Story Eleven - Ended February 9th

Sitting in the cold basement of his old, decaying castle, Count von Roo was drawing up a new and improved evil plan to return to the land of Neopia. He had been in a 200 year slumber and very much missed eating...erm, playing with all the little Neopets. He had to think of the least obvious way to meld back into Neopia. But he looked so much different than all the other Blumaroos. He needed a disguise... Author : Neopets Staff

...So he decided to visit his old friend, Kauvara. With a snap of his fingers he was in the back of her shop in her secret room. Count heard Kauvara coming and so he sat down. She opened her door and walked in. "Count von Roo!! What are you doing here? You know I don't really appreciate it when you come in my secret door, and I don't want you to give evil back to Neopia." "I've changed my ways!" Count von Roo said, crossing his fingers behind his back. "Calm down, my little feisty bat, you." "I don't want to, um, take Neopia back to evil! See? All I need is a potion. I would really appreciate it. That's all I want, I swear." Count said calmly. Kauvara looked him over suspiciously and finally said, "What do you want?" "All I need is a potion to morph to a normal Blumaroo. Any type of Blumaroo is fine. But a potion that will transform me for a few days. A week at most. Not permanently. That's all, will you accept? I'll pay good Neopoints," Count said. Kauvara stood silent for a few minutes and finally said, "Fine. Give me an hour." She stepped back into her store. Laughing, Count von Roo snapped his fingers and appeared in his castle. "Now, to satisfy my appetite for an hour. HA! Kauvara is a smart Kau. But, I'll soon have my disguise!" Count said, and went to his dungeon... Author : goodfaerie

...Meanwhile, back in Kauvara's shop. "I just know that Count Von Roo is up to something, but how do I find out? Hmm..." Kauvara said aloud. "Of course! I will give him the wrong potion! Instead of the morphing potion I shall give him a potion in which will make him tell the truth. If he really is changing his ways then I shall give him the morphing potion," Kauvara said. "However, if he is lying to me, then I shall not give him the morphing potion, but a sleeping potion instead!!!" Kauvara said evilly. Kauvara went into the other room, waiting the hour...

...after satisfying his need for a quick snack, Count Von Roo decided it was time to check back in with Kauvara and get his potion. He silently came through the secret door and saw Kauvara mixing three potions. Did he get a choice? Or was this a trick? The Count edged a little further back into the darkness so not to be noticed and he waited patiently for Kauvara's next move. After finishing the potions, Kauvara smiled with smug satisfaction knowing she'd be able to get her answers and possibly save all Neopia from the evil clutches of the Count. She looked at the clock on the wall...15 minutes till he was expected back. "All this work has made me thirsty!" she said aloud to the empty room, making her way to the front of the shop for a refreshing drink of water. The Count swiftly darted out from his hiding place and snatched all three potions and snapped his fingers and arrived in his castle in a blink. "I guess the Kau wasn't as smart as she thought!" he sneered. "Now...which potion to drink first?" Count Von Roo studied the three potions and decided to try the green one first...

...he slurped it down easily for it had a sweet taste that reminded him of delicious Cybunnies! He suddenly gagged and felt like taking a nap! When he awoke he felt very refreshed and noticed that there were still two potions to deal with! He sat up, yawned, and reached for the purple one which smelled very nice also! He took one sip of it and suddenly felt a tingling sensation in his stomach and on his tongue! He felt as if he needed to tell the guards he had gone to Kauvara's secret room! "I want to be normal!" he shouted aloud. "What the? Oh no, I am telling the truth!" He ran around the room holding his mouth shut but he still managed to scream things out he had done in the past and the evil things he wanted to do in the future! These were his secrets. "Kauvara! Thanks for helping me tell the truth! Erm, what did I just say?" The Count looked at the last potion... Author :sugar47591
Date : 6th Feb
...hmmm I must take the other potion before all my secrets are revealed," he said to himself. He picked up the potion, hesitated for a minute and drank it down. For a moment he felt nothing, but he was still muttering the truth to himself. Then he felt his stomach begin to bubble. He looked down and noticed a glow around him. In an instant he noticed he was blue. He muttered, "The third potion worked!" I must see for myself." He walked over to the corner of the room and came up on a mirror. "And now I shall see," the Count said laughing mischievously, "What! Oh, no! I can't believe I let myself be tricked." To the Count's surprise, his own reflection was very blue. He was now a blue Uni. "What's the meaning of this? I'll make Kauvara sorry for this," he said as he glared at his new body. Standing there he noticed himself hesitate when he started to turn toward the door. "Something's happening to me! It's almost like I'm beginning to admire myself like this...I always wanted to be a Uni... Author :mindy_gurl69
Date : 7th Feb
..."THAT KAUVARA!!" The count yelled. "She must've added something to this potion." He looked at his reflection again. "On the other hand, I am kinda cute...." Suddenly he heard the click clicking of nails hitting the stone. Someone was running toward him! "Ah, well," he thought, "they won't recognize this sweet face as mine...." Suddenly a small pink Zafara came rushing in. "Uh, oh sorry, sir," the Zafara stuttered. "What're you doing here?" The Count/Uni asked, turning on the Zafara. "I, I was l-looking for-I-I mean, um...nothing!" "Probably a spy..." the Count thought, partially returning to his senses. "Well, I'll squeeze out the truth!" He thought to himself. He galloped and leapt over the Zafara. "Now, now, sit down and have a drink!" he said, struggling to keep a nice manner in his voice. "Um, o-okay," the Zafara said, walking cautiously over to the rickety table the Count was standing by. "Here, why don't you have this?" the Count said, pointing his hoof at a half-full jar of potion. "Um, all right..." the Zafara said. She jumped up onto the table and began to drink. Her eyes went glossy, and she looked a bit woozy. "Now, I want you to answer a few questions for me..." the Count said, barely able to contain himself. "This will help me a lot, this Truth Potion..." he thought to himself. "Why are you here?" he asked the Zafara. "Because I was looking for Count Von Roo," the Zafara answered flatly. "And why?" he asked, a tad suspicious. "I need to prove to the world that he is not evil. I need to help him see that," the Zafara replied again. "And what is your name?" "Peeka." "And, if The Count said he'd work with you, could you do him a favor...?" Author :dragonsheart2001
Date : 7th Feb
...I dunno, I mean...what favour? Ah...who's asking?" "Well, I...I am of course!" Count clasped one hard hoof over his wide mouth. Peeka burst out laughing. "'re a funny fella! You're not the Count." "Yeah...I try. Anyway, would you do m-m-...the Count a favour?" The Count had to adjust to this change, he wasn't used to referring to himself in the third person. "As I said, it depends on the favour." The Count hadn't yet thought as far as the favour..."Well, you wouldn't be able to go to Kauvara and get a reverse potion? The Count has been so uptight with his change of shape, that he has been asking all around for this favour..." "Oh, I would love to work with the all-famous Count! I'm just a nobody trying to be evil, but all my plans seem to, well, back fire." "Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know what you mean," Count said, pushing Peeka along the grassy terrain, "Just get the potion and we can build up on that later..." Moments later, Peeka arrived at the door of Kauvara's shop. "Hello little fella..." Kauvara started. "Yah, yah, yah, I'll make this snappy!" Peeka said, rubbing at his new fake moustache, trying to give off an evil image, "Get me a reverse potion, and make it quick! I can't stand around all day!" "How impossibly rude..." Kauvara muttered under her breath, giving the little Zafara the potion. "I got it! I got it!" Peeka came running up to Count with the potion, but he didn't see the rock ahead. He tripped over the rock and the potion fell from his hand. "NOO! Not now!" the Count said, galloping for the potion... Author :frary

...The bottle of potion smashed on the ground and the Count started to lick it up, but it was all mixed up with dirt and leaves. "Eww!" Count von Roo exclaimed as he spit it back out, "No, I didn't mean, I mean, oh I just want the stupid potion! My plans are completely ruined. And it's all..." He quickly turned his head around to the little Zafara. "YOUR FAULT!" he yelled, "This is all your fault!" And even though Count von Roo was a Uni, he could still make his fangs appear. Peeka figured out that this was really the Count and she began to run away in fear of his fangs, but it was too late. "I sure needed that snack," the Count said, "And since I don't have fingers to snap, I'm going to have to walk to Kauvara's shop." Meanwhile, Kauvara was looking in her crystal ball...she knew he was on his way and she would deal with him accordingly... Author :buttercup2442
Date : 8th Feb using all the help she could get. Quickly, she called up the Uber Earth Faerie and made a deal. "If you help teach the Count a lesson he'll never forget, I will give you an ultra-rare item; one unknown to other pets of Neopia. It will make you the most popular Faerie around." The Uber Earth Faerie was excited by the offer, and quickly made the deal. "But how can I help?" she asked. Kauvara smiled evilly, and leaned closer... Back at the castle, the Count was preparing to eat Peeka, who was feebly making excuses. "NO! It was an accident I swear! HELP! SOMEONE HELP!" The Count just laughed and licked his lips. But when he leaned over to take a bite out of the delicious Zafara, his new horn got in the way! "Drat!" he cried. "Now I can't eat until I've changed back! And then I'll make that foolish Kau pay..." It was great luck for Peeka that he didn't think of another way of eating him-the way a Uni would never consider-by spearing him on his horn. Those 200 years must have made him a little slow... At the shop, Kauvara and the Uber Earth Faerie were preparing their plans and were almost ready when, an hour ahead of schedule, the Count waltzed in. The Earth Faerie and Kauvara gaped at him as he grinned and said... Author :190187

"Nice shade of blue, eh? Didn't do too bad a job, Kauvara old friend!" The Earth Faerie sprung forward and gripped the Count's horn in both hands so he couldn't move and folded her wings. "Now. Tell me exactly what you intend to do, Mr. Count." The Count spluttered and, although his new horn was hurting a lot, managed to grit his teeth and stammer, "Very sorry, very sorry, I'm very sorry about all this...I want, no! Drat this potion! Please let me go and I will eat... noooo!!! Blast it, when does this thing wear off?" Kauvara smiled, held up a small glass bottle and handed it to the Earth Faerie who was trying to hold the count still. "Now, this little potion here is a vegetarian potion. It stops certain people liking eating and liking foods...mainly Neopets, ham and kippers. It also makes you change back to an ugly black Blumaroo for good." The Earth Faerie paused to unscrew the bottle and the count tried to think of a way not to let the truth potion take hold of him. "Ugly? me? Well I am quite! Hey! Look, please, I couldn't live without the taste of Shoyru on my lips in the morning, Kau at lunch and Zafara at night for supper....Please let me go!" But the Earth Faerie was strong and she held the Count still while she poured the bottle down his throat. The Count shivered, swallowed and changed to his real shape, then licked his lips and said "I feel like a nice veggie burger...mmm!" Satisfied with that, the Earth Faerie let go of the Count and he ran out of the shop, screaming "You can't get me! NEVER......!!!!" Kauvara and the Earth Faerie never saw the Count again, although they did see a Blumaroo who looked suspiciously like him advertising vegetarian Koi at the Neopian world food fair. Although the Count will always be at large, the world is safe from his evil ways for now at least.
