Almost immediately, we noticed a hot-pink bow sticking out of the mess of wires and scrapped metal. Next to it, R2 was running into the junk, trying to topple it over, to free the furry fuzzball from a destructifyingly disastrous death.
3PO and I ran over, and helped pull the bow out. We tugged for what seemed like thirty seconds. Suddenly out came KoKo, good as new... well, almost.
"Why're you lookying at me like that?
"Ummm... Koko... your eye... "
She put her hand on an empty eye socket. No eye. She felt around her face. No eye. She stuck her finger into her eye socket and swirled it around. No eye.
That day, at approximately 3:00, 4:00, or maybe even 2:00, a piercing scream filled the air: "My eye! My eye! Where's my cute button eye!?"
"He he he... what dat?" C3PO asked, pointing to the ground. A single black eyeball, which looked a lot like a black marble, rolled out of the pile of junk.
"My eye!" Koko picked it up. She looked at me. What she said next I did not intend.
"Sew my eye in!"
"You got to! Sew my eye in!"
"Doopdee w00t!" (I wish R4 were here to see this)
"I've never sewn an eye in before..." What'd she think I was, a handmaiden?
"Trust me! It like regular sewing. Find a needle and thread! Anything! Please..."
I picked up a small shard of metal and a long string that happened to be there. 3PO and R2 watched as I got ready. I strung the needle... I picked up her eyeball, held up her head...
"Wait!" KoKo screamed.
"Waaaaaaaaaaah!" (What now?)
"Just remember, If I scream, or anything, make sure you ignore me. All right?"
I picked up the stupid chimp's eyeball and started sewing. It didn't take too long. Before long, she was as good as new.
At that moment, there was a tremendous explosion as the earth shook. Well, actually, it sounded more like an elephant. Trees in the forest behind up began urooting themselves. Whatever it was came closer.
"Waaaaaaaaaaaaah!" (What now?)
"Run away, run away!" 3PO hobbled away as fast as he could. We followed. The plane, or half-the-plane, would be the safest place to be. We ran faster. The sound seemed to be getting closer... closer... closer...
