Talk to the Paw

by pocketmouse50

Violet Jane opened her eyes on the dim sunlight on the thirty-first day of Celebrating, Y3. She yawned, and put her small Usul feet on the cold floor. She shivered, and gazed around her tiny, brick NeoHome Bedroom. Violet, as she was more commonly known, jumped up, and quickly brushed her fur, putting a matching blue ribbon in. She almost flew down the stairs to her owner.

"Mummy! Mummy! How do I look? Do I look okay? I want to look nice for my first day of Neoschool!" she said, almost in one breath. Her owner yawned, and petted her on the head.

"You look lovely, don't you worry." She yawned, again, and gave Violet her Yes Boy Ice-cream lunchbox. "Now off to school!"

As Violet walked up to the seemingly large building, she wanted to turn right back home. It was her first day of school, ever! She felt tears sting her eyes, but wiped them away.

"As Mummy would say, most tears are Grarrl tears," she whispered to herself. She sniffed, and walked into the school building.

"Okay class, time for Science" Mr. Sampson said in his nasally voice. He walked over to a cross-diagram of an Acara. "Considering you are all... juveniles, I decided to start off with the body of you young NeoPets," he continued, walking back and forth, his glowing Wocky fur swishing.

Violet didn't know what 'Juvenile' meant, but she took offence to it anyway. He took out his pointer, and whacked it on his picture.

"This is an Acara. It has two large ears with horns on the side..." Violet stopped listening, and spent the rest of the lesson looking outside the window. She only moved when the Lunch bell rang. She got up, and walked outside, hugging her books. She sat down on a bench, and opened up her lunch. She was just about to eat her Cheese and Onion Omelette, when a tough looking Poogle pushed Violet's soft face in her lunch.

"What was that for?" she demanded, inhaling some Cheesey goodness. The Poogle shrugged, as Violet wiped some Onion from her blue collar.

"I did it for fun," the bully shrugged.

Violet Jane, the small, insignificant NeoPet stood up to her highest point, and said loud and clear, as pieces of Omelette dripped from her small frame, said, "I'll get you back for this, even if I get expelled!"

The Poogle laughed and waltzed off, leaving Violet laughed at.

***

That night, Violet pondered about how to get back at the Poogle. She was popular, that was for sure. Her father was the Mayor of Neopia. Her name was Jade Fisher, she had found out. And she was Starry coloured, and had perfect stats. She was the smartest student, so the only thing Violet could beat her at was... "Being bad!" She thought out loud, on her bed. "Oh, but get a bad name on my first week? I couldn't do that! Or can I?"

Jade Fisher, the Perfect NeoPet, in every way and matter, except kindness, was shocked. Violet Jade Peterson, the small Usul had beaten her in their first week of schooling, and still had a good reputation with the teachers and most of the students. And not only that, she had been painted Faerie.

When she saw Violet, a few days after the Omelette incident, Violet had walked into the classroom, wings and all. Most of the students just stared at her, while others laughed at Jade. When the students tried touching Violets wings, or say sorry for laughing at her, all she said was "Put a Negg in it", "Talk to the paw", or some other good comeback. She was especially cruel to Jade.

"Ah, I'm sorry for the, ah, omelette, Violet," she said.

"It's Miss Peterson to you, Jade. And forget it; your... lame apologies aren't worth it.... I've won! Okay? And I still have a good reputation! And there's nothing you can do about it," she sung, and walked off, her arms wound around the hands of Jade's old friends.

A tear streaked down Jade's face, as the principal put her hand on Jade's shoulder. Jade looked up.

"So I hear you've been harassing a few of your classmates with Cheese and Onion Omelettes, Miss Jade Fisher?"
