Hello
[Page Under Construction]

I go by the name of Zlxyna, and I haunt a section of forest near the land of Meridell. I can be quite the polite hostess as you travel through this land. I can also be your worst nightmare. Treat my home with respect or perish with your rude behavior. I am attached to the land with the memories of acts I can never forget. Although, I wouldn't let that stop me from hunting down those who do not respect me. I can never completely die and I can never completely live. Hopefully you shall listen to my warnings.








Story

My story isn't a nice one, but if you're interested you can stick around.

When I was very young, I was taken from my mother. All I can remember about her was her beautiful night sky fur, bright yellow stars scattered across her chest and face in clusters. I was one of only two in the litter. My brother was also taken, but I have no idea where. He had fur just like hers, but with less stars. I was snow white like my father. I never knew why I was picked for testing, or how they even found us in our cozy den.

The journey took a couple days. I was put in a cage in the back of a van for the transit. The cage they tossed me in was made of cold metal. I was given nothing, not even a rag to retreat onto. It takes a special kind of cruelty to put a young pup through something like that.

I remember the van coming to an abrupt halt, making me slide and hit the harsh metal bars. I yelped in pain, but no one cared. They unloaded me and as they were carrying the cage to the facility, all I could see was a dense forest. As they brought me further I was able to make out a giant, dark green building. I found out later the color disguised the place from aerial view.

The scientists had observed me for a full 24 hours before anything began. Simple tests at first; showing my endurance and health. Once they determined I was a decent subject, the real testing began. They started out painless, giving me hope that my new life wouldn't be that bad. I was sent into reality soon after. Huge needles filled with toxic looking substances were injected into my legs and back. I often attempted to talk to the scientists studying me even though they never said anything back. I craved company, any sort of explanation as to why I was there. After enduring the loneliness for about a year, they brought in another female lupe. Her coat was thick, shiny, and black. I quickly befriended her; I needed someone. She said she was taken directly from birth, so she did not have a name nor any memories of her family. She became simply Shadow. Her cage was located right next to mine. Finally having someone to share my time with gave me a new spark. The tests were just as gruesome but instead of needing to sit alone with the pain and my thoughts, I was able to talk to Shadow and almost escape from reality for a while.

After some months, I was able to determine that they were collecting every kind of neopet with all different colors. For some reason, they didn't put anyone in the room that Shadow and I shared, but through the window in the door I could see the other test subjects being wheeled through the corridors. Our room eventually gained one more occupant, a male ghost lupe. As he was transparent in his confinement, at first we thought it was just an empty placeholder. His cage was made of a different looking metal than mine and made it so that he couldn't just phase through it. He was placed on the other side of me. I was excited to have another friend, but he was quite vicious to us at first. With the acceptance that he was truly stuck like we were, he settled down and eventually became our friend, even though he was a little irritable. He decided he wanted to just be called Ghost, following Shadow's lead of naming. He had a name before he was turned into a ghost, but he always refused to talk about that part of his life. Whenever we hinted at it, he immediately had a very sad hurt come to his eyes. We quickly got the hint and never learned anything about who he was before. Although I was happy to have him as a friend, his eyes always haunted me. Their blood red glow showed up in my nightmares along with the syringes and machinery. We spent our days not being tested enjoying each other's company, thankful that we didn't have to go through this alone. Shadow and I would sit there for hours listening to Ghost's stories about the outside world and the freedom of it. As long as we didn't touch on personal things, he would tell us about it for hours. I don't know what I would've done if I didn't have them.

The day it happened was just like every other day… except, we were all taken out of our cages. Usually it was one at a time, and at most two. They put me into a chamber I had never seen before and gave me a shot to put me to sleep. My world blacked out faster than I expected. The last thing I remember was the feeling of my body hitting the hard surface of the table.

When I woke up, I was in excruciating pain. My body felt like it didn't belong to me anymore as it thrashed on the table wildly. Eventually I regained control again. I stood up slowly, in pain and still not sure about my control, and looked at my reflection in one of the observing windows. Shocked would be an understatement. I was pale blue, almost transparent. In fact, I was slightly transparent. I thought I had died right then and there. Ghost had never told us what determines if someone turns to a ghost or just dies. Then I noticed the only thing that set me apart from a regular ghost. I had strange black rings on the fur of my neck, legs, and tail. I realized I couldn't be dead then, because of these rings. I continued to stand in awe at my reflection until the scientists apprehended me, sending me back to my cage.

I couldn't wait to see my friends again. I could ask Ghost to show me how to use my newly acquired abilities and I wondered what Shadow would think of my weird new look. When I arrived at my cage, I saw that it was changed to one like Ghost's. The scientists left silently and briskly, like usual.

Shadow glanced over at me. Something in her shocked stare was wrong. It looked half like she didn't recognize me and half like she was scared of me. I asked her what was wrong, but she continued to stare. Ghost told me to shut up bitterly, while Shadow stare turned sad. Anguish overwhelmed me. How could my best friends act like this? Then Shadow turned to me and said that I sounded like an old friend. I gave a confused look as she continued to say that they hadn't seen this "old friend" in about four months. Their actions suddenly made sense.

No wonder they looked sad. I told them it was still me. They could hardly believe their eyes. We spent the whole day discussing what the scientists could of done to me. The next morning I asked a scientist who had come to give us water. I was not expecting an answer, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to try. To my surprise he said "DNA experiment" in a bored tone and walked away. I looked to both of my companions, instantly knowing that their DNA was used.

A couple days later, they took me to a big room, painted black, with a large window stretching across one of the walls. Every day after they brought me to the same place. Occasionally, they would put things in the room with me to see how I would react or what I would do. I tried to show as little of my ghost abilities as I could, staying solid and just laying there. I couldn't let them use this experiment to mass produce half-dead half-alive beings. Who knows what they would have been used for, and I didn't want anyone to have to go through what I did.

One day, the careful scientists made a horrible mistake. That day, a zafara managed to escape from its cage while I was being put into the chamber for the daily observations. From the yelling of the scientists, I heard that the zafara had a horrible, contagious disease that would have meant the end of the facility if not captured ASAP. All the staff rushed to capture it, forgetting to secure the door on the way out of my chamber with the special ghost-proof material. After I was sure that everyone was occupied, I went transparent and phased through the door. I learned that I could become invisible from Ghost's lessons, even making the black fur disappear, so I used this to my advantage while searching the halls for my room. Dodging escaped subjects and frantic scientists, I managed to find my friends and I was able to free them.

Together we ran through the halls. As we were in sight of the exit, we saw a horribly diseased zafara running towards us. My heart sunk. We turned around and dashed into the nearest room. We could hear the group people rushing after the poor neopet. Ghost stayed at the door, acting as a lookout, while me and Shadow observed the room. Expanding across the whole back wall was a huge tank full of green-tinted water. Mutated peophins, flotsams, and jetsams swam in the dirty water. Five and six eyes were crowded into the face of some of them. Almost all of them had extra fins and tails. Devilishly huge teeth looked uncomfortable in their mouths. We looked in horror and sadness at these poor creatures that could never know freedom. Ghost called for us and we made the final dash out of the building. My eyes started to tear up as we reached the edge of the clearing. I don't know why, but the others noticed and looked at me surprised. I turned and saw them disappearing into the eerie forest. I glanced back one last time, and ran full force into the dark.

We traveled together. Not having a home or family to go back to, we never stopped moving. We tried to avoid the cities. The first time we went through one was the last. People ran and screamed the second they saw me or ghost. We had tons of police lupes and gelerts on our tails as we were chased from the city, having been marked as dangerous and unknown.

On a cold, rainy day, we ran into another lupe named Keff. His fur was bright red with white flecks on his chest. He was suave and smart. Shadow instantly fell in love, and we decided to settle down in that area so Shadow and Keff could be together. I had no idea what would happen next.

One night, as Ghost and I were out for a walk, we heard a blood curdling scream coming from the dens. We rushed back, not bothering to run around the trees, but instead just floating through them. When we got back, Shadow laid in a pool of deep red blood. Her back had gaping slashes and her eyes were opened in a shocked, glassy gaze. She was already dead. Next to her body sat Keff, looking accomplished as he licked her blood from his lips. This was the first indication we ever had of him being abnormal. His eyes glowed a dull, redish black, like dried blood. With one last look, he fled into the woods. Ghost hurried after him, and I tried to follow. When I finally caught up, Ghost was nowhere to be found. Keff was just sitting in the middle of a clearing. In fear and shock, I turned transparent and ran. I don't know how, but he did something to Ghost.

I returned to the forest, where my friend's lives were ended, a week later. Keff had obviously moved on, so I stayed. I have haunted this part of the forest since then, training, getting stronger, and waiting for Keff to come back. Maybe one day I can finally have my revenge. Ghost never returned, confirming my suspicions about Keff doing something horrible to him. Shadow never turned into a ghost. I ended up burying her in a field of wildflowers just outside the border of the forest.

As you can see, I have the right not to trust strangers. The mistake I made with Keff is a mistake I will never make again.
