Chapter 4: The Orphan Girl

Soon school was finished so Val and I snuck over to the dragon stables on Iskyn with two barrels of fish, a pipe, and an empty barrel. It didn’t take us long to find who we were looking for. We approached the two cautiously since we didn't want an explosion like the last time.


“Here Ayre”, I called to one of the Zippleback heads as Val approached the other head named Dance. Yup, today we were going to try getting gas from Kaya’s Zippleback for the 15th time this month. The other 14 times ended with an explosion or the time we accidentally put eels in their food, they ended up sick and started spewing gas and sparks everywhere. The two heads began to chow down on the fish and Ayre started to breathe gas. I used a tube that I built into the barrel to siphon gas into another barrel. After I filled the empty barrel with gas I waited for the explosion... there was none, Val and I had successfully got the gas.


“I’m going to go try my hand at a new game Fortran setup in the arena”,said Val excitedly, “it involves axes, maces, swords, crossbows, wild boars and catapults. It really sounds like fun!”

“Don’t get hurt! If you break a leg you won’t be able to continue dragon training!” I yelled back as she ran off with an axe in one hand and a shield in the other. I rounded the corner of the stable with a barrel full of Zippleback gas and I bumped into Saga sleeping in a dragon stall, she woke up.

“Sorry I was just taking a nap Lyra” she yawned. I looked around the stall and saw a tent, a fire pit, some fish, a desk, a washbasin, a clothesline, a Terrible Terror sleeping in a barrel, and two zippleback heads peeking over from the other stable trying to get at the fish.

“GARTH!” Saga screamed as she opened her eyes, “I-I-I wasn’t expecting you, sorry” she gasped.

“I wasn’t expecting you to live here” I replied, “if you told me you didn’t have a place to live, I would’ve asked you to stay at my place. Would you like to?”

“I can’t, besides I can’t abandon Ayre and Dance” She said gingerly petting and feeding the two heads.

“Come on, pack your stuff, the zippleback that’s salivating over your fish is my sister’s. He has a stall at home but stays here during the day. Kaya will even cook you something to eat. We can visit the market on the way and get you some new clothes, I heard Trader Johann just arrived, and we can ride Ayre and Dance all the way.”

On the Subject of Hackers

please read this link, it helps to identify the different types of hackers. I have hacked computers, and servers in the past (despite not being the best at code) but I never do it for personal gain. Unfortunately the hackers most people refer to on the internet are crackers so they bring a bad light on the hacking community in general. I only learned to hack code because I needed to in order to hack my microwave and other software in my house.


Don't be a Cracker you ruin it for everyone!
