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."

Orlitz and the Search for the Emerald Crown: Part Two
A warm ray of light streamed through the small slit between the curtain covering the large cut-up windows. The gentle light awoke Orlitz who hid under the quilts of an enormous bed. A clock on her bedside table notified the Cybunny that it was time for breakfast at the lodge.

Tribulations of a Quest Sceptic: Part Four
The coiling, curling wisps of emerald smoke that drifted from the windows of the silent, stone tower seemed to cast the structure in an eerie, green glow. Each slowly spiraled into the air, lazy and slow, before drifting like cloud, forming into the most horrible, nightmarish shapes, toying with the imagination as clouds observed on a summer’s day might.
