11 – In The End
The otter and penguin just stayed there. They talked a lot and eventually felt tired. The bird was invited to spend the night and so he did. Nothing special happened other than the two lying in each other's embrace and finally falling asleep together.
The following day back at the HQ, Kowalski, Rico and Private were awake and sitting at the table. Also joining them was Alexander the water monitor. There was a disturbing silence. ˝Does anybody know where Skipper is?˝ asked the lieutenant. ˝I haven't seen him ever since he went over to Marlene's place yesterday,˝ replied the smallest penguin. ˝Yeah, he had some sort of an epiphany after a speech I had and then he stormed out,˝ explained the lizard. ˝So he finally figured it out?˝ asked the smart penguin. ˝Probably,˝ answered Private, shrugging.
Back at the habitat of their northern neighbor, Skipper had already woken up, but he couldn't bring himself to stand up, not with Marlene there in his arms. He watched her sleep and he couldn't help himself but smile. He sighed and then spoke with a whisper. ˝And to think that I've been missing out on this for so long.˝ The otter then began moving around a little. She just woke up, but was yet to find the determination to open her eyes.
She felt something warm holding her and she snuggled deeper into its embrace. ˝You finally awake?˝ the penguin did not receive an answer. ˝You know, I do have a team I need to get to,˝ he tried to slowly stand up, nut the otter held him down. He smirked, ˝I didn't think you were the jealous type… tell you what,˝ he brought his beak down to her ear and whispered. ˝I'll cut the training short today and then I'll be all yours.˝
Marlene slowly opened her eyes. She looked up to the penguin and smiled. ˝Just make sure you don't forget.˝ She gave him a quick kiss on the tip of his beak before he could stand up. Skipper smirked. ˝You know what, what harm can five more minutes do.˝ He pulled the girl into a deep kiss. The two stayed like that as the camera slowly began zooming out and the scene switched back to the HQ.
The four there, were eventually interrupted by the sound of the fishbowl moving and through the hole jumped their leader, with a wide smile on his face. ˝Men,˝ he began, ˝I'm in love. It took me a while to realize my feelings, but here they finally are.˝ Kowalski began with a slow clap which he began speeding up. Nobody joined in on the applause, so he just cleared his throat and stopped. ˝Congratulations captain,˝ said the lizard with an extended hand. Skipper shook it and thanked him.
˝But if memory serves, you did have policy on the dating part. A curfew if I recall, and I believe you weren't back by midnight.˝ The captain let out a short, nervous laugh. The rest of the penguins stood up and came closer. ˝And you know what that means,˝ said Alexander with his signature evil smile.
There you have it. It's as good as any chapter to call the final one. I started it short and I'm ending it short. There's more to come soon. Stay tuned. The dice has been cast and the ice broken.
Skipper, meet my team,˝ began Alexander
˝But what about kids, I don't think that love can cover the fact that we're two different classes of animals,˝ asked the concerned Marlene
˝I knew you would betray us! I knew it!˝ shouted Skipper at the closing door.
˝Good bye Private.¨
