Janet and Jane: The Case of the Vanished: Part One

It had been five years to the day since... It's a little hard for me to explain, really. Let me just say that a couple Neopets Jane and I were close to left us... Jane and I didn't like to talk about it. We didn't even like to think about it. Don't expect me to tell you more about what this is about.

"A Curse on Meridell" by _the_spardel_queen_
Aphridite was born for the throne, she was raised to be Queen. Yarce on the other hand, the second sister, would always be just a princess. She didn't have much interest in balls, fancy dresses or politics in the court anyways. Her true passion was gardening. While Aphridite was in her classes learning five different Neopian languages, performing in piano recitals and reading in her diplomatic relation lessons, Yarce was usually found outside in the the fields, digging up dirt to plant seeds. Her parents were horrified at her behavior, Yarce would show up to her own classes covered in dirt, with mud in her thick, blonde braids. She showed up to her own birthday ball in torn jeans and gardening gloves because she forgot the date. The townspeople and neighboring kingdoms all knew of the rebellious princess and constantly made a mockery of her. But she didn't care, there was something special about being outside with the breeze flowing through her hair and she felt like nothing could make her quite as happy as seeing a flower that she had planted, bloom. Her parents eventually understood, and knew that Yarce needed to find her own path in life. Many many years later, after Aphridite was crowned the Queen and their parents took off to keep up relations with other kingdoms around the world, Yarce began to feel troubled. Her small plot of land she was allotted would not grow anything.

A Color to Match
A day didn’t go by that I wasn’t grateful and overjoyed that I was not only brought into the world but that I was lucky to get an owner such as Rellexia, who gave everything she had to her family which motivated me to do the same. Yet still every morning I woke up, and every morning I stared at the mirror before going downstairs with the same feeling ached in my heart, the same thought popping into my head. I hate being a mutant!
