Everyone was gathered together in the main clearing outside of the palaces. Julien and Marlene were huddled together, with their paws grasping each others, waiting for Kowalski and Private to arrive with the rocket. Marie had momentarily gone back to her palace to gather some subjects. Savio was there in the clearing as well and he had been tied into a large knot that he couldn't get out of by himself. Some subjects had come and taken Zera away and torn her dress to shreds. Marlene herself was no longer wearing her gown. Dave, Rico, and Skipper were approaching the two.
"I just got word from Kowalski. He's and Private are on their way with the rocket. We'll all be going home soon," Skipper announced.
"You mean you guys will be going home," Marlene said.
Skipper looked back at her and said, "What? You're coming too Marlene."
Marlene shook her head sadly and said, "I can't Skipper. I'm married to Julien now. I can't leave here now."
