Story Seven Hundred Ninety Ends Friday, October 23 2017

"I am not bad like the wraiths."

"I am not bad like the wraiths."

"I am not bad like the wraiths."

Ali kept telling herself this as she walked along an abandoned path through the Haunted Woods. It was late at night. Nobody was out. Good, that was good. That was the one good thing about travelling through the Haunted Woods at night.

She was a wraith Korbat. Yes, she was a wraith, but she was a Neopet, too. Nobody seemed to see the Neopet side of her. Especially after what happened at the Faerie Festival, everyone was wary of wraiths.

Then she heard a loud snap followed by some rustling foliage. Ali jumped and hid behind a tree. She peered out from behind it to see a bush shaking. Oh no, it was a Neopet.

"Wh-who's there?" Ali squeaked. "I-I know you're there!" She took a deep breath. "Just come out..."

Ali stood in anticipation waiting for the stranger to appear from the greenery, when she noticed a tail poking through the leaves.

She gingerly took small steps towards the strangers hiding spot, when suddenly a voice shouted.

"Please, please leave alone. If anyone sees me talking to you, I'll surly be blamed for what happened."

The Korbat froze in her tracks. Saddened she knew being a wraith was why this Neopet didn't want to talk to her.

"I am not bad like the wraiths." Ali found herself once again announcing.

The voice scoffed, "All Wraiths are bad, its in their nature."

Growing more curious as to who was crouching behind the bush, Ali made a sudden movement and pulled back the branches to reveal...

A young Orange Kougra sat cowering in the bushes. He had his eyes covered, as if by simply not seeing the wraith Korbat he would be fine.

Ali let out a large sigh before continuing, "That is simply not true!" She was getting a bit tired of always being made out to be a bad Neopet just based on her color.

She waited patiently with the branches parted until the Kougra eventually uncovered his eyes.

"Wh-what's your name?" Ali inquired. She was a bit startled by the defiant look in his eyes.

After observing her curiously for a while, the Orange Kougra said, "My name is Trevor."

"Everyone knows wraiths are bad! They are a by-product of that lady who crashed Faerieland to the ground back in the day!" he continued hurriedly, stating everything in a very matter-of-fact way.

Ali wasn't exactly sure why, but his statement really irked her. She decided right then and there what she was going to do.

"Well not all wraiths are bad, and I'm going to prove it!"

"How?" asked the Orange Kougra incredulously.

"You will see in just a little bit." A smug grin crossed the Korbat's face. Her plan was fool-proof!

Ali then took the Kougra by the scruff of his green shirt in feigned bravery and began dragging him down the abandoned path toward...

"Please no," Trevor yelled as he realized where Ali was taking him. "I promise I wont tell anyone about this, please just let me go."

"Hush," Ali said. "I have to prove to you that I am good."

Ali kept walking, closer and closer to the witches tower. Surely Edna could prove she was good. Edna would treat her just like any Neopet that walked through the door looking for a quest. If Ali was truly evil then Edna would give her special treatment, like a friend.

"We must go talk to Edna." Ali said, matter of factly. "She will prove that I am not like the other wraiths."

"I don't like this." Trevor said in a trembling voice.

Ali climbed up the stairs, towards the front door. The tall, dark tower loomed before her, suddenly a feeling of uneasiness washed over her.

Ali took a deep breath and knocked on the door.

The door opened and Ali and Trevor both yelled in terror at the sight in front of them...

A shadow of Edna was standing above her cauldron. A dark figure that was busy adding some strange and frankly unpleasant looking things to the green, bubbling mixture.

The shadow looked up at the sudden yelling, but wordlessly went back to the cauldron. Ali was slightly confused by what she was seeing.

"Edna?" She asked.

The shadow faded in and out slightly, but then pointed to the far wall, where a yellowed and tattered piece of paper was hanging by a gnarled nail.

"I am gathering ingredients. I will be out. Direct all quest requests to my shadow."

Ali looked back to the witches shadow.

"I would like to help." She said.

The silent shadow of the witch stopped once more from whatever mixture it was brewing. It seemed to float onto the floor as it moved over to a table and shelves, covered in odd, squiggling things. It dug around for a moment, before it appeared by the pair.

In the dark, clenched hand, there was...

A dusty old spellbook with a skull on the cover, which the shadow opened to one of the bookmarked pages. The black hand trailed it's finger down the parchment until it stopped at a specific point and tapped twice.

"Bring me a Festering Coffee and Yellow Marbleman T-shirt." Edna's shady counterpart demanded.

"Will do!" Ali motioned at Trevor she was ready to leave. The Orange Kougra seemed happy to go. In his haste however he bumped against the stand holding the cauldron up, there was a brief gasp from Ali and she went to catch the pot before it could fall. Unfortunately, she was too late, the pot tipped over, coating the Korbat in mysterious green goo while it pooled onto the floor. Shadow Edna let out a horrendous screech.

That's when Ali felt herself beginning to change...

...It was the strangest feeling - she wondered if this was what Reptilliors and Cobralls felt like when they shed their skins. It was a sensation of something being peeled off her, but at the same time it felt separate from her... she felt no pain.

"Ahh! Wraith! Wraith!" Trevor screamed, pointing at something over Ali's shoulder.

She looked and saw a dark purple and pink blob quivering on the ground. Looking at her own hands, Ali saw they were white! She must be back to being a green Korbat, just like she was before she painted herself Wraith.

As Ali, Trevor, and the shadow watched, the blob began to quiver and take form. It was transforming into a real wraith! I can't believe that thing was a part of me, Ali realized in horror. I thought it was just a coat of paint!

"Change of plans," Edna's shadow snarled. "Hurry and bring me an E-Z Brand My First Containment Field and a Wraith Scroll. My master will be back soon to perform the spell. What are you waiting for? Get going!..."

There was a whooshing sound, and to Ali's horror, the Wraith swooped upright. Twice her height, it towered over both her and Trevor, and its eyes began to glow...

"RUN!" screamed Trevor, and Ali didn't need telling twice. As both Neopets careered towards the door, Edna's shadow flitted between them and the looming Wraith.

Panting, Ali wrenched at the door. The Kougra tumbled out ahead of her, hissing in fright.

"Where are we going to get a containment field?!" he shrieked. "Or a Wraith scroll? We need to hurry!"

The tower shook ominously, and strange crashes and rattled rang out as they retreated. Ali heard the shadow cursing and screeching; it sounded like she was throwing everything she could at the Wraith. A clang and a high-pitched wail suggested she was not having much success.

The two 'pets stumbled out into the darkness. Ali's mind raced as the ground rumbled and the screeches of the shadow rose louder. Sneaking a look over her shoulder, the Korbat was horrified to see creeping purple mist snaking out of the door of the tower, while shadowy forms licked at the stone like flames. Suddenly, she stopped.

"There's no time," the Korbat said breathlessly, flapping her wings rapidly to turn herself back towards the tower. "We'll never find the ingredients before that Wraith overpowers the shadow and breaks free. We have to go back."

Trevor's eyes widened. "You're crazy! There's no way I'm stepping one paw back in there!"

Ali grimaced. "That Wraith was a part of me. Come on. I know what to do..."

...Ali returned to the tower.

"Look who's back," said Other Ali with a hiss.

"Did you fetch the ingredients?" Edna's Shadow said in between hurling a random potion at the wraith.

"No, there's no time," Ali said hurriedly. "Shadow, stand down."

The shadow stared at her with trepidation but did as told. She was relieved to have another Neopian the wraith would surely focus its anger toward.

"Shadow, what was that potion, anyway?"

"A separator, though I'm sure you've figured that out already. It's meant to separate you from your 'other', the version of you with those personality traits you hate about yourself -- your insecurities, your rage, whatever." She shrugged. "Clearly you hate this wraith form."

"That's not entirely true," Ali replied. "I hated the notion that people would see my wraith form and believe me to be inherently bad. I suppose that separator produced the version of me that IS inherently bad, the version I was afraid others would see..."

The green Korbat feigned confidence and said, "Look, wraith," and the wraith looked at her with eyes soulless yet blazing, "you were part of me and I am part of you. You were a part I didn't know existed, and, well... you obviously are like the bad wraiths."

The wraith frowned. "I... why, thanks for noticing." A small maniacal grin crept upon her face.

"But, a force such as yourself cannot survive here. Sure, you can trash this room, and sack us, but do you really think you can survive the Haunted Woods?" She gestured toward Trevor.

"I-it's true," the Kougra started. "We wanted to go after Ali -- well, the you and her combined Ali -- with pitchforks, and containment units, and the best magic we have." He wrung his paws nervously. "And if you are the parts of Ali she thought were toxic, you, er, obviously don't have the negotiating skills, nuances, or personality to talk your way out of being anything other than hunted."

Other Ali scowled as she took this in.

"You do, however, have the option of re-merging with me," Ali squeaked.

Trevor nodded at her; he felt this was her plan all along.

The wraith snarled. "OK, Korbat. I may be more powerful than you, more vicious, more cunning -- more 'bad' -- but I suppose I can't survive on that alone."

That was all the prompt the shadow needed. She blew some dust at the two and they instantly re-merged.

The sensation, rather than painful, felt invigorating.

While she was not bad like the other wraiths, she, at least, now acknowledged she couldn't suppress her wraith insecurities any longer.

"Come on," Ali said to herself if nothing more. "It's time to fly around and cause some lighthearted havoc. Show them all that wraiths aren't necessarily good, but certainly aren't bad." She gave Trevor a parting smirk. "See you again sooner than you think, Trevor."

And with that, she soared out the window, and overtop the dim glow of the Haunted Woods.


"So," Edna asked upon returning to her Tower, "Anything interesting happen today?"

Her shadow shrugged. "Eh, just the usual stuff."
