Oh Spirits of the Grove of pines, thank you for this great joy!
Please Spirits of the Grove look after Leslie and guide her to heaven...
Yay I won!
In Terabithia Jess and Leslie have a sacred place called the Grove of Pines. They go there and thank the Terabithian Spirits in times of great emotion such as getting PT or winning an imagined battle against invaders. Leslie is good at pretending to be royal and she is also very intelligent in everything does, including school work.
After the shock of Leslie's death wears off, Jess makes a wreath in memory of Leslie and leaves it in the Grove of Pines for the Spirits.
The next day Leslie arrives at Jesse's school. At recess she wants to join the boys while they do races. Most of the boys disagree but Jess lets her and the rest of them give in. To all the boys surprise and annoyance she won and her and Jess eventually do become unlikely friends.
