Penfold marched back into Mayfair H.Q well and truly burnt from the whole dating experience, and flying too close to a setting sun.
Oh wait, that was Danger Mouse’s fault.
He put his feet up on the couch just as Professor Squawkwencluck followed him into the lounge area.
“Come on, tell me how it went” she said, offering Penfold a parcel.
Penfold opened it, and beamed at the contents
“It’s make-up Ice Cream” she explained, “I was going to share these with Danger Mouse after we had our falling out over how best to give you advice on dating, but since you’re the one who got the girl I figured you were more in need of celebrating with it”
“Thanks Professor, but I don’t think me and Scarlett are going to work out” Penfold replied.
“She seems to flip flop on things…she says she does’nt want me to be defined by heroics, yet then she got addicted to the dangers me and the Cheif got up to when confronting my evil twin. She boasted about saving the universe, no humble pie in the pit of her stomach at all…and then insisted we set about doing more heroics”
“An action starlet is always going to want a piece of the action” Squawkencluck replied, “The important thing you can do is ground her expectations a little, if not a lot..by engaging in little home comforts. Take some of this ice cream to her and she’ll cream at the sight of it”
“That’s a bit lude for kids telly Professor” said Penfold.
“At least you’re listening to me this time” the Professor said.
