Pet Name: skorch816
You are walking along the street when a fire scorchio seems to wave at you from a bench. How odd, you don't remember having a fire scorchio as a friend. You would probably remember their fiery wings. Maybe you should go over there and ask who he is?
The scorchio sees you coming over to him and jumps off the bench.
"Hi! You must have seen that I was troubled and came to see what was wrong!" The scorchio seems so happy to see you. You were about to point out that he waved to you to come over, but taking a glance at his huge fire wings, decide not to.
"I'm skorch816 by the way." He puts his hand out for you to shake, quickly regretting the action because his hand is also covered in flame.
"It’s nice to meet you, skorch816," you answer, trying to not get nervous around his flaming wings. What if you catch fire? Burn marks aren't fashionable this season.
"I'm glad you came over. I'm really sad." He pauses, glancing at you.
"I got kicked out of my favorite store today!" Skorch816 continues without waiting for an answer. Maybe he just needed the company.
"I was just walking through the aisle minding my own business, when my wing bumped an item. Unfortunately, that item happened to be a very fragile Faerie Queen Doll!"
You gasp in surprise. A Faerie Queen Doll? Those things are super rare, and HE broke one!
"I don't have the money to pay for it, so I'm kicked out until I can buy a new one! If I EVER get that much money, I'm not spending it on that Faerie Queen Doll! Maybe people shouldn't put their Faerie Queen Dolls out on display!" he says, rolling his eyes.
You're about to comment back when he starts talking again. "Who do they think they are? They can't be putting high quality items where someone can knock them over, or catch fire, or be trampled, or anything harmful! Of course, that would be okay if it was something like carrots!..."
The scorchio seems to be forgetting that you're even there. Maybe this is a good time to run.
The scorchio starts to ramble to himself. You decide to start a conversation.
“Do you have a petpet?” you ask. You thought it was a simple question.
“Oh, yes! My dal, Bolts, is a very nice petpet,” he exclaims.
“Isn’t that one of those robot petpets?” you ask. You ARE pretty informed about your petpet species.
“That species is one of the newer ones. I really liked it, plus I had spare parts lying around. I thought why not build myself a petpet?”
“Wow! You built it yourself?” you answer, starting to get interested in this conversastion.
“Well, I said I tried. After a while I just got someone else to do it for me.” He smiles sheepishly.
Then you hear a small beeping noise coming from his watch.
“Oh, sorry, time to go!” he exclaims and flies off into the sky.
You stare, dazed, at the place where the scorchio was standing. There are burn marks on the ground. Now you forgot what you were doing out here! You sigh and walk home. It’s time to get a hobby, you say, yawning.
