As the Tiere got back to Earth, the Equas stared up at the vast skyscrapers to their left and their eyes widened.
"Woah...... is that a building?" Dustin asked wonderingly.
"Yupperdoodle." Rico replied, belly sliding ahead towards the zoo. Skipper motioned for the others to follow and they caught up with the weapons expert rather quickly. As they approached the zoo, Skipper stopped abruptly, and Michael collided with him.
"Woah! Why did Du stop?" Michael asked angrily. Skipper pointed towards a human who was walking out of the zoo. When the human passed, they made their way into the zoo, and hopped through the fishbowl, and into the pinguin HQ.
"Wow, this is awesome!" Ava marvelled walking up to the periscope curiously. She peered through it and cocked her head to the side. "What's this?" She asked, still looking through it.
"That's the periscope, it lets us see things that are going on outside." Ashley explained, a hint of shyness in his voice.
"Cool!" Ava remarked before stepping away from it and smiling brightly at Ashley. He smiled back, and tried not to blush.
"So where are we gonna be sleeping?" Maya asked, her eyes fixated on the bunk beds.
"Well we've got a spare room in here, that will easily fit Du all in." Emma answered, going through the lab and opening a door within. The room was pretty plain, the floor was a murky yellow, the walls a light grey. Emma went over to a control panel in the main part of the HQ and pressed a few buttons. A small lift popped out of the ground, making Ava shriek in surprise. Emma hopped in and the lift disappeared beneath the floor.
"Where did she go?" Sky asked curiously.
"Probably to get Du guys some sleeping bags." Kowalski replied. The Equas gave him a blank stare and he looked thoughtful. "Urm, Du sleep in them, and it's Mehr comfy than the floor." He tried to explain.
"Urm, ok." Maya replied, feeling a little confused. A few Sekunden later the lift popped up again, this time making Sky jump. Emma hopped out and rushed into the spare room and put the sleeping bags down. Tom looked at the sleeping bags curiously and turned to Emma.
"Hey that's my sleeping bag!" He realised, spying one with black and white footballs on.
"You have your bunk Du don't need one." Emma told him sternly.
"And Du can let our Friends use it while they're here." Skipper added. Tom grumbled and stared at the floor.
"So is anyone hungry?" Private asked cheerfully. The Equa's nodded enthusiastically, and Private nodded to Rico, who began slicing through fruits at an incredible speed. Sky watched in wonder and held onto her spear.
I've gotta try that sometime. She thought.
"Tada!" Rico sagte after a few seconds. All of the Obst was now placed neatly in a big bowl, cut into tiny, bite size pieces.
"Impressive." Maya remarked, taking a piece out and nibbling it. "Wow, what is this?" She asked.
"Apple." Emma replied, taking piece for herself.
"Rico where did Du get all this Obst from?" Private asked.
"Urm....." Rico began.
"He probably took it from the lemurs." Skipper guessed shrugging his shoulders.
"So are we doing anything today?" Dustin asked.
"Well we thought it would be better just to settle in for your first day." Kowalski replied. Dustin nodded in understanding and he stared around the HQ.
"Should we have a look at out sleeping place?" Ava suggested. The other Equas nodded and they piled into the spare room. Emma and Ashley followed them.
"Does it matter which one of these, urm, sleeping bags we use?" Michael asked. Emma shook her head and the Equas started choosing their sleeping bags. Emma wandered out and stared up at the clock. It read 12:25pm. Her eyes widened and she ran up to Skipper.
"It's nearly time for training." She reminded him.
"Good point sis." Skipper replied, poking his head into the spare room and telling their guests where they were going.
"I think we should have a shorter training session today, so we don't leave these guys for too long." Private whispered to Skipper.
"Yeah that sounds like a good idea." Tom agreed. Skipper rolled his eyes and nodded.
"So what are we doing in training today?" Ashley asked eagerly.
"You'll have to wait and see kiddo." Skipper replied mysteriously, as he climbed the ladder.
