Chapter 1: the robber arrives.
A/N: Rico the Black Hawk is owned by Ricardo the Black Hawk. I was given permission to use it. Don't believe me, ask him yourself. Thank you.
A quiet peaceful day in the beautiful city of Rio De Janeiro. Inside Tulio's aviary (Which was closed). Blu, Jewel, Nico, Pedro, and their new friend Rico were all sitting by Tulio's computer while looking on the internet.
"Wow Blu, I never knew you were so good with computers." said Jewel in amazement.
"Yeah, I guess I'm really resourceful." chuckled Blu in response.
"And that's why I love you." smiled Jewel while she pecked the side of his cheek.
"Shame shame!" laughed Nico.
"We know yo name!" laughed Pedro
"Oh, grow up." Jewel groaned to the duo samba birds.
As the friends, browsed on to computer, flapping was heard nearby, and by the sounds of it, I may not be Rafael, Eva or any of their friends.
The birds turned around and faced the window where they saw a Martinique Macaw fly inside while wearing a small brown bag around him, and also closing the window behind him.
Blu was a little surprised. He knew that according to the books he had read at Linda's, Martinique Macaws have been extinct since the year 1907.
"Hello, can we help you?" asked Blu.
The Macaw suddenly pulled out a bird sized pistol in his talon. "Nobody move!" the Macaw ordered.
Everyone obeyed except for Blu "Oh-my." who fainted.
"Take it easy man!" Rico said.
"Look, just point me to the safe, and we cool!" the Macaw instructed. "Now, who knows where it is?"
"I do." Blu said, getting back up from the ground.
"Go then!" the Macaw instructed, waving his gun.
Blu flew up, to a picture, and pulled it off revealing a safe inside.
"You know the code?" the Macaw asked.
"Yeah." Blu replied.
"Open it." the Macaw instructed.
Blu obeyed and placed his talons on the lock proceeded to turn the safe lock sideways while listening for the click.
Blu did it correctly, but the safe remand closed. "I can't open the safe!"
"Come on Blu, open the safe, don't be a moron, all your life!" Rico said, not wanting to die because of his friend.
"I can't, its on a time lock, which doesn't,t open, until tomorrow at 9am " Blu explained.
"What?" the Macaw replied while looking at his small bird sized watch strapped around his wing.
"What time does it go on a time lock?"
"It locks at 6 and opens at 9." Blu explained.
"6? But its 5:10." the Macaw said, looking at his watch.
Rico turned around and saw the clock was on a different time and decided to correct him. "No, its 6:30." Rico corrected.
"Stupid watch!" said the Macaw hitting his watch.
"It always goes wrong! I only got it last week!" the Macaw complained. The Robber looked at the others who were still looking nervously, "Well, what am I supposed to do then?"
"Can't you come back, tomorrow?" suggested Nico.
"Well, I guess there's nothing else to do then." the Macaw said while flying towards the window.
Everyone sighed in relief Was the Robber leaving? The Macaw placed a lock on the window locked it tight. "We'll have to wait!" he yelled.
"Wait, but thats..." Rico said, counting the clock numbers. "That's 15 hours!" Rico complained.
"I don't wanna be in here, anymore than you do, so lets just stay calm." said the Macaw.
"What's with the wings in the air?" the Macaw asked.
"You got a gun in your talon, don't know if you noticed." Rico replied.
"You can put them down." the Macaw said.
Everyone slowly put their wings down and sat down on the table.
"It's only fifteen hours, it'll soon pass, just sit and behave." the Macaw said, sitting down on another table, with his wings crossed, and legs crossed, with the gun still in his talon.
"What do we do?" Blu whispered to the others.
"Well, I am not sitting in her for fifteen hours!" replied Jewel in a yelling whisper.
Jewel-without thinking: charged towards the Macaw at full speed.
Before she could claw him, he quickly dodged her attack, and put his wings, under her armpits and behind her neck and restrained her.
"Nice try." the Macaw smirked.
"Let me go!" demanded Jewel while wiggling around the best she could.
"You're feisty? I have a cure for that.". The Macaw pulled out a small pair of bird size hand cuffs, and attached them to Jewel's talons holding them together.
"Now behave!" the Macaw ordered as he shoved Jewel back over to the others. The cuffs on Jewel's talons were so close together, she couldn't stand up without falling and couldn't move her legs separately.
Jewel used her wings to get back up. She kept her balance for a few seconds, but immediately fell down on her belly. Jewel had couldn't keep her balance, and had two options.
1. Fly in to the air to keep herself up, but get exhausted.
2. Or sit still on the floor.
Jewel decided to sit back down on the table. Jewel raised her talons up and tried to pull them off with her wingtips. "Let me out of these cuffs!"
"No! Until you learn to behave, you can keep those on." the Macaw replied.
"Jeez, the guys a maniac." Nico whispered to Pedro.
"What was that?" the Macaw asked hearing the Canary whisper.
"Nothing, nothing!" Nico quickly replied.
"Now everyone just stay where you are, it's only fifteen hours, time will fly." the Macaw said, adjusting his gun.
"Guess, we better get comfy." suggested Blu while leaning against the wall while sitting on the table.
4 hours later
Time had passed in the aviary as the Macaw robber leaned against the wall while sitting on top of another table, with his bag and a bunch of berries next to him.
As for the others he had captive-Blu leaned up against Tulio's computer with Jewel laying in his lap, and with her talons still cuffed.
Pedro sat on top of the computer, spinning Nico's bottle cap around on his talon for entertainment
Nico however, had himself perched himself on top of Rico's head, who was sleeping to try and past the time.
"Rico, Rico, Rick." said Nico jumping on the hawks head.
"Ah." Rico said, waking up, putting his wings up thinking it was the Robber.
"What time is it?" Rico asked, rubbing his dark blue eyes.
"9:30 at night." Blu called from the other table.
"Still, 11 and 30 minutes to go." Rico sighed, turning to the robber.
"I hate being in these cuffs." Jewel sighed, snuggling the side of her head into Blu's lower belly.
"Don't worry Jewel, he'll get what he wants, and he'll let you out of those." Blu said, giving her a kiss on the head
Rico leaned up while stretching his black feathered neck. Rico was curios to know-what was in the safe, money? No why would a Bird need money.
"Er, 'cuse me, ?" Rico said, getting his attention.
"Yes?" the Macaw replied.
"So, what's in that safe, that you need?" Rico inquired
"Why do you wanna know?" the Macaw asked, fiddling around with his gun.
"Just curious, that's all." Rico said, hoping not to anger him.
The Macaw, hopped up, from his computer. "Alright, listen up, im a Martinique Macaw, my kind are extinct, except for me, and that guy...the...Bird...doctor-".
"Tulio." Blu finished for him.
"Yes him, anyway, he collect blood samples of Macaws, that were endangered, for a machine to repopulate, specious, with their DNA, he never made, but I found some guys who have." the Martinique Macaw explained before taking a few breathes.
"So, you're actually trying to help specious?" Blu asked.
"Yep, and I never wanted, to hold you guys here, like this, if it weren't for my stupid watch!" the Macaw grunted while banging his broken-watch.
While the Macaw was distracted, explaining about his kind. Rico had picked up, a mobile phone, and proceed to dial a number. Unfortunately, the battery was low, meaning he only had a chance for one phone call. Rico dialed a number, and brought the phone, to his ear.
The birds have been held captive by this "Macaw". Let's hope they can figure out what he is up to before it's too late.
