The 3 penguins began to chercher for clues around the habitat. Rico had found something near the telescope.
"Ey! Look ova' ere'!" He shouted to Kowalski and Private. They both waddled over.
"Looks like there is a spilled substance of some sort." Kowalski ran his flipper over the orange substance, and licked it. "Mango."
"Maybe Skipper was drinking a mangue beverage and then spilled it when he saw Marlene collapse." Private assumed. "But wait, Skipper hates Mango. Why would he be drinking it? And the cup isn't shattered!" Private then questioned himself.
"Wait...... Mango? Thats the main ingredient used in most of the Lemur's smoothies!" Kowalski exclaimed.
Julien sat there on his throne, La Reine des Neiges solid.
"Julien! toi there? Julien. We need to ask toi something." Kowalski said.
Julien's eyes slowly moved to the direction Kowalski was in, without moving his head.
"Oh, hello penguins. Lovely day, is it not?" Julien nervously said.
"It's a marvelous day, if toi ask me!" Private said. Kowalski slapped him in the back of the head. Soon Private remembered what they were there for.
"Julien, have toi had any récent mangue smoothies lately?" Kowalski asked.
"No!! I do not know of what toi are talking about! I didn't do it, be leaving me alone!" Julien yelled out, as if he burst like a pastèque, melon d’eau hitting the ground.
"Whoa whoa, Julien. calm down. It was just a question!" Private said.
"Okay fine!! toi win! I'll tell toi what happened." Julien said.
Julien walked into the manchot, pingouin habitat, removed the small plate, and began to climb down. He looked around. No manchot, pingouin in sight. He took a small sip from his mangue smoothie he had made earlier.
"Hello?? Penguins! I need to be borrowing a back scratcher!" He a dit out loud.
No Answer. Julien put his smoothie down near the security system wires, and began searching. Unfortunately he found no back scratcher. Julien, unsatisfied, reached his hand out to grab the glass in which had his mangue smoothie in it. His hand barely missed, and he ended up knocking the smoothie down.
The substance of the smoothie fell onto the wires, and they began to electrocute and smoke. The security cameras began to go berserk. Julien began to freak out, and grabbed his glass. Fortunately, it had some smoothie still in it, and Julien was happy because of that.
Suddenly, he heard someone. He put his glass down and slowly made his way towards the exit. But it was too late. Skipper had come out of the lab, with his flippers glowing green.
"Ringtail! What are toi doing in here?!" Skipper yelled out, with a psycho look on his face. He began to walk over to Julien, raging in anger. Julien, stepping back, accidentally spilling the smoothie par stepping on it. Then, just as he was about to reach him, he stopped, and went blank. He had remembered something. Skipper quickly looked at the clock, and then grabbed the telescope. He moved it around a couple times, and then stopped it, and had a shocked face. Julien, seeing the moment to escape, had already gone. He hid behind a trash can near the manchot, pingouin habitat and saw Skipper come out, with something in his hand. He had jumped over the brick mur that bordered the zoo.
"And that is what happened." Julien said.
"Thanks, Julien." Kowalski said. The penguins left the habitat, and went back to the HQ to inspect the wires.
"He was right. He did spill mangue on the wires. That explains the security cameras." Private said.
Kowalski noticed the door to his lab was opened. He went inside and was shocked with what he found.
"What is it?" Private asked.
"An unknown substance is what it is. It's spilled all over the table." Kowalski answered. "Maybe that's what Skipper had in his flipper when he left. Julien mentioned that it looked like a small container." Kowalski then inspected the substance once more, and then realized what it was. "Lothelium. The main ingredient in toxic medicine. I know what Skipper is doing." Kowalski said. They took off.
Not Part of the story:
Yes I know, Lothelium is not real, and neither is toxic medicine XD (I think.) I added it for whats going to happen soon in the story.
