I consider myself a pretty good looking draik. I pretty much got through life just on my good looks alone. If I needed a place to sleep at night, I would bat my eyes in the right manner and someone would offer me a spare bed at their house or buy a few nights at the Neolodge for me. Food? Even easier to get. No one wants to let a cute little girl starve.
My check-out at the Neolodge has finally come to an end so I needed to find my next meal ticket and housing for the week. I decided to check out the Art Centre Catacombs to find the next neopet to "help" me out. The Coffee Shop attracts a lot of neopets. I scope out the area to see what neopets are lounge about the area. I spied a well dressed brown gelert who is seated by himself reading and drinking some coffee. This looked like the ideal neopet to "assist" my lifestyle.
I go over to him and sit down across from the gelert. He glances at me briefly and continues to read his book. I sigh and said, "I hear the coffee is better here than on Roo Island.
He finally closes his book to looks at me with a soft smile and says "Yes, it is quite better here. It has more of a natural sweet taste. Would you care for a cup?"
"Why, yes please," I replied
He places his book down on the table and goes inside the shop to order another coffee. A moment later, he returns back with a cup of coffee and couple of cakes. Bingo! I got my meal for the day. Now, I just need my bed for the night.
He sets the stuff down the table and asked, "So, might ask who you are?"
"Forgive me, but I don't like to hand out my name sparely."
"Fair enough. So, how have you been today?"
We began to chat for the rest of day and into the early evening. It felt great talking with this gelert for the whole day but I still need a place to stay for the night. The gelert pulls out watch to check the time.
"Well, it is getting late. I am going to head home now and you should probably do the same too."
Home... That word seem to really resonate with me more than usual all of a sudden. I looked down at the table sheepishly. He noticed my reaction.
"Would you like me to walk you home?"
"Umm, no thanks... I'll be fine."
There's that word again. I wish he would stop saying. It felt like he was reading me like a book.
"Do have a place to go to?"
I could feel the tears building in my eyes. I didn't have a place I called home. I stole a quick glance at the gelert and continued to look down at the table. The gelert had a tender look on his face. He seemed to know that I didn't have place to go. He opened his book, wrote something down, and tore it out.
He handed the page to me and said, "If you need a place to stay, no matter how long, feel free to come to the address I wrote down."
I avoided looking at the gelert as he left. Was this gelert offering me place to go home to? I looked at the address. The address was just south of Neopia Central and was not too far away at all. I thought about it and came to the conclusion that I needed to go to this place. I left the Coffee Shop to retrieve a small bag of my belongs from my secret hiding spot before heading out. My journey to the address did not take long at all.
I got to the doorsteps of the address and checked the house number to make sure it matched the number written down. I hesitated to knock, but then shook off my fears the best that I could. I knocked on the door.
I heard voice that sounded deeper than the gelert's respond from somewhere in the house. Oh no, maybe this is the wrong house. The door finally opened before I could make an attempt to leave. A muscular spotted lupe answered the door, "Hello, can I help you with something?"
I hand the note to the lupe. He looked it over, leaned back inside and shouted, "Ruffy!"
I heard the familiar voice of the brown gelert from earlier today and the sound of steps getting closer to the door. The gelert came to the door and saw me standing there.
He smiled and said, "Hello again. Are you looking for a place to stay for the night?"
I sheepishly nodded my head yes.
"I thought you might show up. Right this way. I have a room ready for you, and would you care for something to eat? I am making dinner for brother and I, but there is still time for you to join in."
I nodded again. I paused and finally spoke, "Before anything else happens allow me to introduce myself. My name is Suicune Starmagic."
