Halloween Mayhem (Part 3)
"Koko!" I yelled. "Koko!" I asked the other pets & they had seen Koko Monkey. All I got was "no!". Now Koko Monkey had grown but he was still the baby of my menagerie. He even still carried his pacifier which he used when he was confused or afraid. I raced around the Great Hall calling. All Hallows Jack organised his minions - disgruntled though they were - to check all nooks & crannies in the Great Hall.
The open inner door drew Hoppy Tiger's eye so he headed through it. Next thing I know, Hoppy is pulling on my hand & making "Shh!" gestures with his paw. Intrigued I followed Hoppy to a scene to both warm & break any mother's heart.
Koko Monkey sat on the floor outside a steel cage. His arm was through the bars offering his pacifier to another ape inside the cage. A very sad looking ape.
All Hallows Jack had noticed our exit from the Great Hall & strolled after us. When he saw what we were looking at, he grew angry. He turned on Mad the Scientist who had entered from the other end. "I told you 'no experimenting on animals'!" he roared. Mad blustered that he wasn't experimenting on the little creature. The mother of the little creature had been both an experiment & a friend but she had died. Mad did not know what to do with the baby so he kept it in a cage.
Meanwhile the baby and Koko were bonding - touching one another, making grunting noises & trying to play with one another although the bars kept getting in the way.
All Hallows Jack asked if I would have the baby. When I nodded, he turned to the Scientist & said "I will deal with you later!" Then he opened the cage & enticed the baby to leave it. The Scientist said that the baby liked bananas. So I offered a banana. Koko came to sit beside the baby which turned out to be a gorilla - a little girl gorilla. I called her Honey.
With Honey on my hip & Koko holding my hand . the rest of the pets & I went home.
