Lady_Batu is my name. As you can see, I am a blue skeith. I will tell you the story of my life if you want to hear it. You may find it sad, but I assure you it has a somewhat happy ending.
The earliest thing I remember is sitting in the pound. I was confused. I couldn't remember anything. Then I realised I was in a cage! I began to push against the bars as a pink uni came by.
"Hello. I am the keeper of the Neopian Pound. Your previous owner requested that you be brainwashed, but you'll start to remember important things in a while, don't worry," she said.
"I think I remember. I live in Neopia and my name is Lady_Batu, right?" I asked.
"Right. Do you know what species you are?" the uni replied.
"Um...a...skeith?" I said unsurely.
"Correct!" the uni stated enthusiastically.
"How old am I?" I asked.
"About 24 hours," answered the uni. "That's only one day." With that, she walked away.
I sat in the pound for days. I was fed, but not to well. Berries, mostly. Half-eaten berries. Uggh! I saw many people looking for pets to adopt, but most of them walked by me.
"Mommy! Mommy! I want that one!" shouted a little scorchio, pointing at me one day. I tried my best to look cute and lovable.
"Why, Flame! Can't you see it's an ugly skeith? Let's take that ixi over there," the scorhio's owner told him. A tear ran down my face.
Then one day, young girl named Zombie Faerie and a blue yurble named KewlBlueGlitterGirl walked into the pound. Zombie walked through the cages, talking to the pets, but not adopting any. Then she left at closing time.
Every day Zombie and KewlBlueGlitterGirl walked in. Every day they had conversations with nearly every pet in the pound. Every day they left.
But one day was different. I was 98 hours old by then. Zombie was having a conversation about Jazzmosis with a krawk. Then she looked my way.
"Poor thing. I bet no one wants to adopt you. Well, someone does now," she smiled. Before I knew it, I was walking home with her and my new eight-hour-old sister.
So that's my life. I hope any of you pets out there in the pound will be able to tell a story something like mine
