Hello! My name is soprano, and today I'd like to share some of my most beloved moments with you. It all started when I was created, when I first opened my eyes and gazed into a bright, blinding light that was pointed toward my face like an intense sunshine flaring into my gears and circuits. A few moments later, once I was aware enough to analyze the world around me, I recall noticing that I was in a cozy room -- neither too bright nor too dark, with a metal desk and a few lights scattered all across the ceiling. I didn't see anyone else there like me; the room was empty, and so I was quite sad and lonely. A few moments later, though, I saw a green Mynci entering the room and coming right at me.
"Hello, little fella!" he said with a smile. "My name is Tangor! I made you from a pile of gears and scrap metal! You need to rest a bit, so your circuits can adapt to your new world."
After this, he pressed some of the keys on my central disk and I blacked out. When I woke up, everything was dark around me; I could feel that I was inside something soft, and that I was moving.
After a while I heard Tangor's voice in the background: "Hey! Come back here with that Ada! Someone, catch those thieves!" I then heard some panting, from what sounded like two Neopets running frantically (I didn't realize it at the time, but i was being kidnapped!). It took a while before the movement stopped and I'd been put on the ground, inside a bag, while the two Neopets were panting like Spardels that had just ran a marathon...
After the panting, one of the Neopets whispered to the other: "Man, was that some fast running! I've never run so fast in my entire life!
"What do you think that thing is worth?" the other asked.
"I don't know, but it had better be valuable," the first one replied. "I didn't rob that silly old Tangor for nothing!
"We'd better sell this fast, before we get busted!"
"Yeah, I guess you're right. Let's go -- we still have a long way to go before we reach Neopia Central!
Soon thereafter, they started walking again...
While they were walking, I was in the bag, still hoping that someone would free me from that leather cage. After about three hours of being in the bag I was starting to get really bored, but for some reason the two Neopets took me out of the bag, and the second I went outside I marveled at the sheer quantity of Neopets and Petpets that I saw around me -- all these new sounds, these new beings... I was desperately trying to take note of each and every detail of my surroundings when one of the kidnappers (I could now identify him as a red Draik) said to a shopper:
"How much for this piece of metal?"
"Whoa!" the shopper responded, quite surprised. "That robot you've got there -- it's an Ada! I'll pay you 5,000 NP for it!
"Sweet!" the other kidnapper, a blue Kougra, replied. "I never thought it would sell for that much..."
Suddenly, a mischievous Neopet wearing black glasses came by and quickly handcuffed the blue Kougra, saying:
"You, you're the one that stole the Petpet from Tangor's Workshop! You'll pay dearly for it!"
At that moment, the red Draik grabbed me and started running quickly into the woods while the authorites shouted, "FREEZE! CEASE YOUR RUNNING, YOU THIEF!"
After a good 20 minutes of panting and running, the Draik dropped me off and laid down in the grass, exausted from all that running. He look at me with a gaze of despair and then said:
"YOU! You've been nothing but trouble, you unlucky jumble of gears and metal! I guess you're not worth it after all... that's it. I'm out of here, before I get in even more trouble!
With that he ran away again, and for the next two days I just stood there in those dark woods, as still as possible, hearing the howling of Zomutts and the whispers of Whoots. The following morning a new Neopet came up to me.
"Hello my little friend!" he said. "Are you lost?"
This Neopet looked different from the others. He was a robot Grundo, and his voice was really deep and metallic, just like mine! I simply stood there in silence, and after a while I gently nodded.
"Well, don't worry," he said. "I'll take care of you! You need a good rest, pal -- you look exhausted! Come, I'll take you home!"
And that, my friends, was my first encounter with Cronokeeper! Ever since that moment he has been taking care of me at home, and together with his brothers and their Petpets, we live as a family, cheering each other up and playing together in our cozy home.
