Pet Name: Star_40361
I already had one pet, Masaki90. New to the site, I was learning all the
time. I had accidently entered a small shop while searching for the soup
kitchen in the north shops. Deciding that when I got in the shop fully,
I would look around a bit, then turn and search for the kitchen. But
when I entered, I saw a burst of light, and I fell to the ground. I
blacked out immediately.
When I woke up, I was in an old rusted bed. When I rolled over to see
who was making noise to my right, the springs creaked under my weight.
My head started to pound, and I quickly turned back over to cease the
I then looked at my surroundings. Masaki90 was at my left in a smaller
bed. It seemed as though we had both been knocked out when we fell
because of the bright light. Speaking of lights, I noticed that the
lights in the room were a dark red, and everything was dim. Masaki90
hadn't woken up yet, so I didn't worry about him. Just then, I heard a
"Ah! You're awake!" said the old crackly voice. I turned over again and
ignored the pain. I saw a scraggly old man in long NeoOwner robes. They
were the oldest kind I'd ever seen, but I had seen them. In an NeoOwner
Robes Museum, where they showed every year's NeoOwner Robes. Every year,
Neopets came out with a new robe. When you signed up during that year,
you always wore that robe. The robes the man was wearing were the ones
of the very first year Neopets was opened! I couldn't believe it! This
man was very old!
"H..H..Hello?" I stammered.
"Hi!" said the old man.
"What...who...why.." I began.
"I'm a MMW, name's Orville, and it's fun!" said the man walking toward
"What's a MMW? What's fun?" I asked, eager.
"An MMW? It's a Match-Making-Wizard! And Matching's fun!" he cried,
messing with something in a rather large tub.
"What do you do?" I said, interested.
"Well, this is what I do. People accidently come in here all the time.
When they step on the mat, a high powered camera takes a photo of them
immediately. The light is usually so bright, it knocks them off of
they're feet, and they black out. Another lower camera takes a photo of
their pet," explained the wizard. At this I looked over at Masaki90.
She was still sleeping. I looked back to the wizard.
"Why do you do this?" I asked.
"Match-Making Wizards are wizards who get sent the pets who have been in
the pound for to long. Pet Central sends them to us. We have to take a
special type of picture of people who accidently walk in our stores. The
pictures show what they feel, if they're funny, nice, all that stuff. We
then look at their pet. Same things we look at. We find a pet in our
back rooms over there," he said, pointing to some doors in the back. "We
find a pet that would be good for the person in the picture, and would
get along well with the owner's pet. Then we give them the pet for free.
Pets that are in our rooms have not had an owner, that when the right
person comes along, they are the best pets ever!"
"Urgg..." mumbled Masaki90 as she woke up.
"Ahh, your pet's awake!" cried the wizard. "Well, anyway, I only have 1
more pet in there, and you match her perfectly! She's been here for
ages, and even more in the pound! Before that, she was found by a
NeoOwner wandering on her own. They turned her in to the pound."
"But what if the owner does not want another pet, or can't because they
all ready have 4?" I was hassled with Masaki90 right now. I didn't need
"Well, I guess they don't have to take them. No one's ever declined a
pet from a MMW's shop before. They're sad enough when they first arrive
at the pound for a minute....to see their sad eyes now, at this point,
they're so red, and teary! Even people like you, who don't want another
pet, always accept!"
"Oh....I mean...how did you know?"
"I know these things. I'll go get our little friend," he said as he
walked toward the door.
"What species is she? Or he," I said, standing up.
"Kiko. Just like your friend there," he said pointing to Masaki90.
Masaki was a Kiko too. At this, she got up and leaped into my open arms.
"Err..." she gave her friendly growl.
"You'll be getting a new friend soon. Yep, you're the perfect match for
Star. Her owner must have a very specific Gener that matches her own. A
Gener is all that personality and stuff we talked about earlier."
"Oh," I said, trying to see into the dark room that the man had just
"Star? Star? Star, where are you? Star?" he called into the darkness,
Then I heard the soft voice of a Kiko. Masaki90 made that sad noise when
she was sad.
"Star? I've got someone here to see you..."
Just then, a small blue Kiko popped out of the darkness. It looked like
it had been crying for quite some time. "You like her?" he asked to my
"Yes! Yes!" I cried.
"Take her! She's all yours!"
"Maaa!" purred the Kiko. She ran toward me.
"Her name's Star? That's all? No numbers?" I asked.
"Star_40361. That's her name. I'm telling you, you've made one little
animal very happy!" he answered.
"I'm very happy!" I cried, running up and hugging Star_40361, my new
family member. Star gave a delighted purr as she realized that she had a
family now. Masaki90 gave Star a 'sniff-over' and decided to make
"Well, you better get on your way," said the old wizard.
"Yes, we better. Thank you! Thank you sooooo much!! This has made me
sooo happy! I think Star is happy to!" I cried as I stood up and hugged
the withered old man.
"Oh! I believe she is very happy!" he sighed. We both let go of each
other, and looked down at the small blue blob pulling on my NeoOwner2000
Robes. "I think that you need to go now. Your family wants you."
And with that, he walked into a small, what looked like bedroom, and
closed the door. "C'mon girls. Let's find that soup kitchen and get you
something to eat."
I left the shop that day with a new friend, Star_40361. I can't find
that wizard's shop even now. I have had my 2 friends since I started,
and I now have 4 pals. I am grateful to that wizard, because my best
friend came from his back storage rooms. I thank you wizard, wherever
you are. Thank you.
