We arrived home on Monday evening, several of us were woozy from exhaustion and had difficulties in keeping our eyes open. Our colleagues awaited us on the terrace with fresh soup. We reported to them what happened with us, ate dinner then, headed to our beds and dozed off. Terkina was returned on Tuesday afternoon. Just when she observed Tarzan she hastily galloped to him, jumped on him and embraced him. She greeted everyone then, we escorted her to her troop surrounding the tree in which Tarzan's treehouse is located. Every member scurried to her, Harambé could hardly wait to get close to his mate. He strongly clasped Terk and kissed her. Following this, he stared deeply into her eyes.
"Terk...," he addressed her.
"Yes," asked the unseeing ape girl.
"I found another female and she's expecting my child," announced the silverback.
Tarzan's best friend became paralyzed, opened her mouth but didn't make any sound.
"I was just," started Harambé, but wasn't able to finish since in that very moment his female intensely and roughly pushed him back, sat on his belly and while holding him by his shoulders began shaking him violently while screaming at him and crying.
"HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME, YOU SENSELESS KETTLEHEAD!? AFTER ALL THAT WE'VE BEEN THROUGH YOU JUST TAKE IT AND CAST IT AWAY!? I WAS ONLY AWAY FOR A SHORT TIME..."
The ape felt Tarzan's hand on her shoulder.
"Terk, stop. Listen to what he wants to say, he started something," said Tarzan.
The acutely tearing Terkina who felt close to being sick slowly crept off of his male and continued sobbing. Harambé sat up.
"I was just joking. I didn't cheat on you, I'd never do that," replied the male trying to comfort his mate.
"It was a cruel joke," responded the female haltingly. "I don't care what you do, do whatever you want," she replied while crying.
"I'm sorry. I went too far," said the Kerchak-like male then, embraced Terkina who stopped shedding tears.
"Where is my mother," she asked still shaken.
"She joined Gobu's band, by the way, you're going to have a little half-sibling," announced the male.
"And who is the father," enquired the gorilla girl.
"Do you wanna know," replied Harambé while grinning.
"I hope it's not you," said Terk dolefully whose eyes began welling up with tears.
"No way! Gobu is the father," declared the silverback happily.
Terkina's face became disfigured with disgust.
"Look at the bright side! Your mom won't pester us with the grandchild matter, she will have offspring who will have kids," explained the male.
We celebrated the successful search-party at our place. We also invited the gorilla band. We had a party during which Kerchak briskly did the disco.
