Submit your pet to the Pet Spotlight!
"You can't do this to me!"
"Come on, Pitua! Just one quick zap! Zervan doesn't want to try it. Have a go!"
"I refuse to let that thing anywhere near me," I said defiantly. "Look at it! It's like some sort of killing device. "
Sessurea sighed. "They wouldn't give it to the public if it wasn't safe," she said with a small smile. "That scientist is mad, but not that mad. "
"Oh, really?" I pointed to a small sign on the machine. "'WARNING - This process could severely damage your pet. . . we at Neopets take no responsibility for what happens when you do this!!!' You call that safe?!?! I'm quite happy as a Kougra, thank you very much. "
Sessurea looked at her pet. "Pitua, I love you as much as any of my pets, but do you really want to live out your days as a Mutant Kougra?"
I poked out my tongue at her. "Zandel's a Mutant, and his owner doesn't mind. "
"Don't you go comparing me to Carly," Sessurea said sternly. "She collects Mutants, of course she doesn't mind.
"Pitua, aren't you sick of being the. . . . less pretty one of the family? Zervan always wins the Beauty Contests, and you never get any limelight!"
"But. . . but what if I turn into something worse? Like a Red Tuskaninny or something?"
Sess frowned. "Carter would be very offended by that, you know. But anyway, if that does happen, we can keep zapping you. You'll get something good, I promise. "
"No! I'm too scared. Why can't Nervol do it?"
"She's too much of a chicken!" Sessurea laughed. "And anyway, I don't really want to change her colour. "
"All sorts of horrible things could happen, Mum," I said. "I could change gender or anything!"
"Well. . . . yes, I know we can't guarantee anything, but it has to be worth a try. Come on. "
Pitua signed. "Fine. But if I turn out like Carter, I have you to blame. "
"You won't regret it, hun," Sessurea said. "Honest. "
"Alright, alright! I admit it. The Lab Ray was good after all. It would be nice if I didn't have to go everywhere in a bucket of water, though. Being a Koi isn't very practical. "
Sessurea laughed. "You could just try flying, you know. You have wings for a reason. "
"A flying fish?" I exclaim. "People would keel over and die if they saw me!"
Sessurea grinned at me. "Oh, I don't know. You're a rather fetching pet, if you ask me. Hurry up, we'll be late for the Pet Spotlight. "
Pitua looked glum. What am I supposed to say up there? I have no idea what to talk about. "
"Well. . . . why don't you tell them about how you became a Faerie Koi?"
