Pet Name: Feeble
The Princess Feeble.
Feeble is her name. In no way does this portray either her strength or her intelligence. On the contrary, this Quiggle frequents Krawk Island carrying a pouch containing dubloons and reads any books I take home from long days of haggling at the many bookshops around Neopia. This last habit is much to the dismay of another Neopet in our household, but that's a different story. Her name does, however, describe her inability to distinguish reality from her imagination. To us, she's our darling regular Quiggle. Friendly, eager and stubborn. To her, she's a princess in training to one day be queen.
Feeble once visited Brightvale with me and the rest of our family. She met the great King Hagan who praised her on her knowledge. The King had a little chat with her about something. We still don't know what it was as she won't tell us up to this day. Something happened to her in that short meeting. She started to create fantasies about being King Hagan's daughter and what it would be like to be taught by his advisers to one day be Queen herself. These days the fantasy has become her reality. She dresses appropriately, teaches herself etiquette and takes classical dance lessons. Every day revolves around her perfecting her looks and manners. Every day, her time is spent learning and practising. She never tires; she never has a bad day. She often treads around Neopia Central gracefully, like a princess is supposed to. Many a Neopet that cross her path genuinely believe she actually is royalty, since she believes this herself.
Have I tried to tell her it isn't so? No, never. The reason for this is that Feeble is happy. Happier than our family has ever seen her. Why try to break the spell?
I haven't taken her back to Brightvale yet. I'm afraid she'll try to make her way to the castle and roughly have her fantasy shattered. The Neopet family and myself are very protective over Feeble. She believes we are her guardians until that one day she'll be queen. We never tell her otherwise. This doesn't mean we tell her this is the truth, but we avoid direct subjects like this. Sometimes, Neopets and caretakers come up to us when they realise Feeble is part of our family and ask us what's going on. I usually tell them she's practising for a play. That they could perhaps help keep her in character. Until now, this has been very successful. With these words I tell the whole of Neopia. I ask of you not to shatter her dreams.
I am afraid of what will happen if her 'reality' will fade. Maybe she'll remember how we've treated her and she might be angry. On the other hand, she could be thankful. These are happy times for her and for us. She brings joy in our neohome. She's always a bright spirit (which cannot be said about the other Neopets in our family, haha!).
We'll keep her safe. We'll give her new reasons to be happy should she come out of it. For she'll always be our private princess.
