"HeckDragonX!" yelled BurnDragonX. "Someone has come
to see you!"
"Coming," I said. I am HeckDragonX, the Tyrannian
Shoyru and there are three more people living with me. I entered the Forbidden
Lounge. "Greetings, fellow Neopian!" I said. "Let's see. Where will I start?"
There I was in the darkness of Sloth's Dungeon.
The cries and screams of other prisoners echoed off the walls like the screech
of a bat.
"I'm sorry! I am way in head of myself," I said.
"Let's start from the beginning, but before I begin I would like to tell you
something. If you have already read Legend of the Baby Shoyru, then you might
think that the beginning of my story is very similar. That is, because the legend
was based on my life story."
One night, when we were playing Neoquest, the
most hideous creatures intruded upon our land and attacked us. I tried to protect
Neiks3, but the mutants were too strong for us to handle and we were brought
to our knees. I had awoken in the most vile place of the Virtupets Space Station.
A guard approached.
"It is time," said the guard. I didn't know what
he meant, but he sure said it in an unusual way. I walked into the light. It
was so bright that it seemed like I hadn't seen any light for weeks. All of
a sudden, everything went black. I had awoken to the sound of a crash. I heard
someone yelling. I gathered the strength to get up. Suddenly a dark shadow fell
"It's you!" I said.
"I am the one and only Dr. Frank Sloth!" said
the figure. "Of course you should know that by now. Are you ready to become
part of my collection of slaves? This won't hurt a bit." Sloth reached for the
handle and a shot was fired! Everyone stopped moving. It seemed like time froze.
The fire was not on me! It wasn't even made by Dr. Sloth. I noticed that Sloth
was looking up. Out came a figure from the hole in the ceiling. It was the Space
"Leave him alone, Sloth!," said the Space Faerie.
The Space Faerie unstrapped me from the table and we ran for the door.
"Get them!" commanded Sloth. The same two creatures
who kidnapped me came out of nowhere. The Space Faerie started to shoot them
and hit one. The other one jumped on the ceiling and pounced her.
"Run to the launch pad I will handle the guards,"
said the Space Faerie. I waited at the launch pad for a minute then saw guards
running towards me. I managed to defeat them easily, but I had to leave right
away. I started the count down. 10, 9, 8. Suddenly, the Space Faerie appeared
running towards the launch pad. 7, 6, 5. Then I saw Sloth slither out of the
darkness and aim his gun at the faerie. 4, 3, 2. At the last second, Sloth fired
his gun and hit the Space Faerie.
"No!" I yelled. The shuttle took off leaving
the Space Faerie on the floor of the launch pad. "I have got to go back and
save her. Wait, what is that sound? It's another ship!" I said. I could see
the same creature in the front seat that had pounced the Space Faerie. "Isn't
there any weapons on this thing? Here is one! I can't read their form of code,
but it is worth a try," I said. I pressed the button. All of a sudden, a disco
ball came out of the ceiling and started to spin around slowly. "It makes you
wonder," I said. In panic, I started pressing buttons randomly. The creature
tried to shoot me with his laser cannon, but I dodged it. The ship disappeared.
"Wait, there is more than one dot on my radar. They must be using stealth devices.
This radar will help me lock on to those ships," I thought. The dots on the
screen turned red. "I have got them all locked on target," I said. All of a
sudden, they started shooting at me. I fired as quickly as I could. There were
several explosions. "It looks like the leader dodged my fire," I thought. He
retreated back to the space station, but I shot him anyway. A screen came on
in front of me with the same hideous face I hated so much. "Why are you doing
this?" I asked.
"To rule Neopia of course," said Sloth. "Now
that I have the Space Faerie, I'm going to experiment on her and make her a
mutant! I would like to thank you, because if you weren't here I wouldn't have
"You monster!" I yelled. "I will destroy you
and your space station."
"Good thing I planned ahead and put a bomb in
the shuttle you are in," said Sloth. "Good bye, HeckDragonX!"
There is no way I'm dying when I know he is
still alive, I thought. I used Bubble Shield. I opened the hatch and started
floating towards the Space Station. When I was a couple yards from the ship,
it exploded. The explosion sent me hurtling into space. When I had awoken, I
was in the landing bay of the space station. Guards surrounded me and started
to carry me away. I was carried to the dungeon. Right when they tried to put
me in the cell I sprang from their grip. They started running after me. I hung
on to a chain connected to the ceiling and used Shoyru Dive. "Two down two to
go," I said. Now, I used Lava Spit. The last two guards ran around in circles
and fell to the floor. I threw the four guards into the cell. I was about to
close the door when I saw a dark figure appear next to me. He stepped into the
light. It was Commander Garoo. All of a sudden, he punched me. I used Demon
Breath and Garoo started getting nauseated. I grabbed for his keys when he wasn't
looking and pushed him into the cell. When the commander hit the wall, I locked
I ran through the hallways, upstairs, and downstairs.
A sign read "Sector 1." I walked until I found a door. Upon entering the room,
I saw three mutant Aishas. They were working on something. The room looked like
a small laboratory. Next to me I saw a gun. The kind that makes Neopets into
these monsters. I read a book on how one of these things work. I adjusted the
settings. "Over here!" I yelled.
"Get him!" yelled mutant Aisha 1 as he turned
around. I shot them all before they could reach me. They all turned back to
their original forms.
"What is that thing?" I asked.
"That is Prototype_Barry!" said Aisha 1.
"He was suppose to be evil, but he turned out
to be very kind. Dr. Sloth did not take it very well," said Aisha 2.
"We were about to fix the problem, but now since
we are free we don't have to do anything with him," said Aisha 3.
"You could wake him up and take him with you
if you want," said Aisha 2. I approached the sheet and uncovered the prototype.
"It is a baby Shoyru?" I asked.
"Yes, but it will grow up," said Aisha 3. He
opened his eyes.
"Barry. Someone has come to see you," said Aisha
"You will now be going with this Shoyru," said
"He will grow faster than regular Shoyru. He
will be full grown in twenty four hours," said Aisha 3. I continued my quest
with Barry following me.
"Look Barry! It is a transmitter!" I said. I
set everything up and sent my message. I told them that many Neopets were stuck
on the space station and we needed people to send ships to pick them up.
"Who are you?" asked a voice. I turned around
to see someone who looked like Dr_Death.
"I am here to shut down this space station,"
"Maybe if you pass my test I will help you,"
said the stranger. He pulled out a remote and pushed a button. A metal cage
formed around him. Two doors opened and two mutant Lupes lunged at me. I used
Boil and the Lupes slowed down. The first Lupe used Fiery Gaze. The second Lupe
"You two are finished!" I yelled. I jumped and
attacked with an Ultranova. The Lupes fainted.
"Very good, but can you handle this?" asked the
stranger. Another door opened and out walked the hideous creature it withheld.
"What is that?" I asked.
"I call it the Fire Grarrl! This is no ordinary
Fire Grarrl. It has just been named that because it can withstand fire," said
"Well, if he isn't weak against fire, he is weak
against water!" I exclaimed. I used Watery Guardian. The Fire Grarrl fainted.
"I see you are out of magic power," said the
stranger. "Let's see how you do against a Chia Bomber!" Once again, another
door opened and out came the Space Faerie.
"Your plans have been changed, Dr. Livingston!"
said the Space Faerie.
"What have you done with Chia Bomber?" asked
"Let's just say that it is currently not available,"
said the Space Faerie.
"Too bad. You almost caught me, too!" said Dr.
Livingston. All of a sudden, a wall closed over on her side of the room. "Now
for my escape," said Dr. Livingston.
"Wait, weren't you going to help me?" I asked.
"Take the elevator to Sector 3. You might have
some trouble getting through it, but it is the shortest way," said the scientist.
"One more thing! Do you know Dr_Death?" I asked.
"Indeed. He is my brother," said Dr. Livingston
as he disappeared in a cloud of smoke. All of a sudden, there was a loud explosion.
As the smoke cleared, a hole formed in the wall. Out walked the Space Faerie.
"Ready to go?" asked the Space Faerie.
"How come Dr. Livingston's personality is so
calm, while Dr_Death has a mean attitude? What puzzles me is how did Dr. Livingston
get stuck working for Dr. Sloth," I said.
"It is a long story, just like this baby Shoyru
you have following you around," said the Space Faerie.
"You mean Barry?" I asked. "Wait. How did you
get away from Sloth?" All of a sudden, the Space Faerie froze.
"What?" I asked as the Space Faerie covered my
"Do you hear that?" the Space Faerie whispered.
"No," I replied.
"Get ready to run," said the Space Faerie.
"What?" I asked.
"Now!" said the Space Faerie.
"Intruders! Get them!" yelled Grundo Guard 1.
The three guards started to shoot at us.
"This way!" said the Space Faerie as we turned
"There's an elevator!" I yelled. Without warning,
three more Grundos dropped out of air vents and started shooting at us.
"You and Barry head for the elevator! I will
take care of these guards!" ordered the Space Faerie. We did as we were told
and got inside the elevator. The Space Faerie was able to hold off the second
group of mutant Grundos, but the first group avoided her with ease.
"I think this is the time we make our escape!"
I said to Barry. Two of the three Grundos dived for the elevator as we were
closing the doors. I kicked one, but only hit the gun out of his hand. They
both made it, but the other one collided into the door as it shut.
"I should kill him now!" said Grundo 1.
"Go right ahead," said Grundo 3. The Grundo guard
pulled the trigger.
