Story Eighty- Ends June 7th

Brandon extended his wing, holding a branch out of the way as his guide passed under. Being in the middle of a jungle was no excuse to forget politeness as far as this Eyrie was concerned. "Are you sure this is where the legendary Mystery Island treasure is?" Brandon asked, retracting his wing.

The Kyrii guide blinked twice and just looked at him. "Who's the guide, here? I know what I'm doing, buddy, just try to keep up." He started forward again, but then turned around and said, "You know, you really should have painted yourself green or something."

"What's your name again, sir?" Brandon asked.

"Why do you need to know that? I'm leading you to the treasure, aren't I? That's all you need to know. The less you know, the better, my friend."

"Is this part of the jungle very dangerous?" Brandon asked, clearing away some more hanging branches. Before them stood what looked to be a group of armed coconuts. Brandon's eyes widened.

"Not good. Not good!" the Kyrii yelled. "If you know what's good for you, kid, you'll run! Fly! Run...!"

...The Kyrii turned and ran as fast as his legs could carry him in the opposite direction. He glanced back at Brandon and motioned for him to run. Brandon ruffled his feathers and got a good look at the coconuts. They looked kind of cute - in a fierce sort of way. What seemed to be the head coconut grunted and shoved its spear at Brandon.

"Uh, hello?" Brandon noticed the coconuts surrounding him. He'd figured out by then that there were people behind the coconuts. The leader grunted again and prodded Brandon with his spear. Brandon jumped and walked forward.

The tribe marched him on for quite a while poking him with a spear every so often. They eventually reached a clearing where little huts stood in a circle. A giant black pot sat right in the middle. Brandon gulped.

"So you took me here to fix me dinner?" He gave a weak smile and swallowed again.

Some big coconut people tied him up and all but the leader filtered into their huts. The leader (I guess he should be referred to as the cheif) grunted loudly at Brandon and acted as though he was waiting for an answer. Brandon smiled shakily and shrugged his shoulders. The cheif grunted very loudly at this and several people rushed out of their huts. They exchanged grunts and Brandon was lifted into the air.

He noticed to his dismay that they seemed to be heading in the direction of the big pot in the center. He also noticed that a fire was being started underneath it. Brandon decided these people were probably not friendly. He wiggled his claw to reach his knife and caught it. He began to saw at his ropes, but all too soon they reached the bubbling pot.

They lifted him high over it and all the people that had been in the huts gathered around. Brandon gave a final jerk on his ropes and - they snapped! Brandon flew straight up only to see...

...The criss-cross pattern of a primitive net!

"Eaggh!" Brandon yelped. "Help! Somebody!"

The net was tied up by even more coconut people who had appeared out of nowhere. Once more, they heaved the Eyrie up towards the cooking pot. The water bubbled and snapped at him. Just as the coconuts were about to dump him in, however, somebody's voice thundered through the village.

"What have I told you about eating helpless travelers?"

Brandon and the coconuts all turned. Out of one of the crude huts, a yellow Wocky sauntered.

This Wocky wore a hard green safari hat on her head and beads in her ears. Her orange eyes glittered fiercely.

"Drop it," she commanded the coconut horde.

They dropped him. Brandon stepped nervously away from the boiling pot.

The Wocky took a strip of beef jerky from under her hat and began chewing on it. Then she smoothly walked over to the Eyrie. The coconut people had backed into a wide semi-circle out of respect.

"You a treasure-hunter?" she asked Brandon, chomping away on the jerky...

..."Yeah," said Brandon, trying to act casual. He had an idea it might be smart to tell the truth when surrounded by coconut people with sharp spears. "You haven't seen any treasure around here, have you?"

She looked him up and down and sighed.

"Rookies," she muttered. "You didn't even paint yourself green. Who was your guide, kid?"

"A Kyrii. He ran off when he saw the - um - coconut thingies. I don't know his name, he was acting kinda mysterious."

"Yeah he's done that to about six other guys. I don't know who started that rumour about treasure. I'm going to get to the bottom of this." She turned to the coconut creatures and yelled "Hache noo noo noo noo. JIMMY!"

Three of the little guys ran off into the jungle and the rest sighed. The one Brandon had taken for the chief stepped forward and fidgeted with his spear. "We takem off now?" he asked pleadingly. The others agreed "Yeah. Pleeas takem off? Hot hot."

Brandon gulped and glanced at the cooking pot, then at the Kyrii. Were they asking if they could cook him after all? She glared at them, then nodded. With a sigh of relief they threw their spears down and removed their coconut costumes, to reveal...

...a bunch of mutant Chias, who were panting and sweating heavily. Brandon's eyes almost popped out of his sockets. "WHAT THE...?" Brandon looked inquisitively at the Wocky, who had finished her strip of beef jerky and was reaching for a can of NeoCola. She looked straight at him, with a fiery glare... and giggled!

She pulled out the ring from her can of NeoCola and replied, "These Chias were the 'misfits' of Dr. Sloth's 'Mutant Brigade, Chia Unit 25.' They had gotten sick of all the gross food that they were having as military rations, and had finally reached the limit. Thus, they had tried to escape, but ended up here being chased by a mean-looking mutant Grundo.

"I only just managed to save my skin and these Chias by firing an icy bolt of multi-colored frost at that big lumbering brute from my 'Rainbow Frost Cannon Improved Version 2.0'," said the Wocky, grinning widely.

Brandon was still feeling shocked, when suddenly he remembered something from the long passage of information he had just heard from the Wocky. "Huh? 'Mutant Brigade, Chia Unit 25'? What in the whole of Neopia is THAT?" he asked curiously.

"Well," said the Wocky...

Just then, the Kyrii burst into the clearing, brandishing... a rainbow gun. He waved it menacingly in the air and said, "You all better return me my Chias, before I blast y'all into eternity!"

The Wocky, whose mouth was gaping open, reacted quickly, and said "Er-hm. What are you waving in the air? Is that some kind of puny toy gun?"

Brandon answered, "I think it's that cheap weapon they give you in a newbie pack, a rainbow gun. Hey, Mr Kyrii, are you a newbie to Neopets? I pity you. Even I have better weapons than you. Why, even my great-great-grandfather would win you in a BattleDome match!"

The Kyrii looked at the weapon in his hands, smiled sheepishly and said, "Oh yeah. This is my son's favourite toy. Ooops!" before pulling out...

...a Coconut Shooter! A massive thing made from bamboo! In the other hand he was holding a whole bunch of mini-coconuts.

"Now I'd beat your great-great grandfather in the Battledome!" he wildly screamed. "HA HA HA! Once I destroy you all I will have the treasure to myself."

"You've tried this millions of times before!" the Wocky shouted. "And I've stopped you every time with my Rainbow Frost Cannon, this time Version 5.7!"

"Aaaa," the Kyrii said, still wildly pointing the cannon at everyone. "But I have improved my cannon too. It's the Super Coconut Blaster Version 6.0! Copyright 2002 Kyrii Blaster Corp. All Rights Reserved, Made In Deep Forest."

The mutant Chias saw what was going on and lunged at the Kyrii, but without their protective coconut suits on they were helpless to the tour guide's attack.

The Kyrii loaded his cannon and blasted at the Chias! He didn't have good aim, but everyone saw the force of the coconut hit the ground and shatter into tiny pieces. The mutant Chias backed-off.

"Do you see my immense power?" He laughed maniacally.

Brandon and the Wocky sighed. "How do we beat him?"

"You can't beat me!" the Kyrii shouted. "I am INVINCIBLE! AHA HA HA, AHA HA HA!"

"I don't think my Rainbow Frost Cannon can stand up to anything of that immense power!" The Wocky was scared as well.

"But maybe two could stand up to him!" Brandon excitedly pointed out. "I see it in cartoons, they always have two of one thing in these sticky situations!"

"Too bad this is the real world," the Wocky pointed out.

"Now..." The Kyrii lowered his cannon and pointed it straight at Brandon and the Wocky. "I will blast you to oblivion!!!"

"Oh NO!" Brandon screamed...

...he flung his arms over his head, and pretended very hard to be scared. The Wocky got his drift, and fell to her knees.

"Now, Little Miss Rainbow Frost Cannon, let's see you beat this!" The Kyrii yelled, shooting a coconut from the gun. But Brandon was too quick for the crazed Kyrii. He grabbed one of the masks that the Chias had disguised themselves with, and shielded the Wocky and himself with it. The coconut hit the shield with a BANG, and shattered into tiny pieces.

"Now it's my turn." The yellow Wocky pushed the shield away, and pulled out her own gun. It was slightly smaller than the Kyrii's, but it looked like something Dr. Sloth might carry with him. The trigger clicked, and a ball of rainbow-like light shot from the gun.

The Kyrii ducked, but not in time. The rainbow ball hit him in the stomach, causing him to drop his gun. The Kyrii stumbled backwards, and fell behind a bush, defeated.

"Nice job!" Brandon congratulated the Wocky, but he was interrupted by a scream.

"LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO MY FUR! IT LOOKS LIKE I FELL INTO A CAN OF RAINBOW PAINT! I WILL NOT LET YOU DO THIS TO ME!" The Kyrii emerged from the bush, pointing at a newly coloured body. He whistled, and then...

...a massive Skieth came out of the trees, thrashing it's large body angrily. It howled, and a small gust of wind kicked up as it flapped it's wings angrily, felling a tree with it's tail. Brandon's eyes widened in shock, and grew cold with fear, he barely heard the Kyrii laughing.

Meanwhile, the Wocky was already pulling out a yellow-coloured Frost Cannon from thin air, and set it down on the ground. She grinned maliciously at the Skieth.

"What's THAT gonna do to Jargon?!" cried the Kyrii incredulously. "His thick skin's as thick as his head!"

"Then I guess we'll have to give him a head cold!"

The Wocky pulled the string to the Frost Cannon. There was a loud boom, and a large, round snowball, about as big as the Skieth's head flying through the air.

Brandon ducked as the snowball went sailing overhead and watched it. Jargon was growling, and was steadily stomping towards the two, it's legs knocking aside trees as it went.

SPLAT!!! The snowball suddenly hit it's mark, and the Skieth cried out as it's face was covered in the yellow snow. Jargon thrashed a moment, screaming things every so often, and then sank to his knees, snoring.

"NO WAY!" screeched the Kyrii, furiously hopping with rage, getting rainbow-colours everywhere. He glared angrily about and was about to...

...lunge for the gun he had dropped earlier, but Brandon reached it first and knocked it across the clearing with his wing, amazed at his own strength and courage.

"Way to go, rookie," the Wocky said. "If stuff like that runs in the family, your great-great-grandfather really WOULD have a chance against him."

"I won't let this happen!" the Kyrii repeated and, in a colourful flurry, dashed to one of the biggest oak trees.

He found a knot in the tree, then pushed it in. A large hole formed, big enough for the Wocky to fit in. The Kyrii climbed in, then back out. "I had this prepared," he said, snarling, "in case of emergencies."

Brandon gasped. In his hand was...

...A coconut bomb! He grinned and lobbed it at Brandon. Brandon tried to run, but it landed on his back.

No matter how hard he tried, he couldn't get the bomb off. He was starting to sweat heavily, and he rasped at the Wocky, "Help!"

He heard laughing as the bomb was raised off his back. The Kyrii was standing there, showing his dazzling teeth. There was something familiar about it. It was the Kyrii from Better Than You!

"Hehe, we really tricked you didn't we? For withstanding this with brave courage, we award you some black sand..." He held up a bottle of sand.

"A bottle of black sand?!?" bellowed Brandon. "It's worth 1 NP on the Shop Wizard! After all I went through!!!"

The Kyrii smiled and replied, "Just kidding! Calm down! You win, let's see... this medal!" He held up a gold medal. "And, you can go and pick up your pirate paint brush at Krawk Island." He then added, "You'll be brought there by Kyrii Kruiser. Now come on, or we'll be late!"

Brandon stood there, dumbstruck. Oh well, he thought to himself, it was worth it... even if I did get dirty. He grinned in spite of himself. "I won't ever go exploring again," He stated.

[A long pause]

"I'm just kidding!" He laughed. So, he did lead a pretty happy life. Or so we think...

The End
