Pet Name: Taariq_Randi
How Taariq Became a Hero
She's the youngest of Fierwym's 'Pets,
Though she's got a great heart,
Her bravery and her "adventurer's grin"
Set this Gelert apart.
She's more watchful than the owl,
And sweeter than sugar candy,
And more adventurous than most would think,
This Gelert's name is Taariq_Randi.
Now that we're through introducing,
You should know what makes her heart soar.
Not food, not books, not battle, not looks,
This Gelert likes to explore.
It's not the exploring that most do,
Like "Let's go climb that tree,"
Or, "Here's a stream to cross,"
And, "Look at this grand sea!"
She does like these type of things,
But she likes something even more:
It's the whole of Neopia
That Taariq likes to explore.
So now that we're done introducing,
I'll tell you a tale 'bout her heart,
For though she small, her heart is great,
Terror Mountain is where we'll start.
Now, one warm day Taariq decided
That she'd like to go for a climb.
With her she brought her brother Yahto,
So talking could pass the time.
They climbed for what seemed like forever,
And the top seemed just as far,
Yahto complained that they should turn back,
But it didn't affect the young star.
She climbed on without ever tiring;
Though Yahto lagged on behind,
Finally they reached the Ice Caves
To show how far they had climbed.
Taariq peaked into one of the caves
To see what new thing was there.
To Yahto she said with a grin,
"I'll go in if you dare."
He looked inside and yelped
As he looked at the giant worm of ice.
"Taariq," he said, "That's the Snowager,
And I don't think he's very nice!"
"I'm only joking," she said with a laugh,
"C'mon, the top is near!
There's more to see up there,
And the cave to get there is right here."
Yahto sighed and followed his sister,
Shivering against the cold.
Though the oldest of Fierwym's 'Pets,
He knew that Taariq was more bold.
Up on top the two looked out,
And Taariq smiled her "adventurer's grin",
She sighed in awe and happiness,
And then turned back to him.
"Isn't it grand, this great sight?
So much there is to see.
I'm glad we came up here to explore,
And I'm glad the Explorer is me."
Yahto looked out and nodded his head,
Agreeing that it was nice.
Then he gasped, for below he heard
The cracking and snapping of ice.
Before he could leap to safety,
Before a word he could say,
Before he knew it, much too soon,
The ice below him fell away!
Yahto dangled by his two front paws,
With hesitation, Taariq grabbed the Lupe by the nape,
She dragged him back to safety and said with a grin,
"That's more dangerous than the Snowager awake."
Yahto grinned back and looked down,
Shivering not just because it was below zero,
"Taariq," he said, "You're more than an explorer,
You're title now also holds hero."
And now all you know of a Gelert named Taariq,
Whose favorite thing is to explore,
She'll smile for you her "adventurer's grin",
But her title holds even more.
For now it's not just the Explorer,
There's something that everyone should know,
For this Gelert with her unique grin
Is now also called a hero.
And though very few know her,
Though few can name her on sight,
Though very few have heard her name,
Taariq_Randi - Explorer and Hero - deserves Spotlight!
