Pluma happily leaped out the water. "Hey, guys, what's up?" She detto brightly. Kowalski shushed her and pointed down, on to the HQ. Pluma looked down and then up. Private rushed up to her and whispered, "Skipper and Margaret want to be alone right now," Pluma stared at him. What? She mouthed, but she knew what Private meant.
She silently left the pinguino habitat and walked slowly to a small bush. She hide inside it and sobbed quietly. Then, a shadow made it's way toward her. What's wrong? It asked. Pluma looked up. "Oh, hey, Shadow," Pluma looked down again. "It's nothing," Shadow knew better. "Please, just tell me," She begged. Pluma sighed. "Sk-skipper is d-da-d-date-" Pluma sniffed and wiped away a tear. Skipper is dating someone else? Shadow guessed. Pluma nodded.
Suddenly, Shadow changed into a black rose. What's wrong, Shadow? Pluma asked though her mind. Look! Pluma looked and saw Marlene. Quickly, she slid the rose into her feathers. "Oh, hey, Marlene," She struggled to sound happy. Marlene saw right through it. "What's wrong?" She asked, forgetting about being jealous. "Skipper loves someone else now," Pluma answered.
Marlene felt her cuore quicken. Did Skipper Amore her now? "Who does he Amore now?" She asked eagerly. Pluma looked annoyed at Marlene's eagerness. "Not you," She snapped, sounding pleased that is wasn't Marlene," Marlene looked disappointed, but she wiped it away. She patted Pluma's back.
"I'm sure he still likes you," She detto reassuringly. Pluma traced a cuore on the ground with her flipper. "I don't think so, Skipper and Margaret are getting pretty serious," She retorted. "What's the likability he'll go back for me?"
Marlene thought for a while. "You know, anything is possible, even Skipper loving te again," Pluma looked up and cracked a small smile. "You really think so?" She asked. Marlene smiled brightly. "ANYTHING is possible!" Pluma stood up. "Even Skipper seeing that he belongs with me?"
"Sure," Marlene answered, all jealousy and hate washed away. Pluma smiled and laughed. She hugged Marlene. "For some reason, that truly makes me feel better,even though it might not happen," Pluma cried happily. Suddenly, Marlene understood something, she didn't know what, but she understood.
"We could be friends," Marlene suggested. Pluma nodded and laughed. "Of course,"
