They are penguins. They are birds. One’s looking to one side, and the other is looking to the other side. They’re holding hands—beautiful! They’re friends.
By the looks of it they’re in a very nice place, like Nicholas’s mother’s place. They have dinner. They dress up and go into town. They do like to swim very much. At certain times they fly away. We don’t know whether they have company, other penguins around. They’re doing nothing. They’re holding hands!
There are some rough looking parts around. One penguin is female, Dimitra, and one is male, Vlashi. They come from a farm. They have a home in the farm. They grow sultanas and take them to the bazaar. They’ve got three homes—one on the farm, one in the village, and one in this place.
They stay together and look around. They may be falling in love! Val thinks they have a family. To Nick, they look like twins. They can go straight into the sea, like friends. A lot of birds do nest. They might go for a swim and then build their nest.
They get married and have 7 kids. Vlashi came from an orphanage in Ohio. Dimitra waited for him. They went hand-by-hand to the church to get married and have 7 children … so far!!
They sing, ca, ca-ca-ca-ka-cah. They’re walking and laughing. They’re holding hands and they are very happy. One day Nick’s mother saw them separated. It made her sad, so she gave them food and brought them together again. They had a party and Vlashi sang a song, and Dimitra danced the Charleston.
