The wind was blowing non-stop. I heard the front door creek. But everyone was
sleeping, and didn't hear the noise. Then CRASH! Something fell over and I didn't
feel to good. I screamed into my pillow so the others didn't hear.
Every year we have School camp at Neopia School. This year we went to Camp
Country and it had to be in the Haunted Woods! It looked liked a tornado hit
it because it was SO beat up! When we got here the Caretaker warned us about
a ghost that lived here thousands of years ago, that Dr. Sloth created. But
we knew at the time he was joking because he burst out laughing. But now I think
he was right...
I forgot to tell you my name is Cowleaf and I am a striped Kau. The next day
I played with my best friends Dino Print the Chomby and Glistening Ocean the
Kau. I told them what happened last night. Glistening Ocean didn't believe me,
but Dino Print thought she heard something too.
"Come on! You know there's no such thing as ghosts!" said Glistening
Ocean. My tummy rumbled.
"How do you know miss smarty paints!" cried Dino Print.
"Come on you two enough fighting and let's get on with the point,"
Just then Ms. Uni came into the the room. "Come on. Hurry up or you will
be left behind," she said.
"Where are we going?" asked Dino Print.
"We are going to go see the museum in the camp here. It's just in that
brick building over there." She pointed out the window to a big building
that said: "Old Museum Of The Olden Days Thousands Of Years Ago".
"Okay then, grab your note books and pencil cases and meet the class
outside the building at the main entrance," said Ms. Uni with a smile.
When we got there it looked a little creepy because some windows were smashed
and the door had holes that looked like someone was shooting at the door.
"Gulp," I swallowed hard.
Once we had got our tickets the Caretaker was showing us round. "This
stinks!" said Glistening Ocean. We moved on. After looking at five or six
things a vase got pushed over!
"Ahhhh!" screamed Dino Print. I felt horrible.
"What was that!" said the Caretaker.
"WHO did that!" cried Ms. Uni.
"Darn! The boss is going to write me up!" said the Caretaker.
"Eek!" cried Dino Print.
Glistening Ocean was just quiet. She looked like she just saw a ghost.
"Are you all right, Glistening Ocean?" I said a little scared.
There was a pause.
"Meeee?!" she said.
"Ummm... Yea you," I said.
"He he he hee, yeah... never felt better," she said.
I knew something was up, though; I've never seen her like that. I hoped she
was just homesick.
"Is it hot in here or is it just me?" she said.
"Glistening Ocean!" I yelled.
"You're wearing a T-shirt and I'm wearing a long sleeved shirt and I'm
not hot!" I said.
"Well, it's morning tea now, so go get your snacks," said Ms. Uni.
"So we can clean this mess up."
So we all went and got our snacks. I decided to spend my playtime to talk with
Glistening Ocean. "Glistening Ocean, come on!"
"Oh! Sorry!" she said.
"Let's sit down here," I said.
"Okay." She was quiet the whole time unless I got her to speak.
I could not bare it any more I had to ask her this ONE question. "Did you
see a ghost?" I asked. She shivered. I looked at my watch, a minute had
gone by. "Well?"
"Do really want to know?" I nodded.
"Well, I did. I saw a ghost!" she said.
"This camp is definitely haunted!" I said. Glistening Ocean nodded
in a agreement. "And we have to keep it a secret! Okay?" I said.
"Yeah," said Glistening Ocean.
"Did the ghost have like, any personality?" I asked.
"Yeah, well sort of..."
"Like what?!" I said with a smile.
"It sort of looked like the Pant Devil..."
"You're kidding!" I cried
"Nope," said Glistening Ocean.
"This is really creepy."
"Yeah, tell me about it," said Glistening Ocean.
"Should we tell Dino Print?" she asked.
"No, not till lunch."
"Right," she said.
"How are we going to tell the teacher?" I asked.
"I don't know, because she would think were crazy!"
Ding Ding Ding! The bell went. Morning tea was over.
"We'll discuss it more at lunch," she said.
"Okay Class. We are now going to head back to the main building,"
said Ms. Uni.
I couldn't stop thinking about the Pant Devil. I wanted to stay close by to
my things in case he was trying to grab hold of them. We were back at the main
"Okay, I want you all to get your sketch pads and pencils and come join
me in the meeting room," said Ms. Uni. After drawing our favourite thing
at the museum we had some time to ourselves.
I ran to the room we were sleeping in. Glistening Ocean was there at her space
sorting though all her things. I ran over to my area right next to Glistening
Ocean and Dino Print. "Hi, sorry I'm late!" I said.
"Oh my gosh!" I said
"I forgot to tell you! I found of faerie on the way here!"
"You what!?" cried Glistening Ocean.
"The Pant Devil must be after the faerie I caught," I said.
"Which one was it?" asked Glistening Ocean.
"It was the Faerie QUEEN!"
"That's the rarest of them all!"
I started searching in by bags. A couple minutes went by.
"Is it there?" asked Glistening Ocean.
"NO!" I said with a little tear in my eye.
"How are we going to get it back?!" I cried.
"I don't know..."
"You battle people right?" she asked.
"Um... yessss... why?"
"Well maybe you could battle him and make him give it back."
"That's a great idea!" I said. "But I would have to win! Or
else things could get ugly!"
We all laughed.
"Well, I got this Grand Lightning Beam for Christmas and I will never
use it because I don't battle," she said.
"Could I use it?!" I asked.
"And I got a Rainbow Frost Cannon which are really powerful too!"
"So that's two really powerful items. And the most you can get is eight
I nodded. "So we need more..." I said. "Let's go ask Dino Print."
Dino Print was outside playing with some other NeoPets. "Hi, Dino Print!"
said Glistening Ocean. "Oh! Hi guys! What are you up to?"
"Um, We were wondering if you had any really powerful Battledome items,"
"Well I have a Ultra Bubble Beam that I have never used. If that helps,"
"That's perfect!" said Glistening Ocean. "Okay I'll just go
get it for you." She came back holding the Ultra Bubble Beam.
"Thank you so much!" I said.
"No problem," she said.
"See ya!" said Glistening Ocean.
"I also have a Kau Helmet and a pair of Kau Hoof Guards," I said.
"That's good," said Glistening Ocean.
"So that's five... Oh! I also have a Orb of the Fire Faerie which are
very useful!" said Glistening Ocean.
"Just two more things...." I said. "I got it! My Supersize Mega
Ultra Plus and my Cloud Charm!"
"Yes! That's eight!"
"We're all prepared!" said Glistening Ocean.
"Now let's go find the Pant Devil and go somewhere nobody will see us!"
"Okay!" said Glistening Ocean.
After searching almost the whole camp Glistening Ocean spotted him. He was
hiding behind a tree holding the faerie I caught.
"There he is! That's the Pant Devil all right," said Glistening Ocean.
I stepped forward. He looked at me with his round shiny eyes. "Pant Devil,
I challenge you to a fight!" I said.
He put the Faerie down and came closer. He nodded. The fight was going to start
when Glistening Ocean said start.
I quickly grabbed my Grand Lightning Beam and shot it right at him. He zapped
at me with his hands. I ducked. It just missed me. I shot a cannon from my Rainbow
Frost Cannon. I could tell he wasn't going to last much longer. He came racing
at me with full speed ready to do a head butt. I didn't know what to do! I quickly
put on my Kau Helmet and let him head butt me. He was knocked out! I won the
fight! Glistening Ocean came racing at me and gave me a big hug.
"Well done!" she said with a huge smile.
"The Faerie!" I said.
We dashed and grabbed the Faerie. I ran over to the Pant Devil and said, "Never
ever bother us again!"
"Do you think he will come back?" asked Glistening Ocean.
"Well, he would be really stupid to!" I said with a huge smile.
