~Let’s go train a dragon and save the day!~ - A 9 spot HTTYD RP (closed)
Hey guys it’s me Yen…again XD. So Yeah I haven’t seen many new HTTYD rp out here lately and decided to make this one. It’s nothing special, but I haven’t made one like it so I decided to give it a go
Anyways without any further ado …
You’re just a Viking living on Berk, but unlike most you don’t have a dragon! What a disaster XD. Anyways even if you don’t have a dragon you still visit the dragon training classes and Hiccup believes that you are more than capable of taming a dragon on your own. He send you and a bunch of other Viking that share your problem to an island nearby where a lot of different dragons call their home. The reason that almost every dragon species lives on the island is pretty simple. Dragon Hunters. All dragons on the island were previously captured on a big ship that crashed on the shore a few years back when a big storm was going on. They all escaped and now lived on the island. What happened to the dragon hunters is still unknown. Your job is to live there for a month or so and train yourself a dragon.
….However when thing finally seem to be going fine something ruins everything.
After all these years the dragon hunters send another ship to collect the dragons and lock them on another ship. But to their surprise these weren’t simple dragon hunters, oh no, these were Pritshas, a tribe of merciless bloodthirsty warriors known not only for their perfect battling skills, but also for their mounts. Shadowscales – a type of dragon that lived far from the Archipelago, and it was better that way, for the shadowscales were cannibals, dragons that ate dragons much like our familiar deathsong, however it was much more aggressive and killed for sport. It is still unknown how the Pritshas managed to make the dragons serve them. Let’s just say that 7 student that have just trained their dragons weren’t enough to stop the enormous ship and all the hunters. Now their only mission is to find a way to free every dragon locked on the ship, will they succeed or will they fail?
So yeah that’s pretty much it XD, just another stop the dragon hunters and save the day cliché rp, but I though it’ll be fun!
We’ll start when they leave Berk and I’ll be throwing the plot twist to keep the story going.
As for the shadowscales I imagine them something like that but much smaller, say the size of a monstrous nightmare http://luffie.deviantart.com/art/Demonic-Dragon-280636447
And the Pritshas something like the cannibal tribes in game of thrones

Like all Strike Class dragons, Skrills have blazing speed, extreme intelligence, unique firepower, and are masters of stealth. What is unique about these dragons is that they are able to manipulate electricity, absorbing electrical energy from storm cloud and redirecting it back as powerful blasts.

So when can we start?
The woods were filled with morning sounds, birds chattered lightly in the trees, animals silently played in the deep undergrowth.
Staying low Azure stalked through the tall grass, moving at a slow steady pace. She stepped carefully, as her father had taught her, advancing in silence. Sudden motions and sounds would send her prey running. The target came into view, small round, red. If this were the real deal, and that wooden target was a deer, it could easily out run her.
Comind to a standstill, Azure eased an arrow to the string of her bow. As she pulled it back, the bow creaked. Instictivly, Azure froze. If her target had been a real animal, it would of noticed her, looking up and ready to spring. The arrow flew true skewering the target on the wooden beast's imaginary heart and lungs.
Azure pricked her way through the underground, her hand brushed the wooden target, then pulled out the arrow. The tip wasnt even remotely dented, or dulled. Azure slipped it back into her quiver. She slid her hood over her head then looked up at the sky. The sun! The time! She was supposed to meet the other rider's a the docks.
Azure was among the few without any dragon. She was quite comtempt with that. No dragon, no attetion.
'Maybe Ill get somehting stupid... or ugly. Then no body will want to talk to me.' This thought offered little comfort. Sighing Azure took off through the forest. Her loak billowed behind her, she could feel the items in both her satchels bounce up and down with her gate.
Azure leapt over bushes and trees, stealth completely forgotten. As she ran back to Berk, taking a worn out animal path, she noiced the older targets she suspended from trees and hidden in bushes a while ago. So, Azure decided to amke a game out of this.
She drew her bow, snapped an arrow to the draw string and pulled back still her hand reached her cheek. Then she let it fly, as she was running, she must of misjudged the target. The arrow hit it, but no where near the bullseye. So, she tried again, her arm working at the speed of lightning, rab a arrow, draw the bow, shoot. Edventually she began to get the hang of running and shooting like this. She htit nearly every target either on or around the bulls eye.
Suddenly, the forest disappeared. Azure hatled. The peaceful ton of berk streched out before her. Her gaze trailed downward, twoards the docks. A girl was already there, waiting.
The thought grumpily. Azure racved down the steady slope of the village until she ended up at the docks. She slowed to a walk, maade sure her hood as secure over her head, and slowly walked onto the wooden dock. Past the other girl, instictivly she shifted her shoulders back, to look smaller.
Westra ran through the village. "Cuse me, Parton me!" She said running into multiple vikings. Today she was going to a island to find dragon. She'd always wanted a dragon. Someone she could trust in times of need. A dragon that could trust her. She was getting tried of running into vikings so she went up to the closest house. She started climbing up the side when a women stuck her head out the window.
"Westra! Get off of my house or I'm telling your mother!"
"Sorry auntie! But this way is faster!" Yes she was climbing on her ajnt's house. She finally reached the top and looked over the village. It was a quite day. She loved quite days, this was the time she wished she could stay but it wouldn't be like this tomorrow. If it was quite today, the twins would do something tomorrow. The chief knew that too. So did every other viking in town. If she would've been home today, she would be barding her doors close.
But that was not the case today. She turned to the sea and the wind blew on her face, the hair blowing in the wind. This made her fell like a dragon. She couldn't wait until she had a dragon and she could fly over the ocean and d fell the wind in her face, for real.
Then she snapped back to life and looked and not the docks. Two girls were already there. She couldn't be the last one there. She started running on the house and jumped to the next. She did this while hearing stops and complains from other vikings. She tried to apologize to all of them back she was going to fast.
Then she finally made it to the entrance of the docks. She jumped off the last house and looked back. Viking were inspecting the damage of the houses she jumped on. Most of the houses were completely fine. But one of them she did slip on and loosened one of the tiles.
She quickly turned around and ran down the docks. She saw carts of chickens and weapons. One of the carts she actadently fell into. It happened to be the chicken one. She blew feathers out of her month and jumped out of the cart ignoring the yelling of the viking.
She finally reached the ship with the other girls and came to a screeching halt. Her helmet covered her eyes as she tried to stop. She lose her balance though and fell into the water. She pushed her helmet off of her eyes and looked up at the other girls and smiled.
"Thanks, my name is Westra. Nice to met you Yen." She said to the two girls. They helped her out of the water. "Sorry, helmet over eyes. Happens all the time. So who else is coming?"
This morning was like all the others for Rhaeyne. Well, excpet that today, she will leave Berk for the first time. She went to Gobber to ask for a few thing before she goes. Another girl was there. Gobber fixed her sword. They both looked happy about it. Rhaeyne waited until the girl left. She was really bad at making friends, so she avoided as many contact with people as she could.
"Hi Gobber. You know I'm in the team who leaves today. You know, the dragonless vikings." *Rhaeyne sighed.* (She always wanted a dragon. But she was always afraid of heights. She didn't wanted to get attached to a dragon, if she will never be able to ride it. She was fascinated about the bond dragon and rider can have. She was always jealous of it.) But now, for the very first time, I might have a chance. "I just came for my...stuff. And if you have any rubbish, I'd gladly take it."
"Your inventions are in Hiccup's old room. I collected a few stuff, that could be useful for you. They're there too."
Rhaeyne ran to the back, and grabbed as much stuff as she could. She went out, and wanted to say goodbye to Gobber, but he was busy with a patient. She just left instead.
She was packing her stuff. She was humming in herself. I won't do it if anyone can hear me. So it might be the last time for a while. She started to sing. She didn't had a good voice. It was rusty as his fathers, but certain songs sounded really good with it. Than she heared someone beside their hut, so she stopped. She strated thinking instead. I should find a dragon that can't fly. Or one that is afraid of heights. Who am I kidding? There's no such thing. Or maybe a Cave Crusher? Ahh they're just...not my type. Maybe an injured dragon... I could help him with my invention, and we could create a bond. We'll see... She finished packing, hugged his sister and left. (Her parents were working, she already said goodbye to them in the morning. )
Rhaeyne arrived at the wooden docks. Two girls were already there. And one in the water. She giggled to herself. But than got seroius again. She didn't said hi or anything. just sat down a little further. They were all waiting.
She saw another girl sit down. She tip toed over there. "Hey I'm Westra, what's your name?"
The other girl looked as f she were about to troduce herself. Azur shied away abbit, only to be saved by a 12 year old. No matter how crazy that sound, suddnely there she was. In the water, staring up at the teenagers witha a big goofy smile and round trusting eyes.
The girl, who appeared to be a bit older than her reached out twoards the kid and pulled her out of the water, introducing herself as Yennefer- Yen for short. The kid introduced herself as Westera, a pretty name, Azure had to admit. Azure tilted her wings back, trying to keep small, insignifigant. She silently observed, leaning against the wall.
Then another girl joined them, giggling at the sight of poor little, dripping wet Westera. Azure still diddnt say anything, too shy. What did hey think of her/ WHat if she weere judged... what if they found out.
Secret.Hidden.Safe What was her mother always told her.
She was not pleased to find out that she would be training a dragon, with this group of vikings.
"Y-you mean I'd be stuck with them?" She had asked.
"Well, thats not how I would of put it but... yeah." HE replied.
Azure slid down the wall into a sittign posistion. Maybe if she acted to scared.... but what kind of viking would she be then? A coward?
((Ooooh, I left for a bit today. Can someone catch me up on where everybody is at the moment?))
'Get over to the boat, Paz.'
'But there's only like a couple other people!'
'So let's wait for more to show up.'
Paz groaned in frustration, she had been arguing like this with herself for almost two minutes now, and she was beginning to think people might notice. She didn't mind being in big crowds, it was the small ones that bugged her. In a big crowd she wouldn't be as easily noticed if she did something stupid, but with a small group, especially with people she didn't know, she fells uncomfortable at first because she's afraid of sticking out like a sore thumb.
'Paz, just get to the boat.'
As Paz quietly took a seat, her eyes briefly swept across the dock surveying the others. So far there were only girls here, which she found a little odd, but figured it wouldn't stay that way for long. As she quickly studied each of them, two people stood out. The first was a girl that didn't appear to be much older than her who was sitting by herself with a hood over her head. In Paz's mind, she looked like someone who did not want to be talked to. The other person she noticed was who she figured to be the youngest one on the ship. Paz was always being teased about how young she looks, so she hoped she wouldn't have to worry about it on this trip.
After making her mental assessment, Paz got out a small knife from a satchel she brought for the trip and began whittling away at her ax handle. Anything she could do to pass the time and release the knots in her stomache.
'Pit... pat.. pit... pat'
Using a hunter's intuned hearing, Azure's head snapped up just instime to hear the quiet footsteps of a new comer step onto the docks. Her face was mostly neutrual but her eyes betrayed her.
Idmedianly she coudl tell that this girl, did not exactly want to be on the baot with them. Azure could amost feel the mental conflict. Azure observed as the girl sat down and pulle dout a knife, toying with it.
'Not exactly a social butterfly. Tryin gto releif her srtess by object. NErvous.Used to being invisible.. in fact, almost prefers it.'
She also noticed how this girl unconsiously scanned the area. Her eyes dragging only a milisecond longer on her and WSestra.
'Smart, observant.' She noted. Then Azure pulled her eyes away. Being silent and observing, she understood human body languge much beter than most. She turned to look at Yen who met her eyes with a light of understanding.
Her brain began spinning figuring this girl out. First she noticed her well crafted sword. She noticed how it was already ploished, clean, brand ne looking.
She cares deeply about that sword. However she is nervous. Polishing it even after its already been reworked. Obviously trying to keep her mind off something..' Azure's gaze flcikered to her face. 'Worried possibly. About what? She doesnt seem comfortable on the ship. Her posture is just a little bit rigid. No... maybe she is scared. No, she isnt... why cant i fgure you out?'
The posibility was there, straining at the back of her head this entire time.
'Seasick? A possibility. She might be weary of the ship itslelf. But that understanding. She may be just as good at reading expressions as I am. So smart, and bold. She will probably take up a leadership role in our gro--
Stop it Azure! This is exactly what mother warned you about!'
Azure looekd away quickly. She shouldnt figure peole out like this. No... it wasnt safe, nnot for her, not for anybody. She exhaled and tried to keep her mind going at a slow, nomral pace.
((If any ofthis isnt right, that is probably on purpose. Azure cant read minds and she needs flaws even in her observing.))
Rhaeyne was thinking in herself, when an other viking came closer to her. "Hey I'm Westra, what's your name?" "Hi, I'm Rhaeyne. Sooo...why don't you have a dragon? If it's not too personal..." She tried to have a conversation with a human being, but she was really bad at it. She didn't wanted to scare away the first person. She was waiting for the answer, when another girl leaned towards her. She was around her age. "Name's Yen, nice to meet you" She said with a warm smile. "Hi, Rhaeyne. Nice to meet you too." She tried to smile too, but it looked a lot more like a weak grin.
Another girl arrived at the docks. She was a little younger. She looked a little uncomfortable too. Huhh it's not only me. Great! She kept thinking. The boat...I've never been on a boat... I hope I won't be seassick. I wouldn't be surprised tho. I'm like the weakest viking ever lived on Berk. Ahhh...I have to do it for my dragon. He or she is somewhere out there waiting for me!! Hopefully... She totally forgot about the conversation she was trying to have. She turned back to Westra. "Sorry, I zoned out a bit. It happens a few time." She had a sorry-smile. "Where were we?"
Snæbjörn was at Gobber's, retrieving her sword from the blacksmith/dragon dentist who was amazing at maintaining two jobs at once. Because of making peace with the dragons, his requests for weapons decreased, but every now and then he had a customer ask for something. Wolf was one of his most active customers, for she always needed her sword sharpened or upgraded. She trained quite often both alone and with other vikings, some with dragons even. She was currently trying to find out what dragon she wanted. She concluded that Deadly Nadders were the most common dragon here. Sure, they were beautiful and fierce, but she felt like they just weren't right for her. She wanted an ice dragon, one that would represent her people and family back in Iceland. Speaking of her old home, once she got a dragon of her own, she wanted to pay them a visit, if they were just alive anyways. She hadn't seen them in 11 years. Anyways, Wolf's sword gotten dull often from her training. Gobber had suggested getting a new and more durable sword, but she refused. It was thing she had from her family that reminded her of them.
" Ah, here you are lass. Good luck on that quest." Gobber said, handing her the newly sharpened sword with a deadly sharp tip.
Wolf looked at her reflection in the dulled metal, before slipping into its sheath. She felt to make sure she had her mace in her belt, before heading down to the docks. Turns out, she was actually one of the last ones there. Five girls were already in the boat, waiting for the last few vikings to arrive so they could set sail. Snæbjörn was used to riding on boats, for it was the only way to travel to other islands, which see did a lot of when scouting. Plus, her people used boats all the time to travel through icey waters. Sometimes, the whole ocean would freeze over, preventing boat travel. Wolf loved the cold. Maybe she would find an ice-breathing dragon.
Wolf climbed onto the boat, remaining silent as she took a seat and looked over at the other girls. It seemed like she was the oldest of the bunch. She stared off towards the ocean, feeling exciting to finally able to find the dragon that she would spend the rest of her life with.
"We were talking about we not having a dragon. And the reason why is because my mom thinks I'm to young. I'm twelve and Gustoff even had a monsterous nightmare for a little while. So I asked my mom and she said I was to young and that all the dragons were taken. And I was like, there are dragon all over the archipelago, and I can't have one, come on mom! And she was like, you're too young and we don't have the room. Of course we do live in a tiny shack....... So why don't you have a dragon?" She asked her.
As Paz worked the blade of her knife throught the wood, her mind was abuzz about her fellow passengers. Three of them were having a conversation about why they don't have dragons, which made her think about what kind of dragon she would get. After thinking through a list of possible dragons, she began to realize the the fact that she had no idea what kind of dragons she would see on that island. She finally concluded that she would probably have to take whatever she got.
Suddenly, Paz began to get the uneasy feeling that someone was watching her. She discreetly glanced up at the hooded girl across from her. When their eyes met, Paz, unsure of what else to do, gave her a shy smile and went back to work. 'I wonder what her deal is?'
The sound of footsteps began to grow near as another girl approached the docks. She looked up long enough to notice the mace she was carrying. 'Note, don't get her mad. The last thing I need is another head injury.'
Paz's nerves were slowly untwisting, and she was almost done with the pattern she was carving on her ax handle. She loved personalizing it and wondered what she would do when she finally ran out of room. Suddenly Paz inhaled sharply as her knife made a small nick on her finger. 'Add it to the pile.' She sighed as she returned the knife to her satchel.
She began wondering how much longer until the others would arive and they'd be on their way.
Both Yen and Westra answered her quesiton. It was her turn. "Well, I have a quite unfortunate fear that stopped me to ever bond with a dragon... I'm not afraid of them...it's something else...But I hope I can find my partner-in-crime throughout the mission." She didn't wanted to tell anyone her fear. Onyl her family knew. She was afraid, that someone would might use it against her. And she didn't know these girl too well yet.
Yen stood up, and walked away. She was walking in circles. She seemed really nervous. Rhaeyne knew every type of nervousness. She was always worring about something. But she knew a lot of remedies too. She walked up to her. "Ummm....Yen?" Her voice was pretty quiet and low, but it looked like Yen heard her. "I couldn't help but notice that you look a little nervous. You don't have to tell me, why. I just wanted to help...Here! Take it! This is mint. I grew it. It helps me a lot when I'm nervous. The cold always calms me down. It might help for you too....I'll leave you with your thoughts before we leave..." She did as she said.
She climed abroad. A few girls were already on the ship. She searched for a place on the back of the ship. She sat down. She needed 2 minutes to realize. Ohh great...just great... I guess I'm seasick. Why am I not surprised? She took a few mint leaves and put them in her mouth. It calmed her down. She woke up early that day, and she was tired. She took out a wool-blanket and put her head on her bag. It was surprisingly comfy. She fell asleep in no time.
((sorry im late in joining. been busy this week)) ((are we on our way to the docks to start the adventure?))
Zar''s boots clomped on the wooden jetty as she raced to the small group. She nearly crashed into someone as she skidded to a halt. She teetered precariously over the edge of the dock, waving her arms to catch her balanace. She finally regained balance and looked at the others.
"Hi," she said a little shyly. "Sorry for the abrupt entrance,"
((was Zar supposed to be doing something before she got to the docks? if so ill add that later))
“Anyways, I’ll leave you for now, I’ll go take a walk around the dock… I just don’t like ships...”
Azure heard Yen's voice ringing from the other side of the boat she pciked up her head.
'Aha!' her brain went. Then quickly she mental constricted herself,
'Think slow, think normal... normal.' She inhaled slowly. Then steadied herself. Azure's mind was always whirling a mile a minuet, only when she was hunting or singing she was ever truly at peace.
A pained huff caught her attetion. Azure turned her gaze over to the girl with the axe, Paz was it? Appeared to have cut herself. Quickly Azure looked away, no, she couldnt let herself start thinking. Thats what got hr in trouble in the first place!.
She quietly sat upon the boat's slick deck, feeling the sea spray cooly against her pale skin. Azure was told she was pretty, bu frankly, she always envied the other girl's sleek simple hair. Her own was stringy long, it ha dno layers. Not that she particularly cared. She guessed it was from being exposed to the sea for long amounts of time.
Azure slipped her hand in one of her stachels and pulled out some yak jerky. She slowly began to nibble as she tried to clear her head.
She noticed another girl walk on, carrying a mace, she also noticed Yen's slip of posture FOr a brief second, then the moment of vurerbility was over. The girl had turned away, presumbaly to stew in.. grief was it? Huffing Azure once again forced herself to look away. No, it was rude, knowing almost everything there is to know about people who dont even know her own name.
Thats what her mum always told her, therefore thats how it should be.
'Finally, now we're talking!'
As Paz boarded the boat, she looked around. One of her favorite passtimes growing up was walking around the docks and watching people come in and out of Berk's harbor. It wasn't until then that she realized that, while she had been on many boats, she hadn't been sailing in the longest time.
'Man, I haven't been on a since... since the accident.'
Paz cringed a little at the thought. When she was 3, her parents had been sailing when a huge storm came and capsized their boat. It killed them both.
Paz shook her head slightly, 'So what, that was like 12 years ago, you don't even remember your parents well enough for it to matter.'
She decided to redirect her thoughts, looking over the side of the boat, watching the water softly rock the boat back and forth.
'I wonder if I'll get seasick? What's the island gonna be like? Are we gonna camp on the beach or farther inland? What kind of game is there gonna be? What's wrong with her?'
She managed to catch a couple glances at the hooded girl that was previously sitting across from her. Something was seriously bugging her. She couldn't tell what, and every bit of her curiosity wanted to ask.
'Nope, don't do it Paz. You know better.' She repremanded herself. The last thing she wanted was to annoy her with her pestering. She was notorious for her curiosity and naiveness, and was disliked because of it. Maybe if she kept her mouth shut for once, these strangers wouldn't mind her company.
'Yeah, let's see how long that lasts.' she scoffed at herself.
Opps, accidentally double posted.
When Rhaeyne woke up, they were already on the open water. She had to take a deep breath, to process that no land is seen near and far. She looked at her bag. She packed out a few stuff, and strated playing with them. The randomness was her strength. She loved to put stuff together, what if they might work. People sometimes tought she's crazy. But she never really cared.
She needed to keep her mind occupied. She was trying to make a tent kinda thing out of yak fur and old sharpless swords. It looked really bad, and she doubted any good will come out of this one, but she had fun.
When she realized her surrounding, it was getting dark. She could barely see. She lighted a lantern, and put on her goggles. She saw Yen. And Westra. And a few other girls she hasn't know yet. She kept working until she was tired again. She looked out and spotted a small island. It calmed her down, and she could fall asleep.
“Alright girls, listen up” Yen said with a loud clear voice, yet it was as firm as it was soft.
“Let’s get on the ship. We’ll be leaving shortly. There’s a few others left from what Hiccup had told me yesterday, but they can take another ship that will leave tomorrow”
Azure smirked. She called it. This girl will most likely end up leading them. Azure stood up silently and filed in after Paz, taking her place on the boat, near the end. Azure sat herself in a wooden seat which alike everything else was slick from the sea water.
Paz cast a few stolen glances her way, and Azure pretended not to notice. A lot fo things way ahrd to get past her keen eye. In fact, in those looks, she saw Paz's brain deeply at work. Shining with curiosity and regret? Greif? It seemed as if everybody here did not have a perfect past.
'The boat reminds her of something that happened deep in her past a tradgey. Hmm. She is also concerned about what we think of her.'
Honestly Azure did not have an opinion of the girl. She eyes scanned the rest of the boat. Yen appeared to ne chewing something in her mouth. It looked like a leaf.
'Mint?' Azure guessed. Her assumption of Yen's seasickness appeared to be corret, so logically it would have to be a stong smelling and tasting herb.
Azure looked out twoards the sea, it quite reminded her of her home in her small town. Her stomach lurched iwth homesickness and greif. She sighed and pulled her knees to her chest, hugging them and burryin her face. She wasnt crying, but this will be a long trip. And the more she looked at these fellow vikigns the more she woud try to figure them out.
She heard someone yell that it was time to get on the ship. She quickly scooped up some branches and grabbed some vines. She didn't know how long she was going to be on the ship and how bored she'd get. She went on deck and appoached the front of the boat. She dropped her twigs on the ground and looked out to see. She she saw seagulls flying around. She even spotted a thunderdrum swimming in the sea. She wondered what kind of dragon she would get. Deep down inside she wanted a sea dragon but at the she he'd sea a me time she wanted something cute and under estimated. Like a terrible terror.
Then thinking got boring and she thumped down on the deck. She grabbed one of the sticks that was straight with two smaller one poking out of the top. ((Aka the wood of a slingshot)) She pulled off her helmet and twisted it into the two sticks that were on the top, leaving holes in both of them. She pulled out a vine out of the pile and poked it through one of the holes. She pulled the other side of the vine through the other hole and tied a knot. She pulled the vine that was on the other hole and left it loose but tied a knot. She pulled back a vine to see how strong it was. It was very strong and stretchy. She nodded her head it approval.
She found a small pebble and put it in her weapon of justice. She pulled it back and aimed it and and girl who was looking out to see. And Westra let the pebble fly. She knew the pebble wouldn't hurt much. She quickly approached the girl before she turned around. "Hi, I'm Westra! What's your name?" She asked the girl.
Who were you asking exactly?
Paz was just thinking that the boat had gotten oddly quiet when a small object bumped into her head. Her eyes widened, 'What was that?!' She thought, still staring at the ocean below.
Suddenly a voice popped up behind her. "Hi, I'm Westera, what's your name?" Paz turned around. It was the kid from earlier, with a mischevious grin on her face.
Slightly confused by the young girl's actions, She answered, "Name's Topaz, but most people call me Paz. What was the rock for?"
Westra shugged. "Only to get your attention. And because I wanted to test this slingshot I just made!" She held the slingshot up at her. "Made only from vines and twigs! So, what kind of dragon do you want?"
'Okayyy... This kid's wierd.'
'What, like you were normal at that age? AT ALL!'
'True, at least she's got a knack for inventing, that'll come in handy.'
Paz pondered Westera's previous question. She then replied, "I'm not sure. I mean we have no idea what kind of dragons we're gonna see, so I guess I'll just get whatever comes. How 'bout you?"
It was only then that Paz realized that was the first time she said a word since she left the house that morning. That was an all time record for her.
