Pet Name: Cool_Whip_101
Cool_Whip_101 had always wanted a garden of her own but her mom always said, ‘No’
“Awww! But why not, Mom?”
“Because we don’t have the neopoints right now!” Yoududett102 almost screamed.
Tears came to Cool_Whip’s eyes at her mother’s anger. Yodudett’s face softened, “Tell you what, if you save up all the neopoints you can, you can buy your own seeds and I’ll even let you use some of the backyard for your garden.”
Cool_Whip nearly broke the vase she was standing next to, she jumped that high. “Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”
For the next month and a half Cool_Whip did all her chores and even asked for more when she was done. All the neopoints she earned went straight into the jar above her bed labeled, ‘Garden Money’.
Everyday after school when she passed the flower shop on the way home, she went inside to see what kind of seeds she would save up for. She really liked glass roses and dunkydoos but they cost 30 neopoints more than she had.
The shop owner saw the look of disappointment on her face and asked what was wrong?
“The flower seeds I want cost 30 neopoints more than I have,” Cool_Whip confessed.
“I’ll be right back,” the shop owner said as she slipped out the door.
Cool_Whip wondered what he was doing out in the snow.
When he came back in Cool_Whip said she must go home now.
He smiled and said good-bye.
When Cool_Whip stepped into the show she saw a little bag on the ground. Curiosity got the better of her and she picked it up. Inside was 30 bright, shiny neopoints!
Cool_Whip was so happy, she grinned and grinned. In the shop window she saw the shop owner watching her and she knew he was the one that put the neopoints on there for her to find.
She ran back into the store and asked for the two biggest bags of the glass rose and dunkydoo seeds. The shop owner pulled out an already wrapped package out from behind the counter. “There are some extra pebeanjay flower seeds in there, too,” he smiled.
“Thank you so much! You have no idea how much this means to me!” Cool_Whip returned his smile. She ran right home and told her mom what had happened on her way home from school.
Everyday after school Cool_Whip visits her great friend at the flower shop. They talk about their gardens, what seeds to put in for next spring, and about what new product will make their gardens lush and beautiful.
One day Cool_Whip asked the shop owner, “Why did you give me those neopoints that winter day?”
“Because you were so set on getting those seeds. I hated to see you so disappointed over 30 neopoints. And you reminded me of myself when I was young and wanted my own garden.”
They smiled to each other and continued talking of next spring.
It’s amazing what a few seeds can do.
