I watched in disgust as SilverEmerald, my Skeith, popped
another Plastic Butter Knife into his mouth. JadePaw stared in horror as he
bit down hard on the plastic. EmeraldBlitz watched in revulsion as he chewed
the plastic with his sharp dagger-like teeth. GoldenRhino stared in dismay as
he swallowed the sharp plastic pieces. SilverEmerald was just changed into a
Skeith by the Lab Ray, and seemed to be enjoying his...new found sense of appetite.
"SilverEmerald, why do you like that?" asked
EmeraldBlitz finally. I gave my Krawk 'the look' because I had told all three
of them to not comment on the eating of the Plastic Butter Knives. The truth
was, I really wanted to know too.
"It's great! It's like a thousand meals in one.
You can actually taste the past foods that this knife touched. This one for
instance," he said as he picked up on of the knives and shoved it into his mouth,
"was used to cut a Teal Juppie. Apparently, it was also used to spread part
of a Stick of Butter on something. Hey...it was also used to stir some Mint
"All of those things?" asked JadePaw.
"Yeah. People are always donating these to the
Money Tree. Nobody watches them either! This one tastes like it was touching
a Rotten Berry!" he exclaimed as he swallowed the knife and patted his belly.
"But Plastic Butter Knives are Battledome weapons!
Isn't that...gross?" asked EmeraldBlitz.
"Not at all, my stomach is designed to digest
anything at all. This one," he said as he picked another knife and shoved it
into his mouth. "Tastes like...Ixi blood! Yummy! Ixi blood is good, but nowhere
near as good as Chomby blood. Chomby blood is the best. Grundo blood is pretty
good, but too sour. JubJub blood is the worst! It tastes almost as bad as Korbat
blood which is too sweet. Now, Nimmo blood!"
"OK! You can stop now!" exclaimed GoldenRhino
as he got up off of the couch and headed to the bathroom.
"As long as you don't choke, I guess you're fine
eating them. But tomorrow at NeoSchool, I wouldn't recommend sharing the whole
blood story with your friends. I doubt they really want to hear how tangy Eyrie
blood is," I said as I left the room followed by EmeraldBlitz and JadePaw.
"But Eyrie blood isn't tangy, it's actually quite
bland!" he said as he shoved another Plastic Butter Knife in his mouth.
It was truly a great day at Neoschool for SilverEmerald. He hooked up with
his two closest pals, KrystalFox and Hot_Flicker. They hung out all day and
finally it was lunch. They headed to the cafeteria and sat down at a table.
"What do you have KrystalFox?" asked Hot_Flicker
as she opened her Sloth Lunchbox.
"Mmmmmm, Bargasaurus Steak burger! What about
you Hot_Flicker?" he asked.
"Pea and Lentil Soup. It's actually quite good.
What about you SilverEmerald?" asked Hot_Flicker. SilverEmerald opened his Warrior
Lupe Lunchbox. Inside were six Plastic Butter Knives.
"Ha, looks like TK packed you all knives and
no lunch!" exclaimed KrystalFox.
"No, I eat these. You don't have a problem with that?" asked SilverEmerald
as he picked one up and bit it. KrystalFox and Hot_Flicker exchanged funny looks.
"Mmmmm, Scorchio blood!" said SilverEmerald as
he finished off the Plastic Butter Knife. Hot_Flame (a Scorchio) looked like
she might be sick.
"We don't have a problem but--"
Suddenly the doors to the cafeteria burst open.
A Kyrii, a Mynci and a Grarrl burst in. They were all wearing Leather Jackets.
"Get out of the way," said the Mynci as he pushed
a Poogle off a chair. He and the other two sat down. The Kyrii was named Nick,
the Mynci was named Jonny and the Grarrl was named Cory. Nick was the leader
of their little gang. Jonny was the one who always seemed to do the fighting
and stuff while Nick laughed. Cory was the quiet one. SilverEmerald had never
even heard him speak!
"They're the one who have the problem," said
Nick suddenly looked at SilverEmerald take a
bite out of another Plastic Butter Knife. He motioned for Jonny and Cory to
follow him. They walked over to SilverEmerald's table.
"Hey StupidEmerald!" said Jonny. He and Nick
started laughing while Cory stood there silently.
"I bet that took you all night to make up, didn't
it?" said Hot_Flicker coming to SilverEmerald's defense. Cory started growling.
"Big deal. Hey SilverEmerald, nice lunch!" exclaimed
Nick. He held up the few Plastic Butter Knives that remained. Everybody in the
cafeteria started to laugh. You could tell because SilverEmerald was a red Skeith,
but he blushed big time. He ran out of the cafeteria.
I put ten Plastic Butter Knives in SilverEmerald's lunchbox. It was still a
little weird, but at least it was cheap! JadePaw's favourite food was Escargot,
GoldenRhino preferred Flaming Burnumups while EmeraldBlitz liked to eat the
Headless Horsefish which is served at the Golden Dubloon. This was definitely
a good change.
"TK... I don't want any Plastic Butter Knives,"
said SilverEmerald as he walked into the kitchen.
"Really? But you said the other day that you
loved them!" I exclaimed.
"It's just, some pets at Neoschool made fun of
me for eating them. Just give me a few NP and I'll buy lunch at school," he
"I will if you want, but you can't let others
walk all over you. They may think you're weird, but I think you're anyway you
want to be. Here's 100 NP. I hope you make the right choice," I said as I pulled
some Neopoints out of my pockets and handed them to him.
SilverEmerald walked down the cafeteria line. He was going to eat a nice, normal
lunch...something he didn't like.
"Hey StupidEmerald, any more yummy Plastic Butter
Knives today?" asked Nick as he, Jonny and Cory walked up. SilverEmerald got
angry. He was tired of being pushed around.
"Miss, could I have eight Plastic Butter Knives?"
asked SilverEmerald. The Peophin behind the counter looked puzzled, but in exchange
for some NP, she gave eight Plastic Butter Knives to him.
"What a loser!" cried Jonny. SilverEmerald shook
"You're wrong. You laugh at me because I'm different,
but I laugh at you because you're all the same. But are you? My lunch may be
different from yours, but you two lunches are different," said SilverEmerald.
He opened their lunchboxes. Jonny had a slice of Pizza, but Nick had a jelly
"But these are normal lunches, others have them
too. We have normal lunches," said Nick in their defense.
"Nope. Let's see what Cory has," said SilverEmerald.
He opened Cory's lunchbox and inside were two Toy Sail Boats. Jonny and Nick
looked up with shocked expressions.
"People are always sailing these on Mystery Island.
They salt in the water sinks into the wood. They taste salty and yummy," said
Cory as he took a bite out of one. SilverEmerald walked over to the table where
Hot_Flicker and KrystalFox were sitting. Cory also sat down too. Nick and Jonny
just stared with their jaws dropped. It looked like they were the odd ones out.
Note: I'd like to thank two of my real life friends, wattsy1213 and meow_mel44
for letting me use the names of two of their pets in the story, KrystalFox and
