2: Far, far way up north, in the coldest, most brutal place in Antarctica, Ruby and Paco Ice just brought home their baby, Sapphire. She was the cutest thing, and very cuddly ‘n’ fluffy. Sapphire was a penguibear because her mom was a penguin and her dad was a polar bear. She grew very fast; a birthday every day!
4: On Sapphire’s fourth birthday, Ruby went out to get a special fish as a present, which meant leaving Paco alone to take care of the toddler. Paco had never been alone with Sapphire before. Ruby took more time than she was supposed to, so you can probably imagine what was going on at home.
6: Paco was going crazy! Sapphire was playing pranks, joining gangs, being mean to babies, and even clogging all the toilets. Paco tried everything he could to calm down his child. He disciplined, hit, yelled, and tried to show Sapphire a better time by being safe. Nothing would work! He just ended up picking up after Sapphire.
8: Soon, Sapphire was bored of the minor problems she created, and decided to do something really naughty! She was going to leave to find her mom. That very dark evening, Sapphire set out without telling anyone. The next morning, Ruby came home to find Paco alone, calling for his extremely misbehaved daughter. Ruby was so mad that she went from a cute penguin with rosy cheeks to a steaming red thing that didn’t even look like a penguin anymore; more like an alien.
10: Ruby asked her friends, Moosy Brown, Frosty Seal, Teenille Wolfyhowl, and Bruno Wallyrus to help look for Sapphire. They split into teams of two to search. Ruby stayed home watching the news, while Paco called every zoo in the world. All of a sudden, Ruby jumped up screaming because she saw that a penguibear was found in South Korea.
12: It was Sapphire! She was running around stealing as much as she could to survive. She then thought she was going into a garbage dump to find shelter, but she actually went into a toxic waste dump. Sapphire saw the neon green liquid flowing down the hill, and decided to lick it to see if his tongue would glow in the dark. Instead, she grew twenty times her normal size, and fell into the ocean!
14: Two days later, a giant, fuzzy penguin was reported destroying Tokyo, Japan. It was screaming. “MAMA COME BACK!” The government was trying to tie the creature down, but she was too big.
15: MAMA COME BACK!
16: Sapphire was transported back to his family, and was still too way too big to live an average life. So Ruby’s friends persuaded the humans and everything else on the world to taste the toxic waste. Everyone and Everything lined up from all around, and grew twenty times their size. Sapphire and her family grew up with a perfect life and lived happily ever after.
