The Spelling Test

t was one of those hot, lazy, summer days when all you want to do is lie on your back among the buttercups and listen to the springabees buzzing by. Being stuck in a classroom felt like being in prison, and I couldn’t wait for the afternoon to end.

The alluring elegance of the establishment emitted the feeling of bliss. The restaurant, simply named "Kelp", was rumored to be one of Neopia's finest eateries. On the basis of its eclectic appearance, it certainly lived up to its reputation. Music washed around the room, produced by a live band. This beautiful sound was relaxing and classy at the same time. Smiling, Chessella the Pastel Draik hugged her sister. "Happy birthday, Angie. We're eating here to celebrate your birthday." "Thanks," answered Angie. "I appreciate it." Ella opened the menu. "This Ocean Platter sure looks good," she commented. "The menu describes it as 'a delectable blend of Maraquan delights for you to sample.' " She looked up at her sisters. "I'll order that, and I'll let each of you try a little piece." "Yum," grinned Maldice, another one of Ella's sisters. "Not as tasty as chocolate," groaned Walda, Ella's little sister. Ella turned to Walda. "If you finish your main course, I'll buy you a chocolate dessert. Otherwise, you won't get a treat." "Okay," grumbled Walda. "I'll order the Stramberry Sausages." Then the waitress, a Maraquan Uni, swam over to the table. "Are you ready to order?" she asked. "Yes," replied Ella. "I'll have the Ocean Platter..." The food came in a timely manner. Ella eagerly took a bite. "This is delicious!" she exclaimed. "Where's my piece?" asked Maldice. "You promised."

Clouds Over Cogham: Part Eight
Sunlight. Actual sunlight. It’s barely been an hour since Tor and Roberta last felt the sun shining down upon them — since they’d been in the thankfully still-freed city of Brightvale — but the clouds’ smothering pressure had already convinced them that they’d never feel warm again.
