    "I... I'm peffectually fiune, Sho..." Wow, since when did Jo grow another head?

    His eyes crossed the Evil Emperor stumbled up, wobbling, and scowled. That moonshark! She did that on purpose! Unacceptable! Still stumbling to the tank Zurg held up a stern finger and shook it scolding. "Coco!" He called out in his best firm voice. "That wasn't very nice! You've been getting moody lately and I don't appreciate that! Tossing me is no way to welcome our guest!"

    But Coco had other ideas and she roared inside her tank, revealing her gaping, toothy maw. Clearly the moonshark was not thrilled.

    "Hmm... She's never done that before..." Zurg mused.

    "Maybe you shouldn't get too close to the tank," Jo suggested, tugging on his arm.

    She kept a respectable distance, hiding behind Zurg, but she really hoped Coco didn't try to hurt Zurg again. Maybe she should give him the ring again.

    "Is she close to giving birth, maybe?" she suggested. She couldn't think of any other reason Coco would be so irritable, besides her own presence. Maybe Coco was being territorial and possessive, smelling Zurg's scent all over the mechanic. If that was the case.... yaouch. Jo had better keep her distance!

    Well, Zurg was going to have none of that.

    "Coco, you can't keep doing that every time I bring someone here! I'm a grown man!" The tyrant whined. It was much like an eager son to a very overprotective mother. A very scaly, toothy overprotective mother. "I know, I know..." Zurg held up his hands, hearing the moonshark growl and grumble. "...but Coco, darling, the Vicki Vortex situation was entirely forced! How was I to know the woman would insult you and feed you fish! Oh, Coco, you wound me with your callous bites!"

    The moonshark quivered her lips in a snarl and pounded against the glass with her massive, meaty fists. Bam! Bam! Bam!

    "Yes, yes... Jo isn't like Vicki. She's better! Honestly! Here, let me show you." Zurg suddenly placed two firm hands upon Jo's shoulder and gently pushed the woman very close to the irritated Coco's glass. "Jo will feed you! Isn't that right, Jo?" The Evil Emperor smiled.

    Coco only kept her wide, unblinking eyes upon the woman and bristled her teeth.

    Jo squeaked when Zurg pushed her forwards, not liking how close she suddenly found herself to the irritated moonshark. To the moonshark that bit and slashed at Zurg who she actually cared about. So imagine what the moonshark would do to someone like her!

    "Um, hi, Coco?" she swallowed, doing a small wave. "I'm Jo...." Wait, she had no idea what moonsharks liked to eat. What in the cosmos was Zurg doing, just pushing her forwards like this unprepared?! "I-I could feed you something you actually liked? I don't really like fish either! I'm more of a meat person.... ehehe...."

    She hoped she'd said the right thing. She had better have said the right thing! She didn't want Coco to wrap those tentacles around her and squeeze her to death!

    Coco's gills only flared and she pressed her face even harder onto the glass, snarling and growling intimidatingly.

    "Ahahaha~! Don't be so rude, Coco." Zurg scowled from behind Jo, shaking his head at the moonshark. He quickly gave Jo's shoulders a reassuring squeeze and spoke from behind. "Don't worry! I developed an ingenious feeding system that will require you hardly any work at all! See that console over there?" He pointed with a talon.

    There was a command console not too far and a big, red button was in the center along with numerous smaller ones. None of those mattered save for the big one, of course.

    "Press the red one and the feeding tube looming above Coco will dispense her afternoon meal! I daresay she's quite hungry." He remarked.

    Easy peasy, right?

    Jo swallowed. She really, really hoped Coco didn't think she was going to be her next meal. Nevertheless, Jo crept towards the console and pressed the big red button.

    Maybe the moonshark would be more docile after she was fed....

    There was a high-pitched mechanical blare from above and the chute opened up with the groan of gears. Pieces of meat, fresh and bloody, fell into the tank with sickening plops and Coco's six eyes went in entirely different directions as they traced the bloody trails individually.

    Suddenly, out of nowhere, the moonshark reached up with her impressive talons and impaled a chunk, biting into it ravenously and chomping like the vicious predator that she was.

    ".....She used to have impeccable manners." Zurg winced, looking away a bit at the primal carnage. "Ugh... it's like I don't know her anymore! My darling Coco has gone rampant!" With a sniff and a brief moment of melodrama the Evil Emperor snapped back to his confident ego and he started to about face when the moonshark did the most darn thing.

    Coco eyed Jo, finished with her meal, and licked her bloody chops, ready for more.

    "Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh...."

    Jo's nose wrinkled at the fresh, bloody pieces of meat, wondering briefly whether Barry had provided Zurg with them as Coco began to devour the pieces hungrily.

    "It's the babies making her more hungry, I'll bet," Jo said, turning back to smile at Zurg as she relaxed. Hey, Coco wasn't so bad, after all. And Zurg was afraid that she was going to eat her! She was probably full after that me--

    "Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh...."

    Jo looked back at Coco, finding the way the moonshark was staring at her slightly unnerving.

    "Um, Zurg.... that is a good look, isn't it?"

    "Don't stare at her..." Zurg mumbled in her ear, grabbing Jo's hand firmly and pulling her along close. "She thinks you're a threat!" And with that they both went out before Coco could breach and consume Jo whole.

    Out of the scary moonshark chamber!

    And in a flash, they were out of there! "S-She really wasn't going to eat me.... was she?" Jo asked meekly, glad that they were gone. Maybe under other circumstances, things could have been different. Maybe....

    When they were in the safety of a corridor, Zurg slowed down and let go of Jo's hand. "Eat you? She looked at you like you were dinner, Jo. But don't take offense to that." He tried to reason with her. "She's... not quite herself, sadly. The hormones, you know. They're... you get the drift." The Evil Emperor let out a small, saddened sigh and shook his head.

    "Oh, who am I kidding..." Zurg mumbled, walking dejectedly with his hands clasped behind his back and his gaze forward. "Coco is becoming feral and there's nothing I can do about it. She'll go mad in that tank."

    "Well, sure, I guess females do get more emotional when hormones are involved." There had been a time when she'd been pretty emotional a couple of months ago, but she got over it with time.

    "Hey, hey." She touched his back gently, rubbing him comfortingly. "Maybe she just needs more space. Could you.... change her tank? Before you need to transfer her?" she suggested.

    "I can't change her tank." Zurg never felt so hopeless about a situation before. He always cherished Coco's company but it was time to set her free and let her roam around; make little Cocos and terrorize the gamma. She was too dangerous now, a threat. She had to go. That was the only logical conclusion.

    With a resignated sigh he shook his head and gestured. "No, she'll have to be transferred soon. I can't have her here anymore. She's a danger to my staff and myself. If she doesn't get released she'll end up becoming more destructive. Just how these things are. Now." He coughed into a hand and straightened up, fixing himself. "What shall we do now, hm? Anything else you're interested in, or... have you had enough fun for this morning."

    That's right, Jo had only spent the morning so far.

    Jo knew that to say more would only make the situation worse, so she kept rubbing his back and pressed her cheek against his arm. It would be hard, she knew, but she would help him and support him however she could.

    "Hmm? Oh! Well, I'm not sure. But I want to see everything there is to see!" she said determinedly, eyes alight with excitement. "Where to next?"

    Seeing Jo all excited to see more evil got Zurg to feel better, just a bit, and he rubbed his hands maniacally. Well, let's not disappoint the girl! There was evil to boast about and showcase!

    "Well, there's the torture chambers, the shipping bay, armouries, weapon stockrooms, and of course my throne room, the command chamber, the trophy room, mess hall, barracks--oh, there's so much to show! I really don't know where to begin! Hmm.. never knew touring would be so popular. I should capitalize on that if, you know, money actually meant anything here! AHAHAHAH!" The Evil Emperor laughed evilly, letting his dual-tone echo. Craters, that felt so good.

    "There's even the outside, but... it's not too spectacular. Just a barren wasteland poisoned with toxins." He said like it meant nothing, voice trailing.
