The group made its to the mall 冰激凌 parlor. All the while Mickey was trying to be as romantic as possible, 由 holding hands with Minnie, who was having to lug the large rabbit through the mall.
When they reached the 冰激凌 parlor Mickey, Donald, and Goofy went in to place the orders while the others sat down at a large 表 outside. The three of them soon came back out, carrying several 《冰雪奇缘》 treats. Mickey immediately noticed that both seats 下一个 to Minnie taken 由 Scrooge and Webby. Donald and Goofy saw the angry look in his eyes. Goofy whispered, “Don’t be mad Mickey. Look 你 can sit right across from ‘er.” He 说 as he pointed to the empty 座位 across the 表 from Minnie.
But Mickey did not pay any attention. He marched over to the table, took one of the empty chairs, and shoved it between Minnie and Scrooge’s seats. “Mickey Mouse! What on Earth are 你 doing?!” she yelled.
“I just wanted to sit 下一个 my girl.” He 说 trying to sound innocent.
“Well, if 你 wanted to sit 下一个 to me so badly 你 should have asked politely that Uncle Scrooge 或者 Webby move.” Minnie 说 angrily.
“Huh, sorry”, Mickey replied.
“It’s alright.” Scrooge said, “I’m sorry that we took both the seats 下一个 Minnie.”
Nothing was 说 several 分钟 finally Mickey turned to Scrooge and said, “So I hear that 你 think 电子游戏 are nothing but a waste of money.”
“Aye, nothing but a waste of time and hard earned money.” Scrooge answered
“Well ya know I got Minnie’s bunny-rabbit 由 playing games and nothing else!” Mickey 说 proudly.
Scrooge replied coolly, “Sorry Mickey, but 你 are not going to convince me that video-game are no a waste. So let’s just agree to…”
Mickey interrupted, “They are not a waste!” He yelled, as he waved his hands.
For a moment Mickey forgot he had a double-scoop 冰激凌 cone in one hand. When he began to wave his hands the two scoops went flying, one landed on Minnie’s chest and one on Webby’s head.
“Oh Mickey! Look what you’ve done to my dress!” Minnie shouted, as she smashed her 冰激凌 cone on his head.
“Oh No!” Webby yelled, “Mr. Mickey got sticky stuff all over my hair and bow!”
Scrooge ran over and tried to wipe the 冰激凌 off her with a napkin. “Don’t worry dear we’ll get ye all cleaned up.” he assured her. Then he 说 to Mickey, “You know if I’d wanted her this sticky, I would have let her go for a swim in syrup, rather than the money bin this morning!”
Hearing that, Minnie rushed over to the table. Scrooge, along Donald and Goofy now, were all trying to clean the ice cream off of Webby’s head, with napkins and a cup of water. “Don’t worry Uncle Scrooge, I’ll take Webby into the ladies’ room with me. Hopefully I can rinse at least some of that sticky 破烂, 垃圾 out of her hair in the sink in there.” Then she picked Webby up, “Come on honey let’s go get 你 cleaned-up.”
As Minnie, Scrooge, and Webby left Mickey with ice cream dripping off his head he called, “Wait Minnie, I’m sorry I didn’t mean…”
“I don’t want to hear it!” Minnie yelled back.
“By way the Mickey if 你 ruined Webbigail’s bow, I’ll be sending ye the bill for her new one!” Scrooge called.
After they left, Donald came up behind Mickey patted him on the back and said, “Way to go Romeo.”
Mickey soon realized that everyone was gone, and he was standing alone in front of the 冰激凌 parlor. He was disgusted with himself. He couldn’t believe he’d become so obsessed with video-games, to the point that Minnie, and now his other 老友记 had been driven away.
The afternoon of the following day, while Minnie was getting ready to leave for McDuck Mansion, to coach Webby on her pageant routine, the phone rang. When she answered it 雏菊, 黛西 was on the other end, “Oh my gosh!” 雏菊, 黛西 shouted excitedly, “Congratulations Minnie!”
“Congratulations? For What?” Minnie asked, feeling very confused
"Now don’t pretend 你 don’t what I’m talking about, it’s all over the celebrity gossip websites. 你 can’t hide your secret any more!” 雏菊, 黛西 replied.
“Celebrity gossip websites?!” Minnie exclaimed, “Why on Earth would I be on those?!”
“Well, it is pretty obvious.” 雏菊, 黛西 said
Minnie didn’t reply, because she was now racing over to her computer to try to find these websites. She soon found the gossip websites 雏菊, 黛西 mentioned. Before clicking on the first one she tried to reassure herself, “Oh, 雏菊, 黛西 never reads things carefully. She likely just saw some actress 或者 singer that looks similar to me.” She 说 to herself.
But as soon as she got on the website she saw that unfortunately 雏菊, 黛西 was right. She stared for long time, in horror, at a 照片 of her and Scrooge playing in the money bin together. Then she scrolled down and read the description; The Richest 鸭 in the World, Scrooge McDuck has got himself a sugar-baby. “Oh No!” she 说 into the phone.
“Oh Yes!” 雏菊, 黛西 said, “Minnie 你 can’t keep hiding your sugar-daddy. 由 the way now that it’s out, that 你 two are together, do 你 think 你 can talk him into giving me about two million dollars? I need it to fulfill my life-long dream of becoming a fashion designer.”
“We are not dating!” Minnie yelled, “This was obviously done 由 somebody who doesn’t like Uncle Scrooge and is trying to make him look bad.”
“Yeah right!” 雏菊, 黛西 说 haughtily, “Now quit trying to hide it. And tell me, can 你 get that two million for me?”
“No!” Minnie snapped. Then she looked at the clock on her computer and saw it was getting late. “Oh dear, I’m late. I’ve got to run.”
Over at McDuck Mansion, Scrooge and Webby were waiting for Minnie to come. Webby was watching a 迪士尼 Princess cartoon, while Scrooge sat down in his easy chair to read the newspaper. “Curse me kilts!” He shouted when he saw the photo, which graced the front page, of him and Minnie kissing, and the headline that read: Duckburg citizens were shocked to find out over the weekend that Scrooge McDuck and Minnie 老鼠, 鼠标 are dating.
“What’s wrong Uncle Scrooge?” Webby asked
Not sure exactly what to say to her Scrooge quickly answered, “Oh… um… nothing dear.”
Mickey had been up all night trying to think of how he could apologize to Minnie for his behavior at the mall the 前一个 day. After being out shopping all morning he arrived at her house in the afternoon, with a large bouquet of 花 and a box of chocolates. He knocked on the door several times and got no answer. Then he noticed that her car was gone. “Dang-it!” he 说 to himself “I guess I’ll just leave the 花 and 糖果 on the porch with a note.”
As he walked back to his car, to get a piece of paper and pencil to write the note, he saw Minnie’s newspaper lying in the middle of the yard. He picked it up, planning to put in the porch also, but he saw the front-page 照片 and headline. He stared at for a few 秒 then said, “I knew it! They’re dating!” Then he threw the 花 and chocolates in the garbage can and drove away. He was planning to find Minnie and have a word with her; and he had an idea of where he would likely find her.
Minnie arrived at Mcduck Mansion only a few 分钟 late. After ringing the doorbell several times it was finally answered 由 Duckworth. “Good afternoon Miss Mouse. So glad 你 could make it. I believe Mr. McDuck is up in his study and Miss Webbigail is in her room. If 你 excuse me I’ll let them know you’re here.”
Then Duckworth left and went up stairs. Minnie waited in the entryway for them to come down. All the while she thought about that awful 文章 she’d read. She wondered who would stoop that low. She remembered that Webby had noticed Victoria taking their 照片 at the luncheon. Her thoughts were quickly interrupted 由 an excited Webby yelling, “Hi Miss Minnie! I’m ready to practice for the pageant!”
She turned and saw that although Webby was excited Scrooge looked very distraught. “Hello Minnie.” He said, Glad to see you. I don’t suppose saw the hideous newspaper headline about us, did ye?”
"Um… No. But I saw it on the celebrity gossip website.” She replied, “If you’re talking about the one where they say I’m your sugar baby.”
“Burst me bagpipes!” He shouted, “That’s even worse then the headline! I’m ruined! No one will want to do business with me, if they believe I fritter away my money on awful things such as sugar babies!”
Feeling confused Webby asked “Uncle Scrooge how can Miss Minnie be a sugar baby? She’s not a baby 或者 made of sugar.”
Scrooge and Minnie both started to laugh. “What’s so funny?!” Webby asked angrily.
Still laughing Scrooge said, “Um… I’ll explain it to 你 when you’re older dear.
