Quickly I glanced at the time. It had seemed like all
day I had been waiting for Jeltei to pick the perfect petpet.
"Jeltei hurry!" I exclaimed, throwing my paws
into the air.
"Yirvee Calm down," Jeltei said picking up a
little box. "I picked out theee perfect petpet and its right inside this box."
He tapped the box softly and grinned as we walked out of the petpet shop.
"Why'd you take so long?" I asked, starting
to walk home.
"Choosing a perfect petpet requires a lot of
time," Jeltei said, rubbing the cardboard box. "Anyway, Geoff said I could
take my time."
"He also said be back by dinner," I said,
pointing at the setting sun. Swiftly I ran along the sidewalk wishing I hadn't
agreed to bring Jeltei to the marketplace. He was so immature and childish.
"Yirvee wait up!" Jeltei yelled flapping his
tiny Eyrie wings. He hovered over the sidewalk but hit a lamppost and plopped
onto the ground.
I giggled, trying to not let him hear.
"I hope you bought a Cirrus," I said heartily,
"so he could teach you how to fly." I giggled some more. And sat down on a nearby
bench waiting for Jeltei to come.
"Owww..." Jeltei grumbled as he got on his paws.
"Hey where's my box!?" Jeltei exclaimed looking around.
"I don't know, your the one who was carrying
it," I answered. I got off the bench and searched for the small cardboard box.
"Uhhh, I just hate it when petpets are lost." I searched furiously where Jeltei
had been last.
"Where could it have gone?" Jeltei sorrowed,
"My cute little Harris."
I eyed Jeltei.
"You--you got a Harris?" I inquired. "I never
knew you liked those things. You know they are highly allergic to a lot of things."
"What are they allergic too? My little Harris
could be having an allergic reaction right now!" Jeltei said trying to keep
himself from crying.
I took off my backpack and got out my 'Harris
"Oops, wrong book," I said, throwing the
book back into my backpack. I shuffled my many books and looked for 'The All
About Harris Book'. "Ahh here it is," I said, taking out a brown soft book.
I flipped the pages until I got to chapter four--Allergies. I recited the list
of Allergies every Harris had. "Chocolate, Honey, Kacheek's Tails, Glass Roses,
Dark Faerie Eraser's, Every Postage Stamp, Air Faerie's, Tai-Kai Codestones
and, Pteri Beaks... the list goes on." I looked at Jeltei then continued, "It
says here that when a Harris is put into a certain substance they might--"
Suddenly a loud cry came from the bushes.
"Yirvee that's my Harris!" Jeltei cried as he
ran into the bushes.
I threw my book back into my backpack and ran
after my little brother.
"Jeltei wait up!" I said shrieking as I ran
into the bush. I ducked under the itchy leaves and branches, and finally saw
Jeltei cuddling a dirty Harris in his paws.
"Yirvee I found my her--my Harris." He smiled
then climbed out of the bush and back onto the sidewalk. I grinned relieved
that the small Harris was found. I was about to leave when something horrible
caught my eye.
Yes it was horrible indeed, a puddle of green
oozing liquid was bubbling furiously. Smoke emerged from the puddle and it made
a soft screeching sound. I sniffed the air impatiently, it smelled like it usually
did--nothing. I shrugged and walked back onto the sidewalk, to find Jeltei wiping
some green liquid off of his Harris.
"What should I name her Yirv?" Jeltei asked
I looked at the cute little Harris. Wait!
What was that green liquid that Jeltei was wiping off his Harris? I thought
to myself. It could be dangerous, that poor little Harris it might get sick...
but then again, it just might be my imagination running wild. I looked
up at Jeltei who was still waiting for my reply.
"How about Pippy? That's a nice name. I mean
that Harris looks so hyper and so cute," I said.
Jeltei looked at me and smiled, "I love that
name! That is the most perfect name." He hugged Pippy then started to rub his
eyes. "Let's go home Yirvee, I'm tired"
I put on my backpack and started back home in
The Next Morning...
"Jeltei your going to be late for school!" Geoff
exclaimed has he opened the front door. "Hurry up the bus is waiting for you."
Jeltei ran as fast as his little paws could
carry him. He was just a baby but a very smart one at that.
"Bye Geoff, bye Yirvee take good care of Pippy
for me." Jeltei slammed the door behind him, and as I looked out the front door
window I saw him get into the bus. I ran up stairs to Jeltei's room where Pippy
was asleep. Breathing in relief that she wasn't awake I went to go watch some
I quickly skimmed the channels on the lowest
volume so that the sounds wouldn't wake Pippy. Nothing was on, at least nothing
that caught to my interest. There was one thing that I was still curious about,
the last part of the sentence I didn't finish of the 'All About Harris Book'.
I carefully opened the backpack, and got out the brown book I had pulled out
the night before. I flipped the pages till I got to chapter four.
"Glass roses... Pteri beaks... ahh here it is--when
a Harris is put into a certain substance they might become violent, even evil
at sometimes. Harris Scientists say that when a green slimy and bubbly substance
called, 'The Jhudora Puddle' is dropped on a Harris no matter how small the
drop can be, the Harris will experience insanity and become very evil and destructive."
I stopped after those last words, and almost went into shock.
All of a sudden the power went off. The whole
room was dark and I was frozen and scared. Jeltei's room had no windows. I stood
up and desperately tried to open the oak door, but it wouldn't open. Suddenly
a dim light turned on and an evil shadow propped up against the walls. It was
a figure I had seen before--it was Pippy.
I gasped and turned around to see Jhudora side
by side with Pippy.
"Pippy no! She's dangerous she'll take you away
and you'll become evil!" I screamed at the top of my lungs reaching for Pippy.
"No Yirvee back off! You'll ruin my plans just
like you did the other times!" Jhudora cackled. "This is perfect, once the process
is complete this little cute Harris will become on bad Neopet eating machine
HAHAHAHAHA!!" Jhudora snapped her fingers and Pippy's eyes turned red.
"Must eat Poogle," Pippy, said walking
like a zombie towards me.
"You'll never get away with this!" I screamed
at Jhudora. Quickly I ran towards the closet looking for a weapon. "Binky..
no, Bottle... no, Rikti Plushie--I never knew Jeltei had one of these but no,
oooh la la," I pulled out something even I wouldn't dare to have. "A Halloween
petpet paint brush. I can definitely work with this." I bounced into the air
and flung the Halloween petpet paint brush at Pippy. It hit her and she right
away morphed into the disgusting zombie she should've been from the beginning.
"Is that the best you can do? You lame little
Poogle you should've known from the beginning that playing with silly baby toys
wouldn't do you any good." Jhudora took out--yet again--her Sword of the air
faerie. She flew up into the air and threw it at me, helpless I closed my eyes
ready to endure the pain, when the bedroom door opened and Jeltei caught the
"I know all about you and your evil plans!"
Jeltei said throwing the sword back at Jhudora, it hit Jhudora and she blew
up into a million purple pieces of dust.
"Jeltei you saved me!" I said hugging my baby
brother. "I never knew you had a Rikti Plushie," I said, picking up the little
toy. "Or a Halloween petpet paint brush"
"Hey those were supposed to be surprises! The
Rikti Plushie is a present for you, as for the petpet paint brush it was for
Pippy - WAIT... where is Pippy?"
I picked up the adorable yet gross Halloween
"Right here," I said, handing Pippy over to
"Now he's so cute, and all Halloween and stuff."
Jeltei hugged Pippy and left the room.
Now all I could say was.
