First Time Zapped

by bubble_babby312

Cuteouni the Island Uni came skidding around the corner into the Silver Lounge, with Ooockoo close on her tail.

     "I'm gonna get you!!!" yelled the little skunk Kacheek.

     "Hey, it's not like I meant to crush your flowers!" said the Uni.

     I was in the kitchen when I heard them fighting.

     "Hey, you two, break it up," I said as I came into the Lounge. It was a beautiful room, full of stone furniture. It was also the first room that we had built on Floor 1. Ooockoo stopped chasing Cuteouni and came up to me. Cuteouni stopped running and turned around, curious.

     "I was just sitting in my garden, minding my own business, when Cuteouni comes along and steps on my Rowzez!" said Ooockoo, trying to explain what had happened, "And they were the ones that Dulah gave me for Valentines Day too!"

     "Well, she could have told me that they were there. I couldn't see them ... way down on the ground ..." Cuteouni's voice trailed off.

     "Cuteouni. You know that all flowers are down on the ground! And what were you doing in Ooockoo's garden anyway?" I asked.

     "I, um, I... don't know," she said quietly, "I guess I was just bored, wandering around to find something to do."

     Emmeraldo the Lupe walked into the room. "Hey, everyone what's up? Bubble we have to get going. Ooockoo! What's wrong?" She was crying now.

     "Cuteouni... crushed the flowers that Dulah gave me... for Valentines Day," she said haltingly.

     "Aww, Cuteouni! Why would you do that?"

     "It was an accident!"

     "Oh."

     "Okay, Ooockoo please stop crying. Dulah will buy you more flowers, I'm sure. And Cuteouni, apologize," I said.

     "Sorry."

     "All right, that's better. Now everyone can come into the kitchen, I made some sandwiches."

     All three of them came into the kitchen and sat down. Emmeraldo grabbed a sandwich and then got up again.

     "Come on Bubble, we have to go. I can't wait!" he reminded me.

     "Right, right, will you two be all right on your own for a while?"

     Cuteouni and Ooockoo nodded. "And Bobblefeet is downstairs if you need anything," I added.

     "Let's go!" said Emmeraldo.

     "I'm coming, just let me get my shoes on!"

     We were going to the Secret Laboratory. I had just finished collecting all nine of the map pieces and we were going to follow them, to get to the Lab. This was going to be Emmeraldo's first time being zapped.

     "Okay, we'll be back later. Stay out of trouble!"

     "Bye!"

     We walked down Main Street until we reached the main part of the city. I cannot reveal the path we took from there, because then you would know the whereabouts of the Lab.

     We finally got there, and got into line. Ahead of us was an electric Blumaroo and its owner.

     "I really hope that I don't change species or color again today! I really like being a Blumaroo," said the Blumaroo.

     "I like it too, but there's nothing we can do if the Ray changes you, Furgimoo," his owner replied.

     A young ghost Aisha was walking back towards the exit, crying.

     "Wahh-haaaah!! I hate being a ghost!" cried the Aisha.

     Emmeraldo was starting to look very nervous.

     "Bubble, what if the Ray changes me into a... a Buzz? That would be SO terrible! Or a Skeith. I'm not so sure about this anymore..." Emmeraldo said.

     "Emm! I spent more than 95,000 NP to find this place because YOU wanted to get zapped everyday. Remember? You're not turning back now unless you can pay me back 95k," I told him.

     "Oh all right. But..."

     "No buts."

     "Fine. But it's..."

     "No buts!"

     Emmeraldo glared at me, and then realized that we were almost to the front of the line. He looked up at me again, and whimpered. The Blumaroo in front of him went up to the Ray.

     It was massive! Emmeraldo was amazed. The Blumaroo went up and sat in a chair underneath the Ray, while its owner stood by and watched. ZZZAAAPP!!! Sitting in the chair, was an... electric Blumaroo! The scientist looked at a little screen and said, "Furgimoo's strength was raised 2 points!"

     "Phew! I didn't change species or color... or gender," he shuddered.

     "Congratulations, Furgimoo!" said his owner.

     "Okay, you're up!" said the scientist, to Emmeraldo, "Now, your new here aren't you? Here, just sign this waver and we can get started."

     He handed him a clipboard with a piece of paper attached to it.

     'I, the mad scientist, who created this Laboratory, and the Ray within it, cannot be held responsible for any species, color, gender, stat, or level changes. Sign: _____'

     "That just means that you can't sue me if you don't turn out the way you want when you use the Ray," the scientist explained.

     "Okay," said Emmeraldo quietly.

     "Now sit down in that chair," he said and then turned to me, "You, miss, might want to stand a bit farther away."

     The scientist started up the machine. Suddenly, ZZZAAAPP!!! The scientist giggled madly, "Hee, hee, hee!" He checked the screen.

     "Emmeraldo has changed color to Robot!" proclaimed the scientist.

     "Ah!!" I yelled.

     "COOL!" said Emmeraldo, "This is so awesome!"

     "Um... okay ..." I stuttered, "Whatever. Let's just go home."

     So we did.

The End

Author's Note: Emmeraldo really was turned to Robot, but I am not sure if it was really on the first time. Also, Furgimoo is a completely fictional character. Emmeraldo is a Robot Lupe by the way. =) Hope you liked my story, and I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!
