The penguins were standing outside, waiting for Alice to feed them. Skipper looked at the pool water, which was a disgusting green color. You couldn't see anything that was in the water. SP and Cowtails were inside, since they couldn't be seen.
Private's stomach growled. He sat down, dizzy. "I'm so hungry.."he whined. He hadn't eaten in two days! And his last meal had been very small. Skipper patted him on the back,"Hey Private, it's gonna be fine. Alice is coming, and this time, Rico WON'T eat your fish." He sent a glare at Rico. Rico shrugged, smiling nervously. The last time Alice fed them, Rico went fish crazy. Everyone but Private had eaten PLENTY of fish. Private tried to keep up the cute and cuddly act, but he slipped and slid across the ice. Kowalski tried to catch his foot, but didn't get there in time. Just as Private slid into the water, Alice walked by with a bucket of fish. "I thought there were four penguins!! Eh, who can keep count." She tossed three fish into the habitat. Private hopped out of the water, coughing.
Skipper and Rico had already eaten their ONE fish. Kowalski felt a little guilty when Private looked around. "Wh-where's my fish?" Kowalski sighed and held his out to Private. "Here, you can have mine." Private lifted his brow,"No!! I'm not going to eat someone else's fish!" Kowalski pushed it toward him. "You need to eat, Private!" Private whimpered,"But you have to eat too!" Kowalski sighed again,"Private, I had a bunch of fish last night for dinner. You haven't eaten in two days! Eat it!"
Private slowly took the fish out of Kowalski's flipper and ate it. Kowalski put his flipper around Private,"Feel better now?" Private smiled a little,"Sort of.." They both shared a smile and continued entertaining the zoo guests.
