Pet Name: Kernaz
At the beginning of her adulthood, Kernaz tried lots of different jobs -- she's been a librarian, a salesperson in a supermarket, a cashier in a fashion store and an attendant at the Neolodge -- but all of them ended up being tiring and frustrating, never lasting for very long. You see, she wanted to do her best, but she also wanted to stay at home napping softly in the afternoon sun. It's just the type of neopet Kernie is, and it couldn't be avoided. One cannot fight against its nature just like that, and she was simply not made to sell clothes, lend books or book guests.
It was her friend Hev who came up with the idea first. In one of their afternoon tea parties, Kernie was busy serving the baked goodies she was so proud of and making sure everyone was enjoying their sweets, and Hevis said: "you know what, Kernie? Those are good. You know that. They are real good. You could work at the Neopian Bakery or something, couldn't you?"
It was a pretty good idea, except Kernie had an even better one. She had her kitchen. Her nice, little, comfortable kitchen. She liked her kitchen. Why not bake there, where she could be her own boss and wouldn't even have to commute? And so it was. Nowadays, she wakes up every morning and starts preparing her pies, cakes, cookies and sweet croissants. In the afternoon, after her lunch and ciesta, she goes to her customers' houses on her bike (a special poogle bike) delivering their orders and chit chatting.
Talking to people was never a problem to the jelly poogle, and she can be effortlessly likeable to anyone without ever thinking about it. In that way, the whole neighborhood came to know and cherish her. When her bicycle comes dingling through the streets, a variety of all kinds of pets counts their neopoints and starts going out their doors one by one. "Hey, how is it going little Clara?", "Oh hello there Mrs. Binks, today I've got a fresh bunch of your favorites!", "Here, take your cookies, Mr. Bots, how are your children doing?", and like this goes the poogle, all through the district.
On the weekends, there is always one or two tea parties at her place, and needless to say the food is supreme. May there be five, may there be fifty guests, it does not matter, Kernie is always making sure everyone is happy and, the most important, has their bellies pleasantly full. All afternoon her friends stay, chat, drink and eat. And when they are gone, Kernaz smiles, satisfied to go to sleep and then start all over again tomorrow.
And this is it, every week and every month. She enjoys her simple, peaceful life, and sighs at the thought of her naps in the varanda chair. No adventures, mysteries, plots around here, not for this neopet. After all, as her grandfather once told her and she always took to heart, it is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life.
