Pet Name: Zedilsepro
Zedilsepro...(Zed for short)...he hadn't many friends from the very beginning and even less now that he had managed to have been painted Halloween...you see, now he's not only strange, but scary-looking as well. With his flaming hooves and red eyes, anyone would run in fear from him.
Halloween-a day he both likes very much yet dislikes greatly due to all the pets scurrying about. At least he didn't have to worry about scaring anyone tonite, right?
He found an empty jack-o-lantern and stuck some string through it to make a rather adorable candy holder for trick-or-treating. As he left, he sighed sadly, wondering what kind of torture he might go through on this night...
The very first house he came to was decorated in pure orange and black lights, skeletons and witches (mainly little clones of Edna) lining the yard. Several pets had already raided that house for candy, but Zed might as well try his luck.
He approached cautiously and knocked...a big fire lupe answered with a huge bowl of candy, smiling and offering them to the timid uni.
"Hello there," he said to Zed, "And what might you be this Halloween?"
Zed stared at him, lowering his head a bit. "I'm...um.." he paused, not knowing what to say really...after all, he wasn't wearing a costume. "I'm myself."
The lupe laughed. "Yourself? Why, where is your costume, eh?"
Zed lowered his head even more. "I um....I don't need one."
"Don't need one!" the lupe almost jumped right out of his doorway. "Of course you need one! Everyone should dress up on Halloween!"
Zed blinked. "But I'm scary enough as I am..."
The lupe laughed again. "Scary? You? Never! To be scary, you must both dress and act scary! Why, you're the least scary character I've seen all night!"
Zed blushed. This was the first time anyone had ever complimented him so much on his "scary" looks.
The lupe smiled and put his bowl of candy down. "Here, lemme see what I can do for you." he went inside and after a few seconds returned with a pure white sheet. He draped it over Zed who stared out of two small holes that had been cut out of the sheet so he could see.
"I am...a ghost?" Zed asked.
The lupe smiled. "Not quite..." he went into his yard and began plucking handfulls of grass and leaves from trees. He came back to Zed, putting the greenery on the ground and pulling out some glue. He then began gluing the grass and leaves to the sheet where Zed's jet black hair would be.
It was a rather rigid attempt, but from afar, Zed would have looked like a regular green uni...save for his flaming hooves sticking out from under the sheet.
Zed looked back up at the lupe, wondering why in Neopia he would have dressed him as such. And yet again, the lupe only smiled.
And so, Zed went through the night dressed as a normal uni, unpainted yet very happy, his flaming hooves lighting his way. Many wanted to ask why he would dress as a normal uni, why he hadn't gone on just being himself...but what would be the point of that? Though less scary, he was able to have more fun than he had ever been able to have before. And that in itself was worth it all.
