Pet Name: Kidah_Wingfoot
After stumbling through the Haunted Woods for over three hours, you finally see a light up ahead. You hurry toward it, trying not to trip on stray roots, hoping desperately to find who you're searching for. The Kougra was most insistent about this.
A pale, ghostly Draik peeks at you from behind a gnarled old tree. He lifts his glowing lantern up to see your face in the dark and then quickly averts his eyes with a sigh.
"Hello. Yes, I'm Kidah," he answers before you can even ask. "Moon sent you to find me, didn't she? She's always worrying..." He shakes his head softly and turns to call a small blue Noil from among the brambles. He notices your interest and smiles just a little.
"You know, Imbri was Moon's for ages, but I'm taking care of her now that my old petpet's... gone. Or maybe she's taking care of me. Depends on who you ask, I suppose..." The Noil tilts her fuzzy little head to watch Kidah drift by, and follows closely behind him, grass rustling around her with every step.
"I usually avoid people, but... you seem all right." He sighs and shakes his head. "Maybe it's just me, but everyone's always so noisy and nosy and... always asking how I am, and why I don't smile much..." He glances over at you with red pupils glowing within hollow, dark eyes. "That's why I like it out here in the woods, at night... when it's quiet. I can hear myself think, and there's nobody to bother me."
The Draik ducks down and plucks a notebook from the spot he was sitting in before you disturbed him. Tucking it carefully under his arm, he furrows his brow.
"No... I... prefer to keep my work to myself. Please, don't ask. Star's always prying, and it... upsets me." You recall the precocious young Meerca who was trying to wrestle with the Kougra earlier that evening. She was quite definitely the polar opposite of this melancholy neopet before you.
He pauses, watching you carefully, and seems as though he's decided something. The little noil starts at a sound and darts off into the shadows again, her deep blue fur melding with them and causing you to lose her quickly...
You realize suddenly that the lantern's light has been fading gradually since you met up with Kidah. You open your mouth to mention it to him, but he shakes his head again and smiles almost sadly as he backs away.
"Sorry to trouble you and waste your time, but can you just let them know... I'll be home by morning?"
The last thing you see, just after the light fades completely, is a pair of eerily glowing red eyes watching you in silence, then turning away.
