Blowhole was washed up to a beach of America. He woke up in pain. He tried to look through his right eye, but he couldn't see any thing. His right eye was blinded. He couldn’t get up and he couldn’t move a muscle. He had a head ach and he was very sick. Then a few fishermen came over, they held him up by his tale and said, " This pretty Dolphin will be worth a few bucks wouldn't it!" Then the other fishermen said " But look at its eye, shouldn't we do some thing?" "No we don't have to, let nature take its course. I mean a Dolphin just washed up in New York City!" They violently put him in a box and put it in the back of their truck that wasfilled with fish and crabs. He wanted to get out but he felt pain all over him, and had nothing to do. The smell of the sweet fish annoyed him. Blowhole was starving, he hadn't eaten any thing for days! He could hear noises from outside. He was frightened, unknowing what was out their or what was going to happen to him.
Doris had already told the whole Pod to look for Blowhole. They have been searching different places every day. But no one had the guts to go searching pass the rock, the human world, except for Doris. "You can't go and I won't let you go.” Mary then paused. “I know how much you love him but we searched every were and there has been no sign of him. Doris, some times you just have to face facts." After her mother said that she started to get very cross. "And look I'm only trying to protect you. Why don't you just give up on.." Then Doris could not take it any more." MOM! I KNOW YOU ARE TRYING TO PRETECT ME BUT WHO IS PRETECTING BLOWHOLE?! He's out there, alone, injured with only one eye to see the world with. Oh, I remember that scar across his eye and it was horrible. And one more thing, I will never give up on him! He did every thing for me, he cared, and once he said that I was the one keeping him going when he was sick or sad and I don't care what you say but I need him and he needs me." "I guess I have no choice." " NO choice for what!?!" " I have no choice to let my daughter go. You really love him than go. I know you will be safe but you must promise me one thing…" Mary then started to cry, she looked down and then looked Doris strait in the eye. " You must promise me that you WILL come back to the Pod, with or with out Blowhole." Doris smiled and said, "Thank you Mom, and I will come back with Blowhole and I will see you again" "Be safe, and I know one thing. That nothing can stop my daughter Doris." She hugged Doris and Doris went. Every one wished her good luck, and she also said all the dolphins who think she is crazy will regret what they said.
It had been a 1hour trip for Blowhole on the truck and he was dying. Just then the fishermen stopped the car, and Blowhole could hear them talking." We want to talk to the owner of this aquarium." The staff said, "Ok, I will see if he is available" Blowhole was curious of what was happening and he leaned forward to see if he could peek through the cracks of the box. Then he heard the owner of the aquarium coming. (He still didn't know what an aquarium was.) The box was starting to fall off the truck and as the owner arrived the box fell on the ground and the lid opened and Blowhole looked up and saw that scary looking face. "OMG! How did you guys know I needed a Dolphin in this aquarium! I will give you any thing for this dolphin!" "Well we will sell him for… $200" The owner looked at him in a funny looking face. The other fishermen said, "Well it was hard to find a dolphin near New York!" The owner said "Fine, but what happened to his eye? He looks quite sickly as well. You will have to pay to get that eye fixed though. And that should be about $50." "OK commissioner you have got your self a deal" Then the fishermen took the money and went back in their truck, leaving Blowhole, and went off. Then a few more staff came and picked up Blowhole and took him in a room. It was the sea life vet. They put Blowhole to sleep and they tried to fix his eye.
He woke up, on a soft bed with wires connected to him, it was night and he felt better and looked in the mirror. He saw him self with his eye, they seemed to have not fixed it. There were some fresh fish in front of him and he ate a lot. Then some staff came in and carried him in a big glass tank that looks like it hadn't been used in ages. He was placed in and he realized that the water wasn't salty, and he over heard people saying that they put chlorine in it. He had no idea what that was but he just hoped they haven't poisoned it. The people left some live fish in the tank for him to eat. The place was quiet and all the people were gone. Then an otter came in Blowholes habitat and she said " Hi! I’m Caroline, Marlene's cousin if you know who she is you'll know what I'm talking about! She lives in the central park zoo now. After that fight, the humans realized that we couldn't be in the same habitat together any more… so any way you seem to be new around here? What’s your name?" "I’m Blowhole and I really need to get back to my Pod! And asks Doris too…” Blowhole sighed and turned around. "Look, Blowhole it’s not that bad here! You get free fish and clean water tanks! Plus now I'm not the only mammal here! I know you will love it! I got to go get some sleep, good night! Tomorrow will be a big day for you, humans love new animals!" After Caroline said that she went and Blowhole started to cry.

"Excuse me, have you seen a Dolphin with bray skin and you know, a bit like me but with a scar on his right eye." The star fish said " Sorry but no, well I hope you find him because around here there are a lot of humans that try to pull you out of the sea and who knows what happens after that!" " Thank you." Doris swam away and was getting worried that Blowhole was dead! She swam around the statue of liberty and then she heard a voice….
"DDDDDOOOOOOORRRRRIIIIIISSSS!!!!!" a voice from far away and it came closer and closer. It was Kowalski and before she could say any thing Kowalski was hugging her. Kowalski stopped hugging and said "Hi ddddoris! I missed you, I thought id never see you again." "Kowalski! Stop chippy chatting and lets go before the zoo opens!" shouted Skipper. "Doris I like you to meet Skipper and Rico they are my team mates." "Oh so this was the Dolphin lady who you hopelessly fallen in love with. Make it quickly because if Alice realizes that one penguin is missing she is gunna go nutso!" said skipper "COOcooo" said Rico spinning his flipper around his head. Skipper and Rico pretended to leave but actually hid behind a stone and spied on him. "So Doris, I’m still open if you need me." Kowalski said looking at Doris romantically." Sorry but I’m busy right now.." "Would you like some nice dinner just together.. Tonight?" "Kowalski, lets just be friends OK?" "Please? Just one night together?!" "Well first I have to know why you are here!" then Kowalski aid in a rush "I just came back from a battle with Hans, he is a evil puffin who fails to win no need to worry. I mostly came here to be with you." Then Doris started a long talk with Kowalski about just being friends.
Mean while Blowhole was woken up by flashes of light and the noise of people talking. He was freaked out! He hid in a cave that was in his tank until the people went. He stayed there all day. Then he realized that the tank water was going down slowly, and eventually the tank had no water in it. The humans came down and put him in a box and took him in to a new habitat, but this habitat had a hoop in the middle and it didn't have as much space as the other one. The people were starting to leave and then the same person with a scary face and a nice suit came in front of Blowholes habitat and started to talk to an other guy who had a scary looking whip in his hand. "The only reason I wanted a dolphin was so that the people will be able to watch shows and pay for those tickets, now are you sure you can train Flippy in a week?" The man with a whip said "Of course, leave it to me! Soon you will see Flippy jumping through rings of fire, and money in your hands!" "Now good luck with the training!" The man with the suit went, then a woman with a bucket full of fish came up to Blowholes habitat and threw one fish through the hoop. Blowhole was hungry but still was scared of jumping through an object he didn't know but he followed the fish through the hoop and landed in the water. Then the woman gave him another fish. Then Blowhole realized that the hoop was harmless and continued to jump through it to get fish. Then he started to get really tired and leaned back on the side to rest. Then the man whipped Blowhole as hard as he could. Then the hoop went higher. Blowhole was now scared of jumping that high. The man whipped him again. Then Blowhole had to jump. He tried his best but he failed and then broke the hoop. The man shouted and even the woman. No fish and more pain. This continued for 4 days. Blowhole had no idea what was going on, he missed his pod, and missed Doris…
20th February 2007
There was 3 more days of whipping and Blowhole hated the humans. Today Blowhole found out the mans name. It was Greg Thomas. Blowhole hated him. Today Greg came back and the woman and then they put the hoop on fire. Blowhole understood that the humans couldn't under stand what he was saying but he tried to talk to them " Why are you making me do this? I don't want to risk my life jumping high through a hoop that is on fire! Please listen to me! What is you had to jump through a ring of fire? Please I have no strength left in me. Please." The humans still didn't under stand what Blowhole was saying. “Bad Flippy!" said the woman and the man whipped him again. Blowhole refused to jump through a ring of fire, he was being whipped all day… He finally couldn't take it any more and jumped through. He burnt the tip of his fin, but it wasn't that bad. Blowhole ate the fish in tears.
Doris met Kowalski again and had to do the lets just be friends talk again. She was really upset and decided to go to central park zoo and ask for the penguins to help. She left the ocean, and used the sewer to get to the penguins. Doris, learned how to read human language while she was with the dusky dolphin Pod. She finally reached central park zoo. She dragged her self to the penguin’s habitat. Then the alarm in the HQ went off. INTRUDER INTRUDER! Skipper, Rico and Kowalski all got out of bed and went in to karate mode. “Men get ready to fight, I knew Hans would come back!" The Rico said "KABLEMO-!" Then Doris fell through the hatch. "False alarm, its just Doris." Rico said "KABOOM?" "Sorry Rico, no kaboom. " "Awwwwww" "WAIT! Unless Doris is one of Hans’s secret spy’s… Rico keep the Kaboom out just in case." "Yay!" Then Kowalski said in an angrily voice "Skipper don't be silly! According to my calculation, Hans wouldn't send a female dolphin on a mission like that! So Doris why are you here? Did you want to have dinner?" Then Doris said, "You know what never mind! All that is in your mind is for me to marry you, but I'm in a different situation and I already know you won't understand. You will just get up set." Doris sadly left. She looked back once but she knew that Kowalski wouldn't help and that the penguins have an evil puffin to fight. She knew they were too busy to be helping her problems. Back at the HQ Skipper was talking to Kowalski, "Kowalski are you a mad man! Do I have to say it again! SHE IS JUST NOT IN TO YOU! We are solders, not flirty penguins! We have a puffin to fight!" Rico said "Yeh yeh!" "Sorry Skipper I just can't control my self proply when she's around. Ill just go back to the lad and finish up building the diabolical shrink ray 2000.203." Rico said "Say what now?" " We know that no one understands what science guy says! Now go back to sleep and that’s an order! Do you comprende?" "Ok" Rico went back to sleep with his doll, but skipper was still concerned about why Doris came to the HQ.
23rd February 2007
Blowhole was stressed. He had been doing his best jumping through rings of fire. It was still morning and Greg has still not arrived yet. Then Caroline came over and said "Hi Blowhole. I see that your stay hasn't been really good, but I’m here to make you feel better!" " NOT BEEN REALLY GOOD!? I HAVE BEEN WHIPPED LIKE MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED TIMES AND I HAVE BEEN FORCED TO JUMP THROUGH BURNING HOOPS THAT ARE REALLY HIGH! NOT JUST THAT BUT A WEEK AGO I WAS SEPARATED FROM MY FAMILY AND DORIS!" Caroline tried to calm him down." Clam down, it's not the end of the world! I have to go, it's opening time." Caroline got scared of Blowhole when he started to shout and she went, and Blowhole stayed in his habitat. His habitat was closed until he was trained. The woman and Greg came over and lit the ring on fire and put the hoop higher! Blowhole knew that was impossible! Greg kept on whipping him, Blowhole got so angry with him! Blowhole smacked his face with his tail and then bit his hand with his sharp teeth! Greg then backed up until Blowhole calmed down. That's when Blowhole realized how strong he could be. He can be stronger than a human. There is no need to be afraid of a human because a human with out his weapon, is weak. Blowhole refused to jump through the ring of fire that day, and Greg's hand started to bleed so he went home after taking away Blowhole’s dinner.
