Pet Name: x____ShortCake____x
My name is x____ShortCake____x, but I'm sure I could let you call me Shorty. I'm a well educated pet, and I thought it was time I shared some of my knowledge with the general Neopian public. I am often asked how I came to be a Lutari, so now is my chance to explain once and for all.
When I was younger, I was a baby kougra. I always felt a nagging inside of me that I was not destined to be what I was, and I know my mother felt it too. I had a strange connection with Lutari Island, and I always wished I could swim. This was a challenging and confusing time for me and I began to withdraw into my books. I found myself reading a lot about different species, and methods of changing my own.
One day my mother obtained access to the secret laboratory ray, and I saw my siblings grow and change as a result of a crazy scientists experimentations with the ray. I read up, and one day I mustered the courage to ask my mother if she would consider zapping me. She sat me down and told me that she understood how I felt, and that she felt there was something that needed to be done but she was unsure if I knew the risks, after all I was only a baby. Finally, after much nagging, my mother was persuaded to let me go to the lab ray daily.
I was rather disappointed when nothing happened for a long while, and I became disheartened. When I became a Desert Kougra I was even more uncomfortable in myself. I went through many other changes with the ray though, I changed gender and I discovered my potential as a battle pet.
One evening, just as I was beginning to give up all hope, I trudged to the laboratory with my head hung low. I sat down in the chair for what felt like the millionth time and the ray was fired. Suddenly I felt a warm tingling in my spine and I blacked out. I came to as the lab scientist splashed water on my face, the water slid off, my fur had become waterproof somehow. “Success!”, cried the scientist and I looked at him, confused. “Young pet, my experiments have been a complete success – you are a green Lutari.”
I wasn't exactly thrilled with my green fur, but I was thrilled with being a Lutari. When I went down to the river, other pets didn't look at me sideways. I could dive, I could swim. My mother went to pains to paint me pink so that I would be the happiest pet ever seen in Neopia, and now I am.
I continue my quest for knowledge, and my passion for battle has not subsided but what has changed in my life is I am content. I am content with every aspect of my life, and I certainly consider myself beautiful. I am finally the pet I was destined to be.
