MARLENE’S TRUE PASSION
Skipper was 読書 the paper and using the bathroom. His eyes were irritated and red from crying that he had shielded from the team, especially Private. He had just been on a 日付 with Marlene and he’d found out that she was cheating. She was meeting a guy in a back alley. He’d seen her sneak off when he gone under the 魚 bowl and took a glance back and decided to follow her and see what she was doing. She had crept through the sewers and come up in a back alley and met with another カワウソ, オッター and she had been talking for a while in a soft voice which he only caught snatches of and then she had hugged him and pecked him on the cheek and Skipper had confronted her then. She denied it as Lola had and he slid off and to his bunk and cried.
He suddenly heard someone come in and Marlene’s voice. My, gosh! He thought. Will she give it up?! He continued 読書 the paper but only caught snatches of news because in the back of his mind, he wanted to hear what Marlene was saying. He heard Kowalski’s educated voice and Private’s British accent. He sighed as he heard Rico squawking too. They probably believed her. He’d be made the enemy. A tear dripped from his eye and he sniffed. Then there was a knock on the door.
“Occupied!” he barked
“Oh come out Skipper,” 発言しました Marlene’s muffled voice. “I can explain.”
“Occupied!” he barked again.
“Oh for heaven’s sake.” he heard Kowalski say.
He heard something turning in the door knob and Marlene burst in.
“Marlene!!!!” he shouted, holding the paper in front of himself for no particular reason.
She had irritated, red eyes as well.
“Skipper!” she 発言しました “I can explain what あなた saw.”
“I’m sure.” Skipper 発言しました sarcastically.
“Look,” she 発言しました “And listen to me!” she 発言しました as he started 読書 the paper again. He didn’t listen so she tore it away from him.
“LISTEN TO ME!” she shouted
“I’m just going to go.” 発言しました Kowalski, nervously and fled.
“What?!” Skipper asked angrily.
“What あなた saw was not what it looked like.” she 発言しました
Skipper folded his flippers.
“And why is that?” he asked
“I was not cheating on you! I was talking to that guy about something.”
“Huh,” 発言しました Skipper “And I suppose that キッス on the cheek was and accident.”
She blushed red, with fury and embarrassment.
“I was thanking him!” she 発言しました matter-of-factly.
“Why? What did he do for you?” asked Skipper questioningly.
“Well- I do-,” she began
“You can’t tell me, huh? Well I have an idea so I-…” Skipper started to say but Marlene shouted: “IF あなた WANT TO KNOW WHY, THEN I’LL TELL YOU!!!!”
Skipper was taken aback によって her outburst but she had his attention. She took a 分 to calm down and then began talking.
“I didn’t want to tell あなた this yet, and no comment!” she shouted as Skipper began to retort. “But I was getting あなた a present!”
Skipper opened his mouth to say something but stopped. He sat there on the toilet and stared at her. She stared back.
“A present?” he 発言しました finally, unsure.
“Yes,” she said, softly now. “This.”
She brought out a small wrapped box.
“I was going to surprise あなた on our 次 日付 and when あなた blew up; I went back and got it from him and-…” she was sniffling. “Just take it and I’ll leave.”
She turned to walk out when Skipper hopped up, spun her around, and planted his beak against her lips. They kissed for a few 秒 and then Skipper pulled back.
“I’m sorry I doubted you,” he 発言しました “I just-…”
“I don’t want to here It.” she said, smiling.
He smiled back and opened the present.
It was a golden chain and when あなた opened it, it had a picture of Skipper and Marlene together.
“It’s beautiful.” he 発言しました and kissed her again.
Kowalski, Rico, and Private walked in to see how things were going (because they hadn’t heard yelling for a while and wondered if they had killed each other) and walked in on them kissing. Kowalski shielded Private’s eyes and Rico “Aawwed.” at them. They broke off and looked around, embarrassed. Kowalski unshielded Private’s eyes. Private looked uncomfortable and everyone but Skipper knew why. Black lipstick was smeared over his beak where she had kissed him.
“How long have あなた be-…” they both 発言しました at the same time.
“Long enough.” 発言しました Kowalski
“What does that mean?” asked Skipper, rubbing his beak feeling the stickiness and blushing.
Marlene giggled as he wiped it away, embarrassed.
“Well, I’ll see あなた later, Skipper.” she said, キス him on the cheek.
She left after that.
“I see あなた have worked things out.” observed Kowalski
“I guess.” 発言しました Skipper
