"A Draiks Hero Tail" by hallie035
Kespri woke up. She looked around to see where she had slept that night. She had been flying around yesterday to find some place to sleep. She had run away from her family because she felt her home was somewhere else. It wasn't that she didn't love her family, it was just that they never went really far away. They always stayed close to home. If Kespri or her sisters and brothers went too far away, they might get lost. This was what their mother feared for the most. But Kespri wanted to see more of the world, she wanted to go exploring. Her family laughed when she told them about it. They didn't understand. That's why Kespri decided to run away. She ran as soon as her family was asleep. She flew away as quietly as possible. She made speed when she knew her family wouldn't hear her anymore. She flew around for a couple of hours and then found a place to rest.
The world around Kespri was full of fog when she woke up. She couldn't see much of the world around her. But she could feel the ground was soft. To her left she saw mountains rising. To her right she saw a path going down. She was probably in a valley, somewhere on a mountain. She didn't think there were many Neopets higher up so she decided to follow the path down.
The path was beautiful. Flowers grew and their colors were bright. Some flowers were still closed, waiting for the sun to warm them up. Some Neopets were already walking around. They didn't say anything to Kespri, they were still tired. It was early in the morning so they had just woken up. Kespri wondered if they were exploring with their owners or if they had no home just like her. Would they know where they were? Kespri asked to a passing Meerca where she was. She told her she had rested here the past night because she was tired. The Meerca cautiously looked up to Kespri and told her this was Mystery Island.
