Runaway

Life was always hard for the small blue jay, but ever since she was rescued and later adopted by Panchito and José it had gotten at least happier- she had reasons to hope, smile, laugh, and love again. She had loving new grandparents, uncles, and aunts, cousins...Even two Godfathers and Godbrothers! She will always love and be thankful for them in her life, but...

-

She never had any friends growing up. The kids in her school were either afraid of her cause she had magic or freaked out by her because she had two dads. It bothered her at first, but ignored it. At least she had her cousins still to play and talk with in school and would stick by her!

-

Or so she thought...

-

After a long and emotional day of being humiliated by her cousins and classmates, she returned home to try and cheer herself up before her parents came home. Sure school today was not enjoyable, but her life will turn around once her parents sign the permission slip so she can attend all four years of High School as an exchange student! They signed it before when she was twelve, they'd happily do it again!

-

Unfortunately...

-

“We need to have a talk about this program, mija.” Panchito said as he sat down beside his husband.
-
Feliciana frowned. "B-But Señora Ricardo promised me I get the Calisota slot that way I can stay with–”
-
“Feliciana, you’re not going!” José blurted out, his tone stern and slightly raised.
-
The blue jay’s eyes widened in disbelief upon hearing those words. “Wh-What…? Why?”
-
“What if Boris shows up?” Panchito asked, his tone firm, but also concerned. “Your Host familia--whoever it may be won’t be able to protect you from him!”

-

"We almost lost you last month from that encounter..." The parrot held back a sob as he trembled at the memory of almost losing his only child.
-
“Didn’t you hear that Señora Ricardo promised me I get the Calisota state?" The teen scoffed in annoyance. "And I checked- I get to be in Duckburg Middle School specifically! So I’ll most likely be staying with Zio Donald and even if Boris finds me, I'm friends with the Duck Avenger and Gizmo–”
-
Princesa, no means no.”
-
“That’s not fair!” She huffed with a scowl on her face, crossing her arms. “Zio Donald is letting Huey sign up–!”
-
“Donal’ isn’t your parent, Meu doce anjo.” José interrupted, raising his tone a little more, to which he hated raising his tone to anyone.
-
Feliciana slammed her first on the wall, tears in her eyes. “Neither are you!” She shouted before running off, taking Panchito's serape before flying off.

-

Where was she going? McDuck Manor. She gave her Godbrothers a heads-up text and told them not to tell anyone of her coming- not even Donald. The mansion was big enough for her to stay in and nobody would be the wiser!

      Huey, Dewey, and Louie were in their bedroom in the mansion, awaiting Feliciana's arrival. Louie was playing a video game on a beanbag in the corner. Dewey paced the room up and down near their bunk bed. Huey was keeping watch by the window, binoculars to his face.

      "Wonder what happened to make her run away like that?" Louie mumbled. "Pretty bold for someone like Feli."

      "Well, whatever happened, we need to be there for her," said Huey.

      "If it involves evil forces or an adventure with the Caballeros, I'm totally down for that," said Dewey, pumping his fist in the air.

      "There she is!" said Huey, drawing the gaze of his other two brothers. They rushed to the window and saw the Caballeros' flying serape approaching past the Duckburg skyline. The dropped everything and booked it out to the front yard to await Feli's touchdown. It was a good thing the house was currently empty.

        The flight on the serape wasn't long, but thankfully it was long enough for her to calm down and dry her tears so she would be able to explain herself to her Godbrothers.

        -

        After landing, she got off the serape, folding it and placing it over her shoulder, she smiled at the triplets. "Thanks again guys....Nobody knows about this, right?" She trusted them, but she just wanted to double-check.

          "Nah," said Dewey, leading the group back into the mansion. "The coast is completely clear. Everyone's either sleeping or out. There's no chance anyone'll find out as long as I'm in charge." He gestured to himself and sent a smug smile behind him.

          Louie rolled his eyes.

          They entered their room again and sat down around Feli. "Feliciana, if I may," said Huey, taking out a pen and notepad, "I'd like you to explain to us why exactly you left home. Mexico is quite a flight from Duckburg. If you're in trouble, you can tell us."

            "You know by saying you're in charge doesn't make any any more at ease?" She teased with a grin, nudging Dewey playfully as they all went into the triplets' room.

            -

            After arriving in the room, she took off her backpack and stored it and the serape into the closet. "Hm? Oh, guess it slipped my mind to tell you when I sent the text, huh?" She laughed lightly, scratching the back of her head.

            -

            "I'm not in trouble, just angry at my parents." She crossed her arms over chest. "They suddenly don't want me to be in the student exchange program just because of our run-in with Boris last month."

            -

            After years of being safe from the maniac that kidnapped and experimented on her years ago, he had found her and took her once again-- she was saved by her fathers and her hero Duck Avenger, but she was badly injured.

            -

            Though it didn't seem like that at all as she looked perfectly okay, but that was because of healing magic.

            -

            "There's no way he'd be able to find me again on short notice, plus Duckburg has two superheroes that I'm well acquainted with, so they have no reason to be so over-protective and ruin my high school years..." She had told the triplets of the near constant bullying she got throughout the years in school.

              "...that's it?!" said Louie, disgruntled as ever. "You flew across countries cause your parents are being dumb?!"

              "Louie!" Huey hissed. "Er, what Louie means is I'm sure there's a way we can work this out. Although your parents have a right to worry. They only want what's best for you, you know."

              The turning of the front door echoed through the halls. "Boys, I'm home!" came the very recognizable voice of Donald Duck.

              "Come on, he wasn't supposed to be back for another hour!" Dewey grumbled, getting up and ushering Feli to the closet. "We'll stall him! Hide in here!"

                "if they wanted what's best for me, they would have let me sign up." She scoffed with a roll of her eyes.

                -

                Upon hearing her Godfather's voice, the blue jay froze. "Why is he back so soon?!"

                -

                Quickly, she dashed into the closet-- which was cramped, but she found a way to make it work. Thankfully she was not claustrophobic or this would have been a real issue.

                  After securing Feli in the closet, the triplets rushed downstairs to greet their uncle. "Hi, Uncle Donald!" they said in unison.

                  "Whatcha doin' back so soon?" Dewey asked innocently.

                  "Well, turns out that big threat uncle Scrooge hollered at me about was nothing more than a rat in his Money Bin. I lured it out no problem. So I thought I'd come back and sunbathe." He rubbed his hands together with a relaxing sigh.

                  The triplets looked at one another while their uncle Donald wasn't looking at them. "Cool, uncle Donald," said Huey, "listen, I'd love to stay and chat about that rat, but I really have to go to the bathroom." He dashed back upstairs, holding himself.

                  "Er, okay, Huey!" Donald called after. "Anywho, if you boys need anything while I'm here, just-"

                  It was then his phone began to ring. Donald dug it out of his shirt pocket and answered. "Hello?"

                  "Twist me tartan, Donald, get back to the bin immediately!" came the voice of Scrooge, "that blasted rat is back with an army!"

                  The call hung up and Donald rolled his eyes. "Phooey, Scrooge needs me again. I'll be back in a tick, boys!" He waved and ran off.

                  Dewey and Louie flashed grins at him as he dashed out the door, then zipped upstairs when he was gone. Huey walked out of the bathroom, seemingly waiting for them.

                  "Huey, was that you?" Louie asked.

                  "It was the first thing I thought of," said Huey with a smug look. "An app for disguising calls plus my Impressions merit badge."

                  "Literally the best thing ever," said Dewey. The three of them went back to their room, and Dewey knocked on the closet door. "She's gone, Feli. You can come out now."

                    Feliciana breathed a sigh of relief before exiting the closet. "That worked this time, but I doubt it'll work a second time."

                    -

                    The hours went by, the four kept themselves entertained with television and just chatting about usual teenager things when interrupted by their stomachs growling. "Guess I'll go make us all a snack, least I could do." She then got off the couch and went to the kitchen.

                    -

                    She stopped due to hearing the front door open, quickly reciting an incantation to turn herself invisible she stopped what she was doing and hoped Donald would not come directly to the kitchen-- which was currently a little messy from the snacks she was currently making.

                      Donald entered the mansion again, tired, miserable, and hungry. Unfortunately, there was no more rat and so he and Scrooge had a battle of words instead, for wasting each other's time. Donald grumbled and sauntered towards the kitchen. I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse... he thought.

                      He entered the archway and quacked in surprise. The place was a wreck.

                      "BOYS!" he thundered.

                      Huey, Dewey, and Louie were quick to line up. They too saw the mess and balked at it.

                      "How many times have I told you guys to clean up after yourselves?" he scolded.

                      "But it wasn't-" Huey started to say, but was shut up by Dewey's hand over his beak.

                      "Aaaaa big deal," Dewey continued, "We'll get it clean, Uncle Donald. Promise."

                      Donald snorted, and trudged out, taking the yummy snack on the counter with him. "I'll be on my hammock if ya need me," he called after.

                      Once his footsteps were out of earshot, all three of them sighed.

                      "I don't know how much longer we can keep this up," said Huey.

                      "Relax, Hue. It's no big deal. Just as long as some of us keep their beaks shut," said Louie, shooting a dirty look at Huey, "we'll be golden."
