Destiny of Seamstress Cybunny: Part Three
I was prepared to say my farewell to the students the next
day. They all nodded and understood the reasons. Actually, since they knew I was
going, the students all met up last night. One of them presented me with a farewell
"Thank you," I said with a smile as class ended.
I left the school for the last time a couple of minutes after. When I returned
to Terror Mountain, Shai was waiting patiently for me.
"I have to defeat the Cybunny Night now, right?"
"Correct," Shai replied. "This Mega Carrot Blaster
will help you in defeating the Cybunny Night. However, before you can even face
the Cybunny Night, you need to see your sisters in the Rock Caves."
"Miss Kougra's been kidnapped."
"You're kidding!" I gasped as I hurried to Shai's
Outfitters, placed the poster on the table, took the Mega Carrot Blaster from
Shai, and hopped off to the Rock Caves. The Rock Caves had a lot of light in
it as I approached the entrance. Screams and giggles were heard inside, so I
made sure to hurry as fast as possible.
Miss Kougra was tied up, while Colleen and Colette
were grinning. I prepared my Mega Carrot Blaster for the battle. Both of the
twins were hopping down the stairs toward me. Colleen growled while Colette
was just being Colette.
"You have finally arrived, Seamstress." Colleen
continued growling. "I was wondering if you would show up at all." Colette nodded
in agreement with her sibling. To be honest, I was tired of them both. I held
the Mega Carrot Blaster in front of me. Both twins stepped back and up the same
set of stairs they used before.
However, Colleen tripped at the last step. Colette
gasped as both of them fell in the giant black pot. I found out later that the
pot was filled with a poisonous concoction. Miss Kougra gasped after the twins
fell. She had a feeling she knew how I would react to a situation like that.
I was inarticulate at the time. Colleen and Colette
usually would not be stupid enough to toss themselves in the pot. That was not
like them at all. However, it happened anyway. Miss Kougra broke free from the
ropes, while I hopped out of the Rock Caves.
As soon as I left the Rock Caves, the Cybunny
Night was right in front of me. It and I backed up so that neither of us would
end up in the Rock Caves. Snow began to fall as the battle commenced. Cybunny
Night went first.
"Who are you?" it asked after it charged at me
with a sword. I dodged the attack right before saying my name.
"I am Seamstress Cybunny, your worst nightmare,"
I replied as I prepared my Mega Carrot Blaster. Before I was able to attack,
however, the Cybunny Night swung at me with his sword. Fortunately, I was able
to hop past the sword at the last second.
The Cybunny Night was not very amused. He kept
swinging his sword, while I kept dodging the attacks. I finally fired a few
carrots from the Mega Carrot Blaster. Something was different about the carrots,
The carrots turned out to be pink steel carrots.
Pink steel carrots had a light pink colour with several layers of steel, along
with a darker pink coloured stem. I did not know what the pink steel carrots
did at the time. The Cybunny Night was injured because of the carrots.
"You're good," he muttered as he fell in defeat.
The Cybunny Night was not as much of an opponent as it turned out. However,
I had a larger challenge to face. My throat started to really hurt after firing
the carrots. I noticed that Miss Kougra witnessed the entire battle.
"Are you all right, Sakura?" Miss Kougra asked
as she went toward me.
"I'm fine," I replied with a bit of a croaky
voice. A few minutes later, I returned to Shai's Outfitters. The door was locked
after I entered because it was night. Miss Kougra had already gone back to Neopia
Central because of classes.
I dragged myself to bed after placing my teacher
uniform in my wardrobe. The wind was quite loud a few times during that night,
but I didn't care. All that I wished for was some sleep.
The next morning, my throat was still a little
sore. Shai came to visit me later in the day. I prepared tea for the two of
us. The Wocky seemed a little upset when I came in the room.
"I'm sorry about what happened to your sisters,
Sakura," Shai said. "That was not expected at all, was it?"
"No, it wasn't," I replied as I drank my tea.
"Knowing those two, they would have probably survived, wouldn't they?"
Shai shook her head. If it were anyone that knew
what happened around Terror Mountain, Shai would have at least noticed. The
Wocky continued sipping her tea, while I stayed silent.
"How's Miss Kougra?" I asked a few minutes later.
"She's fine," Shai replied. "Teaching students
"That's good." I continued staying silent after
that. Shai eventually got up to excuse herself, but she noticed the condition
of my throat.
"Are you all right, dear?" Shai asked. "Let me
see your throat." The Wocky used some of her magical power to examine me. She
nodded every so often before stopping.
"Well?" I asked.
"Sakura, did the pain start after you fired the
Mega Carrot Blaster with the pink steel carrots inside?"
"It's just as I thought, then." Shai paused for
a moment before continuing. "The pink steel carrots are special carrots. Along
with a higher attack, the carrots also sometimes have a recoil effect on the
one who used the carrots. I thought that it would not affect Cybunnies, but
it seems I was inaccurate on that fact."
"So, the carrots caused my throat to be sore?"
"Correct. As I mentioned before, it was a result
of recoil." Shai approached me before asking another question. I prepared myself
for what Shai was going to ask me next.
"How many carrots did you fire, Sakura?"
"Four, I think."
"Oh dear. That's certainly a problem," Shai explained.
"You should be very careful in the future with the pink steel carrots. I have
to go now, but I hope you'll feel better soon. Take care, dear." Shai disappeared
after that. I was beginning to wonder if I was really in danger.
Then I felt it. My throat seemed as if it was
inflamed for some reason. I knew that I had to get treatment for it, but I did
not know where to start. Dizziness suddenly took the best of me. I was spinning
around like I was dancing with someone.
Suddenly, I managed to stop myself from being
anymore dizzy. However, the pain of my throat worsened even more than before.
My face felt flushed as I struggled to do much of anything. I knew that I had
to find help. Shai was not around, which did not help me at all. The next thing
I knew, I was on the sofa.
"Shai," I panted. "Help... "
The Wocky appeared a moment later. She noticed
my condition as she hurried toward me.
"Sakura! What happened to you?" Shai asked as
she held up my head.
"I feel dizzy," I replied slowly.
"You have a high fever as well!" Shai exclaimed.
"I never knew that the pink steel carrots would have this much of an effect
on you. I'll grab something to help your fever. Hang in there, okay?" The Wocky
hurried off toward the kitchen to prepare something.
I was not only dizzy and feverish, but tired
as well. My throat was hurting so much that it was way too much for a Cybunny
like me to handle. Shai rushed back with a wrapped towel to place on my head.
The Wocky also noticed that my throat's condition continued to worsen.
"You're worse than when I left, dear," Shai gasped.
"Try to calm down and not to panic."
I was too ill to panic. At that point, my throat
was screaming out in anguish. Eventually, I screamed out in anguish as well.
Shai continued calming me down for the next few minutes.
I calmed down for a little bit as Shai knelt
next to me. The Wocky was calm about the entire situation even though I screamed
loud enough that anyone in the shop would have been able to hear it.
"I'm sorry, Shai," I struggled to say.
"For what, dear?" Shai asked.
"For screaming so loudly."
"Don't worry about that, dear. Concentrate on
getting better instead," Shai replied as she patted me. I nodded my head slowly
as the pain in my throat continued to worsen. Eventually, I gasped a few times.
The elderly Wocky became worried about me.
"I'll be right back, dear. Keep concentrating
on getting better," Shai commanded as she disappeared for a few minutes. It
was a little difficult for me to concentrate on that because of the extreme
anguish that I was dealing with. A little bit later, probably about a minute,
I ended up fainting.
