Have you ever heard a story about "a merry-go-round Uni who wants to be a real Uni"?
Well, if you haven't, I'll tell you..
Once upon a time, there was a merry-go-round in Neopia carnival fairground. Its wooden seats were shaped in 5 different neopet species. There were Eyrie, Kau, Elephante, Peophin, and Uni. Every Neopian had their own favorite ride. Some Neopians loved to ride Eyrie, some Neopians loved to ride Peophin, and the others loved to ride Elephante, Kau, and Uni. Everybody was happy to ride on merry-go-round.
One day, a pink Uni walked arrogantly through it. She wore a fancy lacy flowery dress, shining sparkling luxurious jewelry and expensive gold shoes on each hoof. Merry-go-round Uni was very jealous. She also wanted to have dress, jewelry, and shoes just like her. Moreover, the pink Uni had a beautiful tail which was well-groomed.
Merry-go-round Uni said to Merry-go-round Peophin beside her:
“Look! What a beautiful pink Uni.”
“Yeah, she is.”
“I wanna be like her, a real Uni. Not just a wooden seat on a merry-go-round. Preening for many hours, make up my self to look my best, wear glamour dress, luxurious jewelry and gold shoes, shiny well-groomed tail and... Ooh... I sooooo wanna be like her. A real Uni.”
“Why are you not satisfied with your condition? You may not have those bling-bling things and you may be made of wood, but you have lots of Neopians who love you. Are you not remembering how Neopians smile on your back and hold you tight with happiness?”
It was already December. The carnival was very crowded because of a long holiday. It made the merry-go-round full with visitors who wanted to ride. It also made Merry-go-round Eyrie, Kau, Elephante, Peophin, and Uni so happy. Especially for Uni. She almost forgot her ambition to become a real Uni.
On Christmas Eve, the carnival would hold a fireworks show. So the carnival was full with visitors. Once again, Merry-go-round Uni saw the pink Uni who she saw a few days ago. But this time, the pink Uni was not wearing a fancy lacy flowery dress, shining sparkling luxurious jewelry and expensive gold shoes on each hoof. It was simple but more beautiful. She wore a deluxe red big ribbon wreath, a lacy red holiday tutu, a pair of seasonal wings and seasonal designer purse.
It made Merry-go-round Uni stare at her without blinking her eyes.
It was nearly midnight and the fireworks would be shown in fifteen minutes. So the Merry-go-round Uni made a wish to Santa for her Christmas gift.
“Dear Santa, can you make me a real Uni, who can run around Neopia, fly around Faerieland, preen for many hours and have an owner. Not just be a wooden set on this merry-go-round, do nothing, can not be customized and not adopted. Thank you, Santa, for granting my wish.”
DUuaarrrr... it was fireworks. The clock showed it was 00:00 NST. And it was Christmas.
The Merry-go-round Uni was very sleepy and she was asleep.
In the morning, the Merry-go-round Uni woke up and found that she now was a...
