"Pocket Change" by airickuh
Thanks for coming in to discuss this," Grimilix said to his employees, Castrix and Novix.
"No problem, boss," Castrix replied. "You're in charge, after all."
"That's true. Well, the Space Station management has given us a job, and I think you two would be well-equipped to handle it... and since you're the only pair of workers not busy this week, that works out nicely."
Novix said, "Well, let's hear it."

"Yeah, like I said, it's weird. A way to make some money, I guess... Though it seems more like something Dr. Sloth would do. Oh well, we just do what we're told, right?"
"Right. Well, we'll find the supplies and get to work."
"All right. Thanks, you two," Grimilix dismissed.
Castrix and Novix made their way down to the Supply Deck, where they could find... supplies. (Funny how that works.)

But the sun was sinking lower in the sky, the crowds around the Auction House were starting to thin out, and Serena had not spent any of her Neopoints yet.

They spoke of Adrian's masterpiece, handcrafted by him and funded by the king: the Wheel of Extravagance. Created from exquisite gold and bronze, it was designed as a tourist attraction for the city. A Neopian could pay one hundred thousand Neopoints to spin the wheel, and depending on where it landed, they won a prize.
"And you made sure to make the right parts heavier?" Jazan questioned.

It had been a long trip to Altador. The pair had walked through the desert surrounding Sakhmet, and through a mountain range on a path few knew about, but finally the great land became visible. King Altador was right. The water levels were rising - and fast. In a couple days, Amira guessed, it would reach the main city. It certainly was an emergency situation.
|And Then There Was Silence: Part Four|
Kanrik throws an empty bottle against the wall. It shatters into a rain of bluish glass that scatters across the ground. Finneus is afraid to look Kanrik in the face again. "What part of 'don't ever come back' do you not understand, Finneus?!"
