Story Seven Hundred Sixteen Ends Friday, January 29

Jeppy wiped his brow. His arms ached from kneading dough all day. His Honey Crumpets made with real Buzz Honey were known far and wide, so demand was incredibly high. This kept the poor green Buzz busy for endless hours and countless days. It was time for a much needed vacation.

"Jeppy, are you almost done with that batch?" His assistant Maria called out from the front. The young and peppy Kacheek manned the sales counter while Jeppy toiled away in the back.

"Yes, I just need to frost them," he sighed. The Buzz pulled out a cooled rack of crumpets and placed them at the frosting station. He knew he was very tired, but it was weird to him that the honey topping looked strange, like it was a little TOO sparkly today.

"Jeppy! Hurry please!" Maria yelled, and Jeppy could hear the grunts of impatient customers and hungry stomachs. His investigation into the sparkly honey would have to wait, he had customers to feed.

Jeppy slathered the topping on his Honey Crumpets and shuffled the tray out to Maria. There were way more customers then crumpets in this batch, so angry eyes were upon him as he reached the countertop. He could see the despair on Maria's face as well.

"Ok, who's next?" Maria called out, and a mob of Neopets lurched forward with their Neopoints in hand. After a brief frenzy, the Honey Crumpets were gone and Neopoints littered the counter. Some Neopets were so famished, they ate the Honey Crumpets right there in the stores, while others took their delicious parcels away with them.

"Uh, Jeppy? What's going on?" Maria questioned, and the exhausted Buzz struggled to look at her face, which was aghast. Jeppy looked out into the crowd and he couldn't believe his eyes...

Jeppy gasped. All of the Neopets who had eaten the Honey Crumpets in the store were turning a shining, brilliant golden color. He watched the crowd transform, one by one, until every last Neopet had turned gold.

"How could this happen?" Maria exclaimed. "Did you do something to the Honey Crumpets to make the Neopets change color?" she demanded.

"N-no, I..." Jeppy stammered. "Well, they DID look a bit unusual when you took them from me to give to the customers. They were, well, sparkly. But you didn't give me any time to investigate!"

"Sparkly?" Maria asked him with a worried look on her face. She opened her mouth to continue questioning Jeppy, but she was interrupted by a chorus of howls and screeches. "The customers!" she cried. Maria and Jeppy turned from behind the counter to see that the mob of customers were pushing their way to the front again. This time, they did not look hungry or impatient. They looked furious.

"Explain what these crumpets just did to us!" a sparkly golden Lupe growled at them. "I can't go to work looking like this; I'll be a laughingstock!"

"Yeah! You two have some explaining to do!" a Uni with a newly golden mane cried. "My owner had JUST painted me pink!"

Jeppy opened his mouth to explain, but no words came out. He had no idea how this could have happened. He looked down at his hands. He had made hundreds of Honey Crumpets with those two hands, and nothing like this had ever happened before. What could have gone wrong this time? Suddenly, Jeppy noticed that his hands were glowing ever so faintly...

Jeppy swiped a glob of the honey onto his finger and rubbed it a little bit, inspecting the sparkling stickiness. His hand began to sparkle even more than before. He decided there was only one way to know what exactly was going on. With no hesitation and no further explanation, he shoved the golden honey into his mouth.

"Jeppy! No!" Maria yelped, but it was too late. Jeppy had already began his transformation. Within seconds Jeppy had turned a dazzling golden color.

"Hmm...how peculiar," Jeppy sighed. "That was the *exact* same feeling that you get when you're painted with a paintbrush, but how could this be?" Jeppy inspected his body and became fond of his new color. "Well, this sure beats paying millions of neopoints to be golden, doesn't it?" he joked to Maria. She let out a small, nervous laugh.

Suddenly, the door flew open and a dark figure began pushing his way through the crowd of angry Neopians. A police badge was slapped down onto the counter...

When Jeppy looked up, he saw a fierce looking Ogrin with a scar under his left eye. He was wearing the uniform of the local authorities, making it clear the police badge belonged to him. Before the Buzz could open his mouth to ask what was wrong, the officer spoke first.

"You! We've traced the line of counterfeit Golden Paint Brushes to this very store, and I think the room full of Gold Neopets speaks for itself, eh?" He shook his head before slamming on angry hoof on the counter. "What do you have to say for yourself?"

"I don't know anything about this, I swear!" Jeppy denied immediately, sweating nervously as the Ogrin's eyes bore into him. Beside him, Maria chimed in, "It's true, officer. We don't know what happened. Everyone who ate the Honey turned like this for some reason."

The Ogrin frowned. "Wait, ate the Honey? Are you telling me you ate some honey and got painted Gold?"

"Well, yes," Jeppy answered, confused over the question.

"That makes no sense. Only a paint brush can change a Neopet's colour!" He objected harshly. "Show me some of that honey."

Jeppy looked briefly at Maria, signalling he would get the ingredient himself. Quickly turning back, he headed to the kitchen for the batch of honey he used. But when he got there....

"Who are you?" Jeppy gasped, staring at the faerie who was sitting on the floor of his kitchen. Her hair was blonde and she wore a long, shimmery blue dress that ended in a graceful tail.

Startled, the faerie looked up from the bowl of honey, which she had been inspecting. She took one look and Jeppy's golden skin, then dropped the bowl to the ground.

"I'm so sorry," the faerie said, looking horrified. "You may not know me, but my name is Naia and I'm the fountain faerie. Normally all the magic that is used to paint neopets outside of paintbrushes is kept within my fountain. But something terrible has happened! You see, last night I was getting ready for bed as usual when...

...I heard a load crash coming from the fountain. I rushed out to look for it, obviously scared out of my wits! Well, when I got there, I noticed that the water level of my fountain had dropped a few meters! I've never seen anything like this, and I'm not sure what caused it," she said, in a small, rushed voice. "Do you know how some of my magic got in this honey?"

Jeppy shook his head. "No idea, m'am, it was like this when I came in."

"Where did you buy this honey from?" Naia asked. She was rubbing her temples, obviously stressed out from the situation. "I don't mean to interrogate, I'm just terribly embarrassed and want to get to the bottom of this before any more pets are painted without permission."

Jeppy thought about it for a second. Usually, he got all his honey from the same reliable dealer who kept Buzzes. But he was sure that wasn't where he had bought this one - it didn't have the right label on it. So where had it come from?

"Maria!" he called into the main shop. His assistant came rushing in. "Do you know where this honey came from?"

"No, Jeppy, you know I never order the honey."

"I might have an idea where it came from," came a voice from the doorway. It was the Defenders of Neopia officer from the front counter.

"Where?!" the three of them asked in unison.

"Well, I've been trying to track them for months, these Paint Brush counterfeiters, and I think I just found the final clue."

He lifted his hand up for Naia, Jeppy and Maria to see, and their eyes widened as they realised what was in his hand...

...A slip of paper. "There's always money in the honey," the Ogrin read aloud from it in his gruff voice.

Jeppy, Maria, and Naia gasped.

"I just thought it was nonsense... They steal paintbrushes and replace them with counterfeits, what do they want to do with honey farms?" The officer asked rhetorically. "Well now I know."

The Buzz put a hand to his forehead. "Why of course, it was a front! Storing excess magic paint in honey." Jeppy shook his head. "How clever..."

"But that still doesn't explain how the honey got here," Naia commented.

The Ogrin walked over and handcuffed the golden Lupe from much earlier. "Here's the culprit."

"How do you know? You just can't go and insult my customers," Jeppy asked.

The Ogrin cocked an eyebrow. "I've been following 'em for months, remember?"

Jeppy, Maria, and Naia nodded.

"Also," Maria observed, "The golden color around his cuffs is rubbed off."

"That too," the Ogrin agreed.

"And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for you less than unobservant honey crumpet shop workers!" He scowled. "Yes, I did it, but this organization is bigger than you could imagine. We go all the way to the top... you'll never catch us all!"

"But WHY did you do it?" asked Jeppy as the Buzz prodded the Lupe's chest, having more golden color rub off.

The Lupe narrowed his eyes at the proprietor. "Because last week you served me my crumpet not only stale and COLD but also with NO HONEY! You call yourself Neopian-famous? You SUCK!" And he continued to babble things endlessly as the Ogrin escorted him out.

"OK, all," Naia commented, "Let's get you all back to your normal colors, hmm?"

And this actually provided a good cover for Jeppy to prepare more crumpets in advance. "Excellent," he said to Maria.

***

Dr. Sloth looked down at Neopia from the large window of his office aboard the Space Station. "Esterhazy," he asked his loyal Grundo servant and second in command, "have the counterfeiters figured out a way to turn Naia's magic into Transmogrification potions yet?"

"Not yet, sir," the Grundo said with his characteristic smile. "And one was arrested the other day, actually," he continued, the smiling unwavering. "And they think the whole thing is something of a front for honey! Silly Defenders... And they know nothing of, 'the top', of the organization, so to say."

Just then another Grundo, this one wearing a lab coat and carrying a clipboard, ran in. "Doctor, Doctor, We had the first successful Rainbow Fountain Water Transmog potion test!"

"Excellent..." Sloth trailed.

The End.
