Disclaimer: I don't own Happy Feet or any of it's characters. Look at link in profile for the leopard seal clip in the movie if you feel you have no idea what I'm talking about.
Regular Note: Really the links are there, along with part of the skua scene...if you're interested.
I initially never owned the soup Ramen, but my sister insisted that I name a character after it...God! I'm hungry!!!
"Gloria?" Mumble called nervously, closing in on his colony. The surprised Emperors looked at him.
"He's alive after all."
"Where have you been?"
"Did you find what you were looking for?"
They all started talking at the same time. Mumble took his time answering the question. He hoped he didn't bump into Gloria...at least till later.
He didn't know if he'll have such luck, but he was soon reunited with the Amigos.
"Fluffy!" They called his nickname.
"Amigos!" Mumble called back. The small Adelies practically tackled him in excitement.
"We thought you were dead!" Raul exclaimed.
"But you're alive Tall Guy!!!" Nestor joined.
"Give Stretch some room." Ramon told them. The Amigos backed off.
"Did you find your egg?" they asked.
"I found my daughter." Mumble said. The Amigos looked around.
"Where is she?" Lombardo asked. Mumble saddened a bit.
"She didn't want to come. Rojas-er...Blubberbutt is her new parent now." Mumble told him. The Adelies were stunned.
"Madre mia..." Nestor muttered.
"It's true. But she's happy with it so-"
"Mumble!!!" he heard Gloria's voice.
"Oh, boy..." Mumble muttered. Gloria ran up to him and hugged him.
"Where have you been? I've been looking all over for you!" she told him. Mumble broke himself out of the embrace.
"Gloria I have something I need to tell you." But Gloria didn't seem to be listening. She was looking around Mumble for something.
"Where's the baby?" she asked. Mumble fidgetted and rocked back and forth.
"That's what I wanted to tell you. I sort of...don't have her with me. She's with someone else..." she mutttered. She stared at him.
"What do you mean 'someone else'?" she asked Mumble gulped.
"She's with...a kind of...creature we all know about...that is not...particularly nice to most penguins..." Mumble hesitantly informed her.
"Skuas?" she questioned, then she turned angrily to the nearest skua bird and was about to run the innocent animal down. But Mumble stopped her.
"No. Our daughter is with a leopard seal." Mumble confessed. The look on Gloria's face made Mumble even more nervous and guilty.
"A what!?" she exclaimed. Mumble paused.
"A leopard seal. But it wasn't my fault!" he was quick to defend.
"I can't believe you Mumble Soon-To-Be-Not-So-Happy Feet! How could you let this happen?"
"It was an accident. It won't happen again. And besides, she's happy with it. The seal seemed to be doing a good job of parenting her himself."
It was as if Gloria's didn't even hear the reassurances.
"Oh, there won't be a next time...I don't think you'll live long enough for that!" With those words, she charged at him. Mumble ran and Gloria gave chase.
The Amigos watched as the two penguins disappeared into the sunset.
"Ah...young love." Ramon said. The other Adelies nodded.
Now it's truely...
