"You shouldn't be here," the voice snarled.
"Who are you exactly?" Sabre-X said sternly. He was tired of this game of cat and mouse and wanted answers.
"I guess you could call me...Hope," the voice replied.
"Fine, Hope," Sabre-X started again, "What in Fyora's name is going on here? This can't be real! Where are we?!"
Hope lowered his head solemnly as if remembering a very painful memory. When he looked back up his eyes met the Lupe's and they exchanged motionless glances, each wary of the other. It was then that Hope's mouth curled into a wicked smile.
"Actually this works out perfectly," he chimed.
"What does?" Sabre-X asked suspiciously.
"I am the manifestation of childlike wonder. I am the hopes and dreams of children everywhere that Jelly World is real and there is a grand adventure waiting for each and every one of them," Hope said plainly.
"I don't understand," Sabre-X responded.
"You don't need to. As long as you spread the word of this fortunate mishap you will serve my purposes just fine," Hope said slyly. With the snap of a finger, he teleported next to Sabre-X and pushed him into a newly formed portal behind him.
"So long, Tyrannian," Hope waved as Sabre-X began to fall, "Don't forget about our little encounter!" With those last words the portal closed and Sabre-X was gone.
Sabre-X awakened to the clamouring of many different voices. He had a headache and tried his best to focus. He sat up suddenly, remembering the omelette being replaced with a giant blob of jelly.
"The omelette!" he cried as he rose to his feet. It was then that an approaching Kacheek appeared beside him, there for his daily fixings.
"What do you mean?" asked the Kacheek, "The omelette is just fine."
Sabre-X took a good look at the plateau and indeed it was true. The omelette was safe and sound, as if nothing had happened.
"Are you ok?" the Kacheek asked, concerned.
"Y-yeah," said Sabre-X gathering his composure. "I had the strangest dream though."
"Oh, do tell!" said the Kacheek excitedly.
Sabre-X and the Kacheek walked together as Sabre-X told him all about his recent unbelievable dream and what he thought it meant.
It was then that Hope grinned to himself slyly. He knew there would come another day where he would need to return to Neopia and remind everybody of the world that never was.
