“Ugh! I can’t believe this!” MaryRose complained as she dropped into HQ, where Marlene was washing dishes.
Skipper dropped in behind her. “MaryRose, I told anda not to go places...
“All right,” Kowalski said, shuffling the card deck. “We’re playing a game called ‘Obtenir Encore.’”
Skipper arched a brow. “What?”
“It’s French. Don’t worry about it,” Kowalski said. He dealt four cards to each player. “Dealer goes first and we alih counter-clockwise from there,” he explained, picking up his hand and sliding the deck to the center of the table. He studied his cards and placed an ace of spades face-up seterusnya to the deck.
After studying his cards carefully, Private picked a card and placed a four of diamonds on bahagian, atas of Kowalski’s...
"Well? What are they? Give us a list. Rico and I will gather them as soon as he comes back from gathering the last senarai anda gave him."
"Sure! Just give me a few moments."
"This had better work, Private. I still say it's a waste of time."

Author's Note: Here's the seterusnya one! Hope anda like it!
About two weeks had passed since the visit from Leo. Thankfully, the penguins treated me the same way as they would if they had not heard about Billy. I think Skipper ordered them not to say anything. However, I know they knew.

I breathed in the fresh scent of early morning....
Author's Note: Here's the seterusnya chapter. I decided to post both of them because (1) I had them already typed out on my computer (2) I didn't update the story for a while (3) I wanted to celebrate 2014! Also, this chapter is in nobody's PoV. The other chapters (except otherwise noted) will be in Nathan's PoV. Enjoy!
“Nathan didn’t always work alone,” explained Leo. “He had a partner –Billy.”
“What happened?” asked Private.
“I’ll get to that part soon,” berkata Leo. “Together, Billy and he were one of the best.”
He glanced at Skipper. “Perhaps anda know them, Skipper.”
