Pet Name: Sewings
Five years ago, Sewings took a visit to the Empire's Headquarters for a school field trip. The Empire was the center for all things space-related and the pinnacle of science and technology. The small, bumbling plush Scorchio wandered around the station, his clumsy feet tripping over wires and his spiked tail sending displays and signs wobbling in his wake. Suddenly, he bumped into a blue Aisha who was hurriedly rushing through the corridor. He quickly realized that she had a collar with a number on it. A space cadet! He had finally met a real live space cadet!
Sewings' jaw was left agape as he stared at her. She looked at him strangely, before introducing herself. "Hey there! I'm Kisua, or number 74. Are you have fun exploring HQ?"
Sewings continued to stare - his tongue was twisted in his throat. The Aisha peered at him curiously as he finally blurted out, "I WANT TO BE JUST LIKE YOU AND EXPLORE SPACE AND SEE THE STARS AND FLY IN MY OWN SPACESHIP."
The Aisha seemed somewhat taken aback by his loud outburst, before she burst out laughing and replied, "Nice to meet you too, kid!"
She informed him that she was on a two week leave in between deployments. She had been in the space program for over five years now, and had seen just about everything there was to see. It was the first time he had seen anyone so... fascinating and terrifying at the same time. He was fascinated by her tales of space travel and hungrily devoured her many stories. He was also incredibly terrified of her and her intensity.
Nevertheless, Sewings grew quickly enamored with Kisua and loudly vowed that he would become a space patroller like her. In response, Kisua laughed heartily and poked his plush belly, exclaiming, "I can tell you're a bright kid, but you're not fit for life in a spaceship! They need more brilliant neopets like you here to guide cadets like me out there!"
Seeing his disheartened expression, Kisua dug into her suit pocket and pulled out a broken piece of meteorite that she had extracted from the wing of her ship. "Here, take this! Even if you can't be an actual space patroller, I make you an honorary crew member of Ship Sal!"
They parted ways, and from that day onward Sewings held firmly onto his Meteorite and delved deeply into his books and encyclopedias. His fascination with rocks of all forms and meteorites grew and grew. Until one day, at least, Sewings graduated from the top academy in Neopia and joined HQ. His research soon grew to become some of the most quintessential. He quickly became one of the finest scientists the Empire had ever seen, and he remained ever faithful to his favorite space cadet - 74, for showing him all he could be. Fondly, he pulled the piece of meteorite that Kisua had handed him so many years past, observing his smooth edges. Over time, it had worn smooth and shiny, but his memory of his first meeting with HQ and Kisua remains ever sharp in his memory.
