Antarctica

The Song became Love

"Once there was a way to get back homeward."

Sometimes we feel small. Useless, helpless - like the Universe doesn't need us.

"Are the stars out tonight?"

Well that's how the hero of our story felt. Unwanted and unloved by almost everyone, and those who would help him could only offer so little.

"Once there was a way, to get back home."

As our hero grew up, opposition and resentment towards him only grew worse.

"I only have eyes."

But our hero managed to rise against all odds and use the talents that made him unique to show everyone that they can shine, in their own time, in their own way.

"Sleep, pretty darling. Do not cry."

This is his story.

"And I will sing a lullaby."


At the bottom of the Earth, there is an enchanted place called Antarctica, where the dazzling beauty of snow and ice reign supreme for eternity. Many penguins, rather tall, were waddling to a special place: Emperor Land. They had black feathers on their backs, white ones on their underbellies, and yellow, gold and orange ones around their upper bodies, necks and heads. They were the Emperor Penguins. And all the males were focusing on one female: Norma Jean.

The young female adult belted out her heartsong:

"You don't have to be beautiful,
To turn me on.
I just need your body, baby,
From dusk till dawn."

Three males tried to court her with their own songs – all failed.

"You don't need experience,
To turn me out.
You just leave it all up to me -"

Another male tried his song about having eggs with her. Norma Jean was appalled, but quickly regained her composure.

"You don't have to be rich
To be my pearl.
You don't have to be cool
To rule my world.
Ain't no particular song
I'm more compatible with.
I just want your extra -"

At that moment, Norma Jean saw 30 emperors following her!

"Boys! Boys! Give a chick a chance!" she cried out. Then a familiar voice rang out. Someone she knew since they were little. In fact, they were even in the same class together. Memphis.

"Well!
Since my baby left me,
I found a new place to dwell.
It's down at the end of lonely street –
At Heartbreak Hotel."

As far back when he was a chick, Memphis always did a little dance when he sang. No one knew why, and no one approved. But as long as he could sing, all would be fine. And although a few would admit it, all of them thought it was cute. Memphis continued his heartsong.

"And I said:
I'm feeling so lonely, baby.
I'm feeling so lonely.
I'm feeling so lonely..."

"I could die," sang Norma Jean in reply.

Could it be, both penguins thought to themselves, that our heartsongs match? Both were best friends since chickhood, but it never occurred to them once in their lives that they were destined to be together, forever.

M: "You don't have to be rich, to be my girl."
NJ: "You don't have to be cool to rule my world."
M: "You rule my world."
NJ: "You're the particular song I'm compatible with."
M: "I just want your -"
Both: "- extra time, and your kiss!"

The two met in the middle of a heart formation, formed by the other penguins surrounding them. They were both crying tears of seemingly eternal joy. They nuzzled their beaks happily, a penguin's kiss.

And the last word of their heartsong hung in the air, forever.


Well, that's my first chapter done! I hope you like it, and review if you wish.
