with Perdy alone…”
“You know what’s wrong! We’ve been through this!” Lady cried out. “First Trixie…then Lulu… then Fifi… then Rosita Chiquita… then Peg… now me!”
At once, Lady glared at Tramp, and quickly took off.
“Pidge, come back!” Tramp cried. But Lady tore off from the others, disappearing from sight. She cried her way, and didn’t look at anyone as she disappeared behind many people, garbage cans, and trees.
“We can’t find her in this mess,” Pongo stated.
“Perdy, would 당신 mind looking 의해 yourself for a bit?” Pongo asked. “I want to have a chat with Tramp... a guy thing, if you’d understand.”
Perdita nodded, and went off before Pongo asked, “So… what was Lady talking about?”
“Well, okay, I’ll tell you. I have had a bad romantic past, dumping girlfriends. But she should know that I wouldn’t dump her… I mean, we had puppies!” Tramp cried. “Women… I just don’t understand them.”
“So… 당신 were a cad?” Pongo asked, surprised.
“Yeah, yeah… but not anymore,” he answered.
“So Scamp and 앤젤 must have ran off because they thought 당신 were not telling the truth… and Lady must have done the same…” Pongo told him.
“You know, that must be right,” Tramp told Pongo.
“So maybe 당신 should do something to make Lady feel better…” Pongo told Tramp.
He cleared his throat insisted to Tramp “Look, if 당신 really have feelings for her, 당신 have to go and get her back. Get going!”
Tramp hurried through the massive amount of garbage cans and trees, but then he saw a poodle with a cocky grin and a 담홍색, 핑크 bow in her hair walking 의해 herself. “Miss… have 당신 seen a small…”
“What? Am I supposed to be a servant to mongrels?” she stated nastily. “For your information, I am Georgette, a show poodle earning ribbon after ribbon. I will blow all the competition away at this little place.”
“Okay, okay,” Tramp told her, smiling confidently. “I just wanted to know if you’ve seen a cocker 발바리, 발 바리 with a blue collar.”
“Get away!” Georgette squealed, as Tramp took off in the other direction.
Tramp then proceeded to find a fiery 치와와 with a headband. “Hey, have 당신 seen a…”
“Back off! Don’t look down on me…” he delivered in a strong Mexican accent.
“Calm down, calm down,” Tramp told him. “I just wanted to know where a cocker with…”
“Oh her, her,” the 치와와 answered. “She’s gone somewhere over there,” he answered, indicating across a bridge.
Tramp seized a sudden idea. “Thanks, mister.”
“The name’s Ignacio Alonzo…!” the 치와와 began to say, but Tramp was not listening. He charged over the bridge. “Pidge! PIdge!” Tramp cried out.
And then, he finally heard a voice, saying, “Come to play with my 심장 again?” in a soft, sensitive cry.
Tramp peered through some trees, and saw Lady sadly huddled near a tree, looking at the ground glumly. “Aww Pidge… 당신 don’t understand… “
“I understand a lot better than 당신 might think!” Lady told Tramp firmly. “I know of your past… I know what 당신 did to Peg, and I don’t blame 앤젤 a bit for running away. I thought 당신 were over it.”
“But Pidge, I…” Tramp continued.
“I saw 당신 talking with that girl back there,” Lady told Tramp. “That show poodle… she must look really pretty, doesn’t she?”
“Well yeah,” Tramp explained, but after seeing the look on Lady’s face, he added, “Well, she does… but I’m not interested in her… Not with her 또는 Perdy…”
“I… I…” Lady paused, before saying, “What do 당신 have to say for yourself?”
“Oh come on Pidge, I wasn’t flirting,” Tramp stated shortly.
“I don’t believe you,” Lady whispered softly to Tramp. “Why should I? 당신 have played with everyone else’s heart. I don’t want 당신 to play with mine anymore, either.”
“Oh Pidge, of course I’m serious with you!” Tramp stated quickly. “If I wasn’t, why would I be out to help find our children?”
Lady didn’t say anything for a bit, but looked into Tramp’s eyes and told him, “You only want to get out. I should have seen this all along. 당신 don’t care about me at all. All 당신 care about is your old life. Why don’t 당신 just 가입하기 up with Buster and then the two of 당신 can have fun hurting as many others as 당신 can…”
“ Pidge, 당신 know I’m not like that,” Tramp told Lady. “You know I wouldn’t do that.”
“What do I really know about you?” Lady asked Tramp. “I don’t know that much, do I? How am I supposed to know what 당신 would 또는 would not do?”
“Well Pidge, maybe you’ll have to see for yourself,” Tramp told her. “But we should probably return to searching for our puppies. Aren’t 당신 out to help find them?”
Lady blinked a couple of times, before saying slowly, looking at the ground, “You’re right… that is why I am out. Well, for Scamp and Angel’s sake, I will come back with you… you’re right, I suppose I should have been searching for my children. And the quicker we find them, the quicker I can return 집 with them to Jim Dear and Darling. But don’t think that I’m done keeping my eye out on you,” Lady suspiciously told Tramp.
Tramp smiled at Lady in a small little way, and then stated, “Come on Pidge… follow me. Pongo and Perdita are over there somewhere, and then we’ll all 가입하기 up and find them together.”
Lady nodded, and she decided to follow Tramp, leaving the puddle of her tears behind her. While still not completely trusting Tramp, Lady felt a sense of fulfillment that at least she was taking action to find her kids once again.
