The Silence of the Stuck

So I did see the doc leading in a pitiful blue creature down here with me! I hate to break it to you, but no one really comes down this way, I don't think I've ever seen a single human since I got here.

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!

First Day of School

As the Mynci giggled and walked away, Claylan frowned and shook his head. It was going to be one of those days. The first day of school was always like this—he should have expected as much.

"The Silence of the Stuck" by thebusterbell
"I'm sorry boy, but at least here you'll have others to keep you company." Plewo the Gelert wilted at the sight of his owner shutting the pound door behind him, and quietly followed the yellow Techo that ushered him down the hall. Plewo was so distracted and despondent that he hardly noticed that they had been walking for quite a while, until finally the Techo shooed him into a cage at the end of the hall. As he took in his surroundings, he realized it was eerily silent for what he knew to be a crowded place. His cage was tucked into the corner, and he could only see a small patch of wall beyond the cage bars. The air smelled moldy, and his enclosure was cramped. Plewo lay silently for what seemed like days until suddenly a small voice spoke out, "pssst! I see you got unlucky too pal!" Plewo listened for the source of the voice, and figured the Neopet talking was just a few cages down. He didn't bother trying to respond however, when he had been a few years younger he had caught an illness that permanently took his voice. His owner had thankfully cured it quickly, but he had never been able to speak again after that. "Psst!" The voice quipped again, "you hear me buddy?!" Plewo stayed silent and tried not to let the other pet hear his sniffling, but the voice persisted, "okay, so you don't wanna talk? Fine, but at least make a sound so I know I'm not going crazy." Plewo sighed and tapped the bars once.

Return to Lynwood: Part Seven

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.
