I am the Sand Faerie, guardian of the Lost Desert. You’ve
never heard of me have you? I didn’t think so. I live in the Lost Desert
and I protect the NeoPets that live there. I’m going to tell you what
really happened in Sakhmet. You already know the part about about Brucey
B, but now you’ll hear rest….
You know that all Faeries appear where they’re supposed
to be. Most Faeries appear in Faerieland. Some like the Snow Faerie appear
in different places. I was one of those. I appeared in the middle of the
Lost Desert. I didn’t know what to do when I got there. I mean, Water
Faeries are supposed to heal hurt NeoPets and Light Faeries are supposed
to protect the light and fight evil, but what’s a Sand Faerie supposed
to do? I didn’t know either. So I wandered about aimlessly for a long
time. Then one day I saw a bunch of other Faeries flying overhead.
“Wait!” I said, “ Where are you going?”
"To the city of Sakhmet!" replied one. “We
have to help the NeoPets that are fighting Dr. Sloth!” And then they were
“Dr. Sloth?” I said I had never heard of him. I decided
to go in the direction they went to see what was going on. A few hours
later, I saw something running toward me at full speed. Whatever it was,
it was wailing terribly. As it came closer I saw it was a desert Aisha
and I definitely knew why she was crying like that. Where her eyes were
supposed to be her ears were instead. She wasn’t watching where she was
going and she ran right into me. She started crying even louder.
“What’s wrong?” I asked. (As if I didn’t already know.)
“Dr. Sloth Grundos came and they shot a laser and did
this to me….and then I was trapped under rubble for three hours…And then
everyone was staring at me…And…and…WAAAHHHH!!!!”
“You poor thing,” I said. “Don’t worry, I’m sure that
if I took you to Faerieland the Faerie Queen would fix it.”
“Really?” she said hopefully.
“I’m sure of it,” I replied. “What’s your name?”
“Isfet," she replied.
“Isfet,” I said, “What a pretty name.”
She smiled. “Who are you?” she asked.
“I am the Sand Faerie, guardian of the Lost Desert. And
I'm going to Sakhmet to try and stop Sloth. You want to come?”
Isfet and I had been walking for a long time. Suddenly,
she stopped. “I can't go anymore,” she panted.
“All right, we’ll take a break,” I said. “How far are
we from Sakhmet?”
“A day, maybe,” she replied. “Of course flying it wouldn
t take as long. I wish I could fly.”
“Hmmm…” I said. Suddenly I burst into laughter. “I’m
so stupid! I can fly!”
Isfet joined in my laughter. “I guess I forgot you were
So I picked her up and off we flew. We flew for about
an hour or so and then we spotted the edge of the battlefield.
“But I thought the battle was in Sakhmet?” I said as
we landed in the midst of the battling.
“It is,” she replied. "But a whole bunch of NeoPets
from Neopia came and cut off a bunch of Sloth’s troops. So the battling’s
all spread out.”
An enormous boom made us turn around. A red Cybunny had
just been hit by a huge fire attack. He struggled to stand up. He pulled
out a professional bow and aimed at the Grundo Commander he was fighting.
But before he could hit it, the Grundo hit him with another fire attack.
The Cybunny crumpled to the ground. The Grundo Commander gave him one
last look, chuckled, and left. Someone screamed, “Lance!” We turned around.
A green Usul was running toward us.
She knelt down next to Lance and said, ”I told you that
you weren’t strong enough, you idiot.” She used a couple of healing potions
on him and he sat up.
“I’ll get him next time,” he growled.
“No you won’t,” said the Usul.
“Ursula," he groaned.
“No! Siriusvapor7 said this was the last time. You’re
hurt badly enough as it is.”
Then a blue Eyrie landed next to us and said, “Ursula!
Lance! Have you guys seen Acara?”
“Acara?” said Lance.
“She did,” the Eyrie nodded his head sadly.
“Oh, Buckbeak, I thought she was with you and siriusvapor7?”
“She was, but then we went to the guild and we turned
our backs for a few seconds and then she was gone. And you know how much
she wanted to fight…..”
“Oh no!” gasped Ursula. “Knowing her, she’ll go for
the strongest ones.”
“You guys go look for her,” said Lance.
“And leave you here?” said Ursula. “No way! You’re too
stupid to not try and fight them again.”
He glared at her. She glared back.
“We’ll stay with him,” said Isfet.
“Ummm…” Ursula seemed a bit taken aback by Isfet’s appearance.
Buckbeak and Lance, however, didn’t seem to be paying attention. “Uhh…”
faltered Ursula. “All right. C’mon, Buckbeak, let’s go find that little
rat.” She jumped on Buckbeak’s back and they flew away.
Lance said, "Hi, I’m Lance.”
Isfet introduced us. I’m Isfet of Sakhmet and this is
the Sand Faerie. We’re going to Sakhmet to help stop Sloth. Wanna come?”
