Taken Over By Darkness

by silverkitty_8

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 school.

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 my room.

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 of us!"

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 down?"

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.
