"An Unexpected Birthday Surprise " by saqo
There wasn’t anyone here. Okay, let me rephrase that – I was here. Only me. On my birthday. I’m a Kacheek who works at a shop in Neopia Central. I restock shelves, help other Neopet customers, and keep the shop clean. I work really hard, and I enjoy interacting with fellow Neopets and their owners. It’s a fun job! I had worked in that shop for long enough that I became rather close with my coworkers. A Uni, Bori, and Jetsam, were fun and friendly Neopets. They helped me when I needed it at work, and I tried to be supportive of them as well. Sure, we didn’t hang out much outside of work, but what better time to start than now? So, five days before my birthday, I invited them to a party at my Neohome. I smiled and enthusiastically told them there would be cake, other snacks, and birthday games. They agreed to come! I spent the next few days smiling most of the time I was awake. You see, I’m a bit of a shy Kacheek by nature, but I was proud of myself for inviting them to my home.
