Sn_rpg_guild grabbed a cupboard and yanked it open, revealing
a bottled Water Faerie. Another cupboard contained a bottled Earth Faerie.
She tugged open the third cupboard to reveal... something none of them
had ever seen before.
"What is that?" asked Dove, puzzled.
"A new type of Faerie," Balthazar replied. "As near as
I can make out. She isn't too nice-I wouldn't release her if I were you."
He reached over the table and grabbed sn_rpg_guild's arm, yanking her
onto the tabletop.
What do I do? wondered a panicking Dove. She turned to
the Spacebattledome items that Seiun had given Meian and her. The Dream
Orb-what did it do again? She grabbed it and held it up, praying for the
purplish globe to work.
With a tremendous yawn sn_rpg_guild fell limp. Balthazar's
eyes widened in shock, then fell closed as he too succumbed to the Dream
"Good job, Dove," said Meian from inside the bottle.
"Can you get me out of here?" Dove lifted the bottle from the table and
tried to pry the cork out. It wouldn't budge.
"What now?" wailed Dove.
"The Basher," replied Meian. Dove grabbed the Spacebattledome
item and aimed it at Meian's bottle. "Careful..." CRASH! The bottle shattered
and the Faerie was free.
"Now let's free that Light Faerie," said Meian, gesturing
to the third cabinet. "Light Faeries are usually powerful. With any luck
she'll help us." Dove nodded and turned, careful to get her huge wings
out of the way before firing at the third bottle. CRASH!
"Hahaha...I'm free at last..."
"Um...excuse me, Miss Light Faerie? We're wondering if
you could help us..." began Meian.
The explosion faded away to reveal a giant...Light Faerie?
While smaller than most humans she was huge for a Faerie, but instead
of wearing the normal gold dress of a Light Faerie she wore a gown of
gold fading to brown, and her outfit top was styled very similarly to
Seiun's. "What are you? asked Dove in a small voice.
"Funny you should ask. I'm not 100% sure myself," the
strange Faerie cackled. "While I might appear to be a Light Faerie, as
I once was, I am now also a Fire Faerie...and a Space Faerie!"
"Which one are you?" asked Meian, puzzled.
"All three," she sneered. "My name is Naiem, and though
I was once a Light Faerie hundred of years ago, I am now something altogether
better. I am the Uber-Space Faerie!"
"She's gone," pointed out Meian. "Seiun told us."
"It's the Orb!" cried Meian, looking at one of them.
"Indeed. When I heard that this woman" she indicated
sn_rpg_guild "was going to get The Orb of the Fire Faerie by accident,
I intercepted the delivery and dropped the woman off here. She got a nasty
bump on the head, I can tell you-but then Balthazar found her. That was
after he'd battled me, of course, and just barely won. He caught me off
guard, you see." As Meian and Dove tried to digest this tale, Naiem held
up the other object. "This was a little harder to get."
"I can guess," snapped Meian. "You had to battle the
Uber-Space Faerie for it. That's the Locket of the Space Faerie!" And
it was. The locket was almost-black navy blue and heart-shaped, with tiny
starlike diamonds set all around the edge, in a star shape on the center,
and on the tiny wings at the sides. It glittered like a star and was as
dark as space. "And you did what you had to do for it!"
"I didn't harm her, little dark Faerie I only removed
"She passed a week later."
"Good riddance. Why don't you seem happy about this?
I am strong enough to defeat the Queen! I could rule Neopia!"
"And I don't want you to!" Meian cried. Dove nodded her
agreement and quickly put on the Armor that Seiun had given her.
"But you're a dark Faerie! Why wouldn't you love a seat
"AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!" shouted Meian, so loud that
Balthazar and sn_rpg_guild began to stir. "SO WHAT? BEING A DARK FAERIE
DOESN'T MEAN THAT I AM EVIL, OR LUST FOR POWER, OR ANYTHING! WHY DOESN'T
ANYONE UNDERSTAND THAT?" She rose into the air and flew angrily at Naiem,
but the giant Faerie simply snatched her out of the air.
"Get off of her!" cried Dove, launching herself at Naiem,
but the strangely twisted Faerie knocked her away.
"Dove!" called Meian from Naiem's hand. "I'm going to
give you some abilities. Hold still!" She held out her hands and streams
of black and purple energy shot from them to the Faerie Zafara. "Use 'Shroud'!"
"But I'm only level 1!" Despite that, Dove tried and
found herself invisible! Using 'Nighttime' she darkened Balthazar's room,
and with 'Night Vision' she could see through the blackness. Dove focused
on Naiem and began to use 'Drain Life' to remove the twisted Faerie's
life energy. Naiem shuddered and dropped Meian.
"Good work," said Meian, jumping onto Dove's back and
grabbing the Basher.
"Take me up." Dove flapped her large wings and raised herself to Naiem's
face level. Meian aimed...
Naiem shrunk to the size of a normal Faerie, then disintegrated
into powder, leaving the Orb of the Fire Faerie and the Locket of the
Space Faerie. Dove collapsed, exhausted from using abilities that she
should not have been able to handle.
"We did it, Dove," said Meian happily. "We got the Orb
back-and the Locket too. Now let's see if we can get them back to Neopia
To be continued...
