Pet Name: NightSpyce
I'd always loved food. More specifically, food that was sweet and sugary, chocolatey, warm and fragrant - if anything like that was put on our table, then I would be the first to make it disappear!
You can imagine my surprise when my mum took me to one of my brother Swift's daily zapping sessions, and the scientist zapped me instead. I'm NightSpyce, and this is my story...

"Muumm, Spyce ate the gingerbread Wocky!" moaned Forangeh, as her sister tried, and failed, to disguise her munching as crumbs fell down her chin. "It was the last one, too!"
"Sorry," mumbled Spyce, "you know I can't resist! Here, have some cheese - your favourite." Spyce handed Forangeh a slice of cheese, which she gratefully accepted.
"Oh, alright - but I bagsy the next biscuit!" replied Forangeh, munching the cheese as she walked away.
"Hmm, I'll just have to hide it from her..." thought Spyce, as she started hatching a plan to do so. However, her thoughts were cut short, as her mum, Hanalicia, yelled down from upstairs. "Spyce, get dressed - we're taking Swift to the lab!"
"But Mum," Spyce replied, "do I have to? I was gonna make cookies today!"
"Yes," replied Hanalicia, walking down the stairs with Swift, her brother - "especially as you ate the last gingerbread Wocky!"
Sighing, Spyce put on her favourite pink heart glasses and frilly skirt, absent-mindedly wishing they suited her better - orange eyes with pink clothes are NOT a good combination!

"Well, here we are!" announced Hanalicia, as all three walked into the secret laboratory. Spyce gasped and looked around her. The walls were a deep grey-blue, and a lone light was flickering constantly, barely lighting up the darkness. "Mum," whispered Spyce, "I... I don't like this place that much!"
"Don't worry," replied Hanalicia. "We'll be out of here soon. Swift knows what to do!"
"Come on, sis - I'll take you to the zap room!" Swift took Spyce by the hand and led her in through a wooden door, with a 'Proceed with caution' sign on it. Spyce grudgingly followed her sister into the room and waited for the scientist to take her sister, zap her and then go home!
Suddenly, Spyce felt herself being lifted up from the floor and whisked across the room to be roughly dropped onto a metal platform. Too shocked to even scream, she looked upwards and saw a large laser pointing straight at her. "Swift!!" she shouted. "Help me!" Swift gasped, but before she could reach her little sister, she saw a large beam of light travel down towards Spyce on the platform, with sparks flying on either side. "SPYCE!" called Swift, and Spyce heard these words as she fainted.

"Spyce? Spyce, sweetie, wake up!"
"Mum, maybe you shouldn't call her that anymore. She might take it as name-calling..."
"Guys, shh, she's waking up!"
Slowly, Spyce opened her eyes, and saw her three siblings and her mum looking down at her. "What... what happened?" she asked as she tried to stand up, before realising she had no arms!
"Well," explained Hanalicia, "the scientist forgot to put on his glasses and zapped you instead of Swift. He didn't realise until afterwards, and he's given us a year's supply of biscuits to make up for it!"
"You're still a Grundo," said Swift, "but you've had a... colour change."
Spyce walked (or hovered, without realising...) to the mirror in her home, and looked at herself. She had turned pure white, and - more importantly - had no arms or legs; she had been zapped into a Mallow Grundo!
Her family waited anxiously in the background for her reaction, and Spyce turned towards them and smiled. "This is amazing - I can't believe it! I can blend in with my favourite food and, most of all, I don't have to worry about eating too much sugar!" Her family smiled, just as she realised something. "Hey, guys... I might need some help picking up the next gingerbread Wocky."
