D is for Dog If she hadn't understood, at least she'd cared. That's what Schroeder thought when Lucy brought him a cupcake for Beethoven's birthday. And at that moment, he forgot for a minute that Beethoven was a bachelor. He forgot his vow to live his life in the footsteps of his hero. All he could think about was how happy she was to have made him smile, and how seeing her like this was beginning to make he heart beat faster, louder... He wanted to kiss her. And he did. On the cheek. It was warm.*** Lucy wasn't stupid. She'd been duped into thinking he'd kissed her before. It never even crossed her mind anymore that Schroeder might actually kiss her. And she wasn't surprised when she glanced to the right & saw Snoopy standing there, because that was the way it always happened. But that didn't make it any less disgusting. So she ran away yelling something about hot water & iodine.***"Lucy, Lucy wait!"
