Patch's Money Tree Adventure
"I know!" Patch yells in excitement.
"What now?" Kaze, Patch's little brother, groans
and rolls his eyes.
"You know, we've been trying to get Neopoints
for months now, and we've only gotten, what... maybe at least two-hundred thousand?"
"Your point?" Kaze yawn, and sits up.
"Well, since I'm older, and smarter-"
"Oh, here we go." Kaze lies back down, ignoring
Patch, as he continues.
"-and bigger, and... HEY!" Patch growls.
"What?!" Kaze rolls on his back, hoping the floor
will scratch his itch.
"When they say that Gelerts and Kougras don't
get along… they mean it." Patch sighs.
"I'm listening." Kaze hums.
"Anyways, I want more money. I was thinking that
we go to the Money Tree," Patch announces.
Kaze quickly stands up. "No way! I'm not going
there; remember what Luna told us?"
"I know, I know... Her incident where she received
a broken leg, a black eye, a sprained pinky and the Neoflu from a sick Lupe
doesn't worry me. That was a while ago. I'm sure the Lupe is in the pound now,"
"That's not the point, Patch. I heard other things
too. Like about how crazy people can get for rare items." Kaze grabs Patch's
shoulders. "I don't feel like going to the Hospital tonight!"
"We're not going to the Hospital." Patch rolls
his eyes. "I got Zeke with me, he'll protect us!" Patch smiles and looks down
"Ruff!" the little Anubis squeaks.
Kaze freezes, feeling like a complete moron.
His jaw drops and he slaps his right paw against his cheek. "You must take me
as a fool. I may be a Kougra, but that doesn't mean I'm stupid. The pup is only
a few days old!"
"So what? Age doesn't matter!" Patch hugs Zeke
"The tiny little thing will get trampled!" Kaze
points out, acting frustrated.
"Will not! He can defend himself!" Patch pats
Zeke on his head.
"Ugh! The Anubis couldn't hurt a Mootix! And
I said COULDN'T not WOULDN'T!" Kaze screams.
"Well if you gave him a chance to prove himself."
"Chance nothing... You leave me out of this.
Your little... Anubis can protect you." Kaze lies back down. "I'm taking a catnap."
"Kougras…" Patch groans. "Come on, Zeke. You
can go with me to the Money Tree!" Patch runs out the door, with the Anubis
Patch and Zeke stop at the entrance of the Money
Tree. They look around. Not a Neopet or owner is at sight. They walk closer
into the area, and stop ten feet from the tree.
"Where is everyone?" Patch looks around.
A ghost drops about thirty different items from
above the tree into its thin branches. Patch grins.
"Oh, boy! I get everything! Come on, Zeke, help
me carry all this great stuff!" Patch starts to gallop the ten extra feet towards
the tree. "Oh, wow! Two-thousand Neopoints!" Patch starts to leap for the bag.
"WAAAAHH!" Patch screams, and bonks heads with
a Glowing Kau.
The Kau grabs the bag of Neopoints and runs towards
her owner. "Mommy! Look at what I got!"
"Ugh… that's okay." Patch stands up. "Ooo! A
piece of furniture!"
Patch runs towards the Zen couch, but, then an
Apple Chia and a Red Draik run towards it, zooming in front of Patch, leaving
him with a mouth full of dirt.
"Hey! I saw that first!" Patch yells.
"Mine!" the Apple Chia screams. She pushes the
"No! You brat! You got the Chia pop that turned
yourself into the green balloon!" the Draik snarls as he tugs on the armrest.
"I'm an Apple!" The Chia tugs back in anger.
"Hmm..." Patch looks around quickly and sees a
pack of Neoflakes Cake. "Food!"
Patch runs to it, but a Yellow Kacheek grabs
it and runs. He then sees a Bottle of Invisible Sand. He gets ready to run,
but stops, because it already disappeared. Two more ghosts drop about ten more
items each. Patch smiles and runs to a Neopets TCG Card.
"Wow!" He goes to pick it up, but a Blue Aisha
grabs it quickly. "HEY!"
"Hahahahaha!" The Blue Aisha giggles and leaps
into the bushes.
Patch looks around and sees Zeke playing tug-of-war
with a Striped Shoyru for a Faerie Pencil. He runs to them to help his Petpet,
but the Shoyru's owner helps her, and they walk away in pride. Patch picks up
Zeke, helping him to his feet.
"It's okay, Zeke." Patch smiles. "We'll get something."
"Arf!" Zeke barks.
Patch freezes. He watches as the ghost drops
a Cloud Paint Brush from the sky. His eyes become starry.
"Come on, Zeke!" Patch runs as fast as he can
and leaps into the air.
All of a sudden, a White Kougra, Red Kougra,
Fire Gelert, Yellow Pteri, Blue Zafara and Green Chomby all leap towards the
Paint Brush at the same time. Patch lands in between the Fire Gelert and Red
Kougra. He reaches as far as he can, and feels the smooth, wooden handle. Then,
about five Neopet owners leap on top of the pile, trying to get the Paint Brush,
along with two Pink Poogles, a Green Gelert, a Yellow Jetsam, and a Faerie Blumaroo.
They all tackle each other, and Patch gets squished tightly into the large pile.
"Eeeee!" Patch screams. "Someone pulled my tail!"
"Oww! Quit stepping on my face!" the Fire Gelert
screams and scratches the Red Kougra.
"That Paint Brush is MINE!" The Faerie Blumaroo
squeezes into the pile.
"I don't think so!" One of the Neopet owners
grabs the Blumaroo's wings and flings him out of the way.
"You're pulling my fur!" the Blue Zafara growls.
Patch squeezes his paw more into the pile, to
get a better grip on the Paint Brush's handle. He finally gets a good grip,
but then feels it get pulled away. He sits up and watches the Paint brush float
"Heeheeheeheehee!!!" An Invisible Neopet runs
away, giggling, with the Cloud Paint Brush.
"I had it too!" the White Kougra growls.
"Invisible Neopets have good advantages..." one
of the Pink Poogles groans.
Patch's bottom lip twitches. He begins to sob.
Fifteen minutes later….
Patch bursts through the door of the Neolodge.
His once perfect coat of red fur is now ruffled up and has a few bald spots
and burns. He has two black eyes, a sprained front paw, his tail has a bite
mark on it, he is semi-covered in sticky-snowball residue and his ears are drooped
over his face. Kaze looks over at Patch as he limps over to his bed. Zeke jumps
onto the sofa and curls up into a ball.
"So... How was it?" Kaze smirks, knowing he had
a horrible time.
Patch pauses and his left eye twitches. "Don't…"
"What happened?" Kaze asks.
"A Fire Gelert burned me because I tried get
a Bacon Omelette, a Christmas Kougra scratched my fur out when I tried reaching
for a Glamour Negg, I grabbed a Sticky Snowball, but an Acara was angry that
I got to it before her, so she grabbed it from me and threw it at me, a Snow
Aisha threw her arm at me because I looked at her..." Patch explains.
"Wow, dude, you got messed up." Kaze blinks.
"Oh, I'm not done yet. A Darigan Lupe punched
me in my left eye when I accidentally touched his tail, because a Healing Potion
XI was laying there, and disappeared, then he punched me in my right eye because
I apologized, and I was a HAIRS from getting a Cloud Paint Brush that was snatched
under my nose by an Invisible Neopet!" Patch takes a deep breath.
"Heh heh." Kaze chuckles. "So, did you get anything?"
Patch glares at Kaze. He pulls out ONE Neopoint,
and whips it at Kaze's chest. Kaze picks it up and looks at Patch.
"At least you got something." Kaze grins.
"Eh... Heh heh heh heh. Heh heh heh." Patch laughs
sarcastically. His eye twitches a few more times. He jumps into his bed, still
laughing. "Never... Never again."
Kaze laughs. "I told you so." He tosses the Neopoint
back to Patch. "So, Patch. Have any new ideas to get Neopoints?"
This is my VERY first story! I hoped you all liked it, and expect more soon!
