Abby woke up that morning to the smooth sound of the horn
that woke everyone up on Mystery Island. The young Meerca was excited, for today,
she would become an explorer.
Abby had a background of celebrities. Cousin
Lisha, great-great-grandmother Fyora… The list went on forever. Abby was going
to do something in history that none of her relatives had done before. She was
going to discover a new island miles from the coast of both Mystery and Krawk
Abby began to prepare. She brushed her fuzzy
red fur. She packed her bags, and put me in a special little Pfish tank just
Oh, have you met me before? You haven't?! Well
then, get to know me! My name is Flopilda. I am Abby's Pfish. She takes me everywhere
with her. Usually I am bored with where she takes me, but this is her first
adventure. I am SO excited, maybe even overexcited! As you can see, I am very
energetic. But I can't help that! This is gonna be so cool!
Once she was all prepared, Abby walked out the
door. As this was her first adventure, she had an assigned guide named Kylen
Mwalk. He was a brave and adventurous Kyrii, but also kind and sweet. That made
up for all the ugliness that he had.
Abby arrived at the Center of Island Exploration
(C.I.E). There Kylen was waiting for her. A telescope sat at the window, waiting
to be looked in.
"Good morning, Abby," said Kylen Mwalk. "The
telescope is waiting."
"Good morning, Kylen," said Abby. I always wonder
why Kylen Mwalk never says hello to me. It's like I'm invisible or something.
Abby proceeded towards the telescope and peeped her eye in. She never told me
what she could see, until she looked away from the telescope with a splash of
"I found a new island! I found a new island!"
Abby shouted. Obviously, I did not believe her. But when she let me have a look,
I didn't believe what I saw.
"It's true!" I shouted with the excitement I
"Let me have a look," said Kylen, pushing me
away from the telescope. Kylen was the third person to shout out at the discovery
of this new island. "It's not officially discovered yet," said Kylen. "We need
to go there first." Abby and Kylen packed their bags, put me back in my tank,
and set off for the undiscovered island.
Two hours later...
Abby, Kylen and I were trapped in our little boat. The island was still a day
away, and I was becoming very bored. Suddenly, dark shadows covered the sunny
morning sky. Lightning flashed, and thunder rumbled. The once calm waves began
to shake. It was the biggest and most surprising thunderstorm of the year.
"Look! Up in the sky!" Abby shouted. Both me
and Kylen glanced up in the dark, shadowy air. Glowing yellow giant Neopets
of all sorts were falling from the sky, closing in on us.
"They're Thunderbeams," said Kylen. "On the
worst storm of the year, the Thunderbeams come out of their secret home in the
sky, plotting doom on the first living things they see."
"Oh no?! Is that us???!!!" Abby worried.
"Unfortunately, yes," said Kylen. "We have to
travel at top speed before the Thunderbeams find us and bother us for life!"
Abby and Kylen began to move, but it was hopeless.
The boat's maximum speed was not high. A thunderbeam that looked like an Aisha
was very near to the boat. When it got too close, it struck the boat and it
was split in two. Kylen was on one side, and Abby and I were one the other.
Kylen seemed to be paddling his half of the boat towards shore.
"You two discover the island," said Kylen. "I'm
heading back to shore." Kylen paddled out of sight. "Oh great. Now that we don't
have an assigned guide with us, how are we going to discover the island?" said
Abby. "Flopilda, you think of something."
"I am completely brainless right now," I said.
I could tell what Abby was thinking. I was brainless all the time. While we
were thinking, another Thunderbeam approached us. This time he had a slight
resemblance to Balthazar. He opened his immense jaws and swallowed everything
on the boat except for us, and the boat as well. We were stuck floating in water.
The lightning beam then pranced away.
"AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH" I shouted. Although
I was a Pfish, Abby couldn't swim, so she could never teach me how. Abby tried
to swim. I tried to follow. After two more hours of awful doggy-paddling, Abby
began to get tired. A few minutes after, I was tired too. Both of us fell asleep
in the great sea.
Two weeks later...
We woke up on a strange beach. It did not resemble Mystery Island or the newly
discovered island. Abby spotted some pirates in the distance. She knew that
it must have been Krawk Island. A tall, male Pirate Krawk greeted us. "Welcome
to Krawk Island," the Krawk said. "Me name is Bubblin' Barti, and y'er little
mateys ar' gonna stay 'ere.
"Uhh, hello," said Abby. "Exactly where am I
"Well, right 'ere on this lil' beach!" exclaimed
Bubblin' Barti. "This beach is me home, an' y'ers, too."
"Um, Bubblin' Barti," said Abby, "we're not
supposed to be here. We shipwrecked on a quest to discover a little island not
far from this coast."
"Oh, y'er mean that lil' place," said Bubblin'
Barti. "Losta folks see that island every day, but nobody's been there. Contaminated
place, it is. Been attacked by Gulwags n' Fishfoffs."
"Gulwags? Fishfofs?" asked Abby. I had read
about Fishfofs and Gulwags in a book, before Abby had adopted me. Gulwags were
little miniature creatures that ate dirt. They have been known to destroy whole
continents just by eating the dirt. Fishfofs were just like Gulwags, except
they ate seaweed and coral. They have destroyed some of the most beautiful coral
reefs in Neopia. There was one chapter in the book that I hadn't read: how to
kill Fishfofs and Gulwags. I told Abby about what I had read.
"Wow, Flopilda!" said Abby. "I didn't know how
smart you were!"
"Don't forget that I used to be owned by another
person," I said.
"AAAAAHHHHH!!!" screamed Abby.
"What is it?" I asked.
"The- the water- it's- it's m- m- moving!"
I looked at the water. It was moving. A dark
shadow seemed to be moving around under the water. Or was it two, or three,
or four…What was going on under there?
To be continued...
