A short while late, Jewel, Tiago, Savannah, and Jasmine finally made it to the new Blue Macaw Bookstore where Blu had moved back to. Inside the bookstore, Blu was laying in his cage, fiddling around with his old bell.

Jewel and her kids were trying to talk Blu back into coming home.

"Come on, Blu. You're over reacting!" Jewel said, trying to open the cage door with her talons but Blu was so fearful, he placed a padlock on his cage from the inside and was refusing to come out. "The jungle is not a bad place! Its great."

"Jewel, kids, for the last time, I am never going back to the jungle." Blu said for the final time, placing his wings through the cage bars and hugging them. "This cage is my home now."

"But what about us, Papa?" Tiago inquired, trying to use a famous puppy dog look to convince his papa to change his mind. "We need you."

"Blu, you can't just abandon us." Jewel sternly said, getting a little angry about Blu's pathetic fears. "We're your family, Blu. I'm your wife, these are your children, and you are my mate. Now if you love us, you will stay with us. Okay...Okay? Blu?"

Jewel then noticed Blu had no been listening to one word he was saying. He was listening to his Ipod and the sound through his earphones were blocking out the sound of every word Jewel was saying.

"Argh!" Jewel got frustrated and beckoned for her kids to follow her.

They all flew outside of the bookstore and over to the roof of the bookstore.

Tiago was the first to ask his mother what was going to happen in this situation. "Mama, what are we gonna do about Papa?"

"I don't know, honey." Jewel replied, sitting down on the roof and placed a wing under her chin to think.

"I got an idea!" Jasmine squealed, happy that she might just have the perfect idea to get Blu out. "What don't we break into his cage, tie him up, and then we can force him to stay in the jungle."

"Jasmine, that's silly." Jewel said, but since they had no other ideas, this might be the only way. "We'll come back to that idea later."

Later that day, Jewel, Tiago, Savannah, Jasmine all had a meeting in the Samba Club with Nico, Pedro, and Rafael. They were all discussing ideas on how to get Blu back into the jungle.

"I say we just tie him up and drag him back!" Nico suggested, having the same idea as Jasmine.

"Nico, we'll call that: Plan B." Jewel sighed while she tried to continue thinking of ideas on how to get Blu out of that cage and back into the jungle. "Well, he may not like the jungle, but I know one thing he cannot resist."

"And what would that be?" the duo Nico and Pedro asked.

Jewel beckoned for everyone to come close together and began to whisper her excellent plan to get Blu out of his cage.

Back at the bookstore, Blu was still locked in his cage, fiddling around with his various things and toys. While he was messing around in his cage, Jewel, Nico and Pedro were ready to do their part.

Jewel flew down near Blu's cage, and she was looking even more beautiful than ever! She caught the attention of Blu and began doing a little dance while batting her eyelashes and putting on a pretty face.

Nico and Pedro took it on their cue to sing.

There's something 'bout the way you look tonight,
There's something 'bout the way that I can't take my eyes off you.
There's something 'bout the way your lips invite,

"Jewel, you look..." Blu was on the verge of drooling. "Amazing."

"Like what you see, lovehawk?" Jewel giggled, spinning around a couple of times to amaze Blu even more.

Maybe it's the way that I get nervous when your around.
And I want you to be mine
and if you need a reason why,

Jewel danced a little more and got right next to the outside of Blu's cage and resting her wings on the cage bars.

"Jewel, you look amazing." Blu complemented, walking towards the cage bars from the inside of his cage.

It's in the way that you move me, and the way that you tease me,
The way that I want you tonight,
It's in the way that you hold me, and the way that you know me,
When I can't find the right words to say,
You feel it in the way, you feel it in the way.

"Tell you what, Blu..." Jewel smiled, moving her wing through the cage bar and placing it onto Blu's wing. "Open this cage door, and we can have a little kiss."

There's something 'bout how you stay on my mind,
There's something 'bout the way that I whisper your name when I'm asleep Oh girl
Maybe it's the look you get in your eyes.

"Jewel, that is very tempting..."

Maybe it's the way that makes me feel to see you smile.
And the reasons they may change
But what I'm feeling stays the same.

"Hahaha!" He laughed, quickly jumping back in his cage, knowing Jewel's plan the entire time. "Nice try, Jewel!"

Nico and Pedro stopped singing their song and were in shock that Jewel's plan did not work. They watch Jewel angrily kick something away, frustrated that her plan to win Blu over did not work. I guess it's time for another idea.

Well, that didn't go to plan did it? Any of you authors think Jasmine's idea is good? Or, if you want you're welcome to submit your own ideas to get Blu back into the Jungle.
