The ribbons were red and white. Big church bells were banging over head. Patricia was wearing a bridal gown known as the Johnny Clarice gown. It was the brand of bridal gowns that put Vera Wang gowns to shame. Marlene was her bride's maid, putting on the final touches.
"So how do you feel?" she asked putting the veil over her face.
"Whew excited!" she smiled. She hugged the otter with a thank you.
Rico was walking her down the isle, the bridal march playing, smiling as the other zoo animals watched her. She made a beautiful bride. Her bouquet was full of the best of elagent flowers. She could feel her face getting a little pink. Kowalski was standing at the alter taking in all her beauty. He had the red bowtie they wore on their first date, and smiled with a small gulp. Private was next to him as the best man, winking at Patricia. Skipper was in the front row crying a little bit. As she was reaching the front, she noticed that her feet wer

The next few days had gone alright. The news crew had finally stopped coming, and the penguins finally got their privacy back. Johnathon would normally pass by during the day, and Patricia would jump in his arms. The reading lessons had progressed as well. Kowalski had learned to sing the alphabet, and write every letter down. Kowalski had a very vast variety of words he already knew, so it was far more easier for him to put his words down in letters. He picked up the words "THE", "AND", "CAT", "DOG", and his own name very quickly. Patricia learned that index cards were the best tools to use on Kowalski. He learned very fast, and had fun when he got some time away from combat training to learn a new skill that could help the elite squad at the same time. He was proud of himself, but any time with Patricia was what he really wanted.
Julian had slowly taken a shine to the tiny penguin, and after about three days started to pronounce the name

Patricia woke up, from a very deep sleep. Her body feeling like every muscle was given a huge massage. She suddenly remembered falling asleep on the nice hotel bed. Then she remembered falling asleep while Kowalski was talking. Oops. The sun shone throught the little veil of the canopy. She looked through the fog of it, and saw that there was a tray of things on the bedside table. It had a piece of toast, hashbrowns, a slice of orange, and a large stack of waffels with a hint of syrup on the top, with a tall glass of milk. She pulled the fabric to the side, and swung her feet over the side.
"They had a buffet down stairs, and I thought you would like it." Kowalski was sitting in an armchair in the corner of the room, stiring a fish around in his mug of coffee. His smile very calm. She looked at him, like he was giving her a compliment. She looked at the tray of foods, that Kowalski had retrieved for her. She had to admit she was hungry. St

Kowalski jumped up to put in the suit card. It beeped, and they walked right on in. Inside there was a large room that had a ginormous television. They stared and looked wide eyed at the size of the room alone. This was the living room. There was no guessing what the rest was like. In the other room, there was a bed, that looked incredibly soft, with four large posts that held up a satiny almost clear white canopy. Patricia thought that was pretty neat. It was better than the ones that just looked like trumpet shaped netting for them. This one was actually shaped like a square. It looked like the room was painted entirely in babyblue and blacks with the occasional white. It looked very modern and jazzy. A dresser held a little bowl of chocolates that Patricia liked. They both took a candy, and put it in the others mouth.
The bathroom was pure white, except for the green bamboo, with the brown soil it was in. It was pretty. He suddenly push

Kowalski covered Patricias eyes as soon as they were outside of Central Park. Patricia felt a little more scared roaming the streets of New York without seeing, but she was sure that Kowalski wouldn't take her anywhere dangerous. The sounds of honking cabs, and people yelling at them were all aorund her. She got a little tired from walking around for so long, so Kowalski carried her around for a little while. Later she felt like she could walk again. She felt along the floor. It constantly changed between grass and concrete.
"Okay I'm going to pull you into somewhere totally amazing, but promise you'll keep your eyes closed."
"Just trust me." she did as told. Two warm wings slightly led her to the awaiting area. She slowly dragged her feet along the floor. She felt something plastic hit feet. She gasped at the sudden raise.
"oh sorry. Watch your step." He picked up the impatient penguin. He put her down on her feet. She felt the col

The central park was nice at night. The trees had been flowering in colors of pink, purple, and white. It was like they flowered just for her. The moon was glowing over head. They walked through the grass holding each other's hands. Patricia was feeling like she could have just walked forever, as long as he was with her by her side. He smiled the whole time, but didn't like seeing her holding the baseball in her flippers. It obviously bothered him. She stopped, and kept it out of sight. In no time they found a little spot by the edge of the big pond. In the distance, Patricia saw a pair of white doves in a nest cuddling with eachother. They looked up at the twinkling stars. Patricia was pointing her flipper, quietly drawing little lines in the skies
"What are you doing with your wing?" he looked confused.
"I'm just drawing lines in the stars. Sometimes I see things like hearts, and hourglasses."
"Hmm I like your creativity. That sounds rat

The Yankees stadium was huge in Patricia's eyes. Kowalski looked around to find the seats that they got on the tickets. They got the seats to the right side of the pitchers mound. It was a spectacular view, and easily able to see the players. The seats were sort of deserted so they didn't worry human wise. They sat down waiting for the teams to come out. Kowalski found an unopened bag of sunflower seeds in the seat next to him. They ate them together. Finally the players came out. First it was the Yankees which Patricia clapped slowly smiling. Kowalski had to clap for his home team. Next it was the Cubs. Patricia looked through some goggles that she found on the floor. There was her favorite team in the exact same stadium she was in. They walked their way down to their dug outs. There they were Marcus Mateo, Ryan Dempster, Geovany Soto, Koyie Hill, Andres Blanco, Alfonso Soriano, Kosuke Fukudome, even Ryan Theriot. They were all there!

Kowalski was waiting for Patricia to come back to their HQ. when he thoroughly looked through his planned events. They seemed so simple on paper, but they were going to be the most memorable moments of his life. There were so many. He hoped to remember each one. He opened the hatch that was behind Privates first prize fish. He pulled all the goodies out. The roses were still sparkling with hints of water from the florist who grew them. The Yankee tickets were the big things Kowalski knew Patricia would like. Skipper did know a few things about women and what they enjoyed, right? He looked at his reflection once again, trying to get his bow tie in a straight position. Red did look good on him. It was actually a very nice job that the boys did for him, though he still didn't like wearing human clothes. Of course Patricia would be more dazzling than himself, though. He could get a makeover twenty times over and twenty times again, but she was

Patricia was sneaking with Private by her side.
"So you like Kowalski huh?" he smiled.
"Well I guess you could say that." she shrugged a bit lazily.
"Well if you have any questions, you can ask me now."
"Umm has he ever had a crush on any girls before?" she blushed a deep rose.
"Not really. He's never seen a girl penguin before."
They jumped over the wall to get to get to Marlene's habitat. She walked slowly in the direction to Marlene's area, but Private pulled her behind a trash can suddenly, and put his flipper over her mouth as they watched Alice walk over to their direction. She stopped in front of the trash can looking around like she heard something. Patricia squeezed her eyes shut, waiting for the capture. Thank heavens she didn't catch her. He removed his flipper, and apologized. Understanding the reaction she didn't worry about it. They slid on their bellies till they arrived. When they asked Marlene, she was ecstatic to help.
The Coffee GodThe Coffee God behind the counter shuffles foot to foot, a dance of steam and espresso. Black painted fingernails, inch gauged ears and a gray striped sweatshirt, hood crooked on his back. There's a cigarette tucked behind one ear; it bobs and twitches with each step.
“Non-fat caramel latte,” he calls, just as he always does, part of a spell, part of a mantra, toneless (just a tuck at the end). I reach. He looks up.
The espresso maker hisses.
There's something like a grin, something like a spark, something like a shared secret linked eye to eye. When he passes over the drink (rough cardboard sleeve hot to the touch), he lingers. Our fingers brush, a shiver, a jolt, a ten-watt shock.
The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine. I follow him out the door.
Keep in Touch!
