Story: There were once two female teenagers, which were given the names, Nyan and Aoi. Nyan was an upbeat neko, well known by her blazing red hair color. Aoi on the other hand, is a timid human, consisting of icy blue hair. In Aoi's hand, grasped a "Puffy the Penguin" plushie she had recieved from Nyan as a present, many years ago. The two were taking a stroll down the vast park area on a sunny day. Suddenly, something of interest caught Nyan's eye. A hole, engraved into the ground. She squealed with joy and instantly took the other's hand, running for the hole. It was nothing like they've seen before. Her eyes sparkled in anticipation, insisting that they'd go down to investigate. It was obvious that Aoi rejected. But Nyan knew. She knew her friend too well. And so her body flung into the air and down into the depths of the whole, dragging poor Aoi along. As they descended down, screams of both emotions echoed through. Nyan with the screams of joy and Aoi with her screams of terror. The neko's body was in it's diving position as for the other's whose was embracing her penguin for dear life. Before hitting the ground, it caught both their attention. Two girls, standing in place and wearing the most out of fashion attire. Well, that was what it seemed to Nyan and Aoi, of course. However, one girl, in a full pink and purple outfit, had a wide grin plastered onto her face. The other with a face of shock, instantly popping itself into place. Both Nyan and Aoi fell on top of the terrorized girl, leaving her in pain and paralyzed shock. Nyan laughing caused the other mysterious girl to laugh along as well. Aoi and the girl in pain, both stayed like broken statues, eyes in confusion. After long moments of staying on the ground, they raised themselves up and watched each other in curiosity. First to speak was Nyan, asking who the two were. The two were named Zuzu and Kuro. For awhile, they began exchanging basic info about each other. Surprisingly, Nyan was just like Zuzu and Aoi just like Kuro. Having things in common, both Zuzu and Kuro guided Nyan and Aoi in their world. The world of which was named "PaigeeDraw in Wonderland." All of them knew, that they would become good friends in the future. And even with new friends, the pair would be besties forever. No matter what.

Drawing Title: Best Friends
Age of Artist: na
Aoi, Nyan, and Kuro were the three legendary goddesses that created the island of harmony, or the island of Arlagon. Aoi was the Mistress of the Waters, Nyan was the Master of Fires, and Kuro was the Singer of the Greens (plants). They had originally been three ordinary girls, ‘lucky’ orphans that the villagers claimed had been sent to the peninsula on purpose by who knows what, set on the own ordinary paths, until the place where they lived on started to mutate drastically. The air clogged, the waters soiled. The plants died so easily, and the fire killing. As a result, the three best friends, who each had an ancient relic/heirloom that had been born with them and were said to have magical value, got together, took the responsibility of finding new land on themselves and went in search of a place or an island that could save the town.
Many weeks later after their departure from the peninsula they called home, Aoi was 200 miles up north searching from a sleek boat that was charmed with a blue orb so that the boat would never collapse beneath her. Kuro was 200 miles down south where there had been stories of beautiful lush grasses; however, all she kept finding was barren land, and through all the walking, she kept a mage staff with a green orb on the top that she used to balance herself on. The staff was charmed to never allow oneself to fall down or fatigue. Nyan was 200 miles below ground, mining her way underground next to a volcano looking for a pathway to a ‘perfect’ place. Her dice board, which was something of a compass, had a red orb always floating upward toward the sky in the north direction; her board was charmed to protect her and everything within a 7 mile radius.
With no sense of time, all three friends made a huge discovery. Aoi found a clam-shaped item of the same color as her blue orb, Kuro found a flower-blossom-shaped item of the same color as her green orb, and Nyan found a fire casket item of the same color as her red orb. All of them placed their own orbs in the center of their curious discoveries, and they all fit perfectly. After a few seconds of hesitant waiting, beautiful figures wafted in the shape of smoke out of the orbs. A mermaid-looking woman of impressive beauty leapt out of Aoi’s orb. The mermaid said: “You dear child, what have come to summon me? My appearance must be the consequence of the most utter disastrous of demises… Please do tell me dear child… I am so sorry.” A lady with flowing green hair interwoven with vines wearing a shawl of willow leaves came out of Kuro’s orb. The lady embraced Kuro the moment she came out and exclaimed: “Something has happened… shhhh…. But what has happened I do not have an iota of knowledge. Tell me, brave girl, before you cry out into tears.” A short-haired, flaming woman with passionate eyes and aura leapt quickly out of Nyan’s orb. The woman stretched vigorously and quickly lit torches around the underground cave and then took notice of Nyan’s desperate but hopeful face: “We have little time to be idle, young one. Tell the truth like nothing else matters. We have little time to speak, and little time to stay inactive. Do not cry, save the waters for later. I dislike seeing steam.” Regretting that she may have talked to bitterly, she ran her hand over Nyan’s head to reassure her.
These appearances of minimal hope all happened at exactly the same time. With the help of Neah, the mermaid woman who turned out the be the goddess of water, Anze, the plant-shawled woman who turned out to be the goddess of greens, and Rei, the fiery, short-tempered woman who said she bore the title goddess of fire, the three girls were able to travel back much more quickly to the place they had left many weeks ago. The golden gate that had stood faithfully from the island’s colonization was down from 18,000 to a meager 60; Aoi, Kuro, and Nyan looked at the disaster beyond with shock and remorse. The three goddesses peered from their respectful orbs, wearing the same distraught expressions. Suddenly, they all heard a cry, accompanied with some other voices that seemed to be wailing for help; the girls did not hear too much noise, the voices seemed to be ringing softly from the other side of the island. Without hesitation, Aoi, Kuro, and Nyan raced into the demolished structures. Neah, Anze, and Rei burst out of the orbs once more and enveloped the girls in a protective cover. They weaved in and out of broken windows searching for another inkling of the hopeless-sounding voices. Finally, they arrived at what was once called the Peach Sand Beach, a place where people used to come to relax in the powdery sand the color of pink peaches. The six looked over the place with sadness and desperation; the place was littered and the sand colored a muddy tan with black splotches of tar everywhere. In their careful observations, they spotted a mound of sand that piled up against the side of the Furnace Cliff. The sand seemed to be constantly sliding farther and farther away from the mound, and some cone-shaped figure seemed to be poking out. Neah dived into the water and came back up promptly and said: “There are vibrations from the land… the fish tell me there could be something mobile buried below the earth.” The girls glanced at each other and traded determined looks. Neah, Anze, and Rei requested: “We can remove the earth without perhaps harming anything beneath it. Don’t force yourself for manual work; all of you have already done enough.”
While Aoi, Kuro, and Nyan stood with the orbs, they decided to make thing easier for the goddesses by removing obstructive things. Rei burned a circle around the place to dig, Anze coaxed underground roots to grow out of the way and retract, and Neah captured large amounts of dirt in large water bubbles. Rei burned anything that could be burnt. Luckily, she left alone the telescope/cone-looking object she found; she though the object was very interesting and peculiar and decided to leave it alone just in case it was important. After a long while of digging an enormous cavity into the sand, the three girls observed that the bottom of the cavity was quivering. Anze wove an enormous net around the pit, and Neah gently lifted a last bubble carefully down back into the cavity. With a small gulping sound, the girls and the goddesses saw tens if not hundreds of people staring up at them. Aoi, Nyan and Kuro all started to water in their eyes. Neah, Anze, and Rei exchanged sympathetic glances and started to wrap gentle tendrils around the people inside the cavity. The girls called to the panicked people being lifted up back to the ground: “Don’t move or squirm! If you relax, you will be on ground very soon!” The girls helped heal the lost-and found villagers with what they had. The civilians recognized the three girls and were very thankful although extremely tired from kicking and stomping and shouting all day and night for help. The south part of the island, where all the villagers had gathered to prepare for the Moonlit Night Ceremony, had flipped almost inside out when the full ‘tear’ moon had come. The Moonlit Night Ceremony required people to bring and set torches around in the shape of a fireball so that the goddess of waters, Neah, and the goddess of fire, Rei, could come together. The ceremony also required a huge woven net made of vines and the most fragrant, most beautiful flowers along with fresh and unripe fruit to be hung from the Furnace Cliff to Iced Peak to the Stone Sharance Tree. Hanging this final net symbolized the friendliness and trust of the goddess of green who help bind and keep the three goddesses together forever. After the torches had been set, and net had been hung, something had gone terribly wrong. When there should have been a full moon with clear sky out, there was only shadows and no ‘tear’ light from the moon. The ‘tear’ moon that only appeared once a half century never shown a shaft of tear light down onto the net and torches and dancing villagers during the ceremony. However, there seemed to have been a flaw. Instead of the almost legendary tear moon, no one had heard the legendary monster the kraken approach. As the monster swept the land and roared and scratched with all of its fury, the net protected the villagers from being washed away by the waters and the torches helped keep the villagers from dying of the cold of the kraken’s cold aura. The villagers then saw a miracle. Many claimed that moments after the kraken had approached the shore, the tear moon burst out of the shady clouds and struck out at the kraken. The kraken pounded the land, and the myth Lady of Lunae had come true. Many people stood in total shock and fear of this regal ghost of a woman who floated down from within the tear moon instead of the goddess of water. The woman had glanced at the impressive net protectively encircling the people, and the now bobbing torches that floated in the air near shivering bodies. She swept one hand, and stakes of diamonds with enigmatic silver carvings drove deep into the earth in a perfect circle ringing all the villagers. They had all felt the earth in the circle starting to move, and within a few seconds, the earth was turned over and the villagers were trapped in the ditch. They never knew how much time had passed, until they had heard a huge thump on the ceiling of the ditch. However, that was all that passed until they had looked up to see the sky once more after who knows how long of a time. The girls and goddesses looked down at the ground, intrigued.
They waited in silence until everyone was asleep and then sat on the shore. Neah apologized first: “I… didn’t know what happened… all I know was that something went wrong. Aoi noticed a tear forming out of the beautiful mermaid’s eye. Neah started to sob: “I was never to tell the truth… that I was powerless by the same force that bound this island with disasters. I couldn’t do anything… but I didn’t have enough contemplation. Aoi brought me here for my first time in many years… this shore was where I was born. I was deemed a curse by Sirena, my mother and the goddess of water before me, and thus I was told. I never had any person really be grateful for who I am… to many I am a rotten produce of the waters that I rule”, she hiccupped, “I have one request, Aoi. One request that you may be able to bring the villagers from this cursed island and maybe bring them to another island that exists or another island you create. Make sure that this island isn’t curse by an imbecile like me.” Aoi nodded forcefully. She took Neah’s pale, trembling hands and squeezed them: “Neah, leave them to me.” Rei and Anze, along with Kuro and Nyan, added their agreement. Aoi added: “Let’s all sleep for now; we can start moving in the morning.” The next day, Aoi, Nyan, and Kuro broke news to the village: “We have to move.” They ignored the shocked gasps; this plan had deadened their will as well. “It is a choice: we will not force anyone to stay. To those who will travel with us, we first warn you: this is a complete risk of a mission. You can put your future and everything on the line for a future and everything or you can stay here with a prerecorded future and many lost things. It is a choice, we will repeat: no one will be forced to go. To those who will leave with us, pack everything you will need. We will leave two hours before the sun reaches the zenith.”
When the time of departure had arrived, almost all of the villagers had grouped themselves in the plaza with needed and necessary belongings and food, waiting for Aoi, Nyan, and Kuro. When the three girls appeared with their own sacks, they set them down and looked sadly over all the beaten-down villagers. The girls looked at each other: they had reached a consensus. They looked down at the ground and then bowed lowly and grandly. The villagers surveyed the girls’ behavior with curiosity. Nyan, seeing the population’s confusion, said: “We apologize for this situation… Aoi, Kuro, and I never wanted to come to such a magnitude of a decision; we never thought that this would be that serious. However, since you are all ready for the mission ahead of us, Aoi, Kuro, and I will try to make this journey as painless as possible. Now let us go forth unafraid.” Turning her back to the villagers, Nyan faced Aoi and Kuro and sighed: “Let’s just hope we made the right decision.” And so they started to walk.
It turned out that a lot of the villagers had brought ‘moon stakes’ with them. They dubbed these nicknames onto the miracle-like diamond stakes that Lady of Lunae had sent down to the earth when she had seen the villagers in danger. It also turned out that the diamond stakes were another part of the legend of the Lady of Lunae and no one had ever seen the real thing before; the last time one appeared was in picture in books. With these two ‘turning-out-to-bes’, the villagers, the girls, and the goddesses were able to survive for very long on the trading of the stakes. Many other people of other civilizations the villagers met were enchanted by the events that villagers had experienced and had also some sort of belief in Lady of Lunae, and in the end were mesmerized by the sheer beauty and clarity of the stakes. As a result, two stakes (measurements: 2’3”x2” each) could be traded for six loaves of bread, two carts of potatoes, two oxen, and generous blessing. This went on for a very long time, considering how long and how much time and distance the villagers had to travel. Luckily, there was always an abundance of diamond stakes: the villagers found a way to ‘roast’ the stake so that they could pick off molten parts to join to stakes together. With this technique, a lot of very sturdy weapons and staffs were made. As a magical bonus, the etched symbols from the stake made enchanted protection spells for the weapons and spell-casting abilities for those who could use magic with the staffs. However, even with all the new materials and food, the villagers and girls slowly did get frustrated with the minimal fruition of their journey.
One night, after almost a year of walking and trading and forging, the girls and the goddesses called all the villagers to sit around. Aoi broke the silence: “We will make the land.” The villagers picked their heads up in surprise. “We will make the land with the goddesses’ help. For all this time, we have had barely any dangerous situations; that situation itself seems too good to be true. It is because we have had the goddesses by our sides the whole entire time.” Aoi nodded to Nyan and Kuro and took her blue orb out. It had matured to a violet-indigo hue since they had left the peninsula; there were holographic starfish clinging to the inside of the orb. Nyan took out her red orb. It had upgraded to a golden, ripe hue of a slightly dulled sun. Within the sphere, fires danced around freely even though enclosed by the space. Kuro lifted her orb out towards the population as well. The orb had taken on rainbow, vibrant colors: golden sparks of magical lilies filled the bottom of the sphere, blue morning glories wrapped themselves inside out between the lily stalks, pink sakura blooms filled a small portion of the ball, and other life forms in the shape of plants stalked the inside of the magical greenhouse orb. The villagers looked at the orbs in awe, and they all knew that only such beautiful objects could have been created with the support of magic. “Come out please,” was the request out of the girls’ mouths to their own respectful orbs. With some hesitation, Neah dragged herself slowly out of the coolly colored orbs of starfish, Anze peeked out of her shawl of leaves and flowers with reluctance, and Rei looked out of her flamed scarf with less passion than was usually expected of her. The villagers started to bow deeply to the goddesses immediately. Neah, Anze, and Rei caught them mid-bow with gentles licks of their element, and bowed to the villagers before they people could try to show their respect once more. “We apologize for your current and past predicaments!” exclaimed the goddesses. Neah lifted her beautiful head and added: “I am the cause of this. All of this.”
Luckily enough for Neah, the villagers listened to her about her curse and how everything came about. She was also lucky enough that the villagers forgave her for her curse (which meant that they had forgiven the fact that she was the cause for their almost year-long ‘excursion’). With the hard part over and Neah much more relieved that she had finally gotten the truth out there, Aoi resumed her declaration. She exclaimed: “Over the course of the months in which we have travelled, Nyan, Kuro, and I have been able to learn techniques, spells, and other magical abilities. We know how to transfer energy from nature into ourselves, use the goddesses’ power ‘reservoir’ when we are out of our own power, and use our specific elements to our advantages. Yesterday, I talked to Nyan and Kuro and Neah, Anze, and Rei: we all debated about creating a place using our newfound abilities. It is possible.” She waited for voices to subside. “This idea seems outrageous not just to you, but also me, Nyan, and Kuro. However, this is how we will repay you for all your work. This process will take a whole day at least; I also cannot guarantee our physical beings, any physical being of us six, being able to survive the amount of magic that will be needed for the spell.”
At dawn the next day, Nyan sat at the shore of another scenic beach near the place the villagers were camping and took a deep breath. She inhaled, and then exhaled. Aoi came over and laid a hand on Nyan’s shoulder and said: “This is what we were born to do, right? We all saw Lady of- Mother, yesterday night in our dreams… I finally have a parent to yearn for,” Aoi paused thoughtfully, “Nyan onee-san (older sister), we can all see Mother now.” Kuro walked over, golden hair streaked with honey blonde and warm jade, and smiled: “Mother is as beautiful as I imagined her; I just never thought she would be Lady of Lunae.” Nyan stood up to join Aoi and Kuro’s statures and sadly said: “Mother told me something yesterday night after you two lift the yume (dream) arena. There is high possibility that if we are to perform the spell, we might not even live through it. At least, we will never see each other again.” A single tear fell out of Nyan’s eye before it fizzled out on her cheek. “We cannot show any sadness. We cannot accept any pity, onee-san” replied Aoi. “We have just found that as much as we are different in elemental abilities, thoughts, and emotions, we are sisters, and before that, we were best friends: found together, born together, and grown together.” Kuro nodded in complete agreement. She added: “Aoi is right. Since we have always been together our whole entire life, we have no reasons to fear for our separation. Remember when we first went looking for a place to live? We were all separated, right? But you see, we never really did feel so extremely alone. We were always together.”
The girls took a breath. The goddesses looked at the ground sadly. The villagers looked on with curiosity and some hesitance. Aoi started to lead a chorus chant. Kuro and Nyan joined in. The goddesses looked at each other and gulped. Then they each took a deep breath and joined with their sweet highs and rolling lows to the chant. They started to circle and take little steps in a small dance. Their movements got quicker and swifter. Because they were in the water, the liquid started to whirl all around them. The girls chanted the words louder, and the goddesses sang more fluidly.
The villagers looked on in wonder at the magical dance being performed in front of them. Suddenly, Aoi leaped into the center of the circle. She sang a song of water (it had no words but the villagers could assume what she was doing) with gliding moves. She waltzed out. Nyan danced in, and she sang passionately and brazenly about the movements of fire. Kuro exchanged places with Nyan. She used gently budding movements to show growth of plants, and after she walked out of the circle, the three goddesses stepped in at the same time. By now, the circle of water around them was very large and they had all drifted a long distance from shore. The goddesses then flew like a stream of glitter to somewhere near the horizon. They were still singing and the villagers could still hear them. Suddenly, their voices stopped and a great column of energy burst out of where they had been. The girls watched sadly as three small sparks of red, green, and blue encircled the column. Aoi, Nyan, and Kuro turned back one more time to look at the villagers. Many of them were crying, but all of them were still watching the girls. Aoi, Nyan, and Kuro whispered and mouthed: “Goodbye.” and the villagers all burst out in fresh tears.
The girls headed toward the column, and they walked on the surface of the water. They could feel their hands and ends of hairs disappearing, and their legs becoming weaker and non-existent. Aoi could feel tears coming out of her eyes, but she kept on walking. The same was with Nyan and Kuro. They walked for a while, until they stood in front of the glowing column. They held hands and chanted: “ I-ta-ra-shi-to-chi-to-ji-n-se-i, i-ta-ra-shi-ka-na-shi-mi-to-ko-fu-ku. Sa-i-se-i!!” They closed their eyes in apprehension.
The next moment was not pain. It was happiness. Aoi, Nyan, and Kuro opened their eyes and blinked. They were in little sphere prisons of their own inside the column, but they could still hear each other. After a long and awkward silence, three entities flew over. They were the goddesses. Aoi, Nyan, and Kuro smiled in delight. The goddesses also smiled shyly. They spoke: “We have done our part in the many hundred centuries we have lived. We will create this new land with you for this world. However, the world cannot be without a water, fire, and greens goddess. Since most of our life energy will be used to make this land of life, there will be a little excess of our power. For that, we will combine them with your elemental power respectively. You three will be sent to guard the island from afar. Since we have started this process, let’s try to make this succeed.” The girls nodded, with tears trickling down their cheeks. The goddesses spoke one more time: “Just don’t forget, we will always be with you, and you will always be together.” They smiled sadly and backed away. Three colored circles enveloped the three goddesses, hiding them from the girls’ view. All of a sudden, the circles started to glow even more intensely, and burst with power. The little glowing orbs of power from the goddesses floated toward the vortex of the column, but a few drifted over to the girls. The small blue orbs merged themselves with Aoi’s body, the small red orbs merged themselves with Nyan’s body, and the small green orbs merged themselves with Kuro’s body.
The girls exchanged a frightening but warm glance. They mouthed to each other: “We will be together.” and laid their heads back. In a flash, Aoi found herself at the bottom of the ocean. She looked around confusingly. After a restless moment of searching, it dawned on her that she would probably never see Nyan and Kuro again. She began to cry…
The next day, Aoi looked up toward where the sky should have been, but a large mass reached down at her. As her hands felt a small tendril of the large mass, she realized that the tendril was made of tender but strong soil. For the first time in hours, she smiled a tiny bit. With every growing millimeter of her smile, she realized that from then, she and the small part of Neah that had been given to her would dedicate their life to protecting the island and trying to see Nyan and Kuro again.
Years and years passed. Aoi had been stone-hard resistant against her sorrowful feelings she wanted to let go. But one day, she noticed a small glowing orb reaching toward her. She reached her own hand toward it and saw its details. A small glowing colorful heart was inside the orb. Aoi could feel her own tears mix in with the water around her again. She touched the tip of her index finger toward it. She felt Nyan and Kuro. She felt true proof that they were going to always be together.

Drawing Title: Encounters in Winter
Age of Artist: 15
Characters: Leigh, Aoi
Story: Leigh sat on a crumbling stone wall near the edge of her garden and rubbed her hands together to keep warm. Her steamy breath billowed from her mouth and roseinto the fridgid air, mingling with the fog and dense frost that hung above. The scene was blanketed in a frenzy of white snowflakes, falling quicky under the weight oncoming pallid fragile frames that flitted and fluttered, spinning widly before reaching the ground where they dissolved into the cold earth, their damp remains mingling with the dewy grass and wilted leaves of winter. Leigh clutched her sides in an attempt to hold herself together, she felt she resembled a snowflake that had fallen, shattered into a million pieces and seep into the breathing soil.
Leigh's best friend Aoi had moved away the day before without so much as a goodbye. Leigh sat still, her body was ridgid, mimiking the slender trees that stood in the garden. She thought silently to herself, the only sound to fill the air was her placid breathing, constant and calm. Darkness fell slowly, it was almost unnoticeable at first, the garden's desent into obscurity. The sun had been doused, plunged into a sea of dark navy blues and purples. Each wave of darkness was like octopus ink, spreading evenly across the horizon. Each wave brought a number of stars, scattered like pebbles on a beach. Her shivering subsided by thoughts of warmer, happier times.
A rustling in the distance startled Leigh slightly, she cautiously treaded on the snow, She was greeted by a bizarre sight. Two penguins, one larger than the other were traipsing around the garden. They seemed quite content in the midst of snow, stars and the shining moon. On seeing Leigh, they waddled towards her, with a funny gait, leaning side to side as they went. The largest penguin lifted its wing, perched on it, was a small wooden doll of Aoi. Leigh had thrown it out of her window when she had heard that Aoi was leaving. Leigh remembered how a boy named Kyo had admired them, and made wooden dolls of the girls in woodshop. How they had giggled on the walk home, and swapped dolls to always have their best friend at their side, no matter what.. Leigh grasped the wooden doll tenderly, and brushed the snow from it. Without a word, she turned and began to walk towards her house. She didn't need to be upset, Aoi had not said goodbye to Leigh, not because she didnt care..but perhaps because she knew she would always be there..

PRO CONTEST ENTRY BY Thao, Bui Thanh
|PaigeeDraw Best Friends Contest|
Drawing Title: Best Friend Forever
Age of Artist: 12
Characters: Aoi, Nyan and Haru
Story: What you see here is a drawing of a puzzle of the three best friend, Nyan, Aoi and Haru. And you also realize that all the puzzle pieces are all connected together, and there're no missing pieces either. And three of these friends are eating doughnuts. So, what I'm trying to say here is best friends always get together and take care of each other like a puzzle pieces and doughnuts. To form a perfect puzzle, you have to connect all the puzzle pieces together perfectly. To make a doughnut, you should be careful and connect the 2 heads of the doughnut's mixture it to form a perfect doughnut.
