The two penguins hurled themselves at the 6 inch metal door. No use making a dent in that, but they were trying anyway. Private gave the barrier another good swat before stopping to catch his breath. His companion, Kowalski, hit the door again like a bullet to no avail. "Come on, Private," he panted. "We can't stop. We're close, I can feel it!" Another slam echoed as Kowalski bounded off the opposite wall and smashed into the door.
"I'll -gasp- just be with you in a minute," Private replied, plopping down on the floor from exhaustion.
The duo had been snatched up and trapped by something in the black of night. They weren't sure of Rico's and Skipper's well being or why they were here, but they knew for certain they had to escape, and fast.
"You can't quit now," Kowalski chided. "The longer we wait, the more dangerous our situation will become!" He swung a hard kick to the door of their prison, still nothing. Every word Kowalski spoke was higher pi

'My friends are dorks,' you thought to yourself as you and two of your best friends, Matthias and Gilbert, were standing in line at the movie theater. They were forcing you too see Madagascar 3. Seriously? A kids movie? And on opening night too!
"Guys, this is so lame," you whined as you looked around at the other people in line. All of the adults had kids with them. "We're the only ones here without kids!"
"You drug us to Puss 'N Boots last year," Matthias said while Gilbert laughed.
"Hey, Puss 'N Boots was a cute movie," you argued. "Heracles liked it."
"That's cause he's a cat obsessed moron," Gilbert said.
"And what's wrong with that?" you retorted as Matthias chuckled and shook his head. "Cats are awesome."
"Birds are awesomer," Gilbert said glaring at you.
"Hah!" you exclaimed. "Tricked ya!"
"Not cool, frau!" Gilbert growled as you stuck your tongue out at him.
"You two are setting a bad example for the kids here," Matthias laughed.

Skipper leaned in closer to the others, "Stay quiet, nobody-"
"HELP! SKIPPA, WE'RE CAPTURED!" Private's scream echoed through the forest.
"Private!" Rico gasped loudly, he regurgitated a crowbar and threatened the hidden animals.
Kowalski hissed at him to be quiet, but it was too late. Sharpened wooden spears shot at them. A pair of hands grabbed Kowalski and he disappeared. A vine shot out and tied
Rico's beak and he was dragged away by different pair of hands.

"Alright spear-holding ringtails, we don't want any trouble." Skipper tried to reason, he was answered by a sharp rock narrowly missing his head. "Forget reason, I'm about to show you why they call me the king of brute force."
There was a whisper among the trees. Julien squealed as a pair of strong hands grabbed him. Skipper stood in fighting stance.

"Why am I moving into Kowalski's observation bunk?"
Skipper and Kowalski looked back at Private. Under one flipper, the young cadet held his pillow, and his toy unicorn under the other. He looked more like a child going to a sleepover.
"That's classified information, Private," Skipper retorted. Private was still clearly confused. "Aye-aye, Skippa. You're the boss," he shrugged.
The extra bunk in Kowalski's lab was there for the occasion one of the crewmembers fell horribly ill. They had hoped they would never have to use it. And now, here was Private; naïve, expendable Private, hoisting his things into the rectangular cavity in the wall. Finally, the penguin climbed into the bunk, looking down at the leader and his first mate. "Well, g'night Private," Skipper waddled out of the room; Kowalski behind him. The door shut, leaving Private in th
Un-named PoM FF Ch. 1It was a moderately warm afternoon in Central Park Zoo, one of those un-eventful days. The zoo had closed for the day and Alice had left. On those rare days when something didn't go unexpectedly wrong in a time-period of 22 minutes, the animals in the zoo took some time to themselves. The penguins where occupied with their own tasks.Un-named PoM FF Ch. 14 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Skipper, for probably the millionth time, was taking a walk; more for the purpose of triple-checking the perimeter of the zoo, rather than leisure. Days like this were too quiet for the paranoid penguin. Bored out of his mind, Rico was close behind his leader.
As expected, Private was absorbed in the Lunacorn show. He had missed the new episode from yesterday.
Kowalski had locked himself in his laboratory. He had hardly realized how long he had been working. His stomach started to growl irritably. Just one more thing, he thought to himself. Then I'll get a snack. Carefully, a cork in one flipper, a vile of a blue liquid in the ot

Skipper was an early riser that morning. He couldn't think at all, of course, until he had his daily morning coffee. He sat at the table, anticipating the appliance brewing the beverage to be done, he practically face-planted the table top. What an awful night, constantly waking up with that twinge. Not to mention the periodic nightmares. He covered his eyes with one flipper.
"Skipper?" a gravelly voice penetrated his ears. If he had looked up, he would have seen Rico stretching tiredly, confused as to why Skipper was up so early. Rico had a way of knowing when things were wrong. Well, his teammates had always wondered if the heavy-set penguin had a sixth sense to make up for his lack of speech. Rico stared at his leader from across the main room. Skipper finally looked over at him sluggishly. "Can't you see I'm waiting for my coffee?"
Rico approached him, making face something like concern; hard to tell with Rico. The coffee

The four of the penguins barely slept; their minds were occupied with a matter of the same nature. Kowalski lay in his bunk, all thoughts mushed together and unorganized in his brain. For the first time a in a while, he wasn't thinking about anything. His mind had practically shut down.
Skipper, on the contrary, had too many thoughts circulating through his head. For a while, he wracked his brain on what to do. If Kowalski wouldn't find a way to fix everything AND keep them all alive, maybe he could. He wasn't about to start panicking now, or ever. The ever-present twinge had now turned into something like pure frustration.
Rico gave up on masking his thoughts with his psychopath nature. He was thinking similar to Skipper now. Though, he wasn't the one to come up with a strategy. His job was brute force. Brute force wasn't going to help here.
Private was in a series of short, fitful sleeps and waking up with his mind whirling as he tried to take in just what was going on. At

"We are too hard on him," Skipper muttered for the third time. "Weren't we?"
"Most likely," Kowalski answered. They stopped outside the fence of the penguin habitat.
They had been circling the habitat behind skippers lead at least eight times. Adding that to the few hours it took to get the fish back into the fridge (it was the day Alice "cleaned" the office), and the day was reaching it's end.
"Do you think we should talk to him?" Kowalski suggested. "He might be pretty heartbroken."
"And why would he be heartbroken?" Skipper snapped, almost as if he were paranoid of Kowalski's theory.
"Well, that fish was a gift. Taking it back was-"
"For his safety, and ours," Skipper interjected, not 100 percent sure of what he had just said. "I'm sure Private will understand."
"Ehff u saee so," Rico grunted. "Glad to see SOMEONE agrees," Skipper said, quick with a reply.
The three entered HQ. They were startled when they saw Private, his back to them and looking at a

Kowalski slammed his head on the table. Nothing was working! Nothing!
He folded his flippers over his head. He couldn't lose his nerve. He wouldn't.
He straightened. The clock was ticking. There was no time to panic. The weight of a team member rested on shoulders or rather lack of shoulders.
Kowalski was out of ideas, and was now just sitting helplessly. Though, he did make a well-stressed mental note to never let anyone in the lab unless completely necessary ever again.
He had a deep down feeling that the answer was in plain sight, but his mind didn't work like that.
Oh, why did this have to happen? Why did it have to happen to Private? Private never did anything to deserve this.
Kowalski could seek out Private when he needed the occasional kind word or two. The young penguin also had a knack for making sure most things came to a happy ending. He had absolute loyalty to his comrades, an affectionate personality,

"What do you mean he can't talk?"
Kowalski peered down Private's throat. Private had a frightened expression on his face, not sure anymore if he was more afraid of not being able to speak or Skipper looking like he was about to strangle Kowalski.
"His throat is pretty inflamed," Kowalski answered Skipper, stopping short. "Can you breathe okay, Private?"
Private nodded as Kowalski let him close his wide-open beak. A twitch of relief flickered past Kowalski's face. "Good," he answered, handing Private a notepad and a purple crayon. "In the meantime you can communicate with this."
Private nodded again.
Skipper broke the awkward silence. "Uh, so, how are you today?"
Private smiled, holding a flipper up as a sort of "thumps up".
"Great. The zoo gates open at eight hundred hours. You'll need to make up for the time you've lost."
Private saluted, sucking in his gut. The young penguin's good attitude today made the other three relax a bit for the rest of the

Private stood on Julien's cage, looking around. He spotted something below his feet; it was a coarse, white penguin feather. He sniffed it; it smelled like fish and explosives.
Private looked up, the vent had a visible dent in it and he was sure that it wasn't he who did it.
Can it be? He thought, staring up. He wasn't even distracted by the footsteps of Josie entering cautiously.
Julien gasped as Josie came in. "Josie, you're okay!"
"SHH!" Josie pressed a paw to his mouth.
Marlene watched Private curiously, "Private, what are you doing?" She asked.
He didn't answer, but leapt down and examined the feathers on the ground. "They're identical " he whispered to himself, staring from the feathers on the ground to the one on his flipper."
Back in the laboratory, Kowalski was tinkering with the water they were given. He set out a cup and there was a bubbling noise that went unnoticed by Simon. "Boy, I'm thirsty!" Kowalski said, turning around and taking a gulp of water from th

Nat smiled as she left Marlene's habitat. "Nice girl, I only wish Emma and Izzy were here."
She saw Skipper head back inside the HQ. Julien looked irritated from being told off by the penguin. Seeking a golden opportunity to annoy the lemur king again, Nat jumped on his throne.
"Um, excuse me?" a squeaky voice came from below.
Nat looked around and spotted Mort. "Hey there, how can I help you?"
"Miss Natalie, you can't sit on the throne." Mort said. To further agitate Julien, Nat said that Mort was the only one allowed to call her Natalie.
"Didn't he say that you can let me do what I want?" Nat said slyly.
"Well, yes." Mort looked confused; he was clearly trying to understand what was going on.
"Then you shouldn't say I can't sit here when you were told to do my bidding." Nat chuckled.
At that moment, Julien came up to the throne.
"Off the royal throne." He ordered.
"No." Nat said simply.
"No? Listen here, I am king and that is my throne. Are you understanding perfectly now?"

It had only been two weeks and Maya was already stirring up frenzy. She was hungry one minute, and tired the next. The lemurs were evidentially unprepared for the baby. Maurice was tired from taking care of Maya when Josie needed a break; Mort ran around, trying to touch the feet; Julien was scolded for taking her on the bouncy; and Josie was getting fewer minutes of sleep each day.
Rocky had gotten used to the zoo and decided to stay for a while. She loved Maya and always volunteered to help.
The boys mainly tried to avoid the crying baby.
In the weeks that followed, Maya was learning to crawl and got into more trouble than before.

Kowalski jerked awake at the shout of his officer. Private still slept. Skipper shot Kowalski a confused and irritated look. Kowalski smiled awkwardly. "Eh heh, good morning Skipper, sleep well?"
"Like a baby. What happened here?"
Kowalski nudged Private a few times. Private blinked, yawning. "Five more minutes " the young penguin murmured, snuggling deeper into Kowalski's feathers.
"Negatory. Let's move. Morning exercises are in ten minutes."
Kowalski pushed Private away, trying to jolt him awake one more time. He stood up, brushing himself off.
Skipper suddenly plugged his nose. "What's with the bucket?"

The sun peeked innocently through the trees and the birds chirped to each other. Private yawned and stretched. He kept his eyes shut, imagining that he was back at the zoo and Alice was about to throw fish at them and Skipper was going to order them up top for training.
Skipper's voice did come, but it wasn't for breakfast, "Good, were all awake, the sooner we get going, the sooner we can find Rocky and get out of here."
Private opened his eyes and sighed. "Aye-aye, Skippa."
Rico jumped out of the tree to their left and shook his head; Kowalski jumped down from the right tree and shook his head too.
"We're not being followed." Kowalski said.
Julien felt relieved, "Maybe they are too chicken to be exploring new places." He laughed.
Mort started sniffing, "FOOOD!"

Mort jumped to his feet, "Mort smells pie!" he squealed, running through the trees.

As soon as the zoo gates closed, Kowalski whipped out his abacus. "Hmm, there is a highly statistical improbability that Julien is the father of the baby. But there is a fifty-fifty chance of Josie or Natty being pregnant."

Private was mesmerized, it was the lemur from his dream. She's beautiful, He thought.
"Who the deuce are you?" Skipper demanded. He did not want another Julien in this zoo.
She stood up and glared at the short, flat-headed penguin. "What's it to you, flat head?"
Skipper growled, but she stopped paying attention. Her eyes were now riveted to the tall penguin between the one with the Mohawk and scar, and the otter.

News stories popped up about the explosions, but none of them were close to the truth. The humans thought that a boiler had been left on and exploded; Skipper is satisfied with that explanation. Two days later, Julien immediately resumed being his annoying self; he seems quite happy without Nat around to mess with him. Mort seems to have forgotten about the events that occurred not so long ago. Maurice is trying to forget it all and Josie's become bigger; I think she might deliver any day now.
