Too Weird to Be Funny

by ratlom

It was a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon. Ratlom, Xoragrag, and Ezzub were shopping. Xo was playing with a Yo-yo, Ezzub was listening to his favourite Yes Boy Ice-cream CD, and Ratlom was reading the new issue of Neopian Times. Their first stop was the PetPet store. They stood at the door.

"Guys, are there any PetPets you would like?" asked Ratlom.

"Well, I think White Noils are cool," said Xo.

"How 'bout you, Ezzub?" asked Ratlom.

"I'm not sure. I may want to get a Krawk," said Ezzub.

"A Krawk?! I can't afford one of those!" said Ratlom.

"And that's good. I saw one bite Steve Irwin from 'The Crocodile Hunter' last Monday on TV. They sure are scary," said Xo.

"All right. Anyway, I just came here to get me some Codestones," said Ezzub.

"Okay, Ezzub. Here's some NP. Get yourself the Codestones you need. But don't buy anything else," said Ratlom.

Ezzub got the money and ran toward the Codestone Shop. Xo and Ratlom went inside the PetPet Store.

"Welcome to the PetPet Shop! How may I help you?" asked the Usul.

"How much are the White Noils?" asked Ratlom.

"White Noils? Let me check, sir," said Usul.

She typed some stuff in the computer. It made a ringing noise a few seconds later.

"Ah, here we go," she said.

She got closer to the computer screen.

"Well, the cheapest one I see is 75,000 NP, sir," she said.

"75,000 NP?! That's too much for a PetPet!" said Ratlom.

"Well, sir, some people do collect every PetPet. Even if it costs more than their budget," she said.

"You're right. Xo, are you sure you want a White Noil?"

"What? White Noil? Of course not! I hate White Noils!" said Xo.

"But... but you just said you wanted one!" said Ratlom.

"I did? Weird. Cause I hate White Noils!" said Xo.

"Ooookay. Is there anything else I can interest you in?" asked Usul.

"No, thanks. Let's go, Ratlom! C'mon!" said Xo.

Xo pulled Ratlom by the arm and ran toward the Toy Store.

"Yay! Toy Store! My favourite store! Let's go in!" said Xo.

"Uh, Xo, it's closed," said Ratlom.

Xo sighed.

"That stinks. Why is it closed?" asked Xo.

Ratlom shrugged. Then they heard a bump.

"What was that?" asked Xo.

"I don't know. Let's go find out," said Ratlom.

They ran toward the noise, and they saw where it came from. It was Ezzub, getting bullied by two large NeoPets.

"What do you want from me?" asked Ezzub.

"Give us those Codestones!" said the big Chia.

"Yeah! And give us the Scratchcard you bought, too!" said the Techo.

Ratlom and Xo ran and stood next to Ezzub.

"Ezzub, I thought I told you only to buy the Codestones. You don't need a Scratchcard," said Ratlom.

"Ratlom, please, I'll ask you to forgive me later. I'm in trouble right now," said Ezzub.

"What trouble? These two loons scare you? Hah! How funny! Ezzub, did you forget what Battledome items I bought you?" said Ratlom.

"Battledome items? Oh yeah! How could I forget those!" said Ezzub.

Ezzub pulled out a Buzz Blaster and a Grand Lightning Beam.

"HAHA! Take that!" said Ezzub.

A bolt of lightning and a row of fire burst out of the BD items.

"Aaaaahhhh! Run for it!" said the Techo.

They both ran away. Ratlom and Xo gave a huge sigh.

"Wow, that was exhausting," said Ratlom.

"What was? My battle with the loons?" asked Ezzub.

"No, no, Ezzub. The whole day was. First, the catastrophe with Xo's PetPet decision."

Xo blushed. "I guess I should've made a better decision," he said.

"Secondly, you getting bullied," said Ratlom.

Ezzub smiled. "Well, I did act like a hero and defeated the minions. I deserve a trophy just for that. My act was very heroic," he said.

"Yeah, right. Okay, guys, let's go home now. I'm really tired. We'll decide what to do tomorrow," said Ratlom.

"Okay, let's go," said Xo.

"Wait a minute! WAIT A MINUTE!? Where's my CD Player! Argh! It can't be! Those bullies took my CD Player! Argh! I'LL CATCH YOU!" screamed Ezzub.

Ezzub started running in the bullies' direction.

Ratlom and Xo sighed.

"It's always these times I wish I was a Faerie; I could fly after him instead of running," said Ratlom.

And they started running after him.
