Fourteen Foods for Valentine's Day

by _brainchild_


     Fourteen Foods for Valentine’s Day!

     ---Starring Lerlifa the Chocolate Draik, Rasola the Plushie Kougra, and Walda the ever so bratty Baby Kacheek!!!---

     Lerlifia: Hello there. My name is Lerlifia, and I consider myself to be a real foodie! ...No, you imbecile. Not because I’m a Chocolate pet. I am BEYOND sick of hearing those silly jokes! Anyway, I view myself as a foodie because I love trying different types of cuisine, even if I may feel a bit apprehensive about some of them. (That Ketchup Ice Cream was quite different, to say the least.) Therefore, in honor of February 14th (Valentine’s Day), I am going to sample fourteen Valentine-related foods to see whether I like them or not.

          ---Heart Shaped Negg---


     Lerli: This looks yummy!

     Rasola: I hear that they use faerie dust to make it taste better.

     Lerli: How is that a crime?! *nonchalantly bites into negg*

     Lerli: The flavor is lovely, but the texture is somewhat...rubbery...

     Rasola: *sigh* Those things are made of RUBBER. Our owner wrote a poem about this shady secret in Round 2128 of the Poetry Contest.

     Lerli: What? BLEEAAAHHH!

          ---2 Scoops of Friendship---


     Lerli: Who doesn’t like ice cream?! DIG IN!!! *begins to obnoxiously devour the treat*

     Rasola: There are TWO, so sharing is caring! *grabs bowl*

     Lerli: Fine, but I already ate the chocolate one.

     Walda: Did someone say CHOCOLATE?! *dashes in excitedly*

     Rasola: Noooooo...

     Walda:*grabs bowl* Where is the CHOCOLATE?! WAAAAHHHH! *tantrum ensues*

     Rasola: Go to your room.

     Walda: I WANT CHOCOLATE!!! *bites Lerli’s tail*

     Lerli: OWWW!!!

     Rasola: WALDA! What did we tell you about that?! That HURTS!!!

     Lerli: GO TO YOUR ROOM!!!

          ---Adorably Pink Lollypop---


     Rasola: This looks SOOOOOOO adorable and tasty!!! *sticks out tongue*

     Lerli: Don’t---

     Rasola: BLEEAAAHHH! What gives?!

     Lerli: I told you not to...

     Rasola: This thing is made of PLASTIC!!! WHY?!

     Lerli: It’s a customization prop, smart one.

     Rasola: I wish I had known that before!

     Lerli: *sigh* I tried to tell you...

          ---Box of Chocolate Larnikins---


     Rasola: I hope these aren’t real bugs.

     Lerli: Relax. They’re just choc--- I mean, candy.

     Rasola: Either way, who in their right mind would sell a product that looks like THIS?! The box is torn open, and the chocolate is MELTED! Horrible marketing, if you ask me.

     Walda: Did someone say CHOCOLATE?! *rushes in excitedly*

     Lerli: Yeah, chocolate-covered BUGS. You won’t like these.

     Walda: EWWWW!!! *runs out*

     Rasola: That was close. Anyway, I don’t want these. They’re a melted, sticky mess! Throw them away.

     Lerli: Your loss! I don’t care what my food looks like. *licks chocolate happily*

          ---Candy Heart Necklace---


     Lerli: Yum! *tears apart string and starts eating*

     Rasola: *sigh* I was going to wear that.

     Lerli: Who in their right mind would wear CANDY as a NECKLACE?! Especially YOU! You have plenty of expensive golden jewelry!

     Rasola: *shrug* I felt like changing up my style a little.

     Lerli: Well, these are too sweet. Want them?

     Rasola: *grits teeth* You ruined my necklace for NOTHING?!

     Lerli: Take them or leave them.

     Rasola: I guess... *chomps on candy*

          ---Bitten Heart Muffin---


     Rasola: These items are getting worse and worse.

     Lerli: Agreed! Who would even EAT, let alone SELL, something which a stranger already took a bite out of?! I don’t want their Sneezles!

     Rasola: Sneezles if you’re LUCKY.

     Walda: *walks in* I’m BORED---Is that a CHOCOLATE muffin?! *eyes light up*

     Lerli: No, it’s coffee-flavored.

     Walda: BLEEAAAHHH! Coffee tastes like a Pile of Soot!

     Rasola: How would you know what a PETPET tastes like?!

     Walda: Umm...

     Rasola: I’m calling the PPL!!!

          ---Heart Crepe---


     Lerli: This looks yummy. *eats*

     Rasola: Is that strawberry frosting?

     Lerli: Yup! Want some?

     Rasola: Meh, I’ll pass.

     *Lerli tosses out the stick that was holding the crepe together.*

     Lerli: Your loss.

     *rustling sound*

     Rasola: *turns around* WALDA!!! Why are you eating out of the TRASH?!

     Walda: There was a chocolate heart on the end of this stick! YUM!!!

     Lerli: I must’ve overlooked it...

     Rasola: This is NOT the Meridell Rubbish Dump! I can’t imagine why someone would want old food out of a dumpster...

     Walda: It tastes MORE than fine!!!

     Lerli: It’s still gross, Walda...

          ---Cupid Negg---


     Lerli: It looks like the arrow is made of candy.

     Rasola: I won’t overlook that like you did last time. *pulls out arrow and eats it* Yum!

     Lerli: Um, Rasola, look at your arms...

     Rasola: *looks down* AAGGHH! There’s cherry sauce all over my sleeves!

     Lerli: When you pulled out the arrow, the sauce leaked out onto your clothes...

     Rasola: Talk about a serious design flaw!!! Now my expensive dress is ruined! Remind me not to buy this again...

          ---Heart Shaped Fruit Cake---


     Rasola: It seems kind of odd to mix fruit and *whispers* chocolate...

     Lerli: It has fruit in it because it’s a tropical food. It may be unconventional, but I’ll try anything, since I’m a foodie. *eats it* I kinda like it, but I agree that it’s odd. The fruit overpowers the chocolate...

     Walda: *sprints in excitedly* Did someone say CHOCOLATE?!

     Lerli: Noooooo...

     Walda: *gobbles cake* Um, this is weird... *frowns*

     Rasola: Then don’t eat it.

     Walda: Not what I was expecting...

          ---Heart Latte---


     Rasola: I think this cup could be a lot more reminiscent of Valentine’s Day.

     Lerli: Who cares?! I bought this for the coffee.

     Rasola: However, you’re meant to keep the cup.

     Lerli: Whatever. *drinks coffee* *frowns* They put a bit too much sugar in this...

     Rasola: Let me try. *drinks coffee* A BIT?! That’s an understatement! I might as well be drinking sugar water!

     Walda: *walks in* Well, I like things which are sweet. *grabs coffee obnoxiously and drinks it* OWWWW, OWWWW, OWWWW, OWWWW, OWWWWWWWWW!!!! HOT, HOT, HAAAAAAAATTTTT!!!

     Rasola: It’s coffee, smart one. Of course it’s going to be hot.

     Lerli: *confiscates coffee* A small child shouldn’t be drinking coffee anyway! If chocolate is enough to send her on a sugar rush, imagine what COFFEE will do!


     Lerli and Rasola: NO!!!

          ---Bleeding Heart Jelly Sundae---


     Rasola: Well, this doesn’t look appetizing.

     Lerli: I agree, but I’ll try it anyway. *eats sundae* YUCK!!! What is this even MADE OF?! Not ICE CREAM, that’s for sure!

     Rasola: I’ll pass, then.

     Lerli: What could it be?! It tastes all... nasty and... gross... and... VILE!!!

     Rasola: What were you expecting?! This monstrosity came straight out of the HAUNTED WOODS!

     Lerli: That explains it...

     Walda: *walks in* Why is everyone yelling? *eyes light up* Yum! Ice cream! *gobbles sundae*

     Lerli: Seriously, don’t...

     Walda: EWWWWW!!! GROSS!!! *eyes watering* What IS THIS?! WAAAAHHHH!!! *runs away while throwing tantrum*

     Lerli: Don’t say I didn’t warn you...

          ---Deluxe Heart Waffle---


     Rasola: Here’s a way to get Walda to eat her breakfast. It has ice cream on it.

     Lerli: She doesn’t need it. There is little to no nutritional value in it...

     Walda: *walks in* Did someone say my name? *eyes light up* Ooohhh! Ice cream! *takes bite* OWWW!!! What did I just bite down on?!

     Rasola: You’re supposed to remove the decorations, smart one.

     Walda: WAAAHHH!!! *tantrum ensues*

     Lerli: Since you hurt your mouth, the ice cream should make it feel better.

     Walda: *devours treat* Yum! I wish it was chocolate, though.

     Rasola: *shakes head* The brat ALWAYS gets her way...

          ---Glitter Heart Candy---


     Rasola: How does it glitter?!

     Lerli: I don’t know... Magic, I suppose!

     Rasola: Don’t tell me they’re using faerie dust again. I don’t trust this one after hearing about that Heart Shaped Negg.

     Lerli: I’m eating it anyway. *puts it in her mouth* *eyes grow wide* Apparently the glitter is carbonated! I LOVE THIS!

     Rasola: Now I want one, too...

     Lerli: You had your chance.

          ---Angry Candy---


     Rasola: I wouldn’t eat those if I were you.

     Lerli: Why not?

     Rasola: Because they’ll bite you, smart one.

     Lerli: Nonsense! They aren’t alive! *eats* They are very spicy, yet sweet at the same---OWWWW!!!

     Rasola: What did I tell you?

     Lerli: These...nasty...things...0/10...don’t...recommend...


     *Lerli’s face begins to turn green.*

     Rasola: Lerli, it looks like you’re sick with Fyora knows what...

     Lerli: No kidding, Einstein! Take me to the Gelert Doctor!

     Rasola: Okay, let’s go. After we’re done, you ought to go get a refund on those evil candies!!!

          The End.

Shadow Play
Terra loved Neopia Central at night. The bustling metropolis was already fascinating enough during the day, but at night it turned into a symphony of light and motion. Faerie-dust lamps set down a rhythm of soft light on endless sidewalks, magic signs blinked a syncopated beat above shops and restaurants, and a choir of Eyrie cabs and Uni-drawn lorries streamed along city blocks like a grid-shaped river.
