Abaddon had to pay his psychiatrist another visit. This
time, he had decided to bring his plushies. Last night, his master gave him
another plushie, a blue Krawk with white hair. The hair was long, so Abaddon
tied it into a ponytail, and wrapped the Krawk’s body in small white bandage
strips. It also wore a grey gi(opened up) and white pants.
Abaddon was greeted by Clover when he opened
the front door. That sullen feeling of regret was still present from yesterday.
The green Zafara bowed his head and rubbed the
back of it. The injury from yesterday was still there too. “Ah came here ta
apologize ta ya, Abaddon... I'm sorry. ” He then turned back and walked away.
“Why?” asked the Buzz.
The Zafara shrugged. “Well, ah felt guilty about
snapin' at ya like that from yesterday... an' ah felt that this day was mah
only chance ta say sorry.”
Clover walked off and the Buzz was left with
nothing but confusion. Suddenly his cell phone rang. “Yo.” It was the real Maccy.
The Buzz was about to ask on how the Lenny was
able to reach him this way, but decided to reply back with another hello. “This
is awkward time to call me Maccy,” said Abaddon.
“Yeah, it is. But I felt it was important for
me to do so.”
“‘Last chance’ feeling, you know. Bye” Then there
was a click and Abaddon began to feel very scared.
He remembered that his owner actually hugged
him from last night, maybe it was linked to what Clover and Maccy were doing.
He shook his head, and headed toward the airport to get a ride to Mystery Island.
He passed by the Training school until it happened, a stinging pain lurked
into the back of his ankle. He looked down at a little blue Krawk, whom was
laughing its own head off. The plushie Buzz picked the Krawk up, and glared
sternly at the little creature.
The Petpet had obviously expected a comeback,
and got from behind its back, a wooden spoon. The Petpet lifted it over his
head, and slammed it upon the Buzz’s head.
My body nudged forward and fell out of the hammock in which I was sleeping
in. I got up quickly and walked out of my captain’s quarters. “What’s going
on?” I asked. My crew of three was leaning over the railing looking at something.
I went between them and saw from a short distance,
an actual island. It had the shrubbery of a jungle, which brought about a happy
feeling within me. I saw my crew’s expressions, both Emma and Maccy gazed at
the island in awe. It was probably the longest time they had been without seeing
Zannibar on the other hand, showed a rare wisdom
and intelligence in his purple eyes. His experience as a weathered sailor showed
at this very moment, and I wanted to treasure the moment. But I had to interrupt,
this island held great promise, and I proposed to my crew that we should explore
They agreed full-heartedly and Kuepil stirred
itself toward the island, which didn’t take long at all, we all boarded off
and waved good bye to our vassal. The beach like scenery was pleasant, and I
assumed that this piece of land used to be a part of the Mystery Island.
I turned my head toward Emma’s voice. “Look over
there!” She had the best eyes in the whole crew, and the three of us had to
squint at the object she was pointing at. I noticed a tiny shadow presented
in the shape of a temple.
We decided to approach this temple, only to find
that it really wasn't a temple, but a dojo! One I quickly recognized as the
Mystery Island training school, except that half the building was missing. It
was very old and kind of run down, but only on the outside. When we entered,
it was very clean, we walked around cautiously as to the fact that someone was
probably still present on the island.
That’s when I realized that my crew wasn’t sneaking
with me. I heard a commotion coming from a door I had just passed. I opened
the sliding door open enough to spy upon what was going on inside this room.
“Foolish pirates! How dare you, try and steal
from here! Jubei’s lair!” I was very jaded on the subject, not really caring
for the fact that he was wearing the same attire as my new plushie.
Emma was tugging on the Krawk’s jacket and Maccy
was taking his considerable distance. Jubei glared back with a ticked off expression,
and snapped at the Zafara. “Beat it. You oversized rat!” The Zafara narrowed
her glare and let go of the Krawk’s jacket.
She casually walked behind Jubei where his tail
swayed up and down. She grabbed it and the next thing I heard was a loud crunch.
I pushed the door open a little more, making the opening wider, and snickered
at the event presented in the room.
Emma’s teeth were latched onto Jubei’s tail,
her eyes glowing red from extreme hatred for the Krawk. Jubei whose grip had
loosened around Zannibar’s neck had a priceless expression. In the background
Maccy was sneaking away with a big brown bag.
Zannibar slipped out of the Krawk’s hands, and
crawled on all fours to escape more quickly. The three of them ran out the door,
zipping right past me. They all had mischievous little grins on their faces.
I just had to forget that we were pirates, and stealing was what they did.
I walked into the other room, I was compelled
to apologize to the Krawk. He was blowing on the bite mark on his tail, and
he wrapped a white bandage around it. He stared back at me with a vengeful glare.
The little blue Krawk became very frustrated, he constantly slammed his spoon
onto the Buzz’s head. The insect seemed to refuse in admitting defeat to the
evil little reptile. Abaddon’s expression was dazed, his eyes were half opened
and were very dull in color. “Jubei Musashi! Stop that!” yelled a young voice.
A pink Aisha yanked the Krawk away from his perch
on the Buzz’s head. “You know Ryshu doesn’t like it when you terrorize guests!”
Her companions, a green Shoyru and a yellow Techo nodded in agreement.
“He doesn’t like it when I terrorize anything,”
snapped the little Petpet, then suddenly, little Jubei jumped out of her grasp
and sniffed the air. His eyes widen and he wobbled around dizzily. “F-fire.
Jubei’s home on fire . . . ”
The three youngsters smelt the air and cringed
at the scent of burning wood.
Ryshu shifted from one foot to another, his body
was covered in mild burns and he panted in exhaustion. “Please Ryshu, you did
enough already... just rest.” A Cybunny in a floral kimono pushed the Nimmo
down to ground by by his shoulders.
“B-but I know some of the pupils are still there.
And I just know that Jubei is in there too! Petpets are very sensitive to smoke.
I've gotta help him.” He was going to get back up but the Master had stopped
him. His hand placed upon the Nimmo’s shoulder.
“No my son, it is already taken care of.” The
wise old Guru looked at the burning dojo calmly. He knew something that no one
else in the entire area knew, and he wasn’t going to say a word about it.
Abaddon was extremely confused. One minute he’s
saving kids and a Petpet in huge fire in the training school. The next, he’s
doing the same thing but with the “other” Jubei being the only victim. The Krawk
had passed out from the gas, and he had his head under the Buzz’s arm.
“What’s wrong with this guy!? He’s moving so
sluggishly!” whined the green Shoyru.
The three of them agreed to try and escape without
the Buzz’s help. “Make sure to grab Jubei when we're passing by --!”
“Watch out!” The Buzz pushed the kids aside as
a huge flame burst from the wall. The Buzz threw the Petpet behind him letting
the creature land into one of the children’s arms. “RUN!” He shouted, while
pushing the children toward the exit.
The three of them charged out of the exit, the
Aisha was crying, the Techo laughed sarcastically in relief, and the Shoyru
-- the young Shoyru hugged tightly onto Jubei who was now wide awake trying
to escape the child’s grasp. His eyes were very wide, and his pupils were pin
pricked, as if he had seen some great horror.
Ryshu and all of the other training school instructors
dashed toward the three, along with classmates that were relieved for the trio’s
safety. Then Ryshu noticed the Shoyru’s expression. “What’s wrong?”
Abaddon’s head spun, he blinked, and saw in front of him the big Jubei from
his dreams. The Krawk was bowing in the Buzz’s presence. “I thank you for saving
me. In return, I will serve you for as long as I can... Captain.”
Something didn’t feel right, around him was the
setting of his dreams. But now it was more “real” than ever before. He shook
his head in utter confusion and blacked out.
Everything was dark within this room, I felt a chill go up my spine, and I
sharply turned around. When I turned, I met eye to eye with the me from my dreams.
Even though I already knew who he was, I asked, “Who are you?”
“The ‘other’ you.” He wasn’t wearing any clothes
and he appeared more demented in this dark room. He continued speaking, “The
you from the ‘other’ Neopia.”
“Other Neopia? Don’t you mean the dream world?”
The figure smiled and shook his head. “You’re
stuck in ‘other’ Neopia.” He pointed a finger toward himself. “In my body .
. . ”
“H-how can that be!? Y-you’re just a part of
my dreams! You can’t be real!”
“The dreams were just a passage way to get into
this world. To get into my empty body... It’s yours now. I’m not allowed to
inhabit my own body, and you can’t do that with your own in the ‘prime’ Neopia.
You’re gonna be stuck here for a very long time... so I advise that you better
make the best of it... now wake up.”
Abaddon opened his eyes and saw his crew looking down at him. “Welcome back,
Captain,” greeted Zannibar. The Buzz sat up and smiled, placing his hat on his
head. He then got up from the ground quickly, and walked toward the boat’s stirring
The crew was caught off guard by Abaddon’s sudden
burst in energy. “Is there something a matter Captain?” asked Maccy the Lenny’s
head was drawn aback a little, the bird was very timid.
“No.” The Buzz spun the wheel, happily grinning.
“I’m making the best of it!”
And so began the adventures of Captain Abaddon
and his mischievous crew!
