The Discovery of Brightvale -- A Celebration

Splendid banners of green, white and gold hang proudly in every doorway. Tapestries and all manor of decoration imaginable adorn the walls of every hall. A grey Kougra in a smart black suit walks through the halls of Brightvale Castle, his dress shoes clicking on the cobblestone floor with every hurried step he takes. As he rounds a corner, he slows his feverish pace, and takes a moment to re-collect himself at a large, wooden door.

A Day in the Life of Jeronie

What an exhausting and frustrating day. My day off and I spent it cleaning out my overly stuffed safety deposit box. If only the first thing I had run into hadn't been my stash of smug bug sticky paper. I am glad no other Neopians stopped by to see me. First I got one stuck on my foot, and while trying to remove it got another stuck on my left paw. My teeth finally got me out of that situation. Where did the rest of the day go?

Flor continued to grumble as the three ventured through summery scenes. Eventually they reached the Trading Post. "I'm parched!" whined Flor. "I need something, anything to drink!"

"Flor," started Christine incredulously, "did you even pay attention to what you just drank?"

Mystery Island Mayhem

After searching through the lost city of Geraptiku for nearly three hours straight, dodging arrows and venomous petpets, Apsy was more than tired, especially since she and her brother Sky also had to baby-sit their friend Tintilla the Darigan Gelert and her pet Zomutt Nanna that day, for Tintilla was more than crazy – she was always hyper, and, no matter what Apsy or Sky said, Tintilla refused to listen.

The Lost Desert? Too hot. Terror Mountain? Too cold. Jelly World? It doesn’t exist, *cough* yeah right… Mystery Island? YEAH!

The Trouble with Tridents: Part One
The seashells, in all the different colours of the sea, glimmered beautifully on the shelves. The counter looked cleaner than usual, free from clutter except for the latest news articles about current seashell trends. Outside, the sunrays were perfectly lighting up the shop front as usual.
