|Bugs 'a Plenty

Well... it all started a while ago...
My cousin, vyala, discovered a petpetpet latched to the next of her Gallion a while ago. She was horrified by the mere idea of such a pest attatched to her dear Adji, so she asked me to get rid of it. She didn't want to touch it and figured that, since I had a bug for a Petpet, I'd be fine removing it for her.
So I went over to have a look. It was kind of hard to find the thing because it was so little... and even Adji's only barely the size of one of my paws. But I managed to pull it out and set it on a kleenex off to the side.
Vyala was relieved, but Adji went into hysterics! Apparently, the little Gallion actually liked that little bug which, after getting a close look, appeared to be a Larnikin. But Vyala wouldn't have it. She thought the Larnikin was the ugliest petpetpet there was and she thought that, if Adji had to have a petpetpet, it should be something cuter.
So, in order to calm her wailing Gallion, she went out and bought a Veespa. This made Adji happy and she quickly fell in love with her new little friend.
Then I asked Vyala what she was going to do with the Larnikin and she just screwed her face up in disgust and suggested I squish it. But... I couldn't really do that - the poor thing never harmed anyone. I asked her if I could take it home until I figured out something to do with it and she said I could.
So for the past month or so, I've been trying to find a home for this Larnikin... No one seemed to want it! Everyone wants a Mootix or a Flankin... so one wants the fat bug.
I was just about to give up when I woke up this morning and couldn't find it anywhere! I panicked, hoping that Simon hadn't done anything to it and started looking all over for it. I eventually went to my Petpet, Scaraby and asked him if he'd seen it.
Sure enough, there was the Larnikin, camped out on Scaraby's back looking as happy as ever. Why didn't I think of it before? The Larnikin and Scaraby would be such a good match! So, I guess if they don't mind being together, I'll just let the Larnikin stay with Scaraby and me.
I've decided to call it Gawain after a real-world hero that Rose told me about... though I'm not sure if Gawain is a name suitable for its personality. It will just have to do for now. It was a pretty nice suprise on my 3rd birthday, though :}
