|The Secret of the Kiko BandageAbhari had only a split-second to react, as he heard first a bump, then a THUD, then a sound like a Yooyuball being flattened. "Oof!"|
|Somewhere to BelongShe wasn't exactly like other Sandans, belonging to a Neopet who took care of her. She didn't have an owner, so she wandered around Neopia Central, hoping a kind, thoughtful Neopet would see her and keep her.|
|Return to Mystery IslandPirate captains did not sleep on the sand while the rest of the crew stocked the ship with Neocola and Twirly Fruit. However, Zovus did not feel like a pirate captain at all; back on his home island, he felt like a baby Jetsam again.|
|The Last BarishinIshanti looked at the vast, seemingly endless desert that lay ahead of her as she looked out of her window while getting ready for what she would be up against in a few hours. |
|Average Lilly"Lilly, it's time I took you on a big shopping spree in the NC Mall," Streamer, a cloud Xweetok and my favourite sister, told me matter-of-factly. "Not one of those small ones when you occasionally try on something -- I mean a BIG one!"|

|The Problem with Baby Pets|
