Looking for Trouble

by ticketytock2kay

LemonYellow the Lemon Chia was hopping about excitedly beside his owner. "I don't believe I have a new brother Wocky!" he blurted out for the hundredth time. His brother, Trouble_2002, was very cute and adorable glowing Wocky, with soft padded paws and a lightning mark on his belly. Kerry nodded, saying, "He is a dear little thing, so cute, so wonderful, so.. perfect!"

LemonYellow could not agree more. He pawed his brother's forehead, and the little Wocky cooed gently, holding onto his bigger brother's paw.

A few months later...

"Can't I get some peace around here? Why does that annoying brother of mine have to listen to that awful M*YNCI CD every single day! Doesn't he know they lip-sync?" LemonYellow the Chia slammed his bedroom door, and covered his ears with his paws. The M*YNCI song could still be heard, blasting from the radio outside.

At dinner, their owner, Kerry, gave each of them a Cheese Sandwich and a Vanilla Milkshake each. She looked at them apologetically. "I'm sorry Lemon, Trouble, but I forgot to go to the grocery store today." Trouble grinned a sickeningly sweet smile, and began to eat his sandwich, saying, "Oh Kerry, anything you get is fine with me." Kerry gulped down her Neocola, patting her Wocky on the back. Then she left the dining room, just as Trouble finished eating his sandwich.

Once she was out of sight and earshot, the Wocky grabbed his brother's half-eaten sandwich and gulped it down, laughing hysterically at LemonYellow, who looked as if he was going to burst into tears.

That night, after watching "Wocky Wonderful", a show on TV, Trouble padded up to his room, and went off to sleep. Five minutes later, LemonYellow went upstairs as well. Instead of going to his room, he went into his brother's, armed with a long bedsheet.

"ARGGGHH!!!" Trouble yelped, as LemonYellow threw the bedsheet over him. Being older and stronger, LemonYellow lifted his brother easily, who was imprisoned inside the sheet, and walked downstairs, not taking notice of his brother's yells.

The Chia then dumped his annoying brother right outside the adoption centre. He knew his brother had never seen the place, and would not know the way back home. As soon as he put down the bedsheet, he turned quickly round the corner and fled back home, amazed at what he had done. Then, his heart pounding in his fruity chest, he went to bed.

It was an hour later when Kerry went upstairs to check on her pets that she found out to her horror that her beloved Wocky was gone. She cried for a moment, then realised that no time must be wasted, and alerted LemonYellow that his brother was gone. The Chia pretended to be shocked and worried and agreed to help look for the Wocky he had abandoned. He led her everywhere his brother wasn't - to the Bakery, the Food Shop, around their NeoHome, the Mystery Island Training School, but of course, they never found him. Kerry told LemonYellow to go back home and sleep, and she would look for her Wocky.

LemonYellow agreed, knowing that although she would probably find the irritating, silly, arrogant and beloved brother of his, the Wocky would be sure to have been taught a lesson. "Serves him right," he muttered under his breath, as he went to bed.

As Kerry walked down the pathway back to her NeoHome, she ran into a Chia Policeman. He asked her what she was doing, wandering around late at night in her bedroom slippers and a night-gown. Despairingly, she threw up her hands and said, "I'm looking for Trouble."
