The Thingamajig

by ticketytock2kay

I used to be a perfectly normal blue Aisha, thank you very much. I remember the days when I used to come home after training, plop down on the couch and... well, never mind. It doesn't matter anymore, because now I live a painful, hard life.

Well, anyway, it was a normal day. It started out as a normal day, I think. Let me see: I had some neocola and hot cakes for breakfast, then headed onto Mystery Island for my daily training.

After successfully slicing five bad seeds in half without getting bitten, and earning two defence points, I went home. Opening the fridge, I remember I saw three bunches of bananas, five strawberry milkshakes and a loaf of bread and a packet of Cheesy Neos. I grabbed the bag of Cheesy Neos and a strawberry milkshake and went to the living room.

It was then that I saw that thing on the table! It was a potion bottle with a cork, the kind of bottle you would find in Kauvara's magic shop. I knew all of the potions by heart: the Shoyru potions had wings, the Kacheek potions had the colour of the Kacheek's belly, the Meerca Potions had a tail... but never mind that. This potion was orange, and bubbling, and even though the bottle was corked, a distinct smell of rotten juppie and old, stale neodrops could be smelt coming out of it.

You probably think my first reaction was, "Eeww! Disgusting! Throw it away! Dispose of it! Report it as a health hazard!" Sadly, it wasn't! The first thoughts that filled my mind were, "What is that thing? Taste it! See what happens!"

And that's exactly what I did! I went over and uncorked the bottle, making it go POP very loudly. I took a spoon from the medicine cabinet and poured out a spoonful of the gooey stuff.

Then, I gulped it down.

It didn't taste that bad. Actually, it tasted like strawberry milkshake.

No, it didn't. I drank the potion with my milkshake, and that's why it tasted like Strawb... oh, forget it.

Anyway, the moment I drank it, I rushed upstairs to the bathroom and just what do you suppose I had become? A Faerie Usul! And I'm a boy! Just think of that! My friends and siblings would laugh their heads of when they saw me. Guess what? This is probably the worst part of all - I had make-up, plastered all over my face! Disgusted, I tried washing it off, but it was permanent. Oh, no! I hope I wasn't going to be stuck this way forever!

I don't have anything against Usuls, mind you! It's just that I would a thousand times rather be a plain old blue Aisha than a beautiful, girly Faerie Usul!

Why do you suppose I live a hard, painful life? It's because my friends laugh at me everyday and jostle me around, saying, "So, girly-boy!" My owner dresses me up for the Beauty Contest! I don't mind the Beauty Contest too much. I always come back with a trophy and some Neopoints.

Anyway, that's my life! Laugh if you please. I just wanna come back home with a golden quill instead of a "Best Dressed" trophy! See you around!

The End

P.S. Try and spot me in the Beauty Contests sometime!
