The Next Guardians

In his head, a voice rang wildly. "GET IT!" it roared. "ONLY WITH IT WILL YOU SUCCEED!"

     He snatched the artifact into his hands, and broke it free of its holds. How Fyora tried to protect it... Well, it was no use. It would work this time... The voice commanded it to. And he had to listen to the voice... Or else, all would be lost. *He* would be lost... But he wouldn't fail. He couldn't fail... Or else he'd be dead.

     "Now it begins," said the he and the Voice together.

     "Guys! STOP IT!" hollered Lilly Fluff at the top of her lungs. Her two younger siblings, Arrowtak the Lupe and KitaiMyou the Krawk were at it again - this time Kita was throwing pillows from the Kau print sofa at Arrowtak, who was vainly trying to reach his little sister.

     "For the love of the Faeries, Kita!" shouted Arrowtak. "I DIDN'T take your notebook!"

     "YOU LIE!" yelled Kita, holding a pillow above her head. "Prepare for the most unpleasant pillow fight of your life!"

     "Stop it stop it!" said Tylali - a striped Shoyru and the baby of the family. "Kita, don't!" Tylali held her face in her hands, tears streaming down her face. Tylali had been the youngest until Kita had been born - it had been Tylali herself who had taken her to Fungus Caves. Tylali didn't always have a leveller head than Kita, but she did now.

     Behind Tylali was one of the older sisters, Airiea. Airiea was a purple Eyrie who didn't say much. She liked to fly, but she always flew solo. She was a loner - something the entire family couldn't believe. Airiea thought herself as a dark creature, Airiea wasn't as disconnected. She was very close to their owner, and very close to her first sibling, Arrowtak.

     The five of them were busy in the living room, arguing until their throats were sore. None of them realized their owner was watching in the doorway.

     Suddenly, Tylali quit babbling in her little voice, and saw Lacey - their owner - who was smiling at the lot of them.

     "Are you guys ready for breakfast, or the war?" she teased, walking back into the kitchen.

     All five pets looked at each other, before flying - some literally - into the dining room. As each of them sat in their regular old spot on a regular old day, Arrowtak said his regular old words.

     "You didn't make pancakes?" he said, grinning.

     Lacey smacked him lightly on top of his head with the newest copy of The Neopian Times, laughing. Lacey was horrible at cooking... Especially pancakes. Sometimes, something to laugh about was a good escape.

     "What was the argument about this time?" asked the human, sitting down at her place at the table.

     "Arrowtak took my notebook!" said Kita, still glaring at her brother as she poured a bowl of Neoflakes.

     "I did not!" said Arrowtak, returning her stare. "I haven't touched your precious artwork at all this month..."

     Lacey passed around the plate of sliced neggs and the bottle of chocolate Kau Kau Farm milk.

     "Well, getting off that subject..." said Lilly, her Faerie Aisha wings fluttering in annoyance. "Do any of you know what day it is?"

     KitaiMyou looked utterly confused, but the rest of the family smiled. It was basically Kita's birthday - the entire family had been together for a whole year. Lacey had been visiting Neopia for a long time, but the family had come together over those years, rather than all at once.

     Everybody smiled. Suddenly, Airiea's eyes caught sight of the clock.

     "Oh!" she said, jabbing Arrowtak in the side with her elbow. "We gotta get to school."

     Everyone leaped out of their seats, and hugged Lacey goodbye. They all trudged off to Neoschool on a completely normal morning, as completely normal pets. But that wouldn't last long.

The Zafara Assassin 3: Eternal Dreams
I heard a soft sound behind me, and as I opened my eyes, I saw something peeking up at me through the waters. I rolled over, still laying against the ground, to try and get a better look at whatever it was.

I got up and hopped off of my porch and over to the bushes. Beyond these bushes was a forest. I went walking through there all the time exploring and having a good time. But the dark scared me.
