OPERATION: inicial SWEET HOME CHAPTER ONE ~ Prologue: The Promise ~
Four months earlier, Skipper, then alone on parte superior, arriba of the pingüino, pingüino de habitat’s platform, was taking a break from smiling and waving at zoo visitors when there was a lull in the crowd. It was at that time when Marlene came por unexpectedly and approached him with a request. “Skipper, I need tu to promise me something,” she dicho as she walked up to him.
“What do tu need?” Skipper asked.
“Most of my life I spent in California, and I had some great times there, but I believe I’ve finally found my place here,” she said. “I really like it here. The best friends I’ve ever had are here. I’ve had a lot of fun adventures here. And you, Skipper, are here.”
“So, what do tu need me to promise you?” Skipper wondered.
“Assure me that I’ll never be transferred away from here,” Marlene stated.
“Done,” Skipper replied.
“Thanks,” Marlene said. “It really means a lot to me. Now I’ll leave tu to carry on with whatever it was that tu were doing.”
And with that, Marlene waved goodbye and left.
Now Skipper was a good friend with Marlene, and he truly meant it when he dicho that he would prevent her from being transferred. But he never thought that Marlene would ever be in danger of being taken away.
He thought wrong.
