Arlene pulled Marlene back to her habitat, and saw Private and Mandy kissing there. These two noticed her presence and blushed as they left their kiss.
"Private" Arlene started "would you be nice and leave?" Mandy changed her blushing to an annoied look.
"hmmm, o-ok. bye Mandy" Private left, not whithout another kiss in the cheeck of his lover. He slipped away, and Arlene crushed the newly-made wood door behind her.
"you two are going to know the new rules, and follow them, ok?" Arlene was making a verry serious tone in her voice, Mandy giggled as he asked a verry obvious question.
"cause you're Marlene's "sister", right?" Arlene said, putting her hands in her hips
"well, since I pass 90% of my daily life in here, I'd say yes. Once again, why?" Mandy asked with a grin, not knowing the next comment
"I'm your mother" Mandy started a very loud laugh, but after seeing the otters' expresions, she sighted
"ok" Arlene continued "rule number 1: do not leave this place without telling me or you'll be grounded fo the rest of the day. rule number 2: no boyfriend unless I accept it. Rule number 3: if I find out that any of you have a "secret romance" you'll be gounded for a week. Rule number four: be here before 7:00 p.m., you need to sleep, I you obey this I may give you extra time saturdays and sundays. And rule number 5: don't complain more than 5 times a day for anything or you'll be grounded for the rest of the day. Any question?"
"me" Mandy started "in what does a grounding consists?"
"well, it consists in a basic groundng, no playing, no leaving, no having fun so you can learn." Arlene pointed
"I also have one" Marlene started her question "can I leave?"
"that depends, specify where?" Arlene asked, as she putted herself an apron and pulled out a broom.
"well, to the penguin H.Q.?" Marlene asked, not sure of the answer
"hmmmm, let me think, ok, but be back in ten minutes!" Arlene pointed, as Marlene left within many 'thankyous' and hops
"can I le-"
"no no no miss" Arlene pointed, as she threw a brom at the penguin "you'll help me clen the house"
"come on!" Mandy said angry, as she started to sweep the floor
"ha! there goes one, remember, only five complains or you'll be grounded" Arlene remembered her 'daughter' and Mandy let out a grumble, which made her mother giggle.
