An idea that started to grow out of control...ending with this mess lols~
The 2nd picture is the one I'm using the other 2 are extras:
Thanksgiving was always a festive day that everyone looked forward to. Distant family members gathering for a reunion, the festivals and parades, and of course the giant feast that everyone’s been salivating after the whole year- the one day where you can stuff yourself to your heart (or stomach)’s content. Yup, everyone always looked forward to it…..everyone except the cook that is.
During this time frame, EVERYONE that is in charge of cooking this feast, had to scramble about the shops as they fight for their ingredients (pvp style). Even worst, this year, I was requested to get a wild turkey, cooked the old-fashioned way for the feast. Yup, none of those easy to farm, incubated turkey eggs, that were ready in like 44 minutes.
(Seriously!! O.O only 44 minutes!!!)
Of course I refused at first, i mean spit roasting a turkey atop of an open fire??!!!?? Imagine the effort!!
Then, as if knowing which buttons to press to aggravate me, they raise an eyebrow and mockingly questioned upon my cooking authority, issuing a silent challenge.
Annoyed and not wanting to back down, I declare, “challenge accepted!!” with a scowl.
……….Only to mentally kick myself an hour later, as I prowled through Sukemo Bluff as silently as possible stalking a wild turkey.
I quickly launched an attack on it, and it’s HP dropped after a while, and at last!! It was captured!!! I hurriedly rushed toward the BBQ roasting flame in Starglade, not wanting to wait in line during rush hour…..only to find out it was a…..Gobbler???!!
“Noooooo!!”, I cried aloud in despair. All those hours of waiting!! And for what???!!!
….Still…..the Gobbler IS a rather close relative of the thanksgiving turkey….surely no one would notice the difference….yupyup….one can only hope...
As i was about to wrestle it atop of the roasting fire, the Gobbler started flapping wildly, as it desperately chirped, “Please! Spare me!!”.
“Sorry bird,” I murmured with a grimace, “ My honor’s on the line!”
“Nooo!!! please!!”, it squawked, “I’ll make it worth your effort!!!”
After much begging, arguing and compromise later,with the live fowl, it was decided that he would become my servant ..er….pet. It also begrudgingly agreed to help lure the elusive turkey chicks into the roasting fire as a thanksgiving turkey replacement.
**(Using Gobbler to Lure Turkey Chicks!!)
After awhile, at last!! the thanksgiving feast was complete!! As everyone murmured praise, and started settling in to do our round of thanks for this year, I started remembering about the poor Gobbler.
Feeling guilty, I excusing myself, and headed to the corner of my vault, where the fowl was miserably mopping, tucked away inside. I quietly dragged it out, and told it to follow me while it looked at me fearfully.
A while later, we were back at the Sukemo Bluffs. I took the chain off its neck as it looked at me, confuzzled.
“There, you’re free,” I said as it looked at me befuddled, while I turned and head towards the direction of Starglade.
As I was almost at the portal, I heard a shrill squawk of a “Thank You!”.
…..And thus began a new tradition of Gobbler pardoning in Starglade.
