"So, Po..." Monkey said as he sat at kitchen table next to Po, Crane, and Mantis, "What's up with you and Tigress? You two have been getting awfully close lately."

"What? Pshhhh, what are you talking about? Don't be ridiculous, Monkey." Po replied bashfully. He felt a rush of blood to his cheeks. It was a good thing his fur was covering it.

"Oh, c'mon Po! We both know you two have been getting pretty close lately. You're training together almost every day." Mantis said.

"Yeah!" Crane added, "And I saw the way you were eyeing her last mission."

Po laughed nervously and rubbed the back of his head. His heart was starting to beat at a million miles per minute. "I dunno what you guys are talking about. We're friends, that's it."

"Yeah, sure. And Viper doesn't like Crane." Mantis blubbered.

"Wait, what?!" Crane said, shocked.

"Hold on, you didn't know that Crane? I thought it was common knowledge." Mantis said.

"No, that wasn't common knowledge!" Crane said, leaning over the table and yelling in Mantis's face. "Why didn't you tell me earlier?"

"Like I said, common knowledge." Mantis replied nonchalantly.

"How in the world would you ever think that's common knowledge?!" Crane shot back angrily.

"Hold on, does that mean you guys have known about me and Tigress for a while too?" Po wondered.

Crane and Mantis stopped arguing and everyone at the table turned to face Po.

"Oh, yeah," Monkey said, "We've known that for quite some time now."

"Okay, well, what do you guys think I should do?" Po asked. "Should I just ask her out?"

"Kiss her during training and act like it was an accident!" Monkey blurted out.

Mantis laughed. "Hell yeah! Just don't let Master Shifu catch you or he'll beat your ass."

"Seconded," Crane said. "There was some Tai-Lung-lookin' guy that came a few years back and Master Shifu performed the Wuxi Finger Hold on him when he proposed to Tigress."

"Well, what the am I supposed to do then?! I don't want to die!" Po shouted at his unhelpful friends.

"Oh, I know! Meditation and chill!" Monkey said.

"No. Hell no." Po replied.

"Yes yes yes!" his friends chanted.

"I'll only do it if Crane does it with Viper!" Po said.

"What?! Why?!" Crane asked angrily.

"If you won't do it, then it's not a good idea." Po said thoughtfully.

"I like where this is going," Mantis said mischievously. "Do it, Crane! I wanna see Po get his head smashed in by Tigress when he tries to cop a feel."

Crane considered the idea for a moment before speaking. It was going to suck, but Po would have to do it too. He thought it might be good for him to confront his feelings for Viper as well.

"All right, fine. I'll do it." Crane said.

Mantis and Monkey cheered.

"Damn it..." Po muttered under the excitement of his friends. He thought Crane wouldn't have had have the moxxie to say he would.

"Yes!" Monkey shouted as he laughed, "Things are getting spicy!"

"You're only liking this because you aren't doing anything!" Po raged.
