7. Back In Business

Two mornings after Morgan's promotion, Superquack was home washing the dishes. Despite the two-day difference, they hadn't done anything at their new ranks yet.

Just then, the phone rang. Superquack grabbed the phone off the countertop and picked it up. "Hello?"

Several thousand miles away on Tutu Island, Mr. Tutusymbol answered, "Hello. We have a new mission for you."

"Great! I'm coming," Superquack replied.

"How soon can you get here?" Mr. Tutusymbol replied.

"I'll leave at 12:30," Superquack replied.

"See you there," Mr. Tutusymbol replied. "I'll call Morgan right away. Good-bye."

"Bye," Superquack replied, and started for his room. Three hours for assessing the situation and packing up.

At 12:39, Superquack and Morgan wove their way through the same web maze. At the end the same luxurious jet picked them up and headed for Tutu Island.

As the jet cut through the sky, Superquack and Morgan sat on two seats aside from each other.

"This is Mr. Tutusymbol speaking," Mr. Tutusymbol said over the intercom 30 minutes into the trip. "Would you care for more Pina Colada?"

"Don't mind if I do," Superquack replied. He set the cup on the table next to him. The cup retracted and returned seconds later refilled. "Thanks."

"You're welcome," Mr. Tutusymbol replied. "Currently 79 degrees fahrenheit on Tutu Island. Perfect weather for the fight." Morgan smiled. "Please buckle your seat belts. We are beginning to land."

Superquack grimaced. Wait, no airdrop?

The jet began to drop. Superquack could see the lush terrain coming up fast. Then he heard the engines cut, and the jet plunged, nose-down, into the sea. As it hit the water, it converted into a submarine.

The jet-sub maneuvered through rock formations as it sailed under the island. Finally it stopped in front of an underwater docking bay. They were still under the island floor when the submarine settled to a landing. Klunk! The docking tube attached to the jet's door.

"Hello, Superquack," said Mr. Tutusymbol as the door opened. "Hello, Morgan. Welcome back."

Both stepped into a waiting monopod. Morgan took the seat in front of Mr. Tutusymbol, and Superquack sat between them on the 270-degree bench. "Nice to be back, Mr. Tutusymbol," he said. The monopod's door closed, and carried the three across a track, across a lagoon, through the jungle, and into the island headquarters. Two bands clamped to the elevator and brought it upward. An elevator opened and they stepped out of the monopod. Mr. Tutusymbol remained seated as he told them they'd be briefed in a conference room at 3. "C-Wing, Room B-972."

"Got it," Superquack replied.

"See you there," Mr. Tutusymbol replied. The elevator closed. Superquack dropped the suitcase on his bed and stopped at the window to watch the scenery. Morgan was close behind, and put an arm around her new master.
