Dr. Sloth and I walked up flights of stairs to the top of
the Hidden Tower.
"Man! I see how you Faeries keep in such good
shape!" Sloth panted.
"Yeah, whatever," I said automatically. "Now,
the Faeries should be switching shifts about now. If I'm right, it's the Fire
Faeries turn to watch the items." I told him. Just as I thought, the Air Faerie
got up and left and the Fire Faerie took her place. "The Fire Faerie isn't the
most alert Faerie in Faerieland. She usually zooms out within about 5 minutes,"
I told Dr. Sloth.
When the Fire Faerie was absorbed in watching
the clouds float by outside, we snuck past her and grabbed a sword of the Air
Faerie and some skull marbles.
"Sloth!" I hissed at him. "Over by the Sprout
Cannon!" Sloth did as he was told. "Ready, aim," I whispered across the room.
"Fire!" I yelled. The Fire Faerie's mind came back to the present and she screamed.
Suddenly, sprouts were flying everywhere. The Fire Faerie grabbed the nearest
artifact (which just happened to be a Wand of Flamebolt) and fired it. I threw
the marbles and the Fire Faerie disappeared in a cloud of multicolored dust.
When it cleared I ran towards her with the Sword in my hand. WHAM! The Fire
Faerie lay unconscious on the floor.
"Whoah!" Sloth gasped in amazement. "You killed
"No you moron, she's just knocked out for the
time being." I told him. "Grab that rod of dark nova, we're going to fight fire
with fire. Or should I say, dark with dark."
After we raided the Faerie Queen's hidden storage
of Dark Faerie erasers we ran into the Faerie Hall where all the Faeries had
gathered for dinner.
"Ahhh… Water Faerie, nice of you to join us.
And who's this?" The Faerie Queen asked. Sloth pulled off his disguise. "Guess
who!" he yelled.
What happened next was pure panic and terror.
There where Faeries running and screaming everywhere. It was complete chaos.
'Sweet.' I thought to myself.
"Hey Jhudora! If you think you're the evilest
of them all, think again!" Sloth yelled over the screaming Faeries. Everyone
stopped dead as Sloth held something over his head.
"Yes!" he boomed. "I have the only Wand of the
Dark Faerie in the whole of Neopia! And as Jhudora can tell you, one blast of
this baby is enough to send this whole accursed cloud crashing into the ocean
where it will meet the same fate as Maraqua! Ahahahahahahaha!"
'What is he doing?' I thought. 'This isn't part
of our plan!' I ran up to him. "What are you doing, Frank?!" I exclaimed.
"Stay back!" he yelled and pointed the wand
at me. I fell to the ground. From where I was laying I saw the Earth Faerie
in the hallway leading up to the Hall. Sloth fired at her and as if in slow
motion, I saw the beam shoot out of the gun and straight for her. I jumped up
and landed in front of her just as the beam was about to hit her. I was down.
The next thing I remember was sobbing. I opened
my eyes and saw Jhudora… crying? Was this some kind of twisted dream? I had
no time to dwell on this though, because at that moment the Faerie Queen walked
"Jhudora, only a weapon as evil as that could
kill a Faerie." Jhudora sobbed even louder then before. "The weapon has been
destroyed." The Faerie Queen was extremely calm as she said this. She walked
over to me. I opened my eyes wider. "Water Faerie?" she said, not quite surprised.
"Yes?" I managed to say.
The other Faeries jumped for joy.
"She's alive! She's alive!" Jhudora jumped up
and down waving her arms madly. All the Faeries gathered around my bed except
for the Faerie Queen. She stood at the back of the room smiling casually, her
Well, in the end I found out Sloth was only using me to get into the Hidden
Tower. I guess you can never completely trust a person if the have a bad history.
When I asked the Faerie Queen how the got rid of Sloth, she simply replied,
"The was too much peaceful magic here for his own good." And I was very curious
about why she wasn't rejoicing when she found out I wasn't dead. When I asked
her this she told me, "I knew you weren't dead. I have my ways." Well, I suppose
I'll understand her in time.
The Earth Faerie told the Faerie Queen that she
was the one stealing after I saved her life. Turns out the Faerie Queen knew
it was her all along, so she punished the Earth Faerie after everyone found
out I was alive. Poor Earth Faerie, she got in double trouble! For lying, she
has to clean the Faerie Kitchen for a week. For the stealing part, she had to
walk around Neopia with a sign on her back that said 'I'm a Pant Devil at heart'
I think I'll go help her with the dishes now.
