*in the shipping van/ left zoo 3hrs ago*
Captain Hammer pranced around the van singing "Everyone's a hero". It really got annoying after the 14th time. All the animals were sprawled out around the van with their paws/flippers over their ears, wishing they could be with skipper in the sound proof drivers cab.
Lexii turned to Dr Horrible "Does he HAVE an off switch?!?" she asked with bloodshot eyes. He shook his head and pressed his paws tighter over his ears.
Lexii nudged Rico with her elbow. "Got anything to make him SHUT UP?" she asked. Rico thought for a moment, smiled and nodded, then upchucked an item. Lexii smiled. "That'll work."
Five minutes later Captain Hammer was very quiet. He sat in the corner with his muzzle and paws duck-taped. Lexii tossed the tape back and forth in her paws, smiling slyly. Captain Hammer glared at her. All the animals cheered.
Once all was quiet, the penguins and the lemurs spread out all over the van to relax. Lexii set the duck tape down beside her and slouched down against the wall, her paws crossed over her stomach and her eyes closed.
Suddenly she sensed someone standing over her. She opened one eye to find Julien. He had that "wooing" look on his face. Lexii was already rolling her eyes.
"Sooooo," he said, adjusting his crown. "Everyone is being asleep now."
Lexii closed her eyes. "And?" she felt him sit next to her, a little to close if I might add.
Julien leaned in close and she opened her eyes irritably. "You wanna kiss a little?" he wiggled his eyebrows.
Without taking her eyes of Julien she picked up the duck tape and held it towards him. "You do know I WILL tape you to the outside of the van, right?" Lexii said flatly. Julien smiled nervously and scooted away from her quickly. She rolled her eyes and relaxed again.
Lexii was awakened by a sudden jolt of the van stopping. She didn't know how long she had been asleep but judging from her aching back, she figured it had been a while.
A few seconds later the door was opened and bright sunlight flooded into the trailer. Lexii shielded her eyes and saw Skipper standing on a littered road outside. Dr Horrible sat up and peered outside. "We here?" he asked groggily. Skipper nodded and said "Yep."
Everyone stood up and stretched and the penguins hopped out of the van. Skipper eyed Captain Hammer who was still duck-taped and asleep. "Uh what happ-?" he began. "
"heh. Long story" Kowalski said as Lexii walked over to Captain Hammer and nudged him with her foot. "Hey, wake up. We're here."
He half-opened his deep blue eyes and tried to speak then relized he couldn't because of the tape. "Hold on." Lexii said as she took a peice of tape in her paw. "This might hurt a little.."
Everyone winced and Lexii ripped the tape off.
