Employment

After running into a few Neopets and earning some angry shouts, the two friends skidded to a stop as they stared at the monstrous line of people in front of them. The Mynci whistled. “You’ll never get a ticket with this huge line, Lysander.”

The Mynci let out a soft groan as he collapsed in the snow. The last thing he heard before his consciousness went was the shuffling of huge feet.

The Struggle of Long Term Goals

He decided to be cautious and get a peek from the roof instead of simply answering the door. Yes, this was what he was doing for kicks these days, he thought with a sigh.

"The Monster on the Mountain" by ezel68
Like usual, a blizzard was sweeping across the peak of Terror Mountain. Pellets of snow and ice battered the frozen ground as powerful winds swirled heaps of snow through the air. Anyone with a lick of common sense would be huddled indoors during a storm like this. However, a lone Mynci was struggling his way through the terrible storm. He had been trying to reach the entrance to the Ice Caves, but lost his way when the storm arose. Unable to see two feet in front of him, ice was encrusted on his fur, and fluid that dripped from his nose and eyes froze instantly. His lips were chapped from the cold wind, and his breathing was shallow. “Where's that Snow Faerie when you need her most?” the Mynci's rattled brain thought, citing the helpful guardian of those lost on Terror Mountain. Aching, lethargic, and miserable, the Mynci pushed onward with no idea of where he was going. Winds threatened to shove him into the ground, and he practically waded through increasingly deep snow. He knew for sure that he would desperately have to find some shelter for the night. Either exhaustion, cold, or something else finally came to him, for the Mynci began to teeter on his feet. His vision was flickering with strange colors and his head was muddled with thick fog. The Mynci let out a soft groan as he collapsed in the snow. The last thing he heard before his consciousness went was the shuffling of huge feet. As the Mynci had struggled through the storm, unbeknownst to him, he was being watched. A creature, covered in thick white fur, nearly invisible in the blizzard, had been following the Mynci throughout his treacherous journey. The creature stood nearly eight feet in height, was built powerfully, and bore curved horns on its head. It traveled through the snow on two sturdy legs that ended in blue-colored paws like dinner plates. Yellow eyes with red irises, covered with thick lashes, observed the Mynci from a distance.
