Until then, enjoy!!
It was an early summer one late afternoon in the village where the Smurfs lived. During that time, some of them worked on their daily chores while some had finished for the day and went to go play and goof off someplace else. And while some of the Smurfs stayed behind to do their work, one of them, Handy Smurf had been fixing up on someone’s smurfhouse that had a hole on the roof. As the Smurf worked, not too far from where he nailed some more planks, Hefty Smurf, his closest and best friend was heading off as he passed by him.
The Smurf in the visor and navy blue overalls after hammering more nails sat up straight and wiped his forehead. “Phew...!” He later looked down and saw Hefty passing by and waved at him. “Hey, Hefty!”
As soon his name was heard, Hefty turned and saw Handy after walking by him on the roof top. “Yo, Handy!!” he called waving to him. “How's it smurfin'?”
“So far so good,” chuckled Handy. “Just need to smurf some more nails and it's all done.”
“Looks like you've been workin' the whole day away buddy!” the strong Smurf exclaimed. “Do ya need a smurfing hand before I head off?”
“Nah, it's ok. After this I'm gonna check on the windmill if it needs to be screwed more.”
“I can smurf you a hand on the windmill if you like.” the Smurf with the red heart tattoos on his arms offered.
“Hehe, well if you insist.”
“Anything for a friend!” smiled Hefty.
Handy smiled back in return and soon got down from the roof after nailing the last few nails. “Well, to the windmill!” he chuckled.
Hefty then followed his friend to the windmill. On their way, he asked, “So, is there anything you'll be doin' once you're done with your work?”
“Mmm... after this... no, I don't think so.” replied Handy. “Just go back to the shop, I guess.”
Seeing that his friend had been working an awful lot lately for everyone in the village, Hefty thought maybe he could use a well-deserved break after everything he’s done. “Well, if you're not doin' anything after, you wanna smurf over with me to the beach?”
“That sounds like a smurfy idea, Hefty! Sure!” Handy replied happily.
“Great! Let's smurf the windmill quick and get goin'!”
Both Smurfs then arrived over to the windmill as they looked up and saw that one of the fan pieces was a little lose. “Hm, there's a piece loose.” Handy said, looking to it. “Just a little tightening and it'll be as good as new.” Then he took out one of the screwdrivers from his kit he had with him while Hefty held onto the piece so it would stay in place and Handy began to screw it in.
“Looks like everything else seems to be smurfing fine. Good thing there's you, hehe.” Hefty smiled to him.
Handy smirked at his comment while he continued screwing the fan. “Somesmurf's gotta get the job done.”
“And along with some elbow grease to get it done quicker!” the muscled Smurf said and flexed one arm.
Handy couldn’t help but laugh a bit and turned to him. “And you're the Smurf for the job!”
“So I am hehehe!” Hefty chuckled as he flexed his arm more, showing his greatest strength.
The handyman Smurf turned back to screwing but then felt butterflies in his stomach and thought to himself, “...Wow...” He was truly amazed by his friend’s physique deep down and did find him very attractive. Hefty had defined muscle tone no Smurf has ever dared to attempt to keep up with. Yes, there are some Smurfs like Tuffy and Weakling, but compared to them, Hefty was much bigger. And most Smurfs envied him for being the strongest Smurf in the entire Smurf realm.
Even though Handy did find Hefty very handsome in some ways, he still considered him as his best friend though thick and thin. He was also more like a brother to him for always being there whenever help was needed.
“Anyhow, you wouldn't believe what went on earlier when Brainy got in the way as usual.” Hefty soon spoke.
“Oh?” Handy turned back to him curiously. “What happened?”
“Well, Painter was smurfing one of his paintings he's been working on for a while for Vanity, and Brainy goes to him and wouldn't you know, he criticizes how tasteless it was.” Hefty continued, “And boy, was Painter furious! And before Brainy had his back turned, the guy just dumps a whole can of paint onto him! And now Brainy is as brown as... well you know.”
“Seriously?!” Handy laughed out loud. “Now that's something I have to smurf! Surprises me I didn’t even hear all that!”
“Hehe! Nosey Smurf smurfed in on it earlier and passed it around to a few others.”
“Oh that Nosey,” the mechanic laughed a bit more. “Is he still brown?”
“And still trying to wash it off!” Hefty exclaimed. “He's been at it for hours smurfing all that paint!”
“That won't come off in at least a few days, haha!”
“At least we can all have a good laugh about it!” Hefty laughed heartedly.
“Absosmurfly!” Handy chuckled and soon finished screwing the fan. “Well that about does it!”
“That's great! Let's get goin' before Brainy comes around!”
“If you put it that way then let's smurf outta here!”
“Hey, I'll race ya over there!”
“Really now?” Handy smirked at him. “Then... THINK FAST!” Handy had dashed off before Hefty right out of the village.
“Hey! No fair! I wasn't ready!” Hefty cried as he began to run after him as they both ran off into the forest.
A little while later as Handy ran, he saw Hefty from behind catching up starting to run faster. “Looks like you're getting rusty, bud!”
“Rusty?! I'll show ya rusty!!” Hefty ran even faster, managing to meet up alongside him.
“Whoa!” Handy cried seeing how great his friend’s agility was.
“Heh! Not so bad, am I?” Hefty said giving him a sneer.
“We’ll see about that!”
Suddenly, Handy glomped him as they both rolled all the way down to the shore in the warm sand against their skin. And as they fell to a halt, Hefty gave out a laugh while he was on top of Handy before he rolled himself off and sat up.
Handy laughed along and sat up with him. “That was fun!”
“Yeah, it was!” And without noticing, the muscular Smurf grabbed Handy and gave him a noogie on the head. “...But not as fun as this!!”
“Hey! Ow! Hahaha! Stop it!” Handy screamed and laughed out loud from the hard noogies he was given.
“Hehe! Ah, I love ya Handy! You're the smurfiest friend a Smurf could ask for!”
“Hahaha! So are you, big guy!”
Hefty began to chuckle as he later brought him to a big bear hug with Handy returning it and smiled at him. The big Smurf hugged him a little longer until his eyes caught something from the ocean not too far from him and couldn’t help but wonder it was someone they knew. “Hey, Handy?”
“When was the last time you ever saw your sweetheart?”
Soon Handy’s smile faded slowly and sighed. “It's... it's been a while. Like a month or 2, I dunno.”
“Well, isn't that her over there?”
“What?” Handy said after lifting his head up quickly and then turned to the ocean. “Marina...?!”
“Yeah, I think it is her, smurfing on that rock!” Hefty pointed to where he saw her.
In an instant, Handy got up quickly and made his way over to the rock where Marina was seen sitting as she looked to the other direction while stroking her long, purple hair with her hands. The moving waters gently splashed up against the big rock while Handy headed her way and slowly approached her.
