The Wheel of Excitement's Downside: Disease

by chilifry

Another wonderful day in Neopia.... SaharaSam, my Christmas Kougra, was joining me that day while her siblings, Kolora_2001, a blue Acara, Sydriia, a red Gelert, and Amialika, a red Mynci, stayed home for the day to plant a new garden for spring.

All day, SaharaSam always talked about how much she heard of the Wheel of Excitement from other NeoPets and how she longed to go there someday. I thought to myself, Why don't I take SaharaSam to the Wheel today? She's wanted to so much.

SaharaSam asked where we were going as we walked (or should I say, flew), to Faerieland. Finally, we arrived at the wheel. SaharaSam stared at it with awe, the mesmerising faeries spinning that oh-so colourful wheel. Sahara told me, "This looks like fun!" And smiled the biggest grin.

We stepped up for our turn, wondering what we'll get... 10,000 NP? 2,000? Mystery prize? As the wheel began to turn, I noticed the "prize" with a skull on it... disease. I had completely forgotten about it as my other pets had never landed on that. I shrugged my shoulders and thought nothing of it since I've never received that prize before.

The wheel began to come to a stop, and the clicking began to decease. I opened my eyes and there was the skull. I turned to Sahara, and to my horror she looked awful! Red bumps began to sprout on her, her eyes looked droopy and she looked disoriented and swollen! I rushed her to the Neopian hospital and continued to blame myself as I looked at my beloved pet suffering. I brought her to Emergency and the Elephante told me, "SaharaSam has the Itchy Scratchies, a disease where red bumps emerge. It can be cured easily if you buy the Itchy Scratchy Cream. See if the Pharmacy has any in stock."

With tears in my eyes, I phoned home and told my other pets, that SaharaSam was sick. They all cried and stopped planting and met me at the pharmacy where I had no luck in finding the cream Sahara so needed. Amialika, tugged at my pant leg and said, "Why don't you try the Shop Wizard?" Of course! The wonderful Shop Wizard! With his help, I found the cream and cured Sahara.

After my experience, I wanted to help others if this should ever happen to them.

1. Do not panic. Your pet will feel reassured if you do not panic.

2. Look at the symptoms your pet is having and if needed give some essentials before departing for the hospital (e.g. Dehydration, give water. Shivers, put on clothing).

3. Take your pet to the hospital and diagnose it, and find out how to cure it.

4. Call your other pets if you have any and explain the situation.

5. Take your pet to the pharmacy, if the medicine they need is not there, use the Shop Wizard.

6. DO NOT BLAME YOURSELVES. It was not your fault, you just wanted to give your pet a good time, but of course, everything has its risks.

7. If possible do not bring this pet back to the Wheel as it is very traumatising for them. Sahara does not want to go there anymore, unfortunately. I bring my other pets that share their prize with her.

I hope this helped you if you and your pet ever receive the downside of the Wheel, disease. Thank you.
