Have you ever been part of a large group, and when people see you, you get lost in the mix? Have you ever tried to stand out, and find that there's always someone better than you? Well that's what happens every day to Malkyhor. The poor kougra never seems to feel important, but when your family is made up of seven other talented and unique pets, who would?
However, Malkyhor is not an ordinary mutant kougra. Once a korbat, he has a love of the dark and of flying, even though he now lacks wings. Here is his story.
Malkyhor wandered outside, his dark fur looking pale in the moonlight. His paws carried him to the edge of the haunted woods, away from the noise and chaos of home. Home was a large, lopsided stone building, filled with his happy, loud family. He could hear a faint explosion, and high pitched yells and giggles. RavenNevermore was trying out some new potions. He sighed. She would be the next Kauvara at this rate.
He felt calmed by the silence of the night and the patchwork of light filtering through the trees. He was at home in these woods. A korbat soared by, and he gazed at it longingly. He wished he could still fly. Sometimes OkamiMaiya would take him flying, though she was a lupe she was gifted with wings. His thoughts wandered to the rest of his family. DuzieWuzie had his own petpet, a Zomutt, so he got lots of attention. Everyone loved the hyper balls of fuzz that were Magicgirlprettysami and PrinceSeiliez, too. Twilightmistmagic might be able to shrug off being normal, but then again she spent all her time saving for a ghost paint brush. Duelingqueenmai could only meow, but her disability just made her all that more fun. Nobody cared for a mutant.
Maiyairu didn't count as an owner. She was more of a crazy girl who wore aisha ears and tried to keep some even crazier pets under control. She tried to keep them all happy, but sometimes even she would forget him.
Malkyhor was surprised to see that he had already reached his favorite clearing in the woods. But what surprised him more was the beautiful faerie waiting there. She was a light faerie, and the clearing was filled with her soft glow.
"Hello, Malkyhor," she said, her voice sounding like music. "I have a gift for you. " Malkyhor's eyes widened as light began to gather at her palms. He was momentarily blinded, and as the light spots disappeared he saw that the fairy was holding a beautiful red gem in her hands. "I know how you are feeling," she told the kougra. "And I think that this will help. "
Malkyhor stood up on his hind legs and gently picked up the gem with his paw.
"From now on, when you need to get away from you troubles or just have fun, that gem will let you fly. " Malkyhor's eyes widened as he suddenly felt a weight on his shoulders. His stare of disbelief turned to pure joy as he turned around. He had wings.
A note from Maiyairu: I mentioned pets on both of my accounts (meowryoohki and twilightdestinymai) if you are confused about
where all the names came from.
