"Aaapuulagee essepted. Razeth ees mai name," Razeth said, puffing out his chest. Thistle restrained his irritation towards the hatchling. "End me dunn hert addaw." He proclaimed. Crocus smiled slightly, and nodded. The hatchling then asked him his name. "Oh, I emm Crocus." He said, nodding. "Guud to meet yuu in a freendly wayy theese time, Razooth. I deedn't wahnt tu hurt yuu yeesterdey." He explained. He then glanced over as his fathers walked up to them, staring down at them. "Hello boys, it's time to go. Were you better today?" Evergreen asked, seeming a bit nervous and glancing at their grandfather. Crocus wasn't sure what he was nervous about. "They were very good today, Elm. They even apologized to the hatchling they fought yesterday." Hickory said approvingly. Elm looked at him, then down at the young Snaptrapper. "That's good to hear. I hope they weren't much trouble, father-in-laws..?" Elm asked, looking over at them. "No no, no trouble at all. We were going to visit them anyways, so when Lily and the girls asked us to watch the-" Evergreen hurriedly cut Pear off as he was talking, nodding. "Yes, yes, good to hear! Come now boys, we're going home." Evergreen said, herding Crocus and his brothers away from the group with his head. Crocus squeaked slightly. "B-but wai! I wunted tuu ask iff I culd sleep at Riptide's neest tonite? Hee sed his parents were okai wit eet.." Crocus asked. His fathers stopped, all seeming to ponder the question. It was Elm who spoke first. "Alright, if his parents said it was okay and since you behaved today. Which one is Riptide?" He asked. Crocus chirped happily and rushed over to Riptide. "Dees one! Dee flat one!" He said excitedly, then turned to Riptide. "My dads saii iss ok! Leet's goo!" He said, bouncing on his feet.

Thistle meanwhile watched Silverbrush attentively as she stood atop the hill, her wings spread gracefully. He hoped she wouldn't get hurt too bad if she fell.

While they were over there Thyme quietly looked over at Oceanic, who had fallen off the rock with a 'flump'. "Are yuu okie?" He asked, prodding her with his head.

Silhouette~

Voidwing felt hopeless. He had been searching for who knows how long, and he had yet to find his own mother! Groaning, he slumped down on a flat rock, and sighed. "What's the matter boy, didn't i teach you to try even when everything seems hopeless?" A rough, female voice asked. His eyes instantly shot up to face a big shadow, looming over him. The Silhouette of a Skrill faced him. "Hello my son".

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Silhouette backed away a little when all the other hatchlings she had seen yesterday started heading over to where she was. Not really knowing any of them, she figured it would just be for the best if she let them socialize with each other. As she was walking, she noticed a big shadow being cast on her. Looking up, she could see her father looking down at her with a smile. "There you are! I was looking for you". He swooped Silhouette up with his big wing. "Silhouette, I'd like you to meet your grandmother, who is my mother, Silhouette". A big Skrill stepped out of the shadows, revealing herself to the younger Skrill. What shocked her was how similar they looked, in coloring. Other than that she was bigger, more muscular, and littered in scars and cracked spikes. "You were right. We look exactly the same! Hello there little one, my name is Silhouette, like you. And your father is my son. It's a pleasure to meet you". Silhouette stared at her wide-eyed. "Uhhw, hiw. Mai naim is Silwouet, bwut yu awleady knwew thwat". Silhouette stared at the tiny tiny-tooth, which unnerved it. "Well, looks like we even talk the same way as when i was a hatchling. Say, how about we go and get to know each other a bit better, hm?". Silhouette nodded. "Good, then follow me".

SilverBrush

SilverBrush ran forward and leaped off the rock.

She spread her wings out fully, and they glided along the air.

Silverbrush was flying!

She quickly noticed that she was going down, toward the ground, quickly.

Silverbrush had to think quickly.

She remembered how her parents flew- and SilverBrush remembered to flap her wings carefully, in time, not frantically. She knew she could do this.

SilverBrush flapped her wings once, moving slightly upwards.

She was doing it!

Silverbrush flapped her wings again, rising slightly more each time.

SilverBrush was feeling very proud of herself, until she realised there was the cave wall quickly approaching her, and she didn't know how to steer or land quickly.

Thinking quickly, SilverBrush tilted her wings, stopping her from moving forward.

The only problem now was that there was nothing keeping her from falling to the ground.

When she came to a complete stop, SilverBrush began quickly plummeting towards the ground...

((@Piggy just waiting for Riptide to take Crocus n Co. back to his nest to commence timeskip.))

♪ Crocus & Bros. ♪

Thistle watched as Silverbrush took a running leap off the hill, her wings spread gracefully as she glided across the cave. She even flapped her wings a bit, gaining height. Thistle watched on in awe. "She's good." He thought, smiling slightly. Pretty soon though that goodness started to fade. She was headed for the cave wall, and Thistle winced slightly as it looked like she'd crash into it. However, instead she drew her wings out in front of herself, stopping her mid-air. That took care of her problem of crashing into the wall, but now she was falling.

"Silvveerbrush!" Thistle yelled. Crocus had been watching, too, so the Snaptrapper hatchling rushed over to Silverbrush, using themselves as a cushion for her fall. Thistle didn't necessarily want to do this, but Crocus didn't give him much of a choice. Silverbrush fell onto them, knocking them down but not hurting them too bad. After recovering from being fallen upon, Crocus looked over at Silverbrush calmly, staring into her eyes. "Are yuu alright?" He asked, stern but soft. Thistle didn't quite like Crocus' tone, but tried to draw her attention away from him. "Yess, yuu alright? Yuur flying wass graate." Thistle said, smiling at Silverbrush.

Nettle scoffed, finding all of this unnecessary. "I would've loved to see her fall.. but nooo, we have to 'catch' her because these idiots like to be 'nice' and ssstuff.." Nettle thought/mumbled, looking away. Their fathers, who were a ways away, watched them, smiling a bit. Two of them murmurred amongst themselves and chuckled in the hatchling's direction. Nettle hissed, glaring at them. "What are THEY talking about.." He thought. Their grandfathers walked up to their fathers and he could hear Hickory saying "Well you sure are raising some charmers there, eh?" Nettle hissed, feeling insulted.

The Sand Wraith Siblings- Desert, Chorus and Hunter

Desert Beauty saw what The Silver Phantom was doing, so she tried again, before she saw her fall, onto the Snaptrappers.

 

Chorus ran over to the Silver Pantom, "arre yoo okie??" She asked.

 

Desert Beauty leaped and spread her wings, she flapped them, though not correctly, they were just acting as crazily flapping parachutes, she spreaded them and glided for a bit then flapped her wings once and started to go up, only once though, before she rammed head-on into the wall.

 

Hunter snickered, "Serves her right" he muttered under his breath.

"Yea. I'm oki." She said, still a little dazed and felt even worse when the some of the other dragons stayed up longer than she did. Her wings were much smaller then their, which discouraged her. Desert Beauty took her turn at trying to fly and ended up crashing into the wall. Oceanic ran up to her. "Arre you oki? Dat look like it hurt." She said showing concern.

((Blahhh sorry for taking so long guys -.-))

♪ Crocus & Bros. ♪

"I iz okei. Thankz for saving me!" Silverbrush said, then turned and snorted at Thistle. "You're not very nice!" She said. Nettle hissed at her, which brought on a snarl from Thistle. Crocus rolled his eyes and smiled at Silverbrush. "Okei, guud, bye naow." He said quickly, pulling away from Silverbrush. Thistle made a noise of protest, but Crocus merely shook his head. "We need tu go. I emm hungreey and Riptiede is prolly waitin." Crocus said. Thistle sighed, yelling 'Farewell!' back at Silverbrush as they walked over to the Thunderdrum hatchling.

And with that, the two (or five, if you're counting heads here.) hatchlings walked back to the sea-faring dragonette's nest, being met with a meal of fish and a warm night of sharing tales of the ocean and answering simple questions like 'What's your name? Or should I say, names?' or 'Whaas eet like having four heds?' The Snaptrapper was fairly content for the most part, and as they settled down to sleep that night Crocus quietly whispered to his brothers. "Thanks, guis." He said. Thistle turned his head to look at him and sighed, blinking his eyes tiredly. "Is good. Todey wass beetr than yeesterday." He said, Crocus glanced at Nettle for his opinion, who snorted in response. "I GUESS, vwass nut as good as the fite yeesterday." He said. Crocus sighed, just glad he hadn't done anything bad today. Not too bad anyways. He looked at Thyme, whose eyes were closed. He hesitated in asking him, but Thyme soon opened his eyes a bit and looked at him. "I liked toodee. No fites. No hurts. Less yeeling." He said quietly, then closed his eyes again. Crocus couldn't agree more, and soon curled his neck in a comfortable position to get to sleep. As he dozed off he quietly muttered "G'night", and was met with three other "G'night"s in response. Feeling content, Crocus drifted off into a calm sleep.

((Time skip to shortwings))

The Snaptrapper sat perched at the edge of the rocky cliff, sunning themselves and watching the other hatchlings gliding down from the cliff, to the forest below. A tunnel system led those at the bottom back up to the mountains proper, but Crocus still felt nervous to try. Nettle on the other hand was rather impatient. "Alright, we've sunned ENOUGH can we get gliding?" Nettle groaned. Crocus looked over at him, huffing. "Nettle, gliding isn't just something you can DO perfectly right off the bat, it takes... time.. and.. control." Crocus said. Thistle looked over, smirking as always. "And by 'control' he means not letting you have any part of it." Thistle said. Nettle growled, staring Crocus down. Crocus sighed, having hoped he could've kept that thought to himself. Oh well. "Of course, he's right you know, we can barely walk in a straight line let alone glide through the air or, heck, fly." Thistle added. Crocus nodded quietly, not quite liking to admit Thistle was right, but he was. Nettle huffed. "No, YOU idiots can't walk in a straight line. I can do anything perfectly, I'm just hindered by you nuisances. You HINDER my GREATNESS." Nettle boasted, adding on the excuse he used for everything when he didn't do something right. Thyme sighed quietly beside him. "That's what you always say, Nettle. We once even let you shoot birds by yourself and you still missed, even when we did absolutely nothing.." Thyme said quietly. Nettle turned on him, growling. "Watch your mouth, runt! It's your PRESENCE that throws me off! Even when you don't do anything your ineptedness rubs off on me." Nettle growled. Thistle chuckled, leaning towards Nettle. "Do you possibly mean 'Ineptness'?" He asked, grinning. Nettle hissed. "Whatever."

Crocus sighed, closing his eyes for a moment. "By the fiery scales of Jormungandr if you don't shut up WE'LL JUST STAND HERE ALL DAY!" Crocus yelled. Nettle glared at him, but Crocus tried to ignore him. Thistle chuckled, leaning towards Nettle quietly and whispering "I think you just got 'shut up.' " This of course caused Nettle to continue bickering as Crocus stared off down the cliff, watching nervously as other hatchlings glided down safely, wondering if they'd EVER be able to fly. Or glide, for that matter.

Riptide then led the Snaptrapper back to his nest as the moon began to rise. "Her weee our. Thes iss meee mum and ded, and thes issss Tooonder, Bubbbbles and Tsunanansmi." Said Riptide as the other Thunderdrums walked out of the nest. Together they ate a feast of fish and slept hard.

Desert Beauty sat down and purred at a butterfly she was looking at and in her trance her brother sneaked up behind her, she did not see him and he swiftly smashed the butterfly. "Hey! You aree bein' mean!" Desert Beauty said as she tackled her brother who immediatly slashed her in the face, she screeched and went to the lake and soaked her face in it, small amounts of blood pooled in the water. 

 

Hunter laughed and watched, looking satisfied.

 

Chorus gulped and glided off the cliff.

Nettle and The Unimportant Rest of Them

♪ Crocus & Crew ♪

Nettle had quieted down by now, and the Snaptrapper teen had resumed in its quiet vigil over the mountain. Nettle huffed as they sat there, Crocus staring down the cliff nervously, twitching their wings but not doing anything to actually glide. Thistle looked off into the distance, seeming lost in thought, while Thyme had his eyes closed and was basking in the sunlight. Nettle growled quietly, drumming their claws impatiently. He watched as a Sand Wraith approached the edge of the cliff, nervously looking down before jumping off. Nettle watched as she glided, then got and idea. He smiled, drawing up above his brothers and deciding to take command. Crocus glanced over at Nettle's sudden movement, glaring at him. "What now Nettle?" Crocus said irritably. Nettle simply sniffed, keeping calm and leader-like. "Listen up troops! You all answer to me now." Nettle proclaimed. Thistle looked over at him, smiling and arching an eyebrow. "We what now?" He asked. "Prepare for launch!" Nettle yelled, then before any of them could react, lunged off the cliff.

He didn't care about the squawks of surprise coming from his brothers, nor his own resentment towards this action as the ground loomed so far underfoot now. All that mattered was that he could do it. He would fly.

Crocus screeched as Nettle steered them off the cliff's edge, flapping their wings. Crocus struggled to keep their wings open so they could glide, while Thistle screeched and kicked their legs in a desperate attempt to grab hold of something. Thyme whined, panicking. "G-g-guyslet'sjustgiveupherethere'snousenowWE'REALREADYFALLLIIING!!!" Thyme screamed, closing his eyes. Nettle hissed as his brothers were ruining everything. "Stop holding our wings out! Let me do it! I can fly but you just won't let me because you're JEALOUS!" He screamed at Crocus as they began to slowly descend. Crocus growled at Nettle. "No you can't! Stop flapping so much- that's what's making us fall!" Crocus argued. They couldn't continue the conversation much, though, as they glided- well, tumbled really- down the cliff with great speed.

They finally met the ground, and met it HARD. They lay in a heap on the dirt ground, a bit banged and bruised from their fall down the cliff. Nettle didn't want to get up, embarrassed by how 'un-cool' that must've looked. Crocus pushed them to their feet, shaking his head. "Gahhh.. Nettle you fish-brained idiot.." He muttered. Nettle pulled up, thinking now if it looked like his brothers were awake but not him that'd make him look weak. He sneered at Crocus. "Well you weren't doing anything! I actually made PROGRESS instead of just sitting there like a LUMP!" He hissed. Crocus growled back at him, staring him down. Thistle coughed from beside them. "As much as I hate to admit it, he's right." Thistle said. Nettle gave a smug little smile, which turned to a frown when Thistle added "That was a great example of what NOT to do, led by the true genius. Now we're learning!". Crocus sighed, closing his eyes. "That was still a very bad idea.." He said, then frowned. Thyme hadn't said anything. Crocus looked over to see Thyme drooping off to the side. "Are you okay, Thyme?" He asked, concerned. Nettle huffed. "Oh sure. Make sure the little dud doesn't have any scratches. Grow a spine, Thyme." He hissed. Crocus glared Nettle down, glancing over as Thyme piped up. "I'm okay, really.." Crocus still felt concerned for him, though decided not to ask any further after Nettle's comment. He noticed a few dragons chuckling in their direction, which didn't help anyone's mood at all. "Welp. That hurt. We gonna try again?" Thistle asked, looking at Crocus. "The RIGHT way, cap'n? After all, it'd just be better if YOU approved a glide test, since then you'd be more in control of the situation." Thistle said, smiling as always. He was right, of course. If Crocus did it willingly then that'd at least appease some of them. He didn't like immediately submitting to Thistle's reasonings, though. The guy always seemed a bit sarcastic towards everything. "Why don't we cool off a bit down here before trying again? Maybe we'll see some friends." Crocus suggested. Thistle nodded, glancing away. "Sounds good." He said. Nettle still growled, angry about their interference. "Had they not tried to do their own stupid stuff I would've glided fine.. but noooo.." He thought, huffing. Thyme sighed, wincing at the scratches he had.

Oceanic

Oceanic nervously looked down from the cliff. She gulped as the cliff seemed to get higher. "Uh...I don't feel like gliding today." She thought. Letting out a sigh, she looked around to see if anyone else tried to glide. She spotted her friend, Desert Beauty, happily look at a butterfly before her brother squashed it. Desert went to tackle him, but was slashed in the face. Oceanic gasped and followed Desert to the lake. "Are you okay?" She said as she noticed the blood streaming away from the sand wraith's face. "Hey! That wasn't nice!" She yelled and tried to look intimidating.

Chorus tried again, this Time she flew, up and up and up! Then she dived down and down and down, before climbing back up in the air, she was having a grand old time.

Riptide and siblings

Riptide and his siblings stood up on the rock in a line and one by one tried to fly. First Thunder flew a couple of seconds. Then Tsunami flew a bit longer. Then Bubbles just stepped of the rock. And Riptide spread his wings and felt a shove. Riptide face planted into the ground and saw Thunder behind him glaring down at him. "What you do that for?" "What! Me? Why I just stood here. The true question is why would you blame me?" "Lair!" "Your acting like a baby." "Am not!!" "You are just proving my point." Thunder said as he walked down and stood next to Riptide. "I hate you!!" "Well at least I was nice enough to bring you some lunch." He said as he pulled out an eel "Ahhhhhh!" Screamed Riptide as he ran off." "That wasn't nice Thunder." Said Tsunami "It was just a prank. You know fake eel, makes everyone run trick." Tsunami then ran over to Riptide and explained that it was a trick. Riptide and Tsunami then walked away with Bubbles behind them.

SilverBrush watched the others look nervously over the edge of the cliff.

Unlike the others, SilverBrush could pretty much fly by now. -SilverBrush figured it was because of her large wings, and that SilverPhantoms spent a lot of their time flying high in the air.

Riptide

Back at the nest, "Ok Riptide just spread your wings as far as you can and jump." Said Bubbles "Ok." Said Riptide. Riptide spread his wings and jumped. His sister and brother used their sonic blasts and Riptide flew. He then tried flapping his wings slowly and he flew around the cave while slowly going down. "Good job Riptide!" Said Tsunami. Just then their parents entered and said to them. "You know. If you really want to fly.... their is a way outside..... and outside their is a slop going down.... and the breeze is perfect for practicing to fly." His dad said slowly "Really! Please can we go." Said Riptide. Then the four of them went over to the far side of the cave. His mother then moved a rock away and their was the outside. Riptide ran outside and felt the fresh breeze. He then spread his wings and ran down the slope and when he neared the bottom he jumped. The breeze carried him up and he flapped his wings and he flew. Then he turned around to land when he realized the breeze only goes one way. He flapped as hard as he could and slowly flew over to his family. "Riptide." His mother said "Get on my back." So Riptide jumped on the Purple dragon's back and she took him up and over the ocean. "Riptide now spread your wings and fly. Don't worry about falling because the water will catch you." Riptide spread his wings and jumped he flapped his wings as he fell then gradually went up back to his mom's back and landed. He spent hours doing this to perfect his flying. Eventually he could fly in small circles without jumping of something.

((Just to remind ya'll, we're all learning to glide right now so flying isn't going to be much of a thing until later on. I'll make a few exceptions for the bigger-winged dragons, but still something to keep in mind that they're still learning right now. (; ))

♪ Crocus & Crew ♪

Crocus looked around as they sat at the cliff base, keeping a firm solemn look. Eventually the few hecklers lost interest which was mostly what he wanted. He knew how upset Nettle gets if his 'reputation' is put into jeopardy, so he hoped that would at least calm him.

Thistle scowered the skies for Silverbrush, to no avail. Ever since they were hatchlings she was his favorite dragon to hang around. He sighed, curling around and picking out some grit stuck in their scales after the tumble down the cliff. "Nettle is such a joke, so I'm always happy to get new material off of him," He thought, unwedging a pebble. "-But I don't have much tolerance for him when he scuffs up MY scales.." He added in his train of thought, spitting out the pebble. He glanced over at Thyme who was still drooping. "Oh boy.." He thought, rolling his eyes slightly. He leaned over to Thyme, smiling, and nudged him. "Hey champ, not looking so good." He said. Thyme looked over at him, sighing. "I just fell down a cliff, what'd you expect?" Thyme said. Thistle rumbled in amusement. "Well, I just did too, and let me tell you it's a VERY dangerous experience. I barely escaped with my life! But I prevailed." Thistle said. Thyme stared at him impatiently. "Thistle.. I know.. I was there.." He said. Thistle grinned. "Oh, quite right, but anyways- You'll be alright. A few cuts don't hurt ya." Thistle said. Thyme rolled his eyes. "Actually they do. Alot." Thyme then looked away, so Thistle turned back around to stare at the skies. He grinned slightly in amusement to Thyme's crankiness.

It wasn't long after that the Snaptrapper walked back up through the tunnel leading up towards the mountain, passing by quite a few other dragons as they did. As the pulled back out onto the cliffs, they noticed a few of their friends from their tiny-tooth days a ways off. Crocus didn't know if they wanted to say hi or not, but no one complained when they walked back over to the cliff's edge.

"So, are we doing this or what?" Nettle griped. Crocus still hesitated at the edge, frowning. "We WILL glide today. I just want to prepare a bit, okay?" Crocus said. Nettle rolled his eyes. "Sure, let's 'warm up'. That'll help." He said. Crocus sighed, closing his eyes and mentally preparing himself for this.

She glided gently down to the ground, near the other dragons.

SilverBrush loved flying/gliding, and was getting better at it every day, she just had some trouble turning.

"Ok, fine, but just to make you feel better, they will probably say it is fine." Desert Beauty said, even though she was starting to get worried herself.

 

"But everyone has to." Hunter said before stalking off.

 

Chorus wings tire out quickly and she glides or, more accurately free falls almost to the ground before opening her wings and stopping before she hit it.

Razeth ☆彡

((Excuse me for being so behind))

“Oh, I emm Crocus.” He said, nodding. “Guud to meet yuu in a freendly wayy theese time, Razooth. I deedn't wahnt tu hurt yuu yeesterdey.” He explained.
Just then Crocus’s parent(s) came over and announced it was time to go and Razeth decided he should go. While all the other dragonettes were having their own conversations, the silver phantom decided it was best not to butt in to prevent any repeats of yesterday. He retreated to his little cave behind his nest, curled up by the stream, and closed his eyes, trying to pass time. A minute passed and he was asleep.
☆彡 ☆彡 ☆彡
Razeth’s breath was ragged as he climbed higher and higher. The young Phantom was much larger now, his wings making up more than half of his size. It was something he complained to his mother whenever she was around, but the older Phantom would just laugh it off and say it was a trait of all Silver Phantoms. The sky was their home after all and he would need the large wings to get around or he would get lost.
“How could I get lost in the sky if it’s my home?” He always asked. And his mother always answered, “You’ll find out once you're ready.”
Razeth leaped up to the next ledge. As he got higher, the mountainside became harder to grip with his talons and claws.
The shortwing peered down for a second, seeing the others his age gliding below like tiny birds. He continued climbing and leaping, nearly at the peak of the mountain he was climbing. After a few more minutes, he was at the apex. He looked down and mustered his courage.
“Here I come!” He shouted, though he was sure no one could hear him over the wind and of course, distance.
He leaped off, spreading his silver-white wings. The silver Phantom was unsteady at first, shaking a bit before he caught the updraft and slowly glided forward. It was refreshing to have his wings spread out as far as he could, the cold air rushing around him. He beated his wings up and down, aiming upward, but of course that didn't work yet. Instead, he went forth a little faster. He dipped his right wing slightly, practicing a turn. Then he tried his left and grinned at good results for he managed to turn both right and left even just a little bit, all while slowly descending.
Hmph, time to give the a little scare and show, he thought and began angling downwards towards the other shortwings in the open space of the lake and gained momentum heading down in a dive. He twirled around in a circle, his wings close to his body to make him go faster. As he neared them, he yelled, “Look out, lemme land!”
Razeth spread his wings to slow his dive, trying to lift his body so his feet faced the ground for landing, but still no one had noticed his approach, making it hard to land without crashing into the others.
Ugh, I guess I'm still too far to be heard. Or they need their ears checked. The silver Phantom thought, changing directions and aimed for the center of the lake they were gathered by. He flapped twice, but slowed little as he descended into the water. The shortwing skidded across the surface, splashing water to both sides before he came to a stop at the end of the lake.
“Man, you guys can't listen, can you?” He complained, shaking off the water. He then noticed the water's strange color. Why’s some of it red? Razeth then noticed a distinct scent to it.
Blood? But there's so much!
He then looked at the dragonettes by the lake. “Why’s there blood in the lake?” He queried, half curious, half concerned, his mouth curled into a frown. But none of them needed to explain. His eyes landed on Desert Beauty, whose face had a slash which the blood was clearly coming from.
“What happened to you?” He asked, disbelieving someone could get such an injury so early in the day.

"It's nothing.. Really, Oceanic was just bringing me to one of the older dragons, but I am fine" Desert Beauty said, looking at the ground.

 

Hunter smirked as he watched the group.

 

Chorus continues to try to fly.

“It's nothing.. Really, Oceanic was just bringing me to one of the older dragons, but I am fine,” the injured Sand Wraith replied, looking at the ground.

He noticed Hunter, her sibling, in the distance watching them. Why isn't he helping her or at the least with her?
Razeth cocked his head and flicked his tail. “How'd it happen though? Flew into a tree? You gotta be more careful if so.”

"I just got scratched.." Desert Beauty said, continuing her intent stare at the ground.

 

Hunter snarls at a mouse passing by and snaps it up in his mouth quickly.

“I just got scratched..” Desert Beauty replied, still staring at the ground.

Razeth shrugged, slightly disappointed by the anticlimactic response, though he sort of suspected more.
“Mk then, there’s no need to stare at the ground all day. Get the rest of that blood off your face. It doesn't look nice,” he replied. “I’m going to go glide some more. Join me if you want to.”
((@piggyxl Not sure who Riptide was directing the question to. Was it to Desert's group?))

"I can't it is still bleeding and every time I wash it off more comes!" Desert Beauty says as she runs to the lake washes off and comes back, blood is beginning to fill the slash marks again. "I can still glide with you!"

 

Hunter walks over and Desert Beauty shrinks back a bit, only a small amount but enough to tell, "Hello, Have I seen you around before?" he asks Razeth, Desert Beauty was obviously trying to hide fear.

 

Chrus continued to glide.

Razeth turned to go but stopped when Desert Beauty spoke up again.

“I can't it is still bleeding and every time I wash it off more comes!” The ruby scaled dragonette protested, proving her point as she washed the blood off only for it to seep through again. “I can still glide with you!”
The silver Phantom debated whether to consider the injury harmless or not. It's just a cut, but it's still bleeding. Shouldn't it be clotting yet?
Before he could say anything, another voice piped up, “Hello, Have I seen you around before?”
Razeth turned in the direction of the voice and saw that Desert’s sibling came over.
“Perhaps,” he replied, lifting his head. “But I'm sure you know me. I'm the one and only Razeth. Nice to meet you.”

((He is asking everyone))

Riptide then walked closer and asked again "Does somebody want to have a gliding race?"

"Pleasure to make your aquaintance." Hunter said, he dared laughing glance at his sister who backed up a few feet. Desert turns to the thunderdrum, "I-I would" She volunteered giving her an excuse to hide behind the Thunderdrum.

 

Hunter laughs at her miserable attempt at hiding.

“Pleasure to make your acquaintance.” Hunter replied just as Riptide came up, asking if anyone wanted to race.

“I-I would” Desert Beauty piped up and went over to the  Thunderdrum’s side.
“Nice timing, we were gonna go for a glide,” Razeth added. “We might as well add some competition, though I'm pretty sure I would win.”
He glanced at the ruby dragonette’s still bleeding gash. “Oh wait, I know what can help!”
The silver Phantom raced off into the shrubbery around the lake and looked for cobwebs. Mum always applied them whenever he got cuts. She also fed him this sap from some crushed leaves, but he never got to find out what kind of leaves they were.
Razeth came back to the group of dragonettes soon after he found a couple of cobwebs and carried them still in tact in his jaws.
He gingerly applied the cobwebs to the slash. Once done, he backed away to give Desert space. “That should at least slow the bleeding,” he explained. “Mum gave me some other herbs to stop bleeding too whenever I got hurt, but I don't know how they look like out here.”
He glanced back at the gash. The webs weren't visible for the most part, reflecting light off the thin threads every once in a while.

"Ok then me and you will race." Said Riptide "Don't forget about me loser." Said Thunder as he walked in "Go away Thunder." Said Riptide sternly "Why? Afraid to loose?" "No your just being mean and mean dragons can't play." Said Riptide as he turned away "W-what! What happened to that kid I know?" "Just Go Thunder." Said Riptide without looking at him "Fine!" Thunder said as he stomped away "Now how about we go to that tall rock over there and we have to glide to that rock" Riptide said as he pointed to the rocks "then to that rock and back to that rock and who ever can do it faster wins." He then looked at the dragon that had offered to race him.

"Ok" Desert Beauty said as she climbed up to get there. She whispers to him, "I understand your problem with your brother, I have a similar problem." She then looks at the Silver Phantom, "Thank you for the Cobwebs, it helps." it was true, the blood flow had slowed to almost stopped.

Riptide then climbed up onto the Rock and joined the other dragonet and said as he spread his wings. "Ready? Set, Go!" Riptide then jumped and flew to the next rock..........

Riptide was gliding towards the finish with Desert Beauty next to him. As he was about to cross the line Desert Beauty sped up and crossed it. As the landed Riptide said "Good job Desert Beauty! That was a fun race."

"You too! Good Race" Desert Beauty said, then looked back to see her brother smirking at her. "Umm, d-do you mind if I hang out with you for a while?" She asked, her face looking upset and nervous.

 

Chorus kept on practicing.

Razeth ☆彡

Desert Beauty thanked Razeth as she and Riptide prepared to race.

“No problem,” he replied, low on breath.
The Silver Phantom decided to sit the race out, being that he had to catch his breath. He watched the two race from a tall rock to another far away. The two were a little slower than him in terms of speed, but at least neither crashed or lost balance.
Razeth decided to head off, coming to a conclusion that neither of them want to have his sort of fun- flying off peaks and doing stunts or other daring things. Sticking around with them wouldn't get him anywhere either.
“Gonna go higher to practice,” He announced and ran uphill towards the peak.

Razeth paused when Hunter asked to come too.

“I don't see why not.” He shrugged. “C’mon race you to the top!”
He then resumed running and leaping, occasionally spreading his wings to boost him higher.

Riptide

Riptide then led Desert Beauty to the boulder that led to the cliff. Riptide then blasted it with his sonic blast and it moved over enough for them to go through "Out here." Riptide said as he walked outside "My parents showed me this." He said gesturing to the cliff that was perfect for gliding "Here there is always wins blowing upwards so even if you fall while falling the wind will carry you." Riptide said as he jumped of with his wings folded in. As he almost hit the ocean he spread his wings and shot straight up. As he got eye level to Desert Beauty he said "Come on jump."
