Pet Name: Quiltelta
My uni, Quiltelta, hadn't always wanted to be paint Tyrannian; in fact, she never wanted to. Her dreams were always to be painted brown. She thought it was the best color a uni could ever be. Quiltelta never had thought that she would want to be painted Tyrannian, but that all changed one day.
We were playing Key Quest together. After a long and hard game, we finally got to the Key Quest door with all of the keys. Quiltelta jumped with joy. "Finally, we won!"
I smiled at her. With the gold key in my fists, we skipped happily to the vault room. There, in front of us, was a shining gold door. "It's beautiful," I had whispered without knowing I was talking out loud.
"Well, let's see what's in it!" I could see that Quiltelta was extremely excited. I couldn't blame her; we usually never got gold keys. Taking the key, I unlocked the golden door. I was looking at my yellow uni before I saw the prize we had gotten. Then, I saw her jaw drop. Right there in the vault was a Tyrannian Paint Brush.
Later, I brought all my four neopets to the Rainbow Pool. "Who wants to be painted Tyrannian?" I asked them all. I saw my grundo and hissi sigh. I knew why; they couldn't be painted that color. My lupe shook his head; he was already painted ghost. Then I saw Quiltelta smile and say yes. I never knew she would give up her dreams of being a brown uni, to be a Tyrannian uni. Grasping the paint brush in my hand, I smiled. The beautiful yellow uni stepped into the Rainbow Pool. I closed my eyes happily and painted her slowly. As she stepped out, I saw her jaw drop.
"I never knew I would be this beautiful, by being painted TYRANNIAN!" She spun around in circles and finally sat on the ground grooming her long hair. "Thank you, you are the best owner I've EVER had."
On the way back to our home in Meridell, many of our neofriends had seen us, and they all told me how Quiltelta looked great in Tyrannian color. Finally reaching home, Quiltelta quietly raced to her room. "I wonder what she's up to?" I thought to myself.
The newly painted uni looked at herself in her mirror, then glanced at pictures she had drawn when she was little of her being a brown uni. A tear fell down her cheek. "Did I make the right choice?" She looked down and began to cry softly. Quiltelta then heard my footsteps walking into her room. She quickly stood straight and looked at me.
"I know you're sad about your choice." I saw the uni's tears sliding down her cheeks. I sat down on her bed. "In your life you will have to make hard choices about your dreams; in fact, you can be this color and still be able to become painted brown later."
"Really, you would paint me brown?" Quiltelta's face brightened up.
"Yes, and I will."
