Hey everybody! This is the sequel! Sorry if this came very, very late, but I've been a busy bee :(
Now, even though Pedro is the main character here, there WILL be Nico and Lani romance in here! Just to assure you guys ;)
Anywho, I'll just shut up, and you guys can get started (P.S. I drew the cover too :) )
The sun rose from its hiding place behind the Corcovado Mountain, where the Christ Redeemer Statue stood upon. As the sun's bright, golden light grew brighter, it slowly made the dark fade away, and pleased the city of Rio De Janerio with the morning light.
In the jungle, in one of the many hollows in the forest, the sun brightened, and some of that light came in to the hollow, hitting a certain bird full blast smack in the face.
Pedro, who was snoring loudly, groaned, opening his eyes for just a split second before quickly shutting them again, covering his face with his wing. "Stupid sunlight..." he groaned. He blinked several times before turning around, back against the sun, and laid down again. He stared at the two canaries, Nico and Lani, across from him, sleeping soundly side by side together.
It had been almost a whole month since they both had met that night. And only almost a week before they became a couple.
Pedro yawned, wanting to go back to sleep, but he was already wide awake. So he just stared up at the ceiling.
There was a small yawn, and Pedro looked to see Lani opening her eyes. "Mornin'!" Pedro greeted, sitting up. Lani smiled, sitting up and rubbing her eyes. "Aren't you usually asleep until ten?" she asked.
"Well, if the sun hadn't hit me in the face, I would be!" Pedro groaned. Lani chuckled, fixing the pretty red flower in her feathers, "I told you to sleep with your back facing the sun! But no, you complained about getting sun burned!"
"Hey, I like being evenly tanned, thank you very much! Not all, lopsided!" Pedro protested, folding his wings, pouting.
"You mean, uneven..."
Lani laughed and stood up, ruffling her feathers. "I don't get it," Pedro said. "What?" Lani asked. "How do you get up at the crack of dawn? Nico doesn't even wake that early!"
The female canary shrugged, smiling. "I'm a morning bird, I can't help it."
"But it just creeps me out. You're all wide awake and all that when I wake up!"
"You're arguing about that again?"
Lani and Pedro turned to see Nico wide awake, his bottlecap on his head. "It just bothers me about her getting up so early!"
Nico walked over to Lani wrapping a wing around her. "C'mon Pedro, lots of others do that too."
"Well, yeah, but, it just freaks me out. I mean, what if she tries to booby trap us?" Pedro spoke, eyes wide.
Nico and Lani just stared at him weirdly. "What? Is there something in my beak?" Pedro asked, freaking out a little.
"Did you go watch scary movies with Leon last night, again?" Lani asked.
Pedro's eyes shifted around nervously. "...Maybe." he mumlbed.
"Well, that explains a lot of things," Nico rolled his eyes.
The rest of the day went well. The trio fed themselves, bathed, flew around Rio, they even took a trolley ride.
All of it passed very quickly, and soon, the sun was setting, night started crawling in. "Getting dark..." Nico said, looking up at the sky. "Yeah, we should start flying back to the jungle." Lani agreed, but then looked around. "Hey, where's Pedro?"
Both canaries looked around them, but didn't see him. They landed on the roof of a nearby building, until...
Nico was suddenly tackled and he slammed against the floor. Luckily, he managed to wriggle out and fly back up. "What the- PEDRO!" Nico shouted.
Pedro zoomed right up to them, his eyes wide and crazy. "Hey guys where have you been I've been looking for you all day Oh wait it's been only five minutes haha silly me anyway are you guys thirsty because I'm really thirsty even though I already drank a lot over there and I have to pee but I want more I'm so happy I can grow wings oh duh I already have them because I'm a bird and I can fly already haha Whoopeedoo!" Pedro said all in a single breath. He laughed maniacally and zoomed through the air, like some crazed flying acrobat.
"Oh no..." Nico groaned. "Not again..." Lani facepalmed. Pedro kept whizzing above their heads, giggling like a little girl. Both looking at each other, they said at the same time, "You're turn!"
"I did it last week!" Nico said. "But I already had my turn three days ago!" Lani replied.
Nico groaned, "Oh, alright... Hold my bottlecap." He took off his bottlecap and handed it to her. Then he took to the skies.
"Who can take the sunriiiissse? Sprinkle it with dewwww..." Pedro sang. Well, actually yelled it instead of singing. "Cover it with- Yipe!"
Nico had grabbed ahold of Pedro's leg and pulled, trying to bring him down. "C'mon Pedro! Let's land back on the roof, shall we?" Nico grunted, yanking hard. "No I don't wanna land I wanna stay up here all day now let go of me!" Pedro half-shouted, half-giggled.
"Nope! You and I are gonna take a little trip and DUMP YOU IN THE LAKE!" Nico yanked harder, but Pedro somehow resisted. However, this made him lose most of his concentration, and both smacked right into a nearby window, making a human boy do a double take to see two birds stuck on the window.
Lani flinched with a slight hiss at the sight. When Pedro suddenly got up and flew back up, taking Nico with him, she groaned. "I gotta do everything, huh?" she muttered. Lani then placed Nico's bottlecap down and flew to a nearby garden. She plucked a large, purple grape and flew back to the roof.
Placing Nico's bottlecap on her head, lowering it until it was just above her eyes, she aimed carefully. "C'mon..." she whispered.
Pedro was shouting, "I BELIEVE I CAN FLYYYYY I BELIEVE I CAN TOUCH THE SKYYY!"
"Pedro, shut up already!" Nico yelled, still hanging on to Pedro's foot. He didn't have to fly, just by holding on to Pedro's foot made him airborne.
Suddenly, there was a SPLAT. Nico felt some juice fly onto his face as the grape struck Pedro right in the face. Losing the mere bit of concentration he had left, Pedro and Nico were now going down. "Mayday, were about to CRASH!" Nico shouted as the roof came closer and closer.
Pedro wasn't freaking out at all. Instead, he was saying, his voice warbled, "I'm the prettiest girl in all the land! Hee hee hee!"
Nico grabbed Pedro's feet with his and flapped his wings hard. This slowed down the impact, and just a few seconds later, Pedro flopped onto the roof, Nico landing right next to him, panting.
"You okay?" Lani ran over to the duo, holding Nico's bottlecap in her wing. "Try telling that to him," Nico took his bottlecap from Lani and pointed to Pedro, who was lying on his back, flipping around, still giggling.
"You threw the grape?" Nico asked, both watching Pedro flail around. "Yep." Lani answered, not taking her eyes off at all.
"Thanks for that."
"No problem. So, how are we gonna get him off this time?"
"Eh, it'll probably wear in a few minutes."
They suddenly noticed Pedro stopped wriggling around and within a half-second, they were face to face with him.
"Hey Nico and Lani can we got to the club oh pretty pretty please?" Pedro begged. "Hmm... Let's see... NO!" Both canaries said in unison.
"Oh c'mon pretty please with nuts and sprinkles on top?" Pedro kept begging.
"We'll try to go tommorrow," Lani replied. "But we've been gone soooo lonnnng!" Pedro argued.
"Pedro, we've been only gone two days since last time." Nico spoke.
"Two days Oh samba we've been gone too long C'mon let's go!" Pedro immediately flew off, so fast in fact that he was gone within three seconds.
Nico and Lani both looked at each other in both confusion and awe for a few seconds. Then Lani spoke,
"Maybe you should really cut down on how much Coca-Cola he drinks..."
