A Seals' Flipper: Chapter 9: Reunion
Sleekwhisker rushes into her cave. “Aunt Shellsmile! Musclefin! Roughbark! Sweetblubber! Speedswimmer! I’m home!” She is greeted by shouts of surprise and delight, and is almost bowled over by 5 hugs coming from all different sides. The 2 eldest boys are trying to look tough but failing horribly as the tears of joy come to their eyes, Aunt Shellsmile is running off with Sweetblubber to fix her a hot drink (bawling loudly all the way), and Speedswimmer is howling “Sqeakster come back!” and flailing his little flippers. Sleekwhisker laughs and cries with delight at the same time. Never before has she felt so happy.
