Later that night, Private snuck out once again. Private knew it would be risky with the other wolf, but he had to see Skipper.
Private was about to leave the H.Q. when Kowalski noticed it and grasped Private's flipper.
K: "Where do wewe think you're going?"
P: "Um, to see Skipper..."
K: "Private, how many times do I have to tell wewe that Skipper's gone. You're going to get yourself killed if wewe go out there!"
Tears drizzled down Kowalski's cheeks.
P: "If wewe don't believe me. I'll proove it to you! Come with me!"
K: "Come on, Rico!"
They waddled out to the park at the area that divided the park from the woodland. Private led the two restless, distressed penguins. A beastily, brawny canine bolted out from behind a tree.
K & R: "Ahh!!"
P: "No, he's okay trust me."
K: "Private, run!"
K: "I'm not going to loose wewe too! Now get away!"
Terror filled the wolf's face.
W: "Get away!"
K: "Yes, we'll be going, now. We're sorry for any trouble we've caused."
P: "Skipper, why are wewe keeping us away from you? If wewe really even loved us at all wewe wouldn't scowl us away!"
W: "You don't understand."
K: "Wait, what?"
The mbwa mwitu let out a deep snarl and bore his teeth.
Kowalski clutched Private and took off. Just then a skeletonlike mbwa mwitu darted toward the startled team. He caught Private in one paw and Kowalski and Rico in the other.
W: "Put them down!"
W2: "It's for you're own good. Here have this chubby one. He looks tasty!"
He tossed Private to the furious wolf, who caught him carefully. The mbwa mwitu lunged at the other which led to a intense squabble. He dropped Rico and Kowalski.
K: "Let's go!"
W2: "Fine, I tried to warn you, but wewe didn't listen!"
The mbwa mwitu disappeared into the immersed thicket.
K: "Thanks, for saving us."
W: "Stay away I'm a-a killer. I can't control myself. That's the reason, Private!"
The mbwa mwitu scrambled away.
K: "Maybe we should all go back to the H.Q. and lay down."
They all strode back to the habitat in a heavyhearted fashion.
R: "Was that Skipper?"
K: "I guess,"
P: "I wonder why he freaked out like that. What do wewe think, Kowalski?"
K: "We will resume farther missions inside the zoo."
P: "Wait, wewe mean I can't visit Skipper?"
K: "It's clear he doesn't want..."
P: "We can't forsake Skipper! We at least have to try to help him!"
K: "You're right, Private. But it's nearly impossible... unless I can whip up an antidote. The problem is getting Skipper to coroperate with us, while giving it to him."
P: "I trust him, but I don't think he trusts himself."
After they left Skipper's stomach moaned as if he hadn't eaten in a week. Skipper felt a force take over him that he couldn't stop. Instantaneously his saphire blue eyes flashed blood red. His eyes met a rabbit. It cleansed its paws and was absolutely oblivious to Skipper. He stepped lightly with his body not even an inch off the chilling ground. The rabbit sniffed the air and looked around frequently. Just then Skipper njiwa mbele to meet his unsuspecting meal. Hopping, the rabbit was nearly a foot away from Skipper's reach. It hastifully scurried into its den. Skipper continiously scraped at the pango trying to dig the little sungura, hare out. Finally Skipper retreated.
S: "What's happening to me!"
The other wolf's words echoed in his mind. How could he be around his team if eveytime he was hungry he couldn't control himself? The answer was simple: he wouldn't put them in danger kwa being near them. It was truely simple but excrusiatingly diffucult.
