"Hey, in case you haven't noticed, that happens to be my
everlasting apple you have there," said a very annoyed looking Gelert.
"Oh this?" questioned a small Kyrii, obviously
enjoying this game. "It doesn't look everlasting to me."
"Well, no but I'm trying to make it everlasting
and anyway that's beside the point! Hand it over Makineato! You stole it and
I want it back."
The Gelert lunged for the tiny apple while knocking
the Kyrii over. The apple rolled out of the Kyrii's grip and nestled in a patch
of grass near a curious looking Meowclops.
The Gelert eyed the apple then the hungry petpet.
"Spiceymeat, come on, give the apple to me. I'm your owner! See? Be a good boy
and just hand it..."
It was too late. The Gelert growled at the Kyrii
and lunged one more time.
"Do you know how much I paid for that apple?
160 Neopoints! What did you want with it anyway? You can't eat apples pinhead."
Makineato, the Kyrii, glared. "For your information,
I purchased a Halloween Whoot and I wanted to see if he could really chop stuff
up. I thought it would be fun."
"Fun? You really need to get out more, you know
"Yeah, well thanks to you I no longer have an
apple!" Makineato thwacked Jeronik a few times with his rubber axe. "It's your
entire fault! You and that dumb petpet of yours."
"It's my fault? You stole my apple. My apple!
Now I'm out 160 Neopoints. You're the one to be blamed and put that dumb rubber
axe away! It really hurts." Jero rubbed his head a few times and pouted.
"Oh come on you big baby get up! We'll find
our own apples."
Jero looked wide eyed at the Kyrii, "You mean,
Makineato rolled his eyes. "Your sister is an
ex-thief for crying out loud! Don't tell me you're afraid."
The Gelert glared and spat out, "I'm not scared!
I'm just... emotionally frightened."
"That is the same thing."
"No it isn't."
"Whatever. Come on already! We've got a health
shop to go to!"
As the two entered the shop, they were greeted
by a funny looking Quiggle with a veggie badge.
"Would you like to buy some nice, healthy food
for your pet?" the Quiggle asked with a smile on his face.
"We are pets and err we'll just be browsing
for now, thanks", replied Makineato.
"Okay then!" said the Quiggle not blinking once
with the same silly smile plastered on his face.
"Is he alive? I think he's staring at me! Is
he staring at me?" Jero said looking around frantically.
"Jero! Settle down! Look, there are the apples.
Now all we have to do is... Jero are you even listening to me?"
Makineato took out his axe and gave Jero a few
more good thwacks on the head.
"Hey! What did you do that for?"
"Pay attention! Now, you distract the Quiggle,
and I'll take the apples and stuff them in my hat. Got it?"
"He's looking straight at us! He hasn't blinked
"That's because he's squinting doofus. He's
not looking at anything!"
"Oh. Does that mean he has no eyes?"
"How am I supposed to know?" Makineato hissed.
"Just do what I said."
Jero sighed and went over to the Quiggle.
"Hello there. Uh, I'm looking for some eyes."
"Oh! Um I meant black eyes peas. Yeah do you
know where they are?"
"Sure! They're right over next to the apples.
Here, I'll take you to them".
The Quiggle started towards Makineato, who at
the time was stuffing apples into his hat."
"No! I uh changed my mind."
Jero was panicking. The Quiggle was nearing
Makineato. They would be caught for sure! So, Jero did the only thing he could
"Oww! What did you do that for?" yelled the
Mak rushed forward, apples falling out of his
hat behind him, and grabbed Jero's tail. "I said distract him not poke him in
the eye! Come on, let's get out of here."
As the two neared the door, the Quiggle stepped
out in front of them.
"Leaving so soon? I mean, you didn't find anything
"Oh err no we're fine thanks," said Makineato
as he inched closer to the door. He stopped as he stood in front of the exit.
"Wait... find something else?"
"Oh yes!" stated the Quiggle, "I see you picked
up about four of our delicious apples. That will be 640 Neopoints please!"
Jero's eyes widened. "You saw that?"
"I do have eyes", stated the Quiggle.
"Really? Where?" Jero poked his eye.
"Hey! I only have two of those and would very
much so like to keep it that way!"
"Oh", said an embarrassed Jero, "Sorry about
Makineato rolled his eyes. "You are pathetic.
Come on let's make a run for it!"
"Oh no you don't", shouted the Quiggle as he
zapped them both with his bubble gun.
The two tumbled to the ground with an "oof!"
One hour later...
"I told you this was never going to work!" exclaimed Jero.
"It's your own fault for poking his eye!" replied
"How was I supposed to know he even had one?"
Makineato took out his rubber axe.
"Do you carry that around with you everywhere?
What are you going to do? Hit me again?"
"Actually I wasn't. I was about to knock myself
out. There's only so much stupidity a Kyrii can take you know, but now that
you've mentioned it..."
Makineato thwacked Jero a couple times on the
"That really hurts, you know that?"
"So I've heard. Hey, what's this?"
Mak took off his hat and much to his surprise,
found an apple that was hidden in a pocket.
"When did you take that?" asked Jero.
"When did I get a pocket" said a puzzled Mak.
"Hmm, well looks like my Whoot has something to chop after all!"
"Excuse me? I believe you owe me an apple Mak!"
"I don't owe you anything! I had to pay 640
Neopoints for those other apples!"
"You stole my Neopoint bag".
"Prove it then", Mak said arms crossed.
Jero pointed to the small bag fastened to Mak's
"Property of Jeronik' See? It says right there!"
"Hand over the apple Mak!"
"No it's all mine and you can't have it muahaha!"
Jero growled and lunged at the Kyrii. The apple
rolled out of his grip and landed at the feet of a small Meowclops.
"Spiceymeat be a good boy and give me the apple.
Whoops, it was too late (again).
"How ironic," said Jero as he glared at the
munching Meowclops petpet in his paws.
Mak took out his rubber axe. "Yeah".
