A Day in the Life of an Average Neopian
I woke up with a start. 2002bouncy2002 (I call her Bouncy) was bouncing up
and down on my chest, and it was rather painful. I checked my alarm clock, and
it showed 5:29. With a sudden, loud ring, it changed to 5:30, and that is where
I began my day.
I sat up, and pulled on some clothes. Then we went downstairs into 02beauty02's
bedroom, to wake her up. Bouncy is the only one allowed on the second floor.
It's my personal floor. Well, she's meant to be the only one. She has her private
bedroom, and a spare room for guests. One night I caught Bouncy in her room,
and Cutey fast asleep in the spare. I didn't say anything, though. I think I
might let her up as well, but I still want it to be private.
Anyway, we could immediately tell that we were in Beauty's bedroom; clothes
were scattered along the whole room, slung over the backs of chairs, and squeezed
into her six wardrobes. I sighed--Beauty always took forever to get up. I gave
her a gentle shake, and whispered "Beauty", but nothing happened. I shook her
harder, and said it again, louder. Nothing. I shook her hard, called "Beauty"
at the top of my voice, but she merely rolled over and went on sleeping.
"Try to wake her up!" I told Bouncy, and I walked into 2002KiKi2002's bedroom,
which was completely different. Walking over to her bed, the clothes I stepped
over to get to Beauty's bed were replaced by assorted Battledome items, codestones,
and KiKi's collection of battle cards. When I got to her bed, I poked KiKi in
the shoulder and she instantly sprang into action, leaping out of bed, shouted
good morning, and dashing into Beauty's bedroom to help wake her up.
Then I woke up 2002cutey2002. Her bedroom was different again. She had posters
all over the walls of Usuki dolls, like Beauty's faerie posters and KiKi's Battledome
advertisements. Bouncy had posters too; they were of all the concerts I took
her to. Cutey also had loads of shelves, coating all the walls. On them were
all her Usuki dolls. One had fallen off, but I didn't bother to put it back.
"Cutey!" I called, whilst I shook her gently. She sat up, yawned, and picked
up the Tyrannian Usuki doll which had fallen off the shelf.
We walked back to Beauty's bedroom, where complete chaos met our eyes. Bouncy
was jumping on her bed, KiKi was smashing her with her pillow, and both were
shouting at the tops of their voices. Suddenly Beauty sat up, and pushed them
off. "Did I sleep in again?" She asked, and we all cracked up laughing.
We all went into the bathroom, and I ran a warm bath whilst they brushed their
teeth. I took their orders for breakfast, and left them to chat in the bath
tub whilst I made breakfast.
Once I got into the kitchen, I pulled open the fridge door and began preparing
breakfast. "A diet Neocola for Beauty, a normal Neocola for KiKi, a chocolate
milk for Cutey, and, erm, what was it?" I muttered to myself, pulling the drinks
out of the fridge. "Oh, yeah. A grapity slushie for Bouncy." I recited, and
pulled out some bacon, eggs, and sausages. Then I started to put it all out
on the zen table, when shrieks and screams echoed from the bathroom.
"What happened?" I called, as I ran through the entrance corridor to the bathroom.
It became obvious as soon as I opened the door--Bouncy was using her tail to
make waves at the others, whilst KiKi laughed, Cutey giggled, and Beauty protested
wildly. "Silly!" I said to Bouncy, as I ruffled her fur. I tried my hardest
to scold her, but her big blue eyes got the better of me. They went to get dressed,
and I went into Bouncy's room to help her with Angelicuss, her Robot Angelpuss,
who had woken up and was destroying the bedroom.
Angelicuss was leaping around the room, and Damned From Birth, a Halloween
Puppyblew, was scribbling on the walls with Cutey's official Usuki pens. I took
a bite out of the colourful wall, which instantly grew back--being made of chocolate
was a big perk!
Cutey came in, half dressed, looking for her pens. She complained the pen
lids were squashed, and five minutes later I had Official Usuki Pens added to
my shopping list.
OK, I'm going on about all this like it's been all day, but seriously, keep reading.
A little pet intro before I continue? Okay then.
2002bouncy2002 is my favourite pet, but don't tell the others that. I plan
to paint her fire, so any offers for paint brushes would be appreciated :-)
!!! She is currently a yellow Meerca with rather bad stats, but a great personality!
She wasn't my first pet or anything, I just think she's adorable!!!
2002cutey2002 is my second favourite. She is a yellow Usul who I plan to
paint Striped one day. Unfortunately she has rather bad stats too, but it can't
2002KiKi2002 is my third favourite. I like her sporty attitude, and would
rather like to paint her Faerie, so offers would be nice. She has bad stats
too, but she's really, really sporty and flying would be another great sport
to add to her list. If I can find a paint brush, though.
Finally, 02Beauty02 is my fourth favourite, and don't EVER call her my
worst. I hate having to wake her up, and she goes on MEGA diets a lot. I'd like
to paint her Rainbow, so offers. I really need loads of paint brushes!!! Beauty
loves clothes and make-up, and she is a really nice pet.
OK, now you know the main characters, on to me…
My name is 2002cec2002 and I love playing Neopets!!! I have four wonderful
pets and I enjoy Meerca Chase, Go! Go! Go! and Cheat! I also play Pyramids and
Scarab 21 a lot, and my brother and Mum LOVE to play Destruct-O-Match. I like
to make friends, so Neofriend offers will nearly always be accepted!!!
Back to the story...
I went back to the kitchen, and prepared breakfast. I set the table, and put
a huge plate of sausages, baked beans, eggs and bacon on the table, ready to
be eaten. I then pulled out an Ice Creamy Jelly Smoothie and an extra plate
for me. Right on cue, the others came in for breakfast, and we all sat down
and tucked in happily, whilst I figured out what to do that day.
"So what do you lot want to do today?" I asked them all, and they all chewed
thoughtfully whilst they thought. I cleared away the plates, and they all chewed
on fruit from the bowl whilst they told me.
"I want to go to the beauty parlour, and then go get some new clothes, and
then hang out with the Uni who runs the clothes store, and then go to Usukiland,
and THEN go to Faerieland and talk to some of the faeries!!!" Said Beauty, all
in one breath. I sighed, and asked KiKi.
"I want to go to the battle item shop, then go to Mystery Island and train
all day, then go to Terror Mountain and cool off!!!" Said KiKi excitedly. I
thought for a minute, then asked Cutey.
"I want to go to Usukiland and buy a new doll and some new pens, then talk
to the owner of the store, then go chat to the beauty parlour owner and get
a new red lipstick, then get a slushie, and then go to Tyrannia and explore!!!"
Said Cutey. I thought all this over, then asked Bouncy.
"I'd like to go to the shops, ALL of them, then go and play some games, then
go to the Lost Desert and explore, then go to Terror Mountain for a slushie,
then go to Faerieland and chat to the faeries!!!" she said. I thought all their
ideas over, then smiled.
"OK. We'll do the main shops, then we split up. KiKi goes to Mystery Island,
Beauty can go to Terror Mountain, Cutey can go to Tyrannia and Bouncy can stick
with me. We'll meet up at Faerieland at about six and come back for lunch. Then,
we'll all go out to the market and find Beauty some new clothes, KiKi a codestone
or two, and possibly some battle items, Cutey some Usuki dolls and stuff, and
Bouncy some toys and fuzzles. Plus, I was thinking, if we have enough money,
we could go to the PetPet puddle and look at all the PetPets in the cages, and
we might get you two some PetPets, and finally we'll come back for dinner."
I told them, and they all squealed with excitement. I handed them all some grapes,
and they ran to their rooms to get their leftover allowance from last week.
I gave them all this week's allowance, and we walked down to the shops.
We all skipped along, and I checked the time. It was 6:30. We went to the
explore store, and caught a boat off to Terror Mountain. When we arrived we
walked up to the ice caves, where we went to the Snowager's cave. I tiptoed
in, grabbed a purple negg, and dashed out with it. We all cheered, and I put
it in my backpack for later.
Once we were back on dry land, I bought them each a new collar and we all
split up to go to different shops. We met up next to the food shop, and I got
some chocolate milk and some cheese and onion crisps for us to snack on.
We went back to the Explore Store, and I booked all our boats/planes. Bouncy
and I waved goodbye to each of them in turn, before turning back and walking
off to the games room.
The games room was one of Bouncy's favourite places. She loves to help me
play Cheat! and enjoys playing Go! Go! Go! with me.
We went to the Meerca Chase stall. I put in my card, typed in my details and
soon was fiddling around with the controls. Bouncy was really excited and jumped
up and down behind me. Suddenly I crashed into a red negg, and selected the
send score button. Bouncy was ready for it, but even so she jumped when Neopoints
came pouring out of the machine. We both laughed, and I played it a second and
third time, whilst we joked and had fun. I added up all our Neopoints, and we
had nearly 10000 altogether!!! We ran down to the Cheat! table, and were soon
playing the final round. "Four Kings" said Spectre. "CHEAT!!!" I shouted, as
I had two kings. He turned over the cards, and they were a queen, a five and
two tens. Bouncy and I laughed, and continued to play until we had over 15000
Then we decided to go to the shops, and we bought loads of cool stuff, and
then we went to the Explore Store and got on a flight to Tyrannia.
It was early in the morning still, so we bought a concert ticket. "OH WOW!!!"
screamed Bouncy, and showed me a purple Faerie in a bottle. "It's soooo gorgeous!!!"
she squealed, and I put it in my backpack.
We entered the concert hall, and I laughed because Blue Kacheek Group were
playing, and it was both mine and Bouncy's favourite band. "You're the best
owner in the world!" said Bouncy, when we got outside. I grabbed some omelette
and we chewed happily whilst we played Go! Go! Go! We skipped along to the wheel
of mediocrity, where we won 100 Neopoints. "Cool!" said Bouncy, watching several
buzzes flying by singing one of the Blue Kacheek Group's songs.
We caught a flight to Faerieland, and did loads of jobs until we had a blue
job coupon and 20000 Neopoints. Then we went to the wheel of excitement, and
won 500 Neopoints. As I was in a good mood, we went to the Faerieland Book Store
and I bought her a new book, which I instantly read to her as she was getting
We hung around at all the different places in Faerieland, until it was six.
Then we chatted to the water faerie whilst several different planes appeared,
and soon all four of us were nibbling on Fruity Faerie Fingers whilst we talked.
We caught the plane back to Neopia Central, and went home.
"I bought some brand new Usuki Pens, plus a fantastic new Snowy Valley Usuki
Set and loads of cool food!" said Cutey.
"Check out my new scarf!" said Beauty, pulling a beautiful new scarf out of
a bag, "and I got this great gold lipstick, plus a fantastic new pink blush!"
she held out the new make-up.
"I trained LOADS, then I got a slushie and I went to the garage sale and chatted
to the Chias. Then I went to the shops and got a fantastic new Main Codestone
for only 1000 Neopoints!!!" squealed KiKi excitedly.
"Well, we went to the games room and played loads of games and then we went
to the concert and had omelette and then we went to Faerieland and had fun!"
We were nearly home when KiKi stopped. "I think there's something in that
bush" she said. I looked, and suddenly a Faerie Queen rolled out of it. Bouncy
grabbed it, and we all cheered. "I can't believe we got two faeries in one day!"
I said, and Bouncy explained how we found the Dark Faerie in Tyrannia.
"Cool!" they all said, and I unlocked the front door.
Instantly they all leapt in, and I began making lunch whilst they played in
their rooms. Lunch was our purple negg with loads of different puddings, like
apple pies and ice creams and all sorts of cakes and chocolates. We had the
drinks we'd had that morning, except Cutey who had a Caffeine Free Neocola
I'd just finished clearing the plates when Beauty and KiKi leapt up, and started
chatting about PetPets. I got the hint, and five minutes later we were all skipping
off to the PetPet Puddle.
KiKi liked the Moltenore, but Beauty wanted one of the spooky PetPets she
saw people with. "Let's go to the Shop Wizard, mum!" said KiKi, desperate to
get a Moltenore.
Disaster struck. The Shop Wizard couldn't find any Moltenores for less than
100,000. KiKi nearly cried, so we went to one of the stalls to see if they would
go any cheaper.
We got to the stall, and instantly saw all sorts of PetPets in cages around
the shop. Their ears pricked, so we went inside.
Instantly Beauty ran to a row of Spooky PetPets, whilst I chatted to the store
owner, and Bouncy, Cutey, Angelicuss and Damned From Birth looked at the PetPet
Beauty squealed, so I went to look at what she was watching. The cage she
was looking at contained a Baby Vampire curled up in the corner. She stared
at it, and I checked the price. It was only 2,000 Neopoints! I grabbed the cage
and put it next to the till, ready to pay for it. KiKi screamed when she saw
it, but she had an Abominable Snowball in a cage with her so she didn't really
mind. I checked the price, and bought them both. They came to a total of only
2,999 Neopoints! I'd paid nearly twice that for Angelicuss! All in a good mood,
we walked home for dinner.
For dinner I prepared some of the Faerie Food we had bought earlier. Beauty
had Fruity Faerie Fingers, KiKi went for Fluffy Faerie Pancakes, Cutey decided
on Flaming Fire Faerie Pizza, Bouncy had some Fiery Faerie Chicken Nuggets and
I had a Bacon Belly Buster. I decided to treat everyone, and I squeezed the
juice out of the leftovers of the purple negg, so we drank that. It tasted delicious,
and we all had purple stains running down our chins after about three sips!
(Hey, you try drinking freshly squeezed negg juice without looking like Beauty's
new Baby Vampire!)
We had donuts and pudding, and afterwards we play-fought with KiKi's old
battle items, dressed up in Beauty's clothes, played dolls with Cutey's Usuki
Dolls and played games with Bouncy's fuzzles. At about ten o'clock I tucked
them in and read them each a bedtime story, before sneaking upstairs to relax
on my zen bed.
Author's Note: This story is exactly what happened one day, though it may sound
made up. I hope you enjoyed it, as it took me three days to write it!!!
