As a shy blue Shoyru walked into the battle magic shop with a load of
Neopoints, the shopkeeper looked up at her. She knew what her owner, Baloyarn(a.k.a.
Amanda) had sent her for. "Greetings," coughed the shopkeeper. The Shoyru
smiled as she made her way toward the back of the shop. She grabbed a
basic lightning beam and took it to the front of the shop.
"I won't take less than 114 Neopoints for it," he said hoarsely.
"How about a hundred and eleven," the Shoyru coaxed.
"All right, I accept."
"And here's our discount card," the Shoyru added as she pushed the Neopoints
and the package across the desk.
"Here's your change of 90 Neopoints. Have a nice day." The shopkeeper
handed the Shoyru a small bag of Neopoints and the card and she was off.
As she exited the shop, she bumped into a kind looking Kacheek. Her cheerful
appearance was quite appreciated. Neopoints spilled all over the floor.
"Oh dear, I sure am sorry about that," replied the Shoyru as she gathered
up the spilled Neopoints.
"Not a problem," the Kacheek replied. This particular Kacheek was blue
just like the Shoyru. The Kacheek recounted all the Neopoints and replied,
"Dang, I lost 90 Neopoints....Oh well..."
"I can give you 90 Neopoints."
"Really, would you?" the Kacheek stammered as the Shoyru shoved the
bag of 90 Neopoints into the Kacheek's hands.
"Bye!" the blue Shoyru shouted over her shoulder.
She made her way across town and found the 90 Neopoints the Kacheek had
lost. She picked them up, thinking of it as even. The Shoyru crossed the
street and rushed into the cafe. She ordered a green apple, which happened
to be her favourite. She devoured the apple and she was on her way. As
she began home, a shout stopped her. She grabbed the 80 remaining Neopoints
and turned to face another Shoyru, only this one was red. Behind him was
a green Chia and a red Lupe. She stared at them.
"Yes?" she asked kindly.
"We have a bone to pick with you. You stole some Neopoints from us,"
the red Shoyru spoke.
"You must be mistaken. I've done no such thing and with your permission,
I'll be on my way," she replied. But before she could continue, the Lupe
stepped in front of her. "I'm warning you now, let me go home so I can
return my extra Neopoints to my owner." she argued. But the Lupe didn't
budge. The path was deserted, and there was nothing the Shoyru could do.
"I don't want to fight, I just want to go home!" she attempted. But it
was no use.
"One of two options. You can give us that sack of Neopoints or have a
2 on 2 fight with us," the Chia shouted angrily.
Oh dear, she thought. This Shoyru was Katrycia. She was level
2 with no special abilities and nothing but a bolt of lightning to protect
her. She was fast and quite intelligent. "I accept your fight," she sighed.
The red Shoyru stepped up. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw the
blue Kacheek dashing toward her. Too late though.
"Black frost cannon!" he shouted as a black beam sped toward her. Her
speed was too great to get hit though. She dodged the cannon with effortless
ease. Since she could think of nothing else, she countered him with 2
great flaps of her wings. He simply shook his head and landed on the ground.
The Lupe stepped into the ring.
After nearly biting her elegant tail, she did a 360 and with all her
might, she called, "Basic lightning beam!" The Lupe was hit and shot up
in the air. With a flick of her tail, he fainted. Katrycia landed as the
Kacheek neared her.
The red Shoyru was back with extra strength. "Lightning beam!" A large
beam headed straight toward her. She flapped her wings, but the lightning
beam hit her full force, sending her toppling onto the ground. She fell
painfully. The Kacheek got in front of her, arms wide spread, ready to
face the other Shoyru.
"Leave my friend alone! She stole no Neopoints whatsoever." The Shoyru
"Don't get involved," I warned. She didn't move.
"Red frost cannon!" the Shoyru shouted as a large beam shot toward her.
"NO!" shrieked Katrycia. The beam hit the Kacheek with full force.
When the dust cleared, the Kacheek was gone. A tear fell from Katrycia's
cheek. But the Kacheek was not gone. She landed smiling. The red Shoyru
"Blue frost cannon!" the Kacheek shouted. It hit the red Shoyru but didn't
knock it down.
"Ultra Bubble Beam!" she shouted with fury as the line of bubbles hit
the red Shoyru full force. She then leapt into the air and with much splendor,
she turned around three times, chucked a wet snowball up into the air
and smacked it with all the force she had. It hit the Shoyru on the head.
The Chia, the Lupe, and the Shoyru ran off shouting. The Kacheek turned
to face Katrycia.
"Are you okay?" she asked.
"Yeah, but my owner's not. She's probably worried sick. I need to go
home." Katrycia dusted herself off and the Kacheek followed her.
"I know what you mean. My name's Mysteey. What's yours?"
"I'm Katrycia. Pleased to meet you," Katrycia replied as they neared
their owner's house. Both NeoPets knocked on the door and Amanda opened
