Aurora watches the dog walk around sniffing the ground with great interest until she realizes that he's coming closer and closer to the window she's looking through! She's what he's smelling!
With a sharp gasp, the girl pushes herself away from the window and presses her back against the side of the ship, hoping to stay downwind from the dog. Her eyes are wide with fright and her heart is beating in her chest. But after a second, she takes a deep breath and then bites her lip nervously as she glances to the side. Eyes still wide and mouth now agape, Aurora slowly leans back toward the window...and comes face to face with Max.
Max, seeing that the source of the smell is a beautiful girl, gets a big grin on his face. As Aurora turns to face him, he begins panting loud and hard, his tongue hanging out of his mouth as he breathes hot breath into Aurora's face. Aurora presses her nose against Max's, still staring at him in wide-eyed, open-mouthed fascination. She's so close to him that Max naturally assumes she wants a kiss. And since he loves her already, smelling that she has a wonderfully spunky personality, he's more than happy to give one to her!
His tongue oozing slobber, Max thrusts his head forward and gives Aurora a friendly lick on the cheek.
Aurora closes her eyes, krinkles her nose and grimaces at the sudden wet sensation on her cheek as Max's big tongue lifts it up. The dog's slobbery tongue sweeps across the girl's cheek and makes a loud "smack!" sound when it's done, drool flying everywhere from it as it retracts back into Max's mouth. Max looks at Aurora and smiles at her fondly, while Aurora lowers her head and looks a little grossed out.
Max backs up a little. Aurora slowly puts her fingers back on the sides of the window and peers back to the deck with an open-mouthed look of astonishment on her face. Slowly realizing that she liked this little encounter, Aurora gets a goofy smile of delight on her face as she rubs her wet cheek.
AURORA: That was delightful!
Glad to hear it, Max bounded back toward her, his salivating tongue flopping out of his mouth and flying straight at the girl's pretty face. Aurora grinned and laughed as she received another slobbery kiss from the excited dog, his tongue pressing against her cheek and slowly rolling it upward.
AURORA: Oh, you're such a friendly dog!
