Pet Name: magician5
Magician5 slowly slithered up the path, swinging his long, spotted, custard coloured tail back and forth as he went. His weak arms, carrying the weight of his upper body with great difficulty. As he reached his neohome, panting for breath, forcing himself to take each step towards the door, his elegant head swayed from one side to the other and then, it went dark.
“Magicain5, Magician5!” Jade_Stone shouted as the Spotted Techo slowly came round, now lying out on his Symol sofa in the bamboo covered front room. “Are you okay?” asked the concerned Zafara.
“Ouch!” Magician5 sat up. “That was one fierce training session at the Mystery Island Training School.” he sighed. “I don’t know if I’m cut out to be Monkeybytes battle pet.”
“Don’t be silly!” Jade_Stone told him. “Monkeybytes loves us all and would never put us in danger. She’ll see what today’s training has done to you and give you a break for a while. You’ll see.” giving Magician5 a huge smile, reaching her sparkling soft blue eyes.
Magician5 couldn’t help but smile back. “Okay, you’re right of course. Just like you always are.” the Spotted Techo laughed, and sat up, wincing at the pain in his ribs, sipping the strawberry butter tea Jade_Stone had passed him.
Later that day, Monkeybytes came gliding through the neohome’s brightly painted door and saw the site of Magician5 on the sofa.
“Oh my!” she exclaimed. “What happened? The Monocerous?” she rushed over to sit by her pet, putting her arm around him.
“Training.” Magician5 said, simply, hanging his head in shame. “I’m sorry.”
Monkeybytes frowned. “Sorry? Don’t be sorry. I shouldn’t have pushed you so hard. If I didn’t want to beat the Pant devil so badly, this wouldn’t have happened she told him. “I’m the one who’s sorry.”
Magician5 smiled. His owner did love all of them dearly. Monkeybytes went to the plaza with no delay to fetch some medicine for him and Con_Fuzzed and Fluff_Tuft came into the room, laughing over some joke they had read in the comic section of the Neopian Times that morning.
“What happened to you?!” Fluff_Tuft the Acara asked in surprise. Magician5 rolled his eyes. He was fed up of telling everyone what a failure he was.
“Training…” he started, unable to look at his siblings. Con_Fuzzed laughed, hard. He laughed so hard that he couldn’t breathe for a moment.
“What are you laughing at Con_Fuzzed?!” Monkeybytes asked, alarmed, as she knew full well what he thought was so funny. Con_Fuzzed pointed a stubby finger at the poor Techo sitting in front of him. “Shame on you. I’m disappointed that you find other peoples misfortune funny.” Monkeybytes scolded him, and the smile was wiped right off his face.
“Right Magician5, drink this.” she said, turning away from the Quiggle, now holding his head low. Magician5 drank the honey flavoured liquid, Monkeybytes had brought home for him and felt 100% better immediately. “Better?” she asked.
“Much. Thank you!” Magician5 replied.
“I’ve got another surprise for you.” Monkeybytes went on, holding a ticket in the air. “This in a ticket for the Neolodge. The full works, just for you. To make up for pushing you too hard.” Magician5 gasped. A sharp intake of breath came from a rather sorry looking Quiggle behind them.
“I, I, I...” he couldn’t express his gratitude enough.
“That’s okay.” Monkeybytes told him. “You’re welcome.”
Magician5 had a great time at the Neolodge site of the Presidential Palace. He enjoyed the Jacuzzi, restaurant, swimming pool and sauna while he was there, and made sure to make use of the tennis courts and fitness gym as well to get into shape for what he had planned to pay Monkeybytes back when he came out again. He had a magnificent time and loved his owner more than ever for it.
“There you are!” Monkeybytes greeted him as he came pounding out, down the steps into his owners open arms. “We all missed you.” she told him giving him a big hug.
“All missed me?” Magician5 asked. “Even Con_Fuzzed?”
“Especially Con_Fuzzed.” Monkeybytes smiled. “He’s made a cake and everything.”
“Awwwww.” Magician5 laughed. “Can we stop off at the Battledome first?” he asked with a little smile.
Monkeybytes was confused but agreed anyway. As they got to the Arena, Magician5 scurried in through the big doors and told Monkeybytes to take a seat in the stand. Still confused, she did as she was told. “Who’s up today anyway?” she thought to herself. “Punchbag Bob?”
“And now welcome your opponents for today!” a Kyriis’ voice announced over the loud speaker that echoed through the entire stadium. “First we have the magnificent, the very cute, MAGICAIN5!” The crowd cheered as Monkeybytes’ rather small, innocent looking Techo jumped out of the shadows to reveal himself. Monkeybytes wondered whom her poor defenceless Techo would be fighting.
“And, seconded, we have the ferocious, the terrifying, PANT DEVIL!” The crowd cheered even louder. Monkeybytes gasped and started to bite her nails.
After the fight, Magician5 stumbled out of the doors of the dressing room where his owner was franticly pacing up and down, waiting.
“Magician5!” she practically yelled at him. “What were you thinking?!” She was nearly hysterical.
Magician5 pulled something out from behind his back and held it up to Monkeybytes with a huge smile “But it’s sooo shiny.” he grinned, holding up the trophy from his big win.
Monkeybytes couldn’t resist the big eyes from her dearest Techo and smiled. “Yes it’s a beautiful trophy. And you deserve it Magician5. Well done. I’m so proud. You‘re the best pet anyone could ask for.” she gave him another big hug and they set off home...
