Usuki Singing Stars #42: Alan's Flu Injection

“Mommy, why are we at the doctor’s house?”

Another Night

Nuria was a traveler of the Lost Desert, a Fire Faerie enacting justice when she saw it necessary and retreating into the shifting sands when it was not. Sometimes, this meant disbanding bandit groups or safely returning cargo stolen by common thieves – mercenary work without the pay.

"Another Night" by hyzenthlay___
Her name did not roll off the tongues of Neopians as easily as the other faeries’ do, yet she had no need of one to precede her. The mention of Fyora’s name carried power before the Queen could even make an appearance to the ones that uttered it, and Jhudora’s struck fear before a Neopian could stick a single foot into past barrier of her bluff. Nuria was neither Fyora or Jhudora, good or bad. Nuria was a traveler of the Lost Desert, a Fire Faerie enacting justice when she saw it necessary and retreating into the shifting sands when it was not. Sometimes, this meant disbanding bandit groups or safely returning cargo stolen by common thieves – mercenary work without the pay. Sometimes it was administrative work, watching each town unnoticed to ensure that they had proper food and water for their residents. She readily admitted that she did not have the right to act as judge and jury for the Lost Desert. But without her, the desert was without a faerie’s protection. Faerieland’s inhabitants were tied up in preventing future attacks on their land, something that seemed to be happening more and more these days. Even those faeries not currently warding their homeland up to its ears found themselves occupied by becoming defenders of the entire world, their protection spread thin across Neopia’s continents. Nuria had to protect the Lost Desert. If something happened, help from the other faeries could be entirely too late.

King Altador's Substitute
Queen Nera glanced up often from her painstaking work to watch King Altador and their teenage son, Alarick, play a competitive game of yooyuball. The sport was a popular pastime in the great land of Altador. The game of passing a yooyu around and trying to make it in the other team’s goal excited any Altadorian. Even the king himself grew fond of the game.
