Pet Name: VanishingCat
You know, there are very few things an apparition has to be scared of. Unlike you humans who crumple at the merest sight of anything with eight legs there's very little that phases a ghost. It's not like we actually exist in the physical plane so nothing can harm us. We can generally glide through life and objects with ease. My name is Vanish and, up until a few weeks ago, I thought there was nothing left to be afraid of. But oh how wrong I was.
Now let's face it, when you become undead your tally of friends tends to drop off a bit. Even though we've haunted the woods for centuries humans still seem to be scared of us, go figure. So it gets a little bit lonely only talking to the undead. Of course I'm always up for a chat so I often leave my home in the woods to seek the company of more living beings. And so this is how my story starts.
It was just another day like any other. I was once again bored of the mundane. When you've lived for longer than most would desire as have most of your friends conversation gets tedious. And living neopets are so amusing. This boredom lead me to the house of an elderly kacheek engrossed in that thing you call 'cleaning'. Trying not to frighten the dear old biddy too much, the haunted woods already have a sizable ghost population, I drifted into the kitchen.
"Why hello there!" I crooned as I put my face through the door she was scrubbing.
"Ahhhhhh!" She screamed and threw the cleaning cloth at me. How rude.
So much for not too scared, oh well.
"Get out my my house you meddler! I know you're up to no good and I have a lot of cleaning to do" yet more yelling.
"Oh but I just wanted a chat, that's all" I replied, polite as can be.
"I'm having none of that," furiously, she stormed off to the cupboard.
She returned with a strange creature. It had a long trunk and seemed incapable of movement. The trunk was connected to a domed body which further had a tail that slotted into the wall.
"Mmm, and what do you think you're gonna do about..."
The sound was deafening. She lunged at me with the trunk of the beast. I attempted a dodge but felt parts of me being sucked away down the tubular mouth. What, what was happening? What is this creature? She lunged again and more of me disappeared into the vacuum.
"Hah! Got you now!" she triumphantly yelled.
What was this absurd force? I know I should have run but was paralyzed with this newfound fear. One final lunge and I had disappeared into blackness. Sorcery I tell you.
"There's more where that came from!" she yelled triumphantly.
I spent the next two hours in darkness, waiting for her to sleep so I could escape the belly of the beast. Oddly it appeared to be made of paper and contained only dust. When I finally heard a soft snoring noise drone in I quickly floated out of my enemies innards and out of that house. Knowing now there truly was something to fear and that I had met my arch enemy.
