Starring: SkarIX, Puddlerluver, and their PetPets.
SkarIX had had a GREAT day. His owner, mkjagz, had made 10,000 NP!!!
Yes, 10,000! He was soo happy! Plus, ontop of that, he gave SkarIX a Warf
instead of that old Cobrall, and Puddlerluver a Greeble instead of a Spyder.
Ah, yes. It had been a great day. But now they were on their way home.
Puddlerluver smelled the fresh air. He also smelled something else...something
familar..ah ha! It was...it smelled like..no..but it was...a FAERIE! He
spotted the faerie just a few yards away, laying on a leaf. It was a light
faerie...Maybe, if he snuck up on it....almost there....He was about 10
Inches away from catching it...
A twig broke under his foot. He looked down at the broken twig, disgusted.
He looked back up, but the faerie was gone. Crud! Oh, well, the rest of
the day was better, at least. It was nearing nighttime and they were heading
to their house above mkjagz's store. The shiny, neat walls reflected the
sun's dim rays just ahead.
They had soon reached the house and had gone inside. The pets and their
owner went to separate rooms and SkarIX and Puddlerluver raced to their
bed and flopped down on it. Ziiiiip! Crack! Wha...? They were back on
the path to the store and the sun was up in the sky again!!!?? What had
happened??? Puddlerluver looked down at his Greeble, too confused to speak.
Finally, SkarIX broke the silence.
"What H-happened?" he managed to stutter.
"I don't know," Puddlerluver replied automatically.
No sooner had he gotten the words out of his mouth, then they heard a
Booom and a HUGE crash of thunder following it. The sky went black, dark
clouds hovered over them and there was darkness in all Neopia...
SkarIX's warf wimpered, "We better get back to the store. Mkjagz must
be worried," he stated.
Puddlerluver agreed and they set off. But, the more they walked, the
more tired they became, and Puddlerluver was sure they had at least walked
twice the distance.
"We better take a rest," said the Quiggle. His Rainbow coat no longer
sparkled and he looked tired and dirty rather than shiny and energetic.
They stopped to rest. About five minutes later they heard footsteps and
something splashing through a puddle. A figure emerged from the darkness...it
"Mkjagz!" yelled SkarIX, and indeed it was.
"Hey! I was looking for you two! Where have you been?" mkjagz asked.
After they talked, they decided to head toward the store again, and if
they couldn't find it, at least to find some type of shelter. Ten minutes
later, behind them was a scream. SkarIX and Puddlerluver whipped around.
Mkjagz was missing once again. This time, he might not return.
"Keep moving," said the Chia. "And stay together," he warned. They walked
for what seemed like hours and hours. They saw no shelter and were tiring
quickly. The pets took a well deserved rest.
"Grrrrr....." growled the Warf.
"What is it??" asked SkarIX.
The little dog-like creature took off into the night. A short period
of time later, they heard a Growwl and the yelp of a helpless puppy. It
was too late.
"We Can't Rest!" said Puddlerluver.
"We must keep moving!" the Chia agreed.
They hadn't even got up yet when a pair of red eyes appeared and the
pets heard a low growl. SkarIX did not need the "RUN!!!!" from puddlerluver
or the warning growl to be warned. They took off. The Greeble...didn't.
It was the third victim of the creature. Were they next? Another pair
of red eyes appeared in front of them and before they could reverse their
path, they were surrounded. The Creatures were closing in...they leapt!
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" yelled Puddlerluver
and SkarIX, sitting up in bed. Beware, if you are having a good day. You
might get a "Good Day-Gone Bad." And it might not be a dream.
