|Kendra opened her eyes to the sounds of birds twittering outside her window. Sunlight streamed through her partially closed curtains, hinting at a beautiful day beyond the windows. She stretched her forelegs and clambered out of bed.
"The first day of Fall in Brightvale!" She said to herself, as she doused her wings in a healthy dose of Eyrie Feather Spray. Fall was her favorite season; the foliage surrounding the land of Brightvale was beautiful this time of year, and she loved the feel of crisp leaves under her paws.
Once she was groomed and ready for the day, Kendra ran excitedly to the door. She had been planning for this day for weeks; she had a day of apple-picking, raking, and cider-making ahead of her. Taking a deep breath, Kendra threw open her front door, and made it two steps outside before she gasped in astonishment...
Date: Sep 24th
Directly in front of her door was a huge Jelly. It was green and wiggling, and nearly seems alive with shimmery gooey-ness. It was taking up nearly her whole front yard, walkway and doorstep.
A Jelly in Brightvale?! Kendra rubbed her eyes and was tempted to pinch herself, but the Eyerie cawing somewhere told her it wasn't a dream. The wind was warm and ruffling her bangs.
How did it get there? Did Grundo visitors leave it as a sign? Did it transport here? Was it a gift!? She would have settled for flowers, if she had a secret admirer.
She hadn't quite figured out to do, now when something else happened.

Now everything else was jelly, too - the trees: their branches, leaves, trunk; the grass: every blade, every inch of it; the houses: the chimneys, the roofs, even the doormats; and also, Kendra was quite shocked to see, the clouds up above.
They were the most tantalizingly jellyish of all . . . the fluffy nimbus right up above especially, which looked so squiggly and blobby that she just had to reach up and have a bite.
Kendra stood on tiptoe, trying in vain to reach up at the cloud, when she noticed that the tips of her fingers had started tingling . . .
. . . she could see her nails beginning to turn into the telltale shade of green jelly.

Kendra pulled her hand back quickly. But her nails were already green. From an angle the reflection from the sun made it look like proper jelly.
She walked around her house and saw many Neopets jumping up and down. Many of them were completely jelly, especially the Blumaroos. After a few steps, Kendra noticed that her steps were not simple steps. Rather they were small hops that took her much higher than she could actually jump.
After some time she came to the edge of the Rainbow Pool. When she looked at her reflection, she could not recognize her face.
She had to squint to see her eyes that were small dark-blue jelly dots. She looked at her stomach and legs and found that she had become completely jelly too.
How on Neopia will Kendra find the cure to un-jellify Brightvale?
