|Chadley sat at his desk vigorously typing up notes on his lap top. He was very angry that AAA was back doing the Games Masters Challenge.
Chadley loved doing it and could not believe that just because AAA wanted to go back to doing it, they let him.
"AAA left the competition fair and square." Chadley said in anger. "It should be mine!"
Chadley had to find a way to get AAA kicked out of the games masters challenge. After all, all of Neopia knew that the REAL games master was Chadley.
Chadley had been working for days, formulating the perfect plan that he really thought was going to work. It was all sorted out, there was only one thing that was left to be done...
Date: Apr 30th
... Was to beat AAA at his own games. He would have to beat every score AAA prided himself in. Besides, it's hard to call yourself the 'Game Master' if you aren't the master of any games. But he couldn't do it under his own name, no, he'd have to submit his scores under an alias. Then, when the time was right, he would reveal it was him the whole time!
"BBB?... no, that won't work." Chadley racked his brain trying to come up with a name worthy of his skills. "Super Game Master Better-than-AAA-Supreme?... too long, but it has potential."
After a couple more minutes Chadley shot out of his chair and exclaimed, "I got it!"
He sat down at his desk again, and started furiously typing away at his computer, creating a new gaming account. His eyes now burning with fresh determination, he sat back to admire his new account. "Yeldahc... I like the ring of that."
Now it was time to dethrone and defame his self-appointed adversary. The first step was to grab a list of AAA's top scores in all of his favorite games, and then beat them.
A few minutes on the keyboard, a smoothie, and one large belch later, Chadley was holding a list of AAA's top 25 games (as well as scores to each).
"This is going to be fun", he said, a wicked grin crawling across his face, "Now it's just a matter of deciding which to play first... Hmmm.."
Chadley perused the list, mildly impressed at some of the outlandishly high scores listed before he settled on his first target.
"It looks like the first game will be...
Date: Apr 30th
Truly the perfect plan! The best way to humiliate AAA would be to beat him at the very game he created! Chadley snorted loudly at his own wisdom. Now all he had to do was actually beat the score! Truly a joke for a games master like himself.
Chadley began playing away laughing maniacally while he bashed the keys on his computer. "HA!" he exclaimed. "A score of 25 will surely humiliate AAA!". He looked towards the high score table and frowned slightly. "No, that can't be right.." He checked again to be sure. He felt his blood pressure rising as he looked at AAA's top score of 2000.
"FINE!" he shouted. "I guess it's time that I busted out...the trump card!"
This was of course...
Date: May 1st
...his dazzling smile!
If Chadley couldn't beat AAA's scores, the least he could do is remind himself just how much better liked he was at school. He would beat AAA at a popularity contest!
Closing the games window, Chadley opened up his neomail account and began to type.
This is an open challenge to AAA. he started, knowing full well that his adversary would never back down from something worded as a challenge.
I, the great Yeldahc, will be waiting at the school cafeteria at 12pm tomorrow. There, a neutral party will announce the guidelines for our challenge. Wear your coolest outfit and bring your most dazzling smile. Tomorrow, once and for all, we decide who is most worthy of running the games master challenge. Prepare yourself!
Chadley lent back in his chair, taking a moment to admire his reflection in the laptop screen before he added his entire class to the recipients list. After all, there was no reason to challenge AAA at all if there were no admirers there to see him win.
Now, all he had to do was await AAA's response...
Date: May 2nd
...AAA took a sip of his water while clicking on the neomail icon that flashed on the top left of his screen. He read the latest neomail sent by Yeldahc before dramatically spitting out his water all over his screen.
"What's this dudes problem?" AAA thought to himself, "A...a...smiling contest!? This is truly ridiculous! A true Game Master would never play such a lowly game, but I can never resist a challenge and my ego could use a boost."
AAA simply responded 'I'll be there!' before jumping out of his chair. He started rummaging through his closet pulling out all sorts of fashionable clothing that he's won from past challenges.
"I need something that says, I am AAA the Game Master of Legend." AAA said to himself, "Gah, I can't find anything! But, I know just the person who can help me..."
AAA quickly pulled out his phone and called...
Date: May 3rd
Abigail dropped her Usuki and trotted over to the ringing phone.
"Hello?" she answered.
"Abigail! I need your help!" AAA said, excitedly. "I have a challenge tomorrow for the best smile and--"
"-and you need me to make you not look ugly!" Abigail finished while snickering.
"Hey! Well...actually...wait--never mind that! Are you going to help me or not?"
Abigail looked over to her tea party she was having with her Usuki. "Well...I'm having a private party right now but, I guess it can wait. I'll be at your room, pronto!"
"Great! Bring anything you think will help me!" AAA hung up and wore a confident smirk on his face. Even as the champion of Fashion Fever, his wardrobe consisted of the same red and orange tracksuit he wore everyday. He had no time to go shopping (or even the desire) so he trusted Abigail and her endless costumes to come through. She was his little sister after all and a hoarder of costumes.
"I'm here!" Abigail shouted as she burst into his room with an arms full of clothing.
AAA's face fell at the sight of...
Date: May 3rd
...a t-shirt that was sticking out of the bottom of the pile. He could see the familiar dazzle of white. He snatched the t-shirt out of Abigail's hands and brandished it at her.
"What exactly is this?" he snapped. Abigail's eyes widened as she stared at the t-shirt. She must have picked it up by accident!
"Well, it's not a -bad- shirt, the colour scheme is pretty good."
AAA rolled his eyes. He couldn't turn up to a contest wearing a t-shirt with Chadley's beaming face all over it. He blamed Lulu for the shirt ever being a prize for the GMC.
"I said help me, not humiliate me! Everyone at school is going to be there, I need to look my best."
Suddenly he spotted the exact thing he was looking for.
"That's it!" he exclaimed, pulling at another piece of clothing from the pile. It was perfect. This Yeldahc wasn't going to know what had hit him...
How will this story end...
Date: May 4th
The next day AAA waltzed into the cafeteria, a smug grin on his face, his familiar tracksuit top zipped up over his secret weapon. Abigail entered behind him, carrying a clipboard and pen. Chadley was already waiting for them, looking in a mirror and polishing his teeth. "Ah - AAA... I'm glad you could make it. And Abigail, thank you for agreeing to be our neutral party."
"Of course. I have equal reasons to not want either of you to win - so naturally, I'm the best person for the job. So the rules are, you'll each show me your best smile and I will mark you in several categories. The winner will be declared the best gamer of all time. Chadley, you can go first."
Chadley cleared his throat before turning side-on and pulling his lips into his characteristic dazzling smile. Abigail made some deductive-sounding noises like "Mhmm" and "Ah yes", before turning to AAA. "Okay, your turn."
AAA sneered slightly, before unzipping his tracksuit top to reveal - a T-shirt with a smile printed on the front! Surely nothing could be a more perfect smile than this, if it was good enough to print it on a shirt! Abigail continued her routine of judging while the contestants waited agonisingly for the conclusion...
"Well, the results of the poll are in. There were zero votes for..." She paused for dramatic effect. "AAA!"
"YES!" Chadley exclaimed, throwing his hands into the air in celebration while AAA buried his face in his hands and groaned, defeated. "I hereby claim my-"
"Not so fast," said Abigail smugly. "And there were zero votes for Chadley."
"Huh? So who won?" demanded Chadley.
"I did," said Abigail, smiling sweetly. "All members of the poll voted me as the winner of the best smile. I hereby claim my title as best super best gamer of all time."
AAA and Chadley glanced sidelong at each other in a calculated manner. AAA was the first to break the silence. "Stupid contest anyway."
"Yeah, doesn't mean a thing," Chadley agreed immediately. "Call it a draw?"
"Yeah, a draw," nodded AAA.
Well, Abigail's plan had worked after all - she'd finally gotten them to agree on something! "Well... thank goodness for that," she sighed.
