A Royal Quest: Part Two
"Hey, look," said Fighter. "I see the faeries landing. They
are early; we won't be under Faerieland for about twenty more minutes.... Those
aren't faeries there; oh my, I don't know what they are." Fighter suddenly stood
up, rocking the boat rapidly. He fought and tried his best to ward off the weird
snake-flying beasts but couldn't. They only got a minor scratch on the wing. There
were five, a beautiful forest green, two blues, a red, and an orange one who seemed
to be the leader. They swooped down and picked up Cam and Fighter.
"Where in Neopia are you taking us?" Cam yelled.
"SHUT UP, you filthy human!" replied the orange
"Hey, you watch your mouth when you talk to him!"
Cam said, "Well, hey, Fighter, at least we will
make it to Faerieland. Look, the cloud is right up there above us."
Cam looked at Fighter with a sign of relief.
Fighter looked back with a sign of mischief.
"Where are we going?" shouted Fighter.
"To the queen of evil," replied the orange reptile.
"She is the wicked witch of Faerieland and goes by the name of Jhudora."
The orange reptile seemed to be very proud to
say that. It was as if she was the mother of him and the rest of the gang. The
flight took several minutes. The snake-like creatures had a little difficulty
getting Fighter up there, so he was taken up a little slower and stayed far
behind the rest of the group. They approached the castle. It looked really nice
and had stone walls and purple tiles on the roof of the towers. There was a
big lime green door in the center and it seemed as if the castle lightly hovered
on a green and purple cloud. The castle was simple looking in structure but
seemed very big in size. It looked at least one hundred years old. Some bricks
were chipped and worn, and even a brick was missing from its spot as if someone
removed it. The door began to fall down slowly as it made a loud humming sound.
The door opened and right in the front stood Jhudora.
"Welcome all you little servants, ooh and I see
we have some guests. Well, bring them inside," she said and walked away into
"Come on, get a move on, you walkers," said the
green snake-like thing.
"What on Neopia are you?" shouted Fighter.
"We are Hissies; we come from the unknown forests
of Neopia," said all of them together in unison.
"Why are we here?" Fighter shouted.
"You have little Chippy to thank for that. He
tipped the queen off that you were looking for the queen to buy a very valuable
item. We just couldn't let that happen, now could we?"
"Why couldn't you let that happen?" Fighter shouted
"I somehow knew you would become too powerful
and would throw me out of power," she replied. The orange Hissi flew and lay
next to Jhudora on a little tiny purple cushion in a woven basket. It reminded
Cam of a cat bed.
"How did you know what we were going there for?"
"I followed you down to the beach. I was hiding
and listened to this little human child talk and I heard some clues about this
item," hissed the Hissi. "To me it seemed as if he was going to change your
look a bit, maybe even turn you royal. So we found a human and sent her to the
castle and she came back and told us the items. There was one item I caught
a hold of, the royal paintbrush. I told Jhudora and we just could not have another
king. So we had to stop you and, ha, it seems we did," said the menacing hissi.
"But we won't be stopped for long," said Fighter
as he broke away from the guard's hold and attacked the Hissi, stomping it to
the floor and sending Jhudora into a panic.
"STOP IT NOW! " shouted Jhudora with all her
might. She pointed out at Cam. "Stop or he will suffer! I'll put a curse on
him that will put him forever in a body lock and he will be glued to the ground."
She sat back down. Fighter ceased his movement
and sighed. What could he do to help his new owner and friend and also save
himself? How was he going to get out of this?
A bright pinkish purple glittery light smacked
Jhudora right out of her chair. All the Hissies were shocked. Who was that?
They looked out the window and saw nothing. They looked at the door and still
nothing. They looked up at the wooden roof of the castle, and there, hovering
about 75 feet above them, was little old Fyora and her mighty staff.
"Stop right there Jhudora. You're cornered. Call
off your hideous pets; I have something for these two right here," said Fyora
in all her beauty.
At that moment she swooped down and grabbed Cam
in one hand and Fighter in the other. It was amazing how such a skinny and small
faerie could lift the two of them; it was like magic. She shot a blast of magic
and the door flew open and out she, Cam, and Fighter went up, and up, and up
until Fighter swore he saw the space faerie in the sky with a little gold envelope.
"Hey don't you want one of those, Cam?" he said
with a little snicker.
"Nope, already got one," Cam replied.
They all of a sudden landed in midair.
How is this possible? Fighter thought.
He looked over to Cam, who had his jaw dropped down to the bottom of the Lost
"We… we...we're at the Hidden Tower. Wow, it's
awesome up here," he said with amazement.
"Should we go inside?" said the queen.
They both shook their heads yes. They walked
in and tons and tons of items where sitting on little tables with tags reading
4mill and 6mill and 1,560,000 neopoints. It was breath-taking. Cam walked through
and looked at all the stuff for a good fifteen minutes.
"Well, I guess we should leave. Are you ready
to go, Fighter?" Cam said with a sigh.
"Yeah I am," Fighter replied in the same tone
"Wait, don't you want to buy something?" asked
"We can't afford any of this," Cam replied.
"Oh yes you can. A friend of yours stopped by
and put in the rest of the points for you. He said you couldn't wait and wanted
so badly to get it he just had to help. He said his name was John," she said
in a calm tone.
"But what about the other points that I have
been saving up for months?" Cam asked with a smile on his face.
"They're right here in my hand, all you need
to do is tell me the item you want and you got it."
At that moment Cam ran off and pointed to the
royal paintbrush. It had its own pillow and table. There were only about five
or six. He picked one up and brought it over to Fyora.
"It's yours then. Now paint him and let's go
already," she said in an eager voice.
Cam splattered the brush all over Fighter. He
began to sparkle and shine. His old raggy blue fur started to turn tan and clothes
appeared. A long, beautiful mane appeared around his face and a crown popped
out of the sky and landed on his head. After about thirty seconds he was done
and the brush just poofed away, gone after its job was complete.
Six weeks later Fighter had gotten much stronger
and even got to give his aid in the war for Maraqua. He created the royal court,
a group of other royal pets; each person gave help to the needy and poor in
their own way. Some gave paintbrushes; others gave toys, food, furniture and
other things. He had much fun and got to know about his new owner and soon he
had a little tiny brother a baby Ruki called Tiny. Then he got another brother
later on in the month who was a king of the Werelupes. His owner wound up adopting
a Hissi. It was blue and turned out to be really sweet. David, his second owner,
got a new pet it was a pink Kougra. Everyone lived happily ever after.
Or did they?
"Why won't this stupid bed work?" said Sotoe
the pink Kougra as he kicked it.
"There seems to be a broken toy jammed under
it," said David.
David pulled the toy out and SWOOSH the bed spun
in circles at a very high speed. Sotoe hit the wall and slid down on to the
"I am going to get who ever did this if it is
the last thing I ever do!"
