Insane Dreams of a Wacky Chocolate Factory
Also by shadih_temporary
The stamps and marches of Ms. Wrinky's third-grade class
could be perceived throughout the lively streets of the Neopian Bazaar. Many
of the students were chattering excitedly with their friends, while others were
simply enjoying the nature and looking around their surroundings. Latiny, a
white Aisha, was in fact doing none of these things at the moment. Instead,
she was scribbling in her personal journal about the events that were occurring
at the moment.
21st Day of Running, Y6 1:14 pm NST
I can hardly contain any of the excitement that's
bursting in my stomach right now. This field trip just seems too good to be
true! I still can't believe Ms. Wrinky somehow managed to get us a tour of the
Chocolate Factory. I mean, there are so many reservations held there, it's a
wonder that she even got in the factory in the first place! But oh well, I'm
just enormously happy that we'll be the-EEE! Oh my gosh, we're here! We're finally
at the Chocolate Factory!
With a smile full of glee on her face, Latiny
quickly stuffed her journal in her backpack, and stared at her teacher who was
now standing at the entrance of the Chocolate Factory.
"Now, I want all of you to listen to me very
well," the red Kyrii began, "I'm expecting each and everyone one of you to be
on your best behavior here. This is a serious workplace, and I will not tolerate
any fooling around. Do I make myself clear?"
"Yes, Ms. Wrinky," the third-grade class replied
Their teacher nodded sternly, and then pushed
the glass door of the Chocolate Factory open. Immediately, the students began
weaving in through the building, streams of excitement and laughter escaping
from their mouths. Latiny pushed her way to the front of the line, making sure
that she had a clear view of whatever was in sight.
Unfortunately, what Latiny saw was not exactly
what she had been expecting. The class was scrunched up in a tight, small room.
A door stood directly in front of them, and right above the door was a framed
picture of the Chocolate Factory the first day it opened.
Latiny quickly pulled out her notebook and jotted
21st day of Running, Y6 1:27 pm NST
Well, we've entered the building. I see nothing
chocolate-related except for a picture of the chocolate factory stuck up on
the wall. I'm practically going CRAZY. I need to get to the best part of the
"Latiny," said Ms. Wrinky, glaring ominously
Latiny laughed nervously as she closed her notebook,
Ms. Wrinky walked to the front of the room, where
she was standing before all the students. The Neopets were chattering to one
another, not paying attention to anything.
"Silence!" Ms. Wrinky bellowed. The students
suddenly bolted their mouths shut, not wanting to get their overly stern teacher
"Apparently, they aren't ready for us," Ms. Wrinky
said, "but I assure you that---"
The door behind Ms. Wrinky suddenly creaked open.
The students cheered as they zipped into the heart of the chocolate factory,
practically running over Ms. Wrinky. Latiny giggled as she followed her peers.
She couldn't believe she was actually going inside the chocolate factory.
A Yellow Kiko with a brown goatee, a blue top
hat, and a black cane stood in the center of the factory. The students packed
together as they surrounded the Kiko. Latiny made her way through the crowd
of Neopets until she was in front of all the other students.
She flipped open her notebook and clicked on
21st day of Running, Y6 1:35 pm NST
I'm INSIDE the factory! I can't believe it! This
Kiko, obviously our tour guide, is probably going to be taking us through the
factory. Oh, I really hope we get to taste a lot of chocolate here. Oh my gosh,
he's going to start speaking!
"Enjoy," the Kiko said. He bowed down, and held
out his arm.
The students all carried surprised expressions
on their faces. They glanced at one another, and after a few seconds, started
cheering madly. One by one, the class began running and jumping around the machines,
staring at them in absolute amazement. Heavy amounts of grey smoke piped up
from long tubes, and others created odd honking noises. On each of the machines
was a little yellow marking that read, 'Virtupets'.
In general, the factory was simply breathtaking.
The class witnessed incredible chocolates that were being created, some that
they had thought would be impossible to make! Latiny continued to scribble down
her thoughts in her journal, making sure to add every single detail that she
thought was important.
At last, after four complete hours of visiting
and touring the factory, the class was ready to head back home. Each student
felt exhausted, except for Latiny, who thought that she still hadn't seen everything
that there was to be seen. Feeling a little bit a fussy at the time, Latiny
decided to explore the rest of the factory while her classmates went to go get
their jackets and backpacks.
"We've only been here for four hours," Latiny
said to herself, "that's nowhere near enough time to see, understand, and appreciate
all the exquisite chocolates that lay scattered throughout this factory."
Latiny walked around the whole entire factory,
stopping after every couple steps to record the types of chocolate she encountered
in her notebook. She even added a couple illustrations.
Latiny turned to head back to the rest of her
class when she stopped to look at a machine producing chocolate Dr. Sloth models.
"Ooh…" Latiny stared at the chocolates in awe,
Meanwhile, the rest of Latiny's class remained
at the front of the factory. The pets had each picked up all of their necessary
supplies, and Ms. Wrinky was about to do a head-count.
"Let's see…" the red Kyrii began, "oh, I don't
really need to count heads. I know you're all here, right?"
The students chattered to one another.
"RIGHT?!" Ms. Wrinky bellowed.
The students went dead silent and nodded their
"Take a moment to look around at your peers,"
Ms. Wrinky ordered, "nobody's missing, am I correct?"
The students shrugged.
"Well then," Ms. Wrinky said, "let's head back
And at that, Ms. Wrinky marched out of the Chocolate
Factory, her students miserably following her, dragging their feet along the
tiled floor of the factory.
It wasn't until about fifteen minutes afterwards
that Latiny showed up at the front of the factory. She looked around and noticed
that all of her classmates' jackets, backpacks, lunchboxes, and all other related
supplies were missing. Latiny looked around the area, and soon spotted the Yellow
Kiko she had seen earlier.
"Um, excuse me…?" Latiny began to speak to the
The Kiko was standing with his back to Latiny.
He didn't bother to turn around and look at Latiny; he simply stood there facing
away from her and smirked. "Ah… the Chocolate Factory. Nobody ever goes in…
nobody ever comes out…"
Latiny stared at the Kiko in confusion. The Kiko
laughed maniacally as he exited the front of the factory and walked behind a
"Wait!" Latiny cried.
She rushed towards the machine the Kiko walked
behind, but only to find a couple boxes full of melted chocolate. Latiny turned
around and made her way to the door that led into the "chocolate-less" room.
"It's locked…" Latiny whispered.
Inside Latiny's mind, the she only thing that
was running through it was fear and panic. The White Aisha began frantically
running around the factory, calling for a desperate need of help. Why had that
maniacal Kiko locked her in the factory? Why had her class left her behind?
These questions and more were swirling through Latiny's head. Unfortunately,
Latiny didn't take the time to notice a large amount of boxes, in the far end
of the factory, begin to collapse. Heavy amounts of dark chocolate began to
trickle out, but for some reason, the chocolate seemed mushier then usual. It
seemed as if…the chocolate was melting!
The delicious concoction began traveling across
the floors of the factory, its sweet scent growing stronger and stronger as
time swiftly flew by.
"HELP!" Latiny continued to cry as the other
end of the factory, tears now forming in her eyes.
Suddenly, Latiny started to smell something.
Something to that smelled awfully good. In fact, it smelled so good her mouth
immediately began to release a mass of sticky saliva!
"Oh, what is that smell?" whispered Latiny. She
started pacing across the halls of the factory, her eyes seeming rather zombie-like.
Latiny felt like she wanted to faint with ever
step she took. The mysterious smell was simply too marvelous to handle.
All of a sudden, an uncanny rumbling began to
shake the factory. Latiny's feet begin sliding across the flooring, and in no
time, Latiny's whole body was flown to the ground.
Melted chocolate began to fill the part of the
factory Latiny stood in. She was so shocked that she couldn't budge an inch.
The chocolate crashed against the walls of the factory as it formed magnificent
waves that roared with pride.
Latiny quickly grabbed hold of a pipe that suddenly
jutted out of the wall when the chocolate filled the factory. The chocolate
goo was so strong; Latiny was almost taken by the current.
Suddenly, Latiny's notebook slipped out of her
hands. It floated away with the chocolate, its stained pages simply staring
"No!" cried the white Aisha as she began to lunge
And at that, a huge machine that stood only few
feet in front of her exploded loudly and greatly, sending liquid chocolate everywhere.
The notebook floated out of sight.
"MY NOTEBOOK! NOOOO!!" Latiny yelled,
grabbing hold of the pipe again.
The notebook was not just full of selections
about this particular fieldtrip. Latiny has had that notebook since pre-kindergarten.
It held all of her memories from school. Her first entry ever was still fresh
in her mind:
my mom got me this really cool notebook! guess
what notebook it is! you!! yeah well today is my first day of school and im
really scared well im inside the school now i gotta go meat my teacher bye!!
The fact that she had written 'Dear dairy' instead
of 'Dear diary' still made Latiny laugh. But she didn't have time to think about
that right at the moment. Latiny's most prized possession had been swept away
by the strong current of a river of chocolate.
Without even having a single worry about her
safety, Latiny released her grasp from the pipe, and was immediately pushed
underneath the current of chocolate. Latiny instantly began to panic. She swam
furiously, trying to reach the top for air. She couldn't open her eyes, for
the chocolate would most likely blind her. At that moment, she could only trust
All of a sudden, Latiny felt her body being slammed
against a wall. A sharp stab of pain cut through her side. Latiny opened her
mouth, as if to yelp because of the pain. Instead, chocolate entered it and
began choking her.
Oh my gosh, this is it… Latiny thought,
moving frantically around. This is the end.
Then, the strangest thing occurred. The faint
image of the maniacal Kiko appeared in Latiny's eyes. He was laughing wickedly
at her, and then, after a slight pause, snapped his fingers like that.
"Latiny! Pay attention!"
Latiny suddenly opened her eyes, releasing sharp
breaths. Her eyes frantically studied the view presently in front of her, and
she gasped. She was standing in the Chocolate Factory, alongside her classmates.
Ms. Wrinky was glaring at her, obviously a sign that she wanted Latiny to start
The white Aisha then felt the familiar feeling
of her journal lying in her hand. Latiny closed her eyes at that moment, and
released a sigh of deep relief. Nothing bad had happen. She had been simply
The class began shuffling to the right, examining
a machine that was making a 'Seven Headed Bearog' chocolate. Latiny wasn't particularly
paying attention. Instead, she stared at the front of the journal, and started
flipping through the pages.
She grinned as she read what she had written
so long ago. Memories flooded her mind; happy memories, sorrowful memories;
But then, something appeared, causing a memory
to flash in Latiny's mind. This was not a memory she wanted to remember.
Dark, yet scrumptious-looking as ever, was melted
chocolate smudged on the paper. The liquid spilled to the ground, and Latiny
immediately dropped her journal. She stared in disbelief at the journal, her
eyes wide as saucers. Then, that Kiko, that insane Kiko, slowly walked past
her and winked, carrying a smile that was full of maniacal glee…
