out of it and into the Gerain Lobby.

"Thanks," Zapp replied, then added, "I'll be seeing

Kif, You stay behind. This is just a meeting for me and, ummm....
Just you can't come." Zapp roared, "Invite a friend over or
something, just make sure to get my mail."
Captain," Kif sighed. Then Zapp left.
Kif was alone, he decided to call up Amy. He walked up to the video
phone and punched in Amy's number.
Amy's face appeared on the screen.

thing is to change out of this!" he said to himself. He walked
up to his suitcase and took out his blue shirt and borrowed some
pants from Zapp's suitcase. The pants were way too big on him, since
the weight difference between him and Zapp, but, so was the shirt
baggy on him to, so he didnt think much of it, he just put a belt on.
while later, there was a knock at the door. Kif walked over and
opened it. And there was Amy, just standing there. Kif immediatley
wrapped his arms around her and started hugging her. Amy returned the

Amy started a life long story. Then 2 hours later, Ericka came back
with the lobsters.

looked at the lobster. Zapp hadn't let him eat for quite a while. Amy
started opening her lobster tail. Then she looked at Kif, then at his
plate, then at hers. "Kif, aren't you going to eat?" Amy
guess I should, shouldn't I," Kif answered.

Kif replied. Then he rushed through the door.
the mail office was only a couple blocks away, Kif decided to walk.
He started mumbling somthing about Zapp and the stupid mail, but

like he didn't have a clue Zapp was there, much like he always did.
Then he turned the corner and gasped. He could recongize that pink
sweat suit anywhere.
HOW COULD YOU?!" Kif yelled.
