Living In The Shadow 2: The Lost Faerie -- Part Six
"Jennumara, I have freed you from your cage!" Jenifyuri
bowed down as the figure grew larger.
"Hate to break it to you but you haven't!" Baelia
appeared in front of Jenifyuri with all the faeries as well as Mikey, Sari,
Dae, Lae, Merlina, Kaweo and Toby.
"Get them!" Jenifyuri pointed and her guards
ran after the Faeries, leaving Mikey, Sari and the pets.
"Now Tavi!" Mikey raced to Tavi who pulled out
the real orb, he picked it up and smashed it on the floor, the colours swirled
around and raced into each Faerie. Their powers were back! Wings grew on their
backs and they were lifted into the air, their wands reappeared but it didn't
stop there… every Faerie darted off in a colour and down from the sky appeared
one Faerie, it was a mix of every colour, every Faerie!
"You will join Jennumara now Jenifyuri for your
crimes, you shall never again see the light of Neopia, you shall never again
use your powers to threaten the lives of Neopets and the humans that care for
them!" The Faerie placed their wand on the cloud where the fake orb was and
a portal opened sucking in Jenifyuri, she screamed as she was taken from this
land, to a void, a void of nothingness where she was doomed to spend all eternity.
"Faerie, what about Neopia?" DeepMirage looked
down from the cloud at the ruins of the land.
"It will be restored!" The Faerie picked up
her wand and flew up into the air, she swirled around causing all the colours
to shine from her, Neopia spun under her, slowly everything was restored, Faerieland
raised up into the air, the city was rebuilt, all the clouds of Faerieland came
back, the castle floated from the ground back to where it belonged, all the
lands grew back from rubble, the fires were out, all the shadows disappeared
from the pets into the air and then up into the Faerie, then the pets started
moving back to where they were before everything had happened, back to where
they were seven months ago. The Faerie stopped swirling and all the uber faeries
floated back down to Faerieland
"You shall not remember this time, only we will,
but as a reminder we give you these!" Fyora held out seven orbs, each with a
different colour held inside.
"Oooh pretty, what is it?" Merlina looked at
the object in her hand.
"It is an orb of power, it contains the power
of a Faerie that has passed from this land, it will serve as a guide to you,
a guide that will keep away evil in all its forms and should evil get to you
it will fill you with the power and the courage to destroy it!" Fyora smiled
and floated into the air with the other faeries.
"Wait!" Mikey shouted up and Fyora stopped in
"What?" She floated back down to where she had
"What happened to Jenifyuri and the shadows?"
"Jenifyuri has been imprisoned in a void, there
is nothing there other than Jennumara, the other evil Faerie that Jenifyuri
was working for. There is no worse punishment for Jenifyuri, Jennumara will
be furious at her for all eternity, and believe me a furious Faerie isn't a
very nice Faerie!" Fyora laughed and floated back up with the faeries, they
combined again and spun Neopia around, everyone moved slowly back through where
they had been for the past seven months until they were back to where it all
"Get me that torch!" Dae stuck his head into the space and reached out for
the torch, Fang ran over with it and handed it to him. Dae turned it on and
shone it around the hole, it was no longer a hole, it was a corridor. The light
appeared to be coming from an opening at the end of it. Dae put his paw on the
floor in front of him to test whether it was sturdy, he decided it was and ventured
"Dae, dinner!" Mikey knocked on the basement
door. "What's taking him so long? Toby go down and get your brother!" Mikey
had decided long ago that it was best to leave the inhabitants of the basement
to go into it, after a near miss with a lab ray Dae had been experimenting on
he thought it was best, too.
"Dae?" Toby looked around the room and focused
on the opening in the wall. "Dae?" Tobieras examined the opening again, he wondered
whether or not Dae had gone into it, but why would he, the opening where they
hid everything was next to it. Tobieras watched in amazement as the clouds on
the surrounding walls filled in the gap, if Dae was in there he was staying
in there. "Mikey, you need to come down here quick!" Toby ran to the staircase
and yelled up, his eyes still fixed on the wall. Mikey, Merlina and Kaweo all
ran down the stairs and looked at Toby.
"Tobieras?" Mikey saw he was staring at the
wall and walked over to it and put his hand on the wall. It swung inward revealing
the opening again, he placed his foot inside and placed it down…
"BOO!" Dae jumped out of the opening and smiled.
"Got ya!" he laughed and climbed out of the opening.
"Dae!" Mikey got angry, yet again Dae hadn't
learnt a lesson. Every time he was shouted at he thought it was one big joke!
"I'm sorry Merlina, here's your doll fixed!"
Dae handed his sister a yellow Poogle toy with sticking around the areas where
the stuffing had been coming out, Merlina picked up the toy from Dae's paws
and looked at it.
"Thank you!" She hugged him with a look of disgust
on her face, "Eww you're a stinky boy you smell like you haven't had a wash
for seven months!" Merlina stepped back and an argument started between the
Mikey sighed and left the basement. He walked
over to the fireplace, on top of it rested five balls, each a different colour.
Where did they come from? Mikey picked up a blue one and for a split second
he was gone, memories flooded back to him of the seven months that were ahead
of them, and then he got to the end, the Faerie sending Neopia back to how it
was and it became clear to Mikey what the balls were. He smiled as he placed
the orb back on the fireplace. "Dinner!" Mikey shouted down into the basement
where the occasional "I hate you!" and "Give it back!" could be heard, he laughed
as he sat down at the table, good old times.
Sixty years passed and eventually Mikey, Merlina, Toby and Kaweo passed from
Neopia, DeepMirage was left alone in his eternal life. He moved to live with
the faeries deciding it was too hard for him to live in the home where his family
had lived. It was nice with Faeries, he had his own tower of the castle and
was treated like a hero, because after defeating the shadow Usul he was. He
of course didn't remember Jenifyuri and the shadows, he only remembered the
Usul. Mikey had never spoken of what happened when he picked up his orb, he
kept it hidden, because that's what Fyora and the other faeries had tried to
do. Mikey had tried to tell Dae before he left but something stopped him, instead
he told Dae to find a new owner and a nice family and to keep doing that, but
Dae couldn't, he couldn't find another family like that one, he didn't want
to grow so close to another human that it hurt him every time he thought about
them not being there, he didn't want to pretend to be a youthful pet because
he wasn't, he was old and would stay old for all eternity.
Dae wanted to remember his family and he kept
a box of their possessions to do this. He opened the box and looked inside.
He pulled out a yellow Poogle toy and hugged it, the objects helped him remember
the good times, this was to remember Merlina, he then pulled out a small metal
Kougra, this was to remember Toby. He then took out a baby paint brush with
one drop of the baby colour left on, he laughed as he remembered the blue patch
on Kaweo that had not been covered with the paint brush. He then pulled out
a shoe, Mikey's shoe, he laughed at the time he ran away with it when it was
just those two. He then got to the orbs that Fyora had given them, each one
still glowed but his glowed an unusual colour now, purple!
He picked up the family photo that lay on the
bottom on the box. Mikey was standing in the middle hugging Kaweo, who had a
Wadjet wrapped on his head, Merlina was hovering in the air with a white Noil
in her hands, Toby was on one side of Mikey holding a robot buzzer in his hands
and Dae was on the other side of Mikey holding Fang in his hands. He smiled
at the photo and placed it on the floor with the orb. He decided he was seeing
things when he thought the orb glowed purple, he was an old pet after all. He
shut the box again and placed it under his bed, not knowing that the eyes in
the picture, his eyes in the picture started glowing purple…
