"Harker's Story" by tanikagillam
So. You want to know how this story began. Of course you do. I’d want to know too, if I were sitting on your side of the table. Of course – there aren’t really two sides of the table. We’re on the same side, you and I. The table is just a metaphor for our positions. I mean yes, we are sitting at a literal table. Me on this side, you on the other. In a rather uncomfortable chair, might I add. But it’s what that table stands for that matters, wouldn’t you agree? Oh, yes, alright. I’ll start at the beginning. Although, actually – I might skip forward a little, if that’s okay with you. You see, there are a lot of details involved – and they aren’t all relevant. For example, the true beginning of any story which incurs my involvement would include my birth and the subsequent twenty-something years thereafter. I say twenty-something and not a specific number simply because I’d like to maintain some air of mystery (and perhaps dignity), even as you’re pulling up my file on your database. Naturally, my birth itself is irrelevant in relation to tonight’s events on the whole, excluding the events that led up to me being in that alleyway in the first place. Perhaps that’s where I ought to start this story – with the alleyway. It’s fitting, because that’s where you come into the story, sir. Do you recall the first time you met me in that alleyway? Of course only the one crime had been committed at that time, and we met purely by accidental chance. That was last night. You know most of what happened that night – I assume that’s why you were in that alleyway in the first place. Alright then, Defender, I’ll tell you my story. But remember – we’re on the same side here. Can you loosen these handcuffs a little, please? I’m cramping slightly. Thank you.

But I'm Just a Grape
I’m sharing this story because I think that there are probably plenty of Neopets out there, or even their owners, who experience something similar.
