Pet Name: Ozmodeus
The evening sun dips below the horizon, casting Neopia in a warm ruddy glow.
The glow lasts only a few minutes before the cool tones of twilight take
over. This is how our scene begins, along magical road in Neopia Central...
Street lamps flicker on, neohome windows illuminated by the light inside. In
Vera Lynn's home, it in uncharacteristically quiet. There is not the normal
bickering of siblings, no laughter or sounds of play with petpets and toys.
The only room that seems to be alive at all is the family room. Vera Lynn
lies upon a couch, dozing quietly, a tattered copy of Cybunny Down resting
in her hands. Ozmodeus sits on the couch as well, cuddling with Loki his
barbat. He gives a sigh, seeming quite at unrest, and prods Vera with a
"Mum...Mum..." He continues to prod her until she shifts, mumbling
incoherently. She sits up, blinking and pulls off her glasses, rubbing her
eyes, "Yes Oz, what's the matter?"
Oz reached up, scratching his ear, "I'm bored. The girls all get to go to
their sleep overs, but I have nothing to do. No offence or anything Mom, but
it's kind of boring here."
Vera chuckled softly and gave a glance to her watch, "Oh holy kau! I didn't
realize it was this late! Hungry Oz?"
Oz just shook his head, "I'm not a baby, I made myself a sandwich earlier."
Vera smiled, leaning down to kiss his forhead and ruffle his headfur, "Nice
to have someone who can make their own sandwiches. So you're bored huh?
Well, it's a warm night, want to go out to the garden and hang out? Tell
Oz nodded and shrugged lightly, "Works for me."
Vera gathered a blanket and a few peices of fruit in case they wanted to
snack, and the three of them headed out into the garden. They spread out the
blanket on the soft grass. The night was cozy, crisp, but not cold, and the
plants were all cast in shades of blue of nightime. Oz and Vera sat down,
looking up at the starry sky above, once again silent, until Vera spoke up,
"Hmm, well, here we are. The garden is nice even at night. The girls are
going to be gone tommorow too, want to help me plant some flowers?"
Oz crooked his head to the side, pointing to a flower by the gazebo, "Sounds
good, but didn't you plant flowers today, that one looks new."
Vera looked as well, "Hey, I don't remember planting anything like that!"
Together they wandered over to look at the strange plant.
The flower was vaguely like a lily, of deep royal puple, the bud all coiled
up, and the leaves slightly crackled and dry. Oz touched the flower
gingerly, "Mom! It's dying!"
Vera nodded, looking concerned, and went to the house to get a watering can.
She handed it to Oz, "You could try it. Maybe it just needs some love and
Oz nodded, and took the water, pouring it at the base of the flower. With a
sudden jerk, the stem of the flower went rigid, and the leaves started
waving about wildly. The plant began to give off a sweet sweet scent, and
the bud began to glow, and slowly open. Within it, a tiny glowing yellow
faerie stood. She looked up with a bright smile on her face and flittered
up, kissing him on the nose, blessing him. "Thank you, gentle child, for the
care you have shown. By your care, I am free!" She flittered away, leaving
glowing dust in her wake. Oz blinked and smiled, a blush reaching his
cheeks, "Wow, that was certainly different."
Vera was equally astonished. She had a knack for stating the obvious, "Wow,
it was a Faerie." Oz smiled and just watched the flower. By now, fire flies
had smelled the lush scent of the rare lily and gathered round, dancing and
cavorting as the are wont to do. Wordlessly, Vera and Oz watched their
display very very late into the night, both feeling happy and content with
The next morning, Oz wandered into the garden, but the flower had
