My New Chokato Kiko Life

Hi there! My name is Jaxylla and I've recently turned into a Chokato Kiko. My life isn't quite like it used to be.

Caught in The Middle

Looking up at Alvina, I smile as I hand over my latest find: a Bubbling Fungus. Alvina and I have worked together for years now. She knew me back in my poor days when I was nothing special; just a blue skeith with no neopoints to my name. Part of my financial success and climb up the social ladder is due to my dealings with Alvina.

Just Another Day

I walked in to the bank with Archie as I do every day. I collected my daily interest, waved to the Skeith, and walked out the door. As I turned the corner to go check my shop till, I noticed a forlorn looking Kadoatie. Archie leaned down and the little Kadoatie wandered over and mewed.

Kads & Capers: The Petpet Detective Book 1

Life at the Kadoatery was a simple one. The petpets spent their time there in splendour; relaxing, playing, eating gourmet meals and being groomed and pampered. Each Kadoatie had their own private quarters, leading onto a vast communal space filled with anything a Kad could want.

Clipped Wings

Somewhere in a clearing in the Woods, there lay a cottage. On the outside, it appeared small and plain, but inside it was luxuriously decorated. The owner of this shack, a frivolously dressed Buzz, was gazing in a mirror while applying eye shadow, when a small Halloween Shoyru burst into the room, startling the Buzz and getting makeup everywhere.

"Caught in The Middle" by clemsonrowing
L ooking up at Alvina, I smile as I hand over my latest find: a Bubbling Fungus. Alvina and I have worked together for years now. She knew me back in my poor days when I was nothing special; just a blue skeith with no neopoints to my name. Part of my financial success and climb up the social ladder is due to my dealings with Alvina. By completing quests for her daily, I was able to afford a wraith paint brush to make myself stand out like I always dreamed of, all the while creating a decent savings account at the National Neopian Bank. I am still far from my goal of becoming a millionaire, but I refuse to settle for being anything other than the best. My mind is quickly brought back to the present as Alvina hands over my usual payment: 10,000np and a Eo Codestone. She speaks as I rush to put my payment in the small satchel I always carry while I work. “Guzalu, I believe that was the fastest quest you’ve ever completed for me,” she looks down at the watch on her wrist with a smile, “twenty-four minutes. This is why I always call you first when I need something quickly.” “You know how much I value our business relationship, I don’t think I would be where I am today if it weren’t for your help throughout the years,” I tell her honestly. She looks down at me thoughtfully before turning and going deeper into her lair. “Sorry if I don’t seem quite myself today,” she starts, a small smile forming on her face as she returns to her usually controlled self. “We’ve known each other for years now, and you know how much I dislike my sister. Well, I think she is up to her usual tricks, which I’m sure only means trouble for me. I may be a dark faerie, but I am nowhere near as evil as she.” She nods towards the door, her arm extending out towards it. “Thanks for your help today, make sure to return tomorrow for another quest.” Heading towards the door, I promised that I would be back tomorrow.

The Spirit of Black Keep: Part Nine
Pharazon had no idea what to say. This was the moment he and Celice had been dreading, and although Pharazon had put on a brave front earlier, now that it was actually happening, the only thing he could think of to do was, perhaps, hide under the bed. But fear kept him rooted to the spot.

“Are you ready?” Edlun grasped the amulet in his wing, ready to remove it and give it to Bernard. Bernard nodded, holding his hands out ready to accept the amulet. Edlun slowly removed the golden amulet from around his neck, as his form began to fade into the sunlight.
