Taken Over By Darkness
Hi, my names Clairdelune_ and I'm gonna tell you a story about Darkness. I
love Neopia, its a real nice place to live, Neopia has a lot of good qualities
and some... not so good. Now, I'm not going to tell you all the good things
about Neopia because I'm here to tell you all about the bad. I know, a little
depressing, but it just might keep you safe from those naughty Neopians spreading
disaster. Now, the tricky thing about bad Neopians is that they can disguise
themselves so that they don't seem bad, and yes it is very hard to tell whether
someone's trying to trick you or if there really sincere, and I guess I sort
of learned that the hard way.
Okay, so one day I was walking to school with my sister Twilight when we passed
the Magic Shop; it looked interesting so we decided to check it out. Inside
there were shelves of bottles filled with weird looking concoctions. We talked
to Kauvara the shop owner, and she told us what some of the stuff was: there
were morphing potions, stuff for the Battledome and all kinds of other weird
looking potions, but everything was too expensive so we left and headed towards
Later, after school, me and Twilight walked past the Magic Shop again, only
this time there was a Wocky standing outside. The Wocky approached and smiled,
she was a white Wocky with perfect teeth and she was very pretty. Anyway, she
walked up to us and said "Hey, any one of you interested in buying this?" In
the Wocky's hands was a small bottle filled with a grayish goo, I looked up
at her and said "Ewww! What is it?" the wocky smiled and said "Well, it's a
magical potion, it'll give everything you've ever wanted!" Now, since I'm just
a little Aisha, who'll believe anything, I bought it from the strange Wocky.
Later, when Twilight and I got home, Silverkitty_8 scolded me for wasting
NeoPoints on such rubbish, but I just told her that the potion was magical,
and it would give me what I most desired, but Silverkitty_8 just sighed and
said "Clairdelune, that was a lie! That potion is probably grape soda or something,
it's not really magical."
Nowm this made me mad... I knew it was magical, so I said "NO! You're wrong,
this is a REAL magical potion, and I'll prove it!" and then I stomped off to
Later, after everyone had gone to sleep, I decided I really was going to prove
that the potion was real, so I pulled the cork off the top of the bottle. The
potion smelled sour, and I almost didn't drink it, but I knew I had to prove
this was a real potion. So I drank the potion, the whole potion... at first
I just wanted to throw up, but then I started to feel really tired, so I decided
to just go to sleep.
The next morning when I woke up, I felt kinda groggy. I walked to the bathroom
to brush my teeth, and just as I was squeezing the toothpaste on my toothbrush
I glanced in the mirror, my face was all gray, my whole body was dark gray,
I screamed and ran outta the bathroom. Silverkitty_8 ran up the stairs, followed
by Twilight. They both looked at me, alarmed and frightened. Silverkitty_8 asked,
"Clairdelune are you okay?", and Twilight asked "What happened to you???"
At this point I was just as confused as they were, I didn't know what happened
to me! Then, I remembered, "THE POTION!" I shrieked, Silverkitty_8 and Twilight
gave me that same confused look, so then I explained to them how I drank that
potion the Wocky gave me.
Silverkitty_8 looked at me and said "Well, there's only one thing to do...
find that Wocky."
After school, Twilight and I went looking for that Wocky. We'd been looking
for hours when we came upon a small little cave, it was actually a little hangout
called the Art Centre. A lot of people hangout there late in the evening. So
we decided to check it out; Twilight and I walked in the two glass doors and
into the Coffee Shoppe, and that's when we spotted her, the white Wocky who
had scammed into buying that weird potion. I walked up to her, she looked up,
and gasped, she gave me an awkward smile
"Hi" she said nervously, "What are you two doing here?"I looked over at Twilight,
she was glaring at the Wocky. I calmly asked the Wocky what that potion she
gave me really was, she looked nervous again. "Uh... what are you talking about?"
"WHAT? YOU KNOW WHAT IS SHE TALKING ABOUT? WHAT DOES THAT POTION YOU SCAMMED
MY LITTLE SISTER INTO BUYING REALLY DO?!?!" Twilight shrieked. Now I could tell
Twilight was losing her patience, so I guess I had to be the calm one.
I looked at the Wocky and said, very calmly "Okay, now just tell me what that
potion really did."
The Wocky looked angry now, she stood up and said in a harsh, raspy voice "You
wanna know what it did? Can't you see what it did! You've been taken over by
darkness, its true, you are no longer a sweet little yellow Aisha, you are a
shadow Aisha, you've been taken over by the shadowed world, you are now one
Now I was a bit worried; one of them? What did that mean, so I asked, "What
do you mean one of us?"
Now the Wocky was breathing hard, "I mean you are one of us!"
Twilight had the same angry look. "YOU MEAN YOU MADE MY SISTER EVIL?!?"
The angry look disappeared from the Wocky's face and she answered "No, we are
not evil. We are the shadow people, its a group, and your sister is the chosen
one, she has been chosen to be out newest member."
After dinner I went into my room and looked in the mirror one more time. I
looked the same as when I woke up: I was dark gray, I didn't look too bad, it's
just that I don't think that potion change my looks, I think it might have done
something to my insides. Later I tried to do my homework, but I just couldn't
concentrate, so I decided just to go to sleep. That night I tossed and turned,
and had the creepiest dream. When I woke up, I couldn't remember what I had
dreamed, all I could remember is that it was creepy.
After breakfast I went down to the Coffee Shope and had a cup of strong berry
java and a tigersquash iced bun. As I finished my coffee, I saw that same white
Wocky. She was walking towards me, when she looked down and said "May I sit
I very cautiously said, "Uh... yeah, sure."
She sat across from me and smiled, "You know, Darkness isn't evil; they're
two completely different things."
There was a long pause, then she continued, "I can understand how you'd be
mad, but you have to understand, so many people spread rumors about us that
we cant get many members, and besides you were the chosen one."
I looked up at her and replied, "Okay, that's fine with me."
Then we both walked out of the Coffee Shope together, and that's when I knew
I had no choice. I had been taken over by darkness, and there was nothing I
could do to stop it.
