Zoo EscapeIt was a quiet afternoon. The Mabudachi Trio was relaxing at Shigure's house."Hey, guys," Shigure finally said, looking up from something he was working on. "Want to go to the zoo?""Sure, Gure-san!" Ayame said, leaping to his feet.Hatori eyed Shigure suspiciously. Shigure rarely ever suggested trips to go somewhere."You're being mean to your editor again, are you?" Hatori asked.Shigure looked at him with wide, innocent eyes. "Haa-san, how could you even suggest such a thing!"Hatori rolled his eyes."Come on, Tori-san, let's go!" Ayame said, practically bouncing up and down."You guys, this really doesn't sound like a good idea.""Tori-san, it's just a trip to the zoo," Ayame said. "What could possibly go wrong?"Hatori turned and stared at Ayame. "Remember the Hannah Montana concert?"Ayame waved his hand dismissively. "Tori-san, that incident was not that bad.""Not that bad?!

Hatori said, raising one eyebrow. "How can you not know?""Just listen," Ayame said, then put the whistle to his mouth and blew.Hatori opened his mouth to tell him not to blow a whistle in such a small, confined space, but then shut it. No sound was coming from the whistle, unless he'd been rendered deaf."That's weird," he mumbled."I know! Kind of cool, though, isn't it?" Ayame asked, beaming with joy.Hatori frowned. A thought was nagging at his mind. The whistle reminded him of something, but what?Ayame blew it several more times, each time for a longer period.After about five times, someone ran into the room, screaming in terror. That "someone" was Mitsuru, Shigure
