Malist woke up as a new-born Lupe pup. He was blue and had a yellow birthmark
shaped as a Chia. He looked at his father Chanalmist and his mother Recalis.
Chanalmist smiled. "He is perfect. The perfect Chia hunter!"
Three Weeks Later...
Malist was darting off into the forest. Recalis had something to show him
and told him to meet her in Chia forest. Recalis was ten miles away so Malist
had to run far far away. Along the way, Recalis saw a butterfly and suddenly
wanted to chase it. He ran off trying to catch the butterfly. Finally, he gave
up and ate a type of fruit nearby.
Malist looked around and only saw empty empty forest. He had lost his way.
He whimpered and wandered off deeper into the forest. Suddenly, Whack! Malist
Malist opened his eyes three hours later. He looked around and saw a Chia
tribe with the leader and three guards looking an evil look at him.
"Ah!" shouted the leader. "Another baby Lupe! They start them off young and
turn them into ferocious hunters!"
"Huh?" said Malist Questionably.
"Lupes hunt us Chias! We can't have the population grow! We must get rid of
all Lupes! And fast!!!!"
Malist whimpered in fear. He knew exactly what was going to happen next. Malist
was being carried toward a blazing bonfire. A baby Chia looked at him in the
eye with a sad look. Then he saw the birthmark and his eyes bulged. He ran from
his mother's grasp and stood in front of the bonfire blocking the way.
"NNNNNNNNOOOOOO!" he cried. "Don't you see the birthmark? Don't you see he
is the one that hates Chias? Don't you see?"
The leader check the Lupe and indeed. He did find the birthmark.
"My!" he said. "You're right, young Chia! Change of plans! We have to keep
this one alive and hidden!"
"You mean..." Malist started. "I won't see my mother again?"
The leader stared at Malist. "Yes."
Malist whimpered in disbelief, but inside he knew. It was true. His parents
were wrong. He would not be a fine Chia hunter. He would be a fine Chia lover.
Three Weeks Later...
Malist was playing with Poncil, his friend that saved him from the bonfire.
"Hey Poncil!" said Malist.
"What?" said Poncil.
"About the bonfire."
They tumbled on each other until they fell into a pit.
"AAAIIIIEEEEE!!!!!!" They both screamed until they hit the ground.
They woke up ten minutes later. This time they were surrounded by Lupes.
"Ah!" the leader Lupe said. "A Chia AND a Lupe! What a surprise! Looks like
they were fighting each other and fell into our trap!"
"No!" said Malist.
"You don't understand!" said Poncil.
"If you are having trouble young Lupe," said the leader. "Let the battle begin!"
He shoved them both into the arena and shut the door tight.
"Oh no!" said Malist.
"What are we going to do?" Asked Poncil.
"I don't know."
"Well you should. You're a Lupe."
"Part of a pack. Ever since I met you, I won't let myself eat a Chia. Don't
they see the birthmark?"
All the Lupes were chanting, "FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!"
"Whatever you do..." said Poncil, "Don't fight."
"My heart is not made for fighting Chias."
Finally, the crowd got impatient and fell asleep. Malist and Poncil found
a loose stone, and pushed it open putting them in a deep tunnel. Poncil got
onto Malist's back and ran through the tunnel but after three miles of running,
Malist ran right into another Lupe. Malist looked up at the Lupe's eyes and
then he knew. He was face to face with his mother.
"Malist!" shouted Recalis. "I don't believe it! I thought you were--"
"No mum," said Malist, motioning Poncil to hide behind him. Unfortunately,
"What are you hiding?"
"Let me see!"
"No!" But it was too late.
After five minutes of Malist unsuccessfully trying to explain, they went off
running with Recalis chasing them.
"You were never my son!" shouted Recalis.
After eight miles, they approached a dead end. Recalis cackled and shouted,
"I shall be the only one in the family alive!"
"Wait a minute!" Malist shouted. "You mean my father was destroyed?"
"And so was your sister and brother who were doing a fine time until they
were captured! I got rid of the that terrible Chia tribe!"
"No, no... NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"Its too late! Goodbye Malist!!!!!!!" She leaped and suddenly, everything
Malist woke up about nine hours later. He was being carried by Recalis. He
looked and saw yellow fur across her chin. A burning pain came in Malist's heart.
Poncil became a little snack. A tear went down his cheek as Malist was dropped
into the water. Malist suddenly felt himself shrinking and turning into a baby
Lupe. Recalis picked up Malist out of the water when Malist turned one second
Malist was one hour old in age by the time Recalis got him to the Create-A-Pet
station. Malist realised that he would not be wild anymore.
Malist was sitting on the carpeted floor filled with other Lupes. He saw one
finishing a shower. He saw another chewing on a Chia punching bag. He saw another
sitting alone near the door on the cold hard side of the floor crying. Malist
walked over to him and asked very kindly, "What's wrong?"
"Oh," replied the baby Lupe. I was captured by a Chia tribe and adapted to
them. Then they were destroyed and I was alone. I wandered in the forest alone
until I fell asleep. I woke up and and everybody called me Chia Lover! Now that's
my nickname instead of my real name which is Rose," she started crying
"The same thing happened to me," said Malist. "Except I had made a friend."
"Wait a minute!" shouted Rose. "Are you telling me you lost your friend and
your own mother made you younger and put you here and that you were supposed
to be wild?"
Both of them started hanging around together and when the torn Chia punchbag
was free, they cuddled near it and made sure no one hurt it. One day, they were
doing that when a small girl with a Bruce and a Chia came in. "Aw... they are
SOO cute! We must have one or two that DOESN'T harm Chias or we will have to
give our cutie Plisel away!"
She looked around and just couldn't decide! She didn't see Rose or Malist.
She saw every Lupe ripping up Chias and doing plays where there is a part where
a Chia is tormented. The girl was about to give up when a yellow Lupe was tearing
up her nice Chia pants. She kicked him away and fell to the ground and noticed
both Rose and Malist was being pushed away by very mean Lupes. Rose and Malist
growled at them to get away but soon they were pushed toward the hard cold side
of the ground. They whimpered and sat down head low.
"I guess I just feel sorry for them," the girl said. The girl walked over
and picked up Rose and Malist. She took them out of the room and asked for their
names. Then she walked out of the Create-A-Pet station. Both Rose and Malist
were now hers.
"By the way," said Malist when they walked out. "What's your name?"
"Somehow you remind me of my long lost Chia friend Poncil."
"Yeah. You have the same name," Malist cuddled up against Poncil.
Poncil smiled. "Come with me! I have a present for you!"
When they got home, Rose and Malist went toward the two presents. One for
Rose, one for Malist. They ripped it open. Rose got a picture of a Chia and
Lupe pack working together to make Neopia a better place. Malist got a picture
of a Lupe pup and a baby Chia.
They all lived as wealthy and happy Lupes. In the future, they were the Chia
protectors. They traveled all around Neopia showing their peace to Chias. Yet
they still have the pain of the past they lived through with Rose losing her
Chia tribes to the Lupes and Malist losing his best best friend.
A note from the author: All of these characters are made up. There are no pets
are usernames named poncil and Malist. They came from the top of my head. Rose
is just a name that I just LOVE. And tribes, you guessed it, made up. I hope you
enjoyed my story. Neomail me for compliments :)
