Story Eight Hundred Five Ends March 23rd

"I think that should be enough for today," Illusen mumbled happily to herself as she removed a tray of cookies from the oven. The wonderful scent of freshly baked cookies wafted in the air as she carried them over to a table.

The earth Faerie was so used to the recipe by now. With deft hands, she decorated the cookies with mint cream, making sure to add a little extra since it was a special day.

It was a day that was dedicated solely to her, after all, and she wanted to thank the Neopians sincerely for that.

Every year on that day, Illusen would have double or even triple the number of Neopets visiting her, eager to fulfill her quests. The Faerie would give out more cookies than the usual days; she would reward the newbies with her famed Illusen's Cream Cookies regardless of whether they passed or failed her quest, resulting in her supply of cookies diminishing at an alarming rate.

After several years of experience of that particular day, she was finally able to gauge the approximate number of cookies to prepare so that she needn't have to rush to the kitchen to make new batches and let the poor Neopets wait with salivating mouths. As Illusen finished the final touches to her last batch, something was nagging at the back of her mind.

Hordes of Neopets would be queuing to receive her quests well before dawn arrived. However, the sun had already risen but no one had visited her glade yet.

"It doesn't seem right."

The Faerie cleared her kitchen quickly and washed her hands before heading out to the front door to see what was going on ...

... and was met with nothing out of the ordinary. Which was completely out of the ordinary! Neopets should have been lined up as far as the eye could see; awaiting to complete her quests on today of all days.

An unwelcome thought creeped into the back of Illusen's mind. There was no way that everyone could have forgotten... No, Illusen mentally shook herself. There was no way. There had to be an alternative explanation. Illusen glanced around for someone she could ask where all the neopets could have gone off to. There could be an emergency, afterall, the neopets might need her help! She spotted a blue Ixi trotting nearby. She fluttered over to investigate.

"Hey! You!" Illusen called. The Ixi looked around at her call, before spotting Illusen. The Ixi trotted over slowly.

"Illusen! Can I help you?" the Ixi asked.

She smiled kindly at the Ixi.

"Hello, dear. How are you on this wonderful day?" Illusen asked with a wink.

The Ixi stared at Illusen like she'd grown another head.

"Is this a trick question?" The Ixi cautiously replied.

"No!" Illusen snapped, before calming herself. So what if this one Ixi forgot about her holiday? She needed to keep her cool in order to get to the bottom of this, so that all the neopets could come and get some of the delicious cookies she'd baked.

"Why would you think that was a trick question?" she asked.

The Ixi shrugged. "I guess I just didn't think you of all people would be too excited about Jhudora Day."

"Jhudora Day?" Illusen asked.

Now it was Illusen's turn to look at the Ixi like he had grown another head. Jhudora Day? That didn't make any sense. Jhudora's holiday was in winter, when things were still cold and dark, like her heart. Hers was right at the start of spring, when things were getting green.

"Yeah, it's Jhudora Day." The Ixi said, "I figured you'd be taking the day off."

"I... I see...?" Illusen said, a bit confused. Did she get the date wrong? No, that wasn't possible. Just, why would he think this was Jhudora Day?

"Yeah, you know. The fourth day of Awakening is your day, Illusen." The Ixi said, "The seventeenth day of Running is yours."

Well, the dates were right, but the holidays were mixed up. But the fact that no one else was here implied that it wasn't just the Ixi who was mixed up. But what caused the mix up in the first place?

"I must have been busy and forgot." Illusen said.

"Well, it just happened recently." The Ixi replied.

Now that was new information. Illusen's eyes lit up when the Ixi said that.

"What happened recently?" The earth Faerie said.

"Oh, I thought you knew. Cronjobba announced the change a few days ago."

"Oh, of course he did," the faerie replied.

Illusen had no idea who this Cronjobba was, but she was certainly going to get to the bottom of things. This was her day, and no one was going to get in her way.

"Do you know where I could find him?" Illusen asked.

"Umm ... you mean her?" The Ixi had an insulted look on his face, as if the earth faerie had just mocked someone dear to him. "The great Cronjobba is seated on the throne in Meridell. She might allow you to be in her presence if you come bearing a joke."

"Indeed," the faerie responded, giving the Ixi a few cookies for his help. "Thank you very much."

Illusen was quite alarmed. First, her special day was taken away from her. Now Skarl was not on the throne? How could she have missed so much in one day?

The earth faerie flew to the castle in a hurry. A line was forming at the gate; visitors awaiting to see their leader. Illusen could hear as pets of all species rehearsed their funniest comedic material. While they were busy, she sneaked to the front of the line, making sure that she would be seen as soon as the gates opened.

After a few moments, the bridge was lowered and the gates were opened. A guard swiftly escorted Illusen to the throne. A beautiful voice pierced through the silence.

"Tell me your joke ..."

Illusen stared at the regal figure that sat on what used to be Skarl's throne. Cronjobba was a white skeith adorned with the finest robes that even Fyora would be jealous of...if she cared something so shallow. The Skeith was concentrated on the sparkling violet rings on her fingers, assuming Illusen was another Neopet attempting to cheer her up. Illusen looked around and noticed that the guards and servants, who were usually so happy to see her, did not even spare a glance in her way.

"Excuse me...?" Illusen spoke.

Cronjobba turned to her direction and frowned. "What is it that you want, Earth Faerie?" she spoke with a drawl.

Illusen's face turned scarlet at the disrespect she was faced with. Even though Illusen was one of the more humble faeries, she still expected a bit of respect from the Neopians, royalty or not. Even Skarl, the most laziest Neopet she knew, always announced Illusen's arrival with dignity.

"...Your majesty..." Illusen spoke calmly with a gentle smile. "I seem to be a bit lost on where I am."

Cronjobba laughed shrilly, causing her subjects to follow. Illusen kept calm, knowing fully well something worrying was happening.

"You Earth Faeries are so silly!" Cronjobba spoke between shrill laughs. "Now, that was a funny joke!" Cronjobba motioned to her servants on her side with her fingers. The servants hurried over with a extravagant robe towards Illusen. "Take it!" Cronjobba said. "You earned it."

Before Illusen could say anything, she was scurried off with her prize to outside of the gates.

"What's happening?" Illusen muttered to herself.

"Illusen!" A voice whispered behind her.

Illusen turned around.
