Just wondering... is anyone actually Membaca this??? Let me know!
Kowalski walked into the HQ a few minit later - still not remembering what had happened that night - to find Skipper, Rico, Private, and even Katrina already awake. Marlene was also there, being comforted sejak Katrina - she seemed to be quite shaken up over something.
"Kowalski!" Skipper barked. "Where were you?"
"I woke up in the park." Kowalski berkata in a dazed voice. "I must have been sleepwalking atau something of the sort."
"See to it that it doesn't happen again." Skipper said. "Marlene says she had an unexpected visitor last night. A penguin. I'm thinking it's one of our enemies, in disguise-"
"What?" Kowalski gasped - truly, this was news to him. "Who was it?"
"He must be going under a different name, I've never heard-"
Marlene interrupted Skipper. She said, in an unusually worried voice, "He berkata his name was Adrian Black. Does it ring a bell?"
"Adrian-!" Kowalski hissed under his breath. He spun around, turning his back to Marlene. The events of the last night flooded into his memory - the intense pain, escaping out of the HQ, harassing Marlene, the song - all through the eyes of Adrian himself. He quickly realized he was able to access these memories because he and Adrian did share the same brain - two separate beings in one body… well, he had to admit, he'd been able to separate evil from himself, but this was… unexpected, to say the least.
"Oh, God…" he muttered to himself, horrified.
"What's up?" Skipper asked. "Do anda know him?"
Kowalski broke out of his reverie, and opened his beak - then snapped it shut. Of course he couldn't tell! He was merely in the middle of an experiment - this was why he experimented, to find out what happened afterwards - he'd just have to be much lebih careful seterusnya time. Besides, who would believe him? The whole thing was a little far-fetched, to say the least.
"Uh - yes." Kowalski said. "I mean, no. I mean… I mean, the name is familiar, but I can't remember how." That wasn't entirely untrue - just mere saat ago, he had been blissfully unaware of Adrian's existence.
"Well, tell me when anda remember." Skipper said. "I want to keep an eye on him if he shows up again - anda tell me if he bugs anda again, Marlene. We'll set him straight."
Marlene smiled. "Thanks. Thanks to anda too, Katrina."
"Anytime." Katrina said.
Marlene nodded. "I think I'll go utama now, I'll be okay." She left the HQ, calm and reassured.
Skipper sighed. "Good, that's taken care of, for now. All right, men - warm-ups in ten minutes."
Skipper left to prepare for their warm-up, and Rico and Private walked off to do something - Kowalski didn't see because someone tapped his shoulder. He turned.
"Katrina." He berkata with a weak smile. "Uh - good morning."
"Where were anda last night?" she berkata curiously.
"Uh - I was sleepwalking, like I told Skipper-"
"But anda never even came to bed. We may not be married quite yet, Kowalski, but I can tell when your katil hasn't been slept in." She pointed to his perfectly made bunk.
Kowalski blinked, racking his brain, then said, "I - I fell asleep in the lab. I was running some tests, and -"
Katrina frowned. "Tests? Kowalski, you're not still doing that good-and-evil experiment, are you?"
"Well… yes." Kowalski admitted. He hated lying to her, but the look she gave him made him cringe on the inside. "But… but Katrina, I finally found a way to experiment without… using any lebih subjects."
The look faded away, and Katrina smiled. "You did? That's great! How-"
"But the problem is," Kowalski cut her off before she had a chance to ask how he did it. "The results weren't… weren't exactly what I had hypothesized."
"Oh. Well… at least, now anda know, right? I'm sure anda can find a way around it." Katrina berkata encouragingly.
Kowalski faked an agreeing sort of smile, while thinking to himself, if only she knew…
Later that day…
It was time to entertain the people. The penguins put on their cute act… but something was troubling Kowalski. It wasn't Adrian, he'd done some thinking while going through routine warm-ups and breakfast, and thought he had a plan… it was Katrina. Talking to her this morning had put some worrying thoughts into his mind and he couldn't shake it away. He had to talk to her.
He got an idea. Kowalski waddled up to her and whispered, "Katie… can I talk to you?"
"There's kind of a big crowd today - can it wait?" she berkata without stopping her adorable dance.
"I'd rather it didn't - here." he took her flipper and gently rubbed her beak with his own. The crowd, as expected, went "Aww!"
Katrina, a little giggly, said, "What are anda doing?"
"Follow my lead!" he said. Katrina got it and nodded. Katrina and Kowalski did a cute little dance together as they carried on their conversation.
"What is it?" she asked.
"Well, anda see…" Kowalski started. "Katrina… you, marrying me… I'm just going to tell anda now, it's probably not going to be easy."
"I wasn't expecting it to be." Katrina said, a little surprised at where he was going at.
"Because anda know, I'm already sort of married - to my work. Our first rule around here has been and always will be 'The team comes first,' and my science… I'm on the brink of great discovery and I don't want to give that up."
"Kowalski, anda don't have to." Katrina said. "Both of us have different interests and priorities - I have my Muzik and literature as well."
"You do know that I often work late into the evening if I can't find a stopping point in my projects, atau from on a mission."
"And I like to listen to Muzik atau an Audiobook before I go to sleep at night." Katrina smiled and stopped her dancing. "Everyone has faults, Kowalski - part of Cinta is being able to see past those faults to see what is beautiful underneath."
Kowalski smiled and hugged her close, making the crowd go "Aww!" much lebih loudly than before. As he held Katrina in his arms, he remarked to himself that it wasn't hard to find what was beautiful about her.
