A hammock slowly swung in the fresh spring breeze, and
the sun shone down merrily on the dirty white pelt of a young Lupe. His red
bangs fell on his muzzle, and his eyes were shut. Across his left eye ran a
scar, and his ears were pierced with small gold rings. His bushy tail draped
over his long legs, and across his cream-coloured chest lay a red electric Guitar.
Suddenly, in a burst of furry flames, he fell to the ground.
"Whu--Arrowtak? Not again..." Karnivekker
the white Lupe sighed as he stood up and stretched. A fire Lupe rolled in the
grass, laughing heartily. He had brilliant yellow eyes, and a strong frame.
"Aww Karniveker! It was funny!" choked
Arrowtak, very out of character. Karnivekker was usually the one to do such
things. But Karnivekker had recently married, and started a pack of his own;
thus more weary than usual.
"No- heh. I actually came to ask if I could
join your pack. I've been a tad more lonely since I left my old pack..."
"Yeah, sure, whatever," Karniveker
moaned. He picked up his guitar and slung it onto his back. He winced and opened
his bright neon green eyes to the midmorning light. "Er, wanna go see the
other pack members? Just over at the Endless Plains...c'mon." Karnivekker
"Yes! That would be great!"
Arrowtak said, then the two set out.
Four eyes peeked from the nearby bushes. One pair was light blue,
the other dark brown. Suddenly one creature spoke.
"Teehee...this'll be funny!" said the
creature with blue eyes.
As soon as the Lupine figures disappeared, a
Shoyruess' head popped up. She had a striped skin, and sky blue eyes.
"C'mon Kitai. They're gone now," she
"Heh...I can't wait to see the look on their
faces, Tylali!" KitaiMyou the cloud Krawk whispered excitedly. Her deep
brown eyes twinkled happily on her young face. The two hopped out from the shelter
of the bush, and shook brambles off of their legs. These creatures were no ordinary
pets, however they may have seemed. They, like their brother Arrowtak, were
Elemental Guardians. KitaiMyou, "Kitai" was the Guardian of Shock
Magic and controlled shock powers; Tylali the Guardian of Ice Magic, controlling
Ice magics. Arrowtak, of course, was the Guardian of Fire Magic, while Karni
was just clueless.
"OK, Kitai. Grab my legs and I'll fly us
over to their pack. I just can't wait!" Tylali screeched, and the two flew
off in the direction the Lupes had taken.
Three Lupes and a Chia sat in a circle, talking on the top of a large boulder.
"Ice-cream? You think ice-cream is
better than pizza? Boy, are you messed," a red Lupe commented. She
was wearing boxing gloves, and she smirked at the Split Chia.
"Well what's wrong with it? Huh? I bet stupid
Karnivekker would agree with you. You're a Lupe," taka223 commented.
"Don't talk about my Karni like that!"
growled a dainty pure white Lupess, Korsona.
"Let's end this now. We shouldn't be fighting
you know. Fighting is against my law. Neggs are the best food. So there,"
said a calm-voiced blue Lupess, Snowdrift_Pani, Karnivekker's sister. At that,
Karnivekker and Arrowtak appeared at the rock.
"Hey dudes. Umm...are you talkin' about
stuff I should know?" he muttered drowsily.
"No," Taka answered, then stuck her
tongue out. Karnivekker sat down in a bad-postured position.
"Arrowtak joined," Karniveker sighed.
He gestured towards Arrow.
Arrowtak smiled, but as soon as he did so, he and all the others jumped. A large
cloud of smoke rose from the ground, and two lizard-like figures emerged.
"Here, Lupey-Lupey-Lupeys!" Tylali
mocked, and with that fired a Snowball at the Lupes from her brand-new Snowball
Machine. She giggled happily as Karni yipped around madly.
"TO THE BAT-er...LUPE CAVE!" Karnivekker
howls, and runs down the boulder, the rest of the pack following him. They run
into a small hollow beneath the rock, it's walls covered in moss. They rushed
deep into the cavity, into a room covered in Chia pelt.
"Hey! Gross!" Taka shouted as she stepped
into the room.
"Shhhh! They'll find us!" Korsona yelped.
"Why don't we make peace with them?"
Snowdrift pleaded, only to be interrupted by Arrowtak's strong voice.
"If I know my sister, she doesn't know the
meaning of 'peace'," he growled. Above them, they heard the footsteps of
Tylali and KitaiMyou. Suddenly, they heard Karnivekker gasp.
"What is it, Karni?" the red boxing
Lupess, _SunBurst___ questioned.
Karnivekker only stared deep into the depths of the hole in front of him.
Cautiously, the small pack made their way down a steep tunnel. The walls were
ancient and musty, and smelled dank. Suddenly it opened up into a large chamber,
filled with strange objects. From potions to armour, weaponry to faeries and
codestones, the room was stuffed. The awe-struck Lupes stumbled into the room,
and peered about nervously.
"I'll be in the back guys, come get me if
you need me. I want to see if they have any books about Peace...it may help
us," Snowdrift said, and headed into the far back.
Above them they could hear their enemies entering
the cave. Not much time was left. Karnivekker wandered over to a shelf full
of small potion bottles of strangely dark gloomy colours. He picked up a spherical
bottle, and tapped on it lightly. It was light brown and had spots in it, and
it seemed to be a sort of power-potion.
"Hey Arrow! Look at this bottle. Do you
think it tastes good?" Karnivekkr yells to Arrowtak. Arrowtak, who was
admiring a Fire Sword just nodded, not looking at the potion Karnivekker was
"Bottoms up!" Karnivekker howls, then
without knowing it, gulps down the Mutant Kadoatie Morphing potion. He yelps
as the thick syrupy liquid slithers down his throat. His dirty white fur became
short and tan, covered in dark brown spots. His eyes turned yellow and dilated,
and his teeth grew sickly yellow and razor-sharp. His tail grew long and skinny,
covered in dark stripes. He howled as spines broke through his back, and he
shrunk. He had transformed into a Mutant Kadoatie.
"Ouch. Power-potions are hard to drink--ACK! I'M A MUTANT PETPET! NOOO!"
Karnivekker squealed in a squeaky Kadoatie meow. Arrowtak turned, and his jaw
slowly dropped. Korsona, watching Arrowtak, turns to see what took his attention
and howls miserably.
"MY MATE IS A MUTANT PETPET...CAT?!?"
she screams, holding her paws to her head, she feet a migraine coming on. Korsona
panicked, and fell backwards into a pile of Robot Paint. She tossed her head,
and looked down at her once dainty figure. She had become a bulky piece of Lupine
"I guess it...a....wasn't a Power-Potion,
huh?" Karnivekker squeaks. "...hehe..."
Suddenly the ceiling breaks through, and Tylali
and KitaiMyou stand smirking. "Pay back time..." Kitai said, as she
clapped her claws happily. The two girls cheered as they watched the horrified
Lupes cower together, and a Chia laughing at a Mutant Kadoatie. Tylali fires
a Poison snowball at _Sunburst___ the red Lupe, and frozen in fear and poisonous
snow, she falls down limp. Taka giggles, only to find herself 'eating snow'
as well. Arrowtak growled, but his 'innocent' little sister threw a potion at
him, and it hit him square in the forehead. It shattered, and he found himself
in the body of a Chia plushie. He was useless, a stuffed Neopet. He was no longer
Snowdrift gasped as she stepped out into the
scene. She hadn't found any books. Suddenly she froze as Tylali shat a Snowball
at her, and she fell to the ground. Korsona ran into the back, terrified at
her ugly appearance. Karni stood alone amongst the frozen pets and plushies.
He meowed heavily, and fell down, exhausted.
"Oh...my...gosh! Look at that
cute little innocent Kadoatie, Tylali! Let's take it home! It's sooo cute!"
KitaiMyou screeched as she saw Karnivekker. She placed her snowballs on the
ground and hurried over to the Kadoatie-Lupe. Kitai picked up Karnivekker, and
he meowed. "Can we keep him?"
Tylali's face softened, and she
nodded. Figuring that they had gotten enough fun, they flew off, Karnivekker
in their arms.
Months later the pack met atop the boulder.
"Don't worry, my sisters are taking perfectly
good care of Karnivekker!" Arrowtak said to the pack, she had all been
Meanwhile at Tylali and KitaiMyou's NeoHome...
"Ooh! Lookie! I dressed out Kadoatie up as
a Usuki, isn't he sooo ca-yoot?!? " Kitai said, holding a pink bow-tied
Mutant Kadoatie. Karnivekker sighed, and smiled. It wasn't so bad being pampered...he
liked it in fact!
