Leave Room for the Impossible

Eliss hung the "closed" sign on the shop door, relieved the day was finally over. She was an assistant at the only furniture store in Tyrannia, and had been for as long as she could remember. It was boring, tedious work, but it allowed Ellis and her owner to decorate their Neohome for free, which she wasn't complaining about.

"Leave Room for the Impossible" by unfogging
Eliss hung the "closed" sign on the shop door, relieved the day was finally over. She was an assistant at the only furniture store in Tyrannia, and had been for as long as she could remember. It was boring, tedious work, but it allowed Ellis and her owner to decorate their Neohome for free, which she wasn't complaining about. She stepped outside the shop into the dry, unwelcoming Tyrannian landscape. Around her were the same bogs and rocks and mud she had seen every day for the last eighteen years. Although she'd never say it out loud, she was tired of all the same. Everybody around her seemed perfectly happy to stay in Tyrannia and live the same lives they'd lived forever. But not her. As she walked home, she passed over a river. She stopped, gazing at her reflection. Even her outer appearance didn't match what was going on outside. Eliss was a candy Aisha. Bright, shiny, and every color of the rainbow, she stuck out like a sore thumb. Her owner, Anna, told her she had chosen her color because, at the time, it was the newest color available, and she just knew Ellis would be "unlike any other Neopet out there." She wasn't far off. Ellis smiled at the thought of her owner, who had always been supportive of what she wanted to do. Her birthday was tomorrow, and she knew what she wanted to ask Anna for.
