Spiritcrusher

"Why are you still here?" Aurora demanded.

 

Spiritcrusher looked up at her. "Well I guess you have come to relised that I'm intentionally staying here. Finally, I couldn't believe it took you guys that long to figure out. Like really, I'm some random Nightwing that was put in a sack and I try to run away and you try to stop me. And now your asking why I haven't left? Do you want me to leave? I thought after away l this time together, almost a whole twelve hours, and you still don't trust me. Well, I'd like to congratulate you for that chioce. It wouldn't be smart to trust me. Because, you know, I am the son of a murderer and my mother's name is Psychokiller. And then my name is Spiritcrsuher, which I don't know why I haven't crushed anyone's hopes yet? Because your never actually going to become queen. Because Icicle is obviously the better fighter of you two. Even if you became queen, she'd challenge you for the throne and completely destroy you! Oh, I bet you don't know how fun it is to constantly change topics. Oh and Bravehero doesn't look very well over there. Maybe you should go help him." Spiritcrusher finished off with a smile.

 

Bravehero

Why did he have to change subjects so quickly? His mind was constantly changing thoughts. Like pictures of his dad were in his mind, along side that was the Sandwing who shoved him in a bag. There was an image of Aurora getting killed by her sister, Icicle. His mind kept switching and switching making it hard to focus on one single thing. Even if the trap was in those thoughts, it was there for 2 seconds. Finally Bravehero opened his eyes and focused on breathing. Apparently, searching through Spiritcrusher mind was tiring.

 

Quetzal

Sunrise flew with him down towards the camp. Then she asked him if he'd be alright. "Oh yeah. I'll be fine. Aurora didn't hurt me that much. Maybe just a few scratches here and there but for the most part, I'm fine."

Aurora The IceWing

Then Spiritcursher started talking. Which was an obvious mistake because he diddnt shut up. Aurora gave him a bored look as he rambled on and on.

"Well I guess you have come to relised that I'm intentionally staying here. Finally, I couldn't believe it took you guys that long to figure out. Like really, I'm some random Nightwing that was put in a sack and I try to run away and you try to stop me." Spiritcrusher babbled haughtily.

"Its funny you actually beleive that." Aurora snorted, but then he just kept talking. 

 

"And now your asking why I haven't left? Do you want me to leave? I thought after away l this time together, almost a whole twelve hours, and you still don't trust me. Well, I'd like to congratulate you for that chioce. It wouldn't be smart to trust me. Because, you know, I am the son of a murderer and my mother's name is Psychokiller."
Aurora honestly diddnt care what his mother's name was.

"And then my name is Spiritcrsuher, which I don't know why I haven't crushed anyone's hopes yet? Because your never actually going to become queen. Because Icicle is obviously the better fighter of you two. Even if you became queen, she'd challenge you for the throne and completely destroy you!"

 

Aurora glared at Spiritcrusher. "Icicle is weak." She growled.

"Oh, I bet you don't know how fun it is to constantly change topics. Oh and Bravehero doesn't look very well over there. Maybe you should go help him." Finally Spiritcrusher seemed finished. Aurora just couldnt take it anymore. She glanced over her shoulder to see Bravehero struggling and gasping. 

'Hmmm.... SUNRISE GET YO TAIL OVER HERE AND READ THIS DIM-WIT'S MIND!' Aurora thought this as loud as possible, practially broadcasting it to the world.

((WAit, do we know if SUnrise is a midnreader or not? Oh wellllllll))

 

 

Growling the IceWing princess leaped at Spiritcrusher knocking him over, quickly she clamped her talons over his jaws and thrust them to the ground.

"First of all, shut up. I do not care about you, or your scavenger-headed mother, or your stupid family buisness of kidnapping dragons. I can also care less about that notorious trap your father as probably already set for us." She glared at him. No matter how hard he thought about something else, at least something would leak out. She knew that in order for him to recognize the topic of 'his ftaher's trap' his brain would have to think back to it.

((Point is proven in Moon Rising when Darkstalker asked Moon how old she was.))

Spiritcrusher

'Oh, so you do know about that. That's great! Which one of you guys is the mind reader? Oh, I bet it's the Nightwing. Makes sense. And I truthfully know that my father has a trap set up for you but I have no idea what it is. And I'm guessing that's what your after. Yeah, my father does have a trap set up in the night city but he threw me out before he told me what it was. Fathers.... ' He sthought in his head.  'He actually didn't know what his father was doing. His luck his father doesn't even have anything set up. That would be about his father's brains.'

 

Bravehero

He listened to Spiritcrusher's mind. "He is telling the truth," he said queitly. "He doesn't know what the trap his. There may not even be a trap. The only way we'll  know is if we go." Bravehero said to Aurora.

Wavecrest

Wavecrest flew back to the camp lugging some sort of big pig. She wasnt able to find a big enough place to catch good fish, sadly, so she caugt what she could. The fish in the stream were way to small for her liking.

"Breakfast?" She asked the other dragonets. She hadn't eaten in a while, and before she could get to the place she dropped the meat, Sunrise had already ripped of a big chunk of and started chewing it. Wavecrest herself gobbled up some meat, but made sure not to eat to much, for the other dragonets as well. They might need more food though.

Aurora The Icewing

Aurora made a disgruntled noise when she heard that Spiritcrusher was telling the truth.

'We'Ll just send in Spiritcrusher into the trap thend. Figure out what it is.' Aurora thought. Spiritcrusher was definitely disposable. 

"Breakfast!" Someone shouted and Aurora lifted her Icy head. She watched as a blue dragon came flapping in, swaying under the heavy weight of a large hog. Wavecrest half crashed half landed at the campsite, panting. Already Sunrise was on the hairy thing grappling for a large leg.

 

Aurora wrinkled her snout. Why did they always have to eat dirty wiry things? She much preferred a polar bear, or a narwhal. Aurora glanced at Bravehero then rolled her eyes.

"Come on." She muttered and headed over to the revolting kill. The dragonets had forced her to eat like this in their little school. This was no way a will-be Queen should eat. Aurora knew that of she were queen she would make them serve something decent like elk, or she'd just ban the school from Ice wings for good. She had no idea what Queen Glacier was thinking sending both her daughters to that place!

 

Aurora stalked over aND cringed at the beast. Daintily Aurora began sawing of her desired peace. Once she received it, she Peeled off the hairy skin of the thing and just ate the muscle underneath. The pig sort of tasted like a Narwhal but the similarities ended there. It wasn't nearly as fatty, and it did not have the buttery taste. Of course Aurora had pig before, it was one of her least favorite dishes from the warmer areas. This thought was surprisingly replaced with a feeling of homesickness which Aurora dismissed as just pre-heroism anxiety.

Quetzal

"Breakfast!" He heard Wavecrest shout.

 

"Breakfast!" Quetzal repeated and he bounced over to breakfast. He jumped forwards to Wavecrest went down to take a bit of breakfast but stoped. It was a pig. "Ew, ew, ew." He repeated as he backed away from the dead pig. That was not fruit. "I think I'll pass." He said aloud, and went laid down and waited for the others to finish.

 

Bravehero

He walked over to the pig that Wavecrest brought and pulled off a leg and started eating it. This wasn't no panther or anything but it would have to work.

Sunrise

Sunrise finished eating quickly and looked around. It didn't seem like anyone was enjoying the food. Well, as she was born lower class in the Sky kingdom, she was used to eating whatever she could get. Wavecrest looked a little hurt at the fact that others didn't like her catch. Quetzal was dreaming about fruits. Bravehero was the only one who ate it quietly, but he too had wanted something else. Aurora was scowling and thinking about seals and elk, gingerly eating a small piece of meat.

"Don't worry Aurora, we will soon get seals and elk when we get closer to the ice kingdom," she didn't know why she had said that. Pity, Maybe? She didn't do pity, and she should probably knock it of. 

The only person who didn't make a move toward the food was Spiritcrusher, who stayed calmly in a corner.

"Lets get going!" Sunrise yelled before she jumped into the air and checked around the air for any rescue parties who might get want to find them and bring them back to the school, with punishments of course. And they had already found one of them.

Anaconda bit into the piece

Anaconda bit into the piece of meat closest to her and started eating. So far she seemed the only who enjoyed what little Wavecrest had brought them. She was a MudWing after all and shared her cousin Clay's appetite. 

She finished. 

"Thanks Wavevrest," she said.

Bravehero

And then they were off again. Back to the Lost Kingdom of Night. It would take about a half a day because of when they turned back. Not wanting to start a conversation, he flew quietly keeping a close eye on Spiritcrusher.

 

Quetzal

Quetzal took after Sunrise. She seemed pumped to be getting off the ground again, that was good for yesterday she collapsed. She flew closer to her. "So, how do you think the next dragonets going to be like?"

Aurora The IceWing

"Don't worry Aurora, we will soon get seals and elk when we get closer to the ice kingdom."
Aurora stopped in mid-chew and looked at Sunrise. She kept forgetting the Skywing could somehow read minds aswell. She had been meaning to ask her. Aurora laughed.

'Even the Southern most part of the Ice Kingdom is too cold for these lumps of scales.' Aurora also highly doubted that the NightWing could even get over the glacier wall, it liked to target NightWings particularly. 

 

Quickly Aurora shut down that line of thought by hastily shoving an iceberg onto it. The true temperture of the Ice Kingdom was a closely guarded secrect as well as the Glacier wall. Aurora distracted herself by concentrating on her food, and changing her thought line to regard exactly why Sunrise seemed to care about her. Pity did not look good on SkyWings. 

"Okay Let's go!" She call roused Aurora. The princess was just glad to relive herself of her pig meat. Aurora knocked the hog aside and launched into the air. 

 

She cast a look around her "group". In the Ice Kingdom life was a series of tules and expectations. Aurora, as a princess was required to memorize every upper class dragon's name and rank so she could greet them accordingly. She doubted her little gang of misfits ever followed one rule in their life. At least the SkyWing's seemed to have some disapline. Aurora shook her head, for some reason she founded it harder to think about her... friends? Was that what they are? Her... acquaintances in a mean light. Eailer it would of suited her just fine/

"I wish I sayed at that stupid school." Aurora muttered. She angled her wings upward and rose into the air.

Sunrise

Sunrise saw Anaconda was the only one to thank Wavecrest. Wavecrest blushed, then smiled. Aurora quickly left her pile of meat and rose into the air, thinking confusing thoughts about how Sunrise could read her mind, and the Kingdom of Ice, and how they could get over the wall. Wavecrest had thought that over. She could enchant several items to help the dragonets survive in any climate, mainly the underwater palace of the Seawings, and the cold temperature of the Kingdom of ice. 

Sunrise let her wings just flap on either side of her for a while, gliding. The air felt good against her scales. Quetzal came over and said "How do you think the next dragonets are going to be like?" 

"Well, I guess it depends what kind of dragonet. I mean, they are all different, but of course I hope they will be nicer than Spiritcrusher over here," she pointed her claw at him. "Well at least I hope it will be more agreeable. Maybe a Skywing dragonet? I'd like to see what they will act like, as I rarely ever meet other Skywings," she fell silent for a moment. Her parents hated other dragons to see her, and pretty much just gave her a small cave space where no one would see her, as well as food and water. This was where she practiced her animus powers. Nobody could know though.

After a little more flight, the Lost City of Night loomed ahead of them. "Where do we start?" She asked the other Dragonets.

Aurora The Icewing

Aurora looked down as the Lost City e of the Night swept underneath them. She couldn't believe what she was seeing, ruins and designs spiraling out fro, a center courtyard. A broken down palace, it must of been beautiful in its time. 

"What do we do now?" Someone asked. Aurora opened up her wings to their full extent to slow down.

"Clearly a trap Has been set for us. We sweep the outer primiter in a single file. Spiritcrusher flies in the front, if we activate any traps, he'Ll be the one getting caught." Aurora called out to the group in a commanding voice.

 

Princess Aurora flapped her sparkling wings to catch up with Spiritcrusher. 

"Take us to the dragonet." She hissed at him. Then slowed to get behind the NightWing. Then she raised her voice again.

"Keep an eye out for anyone following us." 'We are flying right into their trap.' Aurora's brain addedadded ominously.

Spiritcrusher

Aurora started hissing at him. "Alright! I'll try to go look for him." Spiritcrusher  glided down towards the ruins of the city. Most of the buildings were Nicky in tach but just were missing giant chunks in them, like part of the roof and a window.

 

Spiritcrusher wandered through the village, occasionally stepping over multiple strings that you could tell were obviously a trap. His flashed from building to building trying to decipher which one his father would pick. Then there was one house that looked like it was on its last leg. It looked like part of a tower but had wholes in the walls and showed and staircase inside. But the top of it looked fine. Outside of the house was bones of rats and rabbits. Yep, his father was in this house.

 

Spiritcrusher carefully went inside the house. He wondered wether the others were following him or not. They would have probably thought that he was taking them into the trap. But Spiritcrusher probably already passed the main line of defense where the strings were. From here on out, it should probably just be the dragonet.

 

Spiritcrusher slowly climbed the stair case, for if he moved to fast, the building would probably crumble. Finally he Rea he'd the top floor of the building were he saw a young, about 6 year old, Skywing was chained to the wall. "Nightwing....." She growled.

 

Bravehero

He stayed focused to Spiritcrusher's mind. He could tell that he had already passed a few sad string traps and now he was with the dragonet. "Okay guys, he is with the Skywing dragonet. He easily passed all of the traps and now the coast is clear. We can go in now." He said to the group. Now they just needed to get inside that rickety old building Spiritcrusher was in.

Sunrise

Sunrise quickly, half flew across the tunnel after Spiritcrusher went across them. She was the first to take of, and was carefully following the way he took, in case some traps were still around. It was dark and cold in the house, but Sunrise dealt with it. She flew carefully, avoiding everything that could be a trap, all the way to the top.

There it was. A small Skywing lay on the ground, chained to a wall. It was laying calmly, as if it had given up. Hissing though, sputtering. Spiritcrusher was watching it carefully. Sunrise slowly walked over, a little closer, so her flame was in reach of the chain. Simple fire wouldn't work though, or this Skywing would have gotten out a long time ago. She needed help. 

"Skywing," she whispered. She hadn't seen any other proud Skywing be shamed this way. She had to help it. 

"Are you okay, young one?" Sunrise said, quietly enough only for the young Skywing to hear. She looked back for the others, hoping they would catch up soon.

Skywing Dragonet

Another Skywing dragonet came up to her. "Are you alright little one?" She asked

 

"Get away from me!" She hissed at her. "You must be working with him aren't you!" She said thrusting her head towards Spiritcrusher. "I knew that I couldn't trust anyone. Not even another Skywing. And I am not little!" 

 

Quetzal

Sunrise shot off of the ground like a rocket. Wow, she must've really wanted to meet the new dragonet. Quetzal quickly flew after her, as fast as his wings could carry him. Finally  he came to a old house that has someone screaming jnside. Quetzal quickly took up to the stairs. Once he got to the top, he saw Sunrise next to the new dragonet and Spiritcrusher was clutching something in his hand.

Sunrise

Sunrise was startled and horrified at the reply. "I'm not working with him! He is our hostage, and he was stolen from his home, just like you!" She didn't know why, but she wanted the new dragon to like her. Sunrise had saved a little piece of pig meat from the morning, in case she got hungry.

"Here you go Ibex. It's the only food we have with us," Sunrise thrust the meat toward Ibex. Quetzal, Anaconda, and Wavecrest had come to the area by now. 

"How do you think we can break the chain? Maybe if everybody who has a fire breathes on it at the same time....." Sunrise and thought aloud, scratching her head.

Ibex

She happily took the pig meat and ate it happily. "Thank you so much!" She said. Then another Nightwing came into the room. "Another one? How many hostages do you have?" She asked.

 

"No, he's not a hostage. That's Bravehero." Quetzal said happily. "I'm Quetzal."

 

"Okay, now back to the idea of breathing fire onto the bars at the same time. I think it will work. Okay. So me, Anaconda, Sunrise, and Spiritcrusher, will all breathe fire onto this at the same time. Aurora, Wavecrest, and Quetzal, stand back this could get hot." He pushed himself closer to Ibex and the rest began to gather around her, even Spiritcrusher. "Now on the count of three. One, two three!"

Ibex gladly took the meat and ate it quickly. This dragonet had been trapped here a while, she couldn't help but think. 

Then Bravehero came in. Ibex was clearly not a fan of Nightwings, as she seemed not to like Bravehero or Spiritcrusher at first glance. Sunrise still didn't quite understand why Spiritcrusher don't just run away. She tried searching his mind, but there wasn't much in there. Ibex had dark memories of captivity, and a tough look. 

Sunrise agreed to the palm silently in her head, and tried to ready as much flame as possible. 

"One two three!" Bravehero called, and shot a flame at the chain. Sunrise did so too. It slowly started melting, just a bit. They would need some more fire power to overcome the whole chain.  

In a small rest break for more air, she panted out "Ibex, you can breathe fire, right? Can you help us? This will take a while," before continuing on in trying to melt the chain. They wouldn't be able to pull through, if it took this much energy to melt just about if chain.

Ibex

"Oh yeah I do! Some of the hottest fire in all of the Skywing kingdom!" She took and deep breath in and puffed out a giant mass of fire. The chains began to weaken around her and Ibex tried to move further but the chains held their grip. "Hey other Nightywing! What did your father make this stuff out of?"

 

"Oh, just some really unbreakable material. That's all." Spiritcrusher responded.

 

But the other Nightwing had his eyes shut. "You can break it with Rainwing vemon. Quetzal get over here!" Bravehero shouted.

 

Quetzal gladly came over and took his place besides them. "Now everybody be warned, I never passed my vemon shooting class so this might be ugly." Everyone took a step back. "Kidding, maybe. Alright here I go!" Quetzal sent a black glob at Ibex's chain and it opened with a snap.

 

"I'm free!" Ibex quickly ran away from the wall and hugged Sunrise. "Thank you," she whispered. Ibex then pulled away from Sunrise and walked over to Bravehero. "How did you know what would break it?" She asked.

 

"I'm a mind reader." He asked.

 

"Oh." Ibex said.

Ibex started breathing her own fire onto the chains, and though it helped, it wasn't enough. The chains loosened, sure,  but by then almost everyone was out of fire. An idea shot through Braveheros mind.

"Quetzal! Get over here!" Bravehero shouted. Quetzal ran over and dropped spat some venom onto the chains. They popped open with a loud snap. 

Well, Ibex looked grateful. She ran over and hugged Sunrise, glad the worst was over. Sunrise hugged her gently back, just as Ibex gently whispered "Thank you,". "Glad to help," Sunrise answered. 

"Now, we need to get out of here. The Nightwings might find us. And what should we do with Spiritcrusher, now that we are ont he lost city of night?" Sunrise asked.

Bravehero

He looked over at Sunrise. "It's the Lost City of Night, Nightwings don't live here anymore. But I agree, we should still get moving. And I think that we should just abandoned Spiritcrusher. He hasn't done that much anyways. Well, guys. The next stop on our list is the Icewing kingdom. So that's where we"ll be heading next. And let's hope that we don't all freeze to death. But I guess we should talk about what we should do with Spiritcrusher. I still say we leave him.

 

"SAME!" Ibex agreed.

"I vote for leaving him here!" Sunrise agreed with Bravehero and Ibex. "Not like he is helping. I mean, he should be able to take care of himself, right? As for the Ice kingdom, we should get going. The faster we get there, the faster we get out," 

Sunrise stretched her wings out to the sides. She had memorized a map of the Kingdoms from back home, where her family would sometimes store scrolls. She taught herself to read from the scrolls, and listening to her parents read about the war and other things to the poor orphaned dragonets they took care of. They were some of the only Skywings that could read. The Lost City of Night wasn't on it, of course, but she knew the Ice Kingdom was in the Northwest part of the continent, and if they got back on it, she would be able to find the way to the Ice Kingdom. 

"So, What are you waiting for?" She asked the others when she realized she had been standing a while. She spread her wings and started jogging down to the door.

Aurora The IceWing

Aurora watched with slitted eyes as Spiritcrusher hopped over traps and trip wires. She found it increasingly suspisious that all of them were weak. She figured that even NightWings were smarter than that! Of course, she diddnt want to get too machinate. 

 

While the others fled into the crumbling building, Princess Aurora flew to the top of the tower and perched on the ceiling. She curled her tail around it and looked menacing. Someone had to keep watch. From the thin walls of the tower she heard the voices of the dragons, plus one SkyWing, Ibex. They were going to head to the ICe Kingdom! Aurora couldnt help but feel and overwhelimg bolt of excitement and releif. This was her terriotry.

 

After some conversation they decided to take a vote of whether or not to drop Spiritcrusher there. Bravehero voted on leaving him, but Aurora disagreed.

 

The IceWing lowered her long neck, she shoved her face in one of the small window slits in the tower. IT was just wide enough for the dragonets inside to see her glittering eyes and teeth.

"On the contray." Aurora purred, causing some of the dragonets to jump. "This place was rigged with traps, what makes you think the hideout in the Ice Kingdom will not be? We need the extra... exposable... piece."

Spiritcrusher

He looked over as Aurora lowered her head down into the tower and told them of how she thought that they should keep him with the group. "Come on! I've already done my part. I brought you to the Lost City of Night and made sure you didn't wouldn't get in any sort of traps! I say you let me go! Ibex, Bravehero, and Sunrise already said I could go. What do you think. Quetzal? Anaconda? Wavecrest? The only way you could win this vote is if everyone sided with you!" Spiritcrusher's eyes flicked over to the other three. Hopefully they would let him go. Spiritcrusher crunched the peice of parchment in his talons harder, leaving gashes in it.

Wavecrest

Everything happened so fast. One moment they were flying over the ruins of the lost city of night, the next Spiritcrusher was hoping over traps, after that, Ibex. Wavecrest just did what she was told, staring at the dreariness of this place. At least in her kingdom there was always coral and seaweed, multicolored fish, shiny rocks and sea stacks, as well as pearls to wear. Here, well, she couldn't imagine what life had been for those Nightwings stuck here. 

Everyone was arguing about Spiritcrusher.

"I say we fly him at least to the next livig civilization, because surely he can't stay here. Look at the blackness and dreariness of this place!" Wavecrest said. Even though she didn't like Spiritcrusher, she didn't want to leave him here to rot like this. She wasn't that kind of dragon, absolutely heartless and only thinking about herself. 

Sunrise poked her head into the dark room "Whatever we choose, let's hurt up. If we stay in one place for a while, we are more vulnerable because someone could find us and take us captive as well,"said Sunrise before going back out.

"He WANTS to be left. All the more reason to make him stay with us. How do you know that he won't just go running back to his father to tell him that we will be in the Icekingdom?" Aurora countered. She huffed, she did not have time to argue with them. They should just obey her. After all she WILL be queen one day. And when she is, everyone will HAVE to obey her. Anyone who dared contradict her would be sorry.

 

Aurora withdrew from her spot at the window and resumed her guard looking menacing. But not without saying 

"If you make the wrong decision, I expect a full apology from each and everyone of you when this blows up on your face."

Anaconda

Anaconda decided to add 'Bossiness' the list of "Why she should avoid IceWings". She kept quiet, but silently said in her mind "I never have and never will apologize to an IceWing. Besides," she thought, I'm not part of the argument, so I don't need to apologize to any pompous IceWing anyways." With that encouraging thought, she waited quietly as the others worked out a census.

Wavecrest

"Listen, how about this! We fly him to the closest kingdom there is, and persuade the queen or someone else who we trust who can imprison him and guard him? Look, we should do this quickly. I have a bad feeling that something isn't right," Wavecrest looked up at the rest of the dragonets. 

"And if we are going to stand here and talk, let's use some logic. If we are going to the ice kingdom, and there is another tribe of dragon in there, it can't be very far form the border, or it would hidefrom the cold. It can't be anywhere near Queen Glaciers palace,"

Spiritcrusher

He looked around at everyone arguing over him. He rolled his eyes at the few of the statements they were making though. But then he heard that they might leave him with Queen Glacier. "First off, smart girl." He said to Wavecrest. Then he looked over to the rest of the group. "Okay, one I won't tell my dad that you'll be heading to the Icewing kingdom. I have better things to do. Second, I can fly. I wont  rot in this place I can move. Third, I am older than everyone one else here. I'm pretty sure I can leave if I want to. And my line is breaking so I will be going. I will see you all later." He walked over to the entrance. "AND I WISH THE BETS OF YOU LUCK. AND WHEN I SAY THE BEST OF YOU! I MEAN EVERYBODY BUT THE ICEWING!" Then he quickly ran down the stairs, causing the building to shake and took off to the night sky. Heading off to his designation.

 

Quetzal

"Darn! I didn't get to vote!" He said. But you guys are right. We do need to get moving. I don't think Ibex will be any trouble. So I say we should start heading off to the Icewing kingdom. So let's get moving!" Quetzal jumped out of the window that was in the room and extanted I Phil wings to catch the breeze.

Wavecrest

Wavecrest scowled. She was much older than Spiritcrusher, by a lot actually. He still had a lot of growing to do. Wavecrest got up and went after Quetzal. Sunrise was in the air, scouting and watching for any signs of danger, it seemed. Spiritcrusher could be seen in the distance, flying of. Wavecrest jumped into the air, letting her wings out. They fluffed in the wind as she let them loose. She wondered if she should go after Spiritcrusher, just in case he was lying, which he probably was.  But it didn't seem like anyone was really caring about that, so she just got up into the air, and started flying in the direction of the continent. The Ice Kingdom was north, and there was no way the kidnapped dragonets could survive as far up as Queen Glaciers palace, unless they were wearing some sort of enchantment. Could there be animuses in the Icewings again? Aurora seemed fairly likely, but now that it seemed her icy heart was melting, even just a little, Wavecrest could see that Aurora in a way was not exactly like an animus in every way. But she would have to find that out. And now, the Ice kingdom.

"AND I WISH THE BEST OF YOU LUCK. AND WHEN I SAY THE BEST OF YOU! I MEAN EVERYBODY BUT THE ICEWING!" 

 

Aurora perked up from her spot on centry duty when she heard Spiritcrusher yell, directed at her. She watched with a cold stare as he rushed out. What was that supposed to mean?

'Idiots.' She thought. She would defiantly be reciving those apologizes soon. SUddenly the building lurched underneath her. Aurora leaped into the air and watched as it began to crumble and shake. The other dragonets made it just before it started collasping in on itself. (Sadly).

 

Aurora turned and flew with the rest of the group in silence, they  were finally going to the Ice Kingdom! Aurora tried to supress her exitement, there were mind readers around. Plus she had more pressing matters to think about, like that obvious threat Spiritcrusher delievered to her. That was a threat right? Aurora shook her scales, she beat her wings harder flying twoards the front of the group. Gradually things began to cool off, and Aurora felt the releif, she ahdnt realized how over heated she was.

 

Relishing the coolness on her scales Aurora pumped her wings suddenly enjoying the flight. She glided up over the group, did a loop then dived down back to the front. Althought she wore a cold mask of seriousness, she was smiling ong the inside. She was going home!

Sunrise

While everyone was inside dealing with Spiritcrusher, Sunrise did a quick scouting up in the air. Someone was bound to be looking for them, whether it be the school, some parents, or the dragon who trapped Ibex and Spiritcrusher. 

Since nothing was in sight, she headed to the north, slightly in front of Aurora. Sunrise had always wondered what the Ice kingdom would be like. Long mountain ranges with snow on top? Or maybe long tundras filled with snowdrifts and icy seas? She didn't know, but she was very curious and interested in finding out. 

Before long, it had started to feel a bit colder in the air. The sun would go down soon as well. She didn't know whether or not they would reach the Ice Kingdom before night, but she hoped they would stop and rest soon. Though she was still somewhat in front, her wing was starting to ache. Sunrise wondered if any other animus dragons had this type of disability. She hoped that she wasn't alone.

Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I was gone most of the day.

Quetzal

They had been flying for hours now. And been in a Rainwing, they had terrible wings for flying. They were starting to ache like crazy! But lucky for him, Bravehero had something to say.

 

Bravehero

Bravehero was unintentionally reading people's minds again. And Sunrise and Quetzal's wings were getting tired. He knew if they didn't land quickly, that they would lose Sunrise again. And he could also feel that it was starting to become colder. Which means that tthey were at least at the border of the Icewing kingdom. 

 

"Alright guys! Let's land. Then from there, we should split up and look for places that Bloodtaster could've hidden a dragonet. In a cave, in a snowdrift, a hole, anything. It could be anywhere. Let's head down." And Bravehero began to head to the ground.

Aurora The IceWing

Aurora watched as the ground turned from grassy hills, to sand as they flew around the edges of the Sand Kingdom.  And now, there was only soil. With a few spikes of determind grass and a bush or even a tree here or there. And the ground was completely covered inna light wave of frost.

 

When Bravehero asked to set down Aurora inwardly groaned. She could of kept flying. She doesn't care how tired everyone else was. But she obliged and set down in the frost. Aurora looked up scanning the horizon hoping to see the beautiful ice palace she can call home. But there was nothing. Use wide open expance all around. As well as the occasional pile of snow here and there. 

"We are close to the border. But, you guys will not be able to make it very far in without freezing your scales off." Aurora warned. That also meant she would be able to see her kingdom again. Not many other dragon tribes have, they all died before they could cross the Galacier Wall. 

 

"We could be spotted out here in the open by a patrol or by one of Spiritcrusher's co-workers."

'Told you it was a bad idea letting him go.' she thought.

However, there was not much "cover" a large bush was over to her right, could fit maybe 2 or 1 dragons. Aurora looked around, trying to imagine the geography. 

"There are a bunch of caves a little ways inside the border." Aurora rememberd.

Bravehero nodded at Aurora. "Yeah, that sounds good. Bring us there."

Sunrise

Sunrise was glad to land, even if it was a bit cold. She melted some ground under her feet, to warm up a bit. Where was Ibex? She was certain she had seen her a little while ago. Oh well. Anyway, she needed something to warm up. She would need to enchant something to perhaps radiate heat that could warm the others as well. Or perhaps a jewel would do. As Aurora went somewhere that she assumed she was too follow, she asked in a voice that hopefully they all could hear.

"Does anybody have a jewel or something else I could borrow for a second?"

Ibex

Ibex landed besides Sunrise. Then she asked for jewel. "Well I have an earring, but not a jewel. Will this work?" She asked, taking off her earring and handing it to Sunrise.

Sunrise

"Yes it will. Thank you," Sunrise said to Ibex. She flew a little farther behind, then hid behind a large enough boulder and started thinking hard. She carefully enchanted the earring to produce warmth for anyone who wore it, as well as those near it, if they were close enough. She then headed back to the rest of the group. 

They were fairly near the ocean, and they could see it while flying. It wasn't too cold here, but Sunrise could already see a few small icebergs here and there, just floating around. She wondered if she could catch something here, maybe a seal or something, or maybe she should leave that to Aurora. 

"Should I go and hunt us something edible?' She asked the others.

"Okay lead us there." Bravehero nodded. Aurora let the group rest for a while then took off, flying at a slow pace.

"Does anyone have a jewl I can borrow?" Sunrise suddenly asked.

'What an odd request.' Aurora pondered. 

"I have an earring..." Ibex replied and tossed Sunrise her earring.

'Unless...' The notion made Aurora's eyes widden. She flew silently as Sunrise curtly disappeared then reappeared wearing the earring. And the others suddenly stopped shivering. Aurora titled her wings down and flew next to Bravehero.

'Bravehero. Is Sunrise and animus?' She asked through Nightwing, thinking it but not saying it.

Sunrise

Sunrise suddenly stopped and turned around when she heard a very alarming thought.

Bravehero, is Sunrise an animus? Aurora thought, sending a chill down Sunrises spine, even though she was wearing the warm earring. She hoped Bravehero had no idea who she was, because if anyone knew, she was a goner. They would tell the whole world. Well, maybe not Bravehero or Anaconda, or Wavecrest, but it seemed Aurora would not hesitate a second to tell everyone, and Quetzal, though he probably didn't mean any harm, he was loud and could easily spill the secret, though he might not want to. Ibex she wasn't sure yet. Ibex seemed nice, but you can never really know the true identity. She sometimes wished she could could just rummage around in some thoughts sometimes, so she could know what they thought of her.

Bravehero

He looked over to Aurora but then heard Sunrise's thoughts. What should he do? Keep Sunrise's secrets or stay the truth. He knew what he had to do. He looked over at Aurora and gave a sharp nod. This was the right thing to do.

 

"Okay, now the caves." He said. Then suddenly, he felt a rush of warmth all over his body.

Aurora The Icewing

Aurora narrowed her eyes at Bravehero's nod. She glanced over briefly at Sunrise who was flying slightly behind her.

"Now to the caves!" Bravehero declared picking up the pace a bit. Aurora looked at Sunrises shorter wing.

'So why doesn't she use her animus powers to fix her wing?' Aurora pondered.

 

"Erm... right." Aurora looked down, the frost had turned to snow, mounds upon mounds of it. They had passed the border. If the group wasn't enchanted to stay warm, they would be shivering very har.d right now. It was a short flight until Aurora creened sideways, circling down towards a snow bank.

 

From up above the snowbank looked just like all the other banks. But once on the ground, you realized that it was actually a rocky formation covered in snow. Aurora landed with a soft thud in the powerdery snow. In fact, all of the supposed snow banks in that area were harboring tunnels. There at to be 7. Two of which were unnaturally smooth. Most of the tunnels were natural and shallow. However, two of them were dragon made for the war as a secret passage to sneak in and out of the kingom.

 

After the war, Queen Glacier bloked the dragon made tunnelsome off from the other side. Aurora shook her scales. There was a lot of run off in this area, during the afternoon the water would drip onto the rocks thus causing the tunnels today.

"Some are shallow, while others are unstable.  A few, run a complex tunnel system under the Ice kingdom. Not all of it has been explored." Aurora informed casting a nervous glance up at the sky. The dusk patrol would be making its rounds soon. They were required to check the tunnels for stoways.

Sunrise

"But where will we camp during the night?" Sunrise asked. Her stomach was asking for food, but she wouldn't complain just yet. The powdery snow under her feet melted as she landed, further signaling the earring was enchanted. She hoped nobody would take too much notice. Sunrise also felt a bit of jagged rock under foot.

Sunrise looked poked up again at the fading sky. Night would be here soon, and they would need a place to sleep without being caught. Queen Glacier wouldn't be too happy to see some random dragonets brought to her, as well as Aurora. 

Suddenly a thought occurred to her. What if there was a dragonet stranded in one of these tunnels, freezing to d.eath? She needed to see for herself. Maybe once inside one of the tunnels, she could try to pick up thought.
