Prologue:

This is Berk. We have been at war with dragons for generations. Well, we were until I was the first viking to TRAIN a dragon! Ha! No. Not me, that's Hiccup. He trained and rode an elusive night fury. Hiccup Horrendous Haddock iii is the son of the chief of the Hooligan Tribe, Stoick the Vast. Hiccup had always wanted to kill a dragon and be like all the other viking teens, plus impress his father... and Astrid for that matter. Astrid is one of the other viking teens, and the toughest girl I know. Not to mention my best friend. I wished I could hang out with her more but she, having grown up learing she was meant to be a dragon killing warrior, Astrid and I had one big difference. I have no interest in killing dragons. In fact I have always secretly been fascinated by them. There was also one more thing that drove us apart. She doesnt like my brother. Well, she didn't like my brother. Oh, by the way I'm Tori. Victoria Oceana Haddock, but everyone calls me Tori. Haddock, yep Hiccup is my brother. At least, I think he is. But I've been having these strange dreams ever since I was a kid but now, as I've gotten older I've started to think maybe they aren't dreams? Voices, and places I've never seen. A name I can't remember. I reach out my hand, but it's always out of my reach, and when I wake up, I feel a pain in my head and when I try to think back to my dream I realize, I've forgotten all over again. Some nights, I'll wake up cold, sweaty, and alone, from a nightmare I can never recall, and I'll hear dad talking to Gobber late at night. I can never hear what they're saying, but I feel like its important. More importantly, I feel like it has to do with me. Am I really who I think I am?"

Chapter 1: Perfect World

"Tori... Tori! TORI! Wake up!" I was so startled the first thing I thought to do was punch whoever was talking. "Oww..." I soon realized that was my brother, Hiccup's voice. "Oops Sorry" I quickly said, but the truth was it was kinda funny. "Now what do you want?"

"Aren't you and Stormshine coming to the academy?" He responded. I furrowed my brow. "Boy what you talkin' bout?" I soon remembered after uniting vikings and dragons (and trying for hours to convince my dad) Hiccup started a dragon training academy, but because it just had Hiccup, me, and his friends it felt more like a club. But hey, that's just my opinion! Hiccup took it very seriously though. Stormshine is the Deadly Nadder I trained. Astrid would never admit it, but Stormshine and her Nadder Stormfly, are kinda like twinzies. "Oh yeah!" I finally said. "The least you could have done was reminded me!" With that I dashed out the door leaving Hiccup standing there.

Walking into the academy always felt strange. I couldn't believe a year ago we used to kill dragons where we now train them. I also couldn't believe I totally forgot about the academy's very exsistance this morning. *Sigh* , Mondays will do that to me. "Hey Tori! Where's Hiccup?" Astrid asked. "Oh um..." I said. "I'm... here..." panted Hiccup. "Oh yeah, I left my dragon here at the academy, so I took Toothless. Sorry bro, but you could use the exercise." I laughed. "Very funny" he replied. "Now let's start some dragon training exercises!"

This was nice. Everyone getting along, you know until Ruffnut and Tuffnut start fighting, me and Astrid getting to hang out again, and best of all, no more daily killing. Everything is going my way. I guess you could say I'm living in a perfect world! But little did I know, all good things come to an end...

Chapter 2: What's Going On?

"C'mon Astrid! You can talk to me!" I had been bugging Astrid all week, but she wouldn't tell me if she liked Hiccup. After she found out about Toothless and the the Red Death attack, I was starting to think she really liked him. I'm talking more than friends. Astrid gave me an annoyed look. "Tori you are such a snoop! Sorry to disapoint you but there is nothing between us. Let it go." "You kissed but whatever" I mumbled. "This is going to come back and bite you later Astrid, Just wait!" "I'll take my chances, now if we go out to fly our dragons, you better not even mention the kiss or I will get my axe and chop that side braid right off your head!" She said. To me that threat meant she WAS hiding something. "Whatever. Let's go!" I responded.

After flying for a while, me and Astrid landed on a beach. I looked at the clear water and white sand, Wow, it was amazing to watch the sun set into the water. "It's so beautiful here" Astrid said as she hopped off her dragon. I followed her. "Definately" I agreed. The tide rolled over my boots. Before I knew it my heart was racing and I started panting. One thing lead to another, and the next thing I knew I had fallen to my knees. "TORI! Are you okay?" I heard Astrid's voice and felt her pulling me away from the water. I could feel my pale skin turn red. I pulled some light brown hair out of my side braid and twirled it around my finger. "Um Astrid, it's getting late, wanna go?" Astrid raised an eyebrow. "Tell me" She said.  "Okay, but dont tell anyone." After making her promise, I told her my secret. "I'm deadly afraid of water. When I was little, before I went to sleep, I would tell Hiccup I was going to drown. He would tell me I was completely safe. It was kind of embarressing because he is only one year older than me and I didn't want him to think of me as baby. Almost every night I dreamed I was in a boat. The boat was sinking and I was drowning. I went to my dad and told him I was afraid. He told me I was safe and not to be afraid but it all seemed too real..." Astrid hugged me. "We can go. C'mon!" She said simpatheticly. With that we make our way back to the academy and from there we went home our separate ways.

Meanwhile, Snotlout and Hiccup were leaving the academy for the day. "Your sister's pretty hot" Snotlout said. Hiccup stopped in his tracks. "Do you have to hit on every girl you see? Besides why would you pick my sister?" Snotlout looked bewildered. "Tori? Your sister? Ha!" Hiccup sighed. "Tori and I have the same parents making her my sister. Do I need to say this again slower?" Snotlout grumbled impatiently. "Stupid, I know what a sister is. Ohh... nobody told you? My dad told me." "What are you talking about?" Hiccup asked suspisiously. Snotlout looked Hiccup in the eye. "Your sister is adopted."

Chapter 3: The Truth Comes Out

It was dinner for me and my family and Hiccup looked very angry at his food. Obviously he had something to tell me dad. This happens alot, actually. I remember when he got caught in the middle of a fight between Astrid and Snotlout and then their dragons started fighting too. Yikes. Well, a frustrated Hiccup makes a happy Tori. Hiccup looked from his food, to me, to my dad and it was starting to get weird. "Okay! You're creeping me out, so if you have something to say just say it! I'm going to finish eating in my room." I finally said.

Meanwhile, Stoick finally asked Hiccup what was bothering him. "Alright, out with it." Hiccup sighed. "Okay... well... um... HOW COULD YOU NOT TELL ME MY SISTER IS ADOPTED?" Stoick sighed. "Shhh" "Oh sorry, didn't mean to yell. Snotlout told me today. Why wouldn't you tell me?" Hiccup asked. "Ugh, this is why I only tell Gobber these kinds of things. Well I had to tell you eventually." Stoick said. "Once Gobber and I were out at sea..." He began. "Uh dad" Hiccup interupted. "Shhhh" "But..." "SHHHH" Hiccup wiped the spit off his face. "Okay, okay, continue." Stoick continued. "As I was saying, Once Gobber and I were out at sea. There was a large freeze on it's way to Berk and everyone was out trying to collect enough food, even I, being the chief had to assist my village. Gobber and I got into the farther parts of the ocean where we decided to throw in the net. After waiting for a while, we saw something hit the boat. It looked like a child floating on some broken boards that looked hastily tied together. I thought we should investigate, but when we got any closer, a Scauldron emerged from the water and attacked our boat. We assumed it was trying to get to the fish we'd be collecting but, I wasn't so sure. Whenever we got close to whatever was in the water the beast would growl. This being before vikings and dragons united, I did to that dragon what we did to all dragons, I attacked. After Gobber and I fought the dragon and won, we returned to our investigation. We were right, there was a child in the water. I lifted it into the boat. I assumed it was a girl because she was wearing a dress and had longer hair. Then, I noticed something shining around her neck. She was weaaring a locket. When I opened it a piece of paper fell out, it said her age and name. "Can we call her Oceana? I mean we found her in the ocean." Gobber asked.  "No, she already has a name. It says here her name is Victoria." Gobber sighed. "Fine, but it should be her middle name, just saying." As we traveled back to Berk I took another look at the note. Written on the back it said "The boat was sinking and we did the first thing we thought to save you." That explained why she was in the ocean.

When we arrived back home I noticed she was ice cold. So I lit a fire and left her to sleep. Later, when I went to check on her, she was awake. "Where... am... I? Who... am... I? Who... are... you?" She asked. The note said she was two, a year younger than you were Hiccup, so it made sense she knew how to speak, but she didn't know who she was. She must have lost her memory when she hit our boat. I had to answer her questions, so I did the first thing I thought to do. "You are at home. Your name is Victoria, and I am your father." I told her to go back to sleep. I left the room and I don't know if you remember, but you were standing in the doorway. "Who is that?" You asked. "She is your sister." I replied. You were very confused but as the years went on you addressed her as your sister. So, that's the whole story." "Wow... you are going to tell her, aren't you?" Hiccup asked. Not yet. You know how sensitive she is. Stoick replied. "Don't I know it. When she gets 'sensitive' she throws her axe. I alomost lost a finger last time." "It's been a long day long day, you should get some rest." Stoick instructed. Hiccup walked upstairs and saw me. "Hey, what was wrong?" I asked. Hiccup made a weird face. "Um... in a fight with Snotlout... and needed some advice... uh yeah." I rolled my eyes. "Okay, hope it goes well." Maybe I'm just crazy, or does Hiccup seem like he's hiding something?

Chapter 4: A Scauldron?

It was a cold morning and everyone from the dragon academy was going on patrol. After the attack from Dagur the Deranged, we thought it was best to patrol with our dragons just in case any new threats were on their way. I shivered. Usually I liked the cold, but this was pretty extreme. “Hiccuuup! Are we there yeeeet?” I whined. I wasn’t the only one shivering. The others looked pretty cold too. “Tori, we’re on patrol, it may be awhile.” Hiccup replied. “Hiccup, maybe we should split up to cover more ground.” Fishlegs suggested. “Good idea.” Hiccup responded. “Tori, you take that island, and then meet us back at the academy.” I shrugged. “Kay.” As long as I don’t get wet things will be fine.  I thought. As the others flew away I heard Tuffnut saying “Dibs on the beach!” I sighed. Whenever we do this kind of thing, he always picks the beach.

C’mon Stormshine, the sooner we make sure this island is safe, the sooner we can get out of here.  I then noticed as we landed Stormshine looked strange. I pulled a salmon out of my bag. “You hungry girl?” I asked.  She ate the salmon but she still looked strange, more like cautious actually. “What is it Stormshine?” She took a step toward the ocean. I followed her.   Stormshine ran in front of me. Stormshine knows I’m afraid of water. Was she looking out for me? Suddenly, I heard a gigantic roar.  I soon realized it wasn’t the water she was worried about. I went toward the water to investigate but Stormshine wouldn’t let me pass. “Stormshine, please! I’m going to be fine.” With that, she stepped aside. I pushed my way through the bushes to see a very large dragon in the water. I gave a startled scream as I fell backward. “Hold on… It`s a Scauldron!” I said. I looked at Stormshine. “What’s a Scauldron doing on an island in the middle of the ocean? Why am I asking a Deadly Nadder? Why am I even asking a dragon? She can’t answer. Why am I asking all these questions??” Wiping away the stupidity I was feeling, I walked up to the dragon. It wasn’t stuck or anything, it was just swimming up to the island.  As I got closer the tide rolled in. I quickly jumped backward. If I was going to approach this dragon, I needed some courage. I took a deep breath and went up to the dragon. You have to gain a dragon’s trust before you can even touch it, but the Scauldron bowed it’s head for me to pet it as soon as we made eye contact. “Okay…” I said slowly. I reached out my hand and touched its face.

And. Then. It. Happened.

Hey guys! I know, I haven't updated in a while and I'm taking every opportunity to keep going during the school year. The chapter I'm working on is actually (cringe) fairy long, but trust me it's one of the best chapters. I know I left on on a cliff hanger so I owe you all a great next chapter. Alright, that's all for now! I hope to have the next chapter up by this weekend ^w^
