Pet Name: Comtrya
A young Ixi approaches you as you walk through the mall and hands you a flyer. "Hey, hey! Check out the new deals we have at the Plushie Emporium! On sale today!" he yells as he walks off to the next unlucky victim.
You have nothing better to do, so you follow the instructions to find the place. You had no idea this store was even in the mall. You could have sworn the Plushie Emporium was not there a few minutes ago, but it mysteriously appeared before your eyes.
Curiously, you walk inside.
There are a few people within the store. Some owners with their pets, but no one seems to notice you walk inside. You think to yourself, This place is mighty weird, as you see the plushies on the shelf. They happen to be all the hideous neopets from around Neopia, ranging from mutant Skeiths to Darigan Krawks, and they all seem to be staring at you.
By now, you are starting to freak out. You decide it's time to leave when a little tag catches your eye, a 25 NP tag stuck within a pile of other mutant plushies, the only one of its kind. "I wonder what is stuffed under there?" you ask to no one in particular. You begin to reach inside and the mutant Ixi plushie next to you sticks his head out and tries to nip you. “Eekk!” you yell, snatching your hand back. You turn to leave the store, but you think of that little tag. You don’t know why, but you must stick your hand back in and grab it. Taking a gold coin out of your pocket, you chuck it at the mutant Ixi plushie, who promptly scrambles after it as you grab hold of the 25 NP tag and yank it free from the pile of stuffed neopets.
Your eyes open wide as you see what you are holding before you. It is the most beautiful plushie you have ever seen. You cradle it within your arms as you walk over to the counter where a gothic Ixi with dark shades is charging customers. “What do you have there?” asks the goth Ixi. You hand him just the tag and the 25 NP and quickly walk out of the store. “That one is not for sale!” yells the Ixi as you continue to run through the mall out the door.
As you exit the doors of the mall and walk into the sunlight, you feel relieved. Fresh air, blue skies, flying plushie Draiks…. FLYING PLUSHIE DRAIKS?! Your eyes go wide as you notice the plushie you have just bought is flying around in the air in front of you. “Freedom!” it yells in glee as it lands back in your arms.
“Hello! My name is Comtrya, the plushie Draik! Thank you for saving me! I guess you can be my momma!” she cries as she snuggles into your chest. You blink and decide, Hey, why not! and take her home.
But before you go, you take one look back over your shoulder at the mall. You look through the glass and across the food courtyard. You think your eyes are playing tricks on you as that Plushie Emporium starts to disappear, being replaced with a shoe customization store. You shrug and take your new princess home with you, forever.
This is how I met Comtrya long ago; maybe you'll be so lucky to find your own plushie in the Plushie Emporium. But I warn you, choose well or you will be sorry...
