Pet Name: ratxheart
Ratxheart hesitantly trudges up to you. Without making eye contact, she nervously blurts out, "So I guess I'm supposed to tell you about myself."
She pauses to let out a deep sigh. After a moment she begins, "As you can see, I'm a grey Techo...
"Lots of the other Neopets always talk about how envious they are of Grey painted pets." Ratxheart shakes her head slowly. "They don't know how tough it is to be Grey, though."
Ratxheart twiddles her thumbs and goes on, continuing to stare at the ground, "See, I live in Moltara... and don't get me wrong, I've tried to make friends.. it's just kind of complicated.
"I often get mixed up with rocks because of my color.. and well, I guess you could say we are kind of similar. I mean, I am pretty slow... My brothers and sisters tell me I 'mope' too much, but that's just how I am! I mean it's not like I'm relic colored or anything like that!"
Ratxheart kicks the ground a little bit. "Despite all that, being a Grey Techo has its pluses. If I move slowly enough, I can blend in with the rocks in Moltara and make my way around past the guards to some cool places in the quarry."
She lights up a little bit as she elaborates on her hobby. "I like going there and seeing all the spectacularly unique different kinds of rocks." Ratxheart smiles. "It's amazing how something so overlooked can actually be quite beautiful."
Ratxheart glances up at you briefly and blushes before looking back down. "I mean, at least I think so. But sometimes I do wish I had more friends that would go with me to check these things out..."
The Grey Techo slowly trods over to a rock where she sits down. "Other than that, the things I enjoy are basking in the warmth of Moltara, heading over to the Lost Desert on special occasions to play with my siblings, reading books..." She hugs her tail and contemplates, "Oh, and there's also the things my owner tries to encourage me to do.
"She says I need to boost my confidence so I can be more happy, so we will head over to Neopia Central sometimes to enter these horridly scary things called 'Beauty Contests'. I want to make my owner happy, but I hate those things! There are so many other pets there that are so fantastic looking! And they all try to talk to you at once!" She glances to the side. "If you couldn't tell, I don't like loud places...
"One thing that my owner signs me up for that I kind of am starting to like, though, is Battledome training with the amazing Techo Master at the Mystery Island Training School! I'm so proud to be his student! It's amazing the moves he does! I wish I could be as good as he is at Battledome Martial Arts. My owner says if I keep it up, one day I will be, though!" She pauses abruptly. "Oh... I've been going on too long about that, haven't I?"
"Sorry," she gulps. "I'm not normally this talkative..."
She smiles again shyly. "But that's about it with me."
