"Why do I have to go to the 'Secret Lab' with you and rayneboery
today?" I complained to my owner, squieshie.
"Relax, Taitl. It'll only take a few minutes,
then we can come back home," replied squieshie. She was getting ready to go
get my sister, rayneboery zapped.
"The Lab ray is dumb. You can only get zapped
once a day, and sometimes nothing even happens. I think you wasted 120,000 Neopoints
"But-" squieshie started, but I cut her off.
"And why is it even called the 'SECRET' Lab
Ray?! Almost everybody in Neopia knows of it. It should have a better name."
"Maybe I'll just leave you and Waffle-Ducky
here to play," my owner suggested, pointing to the baby Gelert. She smiled evily
"NO! She'll do her karate moves on me. Every
time you leave my with her, I get beaten up! I'm coming with you!" I hid behind
"That's better. Now lets go. Xraie has probably
been waiting forever down there." squieshie opened the door, and we all piled
out of the house. We were supposed to meet Xraie, my sister (who is a purple
Draik) at the secret lab, because she was out doing some shopping near the entrance
to the secret lab.
"I wonder what it will do today," rayneboery,
the pink Kacheek asked, thoughtfully, as we were running down Soup Alley.
"HA! Probably something horrible. Yesterday
you went down to level one, and you were already at level one!" I told
her, flashing an evil grin towards her.
She rolled her eyes.
When we got to the entrance to the secret lab,
sure enough, Xraie was standing there with a bag of groceries in her hands.
"What took yo guys so long?" she questioned,
handing the groceries over to squieshie.
"We had a little stubbornness that kept us a
while." She coughed, "Taitl."
I grinned. "Lets just get this over with, okay?"
I opened the door leading to the gigantic line of pets ready to use the Lab
"There are a lot of pets ready to use the Lab
Ray," rayneboery said, getting her place in line.
"We'll be waiting right here," squieshie assured
her, sitting down on a bench.
"Okay. I'll be back soon... hopefully." rayneboery
moved up one place in the line, then another, then another, and soon a whole
sea of pets got in line behind her, and we lost track of the little pink Kacheek.
"This is getting boring," I said, minutes later.
"And plus, you said it would only be a few minutes until she got zapped,
then we could all go home and live the rest of our lives by not sitting here
and being bored."
"She'll be done in a few minutes! AAH!" squieshie
"Fine, fine. Whatever you say." I turned my
back to my owner, and she turned her back to mine.
Ten minutes later, rayneboery still hadn't come.
"I'm getting impatient," I said. "And
bored. I'm bored! Are you listening? I'm Bored!"
Squieshie didn't say anything. All I saw was
a smile she was trying to hide.
"When the heck is she gonna come back
out?" I questioned, now getting really annoyed.
"Hi, guys," said a voice. It sounded like rayneboery's
voice, but I didn't see her anywhere.
"W-What?" squieshie stammered. "Rayneboery?
Where are you?"
"Uh... right here," A light pink Aisha replied
with extremely long ear stalks, and white swirls on her body. Her ears,
legs, and tail all ended with a streak of silver.
"Rayneboery?!" asked Xraie, shocked.
"Is that you?" questioned Waffle-Ducky.
"Whoa!" squieshie said. "You sure changed! What
"Well," rayneboery started, swinging her extremely
long ear stalks around. "When I got to the front of the line, I found a stone
on the ground. It had the exact same markings as my coat, but it had little
Aisha ears on top of it. It was kind of weird. Then when I went to get zapped,
I turned into this, and the crazy scientist dude said that as long as this stone
was my very own, I would remain in this shape and color forever, and the lab
ray couldn't change me into anything different." The Aisha held out the stone.
It looked just how she described it.
"That's weird. Well, if you like how you are
right now, I suggest you keep the stone!" squieshie said, cheerfully.
"Don't worry- I will," rayneboery replied, grinning,
And so, just that morning, she want from being
a simple Pink Kacheek to a very special Aisha with very special markings.
